What club am I in?

We do it all the time. Consider how often in a conversation we say to the other, “You know what I mean.” Doing so, we assume that our listener is operating within the same frame of reference as ourselves. With that assumption made, we can further assume shared background knowledge, similar experience and likely shared views. Alternatively, on meeting a person for the first time, we would probably not make that first assumption and wait, instead, until we knew more about them. Then and only then, would we decide if they are a member of our “club.” Our “club” can be any number of things: our gender, age, sexual orientation, the family to which we belong, religious group, profession, political party, interest group, ethnic or racial group or our socio-economic status. Yes, it is risky to call any of these a “club,” but there are certain characteristics they share with clubs, the most fundamental being that one is either in or out. We live our lives and interact with others every day, sometimes mindful, other times not, of the “clubs” to which we belong, but these social structures have great influence. Daniel K. Finn, professor of economics and ethics, has noted, “A social structure is a system of relations among pre-existing social positions into which persons enter. A social structure has causal impact on the people within it by presenting them with restrictions and opportunities that frequently alter the decisions they would otherwise make. Structure affects moral agency.” In other words, the “club” to which we belong will influence our behavior. Our political persuasion, for example, will likely dictate the people we discuss politics with, what media outlets we go to, what causes we champion, or how we view and discuss with others the happenings of the day. The Supreme Court nominee confirmation hearing is a case in point. Consider the many “clubs” that have been on display as the events of the last few days have unfolded. Frames of reference, including past experiences, antipathy toward those in other “clubs,” even the habits and lifestyles of those in other markedly different socio-economic circumstances, are on view. Sadly, what is rarely on view, however, though it is occasionally referenced as a formality, is the reality that the common good that is the “club” of all of us Americans is being badly bruised in the process. Our “clubs” are fighting it out and we are paying scant regard to the condition in which our country will be left when the fight is over.

NEWS & NOTES Nonprofit changes

After agreeing to affiliate with Catholic Charities of New Hampshire, the CareGivers reopened and resumed services last Monday, according to a newsletter announcement from the nonprofit. The organization helps elderly and disabled individuals living in the greater Manchester and Nashua areas to remain in their homes for as long as possible. About a month ago the nonprofit closed its offices following the sudden death of former president and CEO Donny Guillemette. As part of this affiliation deal, the CareGivers will be restructured, and Catholic Charities of New Hampshire will now have oversight of the nonprofit’s operations and mission. The organizations are working on a definitive agreement, which will be completed by Dec. 1 and implemented by the beginning of next year. James Wilkie, the new president and CEO of the CareGivers, wrote in a statement that the move provides the nonprofit with “the immediate ability to continue supporting the work of our 600 dedicated volunteers on behalf of our 400 clients.”

In a statement, she said “It’s critical that we have a justice system with the funding and resources necessary to handle cases in a timely, efficient and comprehensive manner. … These grants will help provide local law enforcement and prosecutors with the tools they need to ensure cases are appropriately investigated and prosecuted.”

Uber settlement

Attorney General Gordon MacDonald announced that New Hampshire joined the other 49 states and Washington, D.C., in a $148 million settlement agreement with Uber Technologies. In November 2016, the California-based ridesharing company learned that hackers gained access to personal information for 600,000 drivers nationwide, including 763 drivers in New Hampshire. Uber waited to report these issues to drivers until November 2017, violating state law that requires companies to notify individuals affected by data breaches “within a timely manner.” The Granite State will receive $672,822.71 through the settlement. Kate Spiner, director of communications for the Attorney General’s Office, said, “The money goes into the Consumer Protection Escrow Account by state law. This account, in part, funds the work of consumer protection done by the Consumer Protection and Antitrust Bureau.”

Steve Geddes of Boscawen set a new record for the biggest pumpkin recorded in the U.S. at this year’s Deerfield Fair, according to a news release. The giant gourd clocked in at 2,528 pounds, beating the previous record of 2,360 lbs.

In the weeks leading up to the general election, the Hippo is speaking with the major party nominees for the state’s gubernatorial and congressional races about the issues — and, to get the conversation going, about their thoughts on the best flavor of ice cream. The interviews here have been edited and condensed.

U.S. House of Representatives, District 2

Center Harbor in Belknap County; Cheshire County; Coos County; Grafton County (expect for Campton); Hillsborough County (except for Bedford, Goffstown, Manchester and Merrimack); Merrimack County (except for Hooksett); Atkinson, Deerfield, Northwood, Salem and Windham in Rockingham County; and Sullivan County.

Rep. Annie Kuster (D) Ann McLane Kuster has represented District 2 since she was elected to the House of Representatives in 2012. Kuster is a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee and the House Agriculture Committee. She previously worked as an adoption attorney for 25 years. What is the best flavor of ice cream? Without a doubt, maple walnut. It reminds me of New Hampshire, and all things good about New Hampshire. And it tastes delicious. What do you view as the most important piece of legislation you were involved with during your current term? I would say during my current term, there are a few. … The [VA MISSION Act of 2018] is about reauthorizing the [Veterans] Choice Program to

allow veterans access to health care in the community if they cannot get timely access to care within the VA medical system. I was one of two Democrats that were primary cosponsors. It was a bipartisan bill, and it’s a very comprehensive bill. It creates a new choice program, [and] veterans will no longer have to work through a third-party administrator called Health Net. And it will create a network of community providers for the convenience of veterans and create walkin urgent care options in the community, so that veterans don’t need to go to the VA for simple procedures. … It also has a provision to extend support for caregivers to pre-9/11 veterans, and more robust caregiver support for our post-9/11 veterans. … I’m involved with the five-year Farm Bill. ... I expect it will be completed in November or December, and that will go to the president for his signature. [The bill covers] all the farm programs [and] dairy farmers here in New Hampshire, conservation programs, nutrition programming, the [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program], school lunch programs, timber and forestry programs and rural economic development. It’s a very comprehensive bill.

How have you worked to achieve your goal ... I like to say I represent New Hampshire’s farmers and eaters. … [The bill] is about jobs of improving access to affordable, quality and economic development, and it’s critically health care in New Hampshire?

They’ve lost faith in their elected officials, as they see elected officials promoting themselves instead of the interests of their constituents, and they believe that Congress is broken. So when we talk about restoring American confidence, that’s what we’re talking about. We’re talking about people understanding that folks are fighting for them; they have folks in Congress doing things that are beneficial for their constituents, who put them in that seat. Along with the opioid crisis, what do you feel are New Hampshire’s most important public health issues, and how would you work to address them from your position in Washington? The opioid issue is at the forefront. The president came and spoke at Manchester Community College and talked about bringing federal money into the states based on their ranking order and pursuing more severe penalties for people that are convicted of drug trafficking. But I think the other thing that’s the most important public health issue is the cost of affordable health care in this state. The [Affordable Care Act], for the most part, in my opinion, was a train wreck. We need to provide more providers in the state that work in a free market environment. I think that’s important. Right now we limit the folks who can

enter the state and provide coverage. When you look at every other type of insurance that we buy, we have many, many options and we can go cross-state, whether it’s auto or home insurance. We need to look at being able to do those kinds of things in health care. … This 80/20 rule of health care spending — which was codified in the ACA — we need to look at that and figure out a way to break it up. Because that 80/20 rule disincentivizes insurers from doing the things that we believe are important. I think that if we can address this 80/20 rule, then I think we can get to the whole issue of being able to reduce costs. … We’re going to look at doing something about that, and in conjunction with that, we’re going to reinvigorate this thing that actually came out in 2004 called health savings accounts. I think that’s a great tool that individuals as consumers can use, and I think we need to do that. I think we need to look at what a health savings account provides. It provides a tool and a mechanism by which an employer … can fully fund the HSA, and [employees] can use it for whatever they feel is required. It stays in their account, it’s their money, it gains interest year over year, and I think there’s an incentive to stay healthy so they don’t use that money. It allows consumers to be able to pick and choose where 7 they want to go.

