Prescott Park Arts Festival Plans ‘Sandy Search’ to Cast Dog in Summer Musical PORTSMOUTH – With Prescott Park Arts Festival’s summer musical, “Annie,” just around the corner, it comes as no surprise that the search has begun for Annie’s beloved mutt, Sandy. On Saturday, May 11, starting at 3:30 p.m., Strawbery Banke will become a temporary puppy playground for a first-ever dog event: Sandy Search. This canine-focused event will serve as auditions for aspiring theater dogs, and playtime for all other dogs that simply want to attend. Sandy Search will determine the dog that will play the role of Sandy in this year’s musical. The event will bring together local dogs, their human
guardians, and canine-loving spectators for a fun afternoon. Donations will be collected at the event, with a portion of proceeds to support the New
Hampshire Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NHSPCA). All dogs in attendance will receive a puppy treat bag, and the winner of Sandy
Search will get a one-year supply of dog food, supplied by Canine Cupboard of Portsmouth. Auditions will be guided by Canine Academy of Portsmouth instructor Sue Carney, along with Prescott Park Arts Festival’s Musical Director Billy Butler. “The thought of keeping the cuteness factor of Sandy auditions all to ourselves seemed wrong, so we decided to spin it the other way and turn it into a community event,” explained Executive Director Ben Anderson, regarding the choice to hold an open cast call for the role. The Festival is seeking an obedient, gentle, dog that will
thrive in a theater setting. No experience is necessary, but a well-trained dog or a willingness to be trained is desired. It is essential that the dog be good with children, friendly, calm and available for all rehearsals and performances. Sandy Search is a free event and welcomes all dogs to attend, regardless of breed, age, or future theater aspirations. Sign up at http://www. prescottpark.org/audition.cfm or call the festival office at 603436-2848. For more information, contact Ben Anderson, executive director, at 603-436-2848 or at email@example.com. (MetroCreative photo)

Maine’s First Lady Participates in Quilt Presentation
ROLLINSFORD – Maine’s First Lady Ann LePage recently participated in the presentation of Quilts of Valor to 30 veterans of World War II, Vietnam, Korea, and Desert Storm. The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a 501c (3) non-profit organization whose national effort is to cover all returning service men and women touched by war. These wartime quilts are a tangible reminder of an American’s appreciation and gratitude. Quilts are awarded at many different levels: at military hospitals, to entire service units returning from combat
deployments, or they may be awarded individually. The recent presentation was held at the American Legion Post 47, 551 Foundry St., Rollinsford. “I want to thank Lisa Lapierre of the Village Quilt Shop in Berwick, Maine, for inviting me to participate in this event,” LePage said. “She has worked tirelessly to make this day one these vets will never forget. “I’m honored to be a part of this national grassroots service effort to recognize these men and women who have been touched by war.”

