I started telling my story right after I moved to the States as a healing process and therapy. Eighteen years later I am still telling the same story. My hope, of course, was that while I was telling my story, things would get better in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and that the tragic war-torn story of Congolese people, like my own Congo story, would become past tense. My hope was not realized. The atrocities in the Congo continued, which made the urgency of shining a light on it all the more crucial. In the last few weeks some mainstream media have covered some of the atrocities, protests and censorship that are happening today in the Congo. The term of the current president, Joseph Kabila, ended in December 2016, but he has not stepped down. The Democratic Republic of the Congo has a long history of exploiting and mistreating its own people, many of whom are killed and driven out of the country. According to the UN, 6 million people have died there from war-related causes since 1996. The country is blessed and cursed with an abundance of natural resources, including coltan, uranium, diamond, cobalt, copper, gold and zinc. More than 60 percent of the world’s coltan comes from the Congo. This is where the American connection comes in. Coltan is the raw material that goes into making the computer chips and LCD screens in our televisions, iPhones, PlayStations and satellites. Many western governments and corporations have played a role in the outcome of Congolese conflicts in order to secure their interests and exploit its natural resources. Congolese refugees are amongst the largest groups of displaced people in the world. The U.S. government made a commitment back in 2014 to resettle 50,000 Congolese. The few that have had a chance to resettle in America are working hard earning a living to provide a better future for their family here in America and back home. We must bring awareness to the U.S. Congressmen and Congresswomen who are sometimes manipulated by lobbying organizations advocating for their clients. Companies you buy your electronics from depend on the raw materials extracted from the mines of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is time to rise up and advocate for the lives of those who are caught in this destructive cycle, which has been going on for the last 25 years. We need to pressure our government to be on the side of humanity in order to end the worst genocide and holocaust of our time. A daring escape from the Congo led Deo Mwano to a life in Manchester.

NEWS & NOTES Foley’s killers caught

The two remaining members of the four-man ISIS cell who tortured and murdered journalists and others on video, including New Hampshire journalist James Foley, have been captured in Syria and are being held by U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces. The cell was nicknamed “The Beatles” because of their distinct British accents. The two recently captured were those believed to be the “George” and “Ringo” of the group, El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Amon Kotey, who both grew up in London, the AP reported. The man who was seen speaking in videos and beheading Foley and others with a knife was Mohammed Emwazi (“John”). He was killed in a U.S. drone strike in November 2015. And the fourth member, Aine Lesley Davis (“Paul”), was captured in Turkey the same month. Speaking with WMUR, Foley’s father, John Foley, said he hopes the recently captured men are put on trial and sentenced to life in prison. The death penalty would make them martyrs, Foley said, according to the story.

Chief justice

In a press release, Gov. Chris Sununu announced the nomination of Justice Robert J. Lynn of Windham to be the next chief justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court. Lynn has served as an associate justice for the past seven years. “His immense experience makes him the perfect person to lead the Judicial Branch during this time of extraordinary change and transition,” Sununu said in a statement. Before his appointment

to the Supreme Court by Gov. John Lynch, Lynn served as the chief justice of the Superior Court from 2004 to 2010.

Conversion therapy

The House passed a bill that would ban the use of conversion therapy, the practice of attempting to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity, on minors. In a statement by Democratic Rep. Ed Butler of Hart’s Location, he said the bill will protect countless children. “Conversion therapy is a harmful and damaging practice which attempts to shame young people into changing their sexual orientation or identity,” Butler said. The bill enjoys bipartisan support. It goes to the Senate next and Gov. Chris Sununu said he would sign it.

Family leave

A bill that would create a medical family leave program funded by a small percentage of garnished wages only from those who opt in to the program passed the House 186-164, according to a press release. The voluntary contribution amounts to two-thirds of a percent of the participant’s wages. They would be eligible for 60 percent of their pay after a birth or adoption or serious illness. The bill was amended to provide six weeks of leave, rather than the 12 weeks afforded in the original version.

ARMI bill

Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley urged support for a bill that would provide a tax incentive and workforce development program for a burgeoning regenerative tissue manufacturing industry in the state. According to a press

A proposal to install a 54-acre solar farm in Concord was tabled by the city zoning board, the Concord Monitor reported. The proposal stalled over a disagreement about whether the panels counted as impervious surfaces, which would require the project to obtain a variance. NextEra Energy Resources argued the panels are not impervious because water can still reach the meadow ground below the panels.

release, Bradley wants to provide the incentives to ensure the businesses involved in the new Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI), which is being established in Manchester with an $80 million Department of Defense grant, choose to locate in the state. “New businesses will need to be founded to support this emerging industry. It is not a question of when or if these businesses will be created but of where they will be located. The answer we want is in New Hampshire,” Bradley said.


The town of Pembroke recently held a public hearing on proposed cuts to the school’s budget for next year. The Hooksett Concord Monitor reported the hearing was packed with residents, many in favor of the proposal, but most against Goffstown it. A $1 million budget shortfall caused taxes to spike. The plan would cut six teachers and 10 other employees.

Diversity council

The recently formed Council on Diversity and Inclusion held its first meeting Feb. 8. NHPR reported the first meeting was taken up mostly by figuring out the logistics for listening sessions that are planned to take place at universities and community colleges. One of the goals of the council is to make recommendations on how to change the state’s laws and policies so as to advance equity in the state. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 22, according to the story.

The school board in Dunbarton is presenting a plan to fund a $2.2 Bedford million facilities upgrade to expand its elementary school capacity, the ConAmherst cord Monitor reported. Board members say it will Milford be cheaper to do it all at once because interest rates are low right now but construction costs have high inflation rates.

ing using ride-sharing pro-

gram Lyft to bring people Londonderry

to treatment in nonemergency cases, NHPR reported. First responders say it saves city resourcNASH NASHUA es. The company recently received a $10,000 grant to help fund the Lyft rides.


A bill that would annul convictions for possessing small amounts of marijuana passed the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee 14-4, NHPR reported. According to the story, the sponsor of the bill, Rep. Renny Cushing, said no one testified against the bill during a recent public hearing. A new law took effect in September decriminalizing possession of three-quarters of an ounce of cannabis. The bill that recently received the recommendation of the committee would enable anyone with a past conviction for that amount or less to petition the court to annul their charges.

A Southern New Hampshire University professor was let go after she marked sections of an assignment completed by a student with zero points because the professor believed Australia wasn’t a country. Buzzfeed reported the student, Ashley Arnold, 27, of Idaho was tasked with comparing American social norms to that of another country; she chose Australia. The professor claimed she didn’t follow instructions because Australia is a continent, not a country. It is both. WMUR reported university officials conducted an investigation and replaced the professor.

Dan Forbes, the director of the Meelia Center for Community Engagement at Saint Anselm, which organizes the Access Academy program, said the money from the latest grant has made it possible to fund the creation of new programs and pay the stipends for the faculty and student teachers who design and deliver the courses. “The big shift happened this year when we received a fairly substantial National Endowment for the Humanities Grant,” Forbes said. He said it takes about $8,000 to create a new course, and less than that to deliver it. In total the program now offers 10 courses at the campus, plus an 11th course, Public Speaking, taught at the Sununu Youth Services Center. More than 15 courses will be created over the next three years with the NEH funds. Plus, they are applying for more grants from the National Science Foundation to beef up their STEM class offerings. There are about 90 students signed up for the semester, which started Jan. 30. Hannah Morley, the program coordinator for Meelia programs, said there is no formal selection process, but they work with extended learning opportunity coordinators

in the schools to identify kids who qualify and get them to fill out applications. “Another evolution is we do now serve all four high schools in Manchester. We bus them from school to campus [after school]. They attend the classes, then we bring them all together and then feed them [and] send them home,” Forbes said. The courses are held every Monday and Tuesday. Monday courses include Career and College Exploration, Computer Literacy, Environmental Studies, SAT prep and a class about iconic photographs from history. Every Tuesday, students can choose from a College Admissions class, a Human Rights class, Illustration, Storytelling and French Food and Literature. Some of the courses are for any high school grade, while the more college-prep classes are for higher grade levels. In previous semesters, college students and faculty would co-teach. But some of those same students have begun to teach on their own. And some of the new course offerings have been made possible by faculty members who are interested in helping out, such as in the case of the new SAT prep course. Also starting this year is a program that brings Access resources into the high schools. So far, that means some of the college students helping out high school students with writing their college essays, FAFSA applications and so forth. “If that is a bigger piece of what we do in the future, that could be a game-changer as well,” Forbes said. They’ve also begun some outreach efforts to get middle school students interested in the program. The did this last fall, when they bused in middle schoolers to watch end-of-

Getting the memo

By Ryan Lessard


Sen. Andy Sanborn, a Republican from Bedford, has drafted an amendment that would clarify the definition of compounding prescription drugs in the hopes of carving out an exception for infusion medications that were bunched in with new, strict safety regulations. As written, Sanborn said, the Board of Pharmacy rules, which came out in 2016, make New Hampshire an “outlier” compared to any other state. They were written in reaction to the fungal meningitis outbreak in 2012 that originated from a drug compounding facility in Framingham, Massachusetts. Hundreds were sickened and more than 70 died from the infections. In an effort to prevent such things from happening in New Hampshire, Sanborn said, the board cast a wide net by requiring stringent safety equipment not just for the compounding of drugs, but also for the reconstituting of single powder drugs with saline solution to be used in IVs, infusions or injections. Therein lies the rub. According to Sanborn, the requirements are a step backward in efforts to reduce costs over the past 20 years, as providers have moved more toward an out-of-hospital or in-home model when it comes to regular infusion medications. An example of this is the drug Remicade, which is administered for a number of ailments including Crohn’s disease. “Because of the expense of the drug, you could only get an infusion in a hospital setting. And, in general, the cost of a single infusion, which you need to get about every six to eight weeks … is $18,000 to $25,000 semester presentations by Access students. The hope is that these kids will grow excited about the possibility of going to college and maybe participating in Access Academy themselves in the future.


