Page 8-The Journal Opinion-September 23, 1981 I by MARY HANSON and KIM NICiLES WH.S. has a new library aid very intelligent once. He had a this year, Mrs. Mary Ingalls. scholarship to go to college She formerly worked at the scot-free, but drugs were Woodsville Public Library for more important. He did three years. Mrs. Ingalls will be assisting Mrs Mullen, our head librarian. Mrs. Stickney left WHS last year and we miss her dearly. Mrs. Ingalls lives in N. Haverhill and enjoys her working hours at WHS. All of us here hope she will enjoy her new job and stay here a long time. The FFA is doing well in corn sales. To date, 60 dozen ears have been sold. We still have more, so get it now while supplies last. Acorn squash is now in season and for sale at WHS. The price is 30 cents per pound. On Friday the 18th, Debbie Poor, Steve Lackie and Janet Lackie will be going to Eastern States to represent New Hampshire in the FFA Eastern Region Horse Judging Contest. A persona/report This report is on drugs from personal experiences and what I know to be true. I'm sure the people I want to he influenced the most aren't going to listen. I know I never could, but if just one person out there does, it will be well worth it. You might think using drugs makes you feel good or helps you forget what's bothering you. But what happens when the effects wear off? You're right back where you started from. Nothing is any better than it was before. You're just a little more messed up. When I started smoking grass, it seemed to he the in- thing to do. You just weren't cool if you didn't. Now, what I've found out is that it is not cool at all. Friends that try to talk you into taking drugs aren't really friends at all. They just want to bring you down with them, because, let's face it, no one wants to go alone. Only people who think they need an escape from life take dry. nut when about IL as so many people have said, life is what you make it. I didn't believe this little cliche either, but I'm finding it to be true more and more each day. I know a person who was everything from grass to heroine. He threw away that, in essence, was his life. He ended up losing his wife and children because he just didn't care. In seeing what drugs did to this person, I took a long, hard look at myself. I found myself not so different from him. I was losing my family and friends because I, too, didn't care. I've watched my life go down the tubes in all senses of the phrase. My grades went down as did my self-respect. I thought I was a big shot and I'd laugh at myself, but I was really crying inside. My parents have spent endless hours trying to tell me how bad drugs were, but what did they know? No, no one could tell me anything. I knew it all. Now that I've finally woke up, I'm straightening myself out. For me, it isn't too late. It's sad to say, but for many it is. The pieces of my life aren't going to be easy to put back together, but I'm sure going to try. You are a human being with a mind of your own. Don't ever let anyone lower you. If you've made a mistake realize it and start over. There's nothing in this world worth ruining yourself for, especially not the so'called "in" crowd. Be the buss of your life and take control. It takes more strength and guts to say no to drugs, and you can be proud of that. I've made myself a public example and I'm not ashamed. I know there are a lot of people out there worth speaking to. I just hope and pray they listen. by KIM NICHLES BABY GIRL ARRIVES Mr. and Mrs. James Red- mond, Jr., of Newbury are the parents of a new baby girl, Kathryn Anne, born on August 27 at Mary Hitchcock Hospital. BEE MEETING ST. JOHNSBURY--There will he an informational meeting for all beekeepers at. the Caledonia County Extension Office on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at7:50p.m. m.mmSALE LAND DRAINAGE PIPE Available Thursday Price, if taken at once, 22 cents afoot 250 foot, 100 foot and 10 foot lengths. STRICTLY CASH Top fire officials in W. Topsham AUCTION W. TOPSHAM--A panel of seven top fire officials in- cluding Deputy State Fire Marshall Larry Wade, Ver- mont Firefighters Association (VFA) Assistant Supervisor of Training George Gibbey, and Orange County States Attorney James McKnight, answered questions from Orange County firemen at the W. Topsham Community Hall on Thursday, Sept. 17. The meeting was set up by Orange County VFA representatives William Coughey and John Tracy to be a forum for discussion of problems facing the 18 fire departments in Orange County. Deputy fire marshall Larry Wade fielded most of the questions, which ranged in subject from hazardous waste spills to Life Safety codes for public buildings. Wade told the group, "the system is getting better," responding to questions concerning central organization from a town of Washington representative. Wade cited moves resulting from VFA seminars and a state legislative committee to mprove organization and !ncrease the number of fire |nspectors in the state. He said another VFA sponsored committee is trying to meet deadlines for a $23,000 grant "to study and find solutions to problems such as training, finding money, code unifor- mity, and others." Hazardous Waste Spills Wade stressed the im- portance for local fire departments to call the Hazardous Waste Emergency Hot-Line phone number (828- 3100) in the event of suspected hazardous waste spills. He said the purpose of calling in is not only to obtain detailed information on what to do but also for documentation pur- poses. States attorney McKnight, in answering questions from a Randolph representative, explained methods involved in insuring that the cost of cleaning up the spills are paid by those responsible and not picked up by the town. McKnight said, "the chemical companies, even from out of state, are very sensitive to publicity connecting them with hazardous waste spills." he sald the companies are usually anxious to settle quickly because of the publicity involved. The Randolph fire depar- tment representative said there were as many as a dozen Hazardous waste spills in his area on Interstate 89 over the past year. Arson Update Wade reported that since the passage of the Arson Immunity Law last year, insurance companies are now more cooperative in arson cases than they have been in the past.

