You know the old saying, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, wait a minute”? After watching the news over the past few weeks, I feel like the same could be said for human behavior. One week we are literally running over each other with cars, spraying pepper spray and threatening violence against one another. The next, we are loading up our vehicles, collecting donations and traversing dangerous conditions to save relative strangers from rising flood waters, the latter actions being the cornerstone of our country and how we can truly remain united in the face of tragedy. I would like to think that we could be helpers, not harmers, but our nation for a long time has both caused and endured a lot of pain. We pigeonhole, stereotype, and listen to our leaders who practice scapegoating instead of responsibility. The ease of placing blame for that pain on others, whether that be immigrants, conservatives, transgender people or Christians, seems to come easier than proposing solutions that would benefit us all. We have found ourselves in a bit of a tug of war with each other where it can seem like one part of our population is trying to pull the rights from the other. If one group is finding progress then the other is left feeling like their rights are being stripped away. The tension builds up and then the momentum shifts back the other way. The truth is, under this model, no one wins. It divides us and tears at the fabric of freedom that the notion of democracy was built upon. We have little control over tragic natural disasters. We do, however, have an opportunity to look beyond the labels and recognize the unnecessary pain that we inflict on one another, pain that could be mitigated if we are willing to compromise and work across all facets of our society. All of us, in our lives, will witness the good and bad parts of humanity. We can choose the path of oppression or the path of opportunity. We know that we are capable of putting aside religion, race, gender and other identities to work together to bring safety and solace to our fellow man. Let’s work together in the same ways we do when Mother Nature’s wrath displaces our neighbors — together we can be the light in the darkness for all instead of trying to extinguish those who make us feel threatened.

State regulators decided to postpone the final decision on the Northern Pass project by five months, the Concord Monitor reported. Officials also extended public hearings on the project to continue to the end of the year. The original deadline set by the Site Evaluation Committee was Dec. 18, 2016. That was already pushed to Sept. 30, 2017. The newest deadline for an oral decision is Feb. 28, 2018. A written decision is due March, 31. According to the story, adjudicative hearings have been going on for about 30 days, but not all of Eversource’s witnesses have been heard, nor have about 100 witnesses from the Counsel of the Public and project intervenors. Meanwhile the Concord City Council is still pushing back on plans to have transmission towers as tall as 160 feet in the city. The Monitor reported City Councilor Jennifer Kretovic spoke before the SEC arguing against the plan. She said the towers would be higher than the Statehouse dome and would harm the rural character of the city, something Concord has spent millions of dollars to preserve over the past decade, Kretovic said, according to the story. The council stopped short of opposing the project as a whole. The $1.6 billion high-voltage transmission project is proposing to deliver hydroelectric energy from Canada through northern New Hampshire to Deerfield over 192 miles.

New Hampshire’s loon population has been rebounding, albeit slowly, over the past 40 years. But man-made threats to loon health continue to cause mortalities, including a possible chemical dump in Squam Lake that has left just one loon chick on the lake this year — the first time that’s happened since 1975, when the Loon Preservation Committee started monitoring loons. “One loon chick is a dismal reproductive success,” said Harry Vogel, senior biologist and executive director of the Loon Preservation Committee.

The link between the chemical contaminants, first detected during a spike in chemical levels in 2005, and loon health is still uncertain, but there is a strong correlation with the die-off of birds in the lake. This year, several of the birds, which are listed as a threatened species and protected by state and federal laws from hunting and harassment, failed to return to Squam Lake. Vogel said they suspect the birds died. “It was a mixed year for loons, overall a challenging year,” Vogel said. While in most parts of the state populations increased, Squam Lake saw a decrease. One of the biggest threats to loons is lead fishing tackle, which poisons the birds when they scoop it up and swallow it, but the problems in Squam are from different contaminants. Vogel said since 2005 there have been relatively high concentrations of PCBs, DDTs, PBDEs, PFOA and PFOS detected in the loon eggs in Squam Lake, especially in the northern part of the lake. PCBs were once in an oil product used to keep the dust down on dirt roads and DDTs were used in insecticides. Both were banned from use nationwide in the 1970s because of harmful health effects on humans and the environment. PBDE is a flame retardant and PFOA and PFOS are used in making Teflon and similar materials. Between 2004 and 2005, about 44 percent of the loon population in Squam Lake died. “We’ve never seen close to half the loon pairs on a single lake be wiped out in a single year,” Vogel said. From 2005 to 2007, loon eggs in the lake had the highest concentrations of those chemicals, about two to nine times higher than those tested on other New Hampshire lakes. While levels have gone down, they’re still higher than elsewhere in the state. Earlier this year, the Loon Preservation Committee submitted a report to state regulators regarding some detective work the
committee did on the source of some of the chemicals. By testing crayfish, they were able to confirm that concentrations were higher in the northern parts of the lake. Then, by testing sediment, they could trace the PCBs to one tributary and DDTs to two other tributaries. The PCBs may have come old chemicals on old logging roads getting washed into the lake by storms, Vogel said. But the DDTs were either dumped intentionally into the watershed or an old barrel hidden in the forest could have rusted through, releasing the poisonous chemicals like a time-bomb. It could have taken a few years for rainwater to deliver them to the lake and another couple years for the chemicals to move up the aquatic food chain and end up accumulating in the loons. As for the PFOA and PFOS, Vogel said they’ve ruled out atmospheric deposition. While they have yet to pinpoint the source, Vogel is fairly sure the chemicals were dumped or spilled at a specific location. The committee is meeting with the state Department of Environmental Services, New Hampshire Fish and Game and the Department of Health and Human Services in the coming weeks to discuss ways to mitigate or clean up the contamination.
The issue of loons swallowing lead jigs and weights used in fishing has been well-documented since the 1980s, Vogel said. Recent legislation has helped to tamp that down a bit. In June 2016, the use of lead tackle weighing one ounce or less was banned. But people are still using them. There are four known loon deaths this year from lead tackle plus a fifth “highly probable” case pending confirmation. And these are not old jigs the birds are digging up, Vogel said. He said if the problem were ever-present, we’d see deaths throughout the season starting in April, but they always start in June and July, when humans start to go fishing. Plus, given enough time, lead tends to sink into the sediment.
The perfect storm
The metal and chemical contaminants are part of a perfect storm of factors that have been causing problems for loons in New Hampshire for decades. This year was especially difficult for loons; this spring was the fourth-wettest in the past 100 years for New Hampshire, and a number of storm events washed out loon nests. Statewide, there was a slight growth in the population with a few pairs gained, according to preliminary numbers. “The bad news is we’re still probably only halfway toward a recovered loon population,” Vogel said.

Tell me a bit about your background. Where are you from? I was originally born and raised in Vermont and worked for my parents’ small business and helping the community and moved on from there. Went to college in Massachusetts, Western New England College, a small business law college. How did you get into this line of work? Well, the truth is I had worked for Prudential for many years doing financial work for clients. I had learned about mutual funds and wanted to learn about that so that I could help my parents … in Canada, understand more about the market and help them with their retirement. … At the time, I worked in Bedford for many years and next to my office was a GMAC Mortgage office and I had gotten to know the manager pretty well. And one day [he said], “Hey, are you tired of people ignoring you when they find out you do insurance? Wouldn’t you rather they be more inquisitive about rates in the market?” That really attracted me and I quickly became a loan officer. So I’ve done mortgages since 1998. … I’ve been a loan officer for many years and back in 2008, when the economy took a hard turn, while I was doing mortgages, it was crickets in the business. … I noticed that I had talked to over 1,000 people in nine years that had bruised credit that never called me back. … I felt there was a need for me to create a system where I could have people get their credit fixed. … I found an organization called NACSO: National Association of Credit Services Organization. I got licensed and certified to help people with credit. … Through that, I created a system whereby I could help people track their progress and literally be transparent in the industry. … Helping people overcome the past gives them the confidence that moves them forward. What would you say is the biggest thing everyone need to start doing differently to improve their credit? Obviously, we all hear “pay your bills on time.” So, of course, having the ability to

pay bills is important. But there is a strategy behind what I do, which is basically creating a paradigm shift in people’s knowledge of credit. And of course, encouragement. When people have a hard time in Courtesy photo. life, they give up. … Then, of course, life changes. Whether it’s marriage, they realize that they’re wasting their money on renting, etc., that’s when people’s motivation changes. … There is a system that I teach people [about] when to pay your bills, what to buy, what not to buy. … But the most important thing is when people have had issues in the past, by removing those negative items and with teaching people how to better use credit, their scores go up dramatically. The two go hand in hand. Fixing one’s credit score seems like an uphill battle. Is it as hard as it seems? When you’re not aware of how the creditors look at a person, then yes, it’s a tremendous challenge to be able to get back, to raise their credit scores, as there’s so many algorithms in the FICO system that kind of keep people at a lower credit score because the banks make more money with higher interest rates, etc. … The more conscious you are and the more you pay attention then, yes, it does positively impact a person’s credit. What are some of the most common myths about the way credit scores work? Well, maxing out your credit cards will definitely bring your score down, especially if you’re applying for more credit. So, in terms of myths, getting a person’s credit score to go up quickly is easier when you have someone who knows how to do it … because a lot of people get stuck in doing what they’ve always done. … Your habits are really what’s kind of holding people back. … There are times when people receive a bill that says they’re not required to make a payment for X amount of months. I caution people on that because even though the bank may not require an actual payment, they’re still reporting through the credit reporting agency and there times when the person is actually being hit with late payments without anyone knowing until it’s too late. — Ryan Lessard

QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Overworked nurses
A report by Medicare Health Plans ranked New Hampshire 10th in the country among states with the most overworked nurses, according to NH Business Review. There are 9.2 nurses per 1,000 people, which comes out to 12,288 nurses for the state’s 1,330,608 residents. The national average is 12.8 nurses per 1,000 people. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for nurses in New Hampshire is also $3,550 less than the national average. QOL Score: -1 Comment: New Hampshire ranked slightly higher than the national average for the ratio of physicians to residents, however: three per 1,000, compared to the national average of 2.8 per 1,000.
New business in New Hampshire
The medical device company DermSpectra has relocated its home base from Arizona to the New Hampshire Seacoast, which Gov. Chris Sununu said is a result of his “100 Businesses in 100 Days” initiative, NHPR reported. For the initiative, Sununu resolved to meet with 100 out-of-state businesses in hopes of bringing them to New Hampshire. The move has knocked the company’s employee count down to 10, but it plans to expand to about 100 employees within its first year in the new location, with jobs in software, electrical engineering, business, finance, sales and operations. QOL Score: +1 Comment: The company’s founder, Karleen Seybold, and executive vice president, Linda Fanaras, grew up together in New Hampshire.

Hurricane donation scams
New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald is calling on residents to be cautious before donating money to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, the AP reported. Appeals for donations are often set up by scam artists during the aftermath of major disaster events, MacDonald said. He said people should think twice before giving to GoFundMe, CrowdRise or YouCaring fundraisers. Instead, people who want to donate should give directly to well-known charities such as the American Red Cross, United Way of Greater Houston and the SPCA of Texas, for example. QOL Score: -1 Comment: A big red flag should be raised when you get unsolicited calls or emails asking for donations.

NHPR reported the DOT will remove any loose concrete detected over the next few months and protective shielding will be installed beneath each bridge. The state has 140 red-listed bridges that are structurally deficient, 16 of which were prioritized for this effort because they were built around the same time and with similar features as the bridge in Derry. The bridges in question are located in Manchester, Concord, Bow, Amherst, Londonderry, Merrimack, Warner, Gilford and Lebanon. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Luckily, no one was hurt, and the state is taking steps to try to prevent more concrete from falling, but this illustrates just how badly some of our transportation infrastructure has been neglected. QOL score: 87 Net change: -2 QOL this week: 85 What’s affecting your Quality of Life here in New Hampshire? Let us know at email@example.com.

The Patriots begin their quest to win a sixth Super Bowl title during the Brady-Belichick era in Foxboro tonight vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, who figure to be in the mix to prevent that come playoff time. Doing that would tie them with the Pittsburgh Steelers for most SBs won by any franchise and give them a second time they’ve won three SBs in four years. No one has done that and it would cement the claim by some that they are the best and longestrunning dynasty ever in NFL history. The prospect of doing it became a little harder when Julian Edelman was lost for the season two weeks ago. But overcoming that kind of obstacle is something they do better than anyone else. Next Man Up is one of the things that has made them so great over 17 years and that is the ability/attitude I admire most about Coach B’s teams. This season comes following a wild off-season for the front office — a rare occurrence for a team coming off a Super Bowl win. But in the ongoing effort to stay ahead of the curve, Coach B made big changes in the backfield, added speed at wideout after having almost none out there since Randy Moss left, shook up (or let it get shaken up) the defensive end spot and did what he never does by paying giant money for DB Stephon Gilmore, which doubled as an in-your-face move to restricted free agent Malcolm Butler. Oh, and one more thing, due to incompetence (Jets), trading off its good players to rebuild (again, Buffalo) and injuries (Miami) the AFL East has imploded. All of this offers the prospect of a very exciting season. Or a major letdown, if they don’t meet the local over-the-top expectations. With that as a summary, here are the biggest stories to follow: Undefeated Season: That certainly would cap off the dynasty, wouldn’t it? The ques-

ly more nimble in the pocket and far better throwing on the run than ever before, as he threw just two picks to 28 TDs in 12 games. Big Weakness: With the defections of Chris Long and Jabaal Sheard, retirement of Rob Ninkovich and season-ending injury to top draft pick Derek Rivers, they need pass rush help at defensive end. Right now it’s Trey Flowers and untested players. Word is Dont’a Hightower will play on the outside to be a bigger factor in the pass rush, as will Shea McClellin. But even if Flowers steps up his production they need to trade for help. Big Pre-Season Camp Calamity: With Edelman going down before the first snap, the good news is Danny Amendola is an able replacement with a tremendous Super Bowl game on the resume. The bad news is he usually gets hurt at some point, so someone unknown needs to be ready if that happens. Adjustments on the Fly: I’m always intrigued by what Coach B and company will come up with in strategic changes to keep the train rolling after losing someone important. It happened after trading Randy Moss midway through 2010 when many said, “OMG, we’re screwed now, we have no one to take the top off the defense.” Instead he shifted to a tight end-centric, up the seam offense featuring rookies Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski. Or, who’ll step in out of nowhere to fill in like Randall Gay when Ty Law and Tyrone Poole went down in 2004. It even happened last year while still winning No. 5, when Jamie Collins was surprisingly traded and Gronk went down. If You Do Get to the Big Game, Who Do You Want There: The G-Men. Time to settle that score. Of course, if they (gulp) lost again, I’d have to face my Patriots-hating family annually at Thanksgiving with the big game record at 0-3. Hence, I want the G-Men.

tion is, can they do it? The answer: Are you crazy? That’s fan talk. Why not? First, it’s hard to do. Second, with the Chiefs, Falcons, Raiders and a game in Pittsburgh on the radar there are some big challenges. Plus, they almost always have an early stinker. I nominate Thursday night at Tampa Bay in Week 5. The Coach: Whether you like him or hate him, with the numbers and championships piling up you can’t deny he’s climbing the ladder to be called the greatest coach of all time. He needs eight wins to pass Tom Landry’s third-best 270, leaving just George Halas (311) and Don Shula (347) with more. As for his all-time status, left in the running for best in my lifetime are Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Don Shula and Bill Walsh. He’s already gone past Paul Brown, Joe Gibbs and Chuck Noll — who I’ve always thought won his titles partly thanks having an incredible 10 Hall of Famers to call on. That may be unfair, but Coach B has had one home-grown lock Famer. Walsh incidentally had four, Jimmie Johnson during the Dallas years five, Lombardi 10, Landry 11 and Shula a whopping 16 spread over 35 years. The Quarterbacks: With Brett Favre and Peyton Manning out of reach for now, Tom Brady will jockey with Drew Brees for third place in passing yards and TD passes all year. But that’s minor compared to his battle with Father Time at 40. That’s big, because with Jimmy Garoppolo’s contract up, if he ticks down over 10 percent, the brass faces an issue in February. That brings Coach B’s ambition into play. If it’s to cash out with a few more SB wins he can do that with TB-12. But if he’s aiming for Shula’s 347, that will require having a very good QB to hit the needed 13-win average for six more seasons. That would favor Jimmy G, or if he’s franchised, set up the weird scenario where the backup makes a lot more than the GOAT starter. Having said that, there was no drop-off at 39, where Brady was actual-

