HIPPO | MARCH 15 - 21, 2018 | PAGE 2



In the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at a Florida high school, Hippo’s regular Granite Views contributors will each consider the renewed debate about gun control and other issues related to school shootings in a four-part series running through March 22. This is the third in that series.

Common sense

During my sophomore year of high school, on April 20, 1999, the Columbine shooting happened. This tragedy, though thousands of miles away, forever changed the sense of safety for me and many of my classmates. Students gathered for regular vigils at our high school and shared thoughts of disbelief and prayers that this not happen to us. In the years since that early spring day nearly 20 years ago, we have heard a lot of recommendations about how expanded access to guns, not restrictions, is the solution to keeping us safer as a society. I’ve been around responsible gun owners since birth and I have serious reservations about this theory. My father was a member of law enforcement and had to undergo rigorous range trainings. He was tested annually in a variety of scenarios and had to pass the tests with 80 percent accuracy or better in order to possess a firearm on the job. My grandfather, when serving our country, also had to participate in significant combat training before he was able to depart overseas to defend his country. The truth is most of us do not possess the ability to remain accurate and calm while in a life-or-death situation. Imagine that rush of adrenaline that you get when you narrowly avoid a fender bender, your heart racing and your hands shaking, and magnify that by a thousand — that’s what it’s like when there is an active shooter situation. Now imagine being able to fire a gunshot with the precision needed to kill that person, often with a weapon that pales in comparison to theirs, in the throes of that rush. Having fired off a few rounds at the local sandpit myself, I can attest to the feeling of power one possess when they pull that trigger. But I will be the first to admit that putting a gun in my hand does not transform me into someone who could be capable of shooting down a gunman in a mass shooting situation. I’m not sure what the solutions may be for our country. I do know that they need to protect the people while honoring our constitutional rights. I don’t think more guns are the answer but I know we won’t ever find a solution unless we can find a space for discussion. Allyson Ryder is associate director of Leadership New Hampshire.

Pease tradeport

Gov. Chris Sununu sent a letter to the director of the Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry requesting that the Pease International Tradeport be included in a planned

national study of the health impacts of perfluorochemicals. The study was included in the 2018 Defense Authorization Act. Pease, a former Air Force installation, had its groundwater contaminated by the chemicals that were included in firefighting foam used at the site. As a result, the state has identified more than 1,500 residents whose blood tested with elevated levels of the chemical, many of them children who attended daycare centers at Pease.

At Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD) integrated its inpatient and Pediatric Intensive Care units, following a major renovation of the inpatient unit. According to a press release, the new space will function as a single unit for children and adolescents in need of all levels of care. Most of the $2 million renovation, which began two years ago, is complete. The final stage will be completed in July. The patients were moved into the new unit and the move was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. When the unit is complete, there will be a total of 21 beds.


According to a recent count of bald eagles in the state, the numbers are slightly down from past years. The AP reported New Hampshire bird-watchers have counted 97 bald eagles during a two-week period in January. The most recent counts were at 110. The numbers are still much stronger than they were in the early days of the count. New Hampshire Audubon senior biologist Chris Martin said only two eagles were counted in 1982, according to the story. Bald eagles were removed from the state’s Threatened and Endangered Species list last year.

Drug court growth

Manchester’s drug court, one of the latter additions to the state, launched officially in midNovember 2016. After over a year of operating, supervising Superior Court Judge Ken Brown said he’s pleased with the progress so far. They’ve also been growing at a rapid pace. “I believe we are now the largest drug court in the state. If we’re not, soon to be, because we are accepting new participants weekly and sometimes more than one,” Brown said. The target capacity under the current funding and staffing scheme is about 70 participants. After they reach that, Brown suspects the team will have to begin to add more staff and probably another judge with the second target being around 100 to 120 participants. “Serenity [Place] … grew with us and I thought was responding well to our growth. Of course, they’ve had their problems,” Brown said. Serenity Place was placed under receivership last December when state authorities found out it was operating under a deficit of about $600,000. The nonprofit had been struggling to transition from a state contract system to an insurance reimbursement revenue stream that relied largely on Medicaid at the same time it was ramping up capacity for things like Safe Station and drug court. The counselors who provide treatment for the drug court offer group and one-one-one therapy sessions on a regular basis. Some participants in Manchester also get access to medication assisted treatment in the form of Suboxone, Methadone or Vivitrol, provided by an authorized third party. Brown said if Elliot hadn’t been there to take over as treatment provider, it would essentially put the program on pause. “Worst case scenario, the drug court program couldn’t proceed or succeed. We have to provide the treatment; it’s the core centerpiece of drug court,” Brown said.

On March 1, the Hillsborough County Superior Court North drug court changed treatment providers. The same four counselors who were employed by the now-defunct Serenity Place will stay on with a new employer, Elliot Hospital, providing a relatively smooth transition — though transportation will create a new challenge.


On Jan. 24, the governor announced that Elliot would be taking over the treatment for the Manchester drug court. Since then, Brown said, the transition has been relatively seam-

less, though it may be too early to assume it will stay that way. Martha Leighton, the chief nursing officer for Elliot, said the court reached out to them to see if they’d be willing to take on the new role, since they knew about 90 percent of the participants had Elliot providers as their primary care providers. So they dug in and learned more about drug court. “As we learned more about it, we knew that absolutely this aligns with our mission, our focus on the community needs. So, we felt like this was something we had to do,” Leighton said. The hospital’s general counsel, John Friberg, said that everything happened fast. “We got the call from the state and the court system and it was all hands on deck here to make this work,” Friberg said. The state contract that funds the four counselors was awarded to Elliot, but Friberg said the hospital didn’t do it for the money. “The amount of funding … doesn’t cover a lot of the expenses and costs associated with this program,” Friberg said. Plus, they added a new position to oversee the drug court and other issues related to addiction called the director of substance use disorder. And Leighton said they hope to expand their capacity for addiction treatment to serve the larger community. The drug court counselors now set up in offices in the Elliot Hospital campus. “We found a really nice building for them that has a bus stop location, easability for clients, some private beautiful space over on Tarrytown [Road],” Leighton said. That is probably the biggest change for the participants. Before, they could walk between the court building and Serenity Place, which was located in the former police station on Chestnut Street. Brown said many of the participants don’t have driver’s licenses so this could cause some scheduling problems. “There will be some hiccups in transportation,” Brown said. But he’s confident the logistics will be worked out. Leighton said there is a bus stop not far from the new offices, which was part of the thinking behind it’s selection. So far, Leighton said they got positive feedback from at least one participant who was greeted by senior leadership when they arrived on March 1. “They said it was such a beautiful location. It really made them feel valued that they were finally being treated in a nice, professional building,” Leighton said. Friberg said they hope this new partnership will serve as a model to other healthcare providers in the state.

Here’s A Lucky Deal! Community college chair Cut - Color - Style

Tech entrepreneur takes over CCSNH board

Jeremy Hitchcock of Manchester has been voted by the Community College System of New Hampshire Board of Trustees to be its next chairman. He founded Dyn in 2001 and led the company until his departure in 2016. He started an internet security company called Minim in 2017 and is currently working to open The Bookery Manchester.






Why do you want to be chair of the board of trustees? Across the country, I think community colleges have really become a rising star in educating the future workforce of tomorrow. And I remember a lot of times at Dyn, it wouldn’t matter if you had a computer science degree from a private four-year institution, a public institution, a community college or had no experience. I think the ways in which people are much more mobile in their career thinking — they change jobs more often — we talk about this a lot with Millennials, but it’s also true of people who are later in their job cycle and career cycle. I think what community colleges are doing are absolutely phenomenal and New Hampshire is on the forefront of a lot of these national efforts. … Sixty-five percent of the workforce by the year 2025 will have some type of requirement for a credential, certificate or degree. And if you’re keeping score, New Hampshire is somewhere in the mid50s. So in order to keep our high per-capita income in the state of New Hampshire, we have some work to do to keep educating the population we have.

Community college systems everywhere tend to have an inverse relationship with the economy; they do well when there’s a recession and enrollment drops and staff gets cut Courtesy photo when there’s a recovery. This can impact quality of education. Do you know of any ways to short circuit that pattern here in New Hampshire? I don’t think I have any magic bullets to change that. I think the trend that you highlight is completely accurate. Economy goes up, typically people are working and they’re not thinking of retraining themselves. I’d say the only long-term pressure against that is people continuing to re-educate themselves on an ongoing basis. But I think the positive thing is we know that this relationship does happen and so, we as a system have to be thoughtful about how can we anticipate that in a much better way? … That’s the level of thinking about this more long-term strategic thinking, rather than year-to-year budgeting, that I hope to help influence and bring more to the foreWhat policies do you hope to focus on? front so we can anticipate these changes and be Would you like to make any changes? thoughtful rather that being caught flat-footed.

QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Drug recovery centers funded

The Executive Council unanimously approved $600,000 on Wednesday to keep Hope for New Hampshire Recovery, one of the state’s largest operators of drug recovery centers, open and operating in its locations in Manchester, Berlin and Franklin, NHPR reported. The center announced last month that it would be closing four of its five locations due to a lack of public funds. It is still unclear what will happen to the centers in Claremont and Concord. QOL Score: +1 Comment: Other recovery support providers across the state have also had financial struggles. The Executive Council approved an additional $100,000 on Wednesday for the Safe Station program in Nashua, which is facing a $400,000 deficit this year.

Energy scammers

Scammers posing as Eversource Energy employees are hitting the Manchester area, threatening to turn off people’s power if they don’t get paid, WMUR reports. In one incident, scammers called a veterinary center, claiming its power would be shut off if it didn’t pay $3,000 in 20 minutes. In another incident, the scammers walked into an apartment building and knocked on a resident’s door two days in a row. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Eversource says it will never send employees to ask for money out in the field.

