GRANITE VIEWS STEPHEN RENO
Know who you are Rarely does Internet wisdom — those little witticisms, vignettes, or aphorisms — engage my attention, but one instance did the other day. According to the account, a United Airlines desk agent was dealing with the disappointed passengers on a canceled flight and attempting to rebook them when a fellow shoved his way to the head of the queue, slapped his boarding pass on the desk and said, “I must be on this flight and I must be in first class.” The agent respectfully replied that she’d attend to his request as soon as she’d dealt with those ahead of him. At that point he bellowed, “Do you know who I am?” Again with grace and a smile, the agent made an announcement across the whole terminal: “There is a customer here at Gate 14 who does not know who he is. If anyone does, would they please come here and let him know?” Any of us who has had a flight cancelled can recall the feelings of disappointment and frustration. Hopefully, we’ve never behaved as this fellow did. However, as New York Times columnist David Brooks notes in his new book, The Road to Character, knowing who you are is important. But you need to know who you really are. That’s where the definition of “humility” comes in. Humility isn’t self-effacement, or worse, self-denigration. Instead, it is a realistic knowledge of your character, with both its positive and negative aspects. It is knowing what you know, knowing what you don’t know, and having the honesty to acknowledge that there are things you don’t know you don’t know. In short, we are fallible and limited. There will always be someone who comes along who is more talented, more intelligent, more handsome and more gracious than we are. But each of us has a contribution to make, a role to play, whether on the hidden stage of our family hearth, the workplace, the community in which we volunteer or the elected office we might hold. Together, we are pieces of a mosaic that, from the perspective of distance, comprise the picture that is our interwoven state picture. The challenge is having enough ego to do what we need to do without letting that ego define who we are. So, next time my flight is cancelled, I’ll try to “possess my soul in peace,” and acknowledge that I am not the most important person on that flight.

NEWS & NOTES Primary update
The race is tightening in the Democratic primary while recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions and a debate over the Confederate flag have supplied fodder for candidate sound bites. Meanwhile, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was the latest to join an already crowded field of Republican candidates for president when he announced his bid on June 30. There are now 18 candidates, 14 of whom are Republicans, but Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have yet to announce official bids. The last time the country saw 17 candidates vie for the presidency was 1976, when there was a crowded Democratic field. State polls currently show former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at the head of the Republican pack with billionaire Donald Trump in second. While former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remains the frontrunner in the Democratic primary, her second-place opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, is gaining on her. In a recent CNN/ WMUR poll, Sanders is tailing Clinton in New Hampshire by 8 percent. And a Bloomberg/St. Anselm poll shows Sanders has gained 6 points since last month among Granite Staters but shows the gap between him and Clinton to be about 32 percent. Sanders, who recently visited with town hall meetings at Nashua Community College and New England College and a house party in Bow, may face difficulty getting his name on the New Hampshire ballot, due to a strange state filing process, since he won his Senate seat as an independent, NHPR reported. After the recent race-related violence that resulted in nine dead at a black church in South Carolina, Gov. Nikki Haley is working with state lawmakers to remove the Confederate flag from the statehouse. NHPR reported Clinton applauded the effort and called the flag a symbol of the nation’s racist past. During a recent stop in New Hampshire, Sen. Marco Rubio commented on a Supreme Court ruling in favor of preserving the Affordable Care Act in its current form, saying he disagrees with the court’s decision and calling the law deeply flawed. Rubio held town hall meetings in Exeter and Salem. While many candidates were HIPPO | JULY 2 - 8, 2015 | PAGE 4
vocal in their opposition to the Obamacare ruling, fewer were as outspoken when it came to the Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states. Among its most outspoken opponents was Lousiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who criticized the ruling as following public opinion polls while “trampling” on states’ rights.
After the New Hampshire House and Senate passed their 2016-2017 state budget without the changes asked for by Gov. Maggie Hassan, she vetoed the bills as promised. NHPR reported the House and Senate debated the budgets along party lines ahead of the vote, with Democrats calling for an accounting of Medicaid expansion past 2016 and a $12 million pay raise for state employees while Republicans argued in favor of sticking to their guns. After vetoing the budget, Hassan reiterated her stance against the business tax cuts passed by Republican budget writers and said she hopes negotiations on the budget will begin right away. However, Republican leaders suggested they wait until revenue numbers are available in October or at least until after the July 4 weekend.
The New Hampshire chapter of the AFL-CIO, the state’s largest union, has received a new president after an appeal of the initial election results. NHPR reported Mark MacKenzie has been the president of the union since 1989, but in a surprising turn of events, Glenn Brackett will be taking the helm July 1. Brackett, a business agent from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 2320, and one of the lead negotiators during the recent FairPoint strike, received hundreds of votes from union members who had marked their ballots with check marks instead of the required X’s. The votes were initially discounted and MacKenzie was declared the winner by 21 votes. After an appeal to the state election board failed, the national organization ruled in Brackett’s favor.

positives in an electronic certification process required for law enforcement officers before they can administer blood-alcohol tests on DWI suspects. NHPR reported the program incorrectly listed 64 officers as certified when they took the assessment. The attorney general’s office released the names of the officers and said they would do away with the computer tests going forward.
After a new policy released by the White House of no longer threatening families of hostages with prosecution if they pay ransom to their loved ones’ captors, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen will be meeting with the mother of slain New Hampshire journalist James Foley, Diane Foley of Rochester. James Foley was killed last year by Islamic State militants. NHPR reported the meeting with his mother is to hear her views about revised government policies.
Hands free law
In July, New Hampshire will become the 15th state to enact a hands-free law that will prohibit drivers from using hand-held mobile phone devices while driving. NHPR reported the new law also applies to GPS devices, laptops, digital music players and tablets. A Bluetooth headset or a similar hands-free device would be required if a driver wishes to talk on the phone while at the wheel of a moving vehicle. First-time offenders will be charged $100 fines, and authorities will levy $250 fines for second offenses and $500 for sub-
An agreement between the City of Manchester and the teachers’ union shows a Goffstown 7.3-percent increase to base salaries, but when it was initially released it omitted a signing bonus of 3.5 percent of entry-level salary at year’s end, according to the Union Leader.

Officials with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services say they’ve discovered a dense concentration of the invasive plant species milfoil in Turee Pond in Bow. They’ve so far found the plant in 81 lakes, ponds and rivers in the state.
Human Services told lawmakers they expect to overspend this year’s budget. NHPR reported a jump in Medicaid caseloads and in the rate of payments (likely due to the expansion of Medicaid) was not accounted for when the current budget was drafted two years ago. How much the state agency will ultimately spend will be known when financial statements are released at the end of September.
For the first time, women competing in the Exeter Classic and Portsmouth Criterium bike races will be offered the same prize money as as men who compete in similar races. NHPR reported that organizers used to claim there were not enough female racers to offer a race or equal prize money, but regional directors in New England and California are convincing national and international governing bodies to change their policies. On June 23, about 50 professional female bike racers competed for a purse of $1,225 distributed among the top 10 finishers of the Exeter Classic.
Two 17-year-old hikers from Amherst, Elizabeth Silvis-Chandley and Elizabeth Maloney, found themselves hiking in the dark on Pack Monadnock. NHPR reported they called 911 and Fish and Game officers used GPS coordinates from the girls’ cell phones to locate them just north of the summit after 10 p.m. The two teens began their hike at 6 p.m. on June 25 at the Wapack Trail in Greenfield. It grew dark shortly after they summited North Pack Monadnock and they began to use flashlight apps on their smartphones to see where they were going.

Dispensary taking root
The state’s central medical marijuana dispensary shares its plans
sary is, we are not going to have exclusively high-THC-concentration cannabinoids,” Franciullo said. “If you go to a dispensary in California or Colorado, you get to choose from AK-47 or Purple Kush — the drugs that are intended just to get you as high as possible.”
By Ryan Lessard
What is likely to be the largest medical marijuana dispensary operator in the state, Prime ATC, says it may locate the retail part of the business in Manchester, with plans to run it like a pharmacy and grow cannabis organically.
Who is Prime?
Where will Prime be?
Last month, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced it has selected three applicants to operate the state’s four Alternative Treatment Centers, or medical marijuana dispensaries. Sanctuary ATC will operate in the North Country while Temescal Wellness will be located in two regions carved out by DHHS: the area encompassing both the seacoast and lakes regions, and the southwest region of the state stretching as far north as Hanover. Perhaps the most coveted region for dispensary operators is “Geographic Region 2,” the area including both Merrimack and Hillsborough counties. With more than 550,000 residents and the cities of Concord, Manchester and Nashua, it has the highest population of all the regions where a dispensary operator will have a statutory monopoly, and Prime Alternative Treatment Centers of New Hampshire is it. Brett Sicklick is slated to be its chief operations officer. He said Prime is still looking for a location. “I think Manchester would be probably ideal at this point, but we’re looking for a space that will be easily accessible for everybody and has the right layout,” Sicklick said. Prime ATC CEO John Glowik says his company is scouting locations in Manchester and Merrimack for the retail building and locations in Milford and Peterborough for cultivation. He estimates it will cost about $6 million to $8 million for the buildout of the two locations and most of that cost will go toward the cultivation facility. No talks of permits have yet been initiated with the Manchester planning board by Prime ATC representatives. “For the cultivation facility, we’re looking

at probably a little under 40,000 square feet,” Sicklick said. “[For the] retail location, I think we’re looking at somewhere that’s gonna be right around 3,000 square feet. … We’re trying not to be… tucked away in an industrial area, at least for the retail portion.” Prime and the other selected dispensary operators must submit their final registration application by Aug. 27. A review period will follow to make sure operators comply with regulations. Once the ATCs are registered, they can begin cultivating the cannabis plants. DHHS estimates the dispensaries will be up and running by February or March 2016.
How will Prime operate?
Prime ATC of New Hampshire has connections with a dispensary called Prime Wellness of Connecticut. But there’s a major difference between the dispensary in Connecticut and the new one in New Hampshire: vertical integration. Connecticut’s medical marijuana law required separate entities do the cultivation and dispensing, so Prime Wellness of Connecticut and other operators had to buy the cannabis from other companies. This resulted in high prices: about $500 per ounce. Glowik says he expects prices in New Hampshire to be about 20 percent lower than in Connecticut. Prime ATC is aiming for $350 per ounce of marijuana. According to priceof-
weed.com, that’s about the same price as “high quality” black market cannabis in New Hampshire. Sicklick intends to cultivate good quality plants by growing everything organically, in soil. “We won’t be doing any hydroponic cultivation,” Sicklick said. Prime ATC will control what strains of cannabis it grows and how it’s processed and packaged. “Just to have the ability to pick and choose what we believe to be the best delivery methods, especially alternative delivery methods, that’s gonna be a big component of product availability to patients,” Sicklick said. “It’s not just gonna be raw flower that’s meant for either combustion or vaporization. We’re gonna have medically focused alternative delivery methods like transdermal patches, capsules, topical compounds and salves — things that closely resemble traditional medicines.” Dr. Gilbert Franciullo, the chief medical officer for Prime ATC (an unpaid board position) and the head of pain medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, said it will also make products available with a high cannabidiol ratio, or CBD, to tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. “What’s not going to happen in our dispen-
Sicklick is currently the director of operations at Prime Wellness of Connecticut, a separate dispensary run by CEO Thomas Nicholas, an RN who started a number of renal dialysis clinics in Connecticut as well as one in Keene. Some of the experts and sources of funding are shared by the two companies. Glowik has been a longtime business partner and coinvestor with Nicholas, in the Connecticut dispensary and the dialysis businesses. Nicholas said he’s investing in Prime ATC of NH as well. As for the legally required local leaders of the nonprofit dispensary, the most prominent is Franciullo. “My interest in medicine has been opioids, and I have focused my career and my research on the use of opioids to treat chronic pain,” Franciullo said. He was once a vocal opponent of the medical use of marijuana and even wrote editorials criticizing published studies that purported to demonstrate the effectiveness of cannabis. But in recent years, he’s become a born-again medical marijuana advocate. He served on the medical marijuana advisory committee in Vermont ahead of the program’s rollout there. “I got to see that it actually helped a lot of people [in Vermont],” said Franciullo. And he says cannabis for pain treatment has another positive effect: cutting down on opioid addiction and overdose deaths. He pointed to a recent study that showed there was a 25-percent reduction in opioid-related deaths in states that legalized medical marijuana. “That’s an enormous incentive to substitute cannabis for opioids wherever you can,” Franciullo said.
New study says elderly stuck in hospital beds too long By Ryan Lessard
A recent report by the Foundation for Healthy Communities found that hundreds of elderly patients in New Hampshire are HIPPO | JULY 2 - 8, 2015 | PAGE 6
stuck waiting in hospital beds for months after being medically discharged, primarily because they can’t get access to a nursing home bed — and the reasons for that range from lack of adequate insurance to a lack of beds in the facilities that pro-
vide the most in-demand services.
An expensive bed
Shawn LaFrance, the executive director of the Foundation for Healthy Communities, said the study, which involved 21 of
the state’s 26 acute care hospitals, zeroed in on 516 individuals ages 45 and older (most of whom are elderly) who had to stay in the hospital for at least three months after the medical conditions that led to their initial stay were resolved.
“Hospitals are really not places for people to live long-term,” LaFrance said. Overall, that meant a total of 10,277 additional patient days that cost the hospitals about $27.2 million. “It's much more expensive to live in a hospital room than any place else,” LaFrance said. “Probably the most expensive hotel room in New Hampshire isn’t as expensive as being in an acute care hospital.”

