GRANITE VIEWS ALLYSON RYDER
Returning to my roots
As a born and raised Granite Stater, I’m happy to be home. Very happy. Over the past five years, New Hampshire was central to my life in all ways but one. I work for a wonderful, statewide organization that engages leaders on state issues, I volunteer only for New Hampshirebased nonprofits, and most importantly, I joined only New Hampshire golf courses. But I lived just over the New Hampshire line in York, Maine. At the end of June, my personal lobbying efforts to get us into New Hampshire finally paid off and I am officially a New Hampshire resident. One of the benefits of living and working in two different states was gaining some important perspectives and lessons that will help shape my experiences going forward. Avoid assumptions: When my wife and I moved to York, we knew little about the dead-end road that we were going to call home. The neighbors were older and we weren’t sure about how they would handle a same-sex couple in the neighborhood. We quickly realized that we had no reason to worry as our little neighborhood, with its staunch conservatives, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Catholics, could not have been more loving and accommodating to us. Invest in education: Besides moving to Maine for personal reasons, I also went to pursue an advanced degree at a more affordable rate. Sure, there was an income tax, but I also received my master’s degree at half the cost of a public university in New Hampshire. This tuition savings not only helped me to advance my career but allowed me to do so without significantly increasing my personal debt. Choose your leaders wisely: Although I never saw myself leaving New Hampshire, sometimes life offers us a different plan, as it did for me. In this day and age where you can live anywhere and work remotely, it’s important to be promoted as a place where people want to be. As Maine made headlines for some of the wrong reasons, I missed the accountability and engagement of New Hampshire’s elected leadership. Now, just a few weeks after moving to North Hampton, I hope our new neighbors will be as welcoming as our old crew was, that the state finds a way to prioritize education so we can have a competitive workforce, and that I’m able to begin personally addressing some of the issues we learn about at Leadership NH. We will miss Maine but it’s nice to be home — where you live really does matter. Allyson Ryder serves as the associate director at Leadership NH, and sits on several statewide nonprofit boards and committees. She can be reached at almryder@ outlook.com.

The New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled favorably in a case by the state attorney general to investigate major pharmaceutical companies and their role in the opioid crisis. NHPR reported that the AG’s office has been trying to subpoena drug sale records from five drug companies but those companies have refused to turn over the documents, claiming the state was at fault for using outside counsel. The Supreme Court ruled that the companies had no ground to stand on, according to the story. It sent the issue back down to a lower court for reconsideration.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have found a way to extend the growing season for strawberries in the state from what is traditionally a four- to six-week period to 19 consecutive weeks. According to a press release from UNH, the researchers used a technique that grew strawberries in low tunnels. Last year, they harvested strawberries in Durham for a period spanning from mid-July through the week of Thanksgiving. Their research also improved the percentage of marketable fruit from 70 percent to 85 percent.

State authorities say the damage from the recent storms and flooding has been initially assessed at upward of $11.5 million, the AP reported. The vast majority of the damage happened in Grafton County. State Homeland Security and Emergency Management Commissioner Perry Plummer said he expects the damage meets the threshold for Gov. Chris Sununu to make a disaster declaration, which will free up federal aid, according to the story. The storms delivered more than an inch of rain per hour on Saturday, July 1. According to the AP, about 60 roads were damaged and about a dozen homes were flooded.

After numerous versions of full-day kindergarten funding were proposed by lawmakers and the governor’s office, the final one signed by the governor was attached to the legalization of keno, with the hope that it will serve as the main source of funding for kindergarten. Keno is projected to generate between $8 million and $9 million. Keno is a video lottery game in which a player makes bets on a slip of up to 80 numbers. A screen at a casino or bar will display 20 randomly generated numbers every five minutes and the more numbers match what the player has on his or her slip, the higher the payout. Democratic Sen. David Watters, the bill’s prime sponsor, said the keno proceeds would be directed to the Education Trust Fund. There will be no funding for full-day kindergarten the first year, but in the second year (fiscal year 2019) there would be a floor of $1,100 in per-pupil funding for all full-day kindergarten students. “It also said that if keno produced more than the … $9 million a year, starting in two years, then that extra money can go toward the full funding,” Watters said. With the $1,100 added to the $1,800 in existing funding for half-day kindergarten, districts with full-day kindergarten will receive $2,900 per pupil. Watters said that’s about 80 percent of full funding based on the adequacy formula used for other grades.
Watters said the bill was a true bipartisan effort and credited his Republican partners, like Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley and Gov. Chris Sununu, for taking a leadership role in passing a full-day kindergarten bill through both chambers. But as with all true bipartisan bills, each party gains something and loses something. For this bill, the issue of funding full-day kindergarten was largely uncontroversial. Though the effort has been historically championed by Democrats, Sununu made it a priority. The larger divide on the issue was between the House and the Senate. The Senate passed Watters’ original bill in late March with a large majority before being tabled in anticipation of the budget process. “My bill passed 22 to 1 as a policy statement,” Watters said. His original bill fully funded the program with $14.5 million in spending. The House was less sanguine on the issue. An early House proposal for full-day kindergarten was retained in committee, suggesting the battle would likely be fought in that chamber.
Another bill that passed the Senate would have targeted spending for full-day kindergarten to communities of most need using a formula that included statistics on free and reduced lunch programs, English as a second language and other indices, but Watters said that formula would create “winners and losers” with some communities getting negligible or no funding. A full-day kindergarten measure spending $14 million passed the House in May, and there was a push to include it in the budget. But after the House Freedom Caucus, a minority conservative faction, joined Democrats in opposition to the House budget, leadership had to take a different approach. “It became pretty clear that a budget including kindergarten could not pass,” Watters said. The idea of incorporating keno was suggested by the House Finance Committee. It would serve as a funding mechanism, but it was also a way for the House to get something it has tried to get in recent years but has consistently failed to pass the Senate. Watters said some believed keno was a poison pill, but he worked with negotiators in the committee of conference to make sure it passed. “There was a problem with the keno so I talked with the Senate leadership and the governor’s office about saying that, ‘Look, if we did full funding in the second year, we could get the votes for keno,’” Watters said. At first, that seemed to be a workable compromise. “Despite the indications that this was acceptable to the parties, there was suddenly an objection from the House, that they would not support that,” Watters said. So it was back to the drawing board. And what he came up with was the minimum of $1,100 in per-pupil funding starting in the second year, which was shy of full funding.
For Watters, that was still a major win, because even though keno is ostensibly how all of this is being paid for, that base level of funding is not contingent on keno’s making money. “The bottom line for me is if a keno screen in the state never lights up, we still get $1,100 guaranteed per student,” Watters said. “I think it’s going to encourage more communities to adopt it, and I’m also going to continue to fight.” Right now, about 73 percent of towns have full-day kindergarten. For those communities, Watters says, this bill is a tax relief. But for the rest, it’s a major incentive to start fullday programs of their own. The new law does not require towns to adopt full-day kindergarten, so it will be up to local communities to decide if they want it.

Can you recall for our readers how you ended up as the president of the NHCUC? In 1993, the NHCUC was facing sort of a reality check. The former executive director had left and the presidents were really confronting the question of whether or not the NHCUC had run its course or did they want to continue to build on the history they had together. And, to their credit, they decided that they valued the collaboration and the partnerships and they wanted to continue to work together as institutions. So they did a national search and I actually got contacted by a search executive. ... At the time I was serving at the Nebraska Independent College Foundation, which was a statewide consortium of private colleges and universities in Nebraska. And I was also, at the time, a Nebraska state senator. So the fact that I had a public policy background and a higher education background [was] I think attractive to the presidents of the NHCUC. I ended up moving with my wife and, at the time, five small children, to New Hampshire. … I started Nov. 15, 1993. What are some of the accomplishments of which you are most proud? When I came in ’93 and ’94, we applied for an AmeriCorps grant and we were one of the first recipients of an AmeriCorps grant. AmeriCorps is a national service organization that encourages recent college graduates to spend a year in service to the country. … Then, a couple years later, we got an $8 million earmark grant from Sen. [Judd] Gregg, which I think was the first earmark that he had ever done. And it was [to] build technology infrastructures at college campuses. … We worked with the state legislature. When I came in ’93, we had I think in the neighborhood of $700,000 in state grants for scholarships, and over the years, when [Sen. Jeanne] Shaheen was governor, she supported the doubling of that amount of money. In one legislative session, it got up to $1.5 million and the next legislative session we were able to double it again, so we got up to a little over $3 million in state scholarship dollars for students going to public and private colleges and universities. In 2012, when the university system took a 50-percent cut in their budget, the legislature also cut out all WHAT ARE YOU REALLY INTO RIGHT NOW? I’ve always been fascinated by presidential history. So on our bucket list is for my wife and I to visit every presidential library in the country.
scholarship funding for students. So we became, I think, the only state in the country that wasn’t providing scholarship aid to students. To Gov. [Chris] Sununu’s credit, this legislative session he recommended and, with Sen. Courtesy photo. [Chuck] Morse’s leadership and Sen. [Jeb] Bradley, we’ll now have about $5 million this … coming next year, for scholarships. So New Hampshire will be back in the category of states that are providing scholarships to young people to incentivize going to New Hampshire colleges and universities, and not only learn here but go to work here when they graduate. What are some of the most surprising changes to the higher ed landscape in the state that you’ve watched unfold? One would be, in ’93, ’94, as we looked to the enrollment trends in the campuses, enrollments were going up. The number of students going through the pipeline was increasing and opportunities for the campuses to serve students from not only New Hampshire but throughout the region and the country were pretty strong. Today, we’re facing the exact opposite. The pipeline of young people coming out of K-12 schools, not only in New Hampshire, but throughout New England, is drying up dramatically. The campuses are facing really a tsunami of demographic downtrend. Why are you now stepping down? After 24 years, I think it’s the right time and the right place. I definitely wanted to be the guy that college presidents would say “I wish he would stay around a little bit longer” rather than the guy that they would say “When is he going to retire?” You have to figure out when is the right time to go and, frankly, I wanted to go out on top when the organization is strong. We have strong financial reserves, we just received a seven-year federal Gear Up grant to work with the K-12 schools in the state to encourage students to access higher education. It will be $1.6 million a year for the next seven years. So it’s a good time for, I think, new leadership. What’s next for you? I’m talking with a local sort of startup company that’s going to be doing executive search for higher education. So, presidential searches, vice presidential searches and even some other searches. And some higher education consulting. — Ryan Lessard

QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Bad state to start a biz? According to a new study by WalletHub, New Hampshire was listed as the 2nd Worst State to Start a Business. The three main categories the study looked at were business environment, access to resources and business cost. The only state that ranked lower than New Hampshire overall was New Jersey. The top state was North Dakota followed by Texas, then Utah. No New England states made the Top 10 list but Massachusetts was ranked 18th overall and second in access to resources. There were a lot of things stacked against New Hampshire, such as its high cost of living and labor costs, and it was ranked 49th in access to human capital. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The workforce shortage might be slowing the average growth of new small businesses, which was 38th in the country.
Laconia overdose spike Firefighters in Laconia reported a jump in overdose cases and the use of the anti-overdose drug Narcan in the past five weeks compared to last year. The AP reported there were an average of 30 overdoses in that five-week period. None of the overdoses were known to be fatal, but the use of Narcan jumped by 900 percent with 116 doses. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The department recently responded to six overdoses in a single 12-hour period, according to the story.
Beach-friendly wheelchairs in NH Several New Hampshire beaches now have beach-friendly wheelchairs, available for use at Hampton Beach and state parks in Wellington and Mount Sunapee, according to a recent NHPR report. The nonprofit group SMILE Mass donated five of these chairs, which cost about $2,000 apiece, have ATV-like wheels and float once you’re in the water. QOL Score: +1 Comment: For places where these chairs aren’t available, people can borrow one by contacting SMILE Mass at email@example.com, according to the story.

