I've decided util the state does something pro-active I don't wan't to support schools with my property tax/ retirement dollars. there are still places in this country you live very well. on < $50,000 or less on a year, sometimes local economies are a severe drawback, but retirement dollars are largely exempt from those considerations.
I think the high school has done a pretty good job so far. I have a blind child coming to them in the fall the first for them and they have hired a visually impaired specialist for her, purchased and already have her special computer needs, have additional aids and just waiting on my registration of her next week to get her books ordered in braille. She's going to the school i graduated from and i'd say they are much better than here in FL. It took FL a full year to get the books for her so she went through a full school year of somebody actually brailling pages from the books for her. Keep in mind, there's a federal prison set to open in Berlin around 2010 so the housing market but go up a little bit even if it's short lived because of people coming in from out of state for the jobs so that's something to consider if buying now and wanting to sell later. My sister has 3 acres of open land along the river in Milan and her realtor said to try to hold onto it for another 3 years if she can then sell.

We bought a Log cabin up by Ossipee last year thinking we could unload the house down here a lot sooner than seems to be happening. The real estate situation down here is a real mess. I really dont want to be here much longer. I lived in N.H. 47 years and down here 7, long enough to know this isn't where i belong.

Yeah i know. We just put ours up for sale a few months ago and so far nothing. My daughter and I are heading up this weekend and my husband will have to come back for a while. I lived in NH 18 years and here in FL 14 years and i've wanted to go back for a while but i had to get a few things squared away before i could go back. It's my husbands first time in the snow so it should be interesting. He was born in NY but has been in FL since he was 6 years old.

One plus years later do you still feel the same way??

IMHO - Most of the North Country, while blessed with spectacular scenery, is unblessed with industrial jobs. This is a good area to bring your own job such as a net based business you can operate from a remote location.

I enjoyed looking at these posts. I'm from NJ, but interested in Berlin, NH because my grandfather, Jacob C. Herre, was pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Berlin many years ago, maybe around 1938 or in the 1940's. His wife's maiden name was Thea Lund. My husband & I visited Berlin quite a few years ago & took pictures of the church.

You sure of that? I grew up there and left as soon as I could. My family still lives there and I constantly hear of drugs, crime and murders lately. Seriously. It is going DOWN HILL and if I could get my family out of there, I would!