Negron 6

What legislation would you propose or support in Washington to help fund veterans’ care in New Hampshire? This is near and dear to my heart. I’m a retired Air Force officer, my wife’s a retired Air Force officer, my father’s retired and our son is currently on active duty with the Air Force. Our family has over 109 years of military service. We understand the issues. We understand that it’s a debt owed. Today’s environment, with an all-volunteer force, there’s an expectation that we’re going to ask them — every soldier, sailor, airman, Marine and Coastie — to go into harm’s way. And there’s an understanding that when they do come home, they come home broken. We need to take care of them. Right now the president signed what’s called the [VA MISSION Act of 2018]. … It allows any veteran to go to any health care facility and get whatever treatment they need. The problem that we’ve had in the past is that we had the [Veterans] Choice Program, and the MISSION Act makes that program more permanent. In the Choice Program, the payment was sent to the [Department of Veterans Affairs], and then in turn the VA paid the provider. The problem became is that the VA was very long in the tooth in making sure providers were getting paid … so [providers] were dropping out of being in the Choice Program. I think we have to look at being able to provide that money directly to

or Canada, making sure that the border patrol and the [Drug Enforcement Administration] have the tools they need to detect and stop the flow of synthetic opioids at the border. … We have to focus on education, prevention, increasing access to treatment and long-term recovery. What economic priorities do you feel would continue to support job growth, and on the flip side, what should be done to address New Hampshire’s struggles with maintaining a consistent pool of qualified workers? When I first went to Congress six years ago, we were holding job fairs and we were focused on making sure people had access to good jobs. Now that’s flipped, and as I go out and visit companies across the state and talk with employers, the focus is on workforce development, job training, apprenticeships, internships and educational pathways for successful careers throughout one’s life. I think we can all agree that we’ve shifted in the workplace from having one job for a 30- to 40-year career to a generation that will have multiple jobs, and that need their education to be focused on their ability to gain skills to solve problems, to have innovative solutions and work well with other people in the workplace. We have become very focused on the career and technical high school education [opportunities] around New Hampshire to help support those programs. We’ve focused on community colleges, getting funding for Nashua Community College … and supporting the Community College System with programming that will meet the needs of the recipient or the veteran and then have veterans have the responsibility of paying their provider. I think that’s something we need to look at. I think it will reduce the overhead and the oversight that the VA has. Again, just like in the civilian world, put the responsibility back on the individual to take care of their payment plans. How would you work to achieve your goal of working toward a balanced federal budget? What other economic measures would you support to continue job growth and address New Hampshire’s worker shortage? A lot of people don’t talk about the worker shortage, because we’ll see a statistic that says New Hampshire’s unemployment rate is one of the country’s lowest. … I’ve talked to many small businesses out there. They’re hurting for qualified workers, and it’s not being reflected in those numbers. ... I think from an immigration perspective, one of the off-ramps is the visa program. There’s 185 ways to come into this country, and are we really doing the right thing to help our business owners? I think the worker shortage is a function of that, and I think the visa program needs to be looked at and revamped to help the smaller business guys be able to maintain a qualified work force. … On the larger perspective about a balanced federal budget, I believe that the debt we have right now, it is or soon will be the single biggest

New Hampshire employers. … [We’re] also working on making our four-year colleges more affordable and accessible, and managing the debt people graduate with. … All of those things will help grow the economy. What areas of New Hampshire’s education system would be most important for you to focus on in your next term? First of all, to make sure that to the extent the federal government in involved in K-12, that we maintain robust funding for programming for our schools. I think it’s the most important investment that a community and a family can make; it’s literally investing in your future. And as I mentioned, I think we need to adapt education to these lifelong learning skills that will be necessary in the 21st-century economy, for people’s quality of life, their ability to work together in groups and their ability to plan an execute their own goals and aspirations. And then beyond that, again, supporting these career and technical high school programs, whether it be health care or manufacturing. That is the future of our economy here in New Hampshire. For some people the pathway is not a four-year degree with a lot of debt. For many people, if they can get their education and work with apprenticeships, internships or part-time work in the community, they can develop those relationships and learn from mentors. I’ve been very impressed with the CTE programs in New Hampshire. And I mentioned our focus on the community colleges here in New Hampshire. 8 security issue against this country that we’re going to face. I believe in this approach called “zero-based budgeting,” which requires entities to justify their budget submission and not just assume they can go off of what they got last year. … They’ve got to be able to justify [budgets] from the bottom up, and not just assume they’re going to get what they got in the previous year. ... I just think we need to take a hard look and make people accountable so we can work within the budgets that we have. We do it every day here as people in New Hampshire. Your approach to the immigration debate is a focus on border security. What priorities would you pursue to secure New Hampshire’s borders, as well as enforce national border security? Just as a side note, I am the grandson of a Mexican immigrant. My grandfather came here from a state in Mexico called Michoacán in 1921. … We’re a land of laws, and there’s a right way to do it. We’re not doing it, and we need to get back to it. Everyone wants to focus on the southern border, at which there is, for lack of a better term, a “hot zone.” But for me, it’s more than just immigration when I talk about border security.

Kuster 6 What do you feel have been the most effective measures you’ve supported to combat the opioid crisis in New Hampshire, and what other initiatives would you look to pursue if re-elected? Number one, I have been the founder and currently serve as co-chair of the bipartisan opioid task force. We have 105 members of Congress working together, half Republican and half Democrat. We have been successful so far in passing two comprehensive bills, but we have more work to do. In 2016, the comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act was the first step, and then in 2018, we have just sent to the president for his signature a comprehensive set of bills that I helped to shepherd through the Congress. … We worked very hard to make sure that New Hampshire got our share of the funding, and we expect $26 million per year over the next two years to come into New Hampshire. In terms of the specifics, I always say that New Hampshire has been among the hardest-hit states, but we also have the bold ideas and innovative programs to help the country respond and turn back this opioid epidemic. [That includes things like] a $2.7 million grant to Dartmouth to treat pregnant mothers and newborn babies with neonatal abstinence syndrome, so that the babies aren’t born addicted to opioids and heroin. The program is called Moms in Recovery. There’s a number of other parts of the bill, like the Stop Fentanyl Deaths Act. … Basically attacking the opioids coming cross the border, both synthetic opioids from China and, whether it’s Mexico

Immigration has remained a divisive issue in Washington and beyond. What are the most important bipartisan solutions Congress should support? I think what’s important to say is that it does not need to be divisive. I want to take you back five and a half years to the spring of 2013, when the Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform that was supported by Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. It was a very comprehensive bill with strong bipartisan support. I would have voted for that bill in the House the very next day or any day since. But the truth of the matter is we did not have hearings on immigration in the House, nor were we allowed to bring forward that bipartisan comprehensive legislation, despite our best efforts, with either the John Boehner or the Paul Ryan leadership in the House. But essentially what that [legislation] would entail, and what I support, is a pathway to citizenship, border security and something called E-Verify, which I would make mandatory for all employers. Frequently we focus on the employee and we don’t talk about the employer. The reason we have so many illegal immigrants in this country is because they’re being employed by companies that need their labor. [The bill] also included a new reform of the immigration system

by merging family-based and the work-based immigration into a single pool. And lastly, renewable work visas for low-skilled workers. This is something I hear about all the time. Just last week [I met] with a dairy farmer, [and we were] talking about how difficult it is to find labor for milking cows at 4 in the morning. I hear about this all the time in the tourism [industry], whether it’s ski areas or summer amusement [areas]. ... I hear it from farmers, in picking fruit or vegetables, and I hear it from high-tech and academia. We are going to have a serious shortage of workers if we don’t address immigration reform in a comprehensive way.

What’s something nobody is talking about right now that you think will become a critical issue in the next few years? I have been the founder of a bipartisan task force to end sexual violence … to address sexual assault and harassment in education, in the workplace, in Congress and in the military. I was involved in “Me Too Congress” and passing legislation to address sexual harassment in our workplace. I have visited with rape and domestic violence centers, college campuses and community groups all across New Hampshire, and with many of the national groups in Washington on this issue. This is something I feel very strongly about, and I will continue to speak out about protecting women, girls, men and boys in New Hampshire from sexual violence.

Kuster 7 There’s a lot of opportunity there. It’s much more affordable for some people.


Negron 7 to include the Canadian border. … I believe that we have to take a holistic view at it. I’m in favor of the wall, but not just a wall. There could be things like drones that are out there, we could increase our border control presence so it’s a holistic approach. I think one of the things that people don’t talk about is that we have agencies that don’t do a very good job of cross-flowing information, whether it’s state-to-state or federal-to-state. I think we need to have a forcing mechanism by which a drug enforcement entity within a state or the federal [Drug Enforcement Agency] needs to share information so that we can have a better picture of what’s going on out there. For whatever reason, people think that they have information they choose not to share. We need to be able to make sure that we share every piece of information that we have.