Searching for solutions
A number of commonalities among the patient’s cases in the study were clear to LaFrance, but there’s no silver bullet that can fix the problem. “A lot of this has to do with the availability of different kinds of services. How many different types of long-term care facilities may exist, assisted living, nurs-

ing homes, home health services, as well as how those are paid for by the state can be very influential,” LaFrance said. “Clearly, there’s system issues here.” For example, there’s only one facility in the state that handles both nursing-homelevel care and care for patients with mental disabilities: Glencliff Home. “It’s a limited facility,” LaFrance said. “It’s like a nursing home. You stay until you die. And it’s the only one in the state. People wait to get in there. If they get in, great, but they don’t always get in there before they die.” Todd Bickford, the administrator of Glencliff, says the facility’s 120 beds are regularly full and they have a waiting list of 18 right now, which is slightly higher than the estimated average of 15. Of the patients currently waiting, seven are in hospitals. LaFrance said there are also about four or five nursing homes in the state that have a few beds available for patients with mental illnesses. “But that’s a pretty small number of facilities ... and then the number of beds within the handful that actually serve that population [is limited],” LaFrance said. The study found 13 percent of the patients had mental health or psychiatric needs. In addition to the challenges posed by a limited health-care infrastructure, LaFrance pointed to a need for more education when it comes to creating Advance Directives, or living wills, as well as enrolling in long-term care insurance, which helps pay for nursing home care. “You’ve got to buy that as a separate kind of insurance and pay a premium,” LaFrance said. He said many people don’t understand that traditional health insurance and Medicare don’t cover nursing home fees. And if they do, many still can’t afford that added premium. For now, LaFrance is taking it one problem at a time. He said hospitals are talking with state Medicaid officials about speeding up the qualification process.

For more than two-thirds of the individuals, the reason they couldn’t leave the hospital was that they couldn’t access a nursing home bed. That’s 313 people. Meanwhile, the study showed that about 27 percent of the individuals (142 people) were either uninsured, underinsured or waiting for Medicaid eligibility. LaFrance said that while there was some overlap between the two groups, it’s likely hospital staff filling out the surveys underreported the problem by only citing one of the two factors, when both were applicable. “It’s underrepresenting the problem,” LaFrance said. “It’s a conservative estimate.” While the study included patients 45 years or older, 57 percent of them were older than 65. LaFrance initiated the study last year. “It was, in part, due to hearing anecdotal reports of particular individuals living in the hospitals for really long periods of time and not being able to get out,” LaFrance said. “There was no other data source that could really [shed light on this issue].” In extreme cases, he was hearing of people staying in a hospital for more than a year. LaFrance said he was starting to hear more stories of longer-than-normal hospital stays and from various places, so he decided to create the survey. But, since it was the first study of its kind, there are no historical data to compare the findings with. “It's hard to say if this is better or worse than five years ago or some other time in the past,” LaFrance said. Still, the study serves as a window into a rarely seen and poorly understood problem. And with the population aging in the Granite State, the problem is likely to worsen if underlying causes are left unaddressed. “We’re going to have more folks, potentially, with these needs, but it’s not clear that the systems are in place [to handle them],” LaFrance said.

What are the goals you’re trying to achieve for the Manchester Historic Association? One thing I want to do is try to inject some energy into the Millyard Museum. There are people in Manchester who think history here ended in 1935 when the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company declared bankruptcy. For me, the interesting stuff just got started at that time. The people of Manchester got together and decided they did not want to be subject to the whims of a single, monolithic employer. More than 17,000 people were put out of work when Amoskeag failed. They put together a body and they raised a ton of money and they created an entity called Amoskeag Industries. By doing so, they were able to purchase all of the property on the millyard and, when the people of the city had control, they were able to diversify and bring in different industries so we would not have that threat of one gigantic employer failing. They were so successful in what they did, that, over time, the March of Time newsreel people came to Manchester and they created a short film, which showed in movie theaters all over the world. ... They referred to Manchester as the city that wouldn’t die. … We just put up a display right now celebrating the Manchester Monarchs winning the Calder Cup. … That’s history. You published a book a few years back highlighting Queen City celebrities and some lesser-known heroes. Who was the most inspiring figure to you? You go from the ‘towering titans’ like a Richard McDonald who, with his brother Maurice, founded the McDonald’s hamburger empire, to a Martin Revson who founded Revlon Cosmetics. Those are pretty high on the scale, but there were others who were maybe less celebrated but I believe are noteworthy in their own way. One of them is Manchester historian John Jordan, to whom the book is dedicated. … He’s forgotten more about Manchester than I’ll ever know. He Five favorites Favorite book: The Fifties by David Halberstam Favorite movie: Annie Hall Favorite musician: Jimmy Buffett Favorite food: Anything by my wife. Favorite thing about NH: Manchester.
inspires me more and more to keep learning about the city all the time.
When did you first get into history and Manchester history in particular? I’m the prodJohn Clayton uct of my parents and grandparents. I’m a millrat. My folks worked in the mills, my grandparents owned a rooming house and housed millworkers, so the lore of Manchester was just a part of my growing up. My folks and my grandparents were always really good about explaining what was happening here.
What’s a hidden gem from Manchester’s history that you uncovered in your research that you think everyone should know? Quite honestly, I think the hidden gem is the Millyard Museum. I can’t tell you how many times people will say to me, ‘I never knew this was here’ or ‘What a great place. How come people don’t know about this?’ So, we are the undiscovered gem here in the Millyard Museum and it’s up to me to make sure that we don’t remain undiscovered for long.
What do you have going on at the Millyard Museum these days? We are in the process of putting together a presidential exhibit that will tie in with the primary. We’re going to make a public plea for anything, buttons, bumper stickers, posters, photographs of Manchester people interacting with those who would like to become president — not just this go-around, but previous election cycles. ... We’ve been visited by every president since Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. ... Manchester is a pretty powerful place when it comes to politics.
Any advice for budding historians? Talk to your parents. Talk to your grandparents. They have stories that you may have heard a hundred times and you hope you never hear them again, but talk to them and, this time, really listen, because the secrets to Manchester are in the people who make this the special place that it is. — Ryan Lessard

New Hampshire tourism officials expect more than 15.9 million outof-state visitors this summer, 3 percent more than last summer, and they’re anticipated to spend a little more than $2 billion, also up 3 percent, according to NHPR. More than 40 percent of Granite State visitors come during the summertime — most are from New England, the mid-Atlantic states and eastern Canada, but the number of people visiting from Europe is expected to jump too, by about three percent. QOL Score: +1 Comment: Included among that crowd will be visitors from the United Kingdom, France and Germany, according to the report.
An article in the July 5 issue of Time magazine, “What are we not known for,” listed one lesser-known superlative for each state in the country. So what is New Hampshire not known for? Having the most pizzerias per capita — 3.9 per 10,000 people. QOL Score: 0 (+1 for more pizza choices, -1 because pizza isn’t exactly health food) Comment: The secret’s out — and perhaps it’s the impetus behind the anticipated increase in tourism noted above.

Rent climbing The New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority has released its annual Residential Rental Cost Survey results, NHPR reported. According to the survey, rent has climbed steadily throughout the state in recent years. While median two-bedroom rent is highest in Rockingham ($1,270) and Hillsborough ($1,219) counties, it has grown faster in the North Country, where rent is still among the lowest. NHHFA officials attribute the higher rent in southern parts of the state to the greater number of jobs and low vacancy rates in those areas. And it’s expected to get worse for renters as real estate prices continue to rebound. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The median cost to rent a two-bedroom apartment, plus utilities, in New Hampshire is $1,157 per month.

A report from UNH’s Carsey School says more than one third of New Hampshire children still experience one of the most preventable childhood diseases: tooth decay. Though New Hampshire is ranked above the national average on most measures of pediatric oral health, performance varies considerably by county, as adequate oral health care is particularly challenging for low-income families in the sparsely populated northern region of the state. Coos County suffered the most, according to a follow-up NHPR report, where more than half of thirdgraders had tooth decay in 2014. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Poor oral health can also increase the risk of many serious health problems include stroke and cardiovascular disease. QOL score: 86 Net change: -1 QOL this week: 85

(1) It goes over water in front of the tee and there’s a pond up the right side almost to the green. Big hitters can drive the green, but it’s not easy, as you have to fade it in to an elevated green because if you don’t your ball could land in a cemetery that dates back to colonial times. (2) So the best shot is
left and short of the green to have the best angle in on a short pitch shot.
The Putt: The toughest part of this green is holding it on the approach. It’s small and quick which often leads to being on the back fringe or farther off – making getting down in two a challenge. So big breaks on the putts, so you can go for birdie if you get near on your shot in.

Last week’s column dealt with seeing the glass as half full or half empty. But after what happened to the Celtics on draft night, I think I should have waited a week. Then the “half full” response would start with a Ralph Kramden-like “humina, humina” and take longer to elaborate on than the more succinct “half empty” response, which would go something like this: OHHH … blank … NOT AGAIN!!!!!! That’s because shooting-challenged point guard Terry Rozier at 16 and long-range shooter RJ Harris at 28 pretty much mirrored last year’s selection of Marcus Smart and James Young. That had the masses on talk radio calling for Danny Ainge’s head. And since the new guys were picked in latter slots, who can argue, besides me? Of course most now clamoring were the same people saying playoff experience was much more important than draft position. Well folks, you can’t have it both ways. The other notion was that they took Rozier because it’ll take Marcus Smart to pry one of their three highly regarded young bigs away from Philly. Some were also upset they didn’t take Arkansas’ Bobby Portis at 16. He’s an appealing high motor player, but how is taking an under-sized power forward also not redundant after taking Kelly Olynyk and Jared Sullinger in two of the last three drafts? That’s the problem with all the picks they have: Everything is going to be redundant unless they can get into position to get the quality defensive anchor and alpha scorer they need — which is going to take great draft position or free agency money. Does that mean all the first-round picks accumulated aren’t worth it, as WEEI midday guy Tim Benz suggests? Well, aside from never asking a 5’5” guy basketball talent evaluation questions, no, it doesn’t. It just means that some over-rated how valuable they are or that as in the case of the grumpy radio version of Dan Shaughnessy they don’t understand how to use them. For instance, trading their 29th overall pick to Phoenix last winter for Isaiah Thomas seems like nice value, especially when the original trade they got it from also yielded Tyler Zeller for taking on salary for the Cavs to bring in Kevin Love. The frustrations are created by unrealistic expectations. And contrary to what some were saying, they didn’t come from the Cs. It was the media (me included) and the same type of fan sentiment that said the Sox might win 120 after getting Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez a few winters ago behind it. Danny’s mistake was appearing too desperate to move, so people held out for the moon. And Charlotte almost got it when, due to what
can only be described as a textbook case of temporary insanity, Danny incredibly offered four first-round and two second picks for the ninth pick to take Duke’s Winston Justice. My question is, was he out of his mind? To give that, I’d have to know Winston would become the next Michael Jordan, a fact apparently missed by everyone since he eventually slid to Miami at 10. It’s not that you can’t get a great player down there. Indiana got Paul George there and after a major 1998 slide Paul Pierce went ninth. It’s just that even Jordan wouldn’t have commanded a haul like that coming out of college. And since he’s not as accomplished as a GM as on the court, thankfully he was on the phone to again get it wrong by turning Danny down. Part of the issue is luck, something that, aside from the Pierce slide, they haven’t had much of since trading Gerald Henderson to Seattle for a first-round pick that came up No. 2 in the 1986 lottery. But it was used on illfated Len Bias, and it’s been downhill since. And again, the dice were cold when they couldn’t find a trade partner to move up and Larry Bird took the last potential defensive big off the board by taking Texas seven-footer Myles Turner at 11. Now do you see why I didn’t want them to make the playoffs? The nice end-of-the-year run created an illusion they’re closer than they are, where two moves could get another Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. But they didn’t come with just two moves. It was more like a gazillion trades to finally get in 2007 position, starting with the 2003 trade of Antoine Walker to Dallas. Thus the growth was slow. Yes, playoff experience is valuable, but they didn’t have enough down low defensively or the goto-scorer needed to win big. That could come next year when they’re closer to being a real contender. For now they needed to be lower in the draft to continue building. As for taking Dozier at 16, many say it was a stretch, but considering the hit and miss rate in the middle of the draft, I’m OK with taking the best player available there rather than reaching to fill a need. The last time they did that, they took (not so) Fab Melo at 22, who didn’t last the year. Bottom line: Rome wasn’t built in a day and Danny’s still in the maneuvering phase, which requires patience. So for now the accumulated assets and current redundancies, along with their cap space, can be put to use to keep getting better until the big trade is there to make or one of the next three Brooklyn picks from the KG/Pierce trade hopefully falls into the Top 5.

