The New Hampshire
Archeological Society, in part-
nership with the New
Hampshire Division of
Historical Resources and the
New Hampshire Department of
Transportation, has announced
its listing of events taking place
during April’s New Hampshire
Archeology Month 2014.
This year’s theme, “Brush up
on Archeology,” brings a focus
on archaeology education,
including the many disciplines
involved in being an archaeolo-
gist and the wide variety of cul-
tures and time periods archaeol-
ogists study.
“Despite what’s portrayed in
Indiana Jones movies, archaeol-
ogy isn’t adrenaline-fueled
treasure hunting. It’s a scientif-
ic field that relies on anthropol-
ogy, botany, chemistry, geogra-
phy, geology, history, linguis-
tics, physics, zoology and
more,” said Dr. Richard
Boisvert, N.H. state archaeolo-
gist.
“Uncovering artifacts is only
part of archaeology. The real
find is discovering more about
how people lived their lives,
whether in the past century or a
hundred thousand years ago,”
said Boisvert.
Throughout April, professional
archaeologists will give presen-
tations across the state, address-
ing such diverse topics as
Shaker archaeology, the history
of the Crown Point Road, the
origins of Mayan ideology, how
new archaeology is changing
old history, and Paleo-Indian
culture in New Hampshire.
Additional events include a
museum exhibit about
Manchester’s mills, behind the
scenes tours at Strawbery
Banke and a demonstration dig
outside of the Division of
Historical Resources office
building in Concord, which was
originally part of the Margaret
Pillsbury Hospital complex.
New Hampshire Archeology
Month 2014 is sponsored by the
New Hampshire Archeological
Society, the New Hampshire
Division of Historical
Resources, the New Hampshire
Department of Transportation,
Hunter Research, Independent
Archaeological Consulting,
Landmark Archaeology,
Monadnock Archaeological
Consulting, Mt. Kearsarge
Indian Museum and Strawbery
Banke Museum.
A complete listing of New
Hampshire Archeology Month
events is available at
nhas.org/archmth.html.
New Hampshire’s Division of
Historical Resources, the “State
Historic Preservation Office,”
was established in 1974. The
historical, archaeological,
architectural and cultural
resources of New Hampshire
are among its most important
environmental assets. Historic
preservation promotes the use,
understanding and conservation
of such resources for the educa-
tion, inspiration, pleasure and
enrichment of New
Hampshire’s citizens. For more

