Well it’s the time of year when black
cats get more respect and you can get away with eating more
candy than you should. Kids like dressing up and it’s a good
excuse for a party and spooky decorations. In the spirit of fun
some folks are putting in some extra effort and creativity with
outside Halloween decorations along the 1st NH Turnpike. What a
great idea... what if this were to catch on with lots of homes
in the area?

A Question for
The Attorney General’s office released
a report on Sept. 30 summarizing the investigation into former
Rep. Kyle Tasker’s “drug distribution at the State House.” Six
Representatives were found to have either discussed or purchased
drugs from him.
In no instance did these
Representatives - all of whom had sworn to uphold the
Constitution and laws of the State of New Hampshire - report his
illegal activities, either to the Speaker of the House or to
As a result of these revelations, it
becomes clear that Tasker was not circumspect about his
activities. And if “he smoked marijuana in the State House
anteroom,” as reported, it is probable that others would have
interacted with him when he was “stoned.”
My question is: what did these others
know and when did they know it?
I direct this question specifically to
Kyle’s running mates and District 2 Representatives, James
Spillane and Joe Duarte. At the time of his arrest, they were
quick to issue a statement. Did they see this coming?
And if they did, did they remain
silent as the others did?
I would hope that they and the other
local Representatives who served with Tasker - Bruce Hodgdon and
Yvonnne Dean-Bailey - will speak to this issue before the
Weekend At Northwood Advent Church
The Northwood Advent Christian Church
invites you to join us for Homecoming on Sunday October 16. The
church is located at 113 School St. (Rt. 107) in the Narrows.
The 10:00 service will feature some great music and a theme of
“Finding a Place to Call Home”. A pot luck dinner will start
right after the service at 11:30, beverages will be provided.
You are welcome to bring a dish to share but there will be more
than enough to go around. This good time of food and fellowship
will end with a 35 minute film starting about 12:30 on “The
Prodigal God”, Finding Your Place at the Table with Tim Keller.
This brief film about Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son will
help us discover the amazing depths of God’s love. If you cannot
come for the entire time, come for the service and pot luck or
pot luck and the film or any part that you can!
Homecoming/Back To Church Sunday is
for everyone, young and old in age and new or long time resident
in the area. If you have not been to church for years or have
never been we invite you to come and see that here is a place of
community, caring and friendship, where faith and reality meet.
Real people on the road of life sharing the “Bread Of Life”. We
don’t have all the answers but we know One who does. There is a
place at the table for you here.
On Saturday, the ladies of the church
will be hosting their annual Fall Fling luncheon. We invite you
to come and see what God is doing. We are happy to invite you
back to church. Join us October 16 and every Sunday at 10 am.
Hours Of Hunger
Submitted By Jim
Grant, Northwood Garage
As we continue our Commitment to Community, Northwood Garage is
proud to be teaming up with other local businesses, friends and
neighbors to support “End 68 Hours of Hunger”.
Special Thanks To The Tasker Families
Linda received a message from Diane telling her that the trunk
of her SUV was filled with food and she would be dropping it
off. As you can see there was not enough room in the
donation basket, we had to bring in a table. As I
was thanking Diane for her generosity and support she said “We
need to get other businesses to participate!”.
Tasker’s Well Company Family Challenge
Diane Tasker has placed a challenge out to Northwood, Strafford
& Nottingham businesses, friends & neighbors. Large
or small, it doesn’t matter - having Jim and Linda match your
donation means twice as many can benefit. In our small towns
there’s no reason for children to go hungry. Show you’re
part of making our community a better place for everyone.
Together we all make a difference!
There you go fellow business owners, the challenge is out
there. Are you going to step up in support of your
community? The fact is nearly 1 in every 5 children go
hungry. You can make a difference… In our customer
waiting area we have a collection basket for non-perishable
goods. The next time you’re grocery shopping, pick
up an extra item or 2 of non-perishable food and bring it to our
front office/waiting area. The green basket is easily seen
next to the table that the Tasker’s filled up. Let’s fill
Danny & Melinda Tasker along with Jeff

Contrary to the information in Tim
Jandebeur’s October 5th letter, no player was cut from any
Northwood team in the school this year (or last).
At least one of this year’s
instructional boys’ soccer players was encouraged to join the
team by one of the “gifted” that Tim so derogatorily referenced.
Northwood coaches strive to put every
player in – an effort not seen in other towns. To have Tim
insinuate that these coaches “think all of the rules should be
centered around their student” is preposterous. I’d encourage
Tim to actually attend practices/games instead of propagating
Many schools around us do cut players
- because we are in a competitive sports league. There is a
lesson in that, also; sometimes you make it and sometimes you
need to work hard between seasons to make it next year. If Tim
doesn’t respect the concept of competitive sports, the
appropriate venue for that discussion is a Board meeting - not a
letter full of half-truths.
If Tim would like to see a unified
sports program in Northwood, I have no doubt that the same
parents he seems willing to throw under the bus, will be the
first to support this program. But, to date, Northwood does not
have such a program. If Tim is actually willing to support
implementing a unified sports program (and the funding it
requires) at the elementary school level, the appropriate venue
for discussing implementation is a Board meeting - not an
article in the newspaper full of half-truths and insults to
members of this community.
Mr. Jandebeur, I encourage you to
either do your homework or step down from your position on the
Board. As a Board member, propagating untruths is undermining
Northwood and the reputation we are all trying hard to build.