Jones coming back east The Big Story: The Colts’ Tom Matte did it the other way in a 1965 playoff game emergency and some say Tim Tebow should be one and is masquerading as QB, but when was the last time a quarterback shifted to running back and played a major role in winning a football game? The answer is last Saturday night when Londonderry’s Eric Fairweather ran for 107 yards on 18 carries as the tailback in leading the East to a 29-15 win in the annual CHaD All-Star football game at Saint Anselm. Sports 101: Who holds the record for the most home runs, most RBI and most stolen bases in All-Star Game history? Road Trip of the Week: It goes to the SNHU hoopsters’ four-game summer swing through Greece, where either the Penmen have morphed into a juggernaut or the talent pool from their opponents is as barren as the Greek treasury. Amherst’s Devin Gilligan led SNHU to a narrow 94-35 win over TeleUnicom to kick off a four-game tour with 26 points and then BJ Cardarelli went for 25 in another nail-biter ending with a 112-69 win over AEK basketball club in Game 2. Game 3 was a closer 10680 win over Trikala when Gilligan had 28 and Rodney Sanders 26 more.

The first of the bunch is the USA College Football FCS Preseason All-America Team, which selected UNH’s Sean Goldrich as its first team quarterback. Sports 101 Answer: The All-Star game homer champ is Stan Musial with 6. Ted Williams knocked in the most runs with 12, and with 6 the stolen base king is Willie Mays, who also has the most at-bats, hits, runs, triples, total bases and games played. On This Date – July 2: 1963 – Juan Marichal and 42-year-old Warren Spahn each pitch fifteen scoreless innings before Willie Mays wins it for SF with a 16thinning homer. 1964 – Jose Canseco, steroid-era squealer, is born. 1993 – Mets hurler Anthony Young loses his 25th straight game.

Ralph Kramden: The harebrained main character of the famed 1950s TV show The Honeymooners. The show had him going from one calamity to the next with sidekick Ed Norton and Ralph would always begin explaining his latest half-baked notion gone awry by stammering, “Humina, humina, humina….” Antoine Walker Trade Ancestry Path: To Dallas in 2003 for Raef LaFrenz, Jiri Welsch and a 2004 first-round pick that became Delonte West. Welsch was traded to Cleveland for the 2007 first-round pick later sent to Phoenix for the 2006 pick used to get Rajon Rondo and the huge cap space from Brian Grant’s contract used to fit KG under the cap in 2007. Delonte was traded in 2007 along with No. 5 overall pick (Jeff Green) and Wally Szczerbiak to Seattle for Ray Allen, which also convinced Kevin Garnett the Celtics had enough talent to win it all. Szczerbiak incidentally came in a trade for looney Ricky Davis that also netted the T-Wolves first pick in 2009, which means Ainge used Minnesota’s own pick to get KG from them! The Jordan Draft Record: Unenviable record highlighted by taking 7-footer Kwame Brown first overall in 2001 ahead of Tyson Chandler, Joe Johnson and Zach Randolph. In 2006 it was Adam Morrison at three over Brandon Roy, Rudy Gay and Rondo. 2007: UNC’s Brandon Wright one spot ahead of Joakim Noah. In 2011 it was can’t-shoot-a-lick Bismack Biyombo over Kawhi Leonard.

Bruce Walters, chef/owner of The Black Forest Cafe in Amherst, said a quick and easy way to make any dessert patriotic is with blueberries and strawberries. “We have fresh fruit tarts with strawberries and blueberries and we’ll cut out white chocolate stars to go with it,” he said in a phone interview. Denise Nickerson, owner of The Bakeshop on Kelley Street in Manchester, agrees that colorful fruit makes a festive treat, such as putting blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries on a star-shaped puff pastry with whipped cream. “Find inspiration in everyday treats,” she said in a phone interview. “Just [change] it a bit to go with the Fourth of July theme.” She likes to decorate cookies with mini hot dogs and hamburgers made of icing, top eclairs with sprinkles or dip strawPimiento cheese From the kitchen of Bruce Walters

Barbecues, hamburgers, picnics and hot dogs — that’s what comes to mind when most people think of dining on the Fourth of July. While meat on the grill might be the star, sides and desserts can help complete the day of patriotic revelry. Plus, making a meal with a number of smaller dishes and desserts helps facilitate the flow of eating for a day-long party, says Chelsey Erickson, chef/owner of Finesse Pastries in Manchester. “I like to have a little bit of everything, get a taste of everything and get a variety,” she said, “instead of having one gigantic thing and kind of being full on that.”
2½ pounds medium boiling potatoes, peeled 3 tablespoons cider vinegar 1 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard ½ cup chopped sweet onion Salt and pepper Scallions

berries in white chocolate and then blue sanding sugar. Another easy option for adding a pop of color anywhere is food coloring. Erickson makes a red, white and blue macaron (a vanilla bean ganache inside with one red shell and one blue shell) along with layered berry dishes. She said a little drop of food coloring can go a long way. Use it in the filling of a cream puff or for a bowl of whipped cream to top ice cream. “Anything that has whipped cream in it, just throw a blob of red [or blue] food coloring and it’s Fourth of July,” she said. Although colors can be fun, making everything red, white or blue isn’t the only way to incorporate a patriotic theme into a meal. Walters suggests using classic American flavors to go along with the theme of 1 teaspoon red pepper sauce 1 teaspoon salt 1 whole roasted red pepper, chopped fine (Purchase roasted or roast and peel yourself) Mix all ingredients together with a stand mixer. Serve as spread with crackers or on top of burgers.
Boil potatoes in a large saucepan until just tender, about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on size of potatoes. In a colander, drain potatoes and cool to warm. Cut cooled potatoes into pieces and immediately toss with vinegar. Stir in the mayonnaise, mustard & onion. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Garnish with chopped scallions. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Prepare for the heat and humidity
Tick borne illness can affect both pets and humans. Tick larvae are about the size of this period. Making them hard to detect.
In general, think of dishes that are simple to make, eat and transport. “If we’re taking something to the beach or a cookout, you want something easy to transport [that doesn’t require] a lot of lastminute attention,” Walters said. Whichever dishes you decide to dole out, try serving the food in waves to ensure freshness. “Growing up we would definitely do waves of food too because you’d eat a bunch and you’d be full,” Erickson said. “If you put it all out at once and it doesn't get eaten, in a couple hours everybody’s like, ‘We’re hungry again!’ so we come out with more food.”

One thing to keep in mind for an outdoor meal in July is the inevitable heat and humidity. Do your best to plan for desserts and dishes that won’t fall apart in the heat. “Basically you just want to keep it super light,” Erickson said. “You’re eating a ton of food anyway, it’s hot out, [so] nothing heavy.” Stay away from overly creamy dishes that will melt or spoil, she said, going instead with a plate of watermelon or an array of cookies. They’ll last the whole day and “you don’t have to worry about getting anybody sick or something just completely melting,” she said. Opt for cold or chilled sides, like cucumber salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw, marinated vegetables, sliced tomato topped with basil and corn on the cob with flavored butters. For a finger food to munch on throughout the day, Walters suggested pimiento cheese, a staple item in the South made of cheddar cheese, cream cheese and roasted red pepper. Use it as a spread for crackers or as the topping for a burger. “I think for finger foods … I like easy things like dips,” he said. All it takes is a box of crackers and sliced vegetables to pair with guacamole or hummus.

Outdoor activity ideas for the whole family
The fourth is on a Saturday this year, which means more time for holiday shenanigans — but what do you do when the barbecue is over and the fireworks have yet to begin? The Hippo talked with Chris Webster, downtown Manchester YMCA sports director, for some game ideas both kids and adults love.
Cornhole: Buy this game at the store or make it yourself; how-to tips are online, but Webster says you could do just as well with four bricks (for elevation), six bean bags and two slabs of wood with holes cut in the middle. The game is kind of like the arcade game Skeeball, except it’s simpler — instead of rolling a ball, you’re throwing a
bean bag, and instead of trying to knock it in the 100 or 50 slot, you’re trying to get it in a single hole. The structures are set up opposite one another (like a game of horseshoes) and you have two people per team. A beanbag in the hole is worth three points, one on the board is one point. First to 21 (or 15 or 11) wins. Ladder ball/golf/toss: This game you could make yourself with some PVC piping, but it’s also a good investment to your backyard entertainment because of its portability. It’s similar to horseshoes, cornhole, etc., except instead of beanbags/ horseshoes, you’re throwing two golf balls attached by a piece of string, and you’re trying to wrap them around three steps of the ladder, each of which is worth different points. First to 21 is the winner. Scavenger hunt: Give each kid an item, hide it in the park/yard; first person to find his or her item is the winner.

Water balloon toss: Partners line up, all equidistant apart. They take turns tossing a water balloon to each other. Those who make the catch take a step back, and this continues until only one pair is left. Drip, Drip, Drop: This is like Duck, Duck, Goose, except with water balloons. Players sit in a circle and the person who’s “it” carries a water balloon around the circle, replacing the “duck” with the “drip.” Instead of yelling “goose,” he’ll yell “drop” and pop the water balloon over someone’s head before running around the circle back into the empty spot. Water wiffle ball: Play this alongside the beach, at a pond, lake or ocean. The rules are the same as regular wiffle ball, except that nearly the entire field is in the water. (Home plate is in the sand, first, second and third are in the water. For older kids and adults who can swim.) Slip and slide: Not really a game, more a fun idea kids love. Add some water and dish soap to a Slip’N Slide game or giant tarp (which Webster says you can get for less than $10). Shoe relay: Divide everybody into two teams, and have everyone take their shoes off. Have someone not participating throw the shoes to the other side of the field/yard. One at a time, one person from each team sprints to the other side, finds his shoes, puts them on and ties
them, and then runs back to tag the next teammate. First team with all shoes on wins. (Webster says he usually will hide a shoe or two in an unexpected place for a laugh.) Sponge relay: Each team has a small empty bucket and large sponge near them at the start line. At the other end of the field/yard, there will be two larger buckets filled with water. Participants run to one end, dip the sponge into the bucket, run back, and squeeze the sponge out and pass on to the next runner. First team to fill the bucket with water wins. (For extra incentive, promise the winning team members they’ll get to dump water on the person of their choice.)
Ultimate frisbee: Like football and frisbee combined — you play on a field with two end zones and split everyone into two teams. Whenever you’re holding the frisbee, you can’t take more than three steps before passing. If you drop the frisbee or the frisbee gets intercepted, it goes to the other team. Passing the frisbee into your end zone gets your team a point. Good for both kids and adults looking for a more athletic game, Webster said. KanJam: This is a trademark game you can buy at the store, but you could easily rig one up with a couple trash barrels. (Before it was patented, the game was called Garbage Can Frisbee.) You earn points by throwing discs at or into barrels.

