Leave no trace Some of my favorite ways to describe summer in New Hampshire are with four-letter words: hike, bike, swim, golf. As a person who spends a fair amount of time outdoors, I know one four-letter word that dampens my spirits and diminishes my enthusiasm for being outside: tick. I grew up in a rural part of New Hampshire where many of my days were spent romping through the woods with my dogs. Ticks were not a part of my vocabulary then as we rarely found them on our animals and especially not on us. But times are different and the reality of climate change is starting to become undeniable even to the staunch critics. Gov. Sununu said that New Hampshire will not be joining the U.S. Climate Alliance because he feels like the pact is not applicable to us. For a state that relies heavily on its natural landscape for economic and personal opportunities, this could prove to be a big mistake. Opting out of any effort to preserve our resources not only shows a lack of leadership but could adversely affect our future. His decision could put us in a position where our natural landscape is no longer an asset to tourists and residents alike. The influx of ticks is already affecting the quality of life for many of us. My once peaceful walks in the woods are now filled with anxiety as I worry about rubbing up against too much grass or pondering the number of ticks that I’ll need to pick off my dogs. New Hampshire Public Radio recently reported about the moose population and the effect climate change has on their health and vitality. The study argued that, one day, New Hampshire’s environment may not be conducive to supporting this iconic beast. We all, as residents, recognize the importance of ensuring that our outdoor time is as enjoyable as possible. Whether it’s hiking, hunting, fishing or even golfing, we are experiencing only a taste of what could happen if we are unable to slow climate change. The more these changes affect our natural landscape, the more we are driven from experiencing the outdoors, and the more likely we are to feel disconnected to the land that we call home. Although we cannot do it alone, we all can do our part to try to curb the man-made portion of climate change. Our state’s leaders can fund and support efforts to diversify energy, we can continue to reduce our footprint through recycling and waste management, and we can all try to make small sacrifices needed to leave the world a better place.

NEWS & NOTES “Drug-infested den”

One of the many revelations that emerged from the release by the Washington Post Aug. 3 of phone call transcripts of Donald Trump talking with the leaders of Mexico and Australia is a less than flattering characterization Trump made about the Granite State. He told Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in January, “I won New Hampshire because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den.” Trump won the Republican primary in New Hampshire but lost the state to Hillary Clinton in the general election. The quote immediately triggered outrage and pushback among state leaders, including prominent Republicans. The fully Democratic congressional delegation was the first to speak out. Sen. Maggie Hassan called Trump’s comment “disgusting” in a tweet and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen tweeted that it was “absolutely unacceptable” for the president to talk about New Hampshire in this way and said it was a “gross misrepresentation” of the state and the epidemic. Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter took the opportunity to criticize Trump for failing to “help us fight the opioid epidemic” and Rep. Annie Kuster called his comments “ignorant and insulting,” according to released statements. Republican Gov. Chris Sununu also weighed in, saying in a press release, “The President is wrong. It’s disappointing his mischaracterization of this epidemic ignores the great things this state has to offer.”

Voter info

A court hearing was held Monday, Aug. 7, to review a challenge made by two lawmakers and the American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire to the secretary of state’s intention to provide voter information to President Trump’s election fraud commission, the AP reported. It was resolved in court the same day. According to court filings, the state is arguing Secretary of State Bill Gardner is treating the request by the commission as a Right to Know request. But Republican state Rep. Neal Kurk and Demo-

cratic state Sen. Bette Lasky are arguing Gardner doesn’t have the authority to give the names, addresses and voting history to the Trump administration. The two parties compromised by allowing Gardner to provide scanned, unsearchable PDFs of voter checklists rather than a digital database.

According to NHPR, Sig Sauer reportedly said the concern is unfounded and that its gun “meets and exceeds” all standards for safety.

Earlier this year, Gov. Chris Sununu signed a law that takes effect Sept. 8 and changes the way voters are vetted during the registration process in an effort to weed out folks who are only in the state temporarily. “I think we wanted to kind of home in on the temporary — the less-than-30-day temporary residents,” said state Sen. Regina Birdsell, the bill’s prime sponsor. “Sometimes those [are people] working on campaigns that travel from … state to state during a primary season or even a general election.” The goal of the bill, Birdsell said, is a “preventative measure” to address the concerns of her constituents. “From what I heard from my constituents, they didn’t feel comfort in the integrity of our electoral system and this was in response to some of their concerns,” Birdsell said. For voters who have a state-issued ID with their current address on it, nothing will appear to have changed. But for people who recently moved or are registering for the first time in a community, they’ll need to prove they reside in that community with documentation. “That’s basically, as far as I’m concerned, that’s it. That’s the biggest change,” Birdsell said. While that may not seem significant, voter rights groups are concerned it may discourage voter registration and town clerks and election monitors are faced with additional work.

Past attempts to weed out temporary residents or campaign workers included bills that would have done away with same-day registration and defined “domicile” as having lived in New Hampshire for 30 days before election day. That is not what this law does. People in New Hampshire are still going to be able to register on the same day as the election, and vote even if they don’t have their “proof” of domicile with them that day. But the spirit of the 30-day rule lives on in the way in which officials will now start to define temporary voters and enforce the new proof requirements. So, what does a voter need bring in order to register? David Scanlan, the deputy secretary of state, said if you go into the town offices to register prior to 30 days before election day, you need to show an ID with an address in that town or city ward. Absent an ID, you can show a government issued check, a federal picture ID or a vehicle registration. If you don’t have those, the clerk will instruct you to

leave and come back with one of those documents. If you don’t have those, you can use other forms of documentation to state your intent to make your physical address your domicile. For college students, this can be a letter from their university or dorm supervisor. Homebuyers can show evidence of a recent purchase; renters who have a lease longer than 30 days can show lease documents, and utility bills sent to that address will also suffice. Someone who registers within 30 days of an election or on election day and doesn’t have their proof of domicile will be able to fill out a different form. Scanlan said the first page is essentially the same but Page 2 replaces the old domicile affidavit, which he said has been part of New Hampshire law since the late 1970s. Instead, the voter agrees to supply the required documents within 10 days. If the town clerk’s office isn’t open for 20 hours or more each week, that deadline gets extended to 30 days. In practice, one does not need to reside in their address for 30 days ahead of an election so long as they demonstrate their “intent” to stick around as this law defines it. It defines being in the state for temporary purposes as being here for fewer than 30 days, unless intent to domicile is otherwise proven, and is here for tourism, visiting family and friends, performing short-term work, volunteering or working to influence voters. Failure to provide the necessary documents in the time given will result in local town officials sending notices to individuals about removing their names from the checklist. Then it triggers a sort of follow-up investigation. “If they don’t provide that information then … the local election officials are authorized to follow up on that, either by reviewing documents that are already in the town records … or they would be authorized to visit the voter’s location … to confirm that that person resides there,” Scanlan said. An earlier version of the bill allowed for towns to use police as part of this process, but that language was removed from the final version over concerns that it intimidated voters. 7

New website launches for tech groups large and small By Ryan Lessard

New Hampshire’s growing technologybased economy has marched forward with many parallel organizations designed to help that tech ecosystem thrive with advocacy, events and spaces for startups to incubate. Now, a new website,, combines all the local tech news, meetups, events and job listings in a single place. “We have a lot of great tech in New Hampshire. We have technologists, tech employers, tech events. However, we haven’t really had, as a statewide resource, one place to keep track of it all,” said Joshua Cyr, the founder of NH Tech Hub. Cyr is well-connected in the local tech scene. Currently, he’s the director of the startup accelerator program at Alpha Loft in Manchester. And Cyr says he is constantly getting phone calls from businesses looking for freelance or full-time employees, or from tech workers who are looking to move to the state and need a job. Even after he launched the site on Monday, July 24, he had three people reach out to him that very same day, not knowing the site existed, looking for skilled employees or a job. “That really helped solidify in my mind that there was a market need here in New Hampshire for that,” Cyr said. His site provides a listing of tech jobs from local employers, a resource directory of local businesses, local tech news he curates and links to primary source articles, events organized by groups like the NH High Tech Council or Live Free and Start, and smaller meetups for Wordpress or Salesforce professionals or indie video game developers.


Potential side effects

Scanlan said it’s too early to say how big an effect these new requirements will have on the workload of town clerks and other municipal officers tasked with enforcing them. He said it’s safe to say some additional resources will be needed. “But until we actually do it, we don’t know to what degree,” Scanlan said. In the worst-case scenario, communities could be saddled with long lists of names of same-day registrants and others who promised to bring in papers later, resulting in a mini-census effort to confirm people lived where they said they lived. Some smaller-scale elections will help to give them a sense of how easy or hard it will be. Manchester has a primary election for city positions on Sept. 19, during which there will also be a primary for the District 15 state

“There’s other websites and resources that do this in other parts of the country but not for New Hampshire,” Cyr said. Currently, the site has news articles about a Portsmouth retail store that will only accept cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. Upcoming events on the site include a Manchester recap of the Google I/O developers conference in San Francisco on Aug. 14 and a meet and greet organized by the local chapter of the International Game Developers Association in Manchester on Aug. 29. One of the most unique features is the job listings and freelance directory. Cyr, who previously worked as a tech freelancer, said a person can make a decent living bouncing from gig to gig, which can include things like sprucing up a company website or signing up for a six-month development contract. Freelancers can list their info on the site for free but employers pay a “moderate fee” for listing their openings. The for-profit site also makes money from ads. Cyr said it’s easy for people to get stuck in their own little bubble, but with a site like this, a software developer who is more familiar with the app scene in Manchester may stumble into the biotech scene in the Seacoast or vice versa. “Inherent in every network is sort of the limited bias of our own network,” Cyr said. “A project like this helps broaden that network and awareness.” Cyr isn’t ruling out organizing some events of his own down the road, but this is a side project for him. He said he still has a day job and not enough bandwidth to do that yet. “I’ve organized tech conferences on cruise ships in the past. I enjoy that sort of stuff,” Cyr said.

rep special election. And there’s also a special election for District 9 state rep. Scanlan said the secretary of state’s office is not tracking the additional hours spent enforcing the rules, but they will be listening to town officials and observing polling stations. Mike O’Brien with America Votes-New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Campaign for Voting Rights said the new rules could result in long lines at the polling stations, which could deter voters. He also said confusion around the bill and fear of a $5,000 fine if they don’t think they can return the papers in 10 or 30 days are likely to scare away voters. “We have confidence that our local election officials will do all they can to ensure a smooth process on election day but as the process becomes more complicated for voters it becomes more complicated for election workers as well,” O’Brien said in an email.

