A couple weeks ago, we all turned our calendars to kick off the month of June. For many of us, this is the unofficial start of summer with Little League championships, high school graduations, and the promise of warmer days to come. You may have noticed the uptick in rainbows being displayed in advertising or on flags outside of businesses this month as well. That’s because June also signifies the official start of Pride month, a national movement to demonstrate commitment and solidarity for the LGBTQ community. As a gay woman, this outpouring of support brings a sense of peace and acceptance to my life that can often be forgotten throughout the year. And, a couple of years ago, June brought one of the most important moments in my life. June 26, 2015: For many, this was just a Friday in June. For me and millions of others, it was a huge victory on a national scale for equal rights under the law. On this date, just two months shy of my one-year wedding anniversary, the United States Supreme Court ruled to allow lesbian and gay couples across the country the freedom to marry. As a self-proclaimed “non-crier,” I remember being overcome with emotion as the news broke and supportive messages from friends and allies flooded in. With a renewed sense of hope and determination, the LGBTQ community had a new reason to celebrate Pride month in 2016. Before the month of celebration ended, we experienced the deadliest attack against the LGBT community in United States history. By the time this piece is published, one year will have passed since the deadly Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting on June 12, 2016. This horrific hate crime served as a brutal reminder of how far we still have to go for acceptance of all people in this nation. In stark contrast to one year before, I remember shedding tears of sorrow for all the lives lost that night due to hate. The gunman was a person who struggled with coming to terms with his own sexuality and decided to attack over 100 individuals who were out celebrating their own love and acceptance. As we have learned, a court ruling, a legislative vote or a ballot initiative will not create tolerance — only we, as a people, can do that. I feel so fortunate to live in a state like New Hampshire where the approximately 30,000 adults who identify as LGBTQ live with relative ease. The ultimate goal of this work and the community is to be accepted for who you are, where being gay is of no more significance than being born with brown eyes or flat feet.

NEWS & NOTES Electric rates

GOP leaders in the Senate are proposing an amendment that would repeal the electric consumption tax by fiscal year 2019 and create a study committee to look into the state’s biomass industry in fiscal year 2018. According to a press release, Senate President Chuck Morse and Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley said in a joint statement that New Hampshire’s energy costs are 40 percent higher than most other states’. Working with Gov. Chris Sununu, they propose to eliminate the electric consumption tax as a way to lower electric rates for homeowners and businesses. Sununu also requested the biomass study committee. Proponents of the biomass industry in the state say the remaining plants are at risk of shutting down if sustainable energy regulations don’t change.

Political library

A career professional librarian donated 2,700 scholarly books on the U.S. presidency and historic events related to the office to the New Hampshire Political Library at Saint Anselm College. The collection donated by Dr. Arthur Young was unveiled in a dedication ceremony on June 9. According to college spokesperson Chip Underhill, the huge donation nearly filled the library’s shelving to capacity. “This special collection adds a crown jewel to New Hampshire Institute of Politics,” Neil Levesque, the institute’s director, said in a written statement. Young assembled the collection over 25 years, with books covering the first presidents through President Barack Obama. There are also books related to first families, vice presidents and Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

Trouble for Hope

Several former employees of Hope for NH Recovery, the state’s largest recovery center network, allege systemic dysfunction, cases of verbal abuse and drug use, according to a story by NHPR. Former recovery coach Michelle Parenteau was employed at the Claremont center for eight months until she resigned in February. She filed official complaints with coun-

HIPPO | JUNE 15 - 21, 2017 | PAGE 4

ty and state regulators describing verbal abuse by people in leadership positions, sexual harassment and loose hiring practices that led to high turnover. Parenteau, who is six years in recovery, alleged Hope would hire fellow recovery coaches who were only 30 days in recovery. Other former employees told NHPR that the organization was poorly run, and that it allegedly asked management at some centers to inflate its patient numbers. There were four complaints filed with the state, according to the story. Hope’s board chairman reportedly said they are taking the complaints seriously.

Boat law

A new law that went into effect Jan. 1 is aiming to prevent the spread of invasive aquatic plant species from one body of water to the next. The AP reported that the state is reminding boaters of the law, which prohibits the transport of invasive plants on trailers to the state’s various ponds, lakes and rivers. Violators will be subject to $200 fines. The state already has 74 infested lakes and 11 infested rivers.

Sununu in DC

According to Gov. Chris Sununu’s public schedule, he spent Monday, June 12, privately meeting with Trump administration officials in Washington, D.C. His first scheduled meeting was with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. He then met with FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, SBA Administrator Linda McMahon and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. He was set to meet with Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke in New Hampshire on June 13.

Criminal justice bills

A bipartisan bill signed by Gov. Chris Sununu will ensure indigent defendants will be appointed defense attorneys in cases where they can’t afford to pay their court fines. According to a press release from the governor’s office, other bills signed by Sununu would make it easier for women who become pregnant as a result of rape to terminate the parental rights of the rapist, would remove ignorance of age of a minor and “consent” as defenses in human trafficking cas-

es and would change definitions to better reflect the heinous nature of predatory crimes against children. Sununu also signed the rape shield law, which ensures the private, unrelated sexual histories of rape victims are not used against them in court.

Gov. Chris Sununu named public utilities commissioner Robert Scott to be the next commissioner of the Department of Environmental Services. The AP reported Scott’s term at the PUC expires next summer, and he wrote a letter to Sununu expressing his interest in running the department where he previously worked for nearly 20 years. Sununu had originally picked businessman Peter Kujawski to lead DES but withdrew his nomination after the Executive Council expressed concerns that he was too inexperienced. The Executive Council was set to vote on Scott’s nomination on June 15.


Two loons have reportedly died after ingesting lead fishing tackle in the state, the AP reported.

It’s illegal in the state to sell lead sinkers and jigs weighing one ounce or less or to use them in freshwater.

In fact, all the surveyors who come to us, consultants from around the country come to us and say, ‘You guys are doing amazing work. It’s just that it’s extremely costly,’” he said.

On June 5, the Crotched Mountain Specialty Hospital began a 90-day process of winding down operations, discharging patients and ultimately closing for good. Crotched Mountain CEO and President Michael Coughlin said the problems that led to this decision have been building up for over a decade. “It was an evolving recognition that The opioid effect something needed to happen as far back Another thing that’s changed in just the as 2000,” Coughlin said. past year has been a shift in the types of patients referred to the hospital.

Less staff at women’s prison How the current Senate budget could affect staffing By Ryan Lessard

Earlier this year, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu proposed a budget that would have funded operations at the new women’s prison in Concord — due to complete construction this fall — to the tune of $48.7 million in fiscal year 2018 and $49.8 million in 2019. That would have been enough to fully staff the prison, according to the state Department of Corrections, but the legislature had different ideas that will mean less staff at the prison.

Budget talks

On May 31, the GOP-led Senate passed its version of the state budget along party lines and Democrats voiced their dissent in public statements. Some, like Democratic Minority Leader Jeff Woodburn, said the budget creates an artificial surplus from unspent revenues to support the “ruse” that cutting taxes for the rich will grow revenues. Many pointed to things left out of the budget, like full-day kindergarten spending. But some of those are being addressed in separate legislation. What the initial comments largely didn’t address was funding for the women’s prison, which was lowered from the governor’s proposal by the House budget that failed to pass and then further lowered by the Senate. Almost $2 million was cut from the governor’s 2019 budget for the prison. Usually, the Senate spends more than the House, due to its traditionally higher revenue estimates. This year, that didn’t happen. Democratic Sen. Lou D’Allesandro of Manchester said Republicans in the Ways and Means Committee lowballed revenues, which he called “very unusual.” “I think we had $20 million more to work with,” D’Allesandro said. “If you look at the economic signs, they were all good. We have a very low unemployment rate, our business taxes are producing significant revenue, real estate transfer tax is good. … I cannot explain it.” As a result, prison spending went down. How lawmakers arrived at their revenue numbers is unclear, but there’s disagreement between House and Senate Republicans. Reached by phone June 13 during a break in budget talks, Republican Rep. Kenneth Weyler, who serves on the House Finance Committee, said reconciling that difference was still a challenge. “The last we heard, there’s still about a $40 million gap,” Weyler said.


Originally, the DOC had planned to increase staff from the 40 or so currently working at the Goffstown women’s prison to

about 117 by 2019 at the new prison. The new prison is twice the size of the old one and, once it’s built, DOC plans to move the women in Goffstown, plus the women at Strafford County Jail and at the Shea Farm Transitional Housing Unit in Concord, and the women they had to place out of state. “We need the staffing to make sure it’s run in a safe and secure way,” said DOC spokesman Jeff Lyons. He said when the House was drafting its budget, it had abolished about 20 nurse and correctional officer positions at the women’s prison. By the time it reached the Senate, budget writers appeared poised to do the same. “We were able to convince the Senate not to abolish them but to unfund them. Basically, what that means is we won’t have access to them during the coming biennium but the positions aren’t entirely lost,” Lyons said. For this biennium, the effect is about the same — 20 fewer employees to provide medical care and ensure inmate safety — but keeping them in the budget will make it easier to lobby for funding in the 2020-2021 budget. Weyler said the reduction in staff is based on the move to Concord being delayed and pointed to the request to extend the lease in Goffstown as evidence of that. He said it’s possible the new prison won’t be open until the next calendar year, so funding staff in the first fiscal year of this budget is not pressing. “Eventually, we will hire those people,” Weyler said. Lyons concedes that even if the DOC had the funding they asked for by the time they start moving inmates, they aren’t likely to have those positions filled. “All along, we’ve been having difficulty filling positions in the first place. So even if the [requested] budget was approved, we still can’t begin hiring until the beginning of the fiscal year,” Lyons said. While the prison facility is due to be ready by October, training corrections staff takes several weeks. Lyons said he can’t give a firm date for launch of operations at the prison. In the interim, having less staff will mean spending more on overtime, Lyons said. But there is a larger issue here: providing women with the same services male inmates get. That was the decades-old legal issue that led to the women’s prison in the first place. “The original intent behind the lawsuit that was filed … was that the women need to have parity with the males,” Lyons said. For D’Allesandro, that should make this project a priority. “The prison’s completion date had to be moved up because they needed more money to finish it, so it’s been a challenge all along and we should be doing it right,” D’Allesandro said.



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

First off, can you share a little bit of your background? I was born in Egypt but I’m Southern Sudanese. My family escaped South Sudan during the peak of its civil war and we sought refuge in Egypt. We had an opportunity to come to America — we chose New Hampshire — and we’ve been here since 2001 and haven’t looked back. How did you get into wealth management? I got into wealth management through my father. When we were in Egypt, he got a degree in economics and finance and, when we came to America, he wasn’t able to practice. I lived in the Elmwood projects and was surrounded by people with financial insecurity, so … it made me get into that field to really make an effort and make a change.

What’s the first thing people need to know about how to handle their money? The very first thing that people need to do is really treat it with high importance. I mean, the average person doesn’t know what they have in their savings. They don’t know what they’re invested in. They don’t necessarily know what they’re doing, and because of that, it’s why so many people in America are financially insecure. We take the time to really take care of our bodies, we go to the doctor, etc., but we don’t necessarily take the time to take a look at our credit scores, see how we can get it better, talk to our financial advisors or financial planners periodically to really maximize our efficiency or even do our best to learn ourselves what our financial advisors or planners are talking about. So it’s really just treating it with high importance, recognizing the fact that finance is going to play a big factor in our lives. It determines the schools that our kids go into, the streets that we live on, the kind of health that we have. What’s the biggest myth about money management? I think the biggest myth right now is everyone thinks they have it all figured out. At least the average person does. The average person thinks they can just go to Google or buy a book and get it all done but it’s not that simple. The wealthiest people that I work with have sometimes three advisors, but the averWHAT ARE YOU REALLY INTO RIGHT NOW?

