It’s The Fabulous Fifties On LRPA After Dark
During The Month Of July
1950’s “Panic In The Streets”
Throughout July, Lakes Region Public Access Television will
feature four films from the fabulous 50’s, a decade known in
cinema, for many things, including the end of the Hollywood
musical; the “Red Scare” and blacklisting of screenwriters; film
noir standouts; and Cold War/atomic panic. Join us each Friday
and Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. as we salute this remarkable
decade. This weekend (July 20 & 21) we’re proud to present the
1950’s action-packed and seldom-seen film noir Panic in the
Streets, directed by Elia Kazan and starring Richard Widmark,
Jack Palance (in his film debut), Barbara Bel Geddes and Zero
Mostel. “Panic in the Streets” was shot entirely on location in
gritty New Orleans, giving the movie a gripping sense of realism
that other film noirs, often filmed on a set, do not possess.
Kazan, having already won the Oscar for “On the Waterfront,”
made the most of his colorful location. The film’s scenes
include abandoned lots, train tracks, back alleys, dive bars,
flophouses and the like. The director also favored the use of
locals, rather than Hollywood extras, to add authenticity to
each scene. The film won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay,
was chosen by the National Board of Review as one of the Top Ten
Films of 1950 and garnered Kazan the International Award at the
Venice Film Festival that same year. In its review, The New York
Times noted that “… Elia Kazan has directed [it] with a keen
sense of appreciation for violence and suspense.” If you’re a
lover of classic movies and of suspenseful noir, you owe it to
yourself to see “Panic in the Streets.” Garb your popcorn and
meet after dark for this thriller from our cinematic past.
Mark your calendars for all of July’s Fabulous Fifties Films:

Chris Roundy Announces For District 17 State Senate Seat
My name is Chris Roundy; I grew up in Barrington and have
been living in Nottingham for the past 7 years with my wife
Jaime and daughter Sydney. I went to college at UNH and
law school in Boston; and for the past 14 years have maintained
my law practice in Dover. I have also been on the board of
Community Partners for the past 10 years. I help oversee
their $30 million budget to provide mental health and
developmental disabilities service for all of Strafford County.
A little more background on me: I am an unrepentant ski bum at
heart, a triathlete, and an Eagle Scout.
am running for office to destroy my law practice. That
practice specializes in helping out people who have fallen
through the holes in the system, whether that system is set-up
by the State, the Feds, or private insurance companies.
Currently I can help one person at a time, send me to Concord so
we can help ALL our neighbors.
need to do more to address the opioid crisis and the holes in
our mental health care system. There shouldn’t be a daily
average of 45 people statewide waiting for beds at the state
mental hospital. Our most sick should not be sitting in the same
facility for “treatment” as felons. We still aren’t doing
enough to treat the people in our community with mental health
issues. There has not been a rate increase for the
provision of mental health services since 2006. Too often
substance abuse goes hand in hand with mental health and for
that “dual diagnosis” population we are not going to get
anywhere unless we effectively treat both problems at the same
time. We need appropriate funding and service provision
to make sure that our healthcare system as a whole provides
quality care for all, while fighting the opioid crisis.
need to protect our public schools, not cut their funding and
raise our property taxes. Public education offers people a
pathway towards a better future and the fulfillment of the
American Dream. Public funding of private/religious
education is not the Granite State way.
need to encourage younger workers to come into the state, and
invest in our infrastructure. These two items more than
any tax cut will encourage and enable small businesses to move
into our state and grow. We can start by not
disenfranchising those who have made a partial investment in our
state by coming here to pursue their secondary education.
can do better together. Send me to Concord to be YOUR guy.
I have been my client’s guy dealing with the feds, the state,
and the insurance companies for 15 years. Please allow me
the honor of being your guy in concord. My name is Chris
Roundy and I am asking for your support and your vote in

In Memory Of Meg McGoldrick
Chesley Memorial Trustees and staff worked with Meg for several
years as she improved our front door garden. She and her
husband, Ted, spent many hours in the front garden and advising
us on our children’s gardens. Meg kept Honey Bees at her home
and loved her Northwood home and its beautiful gardens. We
recently learned about Mason Bees and thought they would be
wonderful addition to our library yard in memory of our dear
Library friend, Meg McGoldrick. The Mason Bee is known as a
gentle bee that lives a solitary life. The bees are native to
our area and are known for their cohabitation with humans. They
reside in tubes of wood and pack their eggs in a special
nutritious mud that sustains their young. The Mason Bee is
considered the hardest working bee as they simply pollinate and
do not produce honey or a hive. Thus, we will have more food
with their assistance with no fear of stinging. We have added a
book to our Library on the Mason Bees (Mason Bee Revolution: How
the Hardest Working Bee Can Save the World One Backyard at a
Time by Dave Hunter and Jill Lightner) should you wish to
consider them for your home as well.
