Solutions to poverty: Remove barriers

The minimum wage debate really is, or should be, a discussion about how we pull people out of poverty. First and foremost, we need to make sure all kids get a good high school education and leave high school with skills to take higher-paying jobs. Second, we need to make sure people can work, and that means more help with child care. As it is now in New Hampshire there are programs that help but more people need the assistance than get it. More than that, many lose it just as they are climbing out of poverty. These programs need to be extended and made more generous. In Quebec, the government subsidizes child care for all — it ends up costing between $7.30 and $20 per day. And there need to be options for kids with minimum illness (such as a fever) continuing to go to daycare. Currently, state rules require kids with temperatures of more than 101 degrees to be out of daycare for 24 hours. How is that possible for working parents who need that income (and the daycare doesn’t give a refund for those missed days)? Third, we need to be helping job seekers and low-skilled workers get better skills. This might be as simple as helping workers learn more practical math skills. It should be free. Fourth, we need to offer more companies tax credits for training workers. This lowers the cost of training and makes it possible for smaller companies to train people. Existing programs need to be better publicized. Fifth, we need to help people deal with substance abuse and mental illness. This is about getting those people into the workforce by helping them deal with personal issues that can easily derail the ability to work. Sixth, we need to help people get cars. Public transportation isn’t really available in New Hampshire, and to work, people need reliable cars. It could be as simple as a micro-loan program that helps with auto loans. Seventh, we need to give people access to small loans at reasonable rates. One thing people who aren’t poor tend to overlook is how easy it is for a seemingly small thing — a broken radiator, for example — to throw someone’s life into downward spiral. Getting to work and getting the kids to daycare is one of those things that needs to happen to make rent. Eighth, create better saving programs. As it is now people at the bottom spend every dime and more just to live. There has to be a way to use earned income credits to create rainy day funds that people can tap in cases of emergencies. Ninth, remove the marriage penalty for benefits. As it is now, when people marry they lose benefits. We want strong families. The thread that runs through all these ideas is that people can and want to work. We just need to help remove the barriers.

NEWS & NOTES Drug ring crackdown

Authorities have indicted more than 20 people who were allegedly involved in a major cross-state heroin trafficking operation between Massachusetts and New Hampshire, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Hampshire. Three of those individuals are Manchester residents and one is from Raymond. Most of the rest are residents of Lawrence, Lowell, Haverhill, Methuen and Salem, Mass. The charges were divided between two groups. The first group includes 16 individuals who were charged with participating in a conspiracy that distributed more than one kilogram of heroin. The second group was charged with conspiracy to distribute heroin but not in such a large quantity. Both groups are set to appear in court in December. Two individuals are fugitives. The others were arrested between Oct. 12 and Oct. 25. The charges and arrests were the result of an investigation by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force with the help of multiple local law enforcement agencies.


Candidates for president and their surrogates have ramped up appearances and rallies in the Granite State in the final weeks ahead of the general election. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was set to appear on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign at get-out-the-vote rallies in Plymouth and Hanover on Nov. 1, according to a press release from the Clinton campaign. According to WMUR, Donald Trump appeared in Manchester on Oct. 28, where he told supporters that the system “might not be as rigged” as he thought, referring to news that the FBI was looking into a new thread of evidence connected to Clinton’s email server. His running mate Mike Pence came to the state to rally the weekend that followed, NHPR reported, as did Clinton’s daughter Chelsea Clinton. On Oct. 25, Trump’s son Eric Trump made several stops in the state to energize voters.

PFCs in well

Perfluorochemicals, the same family of chemicals found to be contaminating groundwater around a Saint-Gobain plastics facility in Merrimack and nearby Litchfield, have been found in high concentrations at a new site. According to a press release from the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, PFCs were detected above state standards in wells near the Kingston fire station. Two separate tests revealed 140 parts per trillion of a PFC called perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA, which has been linked to certain forms of cancer. The first test was conducted on Sept. 30, and after detecting the high levels of PFOA, the state directed the town to stop using the water for consumption. The chemical has been used to produce Teflon products as well as fire retardants used against fuel fires.

Reams settlement

An embattled former Rockingham county attorney has won a $30,000 settlement from the state. NHPR reported former County Attorney Jim Ream was investigated by state Attorney General Joseph Foster for allegations of sexual harassment, discrimination and financial abuse, and Foster ordered Reams out of his office as a result. However, a judge later ruled that the AG didn’t have the power to remove Reams. Reams was allowed back to work but he retired shortly after and the state didn’t pursue criminal charges. The settlement papers, first obtained by, indicate $30,000 went to Reams’ lawyers for their work on his defense.

trict will be able to dip into a surplus of nearly the same amount left over from last year’s budget.

DCYF report

An interim report from an independent auditor has identified serious staffing problems in the state’s child protection agency, the Division of Children, Youth and Families. According to a press release by the Department of Health and Human Services, the Center for Support of Families reported DCYF needs to more than double its child protection caseworker staff in order to adequately handle its current caseload. At present, the report stated, only about 20 percent of cases are completed within the agency’s 60-day guideline. To fix that, the report recommended the number of assessment social workers to be 120 positions, but health commissioner Jeffrey Meyers said in a letter attached to the report that he already added 17 positions that bring the staffing levels up to 102. The report also called for a staffing level of 24 assessment supervisors. The Telegraph of Nashua reported Meyers was recently questioned by the Commission to Review Child Abuse Fatalities as to why the agency became so understaffed. Panel members noted DHHS had not asked the legislature for increased staffing in child protective services for the past 10 years.

A mysterious graveyard in Goffstown with only numbers on headstones has been opened up to travelers now that the Goffstown Rail Trail passes by the plot.

Heating budget

The Concord school board approved an increase of nearly half a million dollars to its heating budget in order to prepare for what’s expected to be a steep heating bill this winter. The Concord Monitor reported the board signed off on an additional $490,000, but taxpayers will not be expected to pay as much in property taxes related to education thanks to an over-conservative projection in property value changes. What was expected to be a $105 increase for the owner of a $205,000 home is now going to be $83 higher than last year. Plus, the school dis-

The Executive Council approved $600,000 in contracts for addiction recovery services in the state. The AP reported most of the funds are going to HOPE for New Hampshire Recovery and Navigating Recovery of the Lakes Region. HOPE has more than half a dozen recovery centers set up throughout the state already. Recovery services aim at helping people suffering from substance use disorder after they’ve completed treatment and achieved sobriety to maintain that sobriety by connecting them with peer coaches and directing them to other local support services. The council also approved another contract that would use $260,000 in federal funds to create prevention programs for at-risk youth through local school districts.


A major GOP group has pulled its support of 1st Congressional District Rep. Frank Guinta, who is running for re-election. NHPR reported the Republican National Congressional Committee canceled more than $700,000 worth of TV ads that were slated to air in the last two weeks of Guinta’s campaign. Guinta has been down in the polls and his opponent, Democrat Carol Shea-Porter, has been more successful at raising money. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee pulled ads for Shea-Porter weeks ago. While the DCCC did not confirm this was because of the cash advantage SheaPorter has, a spokesperson did say she is in a “very strong position heading into November.”

Traumatic experiences can take many shapes for children. It can come from animal attacks, automobile crashes, abuse, hospitalization or not getting their basic needs met. On Sept. 18, a 2-year-old girl’s trauma came from witnessing her mother, Mandy McGowen of Salem, pass out in front of her in a Lawrence, Mass., general store. Bystanders called 911 and recorded the toddler crying as she pulled at her unresponsive mother’s arm and tried to prop up her head. McGowen had overdosed on opiates. “All I could see was a child experiencing trauma,” Manchester Police Chief Nick Willard said of watching the video. Research shows the traumatic experience can continue to affect children later in life if they are left untreated, leading to problems in school and at work, and to health problems, including substance abuse. “Children who maybe experienced trauma can have some pretty profound behavioral health needs,” said Erica Ungarelli, the head of the state’s Bureau of Children’s Behavioral Health. The foundational study upon which most child trauma research is based is a study conducted in the mid to late 1990s called the Adverse Childhood Experiences study. Maryann Evers at Child and Family Services said that was the first major long-term study that found a strong correlation between traumatic experiences from ages 0 to 7 and a variety of negative outcomes, including risk factors for leading causes of adult deaths. Research also shows the inverse is true, if adverse exposures are prevented or treated early, and parental relationships are key. “Supporting parent-child interactions to be healthy … is something that is highly correlated with good outcomes for children in general,” Evers said. The ripple effects from trauma appear to be so far reaching that catching it and treating it early could improve the economy and save the state and federal governments money on things like prisons, courts, foster care, residential treatment and special education services. “There’s a potential here for a tremendous impact on all of those budgets,” Evers said. Those on the front lines of addiction and mental health treatment are able to point to countless examples of how the root of the problems began from trauma. Stephanie Bergeron, the CEO of Serenity

Place, a substance use disorder treatment center in Manchester says the public and news media too often focus on the drugs themselves and misunderstand what addiction is. The actual substance use, Bergeron says, is just a symptom. Underlying it are the untreated mental health issues people with substance use disorders suffer from, which can often take root at a young age after they’ve been exposed to things like violence, neglect or sexual abuse. And Evers said children exposed to parents with substance use disorders are more likely to be neglected. “Years ago, they used to think that child abuse was the big thing. And now, people pretty much recognize that neglect is far more devastating than abuse,” Evers said. “And the implications of that on that child’s development are enormous.” A psychological study published last month found opioid addiction in particular blunts the parental instincts of the addict.

What we’re doing

Lorraine Bartlett, the director of the state Division of Children, Youth and Families, said DCYF began looking at how it could become a more trauma-centered children welfare system about four years ago. With the help of the Dartmouth Research Center, DCYF staff were trained on how to screen for PTSD symptoms in children or discern other signs of potential exposure. Today, that screening is used in every open child protective case, certain preliminary assessments and with kids in the juvenile justice system. Bartlett said whenever it’s deemed a child would benefit from treatment, they refer their caregiver to a provider. Some new programs have been making important strides in getting kids access to treatment. One is called Fast Forward.

Ungarelli said it provides quicker access to treatment and goes beyond just those kids in the juvenile or foster system. Fast Forward came out of a $4 million fouryear federal grant that just ran out. Ungarelli said it was spent to help build up the state’s childhood treatment infrastructure through training and freeing up department resources that had previously been siloed in different programs. Another thing that came out of this grant was the creation of a New Hampshire chapter of Youth M.O.V.E. (motivating others through voices of experience), a peer-support service that just launched in a sort of pilot phase. “It’s being implemented but it’s very small right now,” Ungarelli said. Many of these programs are designed to help kids after they’ve begun to exhibit the bad behaviors that trauma-related psychological issues can give rise to, but there is one program that breaks from that pattern. In Manchester this past summer, Willard launched a unique initiative called the Adverse Childhood Experience Response Team. The ACERT team, currently funded by a $150,000 grant from the HNH Foundation, consists of a juvenile detective, the domestic violence child advocate and a social worker from the YWCA. It’s only active eight hours a week during the times when domestic violence calls tend to spike, but when a call comes in where a child is present, the ACERT team arrives to explain how a child’s exposure to things like domestic violence, overdose and even SWAT raids is likely to affect them and refers them to treatment services. As far as Willard’s department can tell, this is the first team of its type in the nation, and he thinks it’s a simple model for other departments to replicate.

But for Willard, getting kids access to trauma treatment early is personal. “I grew up in a violent home with alcoholism,” Willard said. “There were eight of us … Irish Catholic family, and there really wasn’t a system for us. Law enforcement, they weren’t helpful to families back then. They would tell your father to take a walk and tell your mother to stop making him angry and they’d line the eight kids up on a couch and you felt … less human.” So far, the response to the ACERT program has been positive, according to Christina Lachance at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, who works on early childhood and family initiatives. When news of the team first came out, Willard said, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen came to the police department to ask questions and discuss the potential for expanding services like these. Lt. Nicole Ledoux at the MPD said 78 of the 213 families who have been offered help for their children received services, 91 declined help and the rest are pending referrals or seeking help independently. Still, this program is new and small, and most of the kids getting this kind of help are either already in the court system or at risk of entering it. Hundreds of other kids who could benefit from treatment aren’t being reached.

