Portsmouth Works to Purchase of FSH’s Community Campus PORTSMOUTH The Foundation for Seacoast Health (FSH) has announced their intent to sell the Community Campus building and surrounding 34 acres to the City of Portsmouth. Following a three-year strategic planning process and a goal to maintain its original vision as a multi-tenant non-profit center, while adding new resources to benefit the community, the foundation has determined the city to be the ideal buyer to manage the campus. Since 1984, the core mission of the Foundation for Seacoast Health has been to promote health and wellness throughout the seacoast and enrich the lives of citizens through communi-

ty-based support and services, many of which were made possible with the construction of the Community Campus. The foundation’s formal mission statement is, “To lead the advancement of a healthy community through initiatives that impact and promote the wellbeing of seacoast residents.” FSH CEO Deb Grabowski explained the decision to move the purchase and sale process forward with the city. “The Foundation’s Board of Trustees agreed during our lengthy strategic planning process that in

order to better serve our mission and return to our roots as a grantmaking organization, it was time to divest ourselves

as property managers of the Community Campus. We have explored several options with interested parties and unani-

“Abstracting the Seacoast” at Historical Society

PORTSMOUTH On October 1, the work of five contemporary artists will be on display in “Abstracting the Seacoast” at Portsmouth Historical Society. The artists — Dustan Knight, Tom Glover, Peter Cady, Barbara Adams, and Brian Chu — have challenged themselves to create new ways of portraying and abstracting their appreciation of this unique coastal area. In five highly individual styles, “Abstracting the Seacoast” evokes the smell of the salt marsh, the call of seagulls, and the crash of the waves along the coast. It brings to mind the bustle of the docks loading and unloading, while the ubiquitous Moran tugboats chug down the river. Historic Portsmouth, with its venerable red brick buildings, narrow side alleys, and bright, busy Market Square dissolves into the softer natural world of silver pocket beaches and deep pine and birch woods. All these

impressions have been incorporated into this inspiring exhibition by these artists. Each artist approaches the possibilities of abstracting the Seacoast differently. Peter Cady has spent a lifetime observing the marshes, woods, and shore of the Seacoast, while recently he has been exploring use of collage to express his vision of these treasured places. Tom Glover works to incorporate into his paintings what he has learned from John Laurent, Walt Kuhn, Charles Woodbury, and Richard Diebenkorn, and then tries to keep in mind the historical context of this area as he works. Barbara Adams has always treasured the historic buildings of Portsmouth; the connection with her fellow artists in working on this exhibition inspired her to newly creative and energetic visions of the city. In yet another approach, Dustan Knight explores the territory between a literal representation of

Woodman Museum Fall Speaker Series 2021 DOVER The Woodman Museum Fall Speaker series kicks off Wednesday, October 6, featuring five amazing speakers, each Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. through November 3 at the museum at 182 Central Avenue, Dover. On October 6, author Olga Morrill kicks off the Fall speaker series at the Woodman Museum with an open discussion about colonial Dover in the early 17th century. Olga is currently working on an historical fiction series called The Vagabond Trilogy which is firmly based in fact and involves real people and events that occurred in the Piscataqua Region at that time. Two of the three books are now published. Book 1 Vagabond Quakers: Northern Colonies (Morrill Fiction 2017) begins on Dover tions at Theatre by the Sea and Prescott Park Arts Festival, including “Oklahoma”, “Guys and Dolls”, “Carnival”, “1776”, “Starshine”, “Pippin”, “Godspell”, and “Bus Stop”. Visit Pontine’s website at to purchase tickets for the Zoom online performances on Friday, October 1 at 7 p.m., Saturday, October 2 at 3 p.m., and Sunday, October 3 at 2 p.m.