How will you support education in New Hampshire from your post in Washington? As a person who believes in a smaller government, I would actually push back on any overreach from the Department of Education into the states, and let us and the governor and the legislature here in the state do what we feel is right for our kids. … I believe education is a state’s issue. If there’s an opportunity for federal funding for the states for them to utilize in a manner that’s beneficial to the state, I will be in favor of that. But I would not be in favor of having the federal government tell the states, specifically my state, what to do when it comes

to education of our children. … I’ve had kids in public schools, private schools and parochial schools, so we’ve been very fortunate to see the gamut of all that. I think it’s a parent’s right to put their child where they feel best suited for an education. There’s an opportunity for us to either look at charter schools or maybe look at beefing up some of the public schools that are out there or offsetting some costs that we could provide for the schools. I think that’s where federal funding needs to be, if it’s available. And if there is federal funding, it shouldn’t come with strings attached.

What’s something nobody is talking about right now that you think will become a critical issue in the next few years? The national debt scares the living bejesus out of me. When you borrow money to pay interest, that’s a bad situation. I couldn’t run my business that way, and households can’t run their homes that way. I think we need to be proactive. We can fix a problem by becoming reactive, but the pain is greater. I’m a huge believer in taking the bull by the horns, addressing these issues and being up front with the American people as to where we’re at and what we’re going to do. I think that’s something we can tackle. We’ve shown that we have the ability to do hard things in the past. But I think we just need to be honest with ourselves and the American people and let them know that this debt thing is clearly, in my opinion, working its way to being the No. 1 security issue against this country.

Water works

Groundwater commission distributes millions in funding By Scott Murphy


Goffstown will use the money for its Department of Public Works’ water main extension. Merrimack Village District is a freestanding government entity and not part of the Town of Merrimack, according to the district’s business manager Jill Lavoie. She said two of the wells in the district are offline due to high levels of the chemicals PFOA and PFOS. The district anticipates that constructing a new water treatment plant for the two wells will cost $4.16 million. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics in Merrimack will be contributing $3.35 million, though Lavoie said the district needs additional funding to upgrade the existing infrastructure of the wells unrelated to the contamination. “We are proposing to use our Capital Reserves for 50 percent of the cost to upgrade existing infrastructure that’s unrelated to PFOA and PFOS, and the grant from Trust Funds for the remaining cost,” said Lavoie. “The [district] is working closely with the state ... to remediate the contamination in two of our wells, to make sure all of our drinking water resources are protected and sustainable, and to provide our customers with clean drinking water.” In a news release, the DOE said the money it received will “assist removing lead from water in schools,” and details about reimbursements, how schools should apply for funds and other information will be available by the end of the year.

A multimillion-dollar settlement from a drawn-out lawsuit that started back in 2003 has been put to use addressing water quality needs in New Hampshire communities. In September, the state’s Drinking Water and Groundwater Advisory Commission gave nearly $24 million in loans and grants to ensure local residents have access to clean drinking water. Funding for these projects was directed from a lawsuit with ExxonMobil that was introduced to the courts in 2003. Erin Holmes, an administrator at the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, said that runoff gasoline from ExxonMobil stations in New Hampshire had contaminated groundwater sources with an additive called MtBE. According to the New Hampshire Department of Justice, the case was finally settled in 2016 after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a $236 million state verdict against ExxonMobil. The New Hampshire General Court passed legislation to create the advisory commission and earmark the funding. Senate President Chuck Morse (R-Salem) chairs the 19-member commission, which includes legislators as well as conservation, health and water quality officials. Morse said the group has worked to find ways to bring money to the table from other sources. “Just in this [groundwater] category, we have probably north of $800 million worth of issues [in New Hampshire],” Morse said.

Slow growth

New Hampshire had one of the lowest annual growth rates in personal income during the second quarter (April, May, June) of 2018, according to a report from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. The Granite State recorded 2.7 percent growth in this timeframe, trailed by only Massachusetts (2.2 percent), Rhode Island (2 percent) and Washington (1.6 percent). Both Connecticut and Maine had strong growth rates at 4.2 percent, while Vermont also experienced solid growth at 3.8 percent. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The bureau defines personal income as “income received by, or on behalf of, all persons from all sources.” Overall, state personal income increased 4.2 percent at an annual rate in the U.S. during the second quarter. Texas led this increase with 6 percent, followed closely by Louisiana at 5.9 percent growth.

Postsecondary prep

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen announced that the New Hampshire College and University Council will receive $1,572,534 per year over the next seven years from the federal Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Program. The council will use the money to help prepare more low-income students for postsecondary education. Specifically, the council will focus on supporting Manchester students beginning in the sixth and seventh grades for seven years, serving 1,967 students per year. QOL Score: +1 Comment: As part of the announcement, Shaheen wrote that the council and the City of Manchester will focus on “collaborating with school and community leadership, prioritizing family engagement and providing financial support.”

Tax rankings

The Tax Foundation ranked New Hampshire sixth in its 2019 State Business Tax Climate Index. Rankings for the list were divided into categories for corporate, individual income, sales, property and unemployment insurance taxes. Unsurprisingly, the Granite State ranked first in the nation for its sales taxes (or lack thereof). New Hampshire didn’t fare as well in other categories, though. The Tax Foundation placed the state 44th for its property and unemployment insurance taxes, and 45th for its corporate taxes. QOL Score: 0 Comment: The Tax Foundation calculated each state’s effective property tax rate based on the total amount of property tax compared to average personal income. New Hampshire topped the list in this category at 5.44. However, the Granite State’s $3,054 per capita property taxes fell just behind New Jersey ($3,074) for highest in the nation.

Sox tied 1-1 after two with Yanks

As I write this I’m behind the baseball playoff series of local interest that could be over by the time you see this. But on Monday morning the Yanks and Sox are tied at 1-1 after a weekend that had the Boston media and talk radio doing what they do best — overreacting after every game, win or lose. First it was overly optimistic after Chris Sale answered a big question with a solid, but short, 5.1-inning start in Friday’s 5-4 win. But, after killing Grady Little for years, none mentioned that by doing what Grady Little didn’t do with Pedro Martinez in Game 7 of in 2003, a 5-0 game became a barely-got-out-alive 5-4 win after Alex Cora’s quick hook of Sale. Of course, we don’t know if Sale would’ve gotten out unscathed in the sixth if he wasn’t yanked. But I do know Cora always hooks quick and with a bullpen like he’s got the results were predictable. Still they won and most were happy. By Sunday, panic once again gripped the hub after David Price showed I was wrong saying last week “sooner or later the law of averages had to be on his side.” They weren’t as he submitted a 3 runs, 3 hits, 2 bombs, 2 walks line before getting pulled after just 5 outs in his latest post-season flop. Put another way, that’s the Boston baseball environment where manic attitude swings are commonplace and losing just the second of the first two games is treated as being “down” 1-1 in a playoff series. Beyond the scary Yankees power having Price and the bullpen scared to throw strikes, the thing that struck me most is that the Yankee-Red Sox rivalry is back in full bloom. You could tell by how Fenway shook as J.D. Martinez’s first-inning three-run bomb headed for the Monster seats on Friday and by the utter silence following Gray Sanchez’s titanic 479-foot

blast on Saturday. The other was that while the names may now be Betts, Judge, Stanton, Sale, Martinez and Gregorius, no matter how much the players change, the intensity stays the same. There have been four great eras in all, and it was no different than in the eras of DiMaggio and Williams, Munson and Fisk or Ortiz and Manny vs. Derek and Mariano. And with each team brimming with young stars, we’re at the dawn of this rivalry’s next great era. So here are a few things to think about, no matter who moves on to the ALCS. The Size: At 6’8 and 282 pounds Aaron Judge is a monster who makes the 6’6” 245-pound Giancarlo Stanton look like Phil Rizzuto by comparison. Throw in 6’8” 265 Dellin Betances, 6’3” 225 Luke Voit and 6’5” 280 Lance Lynn and they look more like a football team. They’re the biggest baseball team I’ve ever seen by far. The Hate Factor: Even with a fight earlier in the year this doesn’t come close to either the ’70s or the early 2000s. Other than maybe Voit, and that’s just because of the haircut, there are no obvious potential villains. What is up with that hair, dude? Fight Factor: Given their size you’d have to be nuts to fight the Yanks. But a match-up between the 5’8” Betts and 6’8” Judge would bring to mind an NBA dust-up from days gone by featuring 5’9” Calvin Murphy and 6’9” Sidney Wicks. Murphy hit Wicks in the face about five times before he could even get his hands up because his were so quick and Down Went Sidney! The Power: The 1978 versions were called “power laden” but those Sox hit “only” 172, four more than last year’s edition considered so power-deficient. For the Yanks it was a paltry 125. In 1941 it was 151 for the “Bronx Bombers” and even with Ted Williams’ 37 it was just 125 for Boston! So neither era stacks up to the colossal power of the 2018 Yankees, who hit an alltime league record 267 bombs, or Boston’s

