Make way

As New Hampshire takes its place as the second oldest state in the country, we need to ask, “What kind of state do we have?,” “What kind of state do we want?” and “What do we need to realize that vision?” The future of any community, state or country is its youth. Let’s leave aside for a moment the vexing and perennial issue of how New Hampshire funds education at all levels and focus instead on the extent to which we engage youth in the shaping of our future, specifically their involvement in public life, our boards of trustees and directors, and our places of work. We all know the majority of the New Hampshire workforce is edging up to retirement age and yet we also know many at that age are not retiring and choosing instead to continue to work, often in the same positions they have for years. The same is true of those serving on our boards of private, public and nonprofit institutions — “70 is the new 50” or sentiments to that effect. But while it is financially beneficial and/or professionally satisfying to soldier on in one’s role as those ages are achieved, what is lost? One institution in our state has made a very deliberate effort to bring onto its governing board young and energetic trustees and into its employ those who have demonstrated accomplishment but show still greater promise. Yes, they serve and work with very experienced fellow trustees and colleagues, but they bring a freshness of vision, new ways of refocusing the organization’s mission, and energy to the whole enterprise. The results have been startling: new audiences, new services, and a younger demographic being served. And what of our local and state government? New Hampshire boasts of having the largest legislature in the country, but its average age is 65. Turn up at any legislative hearing and note the composition of the committee. The policy-making of our state is primarily in the hands of retirees, those who can work part-time, and those sufficiently wealthy to have the free time to serve. There should be no doubt about their commitment, sincerity or hard work. But what are we doing to encourage a better intergenerational mix? Does the incipient wave of youth activism that has formed in the aftermath of school shootings portend a change in voting and civic engagement? Do we who are in the older quartile encourage younger friends, colleagues or neighbors to consider a run for public office? Do we who serve on boards agitate for younger members? And are we who occupy positions of authority preparing to make way for successors? Time will tell.

NEWS & NOTES Surplus funding

Gov. Chris Sununu signed HB 1817, a surplus spending bill that distributed about $102 million to various state initiatives, according to a news release. Surplus funding was produced by an unexpectedly high business tax revenue this past fiscal year. The bill directed $10 million to the state’s Rainy Day Fund, $20 million to repair red-listed bridges and $10 million back to municipalities for improvements to roads and bridges. The news release also cited other projects that will receive funding, including affordable housing projects, the Recovery Friendly Workplace Initiative, a collective bargaining agreement for state employees and a settlement with the state’s hospitals over uncompensated health care payments.

U.S. attorneys

The U.S. Department of Justice appointed two new U.S. assistant attorneys to the District of New Hampshire, according to a news release. The appointments are part of the department’s largest attorney staffing increase in decades. One of the new attorneys for New Hampshire will focus on violent crime, while the other will oversee civil enforcement of federal laws. In a statement, U.S. Attorney for the District of New Hampshire Scott W. Murray said the two attorneys would assist the department in prosecuting cases related to the opioid epidemic, “especially those involving firearms,” and the civil enforcement attorney will focus on investigating “practitioners who prescribe or distribute controlled substances in an illegal, irresponsible manner” and “health care providers who defraud Medicare and other federal benefit programs.”

Senate harassment

The Office of the Attorney General concluded a criminal investigation of an allegation of workplace misconduct made against state Sen. Andy Sanborn (R-Bedford), according to a news release. The statement from the office said a state senate intern was allegedly provided with a job in the Senate Clerk’s Office and a cash payment in 2013 in exchange for their silence regarding an inappropriate comment made to them by Sen. Sanborn. In a letter addressed to New Hampshire State Senate President Charles Morse, the office confirmed that Sanborn made an inappropriate comment to the intern, and the intern received an unsolicited payment of “no more than” $200 from Senate Chief of Staff Jay Flanders intended as a loan for food and gas, which was later returned by the intern. The letter added that the intern was uncomfortable with the payment and unsure why they received it. However, the AG’s office said in the letter that it found “no credible evidence that there was any connection between the inappropriate comment made to the intern and the later job and cash that were provided to the intern.”

known as biologics, which are used to treat a range of diseases including cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and anemia. SB 376 changes how retailers in New Hampshire record the customer information that is required under federal law when purchasing products that contain pseudoephedrine, which is used to make illegal methamphetamine. In his statement, Gov. Sununu said the law will allow retailers to see if a customer has exceeded or is about to exceed the federal purchase limits by purchasing products at multiple stores.


Gov. Chris Sununu signed two bills that extend protections for LGBTQ people and youth, according to a news release. HB 1319 updates New Hampshire’s nondiscrimination laws to include transgender people, prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity in employment, housing and public spaces. Gov. Sununu also signed HB 587, which bans conversion therapy for minors. These practices attempt to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

Drug enforcement

Gov. Chris Sununu signed two bills intended to lower the cost of prescription drugs and address the threat of methamphetamines in New Hampshire, according to a statement from the governor. HB 1791 will allow pharmacists to fill a prescription with a less expensive biosimilar drug once the Food and Drug Administration has approved access to that drug. According to the Governor’s statement, biosimilars are less costly imitations of drugs

Higher ed merger


Increasing educational opportunities for students was a central reason behind the merger provided by both presidents. Once the merger is finalized, Devereaux said, students will be able to enroll in courses at both schools, allowing, for example, a business major to take a variety of art electives and a photography student to complete a business minor. “There’s excellent synergy between our institutions. We have some overlap of programs, but it’s not completely redundant,” Perkins said. “We’ve had conversations about what new concentrations we could develop within other majors, given the breadth of programs and courses that don’t exist with either institution independently.” The structure of student degree programs might vary. Students may choose to live at the NEC or NHIA residence halls depending on their major but take courses at the other campus or online. Perkins said students might also choose to study on one campus during the spring and fall semesters and take classes over the summer term either online or at the other school. “Students have become much more sophisticated, and a big part of what’s making this possible is technology,” said Devereaux. “It’s no longer a matter of ‘I’m going to school online’ or ‘I’m going to a university.’ Students can do whatever is con-

functions, including payroll, human resources, finance departments and admissions and phase this in over time,” said Perkins. “The economies that can be achieved with consolidating functions are significant.” Meanwhile, enrollment is one area where NHIA will benefit from NEC’s institutional support. Devereaux said NEC has been very effective at growing its student body as well as international enrollment, which he sees as a growth opportunity for NHIA and a means of helping to build a diverse workforce in New Hampshire. “We want to attract students to come to New Hampshire and stay here,” Devereaux said. “That’s one of the reasons we require an internship for every single one of our students.”

Making it official

Both presidents stressed that an established structure for the new merged institution is still in progress, and further details will be released over the next several months. According to Devereaux, this upcoming year will be focused on integrating the colleges’ office systems and finding administrative efficiencies, and that functionally for students, “nothing is going to change this fall.” He added that the goal is for students to start enrolling in classes on both campuses by 2019, adding that “we might have cross registration for the spring semester, but almost certainly by the fall.”

In the meantime, Perkins said, the merger will need approval from the New Hampshire Department of Education’s Division of Higher Education and the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education at the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. She said the colleges have had conversations with both organizations, and official reports on the merger are in progress. Anthony Schinella, director of communications for the NHDOE, said the Higher Education Commission is expecting to receive materials from NHIA concerning the merger, after which the commission will approve or deny the application. He said the division leader from the department, Michael Seidel, has been working with both colleges on the merger proposal. “Both institutions reached out to us about the merger, and we’re excited that they will be working together to create opportunities for students,” Frank Edelblut, the commissioner of the NHDOE, said in a statement. “This merger will put their institutions on solid financial footing, and we look forward to continuing to work with them through the regulatory process.” Barbara E. Brittingham, president of NEASC’s Commission on Institutions of Higher Education, said the commission hopes to consider the merger at its meeting in September, but the colleges’ application will need approval from the Department of Education before it will be reviewed by NEASC. She doesn’t see any obvious barriers for the merger going through and cited some similar mergers approved recently by the commission, including Wheelock College and Boston University in Massachusetts as well as Johnson State College and Lyndon State College in Vermont. “The two presidents have been in touch, and we had a good phone conversation where they explained their process and due diligence,” said Brittingham. “They have complementary missions, and the merger seems like a benefit to both institutions and their students.”


Funding immigrant businesses New microloan program assists NH’s new Americans By Scott Murphy

The state’s first microloan program focused on helping first-generation immigrant business owners has launched, offering 24- to 36-month microloans from $5,000 to $50,000 for working capital, renovations or purchasing inventory and equipment, with interest rates starting at 7 percent. Program participants will receive technical assistance from the Regional Economic Development Center in Raymond, which launched the New Americans Loan Fund. The assistance is intended to prepare business owners to eventually qualify for financing through a bank, including advice for accounting and bookkeeping, website management and marketing. “This program allows us to support new job opportunities in the state while also mitigating the challenges facing new American business owners,” REDC President Laurel Adams said. “Attracting new Americans and keeping them in New Hampshire can increase the state’s diversity, grow our economy and help combat our state’s labor shortage.” The loan fund is an extension of a pilot program first developed in 2016 by REDC and the Welcoming Concord Initiative. REDC is currently working with five immigrant-owned businesses and hopes to grant six to eight additional loans in the loan fund’s first year as a statewide program. The hope is to grow the New Americans Loan Fund into a $2 million fund through a combination of business and personal donations, along with government resources. By mid-June, REDC expects to receive approval to participate in the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority’s tax credit program, which offers New Hampshire businesses a 75 percent state tax credit against a donation made to any approved project.