www.nh.gov/nhdhr or call 603-

“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.”
A Texas town was so desperate to
do away with a scheduled per-
formance by Ted Nugent that it
actually paid him $16,250 not to
appear. The city of Longview
was considering the outspoken
rocker to headline its
Independence Day celebration,
but changed its mind after that
incident in which Nugent called
President Obama a “subhuman
mongrel,” [UPI] Hmmm, maybe
there are limits to Free Speech.
(Or maybe I can get people to
pay me not to appear! Hmmm....)
Why I call alcohol Liquid Stupid
Pills.... An intoxicated Indiana
man found passed out in the dri-
ver’s seat of his car was in his
underwear, had on one sock, and
was wearing his pants like a shirt,
cops report. Bryan Hill, 24, was
behind the wheel of a 2013
Honda when police found the
vehicle blocking traffic. As
detailed by a cop, Hill was
“wearing only a t-shirt, under-
wear and one sock.” The officer
added that Hill “did have pants
on, but they were on his arms.
Both arms were inserted into the
legs of his jeans.” [I lost the
source for this one]
A recent opinion piece on CNN
tried to build the case for lower-
ing the drinking age to 19! I
mean, everybody’s doing it any-
how so why not lower the age?
My suggestion? Based on what I
see regularly, I’d say raise it to
25.
A Colorado girl who shaved
her head to support a friend who
went bald because of cancer
treatment has been told she vio-
lated her school’s dress code (No
Shaved Heads). Kamryn Renfro
of Grand Junction shaved her
head to help Delaney Clements
get through chemotherapy.
Kamryn at first wasn’t allowed to
return to classes at Caprock
Academy. The academy later
said she could return after the
school’s board of directors
reversed their decision following
a social media campaign. The
(Grand Junction) Daily Sentinel
reported that the school board’s
chairwoman says the school’s the
dress code is designed to promote
uniformity and a non-distracting
environment. She said exceptions
can be made under extraordinary
circumstances.
A few cat facts I found online: (1)
The technical term for “hairball”
is “bezoar.” (2) Cats have 1,000
times more data storage than
an iPad. (3) A cat’s nose
is ridged with a unique pattern,
just like a human fingerprint. (4)
Cat owners who are male tend to
be luckier in love, as they are per-
ceived as more sensitive. (5) A
cat has been mayor of Talkeetna,
Alaska, for 15 years. His name
is Stubbs.
One of the neat things about
YouTube is its related recom-
mendations (sometimes). The
other day, I looked up a song
called “Sailor” by Lolita. Down
the side were links to other ver-
sions of the song, “The Last
Farewell” by Roger Whittaker,
“Sink the Bismarck” by Johnny
Horton, “I’ll Never Find Another
You” from The Seekers, and
“Corinna, Corinna” from Ray
Peterson (also well-known for
“Tell Laura I Love Her”). No
wonder I sometimes get lost for
hours online.
I mentioned in the last column
that I was starting to clean out my
man cave. It’s tough to get rid of
stuff, though. For example, I
asked my wife if I needed to save
check registers from 1991 –
1997. She told me I didn’t.
Perhaps the issue will be resolved
by the time this sees print (but I
doubt it). I don’t know if anyone
else noticed this, but in the search
for Flight 370, every new
‘update’ (so far there has been
nothing new to update) contains a
new place to be searched with a
name reference to the size –
today, New Mexico- previously,
Malaysia, Australia, Poland,
Alaska, Victoria, Ireland, Texas
and Oklahoma, and “a good
chunk of North America” (I am
sure I missed a few). (As an
aside, wouldn’t you think there is
a better way to track missing air-
craft? [Or is there but no one
wants to spend the money].)
With all of those ‘People of
Walmart’ pictures online, I have
to be honest – I have yet to see
anyone local close to what’s por-
trayed. (Of course, maybe I don’t
go at the right time... just sayin’.
I mean, I suspect the potential is
there....)
Albert Einstein said, “Look deep
into nature, and then you will
understand everything better.” It
is with that thought in mind that I
offer the exciting Berman’s Bits
Tom Sawyer Nature Camp!
Here’s how it works: you show
up and are provided with a “rake”
and muck cart, and you spend
two hours “picking the pasture!”
There are no cell phones or other
distractions, so you have time to
think and commune with nature
as you go about your business. It
is so much fun – just you and
your thoughts. Who knows
where your thoughts will take
you. Maybe you will plant a seed
for the next Great American
Novel or discover a cure for a
horrible disease out there. As
Mark Twain said, “... in order to
make a man or a boy covet a
thing, it is only necessary to
make the thing difficult to
attain.” With that in mind, many
will apply, but only a few will be
selected. Ready? Go!
Later.

We found happiness this past
weekend on the way to a piece
of rock 3,251 feet above the
sea. It was the weekend and all
was warm (well, warm for what
we’ve had around here through-
out the long, cold winter) and
the blue sky was lit by a bright
sun. Atticus and I needed to get
out into the woods and up on
top of something so we left our
home in Jackson and drove
north through Pinkham Notch.
We had a few trails in mind that
would take us to destinations
meant to restore and center us,
and we kept going until we
pulled into Randolph where we
finally found a place with no
cars.
There are rarely cars at the tiny
lot (if it can be called a lot) for
the Mount Crescent Trail. We
walked through the open
woods, were greeted by sun-
light slanting in between trees
and highlighting the dangling
moss endearingly referred to as
“Old Man’s Beard”, and felt the
snow start to get sloppy under
my snowshoes. It was still firm
enough for Atticus to walk on
top of and it made for a nice
morning.
We were about a quarter of the
way up the trail when we ran
into the back end of a moose
who was exiting stage right and
we watched him move heavily
through the snow, post-holing
as he went. At one point he
stopped and looked back at us
over his shoulder but thought
little of the man and dog behind
him so he continued to mosey
along.
We are still in that stage where
we are both losing weight and
getting back into shape after
missing close to a year of seri-
ous hiking with Atticus’s cancer
and subsequent surgery and
chemotherapy treatments. That
means we stopped quite a bit on
our way up the mountain. I was
only wearing a t-shirt but there
were times when even that
seemed too heavy, even as we
passed through the shady forest.
Just over a mile up the trail we
came to a fork and went to the
right. Both trails come together
at the summit to form a loop so
it didn’t matter which way we
went. There is no view to the
south and the imposing
Northern Presidential Range,
but there is a fine back porch
view out to the Kilkenny
Range, totally unique. It has
you feeling like you’ve discov-
ered a whole new world as you
stand by that little opening and
look north.
The network of trails through
the Crescent Range is exten-
sive. It looks like spider web
that’s been stretched by time
and wind and the Randolph
Mountain Club does a fine job
of keeping up with trail mainte-
nance and it is difficult to get
lost due to the accurate signage.
In spite of that, it still feels wild
and there are days on this range
you have a better chance of a
moose encounter than seeing
another hiker. That’s the beau-
ty of it. And this is exactly why
we ended up there.
Earlier in the week Atticus and
I were invited down to
Norwood, Massachusetts to talk
about our book, Following
Atticus, which is this year’s
community read. Six hundred
people showed up, in spite of
bullying forecasts. Although
the crowd was enthusiastic and
fun to interact with, there is no
place like home. And there’s no
cure for dipping down into the
business of driving along Route
95 and Route 495 in
Massachusetts better than get-
ting lost on a quiet mountain
path.
Washington, Moosilauke,
Lafayette – these peaks will
always be popular destinations,
but as the years pass I find that
where I am renewed is on the
smaller peaks in the less trav-
eled trails.
Thankfully for all us who love
to hike, New Hampshire and
the White Mountains have a
multitude of them.

