Summer Guide 2017
Sure, it was looking a bit dicy there for a while with snow in April, but summer is officially here (and by officially I mean we’re publishing our annual summer guide, so it’s official). Yes, it’s almost a month before summer technically starts, but making the most of summer takes planning. We’re here to help with that planning. We have found hundreds, maybe thousands, of things you can do this summer to really get out and enjoy it. Our annual summer guide is a list that our reporters and editors dig up of some of the more interesting things that you can go out and do. It spans activities from hiking to taking a class on how to make sangria. You can attend Nashua’s Taste of Downtown or CASA’s food truck rodeo at McIntyre in Manchester. You can go to the Hollis Strawberry festival or go see In the Company of Gertrude Stein and Thornton Wilder at the Hatbox Theatre in Concord, if you’re into that kind of thing. Or you can take a trip to the sixth annual Arts on the Green in New London and stop in for a beer at the Flying Goose, if you’re into that kind of thing. I guess what I’m trying to say here is that there is no excuse to stay in this summer. Get out and enjoy where we live. It’s really quite wonderful. The full cover story starts on page 12 — hold on to it.

Love thy neighbor
America is continuing to self-segregate — politically. And since New Hampshire, the cradle of American presidential politics, is a swing state, we’re still politically diverse. In some states one party or another gets 70 percent of the vote. Another reason we’re a nice place to live. To me the larger issue is that we seem to be unable to separate our enjoyment and support of people from their political and beer choices. So your friend likes Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton and you just can’t understand how they could like such a louse. Are we really to the point where who you vote for is a moral failing? I sure hope not. Would you shun someone because they had bad choice of clothing, romantic partners or sports teams? Maybe. But usually not. Perhaps, as some say, we’re losing our shared vision of what America is. Maybe the internet plays a role in that by allowing us to wrap ourselves in one point of view and see no other. Whatever the cause, knock it off. It’s bad for you and bad for America. Reach across the aisle and make a friend with someone who supports a candidate you think is an idiot or raves about wheat beers. It’s freeing. And really folks, America will survive.

The American Civil Liberties Union is requesting emails and documentation related to Secretary of State Bill Gardner’s role in President Trump’s recently launched presidential commission on election integrity, NHPR reported. The Trump administration asked Gardner to participate in the commission. Trump has made unsubstantiated claims of rampant voter fraud in states like New Hampshire in the 2016 election, resulting ostensibly in his loss in the state, something Gardner has repeatedly refuted. The ACLU submitted similar requests in Kansas and Maine and is also asking for any proposed changes to election law being floated.

The turkey hunting season ends after May 31.
Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway spoke to a group of New Hampshire Republicans in Nashua on Thursday, May 18.

There were an estimated 150 people in attendance, according to the story.

Tick, tick, boom
Black-legged tick carrying even more diseases By Ryan Lessard
Though tick numbers may have been threatened by dry weather conditions from last summer, their arsenal of pathogens has expanded with a serious virus called Powassan. According to Alan Eaton, an entomologist with the UNH Cooperative Extension, tick populations likely suffered high mortality last summer during extreme drought conditions in southern parts of the state. But ticks are still around. Earlier this month, Eaton searched for a few black-legged ticks for a demonstration he was giving later that afternoon and found a handful in a short span of time. Black-legged ticks, also called deer ticks, are the kind that transmit Lyme disease, among other diseases. Adult ticks, unlike mosquitos, aren’t restricted by seasonal breeding cycles. They hibernate under snow cover during the winter but emerge to find a blood meal whenever that snow cover melts away and air temperatures rise above 40 degrees. And before the recent drop in population, tick numbers were in a period of rapid growth. So, Eaton said, the recent drought may have just reduced populations back down to normal. “Populations … are close to what would be normal,” Eaton said. “They’re out there.” And this time of year is the high-risk time for tick bites, according to Eaton. Depending on how hot and dry it gets, the height of tick season tends to last until about mid-July.

While Lyme disease is still the No. 1 concern among public health officials, emerging diseases are starting to appear in New Hampshire and other New England states. “Speaking nationally, it seems like every couple of years something new comes along in regard to tick-borne disease,” said state public health veterinarian Abby Mathewson. Lyme tops the list of tick-borne diseases of concern, followed closely by anaplasmosis, a bacterial disease, and babesiosis, a microscopic parasite. Mathewson said reported cases of both anaplasmosis and babesiosis are increasing each year in New Hampshire. That follows a similar national trend. Other diseases that are close cousins to Lyme, such as borrelia mayonii and borrelia miyamotoi, are starting to appear in other states, including in the Northeast, but have yet to be reported in New Hampshire. The latest addition to the tick arsenal in the state, which presents the greatest concern
for public health officials, is Powassan virus, named after Powassan, Ontario, where the disease was first identified decades ago. Mathewson said Powassan causes symptoms similar to serious mosquito-carried diseases such as Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile virus. Those who become seriously ill from Powassan can get an infection of the brain’s membrane (meningitis) or of the brain itself (encephalitis). There have been two reported cases in the state so far — one in 2013 and another in 2016. Of those who experience serious symptoms, 10 percent succumb to the disease and about 50 percent exhibit permanent neurological damage, Mathewson said. “Symptoms related to Powassan usually begin with onset of acute fever and they include headache, muscle weakness, nausea, vomiting, you can have a stiff neck, fatigue, confusion, paralysis, speech difficulties, memory loss,” Mathewson said. “It can be very, very severe or it can be mild.” Right now, there’s much that remains unknown about the disease, such as how it manifests in mild forms and how prevalent it is among tick populations. Mathewson said there are two strains of Powassan. One exists in woodchucks and skunks and both animals have their own species of ticks that feed on them, neither of which bite humans. The second strain of Powassan, which is sometimes referred to as deer tick virus, exists in white-footed mice and is transmitted by black-legged ticks. That’s the same reservoir species that transmits Lyme, anaplasmosis and babesiosis. Unlike Lyme, which requires a tick to be attached to a person for 36 to 48 hours to transmit according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Powassan can be transmitted in as little as 15 minutes. Prevention strategies Entomologist Alan Eaton suggests performing regular body checks for ticks, especially after walking in the woods or grassy areas. Use repellents that use DEET and throw clothes in the drier and run it on high after a hike. If you find a tick attached, the CDC advises grabbing as close to the skin as possible with fine-tipped tweezers and pulling upward with steady pressure. Do not twist or jerk. If mouth parts remain on the skin, pull those off as well with the tweezers. Then, thoroughly clean the bite area with a sanitizer like rubbing alcohol, soap or an iodine scrub. To kill the tick, do not crush it in your fingers. Instead, drown it in alcohol in a sealed bag or container before disposing of it, or flush it down the toilet.

NEWS & NOTES Q&A
Local man believes he solved 46-year-old mystery Consulting engineer Bill Rollins of New Boston recently wrote the book The Elusive D.B. Cooper, How He Escapes, which presents a new theory about D.B. Cooper, the mystery man who hijacked a plane and walked away with $200,000.
What made you start to investigate this case on your own? The Seattle FBI … announced they were closing the case. [It did so in July 2016.] And I got kind of upset. I guess I always thought sooner or later they would find the man and now it seemed like we would never find him. So I started looking at all the evidence online and reading all the different stories and so forth. But one thing, in particular, stuck out. And that was there was very little evidence that this man left behind. … The interesting thing was he did leave a clip-on tie behind. … Back in 1971, authorities weren’t using things like electron microscopes and DNA in their forensics. … The tie didn’t have much value, but in recent years a group of scientists have looked at some of the particles on Cooper’s tie and found metal particles in the tie; stainless steel, brass, aluminum, even titanium, [which] suggests that he was probably an engineer in a metals working facility. I took a great interest in that because that’s pretty much been my background for the past 35 years.

First of all, can you remind our readers what happened in the famous D.B. Cooper case in 1971? He’s described as a non-descript man, somebody who wouldn’t be noticed. [He] walked up to the ticket counter in Portland, Oregon, on Nov. 24, 1971, bought a one-way ticket to Seattle. Once he was on the plane and it departed the runway, he told the stewardess he had a bomb in his briefcase and he was hijacking the plane. He demanded $200,000 in cash and four parachutes. When they landed in Seattle, they exchanged those items for the 36 passengers and they disembarked, set course for Reno, Nevada, and somewhere over southwestern Washington he jumped out of the plane with the money and has never been seen or heard from again.
What are the pieces of evidence that you used to write your book? The only thing that made sense was that something tragic happened to this man. … He’s at the end of his rope. I didn’t know who he was and I didn’t know what had hapWHAT ARE YOU REALLY INTO RIGHT NOW? Maybe because it’s the Pacific Northwest and maybe it’s because the chief investigator is named Dale Bartholomew Cooper … the Twin Peaks show from 25 years ago.
pened. I only knew he had suffered some kind of a tragic incident. … I imagine myself in his shoes, in his deep despair, looking to get revenge, because he admits to one of the stewardesses when she asked him, ‘Do you have Bill Rollins a grudge against our airline?’ and he laughs and says, “I don’t have a grudge against your airline. I just have a grudge.” So it became obvious that his motivation was not money. This wasn’t theft. It was an act of revenge. … I finally, after hours of study, research and deliberation, came up with a solution, a way to actually hijack the plane and get away and leave no evidence. In your book you don’t name a suspect, but you later found an individual who you think is the real D.B. Cooper. What led you to believe you had your man? After I wrote the book and realized that this man escaped and had a profile that said this man was not a criminal, just an everyday person who had suffered a tragic event, I started looking at tragic events in that time period. … And I finally found an incident and dug deeper into it and finally found a man who fit the profile and as I kept researching, I found more and more about him that just, let’s say, agreed with what we know about D.B. Cooper. A lot seems to be based on circumstantial evidence. How would we know for sure? The next step, and I’m trying to work on that now, would be a DNA test. The tie that was left behind on the airplane has DNA from three male donors and nobody knows who those donors are. Their DNA is not in any database. … The final proof would be finding the money and the parachute. There have been plenty of theories about the true identity of D.B. Cooper over the years. What makes yours different? Most of the people think that this incident was all around money. … What I saw was this is not a theft, this is revenge and the grudge was the main motivation for this whole act. … As I looked at this, I started to realize that this man is a regular man who’s lost family who was near and dear to him and basically is doing something that he otherwise might never do. … I do have to write a sequel. … There are still some things that need to come together so I have everything I need to finish the second book.— Ryan Lessard

WMUR reported Hooksett Fire Chief James Burkush said the recent rescue of five kayakers on the Merrimack River highlights the dangers of deceptively fast currents. Water levels are higher due to recent wet weather. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Earlier this month, a woman drowned while swimming in the Pemigewasset River in Lincoln; police recovered her body the following afternoon on Thursday, May 18, according to multiple reports.
Thin farmers market crowds Some farmers markets reported a 50-percent drop in shoppers last year. New Hampshire Farmers Market Association President Wendy Stevens said in a Concord Monitor story that the association is partnering with the Department of Agriculture and the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension to survey why customers are shopping less at the state’s 68 farmers markets. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Despite temperature fluctuations, it’s been a good spring for farmers, and these markets should be full of delicious crops — particularly cold-weather crops like lettuces, spinach and broccoli, according to the story.