Before you light the fuse on that mortar cake or roman candle, there are a few things you should know about New Hampshire’s laws and how to safely set off your own fireworks. When it comes to enjoying fireworks this Fourth of July, there are a couple ways to go about it. For one, you can attend an official fireworks show put on by your local or nearby community. And Chris Wyman, an investigator with the state Fire Marshal's Office, says that's probably ideal. “The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to always enjoy a professional display,” Wyman said. But this is New Hampshire, the state that takes its freedoms at its own risk. So, if you want to buy consumer fireworks and launch them in your backyard, that may be an option depending on where you live.
Where you can launch
“In New Hampshire, consumer fireworks are actually known as permissible fireworks by the state law,” Wyman said. “Anyone who is the age of 21 or older can purchase, possess and use permissible fireworks here in New Hampshire, provided ... they're on their own property or have written permission from a landowner and they're using them in a community that has not restricted their possession or their use or even the sale by local ordinance.” Assuming you are of legal age, the first thing you need to know is if your town
or city has banned the use of fireworks. Just because it's legal in the state doesn't mean local governments can't have their say. “Each city and town can adopt their own local requirements,” Wyman said. If you are already in the market to buy some fireworks, you can drop in to a store that sells them. Wyman says current law requires stores to post a list of communities that restrict fireworks. Or, you can go online to the New Hampshire Department of Safety's Division of Fire Safety website (nh.gov/safety/divisions/ firesafety/special-operations/fireworks), where the same community list can be found. It's best not to make any assumptions, since you can live just a few short miles from a fireworks store and still not be allowed to fire them off at home. To give a few examples, the town of Derry is full of fireworks stores and has no restrictions on lighting up the sky, but neighboring Londonderry requires a permit for home use. Manchester and Bedford also require a permit while neighboring Goffstown bans it outright and Hooksett has no restrictions. Nashua and Salem don't allow consumer fireworks use at all, but nearby towns Windham and Pelham have zero restrictions. Concord has no restrictions. Merrimack requires a permit after 11 p.m.
A number of familiar consumer fireworks have been outlawed by state and federal law. “What you [may] know as M80s or

cherry bombs, those have actually been federally banned since the ’60s by the federal Child Safety Act,” Wyman said. “There are a few items which are deemed non-permissible fireworks or what would be considered illegal in New Hampshire,” Wyman said. “Those would be any type of firecracker, any type of bottle rocket or missile or any device that produces solely smoke as an effect, like a smoke bomb.” The reason smoke bombs were banned, according to Wyman, is that they can be used in a building or in a crowd to incite a panic or trigger a public safety response. “If you look at the top injury producers, it's firecrackers, bottle rockets and reloadable mortars,” Wyman said.

said. “So, they're actually taking a consumer, and putting them into a position which [usually] is left to a licensed and trained pyrotechnician. … You can be severely injured if not even killed.” The mortars became legal in 2011 when the state law changed, eliminating a prohibition on several thousand fireworks and stripping a review committee from the power of restricting certain devices. “What we had was a permissible fireworks review board that reviewed consumer fireworks to deem, ‘Are they backyard fireworks appropriate for New Hampshire?’” Wyman said. Legislation has since been proposed to reinstate the ban on reloadable mortars, aerial spinners and parachutes, as well as restore the review board — which was downgraded to CHRIS WYMAN an advisory board — to its original powers to ban items. But those attempts failed to pass the legislature. The risks inherent in both reloadable mortars and spinners were made clear in 2012, when 13 people were injured when a large number of fireworks accidentally ignited on the back deck of a Pelham home. “You had 344 reloadable mortar shells that were stacked up on a deck. Basically, an aerial spinner-type device landed on the pile, which simultaneously ignited all the fireworks,” said Wyman. This happened, according to Wyman, who later investigated the scene, despite the fact that all the state laws, local ordinances and even safety instructions on the product's package were followed.
If you look at the top injury producers, it’s firecrackers, bottle rockets and reloadable mortars.
For a while, reloadable mortars were banned, but Wyman said that changed in recent years. Reloadable mortars are sold as a set of loose mortar shells and a single launch tube. The user loads the tube with the shell and lights the wick. Assuming everything goes as planned, the wick lights a lift charge that shoots the shell high up into the air, then it explodes with a colorful spray of light. The user repeats this until they run out of shells. The same thing that makes them popular among consumers — their unique interactivity — is also what makes them increasingly worrisome for public safety officials like Wyman. “Reloadable mortar shells require the consumer to be part of the final assembly, unlike any other firework,” Wyman

ARTS Messy, uncommon, contemporary Ann Trainor Domingue on “Sunstrokes” By Kelly Sennott
To constantly reinvent yourself as an artist is difficult, particularly when you’ve been painting for years. And yet, Ann Trainor Domingue has found a way to do it in her little post-andbeam art studio, complete with original barn doors, painted pink, located alongside her Goffstown home. The 1900s building is filled with artwork, completed and half-finished, and is oozing with friendliness and playfulness. About 20 of those pieces will hang in a show, “Sunstrokes,” at the Sullivan Framing & Fine Art Gallery in Bedford through the month of July. They depict gardens, flowers and a cast of characters partly inspired by the florists at Apotheca right down the street. People who know Domingue may recognize her trademark style, but this collection is a noticeable drift from her norm, too. “What I love about Ann,” gallery owner Amy Sullivan said, “is that her body of work is always changing. … It’s hard as an artist to keep changing and recreating, and to not be stagnant, but I definitely feel she excels at that.” To paint some of Domingue’s favorite things — flowers, boats, coastlines See “Sunstrokes” by Ann Trainor Domingue Where: Sullivan Framing and Fine Art Gallery, 15 N. Amherst Road, Bedford, sullivanframing.com When: On view July 7 through July 31; reception Thurs., July 16, 6-9 p.m. Contact: anntrainordomingue.com

and traditional New England architecture — without being trite can be challenging because it’s done so often here, but she’s had the right kinds of inspirations in 2014 and 2015, starting with a fellowship and residency in Provincetown, Mass., last September. “It was just a fantastic experience,” Domingue said. “But how can it not be, when you’re plunked down in an art-centric and eccentric place such as Provincetown? I got to stay there and get a much deeper understanding and feel of the place.” Her stay there invoked a bravery to be bolder in her paintings, which she describes as “messy, uncommon, friendly, contemporary art.” In “Free to Be,” for instance, she literally pasted a whimsical blue fabric on the canvas, which became a long-sleeved blue dress. “Happiness” was painted entirely on top of a swatch of fabric, but you
can see hints of what’s underneath where Domingue scratched the paint away. (She had to complete it in five minutes before the paint dried.) Another piece (not in this show) literally has a beach stone tacked on, and surrounding it is a whirl of metallic blue and green paint and fabric. Even though she describes her art as “messy,” there’s a lot of careful planning involved. On her work desk is a collection of sketchbooks, where she considers color and composition for everything she does. Part of this interest in planning likely comes from 30-plus years working as an art director in advertising agencies. She knows the steps to take to create a design that will capture interest, both hers and the viewer’s, in a way that hasn’t been done a million times. “I’m really looking for some sense of order or surprise,” Domingue said. “The

organization of space and shape is critical in any kind of art endeavor.” She likes simple, bold shapes — even when she paints people, she tries to draw them down to their simplest forms, which has its own challenges. “It’s not easy to pick and choose [what to include] from a complex thing such as a figure. Not to mention a clothed figure,” she added. Fabric is a new element to the work. She got the swatches from her sister-inlaw, a fiber artist and clothing designer, and they’re stored away in her desk drawer, containing polka dots, flowers and designs of all colors. Using the fiber started as a means to sign her name in the lower right hand corner of her paintings — she’d glue the fabric over the painting, as the texture of the acrylic was sometimes hard to write over — but soon it became splashed over the rest of her art too. “There was something just so cool about all these little bags with all these little swatches, so I started tearing them into strips and putting them into paintings. It’s just become something I’m really interested in working with,” Domingue said. Domingue has been a full-time artist for years. She teaches at the Currier Art Center, and she’s been represented by numerous galleries across New Hampshire and New England, but she spends most of her time creating in her art studio, music playing, pencil or paintbrush moving to bring about something new and inviting. “I will go full-spectrum. I love mixing color. I almost never use a color directly out of a tube. I’m always modifying or layering to try to find some depth,” she said.

• Andy’s Summer Playhouse’s new artistic director: Last week, the organization announced the appointment of Jared Mezzocchi to lead the organization into the future. Dozens of capable candidates were screened and interviewed, according to the release, but Mezzocchi was also chosen because of his ties to the youth theater company — he was also once an Andy’s kid, and he’s written and produced many of its summer shows the past several years. He received his MFA in Performance and Interactive Media Arts at Brooklyn College and is currently on the faculty at the University of Maryland, College Park, where he leads the projection design track in the MFA Design program. He has directed and/ or designed at theaters across the U.S. and Europe. His official start date is Aug. 1, but he’s already in Wilton directing his original production, The Kid of Billy the Kid, which opens July 18.

A deal was announced that the Belknap Economic Development Council will purchase the historic Colonial Theatre in Laconia for $1.4 million, according to NHPR; the city will loan the group the money to buy the theater and assist in raising the $15 million more needed for renovations. The theater, which opened in 1914 but has been shut down since 2001, still has the ceiling, stage and other pieces intact but will need a lot of rehabilitation. “The architecture is incredible and it really is a piece of New Hampshire’s history and Laconia’s history, so we really look forward to bringing it back to full use and being a great civic amenity for the city and the region,” said Justin Slattery, executive director of the Belknap Economic Development Council, during the NHPR interview.

“FUNNY” “LARGER THAN LIFE” - Portsmouth Herald
When living history actress Gwendolyn Quezaire-Presutti got a suggestion that she add Harriet Tubman to her list of historical personalities about five years ago, she was reluctant. “I thought the story had been told to death, and I just didn’t want to do it,” she said via phone last week. At that point, she’d been performing as and telling stories of significant African-American females from history for a while. She’d chosen women she identified with or whose stories had been swept under the rug — like Oney Judge, who escaped from George Washington’s executive mansion during his final months in office. (“George Washington held slaves! While they were fighting for their freedom from the English!”) Another was Madam C.J. Walker, who became America’s first female millionaire by creating and selling African-American hair products. But John Horrigan, who was running a history festival in Massachusetts, kept asking, so finally, she said she’d look into it. “I said, ‘OK, let me do some research.’ So I did, and oh my gosh, it blew me away,” Quezaire-Presutti said. “That’s when I learned Harriet had another life after the Underground Railroad.” This other life made the hero less ethereal, more real, in Quezaire-Presutti’s opinion. (“There’s nothing wrong with the Underground Railroad [story], but what they’ve done to it — they’ve made it look mythical,” she said.) During her search, she discovered that, in addition to having served as a spy and conductor, outsmarting slave catchers with disguises and wit, Tubman had a “sharp military mind.” In 1863, she became the first woman to lead an armed assault during the Civil War; it was to rescue 750 slaves on a collection of plantations along the Combahee River, and with 300 soldiers, “she didn’t lose one.” “She was just brilliant. There’s so much information on her, the hardest part was figuring out what to put in and what to leave out,” Quezaire-Presutti said. “She’s been quotSee Gwendolyn Quezaire-Presutti

ed a lot. She couldn’t read or write, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t intelligent, you see.” Tubman had many nicknames. Abolitionist John Brown called her “General Tubman,” and to others she was the “Moses of her people.” She also served as a nurse and, after the war, spent her remaining years tending to family and people in need. “This woman was fearless, and everything she earned, she put back into the individuals,” Quezaire-Presutti said. Quezaire-Presutti gets really into her performances; when she began, she had no theater background, only a passion for history. She sharpened her skills with an adult program at The Hartford Stage in Connecticut, and more than once, she’s attended a playwriting intensive in Indiana. She’s also the current artist-in-residence at numerous historical societies, museums and organizations, including the New Hampshire Humanities Council. Whenever she rehearses or performs, she becomes the characters. She takes on their persona so much that she jokes her husband becomes a widower from the time she slips the costume on. Quezaire-Presutti was very pleased Tubman’s portrait was top choice to grace U.S. currency. “I was excited because finally, she’s getting the recognition she so well deserved,” she said. Giving these ferocious African-American women that recognition is one of the reasons she provides these presentations; lots of audience members have never heard of these women or, like her, didn’t know how large their roles in history really were. “There’s always an underside of the story that needs to surface. This is why I do such characters: to give this integral portrait of a historical event or person,” she said. Plus, “The majority of history was written by men, so women’s history needed to be told.”

