This very popular destina-tion for rock climbing enthusi-asts attracts climbers from allover the world. The construction of theConnector Trail will involveexcavation and some blasting inorder to cut a suitable trail intotwo prominent rock outcrop- pings that extend to the edge of Buffalo Road between the two parking lots. In order to safelyconstruct this trail, BuffaloRoad will be temporarilyrestricted to one lane accesswith traffic control signs andshort duration road closureswhile blasting operations areunderway. The Forest Service isworking with Town of Rumneyofficials to coordinate lane androad closures. Buffalo Roadshould be open evenings and onweekends. Please be aware thattemporary area closures within¼ mile of both parking lots will be necessary while blastingoperations are underway, andthe area will be posted accord-ingly. Once completed, climbers andvisitors will have a trail whichconnects the two parking lotsand eliminates the need for climbers to walk alongside theroad. The project is expected to becompleted by the end of December, 2014.

The Bath Library Book Clubwill be discussing “Talk FunnyGirl”, by Roland Merullo onThursday, November 13th at 6 pm at the Bath Public Library.In one of the poorest parts of rural New Hampshire, teenagegirls have been disappearing. For 17-year-old MarjorieRichards, the fear raised bythese abductions is the back-drop to what she lives with her own home, every day. Marjoriehas been raised by parents sointentionally isolated from nor-mal society that they havedeveloped their own dialect.Marjorie is tormented by her classmates, who call her “TheTalk-funny girl,” but as thenearby factory town sinks deep-er into economic ruin and as her  parents fall more completelyunder the influence of a sadisticcult leader, her options for escape dwindle. But then,thanks to a loving aunt,Marjorie is hired by a man,himself a victim of abuse, whois building what he calls “acathedral,” right in the center of town. Books may be picked up at theBath Library; hours areTuesdays and Thursdays9:00am to noon and 1:00pm to6:00pm and Saturdays 9:00amto noon. Anyone with an interest in read-ing and conversing about booksis welcome to attend.

Havingnow finished 31 years in theclassroom, I am slowly return-ing to tossing out jokes, but one problem is people’s sense of humor has changed – there aremany who find most anything  offensive. However, from whatI have seen of Facebook, for many virtually anything goes – all of George Carlin’s sevenwords show up regularly. In my public postings, I usually don’tswear but use the occasionalgrawlix (look it up). I am so ashamed of myself. Iwatched “Alaska Monsters,which a carbon copy of “Mountain Monsters.”According to one reviewer:“The show (like every episodeof  Mountain Monsters ) endswith the crew making vagueinsinuations and wisecracksabout the existence of the crea-ture in an attempt to convince aviewer that he hasn’t just wit-nessed a load of complete bullsh*t.”So Ebola has made it to the US, but the public health systemassures us we really have noreason to be concerned. Why isit that all I can think of are thenine most feared words in theUS: “I’m from the governmentand I’m here to help.”Flash mobs! One of the bestthings evah ! In the undyingwords of Maynard G. Krebs, Iget a little misty when I seewhat positive things people cando. Toss in a  Les Mis song, I ama wreck. The link that follows isthe first one I ever saw. Enjoy:https://www.youtube.com/watc   h?v=bQLCZOG202k The Stateline is home to arecord-holding bovine beauty.Blosom is the world’s tallestcow, with the designation justawarded to her by GuinnessWorld Records . Blosom is 6’4”tall at her shoulder, which isactually taller than Bulls star Derrick Rose. Blosom’s owner says she knew Blosom was spe-cial when she was a calf. “Wewon. We kept her. She’s hereand even though she couldn’thave a calf like with most cows,she does have a purpose. She’sthe official greeter to thefarm,”said Hanson. [ WIFR ]Is this the US? I saw a storyrecently abouta US store thathas two American flags and twoMexican flags flying outside, but the Mexican flag appears to be flying much higher than theU.S. flag, which according tofederal code is not allowed.While the U.S. Supreme Courtsaid that the provisions laid outfor how to display the Americanflag cannot be enforced becausedoing so would infringe uponone’s free speech, it is outra-geous that a city council wouldapply their city’s law to outlawa flag that stands for freedom,yet allow the flag of another country to be not just flown, butdisplayed higher than theAmerican flag. PC lives!So, as of this writing, I justwatched videos of a fight between NASCAR drivers after a race, NFL fans in a couple of  brawls, teen football playerscharged with sexual assault, athief stealing gifts from a wed-ding, two teen girls doing a dineand dash, trampling a waitress breaking her femur and ankle,dozens of teens brawl at theArizona State Fair, a dog badlycut up, and so it goes! Whatever happened to basic decency? Irealize these are the stories thatget posted, but come on. Peopleare supposed to be making theworld a better   place!Another week and a half andit’ll be voting time. As sure asthe sun will rise tomorrow,there are the party faithful who put up every Republican/Democratic candi-date’s sign available and onlyvote by party. The only problemI have with that is the Orwellian  Animal Farm  philosophy“Republicans good. Democrats bad” (or vice versa). I  struggle with many political positions! Iwish more people did, but thatmight involve thinking.One of the hardest questions todeal with in society is what todo with the mentally ill. “Ikilled that lady,” the 10-year-old boy told a Pennsylvaniastate trooper, after a 90-year-oldwoman was found dead in thehome of the boy’s grandfather.Tristen Kurilla, a fifth grader,made the chilling confessionafter his mother brought him toa Pennsylvania State PoliceBarracks. Now, Kurilla is beingheld at the Wayne CountyCorrectional Facility andcharged as an adult with crimi-nal homicide. The boy is sepa-rated from adult offenders andis being constantly supervised, WBRE  reported. The boyadmitted to grabbing a woodencane, holding it against 90-year-old Helen Novak’s throatfor several seconds and punch-ing her in the throat and stom-ach, according to the policeaffidavit. Kurilla told police hewas angry at Novak becauseshe had yelled at him when heentered her room. He said hewanted to ask her a question.Were you trying to kill her? thetrooper asked the boy.”No, Iwas only trying to hurt her,”Kurilla replied.Finally, “Nothing is ever lost bycourtesy. It is the cheapest of  pleasures, costs nothing, andconveys much.” ErastusWiman. Be decent, people..  ......Later  NH Y outh Deer Hunt Set For Weekend_  __   New Hampshire’s youth deer weekend, Saturday and Sunday,October 25-26, 2014, is the per-fect time to take a youngster hunting. This special weekendgives young people age 15 andyounger the opportunity to godeer hunting with an adult men-tor, without the pressure of competing with thousands of adult hunters. Accompanying adults must belicensed hunters and are notallowed to carry a firearm; theidea is to concentrate your timeand attention on coaching your young companion. Prospects for this year’s youthseason are good, according toDan Bergeron, Deer ProjectLeader for the New HampshireFish and Game Department. New Hampshire’s deer popula-tion is healthy and will provideexcellent opportunities. In2013, young hunters took 483deer during the youth weekend. “The weekend presents a greatopportunity to introduce your son or daughter, grandchild, or even a young friend to the joys,excitement, and rewards of deer hunting; all under the carefulguidance of an experiencedadult” said Bergeron. “You canhelp teach them about the sightsand sounds of the forest, how tointerpret wildlife sign, and howto use this knowledge to track and harvest a white-tailed deer.It’s a great excuse to get young people and yourself, out in thefresh air, have some fun, andenjoy some beautiful fallfoliage. Teaching a young per-son how to hunt and seeingtheir excitement can help eventhe most avid hunter remember why they love the sport somuch. This shared experience  Story continues on page A8
