Sandy Cleanup a Massive Task Growing trash piles in N.Y., N.J. strain sanitation resources

By the Numbers

Just a few months ago, the parking lot at Jacob Riis Park on New York City’s Rockaway seashore was filled with happy beachgoers. Now, it is home to a mountain of misery from Superstorm Sandy — a growing pile of garbage containing everything from mangled appliances, splintered plywood and sodden drywall to shreds of clothing and family photos. The two-story-high pile, three quarters of a mile long and fed by an endless caravan of dump trucks, is just part of a round-theclock operation along hundreds of miles of coastline to clear away the mangled mess of homes, cars and boats so the rebuilding can begin. Three weeks in, it is an effort that has strained the resources of sanitation departments and landfill operators and caused headaches and heartache for thousands of families in the sprawling disaster zone.

New York

Sanitation crews are faced with the task of removing large piles of garbage, like this three-story-tall one in Long Beach, N.J., from areas hard-hit by Superstorm Sandy.

The lucky have only had to empty their basements of soggy belongings. Others have been forced to strip their floodravaged homes down to the studs.

The lucky have only had to empty their basements of soggy belongings. Others have been forced to strip their flood-ravaged homes down to the studs and pile drywall, furniture, clothing and appliances on the sidewalk. New Jersey shore towns have been adding to big piles of rubble just like the one at Jacob Riis. One of the biggest ones, in Long Branch, reaches nearly three sto-

In the three weeks since Superstorm Sandy, New York City alone has removed an estimated 271,000 tons of wreckage from flooded neighborhoods. That doesn’t include the downed limbs and trunks of some 26,000 damaged trees. As of Friday, auto insurance companies had reported storm damage to at least 52,000 vehicles, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. (AP)

ries into the sky. Up and down the coast, sanitation crews have been working seven days a week, including holidays, since the storm hit, starting before dawn and continuing into the night, when the task of handling nail-studded debris gets dicey. Some of the workers are spending their days off cleaning out their own ravaged homes. “You’ve got to remember a lot of our employees live here,” said city Public Works Commissioner Jim LaCarrubba. “We asked a lot of them, and they’ve stepped up.” DAVID B.

Elmo Actor Quits Amid Scandal Group: Sell Birth-Control Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash resigned from “Sesame Street” on Tuesday amid allegations he sexually abused underage boys, bringing an end to a 28-year career in which he turned the furry red monster into one of the most beloved characters on TV and in toy stores. “Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work ‘SesaSingleton me Street’ is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer,” the 52-yearold performer said in a statement. “I am deeply sorry to be leaving and am looking forward to resolving these personal matters privately.” His departure came as a 24-yearold college student, Cecil Singleton, sued Clash for more than $5 mil-

Backstory Kevin Clash was a young puppeteer at “Sesame Street” in the mid-1980s when he was assigned a little-used puppet now known as Elmo and turned him into a star. Clash also served as the show’s senior Muppet coordinator and Muppet captain. In 2006, he published an autobiography, “My Life as a Furry Red Monster,” and he was the subject of the 2011 documentary “Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey.” Episodes previously taped with Clash as Elmo will presumably continue well into 2014. Other puppeteers have been trained to perform as Elmo, Sesame Workshop said. (AP)

lion Tuesday, accusing the actor of engaging in sexual behavior with him when he was 15. Singleton said Clash trolled gay chat lines for underage boys and met them for sex. It was the second such allegation in a little more than a week. On Nov. 12, a man in his 20s said he had sex with Clash at age 16. A day later, though, the man recanted, saying their relationship was adult and consensual.

Clash did not address the new allegations Tuesday. He said previously he had an adult and consensual relationship with the first accuser and acknowledged that he is gay. Singleton’s lawyer, Jeff Herman, said he had been contacted by two other potential victims and expects additional legal action. Sex with a person under 17 is a felony in New York if the perpetrator is 21 or older. FR A ZIER MOORE (AP)

Congolese Rebels Seize Strategic Regional City Rebel forces in Congo on Tuesday seized control of Goma, a strategic provincial capital in the nation’s resource-rich east, despite the presence of U.N. peacekeepers in the area.

Lessons Linger in Gaza New Israeli offensive evokes reminders of deadly conflict in ’08 Gaza City, Gaza Strip Sleep away from windows, stock up on food, get the family car off the street — these are lessons Gazans have learned in previous rounds of fighting between Israel and the territory’s Hamas rulers. Now, some are adding “change houses” to the list as Israel targets homes of Hamas activists, making

it harder to guess where missiles might fall. Such airstrikes killed 24 civilians over the weekend. For ordinary Gazans, moving sometimes doesn’t help. On Sunday, Sami Dawood evacuated his wife and three children from their Gaza City apartment after a missile hit the roof. They moved to the home of his fatherin-law near Palestine Stadium. Missiles hit the stadium Monday. “Now we are back home again,” said the 40-year-old Dawood. Ola Hani, 31, said that since the last Gaza war four years ago, she

keeps a week’s worth of supplies. “Even in normal days, I don’t touch any of it, only when I have a chance to replace it,” she said.

Caught on Film Photographers at Gaza hospitals are part of a different Hamas battle: They are documenting deaths and injuries in the fighting. Their leader, Ashraf al-Kidra, keeps journalists updated with casualties. “We learned a lesson from the last war,” al-Kidra said. Casualty figures in 2008 were disputed: Palestinians said most

Syrian Rebels, in Need of Arms, Seize Military Base Base of the 46th Regiment, Syria After a nearly two-month siege, Syrian rebels overwhelmed a large military base in the north of the country and made off with tanks, armored vehicles and truckloads of munitions that rebel leaders say will give them a boost in the fight against President Bashar Assad’s army.

The weekend capture of the base of the Syrian army’s 46th Regiment is a sharp blow to the government’s efforts to roll back rebels gains and shows a rising level of organization among opposition forces. More important than the base’s fall, however, are the weapons the rebels found inside. “There has never been a battle before with this much booty,” said Gen. Ahmad al-Faj of the reb-

els Joint Command, a grouping of rebel brigades. Al-Faj said all soldiers inside were either killed or captured in the attack, which began Saturday. He said he didn’t know how many were killed, but that the rebels had taken about 50 prisoners. The Syrian government does not respond to requests for comment on military affairs and said nothing about the base’s capture. (AP)

A diplomatic push to end Israel’s nearly weeklong offensive in the Gaza Strip gained momentum Tuesday. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton held a late-night meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said his country would be a “willing partner” to a cease-fire with Hamas. Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi predicted that airstrikes would soon end. The Israeli death toll rose to five Tuesday. More than 130 Palestinians have been killed. (AP)

of about 1,400 people killed were civilians, but Israel gave a lower figure and said most were militants.