Helping at hospice

Area senior earns recognition for volunteer work Bill Bushnell, 87, of Concord received the Bankers Life Golden Beacon Award for his hospice and bereavement care volunteer work at the Concord Regional VNA with his therapy dog Lola. He also leads mindfulness meditation groups at Havenwood-Heritage Heights, where he resides. First of all, can you tell me a bit about your background? Where did you grow up? I grew up in a little city in central New York state, the name is Sherrill. … It is between Syracuse and Utica. From there I went to Colgate University and, from there, I entered banking at Oneida, New York. … In January of 1981, I moved to Manchester and went to work for the Amoskeag Savings Bank and worked there until I left in 1988. And [I] bounced around [between] some part-time jobs. My wife and I finally settled out on the Northwood side of Pleasant Lake … where we lived until she died and subsequently I moved to a retirement community — HavenwoodHeritage Heights, here in Concord.

Wildlife biologist Ted Walski tracks the turkey harvest each year. He said hunters brought in 4,482 turkeys this year, which comes in just under the record 4,550 harvested in 2013. The Wildlife Management Unit with the most turkeys counted (681) was located north of Route 4 to Lake Winnipesaukee, according to the story. There are 18 such Wildlife Management Units in the state. QOL Score: +1 Comment: The turkey population has been on the rise in New Hampshire, with an estimated 40,000 statewide.

Veterans cemetery up for discussion New Hampshire may get a new veterans cemetery, according to NHPR. Officials are considering a 20-acre federally owned plot of land in the town of Stark, formerly occupied by a prisoner of war camp from World War II, the state’s only prisoner of war camp. New Hampshire currently has only one veterans cemetery, in Boscawen.

Housecleaning a cluttered sports mind

Time for a little housecleaning for this cluttered sports mind. It’s incredible Bud Selig just got enshrined in the Hall of Fame after looking the other way for over a decade on steroid use because all the balls flying out were good for business. Then magically he transformed into an anti-steroid hawk only because Congress was lurking around on the issue with embarrassing public hearings. Meanwhile Bonds, Clemens, McGwire et al. are kept out. Booooooo! Speaking of being banished from the Hall. When a good friend of mine with health issues passed away a few years ago, another friend said, “I’m shocked but not surprised.” I’ll use that same phrase for allegations made by a woman in depositions for his defamation lawsuit against investigator John Dowd, who nailed him for his baseball gambling, that Pete Rose had sex with her at 14 or 15 in the 1970s. A tax cheat felon who gambled on baseball, now being accused of having sex with a minor. What a guy — definitely Hall material. You tell me what this incredible stat from the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin means. Only seven starters and 21 players overall remain from the 53 on the roster when the Patriots beat Seattle in the Super Bowl just two seasons ago. Usually when a Super Bowl team is turned over it’s because it was an aging team’s last hurrah or they got killed by defections from salary cap decisions. Not the case here. So does it mean having the league’s best quarterback is even more important than most think? Or that Coach B’s team-building is far better than it’s given credit for? Because after turning over 60 percent of a Super Bowl winning team and an astonishing 69 percent of starters in two seasons, he’s now got one favored to win the SB again, with

better odds to do it than the one he turned over. For the record I think it says he’s not only the NFL’s best coach, he’s its best GM as well. I can’t tell you how much I hate this baseball rule. Craig Kimbrel enters the ninth inning with the Sox leading Cleveland 9-8 and promptly gives up three hits and two runs to cough up the lead. In the bottom half Christian Vazquez hits a three-run walk-off homer to win, which makes the guy who blew the lead and nearly the game the winning pitcher. Since all the pitchers were ineffective I’m not sure who should get the win. But it certainly shouldn’t be someone who pitches horribly to cough up the lead in the ninth and is only still in to get the W because the Sox won it before they could get him out of the game. Speaking of Kimbrel: I know his numbers are incredible as he’s had a fantastic year. But in the biggest moments I still don’t trust him as I did Koji in 2013 or Yankee Nation did with Mariano Rivera. For those guys, it was game over when they came in. With Kimbrel, I have a rumbling in my gut in big moments, as I did right before Matt Holliday took him deep in the ninth at Fenway to blow that spectacular effort by Chris Sale vs. the Yanks in mid-July. Each time I see Rick Pitino get into trouble, as Louisville is once again, I can’t help thinking of the line he used to preach at his young Celtics players as if he were Moses talking to the flock: “If you tell the truth it becomes part of your past. If you tell a lie, it becomes part of your future.” Rick’s future now has probation in it. I’m shocked — shocked! Here’s one more reason I don’t think the media did much more than pile on David Price after his immature verbal assault on the more popular Dennis Eckersley. All I saw afterward was Price hasn’t been

half the pitcher Eck was. The only problem is it’s just not true. Most focus on the end of Eck’s career after he became a closer, which I’ll address in a minute. But all Price can be compared against in this argument is what each did to this point in a 10-year career. And guess what. Price’s (at least in the regular season) are better than the Eck’s first 10, when he was a starter. Wins: Price 126, Eck 134. Losses: Price 68, Eck 111. Winning percentage: Price .649, Eck .541. ERA: Price 3.24, Eck 3.65. 20-Win Seasons (harder to get today): Price 1, Eck 1. 200 Strikeout Seasons: Price 5, Eck 1, even 200, in 1976. Cy Young Awards: Price 1, Eck 0. I’m not trying to knock the Eck with any of this, but as for his later success as a closer. it’s overrated in a way. Not that he wasn’t great at it, but I suspect if you take almost any top-of-the-rotation starter like Price and make them a closer they’d thrive. As John Smoltz did when arm issues forced him to a reduced-innings role as Atlanta’s closer in ’02, ’03 and ’04 when he had 55 45, and 44 saves. And, what do you think Pedro would have done as a one-inning pitcher 70 times a year? “Yikes” comes to mind. Plus, all but Eck of the five relievers/closers in the Hall — Eck, Hoyt Wilhelm, Goose Gossage, Bruce Sutter and Rollie Fingers — were failed starters. Ditto for Rivera. And you can ask Daniel Bard how it works out going from closer to starter. The only one I can think of who did that well was Derek Lowe. Hard to believe, but this is the 50th anniversary of the Red Sox Impossible Dream Season of 1967. With five teams in it until the final week of the season it was the best pennant race of my lifetime and probably in baseball history. August and September were particularly drama-filled — which we’ll follow day by day next week. Email Dave Long at

Sadler defends NHWGA title The Big Story: Chelsea Sadler led wire to wire in winning her second straight New Hampshire Women’s Amateur Golf Championship as she shot 222 (76-75-71) over 54 holes at Eastman Golf Links in Grantham. It was an impressive 11-shot win over 16-time champion Dana Harrity (Abenaqui CC), who finished at 233 for the Nashua CC golfer. They were followed by Tara Watts (Derryfield CC) at 235 and Beth Hamilton (Canterbury Woods) at 239 respectively. Of other note, Lisa Cummings (Canterbury Woods CC) scored a hole-in-one on the 166yard par-3 third hole. Sports 101: Pete Rose became the alltime National League hit leader on Aug. 10, 1981.

He did pitch a no-hitter for Baltimore in 1958 and was 15-11 with a 2.19 ERA in 27 starts a year later. But it was back to the pen after that.

A look at the toppings and meats that make up this quintessential summer food Fun fact: According to a recent episode of Celebrity Family Feud, the majority of people surveyed think it takes just six bites to eat a 6-inch hot dog. Based on that totally unscientific theory, it would make sense, then, to make those bites count. We talked to local hot-dog-making pros about the best meats

and toppings, plus how to cook your dog and the bun to your satisfaction. If you’re looking for a heartier dish, we also found some unique sausages — think cheesy, spicy, and blueberry-filled — that you can get from farms and butchers. So whether you take six bites or 16, use this guide to find the flavors you crave.

What goes into making a great hot dog By Angie Sykeny

From dense and beefy hot dogs to juicy dogs with a snap, the classic food can vary widely in flavor and texture, based largely on what it’s made with and how it’s cooked.

The meat

Denis Huard, who worked for the former Schonland hot dog company in Manchester (now Kayem Foods, based in

HIPPO | AUGUST 10 - 16, 2017 | PAGE 12

Massachusetts) for 33 years and currently owns DH’s Doghouse in Manchester, says there are two main kinds of hot dogs: those made with a mix of pork and beef and those made with all beef. “To me, there is a huge difference,” he said “An all-beef frank is very dry and gritty because it’s nothing but straight beef and spices. But when you have the beef and the pork together, it makes it moist and juicy. … Personally, I’d take the beef and pork over the all-beef any day, but it’s all a matter of preference.”

The pork and beef hot dog has become the hot dog of choice for many ballparks, including Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester, home of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. “We use Kayem hot dogs to service the entire stadium. … “[They are] all natural, all beef and pork hot dogs, prepared on flat-top grills or a propane grill,” Kyle Lindquist, director of food and beverage, said. “The hot dog is the perfect baseball food. … Nothing beats a Kayem hot dog at a ball game.”

In addition to pork and beef and all-beef hot dogs, The Flying Butcher in Amherst offers a gourmet hot dog made with wagyu, a high-quality Japanese beef. It’s possible that people wouldn’t taste the difference between a pork and beef hot dog and an all-beef hot dog, Flying Butcher Manager Mike Ardagna said, but the difference between those and a hot dog made with wagyu is undeniable. “The wagyu definitely tastes much better,” he said. “In general, it has more flavor because it’s more fatty and the quality of

the meat is better overall.” Huard said that when he first started working with hot dogs years ago, hot dogs with beef, pork and veal were another popular option, but because the price of veal has gone up since then, it’s typically replaced with chicken. But there’s a downside to using chicken, he said. “While the chicken makes it a lot milder, when you have a hot dog with chicken, it turns green when you steam it, and it’s not appealing to the eye,” he said. There are also allchicken, all-turkey and vegan hot dogs made with non-meat products, but it’s arguable whether or not those are “true” hot dogs. “They’re supposed to be healthier for you, but all that makes them a hot dog is that they’re in a hot dog shape,” Huard said. “Personally, if I have a hot dog, I want a real hot dog, and that’s beef and pork.” The hot dog casing also contributes to the overall quality of the dog. A natural casing is the most common, in which the hot dog meat is stuffed into a tube made from the inner lining of cleaned-out sheep intestines. This is what gives many hot dogs that iconic snap when you bite into them. “The [all-beef] hot dog usually has a pretty thick casing and does have a big snap on it, but that can be undesirable for some people. Kids, especially, are not big fans,” Ardagna said. “The regular [pork and beef] hot dog has a casing, it’s not a thick casing or a thick snap, so that’s what we recommend for people getting hot dogs for a big party with kids and adults.” For those who want no snap (or don’t like the idea of eating sheep intestines),


there are skinless hot dogs, which are simply formed into a hot dog shape using a plastic mold, Huard said.