in individual containers. Use them throughout the week and you won't
have to spend money on take-out meals!

Hello friends of nature and wel-
come to this week’s edition of
Nature Tracks...
TAKE DOWN
BIRDFEEDERS
DON'T GET CAUGHT
BY SURPRISE!
While it may look more like win-
ter rather than April across areas
of the New Hampshire land-
scape, don’t be fooled. Spring is
here. The sun is strong and snow
will soonbe gone. As the days
become warmer, bears will start
to get active and it is time to put
the birdfeeders away until late
fall. Some homeowners have
already reported seeing bears at
birdfeeders in different areas
across the state. To help prevent
bear visits, the New Hampshire
Fish and Game Department rec-
ommends taking down birdfeed-
ers from April 1 to December 1.
The Fish and Game Department
urges the New Hampshire public
to be proactive and take action
now to prevent attracting a bear
to their home. Do not wait for a
bear to get the birdfeeder and
then respond. Doing so encour-
ages foraging behavior by bears
near residences. A single food
reward will cause the bear to
return and continue to search the
area for food.
While bear/human conflicts dur-
ing 2013 (527 complaints) were
below the long-term average
(695 per year), 2012 was a chal-
lenging year resulting in a record
total of over 1,100 statewide
complaints, according to Fish
and Game Bear Biologist
Andrew Timmins. Nearly 10% of
the bear complaints during 2012
involved bears at bird feeders.
Additionally, another 40% of the
complaints were the direct result
of bears raiding unsecured
garbage at homes and businesses.
“These two common food attrac-
tants accounted for half of the
total bear-human conflicts in that
year and could have been easily
avoided by removing or securing
common food attractants around
the yard,” said Timmins.
“The rate of bear/human con-
flicts that will occur this spring
and summer is unknown and dif-
ficult to predict. Bears went to
den in good shape due to general-
ly abundant foods (i.e., beech-
nuts, apples, mountain ash
berries, and choke cherries) last
fall. However, it has been a long
denning season and bears have
depleted considerable body fat,”
said Timmins. “When bears
emerge, they will be hungry and
food will be limited until spring
green-up occurs. We are hoping
homeowners will be vigilant and
remove/secure attractants so as
not to entice bears and create nui-
sance behavior.”
Black oil sunflower seeds are
simply too high a quality of food
(high in fat and protein) for bears
to ignore. Natural bear foods dur-
ing spring and summer are gener-
ally high in carbohydrates and
low in protein and fat. As a result,
birdseed is high on the menu! If
bears have previously acquired
sunflower seeds at your home,
they will be back looking for
more. The best way to prevent
attracting bears is to remove bird-
feeders until December 1 and
secure other household food
attractants.
Homeowners should take action
to reduce the chances of a bear
visiting their home. Avoid
encounters with bears by taking a
few simple precautions:
* Stop all bird feeding by April 1.
* Clean up any spilled birdseed
and dispose of it in the trash.
* Secure all garbage in airtight
containers inside a garage or ade-
quate storage area, and put
garbage out on the morning of
pickup, not the night before. If
using a dumpster, inform your
dumpster company that you need
a dumpster with metal locking
tops and doors that are inaccessi-
ble to bears and other wildlife.
* Avoid putting meat or other
food scraps in your compost pile.
* Don't leave pet food dishes out-
side overnight.
* Clean and store outdoor grills
after each use.
* Finally, never feed bears!