Bobcats are back Bobcat numbers in New Hampshire are rising. According to a recent article by the Associated Press, the cats, as large as medium-sized dogs, are making their homes in small towns and suburbs, and have turned up in places like Manchester. A University of New Hampshire/New Hampshire Fish and Game survey estimated their population in 2013 at 1,400. Wildlife ecologist John Litvaitis, who conducted research on the subject at the University of New Hampshire, said in the story they’re as abundant as they were 100 years ago, if not more. QOL Score: +1 Comment: There are downsides to having more bobcats around; the story described them as “the next urban pest,” particularly for residents with small pets or farm animals like chickens.

Being run out harshly should make them work harder to not let it happen again. If you needed more proof about this team — which I don’t, after Sunday night, how can you not bet on that happening. Marcus Smart: He’s not as good as him. At least not yet. But Smart reminds me of Dennis Johnson. You’re never quite sure how he does it in the big moment, but he does. He doesn’t get a lot of rebounds, but he gets the rebound. After laying enough bricks to put an addition onto his house he plays big on Monday night off the bench and then somehow it’s nothing but net as he goes 7-10 from behind the line filling in for Isaiah on Sunday. It’s why short of getting Anthony Davis back in the inevitable trade this summer, I’m not giving him up for anyone. Euphoria over the No. 1 Pick: Don’t want to burst your bubble, but in the 57 drafts since 1960 the first overall player picked has turned out to be the best player in that draft just 38 percent of the time. And with a draft record that has let the likes of DeAndre Jordan, Jimmy Butler, Draymond Green and Isaiah Thomas (twice) go by as Danny Ainge took JaJuan Johnson, JR Giddens and Fab Melo it’s no slam dunk they get the best guy at the end of June. Should They Trade the Pick: I’m not opposed to it, depending on who comes back. But, given how indestructible LeBron looks at the moment, that says keep it because they have time to develop him into the star they need. Since it’ll probably be Fultz, they get depth at guard and scoring off the bench next year and Bradley’s replacement when he’s the odd man out at contract time for him and Isaiah in two years. That is if he’s not traded this summer, which is my expectation. Plus, to leave on a high note, the good news is Danny’s last two — Jaylon Brown and Smart — have been good picks, so maybe he’s on a roll. Email Dave Long at dlong@hippopress. com.

iah wouldn’t play, who wasn’t thinking of heading to Vegas to put the house down on a sweep? When they went down 16 at the half, it was hey, maybe I ought to throw the car in on that bet too! But then with LeBron’s head clearly elsewhere, the magic happened. A stunning comeback started to kick in behind, of all things, the long-range shooting of Marcus Smart. First it was no, this is just a little run that will get squashed. Then it was, can it really be? I still thought LeBron would step into the phone booth to save Metropolis after Jonas Jerebko gave them the lead with 30 seconds left. But then Avery Bradley finished them off at 111-108 with a three as time expired to make my dumbfoundedness over the fact that the C’s had somehow cut the series lead to 2-1 amid all the bad vibes even more profound than when the Pats were coming back on the Falcons in SB-51. True, it was just one win and they need four. But like the Jets in SB III, the Immaculate Reception in Pittsburgh, our hockey team at Lake Placid and the Sox and Yanks in ’04, the undermanned and down by 16 at half Celtics showed, even when everyone thinks you have no chance, you still have to be counted out at 10 before the fight is over. And at 11 on Sunday night, they were still standing. Welcome to what makes sports so great. Where you can ride an emotional rollercoaster for an entire week and still get an ending you just don’t expect. Wow! Here are a few more thoughts on the transcendent week: The Cleveland Gap: Assuming a miracle doesn’t play out, it still looks fairly big. Which leads to the somber realization that Danny is really building to challenge when the LBJ slides happens. However, such a gap has benefits, believe it or not. Young teams that have accomplished most of their goals, as this one has, can have a way of being a little too self-satisfied, which leads to a performance hangover the next year.

That was quite a week for your Boston Celtics and Celtic Nation. First there was nervous tension as all got ready for Game 7 of their playoff match-up with the Washington Wizards. Anxiousness came next during the early stages of the game, which gave way to slowly building confidence as the Cs took control in the fourth quarter, followed by “Yes!” – elation when they pulled away to win 125-115. After 24 hours of talking about facing LeBron and company in the Eastern Conference Finals came a fist-pump of jubilation, when the ping pong balls fell their way for once to let them pick first in June’s NBA draft. That so captured everyone’s imagination it completely overshadowed Game 1 with Cleveland, which began that night. Folks spent the day instead talking about Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball and his dingbat father, LaVar. Then as they finally focused on the game, there was anticipation for stealing Game 1 before the Cavs worked off the rust from a nine-day lay-off. However, once it arrived at 8:30 p.m. in the east, reality set in as the local high was taken down several pegs by a dominant LeBron James performance, though that didn’t ruin the mood. Many wrote it off as their not being ready to play with such a quick turnaround after the emotions were sapped in Game 7. But then came a complete, total and historic annihilation on Friday in what can only be described as an epic beatdown. That gave way to the searing knowledge (a) of how wide the gap is between them and the Cavs and (b) that they were going to get swept. Then on Sunday came the most surprising emotion of all — dumbfoundedness. That is, if dumbfoundedness actually is a word. But with Friday’s debacle fresh in our minds and knowing (the good) Isa-

Ms slide on ice at SNHU The Big Story: So much for home ice advantage. After taking the first two games of their Round 3 playoff match-up with South Carolina down south, the Monarchs lost both games at SNHU over the weekend. After just not being able to score in 2-1 and 3-1 losses, they dropped down 3-2 to the Stingrays with Game 6 and possibly Game 7 slated for after deadline. Sports 101: On this day in 1984 the Red Sox set the wheel in motion for the crushing Game 6 loss to the Mets in the 1986 World Series by consummating the fateful deal that brought Bill Buckner to Boston. Who did the Cubs get back in the deal for Billy Buck? Freshman Slam of the Week: It goes to Londonderry’s Gia Komst, who blasted a bases-clearing homer in the second inning on her way to a 6-RBI day in the Lancers’ 7-0 win over Alvirne. Upperclassman Slam of the Week: That would go to Trinity’s Carly Gagnon, whose grand slam came in the first inning as she matched Komst’s 6-RBI output in the Pioneers’ 7-3 win over West. Upperclassman Inside-the-Park Homer of the Week: Bedford’s Connor Collins raced around the bases for this one in the Bulldogs’ 6-4 win over Nashua South.
Rally of the Week: It goes to the SNHU baseball team, who staved off elimination in the NCAA East Regional played on North River Road over the weekend by scoring three in the seventh and four in the eighth to turn an impending 2-0 loss to Felician on Sunday into a moving-on-to-the-finals-vs.St. Thomas Aquinas 8-2 win. Sports 101 Answer: The Sox sent struggling starter Dennis Eckersley west for Buckner, who after continuing to struggle was dumped on Oakland a few years later, where he resurrected his once promising career in the bullpen as a primo closer. On The Date – May 25: 1935 – Babe Ruth hits his last three home runs with the last being the first ball ever hit completely out of Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. 1935 – In the greatest 45 minutes ever in sports, Jesse Owens astonishingly equals or breaks four world records in 45 minutes at the Big Ten Track and Field championships. 1941 – On his way to being MLB’s last .400 hitter, Ted Williams’ batting average goes over .400 for the first time. 1965 – Muhammad Ali KOs Sonny Liston with the famed phantom punch in Round 1 of their heavyweight boxing title rematch in backwoods Lewiston, Maine.

4 – consecutive no-hitters thrown by Oyster River Hurler Brennen Oxford in a 6-0, 13-strikeout no-no over Hollis-Brookline to extend his hitless streak to an astonishing 30.2 innings. 5 – goals scored each by Emily Holland and Erica Tsetsilas in leading Londonderry to a 14-8
lacrosse win over Exeter. Londonderry’s Sean Snyder also pulled the five-goal trick in a 21-6 win over Central. 6 – game-high goals scored by Ethan Meissner in Trinity’s 16-4 lacrosse win over Belmont. 11 – goals from Madi Kochanek and Olivia Strong in leading Derryfield School to a 17-5 win over
Bishop Brady. 28 – runs scored by Central in consecutive 13-12 and 15-1 wins over Trinity and Memorial to get their playoff hopes back on track. 68 – incredible Taylor French pitch count in a complete-game 3-1 Goffstown win over John Stark when he gave up four hits and struck out five. C
Dennis Johnson: Called a “cancer” on the team elsewhere, but glue guy and great defender, who had the presence of mind to cut to the basket as Larry Bird was stealing (the bad) Isiah Thomas’ lazy inbound pass to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat vs. dastardly Detroit in Game 5 of the 1987 playoffs. A mediocre shooter at best, who always made the shot in the big moment. And the best player he ever played with according to Mr. Bird. Cancer on the Team: Term attributed to DJ after clashing with coaches in Seattle and Phoenix and most likely factor in how Red Auerbach somehow got the Suns to throw in a first-round pick with DJ in a lopsided deal for just back-up big Rick Robey. Dingbat Father – LaVar: If you needed more evidence Lonzo Ball’s dad is a boorish livethrough-his-kids dolt, it came last week with his condescending and sexist “stay in your own lane” crack to Christine Lahey during an appearance on the Colin Cowherd radio show. Immaculate Reception Game: With time for one more play in the 1972 NFL playoff game with Oakland, Terry Bradshaw fires to halfback Frenchy Fuqua, who gets drilled by Jack Tatum, sending the ball and game seemingly into oblivion before Franco Harris shocks the Raiders, Steelers, stadium crowd, TV crew and TV viewers seeing the wild pan of the camera to catch up after he snatches the ricochet an inch off the ground and runs for the game-winning TD.