The program began with 20 students from just West High School and Central High School in 2010 with small grants (under $10,000) from New Hampshire

After the board changed the rules, however, nobody seemed to have gotten the memo, according to Sanborn. “So they wrote everybody up, fined them all and issued them cease and desist letters,” Sanborn said. This happened in early November last year. Mike Bullek, administrator and chief of compliance on the Board of Pharmacy, said they investigated eight different sites in the state for not following the new rules. Bullek said the board supports Sanborn’s efforts to redefine compounding, but he hopes the language still ensures the practice of reconstitution follows some basic cleanliness guidelines like using sterile gloves and wiping containers with alcohol. “You want to be able to help the patient out on the cost end of things, but you also want to make sure it is mixed in an aseptic manner,” Bullek said. He also said the board used national guidelines as a template when they wrote the rules but those standards have since eased up. While he appreciates the need for safety when it comes to compound drugs, Sanborn thinks reconstituted infusions should not fall under that category. For one thing, the company in Framingham that caused the multi-state outbreak six years ago did not follow existing safety protocols, he said, and the infusion drugs are much safer. Remicade, for example, has zero recorded adverse events, despite there being 150 million doses sold worldwide. The amendment was attached to an unrelated bill, but the bill moved forward without the amendment. Sanborn said he plans to attach it to a different bill in the next couple of weeks. Humanities and some additional donations from Rich Meelia, a philanthropist and the Meelia Center’s namesake. The initial grants targeted new Americans so the program was offered primarily to immigrant and refugee children. It has since expanded to other underrepresented populations facing barriers to higher education such as low-income kids and first-generation prospective college students.

Model maker

Retired vet shares his love of paper models Dick Zoerb, 87, of Nashua has been making models — airplanes, landmarks, the Titanic — off and on since he was a child during WWII. Now, he shares his love of model making with other senior citizens. His next presentation is scheduled for March 14 at the Veterans Home in Tilton, weather and resident health permitting. Can you tell us about your background? I was born November 27th of 1930 in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, which is a city of about 50,000 on the east bank of the Mississippi River in southwestern Wisconsin. It happened to be Thanksgiving. The family joke has always been that on that particular day my mother had two turkeys. … The family business, which had been going since 1908, was a floral business, greenhouses, in which we had a couple acres of glass-covered greenhouses. And we grew floral crops — cut flowers, potted plants. It’s still going under the leadership of the fourth generation at the present time, so I guess that would make it 110 years old. … One of the first jobs I had … was pulling weeds out from under the tables upon which these crops were growing. And I was paid the exorbitant wage of 10 cents an hour. And that eventually financed my first foray into model building. How did you first get into model making? With those 10 cents I earned pulling weeds, combining that with a box top from a Wheaties … I would send in — and this was in the early days of World War II — for the box top and 10 cents, I would receive three paper pages of paper models, all depicting World War II fighter planes from five or six different countries on both sides of the battle. I did that for quite a while. … Most of them, when I put them together — and they probably had an 8-inch wingspan — the wings could be twisted, the control surfaces could be twisted so they could be thrown and they might glide for 20 or 30 feet. Most of them ended up, and particularly those from Germany and Japan, with their noses lit afire, and of course, they always crashed under those circumstances. … There was a long period of time when I had to put model-making aside. Four years of college and two years in the Army during the Korean War, and of course my career at the family business went on for about 35 years, during which time my wife and I raised a family. WHAT ARE YOU REALLY INTERESTED IN RIGHT NOW?


I have 10 grandchildren and soon-tobe three great-grandchildren [who] have kept us busy. … We also have a small motorhome that’s been on every corner of the United States as well as Newfoundland.

Courtesy photo.

Then we moved to New Hampshire in 1987. I left the family business and became a salesman in the same type of industry.

When was the moment you rediscovered the paper models? I got involved in actually building [radio controlled planes] but I never learned to really fly them. Somebody else had to fly them. I built four of them and two of them unfortunately crashed on their maiden voyage. … Then, I would say about six years ago, I was looking through some old schoolwork in a box that I had saved actually from junior high school. At the bottom of this box were these planes from the World War II fighter planes. … I was quite thrilled to find some of these 65-year-old planes. Each model came on two sheets of roughly 8x10 paper. … So, for old time’s sake, I built a couple of those and I think I might have sold the plans to a few people who knew about them. … And one of the buyers told me about a website called fiddlersgreen[.net]. … This website is a source of plans for paper models of all kinds. … I’ve probably built between 150 and 200 models over the last five years. You now share your love of model-making with public presentations, such as the one planned at the Veterans Home. What is the purpose of sharing this? Do you see model-making as a cure for boredom, a form of therapy or a dying art form? I don’t think it’s a dying art form at all, but I think it’s all the things that you suggested. It can be therapy, it can be filling the long hours of someone who has retired and has never developed a hobby before because they were too busy earning a living, and once a person retires and helps his spouse alphabetize their spice cabinets and there’s nothing else to do, they can get into model building. It does take a steady hand. … I think the biggest reward I get is to take something that’s on paper and make a threedimensional model out of it. Some might take a few hours, and others, like the Titanic, probably took me a few weeks or more. So, it’s therapy for me, in that respect, in the feeling of accomplishing something. — Ryan Lessard


QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Famed sculptor’s works on display The Currier Museum of Art unveiled an exhibition of 19th- and 20th-century American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ works on Saturday. It’s the first major exhibition of his works in New England in more than 30 years, the Union Leader reported. It includes largescale masterpieces such as “Abraham Lincoln: The Man,” “The Adams Memorial” and “Diana.” It will be on view through May 20. QOL Score: +1 Comment: Saint-Gaudens maintained a studio in Cornish for much of his life and was the founding artist of the Cornish Colony. His New Hampshire home and studios are now managed by the National Park Service.

Norovirus hits veterans home Several cases of norovirus have been confirmed at the New Hampshire Veterans Home in Tilton, according to a press release. At the direction of the New Hampshire Division of Public Health Services, visits by family, friends and service organizations are suspended to prevent the virus from spreading among the 200 older residents of the home. Visits to severely ill residents and those in hospice care will be considered on a case-by-case basis. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The highly contagious virus causes vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain and headaches.

Federal opioid funding The state’s congressional delegation applauded the inclusion of $6 billion in additional funding to address the opioid epidemic nationwide in the bipartisan budget agreement reached by senators last week, according to a press release. The agreement provides $3 billion each year. It’s not yet clear how much of that New Hampshire will receive, but Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan received assurances that the formula would be “improved to prioritize states like New Hampshire with high mortality rates from overdoses.” QOL Score: +1 Comment: Shaheen and Hassan have been participating in bipartisan negotiations as part of the so-called Common Sense Caucus.

