Northwood sticker.jpg

This sticker was found on our Got Social Security? Thank Democrats bumper sticker after doing some errands in Northwood. It sure is news to us! I wonder how we ever qualified for our most appreciated monthly Social Security checks, and why we filed tax returns every year and paid what was due.  It’s a mystery!

Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

Recently I spoke to many of you on an issue that was very near and dear to me. I’ll say we, but I personally asked you to approve a School Board issue that would give 6 teachers an incentive to retire, allowing for us to hire less expensive replacements. 83% of you approved the plan, thank you.


One question asked was what guarantee the voters had? I repeatedly told you that the School Board had an agreement with the principal to limit new hires at 40K or less. I still believe this to be absolutely the case. However the Board violated what “I” believe was an agreement on this issue.  3 other members stated that they felt that an average pay was the agreement. One member stated that anyone who did not feel that they met the “spirit” of the agreement was “myopic”. OK, so this Board member who spent many, many hours taking this issue to Superior Court without counsel saving thousands of dollars, who spent three days at the recycling center (you’re welcome Jim), is myopic. So be it.


Today even our Presidents parse words and frankly outright lie to us; I like to tell you the truth. I believe that I did, but it appears that I misled you. I apologize and have learned a very valuable lesson.


Two weeks ago I took on the extra duty of being the Board Representative to the Budget Committee knowing that the difficulties would be immense. I have informed the Board that I have rescinded that decision. I have great respect for the Budget Committee and I will not be put into a situation where I might “mistakenly” mislead them. As they say  “been there, done that”. I didn’t enjoy it.
