Whatís a home performance assessment?

And why would you want to have one?


A Home Performance Assessment (HPA) is a comprehensive evaluation of your home based on the ďhouse as a systemĒ approach favored by building scientists.  An HPA includes a variety of diagnostic tests and analyses: energy audit with blower door tests, combustion safety analysis, carbon monoxide testing, health and safety evaluation, and indoor air quality. 


Based on the results, you receive a written report with prioritized recommendations: energy usage analysis, savings and ROI (return on investment) calculations, weatherization opportunities, airflow evaluation and requirements, mechanical ventilation requirements, and health and safety concerns. There are incentives through many utilities in NH and the federal and state governments to help with upgrades to your home and for the assessment itself.  


Join the Northwood Democrats and Mark Stewartson from Loudon for a presentation on how you can save money and help our environment on October 16 at 7:00 pm at the Northwood Community Center, 135 Main St. in Northwood Narrows.  Everyone is welcome and there is no cost. Contact Lucy Edwards for more information at 312-6049 or [email protected]

Letter To The Editor


Here we are again, another crisis situation.  Ever wonder how we got to a place where the government was threatened, regularly, with shutdowns and threats not to pay our bills?  You do know that raising the debt ceiling is not authorizing new spending, but authorizing issuing Treasury bonds, the preferred investment across the global economy? You realize we need to pay what Congress - the ones who authorize spending, by the way, not the president - has already spent?  That part isnít being mentioned in the media you see and hear? 


Crises generate fear, and lots of emotion.  They cut off reasonable dialogue and discussion.  We do things that turn out to be dreadful mistakes.  Letís not make the error of letting our Social Security be cut in the name of solving a made-up crisis!  Letís not let our safety net programs be made hostages in a made-up standoff.  Itís OUR government. Demand that it be run for OUR benefit.


Thereís an election next year.  Are YOU making plans to vote?  Are YOU looking for candidates that will serve YOU? Or will you let the crisis-mongers win and then wonder where that truck that ran you over came from?

Cbna Senior Named Semifinalist In 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program


Officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation recently announced that Coe-Brown senior Erik C. Gunderson has been named a Semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program.  Gunderson joins approximately 16,000 other Semifinalists nationwide in this 59th annual Merit Scholarship Program. Gunderson, along with these other academically talented students, has an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,000 National Merit scholarships worth about $35 million that will be offered next spring.  To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements including submitting a detailed application and essay to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.  About 90% of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and more than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.  Congratulations to Erik C. Gunderson on this achievement.