The cook

As far as cooking methods, there are two main ones: steaming and grilling. There isn’t much difference except that grilling gives the hot dog skin grill marks and the slightly more charred flavor that comes with that. You can’t go wrong with steaming, Huard said, unless you steam the hot dog for too long; then, the casing gets tougher and has less of a snap. Ultimately, it’s a DENIS HUARD matter of what the hot dog eater is used to and likes better. “In my business, 90 percent of people want a steamed dog, but it’s all about their personal preference,” Huard said. “If you grew up eating steamed dogs, you eat steamed dogs. If you grew up eating grilled, you eat grilled.”

“I couldn’t show up to work without my chili or I’d be in big trouble with all my regulars,” Peters said. Her chili doesn’t have any beans and it isn’t spicy, she said. And she uses a mild cheese sauce. Shawn Bouchard, the owner of Double GRETCHEN PETERS D Dogs in Wilton, said chili and cheese is his top seller and probably the most traditional arrangement for New England. “That is definitely the biggest seller. Then, I would have to probably say sauerkraut is also a very big seller,” Bouchard said. “Certainly, chili and cheese is a New England thing.” He uses all kinds of cheeses for toppings, such as Velveeta, Swiss, American and mozzarella. One particular hot dog on his menu is the Reuben Rottweiler, which includes sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and a line of Thousand Island dressing. Another popular topping Bouchard likes to add to hot dogs is bacon. A menu item called the Scooby Dog is made with a fresh strip of bacon, chili and cheese. “People love bacon on their hot dogs,” Bouchard said. For New England customers, Bouchard said, celery salt is also a popular seasoning. Occasionally, Peters has customers who ask for mayonnaise or coleslaw, but those items spoil easily in the heat so she doesn’t

New Hampshire hot dog stand owners rarely cite ketchup as their most popular topping. “A lot of people think it’s sacrilegious to put ketchup on a hot dog, but kids love it and I don’t judge. People should have whatever they want on a hot dog,” said Gretchen Peters, the owner of Puppy Love Hot Dogs in Concord. That’s not to say ketchup isn’t popular as a topping. It is, especially among younger generations, according to Peters. But at least at Puppy Love, Peters said, the most popular topping arrangement is a combination of mustard, relish and onions. In fact, that is what she finds most people mean when they ask for “the works.” Her second most popular topping combo is chili and cheese.

For the most part, her New Hampshire customers like to go easy on the toppings. “They like it straight up and … they want to taste the hot dog and not have it swimming in condiments,” Peters said.

“When you season a griddle, you tend to have more flavors in a griddle, … so when you grill a hot dog [bun] you tend to pick up more of those flavors,” Bouchard said. But ultimately, they agree, it’s a matter of personal preference. “I think it depends on what you grow up with too,” Peters said.

Peters and Bouchard represent the varying opinions about how best to prepare a bun. “I think, by far, steamed is best,” Peters said. “In my opinion grilled is better and I sell more grilled than I do steamed,” Bouchard said. Bouchard offers the choice, and the dogs themselves can be steamed or grilled. Generally the dog and bun are both prepared the same way, but Bouchard has a few rare customers who ask for a grilled dog in a steamed bun. The benefit of a steamed bun is the softness of the bread. But with softer bread comes less structural integrity. If the bread is toasted on a griddle, it gets hard and crunchy and can hold more toppings as a result, Bouchard said. There’s also a slight flavor that’s conveyed to the bread when it’s grilled.


A frank history of NH’s hot dogs By Matt Ingersoll

The hot dog originated in Frankfurt, Germany — hence the name frankfurter or “frank” — and even the origins of hot dogs in the Granite State can be traced directly

back to German practices. The former W.F. Schonland Co. in Manchester, known for its natural-casing franks, was at one time the largest hot dog seller in northern New England, according to Eugene Van Loan, whose great-greatgrandfather Carl Heinrich Schonland founded the factory in 1883. 16

it a special flavor. … “Ninety-nine percent of every other hot dog you would ever buy is what they call an artificial casing, meaning it is not created by forcing the meat into a sheep’s gut using the spout from a stuffing machine, but rather forced into some kind of semi-plastic.” Herb Langer, a longtime production manager for the Schonland Co., said it grew into more than just a meat-packing factory over the years, buying other local companies and manufacturing other meats like hams, chicken pies and pork pies, and other stuffed meats like bologna and liverEUGENE VAN LOAN wurst in addition to frankfurters. The Schonland Company was eventually sold to the Massachusetts-based Kayem Foods in 1987. But the Schonland brand is still found on Kayem’s natural-casing hot dogs, which are available at the deli counters of most area supermarkets.

15 “He was born in Germany and was a butcher and sausage-maker who came to the United States in the 1850s,” Van Loan, who worked for the company growing up, said. “He actually settled in Massachusetts and became a naturalized citizen there before coming up to Manchester.” The company had a few different homes in the Queen City before moving to its eventual longtime location on Blaine Street around the year 1920, Van Loan said. In the decades that followed, the W.F. Schonland Co. became a large commercial enterprise, selling and shipping its natural-casing hot dogs to supermarkets and small grocery stores all over the Granite State and beyond. “They used to hand-make everything just how they did in Germany, though eventually everything became semi-automated,” he said. “...The natural-casing frankfurt was [made of] sheep intestines.

When traditional just isn’t enough By Matt Ingersoll

Peacock Players take on Heathers By Kelly Sennott

This weekend, the Peacock Players presents the ’80s cult-classic Heathers, which is about suicide, murder, homophobia, cliques and bullying. But this one’s a musical, and it’s funny — really. The teen company brings it to the Janice B. Streeter Theater stage Aug. 11 through Aug. 20 with the help of ’80s garb, a rock ’n’ roll score and a directing team made up of Artistic Director Keith Weirich (directing), Henry Kopczynskie II (musically directing) and Valerie Psoines Nelson (choreographing). Heathers: The Musical follows brainy teen misfit Veronica Sawyer, who hustles her way into the most powerful clique at Westerberg High: the shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing Heathers, named as such for its other three members, who all happen to be named Heather. But Veronica disapproves of the girls’ cruel behavior and, with her new boyfriend J.D., decides to confront the clique’s leader, Heather Chandler — but when they accidentally poison her, they cover it up as suicide. The show’s based on the 1988 film star- GraceAnn Kontak (Heather Duke), Eliza Richards (Heather Chandler), Mary Sullivan (Heather McNamara), and Aly ring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater and Aramento (Veronica Sawyer) star in the New Hampshire debut of Heathers: The Musical. features book, music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy.

all these cliques are still rather prevalent.” Costumes are vibrant and reflective of the time period, with big hair and shoulder pads, each Heather sporting a different color. Sets are minimal, but what is onstage has a destroyed quality to echo the “damaged” theme of the story, with splintered platforms and cracks running throughout. Pretty much everyone came into rehearsals knowing music and lines, including Aly Aramento, who plays Veronica. She knew she wanted to audition as soon as the Peacock Players announced this season’s lineup. “For me, it’s hard to find shows where the lead doesn’t sing so musical theatery but more pop rock, which is more my style,” Aly Aramento said. To her surprise, auditions also attracted her mother, Lynda Aramento, who used to run youth theater and perform at the Palace Theatre. She landed the part of Veronica’s mother. “Initially, I thought [my mom] would not be super into it. But she listened to the album, came to me and said, ‘I love this, and I want to be part of this.’ At first I thought it was funny. My mom wants to do this show? That’s so weird,” Aly Aramento said. It’s their first time performing together, and so far, they’re enjoying it. Lynda Aramento said she’s very proud of her daughter and struck by how seriously the cast, ages 16 to adult, is taking the production. “I see her as a little more grown up than I did before due to the nature of the role. I appreciate the amount of work she’s put into it,” Lynda Aramento said. “For me, it was at first a little shocking — the content, and what she was going to have to do in the show, and honestly, there’s one scene that I just won’t even watch. … Other than that, I’m really comfortable with it. I have to remember it’s theater. I think it has a strong message that needs to be spoken about … and I hope it will spark some conversations.”

“EXPLOSIVE and THRILLING!“ - Bloomberg News

Friends Peggy Murray and Debra Woodward were sitting in a cafe last fall, talking art. Murray, a painter, was looking for her next source of inspiration. Woodward, a photographer, had booked a gallery for August but didn’t know yet what kind of show she wanted to feature. As they sipped their cappuccinos and looked around at the people in the cafe, they had an idea. “Peggy said she loved painting people in cafes, and I said I loved photographing people in cafes and that some of my best photos have been taken in cafes,” Woodward said. “That’s when we both looked at each other and said, ‘This could be a show.’” For the next eight months they visited cafes, painting and photographing the people and things they saw there. The result is “Cafe Life,” an art show housed at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery in Portsmouth, open now through Aug. 26. Around 28 pieces are featured, including color oil paintings and black and white photos depicting scenes from Seacoast cafes and cafes all over the U.S. and Europe. “There’s one where I was walking down the street in Paris at night and I saw a guy Cafe Life

at a cafe sitting all alone looking really dejected. I stood across the street and started shooting, and on the bottom right of the shot you can see a pair of feet leaving, so it looks like someone just left,” Woodward said. “I wanted to capture that moment and the feeling of how he felt.” Murray said she and Woodward wanted the contrast between the color in the paintings and the black and white of the photos to create an engaging and impactful collection. “It’s a nice experience for the viewer,” she said. “It allows the viewer’s eye to rest, like a palate-cleanser, by alternating the black and white with the colorful pieces of art. Each enhances the experience for the other.” The structural contrast generated by using two different media, Murray added, allows the viewer to experience the cafe scenes in different ways. “Deb captures the emotional quality and the inner life of people,” she said, “whereas I’m not so concerned about making [the painting] look exactly like [the people] or about showing their emotions. My point is about the figures and about showing how a figure fits within a space.” Even though Murray’s and Woodward’s art differs visually, the inspiration and drive behind it comes from the same place. As cafe-goers themselves, they make it a point to empathize with their subjects; they see themselves in their work, Woodward said, and they hope that others do as well. “What we’d like people to see is the universality of the whole thing,” she said. “It shows that people are the same all over the world. … Whether it’s to have some solitude and read a book, to go out with friends and talk and enjoy music, or even just to be in the company of other people and maybe meet new people, everyone loves going to cafes for the same reasons.”

Ideally credit card balances should be paid in full each month to avoid finance charges. If you do carry a balance, then owing about 30% of your credit limit (or less) will get the most points on your credit score. When used conservatively, people only charge on their credit card an amount they can pay so the balance isn't going up. Having a balance that exceeds the credit limit can cause a big dip in your score while paying down credit cards will improve your score.

