A very rare Northern Hawk Owl. This is a bird from Northern Canada that spent part of this winter in the Lakes Region! The Northern Hawk Owl is also known as the Canadian Owl and Hudsonian Hawk Owl. Their feathers are stiff, unlike those of nocturnal owl species. This means their flight is not completely silent. They have little fear of humans, and will attack if their young are approached too closely! A wonderful, yet rare bird to see in our region. - Duane Cross Photo (www.duanecrosspics.com)

The NH Fish &Game has announced that on February 25, 2013, Brian Huckins Jr., age 22, of Warren, N.H., was convicted in the Grafton County Superior Court of Aggravated Driving Under the Influence and Reckless Conduct of an OHRV.

Your picture could become our next Picture Of The Week! In a moment of pure candor, a local businessman once told me, Its all about the money. For many (most?), thats true, and therein lays the problem. Because of that, doing the right thing has fallen by the wayside. If people just did the right thing, what a wonderful world it would be. Of course, the problem is what is the right thing? Too many gray areas for too many people.... Finally, connected with the last Bit, shop around! CVS charges $150 for a monthly prescription of the generic version of the cholesterol drug Lipitor. The same drug goes for $17 at Costco. Thats according to a recent Consumer Reports nationwide survey that sent secret shoppers to 200 pharmacies that carry five blockbuster drugs: Lipitor, Lexapro, Plavix, Actos and Singulair, all of which lost their patents in the last two years. Shoppers found they could be paying as much as $749, or 447%, more for a generic prescription drug in one year at the highest-priced pharmacy, compared with the lowest. [CNNMoney] Shop around!

Do you want to learn more about community gardening? How to get started? Who to work with? What are the benefits to a community?

New Community Garden Resource Guide Available_________________________

UNH Cooperative Extension and the Master Gardeners Program collaborated to bring to you this new online guide. Written by New Hampshire master gardeners Yvonne Beran, Tina Burr and Nancy Friese, and Extension Program Team Leader Charlie French, it not only addresses questions about starting and maintaining a community garden, it also shares five success stories of community gardens in New Hampshire. The guide provides information on the types of community gardens, how to organize them and a variety of additional resources to help you get started. Lorraine Merrill, commissioner of New Hampshires Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food, who wrote the foreword for the publication, says, "Community and other civic gardening projects bring people together across generations to cultivate plants, food, beauty, knowledge and relationships. Creating opportunities for children and young people to connect with and learn from elder generations builds true community. What is a community garden? According to the American Community Garden Association, a community garden is any piece of land gardened by a group of people. It can be urban, suburban or rural. You can grow flowers, vegetables or community. It can be one community plot, or many individual plots. You can locate a community garden at a school, hospital or in your neighborhood. There has been a marked increase in community gardening in New Hampshire that coincides with local food movements. In the past five years, more than 29 new community gardens have sprouted across the state, and the total number now surpasses 75 gardens. www.extension.unh.edu

A new publication, Community Gardening in New Hampshire: From the Ground Up, answers these questions and more. The guide is free and online at http://bit.ly/ZpKpWi New online guide

tle dog was angry and flashed out with his teeth whenever he could. Sometimes he did it, Im sure, not out of anger, but also because he was in pain. To add insult to injury he was hungry, had been crated for so long he paced in circles and didnt understand freedom, thought little of stepping in his own feces and often his hips were so weak hed fall in his urine and didnt have the strength to get up. He just lay there suffering in his own waste. Who would want such a dog? turned to July and by this time Will started to get a little stronger. He ate well, slept plenty, and learned to trust my touch. Still there were flashes of rage and I had to be careful how I handled him so he wouldnt turn on me. But by the time September rolled around Will surprised us by making it to the autumn and he even appeared to be getting younger. When October arrived we reached my original goal, which had seem absurd that first day. Will made it to the top of Pine Mountain with the help of a wheeled cart, not unlike a childs stroller. We pushed him up the dirt road, up part of the rocky and root-crossed trail, and even carried it in places. It was a grueling day and you can ask why we did it if this little dog was so far gone, even with the advances hed made? The answer was an easy one for me. I believe in the magic we find here in the White Mountains. I believe the mountains are special and that they are here for anyoneeven a little deaf, arthritic, and mostly blind dog with trust issues. There were dog experts who questioned my sanity and felt what we were doing was cruel but we did our best to ignore them. And because of that a funny thing happened that day. When I held Will in my arms while Atticus was by my side on that flat summit, that once-angry little dog who couldnt see much of the view reached out and did something hed never done to me. He licked my cheek. A simple kiss. He then lowered his head against mine and looked out with his cloudy eyes. And there we stood, just as Atticus and I have stood thousands of times. I wont pretend to know how much he could see and I dont imagine he could hear any of the bird song or the way the wind sang in the autumn leaves. But something changed that day. Will, who was mending a bit, became even younger. He grew closer to us and more appreciative. For the first time he started

But as I as sit here writing this Im thinking instead of a hike thats yet to come.

His prospects for another chance were grim. When all was darkest, all hope had to seem lost, someone at the shelter with a big heart reached out to the New Jersey Schnauzer Rescue and let them know of this old dog and his looming demise.