Scot Langdon happening is you end photo. up really inefficient with the assets that we do have, the dollars that we are able to accumulate. And what ends up happening is that 40 years down the line, if you don’t end up doing anything, if you were being inefficient with your money and say you transferred what we called transfers of wealth, where people are losing a certain dollar amount every year because they haven’t [sought] professional advice and keep on making the same mistakes over and over again … over time, people can lose thousands of dollars because of opportunity costs, which … is if you lost a dollar, you not only lose that dollar, you also lost what that dollar could have earned you. What is the main thing a wealth manager can help with? A wealth manager is pretty different from a regular financial advisor in that they don’t just solely look at your finances. They look at the whole picture. A wealth manager is a person who is going to be working with your attorney, working with your accountant to basically not only build your assets but protect it and create it. Do you give different advice depending on how much money people have? Yes. What ends up happening is as you’re accumulating more wealth, your needs change because as you accumulate wealth, you get into different tax brackets, you get into different tax laws, you’re more concerned about really protecting it from creditors, you may be a business owner who has exposure to many lawsuits. … It’s different for everybody. … Someone with more moderate means, it’s very simple. Right now, I’m really reaching out to the graduate community, college graduates. … With them, we start with the fundamentals. We really make sure that they’re not necessarily taking what’s thrown at them on TV [at face value]. … and make a strategic plan for their whole lifetime. — Ryan Lessard

Celtics on the clock for NBA draft


The NBA draft is one week away and with the first overall pick your Boston Celtics are on the clock. So what’s it gonna be, Danny — pick or trade? And if pick, is Markelle Fultz really the guy? After Cleveland made it painfully obvious how big the gap is between the Cs and the Cavs, I wonder if the thinking of the brass has changed for how and, more importantly, when Danny Ainge thinks his team can realistically compete with the NBA’s two elite teams — in 2017-18, or as some believe, 2019-2020. If it’s the former, the pick may get traded. Choosing the latter strategy makes taking the best player available more likely. Either way, they’re more than a oneplayer fix away. To be a threat to Cleveland, they need to get a 20-point scorer to take the heat off Isaiah, a double-digit rebounder, and an anchor for the interior defense — where hopefully the last two come in the same guy. If I’m running things, here’s the plan: Unless a Trade is Too Good to Pass Up — The Keepers: Isaiah Thomas, Marcus Smart, Al Horford, Jaylen Brown, stashed 2016 first pick Ante Zizic, the 2017 and the 2018 Brooklyn picks. Available in Right Deal: Avery Bradley — reluctant, but the contracts of him and Isaiah are up at the same time and one probably goes anyway. Jae Crowder if Gordon Hayward is signed or Guerschon Yabusele if Hayward signed and Crowder’s not traded. Terry Rozier — his market value has grown. Time to Go: Kelly Olynyk — a restricted free agent who’s too inconsistent and after four years he is what he is. Plus, they need to get physically tougher and that’s not his game. Could be used in a sign and trade. Amir Johnson — a free agent. Tyler Zeller — his $8 million non-guaranteed contract could come in handy. Options and strategy: Plan A: (1) The 20-point scorer — I’m

more scoring from the big to be acquired, which would cost a lot more than the Plan A guys. Hassan Whiteside: A max contract guy and a bit of a lunatic. But he can block shots, rebound and scores 15 a game — but would come at a giant price and good-bye Avery. Kristaps Porzingis: I’m not in love with his spot up game and wonder about his defensive mobility. But he’s a young, readyon-Day 1 big who is a match-up nightmare that blocks shots, shoots from deep and scores 20 a night in a way complementary to Isaiah. He’s not the defensive fix I want, but if he can score on the block it’s a giant bonus. He’d cost the top pick, but will only make around $4 million for three more years, which might let them keep Bradley. Anthony Davis: More gettable in 2018 after the twin towers strategy doesn’t work. Regardless, New Orleans would have to be absolutely overwhelmed with the starting point being both Brooklyn picks. Steep, but maybe worth it. Blake Griffin: Only possible if Hayward isn’t signed. He’s always hurt, but free agents cost just money and he’s a major upgrade over Amir. DeMarcus Cousins: No team can be messed up more by a star with attitude issues than in basketball. See New York and Carmelo if you don’t believe me. Thus, I’d only get him if I could quickly flip him for more — which Danny does very well. Plan A and B: Harry Giles: Watch the high school tape and it’s like young Kevin Garnett — a lean 6’10” body with major hop and quickness who can run the floor, block shots, pass with vision and shooting range to 20 feet. Thanks to two torn ACLs already he’s a major risk. But Danny’s ammo lets him gamble in ways others can’t. So if he slides to 15, go, because if his knee strength returns, getting his talent at 15 is a worthwhile gamble. Email Dave Long at dlong@hippopress. com.

not sure it’s the slam dunk many think it is — go after Gordon Hayward in free agency. Getting a scorer in free agency leaves more ammo for a major trade later. (2) Rebounding big — Their boatload of player and draft assets can be used to overwhelm a team (if need be) for a difference-making doubledigit rebounder and defender. If he can score some on the block, bonus. (3) First overall pick — Use it on the best player available, which most say is Markelle Fultz. (4) Gamble — Find a way to get injury-risk but very talented Duke big Harry Giles if he drops to 15 or below. Plan A, fingers crossed version: (1) Kevin Durant instead of Hayward. Not very likely, but possible if KD opts to free agency after deciding piggybacking to win with a team that’s won before was nice. But he’d now rather lead a first-timer to the promised land. Everything else the same. The bigs targeted under this plan: Nerlens Noel: With Dirk on the back nine, Dallas is facing a rebuild and needs players. Noel is a nice start, but he’s only one guy and not a game-changer. He gives the Cs a younger, bigger, agile defender in the middle who can rebound, block shots and run the floor. Can he score more than Amir Johnson? Who can’t? A restricted free agent, so if the price is right, he’d probably come in a sign and trade where I expect the deal starts with Bradley. Marc Gasol: I love his defense and scoring. But he’s not a double-digit rebounder and is only a three- to four-year solution at 31. On the upside, he won’t cost either Brooklyn pick, so the one in 2018 can be used to find a replacement to groom as he declines. Andre Drummond: He’s big, a major rebounder and shot blocker, but a giant hit on the salary cap and horrendous foul shooter. Detroit would want more than he’s probably worth and it will be hard to match up the salaries. Plan B: Missing on Hayward necessitates

A championship weekend The Big Story: Champions were crowned all over the state this past weekend with too many to name in this limited space. Some came in dramatic fashion like Campbell over Belmont 6-5 in 10 innings. Some happened in heartbreaking fashion as Bedford saw a 1-0 lead disappear in the bottom of the seventh on two errors, and others were more like epic 1-2 seed battles between rivals like in boys’ lacrosse where BG downed Pinkerton 11-7 or the after-deadline ExeterBedford battle for the state baseball title.

How the profession has evolved People who do butchery work — slaughtering and processing meat — do exist in New Hampshire (for example, there’s Lemay & Sons in Goffstown) but they’re few and far between. “It’s not really butchery anymore — what the actual job is is what they call meat cutting. If I were to hire somebody coming in off the street, they wouldn’t apply for a butcher’s job. They would apply for a meat cutter’s job,” Steeves said.

By Kelly Sennott

New Hampshire butcher shops with meat hanging from the ceiling are history, said Billy Steeves, manager at the Prime Butcher in Hampstead. Instead, butchers today are kind of like curators, presenting quality beef, chicken and pork in the best way.

Becoming a butcher

Historically butchery was something you’d learn via an apprenticeship, but today people enter the vocation through many different doors. Some jump in because it’s a family business; the Prime Butcher, for example, is a fourth-generation enterprise, owned by Steve George Jr. (His father, Steve George Sr., owns the Prime Butcher in Windham, and his uncle, Christopher George, owns Mr. Steer Meats in Londonderry.) Steeves has a culinary background, having studied at Johnson & Wales University and worked at a restaurant before starting in Hampstead about seven years ago. Rob Darling, co-owner of Concord Beef and Seafood, said his butchery education happened while he was working in the seafood department at Dole & Bailey in Woburn, Mass. There, he befriended the “meat guys” before starting his Concord business with Al Smith and Michael Souffron 13 years ago. “I was lucky enough to work for a place where they’d let me wander into the cutting room, poke around and ask a ton of questions,” Darling said.

Goodbye to Rocky

In New Hampshire butcher shops, chances are good you won’t find animal parts hanging from the ceilings anymore — it’s not like Rocky, said Steeves. Butchers are no longer taking meat straight from the animal and preparing it for customers. Since the ’70s and ’80s, most local shops work from boxed meat ordered from western or midwestern processing facilities, vacuumsealed shut until ready to be cut and sold. “This way, not a scrap of the animal is wasted. The big meat companies, they get to make money off every little part they’re processing. With the individual butcher, we get just the parts we want. We’re not paying for the whole weight,” Darling said. (Plus, they don’t have to fill their cooler with a whole cow.)

“The art in what I do now is managing the business, which is the most challenging thing, because in the last five years beef prices have gone crazy, whether it’s because of the drought or the demand for beef rising overseas. It’s an expensive product,” Darling said. Attention to detail is important in today’s butcheries. Customers expect meat to be pristine, and so Steeves said many manhours go into trimming, tenderizing and marinating (via a vacuum tumbler, which marinates meats fast). There’s lots of backand-forth between vendors, with the goal of selling only the best, free of hormones. “Generally, grocery stores cater to the masses. We cater to people who are looking for something a little better, higher-quality. We deal exclusively with upper choice and prime grade meat,” Steeves said. But the stuff is expensive, and so running a butcher shop also means strategizing how much to buy and when to put it out. “Once you break the seal, time is ticking.

The beef is going to start to brown; you want to sell that within a day. We have super-tight controls over how many steaks are on the tray and when they’re open,” Darling said. Steeves said the Prime Butcher also offers cooking tips to customers. “Christmas is huge because a lot of people do prime rib — but they’ve never cooked prime rib. Or turkey. So I actually spend a lot of my days Christmas week with a Sharpie writing those directions right on the packaging,” he said.

Community shops

Probably most characteristic of these butcher shops is their small-town feel. “There’s definitely a community aspect to a butcher shop, which you don’t always get in a grocery store,” Darling said. “If you know the guy behind the counter, you know you’re not getting five-day-old beef. When you’re buying food, you want to be confident in the food you’re buying, especially if it’s something expensive like beef or fish. … And as a butcher shop, we need the support of the community. We can’t have people come in just once in a while.” Steeves said he knows many customers by their name or regular order. “You have to really like dealing with customers. A lot of our customers we see five times a week. … This is a small town. Everybody who’s driving, coming home from work, will stop in and say, ‘What looks good tonight?’” Steeves said. “It’s the same people, night in, night out, week in, week out. It’s cool. They get to know you, and you get to know them.”


Cuts from the cow and how to prepare them By Matt Ingersoll

erally aren’t as tender. “Tenderness and flavor are a little bit separate from each other,” he said. “You’re not going to be able to [grill] chuck steak cuts for 10 or 12 minutes … and expect to serve it tender as a [short loin] steak.” Other cuts include the flank and the brisket, which are located in the cow’s chest area. “The brisket … is a little bit of a fattier piece,” Perreault said. “That’s good for smoking and for slow cooking, and then farther down, where there’s less rib and a little less movement, you have the flank and the skirt, and those are good for grilling.” Along the hindquarter and back leg areas of the cow, cuts are divided into the top round, bottom round and eye round, located in the center. Below the round is the shank, a tender cut just above the leg bone. Perreault said a lack of fat in these cuts makes for good roasts, and the round cuts are also often used to make beef jerky. Muccini said some cuts that are not as widely available but can be special ordered include beef cheeks, or the meat from the facial muscles of the cow, and hanger steak, which comes from the animal’s diaphragm area, as well as inner organs like the liver and the kidneys. “We can’t sell them regularly all the time but we can always order it fresh for the customer,” he said. As for what you’ll pay, ground beef is going to be cheaper than some of the other bigger steak cuts; depending on how lean it is, it’ll go for around $5.99 or $6.99 per pound. Briskets are also at about $6.99 per pound. Ribeyes can go for around $15 to $16.99 per pound. Tenderloin steaks like filet mignon and short loin are pricier at about $24.99 per pound. “Basically the more tender or flavorful it is, the more you are going to pay for it,” spec he said.