208. The better comparison is 2003-2004, when Manny and company hit 238 and 222 and the Yanks had 230 and 242. The Pitching: In 1949 Mel Parnell and Ellis Kinder won 25 and 23 respectively while combining for 46 of the team’s 84 complete games. For the Yanks Vic Raschi was the top winner with 21 on a staff with 54 complete games. Neither 2018 team had a 20-game winner, and to illustrate the biggest difference between today and then, it’s 138 combined complete games in ’49 vs. four in 2018. The Managers: Neither is unlikable like Billy Martin, as Cora and Aaron Boone are more like Terry Francona and Joe Torre in likability. Both are rookie managers who once played in the rivalry for the teams they manage, which has never happened. Boone, for instance, you may have heard, hit a far more devastating homer to Boston in 2003 than even Bucky bleeping Dent. In 1949 Casey Stengel was in his first year with the Yanks, while Sox manager Joe McCarthy, having already won seven World Series managing the DiMaggio-led crew in the ’30s and ’40s in New York, was really a Yankee at heart. Casey did share Cora’s quick hook. Most notably when the Yanks needed to win the final two games at Fenway for the 1949 pennant. He yanked Allie Reynolds with one out in the third for his closer (then called fireman) Joe Page, who astonishingly went the final 6.2 innings as the Yanks stayed alive for Sunday’s showdown with a 5-4 win. The only bigger difference between then and this weekend was the guy Casey pulled with virtually the same stat line Price had Saturday in going 7-2, Reynolds was usually money in post season, which Price certainly is not. So while I’m not sure where it all stands as you read this, I’ll bet new stories will have been added to the history of the great rivalry. Email Dave Long at

Where are they now?

G-town gets by Central

Nail-Biter of the Week: If you like nerve-racking endings Friday at Gill was for you. With Goffstown trailing Central 18-13, QB Charlie Keith runs in a TD with 49 seconds left from the two on fourth and goal – 19-18. Jeffrey Heger runs in the two-point conversion – 21-18. Central drives to the G-town 18, where an apparent Alex Hawkom-to-Kevin Upton TD pass is ruled just out of the end zone just before Hawkom’s desperation pass is picked off by Keith on the final play to secure the win. Sports 101: This man has the most wins, losses and strikeouts in World Series play – name him. In Case You Missed It: Nice first pro season for Bedford’s Grant Lavigne when he batted a robust .350. In 206 at-bats he had 78 hits with 13 doubles, two triples, six homers, 38 RBI and scored 45 runs for the Rookie League “Grant Junction” Rockies. He also had a stretch in early July when he homered in three straight games. It’s actually “Grand” Junction, but I’m guessing the city council is now pondering dropping the d for a t!

ED WOLAK - BOYS & GIRLS CLUB CLASS OF 1967 In between playing games at the then Manchester Boys Club, Ed Wolak was handing out ping pong paddles, pool sticks and making popcorn as a volunteer behind the counter. Later it was supervising archery events and teaching younger kids how to play games like chess. He spent so much time helping, he racked up more volunteer hours than anyone, leading to the formation of The Keystone Club and being named Boy of the Year in 1967. He used that work ethic later as a part-timer at Dunkin Donuts while attending Manchester Central and New Hampshire College. Soon after graduating from NHC, he bought his first franchise in Portland, Maine. Number two and three followed a short time later making Ed the youngest in DD history to own three franchises. The building never stopped. Today he owns 96 franchises, spread over Maine, New Hampshire and Upstate New York with over 2,000 employees. Even with that, he manages to stay involved as a trustee at his alma mater, now known as SNHU, where the Edward S. Wolak Library Learning Common’s building is named in his honor.

.... The Boys Club provided me a place to go where I was accepted by people my own age in a supervised atmosphere. It also provided me my first opportunity at volunteering, which became a constant in my life and a priority in all the communities my business serves…

Sports Glossary

Williams-DiMaggio Era: It had Joe DiMaggio’s famed 56-game hitting streak and Ted Williams hit .406 to be the last to hit .400. The Sox beat the Yanks in ’46 and ’48 while 1949 came down to the year’s final two games at Fenway. But the Yanks won then, in Joe D’s rookie year of 1936, and again in ’37, ’38, ’39, ’41, ’42, ’45, ’47, and ’49 through ’51. After that the Clipper retired and the Sox faded — so it was actually total NY domination. Munson-Fisk Era: This had the most hate, growing from the two catchers’ rivalry. Upper hand to Boston from ’72 to ’75. After that, all Yanks until Munson died in a 1979 plane crash, including blowing a 14-game lead and Fenway playoff loss in the Bucky Dent homer game. Nomar/Pedro – Jeter/Core Era: Went through Nomar and Pedro’s best time in Boston in the late ’90s, while the Yanks Core 4 was central to this and the next era as they won four more World Series. Ortiz/Schilling – Jeter/A-Rod Era: It was historic and with vastly different endings in backto-back years it’s the penultimate era. The Yanks won the devastating 2003 ALCS Game 7 on the Aaron Boone homer. In 2004 there was the Varitek-A-Rod home plate fight, getting off the mat after going down 0-3 as everyone said “here we go again” to win in seven behind the heroics of David Ortiz and Curt Schilling, and then ending the 86-year course.

Valley Cemetery

Bounded by Auburn, Pine, Valley and Willow streets in Manchester Note: This is a follow-up to an article on Valley Cemetery in the July 12 issue of the Hippo. Visit and click on past issues; the story is on page 6. Though there’s still work to be done, a group of local volunteers is making progress with efforts to restore Valley Cemetery in Manchester. The 20-acre downtown area is moving closer to being the inviting public space it once was decades ago. “Everything’s a phase, and the first phase has been cleaning [the cemetery] up,” said Mike Drelick, a regular volunteer at the cemetery. “Then we can focus on fundraising [for larger projects].” Tanya Frazier, a solutions engineer at Benefit Strategies in Manchester, has been spearheading the restoration efforts at the cemetery. While she said the group’s monthto-month improvements may be gradual, the cemetery looks greatly improved from when she first adopted it last summer. Frazier and a core group of volunteers typically work at the cemetery every other Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. However, she admitted that this summer’s weather has presented some challenges. “We were hit with quite a few rainy Saturdays in a row,” said Frazier. “We lost a little bit of traction, but we’ve still made a lot of great progress.” That primarily includes cutting back overgrown trees and bushes that had consumed several parts of the cemetery.

said their efforts have revealed several mausoleums and groups of gravestones that were either obscured or hidden by unkempt brush. Additionally, these efforts have helped achieve Frazier’s primary goal of making Valley Cemetery a more open, attractive place for the public. She said the tree and foliage coverage was often used by people as a place to hide for shelter, drug use and lewd activities. Over the last year, the group has revealed more of these hiding spots as they cut more overgrowth, and Frazier said they’ve started to find fewer heroin needles and makeshift shelters and tarps peeking through the trees. As a results, she’s also started to see more members of the public walking through the cemetery. In the colder months, Frazier said, the