Launching a business

Tika Acharya was the first new American to partner with REDC to take advantage of what would eventually become the New American Loan Fund. Born in Bhutan, Acharya spent 17 years in a refugee camp in Nepal before eventually earning a business degree in India and working in various professional fields, including insurance. Acharya began working in New Hampshire in

2009 after the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement placed him and his family in the Granite State. After working for MetLife and the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, Acharya decided to start the process of opening his own business. But he found it difficult to integrate into a new business culture. While he and his family were able to self-fund a grocery business venture back in 2015, Acharya ran into financing issues commonly faced by immigrant entrepreneurs, namely a lack of business or accounting history to secure a bank loan. Business owners like Acharya often seek out microloans for this reason, and he said both the funding and technical assistance he received were essential for helping him launch AS Insurance in Manchester. Since launching in early 2017, AS Insurance has grown to cover about 1,000 clients and has five offices in New Hampshire, Ohio and Pennsylvania. “REDC was helpful for more than just lending,” said Acharya, who is also principal of AS Insurance. “The REDC staff helped us build a solid business plan, something I hadn’t been able to pull together as well in the past.” Acharya added that the loan fund also helped him become a part of the community. “Our staff is bilingual and bicultural, so we are filling a vital need in the community by helping those with language barriers or who come from different backgrounds,” Acharya said. “[This loan program] can help other first-generation immigrants start a business with training and funding, so they too can put down roots and contribute to the community.” 121172

You’ve spent your entire legal career in New Hampshire. What’s kept you working in the Granite State? Have you ever considered taking a job in D.C. or another state? New Hampshire has a quality of life that’s second to none. I’d be hard pressed to find anywhere that comes close. I got involved in law enforcement in New Hampshire pretty early on. I worked for the Department of Safety while I was in law school, and then I started working for the City of Concord right after I graduated. I really got involved in New Hampshire law enforcement at the ground floor and stayed on and progressed from there. I never seriously pursued going somewhere else. How does [your new job] differ from your other jobs? For my first job [as chief prosecuting attorney for the City of Concord], I was the only prosecutor in Concord when I started. The case load increased tremendously during the time I was there. That was a job where we prosecuted just about everything that comes through from the local district court. Then I became [Merrimack] County attorney, and the jurisdiction increased to the entire county. And of course the U.S. district attorney oversees the entire state. What was the confirmation process like? I applied in March of last year, and the process ran pretty close to a year until I was confirmed. It’s a vetting process that runs through the Department of Justice. Initially, I was fortunate enough to receive the support of Governor Sununu. He interviewed me in March [2017] and recommended me to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. … President [Donald Trump] issued a release in November saying that he would nominate me, and after that the matter was submitted to the Senate. There’s a vetting process that goes on there … I did two interviews with the Justice Department in July and August. … The Senate voted to confirm me on Feb. 14 [2018].

have a serious problem in New Hampshire associated with the opioid epidemic. It’s something I encountered on a daily basis as the county attorney for Merrimack CounScott Murray ty … I’ve been a prosecutor for 35 years, and when I started, there was very little hard drug activity. If there was heroin, it was brought in by someone else. It’s become progressively worse over the years, and it’s spawning violent crime and having a corrosive effect on the community in general … It’s a very complex problem, probably more complex than is generally recognized. We’re really dealing with a drug industry that stretches well beyond New Hampshire. These drugs are not being manufactured here. We’re dealing with supply lines starting in other countries. Our jurisdiction actually reaches beyond the state border, which is absolutely essential to deal with the problem, because that’s where the drugs are coming from … What we really need to do is have law enforcement on the supply lines and disrupt these organizations that are funneling drugs into the state.

The U.S. Department of Justice just assigned two new assistant U.S. attorneys to New Hampshire. What will they be investigating specifically? One of the new prosecutors is tasked with dealing with violent crime. So the new person that comes in will prosecute cases that involve violent criminal activity. But again, violent criminal activity is being generated by the opioid crisis, so it’s directly linked to drugs. Federal jurisdiction doesn’t extend to all violent crime, but it does extend to crimes like armed robbery, where you have some people trying to get money for drugs, for example … The other prosecutor will focus on civil enforcement, which is an area which allows us to get at a number of things related to fraud in federal areas … We’ll What do you most hope to accomplish take a close look if drugs are being diverted from their proper use or sold illegally. in office? — Scott Murphy I don’t think it’s any surprise that we


QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Child abuse and neglect A study from the University of New Hampshire found that cases of child abuse and neglect in New Hampshire have increased over the past several years. According to the report, cases of child maltreatment reported to the New Hampshire Division for Children, Youth and Families increased by 21 percent between 2013 and 2016, jumping from 9,248 to 11,197 cases. From 2012 to 2016, UNH found that the number of children and youth removed from parental care increased from 358 to 547. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Substance abuse was a recurring issue driving many of these cases. According to the report, the number of cases of children and youth removed from parental care due to substance-related allegations doubled from 30 percent of all cases in 2012 to 60 percent in 2016.

Healthy deer New Hampshire’s white-tailed deer population once again showed no evidence of chronic wasting disease during the 2017 hunting season, according to a report from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. The disease is a neurological disorder that is always fatal to white-tailed deer, moose, mule deer, elk and other members of deer family. QOL Score: +1 Comment: While chronic wasting disease is not believed to be transmissible to humans, New Hampshire Fish and Game advises hunters not to consume animals that may have the disease. The department also urges hunters not to use natural urine-based deer lures, as these lures are often made with urine from captive deer facilities in states where the disease is present.

Immunization awards The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced that its Division of Public Health Services received five awards from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at the 48th annual National Immunization Conference. The division was recognized for the New Hampshire Immunization Program, which received awards for programs aimed at New Hampshire residents ranging anywhere from 6 months to 65 years and older. QOL Score: +1 Comment: According to the DHHS website, the program has helped vaccinate approximately 342,000 children under age 19 in New Hampshire.

Top 15 economy In two recent studies, WalletHub ranked New Hampshire’s economy among the top 15 in the country. New Hampshire landed at 14 in a study on state economies overall and was ranked as the fourth best state for jobs. QOL Score: +1 Comment: New Hampshire’s earned the top spot for job opportunities and tied for first with four other states for having the lowest unemployment rate. For overall economic health, New Hampshire ranked in the top five for highest state government surplus per capita, highest average educational attainment for new immigrants and highest percentage of high-tech jobs.

We live in an incredible time where the inexplicably contentious behavior of our president makes his detractors apoplectic, and his supporters see it as either the cost of doing business, the ends justifying the means, or, increasingly, no big deal. Consider how Donald Trump prepared, and I use this term loosely, for the most important event of his presidency, a meeting with the dictator of a country historically hostile to the U.S. and a growing threat throughout Asia that could dramatically impact (either way) the peace and security of the entire world. And once again, in a way no other president ever has done, the world of sport directly and indirectly was heavily intertwined with his actions in the days leading to the U.S.-North Korea summit. Given the gravity of what was supposed to go on in Singapore, I can’t not start with the weirdness of who he brought along for this first ever meeting between these ancient adversaries, Dennis Rodman. Yes, that Dennis Rodman. The NBA Hall of Famer. A weird dude in any setting, but in this one he somehow fits. Though no word in yet whether he brought along the wedding dress or pink boa he famously wore to various gatherings at the peak of his attention-seeking playing days. But maybe that’s what Kim Jong Un was hoping for, because for some reason he likes the guy, having had him over to NK’s answer to Michael Jackson’s Neverland retreat for a few visits already. Not sure what that says for the prospects of world peace. But, hey, whatever blows his, err, dress up. Who cares what the uptight international diplomacy world thinks of it. If it helps, why not? Besides, that’s not the truly crazy thing about this anyway. It’s if the president actually pulls this off he’s got to be in line for the Nobel prize. And what do you think the odds would have been if someone went into a Vegas casi-

no in the ’90s to lay down a bet that in 2018 Donald Trump would win a Nobel prize with Dennis Rodman as his wingman? They don’t calculate that high. And of course the irony of Trump possibly winning the Nobel prize for peace will be that it came when the most contentious person I’ve seen in my lifetime spent his entire week in the usual array of gotto-avenge-any-slight Twitter fights with the enemies during what Mr. Rogers would have described as just a routine week in the neighborhood. They included: The Philadelphia Eagles: The latest sports team to say no thanks to a White House visit. One report said of their 51 players only Nick Foles wanted to go. Once that news was out, the President did what he does best, disinvited and slammed them as unpatriotic, even though no Eagle took a knee all year. That brought many in the Pennsylvania congressional delegation into it, along with the mayor of Philadelphia, who called Trump “unimportant.” Bill Russell: The Celtics legend and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner weighed in on Twitter saying the NFL protests were about “social justice” as opposed to his basepleasing disrespecting-the-military blather. More White House Visits: The media then asked LeBron James about the disinvitation. The fervent Trump critic said no matter who wins the NBA title, neither will go to the White House. Steph Curry agreed a short time later. Predictably, the president disinvited both before they were even invited. Tom Brady: The Washington Post reported that Trump was incensed at TB-12 for making him look bad by declining to come with the Patriots last year for “personal reasons” and that several calls were made to change his mind. Don’t know if the president knew the personal reason was to visit his mom as she battled cancer, but given all the evidence, who would think that would matter to the prez? Certainly not that gold star family he berated during the 2016 campaign. Israel-Argentina Soccer Friendly: It was to be Argentina’s final World Cup tune-up in

a Jerusalem neighborhood. But after Palestinian protesters planned to burn photos of star Lionel Messi in continuing protests of Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, Argentina smartly canceled. Given that over 50 protesters died the day it opened, that seemed a prudent thing to do. The Pardons: With presidential pardons to signal friends and foes alike being Trump’s latest toy, who knows what he was after by asking NFL players to suggest pardons for deserving people in their orbits. He also said he was considering pardoning Muhammad Ali. Though with the Supreme Court overturning his conviction in 1971, it wasn’t needed. Plus with his base thinking they’re the only patriotic people in the country, backing a fellow draft-dodger doesn’t really make sense, does it? The G-7 Economic Summit: Not a sports story, and predicting the outcome of the acrimonious trade war the president is starting is above my pay grade, but dumping on our most important economic allies does bring to mind the backstabbing of his USFL partners. The economic warfare he helped escalate inside that league and with the NFL directly led to the league’s going belly-up. Since that financial catastrophe followed his usual selfindulgent behavior, I wonder if he’s leading the country to another one here. Then he got on Air Force One for Singapore with the possibilities ranging from world peace to moving to the brink of nuclear holocaust to an international incident with the chef from where he had breakfast before leaving for a visit with the NHL champion Washington Capitals. And with him standing up for mother Russia at the G-7, I’m betting all their Russian players show after Vladimir Putin makes one of those “if you know what’s good for you” suggestions to go see his binky. Of course, collusion on that will be denied. Which, as Mr. Rogers would say, was just another day in the neighborhood. Email Dave Long at dlong@hippopress. com.