Locally Owned and Operated Since 1987

The NBA All-Star break arrives in the nick of time for your Boston Celtics. It was a mostly solid first half, especially in light of the season-ending injury to Gordon Hayward five minutes into the year. But after they won just six of 14 since returning from London, some of the luster has been taken off what was mostly a spunky and enjoyable first half. So it’s obvious they need a break to decompress, and for Brad Stevens to figure out how to get them back on track. In the meantime here’s my annual All-Star break first half assessment. The Gordon Hayward Injury: Many gave up on the season about five seconds after his injury. I said it wasn’t over but expectations should be lowered to 45 to 47 wins. But it looks like they could win 10 more than that. The Highlight: The stunning 16-game win streak that started after losing the first two games while in a trance following Hayward’s stunning injury. It propelled them to the top spot in the east, where they stayed until this week. Biggest Surprises: (1) Jayson Tatum — I knew he’d be better than Jae Crowder next year, but he already is. Not every night, but his best game is much better than Crowder’s. (2) Jaylen Brown — He was 19-7 starting when Avery Bradley was injured last year. From Original But he’s Manchester’s improving daily, unafraid of the Auto Glass Company moment, and his three-point shooting has dramatically improved. He’s going to be really good. (3) Marcus Morris — better than I knew. He plays multiple defense positions effectively, hits threes and has brought a needed feisty edge. (4) I’ve never seen any seven-footer miss as many three-foot-and-in shots as Aron Baynes — ever. Kyrie Irving Trade: I’ve got issues with Kyrie diddling too much with the ball, especially when surrounded in the key, which

leads to turnovers and bad shots. And he’s not having the offensive year Isaiah Thomas did last year. But he’s been mostly terrific and given it the college try on D — which is an improvement over IT. So with the Nets pick looking lower than expected, while Thomas and Crowder are already traded again, this is another major win for Danny. The GM: Much has been made of the Brooklyn heist, but two deals he made with Memphis since are looking like robberies too. First he miraculously got a first-round pick for the infuriatingly inconsistent Jeff Green to be used between 2019 and 2021 when it’s lottery protected to 8, then 6 and totally unprotected in 2021. Then on 2016 draft night he sent the Grizzlies the 32nd overall pick who to select Michigan State’s Deyonta Davis for the L.A. Clippers 2019 pick that Memphis owned. When the deals were made both were 50-plus-win teams. But they’re now cratering and headed for rebuilds, making those picks increasing in value by the day. If he’s not the best in sports, he’s in the top few. The Bench: (1) They need a guy who can consistently hit threes, which hopefully can be found in the buyout market. (2) While I really like what both Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier bring to the team, they duplicate each other — high energy, defense, toughness and inconsistent shooting. I expect only one will survive the quest to find a long-range shooter this summer. Rozier leads that battle today, because while streaky, his shooting is vastly improved and Smart’s hasn’t. (3) When they got Daniel Theis (pronounced “Tice”) I thought, big deal, another soft Euro import. But he plays hard, hustles and fights on D to get his hands on loose balls and keeps rebounds alive. In short, I like Theis. (4) Scoring on the block and rebounding, which Greg Monroe provides, was needed. Time will tell whether he delivers. The Coach: Seeing Crowder, Isaiah and Bradley already re-traded after not fitting in with Detroit and Cleveland points to an under-appreciated benefit of Brad Stevens.

It’s that almost players exceed their talent level playing here, which raises their trade value. It started with the busted in Washington Jordan Crawford playing well enough in Stevens’ first season to let Danny sell high to (kinda) get a No. 1 pick for him from Golden State — where he busted again. Issues to Fix: I’m the lone wolf in howling they need better shot selection, but they do. While having far better shooting accuracy and range over 2016-17, they still fall behind by double digits quite often. That’s because when the threes aren’t falling, they keep chucking it up — even those who shouldn’t, like Smart (29 percent), Semi Ojeleye (29 percent) and Theis (31 percent) — rather than taking it to the basket to get fouled. That creates long scoring droughts, which I guarantee will be an issue against good teams in the playoffs. Latest Trend: With 20-point beatdowns by Toronto and Cleveland, sandwiched around Friday’s loss to Indiana featuring what likely was the worst half of basketball ever played on this planet at least, it was an alarming week. The latter was filled with a series of beyond belief bad passes, horrendous ball handling, awful shooting, terrible rebounding, atrocious defense that gave up the base line an astonishing six times, capped by seven-footer Aron Baynes actually taking a catch-andshoot three with 16 still on the clock. Either it’s the wall, or they were fried. Bottom Line: Turns out the grittiness of last year’s club didn’t leave the building with the 11 players from last year’s 53-win club who did. Which has to be a testament to a job well done by the guy who picks the groceries and the one who cooks the dinner, as along with retaining the 2016-17 competitive fight the Celtics are a lot more talented, athletic and deeper now. And with their three back court/ wing players all at least three inches taller than the departed they’re a lot longer as well. Not sure when/if the current malaise ends, but overall the future is bright. They get a B+. Email

Manch ends Bedford streak Bragging Rights Game of the Week: It goes to the 9-3 Memorial basketball team for ending Bedford’s 10-game winning streak on the road in B-town Friday night. The Crusaders turned a close affair after three periods into a 10-point game with nine straight points to start the fourth to lead at 57-47. But after three-balls from Nick Mokas and Connor Crowley, Bedford (10-3) had it down to 63-60 with 53 seconds left. Memorial staved off the comeback, though, with seven free throws in the final minute for the 70-65 final. Manny Alisandro led Memorial with 20 points, while Max Chartier (20) and Nolan Anderson (17) had a combined 37 for Bedford. Sports 101: Only four people in baseball history have won an MVP Award and been named manager of the year — name them. Double Knick of Tyme Award: To Derryfield’s Jeff Pratt for draining the gamewinning shot as time ran out in a 41-39 win over Farmington in NHIAA basketball action. It’s doubled for the degree of difficulty, as it came off an inbounds play with 0.8 left, and because it kept the 14-0 Cougars’ hopes of an undefeated season alive.

The Numbers

1 – goal scored in each period by Anthony Dizillo for a hat trick in leading the Trinity hockey team to its sixth win against six losses in a 6-3 Pioneers win over Nashua South/Pelham. 7 – new inductees into the St. Anselm College Athletic Hall of Fame including basketball stalwarts John O’Connell (’96), Todd Manuel (’02) and Kath-

cook is searching for a head varsity football coach and head girls varsity soccer coach. Check the school’s website for the details. Sports Quote from the Entertainment Industry of the Week: From Jimmy Kimmel after Massachusetts-born Grey’s Anatomy star and Patriots-loving actress Ellen Pompeo mentioned her son’s name was Eli, to which Kimmel said, “It’s a little weird for a Patriots fan to name their kid Eli, isn’t it?” Sports 101 Answer: The four dual MVP and Manager of the Year winners are Joe Torre, Don Baylor, Frank Robinson and Kirk Gibson. On This Date – Feb. 15 in 1966: A year after turning a 3-13 team into an 11-5 playoff team in three years on the job, Bill Belichick is fired by the Cleveland Browns. He took the fall for internal chaos and widespread fan outrage after word leaked out that owner Art Modell was moving his team to Baltimore for a free stadium deal. It led the Browns to lose six of their last seven to finish a 5-4 start. The 5-11 season left Belichick 36-44 overall with Cleveland. Ironically, Ted Marchibroda, who gave Belichick his first NFL job, with the Colts in Baltimore, replaces him.

leen Shippee, who all led Hawks hoop teams into the post season, along with Cindy Lebel Tipping (hockey), Jocelyn (Savastano) Aguilar, Geoff Raby (football) and Jason Karalexis (soccer). 43 – points scored by Kyler Bosse this week in back-to-back wins by the Central hoopsters over Bishop Guertin (45-33) and Concord (65-44).

27 – point margin of victory for the Memorial hoopsters in a 61-34 win over Spaulding when Haleigh Shea had a game-high 14 points and Jennessa Brunette chipped in with 10 more. 52 – combined points from the SNHU duo of Chris Walters and Daquise Andrews in a big 89-74 win for the struggling Penmen hoopsters over Bentley at the start of the week.

Sports Glossary

Eli: First name of Patriot-killing G-Man quarterback nemesis Eli Manning. Jeff Green: The Celtics gift that keeps on giving after directly or indirectly being involved in Celtics moves that yielded Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Big Baby Davis and two still to be used first-round picks. How? First, after being taken sixth he was the key piece in a 2007 draft night deal for Allen and Big Baby. That convinced KG to come, leading to a great six-year run and title 17. Then, after coming back for Kendrick Perkins, he was flipped to Memphis for a first-round pick for use between 2019 and 2021. Memphis subsequently flipped Green for the Clippers’ 2019 first round. The Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace sent that pick to Boston for the 32nd overall pick in 2016 to get Michigan State’s Deyonta Davis. Deyonta Davis: Freshmen-eligible seven-footer with career averages of 3.1 points and 2.6 rebounds for Memphis. Jordan Crawford: Averaged 11.7 per in 57 Celtics games. Traded to Golden State in a confusing three-team deal that started with their getting Joel Anthony and Miami’s firstround pick that somehow became three seconds, with one being flipped to Memphis to take Deyonta Davis. He fizzled in GS, leading him to become Euro-hoops refugee. I Like Theis: Cleverly aped phrase from the “I Like Ike” campaign slogan used by Dwight Eisenhower when he ran for president in 1952. They chose it both for the cool rhyme and because everyone did after defeating Hitler in WWII.

