Okay - although very perturbed with the Oil Spill in the Gulf, I promise, I won’t go there again this week as much as I’d like to vent even more!
Let’s talk about some good stuff this time around - and some local stuff!
Within our mission to support all things local, the Northcountry News has added a new column called Mountain Beat, with Sky King.

Sky writes a very popular col- umn during the winter months called, “Skiing The Sky Way.” A popular local ski instructor, Sky writes a column on skiing and tips for skiing.
Sky is also a very good musi- cian and knows quite a lot, when it comes to the local music scene. So when I asked if he’d like to write about local music and musicians, he didn’t take very long to accept the mission.
I don’t care what anyone might say, but I feel we have some of the best musicians here in the White Mountain Region of NH and the Green Mountain

Featuring locally grown Vermont music from the Green Mountains!
Region of Vermont. We have everything from Bluegrass and folk to rock and Reggae.
I simply think there’s some hid- den gems out there just waiting to be heard and found out. If we can help our local bands get some recognition for their hard work, then I’ll be happy.
A great outlet for local music can also be found online at www.freevermontradio.org
. Although most of the bands are from the Vermont area, there are plenty from the north coun- try of NH also. For instance, you can listen to the Crunchy Western Boys at Free Vermont Radio and they are the topic of this week’s first Mountain Beat column. The Crunchy Western Boys or CWB are very local to these parts with band member Jim McCugh right here in Warren, NH.
We hope you enjoy the new col- umn.
We would also like to thank all of our “friends” on Facebook. We are now closing in on over 1,800 strong. It is very hum- bling to know, we have all those
friends out there!
Many times, you might find some news, headlines, infor- mation, fun stuff, etc. on our Facebook page, that you might not see in the pages of the paper due to timing of dead- lines, etc. So why not join us on Facebook if you haven’t already! You can find us at Northcountry News-NH. Hope to see you there!
Well, with Memorial Day already come and gone and summer upon us, there are many great things going on in the local area to keep you occu- pied.
Whether it be the lupine Festival this month in the Sugar Hill-Franconia Region or hiking some of NH’s tallest peaks, there is something for everyone.
So this summer, why not visit some of the local historical societies, museums, attractions and stores.
Support the local people, the farmer’s markets and farm stands. There’s more to do in

Nobody Really Asked, Just My Opinion!
B.E.F. To The Editor____
With a 9% unemployment rate, people losing their homes, the stock market on the fence, more and more jobs going out of the country, taxes forever rising… our county govern- ment decides to spend 38 mil- lion taxpayer dollars.
In these tough economic times our local politicians and gov- ernment employees are encour- aging an investment in an institution that will not only cost a great deal to build but much, much more to maintain. Imagine adding an estimated ¾ million dollars to our county tax bill in yearly maintenance alone.
How can we justify investing over $315,000 per inmate bed (based on 120 inmates)? How many of us reside in a home worth as much and how many of our school districts invest this much per student? If our own homes need upgrading would we chose to build in excess of our financial means or would we find economically feasible solutions? There is no question that improvements need to be made to the crowded jail but can’t changes be made that are more financially responsible?
What is it going to take to pro- voke some sanity in our county governments never ending appetite for spending our tax dollars? The big question is whether this white elephant is going to satisfy the needs of the prison or is it an ego trip for local officials.