She said it can take four to six weeks before a child gets access to trauma treatment, sometimes longer. Some are referred to family resource centers for interim services before they are able to get a first appointment with a treatment provider. And Evers said a study of the general population showed high demand for trauma intervention. “According to the public health data that we had, we estimated that there’s probably … close to 1,000 people born every year in those counties that could benefit [from intervention services],” Evers said. “The people getting those services are a very small number compared to the numbers of people that could benefit from it.” She said the hard part is connecting the people who need it with the services available. It requires a system that identifies the need early, offers referrals and builds up the capacity to meet the demands. Steps are already being taken to create such a system. On June 6, Gov. Maggie Hassan signed Senate Bill MARYANN EVERS 534 into law. It directed the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Education to work together to build a “comprehensive system of care for children’s behavioral health services.” But change can’t come fast enough, as Willard said hundreds of kids in the state are still not getting the help they need; he sees it all the time in Manchester and not just in abstract reports. “I went to Parker Varney School last year, had lunch with the kids. I just do it on a whim, it’s fun, and I was sitting with a girl [in] sixth grade and she said that she lost both her mother and her father to drug overdoses,” Willard said. “That’s going to have an effect on her life. She can certainly rise above it, but it’s still something that will never leave her.”

The people getting those services are a very small number compared to the numbers of people that could benefit from it.

Evers said there are a few common types of treatment for exposure to adverse experiences, including child parent psychotherapy or trauma-focused cognitive behavioral treatment. Those services exist already in the state, she said. One of the key steps in treatment, according to Bartlett, is getting the kids to let go of their trauma. “It’s kind of like you’re holding a … beach ball under the water and once they can start to let it up and let it up a little bit at a time and then it comes all the way out, they’re able to go through the healing process and potentially not become future aggressors or people that hurt other people. They’re able to manage their feelings and their trauma,” Bartlett said. One roadblock is a shortage of psychiatrists who specialize in children. “Probably the biggest struggle that we have is getting the children into treatment. … Sometimes, there’s lengthy waiting lists for children and their parents to get into and access the therapeutic intervention that they need,” Bartlett said.

HOW TO GET HELP There is no central statewide number for children’s mental health services. But calling the organizations below is a good place to start if you or your child need trauma-related resources. • DCYF: 271-6562 • CFS: 518-4000 • Southern NH Services: 668-8010 • Riverbend Child Services (Concord): 228-0547 • The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester: 668-4111 • Greater Nashua Mental Health: 889-6147

What was your favorite subject in school? I used to like life science. I was curious about things, so I had a lot of enjoyment with learning about plants, animals and people. What did you take away from your own educational experience? I grew up in an island [where] ... the level of poverty was extraordinary. So one of the things I took away was that if you have a strong support from the family and community and support at your school, that you could achieve great things. ... I grew up in a village that didn’t have [much]. My seventh and eighth grade, I did it via radio. So I guess I would say that everything is possible when the child has the support of the adults.

How did it work studying via radio? That was the only option available and we made it work. … The lesson was delivered by radio no different from when a lesson is delivered by the computer. So we would listen to a lecture. You couldn’t ask questions back and forth, and also, every week, you would receive materials to do work. There were, of course, some textbook assignments. What’s something about you that’s not on your resume that you think best defines your approach to leadership? I would say … humility is an important quality in leadership. ... My commitment and my sense of purpose for educational improvement and education systems I think allows me to be more effective. … For example, I want every child here in Manchester to read on grade level by third grade ... [and] to succeed and get the support that they need to be successful in school but also to grow up and become effective citizens and be able to function in a complex society, complex world and complex economy. What’s the biggest lesson you learned from your past experience as superintendent? We have been trying to do educational reform in this country, in particular for urban education, and also we have been trying to WHAT ARE YOU REALLY INTO?

Where did you grow up and go to school? I grew up in the Dominican Republic and I came to the United States when I was almost 17 years old.

close the achievement gap that exists between African-American, Latino and children coming from low socioeconomic backgrounds, versus students that are coming from more affluent families.

And by community, I mean business community, colleges and universities, civic institutions, social services sector. Unless you put a strong agenda that is supported by everyone in the community, it is very difficult to achieve the desired result. ... No institution, certainly not the school district that I used to lead and this one in Manchester, [has] all the necessary resources that I needed to educate every child. The district has the ultimate responsibility for educating our students, but we cannot do it alone.

You have an unenviable task ahead of you, trying to balance the needs of the schools with limited city resources and a tough school board. What do you think will make you successful? The key thing to success is, today, if I can get everybody to come on board and understand that in the 21st century no district or organization can be successful without strong collaboration. I do believe that we can make the Manchester School District the best urban district in the United States if we work together. There’s a lot of great things here. Our children are smart as any group of children in this state, in this nation or in this world. So the challenge is not the children. … You have an enormous group of colleges and universities. That’s an untapped resource. You have thousands of college students that could play a role in raising the literacy rate of our children, particularly adults who are just arriving here, and they are hungry to participate. However, it cannot be done unless we come together.

What ideas do you want to explore in reshaping the district to be better resourced for the future? Education today cannot just be about 180 days. We as a community have to look at what are our children doing during the summer? … Every child here in Manchester could have a high-quality summer program that could be dedicated to make sure that their academic, social, emotional and physical needs are being met. — Ryan Lessard

QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Bookstore closed, owner held at knifepoint

George Mansfield, owner of George’s Books and More in Franklin, closed his store on Halloween after a year in business. According to a story in the Concord Monitor, he’d started the shop with the aim of improving his home city. Mansfield, noticing Franklin’s high homeless population, regularly hung information about local shelters and kitchens. He offered locals small loans and even welcomed people into his home. But these same people took advantage of Mansfield’s kindness, and in September, a man he’d offered a ride to robbed him at knifepoint. The thief, Bill Wheeler, is being held on a $20,000 bail, but it was all too much for Mansfield, 66, who’s now looking for other ways to help his community. QOL Score: -2 Comment: What a horrible thing to happen to a person just trying to help. It’s also a bummer because QOL loves bookstores.


Gone fishin’

According to WMUR, the winter fishing season is underway. New Hampshire Fish and Game has stocked trout to bolster the winter ice fishery, and department hatcheries will also stock post-spawn brook and brown trout in select bodies of water without a closed season before winter. QOL Score: +1 Comment: Looking to pursue open-water trout fishing? The department stocks portions of the Cocheco and Lamprey rivers through mid-November. Berry Brook in Rye is stocked with 2,500 yearling brown trout.

Mumps cases at UNH

Officials have identified three cases of mumps at the University of New Hampshire campus in Durham, according to a press release from the state Department of Health and Human Services. The disease can spread easily between college students, and symptoms are usually mild and last a few weeks, though officials warned it could cause some serious health complications in some. Residents, especially those with links to the university, were advised to take necessary precautions, including giving school-age kids two doses of the measles-mumpsrubella vaccine. UNH policy requires students have the MMR vaccine as a condition of enrollment. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Mumps is a viral infection of the salivary glands. Symptoms include swelling cheeks, fever and muscle aches.

CCSNH scammed

Someone allegedly scammed the Community College System of New Hampshire for $130,000 last month. According to a press release, the alleged scammer posed as a legitimate construction worker and asked to switch from paper checks to electronic funds transfers for the worker’s regular payments. The community college system believed the documentation to be authentic and complied with the request. Law enforcement is investigating the case and CCSNH hopes to recover the funds. QOL Score: -1 Comment: As far as QOL is concerned, stealing from the state’s community college system is stealing from every taxpayer in the state.

Today I sit here on the eve of the saddest (or is that sadist) presidential election ever seen, featuring the two most dishonest candidates I’ve ever seen. That’s saying something, my friends, since the previous title holders have been the undercard of this election. One is the husband of one candidate, while the other, his main political adversary from the sad ’90s political climate, is a top aide to the other candidate, a guy who got his lunch handed to him by Megyn Kelly in an embarrassing exhibition on Fox last week that reminded me what a despicable hypocrite he is. One candidate has demonstrated he’s a fraud since the first bankruptcy he was involved in during the USFL days and the only New Yorker I hate more than George Steinbrenner — bullies with thin skin looking to win at all costs, whether it’s the AL pennant race or a Twitter fight with Rosie O’Donnell. The other is under FBI investigation seven freaking days before the election for possibly mis-handling classified documents while secretary of state. Incredibly that came back to life as the estranged husband of Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, pathetic ex-congressman Anthony Weiner, was being investigated by the FBI for allegedly trolling a 15-year-old on the internet. And I’m not saying it is or isn’t being done for partisan gain. But in today’s poisonous political environment, voters can’t tell if it is and they need to know. And please don’t Gary Johnson me. His VP candidate conceded the race even before Rex Ryan did on Sunday. But if he ever gets back here on Earth I might consider him out of desperation. So what are we to do on Tuesday? Rather than complain, I’ll instead tell you what I want in a president. Simply: someone who looks at problems as Bill Belichick does. He builds rosters and game plans around a general philosophy. But, because he’s smarter

Honesty. Respect. Professionalism. Courtesy. HIPPO | NOVEMBER 3 - 9, 2016 | PAGE 12

than every politician on the planet, he knows each problem poses separate challenges, thus he devises plans to solve each one, rather than be inextricably tied to philosophy. I’d call him fiscally prudent. He’ll spend big on two or three players deemed vital to team success. The rest is spent for a deeper team to survive inevitable season-killing injuries. That means Tom Brady and now Gronk on offense, which let good players like David Givens, Deion Branch, Danny Woodhead, Shane Vereen and others walk to greener pastures. On defense it went Richard Seymour, Vince Wilfork and now Devin McCourty, who got the big money over Darrelle Revis, which turned out right, didn’t it? Something, by the way, about to be tested again with Dont’a Hightower, Jamie Collins, Malcolm Butler, Jabaal Sheard and Logan Ryan all free agents to be. If they were military contracts, conservatives would vastly exaggerate everything to give the military anything it wants in the name of national security. All while shouting the Dems are big spenders. If it was climate change, the reverse, with Democrats shouting the GOP has no conscience. Or they’d be like Hillary unapologetically saying in the third debate she’ll raise taxes on high earners like it wasn’t their money, but hers to take — a horrifying comment from any politician. All while the country is $19 trillion over its salary cap, something few seem to care about, or able to do anything about, because these idiots are so deep into their destructive partisan climate they can’t work together. Meanwhile because he can’t raise the cap at his whim, Belichick works to solve fiscal issues by trading Chandler Jones. True, the pass rush took a hit, but at 7-1 the record has not. Plus, getting draft picks Malcolm Mitchell and Joe Thuney in return, he has young, cheaper players contributing elsewhere. Then reliable Rob Ninkovich gets extended in a cap-friendly deal. Next come the gang of five, er, four. I’m guessing Butler gets the big money, Hightower franchised, Sheard re-signs

while Collins and Ryan and Collins move on — which stunningly happened ahead of schedule with Monday’s trade to Cleveland less than an hour after I first wrote it. It will hurt, but those are decisions that can’t be put off with D.C.-style continuing resolutions. When it comes to game plans, he solves problems, not giving political double talk like Kelly Ayotte’s ridiculous “I support Donald Trump but don’t endorse him” nonsense. He only looks at what’s best for his team (not his party), producing results every Patriots voter endorses. When facing the stout Buffalo D-line in 2015 they threw 64 passes. Against the Indy marshmallows, Jonas Gray pounds it for 201 rushing yards. It’s two step drops and quick passes to negate Ndamukong Suh vs. Detroit and a two-man D-Line that surrenders 250 rushing yards, so white hot Peyton Manning throw little in a win over Denver. Can you see anyone in Washington, or Concord, approaching problems like this? I can’t. But I don’t think the problem is them so much. Its nitwit voters who hire them, an overwhelmingly lazy group who rely on partisan affiliation to make their choices, rather than investigating who they really are. It leads to a coward like Mitt Romney jumping through hoops to show he’s “severely conservative enough” for Grover Norquist, rather than to having the guts like Trump (his only redeeming quality) telling them to shove it and run on his real story. A guy with a large, close family, a 40-year marriage who made a fortune on his own. Not bad to me. But no, he’s got to be “conservative or liberal enough” and he loses. What stupidity. That’s why I want a president like the imperfect Coach B — because he shows grandstanding, me-first clowns like Ted Cruz, Trump and Chad Ochocinco the door when they don’t work for team goals. I’ll admit, the press conferences won’t be all that cheery. But someone like that would focus on what really matters and get the job done in a way that never happens in Washington today. Email