Resilient Residents But after more than a decade of onand-off fighting with Israel, Gazans are not easily shaken. Hamas appears to have solid support for the attacks on Israel. Many here expressed satisfaction that Israelis should get a taste of the fear Gazans know so well. Jokes have even popped up on social media. In one, an Egyptian broadcaster with a music program asks a listener what he would like to hear. Answer: “The sound of the air raid siren in Tel Aviv.” IBR AHIM BAR Z AK AND K ARIN L AUB (AP)

Kabul, Afghanistan For former CIA director David Petraeus, it was a one-year stint as top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. His replacement is scheduled to leave next year after 18 months in the job. And now the sex scandal that draws them together — Petraeus’ career toppled and Marine Gen. John Allen’s possibly on hold — also has placed greater attention to the quick turnover of American battlefield chiefs in the 11-year war. Nearly two dozen generals have commanded coalition troops since the U.S. invasion in 2001, with five U.S. generals leading in the past five years alone. “The learning curve is pretty steep,” said retired Lt. Gen. David Barno, who commanded U.S. forces in Afghanistan in 2003 and 2004. There is no firm evidence the Pentagon’s revolving door in Afghanistan has posed significant obstacles for U.S. troops, but some analysts and former military officers say that rotating generals so quickly creates a disconnect between the commanders and

Revolving Door Here’s a look at the past five commanders of the NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan, all U.S. generals:

Gen. Dan McNeill leads from February 2007 to June 2008. Gen. David McKiernan takes over from June 2008 to June 2009. Gen. Stanley McChrystal steps in from June 2009 to June 2010. Gen. David Petraeus serves in the top post from July 2010 to July 2011. Gen. John Allen takes over in July 2011 and is currently leading the war effort. (AP)

their Afghan allies. Commanders also have to deal with billions of dollars in funds and the complexities of handing over security to the Afghans by the end of 2014. But “the good aspect to this is that it brings a fresh set of eyes,” said Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institution in Washington. “It’s not realistic to have commanders serve a whole lot longer than, say, Gen. Allen ... as these folks get tired.” (AP)

Nearly 1 in 3 motorists who use the Intercounty Connector without an E-ZPass transponder don’t pay the toll later, making Maryland’s newest and most expensive highway home to a toll-violation rate four times higher than the state average. Individual motorists racked up as much as $1,418 each in unpaid tolls after driving on the ICC, or Route 200, as many as 430 times during the first six months of this year. A rental-car company owed $4,263 in ICC toll debt, while a construction company accrued $2,241 for 65 unpaid trips during that time. The new 18.8-mile highway between Gaithersburg and Laurel has added quickly — and relatively significantly — to the state’s toll losses. The ICC accounts for 5 percent of the state’s toll revenue. However, the nearly $670,000 in unpaid tolls between January and June amounted to almost 30 percent of all tolls that went uncollected statewide during that time, according to figures obtained from the Maryland Transportation Authority. The ICC’s problem is twofold: As an all-electronic road with no toll booths, the ICC can charge tolls only by deducting them from E-ZPass transponders or by mailing a photo of the vehicle tag along with

The Intercounty Connector is the Washington region’s first all-electronic toll road.

an invoice for a higher “video toll” to the vehicle’s registered owner. However, Maryland’s tolling authority doesn’t use the kinds of enforcement measures — vehicle registration suspensions and court referrals — that tolling experts

say are the most effective in getting people to pay the mailed bills. State Sen. Catherine Pugh, D-Baltimore, chairwoman of the Senate Finance Committee’s transportation subcommittee, said she plans to hold a hearing early next year on the state’s toll-collection methods. “We can’t afford to leave money on the table,” Pugh said. “The ICC was a very expensive road to build.” As the ICC on Thursday marks the first anniversary of its full opening, its violation rate is noteworthy because it is the Washington region’s first all-electronic toll road.

Fight Over Union Station Vision Escalator plan pits developers against preservationists

SAR AH HAL Z ACK (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Sen. Warner To Pass on Governor Run Richmond

JEFFREY MACMILLAN/CAPITAL BUSINESS

Washington A short-term plan to remake Union Station’s Main Hall may be running afoul of a new long-term vision for a dramatic expansion of the station. Community groups and historic preservationists have been analyzing a plan by Ashkenazy Acquisition, the company that manages retail space in Union Station, to remove the center cafe in the Main Hall and open up two holes in the floor to provide escalator access to the lower levels.

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner says he will not seek a return to Virginia’s governor’s mansion. Democrat Warner said Tuesday that while he enjoyed his term as governor, he will not leave the Senate to seek another four years as governor. He said too much of the nation’s business needs to be addressed for him to leave Washington. A Quinnipiac University poll last week showed Warner would dominate a gubernatorial race with either announced Republican, Ken Cuccinelli or Bill Bolling. The poll showed that with Terry McAuliffe as the only announced Democrat in the race, next fall’s election would be anybody’s game. Warner governed from 2002 to 2006. (AP)

The Earliest Early Birds Black Friday shoppers are already lining up at stores across the country. At far left, friends and family members in Victorville, Calif., hold a spot Monday after setting up camp the day before. At left, Denise SmithLad brought her 6-year-old grandson, Jordan Smith, to get a good spot Monday in Cockrell Hill, Texas. But they weren’t the earliest: Last Friday, almost a week ahead, Rick Hilton, 21, arrived at the Best Buy in Tampa that he has shopped at since he was in ninth grade. He said is looking for deals on a computer and flat-screen TV for his grandmother. By Saturday afternoon, two more shoppers had claimed a spot behind him. (AP)

An Extra Helping of Sales Some are crying fowl as more stores use Thanksgiving Day to kick off Black Friday Washington At this rate, we may have to rename Thanksgiving “Black Thursday.” Big-box retailers such as Walmart, Toys R Us and Sears are opening their doors at 8 p.m. Thursday — just as Thanksgiving dinner tables are being cleared in many homes. Target will follow suit at 9 p.m., enticing shoppers out of their homes during the final football game of the day. Not everybody is happy about it, but retailers are scrambling to make the most of what is expected to be a mediocre shopping season — even if it means cutting into a holiday traditionally reserved for family gatherings and decadent meals. “There’s a segment of the population who wants to drop their drumstick and immediately pick up a door-buster,” said Brian Hanover, a spokesman for Sears. “Our customers kept telling us they wanted more flexible Black Friday shopping hours.” Last year, when stores opened as

early as 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, it sparked protests from workers and shoppers who worried that there soon wouldn’t be any holiday left. This year, as retailers start even earlier, similar protests are under way: Target employees have started a petition to “save Thanksgiving,” and Walmart workers say they are gearing up for protests on Black Friday. “It’s ridiculous,” said Anthony Hardwick, a former Target employee who led protest efforts last year. “We’re getting rid of Thanksgiving dinner, and for what? For a $300 flat-screen TV?” But retailers think they have found a new pocket of holiday shoppers — those who aren’t eager to wake up early Friday for the traditional discounts but are willing to forgo Thanksgiving dessert. Perhaps the earliest door-busters will begin at 6 a.m. Thanksgiving, when Kmart will begin selling high-definition plasma TVs for $199.99. Retailers say last year’s earlier openings drew a younger crowd of shoppers who prefer to stay up late rather than