From hamburgers to London broil steak, filet mignon to jerky, the meat from a cow provides dozens of variations of flavor and tenderness. Local butchers say these differences have mostly to do with the animal’s muscle usage in its body. “The muscles that the cow uses the most [to move around] often produce the tougher cuts, so those in turn require a longer and slower process of cooking,” said Craig Muccini, owner and general manager at The Flying Butcher in Amherst. “So you want to braise cuts from the leg and shoulder muscles, because they are worked hard, whereas something like a beef brisket you would want to put on a smoker.” Kyle Perreault, a butcher at Mr. Steer Meats & More in Londonderry, said shoulder clods of beef are great for hamburgers because the meat is usually very lean. Burger patties are prepared at Mr. Steer using a Hollymatic Super Patty machine. Owner Christopher George said patties are available either as singles through the front case or frozen in 4-ounce or 6-ounce boxes. “You don’t want to have the meat too lean, because the leaner you make it, the drier it is,” George said. “Between 85 and 90 percent lean is usually a good mark.” The chuck, a rectangular piece coming from parts of the cow’s shoulder and neck bones, is a cut Perreault recommends slow cooking for a period of time in a crockpot or a pot, due to its fat content. “Once you get farther down the chuck [on the animal’s body], you get to the short ribs and loins, which are awesome for braising,” Perreault said. “The short loin is also where you get your Porterhouse and T-Bone steaks, and the filet mignon actually comes off of the short loin as well. … The reason a filet is so tender and has very little fat is because there is really no movement; it’s all on the inside.” Muccini said chuck and short rib cuts are usually not the best to grill because they gen-

A chicken may be small, but it offers a variety when it comes to cuts. Most cuts above the belly, such as chicken breast, tenderloin and wings, are the white meat, while cuts below the belly, such as the drumsticks and thighs, constitute the dark meat. “There’s a little bit of a different flavoring,” said Moe Duncan, meat department manager at Quality Cash Market in Concord. “Typically, the darker meat is a little more on the dryer side where the breasts typically have more juice to them.” There are all kinds of ways to cook chicken; baking, broiling, deep frying and grilling are some of the most common ones. Baking is the easiest, Duncan said, because you can “set it and forget it,” whereas a method like deep frying requires more steps and preparation because of the oil and batter involved. Mainly, it’s about personal preference. “It comes down to how creative someone wants to be and how much time they’re willing to put into cooking,” Duncan said. The key thing to remember when cooking chicken is to make sure it’s cooked thoroughly. Use a thermometer, Duncan said, and keep it between 160 and 170 degrees. (The FDA website recommends that all chicken should be cooked to 165 degrees). Different cuts may require more time to cook than others, but Duncan said it’s easy to figure out once you’ve done it a couple times. “You can’t say how long [to cook it] because it really depends on the size and the weight of the meat, and on the type of oven you have,” he said “It’s a learn-by-trial-anderror thing. You’ll learn over time how long it takes to cook a chicken breast versus a chicken leg.”


Cuts of lamb meat can include lamb chops, rack, shank and leg and can be cut into smaller pieces and used for kabobs, stews and other dishes. Some cuts are fattier than others and can produce an excessive amount of grease if not cut properly. “A good piece will keep just a thin layer of fat on the edge so you don’t burn the meat, but it will have a dryer feel to it,” Duncan said. “Otherwise, if it’s not cut right, you’ll get a very greasy meat, and you’ll only taste the grease and the fat, not the meat itself.”

While lamb meat doesn’t have a lot of flavor on its own, it is a great conductor of added flavors and seasonings, so it’s better to season too little than too much. “You want to keep it light and simple,” Duncan said. “Stick to things like garlic and rosemary and maybe salt, but a very small amount.”


Pork includes a variety of cuts from a pig, such as pork chops, loin, roast, tenderloin and ribs. Ham, bacon and sausage also fall into the pork category. Different cuts carry different flavors and textures. “It depends where on the line you’re cutting [the meat],” Duncan said. “The pork chops in the center cut — that’s the sweet side. The fat on the edge gives it a sweet flavor, whereas tenderloin is a leaner piece of meat, so it has a more dry taste to it, but it’s still moist enough that it comes apart when you eat it.” There is also more flavor in a pork cut with the bone in than there is in a boneless cut, Duncan said, because the bone marrow, when cooked, adds flavor and moisture to the meat. Ribs are most commonly grilled and covered in a sweet or spicy barbecue sauce or seasoning. For pork chops and roasts, however, Duncan recommends baking or pan frying and going light with the seasoning. “Keep it simple,” he said. “You want a little seasoning and flavor, but you don’t want it to overbear the meat. If you’re going to spend the money on the meat, you want to be able to taste it and enjoy the real flavor of what you’re eating.”

Venison and buffalo

If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to beef, venison and buffalo are good options. You can do venison or buffalo burgers, steak, tacos, chili — basically anything that you can do with beef, but with a much lower fat content.

“[Buffalo is] very similar to beef,” said Brian Farmer, owner of Yankee Farmer’s Market in Warner, which offers buffalo and venison among its selection of meats. “A lot of people wouldn’t notice the difference, other than the lack of fat. They’d just say, ‘Oh, this is a great steak!’” Farm-raised venison is also similar to beef, except that cuts of venison meat tend to be a bit smaller. Wild venison, however, doesn’t have the controlled diet that farm-raised ven-

ison does, resulting in a stronger gamy flavor. Since there is little fat in venison and buffalo meat, they’re quick and easy to cook; meat is more dense than fat, Farmer said, so it’s better at holding in heat. “You have to train yourself not to overcook it and to [stop cooking] when it’s a little too rare, because by the time you get it on the table, it will be just about perfect,” he said. “Worst-case scenario, you [cook it] for a couple more minutes.”

a lot of citrus tones,” LaBelle said. Since she currently sells the spice blend separately, she said it can also be used as a rub or ground in a coffee grinder to create a super-fine “dusting agent.” “It makes the product more versatile,” LaBelle said. One of the advantages of using her marinade blend and locally made wine is the lack of additives in both. “For us, you’ve got the confidence of knowing … there’s no chemicals in the bottle,” LaBelle said. At The Tuckaway Tavern and Butchery in Raymond, general manager Bobby Marcotte said all their Tuckaway brand marinades are gluten-free. Both LaBelle and Marcotte agree that grocery store marinades are usually either too salty or too sweet. “It comes down to flavor, right? When you’re customizing and you’re coming up with flavors that you want to produce, you can really dial it in. Whereas I feel a lot of the stuff you buy in the grocery store is going to be one-tone, either sugar or salt,” Marcotte said. Tuckaway offers a variety of marinades, from teriyaki and Buffalo to its popular house blend. Marcotte said the house blend was actually a recipe carried on from the Yankee 17

Amy LaBelle, winemaker at LaBelle Winery in Amherst, says marinades serve two purposes: they soften the meat and improve its flavor. “Marinating is a way to elevate especially a tougher cut of meat,” LaBelle said. LaBelle sells a spice blend that, when mixed with olive oil and wine, serves as a marinade. She says wine is an acid between 3 and 4 pH, which helps with the softening process. There are dry citrus peels in her spice blend, which is also acidic. “And that is going to soften the fibers in the meat. So you’re all at once flavoring and softening, which is going to create a much better dining experience,” LaBelle said. She said cooking with wine is very common in French cuisine. “I lean toward French cuisine. I love French cuisine. I love the flavors in French cooking, but these spice blends that turn into marinade with the addition of wine and olive oil are really, I think, boldly American,” LaBelle said. In addition to making wine, LaBelle loves to cook, so she says creating a spice mix and marinade under “The Winemaker’s Kitchen” label was a natural evolution. “We’re considering doing the marinade as a pre-done bottle soon, but I like the fact that you can use the spice blend in many different ways,” LaBelle said. She sells three different spice blends designed to work with different proteins. One is for steak, one is used on pork and poultry and the last is for fish. For the steak marinade mix, she recommends mixing the spices with a red wine. The poultry mix works best with a white wine or the apple wine LaBelle makes with New Hampshire apples. For the fish marinade, she recommends a riesling or a seyval blanc. “The seyval blanc, in particular, is beautiful as a fish marinade because it itself has

15 Freetown Market, an old butcher shop that used to be in the same building. “Our house [blend] is obviously our most popular, so we try to keep that really as a stand-alone,” Marcotte said. “It’s really your standard Italian marinade but we kind of elevate the seasonings a little bit — elevate the garlic, elevate the pepper [to] make it really hit you in the mouth when you eat it.”

While Marcotte said the house blend is savory, the second favorite is the opposite. The Fat Boy marinade is made with corn syrup, molasses, ginger and brown sugar. “Our most popular proteins are definitely our steak tips [and] our No. 2 seller for steak tips would be our Fat Boy marinade, which is sweet and sticky,” Marcotte said.

ARTS Curious magic

Currier hosts exhibition featuring NH artist Varujan Boghosian By Kelly Sennott

Hanover artist Varujan Boghosian is very pleased with the show Currier Museum of Art curator Kurt Sundstrom put together — “The Curious Magic of Varujan Boghosian,” on view June 10 through Sept. 4. “You’ve done a wonderful job, covering a whole range,” Boghosian, now 92, told Sundstrom during a walk-through days before the opening; he’d driven almost an hour and a half that rainy day to inspect the comprehensive 60-piece show, and while he did skirt around the space with his cane to scratch in some corrections, he understood Sundstrom had no easy task. “I’ve had a retrospective, and many other shows, but this one is loaded! It covers a big range, from early watercolors to constructions to collages to recent work.” The exhibition draws from the artist’s collection, the Currier’s holdings and private Related events Creative Studio: Name Assemblage Saturday, July 8, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; explore the work of Varujan Boghosian and make your own assemblage with found objects, for adults and children; free admission this day for NH residents from 10 a.m. to noon Currier After Hours: Common Objects Reimagined Thursday, Aug. 3, from 6 to 9 p.m., celebrating NH artist Varujan Boghosian, with art-making activity, plus tour of the exhibition with curator Kurt Sundstrom, live music, food Creative Studio: Pun Making Saturday, Aug. 12, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., explore visual puns and smart juxtapositions in “The Curious Magic of Varujan Boghosian,” for adults and children; free admission this day for NH residents from 10 a.m. to noon

collections, and it contains all sorts of work — paintings, drawings, surrealist collages and assembled sculptures made of found objects, which are rich in references to art, mythology and literature. Some pieces date back to the 1950s, and some are brand new. “We really tried to bring a full representation of all the work he’s done. Watercolor, clay, drawings,” Sundstrom said. “One thing that’s hard about this is that you have to talk about surrealist things, but you don’t want to over-explain it, because then it’s no longer surrealist. Surrealist art should [consider] each individual’s own interpretation [with] equal validity. You have to give just enough information. … He’s probably the leading surrealist artist, anywhere. He just had a show in Paris.” (“The French love me,” Boghosian piped in.) Boghosian, the son of Armenian immigrants, was born in New Britain, Conn., in 1926. After serving in the Navy during World War II, he studied in Italy on a Fulbright Scholarship, then under Josef Albers at Yale School of Art and Architecture. Between 1963 and 1966, he exhibited in New York at the Stable Gallery at the same time as renowned artist Andy Warhol before moving to New Hampshire in 1968 to teach at Dartmouth College, which he did for nearly 30 years. Boghosian said he loves the Upper Valley’s fresh air, solitude and camaraderie; it’s home to so many creative people, including collage artists Marcus Ratliff, David Powell and Soo “The Curious Magic of Varujan Boghosian” Where: Currier Museum of Art, 150 Ash St., Manchester When: June 10 through Sept. 4 Admission: $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, $10 for students, $5 for youth, free for children 13 and younger Contact:, 669-6144