Point in the Massachusetts Bay Colony (now New Hampshire). The early history of the settlement is revealed through the eyes of Puritan magistrate Richard Walderne who immigrated in 1635. Chapters alternate between Richard and two female missionaries for the Society of Friends, Mary Tomkins and Alice Ambrose, who clash with Walderne in December of 1662. The little-known history of Puritan persecution against the Society of Friends is revealed by the shocking violence these women endured. Book 2 Vagabond Quakers: Southern Colonies (Morrill Fiction, May 2021) follows the travels of Mary and Alice as they journey south from New England to Virginia, encountering new adventures and more persecution. Copies are available to purchase in paperback and Kindle formats through Amazon or borrow the books from your local library. Terry Nelson will present on Wednesday, October 13. In his book Hidden History of New Hampshire Seacoast author Terry Nelson reveals many of these fascinating stories. Meet the Minister and early religious founder who was involved in an armed confrontation in Dover with another preacher in 1640. Find out about the one-time

Rochester assistant principal who became a world-famous business leader and ended up meeting President Grover Cleveland. Learn about the Atkinson Academy, the second co-educational school in America and likely it’s oldest continuously operating schoolhouse, as well as the “pile of Rocks” that halted a multi-million-dollar high school building project in Windham. Join Terry to hear of these, and many other, hidden stories. Join Michael Bruno, Author of Crusing New Hampshire History: A guide to New Hampshire’s Historical Markers on October 20 for a fascinating lecture about some of the 255 New Hampshire state roadside highway markers, featured in his book. Michael will take a deeper dive into stories and history behind select markers, and the background of the famous people, places, and events in New Hampshire History that they represent. Admission is $10 (or buy all five lectures for $25), and members are free. For tickets, call 603-742-1038 or purchase at the event. Masks are not required for vaccinated individuals.

~ Ask The Computer Lady ~ Dear Computer Lady, I am using Windows backup to keep my files backed up. I have found where my pictures, documents and favorites are stored, but I am not sure where the emails and contacts are kept. I am using Thunderbird, and when I asked at the store, the tech told me that Thunderbird messages can’t be backed up or transferred. If this is true, I need to find a new email program, I need my messages and contacts. Thank you, Debbie Dear Debbie, Not only is it possible to backup and/or transfer your thunderbird files, it is easier than most email programs. Thunderbird saves your personal information like messages and contacts in a set of files and folders called a “Profile”. All you have to do is find and backup and/or copy the profile folders and you will be backed up. Thunderbird can actually show you where your profile folders are located. Here is how to get that information: 1. Open Thunderbird. 2. Click on the menu icon (3 horizontal lines in the upperright corner) point to “Help” and click on “Troubleshooting Information” 3. In the, “Application

Basics” section, find the “Profile Folder” section and click on the “Show Folder” button. 4. This will open the folder containing all your files, and the location of that folder will be displayed in the address bar. If you want to make the backup simple, just backup the entire folder named, Users on your C: drive and you will have all the files you need. Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, I have a desktop computer with Windows 10. I am trying to set up a program that needs me to enter the IP address. How do I find the IP address of my computer? Thank you, Traci Dear Traci, Every computer that is connected to a network, or the internet needs an IP address. Fortunately, there are a couple of ways to find it in Windows 10. Lets start by looking in the Control Panel. 1. Click on the “Start” icon (the white flag) and type “Control Panel” then click on “Control Panel in the search menu that appears. 2. In the Control Panel, click on “Network and Internet”. (If you don’t see “Network and Internet” click next to “View by:” and select “Category”.

Click on the blue word to the right of “Connections: and a status box will open. 5. Click on the “Details” button in that status box and another box will open. Your IP address will be in that list. Next, we will look in the Windows 10 “settings” app to find the IP address. This might be a little easier to find than the Control Panel. 1.

Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, I belong to a quilting group and need to send all 12 girls updates and messages. I’m having trouble grouping the contacts together under a quilting group. It takes so much time to send each one individually. I use a mini iPad and use my gmail account. I have googled some instructions but for some reason this old brain can’t follow those directions. Would you have clearer directions for me to follow. Thanks, Barb

Dear Barb, Creating a group in Gmail is a lot easier than sending 12 emails one at a time. Lets see how we can do this. First, it is easier to do on your computer if you have access to one, but it can be done on your iPad as well. 1. To start, open your web browser on either your computer or iPad and go to com/contacts. This will display your Google Contacts with a list in the main section of the window, and navigation links in the left column. 2. Click on “Labels” in the left column. 3. Click on “Create Label” in the left column. 4. Type a name for your group in the box provided, then click the “OK” button. You will now have an empty group (now called Labels) with no members. 5. Now, go back to your list of contacts (Click “Contacts” in the left column) and click or tap on the name of the contact that you want to add to your group. 6. When the contact’s details are displayed in a smaller pop-up window, click on the icon with three vertical dots in the upper-right corner. 7. In the drop-down menu, find the section called, “Change Labels” and click on the name of the group you want to add your contact to, A check mark will appear in front of the group name. The next time you want to send an email to your quilting group, just type the name of your label in the “To:” section and the email will be addressed to the entire group. Elizabeth