venting conflicts with black

related problems, you can get

Hello Northcountry news folk!
Another quick two weeks has
passed us by and it actually
seems as though the weather is
heading in a warmer direction
than the last time.
This week I thought I'd bring
back some memories. As time
goes by, many things change.
Some for the good, other things,
not so good. But in the modern
era, we have lost some fantastic
stores over the past two
decades. I remember many, if
not all of them. In fact, I could
probably walk around my home
and find several items from a
number of the paces I am going
to mention!
Here we go, a walk down mem-
ory lane. These places no
longer exist! See how many of
these places you remember.
How about we start with Kids R
Us! That store actually closed
down and folded into the Toys R
Us stores, which were already
opened.
Lechmere was another store
that lasted until 1997. They sold
a variety of items, including a
very large electronics depart-
ment.
Jordan Marsh actually turned
in to several Macy's stores in
1996 and in 2006 a majority of
Filenes stores also were turned
in to Macy's.
Circuit City was another elec-
tronics store that went by the
wayside not so long ago. Do
you remember names such as
Comp USA, Coconuts and
Tweeter, Etc.? All those no
longer exist but were certainly
busy during their early times.
K.B. Toys is another that has
closed and Linens and Things
are an online business only at
this point.
Blockbuster Video was another
enterprise that stayed to the bit-
ter end, but with the likes of
Netflix and online streaming,
seemingly lost in the end.
Walden Books and more recent-
ly Borders Books both have
gone by the wayside. In their
day, these book stores were un-
stoppable. But again, technolo-
gy of the likes of Kindle and
online downloading and order-
ing of your favorite books put
these guys out in the end!
I am sure most remember Zayre
and Bradlees Department
stores and even more locally,
Ames Department Stores. All
victims of larger box stores
such as WalMart and with the
likes of online ordering from
places like Amazon, Zappos
and Overstock... well, they just
couldn't compete.
There are plenty of other busi-
nesses both nationally and
locally which have closed over
the past 10-20 years. Many, just
in the past 5 to 7 years. I bet I
jogged a few people's memories
who are reading this week’s col-
umn!
It's not a bad thing to take a
look back at the past once in a
while. After all, some of those
memories are pretty darn good!
Many of the stores I mentioned
above were great places to go.
It's a shame to see some of these
great names go by the wayside.
Personally, I'd like to have a
few of them back to give people
more options of where they
want to shop. But, I guess it's
just a sign of the times.
Onward to the future... whatev-
er that may hold!
Nobody Asked, Just My
Opinion...
~BEF
I am writing today to get the
message out about the
Department of Veteran's Affairs
Management Accountability
Act of 2014. I support this bill
as well as the principles upon
which it is based. I believe our
veterans deserve much better
from the VA. The leadership at
the VA must be held account-
able for their poor perform-
ance. Recent news reports
exposing the mismanagement at
the VA, is literally costing the
lives of our veterans, yet no one
is held accountable or fired for
their gross mismanagement and
incompetence. This is unac-
ceptable!
I would urge citizens to call or
write their Senators and
Representatives and ask them to
support this very important leg-
islation. Our veterans need to
be treated with the care and
respect they earned and
deserve. Our country owes
them that at the very least.
I am a civilian volunteer with
the Concerned Veterans for
America. I have joined with
them in this effort because we
must hold the VA accountable
to uphold the promises America
made to our veterans. Our
nations heroes deserve the very
best, but they are not getting it.
It's not about money; it's about
being held accountable for mis-
management and better overall
performance. The men and
women of our military have
risked their lives for our free-
dom, they deserve much better.

North Country Happenings...
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 April.
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 April.
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!

Linked With Other Serious Health Issues!

Inspiring Words for You!
Dear Friends, Spring is coming, so be
encouraged. The Bible tells us, For God so
loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not
perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send
His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the
world might be saved through Him John 3:16-17. John
17:3, Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the
only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
John 17:23, I in them and you in me--so that they may
be brought to complete unity. Then the world will
know that you sent me and have loved them even as
you have loved me. The Bible is a living Word!
2Tim.3:16-17, All Scripture is God-breathed and is
useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in
righteousness, so that the servant of God may be
thoroughly equipped for every good work. Read the
Bible, it's great for the soul! God bless you all.