Great regular football closes The Big Story: As we get ready to start the football playoff season, we go there after significant individual and team achievements in the regular season. Individually, with two TD passes in a 36-19 win over Goffstown, Merrimack QB Jeff Grassini has now tied the state record for TD passes in a single season with 35. On the team side, Bedford finished off an undefeated regular season with a hard-fought 12-6 win in the muck on Friday night vs. Salem. Interestingly, we’ll have re-match city on Saturday as the 2-seed Tomahawks hosts 3-seed G-town in Merrimack at 1 p.m. and the top-seed Bulldogs face 4-seed Salem in Bedford at 4 p.m. Not to mention Nashua North vs. Bishop Guertin after it drowned the Cardinals on Friday 67-36.

Prospect behind goals from Tucker Ormiston, Nate Kelsey, Oliver Simon, Connor Diehl and

minutes remaining in the second OT making Goffstown a 3-2 winner over Milford in their DII soccer playoff matchup. Good News of the Week: It’s that Dave Keefe is back in the game after unanimously being approved as Doc Wheeler’s replacement at Manchester Central. He returns after a few years off, after winning two state titles, going to the finals three other times at Trinity and compiling an astounding 150-30 record over nine seasons.

He took PSU football by storm when he ran for 176 yards on 13 carries and 4 TD’s in his first game, a 53-14 win over Norwich. Before his career was over, he held 10 school records and had broken NFL Hall of Famer Walter Payton’s NCAA records for yards gained (5,291) & touchdowns (79). Oh, and PSU rang up a 37-6 record. All of which took him to the cover of Sports Illustrated as writer Rick Reilly’s choice for the 1985 Heisman Trophy.

Sports Glossary

The 1980s USFL Days: Acronym for the United State Football League, which challenged the NFL by playing in the spring. It had some great players in future NFL Hall of Famers Steve Young, Jim Kelly and Reggie White and spent big on others including Nashua’s own Greg Landry. No fiscal conservative, Donald Trump spent large on Heisman winners Herschel Walker and Doug Flutie. But after going bust in Year 3 it reverted to the Trump playbook of suing if it doesn’t go his way. The suit copied the Al Davis-vs.-NFL antitrust suit for trying to prevent the Raaayderrrs from moving to L.A. Surprisingly Trump and company won. But their Let’s Make The USFL Great Again $1 judgment fell a little short of the $70 million Big Al pocketed in his win. Grover Norquist: Conservative political operative who tells GOP pols what to say, how to vote and probably what to have for breakfast in return for piles of campaign cash. Through his Americans For Tax Reform he’s a noted anti-tax advocate, which probably ain’t a bad idea, but he’s a weasel nonetheless. Anthony Weiner: Noted New York City sexter forced to resign his seat in Congress after getting caught the first time. But “Carlos Danger” rode again to derail his bid for mayor of New York while leading in the polls. The impressive political trifecta was completed last week when an investigation into his latest possible incident put the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton in peril.

ARTS Doors are open

Self-led NH artisan tour returns By Kelly Sennott

This upcoming weekend is one of the best for art lovers in New Hampshire. The League of NH Craftsmen presents the 11th annual Fall NH Open Doors Saturday, Nov. 5, through Sunday, Nov. 6. The statewide self-led tour takes participants to art centers, galleries, studios, farms, retail shops and businesses that have opened their doors and are displaying locally made items, just in time for the holiday shopping season. There will be demonstrations, food samples, raffles, special sales and, most importantly, opportunities to talk with the state’s makers and growers. “For artists, it’s such a great way to network and meet new customers,” said Kate Sussman, operations manager at the League of NH Craftsmen, who also noted a spike in fine artists for 2016. “But it might not be about making a sale. It might be about showing their process and making that personal connection.” Many artists, like James Chase in Manchester, are opening their own personal workshops to visitors. Some go all out, staging them like galleries, while others keep them as they are. Chase’s will look like a mix between a “gallery and a mad scientist’s workshop.” He’ll have a variety of collage and mixed-media work on view, plus four-inch by four-inch pieces accessible for smaller wallets. New Hampshire Open Doors When: Saturday, Nov. 5, and Sunday, Nov. 6, all day Where: Statewide Contact:, where visitors will find participating vendors and maps, or

“But it’s not really about the selling. It’s about sharing that work,” Chase said via phone. “Often times, people only see the end results, the products, which are usually displayed in a store or the vacuum of a gallery. … You don’t get that opportunity to ask questions. An open studio — I view it as a low-pressure opportunity, where you don’t have to buy anything, but you can meet the artist and ask questions.” The trick to making the most of the weekend is to plan routes beforehand, particularly since many New Hampshire artisans live in rural pockets with poor cell reception. The NH Open Doors website features an interactive map listing participants by region, plus recommended itineraries and information about its passport contest. Many New Hampshire communities rally hard behind NH Open Doors. Littleton, for example, has a kick-off event Friday and is

offering promotion cards with discounts to Littleton shops, restaurants and lodging this weekend through Dec. 18, according to a press release. A group of artists in Exeter, East Kingston, North Hampton and Hampton Falls have planned a fine art and sugar itinerary, with stops at studios, galleries and the Willow Creek Sugarhouse, where visitors will be treated with tours and maple and honey product samples. Wild Salamander Art Center co-owner KC Morgan said via phone that the staff has created a map of all NH Open Doors participants within a 10-minute drive of Hollis, complete with local eateries and other New Hampshire attractions. “Most people make a day of it,” Morgan said. The art center has used the opportunity to open its annual show, “Good Things Come in Small Packages,” this weekend, and cel-

She said there will be all kinds of locally made goodies for sale, including pottery, woodwork, stained and fused glass art, handmade stuffed animals and puppets, metalwork and jewelry made from recycled goods. You might even be surprised to learn how many artists are living and working in your neighborhood, said Betsy Craumer, owner of Creative Ventures Gallery in Amherst, which will house a variety of artists demonstrating and showing their work this weekend as well. “It allows artists to talk to the average collector or person interested in art and see what they’re looking for,” Craumer said. “And it allows people who are interested in art to get out and see what’s going on.”

• Turning 100: When Emma Blood French underwrote and built a permanent educational institute in the center of Manchester — the Manchester Institute of Arts and Sciences — her goal was to bring culture to the Queen City. At the time, Manchester was becoming an industrial powerhouse, and the building offered a place for lectures, concerts, exhibitions, film screenings, presentations and affordable classes. The building became part of the New Hampshire Institute of Art in 1997, which today encompasses 10 buildings downtown. The building turns 100 this year, and to celebrate, the school hosts an exhibition, “Emma Blood French Hall 100th Anniversary Exhibition,” on view Nov. 4 through Dec. 17, at the Emma Blood French Gallery, 148 Concord St., Manchester, and at the Roger Williams Gallery, 77 Amherst St., Manchester. It was curated by Betsy Holmes, Gary Samson and Sam Trioli, and within the show, viewers will find historical photos, architectural renderings and a collection of NHIA artifacts, plus a survey of work by NHIA faculty past and present, including James Aponovich, Elizabeth Johansson, Alison Williams, Patrick McCay, Mike Ariel and Marcus Greene.

The Crown of New England Through January 16, 2017

What happens to a community after the nation forgets its tragedy? Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project address this question in The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later, which makes its New Hampshire premiere with a production by the Anselmian Abbey Players Nov. 3 through Nov. 5 at the Dana Center for the Humanities. The play was first performed in 2009 and looks at Laramie, Wyoming, 10 years after the murder of a gay University of Wyoming student, Matthew Shepard. The original play — The Laramie Project, produced in 2000 — drew on hundreds of interviews conducted by the Tectonic Theater Project, with text taken directly from Laramie residents, company members’ journal entries and published news reports. This one does the same. See The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later

Where: Dana Center for the Humanities, Saint Anselm College, 100 Saint Anselm Drive, Manchester When: Thursday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. Talk-back: The Core Council — an organization involving students and faculty allied with or members of the LGBT community — will lead a dialogue with actors and audience members after the opening Nov. 3. Tickets: $14 Contact:, 641-7700, dana@

There are a few reasons Saint Anselm College’s playreading committee chose this production. One was that the students produced The Laramie Project in 2012, which had a “huge impact” on the school community, English professor and Anselmian Abbey Players Director Landis Magnuson said. It was the fourth most-attended fall play in almost 30 years at the college, having sold close to 800 tickets over three nights. A few cast members said during a recent rehearsal they also like that the message is so relatable. It’s a story that transcends time and communities. “We have grown up in an era where there have been a lot of tragedies, from 9/11 to Sandy Hook to Orlando. It’s always in your face for about five minutes — and then it just seems to go away, and everybody moves on with their lives,” said Kelsey Warner, who, along with 11 other actors, will perform in more than 60 different roles this weekend. “One recurring theme is that there’s a constant move to get a hate crime legislation passed. … Matthew’s mother has a line where she says, ‘Ten years have changed. No progress.’ … A lot of times, when something terrible has happened, we say of course we’re going to do something about it. But it’s literally been a decade.” Another recurring theme is the label “hate crime,” thanks to a 20/20 news story reporting Shepard’s murder was driven by drugs. “Even with the Orlando shooting, we heard a lot of people, at least in my hometown, who were talking about it and saying it wasn’t because they were gay — it just happened to be a gay club,” Warner said.

