the less than stellar per- formance of the Depart- ment during the 11-hour power outage, came to the attention of some of these people. Here’s what one of those people had to say: “Very knowledgeable ar-

This is Audrey’s faithful freezer, once an ice-cream freezer as you can see by looking at the lids. It was given to her father for the hauling, eons ago, It still soldiers on today. It’s made by Kelvinator, a part of Nash-Kelvinator which in 1954 merged with The Hudson Motor Car Company to form American Motors Corporation. Audrey’s old boiler lurks in the background.

en like you said the peak was shaved for two reasons, the contract would allow PSNH to charge a percentage of the high peak in a given year, if that was higher than the monthly peak... Also in cold months we shaved the peak on cold days, like Dec. The last contract that I was a part of PSNH offered us $25K off the bill each month just to include us as part of
their “reserve.” When I first started in 1963 the year we went high line, the school was not built until after that. Eric [the late Eric Erickson] was looking for a winter peak to even things out... If we got rid of East Alton (where we should not have been or Tuftonboro for that matter), we would not have the load. I asked the School about convert- ing several times, however they said Kingswood was their most cost effective

In 1963 we were buying oil for 6 cents per gallon... there was a time they tried No. 6 oil but I guess before my time it gummed up the engines. Mr. Paul Skowron (a for-

Message of the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY Medjugorje, Bosnia-Hercegovina
“Dear children! Today I desire to give you hope and joy. Everything that is around you, little children, leads you towards worldly things but I desire to lead you towards a time of grace, so that through this time you may be all the closer to my Son, that He can lead you towards His love and eternal life, for which every heart yearns. You, little children, pray and may this time for you be one of grace for your soul. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