Sunny Park, whose “BioLath” exhibition is in the Currier the next gallery over. The region’s also perfect for collecting, which he does most every day. One of his favorite sites is the Antiques Collaborative in Quechee, Vermont. “I’m not inspired. I just work,” Boghosian said. “However, if I find something special as I’m looking around, that’s always exciting. You know: a three-dimensional object, a strange, rare piece of paper I can work with. Those are exciting finds. It’s like a gold mine out there.” It’s been more than 60 years since he began collecting items for his collages, but he still can’t say what it is that draws him to an item. He just knows. “That’s the very key question! The working process is intuitive, accidental and calculated. … I’ve been doing it so long that when I walk into a space where there are objects for sale, I almost immediately know what I might be able to use in my work,” said Boghosian, who was particularly happy about some recent additions to his collection — a

book on Salvador Dali, a Spanish surrealist artist he admires, and a primitive slingshot he thinks would be great for a David and Goliath-themed piece. At the time, he was preparing a presentation at the museum, which happened June 11. His goal, as always, was to be funny, not boring. “When I ended my classes, I said, ‘You will never remember anything I have said. And I don’t think I’ve said anything here!’ … As a teacher, you talk a lot, but I’ll try not to be boring. I enjoy a nice dialogue,” said Boghosian, who noted that he recently began re-reading Death in Venice by Thomas Mann and finds it a bit excessive. “I’m at the point now where I just like to read the summary, you know? … That’s why some of these [collages] only have two elements. We’ve done away with the superfluous and gotten down to rock-bottom.” Alongside each piece is text to give you hints at his references. Many tell of the tragic love story of Orpheus and Eurydice, but sprinkled in are homages to prose by Franz Kafka and James Joyce, poetry by Blake and Dickinson. Many make direct references to famous artists. The most playful pieces are his “tchotchkies,” sculptures that bring together two seemingly different objects to create new meaning. (For example, a top pinned to a globe translates to “top of the world.”) The Currier last hosted a Boghosian retrospective under Mac Doty, director of the museum from 1977 to 1987, but staff liked the idea of bringing the local artist back to Manchester because of his long ties to the Currier; he taught there in the late ’50s. “But he’s also a really nice guy,” said Sundstrom, who added that many artists work as long as Boghosian, but not all create new work the whole time. “A lot of them just repeat what they did that got them famous 50 or 60 years ago. He’s exploring this whole new thing.”

Manchester native James Tebbetts signed up for his first flute lesson with the Manchester Community Music School in 2005 at age 59. His motivation: retirement. “I figured, if I’m going to do something complicated [in retirement], which would be anything with a musical instrument, I’d better start now when I’m still working!” said Tebbetts, now 72, during an interview at the music school. Tebbetts, who’d been tinkering with the recorder on his own for years, took to music with excitement. After three years of lessons with Aubrie Dionne, he delved into piano and music theory with Justin McCarthy. When he discovered seniors could audit classes for free at Saint Anselm College, he registered for composition courses there and began writing his own music. When he retired from a career in software engineering in 2012, he delved in full-time. The fruits of his work are on display during a concert, “Colors Unseen,” featuring original compositions by Tebbetts at the Grace Episcopal Church in Manchester, Wednesday, June 21, at 7 p.m. Most performers are MCMS faculty members, including Harel Gietheim (cello), Kyoko Hida-Battaglia (oboe), Jennifer Larson (horn), Debbie Markow (violin), Elliott Markow (viola), Caresse Mailloux (flute), Justin McCarthy (piano) and Greg Newton (bassoon). It’s the third concert produced with MCMS featuring compositions by Tebbetts. Each event requires a great deal of effort on his part, but the effect is glorious. “Every dog has his day. That buzz takes a while to generate, but it lasts a while,” Tebbetts said. Tebbetts had been dreaming about delving into music for ages. As a kid, he remembers feeling awed by the Victory at Sea television series soundtrack, the way the music projected images and told a story through sound. As an adult, he was taken by hearing trumpeter Jay Daly play in downtown Boston in the late ’80s, causing him to purchase a recorder at Ted Herbert’s Music Mart and learn as many “Colors Unseen” Where: Grace Episcopal Church, 106 Lowell St., Manchester When: Wednesday, June 21, at 7 p.m. Admission: Free Contact: 664-4548,

songs as he could on his own. Normally, Tebbetts said, he doesn’t like talking about himself very much, but get him on the topic of music, and he’ll happily chat about music history and theory, and the movements and nuances in his own work. He loves the artistic freedom in composing his own music, and he dreams of someday writing a symphony. “[As an instrumentalist], you’re adding your own interpretation. Your own expression. How do I think this should be performed? However, you don’t select the notes. You do not define the melody,” Tebbetts said. “If you’re the composer … [you can] portray the image that is exactly in your mind.” Music School Executive Director Judy Teehan said the school has a growing population of adult students, but not many take composition seriously like Tebbetts. Several dabble in the art, and a few go slightly further than dabbling, but most focus on performance. Staff have told her they’re enjoying practicing Tebbett’s music. “I’ve heard lots of comments about how pleasant [the music] is … and about what a great opportunity it is for faculty members to be working on such a fresh project,” Teehan said. “I think it’s a really great collaboration. We’re all learners — I think all the faculty would agree with me on this — and as we teach our instruments, we learn from our students. And this collaboration is a great example.”

The idea to build an auto racing history museum at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon — to share the stories of some of New England’s most iconic racecars and racers behind the wheel — goes back more than a decade. “Vic Yerardi, who oversaw the Vintage Celebration [at the Speedway] for years … came to me and said that he was concerned that New England’s motor sports history was leaving,” museum President Dick Berggren said. “He said that when people die, there’s no place for their photographs, there’s no place for their cars, and so the photographs would get thrown away and the cars … would be sold for private collections. … So he wanted to have a place where it could all be saved and the history could be shared with the general public.” Now, that place exists. The North East Motor Sports Museum opened to the public June 12. The nearly 10,000-square-foot building Museum membership options Paid memberships are available by signing up at All members receive an emailed newsletter.

contains vintage race cars, motorcycles, a snowmobile, dozens of trophies in a 25-foot-long display case, thousands of historic photographs, a library and research center with hundreds of books, magazines and much more. “These were people who, by doing motor sports here in New England, reached fame, a few of whom reached fortune and some of whom died trying … and their stories needed to be preserved,” Berggren said. Berggren traveled the country to other auto racing museums and asked for their advice on how to successfully undertake such a project. From these trips, he learned the importance of not taking on any debt — and as a result, the museum will open debt-free, part of a collaborative effort by its more than 600 paid members who have helped donate everything from books to lights to trophy cases. The building itself was constructed specifically for the museum, as part of a deal Berggren reached with the Speedway to have it there for 90 years at just $1 per year. Visitors will encounter vintage cars that have won big races either at New Hampshire Motor Speedway or at other major tracks across the country, with some accompanied by the trophies that were won and the uniforms and helmets those racers wore. Some cars have

also appeared at past Vintage Celebration events at the Speedway. The oldest car at the museum raced more than a century ago, a 1915 Duesenberg that finished second in the 1916 Indy 500 — then just the sixth running of the race — by Wilbur D’Alene. The car is currently owned by Joe Freeman, founder of the Boston-based Racemaker Press and second vice president of the museum. Other exhibits include the car driven by Connecticut racer Joey Logano that won the 2009 Sprint Cup Series at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. At just 19 years old, Logano had become the youngest winner ever in the race series. The trophy he won and the uniform he wore during the race are included in the exhibit, shelved just behind his car. The winner of the first and only “Sno Bowl” snowmobile race held at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in February 2010 is also on display. The Yamaha SX Viper 700 was built and driven by Belmont resident Erik Ouellette, who reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour during the race. The museum’s library contains hundreds of some of the rarest books and print magazines on auto racing, including the complete collection of Speed Age, the first auto racing magazine to be published in America, which was in circula-

tion during the late 1940s and early 1950s. Berggren said displays are expected to be swapped frequently, including with the ProNyne Motor Sports Museum in Pawtucket, R.I., a museum he said is more centric to racers from Rhode Island. “We have enough stuff to fill a couple more buildings just like this,” he said. “We’ve already got stuff from other museums on our floor, and we certainly want ProNyne to be an active part of what we’re doing here. … No doubt we’re going to be moving cars back and forth.” Some adjustments may be made to the museum’s hours of operation following its opening week, according to Berggren, depending on how it is received. “There is a story behind every car,” he said. “We’re excited to preserve the history of this race track just because it has meant so much to New England.”

If weeds are the bane of the gardener, mulch is the gardener’s friend. Not only that, mulch can hold in moisture in dry times, and give a nice, tidy look to the garden. Let’s start in the vegetable garden. Properly mulched, weeding can be minimal — say an hour a week for a big garden like mine. I keep down weeds in my walkways and around all large plants like tomatoes with a one-two punch: a layer of newspapers (4 to 6 pages thick) and a layer of straw or mulch hay (4 to 6 inches thick before it packs down). What is the difference between mulch hay and straw? Price, for starters. You can easily pay $8 to $10 a bale for straw, and as little as $2 or $3 for hay. Why is that? Straw is grown as a crop specifically sold as mulch, and it has no seeds. You might see what appear to be seed heads, but they are empty as the farmer grows rye, then cuts it before pollination takes place. Hay is a waste product: food for dairy cows that got rained on, and is no longer edible. Picky eaters, those dairy cows. And it has plenty of seeds. The newspapers I put beneath it generally keep hay seeds from growing in the garden. But some seeds will escape and grow, particularly in the spring of Year 2 unless you did a phenomenal job of cleaning up in the fall. Many gardeners use black landscape fabric in the flower garden, covered with bark mulch or wood chips. The fabric is a good barrier, though the roots of some weeds and grasses can get through it, making it difficult to remove. Other gardeners use bark mulch directly on the soil, and that can be effective, too. If you use wood chips or bark mulch, be sure not to place too thick a layer down. Two to three inches is good, 4 to 6 inches is bad — the mulch will keep a quick rain shower from getting moisture to the roots of your plants. Some gardeners worry about bark mulch stealing nitrogen from the soil as it breaks down. Don’t. Yes, the microorganisms that break down the mulch need some nitrogen, but I have never seen plant leaves turn yellow (the sign of nitrogen deficiency) because of mulch. Or if you must worry, just put a layer of slow-release organic fertilizer on the soil beneath the mulch. You can buy wood chips or ground bark mulch in bags or by the truckload. Buying it by the bag is convenient if you just need a little, but it is much more expensive that way. If buying wood chips by the bag, read the label. If it says “color enhanced,” I would avoid it. It means the chips have been dyed, and I am an organic gardener who does not want chemicals. I have heard that some cheap

Hay and newspapers as mulch. Henry Homeyer photo.

wood chips are actually construction waste that has been chipped and dyed — old 2-by4s and the like. I like ground hemlock because of the color, and the fact that it tends to last longer than some others (except cedar, but I have only found that for sale in bags). I buy the hemlock by the pickup-truck load. And please, for the health of your trees, do not create “mulch volcanos.” To keep down weeds some gardeners pile wood chips right up against the trunks of trees in a volcano shape. The wood chips may harbor fungi and bacteria that can attack the bark of your precious tree, eventually killing it in 6 to 10 years. Instead of a volcano, create a “donut.” Leave 3 or 4 inches of space between the tree and the mulch. My favorite mulch? Fall leaves that have been run over by a lawn mower, then raked and stored for the spring. Full of goodness for the soil, and a good deterrent to weeds. Over the years, leaves will enrich your soil considerably. And they’re free! Cocoa mulch is sold as a mulch, and I know some who love it. It has a very fine texture and looks nice. But it smells like chocolate chip cookies when it first goes down, and some dogs have been known to consume it — causing sickness and even death if one believes everything one reads on the internet. Chocolate products are bad for dogs. It also tends to mold, though that only lasts a week or so. It can be very slippery when wet; I advise against using it on a hillside. Buckwheat hulls are an alternative to cocoa mulch, but they are not sold in many garden centers. Like cocoa hulls, they are very fine textured and look very nice, but are very expensive compared to bark or wood chips. At the Chelsea Flower Show, which I attended recently in London, someone had quotes about gardening stenciled onto blank walls. One of my favorites was from Robert M. Pyle: “But make no mistake: the weeds will win. Nature bats last.” So mulch, but don’t expect to get a summer of weed-free gardening. Read Henry’s blog Email him at henry.homeyer@


