Farmers Market is a hit in Cranberry Cove!
by Holly Fairweather
The warm weather’s officially here which means the parks and trails are open again. Covesters can enjoy the fresh bounty from the coastal seas and farms on neighboring islands. We stopped in to check out the Farmers Market located on Roberts Way, right on the parking lot of Harper’s Pantry grocery store. The Farmers Market hosts fresh produce and fish as I mentioned before but also among the tents were artisans. Fine bottled wines from the Hollowstone Winery. Woven wicker goods and baskets from crafters. There was even fine jewelry made by a local Nepaug Nation entrepreneur. A good example is the cuts of fish and meat by local butchers Barry and Bart. Barry maintains a quaint butcher shop on the mainland, but every Wednesday, his younger fisherman brother Bart makes the ferry ride over to sell both fish and meats. As I spoke with him, he mentioned that there would be a special for customers willing to buy all they needed to make a delicious braised ox tail dish with wine. The recipe is available in the cuisine section of the paper.
I took the time to chat with a few of the vendors as they set up for the day. Tommy Giande, a local spice farmer, had his dried spices strung up for purchase. Let me tell ya - the smell was incredible. The Giandes also sell spices by the sack and in jars. I’m told they are great as dry rubs on meats. All around me vendors weren’t just setting up their wares, they were conversing about how best to combine their products so customers go home with something really great.
Another testament to the act of mutual business practice was when I observed Mrs. Amara Hollowstone walking a customer through her assorted culinary sauces, and she distinctly mentioned a fish sauce designed to pair well with the fish from Bart’s. Yes, that’s right. She made a canned fish sauce and marinade that works deliciously with a competing fishmonger! Clearly the goal is for all vendors and customers to walk away with something they feel good about, and it is clear from the sellers here that they alright know they are selling something great. The Cranberry Cove Farmers market is open every Wednesday from 11am - 4pm. Page 1
Cranberry Cove Gazette Springtime bloomin’ - Cove style!
by Sara Laney
Now Cranberry Cove’s definitely got its share of nasty winters...remember that evil blizzard? Thankfully once the weather breaks in our favor, the greenthumbs are out and about to beautify the islands! Not just the local farms are at work either. Everywhere you turn in Cranberry Cove, the fresh signs of spring greenery can be seen and better still, smelled! Driving around the business district of Machias Port, we found great flower beds planted in used fishing boats of all things. Along the paths up to the Amiot farms, we found a great example of locals farming for themselves. I can’t wait to see those carrots at the Farmers Market this Wednesday. The great foliage isn’t limited to just the goodness in folks’ yards either. The parks and ponds are looking great for spring as well. Take Aichi Pond for example. Going over the vinewrapped bridge, you’d never expect the tranquil lush beauty of nature on the other side.
Cranberry Cove Gazette Flames erupt in the Heritage Steakhouse! by Sara Laney
Shortly after 7pm in the evening on Sunday May 26th, smoke could be seen coming from the recently opened Heritage Steakhouse. Employees later identified as Lomasi LittleBoots, female, and Mikasi, male, were working in the steakhouseâ€™s kitchen when Mikasi apparently injured himself with a knife during food prep. Somewhere along the lines of contacting emergency services to come treat the wound, fire broke out from the stove and quickly spread along the woven decor and wooden structures. Police are still investigating the incident but have ruled out foul play at this point in time. The fire cause some serious smoke damage to the open kitchen and parts of the lower dining area which is laden with traditional artifacts and trinkets of the Nepaug Nation. As far as we understand, nothing of serious historical value was damaged in the fire. This latest setback comes only days after the Heritage Steakhouse opened to the public, receiving great reviews for their unique as well as traditional menu items and portion sizes. Many dishes are game meats caught wild in the nearby forests both on Cranberry Cove and on Bear Isle. No word yet on how soon the steakhouse will be reopening it doors, but the Gazette has learned that both employees pulled from the fire were treated for smoke inhalation, lacerations on the arm, and are in stable condition at this time.
Cranberry Cove Gazette Nova Mai’s Night Cap Hey there chickies! Enjoying the warm weather? I know I am! But it’s not about the daytime fun here on the Night Cap, oh no! It’s about the after hour dives! There were some great parties to be had at the Drunken Duck and even in places that aren’t regular hot spots! The Heritage Steakhouse opened on May 18th with a great shindig hosted by the KOVE’s own DJ Dione Bingyi! The food was epic...and big. They don’t skimp on the portions of venison here, chickies! All sorts of Covesters stopped by to taste the fine wild game of Cranberry Cove’s forests, cooking deliciously and sustainably! Right on Nepuag Nation! Speaking of the Nepaug Nation, I heard there’s going to be a wild strawberry harvesting event on Bear Isle. If it is anything like the last event with freshly made syrup, you can bet that yours truly will be pickin’ berries with the best of them!
Keep on keepin’ on, chickies!

