Greetings fellow locavores!


As many of you know, we have been doing a little bit of construction over here at the store these past few months. Our hope is that we will be able to re-open with an amazing farm to table café this spring, but in order to do so the store will need to take a little bit of time off to restructure the business.


The plan is to put seating in the area that the store is in currently, so in order to finish construction the store is going to have to close for a little while. Because of this there will be a clean-out sale on the remaining food items in the store over the next few weeks to make moving and rearranging a bit easier. Everything in here will be for sale at cost! January 31st the doors will close until the spring. During that time we will be going over the different products that the store carries and deciding which ones are going to come back and which are not. Your input about the which products you’re interested in seeing in here and which ones you wish we carried would be very helpful so that we can make the store even more amazing when we open it back up!


The sale will start this Thursday January 7th and continue until the 31st or whenever everything runs out, whichever comes first. I will continue to order dairy, eggs and bread each week. Those items will not be marked down. We will continue to keep you posted as things unfold.


For all of you who are excited about the café, we will be on the agenda for the town of Northwood’s planning board meeting on January 28th. Please feel free to come down!


Thank you so much for your support and understanding!

SAU #44 Welcomes Katie LeClerc Greer

Internet Safety and Digital Responsibility for Students in Grades 6-8 and 9-12:

Understanding Your Digital Footprint


January 21, 2016


CBNA:   8:00-8:50


Strafford School (Gr. 6-8): 10:50-11:40 Nottingham School (Gr. 6-8): 9:20-10:10 Northwood School (Gr. 6-8):  1:35-2:20


The majority of kids in grades 6 and beyond have social networking accounts and are actively networking with others using various forms of technology (i.e. apps, messaging, etc.). At this stage, it’s imperative for them to know that there are consequences for their actions, as once they send, save or share, their information is out there – and stays out there – forever.   The following is an example of what is covered during this session:


• What is personal information? What are privacy settings?


• Social Networking including current trends


• Interactive gaming rules and thoughts


• Texting/smartphone usage including app trends, appropriateness and  tracking


• Technology tattoos and creating a favorable, positive online brand


• Cyberbullying


PARENTS/GUARDIANS:  We have included something special for you that you will not want to miss!  Join us at Nottingham School for a compelling, informational evening Parent Program  (*must be 18 years or older to attend) January 21, 2016, 6:30pm-8:00pm


 * FREE RAFFLE PRIZE TICKET just for attending will be given to every parent at the evening event for a chance to win gift cards and technology related prizes!


* FREE CHILDCARE will be provided that will include movies and crafts!


* 6:00-6:30pm there will be coffee and snacks prior to the Parent Presentation!


Our kids are doing WHAT? What can I do to protect them? What apps should I be worried about? Is social networking safe? Is my child being cyberbullied? What’s texting? Sexting? What’s next? It’s often overwhelming being a parent today in our technology-driven society. Keeping up with the latest trends and dangers can often seem like an impossible task. Katie will help you navigate the digital waters and let you know what’s new, what’s now, and what’s next when it comes to your children and technology, and provides parents with proactive initiatives to keep kids safe.

Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

A default budget is, by design, a means for citizens to reign in irresponsible spending. There are two ways in New Hampshire to manage the towns’ budgets. The traditional is an annual town meeting where everything is voted on and finalized by a small segment of the town, in Northwood, maybe with luck, 150 people. A small group can easily sway the vote. An SB2 town, like Northwood, has a deliberative session to talk about things and maybe change them in small ways but the actual vote is at a second session where the actual voting is in the privacy of a booth, usually over within 15 minutes. Five to six times more people make the decisions on everything including both the town and school budgets. If the budget does not pass then the default budget becomes the budget.


The default budget is last years budget plus any contractual agreements - any one time purchases in last year’s budget. Pretty straight forward. The default budget, along with local control, is under attack in Northwood. With little enforcement of the default budget there is more and more “playing” where anything goes, and does.


For instance, the $88,171 that I mentioned last week, it should not be in the budget. Those very same pie in the sky maybe students are in the default budget also, which is far worse.


I really look hard at the budgets, but this is way too out of line to even look for. I missed it. Any last vestiges of faith in the SAU budget process and their fairness flew out the window along with a correct default budget. The oversight of the default budget needs to go to the Budget Committee.

Letter To The Editor


As everyone is aware, February 9, 2016 is the date for the New Hampshire Primary.  This process usually causes lots of confusion. When a voter first registers to vote, a choice is made as to a party (either Democrat, Republican or UNDECLARED).  Consequently, if you are registered as a Democrat or a Republican, you will receive the corresponding ballot.  However, if you are registered Undeclared, you will select either Democrat or Republican ballot for that particular election. 


So, now after you vote, you will need to make another decision.  If you voted Republican or Democrat and you want to remain with that party, you don’t need to do anything.  If you want to return to the Undeclared status, you will need to let the Supervisors of the Checklist know to change you back.   If you fail to do this last step, you will continue from that date to be whichever party you voted in the Primary.  This only becomes an issue with a Primary Election.  On a regular election for Town/School matters or the general elections for president, governor, senators, representatives, etc., it doesn’t matter what party you are registered, as only one ballot is used. 


As I said in the beginning, I know this is very confusing.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Town Clerk/Tax Collector’s Office (942-5586, x-201) and we will be happy to help you.   See you on February 9!


Judy C. Pease,

Northwood Town Clerk/Tax Collector
