Return of the Lynx, Hi-tech Ice Fishing, Featured in NH Wildlife Journal

CONCORD, N.H. - Exciting trail-cam images of four lynx  kittens in Pittsburg, N.H., last year raised the intriguing possibility that  Canada lynx, after being absent from New Hampshire for more than 50 years, may  be poised to once again be part of the North Country landscape. Read about this  elusive predator and what biologists are doing to document its presence, in the  current issue (January/February 2013) of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal, the  state's only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and outdoor  recreation.

Also in this issue, check out the new hi-tech tools of  the modern ice-fishing revolution.  As  they say, it's not your grandfather's ice fishing gear! While traditional  tip-ups and bobhouses still have a devoted following, new electronics and  portable shelters are changing the ice fishing experience.

Another feature highlights how citizens in Bath, N.H.,  took action for wildlife by creating their own Natural Resources Inventory.  After documenting the town's wetlands, soil, wildlife habitat - even  discovering healthy wild brook trout in twelve high-elevation streams -  townspeople have a renewed appreciation for what makes a healthy environment  and how the community can work together to protect it.

The January/February issue also profiles the snowshoe  hare, one of New Hampshire's wildlife species best adapted for winter. Readers  can take an armchair cruise along snowmobile trails in Grafton County, learn  about ice safety, and enjoy the adventures of Fish and Game Conservation  Officers in Warden's Watch.

When and why to add a chimney liner

 

Al HeavensWhen and why to add a chimney liner The Philadelphia Inquirer (MCT)

Q: We just had our chimney cleaned and the gentleman is advising us to have our chimney lined, for which he gave us an estimate of $2,800. How in the world does one know when a chimney needs a liner? Our house is 40 years old. Is that an indicator that it does? He took a flashlight and showed me a pile of whitish material in the back of the furnace pipe that was about 2 ½ inches high. What do you think? A: From what I understand, age of the house may only be one factor in determining whether your chimney needs a liner. The experts recommend regular cleaning of chimneys for a good reason. When you delay maintenance, creosote from burning wood eventually builds up enough to create a fire hazard. The same thing happens when residue from whatever you heat your house with " probably heating oil " builds up as well. Many years ago, shortly before Christmas, the pipe connecting the coal-converted- to-oil furnace to the chimney of my old house came unconnected, and there was a pile of a whitish material at the base. I don't know for sure, but the pipe appeared to be plastered to the base of the chimney, and the whitish material was probably a mixture of plaster and efflorescence " residue created when water in porous material evaporates, leaving salt as a white, fluffy deposit behind. The "gentleman" should have identified the material and explained what it meant, in any event. I looked up my chimney and saw no blockage. Later, a chimney contractor checked it out and found that the original terra-cotta masonry lining, by then a century old, was fine and all the brick mortar was intact. I was fortunate, because a few years before, the owners of the adjacent twin wanted to open up the chimney that vented a coal-burning stove and we shared the $1,000 cost of lining and repairing the mortar. Most chimney contractors recommend a stainless-steel liner that slips in from the top of the chimney all the way down. They are recommended for chimneys that are used to vent wood-burning stoves because creosote can quickly mess up other metals. First, you need more than just one estimate, and here's hoping that you find someone who will offer you a more complete and accurate explanation of your problem, and all the available alternatives " information readily accessible online. The liner that is used will have to properly fit the inside of the chimney. Now, to the cost. Mark Wade, a Philadelphia real estate agent who deals with a lot of people who buy places with fireplaces in need of working chimneys, and who has done some renovation projects himself, said he's never heard less than $4,000. Again, you need a complete and written explanation of the problem and more than one estimate before you consider having the work done.