• 100 shows: The Riverbend Youth Company presents its 100th production this weekend — West Side Story — at the Amato Center for the Performing Arts, 56 Mont Vernon St., Milford, with performances Friday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 5, at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 6, at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $12. It features cast members from Milford, Amherst, Greenville, Nashua, Merrimack and Pepperell, Mass., with direction by Jennifer Erdody and Dale Byrd, choreography by Liz Calabria and musical direction by Karina Bertrand. It’s a huge milestone for the theater — Robin LaCroix, director of theater arts, remembers the company’s first-ever production, Les Miserables, School Edition, in February 2006. “We had to go and hand out flyers in the high school parking lot, inviting kids to audition for this new company. Now, 11 years later, we have reached our 100th production, impacting hundreds of kids of all ages,” she said in a press release. Other productions this season include Elf Jr.; Guys and Dolls; You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown and Seussical, the Musical. Visit • Four-town concert tour: You have four chances to catch Symphony NH’s latest concert, The Four Seasons, where attendees can listen to the music of Europe with Symphony NH’s string musicians. Concerts are at the Concord City Auditorium, 2 Prince St., Concord, on Friday, Nov. 4, at 8 p.m.; at the Keefe Center for the Arts, 117 Elm St., Nashua, on Saturday, Nov. 5, at 8 p.m.; at the Peterborough Town House, 1 Grove St., Peterborough, on

Sunday, Nov. 6, at 4 p.m.; and at the Lebanon Opera House, 51 N. Park St., Lebanon, on Sunday, Nov. 13, at 3 p.m. The concert features conductor and violinist Irina Muresanu and contains music by Kreisler, Bach, Bartók, Flynn, Dvořák, Brahms and Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons.” Tickets for all shows are $10 to $49 depending on age and proximity to the stage. Visit symphonynh. org or call 595-9156. • Women in politics: Catherine Stewart has written and directs a very timely play, which will be performed at the West End Studio Theatre, 959 Islington St., Portsmouth, this weekend — She Will Lead: Women in Politics, with showtimes Nov. 4 through Nov. 13, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. The play is an “absurdist adventure” into political history, gender and apathy, exploring prominent political speeches of Victoria Claflin Woodhull (candidate in 1870), Margaret Chase Smith (candidate in 1964) and Shirley Chisholm (candidate in 1972), and looking at woman’s modern-day relationship to the world of politics. Following each performance, audience members can stay for an open discussion with the artistic collaborators. Tickets are $28. Call 431-6644, ext. 5, or email reservations@nhtheatreproject. org, or visit — Kelly Sennott

“People immediately started finding other reasons. And I had that in the back of my mind while reading the show.” But mostly, people in Laramie just want to move on and forget what happened. “I found the script to be very moving. For a lot of communities, when something bad happens, they really do try to sweep it under the rug,” said Jake Miller, who’s very familiar with the repercussions of a town tragedy; the sophomore is from Milford, Conn., and went to school with Maren Sanchez, who was murdered on her prom day in 2014. “Two years later, all the faculty, staff and adult members of my town are just trying to forget about it.” In the Saint Anselm show, actors will wear casual, plain clothes, switching

characters with the addition of a prop or costume piece and a sharp change in voice and mannerisms. Sets are minimal, but the multimedia projections are “over the top,” said Magnuson, with designs by Saint Anselm alum Carey and Matthew Cahoon. Four screens will hang upstage and display more than 100 clips and stills to help tell the story. The true power in the play, said actor and student Garrett Meyer, is when you remember these are words from real people who are talking about real events. “For me personally, one of the biggest messages I want to get across is, not only is it OK to look back at bad events that have happened in a community, but you should, because that’s the only way you can learn and grow together,” Meyer said.

Manchester marathon returns with new route and a 5K By Matt Ingersoll

Test your speed at the Manchester City Marathon, powered by SNHU, which kicks off on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 8:50 a.m. A Boston Marathon qualifier, the event consists of a full marathon, a half marathon, a relay and a 5K walk or run. The 10th annual event is the first to feature Southern New Hampshire University as the sponsor and Millennium Running as the director and official timer — and it returns with a completely revamped route. It has also been selected as a marathon championship in the USA Track & Field New England Grand Prix Series. “We took stock of all of the great things that have been done in the past, and we found things to improve the event in the future,” said John Mortimer, Millennium Running owner. “Most immediately, we refined the course to make it a little more runner-friendly with eliminating some of the extremely challenging hills on the existing course … and also making it more

go any farther east than Mammoth Road. Nearly four dozen members of the Manchester Police and Fire Departments and a team from Catholic Medical Center will be hired to preserve all of the race’s perimeters. All route lengths will depart from an area of Veterans Memorial Park known as “Athlete’s Village.” The 5K portion of the run, which begins about 10 minutes after the others, is also a new feature, Mortimer said. Runners can also register on the morning of the race for the first time, beginning at 7 a.m. Online registrations at slightly lower rates than those on race day close on Friday, Nov. 4, at noon. “With race-day registration and the added benefit of the 5K, these

are some of the expanded fields that we wanted to allow registrants on race day,” he said. Previous marathons have included wellness events throughout the weekend such as the Health & Wellness Expo. Mortimer said this year Millennium Running will present various sponsors for several nights leading up to the day of the race at its retail store. Early bib pick-ups will also be available each day at the store. The themes began on Tuesday, Nov. 1, from 5 to 7 p.m., with “Tasty Tuesday,” a nutrition sampling event. “Every night we’ll have a different theme,” Mortimer said. “We’ll have a massage therapist in house to provide amenities, for instance, and we’ll have Hoka, a major footwear sponsor, give details on footwear products. … That all ends on Saturday, right before the race.” Runners will compete for a combined $8,400 in prize money, with individual amounts broken down by gender and age groups. Half of that overall amount is awarded to the top race-finishing individuals, while the other is awarded to participating teams. Because the race is a qualifier, it has often seen thousands of runners from all across the country, Mortimer said. “The fact that it’s a marathon certainly draws from a larger audience further away,” he said, “and a nice byproduct of [Millennium Running] being involved is that it will help showcase our store and the events we do to that audience, so hopefully they will enjoy their experience and come visit again.”

By Henry Homeyer

Here it is, mid-fall and I’m still harvesting food from my garden. All of it could have been picked earlier, but I love letting vegetables stay in the garden as long as possible and eating them the day they’re picked. And I enjoy making a dish that uses as many of my own ingredients as possible: a harvest stew. For my harvest stew I used potatoes, leeks, carrots, kale, parsley and thyme directly from my garden, and have others including Brussels sprouts, arugula, celeriac and non-heading broccoli. You could get any of these you need from your local food coop, which will have them from local farmers. In my opinion, local food is better by far than food trucked across the country. This stew is really just a variation on my old favorite, leek and potato soup. To make a harvest stew I think you need something bright orange, reminiscent of jack-o’-lanterns. I made it first with winter squash that I steamed in big pieces and then scooped out in balls with a melon baller, but I didn’t find that the flavor worked with the other ingredients. So I next tried it with carrots, which tasted much better. If you have little kids, the carrots can be made into round balls by steaming them and using a melon baller; otherwise chunks are fine. Cut four strips of thick lean bacon lengthwise, and then into pieces half to three quarters of an inch long. Cook them on low heat in a heavy iron pot. Prepare 2 cups of chopped leeks by cutting them lengthwise into quarters, then chopping into half-inch pieces. Brown in the frying bacon. Have at ready 4 cups of potatoes chopped into halfinch cubes and add to the leeks. Brown for a few minutes, then add a quart of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Next add 1 or 2 cups of carrots, either as chunks or balls, as mentioned above. Kale is optional in this stew. It adds a nice green color, and I like the flavor, but not everyone does. If you add kale, you will need to add extra water. Toss in a sprig of fresh thyme and a quarter cup of chopped fresh parsley. I like the flat-leafed kind best, though I grow curly parsley, too. Simmer the stew for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and ready to eat. Add a cup of milk and a dash of nutmeg at the end, but don’t let the stew boil after the milk has been added. To make this recipe I picked all the vegetables the day I made it. Carrots are frost hardy and mine had already been through

a hard frost. In fact, you can leave your carrots in the ground through the winter, digging them as needed. To leave carrots in the ground for winter eating, put a stake at each end of the bed: otherwise you might not find them easily if you get a lot of snow. I cover the bed with a few inches of whole fall leaves, and then a layer of mulch hay or straw. That will keep the soil from freezing solid. There are two problems with storing your carrots this way, however: some carrots need to be picked before they get too big or they will split. The other problem? Rodents. Mice, voles, chipmunks, field rats and some squirrels might gnaw on your carrots if left in the ground. That’s why I like having a spare fridge in the cellar to store vegetables for the winter. I try to grow between 25 and 50 pounds of potatoes each year. My plants produce between 1 and 3 pounds of potatoes each, so I generally plant 25 to 35 plants. This feeds me, allows me to give some away most years, and provides me with organic seed potatoes to start next year’s crop. I’ve tried several techniques for storing my potatoes, often in a spare refrigerator. The trick is to maintain high humidity and a temperature between 33 and 50 degrees. Putting an inch of wet sand in the bottom of a storage bucket works great for that, though you will have to re-moisten the sand after a while. Growing my own food isn’t just about saving money, though I like that. Really it’s about the satisfaction of eating food that’s fresh, that tastes great and that has never been sprayed with chemicals.

Does anyone still collect cast iron doorstops? I have two houses that were given to me by my aunt. I would like to know the value and if I could find them a good home.

Epic WWI Aviation Adventure!

Sheri from Manchester Dear Sheri, Cast iron doorstops are still collectible, though they’re not bringing as much of a value as they used to — probably because they don’t fit into today’s decor and they are easily attainable with the internet. Cottages (cast iron means casted in a mold, like a cottage) such as yours were made by a few companies (from the 1900s to the 1920s); some marked them, some didn’t. Some painted the back a solid color and some did not. You might find a number on the backs as well, which was the run number (building style). They are all basically the same cottage but painted slightly differently, so you could have several with the same run number but they all look different. When you have a few, they really have a great look — if you don’t have a reason to use them as doorstops, just display them. Just remember to do so on a sturdy shelf, as they are heavy. The value on cottage-style doorstops is in the $100 to $200 range (some can even

Need an octane in between what’s offered? Mix your own!

By Ray Magliozzi

Dear Car Talk: I have a 2016 Toyota Avalon. The manual says that I should use 89-octane gasoline. I like to buy gas at my local Costco store, where the price is always lower than at the neighboring gas stations. Unfortunately, my Costco offers only 87- and 93-octane gas. I’m too cheap to buy the premium gas, but I don’t want to hurt my car by using the cheap stuff. So every time I fill up, I buy a halftank of each octane rating, figuring that it will average out to 90 octane. My wife

says it doesn’t work that way. Help me prove her wrong. — Dave That’s exactly how it works, Dave. In fact, gasolines often are blended like that right there at the pump. So the gas station will have a huge, underground tank of 87 and a huge, underground tank of 93, and will mix the octanes in between by blending those two tanks in different proportions, depending on what grade the customer selects. So you can continue to make your own home brew. But before you do that, check with Toyota. When we looked up the fuel requirements for 2016 Avalon, it says that the Avalon requires regular unleaded gasoline. That’s normally 87. So if all your car needs is 87, you’re not only ticking off your wife, but you’re throwing away your time and money, too. Any one of those negative factors might, in itself, be reason enough to change your behavior. But with all of them against you? You might want to reconsider your gas-station bartending and stick with the 87, Dave. And by the way, to reinforce the point, AAA just did a study that concluded what we’ve been saying for decades: that if your car doesn’t require premium gaso-

line, it’s a complete waste of money. You get no benefits from it — no increased power, no better fuel economy, no cleaner engine, no nothing. Buying premium fuel when your car requires only regular is not like paying more for a nicer hotel room; it’s more like paying more for a bigger shoe size. It won’t help you — it’ll just cost you money. Dear Car Talk: I like to put my car in neutral when coming downhill. I think it will save some gasoline, and it gets us down the hill faster. My wife thinks it could damage the transmission or the clutch. Which one of us is right? — Ted It won’t damage the transmission or the clutch. But it sounds like it might damage your marriage, Ted. Since you mention the clutch, I assume you have a manual transmission. If you shift into neutral while going down a hill, you will go faster, and you will save a small amount of gasoline. The downside of going faster is that you can easily go too fast. If you forgo the natural engine braking that you get with the car in gear, you can find your-

self rolling at a very high rate of speed on a long decline. And when you’re going that fast — especially if you’re obsessed with not using the brakes so you can save fuel — you risk losing control of the vehicle or causing an accident if another car changes lanes — not expecting some guy to come plowing by at 88 mph in neutral. And if you do use your brakes on a long decline to control your speed, you can overheat the brakes, causing them to fail. So on long, steep hills, we definitely recommend that you stay in gear and take advantage of the engine braking. And while you will save fuel, the savings is very minor. Modern transmissions run relatively slowly at high speeds, so the difference in engine RPM between high gear and neutral is not very great. In the big scheme of things, you might be saving a fraction of a mile per gallon. And while you’re saving those 14 cents, and white-knuckling it down the grade, your wife is adding up the assets she’s going to seek in the divorce settlement. So do whatever you think is best, Ted.