Sports Glossary Denver Baseball: Denver’s legendarily thin air has been vexing pitchers and baseball talent evaluators since the 1950s. The best example was Marvelous Marv Throneberry, the embodiment of the comically bad 120-loss 1962 New York Mets but before that a prized 1950s Yankees power prospect after hitting 40 and 42 homers for their AAA Denver Bears. Problem was, that was in the days before the effects of the ideal gas law or hitting a mile above sea level were ever considered in sports. Once Marv got back on earth he busted. Backstabbing the USFL Partners: Donald Trump bought the USFL’s New Jersey Generals in 1985 with the intent of moving play to the fall to compete with the NFL. His public announcements undermined his partner’s strategy to be a spring league only. He also helped skyrocket salaries with major signings of Heisman winner Doug Flutie and NFL players negating its plan to tightly control player costs, which brought the NFL into the spending war. After it collapsed the Trump-led USFL sued and won a judgement of $1 – which anti-laws tripled to $3. 749 Mast Road | Manchester, NH | 603-623-7777

From casual family dinners to everyone’s-invited cookouts, steak tips are on summer backyard barbecue menus throughout New England. In fact, steak tips reach peak sales this time of year, according to Jim Ward of J&B Butcher in East Hampstead. “Memorial Day to Labor Day is our big steak tip season, and the warmer and sunnier it is, the more we’ll go through,” said Ward, who also runs New England Steak Tips, a nationwide shipping business. “As we get into nicer weather, everybody wants to move outside and cook outside, throwing [the steak tips] on the grill.” Local butchers and restaurant chefs talk about the cuts of meat that are best used for cooking steak tips, some tips on how to cook them, the ingredients for the best steak marinades, and what you can do with steak tips to make them one of summer’s most versatile dishes.

Common cuts

Several cuts of steak are available to purchase at local butcheries and use as steak tips, but the most popular cut you are going to find in New Hampshire is a bottom sirloin, otherwise known as a flap meat or a bavette cut, according to Craig Muccini of The Flying Butcher in Amherst. “I would say that’s probably 99 percent of the steak tips that we sell,” Muccini said. “Other cuts people can use are filet mignon tips … or what’s called the teres HIPPO | JUNE 14 - 20, 2018 | PAGE 12

major, which is a unique cut on the cattle that comes from the shoulder. It’s a decent piece of meat but a touch drier than the flap meat.” Ward said bottom sirloin cuts, which anatomically come from the bottom rear of the cow, are among the most tender, thus making the meat better suited to cut into smaller pieces and use as steak tips. “Bottom sirloin [cuts are] very Northeastern, very New England specific. I mean, they are harder to find outside of here,” he said. “Down south and out west, tri-tips are more prevalent. We sell those here as well, but they’ve just got a little bit of a different texture to them. … Cutting a bottom sirloin steak tip is a lot more forgiving. Those will come out good pretty much any way you do them.”

Buying tips

Most butcheries will offer bottom sirloin steak tips by the pound, with prices that fluctuate depending on the demand. Some will trim the fat and cut into smaller sizes, and then will either sell them pre-marinated or plain if you want to do the marinating yourself. Others — like Concord Beef & Seafood — take it a step further by hand-tenderizing the steak tips to allow the marinade to soak in well. You can also get steak tips shipped to your home by placing orders at Ward said he started the business when he realized enough customers from out of state were looking for the bottom sirloin tips. But he also ships to anywhere in the Granite State. “We try to simplify it, where you

Recipe: Steak tip bomb sandwiches Courtesy of Bobby Marcotte of The Tuckaway Tavern & Butchery in Raymond (serves 4) 1 pound house marinated steak tips (diced small) ½ pint shiitake mushrooms (chopped) ½ pint baby portobello mushrooms (chopped) 1 white onion (julienne) 1 red bell pepper ½ pound American or smoked gouda cheese ½ pound cheddar cheese 4 8-inch sub rolls (buttered and toasted just before ready to serve)

Heat large frying pan or skillet until near smoking. Add diced tips and toss. Place heat on medium to medium high. When steak is about half-cooked, add vegetables to pan and toss. Continue cooking and tossing until both steak and vegetables begin to caramelize. Add cheese and cover until melted. Distribute evenly to four sub rolls with desired condiments and serve with chips.

Steak tip kebabs Kebabs are easy dishes made from using skewers to cook your steak tips on the grill with vegetables like onions, peppers or mushrooms or even other meats like chicken. Craig Muccini of The Flying Butcher in Amherst said steak tips cut into about 1 ½ inch square-sized pieces tend to work really well for fitting on skewers for kebabs, and you can alternate them with vegetables like red onions or red, yellow or orange bell peppers. “The peppers and onions you would cut up to little square-inch pieces, about the same size as the meat,” he said. “I would cut the peppers in half first to get rid of all the seeds, and then the onions you’d cut in half and then thirds. Mushrooms, if they are the right size, can be kept whole.” Rob Darling, co-owner of Concord Beef & Seafood, said he likes to make up steak kebabs available at the shop with a different vegetable alternating with each piece of steak.

“The best kebabs are when every piece of beef is separated by a vegetable, so you’d have like a red onion, then a piece of meat, and then a green or yellow pepper, then meat, then maybe a red onion again or a red pepper. It just kind of commingles the flavors better,” Darling said. “The whole kebab itself would have maybe eight ounces of protein and four ounces of veggies, so it’s a good serving.” If you’re using wooden skewers, Muccini said he recommends soaking them in water for up to 30 minutes to prevent them from charring on the grill. Or, they can be covered completely with meat so none is exposed. The steak and vegetables must be seared on all sides of the kebab. Darling said this can be achieved by rolling them to one side by about 45 degrees every few minutes. “The middle most pieces get cooked last, and that’s the biggest thing I tell my customers, is that that’s how you know when it’s done cooking,” he said.

choose up to 10 pounds … and it gets to the customer within two days,” he said. “The orders have to be in by 5 p.m. on a Monday, so we can prepare them and ship them out on a Wednesday and the customer receives it on a Friday.”

Soaking it in

Dozens of steak marinades are available by the bottle or the pint at butcher shops across New Hampshire, ranging from sweet to spicy. But making your own marinade can also be an easy and fun way to experiment with different flavors, according to Rob Darling, coowner of Concord Beef & Seafood. “The things you generally want in a good steak marinade are a fat, so like olive oil, vegetable oil or butter, and an acid like apple cider, vinegar or lime or lemon juice,” Darling said. “Then you can fill in the flavors by adding other

things like garlic or scallions or Worcestershire sauce.” Darling said as long as you have those basic components, there is a lot of room for creativity in your marinades. The sugar from sweeter ingredients like maple syrup, brown sugar or honey, for example, will create a caramelized crust outside the meat. He added that other additives like soy sauce are great for tenderizing the meat, and poking small holes in your steak tips with a fork can help them absorb the marinade. Another great ingredient for marinades is wine. Amy LaBelle, winemaker and owner of LaBelle Winery in Amherst, said the acids in the wine help to tenderize the meat similar to adding a vinegar or citrus juice. LaBelle Winery produces a steak marinade and seasoning blend added to your wine of choice under its line of products called “The Winemaker’s Kitchen.”

The amount of time you would let the meat soak once marinated has a lot to do with personal preference, but also with the quantities of your ingredients, Darling said. “If you’re using a lot of lime juice for example, that is super acidic, and so I wouldn’t let it sit for more than 10 hours or so,” he said, “because after that, if there’s too much acid in the marinade, it breaks down the meat too much. … That seems to only be the case with citric acids, though. Other marinades won’t interfere at all and can sit up to two or three days.”

Grilling steak tips to serve as the main course or as part of steak kebabs with peppers and onions are the most common methods this time of year, according to Ward. “The better the cut of meat, the higher heat you’ll cook it on, so whether it’s a gas grill or a charcoal grill, you cook steak tips on a high heat,” he said. Bobby Marcotte, owner of The Tuckaway Tavern & Butchery in Raymond, said a common grilling method he recommends is turning the heat up to high before throwing the steak tips on, then letting them sear under a medium or lower heat as they finish cooking. “The temperature drop allows a nice, steady cook rather than a straight up char,” he said. Whether or not you’re grilling marinated meat is also a factor. Marcotte said it can tend to be on the tougher side

without it. Many butcher shops will use a vacuum tumbler, a tool used to marinate the meat fast by trapping it inside with pressurized air. But if you’re grilling steak tips that haven’t received this prior treatment, marinating them after cooking is the way to go to achieve the most flavor. Chef and manager Brian Nassif of The Flying Butcher said the flap meat the shop uses for its steak tips can create great summer dishes, like the steak chimichurri, which he said complements sides like potatoes and asparagus. While the recipe calls for seasoning the steak with salt and pepper before grilling, the ingredients used to make the chimichurri are not added until after. Ward said that steak tips can even be popular for grilling around the holidays, replacing other traditional main courses like pot roasts or prime ribs. “One unique thing that seems to be catching on is that some people will buy the steak tips, grill them up and then cut them into almost fajita-like strips and put a port wine demi-glace gravy over them,” he said. Steak tips don’t have to be prepared on the grill, either. Marcotte said a fun alternative can be heating them offer a frying pan or skillet to make a steak tip bomb sandwich. “I dice them up and then get them caramelized with peppers and onions,” he said. “It’s definitely a recipe I’d recommend that’s a little bit out of the ordinary for steak tips.”

ARTS From the books

New exhibition features New Hampshire illustrators By Angie Sykeny

The illustrations that have brought many books to life will now bring life to the gallery walls at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester during the museum’s newest special exhibition, “Beyond Words: Book Illustrations by David M. Carroll, Tomie dePaola, and Beth Krommes,” on view June 16 through Sept 9. “We’re excited for this opportunity to showcase the artwork of three of New Hampshire’s longtime, best-known and award-winning illustrators,” Andrew Spahr, director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Currier, said. “This is a show I’ve wanted to do for many years, knowing Tomie and David and Beth’s

work, and it’s been great working with them and getting to know them.” The Currier collaborated with the artists to compile a collection of more than 130 original illustrations for the exhibition, which have been used in the production of published books. The artists represent a variety of media and artistic styles. Carroll, who has written and illustrated several non-fiction natural history books, works in watercolor and penand-ink to produce detailed illustrations that are both artistic and scientific. DePaola has written and illustrated more than 260 books for children of all ages; his distinctive style consists of strong outlines and bold figures and forms that propel the story’s narrative.

“Beyond Words” Where: The Currier Museum of Art, 150 Ash St., Manchester When: On view June 16 through September 9. Gallery hours are Sunday, Monday and Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cost: Regular museum admission ($15 for adults, $13 for seniors 65+, $10 for students, $5 for youth ages 13 through 17) More info: Visit or call 669-6144 Special events: Opening Celebration - Saturday, June 16, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be family-friendly activities like art-making, tours and performances, plus special remarks by the featured artists at 3 p.m. Free admission. “Beyond Words” focus tours: Friday, June 29, Thursday, July 19, and Thursday, Aug. 9, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Free with regular museum admission.