Antique dealers locally and from across the country often save their hardest-to-find merchandise for the New Hampshire Antiques Show, which will be held for the 60th year from Thursday, Aug. 10, through Saturday, Aug. 12, at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester. Three-wall “rooms” will be set up to showcase the products of more than 65 antique dealers. A huge variety of antiques will be available, including folk art, hooked rugs, furniture, weathervanes, books and historical documents. “Dealers will save merchandise all year long and when they get something really good, they’ll put it aside and not show it to anyone until it comes out during the show,” said Tom Longacre, coowner of Thomas R. Longacre Antiques in Marlborough and show co-chairman. “The anticipation drives people crazy. … I don’t know of too many other shows that have that kind of energy.” Longacre said this show is also unique in that it is organized entirely by the dealers involved and by 60th annual NH Antiques Show When: Thursday, Aug. 10, and Friday, Aug. 11, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 12, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Where: Radisson Hotel, 700 Elm St., Manchester Cost: $15 on Thursday, $10 on Friday and Saturday; visitors under 30 receive free admission with ID.

members of the New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association. The doors to the show will open on Thursday, Aug. 10, at 10 a.m. But be forewarned; like a Black Friday sales rush, crowds tend to build up fast for the first few hours of the show, according to Longacre. “I’d say from about 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first day, it’s very busy,” he said. “But if you wait until later in the afternoon or even anytime during the other two days, you won’t get that mad rush.” Dealers travel from all over the country to attend the show, but several of them reside right here in the Granite State, including Mark & Marjorie Allen Antiques in Gilford, which specializes in paintings and needlework, Cail’s Country Cottage Antiques of Milford, which deals in country furniture and home garden accessories,

and Fry Fine Art in Peterborough, dealing in 19th-, 20th- and 21st-century watercolor paintings. There are three new dealers at this year’s show, according to Longacre. Pat and Rich Garthoeffner, from Lititz, Pennsylvania, specialize in a variety of 18th- and 19th-century antiques. Christopher & Bernadette Evans of Waynesboro, Virginia, will be presenting stoneware, redware, quilts and weathervanes. Adam Irish of the Portsmouthbased Old as Adam will also be at the show for the first time showcasing folk art, vintage men’s clothing and more. “We try to keep the transition occurring so that new dealers are coming and bringing in new ideas and concepts,” Longacre said. Some dealers have so much to offer that there isn’t room to have it all out on display in one day.

• DOVER MINI MAKER FAIRE This one-day festival invites inventors, entrepreneurs, tech enthusiasts, artisans and more to share their innovations with the public. Sat., Aug. 26, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, 6 Washington St., Dover. $8 in advance through July 31; $12 after July 31, and free for kids 5 and under. Visit or call 742-2002.

As a result, visitors might get to see different varieties of antiques from one day to the next during the show’s three days. “Some people do actually come all three days,” Longacre said. “A lot of the dealers … will strip their booths down and redesign them with a lot of fresh stuff, so if you come back a second or third day, you will see totally different stuff.” A full list of the dealers who will appear at this year’s show and what their specialities are is available at “[The New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association] is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting antiques year-round … and the show keeps the organization funded to support the industry,” Longacre said. “So we don’t have any kind of pro promoter. … The people that run the show are volunteers and work very hard to make it a success.”

My late older sister, Ruth Anne, used to say, “The weeds always win.” And she was largely right. We all get tired of weeding after a few months of it. By August, with its heat and bugs, we tend to back off, go to the lake, go on vacation, go watch a ballgame. Meanwhile, those sneaky weeds are producing seeds and dropping them into the soil. Don’t let them! My solution is to go outside early in the morning and pull a few weeds before it gets hot. I’ll set a goal — a 5-gallon pail of small weeds or perhaps a wheelbarrow of big weeds. Before I know it, a portion of the garden is looking spiffy. I recommend it. If you planted lettuce this spring, you probably have either eaten it all, or let it get tall and bitter. In that case, pull it out and plant some seeds. Seeds will germinate more quickly now than in the spring as the soil is warmer, encouraging seeds to get started. They’re not worried about snow or frost. Just a reminder: remember to snip off diseased leaves that appear on your tomatoes. Bring along a bucket to toss them in and put them in the household trash, not the compost pile. Do this regularly to help keep the plants healthy. Only work on the plants when the leaves are dry, to minimize chances of spreading the diseases. You probably have harvested your garlic by now, but if not, do it today! Depending on where you are, and how dry the soil is, many of your garlic leaves may have browned and dried up. Ideally, you have five leaves that are still green when you harvest your garlic. The leaves, which actually begin underground and coat the bulb of garlic, provide protection for the cloves. If too many have dried up by the time you harvest, the bulbs can easily fall apart, and will dry out in storage. I cut some of the scapes (flower stems) earlier this summer. Conventional wisdom says that this step, aside from providing garlic flavor to early summer dishes, gets the bulbs to grow bigger. I have never been able to verify that. But I paid attention while harvesting this year, and did see a slight advantage to those whose scapes were cut. But even more significant was bulb spacing. Garlic bulbs too close together were definitely smaller. I try to select my best garlic for planting next year’s crop in October, and have been selecting good ones for years, so I have pretty nice-sized bulbs. Garlic needs to be cured after harvesting. I’ve been told that the bulbs absorb vitamins and nutrients from the tops during the curing

process, which should last at least 10 days before you cut off those long green tops. Keep your garlic out of direct sun while curing it. I’ve seen nice wire racks that catch the bulbs and let the tops hang down, but I didn’t have any wire mesh the right size. So I put down a 2-by-4 stud on a cement floor under a covered porch, and laid the garlic tops over the wood. That allows better air circulation than just laying them on my shady deck. This is also a time for more thinning in the garden. I thinned carrots and beets in early July, but thinned again recently. I got some nice carrots that were crowding their buddies. The carrots left behind will get even bigger. My onions are not ready to harvest. How do you know when they are? The tops fall over. Simple as that. You can let them stay in the ground for a while, but I like to pull them and dry them in the sun. You can just leave them in the garden, or on the lawn, but I put mine on a sunny deck. Potatoes will soon be ready for digging. Watch for blossoms. Once they blossom, you’ll have some potatoes. Of course, the longer you wait to harvest, the bigger they will be. You can wait until the tops die back, but you can sneak out some new potatoes by slipping a hand into the soil and grabbing some little ones without disturbing the plant. August is generally hot and dry here, so I’ll be doing some watering. My celery root (celeriac) and onions are two crops that are particularly sensitive to lack of water. Celery, which I do not grow, is also very waterneedy. At planting time I don’t plant onions and celeriac in raised beds as those dry out more quickly than flat beds. Gravity works on water, too. My kale is big and lovely right now, so I will freeze some for winter. The plants, of course will be gorgeous right through frost and until nearly Christmas. But I like to get a head start putting up food now, before all the tomatoes are ready to harvest. So yes, I’ll take some lazy time to read a trashy detective novel by the water, but I’ll be out pulling weeds and tending the garden, too. Read Henry’s blog posts at gardeningguy.

Manchester Auto Glass

Dear Dee, What your dad has is an oak curio china cabinet. It was made between the late 1800s and the beginning of the Depression era. It has convex glass (meaning the curved glass). His china cabinet looks to be in the original finish, which is a plus. The condition of the glass is very important as well. As far as a replacement appraisal I would give it around $1,000. Now for the tough news: The market value would be much lower in this area because this generation does not decorate with china cabinets. This makes it a harder sell, if he was trying to do that. If it were me I would hold onto it and possibly pass it down. It is a great piece of furniture and is still after almost 100 years very usable. One last note: Be very careful with

You will have more say in the future in what goes on your dash Dear Car Talk: I have a new 2017 Honda Ridgeline. The speedometer is digital; it shows numbers only. It has no dial. However, it still has an analog tachometer. The transBy Ray Magliozzi mission is an automatic 6-speed. Why do you need a tachometer with an automatic transmission? In the old days, the tachometer was a necessity for manual transmissions; with today’s automatic computerized transmissions, it seems to be of little value. I would much rather have a speedometer dial instead of a tachometer. What do you think? — Bill There’s no real reason a car with an automatic transmission needs a tachometer. You can drive that car 200,000 miles and never need to know what the engine speed is. Even if you shift it manually, the computer will prevent you from doing anything stupid, like over-revving: It’ll just cut off the fuel supply or spark when you approach the red line. So why does it have a tach? Well, without it, there’d be a big hole in your dashboard. That wouldn’t look good. They could put a clock there, but there’s probably already a clock on the video screen.

I tend to agree with you. I prefer a speedometer dial to the digital readout. There’s hope for the future, however: More and more new cars are starting to come with customizable video displays instead of instrument clusters. So, instead of an analog speedometer, there’s a high-definition LCD screen, and the computer creates an image of a speedometer that looks and acts like an analog speedometer, with a moving dial. With these displays, you can customize what you see on the instrument panel in front of you: You can make the speedometer and tachometer smaller, and see a large navigation map in the middle; or you can see your entertainment system’s choices. You can’t see “Judge Judy” yet, but it’s probably coming. And there’s nothing stopping the manufacturers from letting you choose which instruments you want to see, so you could have a speedometer instead of a tachometer, and your neighbor, Fred, could monitor his oil temperature in 7-inch grandeur. You’ll be able to get that on your 2022 Ridgeline. Actually, I find that there is one unsung advantage of a tachometer these days. Some cars are so quiet now that it’s actually hard to tell if they’re running. And with push-button ignition, you no longer remove the key after shutting off the ignition. So I’ll admit to

glancing at the tachometer from time to time, to make sure I’ve turned off the engine. Dear Car Talk: Where is my oil? Our 2013 Equinox with 52,000 miles has disappearing oil. Between the last three scheduled oil changes, we lost more than 2 quarts. Last week I checked the dipstick, and nothing registered. I added a quart, and it came up to 3/16 of an inch on the stick. Now the oil-change readout says 29 percent left until oil change. I took it to the dealer, and they found nothing — nada. They saw no drips, no signs of oil running down the outside of the engine, and when the car is running, they saw no smoke coming out of the tailpipe, and no smells. They are stumped, and so is this chump. So, what are your thoughts? — Charles Well, unless some neighbor is sneaking into your driveway at night and siphoning out your oil, you’re burning it. If you lost about 2 1/2 quarts between each of your last three oil changes, that’s not good on a car with only 52,000 miles. But it’s not “start fracking in the backyard” level oil burning yet. If you’re a typical driver, you change your oil every 7,500 miles or so. Maybe more. So you’re burning the equivalent of a quart every 3,000 miles. Normally, people start

complaining to us when they’re burning a quart every 1,000 miles, or a quart every 500. My brother wouldn’t even buy a car unless it was burning at least a quart every 250. My more immediate concern for you is that you allowed the oil level to get more than a quart low before adding oil. So you need to be more vigilant, and check it more often. Letting the engine run low on oil will only harm the rings and increase your oil burning. Unfortunately, oil burning also tends to get worse over time. So your current rate doesn’t bode well for this car’s longevity without an engine rebuild at some point. So if you’re still under some sort of extended warranty, you want to be sure to have your dealer document the oil loss — even if they claim to be stumped by what’s causing it. They do that by sealing the system, so you can’t tamper with it, and then having you come back in at certain intervals to document the oil loss. That may give you a better case to make, should the oil consumption take a sudden turn for the voluminous in the near future. Alternatively, since the dealer didn’t see any blue smoke coming out of the tailpipe when you took the car in for service, you can assume they won’t see any if you go back next week to trade in the car.

