Northwood NH News

July 27, 2016

This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:

1940’s “His Girl Friday”


Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (July 29 & 30) for our “LRPA After Dark” presentation of 1940’s romantic comedy “His Girl Friday,” starring Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell and Ralph Bellamy.


In “His Girl Friday,” we meet ace reporter Hildy Johnson (Russell), who resigned from her job at a top Chicago newspaper four months ago – but try telling that to her former editor and husband Walter Burns (Grant), who has been sending her telegrams night and day, trying to get her to return to her post. She has gotten a quickie divorce and is set to marry the perfectly nice but awfully dull insurance salesman Bruce Baldwin (Bellamy) the very next day. Walter, who admits he was a good boss but a bad husband, doesn’t want to lose her, either as a reporter or as the love of his life. When he learns of this development, Walter pulls out all the stops to convince Hildy to write one last big story – the story of her career! – about convicted murderer Earl Williams, a man whose case was bungled by the local sheriff, and who is scheduled to be executed within 24 hours.  She pursues the story while Walter finds more ways to impede the wedding. As Walter works by Hildy’s side, she must figure out what she really wants in life.


Adapted from the popular stage play “The Front Page,” and directed by the legendary Howard Hawks, it’s no wonder that “His Girl Friday” is considered to be a classic screwball comedy and a masterpiece of mid-20th century filmmaking. It is one of the first films to use fast-paced, overlapping dialogue, particularly in scenes where the characters are wittily sparring with one another. All of the well-cast actors give top-notch performances, particularly Grant and Russell, who ad-libbed some of their clever dialogue. New York Times critic Frank S. Nugent called “’His Girl Friday’ …  the maddest newspaper comedy of our times.” What’s not to love?  “Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this romantic screwball classic from the past.


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

Letter To The Editor

Those Seductive Federal Grants


Last week I described a new rule called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH),  just passed by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It applies to all localities that have ever accepted HUD funds, and it should be a cautionary tale for those states and towns enticed by the lure of “free” Federal money.


The Ethics and Policy Center explains what this rule does in order to promote what it calls “Fair Housing:”


“AFFH gives the federal government a way to re-engineer nearly every American neighborhood, imposing a preferred racial and ethnic composition,...weakening or casting aside the authority of local governments over core responsibilities such as zoning, transportation, and education.”


Here’s what HUD is doing in Dubuque, Iowa.  It’s  requiring  Dubuque to recruit low-income tenants from Chicago for its Section 8 housing, even though Dubuque is in another state and over 200 miles away.


It’s all part of the Obama Administration’s goal of regionalizing the nation, removing local control from states, counties, and towns. According to Deborah Thornton, Research Analyst for  the Public Interest Institute, “These regions will be directed by unelected governing boards who do not report to the voters.”


She continues, “Once they lose local control of housing, then schools, zoning, transportation, the environment, and business location will be next. The central planners of HUD intend to... force every region of the U.S. to meet nationally determined standards for the management and makeup of every aspect of our local communities.”


Self-rule will rapidly diminish, replaced by directives from Washington bureaucrats. Only Congress or a new President can change this.


Consequently, the Public Interest Institute warns against accepting Federal grants. “It cannot be said too often: if you take their money, you play by their rules. Their rules are not pretty.”