Winners all around

The recent winner of the state’s $559 million Powerball lottery opted to take a lump sum of $352 million, which came out to be $264 million after federal taxes were withheld, according to a press release from the New Hampshire Lottery Commission. The winner, who remains anonymous as a result of a court ruling in her favor, announced through representatives that she will be donating $250,000 to local organizations. Girls Inc. will receive $150,000 and $33,000 will go to three chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger. QOL Score: +1 Comment: According to the release, this is just the start of the winner’s charitable giving; she reportedly has plans to give about $50 million to various charities.

Air pollution report shows good results

The latest air pollution status report by New Hampshire Environmental Services reflects positive improvements over the past 28 years. According to a press release, New Hampshire’s air pollutant concentrations are down between 70 and 90 percent since 1990. The state is in compliance with all federal outdoor exposure standards, and issues with things like acid rain, mercury and nitrogen deposition have also improved significantly. QOL Score: +1 Comment: Despite the overall positive trends, portions of New Hampshire still exceed federal health thresholds for ozone and come close to similar thresholds for fine particle pollution.

March madness dances to different tune My question today is, when is enough enough? I know, that brings to mind Bill Clinton’s famed utterance “that depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is” while trying to wriggle off the hook from the pickle he put himself in with Monica Lewinsky. Beyond that, they have one other thing in common. Give up? It has to do with when do you give up when a person or institution you supported has done enough for you to finally say enough is enough. In the case of the Democrats they never did. They rationalized and/or looked past the married president being such a pathetic lech as to “not have sexual relations” with a 20-something intern, at least by his definition. Then after it faded away, he and his wife became rock stars in the party and look what that produced — the only candidate in the history of mankind who could have lost to Donald Trump. All I can say about that is sometimes people get what they deserve. I bring this up because the NCAA Basketball Tournament gets underway this week, under the latest the-ends-justifies-the-means dark cloud of cheating in quest of the holy grail of money, fame and winning at all costs, something that has pushed me to the brink of saying enough is enough. That’s quite a statement for me to make since I once loved the tournament where I’ve rooted for Princeton with Bill Bradley, UCLA during the glory days, Dean Smith and UNC — starting when Mitch Kupchak from my HS league went there — and Duke until they gave in to one and done. There were bad guys — Houston and Elvin Hayes, UNLV (boo, hiss) with Tark, DePaul in the Mark Aguirre era, Bobby Knight after he turned really crazy, and lately with the arrival of petulant Grayson Allen (Duke). I mean if you’re the most \despised person in the history of the program that spawned Christian

Laettner you’re one step above axe murderer, aren’t you? There were also short-term affections — Larry Bird and Indiana State, Magic and MSU, Patrick Ewing even amid Hoya Paranoia at Georgetown and later Butler, where if Gordon Hayward’s half-court buzzer shot vs. Duke falls, it passes Laettner from the top of key to beat Kentucky as the greatest ending ever. I’ve been lucky enough to go to many Final Fours. The best was Ewing vs. Olajuwon in the 1984 final. I don’t want to be a buzzkill. If you grew up with college basketball the way it is now that’s all you know. But I’m having a tough time looking past the lunacy CBS and TNT won’t talk about. Focusing instead on the pageantry, tradition and great games. I could just be a grouchy old man, but then again, I could have a point thanks to the following issues. Lust for Money: Coaches make $6 million per, the NCAA a billion, while kids get zero. Second, coaches break contracts to leave after promising kids they’ll be there as long as they play for him. The one that caught my attention this year is the tradition-rich, Southern-centered ACC Tournament being played for big bucks in Brooklyn! Yeah, conference makeups are different now, but give me a break. Conference Realignment: I don’t know who’s in what conference anymore. When the ACC and Big East were eight-team leagues it was easy to follow. I lost interest when Louisville and Notre Dame joined the Big East. Wouldn’t the Big 10 — which now has Rutgers (I think) and ACC-born Maryland — have been a better fit for ND? I even heard a rumor Creighton was in the Big East, but I’m not sure if that was true. But who could possibly care about a team from Nebraska if you live here? Hypocrisy: Indiana loves Bobby Knight, who threw chairs onto the court, kicked players and grabbed another by the throat, but thinks Tom Brady is a villain for (supposedly) letting a little air out of the balls in Deflate-gate. You tell me who’s worse, Knight or TB-12. Over 10,000 Kentucky bas-

ketball fans canceled their Lexington Courier subscriptions after reporting in the late ’80s that the ACT scores of Eric Manuel were fixed and Chris Mills’ dad was paid $15k to go there. After allegedly being heard on a FBI recording discussing a $100,000 payment for a recruit, Sean Miller got a standing ovation before a game last week in Arizona. In many corners of college basketball the credo is cheating’s OK, just don’t get caught. Hiring Practices: Coach Cal has two Final Four trips vacated for serious infractions and Kentucky shouts, “Welcome!” Why? Because he wins. And whose name is surfacing for the vacant Georgia job? Incredibly, Rick Pitino, not six months after he was fired at Louisville for a laundry list of infractions. Why? Well, you know the answer. Sorry, that just doesn’t seem right to me. The NCAA: Kids want to transfer they have to sit out a year. But coaches committing serious sports crimes just go elsewhere to earn eight figures the next year. Seems to me it should be reversed. Why? Because so many coaches were trying to steal players that needed to make that decision tougher. So who gets hurt? The kids and not the grown-ups doing the cheating. Makes perfect sense. One and Done: It’s no one’s fault. College basketball is held hostage by NBA rules, and given how much money can be made if you get there, who can blame anyone going to the NBA as soon as they can? It just hurts the game, that’s all. The Quality: One and done siphons off the top 20 freshmen each year. That means today you’re missing the best 60 who would’ve been in the tournament years ago. If you like it, fine. But I see less maturity and more mistakes, making it seem more like a super AAU tournament than a collegiate national championship. Add all that up and I’ve got “enough is enough” issues. Not giving up totally, but I’m on the brink. Email Dave Long at

BG girls earn three-peat The Big Story: Make it three straight Division I basketball titles for the Bishop Guertin girls. It was a little harder this time. The 5-seed Cardinals earned the three-peat after handing Bedford its first loss of the season in a 52-50 semifinals win over Bedford and with a 54-34 win over Pinkerton Academy in the final, where Erin Carney had a team-high 14 for BG, while Brooke Kane had 18 points for the Astros.

Arguably the greatest athletic performance of the 20th century. Bill Clinton: Ethically challenged politician who remains beloved in Democratic Party circles. Revisionists paper over the fact that third party candidate Ross Perot siphoned off 18 percent of Republican votes from George H. W.

Whether your passion is painting, playwriting or another artistic medium, there are all kinds of opportunities in New Hampshire to promote, exhibit and sell your work: artist associations, craft leagues, cooperative theater groups, writers’ organizations — even a state-run film office. The local arts community shared tips on how to take your creative hobby to the next level and get your work out into the world. BRANCHING OUT Ginnie Lupi, director of the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, said a willingness to come out from behind your easel or computer screen and join a creative community is crucial if you want your work to be noticed. While it can be difficult to stand out among other artists, a competitive spirit will only hinder your success. “We have a small population, but an incredible density of people doing creative work in the state, which means opportunities can be competitive, but it also builds community, and with community comes more opportunity,” Lupi said. “For a lot of HIPPO | MARCH 15 - 21, 2018 | PAGE 12

artists and writers who work in solitude, reaching out can be really helpful.” The State Council on the Arts is a good place to start making connections and finding opportunities. On the first Tuesday of each month, they update their online E-Opps listing, which includes open calls, competitions, jobs and internships, fellowships and residencies, professional development conferences and workshops and more for all kinds of artists in New Hampshire and beyond. You can also call or email the agency and receive personalized guidance to help you move toward your goals. “Helping artists grow and develop in their careers is part of our mission, so don’t be afraid to reach out to us,” Lupi said. “This is something that’s close to our hearts, and we Arts and crafts markets • Concord Arts Market (1 Bicentennial Square, Concord, June through September, • Manchester Craft Market (1500 S. Willow St., Manchester, January through September, • NH Farmers Market Association (, 344-2323)

want to see artists succeed in New Hampshire, so we’re happy to help.” If your town has its own arts commission, that can be a valuable resource as well. If you introduce yourself and tell them that you’re an artist looking to share your work, Lupi said, they can keep you in the loop about town festivals and events that have creative opportunities. They may even be able to exhibit your work in the town hall or another public space. Reaching out to your town library may also be beneficial. “Libraries have long been places where artists can find opportunities to build their careers,” Lupi said. “Many have gallery spaces and performance spaces where artists can show their work, and many provide classes and training that could be useful for all artists.” VISUAL ARTS AND CRAFTS Visual artists and craftspeople looking to take the next step can do so in a number of ways. If you’ve never shown or sold your work before and are feeling hesitant, farmers markets and art and craft markets and fairs are a simple, low-pressure way to test the waters without locking yourself into a long-term commitment.

“It’s a great place to start if you have enough products ready to put out on a table,” Kitty Stoykovich, producer of the Concord Arts Market, said. “Don’t be shy about putting yourself out there and trying it to see how it goes.” The Concord Arts Market is a juried outdoor market that runs weekly June through September. Artists and craftspeople of all kinds are welcome to apply, which entails submitting up to three photos of your work for a selection committee to review. “We’re pretty open,” Stoykovich said. “If we can see from your photos that you make your own products and do a good job and are ready to sell, we’ll accept you, but we’re taking you at your word that your work is of good quality, so you need to show up with that quality.” As a market vendor, you should be ready to stand, smile and talk with people about your work. Sitting in silence as people peruse your booth rarely leads to any sales, Stoykovich said. It’s helpful, also, to have an online presence where people can find out more about you and your work, and to have that printed on business cards to hand out at the market. “Having a story is so important these days,” she said. “People come to these markets to meet the artists and find out why they love what they do, so you need to be able to share that. They want to be a part of your story.” Business-wise, markets can be hit or miss; some weeks may be lucrative while other weeks you may sell only one or two items, but the worst things a vendor can do, Stoykovich said, are look angry, complain, or pack up and leave early. “If you leave early, you may miss a huge opportunity,” she said. “You can spend the whole day with few sales only to have someone stop by five minutes before closing and spend enough to make your day, or take your card and go on your website and reach out to you later.” Being featured in a fine art gallery can be difficult if you aren’t an established artist or don’t have the right connections, but there are some galleries that have open calls for artists of all backgrounds and levels of experience,

provided that the artist’s work meets the gallery’s standards. Granite Town Gallery in Milford periodically has exhibitions for which anyone can submit artwork. “We generally focus on professional artists … but we’re always looking for new talent, too, so we have less restrictive opportunities that are more for-fun for artists who are just starting out to get their feet wet and get their work up on the wall,” gallery owner Kimo Lee said. To be accepted for an exhibition at Granite Town, your work should have compelling subject matter, originality and personal style, and good technique and execution. “Do work that’s good and truthful to who you are,” Lee said. “If you find something that’s important to you as an artist that you can put your heart and soul into, that’s what will bring out your best work.”