SPORTS DAVE LONG’S PEOPLE, PLACES & OTHER STUFF
Lavigne goes yard at Yankee The OMG – Awesome Local Homer of the Week: It comes from one-time Bedford Little Leaguer and now Bedford HS senior Grant Lavigne, who put one in the upper deck at Yankee Stadium last week while playing in the Summary Rivalry Classic. Yes, I said upper deck. The series is a showcase for the top high school prospects nationally with back-to-back games at Fenway and the Stadium. NHites Bryce Reagan of Souhegan and Cody Morrisette of Exeter were in the game as well. Sports 101: Who holds the record for most runs batted in by a catcher and whose record did he break that was set on Sept. 7, 1953? Hot Ticket: It’s coming a little earlier than usual, but it’s the annual gridiron battle between Central and Memorial, at 1 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at Chabot-McDonough Field — which for some inexplicable reason sent scribe John Habib into a full-fledged tizzy last week in his famed UL In The City column. Knick of Tyme Award: Tie. To Bow’s Will Russo for getting the game-winning goal in OT off an assist from Max Elsasser in Bow’s 3-2 soccer win over Goffstown. And to Bedford’s Emily O’Keefe for getting the
2 - under par score from Hooksett’s Matt Paradise to win the Queen City Golf Championship by four shots over Jake Nutter of Manchester CC. 5 - touchdowns accounted for by Bedford QB Connor Robert as the Bulldogs thumped Memorial 48-6 when he ran for two scores and threw for three more.
game-winner in OT off a rebound of Grace Rooney’s blast as the B-town field hockey team got off on a winning note in a 3-2 win over Concord. Thumbs Up: To pro athletes and team owners all over for getting behind national fundraising efforts to aid hurricane-ravaged Houston, like Patriots owner Bob Kraft, who’s pledged to match up to $1 million in donated funds for the city where his team won last year’s Super Bowl. Sports 101 Answer: The record for RBIs by a catcher is the 148 by Johnny Bench when he had what may be the greatest season ever by a catcher in his MVP year of 1970. He broke the record of three-time MVP Roy Campanella, who drove in his record-setting 125th run 63 years ago Sept. 7 for Brooklyn, a number he extended to 142 by year’s end. On This Day – Sept. 7: 1952 – Yankees lefty Whitey Ford becomes the fifth hurler to throw back-to-back one-hitters. 1979 – The then dubbed Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) makes its onair debut. 1980 – John McEnroe beats Bjorn Borg in five sets (7-6, 6-1, 6-7, 5-7, 6-4) to win an epic U.S. Open final.
4 – number of the day for Central when they were 4-0 winners over Alvirne behind that many saves by Hannah Autenreith and goals from Paige LaBerge, Erin Flurey, Gabby Paradis and Heather Jenatto. 7 – goals scored by Derryfield in a whitewashing over Dover when Austin Edwards, Mark Keiffer and Kai Razvi each scored twice.
158 – passing yards thrown for by Amherst’s Trevor (had a good) Knight in going 19-30 with 2 TDs as the U won a 24-23 nail-biter in its opener with archrival Maine. 1,500 – career strikeout mark reached by Red Sox ace Chris Sale when he struck out 11 and got his 14th win in a 3-0 decision over Toronto at the start of the week.
Don Shula: Won a record 347 games and inspired folksy Bum Phillips’ famous comment, which we’ll translate from Texas-ese to English, “he can take his and beat yours, and then he can turn around and take yours and beat his.” He got the Colts to the 1964 title game in Year 2 in Baltimore, instantly turned Miami from 4-10 to 10-4 and had the undefeated 1972 season. The downside: He was just 2-5 in title games and the undefeated club beat just two winning teams, who were both just 8-6. Vince Lombardi: Inherited a 1-11 team from Saint Anselm alum Scooter McLean after 1958 and had Green Bay in the title game by 1960. They lost to Philly but went back five more times, winning each, with the last two being Super Bowls I & II. Overall, he was 96-34-6 for a third-best .738 winning percentage. Pittsburgh Hall of Famers: In order of arrival: 1969 – Mean Joe Green. 1970 – Terry Bradshaw and Mel Blount. 1971 – Jack Ham. 1972 – Franco Harris. 1974 – Lynn Swann, Jack Lambert, John Stallworth and Mike Webster. OK, it’s nine, but LC Greenwood should be in too. Coach B’s Maybe Hall of Famers: Junior Seau is in and Randy Moss will get in, but neither won a Super Bowl here and they did their best work elsewhere aside from Moss’s remarkable 2007 season. Ty Law and Adam V. should get in. Gronk is probable, but with his injuries needs two more major seasons. The only other possible seems to be Richard Seymour.

ARTS Take it to the street
Urban arts celebration returns to Nashua By Angie Sykeny
Create your own art and watch art being created during the Downtown Arts Festival Saturday, Sept. 9, in Nashua. The festival is hosted by Positive Street Art and celebrates its mission to inspire a passion for urban art in a productive way. “Urban art is an outside-the-box version of art where [the artist] doesn’t necessarily have to come from a background of arts. It’s a form of expression that has no boundaries,” said the organization’s president, Cecilia Ulibarri. “Most people think we just do murals, but we actually do a lot of different things.” One of the highlights of the festival will be a live art battle, which is the finale to Positive Street Art’s live art battle series held this Positive Street Art live art battle. Courtesy photo. summer. Six finalists — two from each of the three previous art battles — will compete to Miami, Florida. The artists will have 90 minwin the grand prize, a chance to work on a utes with a blank canvas to create any kind of mural with another street art organization in art they choose with media like spray paint, acrylic paint and paint pens in front of a live audience. Downtown Arts Festival “The art always varies, because we don’t Where: Parc de Notre Renaissance Frangive them a theme,” Ulibarri said. “One year, caise, 4 Water St., Nashua someone did a painting of The Hulk.

Then, there are the abstract piec-
es. So it’s really up to them to create whatever is their vision for that day.” A panel of judges will judge the art based on criteria such as originality, composition, technique and the artist’s personality. “Some artists talk through their technique out loud, some are dancing while they’re painting, things like that,” Ulibarri said. “So the judges will look at the way they interact with the crowd.” Artwork created during the previous live
art battles and at the finale will be auctioned off at the festival. Another highlight is the dance battle, where people compete with their best street and hiphop style dance moves. The first-place winner chosen by a panel of judges will win a cash prize of $300. The audience can also vote for their favorite dancer to be named the people’s choice winner. Those interested in being dance contestants can sign up on the Positive Street Art website prior to the festival. Mounted photos from Positive Street Art’s “Views from a Cell” cell phone photography challenge will be on display. Anyone can submit a photo or photos that they’ve taken with a cell phone before the festival to be considered for the display. The submission form is on the Positive Street Art website. A marketplace will showcase local artists and vendors, and an artist will be doing a live art demonstration with spray paint on an easel. Attendees will have a chance to create their own art on a community chalkboard easel and with coloring pages. “It’s interesting to see how people are united at an event like this,” Ulibarri said. “We’re a diverse organization with people from all different backgrounds and experiences, and we want diversity to be part of this event. We want to make sure everyone knows that they can participate, and that art is for everyone.”

A ghostly play comes to the Hatbox Theatre By Angie Sykeny
Be sure to visit the dealer booths on our lower level
56 N. Main St., Concord NH • 603-856-0110 • www.hilltopconsignmentgallery.
Things get spooky in the New World Theatre’s newest production, The Final Reel, opening Friday, Sept. 8, at the Hatbox Theatre in Concord. The dark comedy-thriller was written by two Nashua English teachers, William Ivers and Walter Freeman. The plot centers on Ghost Encounters, a paranormal investigative reality show with a dwindling viewership. In hopes of recovering their reputation and keeping the show from getting canceled, the cast and crew decide to shoot the season finale at the supposedly haunted Leman Mansion on the coast of Maine, where Jacqueline Leman, a washed up former child actress, had a nervous breakdown and leapt to her death 50 years earlier. Things take a grisly and comic turn when the show, which has always fabricated its supernatural encounters with actors and camera effects, is met with a real haunting. “It has a very campy feel to it, mixing things from the 1940s with modern day television reality shows,” Managing Director and Producer Donald Tongue said. “There’s a very interesting comic mix there.” Much of the show’s humor is found in its characters — an egocentric paranormal expert, a pair of nerdy tech guys and a reality television show director who believes he’s the next Orson Welles — and in its witty dialogue. Director Toby Paul said the juxtaposition of horror and comedy is what attracted him to the play. “When you first read the script, it seems very dark and kind of gruesome,” he said, “but having the cast members read it out loud, you realize there’s a lot of good comedy in it.”

What’s most distinctive about the play, Paul said, is that it incorporates original film clips, which will be shown on two screens on the sides of the stage. Some of those clips as they relate to the play include an old newscast about Jacqueline Leman’s suicide, footage from her last film and paranormal footage caught by Ghost Encounters. “We had a film director come in and do some shoots at different locations. It’s DONALD TONGUE not something I’ve ever done before,” Paul said. “It’s neat working with those elements. I think we have a very unique show as far as … some of the technical aspects.” Producing a play like The Final Reel does have its challenges, Tongue said. Executing supernatural and gory effects and elaborate scenes like Jacqueline Leman jumping from the balcony required a lot of planning and thinking outside the box. “The ghosts, the blood, the spooky atmosphere — it’s not always easy to pull off in live theater and make it feel real,” he said. “I don’t want to give too much away about how we did it, but it was certainly an interesting challenge.” Based in Londonderry, New World Theatre focuses exclusively on producing new, original plays by regional playwrights. The Final Reel is its only production for 2017.
It has a very campy feel to it, mixing things from the 1940s with modern day ... reality shows.

