Letter

 

Dear Northwood Friends and Neighbors:

Well, the “Bean Hole Bash” has come and gone. It was a great success. On behalf of Greg Bane, committee president, myself, and the rest of the committee, we want to thank all those who unselfishly gave time and effort to make the event a resounding success. There were so many that made the event work that I can’t name without missing some. But the “Bash” went well, even with the rain and wind that arrived at dinner time, and we would like to thank you very much for your support.

 

Last year some of the profits went to two scholarships of $500.00 for a male and female graduating student of Coe Brown Northwood Academy.  We are looking forward to this year’s donation.  Our goal is to pass it back to the town. 

 

So, on behalf of Greg and myself and the rest of the committee I want to thank you all for a job well done. We look forward to doing it again next year. Keep July 26th and 27th, 2019 open for the annual “Bean Hole Bash.”

 

Mike Smith

Committee Vice President

 


 

This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:

1937’s “A Star Is Born”

 

Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (August 24 & 25)  for our “LRPA After Dark” feature, 1937’s timeless melodrama  “A Star is Born,” starring Janet Gaynor and Frederic March. 

 

“A Star is Born” is the definitive movie about Hollywood fame, fortune, and its human toll: the juxtaposition of the talented, young actress’s rising career with the downward spiral of her husband, an aging, self-destructive, alcoholic matinee idol. This movie is so fantastic that it’s been remade twice, once in 1954, with Judy Garland and James Mason, and again, infamously, in 1976, with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. It’s even in the works again, this time with Bradley Cooper in the starring role! For many fans and critics, however, the original 1937 version is still the best. Filmed in wonderful early Technicolor and directed by William Wellman, it was nominated for six Academy Awards, winning for Best Original Story, and garnering a special award for the film’s outstanding color photography. Critic Leonard Matlin wrote, “Two remakes haven’t dimmed the glow of this drama … March and Gaynor are at their best.” Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this vintage classic! 

 


 

Northwood Church Hosts “Drive-In” Movie Night

 

The Northwood Advent Christian Church is hosting another community event with a Drive-in Movie Night Saturday, August 25, held rain or shine at the church, 113 School St. Northwood. This event is free. It will start at dusk about 7:30pm. The feature movie “I Can Only Imagine” was in movie theatres this spring! I Can Only Imagine is the smash hit song that brings ultimate hope to so many. Now, Bart Millard’s inspiring real-life story behind the beloved MercyMe song will encourage people in a whole new way. The movie I Can Only Imagine is gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness, beautifully illustrating that no one is ever too far from God’s love—or from an eternal home in Heaven. This touching story of hope and redemption stars J. Michael Finley, Dennis Quaid, Madeline Carroll, Priscilla Shirer, Cloris Leachman, and country singer Trace Adkins. Rated PG.

 

Drive up and watch from your car or bring a blanket or lawn chair and sit on the lawn.  Popcorn, refreshments and drinks will be available. If threat of rain the showing will be indoors, same time.

 

Join us for this free public showing under license by Outreach Films on Saturday, August 25 where you are always welcome! And join us every Sunday at 10 am for worship.

 


 

 

 

Thank you so much Northwood Garden Club for your hard work in beautifying our school!  What a great way to start 18-19!!

 


 

Letter To The Editor

 

Today, Thursday. Aug. 16, over 300 newspapers across the nation featured editorials declaring that they - the free press - are not the enemies of the people, as current President Trump has said they are on numerous occasions.

 

They are, of course, correct. Rather then being the enemies of the people, they are the informers of the people. Informing us so that we may know the facts and the truth. And make informed decision as citizens and, for some of us, as voters.

 

The current president sees all this reportage as “fake news.” If you haven’t figured it out by now, what he means by “fake news” is news or reportage that reflects negatively on him.

 

If it ain’t good news, it’s fake news.

 

But here, in the Suncook Valley, we have a small outpost of the free press: The Suncook Valley Sun. While the paper does not do a lot of reporting, relying on local folks to provide news, it does provide a free forum for citizens with opinions to express those opinions. Without censorship and only a 300-word limit.

 

Just remember that the idea of an independent and free America began with a self-published pamphleteer, Thomas Paine, who had the audacity and courage to promulgate some Common Sense ideas, without which we may never have become a nation.

 

So let us celebrate this enterprise, The Suncook Valley Sun, and use it to freely express ourselves as Americans.

 

Tom Chase
