This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:
Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this
Friday and Saturday night (September 15 & 16) for our “LRPA
After Dark” presentation of 1945’s dark film noir thriller
“Detour,” starring Tom Neal, Ann Savage and Edmund MacDonald.
“Detour,” we meet down-on-his-luck Al Roberts (Neal), an
ill-fated piano player who hitchhikes to California to reunite
with his girlfriend. Along the way, he gets a ride from Charles
Haskell (MacDonald), who tells Al an ominous story about his
recent encounter with female hitchhiker. Haskell suffers a
fatal heart attack in the middle of nowhere. Al, fearful that he
will be accused of murder, buries Haskell’s body, takes his
possessions, and assumes his identity. He stops at a gas
station, where he picks up a drifter named Vera (Savage). Vera
soon figures out the situation and uses it to her advantage,
threatening Al to join her in a scheme or to be ratted out to
the cops. Will Al be able to extract himself from this nightmare
series of events, or will Fate continue to dog him wherever he
“Detour” is an extremely low budget thriller, shot in only six
days by director Edgar G. Ulmer. At a running time of less than
70 minutes, the movie packs a lot of story into short film.
“Detour” has a cult following among fans of film noir, as it is
often considered to be one of the most gloomy and existentialist
examples of that genre. Famed critic Roger Ebert was a fan of
this film, writing, “ ‘Detour’ is an example of material finding
the appropriate form. Two bottom-feeders from the swamps of pulp
swim through the murk of low-budget noir and are caught grasping
in (the director’s) net. They deserve one another.” It’s a
must-see! Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this
dark drama from the past.
the Trump Haters:
man with kids robs a bank and doesn’t get caught. Afterward he
dies. Later, crime is solved. Do the kids get to keep the money?
for those who write “I’m not against Trump BUT…” give it a rest!
Let the man lead, preside (being elected President as he was),
and let him succeed or fail but let him try. The fact that BOTH
sides don’t cut him any slack proves he’s an agent of change,
and will “drain the swamp” much to the ire and fear and anger of
can you not like investment statements since he won? Or the
stock market peaks? Or the million+ with a job? More people
working, more money to help others via taxes and more to spend
helping the economy, etc. A leader who leads and doesn’t bow or
apologize is a welcome and needed change. Freedom OF religion
not freedom FROM religion- just as the Founding Fathers
complainers are the same ones, in my town, who secretly tacked
on all-day kindergarten despite its numerous defeat by the
voters. Drain the swamp! God Bless America and our President,
Donald Trump! Semper Fi!

Letter To The Editor
interest in town has always been the Transfer Station, as many
know. While going through the last seven years of the transfer
station budgets, I noticed the line for extermination was not
being used. The line has a dollar on it to keep it open.
2010 some infinitely wise individual decided that the “dump”
didn’t need to worry about RATS, after all, why would there be
RATS at the “dump” of all places?
have heard that someone said that we would always have RATS at
the “dump” so why waste money trying to get rid of them? Like I
said, infinite wisdom ...
checking further I find that we spend a little over $10,000 a
year on extermination for all our other town buildings. Seems
odd to say the least.
pair of RATS can produce 2,000 offspring in a year according to
Google. In seven years ... well, you can do the math.
Now, I’m thinking when it’s time to set the budget for next
year, we put some money on this line and start using it, or
maybe we could find a Pied Piper, ‘cause RATS are really, really
nasty. Granted, we will never be RAT-free at the transfer
station, but we should try to control them. By the way this line
was just $750.
Letter To The Editor
response to Tim Jandebeur’s recent letters in The Suncook Valley
Sun, The Northwood School Board wants to make it clear to the
public that we do not agree with the content of the letters,
these were not statements from the Northwood School Board, and
they should not have been signed as such. We find Mr.
Jandebeur’s letters to be inaccurate and defamatory and in no
way is he supported by the Northwood School Board in making
these statements. He does not have the authority to speak for
the board on this or any other matter. Any letters published or
statements made are his opinion and responsibility alone, and
not the opinion or statement of the Northwood School Board.

State law makes it the duty of the school board to provide, at
district expense, elementary and secondary education to all
pupils who reside in the district. School boards are required to
implement state laws pertaining to public education and to carry
out the rules of the State Board of Education. The school board
derives its authority from the New Hampshire Constitution, New
Hampshire statutes, and the rules of the State Board of
Education. The School Board functions through duly adopted
policies and actions approved at board meetings. Individual
board members have no authority to act on behalf of the district
or the board. No individual board member has authority to speak
or act for the entire board except when specifically designated
to do so by board action.
school board is making this statement to make it clear to the
members of the school board, district staff, and the public
generally that only the board acting as a whole has authority to
take official action for the district. The individual statements
of board members, whether they occur at a public meeting, in
social media, in letters to the editor or in any other fashion,
are the responsibility of individual board members and not the