FOOD May the best chili win

Fire on the Mountain Chili Fest returns to Henniker By Angie Sykeny

News from the local food scene

By Angie Sykeny

Chili makers can put their prized recipes to the test while foodies can enjoy the results of their culinary skills at the 15th annual Fire on the Mountain Chili Fest, happening Sunday, Aug. 20, at Pats Peak Ski Area in Henniker. More than 40 amateur and professional-level chefs from New Hampshire and beyond will take part in the chili competition and serve their chili to attending tasters. “People think of chili as a wintertime dish, but I think it’s one of those staple, go-to comfort foods that you can eat year-round,” said Ruth Zax of the Henniker Rotary Club, which hosts the event. “That’s why it’s one of those foods that you always see competitions for. People gravitate toward it.” The competition will have an amateur division, open to individuals, and a professional division, open to restaurants and catering companies, as well as a division just for rotary clubs. There are no regulations on chili ingredients and cooking methods; competitors have total creative freedom in developing their chili recipes, which usually results in a wide range of chilis for people to taste. Zax said past chilis have included green chili and chili verde, vegetarian chili, moose meat chili, chipotle chili, fish chili and even chocolate chili. Attendees can get up to two 1-ounce samples of chili from each chili maker and vote for their favorites. “There are so many varieties. Some peo-

ple get very creative with whatever their favorite recipe is,” Zax said. “Some are sweet, some are hot, some have lots of vegetables, and you can wander around and taste all these different ones and get a really different feeling from each one.” Prizes will be awarded to the first-, second- and thirdplace professional and amateur winners chosen by a panel of judges, and to the people’s choice professional and amateur winner determined by attendees’ votes. The top prize is $1000, which will be awarded to the first-place amateur winner chosen by the judges. There will also be awards for the chili makers with the best booth displays. This year’s chili judges will be Rick Broussard, editor of New Hampshire Magazine; Allen Zick, executive chef of The Common Man restaurant family’s special-

ty concepts; and Chef Nicole Barreira of T-Bones and Cactus Jack’s. Judges will score each chili based on its appearance, aroma, creativity with ingredients and presentation, texture, taste and blending of flavors, and aftertaste. Additionally, Pat’s Peak will offer beer and traditional festival foods such as ice cream and barbecue, and the New Hampshire Liquor Commission will be offering spirits samples. Other features will include a car cruise-in, a vendor midway with more than 20 local craft and specialty food vendors, live music RUTH ZAX by Dave Chiasson and The McMurphys and a kid zone with arts and crafts, face painting and games. “It’s a real festival,” Zax said. “Chili is the mainstay, but even if you don’t like chili, we try to provide something for everyone.”

Cannolis, tiramisu and biscotti are a few of the things you’ll find at Terrasini Pastry Shop, a new Italian bakery scheduled to open Friday, Aug. 11, inside the Steeplegate Mall in Concord. Owner Domenic Ciolino originally opened the bakery in Laconia, where it operated for two years, but decided earlier this year to relaunch in Concord with an expanded menu. “I noticed that there are restaurants with Italian bakery products, and there’s an Italian bakery that’s open seasonally, but there were no full-time bakeries doing specifically Italian bakery items in the state of New Hampshire,” he said. “I like baking and know all the Italian recipes from baking with my grandmother as a kid … so I thought, ‘What a perfect opportunity.’” The menu features Italian pastries such as Saint Joseph’s Day style zeppole (cream puff pastry with cream and cherry filling and powdered sugar on top), rum baba (bread-like pastry with cream filling and a cherry on top), lobster tail (flaky pastry with cream filling), Napoleon, cannoli and ricotta pie; and Italian cookies including cucidati (vanilla cookie filled with fig), vanilla cookies, Italian butter cookies, pignoli (pine nut cookie), gigilana (round biscotti covered in sesame seeds), and biscotti in almond, vanilla and chocolate espresso. “The cookies are all my grandmother’s recipes. They’re down-to-earth, homemade cookies, not like the fancy cookies you see Terrasini Pastry Shop Address: The Food Court at The Steeplegate Mall, 270 Loudon Road, Concord Hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Contact: 224-7007,

all wrapped up in the grocery store,” Ciolino said. “We don’t have a cookie press; we do everything by hand, so they’re not the prettiest, but they’re certainly delicious.” Traditional cakes like limoncello mascarpone and almond cream are available by the slice, as are whole cakes, custom cakes and wedding cakes. Italian bread and rolls from Sclafani’s Bakery, a Sicilian bakery in Gloucester, Mass., are also available. By next month, the bakery will also introduce a new menu of breakfast and lunch items not previously offered at the Laconia location. Items will include coffee, breakfast pastries and breakfast sandwiches; classic Italian sandwiches like sausagepepper-onion, eggplant Parmesan, chicken Parmesan and meatball sandwiches; Italian wedding soup and a rotating soup of the day and some salads. Even with the expanded cafe-like menu, Ciolino said the desserts and pastries will remain the bakery’s signature. “The sandwiches and other food items will just be extras,” he said. “New Hampshire needs a really good Italian pastry shop, and we’re going to keep ‘pastry shop’ [in the name] and keep that as our main focus.”

New Summer Menu!

Three Granite State breweries will join forces with the American Independence Museum in Exeter to showcase craft beer and history, with brews being poured alongside colonial-themed games, historical trivia competitions, museum tours and a tavern “escape room.” This is the second year the museum is hosting the Beer for History series in its own Folsom Tavern, with one event happening in August, one in September and one in October. During each event, one brewery will lead the festivities with themes related to their brews and to Revolutionary Warera history. The first event in the series, featuring Neighborhood Beer Co. in Exeter, is happening Thursday, Aug. 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. Additional events are Sept. 14, when the museum will host 7th Settlement Brewery in Dover, and Oct. 12, when Earth Eagle Brewings in Portsmouth will be featured. “We started with the idea that what we wanted to do was base classic German recipes for our beers … and put an Americanized twist on them,” said Salina McIntire, sales and marketing coordinator of Neighborhood Beer Co. “Some of them we don’t necessarily make year-round, but they are fun for these types of events, because we get to highlight a lot of history and culture.” Craft brews the Neighborhood Beer Co. will be pouring at the event include the Boss Flamingo, a German steam beer blended with malt and spicy yeast flavors, and the Obstinate Goat, an ale made with German landrace hops to give it a citrusy flavor. “[The Obstinate Goat] is an American blond ale-style beer,” said Rob Levey, director of advancement for the American Independence Museum. “It has some of the heavier qualities of a bock beer and the lighter qualities of blond beer. … German beers typically have high alcohol content but people are shocked because it tastes so light.”

When: Thursdays, Aug. 17, Sept. 14 and Oct. 12, 6 to 8 p.m. Where: Folsom Tavern, 164 Water St., Exeter Cost: $20 per person, or $55 for all three events in the series. American Independence Museum members receive a $5 discount per event. Visit: beer-for-history

Museum Executive Director Emma Bray said the breweries and the museum will also host games, trivia, museum tours and even an “escape room” inside the tavern, which will be the theme of the August event. “The tavern is going to be open for people to walk around through … and there are labels and interpretive panels to talk about the tavern’s history,” Bray said. “Children are welcome as well. There will be a children’s space in the tavern with food and games.” Levey, who came up with the series idea last year, said he wanted to create an event to connect the history of brewing beer with the history of the museum. “Breweries love history and honor their roots … and these events also allow us to honor the roots of our country as well,” he said. “The property [of the museum] is really important, not only to Exeter but to the history of the state as well, because it was actually the capital of New Hampshire during the Revolutionary War. … George Washington also had a beer in one of the rooms in the tavern before he was president, so folks will have the opportunity to see that room.” Multiple breweries attended the same events during last year’s Beer for History series. But this year’s events have been tweaked, Levey said, to give each visiting brewery its own platform to showcase its brews. “By narrowing the focus down to one brewery per festival, it gives the staff a chance to talk about what they brew and how they brew it, and a little more about the business as well,” he said. “It all connects back to the historical aspect of brewing beer.”

Ideas from off the shelf

Sloppy Joes When I first came across this recipe, I immediately thought, “Who would need a recipe for sloppy Joes?” Then I realized the only sloppy Joes I’ve ever made have come from a can. Now while that is the ultimate pantry-friendly recipe, this one is also relatively easy and convenient. It was heavy on pantry ingredients, and came together in about 20 minutes — the recipe for a perfect weeknight meal. There’s something about me that not many people can even begin to comprehend: I hate ketchup. I have a visceral reaction to the stuff. If I even get a whiff of it, I’m close to panicking. If I somehow get some on my plate or heaven forbid a french fry, I’ll have a meltdown. So, when I saw that this recipe called for one-half cup of ketchup, I nearly kept looking for a different dinner idea. But then I remembered I love sloppy Joes and needed to be an adult (in hindsight, two unrelated things), and decided to try my hand at this recipe. I substituted ground turkey for ground beef, but otherwise followed the recipe precisely — I wasn’t taking any chances with something that called for ketchup. One of my favorite things about sloppy Joes is the dynamic flavor. Every bite is a little sweet, a little sour and has a tang to it that you can’t quite identify. Having

grown up eating sloppy Joes made from a can, I wasn’t sure if I could expect the same flavors, but my first bite of this sandwich was delightful. The sloppy Joe packed all the familiar flavors, but elevated; I would argue that’s because the sauce hadn’t been sitting in a can for an unknown amount of time. Even my husband, who is not normally a fan of sloppy Joes, went back for seconds. The finished product just tasted fresher, but still had that sweet-sour-tangy flavor I associate with the sandwich. Served with a side of broccoli and french fries, this sandwich was surprisingly simple to make, which helped ease the stress of the normal dinner-bath-books-bedtime routine in my house. Plus, it didn’t require me to make a store run. With just a handful of ingredients, such as Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and apple cider vinegar, you can throw this together in a pinch. And, if you’re feeling extra ambitious, you could easily make a large batch and keep it warm in a slow cooker for your end-of-summer or back-to-school cookouts that are creeping ever closer. — Lauren Mifsud

Sloppy Joes Recipe adapted from Delish

Hamburger buns and red onion (optional) for serving

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 green bell pepper, chopped 1 onion, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon tomato paste 1 pound ground turkey (or beef) 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 1 cup tomato sauce ½ cup ketchup 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar Salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, heat oil and add onion and pepper. Sauté until tender, about 1 minute. Stir in the garlic and tomato paste, cooking until fragrant, about an additional minute. Add ground turkey or beef and cook through, about 5 or 6 minutes. Add Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar and cider vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste, reduce heat and let simmer until sauce is thickened, about 15 minutes.