Vanya and Sonia comes to Concord By Angie Sykeny

For their 90th anniversary season, the Community Players of Concord have set out to produce highly acclaimed shows that are new to the world of community theater. Their latest, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, opens Friday, Feb. 16, at the Concord City Auditorium. A comedy written by Christopher Durang, Vanya and Sonia premiered in 2012 and landed on Broadway in 2013. It centers on three middle-aged siblings, Vanya and Sonia, who have spent their lives taking care of their parents, now deceased, at their family home in Pennsylvania, and their movie star sister Marsha, who owns the home and has supported the family financially. Conflicts arise when The Community Players of Concord present Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Courtesy photo Marsha returns home, accompanied by her newest significantly younger lover, Spike, and threatens to sell the house. fill, good casting is critical, he said, which is Director Jim Webber said the show is “a why he spent weeks holding auditions and Vanya and Sonia and Masha and very modern comedy,” filled with topical ref- reaching out to actors until he found the ones Spike erences and contemporary issues. best suited for those roles.

was very important for this play.” Steve Lajoie was cast as Vanya, alongside his wife Kim Lajoie, who is playing Sonia. What he appreciates about the play, he said, is the authenticity of its characters, particularly of his own character, who is a gay man. “Vanya has so many different parts to his personality. It’s been a fun challenge for me to be able to play a gay character without him being some kind of caricature,” Lajoie said. “It’s not just pure comedy. The characters are real people and are really complex. Each character has a moment in the show that makes them who they are.” Webber, who is also designing the set for the show, decided to keep it simple to steer the focus toward the characters. Most of the scenes take place with the characters talking outside on the porch of the rural country farmhouse. “It’s a very naturalistic play. It doesn’t lend itself much to experimentation,” Webber said. “Rather than filling the stage with everything, I kept it to just the basic essentials and things that will make a point.” Lajoie said the genius of the play lies in its witty yet true-to-life dialogue, which is the playwright’s specialty. “Christopher Durang has an amazing ear for the way people really talk. That’s what he’s known for,” he said. “It definitely comes through in the script. It’s clever, funny and very touching.”

Older kids and adults can unleash their competitive spirit at Battle Games in Hooksett, a new indoor activity center offering Archery Tag for ages 10 and up and a Nerf Zone for ages 7 to 13. “We thought it’d be nice to have something that accommodates kids and adults and that’s outside of going to a bar, but more athletic and less logical than the escape rooms,” said owner Andrew Provencher, who opened Granite State Escape in Manchester two years ago with his wife Pamela. “We looked around at different trends and found Archery Tag and thought it would make a great addition to New Hampshire.” Archery Tag players wear a protective face mask and wield an easy-to-shoot bow — much easier than the standard bows used for archery — with which they shoot marshmallow-like foam-tipped arrows at their opponents. “Anyone, from a child to someBattle Games Location: 7B Eastpoint Drive, Hooksett Hours: Thursday and Friday, 4:30 to 9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Book a one-hour block online; walk-ins are also accepted if there are slots free.

up, and there may be two to 10 players, depending on how many people book the hour. You’ll likely be playing with strangers unless you come with a party of 10 or book all 10 slots to make it a private session. At the beginning of each block, there’s a brief training period during which players introduce themselves and are taught how to play the game and use the equipment. “As people experience the game together, they get more comfortable with each other,” Provencher said, “but it’s also very individual-centric, so you can do your own thing to be successful for your team without as much communication as you would need for something like an escape room.” Kids ages 7 to 13 can book an hour in the Nerf Zone, where they can shoot foam weaponry amid fun obstacles and even build their own forts. Battle Games staff coordinate fun games like “capture the flag,” “team attack” and “every kid for himself.” A rental Nerf weapon is included in the cost, or players can bring their own. Additionally, Battle Games has an event room for birthday parties and corporate events. Once Battle Games becomes more established, Provencher said, he plans to introduce Archery Tag league play and regular tournaments with cash prizes. “We’d love to provide an atmosphere where adults can get a great workout that isn’t picking up weights at the gym, and have fun playing a competitive, athletic sport,” he said.

We’re coming down the home stretch. Winter is more than half gone. It’s time to think about ordering seeds, if you haven’t yet. I know that many great gardeners just don’t bother starting seedlings indoors. They say it takes too much time and effort. And nowadays, there are great nurseries in most areas that produce all kinds of fine heirloom tomatoes and crunchy red lettuces. But I love to pamper my little tomato seedlings under lights, watering and fussing over them every day. It helps me stay sane. Of course it’s still too early for most things. I love ordering specialty seeds and trying new things each year and look forward to the catalogs. Many of the seed companies are now depending on our ability to choose seeds and order them online. I love the old fashioned seed catalogs, catalogs I can hold in my hand and study at my leisure. I recently got a catalog from Seeds of Italy, an importer in Nebraska. Dan Nagengast, the co-owner, worked in West Africa with me decades ago so I decided to give him a call to talk seeds. What are some of his best tasting tomatoes? He says his most popular tomato is one called Red Pear. Unlike American pear tomatoes, this is a big one: 8 to 18 ounces. Great flavor, and meaty with few seeds. Another tomato I am ordering from Seeds of Italy is an old French one called Marmande. It’s said to have good fruit set even in cool weather, and is described as “semi-determinate.” Determinate tomato plants grow to a certain size, set fruit, and stop growing. Indeterminate tomatoes keep growing until frost or disease kills them. But semi-determinate? I’ll grow these and find out just what they do. Dan said another favorite is St. Pierre, an indeterminate heirloom with great flavor. As you go through your catalogs or read them online, you might be confused by the term heirloom. Heirloom means that the plant stays true to its characteristics year after year. They breed true, so you can save seeds. Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds is the biggest heirloom seed producer in America, offering some 1,800 heirloom varieties. They have more weird veggies than you can shake a stick at! Hybrid tomatoes, in contrast, result from crossing two different varieties of tomatoes. The first generation after crossing them yields a plant that has characteristics of both parents and is generally superior to both. If you save seeds, you’ll get progeny that are like the original parents as well as some of the hybrid you wanted. But you can’t tell what the seedlings will produce, so it’s not recommended. Another seed company I like is Hudson Valley Seed Co. Co-owner Ken Greene

Heirloom tomatoes.

started it as a seed library, a service offered to library patrons in Gardiner, N.Y. Library members could get free heirloom seeds, grow plants, save seeds and then pay back the library with seeds they saved. Obviously, an important education component was part of the process as many plants will hybridize on their own unless spaced appropriately. No longer a seed library, Hudson Valley Seed Co. is certified organic. When Ken Greene came to my part of the world this winter, I bought a few seeds including one for cold-weather watermelons that originally came from Russia. Watermelons are not usually a big success in New Hampshire, so it will be good to see what they will produce. Johnny’s Selected Seeds of Winslow, Maine, is one of my favorites. They are the go-to company for many farmers around the country because their seeds are always top quality, and they have just about every type of seed one could want. Home gardeners can benefit from the extensive cultural information they provide on their website or in their catalog. Unlike some seed companies, Johnny’s does research and development at their home base in Maine. Obviously they have growers who produce much of their seed, but I am confident that their seeds are good for my climate, not somewhere down south. It is also an employee-owned business. The sell both organic and conventional seed. You may wonder about the advantages of buying organic seed. Yes, it costs a little more, but by buying organic seed you are supporting farmers who treat the soil and environment with care and respect. If you are an organic gardener, you probably will want organic seeds because the mother plants have survived and thrived without chemicals. High Mowing Seed Co. of Vermont only sells organic seeds. Renee’s Garden Seeds is another one of my favorite seed companies, with many organic seeds. Lastly, check out the Seed Savers Exchange. This is a non-profit that since 1975 has been collecting, saving and selling heirloom seeds.

Dear Donna, I was told that Picasso left the plate to his second wife, of which she had 500 lithographs made, and this is one. Please note picture of water relief in paper. The image is approximately 24 inches by 30 inches. Brandon from Concord

We will create a dental experience that you will enjoy! Call us today



Dear Brandon, First, I think in order to confirm the story of the ex-wife, you would have to have something written referring to that fact — not that I think it would really matter in this case of it not being an original but a lithograph. An original painting from Picasso would be extremely expensive, so lithographs were made. It’s the same quality as an original, signed by the artist, at a fraction of the cost. I did some research for you and found out Picasso lithograph values are all over the place. The fewer that were made, the higher the value. It seems that editions of 500 aren’t that uncommon. So the values ran in the range of $200 to a few hundred dollars. Some with a limited edition of 10 were in the thousands of dollars range. I think it would be safe to say you’re looking at $200 and possibly more.

