Elections have consequences. Donald Trump became the president by winning more electoral votes than his opponent. Like it or not, those are the rules. As a result, when openings occur, he gets to nominate folks to be Supreme Court justices. His first nominee, Neil Gorsuch, won a seat on the highest court in the land by a 54-45 vote, largely along party lines. Most Democrats voted against him – not because he wasn’t qualified, but because they fear his future decisions. Now comes Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s second Supreme Court pick. One would expect the Democrats to vote against him just as they did with Gorsuch. But this time is different. Besides Democrats’ fear of his future decisions, there are issues with his actions as a young man. He is accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl when he was 17. He vehemently denies it. In the days before the most important day of his life, Brett Kavanaugh had the opportunity to prepare to answer Judiciary Committee questions that he knew would be coming in order to look convincing that the charges leveled at him were false. He also needed to convince the Senate committee that he could be a fair arbiter of some of the most pressing issues facing America. Instead, he attacked Democrats for their attacks on him. Huge mistake! It’s par for the course that the opposing party will attack the nominee with everything they can. Regardless, the nominee must avoid the temptation to strike back. He failed that test. I don’t know if he committed sexual assault in high school, but his testimony sure portrayed a guilty man. When asked if he ever got so drunk in high school that he may have passed out, he denied it and then asked the questioning senator if she had ever done that. Stupid! He was asked about definitions of terms that he penned in his yearbook, ones that some claim to be sexual in nature. He claimed that they weren’t. My guess is that whether or not he was telling the truth may be very provable. He testified that he was never at the party where his accuser claims the assault happened. This, too, after an FBI investigation, may be provable. Whether he remembers of not, if he was at that party, my guess is that, despite stellar judicial qualifications, his quest to be a Supreme Court justice will fail.

In a joint statement, the New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs, the City of Manchester and the New Hampshire Business Finance Authority announced that aerospace and defense contractor BAE Systems is finalizing plans to expand its operations into Manchester. BAE is one of the state’s largest employers and currently has five facilities in Hudson, Merrimack and Nashua. Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig and the city’s Board of Aldermen will consider details on the proposed expansion, which would be located on a 220,000-square-foot site at 3000 Goffs Falls Road in Manchester. Initially, BAE would aim to fill 400 positions at the facility. Mayor Craig wrote in a statement, “This is the first time the City of Manchester, the Department of Business and Economic Affairs and the Business Finance Authority have worked together to bring new, good paying jobs into the Queen City. We now have a successful model, and I look forward to continue promoting Manchester’s pro-business environment.”
A new report from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs showed that the Manchester VA Medical Center has improved its quality of service over the last year. Last year, a task force was convened to address issues at the medical center following a July 2017 story from the Boston Globe Spotlight team regarding concerns for patient safety and access to care. Since last July, the department reported, the center’s leadership team has been rebuilt, part of over 400 “hiring actions” and the creation of 70 new
positions. Additionally, the center created the Office of Community Care and a new Outpatient Recreation Therapy Program, along with tripling its provider agreements to more than 350 across the state. The center’s pharmacy and laboratory were also relocated to the first floor of the main campus for greater ease of access. Alfred Montoya, Jr., Manchester VA medical center director, wrote in a statement that “we continue to collaborate with veterans, community, state and federal partners, and our workforce to make improvements to bring greater quality to our care.”
The Granite State could see robust tourism numbers during the fall season, according to projections from the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development. The division reported last week that the state might see three million out-of-state overnight visitors this fall, who could spend $1.4 billion during their trips. These projections mark a 4.5-percent increase for visitors and a 5-percent increase for spending from last year. In its report, the division also noted that the fall season draws the largest percentage of visitors from outside New England to the Granite State. Taylor Caswell, commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs, said in a statement that the fall season represents “about 25 percent of New Hampshire’s total annual visitation.” The division has started a blog on visitnh.gov to provide suggestions of fall activities in New Hampshire. It will be updated three times a week with new events and destinations.
Catholic Medical Center and the New Hampshire Food Bank announced they will work with the Parish of the Transfiguration in Manchester to launch the “Preventative Food Pantry” program. Social workers and nutritionists at CMC will identify patients with chronic medical conditions and prescribe them access to healthy food and nutrition counseling. Providers will specifically look to help patients with conditions like hypertension, diabetes and obesity, as well as those who suffer from food insecurity. These patients can visit the parish’s food pantry twice a month to collect a box of healthy food specific to their diet restrictions. Patients will also check in with volunteer nurses to track their weight, blood pressure and blood sugar levels, among other health indicators. According to Eileen Liponis, executive director of the New Hampshire Food Bank, one in nine New Hampshire residents, including 11 percent of children, are food insecure.

MINORITY HEALTH COVERAGE
Nearly every minority group in New Hampshire has a lower rate of health coverage compared to white residents, according to a new report from the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation. The nonprofit analyzed U.S. Census Bureau’s 5-year estimates from 2012 to 2016, finding that 92 percent of white women and 89 percent of white men in the Granite State have access to healthcare coverage. However, coverage for other races peaked at 89 percent for Asian men and male Pacific Islanders. These rates dropped to 78 percent and 77 percent for black men and women, respectively, and as low as 76 percent for Hispanic men.

NEWS & NOTES
Erectile Dysfunction is Not A Sexual Death Sentence
If you can’t stand the side effects of drugs like Viagra®, or you don’t want to take drugs to be able to enjoy intimacy, onset erectile dysfunction feels like being issued a sexual death sentence. Let’s face it, erectile dysfunction can wreck your confidence, destroy your ego, damage your marriage, threaten a relationship and make you believe the best part of your life is over. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Over the last 15 years the Gold Standard Treatment in Europe, known as Pressure Wave Therapy, has helped hundreds of thousands reverse the symptoms of ED, reclaim their manhood and enjoy intimacy as often as they like, with no need for pills, needles or pumps. This therapy works well but we were not satisfied with these results alone. This is why we are the first in the nation to offer a combination therapy. PRESSURE WAVE -STEM CELL INTEGRATION THERAPY is now available and results are pouring in. John R. reports, “I’m 74 years old and had tried everything to get an erection. Nothing worked. I didn’t think anything could help me, until I tried this. Now I have the ability and the confidence to satisfy my wife in the bedroom. Thank you for giving me my sex life back!” Our success rate with these therapies is over 90 percent. The Pressure Wave-Stem Cell Integration Therapy helps remove plaque as it builds up in veins and arteries supplying blood to the penis, blood flow is restricted and you begin to lose your ability to get and maintain an erection. Left unattended, the vascular infrastructure of your penis begins to collapse. Tissues, veins
and nerves shrivel up. Your penis shrinks. And part of what makes you a man fades away. HOW PRESSURE WAVE -STEM CELL INTEGRATION THERAPY works and why it works so well... Ninety percent of all ED is caused by restricted blood flow to the penis. That means the key to restoring normal, healthy function is to restore normal, healthy blood flow. At our clinic, a male Registered Nurse performs a painless Doppler Ultrasound test to determine if blood flow is restricted and to what extent. If a blockage is found and you are cleared for treatment, the Nurse uses a hand-held device to focus sound waves on veins and arteries with obstructed blood flow. The waves move through tissue and 1) gently dissolve plaque that restricts blood flow; 2) activate your own stem cells that cause veins to regenerate and new blood vessels to grow and; 3) promote nerve growth that gives you greater sensitivity and more enjoyment. The treatments take about 20 minutes. There are no known side-effects and no recovery time. Umbilical Cord Stem Cells If your ED is mild to moderate, the Pressure Wave Therapy alone may solve your issues. If it is more severe, the Stem Cell Integration Therapy will optimize your results. We use Umbilical Cord Stem Cells. They are proven to be highly angiogenic, meaning they create new blood flow and regenerate tissue like nothing we have ever seen. Most men see significant improvement and are able to enjoy sex within three to five weeks.
Your next step is easy... Call now and return to intimacy without pills, needles, or pumps

that we can actually change Washington if we change the types of people we send to Washington. We should elect people who want to do their duty to serve their community. … For me, I looked at what we were getting out of Washington. New Hampshire is a very responsible state, and we try to do the best we can here locally. Having Washington, D.C., put demands on our state and take money from our state — I have a problem with that, and I think most Granite Staters have a problem with that. We shouldn’t be impeded by the federal government.

motivation to resolve this issue. ... I would also work toward taking steps to reducing the duplicity of work at the federal and state level. ... I would continue to look at how we can transfer authority back to the legislative branch, to make sure they’re writing our laws and not administrative agencies. Why do you feel New Hampshire would benefit from repealing and replacing Obamacare, and what legislation would you support or propose to replace it? I think it’s important to look at health care, real health care, because we’ve never had a free market health care approach. ... I think if we could take the government’s finger off the scale, where it guarantees certain subsidies for some and not for others, we can have greater transparency of costs. For instance, right now patients are not afforded the ability to know the cost of anything. People are paying different costs if they pay with cash versus insurance. We limit access and restrict citizens from buying health insurance where they would like. We can’t negotiate the price of medicine. I think all of those things drive up costs and act as barriers to reducing costs. People ought to be allowed to shop for the best product you can buy anywhere you like. And when we limit the amount
and medications as well. I think we should be allowing individuals and businesses to opt in to the Medicare system, and I believe that we should add a public option to the [Affordable Care Act’s] exchange so that there’s additional choice and competition in New Hampshire. My focus is on building on the success of the Affordable Care Act and making it work. We provide health care coverage for the workers at our business because it’s the right thing to do, and I think it’s the right thing for us as a country to make sure everyone has access to affordable health care.
As an Executive Councilor, what do you feel were the most effective measures you voted for to combat the opioid crisis, and what solutions will you support in Congress? I think the implementation of Medicaid expansion was the most impactful vote that I took on the Executive Council, because it’s expanded health care to 53,000 individuals in our state. Beyond that, any grant that is going out with state or federal funds to help with this crisis has come through the Executive Council. So I’ve gotten to know most of the organizations around the state that are doing incredible work, and they continue to need more resources over time. We’re experiencing this crisis because we didn’t have support available for individuals when the cheap drugs started hitting the streets and the over-prescribing problem was at its peak. I was proud that we also approved grants for local law enforcement to be able to disrupt the trafficking 7
of facilities or providers, that also has a cost effect. I think there are many things that we can do that bring down the cost of health care. … We should motivate folks in Congress by making sure they live under the same structure and rules and laws that have been passed. When they understand how difficult it is for families to purchase health care insurance and the limitations they have and the burdens that they face, I think you’ll see them move very quickly to establish a system that is more reasonable, one that provides more opportunity and transparency of costs and reduced costs.
You support President Trump’s proposal to build a wall on our southern border. Why do you back this plan, and what other measures will you pursue regarding immigration? America is the most generous nation on the planet, when you look at what we have provided for the world — yet we only represent about 6 percent of the world’s land mass and about 5 percent of the world’s population. We take care of 94 percent of the world’s population, from a financial standpoint, a human capital standpoint and providing military protection. So at some point, you have to say, “How do we sustain this system?” Well, we sustain this system the way our country was found- 7
Pappas 6 of drugs and work to keep our communities safe. I think that’s another piece of the equation that we have to continue to make a focus. Local law enforcement can’t do it alone. They need help at all levels of government, and they need to ensure that we have treatment available for individuals.
You were prompted to run for Executive Council after the board voted to defund Planned Parenthood. Why is this such an important issue for you and the people of New Hampshire? This is an important issue because it’s about the basic health services that people receive. It’s about their health and well-being and their economic security. I ran for the Executive Council to push back against an extreme ideology that was putting up roadblocks for individuals’ abilities to access basic care in our state, and we were able to turn that decision around. At the end of the day, I don’t think that politicians should have any role in determining the availability of critical health services for women and men across our country. I think we’ve got to ensure that people have access to that level of basic care. You’ve said that you’d like to pursue a “bipartisan immigration strategy” in Washington. How will you aim to achieve that considering the divisiveness of the issue? I think you can survey the members of Congress today and you’d find majority support for a permanent fix for [Deferred Edwards 6 ed. We have an immigration system, and we welcome all immigrants from around the globe. But we have a process by which that happens. We have to secure our border, because any reasonable country would do the same; in fact, most countries secure their border. That’s not wrong, and that’s not something we should be ashamed of. We permit a million people legally into the country every year. I think when we look at our immigration system, we want one that welcomes new immigrants and has a legal process that is adhered to.
How will you implement your plan for a “cost-conscious higher education system,” and why should we expand degree and course credit options instead of tuition assistance? I think we have to have choice and look at some of the things that are emerging — for instance, online education. Southern New Hampshire University right here is the fastest-growing online university. The cost is reasonable there, so you also have some high school students who are able to take their high school courses while also taking some online college courses at night. … We should be looking for ways to reduce that cost and reduce that burden. There are ways to reduce a bachelor’s degree to a three-year commitment rather than a four-year commitment. [There are] many different ways that we can become more cre-
Action for Childhood Arrivals]. But yet nothing gets done, because the leadership ties it up in a debate over the budget, and they use immigrants as political pawns. And that’s just wrong. This is an issue that we’ve got to address, because it has impacts for individuals here in New Hampshire who’ve had their status questioned under the Trump administration. It has impacts for our economy, and for our ability to be able to grow and thrive as a state. So I believe we do need comprehensive immigration reform, and I do think there is a space to pursue it in a bipartisan way. When I go around the state, the top concern I hear from local businesses is they don’t have enough people to take positions they have open. We have many seasonal businesses in New Hampshire that couldn’t get the number of workers through the H-2B visa program that they were depending on to be able to keep their doors open and keep their businesses thriving. Visa reform and raising the cap on seasonal workers that come to our state is an important measure for our economy to be successful over the long term. In addition to that, I believe that we should fix DACA and allow individuals who know no other country but the United States to become full-fledged citizens. They shouldn’t be sent back to a country that they don’t know in a dangerous part of the world. And I think we benefit from recognizing that immigrants built this country. At my business, we employ several new Americans, including refugees from countries like Syria. I am so thankful that our country has welcomed
them here, that my city and my state embraces them and that they are thriving as new Americans. To think that they could be in a very dangerous place and have their lives at risk I think shows the benefit of America continuing to welcome people from distressed parts of the world as asylum-seekers and as refugees. Why do you support raising the minimum wage and tying it to inflation? Would you support other economic policies to help boost the salaries of Granite Staters, like lowering tax rates? We are tied to the federal minimum, which stands at $7.25 [an hour] and has been there for 10 years. It’s long past the time to raise it, and I believe we should tie it to inflation so that workers won’t have to wait around another decade until there’s a supportive Congress to give them the type of cost-of-living increase that they deserve. I think this is an issue of economic justice. I think we need to reward hard work, and I think New Hampshire in particular loses out to our neighbors because we don’t have the same incentives to attract workers to stay here within our own state. … My focus will always be on working and middle-class families. I think the tax bill that was passed last year was done in an irresponsible way, because it’s a huge giveaway to the highest income earners, to the biggest corporations, and it was done without any public process. I think there needs to be transparency in Congress. We need a reform to the rules process. We need to ensure that there’s a pub- 8