Baseball’s first half is history. It was what I would call an odd one for the local nine, both for how they have played and for how Red Sox Nation has followed it. On the good side, they begin the second half with a 3.5-game lead atop the AL East. To the bad, it was filled with downs, ups and inconsistency, which continued into the final weekend when what could have been a sensational road trip started off 5-0 but ended with three losses in four games to Tampa Bay. Winning that series would have put serious distance between them, the Yanks and the D-Rays. But thanks to good pitching on Tampa’s side, weak work at the plate, bonehead moves on the bases and a bullpen implosion on Sunday, that opportunity went by the boards to diminish their best three weeks of baseball to date that preceded it. Looking ahead, if they can shake that off, the division is theirs to be had, as even with their issues, everyone else in the division has bigger ones to deal with. So here’s a look at the first half’s big stories and what lies ahead as things restart with chance to make an immediate statement in a three-day, four-game series with the reeling Yankees beginning Friday at Fenway Park. Lack of Buzz: With NESN’s ratings off 20 percent and a noticeable lack of talk radio desperation it’s been the talk of the first half. I attribute it to three things: (1) The David Ortiz retirement tour (and sensational season) pushed it all artificially higher in 2016. Thus we have a hangover of sorts. (2) Coach B had his most active, excitement-building spring since 2007 on the heels of an incredible Super Bowl win. That stole thunder through the draft in late April. (3) With two exciting playoff series wins, followed by winning the draft lottery, Danny trading that pick and the Gordon Hayward chase, the Celtics dominated talk radio into July. With

all that over, they can kickstart the buzz by spanking the Yanks this weekend. Hype Machine Update: The spring training hype machine made Andrew Benintendi out to be the second coming and likely Rookie of the Year. At .279 with 12 homers and 51 RBI he’s been pretty good and the future is bright. But Aaron (here comes the) Judge (here this weekend) stole all that. He’ll be Rookie of the Year with an outside shot at both MVP and the Triple Crown. Yikes! Home Run Derby: In the year of the juiced ball, with 14 teams on pace to hit 200, there’s been a lot of hand-wringing about the Sox’ lack of power. Thanks to losing Ortiz and having AAA players manning third base, they’re 26th in the MLB with 92. So this “punchless” group is projecting to hit 165 homers, though for a little perspective, the “power laden” team of Rice, Lynn, Yaz etc. in 1978 hit 172. But runs are more important, and while they’re on pace to score 100 fewer than in 2016, the 4.8 per they score is fourth-best in the AL and no one has even been hot yet. The GM’s Trade Updates Drew Pomeranz – Anderson Espinoza: If ERA is your thing, Pomeranz has been their best pitcher since June 1. It’s not mine, but outside of rarely getting to the seventh inning he’s been pretty good. Of course, second-half stamina was the issue last year for the former reliever. But for now he’s put the yakking from me and others to rest. Especially since the injured Espinoza hasn’t thrown a pitch all year. Craig Kimbrel vs. 4 Prospects: I don’t care what those four are doing, because with 14 hits allowed and an astonishing 68 strikeouts in 37 innings Kimbrel has been unhittable. Chris Sale vs. Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech: Moncada, at .282 with 11 homers and 33 RBI in AAA, and Kopech, 4-6 with 101 Ks in 78 innings in AA, have been good. Sale has 11 wins, which could
be five more with any luck, and leads MLB in strikeouts. Anyone want to take this trade back? Didn’t think so. Tyler Thornburg vs. Travis Shaw: Shaw has 19 homers and 65 RBI and Thornberg hasn’t thrown a pitch — a major mistake so far by Dave Dombrowski. The David Price Piling On: Yes, he should stay off social media and the Dennis Eckersley shoutout was stupid. But I’d rather have that happen (however misguided) when he’s standing up for a teammate as he was for E-Rod, than for something about himself. Deserved or not, piling on is a specialty in these parts — Bobby Valentine (long before we knew he really was nuts), Carl Crawford, Pomeranz and Kimbrel this spring until he shut everyone up. From my standpoint it’s not a good look, mainly because I hate whiny, finger-pointing, backstabbing blamers who magically jump on and off board depending on how things are going — see Josh Beckett and John Lackey for that one. The Manager: From the team’s best RBI guy Mookie Betts leading off and Xander Bogaerts (four homers, 41 RBI) batting third, to why in the name of Cal Ripken would you give Jackie Bradley Jr. a day of “rest” the Saturday before he gets five of them during the All-Star break — everyone has issues with what a manager does. But John Farrell has juggled big injuries, especially to his starters, the loss of Ortiz, a revolving door at third base, along with a less than stellar first half from Rick Porcello and they are on a 95-win pace. So stop the whining, will ya. Predictions: (1) The Mookster has a giant second half. (2) John Henry takes Ben Cherington off the Christmas card list as he swallows hard to release the Panda with an astonishing $40 large still on his contract. (3) Patriots training camp steals attention unless they are rolling by August. (4) As I said last week — they win the East by 10 games. Email Dave Long at dlong@hippopress. com.

Sports Glossary Ben Cherington: Local lad turned Sox GM who struck out on deals for Allen Craig, Rusney Castillo and Pablo Sandoval that had an incredible $220 million in contracts playing in AAA this spring. The good news: Since he’s joined Toronto to redo their barren farm system, we may see the benefit with the F-Cats if he’s able to duplicate what he did in bringing the likes of Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, JBJR and Andrew B to the Sox in short order. Bobby Valentine: Seemingly out of his mind manager who to put it lightly was a bad fit for Boston. He never had a chance, as the media piling on started before spring training even began. But it’s fair to say he went from one chaotic situation to the next that had players and fans clamoring almost from the start. That turned minor incidents, like being an hour late to one game of 162 after picking up his son at the airport in Oakland and kiddingly saying he’d like to punch Glenn Ordway in the nose during an WEEI interview, into incidents on par with the Hindenburg disaster. While he wasn’t put out of his misery until after Game 162, everyone knew by mid-July it was all over. Cal Ripken: All time, all-time Baltimore Oriole who played a mind-boggling 502 more consecutive games than Lou Gehrig’s astonishing 2,130 straight while hitting 431 homers, knocking in 1,695 runs and accumulating 3,184 hits.

A look at NH’s smaller airports and aviation history
There’s more to New Hampshire’s aviation scene than the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. There are actually more than two dozen airports in the state, and they offer everything from private plane pit stops to flying lessons and scenic flights. There’s also an aviation museum that houses all kinds of artifacts and information about some of the most impactful planes, pilots and flights in state history. So whether you want to learn to fly, go along for a ride or just check out some really old aircraft, it’s time to discover your inner aviator.
Hidden gateways to the clouds By Ryan Lessard
Many towns and cities in New Hampshire have airports that you probably didn’t know existed. Primarily, they offer a travel destination to recreational flyers and business commuters, a place to keep their planes, repair and refuel. While Dave Rolla, the airport manager at Concord Municipal Airport, can’t speak for every airport in the state, he says it’s likely that many of those small fields also offer flight training services. “It’s certainly pretty common that where there are airplanes there are people who are willing to teach people how to fly,” Rolla said.
These so-called general aviation airports are more common in New Hampshire than most realize. There are 25 airports in the state, 15 public and 10 private. “The biggest thing to understand is, geographically speaking, it’s amazing that New Hampshire has that many air-
HIPPO | JULY 13 - 19, 2017 | PAGE 12
ports that can accommodate aircraft,” Rolla said. Only three of them (Manchester, Portsmouth and Lebanon) are classified “Part 139” airports, meaning they offer air carrier or passenger service. Manchester and Lebanon are also bigger, with 10,000-foot runways. That classification means they have TSA security and baggage security. Rolla said that after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, federal security rules for airports effectively made it impossible for smaller airports to grow to the level of a Part 139 because of the prohibitive costs associated with the security requirements. So the remaining airports, like the ones in Concord, Nashua, Laconia, Keene and Jaffrey, rely heavily on recreational and business flights.
Rolla said his company, Concord Aviation Services, is the main operator of the airport, which is owned by the city, and one of five organizations that lease space there. There’s also the New Hampshire Army National Guard, New Hampshire
State Police and two private hangar operators. The Guard makes up most of the money paid to the city for its use of the airport, from hangar leases, fuel and outside parking. But of the estimated 10,000 customers Concord Aviation Services deals with regularly, Rolla said the vast majority are recreational vehicles. “By sheer number of operations, I would say the bulk of New Hampshire airports are being visited by recreational pilots in small airplanes,” Rolla said. He estimates 90 percent of the planes are small planes like Cessnas, single or twin engines with fewer than 12 seats. According to the state Aeronautics Bureau, the state had 1,026 licensed aircraft in calendar year 2016. Many use the airport for long-term parking. Rolla said Concord Aviation Services charges $45 a month for a small plane to stay at the airport. They also rent out planes. The remaining 10 percent are midsized private jets for commercial use. Business people can make more efficient use of their time by flying between com-
pany locations or business meetings than driving there. A common jet is the Bombardier Global Express 6000, and Rolla said he sees them in Concord regularly. “If they’re a company that’s working internationally, that’s a common aircraft that they use,” Rolla said. They can operate easily on 6,000 feet of runway and are able to fly internationally with a range of 6,000 nautical miles. But even though they are the less common plane, they spend more at the airport. “In terms of dollars, it’s split the other way around. Because that Global Express that comes in, those guys can say, ‘Can you roll up that fuel truck and empty it into our plane?’ And it’s a 3,000-gallon fuel truck,” Rolla said. To put that in perspective, a small plane can fly for an hour and burn 10 gallons. Small airports like Concord’s can sometimes even accommodate larger carriers in a pinch, though it’s not practical. Rolla said the Secret Service once examined the airport and determined that a Boeing 757 could land there if it needed to.
The Nashua airport at Boire Field is one of the few small airports with its own control tower, kept running partly with federal dollars. But small, general aviation airports generally operate just fine without having a ground tower on site. Rolla said on clear days when it’s uncontrolled airspace, pilots don’t need to file a flight plan with the FAA. They tap into a shared radio station that is local to the airport they’re landing at or taking off from called a Common Traffic Advisory Frequency and everyone just announces what they’re doing on the channel. In this sense, it’s fairly self-regulated. Rolla said Concord is a “Class E” airspace, which means it’s generally less densely populated with aircraft, so there’s less need for a central traffic controller. On days when visibility is low, pilots are under instrument flight rules, and they have to file flight plans and keep in contact with FAA traffic controllers. Pretty much all of northern New England airspace is managed by the Boston Consolidated TRACON station in Merrimack. If you’re taking off from an airport that

There are two main types of pilot’s licenses: private and commercial. A private license allows you to fly yourself and your passengers recreationally. “That’s the most popular license,” said Michael Johnson, flight instructor for Concord Aviation Services. “That’s what people get if it was always a dream of theirs to fly a plane and be a pilot and they want to get into it as a hobby.” To earn a private pilot’s license, you must complete a minimum of 40 hours of flying time, which must consist of at least 20 hours flying with an instructor and 10 hours of supervised solo flying. A commercial pilot’s license allows you to fly for hire. Transporting people or cargo, aerial photography, scenic flights and flight lessons are a few of the services you could offer as a commercial pilot.