Dear Car Talk: I have a 2005 Dodge Stratus with about 95,000 miles. As it gets close to 100,000 miles, I’m wondering what maintenance is recommended and about what By Ray Magliozzi it all will cost. I had the oil changed yesterday and asked these questions at the dealership, but the answers were vague and didn’t inspire my trust. The man I spoke to listed a few things, including a transmission flush, and said I should expect to pay $600-$1,000 for routine maintenance at 100,000 miles. I want to do what needs to be done to keep the car running well for as long as possible, and I want to get ahead of any problems. — Molly Because this car is now of bar mitzvah age, I’d recommend that you do what we call the “Blue Plate Special.” That’s a service we provide for customers who are thinking about buying a used car. They bring the car to us, and we’ll spend a couple of hours going over it from stem to stern. We’ll test everything, from the headlights to the tailpipe. We’ll check the engine compression, the emissions, the suspension, the brakes, the exhaust. We’ll look for leaks, cracks, fungus,

HIPPO | FEBRUARY 15 - 21, 2018 | PAGE 36

even ingrown toenails — though we’ve yet to find one of those on a Dodge Stratus. Then we’ll give the customer a complete report on the car. We’ll start out by reporting any “terminal conditions.” If there’s a serious engine problem, the transmission is slipping or there’s coolant in the oil, that’s often a sign to abandon the car and move on to something else. But if the car is basically roadworthy, we’ll tell the customer what needs to be fixed right now, what likely will need repair in the next six months or a year and what we can predict down the road. So you should get yourself a Blue Plate Special. Find out if the car is basically sound enough to invest in, going forward. If it is, find out if there are any safety issues, like bad ball joints or steering issues. There certainly could be safety-related repairs due at 100,000 miles, and those things would need to be addressed right away. Then find out what needs to be done in addition to the recommended fluid and filter changes. For instance, if you haven’t done it already, you’re probably due for a timing belt and water pump for $500. Once you have that information, you’ll be able to make an informed decision as to how much money it’s going to take to keep this car going, over what period of time, and wheth-

er you want to stay in this relationship or bail. To find someone to do the Blue Plate Special, I’d suggest going to mechanicsfiles. com. That’s a database of mechanics that our readers and listeners have personally recommended. Put in your ZIP code and see if there’s a highly rated independent mechanic near you. That’ll almost certainly save you some money, as opposed to the dealer. And at 100,000 miles, don’t be surprised if you have to put $1,000 into maintenance. So brace yourself, Molly. Hey, it’s a small price to pay for the luxury of an ‘05 Dodge Stratus, right? Dear Car Talk: I am not very interested in cars, although I enjoy your column every week (it’s always funny). I have a 5-year-old Hyundai Sonata. Given all of the recent improvements in safety technology that you regularly highlight in your column, do you have a recommendation for a new or relatively new used car that has all of the updated safety technology at a reasonable price? Make and model don’t matter very much to me (as I said, I drive a Hyundai Sonata). Thanks. — Steve It’s still a little early to see the best modern safety features on used cars. You might find a demo or a car returned from a short lease,

but this stuff just hasn’t been in circulation very long yet. Fortunately, the technology is increasingly available (at least as options) on modestly priced cars. If you Google “IIHS Top Safety Picks,” you’ll find this year’s Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s list of cars that have the good stuff. For instance, on the list, you’ll find certain versions of the 2018 Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Subaru Impreza, Toyota Corolla and Prius, and the new Hyundai Sonata, by the way. If possible, you want what they call a “Top Safety Pick Plus,” which is the IIHS’s top rating for overall active and passive safety. Whether you look for a new or used car, you want to make absolutely certain that you get the following equipment: — Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking (both city and highway speed). — Blind-spot monitoring. — Rear cross-traffic alert. — Lane departure warning. We also recommend the optional butt scratcher, but if you have to give up something to afford the safety stuff, you can pass on that and do it manually. Visit

Brookline Chili/Soup/Chowder cook-off returns By Matt Ingersoll

News from the local food scene

By Matt Ingersoll

If you missed Soup Night at the Brookline Public Library last month, a larger tasting competition featuring locally made soups, chilis and chowders is coming to town. More than a dozen amateur and professional chefs will showcase their creations at the fourth annual Brookline Chili/ Soup/Chowder Cook-off, to be held at the Brookline Event Center on Sunday, Feb. 18, from noon to 3 p.m. According to Valerie Rearick, Brookline town planner and cook-off organizer, the event was started by the town’s Economic Development Committee and has consistently grown over the years. “We started the cook-off basically to promote local businesses and to get people together to have fun,” Rearick said. “It was very successful the first time and last year we actually ran out of food by the end. … I’d say we had maybe 300 or 350 people show up.” There is a one-time entry fee to go around and sample all of the offerings, which Rearick said this year consist of five chowders, four soups and four chilis. Judging begins at noon; this year’s judges include a mem-

Dishes at previous Luau Parties have included coconut lime chicken wings and shrimp, pineapple meatballs, honey jerk pork sliders, mahi mahi and key lime pie. Visit or call 886-3663. • Hot dogs and beer: To celebrate the reporting of the Boston Red Sox team pitchers and catchers to Florida for spring training, Local Baskit (10 Ferry St., Suite 120A, Concord) is holding a pitchers and catchers hot dogs and beer pairing event on Tuesday, Feb. 20, from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is going to feature craft beers from local breweries like Henniker Brewing Co., Concord Craft Brewing, Hobbs Tavern and Brewery, Rising Tide and more, as well as hot dogs provided by Miles Smith Farm.

But members of the public are also invited to vote on their favorite chowder, soup and chili as well. “[The vendors] often get very creative,” Rearick said, adding that past entries have included corn, shrimp and vegetarian chowders, tortilla soups, smoked brisket chilis and others. In addition to the entry tastings, a raffle will be drawn about 15 minutes before the event ends, with prizes like gift certificates to some of the participating businesses given away to visitors. Local music group the Brookline Acous-

tic Jammers, who provided live music at the event last year, is expected to return this year, according to Rearick. The Friends of the Brookline Library will set up tables of their own to sell homemade cookies, brownies and other treats. Other features will include a cash bar, face painting, games and more. Rearick said the cook-off is part of the annual threeday Winter Festival, held Feb. 16 to Feb. VALERIE REARICK 18. The festival includes open ice skating, ice fishing demonstrations, cribbage tournaments, a spaghetti dinner and more, to raise money for the town’s upcoming 250th anniversary celebration in 2019.

New Jersey, Philly-inspired eats coming to Litchfield

Coming from southern New Jersey, Nashua resident Jeff Bono grew up near a dozen diners and just a half hour away from the where original rib-eye cheesesteak sandwiches were created in Philadelphia. Now he’s bringing these comfort foods to New Hampshire. Mel’s Diner opened Feb. 12 in the vacant restaurant space on the grounds of Mel’s Funway Park in Litchfield. “South Jersey is essentially the diner capital of the nation,” Bono said. “I grew up in the diner age … and also on the original Geno’s and Pat’s cheesesteaks in Philly. I’ll be using ribeye and slicing my own, so you’ll be getting the original cheesesteak from Philadelphia.” Bono said the name being similar to the adjacent park’s is a coincidence that “just stuck.” “The name is actually from an old TV show from the ’70s and early ’80s called Alice,” he said. “Mel’s Diner was the diner in Phoenix, Arizona, on the show, and it just happened to be one of my favorite shows … and then when we found this place and came in, that’s just what we decided to go with.” In December, Bono took over the space, which was most recently occupied by the Gale Motor Co. Pitstop and has been the site of several eateries over the years. But despite the tough history for businesses, the food Bono will be offering and the prices attached to them are what he hopes will set him apart. “We’ve actually been reaching out to people around here to see what they would like us to offer, and the answers have often been ‘breakfast all day,’” Bono said. “So that’s what we’re going to be doing, and everything will be made from scratch.” The plan is to serve breakfast and lunch seven days a week from opening day through the end of February before working toward a dinner

menu that may be unveiled as early as spring. “It’s all comfort food,” he said. “For breakfast, I’ll be doing flat-top omelets that will be loaded. We’ll be doing scratch-made biscuits and gravy, Belgian waffles, French toast, pancakes and steak and eggs.” The menu will also include “dessert as breakfast” options. “We’ll be doing things like the inside of a cinnamon bun that’s deep fried, sprinkled with cinnamon and served with a dipping sauce,” he said. “Another thing we’re working on is going to be like mini waffles with ice cream in between and then it’s going to be drenched in maple syrup and chocolate sauce.” In addition to rib-eye cheesesteaks, the lunch menu is going to include comfort food staples like American chop suey, chicken pot pie, mashed potatoes, club sandwiches and burgers, and double cheeseburgers. “Up here, people often think of a double cheeseburger as two patties with cheese on a bun,” Bono said, “but down where I come from, a double cheeseburger is two whole burgers on a plate, with fries, so you’re actually getting two burgers.” Mel’s Diner is Bono’s first full-serve restaurant as owner, but he has worked as an executive chef at several restaurants around the state for years, including the Angel’s Kitchen inside Penuche’s in Manchester and the former Travers Tavern in Goffstown. When Mel’s Funway Park reopens for the season, he said he’ll likely offer late-night dinner service that will follow the hours of the park. Mel’s Diner

Ideas from off the shelf

Eggs When it comes to perishables ingredients, I keep coming back to eggs. Eggs are the perfect food all in one package. And I’m not just talking about the whites! In fact, I would advocate the white part of the egg is the least valuable part of the egg. The yolks have essential fatty acids and several vitamins including A, E, B12 and K. Over the years egg yolks received quite a bad rap, but they are absolutely worth including in any balanced diet, in my humble opinion. Plus, just egg whites are so tasteless! I recently gave birth to my third daughter and eggs are saving my life right now. Every Sunday I prepare eggs. Hardboiled eggs are a great go-to but they’re not the only staple I swear by. Recently I’ve been making egg casseroles that I can enjoy throughout the week. Much to my surprise, an egg casserole saves and reheats really nicely, making it an easy and nutrition-dense food to grab when I have a free moment. And I don’t have too many of those right now! This would be a great option for someone who loves

nutritious nibbles a bigger breakfast but doesn’t have the time to make it each morning. It’s also a great choice for families or special events. Depending on the size you work with, this casserole can feed a crowd and be quite festive. Below I’ve included my favorite recipe for an egg casserole. Let it be a loose guide.

