The first Saturday in May brought big hats, seersucker suits, mint juleps — all parts of the festivities surrounding The Kentucky Derby. Thousands pack the stands for the big event each year with the glimmer of hope that their horse will be crowned the winner. Money is no object when it comes to raising and training these horses, with a very conservative estimate of $100,000,000 already invested by time the 20 race horses make it to the starting gates on Derby Day. I’ve always been fascinated by how we easily justify expending significant resources on an event such as horse racing but struggle with investing in systems such as education. A few weeks ago, members of New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to pass full-day kindergarten, an annual investment of $18,000,000, to help support the districts currently offering full-day K and remove obstacles for those who cannot. Gov. Sununu has come out in strong support of this measure as he wants to ensure that our state remains competitive with families hoping to build a life here — an important measure as we work to retain and attract younger professionals and rebuild our workforce. We have much to be proud of in this state, but education funding has not often been part of that. Our independent spirit can sometimes leave communities to bear the burdens of adequacy and prevents us from seeing our state as a collective whole. I have seen firsthand the benefits of a student attending all-day kindergarten as my nephew’s school offers this public benefit. Now that he’s in second-grade, his reading and writing skills are exceptional and he is already teaching Auntie a thing or two about world geography and earth sciences. An unrecognized benefit of the extended school day was improving his social skills and building a great group of friends that are still among his “core” today. Although this bill still has one more turn at passing the full House, the initial “ought to pass” demonstrates our collective commitment to our state’s children. In the long run, this relatively small investment in the future of New Hampshire will certainly pay dividends as we work to provide a more thorough and equitable early education platform for our youth. Maybe we won’t realize it tomorrow but passage of this bill is vital in ensuring that we are helping to raise a generation that can be competitive in the starting boxes. And, as exhilarating as it can be to bet on the underdog, many of us prefer the safe bet. In this case, when we work to ensure that our kids are given the most opportunities we can provide for them, there is little doubt that we will all end as winners.

NEWS & NOTES Pot vote

For the first time in years, the New Hampshire Senate has passed a bill that would decriminalize the possession of a small amount of marijuana, according to press releases. The House passed HB 640 in March by an overwhelming vote of 318-36. And on May 11, it passed the Senate with a bipartisan group of nine Democrats and eight Republicans voting in favor of the measure, which would reduce the penalty for possession of up to 3/4 of an ounce to a violation. The current misdemeanor charges are punishable by up to one year in prison and a $2,000 fine. The new violation penalty would be up to $100 for a first offense and $300 for a third offense within three years of the first offense. Gov. Chris Sununu has said he supports decriminalization. Democrats, led by Senate Democratic Leader Jeff Woburn, touted the bill as a way to prioritize police resources toward more dangerous opioids while also taking a step toward legalization. Republicans are still divided in the Senate, where they hold 14 seats. Senate President Chuck Morse said in a statement that he is concerned about the bill’s passage, saying he believes it sends “mixed signals” during a drug addiction crisis. According to the latest poll by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, 68 percent of adults in the state support making small amounts of cannabis legal for recreational use (49 percent strongly support it) while 27 percent oppose it. The House has historically approved of decriminalization with a larger majority each year, but the Senate has killed such legislation every time.

Ayotte for FBI?

Former U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte is on a short list of possible candidates to replace James Comey as the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Politico reported May 11. President Trump abruptly fired Comey on Tuesday, May 9. As of the morning of Tuesday, May 16, candidates who interviewed for the job so far

include former Michigan Republican congressman Mike Rogers, Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, Fran Townsend, former homeland security adviser to George W. Bush, Washington lawyer Alice Fisher, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and a handful of others, according to a May 15 CNN report. The Politico story reported Ayotte is well regarded by the White House after she helped usher the Supreme Court nomination of Neil Gorsuch through the Senate and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat, said she would likely support the nomination of Ayotte, citing her experience as New Hampshire’s attorney general. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona also supported Ayotte’s possible nomination.

New factory

A car parts manufacturer in Quebec has decided to locate its first American-based operation in northern New Hampshire, according to a press release from the governor’s office. Deflex Composite of Saint-Victor, Quebec, produces fiberglass for Volvo automobiles and waterslides and at its new location in Berlin it plans to produce front and rear bumpers for Volvo buses. According to the press release, Deflex has signed a lease for a 9,600-square-foot facility where it plans to hire three people initially and another seven by the end of the year. Production is expected to start in July.

Emergency funds

Gov. Sununu is asking the federal government for emergency relief funds for the nor’easter that hit the state in March, which piled on several inches of snow over a two-day period and caused “widespread damage” and “strained state and local resources,” according to a press release from the governor’s office. The response cost a total of more than $2.1 million and nearly 144,000 residents were left without power. About 500 schools were forced to close and there were hundreds of traffic accidents. Carroll and Belknap counties carried the largest cost burdens.

The Franklin city council appointed Scott Clarenbach, a sitting city councilor, to serve as acting mayor. Clarenbach will be allowed to serve in both roles until elections in October. Ken Merrifield stepped down as mayor to become the state’s labor commissioner.

Mental health

The Senate has given a preliminary green light to a plan to substantially increase the number of beds for mental health treatment in the state, the AP reported. The bill would add 68 new beds by requiring the state to contract with nonprofit facilities and private hospitals. There would be 40 community-based beds for those transitioning from hospital settings, 20 beds for involuntary submission and eight beds for peer respite. The bill heads to the Senate Finance Committee. A shortage of beds and psychiatric staff in the state has led to a backlog of patients waiting for mental health care, with 46 adults and four children waiting each day on average.

Recent poll

In the most recent Granite State Poll by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, Gov. Chris Sununu’s approval rating went up, drug addiction remains the top concern among voters and full-day kindergarten is hugely popular. According to the poll, Gov. Sununu enjoys a 57 percent approval rating, an increase from 42 percent in February. In February, the plurality of respondents (45 percent) said they didn’t know if they approved or disapproved. Now, folks in that category make up 26 percent of respondents. Only 17 percent disapprove of Sununu. One of Sununu’s initiatives, state funding for full-day kindergarten, also has the support of the majority of residents, with 83 percent supporting a bill recent-

On Monday, May 15, Anheuser-Busch announced that it will be investing $11.3 million in its Merrimack brewery, which will be used to expand craft brewing initiatives and “cross brewing capabilities.” The project would involve the installation of new fermentation tanks and four new grain silos. The investment is part of $2 billion the company plans to spend on capital projects through 2020. Of that, $500 million will be spent in 2017. In a press release, the company called it “among the largest capital investment programs in U.S. brewing history.”


Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is putting an end to its Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility program, according to the AP. The program will be discontinued by month’s end due to staffing issues at each location where the program has been offered, including Lebanon, Concord, Bedford, Nashua and Brattleboro. D-H’s chief clinical officer, Dr. Edward Merrens, told the Valley News that the program was especially sensitive to staffing pressures since treatment requires patients to come into facilities at specific times. Merrens said the 124 patients currently enrolled in the program are being informed and directed to alternative care options.

Tracking hepatitis C NH health officials playing catch-up By Ryan Lessard

Since health officials began tracking new hepatitis C cases in the state in November, they’ve counted more than 100 — and they believe it’s only the tip of the iceberg. Clinicians specializing in infectious diseases have previously told the Hippo that hepatitis C cases are exploding in the state, driven by intravenous drug use. It is seen alongside many other types of infections such as bacterial infections in the blood and heart valve infections that are fatal if untreated and sometimes require valve replacement surgery. Left untreated, hepatitis C can cause cirrhosis and liver cancer.


The state Department of Health and Human Services received 194 total reports of suspected hepatitis C cases from November 2016 through March 2017. Of those, 108 have been confirmed, six of which are acute (recent) infections, according to DHHS spokesperson Jake Leon. Beth Daly, the chief of the infectious disease control bureau at DHHS, said if they extrapolate the national rate of infection for a population the size of New Hampshire’s, one would expect at least 1,078 new infections each year.

Daly, so public health officials are playing catch-up in an effort to create a clearer picture of the problem. Daly said the reason for the change was the emergence of new treatments that can cure the disease and interventions that can help prevent it from spreading. One potential intervention strategy currently working its way through the legislature to be legalized is a needle exchange program, which would supply drug users with clean needles in exchange for used ones. Daly said she and others in the department have been supportive of such a measure and would refer users to a needle exchange program if it becomes legal. Historically, the best available treatment had been an immune system booster that was very hard on patients, according to Benjamin Chan, the state epidemiologist. “Up until recently, we did not have great treatment for hepatitis C virus infection,” Chan said. But in just the past five years or so, antiviral medication has been available to treat hepatitis C, and potentially eradicate the disease from the body. Chan said the antiviral treatment takes about 12 weeks, after which time physicians monitor a patient to make New treatments sure the disease doesn’t rebound. New Hampshire was the last state to make “These have proven to be very, very effechepatitis C a reportable disease, according to tive,” Chan said. So far, the reported numbers are not on track to reach that, since only a tenth of that number was counted in a five-month period, but Daly suspects the numbers are being underreported, which she said tends to happen early on when a new disease reporting requirement is implemented. “We know we’re missing cases, already. We’re working with providers to get them to report them to us,” Daly said. In fact, even 1,078 may be a low bar considering the drug crisis in New Hampshire is worse than in most other states, and hepatitis C is commonly spread by intravenous drug users sharing needles. Daly said the state is one of the three states with the highest overdose deaths per capita. “We are one of the harder-hit states regarding the opioid epidemic,” Daly said. And hepatitis C cases are unevenly distributed throughout the country. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half the states that reported cases had rates below the national rate of .7 cases per 100,000 population while 16 of the 40 states reporting accounted for 76 percent of the total cases reported in 2014.

The efficacy depends on a number of factors such as past treatment, the genotype of the virus and whether the patient already has cirrhosis of the liver. Of the 108 confirmed new cases in the state, four people have been treated and cured.

Preventing outbreaks

Having new hepatitis C cases tracked on a regular basis (each new case must be reported within 72 hours) means public health officials will be able to detect any potential outbreaks. Daly said it was a matter of luck that during its outbreak in 2012, Exeter Hospital was able to piece together the puzzle and report it to the state. “If [Exeter Hospital] hadn’t recognized itself that it was an outbreak, we wouldn’t have detected that because hepatitis C wasn’t reportable,” Daly said. She said it would take time before she was comfortable with the data they’ve collected, at least one year. Until then, the picture is too incomplete to draw any conclusions. However, there is a small sign that the problem may be worse in New Hampshire than the national average. Daly said a state the size of New Hampshire would normally expect about nine acute cases reported every year. In just the first five months, they’ve already counted six.


Researchers shed light on secret fungi By Ryan Lessard

New species of truffles have been discovered, named and recorded in New Hampshire as researchers attempt to learn more about the fungi’s mysterious role in the forest ecosystem. A truffle is a tuber that grows underground and spreads its spores by being eaten by forest-dwelling animals who sniff out the fruiting fungus, dig it up and spread the spores through their feces. In French and other Mediterranean cultures, certain species of truffle are considered a high-end delicacy. Ryan Stephens, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of New Hampshire, has been researching the diets of small mammals in New Hampshire forests and, knowing that involves truffles, began the first real crack at cataloguing the truffle species found here. “When we first started, we didn’t even know if we were going to find any,” Stephens said. HIPPO | MAY 18 - 24, 2017 | PAGE 6

Because truffles grow underground close to the surface, they are hidden like needles in a haystack. He and other researchers essentially raked up sections of forest in a grid and recorded whatever truffles they could find in the Bartlett

Experimental Forest. Since 2014, they found 14 species of truffle from more than 6,000 samples; six of those were not described in science and two were never before seen by humans. Stephens said that while they are edible,

they’re not exactly ready for the restaurant scene. “I have tried a couple of them and they kind of taste like mushrooms,” Stephens said. He described the odor of one of the newly documented species — named E. bartlettii after the Bartlett Experimental Forest — as being a cross between garlic and road tar. One they named E. oreoides after the Oreo cookie because it shared the same dark-light-dark color pattern when cut in half and had a sweet odor. The E. macrosporus gave off a citrusy odor when it started to decompose, according to Stephens. While they may not be terribly tasty to humans, Stephens said, local small mammals like chipmunks, mice and voles love them. “Maybe they have a more refined palate than I do, because they seem to like it a lot,” Stephens said. Still, none of them are likely to be toxic, since truffles generally rely on mammals to eat them for the spores to spread.

The E. bartlettii and E. remickii (named after an undergrad who assisted in the research) are only known to be from New Hampshire, while the others they found are widely distributed throughout eastern North America. Stephens said their findings are just scratching the surface. Based on studies of spores found in animal feces, he estimates there are more than 30 different species in New Hampshire. He’s continuing his research into how important a role truffles play as a food source to small creatures that can sniff out the fungi and to the larger forest ecosystem. Stephens’ preliminary hunch is that

truffles play a much larger role than previously thought. He believes that after seeds and acorns become scarce, chipmunks and mice turn to truffles as a backup. “So they’re almost like a reserve food source,” Stephens said. The diversity of digested truffle found in chipmunk scat, for instance, more than doubles from early June to mid August, Stephens said. Local environmental scientist Rick Van de Poll recommends you do not eat mushrooms, truffles or any other type of fungi you find in the outdoors without first identifying the species as edible from a reliable source.



Delegation Dispatch Response to Comey firing

Following the firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Trump, all four Democratic congresswomen released statements decrying the move and calling for an independent counsel or independent prosecutor to be selected to oversee the investigation into possible Russian collusion with any Trump campaign individuals to influence the election. Here are brief quotes taken from their statements. • Sen. Jeanne Shaheen: “This unprecedented interference by the President of the United States in an ongoing criminal investigation leaves no doubt that the only way to uncover the truth about Russian interference in our election is with an independent investigation.” • Sen. Maggie Hassan: “The American people deserve a full accounting of the process that went into this decision and deserve to know whether the FBI’s ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election had any influence on the President’s action.” • Rep. Carol Shea-Porter: “While I vehemently disagreed with former Director Comey’s decisions shortly before the 2016 election, the fact is that President Trump just fired the person leading the investigation into his Administration’s ties to Russia. The credibility of that investigation is now in serious doubt, and the need for a Congressionally-ordered independent investigation into these matters is clearer than ever.”

