Northern Pass Opposition

To the Editor:

I want to acknowledge the people who volunteered to make the Northern Pass Opposition tables happen this past Labor Day Weekend. The Littleton Co-op allowed us to set up for both Friday and Saturday, and the interest from both local and out-of-state people was overwhelming. All who came to the tables expressed the desire to not have this project take place as nobody wants to see these towers anywhere in this state. For example, people from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Quebec, and others & as far away as Alabama spoke of coming here because of the beauty and to get away from what they see in their own home state or province: towers!

The Orange Balloon of Truth was up for two days at a height of 135 feet to simulate a tower height and base. The balloon was placed on the property of Jere Eames and his son Jack, and many many people commented on how powerful a statement it makes. Rick Samson of Colebrook helped bring and put up the balloon, and volunteers from Franconia, Easton, Sugar Hill, and Littleton manned the information tables for those two days.

It's time to say no to the Northern Pass Transmission Line. Speak up now and help stop the towers. Contact our governor, the White Mountain National Forest and the US Dept. of Energy and voice your opposition to the Northern Pass Project. To contact Governor Lynch: 603.271.6241; Tom Wagner, Forest Supervisor c/o Northern Pass Project, Contact White Mountain National Forest, 71 White Mountain Drive, Campton, N.H. 03223 603.536.6241; enter comments on the Department of Energy Environmental Impact Study,