Part of that is whether we’re securing our the government has done here as well is put its finger on the scale by guaranteeing money, and border, or making sure illicit drugs aren’t being because you have guaranteed money for stu- mailed or brought into our country. ...

What benefits do you see in having tuitionfree community colleges and public universities, and how would you propose funding student education in this way? We have the highest student debt load of any state in the country, because we provide the least amount of state support for our public universities. That’s not a recipe for economic success. Students shouldn’t be taking out a mortgage to pursue a degree and have a crushing burden for decades after. I think we need to look for ways to lower the costs of college, and that’s an important issue for us right here in the Granite State. At the federal level, I would support lowering student loan interest rates [and] expanding Pell grants and tuition assistance programs. I think Edwards 7 children under the age of 5 who are taking psychiatric medication, for instance. … So a lot of young people are growing up and experiencing life through medication. … Those things are much more in the arena of public health. Law enforcement has to step in when ... crimes are perpetrated or illicit drugs are being used or legal drugs are being abused or misused.
You’ve said New Hampshire residents would benefit from a simplified tax code and reduced tax rates. Why is that, and would you also propose raising the federal minimum wage? New Hampshire operates in a very responsible way. When we have other states that maybe have overspent their budgets or have done things that put their state at risk from a financial health perspective, they then demand resources from the federal government. Well, those are tax dollars coming from New Hampshire going someplace else. We should do whatever we can to keep those tax dollars right here in our state. … What you see now, when we have record-low unemployment, is that wages are starting to increase because there is
we need to invest in skills training and career and technical education programs for students who want to learn workforce-ready skills and get right into the workforce here in our state. I think for us to continue to thrive as a state, we need to be attracting young people to go to college here and start their careers here.
What’s something nobody is talking about right now that you think will become a critical issue in the next few years? We have an affordable housing crisis in New Hampshire, and there is a lack of stock of housing that is affordable for young people and workers. And it’s not just in one region of our state; I hear about this everywhere ... This is another hurdle for us to be able to attract young talent to our state, to make sure we have a fully functioning economy that allows working people to succeed.

You’re robbing businesses and individuals of the opportunity to actually gain skills and a healthier economy by having government interference. I am not in favor of a minimum federal wage of $15, or any such other notion.

Again, I think the issue that is emerging that has not gotten the attention it deserves is just how much medication that we’re pumping into the bodies of so many young people. ... It’s a cultural issue, where we have decided that we’re not going to look for other approaches to deal with some of the issues we have in our society. There’s medication for almost anything that you can think of now, and I think that’s having a dramatic impact on the health and well-being of our young people in particular.

Bureau helping disabled workers finding its footing es, remove themselves from other state or federal benefit programs they might be using.
By Scott Murphy
Though recent financial troubles have prompted layoffs and consolidated offices, the New Hampshire Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation is finding ways to continue helping Granite Staters with disabilities find work and become independent. Bureau director Lisa Hinson-Hatz said the field of vocational rehab began in 1920 as the federal government looked to help disabled veterans from World War I find employment after they returned. States began launching their own efforts in the coming decades when it was clear a centralized approach wouldn’t be as effective. New Hampshire hired its first vocational rehab employee in 1944. Since then, the bureau has become a part of the New Hampshire Department of Education and grown into a multi-office operation. The bureau is currently assisting 3,400 individuals who are blind or visually impaired; deaf or hard of hearing; mentally or physically handicapped, or have substance use disorder. In 2018, more than 500 employers hired 610 workers through the bureau, most of whom are now full-time employees. “Everyone comes to us with different disabilities and career aspirations, so we want to work with them as individuals,” said Hinson-Hatz. “We partner with our customers to understand how we can [use] their transferable skills and put them on the right career path.” Businesses can work with the bureau to hire and retain these workers. “We’re not the disability police; we’re here to help,” said Hinson-Hatz. “There is no scary question that a business can ask that we wouldn’t be willing to answer.” As employers struggle to find workers due to low unemployment, Hinson-Hatz said, individuals with disabilities offer a viable talent pool. Plus, she noted, after they start working and developing a steady income, they can start paying taxes and, in many cas-

Over the last couple years, the bureau has been grappling with financial challenges. After he was confirmed as the state’s Commissioner of Education, Hinson-Hatz said, Frank Edelblut requested an audit of the Department of Education and increased the frequency of the agency’s financial reports. The results revealed immediate financial concerns. Since as far back as 2012, the bureau’s past leadership had overspent millions more than what was allowed by the agency’s budget, according to a news release from the governor’s office. As a result, the bureau was tasked with making budget cuts and seeking federal aid. The governor’s office announced in September that the state will receive $1.23 million in additional support from the U.S. Department of Education, the first time the bureau had requested a supplemental grant. At the state level, the bureau laid off 10 workers and closed its Nashua office, consolidating services with its Manchester location. It was also forced to create a wait list. “It’s really hard when someone who needs your services comes to you and you have to tell them they need to go on a wait list,” Hinson-Hatz said. The bureau has tried to compensate for its office closure in Nashua; counselors have been offered pro bono space at other local agencies in the city, for example. “Those steps freed up money that we were able to divert specifically into keeping staff and continuing to offer counseling services,” said Hinson-Hatz. The bureau was able to open up services to 100 new individuals in late September. Hinson-Hatz said they will closely watch employment figures over the next year. “I do think we’re only going to go up from here,” she said.

NEWS & NOTES
QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Aging workforce struggles In a recent survey, AARP and New Hampshire’ Business and Industry Association found that Granite State companies might struggle with an increasingly aging workforce. Respondents to the survey included 53 executives from companies belonging to the association. Of these respondents, 28 said it is likely that their company will face challenges with an aging workforce, while 37 reported that their company does not have a formal plan to manage their aging workforce and increased retirements. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Among the 53 respondents, 19 reported that at least half of their employees are age 50 or older. Eight of these companies revealed that over 70 percent of their workforce is at least 50 years old.
Continued overdose increase Last week, the New Hampshire Office of Chief Medical Examiner released a summary of its drug death data from 2017. Of the 1,817 deaths investigated by the office last year, 488 (or 27 percent) were caused by drug overdoses. That’s a slightly higher total than the 485 drug deaths in 2016 and continues a multi-year trend of increasing overdoses. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The last decline in drug deaths noted in the report was five years ago, when overdoses dropped from 201 in 2011 to 163 in 2012. Since then, the number of overdoses has increased roughly 143 percent to the 488 total reported for last year.
No more drought The latest map released by the National Drought Mitigation Center shows that the vast majority of New Hampshire is no longer experiencing the “abnormally dry” conditions that persisted over the summer months. About 96 percent of the state is showing no signs of drought-like conditions, with only small amounts of abnormal dryness remaining in Carroll and Coos counties. QOL Score: +1 Comment: New Hampshire’s drought conditions peaked in midJuly, when the center released a map showing that all of the state was abnormally dry and about 62 percent was experiencing moderate drought. At least 40 percent of the state remained abnormally dry until the week of Sept. 11.
Mediocre time-off policies In a new report from the National Partnership for Women and Families, New Hampshire earned a D+ for the scope of its time-off protections. The study found that New Hampshire offers fewer extended leave guarantees than half of the 50 states. This includes guarantees for job-protected family and medical leave, paid and flexible sick days and worker-friendly unemployment insurance laws. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The Granite State earned a total of 15 points based on multiple categories. By comparison, Massachusetts earned an A and topped the list with 160 points, followed by Rhode Island with an A(125 points), Connecticut with a B+ (90 points), Vermont with a B (60 points) and Maine with a B- (55 points). QOL Score: 90 Net change: -2 QOL this week: 88