• Rep. Annie Kuster: “Mr. Comey has had multiple missteps in recent months that have politicized the Federal Bureau of Investigation but the timing of his dismissal raises red flags. The American people deserve a qualified successor who will restore public confidence in the FBI. Furthermore, this unprecedented firing underscores the need for an independent nonpartisan investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia’s interference in the election.”

Health care

Sens. Hassan and Shaheen were in New Hampshire last week to talk about the American Health Care Act (Trumpcare) passed by House Republicans, which would potentially undo many protections enshrined in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) such as a ban on withholding coverage for preexisting conditions and minimum coverage standards. They said during a press conference in Concord that Trumpcare would end Medicaid expansion, which provides coverage for 50,000 low-income residents, many of them suffering from substance use disorder. And at a live streamed press conference at the U.S. Capitol on May 16, Shaheen and Hassan, alongside other senators representing the states hardest hit by the opioid crisis, spoke again about how it would hurt efforts to provide treatment to people suffering addiction. “It would turn back the progress that we’ve made,” Shaheen said.


Both Shaheen and Hassan gave remarks at an event in Salem hosted by the Salem, Derry, Londonderry Chambers of Commerce on Friday, May 12. Later, Shaheen toured Rockingham Brewery in Derry and attended a roundtable discussion at the Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester to talk about veterans’ health care.

NEUROPATHY BREAKTHROUGH TREATMENT There is now a facility right here in Portsmouth, New Hampshire that offers healing and hope without taking additional medications. You no longer need to suffer with nerve pain! Nerve damage and pain is primarily caused by a lack of blood flow and nutrients to the nerves in the hands, feet, and back. When these nerves begin to “die”, they cause burning, balance problems, discomfort, numbness and tingling. Regardless of what you have been told, neuropathy is often reversible. The National Institutes of Health (part of the U.S Department of Health and Human Services) recently released this breakthrough statement. “Peripheral nerves have the ability to regenerate as long as the underlying nerve cell has not been killed.” The Center for Functional Medicine & Wellbeing has been successfully helping our patients reverse neuropathy for over a decade using a Functional Medicine model. By getting to the root cause of neuropathy/nerve pain, our patients are routinely able to reduce and/or eliminate the need for medications. Our leading edge, FDA approved technologies rejuvenate and heal nerves by increasing blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients back to your cells to restore function and stop pain. We empower you, your cells and nerves to optimize health. Recovery is possible. Our patients tell us they no longer have numbness, or burning. They sleep better, walk further and enjoy life more. Your personalized treatment plan is based on a detailed non-invasive neurological and vascular exam. Give us a call today to see if you are a candidate for this care.

Other companies make plug-ins, right? What makes Addaptation unique? It’s the micro apps component of it. It’s this philosophy of focus and at an industry-specific level. … The past development structures get you into these monolithic technology patterns. The whole world is going much more micro; micro services, micro apps. … To pull it back for a second, the idea is that the companies out there … start a project and it never ends. When you bolt on a platform and it’s not customizable, or you do something to try and enhance your system and it costs you a fortune — all these problems exist with existing tools, so what we’re doing is we’re coming up with a philosophical shift in the way we approach plug-ins, let’s say, and using micro apps as this philosophy to build very targeted solutions that are very customizable, and it’s been cost-effective for these organizations that we work with. It’s a shift in the way

So what is Addaptation? Addaptation is a platform to create micro apps. What it does is it helps companies that use cloud software. When they have a problem with their cloud software, it helps them deploy targeted solutions. So, for instance, a lot of companies use a platform like and it has all these opportunities to build on top of it, but in a lot of cases you’re kind of building within the framework of Salesforce. What micro apps and the Addaptation platform does is allow you to build outside of Salesforce but allows you to connect back into it. So you can really extend the platform to do exactly what you need it to. … To use kind of a more common term, we build plug-ins … for companies that use the cloud. And our plug-ins can be anything from analytics tools to specific tools to solve … a pivotal piece of a process they’re having a problem with. … We have a lot of customers in the nonprofit space and those customers use it to connect donor management software to their existing systems. … That’s where these micro apps come into play because they’re really single-purpose, focused tools that … extend the platforms that you have and give you that bump to whatever process or task that you have.

that cloud technology is built. Nobody is really doing that right now, and that’s the innovation. So is each micro app that you sell created by commission? Right now they Courtesy photo. are. One of the things we’re building is our micro app exchange. … Again, using the nonprofit space [as an example], a lot of nonprofits may use a software package like Greenlight or like Salesforce and we have a micro app solution that can go right into … either Salesforce or Greenlight to do a specific task for them and that way we can distribute the solution to a wider market. What did you have to do to compete for this award? I think the biggest thing was trying to plot out our business strategy, our development plan, in a really easy-to-digest way. You can tell by the way we’re talking … that this is a somewhat complicated and difficult-to-understand topic because it’s enterprise cloud software. It’s not something that people deal with on a dayto-day basis as consumers. So our approach was to try to share our ideas in a visually compelling way that made sense but also plotted out our company strategy over the next few months. I think what we ended up with was a really compelling go-to-market strategy with a compelling brand and a compelling idea. … And I think that’s what was appealing to the judges when they tallied up their votes. What’s the long-term plan for the company? Right now, we’re pushing the product to market and growing the business. The longterm plan is to invest the proper amount of money in the business to grow it and scale it. Our goal is to be a New Hampshire company, stay a New Hampshire company and to build the business here and then over the next few years, our goal is to be the No. 1 micro app platform in the world. There are competitors out there … but we think we have an advantage in our approach to the market and in the way that we’re thinking about the platform and the technology and we think we have a pretty good shot at, over the next few years, taking most of the market share in the micro app space. — Ryan Lessard

QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Swastikas on campus University police at the University of New Hampshire campus in Durham are investigating swastika drawings found in a student’s dorm hallway in Stoke Hall, the largest dorm building on campus. The AP reported the discovery happened after a recent forum where students asked administrators to do more to combat racism in the school. University President Mark Huddleston released a statement condemning the racist graffiti. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The images have been removed, according to the UNH spokesperson.

Foster care in crisis The foster care system in New Hampshire is strained by an everexpanding demand and dwindling supply of caregivers. The Telegraph of Nashua reported the opioid addiction crisis is feeding new children into the system at a rate faster than the Division of Children, Youth and Services can adapt and faster than they can recruit new foster parents. Meanwhile, DCYF is in a process of getting reformed by the state legislature after being chronically underfunded and understaffed for years. And the strain on existing foster families is causing some foster parents to burn out. Children who belong in foster care are now being placed in residential group homes instead. QOL Score: -1 Comment: There were 800 children placed in foster care last year.

More movies Chunky’s Cinema Pub in Manchester opens this week, according to its Facebook page, with the movie schedule up and tickets ($5.99 for matinees, $7.99 for weekend screenings) ready for purchase. According to the Union Leader, the new spot on Huse Road, located in the former Lowe’s Home Improvement building, has 10 screens, leather swivel chairs, a full food menu with table service and a selection of beer and wine to sip while you enjoy the show. QOL Score: +1 Comment: More movies is always a good thing, in QOL’s opinion.

Recycling furniture A Concord-based company, IRN, is sending furniture from Southern New Hampshire University — enough to fill 11 shipping containers — to charities in Somalia and Armenia, according to a story in the Concord Monitor. The university is replacing all the furniture with new pieces as part of a renovation. The company, which is about 15 years old, works with 201 charities that need furniture and now operates in 25 states. QOL Score: + 1 Comment: Another IRN project this year involved sending furniture from Concord High School to Jamaica.

Celtics roll on in NBA playoffs

Fred Afshar 603.548.8989

Testimonial for Fred Afshar … “Working with Fred was an absolute pleasure! He is completely committed to his job and clients. He immediately made my husband and me feel like family. We regularly reached out to him throughout the home buying process and he not only responded quickly but made us feel as though we were his biggest and only priority. His years of experience show clearly in everything he does. He is compassionate, brilliant, and hard working. I will (and have) recommended him to any friends/ family looking to buy/sell a home. He made this somewhat bumpy/ scary process seem easy; and for that, we are forever grateful to him and his team.

Keller Williams Realty Metro 168 S. River Rd. • 603.232.8282

With Monday’s scintillating 115-105 Game 7 win over Washington in Round 2 — that has me having to take back every bad thing I’ve ever said and thought about Kelly Olynyk — the Celtics are now playing with house money. Two wins and a competitive series versus Cleveland and real luck in Tuesday’s after-our-deadline lottery is all that stands between them and an A+ season. Time will tell on that. But for now the NBA playoffs keep rolling on and here’s a few thoughts on that. With LeBron James’ dominance on display nightly, he’s the biggest story of the playoffs. But some still hold up Michael Jordan’s six rings as evidence he’s not close to challenging him for best ever since Russell. First, LeBron has three at 32, which is what MJ had at 32, so he’s on the same pace. LBJ’s also not likely to retire at 34 as MJ did the second time, giving him more time. Though, if MJ didn’t retire the first time it’s likely he wins eight straight — only Bill Russell (and Sam Jones) did that. But Michael never got by Detroit or Boston until his full team was assembled, while Lebron dragged Cleveland all the way to the 2007 Finals at 22. True, they got swept, but given how weak Cleveland was it says something about him just to get there. Ditto in 2014 — with both Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving injured and not playing. And if he gets to the Finals this year, that’s seven straight times. Only Celtics have done that. Bottom line: I’d still take Michael’s will to win over anyone, but the historical greatness gap between them is shrinking. The most ridiculous part of last week’s bash Ray Allen Area 21 party was hearing Kendrick Perkins and Big Baby David talking about how hurtful Ray’s decision was to leave them behind to sign with Miami in 2012. Earth to Perk and Baby: Neither of you were even on the team then.

Both were gone by the end of 2011. Which makes those two sound like morons. And why is it never mentioned free agent Jason Terry (who was terrible) got offered more money than Ray to play his position? Where does that fall on the loyalty scale? Speaking of morons. Draymond Green calling someone else a “dirty player” as he did about Kelly Olynyk in his podcast after the Kelly Oubre dust-up is almost as laughable as Donald Trump firing his FBI director for being a “showboat.” Time for the Celtics “fans” who chanted “[blank] you, Oubre” in Game 5 to grow up. And not only for the obvious reason that kids were at the game. It’s dullard behavior a week after the Adam Jones N-word flap gave Boston another black eye nationally and provided more ammo to those saying Boston fandom simply lacks class. And Wyc Grousbeck’s Trump-like blameit-on-the-other-guy response — “I’ve seen bad behavior at home and on the road” — is irrelevant. He should say that was abhorrent fan behavior and we’ll do something about it. Period. Back to the president for just a second. After being asked in a pre-series press conference with Golden State about what takes his attention off basketball this time of year, Gregg Popovich said DC and The Donald. Most cogent was him sounding very much like a coach talking about a player he didn’t want on his team in saying very introspectively, “it all starts and ends with him — not the people or the country, but him.” Speaking of which, given that superstar is the most dominant position when it comes to winning in all of sports, I’ve been holding out for some time now giving in to the “Pop is the NBA’s best coach” narrative until I saw how the first Tim Duncan- (and Matt Bonner-)less year would go. But given what he’s done in transitioning away from Duncan (and Bonner) and developing Kawhi Leonard from scratch as their next star, I’m ready. He’s the best NBA coach of

the last 20 years and maybe since I’ve been watching basketball altogether. Though general manager RC Buford gets a lot of credit for finding Leonard at 15 and for continually finding useful to great players like Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili late in the draft. One last Spurs-related item: There have been some pretty bad season-ending noshows over the years, but I can’t think of one quite like Houston eliminated in six by 39 (114-75) at home with the Spurs’ two best players, Leonard and Parker, sidelined. That’s about as epically disgraceful/bad as it gets. Anyone heard this one? A spelling teacher calls on the kid in the first row of his third-grade class and says, “Oliver, please come to the chalk board and spell ‘blowhard.’” Kid gets up, picks up the chalk and writes S-T-E-P-H-E-N A. S-M-I-T-H. The teacher looks at the kid and says, “Correct, you may sit down.” Finally, a very basketball-savvy friend of mine called from D.C. on Saturday. He’s now a Wizards fan, but the first thing he said, with an equal mix of awe and appreciation for what he’s doing, was, “Isaiah Thomas is unbelievable.” I agreed. What I don’t agree with is people who don’t think he’s a max contract guy, partly because of size. Forget the 50-point game and the lunacy that in a league that can fit 100 such contracts under the cap some team won’t ante up for a guy who just averaged 28 points a game. I say he is, based on the Bill Russell factor. That is, the Celtics were 22-32 the day he arrived in February 2014. From that point, they went 18-10 to shock almost everyone by making the playoffs. They won 48 last year and 53 this year when he was in the conversation for MVP. Bottom line, the winning started the day he arrived, and being the catalyst for winning is what smart GMs pay the big bucks for. Email Dave Long at

Stephen A Smith: ESPN yakker who apparently thinks raising the bellicosity level as he yammers on will somehow make folks with a hoop IQ over 100 believe he invented the NBA as he regularly acts like he did. Sam Jones: Another Celtic great lost in the haze of time, despite winning a second best ever 10 NBA titles. He was Paul Pierce before Paul Pierce, minus the rebounding. A volume scorer, with only Jerry West in his day as his equal as an end-of-the-game clutch shooter. The career numbers were held down by a backcourt with three other Famers. But after that thinned out, he averaged 25.6 per in 1965-66. I’ve got him seventh-best on the Cs’ alltime Top 10. Three Other Celtics Famers: Bob Cousy and Bill Sharman were the starters and the Jones boys Sam and KC were the reserves until Sharman retired in 1961, four years into Sam’s career. Johnny Vander Meer: 1930s-’40s Cincinnati Reds lefty hurler and only player in MLB history to throw consecutive no-hitters. It started June 11, 1938, with a no-no vs. the Boston Braves. No. 2 came four days later in the first night game played at Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field. That led to a start and win over the favored AL in the All-Star on his way to finishing 15-10. Overall, he had 16-, 17- and 18-win seasons in a 13-year career interrupted for two years by WWII, which finished at 119-121 with a 3.44 ERA.

