Gas prices still tumbling in New Hampshire

Town to try fake coyotes to scare off geese

MEREDITH (AP) – Residents in one Lake Winnipesaukee town are trying to scare off Canada geese that foul the grass near a sculpture walk - they’re adding some fake coyotes to the stone and brass artwork.

The decoys will be added at night to the sculpture walk in Meredith. The trick is to move them around in order to trick the birds.

Town Administrator Phil Warren Jr. says other choices to get rid of the geese are too expensive or drastic. He said he’s going to try a couple of the coyotes, which cost $70 each, after consulting with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Warren said they were effective in a Massachusetts community where he worked.

Blasting to slow traffic on New Hampshire’s I-93

WINDHAM (AP) – Motorists on Interstate 93 in southern New Hampshire should expect traffic delays due to a highway blasting operation.

Department of Transportation officials say both the northbound and southbound lanes may experience delays from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday.

Rolling roadblocks will be used to control traffic while workers blast a ledge adjacent to the I-93 interim southbound lane in Windham. Traffic could come to a standstill at times if workers need to remove blasted rock from the road.

The work is being done to accommodate the alignment of the northbound off-ramp as part of the interstate widening project.

The blasting depends on the weather and may be postponed.

Message boards along I-93 will provide notice of the beginning of blasting operations.