~ Ask The Computer Lady ~ Dear Computer Lady, Hi! Love your site. My questions is about Windows Explorer - Windows 7. I use folders and subfolders to keep track of tons of documents for work. When I sort a top level folder by name, it shows me not only all the documents in the folder I’m in, but also all the documents in any subfolders. So if I were trying to sort the 50 documents in my folder, but it had subfolders in it, I would see hundreds of documents sorted by name. I find this extremely frustrating!! Do you know how to change this back to the way older versions of Windows sorted by name, and only show the contents of the folder you’re in?? Thank you! Diane Dear Diane, It took me a moment to re-create the situation you were describing, but once I figured it out, I knew what you needed. It looks like you are not
sorting the contents of your top-level folder, instead, you are using the “Arrange” menu and arranging your files by name. Here is how to get back to your preferred method of viewing your files and folders. Go to your top-level folder, and click on “Arrange by” in the upper- right corner of the window, then select folder in the drop down list. Now that you are looking at the traditional folder view, go to the top of the column where it says, “Name” and click once to sort your folders by name. Click on “Name” a second time, and it will reverse the sort order. This should be the view that you were looking for. Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, I upgraded from Win 7-64 to Win 8 Pro. It was not a “clean” install. The cursor does not appear on the Start screen, but it does appear on programs I use.
Also, when I click on a tile on the Start screen, it reverts to my Win 7 home screen - but with the Start orb gone. I bought a new mouse/ keyboard combo because my keyboard would not work in 8, so it’s not likely to be a mouse problem. Should I do a clean install of 8? Cliff Dear Cliff, Yes, I would go with a “clean” install of Windows 8. That is when you format (erase) the hard drive before installing Windows 8. A clean install will probably get rid of the problems you are experiencing, but some of what you have described isn’t a problem, but instead a “Feature” of Windows 8. The desktop in Windows 8 looks very similar to the Windows 7 desktop, but it does not include the start menu. That is supposed to be replaced by the entire start screen with all the big square icons. This is why your desktop looks like your Window 7 screen minus the start orb. I always prefer to do a clean install of Windows when upgrading from one Operating System (OS) to another. That way, you are not bringing any corrupted files or settings from the old OS to the new one. Elizabeth
Dear Computer Lady, Would you please post directions on how to access past Ask the Computer Lady newsletter issues in the event of email problems. I recently had problems receiving email on one of the days your newsletter came out, was never able to access my emails on that day and therefore could not read that weekís information. Thank you ñ love your newsletters, they are very informative and useful. Grace Dear Grace, While there is no online archive of the actual newsletters, each article in the newsletters is on my website at: www. askthecomputerlady.com/ questions When you go to this page, there is a list of categories on the left. If you scroll down to the bottom of the list, there is a small drop down list named, Archives. Click on the drop down list and select the month you are looking for.

My CD/DVD drive does not work anymore. When I put the CD in the drive, nothing happens. I then click on Run and type in the setup. exe, but still nothing happens. I am trying to install a new printer, but I need to install the CD into the drive...but nothing happens. How can I fix this? Susie Dear Susie, It sounds like your CD/ DVD drive needs to be replaced. Because this type of drive has rapidly moving parts (to spin the CD or DVD) they do tend to wear out over time. You have a few options for getting your printer installed. You can replace the drive with a new one. If you are not comfortable doing that yourself, your local computer shop would be happy to install a new CD drive for you. You can purchase an external, USB CD/DVD drive and just plug it in and use it. Another option that will work for your printer drivers, is to go to the printer manufacturer’s website and download the files for your new printer. Once you have downloaded the file, you can run the file and it will install your printer software. Elizabeth Interested in learning more?

...CARVER from page 1 In addition to his commission work, Breed currently teaches carving, cabinetmaking, and hand tool skills in the manner of the 18th century workers at The Breed School in Rollinsford. “As a man of means, George Washington would have ordered his furniture from a craftsman with Allan’s skill and talent,” said Stacey Fraser deHaan, house manager of the Wentworth Lear Historic Houses. “We are fortunate to have a local artisan on-hand who can demonstrate and discuss the techniques popular during the 18th century as part of ‘The Many Faces of George Washignton Exhibit’ at the Wentworth Lear Historic Houses.”
The national traveling panel exhibition, “The Many Faces of George Washington,” examines the multi-dimensional, real-life man behind the myth. The Wentworth Lear Historic Houses is the only northern New England organization to host this exhibition in 2013.

