Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

Government never let’s me down. It is so big, so pervasive, so amok in trying to control everything in our lives that it does not, cannot do anything with even a modicum of efficiency. Medicare, Welfare and now Social Security are so rife with corruption that it leaves so little for those who really need help and deserve it, including our military. Obamacare. What a colossal mess and control grab. I’m not surprised that with three years for implementation, it cannot even get off the ground.


And right in the middle of it’s blundering roll out Senator Coburn, a doctor from Oklahoma released his 2 year old study of SS Disability Insurance. It’s scathing. It reminded me of a study on reforms done in Britain where disability recipients had to submit to a medical test to confirm that they were too disabled to work. “A third (878,000) didn’t even bother and dropped out of the program. Of those tested, more than half (55%) were found fit for work, and a quarter were found fit for some work.” As a business owner I could have hired SSDI recipients “under the table” all week long.

I like the sign that is always up in a Democratic Party Booth. It says if you like SS, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare and so forth thank the Democrats or something like that. I agree, if you like all that corruption, vote for those that would increase it. Despite putting billions into it SS hasn’t a penny. Same with the rest. We spent it all and 17,000,000,000 more and counting.  Now we expect our kids and their kids to pay for out extravagances, and our retirement and our health insurance. What!   Are!   We!    Doing! ????

Four Coe-Brown Northwood Academy students from Mrs. Usinger’s Poetry and Performance class attended The Hall-Kenyon Poetry Awards on Thursday, October 3rd, at the Concord City Auditorium where they met former US Poets Laureate Donald Hall and Billy Collins.  The students presented Collins, this year’s award recipient, with their stop-motion short of his poem “My Hero” that the class created to celebrate Mr. Collins’ visit to NH. The stop-motion animation of “My Hero” on that the students created may be viewed on YouTube:



Thank You


A heartfelt thank you from the family of Glenn Josiah


Heartfelt thanks to all our friends and neighbors in Northwood for joining our family in the celebration of Glenn’s life, for the cakes and cookies they brought, and all the wonderful cards, emails, sentiments and prayers. Glenn will be missed, but remembered always.



Chesley Memorial Library News


Humor and Harmony is back!  The Chesley Memorial Library (with lots of help from our Friends!) will sponsor  “Humor and Harmony” featuring Rebecca Rule and Cordwood at the Masonic Hall on Route 4 in Northwood on Saturday, October 26, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Suggested donation is $5.00 per person at the door.  Cookies and beverages will be available for purchase. 


Rebecca Rule is a humorist/writer who specializes in funny stories about New Hampshire.  You never know what is going to happen once the lies, uh, stories start flying.  Her latest book is a picture book called “The Iciest, Diciest, Scariest Sled Ride Ever!”  Other books include “Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New Hampshire-the Present, the Past, and the Future”; “Live Free & Eat Pie: A Storyteller’s Guide to New Hampshire”; and “Headin’ for the Rhubarb: A New Hampshire Dictionary (well, kinda).”


Cordwood is a bluegrass and folk quartet made up of instrumental, vocal, and recording artists from Northwood, Strafford, and Deerfield.  This is not your local neighborhood hobby band.  They are a fine group of seasoned New England musicians.  Each can hold his or her own at field picking or a back stage jam, and yet, as a band, they present a highly polished on-stage performance.  All four members of Cordwood are storytellers and songwriters, creating original material for instrumentalists who can sing and harmonize, sometimes taking the lead vocal, other times hanging back and lending two, three, or even four part harmonies to a song.  Cordwood provides a unique sound to both originals and the covers they perform.  Their tunes remain heartfelt and down-home.  The band’s material is a mixture of traditional bluegrass, folk, and swing.  Cordwood is Wini Young on banjo and guitar, Walt Kutylowski on bass, Al Pratt on guitar, and Bob Young on mandolin, names you may remember from Big Chicken, The Deerfield Coffeehouse Band, and Fat Hands.