Crazy for crafts

Beverly does.

Unique gift ideas offered this holiday season By Matt Ingersoll

As the calendar flips to November, there are more than a dozen holiday craft fairs happening the first week alone. Some offer a little something extra. At the Snowman Craft Fair at Bow Mills United Methodist Church on Saturday, Nov. 5, for example, nearly 90 gift baskets with special themes will be auctioned off, in addition to the homemade and handcrafted items that will be for sale. “We normally have dozens of people lining up right outside the door at 8 a.m., even though the fair opens at 9, and we basically take over the entire church,” said Joan Day, one of the Fair’s coordinators. “We put prices on the baskets, but it’s free to come in and

Beverly Williams, 70, has been an AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteer for six years now, ever since she saw an ad (just like this one) asking for volunteers to help low-income older adults file their taxes. Her favorite thing about being a volunteer? “It’s the thanks we get from those we’re helping. It’s such a good feeling.”

everyone gets a free Christmas ornament.” There’s also a cookie walk, and breakfast items will be served from 9 to 10:30 a.m., with lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Other fairs are very traditional. Dozens of crafters will be on hand at this year’s Goffstown Lions Club Craft Fair, happening Saturday, Nov. 5, and Sunday, Nov. 6, at Mountain View Middle School in Goffstown. “There will be everything from maple syrup to crocheted items and knitted items, and all … kinds of other handcrafted stuff,” said MaryAnn McKenna of the Goffstown Lions Club, which coordinates the fair. The cost to attend is $3, with all proceeds going toward the Lions Club, McKenna said. The fair will also feature a silent auction and a lunch hat will include turkey sandwiches, turkey soup, chili and more.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide makes it easier for older, low-income taxpayers to file their tax returns and get the credits and deductions that they’ve earned. Volunteers provide free, in-person assistance in local neighborhoods at more than 5,000 sites across the country and receive training and IRS certification each year.

Get that good feeling.

FOOD Showing some spirit

Distiller’s Showcase returns to Manchester By Angie Sykeny

News from the local food scene

By Angie Sykeny

From peach pecan whiskey to blueberry rum, more than 400 spirits will be featured at one of the largest spirits tasting events on the East Coast. The Distiller’s Showcase of Premium Spirits is happening Thursday, Nov. 10, at the Radisson Hotel Manchester. There will be samples from local distillers and some of the world’s top brands, food from New Hampshire restaurants, special guests and a silent auction. “This is a premium spirits event, meaning it will only have products over a certain price point,” said Mark Roy, spirits marketing and sales specialist for the New Hampshire Liquor Commission, which is hosting the event. “It’s a big opportunity for those companies because most people are hesitant to drop $200 on a bottle of something they don’t know, but [at the showcase] they can try it and see if it’s really worth the price.” The ballroom and armory will be filled with nearly 150 tables of food and spirits, including whiskey, Scotch, tequila, vodka, rum, gin, cordials and liqueurs. The participating vendors are distilleries close to home, such as Djinn Spirits of Nashua and Flag Hill Distillery of Lee, as well as renowned brands from around the world, like Grey Goose, Jack Daniel’s, Patron, Tanqueray and many more. Each can bring

• Creamy limoncello: Fabrizia Spirits (2 Industrial Way, Salem, 458-1745,, a craft manufacturer of all-natural citrus spirits, released its sixth product last week. The new Fabrizia Crema di Limoncello is a creamy version of Fabrizia’s original limoncello, made with freshly zested lemon rinds, pure grain alcohol, house-made simple syrup and a dairy alcohol cream from Wisconsin. “Our customers have been asking for a cream version of our limoncello since the company’s inception, so the launch has been a long time coming,” Fabrizia’s founder, Phil Mastroianni, said in a press release. “Served chilled after a delicious meal, your friends and family are sure to enjoy the smooth, lemon digestif that is finished with just a touch of cream.” Bottles are currently available in all New Hampshire liquor stores. The suggested retail price is $18.99 (750 ml.). • Burgers on Elm: A new burger restaurant is coming to downtown Manchester. According to the Union Leader, BRGR Bar is slated to open inside the Citizens Bank building at 875 Elm St. in May. Citizens Bank will shift to another part of the building while the restaurant will take up around 3,500 square feet of the bank’s current space. Lunch and dinner will be served seven days a week, and burgers run $12 to $15. Another BRGR Bar location is currently open at 34 Portwalk Place in Portsmouth. • Jewish specialties: Temple Adath Yeshurun (152 Prospect St., Manchester, 669-5650, will host its third annual L’Chayim Jewish Food Festival on Sunday, Nov. 6, from noon to 2 p.m. Celebrate Jewish cuisine, culture and community with traditional favorites like beef brisket, matzo ball soup, stuffed cabbage, noodle kugel and more. Admission is free. Food is priced per item. Supply is limited, so arrive early. • Make Turkish food: The Turkish Cultural Center (540 Chestnut St., 2nd floor, Manchester, 621-0620, tccnh. org) is hosting a cooking class series covering Mediterranean cuisine and Turkish cooking styles, open to all. 48

up to four varieties of spirits, and they’re encouraged to offer their samples in both a straight and cocktail form. Roy recommends that guests pace themselves and take advantage of the food samplings and non-alcoholic drinks to make the most out of the tasting. “Don’t try to hit every table,” he said. “Pick and choose what spirits really pique your interest or spirits you’ve never had a chance to try.” People will be able to order spirits onsite at a 10-percent discount through a mobile ordering app developed by the Liquor Commission. Their purchases will be available to pick up at the New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlet locations of their choosing. There will be a dozen notable personalities from the spirits industry at the event, pouring samples and talking with attendees.

chester; Brian Ferguson, owner and distiller of Flag Hill Distillery in Lee, and others. At this year’s showcase auction, guests will have the chance to bid on three bottles of the rare Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23-year straight bourbon from Kentucky, and an all-inclusive trip for two to Scotland to visit some of the most historic Scotch distilleries. “As far as what’s trending right now, there’s a big resurgence of bourbon and whiskey, particularly a lot of high-end bourbon and whiskey,” Roy said, “so the auction is going to be a big draw.” There will also be a raffle for a bottle of the same Pappy Van Winkle’s bourbon and an exclusive Pappy Van Winkle tasting and fine dining experience in New Hampshire. Roy said the showcase will appeal to people with any level of interest in spirits, from casual drinkers to connoisseurs. “There are certainly a lot of people who come and say, ‘I’m not a big spirits drinker, but I want to come and try things that I can’t normally try,’” he said. “It’s very laid back and not an event that anyone should be intimidated by.” Distiller’s Showcase of Premium Spirits Where: Radisson Hotel Manchester, 700 Elm St., Manchester When: Thursday, Nov. 10, 6 to 8:30 p.m. Cost: $60.

Breakthrough barbecue A Nashua downtown restaurant is proving that barbecue isn’t just for festivals, food trucks and counter service lunch joints — it also makes a great dinner and nightlife cuisine. Since last spring, Riverside Barbeque Company has been undergoing renovations for a fresh concept with three times more dining space, a full-service bar and a revised and broadened menu. The process has taken longer than expected — it was initially set to be finished by July or August — but the first of the highly anticipated upgrades including the bar and a new to-go menu launched last week, and the expanded dining space is projected to open no later than the Monday before Thanksgiving. Owner and chief pitmaster Dave Manganello said he originally wanted to debut the revamped restaurant in its completion with a grand reopening but later decided to stagger out the changes for a smoother transition that wouldn’t detract from the new bar. “We’d be open on a Friday night, watching a packed house [at restaurants] across the street and wondering what they’re doing that we aren’t,” he said. “We could have the same beers for cheaper, but when people go out to drink, they go to a bar, not a counter service restaurant with just beer and wine. … So that’s what we want people to know about the most, that we have a full liquor bar now.” The new to-go menu features favorites like pulled pork, sliced brisket and Memphis ribs, as well as some of the most popular specials from the last few years and classic sandwiches with a barbecue twist, like a cheesesteak made with burnt end brisket instead of beefsteak, and a reuben made with smoked brisket instead of corned beef and barbecue Thousand Island dressing instead of Russian. “It gives people another opportunity to try our smoked meats in a vehicle that may be more familiar or enticing,” Manganello said. “Many people think barbecue is just burgers and dogs, and if you already have that preconceived notion and aren’t interested, you aren’t going to [come in the restaurant], so we’d love for people to know that we have more than that.” On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays starting this week, Riverside also offers a late-night menu with food available until 1 a.m. Once the expanded dining space opens, they’ll introduce a dine-in menu with sit-down appetizers and dinner dish-

es and southern-style cuisine like shrimp and grits, seafood boils and fried chicken plates, plus a dessert menu. The revamp is in a “soft opening” phase right now and customer feedback will help determine what food and drinks will become permanent items on the menu. To add to its appeal as a nightlife destination, Riverside is also building a stage for live music that’s projected to be up and running by January, and an outdoor deck with construction starting in the spring. Manganello said that between the updated amenities and the popularity of barbecue cuisine in general, he’s optimistic about the future of the new and improved Riverside. “Barbecue is one of the fastest-growing [food trends] right now, and I can’t think of one type of food that has the same vehement following that barbecue has,” he said. “By this time next year, mark my words, we’re going to be one of the powerhouses of town … but for right now, we begin the task of earning our business and earning that powerhouse position.”

Andy Thibodeau opened Cupcakes 101 (132 Bedford Center Road, Bedford, 488-5962, with her sister-in-law five years ago. They both had backgrounds in accounting and enjoyed cooking and baking as a hobby, so when a commercial space they liked opened up, they decided to take it and start their own business. A cupcake shop seemed like a perfect fit. “If you do too many things, the products start to lose quality,” Thibodeau said, “so I think it’s better to stick to one or two things you’re good at and master it and make it the best it can be.” Cupcakes 101 has five standard cupcake flavors as well as seasonal flavors, specialty cupcakes made to order and a variety of cake pops.

perishables Tasty food from fresh ingredients

Ham and cheese tortellini Recently, my diet has consisted primarily of toddler-friendly foods. I’ll steal a chicken nugget from my daughter’s dinner, a bite of her grilled cheese for lunch and, if I’m lucky, a handful of dry cereal for breakfast. This daily menu isn’t exactly exciting or satisfying, so I’ve been looking for recipes that combine some of my daughter’s favorite foods but with an adult twist — something the entire family can enjoy. Enter ham and cheese tortellini. The gooey combination of cream and cheese, flavored with the smokiness of ham and the sweetness and crunch of peas, was delicious. The meal came together in under 15 minutes, and even my picky husband said the finished product was great. Anything that has cheese in it automatically gets extra points in my book. Grilled cheese ranks among my favorite foods, and macaroni and cheese was a staple growing up. Add ham to either of those and I’m blissful. That’s why this dish was so amazing. A bit of heavy cream, chicken stock, minced onions, cheese, ham and peas are all this dish took. Flavored with only salt and pepper, it was beyond simple and utterHam and Cheese Tortellini Recipe courtesy of Kevin & Amanda 1 tablespoon butter 2 cups diced onion (about 1 whole onion) 12 ounces ham, diced 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth (9 ounces) tortellini (fresh or frozen) Salt and pepper to taste 1 cup baby sweet peas, frozen 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 cup shredded cheese (Swiss, white cheddar, Monterey Jack, pepper jack Melt the butter in a large ovenproof skil-

ly delicious. The base of the dish is tortellini, which is quickly becoming a favorite in my household, especially with the many variations available at the store. I’ve stocked up on some bags of the frozen pasta. It’s great to have on hand when you want to throw together a meal that isn’t your basic spaghetti dish. I used cheese tortellini, but realistically you could use any kind. The recipe called for an oven-proof dish so the cheese could be melted and slightly browned before serving. I opted to just toss the pan’s lid on for a bit and let the steam melt the cheese instead of turning on the oven for only a couple of minutes. And while this dish isn’t entirely guiltfree (what dish with heavy cream is?), some peas help make it seem nutritious enough to serve to my toddler for a meal and add a hint of sweetness. Overall, this dish was very good. It’s a recipe I’ll likely be working into my rotation because of how simple it was to make, perfect for a busy weeknight. — Lauren Mifsud let over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until softened and golden brown; add the ham and continue to cook until lightly browned. Add the chicken broth, tortellini, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Cover, and reduce heat. Simmer for about 12 minutes, or until the tortellini is tender. Stir in the peas and cream. Turn off heat, and then stir in 1/2 cup cheese until combined. Top with remaining cheese, then place under the broiler in the oven until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 3 minutes. (Alternatively, replace lid and let steam melt cheese).

