‘Let Freedom Ring’ Event Marks 50th Anniversary of Historic March PORTSMOUTH – A New Orleans-style celebration will mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s historic March on Washington. The Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail will be among hundreds of organizations across the nation sponsoring events on Wednesday, Aug. 28, at 3 p.m. in commemorating Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement. It was on Aug. 28 in 1963 at 3 p.m. that King first uttered one of the most powerful and memorable phrases in American history, “I have a dream.” Dr. King’s speech in front of 300,000 people on the Mall in Washington marked a crucial turning point in the American Civil Rights movement and reaffirmed King’s absolute commitment to a nonviolent approach to confronting America’s entrenched system of racial bias. In his speech, King urged Americans “to transform the jangling discords of our nation” and “let freedom ring...from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.” Those words re-

sound through the years, celebrating the progress America has made in the quest for racial justice, while reminding us of the challenges that still confront our nation today. In the spirit of what Dr. King called “the fierce urgency of now,” the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change has invited people across the country to celebrate the Civil Rights leader’s vision by ringing bells at 3 p.m. on Aug. 28, the 50th anniversary of his speech and the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

The Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail will lead a musical street procession from the Discover Portsmouth Center to the African Burial Ground on Chestnut Street, where the public is invited to join in a traditional African acknowledgment of all who have gone before us in the struggle for justice. Musicians from the area will lead the procession. The celebration will conclude at Discover Portsmouth with light refreshments provided by the Black Heritage Trail. (MetroCreative photo)

PORTSMOUTH – The Herb Society of America’s NorthEast Seacoast Unit will demonstrate uses of herbs on Tuesday, Aug. 27, at 7 p.m. at Stoodley’s Tavern at Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth. Participants will learn how herbal blends such as gremalota or bonne herbes add a fresh dimension to salads, pasta and meats. Ways to make herbal vinegars to use in marinades or vinaigrettes and how to make and freeze herb butters to finish off a sauce or top a pan seared fish fillet or steak will also be taught. Participants will learn many other uses of herbs, from hair rinses to potpourris to making lemon grass dust cloths. Members will also discuss growing tips and how to preserve herbs. Pre-registration is required. Registration is $8 ($5 for Strawbery Banke Museum members). To register, contact Rie Sluder at 603-642-7034 or nesunit@ The NorthEast Seacoast Unit, one of 48 regional units of the Herb Society of America, was established in June 1987. It

Recent works are panoramas of urban and nature imagery from digital photographs that are screen printed, hand colored, fired and glazed on ceramic wall pieces. An artist and an educator, Mess creates experimental works using recycled ceramic materials and referencing land forms. Mess studied art at the University of Toledo, received a bachelor of fine art degree in studio art at the University of Montana, Missoula, in 1998, and a master of fine art degree in ceramics at the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2008. Mess recycles clay to create densely layered sculptures that suggest excavated soil samples. Not content to explore the surface of the landscape, his sculptures appear to peel back the outer layer of the land, digging in for closer examination of the accumulation of natural and human debris. Walton began to work with clay in 1998 after an extensive career as an art director and photo editor. She studied ceramics at the Parsons School of Design, and her work explores her thoughts about exposure and protection, vulnerability and inaccessibility, and the passage of time and beauty. “Caught Up with Reality” The still life as subject provided opportunities for late 19th and 20th-century American artists to investigate their under-

Arts In Reach Teens Join the Actors of Seacoast Rep PORTSMOUTH – A group of 20 teenage girls enrolled in Arts In Reach’s (AIR) summer program, artVentures, recently attended “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” The girls were far more than audience members, however. Before the show, AIR teens and the cast of the show gathered for a family-style dinner at Seacoast Repertory Theatre provided by Flatbread, and acting and dance workshops led by Rep actors. Teens participated in a Q&A session with the professionals and laughed through the evening’s show. The Rep’s executive director, Craig Faulkner, believes the theater is a special community gathering space and welcomed the chance for AIR teens to explore their love of arts and culture at the theater. “We at the Rep are happy to play a small part in the amazing work that AIR does,” Faulkner stated. “Being able to spend time with these girls was as enjoyable for us as I hope it was for them. I’m hopeful that this is just the beginning of the