Krommes, who has been illustrating children’s books for nearly 20 years, uses a unique scratchboard technique in her work, exploring themes of wonder, family and nature. “There will be a range of important works and ideas from their careers … that explore their techniques and their inspiration and how they develop their images,” Spahr said, “[including] some of the most popular and familiar images as well as ones people might not have seen.” The exhibition will be divided into sections for each artist. Each piece will have a label written for a general audience as well as a label written for children, placed lower on the wall, to help them engage with the art. “It might say something like, ‘Look at the animals depicted in this illustration. What animals have you seen and drawn in your own artwork?’” Spahr said. “We want this [exhibition] to be accessible to all generations in a meaningful way.” Additionally, the exhibition will have a designated reading space with some of the books that feature the artists’ illustrations. An opening celebration for “Beyond

Words” will be held on Saturday, June 16, followed by a series of events inspired by the exhibition and attended by the artists, happening throughout the duration of the exhibition. “We hope people will have fun and enjoy this artwork and take the opportunity to come meet the artists and talk to them about it,” Spahr said.

INSIDE/OUTSIDE Downtown days

Concord festival will offer “More & New” fun By Angie Sykeny

44th annual Market Days Festival

Around 70,000 people are expected in downtown Concord for the capital city’s 44th annual Market Days Festival, happening Thursday, June 21, through Saturday, June 23. Congruent with this year’s theme, “More & New,” the festival will feature 50 new vendors in addition to the stores and eateries that participate every year, plus all kinds of new activities and entertainment. “Last year, we were inundated with feedback and requests from people who wanted to see new things — new things to do, new things to eat, new things to buy — so it’s really exciting that we’re able to do that this year,” said Kate Fleming, events and outreach coordinator for Intown Concord, which hosts the festival. For all three days, there will be live music by national musicians on the South Stage, presented by the Capitol Center for the Arts and the William H. Gile Music Series. The Homegrown Stage at Bicentennial Square will feature local musicians, and aspiring singers will compete in the Market Days Idol challenge held every evening in Eagle Square. For some low-key, family-friendly fun, stop by the Statehouse lawn for “Downtime with Intown,” where there will be a variety of activities including crafts, rock painting, mural painting, birdhouse making, face painting, yoga and fitness classes, an acupuncture demonstration, a robotics demonstration, pet demonstrations and more. “Market Days can get overwhelming with so many people,” Fleming said. “‘Downtime with Intown’ gives people a place to come hang out, sit down and relax, and give the kids something to do.” 23 Kiddie pool Family activities this week.

Where: Downtown Concord When: Thursday, June 21, through Saturday, June 23, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., each day Cost: Free admission Visit: Schedule of events and activities

Other festivities happening on all three days include the Kids Zone in City Plaza, which will have a bouncy house, mini golf, water games, giant Jenga and life-sized Angry Birds; the Concord Arts Market on Pleasant Street, where 25 artists and craftspeople will be selling their work; the Evo rock wall on the corner of Main and Park streets; and an original, restored Concord Coach on display on South Main Street. One of the new highlights this year is the Urban Highline on Friday and Saturday, where, for $89 per person, people can slackline between two buildings across Main Street. Slacklining, Fleming explained, is “walking and balancing up high on a thick canvas nylon [strip of] fabric.” Participants will be harnessed in to another line above their head, similar to a zipline, which they can hold onto to keep their balance. They’ll also get a personal photograph of them crossing, included in the ticket price. “We thought this would be a great thing to add to Market Days, to give people a

chance to actually walk right over the festival,” Fleming said. On Thursday on North Main Street, New Hampshire Motor Speedway will bring cars and other attractions, followed by a demonstration by Granite State Roller Derby in the evening. Red River Theatres and Double Midnight Comics will present an outdoor movie, Black Panther (PG-13, 2018), on Friday evening on North Main Street. On Saturday morning, the 3rd Annual Capital City Classic 10K takes off from City Plaza and continues through downtown and around the city. In the evening, there will be a fashion show on the Statehouse lawn, followed by an inflated hot air balloon demonstration on North Main Street. “It has evolved into so much more than shopping. It’s music, food, activities, something for everyone,” Fleming said. “It’s a great time to meet everyone in the community, see the new restaurants and new stores and become part of all the energy and buzz in downtown.”

Sun, soil and water Three keys to a successful garden By Henry Homeyer

Being a great gardener is pretty simple. Know what your plants need in terms of sun, soil and water. Make adjustments as necessary, and your plants will thrive. Sunshine is what drives plant growth. Vegetables and many flowers do best with full sun. Full sun is generally defined as six hours of direct sun. But not all sun is equal. The sun at noon is much stronger than sun at 6 a.m. An hour of afternoon sun is, in my opinion, worth nearly two hours of morning sun. But many trees, shrubs and perennials want part sun or light shade. That’s where the gardener must decide. Put those hellebores on the north side of the barn? Or perhaps under the dappled sun that filters through a maple? That’s why I like to buy perennials in multiples. Starting some by seed makes sense as you have more plants to play with — without breaking the bank. Starting perennials by seed is easier than you might think, but requires patience. Unlike annual flowers, most perennials will not flower the same year they are planted. Biennials like hollyhocks and many foxglove will bloom the year after you start the seeds, then die. But some hollyhocks defy the odds and come back to bloom, year after year, for gardeners who cut them back after they bloom. The right soil is key for most plants. Some want sandy soil that drains quickly and stays relatively dry in winter because wet soils will rot their roots. Others need moist soils all summer or they go limp on hot days. You can learn by trial and error, but I try to minimize errors by reading up on a plant to see what soil it needs. My go-to book for this is Steven M. Still’s Manual of Herbaceous Ornamental Plants. Soil pH, a measure of acidity, is important to plants. Most perennials do best in soils with a pH of 6.2 to 6.8 which is just shy of neutral (7.0). Know your pH by testing every three to five years, as pH is easy to adjust. Want blueberries? You must have very acidic soil, in the 4.5 to 5.5 range. You can spread elemental sulfur around the bushes, or add an acidic fertilizer made for holly and rhododendrons. Do that right after blooming. I recommend getting a soil test done by a good lab every three years. Cooperative Extension in your state can do that for a fee. It will give you useful information about everything except nitrogen. Nitrogen levels vary considerably over the short term, so most labs do not measure them. But if you have good levels of organic matter, your probably do not have a major deficit. Organic fertilizers applied at planting time will boost nitrogen and add some for later in the form of slow-

Hellebores need shade, but how much?

release nitrogen components in the mix. But don’t add too much fertilizer, especially chemical fertilizers that can burn roots and push fast, unhealthy growth. Soil tilth and texture is important too. That’s what an experienced gardener learns by picking up a handful of soil and feeling it. Excellent soil is fluffy and does not compact easily. It has space for water and air. Moisten some soil and rub it between your fingers. If it feels sticky, it’s dominated by clay. If you feel many sharp bits, it’s sandy. A good loam is somewhere in between the two. You can improve clay or sandy soils by adding compost, lots of compost. I make compost, but also buy it each year. I add some to every planting hole and every new bed. I mix it in with potting soil for container growing. I spread it over the lawn to improve it, and to nourish the roots of an aging maple with roots under the lawn. Earthworms will work the compost into the soil, so I don’t have to. Moisture is key. For most, all growth stops when the soil dries out. And watering a plant that is flopping over and gasping for breath does not fix the problem immediately. Yes, most plants will look better within a day of watering, but it can be a few days or a week before they recover fully and start growing. In hot times, monitor moisture by eye or finger, especially for seedlings just planted. Mulch is great for holding in moisture. It protects the soil from the sun’s desiccating heat. It minimizes evaporation. It helps to prevent weeds from growing. An inch and a half or two inches of finely ground bark mulch will do a good job of preventing most annual weed seeds from growing – but will not deter roots of pernicious weeds from sending up sprouts. Heck, I’ve heard stories of Japanese knotweed growing right through asphalt driveways, and I know witch grass and ferns will pop up through most mulches. One of the great things about getting older is that I’ve made plenty of mistakes — and learned from them. Doing your homework and paying attention is really important. Henry’s website is Eemail


Dear Donna, I have several of these hooks. Not sure if they were for a fireplace or shutters. Thought you might be able to help. Claire from Concord Dear Claire, When I first saw your picture, I couldn’t remember what they were, so I had to think deep. Not because I hadn’t seen them before, but you don’t see them often. And if you do, they are not not necessarily being used for the purpose they were made for. Your hooks are actually gutter hangers from the 1800s. If you do research you will see there is an interesting story of how gutters started. Gutters were made from anything like clay, wood, metal, etc. Hooks are all different and there are many styles up to present time. Your hooks, now that they are not used for gutters, could easily be used for other things within a home. Value on them is for just the shape and condition so it’s tough to give an exact number, but I would say in the $50 range for the ones you have sent a picture of. If you want or need some ideas on what to use them for now, let me know.