license requires 250 hours of flying time, also consisting of at least 20 hours with an instructor and 10 hours solo. In addition to the flying hours, a prospective pilot must pass a test that includes a multiple choice written knowledge test, an oral interview and a practical flying test with an examiner. “The pilot examiner will ask you questions and try to figure out what you know,” Johnson said. “Then, he’ll run you through various maneuvers like take-offs and landings and turns so you can demonstrate that you know how to fly.”
While each flight training center does things a little differently, there is a basic structure that most of them follow. Lessons are typically one-on-one with the student and instructor and run anywhere between 45 minutes and an hour and a half and cost between $100 and $250. “The cost per lesson depends on the lesson for that day and how long it is and what the student is doing,” Johnson said. “What we tell people here is that it’s going to cost them around $8,000 to $10,000 total to earn their license.” The first half of the first lesson usually consists of ground work and pre-flight instruction. Students learn about the anatomy of the plane, its controls, navigation and communications systems, flight terminology, how to inspect the plane, how weather affects flight and other fundamentals. The second half of the lesson is a hands-on runthrough of basic maneuvers such as driving the plane on the ground, taking off, increasing altitude, steady flying, making shallow turns, descending and landing. During flight, the instructor sits next to the student and has access to the same controls so he can assist with the maneuvers if needed. “They’re there to help, but for the most part, the student is in control,” Johnson said. “Those first couple lessons are about getting comfortable with flying and getting used to what it’s like to control an airplane.” The lessons to follow consist of practicing and perfecting the basic maneuvers and learning more advanced techniques like making hard turns, flying at night and flying in cloudy skies. The instructor may also conduct a briefing and analysis of the day’s lesson with the student. “We spend time prior [to the flight] to discuss what they’re going to do, and I have them repeat it back to me so I know they understand. It helps them to visualize it first so it’s not overwhelming when they do it in the air,” said Steve Brouillette of Brouillette Aviation Training in Nash-

ua. “Then afterwards we assess what took place and talk about fine-tuning things for the next flight.” Once the student is confident in his ability to fly, he can start flying without an instructor in the plane. An instructor still monitors the flight from the ground and stays in constant communication with the student as he flies. “The whole point is to become independent,” Brouillette said. “Letting them do it on their own is the only way they can build the proficiency and confidence needed to become independent.” While only training time spent in the
air counts toward earning a pilot’s license, there are also ground aviation courses and courses online that you can take to help you prepare for the written knowledge portion of the license test. Or, if you just want to see what flying is like without spending the time and money required to earn a license, you can take a few individual flight lessons for fun. “We get people who do that quite a bit. They just want the experience but not the license,” Johnson said. “They can take a few lessons, and if it turns out they really like flying, then they can go on and get their license.”

Scenic plane rides in New Hampshire By Kelly Sennott
The best way to get to know a place is by viewing it from up in the air — so say New Hampshire scenic flight pilots. Harvey Sawyer, who runs the Silver Ranch Airpark in Jaffrey, said via phone his airfield is more like a farm than an airport. There’s no security, no baggages, and nearby are horses and an ice cream shop. You don’t even have to fly; he welcomes people to just come out, unfold a lawn chair and watch the sun go down behind Mount Monadnock nearby. “We’re a people place. Lots of [airports] you go to, you have to stand behind barbed wire. We’re not that kind of place,” Sawyer said. “I always tell people who say they don’t like to fly, [they] will after [they] fly with me. And most people do. It’s smooth. It’s like riding in a car with the windows rolled down. … You don’t feel that high, and you don’t feel the speed. You just have this beautiful panoramic view.” The Silver Ranch Airpark, a family-run business founded in 1946, features a 3,000foot runway and specializes in personal
and executive charters and scenic flights around the Monadnock region. Sawyer, who’s been flying for 50 years now, said hot spots on the tour include local water bodies like Contoocook Lake, Gilmore Pond and Dublin Lake.

15 particular you want to check out, just ask. “It’s totally different because everybody gets the window seat and we’re flying low enough so that you can see things really well,” Sawyer said. “And as a passenger, you’re in control. … We love to meet people and share the joy of flying. I always try to tell people, I still think it’s magic after many, many years of flying.” The best times to go are usually mornings and evenings, when light is great and winds have calmed. (Though when in doubt, call ahead of time.) The Federal Aviation Administration defines a scenic flight as going no more than 25 miles from the departure location, but because Sawyer is able to offer charter flights, he can also take passengers on longer rides to see sites like Mount Washington or the coastline. In the Lakes Region, you have a couple of options for scenic flying. Dave French started Lakes Region Seaplane Services in 2010 after years of flying large planes. He takes off and lands on Lake Winnipe-
saukee, and common sights include Weirs Beach, Paugus Bay, the Ossipee Mountains, Mount Major, Castle in the Clouds and Rattlesnake Mountain. If the air’s calm enough, he might let a passenger take the wheel. “That’s the reward of this. … To have a seven-year-old maneuvering the plane with his parents behind him, and to see the look of awe on his face,” French said. You can also take a scenic flight via Emerson Aviation out of the Laconia Airport. Trips are around the lake, though Linda Emerson, who runs the company with her husband, said passengers often like trolling around to spot their homes or where they’re staying nearby. It’s so different, she said, from anything you’ve experienced before. “It’s beautiful. It’s not like when you fly the airlines,” Emerson said. “You’re flying much lower. … The wings are above where you’re looking out the window, and you’re at an altitude where you can see everything.”
A road map of New Hampshire’s aviation history By Matt Ingersoll
The history of aviation and flying in New Hampshire goes back more than a century, to before the invention of the first successfully flown airplane by the Wright Brothers in 1903. This timeline includes some of the most important people and innovations in the Granite State’s aviation history, several of which are preserved and commemorated today through exhibits at the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire in Londonderry.
The first flight
HIPPO | JULY 13 - 19, 2017 | PAGE 16
According to Wendell Berthelsen, director of operations for the Aviation Museum
of New Hampshire, the earliest record of anyone flying any type of aircraft in New Hampshire was a hydrogen gas-powered balloon by French inventor Jean-Pierre Blanchard in Portsmouth in 1796. Blanchard had successfully flown the balloon for the first time in Paris 12 years earlier, in 1784, and was in the Granite State as part of several “aerostatic experiments” performed across the U.S. between 1793 and 1797. He charged visitors $1 admission to ride in the balloon.

during the years of the Civil War and used balloons that were fueled by coal. “He actually did surveillance for the White House for the North to see what the South was doing [during the war],” Berthelsen said. “He would bring a telegraph operator in the basket with him and report back to the White House what his findings were.” A vintage balloon basket, with a mannequin model of Lowe dressed in Civil War-era attire, is today on display in the Museum.
NH’s first airplane
The Wright Brothers would invent the first successfully flown airplane in 1903, and it was just seven years later when the first airplane flight took place over the Granite State. It was on September 27, 1910, at the Rochester Fairgrounds, according to Berthelsen. Archibald Hoxsey, who worked for the Wright Brothers at the time, was the pilot. The flight was one of several “Air Meets” held across the country throughout 1910, made up of exhibition teams of aviators employed by either the Wright Brothers or by aviator Glenn Hammond Curtiss to travel and introduce the public to the airplane. These Air Meets also ended up being the first airplane flights at several other states, including North Dakota, which was also flown by Hoxsey, as well as Vermont, just three days earlier than New Hampshire. “The plane was shipped initially up to New Hampshire by train before it took flight at the fairgrounds,” Berthelsen said. “[Hoxsey] was one of several Wright Brothers pilots who came up to fly their airplanes.”
The first commercial airport
The building that houses the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire is itself a part of the Granite State’s aviation history, Museum Executive Director Jessica Pappathan said. Construction to build an airport in Man-
chester began in June 1927. Just five months later, in November, Robert Fogg became the first person to take off from and land an aircraft at that airport. Fogg was also the first private resident in the Granite State to own a licensed aircraft. Other Granite State firsts included aviatrix Bernice Blake, who became the first licensed female commercial pilot in the state in 1931, and the Doodle Bug, the first biplane designed and built in the state, in 1929. In 1940, the airport was named an Army Air Corps Base, with more than 100 additional buildings constructed in just 90 days. “[The terminal] officially went out of service in 1962, but was used for other purposes for some period of time,” Berthelsen said. “During the expansion of the airport in the mid-to-late ’90s, it was eventually ... converted into a museum.” The terminal reopened officially as a museum in 2004 when its foundation was moved across two runways to the airport’s southeast side, where it is found today, Berthelsen said.
A homegrown hero
Derry native Alan Shepard Jr., who became the first person in the United States to travel in space in May 1961, rode his bicycle to the Manchester Airport as a teenager to sweep out its hangars in exchange for flying lessons, Berthelsen said. “Carl Park Sr. was the one that taught him how to fly out of a hangar — he operated the terminal buildings at the time,” he said. Shepard would go on to graduate from Pinkerton Academy in Derry and then the United States Naval Academy, serving in the Navy during World War II and later becoming a test pilot in 1950. Nine years later, he became selected by NASA as one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts. “We have a couple of panels in the museum about him, as well as a plaque dedication in our terminal building,” Berthelsen said. “He’s also talked about on a number of our tours.”

VA Medical Center offers free art programs for vets By Kelly Sennott
Every Monday afternoon, Amherst artist Elaine Farmer drives 30 minutes to the Manchester VA Medical Center to teach a free art class to New Hampshire veterans. When she arrives, they work on whatever they please — drawings, paintings, even coloring books. “She’s wonderful. She doesn’t push you in any direction you don’t want to go in. There are no rules. You do what you want to do,” said Bill Hines, a Merrimack resident who’s been a regular at Farmer’s classes. Hines is working on colored pencil drawings of flowers, inspired by his real-life occupation in the horticultural industry. He dabbled in art in high school and attended the Vesper George School of Art a year before joining the Army and serving Cleaven Ferguson participating in the free art classes for veterans at the Manchester VA Medical Center. in Vietnam.

people and cause them to see things in new ways. She remembers sitting in on a ceramics workshop when she worked for the White River Junction VA Medical Center. One vet sculpted what he imagined his cancer looked like. When it came time to glaze, Krinsky pulled him aside. “If you put this in the kiln, it’s going to be permanent and solid as a rock,” Krinsky said to him. “You’re fighting cancer. You may want to take this to your local lake, or the ocean, and chuck this puppy into the water so it disintegrates. Because that’s what you want to do to this cancer.” The man’s eyes flew wide open. And that’s what he did. Krinsky said via phone the VA offers lots of different clinics and workshops, but she’s still looking for more artists — or people expert in anything — to teach or perform for vets. Some vets just haven’t found their right medium yet. Hines thinks keeping busy — with art or some other hobby — is essential for vets, if just to get out of their own heads. “By going there and having someone like Elaine help you and guide you, you can get out of all that other thinking you shouldn’t be doing. It slows your mind down,” Hines said. “I think more information has to get out to the public and to the veterans about what’s available to them. … You don’t have to be an accomplished artist to take a class. If you just want to learn, that’s why Elaine is there.”

Instead, McGowan is moving to 2 Phenix Ave., a smaller space just off North Main St. The new place has no dedicated gallery parking or exterior windows, but it will be handicap accessible via an elevator at the Phenix Hall entrance between The Works Bakery Cafe and Bravo Boutique. The move is the result of people coming forward to find a solution after the announcement, which caused several landlords to identify more sustainable locations nearby. The gallery will continue to operate at 10 Hills Ave. until the new space is ready. The movein date will be announced as construction is closer to completion.

