Another Successful Year Of Promoting Fitness
April 13, the Northwood School Marathon Kids participated in the
final event organized by the Northwood School Wellness Committee.
For the past two months, some students, staff and parents, have been
running or walking together Wednesdays after school. In addition,
participants logged their running miles during the week. After
having completing 25+ miles, Saturday they completed their final
mile. Afterwards students played games organized and run by some
Coe-Brown students, along with Mrs. Jennifer Cox.
thank you to them and to the parents: Mrs. Annette Smith, Mrs. Amy
Tkaczyk. Mrs. Mary Bulger and school staff: Mrs. Tamara LaMontagne,
Mrs. Beth Benham, and Mrs. Linda Kramas who assisted each week on
our Marathon Wednesdays. Also, thank you to the Northwood PTA who
donated healthy snacks and water to the runners.

Advent Christian Church To Host Special Media Presentation
Church in the Narrows, at 113 School St. will host Rev. Clint Taber
and his media presentation on Living In Perilous Times on Sunday
April 28 at 10 am.
the world over are scanning the horizon looking for some ray of
hope. A mood of skepticism, fear and anxiety hangs over our society
like a dark cloud. Things are not working out. Some are even
wondering if this is a signal that the world as we know it is about
generation ago optimism about the future began to soar as we
realized the consequences of reckless warring with weapons of mass
destruction could result in global genocide. This was a time to
dedicate ourselves to peace and to improving the quality of life for
all mankind. But nothing that is happening gives us much confidence
for the future. Random acts of violence like the bombings at the
Boston Marathon, a global war on terrorism, and crises in the Middle
East all serve to remind us that we are living in perilous times.
E. Taber of Kittery, Maine will be at the Northwood Narrows Advent
Christian Church on Sunday morning at 10 am to address these
concerns. Taber has been a pastor, teacher, college administrator,
musician and bible student for over 50 years. He will deliver a
message illustrated with computer generated graphics on the subject
“The Triumph of the Kingdom of God.” In this message he will
demonstrate how the failing kingdoms and governments of men will
soon be replaced with the eternal Kingdom of God at the Second
Coming of Jesus Christ.

the great pleasures of living within ear-shot of Jenness Pond is to
hear the loons calling. You can, too, at “Cornell bird calls.” But
it’s not quite the same.
this month, the NH House considers a bill that passed in the Senate
unanimously which will help preserve this New Hampshire Advantage
for generations to come. SB89 continues to tighten the restrictions
on fishing tackle using lead, forbidding lead jigs (weighted hooks)
of an ounce or less.
would seem to be a minor matter, but since 2000, 52% of the
documented loon deaths in NH were caused by lead jigs. So who could
oppose such common-sense legislation and on what grounds?
turns out that the NH Bass Federation – representing the fishermen,
not the fish, I assume – opposes this measure because, according the
Concord Monitor (4/16/13) “non-toxic alternatives…are harder to find
and more expensive.” Of course, the first is true because the law
hasn’t passed! But if you stop by Heritage Hardware, you will find
that all of the sinkers are non-toxic. So how hard can it be to make
expense, I’ve been a Lake Host on Jenness Pond for years, checking
to prevent milfoil from being carried into the lake on bass boats.
I figure that a guy driving a $40K pick-up towing a $15K bass boat
on the $3K trailer can afford an extra couple of bucks for a
hope that the House – and our representatives, Maureen Mann and
Bruce Hodgden – will pass this bill. Let them know what you think.