wake up early to snag deep discounts. The intrusion into Thanksgiving comes as retailers try to offset yet another expected year of tepid holiday sales. Stores are looking for new ways to bring in consumers, and they won’t be satisfied with just one visit. Walmart, Target and others are staggering their Black Friday promotions, launching sales of such coveted products as iPads at specific times in hopes that shoppers will return again and again to get the lowest prices. “If [customers] want to go home, we’d love to have them come back at 5 a.m. the next morning,” said Duncan Mac Naughton, Walmart’s chief merchandising and marketing officer. Even so, analysts say earlier opening times may not necessarily translate into higher revenue. But as long as demand for Thanksgiving Day shopping remains high, retailers say they

Redskins QB Robert Griffin III expects to see lots of “familiar faces” in Texas.

RGIII Going Home For Turkey Day The Washington Redskins’ season opener in New Orleans represented a homecoming of sorts for rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, whose family hails from that area, where he spent a portion of his childhood. But this week Griffin returns to Texas, the place he truly considers home. The son of two military parents, Griffin was born in Japan, but his family settled in Copperas Cove, Texas, when he was a child. Griffin starred as a high school football and track star at Copperas Cove High School, and then played at Baylor in Waco. He went on to win the Heisman Trophy and go second overall in the draft to the Redskins last spring. Getting to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Cowboys Stadium in Arlington on Thanksgiving carries great significance, Griffin says. “It’ll be fun. I’ll get to see a lot of familiar faces,” Griffin said. “I have a lot of fans down there who got to see me grow up in Copperas Cove, Texas, and then go to college at Baylor. It’ll definitely be a good homecoming. More so a homecoming than New Orleans was. But, certainly looking forward to having fun. We’re going there with one goal in mind, and that’s to win.” MIKE JONES (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, left, says his friendship with Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, right, doesn’t diminish their rivalry.

Friendly Rivals Owners Jones and Snyder click, even if their teams don’t Redskins Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder are friends. They do things like ride on yachts together, and film pizza commercials toget her. Some D.C. fans have reacted negatively to this friendship, worrying that a Redskins owner can’t

dream of squashing the Cowboys while simultaneously being close friends with their owner. Jones was actually asked this week if the Redskins can still be bitter rivals, given his friendship with Snyder. “They are, yes, t hey are,” he said during a radio appearance. “My friendship with him has nothing to do with that. As a matter of fact, have we not all had brothers, sisters, friends where the rivalry or who gets it

is more intense than if you were not friends? That becomes the case here. “Fi rst of a l l, t h is r iva l r y [began] long before him and long before me. Secondly, it’s bigger than both of us put together. So, having said all of that, I just want to figure out a way for the

Cowboys to beat the Redskins. Of course, if it were the Giants or the Eagles, those are big too, but this Redskins thing is something that’s got more stories, and so storied.” Jones also talked at length about the threat posed by Robert Griffin III, and the improvement Washington’s offense has enjoyed this season. “My goodness, with their quarterback and what they’re doing offensively … we’re gonna have to work to come out of here with a win,” Jones said. “I see a guy that is very aware and has the ability to put such pressure on the defense, because he prefers to make time, buy time to throw the ball. They’ve not only coached him to do that, but he prefers it. He’s not a preferred runner, like Michael Vick. He’s a guy that’s using all that skill, all that quickness, all that speed to basically get an opportunity to throw the ball, and that’s what you want.

“This rivalry [began] long before me. ... It’s bigger than both of us put together.” — JERRY JONE S, COWBOYS OWNER, EXPLAINING WHY HE AND REDSKINS OWNER DAN SNYDER CAN BE FRIENDS, ALTHOUGH THEIR TEAMS ARE RIVALS.

“He’s really more than I think anybody would have thought he would be coming out. The Redskins have a really top quarterback. We know about him here in Texas, we all do. He’s a good one right now, and will make a HUGE difference in our game Thursday. ... To contain him with his quickness and speed and yet at the same time try to keep his receivers covered is a huge challenge. He really has an accurate arm and a good arm. It’ll be a big challenge.” DAN STEINBERG (THE WASHINGTON POST )

New Faces: The Washington Redskins have placed safety Brandon Meriweather on injured reserve and signed cornerback Jerome Murphy. Murphy joined the team Tuesday as the Redskins prepared for Thursday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Murphy was a third-round pick by the St. Louis Rams in 2010. He has played in two games this year with the New Orleans Saints and one with the Detroit Lions. (AP)

An open letter from D.C. United The 2012 MLS season was a wonderful roller coaster ride which, sadly, came to an end one match too early.

Thank you to all of the community organizations that work with us to make D.C. a better place to live;

All of us at D.C. United are extremely excited about our future. We have a wonderful, young group of players who will be the core of our team for many years to come. They were a group that fought for each other, and the club, against all odds, to make it to the conference championship. They have had a taste of success, and they can’t wait to get to work to achieve even more.

Thank you, to the District Government, the Mayor, and the Council for all of their support – and especially for their commitment to work with us to build a new, state of the art stadium for D.C. United, here in our home.

2013 will be a great year for our club, and we want the entire community to be there with us. Season ticket plans are on sale now and we look forward to seeing you next season. This week is the right time for us to say “thank you” to so many who were key to our resurgence this year: Thank you to Events DC and the staff of RFK Stadium; Thank you to the Board of Trade, the Greater Washington Sports Alliance and the Chamber of Commerce, and all their members, for their support;

Finally, thank you to our supporters. It is difficult to express what your unwavering support means to us. In good times and bad, in sun and rain and snow, you are there for us. As we said in the locker room on Sunday, we are a team of 20,000 and more.

No One Can Hold Us Back

WE ARE UNITED Jason Levien, Managing Partner Erick Thohir, Managing Partner Will Chang, General Partner Kevin Payne, President & CEO & the entire D.C. United organization

got as far as we could.” In many ways, 2012 was a rousing success for United. The club returned to the postseason for the first time in five years and was a game away from hosting the MLS Cup. D.C. did not lose at home after opening night, with the club’s preseason quest to make RFK Stadium a fortress going fulfilled.