A growing sport has women around New Hampshire showing their strength. On Tuesday, July 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings in Concord, Female Arm Wrestlers United will offer a free women’s arm wrestling workshop. “The workshop is to introduce people to the sport and let them see how much fun it can be and the camaraderie that comes from it,” said Deb Banaian, founder of FAU and a World Arm Wrestling League competitor. Participants will hear about basic gameplay, rules and regulations and how to play safely and avoid injury. FAU members will then demonstrate the proper way to stand, position the arms and grip. There won’t be any competitive matches or pressure to play, but there will be an opportunity for people to practice their form and try out what they’ve learned if they choose. “A lot of people are intimidated at first and don’t want to come up and try it,” Banaian said, “but it’s important to know that so many women are good at this. It could be because of the size of their hand, the length of their fingers, their wrists, their grip or just their determination. It’s about more than just strength.” When Banaian started competitively arm wrestling three years ago, she was discouraged to see that male arm wrestling competitions are televised, but female competitions are not, and the prize money for male competitions is significantly higher than it is for women’s. She started Female

Arm Wrestlers United last February with a mission to raise awareness of women’s arm wrestling and to fight for equal opportunities for both male and female arm wrestlers. “I think we’re getting there,” Banaian said. “We’re introducing new people to it, and getting new people with new thoughts. I’m just hoping that it keeps getting more interest and that people will realize strong is sexy.” The FAU works primarily through its active Facebook page, which has nearly 2,500 likes. There, they answer people’s questions about the sport and post news articles, gameplay tips, information about upcoming work-

shops and tournaments, and photos and videos from arm wrestling events around the world. At the tournaments, players are put into classes based on their weights and whether they are right-handed or lefthanded. Opponents stand up at a table with their playing arm’s elbow on a pad, and their other hand gripping a peg on the side of the table. Two referees, one on each side, will make sure the opponents are in the proper form and have their hands clasped correctly before giving the command to begin the match. At the command, the opponents each fight to put the other’s hand on the table. The match can last anywhere from a couple of seconds to a
couple of minutes, though the average is two to four seconds. Training for an arm wrestling competition is not as easy as lifting weights and building arm muscle. The best way to train, Banaian said, is by practicing arm wrestling itself. “Table time is really important,” she said. “People say, ‘I’ve lifted weights for years,’ but in this sport, it’s so different because you’re using tendons and ligaments too. … People are also surprised at how much strategy goes into it. It could take you years to learn the strategy.” Banaian said one of her favorite things about arm wrestling is the camaraderie among the women. The sport attracts people of different ages, professions and goals, from serious athletes to those who are just looking to try something new and make friends. More important than the competition, she said, is encouraging women to empower themselves and embrace their strengths. “The bond I’ve made with the women in the sport is unbelievable,” she said. “We all want to see the other succeed. I’m so happy that I stumbled across this great sport and hope that I can share it with hundreds more women, and together we can level the playing field for women’s arm wrestling.”

Do you have what it takes to escape a locked room? On Thursday, July 9, New Hampshire’s first escape rooms, Granite State Escape, will have its grand opening in Manchester. If you’ve never heard of an escape room, here’s the basic idea: you and your team are locked in a room. You have a limited amount of time to escape by working together to find clues and solve puzzles around the room. After trying escape rooms in other parts of the country, Andrew Provencher and his wife Pamela decided people in New Hampshire could use a new, unique activity. “We felt there was a gap of entertainment things for adults and young adults to do,” Provencher said. “It’s either the movies, the bar or bowling. We wanted to give people another option, where they can use their brain, hang with friends and have an enjoyable experience without having to drive into Boston or something.” Granite State Escape will open with two rooms, each with a different theme. One is a funeral parlor, which is around 14 by 20 feet in size and holds 10 people. The other, a jail cell, is a bit smaller and holds six people. Provencher said they will switch up the rooms with new themes every six months or so, and they plan to unveil a third room around October. You can see what times are available and reserve a room on their website. You can either book the whole room if you have a group, or sign up as an individual and team up with new people. Participants should be at least 15 years old, but a family
with younger kids can participate as long as they book the whole room. Provencher also recommends the escape rooms as a team-building exercise for corporate groups and said several companies have already booked dates for that purpose. Once locked inside the room, the group will have 60 minutes to figure out how to escape. “To give you an example, there will be hidden objects, so you will have to inspect the room thoroughly,” Provencher said. “Then you may find a code or information that will lead you to a key behind a picture, then that key may lead to the next step, so it all folds into each other. There may also be crypto clues with letters and numbers.” Some puzzles will be more challenging than others, but they are all solvable, regardless of whether you are good at puzzles or not. If you’re really stuck, the staff will give you a clue to help you get back on track. The best strategy, and only way to escape within the time limit, Provencher said, is to designate tasks and have each person contribute in a different way. “It’s worth trying out,” he said. “For the price of a movie you can come in with your friends, do something completely different and unique and have a good time.”

Pinching plants is good, and now is the time to do it. Let’s start with fruit trees. Many apple trees are loaded with small fruit now. Often there are five or more fruits together, especially at the tips of branches. If you pick off all but one or two fruits now, they will grow to a nice size. If you leave all the fruit on the tree, each fruit will be smaller. Not only that, you can often see what fruit is already damaged by insects and disease; it is smaller, and discolored. Removing that fruit will help the fruit you leave to be healthier. And eventually, you have to pick all the fruit anyway. It’s easier to do it now than in the fall. Leave the biggest, best looking fruit. To thin fruit now, hold the cluster of small fruits in one hand and pinch them off with the other. Holding the cluster helps to avoid breaking off the fruit spur and all the fruit on it. You can use pruning shears, but it is faster just to pinch (or pull) off the fruit. Don’t throw the fruit on the ground; it may be diseased or harbor insect pests, so you want to get rid of it. Come with plastic buckets and place them strategically around the tree as you work. Work your way up the branch. Leave an apple or two every 8 inches. Michael Phillips, the author of two excellent books on growing organic apples, explains in The Apple Grower: A Guide for the Organic Orchardist that it is good to take all apples on alternating fruit spurs. This promotes a good harvest every year instead of a big harvest every other year, which is common on some varieties of trees. And remember, as you lament pulling off potential pies, that there is a limit to how many apples most of us can use. I recently pinched off a bucket of blossoms from that terrible invasive weed known as goutweed or Bishops’s weed (Aegopodium podagraria). I have come to accept that I will never rid myself of this noxious pest, but I do believe I can limit its spread. It spreads quickly by root, which I limit with a lawnmower and some pulling. Seeds? From a reading of the literature, they do not appear to be a primary means of dispersal. Still, in 15 minutes I can rid myself of the seeds, so I do. When picking the goutweed flower heads, I ended up using my pruners, because with each flower, there is usually a lower, secondary flower cluster that is still developing under the shade of the leaves. I want to get both, so I reach down and snip off the stem lower down. Instead of tossing the flowers in the compost, I put them in the household trash that will go to the incinerator. A fitting demise
for a devilish plant. Annual flowers are coming into bloom now, and pinching off spent flowers is important. I have some nice purple verbena growing in a window box by the front door. I often pause for a few moments and look at it to see if there are spent flowers. There always are, and I pinch them off. This stimulates the plant to set new buds. After all, it wants to make babies — and if an herbivore or a tidy gardener has removed its seeds, it needs to make more, starting with new flowers. Not all annuals need to have their flowers pinched off. Some are called “self-cleaning.” They drop their flowers once they have finished blooming. Impatiens, begonias, and Euphorbias like Diamond Frost are selfcleaning. Those that do need deadheading include annual bachelor buttons, gazanias, geraniums, marigolds, osteospurmums, pansies, pincushion flowers, salvias, snapdragons, sunflowers, verbenas and zinnias. Another June task is to pinch or cut back tall summer- or fall-blooming perennials that you wish would stay shorter or bloom later. But you must do this now, or soon. It is fine to cut back these perennials when they are starting to form buds. The stems that you cut back — I recommend cutting off 4 to 6 inches — will have smaller flowers and often instead of 1 flower per stem, may have multiple blossoms. I have already cut back my Culver’s root (Veronicastrum virginicum) and some of my bee balm (Monarda didyma). Both respond well to it. They bloom at a shorter height. My Culver’s root, if left alone, will often flop over –it can reach 4 to 5 feet in height. I cut back stems in a ring around the perimeter of the big clump, leaving just a few at full height in the middle. The lower stems help support the taller ones, and they bloom at different times. There is a wonderful book by Tracy DiSabato-Aust, The Well-Tended Perennial Garden that nicely explains cutting back and lists those perennials that respond well to it. She recommends cutting back asters, purple cone flower, Joe Pye weed, helenium, phlox, rudbekias and more. So go ahead and pinch something. It’s good, despite what you learned in kindergarten.

I’m hoping you can help me identify the maker and pattern of this pressed glass salad set. I bought the bowl several years ago at an estate sale and then, some years later, came across the plates online. I love the set and would like to add pieces, but I’m having a hard time finding the pattern, an effort that is certainly hindered by the fact that I don’t know what it is! There are no manufacturer marks on any of the pieces. Your insight would be appreciated!
We will be closed July 5th & 6th

Dear Susan, It can be very difficult to identify any glassware old or modern. Most have no markings to tell the manufacturer, and if they do, it’s still tough because it’s sometimes a mark, not a full name. It’s definitely a stippled glass, which is the raised tiny bumps on the back. And it’s considered reverse painted. But there are so many makers and styles out there that it is, as I said, tough to pinpoint. The Indiana Glass Co. did hundreds of different patterns and styles. This is very similar to its work. I don’t know if you are ever going to find the manufacturer or name. But if you are looking to add to your collection, I would do an Internet search for “stippled glass, apple blossom pattern glass, reverse painted dishware.” I don’t think this is an early pattern glass, but more likely a pattern from the 1940s to 1960s. So try to keep refining your search. I have spoken with a couple of my friends, and even though we all said the same thing, rial SPCA.

we have seen items similar to this and no one had a name for it. As far as values on this style of dishes, it should be in the range of $10 for plates and more for serving pieces such as your bowl. The value is not going to matter though, unless you can find more. I will keep searching for you, and if I can come up with the exact name I will get back to you. I hope, at least, this is a start for you to research.