Teens take on Jesus Christ Superstar By Kelly Sennott
The Nashua Actorsingers have been pretty rock and roll lately, between last summer’s American Idiot and the fall 2016 production of Rock of Ages. This weekend’s Jesus Christ Superstar follows suit. The Teen Actorsingers present it at the Janice B. Streeter Theater stage Friday, July 14, through Sunday, July 16. Angèlica Rosenthal directs, Jesse Drake musically directs, Logan Higgins choreographs and Kyle Wolcott is the producer. “I wanted to present a rock show kids could participate in,” said Rosenthal, who performed in both American Idiot and Rock of Ages and proposed the musical to the company. “This is one of my favorite shows of all time. I think it’s one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best.” The ’70s rock opera features music by Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice and is loosely based on the gospels’ accounts of the last weeks of Jesus’s life, highlighting the political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus not present in Bible narratives. It premiered on Broadway in 1971 and is sung through from start to finish. This rendition is set in a post-apocalyptic future with an industrial rock setting, complete with barbed wire, trash cans, rusting staircases and Seattle grunge attire. Rosenthal, who loves science fiction, was inspired by the turn the genre has taken the past decade. “What I’ve noticed in science fiction is that when I was growing up it all used to be space travel, like Star Trek. Now, as I look at that genre, I see things like Mad Max and The Walking Dead. Rather than a society moving forward … [writers envision] throwing everything away and rebuilding a future,” Rosenthal said. “[The show] is very pliable. We could have done it traditionally in Jeru-

salem or in Montana or the Land of Oz — it probably would form to almost any setting.” Cast members range in age from 13 to 19, which can be difficult with such a mature show. There are themes of suicide, death, oppression, power and the wish to remain true to oneself and do what’s right. Rosenthal said it was controversial when it first came out, but she’s found the community very supportive, including the kids’ parents. It’s been important to her she maintain a constant dialogue with cast members about content of the ANGELICA ROSENTHAL the show throughout the entire process. “A lot of people kind of shy away from the real darkness in the show, but it was important to me not to do that,” Rosenthal said. “But it’s also important that when [actors] walk out of the theater, they leave their character in the theater. When the curtain falls at the end of the show, the character is done. We worked on a lot of techniques to make sure that happens.” Performing as Mary Magdalene is Kelli Loughlin, who was convinced into auditioning after meeting the directing crew while working behind the scenes for Rock of Ages. As a Sunday school teacher, Loughlin is particularly familiar with the story and loves this new perspective of it. She thinks it’s timeless, applicable to any period, and Rosenthal agrees. “In my opinion, it’s very relatable to now and will be relatable 100 years from now,” Rosenthal said.
A lot of people ... shy away from the real darkness in the show, but it was important to me not to do that.

Rare and exotic animals you don’t often see as household pets will take center stage at the annual Creature Carnival. It’s the largest annual event for Zoo Creatures Pet Store and New England Reptile Distributors in Plaistow, with around 2,000 attendees gathering outside the grounds. This year’s carnival is happening on Sunday, July 16, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and everything is free. “It’s usually kind of like a block party ... outdoors on our facility grounds,” Heather McAtamney of Zoo Creatures Pet Store said. “We’ve been doing it for the past four or five years and every year it gets bigger and more extravagant.” Visitors will get to see reptiles, amphibians and more up close, and there will be crafts, games and a bounce house. Animals from New England Reptile Distributors have appeared for several other smaller educational demonstrations at farms, Boy Scout camps, schools and even birthday parties.

said the Creature Carnival is where the biggest congregation of reptilian species assembles each year. “We often bring out some of our larger snakes and lizards, and more of a variety of them as well,” she said. “What we’ll usually do is set up big tents [on the grounds] and have the animals constantly out, so people get a chance to learn about them and get up close and personal with them.” Reptile expert Kevin McCurley started New England Reptile Distributors more than 30 years ago out of his apartment.

It’s from the upstairs part of the business where you will see most of the animals make appearances at the carnival, according to McAtamney — species from Indonesia, South America, Africa and other overseas regions. “We’ll definitely have our Asian water monitors down [for the event],” she said, “and we’ll also have some reticulated pythons, some ball pythons, some cobras, and our 200-year-old alligator snapping turtle.” Highlights of the event include a venomous reptiles presentation, in

which staff members will explain which species of snakes and lizards produce venom and how it is used. But carnival goers won’t just learn about reptiles. McAtamney said at least three different local K9 rescue groups usually attend to give demonstrations of their own. “These are groups that train the dogs to work with police departments,” she said, “so people will get a chance to learn how they get trained.” Other ongoing activities during the carnival will include face-painting, music, pony rides, a bounce house and a craft station for kids to make their own tie-dye T-shirts.

Most gardeners don’t think of July as the time to plant seeds in the vegetable garden. But it should be. This is a good time to plant many things including broccoli, Happy Rich, lettuce, kohlrabi, fall radishes, carrots and beets. With good warmth and plenty of rain (or water from your hose), these plants will probably do better now than if they were planted in the spring. If you planted peas, spinach or lettuce early this spring, you probably have a bed that is empty now. Instead of just growing weeds, why not get out your seed packets and plant a second crop in that bed? In the spring I generally plant seeds in those little black plastic six-packs. I do that because the soil outdoors is cold and wet, and seeds are prone to rot. Now, however, the soil is warm and seeds will germinate much more quickly. All you have to do is check them daily to be sure that the soil has not dried out. Broccoli, if you read the seed package, takes about 55 days to maturity. So if you plant in mid-July, you should be picking heads of broccoli in mid-September or even a bit earlier. Read the seed packets carefully: as I peruse my Johnny’s Selected Seeds catalog, I see broccoli varieties that mature in anywhere from 48 to 80 days. Some varieties like Arcadia (63 days) are listed as “Tolerant of cold stress.” That one also says it makes lots of side shoots. Since broccoli produces well into October for me, getting side shoots is important. So how should you plant broccoli if you have always put it in as nice little plants that you — or the local grower down the road — has grown? I would suggest planting three seeds in groups about 16 inches apart. Why three seeds? First, not every seed will germinate, so I like to ensure that at least one will come up. But rather than plant them like carrots in a long line, just plant a few seeds where you want one plant. Then as soon as the plants have two real leaves, pull out all but one. And since you’ll see leaves in clumps every 16 inches, you won’t have a hard time identifying them — even if you have never done it before. One of my favorite veggies is one you might not know: Happy Rich. It is a nonheading broccoli type plant. Instead of one big head, it produces many small heads similar to side-shoots on standard broccoli. I get seeds from Johnny’s Seeds. A similar plant is piricicaba, which I get from Hudson Valley Seed Library. Both are quick to mature and have sweet flavored florets. I find they are tasty even if the florets don’t get picked on

time and they produce white or yellow flowers. And the leaves are tasty, too! Carrots and beets can take 55 days to maturity, or up to 80 days. Select early varieties for fall crops now. Yaya and Mokum are both under 60 days, while most storage carrots are about 75 days — which still means they will be ready by the end of September — and long before hard frost. I suggest buying pelleted seeds for carrots if planting now. Pelleted seeds are coated with a layer of clay, which means they are much larger and easier to handle. Plant them an inch or two apart and they will not be competing with each other as tiny seedlings — and will grow faster. Planted an inch apart you will not have to thin them until they are edible-sized. I planted lettuce and arugula seeds in late June. Arugula, which is basically a weed, germinated right away. Both need little or no soil cover — they need light to germinate. I try to plant lettuce once a month all summer and into the fall to keep it coming. Hot weather encourages lettuce to bolt, or produce flowers and seeds. Once the plants start to elongate in preparation for flowering, they get a bit bitter. Edible, but not as sweet. Swiss chard is another quick and easy crop that you can plant now. My High Mowing organic seed catalog has half a dozen different varieties that mature in 50 to 60 days, and produce baby greens in 25. I particularly like the ‘Rainbow Mix’ that has stems of yellow, red and orange. And did you know that beets and Swiss chards are just variations on the same species? Yup. And you can eat the roots of Swiss chard like beets when you pull them in the fall. My favorite radish is one that I will plant soon: Red Meat radish from Johnny’s seeds. It is red in the middle instead of white like a watermelon. It never has the sharp bite of a spring radish, and stays nice even when the radishes get to be golf ball-sized and bigger. If planted in spring, it bolts. In the past I’ve had good luck planting daikon radishes in the summer for fall use, too. These Japanese radishes get huge, and have a distinctive bite. Many use them for pickling. So get out there and plant some seeds. Just be sure that they stay well-watered and most things will do just fine. Even many green beans only need 55 days. So if you were too busy to plant before the Fourth of July, get started now. Read Henry’s twice-weekly blog posts at dailyuv.com/gardeningguy.

I remember this kind of thing from when I was a child, so you’re bringing back memories. I know I have seen them over the years since then but have not paid much attention. So it was interesting to research this for myself as well to provide you with information. This penny in a bottle plus many other items in bottles were mainly used as souvenirs. For you it’s simple to approximately date it because the coin will have it. From what I read they started with a molten cup of glass and then reshaped it into the tiny bottle you see. They were mass-produced so it could not have been too difficult to make. And massproduced means lots of them around even today. The fun isn’t in the value but just the novelty of having one. They run around $10, but what a different collection they would make.

Going down in history
New walking tour explores earliest days of Manchester By Matt Ingersoll
If you’ve ever wondered about the most notable people and places involved in shaping the early history of the Granite State’s largest city, a new tour offered by the Manchester Historic Association will provide some answers. This will be the first walking tour the association has ever given on Manchester’s history pre-dating the Civil War, and before it was incorporated officially as a city. Local historians John Jordan and Dick Duckoff will lead the tour, which will begin at the intersection of Lowell and Chestnut streets on Saturday, July 15, at 10 a.m. “We’ve done Victorian history tours from about the 1870s to the turn of the century but a pre-Civil War tour has never been done before,” Duckoff said. “The first mill actually opened here in 1838, so it’s fascinating that there were people living here even before the war.” Duckoff said the years between the opening of the first mill and the incorporation of Manchester in 1846 is when Manchester was known as the “New Village.” John Clayton, executive director of the Manchester Historic Association, said the tour centers around a relatively small focal point of the city — namely the neighborhoods surrounding Lowell, Walnut, Beech, Union and Bridge streets, which are all within three to four blocks parallel or perpendicular to each other. The people who lived there in the 1840s and 1850s had significant roles in the city’s expansion. “A lot of people in those days lived in rather modest homes in the downtown area … and they made a fortune constructing some of the more impressive parts of Manchester. A lot of that will be discussed on the tour,” Clayton said. According to Duckoff, the tour will discuss the lives of the wealthiest people who lived in that area at the time, including Frank P. Carpenter, who would go on to become president of the Amoskeag Paper Mills; Abraham Olzendam, owner of the A.P. Olzendam hosiery Pre-Civil War Manchester walking tour When: Saturday, July 15, 10 a.m. to noon Where: Tour begins at 88 Lowell St., Manchester, and will travel on Lowell, Walnut, Bridge, Union and Beech streets Cost: $5 for Manchester Historic Association members and $10 for non-members Visit: manchesterhistoric.org

mill; and Daniel Clark, a Stratham native who served as a U.S. Senator from New Hampshire during the years of Abraham Lincoln’s presidency. “There lived three future mayors, a U.S. representative and a U.S. senator, all basically within a three-block area of each other,” he said. “Aretas Blood, who was probably the wealthiest individual in the whole state at the time, lived there as well. … He was the person in charge of manufacturing locomotives and fire engines at one time.” At the time, Manchester went no farther than Orange Street, according to Duckoff. But many of these people who lived in the New Village thrived in the business of buying and selling land that ultimately expanded to many of the northern neighborhoods of the Queen City we know today. “The interesting thing is that Manchester’s history largely depended on these people,” he said. “If they lived anywhere else, the whole city could be very different, and that’s why this early tour is so fascinating.” The tour is expected to run until noon and is one of several the Association has held to highlight important people, landmarks and periods of the city through the Amoskeag Manufacturing Co.’s role in shaping it. “There were so many extraordinary individuals involved with the Amoskeag company that if you focus on the people, the stories never end,” Clayton said.