Get Ready for Some Financial Spring Cleaning Spring is in the air – or, at the very least, it’s on the calendar this week. And if you’re like many people, you may be looking forward to doing some spring cleaning around your house and yard. But this year, why not go beyond your physical environment and do some “sprucing up” of your financial situation? Here are a few possibilities to consider: Clean your portfolio of “clutter.” When you go through your house, you may find some clutter in closets, storage areas, on top of desks, under beds or just about any other place. Your investment portfolio also may contain clutter, in the form of investments that no longer meet
your needs. Consequently, it’s a good idea to “de-clutter” your portfolio periodically by selling those extraneous investments and using the proceeds to help purchase others that may be more effective in helping you make progress toward your financial goals. Consolidate your investments in one place. As you clean your house, you may find that you have many common items, such as brooms, hammers, duct tape and so on, scattered among various rooms. It might be more efficient to keep all such objects in one central location; this can help prevent you from needlessly replacing or duplicating them. As an investor, you may have an IRA with one financial services provider, an old 401(k) with a different one, and some other
investments with yet another institution. If you consolidated all these investment vehicles with one provider, you might be able to save some fees and expenses. Perhaps even more importantly, by uniting all your investments in one place, you may find it easier to follow a central, unified investment strategy. Check for “gaps” in your financial strategy. Every spring, it’s a good idea to check your gutters for leaks, your sidewalks for cracks and your paint for chips. By doing so, you’ll help protect your home and surroundings. To help protect your family’s future, it’s important to have adequate life and disability insurance. Plant seeds for growth. When spring arrives, it’s time to
plant the seeds for your flowers and vegetables. As an investor, you also have to be concerned about growth. Specifically, you’ll want to consider investments that have the potential to grow enough to help provide the financial resources to meet your long-term goals, such as a comfortable retirement. Consequently, you should review your portfolio to determine if it contains an appropriate amount of growth-oriented vehicles for your individual objectives, time horizon and risk tolerance. Seek professional assistance. When you’re tidying up for spring, you may find some jobs that you can’t do alone, such as cleaning a heavily stained carpet, unclogging
a blocked drain or trimming the highest branches on a tree. For these tasks, you might need to call in trained professionals. It’s the same with investing: You can do some things on your own, but for complex tasks such as creating and maintaining an appropriate investment strategy, you may need to work with a financial professional. Consider putting these spring-cleaning tips to work soon. They may just help put some sparkle and shine into your financial “house.” Article provided by Joseph Mittica, Edward Jones Financial Advisor, Joseph. Mittica@edwardjones.com.

The days when men and women would work for the same company for decades are largely a thing of the past. Though some professionals still remain loyal to a single firm for the duration of their careers, such instances are now the aberration as opposed to the norm. Switching firms or careers has certainly become more acceptable over the years, but that does not necessarily mean everyone who switches jobs is doing it

for the right reason. Many people have switched jobs only to realize the grass is not greener on the other side. Others have switched jobs amidst economic uncertainty only to be laid off shortly after making the move. While the opportunity for a fresh start is nothing to scoff at, professionals looking to change careers should consider a host of factors before deciding to do so. Motivation Before changing careers, it’s best to sit down and honestly assess what is motiving your potential move. If you harbor a strong desire to pursue a passion and make it your career, then changing careers is probably something you must do. But changing careers because you feel if you are slighted by a current employer or you feel like changing for the sake of change, then you might want to reconsider.

If you’re considering a change because of an issue with your present employer, try working out the issue before pursuing a career change. You might find the issue is a byproduct of miscommunication and not something to change careers over. If you want to change careers because you feel like you need a change, keep in mind how difficult the job market is and how vulnerable you might be if your next move does not pan out. Give your motivation some serious thought before making any career changes, and you’re less likely to regret your decision. Experience Pursuing a new career in a different field can be exciting, but if you lack experience in that field then you could be making a mistake. While the economy has rebounded in 2013, the job market is still highly competitive and less than ideal for inexperienced workers. While you will need to start somewhere if you ever hope to transition to a new career, consider doing so on a part-time or volunteer basis and keep your current job. This gives you a chance to get your feet wet and pad your resume, and you will still have the safety net of a full-time career. Quality of Life Quality of life is too often overlooked when professionals are considering a career change. Though the opportunity to make more money is enticing, money should not dictate your decision. A new job with a higher salary might require you to be on the road more often than your current career, See CAREERS page 8...