IN/OUT CAR TALK
Snow tires have disadvantages in non-winter months of their cold-weather-oriented rubber compounds and their more-aggressive treads. And they’re noisier. You haven’t noticed that hum yet? Nothing awful is going to happen if you drive all summer on your snow tires. But they’ll wear out faster than if you used them only during winter months — when you really need them. So my advice would be to find a set of good all-season tires, and put those on the wheels you’ve got now. Then store the snow tires in your garage. And in November, buy a set of inexpensive steel wheels that you’re going to beat up and drive through potholes all winter, and put your snow tires on those wheels. Then, next spring, you can just swap the wheels, and you won’t need to mount and balance either set of Edgar’s tires again. Dear Car Talk: I’m a shadetree mechanic and recently bought an OBDII/CAN scanner. I chose the cheapest unit I could find (about $25), and it seems that all it will do is read and/or clear any codes that are set. Since I have the factory service manual for my car, I can look up the codes to see what’s wrong or do a Web search if I need more information. What I’m
wondering is: If I spent more on a fancier unit, what additional features would I get? Can my basic unit read all codes from all systems in my car? I don’t need the unit to tell me what the code means or how to fix it. Thanks! — Larry If you don’t need to know how to fix the car, then what you bought is absolutely good enough. Your unit should be able to read all of the codes and, just as importantly, clear the codes so you can turn off the Check Engine light. If you bought a fancier unit, besides the leather seats and sunroof, you would get some features that we find helpful in the shop. First, it helps you with the diagnosis. If it reads a code on a Subaru for a bad evaporative emissions system, for instance, it might tell you to “check for a rusted filler neck, since that’s the most common cause of leaks in this system.” That’s helpful, but you often can find that same kind of information on the Internet. Or you can do what my brother would have done: Put a match to the filler neck and see if it ignites. As a shadetree mechanic, you have plenty of time to search the Web for answers. But since we’re fixing 20 cars a day, it’s helpful to give our guys immediate information
like that. Plus, every time they do an Internet search at the shop, they end up spending all day at bikinicarwash.com, and none of the cars ever get fixed. The other nice thing our scanners do is allow us to actuate certain components, which also helps in diagnosis. For example, if we’re diagnosing an overheating problem, we can push a button on our scan tool and tell the car’s computer to “energize the cooling fan.” That’s a quick and easy way to find out if the fan, the wiring and the relay are all working. Otherwise, we’d have to let the car run for 10 minutes until it got hot enough to turn on the cooling fan itself, and spend a bunch of time with a test light. These more-sophisticated scanners also can communicate wirelessly with the software in our garage’s computer, and pull up wiring diagrams and stuff like that. But the units we use cost several thousand dollars. And those features are just not worth the money for a shadetree guy working on one car on the occasional weekend. So what you got is perfect. You’ll read the code, and then you run back and forth into the house to look up stuff online. Just bring a rag to wipe the grease off the computer keyboard so your family doesn’t lock you out.

Standing. The one simple trick that can double your productivity*
Dear Car Talk: I just became the proud owner of an adorable Nissan Rogue that my granddaughter has named Edgar. I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Edgar came By Ray Magliozzi with new snow tires, and I really like the way they handle, with all the snow we get. But I would like your opinion on what to do with these tires now. Should I just keep using the snow tires year-round, and when they get worn down, get a good everyday tire? Or should I get summer tires and have them changed every spring and fall? Your opinion would be greatly appreciated. — Leeanita Well, if you really love the way these snow tires handle, Leeanita, you might just consider moving farther north, where you can make good use of them year-round. Have you considered Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada? But if that’s not in the cards, I’d recommend removing the snow tires in the spring and using an all-season tire during the nonwinter months. Snow tires definitely help you get through snow. But they’ve got disadvantages on dry roads: They don’t handle as well, because

FOOD What’s brewing in Concord
Restaurant and future nanobrewery opens in the capital By Allie Ginwala
News from the local food scene
By Allie Ginwala
For Kirk McNeil and Kevin Bloom, choosing a name for their new restaurant and future nanobrewery meant more than just assigning a title — they wanted to make it a part of their patrons’ experience. And Area 23 has certainly given people something to talk about. “There’s a lot of theories about how the name came into existence,” Bloom said, to which McNeil quickly added, “We’re not sure ourselves.” One theory is that they took Area 51, added it to building number 19½, divided it by pi and raised it to the nearest whole prime number. Another is that it was inspired by the 23rd hexagram from the I Ching, which is even painted in black and white on one of the restaurant walls. “It’s the number of Monty Python sketches I could recite off the top of my head,” McNeil said. “It could have been named after an old, famous Manchester speakeasy,” Bloom continued. “Or all of those things could be true.” Clearly enjoying the lore behind the naming process of Area 23, McNeil said what it really boiled down to was picking something unique. “We didn’t want to name it something like “The Smokestack Brewery,” which just says, this place and brewery. … We wanted it to be something that you had to kind of figure out what it meant,” he said. “It’s a little bit chaotic, [but] we have enough faith in our customers. They can figure out what Area 23 means to them.” Tucked into the Smokestack Center on North State Street in Concord, along with a senior living facility, art and dance studio and birth center, Area 23’s solid white door entrance could be easily passed by if you’re not specifically looking for it. But once inside, all thoughts of a potentially average space are pushed aside by the high ceilings, exposed brick wall, colorful flags hanging from the beams and a bar in the center of the room lined with coins from around the world. “We wanted to be the kind of place that people could come and be comfortable,

where they could actually have conversations,” McNeil said. Area 23 has five dart lanes, a pool table and plenty of large tabletops for board and card games. There is one TV, but they have yet to turn on the sound (though they’re planning to turn up the volume for the Grateful Dead Farewell Tour). “We wanted a place where … there was good food but not necessarily an eight-page menu that tries to be all things to all people,” McNeil said. “We are both fans of good beer and good cider, so we wanted just that.” Opening a restaurant and nanobrewery is an idea the two had been toying with for years but finally put into motion last summer, exactly one year before their soft opening on June 5. Bloom has been involved with breweries for many years, owning Manchester Brewing in 2008 and working as a brewery consultant to help build up Blue Lobster Brewing Company, Able Ebenezer Brewing Company, Canterbury AleWorks and others. McNeil’s experience rests in the food industry, which dates back to his first restaurant job at a country club in South Carolina when he was 15 years old. While the restaurant will have its official grand opening on Friday, July 10, Area 23 is still in the federal licensing phase for the nanobrewery, which they hope will be in full swing in the next months. Until they can start brewing their own beer, they’ll have local and regional beers on tap from Moat Mountain, Kelsen and Switchback, as well as cider from Woodchuck Cider and Downeast Cider House and mead from Moonlight Meadery in Londonderry. “We’re going to be brewing our own here so [until then] we want to focus on the other small breweries and cideries … that are also brewing,” McNeil said. Once the licensing process is complete,
they’ll begin brewing using a small, threebarrel system with the intention of frequently rotating the selection. “We’ll get to find out what the community likes,” Bloom said. “There will be some that we probably make more regularly than others.” They won’t be bottling or packaging any beer, however — just serving it over the counter at the restaurant or filling growlers. The menu at Area 23 is eclectic, with calzones, ribs (made with the chef’s beloved rib sauce) and a bowl of bacon, which is exactly what it sounds like — a half pound of bacon in a bowl. The calzones cover a wide array of flavors, such as the Bubba Jong Il with pulled pork and kimchi, the veggie Mexican with refried beans, black beans, cornbread stuffing and cheese, and the steak bomb with steak, bleu cheese, poblano and jalapeno peppers. “What we’re trying to do with most of our flavors is give people something that they’re like, ‘Oh wow, that’s really flavorful,’” McNeil said. Another menu feature is the roast stuffed chicken. It’s served whole in a basket, and the chef chops the chicken in half with a meat cleaver right at the table. “It’s enough for one really hungry person or two people to ... go to town on,” McNeil said. With no other breweries currently in Concord, McNeil and Bloom hope Area 23 will become known as a spot to get good food and freshly brewed beer, but also a place to find a sense of community and have a bit of fun. “I remember playing a lot of board games when I was growing up, and it’s kinda hard to do now because everybody’s so busy and we’ve all got one of these things plugged into our faces,” McNeil said, holding his up his smartphone. “Come here ... have a beer, have some ribs and play a board game.”
Oodles of veggie noodles
Why you might want a vegetable spiralizer
ENOTECA (wine bar)
By Allie Ginwala
One of the trendiest items currently on the shelves at local kitchenware stores is the spiralizer, a device that can turn a zucchini into a plate of noodles. With their fun aesthetic and potential to shift people toward healthier meals, spiralizers have recently become prominent in both professional and home cooking. The Hippo spoke with Bonne Cavanagh and Laura Therrien of Feed the Family about the benefits of and dishes inspired by the spiralizer.

OK thing to eat.”
Dishing it out
Whether you’re spiralizing a zucchini to eat in a salad or serve with a sauce, Cavanagh and Therrien recommend running it through the device raw, then cooking it. “It’s easier to get it through,” Cavanagh said. “[And] if you were going to cook it, you would cook it fast.” Because the end result is finely sliced, cooking a spiralized vegetable doesn’t take much time. Cavanagh said cooking zucchini for about 5 minutes, just long enough to get the water out, is all it takes. Therrien suggests cutting the long noodle strands to make them easier to eat, then doing a quick saute. Both Cavanagh and Therrien said that fun shape has helped them think outside the box for dishes that have a strong health and visual appeal. “It’s all like a flavor kind of thing. … What’s in season? What can we do with it?” Cavanagh said. “And then … if we can make a nice presentation with it on top of the benefits of … getting the veggies in, then why not?” The chefs suggested dishes like ribbon-cut sweet potato fries, a plate full of vegetable “flowers” made from ribbon-cut beets and carrots, Thai veggie noodle soup, a butternut squash noodle with sage garlic butter sauce and a baked apple noodle dessert. As long as the produce is big enough and on the firm side (think zucchini and summer squash, not tomatoes and bananas), the options are endless. “I think really anybody could benefit from it,” Therrien said. “I think it’s good for those that are watching their carbs, those that need to be gluten-free. This is a great alternative to gluten noodles.”

Loc a l Favorit
One way the spiralizer helps in the kitchen is the time it eliminates from the cooking process. “It’s quick,” Therrien said. “And that’s the beauty of it — you can make a dinner really fast.” Plus, a spiralizer can help make vegetables more enticing to kids. “I think it’s so great to be able to present this to your children as a different alternative [to pasta],” Therrien said. “If they’re not eating vegetables on a regular basis, this makes it more fun.” Cavanagh tried a salad of spiralized beets, cucumber and carrots for her family and was pleased to see that they happily ate the colorful dish. “My kids actually ate it because it [looked] cool,” she said. “If I had chopped all those veggies up, they wouldn’t have touched that, but because it was cool-looking it was an
to a whole new place.
Take your cravings
Cavanagh first started using a spiralizer at home about a year ago as a way to eat healthier and eliminate some of the gluten in her diet. She purchased a spiralizer with suction cups that secure it to a countertop while in use and three removable blades that make thin noodles, thick noodles and ribbon cut noodles (you can find spiralizers in different sizes, including handheld options). She started by making a simple zucchini noodle and fresh tomato dish. “It just looked so pretty and was so good,” she said. Inspired by the healthy alternative options and lovely presentation, Cavanagh and Therrien added a zucchini noodle with marinara sauce, tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil to their menu, which has become a frequently requested dish. “[It’s] a healthier version of a noodle for vegetarians,” Cavanagh said. “We even have people that aren’t vegetarian that love this.”

Set sail for lobster and scenic views as the M/S Mount Washington holds its first Lobsterfest cruise of the season on Friday, July 3. “I think anyone coming from other parts outside of New England are always thinking, well, I’m in New England, I’m going to get myself a lobster,” said James Morash, captain, part owner and general manager of the M/S Mount Washington. Following the mantra of “when in Rome, do as the Romans do,” he attributes the popularity of the lobster dinner cruise over the years to its truly New England feel, for both state residents and outside visitors. “I think the fact that it’s got New England fare, they tend to go to that and want that,” he said. The M/S Mount Washington first started doing dinner cruises in the 1970s, Morash said. It used to host a clambake with steamed lobster every Saturday night. Now, there’s roughly one lobster-themed cruise per month from July to October. Sourced from just outside of Boston, Morash said, the lobsters are always brought in the day of the cruise. “[Our supplier] steams them up for us and brings them ready to go, nice, fresh, cooked, delicious,” he said. Aboard the cruise, guests can enjoy one lobster per person plus a buffet of summertime fare, including barbecue chicken, a selection of salads, seasonal vegetables and typically either a potato or pasta dish,
depending on what the chef is feeling inspired by that day. The buffet is ready once people start to board and is served for about an hour into the cruise. “We board an hour before we depart so there’s time to come on, have a cocktail, relax and go through the buffet line,” he said. Once aboard and happily feasting on lobster, guests can spend the three-hour cruise listening and dancing to music from live bands or perusing the two levels and outside decks, taking in the Lake Winnipesaukee scenery. “I think it’s the finest collection of islands and mountains and lake scenery to be found here in New England,” Morash said. “It really is a majestic beautiful place.” He said given the size of the ship, its ability to get close to the islands with the mountains as a backdrop makes for spectacular views. “We’ve had people from all over the world that come through and have taken the cruise,” he said. “[They] can’t believe such a large lake is in such a small state.” Lobsterfest aboard the M/S Mount Washington When: Friday, July 3, from 7 to 10 p.m. Other Lobsterfest cruises happen July 24, Aug. 7, Sept. 5, and Oct. 3 (times vary). Where: 211 Lakeside Ave., Weirs Beach/ Laconia Cost: $54. Advance purchase recommended. Visit: cruisenh.com/Lobsterfest.php

WITH JUSTIN CLAAR
For pizza chef Justin Claar, his first look into the food industry didn’t come by working in a kitchen, but by delivering pizzas. While working for Domino’s in Nashua, he decided to try his hand at making a pizza when he no longer had a car and needed to find another way to make money. After a couple of not-so-great first tries, something “clicked” and Claar realized his skill at the art of pizza making. He honed his technique overseeing the pizza operation at Loon Mountain and has been delighting customers at the Pasta Loft Restaurant (241 Union Square, Milford, 672-2270, pastaloft.com) with his tasty creations for almost a year and a half.

