TIF Info And Community Feedback

Submitted By Hal Kreider, Northwood Economic Development Committee


In our March town election we voted to adopt RSA-162K, which enables Northwood to create Tax Increment Financing (TIF) zones.  At the Selectmen’s meeting on Tuesday, July 26th, the Northwood Economic Development Committee will provide more details about how TIF’s work and present our concept for a TIF on the west side of town.  Anyone who would like to learn more about TIF’s and how they could help increase  our community’s tax base or anyone who would like to provide input on our initial concept for a TIF is encouraged to attend.  This is intended to be an informal session to exchange information and ideas with any interested community members.  We hope you can join us.



Shannan Brown Elected First Woman Commander Of New Hampshire Veterans Of Foreign Wars

Shannan Brown of Northwood made history Sunday in Manchester, where the Veterans of Foreign Wars installed its first ever woman state commander. Brown served in the Air National Guard as an Air Traffic Controller in Afghanistan which earned her eligibility to the VFW. Brown stated being the first female commander is nice, but she hopes the honor will become a footnote in a successful year of leadership. She has been an active member of the Northwood Joseph J. Jeffrey VFW Post 7217 and has served as its commander. If anyone is interested in finding out about all the things the VFW does for Veterans and our community check out



This Weekend’s Lrpa After Dark Feature:

1937’S “A Star Is Born”


LACONIA—Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (July 1 & 2)  for an encore presentation  of  our “LRPA After Dark” feature, 1937’s timeless melodrama  “A Star is Born,” starring Janet Gaynor and Frederic March.


“A Star is Born” is the definitive movie about Hollywood fame, fortune, and its human toll: the juxtaposition of the talented, young actress’s rising career with the downward spiral of her husband, an aging, self-destructive, alcoholic matinee idol. This movie is so fantastic that it’s been remade twice, once in 1954, with Judy Garland and James Mason, and again, infamously, in 1976, with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. It’s even in the works again, this time with Bradley Cooper in the starring role! For many fans and critics, however, the original 1937 version is still the best. Filmed in wonderful early Technicolor and directed by William Wellman, it was nominated for six Academy Awards, winning for Best Original Story, and garnering a special award for the film’s outstanding color photography. Critic Leonard Matlin wrote, “Two remakes haven’t dimmed the glow of this drama … March and Gaynor are at their best.” Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this vintage classic!


You can’t find television like this it anywhere but LRPA TV, MetroCast Channel 25. Not a subscriber? Then log onto LiveStream through our website ( where you can catch all the fun.



Letter To The Editor


How far do things actually have to get before the average person wakes up and really looks at the political landscape.  Our founding fathers had a vision of what a free country could accomplish and if any of them were around today, I think they would be ashamed.


Let’s look at what we have.  On the one side the best the Democratic political machine can spit out are a left wing socialist and a Washington insider so buried in the trappings of politics that she doesn’t really say anything.  At least with Bernie you can say he has some integrity and wants to legitimately do the right thing, even if it is too far left.


On the other side of the aisle we have the Republican Party exploding from within.  A rich billionaire, who could care less about the average American, has pretty much won the primary race and his party doesn’t even want him.  The only reason he is winning is due to the American people being tired of politicians that get zero accomplished.


I belong to a third party called the Modern Whigs (  What attracted me to them was a belief in a merit-based system and a government that served the people.  It is more important to get things done than to play politics.


Maybe someday people will wake up before it is too late.  Many citizens have sacrificed a great deal over the years to make our country great and within one generation it is going down the Johnny flusher.  The current system is a joke. Both the Republican and Democratic Parties couldn’t care less about the average American.  Corruption of money and power run this country and eventually we will all pay the price.

Umami Opens

By Meggin Dail

Solar powered Umami opens in Northwood with Chef Zack Squier in the kitchen.


If you’ve been watching the progress on that big barn and house that sits diagonally across from TD Bank on Route 4 in Northwood, surely you’ve noticed by now there’s a new taste in town; Umami.


Umami is defined as one of the five basic tastes. and can be translated as “pleasant savory taste.”  After a successful start with Hunky Dunk Keepin’ It Local Market, owner Jesicka Belair knew the next order of business was a farm-to-table café. After a long journey (where only the best destinations await), the cafe has opened to a wonderful start. If you’re curious about what’s behind those barn doors; here’s a sneak peek:


Umami is open Wednesday through Saturday for breakfast and lunch 7 AM-3 PM. They use local ingredients to make their breakfast sausages and sandwiches, salads, burgers, and rice bowls. The sauces are made from scratch, as well as the aiolis. The croissants and pastries are fresh every day from Bread and Chocolate. The eggs and produce are organic and the biscuits are made on site.Their coffee is Café Monte Alto grown on a plantation in Peru, then ground in Portsmouth. The meat is pasture-raised and appears in menu favorites like the pork belly reuben and the mac and cheese burger. Umami also offers sweet potato burgers and truffled fries and many of the menu options can be made gluten free.


While the café is building its audience, the market will be rebuilding as well, currently marketing honey, syrup, eggs and dairy. Umami also features various local artists’ work on display and for sale. Most everything you sit at or on has been repurposed such as the barn wood counter from the previously attached carriage house. Everything you see has a story behind it and Jesicka is more than happy to share her sources and stories.
