Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

Awash, as in flooded. The Northwood School district is awash in money. This will be the third year in a row that money will be returned to the taxpayers in Northwood. Fact, we could have handed over $800K back. About $100K was spent on items that the administration asked for in a “wish list.” The only thing remarkable was that the list didn’t include anything to further the education of our students. Another $100K was spent on two items that could not be bought next year since the budget failed to pass. So they were purchased this year. It’s like a carrot cake with double cream cheese frosting, irresistible.


More? $16.34/thousand is your school tax rate. that is 40% more than the average school tax rate in NH. The municipal (town) tax rate is $5.06, 14% less than the average NH town. $600K could fix that red listed bridge twice over.


More? We just bought bats for $150 each, in a K-8 school. That’s down from last years $300 bats. Where are the $300 bats? As a Northwood taxpayer I’ll feel like the budget is getting right when a $50 bat, bought with someone else’s money, is appreciated.


While it’s unfair to continually appropriate more money than needed from the tax payers, if the kids were getting a decent education I would feel differently about the cost.

Deerfield Cooperative Preschool 5K

Submitted By Kerry Harman


Despite a constantly changing forecast, it turned out to be a beautiful day for the 6th Annual Drag-N-Fly 5K Fun Run/Walk sponsored by Deerfield Veterinary Clinic on Saturday May 14th! The event was hosted by the Deerfield Cooperative Preschool (DCP) and held at the Old Town Hall in Deerfield.


This year’s race had almost 120 participants ranging in age from 3 to 69, some pushing/riding strollers, some enjoying the race with their leashed dogs! The first place finisher Craig Fram completed the course in 19:58 winning both overall and 50+ age category. 2nd place was John Murphy at 22:12 winning the 9-12 age category, and 3rd place was Sam Hopkins at 22:57. Sam’s sister Sophie Hopkins followed at 24:08 coming in first among all female entrants. Full race results can be viewed at 3C’s website at


The race is not only a fundraiser for DCP, but also an opportunity for the non-profit preschool to give back to the community which supports it. This year’s net proceeds will be divided between DCP, David’s House of Lebanon, NH, a home away from home for families of children receiving long term care from Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth, and Branch River Farm, a local conservation center in Deerfield, open for farm visits, classes, and children’s summer camp.


In addition to both the 5K road race and Children’s Fun Run, this year’s event offered a pre-race warm up by Anytime Fitness of Northwood, pony rides by Wolf Creek Stables, and face painting by Chrystina Moran. DCP would like to thank everyone who donated to our raffle baskets or volunteered, and enormous thank you’s to our Level Sponsors, Deerfield Veterinary Clinic, Scribe Software, Brian Eagan Builders, Ridgeview Construction, St. Laurent Collision Center, The Pines Seafood House, Wolf Creek Stables, and Candia First Stoppe, for helping make this day such a success.