DJ Sunday the musical rainbow by Holly Fairweather I’m back with another KOVE DJ segments for you all, darlings. Read on to learn all the dish on DJ Sunday! “Well of course the listeners want to know who is the mysteriously colorful Sunday? Tell us about yourself! Cranberry native or not? Stuff like that!” ““Well..I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I came to the Cove after getting a job offer..” “Oooh a transplant! Lovely! So...what got ya into working with radio and the like? Was there a burning bush moment?” “Um...burning..bush? I...took an internship in PA after college, then tried out LA next. It wasn’t easy..but I got an awesome gig out there for awhile. I..uh...found it easier to get to know people via radio..talking to them when they call to listen, ask for advice, or request a song. Believe it or not, I have my shy moments..” You’d never guess that the vibrant DJ Sunday is in fact rather shy, feeling at ease meeting and speaking to listeners from a distance. She went on to describe the inspiration for her colorful ever changing style as being drawn from the 80s cartoon Jem as well as reactionary to formerly being a “plain jane.” As you have heard, her music style is more top 40 and bands...but I saved the juiciest dish for last. “I see. Cool, darling! Now! For the juicy scoop - what was that infamous drunken broadcast about? I’ve heard of drunk texting but man oh man, you sounded like ya got hit by a few trucks of gin, dollface!” “Oh jeeze..I sounded that bad? I....was pretty hungover that morning. I had too many shots at the Heritage Steakhouse opening.. which, by the way..has great food. But I assure you and my..listeners that I am NOT an alcoholic..” The scoop right from the strawberry Sunday’s mouth!
Cranberry Cove Gazette ASK JULIET²
Straight Talk for the Cove I work part-time and have two children, both under five. We live in a small community and I feel terrible because I just don’t have the energy to volunteer at church or on any of the committees that are available. I often say no but I do read to the preschoolers once a month at the library. I see other mothers who have just as busy schedules doing many other things too. ~ Mariah Dear Mariah, you must remember that your family is your priority. Pace your life so you can fulfill your obligations to them completely. Careful and loving child raising is an inestimable contribution to your community and to the larger world. The library, the playground committee, and the town committees will all be there in five or ten years and at that time you will be able to give your experience and full attention to them. Our good friend of a number of years dated briefly then married a dangerous and mentally ill man. Our friend has changed over the past six months and is angry with us all for not embracing the man or the marriage. This man is inappropriate and scary and we have been at a loss on how to manage our friendship with her. We would want to be a lifeline when she comes to her senses. How can we have her in our lives but not him? When we told her he was not welcome in our home she was hurt and angry. Ideally we would like her to separate from him and be in a safer place. ~ Scared Sally
I have a very dear friend who has a father in his 80’s. Lately, I have noticed that her Dad is becoming more and more “forgetful”. I am worried because he still has a driver’s license and drives every day. I am very afraid that he will either get lost or cause a terrible accident. When I mentioned this to her she became upset with me and said that her Dad is very “independent” and is just fine. I’d hate to see anything bad happen. Can you suggest a way I can help her see that perhaps her Dad shouldn’t be driving alone any more? ~ Worried Will Dear Worried Will, that is a tricky one. Many people have a hard time realizing that Mom or Dad is getting old. They still see them through child-eyes. In many states one can anonymously call in a person’s name and your concerns to Department of Motor Vehicles and the person will be called in for an evaluation. It’s worth a try.
Sometimes people we think we know and care about turn out to have an unacceptable part that we cannot be around. A woman who marries a dangerous mentally ill man has a substantial lack of judgment. This woman is hurt and angry because her friends are not accepting the poor choices she has made. You can always reach out to her. Going out to lunch with her once in a while may be a way to keep in touch with her without bringing him into the picture. That said, I will say that one has little influence these days upon family members and even less upon friends. Friendship requires things in common and respect and affection. Commitment can make it last longer. If you are committed to give this woman a lifeline through occasional lunches you may be able to keep the crazy husband out of your life. From here though, I can’t tell how safe that would be. You need to evaluate the safety of continuing your relationship with her. Page 6