Additionally, there are gallery spaces that showcase crafts and functional art, such as Studio 550 in Manchester, which hosts several exhibits and sales each year and has a permanent retail gallery, all of which are open to amateur artists and craftspeople. “You don’t need to have an [art degree]. We accept work based on the work itself,” programs director Monica Leap said. “That work comes from people of all backgrounds. There are plenty of hobby artists with sellable work.” The retail gallery features unique and functional handmade items such as cards, windchimes, jewelry, wearable knits, pottery and more. The key to selling work in a space like Studio 550, Leap said, is presentation. “It’s more appealing if you make it a whole package. If you’re selling cards, for example, don’t just have them loose; put a few together in a plastic sleeve with your business card or a sticker with your logo,” she said. “Make it personal. Make sure people know that it was a person who made this item, not a machine.” If you’re serious about growing as an artist or craftsperson and are willing to make a long-term commitment, joining an association or league can provide all kinds of opportunities to share your work that you wouldn’t have otherwise. The New Hampshire Art Association is a juried art association based in Portsmouth with around 300 members statewide. Members can show their work in exclusive exhibitions and pop-up shows, rent exclusive gallery spaces, join special interest groups and more. NHAA has two membership jurying dates per year, during which prospective members Arts and crafts associations • The Craftworkers’ Guild (Bedford, 472-8109, craftworkersguild/home) • Greater Salem Artists Association ( • Hollis Arts Society (, 345-3462) • Lakes Region Art Association (998-0029, • League of NH Craftsmen (statewide, 224-3375, • Manchester Artists Association ( • Monadnock Area Artists Association (, 903-0969) • Nashua Area Artists Association (6981951, • NHPleinAir (statewide, • NH Art Association (statewide,, 431-4230) • NH Furniture Masters (statewide, 898-0242, • NH Made (statewide,, 679-9800) • NH Society of Photographic Artists (statewide, • Pastel Society of NH (statewide, • Seacoast Artist Association (778-8856, • Women’s Caucus for Art NH Chapter ( HIPPO | MARCH 15 - 21, 2018 | PAGE 14

NHAA; on a jurying date designated for their medium, prospective members present 10 to 12 pieces of their work to a jury of experts. “You have to be prepared to talk about your work and explain your choices and technique to the jury,” LNHC executive director Miriam Carter said. “You have to show that you’ve put in the time and effort to attain a high level of creativity and craftsmanship. You have to have the spirit of a maker, and that should be represented in your body of work.” The jurying process is highly selective, and it’s not uncommon for applicants to be turned down in their first attempt. “We don’t reject; we defer,” Carter said. “Sometimes, it’s hard for people to hear that they aren’t accepted, but the creative process is ongoing, and they’re happy once their work is refined enough and they’re finally accepted.”

present four works of their primary medium to a panel of jurors with expertise in that medium. Jurors will look at the artist’s competence with the medium, originality, composition, professionalism of presentation and consistency of quality in their body of work. Artists who don’t make the cut still receive valuable feedback. “We want our members to stay with us for years and years, so we want to make sure that they have the ability to continue to hone their craft,” NHAA board president Renee Giffroy said. “This isn’t for a beginner just getting into art and trying their hand at different things. This is for artists who are a step beyond that, who know what their focus is and want to delve deeper by joining an organization where they can improve their art, learn from other artists and exhibit and sell their work.” Lisa McManus of Lee became an NHAA member a year and a half ago as a way to connect with the arts community and get eyes on her work. “It’s been really good for me,” she said. “When you’re working [on art] at home, it’s so easy to feel alone and like what you do doesn’t reach anyone else, so it’s nice to be able to share my work with people and have conversations about it. It helps increase my opportunities and pushes me to new levels.” The state’s largest organization for craftspeople is the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, which boasts 750 juried members statewide who work with a variety of media, such as baskets, fiber, clay, glass, jewelry, metal, wood and more. Member benefits include a booth at the Annual Craftsmen’s Fair at Mount Sunapee Resort every summer, which attracts more than 25,000 people; space to show work at the League’s eight fine craft galleries; participation in New Hampshire Open Doors, an annual event that allows craftspeople to open their studios to the public; and more. The jurying process is similar to that of

PLAYWRITING Getting a play from script to stage is no easy feat, but New Hampshire does have a few performance venues and theater companies that are open to producing or providing a space for original plays. Once a year, the Hatbox Theatre in Concord hosts a pitch night, during which local playwrights are given two minutes to propose their play for production in the theater’s mainstage season. “There are a lot of people producing new work, and we want to provide a space and opportunity for them,” Hatbox founder Andrew Pinard said. At a minimum, playwrights who are pitching a play should have a full script ready to present to a review committee. Playwrights who have production experience or already have a production team and production plan have the best chance of being accepted. However, a newbie playwright with nothing more than a script may be considered if the script really impresses the review committee. If the play is accepted, the Hatbox may even assist with finding a production team for the playwright. “It’s a competitive process,” Pinard said. “We really want to see something original, with a defined point of view and vision that tells something about the world with a new perspective, but also connects with an audience.” Working Title Productions, a New Hampshire-based theater company formed in 2016 that supports new, original plays, has produced its Granite State Playwrights Workshop at the Hatbox for the last two years after presenting the idea during the pitch night. The Granite State Playwrights Workshop gives two playwrights who have a completed script but aren’t ready to do a fully staged production a chance to work with actors and a director to produce a rehearsed staged reading of their play in front of a live audience that agrees to provide thoughtful feedback. “We created an opportunity for playwrights that didn’t exist,” co-founder and co-artistic

director Amanda Pawlik said. “The reaction of that first audience is important to the workshopping process and can benefit a playwright who is hoping to do a fully mounted production of their play in the future.” Working Title is currently planning a third Granite State Playwrights Workshop and is considering doing a full production of one of the workshopped plays or another original play that has not yet been produced.

FILMMAKING Between hiring a crew, securing shooting locations and marketing and distribution, making a film can be daunting, especially for first-time filmmakers. What many of them don’t know, however, is that New Hampshire has a state division that, as part of its mission, assists filmmakers at every step. “It doesn’t matter what the scope or size of the project is; I work with student filmmakers all the way up to Hollywood filmmakers,” New Hampshire Film Office Director Matt Newton said. “Everyone is equally important here. If you’re one person going at it alone, we’ll have your back just as much as we would a big Hollywood studio.” The best way to start making a film is to look at the Film Office’s online directory of film crew and services. It includes local camera operators, directors, editors, casting and talent resources, hair and makeup and wardrobe professionals, sound specialists, stunt people, production managers and assistants, payroll and production accountants, public relations and many more. “Filmmaking is all about connections and surrounding yourself with a strong group of people,” said Laina Barakat, owner of Wayward Ark Productions in Keene, who has been utilizing the Film Office’s services for a decade. “If you’re doing film as a hobby and want to start taking it more seriously and do a bigger production, the Film Office will tell you how to do it and where to find those people to produce with you.” The most common reason filmmakers turn to the Film Office is shooting location assistance. Newton acts as a liaison between filmmakers and communities and state government to help filmmakers find feasible shooting locations and acquire permits for road closures and access to public spaces. “If you have a small film, closing a road might sound like a big deal,” Newton said, “but working with us lends more credibility

to your project. We can open doors that you might not be able to open by yourself.” Once your film is complete, it’s time to look for screening opportunities. There are some theaters that occasionally show local independent films, but if your film hasn’t premiered anywhere else and hasn’t developed any local notoriety, getting into those theaters can be a challenge. The best place to start, Barakat said, is with film festivals. There are several in New Hampshire, including the New Hampshire Film Festival, SNOB Film Festival, DRAFT Fest and others. “You have to get into festivals as a filmmaker. That’s part of the ABC’s of filmmaking,” she said. “That’s how you create your local fan base.” The Film Office can also offer guidance about how to distribute your film and will even directly promote it on their social media. “Never be afraid to ask,” Newton said. “So many filmmakers are afraid to ask because they feel like they aren’t good enough, and they never realize what a valuable resource they have here in New Hampshire.” WRITING For any writer looking to get published, a writers network like the New Hampshire Writers’ Project or the Poetry Society of New Hampshire can be invaluable. “You have to take that first step of getting away from your desk and getting out there to find other writers to share your work with and get feedback,” New Hampshire Writers’ Project chair Masheri Chappelle said, “and we provide opportunities for writers, whether they’re a hobby Film resources and festivals • DRAFT Fest (April, Derry, • NH Division of Film and Digital Media ( • NH Film Festival (October, Portsmouth, • NH Jewish Film Festival (statewide, March, • Rochester Independent Film Festival (June, • SNOB Film Festival (November, Concord,

writer or a professional writer, to do that in a way that’s supportive and nurturing.” Anyone can join the NHWP and take advantage of its members-only writing groups, competitions and workshops. Workshops have covered a variety of topics, such as political writing, flash fiction, middlegrade fiction, self-publishing, editing, online writers tools and more. NHWP also hosts the state’s largest writing conference, 603: The Writers’ Conference, formerly known as NH Writers’ Day, every spring, where writers can attend panel talks and workshops with renowned authors. “We try to provide the tools and opportunities for writers for keep their inspiration alive and to hone their craft and be the best they can be,” Chappelle said. Even if you decide to go the self-publishing route — and most NHWP members do, Chappelle said — you should go through the process as if you were submitting your work to an outside publisher. A crucial part of that process is hiring an editor and a copy line editor to help refine your work and get it to a level of quality that an outside publisher would require. NHWP is currently putting together a directory of local editors for hire to help members take that step. A writers network can also connect you with “beta readers,” people with varying levels of writing expertise who are willing to read your work at each stage and offer feedback. “The process doesn’t end with a draft. That’s just the beginning. It takes dedication and many drafts and revisions and finding those key people to help you create a finished product,” Chappelle said, “but once it’s finally published, there’s nothing more rewarding than being able to say, ‘I created that.’”