Still, D.C. is left wanting more. “It’s tough to call [the season] a success, because this is still about winning championships,” coach Ben Olsen said. “But I do think it’s a success in the fact that we believe in the foundation here now, and it’s a success in that we got a community and fan base and organization behind us again and

Coach Wittman: No Answers Wizards The Wizards have lost nine games in a row to start the season, a franchise worst. Coach Randy Wittman is as frustrated as anyone, and his comments Monday night after the Wizards’ 96-89 loss to the Indiana Pacers were both sad and hilarious. But mostly sad. “I believe these guys can win. I don’t have doubts. I come in here every day, thinking: ‘This is the night. I feel good,’ ” Wittman said. “I might be dumb.” Oscar Wilde once said that the basis of optimism is sheer terror. Sounds about right. Here’s Wittman on his lineups: “I don’t know who to start, who to play, who not to play,” Wittman

What if star and captain Dwayne De Rosario had been healthy for the entire postseason? What if Chris Pontius had not aggravated a groin injury in the opening minutes of the MLS Eastern Conference final’s first leg? What if Andy Najar had not been suspended for the final three games of the playoffs? In the end, the answers to those questions are inconsequential for D.C. United. The team’s run in the MLS playoffs ended in the conference finals when Sunday’s draw against the Houston Dynamo sealed a 4-2 aggregate defeat, and now it’s all about finding perspective and moving forward. “T hings like t hat happen throughout the year — guys get sent off and injuries show up,” goalkeeper Bill Hamid said. “We adapted, and we did well and we

Here’s a look back at some of D.C. United’s top moments from 2012: April 22: Chris Pontius’ hat trick vs. New York. Pontius raised his game to new heights this season, with the launchpad being his first-career hat trick in a 4-1 rout of the Red Bulls. Aug. 29: Dwayne De Rosario joins the 100 Club. D.C.’s captain became the seventh player in league history to reach 100 career goals in a 2-2 draw against New York. Oct. 20: Team clinches first playoff berth in five years. When Lewis Neal’s goal trickled into the back of the net in stoppage against the Columbus Crew, it set off a celebration five years in the making in the RFK Stadium stands Nov. 8: United eliminates Red Bulls from playoffs.

If I had that answer right now, I’d be a genius.” The starters, who combined for 31 points on 8-for-37 shooting and half of the team’s 10 turnovers, left Wittman in search of answers. “If I had a cellphone, I’d be calling the waiver wire trying to find another body,” he said. No Wizards starter shot better than 50 percent. “Guys are definitely frustrated,” guard A.J. Price said. “We know we’re better than what we’re showing out there. For whatever reason we haven’t been able to put together a full 48 minutes, so it is frustrating, but it’s a long season, and we’ve got to keep on fighting.” (THE WASHINGTON POST )

a good feeling around the club.” United is poised for more success in 2013. With De Rosario, 34, set to return fully fit after his MCL sprain and the likes of Hamid, Najar, Pontius, Nick DeLeon and Perry Kitchen — all 25 or younger — expected back, the pieces are in place for a sustainable run toward the club’s fifth MLS Cup title. “The foundation is strong,” Hamid said. “You look at the core and the young guys in this group, it’s extremely strong, it’s one of the strongest in the league. When we have something like that, you can build off of it.” For Olsen, the biggest challenge this offseason — aside from strengthening the squad through personnel moves — is maintaining that hunger and warding off any complacency. “We still have something to prove, and that thing to prove is that we can be champions,” Olsen said. “I hope that sticks with them and we’re not thinking that we’ve arrived.” AVI CREDITOR (FOR E XPRESS)

What made you want to throw yourself a party for your first 25 years in comedy? I made it a [Sandy] benefit. If you make something a benefit, you can do whatever you want. But it’s going to be a show; it’s not going to be people worshipping me.

You live in the East Village. What was it like during Sandy? The first day I just went for a long walk to try to go past the border of where there were lights. I ended up in a hotel bar and ran into another comedian who was also escaping.

Do you approach jokes on Twitter differently from ones you tell onstage? I need jokes for my act more than I need tweets. If I get an idea, I go, “Is this stageworthy or is this just tweet-worthy?” and I take it from there.

You’re one of the few fairly well-known comedians who don’t have a TV show or a podcast. Is anything in the works? I did buy a microphone to make a podcast. I do have the microphone. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)

RECENTLY SOUGHT HELP GETTING SOBER AND ALSO RECORDED A NEW RECORD

T. COUTURE

Exactly 25 years ago this month, Todd Barry did his first open-mic night at a Miami comedy club. A year later, he moved to New York City, and he’s never looked back. The 48-year-old, who has appeared on “Louie” and “Flight of the Conchords,” will celebrate his silver anniversary with a show in Brooklyn next month (rescheduled because of Superstorm Sandy). Before that, he’ll perform two shows in Arlington this weekend.

From left, High on Fire bassist Jeff Matz , singer/guitarist Matt Pike and drummer Des Kensel are back on the road.

Shredding While Sober The men of High on Fire tone down the partying to keep the beat steady Music Veteran stoner-metal band High on Fire released its sixth album this past spring, the blistering “De Vermis Mysteriis,” an ambitious collection about Jesus’ timetraveling twin brother. As the Oakland, Calif., band enjoyed glowing reviews and sold-out shows, however, it faced one of the hardest disappointments of its 15-year career. Right before the band embarked

on its U.S. tour to support the album, singer/guitar player Matt Pike entered rehab for alcohol abuse. All dates were canceled. Pike is actually the second member of High on Fire to get sober. In early 2011, bass player Jeff Matz went through rehab. “He’s a sharper player now,” drummer Des Kensel says of Matz. “He’s more with it, not hung over and sleeping all day.” Kensel hopes Pike ultimately gains a similarly renewed spirit for High on Fire’s rescheduled U.S. dates this winter. On a recent short tour of Australia, says the drummer, “I could tell he was

Inside Tracks “Samsara,” a four-minute instrumental jam on “De Vermis Mysteriis,” is a mellower, more familiar version of High on Fire than the opening rager, “Serum of Liao.” In Buddhist teachings, samsara refers to the everyday agitated mind that humans suffer in this mortal world. The song’s chill groove is a nice balm.

“Sometimes, before a show, we would gather around and do a group shot or something like that,” Kensel says. “It was like we were all feeling like [expletive] and needed a drink.” To record the new disc, the trio booked studio time in Massachusetts, about as far from Oakland as they could get. “There are just too many distractions here [in Oakland],” Kensel says. “Kids, wives, girlfriends, bars. We had to do it somewhere else or we thought this record would never come out.” Kensel himself isn’t sober, “but I’m not ragin’,” he says. However, playing High on Fire’s very precise brand of metal night after night and year after year has taken a different toll on the drummer. “I’ve already had two surgeries,” he says. In addition to a spine fusion, he had orthoscopic surgery on his shoulder to repair damage caused by pounding the skins so relentlessly. “The music is definitely demanding,” Kensel says. “It’ll physically wear you out. So you have to balance fun with taking care of your body. That’s your tool.” STEPHEN M.

ii It was possible, more than a century ago, to buy a $100 stamp. Those and other high-denomination stamps were primarily issued to newspaper publishers who were mailing bulk papers. NATIONAL POSTAL MUSEUM

The Postal Museum is fascinated by “disaster mail” — pieces of canceled mail that survived calamities.

