Due to a lack of food elsewhere, the beautiful Snowy Owl has found its way to New Hampshire
and the Seacoast. They seem to like open areas like airfields and marshes that remind them
of the tundra they come from. They can usually be found on the rooftops overlooking marsh-
es or on the tops of sand dunes or small perches like an old bird house. This photo was taken
by Robert and Mila Andersen of Andersen Family Dentistry in Littleton NH. If you want to

New Hampshire Moose Study Update__
Moose biologist Kristine Rines
recapped the progress of the
moose mortality study that got
underway in northern New
Hampshire in January of 2014.
This is the first year of a three
year study being undertaken by
the New Hampshire Fish and
Game Department in partner-
ship with the University of New
Hampshire.
A total of 43 moose were cap-
tured and collared during the
first two weeks of the study,
very close to the anticipated
number (45). For this initial
project work, Fish and Game

contracted with a specialized
helicopter wildlife crew from
Aero Tech, Inc., to capture and
collar moose for the study,
using net-guns and tranquilizer
darts. Extremely cold tempera-
tures made the work challeng-
ing, because it affected some
equipment.
Biologists took blood samples
from the collared moose, as
well as hair samples, fecal sam-
ples and winter ticks.
Another 45 moose are expected
to be collared next January, as
the study continues. No addi-
tional moose will be collared in
New Hampshire in the third and
final year of the study. The col-
lars typically transmit for about
four years; a graduate student
from UNH will monitor the ani-
mals for as long as the collars
keep transmitting. According to
N.H. Fish and Game moose
biologist Kristine Rines,
researchers will look at how
long the moose live, and try to
determine cause of death when
they die.
Background on the moose mor-
tality study underway in New
Hampshire, and a link to photos
and video from the 2014 moose
collaring, may be found at
http://www.wildnh.com/Newsr
oom/2014/Q1/moose_study_up
date.html.
Rines also addressed questions
on the status of New
Hampshire's moose population,
explaining the reasons Fish and
Game is undertaking the study
at this time.
"Moose are not on the verge of
disappearing from the New
Hampshire landscape, but they
are declining," said Rines.
"Regional moose populations
are facing some serious threats.
We don't know what the future
holds for our moose, but we’re
hopeful that a combination of
research and management
efforts will allow us to do all we
can to secure the future of New
Hampshire’s invaluable moose
resources."
Through the study, researchers
hope to find out if natural mor-
tality has increased among New
Hampshire's moose since a sim-
ilar study was conducted here
ten years ago (from 2001-
2006). The current research
effort is a more directed study
focused primarily on mortality.
"It's clear that we need to learn
more about the causes of moose
mortality and how our changing
weather patterns may be affect-
ing both the causes and rates of
mortality in our moose herd,"
Rines said.
Researchers will be looking
closely at whether the increase
in moose mortality and reduc-
tion in reproductive success in
New Hampshire is because of
winter tick, or if additional dis-
ease and parasite problems or
other causes of mortality are in
evidence.
"If this trend is driven primarily
by winter tick, then every year
will be different, because
weather is such a big player,"
said Rines. "What we learn will
help our moose management
team anticipate and respond to
changing moose mortality and
productivity."
The study, funded by federal
Wildlife Restoration dollars
with the support of matching
funds from UNH, may help
answer a question on the mind
of many Granite State residents
and visitors: What's in store for
New Hampshire moose?