Hello Computer Lady, You are such a help to both newbies and experienced. My question is actually for my wife. She, unfortunately, encountered a ransomware bug a couple years ago. It encrypted her photos and documents. She didn’t pay the ransom. Since then she has used the same computer but is lax about backing the drive up. Some of the docs and pics are still encrypted and we wonder if backing it up would be a problem, ie with the ransomware possibly still on her system? We hate to delete the encrypted photos etc as we are hoping on hope that a fix might be found. Those photos are old, old family pics that cannot be replaced easily. Any ideas how to approach the backup problem? Thanks, Don Dear Don, This is an excellent question! First, the encrypted files themselves are not a danger to your computer, and you can continue to back them up without worry. And, there might be a chance you can restore those old photos in time. I know that Emsisoft at has figured out how to recover some of the encrypted files. You can check it out on their website. Second, I just want to caution you to make sure that you have completely removed the ransomware from the computer so that new files won’t be encrypted. Also, you want to make sure you have a good security software on the computer to prevent future infections. Again, Emsisoft at will do an excellent job of protecting your computer. I hope this helps, Elizabeth

Bernier-Gelinas FUNERAL HOME

Kittery, ME We are often asked by the families we serve, here at JS Pelkey & Son and Bernier Funeral Homes, why certain expressions and traditions exist in the funeral service industry. One of the most often asked questions is “Why send flowers to a memorial service or funeral, aren’t they just a waste of money?” Well nothing could be further from the truth. As my friend Todd Van Beck recently wrote in an article: Flowers are sent to funerals for several reasons. Flowers are a means of expression. It is often difficult for those mourning a death to put feelings into words. Flowers are a visual expression of love, sympathy, and respect. They are a way of lending support and sharing the burden of grief. In addition to sending flowers to the funeral, there is a growing trend to send flowers to the home of the bereaved after the service. Some people also send flowers to the church in memory of the deceased. Flowers create a background of warmth and beauty which adds to the dignity and consolation of the service. Those who have attended services where there were no flowers have noted that something was

missing – that the funeral was depressing. The funeral meets the bereaved’s need for support. Death throws people into despair and depression by separating them from one who has provided love, companionship, and security. The funeral and customs provide the means by which those close to them can give their support and share their suffering. The funeral period provides for the expression of sorrow. Only through talking about the past can the bereaved person realize the extent of the relationship with the deceased, and accept the loss and suffering. Only through weeping and talking to good listeners can they release their grief and feelings of guilt and hostility. Experts in grief therapy believe that it can be expressed best through rites, rituals, and ceremonies. The ceremony deals primarily with intellectual concepts and doesn’t fully engage the

There are three points to be stressed, finally, in connection with the tradition of funeral flowers. First, the role of flowers are both symbolic and aesthetic. They add great value to the richness and meaning of the ritual. Second, flowers represent sympathy extended to the bereaved. Third, flowers are sent to both the living and the dead. They are sent to the living as comfort and as tokens of respect for the deceased. We, at the JS Pelkey & Son and the Bernier Funeral Homes, hold the value of the work our local florists do in very high regard. We always encourage the families we serve to contact a local florist directly. Certainly there are national floral outlets that can be reached with a simple Google search but, honestly, the quality of these products are often substandard. Simply click the “Send Flowers” tab on our website and you will be directed to our list of trusted florists. Please call us about any questions with which we may help.