The museum is also obsessed with Owney, the unofficial canine mascot of the Railway Mail Service in the late

The folk music Prudencia has devoted her life to is an oral tradition, shifting based on the whim of the performer or the reaction of the listener — much like “Prudencia Hart” itself. “The sense of it being slightly improvised — there’s a reality to that because we’re adapting it to each venue and it does change for every audience,” Wilson says. Prudencia and her beloved ballads are at home in a bar, Wilson says. “It’s the idea of a Scottish céilidh — a night where there might be dancing, there might be singing, there might be a story. The atmosphere generally does involve having a drink.” The setting raises one obvious question: Do drunken spectators ever get a little too involved? No, Wilson says. “Audiences are very sensitive. They pick up very quickly what’s appropriate and what isn’t.” “What’s appropriate” is sometimes making a beautiful mess. When the actors call for a snowstorm, the audience fills the air with those bits of white paper napkin, falling for the theatrical illusion they created themselves.

Owney the dog is an object of great fascination for the museum.

In “Hitchcock,” Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) directs “Psycho.” Therefore, this movie spoils the end of “Psycho.”

Dial ‘N’ for Nerdy ‘Hitchcock’ is teeming with allusions aimed at film buffs. You can nod knowingly, too! Screen Like a kids show that continually winks at an adult audience, “Hitchcock,” opening Friday, contains a number of in-jokes meant to make film nerds chuckle. Here’s a guide to the laughter:

Hopkins buried under prosthetics, recounts the making of 1960’s “Psycho.” Throughout, people fret that the movie will be “another ‘Vertigo.’ ” That 1958 film didn’t do great at the box office and critical reception was mixed. Now “Vertigo” is near-universally considered Hitchcock’s best film; this year, it ousted “Citizen Kane” from the top spot on the British Film Institute’s Top 50 Greatest Films of All Time list.

The Profile Hitchcock was one of the first filmmakers to embrace the storytelling potential of television, most notably

Windows One of the most prominent winkw ink-nudge-nudge tropes in “Hitchcock” is that Alfred often peers through window shades at unknowing subjects. That’s a nod to “Rear Window,” Hitch’s 1954 film about a wheelchair-bound

camera functions as a man’s eye, rendering the women it captures as passive objects. She considered “Rear Window” one of the best examples of her theory. Indeed, Hitchcock’s entire body of work is a lesson in how to look at women, ideally young blondes. In “Hitchcock,” director Sacha Gervasi uses the camera as Hitch often did, drifting over women’s bodies as if to tell the audience, “hey, check THIS out.” In a cheeky turn of events, Gervasi doesn’t focus on prototypical “Hitchcock blonde” Janet Leigh (Scarlett Johansson), instead lingering on the 67-year-old Helen Mirren.

Running through Dec. 18, the series celebrates Sherlock’s 125th birthday with films old (with Basil Rathbone) and new (with Robert Downey Jr.), the 1988 parody “Without a Clue” and, on Dec. 1, the silent “Sherlock Holmes” starring John Barrymore — a film that was thought to be lost, only to be rediscovered in the 1970s and restored in the past decade.

Glazed Turnips With Dried Fruits

RECIPE BY LONNIE ZOELLER, CHEF OF VINOTECA (1940 11TH ST. NW; 202-332-9463, VINOTECADC.COM)

Turnips, a typically underappreciated root veggie, get their due in Vinoteca chef Lonnie Zoeller’s dish — a twist on a kale-and-dried-fruits side ($6) on the restaurant’s fall menu. “The turnips add a crispy element,” and their zippy, slightly spicy flavor balances out the sugary profile of the dried fruit. The garlic-butter glaze adds a savory dimension. “To me, the dish represents fall heading into winter,” Zoeller says. 1 whole garlic bulb Olive oil, drizzle 2 sticks unsalted butter 2 pounds baby turnips, greens trimmed and saved 1 tablespoon dry currents 1 tablespoon dry golden raisins 1 tablespoon canola oil 2 tablespoons pork, chicken, beef or vegetable stock Salt, to taste Black pepper, to taste

Makes about four servings. Make the garlic butter: Heat oven to 275 degrees. Trim off the top of the garlic, cover with olive oil and place in a saute pan. Add a spoonful of water, cover with foil and place in the oven to roast for about an hour, until garlic is soft and golden. Remove the garlic from the bulb and puree in a food processor with unsalted butter. Set aside 2 tablespoons of garlic butter for the recipe (save the rest to spread on bread). In a medium pot, place the turnips in enough water to cover and then salt generously. Bring to

a very light simmer, until a paring knife can penetrate the turnips and be removed easily, then place the turnips on a towel to dry. When cool, cut them into wedges. In a small pot, lightly simmer currents and golden raisins in ¼ cup of water until soft. Cool fruit in a bowl; reserve water for sauce. In a large saute pan on medium/ high heat, heat canola oil and lightly brown turnips on several sides, seasoning with salt and pepper. Add garlic butter. Toast slightly, until butter starts to bubble. Add the turnip greens, followed by the fruit, with a little of the reserved water and the stock. Continue cooking at medium heat until the greens are wilted and the sauce has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon (4 to 5 minutes). Serve immediately.

Roasted Chestnut Cornbread Stuffing

RECIPE FROM FOUNDING FARMERS (1924 PENNSYLVANIA AVE. NW, 202-822-8783; 12505 PARK POTOMAC AVE., POTOMAC, MD., 301-340-8783; WEAREFOUNDINGFARMERS.COM) AND FARMERS FISHERS BAKERS (3000 K ST. NW; 202-298-8783, FARMERSFISHERSBAKERS.COM)

This stuffing — which will be served as part of Founding Farmers’ and Farmers Fishers Bakers’ Thanksgiving Day menu ($35; noon to 8 p.m.) — takes advantage of chestnuts’ limited seasonal availability to add a nutty flavor. Chunks of bacon lend salty richness. The dish may be prepared a day ahead — just don’t bake it until an hour or so before you plan to serve the meal. 1⁄ pound day-old white 2 bread, in 1⁄4-inch pieces 1⁄ cup chestnuts, shelled, 2 roasted and roughchopped 1⁄ cup raw, thick-cut 2 bacon, in 1⁄4-inch pieces 6 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 cups celery, diced 11⁄2 cups yellow onion, diced 2 tablespoons poultry seasoning 2 tablespoons rubbed dried sage 3 ⁄ pound baked 4 cornbread, crumbled 2 tablespoons maple syrup 11⁄2 teaspoons black pepper 2 teaspoons kosher salt 2 tablespoons lemon juice 21⁄2 cups chicken broth 1⁄ cup fresh parsley, 2 rough-chopped

Serves six or seven people. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread white bread on cookie

sheet and place in oven to dry. Do not brown. Remove from oven and set aside. Spread chestnuts on a cookie sheet and roast for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. In a large, deep skillet, saute bacon over moderately high heat, stirring until browned, about 10 minutes. Add butter, celery and onions and cook, stirring until softened, about 5 minutes. Add poultry seasoning and sage and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from stove and let cool enough to handle. In a large bowl, toss together cornbread, white bread, bacon mixture, maple syrup, black pepper, salt, lemon juice, chicken broth, roasted chestnuts and parsley. Cover and refrigerate until ready to heat. Transfer to a casserole dish, cover with foil and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until top is golden brown. Remove from oven and serve.