Hampshire's moose population,

“Berman’s Bits”
by Dave Berman
“Incessantly scouring the uni-
verse (and my back yard) for the
weird, the wacky, and the stupid
so you don’t have to.”
Greetings, and Happy New
Day! (You have to be a more-
than-one-time reader to know
what that is.) What’s today’s res-
olution? Oh, yeah - Happy
Valentine’s Day as well.
I really hate being the one to tell
you this, but Froot Loops cereal,
in spite of various colored pieces
are all the same flavor. That
piece of investigative work
comes to you courtesy of
Foodbeast and Reddit, but the
information isn’t exactly new:
The Straight Dope revealed it
back in 1999. The colors don’t
correspond to flavors in any sort
of meaningful or identifiable
way. No word on whether Trix or
Fruity Pebbles are carrying out
the same deception. (As an aside,
I see by the box that Cocoa
Krispies is a Product of Mexico
[the only one I checked so far],
and even worse – my Krabby
Patties are a product of China!
It’s getting harder and harder to
buy American when less and less
is made in America.)
Maybe the cruise industry needs
to better follow regulations... oh,
wait, most are registered in coun-
tries that either have weak regu-
lations or poorly enforced ones.
Must be the maritime version of
our sending jobs overseas.
Familial love. An 11-year-old
girl was killed at her home when
she was stabbed 40 times. Her
14-year-old half-sister has been
charged with the murder. The
Medical Examiner said the 11-
year-old girl suffered 30 stab
wounds to her neck, chest and
arms; three slash wounds to her
face; four defensive wounds to
her left hand, and a defensive
wound to her left thumb.
According to prosecutors, she
later recanted her story about a
home-invasion. The 14-year-old
told police she was upset by
being hit by her half-sister the
night before. The 14-year-old
also told police her half-sister
wasn’t thankful for all the things
she did for her. [CBS] Sounds
almost like a “Criminal Minds”
episode I remember.
Just because: a tip of the key-
board to Plain Jane’s Diner in
Rumney. We try to get there at
least once a week. They are
friendly, accommodating, and
consistent. If you go, try the
Farmers Burger or chicken ten-
ders. Love ‘em.
Certainly not related to the last
Bit, methane gas from 90 flatu-
lent cows exploded in a German
farm shed damaging the roof and
injuring one of the animals,
police said. High levels of the gas
had built up in the structure until
“a static electric charge caused
the gas to explode with flashes of
flames.” One cow was treated for
burns, a police spokesman said.
[Reuters] Maybe this is what
happened with Mrs. O’Leary’s
cow.
Survey says.... One website ad
presented me with the following
question: “Which of the follow-
ing Hemorrhoid brands have you
seen advertised online in the past
month? (Select all that apply.)”
There were five brands listed
plus an option for “None of the
above.”) I am not sure why, but I
thought of election ballots: (1)
Politicians as a pain in the back-
side and (2) the desperate need
for the same last option for voters
(“None of the above.”).
Ad: Need a guest speaker for
your group, speech coach, writ-
ing coach, proof reader, etc? I am
now booking for the spring sea-
son.
From Yahoo! News, the Texas
State Board of Education will
vote on tightening rules for who
can serve on review panels that
scrutinize textbooks for Texas
classrooms, suggesting that
teachers or professors — not vol-
unteers from the general public
— be given priority for subjects
in their areas of expertise. Now
that’s a novel idea, educators
having a say in what they teach....
So at least one person reads this
column. I went to a sandwich
shop I mentioned a couple of
columns ago and asked, “So,
what are you out of today?” He
answered, “Are you the guy who
wrote about that in your col-
umn?” etc. After a few remarks
were exchanged (pleasant), I
went ahead and ordered.
Unfortunately, they were out of
Italian bread... again.
A few quips from Phyllis Diller:
(1) Cleaning your house while
your kids are still growing up is
like shoveling the walk before it
stops snowing. (2) Burt Reynolds
once asked me out. I was in his
room. (3) Housework can’t kill
you, but why take a chance?
Finally, several severed cattle
heads propped up behind barbed
wire along an Oregon road
spooked some neighbors, but the
owner said they were just being
dried for sale (forgive my igno-
rance, but who buys dried cow
heads and why?). The Portland
Tribune reported the heads were
clearly visible to passersby. One
woman wrote, “Why out towards
the road, facing the road where
wild animals can get to them,
where everyone can see them?”
Another resident who asked not
to be identified saw the heads
while jogging. “I thought, ‘holy
cow (no pun intended, I am sure)
that is the most disgusting
thing,’” the runner said. “And
they stink now.” The cow heads
belong to Port of St. Helens
Commissioner Colleen
DeShazer, who told the Spotlight
they were being dried out so they
could be sold.
Later.

