Prescott Park Arts Receives $100,000 Challenge Grant PORTSMOUTH – Prescott Park Arts Festival reports that it has received a $100,000 challenge grant for its capital campaign. Sean Mahoney, co-chairman of the capital campaign committee, noted that, “We are really grateful to the generosity and thoughtfulness of this donor, because this challenge creates a great opportunity to leverage giving to the campaign. Every dollar donated up to $100,000 will be matched.” The “Believe in Magic” capital campaign, as the Festival is calling its fundraising effort, has a goal of $1.3 million for capital improvements intended to enhance the festival performance experience for audience members and performers. A successful conclusion to the campaign will mean that the facilities that the Festival uses in city-owned Prescott Park to present its family-friendly performances throughout the summer will be updated to meet the needs of visitors to the Park and upgraded to a more professional level on par with the quality of the performances. These improvements include renovations to the Pavilion building which

houses the public restrooms and the concession kitchen. The new concession kitchen will be able to provide healthier food, faster and with more options available to the public. The project is a public/

private partnership with the City of Portsmouth, and groundbreaking on the building is expected to begin in late October, to be completed in spring 2014. Another goal is to place a

seasonal fabric covering over the stage that will not only address safety issues and concerns with performers and actors exposed to intense sun and light rain, it will mean that the festival can use professional-quality light and sound systems which can only be installed under covering. “The need for these improvements was underscored this past season,” explained Ben Anderson, executive director of the Festival. “We had several rain cancellations and rain delays. Some of these cancellations and delays might have been prevented had we had a new stage covering. Without it, the festival continues to face serious safety issues resulting from a slippery stage, use of electronics and other issues resulting from full exposure to heat and wet conditions.” Steve Marchard, the other

co-chairman of the capital campaign committee said, “Prescott Park Arts Festival is part of what makes Portsmouth so special. This campaign is something that we can all get behind. These improvements will not only improve the appearance of the buildings in the park, they will have a long term impact on the fiscal health of organization, and therefore on the Portsmouth community as a whole.” Mahoney added, “Through the generosity of many donors in the Seacoast community, we’ve raised about 80 percent of the capital campaign goal. We hope that those who have not joined in yet, will do so soon. Now is the perfect time.” “We look forward to being able to open the season with all See GRANT page 2...

ARA Speaks on Hotel in War-time

DURHAM – The Active Retirement Association offers programs reflecting the many interests of people 50+ years old, retired or not. Please join us to learn more about the ARA and our fall activities at the October General Meeting, Monday, Oct. 14, 1:30 p.m., at the Durham Evangelical Church, 114 Dover Road (Route 108) in Durham. The program will feature Carl Lindblade of the UNH Hospitality Management Department, speaking on “A Hotel Goes to Peace, Not War.” This presentation focuses on the 1944 International Monetary Conference at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, NH. In preparation for the conference, the resort, which had been closed because of the

war, was quickly reopened and hastily staffed and redecorated. Much of the economic turmoil of today is related to the topics considered at Bretton Woods: The World Bank, The International Monetary fund, and currency stabilization. Carl Lindblade has served as a delegate to the 1995 White House Conference on Travel and Tourism, Interim Director of the NH office of Travel and Tourism Development, and President of the NH Lodging and Restaurant Association, and has been recognized as Innkeeper of the Year, Travel Person of the Year, and American Hotel and Lodging Association Volunteer of the Year.

Invasion From Mars Returns PORTSMOUTH – Phylloxera Productions and The Players’ Ring is pleased to announce the seventy-fifth anniversary recreation of the most notorious radio broadcast of all time, “Invasion from Mars!” Seventy five years ago, on the evening of Oct. 30, 1938, CBS radio, and The Mercury Theatre Players, presented a radio adaptation of “The War of the Worlds” by H. G. Wells. Within minutes of the beginning of that broadcast, as much as 25 percent of the population of the United States believed that Earth was being invaded by Mars. Pockets of pandemonium broke out across

America. Starting Oct. 11, “Invasion from Mars!” reproduces that broadcast exactly as it happened, occasionally pausing to tell the stories of some listeners who believed that the broadcast was real. The “Invasion from Mars!” script is an original by Howard W. Koch, with additional material by Gary Locke. Invasion from Mars runs Oct. 11 to Oct. 27 at The Players’ Ring, 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, 7 p.m. on Sundays Oct. 13 and 20, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27.