Nestled in the White Mountains in Lincoln is a family-friendly amusement park whose rustic charm is matched by its unique eccentricities. Clark’s Trading Post is famous for its trained black bear show, a steam train ride and a character known as the infamous Wolfman, who hurls silly, nonsensical insults at visitors as though the ornery hermit’s turf had been encroached upon. Other attractions include a Chinese acrobat show, blaster boats (imagine bumper cars in the water with built-in super soakers), a rock climbing tower and a funhouse called Merlin’s Mystical Mansion. The water slide, called Anaconda Escape, shoots you through 300 feet of twists and turns in a rubber raft, and a Segway safari through the woods is available for an extra $25. The park was founded in 1928 by Florence and Ed Clark as “Ed Clark’s Eskimo Sled Dog Ranch,” which featured pure-bred sled dogs, artifacts from the far north, and souvenirs and maple candy for sale to visitors. In 1931 they bought their first black bear, which passersby would stop to see. By 1949, their two sons started training the bears to perform in a show. The park is still in the family, with fifth-generation owners and up to 20 family members working at the park. The park opens for the season on May 27 for weekends only until June 16, when it is open during weekdays as well. It is located at 110 Daniel Webster Highway, Lincoln.

You can celebrate Christmas all year long at the holiday-themed amusement park Santa’s Village in Jefferson. There are all kinds of kid-friendly rides and attractions, such as the Reindeer Carousel, the Yule Log Flume and The Skyway Sleigh. You can tour the village via Santa’s Express Train, catch overhead views of the park and of Mount Washington aboard the Christmas Ferris Wheel and even travel through Scrooge’s house during The Great Humbug Adventure ride. Cool off in the summertime at the Ho Ho H20 Water Park or zip down the Joy Ride Slides, a trio of water slides standing three stories high. Of course, it wouldn’t be Santa’s Village without Santa, who is always available to take pictures with guests at his home. You can also stop by the reindeer barn to pet and feed real reindeer and play reindeer games. Finally, be sure to catch a show at one of the village’s entertainment venues like the Jingle Bell Theater or the Polar Theater, or become the star of the show yourself during Christmas Carol-o-key, a guest-led singalong of holiday songs. Santa’s Village is at 528 Presidential Highway in Jefferson. It’s open daily June 17 through Sept. 4, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 or 6 p.m., depending on the day, and on various weekends throughout the year.

ARTS Two decades of sculpture
Mill Brook Gallery celebrates 20th Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit By Kelly Sennott
The Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden is not your everyday gallery. It sits alongside a rural road, at the end of a long, dirt driveway decorated with trees, flowers, wooden fences and sculptures. The building itself holds smaller pieces — paintings, prints, photographs, jewelry — and behind it, nestled next to a small pond and pasture of grazing horses, stand more than 20 outdoor-friendly pieces courtesy of New England artists. They’re all part of the gallery’s 20th Annual Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit, on view May 26 through Oct. 15, with an opening reception Sunday, May 28, from 2 to 4 p.m. Before owner Pam Tarbell started the gallery in 1996, her property housed after-school art programs, teaching kids the media they might not learn in school due to time or budget constraints. But while she taught these classes, she realized there were other gaps in their art education. “I realized I didn’t see a lot of art history in their art classes,” Tarbell said during an interview at the gallery, a week before the show’s start. “Maybe some had gone to the Currier. Maybe one had been to Boston. … But mostly, people do not take their kids to see art.” So Tarbell took action and went to the 20th Annual Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit Where: Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden, 236 Hopkinton Road, Concord When: On view May 26 through Oct. 15; opening reception Sunday, May 28, from 2 to 4 p.m.; hours are Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment Contact: 226-2046, themillbrookgallery.com

zoning board three times before obtaining permission to start the gallery on her property. It was important to her she open the space up not only to local painters and printmakers but also to sculptors, who at the time didn’t have a lot of avenues to sell work. “Twenty years ago, it was like sculptors were dying to get their pieces out and exposed because there were no places to exhibit,” Tarbell said. Since then, things have changed. The medium has found its way into “sculpture walks” in universities and downtowns. Sometimes it’s actually hard to get ahold of enough pieces for a show. “There’s a lot more competition for sculpture now,” Tarbell said. “All of a sudden, everybody decided it was cool, and there were lots of calls for sculptures.” Even so, Tarbell, an artist herself, was able to collect many new pieces to become part of the landscape of her grounds, from the tiny painted metal “Cardinal” by Dale Rogers to
the slim, elegant “Flute Player” looking over the water by David Borrus. Two of the pieces are by Hopkinton, Mass., artist Michael Alfano: “We Two Together,” a bronze resin piece depicting two people holding hands and creating a third, larger face, and “Evolution,” made from stainless steel and granite. “The thing I really love about sculpture is it’s really hands-on, both in the making and the enjoyment of it. Children and adults can walk around the sculpture, and feel it, and touch it,” Alfano said. “Pam provides a wonderful venue, both for the community to come in and see cutting-edge art, and for artists to be able to show their larger pieces that may not fit in indoor galleries, and pieces that are a little more thought-provoking.” Husband-wife team Lindley and Jeffrey Briggs each have a sculpture at the gallery — his “Gryphon,” inspired by the statue overlooking the Philadelphia Museum of Art, is made of fiberglass resin, and so is her “Sanc-

tuary,” depicting a hand holding a tiny figure. “I love hands. To me, they symbolize nurturing,” Lindley Briggs said via phone.“I’ve been an artist for many, many years. … I’m always fascinated by looking at people’s hands. I think there’s symbolism in what they evoke.” The Newburyport, Mass., couple have been professional artists for decades. Past clients include Disney, Eddie Bauer, L.L. Bean and Timberland. Recently, Jeffrey Briggs was commissioned to create the Greenway Carousel for the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston. Their work has seen many outdoor exhibits, most commissioned by schools or organizations, but few galleries. “[Tarbell] is one of the few gallery owners with such a huge sculpture show in New England. In your traditional gallery, sculpture is minimized because sales for paintings are so much better. People can always buy paintings and put them on the wall, but sculpture is a lot more difficult to sell,” Lindley Briggs said.

Dimensions in Dance brings back Aladdin By Kelly Sennott
There are so many reasons Dimensions in Dance Artistic Director Amy Fortier likes presenting ballet productions instead of recitals. One is to teach students new dance styles; in the Manchester company’s version of Aladdin at the Palace Theatre this Saturday, May 27, they tell the story via ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, acro (acrobatics), plus pieces inspired by Bollywood and traditional belly dancing. Fortier first produced Aladdin a decade ago, her first year as director, and she’s encouraged to see company improvements, from the dancers to herself. “As a 26-year-old, I knew a lot about dance, but didn’t know a lot about producing a show,” Fortier said via phone. “The show as a whole is a lot more involved than it was 10 years ago. I’ve learned a lot about theatrical production elements.” These production elements are important to her; she and dance parents spent months devising costumes and sets, spray-painting bird cages for Princess Jasmine’s menagerie and constructing gold, glittery columns for the Cave of Wonders. A fog machine will help create the illusion of the Genie rising from the lamp. “It’s always exciting … for our dancers to showcase what they’ve learned. They’ve worked hard all year, and so that’s why we put so much work into our end of it,” Fortier said. “When we do repeat themes, it’s exciting for them to have been a little tiny kid, and now get to do a bigger part.” Morgan Gosselin, for instance, was a 7-year-old desert flower in her first Aladdin. This time around, she tackles the role of Genie. She can’t remember every detail of that first show, but she’s seen videos. “I think we do a much better job now of

making everything flow, and telling a story,” Gosselin said during a recent rehearsal at the studio. “I think our studio’s dancing has gotten a lot better too.” Gosselin said the story element makes both dancing and watching the show more exciting. Her numbers involve aerials, walkovers and cartwheels, but they also involve acting. It’s kind of like theater, but AMY FORTIER musical without singing or speaking; filling the slots between Disney songs are pieces from ballets like Le Corsaire and La Bayadère. Dancers also love the opportunity to perform in solo or featured roles. “I used to dance at a studio that just did a recital-type thing, and there were no solo parts for anyone. Whatever your class was doing, you would do,” said Molly Boll, who performs as Iago. “It’s a lot more fun to get into a character.” The big day — May 27 — is a long, strenuous one for the cast of 179 dancers, who range in age from 2 through adult. Gosselin joked she started running to get fit and ready. Between shows, it’s important they replenish with food, water and rest. But it’s worth all the work. “It’s something we look forward to every year,” Gosselin said.
The show ... is a lot more involved than it was 10 years ago. I’ve learned a lot about theatrical production...