Frazier hasn’t been able to find much history or photos of the chapel in its heyday, but she said the potential is there. Eventually, she envisions transforming the space into a volunteer hub and visitors center. “The ceiling is stunning. It’s made with beautiful, dark wood, and there’s so much other beautiful work in there,” said Frazier. “We want to take down some of the plywood and replace [the windows] with Plexiglas so there’s some light coming [in].” Future projects include marking the roughly one mile of paved walkways in the top part of the cemetery, as well as cleaning up another path in the lower basin. Eventually, Frazier would also like to fix and add to the cemetery’s street lights. These major projects aside, both Frazier and Drelick said there is still clean-up work to be done, and they welcome as many volunteer hours as people are willing to commit. “We don’t expect people to spend three hours here like I do,” said Drelick. “If you want to help, just come through and pick up a bag of trash.” Search for “Save Valley Cemetery, Manchester New Hampshire” on Facebook. — Scott Murphy

Forest Hill Cemetery

Cemetery Road (behind First Parish Congregational Church, 47 E. Derry Road, Derry) This 35-acre cemetery is part of the East Derry Historic District, an area of Derry that

includes several other buildings and houses that were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. One of the cemetery’s biggest claims to fame is that it’s the site of the family burial plot of Alan Shepard Jr., a Derry native who became the first American to ever fly in space, in 1961. Shepard himself is not buried here – his ashes were scattered at three separate locations, including at the site of his childhood home – but a memorial marker, or cenotaph, recognizing his notoriety can be found within his family’s burial plot. It’s just one unique story that cements Forest Hill Cemetery in Derry’s history, long before it was even incorporated as a U.S. town. In fact, the town was known as “Nutfield” dating back to the year 1719, when Irish settlers first came to the land. “The cemetery is just oozing with history,” said T.J. Cullinane, president of the Friends of the Forest Hill Cemetery, who regularly gives historic walking tours of some of the most notable gravesites. The front gates bearing the cemetery’s name were donated to the town by General George Thom, a Pinkerton Academy graduate and Civil War veteran. who is buried there along with his entire immediate family. Not far from the cemetery entrance is a collection of tombstones separated by a gate with a “First Settler” sign. This is where the Rev. James MacGregor is buried, who Cullinane said is credited with being the settlement’s original founder, along with his family and other members of his group that first arrived there. According to Cullinane, the oldest known

stone that can still be found at the cemetery is that of Peter Cochran, who died Christmas Day in 1722, the same year the cemetery was founded. “At the age of 92, he decided to emigrate here from Northern Ireland,” he said. “We don’t know for sure the reason why he would decide to go overseas at the age of 92, but Northern Ireland at that time was beset by a number of wars and sieges.” Cullinane often tells a couple of “ghost stories” to visitors during his tours, one of them involving the late Dorothy Goldman, founder of the Friends of the Forest Hill Cemetery. “Dorothy said she was walking in the cemetery one day when she saw an orb, which is a ghostly apparition but not a fullbody manifestation,” he said. “She saw the orb hover for a moment and disappear, so she approached it and saw that an old gravestone had tumbled over … and as she looked closer, she saw that it had obscured two flat veterans’ stones.” Those stones, it turned out, belonged to Sgt. William McKinney and his brother Pvt. Andrew McKinney, who both served in the Union Army during the Civil War. William died in 1864 and Andrew just a year later, in 1865. “Their names were covered up by a fallen stone, so nobody could see and honor them,” Cullinane said. “So Dorothy worked with the town to get them back up and bring them in full view, and one wonders if she would have known to take that action had that orb not appeared where it did.” — Matt Ingersoll

In a section surrounded by an iron fence in the southeastern corner of the cemetery is an area known as the Minot Enclosure. It is here where one of its most famous burial sites can be found: that of Franklin Pierce, the 14th president of the United States and to date the only president to hail from the Granite State. Julie Cole of the Pierce Brigade, a volunteer organization that maintains and conducts tours of The Pierce Manse — Pierce’s home in Concord — said the president, his wife and two of his three sons are all buried in Old North Cemetery. Pierce had purchased a burial plot for the cemetery while he was still in office in 1855. “His original stone marker … was in such bad repair that it was used as the base of the new one,” Cole said. “So part of it is still there but in a different form.” Today, a tall monument with Pierce’s name engraved in the middle, his wife’s name Jane on the left, and sons Frank and Benjamin on the right, can be found in the cemetery. Both sons had died at very young ages years before. Cole said they were originally buried in a separate part of the cemetery but were moved to the Minot Enclosure with their father following that section’s completion. Other notable burial sites in the cemetery include those of the Walkers, one of the very first families who settled in the area of what is now Concord (first called the township of Pennycook, then later Rumford for a time before being changed to its present name) in the 1700s. Rev. Timothy Walker, known for being the city’s first minister and a leader of settlers who traveled north from the Woburn, Mass., area, is buried in Old North Cemetery along with several of his family members. The stone for his daughter Sarah, who died in 1736 at the age of 4, is the oldest known stone in the cemetery, according to Cemetery Administrator Jill McDaniel of the City of Concord. — Matt Ingersoll

Old North Cemetery

North State Street, Concord On the northern end of New Hampshire’s Capital City, less than a mile to the west of Kimball Jenkins Estate, lies Old North Cemetery, an L-shaped cemetery a little under six acres in size. It’s the city’s oldest cemetery – dating back to 1730 – and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.

428 W. Hollis St., Nashua There are 20 Jewish cemeteries in New Hampshire, a majority of which are congregated in the southern part of the state. One of the oldest is Temple Beth Abraham Cemetery in Nashua, which was founded in 1895. The cemetery is small, with only around 500 gravestones. Former Nashua resident Rabbi Joshua Segal has written a book on all 20 of the Granite State’s Jewish cemeteries and given tours on several of them. He said among the biggest factors of Jewish cemeteries that attract interest among taphophiles — people who have an interest in cemeteries — are the unique iconography and the mystery of the Hebrew language found on many of the gravestones. “You’ll see the most common icon in Jewish cemeteries, from about 1925 on, is the Jewish star. Prior to that, [the star] was about the only iconography that existed, because monuments were hand-carved and expensive,” Segal said. “Starting in about 1951, or around post World War II, as sandblasting technology took over, there are now more than 60 different religious identity icons that you’ll find.” You’ll still see the Jewish star adorned across many gravestones at Jewish cemeteries, along with others like a pair of hands with outspread fingers on men’s stones symbolizing a priestly blessing, or someone believed to have been a descendant of Moses’s brother Aaron; a candelabra on women’s stones symbolizing a woman’s piety; and a pair of clasping hands on double gravestones symbolizing the union of a husband and wife. Segal said another motif that was much more common in the earlier half of the 20th century involved a symbol or even a gravestone constructed to look like half a tree cut off, to symbolize someone dying young. Others, like lamps, which are depicted as a symbol for eternity, have been used in Jewish cemeteries for decades. Indicators of some of the oldest stones found in Temple Beth Abraham Cemetery are stones made of marble, which bear a white color and much rougher texture than the granite stones, Segal said, or those written only in Hebrew. Despite its small size and history that lasts more than 100 years, a large section along the back fence is still available for future burials. “I’d say there is probably enough space … to last another 75 years or so,” Segal said. — Matt Ingersoll

Chester Village Cemetery

19 Raymond Road, Chester Many confident artists sign their work, and Abel and Stephen Webster of Hollis were no exception. The brothers were some of the earliest and most sought after headstone carvers in the region in colonial New Hampshire. Visitors of Chester Village Cemetery can easily spot their work among the aisles of grave markers, as each brother’s signature mark will be staring right back at them. Aaron Mansur, chair of the Chester Village Cemetery Trustees, said that Abel and Steven capped off their carvings with happy and sad faces, respectively. “It was just a fun little thing they did to add their signature,” said Mansur. While there are numerous faces smiling and scowling around the cemetery, they’re only found on a specific type of stone. The brothers became popular carvers around town in the mid-1750s, and at the time, Mansur said, slate gravestones were most common, due to its affordability and being relatively lightweight. “Granite [headstones] didn’t start to come around until the mid-1800s,” said Mansur. “It was pretty expensive and hard to transport.” The Webster brothers were among the first carvers to work at the Chester Village Cemetery after it was purchased in 1751. The Chester Historical Society claims the graveyard is one of the oldest in the state, and it serves as the final home for noteworthy Granite Staters like William Richardson, chief justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court, and Governors John and Samuel Bell (also brothers). Chester Village Cemetery was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, though it’s not the only remnant of colonial New Hampshire in town. Across the street is the Chester Congregational Church (4 Chester St.), established in 1730 and added to the National Register in 1986. The Chester Historical Society said the church is significant for being a “well-designed and well-preserved” example of the Greek Revival style.