“Horses to Horsepower” Presents the Majesty of Old-Time Engines HAMPTON – If you look closely while driving along back roads, you can see abandoned trucks and cars in the woods, in dirt lanes, and in fields. They are the detritus of a former age, objects that have outlived their useful life. However, there is certain majesty in these discarded objects. It is this majesty hat painter William Turner has captured and given a new life and purpose to our former companions. The paintings of William C. Turner will be on exhibit in Lane Memorial Library in Hampton during the month of October. Turner paints the effects of time – the weathered look, the patterns of rust, the crooked bumpers that have

transformed what was a once useful tool into something now discarded for newer editions. “Symbolically these machines take on a human-like quality. The bumper may be distorted into a crooked smile; the grill a bent out of shape nose; the headlight, sometimes broken, resemble eyes,” explains Turner. “Each one, like us, is allotted a limited time to perform a mission and hopefully grow old with grace and dignity.” The Lane Memorial Library will host an artist reception for Mr. Turner on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 6:30 p.m. with light refreshments provided. The Lane Library Weston Gallery is located at 2 Academy Ave. in Hampton.

Free Play Reading Explores Modern Art at Players’ Ring PORTSMOUTH – “Red,” by John Logan, winner of the 2010 Tony Award for best play, is the next entry in Generic Theater’s monthly playreading series at the Players’ Ring, 105 Marcy Street in Portsmouth. The New York Times describes “Red” as “a study in artist appreciation, a portrait of an angry and brilliant mind that asks you to feel the shape and texture of thoughts.” The reading, featuring Alan Huisman and Bretton Reis, will take place on Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art: a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly

with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Admission is free.

What’s Your Retirement “Contingency Plan?” You probably have thought about what you’d like to do during your retirement years. But all your plans probably depend, to at least some extent, on your financial situation. What happens if you reach the age at which you wish to retire and you just don’t have the money you thought you’d have? If this occurs, it’s time for “Plan B.” What does that look like? Here are a couple of possibilities: Continue working. If you like your job, you may not mind working an extra year or so. You’ll be bringing in more income and contributing more to your 401(k) or other retirement account — and, perhaps almost as importantly, you may be able to avoid tapping into these retirement accounts, thus giving them more time to potentially grow. (However, once you turn 70½, you’ll need to begin taking withdrawals from your 401(k) and a traditional IRA.) But if you are really not enamored with the

idea of working any longer, you might find that even the ability to “beef up” your retirement plans for another couple of years isn’t much consolation. Adjust your retirement lifestyle. It’s pretty simple: If you don’t save as much as you had planned for retirement, you probably can’t do all the things you wanted to do as a retiree. For example, you may not be able to travel as much, or pursue your hobbies to the extent you’d like. Clearly, you’d like to avoid these “retirement contingency plans.” To do so, though, you’ll need to take steps well before you retire. And the most important move you can make may be to contribute as much as you can possibly afford to your IRA and your 401(k) or other employersponsored retirement plan. During the last several years before you wish to retire, you may be in a strong position to “max out” on these plans because, at this stage of your life, your income may be at its highest point, your children may be grown and you may even have

“retired” your mortgage. If you still have money left with which to invest, you may want to look at other tax-advantaged vehicles that can be used for retirement. But while it’s important to put in as much as possible to your retirement accounts, you need to do more than that — you also must put the money in the right investments within these accounts. Your exact investment mix should be based on your individual risk tolerance and time horizon, but, as a general rule, these investments must provide you with the growth potential you’ll need to accumulate sufficient resources for retirement. Of course, as you know, investments move up and down. You can’t prevent this, but you’ll certainly want to reduce the effects of volatility as much as possible when you enter retirement. Consequently, during your final working years, you may need to adjust your retirement accounts by shifting some of your assets (though certainly not all) from growth-oriented vehicles to income-producing ones.

dREAm m BiggER. do moRE.

It’s a good idea to have contingency plans in place for virtually every endeavor in life — and paying for your retirement years is no different. But if you can make the right moves to avoid the contingency plans in the first place, then so much the better.