IN/OUT THE GARDENING GUY
(Almost) tomato time Stars align June 10 to June 12 By Henry Homeyer
HIPPO | MAY 25 - 31, 2017 | PAGE 50
Maybe you’ve already planted your tomatoes. I have not. I’m waiting until June 10. By then, even in my cold Zone 4 garden, I know there will be no more frost and the ground will be above 60 degrees. And the stars, moon and planets will be aligned from June 10 to June 12 to promote success for fruits, one of the four categories listed in the Stella Natura calendar, a biodynamic guide that I follow (stellanatura.com). I start my seedlings indoors in April, and I’m in no rush to put my babies outside in the cold, rainy world that I’ve been seeing in May. And even if you have planted yours, I bet mine will catch up with yours. Tomatoes hate cold feet and a few days of chilly rain will make them cranky — and slow their growth. Before my tomatoes and other plants get in the garden they get “hardened off.” If you are new to gardening, that just means I introduce them to the sun and wind over a period of time: an hour at first, or a morning on a north-facing deck; later, four hours of afternoon sun, and finally, if the temperature will stay up above 50 all night, they have a sleepover outside, but out of the wind. All this just means when they go in the ground, they will not be shocked. Do you buy your seedlings? Ask at the garden center if the plants you buy have been hardened off. Even Brussels sprouts can be damaged if they have never been hardened off and go right in the garden. I want my tomatoes to have lots of vigorous roots. To help ensure this I pinch off most leaves on the stem, leaving just those on the very top — sort of like a cartoon palm tree. Then I bury that stem and it develops lots of extra roots. Sometimes I just plant the rootball and stem down deep. Other times I plant the tomatoes sideways: I make a space for the rootball, and a little trench for the stem. I cover all that, and turn up the stem at the top so the few remaining leaves are barely above the soil line. Leggy broccoli can be planted deeply, too, to help it stay erect, and to develop more roots. Legginess is common for seedlings started indoors that have been a little light-starved, and I think all can be planted deeply, but only have done this with tomatoes and broccoli. What else gets extra care and a late planting date? Eggplants, peppers, cucumbers, squash of all types and basil. They all like hot climates, and come from them. I did plant seeds in May including peas, spinach, carrots, beets, parsnips, cabbage and lettuce. Those are all doing fine. Actually peas went in a bit late and are not up yet for me at the time of writing. Peas can be very slow to germinate, and can even rot in the ground if we get a lot of cold

rain. I plant most everything in raised beds, in part, to get the soil to warm up early and to dry out better. My garden is near a stream and we have a high water table, so raised beds help. I just mound up the soil from walkways and add compost to get nice raised beds. Peas and beans of all types can benefit by being inoculated with a bacterium powder that is sold in garden centers and at my feed– n-grain store. Peas and beans are legumes, a group of vegetables with nodules in their roots. If these contain rhizobium bacteria, they take nitrogen from the air and “fix” it so that it stays in a form useable by plants. Free fertilizer, if you will. Contrary to “rural legend,” the nitrogen fixed by peas and beans does not improve the soil much. I thought the rhizobium bacteria were pumping nitrogen into the soil. In fact, most of the production is used by the plants. The nodules that contain the bacteria are generally pink or reddish when producing well, and can be as big as a pea. When you pull a pea or bean plant, look at the roots. If you do not see lumps of nodules, be sure to introduce the bacteria next year (it may or may not be present in your soil naturally). A few words about mulching: do not mulch your plants right away. Wait until the soil is very warm — 60 degrees or more — before mulching. Yes, the mulch will keep down weeds and hold in moisture, but it will also prevent the sun from warming the root zone. I know gardeners that like to put down black plastic to kill weeds and add heat to the soil. I have used it, particularly for growing watermelons and pumpkins, but don’t like it. Most plastic lasts just one year and then has to go to the landfill. It’s not a sustainable practice. I do like using woven landscape fabric. A GardenMats produces rolls of fabric with precut holes spaced for specific crops. These mats keep down weeds but let air and water through. The rolls are 4 feet wide, but I slice mine in the middle as my raised beds are only about 30 inches wide. I put leaves or mulch hay around the edges and in my walkways. I tend to plant later than many gardeners. Usually I am glad I did. Read Henry’s blog at dailyUV.com.
IN/OUT TREASURE HUNT
Dear Donna, I’m sending a quick note to ask for your opinion on this item. We have a neighbor who would like to purchase this piece from my husband and me. We are retiring and moving to Florida. Not sure what a fair price would be. Can you help? Marsha from Hooksett Dear Donna, What you have is an armoire. They are great pieces of furniture for lots of storage. They can have all shelving or sometimes they also have a bar for hanging clothes. Not sure of the age from the pictures. A lot of these were made even today to look just like the old. Then there are ones from England that are shipped in that have actually been made with old boards — they are just new to the armoire. Tough to tell without actually seeing the piece. I will say this to give you some information. If it is an older one or and English one, even if it’s modern, it looks to be a quality piece of furniture. So the value on your piece would have to be based on just that, unless you have more of the history than what you have shared. Given all that I still would think it should be in the $1,000 range as long as it is in good shape as it looks to be. I don’t know too

IN/OUT CAR TALK
Knock sensor can be a costly, but necessary, pain to repair Dear Car Talk: I drive a 2005 Toyota 4Runner SR5 with 85,000 miles on it. Other than routine repairs, the vehicle has been trouble-free for all the years I’ve owned it. By Ray Magliozzi About two months ago, the check engine light came on. I took it to my regular shop to have it checked out, and was told that the service code indicated a problem with the “knock sensor.” Not being a mechanic, I thought, “How bad could that be?” Wrong! Because of the sensor’s location on the engine, I learned that it would involve considerable labor and cost roughly $2,200 to replace. I was stunned, and decided to wait on the repair until I could do some research. I found that having to replace the sensor is rare, but is indeed a costly repair. But here’s the thing: The warning lights come on intermittently, shutting off for several days before reappearing. The engine appears to be running smoothly, no rough starting, idling or knocking. So, before spending a chunk of change, possibly needlessly, I thought I would get your input. Are there other possible causes for this problem, and can engine damage result
from not replacing the sensor? I read your column weekly and trust your sage advice (your great sense of humor is an added bonus). Thanks for any advice you can provide. — William Wow, you hit the bad-news jackpot, William. The knock sensor is a complete pain in the tailgate to replace. You have to remove the air plenum, the intake manifold, the timing belt and lots of other stuff to get at it. The fact that Toyota buried it like that tells me that they never expected it to fail. And perhaps it hasn’t failed. It easily could be a broken or frayed wire leading to the knock sensor that’s causing the warning light to go on and off. Once your mechanic removes the plenum, which is easy, he should see a wiring harness that leads to that sensor. Who knows? You might find a rodent nest in there and a chewed-up wire or two. You really do need a working knock sensor. The sensor continuously gauges the timing of the explosions in your cylinders, and adjusts the spark timing if the explosions start happening too early (that’s called knocking, or pre-ignition, and it’s damaging to your engine — and in extreme cases, can even burn a hole in a piston). Here’s my advice: Find yourself a
mechanic who is willing to take it a step at a time. Have him start by removing the plenum and checking the wiring first. You can be standing next to him with a stack of $20s and dole one out to him every 15 minutes as he works. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to stop doling well short of $2,200. I sure hope so, William. Dear Car Talk: I own a beautiful 1985 Mercedes 280SL. At my last hose changeover, I was informed that there were only 43 of the “molded” radiator hoses available, nationwide. The other hoses could be replaced off the shelf. My question is: Does it make sense to buy several of these hoses now, place them in zip bags and put them inside some sort of airtight plastic containers to prevent deterioration? Will they be useful in eight years, at the next changeover? If not, do you have any suggestions as to how to deal with this problem? I don’t want to have to sell my beloved Benz to a collector. — Steven I think you should corner the market, Steven. Buy all 43 of them and go into business. You’ll be like the Hunt Brothers with silver in the 1970s. I don’t see any real downside in buying a
couple of the hard-to-find hoses for future use — especially if this is a vehicle you plan to keep forever. If I were you, I’d put some Armor All on them to help keep them from drying out. Then I’d put them in Ziploc bags and put them in a box in the back of a closet somewhere. By the way, I’ll be expecting my monthly checks from Armor All and Ziploc for those mentions, fellas. Honestly, I think the rubber will be good forever. What degrades rubber is oxygen and heat. And in Ziploc bags in a closet, they won’t be exposed to much of either one. The bigger danger is that you’ll forget where you put them, and create a real head-scratcher for your heirs when they sort through your prized possessions. And keep in mind, too, that there are plenty of other parts on this car that are going to become obsolete and hard to find. It’ll be a small miracle if the next hard-to-find part you need is that radiator hose in eight years. So maybe you should pick up one of everything now. Instead of storing the parts in your closet, use them to build a second 1985 280SL in your garage. And then pluck it for parts. Good luck, Steven. Visit Cartalk.com.

Gate City Corvette Club holds annual Spring Fling show
October 14th, 2017
Hundreds of Corvettes and other show cars will take over The Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Merrimack during the 37th annual Spring Fling. The event, hosted by the Gate City Corvette Club, is happening Sunday, May 28, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free to attend. The event will also include food, music, raffles, and ongoing brewery tours and photo opportunities with the Clydesdales. Anyone who wants to enter a Corvette into the competition can do so on the day of the Spring Fling for $25 per car. Show organizer Dean Gagne said the Corvettes are sorted by generation and judged by club members in three separate categories, with the winner of each receiving a trophy. “The first category we call Street Class, so we’ll judge the outside of the car for its glass, paint and tires, but not really anything more than that,” he said. “The second class is Super Street, where we’ll look at both the outside and interior [of each car], checking the condition of the seats, the dashboard, the instrument panel, the trunk, that sort of thing. … The third category is called Show Class, and that’s basically everything, including the engine, the undercarriage and the fender wells.” There will also be a Kids’ Choice winner — a feature Gagne said was introduced at last year’s Spring Fling that was a big hit. “All of the kids that come to the show with their families can come and vote for their favorite car for any random reason like their favorite color … and it’s a great way to make them feel involved,” he said. Gagne said the generations of Corvettes are named C1 through C7. Some of the most common cars that make it out to the Spring Fling are of the C3 and C4 gener-
ations — Corvettes from the years 1968 to 1982 and 1984 to 1996. Members of the club do not enter their own cars in the show as a rule, he said. Instead, they display their own cars in a separate section on the grass. A corral parking section is also available for people who want to bring other nonCorvette sports cars to the show. “In the past, it was for Corvettes only, but there were a lot of other local [car] clubs who wanted to support us and bring their cars just to hang out, so we ended up doing the corral parking for them,” Gagne said. “Sometimes you’ll see Ferraris, Mustangs … and people have even brought monster trucks, and old antique cars like Packards and Duesenbergs.” There will be a raffle table with chances to win various items like T-shirts, hats, keychains, amenities for your car like tire wax and more. The club will also be giving out small goodie bags to visitors and participants. The Gate City Corvette Club has members across southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts. It meets at MacMulkin Chevrolet in Nashua on the second Friday of the month at 7 p.m. and an annual membership is $49. “We’re always looking for new members,” Gagne said. “We do all sorts of social functions and we usually have new people attend three different functions before becoming a member to get to know you and to make sure you’re having fun.”
Gate City Corvette Club’s 37th annual Spring Fling When: Sunday, May 28, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Where: Anheuser-Busch Brewery, 221 Daniel Webster Highway, Merrimack Cost: Free admission; $25 per Corvette to participate in the judging; $10 per nonCorvette to park in corral parking section Visit: gatecitycorvetteclub.com