Global Organizations Encourage People to Get Their Eyes Checked by World Sight Day WORLDWIDE To celebrate World Sight Day, October 14, leading global vision organizations have launched the #LoveYourEyes campaign, encouraging one million people globally to get their eyes checked. Global vision nonprofit OneSight is supporting this effort through numerous programs: global vision activities; U.S. vision clinics; United Nations Eye Event; Nickelodeon Kid’s Partnership; social campaign; and a live New York City event. For many, vision care is in reach. But for 1.1 billion

people globally, vision care – eye exams, medical care and glasses – is not. This World Sight Day, everyone should consider how best to check their vision and seek the vision care they need, even if they can’t afford it, resources are available. Important World Sight Day Vision Steps: Get regular comprehensive eye exams. If you can’t afford one, there are resources to help; Know your family’s eye health history understanding if anyone has been diagnosed with an eye disease or condition, since some are hereditary; Wear protective eyewear when playing sports

or doing activities around the home; Wear sunglasses that block 99-100% of ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation; Practice workplace eye safety. OneSight is one of the leading global organizations providing vision care to the 1 in 7 people (1.1 billion globally) who need access. To date, OneSight has built 195 sustainable vision centers, hosted 1,950 charitable vision clinics, worked in 53 countries, served 10 million people directly, and provided vision care access to more than 42 million people globally.

WDH Designated Safe Place for Mental Health, Substance Use Disorders DOVER Wentworth-Douglass Hospital has received designations as a safe place for those who struggle with mental health and substance use issues. The hospital has been designated a “Recovery Friendly Workplace” by Governor Chris Sununu, and a mental health “PLACE” by the Dover Mental Health Alliance. The two separate designations signify organizations that support their employees and customers in creating a safe, judgement-free, supportive atmosphere for those battling substance use and mental health issues. “Wentworth Douglass has long been a leader in New Hampshire in supporting those who struggle with both mental

health and substance use issues, and these designations affirm our commitment to aggressively helping our community members through these challenges,” said Assistant Vice President of Behavioral Health at Wentworth-Douglass, Kellie Mueller, M.Ed. Launched in 2018 by Governor Sununu, New Hampshire’s

Recovery Friendly Workplace (RFW) is a state initiative that promotes individual and workplace wellness by creating work environments that further the mental and physical well-being of employees.

Lunch & Learn: Utilizing Veterans Benefits to Pay for Care PORTSMOUTH The Seacoast Village Project is hosting “Lunch & Learn: Utilizing Veterans Benefits to Pay for Care” featuring elder care consultant Nancy Euchner on Tuesday, October 5 at noon. The virtual program is part of Seacoast Village Project’s monthly Lunch & Learn medical decision-making series and will be held via Zoom video conference. The program is free and open to the public but requires advance registration. A common misconception is that you need to be retired from the military to be eligible for benefits. In this program, presenter Nancy Euchner will define eligibility criteria for benefits, distinguish between benefits linked to disability and those more broadly available and introduce participants to Veterans resources in New Hampshire. Nancy Euchner is a nurse and elder care consultant and the founder of AgeQuest, a care consulting practice in Portsmouth. Euchner received

her training as a nurse and geriatric nurse practitioner at SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, NY, and was a Pew Fellow for Advanced Health Policy Studies at Boston University. Euchner is also a founding member and volunteer with the Seacoast Village Project. The Seacoast Village Project is a network of older adults working together to get connected, get smart and help each other out as they grow older in their homes and communities. Founded in 2018 and based on a national Village Movement model of neighbor-helping-neighbor, the Seacoast Village Project is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to making “aging in place” a reality by supporting the social, educational, and practical needs of older adults living independently.

use disorders can grow and succeed. Designated businesses provide information on resources to employees and their families, establish connections with local support organization, train employees on various drug policies, and participate in various committees and events, among other requirements. The “PLACE” designation is assigned by the Dover Mental Health Alliance, a local group seeking to help community members both recognize the signs of someone experiencing a mental health challenge and be able to respond to those incidents appro-

priately. Designated organizations offer employees mental health first aid training, maintain a list of local resources, and provide a safe space “without judgment or discrimination,” among other requirements. The alliance consists of representatives from local businesses, schools, public safety, religious, and non-profit organizations among others.