IN/OUT CAR TALK
Car’s start-up problem may be as simple as a loose connection Dear Car Talk: Our 2007 Mazda CX-7 recently had its steering pump lock up and burn out the belt. The belt and pump were replaced, but a week later, the car is startBy Ray Magliozzi ing strangely: When we turn the key, there is a loud and fast clicking sound from the driver’s side under the hood, and the engine doesn’t even attempt to turn over. After a few tries (about 25 seconds’ worth sometimes), the starter will engage, turn over the engine, and the car starts right up. However, while we drive, various warning lights flicker on and off, like the tractioncontrol system and air-bag lights. What is happening that causes the clicking sound? Is it the starter solenoid failing to actuate the starter motor? Or is it something in the electrical system, and my mechanic didn’t do a thorough enough check? — Benjamin When you hear a rapid clicking noise, Benjamin, it’s usually because the starter motor isn’t getting enough current from the battery. You’re hearing the starter motor’s solenoid trying to engage but failing to. So, it could be a failing battery; it could be a bad alternator that isn’t properly recharging
the battery; or it could be something as simple as a bad connection at the battery. You need to take it back to these guys and have them do a complete test of your charging system. That would include testing the alternator output and load-testing the battery. Could it be related to steering pump failure? It’s possible. If the belt got really chewed up, some debris could have gotten into the alternator and caused it to fail. But it also could be coincidence. If the battery is on the edge of failing, that could just be due to old age. Or the whole thing could be explained by your mechanic’s failure to tighten the battery terminal. If he removed the negative terminal from the battery to disconnect the power before doing the repair, and then forgot to retighten it, that would explain everything. A loose connection would explain why the starter can’t get enough juice sometimes, but then eventually starts right up. It would explain why lights on your dashboard are coming on and off -- as you drive around, the terminal clamp jostles around as you go over bumps. And best of all, it would cost nothing to fix. Unless you count the price of embarrassment that your mechanic will experience. So ask him to check that first, Benjamin.
Dear Car Talk: My 2017 Toyota Tacoma calls for 33 pounds of air in all four tires. Where I live, during certain times of year, temperatures can range from a high in the 70s to a low in the 20s and back to a high in the 50s, all within two or three days. This makes tire pressure difficult to maintain. My question is: What are the safe high and low limits for tire pressure? I know if I go with 35 psi, I will have a hard ride and better gas mileage. If I go with 29 psi, I will have a softer ride and worse gas mileage. But for safety, when do I need to actually adjust it, in either direction? — Gary It’s always better to go too high than too low with tire pressure, Gary (to a point). As you say, tire pressure changes along with the outside temperature. For every change of 10 degrees in the outside temperature, tire pressure changes about 1 psi. So if you fill your tires to 33 psi when it’s 75 degrees out, and it drops to 25 degrees at night, your tires will be at 28 psi. That’s too low. I’ve been told that most tire-pressure monitoring systems warn you when your tire pressure drops by about 10 percent. For you, 10 percent would be a little less than 30 psi.
Low tire pressure always is more dangerous than high tire pressure. When tires are deflated, more rubber touches the ground, the tires heat up and you’re in danger of a blowout. If you remember the Firestone/Ford Explorer fiasco, the aggravating factors that led to many of those flawed tires exploding were heat (high road temperatures) and low tire pressure. Higher pressure generally is not dangerous, as long as you stay well below the “maximum inflation pressure.” That number is listed on each sidewall, and is much higher than your “recommended tire pressure” of 33 psi, Gary. So, in your case, I’d recommend that you put 35 or 36 psi in the tires and just leave it there. You won’t notice any difference in tire wear, handling or braking. And even if the temperature drops 50 degrees, you’ll still have 30 psi or more, which should keep your “low pressure” warning light turned off. And if the temperature goes in the other direction, no harm will be done. As you say, at worst you’ll end up with better fuel economy and a slightly firmer butt massage while you drive around, Gary.

FOOD Ready to grow
Farmers market features youth vendors By Angie Sykeny
News from the local food scene
By Angie Sykeny
You can meet the next generation of local farmers and food producers and be among the first to buy their products at the annual Children’s Market Day hosted by the New Boston Farmers Market on Saturday, July 15. In addition to its regular vendors, the special market day will feature vendors under the age of 18 selling food and other products that they’ve grown or made themselves. “It gives kids in the community who make something or bake something or grow something a chance to get out there and show people what they do and get some business experience,” market co-manager Allison Vermette said. The kid vendors’ products will include things like baked goods and prepared foods, homegrown veggies, dairy products and homemade cat and dog treats. For many of the vendors, Vermette said, the Children’s Market Day is the culmination of a year spent honing their craft and creating

Children’s Market Day Where: New Boston Farmers Market, Town Common, 7 Meetinghouse Hill Road, New Boston When: Saturday, July 15, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost: Admission is free Visit: newbostonfarmersmarket.webs.com, facebook.com/ NewBostonFarmersMarket Want to be a vendor? The Children’s Market Day is open to all kids under age 18 from New Boston and the surrounding area who make or grow their own food, flowers and plants, artwork and other crafts. Vendor signups are open now through the morning of the market for $2 per booth. Vendors supply their own tables, chairs and canopies. Send an email to market co-managers Allison Vermette at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jacki Filiault at email@example.com if interested.

their products. “It’s not usually some spur-of-the-moment thing.” she said. “The kids are doing these things year-round, and this is their time to display it for other people to see.” Alex Fox, 14, of New Boston, is returning for his third year as a vendor at the Children’s Market Day. He and his friend and business partner Will Tipping, known at the market as “the Dough Bros,” will sell their homemade artisan bread, oatmeal bread and pretzels. “It’s great to be able to bake and make some money and do something fun with my friend.” Fox said. “I think it’s cool that we have something like this in a small town like New Boston.” The Dough Bros sold all of their bread their first year and all but one loaf their second, and they’ve already developed a small following; many people who bought the Dough Bros’ debut bread, Fox said, were impressed with their product and sought them out the following year. “It’s a fun and successful day,” Fox said. “I think people really like buying from kids, because you don’t normally see kids going out and making and selling things and doing their own business.”
Fox will be joined at the market by his brother Sam, 11, who will sell his homemade “Sam’s Jams,” and his sister Adia, 9, who will sell her homemade doughnuts. The kids’ mother, Tanya Fox, who is a regular vendor at the market with her business The Frosted Cookie, said the kids look forward to the Children’s Market Day all year and spend a lot of time planning every aspect of their businesses. “They have to go through the whole process of coming up with a product they think will sell, pricing their product, paying the vendor fee and reserving their spot, making sure they have all their supplies and tables and signage,” she said. “It’s a great little venture for them.” The goal of the market is twofold, Vermette said: to give kids who are already growing and making things a venue to share their craft, and to encourage more kids to develop a craft and be involved with their local farmers markets from a young age. “It’s definitely our hope that kids get interested and invested in the market,” Vermette said. “It’s such a great place for everyone to come together, make friends and enjoy and sell New Hampshire-grown and -made products.”

“We’ve had people who have owned restaurants, and we’ve had backyard barbecue people who want to try their hand at competitive barbecuing,” said Sheryl Corey, president of the Brookline Fire Department Association, which is hosting the event in partnership with NEBS. “Some like to stay at the tailgate level, but others move on to bigger competitions. We’ve even had a team that started at our competition and went on to win at the Jack Daniel’s World Championship.” The Grilling Competition will have four categories: pizza, beef, dessert and mystery. The Barbecue Competition will have pork ribs and chicken wings categories. Teams must bring their own ingredients for all categories except the mystery category, in which they’ll be given a basket of mystery ingredients to work with. They will then prepare and cook their dishes on site at the event to be judged by a panel of NEBS-certified judges and others from the competitive barbecue scene. Judges will score each dish by its appearance, taste and tenderness. “Usually these teams are very, very good,” Corey said. “Everyone has their own rub or sauce and their own way of smoking everything, and they won’t give out their secrets. They put a lot of money and time into this.” Additionally, the barbecue chicken wings category will have a people’s choice winner; on Sunday afternoon, attendees can buy five competition chicken wings for $5 and vote for their favorites to win. First-, second- and third-place winners will receive cash prizes and trophies while fourth- and fifth-place winners will receive medallions. Winners may also count their scores toward the NEBS 2017 official rankings if they wish. Though many of the participants are serious competitors, Corey said, the competition is welcoming of more recreational competitors and first-timers just looking to give it a try. “If there are people out there who are thinking about doing a barbecue competition, this is the perfect competition for them to start at and see if it’s something they’d like to get into,” she said. “Barbecue people are very friendly and always willing to lend a hand and answer a question and give tips to new people, without giving away their recipe, of course.” Those not competing can come watch the action, vote for the people’s choice winner and enjoy food concessions including hot dogs, hamburgers and pulled pork sandwiches. Other food events include a barbecue chicken dinner on Saturday night (tickets required), an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast on Sunday morning and a blueberry bash on Sunday afternoon with blueberry pies and other treats for sale.

Experience the full scope of what the Seacoast’s craft beer scene has to offer when 7th Settlement Brewery hosts the third annual Seacoast Microbrew Festival on Saturday, July 15, at Henry Law Park, along the Cochecho River bank in Dover. This year’s fest will feature 20 Seacoast area breweries as well as local food vendors, live music, games and activities. “It’s a celebration of the growing industry of microbreweries,” event coordinator Kate Sanders said. “It’s meant to highlight the small-barrel breweries and the craftsmen that brew in small batches, as opposed to the large domestic breweries.” The lineup will include all 17 breweries that participated in last year’s fest as well as three newcomers: Bad Labs Beer Co. of Somersworth, Four Pines Brewing Co. of Hampton and Woodland Farms Brewery of Kittery, Maine. “It’s a nice opportunity to hit all the breweries you like in one spot and one afternoon, but also to learn about some of the new breweries or even the breweries that have been around for a while that you just never had the chance to hit,” Sanders said. The breweries will have booths set up throughout two tents. Upon admission, 108585

attendees will receive a four-ounce tasting glass to use for unlimited sampling. VIP ticket holders will be granted admission to the festival one hour earlier than the general admission crowd and will receive a Seacoast Microbrew Festival T-shirt. Each brewery will have two brewmasters or representatives who will serve the samples and talk with tasters about what makes their brews unique. “The breweries all have a different specialty and style, so it’s a great opportunity to meet the brewers and learn about their craft and taste some of these special brews that you can find there [at their brewery],” Sanders said. The breweries will each feature two beers, which may be their flagship varieties or special batches brewed exclusively for the festival. A range of styles will be represented, including IPAs, pale ales, porters and more. Sanders said she also expects there to be a number of sour beers and farmhouse ales this year. “We’re seeing a huge trend with those,” she said. “I think we’re going to see a lot more of those than we’ve seen in the past.” In addition to the beers, the festival will feature local restaurants and food trucks selling food, live music by local bands and lawn games and activities like a slip-andslide, giant Jenga and cornhole.