Nashua tasting event features dozens of restaurants By Angie Sykeny
Embark on a culinary journey through Nashua’s restaurant scene when Great American Downtown hosts the city’s annual tasting event, Taste of Downtown Nashua, on Wednesday, June 7. More than two dozen area restaurants and other food and beverage businesses will serve samples at partnering retail establishments in downtown. Now in its 23rd year, Taste of Downtown Nashua was started before Great American Downtown formed and is a “strong part of the roots” of the community organization, Executive Director Paul Shea said. “I think this is going to be the largest [Taste of Downtown Nashua] event that we’ve ever had as far as the number of participating venues go,” he said. “It has slowly grown over the years as we have more dining establishments opening up. Now we have well over 40 restaurants in downtown, which is really exciting.” The restaurants’ cuisines run the gamut with Mexican, Italian, Indian, Thai, coffees and cafe eats, seafood, pizza, pub fare and more. Additionally, there will be two wine tasting and two beer tasting locations. Shea said the roster features “old favorites” like MT’s Local Kitchen & Wine Bar, Surf Restaurant and Fody’s Great American Tavern, as well as some first-year participants, including new restaurants Casa Mezcal, Arbor Restaurant and Flight Center, as well as recently opened Nashua locations of FratelTaste of Downtown Nashua Where: Downtown Nashua When: Wednesday, June 7, 6 to 8:30 p.m. Cost: $40 for adults, $10 for kids ages 6 through 12, free for kids age 5 and under; online ticket sales close May 30.

lo’s Italian Grille and Taj India. Most restaurants bring a few different kinds of samples, usually a combination of signature menu items and new or specialty items prepared exclusively for the tasting. “The chefs work hard to put their best foot forward,” Shea said. “They want to show off what they’re good at and what they’re known for, but they also like the opportunity to get creative and dabble in new things and show off their culinary prowess.” On average, tasters make it to about 15 stops, Shea said, so the best approach is to look at the tour map and plot your course beforehand, prioritizing your favorite restaurants or restaurants that are new or intriguing to you. This year’s event is also open to kids and includes a kids’ admission price that has not been previously offered. “Not only is it a great event for folks to explore what we’ve got going on in downtown, but it’s also a great event for parents of children with adventurous palates.” Shea said. “They can take them to eat at more than 25 different stops without the the price tag of taking them out for a full-priced meal.”

fried noodle plates. For dessert, there are Thai favorites like mango sticky rice, fried banana ice cream and mor kang thai (a custard dessert). While many of the dishes on the menu are common in Thailand, the recipe variations are original family recipes that Nipaporn has been cooking since she was 10 years old. “These recipes aren’t online. They aren’t Americanized. These are 100-percent authentic Thai recipes with Thai ingredients and the Thai style,” Desmond Holman said. “We want you to feel DESMOND HOLMAN like you’ve actually stepped into a restaurant in Thailand.” Named after Thailand’s national flower, Daw Kun also recreates the aesthetic atmosphere of a genuine Thai restaurant through its open dining room layout, wooden tables and booths, vibrantly colored walls and large Thai paintings and art prints. Even the menu design follows that of menus in Thailand, which feature a photo of the prepared dish for every dish listed. In the future, the Holmans want to expand with an alcoholic beverage menu, Thai-style sushi bar and outdoor patio. Aside from the authentic Thai recipes, Nipaporn said it’s the level of care she puts into each dish that sets Daw Kun apart. “It’s not just business; I cook with love. Everything I cook, I make sure it’s good, and if it isn’t, [it goes in the] trash, and I start over,” she said. “We want people to keep coming back and to feel like this is family.”

When married couple Nipaporn and Desmond Holman opened their Thai restaurant Daw Kun in Manchester earlier this month, they had one goal in mind: give customers the most authentic Thai dining experience possible. Shortly after moving from Thailand to New Hampshire in 2010, Nipaporn got a job cooking at a local Thai restaurant. While she enjoyed being in the kitchen, she was disappointed to find that the food was very different from the food she used to make and eat in Thailand. So she decided to open a Thai restaurant that stays true to the traditional dishes and cooking styles of Thailand. “Most Americans who loved the food in Thailand will complain when they go to a Thai restaurant [in the U.S.] and order [a dish with] the same name as in Thailand, because it’s not the same,” she said. “Why [call it a] ‘Thai restaurant’ if it’s not the same food? That’s why all the food I cook here is the real food people eat in Thailand. It’s the food I grew up with.” The menu opens with appetizers like Thai-style crab rangoon, curry puffs and deep-fried shrimp egg rolls, followed by a list of 18 lunch specials including curries, vegetable dishes and fried rice and noodle plates, all of which have the option of adding chicken, beef, pork, fish, shrimp, squid, scallops or salmon. Then, there are house specialties like pla rad prik (fried fish in chili sauce), pad thai talay (seafood pad thai) and khao mun kai (steamed chicken and rice), and dinner plates like pad ped kai (spicy stir fry chicken), pad kra tiam (pork garlic sauce) and pad ka prao (chicken or pork basil sauce). The rest of the menu is broken into curry dishes, salads, soups and noodle soups, fried rice and pan-

Kimmy Lavoie first realized her passion for cooking as a kid, watching Julia Child’s cooking programs on television when she got home from school. “Then, I’d make these little menus on the computer with clip art and practice making little creations in the kitchen,” she said. “Being a chef was always my goal.” In June 2016, Lavoie’s longtime friend Persia Ardehali opened gastropub Bar One (40 Nashua St., Milford, 249-5327, facebook.com/baronenh) and invited Lavoie to be the executive chef. Inspired by her time living in South Carolina a few years prior, Lavoie developed a menu of southern-style dishes like hushpuppies, fried green tomatoes and chicken and waffles. In the Hippo Best Of 2017 readers poll, Lavoie was named Best of Nashua in the Best Chef category, and Bar One was named Best of Nashua for Best New Eatery. What is your must-have kitchen item? The dishwashers. It’s a really dirty and demanding job and a lot of hard work, and I feel like they don’t get enough credit. They are the backbone of the kitchen. I couldn’t perform my job without them.
the week. We’ve done ketchup, we’ve done heavy cream for mac and cheese, we throw everything in that smoker and experiment with it. It also gives me an excuse to sit at home, tending to the cooker. It’s a relaxing way to cook.
What is your favorite thing on your menu? The black burger. It’s a half-pound homemade hamburger patty on a toasted brioche bun with black garlic aioli, caramelized onions and bourbon candied bacon. … I had never heard of [black garlic aioli] so I bought it to check it out, and the second I tasted it, I thought, ‘This has to be on a burger.’
What would you choose for your last meal? A good old-fashioned New England clam and lobster bake with all the fixin’s. What is your favorite local restaurant, besides your own? Sweet Ginger in Merrimack is really good. Their tom kha soup, especially, is so good. I think about it all the time.
What celebrity would you like to see eating at your restaurant? Gordon Ramsay. I am always looking for constructive criticism and trying to learn, and I know he’d tear my cooking apart and help me grow as a chef.
What is the biggest food trend in New Hampshire right now? Everyone is crazy for tacos lately. On social media, people are always talking about tacos. In Milford, we have a bunch of different restaurants that do Taco Tuesday and have some kind of taco deal. We [at Bar What is your favorite meal to cook at One] don’t do it… but we did a taco special home? for Cinco de Mayo, and they sold out pretI love using the smoker at home.

have been growing it for weeks. It is, hands down, my favorite leafy green. It blends well, cooks well and is easier to digest than the ever-trendy kale. Folic acid, iron and vitamin A — spinach has them all! Even though I do vary my spinach meals, I get bored. Grain bowls are the perfect alternative to salads: a little heartier yet just as nutritious. Make your grains and chicken in a large batch on Sunday and enjoy your prep all week. If you get bored, vary the protein or the vinaigrette. Take inspiration from your favorite restaurants if you’re hard-pressed for ideas. Grain bowls are everywhere! — Allison Willson Dudas 1 teaspoon raw local honey 2 teaspoons lemon zest Toppings Salt & pepper to taste ½ breast grilled chicken Combine quinoa and water in pot. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 12-15 minutes. Let cool. Meanwhile make the vinaigrette. In a small bowl whisk together vinegar, mustard and garlic. Slowly whisk in oil, then stir in syrup and lemon zest. Place cooled quinoa in large bowl. Add remaining salad ingredients and vinaigrette, and toss together to combine. Season with salt and pepper; serve with chicken.