Let us remember … that it is lettuce season here in New Hampshire! You might not be as excited as I am about this, so let me see if I can get you psyched. Lettuce is the perfect crop for New Hampshire. It’s hearty, loves cool, moist climates and, relative to other vegetables in this area, has a long growing season. If you’re not growing your own, be sure to pick some up at a farmers market as soon as possible. Growing lettuce is simple. This year, I planted a variety of plant starts and seeds in my garden so I would have lettuce available for as long as possible. For the last two weeks, I’ve been enjoying some red leaf and bibb lettuce that I planted from starts. They make excellent sandwich accessories, but I prefer them in a salad. Plus, with as much as I’ve got growing, I can stand to eat a lot of lettuce each day. Lettuce is wonderfully healthy. I’m particularly struck by how much vitamin A is in it: up to 50 percent of your daily requirements, depending on the variety. Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin and eyes. If you’re interested in growing your

own lettuce, might I suggest a good mesclun mix? Fill a wide and low pot with soil. Rake the top down about ½ inch and sprinkle mesclun seeds. Cover with soil and gently water. As sprouts grow, pull some out (thin) so that the leaves have about at least ½ inch to an inch between them. Once the leaves get to be about 4 inches tall, trim them (leaving an inch) with scissors and eat! You should get two, maybe three, regrowths. Lettuce needs lots of sun and daily watering.

France and Italy were once thought of as the only “major players” when it came to wine, followed by California here in the United States, but the landscape has changed over the years. There are several reasons for this: consumer tastes and demand, climate change and other emerging wine regions like Chile, Argentina, Oregon and Washington. The big two may always hold the top slots in terms of production, but other winemakers are making a name for themselves in the market. A younger generation of wine drinkers is influencing the wine industry and causing winemakers to meet their demands. A Fox Business report found that “Generation Y” (the age bracket generally identified as people born between 1982 and 2004) typically picked wine based on its story, how they found it and where it comes from. Millennials of legal drinking age made up approximately 25 percent of the United States’ wine volume sales in 2012. Here is a snapshot of some of the world’s notable wine regions, their claims to fame and how they got there.
France is usually at the top of any top producer list (competing only with Italy for the top spot) because wine history is so deeply ingrained in the culture. This is no surprise since so many grapes have French names (pinot noir, sauvignon blanc, Bordeaux). About 75 percent of France’s wines are produced in the Loire Valley where the moderate climate and fertile soil create the perfect environment for growing grapes. Sauvignon blanc is one of the most commonly produced wines, but there are also several notable fruity reds including cabernet Franc and pinot noir.

Italy, which also has a rich wine history, is known first and foremost for its Super Tuscan reds and produces, I think, some of the best wine in the world. One of its most famous wines is Chianti, made from Sangiovese grapes. But one of the things I find that is most special about Italy is its variety of wine-producing regions, from the northern regions of Piedmont and Friuli along the Swiss and Austrian borders to the coastal climates of Sardinia and Sicily. The wines produced in each match the cuisine and help tell the region’s story. For example, a wine from Sardinia pairs perfectly with seafood and may have an almost salty minerality from the grapes being grown in the ocean air. I have grown to adore Italian wines and the
reds in particular. Whenever you’re at a large wine tasting, go for the big Italian reds. Think Barolo, Barbaresco and Nebbiolo.
Chile may seem small, but what it lacks in size, it is making up for in wine production. This country has been making a name for itself in recent decades by improving its offerings and selection while catering to what is popular in the market. The climate is ideal for growing grapes, thanks to the country’s location between the Pacific Ocean and Argentina. The most common grapes here are carmenere, merlot and my favorite, pinot noir.
Portugal is known for its port, a sweet fortified wine, but the country offers much more than that. Notable wine regions include the Algarve, Porto/Douro and Madeira. Much like Italy, the climate and terrior dictate the characteristics of the grapes, which are carried over into the wine. In addition to port I also like Vinho Verde, a nice light white wine that is often effervescent. It is meant to be drunk young and is perfect for brunch, a special occasion or just for summer sipping. It can be somewhat hard to find in stores, but if you see one, I recommend picking up a bottle.
South Africa isn’t as well known as the big wine-producing regions, but it holds its own, ranked as the seventh largest producer in the world according to reports. Here, white wines like chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc are commonly produced. These grapes grow very well in this climate, which is similar to the Mediterranean with plenty of dry, hot sunny days. Other grapes flourish here too, including shiraz, merlot and pinotage.

Led by frontman/guitarist Matt Pike, this Oakland speed-doom threesome has been one of a very rare set of bands from this generation of stoners to worry over its riffage to the point that one feels compelled to hear what comes next. Pike has stuck with the same Marshall settings since day one, which some would view as a positive, but let’s be real: a couple of ticks up or down on the fuzz or bass settings was all that was needed to make Master of Reality so vastly different from Sabotage, et al — without the obvious Lemmy-like ransacking of Pike’s voice that’s been manifested over time, this album would sound a bit too much like this band’s Blessed Black Wings LP from (my God) 10 years ago. That being said (and not that I’d expect any modern metal band to deviate from genre profitability), there are some pretty athletic riffs going on here. Their only New England appearance on this tour will take place Aug. 17 at the Royale in Boston. B — Eric W. Saeger

Wonderfully brash, 1980s-tinted post-chill-wave on the second fulllength from this former jazz singer, a concoction that sounds like Florence Welch imbued with Chrissie Hynde’s ennui fronting Joy Division. Too many newer artists have gotten away with mistaking unappealing grooves for a hip aesthetic, and it’s always a pleasure to hear polar deviations like this, even if this stuff does seem a little hastily written — or half-written, I should say, with no room for boring segues, or, on the other hand, much in the way of multiple patterns for its patchworks, which leaves few exit strategies for the beats. Not that that means the songs don’t build or morph, though, nor that the closeouts aren’t worth sticking around for. “Nothing Else to Do” enters as a Wire-like mellow-down, eventually gaining combo-jazz horns and drunken flamenco guitar bashings to accentuate the theme of falling in love out of bored desperation. Unique, very good stuff here. B — Eric W. Saeger

• Hey guys, remember the other week when I told you that the music business’s weekly CD release day of the week was moving from Tuesdays to Fridays? No? You spilled your jelly doughnut mess on this column that day and didn’t figure you were missing anything anyway, you say? Well, neener, you did miss that announcement, and now you’re probably wondering why your music-barfing Tamagotchi is basically empty. I say “basically,” because there was, of course, one band that didn’t bother to read the memo, so their album will be out next Tuesday instead of Friday, as of this writing. I’ll give you one guess. Yep, it’s a metal band! Between the Buried and Me will release its new album Coma Ecliptic on Tuesday. This ingenious work of music finds our heroes insinuating a subtle departure from their usual delectable symphonics, it’ll be totally — oh, forget it, you know what this’ll sound like: “GRAHH, GRAHH, FLONKAFLONKAFLONKA and, furthermore, GrrrAAAHHH.” (This spot really does write itself sometimes, I have to admit.) • Sacramento beat-builder Lee Bannon did read the memo, so he will show up on Friday with Pattern of Excel, his second album. Just recently, he changed his name to “¬ b,” which he probably hopes will crash the servers of a few rock magazines so that they will automatically send him money. Why not, I’d try it, and besides, everyone will forget all about this name change in a couple of days anyway. The first single from this album has a stylized title too, specifically “disneµ girls” (see what he did there?), so I decided to listen to the other single, “Artificial Stasis,” an amniotic, cavitating example of sleepy neo-techno that made me bored. • Victoria Hesketh, a.k.a. Little Boots, is the hot blonde who was in the grungy nu-rave band Dead Disco from England. After they moved to L.A., the other girls in Dead Disco started thinking she was an insufferable putz, because she started writing putzy pop garbage, and so here she is, forcing me to talk about her new album, Working Girl. Hot diggety, let’s you and I hop over to someplace that might have her single, “Better in the Morning,” so we can listen to it and weep in each other’s arms over the rapid decline of art. Oh gawd, this monstrosity revolves around the “ring around the rosie” melody that’s been the hallmark of pop hacks since 1957. Then some dated snap-bling that would make Beyonce barf. • Were any of you lager-blapping kids around when Veruca Salt was trying to destroy the riot grrl movement, through horrible grunge-rock? Well, you didn’t miss anything, I promise. But if you really want some bad music, they are returning with a new album called Ghost Notes. Leadoff single, “The Gospel According To Saint Me,” sounds like Sheryl Crow trying to sound like Garbage. It is awful and boring. I have nothing further to say on this matter. — Eric W. Saeger

Sy Montgomery talks about her latest work By Kelly Sennott
In 2011, Sy Montgomery had the chance to write about anything she wanted for nature-focused publication Orion Magazine. She chose octopuses. Montgomery has written about pigs, birds, orangutans and gorillas, but never an invertebrate — a pretty remarkable void when you take into account that 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is ocean, and 90 percent of its habitable species lives there. But of all the sealife she’d ever met, invertebrate or not, she’d never seen anything like the octopus. “They seemed very with it, very cognizant. And I’m not the only one to have made that observation,” Montgomery said via phone last week. “They are just so present — and they’re very soulful. You can feel the intensity with which they are looking at you and thinking about what you’re doing.” That magazine article, “Deep Intellect,” discussed some of the more recent findings about octopus intelligence — the research happening at Middlebury College, their brain activity (130 million neurons located in their arms) and Montgomery’s relationship with an octopus named Athena, whom she met at the New England Aquarium. At their introduction, Montgomery dunked her arm in the tank, and Athena used her hundreds of suckers to get a feel for her. She changed color beneath her touch, to white, the color of a relaxed octopus. “We had an amazing exchange on the first meeting, and I couldn’t wait to go back again,” Montgomery said. When the article was published, it got a lot of attention, and not just among scientists. It was revered for its spiritual writing and its heart, and publishers wanted more. So, Montgomery proposed a book. She spent the next three years getting to know even more octopuses, in the New England Aquarium and under the sea. “I was able to watch one of them tending their eggs, another one growing up. It was a fantastic experience,” she said. “After getting to know them, I became so interested in sea life, I got my scuba certification and got to meet octopuses in the wild, in Mexico and French Polynesia. It was a real odyssey.” She saw an octopus on her very first ocean dive the fall of 2012, an unusual and fantastic experience because, Montgomery said, many people dive their whole lives and never see them. “The reason being, they change color and shape and put themselves down a very tiny
hole. If they don’t want you to see them, you won’t see them,” she said. The experience was awe-inspiring, particularly when she saw things that had never been reported before — for instance, an octopus who appeared to be keeping a crab ranch. Why weren’t the critters running away, she wondered, and why was the octopus doing this? In the book, she shows off their intelligence in other ways: their trickery to escape enclosures and get food, the way they’d jet water and evade caretakers by using the scoop net as a trampoline and the way they could recognize humans as individuals, even when they wore identical clothing. Since its May publication, The Soul of an Octopus has done well; it made the New York Times bestseller list, her first title to do so since her memoir The Good Good Pig, and it’s equally recommended among local booksellers. “[The success] is thrilling, of course; it’s thrilling for any author. It means a lot of people will get a chance to re-think about how they’re thinking about and addressing the rest of animate creation,” she said. “There’s a lot more soul out there than many of us give this universe credit for. I think that if we change the way we think about animals, if we realize they love their lives as we love ours, that might change the way we behave toward animals and the rest of the Earth.” Meet Sy Montgomery Wilton Library: 7 Forest Road, Wilton, Tuesday, July 7, at 7 p.m. Jabberwocky Bookshop: Tannery Shopping Center, 50 Water St., Newbury, Mass., Friday, July 10, at 7 p.m. Visit: symontgomery.com