This year’s New Hampshire Wine Week and Winter Wine Spectacular has come and gone but has left me with some new wines to put on my go-to list. I did something different this year and did not look over the list of wines ahead of time like I have done in years past. So while I went to the event without a real game plan, this gave me some flexibility and spontaneity. Here are some of the wines I tried, many of which I will purchase in the future. At the Rodney Strong table, I had the chance to meet Greg Morthole, winemaker from Rodney Strong and Davis Bynum, after interviewing him via phone in January. There, we tried a few wines including their cabernet, which Greg said is their best-seller. I’d call it their regular cabernet because it isn’t one of their single vineyard ones or anything, but it was anything but boring. I found it to be smooth, rich and pleasant on the palate and finish. I did try one of the single vineyard cabs as well and unfortunately did not write down the name, but would probably still go back to the latter just because I found it so enjoyable. Another plus is the first cab is priced at $21.99. That one is the perfect go to for so many occasions. Derek, a friend from the wine business, made a couple of table recommendations, one being Höpler Winery from Austria. There, owner and winemaker Christhof Höpler was pouring wines. I was told to try the Trockenbeerenauslese. I couldn’t pronounce it properly, so I pointed to it and Christhof said its name back to me better than I could ever attempt. Similar to an ice wine, this is one of the sweetest dessert wines in the world, made from ripe grapes that have been affected by fungus, or noble rot. This process gives them heightened sugar content. While this wine is very sweet, I found it smooth and silky. It reminded me of apricot nectar and was very luscious. At $45.99, I would savor every last drop. Another recommendation was Neal Family Vineyards from Napa Valley, where owner Mark Neal was pouring wines. I had tried several cabs, so I switched things up and tried their petite sirah, which comes from their Rutherford Dust Vineyards. Mark explained that their wines are made in fairly small vintages. For example, they only produced 417 cases of the 2011 vintage of that wine. I always love meeting the own-

ers and winemakers for these reasons. I like hearing their stories and appreciate how much hard work they put into their wines. I did like this wine as well, and would splurge a little to purchase a Neal wine (they range from $20 to $56, with reds being more expensive overall) because I appreciate that they are not mass-produced. Francis Ford Coppola had two tables at the event. At the second table, there were two wines from the Director’s Great Movies collection: Wizard of Oz Merlot and King Kong Cabernet Sauvignon. (They also make a Jaws Chardonnay.) I was drawn to the Wizard of Oz label, as this was one of my favorite movies growing up. I usually like merlot, and found this one pleasant and fruit-forward with a long but pleasant finish. These wines would make great gifts for movie fans who are also wine lovers because the bottle is worth saving after the wine is finished. They are priced at $24.99 each. I had a hard time picking wines to try at one of the Winebow tables because there were so many Italian wine choices. I settled on Alanera Rosso Veronese IGT. This wine, from the Valpolicella region, is a blend of corvina and rodinella, among several other grapes. I found it smooth, velvety and complex — just the way an Italian wine should be. At $18.99, this wine is a complete steal. Actually, pretty much all the Italian wines at the table were reasonably priced, which is one of my favorite things about Italian wines — there are so many good ones that are affordable.

Wow, you have to go way back with this U.K. duo led by Jack Dangers; their mashed-up, muddled-up, neartrain-wreck tuneage from back in 1989 brought us things like “We Got the Fear,” a masterpiece of scratching and sample-terrorism, one of the things they tossed into early electro-rock-trip-hop culture. That stuff inspired Chemical Brothers and Prodigy for two, and was on the boombox tapes of anyone whose coolness was a liability in life. I missed out on their 2010 glitch-dubstep opus Answers Come in Dreams, why I don’t know, but they’re back after eight years looking for more edge to cut. Toss-away track “One” is a reminder that they don’t care what anyone thinks, but when the grooves come in, it’s a take-no-prisoners affair. “We Are Surrounded” welds space-shot bloop to velvet-rope chill; “Lurker” turns prog-house on its ear; “Nereus Rov” gives us a new-jack form of dubstep Ed Sheeran could learn from. Get this, just get it. A+ — Eric W. Saeger Birthday Massacre, Under Your Spell (Metropolis Records)

Frankly I’d forgotten about my Metropolis feed, but after getting the house (slightly) in order for 2018, I realized there was something missing, namely the fascination I’d had with the goth-rock genre I wouldn’t shut up about back in the mid-Aughts. This girl-fronted Toronto outfit had a great start back then, fixated equally on purple-and-black art, 1980s synthpop and Gary Numan-style swirl-and-fog, but their relative (and under-noticed) success prompted them to try competing with the jackboot types, your Lacuna Coils and whatnot. I lost interest then, but with this LP they do seem to be back on the right path. Singer Chibi obviously just went through — well, something; her lyrics speaking of wasted time and heartbreak, and if that’s what the deal is, there’s no better time to make a record. The slow-booming synths and hooks are slightly downcast but a huge improvement over previous releases, starting with the title track, evoking Ace of Base with a grenade launcher. Wistful (but creepy) track like “Without You” hark back to 2004’s Violet (easily their best), and there’s plenty of that here. Good to see them doing the right thing. A+ — Eric W. Saeger

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases

• Twee superstars Belle & Sebastian have been around forever now, and at one point last year their accountants were like, “Is there some ROI we’ve missed, like maybe something that could shake the diñeiro tree and lessen a few ‘shillings’ and ‘tuppences’ without spending any extra studio money?” Putting down their mint-mocha chai teas for an hour, the band eventually solved this problem by realizing they could release the three EPs in the ongoing How To Solve Our Human Problems series as one big multi-option mush of hot, mousy nerd-rock, and that’s what we’ll see from them on Feb. 16, when you can just skip the “subscription” nonsense and have all three mini-albums at once, combined into one pirate download or whatever you usually do to obtain music, preferably shelling out the $12 for the actual CD instead of the $4 million for the vinyl. I usually can’t stand twee, but I’ll admit that the single “I’ll Be Your Pilot” conjures visions of “Sunshine Superman”-era Donovan and 1960s girlie movie soundtracks, neither of which is inherently awful. Let’s move on. • As Wikipedia explains, Superchunk helped to define the Chapel Hill, N.C., rawk scene of the 1990s, which, in layman’s terms, meant that they were able to emulate the Redd Kross sound of 1979. Hey, though, that was North Carolina, and at least someone was trying to be bratty in the 1990s, while the radio was playing all that other stuff that’s made it the shunned decade of art it remains. Superchunk is at it again, for all you older hipsters who had their music in your IUMA lists, you scamps, and the new LP is What a Time to Be Alive, wielding the hot single “Erasure,” which is like Weezer using raw amps and a better, more unhinged singer. It’s OK for what it is, and no, I was not paid by goons to write that faint praise. • Fischerspooner, heh heh, I remember them, the krautrock thingamajig, and they did a song with Miss Kittin and there was a guy with a round dentist lamp on his head, right? Yup, that’s them, and this New York duo has a new album, called Sir, so let’s toddle off to YouTube and see what Kraftwerk would sound like if they’d been raised on Aphex Twin but refused to buy good software programs (OK, I know I’ve lost pretty much everyone by now, and I’d be about to throw this paper in the rubbish myself, but let me explain: you know the soundtrack to Weird Science? Well, it’s like that, but long mix versions, stuff I wouldn’t even know about if I hadn’t received PR service from the super-obscure record labels who took over the world but seemed hopeless in 2003). Where were we? Yes, the single, “Have Fun Tonight.” Same old cheesy keyboards, some Grizzly Bear vocals, blech. • Pianos Become the Teeth are screamo second-bananas from Baltimore. Their new album Wait For Love has an emo song called “Charisma” on it. They sound a tiny bit like REM. A tiny bit. — Eric W. Saeger

