NO OBLIGATION Concord boy is poster child CONCORD--Tyler Jansen of Concord, who was the 1981 March of Dimes Poster Child, has once again been selected as the 1982 March of Dimes Poster Child. Tyler who is now eight years old, was born with congenital amputation of both arms. He represents the quarter million infants who are born each year with physical or mental birth defects. Selection of the poster child was announced by Mr. David Roberge, 1982 chairman of the March of Dimes Executive Board. Tyler is the son of Claire and Jim Jansen, and the brother of Eric Jansen who is 11 years old. In addition to his activities as March of Dimes Poster Child, Tyler loves to ride his bike and play soccer. He enjoys school and is now in the 3rd grade at Rumford School. Some of the adventures Tyler was involved in as 1981 Poster Child were: He was Sell- lelp campaign telps save energy LITTLETON-- Putting homes in order for the onslaught of winter is traditional at this time of year throughout northern New Hampshire and Vermont. Littleton's Welfare and Unemployment Self-Help Clinic and the Community Action Program have been working with local families to accomplish this goal through the use of group self-help labor, a technique which may be increasingly common in the near future. With significant reductions in most federal resources for lower-income people having taken effect Oct. 1, CAP has been investigating for some time home repair strategies within the private sector to meet the area's housing needs. "We've taken the President to heart when he talks of. community in- volvement and working with the private sector," says CAP Housing Director Christopher Brooks. "With a huge backlog of families waiting for funds to weatherize their homes, we've had to try to develop some methods to get help out to people before the snow falls. Our job would be easier with increased funding, but we're realists. We work with what we've got." Organizing groups with six to eight families each in Bristol (in cooperation with the Newfound Area Nursing Association) and Littleton (with the Self-Help Clinic), CAP contributed individual grants of $200 and $400 to participating families and project coordination and bookkeeping. Each local agency con- tributed staff time to recruit and certify eligible elderly and low-income family households willing to provide their own labor And the families contributed the hands, backs, and time to do the actual work, which ranged in scope from energy-related repairs (such as roof and furnace repair) to con- struction of block chimneys and installation of airtight woodstoves, according to an agency spokesman. CAP bought 55 airtight woodstoves in a bulk purchase from Northern Fabricators in Berlin, and made the stoves available to participating families at wholesale cost. Each family paid the excess costs of the stove and-or repairs over the grant maximum. "We're particularly pleased with the wood heat con- versions," said Brooks this week. "The project par- ticipants were selected on the basis of need and high fuel oil consumption in the past" he says, "we we're reducing their future dependence on the federal fuel assistance programs. We're also leveraging the families' labor, helping the woodstove manufacturer provide jobs ia the Berlin area, and in general getting a lot of mileage out of a small amount of funds."