Sample Tasting Every Saturday & Sunday

In early September, I had a chance to spend a few days in Lisbon, Portugal, the country’s capital city. ViniPortugal, the organization that manages Wines of Portugal and promotes Portuguese wines, connected me with some area wineries while I was there. I would need a lot more space to write about everything I was able to do, but one of my favorites was visiting Quinta do Pinto in Alenquer, Lisboa, about an hour north of the city. Meeting the Pinto family and being able to spend the good amount of a day with them is an experience I will probably never forget; by the end, I felt like an adopted member of their family. It was a very hot day when I visited them at their beautiful property, which is set on 200 acres. They were in the middle of harvest, so they let me jump right into the process. I saw the grapes being sorted after being brought in from the vineyard. I had lunch with the family and their crew of dedicated workers. I got to drive father Antonio’s golf cart (which I hear is a pretty rare opportunity) and I had a chance to tour the vineyard and taste grapes with daughter and winemaker Rita. I met and talked with Rita’s children. Finally, I got to try some wines with Ana, daughter and producer and sales manager. As the story goes, Antonio had his eye on the 17th-century “Angel Estate,” as it is also known, for many years before the owners finally sold it. Their location is ideal for growing grapes, with Atlantic Ocean influence, warm days and cooler nights. Today, using the historic vines on the property, they produce white wines that are known for being fresh and fruit-driven. They also produce several red wines. Ana said the clay and limestone soils contribute to their success, along with sustainable production. She said her father is very insistent on this and has said that as long as he is alive, this is the way it will be. They use no chemicals or pesticides, and “at the end it really shows in the wines,” Ana said. I had the chance to try six wines during my time with Ana, and there wasn’t one that I didn’t like. Under their Quinta do Pinto umbrella brand, I tried wines from three of their lines: Lasso wines, which encompass national and regional varieties; Anjo, which are blends of French grapes, and Quinta do Pinto, which are made from a particular variety or are a unique combination of French and Portuguese varieties. Antonio is inspired by French grapes and has his own French

wine collection. He has influenced his daughters, who have not only acquired his talent but also gone on to pursue additional wine education. They produce wines from typical Portuguese varieties like aragonez, arinto and touriga nacional but also incorporate syrah, merlot and others. Quinta do Pinto wines have not made their way to New Hampshire yet but are currently available in New York, Washington, Michigan and hopefully California soon. I wish I had been able to bring some back with me from my trip, but being in transit made that difficult. Even though the Pinto family was very busy, they took time out of their day to share their family, the winemaking process and their wine with me, and I am truly grateful for this experience. No matter where you go or where you are from, wine really brings people together. They told me to let them know when I make my way back, and I hope to take them up on that.

MUSIC, BOOKS, GAMES, COMICS, MOVIES, DVDS, TV AND MORE Negative Gemini, Body Work (100% Electronica Records)

Second album from Lindsey French, who hatted out for Brooklyn after discovering that, as with 99 percent of the rest of the country, her native Richmond, Virginia, wasn’t capable of supporting an electronic scene. Her earliest artistic foray was a rap trio, which she abandoned after discovering beatmaking software, thus on paper she’s not your typical one-hit mini-diva, and furthermore, she’s got a response to all those New York construction workers who yell at her to take her shirt off, namely “Don’t Worry Bout The F--I’m Doing,” a dreamy, Madonna-ized mid-tempo track built on the drum line to Enigma’s “Return to Innocence,” which would never be a bad choice. “You Never Knew” finds fashion-shopping-techno being menaced here and there by subterranean wub-wubs while French lays down extended, breathy lines supported by her studio weapon of choice, a deep, sometimes cheesy reverb. Lots of downright complicated beatmaking here, some epic moments, a top-drawer indie-techno slab. A — Eric W. Saeger Electric Six, Fresh Blood for Tired Vampires (Metropolis Records)

This Detroit six-piece is mostly famous for playing in the same venues as White Stripes during the time they too were coming up. Though not a household name, the E6 are a handy reference for critics when trying to describe semi-joke bands that sound basically like The Tubes did during the 1980s, lots of bad, half-thought references that aren’t what snobs would call “witty,” more sort of madcap, but not going directly for the comedian-musician space of Weird Al and whatnot. Actually, it’d help if these guys threw cream pies at the audience during shows, not that I know or care whether or not they do that, but whatever, this Halloween-themed album is too late for Halloween, which automatically makes it cool. After an intro track stinking of ’80s cheese, it’s off to the salvageable Zappa-esque Daft Punk-gone industrial “Number of the Beast,” the “number” referring to, well, who knows, it’s buried in a bunch of jokes about college math classes. After that, it’s the usual disco-metalfunk that put them on the map, which includes insults aimed at people who eat at White Castle. All I can add is that if you hate Zappa you’ll absolutely detest this. As always. B — Eric W. Saeger

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases

• Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions return for the first time in seven years when they release their third album, Until the Hunter, Nov. 4. Of course, Sandoval has been busy herself, insisting on doing only awesome things, such as collaborating with Massive Attack and Psychic Ills as well as putting out a new Mazzy Star LP in 2013. Her stage shtick is to stand there in almost total darkness and not engage the crowd, thus your weird bug-eyed roommate would probably like her. At this writing it’s two days before the second single gets dropped, but I want to get this off my plate, so let’s mention the first single, “Isn’t it True,” made of soft bolero-ish guitar strummings and Sandoval’s unintelligible but gorgeous kookery. Yes, it’s kooky but not annoying, which makes good business sense. • British grime rapper Wiley can’t make up his mind about releasing his new album, Godfather, but it’s supposed to be out this week, so we’ll see. What’s that? “Who cares,” you say? I don’t, but I admire that this guy, unlike so many others, is having a crisis of conscience over putting out music that he himself has called “pointless.” I like that. Dozens of pointless albums get released every day, and someday I may file a suit against these pointless bands and singers, but this guy even canceled the whole release a few months ago. I’m glad that he changed his mind and the album is indeed coming out, not because of the disposable chop-and-screw synth-blasts and uneventful flow of leadoff single “Can’t Go Wrong,” but because finally an artist has admitted to his/her own pointlessness, if only for one crazy moment. You should buy this album. • Honeyblood is like White Stripes except with two Megs and they’re from Scotland and their music has been kind of boring up till now — actually, scratch that, they’re like a two-girl Yeah Yeah Yeahs but geekier. Babes Never Die, their third LP, will be available imminently, and it includes the title track, which is, well, like a geeky two-girl Yeah Yeah Yeahs again. Well, on the bright side, the next time I punch up Spotify I won’t have to decide whether to listen to this or something else; I’ll simply go with something else. • Speaking of pointlessness, I’m not sure why anyone would listen to Canadian hipster-art-wavers The Darcys, but then again, on the bright side, some people enjoy being tased. Centerfold, their fourth full-length, is on its way to your record store in a few days whether I like it or not, and it will spotlight the single “Coming Up For Air,” which is like — get ready — a cross between Backstreet Boys, Robin Thicke and O.T. Genasis, but put together by someone who loves uninspired music. I’m trying to write a poem about how I feel about this song, but so far all I have is “utterly detestable.” — Eric W. Saeger

SNOB presents New England Indie Fest

20-minute supernatural drama that takes place in 1947 and follows newly minted congressmen and future presidents John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. The two travel to Pennsylvania together and share hamburgers in a diner and bunk beds on a train and must make a fateful decision. Catalfo said it has a “Twilight Zone” kind of flair and was inspired by a historical incident recounted in Kennedy and Nixon: The Rivalry that Shaped Postwar America by Chris Matthews. Split Ticket was shot in six different Seacoast locations and has been making the festival circuit rounds, having screened in places like Orlando, Los Angeles, D.C., Rhode Island, Atlanta, etc. Catalfo always makes sure Concord is on the list. “I really like the atmosphere Jay has put together with SNOB, now the New England Indie Fest,” Catalfo said via phone. “It’s compact, and the filmmakers and audience members really have a chance to interact and have in-depth discussions.”



people kept pitching him festival events or specials — but the movies still come first. Even with the name change, Doherty was happy to see filmmakers reaching out to make sure it was still happening. “We got lots of feedback before we even opened up the deadline. People were seeking us out,” Doherty said. “We received several hundred films again this year, which is great. … Normally, we screen around 70 films, but this year we were a little more selective and chose 45.” All are grassroots indie flicks, the kind you’re not typically going to see at the cinema. Eleven are New Hampshire-based, featuring local filmmakers or a local setting, and a quarter are independent international movies. The other half come from the rest of the country. Doherty said the film scene has encountered an “explosion” of high-quality documentaries, and the 2016 schedule reflects that, strategically put together so festival-goers can choose from fiction or nonfiction at each time slot. He mentioned The Hollywood Shorties, a feature-length documentary directed by Ryan Steven Green about the birth of organized sports in the American dwarf community, and Running the 184, directed by Greg Lassik, about two men who ran the across the state of New Jersey in 2015. Dover filmmaker and attorney Alfred Thomas Catalfo comes back to Concord to show his eighth short film, Split Ticket, a

The annual November film festival at Red River Theatres is getting rebranded. For the past 15 years, it’s been known as the SNOB (Somewhat North of Boston) Film Festival, but starting in 2016, organizers are calling it New England Indie Fest. The change, said Jay Doherty, festival executive director, has to do with the event’s evolution; it’s moved beyond film and into the realms of other indie forms — beer, music, radio, food. “This year, we’re trying to keep both names so people don’t lose us,” Doherty said via phone. “But next year we’ll be the New England Indie Fest. If you look at the geographic center of New England, it’s pretty close to the I-93 split, which is where Concord’s at. … We also thought it was time to broaden our horizons a little bit, and open it up with a different name.” Film screenings will be in Concord Nov. 10 through Nov. 13, but celebrations go beyond screening days — they began Nov. 1 with a craft beer hunt throughout the city (nine bars, 12 days, one raffle prize) — and even beyond Concord. On Nov. 2, the Rockingham Brewery in Derry held a screening of short films paired with beer that complemented their themes. (A creepy flick went with a quad called Silence of the Hams, while a funny one went with a light American wheat, Curly’s Gold.) Rockingham brewers Rob Leleszi and Ali Buinicky also came up with the official festival beer, Final Cut, a chocolate raisin porter — i.e., liquid Raisinets — that features subtle chocolate and raisin tones with a roasty, smooth finish. Attendees can try it out Friday, Nov. 4, during a tasting at Bert’s Better Beers in Hooksett, or at various downtown Concord bars and restaurants until it runs out. SNOB has invited local brewers to create festival beers the past four years, and it’s something people like Buinicky and Leleszi really appreciate. It helps indie film gurus become craft beer drinkers, or vice versa. “It’s promoting the craft beer scene in a whole new way,” Buinicky said via phone. “When you pair these things together, you’re raising awareness about what local people are making.” In Concord on Nov. 5, there’s live music by The Van Burens at Penuche’s Ale House, and on Nov. 6, there’s a screening with Hammer & Saw Films at Area 23. The next two days, the Barley House releases its festival burger, and Dos Amigos Burritos starts selling its festival burrito. The event’s expansion has a lot to do with the Concord community — Doherty said