After the panel discussion, a film entitled "Arson is a Costly Crime" was shown. Also appearing on the panel were Orange County VFA l representatives William Caughey and John Tracy; Forest District Supervisor J. Lackey, and Orange County Sheriff Gerald Eldridge. qv "k Tempers flare at meeti00 (continued from page I ) going to come to you everytime I need some little part down at the plant," he told Garone. Garone countered, "You do not have the authority to go out and buy something on your own... That's why there are three of us on the board--to vote on the spending of tax dollars as we see fit." Welch was not satisfied, claiming his authority was needed "to run things the best way I know how." Spaulding, later in the week said, "No one is saying Don hasn't done an excellent job in the village." She repo'ted at Wednesday's trustees meeting that inspectors from the state environmental board had given the sewage treatment plant an "acceptable" rating, the highest given out. Welch took over the plant after plant operator, Donald Mercier and his assistant Rocky Davis resigned last February. Davis was recently awarded $1,117.19 from the village through the state labor board for hack overtime pay for work connected with the plant. Welch has said, for the first time in three years of operation, the sewage treatment plant "is not run- ning at a deficit." But Slmuldtng says this is not entirely true. The village's financial statement shows that as of August 31, 1981, there is still a $7,529.86 deficit in the sewer fund. Sidewalks and Drains In other business at the meeting, the trustees agreed to repair only the part of the sidewalk in front of Hill's Department Store that belongs to the village. A drain in the sidewalk is damaged and the trustees say they would like it repaired for safety reasorm. The trustees discussed their concern over a broken railing in front of the Town Mark which is connected to a raised part of the sidewalk. The trustees decided to inform the owner of the building that the railing and raised sidewalk are not considered village property. Snowplow Bids Tabled Welch motioned at the meeting for discussion of this winters snowplow bids to be tabled. Welch said after the agenda item had been tabled, "No.boci has ever plowed the roads in this village cheaper than Don Welch."

