Letter To The Editor
would like to add my voice in support of Karl Doe Bergeron’s
recent and very respectful recent Letter to the Editor. I too
was embarrassed and surprised, to say the least, by Mr.
Janderbeur denouncing Father Loughnane publicly as a “jerk,”
simply for not agreeing with Mr. Janderbeur about the best use
of his own church property.
Janderbeur attributed Fr. Lougnane’s decision to greed, implying
that the father wanted more than the $300 offered, and vilifying
the head of the church as he ‘believed greed was a sin,’ despite
the obviousness of the church needing to serve its parishioners
on a Saturday and Sunday.
That an elected selectman of Northwood would be so
uncompassionate and unable to consider other points of view
beyond his own and his own desires concerns me, and this is not
the representation that I desire.
this were the first time that we’ve heard outrage and bluster
from Mr. Janderbeur, that might be taken into account, yet
instead it is a constant theme – though this particular instance
might constitute a new low. That Mr. Janderbeur was given an
opportunity to rethink his stance when cooler heads might
prevail, and that he refused on the grounds that he wasn’t
acting as a representative when he published in the public paper
his letter that indisputably and unambiguously indicated the
problem was of that very nature only concerns me more.
will be wary, and keeping these instances of public outbursts in
mind when next I see Mr. Janderbeur’s name on a ballot sheet,
and I hope each of you does the same.

Letter To The Editor
have waited a long time to support a presidential candidate who
fully expresses my political views. Bernie Sanders is doing just
that. He openly and honestly talks about the major issues that
are impacting the majority of America. He is presenting
solutions to these problems and people see a viable ways to
overcome the economic inequities they face every day. The agenda
Bernie proposes would help rebuild the middle class and elevate
the “working poor” out of poverty. He would seek ways to tax the
wealthiest Americans so that they would pay their fair share.
These increased revenues would contribute to construction
projects that would improve our infrastructure and put thousands
of people back to work. Bernie’s focus on the real issues has
caused some to say he is too honest about what needs to be done
to get elected.
introduced Bernie at a town hall meeting in Rollinsford, a few
weeks ago. Because I have followed his career from being the
Mayor of Burlington to the United States Senate, I told the
audience that the one thing that hasn’t changed during that time
is Bernie’s integrity and honesty. Therefore he is “a very
unique politician, an honest one.”

that school has started for most children in the area, and the
after-school activities have kicked back into gear, we wanted to
take a moment to thank Our Lady of Lourdes & Saint Joseph’s
Parish for their many years of support for the Northwood Girl
Scout and Boy Scout programs.
use of the St. Joseph’s parish hall for regular meetings has
allowed the Northwood Scouts to provide a place where local
children could come together and learn about teamwork,
leadership, and skill building. Scouts of all ranks and levels
have used the space to plan volunteer and charity work, to cook,
make crafts, sing, sew, dance, and have programs with nurses,
emergency responders, teachers, artists, and people from all
walks of life. We thank both the Parish and Father John for
their generosity and look forward to many more years of