10 NH-based podcasts for your listening pleasure


How to create your own show

By Kelly Sennott

One recent Thursday, a Derry Public Library study transformed into a recording studio for the 25th episode of Exeter children’s author Paul Durham’s podcast, Telling Lies to Children. For that show, Durham was scheduled to interview local middle-grade writer Erin E. Moulton, who also works at the library but was off-hours that morning. They tiptoed by the front desk, tucked themselves away in the tiny room and shut the door. Durham turned on his computer, pulled out his microphone and, before pressing record, asked how to pronounce her name. She clarified and offered some history to the “Moulton” surname, too, inadvertently giving Durham fodder to start his show. “I’m with Erin Moulton — Moulton meaning, ‘from the mule farm,’” Durham said, laughing. “Thanks for being on the show.” For the next 40 minutes, they talked about the magic of that first novel (hers, Flutter, came to her while she was standing on her head in a yoga pose), the struggle of rejection and the importance of remaining “hopelessly optimistic.” Podcasts — the name combines “iPod” and “broadcast” — are episodic audio series you can download onto your phone, computer or other devices. It’s kind of like the new blog, except you can do anything while enjoying one. Drive! Clean! Walk your dog! HIPPO | MAY 18 - 24, 2017 | PAGE 14

Cook! Pretend to work! (Just kidding, don’t actually do that.) And, now that the technology’s so inexpensive, they’re not that hard to create; you can record them anywhere — a closet, a basement, a library study room — and they can be about anything. “Frankly, anybody can do a podcast,” said Durham, who’d never even burned a CD before starting his show. “There are podcasts everywhere, on topics from politics to longform fiction.” If you haven’t caught the podcast bug yet, you’re in luck. Podcasts have become increasingly mainstream since they became a thing just over a decade ago, according to (which is Sept. 30, if you were wondering). Formats range from one-person casts to heavily-produced shows involving sound effects, interviews and lots of editing. There are even fictionalized podcasts. Some radio stations offer shows or segments of their shows as podcasts, which you can access via iTunes or on the radio station website, and some are run independently. Here are 10 New Hampshire-made podcasts tackling a variety of topics, from children’s literature to true crime, plus tips from these creators on how to put on your own show.

Kids’ literature

Podcast: Telling Lies to Children, a 30- to 45-minute show on children’s literature featuring authors and children’s lit experts Host: Paul Durham, an Exeter-based children’s author

New episodes: Once or twice a month Exeter author Paul Durham began recording Telling Lies to Children — aimed at adults who “live and breathe” children’s literature — last August. Each show starts with a bit from “In the Hall of the Mountain King,” composed by Edvard Grieg, and to date, Durham has interviewed fellow children’s authors, librarians, bookstore managers, literary agents and MFA directors, though episodes also include answers to readers’ questions and bring listeners to different places, like the Boston Public Library or the New Hampshire Children’s Librarians Fall Conference. Durham is fairly new to the children’s literature world; he published his first novel, The Luck Uglies, a tween fantasy story, in 2014, after having spent the earlier part of his career working as a lawyer. He began listening to podcasts about two years ago, one

of his favorites being The Joe Rogan Experience, hosted by comedian and retired martial artist Joe Rogan. “He started his podcast as a way to hang out with all his comedian friends. He’d just have them all come over to his house, and they’d talk, and it seemed like they were having a great time,” Durham said. He wanted to do with children’s literature what Rogan did with comedy. “I’m sort of an introvert, and I met some cool people when I got into the publishing world. … I’m not really good at keeping in touch, but I didn’t want to just lose track of everyone, as I’m prone to do with people over time,” Durham said. “Authors are not nearly as funny as comedians, of course, but I thought [creating a podcast] would be a fun way to keep in touch with authors I’m friendly with. … And if there are librarians and media specialists and teachers who want to listen in, maybe they’d get turned on to a new author.” He said Telling Lies to Children doesn’t sound as professional as an NPR podcast, but it’s more popular than he anticipated, averaging 180 unique listeners daily. And it did help him snag media interviews, and even small jobs — after his on-air interview with Cathryn Mercier, director of the Center for the Study of Children’s Literature at Simmons College, she invited him back to teach a workshop at the school. After recording, Durham said he spends about two hours editing and posting episodes online and various podcast sites, like iTunes

and He participates in other social media forms, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but thinks there’s a different sense of intimacy hearing someone talk off-the-cuff or in a casual podcast interview. Moulton thinks it’s a nice resource for aspiring writers as well. “It’s just talking about writing and the process of writing. And I think people like that, especially writers just starting out. They want to hear journey stories, and figure out how this works,” Moulton said. Find Telling Lies to Children at

It took three years. When they finished, their venture was chronicled in newspapers and magazines all over the state, and they even found an agent who tried to sell their story to a publishing

house — with no luck. So, in 2014, they launched the podcast, Fish Nerds, inspired by the nickname they earned on a segment of New Hampshire Chronicle. Their goal: to get as many people paying attention to them as possible, all over the world, and then revisit the book down the line. “We had failed to sell our book. Our publishing agent said we weren’t reaching outside New Hampshire enough,” Groves said via phone. “So with the podcast, New Hampshire was not our goal. Our goal was world domination!” Groves said he’d listened to NPR podcasts before but no independent shows. They had

no idea what they were doing. “Content-wise, our first shows were very funny, but the quality was terrible. We used the mikes on our computers, which is the worst thing you can do,” Groves said. Early episodes were hosted by both Kellam and Groves, but today Groves runs the podcast with about 16 other correspondents from all over the world — biologists, fishermen, chefs — who help produce tiny segments, from interviews to news bits, that Groves pastes in before releasing the show each week. Show topics include fishing tips, fish news, cooking fish, cultures impacted by fish, plus science and conservation issues involving fish. It even has a fish-themed book club under its umbrella (and now, publishing houses are sending them books to review). Today, the show sees 5,000 downloads a month, with more than 50,000 downloads total and 155 episodes. One of Groves’ favorites is “Mako My Day,” No. 43, which recorded his and Kellam’s mako shark fishing trip in Maine. “The cool thing about podcasts is there are no rules. I don’t have to do an hour-long show. I could do a 10-minute show. I could do a 6-minute show,” Groves said. “It gives you a lot of freedom.” Groves, who lives in Conway and used to work as a science teacher and at Amoskeag Fishways, is excited about a recent invitation to the Sustainable Seafood Festival at Virginia Beach, which occurs at the end of May. “I’m getting five vacation days because of my podcast! I get to hang out backstage in an aquarium with nerds like me. I’m really excited about it,” he said. Key to the Fish Nerds success is a high level of engagement with listeners and people in the fish industry. “We go to where our listeners are. If there’s a fishing event, then we go there and talk to people. We do a lot of social media and keep reaching out, inviting people to be part of our show,” said Groves, who keeps at it for the

Podcast: NH Knits, which is about 30 to 45 minutes and is all about knitting, with musings from the host plus interviews with sheep farmers and mill owners. Host: Corinne Tomlinson, a.k.a. Claire, an Upper Valley knitting enthusiast and owner of the online yarn shop, The Woolly Thistle New episodes: About twice a month Corinne Tomlinson started NH Knits almost three years ago. “I had been knitting for about three years at that point. I was obsessively reading blog posts and listening to knitting podcasts,” said Tomlinson, who goes by Claire on the podcast. “I was constantly talking to my husband about it, bless him, but he wasn’t really getting it.” So, in September 2014, she purchased a microphone at RadioShack, plugged it into her computer and hit record. “I was just talking to the wind. And it was strangely freeing, not talking to anybody, but just talking about what I wanted to talk about,” she said. “No one was saying, ‘Oh, enough already!’ I could just go and go and go. I had to edit it down a lot, but you learn that as you go.” Tomlinson learned to knit as a girl growing up in Scotland, but she stopped for some time to do other things — like get married, adopt children, move to the United States. But with all these life changes, she sometimes found herself very anxious and in need of a stress-reliever — which is why she turned back to knitting. “It helped — the ritual of the repetitive motion of knitting. And then you have something at the end of it!” Tomlinson said, adding that knitting is not just for old ladies anymore — you can find modern, beautiful designs online, and tailor them to fit your tastes. Tomlinson, who lives in the Upper Valley, didn’t think anyone would listen to her podcast, but she underestimated the knitting community, which has a strong online presence, full of knitters as obsessed as she, and today sees about 2,000 listeners per episode. She’s personally a big fan other knitting-

themed podcasts like The Knitmore Girls and Knitting Pipeline, plus, which is like a social media site and database of yarn patterns for knitters. Her episodes are typically 30 to 45 minutes, discussing what’s on her needles, what’s off her needles and what new designs have caught her eye. Some include interviews with New Hampshire and Vermont farmers and mill owners, and others feature her chickens (the “Coop Cast”) and updates on the Woolly Thistle, her online, Britainproduced yarn business that grew out of her podcast a year ago. “The U.K. has a long and solid history of yarn production. I grew up with sheep everywhere. … I’m getting [the yarn] from farmers or mills and can sometimes even identify the sheep it comes from, and people love that,” said Tomlinson. “For me, it’s about being part of a thriving community of knitters. And yes, my business came out of it, and the business is doing really well. I might not have thought to do it had I not been podcasting first.” Find NH Knits at

In the restaurant business?

Podcast: Restaurant Unstoppable, which is usually an hour and 20 minutes and includes interviews with restaurant owners on how to make it in the industry Host: Eric Cacciatore, a Seacoast hospitali-

ty enthusiast who’s worked in restaurants his whole life New episodes: Mondays and Thursdays Are you feeling unstoppable? This is the first question Eric Cacciatore asks restaurant owners and experts during interviews on Restaurant Unstoppable, a podcast he started almost four years ago. To date, the show comprises 330 episodes and has seen more than 300,000 total downloads, with about 3,000 per episode and 30,000 per month. His goal is to empower restaurant owners by sharing advice and success stories from fellow professionals. Cacciatore came up with the idea about four years ago in a Great Bay Community College marketing course, when his professor asked the class what podcasts they listened

to. Nobody raised a hand. Their homework assignment: start listening to three. When he was a kid, Cacciatore’s parents owned a restaurant, and Cacciatore continued to work in them throughout high school and college. Cacciatore was moved by personal growth and entrepreneurial podcasts but couldn’t find any specifically about the restaurant or hospitality industry. But he felt there should be; running a restaurant is hard. There’s so much more to it than making good food. “The entrepreneurial myth is that if you’re good at making pies, you should make a pie shop. But you need to consider all the other variables,” he said. Episodes span an hour and 20 minutes, and most contain interviews with successful restaurant professionals discussing things like how they broke into the industr, when they decided to make it a career and what they did in order to get where they are today. Cacciatore has interviewed people from all over the world but most have been people from the States, New Hampshire especially. Local featured personalities include Evan Mallett from Black Trumpet, Matt Louis from Moxy Restaurant, Evan Hennessey from Stages at One Washington and Edward Aloise from Republic Cafe. Restaurant Unstoppable‘s success has relied on its structure, honesty and mission. “The podcast is about the future of the industry, about sharing knowledge to make it

better, and to lift it up,” said Cacciatore, who at the time of his interview was preparing to pack up and take the podcast on the road, first to moderate a panel at the festival in Chicago in late May. “You need an overarching mission, a purpose, a vision of where you want to be. Start with the end in mind, where you want to go. Then figure out what you have to do to get there.” Find Restaurant Unstoppable at

Nick Mainella, founder of 10 Minute Jazz Lesson, was a big fan of podcasts before he began recording his own in his home studio in February 2016. Mainella, a Seacoast resident and professional saxophonist, spends a lot of time traveling, either to teach (at private residences or schools, like Timberlane Regional High School or Pinkerton Academy), or to perform, often with his band, The Soggy Po’Boys. Some of his favorites to listen to during the commute include Bill Burr’s Monday Morning Podcast, Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History and James Newcomb’s MusicPreneur. But while looking for new shows, he realized there weren’t many on music education, particularly jazz education. “If you go on YouTube and type in ‘jazz lesson,’ there will be about 2 million videos showing up,” said Mainella, who also has a background in audio engineering, and already owned most of the equipment he’d need for a podcast. “The advantage is that with a podcast, you can listen in your car. … I quickly realized there was a niche market for this kind of stuff, and I had people from all over the world listening to it, almost right from the get-go.” Episodes of 10 Minute Jazz Lesson usually span 10 to 15 minutes and involve jazz lessons and demonstrations, mostly on saxophone, sometimes piano. It’s challenging, giving instructions via audio recordings, as so much of teaching involves a dialogue between teacher and student, but he’s found lots of listeners, about 2,000 per episode. “I found the biggest demographic that listens to my show is a middle-aged adult student who is trying to play jazz as more of a hobby,” he said. “Those are the people who aren’t necessarily going to sign up and take a private lesson every week, but they’re still seeking a formal means of music education.” Because of the podcast, he’s picked up students worldwide, whom he teaches via video chat. “It’s a recent development in the music world — you don’t have to be in the same

place as the person you want to study with. I’ve been getting a lot of emails from people from all corners of the world. It’s been great to expand my network a little bit,” he said. Find 10 Minute Jazz Lesson at