Moffatt-Ladd House & Garden Welcomes New Executive Director PORTSMOUTH Previously the Director of Operations at the Millyard Museum in Manchester, Jeff Barraclough is now Executive Director of Moffatt-Ladd House & Garden in Portsmouth. “The Moffatt-Ladd House is a beautiful site with a lot of history, and I am thrilled to be here,” said Barraclough, who will remain president of the NH Heritage Museum Trail. Formed in 2014 as a way to share resources and better promote their respective collections, programs and events, The Trail features 21 museums, which recently welcomed the Moffatt-Ladd House as its newest member. “The Moffatt-Ladd House & Garden is excited to be the newest member of the NH Heritage Museum Trail,” Barraclough said. “We look forward to partnering and collaborating with this great group of museums and historic sites across the state.” Regarding what attracted

him to the Moffat-Ladd House, Barraclough cited it as “an important historic site and one of America’s finest Georgian urban merchant estates.” “The house was built in 1763 and was the home of William Whipple, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, who lived here throughout the Revolution,” he explained. “The estate also includes extensive historic gardens and a horse chestnut tree planted in 1776 by Whipple after returning from Philadelphia.” To learn more, visit www. and

Recent College Graduate Makes A Difference for Chase Home NORTH HAMPTON / PORTSMOUTH After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis last fall, North Hampton resident Cole Schmitz had more than four months before his job started in New York City, which he put to good use. “I ran different events off-campus in the St. Louis area with college students and collected donations to raise money for nonprofits,” he said. Throughout the spring, they raised approximately $13,500 for various causes, one of which included The Chase Home in Portsmouth. Founded in 1877, The Chase Home in Portsmouth serves at-risk youth annually through prevention, early intervention, residential and community-based programs. Some youth are served in the community while others live at The Chase Home. “I have been incredibly fortunate to have fantastic educational opportunities and guidance from my mentors throughout my life,” he said. “Many other people do not have the same possibilities, so nonprofits

like The Chase Home exist to try and give kids a fighting chance.” In addition to The Chase Home, other organizations for whom Schmitz helped to raise money included Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Research, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Great St. Louis Area, and Ronald McDonald House Charities. “It’s crazy looking back on how much the community could do, given I only ran the events for three months,” he noted. “Someone in the grade below took over my position, so I know the legacy will continue to live

2021 Governor’s Arts Awards Celebrated October 26 STATEWIDE The N.H.

This year, a special catego-

ry, the Silver Lining Resilience Awards, will be awarded to one entity from each Executive Council district to honor creative and innovative solutions that were implemented and supported as a way of offsetting challenges brought about by the pandemic. Those awardees are: District 1 Women’s Rural Entrepreneurial Network, Bethlehem; District 2 - N.H. Dance Institute, Keene; District 3 - Seacoast Repertory Theatre, Portsmouth; District 4 - theatre KAPOW, Manchester; District 5 - Andy’s Summer Playhouse, Wilton. The New Hampshire 2021 Governor’s Arts Award celebration will take place at StudioLab in Derry on October 26, beginning at 5 p.m. Gov. Chris Sununu is scheduled to host the ceremony, which will include both live music and videos profiling awardees. The free event will be livestreamed to reach the broadest audience possible. The N.H. Governor’s Arts Awards are given every other

year. While the awards are nonmonetary, they publicly recognize outstanding contributions to the state’s arts and cultural life made by individuals, organizations and communities. André Belanger of Berlin designed and created the Governor’s Arts Awards themselves, which echo the N.H. State House Eagle, widely considered the first piece of public art in the state. Silver Lining Awards were created by R.P. Hale, an interdisciplinary artist and state arts councilor. To be eligible for nominations, individuals must reside in New Hampshire or have made significant contributions to the arts while living in New Hampshire; nominated organizations, cities and towns must be physically located in New Hampshire. The N.H. Governor’s Arts Awards are supported entirely through private funding. To learn more, visit n ha r ts/a r tsa nd a r t ists/ga a/ index.htm.

on, and plenty of good will come from it.” In looking to the future, Scmitz expressed enthusiasm for his job at Investment Bank Guggenheim Partners, which he said does “a great job encouraging company participation in nonprofits.” “Last summer during my

internship there, our community service day focused on helping high schools in the NYC area write their college application letters,” he said. “I will continue to volunteer through the company, but I also plan on finding new opportunities in the NYC area.” For Schmitz, his commitment to philanthropy reflects

in part participation in team sports throughout his life, experiences that demonstrated how individuals who work together can achieve more success. “I believe working with nonprofits is similar to being a team player,” he said. “If everyone does their See SCHMITZ page 8...
