If you didn't get any call Phil @ 849-6208.  He was out, but just got more.

Ted Cleary reported on his Facebook page that his Dad passed away at 9:50 last night.  Thoughts and prayers to the entire Cleary family at this difficult time.

Some have asked what benefit these have for us locals.  When it comes to energy production, we need to think more universally.  Yes, we want to reduce our dependance on foreign oil and that is one reason.  Cost to us as rate payers is another.  One I haven't seen mentioned here much is reducing our emissions.  Wind and solar are not always the most cost effective or unobtrusive sources.  However, we do need to do something about saving our planet.  These two sources are clean and hopefully help preserve our clean air that we really enjoy here in Vermont compared to many other states.  I do think we need to progress to meet our energy needs.  Many of our nuclear power plants are aging, oil production has its own set of issues, get it here, get it there, what about the environment, natural gas is clean emissions wise, but fracking can be an issue, coal as has been mentioned here has downsides.  I think one of the solutions is to diversify our energy sources.  Personally speaking I don't mind the looks very much.  I'm anxious to see them in operation.  We do need to not ravage every vista with turbines, coal mining etc., fields of solar panels which again makes the case for diversity.  I do wonder about the impact on folks who have homes in the area and hope that there are not ill effects on them.  That would not be an acceptable trade off.  Hopefully there have been studies on such.  Would also support buying any parts possible in the US.  Unfortunately I think the reality is that we just don't manufacture that much here any more.  My two cents for the day.

Dear Mr. Brown,

Sorry to hear your latest update.  Sending lots of good thoughts your way.  Thanks for everything you've done for BFA and Fairfax.  You are an all around great guy.  Hugs.

Besides McNall Rd apparently several folks on Goose Pond also got hit from the guy who we talked to about a security system.  A dog isn't an option for us, which is too bad as they have other lovely benefits.  So probably the security system is the way to go.  Maybe a mean security guard.  Anybody looking for work? Smiley

Husqvarna chainsaws and alot of different power tools to answer Lilone.

Just another reminder that you need to secure your belongings and watch out for your neighbors property when they aren't home.  After installing deadbolts on our house to deter thieves they moved to the garage.  If anyone tries to sell chainsaws or power tools on the cheap, they might be from our house, so we'd appreciate hearing from you.  Ellsworth Rd Fletcher.

Henry, Lynn, Sharon and Mary Kay:

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news.  She was a cheerleader to many young ladies beyond your family through Girl Scouts and other school activities.  Her support was really appreciated.  Red Sox nation has lost a huge fan!  Will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers during this time of tremendous loss.

Thanks for the replies so far, more welcome.  I would love to have Surfglobal, they are still not able to get to us.  We're in a valley and as such, makes it difficult to beam things in.  We have Dish network for TV, but at least according to the search, we can't get internet services.  Don't really want to switch over again or have two providers.  We have Verizon cell phones and get spotty service in our office, so . . . as you can see we've been checking everything for several years.  Looks like it will be a race between Fairpoint DSL and Globalnet, both of whom tell me upgrades are on the way.  BTW, I heard some real nightmare stories about Hughesnet, hope your experience continues to be positive FletcherGram.  Was hoping someone close by had DSL so I could possibly speed up Fairpoint with more demand.  Oh well I'll have to be patient.
13  Fairfax News / Current News & Events / Re: DSL location on: June 23, 2010, 11:39:14 AM
That's a little too far I think.  He said try for someone 1/4 mile or less.  If you're up a mile, you're over a mile from us as we're on Ellsworth in Fletcher.  Thanks for replying.
14  Fairfax News / Current News & Events / DSL location on: June 22, 2010, 11:23:05 PM
I spoke with Fairpoint today to add a service and while I had them on the line asked if DSL was available/would be available at my house anytime soon.  They said I should find out how close it was to my house.  If I have a neighbor close by, they would send an engineer to determine my availability.  If you have DSL and live on Wilkins or Tabor Hill Rd in Fairfax or Ellsworth Rd in Fletcher, could you reply to this message and let me know where you are.  Dial up is getting so old!  Broadband can't beam in as we're in a little valley.  Thanks.