I am just now realizing how
much I’ve missed the moun-
tains. Slowly but surely we are
getting our feet beneath us, our
legs strong, and our hearts and
lungs back to where they
belong. We’ve taken to long
woods walks and have even
made some gentle climbs up
along the Boulder Loop Trail,
Peaked Mountain, and the less
gentle Doubleheads here in
Jackson. By spring I hope to
have our bodies in prime hik-
ings shape.
Over the past year of not being
able to get out on the trails
much, due first to my injuries
and then to Atticus's cancer and
chemotherapy, my mind has
drifted to special places we've
been through the years. At
moments of medition while
watching the chemo needle find
it’s way into one of Atticus’s
front legs I’ve wandered certain
trails in my imagination and
longed to return to them again.
One such day summer day sev-
eral summers ago when we
were somewhat new to hiking,
Atticus and I parked the car at
the Oliverian Brook Trail.
From there I pedaled my bike
with Atticus sitting in the basket
looking, not unlike, E.T. along
the early morning hours of the
Kancamagus Highway. Oh,
how funny it was to see some of
the truckers and the looks they
gave us as they went in the
opposite direction.
I chained the bike to a tree at
the start of the Pine Bend Brook
Trail; we climbed up to North
Tripyramid, across to Middle,
and then South. Heading down
the slide just a bit we took the
winsome Kate Sleeper Trail
across the peaks of the same
names, walking through moose
country.
Eventually, we took a short nap
on top of the ledges of
Whiteface, doubled back to hit
the summit, and then continued
on to Passaconaway. From
there it was back down to our
car.
I know there are more prolific
ranges in the White Mountains,
but the Sandwich Range is per-
haps my favorite. It has a fairy
tale feel to it. Never once do
you get above treeline, but there
are plenty of views to drink in
nonetheless.
During one day in one of the
winters when we were attempt-
ing to do ninety-six peaks in
ninety days, we attempted the
same seventeen mile hike in
reverse. We had a friend with
us, and instead of using a bicy-
cle, we dropped his car at the
Pine Bend Brook Trail to wait
for us.
Unfortunately, things did not
turn out all that well for us. By
the time we reached the nine-
mile mark; our friend wanted
to call it quits, so we headed
down the Downes Brook Trail,
even though it hadn't been bro-
ken out that winter. It was a
nightmare of deep powder up to
knees and sometimes to our
hips. Atticus was swallowed
whole by the drifts and the
eleven stream crossings proved
to be treacherous. We ended up
breaking through into the cold
river a couple of times. When
we finally made it off of the
mountains we had more than a
mile road walk ahead of us in
ten degree weather in the dark
of night.
Although things didn't work out
for us that day and Atticus and I
had to return the next day to
climb the remaining two four
thousand foot peaks we missed
because of our friend's desire to
bail, one of my favorite memo-
ries of those first three winters
was that road walk.
How often do you get to walk
down the Kanc at night, kept
company by the bright moon
and brilliant stars casting long
shadows of the pine trees at our
feet? It felt like a Calvin and
Hobbes cartoon with the heav-
enly firmament everywhere
above us, wild and frozen
nature around us, and civiliza-
tion nowhere in sight.
I think of both of those hikes
quite often and this summer I'm
considering returning there. But
there may be a problem. I'm
still young, but Atticus is get-
ting older. He'll be twelve in
March, and we've always done
things as partners. I suppose I
shall see how he is doing as the
time gets closer.
I was just on the phone with my
good friend Steve Smith at the
Mountain Wanderer, and we
were talking about route
options. He knows the score,
and as often has been the case,
we discussed the pros and cons
of each trail.
Considering how old Atticus is
getting my desire to make sure
he still enjoys our hikes, and
keeping an eye on health, I real-
ize we may never get back to
some of the places we've been
to in the past. But knowing
how much he loves the places I
often look at him and think of
the aging Bilbo Baggins in the
beginning of the Lord of the
Rings when he talks of his age
and desire to revisit some
places from his youth. He
exclaims to Gandalf, “I want to
see mountains again, Gandalf,
mountains, and then find some-
where where I can rest. In peace
and quiet, without a lot of rela-
tives prying around, and a
string of confounded visitors
hanging on the bell. I might
find somewhere where I can
finish my book. I have thought
of a nice ending for it: and he
lived happily ever after to the
end of his days.”
While considering the factors
I've mentioned above, I think if
Atticus is up to it, we'll do
things a little differently this
summer. We'll head up Pine
Bend Brook, reach the three
peaks of the Tripyramids, hop
over to the Sleepers and walk
where the moose love to walk,
and the only other company are
birds and the breeze, and then
we'll skip Whiteface and
Passaconaway and head down
the Downes Brook Trail. This
will turn an eighteen mile hike
into a thirteen mile hike and do
away with a slight climb up
Whiteface at the end of the Kate
Sleeper Trail and the stiffer
ascent up Passaconaway.
This means we'll get all our
climbing out of the way early in
the day, then have the rest of it
for the flat walk across the
Sleepers and the descent down
along Downes Brook on a
pleasant day where we can
appreciate the water.
We’ve now passed the halfway
mark of winter. There’s just
about five weeks left of the sea-
son, but the green of warmer
days seems closer as I sit here
doing some February day-
dreaming.

events, competitors shoot indoors
from 18 meters (approximately
20 yards). The 10 ring on the tar-
get is 2 cm in diameter, and there
is a 60 arrow qualifier followed
by head to head bracket shoot-off
eliminations.
Wilkin has competed in two
other World Cup events,
Marrakesh, Morocco in
November 2013 and Telford,
England the weekend of January
23rd. In Marrakesh, Morocco,
the airlines lost his bow so Joe
borrowed a USA teammate’s
bow and proceeded to knock out
Sebastien Peineau in the 16s
eliminations, then lost to defend-
ing World Cup Champion Braden
Gellenthien in a one arrow shoot-
off, placing 9th in the competi-
tion.
The World Cup event in Telford,
England included 230 competi-
tors, and Wilkin was at the top of
the leaderboard for the first 30
arrows of day one, qualifying
with a score of 297/300. Joe was
seeded 30th in the top 32 archers
of the competition with a final
score of 586/600. He went down
against #3 seed Mike Schoesser
6-4(149-146) in shoot-off elimi-
nations, who proceeded to win
silver. Wilkin placed 17th.
Wilkin is sponsored by Kittery
Trading Post where he works in
the Archery Department. Wilkin
was the 2012 US Champion in
the Collegiate Men’s Bow
Hunter Division.

announce that it is accepting
applications for its
Conservation License Plate
Grant Programs – also called
“Moose Plate” grants – through
April 25, 2014.
The Department receives a per-

directly back into communities
through grant programs facili-
tated by the Department’s three
divisions: the Division of
Historical Resources, the State
Library and the State Council
on the Arts.
While the projects funded by
each division have specific
requirements, all focus on
awarding grants to projects that
involve restoration, preserva-
tion, and/or conservation of
publicly owned items signifi-
cant to New Hampshire’s cul-
tural heritage.
Department of Cultural

Hall/Town Hall in Wolfeboro,
the conservation and digitiza-
tion of Justice Elwin L. Page’s
manuscript detailing the history
of White’s Opera House in
Concord, and the conservation
of two murals with Native
American themes by William
Abbot Cheever in Hooksett.