Battle Lines: A Graphic History of the Civil War, by Jonathan Fetter-Vorm and Ari Kelman (Hill and Wang, 214 pages) Battle Lines is a graphic history of the Civil War that is graphic is both senses of the word. Call it “The Walking Dead” go to war over the right to own zombies. Part history book, part disturbingly gory comic, the book is the creation of a history professor at Penn State University, Ari Kelman, and an author-illustrator, Jonathan Fetter-Vorm, whose previous work includes a graphic history of the first atomic bomb. Theirs is an ambitious project, telling the story of the War Between the States from the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 to post-war reconstruction. It spares no carnage, a dubious attraction at which the authors hint in their choice of an opening quote by Walt Whitman: “Future years will never know the seething hell and the black infernal background of countless minor scenes and interiors … and it is best they should not.” Ignoring that admonition, the authors try to convey the senseless terribleness of the conflict with the aid of Fetter-Vorm’s Marvel-esque illustrations and the rare photographs left from the time. In this, they provide a visual accounting that is lost in lines of print and engage a generation that demands news it can see,
not read. With the Confederate flag in the news because of the church massacre in Charleston, S.C., it’s a timely reminder of what all the fuss is about. “The Civil War was unspeakably bloody. Americans slaughtered each other with such abandon that even now, with a century and a half standing between us and the fighting, it is nearly impossible to make sense of the statistics: somewhere between 620,000 and 850,000 dead, more than 1.5 million wounded,” FetterVorm and Kelman write. The 15 chapters of the book are structured similarly: A “news” story from a period paper giving the explanation of what is happening on the war front, followed by a series of graphic panels illustrating an anecdote from the war: a slave trying to escape, a mosquito infecting troops with malaria, Confederates digging a mass grave for dead Union soldiers. Here, the prose genuflects to the art, and the small type and fake-newspaper presentation make it difficult to read. This is unfortunate, because Kelman’s writing is crisp and informed, and he is as competent a storyteller as his co-author, adept at gleaning the detail that enlivens stories of the dead, as in sentences like this: “Ambrose Burnside, despite the majesty of his side-whiskers, lost the confidence of his men at Fredericksburg.”
The stories he brings to life include the heroism of the Massachusetts 54th Regiment, a squad of African-American soldiers, half of whom were killed in a brave assault on Confederates outside of Charleston; the everlasting effect of the Civil War on the nation’s economics (the income tax created in 1862 gave us the modern-day IRS — thanks, guys — and pensions for soldiers gave rise to the Social Security System); and the scourge of malaria, borne by mosquitoes in swampy camps, estimated to have been responsible for the deaths of some 10,000 troops. According to the American Library Association, the graphic novel is one of the fastest-growing genres in publishing. Read not only by teenagers but also by adults, graphic novels are the subject of reviews, museum exhibits and university courses. (The University of Massachusetts at Amherst is among colleges and universities teaching the graphic novel as a serious literary form.) They are not your father’s comic books. That said, it’s a taste one may never acquire: You either like the format, or you don’t. Those enamoured of print will find the presentation clunky and uninspired, no matter their fascination with the war. Those who see the graphic novel as an inspired amalgamation of art and thought will think it brilliant, a radical new way to present history and enthrall young people in a subject they might otherwise care nothing about. Both will be right. B—Jennifer Graham

Kelly Pickler headlines festival at Redhook By Michael Witthaus
Frequently, a layer of management sits between pop stars and the media; a publicist makes the call, connects the client and monitors for time. Not so with Kellie Pickler; when the phone rings, hers is the only voice on the line. “I don’t need a handler,” she said with a laugh. “I’ve been fending for myself all my life — what’s a few buttons?” The country singer, who headlines the New England Country Music Festival in Portsmouth July 11, is famously unfussy. Take her 2011 marriage to fellow country musician Kyle Jacobs. After making elaborate wedding plans, the two eloped on New Year’s Day — and honeymooned in Iraq. “We hopped on a plane and went to Antigua, and it was right before I was scheduled to do a USO tour,” Pickler said. “So we got hitched and went straight to Baghdad.” Soldiers prepared a suite for the newlyweds. “Not a hotel; it was more like a bunker,” said Pickler with a chuckle. “We had some fun with that.” It was but one of many times the singer has performed for the troops. Last month, her longtime support of the military was New England Country Music Festival When: Saturday, July 11, 2 p.m. (doors at 1 p.m.) Where: Redhook Brewery, 1 Redhook Way, Portsmouth Tickets: $45/advance, $50/door – necountrymusic.com Lineup: Kellie Pickler, Leah Turner, Charles Esten (Nashville), Native Run, Blaire Hanks, Mallett Brothers Band, Ryan Brooks Kelly & Jilly Martin, North of Nashville, Alec MacGillivray Night Life Music, Comedy & Parties • NOVALIMA at 3S Artspace (319 Vaughan St., Portsmouth 766-3330) on Thursday, July 2, 9 p.m. $24 - a live musical force revered worldwide for breaking boundaries and uniting seemingly irreconcilable genres. • ALLI BEAUDRY at Currier Museum of Art (150 Ash St., Manchester 669-6144) on Thursday, July 2, 0:00 p.m. Sample amazing local beers, watch a short film on NH breweries and enjoy live music from area favorite. • DAVID JACOBS-STRAIN at Deb's House Concerts (PO Box 41,
recognized with the Operation Troop Aid Chris Kyle Patriot Award, named after the Navy SEAL and American Sniper subject. Prior to receiving the honor, Pickler sang the national anthem for the crowd at LP Stadium in Nashville. She spent a memorable part of the evening talking with the parents of the award’s namesake. “They are two of the most incredible people that I have met — salt of the earth,” she said of Wayne and Deby Kyle, who were presenters at the ceremony. “We enjoyed hanging out with them after everything was finished. It was a special moment.” Since finishing sixth in Season 5 of American Idol, Pickler has enjoyed a solid run of success. Her first album went gold, and an eponymous follow-up yielded her first Top 10 hit, a co-write with Taylor Swift. Her third album, 100 Proof, charted even higher. In addition to music triumphs, she and partner Derek Hough won Dancing with the Stars in 2013. Pickler just released the pop-flavored

“Feeling Tonight,” and the single is the first song produced by her husband. “It’s crazy that we have not been in the studio together until now,” she said. “We share the same passion. … It’s great to be able to collaborate and work together, then shut off and come home.” Fans will be able to see more of the couple’s chemistry when the reality series I Love Kellie debuts in the fall on CMT. “We just started shooting,” Pickler said. “It will definitely capture whatever we are doing and what we have going on in our everyday life.” The details of Pickler’s challenging childhood are well-known — an absent mother, a father in and out of jail. So it’s both heartening and not exactly a surprise that when asked to name a moment of truth in her rags-to-riches life, it isn’t chart success or a sold-out concert. For Pickler, love is the answer. “It wasn’t necessarily anything in my career or the material world that made me feel significant and treasured; it wasn’t acceptance from other people,” she said. “It was meeting and marrying my best friend and being able to share a life with him. That was the pivotal moment. That was the light.” The two are working together on a follow-up to 2013’s The Woman I Am, with new material trickling out day by day. Moments after the interview began, Pickler paused to kiss Jacobs goodbye. “He’s gonna go and write a song,” she said as she came back on the line. Ideas come from the same sources that have long inspired Pickler. “Just life. I feel like I was born in the wrong generation, because the style of country music that is music to my ears is the older stuff,” she said. “But that just doesn’t work anymore for whatever reason. You have to play the game until you can change it.”

Gregory Reddick, 54, and his employer, SJQ Sightseeing Tours, filed a lawsuit in June against New York City for “harassing” them and hampering their ability to rip off tourists, specifically, interfering with their “right” to sell tickets for $200 or more for trips on the Staten Island Ferry which is actually free to ride. Reddick was wearing an (unauthorized) “Authorized Ticket Agent” jacket when arrested, and according to a New York Post account, believes he operates legally because he misunderstands a technicality in a 2013 court case. Prosecutors, who described the waterfront tourist-exploitation scene as “the wild west,” found Reddick with seven dates of birth, five aliases and six Social Security numbers. • Doctors at a hospital in Dongyang, China, removed 420 kidney stones from a single patient in June (a “Mr. He”). One of the surgeons told reporters that a soyheavy diet of tofu was probably to blame. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the most stones removed from one kidney during surgery (in India in 2009 in a three-hour operation) is (this is not a misprint) 172,155. • U.S. students may be clever, but they apparently badly trail Chinese students in the genius of cheating on exams (and especially on the use of cheat-enabling technology). The government’s newest anti-fraud weapon, employed recently in the city of Luoyang during the crucial university-determining tests, is a sixpropeller drone that can hover above a cavernous exam hall, trying to pinpoint the locations inside in which designated ace test-takers are radio-transmitting correct answers to their clients, whose tiny earbuds are worn deep in ear canals. Cheating students also use beveragebottle cameras, ordinary-appearing eyeglasses that can scan and transmit images, and fingerprint film (to fool fingerprint scanners that otherwise would root out test-taking “ringers”). • France’s daily La Provence reported in May that at least one enterprising drug dealer in Marseilles had begun distributing “loyalty cards” to its best customers, offering a 10-euro discount on future sales after that customer’s card was full (all 10 squares stamped from previous sales). Said one buyer, “I thought I was hallucinating. I thought I was at a pizzeria or something.” The card also expressed thanks for the patronage and reminded the customer of operating hours (11 a.m. to midnight). • Laquanda Newby, 25, was charged with three counts of child abuse on June 7 at the county courthouse in Richmond, Vir-
ginia, after police spotted her car with two children locked inside on a day in which the temperature reached the 90s. Newby had parked at the courthouse that day in order to attend her hearing on charges that on May 26, she had locked her kids in a hot car while she was out on errands.
• “Just one of those spur-of-themoment crazy things,” explained John Paul Jones Jr., in May after he had intentionally driven his pickup truck through his living room in Senoia, Georgia. He told a reporter that he had been on the phone with his wife and gotten angry, and “one thing led to another.” Fortunately, Jones is a contractor, and has been out of work for a while and thus figures he can keep busy fixing his mess. The house “needed some work,” he said, “needed air conditioning.” Jones said the truck fared well, with just a few scratches. • Luis Cruz, 46, sought pre-trial release in Springfield, Massachusetts, in June even though he had been charged with heroin distribution and even though his rap sheet, counting his record in Florida, was 52 pages long. His court-appointed lawyer, Anna Levine, was not deterred, arguing that bail was not necessary to assure that her client would appear for trial because none of the 52 pages, she said, contained an arrest for failure to appear. Said Levine, earnestly, “It’s a 52-page record for showing up.”
with breaking into one of their marked cruisers. She was discovered by an officer after she had locked herself inside and could not figure out how the locks worked. • Dene Temple and Stephen Fidler pleaded guilty and were sentenced in June for burglarizing the Sichuan Garden Chinese restaurant in Brighton, England. Police, called to the restaurant, caught the men attempting to hide inside the walkin freezer. There was “no doubt,” said a supervising officer, that the men would have frozen to death if not for being spotted by police.
A News of the Weird classic (July 2011)
Blow Against the Empire: Bank of America (BA) had the tables turned in June (2011) after the company wrongfully harassed an alleged mortgage scofflaw in Naples, Florida. BA had attempted to foreclose on homeowners Warren and Maureen Nyerges even though the couple had bought their house with cash paid directly to BA. It took BA a year and a half to understand its mistake that is, until the Nyergeses sued and won a judgment for expenses of $2,534, which BA contemptuously ignored. The Nyerges obtained a seizure order, and two sheriff’s deputies, with a moving truck, arrived at the local BA branch on June 3 (2011) to load $2,534 worth of furniture and computers from the bank’s offices and lobby. After an hour on the phone with higherups, the local BA manager wrote a check Least competent criminals • Nashville, Tennessee, police arrested for $2,534. Visit weirduniverse.net.