On March 21st and 22nd , the Warren Village Schools Technology Student Association (TSA) team competed for the first time at the NH-TSA state conference at the Beacon Resort in Lincoln, NH. Led by TSA teacher Julie Panus, seven WVS 5th and 6th graders attended the 2-day conference and competed in several categories including: Dragster Design, Prepared Speech, Challenging Technology Issues, Structural Challenge, Flight Challenge, and Problem Solving. Three team members placed in events at the competition. Ben P. won a 2nd place trophy for his Prepared Speech. The team of Dakota B. and Ben P. also won a 2nd place trophy in Challenging Technology Issues. And the touching tribute to a friend that passed away lead into his cover of No Expectations by the Rolling Stones as he is compelled to play a train song after that number. Can't Complain and Conservative Christian we among a host of other Todd favorites that had the audience singing along. All in all, an epic evening that will not soon be forgotten.

In the intimate setting of the Smith Recital hall in the Silver Center at Plymouth State University, Legendary singer songwriter Todd Snider brought his own unique brand of Americana music to the stage. And as a big Todd Snider fan my high expectations were thoroughly exceeded. This magic night started with guest performer Amy Cook, an Austin based singer songwriter. Presenting an eclectic mix of tomboy toughness and elegant class, Amy worked the frets of her 75 Guild acoustic with a subtle combination of rock and roll power chords and intricate finger picking. Playing many songs from her latest record Summer Skin such as Getting to You, the sold out crowd embraced her right from the first notes as one audience member yelled out Welcome to New Hampshire. Given a choice between a Bob Dylan or Blondie song to end her set, this gathering of music lovers insisted on hearing both. I am sure we will be hearing more from Amy in the future, check out her website at www.amycook.com And then there was Todd. It seems so easy to compare Todd to other icons of the music world such as Jerry Jeff Walker, John Prine and Kriss Krisstofferson, all of who he has played with, but once one experiences a Todd Snider show it is obvious that he is like no other. The man just seems to overflow with charm and sincerity as he rambles on with stories laced with sarcasm and humor. Walking on stage flashing peace signs and sporting a mile wide grin, Todd jumped into a deep blues mode hammering away at the lower register of his Ibanez guitar, and then the conversation started. The spontaneity of his chatter made us all feel as though we were all just sitting around the kitchen table. Informing us all that he had no real set list tonight, he welcomed requests from the crowd jumping into the song while the last syllable of the request was still hanging in the air. But if that wasn't enough, he also encouraged folks to write lights of the evening as he told a few stories about one of his biggest hits Beer Run (B double E double R U N) He said he was constantly asked if he ever gets sick playing this song to which he replied that if he plays a song and you want to hear it again is the reason he loves his job.

Warren Village Schools TSA Team__________________________

Cherry picking through his extensive repertoire, we were treated to such favorites as Sunshine a twisted ballad about an attempted suicide that only Todd can pull off and have you laugh. Statistician Blues where he tells us that 60% of statistics are made up right on the spot and 82.4 % of people believe them whether they're accurate statistics or not, and of course this crowd knew every word.

Nobody Asked, Just My Opinion____________________________________________________________________

There are quite a number of things that hit a nerve and truly irritate me! A number of these things deal with innocent animals, and the people who just don't get it. chain link fence, that had barbed wire on the top, to go in to an enclosed area and play with a couple of guard dogs. in, so the police shoot at the dogs, one gets hit in the leg and runs off and they spray the other one with a hose to keep him at bay. The officer scales the fence, grabs the boy, the ambulance comes and cuts the padlock and they rush the kid to the hospital, where at the time he was in serious condition. The dogs were taken to the Mass. Animal Rescue League, where they were later put down! the property? What about the kid who climbed in, jumped the fence and went on to private property? I don't get it. Is there anyone else out there besides myself that thinks this is pretty ridiculous? Or is it just me? Again, when do people become responsible for their actions? It seems in this day and age you don't. It's always someone else's fault. Sorry, I feel bad that the kid got mauled, but you know what, if he didn't climb the fence, go over the barbed wire and go on to private property - it never would have happened in the first place and the two dogs, just rightfully doing their jobs, would still be alive!

To The Editor______
How You Can Stop Gas/Diesel Tax in NH the Its simple, sign the Americans for Prosperity New Hampshire (AFP-NH) petition. Just go to our website at www.stopnhgastax.com. This will take less than two minutes and as the Honorary Chair of AFP-NH, I encourage each and every hard working New Hampshire citizen to sign the Gas/Diesel Tax Petition today and then forward this website to all your family members, neighbors and friends and encourage them to sign and pass it on. In March of 2009 the NH Democrats who held control of the Legislature tried to pass a Gas/Diesel Tax. Now three years later in a continued recession with the Democrats again in power they are back trying to saddle our citizens once again with the largest Gas/Diesel Tax ever. If HB 617 passes, which Rep. David Campbell (D) of Nashua is the key sponsor of, it will lead to a 15 cent jump per gallon or an increase of 83% in the Gas/Diesel Tax. If the current New Hampshire Gas/Diesel Tax, which already is 18 cents per gallon, was used 100% for our roads and bridges we would not be discussing this issue today. What has happened over the years is simply a diversion of the Gas/Diesel Tax funds for other programs. Since Rep. Campbell first introduced the Gas/Diesel Tax in early 2009 (which was defeated), gas and diesel prices have doubled, and now in 2013 he would like to add additional pain at the pump by increasing the tax by a whopping 83%.