Reader enlists help in ending neighbor’s dangerous behavior Dear Car Talk: We had a new neighbor move into our neighborhood and homeowners association a couple of years ago. We all have our eccentriciBy Ray Magliozzi ties, but this guy has a really odd habit, and I’m hoping you can help answer a question about it. This neighbor seems to believe that by turning off his headlights for the drive down the quarter-mile cul-de-sac to his house, he is saving his alternator and therefore prolonging its life. Is that anywhere near the truth? Never mind the several accidents he’s almost caused because we can’t see his car, the pedestrians and/or pets and/or children that could be run over; does he really save his alternator by doing this? I’d like to ask him why, if it’s such a savings, doesn’t he turn them off in town? Why wait until he’s in a neighborhood with only a couple of streetlights and it’s hard to see, where he could really cause some damage? We’ve tried talking to him. We’ve consulted a lawyer. We’ve tried talking to the local sher-

HIPPO | JUNE 14 - 20, 2018 | PAGE 26

iff ’s office, but they can help only if they are there when it happens. Unfortunately, although he turns off his lights like clockwork, his comings and goings vary, so there’s no way to predict when he’s going to be driving home. This gentleman is adamant that he’s saving his alternator, and it’s important enough to him that he is willing to break the law to do it. Maybe if a car expert steps in (that’s you, by the way), he will hear the truth. I fully intend to send him your answer. What are your thoughts? — Jane Wow. Humans are an interesting species. This guy’s a zealot, Jane. It’s hard to reason with zealots, but you should try one more time. He’s not saving his alternator. Even though the alternator is not powering the headlights during those few blocks, it’s still running. Headlights or not, the alternator is always making electricity to fire the spark plugs and recharge the battery. Not to mention running the fan, the heater, the windshield wipers, the radio, the heated seats or whatever else he’s using. So, if he’s driving the car, he’s using the alternator. That means the alterna-

tor bearings are spinning and the diode bridge is working. Those are the parts that wear out and cause alternators to fail. So he’s nuts, Jane. But you already knew that. The question is how to get him to stop this dangerous, and unnecessary, behavior. If reason fails, I think the answer probably lies in the very first sentence of your letter: You’re part of a homeowners association. I would imagine that HOAs have pretty broad leeway in adopting their own rules and regulations. I mean, HOAs can stop people from smoking on their grounds, they can ban loud music or leaf blowers, they can keep you from painting your house purple. I’m guessing they also can require headlights at night. So the HOA should consult a lawyer and find out. If you’re allowed to set safety rules for the association, propose a mandatory headlight-use-at-night bylaw with a fine for noncompliance, then put it to a vote. Let the vote be 39-1 in favor. Then all you need is for a couple of homeowners to buy Nest HD motionsensor outdoor cameras with night vision for a couple of hundred bucks each, put

‘em on your front porches, and wait for the video proof to roll in. I mean, that sounds aggressive. And you want to avoid a fight with people you live among, if at all possible. But if you’re really worried about your kids getting run over by this knucklehead, then you may have to use the greater common sense of the community to coerce him into more socially acceptable behavior. And imposing a fine is certainly kinder than puncturing his tires every few weeks by leaving a two-by-four with nails sticking out of it in the darkest part of the road and then telling him he would have seen it if he’d had his headlights on. Which — my lawyer wants me to point out — is not something I’m recommending. So try reasoning with him one more time. The electrical load from the headlights is an insignificant addition to what the alternator is doing anyway. If he realizes that the effect on his alternator is minimal and the effect on his lifestyle will be maximal, maybe a light bulb will go on for him. Preferably two. Visit

Nationally renowned barbecue restaurants will join dozens of local vendors for the 16th annual Rock’n Ribfest, an event that offers fair foods, craft beer, live music, a cornhole tournament, family entertainment and a whole lot of ribs. The event, organized by the Rotary Club of Nashua West and traditionally held every Father’s Day weekend, will return to Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Merrimack from Friday, June 15, through Sunday, June 17. Participating barbecue restaurants are dubbed “ribbers” at the festival, offering half and whole racks of ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, burgers and more, with some including homemade rubs and sauces, and sides liked baked beans. The vendors often represent several states; among this year’s ribbers will be Butch’s Smack Your Lips BBQ out of New Jersey, Gators BBQ from Florida and Johnson’s BBQ from Virginia Beach. Rotary Club treasurer and marketing committee member Jordan Guagliumi said being able to sample ribs from a variety of restaurants in one place where you wouldn’t otherwise get to is one of the event’s biggest draws. “We do have a lot of vendors who are out of state who come back every year, because they it’s a well-run event, and they like New Hampshire, the people and the fact that it’s an event for nonprofits,” Guagliumi said, adding that many of the ribbers travel to other barbecue and ribthemed events across the country. But even for those who don’t like ribs, the Rock’n Ribfest will feature local vendors — like Bruster’s Ice Cream and City

Moose Cafe & Catering — with options like pizza, fried dough, roasted sweet corn, apple crisp, cotton candy, fudge, popcorn and kettle corn. Guagliumi said this year the Rotary Club will be introducing a cornhole tournament for the first time, to be held on Saturday, June 16. The deadline to sign up online has passed, but participants can still sign up for $50 for a team (or $25 for individual registrants, not including your admission ticket) and compete in double-elimination games to win cash prizes. The games begin at 2 p.m., with sign ups at 12:30 p.m., according to Guagliumi. The fourth annual Rib Ride, to also be held on Saturday, is a 25-mile bike ride that will begin near the main gates of the Ribfest, at the parking lot of BAE Systems in Merrimack, and travel through rural areas of Merrimack, Nashua and Amherst. Then on Sunday, June 17, the Immediate Care Ribfest 5 Miler Road Race will be held, which includes a kids’ fun run at 8:15 a.m. followed by the race at 9 a.m. Runners will gain early admission to the Ribfest at 10 a.m. Other staples of the event include hot air balloon rides, photo opportunities with Anheuser-Busch Clydesdale, several inflatable bounce houses for kids, face-painting, clowns, beer tastings and a full schedule of live bands throughout all three days featuring a variety of genres such as rock and roll, acoustic, soul and blues. “It’s a great family event where people can bring the kids and enjoy great music and food,” Guagliumi said. “It’s safe to say we easily get over 20,000 people over the course of the weekend, and the entire net of the event goes back into the community.”

16th annual Rock’n Ribfest When: Friday, June 15, 4 to 11 p.m.; Saturday, June 16, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday, June 17, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Where: Anheuser-Busch Brewery, 221 Daniel Webster Highway, Merrimack Cost: $10 general admission at the gate or $7 if purchased online in advance.

Lamb a-skew

Lamb barbecue and Greek food festival returns By Matt Ingersoll

Hand-cut lamb cooked and marinated on the skewer is the main draw of one of the longest-running Greek food festivals in the Granite State, returning to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Manchester for the 70th year. The annual Lamb Barbecue and Food Festival, to be held on Saturday, June 16, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., is smaller in comparison to other similar events like Glendi. But co-organizer Paul Keriazes said it’s still a big community effort; church members work to remove the gristle and fat of the lamb by hand, cubing it and marinating it the day before to ensure the strongest flavor. “We debone and marinate the lamb using George Moulis’s famous recipe. He was one of the co-founders of the church who recently passed away,” Keriazes said. “The nice thing about having a smaller event like this is we are able to cook to order, so it pretty much goes right off the skewers and onto your plate. It doesn’t go under any heating lamps.” The late George Moulis’s grandson Michael even built the six-skewer barbecue grill that will be used during the festival, Keriazes added. Lamb souvlaki and lamb burgers with tzatziki sauce will also be available using the meat cooked on the skewer. “Because of it being the 70th anniversary, we’ve been trying to step up the festival a little bit,” Keriazes said. “We’ve increased the lamb production, and this year adding a bigger tent for some live entertainment.” In addition to the lamb, other food staples at the festival will include dolmathes (stuffed grape leaves), a Greek lasagna dish called pastitsio, loukanikos (Greek sausages), spanakopita (spinach pie), meatballs, hot dogs and several assorted side dishes, all prepared by members of the church in the weeks leading up to the event. Keriazes said all items can be ordered either a la carte or as dinners, which come with rice pilaf, green beans, a salad and bread. If you can’t stay for the festival, take-out is also available. A variety of Greek pastries are served as desserts, all of which are baked by church members throughout the week prior to the festival.

Chef Chris “Koz” Kozlowski of Farmington is the owner of Chef Koz’s Crescent City Kitchen (834-4345, flatironcateringnh. com), a 22-foot mobile food trailer that regularly appears at food truck festivals and other events all over New Hampshire and other New England states. Named after the city of New Orleans, Louisiana – known as “The Crescent City” – Chef Koz’s Crescent City Kitchen features a menu of made-fromscratch Cajun, Creole and Caribbean-inspired items. There are blackened Gulf redfish soft tacos and blackened shrimp tacos (each served with jicama slaw and remoulade), Cajun chicken and andouille sausage or vegan vegetable jambalaya, Ropa Vieja Cuban Po’ Boy sandwich, the Crawfish Monica pasta with a wine Creole cream sauce and several other options. The trailer was launched last year, but Chef Koz has nearly three decades of cooking experience. He is a 1998 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., and his resume includes stints as chef and owner of the former Crescent City Bistro & Rum Bar and the Orchard Street Chop Shop, both in Dover. He also cooked in the New Orleans area for a short time, where his brother lives and where visits inspired his passion for Creole cuisine. In addition to the food trailer, Chef Koz provides catering services under the name Flat Iron Catering Co., which he founded in 2010 at the request of several of his customers. Chef Koz’s Crescent City Kitchen will be at events across New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island nearly every week for the next several months; locally, he will next appear at the Amherst Food Truck Festival on June 23.

Ideas from off the shelf

Vegan alfredo pasta Moving with two toddlers has proved to be one of the more stressful things I’ve done this year and getting them back on a good meal schedule after the move was next in line. We ate our fair share of fast food and prepared meals as we made the trek to Virginia, and even more until we unpacked the kitchen and went grocery shopping. But it wasn’t until my sister came to visit and offered to cook that we had our first real meal in our new home, and it was fabulous. I’ve shared vegan recipes before, but this one might be the best one yet. I’ve always been hesitant to try vegan versions of things that are typically creamy and cheesy. In most cases, I’ve found the concept is solid but the execution leaves something to be desired. This alfredo sauce proved me wrong. Made from a combination of raw cashews, nutritional yeast and almond milk, plus onions, garlic and lemon juice, the alfredo sauce was creamy, delicious and somehow … cheesy. Adding veggies to the pasta before serving helped boost the flavors, but truthfully this sauce could stand on its own. My sister left me the recipe and told me the trick was soaking the cashews — either in boiled water for about 30 minutes or overnight in a bowl of room-temperature water — and of course adding plenty of garlic, onions, and salt and pepper to taste. You’ll also want a good food processor Vegan Alfredo Pasta 1 cup whole raw cashews (soaked in boiled water for 30 minutes or in roomtemp water overnight) 4 cloves of roasted garlic ¼ cup sautéed onions 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1½ cups unflavored almond milk

Sun - Mon: Closed Tues - Thurs: 11 AM - 9 PM Fri - Sat: 11 AM - 10 PM for this recipe, as the blending of the ingredients is what will give you the creamy alfredo-like consistency. Also, make sure you grab unflavored almond milk for this recipe. I once made the mistake of grabbing the coconut almond milk for a different recipe, and it completely altered the flavor of the finished product. Beyond soaking the cashews, this recipe comes together relatively quickly, especially if you just want the sauce and pasta and don’t want to bother cutting up and sautéing veggies. My kids usually pick out the vegetables anyhow (my daughter once picked a tomato out of marinara sauce), so this alfredo sauce is a healthy dinner option with or without the veggies. After the move, this recipe was exactly what I needed to get back into the swing of cooking and into the rhythm of working in my new kitchen. Even without a fully stocked pantry to pull from, I found this recipe surprisingly easy to pull off. It’s certainly a recipe I’ll be working into a more regular rotation – especially when I want to trick my kids into eating something healthy. — Lauren Mifsud