NHIA celebrates astrophotography exhibition By Angie Sykeny

As a kid growing up in the 1970s, Ed Ting would make the rounds to office buildings in town, asking for lenses from non-functioning photocopiers to make his own telescopes. As a student at the University of Illinois, the school’s observatory became his second home; the intrigue of the night sky, for him, was endless. That’s when he started doing astrophotography. It was an entirely different art then than it is today; the analog method was tedious and often frustrating when, for example, a onehour exposure would be ruined in its final moments by an airplane flying into the shot. “It’s not like vinyl records or something from the past that people want to return to,” Ting said. “No astrophotographer yearns for those days. The digital age has been great for us and has made all the difference.” Around 30 pieces of Ting’s astrophotography work from the last few years will be Astrophotography: Art in Science When: On view March 16 through April 21, with an opening reception on Friday, March 16, from 5 to 7 p.m., and an artist talk on Saturday, March 24, at 7 p.m. Where: Roger Williams Gallery, New Hampshire Institute of Art, 77 Amherst St., Manchester More info:, 241-4918

featured in a new solo exhibition, “Astrophotography: Art in Science,” opening Friday, March 16, at the New Hampshire Institute of Art. The exhibition is divided into two types of astrophotography: planetary, which includes images of the moon, planets and other celestial bodies within our solar system; and deep space, which includes images of distant galaxies and nebulae beyond our solar system. Each type has its challenges and requires a different process. In planetary astrophotography, it’s easy to focus on a chosen subject because they can be seen easily with a telescope, some even by the naked eye. Because the subjects are so close to Earth, however, there tends to be a lot of shimmering and twinkling from the atmosphere that can ruin the clarity of a photograph. To capture a clear image, Ting uses a webcam inside a telescope and takes a video. Then, he picks out the clearest stills and stacks them together to create one clearer image that requires little to no post-processing. Deep sky astrophotography, Ting said, is more of a guessing game, because the subjects aren’t immediately visible. The process is closer to analog in that the camera shutter has to remain open for an extended period of time to capture an image. During that time, the image, transmitted on a computer screen, appears blank, and the outcome is impossible to predict. “The worst part is you don’t know if you’re

in focus or not. You can do everything right but be out of focus, and no one can say for sure how to focus correctly,” Ting said. “It’s a lot of trial and error. A lot of mistakes are made before you get a good result.” The artistic aspect of astrophotography lies in the post-processing phase, particularly for deep sky shots, which can include striking, colorful nebulae. The challenge is to reconcile the color that shows up on camera and the color that the eye sees. For example, if a red nebula isn’t bright enough, it may appear green to the naked eye, but red on camera because a camera is more sensitive to color. Sometimes, even on camera, the color will barely show up at all. “If the raw image doesn’t look good, you

can tease out the color in Photoshop,” Ting said. “You wind up trying to strike a balance between realism and what looks good on print.” Formerly the president of the New Hampshire Astronomical Society, Ting is a well-known amateur astronomer in New Hampshire and beyond. He speaks frequently on astronomy and astrophotography around the country and has had his writings published in a number of astronomy magazines. He currently teaches astrophotography, English composition and creative writing at NHIA. He will give an artist talk about “Astrophotography: Art in Science” on Saturday, March 24.

Cosplay, video games and anime come together in a celebration of geek culture at Queen City Kamikaze, happening on Saturday, March 17, at Manchester Memorial High School. The day-long comic convention will feature a cosplay contest, video game and tabletop game tournaments, live game shows, panels and workshops, vendors and more. Queen City Kamikaze started eight years ago as a small event hosted by the high school’s video game and anime clubs. This year, thousands of people are expected to attend. “There are people who come just for the cosplay contest, people who come for the card gaming, and people who just come to see everything,” Jeff Normandin, co-founder and co-organizer of the convention, said. “Even if you don’t consider yourself geeky or nerdy, you can enjoy it. There will be a mix of something for everyone.” One of the event’s main attractions is the cosplay contest, held in the auditorium, which invites participants to dress up as a character from an anime, comic or video game. There are three categories. The craftsmanship category is for cosplayers who made at least half of their costume, props and accessories themselves. The performance category gives cosplayers a chance to perform a skit, song or dance. The just-for-fun category is non-competitive and open to

all cosplayers who simply want to show off their costume on stage. More than 80 vendors will be set up in the gymnasium selling original art prints, plushies, stickers, knick knacks and more. Normandin said the event gives up-and-coming artists who are new to the comic convention scene a chance to try it out before committing to a larger convention. “We try to make it that entry-level convention that’s more accessible to them and cheap to set up a table,” he said. “They can get some exposure and see what to expect at a convention and see how people react to their work.” For the first time this year, the opportunity to propose and run a panel or workshop was open to the general public. “We wanted to make people feel like they’re a part of this and that they have some stake in it,” Normandin said. “It’s cool for people to be able to say, ‘Come see my panel.’” The panels and workshops will cover a variety of topics including corsetry, fanfiction, writing story characters and conflicts, anime tropes history, cosplay on a budget, cosplay photography, photo editing and more. Gamers can get a dose of nostalgia with retro video game systems like Atari, Intellivision and Nintendo set up throughout the halls. There will also be video game tournaments for more modern games like Dragon Ball Fighter Z on Xbox One and Super Smash Bros. on WiiU.

While it’s not as big as some of the regional conventions like Anime Boston, Normandin said, Queen City Kamikaze is a great option for people who are looking for something more local and

low-key. “There are people who love the huge, full weekend conventions and there are people who just want to go for a day and have fun and go home, ” he said. “What’s nice about ours is the sense of community that has developed.

Go organic?

Why to grow flowers organically By Henry Homeyer



When I mentioned to an acquaintance that I not only grow my vegetables with organic methods, but my flowers, too, he looked at me funny and asked, “Why? Are you going to eat your peonies?” No, I don’t eat my peonies, but I do believe they are healthier and produce better than they would be if I used chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Mother Nature has been growing green plants for 100 million years or more, and never once has she needed a 50-pound bag of 10-10-10, a bottle of herbicide to spray on weeds or a bag of insecticide. Chemical companies have been promoting their products for 100 years or more, and some chemicals can increase flower size or help to quickly improve bad soils. But they come with liabilities, too. Chemicals added to your lawn or garden may inhibit the growth and viability of beneficial microorganisms. Most chemical fertilizers are composed of salts of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Salts dry out living tissue and can easily kill microorganisms. Too much fertilizer can dry out and kill root hairs of your precious plants, too. Plants thrive in soils that are biologically active: soils that are full of beneficial fungi, bacteria, protozoa. I read once that a teaspoon of healthy soil can contain 5 billion bacteria, 20 million filamentous fungi and a million protozoa. Those improve soil tilth and fertility. Some gardeners tend to think of fungi and bacteria as bad: they think of fungi as the mildews and molds that disfigure garden phlox or leaves on lilac bushes. But in the soil there are more good bacteria and fungi than bad. Chemical fertilizers have just three useful elements: nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. The rest is filler. Organic bagged fertilizers are made from things like ground oyster shells and peanut hulls, dried seaweed and perhaps dried blood. So organic fertilizers have a wide range of useful minerals used by plants. Let’s look at some of those ingredients. Nitrogen, the first number on a bag, is the key additive in fertilizers, as it promotes green growth. Unfortunately, chemical fertilizers often have so much soluble nitrogen that it can push plants to grow too fast. Think gawky teenage boy who grows 6 inches in one summer. Plants that grow too fast are often weak and susceptible to insects and diseases. It has been proven that too much nitrogen actually attracts insects to plants. Organic fertilizers have a mix of soluble fertilizer and time-release fertilizer. In ProGro, the fertilizer I use most often, about 75 percent of the nitrogen is released over time, and is made most available in warmer weather when plants are most active. That’s good.

A chemical fertilizer can largely wash away in a week of rain. Phosphorus, the middle number on a bag of fertilizer, is good for promoting growth of roots, fruits and flowers. It is commonly available as phosphate, and can pollute streams and rivers, causing algal bloom in lakes. Rock phosphate is a slow-releasing form that is commonly used in organic fertilizers. Rock phosphate is slowly broken down by acids produced by fungi that coat roots of plants. Potassium, the third number on the bag, helps plants to produce thick cell walls and protect them against dehydration and very cold temperatures. It is also involved in carbohydrate metabolism and cell division. In a bag of organic fertilizer are many other ingredients including calcium, magnesium and sulfur. These are called secondary macronutrients because they are not needed in the quantities of the three listed above. Calcium is involved in pH regulation of the soil and in cell metabolism and building proteins. Magnesium of part of the chlorophyll molecule involved in photosynthesis. Sulfur is necessary for making proteins and fats. It is what gives onions their bite. What else is in an organic fertilizer? Iron, chlorine, manganese, zinc, copper, boron, molybdenum and nickel. These are called micronutrients as they are used in very small quantities, but each is important to plants. They are not included in a chemical fertilizer. Compost, which is made from once living beings or stuff produced by them — whether manure or leaves, for example — contains the minerals cited above. It also improves soil structure and a soil’s ability to hold moisture and drain well. Adding compost is key to getting great soil. You can buy it by the truckload, or by the bag. Compost sold in bags should smell like good earth. It if smells like fresh manure or sulfur, you don’t want it. It’s too early for soil improvement, but spring will be along soon. Don’t do much until the soil dries out. My garden does well each year and I am rarely troubled by insect pests. I believe that the moderate growth promoted by compost and organic fertilizer is a key reason for my “good luck” in the garden Visit


Dear T, I am more than happy to share your story and see if there is anything we can do to help. I myself have seen these markers in my own shop and at outdoor sales, etc. I have to say I never considered they might be stolen from a grave that so deserved it. I’m glad to hear that there are people out looking for such items to return. That’s an honorable thing to do. Please, if any of our readers have or see them in your travels feel free to call me at my shop or drop them off and I will get them to

T. No questions asked. Any help would be appreciated. Note: Taking them to a scrap place would bring little to no money for the metal (brass). This marker is from 1861-1865, the musket is for the Infantry, anchor is for the Navy, F for Fidelity, L is for loyalty and C is for charity. They might not all be identical to this one but similar, and they are usually stars.