Town Meeting Day
NOTICE
There’s been much talk recently
about the major decline in the
area’s moose population. So
much so, that Fish and Game
officials have been dropping the
nuber of moose hunting permits
each year for the last several.
We have run a number of sto-
ries on the decline of the moose
population, including the
moose study story in this issue
and felt it necessary to voice my
concern directly to the NH Fish
& Game Department.
The following is a short letter I
recently sent to them:
I own a small local newspaper
in Warren NH called the
Northcountry News. I have
always stood behind much o
fthe thought process of the NH
Fish & Game Department and
have always run the press
releases sent to us. In fact, I sit
on the board of directors for
the “Forever Locked” locked
moose project along with sev-
eral other people including a
few Conservation Officers.
The Northcountry News was
also one of the initial donors
towards that important educa-
tional exhibit, which I still
believe is the best out there.
With all the news of the moose
declining in NH, I am starting
to get weary of promoting the
yearly moose lottery any
longer. With the very rapid
decline of moose in the state,
especially in our local region
of the White Mountains, I just
can’t comprehend why the lot-
tery is not dramatically
reduced for a period of time to
see if the population may
bounce back, even if just a lit-
tle.
I do understand that the Fish
& Game Department makes a
lot of money from the lottery,
but what happens when the
moose are so scarce that they
can’t be hunted any longer? or
make the department money
any longer?
My personal feeling on this
matter is, I think that the New
Hampshire Fish and Game
Department must remain
proactive in their future
endeavors and not be reactive
after it’s too late. I understand
you are continuing to study the
ongoing decline and problems
with the NH moose population,
but please don’t wait until it’s
too late, before trying to
improve their population.
Even NH Fish and Game
Moose Biologist, Kris Rines
admits the continued decline of
NH moose and their popula-
tion is uncertain. The fact is,
Rines admits that around 1996
there were approximately
7,600 moose in the state and
the current population is at
about 4,400 animals. Not quite
a 50% reduction, but certainly
not very far from it in the
realm of things. That’s only a
period of 18 years. So what
happens over the next 10-20
years!
Rine’s also stated in a recent
question and answer article,
and I quote, “we’re most con-
cerned about the White
Mountains and central New
Hampshire, where we have
seen significant reductions in
recent years (since 2007).”
Albeit NH Fish & Game has
reduced the number of permits
granted for these regions, but
again, let’s not wait until it’s
too late to be proactive and do
something about it. Yes, even if
it means a loss of money from
permits for a period of time.
End Letter -
My concern is this: Let us hope
that the greed and need for
money to run the NH Fish &
Game Dept., does not outweigh
their ability to see that the per-
mit process may need to be
reduced for a period of time.
All in all, I remain hopeful. I
have faith in the NH Fish &
Game Department and feel they
will do what is correct and nec-
essary for themselves, the
sportsmen and for the wildlife.
After all, they do tell us that
they are the guardians of the
state's fish, wildlife and marine
resources. We’ll see.
Nobody Asked,
Just My Opinion... ~BEF
A month ago I heard many ads
in favor of Northern Pass. I
should have written then but
better late than never.
One ad mentioned using the
revenues from the Northern
Pass to “spruce up the place.”
I do not think New Hampshire
needs sprucing up. We have
mountains, lakes and beaches.
Adding more power lines is not
sprucing up the place. Put
them underground…. All of
them won’t spruce it up but will
make it look worse. NH is
blessed with natural beauty.
People come all over to see our
foliage. I think in the spring
when the leaves on the trees are
just starting to pop, is just, if
not more beautiful with the dif-
ferent hues and shades of green
than the autumn colors. I do
not think anything could make
them more beautiful and more
power lines…. No…. I do not
think so.
I travel in Bedford NH, where
there is a row of huge power
lines. The radio in my car has
so much static that I have to
turn it off. What is it like for the
people living next to power
lines? What would the effect be
on adding more lines? Does
anyone know and if they do will
they tell us, the people of NH?
I kept hearing our rates would
go down. But no figures of how
much it would go down was
ever said. Would it be 10 cents
a year… Technically the rate
would be down but is it worth
it?
Reports say it would add energy
to the New England power grid.
So does the electricity go to our
southern neighbors and do
their rates go down? What
about NH residents getting first
dibs to the lower rate and if
anything left over, we can help
our southern neighbors.
I want to know exactly how
much cheaper my electric bill
will be if we pass Northern
Pass. I want to know why can’t
all the power lines be under
ground? I have questions….
Will someone give me an honest
answers?