It’s hard to imagine it now, but Tom Brady was once a yawn of a draft pick, a “borderline” talent little-known outside Michigan, where he went to college. In fact, he wasn’t even the most celebrated Wolverine; he was the backup quarterback for the first two years on the squad, never made All-American and didn’t win the Heisman Trophy. Even when he joined the New England Patriots in 2000, Brady was picked in the sixth round of the draft; he was the 199th player chosen (a number now immortalized in an ad Brady recently made for Under Armour, wearing a jersey with 199 on it). He made so little money in his first year as a Patriot that a richer, benevolent player cut him a deal on a furnished condominium that he shared with other players. Even when Brady elbowed out two more experienced quarterbacks to lead the team, he made $375,000 the first year, a pittance by NFL standards. He was the poorest-paid starting quarterback that year. The next year, however, he signed a contract worth $30 million, and 15 years later he’s generally considered the best quarterback ever. While Brady’s ascent is a reward of his own natural talent, work ethic and a ferocious aversion to losing, it cannot be divorced from the synchronous ascent of his team, and credit for that goes to its coach, Bill Belichick. In Belichick and Brady, Boston sportswriter and radio host Michael Holley proposes to explain how the two men, working together, “revolutionized” football. It’s a subject he knows well, having turned books about the Patriots under Belichick into something of a cottage industry. Holley’s previous titles include Patriot Reign: Bill Belichick, The Coaches, and the Players Who Built a Champion and War Room: The Legacy of Bill Belichick and the Art of Building the Perfect Team. A cynic (or a New York Jets’ fan) might wonder if Holley draws a paycheck from Robert Kraft, as intimate as he seems to be with the players and coaches. He writes with detail that will make eyes glaze over about the intricacies of 16 years of drafts and free agentry, and draws frequently from extensive interviews he has conducted with Patriots players and coaches. In fact, if Patriot Reign had been a TV show or a movie, Belichick and Brady would be the sequel, with Holley updating the saga to include Aaron Hernandez’ arrest and Deflategate. Patriot Reign II would be a more accurate title because Belichick and Brady suggests a book that isn’t delivered. On the book’s cover, there’s a powerful photograph. It shows the two men after

a game, shoulder to shoulder, right hands clutched, with the 6’4’’ Brady looking down on his 5’11’’ coach with what is clearly respect and profound affection. It’s the way a son might look at a father. The title implies that the reader might learn how they got there — to the relationship, not the field. Disappointingly, the men are goalposts that frame the story of the team. Holley’s narrative zigzags from one auxiliary player to another, sharing backstories that are interesting parts of Patriots history but have little to do with what Belichick and Brady promised, which was to analyze a relationship dynamic, like Gary Myers did in Brady vs Manning, The Untold Story of the Rivalry That Transformed the NFL, which came out last year. This is not to say that rabid Patriots fans won’t find the book mesmerizing. They will, in the way that an accountant likes to talk about spreadsheets. And even for more casual fans, it’s an interesting recounting of the early days of Brady’s career, the time when an undervalued quarterback used to stand by awkwardly while fans sought the autographs of his teammates. That story can’t be told often enough, since Brady-haters — and they are legion — tend to ignore any evidence that suggests a sports god can also be a nice guy who worked hard and deserved his success. Belichick, too, has often been demonized as a sort of avuncular Caligula, whose hardnosed approach to winning made many a Patriot conclude that no one had job security but Brady. But, as Holley reminds us, the man has a degree in economics and was called “the smartest guy in football” by one scout. His strategies were not always appreciated by his players until they were carrying the Lombardi trophy home, at which time many of them reconsidered. As former linebacker Tedy Bruschi said of the coach, “I don’t think I’ll be going out to eat with him or anything like that, but from a very early point I understood it … I mean, I’ve got a wife at home; I’ll be good. I don’t need you to love me. If it happens, that’s great.” Readers will learn as much about Bruschi and other former players and coaches as they will about Belichick and Brady from this book. But for most of them, that’s OK. And those who persevere to the end will be rewarded by a genuinely delightful “acknowledgments” that departs from the usual monotony of thank-yous to share an interesting story of how Belichick and Holley first met. The author also introduces readers to his family and the precocious 5-year-old who asks his dad, “What are you writing, the Bible? Are you done yet?” Probably not, because Belichick and Brady aren’t done yet either. C+ — Jennifer Graham

Inferno (PG-13)

Tom Hanks returns as the puzzle-solving, city-hopping symbology professor in Inferno, a lazy-Sunday pickup game Robert Langdon mystery.

I’m not saying they didn’t try with this movie, I just don’t get the sense that they, like, try tried. Robert Langdon (Hanks) wakes up in a hospital with a head wound and a bunch of strange images bouncing around the professorial noggin — are they visions? Memories? Why do they contain so many references to the works of Dante? And, if the last thing Langdon remembers is being in Boston, why does the hospital appear to be in Florence? Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) explains that the head wound appears to be the graze of a bullet and he is missing a couple of days of memory but before they can puzzle out any more, a police officer (Ida Darvish) shows up and starts shooting. Sienna helps the still woozy Langdon escape, taking him to her apartment. After rifling through his mostly bloody personal effects, he finds a gizmo that projects a slightly doctored version of Botticelli’s illustration of Dante’s Inferno. Langdon and Sienna piece together clues in the drawing that lead them to Bertrand Zobrist (Ben Foster), an eccentric billionaire who recently committed suicide and who was intensely interested in the problem of human overpopulation. Zobrist’s Inferno drawing leads Langdon and Sienna to guess that he has created a virus that will “solve” overpopulation by infecting the world and killing some half the population. (Which, based on the information in Zobrist’s own creepy DEAD

Talk, wouldn’t do more than kick the population-problem can down the road a few decades but why let internal logic get in the way of a so-so mystery?) As Langdon and Sienna try to figure out how to uncover Zobrist’s plan and find the virus, they also discover that they are being followed, both by the shooty policewoman from the hospital (who is maybe working for the American government?) and by a bunch of shadowy types in black vans who are connected to the World Health Organization (or are they?). With officialdom — and unofficialdom, in the form of some organization run from a ship in the Adriatic by Harry Sims (Irrfan Khan) — on their trail, Langdon and Sienna scavenger-hunt around Florence, following Dante clues, in search of a way to save humanity from a new pandemic. And sure, nobody wants a plague, but it does give Langdon a chance to see his

age-appropriate former romantic ladyfriend, Elizabeth Sinskey (Sidse Babett Knudsen). She’s a take-charge woman who ultimately picked her WHO career over Langdon and doesn’t really seem inclined to rethink that decision. And, OK, the actress is almost 48, which is still a good dozen years younger than Hanks, but I nonetheless say “hurrah” for the middleaged suit-wearing lady who gets to be the receiver of longing looks. Elizabeth is a fun character. Also fun, so fun he feels like he’s from a totally different movie, is Harry Sims, who is a security/fixer-type guy. His weary “guess I’ll have to do it myself” attitude when his agents fail him and he finds out he’s been involved in something he wants no part of is kind of great. So is a scene he has with Elizabeth wherein he suggests they work together, despite her disdain for his clients and amorality. I will totally throw $20 scenes of Tom Cruise beating up multiple baddies in this silly but enjoyable continuation of the Jack Reacher story. Cruise plays an exmilitary officer who, like, hitchhikes and solves crimes because why not? C+

at the Kickstarter for a movie (or, better yet, TNT series!) featuring Elizabeth and Harry reluctantly working together to stop international disasters. I suspect that movie would be far more entertaining than this one, which never quite revs up, never has the energy of the previous two movies. Sure, all of these Robert Langdon affairs feel fairly silly — there is an “unnecessarily slow-moving dipping mechanism” quality to all of these capers. But Inferno feels both silly and flat. If anything, this movie is actually a little less cinematic than the book it’s based on. I went back and read my review of the book, which apparently included some more Italian Renaissance factoids as well as an interesting thought experiment that’s lopped off the end of the movie. I understand why, in both cases, the movie edited this stuff out, but as a result Inferno feels sort of thin and empty, like somebody forgot to add sausage and pasta to this stew and we’re left with a lot of cabbage and onions. I didn’t expect to love Inferno, to clear out a space on a 2016 top 10 list for this movie, but I did expect to have some degree of fun. Perhaps all the jump cuts and montages of apocalyptic hooey wedged sideways into the “figuring stuff out” scenes were supposed to provide that, but giving me the same headache that Robert Langdon has is not, ultimately, a great way to put the viewer in the movie. C Rated PG-13 for sequences of action and violence, disturbing images, some language, thematic elements and brief sensuality. Directed by Ron Howard with a screenplay by David Koepp (based on the book by Dan Brown), Inferno is two hours and one minute long and is distributed by Columbia Pictures.

*The Magnificent Seven (PG-13) Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt. Denzel Washington dresses like a cowboy, rides a horse and has a shootout ― if you need your movie to go deeper than that, this very conventional Western is probably not for you. But if your reaction is “yee-haw!” to that description, then saddle up because this story about seven plucky ne’er-do-wells and their attempt to bring justice to a small town is lots of fun. B+ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (PG-13) Asa Butterfield, Eva Green. This book adaptation by Tim Burton gets bogged down in all the exposition and uni-

verse-building about a world of supernatural-power-having kids and the scary things that are hunting them but still has moments of good adventure. B Pete’s Dragon (PG) Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford. Though a bit drowsy, this gentle tale of a boy who is lost in the woods and finds a friend in a big green dragon is a sweet old-fashioned (1980s) kid adventure. B Storks (PG) Voices Andy Samberg, Kelsey Grammer. Solid vocal talent does not save the all-noise, no-charm story of a stork and an orphan attempting to deliver a baby to her new home. C

Godsmack frontman turns intimate on new solo record By Michael Witthaus

• Moving pictures: Last year, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Rush finished their 40thanniversary tour, likely the end of their life on the road. A documentary, Rush – Time Stand Still, chronicles the “R40” tour, from inside the dressing rooms to the massive stage show. Narrated by Paul Rudd, the film features interviews with the band and its devoted fans. Go Thursday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m. at Cinemagic & IMAX Theatre, 1226 Hooksett Road, Hooksett. Tickets $15.75 at • Granite voices: It’s a makeup date — the best kind. Last spring, Tuckermans at 9 canceled a show, the first time that’s happened to the a capella group. Called T9 by fans, they take well-known rock, blues, soul and jazz tunes and give them the vocals-only treatment — everything from The Beatles to Maroon 5, with a selection from Les Miserables dropped in for spice. Go Friday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. at First Parish Church, 218 Central Ave., Dover. Tickets are $5-$25 — see • Still surfing: Dueling tours continue, as The Beach Boys stop in Concord. Last August, Brian Wilson and Al Jardine brought Pet Sounds to Meadowbrook; this endless summer edition has founding member Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who joined in 1965, singing the group’s many classic songs. Their young backing band is getting solid reviews everywhere they go. Go Saturday, Nov. 5, at 8 p.m., at Capitol Center for the Arts, 44 S. Main St., Concord. Tickets are $59.50-$99.50 at • Seasonal keys: As autumn glides inexorably into winter, George Winston traces each step on his piano. He always plays solo. “That’s what the music wants; that’s my temperament, anyway,” he said last year. His subtle jazz helped launch the Windham Hill label in the early ’80s, though the “new age” label it received didn’t please him — he steadfastly calls his style “folk piano.” Go Monday, Nov. 7, at 8 p.m. at Tupelo Music Hall, 2 Young Road, Londonderry. Tickets $50 at • Spare power: Critically lauded duo Big Thief hits the Granite State for a midweek show with Frankie Cosmos and Guy Capecelatro III. Anchored by the aching songs of Adrianne Lenker, they topped the NPR Your Favorite New Musicians Of 2016 (So Far) readers poll after the release of their debut LP. Go Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. at 3S Artspace, 319 Vaughan St., Portsmouth. Tickets are $16 at