Portsmouth Community Road Race Series is Growing PORTSMOUTH – The Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce recently reported the Portsmouth Community Road Race Series is growing. The race series, underwritten by Portsmouth Regional Hospital, works towards Building a Healthy Community while at the same time supporting nonprofits in Portsmouth. This year’s series welcomes two new races and a race partnership. The Portsmouth High School ECO Club is a student-run organization that is currently raising money for the installation of solar panels at our school. The PHS ECO club is hosting the Run for the Sol 5K road race in collaboration with the Great
Bay Community College on Saturday, May 11, in order to raise funds for solar panels at the High School. The road race will feature a 5K course at the Pease Tradeport with a start and stop point at Great Bay Community College. The start time will be 1 p.m. The second new race will be on Sunday, June 2, when the SASS 5K to Keep Kids Safe Road Race and Kids’ Fun Run kicks off at 11 a.m. from Martin’s Point Healthcare and uses the same Pease course. SASS is dedicated to the prevention of child sexual abuse and sexual assault, while supporting victims/survivors and others impacted by sexual violence. As part of this mission, SASS offers a Safe Kids Strong
Teens prevention education program which helps keep kids safe from childhood sexual abuse, sexual harassment, bullying, and teen dating violence. All proceeds from the SASS 5K to Keep Kids Safe will go towards the Safe Kids Strong Teens prevention education program that SASS provides to over 10,000 children in grades K-12 throughout the greater Seacoast area of New Hampshire. Finally, the Community Child Care Center of Portsmouth and Prescott Park Arts Festival have partnered to host a 5K race followed by a Kids’ Fun Run in Prescott Park on Saturday, Oct. 12at 10 a.m. More details on the race and the course to be announced in the coming weeks.
What’s Behind Female Hair Loss While baldness is an issue most often associated with men, women can suffer from hair loss as well, and you may be surprised to learn just how prevalent the condition is. Hair loss, or alopecia, can affect the entire body and may be a hereditary condition or a side effect of medications or physical or psychological ailments. Just about anyone can experience hair loss. Research indicates as many as two-thirds of all women experience hair loss at some point. You may notice strands of hair in the trap at the bottom of the shower drain or caught in your hairbrush. It’s normal to lose 50 to 100 hairs a day. But when hair loss is pronounced,
either by falling out in clumps or thinning conspicuously, it may be indicative of a more serious medical condition. Hair production occurs in cycles. The scalp and hair can be compared to a garden. When the soil condition is not perfect, a garden will not grow properly. The same can be said for the scalp. Medications, illnesses, infections, or chemicals used on the head or body can disrupt the cycle and cause hair to stop growing properly. This can eventually lead to hair loss. Most women who experience hair loss notice it in their 50s or 60s, but doctors note it can happen at any age. Here are some of the primary causes of hair loss.
Homemaker Health Honors Volunteers
ROCHESTER – In recognition and appreciation of all of the volunteers who donated more than 3,000 hours of volunteer service this past year to The Homemakers Health Services, Rochester, the home health care agency recently hosted a Volunteer Brunch, where each volunteer received
a flowering potted plant donated by Studley’s Florist and Garden Center. Special recognition went to Sylvia Dowst of Strafford, left, who was voted The Homemakers Volunteer of the Year by her peers. At right is Carol Fowler, The Homemakers volunteer coordinator. (courtesy photo)
Hypothyroidism Hair loss can be a byproduct of an underactive thyroid. That’s because, in addition to regulating your basal metabolic rate, the thyroid also is responsible for the growth of hair, skin and nails. If you don’t have enough of the thyroid hormone, you may notice changes in the body, such as hair loss. Blood tests can be given to test for hypothyroidism.
Anemia is caused by iron deficiency and results in insufficient numbers of red blood cells to transport oxygen through the body. Iron deficiency anemia can cause weakness, pale skin, fatigue, headaches, and hair loss. Increasing iron in the diet through leafy greens, fortified cereals and beans can help. Poor scalp health: Skin conditions present on

Springtime Window Safety The calendar says it’s spring. The daffodils are in bloom. The Red Sox are playing. And the temperature is moving in the right direction. Let’s open some windows and get some of this nice fresh spring air circulating throughout the house. But wait! If you have children you may want to consider the following: • Don’t rely on the screens to prevent your child from falling out • Open double-hung windows from the top • Window stops should be installed to prevent the window from being opened more than 4 inches • Window guards should have
place after pregnancy, major surgeries or even after drastic weight loss. When a woman is experiencing telogen effluvium, her hair shifts more quickly from the growing stage (anagen) to the transition stage (catagen) to the shedding stage (telogen). Typically, women experiencing telogen effluvium will notice hair loss between six weeks and three months after a stressful event, and women may have to be patient and wait for hair loss to slow down. If you’ve determined the hair loss is from medication, your doctor may be able to lower the dosage or switch drugs.

a simple release mechanism for adults to use in an emergency • Keep furniture or anything a child can climb on away from the windows • When not open, windows should be locked at all times • Plant shrubs or install a soft edging material beneath the windows to lessen the impact should a fall occur. Now go ahead and enjoy the warm spring weather but remember none of the above is a substitute for parental supervision.

