Letter To The Editor


With the Presidential election over, it is ‘prophetic’ to look back at the interview retired Republican U.S. Supreme Court Justice and former NH Attorney General David Souter had in 2012 with PBS news. It was the first in a series named, “How Does the Constitution Keep Up with the Times” and called a civic initiative aimed at educating NH citizens about the nation’s founding document and promoting the reintroduction of meaningful civics education.


During the interview, he said that republican government wasn’t threatened by foreign invasion or a military coup, but rather by civic ignorance. “What I worry about is, when problems are not addressed and the people do not know who is responsible… some one person will come forward and say, ‘Give me total power and I will solve this problem’.”


“That is how the Roman Republic fell.” “That is the way democracy dies,” he added.


He also stated, “I don’t believe there is any problem of American politics in American public life which is more significant today than the pervasive civic ignorance of the Constitution of the US and the structure of government.”


Donald Trump’s multitude of ill-informed statements seemed to highlight what Souter said was a likely outcome. How many illegal actions did Trump announce his intent to commit since day one of his run for the presidency. Ironically, his strongest support in the election came from uneducated, uninformed male voters. If the Affordable Care Act is rescinded, up to 20 million people could lose their coverage, many of whom unknowingly voted for Mr. Trump.


With control of Congress remaining republican, the President-Elect from the business world was accustomed to issuing orders with little regard of the circumstances. Justice Souter warned us about this type of person and four years later his name is Donald Trump.

Submittee By Northwood Crankpullers Snowmobile Club Board of Directors, and Officer


Attention Northwood Crankpuller members, At our next upcoming meeting, December 6th at 7:00pm at Lakeshore Farm, we will be having a vote on our memberships dues. This will be a special meeting to have short discussion and then vote before our normal slate of business.


As per our club bylaws, the membership dues must be voted on by the General Membership. Normally, this is supposed to take place at our club Annual meeting.


The Board of Directors would like to revisit this issue and present some info to the membership before voting in any changes that may need to be necessary at this meeting. Some changes may need to be made to make sure our membership is compliant with N.H. RSA’s dealing with registration and other RSA’s dealing with potential Anti-Trust matters.


We hope for a large turnout at this meeting as this is important to the clubs ability to do business.


Thank you very much,

Harlem Rockets Comedy Basketball Team Coming To CBNA

Members of the Harlem Rockets Comedy Basketball will be coming to Coe-Brown on Friday, November 18, 2016 to benefit CBNA Hoop.


Coe-Brown Northwood Academy will be hosting some very special guests on Friday, November 18, 2016 at 6:30 pm at the Smith Hall Gym on the CBNA campus in Northwood, NH.  The Harlem Rockets, a talented group of basketball entertainers who combine incredible show time basketball skills and family-friendly comedy, will face the Coe- Brown All Stars in a game benefiting the CBNA Boys and Girls Basketball Programs.


Having played over 2500 games in 16 years without a single defeat, the Harlem Rockets offer something for everyone to enjoy.  Sports enthusiasts will be intrigued by the athleticism and size of the Rockets.  Basketball aficionados will be dazzled by the ball-handling wizardry of Clarence “Mugsy” Leggett. Mugsy is one of the world’s extraordinary dribblers and a former Harlem Globetrotter. Included will be the appearance of the “Twin Towers” Curtis “Tiny” Johnson standing 7’ 5” tall and “Super Mario” standing 7’ 3” tall. Yes, (2) 7-Footers will be in the building! And since this is comedy basketball, the Harlem Rockets present to you the All Time Funny Man and one of Show Basketball’s Greats……. James “Speedy “Williams, who was featured in the movie, “Above The Rim” starring Tupac Shakur and Duane Martin. Better known as The “Crown Prince of Laughs”, Speedy was also one of the “Original Nike Free-Style Ballers in the Nike Commercial, and he also performed live at the MTV Music Awards while Jay Z did his thing. The Harlem Rockets incorporate the audience, especially children, into the show and are always available to meet the fans and give autographs at halftime and after the game.


In this special event to raise money for the CBNA Basketball Programs, the Coe-Brown All Stars have graciously agreed to face the Harlem Rockets. The CBNA “Dream Team” players include Sam Struthers, Mark Struthers, Mark Carrier, Brent Tzaczyk, Tim Cox, Bill Clarke, Scott Young, Bethany Garboski, Tony DePalma, Joel Kutylowski, Kristen White, Michael Clauss, Peter Attisano, and Ryan Smith will be coached by the inimitable Joe Vachon.


Advance tickets for what promises to be a fun-filled evening for the community are $8 for students and seniors and $10 for adults and are available from basketball team members or at the CBNA Main Office. Tickets will also be available at the door the night of the game at a cost of $10 for students and seniors and $12 for adults.  Get your tickets early. This is a special event you don’t want to miss.





Thank you to all who voted in this exciting (and exhausting) election! I think we are all excited that the TV, radio, and mail ads are finally over!


I wanted to take a quick moment to thank the voters of Northwood, Nottingham, Deerfield, and Candia. I am very grateful and excited to serve as your State Representative for a second term. And a great thank you to my opponent, Hal Rafter. It was by far one of the most issue-focused and respectful races this cycle.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you are interested in particular legislation this year. I am very excited to work with our newly elected Governor to pass good, job growing reforms for NH families.

Letter To The Editor

Election Analysis


As Chester A. Riley used to say on The Life of Riley, “what a revoltin’ development this is.”


But more to the point, let me express my thanks to Tim Janderbeur for pointing out the many of the reasons to vote for Mike Smith to represent Northwood in Concord. His and Betty’s many services to the community, etc. In this rare instance, we were in 100% agreement.


Where we differed was in my decision to inform the voters of Brian J. Stone’s arrest in 2014 for violation of a protective order. For those interested in his response, I refer you to You will note that he fails to explain why a protective order was warranted in the first place!


Regardless, I look forward to Tim’s assistance in redressing this electoral misstep in the future. And I want to thank him for seeing in me a hint of feelings of inferiority. That’s the first time in 71 years that anyone’s noticed.