SPORTS DAVE LONG’S LONGSHOTS
Sox post-season starts tomorrow
The regular season is in the books for the Red Sox, and as Coach B likes to say, it’s on to New York, or is it Oakland? When you read this, we’ll know which it is, but as I file this column I don’t. It was a glorious season with high points that included a grand slamfueled 17-2 April start that set the tone for the year, the four-game August Fenway sweep of the Yanks to effectively settle the AL East race, and my favorite, the basesloaded Mookie Betts and then-Toronto’s J.A. Happ that Mookie won by depositing Happ’s 13th pitch over everything into Lansdowne Street. Most enjoyable was that the whole always seemed much better than the sum of its parts. True they had 208 homers, but the Yanks hit 60 more and only four guys — J.D. Martinez, Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers — were over 20. Only two — J.D. and Mookie — hit over .300 or drove in over 100 — J.D. and Bogaerts — and the bottom third of the order was mostly a black hole. Yet they led the AL in runs scored. Ditto on the pitching side, where the stats don’t overwhelm you. Rick Porcello was the win leader with 17, but the ERA was 4.28 ERA and next best David Price had stretches of being awful and lights out in winning 16. Four starters had doubledigit wins, but long DL stints kept Chris Sale and Eduardo Rodriguez to lower than it would have been 12 and 13 wins respectively. And there’s the much discussed bullpen that led baseball in WAR. Which is exhibit A in the sports court trial to show how meaningless that stat is and how dumb the people are who use it as a guide to voting for MVP and Cy Young. But that is an argument for another day. In actuality, the pen ran so hot and cold it
enters the playoffs with only Craig Kimbrel having a clearly defined role. Having said that, they still broke a 106-year-old team record by winning 108. All amid a rash of big injuries that included Sale, Betts and Dustin Pedroia unexpectedly missing the entire year. But in Patriot manner others kept stepping in to do the job as people went down, which is the real story of this season — their resilience. They were never out of it no matter who was playing. Best evidenced by the amazing eighth- and ninth-inning comeback win in Atlanta won by Brandon Phillips’ ninthinning homer in his first Red Sox game. However, none of it matters now. The new season begins tomorrow, Oct. 5, with the start of the best-of-five ALDS at Fenway Park. With two other 100-pluswin teams — Houston, who has the best pitching, and power-laden New York — competing, along with sneaky good Cleveland, getting to the World Series will not be easy. But that’s why they play the game, and before they do here are a few things to consider. Issue No. 1: Chris Sale — it’s all injury-related. Is he 100 percent? Is the loss in velocity just from messing up his mechanics dealing with the original arm and shoulder pain or is it more that? If so, can he undo that by tomorrow? Issue No 2: I hate sounding like a northern version of the Prince of Darkness, but I have no confidence the bullpen is up to the task. That includes Kimbrel, who has yet to show he can deliver in the biggest moments. And if the maddening Joe Kelly is kept on the roster because he throws 100, I might jump off the Brady-Sullivan Tower. Having said that, I like that Alex Cora is going with just 11 pitchers and that the pen will be fortified by starters Steve Wright, E-Rod and maybe even Nathan Eovaldi for tomorrow at least if Sale struggles. It gives them added versatility, guys who can go more than an inning
with no sweat and a quality lefty to a pen that doesn’t have one. Maybe that will be the elixir. Issue No. 3: Sale, Porcello and especially Price are battling postseason demons by having (gulp) not even one postseason win between them. On the bright side, at 0-13 in those starts, maybe the law of averages is on their side. Because they’re too good to have been this bad for this long. New York: If it’s the Yanks, their power is scary. Especially since they’re top-heavy with right-handed hitters and the Sox are so lefty at the top of their rotation. But their vaunted bullpen has been shaky, especially vs. Boston, while the starters are hot and cold and are up against Boston’s relentless line-up. I see it as a toss-up that could go either way depending on who gets hot at the right time. Oakland: Can’t say I know all that much about Oakland. But they can hit and do it with power with four guys over 20, Khris Davis the MLB leader with 48 and hitting 227 overall where everyone but catcher Jonathan Lucroy was in double digits. As for pitching, the starters are nothing to write home about, but with the bullpen winning nearly as many as the starters they fight you all the way to the last out. To beat them, the Sox need to get to their starters early. Prediction: Now that I’ve gotten all the bad out of the way, I have the same feeling I used to have when the Patriots faced Indy in the early years, where there was always concern, if not fear, for the damage Peyton Manning and their offense could do. But in the end, the Pats seemed to find a way to win. With their pitching, Houston is the scariest obstacle, but that’s Round II. For now I like the Sox in Round I, but to get that done, Mookie and JD will have to have big series at bat to score enough runs to move on. Email Dave Long at dlong@hippopress. com.

MARK MULCAHY Mark Mulcahy first went to the Boys & Girls Club for a very simple reason: it helped make new friends after his family had moved to town three weeks into the school year. Those new friends were great at helping him meet even more kids. He liked the Club so much that, even when he couldn’t catch the bus, he’d walk all the way from his home on the west side. The gym was his passion—especially basketball—and he logged many hours on the hardwood. Eventually it was on to high school and other pursuits. When an NBA career didn’t materialize, he found a new passion in real estate, eventually leading him to Bedford-based Keller Williams Metropolitan, where he is the operating partner, and also back to the Boys & Girls Club, where he just concluded 10 years on its Board of Directors.
…. Going to the Club taught me the value of being nice to people. I didn’t know anyone when we moved here, and I was shy. People at the Club were very nice and made me feel part of it all. I never forgot how that made me feel. So anytime I saw a new kid at the Club or in school, I always tried to get to know them because I knew what that was like. That always stayed with me and I still make a point to do it today ….

IN PRAISE OF
Poutine from New England’s Tap House Grille. Photo by Matt Ingersoll.
By Matt Ingersoll
A hearty dish of french fries topped with gravy and cheese curds, poutine originated in Canada but has found its way onto menus throughout New Hampshire — both in its traditional form and with embellishments that elevate it to a whole new level. “It definitely is something that I enjoy having whether I am happy or sad or whether I am hungry or not hungry,” said Dan Lagueux, co-owner of New England’s Tap House Grille in Hooksett. Lagueux moved to the Granite State from Québec, Canada, about 15 years ago and now offers an amped up version of poutine on his menu. “The last two years or so, poutine has exploded everywhere around here,” he said. Despite its recent local surge in popularity, poutine has for decades been associated with Québécois cuisine, either as an appetizer on restaurant menus or in larger portions as a full meal. Local restaurant owners, chefs and food personalities discuss poutine’s origins, legacy and growing Americanization.
Pristine poutine According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the word “poutine” — traditionally HIPPO | OCTOBER 4 - 10, 2018 | PAGE 14
pronounced “PUTS-in” — is believed to have come from the Québécois slang term meaning “mess.” Chef Denny Corriveau, owner of WildCheff Enterprises, is a Manchester native of French-Canadian descent who has served as one of the judges of the New Hampshire PoutineFest, an annual event held each June. Corriveau said there are several components to poutine that are necessary for it to replicate its “traditional” version in Québec. “Certain things definitely matter. The fries have to be crisp, not soggy, the cheese curds should not completely melt over them, and the gravy should be a mixture of beef and chicken stock, basically twothirds beef to a third chicken,” he said. “Those are the three primaries to understanding poutine. But beyond that, you can take it to wherever you want.” Lagueux said cheese curds are byproducts of the cheese-making process that are known for their mild taste and chewy texture that earned them the nickname “squeaky cheese.” “There’s a town in Québec called Coaticook that does a big part of the cheese for [the province],” he said. “As soon as you say ‘fromages Coaticook,’ that means curd cheese to people. It’s like the Kleenex brand of tissues.”
The poutine scene In New Hampshire, Chez Vachon on Manchester’s West Side serves what is arguably the most traditional version of poutine around here. But the Granite State is home to many other variations of the comfort food dish. The poutine available at New England’s Tap House Grille in Hooksett is topped with a peppercorn sherry demi-glace, Parmesan cheese and fresh rosemary before being finished off with a spray of white truffle oil. Lagueux said he added it to the appetizer menu about six years ago and it is still one of his most popular sellers. “We do the Parmesan cheese to give it a little bit more texture on the fries … and then the white truffle oil is there for that little punch of aromas,” he said, “so that the fragrance really comes right out and lightens up the whole dish.” To maintain the consistency of the cheese’s squeakiness, Lagueux said, he serves the cheese curds at room temperature. “If you didn’t refrigerate it, you would have that squeakiness all the way through to the end. Refrigerating the curds changes its molecular structure and makes it more smooth and creamy, and less squeaky,” he said. Over at Bar One in Milford, executive
chef Kimmy Lavoie almost didn’t put poutine on her menu when the restaurant opened two years ago, because she didn’t think at the time that it fit with its theme of Southern-inspired American comfort food. But she ultimately decided to at the request of the eatery’s owner; that same poutine, layered with a black pepper duck confit gravy, roasted garlic cheddar curds and crunchy scallions, ended up winning Best Poutine at the New Hampshire PoutineFest in 2017. “I always try to make something that you can’t get anywhere else in town, which was where the duck confit came in,” Lavoie said. “[The gravy] is loaded with actual duck meat too. It’s turned into one of our most popular things, especially after we took home the PoutineFest [championship] belt.” Bar One’s poutine comes in a small appetizer size and a large for people who want to eat it as a meal. On Friday, Oct. 5, from 4 to 10 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 6, from noon to 9 p.m., Lavoie said, the restaurant will be setting up a poutine tent, serving medium-sized versions of its award-winning duck confit poutine during the Milford Pumpkin Festival. “It’s going to be a little bigger in size than what we have here in the restaurant for a small, but not as big as the large for sure,” she said. “We’ll be serving it in little
paper boats so that people can walk around with it.” Some eateries like The Red Arrow Diner offer a plethora of add-ons to customize the poutine, such as eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, chicken tenders or steak tips. Others completely make it their own creation — like the “pit poutine” from Riverside Barbeque Co. in Nashua (topped with a choice of pulled pork or chili), or a poutine made with tater tots from Bonfire Country Bar & Restaurant in Manchester. Corriveau has used his background as a wild game chef to his advantage, creating everything from a braised rabbit poutine to a venison barbacoa poutine. “Anybody can put their own spin on it, and that’s the beauty of cooking it,” he said.
Canadian origins Corriveau said there are multiple restaurants that have claimed to have “invented” poutine, but he added that it’s pretty well documented the dish originated sometime in the 1950s and somewhere in the Centre-du-Québec region of Québec, about 100 miles north of the United States border with Vermont and New Hampshire. “The story goes that there was a trucker who had stopped into a restaurant in Warwick, Québec, to eat, and he asked the owner if he could add cheese curds on top of his fries, and the owner gave him a double take,” Corriveau said. “It ended up being a discovery that those two things go well together, kind of like somebody dropping a chocolate bar into a jar of peanut butter.” He said the addition of gravy to the cheese curd-topped french fries actually came from a separate restaurant in Drummondville, a city some 30 miles west of Warwick. Drummondville is also today the host of an annual three-day poutine festival in August. “Someone there had thought it didn’t sound like such a bad idea … because peo-
ple love gravy on their mashed potatoes,” Corriveau said, “and so the tradition of poutine was born.” For a number of years, the dish was looked down upon in Canada as being “garbage food,” according to Tim Beaulieu, event coordinator the New Hampshire PoutineFest, but its popularity slowly grew. In fact, it’s everywhere across the province today, said Lagueux, who lived in Québec until he was about 21 years old. “You’ll find it in fast-food chains like Burger King and McDonald’s as an upgrade for their french fries,” he said. “There are also places where that’s all they do, is poutine. You’ll have a standard poutine [dish] and then you’ll have galvaude, which has green peas and chicken in it to add that extra texture. … Then you’ve got things like the Italian poutine, which has spaghetti sauce on it, or the Big Mac poutine with hamburger and cheese. So they’ve really taken the poutine as a platform and as a vehicle to put different ideas into the mix.”
An homage to heritage Poutine today tends to be popular in specific pockets of the northeastern United States, especially in the Manchester area and also in parts of coastal Maine like Biddeford and Lewiston, where the French-Canadian population grew due to people coming to work at the then-booming textile factories in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In his book Franco-American Life & Culture in Manchester, New Hampshire: Vivre la Différence, Franco-American historian and St. Anselm College French Professor Robert Perreault writes that roughly 17,000 out of 55,000 people living in Manchester by the year 1895 (or about 30 percent of the city’s entire population) had Québécois roots. That number continued to increase over several decades, so much so that not only was a 17
Chez Vachon’s Grand Poutine Challenge If you call yourself a poutine lover and have the stomach to prove it, you can take the Grand Poutine Challenge for a chance to win a coveted spot on the “Conquered” side of the wall at Chez Vachon on Manchester’s West Side. The restaurant, which has been serving a traditional poutine with hand-cut fries, cheese curds and a made-from-scratch peppery chicken gravy for more than 35 years, first introduced the Challenge in 2010 when Robert and Jessica Perkins celebrated their one-year anniversary of taking over ownership of Chez Vachon. Challengers are given five pounds of poutine to finish in one hour or less — including two and half pounds of fries, one pound of cheese curds and six ladles of gravy. “Anybody can do it at anytime, though we do ask that you start before 1 p.m., because
you get an hour and we close at 2,” Jessica Perkins said. “If you finish it, then you don’t have to pay for the poutine, you get a hat and a T-shirt, and your picture on the winning side of the wall. If you don’t, you pay for it and you get your picture on the losing side of the wall.” More than three dozen people have attempted the feat, but only seven people to date have been able to pull it off, according to Perkins. The Grand Poutine Challenge wall of contenders is displayed near the back of the restaurant, with the “Forfeited” side of the wall on the left and the much emptier “Conquered” side of the wall on the right. “A lot of times people don’t realize we have it, so they’ll go, ‘Oh, I want to try that,’” Perkins said, “but we welcome it. We’ve even got [the promotion] on the back of our shirts.”