The Hillsborough County Agricultural Fair, now in its 60th year, is returning to its roots by showcasing locally grown farming goods and promoting craftsmanship — though there will be more modern elements, like a digital scavenger hunt, too. The fair starts Friday, Sept. 8, and runs through Sunday, Sept. 10, and features competitions in tractor pulling, vegetable growing, animal raising and specialty crafts. “Our goal is to keep agriculture alive in today’s society. The more business and industry, the less agriculture there seems to be around,” said Danielle Deyo, the organization’s president. The tractor pulls are one of the biggest draws to the fair, Deyo said. The tractors compete in categories: stock Hillsborough County Agricultural Fair Where: The Hillsborough County Youth Center Fairgrounds, 15 Hilldale Lane, Route 13, New Boston When: Friday, Sept. 8; Saturday, Sept. 9, and Sunday, Sept. 10 Cost: $10 per adult age 13 and older, $5 for seniors, active military personnel, veterans and kids ages 6-12.

farm tractors, modified farm tractors and lawn tractors. The 1,000-pound farming machines can pull up to 5,000 pounds on average, Deyo said. The competition measures how much weight the tractors can pull for six feet without stopping. While the tractor, horse and truck pulls have grown in popularity over the years, Dayo said, the organization is trying to return to its heritage of promoting education and involvement in agriculture for children and teens. “We actually have gone more back to our roots,” said Deyo. “A lot of people don’t realize the amount of agriculture that goes into the fair.” Working with the 4-H youth development program, the fair hosts competitions for children and teens who have grown their own vegetables and raised their own animals. “I’m hoping the younger generations will come up and be interested in the different crafts,” said Deyo. There are hundreds of categories for home-grown fruits and vegetables, livestock and handcrafted items. Deyo said judges look for quality and not necessarily size in the produce categories. Jenell George works for UNH Cooperative extension, which partners with the 4-H organization and has been involved with the fair for 15 years. She said the locally grown agriculture the fair promotes has become

more important to the local economy in the last decade. “It’s increasingly more important. People want to know how their food is grown, where it comes from, and they want to talk to the people who made it,” said George. To stay current, the fair has adopted a digital archival system so they can easily access records on past winners in the hundreds of competition categories. “The biggest change we’ve seen is in tech emergence,” said George. A digital scavenger hunt utilizing Snapchat and Instagram will have players finding items at the fair and then posting their finds on the social media platforms. The 4-H students compete in categories related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics. On Sunday, for example, there will be
a 4-H robotics demo featuring computerized machines that the kids have worked on all year. And then there’s the 4-H Chicken Crowing Contest and Agility Show. “They actually dress up the chickens and do a little parade,” said Dayo. In other animal action, the Renaissance Stable Horse Vaulting Team will perform for the first time in the fair’s history, according to Dayo. The performers do dance and gymnastic routines while riding on the backs of trained horses that circle the pen. Food vendors and carnival rides will fill the fairgrounds throughout the weekend. Deyo said her favorite food vendors are Jeff Young’s fried Oreos, Twinkies and candy bars, Pat’s Cider Doughnuts, which are served fresh out of the fryer, and Angelino’s Sausage, which has been at the fair for 30 years.

I fell in love this summer — with a tree. The Northern catalpa (Catalpa speciosa) is a fast-growing tree that blooms beautifully in late June in my part of the world. The flowers, about 2 inches long and wide, are white with two lobes and purple or lavender stripes inside. They are deliciously fragrant. I got a 10-foot-tall specimen at E.C. Brown Nursery in Thetford, Vermont. It is very important to find the “trunk flare” before planting a tree. That is the lower part of the trunk that flares out above ground in the trees planted by Mother Nature. The flare is waterproof, but if buried in soil or mulch it will rot and the important cambium layer can be damaged, injuring the tree. When young trees are put in pots the flare is often covered by 3 inches of soil or more. If not corrected, trees with buried trunk flare often die in six to 10 years because their trunks are essentially girdled by the rot. If you have a tree with a trunk that doesn’t flare at ground level, pull back some soil until you can see the trunk flaring out. Cut away the little roots you will encounter. It’s important to dig the hole for a tree the proper depth. You want to place the root ball on unexcavated earth so that it will not settle into a lower position that will fill in with soil or mulch, covering the trunk flare. The hole should be wide, not deep. I uncovered the trunk flare in my catalpa, which was just an inch or so below the soil line in the pot. There were plenty of small roots in that inch of soil I removed, and I just cut them away. I also looked for roots encircling the root ball because it’s important to cut those back, and to tease out roots from the root ball before planting. I used my fingers to loosen roots at the edge of the root mass after removing the tree from its plastic pot. Next, I measured the root ball. It was 16 inches wide and 12 inches deep. I dug a hole three times the width, and just an inch or two deeper than the depth of the root ball. I dug the hole with sloping sides down to the bottom. I used a hoe to scrape the bottom of the hole to make it flat. As I dug, I placed the soil from the hole in wheelbarrows. One wheelbarrow was for topsoil, another for the poor-quality subsoil I encountered at the bottom of the hole. I was fortunate to find just a thin layer of subsoil — heavy clay, then sand beneath that. The sand will ensure good drainage. If you have only a shallow layer of decent topsoil, you may want to replace some of the subsoil you encounter with topsoil that you purchase in bags. But don’t replace all your
Make sure the tree is straight in all directions.
soil, even if it’s not of good quality. Mix topsoil 50-50 with the crummy soil only if most of the soil is of poor quality. A teacher at Vermont Technical College once told me to imagine a tree as a wine glass sitting on a dinner plate. The wine glass is the tree we see, the dinner plate is the root system. So the tree needs to spread its roots far and wide. Creating a planting hole full of compost and rich topsoil will encourage the roots to stay in the original hole instead of spreading out. That’s known as the “bathtub effect.” To dig the hole the proper depth, I used a board (or a rake handle) to span the hole, measuring from time to time as I approached the proper depth. I dug down 14 inches for my 12-inch rootball, and in the bottom of the hole I added some of the better topsoil I’d dug up. I packed that down so it wouldn’t settle. Mother Nature does not use fertilizer when she plants trees. I don’t either. Fertilizers contain nitrogen, which stimulates fast green growth. But I want my tree to get established, spread its roots, and grow at a moderate rate. I did add two mineral products that I bought in bags. First, I added trace minerals in a mix sold as Azomite. It is a mix of some 70 minerals from volcanic and sea sources, mined and packaged in Utah. I have found it to add vigor and resistance to stress in plantings. The other product is called green sand. It is mined from a formerly undersea deposit in New Jersey. It is a good source of potassium and trace minerals. Potassium helps build strong cell walls. I also paid attention to the north-south orientation of the tree. Trees develop thicker bark on their south sides because they get more sun there. If a tree is planted with the north side from the nursery facing south at your house, the bark can develop sun scald in winter, crack, and damage the tree. Trees generally have more branches on the south side, so I planted the bushier side facing south. Watering trees is important the first year, and even in dry times during the second year. I made a ring of soil around the tree to keep water from running away. And an inch or two of ground bark mulch will help to keep the soil from drying out.

Your pin was made from a British 1821 coin. Unfortunately, the front is now a monogrammed design and the back is barely visible as well — making this coin no longer valuable except for decorative uses and the story that goes behind it. Making pins, bracelets and necklaces from coins has been done for many years. Some were made as tokens of love during war times. It’s tough to tell when this coin was made into a pin but one would assume it was later than the 1821 date shown. Now, if you go and do some research on your coin you will see that in mint condition it could be worth around $2,000. But, as I said, now it is just a bit of history — and wouldn’t it be nice to find out who did it for whom?

IN/OUT CAR TALK
Stop-start feature is new and aggravating, but worthwhile
By Ray Magliozzi
Dear Car Talk: We have just purchased a new 2017 Jeep Cherokee. We love it. But it has one irritating “feature” that is quite annoying: The engine cuts off at every stop — presumably to save fuel — and then restarts when I take my foot off the brake. How can this be good for the longevity of the starting components: battery, starter, solenoid, flywheel, etc.? When the engine stops, the air conditioner and radio keep running, further draining the battery. There is a button on the dash to cancel out this feature, but it must be reengaged after every start. Is there a way to program this to default to the alwaysoff position rather than the always-on? Thanks. — Bill Not that I know of, Bill. Automat-
ic stop-start is on lots of new cars now. It increases your mileage by a few percent because your engine isn’t idling when you’re sitting at a traffic light. It also eliminates pollution from cars sitting idle at traffic lights, which is great for cities. But it’s still a relatively new feature, and some manufacturers seem to do it better than others. We test-drive cars all the time, and on some, the stop and the restart are barely perceptible — if you were paying attention, you’d notice it, but it wouldn’t bother you. Then there are other cars that restart with a mild earthquake of a shudder, and that quickly gets annoying enough that we’ll turn off the feature. I’m not sure what factors make some cars entirely acceptable and others not. But I suspect they include the quality of the engine mounts, the amount of insulation between the passenger compartment and the engine bay, and the mass of the engine itself, with smaller engines being easier to make subtle. That leads us to the next thing that’s different from car to car. I’d say most cars require you to turn off the automatic stop-start each time you drive the car.
A few will remember your preference the next time you drive, but that’s a minority. I’m guessing that the car’s mileage rating would be dinged if an owner could easily, and permanently, turn off the start-stop. So the manufacturer wants to discourage that. And besides, the benefits are meaningful. Not just for you, but for everyone breathing nearby. It’s a little too early to say with certainty what, if any, downsides there are — other than the shudder, if that bothers you. Carmakers have mostly beefed up their starting systems to accommodate more-frequent and faster starts. And some are working on better bearing technology to reduce the wear and tear the crankshaft bearings receive during startup. We’ll know, over time, whether there are unforeseen consequences. But if you do a fair amount of city driving, we know it’s saving you money on gas and improving the air we breathe. So if you can stand it, I’d say use it. And if you can’t stand it, then you’ll just have to add a new item to your morning routine, Bill: Get in the car, turn the key, put it in gear, turn off the stop-start and then back over the rosebushes.
Dear Car Talk: My heater core started leaking, so I plugged the hoses going to the heater. I live in Hawaii, so I don’t need the heater. After a few months, I noticed that the plugs I had installed had started to crack. They’re not the same-quality rubber as the hoses. So, I replaced the plugs with a hose that just connects the coolant line going to the heater core with the coolant line coming from the heater core. Then I started to notice that the car runs rough in traffic. Did I do this wrong? — Charles “Don’t need heat.” Sure, rub it in, Charles! You did it exactly right. You basically take the two hoses off the heater core, you stick them together and you’re done. That way, the coolant will continue to circulate, even though it no longer goes through the heater core. And bypassing the heater core should have no effect at all on the performance of the engine, Charles. So there’s something else wrong that’s causing your rough engine operation in traffic. What else did you “fix” recently, Charles? I’d start there. Visit Cartalk.com.

