At the closing of the workshop all concerned agreed that the training and creativity that took place the three days had been worth all the efforts. One young lady from Union 36 summed it up when she said, that it was worth missing "regular" school and having to make up missed assignments. The man who conducted the workshop and had numerous Bradford high school students visiting during the workshops, Frank Gonzalez, taught Art at Bradford Elementary School six years ago. Then as now, Gonzalez, a soft-spoken artist, believes in children and their talents. "Is that Frank Gonzalez?" was a familiar question heard at Oxbow High School, Sept. 21 through 23. The answer, of course, was "Yes!" He sees a classroom or school as the place where children eagerly satisfy their curiosity about their world and are stimulated to develop their creativity. His philosophy developed the creative learning atmosphere that penetrated the Oxbow Auditorium last week. The training workshop will be followed up with a residency in the elementary schools by area puppet-and theater-skilled artist, Robert Higgins. Beginning Oct. 12, Higgius will go to schools and continue the puppet workshop. The trained teachers and students from the Gonzalez workshops will act as assistants to Higgius, helping a larger number of students to learn the art of puppetry.

New town dump for Corinth CORINTH-- Townspeople in Corinth may now be taking their trash to a new dump. After a lengthy search by a special dump-site search committee formed by town officials, the town has located a new dump site on Route 25 near the Corinth-Bradford town line. The new dump will be owned and operated by Corinth resident Norman Hayward. Corinth will pay about $10,000 per year out of the town budget for use of the town by town residents. That figure is based on a charge of $1d per person this year, which will increase to $11 per person in 1983. The Town of Corinth has a population of just over 900 persons, say the latest census figures. The search for a new dump began over a year ago when the state requested town officials to close the old dump, which is running out of room, to look for a new one. The town was faced with choices of hiring a rubbish removal service to truck its refuse out of town, buying property to operate a municipal dump, or it setting up a deal like its agreement with Hayward. The new dump is expected to officially operating sometime this fall after the town's selectmen meet to give the dump their official okay. -k New Hampshire voters PUPPET CONSTRUCTION--Frank Gonzalez, Puppet Workshop leader, is shown working with Bryan King of Union 36 Elementary School as another fifth grade student looks on.