New Hampshire PoutineFest Poutine has become such a staple in the Granite State that an annual festival launched two years ago in Manchester, in which local restaurants compete on making the best poutine dish as determined by a panel of judges and attendees’ votes, has attracted hundreds of people from New England and beyond. The New Hampshire PoutineFest, held in June every year at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester, was introduced in 2016 by the Franco-American Centre. Since then, event coordinator Tim Beaulieu said the event has exploded in popularity. Tickets to this year’s festival sold out entirely within the first week of being on sale, including all of its VIP tickets within the first 24 hours. “We actually had found some Google Trends data that showed that the Manchester and Boston areas were No. 2 in the United States for Google searches of poutine,” Beaulieu said of the idea to start a poutine festival. “Now we’ve become kind of the goto in New England for it. … There have been are other smaller festivals, but ours is by far the biggest.” Around a dozen or so restaurants, food trucks and other vendors usually participate in PoutineFest, most of which are from New Hampshire while others hail from neigh-
boring states like Massachusetts and Maine, according to Beaulieu. Festival attendees each receive a “passport” upon entry on which they get stamps from each vendor they taste. “We give them a little chip that they vote on by putting it in the bucket of the vendor that is their favorite,” he said. A panel of judges also determines the winner, who receives the title of Best Poutine and a WWE-like Championship Belt. One of the judges is wild game chef Denny Corriveau of WildCheff Enterprises, a Manchester native of Québécois descent. Since the festival’s inception, a “Restaurant Hall of Fame” has been added to the event’s website, listing each participating vendor in years past and each respective winner. The Lowell, Mass.-based Vulgar Display of Poutine food truck took home the title of the inaugural festival, followed by Bar One in Milford in 2017 and the Kettlehead Brewing Co. in Tilton this year. The fourth annual New Hampshire PoutineFest is tentatively scheduled for June 2019, but Beaulieu said he tries to keep the event’s Facebook page active year-round, sharing poutine-related posts and stories during the event’s off months. “People just go crazy for it,” he said.

poutine on a menu, it will remind them of Québéc because maybe they have Mémés and Pépés still living up there, and it reminds them of when they used to make it.” And the more restaurants introducing dishes like poutine on their menus, the more likely others are to try their own versions, Corriveau said. “From the standard restaurant perspective of things, they like to latch on to things they think are great ideas and would appeal to what people want,” he said, “and if they see a lot of attention being paid to this particular ethnic dish, then they may throw it out there themselves to see if people gravitate to it.”

French newspaper founded in 15 the city, but sometimes a neighborhood of the Queen City would become known as a “Petit Canada,” or a “Little Canada,” named for its French-speaking population. Although poutine didn’t come along in Canada until the 1950s, Lagueux said New Hampshire’s — and especially Manchester’s — Franco-American heritage is a contributing factor to its American popularity. “The people coming here from [Québéc], would have children here, and you know, maybe they’d go back to Canada to see their family and things like that … and they still eat poutine,” he said. “Now if they saw

ARTS Aliens on the airwaves
Original play recreates “The War of the Worlds” radio broadcast By Angie Sykeny
On Oct. 30, 1938, Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre players sent millions of Americans into a panic with their “The War of the Worlds” broadcast, a realistic dramatization of an alien invasion and attack on Earth. Merrimack playwright Gary Locke recreates the infamous event on stage with his original play, Invasion from Mars, opening at the Hatbox Theatre in Concord on Friday, Oct. 5. “I’ve always marveled at the story of ‘The War of the Worlds’ broadcast and the effect it had on people,” Locke said. “I find it fascinating that these few people managed to make millions of people believe that Martians had invaded Earth, simply through their acting and a few sound tricks.” The play takes the audience behind the scenes to the CBS studio and control room where Welles voiced and directed the broadcast, and tells three stories of people who were listening to it around the country. The first story goes inside the home of Steve Allen, the first host of The Tonight Show, who was a kid at the time. The second story, which is “steeped in legend,” Locke
said, follows two drunken men in a cabin in New Jersey, where the aliens were said to have landed, and the third is an entirely fictional story about a woman whom Locke modeled after his own mother, who remembered the night of the broadcast. Locke said he got “really obsessed” with the story, and a lot of research went into making the play as true to the real event as possible. The play features 1930s period costuming and authentic 1930s radios and audio equipment. The actors create the sound effects for the broadcast using the same tricks that were used in the real thing. “The sound of the spaceship top coming off and the creature coming out was all

done by unscrewing a jar next to a recording device inside a men’s bathroom,” Locke said, “and we show how all of that was done [in the play].” While holding auditions for another show that he was directing, Locke found his Orson Welles: University of New Hampshire Theater major Lucas LeBlanc. “He’s a dead-ringer for Orson Welles, and he’s the same age that Orson Welles was when he did the broadcast,” Locke said. “When I laid eyes on him, I said, ‘I have to get this guy for my show.’” LeBlanc said he immediately accepted the role and started researching the event, about which he knew very little. “I had heard about it — it’s something almost everyone hears about at some point — but I only knew the basics, so it was massive learning process,” LeBlanc said. “But once I started learning about it and how much of an impact it had on people, I became very interested and excited to be able to recreate the story.” LeBlanc spent a lot of time listening to the original broadcast and watching videos of interviews with Welles to learn Welles’ mannerisms and characteristics. The most challenging aspect of playing Welles, he
said, is recreating his iconic baritone voice. “His voice was one of his most notable features, so I’ve been working really hard to perfect that,” he said. “My natural speaking voice is higher pitched, so I have to do a lengthy routine of warm-ups to get my voice to go that low comfortably.” While the play is, in many ways, a comedy, Locke said, it’s also a reminder of “how careful we must be” with the media. “Millions of people tuned in to the Welles broadcast just a few minutes too late. … By the time the Mercury Players read a disclaimer, the damage was done. Americans trusted the source,” he said. “How many people retweet or repost a story without checking to see if it’s genuine? [The play] tells us as much about ourselves today as it does about people 80 years ago.” Invasion from Mars Where: Hatbox Theatre, 270 Loudon Road, Concord When: Oct. 5 through Oct. 21, with showtimes on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets: $17 for adults and $14 for students Visit: hatboxnh.com

• Art at the winery: LaBelle Winery presents two exhibitions at its art galleries, on view during October: “The Landscape Photography of Jeff Dachowski” at its Amherst location (345 Route 101), and “Unsettled Weather,” seascapes by Mark Johnson, at its Portsmouth location (104 Congress St.). Dachowski works out of Bedford and has been named Photographer of the Year by the New Hampshire Professional Photographers Association seven times. “I have always enjoyed the correlation between music and art,” he said in a press release. “With this show, I aimed to illustrate the music that flows through me when creating imagery.” Johnson currently teaches studio art at New York University. His seascapes engage with the ethereal aspect of seascape painting, focusing on unsettled weather as it moves in and out of the landscape. “The physical landscape and the transient states of the sea and sky provide endless opportunities to explore an ongoing interest in combining opposites … while also underscoring my view of art as both a form of communication and a means for contemplation,” Johnson said in the press release. Johnson will give an artist talk, “Seascape Painting,” in Portsmouth on Friday, Oct. 5, at 6 p.m. That talk is free to attend.

INSIDE/OUTSIDE Return of the pumpkins
New organizers take over the Milford Pumpkin Festival By Angie Sykeny
When the Milford Improvement Team announced that it would not be hosting the Milford Pumpkin Festival this year, a group of community members decided they wouldn’t let the town lose its beloved fall tradition. “We all really enjoy the Pumpkin Festival,” said Zoë Lantaff, entertainment coordinator for the newly formed Granite Town Festivities Committee, a group of volunteers that is organizing the festival this year. “It’s always fun, and a great way to meet people and get out into the community and get businesses recognized, so we really wanted to keep it going.” The 29th annual Milford Pumpkin Festival takes place Friday, Oct. 5, through Sunday, Oct. 7, with activities, entertainment, vendors and, of course, pumpkins, at locations around town. Opening ceremonies will be held on the Oval Stage on Friday evening and will include the presentation of the 2018 Milford Citizen of the Year award by the Milford Historical Society, and the arrival of the “Pumpkin Runner,” a local person whose identity is kept a secret until the event who will kick off the festival with the traditional lighting of the jack-o’-lantern in the Town Hall window. “They jog into the Oval with a torch and hand it off to one of the Milford Fire Department people on a ladder on a fire truck who will light the Milford Pumpkin Festival Where: Various locations around Milford When: Friday, Oct. 5, through Sunday, Oct. 7; most activities will take place from 5 to 9 p.m., on Friday; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., on Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Sunday.

pumpkin,” Lantaff said. “Many people in the town will come out just to see that.” On all three days, there will be food, craft and pumpkin vendors on Middle Street and around the Oval, and live entertainment, including music, magic and dance performances on the Oval and Community House Lawn stages. Milford artist and owner of Wicked Ways tattoo shop Eric Escobar, who created the new logo for this year’s festival, will be doing a live mural painting on Nashua Street. On Friday and Saturday evenings, there will be a beer, wine and spirits tasting on the Community House Lawn, and, for the kids, a family-friendly haunted trail in Emerson Park. “It’s basically this enclosure that goes down this trail, and it’s dark inside and has some spooky Halloween-type scare factors and elements, and people dressed in different costumes to add to the ambience,” Lantaff said. “The kids really enjoy it.” Friday evening will conclude with fireworks. Other special events happening throughout the weekend will include a scavenger hunt at the Historical Society, a giant pumpkin weigh-in and a talent show at the Amato Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, and a Pumpkinfest Color Fun Run at Keyes Memorial Park and a duck race on the Souhegan River on Sunday. On Saturday and Sunday on the Community House Lawn, there will be activities for families, including scarecrow making, pumpkin painting, face painting and more, and the Milford Rotary and Lions Clubs will be selling burgers, sausages, hot dogs, grilled cheese and more. An arts and crafts fair will be held in the Town Hall, and, in the body of water behind the TD Bank parking lot on South Street, a pumpkin catapult will allow people to try to hit a floating scarecrow with a pumpkin. The Granite Town Festivities Committee will also resurrect a Milford Pumpkin Festival tradi-
tion from years past: a carved pumpkin lighting on the bandstand, where people will be able to bring their own pumpkins that they carved at home and have them placed on a giant shelf and lighted with LED tea lights. “[The festival organizers] didn’t do it last year or the year before, and people who have come to the festival for many years used to really look forward to doing the pumpkin lighting,” Lantaff said.