Calling all Shakespeare nerds

Podcast: No Holds Bard, a pop culture podcast for Shakespeare nerds or people who want to learn about Shakespeare, typically between 30 and 60 minutes Hosts: Dan Beaulieu and Kevin Condardo New episodes: Every Tuesday More than 400 years have passed since Shakespeare’s death, and people still haven’t run out of things to say about the bard, his stories or his characters. Certainly, Dan Beaulieu and Kevin Condardo thought of ultra Shakespeare geeks like themselves when conceptualizing No Holds Bard, the Shakespeare-themed podcast that blossomed from Seven Stages Shakespeare Co. in Portsmouth, where Beaulieu is cofounder and artistic director, Condardo the managing director. But they also wanted it to be accessible for people who aren’t die-hard fanatics. “You don’t need to like Shakespeare to like the podcast. But hopefully you might like him more [after listening] than when you started,” Beaulieu said via phone. The duo met at UNH and had been arguing over bizarre Shakespeare-themed ideas

for more than a decade when they started casting at the suggestion of a friend. “As a company, we were trying to expand our programming, and we wanted to reach not just our audience on the Seacoast but a more global audience. This was a way we could collaborate with other companies when we joined the Shakespeare Theatre Association,” Beaulieu said. “One of our friends said to us that we don’t have faces for TV — we have faces for podcasts.” They spent six months devising No Holds Bard, and today, they package their show as “the Shakespeare podcast Shakespeare would have listened to.” The first episode was recorded in the spring of 2015. One of their inspirations was WEEI FM, Sports Radio 93.7, where they love listening about the Boston Red Sox; as a result, sports are frequently woven into the show. “AllShakespeare Girls Professional Baseball,” a recent episode, looks at which of Shakespeare’s female characters would be the most fearsome ball players. Most episodes are between 30 and 60 minutes and feature regular segments. “Word of the week” contains a strange or confusing Shakespearean word. “Homework” offers answers to Shakespeare homework questions, typically found online. Another segment answers questions that intersect Shakespeare with the present day. (Which Shakespeare character would be most excited about legalized same-sex marriage in the

United States? Which character would you most like to go on a date with?) Episodes also discuss news surrounding Shakespeare (a teacher was found guilty of attempting to seduce a 16-year-old student by buying her beer at an art museum and quoting Shakespeare!), and once a month, they produce a “So You’re Going to See Shakespeare” episode, a 30-minute crash course on a Shakespeare play, kind of like SparkNotes in audio form. On occasion, they’ve welcomed guests, like Mya Gosling, creator of Good Tickle Brain: A Mostly Shakespeare Webcomic. The podcast recently celebrated its 100th episode, and today has seen more than 28,000 total downloads in 2016, boasting almost 1,000 subscribers. For beginner podcasters, Beaulieu recommends investing in high-quality microphones and taking time to determine your show so that it’s different and new, even if it is about something that’s been talked about for centuries, like Shakespeare.

Michael Hauptly-Pierce and Seth Simonian have you covered on The Tap Handle Show. Both are professional beer-lovers. Hauptly-Pierce owns Lithermans Limited Brewery in Concord, which celebrates its first anniversary this spring, and Simonian is founder of Hop Head United, an organization dedicated to helping craft brewers better their marketing, and The Flight Center, a craft beer lounge in Nashua. Their podcast is all about beer and features interviews with brewers and beer folk, beer tastings and brewing advice. The Tap Handle Show started with Tim Roberts, founder of Success Through Referrals, which also has a podcast part of its business. Roberts felt there was a market for a regional craft beer podcast, and recruited Hauptly-Pierce to join him on the venture. The idea was for it to be like a comedy podcast that happened to be about beer, focused on consumers, not producers. The first show

happened in February 2014. “I did feel like we could do something different from what was being done. There are some national podcasts out there about beer. Some tend to be very sponsorship-heavy. Others are very information-heavy, and you have to be a black-belt beer geek to understand what’s going on,” said Hauptly-Pierce, who grew up near California’s wine country and was a home brewer for years before starting his business. “I try not to drown people in concepts, in things they’re not familiar with. We usually try to make it really accessible for people who don’t have any brewing experience.” Today, The Tap Handle Show is run by Hauptly-Pierce and Simonian (Roberts had to leave due to time constraints). Topics include manufacturing, distribution, beerrelated news, beer personalities and beer recommendations. One of Hauptly-Pierce’s favorite episodes is No. 35, featured John and Jen Kimmich, who run The Alchemist in Vermont, most famous for its Heady Topper. Hauptly-Pierce’s advice for beginners: “Make sure you have the ability to record sound as crystal clear as you can. People have very little patience for [bad] sound. And I think social media is invaluable. People who listen to podcasts are also people involved in social media as well,” he said. Find The Tap Handle Show at

Funny cast

For all your death questions

Podcast: Deathcast, which answers all kinds of questions you might have had about death Host: Kelsey Eriksson, a Hopkinton resident who used to work in the funeral industry New episodes: Every month or two We’re all going to die someday. It’s an uncomfortable truth. And because it’s so uncomfortable, lots of people avoid talking about death and all its mysteries — but everyone has questions. Hopkinton resident Kelsey Eriksson knows this because she used to work in the funeral industry, and people asked her death questions all the time. She decided to create the podcast after reading Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty, about the secretive culture of those who cared for the deceased. “I’ve always been fascinated by death and the death care industry. After reading more about it, I wanted to share some of that weirdness with other people,” Eriksson said via phone. She began her podcast, Deathcast, last summer, which to date comprises about 20 episodes and tackles topics like, how does cremation work, and what are the other options? Or, what’s the deal with the right to die debate? One episode referenced Carrie Fisher’s wish to be cremated and held in an urn that looked like a giant Prozac pill, which led to a discussion of what your ideal ash-storing container might look like. The show’s not meant to be grim but educational, with content created via research and on-air interviews. The hope is that, by talking about death, it helps muffle the fear or relieve the grieving. “A lot of people were interested in the idea of trying to take back their own ideas of how death should look after they die, or after their loved ones die,” said Eriksson, who encouraged listeners to email her feedback or questions. “You’ve got questions? That’s fine. We’ve all got questions about death. It’s a big mystery. I’m here to answer some of them.” The podcast, which sees about 8,000

Podcast: Here’s What Happened to Me, a funny podcast about being a comedian and a human being Hosts: Local comedians Mike Koutrobis and Kyle Crawford New episodes: Usually every two weeks Comedians were some of the first people to pick up on podcasting. Which shouldn’t be surprising, because according to local comedians Mike Koutrobis and Kyle Crawford, the medium is perfect for evolving jokes and developing followers. They began recording their podcast, Here’s What Happened to Me (a name inspired by a regular phrase Koutrobis features in his routines), in May 2015. They record almost every week, and their shows include interviews with other comedians, advice for prospective comedians, comedic rantings — about being a comedian, a human being — but most importantly, it acts as a platform for creating new material. “Sometimes, you have an idea but don’t know where to go with it. We both bring up topics we want to create jokes about, and then we talk about it, back and forth,” said Koutrobis, who lives in Methuen, Mass., but grew up in New Hampshire. Trying new jokes out on the air vs. in front of a crowd at an open mike night is also less nerve-wracking and time-consuming. “When you think about [a joke] or write about it on paper, it doesn’t equate to a stage performance,” said Crawford, who lives in Plaistow. “It’s hard to get on stage every night, but this gives us a comfortable outlet.” According to Koutrobis, “every comedian with a computer now has a podcast,” as they’re easy to record and get out there, particularly with, a place to post and find comedy-specific podcasts. Podcasts also make comedians more marketable; Koutrobis said agents in comedy clubs now look at social media followers and posts when booking acts, because they want to know their comedians have followings and a means of promoting their upcoming gigs. Koutrobis, who also works as a DJ, said it’s important to take the time to edit podcasts before posting them online. Make

sure the sound is professional, maybe with music or sound effects. Crawford said it’s a nice way to live out his dream of being in radio. “For me, the fantasy was always to be on the radio. I never thought I would be a comic. But podcasting seemed like a really easy way to go about that,” he said.

Love true crime or Serial?

Podcast: Crime Writers On..., a pop culture show about true crime from a crime writer’s perspective, usually an hour and 15 minutes Hosts: Real-life crime writers, including Rebecca Lavoie and Kevin Flynn, who are married, plus Toby Ball and Lara Bricker New episodes: Weekly When Kevin Flynn and Rebecca Lavoie started this podcast at the end of 2014, they called it Crime Writers on Serial, because it was structured as a discussion show about the mega-hit investigative journalist podcast Serial. But Crime Writers On … has morphed into broader conversation about true crime, journalism and pop culture, hosted by local true crime writers Lavoie and Flynn (who are married and who wrote Notes on a Killing and Our Little Secret together), Toby Ball (business manager at the Crimes Against Children Research Center and the Family Research Library at UNH) and Lara Bricker (New Hampshire-based newspaper reporter), plus occasional guests. Soon they began recording weekly and brought in popular TV shows like Making a Murderer and documentaries like The Staircase. Today the podcast boasts 7 million listeners. Lavoie, a digital director at New Hampshire Public Radio, said that once they

began recording in earnest, they worked strategically to build listener numbers via social media and other podcasters. “We reached out in a big way to try to get people as guests on the show who are from other podcasts. Then they would talk about our podcast on their show,” Lavoie said. Podcasts in general are growing enormously. According to Edison Research, in 2017, 112 million people listened to a podcast. Of them, 67 million listen monthly, 42 weekly. The average listener devours five shows a week. Flynn, a communications specialist who used to work as a television reporter, thinks these numbers have to do with the technological tools available now at low costs. “It’s like self-publishing. Sometimes you can just tell by looking at the cover, this is not anything you want to spend time on. But there are self-published books that make it big — like 50 Shades of Gray or The Martian,” Flynn said. “If we were trying to produce a TV show … it wouldn’t look the same as it would as in a studio. But with a podcast, and just a little bit of talent, you can put together a product that sounds exactly the same as one created by a national corporation. … There’s been a paradigm shift. Successful podcasts are being put together in basements.” The couple like podcasting so much, they started another, ... These Are Their Stories, inspired by the TV show Law & Order, and created a basement studio and company, Partners in Crime Media, which they look to expand by creating a network of independently produced podcasts. Even as their show becomes popular, and there’s potential to make more money from it, they stick at their day jobs — because who knows how long the hype will last? “Even M*A*S*H went off the air at some point. Dallas went off the air. This is entertainment. There is a lifespan to any show,” Flynn said. “We don’t know a year from now what our audience will be like. We’re just going to do it as long as we can.” Find Crime Writers On … at

ARTS Role of the artist

NH Philharmonic presents “Hindemith” By Kelly Sennott

The New Hampshire Philharmonic’s last concert of the season, “Hindemith,” features the Pinkerton Academy Choir at the Stockbridge Theatre on Saturday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 21, at 2 p.m. It is the last concert under Thomas Quigley, Pinkerton Academy’s fine arts director who retires this spring, and the first with the Phil’s new executive director, Cathy Kaplan. Music includes “Concerto for Two Flutes and Orchestra” by Albert Franz Doppler; John Rutter’s Requiem, performed with Pinkerton’s choir; and the concert’s showcase piece, “Mathis der Maler Symphonie” by Paul Hindemith. The latter contains segments from Hindemith’s opera, Mathis der Maler, which the composer wrote during the Nazi regime and which was inspired by real-life painter Matthias Grünewald. While the musicians play, audiences will see large replicas of Grünewald’s paintings on stage. “One of the remarkable things about the music is how you can clearly hear “Hindemith” Where: Stockbridge Theatre at Pinkerton Academy, 44 N. Main St., Derry When: Saturday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, May 21, at 2 p.m. Admission: $12 to $50, $10 for students Contact:

how Hindemith was clearly looking at these paintings and inspired by them to write music that reflects what the subject matter of the paintings is,” said the orchestra’s music director, Mark Latham, via phone. He thinks the message of the story — about the role of the artist in society — is relatable to all members of the orchestra, and any artist in general. “I think the artist in the U.S. struggles more just to make ends meet, and when they struggle … they question, is it all worth it? What is my contribution to my fellow humanity?” Latham said.

“But [as an artist] the way you can best serve humanity is to go back and do what you do best. … Without novels, without paintings, without music, life would be pretty barren.” The concert requires a 65-member orchestra, whose members range in age and experience, from teens to musicians who’ve been playing for 30 years. Kaplan is excited to work with the group, whose roots trace back to 1895. “The Philharmonic has survived, despite the fact that support for arts organizations has suffered since 2007. They have persevered because they believe

so strongly in their mission of bringing world-class music to the state,” said Kaplan, who was named executive director a couple weeks before this concert. Kaplan worked in marketing at the Concord Community Music School for 15 years, and in 2013 she studied at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education and earned a degree in Arts in Education. “One of the assignments we had for the end of the year was to write a short personal piece explaining or describing where we saw ourselves in five years. And the first line of my essay was, ‘In five years, I will be the executive director of an arts nonprofit in New Hampshire.’ That was four years ago. I had no idea what time would bring, but that’s been a goal of mine these past four years. And I’m thrilled the New Hampshire Philharmonic helped me realize [this goal],” she said. Kaplan’s first priorities are to focus on fundraising, reignite the high school concerto competition, fill seats and raise the profile of the orchestra by advancing its website and marketing plan. “In the last few days, when I’ve mentioned this new role to people, some of them said, ‘I haven’t heard about them in a while,’ or, ‘I didn’t know they were still around,’ which isn’t something I want to hear anymore!” she said. “It is a part-time position, but the goal will be to grow with fundraising and audience engagement and marketing … so it becomes a fulltime position with a staff.”

can Series,” he said, means to celebrate his race and portrays African-Americans looking beautiful and strong. For Florvil, it was strange, coming to New Hampshire in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement and observing shootings and police brutality from a place much less diverse than his hometown. “Moving here, it was like, OK, you’re definitely a minority. I stood out more,” said Florvil, who said he suddenly felt the need to be more cautious, trying not to look “intimidating” while walking down the street or shopping in the store. “I wanted to talk about race and some of the issues that have been going on in the media, especially the past few years I’ve been here. … There have been a lot of changes, and a lot of things that are being spoken about, and I felt like I wanted to touch upon them within my artwork.” Florvil’s inspirations include Thomas Blackshear and J.C. Leyendecker, and he describes the work as having an art nouveau style. He chose the medium because of its ease of use and because he felt becoming adept in the digital realm would make him more employable in commercial art fields after college.