Dear Donna, I am new to Nashua and saw your Treasure Hunt letters in the Hippo. When we moved here a few months ago I brought along a lovely old chair I’ve had for some time. It originally belonged to an elderly aunt who had both valuable antiques and everyday solid old furniture. It is not a very heavy chair, but I love the look of it. The chair has a fair amount of carving in it, and the original red leather seat cushion is worn in the corners. The arms are loose and I considered trying to have it repaired, painting it and covering or replacing the seat. My sister suggested that I first find someone who can tell me whether it’s something special that I shouldn’t just shore up and paint! So, does this seem to be of any great value? If not, can you recommend someone who can tighten all the joints and repair it so that I can get on with my project and use this in our home? Clare from Nashua

probably useful in other ways. As far as changing it to fit your needs — do it! You want to continue using the chair, and if painting it will make that happen then I am all for it. It was a manufactured piece, not a hand-carved chair. If it were hand-carved then I would not suggest you change it. The value is in the range of $30 to a person who, like yourself, could use it. Gluing it is not hard if you want to try to do it yourself. They Dear Clare, sell a product called Chair-Loc at hardware It is always a good idea to check with some- stores.

How to find a car with all the safety bells and whistles Dear Car Talk: My dad is well into his 80s and is looking to get a new car to replace his VW diesel that was part of the VW dieselemissions settlement. We kids want him to get By Ray Magliozzi the safest vehicle out there, with as many automated features as possible (braking, correcting for drifting out of lanes, etc). He is looking at some mid-level Chevrolet product. My bias is for a Honda or Toyota product, like an Accord or Camry. My brother is pushing for a Mercedes-Benz, but they are, of course, very pricey. Dad wants something with good mileage, too. So, what car would you recommend that has the most advanced automated safety features in a mid-level sedan? — Jennifer I’m seeing Dad in a neon-green M1 Abrams tank. How’s that sound? And I think your brother’s just pushing for the Benz because he thinks he’s going to inherit it. Actually, you’re absolutely right to want Dad to have every possible current safety feature. We’d recommend forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking for everybody, not just those in their 80s whose reflexes have slowed down.

Those systems work by sensing slowing or stopped traffic in front of you. If the computer determines that you haven’t started to slow down or steer away soon enough, it concludes that you’re texting your bookie or otherwise not paying attention, and it sounds a warning. If you still don’t respond, it applies the brakes for you. These systems are preventing a lot of body repair, both automotive and human. Blind-spot monitoring is another musthave. As the name implies, a light on the side-view mirror or A-pillar tells you when there’s traffic coming up beside you so you don’t change lanes into a FedEx truck you didn’t notice. That’s great for everybody, but especially for older folks who don’t have that neck-twisting mobility they used to have to spin around and look over their shoulder while driving at 65 mph. So one place to start is at the website of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Here’s a list of its Top Safety Picks: iihs. org/iihs/ratings/TSP-List. You want a car that gets a “Top Safety Pick+” rating. That means it rates well not only for crash protection, but also for crash prevention. On that list, you’ll find the 2017 Camry, Accord, Chevy Volt and a bunch of other good options. So use the IIHS TSP+ label to create your shopping list.

And then help Dad find something he’s comfortable driving. If he’s comfortable and feels he can see well out of the car, maneuver it easily and control all of the basic functions intuitively, he’ll be safer. You may be biased toward a Honda or Toyota, but Dad may feel most comfortable in another Volkswagen, like the one he’d gotten used to; the 2017 VW Jetta is a TSP+. Or he may be unpleasantly surprised to find that newer cars almost all have lousy rear visibility, and he may want to gravitate toward something with especially good visibility, like the 2017 Subaru Forrester, also a TSP+. But as long as the car he likes has all of the preferred safety equipment (high- and low-speed forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and a good backup camera), and that equipment is rated well by IIHS, then I’d give him some leeway to find the car that feels right to him. Make sure the actual car he buys has all that stuff, since a lot of times it’s optional equipment. Don’t let anybody sell you a car on the lot by telling you you don’t need it. Dear Car Talk: I have a 1996 Buick Roadmaster, and it is almost impossible to fill with gas. When

attempting to fill the fuel tank, I must keep the nozzle at its lowest flow, and it still constantly clicks off. I had the fuel pump replaced several months ago, and the vent line was clear. Any thoughts on how to fix this? My wife refuses to drive it if it needs fuel. — Mark Nobody wants gasoline vapors escaping into the atmosphere, where they create smog. So your car, like all modern cars, has a fueltank ventilation system. Here’s how it works: When you fill up your tank, you have to push air out of the tank to make room for the new gasoline. But that air contains gasoline vapors. So there’s a vent valve in the tank that allows the air and vapors to be pushed out and stored temporarily in a charcoal canister. When you start the engine, that air and its vapors are sucked into the engine, where they’re combusted. My guess is that your vent valve stopped working sometime during President Barack Obama’s first term. So now, every time you try to put gas in the tank, the air is coming back up the filler neck instead of into the canister. That triggers the pressure switch in the gas pump, which shuts off the flow of fuel. Your mechanic can test the vent valve for you. If that’s the culprit, it’ll cost you about $100 to have it replaced. Visit

Each of the vendors donates an item to be raffled off, and raffle tickets are available for purchase during the event. Several participating farms will also be there for a small plant sale. “The vendors really run the gamut … of people running their own healing products,” Woods Kender said. “The Herbal Network was started by people who were enthusiastic about the Earth and using organic products whenever possible … and [Herb & Garden Day] is the crux of that.” Vendors include Wintergreen Botanicals of Allenstown selling herbal greeting cards and tea ware, the Concord-based Local Harvest CSA selling seedlings and vegetables, Misty Meadows Herbal Center of Lee selling skin, hair and home care products, and Sacred Tree Herbals of Meredith offering everything from syrups to soaps. A catered lunch of sandwiches, salads, herbal tea and more will be provided by The Crust & Crumb Baking Co. in Concord.

Herbalists, farmers and permaculturists sharing an enthusiasm of natural remedies and holistic healing practices will convene to present Herb & Garden Day Saturday, June 17, at the McLane Audubon Center in Concord. It’s the New Hampshire Herbal Network’s signature annual event, with dozens of local vendors and artisans, a full schedule of workshops and classes, a plant sale and more. “A lot of what we present is geared toward people who want to learn more about using natural medicines as opposed to chemical interventions,” said Sara Woods Kender, president of the New Hampshire Herbal Network. “It’s really all about empowering ourselves with our own health and expanding your tool sets for that.” This year’s theme is Cycles of Nature, with each of the classes focusing on harvesting through the four seasons, according to Woods Kender. Workshops will include a class on how to create your own medicine wheel garden, a class on how to plant and use garlic, and a class on using oils with flowers and plants to create unique skin care products, among others. Woods Kender said practices of Native American herbalism are also integrated into the classes. “Some other classes that go along with what we’ve learned from western herbalists are on why we make bone broth and what maladies can help from its nutritional value,” she said. “One of the other core classes is also on how to grow plants that specifically help you deal with stress and seasonal depression and things like that.” There will be opportunities for four different plant identification walks along several of the trails surrounding the Audubon Center. Participants will walk with one of the herbalists from the New Hampshire Herbal Network and learn about the plants found outside and the natural medicine within them. The walks will be held rain or shine, she said. Also included for the second consecutive year will be a reiki tent outside the center, where several reiki practitioners will provide an overview of the different types of techniques. “Reiki is a hands-on healing technique that has been passed down for generations from Tibet,” Woods Kender said. “It’s been shown to speed healing, and it’s great for relieving stress and past trauma, so our practitioners will be talking all about that

FOOD Ready for ribs

Barbecue, brews and more at Rock’n Ribfest By Angie Sykeny

News from the local food scene

By Angie Sykeny

Each Father’s Day weekend, Rock’n Ribfest brings thousands of people to the Anheuser-Busch Merrimack brewery for a weekend of music, craft beer and all things barbecue. The festival, now in its 15th year, will return Friday, June 16, through Sunday, June 18, and will feature nine professional barbecue vendors, known at the fest as “ribbers,” from all over North America. Ribbers will offer half and whole racks of ribs, pulled pork sandwiches and barbecued chicken, all with unique barbecue sauces, as well as sides like baked beans and coleslaw. Sauces may include hand-rubbed sauces, honey sauces, brown sugar sauces and other sauces with secret ingredients. “Each vendor has their special recipe they think makes their product the best,” Ribfest Committee Chairman Randy Smith said. “The key is the sauce, and how they marinate the ribs and apply the sauce so that the flavor really gets into the ribs.” For many of the ribbers, who travel to various barbecue events, Rock’n Ribfest is the culminating event of their summer. “It’s a huge event for them. They look forward to it,” Smith said. “We have some ribbers who have come every year for all

PoutineFest returns to Manchester

Father’s Day Cakes

By Angie Sykeny

A taste of Quebec is coming to Manchester as the Franco-American Centre hosts its second annual New Hampshire PoutineFest on Saturday, June 24. Eleven local restaurants, caterers and food trucks will serve a variety of traditional and inventive poutine dishes to hundreds of tasters at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium. “Generally, poutine is gravy, cheese curds and french fries,” event coordinator Tim Beaulieu said. “However, it’s like pizza. It’s been Americanized. People put different spins on it and mix it with foods from other cultures, and here [at the festival], you have a chance to sample them all.” Upon entry, tasters will receive passports with the vendors listed. They can get one three- to five-ounce sample from each vendor, getting their passports stamped as they go. Many of the vendors will serve poutine made with the traditional ingredients, but with some variations when it comes to the style of fries and type of gravy and cheese curds. “It’s like steak — everyone cooks it a little different,” Beaulieu said. “They can use chicken or beef [in the gravy] or they can do handcut fries, shoestring fries, sweet potato fries or even potato wedges.” Other vendors will deviate from the traditional poutine and incorporate other ingredients and cuisine styles. There will be a vegetarian falafel poutine, pulled pork poutine, duck confit poutine, smoky maple poutine and more. Many vendors will serve the same poutine they feature as a special or regular item on their menus. “A lot of restaurants have it or are starting to do it,” Beaulieu said. “It’s something you’ll see on menus more and more.”

Vendors will also be competing for the title of Best Poutine of the Fest and the chance to raise the “Ceinture de Championnat” or Championship Belt. The winner will be determined by a panel of judges including Denny Corriveau “The Wild Cheff” and other poutine experts, and by the attendees’ votes. The final hour of the festival will overlap with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats’ Franco-American Heritage Night baseball game, during which the players will wear “poutine jerseys” that will be raffled off after the game. Beaulieu encourages people to relax, pace themselves and enjoy a beer or soda between tastings. “There’s plenty of time, even if you want to try them all,” he said. “If you’ve never tried poutine, take this opportunity to try all the different types and get a feel for what kinds you like.”