Do you remember when you realized you enjoyed good beer? I do. I accompanied my father on a visit to a family friend’s home for dinner and a few beers. I was in college at the time and I knew there was a world outside of Bud Light but I hadn’t tapped it yet. Maybe I was afraid. After that night, there was no turning back. Our famiCourtesy photo. ly friend, “Uncle Greg,” was (and is) somewhat famous for his vast beer fridge. Time after time, Uncle Greg would descend into the basement and return with something “special.” My father and I were happy to dive in. I tried my first Guinness that night and loved it. We enjoyed Tetley’s English Ale, a couple selections from Samuel Smith’s lineup of wonderful products, and several others I can’t quite remember. I loved them all. What struck me about many of the brews we tried was how eminently drinkable they all were, and yet they were all quite flavorful and malty. Many of the selections were nitro cans, making the brews smooth and creamy. I’ve always felt that European brewers were especially skilled at crafting well-balanced brews. I thought about that night as I recently perused the import section of my local beer store. In today’s craft beer boom, I’ve certainly seen myself forget many of my former favorites from across the pond. There’s nothing quite like American craft beer today, but there’s nothing wrong with toasting our friends across the pond. Here are a few brews to help your taste buds fall in love with easy-drinking European brews all over again. These are all well-balanced brews with minimal hop character that welcome all. All the better, if you find any of these on tap, ask for a pint. Old Speckled Hen by Greene King/Morland Brewery This brew and its rich, creamy head bring back memories for me, particularly of special occasions when a special beer was called for. The brew is rich, but not too rich, with a smoothness that welcomes sip after sip. There’s just a touch of fruit notes that add some complexity and sweetness and the finish reminds me of toasted biscuits. Definitely sessionable with minimal bitterness. I’ve always prefered this from a nitro can, but you can find these bottled as well.

Belhaven Scottish Ale by Belhaven Brewing Co. This beer was a revelation for me, terrifically drinkable and flavorful. The pour is a rich amber but this is lighter than it looks. You’ll pick up sweeter notes of molasses, caramel and dark fruit, but just a little bit. The richness is subdued by a somewhat surprising crisp carbonation. Just a completely pleasing and satisfying brew. You’ll find these in bottles and cans.

Boddington’s Pub Ale by Boddington’s This is a bit lighter than some of the other selections, but it still has a richness and creaminess. The head is big and lingers. You’ll pick up pleasing notes of banana and toasted bread. This is the kind of beer you enjoy without even noticing it.

Fuller’s London Pride by Fuller Smith & Turner I love everything I’ve ever tried from this brewery. This English Pale Ale has a golden pour that borders on copper. You’ll enjoy subtle malty flavors of apple and caramel as you welcome mouthful after mouthful of this pleasingly smooth brew.

Jeff Mucciarone is a senior account executive with Montagne Communications, where he provides communications support to the New Hampshire wine and spirits industry.

I Must Try This Hoppy Oat Lucky by Throwback Brewery in North Hampton: My experience is that beers with oats are really good and really flavorful. The coupling of oats and hops is always intriguing and I’ve never been disappointed. This is a New England-style IPA, bursting with hoppy flavors and citrusy goodness, according to Throwback, which brewed this concoction with oats and dry-hopped it with El Dorado, Warrior and Amarillo hops. I’ll be seeking this out. What’s in My Fridge Finestkind IPA by Smuttynose Brewing Co. in Hampton Still one of my favorite all-around IPAs, the Finestkind has big citrusy hop flavors. I like to enjoy a few of these by a campfire. Cheers!

• Shamie Royston,

ly Sennott at ksennott@

A long-time New York jazz-pianist fixture who’s contributed work to such leaders as Tia Fuller and Sean Jones, Royston delivers her expressions with no small amount of mathematical percussiveness. That’s not to say she’s a bink-bink-bonker, more like a front-row student who weighs space and measures how best to fill it. She’s obviously had so much Jones jammed into her head that she couldn’t help but whip out a whiz-bang Vegas-hotel-grandopening jam (“Push”), which puts trumpeter Josh Evans and her two sax guys through their paces, but the mixing-board LEDs quiet down for the title track, at least for a while, as she fingers out a Chopsticks-like rhythm before laying down some metallic, lightly aggressive riffage; you can practically smell the leather. That one’s an odd but agreeable patchwork that spotlights her range; what I like about it is that it makes the listener want to hear what she’ll try next. I don’t remember using the word “firebrand” before in these pages, but Royston is that. A — Eric W. Saeger To get

Man, I was prepared to tear this one to shreds, feeling #FullyArmed after re-reading an old 2011 “Worst Hipster Band” thread on (Radiohead won, with Arcade Fire and Neutral Milk Hotel tying for second place). If this Brooklyn loner had sounded the least bit like Bon Iver, all you’d have seen on this page was a smoking crater, but the Gods of Wimpiness have smiled this day. Lipton is nothing like what I expected, tabling some cleverly written mope-indie, decorating it with his uncannily Seal-like voice and finally (why did it take so long for someone to try this?) tasering it with (still mellow) vocal parts with the reverb literally cranked to ten. There’s a Jamie Liddell-ish neo-blues angle at work here as well; I fear that this guy actually likes music and is totally qualified to make records. The end is near, I’m telling you. A+ — Eric W. Saeger

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases • June 15 is quite the busy week of new CD releases, starting with Queen, the new album from Lil Wayne lamprey Nicki Minaj! Her 2014 album The Pinkprint saw a return to her hip-hop roots (in its way), so she has every right to rip off Kendrick Lamar or whatever she’s planning for this one, which, as usual, has so many producers and feats that she might as well call it It’s a Mad Mad Mad World of Too Many Cooks, but feel free to let the Billboard Matrix hypnotize you into downloading this new set of glorified ringtones so that you can frighten little old ladies who stopped being edgy when Lawrence Welk was cool. Here, it’s the single, “No Frauds,” made of the following ingredients: 1990s snap-dance, autotune, Drake and Lil Wayne in phoned-in cameos and 50 name-checks of Ellen Degeneres, of all people. Government officials can neither confirm nor deny that all the comets in our galaxy recently changed course on purpose in order to prevent this record from turning more tween minds into oatmeal. • Not to be outdone by Minaj, Christina Aguilera is dropping some competing summertime Tilt-a-Whirl ambience for Mountain Dew-guzzling tweens, in the form of an album titled called Liberation! During the 1980s, when aging celebrity divas started working as “guest panelists” on TV game shows, viewers felt sorry for their misfortune and mailed cans of beans and small sums of money to them, care of Los Angeles General Delivery, but now that Christina and Katy and all the other divas are slumming at The Voice and whatnot, the Bingo halls are full of grandmothers marveling over Botox and “how nice rock ’n’ roll is these days,” which brings us to the single, “Accelerate,” a trap exercise that would be boring if it didn’t have some semblance of a rhythm, and some weirdness from Ty Dolla $ign. • Cripes sakes, didn’t I just beat up on some new record from neodeep-house wastes-of-time Chromeo the other week? Why on earth am I having to deal with some new album called Head Over Heels if I did that already? Let me go look, OK, I’m back. Hmph, no, it was a year ago. So I guess that’s how long my secret pain lasts, a year, and here I go again on my own, having to listen to the new single, “Bad Decision,” a ripoff of Prince by way of Jamie Liddell, full of funky chords that go nowhere and a vocal line that sounds like it was written by someone trying to troll me into going off on one of my stupid rants. Nope. • Just when you’d forgotten The English Beat like everyone else, including their parents, you suddenly have to deal with a new album called Here We Go Love! These guys are so broke and unloved these days that there’s not even a proper advance single, just a snippet of some new song called “The Love You Give Lasts Forever,” a boring song that sounds like Blues Traveler but without the harmonica that makes it barely tolerable to listen to Blues Traveler. — Eric W.

Poetry reading series returns to Robert Frost Farm

Call ahead seating available. Woodbury Court | 124 S River Rd Bedford, NH | 603-232-1953


Poets and poetry lovers convene once again at the Robert Frost Farm in Derry for the annual Hyla Brook Reading Series, which kicked off last month and continues monthly through September. Most events feature two readings: one by a nationally renowned special guest poet, and one by a member of the Hyla Brook Poets, a poetry group that meets regularly at Robert Frost Farm. The next event is on Friday, June 15, and will feature poet and 2018 Frost Farm Prize Judge Melissa Balmain and, in place of a Hyla Brook Poet, Susan de Sola, who was selected by Balmain as the winner of this year’s Frost Farm Prize. While the special guest poets represent a variety of poetry styles, the Hyla Brook Poets focus on metrical poetry, which is poetry that adheres to fixed form, as opposed to free verse poetry. “Most poetry written nowadays is free verse, so the Hyla Brook Poets have made it their mission to promote the writing and teaching of formal poetry, the type that Robert Frost wrote, because hardly anyone does,” Robert Crawford, director of Frost Farm Poetry, said. “The mission of the series, however, is simply to bring fantastic poets to Frost Farm, and that includes all kinds of poetry.” Balmain, who resides in Rochester, New York, writes primarily humorous poetry. She is the editor of the comic verse journal Light and winner of the Able Muse Book Award for her poetry collection Walking in on People. She also teaches humor writing, poetry writing and journalism at the University of Rochester. “I tend to see the comedy in life, even when the situations I’m writing about are dire,” she said. “I think now, more than ever, perhaps, a lot of us are in need of humor to get us through the day, so I try to help fill that need … with poems that are entertaining, honest and accessible.” At the June event, Balmain will not only read her poetry, which will include a new poem she wrote just for the series, but will also give a talk about metrical poetry and “the importance of constraints in creativity.” “Having constraints like rhyme and meter often sparks greater creativity,” she said. “It forces you to push beyond that first easy idea that you have and go for something more interesting, so that’s what I’ll be talking about.” The Frost Farm Prize is a yearly

national poetry contest limited to metrical poetry, the winner of which receives $1,000 and the chance to be a featured poet in the Hyla Brook Reading Series. De Sola’s winning poem, “Buddy,” was one of 1,123 entries this year. It tells a story in 81 lines about a friendship between a young woman and man from disparate backgrounds, and the woman’s later realizations and regrets. De Sola will read “Buddy” and some of her other poems at the event. At each event, following the two readings, there is an intermission, during which books by the featured poets are available for purchase. It closes with an open mike, where attendees have an opportunity to share their original poetry. “Every poet, at one point or another, starts out reading at open mikes,” Crawford said. “It’s a nice way to get experience and kind of take that next step; from there, maybe you get invited to read somewhere else, then you get published, then you come back [to the series] as a featured reader yourself.”