Dear Donna, I am hoping you can help me create some awareness within the community. I recently purchased one of these war grave markers at a shop. The only way that could happen is if someone removed it off a grave, unfortunately. I belong to a Civil War talk group and we look out for such markers all the time to place them back again. I am sending you a photo to hopefully show people what we are looking for and why. It’s so important that we try to find as many as we can and replace them back to military graves. I guess when metals were higher people even took them for scrap. Awful but done often and we now can’t replace them. Others got out into the market and sell anywhere from $50 to $60.

How did engine survive broken timing belt? Just plain luck Dear Car Talk: I had a 1991 Civic. At 105,000 miles, the timing belt broke while we were driving. I pulled off to the side of the road — the By Ray Magliozzi cold, dark, middle-of-nowhere, Indiana road — and just to make sure to do the worst thing I possibly could do, I then cranked the engine. Everyone said that if the valves weren’t ruined right when the belt broke, I definitely ruined them by cranking the engine. I happened to find a mechanic who agreed to put on a new belt and just try and see if it would work. It worked fine, and lasted another 125,000 miles. But why did it work? Everything I’ve read and everyone I’ve talked to has said that this car had an interference engine. But it survived a broken timing belt and worked fine (until it was destroyed by a Jeep, but that’s another story). Can you explain this miracle? — David Luck. You should have run right out and bought a lottery ticket after the

Award Winning Event Dressing

Civic started, David. I’d say in 95 percent of cases, when a timing belt breaks on a car with an interference engine (where the valves and pistons can collide if things go wrong), at least one of the valves gets crushed, and you end up having to rebuild the entire cylinder head. But in order for that to happen, one of the valves has to be pretty much all the way open inside the cylinder when the belt breaks, so a rising piston can crush it. And in about 5 percent of cases, the belt just happens to break during one of those few nanoseconds when none of the valves is fully opened. So you just completely lucked out in terms of where the valves were positioned at the moment the belt broke. And your mechanic did absolutely the right thing. You might as well put on a new belt and try it. Even though there’s only a small chance that the engine survived, a belt costs just a few bucks and takes an hour or so to install. If the car starts, you’d be the happiest guy in middle-of-nowhere Indiana that day. And if it doesn’t work, you already have your

new belt ready for when you finish rebuilding the cylinder head. As my late brother would have said: “You must have lived a good, clean life” up to that point, David. As to what you were up to when the Jeep hit you, I guess that’ll have to remain a mystery. 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

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.

Learn about organic food at annual winter conference By Matt Ingersoll

News from the local food scene

By Matt Ingersoll

Foodies looking for advice on organic products and home gardeners seeking guidance and networking opportunities can find it all at the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire winter conference. The 16th annual day-long event will be held at Merrimack Valley High School in Penacook on Sunday, March 18, with more than 40 workshops, as well as a Green Market exhibitor fair, book signings with local authors on topics related to organic farming, and a keynote speaking event and Q&A session. “There is different programming for people who are home gardeners or even for people who are just interested in organic food,” winter conference coordinator Monica Rico said. “It’s a good opportunity to learn … current trends within the organic farming community.” Workshops are split into four sessions, each with about 10 to 14 workshops on a variety of topics. Attendees choose each workshop based on one of 10 tracks; for example, the Health and Nutrition track features workshops with topics like the benefits of having a plant-based diet, while other tracks are Beginning Farmers or Agricultural Business, with workshops like the best practices in greenhouse growing, carbon farming and beekeeping. “A lot of the workshops are sort of just innovative practices that people may not have heard of or tried before, and [the presenters] are sharing their expertise,” Rico said. Beginning at 1:15 p.m., a panel discussion about organic farming will be held. Panelists will include New Hampshire orchardist and author Michael Phillips and Roger Noonan

• Fire away: After months of renovating and preparation, a new local craft meadery and cidery is scheduled to open for business this week. Ancient Fire Mead & Cider (8030 S. Willow St., Building No. 1, Manchester) will open the doors of its taproom to the public for the first time on Thursday, March 15, at 4 p.m., and will be open every Thursday and Friday from 4 to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The business is spearheaded by husbandand-wife team Jason and Margot Phelps and will feature a lineup of session meads like “Feeling the Love” (made with passion fruit and hops), “Rogue Flywheel” (with pineapple and chiles), “Orange You Happy?” (with orange and vanilla) and several others. A small food menu will include light options like a house-made cheese dip with crackers, a cheese and meat plate, a chicken and ranch wrap with mixed greens, and other bagged snacks. Ciders will be added to the mix in the future, and tours of the production room are planned for every Saturday. Visit or call 203-4223 for more details. • Irish feast: Join Arlington Street United Methodist Church (63 Arlington St., Nashua) for a corned beef and cabbage public supper on Saturday, March 17, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The meal will include corned beef and cabbage, served with boiled potatoes, carrots, turnip, bread, and your choice of beverages and desserts.

An ongoing Green Market Fair will also be held during the conference and will feature more than 40 local craft vendors, demonstrations and other exhibitors, like the New Hampshire Food Alliance, Small & Beginner Farms of New Hampshire, Green Century Capital Management, ReVision Energy and others. During the fair, there will be raffle tickets available for purchase for the chance to win prizes, and a seed swap where growers will have the chance to meet and exchange seeds with others. “The fair is usually a combination of organic agricultural suppliers and other local food producers selling their products,” Rico said. MainStreet BookEnds of Warner, one of the table vendors at the Green Market Fair, will feature books published by several authors who will be at the conference. Twenty percent of the book sales will benefit NOFA-NH and there will be opportunities to get the books signed as well. Featured authors also include Michael Phillips, as well as organic beekeeping specialist Ross Conrad and sustainable agriculture professor Philip Ackerman-Leist of Green Mountain College in Vermont. The day will culminate with an appearance by keynote speaker Dr. Daphne Miller. Rico said she will speak at 5 p.m. and participate in a short Q&A session with audience members from 6 to 6:15 p.m. “Her focus is on look at the relationship of what we eat with the health of our soil, so that’s what she will be discussing,” she said.

Gourmet goodness

Specialty foods, cocktails and more at Gourmet Fest By Matt Ingersoll

From pork sliders and lamb meatballs to tuna tartare, sushi and butternut squash ravioli, you never know what kinds of foods you’ll come across at The Front Door Agency’s Gourmet Festival & Auction. The event is returning for a 30th year Sunday, March 25, at the Nashua Country Club and will feature more than a dozen local restaurant, beverage and dessert vendors, in addition to a silent auction and a live auction. Front Door Agency media relations manager Lucie Bryar described the festival as more “like an upscale cocktail party” rather than a simple sit-down dinner with drinks. “It’s unique in the sense that all of these restaurants are donating their time and product [for the festival] and the chefs all attend, so there’s an opportunity to meet them, to talk with them and to mingle with people,” Bryar said. “That’s one of the things we hear quite often from people who have attended in the past that they like, is the fact that you’re not just stuck at a table. It makes it a bit more fun.” Bryar said while they try to introduce new restaurants each year, many have been attending for years — or even decades, like MT’s Local Kitchen & Wine Bar. Some that have joined in recent years include 110 Grill, Burtons Grill of Nashua and Fratello’s, she said. “We don’t ask them specifically what to bring, other than a main course or a dessert at that level for those who strictly do desserts,” she said. “It’s different every year, but always delicious. It always turns out very nice.” Past dishes have include risottos, tuna and steak tartare, lamb meatballs, and usually a sushi dish provided by You You Japanese Bistro in Nashua. For drinks, there will be opportunities to sample different wines and rums from vendors like Southern Wine & Spirits of New England, Djinn Spirits and Pine State Beverage Co. But the festival is not just about the food. During the sampling portion of the event, a silent auction will provide opportunities to win all kinds of certificates and items donated by local businesses. “Part of what we try to do in the auction is give away unique experiences that you can’t just go to the store and buy,” Bryar said. “We’ve done private cooking classes with our chefs that have attended the festival, for example.” Other prizes have included certificates for stays at the Omni Mt. Washington Resort, massage certificates, wine baskets and more. The live auction portion of the event occurs in the ballroom at 6 p.m., according to Bryar, and often includes even larger

prizes that attendees will bid on. “The big one is a trip to Ireland,” she said, “and then we’ve got things like Red Sox tickets and concert tickets to Kenny Chesney and Taylor Swift.” Proceeds benefit programs at The Front Door Agency, a nonprofit that provides transitional housing for single moms and children, and for people who are homeless, to help them find jobs and housing. Bryar said at the end of the night, a client speaker will tell her story of how the organization has helped her. 30th Annual Gourmet Festival & Auction When: Sunday, March 25, 4 to 8 p.m. Where: Nashua Country Club, 25 Fairway St., Nashua Cost: $85 per person (buying tickets ahead of time is recommended, though tickets will be sold at the door if they are still available on the day of the event).