Bacon Popcorn Balls

A mainstay at EatBar, executive chef Nate Waugaman’s caramel- and bourbon-flavored baconflecked popcorn balls ($3) would make a novel pre- or post-Thanksgiving dinner snack. Waugaman says the treat was inspired by the homemade caramel popcorn balls he received while trick-or-treating as a kid. This version is more grown-up: Waugaman uses Maker’s Mark bourbon to add a rich, boozy flavor that holds its own against smoky bacon. The shortcut here is built into the recipe: Start with popped popcorn.

Broccoli Rabe

Makes 40 to 50 golf ball-sized balls: In a saucepan, mix the sugar with enough water until its texture resembles wet sand. Cook over moderate heat until the sugar caramelizes (do not stir). After it’s caramelized, stir in the remaining ingredients (except the popcorn) in the order listed. Pour the mixture over the popcorn; stir to coat evenly. Roll into balls quickly before the mixture cools. (The chef recommends wearing latex gloves to protect your hands from the hot caramel).

The simplicity of Evening Star Cafe’s broccoli rabe recipe belies its strong flavors, says executive chef Jim Jeffords, who prefers the more intensely earthy flavor of broccoli rabe over regular broccoli. “It’s good for anyone who’s looking for a very hearty, bitter winter green,” he says. The restaurant serves the garlicky dish as a side and as an accompaniment to its salmon and dumplings entree ($22), where it’s topped with a black mustard Hollandaise sauce. For advanced home cooks, Hollandaise makes a great topping for this broccoli rabe, Jeffords says. 3 bunches broccoli rabe 10 whole garlic cloves 1 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons red pepper flakes

Living Small in a Big Way Blogger Skyla Freeman turned her tiny studio into a home to brag about Decor Skyla Freeman left her West Wing job at the Bush White House on Jan. 20, 2009, part of a wave of Washingtonians who retool every four or eight years when administrations change. “What can I do now?” Freeman remembers thinking. “I was ready to try something nonpolitical.” A few days later, Freeman launched her home-decorating blog, Sanity Fair (Sfair .blogspot.com), chronicling her adventures decorating her first solo apartment: a petite Capitol Hill studio done in grassgreen and white.

KATHERINE FREY /THEWASHINGTON POST

“I’m a maximalist in a minimalist space. More is more. I always want more.”

Skyla Freeman’s blog, Sanity Fair, chronicles her adventures decorating her first solo apartment: a 425-square-foot studio in Capitol Hill.

Since then, the Sanity Fair blog has championed what Freeman, 32, calls her “practical, less-materialistic answer to luxury-obsessed home and style blog culture.” Her goal: to share her belief that it’s not how much you spend on an item, but how well you use it. Her apartment is her design lab. “I imagined an entire house in 425 square feet,” she says. The place is polished and practical and artfully arranged with vintage finds from her native Alabama as well as CONTINUED ON R3

Living Small

stumbled upon a teeny studio in Capitol Hill with parquet floors and lots of light. When she unloaded her moving truck, she had only her clothes, a few vintage pieces and a whole lot of ideas. Green was a good way to combine t wo favorite design themes: bold beachy Palm Beach style and chinoiserie, a look defined by fanciful Chinese-inspired furnishings. On three walls, she used Mythic Paint’s Hanging Vine high-gloss, and she hunted down $20 green ikat pillows from Wisteria. Her walk-in closet is a temple of orderliness in shades of green. Green document boxes from the

the Amvets Georgia Avenue Thrift Shop (6101 Georgia Ave. NW; 202291-4013, Amvetspickup.org). She haunts HomeGoods stores around the Beltway but swears the Bailey’s Crossroads location has the best stuff. There are family treasures and repurposed items. One pair of small foo dogs from Target has been spray-painted three times in three different colors.

“The problem with a small space is that all your weaknesses are on display.”

KATHERINE FREY PHOTOS / THEWASHINGTON POST

Clever storage solutions and insightful furniture placement (she can seat 10 people for drinks) make her studio seem roomier than it actually is. The apartment demonstrates her belief that money does not buy taste. Curated with affordable pieces from Ikea, eBay and Craigslist, the place is cozy and sophisticated. The kitchen, walk-in closet and bathroom are meticulously ordered. Vitamins are stored in green lacquered boxes from the Container Store; in the kitchen, water hyacinth baskets from World Market stash serving pieces and linens. “I’m a maximalist in a minimalist space,” Freeman says. “More is more. I always want more.” She delights in giving tours. “Welcome to the bedroom, not to be confused with the hallway,” she says, laughing. While in many studios you’ll find the bed plopped in the apartment’s center, there was no way her guests were going to be sitting around on a mattress. “Here’s the library where I can have a glass of port,” she says about the Expedit Ikea shelving that holds many of her books and serves as the divider from her “bedroom.”

She ta kes a ha lf step a nd continues the tour. “Next is my home office, which is adjacent to my living room,” she says. The white office desk, from Home Decorators Collection, has the faux bamboo details she adores. She dressed it up with Anthropologie coral pulls. The living room houses two major statement pieces: a 71-inch

sofa from small-space furniture specialist Creative Classics (906 King St., Alexandria; 703-518-4663, Creativeclassics.com) and a large $175 white credenza from eBay. She points to a black faux bamboo table for two: “This is my dining room.” “I’ve been obsessed with home decor most of my life,” Freeman says. “I had considered going to design school.” Her career took a

different path in 2005 when she got a White House job. After George W. Bush left office four years later, she launched her blog as a creative outlet while she considered her next step. She moved back to Alabama for a bit but returned to D.C. in 2011 to work as a congressional aide. Determined to get her own place after a series of group houses, she

Six Ideas to Save Space: Here are some of the ways Skyla Freeman keeps her stylish home organized without spending a fortune: Edit, Edit, Edit:

Tape it Out:

Stay Organized:

Freeman advises smallspace dwellers to keep only what they really love and be ruthless about the rest.

Don’t buy any furniture before taping out its dimensions with masking tape in the exact place you plan to put it.