The Chester Historical Society is housed in Stevens Memorial Hall (One Chester St.) farther up the street. The organization reports that the hall was built in 1910 and originally housed the town selectmen’s office, library and a meeting space. Not to be outdone, the hall was also added to the National Register in 2004. The society’s office and exhibits are open at the hall on the second Saturday of every month from 10 a.m. to noon. The Village Cemetery Trustees also lists 10 other cemeteries and family lots around town on its webpage. Visit — Scott Murphy

New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery

110 Daniel Webster Hwy., Boscawen Approaching its 21st birthday in November, the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen is an honorary resting place for Granite State service members and their dependents. Along with grave sites, the cemetery’s 14 cleared acres include several monuments and features commemorating the state’s military history. Cemetery director Michael Horne said veterans and veteran service organizations converged in the 1990s to find “a place where veterans of all branches of services and conflicts could lay together and be honored and recognized for their sacrifices.” At the time, Horne said the closest veteran-specific burial option was over 100 miles south of the border at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne, Mass., on Cape Cod. On July 1, 1997, the New Hampshire legislature officially established the cemetery on 104 acres of state-owned forest in Boscawen, about 15 minutes north of Concord. A few months later, the cemetery buried its first veteran: chief warrant officer Ernest Holm, who served in the Navy during World War I and World War II. According to Horne, eligible veterans can be buried at the cemetery at no cost. Veterans’ dependants, including spouses and children, can also be interred for $350.

As of late September, he said there are 10,949 individuals buried at the cemetery. Between June 1, 2017, and July 30, 2018, the cemetery had 894 burials, part of a steady increase over the years, according to Horne. Back in July, Sens. Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen announced the cemetery would receive $2.5 million to expand and develop an additional 4.6 acres and conduct needed repairs. Additionally, the cemetery will be able to add to the burial options it offers veterans, including cement crypts. The cemetery offers other ways for visitors to pay their respects. On site are a circle of flags, a memorial walkway and a “20 Points of New Hampshire Military Service” area with monuments bearing information of the history of the armed forces in the Granite State. The cemetery hosts annual ceremonies on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. This year’s Veterans Day ceremony will be held on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m. Horne said a portion of the ceremony will commemorate the centennial anniversary of the end of World War I (Nov. 11, 1918). The new Veteran Heritage Learning Center will also open its doors this Veterans Day. The center will feature audio and video displays, interactive kiosks and artifacts from New Hampshire veterans who served in different conflicts. Horne said the cemetery is “a little over halfway” to meeting its $700,000 capital campaign goal and will continue adding to the center’s educational offerings. “Even though we’re 21 years old, there’s still a good percentage of the [state’s] population that doesn’t know that we have a New Hampshire veterans cemetery,” said Horne. “The learning center [will have] a lot of historic and valuable information that needs to be communicated and passed on to future generations.” — Scott Murphy

Point of Graves

1-199 Mechanic St., Portsmouth The graves of some of New Hampshire’s earliest settlers can be found at Point of Graves in Portsmouth, located next to Prescott Park, across the street from the Strawbery Banke Museum and overlooking the Piscataqua River. According to the walking tour brochure published by The Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Cemetery Committee, Point of Graves, the state’s oldest colonial burial ground, was formally established in 1671 by Captain John Pickering, who donated the land for burials under the condition that he be able to let his cattle graze there. For that reason, many of the earliest gravestones have been destroyed; the oldest gravestone is marked “1682.” Point of Graves spans about half an acre. It was filled to capacity and had its last burial in the 1880s. There are currently around 125 gravestones still standing. Roxie Zwicker, owner of the touring event company New England Curiosities, which offers tours of Point of Graves, said one of the first things she covers on the tour is the carvings on the gravestones. Up until the early 1800s, many of the hand-carved gravestones were shipped up from Boston. They feature images of skulls and crossbones, winged skulls, empty hourglasses and eerie-looking cherubs. “There are a lot of great epitaphs and superstitions in the carvings on the gravestones,” Zwicker said. “The gravestones themselves are one of the first forms of American folk art. They are museum-worthy.” A little known fact about Point of Graves, Zwicker said, is that all of the people buried there were buried facing the east. “So at the day of the Last Judgment, when the Holy Creator appeared at dawn in the east, everyone would just rise facing that direction,” she said. The walking tour brochure highlights some notable people buried in Point of 18

Graves, including John Jackson (d. 1691), a mariner and owner of land on Little Harbor and Jackson Island in the Piscataqua River; James Lovett (d. 1718), a bookkeeper for provincial court president John Cutts; William Button (d. 1693), one of the wealthiest men in New Hampshire at the time; and Jane Meserve (d. 1747), wife of Colonel Nathaniel Meserve, a prominent shipbuilder and commander of a New Hampshire regiment during the French and Indian War. “You see all these historical homes in Portsmouth; these are the people who built and lived in them. A lot of street names in Portsmouth are also named after the families buried there,” Zwicker said. “For anyone looking to connect with the history of the area, it’s worth spending an hour or two to look around and learn about the people who built our community.” Point of Graves is “not without its ghost stories,” Zwicker said. One of the gravesites with the most reported supernatural activity is that of Elizabeth Peirce, a mother of nine children who died in 1717 at age 42 from tuberculosis. “People say they’ve heard footsteps behind them, felt like they were being touched, sensed another presence or felt like they were being followed around, and have taken strange photographs,” she said. “When it comes to the ghost stories, we leave it up to the people to decide whether they are true or imagined.” — Angie Sykeny

Humane Society for Greater Nashua, 24 Ferry Road, Nashua Around 3,000 pets have found their final resting place at Proctor Cemetery, a pet cemetery run by the Humane Society for Greater Nashua. The oldest pet cemetery in the state, the 2-acre plot is located on the Humane Society grounds in front of the main facility and is home to all kinds of pets. “We have cats and dogs, a horse that was 44 years old, a goat who was a bit of a Facebook star around here, and we even have

some lizards and toads,” Heather Coleman, cemetery coordinator, said. According to Douglas Barry, president and CEO of the Humane Society, the property for the cemetery was donated in 1930 by Nashua businessman Roscoe Proctor after a huge fire on Allds Street in Nashua consumed hundreds of homes and claimed the lives of many pets. The first pet to be buried there was a cat named Creampot, who was killed in the fire. Proctor Cemetery also holds several notable pets, Barry said, including the German Shepherd Patrick James, first lieutenant in the canine corps during WWII and a member of the American Legion; and the Siberian Husky Paugus, who went on three expeditions to the South Pole and whose grandfather was Chinook, the famous dog who accompanied Admiral Richard Byrd on his first expedition to the South Pole in the late 1920s. There are all kinds of headstones in the cemetery, including flat and standing headstones and headstones with decorative statues. The grounds are regularly maintained with green grass, flowers, trees and benches, and many people visit their pets on a regular basis and put flowers on their graves, Coleman said. “It’s beautiful and very serene. It’s a nice place to come and sit or to walk through. It’s nice to read all of the engravings and see how passionate people are about their pets,” she said. Proctor Cemetery is currently open for new burials — the most recent burial was a month ago — and Barry said there is still space for 300 to 500 more plots. “We’re always looking at other options, too, because we know that one day, we will run out of space,” he said, “but we have a total of six acres of property, so we have room to expand the cemetery in the future if we need to.” Coleman said the demand for pet burials has been steady, and that many people like to have something tangible to remember their pet by. “That’s why a lot of people bury their pets in their backyards. They want to keep them close,” she said. “But if they want to be sure [the gravesite] will have perpetual care, they take advantage of our services.” To have a pet buried in the cemetery, the pet owner must decide whether they want a body burial or a cremation. If they want a body burial, they need to provide their own casket. The burial is usually done within a week of the pet’s death. The pet owner can also request to have a small memorial service on the day of the burial, during which Coleman will read the pet loss poem “Pawprints Left By You.” “I think that poem really encompasses what a pet means to a person,” Coleman said. “For many people, their pet is not just an animal; it’s a family member.” — Angie Sykeny