perishables Tasty food from fresh ingredients

Sheet-pan dinners If you love to cook but hate to clean up, sheet-pan dinners are for you. I enjoy putting together meals for my family but at the end of the day wish I could snap my fingers and make the mess disappear. I’ve found several recipes for dinners only involving one pan and they are giving me life right now. I just line a sheet pan with tin foil or parchment paper, layer on my food and bake. It’s glorious. In previous columns I’ve shared recipes for pork chops and salmon using only one pan to cook these proteins and at least one side and now I’m on to chicken. The dinner I’m sharing today is delicious, easy and a crowd-pleaser. And for a newly minted family of five, crowd-pleasers are key. This recipe is a play off of stir-fry. You simply take the chicken and vegetables you’d be adding to a stir-fry, layer them on a sheet pan and add your favorite sauce. While stir-fry is quite easy to begin with, making it this way means that I can prep Sheet Pan Stir-Fry Adapted from 2 chicken breasts, cut into small strips About 5 cups assorted chopped vegetables (I recommend onions, peppers, carrots, broccoli, and Bok Choy) Sauce of choice — use something you have or make one: 4 tablespoons tamari sauce or liquid aminos 4 tablespoons sweetener like honey, brown sugar or coconut sugar

it and then forget about it. Stir-fry, as the name suggests, requires constant stirring and attention, which isn’t always easy for me to give at dinnertime these days. The best thing about this recipe is that all the ingredients are fresh. If you’re at the end of your week and need to empty out your fridge, just throw anything you have on the pan. In my experience, nearly everything can work. Plus, with all the produce we waste in this country (various studies put it between 30 to 40 percent), it’s good to have a backup plan for extra food. In fact, I will make this meal at the end of the week when I can see what remains in the fridge. — Allison Willson Dudas

Barrel tastings are some of my favorite wine events because you have an opportunity to try wines right from the barrel (or tank). Several Seacoast area wineries recently held their third annual barrel tasting weekend and it was another great opportunity to meet the winemakers, hear more about what they do and, of course, taste some wines in various stages of the aging process. My friends and I only made it to three stops on the wine trail this year due to time constraints and weather, but enjoyed each one. I hadn’t been to Flag Hill Distillery & Winery in Lee in quite some time, but was looking forward to trying some of their newer offerings, including the red plum, tart cherry and sparkling wines. While we waited for the next tour, we sampled a couple wines. My overall favorite was the Sparkling Cayuga. I like Cayuga wine, and their version of it already, but the bubbles stepped it up a notch. This is a great wine for brunch, for a special occasion, or anytime really! I also liked the sparkling apple cranberry, which is a great wine for holidays like Thanksgiving, but this would be a great brunch wine as well. Once on the tour with owner and distiller Brian Ferguson, we had the chance to try a couple of wines from the barrel, including 2017 Marechal Foch in once used oak, 2016 Marechal Foch in new oak and 2017 La Crescent. Ferguson explained that they grow grapes that are hardy enough to survive New Hampshire winters, which results in grapes with higher acidity. Because of this, there are some winemaking styles that make more sense than others. “We look at opportunities with grapes,” he said, noting they have put a lot of energy into their white wines, which are very aromatic. “We asked: How can we make incredible white wines?” Fermentation is stopped early to trap the grapes’ sugars and aromatic qualities. Our second stop was Sweet Baby Vineyard in Hampstead, where owner and winemaker Lewis Eaton was offering amarone and marechal foch from the barrel, and blueberry wine with Flag Hill apple spirits from an aged bourbon barrel. I liked all of these, but especially enjoyed the Minnie’s Bubbles, their first sparkling wine. I have been looking forward

to trying this for a while and had to take a bottle home with me, along with some amarone, which is my all-time favorite. Our third stop was Moonlight Meadery in Londonderry, where they make wine from honey. Here we had the chance to try a cider from the tank, heather blossom mead, a yet unreleased and unnamed mead (apple mead aged in a scotch barrel), and Destiny, their Desire mead (cherry, blueberry and black currant) that is being barrel aged. For some, mead is an acquired taste, but I happen to like it a lot. If you are hesitant to visit because you think that you don’t like it, please know that Moonlight Meadery has a lot of different meads, for all tastes. I wish I had had time to make more stops at Appolo Vineyards in Derry, Zorvino Vineyards in Sandown and Copper Beech in Hooksett during this event, but am already looking forward to next year.

Black Bear Vineyard Open

Black Bear Vineyard in Salisbury is now open for the season on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Stop in and try some of their wines including Seyval, La Crosse, La Crescent, Salisbury Red and Marechal Foch. They also have at least two new red varieties to try: Marquette and Leon Millot. I am looking forward to going back and visiting here again. The property is beautiful and the owners are so nice and welcoming. The last time I visited, it was late in the season of their first year. Due to such a positive response, they were almost out of wine, so I need to get back there for another tasting. For more information, visit their website at

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases

MUSIC, BOOKS, GAMES, COMICS, MOVIES, DVDS, TV AND MORE Deen Ween Group, rock2 (Schnitzel Records) One thing that consistently pops up in my travels is the odd former rocker who’s trying to get a grip on what he or she should be doing, some sort of idea on where to go with his or her music, specifically music that’s old-school, blues-metal, hard-bar-band stuff, you know, microwaved AC/DC or Riot or — okay, let’s just say it, tuneage that sounds like Spinal Tap. There’s really not much that can be done with the hard rock genre, being that all the old arena bands are still touring. But this guy, a 47-year-old dude who’s been making records under the radar since 1990, has an alternative: just forget the big-dollar studios and let it crank. This noisy, vituperative mess of funk, moronblues and plain-old rawk conjures Soundgarden as a blues band (“Showstopper”), Stray Cats as a metal band (a title I can’t print here) and the Stones doing funk while using the effects from “Life in the Fast Lane.” This stuff is cogent, excited but controlled – it’s just filthy, exactly what you’d want from a rock band in the Snapchat era. Note to older rockers who might try this at home: he has a full-time gig as a fishing guide. A+ — Eric W. Saeger Shiffley, Paper Cranes (self-released) The debut album from this Long Island four-piece touches all the indie-pop bases you’d want and does so without apology. The mixture is pretty simple: heavy on the Strokes vibe; hooks that want to be (and can tend to copy) Killers; a patina of Dashboard Confessional that’s mostly owed to singer Alex Ganes’ slightly nerdy tenor, which, when it’s not being family-friendly, can come off like Brandon Flowers. Re-reading all that, I’m in the same boat as you, sensing something that would knock ‘em dead on American Idol — it’s clean as Boyz II Men, but with a few pop-punk numbers and several nods to 1980s synthpop (sans the windmillguitar parts, “Game of States” sounds like a long-lost track from The Cure’s more commercial period if you squint a little). Bearing the caveat that they may be ripping off an emo band here or there that I’ve never listened to, it’s obvious that they can write songs and are aiming for roller-rink supremacy — there’s even a trance bit in here (“Interlude”). Looks good to me. A — Eric W. Saeger

• Anacortes, Washington-based bandleader Phil Elverum looks like someone who hands out Scientology pamphlets to freaked-out normies at airports, but he’s actually an edgy indiefolkie who fronted the band The Microphones, which released an album called Mount Eerie, and that became the band-name he’s been going by for years now. He was married to artist and huge Tintin comics fan Geneviève Castrée, who died in 2016 after giving birth to their first child; she had pancreatic cancer and it was a very sad story; Elverum chronicled his initial shock and reactions in Mount Eerie’s last LP, A Crow Looked at Me, which was largely considered a non-music record. Now Only, the band’s ninth full-length, is set to street on March 16, and the watery, finger-picked-acoustic-guitar single, “Distortion,” continues, in floods of words, Elverum’s inner dialectic on the meaning of death itself, a rush of very personal observations and memories on the subject. • The thing that bugs me about Pitchfork is their selective incisiveness, such as their observing that the Decemberists’ last album, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, was “overlong and under-ambitious.” The problem there: what took Pitchfork so long to notice? That’s been the Decemberists’ MO since the beginning; it wasn’t until they were officially signed on as a cog in the corporate-indie machine that Pitchfork got past the band’s helter-skelter pandering to furries and actually listened to what they were doing. I root for the band’s cultish concepts, sure, and there are passages of their music I dig, but sometimes, honestly, they’re a bit of a chore, like the world would be better served if they were hotel workers or something. That brings us to now, and Be Your Girl, their eighth LP, led off by the single “Severed,” a bloopy cheesefest that evokes the singer from VNV Nation jamming with Postal Service, which would be suicidal for either of them. Am I nuts about it? No, I am not. Do I hate it? No, nobody could. Therein’s the problem, though, see? • Like most big-except-they’re-indie bands, Yo La Tengo is always good for a mixed bag of carefully targeted mixed-baggery. Their latest, There’s A Riot Going On, includes the single — well, it’s not a single, it’s a mix of four preview songs at once, yes, all four mixed together. Take that, people who like listening to music! One sounds like Bon Iver, another tambourine-powered one sounds like Clinic, etc. So random, huh? • And finally we have DC-based rapper/bassist lady Meshell Ndegeocello, with Ventriloquism, her new album! I have no idea who this person is, do you? The single, “Tender Love” sounds like Sade jamming with The Hooters. Would someone actually want that? Asking for a friend. — Eric W. Saeger

The New Hampshire Jewish Film Festival returns for its 10th year March 15 through March 25, with 12 films showing in Manchester, Merrimack, Concord, Portsmouth and Keene. All of the films have a Jewish angle; some have Jewish characters or deal with Jewish history while others were simply created by a Jewish filmmaker. The festival attracts filmmakers from all over the world, including the U.S. Hungary, Japan, Israel, Germany and the Netherlands. Eight of the films will be making their New England or New Hampshire debut. “We try to bring films that people wouldn’t ordinarily see in the cineplex or on TV,” festival volunteer Darren Garnick said. “We believe people should not have to drive into Boston to see indie films.” This year’s lineup includes films from a variety of genres, including documentaries about the Holocaust (Keep Quiet), Sammy Davis Jr. (Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me) and the creators of Curious George (Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George’s Creators); dramas about a Jewish musician and his family who escape from Nazi-occupied Denmark (Across the Waters) and 10 political activists arrested by the apartheid South African government for conspiracy to commit sabotage (An Act of Defiance); and comedies about a group of bed linen salesmen in postwar Germany (Bye Bye Germany) and two people on the autism spectrum who fall in love (Keep the Change). Keep the Change, by filmmaker Rachel Israel of New York, was inspired by Israel’s friend, also the lead actor, and his personal experiences with dating while living on the spectrum. All of the characters in the film who are on the spectrum are played by actors who are on the spectrum. “I thought it would be best to keep it authentic,” Israel said. “We don’t often see a portrayal of people on the spectrum in film who lead their own stories, so I really wanted to make a film about that world that would make people feel a strong connection to these characters.” Some of the screenings will also feature special activities or discussions with guest speakers, such as a historical discussion led by the Keene State College Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies after Across the Waters; a discussion with Autism Bridges and the Birchtree Center after Keep the Change; and a discussion with a few of the local children who befriended the creators of Curious George after Monkey Business. “It’s like the ‘DVD extras,’ but in person,” Garnick said. “It’s great to be able to sit and talk about the film you just saw and experience it again in another way.”

When Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, it was supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime storm. Nevertheless, instances of extreme weather have only increased during the last decade and they are ravaging Americans’ homes. Just last year Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria quickly became three of the costliest storms in U.S. history, and the affected communities are still rebuilding well into 2018. The physical and emotional damage wrought by these storms inevitably brings people together as they support each other during their time of need. The indelible mark of meteorological tragedy and the importance of home are central themes to Robin MacArthur’s debut novel. Heart Spring Mountain tells the story of three generations of Vermont women who live on the titular mountain at various points in time. MacArthur flits through half a dozen characters’ perspectives across 60 years to illustrate how each generation relates to its secluded surroundings in different ways. Our first protagonist is Vale, who left her heroin-addicted mother Bonnie and their Vermont town eight years prior. She blames their isolation for her mother’s vice. However, when her aunt Deb tells her that Bonnie has gone missing during the 2011 Tropical Storm Irene, Vale knows she has to return home to look for Bonnie. Vale has been tending bar in New Orleans for the last few years, and she sees how Hurricane Katrina still haunts her friends and coworkers. Some lost siblings and parents. Others lost their homes. But regret runs deep in everybody who thought they could have done more to help others. Vale doesn’t know if she’ll be able to find her estranged mother, but she has to try. We glimpse Bonnie’s perspective briefly before she goes missing, and then MacArthur rotates through Vale, aunt Deb, and sisters Lena and Hazel to see Vermont through their eyes. Back in 1974, Deb’s friends are dying in Vietnam so she seeks out a commune in rural Vermont, hoping to find an idyllic home away from society. She embraces a self-reliant hippie lifestyle to become closer to the earth. She cherishes nature and can’t stand to see it plundered by pointless war. But her mother-in-law Hazel considers Deb an intruder, thinking that she “wanted to take this place and Hazel’s son in her slender fist and turn it into some kind of fantasy, walk the hillsides in a poetic reverie. But what did she really know about any of it? Of who made those beautiful, now crumbling walls, of the blood and sweat and work that went into these now

overgrowing fields?” Hazel’s great-great-grandfather had settled their family on this hillside in 1803, and she and her sister Lena know all of its secrets. By contrasting Deb’s new appreciation for Heart Spring Mountain and Hazel’s profound love of her ancestral homeland, MacArthur raises the question: when do you get to call someplace home? The truth is that the area where Hazel’s family settled doesn’t belong to them any more than it belongs to Deb. Vermont used to be the home of the Abenaki tribe, so MacArthur threads in some details to hint at the atrocities white settlers committed against Native Americans to steal their land. One minor character is an Abenaki woman who was forcibly sterilized alongside other women in her tribe so the Abenaki lineage couldn’t continue. Vale also discovers that one of her distant grandmothers could have belonged to the Abenaki tribe. Throughout Vale’s childhood, Bonnie had proudly claimed that their family had Native American heritage, but Vale had always thought Bonnie was appropriating Native American culture. Now that Bonnie’s Abenaki lineage turns out to be true, Vale suddenly feels drawn to the hills, the trees and the creek that she had hated as a child. It feels distasteful for a mostly white character to suddenly appreciate nature because her many-greats-grandmother may have been Abenaki, when in reality most of her relatives would have driven the tribe from their own homeland. Although MacArthur’s attempt to incorporate this Native American history feels a little clumsy, it is commendable for her to try to ensure it lives on. There are many generations who have called this place home, and not all of them have voices anymore. MacArthur manages to juggle the different perspectives with ease so you don’t lose sight of each character’s goals and shortcomings, despite the time-hopping. She threads the decades together by taking stock of the other tropical storms, extreme weather events and natural disasters that were happening around the world during each time period. This forces the characters to then take stock of their own lives and gain their own unique appreciation for Heart Spring Mountain. Hazel is born with her appreciation, Deb seeks hers out, and Vale finds hers along the way. Perhaps they smooth over some interpersonal relationships that they otherwise wouldn’t have tried to repair. MacArthur’s message is clear — let bygones be bygones, because when tragedy strikes, the support from the people in our communities is how we survive. B — Katherine Ouellette

A Wrinkle in Time (PG)

A young teenage girl travels the universe to find her father in A Wrinkle in Time, a visually dazzling adaptation of the book from director Ava DuVernay.

frey). It’s time to go look for your father, they tell Meg and whisk the children off on a trip through the galaxy. When Mrs. Which first appears, she is several stories high and someone suggests that she isn’t the right size. She replies in a very Oprah-like way that she didn’t know there was a right size. And that, to some degree, is the ruling principle of the movie. The scifi, like the visuals, is the cheese sauce on the broccoli (delicious, well-prepared broccoli but still) that is a message about the bigness of the universe and the inherent worthiness of each individual, especially the tweenager who might worry that extra pounds or the wrong hair or parental disapproval means that they are unworthy of friends or love or understanding. Neither your flaws nor your talents define you, the movie says; it’s how you use those flaws or talents. It’s been a while since I’ve read A Wrinkle

in Time — at this point, I basically remember that I read it and that the book was my first experience with “the answer is love”type solution to a science-fiction or fantasy puzzle. The movie handles this baked-in squishiness perfectly fine and the movie makes for a perfectly fine kids’ story — for older elementary school kids, maybe 10 or 11 years old, and up. (Common Sense Media, a pretty good measurement of these things, pegs the appropriate age at 10 and up.) The scariness of the It, the evil mind that is expanding darkness across the universe including into the hearts of humans on Earth (and is voiced, apparently, by David Oyelowo), and the whole missing parent situation (not to mention the girl-on-girl psychological warfare) would seem to push this to the older edge of the PG range. This seems like the perfect age to pile on lessons about decency, self-reliance and self-worth.

In the book, Meg, this story’s lead, is 13, and Storm Reid, the actress who plays her here, is 14. The Meg here reads something like that, somewhere around 11 through 13, with tween/teen angst about her place in the social pecking order (she is the target of a gang of mean girls) and her “flaws” but young enough that her family is still the center of her universe. That family includes her mother, the scientist Kate Murry (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), and her brother, the precocious six-yearold Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe). Then there’s the space where her father, Alex Murry (Chris Pine), also a scientist, used to be. He vanished without a trace four years earlier and his family is in a state of suspension about his disappearance — did he die? Run off? Is he in trouble? One stormy night, an oddly dressed woman calling herself Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon) appears. She is friendly with Charles Wallace and tells Kate that the Murrys’ theory about universe-traveling capabilities of tesseracts is true. Later, Charles Wallace introduces Meg and Calvin (Levi Miller), one of Meg’s few friends at school, to Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), a woman surrounded by piles of books and who speaks only in quotes (Shakespeare, Churchill, Outkast). When Charles, Meg and Calvin all end up in the Murrys’ backyard, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who reappear along with Mrs. Which (Oprah Win-

Which is all to say that A Wrinkle in Time is a good older-kids movie and works fine on that level. I’ve seen a few headlines suggesting that it isn’t blowing the socks off critics or the movie-going public but I don’t know that blowing anyone’s socks off is its mission statement. It fills the cast with solid actors who, by design, all have to take a back seat to the child characters. (Who are also solid, particularly Reid.) It uses Oprah playing essentially the Oprah of the operation, which feels very on the nose but basically works. It states its core beliefs with a frequency that also feels a little on the nose but that I think probably works for the age of its target audience. Again, it’s perfectly fine — and in this case just-fine for the 11-yearold might not satisfy the Gen X-er expecting something transformative. Where this movie really shines is the visuals. I will say that some of the visuals — the sparkly eye makeup on Oprah, Mindy Kaling’s ornate hair pieces — do almost take you out of the movie. The characters are delivering wisdom but I am thinking, wow, that’s a lot of braiding or how do they keep the glitter bits from getting into her eyes. Overall, though, I think the production is able to convey the wonder, otherworldliness and emotion of the story in a way that isn’t, at least to my vague memory of the book, so much a literal translation as a thematic translation. An imagination is at work, here, and I like what this imagination is creating. B Rated PG for thematic elements and some peril. Directed by Ava DuVernay with a screenplay by Jennifer Lee and Jeff Stockwell, A Wrinkle in Time is an hour and 49 minutes long and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