WITH DENIS HUARD
Denis Huard loves hot dogs so much, he made it his living. For 33 years, he worked in sales for the former Schonland hot dog company in Manchester (now Kayem Foods, based in Massachusetts). Then, 10 years ago, he decided to leave that job in pursuit of his longtime dream: owning a hot dog stand. “I don’t know why, but I was always intrigued by hot dog stands,” Huard said. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do ever since I was a kid.” DH’s Doghouse (1451 Front St., Manchester, find them on Facebook) is open seasonally mid-April through mid-November, Wednesday through Sunday, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Ideas from off the shelf
At some point every summer, I find myself falling into a grilled foods rut. I’ve exhausted my recipes for different types of burgers and chicken, and if I see one more hot dog, I’ll scream. Grilled veggies fall into the same boring dinnertime preparations, and picnic-style side dishes have lost their luster. But this recipe for spice-rubbed pork chops with grilled nectarines might just make me a believer in the power of the grill once again. For starters, the spice rub is pantryfriendly. I found the recipe in a magazine and minutes later was combining the ingredients for the rub. Additionally, I think grilled nectarines might be my new favorite food. I’m usually not a big fan of dry rubs. I find they typically combine so many ingredients that the flavors of the seasonings get lost and they end up tasting like the spiciest of the ingredients used. While I was a bit nervous that the same thing was going to happen with this rub, I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of flavor. The sweetness from the brown sugar came through, along with some saltiness, but neither was outdone by the kick from the cayenne. A pinch of paprika added a bit of smokiness, enhanced once on the grill. I followed this recipe, courtesy of Family Circle, almost exactly, only subSpice-rubbed pork chops with grilled nectarines Recipe courtesy of Family Circle 1 tablespoon paprika 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1½ teaspoons garlic powder ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper 2¼ teaspoons kosher salt ¼ plus ½ teaspoon black pepper 6 1-inch-thick, bone-in pork chops 3 nectarines pitted and quartered 2 teaspoons olive oil
stituting boneless pork chops for bone-in, as that’s what I had in my freezer at the time. While the rub was a spicy, salty and sweet combination, the grilled nectarines helped temper any heat I couldn’t handle. My husband said the rub had quite the kick to it, but he chose to eat his pork with rice instead of the nectarines. I, on the other hand, found each bite of pork and nectarine to be perfectly paired and not overly spicy or sweet. Excluding grill time, this recipe took only about 2 minutes to prepare. The smoky flavor of the dry rub was amped up once on the grill, but with simple and sweet sides, this finished meal was next to perfect. The fact that I had everything I needed for the dry rub in my pantry made the recipe even better in my book, especially as it seems too hot to head to the store most days. Overall, the spice rub was a delicately balanced blend of flavors that was enhanced by a little time on the grill and pushed to the next level of delicious with a bite of some simple sides. — Lauren Mifsud

For craft beer enthusiasts, beer festivals are extremely close to heaven on earth. Large-scale tastings provide unparalleled opportunities to explore new breweries and brews, while chatting with the actual brewer in many cases. You can explore your palate by trying entirely new styles and also really zeroing in on the differences within styles you may already be familiar with. That said, at some larger-scale tastings, such as the New Hampshire Brewers Festival (www.granitestatebrewersassociation. org) in Concord next weekend, the bounty can be overwhelming. There are so many beers and it all looks so good. Look, I know, you want to try them all. But you don’t want to end up drunk. Honestly, maybe you do, but I’m here to suggest that that’s not your best move. Plan and focus. You do not need to be all that strategic, but you’ll get more out of the event if you can be at least a little bit focused. Maybe you want to jump into saisons because those are new for you. Or perhaps you want to dive into IPAs. Try to stick to that strategy— at least for a while—and try not to bounce around from style to style too much. It’s not the end of the world, but some beer styles just don’t taste that great back to back. A superhoppy double IPA followed by a blackberry wheat ale might not make your taste buds smile. Think about cleansing the palate with some food between styles. If you like going brewery to brewery sampling all of their offerings, you might ask the brewer if there’s a preferred order.

New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale: A few years after graduating from college, I visited my college friends in Santa Monica and we sat on a beautiful sunny patio and chatted about the college days. And we drank (a lot of) Fat Tire. Fairly new to the region, Fat Tire is easy drinking, with an amber hue and a smooth, slightly sweet finish.

Take notes? I have never taken “notes” at a beer tasting event, but I have grabbed a brewery’s card as a signal that I liked its beer or maybe even written down a particular beer I really liked. I’ve also gone to beer tastings, tried a ton of beer, and walked away confused about which beers and breweries I really enjoyed—and let’s just say I’ve regretted that. Dump beer? Yes and no. Typically, if I’m enjoying the sample, I won’t pour it out. But if not, by all means, dump it. You should give everything a chance, but you’re not going to like everything. Eat. You’re drinking a lot, even if it doesn’t feel like it because you’re sipping out of a four-ounce cup. You need some substance to keep things steady. And again, I suggest having some food as you shift from one style to another. Take a break, have a snack, and have a conversation about what beers you liked most. Ask questions. Maybe you don’t care how many times a particular brewer dry-hopped a particular offering. That’s OK. You don’t have to ask the brewer to delve into the nuts and bolts of the brewing process, but perhaps a particular beer has an interesting flavor you can’t put your finger on; so ask. I find brewers—and many individual beers—have interesting stories. Spotlight: Schilling Pompadour Sometimes you try a beer and it just knocks your socks off. The Pompadour from Resilience Brewing, a side project of Schilling Beer Co. in Littleton, had that effect on me. I haven’t been this excited about a beer in a long time. This beer was perfection. (I mean it.) Unfiltered, this American pale ale features a nice fruity hoppiness. It looks like the more prevalent “New England style” IPAs that have a juiciness to them, but this is different and not as aggressively hopped, which was fantastic. I wanted to drink more of it—a lot more of it.

MUSIC, BOOKS, GAMES, COMICS, MOVIES, DVDS, TV AND MORE Ani DiFranco, Binary (Righteous Babe Records)
Though rarely receiving Joni Mitchell-sized accolades for anything she’s done, DiFranco has become a feminist icon during her nearly 30-year career, mostly by facing current events and women’s issues with a sneer that hasn’t ever sat well with people possessed of a Y chromosome. It might have helped if she’d been a little less … I don’t know, branded in her eyes-closed, gently histrionic delivery. Whatever your impression of her, though, it’d be hard to claim this isn’t a great time for her to gather a new generation of audience, so here she gets depressively symphonic with “Pacifist’s Lament,” whose lyrics wonder why we can’t all get a time-out for all the divisiveness. The record is naturally less happy (if you can call her stuff happy) than 2014’s Allergic to Water for obvious reasons, but “Terrifying Sight” has a casual syncopation and quirkiness that’s hypnotizing. Her chilly, disillusioned 2017 ode to Barack Obama, “Deferred Gratification,” is here also. A — Eric W. Saeger Ted Chubb, Gratified Never Satisfied (Unit Records)
If you dig the sweet trumpet of Sean Jones or Wynton Marsalis, you’d do well to clue into this New Jersey-by-way-of-Ohio guy, whose past experiences include stints playing with the touring company of Broadway’s Jersey Boys and helping out with Jazz House Kids, a community arts organization that teaches kids jazz, headed up by the legendary Christian McBride. Chubb, a 20-year-veteran of the jazz scene, jacked his stock by studying trumpet with William B. “Prof” Fielder, who coached the duo mentioned above, as well as Terence Blanchard and Terrell Stafford, but regardless, stuff this smooth has to start with a deep well of ability. An incredibly friendly, very listenable album, this is Chubb’s first as a leader of a sextet, after blowing the doors open with quartets in two previous records. Half the tunes are his own, demonstrating great melodic bop flow on the title-track opener and (even more) “Little Sid,” deep torch flavor on “Space” and eloquent asphalt sizzle on “Tuesday.” Covers include a delightfully modernized version of Brooks Bowman’s “East of the Sun” and an exuberant, 1970s-tinged rip of Wayne Shorter’s “Adams Apple.” A+ — Eric W.

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases
• Japanese noise-metal whatevers Boris seemed due for a new LP, and guess what, it’s here, titled Dear, supposedly out July 14! My experience with those guys has felt like listening to a drone band trying to be a 1960s-style fuzz-psychedelica trip, with long solos and long self-indulgent messes left all over the carpet, and then you spend a few minutes sweeping them out of your head and wonder why anyone would buy this, except for the three or four minutes where they blow away anything Hendrix ever did, and ... wait a second, I thought they broke up! No, wait, they changed their mind. This is their 23rd album, and it will include the single “Absolutego,” which was the name of their first album — see what they did there? The video is pretty cool, just shots of them being all rad, and they have Sunn and Orange amps. The song exemplifies what they do best: drone. Master of Realitystyle bong-hit rock and a cheap, faraway vocal sound that even the 1969 version of Mountain would have axed with a “Come on, can’t we get a real engineer in here?” Awesome Factor: middling. • Hey hipster-folkies, which Waxahatchee do you prefer, the one where she was recording albums in her bedroom and singing about Sam Cooke, or the newer Ivy Tripp version, where she sounded like Lisa Loeb and Postal Service and Pixies and all that other stuff (which was actually pretty decent)? Who cares, let’s just go check out her forthcoming new album Out in the Storm, to see if those alpha hipsters at Merge Records gave her some extra money so she could sound like Kellie Pickler or whatever. The single, “Silver,” is raw and kinda no-wave, but shoegaze, like Boredoms but with a quiet weird girl singing. Awesome Factor: above average. • Michelle Zauner used to be the front-person for Philadelphiabased emo band Little Big League, but now she’s a one-person band called Japanese Breakfast, and she lives in Oregon. Her second album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, streets on July 14, the most recent single from which is “Boyish,” a bizarre but very listenable shoegaze-jazz-torch ditty that’s nice and beat-up and lo-fi, a bit like Siouxsie singing for Glasvegas. Awesome Factor: (Not applicable — I stopped giving those out because it didn’t catch on.) • Canadian fivesome Silverstein are labeled as “post-hardcore,” which is this generation’s way of reminding old people that punk is completely, most sincerely dead. Their new album, Dead Reflection, is heading to your SpongeBob-decorated iPod any second now, and there’s a song called “Retrograde,” which starts out like Dillinger Escape Plan, then quickly abandons anything cool and turns into more moldy screamo. It’s like listening to a stereo battle between one guy with an All Time Low CD and another guy blasting Avenged Sevenfold. People actually like this, or is it a giant troll? — Eric W. Saeger

In 1976, 17-year-old Christine Woodside wrote to the curator of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum in Mansfield, Missouri, seeking a job. She received a decline via a light pink envelope and spent the summer making sandwiches at a nearby restaurant instead. Woodside was not deterred. She still devoured everything she could about the author of her favorite books, which she admired for their themes of independence. In college, she cited By the Shores of Silver Lake for a paper on the American West. “I was fascinated with Laura Ingalls Wilder from the beginning. Even as an adult, I found myself rereading the books and admiring the straightforward pluck that she had, and I wanted to know more about her. I wanted to know what happened after the books,” Woodside said via phone. Woodside, a journalist and avid outdoors person who lives in the Connecticut River Valley, loves writing about ordinary Americans and their clashes with nature. She edits Appalachia, the Appalachian Mountain Club’s twice-yearly journal, and recently edited New Wilderness Voices, an essay anthology containing themes of wilderness, wildness and humanity. But it was a 2000 road trip with her husband and two kids that cemented her determination to write about Wilder — specifically, a stop at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library in West Branch, Iowa, which holds the Rose Wilder Lane papers, including letters between mother and daughter. “They weren’t living in the same place at the time, but there was a lot of evidence about their collaboration,” Woodside said. “It was undeniable the way Laura was completely relying on Rose’s help.” Woodside’s September 2016 book, Libertarians on the Prairie: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Rose Wilder Lane, and the Making of the Little House Books, tells of this secret mother-daughter writing collaboration. Wilder had always wanted to tell people about her childhood on the frontier, but it was her daughter, Lane, who had the writing chops to get it done. “[Lane] had been writing magazine fic-