A small space is even more reason to go digital: Instead of writing lists or cutting photos out of magazines, pin decorating needs on Pinterest.

Have a Place for Everything: Out-of-place items will make your home feel cluttered and even smaller. Give all your belongings a home and keep them there.

Container Store hold necklaces and bracelets, and Target plastic stack ing drawers lined w it h wallpaper contain clothes and other accessories. “The problem with a small space is that all your weaknesses are on display,” she says. “In this small of an apartment, everything is living space.” On the wall next to her bed are prints of paintings commissioned for official White House holiday cards during the four years she was at the Bush White House, a traditional annual staff gift from the president. “This kind of personal memento makes your home an honest reflection of who you are, and not just an anonymous space,” Freeman says. Naturally, Freeman added her own touch: The prints are displayed in four matching carved gold frames she scored at a hotel liquidation sale for $10 apiece. JUR A KONCIUS ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

Explore the World of Apps:

The Baseboard Rule:

Keep information such as measurements and paint chips with you at all times. Freeman uses the app Evernote to store decorating information, including room and furniture sizes.

Keep baseboards visible because when you can see under furniture, it draws the eye up and gives a feeling of spaciousness. Look for chests with legs and sofas without skirts. ( T WP)

Sharing Is Caring Oprah gives military spouses some of her ‘Favorite Things’ 35

Inside Jokes

Rough Sketches By now you’ve read — or heard about — the New York Times’ biting takedown of Guy Fieri’s Times Square restaurant, Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar. But did you see “Saturday Night Live’s” spin on the story? Not if you were watching live. The segment in which Fieri (played by Bobby Moynihan) read the review was inexplicably cut from “Weekend Update” after dress rehearsal. Instead, NBC put a video of the sketch online Monday and, like the Times’ review, it By Rudi quickly went viral. It’s Greenberg a loose, funny skit, one that would have been an asset to the lackluster episode. Moynihan-as-Fieri had me at his reaction to the review: “I’ve never felt sicker in my life. And keep in mind, all I eat is bacon bombs, which is bacon wrapped in dynamite.” “SNL” has released rehearsal footage before, so it’s possible producers thought the skit would have more impact on Monday morning. Or maybe someone just made a bad call. In either case, the Fieri sketch shows how “SNL” has had to evolve as more people watch it in chunks online and fewer watch live. If this means we get to see more of what never made it past dress rehearsal, I say open the floodgates. Sometimes a rough draft is better without the polish.

She Gives Liz A Bad Name Lindsay Lohan plays dress-up in Lifetime’s middling ‘Liz & Dick’ Television Review Good news: If you thought “Liz & Dick” would be lame, you aren’t wrong. Bad news: It falls short of being laughably, irresistibly bad. What a missed opportunity! SUN

9:00

Even so, “Liz & Dick” will probably pay off for Lifetime, at least. Despite warnings that viewers not waste their time on this made-forTV film, lots of them will fall prey to their curiosity and flock to Sunday’s 9 p.m. premiere. “Liz & Dick” covers the epic quarter-century love affair of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who, after meeting on the set of “Cleopatra,” ditched their respective spouses, wed, divorced, mar-

ried again and split again, all while keeping the world thrilled and scandalized with their steamy, rocky romance. But however colorful this love story, it confronts numerous hurdles en route to the screen. For one thing, Taylor is among the most recognizable and legendary stars of all time. Who can capture her presence in a biopic? Clearly not Lindsay Lohan. Her hair is darkened, her lips are paint-

RICHARD MCLAREN

Whatever Lindsay Lohan’s hopes were for a comeback, this flyweight endeavor won’t restore any luster to its fallen star.

ed, her ample decolletage is put on display. But any resemblance to Taylor’s ivory voluptuousness is slight. As a star and a sex symbol, Lohan, 26, is smaller-than-life, not larger. Meanwhile, she is unable (or can’t be bothered) to transform her throaty manner of speaking to resemble Taylor’s lilting, Englishaccented voice. Notwithstanding her status as a tabloid cover girl, Lohan was once regarded as a decent actress. Not here. When Taylor and Burton meet, both in costume, at the start of shooting “Cleopatra,” this electric moment is marked by his rakishly inquiring, “Has anyone ever told you you’re a very pretty girl?” The best Lohan can muster as a comeback: a roll of the eyes and an impatient sigh. Australian-born Grant Bowler does his best to portray Burton. But Bowler is most notable for not looking at all like Burton. For those who simply must watch this film, the high points are scenes re-created from the 1966 Taylor-and-Burton drama “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” They attempt to pull off a credible rendition of this classic film; instead, Lohan and Bowler seem to be spoofing it on “Saturday Night Live.” On his and Taylor’s second wedding day, Burton, loutish as ever, toasts their tortured relationship thusly: “They love, they drink, they fight, they fornicate, they marry, they divorce, they marry again. Really, how long can this show run?” How long, indeed, the viewer will be wondering. Whatever Lohan’s hopes were for a comeback, this flyweight endeavor won’t restore any luster to its fallen star. If only it were worse! FR A ZIER MOORE (AP)

You’re Fired: Starz television network has decided not to give Kelsey Grammer another term as mayor of Chicago. The cable network is canceling the drama “Boss” after two seasons. The show premiered to critical acclaim, starring Grammer as tyrannical Chicago mayor Tom Kane. The role earned him a Golden Globe for best actor in a drama earlier this year. Deadline reports that the series could still get a two-hour TV movie to wrap up the story. (AP)

Jack Frost, left, voiced by Chris Pine, and the Tooth Fairy, right, team with others to fight a bogeyman in “Rise of the Guardians.”

Stuff of Legends Actor Chris Pine joins a mythical coalition in ‘Rise of the Guardians’ As a kid, Chris Pine used to be afraid of the bogeyman. Now he fights one on the big screen. The 32-year-old actor is taking on his first voice-over role as Jack Frost in the DreamWorks animated feature “Rise of the Guardians,” which opens Wednesday. His chill character is asked to join Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy — voiced by Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman and Isla Fisher, respectively — on a mission to defeat a bogeyman called Pitch (Jude Law). Is “Rise of the Guardians” a bit like “The Avengers”?

I guess so. It’s like “Avengers” for kids. It’s every character that you knew from growing up — from Santa Claus to Sandman to the Tooth Fairy to the Easter Bunny — all brought together as this fantastic crime-fighting team. Would you say they’re myths or legends?

JON FURNISS/INVISION/AP

Q&A

The new film marks Chris Pine’s first time voicing an animated character.

I would say they’re legends. ... These different legends that we’ve all known as children growing up, no matter where you are or where you live, all come together. It’s a timeless story about belief and the power of the imagination. What’s your voice-over outfit when you turn up to be Jack Frost?