• A little wild: The Wild Salamander Creative Arts Center, 30 Ash St., Hollis, has augmented its gallery to include a gift shop — the Wild Little Art Shop — featuring work by local artists and artisans, according to a recent press release. Wild Salamander, owned and directed by KC Morgan, is now in its fifth year and hosts adult and youth art classes, camps and workshops all year long. “The first version of the Wild Little Art Shop first opened in November of 2014 as a pop-up holiday shop. After that, folks kept asking why it wasn’t open year-round, so we followed their advice and went for it,” said co-owner and director KC Morgan. Her husband, co-owner and professional theatrical scene designer Charles Morgan, built shelving and countertops from reclaimed local wood, and the duo hired Karen Provost as the shop coordinator. Now, the entire downstairs of the building is devoted to local art. Hours for the shop are Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit or call 465-WILD. • Art Museum Day: Art Museum Day is Thursday, May 18, and the Currier Museum of Art, 150 Ash St., Manchester, celebrates with admission deals from then until Sunday, May 21. Art Museum Day, presented by the Association of Art Museum Directors, is celebrated by approximately 175 member museums, which offer admission deals or special programs and events to emphasize the importance of museums in our world.

New Love, Lost Love, Old Love,

• Marionette opera company remembered: The Mariposa Museum at 26 Main St., Peterborough, now hosts a bronze plaque recognizing the building as the site of the first and only marionette opera company in the United States. The New England Marionette Opera was founded by Edward R. Leach at the old Peterborough Baptist Church in 1992 and produced almost 650 full opera performances using marionettes, including La Bohème, Madame Butterfly, Verdi’s Macbeth, Carmen, The Barber of Seville, Porgy and Bess, Tosca, and Amahl and the Night Visitors, until the building was destroyed in a fire in 1999. The building has since been rebuilt and today houses the Mariposa Museum. “We still get visitors who reminisce about coming to performances by the marionettes,” said Karla Hostetler, executive director of the museum, in a press release. “The theater drew its audience from all over New England and we thought it was important that there be some visual acknowledgement that this was where they performed.” Visit • Join a band: The Manchester Community Music School is looking for individuals to join its summer band. The group is aimed at all musicians, from those who began playing two years ago, to those who haven’t touched their instruments since high school decades ago. The band, conducted by Ed Doyle, is made up of community members of all experiences, ages 10 years old to 80 years young. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings beginning June 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the music school, 2291 Elm St., Manchester. Throughout the summer, the band performs in a series of free concerts, with the first scheduled for Monday, June 29, at 6:30 p.m. at the Bedford Market Basket

Watch hockey games and lace up your own skates at the Tri-Town Ice Arena in Hooksett on Sunday, May 21, when Pink in the Rink returns to raise money for breast cancer research. The day will kick off with a youth hockey game from 11 a.m. to noon, featuring players from the New Hampshire Junior Monarchs roster, the Concord Capitals and other local youth hockey teams. Public ice skating will follow from 12:10 to 1:15 p.m., and visitors will have the option to either bring their own skates or rent them at the arena. The opening ceremony for the adult hockey game takes place at 1:45 p.m., and after that game, around 5:15 p.m., raffle drawings will begin. Event organizer and founder Jason Choiniere started the Pink in the Rink foundation after initially holding a fundraising game as a partnership with the Manchester Monarchs. “At the time, my best friend’s son’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and lost her life in 2013,” he said. “We did a memorial game for her and a couple of days later we started talking about wanting to do more to raise money.” Choiniere worked to get local Pink in the Rink 2017 When: Sunday, May 21, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (doors open at 10 a.m.) Where: Tri-Town Ice Arena, 311 W.

community members involved and held the first Pink in the Rink game independent of the Monarchs at the Tri-Town Ice Arena three years ago. More than $17,000 was raised through ticket sales, sponsorships and donations — more than five times the amount that had been raised from games with the Monarchs. “We were shocked with how much money we raised, because we weren’t expecting anything close to that, so then I said, ‘We need to keep doing this,’” he said. “We donated most of the money to the American Cancer Society, and then they started pushing what we were doing, and then we contacted the state and did all that we needed to do to become 501(c)(3) certified.”

• INTRO TO GUITAR WORKSHOP Let’s Play Music! returns for a morning of beginning guitar instruction, including jazz, classical, rock, pop and more. Sat., May 27, 10 a.m. Nesmith Library, 8 Fellows Road, Windham. Free and open to the public; registration is preferred. Visit or call 432-7154.

Last year’s event — which Choiniere said was the first to integrate public ice skating — raised close to $18,500. The goal for this year, he said, is to reach $20,000. All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society. “We’ve also gathered some people that have wanted to help out to create a board for the nonprofit, so we have seven people on the board with us now,” he said. “We’re all 100-percent volunteer and we do what we can to get the community involved as much as possible.” He said that can include everything from local cancer survivors appearing for ceremonial puck drops prior to the games, to organizations donating prizes to be won from the raffles.

4 Common Mistakes Consumers Make During The Loan Process You are so excited! You’ve found the home of your dreams and have been approved by your lender for the perfect mortgage. Unfortunately, there are things that can happen throughout the mortgage process that can turn your approval into a denial. Here are some items to remember to keep your mortgage approval in tact and get that home you’ve always wanted.

#1 DON’T Change Jobs: One of the primary factors in getting

approved for a mortgage is a borrowers ability to repay. Employment and income stability are direct components of this ability. Typically, lenders like to see that a borrower has been on the same job (or in the same line of work) for at least two years.

#2 DON’T Open New Debt: If new financing is obtained,

the lender will add that debt to what they have determined you can afford. Additional debt may risk your qualifying for the mortgage. In addition, opening new debt may reduce your credit score. So even if you are still able to qualify, you may find that the rate or loan costs you pay is higher simply because your credit score went down.

#3 KEEP Making Your Payments: Similar to #2, your credit

is monitored throughout the loan process. If the lender sees that you have been late on payments prior to closing, this will be a big red flag. Late payments will cause your credit score to go down. Another item that lenders review in determining your willingness to repay is any insufficient funds charges to your checking or savings accounts. Even with overdraft protection, these charges can be viewed by a lender the same as late payments on your credit report.

potential buyers!

#4 NO Shopping Sprees: When you tell your lender that you

have a certain amount of money to put down on the purchase of a new home and the lender has verified those funds, you must make sure that amount doesn’t decrease. If you purchase items to prepare for your move, you may find that the $10,000 you started with is now down to $5,000 and you do not have enough money to close on your new home.

Life happens and we all know that sometimes there will be circumstances that are out of our control. When these things happen, it is important to be open and honest with your lender. Your lender can set realistic expectations and help guide you through any hurdles you may experience. But, be aware of these four common mistakes and avoid them if at all possible to stay on the smooth road to homeownership!

Lawns? My philosophy is this: If it’s green and you can mow it, it’s a lawn. Dandelions? Who cares? Their blossoms are cheerful. Creeping Charlie, plantain? Pests, but not awful. And so on. I love a lawn with some biodiversity. But bare and thin spots I like to fill in or over-seed. Now is the time to do that. I recently called Paul Sachs of North Country Organics, manufacturer of Pro-Gro fertilizer and more, to talk about spring lawn care using organic products. Paul explained to me that all the New England states have laws against applying phosphate-containing fertilizer on lawns. Why? To minimize phosphate runoff into lakes, ponds and streams, thus reducing the growth of algae and other plants from running rampant and diminishing water quality. Paul explained that this law makes it technically illegal to fertilize your lawn — unless the middle number on your bag of fertilizer is “0.” Farmers who spread manure on the fields are exempt from this provision, and their fields are much more likely than you to cause run-off of phosphates. There is a loophole to the law, however. Paul explained that you are allowed to fertilize with phosphate-containing fertilizers if you are also spreading seed. Most lawns have some thin spots, or bare spots, so adding seed makes sense. And if you use an organic fertilizer like Pro-Gro (a 5-3-4 fertilizer) there is very little soluble phosphate anyway. Its phosphorus content comes from rock phosphate, bone meal and bone char — all of which are only minimally soluble, and not normally a problem. What is involved in over-seeding? Basically, you need to spread 3 to 5 pounds of seed per 1,000 square feet of lawn (roughly 30 feet by 33 feet). First, cut the lawn a bit shorter than you would otherwise. Then rake the lawn to remove the cut grass and any dead material that is on the lawn. You want seed to be in contact with the soil. If you have the time and energy, you can scuff up the soil in bare spots with a garden rake before spreading the seed. You can spread seed with a mechanical seeder, or, for small spots, just fling it using your hands. I buy a small truckload of compost each year for use on my gardens and lawns. It is loose and fluffy and is easy to distribute. After spreading some seed, I fling compost with a shovel over the seed, and then smooth it out using a lawn rake turned upside down. My goal is to spread a quarter to a half an inch of compost on the lawn, at least in the areas that look the worst. Compost is not necessarily rich in nitrogen — the driver of green growth — but it has organic matter, beneficial microorganisms and

micronutrients that would not be found in a chemical fertilizer. If you are really interested in a deep green lawn with lush growth, you could not only spread compost, but also some organic fertilizer — Paul recommends about 20 pounds of Pro-Gro per 1,000 square feet of lawn. Almost any store that sells seed will have something called “Conservation Mix.” That is what I use. A typical mix might have 35 percent creeping red fescue, 25 percent turf type tall fescue, 10 percent Kentucky bluegrass, 12 percent turf type perennial ryegrass, 15 percent annual ryegrass, 3 percent white clover. A few words about clover. When I was a kid back in the 1950s, we sometimes spent lazy afternoons rolling around on the lawn and looking for four-leaf clovers, said to guarantee good luck. But since then chemical companies have perfected “Weed-n-Feed” products that provide herbicides along with fertilizers to “ensure a perfect lawn.” Those products kill clover. So what have they done? They have declared clover a weed. Clover is not a weed. It is a beneficial plant that actually takes nitrogen from the atmosphere and fixes it in the soil, essentially giving you free fertilizer. The seeds are tiny, so a little in a mix goes a long way. If you get an organic fertilizer it has no herbicides, of course. And when you buy a bag of conservation mix, you may want to turn it upside down and shake it a little. Clover seeds tend to migrate toward the bottom of the bag, potentially giving an uneven distribution. A conservation mix has the advantage of biodiversity. If a pest or disease attacks one grass, another might not be affected. Kentucky bluegrass, for example, is lush and gorgeous, but susceptible to many diseases. A little is better than a lot in a mix. Unless your lawn is right on the edge of a stream or lake, you probably will not be causing any problems by fertilizing your lawn a little. Lawn is a great filter, and will generally prevent the migration of fertilizer into water bodies. And there are organic fertilizers that have no phosphates at all: North Country Organics has a 6-0-6 called Natural No-Phos. Read Henry’s twice-weekly blog at dailyuv. com/gardeningguy.

Dear Carrie, Looking at the tulips makes me happy, and I think of a warm spring day — meaning she did a nice job with the tulips. They look real and pleasant. The other side is that it is tough to decide a value unless your aunt was someone special and recognized in the artist industry. So many people who did pastels, watercolors, oils, etc. got no recognition but did some beautiful work that was only shared with their family and friends. To determine value you have to look at the quality of the work and how pleasing it is to the eye. With that said I would say this one in particular is soft, well done and very eyepleasing. An approximate value would be in the range of $100+. Framed it could even bring more to a person who loves the sub-

Using cruise control on downgrades won’t harm your engine Dear Car Talk: I like using cruise control, for a couple of reasons: It makes for more relaxed highway driving, and it improves fuel economy. However, By Ray Magliozzi I am concerned that I may be misusing it. Instead of riding or pumping the brakes when descending hills in the mountains, I click the “reduce speed” button in hopes that it will slow the car down. In some cases, it appears to work on long, not-so-steep downgrades. On steeper hills, it doesn’t seem to slow me down. Am I messing up my transmission by using my cruise control to slow the car? — David No, not at all. In traditional cruise-control systems, using the “reduce speed” button is just like backing your foot off the gas pedal. It’s harmless. Let’s say you’re driving on flat ground and your foot is on the gas pedal, keeping your speed at 65 mph. Then you come to a downhill grade, and you lift your foot halfway off the pedal. If the grade is steep enough, you’ll gain speed anyway, even without accel-

erating as heavily. But if the downhill grade is shallow, you very well might slow down. After all, there’s always wind resistance and tire friction trying to slow down your car, and it takes a pretty steep hill to add to your momentum at 65 mph. Anyway, that’s exactly what you’re doing when you reduce the speed setting on your cruise control. It’s like backing your foot off the gas. So you’re not doing any harm. If reducing the speed on your cruise control doesn’t slow you down, then you have to either downshift to a lower gear, or use your brakes to keep from gaining too much speed. There is a new type of cruise control that’s available on more and more cars now, and will be available on all cars at some point. It’s called “adaptive cruise control,” and it does use the brakes to slow you down. It uses some of the early elements of self-driving cars to keep you at a set distance from the car in front of you — even if that car slows down or stops. If you had it set to 65 mph and drove down a steep hill, it would use the brakes, if necessary, to keep you at about 65 mph.