Warm weather is here! I’m so grateful as it’s been a long winter (I say this every year). Once the weather shifts, my diet shifts too! Hot tea turns to iced, soup to salad and I can’t stop eating ice cream! Shifting one’s diet with the weather makes so much sense because of where we live. For one, there is an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables on their way. For another, those same fruits and vegetables are available locally at farms and markets near you. One of my staples is always spinach. It goes in my smoothies, in my homemade popsicles, in my soups and in my salads — it’s wonderfully versatile. It’s also already in season around here! Since spinach is so hardy, farmers of New Hampshire

Many people consider Memorial Day weekend to be the official start of summer and see it as the best time to get the grill fired up. This is the time of year when I typically leave most red wines on the wine rack and trade them in for whites. However, some reds pair very well with grilled meats, so keep those stocked for such occasions. Here are some wine and grilled food ideas for Memorial Day that you can also use throughout the summer. If you are skipping the meat and having grilled vegetables, reach for a grüner veltliner from Austria. While this may not be a wine you immediately think of, it pairs well with skewers. Also, it is very affordable, as the New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlets have several options priced under $15. Pinot gris is an ideal pairing for grilled seafood like salmon or other lighter-flavored fish. While it is similar to pinot grigio, it tends to have more depth and dimension. Try one from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, a region that is now on my list of top favorites. Grilled chicken is one of my staples in the summer. I feel like it is pretty easy to pair with a variety of whites, depending upon how you are preparing it, with rubs, sauces, barbecue sauce or hot sauce. One of its ideal pairings that is also very budgetfriendly is vinho verde from Portugal. This wine has a nice slight effervescence and is light and refreshing. It is one of my “go to” wines in the summer. My only complaint is that we do not have enough Portuguese wine available here in the United States. What is firing up the grill without cooking a nice meaty steak? Here, there are two suggestions: Spanish tempranillo or Chilean carmenere. The depth and body of these wines can stand up to the meatiness of the steak. Also, the earthiness and kick of spice in the wine will pair nicely with the steak. I sometimes find these wines too tannic to sip on their own, but pair them with the right food and it is a match made in grilling heaven. If you are having beef burgers instead of steak, you have choices. The toppings can come into play here (blue cheese, peppers and onions, and so on), so keep this in mind when choosing, but typically the best wines are malbec, zinfandel and grenache. I would even suggest red blends that have a combination of these grapes, or a homemade, refreshing red wine sangria. As with the steak pairings, a wine with some earthiness and smokiness may not be your first
choice on its own but will make a nice combination with the food.
Italian wines & rosés tasting
Italian wines can be intimidating and rosé doesn’t get nearly enough attention, so I am happy to let you know about an upcoming opportunity to experience both. The New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlets will host an “Italian Wines & Rosés from Around the World” event on June 1 at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford. Why should you attend? I hear there will be more than 15 tables of wines and a sampling of gourmet hors d’oeuvres. However, I find quality to be better than quantity when it comes to these wines. Italian wines are among my absolute favorites and this event will give you a chance to taste reds and whites. I also mentioned that rosé is one of the most underrated wines out there, but it has gained attention in recent years. This is a chance to taste a variety of rosés, find some new favorites and learn something too! According to NHLC Chairman Joseph Mollica, “We have seen sales of Italian wines and rosés surge in recent years, and this exclusive tasting event gives guests the chance to sample from more than 150 delicious Italian red and whites, along with rosés, and purchase wines right at the event.” For tickets, visit nhliquorwine.ticketleap. com. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Palace Theatre in Manchester, to support this nonprofit performing arts center.

A roll-up of previous super-limited-run vinyl records from the Akron, Ohio-based husband-and-wife team more colloquially known as Trouble Books. Under that nym they’ve traveled to some pretty cool places and released a lot of material, mostly ambient testpattern stuff over which Keith Freund sings in slack-jawed, simplistic Phil Elverum tones. They usually work from home, as they did here, but this time it’s a communal effort toward which their Akron neighbors contributed vocals and assorted sounds from such things as violas, violins and, apparently, a “Christmas tree.” This 15-songer opens with “Municipal Xerox,” an amateurishly played piano line alternately marching and galloping while assorted found-tech ghosties swoop down, after which the string section kicks in for a few phrases. That’s an example for you anyway; again, this is an ambient, off-the-cuff project, probably (I’d hope) more freely experimental than anything else they’ve done before. B+ — Eric W. Seager Paul Whiteman, King of Jazz 1920-1927 (Timeless Records)
Now that our New England weather is settling into an actual spring/summer pattern (sort of), it’s time to dig out your CDs or program your iPods with a little top-down joy in mind. A violinist and perfectionist, Whiteman isn’t the household name Al Jolson is, but during the Roaring 20s he was in the same league, the go-to bandleader for flappers, bootleggers and regular joes. He was an early employer of Bing Crosby, who gets a few tunes on this set, which, like most of his output, has an uncannily good sound, at least compared to today’s vinyl-to-digital fossilized impressions of such contemporaries as Leo Reisman — put simply, the sound quality is up there with Jolson and Jelly Roll Morton, not a hopeless, unlistenable mess, the way it can be with the majority of 1920s recordings. I’ve heard Whiteman records that had less hiss than this one, but it does try to even the field between early and later periods of the decade. Enclosed you’ll hear the real version — well, two versions — of the actual “Charleston” your great-grandparents got down to, along with “St. Louis Blues,” “Everybody Step” and “Nuthin’ But.” For me it was a bit short at 25 tracks, several of which are tunes, like “Charleston,” that get two different versions one after another, which can be repetitious. Past that, it’s just further proof that the man was truly one of the greats. B+ — Eric W. Seager

What a difference fresh-picked makes!

• At this writing the new release list for May 26 is a puny handful of not-much, the bottom of which is filled by some Brooklyn dude named Skye Steele, who will release an album titled All That Light on that day. He’s a folk artist specializing in “improvisational violin,” and that’s true, seeing as how “Back In The Valley,” the lead single on this new album, sounds like an Amtrak-traveling Sufjan Stevens thing with some interesting-enough loopbacks. It’s OK, if a little too happy for my taste. Then again, Chopin’s “Funeral March” is too happy for my taste. • The good thing about the NOMC15 album is that it’s a new record from ’80s/’90s alt-dance kingpins New Order. The bad news is that it’s just a live album, with apparently no new stuff, mostly keying off their 2015 Music Complete album. The list includes “Tutti Frutti” (that’s their own wingnut-disco song, not the song from Predator or whatnot), “Singularity,” etc. as well as some other back-catalog tunes and even some Joy Division stuff, meaning of course “Love Will Tear Us Apart.” See, they used to be Joy Division, and then… oh never mind. • The Charlatans (known as “The Charlatans U.K.” in the U.S., because neener, U.K. bands, even our unknown bands are more important than your puny 12-hit wonder bands) are back, with a new album, Different Days. Back in the 1990s, these guys had a No. 1 Alt-charts hit with “Weirdo,” which sounded like Wire doing an Austin Powers version of the Mission Impossible theme song. It was stupid, but so was most music in the 1990s, in the band’s defense. Anyway, these guys haven’t charted since George W. Bush was president, but they will try again, with this new album, so that in 30 seconds you’ll forget you even read this part. “Plastic Machinery,” the single, is a boring, disposable, Paisley Underground-ish mid-tempo effort whose saving grace is that it’s not headache-inducing. • Lastly we have Justin Townes Earle with, Kids in The Street, his latest album, a new set of Americana/folk/blues songs. “Champagne Corolla,” the single, is a Big Bopper-ish attempt at old-time rock-blues, basically the same song you’ve already heard a million times at wedding parties and bar mitzvahs, but with different lyrics and a different title. It’s nice enough, for a song that only took one minute for him to write, which he could have done while riding a unicycle and playing an accordion. — Eric W. Seager

Maine author Linda Greenlaw (America’s only female swordfishing captain) presents her newest Jane Bunker mystery, Shiver Hitch! Jane Bunker thought she’d escaped the pollution, noise, and dead bodies of the big city when she left her job as a Miami homicide detective and moved back to the idyllic town of Green Haven, Maine. But through her work as a marine insurance investigator, it appears she’s left behind the bustle of the city, but not the murder.

Letters to a Young Farmer, edited by Martha Hodgkins (Princeton Architectural Press, 175 pages) The 10 letters that Rainer Maria Rilke wrote to an aspiring poet in the first decade of the 20th century spawned a literary classic, and a generation of copycats. The original was the poignant and inspiring Letters to a Young Poet. Now there are Letters to a Young Writer, Letters to a Young Muslim, Letters to a Young Therapist, Letters to a Young Scientist, Letters to a Young Pharmacist, Letters to a Young Mormon. And so on. Into this well-trampled field saunters Letters to a Young Farmer, a collection of missives on “food, farming and our future” compiled by the Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture, a nonprofit in Tarrytown, N.Y., with a worthy, if yawn-inducing, mission: creating “a healthy and sustainable food system that benefits us all.” The slim paperback is edited by Martha Hodgkins, the group’s communications director, and it contains a smattering of luminous bylines, including Bill McKibben, Barbara Kingsolver, Michael Pollan, Marion Nestle, Temple Grandin and Wendell Berry. Unfortunately, it also contains bylines of, well, farmers, bringing to mind that popular saying, those who can’t write, farm. I’m sorry. It’s nothing personal, and admittedly, this comes from someone who struggles to grow radishes. On the cover, Mark Bittman, the celebrated food writer, promises (or warns), “This will make you want to become a farmer.” No. It will not. It will make you appreciate farmers, perhaps, and worry about their future, but all the talk of the long hours and isolation and assorted pestilence will more likely make your boring office job look peachy. As one contributor writes, farming is an “incredibly difficult, demanding, and sometimes heartbreaking way to make a living, if you can indeed make a living farming.” Another suggests that beginning farmers live in a camper, yurt or treehouse in the beginning. (“The kids won’t care if their beds are in a rusty camper if their lives are surrounded by the awe of living simply with nature.”) Which might explain why only 6 percent of U.S. farmers are under the age of 35, and they are often what Barbara Damrosch, a farmer in Maine, calls “orphan farmers” — those who come to farming without a bequest of arable land and the benefit of parents or grandparents to guide them. The opening to Damrosch’s essay is as elegant and compelling as those of any National Book Award winner: “Today I awoke to the first hard frost of fall, with the pastures and growing fields white. The flowers were all dead. Thank God.” Alice Waters, a California chef, also
delights with a short missive explaining how she became enamored of the slow-food culture when she spent a year in France at age 19: “Every day, I walked through the beautiful street markets on my way to school and ate in the local restaurants. I tasted things I’d never eaten before, things that opened my senses and that kindled something in my mind.” The farming that precedes it, Waters writes, is “at least 85 percent of cooking, because it is taste that will truly wake people up and bring them back to their senses and back to the land.” Michael Pollan — famous not only for his books but also his seven-word directive on what to eat (“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”) — confers by quoting Wendell Berry, “Eating is an agricultural act.” He also explains his “Thoreau problem,” recalling Henry David Thoreau’s preference for a wild swamp over a cultivated garden. “With that slightly obnoxious declaration, American writing about nature all but turned its back on the domestic landscape. It’s not at all surprising that we got better at conserving wilderness than at farming and gardening,” Pollan writes. The loveliest, and possibly most useful, of the letters belongs to Mary-Howell Martens, who farms 1,600 acres in upstate New York with her husband and son. Martens writes bluntly about the lonely work and the toll farming takes on marriages. Money, she warns, “will not come at regular intervals.” But, she writes, “You will be the first to see a newborn calf, an emerging seedling, the first rays of sunrise. You will smell rich, tilled earth, composted manure, rotten tomatoes, and diesel fuel. … The typical eight-hour American workday will cease to make any sense to you for the work will never be done.” At the end of the essay, she poses a question — “Had I known this before I married a farmer, would I have chosen this path?” — that Martens cagily does not answer. Finally, there’s Bill McKibben, the Vermont activist and author who is incapable of composing an uninteresting sentence. In his opening, McKibben speaks for all of us: the farmers, the thinking-about-beingfarmers, and those who will never get any closer to farm life than reading Charlotte’s Web. “As an old eater, let me first say, ‘thank you’ for this food we are about to receive. The work you’ve chosen to do is important to me on three major occasions each day and at frequent intervals in between. Without you, I’d have low blood sugar and be cranky. My wife thanks you, too.” Radiant, per usual. Not everything in this book is, but the farmers in your life would love it, if only they had time to read. B — Jennifer Graham

