Miss Bicknell presided over the one-room schoolhouse I attended in South Royalton, Vt. "The Earth is filled with water," she announced one day.
My brother John, who hadn't learned diplomacy, said, "Miss Bicknell, the Earth is filled with lava." Miss Bicknell cast a cold, icy stare at my brother and said, "Johnny, you can dig a hole anywhere in Windsor County and you will get water, but you won't find lava anywhere."
There is an amazing man in New Hampshire who is known in Concord as "Mr. Geothermal." A former state legislator and nuclear engineer, the Honorable Sam Cataldo has tirelessly promoted a dream of electricity production though geothermal energy.