NITE Local music news & events

By Michael Witthaus

• Woofa goofa: Even at the ripe age of 72, Peter Wolf hasn’t lost a step, releasing one of his best solo albums in 2016, A Cure for Loneliness. It’s the 50th anniversary of the J. Geils Band, which he fronted with massive hits like “Love Stinks” and “Centerfold,” but induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame still eludes the Boston group. Wolf mixes solo and Geils hits at his shows. Go Thursday, March 15, 7:30 p.m., Flying Monkey, 39 Main St., Plymouth. Tickets start at $39 — • Local laughter: With a sunny outlook and dedication to his craft, Paul Landwehr has moved steadily up the ladder since his early days honing a solid five minutes at midweek Shaskeen comedy nights. The comic hits a personal milestone with a headlining set in his home town’s biggest venue, which recently expanded to two nights a week of standup. Sam Ike and Tooky Kavanagh also appear. Go Friday, March 16, 8 p.m., Headliners at The Manchester Downtown Hotel, 700 Elm St., Manchester, 988-3673. • Pop time : Those unenticed by corned beef and green beer can enjoy a change of pace with Best Not Broken. The NEMA-winning pop rockers are tuneful and energetic and there’s not a fiddle or bodhran on the stage. The four-piece band recently opened for the Gin Blossoms, and they were a perfect fit for fans of the ’90s rockers. Front man Eric Jackson is a wonderfully talented songwriter, deftly balancing pop and pathos. Go Saturday, March 17, 8 p.m., Biergarten, 221 Daniel Webster Highway, Merrimack, 595-1202. • In harmony: Fans of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings love The Honey Dewdrops. Rooted in the sound of their native South, the married couple sing and play with aching urgency on their most recent album, Tangled Country. Originally from Virginia, they live in Baltimore and tour relentlessly. One critic said their songs “churn like a paddlewheel.” Go Sunday, March 18, 7 p.m., Riverwalk Cafe & Music Bar, 35 Railroad Square, Nashua. Tickets $12 at • Rock hard: An early week metal show stars Soulfly, the Phoenix band led by original Septulara singer Max Cavalera. Known for blending South American rhythms and world music into its heavy and often politically charged sound, the group is expected to release a follow-up to 2015’s Archangel this year. Fellow hard rockers Lody Kong and Uncured open. Go Tuesday, March 20, 7 p.m., Chop Shop, 920 Lafayette Road, Seabrook. Tickets are $25 for the 21+ show at Want more ideas for a fun night out?

Perfect Green Storm Saturday St. Patrick’s Day overflows with fun By Michael Witthaus

It’s said that everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day; nowhere is that more true than in the tavern trade. Authentic pubs typically have a digital clock on the wall counting down the days to March 17. The rest get in on the fun with corned beef and cabbage on the menu and green beer behind the bar, with extra points for Guinness. Those looking to start early can choose between two local concerts by national acts beloved by Celtic music fans. At the Capitol Center for the Arts (44 S. Main St., Concord, 225-1111) Altan plays traditional Irish music. Throughout their career, Altan “has shown unwavering commitment to bringing the beauty of traditional music to contemporary audiences, particularly that of the Donegal fiddlers and singers.” The show is at 7:30 p.m on Thursday, March 15, and tickets are $34.50 to $39.50 at The Seamus Egan Project also appears on Thursday at Dana Center for the Humanities (100 Saint Anselm Drive, Manchester, 6417700). The founding member of the seminal band Solas performs with friends and musical guests, playing selections from his highly regarded catalog along with new songs that haven’t been recorded or performed live. Show is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35.75 for adults. St. Pat’s is bookended with traditional music from Thursday regulars Jeff and Friends, with Janet, Tobin & Crew on Sunday at Beara Irish Brewing (2800 Lafayette Road, Portsmouth, 342-3272), a Seacoast brewery featuring beers made with genuine Irish barley. A ubiquitous presence every St. Patrick’s Day, Jim Barnes, best known as the New Hampshire Irish Balladeer, sings on the day after at Hungry Buffalo (58 Route 129, Loudon, 7983737), which usually offers its special bison corned brisket dinner and chocolate Guinness cake with Baileys frosting. Sunapee Coffeehouse (9 Lower Main St., Sunapee, 446-3426, ext. 11) has an Irish “seisiun” with traditional Irish tunes and songs, and stories about about Ireland’s history and culture. The Friday, March 16, 7 p.m. session has Skip Gorman and Jane Orzechowski on fiddle, Deanna Stiles and Grant Taylor on flute, Tim Travers on button accordion and Vic Reno on guitar and other instruments. Now, on to the big day. • Alan’s (133 N. Main St., Boscawen, 7536631) The St. Pat’s party lasts Friday through Sunday, with Mama Sez playing a benefit show for Town Line Trail Dusters to kick things off on March 16, with Those Guys returning on Saturday, and all you can eat traditional Irish fare all weekend long. • American Legion Post 51 (232 Calef Highway, Epping, 679-8320) The Line Up band playing classic rock ’n’ roll music starting at 8 p.m., $7 per person, and a cash bar will be open. • Area 23 (254 N. State St., Concord, 552-

0137) Sure, there will be plenty of Irish music all day long throughout the state, but Queen City Soul will be in to funk up St. Patrick’s Day in style at this iconic Capitol City spot. • Auburn Pitts (167 Rockingham Road, Auburn, 622-6564) Colossal Reuben sandwiches, corned beef & cabbage dinner with music from Crazy Steve and Friends starting at 7 p.m. • Backyard Brewery & Kitchen (1211 S. Mammoth Road, Manchester, 623-3545, will hold its first annual Kegs and Cabbage St. Patrick’s Day celebration from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The event will feature a buffet with items like corned beef, cabbage, turnips, potatoes, stout lamb stew and pot leek soup, as well as several specialty Irish whiskey cocktails. The Jordan Wysocki Duo will also be playing the Celtic fiddle from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. • The Bar (2B Burnham Road, Hudson, 9435250) There will be live entertainment and a corned beef and cabbage dinner for $12. • Barley House (132 N. Main St., Concord, 228-6363) Step dancers, live Irish session and full Irish menu at this traditional pub, one of the state’s most venerable. • Barley House Seacoast (43 Lafayette Road, North Hampton, 379-9161) The most recently opened BH has the usual corned beef, and Guinness, with step dancers at noon and traditional music from Liz & Dan from 2 to 5 p.m. • Bonfire (950 Elm St., Manchester, 6637678) Downtown country bar joins the fun with WOKQ and WPKQ broadcasting live. Kegs and eggs breakfast and a TBA live band kick things off at 6:30 a.m.; Dan Morgan plays at 9 a.m., followed by Isaiah Bennett at noon, Nicole Knox Murphy at 4 p.m. and Eric Grant Band closing it out starting at 9 p.m. Bar Olympics run from 10 a.m. to noon, with drink specials and food served all day. • Cara (11 Fourth St., Dover, 343-4390) Hibernian Bagpipers kick off a traditional breakfast with black and white pudding, scrambled eggs and beans, followed by Jubilly, Murray Irish Dancers, in rotation throughout the day. DJ SKD also spins tunes. • Castleton Banquet and Conference Center (58 Enterprise Drive, Windham) Comedy

with Lenny Clarke to benefit the Kayla Bertolami Scholarship Fund. Chicken Parmesan or New England boiled dinner will be served. Tickets are $75. • Cheers (17 Depot St., Concord, 228-0180) It’s all about the food at this Concord location, with Irish Stew in a bread bowl and Guinness cupcakes topping the list of St. Patrick’s Day specials. • Chop Shop (920 Lafayette Road, Seabrook, 760-7706) Bite the Bullet, a multi-genre cover band, returns for another St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe they’ll play a Pogues song, or something from U2. • Community Oven (845 Lafayette Road, Hampton, 601-6311) Alan Goodrich performs.

As the 2018 Winter Olympics got underway, and athletes from Russia were forced to compete under the Olympic flag and be designated as “Olympic Athletes from Russia” (OAR) as punishment for systemic doping at the 2014 Games in Sochi, Russian bobsledder Nadezhda Sergeeva proudly wore a T-shirt that read “I Don’t Do Doping.” But on Feb. 23, Sergeeva became the second Russian athlete to fail a doping test. (Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky also failed a drug test earlier in the Games.) Sergeeva was a vocal critic of the Olympic policy toward Russian athletes, telling Yahoo Sports, “If we are here, and we are clean, we should be able to walk under our flag.”

Unclear on the concept

Washington State University senior Logan Tago, a football linebacker, received WSU’s Center for Civic Engagement Fall 2017 Community Involvement award on Feb. 1 for 240 hours of service to the local community, reported the WSU Daily Evergreen — service he was ordered to give as a stipulation of his sentencing in January 2017 for third-degree assault. In June 2016, The Seattle Times reported, Tago allegedly hit a man with a six-pack of beer and later agreed to a plea deal that called for 30 days in the Whitman County jail, $800 in fines — and exactly 240 hours of community service. Tago managed to play the final two games of the 2016 season and in all of 2017’s 13 games, despite a WSU athletic department policy that prohibits players who are facing a felony charge from playing.

Compelling Explanations

On Feb. 9, the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals upheld the four-year prison sentence Ralph Alfred Friesenhahn, 65, of San Antonio received after his fourth DWI conviction in 2016, rejecting arguments from his lawyer, Gina Jones of New Braunfels, that the state’s legal limit for alcohol concentration discriminates against alcoholics, who have a higher tolerance for liquor. “You’re not being punished for being an alcoholic,” Sammy McCrary, chief of the felony division for the Comal County criminal district attorney’s office told the Austin American-Statesman. “It’s the driving that’s the problem.”

Special delivery

At the beginning of February, several residents along a block in Marina, California, were hit by mail thieves. But the criminals probably didn’t know what hit them when they stole Rosalinda Vizina’s package. reported that Vizina, an entomologist, had ordered 500 live cockroaches for a study she’s working on. “I feel a little bad for the roaches in case they got smushed or tossed or something like that,” Vizina told KSBW.


On Feb. 20, little Jameson Proctor was born in St. Louis and a radio audience listened in as he came into the world. Cassiday Proctor, co-host of the “Spencer’s Neighborhood” show on The Arch in St. Louis, scheduled her C-section right in the middle of drive time and then invited listeners to share the moment when Jameson was born, at 7:45 a.m., through a broadcast phone call. “Our radio show is all about sharing our personal lives,” Proctor, 33, told The Telegraph. She also solicited ideas for names from her fans and received more than 400 submissions. “It was not something I wanted to keep private,” Proctor said.