Sully Erna’s first solo record was a complex tapestry of sound and rhythm — ethereal, even symphonic at times. Erna goes in another direction on his latest, Hometown Life — several, actually. Released in late September, it opens with grandeur with the epic title track, turns a bit Latin on “Your Own Drum,” then offers pedal steel guitar and other country elements on “Different Kind of Tears” — that’s just the first three songs. At turns jazzily buoyant and achingly honest, it’s a rich and wholly winning effort, a more than worthy follow up to 2010’s Avalon. Both records share a common thread: a studio band that includes mostly local musicians. Chris Lester, Lisa Guyer and Dave Stefenalli, ex-bandmates in Mama Kicks, returned for the new disc, along with Seacoast guitarist Tim Theriault and Boston cellist Irina Chrkova. Erna even brought his father in to play trumpet on the record’s most upbeat number, “Turn It Up.” Erna explained in a recent phone interview that once again looking in his musical backyard was an easy choice. “They’re all phenomenal, and I knew that no matter what I threw in front of them, they’d be able to not only play it, and play it well, but bring a kind of authenticity,” he said. “What I thought was cool is I could use the exact same musicians that helped me create this really earthy, tribal, mystical record — Avalon — to create something completely different.” Lester and Theriault are backing Erna for a short tour that stops in Hampton Beach on Nov. 12. The shows will be stripped down affairs. “I want to present these songs in a very intimate way for now, because I really believe in the songwriting,” Erna said. “I want to touch people on an emotional level.” Lyrically, Erna is exposed and vulnerable on the new record. The tone is set on the opening track, surprisingly written at the end of the project. He uncovered an “epicsounding” piano riff from a collection of song notes and began trying to match his emotions to the music. Soon, memories of growing up in Lawrence, Mass., came to the forefront.

in the song sums up Erna’s ambivalent relationship with his hometown: “I breathe in the air that’s so unclean/yet keeps me alive,” he sings. “I don’t think I would have been able to go through these experiences of my life — the trauma, feelings and the ups and downs — if I hadn’t come from such a crazy city like Lawrence,” he said. “So there it was, the content was there and plenty of it. I could probably write a whole album on just that song.” Initially, he worried that the last-minute addition would disrupt the flow of Hometown Life. “I was really concerned about it fitting with the record because it’s not like ... it’s disconnected from the textures of the rest of the album,” he said. “Then I thought, you know what? Nothing sounds the same on this record.” Working with Erna for the first time was Nashville songwriter Zac Malloy. “Sometimes another writer will steer you in a different direction, they’ll zig when you zag and it really opens up a whole new world of information,” Erna said. “I had my management reach out to see who was available that wasn’t afraid to work with the big bad

wolf from Godsmack, and Zac was one of the first who spoke up and said he was really interested. I really loved what he brought to the table.” Malloy’s contribution led to some of Erna’s favorite moments on the record, particularly “Different Kind of Tears,” a song both drew from their experience raising teenagers. “Emotional pain in their lives always feels so unique, like no one can underSULLY ERNA stand how badly it hurts ...,” he said. “It’s a different kind of pain for them. Really, it was inspired by the younger demographic that’s experiencing real-life situations for the first time. Same thing with ‘Your Own Drum’ — it was more about making sure that they have identity; don’t be a follower, be a leader. Go find your own path, be in front of everyone else.” For the linchpin of a high-powered heavy metal band, exploring his softer side energized Erna, and he’s excited to unveil Hometown Life with spare instrumentation. “I really think the new songs will translate in a much different way, stronger to a degree, when they’re stripped down,” he said. “So we’re gonna play around with this a little bit. See how it feels.”

I had my management reach out to see who ... wasn’t afraid to work with the big bad wolf from Godsmack...

“With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener” wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram of Vance Gilbert, performing Saturday, Nov. 5, 7 p.m. at Simple Gifts Coffee House (58 Lowell St., UU Church, Nashua). Vance’s compositions, while frequently employing sophisticated melodies and harmonies that attest to his jazz roots, remain sublime attestations to his storyteller’s craft.

WEATHER BEATEN COOL A longtime disciple of the rich and strange music that sings behind the American veil, The New Yorker praised Jeffrey Foucault for his “stark, literate songs that are as wide open as the landscape of his native Midwest.” Appearing Thursday, Nov. 17, 7:30 p.m. at Capitol Center for the Arts (44 S. Main St., Concord), he’s spent the last decade and a half mining the darker seams of country and blues… garnering accolades for a tersely elegant brand of songwriting set apart by its haunting imagery and weather-beaten cool.

your resources. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) I stare at these women with their perfectly organized strollers and neat little babies sitting upright and shiny, and I honestly have no idea how they do it. By not doing anything else. Next question? Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Making an idea work is hard. It takes guts. It’s expensive. And it’s a hell of a lot of work. It’s also risky. So don’t get pompous and think you are Einstein because you are full of great ideas. (And I can only say this because sometimes I think I’m Einstein because of my own great idea.) If you want credit for your idea, you have to make it happen. Don’t worry about credit. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Through my own show, my books, and whatever is coming next, I will still be out there, for you, committed to being honest and helping you solve your problems. It’s all about solving problems. Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) I’ve been annoyed by the loud breathing from someone behind me in a checkout line, by the instrumental music in a department store, by nosy people, rude waiters, or a coworker’s mere existence. Don’t let a minor annoyance get you down. Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Here are some examples: You should clean the house. You should get married. You should want to have children. You should go to bed earlier. You should be healthier. You should eat better. You should make more money. You should love me. ... Instead, look at yourself. Do you want to clean the house, get married, have children, go to bed earlier, be healthier, eat better, make more money, love someone else or yourself? Those are issues you can actually do something about. So what do you want to do? Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) How can you pursue a dream if it isn’t your dream? Do you even know what your dream is? Dreaming’s fine, but don’t forget the laundry.


All quotes are from A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life, by Bethenny Frankel, born Nov. 4, 1970. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Who are you, and what do you want? It’s not an interrogation. It’s a call to introspection. It’s OK, take your time with it. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) You’ve probably seen this play out on reality TV, where people say, “Oh, the editing made me look like this, I’m not really like that,” or, “But it’s television, I was just trying to put on a good show.” It happens all the time in real life, too. It’s the “I meant to do that” syndrome. It’s the “I’ve never seen that person in my life,” syndrome. It’s covering your ears and shouting “Blah blah blah” rather than admit to what’s really going on. Admit to what’s really going on. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) The point is, the Optimist Club is not calling me to become an honorary member anytime soon. And that’s fine. Coming from a place of yes is not the same as being an optimist. Say yes. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Does he sit in bed eating and farting, or flip the channels for twenty minutes, only to stop at the Victoria’s Secret commercial as you sit next to him, eight months pregnant with hairy armpits? Everyone needs to pitch in. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) You still need to use your common sense, know when to stick with something and when it’s time to bail, but if you’ve got your head on straight and you’re coming from a place of yes, then yes — you will get there, even if it looks like you’re headed straight into the pit of doom. Common sense prevails. Aries (March 21 – April 19) During the filming of Real Housewives, my boyfriend at the time used to say, “Don’t use the show as therapy,” but now I say, “Why not?” Use

Religion adapts to technology experience those creatures’ lives apart from Zanisnik, “Perhaps the project suggests that A network of freelance Buddhist priests in Japan last year began offering in-home, a la carte services (for those adherents who shun temples) through Amazon in Japan, quoting fixed fees and bypassing the usual awkward deliberation over “donations.” And in September, Pastor David Taylor of Joshua Media Ministries International (St. Louis, Missouri) announced, to great fanfare, that he had “resurrected” a diabetic woman, 40 minutes after her death, by sending the lady a text message through Facebook (though, of course, neither she nor any family member was available for an interview).

Redneck chronicles

Thousands flocked to the annual Roadkill Cooking Festival in Marlinton, West Virginia, in September, featuring an array of “tasting” dishes (e.g., black bear, possum, elk, snapping turtle) with a competition in which judges deducted points if the “chef” had not managed to remove all gravel or asphalt.

Awesome numbers

The Justice Department revealed in an October court filing that former National Security Agency contractor Harold Martin III, 51, had stolen at least 500 million pages of “sensitive government files,” bit by bit over two decades. (Bonus questions: How does no one notice, for years, and anyway, how many total pages of “sensitive government files” are there?)

Leading economic indicators

In October (as in supposedly every previous October since the 13th century), some British official arrived at the Royal Courts of Justice in London and paid rent to the queen for use of two properties for the sum of “a knife, an axe, six oversized horseshoes and 61 nails,” according to reporting by Atlas Obscura. “No one knows exactly where Fine points of Canadian law • Luckily, thought Jamie Richardson of these two pieces of land are,” the website Whitehorse, Yukon, she had medical insur- reported, but one is in Shropshire County, ance for her 7-year-old Akita, who had torn and the other near the Royal Courts. a ligament in a hind leg, but it turned out that the policy, written by Canada’s larg- Great art! est pet insurer, Petsecure, did not cover dog • New York City sculptor Bryan Zanisnik, injuries from “jumping, running, slipping, operating on a grant from an emerging-arttripping or playing” that is, Richardson ist program of Socrates Sculpture Park concluded, injuries caused by “being a in the Astoria neighborhood in Queens, dog.” (After Richardson protested, Pet- recently created a 10-piece “garden” of secure relented but, it said, only because concrete Christopher Walken heads to honRichardson had been a longtime customer.) or the actor, who grew up in Astoria.

In October, the Ontario Court of Appeal upheld a jury verdict that parceled out “fault,” but assigned more to the victim of the 2006 car theft (Rankin’s Garage of Paisley, Ontario) than to the mother or the driver (because Rankin’s having left the key in the car overnight made it irresistible to “teenage car thieves”).

their physical appearance, which is generally all that humans know. “We have five glorious senses,” he told the Ig Nobel audience, and need to “escape the tyranny” of the visual. “Drop onto all fours,” he recommended. “Sniff the ground. Lick a leaf.”

Charles Foster, recent recipient of the “Ig Nobel” prize in biology (and a fellow at Oxford University), has recently lived as a badger (inside a hole in Wales), an otter playing in rivers, and an “urban fox” rummaging through garbage bins in London, in addition to a red deer and (“ridiculously,” he admits) a migratory bird mapping treetop air currents, all in order to authentically

Walken’s DNA was imbued into the soil of Astoria, and now Walken mushrooms are growing everywhere.” • “To be honest,” wrote New York Times art critic Holland Cotter in his lead sentence on Oct. 7, “I wonder what a lot of people see in abstract painting.” Then, nevertheless, Carter began praising the current Guggenheim Museum collection by abstract artist Agnes Martin, highlighted by her “Untitled No. 5,” which consists of a pinkish horizontal space, on top of a yellowish horizontal space, on top of a bluish horizontal space, exactly repeated underneath except the pinkish and bluish spaces are shortened near the edges of the canvas, but not the yellowish space. Asked Carter, “How do you approach an art empty of ... evident narratives” and “make it your own?” His unrestrained 1,600-word rave did not quite answer that, except to quote Martin’s suggestion that the visitor just “sit and look.”


A recent Better Business Bureau study in Canada found that, contrary to popular belief, it is the “millennial” generation and those aged 25 to 55, rather than seniors, who are more likely now to fall victim to scammers, fueled by users’ lax skepticism about new technology. If accurate, the study would account for how a Virginia Tech student in September fell for a telephone call from “the IRS” threatening her over “back taxes.” She complied with instructions from the “agent” to send $1,762 in four iTunes gift cards.