Granite State Daylighting 603-606-1366 121493

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking died the same week that Lisa Genova’s new novel was released. This was a strange bit of serendipity given that Genova’s fifth book, Every Note Played, is about an extraordinary man diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the same disease that Hawking had. Genova’s character is a concert pianist that we meet waking up in his opulent condominium on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston not long after his ALS diagnosis. Richard lives alone, but he’s about to be visited by his ex-wife, from whom he’s been divorced for about three years. Karina and Richard aren’t on good terms, apparently because of the infidelities that led to the divorce. But she heard about his diagnosis from friends and feels compelled to visit. It takes only about 10 minutes for him to call her a vindictive rhymes-withwitch, and for her to smash an expensive bottle of wine on a counter, spitting out, “This one smells like cherries.” Not your classic romance. As the disease progresses, however, Karina is unwillingly caught up in Richard’s life again, as his latest girlfriend leaves him and he refuses to contact his father and his brothers in New Hampshire, from whom he is estranged. As he grows increasingly immobile, she accepts him back into their home, setting up a hospital bed in the den where his beloved piano once was. Karina is also a talented pianist, though she doesn’t share her former husband’s obsession with Schumann and Bach. Her interest is jazz, and she was at the brink of a promising career in New York when Richard took a position in Boston, which confined her to the suburbs and a stultifying existence teaching piano in her living room. For a while, she blamed Richard, but once he left and their only child moved to Chicago for college, she ran out of excuses for why she has not fulfilled her potential. While Every Note Played is very much a story about a divorce and its aftermath, it’s chiefly a story about what it’s like to live with ALS, the degenerative disease that paralyzes about 20,000 Americans each year in slow motion. Colloquially known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, it’s the cause for which people dump buckets of ice water on their head in viral videos. That promotion raised $115 million for ALS research in 2014, but the hilarity surrounding the “ice-bucket challenge,” now a yearly event, stands in stark contrast to the devastation of the disease, which Genova conveys in heart-shattering detail:

“His motor neurons are being poisoned by a cocktail of toxins, the recipe unknown to his doctor and every scientist on the planet, and his entire motor neuron system is in a death spiral. His neurons are dying, and the muscles they feed are literally starving for input. Every twitch is a muscle stammering, gasping, begging to be saved.” Richard’s agony is not just in the creeping loss of movement in his fingers, hands and ultimately the rest of his body, but also in the corresponding loss of his greatest love, his glossy Steinway grand piano. After his right hand goes limp, he continues to defiantly play a concerto composed only for the left hand, always hoping the disease will suddenly tire of the game and stop its merciless progression. Unfortunately, for Richard, and for the reader, it will not. On one level, Every Note Played is utterly depressing; there is no cure for ALS, although a drug recently came on the market that seems to slow its progression by 30 percent. So it’s no spoiler to say that things will end badly. But as in her previous books, including the critically acclaimed Still Alice, the novel and film about a woman with early onset Alzheimer’s, Genova is adept at unpacking not just the life-destroying aspects of a serious disease but also those that are life-affirming. Even in the late stages of ALS, Richard wants to live; for all his suffering, he never starts dreaming of Vermont or Oregon, and his long-fractured relationships take on new depth, even as his home-health aides are propping up his head and vacuuming drool from his mouth. Genova is a neuroscientist with a Ph.D. from Harvard whose writing at times feels overly simplistic, but she can dazzle with a well-turned phrase, as in her description of Richard and Karina’s house as a museum of their marriage. In writing this book, she drew from the experiences of four men with ALS that she came to know, among them one of the producers of the film version of Still Alice. The experiences they shared imbue Genova’s writing with jarring realism that will do more than any viral video to raise research money. Her work, as such, is not so much entertainment as public service. Like the disease it chronicles, Every Note Played is relentless and remorseless in its insistence that we pay attention to this disease and its sufferers. Its frankness with the bodily indignities of ALS may repel some people, but get through it and you’ll never lift your arms without gratitude again. A- — Jennifer Graham

Ocean’s 8 (PG-13)

Debbie Ocean leaves prison and immediately begins work on a showpiece jewelry heist in Ocean’s 8, an in-universe sequel-ish thing to the George Clooney-fronted Ocean’s movies.

Both narratively and spiritually this is in the Clooney Ocean’s universe, featuring not just the occasional cameo from those films but also those films’ sense of joy and giddiness. Everybody appears to be having an absolute blast here. Debbie (Sandra Bullock) has apparently used her time in prison to mull over and perfect a flawless theft of flawless jewels. After stealing an assortment of life’s necessities (make-up, clothes, a coat, a fancy hotel room) with an almost balletic grace, she goes to find Lou (Cate Blanchett), her partner in most crime. Lou was not Debbie’s partner for the crime that got her incarcerated; that was Claude Becker (Richard Armitage), an artist with whom Debbie engaged in some easy money fraud and some romance. Easy money until she got caught and he rolled on her, leaving her to take all the blame. Though “never do a job in a job” is a kind of ruling principle of these movies, we quickly suspect that Debbie might be working more angles than just the theft. The score: a massive diamond necklace. The means: the Met Gala, the fancy ball when an actress like Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) might reasonably expect a jeweler to haul out their most expensive piece and let her wear it. Debbie and Lou enlist Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter), a designer with money woes, to dress Daphne and request the necklace. Then they bring on Amita (Mindy Kaling), a jewelry appraiser/maker/forger; Tammy (Sarah Paulson), a stay-at-home-mom/fence/topnotch organizer and con artist; Constance (Awkwafina), a pickpocket, and Nine Ball (Rihanna), a hacker. This kind of movie is at its very best when it is focused on the heist and luckily Ocean’s 8 is almost all heist. Actually, when it’s not

Ocean’s 8

heist it seems to be focused on the general awesomeness of this cast and that’s fine too. Because these ladies are awesome. Everybody, to a woman, seems like they are having the most fun. Everybody sparkles with happiness and I would easily enjoy watching a short that focused on any of these characters. Bullock and Blanchett have top-notch chemistry, exactly a woman (and a women-of-their-age) version of the kind of chemistry Clooney and Brad Pitt had in their run of these movies. And what do I mean by “women of their age”? I’m actually not sure, other than that when I saw these women, aged nearly 54 and 49 respectively in real life, I thought both “that feels right” and “that isn’t something I see enough of.” Oh, and also “yay!”ARated PG-13 for language, drug use, and some suggestive content, according to the MPAA. Directed by Gary Ross with a screenplay by Gary Ross & Olivia Milch, Ocean’s 8 is an hour and 50 minutes long and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

creates no-not-creepy-at-all miniatures, is struggling with the death of her difficult mother. Husband Steve (Gabriel Byrne) tries to be supportive; teenage son Peter (Alex Wolff) seems teenage-ishly removed from his family’s difficulties. Quiet and lonely 13-year-old Charlie (Milly Shapario), however, seems genuinely shaken by the death of her grandmother. She is a girl whose oddball drawings, nervous tongue clicks and use of a dead bird head in a weird wire sculpture signify her as, you know, “unique.” Annie, who mentions previous periods of extreme stress as well as a family history of mental illness, secretly attends a grief support group but doesn’t seem to find relief. Later, when a horrific event compounds her turmoil, she is pushed even further into a lost and desperate state. Hereditary excels at mood, tone and the emotional landscape of its characters. Rather than deliver a clear set of plot points, the movie is at its sharpest when it conveys the feeling of someone trapped in an emotional crisis. When Annie turns to the spiritual realm for comfort but finds herself believing she’s invited something evil in, we see Annie pleading with Steve to help her defeat a supernatural presence. We can see two potential reads of the situation — Steve

watching his wife have a medically diagnosable problem and Annie trying to get somebody to understand something fantastical. For a long while, the movie allows both of these interpretations to be true. The movie also showcases a big but interesting performance by Toni Collette. She’s a woman drowning in desperation, a woman half-aware of needing help but still convinced she can pull out of the skid. It was stressful to watch but I found it fascinating. If you’re looking for a clear narrative and a spooky monster, Hereditary isn’t your pick. The horror and anxiety the movie gets across is in the way it puts you in its characters’ emotions, not really in the way it sells the “events” of the movie. If I told you how this movie ended, that it was X bad thing tormenting this family, the picture you’d get of what this movie is would feel very different from what I watched, where only if you decided to take the final few scenes at face value can you really decide what this movie is. (And this assumes I even correctly understand the “answer” to this movie.) Up until maybe the final 30 minutes, maybe even later, this movie doesn’t necessarily lock itself in to one kind of solution or another. Hereditary ultimately is not my cup of spooky tea but it is well-made, dark and deep and not your average bag of jump scares and bland horror. If you enjoy horror that is brain-twisting, this corner of the evolving genre may be for you. B Rated R for horror violence, disturbing images, language, drug use and brief graphic nudity, according to the MPAA. Written and directed by Ari Aster, Hereditary is two hours and seven minutes long and distributed by A24.

online declared) the worst movie I’ve seen this year. If I had to pick, I’d watch this again before I watched Action Point. Or Book Club. Or Phantom Thread. (Put Leslie Mann’s character from Phantom Thread into this movie and you have something I would definitely watch again.) The movie has a few bits of interesting ideas, dystopia-wise. Like a Chopped contestant with a basket of spray cheese and snack cakes, Sterling K. Brown has been given absolute garbage to work with, character- and dialogue-wise, but he does his best to create something watchable. Foster is doing what feels like late 1990s/early aughts Steve Buscemi/Paul Giamatti performance, which is weird and she probably doesn’t need to clear a space on her Oscar shelf but it is also attention-holding. Hotel Artemis isn’t good, even judging it by its probably intentional B-movie low-fi level, or worth seeking out or paying to see but, when it shows up on Netflix or Starz and you have nothing else to do or watch, there are worse entertainment options. C Rated R for violence and language throughout, some sexual references and brief drug use. Written and directed by Drew Pearce, Hotel Artemis is an hour and 33 minutes long and distributed by Global Road Entertainment.

