Affordable Health Care in NH


“Health Care Costs Rise by Most in 32 Years” says the September 16, 2016, CNN headline. Even worse, CNN reports that  the percentage increase in premiums on the Obamacare exchanges is expected to be in “double-digits this year.”


Further, New Hampshire Public Radio informs us that now employees are paying an ever larger share of their employer-provided health insurance bill, and “high deductible health plans are the new normal.” NHPR tells us that “overall, health insurance premiums for a family covered by an employer health plan”  has risen to an average cost of  $18,142.


Meanwhile, a Politico report about what it calls “Obamacare sticker shock,” says that  “in New Hampshire, two of the five carriers want to sell plans with rate increases above 30 percent.”


This bad news must come as a disappointment to those who believed President Obama’s promise that Obamacare would  “cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”

LRPA After Dark Celebrates Halloween

With A Month Of Scary Cinema!


Throughout October, join Lakes Region Public Access Television each Friday and Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. for a scary good time! “LRPA After Dark” celebrates Halloween with four frightening films from Hollywood’s past. This weekend (October 7 & 8), we get the ball rolling with 1959’s darkly comic horror film “A Bucket of Blood,” directed by Roger Corman and starring Dick Miller, Barboura Morris and Antony Carbone.


Meet Walter Paisley (Miler), busboy at San Francisco’s Yellow Door Café, the hangout for a crowd of beatnik poets, artists and musicians. It also attracts a pair of undercover police officers, looking to make a drug bust. Walter is naive and talentless, but is filled with blind admiration for this group and wants desperately to belong. He particularly wants to impress Carla (Morris), an artist on whom he’s developed an unrequited crush. No one, including Carla, thinks he has any creative gift. They treat him with open disdain, but that doesn’t change Walter’s mind. One night, he goes home and works on a sculpture, only to be frustrated with his lack of success. He accidentally kills his landlady’s cat, which, after he recovers from his shock and disgust, gives him a morbidly wicked idea. The next day, he brings his newest work of art into the café – an incredibly lifelike sculpture of a cat! Leonard De Santis (Carbone), the café’s owner, proudly displays this piece of art, which earns Walter the respect and praise that he was so eager to receive. One night, after receiving a suspicious gift from an admirer, an undercover detective follows Walter home, with tragic (!) results. What’s an up-and-coming artist to do?


“A Bucket of Blood” is one of director Roger Corman’s most beloved movies, and has rightly earned its place as a classic B horror film. Not only does it satirize the often phony, pretentious world of art, but has also been hailed as Corman’s sly commentary on the film world. He made this movie in five days on an almost non-existent budget, and many critics (especially those in Europe) hailed the film as a marvel, and began to recognize Corman as a truly important filmmaker. The irony is delicious, and so are the high-camp horror hijinks. It’s not to be missed! So grab your candy corn and join LRPA after dark for this beatnik horror classic from the past.


Mark your calendars for these coming Halloween treats:

October 14 & 15: 1922’s “Nosferatu” (silent)

October 21 & 22: 1965’s Planet of the Vampires

October 28 & 29: 1968’s Night of the Living Dead



Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

A parent email prompted this missive. Sports at Northwood School has become far too political. It is led by exactly the same small group of millennial parents that are driving the “I want it, I want it now, and I want someone else to pay for it” movement at our school. They are more concerned about expensive bats than education.


Sports is supposed to be a learning experience. To be a team player, to learn to follow rules and regulations, to see the value of being in shape, to have pride in your school are just a few reasons to have sports in public schools. Every student that meets the grade criteria should be allowed to play regardless of their ability. Parents of  all students pay the same taxes. Their children all deserve the same education.


But in Northwood everything is limited. Only so many can be on this team or that team, meaning only the best make it. So really it is only a learning experience for the gifted, either athletically or in this parents accusation, gifted in who you know. Easy to figure who the coaches are. The parents of an outstanding athlete thinks that all of the rules should be centered around their student. The less gifted athletes get nothing yet they pay the same. Their lesson is that public money for sports is only for the few.


Want to see fair, go to a unified sports soccer, basketball or volleyball game at Dover High. Unified sports is a team comprising a range of very athletic to severely handicapped athletes. That is a team concept that I can respect. It’s athletics of all abilities teaching parents the values of team sports. Public money should be fairly distributed.

CBNA Students Commended In 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program


Headmaster David Smith of Coe-Brown Northwood Academy announced today that seniors Emilia Cronshaw of Strafford, Joshua Hall of Barrington and Zackary Pine of Strafford, have been named commended students in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program.  A letter of commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the headmaster to these scholastically talented seniors. About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Although they will not continue in the 2016 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/ National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).


“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC.  “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”



CBNA Seniors Named Semifinalists In 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program


Officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation recently announced that Coe-Brown Northwood Academy seniors Davio Deluca of Nottingham and Caroline Lavoie of Barrington have been named as Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program. Mr. DeLuca and Miss Lavoie join approximately 16,000 other Semifinalists nationwide in this 62nd annual Merit Scholarship Program. These two seniors, along with other academically talented students, have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit scholarships worth about $33 million that will be offered next spring.  To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements including submitting a detailed application and essay to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.  About 90% of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and more than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.  Congratulations to Davio and Caroline on this achievement.

CBNA Landscaping Class Keeps Campus Beautiful

CBNA agriculture students Daniel Gallant (left) and Tyler Millette with the help of Luke Belbin hard at work with the Pinkham Hall landscape renovation.


The Coe-Brown Northwood Academy landscaping class has been busy during the start of the school year by renovating landscaping on campus grounds. With the new addition of the foyer to front of Pinkham Hall, the foundation plantings were replaced with new plant material. Students used a simple symmetrical pattern to create a formal, neat looking entrance to the main building. Class members Nicole Anthony, Luke Belbin, Steven Chase, Daniel Gallant, Logan Goodwin, Kevin Hennessey, Jacob McHugh, Tyler Millette, Troy Russo, Paige Trela, and Faith Wilson, under the tutelage of agriculture teacher Sarah Ward and mentor Charles Whitten, learned about soil preparation, correct planting techniques, laying down fabric cloth, and mulching and then used arborvitae, weigela, and ground cover roses to complete the project. Their efforts resulted in a lovely, pleasing area to complement the new look of the Pinkham Hall lobby