Remember the words "give
peace a chance". Sounds like in
the 60's. History repeats itself.
Some find it meaningless.
Every member of congress
should remember Cory
Remsburg and every veteran
just like Cory, who has suffered
traumatic injuries and all the
other veterans who's injuries
we can not see, and all the other
veterans who have served.
Remember our own Sugar Hill
Police Chief, Jose Pequeno,
who was severely injured, and
all those we don't know person-
ally.
Lets prevent more of this by
seeking peaceful solutions. War,
agression only creates more of
the same. Not only the tragic
cost of lives and injuries but the
cost during and certainly
"after." To build up what we
destroyed. The lives, their fami-
lies and healing of our vets, can
never be forgotten, nor forgiven
or ignored. "Out of sight out of
mind." They are never out of my
mind. We should do as this
President has said, try every
peaceful solution first, extend
that olive branch.
Why is it some want War all the
time. President Obama has
extended his hand to those in
congress from the very first day,
only to be turned away.
Hopefully with our concern for
peaceful solutions with other
countries, we’ll get a better
reception than what the presi-
dent received right here at
home. But this President will
keep right on trying, at home
and on foreign lands.
Every try is better than losing a
life of a vet, and destroying
families. Its not just our coun-
try, its the country we are
invading. Its the people who
have no idea what they did to
deserve this, because of their
Warmongers, they too have suf-
fered. "It is better to try and
have failed than to never have
tried at all".
Don't support anyone that does-
n't want to give "peace a
chance." Whether that person is
a man or a woman. I know oth-
ers are sick of obstructionism,
hate. They should be held
accountable at all times. We
don't want or need people like
this to represent us and destroy
our countries values here
around the world. Its time, now
is the time. Its February, the
month to show a little Love.
"What you are, will show in
what you do".

HELPFUL HINTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS!
The pantry is located under the ambulance service
and is open Fridays from 1-3 PM.
The Pantry was thrilled to receive two separate local bread donations
in January. Andra House, owner of Andra's Bread, baked several dif-
ferent types of bread and rolls and left them off for us. The bread is
baked by Andra in her residential kitchen in Pike. Gloria Avery
dropped off some baked pumpkin and banana breads that the kids
from the after-school program at Warren Village School made. We
are so grateful for these community donations. Thanks so much
Andra and the kids from WVS! YUM!

Doctors at the Johns Hopkins University
recently published the results of a research study
on hearing loss that everyone over 50 needs to
know. Even if your hearing is perfect!
The study
1
showed that older adults who had
some type of problem with hearing were:
32 percent more likely to be admitted to the
hospital
36 percent more likely to have longer stretches
of illness or injury (lasting more than 10 days)
57 percent more likely to have deep episodes
of stress, depression or bad mood (for more
than 10 days)
And since hearing loss often happens very
slowly over time, the last person to notice your
hearing loss is...you!
Just like visiting grandparents saying how big
the grandkids are getting, but the parents don’t
really notice any difference because they’re around
the kids all the time. It’s the same way when you
slowly lose your hearing.
On top of that, the Johns Hopkins doctors say
that because hearing loss may lead to other serious
issues, it can put more of a strain on your health
care resources. And with all the craziness going on
with health care these days, it can be a real blessing
any time you can cut through the mustard to stay
one step ahead of illness (and two steps ahead of
long hospital stays!) Plus…
It can be something like wax buildup or an
infection. And since it’s always better to be safe
than sorry, we want to offer our help.
As part of our community outreach program, we
at Sound Advice Hearing recently sent out strict
instructions to the licensed professionals and staff
at all of our local area clinics. We will be offering
FULL hearing health examinations completely free
of charge for anyone who requests one during the
month of February.
Experience shows that it’s worth getting a
comprehensive hearing exam every year or two
even if you’re pretty sure nothing is wrong. This is
because the exam may reveal early warning signs
of a more serious issue!
Many doctors and health practitioners also agree
that in addition to staying on top of the normal stuff
like your blood pressure and cholesterol, having
your hearing checked regularly is important to your
overall health.

All 35 of our clinics throughout New England
have been preparing to conduct these free hearing
examinations for you and for any friends or family
you care to tell. But, there’s a catch (Hey, there had
to be a catch, right?)
This one is pretty painless. We just need you to
make a quick phone call and setup an appointment
for your exam. We ask this because our clinics can
get pretty busy at times and if you just show up,
there’s a good chance you might have to wait for
an hour or two. And nobody wants that.
All you need to do next is just give us a call at
603-536-4880 and ask for extension 6313.
By the way, when we say this hearing exam is
free, we mean absolutely FREE: Free of cost, Free
of hassles, Free of any pressure or obligation and
Free of slick salesman trying to sell you stuff you
don’t need!
So, give us a quick call at 603-536-4880 and
make sure to ask for extension 6313 and one of
our friendly folks will take just a few minutes to
schedule your exam for whatever time works best
for you.
P.S. Please call as soon as possible because we are
limited in how many of these exams we can do
during February.
P.P.S. Also, if you care to tell a friend or family
member, please ask them to use the same extension
number when they call in. Thanks!
If You’re Over 50, You Might Be Shocked To
Learn How Hearing Loss Has Recently Been
Linked With Other Serious Health Issues!

