I don’t trust the reformer to report my comments fairly and accurately. The would have to write an article about the bridge…get comments and explanations from all of the players, I don’t care if it is negative or positive…then let me respond in the next article.

The reformer would say because I am not a civil or bridge engineer…they would not accept any of my comments about the bridge condition for print because I don’t have a education.

It is probably a liability thing.

If any of them want to get into my good graces they would come to the Hinsdale’s selectman’s meeting tomorrow at 7pm and report on it.

President Obama would have to promise to help me fix the NHDOT. A good gesture would be to assign a prestigious engineering team to thoroughly re-inspect our bridges.

I would expect dirt digging to begin spring of 2014.…

I know for a fact the commons and reformer have been inundated with email comments about reporting about the guy at the Hinsdale bridge.

None by me…

I be a little late at getting to the bridge...I am on my way now.

One in ten US bridges is structurally deficient including the Brattleboro Hinsdale bridges. Meanwhile, Vermont is spending millions upon millions to erect worthless ridge line ornaments!

That's what happened with the 'Grannies' and constant trespassing and that's what could happen with mikey the bridge nut with his signs and terrorism
BTW mikey, the Reformer only said that as an excuse, of course they could print ewe'r dumbass comments as being one whackjob's opinion, but they didn't want to be accused of exploiting the mentally challenged 'freaks' like ewe

Absolutely incorrect...they are dangerously fragile and a collaspe is right around the corner.

Structurally deficient means it is safe!

I beleive the NHDOT frames it as "structurally obsolete"....like no breadown lane...but pefectly safe.

The NHDOT says the bridge will be safe for another 10 years!

I will be at the bridge from about 1 pm to 4 pm...

"OK... The bridges have proper names. Names for local people that had contributed to our nation.

The larger bridge (pictured) is the Anna Hunt Marsh bridge, one of only two bridges named for women on the Connecticut River, and one of three in NH. Hinsdale native Marsh was a social reformer and founder of the Brattleboro Retreat.

The smaller bridge is named for Charles Anderson Dana, the Hinsdale-born owner of the New York Sun as well as a prominent abolitionist..."

Today most new construction includes a bike lane and pedestrian walk, perhaps which is one reason they are so cost prohibited!Here is the sort of functional bridge I believe we should be aiming for!

Not sure what happened, I was not trying to give you a history lesson on arch bridges, but rather show you the replacement to an arch bridg between Bellows Falls VT and Walpole NH.

In this photograph you can see the bridge at the top of the photograph.

In no way do I feel I am being picked on…I am creating a significant public event at the Hinsdale Bridge based solely on my volition. I am a victim of nothing! I could stop all of this if I just went home and rode my bicycle.

In the last week somebody has been talking down one or two signs. I observe somebody replacing the taken down signs. I say something is up with this?

Sunday I go to work and I notice all the signs on both bridges were taken down…I think about the selectmen scheduling a meeting with me on Friday and all the signs disappearing. I wonder if the police and NHDOT are engineering a event for the Monday selectmen meeting.

I am intentionally putting up my schedule for the police and selectmen…signaling when I am going to be on site.

So I am into more than a half hour into constructing my site…I am doing everything different than I have in the past. I put my huge white cross up. It was like I was expecting the police and the NHDOT. I put out three signs right by the break in the guard rails. I want the police to see that my site is radically different than in the past. The signs are:

1)“New Hampshire Is Crazy”.

2)“New Ham(p)shire Is Sabotaging Hinsdale, NH”

3)“Infrastructure Project.”

So I getting my first sign up on my car trunk. It is “Dangerous Bridge“. I kinda taking my time and playing with the driving public. I spend more time acting to the public than doing my work. I raise my shovel in one hand high in the air for effect. I normally get my stuff displayed immediately…but today I am screwing around talking my time. i got my halo on. I got my four doors wide open and blasting my music from the radio.

Then I see the big Hinsdale police SUV coming from Hinsdale…he is passing me. The chief is in it. I give him a friendly wave and he waves back. I surmise he surveilling me. He goes across the bridge. In less than five minutes, I catch a flashy orange NHDOT truck exiting the Bratt bridge towards me heading to down town. There is a driver and a passenger in the truck, at least. I think that is kinda cool…so I put on a big smile. I am getting good at putting on a show time smile. I catch the NHDOT passenger staring at me and he give me a smirky smile. My wheels in my head are beginning to spin up cause I know this is abnormal. The NHDOT truck definitely didn’t go by me while I was on site…he’s been in Brattleboro watching or surveilling me since before I arrived on site. Probably had a camera and binoculars. As I am thinking, I spy the Hinsdale white police cruiser approaching me just off the bridge heading back to Hinsdale. He was tailing the NHDOT truck…the first vehicle right behind him. I give the chief another nice wave and he waves right back.

He and the NHDOT officials expected I would place the “Build New Bridge” sign right back up….ten of them.

They were engineering or setting up a negative event for tonight…or were trying to arrest me or sight me for the show tonight.

When heading for the bridge, about a half mile on route 119 after my turn off Monument Road, I observed a NH state vehicle parked on the side of the road. About 12:45. The driver was at the steering wheel. It wasn’t a NHDOT car I thinking. I think it is a NHDES official car. What is he doing there? It could have been another NH agency car.

I think this car was the warning car for the NHDOT folks and the Hinsdale police…the “Mike” is heading to the bridge warning.