INSIDE/OUTSIDE THE GARDENING GUY
Joys of the season A look at fall mums and asters By Henry Homeyer
Summer is over, officially, and the garden knows it. Tomatoes exist only in the kitchen, many flowers are looking lackluster and trees are losing their leaves. What’s a gardener to do? I buy color in the form of chrysanthemums and fall asters. And I also enjoy wild asters that appear along the roadside and the edge of my woods. Let’s start with asters. My most comprehensive wildflower reference, The Illustrated Books of Wildflowers and Shrubs by William Carey Grimm, lists 29 native species of wild asters. Walking along a country road recently I spotted at least five of them. Some were tall and white or purple, others shorter and pink, purple or mauve. Some had wide rays in their flowers, others had delicate rays close together. And I wouldn’t begin to try to assign names to them. They were all lumped together in my mind as just asters. I like them all. At garden centers there are nice purple asters for sale, short ones, either bright purple or pink. Their tags will say they are perennials, and they are. What the tags do not say is that yours won’t have a hundred blossoms or more next year and hug the ground. They will be taller, probably much taller, and have fewer blossoms. The asters you buy have been cut back repeatedly in the early summer so that the stems will fork, making them bushier, wider and shorter. Each little stem is capable of producing a blossom. If you want to get something next fall that resembles this year’s purchase, you will need to cut back the plants at least twice in early summer. Me? I leave that to the professionals. Of the tall perennial asters, I have some that are 5 to 6 feet tall and produce huge numbers of flowers. These are New England asters, a native species. They produce large amounts of pollen and nectar and are important to our butterflies and bees. Monarch butterflies often feed on mine. In recent times those people who provide us with the botanical names of plants have changed the genus name of asters from Aster to Symphyotrichum . The species name of the common New England aster still remains novae-angliae. Why do they do that? I suppose because they can, and to show that they know a lot more than we do about certain things. Huh. Another aster I love is the bushy or ricebutton aster. Its lower leaves don’t seem to be affected by the fungal disease that so often turn New England aster stems brown. Its leaves and stems are shiny and a very dark green. It is usually the last aster to
Monarch on New England Aster.
bloom for me, only starting in late September or early October. The variety I purchased is known as Wesley Williams. It is 4 to 6 feet tall, with intensely purple-blue flowers about an inch across. Like many tall things, it needs to be staked to prevent flopping, particularly in rich soils where it grows tallest. Each fall I treat myself to some chrysanthemums. The genus name of mums, by the way, has now changed to Dendranthema. I don’t buy them at the grocery store in an effort to get the cheapest price. I go to my local farm stand and buy the biggest, most beautiful pots of mums I can. I like to support local farmers and garden centers — and I believe I get better quality flowers from them. Sometimes I just plunk those mums down, pots and all, on the front steps. Doing so means I will have to water them every hot sunny afternoon, particularly if the mums are growing in peat pots instead of plastic ones. I like peat pots — they don’t use any petroleum products — but they do dry out more quickly than plastic. This is true even if you plant the pots in the ground. The lip of a peat pot will let moisture evaporate and dry out the roots unless the ground is pretty wet. So tear off the lip of the peat pot, or remove it entirely if popping them in the ground. Mums, like the asters, are sold after extensive grooming and pruning throughout the summer. I once estimated that there were 300 blossoms on one 8-inch-wide pot of mums. Left to come back next year, you might get a tenth as many blossoms. What you see when you buy your mums is what you’ll get: they will not grow any more blossoms, but the buds should all open. Other fall perennials currently in bloom for me include various black-eyed Susans, turtlehead, fall anemones and snakeroot. So I shouldn’t be lamenting the lack of color.

INSIDE/OUTSIDE TREASURE HUNT
Dear Donna, Can you tell me what you think about these pieces of iron? We purchased them at an outdoor flea market. Not quite sure what they were for, but we liked them enough to put them in our home. Ken from Derry Dear Ken, Can I say first that you have great taste? I like them too! I think what you have is a couple of snow rakes/birds or some other roof ornaments from a Victorian house. If they are snow rakes they were meant to break up the snow as it melted off the roof so it didnâ€™t fall in one lump. Snow birds were in different forms. They could just be metal forms as yours or I have even had some that actually look like birds. They were very useful then and probably still today if placed on the edge of a roof for breaking up the snow as it melts. They also just could be decorative for the peak along the roof of a Victorian house. Either way I think they are sweet and I like the idea of using them again for decorative purposes. The value on them would be in the

INSIDE/OUTSIDE CAR TALK
To sell the Cadillac CTS or not to sell Dear Car Talk: I enjoy your column very much; it’s good info and funny. Do I need a new car? I have a 2004 Cadillac CTS with rust issues and soon-to-need new tires. It has 105,000 By Ray Magliozzi miles on it. My trusted mechanic says there is nothing wrong with the CTS, and since I really like it, there is no need to buy a new car. My friends mostly have SUV-type vehicles. But I can borrow my husband’s truck, if needed, for hauling. My biggest dislike of the CTS is that it’s rear-wheel drive. This can be a problem in the winters when it snows (I already use snow tires). So ... do I get rid of the CTS before troubles start? Do I get an SUV? Or do you recommend another car? Thanks so much. Keep up the good work! — Mary Mary, I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I think I can tell when somebody wants a new car. I think you’ve fallen out of love with your CTS. You want a new car, and what you want from me is positive reinforcement. So skip over this next paragraph. Purely as a matter of economics, it
HIPPO | OCTOBER 4 - 10, 2018 | PAGE 28
makes sense to keep your old car. Your trusted mechanic, who knows the car, says it’s in good shape. And even after buying new tires and doing some expected and unexpected repairs, your cost to keep the old car would almost certainly be less than a monthly new-car payment. (That’s the practical answer, but that’s not what Mary wants to hear). Mary, this CTS is on the verge of falling apart. You should dump it immediately. These things usually last about 106,000 miles. How many miles do you have? 105? Wow. Good thing you wrote to us today. Is the dealership open right now? Actually, there are legitimate reasons for getting a new car, Mary. Older cars are inherently less reliable than new cars. And if you live where it snows, rear-wheel drive is less than ideal, as you know. All-wheel drive probably would allow you to run allseasons tires year-round and avoid getting stuck. And perhaps most important, there are awesome new safety features available on new cars. You can get automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and rear cross-traffic alert. And don’t forget Bluetooth. And, fortunately for you, there are a ton of all-
wheel-drive vehicles to choose from now. Many more than there were in 2004. You can get an all-wheel-drive sedan, an SUV or, the flavor de jour, a crossover (built like a car but looks like an SUV). You even can get a new, all-wheel-drive CTS if you want. So go shop around, and pick something that makes you happy. As long as it doesn’t create economic hardship for you, you have my full blessing to upgrade. And ask your mechanic if he knows anyone who wants to buy your CTS. Since he can vouch for its condition, I’m sure someone will be very happy to have it. Dear Car Talk: I have a 2006 Volkswagen Touareg with a “sealed for life” transmission. I bought it used with 136,000 miles, and now it has 150,000. As far as I can tell, the transmission has never been serviced. VW keeps saying the transmission is sealed for life, but 150,000 miles with the original fluid makes me nervous. I’m also not sure about opening it for service, as it could end up causing more problems. The transmission isn’t giving me any issues yet. Should I just leave it alone until it dies? What do you suggest? — Peter
You can change the transmission fluid if you want to, Peter, but I wouldn’t. The transmission was not one of the major trouble spots for this car. I can’t remember replacing any Touareg transmissions. Of course, we’ve seen only nine of these in the shop over the past two decades. They didn’t sell a ton of them. And all the guys at the garage run and hide in the bathroom whenever they see one of these driving in. There is a way to change the transmission fluid if you want to, even though it’s “sealed for life.” A mechanic has to have a way to drain and replace the fluid in case a repair is needed. How else would you fix a leak, or refill the transmission after fixing a blown seal? Even if you don’t go to the VW dealer, your mechanic can find the instructions in one of the major service reference guides, like Mitchell or All-Data. So if you’re willing to spend a few hundred bucks, and it would make you sleep better, I’m sure you can have the transmission fluid drained and replaced. But if it were my Touareg, I think I’d save my money for repairs on the fuel system, the exhaust, the electronics and the power window motors. Good luck, Peter. Visit Cartalk.com.

FOOD A bite of the apple Hollis Apple Festival returns News from the local food scene
By Matt Ingersoll
• Spirit of fall: Nashua distillery Djinn Spirits recently announced the unveiling of Codename: Scarecrow, a limited release. According to owner and distiller Andy Harthcock, it is “a spin on the classic apple pie recipe,” featuring apple cider from Lull Farm in Hollis, plus cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, allspice, vanilla bean and Djinn Spirits’ neutral spirit. It’s about 24 percent alcohol and drinkable either as is or mixed in a cocktail. It was released Sept. 29, priced at $20 per bottle, and is expected to be available for a couple of months, Harthcock said.

The revamped eatery includes a new dinner menu with an expanded authentic Texas barbecue section and a reserve premium steak section, plus an expanded beverage menu that brings the number of draft beer taps up to 16.

One of the longest-running events in the Granite State that features apples as its centerpiece, the Hollis Apple Festival will have homemade ciders, crisps, pies, ice cream and more to mark peak applepicking season. The 51st annual festival, organized in part by the Hollis Woman’s Club and the Hollis Town Band, returns to Monument Square on the Hollis Town Common on Sunday, Oct. 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. It’s held on the first Sunday of October each year, according to festival publicity chairwoman Cathy Gast. A variety of desserts using New Hampshire-grown Cortland apples and ice cream from the Doc Davis Ice Cream Stand in Brookline and Pepperell, Mass., will be available. “We’ve got homemade apple crisps that the Woman’s Club does from scratch,

ing and things like that for the first time,” Gast said. Festival visitors can enjoy an afternoon of free performances by the Hollis Town Band, which will play about 19 songs over the two-hour period, including “Flight of the Bumblebee,” “Stars and Stripes Forever” and others. A raffle will be available for a lucky festival attendee to serve as a guest conductor for one of the songs, according to Gast. “We have people from all over the state and even out of state come down and make it an annual tradition,” she said. “The proceeds go toward scholarships and other nonprofits in the area.” Hollis Apple Festival When: Sunday, Oct. 7, 2 to 4 p.m. Where: Hollis Town Common, 7 Monument Square, Hollis Cost: Free admission and parking; foods are priced per item Visit: holliswomansclub.org

and then the band bakes the apple pies,” Gast said. “You can get just plain ice cream, pie, or apple crisp, apple crisp with ice cream, or pie a la mode. … The cost is going to vary depending on what you are getting, but they are all generous portions.” As with previous events, Lull and Brookdale Fruit Farms, both within walking distance of the festival site, will be open for apple-picking during the festival, Gast said. Homemade hot and cold apple cider provided by Lull Farm will also be available for purchase. At least eight to 10 tables of craft and artisan vendors will be on hand selling their work, which may include anything from fine art and photography to beads, jewelry, clay figurines and more.

Celebrating Sweet Years
Flavors of fall
Toscana Fest returns By Matt Ingersoll
A taste of fall will return to Salem’s Tuscan Village during Toscana Fest, where seasonal flavors of foods, wines and beers will be featured, plus games, face-painting, craft vendors and more. The seventh annual family-friendly event, to be held on Sunday, Oct. 7, is free to attend. Tuscan Market manager Jennifer Buford described Toscana Fest as an Italian street festival. She said more than a dozen local food and craft vendors will be set up along the piazza area of Tuscan Village for the duration of the event, which has become one of its largest annual community gatherings. “We’ve had local breweries, wineries and food vendors doing things like meatballs and little sliders,” Buford said. Tuscan Brands will also be showcasing a variety of seasonal offerings available throughout the festival, like a gelato cart with flavors such as pumpkin bourbon, apple cider, gingerbread and hot cocoa with marshmallows. Homemade cider donuts, caramel apples, marshmallow rice squares and caramel corn are Toscana Fest staples as well. Inside Tuscan Market, additional flavors of gelato will be available from the regular counter, plus paninis, cannolis, soups and wine and cheese samples. “We will be grilling our homemade sausages and will be sampling our vast array of cheeses,” Buford said. Several tables of items to be raffled off will be featured, such as wine bottles and glasses, Tuscan Kitchen gift certificates, Halloween-themed gift baskets, sports tickets, chef’s dinner packages and more. Other features of Toscana Fest include jewelry and wellness vendors, bounce

houses, carnival games such as ring tossing, Bingo and bocce, live music, and face- and pumpkin-painting for children. Proceeds from food sales and vendor fees benefit Lazarus House Ministries in Lawrence, Mass. Buford said vendors each pay $40 for a space during the festival, all of which gets donated and is then matched by Tuscan Brands owner Joe Faro, who has had a close relationship with them for the last 20 years. The Lazarus House is a nonprofit that first opened its doors as an emergency homeless shelter in 1983 and today continues to help people in need by providing transitional housing and education and work preparation programs. “Especially with what happened recently down in Lawrence with the gas explosions, the proceeds from [this year’s] festival are going to be helpful,” Buford said.