Cheryl Richardson presents Waking Up in Winter



For years, Cheryl Richardson has been teaching people the importance of self-care and how to live a more fulfilling life. In her seventh book, Waking Up in Winter: In Search of What Really Matters at Midlife, released in December, she shares that message through the lens of her own experiences, with memoir and excerpts from her personal journals. Richardson will discuss the book at Gibson’s Bookstore in Concord on Thursday, Feb. 22. “Many of us are bombarded with motivational and inspirational messages and information and howtos,” Richardson said, “but I thought, instead of just telling people how to live a more awake, meaningful life, I’ll take them on a journey with me and show them how I did it.” The “winter” referenced in the book title is a metaphor for the “hibernation periods” in life, she said, during which a person can reevaluate their relationships and friendships, home, career, activities and other areas of their life. For Richardson, that period came when she reached her 50s. “I realized that I had more years behind me than ahead of me, so I decided to look at what is important to me, what doesn’t matter anymore, and what behaviors and habits and qualities of character needed to change as I entered the next stage in my life,” she said. “I hope that by sharing the intimate details of that process [in the book], it will inspire people to question their lives in a similar way.” The book is applicable not only to people entering midlife, but to people of any age

who are at a turning point, whether they’re in their late 20s looking for direction, their late 30s or early 40s feeling burned out, or their 70s or 80s considering the next stage of their lives. That turning point may also be a major life event, such as the death of a loved one, the beginning or end of a marriage, entering an empty nest, losing a job or the diagnoses of an illness. “These are the wake-up calls that invite us to look more carefully at the lives that we live,” Richardson said. “They wake us up to a revelation of what really matters.” The best way for a person to start the process of reexamining their life, Richardson said, is to ask themselves the question, “If this was my last day on earth, would I be happy with how I lived my life?” Then, they should set aside a significant amount of time to explore that question, either through writing in a journal or talking with a life coach or therapist. “Taking that time to reflect on our lives ultimately allows us to feel more fulfilled and satisfied with how we’re living and creates meaning in our lives,” she said. Sharing her personal journals was not an easy decision for Richardson. Throughout the whole two years that she was compiling and editing them for the book, even up to the moment that she pressed “send” 48

In 2014, Chessy Prout was a freshman at St. Paul’s School, a prestigious boarding school in New Hampshire, when a senior boy sexually assaulted her as a part of a ritualized game of conquest. Chessy bravely reported her assault to the police and testified against her attacker in court. Then, in the face of unexpected backlash from her once-trusted school community, she shed her anonymity to help other survivors find their voice.

Ty Gagne, Chief Executive Officer of NH Public Risk Management Exchange presents Where You’ll Find me: Risk, Decisions, and the Last Climb of Kate Matrosova. On Feb. 15, 2015, Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, set off before sunrise for a traverse of the Northern Presidental Range in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes. What went wrong? Where You’ll Find Me offers possible answers to that question, demonstrating why Matrosova’s story--what we know and what we will never know--represents such an intriguing and informative case study in risk analysis and decision-making.

I am all for it. CRated R for strong sexual content, nudity and language, according to the MPAA. Directed by James Foley with a screenplay by Niall Leonard, Fifty Shades Freed is an hour and 45 minutes long and distributed by Universal Studios.

It’s man versus rabbit in Peter Rabbit, a live-action movie with CGI animals, loosely based on the Beatrix Potter stories.

good at oddball. Bea, a painter of weird art and a close friend to jacket-wearing rabbits, is not so much more normal than McGregor, and Byrne lets that note of weirdness come through. B Rated PG for rude humor and action, according to the MPAA. Directed by Will Gluck with a screenplay by Rob Lieber and Will Gluck, Peter Rabbit is an hour and 33 minutes long and distributed by Columbia Pictures.

Fifty Shades Freed (R)

Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele get married and continue having almost tepid, overly complicated sex in Fifty Shades Freed, the last (please) movie based on the Fifty Shades of Grey books.

Our heat-free couple, Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan), tie the knot, honeymoon in fancy places and then settle in to what takes the bulk of the movie’s screen time: a non-stop cycle of doin’ it followed by peril followed by more doin’ it followed by more peril, etc., world without end, and occasionally there’s some real estate thrown in. I have so many real estate-related questions! For example, if they sell Christian’s luxury penthouse (he buys Ana a fancy estate-

Those three Americans (two of whom were in the military at the time) did a genuinely heroic thing so I feel bad about saying this but: these guys are not actors. Sully Sullenberger and Capt. Phillips also did heroic things but they let Tom Hanks do the heavy lifting on screen. As you may recall, in 2015, American service members Spencer Stone and Alek Skarlatos along with their friend Anthony Sadler were riding a train while on vacation in France when a man started shooting. Stone tackled the man, Skarlatos and Sadler and a British man Christopher Norman (who also apparently plays himself) helped to subdue him. The movie ends with footage of thenFrench president Francois Hollande awarding the men the Knights of the Legion of Honour. Because that’s only a few minutes of action, this movie gives us all the possible back story, including Stone, Skarlatos and Sadler as kids and their vague school troubles and Stone’s attempts at finding his place in the military. Judy Greer and Jenna Fischer play Stone’s and Skarlatos’ moms. This movie feels like the wrong way to tell this story. In Sully, Eastwood deftly made an incident that happened in a relatively brief period of time fill a whole movie. Here, the movie feels like mostly filler. And somehow, when we actually get to the big moment, 51

mous “Red Room” (which, though central to the series, this movie kind of forgets about)? Does she pass it off as a craft room? The driver of the plot is the peril, which involves the eyeroll-ishly named villain Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson). Ana says something like “why is he doing this to us” after an act of villainy and I wanted to scream “because he’s the villain!” because that is the best motivation the movie gives him and when it tries to fill in the backstory it is so much goofier than “just because.” All of this could be forgivable if there was some chemistry, even hate chemistry, between Ana and Christian, which there is not. Several moments of them together work better as laugh-out-loud comedy than as anything erotic. In fact, there are a few times they walk so close to the comedy line I almost wondered to what degree this movie might be mocking itself. One of the few truly satisfying moments of the entire series happens in Freed when Ana finally tells whiny, needy, controlling Christian to grow up (but more R-ratedly). It reminded me of how, even through the absurdity of the plot, Johnson was, especially in the first movie, occasionally able to make Ana funny and normal-seeming and the movies are always better for those moments. Johnson has always been the one who understood the

Since Peter Rabbit’s (voice of James Corden) mother died, human Bea (Rose Byrne) has cared for him and his sisters — Flopsy (voice of Margot Robbie), Mopsy (voice of Elizabeth Debicki) and Cotton-Tail (voice of Daisy Ridley) — and their cousin, Benjamin Bunny (voice of Colin Moody), who live under a tree near her house. Also nearby is the well-tended garden of mean old Mr. McGregor (Sam Neill), he of “put Peter’s father into a pie” fame. Peter still regularly raids the garden for fruits and vegetables, even getting caught by McGregor himself. Peter gets lucky, though, and before he can put Peter in a pie, McGregor has a massive heart attack and dies. What fun, kids! For a while, Peter and his friends have the run of the garden. But then Thomas McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson), old Mr. McGregor’s heir, shows up. He has no interest in gardening and plans to sell the property. But then he meets Bea, and suddenly he likes the country a little more. This is a very weird movie. On the one hand, it is your standard average-or-slightly-below kids movie that rat-a-tats with the jokes and has a little too much wacky humor with a pop-rock soundtrack. It also has a lot of talking and a surprising amount of death and attempted murder (McGregors on wildlife, wildlife on both McGregors). On the other hand, I laughed out loud, several times. The relationship between Bea and Thomas is strange and delightful. At times this movie feels more rom-com than kid fare. Gleeson frequently executes some topnotch comic delivery. It’s like his direction was “General Hux from the Star Wars movies but bonkers-ier!” And it’s great! I don’t know if it’s kids-movie great but it is “what am I watching, this is nuts!” great. James Corden does a fine job as Peter’s voice. Just when he starts to feel like some late-aughts DreamWorks Animation char-

The title of Revolution Road, the debut album from The Freeway Revival, could be a reference to resistance and reaction. But it’s actually a celebration of flow and continuity. “Keeping the wheels turning toward the positive things in life, now and in the future,” bassist and songwriter Kenny Crowley told one writer when the disc was released last September. The energy flows like the easy harmonies and smooth instrumentation that mark the record’s 11 tracks — a reflection of how the five musicians in The Freeway Revival came together. Twin brothers Adam and Jonathan Clayton were at a crossroads when their first band’s rhythm section departed in 2015. Crowley, a recent San Francisco transplant, was a singersongwriter looking for collaborators; he found the Claytons at the same time as drummer Cartwright Brandon and guitarist Tim Husk. The first time they jammed, on some old CSN&Y and Eagles songs, there was clearly something special. “Immediately, everyone knew which part to take,” Crowley said in a recent phone interview. “It was a blend of harmonies that I’d been searching for, for a long time. ... The glove fit, and everything started grooving.” Each brought a unique element to the effort. “Everyone in the group is a songwriter, so it gave us a lot of material to start with,” CrowThe Freeway Revival When: Tuesday, Feb. 20, 8 p.m. Where: Jewel Music Venue, 61 Canal St., Manchester More: Also appearing Saturday, Feb. 17, at Ragged Mountain Ski Resort in Danbury