Celebrate Father’s Day with lobster, beer sampling and puppies at the LobHopster Fest in Portsmouth, where British Beer Co. is setting out to break the world record for longest lobster roll. The event is happening from noon to 4 p.m. at Portwalk Place, and the highlight will be the 150-foot-long lobster roll filled with fresh New England lobster. “We have our artisan bakery, Pain D’Avignon, from the Cape putting together some rolls for us and we’re going to piece them together to make one contiguous 150-foot sub roll,” said Jason Narinian, a director of operations at British Beer Co. Two hundred pounds of coastal Maine cold water lobster meat will be mixed with mayonnaise, celery, lemon, sea salt, pepper and British Beer Co.’s signature Sympathy for the Devil hot sauce. This feast, despite its mass, will be prepared the morning of the event with a forecasted assembly time of just one hour. Event-goers can get a piece of the football-field-sized lobster roll for a $10 donation — much more affordable than the whole roll would be, if it were for sale. “If you get a 6-inch lobster roll, what do you usually pay — 20, 25 bucks? So, if you do 150 feet, that’s 300 lobster rolls, times $20, that’s $6,000,” Narinian said. Brewery representatives serving samples inside British Beer Co. will include Allagash, Banded Horn, Paulaner, Guinness, Jack’s Abby, Stoneface, Tuckermans, 603, Shipyard, 2 Roads, Newburyport Brewing and more. Beatles tribute band Walrus Gumboot will play throughout the event. “The band will be set up inside; we’ll have all of the windows and doors open, so you should be able to hear it on the street,” Narinian said. Giveaways from participating breweries and distributors will include T-shirts, hats and brewery trips. Along with the event, British Beer Co. will be serving a menu of lobster-centered specials all weekend long. “We’re going to do a lobster feature

menu [that will] have lobster mac and cheese, lobster flatbreads, and whatever chef comes up with for a lobster menu. We’ll probably have 10 to 12 lobster dishes as our specials menu for that weekend,” Narinian said. What else goes with lobster rolls and beer? Puppies, of course. Since proceeds from the LobHopster Fest will benefit the nonprofit organization Hero Pups, there will be about half a dozen puppies visiting the event. “We’re going to bring some of the younger ones,” Hero Pups founder and president Laura Barker said. “It’s also a really good deal — you get part of a lobster roll, and all the beer and swag and puppy kisses and music for 10 bucks. What better Father’s Day gift can you have?” Hero Pups aims to place therapy dogs with veterans and first responders. “We were trying to figure out a way to really support people in the community who are going above and beyond to benefit veterans,” Narinian said. “We wanted to do something with law enforcement or veterans, and Hero Pups does a lot for both, so we thought it was a perfect fit for us and our community outreach,” said Narinian. “We wanted to support people that are supporting the community themselves.” With the donations, they plan to buy new fencing for their dogs. “Every cent we raise goes to caring for these dogs,” Barker said. “It’s more expensive to use rescues than it would be to use some breeder dogs, but it’s our philosophy that we can help both ends of the leash this way and save two lives at a time.”

Kathleen Barlow discovered her passion for baking and decorating cakes while working in a grocery store bakery department when she was 15. In college, she studied French but continued to make cakes for her family and friends. Her culinary interests were affirmed while she was living in Belgium to improve her French language skills. There, she worked at a restaurant where she befriended the pastry chef, who introduced her to the art of French pastries. Six years ago, Barlow, who is now a French teacher, started her home custom cake and cupcake business, Milltown Cakes (6 McGettigan Road, Milford, 494-9120,, which she runs with Kathleen Barlow with husband her husband Brad and with help from her six children. Mill- Brad. town Cakes supplies more than 1,000 cupcakes for the Milford Pumpkin Festival each year, and it took home the People’s Choice Award for its “We Want S’Mores” cupcake at the 2015 Clash of the Cupcakes competition in Manchester.

salt to the sauce as it cooked, although a pinch of cumin couldn’t hurt, and if you like things extra spicy, throw in some chilis or chili powder for another kick. Alternatively, you could use a spicier enchilada sauce. Once the corn was warmed through, I turned the slow cooker down again. At this point, a lot of recipes called for cilantro and cheese. Since my husband is not a huge fan of my regular, very cheesy, enchiladas, I opted to add the cheese to only my portion before plating. I also skipped the cilantro. My husband and I went about eating these “enchiladas” in very different ways. I rolled mine, covered them in cheese, and tossed them under the broiler for about a minute. I’d recommend doing this before serving, i.e., rolling the enchiladas, covering in cheese and some extra sauce, and broiling or baking until the cheese is melted. On the other hand, my husband made a huge burrito-style wrap complete with chopped lettuce and sour cream and later had a bowl of the chicken and pepper mixture with a side of tortilla chips. Ultimately, this hodge-podge enchilada recipe is not authentic in any way, but that doesn’t change the fact that it was quick, pantry-friendly and delicious. — Lauren Mifsud

I’d like to take a minute to introduce you to possibly the least authentic, but still delicious, enchiladas I’ve ever made. And I’m only calling them enchiladas because I used red enchilada sauce and tortillas. This recipe was born of laziness. As the days grow longer, I hate spending time in the kitchen and often turn to slow cooker meals for a reprieve from time spent over the stove. While looking for new slow cooker recipes, I found several for enchiladas but none that I was that excited to try. I’m not a fan of beans or chilis, and the pictures of most of the finished products looked like mush. I decided I’d use enchiladas as my inspiration, but I didn’t stick too closely to any one recipe. In fact, the only thing my recipe had in common with most of them was the enchilada sauce. I started by salting some chicken breasts and tossing them in the slow cooker along with a chopped onion, and chopped red and green peppers. A can and a half of red enchilada sauce followed. I set it on high and walked away. About 3 hours later I came back to find my chicken ready to be shredded. I shredded the chicken, added some more enchilada sauce, salt, and finally corn (because it was in my freezer). I found I didn’t need to add anything but

In a slow cooker, add chicken, chopped onion and peppers and 15 ounces enchilada sauce. Cook on high about 3 hours, or low about 6 hours, or until chicken is easily shredded. Once chicken is shredded, turn heat setting down, add frozen corn and additional sauce (as needed) and salt to taste. Cook until corn is heated through. Fill corn tortillas with chicken mixture and roll, placing in an oven-safe pan seamside down. Top with cheese and remaining sauce. Broil or bake until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

Are sour beers the next big thing?

If you’ve even paid the slightest bit of attention, you have noticed IPAs are, by far, the most popular style in the craft beer market. And that makes me wonder, what’s the next style to pop? The IPA surge happened quickly and somewhat unexpectedly and has grown far bigger than probably most beer enthusiasts imagined. Putting the “what’s next?” question to brewers, I heard a range of answers. “It’s a question we ask all the time,” said Ryan Maiola, of Henniker Brewing. “I don’t know, but man, I wish I did,” said Carl Soderberg at Able Ebenezer Brewing Co. Sour beers seem to have a case as the “next big thing.” Many New Hampshire brewers referenced sour beers — though not always with enthusiasm. While sour beers are hardly new, they do seem to be having a bit of a reemergence in New Hampshire and nationally. I’m told any beer can be “soured,” but typically sour beers fall into one of several categories, including gose, wild ales, Berliner or lambic. They taste acidic and, well, sour or tart. Admittedly, I was skeptical. I had tried

I reached out to Brew NH, a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting craft beer in New Hampshire, for input on where to start exploring sour beers in New Hampshire. Based on the Brew NH’s team’s recommendations, here are a few to get the ball rolling: • Stoneface Brewing Co.’s Berliner Weisse with Peach and Berliner Weisse with Strawberry, both of which are lighter-bodied, slightly sour offerings • Smuttynose Brewing Co.’s Short Weisse series, featuring blueberry, peach, blackberry and cherry varieties • The refreshingly tart Harimanna Berliner Weisse by Kelsen Brewing Co. • Flying Goose Brew Pub & Grille’s Foeder series, featuring aged farmhouse ales • Deciduous Brewing Co.’s Lambent, a berliner weisse fruited with raspberries and passion fruit • Schilling Beer Co.’s Poppy’s Moonship, a Leipziger-style gose • Henniker Brewing Co.’s Sour Flower, a dry-hopped sour ale

sour beers exactly three times and each time I made the scrunched-up, I-just-got-punchedin-the-face look. But some close friends — people I trust implicitly — love sour beers and they, along with some brewers, have said I just have to get used to them. With that in mind, I did not give up. During a recent trip to Washington, D.C., I sampled a sour beer from a local brewery, and it floored me. Did I look like I had gotten punched in the face? No. The beer was complex and flavorful and even smooth and very drinkable. I wanted more. The right beer can completely open your eyes to styles you had previously written off. You definitely see it with IPAs; people who wouldn’t touch an IPA five years ago drink them with regularity now, probably because they found the “right” one. Maiola had a similar sour beer experience. He tried a few and didn’t like any. And then he found one he liked. “I think part of it is that they are just so different from the hoppy pales and porters and stouts that we’re all sort of beaten to death with,” Maiola said. If you explore New Hampshire breweries, you’ll find a big range of sour beers, including more exotic brews, like sour IPAs or sour brown ales. In fact, Henniker Brewing recently released Queen Polyanna, a red sour ale. Earth Eagle Brewings in Portsmouth brews a Brown Clown Brown with autumn olive berries, and SmuttLabs, an experimental wing of Smuttynose Brewing Co. in Portsmouth, has tried out a variety of sour-ish styles. It is becoming more and more common for breweries to have a sour offering. Because a sour beer is so very different than other beers, brewers recommend giving it at least three good sips. That first sip might be jarring. Take another. And then one more. In other words, don’t give up on it. It might surprise you.

This is actually Fleetwood Mac without Stevie Nicks, who for some reason didn’t want to transport herself back to 1979 and the same studio the band used to record the Tusk LP. It’s Mick Fleetwood on drums, John McVie on bass, and a whole lotta throwback bubblepop, which ranges from great (most of what Christine had a hand in, such as “Feel About You,” which steers toward the same lazy pants-itching longing as 1987’s “Everywhere” but without any truly absorbing counterpoint) to middling (kickoff tune “Sleeping around the Corner” sounds like something John Cougar would have tossed in the rubbish for being too vanilla). Nicks is sorely missing on “Red Sun,” an uninspired Crosby Stills and Nash-esque hippie humbug that could have been better if it were slightly underproduced. The CSN-soundalike problem surfaces a few times, including on “Love is Here to Stay,” which at least evinces that Buckingham is definitely into the whole trip, tabling some highbrow finger-picking that even an exuberant chorus fails to save.