April Is New Hampshire Archeology Month_________________
‘Brush up on Archeology’ this
April in NH
The New Hampshire
Archeological Society, in part-
nership with the New
Hampshire Division of
Historical Resources and the
New Hampshire Department of
Transportation, has announced
its listing of events taking place
during April’s New Hampshire
Archeology Month 2014.
This year’s theme, “Brush up
on Archeology,” brings a focus
on archaeology education,
including the many disciplines
involved in being an archaeolo-
gist and the wide variety of cul-
tures and time periods archaeol-
ogists study.
“Despite what’s portrayed in
Indiana Jones movies, archaeol-
ogy isn’t adrenaline-fueled
treasure hunting. It’s a scientif-
ic field that relies on anthropol-
ogy, botany, chemistry, geogra-
phy, geology, history, linguis-
tics, physics, zoology and
more,” said Dr. Richard
Boisvert, N.H. state archaeolo-
gist.
“Uncovering artifacts is only
part of archaeology. The real
find is discovering more about
how people lived their lives,
whether in the past century or a
hundred thousand years ago,”
said Boisvert.
Throughout April, professional
archaeologists will give presen-
tations across the state, address-
ing such diverse topics as
Shaker archaeology, the history
of the Crown Point Road, the
origins of Mayan ideology, how
new archaeology is changing
old history, and Paleo-Indian
culture in New Hampshire.
Additional events include a
museum exhibit about
Manchester’s mills, behind the
scenes tours at Strawbery
Banke and a demonstration dig
outside of the Division of
Historical Resources office
building in Concord, which was
originally part of the Margaret
Pillsbury Hospital complex.
New Hampshire Archeology
Month 2014 is sponsored by the
New Hampshire Archeological
Society, the New Hampshire
Division of Historical
Resources, the New Hampshire
Department of Transportation,
Hunter Research, Independent
Archaeological Consulting,
Landmark Archaeology,
Monadnock Archaeological
Consulting, Mt. Kearsarge
Indian Museum and Strawbery
Banke Museum.
A complete listing of New
Hampshire Archeology Month
events is available at
nhas.org/archmth.html.
New Hampshire’s Division of
Historical Resources, the “State
Historic Preservation Office,”
was established in 1974. The
historical, archaeological,
architectural and cultural
resources of New Hampshire
are among its most important
environmental assets. Historic
preservation promotes the use,
understanding and conservation
of such resources for the educa-
tion, inspiration, pleasure and
enrichment of New
Hampshire’s citizens. For more
information, visit
www.nh.gov/nhdhr or call 603-
271-3483.

URO To Invade North Haverhill Fair This Year______________________________________________________
Warren After School Program Visits Sweet Drop Sugarhouse
On Friday, March 21st, the Warren Village School After School Program students took a field trip to visit Lloyd and Laurie Bixby’s Sweet Drop Sugarhouse in
Warren, NH. The Bixby family graciously hosted the K-6 students to teach the youngsters about the maple sugaring process and show them their beautiful, hand-
built sugarhouse as well as their tanks, evaporator, and Reverse Osmosis machine. Though the sap wasn’t yet running because of the cold weather, the students
thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Laurie Bixby and Barbara Bixby treated the students to maple syrup and Barbara’s delicious homemade donuts. Lloyd,
Laurie, and John Green helped the students make sugar on snow and practice tapping trees and hanging buckets. Thank-you Lloyd, Laurie, Barbara, and John
for sharing your time and talents with our students and for helping them develop a closer connection to our NH forests and our community.

There have been many sounds
over the years coming from the
Thayer Stage at the North
Haverhill Fair. The stage has
hosted many local bands and
talented singers competing in
North Haverhill Idol. There has
been Guitar Hero winners and
even game show participants.
But to celebrate the 70th annual
North Haverhill Fair, the stage
will, this year, be invaded by
URO.
To quote their website “The
Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra is a
giant 10-vocalist rock band that
performs thunderous, fist-in-
the-air renditions of classic 70’s
Brit Rock.” Have you ever seen
“Strawberry Fields Forever”
performed live, and still sound
like the album? How about
Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody?
Or Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to
Heaven.” To call URO a tribute
band would be a mistake. They
do so much more than just trib-
ute. They take many of the
British invasion 70’s groups
and music and reproduce them
live, and with plenty of life.
URO will be the cap to the 70’s
tribute day on Saturday, July 26
at the 70th annual North
Haverhill Fair. The concert will
start at 8:00 PM. Seating will
be, as in the past, on a first
come, first serve basis, except
for a few reserved seats for
sponsors and volunteers. Plus
there is still no extra charge to
be a witness to this perform-
ance.
Elsewhere on the fairgrounds
on Saturday will be the tradi-
tional farm and enhanced trac-
tor pull. The Woodsmen’s
Contest will once again be in
the Dellinger Ring showcasing
some great athletes and some
high powered chain saws,
crosscut saws and even axes.
For the younger crowd on
Saturday there will be the
Kiddie Parade and the Kids
Tractor Pull. In both events all
participants are winners.
The 2014 fair will also feature
Demolition Derbies on
Wednesday and Friday nights.
The annual Car Show on
Wednesday and the big 4x4
pulling event on Sunday also
return to the fair.
Other events and plans are still
being worked on for this year’s
fair and will be announced as
they are firmed up. Admission
prices for this year will still get
you into all of those events and
shows. Admission price is $12
per person after you park for
free. Children 12 and younger
are also free, though they will
receive an entrance ticket. And
Seniors will pay just $5.00 on
Thursday for a full day’s admis-
sion. Bracelet days for the
Fiesta Shows thrill rides will
still be held on Wednesday,
Thursday and Sunday. Prices
will be announced later.