Before you begin, here are some suggestions to help you estimate just how much paint to buy for a given house painting job: (1) Compute the number of square feet of surface to he covered. To do so, determine the distance around the house, in feet, then find the aver- age height to the eaves and add two feet to that figure. lThi0 will allow for the paint you'll need for the gablo) Last; MiOltlply the former result by the latter. {2) Ask your paint dealer approximately how many square feet each gallon of undercoat will cover, then divide the to- tal area of the house by this figure. (3) Finally, learn how much area a gallon of topcoat house paint will cov- er and compute how much of that you'll need. Here's an example: Let's say your home is 20' by 40' with an average height t the eaves of 13'. By multiplying 120' (the perimeterl by 15' (the average height to the eaves plus 2, you'll find that the surface area is about 1,800 square feet. A good grade of undercoat or primer should cover about 350 square feet per gallon, and a top-quality house paint covers 400 square feet per gal- lon. A little simple arithmetic reveals that 5 gallons of undercoat and 4-1/2 of house paint should do the job. The first portion of your house painting task is sur- face preparation, which usually involves scraping, sanding, and caulking.., with maybe a bit of priming here and there. It'll take about half a da for the aver- age home. Begin by hosing down the exterior surfaces, then scrape any peeling, cracked, or chipped spots. (Areas which are taken down to the bare wood should get a coat of primer.) Finally, replace any loose or missing putty around windows, and recaulk the window frames, doors, and chimneys as needed. The second part of the chore is painting the trim and windows. The trim is usually easy, unless you've got an old house with overhanging eaves (wear a hat for this job). If you use care when painting the windows, you'll save time in the long run, because you won't have to scrape the panes later on. Then comes the main body of the house.., which is the easiest part, because you can use a wide brush and make long strokes. For large, smooth areas you can try painting with an industrial roller. It holds a lot of paint and, in most cases, will cover as well as a brush.., but do so much more quickly. Don't forget drying time.., allow at least 48 hours between coats. The final task is to clean up the yard area by gather- ing stray paint chips, old caulking, and putty, and throwing them away. (Do a good job.., scraps 6f old paint can be ingested by children and cause lead poi- soning.) Once you've finished, you can sit back and re- lax, knowing you've done a thorough job and hedged yourself against inflation one more time!

We don't want to be in violation of the law, . but we have to do something real soon." Pratt proposed having a paid employee as a security officer. Ide said, "If George Pratt wants to file an application we'll continue to research it." Pratt plans to level the land, immediately expand the existing shop and restaurant and eventually build a bonded warehouse, and a motel. Pratt says that by agreement with Delbert Leete the name will be changed within a few months, (but the cooks will stay the same). Attorney Gavin Reid said, "If yon can have a manager for a motel why can't yon have a manager for another allowed use,. or perhaps security as an accessory use. The program is where you draw the line: Residential house--no; a motel manager--yes; the problem is the area in between." In other matters, it was reported by committee members that ten building permits and four sewage permits' ere issued in the past month.

Klark reported that an at- torney still had not, as of the time of the meeting, been contacted regarding three buildings owned by Ralph Wright of Haverhill, that the commissioners and the Haverhill selectmen feel should be repaired. The commissioners decided to send copies of the letter to the commissioners from the Haverhill Selectmen to those owning property adjacent to the properties in question. Along with the letter will be a letter from the commissioners explaining the situation. The selectmen's letter called for non-legal action from the town to persuade Wright to repair the buildings.

STRICTLY CASH Top fire officials in W. Topsham AUCTION W. TOPSHAM--A panel of seven top fire officials in- cluding Deputy State Fire Marshall Larry Wade, Ver- mont Firefighters Association (VFA) Assistant Supervisor of Training George Gibbey, and Orange County States Attorney James McKnight, answered questions from Orange County firemen at the W. Topsham Community Hall on Thursday, Sept. 17. The meeting was set up by Orange County VFA representatives William Coughey and John Tracy to be a forum for discussion of problems facing the 18 fire departments in Orange County. Deputy fire marshall Larry Wade fielded most of the questions, which ranged in subject from hazardous waste spills to Life Safety codes for public buildings. Wade told the group, "the system is getting better," responding to questions concerning central organization from a town of Washington representative. Wade cited moves resulting from VFA seminars and a state legislative committee to mprove organization and !ncrease the number of fire |nspectors in the state. He said another VFA sponsored committee is trying to meet deadlines for a $23,000 grant "to study and find solutions to problems such as training, finding money, code unifor- mity, and others." Hazardous Waste Spills Wade stressed the im- portance for local fire departments to call the Hazardous Waste Emergency Hot-Line phone number (828- 3100) in the event of suspected hazardous waste spills. He said the purpose of calling in is not only to obtain detailed information on what to do but also for documentation pur- poses. States attorney McKnight, in answering questions from a Randolph representative, explained methods involved in insuring that the cost of cleaning up the spills are paid by those responsible and not picked up by the town.