relationship and support that the Rep and AIR will provide each other going forward.” AIR Executive Director Virginia Skevington added, “What an experience for the girls – not only to attend the show, but to hear the challenges, and the successes that these talented actors have faced on their individual performance paths. Exposing our girls to the arts and to mentors who encourage teens to pursue their own dreams, whether they be in the arts or not, is what we love to do AIR.” AIR’s artVentures program runs for three weeks and introduces teens to multiple arts disciplines including painting, photography, dance, singing and songwriting, poetry, and theater. he program is free and is made possible in part by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and National Endowment for the Arts. “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” runs through Aug. 24 on the main stage at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre.

Along with de Steiguer’s photographs, the Main Gallery will feature glasswork sculpture by Wil Sideman from his series “Based on a True Story:

An Investigation of Family and Self through Narrative Object.” Sideman’s collection contains works derived from objects in his family history which he used to research and explore concepts of family and selfidentity. Working from site visits, memories, and family stories, he has created individual sculptures using glass as the primary material. His work pays tribute to the craftsmen who came before him in his family and furthers his understanding of the narrative objects he has treasured throughout his life.

~ Ask The Computer Lady ~ to set it up, so I kept putting it off. I finally plugged it in this week, and it took only a minute or two and I was up and running. What a nice surprise. The Chrome operating system does one thing, and it does it well. It goes online. So far this works fine for me, I hooked it up to the TV in the kitchen so that I can access the AllRecipes website while I am cooking. The only thing that I wish I could change right now, is that it goes into sleep mode rather quickly. Every time I came back to see what the next step in the recipe was, the computer had gone to sleep and I had to wake it back up, though when I left a video playing on the webpage, it did not go to sleep. Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, When I turned on my PC yesterday I got a message: “Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter.” I inserted my recovery disk in and nothing happened, I got the same message. Is there a different disk I am supposed to insert? My PC is a 9-year-old Compaq. Is it worth messing with? Thanks for any information you can give me. ~ Dan

Dear Dan, On a 9-year-old computer, there is a very good chance that this error message means that your hard drive has failed and you would need to replace the hard drive. Hopefully, you have already backed up your important files like pictures and documents. Trying to use your recovery disk is a good first step in trying to fix the problem, but in addition to inserting the disk and trying to start your computer, you might also need to go into the system BIOS and set it to book from the CD or DVD drive. The steps to do this are different for each computer, so I can’t give you directions. If the recovery disk works, that is great; you might get a few more years use out of the computer. But if the hard drive has failed, you are probably better off looking at a new computer. ~ Elizabeth PS: Running the recovery disk will erase your data files, so get those backed up first. Dear Computer Lady, Do you know how to get Facebook to show things in chronological order? I’d like to see the newest posts from people and newspages I follow right away. This morning some NECN posts

and Matt Noyes posts and some friends’ posts from 11 hours ago to a day ago showed up. Thanks, Mary Dear Mary, I like to see my Facebook posts in chronological order as well, and even though it is simple to get them to display that way, for some reason, Facebook keeps putting it back to the “Top Stories” view. Here is how to see your wall posts with the most recent first. Go to your Facebook news feed (click the “Home” link next to your name in the top-right corner of the page). Just above the first post, a little to the right is the word “Sort.” Click on “Sort” then click “Most Recent.” Now your news feed posts are displayed with the newest at the top. ~ Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, First, a big thank-you for all I’ve learned from your letter. Now, I am getting rid of a laptop computer. The screen is no longer good. Is there a hard drive on a laptop that can be removed before you dispose of it? I am concerned about security and have learned from somewhere that you should remove the

Dear Gwendoline, Yes, there is a hard drive on your laptop computer that you can either erase, or remove before you dispose of the laptop. Most laptops have fairly easy access to the hard drive. Just remove one of the small access panels on the back of the laptop and remove the hard drive. It is just about the size of a deck of cards. Occasionally, I come across a laptop where the hard drive is not easy to access, so if you can’t easily find it, google the model of your laptop and you can usually find directions for how to access the hard drive. If you have any problems, I can either erase, or remove, or even save your files that are on the drive for you, just give me a call to set up an appointment. Elizabeth Interested in learning more?