Christine Woodside on Rose Wilder Lane’s contribution tion for a long time and had traveled all over the world and published a couple of books,” Woodside said. “She was sure she could help her mother get that story into print. Laura wrote her story on tablets, handed it to Rose, and Rose tried to turn it into a magazine article.” Lane wasn’t able to sell it in New York. So, without telling her mother, Lane took some of the material and created what became the first children’s book of the series, Little House in the Big Woods. People lapped it up. “It was the Great Depression. People were struggling. There was fear for jobs and incomes. Banks were closing. Laura’s message was: enough is as good as a feast. The pioneers had been able to take very little and make a lot out of it, and they were satisfied with their freedom and their independence,” Woodside said. “The pioneer life was one that many, many people had lived. … But nobody had thought to write a kid’s book [about it] at that point.” Self-reliance was the Wilder family business, but it was Lane who shaped the tone, ideas and the politics of the books — freedom, respect for free markets, love of nature and natural order. “Rose’s influence in the books is pretty profound. She had to pull together the manuscripts, and she would inject scenes and emphasize aspects of life underscoring that Americans need to be free. Americans need little government,” Woodside said. “Simultaneous to this, she became very involved in the anti-communist movement, which was the beginning of modern conservatism. Rose’s efforts led to a group of people starting the Libertarian party.” Woodside’s research involved lots of travel, lots of reading — papers, newspaper stories, biographies, letters — and interviews with Laura Ingalls Wilder experts, including Bill Holtz, author of The Ghost in the Little House: A Life of Rose Wilder Lane, and Susan Wittig, who wrote a novel based on the mother-daughter collaboration, A Wilder Rose. Woodside determined her political angle with the help of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Farah Stockman, whom she met via a Boston writing group. Woodside talks about the book at the Griffin Free Public Library July 19, and visits Hanover and the White Mountains afterward to discuss New Wilderness Voices and finding inspiration on the trail. She’s happy to see the result after years of work and lots of help. “What I learned during this endless project was what an active community writing a book really is,” Woodside said.

In the eight years since Sen. Al Franken arrived in Washington, he writes, the question he is asked most often is, “Is being a United States senator as much fun as working on Saturday Night Live?” He replies that the answer has always been “NO!!! Why would it be?” He then usually goes on to admit that while it isn’t the most fun job, representing his home state of Minnesota in the Senate is, without a doubt, the best job he’s ever had. In Al Franken, Giant of the Senate, we get to learn all about Franken and his rather circuitous route to the Senate. From his early days in comedy, when he worked with his best friend Tom Davis as part of a performing team, to his job as writer and sometimes performer at Saturday Night Live, Franken tells of a life filled with magic, intelligence, political satire and laughter. Had he limited this book to his working at SNL and writing movie scripts, I would have been happy and would be right in saying that Franken is an accomplished man. But put U.S. senator on that resume and, well, now we’re talking about an incredibly accomplished and truly extraordinary person. Franken tells it all in this memoir, his seventh bestselling book. Using plenty of self-deprecating humor, Franken walks us through how he got from a small town in Minnesota to the glitzy stages of Saturday Night Live complete with personal tales of comedic brilliance as well as stories about drugs bad enough to take a few cast members’ lives. Some of the skits Franken is most proud about working on in his 15 years at SNL are the political ones where the cast tried to do “well-placed political satire that made the audience laugh and had the virtue of not being stupid.“ It was those skits, those kernels of shaping opinion through political commentary, that first led Franken to a political show on Comedy Central: Indecision ’92 (think early The Daily Show). It was essentially a running, often sarcastic and humorous commentary on the Republican Convention. This effort led the way to his book Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot and Other Observations and then to other speaking and entertaining gigs. It soon became obvious to Franken (who calls himself an open-minded liberal) that the way to get people to change for the better was through political discussion. And if you could use humor to make your point, so much the better. Franken writes about being inspired by Democrat Minnesota Sen. Paul Wellstone, who fought for the “poor and disposed, for homeless vets and for people suffering from mental illness.” “Politics,” Wellstone would say, “is not
about power. Politics is not about money. Politics is not about winning for the sake of winning. Politics is about improvement of people’s lives.” It was Wellstone’s untimely death in a plane accident and the fact that Franken had been so inspired by him, that made Franken decide to run for the Senate position. Anyone with even a faint interest in politics will find Franken’s journey fascinating. Get the popcorn ready, because you’ll learn about raising money, running campaigns, and schmoozing within the Senate — it’s a far cry from a live performance in a darkened comedy hall. And Franken’s justification for his entire political career is that he does it because it is the right thing to do. In Giant of the Senate Franken is in his element. He uses his sharp wit in order to instruct. It’s clear that he is a teacher at heart (with a big heart). I’ve long held that although I admire and respect Franken, and even with his probing, targeted questions during recent confirmation hearings, I didn’t think he’d be a good candidate for president. He’s too funny — he wouldn’t be taken seriously. All they’d have to do is find a picture of him dressed as Stuart Smalley. He’s just not right. But after reading this book, I’ve changed my opinion. Franken just might be a formidable presidential candidate. My only criticism of Giant? The book ends too soon. I would have loved to read Franken’s views on the Comey firing and everything that has since come out about Russian involvement and collusion, but hey, that’s what sequels are made for, right? A thoroughly enjoyable read, it’s witty and will have you literally laughing out loud while you nod your head in agreement. A must read for anyone who cares about where our country is heading. A — Wendy E. N. Thomas

Competitors are chosen at random two at a time to go head-to-head in a trivia competition, quizzed by a panel of nerd judges on the selected topic. The winner gets to perform his or her original nerd poem and receives a prize pack with items donated from Double Midnight Comics, NeonBomb and Level Up Gaming.

POP CULTURE FILM REVIEWS BY AMY DIAZ
Spider-Man: Homecoming (PG-13)
Peter Parker does whatever a spider can while also living as a dorky teen in Spider-Man: Homecoming, a solid Marvel Cinematic Universe movie and the best Spider-Man movie in years.
Peter (Tom Holland) has the nifty suit Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) left him after Captain America: Civil War and now, a few months later, is eagerly awaiting his next mission. Happy (Jon Favreau), Tony’s assistant, is Peter’s contact for all things Avenger-related and tries, unsuccessfully, to remind Peter that they will call him. Meanwhile, Peter spends his days trying to stop petty crime in his Queens neighborhood, occasionally getting a free churro for his efforts. On one such patrol, he stumbles on an ATM robbery by criminals with alien-tech weapons. He warns Tony about their gear, but when Peter doesn’t get an enthusiastic response he decides to investigate on his own. Eventually, he meets Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton), or Vulture as we think of him when he’s wearing a metal bird suit that allows for flight and slicey violence. Toomes had the city contract to clean up after the alien/Avengers battle of the first Avengers movie, but then a federal department (which has contracted with Stark) takes over the job. Deciding that the rich guys shouldn’t get all the cash, Toomes and his crew use a truckload of alien debris to reverse-engineer weapons to sell and to use in heists for bigger weapons. Always below the radar of Stark and the Avengers, Toomes is furious when a clumsy Spider-Man starts to foil his plans. Meanwhile, Peter’s Spider-Man-ing has pushed out all other aspects of his life, worrying his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), who isn’t aware of his alter-ego, and his best buddy Ned (Jacob Batalon), who doesn’t know either, until he happens to see Peter in costume crawling on the ceiling. Ned is convinced that this new development will give them entree into their advanced school’s cool crowd. Peter disagrees until he hears his crush, Liz (Laura Harrier), talk admiringly about Spider-Man. Peter is so busy trying to figure out if there’s a way to use Spider-Man to impress Liz that he doesn’t even notice the acerbic Michelle (Zendaya), who clearly harbors a crush on him. Crushes and supervillains — the standard teenage drama. Spider-Man: Homecoming reminded me that Marvel knows how to make a mighty fine superhero movie, something that DC’s expanded universe has had a hard time with (i.e. everything before Wonder Woman) and that even Marvel itself isn’t always perfect with (the fine-OK Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, for example). Homecoming has
HIPPO | JULY 13 - 19, 2017 | PAGE 50
a tight core cast, stays mainly with the Spider-Man story (even the Tony Stark stuff, which is used in the perfect limited amount, is from the Spider-Man point of view) and it keeps the focus on Peter Parker and his maturation as a superhero. And the stakes are, in the overall Marvel scheme of things, small — saving this small group of people or preventing a low-level bad guy from arming more low-level bad guys. Precisely because the stakes are not “save the world from total destruction, again” these “small” stakes mean more. Spider-Man is friendly, an affable teenager who still gets unironically excited about putting together a Lego set with his buddy. And, more importantly for the action, he is also very neighborhood. He is mostly protecting Queens and Queens-based or Queens-adjacent people. In addition to solid tone, plot, pacing and emotion, Homecoming has a winning SpiderMan in Tom Holland. He was a delightful jolt of energy in Civil War and he hits all the right notes here. Thankfully, we jump past the spider-bite-origin stuff yet Spider-Man is still a young dork: accomplished but not entirely sure of what to do with his supernatural or natural talents and realistically awkward — both when trying to apprehend criminals and when trying to talk to a girl he likes. It’s also enjoyable to see Spider-Man figure out what he can do, physically speaking, and what he ought to do, ethically. Not that everything has to go to a place of political and social commentary but Homecoming has that too. The Queens of this movie and Peter’s school are appropriately ethnically diverse and while that fact is no big deal in the movie, it still feels like a big deal (worth cheering about) that it’s no big deal. And then there’s Vulture, who makes the not-incorrect point that Tony Stark also made his money selling high-tech weapons. Should only the billionaires be allowed to profit from the odd new world of aliens and superheroes?, Vulture argues. This bit of character bio makes
Toomes’ villainy more ordinary and thus more genuinely scary, a person trying to get theirs even if they unintentionally make the wider world more dangerous. Spider-Man: Homecoming feels like exactly the right kind of superhero movie for this moment in pop culture and in the wider culture — much as Wonder Woman does, if for different reasons — making it a good reminder that there are many roads to superhero-movie and expanded cinematic universe success. A Rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence, some language and brief suggestive comments. Directed by Jon Watts with a screenplay by Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley and Jon Watts & Christopher Ford and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: Homecoming is two hours and 13 minutes long and distributed by Sony Pictures.
The Beguiled (R)
Women care for a Union soldier in Confederate Virginia in The Beguiled, a strange yet interesting movie from Sofia Coppola.
Tweenaged Amy (Oona Laurence) is one of the few remaining students at Farnsworth Seminary, a girls’ boarding school in Virginia during the Civil War. While gathering mushrooms, she finds the wounded Union Corporal John McBurney (Colin Farrell). She brings him back to the school, where headmistress Martha (Nicole Kidman) tends his injury, planning to hand him to the Confederate army when he heals. Also perhaps she keeps him around because being stuck at Farnsworth in a war zone is terrifying but boring. A man, particularly one whose injuries make him less threatening, is a nice change of pace. Certainly Edwina (Kirsten Dunst), a French teacher, looks deeply bored with her life. Though Martha initially takes care of John, Edwina also strikes up a friendship with him.
In fact, all the girls, including the older-teen-aged Alicia (Elle Fanning), form relationships with John, finding excuses to talk to him and dressing up in their nice clothes and jewelry. John, a recent Irish immigrant who joined the Army for quick cash, greatly enjoys the attention. Is he consciously running an elaborate game on the women to keep himself from the certain death of a Confederate jail? Is he just a lucky meathead who likes the food and female company being thrown at him? Is he something more predatory? The movie leaves his exact nature vague, as it does each woman’s feelings toward him. Are any of the women actually in love with him or is he just a distraction? Or do the old rules of male-female relationships no longer apply to these marooned women in the middle of a war? It’s a whole lit class of questions, dressed up with corsets and moss-draped trees. In The Beguiled, as with Sofia Coppola movies in general, Coppola seems fascinated by young women pushed out of their depth. Much more fascinated than I am, either now or back when I could still qualify as a young woman. This quality can lend a dippiness to her movies sometimes, especially when she goes overboard with, like, the closeups of Elle Fanning. Yet, I also appreciate her relatively nuanced approach to girlhood and female relationships. The girls of Farnsworth are competitive, snippy and loyal, all at once, all naturally. Some of the movie’s best moments — and some of its most subtle moments — are when the women hate each other and look out for each other at the same time. I also enjoy, with reservations, the off-ness of everything in this and other Coppola movies. Here, the world is three steps off center — which actually fits the wartime setting. The movie captures the situation’s odd blend of societal upheaval and the dull ordinariness of, like, tending a garden and mending clothes. And it does so without (thankfully) asking us to feel sorry for these girls and the end of their barbaric society. Nobody here feels like a victim. The actresses’ performances — a little oddball with a hint of malevolence — help underline this. I don’t recommend going out of your way to find The Beguiled at a theater unless you are a hardcore Sofia Coppola fan (which I am, I guess? Without really meaning to be?). But, when you stumble across it some day, it’s worth a lazy weekend viewing if only because it is so weirdly, fascinatingly different. BRated R for some sexuality. Directed by Sofia Coppola, who also wrote this version of the screenplay (based on a novel by Thomas Cullinan and the 1971 screenplay by Albert Maltz and Irene Kamp, credited at Grimes Grice), The Beguiled is an hour and 33 minutes long and distributed by Focus Features.