Inspiring Words for You!
Dear Friends, I would like to speak to
you about what the Bible says love is.
1Corinthians13 ...but have not love, I am
nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does
not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It
is not rude, it is not self-seeking, It is not
easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with
the truth. It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres. Love never
fails. So as you're buying your chocolates and
gifts this holiday, maybe consider this
scripture as the best gift of all to give the one
you love. God bless you.

Legion Speedway News____________________________________
WES Celebrates 100 Days of School
Wentworth Elementary School celebrated the 100th day of
school on Thursday, January 30th. During the afternoon,
students were split into teams and participated in many
activities such as a hoop shoot, Fruit Loop necklace mak-
ing, Lego building, 100 exercises (jumping jacks, sit-ups,
push-ups, squats, etc.) and much more. Children brought in
items to be judged in various categories. The winner of the
Most School Spirit was a cake brought in by Karmindy
Ingle (see inset pic.) Picture is our Kindergarteners sport-
ing their 100’s Day glasses. - NCN Courtesy Photo
Si Allen owner of the Legion is
pleased to share the following
news.
Mikes Automotive of Tilton, NH
will sponsor the Dirt Modifieds.
Peanut's Auto of Enfield, NH
will sponsor the Supper Streets.
Bond Auto Parts will be the
sponsor of the newly created
Pure Stocks.
Enfield Garage has picked up
sponsorship of the Out Law
Mini Stocks.
The Legion Speedway will open
with a car show at Walmart in
Plymouth, NH May 4 followed
by test and tune at the speedway
and an enduro.
Opening day for the racing sea-
son will be May 11th.
The Legion Speedway has
become the only dirt track for
auto racing in New Hampshire
with the closing of the Canaan
track. With this in mind Si Allen
has forge ahead with expansion
and improvements to the
Wentworth facility.
The Legion will also add a dri-
ver's point fund program and a
kids club.
The regular show at the Legion
Speedway will consist of dirt
modifieds, super streets, pure
stocks, and outlaw mini stocks.
The 2014 season will also see
Sprint Cars of New England,
Granite State Mini Sprints, out-
law midgets, North East Mini
Stocks and other various divi-
sions frequenting the speedway.
A special show between the
Legion Speedway and the Bear
Ridge Speedway will be held in
June. The "Super Four
Challenge" will place the Super
Streets of the Legion and the
Limited Late Models of Bear
Ridge Speedway in the same
line up on race day. This his-
toric event will start at Bear
Ridge in Bradford, VT on June
7th,and travel across the
Connecticut River to
Wentworth, NH on June 4th.
There will be four races for the
challenge with two at the Ridge
and two at the Legion weather
permitting. The "Challenge"
will be to win all four and take
home a $500 bonus.
Discussions are under way
between management at both
dirt tracks for special events.
Anyone interested in sponsoring
such events should contact
either speedway and make you
support known.
A topless night for the mods and
360 sprints is in its planning
stage at this writing.
Hope to see you at the races in
2014!

What’s all this
about Wheat?
A reader asked about natural
sugar substitutes. Most often
listed are honey, organic maple
syrup, molasses, date sugar,
brown rice syrup, stevia and
truvia. That said, we have to
ask: what is driving our craving
for sweets? We can abuse any
of the above as much as the
chemical concoctions that lace
our prepared food and bever-
ages do.
During WWII, sugar was
rationed and we simply ate less
of it. We ate smaller portions of
dessert and icing on cakes was
minimal. Studies both here and
in Europe showed less tooth
decay and increased physical
health amongst the general pop-
ulation. After the war, we grad-
ually resumed and surpassed
our previous sugar consump-
tion. The one inch frostings on
cakes never returned but sugar
was gradually added to every-
thing we bought in cans, bot-
tles, and boxes. No surprise,
tooth decay returned, general
health declined, and sickness
insurance became a hot item.
Insurance continues to be on
center stage in everyday news
and governmental debates.
Also, during WWII, when there
was a bread shortage in Europe,
Willem-Karel Dicke, a Dutch
physician, noticed that celiac
(abdominal) disorders lessened,
only to recur when Sweden
dropped bread into the
Netherlands from relief planes.
Today one in 133 people have
celiac disease (or 2 million peo-
ple in the US.)
So, what is it about wheat that
louses us up? Physician
William Davis, in his book,
Wheat Belly, traces the devel-
opment of wheat from
Paleolithic times to today. It
seems the original wheat had 14
chromosomes in its genetic
structure. Today’s wheat, after
centuries of hybridization, has
42 chromosomes, and a much
higher gluten and carbohydrate
content.
In early times, wheat represent-
ed a small part of the diet.
Today, wheat is present at every
meal, and in most snacks, and,
like sugar, we’ve gone over-
board devouring it. The aver-
age American eats 133 lbs. of
wheat per year and most of us
shudder at the thought of limit-
ing our bread, crackers,
muffins, cakes, cereals, pies,
pizza, waffles, and much more.
So we have sugar and wheat
riding in tandem and making
health a challenge for us mainly
because we’ve gone overboard
in our consumption. Sugar and
wheat might be termed national
allergies that are eroding our
health. Usually, when we find
we are allergic to something,
we eliminate the offender.
Whether we choose to eliminate
one or both of the culprits, it’s
helpful to think about adding
more whole foods that are both
sweet and satisfying, like yams,
winter squash, apples, nuts,
leafy greens, carrots, and gua-
camole. We can try out almond
or coconut flour, quinoa, and
ginger root. We may end up
concocting creative potlucks on
the sweetest adventure ever!

