Dear Northwood Friends and Neighbors:
Well, the “Bean Hole Bash” has come and gone. It was a great
success. On behalf of Greg Bane, committee president, myself,
and the rest of the committee, we want to thank all those who
unselfishly gave time and effort to make the event a resounding
success. There were so many that made the event work that I
can’t name without missing some. But the “Bash” went well, even
with the rain and wind that arrived at dinner time, and we would
like to thank you very much for your support
Last year some of the profits went to two scholarships of
$500.00 for a male and female graduating student of Coe Brown
Northwood Academy. We are looking forward to this year’s
donation. Our goal is to pass it back to the town.
on behalf of Greg and myself and the rest of the committee I
want to thank you all for a job well done. We look forward to
doing it again next year. Keep July 26th and 27th, 2019 open for
the annual “Bean Hole Bash.”
Committee Vice President
This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:
1937’s “A Star Is Born”
Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this
Friday and Saturday night (August 24 & 25) for our “LRPA
After Dark” feature, 1937’s timeless melodrama “A Star is
Born,” starring Janet Gaynor and Frederic March.
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
Northwood Church Hosts “Drive-In” Movie Night

Letter To The Editor
Today, Thursday. Aug. 16, over 300 newspapers across the nation
featured editorials declaring that they - the free press - are
not the enemies of the people, as current President Trump has
said they are on numerous occasions.
They are, of course, correct. Rather then being the enemies of
the people, they are the informers of the people. Informing us
so that we may know the facts and the truth. And make informed
decision as citizens and, for some of us, as voters.
current president sees all this reportage as “fake news.” If you
haven’t figured it out by now, what he means by “fake news” is
news or reportage that reflects negatively on him.
it ain’t good news, it’s fake news.
here, in the Suncook Valley, we have a small outpost of the free
press: The Suncook Valley Sun. While the paper does not do a lot
of reporting, relying on local folks to provide news, it does
provide a free forum for citizens with opinions to express those
opinions. Without censorship and only a 300-word limit.
Just remember that the idea of an independent and free America
began with a self-published pamphleteer, Thomas Paine, who had
the audacity and courage to promulgate some Common Sense ideas,
without which we may never have become a nation.
let us celebrate this enterprise, The Suncook Valley Sun, and
use it to freely express ourselves as Americans.