Donaher celebrated debut CD at Shaskeen By Michael Witthaus
I Swear My Love Is True is a juicy serving of power pop pleasure; the debut CD from Donaher will please fans of Jimmy Eat World, Fountains of Wayne and similarly buoyant pre-millennial music. There’s a guest appearance from ex-Get Up Kids singer Matt Pryor; that and lyrics about romance at the mall (“it can be the two of us/I’ll buy you an Orange Julius”) make it clear where the Manchester quartet’s sweet spot lay, decade-wise. Their bio page confesses to an overaffinity for My So-Called Life reruns, but there’s more to Donaher than Blockbuster nights spent with girls named Heather, Mandy and Courtney. Band front man Nick Lavallee said recently that the 10-song collection is a cycle, representing his difficult personal journey of the past two years. “I wanted to write a record that on the surface was very much a pop rock album, but if you paid a bit more attention to it, maybe the listener would discover a narrative,” he said. “Some of my favorite records are albums that are done that way. Pinkerton by Weezer is one.” Lavallee played with punk band 5 Bucks before switching to comedy in the early 2010s. He’s been successful, touring the country doing his standup act and helping build a formidable alt comedy scene locally at the Shaskeen Pub in Manchester. When Lavallee got sober, an unexpected void formed, one he filled with music. Donaher When: Friday, July 14, 9 p.m. Where: Shaskeen Pub, 909 Elm St., Manchester More: donahertheband.com

“I just found myself with idle hands; if Friday or Saturday came and I didn’t have a gig, I had to do something. Lego sets only went so far,” he said with a laugh. “I’m a creative person, so I started playing music and writing songs. … I was able to get that part of me back through sobriety.” He reached out to longtime friend Tristan Omand. “When my old band broke up, I sold him my Marshall. He was 15 or 16,” Lavallee said. “He’s like my other little brother.” A rhythm section of drummer Lee Sevigny and bass player Adam Wood completes the band. The record begins with sobriety, then romantic anxiety; on “Heather,” the singer frets about graying hair while falling for a “too young” girl. Love, idealized and passionate, forms the disc’s midsection. The infectious “Mandy Desmarais (Call Me Soon)” and “Wrong Side of Webster Street” are both standouts. “Think Big Star’s Thirteen,” Lavallee said of the two songs. A video of “Mandy” stars fellow come-
dian Jenny Zigrino. No Donaher members appear. “Who wants to see me? And people see enough of Tristan,” Lavallee said. “Jenny is smart and awesome. Who would not want to look at her walking out to the perfect summer jam?” Side 2 — a vinyl version arrives this fall — traces the arc of a love; in, out and downward through. In Lavallee’s words, it’s “the five stages of grieving … falling in love and knowing there was a finite time to that relationship, but I wouldn’t have met that person had I not gotten sober. … I don’t believe in a higher power outside of love, and that’s what this album represents.” Lavallee met Pryor through a Twitter connection, and the two became friends at one of his solo shows. “He seemed to like my story about how I used to be in this pop punk band and then turned to comedy,” he said. Pryor invited him to guest on his podcast — “As a fanboy, that would have been enough.” After a sold-out Get Up Boys show in Chicago some time later, Lavallee asked Pryor to sing a second lead on “No Other Dude.” “I had written that part kind of with Matt in mind … I just threw it on him, asked if he’d do it and he said yeah,” Lavallee said. “I didn’t want to tell the rest of the band until I had it, didn’t want to get their hopes up. Matt turned it around in just a few days, and it sounds so great.” I Swear My Love Is True is both cathartic and hopeful, but it bounces like a pop record should. Lavallee and his bandmates are proud of that fact. “It’s about finding your way through a lot of hard places,” he said. “But if you didn’t know the back story, it just sounds like a good record to turn up on the radio.”

SIGNS OF LIFE 1964 the Beatles released their first film, A Hard Day’s Night, and all bets were off. I went to my local theater to see it the first day it opened and stayed for three showings. To this day, it is my favorite film ever. … I was enthralled and couldn’t wait to spread the word. If you love something, share it. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Parents are always proud of you when you start playing a musical instrument. Well, other than the violin, which can make sounds that can take the enamel off your teeth. They also get less patient when you play and sing at the top of your lungs at two in the morning, but it’s all part of the process. Keep that in mind. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) When we got back to class, Mrs. Harding passed out the good paper and crayons and told us to draw the thing that impressed us the most. … The things that impressed me the most were these giant banana squashes that were a yellow-orange color and were taller than I was. You will encounter impressive giant banana squashes. Aries (March 21 – April 19) The new crowd was very attentive. It was remarkable how good we became when people actually listened. They’re listening. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) From the moment I centered my first piece of clay, I was hooked. … Within a week, I had quit all my other classes and now spent all my time in the pottery lab. … There were a million clamorous events happening out there in the world, but inside the lab there was peace and tranquility. Do what you need to do to feel centered. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) They didn’t have a lot of wild deer or other game in South Central L.A. But here I was in the wilds of Alberta looking for the elusive, giant moose or whatever! Seek the moose.

All quotes are from Cheech is Not My Real Name … But Don’t Call Me Chong!, by Cheech Marin, born July 13, 1946. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) The great thing about Granada Hills during this period was that anything that happened in town was the first time it ever happened. Hughes Market was the first big supermarket to come to Granada Hills. The opening was a threeday festival with carnival rides, free samples of everything edible, and appearances by celebrities whose claim to fame was supermarket openings. It’s a time of firsts. Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) And then one day I saw the future … MTV. Look ahead. Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) But most of my heroes did not go to Harvard. They probably went to some lesser state university, if they went to college at all. But they were awake in class. And they had a love of learning. Stay awake in class. Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) High school was like jumping in the deep end of the pool without knowing if you really knew how to swim. Try the back float. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) At age eleven, I started going to the library and checking out all the art books. In this fashion I learned about Rembrandt, Caravaggio, van Gogh, Picasso, Vermeer, and all the great giants of Western art. ... In addition, I started going to museums to see paintings live and up close. This was a whole different experience from seeing them reproduced in a book. Combine different perspectives to get a full understanding. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) In any long career, I don’t care if you’re the Beatles, Elvis, or Frank Sinatra, there are going to be times when nothing is happening and you must reinvent yourself. It might start with a new hair style. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Then in

A frustrated victim of bedbugs in Augusta, Maine, reacted to city inaction by bringing a cup of bedbugs to a municipal office building and slamming it down on the counter, scattering about 100 insects and forcing the closure of several offices as officials scrambled to contain them. The apartment dweller had requested help finding other housing, but city officials told him he didn’t qualify.
Are cute vegetables easier to swallow? A Chinese company has developed fruit and vegetable molds that form growing foods into little Buddhas, hearts, stars and skulls. Farmers afix the plastic molds over the stems of growing plants, and the fruit fills the mold as it grows. Some designs include words, and the company also offers custom molds.

• Because leaving your falcon at home while you do errands is too painful, highend automaker Bentley now offers a customized SUV featuring a “removable transportation perch and tether” for hunting birds and a wood inlay in the shape of a falcon on the dash. At a starting price of $230,000, the Bentayga Falconry also features a refreshment case and special compartments for bird hoods and gauntlets. “Falconry is regarded as the sport of kings in the Middle East, so it was vital that the kit we create ... appeal to our valued customers there and around the world,” noted Geoff Dowding with Bentley’s Mulliner division.

• The Happiest Place on Earth was a little less joyful for 17 visitors in June, when a hazardous materials team was dispatched to Main Street at Disneyland after park-goers reported being struck by feces. Experts quickly realized that rather than being victims of a bathroom bomber, the park guests had been regrettably positioned beneath a flock of geese flying overhead. The victims were ushered to a private restroom to clean up and were provided with fresh clothing. • Maintenance workers at the courthouse in Jonesboro, Arkansas, are fed up with people urinating in the elevators, especially considering that restrooms are within spitting distance of the elevators. Craighead County officials hope to stem the tide with newly installed security cameras, which have caught three men in the act since their installation last fall.
• Japan’s Samurai Age store, which offers novelty samurai apparel, is featuring a new line of samurai armor outfits for cats and dogs. The body armor is sized for small pets, but custom orders for larger sizes are possible and can include a helmet and mask. (Samurai enthusiasts can also order armor for dolls.) • Suspicions were aroused in New Hope, Alabama, when veteran mail carrier Susanna Burhans, 47, was seen throwing food at a dog along her route. On June 1, she was charged with aggravated animal cruelty after the dog’s owner found a nail-filled meatball near his house, and a subsequent X-ray revealed nails in its stomach. The USPS has put the mail carrier on non-duty status. • Thailand’s Scorpion Queen, who holds the Guinness World Record for holding a scorpion in her mouth (3 minutes and 28 seconds), shocked onlookers in June as she let scorpions crawl all over her body and in and out of her mouth as part of a show in Pattaya, a city on the Gulf of Thailand. Kanchana Kaetkaew also holds the record for co-habiting with 5,000 scorpions in a 12-meter-square glass enclosure for 33 days.
The Zoological Wildlife Conservation Center in Rainier, Oregon, is offering sleepovers in its sloth sanctuary. The visit includes a tent with a cot and satellite TV (in case the animals are being too slothlike). Visitors, who pay $600 (double occupancy) for the 12-hour experience, are asked to whisper so as not to stress out the sloths. Visit weirduniverse.net.