Brewing a Cup of Tea
It's winter, and I'm teaching
kids until Springtime. The
quantity of coughs, sneezes,
running noses, and sore throats
that I encounter on a daily basis
has now surpassed what I can
count on my ten fingers.
So, not surprisingly, I've come
home with a cold. Again.
I'm stubborn, though, and gen-
erally hopeful that just a little
more sleep will be enough to
kick my immune system into
high gear. Sooner or later
though, it becomes clear that
that’s not quite enough.
At this point, I turn to the dark-
er corners of our kitchen
shelves and pull out a collection
of jars. No two look quite alike:
a pint jar of oregano, a rubber
ring quart of calendula, a wide
mouth jar of mint, a painted
quart and half with raspberry
leaves, an old honey tub filled
with nettle (harvested, dried,
and gifted by my mother), a
large red-topped jar of holy
basil, and a tiny vial of echi-
nacea tincture (gifted from my
sister - our echinacea patch is
not yet that substantial!). A
strand of mullein hangs, dried,
in the corner.
These are our medicines. We
do have an old (likely outdated)
bottle of aspirin, and a handful
of ibuprofen for a range of
emergencies. But by and large,
I prefer plants to pills. So this
little apothecary, a bit of sum-
mer dried and jar-ed, becomes
my prevention and my prescrip-
tion.
Some are for specific symp-
toms, while others are general
tonics. Mullein, for example, is
the antidote to respiratory con-
gestion (yes, it really works!).
Echinacea, raspberry leaf, and
nettle are bitter immune boost-
ers – you can taste it in their
dark, earthy, healthy flavor.
Mint and oregano help an upset
stomach.
Through reading and testing I
have, over time, created my
own medicine. I can't guaran-
tee your own experience. But
for us, it makes sense that our
health is cultivated from the
same dirt and the same land-
scape within which our lives are
blossoming.

plantings now! Contact Beth

etable plantings, or small

Dear EarthTalk: Does the fact
that we’ve had such a cold and
snowy winter mean that global
warming might not be such a
big problem after all?
-- Lacey L., Lynchburg, VA
It’s tempting to think that the
cold air and snow outside augur
the end of global warming, but
don’t rejoice yet. According to
the Union of Concerned
Scientists (UCS), weather and
climate are two very different
beasts: “Weather is what’s hap-
pening outside the door right
now; today a snowstorm or a
thunderstorm is approaching.
Climate, on the other hand, is
the pattern of weather measured
over decades.”
Isolated weather events and
even seasonal trends are not an
indication of global warming’s
existence one way or another,
and most climatologists agree
that the carbon pollution we
have been spewing into the
atmosphere for the past century
is leading to more frequent and
intense storms of every kind
and causing greater temperature
swings all around the planet. In
short, the harsh winter we are
having shouldn’t be viewed as a
refutation of global warming,
but rather as further evidence of
a growing problem.
“There is a clear long-term
global warming trend, while
each individual year does not
always show a temperature
increase relative to the previous
year, and some years show
greater changes than others,”
reports the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA). The
agency chalks up these year-to-
year fluctuations to natural
processes such as El Niño or
volcanic eruptions, but points
out that, regardless, the 20
warmest years on record have
occurred since 1981, while the
10 warmest were in the past 12
years. And global average tem-
peratures have risen by 1.4°F
overall since the early 20th cen-
tury.
According to Becky Oskin of
LiveScience.com, shrinking
polar ice caps as a result of
global warming in recent
decades are one factor that may
be contributing to the cold
weather in North America this
winter. “One way the shrinking
ice changes weather is by push-
ing winter air south,” she
reports. “When the stored ocean
heat gradually escapes in
autumn, it changes the pattern
of an atmospheric wind called
the polar vortex, streaming
frigid Arctic air into North
America and Europe.”
Meanwhile, a 2012 study by
researchers Jennifer Francis
and Stephen Vavrus concluded
that intense warming in the
Arctic has caused changes to
the jet stream that regulates air
circulation around the planet,
potentially leading to stronger
winter storms hitting the east-
ern seaboard of the U.S.
And what about all that snow?
“Hotter air around the globe
causes more moisture to be held
in the air than in prior seasons,”
reports UCS. “When storms
occur, this added moisture can
fuel heavier precipitation in the
form of more intense rain or
snow.” The U.S. is already
enduring more intense rain and
snowstorms, says the group:
“The amount of rain or snow
falling in the heaviest one per-
cent of storms has risen nearly
20 percent, averaged national-
ly—almost three times the rate
of increase in total precipitation
between 1958 and 2007.” And
some regions of the country
“have seen as much as a 67 per-
cent increase in the amount of
rain or snow falling in the heav-
iest storms.”
And Oskin points out that while
we may be bundling up and
shoveling out in the U.S., it’s
turned into another scorcher of
a summer in the Southern
Hemisphere: 2013 was
Australia’s hottest year on
record, and 2014 has started off
even hotter, with temperatures
soaring to 125°F and severe fire
warnings issued in at least two
states there. Apparently global
warming is still on.