Rubber ducks, real chickens Auburn Day celebration returns for 25th year By Ethan Hogan
Rubber ducks, pretty chickens and apple pie are some of the highlights of this year’s Auburn Day and Duck Race, an event that celebrates the town and local farmers and artisans. The 25th Annual Auburn Day and Duck Race is being held on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Auburn Village at 22 Hooksett Road. The event is hosted by the Auburn Historical Association and is its main fundraiser each year. Morgen Connor, who grew up in Auburn and now lives in Hooksett, finds time every year to help her family organize the event. She said the duck race, with a first-place prize of $1,000, remains a highlight of the event. Participants buy a $5 yellow rubber duck that is labeled with a number. At 2:30 p.m. the ducks are released into the brook and the first duck to fall over the village waterfall and reach the finish line wins. With no strategy involved, Connor said anyone can win. “The kids get really into it, and it’s really fun to watch,” she said. Guest can increase their chances of winning if they buy quack packs for $20 and get five ducks into the race. A Kids Blow Duck Race at 1 p.m. uses inflatable ducks that take the same route and give the kids a race all to Auburn Day and Duck Race Where: The Auburn Village at 22 Hooksett Road, Auburn When: Saturday, Sept. 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost: Free Website: auburnday.com Schedule Saturday, Sept. 9 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pretty Chicken Contest 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. DJ Paul Lepine 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. NH Made vendors 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Arthur Beaudarlant wood carver 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Civil War Encampment 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Diane Vinyard - wood turning 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Marston Pottery demonstration 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wildlife Encounters 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Roaming Railroad 11 a.m. Heel to Toe Square Dance Club Noon Apple pie contest 12:30 p.m. Ameri-Kids 1 to 3 p.m. Cracker Jack the Clown 1 p.m. Pinkerton marching band 1 p.m. Kids blow-up duck race 2:30 p.m. Official duck race

themselves. The apple pie contest at noon is competitive every year, with winners using unique ingredients to make an impression on the judges. Last year’s second-place winner infused caramel with their recipe and the third-place winner used three types of apples and one type of orange. The pies are made by New Hampshire residents and have to be made of 60 percent apple. The three Auburn selectmen judge the pies every year, according to Connor. The top three get handmade pottery from Salmon Falls Stoneware in Dover. After the winners are picked, the pies are cut and served for $3 a slice. “They never have any leftovers, and it’s hard when you have to judge one against the other,” said Connor. This year, a Pretty Chicken contest will showcase local residents’ best chickens. Guests at the event will each get one ticket to vote for their favorite chicken. The owner of the winning hen gets $30, according to the event’s website. Sixty-five local vendors will line Hooksett Road by the village waterfall selling and giving out samples of their homemade products. Connor said she appreciates the hard work her neighbors put into their craft and is curious about what they are working on each year. “It’s always fun to hear and taste and see what your neighbors are up to,” said Connor. The Eaton Hill Farm beekeepers are popular every year with their homemade honey. Connor said showcasing locally made products helps celebrate Auburn’s people and the work they do. “It adds a lot more depth and value to the event, it adds more of a personal connection to what they’re selling,” said Connor. Hooksett Road will be closed for vendors during the all-day, outdoor event.

Explain what your current job is. I am a landscape specialist for the Department of Transportation in the bureau of highway design in a little section called roadside development. My job consists of a pretty wide range of duties, such as … landscape design work after construction projects, wildflower and lilac planting contracts along the interstates and spraying of invasive species along state right of way. … Spraying invasives along state right-of-ways [is the most time-consuming]. … The wildflower and lilac planting along the interstate … [it’s] enjoyable to see them flower, and we get a lot of nice comments from the public. So that’s rewarding.

Vineyard celebrates 10th anniversary with Hollis Grape Festival By Matt Ingersoll
Early to mid-September is peak grape-harvesting season, and Fulchino Vineyard will celebrate the fruit with wines, gelato, Italian ice, a traditional grape-stomping barrel and more at the inaugural Hollis Grape Festival. The free event will be held on the Hollis Town Common on Sunday, Sept. 10, from 4 to 6 p.m. “The theme of the event itself is similar to the feeling and tradition of a strawberry or an apple-picking festival,” said Al Fulchino of Fulchino Vineyard. “This is a great time of year for grapes, and it’s also our 10th anniversary [at Fulchino Vineyard], so since we grow grapes to make some of our wines, we Courtesy photo. thought it’d also be a great way to showcase what we do … and to give back.” sold will benefit the Hollis Police Benevolent All profits from donations and products Association.

Members of the Hollis Police Benevolent Association will also be there to help out at some of the booths and for meet-and-greets, according to Fulchino. Live Italian music performed by Rick Ruggiero will take place from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. “There will of course be grape slush, water and other beverages as well,” Fulchino said. The new festival is a precursor to a few other events happening later this fall that will also commemorate the Vineyard’s 10th anniversary, including a similar grape and wine festival on site during a later weekend in September to benefit Symphony New Hampshire, and an anniversary-themed farm-to-table harvest dinner tentatively set for Oct. 15. “[Late August] is the time of year when I will take sugar readings from grapes. … I’m estimating we’re only about two or three weeks away from the start of their harvest,” Fulchino said. “So I thought it would be a nice kind of agricultural event and a nice chance for different local communities to get together at the same time.”

The seven largest regions of Indonesia — Papua, Sumatra, Maluku, Sulawesi, Kalimantan, Bali and Java — will be represented through authentic food at the Somersworth Indonesian Fair on Saturday, Sept. 9. “All of the foods come from these different islands, and every island has a taste,” said Raude Raychel, president of Indonesian Community Connect, which organizes the fair each year. “There are some [dishes] that are sweeter, and some that are spicier.” The event, which also features live music, dancing, crafts and a parade, is happening for a fifth year and is free to attend. Formerly known as the Jakarta Fair (named after Indonesia’s capital city), it was originally held closer to Indonesian Independence Day on Aug. 17 but was recently moved to early September. Food vendors from Maryland, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut and the Boston area, in addition to several in New Hampshire, will gather for the fair. Raychel said popular food options include nasi kuning, a yellow rice dish cooked with coconut milk and turmeric, rendang, a spicy beef curry dish, nasi lemak and nasi uduk, a coconut rice combo served with either meats like fried chicken or vegetables, and lemper ayam, a rice and chicken dish wrapped in banana leaves. If you’re new to Indonesian cuisine and don’t know where to start, Raychel recommends the chicken, beef or pork sate, which is served with all different kinds of sauces and spices, depending on its region of origin. “Sate is the same thing as like any kind of skewered meat, but the Indonesian versions

have a lot of their own special spices to them that make them taste a lot different,” she said. “You can go to any city and get chicken on a skewer, but ours is more rich in different flavors. … The chicken one is always served with a peanut sauce, and the pork sate can be made with a sweet soy sauce.” Specialty desserts and drinks that highlight different islands, like es teler, a fruit cocktail made with coconut milk, sugar, avocado, cincau and other jackfruit, will also be available. Visitors can either purchase food to eat on site or get it to go, according to Raychel. In addition to the food, several craft vendors will have booths set up to showcase Indonesian batik, a traditional type of dyed fabric, as well as language exchange booths and a batik costumed fashion show. There will also be live music throughout the day from Boston Collaborative Musicians, AJ & the Lads, and other contemporary performers who will be demonstrating instruments of Indonesian origin like the angklung and the kolintang, and traditional dances from the island of Papua. New to this year’s fair will be an Indonesian cultural parade down Memorial Drive, which will feature authentic costumes from communities all across the archipelago nation. Raychel said the fair is all about educating the public about Indonesian culture through its food, crafts, music and other traditions.