Ideas from off the shelf
Macaroni and cheese This dish was billed as “literally the best mac and cheese I’ve ever had” by the food blogger who originally posted the recipe. Now, while this wouldn’t take top billing in my book, it certainly is a share-worthy recipe that makes for a simple dinner the entire family will love. Even my picky 4-year-old gave this dish a thumbs-up, which these days is a near miracle around our dinner table. But with its multiple layers of cheese, this recipe is hard not to enjoy. My gut reaction when I read this recipe was that it called for way too much cheese. And then my brain kicked in and realized there’s no such thing as too much cheese, and I knew I had to try it. I stuck as closely as I could to the recipe, only adding garlic powder and more salt and pepper, because I wanted to make sure I was judging the recipe as-is, and not based on my normal deviations. Fortunately, the finished product was pretty delicious, and there certainly was no shortage of cheese. The one change I made to the recipe was my choice of noodle. While the recipe called for traditional elbow noodles, I opted to use a spiral noodle — I love the way cheese and/ Literally The Best Mac and Cheese I’ve Ever Had
Recipe courtesy of the Food Charlatan 2¼ cups dry elbow macaroni ¼ cup (half stick) butter ¼ cup flour ⅓ cup heavy cream ⅔ cup milk 1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon pepper ⅔ cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1⅓ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese One half pound cheese cut into slices (up to two different choices) Crumb topping ¼ cup (half stick) butter, melted ⅔ cup panko bread crumbs

or sauce hugs all of the curves of the spiral without drowning the noodle. I also found the recipe could have used a bit more salt and pepper; additionally, I think a pinch of paprika and/or garlic powder would have gone a long way in adding to the flavor profile of this dish. But if you love cheese on top of cheese on top of more cheese this is definitely the macaroni recipe for you. The panko crust added some much-needed texture to the dish, but regardless, this recipe would be named more accurately if it were called cheese and cheese. If I were to make this recipe again, I’d probably modify it a bit — adding ham or peas, possibly even broccoli, to cut some of the overwhelming richness of this dish. Because it was so cheesy, it was really only feasible to have one small serving, but I’m already thinking about heating up leftovers for lunch later in the week. — Lauren Mifsud Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 pan (or any 2-quart casserole dish) with butter or nonstick spray. In a large pot, boil the macaroni according to package instructions. Drain and return to the pot. Meanwhile in another pot, melt 1/4 cup butter. Once melted, whisk in the flour. Cook for 1 minute whisking constantly, until it is bubbly. Slowly stir in the cream and milk, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. Then, add salt and pepper to taste. Gradually stir in the shredded mozzarella and cheddar. Stir the cheese sauce into the cooked macaroni. The sauce will be very thick. Pour half the mac and cheese into the prepared casserole dish before adding the layer of cheese slices. Pour the remaining mac and cheese on top and spread. Finally, in a small bowl, melt the butter and stir in the bread crumbs. Spread the mixture on top of the mac and cheese. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 350 or until the top is golden brown and the mixture is bubbly.

BEST EXAMPLE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE CUISINE
There is a saying about judging books by their covers, specifically that you shouldn’t. I don’t entirely agree with that line of thinking — what’s the point of having a cover if I can’t judge it just a little bit? But, in terms of how it relates to beer, my point is, don’t be scared off by a beer that sounds, well, particularly “unique.” You might hate it. True. But you might love it. And you’ll definitely never know unless you try. I’m not 100-percent sure that segue worked, but here we are. I would characterize the beauty of the craft beer movement in a number of ways, highlighted by ever-increasing access to truly fresh, abundantly flavorful and locally brewed beer. But the craft beer movement has also inspired brewers to be both bold and inventive. Coffee and hops? Let’s do this. Spicy brews with chipotle or habanero peppers? Yup. How about an IPA combined with green tea? Check. Frankly, things can get much, much weirder than that: beer brewed with a yeast strain cultivated in the brewer’s own beard or how about a beer brewed with pizza? I’m not going to ask you to try anything like that — I appreciate pushing the envelope, but I’d like to have the envelope at least somewhere in sight, even if you need binoculars. The good news is New Hampshire and New England brewers know how to explore flavors without exploring the yeast-growing capabilities of their mustaches. When I first tried a sour beer, the brewer made a point of emphasizing that you should give anything new three good sips before you make a decision. While that strategy didn’t help me with my first sour, it has been a useful and effective philosophy as I’ve explored new brews. Here are five unique brews to help you step just slightly out of your comfort zone (based on my taste buds and/or brewers’ descriptions).

Throne of Gold by Lithermans Limited in Concord This terrific brewery has a number of extremely unique offerings but Throne of Gold jumped out at me. Flavors of orange, passion fruit, nutmeg and dark rum will presumably transport you right to your desired tropical destination.
Erastus by Schilling Beer Co. in Littleton There is nothing Schilling makes that isn’t worth trying. This is an Abbey-style tripel that comes in at 9-percent ABV, which means you might want to sip this sitting down. It’s dry and spicy and you’ll pick up notes of citrus and pear. It’s like a little reminder that there are other beers aside from IPAs.
E09 Coconut Cookie Cluster Porter by Jeff Mucciarone is a senior account execu603 Brewery in Londonderry tive with Montagne Communications, where he You don’t like porters and stouts, you say? provides communications support to the New Interesting. Maybe the combination of toast- Hampshire wine and spirits industry. ed coconut and cacao nibs might change your mind? Porters and stouts are a playground for What’s in My Fridge brewers to experiment with all sorts of rich Lo-pitch Juicy IPA by Hi-Wire Brewing flavors. I feel like you’ll be thanking me after (North Carolina): This was nice — not an you try this. You’re welcome.
Spicy Bohemian Pilsner by Throwback Brewery in North Hampton Maybe you’re scared of a beer that’s spicy. Maybe you should be. I don’t know. Try this brew when you’re snacking on tacos or any Mexican food — the heat from the beer will
over-the-top hop bomb by any stretch, but a nice, crisp, hoppy brew featuring some somewhat subtle sweetness. The brew is hazy, though not New England-style IPA hazy, and not overly juicy. At 4.9-percent ABV, you could have a few of these and still converse with others. Cheers!

events. To let us know
I’m feeling everything about this fourth full-length from the Larkin sisters, who are supposed to be direct ancestors of Edgar Allan Poe. I don’t really believe that but it’s OK; they aim to take over the unconquered space that concentrates on the Lead Belly sound, that is to say raucous horse-barn-marches steeped in 20th-century African American work songs. People really love that stuff, and I’m among them; stomping tunes like the older-than-Lead Belly folk traditional “Black Betty” (which they covered in 2017) are standard fare with these girls, who write most of this stuff themselves. The vibe overall is like KT Tunstall’s “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree,” which should be — and yeah, I checked my privilege — the core sound of the whole #MeToo movement. In this one, they start out by covering Bessie Jones’ “Sometimes,” which Moby sampled for “Honey” on the Play LP. Several original examples of this genre are here, along with Carolina Chocolate Drops-ish stuff like “Bleach Blonde Bottle Blues.” By all rights this should be blowing up big by the time this prints; it’s freakin’ awesome.

If you haven’t heard of this Chicago crooner-punk quartet over the 27 years of its existence, they were offline for a six-year period until 2005, still pushing their vision of “Ramones fronted by a 1960s lounge singer.” They broke up in 1999, when one of these guys got religion (their getting dropped by Capitol Records may have had something to do with it as well, but let’s leave that alone; they were part of the Green Day mall-punk renaissance that had Billboard all aflutter, put it that way). So. They’ve reunited with their ’90s-era drummer Mike Felumlee for this set, which leads off with “Simmer Down,” in which, well, nothing has changed. Singer Josh Caterer still sounds like a knockoff version of Bobby Darin, and there are maybe four chords, tops, thrashing underneath him. There are hooks here, as you’d expect from a skater band that was tormented by whatever label hack was assigned to whip them into shape for the masses; the upshot is, well, yet another Smoking Popes album. And that’s OK. A- — Eric W. Saeger

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases • Back in the 1980s, you were super-cool if you were hip to drummachinists Liverpudlians Echo & the Bunnymen. That means I wasn’t that cool, because, like most people, I thought their songs, like “The Killing Moon” were about as fascinating as watching television test patterns. But that was the thing about these guys; they were like a pod-people version of U2, except a lot more Bauhaus-goth, meaning the deal was about style, not substance. To me, they were pioneers in the genre of hookless, flavor-free post-punk-gruel that led to the catastrophic emperor-with-no-clothes trend the mid-Aughts brought, and I should probably leave it at that, being that we’re supposed to be talking about this band’s new LP The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon, not performing CSI on why pop culture has failed us all. As you absolutely didn’t know, these guys broke up for a while, then re-formed, at which point the critics, feeling safe to point out the obvious after 25 years of self-enforced servitude, wrote off most of Echo’s new stuff as posturing drivel (in a gentlemanly, bet-hedging way, of course). Thus when we last left E&TB, the most notable thing Wikipedia had to say about 2014’s Meteorites was that the band should have actually titled the album “Meteoroids,“ since they were referencing objects in the sky, not burnt-out blobs of random rock that had thudded to earth in ignominy. On Stars, the first single is “The Somnambulist,” a marriage of Simple Minds and, I don’t know, something-something hair-metal. With regard to evidence of the band’s evolution, original singer Ian McCulloch sounds like the guy from the Verge, not Bono (get it?). End transmission. • Oh please, KT Tunstall, please don’t be boring and hopeless again on your new album, Wax, which streets Oct. 5! I know you haven’t done anything awesome since 2004’s Eye to the Telescope, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. So, I will listen to your new single, “The River,” with an open mind, hoping it isn’t total swill, and … oh hamburgers, it’s like Avril Lavigne meets Bonnie Raitt at a bad songwriting competition. This is not good, ladies and gentlemen, not at all. • I haven’t checked in on Motorhead’s Mini-Me, Oakland’s High on Fire, in quite a while, so it’ll be interesting to see what their new album, Electric Messiah, is all about. Does Crowbar still mop the floor with this band? I don’t know, let’s go see. Oh freakin’ gosh darn hamburgers, it’s actually supposed to be a “tribute to Lemmy,” the Motorhead guy, so I’m expecting nothing of note. Yup, here we go, the title track is just Motorhead’s “Hit the Lights” in a devil Halloween costume, more menacing than Lemmy, but only because drummers nowadays have a lot of tricks up their sleeves that make it sound like they’ve got four feet playing bass drums. Recommended if you like Motorhead and nothing else (hey, someone had to do it). • Some of you older hipsters have started families by now, so you can barely remember that awesome 2006 Tokyo Police Club EP, A Lesson in Crime, which fooled us all into believing indie rock was actual music. The new album, TPC, includes the single “Simple Dude,” which isn’t bad, a mixture of Pavement and Foo Fighters. — Eric W. Saeger