I had started to ask Wade Ward, owner and brewer at Third Colony Brewery, some questions, but he wanted to talk about the logo. “Let’s start at the top,” he said. If I’m being honest, and I am, the logo was not exactly something I had planned on discussing. But that discussion was definitely worth it. Piece by piece, Ward broke down the logo, which depicts the colonial flag adorning the silhouette of an eagle. He started with the eagle, which represents Ward’s military lineage — he’s a disabled veteran and he traced his family’s military ties back to the Civil War, finding just four generations of his family without military service. In 2012, Ward’s son was injured in a roadside IED incident while serving overseas. The logo’s colonial flag is distressed, representing the scars and tribulations “we all carry,” Ward said. The image of the grain barrel “ties it all together,” symbolizing New Hampshire’s agricultural history. Finally, New Hampshire was the third colony to form. Clearly, Third Colony isn’t just about brewing. It’s a platform for Ward’s philosophy and that philosophy is about creating local relationships, just like in colonial times. (No disrespect to colonial brewers, but I think Ward might have a leg up on them.) For his Belgian Ale, his bestseller, he sources wildflower honey from Acadia Farms in Bedford. For his Cranberry Blonde, he sources cranberries from a fourth-generation, family-owned cranberry bog in Carver, Mass. “I’m building a brand that takes it all back to our artisanal roots,” Ward said. “Even the wood [for the bar] is sourced from local sawmills. … In the colonial days, everyone relied on each other and helped each other out.”

1292 Hooksett Rd, Hooksett 782-5137 •


Ward is serious about flavor. But he is approaching his beers a bit differently than the established craft beer norm. “I’m making full-flavored beers and I’m not masking those flavors with hops,” Ward said. “I want you to taste the flavors.” Hop enthusiasts can relax; Ward is hardly anti-hops. In fact, he loves hoppy beers. Ward says he isn’t cutting back on hops. In contrast, though, Ward says he is “pushing the malt forward,” which cuts back on the harsh bitterness. The end results are balanced, flavorful and consistent beers. “You’re not just drinking a glass of hops,” he said. While he personally loves IPAs, Ward said he wanted to offer a variety of beers, rath-

er than a handful of IPAs and a couple other styles. Brewing with a three-barrel system, his current tap list includes a Cranberry Blonde, Belgian Ale, Blueberry Blonde, Double IPA, Nut Brown, and a Maple Porter (brewed with locally sourced maple syrup — obviously). Ward suggests the “Nutty Maple,” a blackand-tan-esque mix of the Nut Brown and the Maple Porter. (That sounds like it would be pretty close to perfection on a cool fall afternoon.) Third Colony beers are available at about 25 establishments in New Hampshire. Mark your calendars: Ward plans to release a triple IPA and a “Scotch strong ale” during Derry After Dark ( Sept. 16. The cozy taproom, which features 12 barstools and a rustic, pine bar Ward made himself, has one rule: “You have to have a beer in your hand in order to take the tour,” Ward laughs.

I had seen this beer a few times and I was admittedly a little hesitant about the whole green tea in my beer thing, but I got over it. This is delicious. It pours hazy and has a unique fruitiness (could it be the green tea?) that is particularly pleasing. Enjoy!

An enterprising rawk trio from Portsmouth who are starting to rack up radio play and things like that. This is their official debut LP, a nine-songer that begins with “We Could Talk a Lot,” made of a half-plugged country-grunge guitar line that evokes a pretty drunk seacoast-abilly busking near one of those laughably expensive coffee joints, except better than that, a Mumfords undertone lending it an air of invincibility. Eventually, front guy Lucas Heyoka’s voice gets more and more bold, throwing in a Muse-style inflection to the ends of his lines that’s obvious but not hopelessly so. Things get better from there, if by “better” you mean “like Pavement, but with a Melvins guitar sound and a freestyle axe solo,” a bunch of ingredients I’d never advise mixing but which work, in an endlessly annoying way. “The Show” is a wounded, howling, emo-ish blues-metal train wreck, which is awesome of course — if this is a bunch of my old bandmates punking me I wouldn’t be surprised, but by the same token I’m sure a newer band could be this great by sounding this lousy.

Unless I’m reading the liner notes upside-down (or I’m being punked), I found out two things about this release. One, it’s released by New Hampshire-based darkwave/industrial label runner Otto Kinzel, and two, there’s a fictional backstory that comes from a cassette release that was “discovered” in the mid-’90s. Oh, and three, it doesn’t suck, even if I’d like to say it does, being as how the Dropbox package is a random mishmash of audio files and unidentified photos from the dude who discovered the cassette and freaked out listening to it while driving around, apparently because it’s possessed by a witch or whatnot, which, well, who knows. For me, deciphering this nonsense was like navigating the dark web trying to find Slenderman (or some credit card numbers, whichever might show up first) without a Tor browser — suffice to say you should listen at your own risk. OK, this review is already stupid, but never mind me — the upshot is that you’ll hear Sunn(((O))) bliss-noise in most of these songs, aside from the Borisish fractal departure in “Liturgy” and a guitar arpeggio in “Retreat to Light.” A- — Eric W.

• I’m not really sure what you’re supposed to be thinking these days with regard to snap-pop diva Kesha. She started her bubblegum-tramp nonsense as a more irritating version of Britney, but then, come to find out, she was getting totally rooked by her sleazy manager, and also she supposedly wrote her own songs (that’s the part nobody believes). But all that stuff happened before Trump, so it’s automatically been forgotten by everyone, and now all we really know is that she’s an annoying Britney person again. I guess? What’s this new album of hers, the one that’s coming out Aug. 11, titled Rainbow, what’s this about? Will it be annoying? Has she repented and decided to make music that isn’t for twerking grade-schoolers? What hellish nonsense will YouTube present to me, in the video for “Praying,” the new single? Here we are, OK this is weird, sort of like a sad Beyonce-meets-Pink ballad, some lyrical platitudes about rising up after whatever, some tribulations — wow, that was a high note she just sang. Eh, she’s trying to be Lorde or Adele. Who isn’t. • You probably became familiar with Providence, Rhode Island, punk rock band Downtown Boys after seeing the viral YouTube video of their tuba player quitting his stupid hotel job in grand fashion, with a full band performing all sorts of “hijinks” to make sure the guy never works again. That’s nice and all, but who are these guys again? They’ve only been making records since 2012, which is nice, and they have a girl singer, but they’re not X-Ray Spex, so why should I, a well-seasoned critic who’s won awards, care? But I listened to the second single from their upcoming new Cost Of Living album, “Lips That Bite,” and it’s quite decent and actually does sound a lot like 1980s punk. Ha ha, there’s even a messy honking saxophone. They rule. • Huh. I didn’t do this on purpose, but David Rawlings is also from Rhode Island. Unlike Downtown Boys, though, he’s a bluegrass singer, hawking his third solo record, Poor David’s Almanack, due out Aug. 11. The single, “The Weekend,” features Rawlings and his constant collaborator, Gillian Welch, dabbling in sleepy Conor Oberst-style mid-tempo soft-rock. Nothing special, might have been big during the ’70s, if that tickles your fancy. • Frankie Rose’s fourth LP, Cage Tropical, is on its way. She was in a few bands before, such as Dum Dum Girls and Crystal Stilts. The leadoff single “Trouble” exhibits all the traits that made this girl a Pitchfork favorite, not that that’s bad in this case. Weird fractals, Postal Service synth-cheese, floaty geek-girl vocals — I can deal with it, sure. — Eric W. Saeger

Rail trail expert

Martin on new edition of New Hampshire Rail Trails By Kelly Sennott

Charles F. Martin knows more about New Hampshire rail trails than anyone else in the state, thanks to the research required to write his 2008 book, New Hampshire Rail Trails. For years, it was the source for Granite State rail trails, detailing how to access them, what they look like and their past lives as railroads. But it wasn’t long before the trails changed, extending farther and seeing surface improvements with crushed gravel or pavement. Martin, who lived in New London for years, tried to keep up. He published an eBook with new information, but readers disliked that you still needed the first edition. So he bit the bullet and wrote New Hampshire Rail Trails, 2nd Edition, published by Branch Line Press last fall, an updated look at the state’s large network complete with 133 maps and more than 180 photos. Research involved re-visiting all the trails on his bike and checking in with rail trail organizations and historical societies. “Probably the biggest thing is there’s been a movement to connect town trails into regional trails,” Martin said via phone. “The regional trail that’s the most important is called the Granite State Rail Trail, which will go from Lebanon all the way down to the Mass. border in Salem, and a little bit further on.” Martin and his wife have since moved to Colorado to be close to their children, but they’re back in the Granite State this fall. While here, Martin plans on conducting some long overdue promotion work for the latest title, which includes at stop at MainStreet BookEnds in Warner Saturday, Aug. 12, at 1 p.m., with fellow rail trail aficionado Tim Blagden. As an avid biker and history- and naturelover, it’s natural that Martin loves rail trails so much and wanted to be part of their development. Years ago, he joined the Friends of the Northern Rail Trail, which overlooks the line traveling from Boscawen to Lebanon. Then he began exploring others. “I thought I could have a lot more impact statewide than I could on just this one trail, so I started doing research for the first edition of the book. Of course, like any other book, it took a lot more effort than I ever thought it would, but it also got me in contact with the other trail groups,” he said. “With-

out sounding brash, I’d say it’s the source for New Hampshire rail trails. Of course, that’s a very limited field; nobody else has put in the kind of effort that I have to survey the entire state.” Some of the trails that needed updates in this new edition include those in Keene, where there are now two major bridges connecting trails; those in Goffstown, which now connect with Manchester’s trails thanks to the new bridge crossing the Piscataquog River; and those in Laconia, which lengthened to twice their size. He also mentioned trails in the southern tier of the Granite State Rail Trail (Windham, Derry, Salem, Londonderry) and the one close to his old home. “When the first edition of the book came out, the Northern Rail Trail in Merrimack County only had a few miles. Now, when you take [the trails within] Merrimack County and Grafton County, [the Northern Rail Trail] stretches 58 miles,” Martin said. The book also goes in depth looking at historical trail artifacts, from tumbling-down factories to tell-tales, some of which still exist in New Hampshire. Tell-tales, which look like dangling metal rods hanging from telephone poles, trace back to when trains needed workers to manually set each car’s braking system, forcing men to hop from car to car. The noise of the train hitting the tell-tales would alert that a bridge or obstacle was approaching, and that workers should move out of the way. Martin said he hopes the book gets more people on the trails, or at the very least, lets people know they exist. “Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts have some excellent rail trails, but I think one of the things about New Hampshire that’s unique is just the density. Wherever you live in New Hampshire, there’s going to be a rail trail fairly close to you,” Martin said. “They’re kind of like linear parks. They’re not doing people any good if they don’t know about them and use them. I’m not the only one pushing people to use these trails.”

