When the SAU 7 Board meets next Tuesday in Pittsburg it will make a decision as to whether to hire the one remaining candidate for SAU 7 Superintendent or to put off the search for another year.
When the Chronicle last reported on the process to find the replacement for retiring SAU 7 Superintendent Bob Mills, there were two candidates who were in consideration. This week it was learned that the selection has been trimmed to one person, Berlin’s Hillside School Principal Julie King.
Pittsburg Principal Heather Zybas, who is resigning her position at New Hampshire’s northernmost school, has all good things to say about her experience at Pittsburg School. She said that she has decided to leave the school so she can continue her career, spend time with her family this summer and step aside to make what she says is “a good school” into a “great school.” When contacted by the Chronicle this week, Zybas said that “I really think Pittsburg needs a stronger change agent then I am able to offer at this time.”

This sweeping view of Colebrook over 100 years ago is from a glass negative taken by onetime local photographer Clarence Gates. Just about in the middle of the image, shot from Monadnock Mountain, can be seen Colebrook’s esker, a natural ridge that local historian Bud Hulse says is a remnant from the mile-high glacier that was once above Colebrook during the Ice Age.

An early picture of Colebrook that was brought to our attention highlights an interesting and little-known element of the town’s landscape. The photo, likely taken in the early 1900s from Monadnock Mountain, indicates a notable ridge of land between Bridge and Colby streets. This ridge is an esker, a mass of glacial sediment. Colebrook historian Bud Hulse, who supplied us with the photo, identified it as a ridge of sand and gravel deposited by a stream that flowed within the mile-high glacier that was once above Colebrook during the Ice Age.
A bus trip scheduled for next Tuesday, April 14, to travel to a N.H. Senate bill hearing in Concord has been canceled.
According to State Rep. Larry Rappaport of Colebrook, the hearing on Senate Bill 30, a bill to establish a Tax Financing District which was intended to assist in the redevelopment of the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel, was canceled because an amendment was in the works to add proper wording to establish a state bond for the project, as well.