BUSINESS & FINANCE Can You Benefit from Municipal Bonds?

Over the past couple of years, the economic picture has brightened for many cities and states – but some of them are still facing potential financial problems. As a citizen, you may well have concerns about these issues. And as an investor, these financial woes may affect your thinking about one particular type of investment vehicle: municipal bonds. Specifically, given the difficulties faced by a few municipalities, should you consider adding “munis” to the fixed-income portion of your portfolio? It is true that municipal defaults, though still rare, rose in 2012. But we haven’t experienced any sharp increases in defaults in 2013. Overall, default rates for municipal bonds are low – much lower than for corporate bonds of comparable quality, according to Moody’s Investor Services. Of course, there are no guarantees, but if you stick with “investment-grade” mu-

nicipal bonds – those that receive the highest grades from independent rating agencies – you can reduce the chances of being victimized by a default. And municipal bonds offer these benefits: Tax advantages – Municipal bond interest payments are free from federal taxes, and possibly state and local taxes, too. (However, some munis are subject to the alternative minimum tax, as well as state and local taxes.) This tax treatment means you would have to earn a much higher yield on other types of bonds to match the “taxable equivalent yield” of municipal bonds. Civic benefits – By adding quality municipal bonds to your portfolio, you can help support worthwhile projects in your community, such as construction of schools and hospitals. Steady income – Barring a default, you will receive a regular, predictable income stream for as long as you own your municipal bonds. However, if you currently own many long-term munis, you may want to consider

reducing your overall position. Eventually, rising interest rates will push down bond prices, and long-term bonds carry added risk because their prices will decline more as interest rates rise. Work with your financial advisor to determine the most appropriate approach for your situation. Diversification – Municipal bonds can help you diversify the fixed-income portion of your portfolio if it’s heavily weighted toward corporate bonds. And you can even diversify your municipal bond holdings by building a “ladder” consisting of munis of varying maturities. Once you’ve built such a ladder, you can gain benefits in all interest-rate environments – when rates are low, you’ll still have your longer-term bonds working for you (longerterm bonds generally pay higher rates than shorter-term ones), and when interest rates rise, you can reinvest the proceeds of your shorter-term bonds at the higher rates. Consult with your financial advisor to determine if municipal bonds can be an appropriate addition to your portfolio,

as investing in bonds involves risks, including credit risk and market risk. Bond investments are also subject to interest rate risk such that when interest rates rise, the prices of bonds can decrease, and the investor can lose principal value if the investment is sold prior to maturity. Investors should evaluate whether a bond ladder and the securities held within it are consistent with their investment objectives, risk tolerance and financial circumstances.

PainCare Supports Adaptive Sports Partners of North Country SOMERSWORTH – For the third year, PainCare of Somersworth was involved in the recent Sunrise Ascent on Mount Washington, a fundraiser held by the Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC). The mission of ASPNC, a non-profit organization, is to provide year-round opportunities in sports and recreation for persons with physical or developmental disabilities. The event took place at sunrise on Mount Washington where five teams, each including an adaptive athlete and 14 “mules,” ascended eight miles up the Mount Washington Auto Road to the summit.

ASPNC’s goal was to raise funds to support its annual budget so it can continue to provide athletic opportunities for people with disabilities. PainCare sponsored its project development coordinator, Danny Sprague, who volunteered as one of the mules on Team Bella. PainCare’s CEO, Dr. Michael O’Connell, believes in the mission of ASPNC, and is happy to have the opportunity to support such a wonderful cause. If you would like to donate to or learn more about ASPNC, visit To learn more about PainCare, visit