Comfort’s the name of the game — sweat pants and sandals. Will this appeal to the kids in your family?

Probably this and what I called my big-hair picture, “The Princess

Diaries 2.” I’m really, really excited to show my nephew and all the kids in my life this film. For me growing up, Christmastime was always the most fantastic, exciting time of year, and you’d stay up until three in the morning. You’d hear the parents wrapping in the other room but you knew that also, maybe, they were in collusion with Santa Claus. When you were younger, were you ever scared of the bogeyman?

I don’t know any kid that’s not afraid at some point going to bed with the lights off, totally. That’s why they make night-lights. I guess it took me some time to get used to it. Can you put an age on that?

Twenty-four. So you can now sleep with the lights off?

Not really, but I’m getting there. What gives you nightmares?

Not a fan of spiders. I saw the movie “Arachnophobia” which was single-handedly rated in the top three worse choices of my life. HIL ARY FOX (AP)

The new ‘Red Dawn’ is only slightly less silly than the original Film Review There’s good news and bad news about “Red Dawn,” a remake of the 1984 action film about high school kids from the American heartland forced to become guerilla warriors when their small town is invaded by foreign troops. The amped-up retread, which substitutes North Korean soldiers for the original Soviet bad guys — and a steely Chris Hemsworth for a cheesy Patrick Swayze — is an improvement. But that’s not saying much. The new “Red Dawn” starts off pretty scary, as the Pacific Northwest town where it’s set wakes up to find its spacious skies filled with aircraft and paratroopers. The scenes that follow — internment camps and summary executions — will be red meat for tea party patriots. There’s lots of speechifying about how freedom isn’t free, mostly from Hemsworth’s Jed, a brooding

Jed recruits the kids to the cause of resistance, and the rest of the film is spent showing their training and tactics as they evolve into a crack squad of freedom fighters.

Party All the Time There’s no age limit for raging in rapper Pitbull’s universe Album Review One-man hit factory Pitbull isn’t just good at making music for partying — he’s good at assuaging the guilt of people who like to party. On his seventh studio album, “Global Warming,” Pitbull convinces us that we all need a break from our lives. And by a break he means a never-ending night of drunken debauchery set to a throbbing soundtrack of Spanglish hip-pop.

“Party Ain’t Over,” with Usher, prompts party-goers to ignore the urge to pack it in after midnight. And Pitbull isn’t just trying to get the 20-somethings of the world to let loose — he wants older peo-

Ski areas across New England have spent big bucks on low-energy, high-efficiency snowmaking to ensure the slopes are snow-covered earlier and longer after a dismal season last year. At this time last year, Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont had six trails open. This year, the resort opened Saturday, a week earlier than in 2011, with nearly double the number of trails thanks to $4.7 million in snowmaking improvements. “This summer was a big expansion for us, and it’s already paying dividends,” said Michael Manley, mountain operations manager, who says the resort is making twice as much snow as before. This summer, Stowe added 325 energy-efficient snow tower guns, replaced 150 of the land snow guns with more efficient ones and put in 16 fan guns. And like other resorts using the high-efficiency technology, Stowe is spending less money to do it, eliminating more than 100,000 gallons of diesel fuel a year. Maine’s Sunday River spent $1 million this summer to install 300 new snow guns that will cover 15 of the resort’s most popular trails. Now it has at least six trails open,

Snow guns spray fresh snow for skiers last week at the Stowe resort in Vermont.

“We want to offer the best experience possible and be competitive in a market place where people take destination ski trips.” — JEFF W ISE , MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR AT STOWE MOUNTAIN RESORT IN VERMONT

compared to just two last year. “So we’ve opened more terrain at a faster rate,” said Darcy Morse, director of communications. In neighboring New Hampshire, Ragged Mountain in Danbury has added 100 low-energy, high-efficiency tower snow guns,

and Mount Sunapee in Newbury bought an extra 14, bringing the total over the past five years to 72. Smugglers’ Notch in Vermont also spent more than $1 million, adding 150 of the tower guns and other snowmaking enhancements; Bromley has installed 60 of the snow guns over the top of the mountain; and Burke Mountain Resort added 150 of the snow guns and replaced its diesel compressors with an electric compressor, allowing it to open the day after Thanksgiving, two weeks earlier than it typically does. “It’s a big change in the way we operate and our ability to open up earlier and then also recover from warming events during the season,” said Tim McGuire, general manager.

Nearly 24 million people are expected to fly during the 12 days surrounding Thanksgiving, up slightly from last year. Many will be separated from their loved ones. Airlines are making it much more difficult for groups of travelers to sit together, but there are still a few things fliers can do:

Confirm your seat assignments online with the airline now. Set up alerts for seat openings. ExpertFlyer.com offers free notifications when a window or aisle seat becomes vacant. Check the airline’s website 24 hours in advance when airlines start releasing more seats. If connecting, see whether seats have opened up 24 hours before the sec-

ond flight departs. Ask at check-in. Agents can sometimes put families in seats held just prior to departure. Ask again. Gate agents and flight attendants can sometimes seek volunteers to swap seats. If all else fails, offer nearby passengers candy or a drink to switch seats. Seriously, bartering works. (AP)

“He helped bring unprecedented exposure to the league and, early on, brought massive crowds. Nobody would cite him as the only reason for the league’s growth in recent years because there are a lot of factors, but he certainly played a role in the league’s expansion, much improved attendance and growing TV rights deals that have made MLS miles better than it was in 2007.” — Ryan Rosenblatt at SBNATION.COM measures David Beckham’s impact on the MLS, after the Los Angeles Galaxy player announced that the MLS Cup on Saturday would be his final game in the league.

“If you resent the Rihannaplane 150, that’s fine. We understand. We would resent us if we were not here.” — Anonymous Captive Journo at GAWKER.COM, one of 150 guests invited on the singer’s 777 Tour, tries to mitigate jealousy, adding that the trip has been a nightmare: “[P]icture what it would be like going to your job if there was no toilet, kitchen, water fountain ... or lunch break, and instead of going home at the end of the night, they made you wait standing up in an airport.”

MEDIUM

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) What you usually feel in a certain situation today may not mean what you have come to expect it to mean. Some investigation is warranted. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You may have to go back over what you have done to make sure that you have followed all the rules and left nothing to chance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You may pay quite a high price for inattention; be sure you know who is talking, what it’s about and what it means. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can tend to otherwise routine endeavors with renewed creativity and enthusiasm. You have someone to impress! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take care you don’t lash out at someone else simply because you are angry at yourself. Self-awareness is the key to harmony.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may not see things adding up the way others do today, and you’ll want to be sure that you’re not being deceived in any way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You won’t have to work very hard to assemble a crack team; there are many who want to work with you, for you and by your side. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A friend may call on you for advice and assistance because he or she thinks you have some firsthand knowledge — and so you do!
