Identification of the Mystery Item

The History Corner
 
Build a better mouse trap and the world will beat a path to your door!” While this statement was supposed to have been made by Ralph Waldo Emerson (who, you may recall, spent the night in New Hampton in the summer of 1875), what he actually said was, "If a man has good corn or wood, or boards, or pigs, to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles or church organs, than anybody else, you will find a broad hard-beaten road to his house, though it be in the woods."
 
The item in the photos last month was a humane mousetrap designed not to do any harm. When the mouse attempted to take the bait (from the end of the hook), the spring-loaded lid snapped shut. The jar sat on its flat side - and the three air holes in the glass (as well as holes in the lid), allowed the mouse to breathe. It was made by the Otto Kampfe Co. in Newark, NJ. - and recently one sold on eBay for over $100. Keep on the lookout... and, who knows?

While the State of Emergency remains in effect we will continue to direct glass and plastic into the compactor with all household trash.   We continue to limit the number of vehicles at the compactor to a maximum of 2.  The “mall” will remain closed for the duration of the State of Emergency.

Your understanding and cooperation is greatly appreciated.

 

BEWARE - Scams Related to Covid-19

Criminals are using concerns about the coronavirus for email and phone scams
 
Avoiding Scams, 3/26/20 - from the NH Dept. of Justice, Office of the Attorney General.
  1. If you are looking for news or information on the coronavirus, visit known reputable websites like the N.H. Dept. of Health & Human Service, U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) or the World Health Organization.
  2. Social Media companies are cracking down on ads spreading coronavirus conspiracies and fake cures, some ads may make it past their review process. Remember, it’s best to seek information on the disease from official sources like those mentioned above.
  3. Be on the lookout for phishing emails, which may appear to come from a trusted source. Remember, you can look at the sender’s details – specifically the part of the email address after the ‘@’ symbol – in the ‘From’ line to see if it looks legitimate.
  4. Be wary of emails or phone calls offering unexpected or unprompted information. Also be aware of emails from unfamiliar sources that contain links or attachments. Do not click on these links, as they could be embedded with malware.
  5. Remember, the no Governmental agency or reputable business will call you and ask for your Social Security number, Bank details, PIN numbers / passwords or other personally identifiable information.
Beware of emails advertising:
  • Cures – there is no cure or preventative vaccine.
  • Stock opportunities for companies about to announce a cure.
  • Programs to purchase early disbursement of Federal stimulus money.
  • Free phones for people quarantined at home
  • Charities and Crowdfunding… Don’t let anyone to rush you into making a donation, especially if they want the donation in cash, gift cards or wire transfer.

Police Department - Limited Access

We continue to follow the recommendations and guidelines provided by Federal, State and Local Health officials, taking the appropriate steps to help curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community; therefore, effective immediately, the Police Department will begin limiting access to the Public Lobby of the Police Department.  Individuals needing copies of Police Reports, Pistol Permit Renewals, or initial Applications should call the department at 603-744-5423 to speak with an Officer or the Administrative Assistant.

New Hampton Police Department will have officers available to respond to emergency calls, crimes in progress, and preventative patrol within the community.  Department personnel remain available to serve you by phone, mail, or by appointment.  The 24-hour connection to the Dispatch Center is available by using the Call Box located to the right of the department’s front door.

We understand these precautions are not ideal, but we feel they are necessary to protect the public, our employees, and help our agency provide the Town with the best possible police service to keep our community safe and healthy. 

 
Road Surface Management System Report Results

In March the town voted to approve appropriations to perform an inventory and evaluation of paved town roads using a road surface management software (RSMS) to develop a detailed management plan with recommendations for future improvements.  The Lakes Region Planning Commission performed this assessment and created this plan in partnership with the NH Department of Transportation and UNH Technology Transfer Center. Inventory and Assessments were entered into the RSMS software for analysis, prioritization, and generation of repair strategies. Repair strategies and a 10-year budget plan have been prepared in partnership with the town and presented within this report.  This management plan will be used as a tool by the Highway Dept.