Four days of film
New Hampshire Film Festival returns to Portsmouth firstname.lastname@example.org
Thousands of film lovers and filmmakers will gather in Portsmouth for the 18th annual New Hampshire Film Festival, happening Thursday, Oct. 11, through Sunday, Oct. 14. Screenings of around 100 films as well as filmmaker panels, filmmaking workshops, parties and other activities will be held at various locations throughout the city during the four-day event. “It started as a small, grassroots festival. Now, we’re a big, international festival, and the oldest, largest and longest-running [in New Hampshire],” Festival Executive Director Nicole Gregg said. Selected by a screening committee, the film lineup includes short and feature-length films in a variety of genres, including documentary, drama and comedy. “People submit their films, and we watch them all and choose the ones that we think are the most outstanding and will be the most appealing to our audience,” Gregg said. The filmmakers come from all over the world, but there will be a separate New Hampshire series featuring films that are created by local filmmakers or affiliated with the state. Alfred Thomas Catalfo of Dover is one of the filmmakers. He’ll be showing his film Incandescent, a 15-minute science fiction drama about a young teacher and survivor of a school shooting who tries to hold on to her humanity after an alien race begins building a megastructure that will cut off the sun from Earth. “She’s forced to confront her fears and where she’s at in life and whether she wants to survive,” Catalfo said. “I think it confronts us all with the question of, despite how low humanity can sink, what gives us the motivation to keep on living?” Incandescent is Catalfo’s ninth short film to be featured at the New Hampshire Film Festival. Scott Millette of Portsmouth has been attending the festival for 12 years and has volunteered as a presenter, someone who introduces the films, for the last four years, but this year will be his first participating as a filmmaker. He’ll be showing two short films: Man Gets Revenge on Khloe Kardashian, a documentary about his own weight-loss journey, and Teddy #Scarebear, a horror about a killer bear mascot, which he shot during last year’s Portsmouth Halloween parade. “Anytime you get your film on the big screen, it’s exciting, but I’m especially excited to be sharing it with the community here in Portsmouth, where I shot it,” Millette said. One of the most anticipated films, Gregg said, is ESPN Films’ new documentary Crossroads, which tells the story of a group at-risk African-American teenagers who form a
lacrosse team and defy the odds to become state finalists. Special guests involved with the film will be at the screening. New this year, the festival will showcase 360-degree films, for which the audience will wear virtual reality headsets. Those screenings will be very intimate due to the limited number of headsets. “We think that will be a really neat thing for people to experience,” Gregg said. Many film screenings will include Q&A sessions with the filmmakers. People will also have a chance to meet filmmakers at various panels, parties and special events. “That’s what really sets a festival apart from any other movie-going experience,” Gregg said. “It provides a whole other level of interaction between the audience and the filmmakers and really lets the audience engage and ask questions.” Catalfo participates in dozens of film festivals, but the New Hampshire Film Festival, he said, is always a highlight, not only because it is close to home, but because of how it is structured. “It’s really well-organized compared to other festivals, and the organizers truly know and care about film,” he said. “The other thing is the setting; Portsmouth is an almost perfect setting, because all the venues are in walking distance of each other. You don’t find that at many festivals.” Millette said part of the reason he moved to Portsmouth was to be more involved in the New Hampshire Film Festival and to be able to work on his creative projects in a community that is “always supporting the arts.” “Usually, when you tell someone you’re a filmmaker or an actor or a screenwriter, they ask you, ‘But, what do you do for a real job?’” he said. “In Portsmouth, they just say, ‘Cool. What are you working on?’” New Hampshire Film Festival When: Thursday, Oct. 11, through Sunday, Oct. 14 Where: Film screenings and events take place at Portsmouth locations: The Music Hall (28 Chestnut St.), The Music Hall Loft (131 Congress St.), 3S Artspace (319 Vaughan St.), Moffatt-Ladd House (154 Market St.), and Discover Portsmouth Center (10 Middle St.) Tickets: Day passes cost $25 for Thursday and $40 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and include entry to every screening for that day, plus admission to all panels and workshops. Weekend passes, which include entry for all four days, cost $100. VIP passes, which include premium and advanced seating at every screening and priority entrance to all ceremonies and parties, cost $225. More info: nhfilmfestival.com

German science blogger Florian Freistetter presents Isaac Newton as a Guy Like Other Guys You Might Have Met, except for his revolutionary accomplishments, in this short, conversational sketch of the great scientist’s career. It’s no secret that Newton was demanding, driven and self-centered. Freistetter’s title gets it out of the way at the outset and reminds you that maybe you, too, could reinvent the universe, or if not you then Dave in Accounting, or in any event you don’t have to be jealous of Newton because even though he came up with the universal theory of gravity no one liked him. We’re all just ordinary folks here. Freistetter doesn’t dive into why Newton had such a prickly personality — it was 350 years ago and who’s to say? But it’s kind of impossible to dive into Newton’s work without his personality showing up. It’s there in the letters he exchanged with collaborators, asking for the measurements so he can check the math, demanding things be done his way, refusing to release his own secrets and expose himself to their judgment. It couldn’t have helped that he was so often right about many things. And he wasn’t always right. There was the mysticism, the alchemy, the lame argument that the Holy Trinity couldn’t be correct because one rectangle on top of two other rectangles really only makes one force. But he was trying. Newton was always only trying to make sense of the universe every which way he could, hewing to no one’s standards but his own. That included analyzing prisms, the Bible, the path of the Moon, and his own eyesight, which he studied by inserting a needle between his eyeball and eyelid to press on the back of his eye. And, hey, at the time alchemy wasn’t such a crazy idea; you wouldn’t know until you tried. Microscopes and telescopes had only just been invented — Newton himself doing some of the inventing when it came to mirror telescopes — and much of the information we now take for granted about the world was unknown, partly because no one had yet seen it through microscopes and telescopes and partly because Newton hadn’t figured it out yet. Florian gives all due credit and admiration, even calling Newton “the greatest genius ever to have lived.” He seems
to enjoy telling us about Newton and his squabbles, probably the most fun of which to read about is the long-term rivalry with Robert Hooke: “Somebody who said he knew everything, but wouldn’t say what exactly he knew or how he had attained this knowledge, was only likely to irritate somebody like Newton, who had after all stuck needles into his eyes in order to understand how light worked.” As far as I can tell, this book could have two audiences: people with a mild interest in the history of science, and science grad students. As one of the former I plucked it from a bookstore shelf and enjoyed reading it over a weekend. At a few points Freistetter asks whether it’s necessary, helpful or harmful to be an annoying person in order to be a successful scientist, and it seems like his comments are aimed at aspirants to the field. Things have changed since the 1600s. Nowadays it’s not uncommon for a single research study to have 100 authors from several countries; you’ll get nowhere if you can’t collaborate. But people still quibble over who gets the credit, who’s in charge and who owns the data. Freistatter gives a nice example with the Rosetta space probe of 2014, where there were legitimate competing claims to the highly specialized and hard-to-obtain data resulting from a publicly funded project. He also recounts an exchange between Newton and John Flamsteed, the royal astronomer, that went, and I paraphrase, “Give me the data,” “No, it’s not ready,” “You’re taking forever,” “Wait,” “Give me the data, I am the only one who can really understand it, why won’t you give me the data you’re ruining this whole project,” and so on. (Newton is the guy convinced no one else will properly understand the data.) Of all the many and huge advances Newton gave us, the hugest, Freistetter says, was his insight that gravity was a universal force, because that opened up the door for us to think about other things that could be universal, and in physics labs today the search for a Theory of Everything continues. Florian Freistetter is the author of several other science books as well as a blog, and he hosts a podcast, all of which I’d now like to follow up with but none of which are currently available in English. Maybe if this book succeeds, we’ll get more translations. A — Lisa Parsons

POP CULTURE FILM REVIEWS BY AMY DIAZ
Night School (PG-13)
Kevin Hart needs a GED to get his dream job in the comedy Night School.
When Teddy Walker (Hart) sits down to do something academic, such as take the standardized test in high school that leads him to quit school altogether, numbers and letters pop off the page and swim around. Teddy responds with panic and giving up. So while, decades later, he’s an ace salesman, his future job prospects aren’t great without a GED. Thus is Teddy forced to return to high school to take night classes in preparation for the test. The high school’s principal, Stewart (Taran Killam), was once Teddy’s classmate and felt bullied by the popular if academically unsuccessful Teddy. Carrie (Tiffany Haddish), the night school teacher, has a bumpy first meeting with Teddy but encourages his enrollment, over Stewart’s objections. Teddy eventually develops a sort of friendship with her and with his fellow night school students (played by Romany Malco, Anne Winters, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Rob Riggle, Al Madrigal and Fat Joe). But he feels he has to keep this, and his recent career change to a job wearing a chicken costume at a fast food place, a secret from his successful fiancee, Lisa (Megalyn Echikunwoke). Much like Teddy, Night School is a study in unmet potential. The idea is cute enough, the cast is talented, the oddball characters are decent at their oddballness. But the movie feels very half-baked, like a collection of sitcom moments and Hart overreactions that never quite get sewn together as a cohesive story that really pulls you in. Tiffany Haddish is both wasted by this movie and its best element. Every moment she’s in this movie is several significant levels better than every moment she isn’t. Perhaps because her character isn’t written as one goofy note or perhaps because she just naturally finds the layers in things or perhaps both, her exhausted but caring teacher feels like a real person and the comedy in her scenes feels like it comes from somewhere beyond just a writers’ room. Night School deserves a “see me after
class” on its paper; its most interesting ideas (and it has some interesting ideas) are too often left undeveloped in favor of easier but bland gimmicky jokiness. C Rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content throughout, language, some drug references and violence. Directed by Malcolm D. Lee and written by Kevin Hart & Harry Rachford & Joey Wells & Matthew Kellard and Nicholas Stoller and John Hamburg, Night School is an hour and 51 minutes long and distributed by Universal Studios.
A yeti captures a mythical creature with tiny feet in the animated movie Smallfoot.
Migo (voice of Channing Tatum) is a yeti, a Himalayan bigfoot, living in a village of bigfoots (bigfeet?). This yeti society believes its mountain-nestled village is an island surrounded by a misty nothingness, not a mountain top above a wider world. The unquestionable Truth, as has been chiseled on stones, is explained by village leader Stonekeeper (voice of Common). The stones sayth there is no such thing as a “Smallfoot,” the legendary tiny creature whose existence has been suggested by strange artifacts (a parka, toilet paper). When Migo actually sees a smallfoot — a pilot whose plane crashes on the mountain but then is blown away by his
parachute — he rushes to tell the village that smallfoot is real. Stonekeeper insists it is not and, when Migo won’t disavow the smallfoot sighting, he is ostracized. But Migo learns he is not alone in questioning conventional stone wisdom. The “village weirdos” also believe in the smallfoot, including Gwangi (voice of LeBron James), Kolka (voice of Gina Rodriguez), Fleem (Ely Henry) and Meechee (voice of Zendaya), Stonekeeper’s Migo-bedazzling daughter. They convince him to join their search beneath the clouds for the smallfoot. As it happens, beneath the clouds, human Percy (voice of James Corden), a nature TV show host with sliding ratings, is searching for a bigfoot. Or rather, since he doesn’t think they exist, he is searching for camera angles at which he can shoot his assistant Brenda (voice of Yara Shahidi) in a bigfoot suit and fake a sighting. Migo meets Percy and, after convincing Percy that Migo is a real yeti and is not going to eat Percy, Migo scoops him up in a Baby Bjorn made out of a sleeping bag to carry him back to the village. Though scared, the fame-seeking Percy shoots footage that he hopes will make his career while Migo hopes the living breathing Percy will change villagers’ minds about the validity of the stones. Of course, Stonekeeper isn’t going to let a little thing like evidence get in the way of years of tradition.
Though I, the adult, kept seeing the movie as offering commentary on the dangers of crying “fake news” (which turns into a take on liberty versus security), I think kids may focus more on the messages that “different isn’t bad” (as demonstrated by the questioning yetis and by yeti/human interactions) and “judge for yourself” (again, mostly in terms of prejudice about others but maybe also about accepted “truths” challenged by facts). It is hard to turn off the subtext-seeking part of one’s brain. But generally, I think the messages that get through the pratfalls are standard kid-positive fare, even if Stonekeeper’s insistence that Migo deny what he saw feels harsh in early scenes. Also falling in the “acceptable to slightly above average” category are the movie’s songs (which I think were mostly originals with one that riffed on “Under Pressure”). I didn’t sense here the immediate catchiness of, say, the Trolls blend of original songs and covers, but I felt like my six-year-old would probably generally like the “everything is awesome”-ish and “ready for adventure” scene-setting songs. The vocal work is also just fine. Corden is well-suited to this part, making Percy believable in both his show-bizy and his more honest moments. Channing Tatum is the movie’s stand-out, performance-wise. Put him in the bucket with John Cena and Dwayne Johnson of big lugs whose voices can convey the mix of warmth, kindness and goofiness that really works in kid-friendly movies. Overall, Smallfoot doesn’t feel quite as standout as it could have been with this cast and this premise but nor does it appear like the kind of thing that would bore or scare the, probably, six-year-old and up audience it’s intended for or overly annoy the parents bringing them. BRated PG for some action, rude humor and thematic elements. Directed by Karey Kirkpatrick and Jason Reisig with a screenplay by Karey Kirkpatrick and Clare Sera (from a book called Yeti Tracks by Sergio Pablos), Smallfoot is an hour and 36 minutes and distributed by Warner Bros.

MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL You don’t get to go to Cannes but you can still be part of a film festival jury with the Manhattan Short Film Festival, which will screen locally at NHTI (31 College Drive in Concord, Sweeny Auditorium) Friday, Oct. 5, through Sunday, Oct. 7. Screenings are at 7 p.m. on Friday and 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission costs $10. The festival will screen nine short films and viewers all over the world will vote for their picks for best short film and best actor. Past festival entries have been nominated at the Oscars in short film categories, according to the festival website. As in previous years, the candidates hail from several countries and feature stories told in a variety of styles, from the animated Fire in Cardboard City (a fun use of stop-motion-style animation with a kicker of live action from New Zealand) to the darkly comedic Home Shopper (from the U.S. and featuring Dev Patel as director and Armie Hammer in an onscreen role) to the bleak war story Someone (from Germany). Other films include Baghead (from the U.K.), Her (from Kosovo), Two Strangers Who Meet Five Times (from the U.K.), Chuchotage (from Hungary), Fauve (Five) (from Canada) and Lacrimosa (from Austria). See a trailer for the festival and interviews with many of the films’ creators at manhattanshort.com, where you can also find information about the winners on Monday, Oct. 8.

NITE Alice’s Restaurant Redux Arlo Guthrie marks movie’s 50th with tour
Local music news & events

• Doubled: Already established as a leader on his instrument, Ian Ethan Case extends the twin-necked guitar into the live project Portals, based on his Photon Symphony. The effort was inspired by the many times Case played at the Boston Museum of Science Planetarium and uses virtual reality via an intricate system of synchronized projections to create the appearance of a larger band. Friday, Oct. 5, 8 p.m., Riverwalk Cafe, 36 Railroad Square, Nashua. Tickets $10 at riverwalknashua.com. • Comrades: A group of friends who’ve jammed together for years, Calamity Jane plays its first ever show. Including Mary Fagan, former Congressman Paul Hodes and Jon Bresler, the five-piece band promises roots music, blues and “100 Proof Rock and Roll” with both covers and originals. Saturday, Oct. 6, 8 p.m., Area 23, 254 N. State St. (Smokestack Center), Concord. See bit.ly/2Qo8Eag. • Meaningful: The title track of Modern Happiness, new from Eric Hutchinson, explores the use of antidepressants. “This album is the first music I’ve written since I started taking Prozac and the lyrics are very much about my eternal search for purpose, contentment and meaning,” the versatile singer songwriter said. He appears with his band Sunday, Oct. 7, 8 p.m., Tupelo Music Hall, 10 A St., Derry. Tickets are $35 at tupelohall.com. • Accomplished: If the New England Music Awards are an indication, Ruby Rose Fox is a force to be dealt with. The Boston performer swept the top prizes for the second year in a row. Her latest album, Salt, is smart and pointed. Saturday, Oct. 6, 8 p.m., Music Hall Loft, 131 Congress St., Portsmouth. Tickets $15 at themusichall.org. Want more ideas for a fun night out? Check out Hippo Scout, available via the Apple App Store, Google Play and online at hipposcout.com.
There’s a moral hidden in the film version of Alice’s Restaurant that’s not on the record; in fact, it’s not even on the screen. However, the message could go a long way toward healing today’s fractious world. The song, if an 18-minute monologue bookended by a chorus can be called that, is familiar to most of the ’60s generation. On Thanksgiving Day, a young Arlo Guthrie illegally threw half a ton of garbage over a cliff for his friend Alice, because he wanted to do her a favor, and the Stockbridge, Mass., dump was closed. Guthrie was arrested by the curmudgeonly “Officer Obie.” His offense kept him out of the Vietnam War but forever on the FBI watch list. The basic story is true, and director Arthur Penn decided to use a few real people in his movie — including Guthrie, Obie and the judge in his case. That’s when the teaching moment arrived, Guthrie explained in a 2015 concert. After two weeks of early morning shoots, the cop looked at him and said, “Guthrie, if you hippies can get up at 5 in the morning, go through this wardrobe and makeup crap, work all day into the night, you can’t be all that bad.” In that moment, a bond formed between the two, one that lasted until Police Chief William Obanhein died in 1994. “If you ever see this movie, what you’re actually seeing is a couple of people whose lives are a lot like the country,” he said. “They may not have anything in common at all, but they get stuck working together for just a couple of weeks and become lifelong friends. The world needs a little more of that, and it’s not too hard to do.” The Oscar-nominated film’s 50th anniversary is being marked with a tour that hits Manchester’s Palace Theatre on Oct. 12. It’s a family affair; the onstage band includes
Arlo’s son Abe, and daughter Sarah Lee Guthrie, a successful singer-songwriter both on her own and with husband Johnny Irion, who will open the show. Guthrie’s youngest child, Sarah Lee, first watched Alice’s Restaurant at age 14, when she found a stashed VHS copy. “All I can remember is laughing at how funny looking my dad was,” she said recently by telephone. “He’s this awkward, skinny kid in his underwear, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe that’s my dad.’ When they discussed the film, she learned about a few artistic liberties taken by Penn. Dad didn’t ever have a stutter, for example, or an Asian girlfriend. “It was part of the character created for the movie,” she said. “I found that fascinating, but I think that he was really taken aback. Here’s his kid having a totally different idea about him, because of this film. … He spent years straightening me out.” The Palace show will start with her solo material. “I love to sing the old songs too, so I’ll mix it up a little bit,” she said. “I’m working on an album [that] will shine through hopefully. I’m actually hoping that Dad’s gonna join me; we’ve talked about that.” Guthrie’s headlining set will include a multimedia show — stills and video from the movie, of course, and a touching tribute to his wife of 43 years, Jackie, who passed away from cancer in 2012. He’ll also delve into the catalog of legendary father Woody, and play his own hits, like “Coming into Los Angeles” and “City of New Orleans.” Arlo Guthrie joked about an “Alice’s Restaurant entire massacree movement” in the original version; it turns out that he really did create something close to that. The Guthrie Center in Great Barrington, Mass., is a community cultural hub located in the restored church where the actual Alice lived. A few years ago, Sarah Lee Guthrie

launched a program there with a group of activists and musicians called The Hoping Machine, focused on social change and justice. The effort got her more involved in working to secure the Center’s legacy. “How to keep it relevant for future generations,” she said. “We’ve been taking a good hard look at that and creating some changes there that will really enforce that.” Activism also found its way into her music. A few years ago, she and husband Irion recorded “World Gone Wrong,” a pointed anthem about social and systemic injustice. “I got away with thinking, we’re just doing this for fun and entertainment, but there’s a great purpose that I was missing,” Sarah Lee Guthrie said. “I finally feel like I’ve come back around to what that is and how to portray it and how to inspire that. I think my dad’s generation already do that and know that, and maybe came away from that because it wasn’t important. Now ... it’s important again.” Arlo Guthrie When: Friday, Oct. 12, 7:30 p.m. Where: Palace Theatre, 80 Hanover St., Manchester More: $44.50 - $74.50 at palacetheatre.org

• While shopping at a Peoria, Illinois, Walmart on Sept. 20, an unnamed 30-year-old woman filled her cart but also added a few items to her backpack: leggings, pencils, a quart of oil and a “Jesus Calling” Bible. After she paid for only the items in her cart, a loss prevention officer stopped her before she left the store. Peoria police were summoned, reported the Peoria Journal Star, and the woman explained to them she was hoping the Bible could help her spiritually: “(She) told me that it sounds strange, but she was trying to be more Christian,” an officer reported. She was charged with misdemeanor theft. • After trying repeatedly on Sept. 12 to pull over a Toyota Prius driving with expired tags on I-5 near Marysville, Washington, a Washington State Patrol officer finally caught up to the car at an intersection and verbally instructed the unnamed 42-year-old woman driver to pull over, reported the Everett Daily Herald. “I will not. I drive a Prius,” was the woman’s reply. The officer then asked her to step out of the vehicle, which she also refused to do, so he forced her out. “I will own your bank account,” she told him. “I will own your house.” When he asked her name, she responded, “None of your business.” Finally, she was arrested for failing to obey instructions, failing to identify herself and obstruction.
Tammie Hedges of Goldsboro, North Carolina, founded the nonprofit Crazy’s Claws N Paws in 2013 to help low-income families with vet bills and pet supplies, so it was natural for her to take in 27 animals displaced by Hurricane Florence in September. Hedges treated many of the animals, found in the streets or surrendered by fleeing residents, with antibiotics and painkillers for fleas, cuts and other ailments. For that, The Washington Post reported, she was arrested on Sept. 21 for practicing veterinary medicine without a license, after an official from Wayne County Animal Services visited the warehouse where the animals were housed. Kathie Davidson, a volunteer with Claws N Paws, said: “If she hadn’t done what she did, then they’ll be charging her with animal neglect and cruelty. What was she supposed to do?” Hedges was released on bond, and the charges were later dropped.
Bait and switch
Ironman triathlete Jaroslav Bobrowski, 30, of Landshut, Bavaria, was banned Sept. 14 from Running Sushi, an all-you-can-eat restaurant, for eating too much sushi. The Local Germany reported Bobrowski, a former bodybuilder, ate close to 100 plates of sushi, which sent the restaurant into a panic and caused the owner and chef to tell him he was banished “because I’m eating too much.” “He eats for five people,” the owner complained. “That is not normal.”
What was your first clue?
Romance novelist Nancy Crampton Brophy, 68, was arrested on Sept. 5 on charges of murdering her husband, Daniel Brophy, 63, in Portland, Oregon, after apparently following her own advice, written in a 2011 essay titled “How to Murder Your Husband.” In the essay, Crampton Brophy suggests that hiring a hit man is “never a good idea” and poison is traceable. Instead, reported The Oregonian, she allegedly shot her husband on June 2 at the Oregon Culinary Institute where Daniel was a beloved chef. Police did not release a motive, and a neighbor said Crampton Brophy “never showed any signs of being upset or sad.” On Sept. 17, she pleaded not guilty in Multnomah County Circuit Court, and her trial is set for Oct. 26.
People different from us
The Martin County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office has received repeated calls about a man in a Stuart neighborhood who conducts chores around the outside of his house in the nude. “I came out Sunday night to put the trash out, and I look over and he is bent over, winding up his hose, and I’m like that is my view of the neighborhood,” huffed Melissa Ny to WPBF TV on Sept. 19. Other neighbors are taking a more measured approach. “Literally they are the nicest people you’ll ever meet; they would give you their clothes if they had them on to give them to you,” neighbor Aimee Canterbury told WPTV. The sheriff’s department says there is nothing they can do as long as the man is on his own property and not touching himself inappropriately. The nudist declined to be interviewed, saying he and his family are private people.
It’s been a banner year for the spider population of Aitoliko, Greece, according to the Associated Press. Fueled by a huge increase in the numbers of lake flies, which the spiders eat, the spiders reproduced unusually fast and have covered coastal trees, bushes and low vegetation with blankets of thick, sticky webs. The webs run along a few hundred meters of the shoreline in the western Greek town and, according to residents, have the unexpected advantage of keeping mosquitoes away. Visit newsoftheweird.com.