or directions to the 70th Annual
North Haverhill Fair visit the

Snow, COPD, and the
Benefits of Exercise
I was surprised to hear a college
student say, “I don’t mind the
cold but I don’t like snow!”
Having been born in a giant
snowstorm that tied up Boston
for several days, snow has the
opposite effect on me. Snow
makes me feel safe and protect-
ed, gives me a sense of wonder.
As kids, we spent every daylight
hour we weren’t in school out-
side building forts, igloos, sled-
ding, or just eating the snow and
checking our mittens for unusual
formations of snowflakes.
Snow continues to be an impor-
tant part of winter for me. Having
joined the ranks of those with
COPD (Chronic Obstructive
Lung Disease), getting out in the
snow and pumping up my lungs
as much as possible tops the list
of healthy exercises. The only
difference now is that I have to
be sure I intentionally exhale
fully. If I make my exhalation
twice as long as my inhalation, I
squeeze my lungs out like a
sponge ready to take in a big new
breath. With COPD, when people
continually take short breaths,
their lungs get more sluggish
than ever and the last thing we
want is rigid, stuck, air bags.
So here’s food for thought if you
or a friend are dealing with
COPD. The 2:1 breath can be
practiced whether sitting in a
chair, walking up stairs, running,
hiking or just about any activity.
You can simply count the time it
takes to fully exhale and then
inhale to half that amount of time
or you can count your paces.
Here in New Hampshire, we
have a beautiful natural environ-
ment with a variety of free, built
in attributes for exercise. Most of
us live on or next to some sort of
hill. Since we’ve been inundated
with snow this year, woods trails
have all been smoothed out with
2-3 feet or more of snow. With
microspikes, most popular trails
and roadways, especially when
icy, are safely doable.
It can be a scarey shock to find
that when hiking with a group, all
of a sudden, you’re winded when
you talk while hiking uphill, or
when you can’t keep up with the
group. As Sam Levenson would
say, “So don’t talk on the uphill.”
You’re probably not the only one
gasping for breath. If necessary,
find a group that hikes at a more
comfortable pace but keep on
hiking! Use ‘em or lose ‘em
applies to lungs as well as to
muscles.
It helps to find a friend or friends
to exercise with both for incen-
tive and companionship. One of
the ways we can keep each other
well is to get out and enjoy this
snow while it lasts. This week,
the group I hiked with did the
Sugarloafs off the Zealand road.
It was a bit steep going up but we
had exhilarating luge runs com-
ing down. All that’s needed is a
big black trash bag wrapped
around your tush and a great
hooting “Whoo!” Ah, snow.

The Sound of Water
Change. Sometimes subtle,
sometimes bold; when it comes
to the transition from winter to
spring, certain signs are unmis-
takable. There are the gradual-
ly warming temperatures,
where thirty-five degrees feels
like t-shirt weather. There is the
slushy snow, that leave us slip-
sliding our way through the
woods - one misstep off the
packed trail and we’re in over
our knees. There is the earthy
smell of bark and buds as the
freeze gives way to thaw and
trees regain the subtle but sure
aroma of live wood.
And then there is the sound of
water. There is the drip-drip-
drip as snow melts off our low
shed roof. There is the plip-
plip-plip as rainwater collects in
buckets beside the cabin. And
best of all, the rush of water
over ice as the river awakens.
It’s hard to catch the exact
moment. Try as we might, we
never pin-point it to a precise
beginning. But at some point
we recognize the flow of water,
quiet but undeniable as it joins
the rest of our senses. With
each step outside, a new sound
defines our world. It gains
strength, force; like a breeze
blowing closer, the river pushes
it’s way towards the surface
from deep underneath the ice.
What begins as the echo of a
trickle, makes its way on top of
the ice, flowing over, under,
around.
And then it breaks free. A rush
becomes a roar; ice is thrown
asunder, trees that dare to be in
the river’s path are flung down-
stream, boulders are dislodged,
banks disregarded and
rearranged. Now, there is no
turning back. The change that
has been subtle in becoming, is
sure in arriving. With water
reaching its full power, it can-
not now be easily tamed nor
frozen again, not until the cal-
endar has turned toward the
next winter.
And so spring is here, with
freshness and with force.
Creation and destruction,
power and beauty; the water is
alive. And so the denouement
of winter tosses us right to the
strength of spring.
Spring is here! Time to prune
your fruit trees, berry bushes,
and ornamental shrubs! Time to
design your garden! Time to
purchase new nursery stock!

