Moving on with a Pinpoint on a map

RECENTLY, I RECEIVED a query from a longtime reader as to how I managed to get a camp on a leased lot on government land in the Connecticut Lakes Headwaters Tract. This was not the first time I'd had this question.

Seacoast, Maine border region offer fantastic ice fishing opportunities

THERE'S A LOT of places that we love to ice fish, but many of them are small enough that we avoid naming them in a column for fear that it would bring too much fishing pressure on them. But there are quite a few larger bodies of water (or ice as in this column) that we don't have any problem mentioning.

Beech trees hang on to many of their leaves in the winter; dried leaves on groupings like these young trees make a chattering sound in the breeze.

MANY INDIVIDUAL trees in various places are trees I would call my favorites. The catalpa tree beside our barn, for instance, is glorious when at full bloom around the Fourth of July.



From stray to stardom: Shelter puppies to participate in Puppy Bowl

Seven dogs that were once sheltered at the Humane Society for Greater Nashua will be participating in Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl this weekend.

Ben Morris, 13, and Adam Morris, 16, sons of Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce president Donna Morris, spent the snow day with Sasha, a resident of the Salem Animal Rescue League. The shelter sent many of its animals to “blizzard foster homes” in advance of the storm. The critters that stayed behind were cared for by two staffers that spent Tuesday night at the shelter.