So as soon as you do find a way to ruin your transmission, you can get rid of your current car and buy one with adaptive cruise control, David. Dear Car Talk: I have a 1999 Toyota Corolla with 213,000 miles on it. About six months ago, it started to wobble down the interstate. I could not get it to stay straight. I would have to “oversteer” to correct it and keep it in my lane. I got four brandnew tires and had them balanced (I needed tires anyway), then had a frontend alignment, and it still does it. It terrifies me to be on the interstate going 50 or more miles an hour with the car weaving on the road. Can you tell me what is wrong with it? Thanks. — Lucy It does sound like a classic alignment problem. But you’ve already had it aligned. So I have to start by scolding you for taking away my best answer! I think you know it’s not safe to drive, Lucy. But I want to reinforce that. You have to get it fixed before you go back out on the highway again for a leisurely Sunday weave. If you’re having trouble finding a

mechanic who can figure it out, try going to That’s a database of good mechanics personally recommended by people who read our column and listen to our radio show. You put in your ZIP code, and you get some honest, unbiased recommendations. One thing I would ask your mechanic to check is the steering coupling. Your steering column goes through the firewall into the engine compartment, and then it has to make a bend, down toward the steering rack. That coupling usually uses two universal joints. And sometimes, on older cars, one or both of them can seize up. That can make the steering feel very odd. It can make it hard to turn the wheels for a second, and then the steering can suddenly break free and get easier, causing you to “oversteer.” So have your mechanic check that first. If that’s not it, I’d probably check the alignment again, just to be sure the guys who say they aligned the car actually did it, and did it correctly. But whatever it is, Lucy, you have to get to the bottom of it before you end up at the bottom of something. Visit

Enjoy a Sunday walk on the streets of downtown Manchester, followed by music and food, at the 27th annual 5K Walk Against Hunger. The event will start and end at Veterans Memorial Park on Sunday, May 21, with registration beginning at 11 a.m. and the 5K walk kicking off at noon rain or shine. Walkers can participate either individually or as a team. The walk route will travel west from the park on Granite Street before turning north on Canal Street, east on West North Street and south on Chestnut Street back toward its starting point. Water will be provided to walkers at several intervals during the route and live music courtesy of DJ Dave Entertainment in New Hampshire will be featured at the park at the conclusion of the walk. At about 1 p.m., a lunch of sandwiches, hot dogs, fruit, beverages and more will be served at the park for all walkers. The walk is one of two signature annual fundraising events for the Manchester-based New Horizons for New Hampshire, a soup kitchen, food pantry and homeless shelter for adults that also operates Angie’s Shelter for Women on Manchester Street. Just under $116,000 was raised last year with nearly 1,000 participants, and development director Michelle Casale said the goal is to at least match that amount this year. “We actually have a school board member of the Manchester School District getting all of the schools [in the city] involved by

FOOD Eating Greek

Greek food festival returns to Nashua By Angie Sykeny

News from the local food scene

By Angie Sykeny

Seventeen hundred pounds of lamb, 5,500 stuffed grape leaves and 90 pans of baklava will be prepared for the annual Greek Food Festival hosted by Saint Philip Greek Orthodox Church in Nashua. This year’s festival takes place Friday, May 19, and Saturday, May 20, and will feature a full menu of authentic Greek entrees and pastries, as well as Greek music, dancing and vendors. “We usually serve anywhere from 6,000 to 8,000 people over the two days,” Jamie Pappas, festival co-chair, said. “Some people even come to both days.” Entrees will be offered a la carte or as dinner plates with rice, green beans and salad. The selection will include chicken, lamb, pastichio (Greek version of lasagna), dolmathes (stuffed grape leaves), spanakopita (savory spinach pie) and meatballs. Additionally, the menu will have gyros and a number of Greek pastries, such as baklava, galaktoboureko (custard pastry), finikia (cookie with nuts, cinnamon and honey), kourabiedes (shortbread cookie), kataifi (cheese pastry), koulourakia (sweet butter-based pastry), pumpkin pita (a Greek version of pumpkin pie made with phyllo dough) and tiropita (layered pastry with cheese and egg filling). Top sellers are typically the pastries, especially baklava, and the spanakopita.

• NH spicy foods win: Little Acre Gourmet Foods, a small gourmet specialty food business based in Dover, took home two prestigious awards at the 2017 Zest Fest Fiery Food Challenge in Irving, Texas: the Spicy Maple Roasted Peanuts won in the nut category, and the More Spicy Three Pepper Ketchup won in the ketchup category. “Winning two awards far exceeded our expectations,” co-owner Bill Ahrens said in a press release. “We are thrilled and honored to receive the Fiery Food Challenge awards!” For more information about Little Acre Gourmet Foods and to order its products, visit • Brew tours: Out of the Box Tours of Manchester will host a Sip of Southern New Hampshire Brew Tour on Friday, May 26, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The tour will make stops at three local breweries or distilleries and feature samples of up to 12 different beverages. It departs from and concludes at the Park and Ride bus terminal parking lot at 4 Symmes Drive in Londonderry. The cost is $55, and registration is required by Monday, May 22. Another Sip of Southern New Hampshire Brew Tour with different stops will be held on Saturday, July 8. For more information and to register, call 660-8427 or visit • Make and take wine: Incredibrew (112 Daniel Webster Highway, Nashua) will host a “Bottle of Red, Bottle of White” event on Thursday, May 25, at 6 p.m., featuring Australian Chardonnay (a tart, fruit-forward wine with flavors of vanilla, cloves and butterscotch) and 50 Looking for more food and drink fun?

“The spanakopita always goes the quickest,” Pappas said. “That’s the one that we have to increase [production for] every year or we run out.” Cooking operations began in January and will continue until the day of the festival. Most of the entree items are made in advance and frozen, while the pastries are made during the two to three weeks leading up to the festival. While there are recipe standards for Greek food, there are also many variations that originate from different regions of Greece. Most of the recipes featured at the festival are tried-and-true family recipes from church members. Pappas said the same recipes have been used for years, and there are no plans to change them. “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. We don’t like to fuss around once we have a good thing,” she said. “People like the way we’re cooking things and the amount of spices we use, and we don’t want to change that on

them.” While there are restaurants that serve some Greek specialties, there are no restaurants in Nashua dedicated solely to Greek cuisine, Pappas said, so the festival provides a unique opportunity for people to order from a full menu of authentic Greek cuisine. “People who like Greek food really look forward to this all year,” she said. “And so do the people who love ethnic food [in general] and want to try new things that they’ve never had.” At the end of the day, Pappas said, it may not be the food itself that’s so appealing, but rather the culture and spirit in which the food is prepared. “We take the time and the effort to make everything we sell, and there aren’t a lot of places anymore that make everything themselves,” she said. “We put a lot of love into it, and I think people recognize and appreciate that.”

Find out what’s cooking around Milford when the town’s annual tasting event, A Taste of Milford, returns on Friday, May 19. The event will feature 30 area restaurants, caterers and home food businesses serving food and drink samples at partnering shops and business storefronts in the downtown Milford Oval. “Not everyone knows about all of the great businesses and restaurants in Milford,” said Wendy Hunt, executive director of the Milford Improvement Team, which organizes the event. “These aren’t just chain restaurants. These are privately owned businesses and they all specialize in something different, so it’s a unique destination for dining and shopping.” A variety of food businesses will be represented, including Mexican, Italian and Chinese restaurants; classic American diners and pubs; bakeries and home bakers; markets and butcheries; cafes, ice cream shops, candy makers and more. Many serve samples of their most popular or trademark menu items. Others serve samples of new items and seek feedback from tasters to help them determine whether to add the items to their regular menus. Additionally, some participating restaurants will be giving out coupons or running specials for desserts or drinks at their main locations after the event. 48

Imagine eating dinner on a rooftop patio, surrounded by vertical gardens of colorful blooms, overlooking the heart of a scenic urban downtown. That’s one of the dining experiences you can have at Cabonnay, a new restaurant and wine bar opened last week in Manchester. The space features six dining areas, each with a unique atmosphere, plus an on-site wine emporium and integrated art gallery. The name Cabonnay represents the union of red wine and white wine — namely, cabernet and chardonnay — and is inspired, says owner Cornelis de Jong, by the idea of bringing the “essence of wine country” to the Granite State. “Wine country has the vineyards, the tasting rooms, the art and the gardens. They make the surrounding area for tourists very beautiful,” he said. “We wanted to a create a space with that environment. An experience. A place where you can come, have dinner and stay a while rather than being rushed out after 45 minutes.” Construction for the restaurant began in September of last year. De Jong and his team considered several locations before settling on the three-story, 9,000-squarefoot industrial building on Bridge Street. Formerly the “ugly duckling of town,” as de Jong calls it, the dilapidated unit was an unlikely choice, but it did have one redeeming quality. “An outside space was essential to our concept, and this building had the view over the bridge,” he said. “It was the worst of the lot, but in the weirdest way … we’re exactly where we need to be to execute our vision.” The first level of the building is home to the posh Bliss Bar and bronze Fantasy Dining room, which seats parties of two to four. On the second level, there’s the Conservatory Room, an intimate, elegant dining room with floral decor, designed for parties of four to six; and the Oasis Dining room, a secluded area for private events and parties of eight or more. The Atmosphere RoofDeck features 30 seats and vertical gardens along the wall with ornamental flowers and even some herbs and edible flowers Cabonnay

Finally, there’s the Chef’s Table, an exclusive dining experience for up to six people in the heart of the kitchen, where diners can interact with the chefs and watch them as they work. De Jong said sectioning the restaurant into several small dining areas makes for a more welcoming, personalized experience. “It’s structured like a house, and that’s how I approach it — like welcoming someone into a home,” he said. “I want people to feel like they’re special, not like they’re table number 22 out of 150.” Cabonnay’s cuisine is described as American contemporary, featuring farm-to-table appetizers, bar snacks, entrees and desserts. Half-poached lobster, a local cheese plate, roasted New York strip and a Grand Marnier soufflé are a few of the things you’ll find on the menu. Head chef Chris Viaud says that evolution and flexibility are the driving forces behind the menu, which will undergo “weekly tweaks and seasonal changes.” “You have to be able to adjust and adapt based on what the farmers have available,” he said. “I can utilize different [culinary] techniques from around the world while staying true to ingredients from around here and highlighting the freshest produce possible.” In addition to the wines, a rotating selection of 10 to 12 bottled craft beers and craft cocktails featuring a small but carefully curated selection of craft spirits is offered. While Cabonnay could be classified as fine dining, de Jong said it isn’t limited to full-course meals and special occasions. “Whether you come for a glass of wine and an appetizer or dessert, or you come for a lavish evening with several meal items and drinks,” he said, “if you want to relax and have quality food in a quality environment, we can do that for you.”

Sunday Brunch!

Connor Snarski says he didn’t find his job at the recently opened Granite Tapas & Cocktail Lounge (1461 Hooksett Road, Suite A6, Hooksett, 232-1421, find them on Facebook) — the job found him. It all started when a former classmate reached out to Snarski online and told him that her cousin’s new restaurant was looking for a chef. After meeting with the owners, he knew right away that it was a good fit, and he was offered the job as executive chef. Snarski got his start as a chef in high school, where he participated in a twoyear culinary program and worked in kitchens at local restaurants. Prior to Granite Tapas, Snarski cooked at Surf Restaurant in Nashua and was the sous chef at Hilton Garden Inn in Manchester.

We encourage [the food vendors] to try out new dishes, so there’s a variety,” Hunt said. “If they have a new dish or a specialty that they want to do, this is an opportunity for them to introduce it to more than 700 people.” Ballot boxes will be placed around the event where tasters can vote for their favorite samples to win in five categories: Best Beverage, Best Appetizer, Best Entree,

1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons baking powder ½ teaspoon salt Whip all ingredients into a medium bowl until smooth. Makes 10 to 12 small pancakes.

Best Dessert and Best Overall Presentation. Winners in each category will be awarded A Taste of Milford plaques. Hunt said that most people find themselves “stuffed” after eating about half of the samples, and that the best strategy for maneuvering the tasting is to map out beforehand a few different beverages, appetizers, entrees and desserts that you’d like to try. “From the really nice entrees all the way down to chicken wings, there’s something for everyone,” Hunt said.

Ideas from off the shelf

Turkey sausage and mushroom gratin For the past few months I’ve been steering clear of ground beef after I gave my entire family food poisoning. In its place, I’ve been using ground turkey for everything from meatballs to burgers and from lasagna to breakfast bakes. But I think this recipe is quickly making its way to the top of my favorites list. I stumbled across this recipe while searching for different recipes for turkey sausage. I had a brief delusion of trying to make my own before I realized I was never going to pull that off. As it turns out, this recipe is pretty pantry-friendly, but even better, it’s leftover-friendly. I used this recipe primarily for inspiration, working with what I had in my pantry and refrigerator. Using leftovers cut down the cooking time a bit as well, and the result was a hearty and satisfying meal my entire family loved. As a bonus, leftovers of this dish work well scrambled with eggs for breakfast too. From the pantry, I snagged some chicken broth, red potatoes and thyme. I substituted baby bella mushrooms for cremini Turkey sausage & mushroom gratin Recipe courtesy of Cooking Light 2 hot turkey Italian sausage links, casings removed 1 tablespoon butter 3 cups chopped onion 4 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms 1½ pounds red potatoes, coarsely chopped ½ teaspoon kosher salt ½ cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth Cooking spray ¾ cup shredded Swiss cheese 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme

mushrooms, and sharp cheddar cheese for Swiss. I had cooked Italian turkey sausage the night before, so instead of removing the casings and crumbling it up while cooking, I simply sliced the already cooked links into bite-sized pieces. The pre-seasoned sausage added a lot of flavor to this sparsely seasoned dish. I found I wanted more salt when the recipe was finished, and ended up salting my portion before eating. I opted for dried thyme instead of fresh and mixed it in before I baked the dish instead of sprinkling the fresh herb on top before serving. While I made quite a few modifications to the recipe, the bones stayed the same. At its core, this recipe is like a hash that works well for any meal of theBest day.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté sausage until browned, approximately 5 minutes, stirring to crumble. Remove sausage from pan and drain. Melt butter in pan and add the onions, cooking for about 4 minutes, followed by the mushrooms, cooking for approximately another 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Finally, add the potatoes and salt, sauté until browned. Stir the sausage back into the pan and add the chicken broth. Transfer potato mixture to a greased baking dish. Top with cheese and cover and bake for at least 30 minutes. Uncover and bake up to an additional 15 minutes or until top is browned.