Before changing careers, think of the potential impact such a change may have on you and if you’re willing to live with that impact.

Even single professionals might find moving to a new city where they have no established social circle is far more difficult than they imagined. Such a move can cause feelings of loneliness and isolation. Unemployed professionals may feel that’s a risk worth taking, but those who already have a job should determine if a relocation is really something they are ready to try.

Artist Denise Brown Chosen for Painted Ponies Project PORTSMOUTH – Artist Denise F. Brown of Portsmouth has once again had her artwork selected for the prestigious Trail of Painted Ponies. Her one-of-a-kind design for the “Old Country Store” painted pony will be made into a collectible and sold this summer by Trail of Painted Ponies. The Trail of Painted Ponies began in 2000 when a New Mexico sculptor created a life-size painted pony, which was auctioned to raise money for charity. The effort was so successful, that a call went out for other Southwestern artists to do the same. The result was more than 120 artists creating life-size painted ponies which generated $1 million for nonprofits. Miniature replicas, based on the original painted ponies, were then produced for sale. Eight new designs are offered each year. Brown, a well-known watercolorist and graphic artist, was first chosen to submit a design to Trail of Painted Ponies back in 2006 when she was one of 20 finalists selected in a nationwide competition. The only artist from New England, she created “Abenaki,” which featured symbolism of the Native American tribes of the same name, as well as nature elements from this region. “Abenaki” was chosen by popular vote to be made into a collectible. In 2012, Brown’s pony “Icicles’ was made into a collectible; it is rendered in shades

Rotary Club Awards Grant to Arts In Reach PORTSMOUTH – Arts In Reach (AIR), a nonprofit organization which provides free enrichment programming to teenage girls of the Greater Seacoast, was a recent grant recipient of the Charitable Division of the Rotary Club of Portsmouth. A grant in the amount of $700 was awarded to AIR to benefit the organization’s summer program, ArtVentures, which will provide 40 teen girls of Strafford and Rockingham Counties with mentoring and multidisciplinary arts programming. Like its year-round program opportunities, AIR’s ArtVentures is provided to disadvantaged teen girls of the Seaof blue and white to capture the beauty of winter. Her most recent selection, “Old Country Store,” salutes small-town, New England country stores, and evokes memories of a similar store from Brown’s childhood growing up in Rye, N.H. “I used to go down to Pettigrew¹s Country Store, which was also the post office, almost every day to collect the mail and buy some penny candy,” she said. “These wonderful little stores sold everything under the sun and were community gathering places. “Pettigrew¹s had a hitching post out front, rocking chairs on the porch and an oldfashioned pot-bellied stove that See PONIES page 11...
coast at no cost; transportation is also provided to participants. The program will encourage teens to develop self-confidence and self-esteem, using art as a vehicle towards personal development, and healthy futures. AIR attempts to meet the individual emotional, social and physical needs and challenges of each participant, encourages positive choices, and goalsetting. ArtVentures provides a safe, supportive space to allow each teen to reach her fullest potential. “The goal of ArtVentures is to provide the strong mentoring core that AIR is known for while also connecting girls with female artists of the region, and
encouraging them to experience the local arts and cultural sites of the Seacoast,” said AIR Executive Director Virginia Skevington. “The Rotary Club of Portsmouth and its individual members’ are committed to creating opportunities for youth and through their gift, they help us support strong girls, and build stronger communities.” The Portsmouth Rotary Club donates money to both local and international nonprofits. This year marks the club’s 90th year of service to the region. To learn more, visit www.portsmouthrotary.org. To learn more, visit www. artsinreach.org.
Gundalow Company Named ‘Best of New England’ Winner
PORTSMOUTH – The Gundalow Company has been recognized as a 2013 “Editors’ Choice” winner in Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England. This designation is awarded by Yankee editors and contributors, who name select restaurants, lodgings, and attractions in New England to the list. The Gundalow Company takes its name from the shallowdraft cargo boats that were once dominant along local waterways. In 2011, the nonprofit built and launched a reproduction of a gundalow-style boat, named the Piscataqua, after the river, the region, and the watershed. The Piscataqua is a 49 passenger, Coast Guard-certified floating classroom that in its first year of operation (2012) had over 1,300 local youth and 200 teachers onboard learning about environmental issues facing the Piscataqua Maritime Region. In addition, about 3,000 passengers participated two-hour public sails, which are offered from Memorial Day through October. “Every one of the 300-plus places we highlight contains an untold back story about someone striving for perfection, having a dream, and having the vision to make a difference, whether it’s a small artisan’s studio or a lobster-in-the-rough shack or a dressed-up steakhouse on a treelined Boston street,” said Yankee’s editor, Mel Allen. “While it may be hard to create a business, the true challenge is making it work, being good enough that it endures and brings people back. Those are the qualities we look for and reward when we say ‘Best of New England.’”