This Atlanta rapper may have pioneered trap, but of course it was Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” that won the meme crown as well as the collective heart of the internet, with YouTuber Filthy Frank’s “pink guy” version alone now up to 58 million views at this writing. It wasn’t just luck (or the fact that he’s white), though; Baauer steered directly toward the EDM-trap crossover opportunity that presented itself and made way too many people forget that Gucci and all those other guys had blazed the trail. Gucci hasn’t done much this year, just an EP with Shawty Redd (3 for Free), a surprise being that he released a bunch of records while he was doing prison time on gun charges, and it’s a bit odd that the song celebrating his revived-BFF-age song with Nicki Minaj, “Make Love,” isn’t here. The snoozy Rick Ross collab (“Loss for Words”) is, though, as are visits from Chainz and Offset, etc., and the vocals aren’t delivered through a land line, so it counts as punching the clock. Bling, disses, drawling, the usual. B — Eric W. Saeger

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases

• During the 1980s, British singer Alison Moyet was the synthpop choice for girls who liked Depeche Mode (her first band was Yazoo, a project with Vince Clarke) but weren’t quite cool enough to dig Siouxsie. That doesn’t mean she was bad; in fact she’s always done some pretty neat tunes, even if they sound a little cheesy these days. Her new album, Other, comes out June 16, featuring the title track, a stark, draggy bum-out affair that’s kind of like Lorde a little bit, mournful piano and regretful lines full of remorse and bummer-ness. Not my bag, but, like, yay and stuff. • Speaking of Lorde, the ghetto-chic poster girl also has a new album coming out, called Melodrama, comin’ your way before you can do anything about it! Angst-burdened 20somethings trapped in super-impossible puppy love SnapChat dramas will thrill to these groovy new tunes, I’m sure, which are all about being lonely and blah blah blah, including the new single “Liability,” a snoozy piano ballad in which she croaks quirky platitudes about getting kicked out of a store or something and then goes home to dance with herself. Let that be a lesson to everyone: Once in a while you will be totally alone, and you should prepare to deal with it in some other way than dancing by yourself in a store and scaring all the old people, who are there just to buy stuff. This has been a public service announcement. • As everyone knows, Chuck Berry recently died, after a long, difficult life owning all of rock ’n’ roll. His new album Chuck is out June 16, and yes, it is an actual album of new songs, if you consider “Wonderful Woman” a “new song,” even though it is basically the same song as “You Never Can Tell,” the song from Pulp Fiction where Scientology Guy dances in the hamburger joint with the Kill Bill girl. But I’m not here to judge; I report, you decide. • We’ll close with news of Iteration, the new LP from L.A. ’80s-synthwave lamprey Com Truise, just so that you’ll learn a new word today, that being “spoonerism,” which is defined as “an error in speech or deliberate play on words in which corresponding consonants, vowels, or morphemes are switched.” You see, this isn’t Tom Cruise, it’s just a DJ who will be forgotten within a decade, buried under the 10 grillion tons of mediocre techno spam that sounds just like it, which is all coming to your YouTube-to-MP3 converters soon. “Memory” is one of the songs. There is no singing, just random soundtrack vibe from Top Gun or whatever. Wait, stop trampling me to go buy this album, I have a trick knee! — Eric W. Saeger

Many published authors despise book tours and everything they involve, from air travel and hotel living to events void of readers. Julia Glass is not one of them. Granted, the Marblehead, Mass., writer’s events probably don’t lack guests; her following has been large ever since she won the National Book Award for Three Junes in 2002. But unlike many writers, Glass is a self-described extrovert. She loves talking to people (and is generous with her time, spending 40 minutes on the phone for this story) and is an enormous fan of indie bookstores. “One of my favorite things to do is to walk into an independent bookstore … and say, ‘So tell me the things you’ve read lately that I will not have heard about.’ Fewer and fewer books get public attention these days, as newspapers are cutting back on arts coverage,” Glass said via phone. “That’s one thing independent booksellers offer that no online bookstore truly can — [the ability] to look you in the eye, hold out a book to you and say, ‘This is an incredible book that has not been reviewed.’” Needless to say, Glass looks at promoting A House Among the Trees, published June 13, with anticipation, and the expectation she’ll return home with boxes of new titles. Glass’s sixth novel is about the unusual bond between world-famous children’s author Mort Lear and his assistant Tommy Daulair. When he dies and unexpectedly leaves her everything, Daulair is honored but dismayed at the complexities of his will and the prospect of dealing with people like the outraged museum curator Lear once promised his artistic estate and the British actor cast to play Lear in a movie. Unlike most of Glass’s stories, which usually start with a character that pops into her head, this one blended two ideas driven by unusual circumstances. The first one was triggered by a New York Times article about children’s author Maurice Sendak leaving most of his estate to his long-time assistant. “I thought about having this enormous honor and responsibility bestowed upon you — and at the same time, the judgmental opinions of the world falling on your head,” said

Glass, whose research into Sendak’s story ended with that article. “I thought a lot, too, about what it would be like to devote your life to the care and management of someone’s reputation, as well as someone’s career, and then to be left with that ongoing responsibility beyond that person’s death.” The second part of her idea was inspired by a YouTube video she watched during the 2015 Oscar season featuring Eddie Redmayne, Ethan Hawke, Timothy Spall, Benedict Cumberbatch, Channing Tatum and Michael Keaton. “What I realized, while these actors were discussing their roles, is that all of them were playing real people. And in some cases, the people were still alive,” she said. “I thought, what if this famous person was about to be played in a biopic? And if that actor had communicated with him and expected to meet him? And when that great writer dies suddenly, he meets with the assistant instead?” Glass follows theater and film closely thanks to her 21-year-old son, who’s passionate about acting. They see live productions and watch annual awards shows together. Her fascination is usually with the stories, his with the performances, but Glass found enjoyment imagining what it might be like to be an actor. “[I think] what an actor does is actually quite parallel to what a fiction writer does. … One of the greatest pleasures of fiction is when you fully enter the psyche of a character who’s not like you,” she said. A House Among the Trees also allowed Glass to dip back into the art world, which she was part of after graduating from Yale in the late ’70s. Her dream was to be a painter, and her first job post-college was in a secretarial position at an art museum. Much of her free time was spent mingling with other artists. “The art world still fascinates me. ... It’s the path I didn’t follow, and I’m perfectly OK with that,” she said. When she’s not writing or promoting books, she keeps busy as the Writer in Residence at Emerson College and co-director of a Provincetown arts festival, Twenty Summers, which this year saw big-name novelists like Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Russo. But one of her favorite things to do is interact with readers, who often give her extraordinary insight into her work — in fact, they sometimes notice themes or nuances she incorporated subconsciously. “I’ve had people at events tell me what I’m doing [in my writing] that are so true, but I had no idea I [was doing it]. It’s one of the reasons I love going on tour. I love hearing the surprising things people say,” Glass said.

If you love to read about what goes on behind the scenes in Washington, you’re going to adore Who Thought This Was a Good Idea? by former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Alyssa Mastromonaco. In this book Mastromonaco relays enough anecdotes to satisfy every political addict. Be forewarned, Mastromonaco is a little blunt in her descriptions and use of colorful language. Her story of having IBS problems at the Vatican definitely tells it like it is, as does her bordering-on-too-much-information menstrual story (which resulted in a change in the way things are done at the White House — so ultimately forgivable). Sometimes, we discover that working and traveling with politicians and presidents isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The author lays it out in the open and shows us that you’ve got to take the good with the bad when living and breathing politics. It’s the author’s voice and detail of stories that add to the authenticity of this telling. Mastromonaco has a funny, self-deprecating tone that stays consistent throughout the book. In Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?, we are led through an amazing story that begins in a small town and ends up in the White House. Mastromonaco had worked with Barack Obama for a full decade before he even ran for president. “... I really wanted to work for Obama. After the brutal Kerry defeat, I especially wanted to work for someone who was not going to run for president — I didn’t think I could take that heartbreak twice in a lifetime — but I also thought Obama was no bullshit and so, so smart. Even then it was clear he was special.” Mastromonaco gives us tantalizing background information on what it’s like to organize huge political events (sometimes several each day). We follow her as she transitions from senatorial support to working on a presidential campaign. The management behind all the campaign stops is mind-boggling. Every little piece has to be put into place and has to be operational so that the candidate doesn’t look bad. It’s a fast-paced, do-or-die environment (which leads to a lot of stress eating — which leads to complaining about how clothes fit — hey, we’ve all been there.) Mastromonaco fondly recalls one stop

in Pennsylvania where Obama gave a speech in pouring sleet. When they had planned the event, the weather forecast had been good. Despite the drastic change, the campaign went ahead with the event — at Mastromonaco’s insistence. And apparently Obama (who hates the cold) will never forget it. When he got back, he good-heartedly chided Mastromonaco for being in a warm office while he was out in that horrible weather. Mastromonaco candidly talks about the shift from running campaigns to her first days in the White House. One of her first duties was talking to military leaders after Obama won the presidential election. She tells us that at that particular meeting she initially felt out of her league, a poser, but in true style, she put her head down, did her homework and ended up getting a vote of confidence from those very leaders at the end of the meeting. This book does not get bogged down in political platforms or policies. It covers a young woman’s journey in politics and the lessons she learned (some of which are painful) along the way. The timeline does jump around at times, which can cause a little confusion, but that aside, the details are worth the effort. I particularly liked a tidbit about when Obama called Mastromonaco to send condolences when her cat died — a simple gesture between two people who work together and who have deep respect for each other. But don’t expect any dirt on Obama. Instead you’re going to discover stories from a working relationship with a boss who turned out to be a mentor in all things political. What’s absolutely refreshing about this book is that not only is it a study in what Obama has done and how he has acted, but it’s also a great book filled with advice for young adults who may be trying to advance their careers in the field of politics. (There is a lot of “do as I say and not as I did.”) At the end of the book Mastromonaco wrote that she was targeting 15- to 25-yearolds as her audience. Clearly she speaks to them in a language that they understand. I’m not in that demographic and yet I found this book to be delightful, filled with tantalizing information, funny, and in the end, an inspiring account of a young woman, who with grit and fortitude, did a job that we all can admire her for.

The Mummy (PG-13)

Tom Cruise stars in the jumbled heap of stuff that forms The Mummy, the kickoff to the Dark Universe, a, heavy sigh, monster movie cinematic universe.

In ancient Egypt, Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) was about to lose at game of thrones to her father’s baby son. She killed her father and the baby, and planned to conjure up Set, the god of death, and put him in a human body. But before she could finish the ceremony, priests stopped her and then “mummified” and buried her alive. When her coffin is unearthed in the present day, this semi-immortal being escapes, sucks the life-force from people to reconstitute herself and continues in her quest to bring forth Set so that … something. I never really saw what Ahmanet has to gain from this science experiment, especially since its success means she takes backset to a god rather than being the big noise herself. Meanwhile, Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and his poorly-written comic relief, Chris (Jake Johnson), are U.S. military reconnaissance and, basically, looters. When their looting puts them in the way of insurgents, they call in a U.S. airstrike to get out of trouble. The bombing uncovers Ahmanet’s tomb, which they explore with Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis), some kind of antiquities investigation person. Since the tomb is in the middle of a war zone, she has the military ship Ahmanet’s coffin to London. The plane carrying Ahmanet’s coffin and the central cast members crashes shortly before reaching its destination and, though Nick should have died in the crash, he wakes up in the morgue. We hamfistedly learn he has been chosen by Ahmanet to be the vessel for Set’s entry to the human realm. Why him? Because he’s Tom Cruise, and if you’re going to have Tom Cruise in your movie he needs to be in the middle of the action. We also meet the head of a magical-evilstuff organization, one Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe). Yes, clearly, this movie, which didn’t really know what to do with its

The Mummy (PG-13)

one monster (the Mummy), needed to mix in another monster (Jekyll-and-Hyde) to really underline the “part one”-ness of the endeavor. On the other hand, that this movie is the first in a franchise is the most coherent idea in The Mummy. This movie seems to want Tom Cruise to be an adventurous Indiana Jones type, with some modern anti-hero mixed in and a good supply of funny lines. And the movie is clearly meant to be a mix of action, horror and a smidge of romance. But, as this movie designs those elements, none of them go together. And this is not a “striped sweater and polka dotted skirt” kind of clash, but a “striped sweater, head of lettuce, biology textbook” level of disconnectedness. I feel like I’m watching randomly applied studio notes that The Mummy should be action-packed, be visually exciting, have moments of horror and sell people on the grand mythology. Do them all! In every scene! With a side of Dr. Jekyll! In addition to not making sense or having much fun, the whole blob drags down Tom Cruise, who is normally great at the actiony, humor-y popcorn flick. D+ Rated PG-13 for violence, action and scary images, and for some suggestive content and partial nudity, and presumably for the despair you’ll feel for all involved. Directed by Alex Kurtzman with a screenplay by David Koepp and Christopher McQuarrie and Dylan Kussman, The Mummy is an hour and 50 minutes long and is distributed by Universal Pictures.

My Cousin Rachel (PG-13)

A charming widow maybe/maybe not murdered her husband and his heir is maybe/maybe not determined to expose her in My Cousin Rachel, a fun little gothic thriller.