Ideas from off the shelf
Zucchini Cheesy Bread Last weekend, a girlfriend of mine from college came to visit, and, as we tend to do, we spent the weekend drinking wine and searching for cheese in every shape and form we could find it. One restaurant that we found ourselves in served something called a mozzarella log. Curious to find out what this log was all about, we ordered it and were sorely disappointed with the poorly battered and deep fried grilled cheese-like blob. So, still on the hunt for some satisfying cheesy, gooey snacks, we headed for home, having decided to whip something up on our own. This recipe for zucchini cheesy bread has been popping up all over my social media feeds. Usually I don’t buy into the hype of these trending recipes, but this one looked too good to ignore. Fortunately, I had nearly everything the recipe called for, excluding parsley and corn starch. I nixed the parsley and substituted flour for corn starch; I also used four small zucchinis instead of the three medium ones the recipe called for. I was ecstatic with the finished product. Anything with more than three cups of cheese in it must be good in my book, and this zucchini cheesy bread didn’t disappoint. I was also pleasantly surprised that the flavor of the zucchini came through in every bite, which helped offset the guilt of stuffing ourselves with that much cheese. Zucchini Cheesy Bread Recipe adapted from Delish 4 small zucchini 2 large eggs 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 3 cups shredded mozzarella, divided 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan (or pre-grated) 1/4 cup flour (or cornstarch) Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley Marinara, for dipping
A hint of spice from red pepper flakes helped cut through the saltiness of the cheese, and the oregano added a bit of earthiness and another depth of flavor. The most time-consuming part of this recipe was grating the zucchini. Everything else was just measuring and mixing. The flour and egg seemed to bind the zucchini well enough without the corn starch, but I also used pantry-friendly pre-grated Parmesan cheese instead of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, which I think helped better bind the “bread.” Overall, this recipe was a hit. It paired perfectly with marinara, which was a welcome change of flavor and texture from the cheesy bread. While there were a handful of fresh ingredients, namely the zucchini and the cheese, the rest of the recipe was pantry-friendly. Plus, it came together quickly, taking only about 35 minutes from start to finish, including prep time. This recipe made a large pan of the cheesy bread that my friend, my husband and I barely made a dent in, and it will certainly be making its way into my party rotation as a great appetizer. — Lauren Mifsud
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, grate zucchini. Using a cheesecloth or dish towel, wring excess moisture from the zucchini. Add the eggs, garlic, oregano, 1 cup of mozzarella, Parmesan, flour, salt and pepper. Stir until well combined. Press the mixture into the lined pan to form the “bread.” Bake for about 25 minutes or until dried out and slightly golden. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining 2 cups of mozzarella on top, along with the red pepper flakes and parsley. Bake for an additional 7 to 8 minutes or until remaining cheese is melted.

they can have a remarkable range of flavor profiles, from earthy and mild to lively and spicy. At Lithermans, brewers change up this recipe seasonally, resulting in an “ever-evolving” beer.” Put it on your list each season. “Day Raider Belgian White” by Kelsen Brewing Co. (kelsenbrewing.com) in Derry: Wheat beers have become a staple of summer, but the Day Raider boasts an interesting complexity, as it is brewed with oats, pilsner, malted wheat and Kelsen’s own blend of coriander, chamomile and orange peel. A tasty and refreshing brew that just has more to it than a run-of-themill wheat beer.
“Mt. Uncanoonuc Cream Ale” from Stark Brewing Co. (starkbrewingcompany.com) in Manchester: Light, refreshing Not necessarily summer beers, but and creamy — perfect for that last, realhere are seven beers to enjoy as you try ly hot day that we all know is coming. It’s to hold off the onslaught of pumpkin: creamy but not heavy. It goes down easy. “E09 Tropical Lager” by 603 Brewery (603brewery.com) in Londonderry: Hazy and with juicy tropical hops, this is an excellent option for when you want some hops, but when you’re also a little overheated, because, again, it’s still summer.
“Auburn American Red Ale” by Able Ebenezer (ableebenezer.com) in Merrimack: A red ale doesn’t necessarily scream summer, but this is a deliciously smooth offering that’s definitely not too heavy and “Tangled Up In Bruges Saison” by Lith- presents a nice alternative from the hop craze. ermans Limited (www.lithermans.beer) in Concord: Saisons are intriguing to me as “Vunderbar! Pilsner” by Smuttynose Brewing Co. (smuttynose.com) in PortsWhat’s in My Fridge mouth: Light, refreshing and crisp — just like a pilsner should be.

See you next Spring!
The air is crisp, cool and dry. The new school year has begun. Labor Day has come and gone. Pumpkin is — suddenly — everywhere. There are pumpkin-spiced lattes and pumpkin-infused whoopie pies, and actual pumpkins. And then there’s pumpkin beer. I’m hardly anti-pumpkin, but I am here to make the case that maybe you should just hold off on pumpkin for a few weeks or maybe even a month. It’ll be OK. Because it’s still summer and the fact that the air was crisp, cool and dry recently is really more a product of a New England weather oddity than that fall is truly upon us. You and I both know we’re hitting 90 degrees again before the month is out, and you couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me you want a pumpkin beer on a 90-degree day. The reality is that I love the maltiness of many fall and winter seasonal brews that feature big flavors of pumpkin, nutmeg, coffee, roasted chocolate and cinnamon. But those flavors can wait. Specifically, pumpkins can wait. Really, like all winter squash, pumpkins are hardy. They’ll be OK on Oct. 1. There will be plenty of pumpkin beer for you next month, but for now, let’s go ahead and drink some great New Hampshire beer that doesn’t have any pumpkin in it.
“Squeeze” IPA by Great Rhythm Brewing Co. (www.greatrhythmbrewing.com) in Portsmouth: I love the brewer’s philosophy of finding “flavorfully hoppy beers for every occasion.” The Squeeze IPA boasts flavors of tangerine and papaya, and at 5.7-percent ABV it’s not too heavy for some late summer beer drinking. I haven’t had the chance to explore this brewery just yet, but it features quite a variety of IPAs — perfect for hop-heads and regular beer drinkers alike.

al plethora of hop varieties. The Mosaic was a nice reminder that if you have the right hops — even if it’s just one hop strain — you’re good. Deliciously hoppy, not overly juicy and not too heavy. Very nice IPA.

Same old story, four kids who live near Amish country in Pennsylvania decide they can be hipsters but accidentally make decent songs, thrusting them into the dog-eat-dog netherland of trying to compete with everything else that’s covered by Rolling Stone and NPR instead of hoping the Pitchfork writers aren’t having a bad day. This is their third album, boasting a more angular approach than the two previous ones, where frontman Rob Grote was doing more of a Bono thing over the indie-power-trio equivalent of tattered linen, meaning the tunes basically rocked but in an ethereal fashion. In this LP, the guitars are more angular and straightforward, while Grote’s voice eases up a bit, making him sound more like The Cure’s Robert Smith on “Ordinary Day.” Opener “If Before I Wake,” however, is a muffled mid-tempo stoner bit reminiscent of Manchester Orchestra if anything, while “Point” is like a slow-mo clip of Buzzcocks trying to out-songwrite Goo Goo Dolls. Top-drawer choice for something to augment your sports-bar’s vibe. A — Eric W. Saeger

Take the slightly jagged edge of Spoon, soften it with Wilco filters and add a liberal dose of Vampire Weekend’s percussion fetish and you have the fourth album from this Portland, Oregon, band, the progressive-rockleaning unit that’s had to persevere through members getting into motorcycle accidents and battling cancer and wound up intact, lucky for everyone. It’s got claps and things that could come out of the 808 you have in the attic somewhere, but it’s not one of those interminably cheesy things that seem to wash over this desk in waves, and although it wants to get as goofy as Menomena it really doesn’t, aside from some brief detours. One of the two singers does a pretty good Conor Oberst imitation (the Grizzly Bear-ish “Airplane Junkyard,” which benefits from some pretty clever vocal samples). Bottom line is that the songs keep to the current palette of Pitchfork-approved sounds, stay technically interesting and get pretty loud, almost Zep-like, just when you’re starting to space out. It’s up there with M83’s first record, certainly. A+ — Eric W. Saeger

