My name is Robert Jobin I'm 23, years old & I was 19 when I survived the brutal torture and sexual assault I endured at HCDOC. To this day the images blur in my head, the faces, the screams.. Night after night I laid there wondering when would it end? Or will I actually die here? I was in a bad mental state at this point and time the Doctor's said it was a drug induced psychosis, and before any of the actual violence occurred I actually believed in my mental state that everyone wanted to kill me anyways... Now only imagine my mental state when they actually tried.. Honestly I've read the stories about the murders in Valley St. Or the lawsuits all the stories are the same and they involve the chair... Inmates make jokes about the chair all the time until they survived it... Then it's not so funny... Basically it's a modern torture device they shackle your ankles, and waist, cuff your wrists tighter and tighter as the hours wear on and threaten you while doing so saying the more you scream the tighter they'll tie the restraints... They'll tie it tighter no matter what but making sure you don't scream will probably keep you alive... I truly don't believe they put anyone in that position in hopes that they'll pull through... I think they put you there to die. The first time I "rode" the chair was the worst not knowing what to expect, I screamed and screamed it hurt so much cutting the circulation to all the extremities of your body at once is painful the first time was easy I just had to be quiet while they tied me in tighter and after a while of pointless screams and cries for help I just sat there quiet as could possibly be maybe a little sob here or there all while taking blows from the correctional officers. I was placed there because of a suicide attempt after already having my head slammed off of the ground for attempting to jump head first off of the top tier... Yeah the first time was easy the second time they pepper sprayed me head to toe naked and threw me in this rubber room, and left me there writhing and screeching in pain the officer's were joking about setting me on fire and I believe they really had... His name was Sgt. Fitzpatrick bald skin head looking mf as of a year ago I believe they promoted him to LT. This man tortured me and sexually assaulted me for no more than 15 hours no less than 12 hours STRAIGHT. They are supposed to rinse you off after pepper spraying you immediately! This man left me to burn and then convinced me I was in hell (also poor mental state) but along with this story... They all threatened to kill me multiple times C.O's Gonzales (now Sgt.), Chase, and big Antillus, Batsin... I remembered their names because of their hands in it... But I didn't fear for my life until Fitzpatrick got his hands on me... After being left in the rubber room to burn for what felt like a lifetime I was put back in the chair as this point I'm laughing and moaning like I was being pleasured... I was beyond that point of pain where I really wanted to stick it to them.. I don't remember much but I do remember CO Lapierre coming to get me out he was there at the end of it all to help me out of the restraints to the shower to rinse off.. The only shower I took without being made a spectacle of by the Fosher's and any correctional officer around... I block out alot of the painful memories but I do remember this much I've never felt painful relief in my life and when they took those restraints off of me the blood flow returning hurt... It was actually excruciating pain. After this time in the chair I went to the hospital to get my hand treated. Broken bones fixed in surgery my mutilated hand I still to this day don't know  which treatments I endured in the hospital or exactly what diagnoses I recieved... All I know is after not being fed for days or weeks it felt like the HOSPITAL felt like vacation I felt helped and safe as long as the nurses didn't leave me in the room alone with the correctional officers... I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THAT HELLHOLE. I don't have much more to say... But it was torture and alot of the details I've to this day blocked out. I was left in a hole for months and was in line to die... They just weren't quick enough for my number.

I do know some profitable farmers here in northern New England. But in every case, it's almost a multi-generational deal where their family started the farm generations ago. The cost of buying a farm generally offsets any ability to generate positive cash flow.

In both cases I cited below, the people paid cash for their farms, which can help... You're not sweating the monthly mortgage payments, but you still have a lot of expenses. Taxes, Insurance, Energy, Seed, Equipment, etc.

God Bless Them! Farming is hard work. I worked on a 600 acre dairy farm in high school. Long enough to know I didn't want to work 7 days a week for the rest of my life. America and NH needs more independent farmers.

It depends on where you are and what kind of farming you are doing. If you are doing a large-scale dairy or apple farm, you can get by doing that full-time, though the profit margins are narrow. Vegetable farming is really profitable only in prime locations along the Connecticut River. A few of the larger farms also do CSAs, U-Pick, weddings, and the like to make ends meet. But most farms are part-time operations.

There are lots and lots of small farmers here in NH.

Not many of them, that I am aware of, are cash positive.

They generally have a family member or two that work a full time job in addition to working the farm.

Buying a farm can be expensive. Two recently (in the last two years) sold in our town. Both were around $400,000 and needed lots of work.

The people who now live on these farms LOVE LIVING IN NH.

It's awesome here. I pinch myself everyday.

I'd strongly encourage you to visit NH before selecting a community.

Every town is different with it's own pluses and minuses.

I am a big fan of Carroll County towns, but for many, it's too remote.

If you're looking for a larger city, Manchester, Concord or Portsmouth can be attractive.

You're going to love Meredith. It's an awesome town.

Quality housing on the north side of Winnipesaukee can prove to be challenging some times.

Shoot me a PM and I'll gladly give you the inside scoop on all the lakes region has to offer.

Welcome to NH.

As a refugee from Maine to NH, I can tell you be careful what you wish for.

These unorganized townships tend to fall under the LURC rules. Land Use Regulatory Commission.

A bunch of unelected bureaucrats who will put a windfarm on your property if that's what they deem best.

Maine sucks, but if you want to give 1/8 of your money in income and sales taxes to the state, be my guest.