Freeway Revival by Libby Gamble.

ley said. “It’s great how the different styles give us an eclectic fit; there’s cohesion and variety.” Beyond that, each track was a template, shaped into final form with full band input. The brothers’ love for SoCal rock is apparent on “Wandering’,” but the band put its own stamp on the song, adding a new ending. With Brandon on drums, there’s a boisterous Black Crowes with Jimmy Page flavor to album opener “Goodbye,” and Husk’s slashing licks elevate the deep funk rocker “Soul Survivor.” One of the record’s standout tracks is a good example of the group’s ability to evolve a song, to smooth a stone into a gem. Crowley’s song “Rise” began as a selfjourney and was shaped into something much more powerful. “It was written in one of those doubtful times as a personal booster and it became a much bigger thing,” he said. “The harmonies they added makes it one of those kind of epic ballads that builds.” Building songs to a crescendo is a band trademark. Each cut on the record is five minutes or longer, with the rollicking “Peace” stretching to eight. It reflects a jam band spirit — but this is disciplined music. The democratic approach can be perilous for some, but The Freeway Revival does it with aplomb.

“There’s a mentality in the band that makes that possible, where you can bring something to the table and it becomes totally different from what you imagined,” Crowley said. This philosophy was tested in the making of Revolution Road. Working with producer Matt Hueneman — “a seasoned veteran and a great guitar player,” Crowley said — they spent five days in the studio doing initial tracking. The band liked the results, but Hueneman suggested some changes. What followed was months of back and forth emailing of tracks — a hard but rewarding process, with benefits beyond the studio. “File sharing was a challenge to communication ... what’s the point you’re trying to make here?” Crowley said. “Ultimately, I think it made everyone work out their parts to the point where they are really strong and serve the song, and they’re now permanent ... locked in.” The spirit of “Rise” reflects the band’s ethos of relentless touring and devotion to their music. “The struggle is real, and sticking to it full time can be hard,” Crowley said, “but when you realize it’s your true calling, you’ve gotta rise above all that and make it happen, devote yourself to it. Once you make that commitment, you start to see things happen.”

SIGNS OF LIFE reason I like sports. There’s a certain amount of time you have to battle it out, and when the clock runs out, there’s a clear winner and a clear loser. Or possibly a clear tie, but a coin toss will clear that right up. Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) I was terrible at baseball. ... It was a dampening realization, to say the least, but I also knew I had a choice: I could accept my limitations and move on, or I could work hard to overcome them. Work hard, but don’t expect miracles. Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) At the insistence of my college girlfriend, I attempted to expand my interests beyond politics. It’s a good time for expanding your interests. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) As soon as you think you’re good enough to pitch a no-hitter, up walks an opponent prepared to knock your first pitch straight over that fence. You may face some competition. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) Both the Democratic and Republican national conventions [of 1956] were broadcast on television, taking over several hours of programming…. it was deadly boring and I would venture to guess that I was probably the only fourteenyear-old boy in America interested enough in politics to watch both conventions, gavel to gavel. You don’t have to like what everyone else likes. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) It was a modest house, made more modest by the telephone pole that, for some reason, had been erected right smack in the middle of our front lawn. Modesty is the best policy. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Whether it’s a weakness or a virtue, I haven’t really caught on to the value of a vacation. I enjoy my work too much to have ever felt the need to develop outside hobbies, and the busier I’m kept, the happier I feel. You might have a busy vacation.

All quotes are from The Long Game: A Memoir, by Sen. Mitch McConnell, born Feb. 20, 1942. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) Not only did I not enjoy practicing law, but I wasn’t very good at it. I knew I couldn’t keep doing this. The good news was that I had begun to set my sights on a clear goal. Sometimes experience comes before goals. Aries (March 21 – April 19) The only thing that excited me about this new school was that it was the alma mater of Louisvillian Pee Wee Reese, a member of my beloved Brooklyn Dodgers, who had captained the team to its 1955 World Series victory. You may be following in the footsteps of greatness. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) During the many afternoons I spent playing in someone’s backyard, the other boys and I abided by one enduring rule: whoever called out “general” first got to be in charge. The selfdeclared general would choose the game we’d play, decide on the rules, and create the teams. I was very good at being the first one to think of doing this, and much to the irritation of my playmates, it was a rare occasion that I wasn’t the general. Until one afternoon, when another young boy named Stanley Martin responded to my call of general by looking me square in the eye. “God,” he said. I was dumbfounded. Take that, general. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Soon after moving to Louisville, I had made a vow to myself: if I ever got used to Kentucky, I was never going to leave. The question is, how long does it take to get used to Kentucky? Cancer (June 21 – July 22) If you’re going to read every poll and knuckle under every hiccup, you’re going to be a pretty lousy representative. Don’t read the comments. Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) ...I’ve always greatly enjoyed campaigning ... for the same

Something to sing about

The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Switzerland has a new course of study for scholars to pursue: a bachelor’s or master’s in yodeling. Beginning in the 2018-19 academic year, students will be able to major in the traditional form of singing, which was used by Swiss herdsmen to communicate with each other in the mountains. The BBC reported that prize-winning yodeler Nadja Rass will lead the courses, which will also include musical theory and history. “We have long dreamed of offering yodeling at the university,” gushed Michael Kaufmann, head of the school’s music department.

Names in the news

Police in Logansport, Indiana, finally caught up with the thief who had been targeting churches in the area since Jan. 16: Christian J. Alter, 22, of Kewanna, was charged with breaking into five houses of worship and stealing cash, according to the Logansport Pharos-Tribune. Alter was apprehended Jan. 23 just moments before the fifth burglary, at Rehoboth Christian Church, was discovered by police. He was being held in the Cass County Jail.

The continuing crisis

Birds nesting near natural gas compressors have been found to suffer symptoms similar to PTSD in humans, according to researchers at the Florida Museum of Natural History, and noise pollution has been named the culprit. The Washington Post reported the team studied birds in the Rattlesnake Canyon Habitat Management Area in New Mexico, which is uninhabited by humans but does contain natural gas wells and compression stations that constantly emit a low-frequency hum. The steady noise was linked to abnormal levels of stress hormones, and the usually hardy western bluebirds in the area were found to be smaller and displayed bedraggled feathers. “The body is just starting to break down,” stress physiologist Christopher Lowry said.

Armed and naked

In Texas, game wardens came across an arresting sight in Gregg County last November: an unnamed Upshur County man hunting in the nude along a state highway. The Houston Chronicle reported that the hunter, who is a well-known nudist and activist in the area, contested his arrest on charges including hunting without a license, but one look in court at the warden’s body cam footage undermined his case. The man then dropped his appeals and settled the citations.

The right to remain silent

Vincente Rodrigues-Ortiz, 22, was arrested on Jan. 24 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for the assault and murder of Andre Hawkins, 17, the day before. But when Rodrigues-Ortiz

appeared in court on Jan. 25 for arraignment, he questioned the judge about his “other murder case.” WWMT TV reported that his query led prosecutors to interview and then swiftly charge him with the March 2017 homicide of Laurie Kay Lundeburg, and Rodrigues-Ortiz now awaits arraignment in that case as well.

Brutally honest

Bright idea

A landlord in Cardiff, Wales, was caught in a compromising position when he offered a special rent deal to an ITV Wales reporter with a hidden camera. The unnamed man posted an ad on Craigslist offering a 650-pound-per-month home with the option of a “reduced deposit/rent arrangement” for “alternative payments.” When he met reporter Sian Thomas at a restaurant to discuss the property, he said, “I don’t know if you have heard of a sort of ‘friends with benefits’ sort of arrangement,” reported Metro News on Jan. 30. He went on to say that if a once-a-week sex arrangement could be struck, “then I wouldn’t be interested in any rent from you at all.” The ITV Wales report was part of an investigation into “sex for rent” arrangements, which apparently are not uncommon in Wales, judging from other advertisements.

Kane Blake of Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, has great things to say about his Springvalley home: “It’s a gorgeous neighborhood,” and his family loves most things about it. Nevertheless, the Blakes have listed their home for sale, with a sign out front reading: “Home for Sale by owner because neighbor is an ---hole.” Blake said a neighbor has been harassing his family for five years, including sending police and bylaws officers to the house for frivolous reasons and taking photos of Blake’s house. “My kids won’t even walk to school, they’re terrified,” he told the Kelowna Capital News, adding that he’s Government in action received several offers on his house. (Update: Saugatuck, Michigan, attorney Michael Kane has since removed the sign.)
