Thank You


In the spirit of thankfulness Atlas wishes to thank his kind and generous Northwood community.


Atlas a “throw away” horse at the young age of three, was found at his second rescue center. He was in a state of starvation, lame, infested with worms, and very depressed when he was purchased three and a half years ago and brought to a startup farm in Northwood.  There he found a community of kind and generous Northwood residents. 


At his arrival on the farm the neighbors came out in droves to welcome him. Special homemade organic cookies were brought to him by one neighbor, apples by another, black licorice by yet another neighbor. A stall was built for him with material and labor donated by a caring carpenter. People across town thought of his needs and gave hay, corn and vegetables. 


Most of all the people in Northwood gave him love, all for a horse that has yet to give a soul a ride. Atlas has two indented ribs and therefore will never be much of a ride, but this doesn’t seem to bother the people in Northwood. 


So that being said Atlas wishes to thank his many Northwood friends for their ongoing kindness, unconditional love and generosity.  Molly Detrude, Tammy Detrude, Dylan Detrude, Laurie Lalish, Ann and Bob Knowlton, Barbara Tuttle, Ann, Barbra, Eric Stevens, Piece Time Puzzle owners Mark and Rose Stevens, Ben and Lucy Edwards, Jim and Colleen Ryan, Byron and Kathy Peck, Kathy Bono, Priscilla Merrill, Debbie, Russ Belau, Cheryl Pritchet …  Happy Thanksgiving from your favorite horse!



Cazenovia College Makes Their Mark At

First Horse Show Of The Season

Northwood horse.jpg

Haley Bell and Samantha Bogart of Cazenovia College show off their 1st places in their jumping classes.


The Cazenovia College Equestrian team hunt seat riders traveled to their first back-toback IHSA shows hosted by SUNY Geneseo at Leg Up Stables of Geneseo, NY. IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) was established in 1967. This type of horse showing for intercollegiate competition is to invite fair competition in the form of catch riding, which is when competing riders pick a random horse’s name (provided by the hosting team) out of a hat and then must compete the horse in a jumping or flat class, depending on the level of the rider.


IHSA riders are not allowed to practice on the horse. College team scoring is determined by the placement that their point riders win in their certain classes. On the morning of the show, coaches pick their certain point riders for each level and class offered and ribbons won (1st = 7pts, 2nd = 5 pts, 3rd = 4 pts, 4th = 3 pts, 5th = 2 pts, 6 = 1 pt) go towards the team’s overall score.


All team members of Cazenovia College represented the school very well by earning Reserve Champion Team at the show on Saturday, only three points behind St. Lawrence University. Captain and sophomore, Haley Bell, of Northwood, NH was the designated point rider for both the Novice fences and Novice flat classes, which proved to be beneficial as Bell went on to win both classes, contributing 14 points to Cazenovia College’s overall score. Those


ribbons not only benefited the team but also qualified Bell for the Zone 2 Region 2 competition that will be held in March, 2014. Later in the day Bell and freshman, Samantha Bogart, also of Cazenovia College, competed in a ride-off to determine the champion high point rider of the day.


Bell earned the high point title with her teammate, Bogart, coming in as the reserve champion high point rider. To round out the day, other Cazenovia College riders also joined Bell in qualifying for the Zone 2 Region 2 competition: Tayler Rohling and Amanda Graf for the Advanced Walk, Trot, Canter class, Natania Diamond for Novice Fences, and Hannah Mueller for Intermediate fences.


On the following day the Cazenovia College Equestrian team of hunt seat riders continued to dominate at the show and ride the Geneseo provided horses well. Great jumping classes were had by all Cazenovia College riders as well as the flat classes with three of the point riders winning their respective classes (Erica Sparks for Open Flat, Haley Bell for Intermediate


Flat, and Kierstyn Duggleby for Novice Flat). Karl Carichner ended the day with a solid 2nd place finish in the Walk Trot division, clinching the win for Cazenovia College over St. Lawrence University.


After this double header horse show, Cazenovia College is leading the Zone 2 Region 2 point standings over the nine teams competing in this region. The team is back in practice gearing up for their upcoming horse shows for the rest of the fall semester.



Second Grade Goes Shopping!

Norhtwood School_store_1.jpg

The second graders at Northwood School are very excited to be participating in a math unit involving money!  Students are earning coins each day and are able to shop at our second grade school store (soon to be named)!  


This project has students identifying coins, counting money, trading coins for like amounts, and making purchasing decisions.  As the year progresses, students will be responsible for making change.  


Volunteers from the community come in and help us with our banking on Thursdays and shopping on Fridays.  The second graders and their teachers would like to thank these volunteers for helping make this program so successful!

Letter To The Editor


Dear Editor, 

Just how much, really, do parents in this or any other community care about their children’s education? 


As a parent, or grandparent for that matter, is it worth taking a few seconds of your time to answer that question?  I ask this because however well intended, a teacher can never care about an individual child as much as the parents. In theory.  That is, if a parent cares little then it is possible that the teacher cares more.  (The ‘care less’ are probably not reading this). 


For those parents who care a lot, regardless of any good intentions or effort by your child’s teacher,  you are about to lose any real say as to how or what your child will be taught.  School boards will become   rubber stamps for mandates on curriculum not  generated from even Concord but from Washington D.C.


These new controls are what is called the Common Core Curriculum.  The CCC has been a long time the works advocated by those that want centralized, one designed national education.  This advocacy is in spite of experience and fact that there are no masterminds anywhere - especially in Washington -  that know better than the vast variety of educators across the country. 


Oddly some teachers, not all, who were upset with the dictates of ‘No Child Left Behind’ are not objecting to the CCC which is NCLB on steroids.   CCC is being sold quite disingenuously as a national effort to improve educational standards.  It does not.  In addition it institutes a massive student data sharing program from K-12 with many other government agencies supposedly with anonymity.  Not true, your children will be tracked, in detail.


That anyone would willingly turn over the education of their children to a distant bureaucracy is irresponsible.  If you’re insulted perhaps  you deserve to be.

Dear Editor,

I would like to than Richard Doucet for the well thought reminder and review of some of the history of Veteran’s Day. We are constantly in jeopardy of forgetting.