THE REAL BEAR ISLE Muwinwi Monihq or Bear Island plays an important part in the history of the Passamaquoddy where unaccounted numbers for men, women, and children died of smallpox. How did they get smallpox? Europeans came from Europe and brought their diseases, to which our ancestors had no immunity. It is a sad part of history. It is believed that the settlers that lived around the lake knew it was contagious and would affect the native community, so they made sure the infected ones were forced to go back to Bear Island and not land on the shore. Maine has lots of trees. It was good for paper companies who came, set up near rivers, and polluted the water. Georgia Pacific, who had acquired ownership of the island, later sold the island to another paper company. Later on luckily there were negotiations to buy the island from that new company, and finally it was returned to the Passamaquoddy Nation as a gift. Members from Penobscot and Passamaquoddy traveled to that sacred place to honor the return of the island. A sacred pipe ceremony was performed and songs were sung paying respect to our ancestors. Today when you approach the island by boat, you will see a white cross erected on the shoreline. The ancestors from the Bear Clan can now rest as the island has been returned to the Passamaquoddy Nation. Page 8

The Boy Who Nearly Became A Bear
A Passamaquoddy boy was lost in the woods. He was hungry and scared. He goes into a hole; a bear was in there. He is scared and he hides. The big bear was a female; she had little cubs with her, and when the boy came out, the big bear came close to him, [and] now and then touched him but did not hurt him. The Bear made some motion [for] him [to] do something, but the young man wouldn’t move so the bear went around him and started on ahead walking. At last the young fellow thought, “I will go with it,” and starts out with the bear. The Bear took him her den. Night time came, [and to] keep the young man from freezing, she put him together with her cubs. They ate nothing but berries that summer. When the young man saw got to [i.e. that he’d have to] eat all winter he put stuff he gathered into den so [he] could eat, and so big bear know he want to eat and help him and got enough [for him] to eat all winter. So they remained in the den and stayed all winter. The Bear didn’t eat. Come spring time, the bears emerge and would leave the young man in the cave. Naturally the young man left too but disliking the cold, he stayed in or near the cave playing with the cubs. In two years time, the Indians discovered this big bear and the young man . . . . and he told them not to kill his mother. When they found him his chest had begun grow hair like a bear. Well, on account of this young man, the bear got away as he had informed her that he’d seen the men coming. The young man was wild, he didn’t want go home and tried to get away. When he was brought to the settlement, the others looked after him, but he longed [to] go back into the woods. [It] was about a year before he got civilized, and when he got civilized every bit of chest hair fell. The elders believed, “If he stayed one year more with that bear, he might’ve turned into a bear.” At last the young man got married and his wife wanted some bear meat. They had deer, raccoon; he would kill any kind of meat. He could tell [from a] den without digging it whether a female or a male bear inside, how much smoke (steam) [rises from it; if it is] more strong from a female. He told his people, “If you see that, keep away from it; that will (may) be my mother,” and he wouldn’t kill any female bears. And this young man went on to kill many bears. Still his wife would ask her husband, “Why wont’ you kill female bears? They might taste different.” He didn’t pay attention. His wife don’t know his story; he keep that secret to himself. Thus she coaxed him to kill female bears over and over, finally growing troubled that he refused to kill female bears. “If you don’t bring a female bear, I won’t live with you any longer,” she declared. So he went out and killed a female bear, brought her home, and said, “Here it is. That will be last bear you eat. No more bear meat.” And it was the last one, too. That young man didn’t live much longer. He died, worrying until his last breath. He couldn’t think of nothing else but how he had killed his mother that had saved him in the woods. [Note: All of the following tales were found among the E. Tappan Adney Manuscripts in the Peabody Museum, Salem, Massachusetts. All of them were collected by Adney from Governor William Neptune of Pleasant Point Reservation, Maine, in the early 1940’s. Some of the manuscripts were in hurried pencil script, clearly Adney’s own field notes; others were in typescript but appear to be no more than typed-out field notes; still others had obviously been worked over. In one case I have included both the field note version and Adney’s later version of it, since both were available and the contrast between the two was interesting. I have corrected obvious misspellings and typing errors and have made punctuation and paragraphing changes where it seemed to me that they would make for easier reading. All other additions or changes are indicated in the manner described in the Introduction.]