ARTS Artists take downtown

Nashua’s ArtWalk Weekend returns By Angie Sykeny

You’ll find art around every corner during Nashua’s 14th annual ArtWalk Weekend, with more than 100 artists showing and selling their artwork at their studios and at partnering businesses downtown, plus art and craft demonstrations and workshops, live music and theater performances and live art events. The event, hosted by City Arts Nashua, will take place Saturday, Oct. 13, and Sunday, Oct. 14. “We really strive to make the event walkable so that people can easily go from one place to another,” event coordinator Tara Kalish said. “It allows art lovers to gather in one centralized area, to celebrate the arts and support local artists by looking at what they are creating and buying their work.” Art media represented will include painting, photography, mixed media, pen and ink, pottery, jewelry, stained glass, quilting, collage, papier mache, fiber art, glassware, furniture, wood burning, charcoal and more. Most of the participating artists will be paired with downtown businesses and will set up shop in their storefronts. “It’s a nice partnership between the artists and the businesses who value the arts in Nashua, and helps give the artists a platform to share their work,” Kalish said. Artists who have their own studios in Nashua, like Bonnie Guercio, who works out of one of the nine Picker Collaborative Artists studios on Pine Street, will open their studios to the public for the weekend. “[The ArtWalk] gives every artist in Nashua a chance to participate, which is great for artists who don’t get a lot of exposure,” Guercio said. “It’s a chance for them to get some exposure and show their work and hopefully create patrons for themselves.” Guercio has been on the City Arts Nashua board for seven years and has participated in the ArtWalk as an artist ArtWalk Weekend Where: Downtown Nashua When: Saturday, Oct. 13, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday Oct. 14, noon to 4 p.m. Cost: Free admission More info:

for eight years. Her work includes mixed media collage done on canvas, paper, cardboard and other foundations, using paper scraps, pictures, paint and found objects like ticket stubs, candy bar wrappers, stickers and scraps of metal, plastic and wood. “I guess you could say most of my work is abstract, but it has a lot of elements in it that sort of tell a story,” she said. “Mostly, I just create things that mean something to me, or things that I think look pretty.” At the ArtWalk, Guercio will have her work for sale, which ranges in size from miniatures as small as 3x3 inches to larger pieces as big as 3x3 feet. She will also have card and card set prints of her work available. Attendees can get a map of all the locations housing artists from the City Arts Nashua website, inside The Telegraph and at the event at certain locations. “The map is very comprehensive. It lists all of the artists participating, where they are set up and what sort of work they do and what medium they work in,” Kalish said. “Plus, you’ll see that the businesses will have signs in their windows, letting

Goffstown Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off and Regatta returns By Angie Sykeny

Nineteen years ago, Jim Beauchemin was looking for a way to get more use out of the giant pumpkins he grew and competed with in weigh-offs. So, instead of continuing to throw them away, he created the Goffstown Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off and Regatta. “You can see big pumpkins at the fair, and it’s cool to see who grew the biggest pumpkin, but when that’s over, what can you do with it now?” said Charity Frost, executive director of Goffstown Main Street, which hosts the event. “[Beauchemin] found a way to harness that excitement about growing giant pumpkins and use it to have a fun event in town.” The two-day fall festival returns on Saturday, Oct. 13, and Sunday, Oct. 14, with all kinds of pumpkin-related fun in the downtown area, including the main event, the regatta, during which teams from local groups and businesses will race in boats made from giant pumpkins in the Piscatacuog River. “For the regatta, there are crowds that go all the way down the street,” Frost said. “It’s not exactly highbrow entertainment, but it’s a silly and fun and unique thing, and everyone wants to see it. It has become the quintessential Goffstown-in-the-fall thing.” The New Hampshire Giant Pumpkin Growers Association official state weigh-off will take place on Saturday morning on the town common. Prizes will be awarded in different categories. Then, the pumpkins will be carted to Mill Street, where the regatta teams will carve them out and turn them into functioning boats. The decoration theme for this

year’s regatta is “Magic.” Frost said the teams like to get creative with their designs. “Last year, the theme was ‘Storybooks,’ so we had a Peter Pan Captain Hook pirate ship, a Snow White Maleficent boat with dragon wings, and a Shrek pumpkin,” she said. “There are always a lot of cool designs.” The regatta will take place on Sunday afternoon. That morning, the teams will test their pumpkin boats on the water and place sandbags along the inside so that the boats are completely balanced. “The sandbags are a big part of it because balancing the boat is really important,” Frost said. “Pumpkins aren’t even, so you have to add weight to keep them from rolling over, and that takes a lot of sandbags.” There are typically eight to 10 boats in the race, but that number can vary depending on what the harvest year was like. Frost said that,

from what she has heard from growers, this year “wasn’t great, but wasn’t horrible” for pumpkin-growing. There are currently five boats guaranteed to race. “It’s always a last-minute scramble to see how many boats we can get,” she said. “Of course, it’s more fun when there are more boats, so we’re hoping to get some more.” Trophies will be awarded to the winner of the race and to the team with the best pumpkin boat design. Other festivities happening throughout the weekend will include a bounce house, vendor booths, live music, food, an art show and an apple slingshot activity in which people can shoot fallen apples donated by local farms at floating targets on the river. “It’s more difficult than you’d think, but both the kids and the adults have a lot of fun with it,” Frost said, “and, it’s a great way to

Time to clean up Seven fall gardening chores By Henry Homeyer

For many years I was in denial. Yes, I refused to accept that fall and winter were on the way by October. I didn’t start fall clean-up until November, and by then it was cold, raw, often wet and unpleasant out. Now, having reached a certain age, I prefer to work when it is warm and sunny so I start fall clean-up in September, and try hard to finish by the end of October. I recommend you do so, too. Here’s my list: 1. Clean up the vegetable garden. This means pulling plants and weeds and covering the bare soil with mulch. I put things that might harbor disease or insect pests on my burn pile; everything else goes in the compost. So tomato and potato plants and all vine crops go on the burn pile. As to mulching the soil, I do this for two reasons: First, I don’t want hard rains to wash away my topsoil. That is true everywhere on my property — bare soil invites erosion. Second, bare soil is open to receive wind-blown weed seeds. They would germinate next spring before I plant my tomatoes, if I let them. What do I use for mulch? In the vegetable garden, I use fall leaves that I have chopped up with my lawnmower. They are great for improving the soil, too. I rarely have bare soil in my flower beds; they are full of perennials. 2. Cut back perennials. Cleaning up the beds now, and doing a good weeding, will save me a lot of time in the spring, when I am busy with other spring tasks like

planting my vegetables. I don’t cut back everything. I leave flowers with seeds that the finches and other seed-eaters will enjoy. Black-eyed Susans and purple coneflower are two they love. Sunflowers will get eaten in place, and most have already been eaten; if so, I cut down the stalks. 3. Blackberries and raspberry plants need to be cut back now. Cut off the stems that produced berries this year and leave the new growth. These berries produce on second-year growth. I have a cut-and-grab pole pruner which helps me to avoid getting scraped by thorns. I just cut the plants at ground level and the tool grabs on to the cut stem, allowing me to pull it out and place it in the wheelbarrow without getting bitten by the thorns. It is available from The Wildflower Seed & Tool Company. These tools come in various telescoping lengths. 4. Add fuel stabilizer to your gas can now, so that your lawnmower and other power tools will go into winter with gas that will not go flat. Chain saws, rototillers and such need it too, and you may need to drain out the existing fuel, refill and run them for 10 minutes to avoid having gunky gas in the machines in spring. Ask at your local garage or auto part store. After you have tended to your power tools, take a few minutes to clean up and oil your hand tools, too. Before you put away your shovels and rakes, wipe the metal clean of soil and apply a little light machine oil to prevent rusting. Wooden handles benefit from an application of boiled linseed oil. I have one tool with a wood handle that has been in my family for over 60 years. I

don’t leave it outside in the rain, and I oil it once a year. It’s as good as new and has a lovely patina. 5. Divide daylilies, iris, phlox, asters and other large clumps of perennials now. Cut the stalks to the ground, and then lift the clump with a garden fork by going around the clump and loosening the soil on all sides. Then pry it out and divide into two, three or four pieces with a shovel or a hand tool. Don’t worry about cutting the roots, they will not be damaged. You can do this in the spring if you prefer. This is also the time to move peonies, if you must. 6. Feed your soil and lawn. Fall is a good time to add compost, fertilizer and limestone to your soil and lawn. I test my soil pH with a little kit that costs just about $5. I aim to have my soil pH between 6.2 and 6.8, which is just slightly acidic. If the pH in your soil is lower than 6.0, you should add limestone to raise the pH

such as trebuchets, catapults and air cannons to launch pumpkins and other extreme items in both distance and target competitions (four rounds each).

