Letter To The Editor
New Hampshire House of Representatives is in recess for the
summer and will reconvene in September to address Governor
Hassan’s vetoes. Throughout the past few weeks, Governor Hassan
has vetoed many of the good (and great) bills agreed upon by the
House in the Senate. One of the most recent vetoes from the
Governor is the proposed Constitutional Carry bill that has
passed many states such as our neighboring Vermont and gives law
abiding citizens the right to fully exercise their Second
Amendment rights. The Governor also vetoed several bills that
would provide parents a greater voice in their students’
education and would translate greater control to local
From a bill that would require schools to give parental notice
before teaching sexually explicit conduct to a bill that would
allow parents to opt their children out of Common Core
sanctioned testing, the Governor has taken a stand with state
bureaucrats and not with the parents and community members in
our towns. Last and most importantly, the Governor vetoed HB1
and HB2, better known as the budget. The budget put before
Governor Hassan was produced from laborious effort by the House
and the Senate and is a good budget that restores former
concerns from the House budget and increases funding to charter
fully support the Second Amendment and I believe that parents
and municipalities should have the strongest voice in a
student’s education. Additionally, I believe the state should
have a fiscally responsible budget that addresses our fiscal
needs in the Granite State while maintaining our needs and
responsibilities. Therefore, when it comes to address these
bills, I plan on voting to overturn the Governor’s vetoes.

Northwood Recreation Update
Submitted By Heather Heigis - Recreation Commission Chair
Northwood Recreation Department’s early registration deadline
for fall soccer is quickly approaching. Register by August 3rd
and enjoy a reduced rate and ensure a spot on the team. Teams
will fill up quickly after August 3rd and space becomes limited.
The cost for 3 year olds and kindergarten is $40.00, 1st - 6th
grade is $55.00. After August 3rd there is a $10 late charge.
are we so crazy about the soccer deadline??
the Recreation Department we understand summer is the worst
possible time to make a deadline. We are fully aware of the
frustration of parents who miss signing their child up for
soccer especially if that means late fees or possibly not
getting on a team.
I wanted to take just a second to explain to you why we have
such a firm date. Once we find out how many children we have
participating in the program, we divide the kids into teams that
allow for your child to have the maximum amount of play time. In
a nutshell we want you to get your money’s worth and a positive
experience for your child. There is nothing worse for you or
your child than only getting to play a small portion of the game
because the teams were over-filled. Once we know how many teams
we have, we work to build a game schedule with the other towns.
ready for it… here comes the tricky part. If, after the
deadline, we get an onslaught of late ad-ons, our only option is
to add them to existing teams. As you can imagine, we would get
a lot of angry emails if a child is on a team of 30 kids. So, we
do need to close teams when the number of kids reach 12.
that you know the process, you get to choose to roll the dice
and hope for open spots after the deadline and get to pay the
complementary $10 late fee or register before the deadline
ensuring a spot on the team.
Hope you have an excellent summer and thank you for your
