This just appeared in my in-box.
Supposedly posted on the ACS Facebook page.

I recognize the stilted style.

Well this is ACS.

Seems to be a slightly different tone to what was being implied yesterday.

Testing INDIVIDUAL people! Tell me more. Did they draw blood and do a blood test?

So who were these INDIVIDUALS?

Not my kids … for sure.

NO Carbon Monoxide detected in the building.

Very strange.

Gets curiouser and curiouser.

I am happy that the teachers got a day off to catch up on their Christmas shopping. They deserve it.

P.S. School, alas, is back to normal Friday.
I wanted the kids to have 2 extra days of Christmas vacation. Damn

Alton Central School (ACS), N. H., Carbon Monoxide ‘Alarm’ On December 18, 2013. Just Snow Blocking Furnace Vents?

And latest.
And funny that it mentions the vents.


I just talked to an expert.

So, lets think about this.

The most likely, even only possible, source for the supposed Carbon Monoxide has to be the school heating furnaces. I gather there are two.

Of course they would have been working overtime these last couple of days.

We have also had a TON of snow.

Did anybody check if the furnace vents have been blocked by the snow? That alone would indicate a sudden elevation in CO levels.

Did an alarm go off today? What prompted the fire department to come to the school to check.

Why weren’t the kids released EARLIER if elevated levels of CO were detected?

I know that some mothers are asking that.

Good question. Why wait to tell the parents of the CO levels after the kids are released. When were the levels detected?

Without mixing metaphors the school is playing with FIRE. I hope they know what they are doing.

The timing just seems incongruous. Is it just a matter of shoveling the snow around the vents?

I am sure others will be asking questions. I sure hope so.


ALERT: Alton Central School (ACS), N. H. Closed On Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013, Due To Dangerous Levels Of Carbon Monoxide.

Also refer to this follow on post.
Could just be a vent blocked by snow!

And latest!


The phones have been going crazy.

ACS will be closed Thursday, December 19, 2013
because they suddenly discovered ‘dangerous’ levels of Carbon Monoxide.

The school, I just heard from the kids, was checked, today,
by the Fire Department.

So what does THIS mean?

Early Christmas — and I am ALL in favor of that.

It has been crazy and it would be nice to have the kids home for an additional few days.

CO-decal

I just checked the May Air Quality report. There were some spikes but everything was OK.

I am a professional cynic. The timing of this bothers me.

So are we again in for a January to March battle over ACS renovation — this time with CO to the fore?

Yet again it has hit close to home.

I will not divulge too much right now …

Yet again this is not restricted to peer-to-peer bullying between kids.

But meticulous records are being kept and there is much happening yet again.

After months of apathy, as I had already mentioned, there has been a sudden spurt of interest
at the ACS School Board and bullying.

Here are the latest stats.

The very impressive, well appointed 'Woodside Building' at the Taylor Community in Laconia. Both my presentations were in this building. Very salubrious.

They must have liked my November 4, 2013 presentation on ‘Comet ISON’.

They asked me back. This time to address a monthly Men’s Breakfast Meeting.

This time I spoke about comets in general, using ISON as an example — now that dear ISON is toast.

It was fun. They seemed to like it. Very interactive. Lost of question. Breakfast was better than in most motels!

I had to be there at 8 am! That was a stretch.

When I used to do presentation for pay, I refused to talk before 9:30 am.

I used to say that it was indecent to talk about ‘IBM Networking’ before 9:30 am.

IF they insisted, and it was for a breakfast ‘whatever’, I charged an arm-and-a-leg more.

I am going back again next year.

Since Rotary is famous for their auctions to raise money for the Club, I gave them a copy of one of my books to auction. It went for $55! Wow. It is for the Club and everybody knows that. But, I was so happy.

I used to be in Rotary. I was even the Sergeant-At-Arms.

I offered my ‘Comet ISON‘ presentations to a number of N.H. Rotary Clubs BUT Portsmouth was the only one that took me up. I am glad.

What a club. Close to 150 members. I thought Laconia was big at 100.

Very, very nice people, but that tends to invariably be the case with Rotary.

Even made me a bit nostalgic. I had fun at Rotary. Being Sergeant-At-Arms suited me.

The meeting was at the very salubrious ‘Portsmouth Country Club‘. What a great lunch.

I had a great time. Lovely people. I think they liked the presentation. I only had 20 minutes, so I had to keep it pithy.

I have offered to come back and do a different presentation next year.

This was fun. Deanna went with me, as she does to most presentations I do. She really liked it.

That they auctioned off one of my books for $55 was a blast. That was a compliment. I love Rotary auctions. I used to be a bidding addict. It is for a good cause so that makes it rewarding.

I just LOVED that they read out LOUD the famous Rotary 4-Way TEST.

I am a great believer in the 4-Way Test. Though no longer a Rotarian, I think, I still live by the 4-Way Test.

Thank YOU, Portsmouth Rotary. That was fun. Can’t wait to come back and do another presentation.