No need to wait in line


NH’s beer scene understated and excellent


Every Sunday 10:30am-2:00pm

By Jeff Mucciarone


There are breweries in Vermont, Massachusetts and Maine where craft beer enthusiasts will wait in lines — sometimes very long lines — for their brew of choice. (Seriously, people do that.) There is so much off-the-charts-great craft beer easily accessible these days that I just don’t see how it’s worth it to wait in a long line so you can say you had a Heady Topper (but I’ll take one if you can get your hands on it). Personally, I enjoy the understated excellence of New Hampshire’s craft brew scene. I’d put any number of New Hampshire beers up against the trendiest and most waited-inline-for brews. And in New Hampshire, you don’t have to wait in line. I chatted with Scott Schaier of Brew NH, a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting and enhancing New Hampshire’s burgeoning brewing scene, and he agreed. “Accessibility is really a cool part of the New Hampshire brewing scene,” Schaier said. “If you go to Bissell Brothers [in Portland, Maine], you’re going to wait in line pretty much any day of the week. If you go to Stoneface [in Hampton] you can actually have lunch and pints and pick up a couple of six-packs of kickass IPA that would stand up to anything else in the region, and not feel improperly fleeced.” I’m not taking shots at places like Bissell Brothers, Alchemist or Tree House Brewing Co. There’s a reason why people wait in line for their beers — because their beers are delicious. I just think New Hampshire offers a unique blend of quality and accessibility. In the past five years, the Granite State saw its brewery scene expand from about 20 to about 70, with only two or three closings, Schaier said. Stoneface, as Schaier noted, is fantastic, as are Throwback Brewery in Hampton and Hooksett’s White Birch Brewing, both of which produce some really interesting brews — Throwback offers a “Maple Kissed Wheat Porter” and I would suggest tracking down any of White Birch’s “Small Batch” concoctions. I recently highlighted Great North Aleworks and Henniker Brewing, and I’d certainly put their IPA offerings up against the best of the best. Schaier noted Schilling Beer Co. in Littleton, which brews “progressive continental European-inspired beer,” as mak-

What’s in My Fridge


Country Pale Ale, Wachusett Brewing Co.: I’ve always felt like this beer is hugely underrated. Extremely easy to drink, not overly hopped, but remarkably flavorful. 112188

HIPPO | MAY 18 - 24, 2017 | PAGE 52

ing some of the most technically sound beers. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Time to explore. Here are a few beers to get you started. Am I saying these are the best beers in New Hampshire? No; I’m not authorized to make such proclamations. I do think, however, that these offerings indicate the quality and variety available in New Hampshire. Battle Axe IPA, Kelsen Brewing Co.: This is an especially easy-drinking 7.2-percent IPA. It has great hop flavor but minimal bitterness, and the finish has an interesting, somewhat juicy quality I cannot quite put my finger on. I would suggest this for someone who says he doesn’t like IPAs. NH Ale, 603 Brewery: IPAs and barrelaged brews get all the attention these days with their big, bold flavors and high alcohol contents. 603 Brewery’s NH Ale is not about that. This is a perfect beer for when you just want a beer — nice and crisp with a smooth, refreshing finish. I enjoyed a NH Ale right out of the can as I puttered around the yard recently. This would be perfect on a hot day. Also, my wife enthusiastically signed off, “Wow, now that’s good,” so there. Pig’s Ear Brown Ale, Woodstock Inn Brewery: I credit brown ales (Newcastle Brown Ale) as initially steering me in the direction of good beer. English brown ales tend to have a smooth, complex flavor without too much alcohol bite and though darker, without the same heft as a stout or porter. Pig’s Ear Brown Ale features a roasty, nutty flavor and a smooth finish. This is a good choice for someone looking for something different from today’s hop craze but who is a little hesitant to order a big, heavy stout. Milly’s Oatmeal Stout, Stark Brewing Co.: Rich and robust and flavorful and everything an oatmeal stout should be, this stout is wonderful. I think stouts intimidate people because they are heavy and filling. Traditional stouts, not imperial, high-alcohol behemoths, have a smoothness and a remarkable drinkability. Milly’s Oatmeal Stout is meant to be enjoyed and savored.

Fourth full-length from this Portland, Oregon, bliss-pop foursome, of whom Blur’s Alex James is a fan. This is a bit more upbeat than their previous records, which isn’t to say it’s an upbeat record, just one that’s less of a downer, though not less full of gravitas. Leadoff tune “Swans” lazes out of the gate with a half-hearted guitar arpeggio that makes you think of Sonic Youth, singer Nate Wey employing a Smashing Pumpkins half-whisper, but the whole thing slowly builds, louder and louder, into a shoegaze-as-math crescendo that’s quite effective and agreeably melodic, all as Wey’s voice starts wigging out in full peal. “Sunsets,” as upbeat a tune as ever they’ve done, is a brisk dance skip-along that blends Joy Division and The xx, if you can picture that, which you could with half an effort. The best part is this band’s non-reliance on gimmickry for the sake of such — these dudes are like early M83 with a tolerance for radio. A — Eric W. Saeger Tribulance, The Aftermath of Lies (self-released)

Arizona metal quartet whose stated aim is a big-deal blend that leans toward thrash, but only as it applies to the core of established headliners, from Judas Priest, et al. to the more modern leanings of the Sevendust/ Disturbed set. Making the sounds of Disturbed listenable to people who don’t watch wrestling was one thing that made me pick this out of the feed; my hope was that this might be a nu-metal act with musical panache to match their surprisingly palatable look (not that these guys do makeup and whatnot, but they’ve at least adopted a post-hip-hop/goth chic in their clothing that’s a huge improvement over all the other Baby Judas Priest bands, who must have access to a 1980s time machine in order to get all that spandex). Bottom line is that they get the job done, in spades: singer Michael Vidal turns from Halford to Hetfield on a dime over some pretty freaking respectable riffs that range from Sevendust to Megadeth, and in the meantime, none of it sucks. Mission accomplished, delighted to say. A — Eric W. Saeger

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases

• Occasionally my news does have some bright spots, such as the upcoming new album from Sacramento dancepunks !!! (more commonlly known as “Chik Chik Chik”), Shake the Shudder. This album is scheduled for release May 19, and, whoa, what’s this, these guys have been around for over 20 years? Where does the time go, like the time I voted their 2005 LP Myth Takes as album of year? I don’t believe it, but let’s go listen to what awesome stuff these dudes are into nowadays. The new single “The One 2” is way cool, a jumpy throb-glitch-throb beat, some ’90s-bubblegum elements — man, these guys are awesome. Did I ever mention these guys are awesome? • But then again, the Metacritic gremlins also like to bum me out. Take, for example One More Light, the new one from Linkin Park, also streeting on the 19th. What are these nu-metal rappers going to do now, combine rap with neo-emo and just call it “Barf,” or will they just do a bunch of Led Zeppelin covers, emostyle, with rap and skronk and then just go away forever (which would win my support)? Heh heh, nah, how bad could this possibly — OMG, go listen to the new single “Heavy” right now. No, seriously, stop what you’re doing and go listen to this train wreck. It’s like Britney Spears doing emo. There’s some trap in there — good lord, this may be the most cynical move these dingbats have ever made. Nice battle in the YouTube comments section between normal people (“haters”) and click-farm bots (“fans”). Ha ha, one guy says it’s a remix of Darude’s “Sandstorm.” That train’s never late, heh heh. • Fine, then. We’ll talk about the fast-approaching new Wavves album, You’re Welcome. You like Wavves right? OK, you at least know who they are, right? No? Wait, what, how are you supposed to be cool if you don’t know the hipster bands of the month, all 175 of them, and can recite all their pagan hipster lyrics? Hold everything, the title track is super cool, a just-plain-filthy cross between Zeppelin, Wilco and getting kicked in the head by a mule. Is that a backward sample of something off Physical Graffiti at the beginning, or what? Awesome. • Finally we have the new Erasure album, World Be Gone. That’s pretty exciting news to older Americans who dig 1980s synthpop, never even mind the fact that this is the 17th LP from LGBT hero Andy Bell, who, yes, is still the singing half of this duo, and yes, it’s an actual new album, not a bunch of Conway Twitty covers or whatever older bands do for quick money these days. The first single is “Love You To The Sky,” a simple dance-pop thing that seems kind of phoned-in, like a microwaved version of that old Dead or Alive single “You Spin Me Round.” It’s not awful, for what it is … oh, actually it’s fine. — Eric W.

Inspiring new home

MacGregor on moving to Concord and Wishbones By Kelly Sennott

Virginia MacGregor wrote Wishbones in a coffee shop near Wellington College in Berkshire, England, a place she found rich with inspiration. “I know some people who love the silence of a study, and I need that sometimes, but [when writing] I actually need to be surrounded by life,” MacGregor said via phone last week, just after putting her youngest daughter down for a nap. “If you sit in a coffee shop long enough, you see families, children, grandparents. You’ll overhear them talking about everyday things. I always have one ear open.” Since moving to Concord with her children and husband for his new theater job at St. Paul’s School this past July, she’s found new spots to write, like Live Juice, where she prefers the seat by the window overlooking Main Street, or the cafe at Gibson’s Bookstore, where she celebrates the release of her first young adult title, published by HarperCollins, on Tuesday, May 23, at 7 p.m. Her novels include What Milo Saw, The Astonishing Return of Norah Wells and Before I Was Yours, and like those, Wishbones is rooted in family and addresses social issues. The young adult novel follows a 14-year-old girl named Feather who loves to swim and is trying to save her obese mother, who hasn’t left the house in years, by helping her become healthy again. MacGregor, who grew up in Germany, France and England, was named after two women — Virginia Wade and Virginia Woolf — in the hopes she might aspire to writing or tennis greatness. After studying at Oxford, she taught at Wellington College, where she met her husband. About five years ago he encouraged her to fulfill her lifelong dream. “He said, ‘You should try doing it fulltime. You’ll regret not having given it a chance,’” she said. Her goal is to write one adult and one young adult book every year, which she knows sounds “bonkers,” but it helps when your partner’s career is invested in storytelling as well. “We’re very much in the storytelling business. … We both value the arts. When I’m reading a novel, he sees it as part of my job, instead of saying, ‘Why is she being indulgent and reading a novel?’” she said. “We have fantastic dinnertime conversations. He’s always the first to read my first draft and my last draft before it’s published.” Every one of MacGregor’s books is a mixture of experience, research and imag-

ination, she said, and for this one she interviewed doctors, diabetes specialists, social workers and a young student expert on the butterfly stroke, which her protagonist loves to swim. She also explored the psychology of food, which involved looking back at her time in high school, both as a student and as a teacher. “Having grown up attending a very academic girls’ school in Oxford, I went through a stage of eating very little, and being very driven,” said MacGregor, explaining it wasn’t just about image, but also perfection. “Quite a few of us were on the spectrum of having eating disorders. We were always comparing [ourselves] to each other.” MacGregor’s excited to share the story with her new friends in New Hampshire. It’s interesting, being an English woman living in the United States right now; having grown up in an age of political apathy, she finds it refreshing, how many young people around town seem to be politically engaged. “Here in the theater department, there are lots of kids from minority backgrounds or who are gay, and they were hit hard by the changing political scene. I think they feel strong about art, drama, books and storytelling, and I feel strong about it as well,” MacGregor said. “I think, more than ever, people are turning to the arts to understand the world they’re living in. I think we writers and dramatists have a unique role to play, in helping people navigate the world and understand each other’s points of view.”

Historical fiction — we all have an idea of what that’s like, right? A retelling of what happened along with some polite liberties used with regard to descriptions and dialog. Well Lincoln in the Bardo is not your father’s (or even grandfather’s) historical fiction. The narrative skips around. It’s jarringly disjointed, fitting together only after several of the small pieces are told. The perspective constantly changes. It’s a book that requires mental gymnastics of its readers. Some of you may like this approach; others will be frustrated. I loved it. Anyone who experiments with storytelling method and who still manages to tell an impactful and insightful tale is an ace in my book. Lincoln in the Bardo takes place in 1862, one year after the Civil War has begun. President Lincoln’s 11-year-old son is gravely ill. Despite assurances that he will recover, the boy dies. Lincoln is devastated and newspapers report that he regularly goes to the boy’s crypt to hold his son’s body. From that historical fact, Saunders proceeds to weave a story of a father-and-son relationship, division within a country, and loss that far exceeds the sum of its parts. Sure, it’s unlikely that Lincoln actually visited a spiritual purgatory realm (referred to in Tibetan terms as the bardo), but if such a place existed, it’s quite probable that Lincoln would have said and done what he did in this depiction. After all, loss of the things you love most causes the same unimaginable pain no matter where you are. Saunders uses a lot of references from the Civil War and includes quotes from the period. With a cast of characters hovering around 100 (but only a few main characters) it can be confusing, but stick with it. If you can suspend your critical thinking voice, the payoff is well worth it in the end. It helps to read this book from a removed perspective, absorb its entirety instead of focusing on details. It’s the essence that delivers the story. It’s the way I read French — can’t do it word for word, but if I take a step back and absorb the big picture, I can usually figure out what’s being said. Take this snippet of a conversation from the bardo: Tried to “see” his boy’s face. roger bevins iii Couldn’t hans vollman Tried to “hear” the boy’s laugh. roger bevins iii

Couldn’t. hans vollman Attempted to recall some particular incident involving the boy, in the hope this might — roger bevins iii The dialog leads us to where we need to go. Take note that because the cast of characters is large, it might be easier to digest it in the audio format. It would certainly be one way to keep all the “voices” separate. But while audio might be helpful, it’s certainly not necessary. As with all good books, a quiet room, perhaps a glass of wine and adequate lighting is all you really need to immerse and enjoy yourself with this one. Saunders is the author of eight books, including the story collections Pastoralia and Tenth of December, which was a finalist for the National Book Award. He received fellowships from the Lannan Foundation, the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Guggenheim Foundation. In 2006 he was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship. In 2013 he was awarded the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction and was included in Time’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. He’s not new to inventive methods of writing (check out his extensive library of short stories), nor is he new to the subject of the supernatural or paranormal. He definitely took a bold step (and, let’s face it, a big chance) with this book. It won’t be the book for everyone, but if you’re willing to take a step in the unknown and allow a fictional story to wash over you, then I assure you, you won’t be disappointed with Lincoln in the Bardo.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (PG-13)

A pre-king Arthur finds Excalibur in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, a very Guy Ritchie take on the Arthurian legend.