nurse (Foster) at one such clinic, Hotel Artemis, makes the rules of the establishment — no weapons, no killing the other patients, no being rude to staff. The owner is a criminal called the Wolf King (Jeff Goldblum). Outside the hotel, a riot over the privatization of water has turned LA into a war zone. But, as the nurse says, it’s just another Wednesday at the Artemis with the usual string of patients: an arms dealer (Charlie Day), an assassin (Sofia Boutella), a bank robber (Sterling K. Brown) and his brother (Brian Tyree Henry) and eventually King Wolf himself. Helping the nurse tend to all of them is her orderly Everest (Dave Bautista, still in Drax mode). Eventually, Jenny Slate shows up as a police officer wounded during the riots, mainly, I think, to create a reason to unspool the nurse’s backstory. And then she disappears and is ultimately irrelevant, because tightly woven narrative is not this movie’s strong suit. Actually, this movie has no strong suit. The characters feel like they wandered out of some kind of Quentin Tarantino/Guy Ritchie fan fiction onto the set of a low-budget creepy-hotel horror movie. Having said that, and while I don’t understand how this got made at all, this isn’t the worst movie I’ve ever seen or (as a headline I saw

Market Days Homegrown Stage offers region’s best By Michael Witthaus

Along with highlighting downtown Concord businesses and area artisans, the 44th annual Market Days Festival has a lot of music. A South Street stage presented by the Capitol Center for the Arts welcomes a slate of indie acts like The Sea The Sea and The Huntress & Holder of Hands, singer-songwriter Heather Maloney and English slide guitar master Jack Broadbent, among others. The three-day event kicks off on Thursday, June 21, with local Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki and his trio. The fiddler is a mainstay on the New Hampshire music scene, and he’ll also appear with Dusty Gray Band when they perform on Friday, June 22, on in Bicentennial Square. Back in the late oughts and early teens, Tirrell-Wysocki was a member of JamAntics, a beloved group that’s splintered into a few different entities since disbanding a few years ago. Lucas Gallo, the group’s rhythm guitarist and singer, still plays occasionally and will do a solo set on the Festival’s final day. He also helps bring acts to the city; he and old bandmate Eric Reingold will again curate the Homegrown Music Stage this year. The 24 acts spread across the festival’s three days provide a great example of a vibrant local music scene. In a recent phone interview, Gallo said that the top-billed acts on each of the festival’s three days reflect a different focus. “Thursday is a little jammier, while Friday night is more bluegrass, acoustic country feel,” he said. “Saturday we’ll have much more of a funk and rock feel.” The final day’s closing set is also a CD release show. Trade, a soulful septet that includes Scott Solsky, George Laliotis, Chris Noyes and other veterans of the Concord music scene, will unveil its debut record. They’re preceded by 1990s tribute band Elden’s Junk, power trio From the Earth, Band Band, Dopamine and Trunk of Funk. As in past years, the Homegrown Stage is located in Bicentennial Square near two of the Capitol City’s most active venues for local music, True Brew and Penuche’s. The latter will host after parties each night: Fiesta Melon plays Thursday, Cold Engines appears Friday and Evidence Lies wraps things up on Saturday. True Brew and nearby Margaritas will have their patios open for outdoor music viewing. Most of the acts are local, with a few exceptions.

“The majority of the music on the Homegrown Stage ought to be from the Concord area,” Gallo said. “Then of course we always like to pull from around the state as well, and if there are bands that play in Concord on a regular basis … we certainly want to tip our hats to them as well.” The long running cultural exchange between Concord and Peterborough is represented by Band Band, formed in the wake of Ghost Dinner Band, a group that Cooper Leafe helped bring to the city at decade’s turn. “Coop and I go way back [and] he’s kind of got his finger on the pulse down there,” Gallo said. “He’s always been a great partner.” Other highlights include opening day sets from Sensitive Men, Supernothing, Evidence Lies and The Youngest Sun. Will Hatch, who released one of the year’s best CDs so far, plays with his band, part of a Friday trifecta that includes Diamond Joe and the Dusty Gray Band. Appearing early in the day Friday is Rhythm Crazies, doing a reunion show. “They were a local Concord band probably 20 years ago,” said Gallo, “So they reached out and wanted to reunite and play on the stage.” Although Eric Reingold is a member of several bands, including People Skills and Cold Engines, he’s limiting his playing time to the Friday after party. “He’s played with all of his bands over the years on the Homegrown Stage, so I think he was giving it a little bit of a break for some of the other bands to step in,” Gallo said. With three young children, Gallo himself is more focused on work and family

but still relishes an occasional return to the scene. “It’s fun; I get to play, book and organize it,” he said. “Reingold and I have worked so hard over the years to build it into its own animal so to speak, so I don’t want to let it go quite yet.” Market Days music in downtown Concord Homegrown Stage Thursday, June 21 The Youngest Sun, Evidence Lies, Varsity Material, Supernothing, Crawl Space, Sensitive Men, Hank & Chaz, Madison Simpson Friday, June 22 Dusty Gray Band, Will Hatch & Co., Diamond Joe, Chris Peters Band, Matt Poirer, Chelsea Paolini, Rhythm Crazies, Lil’ Penny, Don Bartenstein Saturday, June 23 Trade, Trunk of Funk, Dopamine, Band Band, From the Earth, Elden’s Junk, Hometown Eulogy, Lucas Gallo, Joe Messineo South Stage Thursday, June 21 Hometown Eulogy, Andrew of the North, Bossy Joe, Freese Brothers, Jordan TirrellWysocki, Oswald’s Magic Bullet Friday, June 22 Taiko Dojo Drums, Sensitive Men, Delaney, Cricket Blue, Ryanhood, Front Country, Jack Broadbent, The Huntress and Holder of Hands Saturday, June 23 In the Field Irish Dancers, Hoonah, Mr. Aaron, Ethyric, Heather Maloney, Matt Nakoa, All Our Exes Live In Texas, The Sea The Sea Full details at BY TODD SANTOS

The passing parade

Ninety-six-year-old Barney Smith of Alamo Heights, Texas, is known around those parts as the King of the Commode for his life’s work: more than 1,300 decorated toilet seats, all displayed in the retired master plumber’s Toilet Seat Art Museum. But now, he concedes, it’s time to put a lid on it: “I’m beginning to feel like I’d rather be in an air-conditioned home in a chair, looking at a good program,” Smith, who is bent with arthritis and uses a cane, told the Associated Press on May 22. Inside the metal-garage museum the collection includes toilet lids decorated with a chunk of the Berlin Wall, a piece of insulation from the Space Shuttle Challenger, Pez dispensers and flint arrowheads, along with the toilet lid from the airplane that carried Aristotle Onassis’ body back to Greece after his death. Smith told his wife, Louise, that he would stop at 500 pieces, but that was 850 lids ago. “If I would have just read my Bible as many hours as I spent on my toilet seats, I’d be a better man,” Smith said. Louise died in 2014, and Smith took a fall recently and broke some ribs. Now he’s looking for someone who will keep the museum intact: “This is my life’s history here.”


On May 20, as a handful of adults enjoyed the swings at Angel Park in southwest Atlanta, two children walked up and asked to use the swing set. The adults agreed and started to walk away, reported The (Macon, Georgia) Telegraph, when the boys, about 6 and 12 years old, pulled out rocks the size of baseballs and what appeared to be a black handgun. They threw the rocks, hitting one man on the calf and causing an abrasion, according to Atlanta police. The older boy held the gun and pointed it at the adults, who ran away as the boys ran in the opposite direction. Earlier in May, two children were reported for an alleged armed carjacking in the same neighborhood.

Compelling explanation


Claiming the shooting was an accident, Angelo Russo, 55, told police in Tatura, Victoria, Australia, he tripped over an eggplant during a dispute with a man who had run over his dog, which caused the gun Russo was carrying to go off, striking David Calandro in the head and killing him. Calandro and a friend had gone to Russo’s farm on Feb. 18, 2017, to buy some chilies, 9News reported, but as he drove away, Russo’s dog, Harry, began barking and chasing the vehicle. Calandro swerved toward the dog to “spook him,” the friend told a Victorian Supreme Court jury on May 23, but swerved too far, running over the dog instead. Russo pleaded guilty to manslaughter on May 25.


Pesky weeds around his garage caused a Springfield Township, Ohio, resident to resort to extreme measures: The unnamed homeowner tried to eliminate them with a torch, and instead set the garage on fire. Firefighters were called to the scene at 4 a.m. on May 24, where they found the detached garage “fully involved,” according to the Springfield News-Sun. The structure was a total loss, including tools and appliances inside, valued at $10,000 to $15,000.

Crime report

Patrick Gillis, 18, a senior at Highlands High School and a volunteer firefighter for the Pioneer Hose Fire Department in Brackenridge, Pennsylvania, told police he “just wanted to respond to a fire” on May 21, when he was arrested for starting a blaze in a vacant duplex where he used to live. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that witnesses told investigators Gillis was seen at the home before the fire started, then returned as a firefighter to help put it out. He admitted to setting a piece of paper on fire and putting it in the microwave, then leaving. The Allegheny County Fire Marshal’s Office estimated damage at $150,000, and Gillis was charged with arson.

Bright ideas

• Toronto police constables Vittorio Dominelli, 36, and Jamie Young, 35, had to call for backup in January during a raid on a marijuana dispensary after allegedly sampling some of the evidence. CTV News reported the officers called for help after they began hallucinating, one eventually climb-

ing a tree. In a May 23 press release, Toronto police announced the two officers had been suspended and now face criminal charges in the incident. • A senior prank went unexpectedly wrong for high school student Kylan Scheele, 18, of Independence, Missouri, when he was slapped with a three-day suspension on May 23 and barred from participating in graduation after putting his high school up for sale on Craigslist. Scheele said it was meant to be a joke. “Other people were going to release live mice ... I thought, let’s do something more laid back,” he told Fox 4. The ad for Truman High School listed attractive amenities such as newly built athletic fields, lots of parking and a “bigger than normal dining room.” A lawsuit filed against the school district by the ACLU of Missouri failed to reduce the punishment.

Still creepy

Before Chuck E. Cheese was a thing, it was ShowBiz Pizza, complete with the Rock-afire Explosion Band, an animatronic combo that is still the stuff of nightmares. On May 24, the Rock-afire Explosion Band was reunited at a new arcade bar in Kansas City, Missouri, also called Rock-afire. The band’s inventor, Aaron Fechter of Creative Engineering in Orlando, Florida, refurbished the band members with new masks, skin and costumes, and the playlist is set to include old standards as well as more contemporary hits. Bar owner James Bond was a huge fan of the band as a child: “You didn’t know whether they were fake or real,” he told The Kansas City Star. Visit
