Northwood Crankpullers Radar Run, Sunday, January 30, 2010, at Lake
Shore Farm, Northwood, NH.
This event is for fun.
Prizes will consist of bragging rights and a nice hat. Many
people use this lake for other purposes and they always have the
right-of-way. Use extreme caution, respect others, wear a
helmet and most of all have fun.
As usual our concession trailer
will be there with food and drinks. Bring the family and enjoy the
day with us.

Dear Residents of Northwood:
It seems we need to clarify the
word “victim.” The reason being, our school board feels they
are victims of the teacher’s union and teachers of Northwood school
The definition of victim is:
• One that is
subjected to oppression, hardship or mistreatment. Or,
or something that is adversely affected by an action or
I think it is fair to say the only ones who will be
“VICTIMS” of this crazy pay raise and everything else
these relentless teachers want, will be the Northwood
people. Our taxes have risen up to a point where people
in this town can barely pay their taxes and houses are
being foreclosed upon every day.
The school board wants us to feel bad for them? NO.
Stand up to the teachers, defend your town’s people, and do the job
you were elected to do. Keep your promises and just say “NO!”
Will this really be that hard to do? Because if you want, I
will come in and teach you how it is done. If the teachers in this
town don’t like it, then they can LEAVE.
Trust me, your teaching
skills here won’t be missed and maybe we will just have to hire new
teachers who may just turn out to be better because they have a job.
Statics show the school is not the best and I am more then sure
Coe-Brown would love to have an input on new teachers so they have
the students they want there when the kids leave the
elementary/middle school and would be more then happy to promote new
teachers for us.
If there is any teacher at this school that
would like to hear me say this to you directly, give me a call. Your
selfishness, greed, lack of caring, and only looking out for your
own back needs to stop.
If you want to keep some kind of rapport
with the parents in the school system, I strongly suggest you back
down, because when these parents are losing their homes, you are the
ones who will have to face their children every day. See if you can
look at yourself in the mirror with that one. Have a good day.
Problem With Northwood’s Town And School Budgets
issue that faces our country is the unsustainable benefit packages,
unfunded liabilities, at every level of government and unions,
including the teacher’s union. The shrinking private sector
simply will be unable to continue funding 85% of the cost of current
public benefits; this far exceeds benefits offered in the private
sector in areas of healthcare, paid time off, retirement and
disability. The benefits of public sector jobs must realign
itself with the private sector.
Reviewing both the proposed town
and school budgets has led me to conclude that each department head
has put forth a fiscally responsible budget and has made cuts and
adjustments where appropriate.
I will be voting NO on both
Northwood’s Town budget and Northwood School’s budget until such
time more equitable benefit packages to the tax payer are
renegotiated for both the town as well as the school. The larger
picture of the future must be taken into account while negotiating
or we will find ourselves in a town with unaffordable taxes, a
beautiful school, with a dwindling student population which will
eventually force a reduction in staff.
employs our treasured educators, policeman and firefighters; we
respect them; our tax dollars provide for their livelihoods and
retirements. But, for the good of our entire nation, it is
time for America to curtail the unions’ immense power and demand
that the public sector join the realm of fiscal reality rather than
entitlement and a reliance on endless taxpayer revenue.
government and free market capitalism made this country great and is
the way back to future prosperity.

CVHS’s Champion Fund. Founded in 2008, the fund was named
after a happy, sociable nine-month-old German Shepherd cross who
came to the shelter in December 2007 with a deformed leg. His
leg had been broken at some point in his young life but was never
repaired. Through the generosity of donors, Champion’s costly
surgery was a success, and today he enjoys long walks with his new
In 2010, the Champion Fund covered the cost of surgical
medical procedures for 43 shelter animals, giving them a second
chance at life.
We hope you will join us in making this
event a success for the animals. For more information go to

My parents, James and Holly of Nottingham recently experienced a
tragic house fire. They have a 16 year old son and a 13 year
old daughter, who is autistic. During the fire, the children lost
most of their possessions, clothing, recent Christmas presents etc.
I am sending this letter in hopes that any local businesses or
residents would be willing to make donations of any size. They would
be greatly appreciated and needed.
The fire happened just as
their oldest son was coming home from active duty in Iraq for a two
week visit and now he has no place to visit his parents.
send any donations to Nick Currier, 155 Upper Deerfield Rd.,
Northwood NH, 03261.
Thank you for your consideration in running
this letter and to anyone willing to help my parents.