Wakeboarding is a Growing Sport Water enthusiasts take to rivers, lakes and oceans for scores of different marine activities. The popularity of water sports has exploded, including a growing interest in wakeboarding. Wakeboarding is an activity where a person is pulled behind a motorboat at about 20 to 24 miles per hour. Instead of water skiing, the boarder uses a single board that resembles a snowboard, though wakeboards are shorter than snowboards and slightly wider. The feet are bound to the board with either straps or a bootlike device so that the board will not fly off of the feet while doing tricks. Statistics indicate that there are more than 3.1 million wakeboarders across the globe. Roughly 75 percent of wakeboarders are
males ages 13 to 24. Wakeboarding has become the fastest-growing water sport. An offshoot of traditional boat-propelled wakeboarding is cable wakeboarding. This is where the wakeboarder is attached to a permanent, overhead ski lift-type cable that stretches across a body of water and connects to fixed towers. The cable pulls the wakeboarder to ramps where he or she can execute tricks. Wakeboarding, particularly cable wakeboarding, has become so popular that it may someday qualify for inclusion in the Olympics. While currently part of the X-Games & Gravity Games, the International Olympic Committee announced cable wakeboarding as one of eight new sports being considered for the 2020

RYE – Nearly 500 runners hit the trails for the Seacoast Science Center’s fifth annual Whale of a 5K Trail Race held recently in Odiorne Point State Park in support of ocean education. The scenic route brought them through the forest, by the shore, on the sandy beach, and up the hills over military fortifications of Odiorne Point State Park. Race winner Chris Ritchie, 30, of Hampton, crossed the finish line with a time of 17:28. Christine Houde, 26, of Somersworth, was female overall winner with a time of 21:33.

The Kids’ Fun Run, gave 75 of the youngest of athletes the option to run a 100-yard dash and/or a ½-mile run. In honor of Earth Day, each participant was awarded with a packet of seeds to plant at home. The center combined its Earth Day celebration with the
event. The crowd enjoyed music, face painting, programs, information stations, and eco-friendly crafts and activities, including a beach cleanup led by the Blue Ocean Society. According to race director Ashley Stokes, “Despite the early morning rain, runners showed up and were enthusiastic about hitting the trails.” Male age group top winners were Jack Meehan, 23:53 (12 and under); Carl Harris, 18:48 (13-17); Thomas Jarvela, 18:20 (18-29); Ryan Proulx, 17:57 (30-39); Nick Allen, 19:39 (40-49); Paul Bouchard, 21:22 (50-59); David Ritchie, 22:40; (60-69), and Gary Chapman, 49:55 (70+).

On the final day of each camp session, students showcase their skills with an evening performance for family, friends and the public.

er and resident stage manager Sue Roy. With many years of experience working with all the young actors in the ROH Theatre Series productions, Roy observed, “Children are eager to learn and the creativity of a theater experience stimulates their young minds.” It is so rewarding to watch a shy child blossom into a star on stage.” Registration forms and
camp information are available at the ROH box office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and for download at RochesterOperaHouse.com.

ated to “highlight the year’s most distinguished books from independent publishers,” according to ForeWord. Winners will be announced in June at the American Library Association’s Conference in Chicago. The wreck of the Nottingham Galley was one of the most famous seafaring tragedies of the 18th century. After slamming into the tiny rock six miles off York in a raging winter storm, the crew survived for almost a month in dire circumstances.
