Ah yes how the few Pro- Northern Pass people love their Kool-Aid. 1.From the article above and the Northern Pass website... "The project has agreed to bury 8 miles of line in the northern section of the route." Agreed with who? And the answer is no one. In the particular area that they are so willing to bury 8 miles of their line, it isn't to appease anyone's concerns except the Northern Pass's. Their route is completely blocked there by unwilling landowners so they HOPE they can be granted access through by going underground. Stay tuned for that wrestling match. 2. What does anybody really believe the majority of young people of NH think of the possibility of the siting of the Northern Pass as currently proposed considering it's promise of temporary jobs and lower electrical rates that might achieve a jaw dropping $3.00 savings per month? Come on, they must be "stoked"! For anyone who might not know, stoked = exhilarated. I know "BestPresidentReagan", it's a National Security Issue. Better mix up another batch of Kool-Aid. ...(full comment)

Burying electrical transmission lines not so simple

Well, I just reread my comment and realized it's pretty much what John_V_Kjellman wrote, albeit in slightly different words. ...(full comment)

Another danger of straight ticket voting is that you might unknowingly vote for a candidate whose views are diametrically opposed to your own. The term "RINO" has, of course, been bandied about for years, but there are also "DINO's" - folks running as Dems but holding far-right views. It behooves us all, no matter where we are on the political spectrum, to learn everything we can about all the candidates, and to refrain from voting for someone we know nothing about simply because they are running under a particular banner. ...(full comment)

Um, he's actually pretty weird. I didn't think so until I read his above message. I'm with Walter. ...(full comment)

You think beancounter is tillie??? I can tell you for sure that is not so. What a funny thought. And beancounter has been an active commenter for quite a while, although at times he was simply too busy to even read the paper. ...(full comment)

Gee Walter, you know a lot about my work experience despite the fact you know nothing. I was specifically told by my supervisor when I asked if I could have an unlisted phone that no, I could not. That my job required 24/7 access, as did those of my co-workers. Clients called us at home all the time. Mostly it wasn't a problem, but some of them were dangerous. I was threatened with a knife at one point so I take a dim view of people castigating state workers. ...(full comment)

tillie, That's rather puzzling since the Tea Partiers named themselves. Makes no sense to take umbrage at a name you call yourself. ...(full comment)

No from experience I believe he is not joking. Any references to tea party ( which I guess now is a slur) etc would not be allowed but all name calling of liberals would go on as usual. ...(full comment)

Baloney. Anything you did from your own home had nothing to do with being a public employee and you know it. You also know that your employee (e.g. the state) had rules regarding your use of a computer on your work desk. Posting on CM from work-something no employee should do. Posting on CM from home USING YOUR OWN NAME-nothing your employee would care about. ...(full comment)

Speaking of "setting the record straight", how is 'Walter' any more (or less) forthcoming with his ID than 'Larry'? Is there only one Walter in New Hampshire...in New England? ...(full comment)

Ducktranny, How can one masquerading as a 'lady' ever endeavor to set any record straight? Otherwise, lurking is not the same as participating, and perusing is not the same as comprehending. As far as I'm concerned, the tenure of Mr Tillie, er...I mean, beancounter, in this forum, was conceived when he began to participate, which was of late in real time. Aside from all that, Beanie Boy may define you, but he doesn't define me. Ducktranny "setting the record straight"; that's a certified kneeslappuh...lol! ...(full comment)

There is a major difference with having houses on a lake and having houses with a large campground on a lake. The residence are right to be concerned about the impact on the lake and having a campground in their backyard. The removal of the trees alone will have a large environmental impact to the area. ...(full comment)