Philip (Sam Claflin) is a nearly (but, importantly, not quite) 25-year-old man in Victorian-ish England who has inherited a beloved estate after the death of the beloved cousin, Ambrose, who raised Philip since childhood and had recently lived, for his health, in sunnier Florence. Until Philip’s forthcoming 25th birthday, a godfather, Nick Kendall (Iain Glen) is the ultimate arbiter of his finances. Nick is a trusted family friend — and a possible father-in-law, should Philip marry the clearly interested Louise (Holliday Grainger), Nick’s daughter. Because of a marriage shortly before Ambrose’s death and a letter coming just weeks before he died, Philip suspects that Rachel (Rachel Weisz), Ambrose’s new wife, is connected to Ambrose’s death. He vows to give her what-for if she ever comes to England. Unfortunately, Philip, whose life experience was the dude-ly bachelor home of Ambrose and a boys’ boarding school, has no ability to deal with women (poor Louise, she doesn’t count like that with Philip). When he meets Rachel, he is quickly drawn in and believes she is as she appears: a grieving wid-

ow who isn’t sure what to do next. Though Ambrose hadn’t left a legal will that made any mention of Rachel, Philip decides to give her money. But what does it mean that she quickly spends it all? Who is Rainaldi (Pierfrancesco Favino), the shifty-seeming Italian? Is Rachel using Philip’s growing infatuation with her to grasp for more of the family fortune? The fun of My Cousin Rachel is figuring out who is gaslighting whom. Did Rachel nurse Ambrose while secretly poisoning him? Or was Ambrose’s death innocent but now she’s trying to charm the estate and its money out of Philip’s hands? Or, and this may be the funnest option, is the movie gaslighting us, showing us Rachel with close-ups and ominous music and allowing us to draw our own, possibly incorrect, conclusions? And are the conclusions we’re drawing based not on Rachel at all but, as Rachel herself suggests, on her status as an unmarried woman? It’s a fun game, after the movie ends, to reconsider how Rachel’s same actions would appear if the movie framed her as a feminist heroine. Or, just as a regular person. Remove the petticoats and the carriages and consider how one might act after the sad end of a short, tumultuous marriage — the rash decisions, the attempts to figure out what’s next. Is Rachel a villain? Or is she a woman who prefers not to speedily remarry? It’s a neat little puzzle, a painting that shows you a different story based on the angle at which you view it. Rachel Weisz pulls off the trick of playing someoone who may be one of three different kinds of characters. She does a lot with a look — it can mean many things depending on when in the movie we are. My Cousin Rachel isn’t a modern jumpscare fest but it is a quirky, quiet literary bit of spookiness that offers a nice mystery. B+ Rated PG-13 for some sexuality and brief strong language. Directed and adapted for the screen by Roger Michell (from the Daphne Du Maurier book), My Cousin Rachel is an hour and 46 minutes long and distributed by Fox Searchlight.

By Michael Witthaus

Despite decades of success, Toto is the Rodney Dangerfield of rock. The late comedian famously complained, “I don’t get no respect at all,” and Toto guitarist Steve Lukather knows what he meant. “There has been, from day one, people trying to stop us,” Lukather said by phone from his home in Southern California. “We’ve been running up a vertical mountain for 40 years, while we quietly sold 40 million records — and it would have been twice that, believe me. Even our own record company didn’t like us. It was very strange.” Lukather speaks with clear humor, absent of bitterness. Sober for eight years, he’s having more fun than ever playing with the band he began in high school that went on to score mega-hits with “Hold the Line,” “Rosanna,” “Africa,” “99” and others. “It’s lightening up now,” he said of the lack of respect. “I mean, there will always be the guys from Rolling Stone, the 70-year-old men stuffed into a Ramones T-shirt who just hate us. I’m never going to change that … so I’m really enjoying the ride.” He’s not above making a few of his own jabs. Take the band’s name, a Latin term used by Jeff Porcaro and David Paich to note the group members’ deep resumes. It translates to “all-encompassing,” but Lukather learned from fellow musician Tom Scott that it had another meaning. “I wanted to keep the high school name, Still Life,” Lukather said, “but they started Toto When: Sunday, June 25, 7 p.m. Where: New Tupelo Music Hall, 10 A Street, Derry Tickets: $100 & $125 and up at

writing ‘Toto’ on all the boxes of demos that we were doing — it just stuck, man! Then we come to find out it’s the biggest toilet company in the world. I said, ‘See guys? You wouldn’t listen to me.’” In 2007, Lukather walked away from the group with a message posted on his website. “There is no more Toto,” he wrote at the time. “At 50 years old I wanted to start over and give it one last try on my own.” When bassist Mike Porcaro fell ill with ALS a few years later, Lukather had a change of heart. Paitch asked him to take part in a benefit and he agreed — provided vocalist Joseph Williams and Steve Porcaro rejoined. The 2010 one-off turned into a tour. “We went out and had such a great time,” Lukather said. “Joe was bringing it, everything was really fun, so we decided to do it the next year. As we started to get into year No. 3, things got interesting.” In 2014, they recorded a live album, followed the next year by Toto XIV, the band’s first studio album in nine years. It’s also one of their best, featuring the radio-friendly “Running Out of Time” and “21st Century Blues” a Lukather/Williams co-write that’s a clear homage to one of his favorite bands. “The running joke was that I always wanted to be in Steely Dan,” Lukather said. “We were basically a Steely Dan tribute band in high school, and Jeff Porcaro was their drummer. ... They and The Beatles were probably

our biggest influences, with Jimi Hendrix thrown in for good measure.” Lukather played on countless sessions in the 1970s and 1980s, with credits on scores of albums. His days as a hired gun ended 25 years ago, though. “I was taught [that] the life of a studio guitar player is probably about 10 to 12 years,” he said. “You work up from starting out to ‘Ever hear this guy?’ to an A-lister. Then you step aside and make room for the next guy.” The internet disrupted things even more. “Now the scene is over,” Lukather said. “Guys do sessions from their house, by Skype or FaceTime. They have studios all set up, and people send them files! I used to walk into sessions not knowing who I was going to work with or what kind of music I was going to play. I had to be ready for anything.” The passage of time has mellowed Lukather — even his band’s name doesn’t bug him anymore. “Forty years later, it’s not as stupid as it used to be,” he said. “There are a lot of really stupid names out there, but Toto has been very good to me and I embrace it. I’m very thankful and grateful every day. I’m more relaxed. There is something to be said about getting older. I’m not running the races anymore, just doing what I do best, and there are a few people that dig it. I can feed my nine dependants in the 50 percent tax bracket.”

Unclear on the concept

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam argues that his “hands are tied” by “federal food laws” and that fresh, “all-natural” milk with the cream skimmed off the top cannot be sold in Florida as “milk” (or “skim milk”) but must be labeled “imitation milk” unless the “all-natural” milk adds (artificial) vitamin A to the product. A family farm in the state’s panhandle (Ocheesee Creamery) decided to challenge the law, and Putnam, who recently announced his candidacy for governor, said he would try to resolve the issue soon.

If high-schoolers seem stressed by active lifestyles and competitive pressures, and consequently fail to sleep the recommended nine to 10 hours a day, it must be a good idea for the federal government to give grants (including to Las Cruces High School in New Mexico) to purchase comfy, $14,000 “nap pods” that drive out the racket with soft music, for 20 minutes a shot during those frenzied classroom days. A May NPR report based on Las Cruces’ experience quoted favorable reviews by students, backed by a doctor and a nurse practitioner who pointed to research showing that adequate sleep “can” boost memory and attention and thus “can” improve school performance (and therefore must be a great use of federal education dollars).

(1) Briton Fred Whitelaw, 64, who has bowel cancer, recently began working “therapeutic” breast milk into his diet, but only that supplied by his daughter, Jill Turner, who recently gave birth and said she is happy to double-pump to assure both Fred and baby Llewyn adequate supplies (although husband Kyle is trying it out for his eczema, as well). (2) Scientists writing in the journal of the American Society for Microbiology recently recommended that parents not discourage children from picking their noses because snot contains a “rich reservoir of good bacteria” beneficial to teeth and overall health (fighting, for example, respiratory infections and even HIV).


(1) It recently became necessary for Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski to acquire a bigger home in the Los Angeles area because their 33,000 “bunny”-related items (stuffed bunnies, antique bunnies, bunny paintings, bunny dinnerware, etc.) needed more space. (2) The world’s only museum devoted to the “house cat” allows self-guided tours in Sylva, North Carolina, where curator Harold Sims displays 10,000 artifacts including a genuine petrified cat (with whiskers!) pulled from a 16th-century English chimney. (3) Brantford, Ontario, real estate agent Kyle Jansink,

speaking for unidentified sellers, said he accepted the challenge of selling the meticulously maintained home “as is” still packed with the sellers’ clown-related items (dolls, miniatures, porcelain statues, paintings).

Compelling explanations

• They’re “therapists,” not “strippers,” argued New York City’s Penthouse Executive Club, creatively characterizing its dancers to avoid $3 million in back taxes, but the state’s appeals board ruled against it in April. Penthouse had insisted that its performers were more akin to counselors for lonely men, and that the club’s “door charge” was an untaxable fee for therapeutic health services. • James Pelletier, 46, was arrested in Hollis, Maine, in May after he fired a BB gun pointblank at his two sons, ages 9 and 11 but only, he said, as a “rite of passage” into maturity (perhaps thinking the experience would help them become as mature as their father). He said if the kids knew how it felt to get shot, perhaps they would not be so quick to fire their own guns.

Military allies in odd places

(1) In April, three days after ISIS fighters reportedly executed 25 villagers about 50 miles south of Kirkuk, Iraq, the three murderers were themselves killed (and eight more wounded) when a pack of wild boars overran their position and gnawed them into martyrdom. (2) In April, a Russian naval reconnaissance ship sank in the Black Sea off of Turkey (likely op: Syria-related) when it collided with a livestock barge flying the flag of Togo. All aboard the Russian ship were rescued; the much-heavier Togolese vessel suffered barely a scratch.


• In May, Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley apparently mindlessly signed the proclamation designating a special day for the late Tre Hummons (submitted by his grieving father, to honor the son’s “sacrifice”). Tre Hummons was killed in 2015 by a police officer but only after Tre had just shot and killed another Cincinnati police officer. • Winneshiek County (Iowa) Engineer Lee Bjerke said he had no idea how the driver of the loaded 18-wheeler had missed the “Load Limit 3 Tons” sign at the entrance of the small, rickety bridge near Cresco in May, but in seconds, the span was wiped out, and the tractor-trailer had become part of the Turkey River. The loaded grain truck weighed more than 30 tons.

Armed and clumsy (all-new!)

Still more incidents in which people (make that, “men”) accidentally shoot themselves: a National Rifle Association staff member, 46, training on a firing range (Fairfax County, Virginia, April); a fleeing robber, run over by his victim, with the collision causing the robber’s gun to fire into his own mouth (Hawthorne, California, March); two boys, 17 and 19, “practicing” loading and unloading a handgun, managing to hit each other (Houston, March); a homeless man, 45, in a now-classic waistband-holster-crotch malfunction (Lake Panasoffee, Florida, Oct.); U.S. Park Police officer, shot his foot in a confrontation with a raccoon (Washington, D.C., Nov.); man, 48, shot himself, then, apparently angry at how it happened, shot his bed (Oceana County, Michigan, July).

The Whipping Man


A Drama by Matthew Lopez | June 21-July 2 It is April, 1865 and the Civil War is drawing to a close. Caleb DeLeon, a Jewish Confederate soldier, returns wounded from the battlefield to his home in Richmond only to find it in ruins. The house has been abandoned by everyone except Simon and John, two former slaves, who were raised as Jews in the DeLeon home. As the three men reunite, they uncover deep-buried secrets... ties that bind them together and that, ultimately, could cost each man his freedom. An unflinching play about redemption, forgiveness and the lasting scars of slavery. Emotionally Potent...surreal in the layers of meaning...a quiet force.” -New York times The Whipping Man features Taurean Blacque (Driving Miss Daisy, Det, Washington in Hill Street Blues), Robert Douglas and Will Hoewll. Directed by Howard Millman. Rated R. Contains Adult Language and Intense Images.