Estimated time commitment is approximately 3-5 hours per month. Individual should be familiar with taking minutes, Microsoft Word and email. $50 per meeting. To request an application email administrator@warren-nh.com or call (603) 764-5780.

What does private property So now, this guy has two dogs mean today? who were put down, a lock that has been cut to gain access and There have been other stories in it was stated on at least one of the news over the years where the news programs that they people have jumped fences and were looking in to charging him! actually have gone in to pens at What?

Please bring with you your childs birth certificate, current immunization and health records. Proof of residency required, must list parent name and street address not a P.O. Box.

For businesses that depend on diesel to operate their large trucks hauling all kinds of products and produce such as forest, farm, home heating oil and groceries just to name a few, they will see additional cost if HB 617 passes. Some truckers could see up to 15 dollars a day increase per truck which will have to be passed on to you the consumer. Remember everything we consume moves on diesel, sometimes as many as four to five times during processing before we the consumer purchase the item. In my recent testimony opposing HB 617 I said, The prospect facing New Hampshire families is not only will it cost them more to fill up their tank to drive to the store, but when they get there, everything they need to purchase will be more expensive as well. This is not the time to be raising any tax on our citizens. You can help stop the Gas/Diesel Tax by signing the petition on our website, www.stopnhgastax.com. Please do it today and ask others to do the same; youll be glad you did. Tom Thomson AFP-NH Honorary Chairman Orford, NH

Inspiring Words for You!

Dear Friends, Romans 9:21-23 says, Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? As we all understand, our creator is the potter and we are the clay. In Isaiah 45:9 we read Does the clay say to the potter, what are you making? The purpose and the plan of the clay is in the potters mind. And when we submit ourselves completely to His will, He will mold us to the best vessel as He pleases. But most often, we, the clay are reluctant to submit ourselves to the Masters hand. We say that we do surrender all to Him, but there are areas where we think we know the best. God cannot work in our lives when He sees a free will in our lives. Jeremiah 18: 3-4 reads So I went down to the potters house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. Let God form you. He knows what He's doing! God love you all~! ~Submitted by Jeannine Bartlett

tivists, clean tech engineers, carbon-conscious policymakers and public officials, and Average Joes and Josephines committed to living sustainably. Together, well highlight the solutions and showcase the collective power of individuals taking action across the world, reports EDN. In doing so, we hope to inspire our leaders to act and inspire ourselves to redouble our efforts in the fight against climate change. For those looking to organize an Earth Day event locally this year, Earth Day Network provides a wide range of useful resources including basic guides for organizing events at schools and universities, in libraries and within faith communities, as well as posters, reading lists and so on. Teachers can also download Earth Day lesson plans and other curricula aids for their K12 classrooms. Beyond Earth Day itself, EDN runs the Billion Acts of Green campaign throughout the year with the goal of getting billions of people to take action on behalf of the environment, whether through encouraging policymakers to consider sustainability initiatives, recycling e-waste, planting trees, going solar, and much more. So far the group has tallied over a billion individual acts of green and is working on its second billion now. Anyone can register their own acts of green via the Earth Day Network website.

According to the group, which works with 22,000 partners in 92 countries, more than a billion people will take part in Earth Day events this year - Earth Day Network live twitter feed. The idea behind the theme is to personalize the challenge climate change presents by spreading the stories of those individuals, animals and places affected through imagery. Some of the images already part of the project include a man in the Maldives worried about relocating his family as sea levels rise, a polar bear in the melting arctic, a farmer in Kansas struggling to make ends meet as prolonged drought decimates crops, a tiger in Indias dwindling mangrove forests, a child in New Jersey who lost her home to Hurricane Sandy, an orangutan in Indonesian forests ravaged by bush fires and drought, and a woman in Bangladesh who cant get fresh water due to more frequent flooding and cyclones.

Leading up to April 22, EDN is collecting images of people, animals and places directly affected or threatened by climate change, as well as images of people stepping up to do something about it. Anyone can upload a relevant picture for inclusion via EDNs website. Then on and around Earth Day itself, an interactive digital display of all the images will be shown at thousands of events around the worldincluding next to federal government buildings in countries that produce the most carbon pollution.

Adventures in Homesteading

by Beth Weick

came a teenager and developed a distaste for mattresses, I used as my bedroll the soft, warm, thick sheepskin that the dolls had outgrown. Its been with me in dorm rooms, tents, silosthe various sleeping arrangements Ive had for myself. And now, of course, it is in our cabin. As the cabin was completed last fall, there was no question in my mind that Uncle Dave would have to have a special spot.

As I beand exercise that generate robust health, regardless of whatever current researchers come up with. Heres to enjoying all aftereffects!