Thousands of “green” apps now that make it easy for people
to find and share information to help us all become better
stewards of the natural environment. Pictured: A GoodGuide
app evaluates a household product - Good Guide
OBITUARY
Dear EarthTalk: What are
some cool apps that work with a
mobile phone that can help me
get in better touch with the
environment?
-- Mitchell Brown, Troy, MI
Not surprisingly, there are thou-
sands of “green” apps out there
that make it easier for people to
find and share information to
help us all become better stew-
ards of the natural environment.
The American Lung
Association’s State of the Air
app shows live color-coded air
quality maps for any U.S. loca-
tion and includes both ozone
and particulate pollution
counts. The app also provides
air quality alerts, short-term
forecasts and opportunities to
learn more about air quality
risks and to contact lawmakers
to push for more stringent pol-
lution regulations. Another way
to find out who’s emitting what
nearby is via aMobileFuture’s
Pollution, a free app that com-
piles information from various
pollution databases around the
world and then shows users
which big polluters are emitting
what near them. Coverage
includes 1,380 cities, mostly in
Europe and the U.S.
Ethical shoppers will appreciate
the GoodGuide, a free app that
shows how any of 120,000
food, personal care and house-
hold products stack up in terms
of sustainability, fair wages and
even health risks. Users just
snap a picture of an item’s bar
code to get the low-down on
whether or not it’s a “good”
buy. And the free JouleBug app
turns living greener into a
game, taking specific sustain-
ability-oriented steps such as
reducing energy use, recycling
more or buying local and trans-
lating these small acts into pos-
itive “units of impact.”
Embedded videos demonstrate
ways once can green up daily
life.
Adair Systems’ 99 cents
GasHog app makes it easy to
track a car’s fuel efficiency.
Enter the odometer reading and
amount of fuel added each time
you refill the tank and the app
calculates the fuel economy of
the previous tank and compares
it to historical averages. The
app also offers tips for improv-
ing fuel economy. And Avego’s
free CarmaCarpooling app
matches nearby drivers with
riders to share the commute and
the expense. At the end of the
trip, the rider can send a pay-
ment through the system to the
driver to cover a share of gas
and wear-and-tear.
PaperKarma is a free app to
help reduce junk mail. Users
input their address information
once and then snap a picture
through the app of any unwant-
ed junk mail. Behind the
scenes, PaperKarma’s automat-
ed system notifies the publisher
to take the user’s name and
address off their list.
Another popular app is Light
Bulb Finder, a free app
designed to help ease the transi-
tion from older incandescent
bulbs to more energy efficient
replacements. Users enter in
their zip code—the app auto-
matically inputs average
regional electricity rates
accordingly—and then choose
which type of fixture,
size/shape and wattage bulb(s)
they are looking to replace. The
app then suggests options that
use less energy and shows how
much money the user can
expect to save with the newer
bulb(s).
It’s nice to know that the little
screens we’ve become increas-
ingly dependent upon—and
which otherwise tend to distract
us from nature and the out-
doors—can also be used for the
betterment of the environment.