• Goth-techno princess Zola Jesus is still the It Girl of the music scene, no doubt about it. Constantly doing weird stuff but keeping it real, she now identifies her tuneage as “Hypnagogic pop,” which, after you boil off all the nonsense-words that led up to the term’s invention, just means “retro-future tunes, like 1980s futurepop reinterpreted 30 years later.” I know, it’s stupid, but Zola is so awesome, let’s just let it go. Her new LP, Okovi, is due out Sept. 8, and wait’ll you get a load of the second single, “Soak,” an electro-washed chill-down that’s like Siouxsie Sioux trying to act like Bjork. I’m telling you, if there were such a thing as gender-flipped groupies, I’d go to Zola Jesus shows and toss my sexiest gym socks near her on the stage until she noticed me batting my eyes. • Not to be outdone by some young weirdo like Zola Jesus, old weirdo Tori Amos will release Native Invader, her 15th fulllength, on Sept. 8. Amos originally set out to make a mildly upbeat LP centered on the stories of her mother’s family in North Carolina, but then her mom had a stroke and the 2016 election happened and then the album became a downer thing, with more typically weird bummer tunes, such as the single “Cloud Riders.” OK, it’s not a super-sad tune, but it’s got more straight-up 1990s-chick-rock feel to it than you usually get with Amos, like it’s sad, but kind of fake, like something Shawn Colvin would cook up to remind everyone about “Sunny Came Home.” • You may have thought you’d escaped San Francisco DIY noise-poppers Deerhoof this year, but I’m sorry, here, have more jagged guitars and anti-hooks, if indeed that’s what their forthcoming new LP Mountain Moves is made of. Checking the new single “I Will Spite Survive,” we find they’re still a rebellious, tuneless mess with Gang of Four guitars and Satomi Matsuzaki’s gauzy j-pop singing, but this time they sound like The Cars from 1980, maybe because Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner is guest-singing, but more because the song kind of rips off The Cars. Don’t worry, you’ll get the hang of all this. • Despite all his awesomeness — writing songs like “Whippin’ Post” and “Melissa” — Gregg Allman couldn’t stay away from demon alcohol, and it got so bad that he ended up dying of liver cancer in May. He kept it secret, though, so he could continue to do music, and his final solo record, Southern Blood, comes out Sept. 8. It’s mostly a covers deal that includes a remake of Tim Buckley’s “Once I Was,” but the lead single is “My Only True Friend,” an original bluegrass-rock ballad whose lyrics sure read like a farewell. — Eric W.

ipants in writing about their impressions and thoughts about the sea and transforming those notes into memoir. It will include a 90-minute trip aboard the gundalow Piscataqua (weather permitting) as the basis for the workshop exercises. Piper said the showcase is intended to give people who are interested in taking the workshop a taste of the type of writing they’ll be doing. “Certainly when you have a memCAROLINE PIPER orable experience, the joy is being able to relive it and bring people along with you,” she said, “so we’re hoping this [showcase] will be a chance to travel alongside these four writers, and then be inspired to do it on your own.” Anderson will instruct the workshop. “Hopefully when people hear these stories [at the showcase], they’ll realize that they have their own stories they want to tell about their experiences by the water or on a boat,” Anderson said. “It’s exciting to hear new voices and see all of the different ways people can write about this theme.”

Four writers who have found creative inspiration at sea will read from some of their nautical works during “Beyond the Ship’s Log,” a writers’ showcase happening Sunday, Sept. 10, at The Word Barn, an intimate performing arts venue in Exeter. The Word Barn will host the showcase in partnership with The Boatshop at Strawbery Banke, an offshoot of Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth that offers expanded maritime-related exhibits, demonstrations, workshops and programs. “Being out on the water is an interesting vehicle for experiencing nature and life, and how do you capture what’s meaningful about those experiences?” said Caroline Piper, program director of the Boatshop, who proposed the idea to The Word Barn owner Sarah Anderson. “For some, it’s taking pictures; for some, it’s drawing or painting, and for others, it’s writing.” The featured writers include Anderson, a poet and freelance writer; Nicholas Brown, a columnist; Erica Plouffe Lazure, a fiction writer; and Kate Garaffa, a blogger. Each will read from their writing for around 15 minutes and then, if time allows, the audience will have a chance to ask the writers questions. Anderson said a number of her poems contain images or scenes reminiscent of her summers spent by the water and in boats. She hadn’t realized that her poetry had so many sea-inspired elements until she started looking through it after Piper asked if she’d be interested in reading at the event. “It seems like certain images keep coming back and recur in my poetry, and [the sea] is one of them,” she said. “The whole poem isn’t necessarily sea-related but there are echoes of it throughout my work.” The showcase is a prelude to The Boatshop’s workshop, “Beyond the Ship’s Log: Capturing the Spirit of your Adventures with the Written Word,” happening at Strawbery Banke on Sunday, Oct. 22.

odd walk. Simon Fitzmaurice thought his shoes must not be fitting well because one foot seemed to drop, making an odd clomping sound on the sidewalk — like it was numb or had fallen asleep. Fitzmaurice stopped into a shoe store to buy a new pair of shoes. “Have you ever seen anything like this?” he asked the shoe clerk. As it turned out, that was the very first indication that his life was going to be changed forever. After many wrong diagnoses, in 2008 award-winning movie director and screenwriter Simon Fitzmaurice, a resident of Ireland, was diagnosed with ALS — Lou Gehrig’s disease. He was given four years to live. Four years to do everything he had planned to do with his life. He got married, he continued to write and he fathered three children. In 2010 he experienced a lung-function collapse while in the hospital and was intubated in order to give his body the oxygen he needed to stay alive. If Fitzmaurice ever wanted to leave the hospital he’d have to always be connected to a ventilation machine. The only problem was that Ireland’s health service did not advocate home ventilation for ALS patients. Instead protocol suggested counseling and medication to prevent pain as the “plug is pulled.” Yes, in Ireland, if you have ALS, you are supposed to go gently into the night. Fitzmaurice — a young father, completely paralyzed and dependent on a machine to breathe for him — had other plans. He petitioned and won the right to be home-ventilated. Since that day he has written screenplays (using a visual keyboard), fathered twins (yes, he says, that particular muscle still works) and written this stunning memoir. His journey and this book are testament to human courage, faith and hope. Not the hope that he will someday get better, but instead the hope that while he is still breathing he can make a difference. I read this memoir while on a border-toborder 105-mile walk of New Hampshire with my son. It’s a small book, a quick read. I threw it in my backpack so that I’d have something to do during our walking breaks. I had no idea that Fitzmaurice’s journey would make such a profound impact on how I think about my family, health and life. I thought of Fitzmaurice as blisters popped up on my feet and my shins started to hurt. I was in pain, but at least I was walking. I told my son about the book, and we had conversations about wheth-
er we thought we were strong or brave enough to live a life of permanent immobility. We marveled in admiration at the strength and courage it took to do so. We both wondered whether, if put to the test, we would have been brave enough to make the decision Fitzmaurice made — to continue living a painful, limited life when an escape was so near. In short paragraphs and using poetic and visual language, Fitzmaurice, in a reminder that he doesn’t have a heck of a lot of time to waste, focuses on the pure emotion in each of his messages. In one passage he writes about how there are days when the ALS seems to break him, when he sees all that he can no longer do, when his friends can’t understand him, when he can’t reach out and hold his children, but then there are other days. “And then my boys pass the doorway on their scooters. Dot. Dot. Dash. Or wander into the room in their pyjamas, in the middle of some elaborate world of lizards and kings, the youngest watching his brothers with the silent eyes of glass. Or one simply stands in the doorway, looks at me and says Hi, Dadda. And I remember. And I write. Writing is my fighting.” The inspirational grace and power that radiate from this small book are astounding. It’s a story that you will think about many times in your life when presented with a difficulty. What will you do? Where is your breaking point? When is enough enough? And are you grateful for what you already have? Simply put everyone, absolutely everyone, should read this book. A+ — Wendy E. N. Thomas

Tulip Fever (R)
Two women try to manage their unnecessarily complex love lives during a boom in the tulip market in 1630something Amsterdam in Tulip Fever, an enjoyably dumb soapy romance.

destroying her reputation and employability. Hmm, I wonder if anyone will come up with a harebrained plan to solve both of these problems! Perhaps a seriously shady doctor (Tom Hollander) and a complicated scheme involving yet more tulip speculation will figure in to it some how. I’ll confess: when looking at last weekend’s movie theater listings — which I think were best described by the phrase “here’s some random stuff” — I specifically picked Tulip Fever out of a handful of other movies you’ll probably never hear about again as the movie to review. And, I’ll also confess, I specifically picked it because it looked like a dopey movie about people in corsets and doublets having sexy times. And that’s what it was! I’m kind of delighted! It’s not good, it’s not well-written or well-acted, but it was as expected and if I’m grading on a curve, it’s that. I wanted a Hostess Cupcake, I got

a Hostess Cupcake. I don’t always want to eat Hostess Cupcakes, in fact mostly I specifically want a better, more complex and flavorful cupcake, but this one time it was satisfying. If you’ve ever thought “I want to watch people in impractical fashion have romantic troubles that I have no stake in or emotional attachment to” this is your movie. It’s nice sometimes to watch a movie and not particularly like the “heroine” or care if her dopey relationship to her dopey love interest (and love interests don’t get dopier than the ones played by Dane DeHaan) works out. Sophia is a daffy character played daffily by Vikander. Maria is a more humanoid person, with something like normal emotions, and Holliday Grainger is fun but she won’t be winning any Oscars either. The lack of a performance of any significance from Waltz is a little surprising, but the