Daycare & Boarding


You’ve got brilliant scientists. You’ve got genetic engineering. You’ve got the real-life version of Jurassic Park, only with creatures more majestic than terrifying. Throw in the fact that a movie is already in the works, and that the author wrote the book that became The Social Network, the 2010 movie about the founding of Facebook that won three Academy Awards. So how do you make Ben Mezrich’s Woolly something bordering on boring? First, by making the woolly mammoth a supporting actor, not the star. Woolly is not so much a book about the quest to bring back the woolly mammoth, the hairy behemoth that has been extinct for 10,000 years, as it is a love letter to Dr. George Church, the renowned Harvard geneticist at the forefront of the effort. Mezrich opens every new section from the book with not one but two or three quotations from Church, which seems bizarrely sycophantic and also makes you wonder why he chose these particular quotes. Church, a founder of the Human Genome Project, may be the smartest man strolling the streets of Cambridge, but you wouldn’t know it from some of these lines, such as, “You can’t just hoard your ideas inside the ivory tower. You have to get them out into the world.” My theory is that Mezrich wanted to write a biography of Church, but an editor said it would never sell unless he threw a six-ton muppet into the mix. So instead of Church: The True Story of the Genius Who is Going to Revive One of History’s Most Iconic Extinct Creatures, we got Woolly. Church does deserve a biography, and will get it one of these days. The second problem with Woolly is that Mezrich makes the reader work so hard to get at the story. Those of us who are eager to know the story promised in the subtitle would like to read that fascinating tale in a linear fashion, point A to point Z. Instead, Mezrich employs a narrative style that doubtless helped him sell the movie rights but does nothing to help the reader. It’s the literary equivalent of cracking pistachios: so much work for the meat. We must endure quasi-fictional asides, such as an opening in which an imagined woolly mammoth calf faces a row of men holding spears, and an entire chapter about the grad student the lab hired to bring freshly delivered elephant placenta to Harvard. This is not to say that the reason the scientists needed elephant placenta isn’t interesting, but we don’t need to know that

the guy who delivered it used to drive an ice-cream truck and that he hopefully buys drinks for flight attendants at airport bars. The effort to bring woolly mammoths back — or, more correctly, as Mezrich notes, the effort to create woolly mammoths, because scientists are no longer reading DNA but writing it — is riveting stuff. It is cutting-edge science with life-altering implications and ethical conundrums. The science involved is far more important to our lives than most of what passes for news on the nightly cable shows. Which is why it seems diminished by this particular manner of presentation, with made-up dialogue and a tone that borders on deferential, not only to Church, the god-hero, but also to woolly mammoths, which are capitalized throughout like some tusked deity. Only occasionally does Mezrich hint, through the questions of the “revivalists” (a term ironically pregnant with religious meaning), that perhaps it’s worth spending a little more time and ink pondering who is really served if de-extinction becomes real. The cover art, which shows the shadow of a woolly mammoth with a city skyline in the background, is cool but deceptive. Humans have yet to learn to live with deer peaceably; it’s hard to imagine mammoths politely keeping to the outskirts of Concord or Manchester. The good things: Mezrich does a decent job at explaining the complex machinations of what’s come to be known as “de-extinction,” the process by which scientists hope to fuse ancient and modern DNA, using a single, intact nucleus recovered from a mammoth entombed in ice, CRISPR gene-editing technology and elephant cells provided by Ringling Brothers. The tale contains many interesting asides, including the story of a Russian scientist who believes he can head off catastrophic global warming by re-introducing herds of animals to the Siberian tundra. (That is surely the holy grail of grant proposals: Please fund this research because woolly mammoths in a petri dish will stave off human extinction.) But recent news that scientists have edited the DNA of embryos to successfully erase a type of heart defect makes creating a woolly mammoth seem more like a sideshow or a cool science-fair project, like a bakingsoda volcano. Science is moving faster than the capacity of the average person to understand it. Books like this are needed to help us make sense of a world soon to be populated with woolly mammoths and designer babies. It’s disappointing (tusk, tusk) that this one wasn’t more engaging; let’s hope the movie is better, and that it arrives before the first woolly mammoth does. C — Jennifer Graham

Detroit (R)

A group of young adults, most of whom are African Americans, are held hostage by city police at a motel in Detroit, an imperfect but interesting look at a true story from the 1967 Detroit riots.

A mass arrest at an illegal bar, witnessed by a crowd fed up with the aggressive tactics of the police, leads to riots, arson and looting in Detroit in July 1967. We see footage explaining that state police and National Guard are sent in and we see police arresting people by the dozens and some beating people on the street. We meet the men whose lives will collide at the Algiers Motel on the night of July 25, 1967, the third day of the riots. Melvin Dismukes (John Boyega) is a security guard called in to protect a grocery store. We see him bring coffee to the National Guard soldiers who show up across the street and, earlier, get a kid on the street out of trouble with a police officer by pretending the kid is his nephew. He seems to have a genuine desire to protect people and knows that often means finding a way to keep a situation with tightly wound white police officers from escalating. White police officers such as Philip Krauss (Will Poulter). Early in the movie, we see Krauss remorselessly shoot a man he thinks is looting in the back. Later, when the National Guard hears what they think is sniper fire, Krauss, along with officers Demens (Jack Reynor) and Flynn (Ben O’Toole), heads over to the Algiers, where they think the shots have come from. The pistol fired in their direction is actually a starter gun — all noise, no bullets. Larry Reed (Algee Smith) and Fred Temple (Jacob Latimore) have the bad luck of being at the hotel. Larry is the lead singer in the band The Dramatics, which Fred manages. The group was about to go on stage when the show was shut down due to riots. The group left the theater and Larry and Fred, separated from the others, sought shelter at the Algiers motel. There, they briefly hung out with Carl Cooper (Jason Mitchell), the man with the starter pistol, and Julie (Hannah Murray) and Karen (Kaitlyn Dever), two young white women staying at the hotel. (Note: I wasn’t entirely certain how old everybody in the movie was supposed to be but the Wikipedia page on the real-life event says that many of the people staying at this building of the motel were in their late teens. Also, for those curious about fact-checking, text at the end of the movie suggests that while this is based on a true story, not every element is lifted directly from some triple-sourced definitive report; Slate, among others, recently had a piece explaining some of the “fact versus fiction versus nobody really knows” elements.) City and state police, National Guard and, for some reason, Dismukes storm the annex

HIPPO | AUGUST 10 - 16, 2017 | PAGE 50


building of the motel searching for a shooter, an action that leads to one initial death and two more deaths of patrons as the night wears on. Somehow Krauss, who even other police officers seem to consider a loose cannon and a racist, winds up in charge of the situation, rounding up all the people staying in the building, including Greene (Anthony Mackie), a soldier recently returned from Vietnam. When an initial search for the gun turns up nothing, Krauss begins physically and psychologically torturing the motel guests. He takes some men individually into rooms and threatens to kill them, firing a shot to make the group outside think the man is dead. Some get beatings. The women are berated for associating with black men and are also physically assaulted. Dismukes seems to try to be a calming presence. He pulls one young man aside when it appears that Krauss might be about to kill him and tells the man he just wants him to survive the night. Both Dismukes and a National Guardsman named Roberts (Austin Hebert) are increasingly horrified by what they see Krauss do but seem unable to intervene directly. Dismukes, an armed African-American, is also potentially at risk from a trigger-happy police officer (at least, I think this is what the movie’s position on Dismukes is). Roberts and officers from other agencies fear getting tangled up in a bad situation that is not strictly their jurisdiction. The result is that as the situation gets more dangerous and out of control, no one is able or willing to stop Krauss. Detroit starts strong, setting its scene of a city in turmoil and a community that has literally been occupied by an army. The blend of movie and archival footage and photos helps to put you there, in the moment. We understand, when events at the Algiers begin, what the environment is and why that is important to how everybody reacts. But about halfway through the night at the motel, as you’d expect the movie to get tighter and more zoomed in on the specific incident and characters, it starts to lose its focus. It feels like it takes step back from the action, as if it is watching it from behind a glass. This would actually fit if we were

watching events unfold from the perspective of Dismukes, horrified but prevented from acting, but the story doesn’t actually track this way. The movie goes omniscient (or maybe just scattered) just as a personal viewpoint would have made for a stronger story. Detroit has some strong performances: Boyega, Mackie and Smith stand out as actors who had the right mix of skill and opportunity to give their characters a little depth. But about some characters we get very little information, including Aubrey Pollard (Nathan Davis Jr.), one of the young men at the motel who doesn’t survive the night. And in the movie’s final chunk, the aftermath of the Algiers is depicted in very broad strokes. This is one case where the movie and its flaws feel secondary to the examination of the incident it portrays. The issues this movie examines are far more complex and important than the movie itself (probably, in fairness, than most movies have the ability to be): What has changed and what hasn’t when it comes to racism in American — in housing, law enforcement and the justice system. On this score (basically, presenting these issues) the movie succeeds. For what it discusses more than how it approaches it, Detroit is worth a watch. B Rated R for strong violence and pervasive language. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow with a screenplay by Mark Boal, Detroit is two hours and 23 minutes long and is distributed by Annapurna Pictures.

The Dark Tower (PG-13)

Idris Elba is a delightfully grizzled gunslinger in the otherwise lackluster The Dark Tower, a movie that, like a losing pastry on The Great British Baking Show, feels half-raw, lacking in flavor and, hmm, how do I work in a “soggy bottom” joke?

Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) wakes up scared by his terrible dreams: of a strange desert world, of a Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey, hamming it up with a bit of Al Pacino-ish glee), of a gunslinger named Roland (Elba), of imprisoned children who are tortured in an attempt to use their power to knock down

a tower, of clouds of fire over New York City. Just nightmares? That’s what his mom (Katheryn Winnick) and others in his life think, but real-world earthquakes seem to follow some of these odd dreams. And, when his stepfather (Nicholas Pauling) tries to send him to a clinic to deal with his emotional issues, Jake runs away, identifying the counselors who come to get him as the strange, ill-fitting-skin-wearing people he’s seen in his sleep. He runs to an abandoned house, also something he’s seen in his dreams. The house turns out to be a sort of transportation hub, helping him open a portal to the Old-West-ish world from his dreams. After arriving, he finds the gunslinger. Ultimately, Jake wants the gunslinger to help him stop the destruction of the tower, which, as we’re told, protects various worlds (Earth, the desert world, others) from the darkness and dangers lurking outside some kind of protective invisible fence. The gunslinger wants to use Jake’s psychic powers to find the Man in Black and kill him — revenge for the gunslinger’s killing Roland’s father. I never read the Stephen King books on which this is based but I can see that there is an interesting story here: the devil dressed as Johnny Cash, alternate worlds, a gunslinger who looks hot in a long leather coat. Mostly that last one; the awesomeness of Idris Elba comes through even in this weak stew of fantasy bits and legend-y offal. Wow, I thought while he was mid-fight scene, he really would be a good Bond. Or Bourne. He has the gravitas to fill in implied backstory and add emotional heft even to a movie that doesn’t give him much. Elba is highly watchable, even when he’s in the middle of a lazily staged fight or spouting some very iffy dialogue. The rest of the movie, not really. Look, I am as happy as anyone that this movie is only 95 minutes. An extra 30 minutes has never turned a terrible movie great. But this movie needed more detail and texture to its world-building — the worn-out world of the gunslinger, the whole concept of multiple worlds, whatever the heck this tower is. Instead of creating a new universe, this movie felt like it was serving up reheated chunks of The Lord of the Rings, lumps of The NeverEnding Story and plops of Cowboys & Aliens (or is it more John Carter?). The Dark Tower is hardly the floppiest flop of this summer’s movies — in fact, it doesn’t really feel like much of a movie at all. It feels more like a rough outline of a movie, with all the details and elements that make you care about the characters and their journey yet to be filled in. CRated PG-13 for thematic material including sequences of gun violence and action. Directed by Nikolaj Arcel with a screenplay by Akiva Goldsman & Jeff Pinkner and Anders Thomas Jensen & Nikolaj Arcel (based on the novels by Stephen King), The Dark Tower is a brisk hour and 35 minutes long and is distributed by Columbia Pictures.

Lang hits White Mountain Festival with new LP By Michael Witthaus

Bursting onto the scene with 1997’s Lie to Me, Jonny Lang was hailed as a teenage guitar prodigy and keeper of the blues flame. Lang didn’t follow a purist’s path, though; he rocked, rumbled and reflected musically into his 30s. He even made a Christian album after wrestling with personal demons and finding faith in the early 2000s. Lang’s latest, Signs, should please fans of Lang’s earliest work. Due for September release, it’s a return to the spirit that had critics calling him the next Stevie Ray Vaughan. The new music will also fit nicely at the White Mountain Boogie ‘N Blues Festival, which Lang headlines on Aug. 19. “I did have a bit of a desire to try and tip the hat to some of the older blues guys,” Lang said in a recent phone interview. “I’d been listening to a lot of Howlin’ Wolf around that time, and I just felt it was right to do a record with raw guitars and more rough-sounding production.” Thematically, Lang explores the topical on the title cut, written in the wake of a few tumultuous events a couple of years ago. “There’s been a crazy ambush of really dark stuff in the world … seeing it on the news,” he said. “It couldn’t help but be a part of the songs that I was writing.” “Bitter End” bemoans mankind making the same mistakes over and over, but Lang cautions that he’s not giving answers, just stating a problem. “I’ve only been on this Earth for 36 years,’” he said. “History ebbs and flows, nations rise and fall. I don’t really know White Mountain Boogie ‘N Blues Festival When: Friday, Aug. 18, through Sunday, Aug. 20 (Jonny Lang plays Saturday) Where: Benton’s Sugar Shack, 2010 Route 175, Thornton Tickets: $40-$100 at

what it would take to turn some of our issues around, but all we can do it just talk about it and how I feel about it in song and hopefully it will relate to people.” Signs is still a moving target, including elements of funk and singer-songwriter reflection, the latter on “Bring Me Back Home,” a road-weary ballad. Now the father of five, Lang says touring “is the trickiest thing I have to do [and] there’s no balancing it, really. ... I try to make the best out of each day, because there is just no getting around that I have to leave.” “Last Man Standing” is an outsized arena rocker co-written with producer Drew Ramsey. “Right when he started playing, it sounded like Foo Fighters to me ... the melody and riff — and I love Foo Fighters,” Lang said in a preview video for the new record. “We finished it together and it was just very cool; I had never done anything like that before,” he said. Along with shows to promote his new release, Lang continues to appear as part of Experience Hendrix, a tribute to the late

guitarist. “I thought when they asked me, man, all of these guitar players in one venue cannot be a good idea — competing egos and stuff — but I was totally wrong,” he said. “It’s been so much fun to get to know some of the guys, to hang out and see these great guitar players do what they do, and an honor to be asked to be a part of it by the Hendrix family.” Lang said he was “already way in with Jimi” when asked to participate, “but I did learn quite a bit more about him and my understanding of his music, which is profound. Everything he has done was recording in like three years; he’s got more recorded catalog than a lot of lifetime artists. It’s just amazing. He’s just an anomaly, in a good way, a force of nature.” Playing events like White Mountain Boogie ‘N Blues Fest provides a welcome return, Lang said. “Blues guitar players are my biggest influence ... so I love festivals like that, where people are there specifically to see that genre of music,” he said.

Having headlined in comedy clubs, theaters, and showcases across the country, and with weekly spots in New York City and Long Island; Tim Krompier has blossomed into a stand-up comedy maven. His mom always thinks he is blossoming into something. Tim’s journey to two-drink minimum glory and sold-out shows is an unlikely one, having only been ten short years since he made his income as a break-dancer, professional party emcee, and entertainment industry lothario. He performs Friday, Aug. 11, 8 p.m. at Rochester Opera House, 31 Wakefield St., Rochester. Tickets $20 and up. Call 335-1992.

The American worker

Saturday, August 12

A local chapter of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees in Battle Creek, Michigan, is butting heads with Western Michigan University this summer after the school brought in a goat crew to clean up an overgrown woodlot on campus, leaving union workers without jobs. The AFSCME’s grievance cites a collective bargaining agreement with WMU, but university officials counter that “the area is rife with poison ivy and other invasive species,” which are difficult for humans to remove. The 20-goat crew, rented from Munchers on Hooves in Coldwater, Michigan, is ahead of schedule in clearing a 15-acre area.

With friends like these ...

Robert Kanoff, 49, celebrated Independence Day in an unusual way: High on drugs, he was dropped off in his birthday suit at a Tempe, Arizona, Walmart by two people who thought it would be “funny to see him naked,” said police. There he walked around the store wearing only shoes and carrying methamphetamines. Maricopa County sheriff’s officers caught up with him around 10 p.m. across the street from the store.

The entrepreneurial spirit

First bikes, then cars ... now umbrellas. Maybe. Sharing E Umbrella hit the streets of 11 Chinese cities in April with more than 300,000 umbrellas for rent from subway and bus stations. Unfortunately, the company’s founder, Zhao Shuping, didn’t provide instructions about returning the rentals after use, and most of the umbrellas have disappeared. Zhao noted his mistake, saying, “Umbrellas are different from bicycles. ... With an umbrella you need railings or a fence to hang it on.” He plans to replenish his stock with 30 million umbrellas nationwide by the end of the year.

• The Do Son Buffalo Fighting Festival, in which water buffalo are pitted against each other, has been a tradition in Hai Phong, Vietnam, since the 18th century. But on July 1, buffalo trainer Dinh Xuan Huong, 46, met his doom when his own bull turned on him. The buffalo first knocked Dinh to the ground, then flipped him over its head, goring Dinh’s leg with its horn. Dinh later died at the Vietnam-Czech Friendship Hospital. Buffalo fighting was stopped in the country during the Vietnam War, but the fights resumed in 1990. Police in Slidell, Louisiana, stopped a “car full of drunks” on July 8 and arrested the driver for driving while intoxicated. The car’s passengers rode home in a taxi, but one of the women then drove back

to the police station to bail out the driver. Slidell officers arrested the woman for DWI, and she joined her friend in jail. “Lesson of the day,” Slidell officers posted on their Facebook page: “Don’t drive drunk to a police station in order to bail out your drunk friend!” • Police in Swansea, Illinois, suspect the heir to a brewery fortune of flying high. August Adolphus Busch IV, 53, landed his helicopter around noon on July 10 in an office complex parking lot outside St. Louis. Police and FAA investigators were still trying to determine why he had landed there and whether any aviation laws had been broken when they were called back to the parking lot around 8 p.m., where Busch, appearing to be intoxicated, was trying unsuccessfully to take off. Swansea police reported that Busch failed field sobriety tests but passed a breath test, and after they secured a warrant, Busch was taken to a local hospital for blood tests. (Also found in the helicopter: four loaded guns, several prescription pill bottles and eight dogs.) At press time, no charges had been filed.

Lacking a filter

Baseball fans at the Los Angeles Dodgers-Kansas City Royals game in Dodger Stadium on July 8 were treated to some righteous moves on the dance cam by “Rally Granny,” an older fan who capped her performance by flashing her bra at the 40,000-plus spectators. “You don’t see THAT much at a baseball stadium,” deadpanned Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger (who actually missed the spectacle).

Now you have our attention

• On July 6, IRS workers in Ogden, Utah, received a fake bomb from Normand Lariviere, 68, of Olympia, Washington. The U.S. Navy veteran and former civilian defense contractor has been disgruntled with the Department of Defense since his dismissal in the 1990s and has a history of mailing disturbing objects to the IRS to protest paying taxes. In 2016, Lariviere sent one of his fingers, a bullet and a marijuana joint to tax collectors. “Many things I could do,” he threatened. “I’m not going to tip my hand.” • Drivers speeding down Bedford Street in Lakeville, Massachusetts, may touch the brakes when they spot a parked police cruiser at the side of the road. But the “vehicle,” a plywood and aluminum sign painted to look like a Crown Victoria black-and-white, is a ruse perpetrated by resident Kelly Tufts to get drivers to slow down. Tufts parks the “car” in his driveway, especially on weekends, to protect dogs and kids from speeding traffic. “We’ve had some people give us the one finger,” Tufts said. “If it was their neighborhood, they’d enjoy it.”


A mathematician in Bucharest, Romania, scored a 44,900 euro profit when he made an exciting discovery at a flea market there: a rare World War II Enigma machine, used by the Nazis for encrypting messages. After paying the unwitting seller just 100 euros ($114 U.S.) for it, he took it into his care, cleaning and repairing it and learning how it worked. On July 11, a Bucharest auction house sold the machine for 45,000 euros ($51,500 U.S.) to an unnamed bidder. Visit