A computer is a complicated
machine besides making sure
your computer hardware is oper-
ating properly such as the floppy,
CD and hard drives we must
make sure that the operating sys-
tems and programs are operating
correctly. Having a preventive
maintenance schedule will keep
your computer operating proper-
ly.
Many problems with a computer
can be linked to the operating
system not up to date with the
current patches and fixes. Make
sure your operating system is up
to date, Microsoft Windows you
should run Windows update on a
regular basis, Microsoft releases
updates on the second Tuesday of
each month. To update Microsoft
Windows you must have an inter-
net connection. Start your
Internet Explorer than open
Tools/Windows Update.
Download and install all updates
for your system, I recommend
doing a Custom Install and install
both recommended and hardware
updates along with priority
updates. Mac computers run
update and it will install the latest
patches for your system.
Keep your system clean from
viruses and spyware. Make sure
your antivirus and antispyware
programs are up to date with the
current patches. I recommend
checking for updates at least once
a week and run a system scan
every two weeks. I also recom-
mend having more than one anti-
spyware program what one pro-
gram cannot find another will.
The programs I recommend are
Microsoft Defender you can get
that at; www.microsoft.com/ath-
ome/security/spyware/software,
Adaware www.lavasoft.com ,
Spybot Search&Destroy
www.safer-networking.org and
AVG Antispyware
www.grisoft.com all these pro-
grams are free. You must run
only one antvirus program on
your computer. Having more
than one antivirus program run-
ning will slow your computer
down and will cause system
problems.
To speed up Microsoft Windows
startup turn off unneeded pro-
grams from starting. To do this
go to Start/Run and type in
msconfig next click on the start-
up tab. There you will find a list
of programs that will start when
the operating system starts. I rec-
ommend remove the check mark
next to any item you do not want
to start when you turn your com-
puter on, some people use Yahoo
Messenger if you do not want
that program to start with your
computer than uncheck the box
next to the program name, than
click on apply to make the
change. If a program does not
operate correctly after you do
these changes than reopen
msconfig and turn the program
back on by checking the box
again. If you are not sure about
programs to turn off do not
uncheck it, it may be a driver for
a printer, camera or scanner to
work properly.
When you go on the internet,
Internet Explores caches every
web page that is displayed to
your computer storing them as a
file. This allows your computer
to display the web page faster if it
is already downloaded to your
computer if your browser cache
is full it will slow down your
internet browsing experience.
Clean out temporary internet
files by right click on Internet
Explorer with your mouse than
left click on properties. You will
see the General page, click on the
button that says Delete tempo-
rary files, also delete all off line
content. You can also clean out
your internet browsing history on
that page.
Keep your hard drive clean; unin-
stall any program you no longer
need make sure that you use
Add\Remove Programs in the
Control Panel to uninstall pro-
grams. Clean up temporary files
on your computer by going to
Start\All Programs\
Accessories\System Tools\Disk
Cleanup utility to safely remove
temporary and other redundant
files.
Make sure you backup your data
files and pictures to a CD or pur-
chase a USB Drive to back up
your files to on a regular basis.
Remember disaster can strike at
any time, I cannot stress backup,
backup.
By defragmenting your computer
hard drive you can speed up your
computer. When you install a
program or file on your comput-
er, the operating system installs
that program or file on your hard
drive where ever there is a blank
space available. When you run
the defragmenter it brings the
pieces of that program or file
together within the same sector
of the hard drive and rewrites the
master boot record of the drive so
when you wish to start that pro-
gram or open the file the hard
drive can locate it more quickly
and efficiently. You ca run the
utility by going to Start\All
Programs\Accessories\System
Tools\Disk Defragmenter.
I hope these suggestions will help
in keeping your system main-
tained. Please e-mail me at
paigecs@gmail.com or call 603-
747-2201, if there is a question
you want me to answer here.