POP CULTURE FILM REVIEWS BY AMY DIAZ
Alien: Covenant (R)
Humans headed out to colonize a new world make some bad life choices in Alien: Covenant.
“Let’s follow that strange transmission to the uncharted planet and then explore it without any equipment that could protect us from contamination!” — that collection of iffy decisions sums up what the crew of the Covenant does after it is awakened some seven years too soon while on a trip to start a human colony a new planet. Unlike in Passengers, which also starts this way, some crew members die horribly right away, including the husband of Daniels (Katherine Waterston). He was the ship’s captain, a responsibility that now falls to Oram (Billy Crudup), whose wife Karine (Carmen Ejogo) is also a part of the crew. Also awake and looking to get the ship repaired and back on track are married couples Tennessee (Danny McBride) and Faris (Amy Seimetz), Lope (Demian Bichir) and Hallett (Nathaniel Dean), and Ricks (Jussie Smollett) and Upworth (Callie Hernandez). And then there’s Walter (Michael Fassbender), who, like David (also Fassbender) before him in Prometheus (and who we see, or at least see some version of, in the movie’s opening scene), is an android who had been running the ship while the humans slept. When Tennessee encounters a fragment of a strange transmission while making repairs outside the ship, Oram decides that they should check out the promising-looking planet from which it emanates. Once they get to this planet, which is covered in storms that interfere with signals and is notable for the appearance of wheat and the lack of animal noise, the humans don’t have to bumble around for long before people start to get infected with alienitis. Symptoms? Slime-covered stage prop bursting from your internal organs shortly after exposure. Prognosis? Not great. I’ll admit that I have no dog in this particular franchise-revival fight. I didn’t come in to the Alien movies until the end of the original run and have not had the will to go back
AT THE MULTIPLEX
and revisit with more than a casual viewing of the original few movies that won so much acclaim. Faced with such eye-roll-y fare as Alien: Resurrection and Prometheus, I find myself thinking rather fondly of Alien Vs. Predator. I know, I know, I’ll get around to the 1979 original some day. But this movie is not making that desire to catch up any stronger. Even without having seen the first two movies, I know exactly what is going to happen at all points in this movie. From its opening scene of David talking with his creator/Weyland corporation founder Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) through the world’s most obvious reveal in its final moments, this movie doesn’t veer from a well-worn path. Age down the crew by 15 to 20 years and replace “space ship” with “an old fishing cabin in the woods” and this movie becomes indistinguishable from, like, 50 percent of horror movies. And, sure, this is because Alien is a formative horror film from which so many films take direction. But this Alien movie doesn’t do anything new with the genre, with the continuing story or with the general form. And sure, one could probably make a similar argument about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, another continuation of a 1970s sci-fi property. But my counter would be that at least that movie is, on its own merits, a fun adventure with moments of both levity and nifty action. I can judge Alien: Covenant pretty much only on its own merits

fresh-seeming as the original outing, this continuing adventure of the misfit universe savers has its moments of comedy and solid action. BSnatched (R) Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn. I get that “R-rated lady comedy” is the point of this tale of a mother and daughter who are kidnapped during their already imperfect South American vacation but only the scenes of Ike Barinholtz as a man-baby and Bashir Salahuddin as a
— and it really doesn’t have many of those. C Rated R for sci-fi violence, bloody images, language and some sexuality/nudity. Directed by Ridley Scott with a screenplay by John Logan and Dante Harper, Alien: Covenant is two hours and two minutes long and distributed by 20th Century Fox.
Everything, Everything (PG-13)
A girl who can’t leave her house falls in love with her new neighbor in Everything, Everything, a YA romance (adapted from a YA novel).
Maddy Whittier (Amandla Stenberg) has such a weak immune system that she can’t leave her air-lock-having, HEPA-filtered, contamination-free house. (Though, this open-concept, impeccably decorated home is not the worst place to be stuck.) Her only inperson companions are her mom, Dr. Pauline Whittier (Anika Noni Rose); her nurse, Carla (Ana de la Reguera), and Carla’s daughter, Rosa (Danube Hermosillo), who is headed off to college. As the 18-year-old Maddy would be, if her life wasn’t lived almost entirely through the internet, where she takes architecture classes and posts one-sentence reviews of books. Enter boy. Olly (Nick Robinson) and his family move in next door to the Whittiers and he becomes intrigued with the girl he sees looking at him through the window. Maddy and Olly soon
state department employee trying to explain that there is no A-Team have the right amount of truthful weirdness to really work. The rest of the humor feels very processed and flavorless. C King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (PG-13) Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law. Did Camelot really have this much kung fu and this many guys named Mike? I’m not sure but the Guy Ritchie-er elements of this Guy Ritchie
start texting and chatting on the phone, conversations that the movie cleverly depicts by putting the two inside Maddy’s architectural models. Eventually, though, texting isn’t good enough and Maddy wants to meet Olly in person, even though the presence of Olly, and all of his outside germs, carries the risk of serious infection. Even before I heard the girls behind me in the theater gasp when Olly tells Maddy he loves her I knew that: (a) I am probably not the audience for this movie but (b) for this movie’s intended audience, it works just fine. Sure, there’s something a little dippy about much of the dialogue — in fairness, not vampire-boyfriend dippy — and I feel like Stenberg and Robinson could really use a whole season of a CW show to grow into these roles. But overall, these actors are fine, the movie is fine, their romance is romantic and just fine. As with adult romance movies, the real estate and clothing is spectacular — the sun room complete with, like, river-stone wall fountain and giant windows is the stuff of “when we win the lottery” dreams — and aggressively aspirational but then again such is the case with all of those Nicholas Sparks movies so, fine. Actually, Stenberg is probably better than fine, or would be if she could get some more interesting material to work with. For what she’s given, she does make Maddy seem like something of a real person — not a victim or a wimp or an unrealistic superhero. Since it’s hard, in modern life, to find a reason to keep people apart in romances, I forgive the movie for its plot weaknesses. Some aspects of Maddy’s illness and the rules surrounding it that don’t completely make sense (especially when we see how resourceful she is later on) but I doubt that will bother any person of the right age who just wants to see attractive people flirt and fall in love, which they do here, just fine. BRated PG-13 for thematic elements and brief sensuality. Directed by Stella Meghie with a screenplay by J. Mills Goodloe (from the novel by Nicola Yoon), Everything, Everything is an hour and 36 minutes long and distributed by Warner Brothers.
take on the King Arthur story are by far the most entertaining parts of this totally OK movie that you will probably enjoy watching on the sofa some Sunday afternoon three months from now. Charlie Hunnam has the makings of a fun action movie star but he’ll need something other than this movie to get him there. C+ *The Fate of the Furious (PG-13) Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson. Also Jason Statham, Michelle
Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Luke Owen, Charlize Theron and, for no particular reason other than it’s kind of entertaining, Helen Mirren. Is this a good movie? No. Is it a fun movie? That probably depends on whether you think flaming cars racing backward, a submarine chasing a car, Statham and Johnson exchanging insults and a character being called “Little Nobody” is fun. (The correct answer, by the way, is yes, yes these things are fun.) B-

By Michael Witthaus
• Uncanny: Musicians who backed Joe Cocker on tour and in the studio now perform as Cocker Rocks, featuring English vocalist Elliott Tuffin as a more than able stand-in for the legend who drove hits like “Hitchcock Railway” and “Up Where We Belong” and permanently claimed The Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends” as his own. Go Thursday, May 25, at 7:30 p.m., Flying Monkey Movie House & Performance Center, 39 Main St., Plymouth. Tickets are $24 to $29 at flyingmonkeynh.com. • Clarity: Running all of Memorial Day weekend, the 22nd annual Half Moon Sober Festival has workshops on spiritual healing and avoiding self-defeating behavior, along with sports and family activities.

George Thorogood comes to Concord By Michael Witthaus
and you’re done, but with pool it’s not quite that easy.
George Thorogood and The Destroyers’ June 4 show at Concord’s Capitol Center is part of their Rock Party tour, named for his forthcoming album, Party of One. Due for summer release, it’s Thorogood’s first solo effort and marks a return to the label that launched his career in the 1970s, Rounder Records. Thorogood called the mostly acoustic LP “long overdue” in a recent phone interview, saying it “should have been the first record I did, because a lot of people start that way — Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen — then move into the electric scene.” A recent interview touched on a range of topics, from early success with obscure songs by American rock and blues heroes, to how many of his own hits were written with others in mind, including the career-defining “Bad to the Bone,” and why he stays energized entering his fifth decade of performing.
How did Bo Diddly end up participating — was that your move? I can’t remember if I or the record label suggested him, but we wanted to make a mini movie [like] Magnificent Seven or Good, Bad and the Ugly, that kind of thing; the guy with the big reputation, the bad guy. Then the kid comes to town and shoots him down. Bo’s really into that thing and he totally ran with it, he loved the whole idea, wearing the sheriff’s hat and all that, western clothes. Bo Diddly is a gunslinger, right?
How are you motivated to keep playing; what makes it exciting? Numerous things — No. 1 is that it’s still fun. When that ends, you should hang it up, because that’s why you do it to begin with ... I always go with the three Ds: desire, demand and delivery. Do people still want to see us? … Are you still delivering as good as ever? Have you seen The Who or Tom Jones lately? Unbelievable! Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend couldn’t come up for air. As long as there is delivery there — you don’t want to rip people off, do you? Early on, you put your own stamp on overlooked songs you felt fans should know. What was your selection process? The Rolling Stones, John Hammond, ButGeorge Thorogood and the Destroyers When: Sunday, June 4, 7:30 p.m. Where: Capitol Center for the Arts, 44 S.