I feel I should mention at the outset that due to technical difficulties at the theater where I saw the movie, I missed the first five or so minutes of the movie. So maybe there was some combination of title cards and narration that made the movie magical. Maybe, but I doubt it. Nevertheless, I was able to get Arthur’s backstory, which is that once upon a time in post-Roman-ish England, King Uther (Eric Bana) and his queen (Poppy Delevingne) are killed by Uther’s brother Vortigern (Jude Law), who also steals his crown. Though Vortigern tries to kill baby Arthur, he gets away and floats, Mosesstyle, down the river to Londinium, where he is pulled out and taken care of by some ladies from the local brothel. In montage, we see Arthur grow up hard at the brothel, learning to fight, making money from odd jobs and petty crime and, after studying with the local kung fu master George (Tom Wu), protecting the ladies and generally becoming the big noise for his section of the city, protectionracket-wise. (Perhaps you’re thinking “I’m sorry, the kung fu what now?” but I’m going to suggest you just let that one ride because all things kung fu-related in this movie are silly fun.) Greasing the palms of local law enforcement and muscling money out of local traders with his buddies Back Lack (Neil Maskell) and Wet Stick (Kingsley Ben-Adir) — and occasionally Back Lack’s young son Blue (Bleu Landau), who I guess is learning the hooligan trade — Arthur has a good life going until he accidentally roughs up the wrong Vikings. The king’s men come for him and he winds up on a boat with a bunch of other men his age. Seems that, also Moses-style, all the young men of the kingdom are being rounded up. Only instead of being killed they’re just being branded after they try the sword stuck in a stone outside the castle. Once they can’t move it, they get their “not-Arthur” mark and are on their way (or maybe are enslaved, I’m not sure). Of course, Arthur finds that he can, in fact, wiggle sword from stone. Vortigern tries to execute him but men who have been waiting for the “lost king” — and a symbolic head to their “Never Vortigern” resistance — rescue him. Soon Arthur finds himself hiding out with a rag-tag group including Bedivere (Djimon Hounsou), Goosefat Bill (Aidan Gillen, a.k.a. Littlefinger) and a wizard lady called The Mage (Astrid Berges-Frisbey).

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

The least interesting part of this King Arthur story is anything to do with the Arthurian legend. All the sword-in-thestone/Lady of the Lake stuff is very incidental to what makes this movie moderately amusing, which, not surprisingly for a Guy Ritchie-directed movie, is guys with nearly indecipherable accents planning or describing some kind of crime or caper. Also, the fighting, some of the fighting is fun — the hand-to-hand combat, the guys running down grimy Londinium alleys. More Guy Ritchie-ing, less Arthuring is I guess where I come down. The legend, the sword — all this feels very subpar, like the ye olde England version of that spate of increasingly grade-B ancient Greeceand Rome-related movies that came out in the decade following The 300. But Hunnam is actually a fun action actor — and, yes, not hard on the eyes. I never watched Sons of Anarchy so I don’t have a deep background in his work, but from this I can see the makings of a solid action movie hero in the vein of Chris Hemsworth. The supporting characters and their anachronistic speech patterns are also fun. And, sure, Jude Law probably spends a little too much time in monologue mode, but Vortigern is a decent enough villain. For what it is, which is a middling action movie with fancy camera work but that doesn’t take itself too seriously, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword isn’t bad. For a movie released during blockbuster season, this weekend-on-the-couch basiccable fare is way out of its league. C+ Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, some suggestive content and brief strong language. Directed by Guy Ritchie with a screenplay by Joby Harold and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram (from a story by David Dobkin and Joby Harold, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is two hours and six minutes long and is distributed by Warner Bros.

Snatched (R)

Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer play a mother and daughter who are kidnapped while on vacation in Snatched, a weak lady-focused R-rated comedy.

Emily (Schumer) is in, as she might say, not a great place. Her loser boyfriend dumps her. She is fired. And — because they are either busy or still angry that she owes them money — none of her friends are willing to take her boyfriend’s ticket on her non-refundable vacation to Ecuador. Not wanting to go alone, Emily reluctantly asks her mother, Linda (Hawn), to come with her. Linda is decidedly not interested. Though, as Emily points out, she spends her days being scared of the world and over-parenting her grown son Jeffrey (Ike Barinholtz), Linda does not want any part of foreign travel. Emily wears her down and soon the ladies are in Ecuador, bickering and sharing a king bed. Though Linda is determined to spend the trip in the shade, reading a book, Emily finds a man to have some fun with. James (Tom Bateman) talks to her at the bar and is soon taking her to a local party. She excitedly drags Linda along for another excursion with James the next day but a miserable Linda is not at all surprised when the outing ends in a car crash and the women being kidnapped. The rest of the movie is the women trying to get home — and, occasionally, accidentally killing people — while still sniping at each other. When the U.S. government basically says they’re on their own until they reach a U.S. embassy, the women turn to Ruth (Wanda Sykes) and Barb (Joan Cusack) for help, two American tourists who are even more paranoid than Linda. And, from back home, Jeffrey attempts to pressure State Department employee Morgan Russell (Bashir Salahuddin) to deploy the A-Team to rescue

his mom and sister. There is, as Morgan points out, no A-Team, though this does not deter Jeffrey. The Morgan/Jeffrey scenes are a fairly solid mix of weirdness and reality and, oddly for this comedy about and clearly aimed at women, some of the funniest, truest-ringing moments in the movie. Jeffrey is a bundle of overplayed characteristics, but the movie is able to make his reactions to events feel genuine to what we know about his character. The same can not be said of Hawn’s and Schumer’s characters. Snatched feels very much lab-grown — take this synthetic “thirtysomething adult still acting like a late teen adolescent” and mix it with “sitcomy mom and daughter gripes” and pour in the artificial flavoring for situational kidnapping goofiness. This is not female-relationship comedy; it is the Female-Relationship Comedy Flavored Potato Chips. And much like, say, the gyro-flavored chips I bought a while back, the result is “kind of but no.” There are moments when I think this movie comes close to what it could have been. Linda, perhaps frustrated with her own life and scared to see her daughter settling into ruts herself, is far more critical than she realizes in her relationship with Emily. Emily, meanwhile, needs to grow the heck up. She responds with defensiveness and a bit of blame to even honest critiques of her choices. Or, to put it another way, they have a pretty believable mother-daughter relationship: fierce love but also constant needling. There is definitely something there, something that could even serve as a good basis for a mother-daughter buddy comedy of the R-rated variety. But this movie doesn’t develop the honest comedy nearly enough. Schumer has her moments but far too often the movie just leans on her character tics for humor. Hawn, meanwhile, is just shrill, much in that recent-era Diane Keaton way. The movie also couldn’t seem to figure out whether it wanted her to be meek or more worldly than her daughter realized. I suppose I’m not surprised by Snatched. I’d probably seen the trailer twice before I started to think that I was likely seeing all the funny scenes and the movie didn’t have much more to offer (and I was correct). What is disappointing about this movie is you can see glimpses — in scenes between Hawn and Schumer and Barinholtz and Salahuddin — of how much more weird, interesting and funny it could have been. C Rated R for crude sexual content, brief nudity and language throughout. Directed by Jonathan Levin and written by Katie Dippold, Snatched is an hour and 30 minutes long and is distributed by 20th Century Fox.

Oak Ridge Boys celebrate 50 years together at Tupelo show By Michael Witthaus

Waves of red, white and blue emanate from the phone as Richard Sterban describes what fans can expect when the Oak Ridge Boys take the stage at New Tupelo Music Hall. “The hits — ‘Elvira’ of course — and we’ll do a little gospel,” he said. “We’re patriotic guys, so we will do a few songs to honor the country that’s so important to us. … Most of all, it’s good country music; family entertainment, for Grandma and Grandpa all the way down to young kids.” Sterban is the group’s bass vocalist — the “oom papa mow mow” chorus on “Elvira” is his — and from an early age, he wanted nothing more than to sing low. Prior to joining the Oak Ridge Boys, he toured the Northeast gospel circuit, then joined JD Sumner & the Stamps. The vocal group backed Elvis Presley on tour, and contributed to the sessions for the King’s last hit single, “Burning Love.” Presley’s approach in the studio was unique. “Elvis really did not know what he was going to record — an A&R man played him song after song, most of which he did not like,” Sterban said. “After what seemed like an eternity, he played ‘Burning Love’ and wow! All of a sudden Elvis said, ‘That’s it!’ — and he wanted to record that song.” Sterban said the process “went down very, very easy,” though Presley was an “engineer’s nightmare. … He recorded like no one else I have ever seen; no isolation booth for him, no locked up in a little cubicle. He used Oak Ridge Boys Celebration Tour When: Saturday, May 20, 8 p.m. Where: New Tupelo Music Hall, 10 A Street, Derry Tickets: $55-$65 at

a handheld microphone and walked around the studio. ... He recorded like he sang live on stage and that’s how it came up on the record.” Sterban joined the Oak Ridge Boys in 1972, at a time when they were transitioning from gospel to country music, often to their fans’ consternation; mass walkouts during shows were common. It was a challenging time, and Sterban said Johnny Cash was a big reason the group carried on. Cash helped out financially, inviting the Oaks on tour, and often overpaying them; but Cash’s moral support meant more. One night after a show in Las Vegas. Cash summoned them to his hotel suite. “He told us, ‘This is going to be something, and I will support you, but you gotta believe in yourselves … give up, and you will never realize your dreams,’” Sterban said. “We walked out of that room with our heads held high. Johnny Cash thinks we’re going to make it, so we are going to make it. Sure enough, we found a way to do what he said [and] stay together.” In short order, they found a business leader, Jim Halsey, who is still their manager, and producer Ron Chancey, so integral to their success that he’s referred to as “the fifth Oak Ridge Boy.” Chancey found their first hit, “Y’all Come Back Saloon.” and later heard

a Texas honky-tonk band playing what would become their signature song, “Elvira” was recorded by several artists, but the Dallas Frazier-written song didn’t break through until the Oaks turned into what Sterban called “one of the largest-selling singles ever recorded in Nashville.” This happened due to Chancey’s special touches, like having Sterban’s bass refrain more out front than on Frazier’s original and an earlier Kenny Rogers version. In the studio, it felt like the smash that manager Halsey would go on about in pep talks. “He’d always tell us, you’re three minutes away from being a major act; by that he meant a hit single,” Sterban said. “We felt like we had something special in our hands, and we did, but didn’t realize how special until the first time we performed the song in person.” During a tour stop in Spokane, Washington, they dropped it into the middle of a set. “The place went crazy; they wouldn’t have been happier if we gave them a million dollars,” Sterban said. They played the song over and over; each time, the crowd begged to hear it again. “We called the record label and told them, we gotta get this thing out, and we did. To this very day ... you can count on the fact when we come to town, we are going to do ‘Elvira’ — it is the law. Even in church, we’ve done it.”

It is legal in China to sell electric “building shakers” whose primary purpose apparently is to wreak aural havoc on apartment-dwellers’ unreasonably noisy neighbors. Models sell for the equivalent of $11 to $58 each with a long pole to rest on the floor, extending ceiling height to an electric motor braced against the shared ceiling or wall and whose only function is to produce a continuous, thumping beat. found one avenger in Shaanxi province who, frustrated by his miscreant neighbor, turned on his shaker and then departed for the weekend. (It was unclear whether he faced legal or other repercussions.) • Mats Jarlstrom is a folk hero in Oregon for his extensive research critical of the short yellow light timed to the state’s redlight cameras, having taken his campaign to TV’s “60 Minutes” and been invited to a transportation engineers’ convention. In January, Oregon’s agency that regulates engineers imposed a $500 fine on Jarlstrom for “practicing engineering” without a state license. (The agency, in fact, wrote that simply using the phrase “I am an engineer” is illegal without a license, even though Jarlstrom has a degree in engineering and worked as an airplane camera mechanic.) He is suing to overturn the fine. • Last year, surgeons at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), for only the second time in history, removed a tumor “sitting” on the peanut-sized heart of a fetus while the heart was still inside the mother’s womb in essence successfully operating on two patients simultaneously. The Uruguayan mother said her initial reaction upon referral to CHOP’s surgeons was to “start laughing, like what, they do that?” (The baby’s December birth revealed that the tumor had grown back and had to be removed again, except this time, through “ordinary” heart surgery.) • The word “Isis” arrived in Western dialogue only after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, as an acronym for the Islamic State, and the Swahili word “Harambe” was known to almost no one until May 2016 when the gorilla “Harambe” (named via a local contest) was put down by a Cincinnati zoo worker after it had dragged an adventurous 3-year-old boy away. In April, a Twitter user and the website Daily Dot happened upon a 19-year-old California restaurant hostess named Isis Harambe Spjut and verified with state offices that a driver’s license (likely backed by a birth certificate) had been issued to her. (“Spjut” is a Scandinavian name.)

News you can use

Earn $17,500 for two months’ “work” doing nothing at all! France’s space med-

icine facility near Toulouse is offering 24 openings, paying 16,000 euros each, for people simply to lie in bed continuously for two weeks so it can study the effects of virtual weightlessness. The institute is serious about merely lying there: All bodily functions must be accomplished while keeping at least one shoulder on the bed.

Government in action

“can knock on my door and say, ‘Guess what? You’re not an American citizen after all’?” The government lawyer stood firm. (The Supreme Court decision on the law’s constitutionality is expected in June.)

Wait, what?

• Emily Piper and her husband went to court in January in Spokane, Washington, to file for a formal restraining order against a boy who is in kindergarten. Piper said the tyke had been relentlessly hassling their daughter (trying to kiss her) and that Balboa Elementary School officials seem unable to stop him. • A private plane crashed on take-off 150 feet from the runway at Williston (Florida) Municipal Airport on April 15, killing all four on board, but despite more than a dozen planes having flown out of the same airport later that day, no one noticed the crash site until it caught the eye of a pilot the next afternoon.

Sidewalk Wars: (1) Thirty-four residents of State Street in Brooklyn, New York, pay a tax of more than $1,000 a year for the privilege of sitting on their front stoops (a pastime which, to the rest of New York City, seems an inalienable right). (The property developer had made a side deal with the city to allow the tax in exchange for approving an architectural adjustment.) (2) The town of Conegliano, Italy, collects local taxes on “sidewalk shadows” that it applies to cafes or businesses with awnings, but also to stores with a single overhanging sign that very slightly “blocks” sun. Shop owners told reporters the tax felt like Mafia Least competent criminals “protection” money.