Tek Talk...With Eli Heath
Of Paige Computer Services
Tech Tips, Talk & Advice For Your Computer
Most people are upgrading to a
new computer due to Microsoft
ending support on Windows XP
this week so instead of filling
the trash dump with your old
computer you can still put it to
use. Here are some suggestions;
Setup a Media Center depend-
ing on its specifications you can
move your old computer next to
your television and use it as a
media center or Digital Video
Recorder. With a decent size
hard drive you can use it to
store everything from music,
pictures and video. You will
need to install some media cen-
ter software such as Microsoft
Windows Media Center 2005,
you can only purchase this as a
OEM version from a computer
reseller. There is a free version
you can download from
www.team-mediaportal.com, it
contains all the same features as
Windows Media Center plus a
few extras. To take full advan-
tage of the media center you
will also need a TV Tuner
device such as the ATI All in
Wonder video card, a remote
comes with the card so, you
will be able to record, pause
and rewind live TV.
Create a Digital Photo Frame
today you can purchase a pic-
ture frame that will display you
digital photos. Most picture
frames will connect to a com-
puter with a USB Cable. Your
computer can store thousands
of digital photographs; with the
cable you can stream them to
your digital picture frame.
Some picture frames are wire-
less, so having a wireless card
on your computer you can
stream the pictures to any frame
in your house
MP3 Jukebox store all your
music files and connect you PC
to your stereo set, play all your
MP3’s from your computer
through your stereo set. You
will still need the media center
software, if you have wireless
in your house you can stream
your music into every room,
you will also be able to listen to
internet radio
Setup a test machine if you
purchase or download new
computer software and you
want to test it before you install
the program on your main com-
puter, than use it as a test
machine. That way if the is a
bug or flaw in the program you
can find out before you use it on
your main system. You can also
install multiple operating sys-
tem such as Linux, and BeeOS
and learn new program under
those operating systems.
Learn a new operating system
if your old computer is running
Windows 98 or Windows ME,
reload the computer with
Linux. This is a free open
source operating system that is
based on the Unix kernel. Many
older computers will work on
Linux without any modifica-
tions. Linux comes loaded with
all the applications you need to
operate your computer from e-
mail to photo editing programs,
practice with it and in time
when you are ready just use
Linux for your operating sys-
tem, it is more secure and less
likely to crash your computer
than the other operating sys-
tems. You can download Linux
at www.ubuntu.com. You will
need a high speed connection to
download the ISO disk image to
make a bootable CD, they will
also send you the Linux CD
free of charge, or if you are in
the area you can stop by my
shop and I will give you a copy
of the CD. Other sites where
you can get other versions of
this operating system are
www.debian.org also
www.mandrakelinux.com.
Make a printer file web serv-
er if you should have over two
computers in your house you
can network your old computer
to allow sharing of your printer
and internet access. There are
free programs based on the
Linux operating system that
will allow you to make a web
server from your old computer,
it is more secure and cheaper
than buying a router. The web
server will also be your hard-
ware firewall for you high
speed internet connection to the
outside world. You can down-
load free web server software at
www.vmware.com/vmware-
server. You can also store all
your files on the old computer
where anyone can access them,
just have one computer (file
server) to hold all your docu-
ments and files.
Make a Network Storage
Backup Device (NAS) If you
have a home network and you
want to store all your music
files, documents or other files
that can be accessed on your
home network then make your
old computer into a network
storage device. Some network
(NAS) storage devices cost
hundreds of dollars but with a
little time you can make one for
free. You can download a free
program called Freenas from
www.freenas.org. After down-
loading the cd image burn the
image to cd using your cd burn-
ing software, boot from the cd
on your old computer follow
the instructions (download
instructions from website), con-
nect your old computer to your
network tweak the settings and
soon you will be up and run-
ning.
Donate your old computer
contact your local school or
senior center. There may be a
child or senior that cannot
afford a computer. This will
help the environment plus you
may write it off your taxes as a
charitable donation, just make
sure you get a receipt from the
organization that you donate it
to. If you should by a computer
from a manufacture such as
Dell they will recycle your old
computer and donate to a chari-
table organization. There are
also recycling centers that may
give you cash for your old com-
puter and some you have to pay
a fee to recycle your old com-
puter, one locally is www.win-
cycle.org they are located in
Windsor, VT.
Sell it for parts you can adver-
tise in the local classifieds or on
e-bay. There could be someone
who has a computer like yours
that just needs the parts to
repair a computer, or someone
who is looking for a low cost
computer. You can go to your
local computer store to see if
they will sell it for you, here a
Paige Computer we offer that
service.
Make sure all your personal
information is removed from
the computer when you dis-
pose of it.
I recommend a free program
called Darik’s Boot & Nuke
you can get it at
http://.dban.sourceforge.net.
This program boots from a CD
or 3.5” disk or thumb drive and
will over write your computers
hard drive. This will wipe out
any data on the drive. .
So I hope this information is
helpful. Be sure to visit us on
the internet at www.paigecom-
puterservices.com. You may
call at 603-747-2201 or e-mail
at paigecs@gmail.com. So until
next time Happy Computing.