Many of your own songs were envisioned for others — “I Drink Alone” for George Jones, “Bad to the Bone” for Muddy Waters or Bo Diddley — why did you try to give your best stuff away? I like my material to have an air of familiarity when people hear it ... I heard another artist when I was putting it together; a lot of people do that. ... When the Beatles wrote “All I Gotta Do,” they were probably thinking the Everly Brothers, because it sounds like ‘em. I wrote “Oklahoma Sweetheart” and said, “we gotta get this to Merle Haggard.” That never happened — not any of them. I thought, “don’t people know I exist?
terfield Band [and] people like that … did the same thing I did, or I did the same thing they did, I should say. What they did in the ’60s, I was doing in the early ’70s. But the list was kind of picked over and I found 20, 25 songs that I felt were good ones. I thought it would be great if other bands had done some of these songs — I would have loved to have heard Tom Waits or Elvin Bishop do “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” … when the first two albums came out, we made a lot of noise, because no one had ever heard those songs. Even some of the people who recorded them originally, they never remembered them. They said, “That sounds like me,” and I You’ve said only a few people are left said “It is you — you did it back in ’61, don’t doing what you do, naming ZZ Top’s Billy you remember?” Gibbons. Do you still feel that way? Billy Gibbons and I have a mutual underWhat are your memories of making the standing … we are from the same school. video for “Bad to the Bone?” Johnny Winter, Billy and I did the same thing MTV was jumping all over the place — we went crazy over Bo Diddly and Muddy and I just hooked up with a major label. Waters and formed a guitar style around those This was my chance; the demand was big- dudes. The thing that Billy’s got that I haven’t ger than the supply …I wanted to make it got is “LaGrange” and a beard … the farthest a card game, not a pool game — like Cin- I ever got was “Move It On Over” and “Bad cinnati Kid with Steve McQueen, and they to the Bone,” which isn’t too bad [but] people said, no, we want to do pool like The Hus- will say, why didn’t I become as big as Billy tler with Paul Newman. I said, well one Gibbons, and I’ll say, because “Legs” sold 15 or the other is cool, it’s got that tongue in billion records. It’s that simple, it’s not a myscheek macho thing … but I can’t shoot tery … but we stretched five songs over 40 pool. You can fake it with cards. … A years, and that in itself is a miracle.

SIGNS OF LIFE wider field of employment ... and to the ballot for the protection of her rights. Don’t let yourself get distracted. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) Mrs. Stanton had the intellectual, and Susan the executive,, ability to carry forward the movement …. They helped and strengthened each other, and together they have accomplished great things for woman and humanity. Working together is the key. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Men argue as though, if women had the right to vote, they would all abandon their homes and their babies, and stand at the polls from year’s end to year’s end and do nothing but vote. The fact that you can do something doesn’t mean you have to do it all the time. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) As soon as it became known that I was wearing the new dress, letters came pouring in upon me by hundreds from women all over the country making inquiries about the dress and asking for patterns — showing how ready and anxious women were to throw off the burden of long, heavy skirts. Throw off the burden. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) It is no more true that every woman was made to be a cook and a washer of dishes and clothes, than that every man was made to be a wood sawyer and a ditch digger. Don’t saw wood unless you want to. Aries (March 21 – April 19) It is not a great many years since women sculptors were unknown, because women’s talent was not encouraged. You may discover hidden talents. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) I considered my own feelings and inclinations and judgment … never dreaming but I had the same right to doff that I had to don it, and not expecting to be accountable for my doings, or required to give a reason to every one that asked me. You don’t owe anyone an explanation.

Quotes are from Amelia Bloomer, born May 27, 1818. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) At the outset, I had no idea of fully adopting the style; no thought of setting a fashion; no thought that my action would create an excitement throughout the civilized world, and give to the style my name and the credit due Mrs. Miller. Could you be inadvertently setting a fashion? Cancer (June 21 – July 22) We believe that most women are capable of taking care of their own property, and that they have the right to hold it, and to dispose of it as they please, man’s decision to the contrary notwithstanding. Joint ownership might get tricky. Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) [Our] furniture consisted of two old wooden chairs, an old table, a bed made on the floor, and three trunks. The bedstead lent us with the bed went together with screws, but as the screws could not be found the bedstead was useless and the bed had to lie on the floor. Do what you can with what you’ve got. Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Men have particular branches of business ... and never attempt to carry on three or four trades at the same time. Housekeeping comprises at least three trades, that of cook, laundress and seamstress, to which might be added that of house cleaning; and yet it is expected of woman that she will single-handed successfully carry on these various trades, and at the same time bear and rear children and teach them to become great and good. You might need to do more than one thing. Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) In deciding upon what is appropriate or inappropriate for individuals or classes the community is exceedingly capricious. They’ll come around. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) We all felt that the dress was drawing attention from what we thought of far greater importance — the question of woman’s right to better education, to a

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
o ati oc L w
Officials in charge of a Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal heritage site recently installed “speed bumps,” similar to those familiar to Americans driving residential streets but on a pedestrian walkway, with row upon row of risers to resemble a washboard. A Western travel writer, along with editors of People’s Daily China, suggested that officials were irked that “disorderly” tourists had been walking past the ancient grounds too rapidly to appreciate its beauty or context.

• Compared to busy coastal metropolises, Indiana may evoke repose, and entrepreneur Tom Battista is suggesting the state’s largest city capitalize on the sentiment by reserving a destination site on a low-lying hill overlooking the chaotic merge lanes of two interstate highways affording visitors leisurely moments watching the frantic motorists scrambling below. He plans three rows of seats and a sunshade for the relaxed gawkers to take in the “ocean”-like roar and imagine overwrought drivers’ rising blood pressure (while their own remains soothingly calm). • Several treatments are available to combat the heart arrhythmia “atrial fibrillation,” but all require medical supervision, which John Griffin, 69, said he tried to acquire at the emergency room at New Zealand’s Waikato Hospital in April, only to be met with delay and frustration. Griffin went home that day, took notice of his neighbor’s 8,000-volt electric security fence and, with boots off, in a fit of do-it-yourself desperation, nudged it with his arm. He got quite a jolt, he said, but he walked away, and his heart returned to natural rhythm. The medical director of the Heart Foundation of New Zealand said Griffin was lucky and warned against the “procedure.”

Medical researchers have been frustrated for years at failures in getting certain cancer-fighting drugs to reach targeted areas in women’s reproductive tracts, but doctors in Germany announced in April a bold technique that appeared to work: sending the drugs via sperm cells, which seem to roam without obstruction as they search for an egg. The process involves coating active sperm cells with an iron adhesive and magnetically steering them to their internal targets. • Sean Clemens, now awaiting trial in Liberty, Ohio, in the death of an 84-yearold woman, allegedly confessed his guilt to a co-worker after telling the man that something was bothering him that he needed to tell someone about but only if the co-worker would “pinkie-swear” not to tell anyone else. (The co-worker broke the code.) • In the course of pursuing claims against
Alaskan dentist Seth Lookhart for Medicaid fraud, government investigators found a video on his phone of him extracting a sedated patient’s tooth while riding on a hoverboard. (He had apparently sent the video to his office manager under the title “New Standard of Care.”) Lookhart had been indicted in 2016 for billing Medicaid $1.8 million for unnecessary patient sedations.
In April, Tennessee state representative Mike Stewart, aiming to make a point about the state’s lax gun-sales laws and piggybacking onto the cuddly feeling people have about children’s curbside lemonade stands, set up a combination stand on Nashville’s Capitol Hill, offering for sale lemonade, cookies and an AK-47 assault rifle (with a sign reading “No Background Check,” to distinguish the private-sale AK-47 from one purchased from a federally licensed dealer). (In fact, some states still regulate lemonade stands more than gun sales by nettlesome “health department” and anti-competitive rules and licensing, though Tennessee allows the stands in most neighborhoods as long as they are small and operated infrequently.)
(1) The Wall Street Journal reported in February that among the most popular diversions when Syrian households gather to escape the country’s bombs and bullets is playing the Hasbro war board game Risk (even though the game’s default version contains only five armies not nearly enough to simulate the many Syrian factions now fighting). (2) The parliament of Australia’s New South Wales, entertaining a February citizen petition to cut
societal “waste,” admitted that the petition’s required 107,000 signatures (already on a USB stick) would, by rule, have to be submitted in hard copy (4,000 pages), even though the pages would immediately be electronically scanned into a format for data storage.
People different from us
In March, an electrician on a service call at a public restroom in Usuki, Japan, discovered a crawlspace above the urinal area, which had apparently been a man’s home (with a space heater, gas stove and clothing). Investigators learned that Takashi Yamanouchi, 54, a homeless wanderer, had been living there continuously for three years and had arranged everything very tidily, including the 300-plus plastic two-liter bottles of his urine. (It was unclear why he was storing his urine when he resided above a public restroom.)
Least competent criminals
• In March, WTTG-TV in Washington, D.C., broadcast surveillance video of a 7-Eleven armed robbery in the city’s northeast sector since some footage offered a clear picture of the suspect’s face. Moments into the robbery, the man peered upward, caught sight of the camera and, shocked, reached for his apparently forgotten ski mask on top of his head, where (better late than never) he pulled it into place. • In November, three teenagers were arrested after stealing superfast Dodge cars in the middle of the night from a dealership in St. Peters, Missouri. (After driving less than a mile, police said, the three had lost control of their cars, crashing them, including “totaling” two 700-horsepower Challenger Hellcats.) Visit weirduniverse.net.