1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided 4 extra-large eggs, at room temperature 1/3 cup grated lemon zest (6 to 8 large lemons) 3 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon kosher salt 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, divided 3/4 cup buttermilk, at room temperature 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Remove the cakes from the pans and set them on a rack set over a tray or sheet pan; spoon the lemon syrup over them. Allow the cakes to cool completely.

Submitted by Avon DeBaunter A sweet nutritional treat that guilt -free and good for you!
1 kg soft guavas Sugar (amount based on how much pulp you get out of the guavas)
Cut the guavas into quarters and remove the seeds. Put the seeds in a sieve and add a small amount of water. Rub into the sieve and press down with a flat spoon so as to extract the pulp surrounding the seeds, into a bowl kept below the sieve. Blend the guava pieces to s smooth pulp in your food processor. Measure how many cups of pulp you have - including the pulp removed from around the seeds. Put all the pulp into a large, flat, heavy-bottomed dish on a medium flame. Add sugar to the amount of one cup less than the number of cups of guava pulp. For example, if you had 6 cups of pulp, add 5 cups of sugar to it. Cook, stirring frequently, till it becomes hard to stir and the guava cheese begins to come away from the sides of the pan. Firm jelly is what you are looking for. Grease a platter and spoon the guava cheese onto it. Spread into a thick layer. Allow to cool a little and while still warm, cut into diamond or square shapes. You can roll the cut pieces in sugar so they arenâ€™t as sticky. When completely cooled, store in an air-tight container.

Braised Oxtails in Red Wine Sauce Submitted by Amara Hollowstone - DeBaunter
A sweet traditional treat thatâ€™s easy to make with fresh or store bought ingredients! And guilt-free to boot!
2 (750 milliliter) bottles dry red wine 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon onion powder salt and pepper to taste 5 pounds beef oxtail, cut into pieces 1/4 cup butter, divided 5 shallots, chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped 1 onion, chopped 2 carrots, chopped 2 celery ribs, chopped 2 sprigs fresh thyme 1 bay leaf 2 sprigs flat-leaf parsley 5 cups beef broth
Preparation: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Simmer the red wine in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until reduced by half. Meanwhile, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Dredge the oxtail in the seasoned flour, and shake off excess; set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a roasting pan over medium-high heat. Brown the oxtail on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove the oxtails from the pan and set aside. Turn the heat to medium-low and melt another 1 tablespoon of butter in the pan. Stir in the shallots, garlic, onion, carrots, and celery. Cook and stir until the vegetables have softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the thyme, bay leaf, parsley, beef broth, and reduced red wine. Place the browned oxtail on top of the vegetables in a single layer, then bring to a boil. Cover with a tight fitting lid or aluminum foil, then bake in preheated oven until the oxtail is very tender and nearly falling off the bone, 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Once the oxtail is tender, remove the meat to a serving dish, cover, and keep warm. Strain the remaining braising liquid through a mesh strainer into a saucepan. Simmer over medium-high heat until the sauce has reduced to 2 cups. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and pour over the oxtail to serve.

Cranberry Cove Gazette HOROSCOPES

Cranberry Cove Gazette HOROSCOPES
Libra 9/23 - 10/22
There are days when a little humility can be good for you, Libra, and this might be one of those days. It’s as if the planets are talking to you about sincerity and taking you far away from the trappings of superficiality and popularity. The things that are important to you today are much deeper concepts of humanity and compassion.
Capricorn 12/22 - 1/19
Capricorn, you should try to be tolerant of other people’s social and political positions. You may have to deal with certain people whose personal plans are jeopardized by events beyond their control. Don’t judge them. Don’t immediately defend one viewpoint without thinking how the situation affects the other person’s life.
This month you could experience some personal stress, both internally and when dealing with others.

Family and home issues will be a source of frustration and anxiety this month. You could be dealing with a stubborn person you live with or added responsibilities in relation to a parent or child.

You may have someone special in your life who is demonstrative and complimentary, making you feel great. An artistic or musical hobby will be a source of pleasure and you’ll work on improving your skills.
Today could discourage even the most ardent of passions, Sagittarius. Even if some people say you’re a bit cold, know that there’s a veritable volcano burning underneath all that ice. Today you may once again find yourself at a distance from your feelings, as if you were regaining control over your emotions. Be careful about being too cynical about things.