Before you begin, here are some suggestions to help you estimate just how much paint to buy for a given house painting job: (1) Compute the number of square feet of surface to he covered. To do so, determine the distance around the house, in feet, then find the aver- age height to the eaves and add two feet to that figure. lThi0 will allow for the paint you'll need for the gablo) Last; MiOltlply the former result by the latter. {2) Ask your paint dealer approximately how many square feet each gallon of undercoat will cover, then divide the to- tal area of the house by this figure. (3) Finally, learn how much area a gallon of topcoat house paint will cov- er and compute how much of that you'll need. Here's an example: Let's say your home is 20' by 40' with an average height t the eaves of 13'. By multiplying 120' (the perimeterl by 15' (the average height to the eaves plus 2, you'll find that the surface area is about 1,800 square feet. A good grade of undercoat or primer should cover about 350 square feet per gallon, and a top-quality house paint covers 400 square feet per gal- lon. A little simple arithmetic reveals that 5 gallons of undercoat and 4-1/2 of house paint should do the job. The first portion of your house painting task is sur- face preparation, which usually involves scraping, sanding, and caulking.., with maybe a bit of priming here and there. It'll take about half a da for the aver- age home. Begin by hosing down the exterior surfaces, then scrape any peeling, cracked, or chipped spots. (Areas which are taken down to the bare wood should get a coat of primer.) Finally, replace any loose or missing putty around windows, and recaulk the window frames, doors, and chimneys as needed. The second part of the chore is painting the trim and windows. The trim is usually easy, unless you've got an old house with overhanging eaves (wear a hat for this job). If you use care when painting the windows, you'll save time in the long run, because you won't have to scrape the panes later on. Then comes the main body of the house.., which is the easiest part, because you can use a wide brush and make long strokes. For large, smooth areas you can try painting with an industrial roller. It holds a lot of paint and, in most cases, will cover as well as a brush.., but do so much more quickly. Don't forget drying time.., allow at least 48 hours between coats. The final task is to clean up the yard area by gather- ing stray paint chips, old caulking, and putty, and throwing them away. (Do a good job.., scraps 6f old paint can be ingested by children and cause lead poi- soning.) Once you've finished, you can sit back and re- lax, knowing you've done a thorough job and hedged yourself against inflation one more time!

We don't want to be in violation of the law, . but we have to do something real soon." Pratt proposed having a paid employee as a security officer. Ide said, "If George Pratt wants to file an application we'll continue to research it." Pratt plans to level the land, immediately expand the existing shop and restaurant and eventually build a bonded warehouse, and a motel. Pratt says that by agreement with Delbert Leete the name will be changed within a few months, (but the cooks will stay the same). Attorney Gavin Reid said, "If yon can have a manager for a motel why can't yon have a manager for another allowed use,. or perhaps security as an accessory use. The program is where you draw the line: Residential house--no; a motel manager--yes; the problem is the area in between."

Klark reported that an at- torney still had not, as of the time of the meeting, been contacted regarding three buildings owned by Ralph Wright of Haverhill, that the commissioners and the Haverhill selectmen feel should be repaired. The commissioners decided to send copies of the letter to the commissioners from the Haverhill Selectmen to those owning property adjacent to the properties in question. Along with the letter will be a letter from the commissioners explaining the situation. The selectmen's letter called for non-legal action from the town to persuade Wright to repair the buildings.