Sophia Sandvoort (Alicia Vikander) was essentially sold to her husband Cornelis Sandvoort (Christoph Waltz). The deal is that she bears for him a few children in exchange for his giving her a comfortable life and the funds to send her younger siblings to an aunt living in New Amsterdam. After three years of marriage, however, all she’s been able to provide is wifely companionship, not the heir and spares he’s been hoping for. To show off the fact that at least he got a pretty young wife out of the deal, Cornelis hires a painter, Jan Van Loos (Dane DeHaan), to paint their portraits. Sophia and Jan have an instant, ridiculous attraction to each other, demonstrated for us by a bunch of hilarious, overheated close-ups. It doesn’t take long for Sophia to find an excuse (involving tulips, of course) to visit Jan and thus their affair begins. Meanwhile, Maria (Holliday Grainger), Sophia’s maid, is having her own sweet romance with Willem Brok (Jack O’Connell), the local fish seller. To raise the money for their marriage, Willem speculates in the tulip market and does well. But a dumb coincidence and some poor choices lead to Willem’s being kidnapped into the navy, and Maria believing he has run off. Worse, she learns he’s disappeared at roughly the same time she realizes she is pregnant. So the married lady wants a baby but can’t seem to have one and the unmarried lady is pregnant but can’t have a baby without
sprinkling of prestige acting comes instead from Judi Dench as an Abbess who raised the orphaned Sophia and is now quite the player in the tulip game. Also showing up in a very high-school-English-assignment-like riff on a Shakespearean comic relief character is Zach Galifianakis. And Matthew Morrison is there, in some interesting facial hair. “Hey, is that that guy from Glee?” is kind of the beginning and end of his character. (Similarly, I thought “hey, it’s the guy from Rome,” which is kind of all Kevin McKidd does here. And no, I do not watch Grey’s Anatomy. Also, Cara Delevingne has a bit part, which made me think of the recent Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and the oddball apparently-junior-high-school-aged soldiers she and DeHaan played. Wonder Woman and that, Baby Driver and The Emoji Movie — it was a weird summer.) Tulip Fever has glints of humor but is not particularly funny. It has a few cutesy moments (mostly between Maria and Willem) but isn’t truly romantic. It’s the kind of movie where you can take a few minutes out to consider somebody’s poofy blue dress (that is a nice color of blue, you might think, could I pull that off?) or the general silliness of the stiff ruffled collars (what does that do for anybody?) and not miss anything or feel like you’ve somehow disrespected the theme and tone of the movie. Tulip Fever is just the right mix of overheated and underbaked to be a medium-speed OK time. It is, enthusiastically, a delightful C. Rated R. Directed by Justin Chadwick with a screenplay by Deborah Moggach (who wrote the novel on which the movie is based) and Tom Stoppard, Tulip Fever is an hour and 47 minutes long and is distributed by The Weinstein Company.

Rock showcase stops in New Hampshire By Michael Witthaus
Local Music Earth gathers bands from seven states for back-to-back all-day shows in two states. The first happens Sept. 15 in Portland, Maine, the second at the Crow’s Nest in Plaistow on Sept. 16. It’s the fourth year for the festival, but its first foray into New Hampshire. Among the acts appearing at Crow’s Nest are Maine-based Sygnal to Noise and Manchester’s A Simple Complex. Respectively, the two won the New England Music Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Band in 2015 and 2016. Also representing the Granite State are gritty rockers Lone Wolf James, while power metal band ShadowLynx hails from Massachusetts. Maine bands 13 High and Devil’s Nite Out also perform. According to show creator and radio host Justin Sane, the concert bill showcases a diverse mix of styles. “It’s not metal earth or rock earth,” he said in a recent phone interview. “It’s local music — we’re trying to expand everyone’s horizon, to see something new. It’s blending it all together, and bringing the scene together too.” This means the bullhorn vocals and machine gun riffs of Pennsylvania metal band Threatpoint will coexist with the New Jersey’s Shadowplay, a politically charged blend of Rage Against the Machine Local Music Earth 4 When: Saturday, Sept. 16, 4 p.m. Where: Crow’s Nest Pub & Grill, 181 Plaistow Road, Plaistow Tickets: $8 /$10 door at gcelme.ticketleap.com Performing: A Simple Complex, Lone Wolf James, ShadowLynx, Sygnal To Noise, 13 High, Devil’s Nite Out, Deathcode, Modern Day Outlaw, Threatpoint and Shadowplay

and Jimi Hendrix Experience. Connecticut grunge thrashers Deathcode smolder moodily, a world apart from the Skynyrd meets Alice In Chains intensity of Florida’s Modern Day Outlaw. What the acts share in common is showmanship. “We try to get the ones that are performers,” Sane said. “Like A Simple Complex —Mark Ingoldsby flies through the air, runs through the crowd, stands on the bar, it’s crazy. Even if you’re not into that kind of music, you’ll like the show. With Sygnal to Noise, you look at them and think they’re a Slipknot cover band, then they start playing and you go, ‘Whoa, this is a melodic rock band.’” The effort grew out of Sane’s independent Granite Coast Entertainment radio show. He’ll be broadcasting during the shows as will hosts from Boston Rock Radio and Digital Revolution Radio. Shawn Jeffrey of Rock Rage Radio will emcee the event. Even though his livelihood comes from playing records, Sane recognizes that the money’s in live music. He decided to do a New Hampshire version of his event after watching the growing practice of show swapping: “Hey, your band
can play in my town, and we’ll play yours. ... It actually supports the scene a lot more,” he said. “In the digital age, the live show is where it’s at. ... Live Nation is the big dog now; it’s not record companies anymore.” The move to the Granite State also reflects an awareness of a growing scene, helped by his involvement with NEMA. “It’s opened my eyes to a lot of different music,” he said of the awards show, now six years old. “Also, it’s become a big networking party — you have venue owners, booking agents, promoters, print editors, radio editors, everything.” The connections came in handy when the original Local Music Earth venue canceled barely a month before the show. “I was talking to one of the local bands and they said, there’s this place,” Sane said. “I was actually thinking we were going to have to cut out the whole second day [because] all the venues are booking for November and December.” He connected with Crow’s Nest owners Crow and Cochise Kasabian-Judd, and learned that they not only knew about his event, they had planned to attend. “The whole thing of them noticing everything that we do and believing in it, being a presenter at NEMA and broadcasting from there, the other Local Music Earth events that we’d done — it all came together,” Sane said. “As I was planning to cancel the whole thing, it actually grew.” With everything lined up, all that’s left is finding a sequence for the show’s acts. “That’s my biggest challenge, because six of the bands are headliners,” Sane said. “I have talked with them and said, ‘’Look, I’m not saying you have an ego, but everybody is going to put that aside.’ So figuring out the order is the toughest part, but everyone is pretty compliant and satisfied with whatever we came up with. Because everyone is in it for the exact same thing.”

When Louise Kennedy, an equine veterinarian from Ireland who has worked in Australia for the past two years on a skilled worker visa, decided to stay in the country, she had to take the Pearson Test of English as part of her requirements for permanent residency. Imagine her surprise when, as a native English speaker with two university degrees, she flunked the oral component of the computer-based test. “There’s obviously a flaw in their computer software when a person with perfect oral fluency cannot get enough points,” Kennedy said. For its part, Pearson has denied that there is any problem with its test or scoring “engine.” Kennedy will pursue a spouse visa so she can remain with her Australian husband.
United States Border Patrol agent Robert Rocheleau and Alburgh, Vermont, resident Mark Johnson, 53, exchanged tense words on Aug. 3 when Johnson climbed down from his tractor and demanded to know why Rocheleau wasn’t doing more to apprehend illegal immigrants. Johnson said people working in the U.S. illegally were damaging his livelihood. (Alburgh is just south of the border with Canada.) After the exchange, Johnson got back in his tractor and, as Rocheleau reported, “While passing by my vehicle Mr. Johnson ... engaged the PTO shaft to his trailer and covered my vehicle in cow manure.” Mr. Johnson pleaded not guilty in Vermont Superior Court in North Hero, saying he didn’t know the car was nearby when he turned on his manure spreader.

The Ford Motor Co. has hired smell-testers for its research labs in China, where consumers don’t like the “new-car” smell that many Americans seek out. Ford calls the testers its “golden noses,” who sniff materials such as upholstery, steering wheels and carpet. Testers are subjected to a stringent selection process and must not smoke or drink alcohol. “In North America,” said Andy Pan, supervisor for material engineering at a Ford facility in China, “people want a new-car smell and will even buy a ‘new-car’ spray to make older cars feel new and fresh. In China, it’s the opposite.”

On June 25, Doug Bergeson of Peshtigo, Wisconsin, was framing the fireplace of a home he was building when his nail gun slipped from his grasp and shot a 3 1/2-inch nail into his heart. Bergeson said it stung, but when he saw the nail “moving with my heart,” he realized he wasn’t going to get any more work done. So he washed up and drove himself to the hospital 12 miles away, where he alerted a security guard that he had a nail