(except for blueberries, hollies and rhododendrons, which like acidic soil). Adding compost will improve almost any soil. I added it to my vegetable garden for 30 years, and now have a soil so rich and black I need not add any more. Fertilizer? I only add organic fertilizers as they add all the micronutrients plants need, but that are not in chemical fertilizers. And organic fertilizers are slow-release. 7. Lastly, mow your lawn before the snow flies. Bring the blades down lower, as a shorter cut will help to minimize risk of fungal diseases. Rake it if need be, so there are not clumps of grass left on the lawn. Getting ready for winter is satisfying for me. It’s like tucking a child into bed. And I like looking out the windows and seeing a tidy garden, all ready for spring. Have at it!

Dear Glenn, I tried to research the company and really didn’t come up with much but I think if you have the time and desire, you should try going directly to the Portsmouth Historical Society and ask them if they can help with the company information. I believe what you have is a portable heater for possibly inside a barn or some outside use. There doesn’t seem to be a vent for smoke so I’m thinking that it was used outdoors. The grate makes me think it was for coal. The tray on the bottom was for ash and cleaning purposes. Sometimes the history doesn’t determine the value on items such as this one — it would be the demand from possibly a Portsmouth collector. I also don’t think the value would be more than around $100, but

Leak continues despite repeated attempts to fix the problem Dear Car Talk: I have a 2016 Volkswagen SportWagen. It has a big sunroof, and a big leak. Ounces drip down from the overhead center console onto the stereo faceplate, around By Ray Magliozzi the headliner, down the front driver pillar and out the tweeter that’s mounted at the base of the pillar. This is the second time I’ve had it in for several days to be fixed, along with headliner replacement, sunshade replacement, etc. The first time, they said the spot welds that hold the sunroof to the roof were too big, which left gaps where water would overflow the trough and into the car if it rained hard enough. This week they applied epoxy to seal up some metal areas. They thought it was fixed, but the subsequent water test has them dropping the headliner again today to do more sealing. My concern is that even if they fix the leak now, should I expect more problems (either leaks or electrical issues) down the road after the warranty ends? I usually keep a car 10 to 12 years. Perhaps I should cut my losses and trade it in? — Jeff Wow. It sounds like one of those shower systems I’ve been coveting with 10 different

HIPPO | OCTOBER 11 - 17, 2018 | PAGE 30

shower heads that spray you from all directions. And VW threw this in for free! This is a perfect candidate for a trade-in, Jeff. Who knows what’s wrong? We have seen lots of leaky VWs, but it’s often clogged drains or bad drain fittings. And they would have fixed your car already if it was either of those. So it sure sounds like it’s something structural. Maybe something got bent or twisted. Or dropped off the delivery truck. What’s called for here is a calm but serious chat with the dealership’s general manager. Don’t just walk in and confront him. Make an appointment and say you need to speak to him about your car. Tell him you chose the car because it’s a good fit for you, and you planned to keep it for 10 years. But that the leaks they’ve been unable to fix have you very concerned about the long-term viability of the car, its body integrity and, given the gallons of water it has leaked, its electrical system and possible mold. Tell him you’d rather not go through the hassle of making a lemon law claim (research it in your state in advance) or complaining about the car and the dealership on social media. But you would like a solution. Suggest that perhaps he could work out something with you where he could give you a very good price on a trade-in, and a very

good price on another new one — a 2017 or 2018. Or perhaps he has a used 2016 you can swap straight-up. Make sure he knows you had no intention of buying another new car so soon, but this problem is embarrassing for everybody (especially you, since you drive your elderly mother to church every Sunday, and she’s allergic to water). Let him know that you’d really like to work out something amicable. Do a little research in advance, not just on your state’s lemon law, but on the tradein value and private-sale value of your car. Research the cost of a new one, too, so you’ll know if he’s really helping you, or just pouring more water in your sunroof, Jeff. Dear Car Talk: After some research a few years ago, I purchased a used 2006 Lexus ES 330 with 60,000 miles. It has been a really reliable and comfortable car (I used to be a truck gal). I have kept up all the regular maintenance and would like to keep it until it goes or I go. I now have 112,000 miles on it. My question to you is about changing to synthetic oil at my next oil change. I have read many pros and cons on the subject and would like your opinion. Your thoughts? By the way, I read your advice column every week in our

paper. Thanks for writing fun, informative articles. — Paula There are a bunch of myths going around about synthetic oil, Paula. People say you can’t switch to synthetic oil after using conventional, dinosaur-based oil — your car will reject the new fluid like a transplanted spleen from your annoying brother-in-law. They say you can’t mix synthetic oil with conventional oil inside the engine — they’ll react badly to each other, like two grouchy, old cats. And they say synthetic oil is lower in calories if you use it in salad dressing. All of these claims are false, as far as we can tell. Although we haven’t tested the salad dressing as of yet. We’re really impressed with synthetic oil. It seems to lubricate better and last longer. And because you change it less frequently, there’s less waste oil that we have to dispose of or reprocess. So I wouldn’t hesitate to switch over to synthetic. Otherwise, it sounds like you’re doing all the right things. You’re doing all the regular maintenance, even as the car gets older. And presumably, you’re driving it gently, which is a huge factor in automotive lifespan. So my only suggestion would be to get into an exercise routine, eat a diet rich in leafy greens and see which of you lasts longer. We’re rooting for you, Paula. Visit

Empty Bowls soup tasting event returns By Matt Ingersoll

News from the local food scene

By Matt Ingersoll

• Smoothie Bus to expand: The Smoothie Bus, a Manchester-based smoothie delivery service launched earlier this year, is planning an expansion that will include two additional buses to serve the Nashua and Concord areas, co-owner Josh Philbrick confirmed. He and his wife Sonya have already purchased the buses and have plans to to hire drivers and smoothie makers for each. The goal is to have the buses designed over the winter and be ready to roll by the spring of 2019, he said. Since its launch, The Smoothie Bus has appeared at several local festivals, 5Ks, farmers markets and more, and is also available for deliveries at businesses across the Manchester area. Philbrick said among the bus’s last events of the 2018 season will be ones at Southern New Hampshire University on Friday, Oct. 12, and Friday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and on Saturday, Oct. 27, at Petersbrook Fields in Hooksett. Visit or call 785-1717. • Copper Jacket Cafe now open in Hooksett: The owners of Shooters Outpost (1158 Hooksett Road, Hooksett) announced the opening of the Copper Jacket Cafe on Sept. 28 in an adjoining space to the side of the building that is part of an expansion to also include a museum and additional space for the retail store. Co-owner Carey McLoud said the idea to open a cafe came from customers having to wait long periods of time at the store for background checks and other transactions, but the menu was created to attract non-customers of Shooters Outpost as well. “We wanted to stand out as something a little bit different to accommodate all 38 Looking for more food and drink fun?

Dozens of local restaurants and community organizations will participate in Empty Bowls, a soup tasting fundraiser that’s part of an international endeavor to combat hunger, on Sunday, Oct. 14, in Manchester. The annual event, returning for the 16th year, brings together nearly 20 restaurants providing samples of some of their tastiest soups to raise money for New Horizons for New Hampshire, a Manchester-based soup kitchen, food pantry and homeless shelter for adults that also operates Angie’s Shelter for Women. For $25, people choose their own ceramic soup bowl handmade and donated by the New Hampshire Potters Guild. Bowls are available for purchase either at the door or in advance online. A variety of local arts organizations such as Studio 550 and the New Hampshire Institute of Art are Potters Guild members and contribute to the bowl making in the several months leading up to the event. Last year’s tasting saw a record turnout of soup tasters, and this year’s is expected to grow even bigger, with the most participating restaurants in the event’s history, according to New Horizons for New Hampshire Donor Relations Manager Tara Hershberger. “We ask the restaurants to give us between five and six gallons and to do seasonal soups,” she said. “We try and make it so there is an opportunity for people to sample from a bunch of different varieties of soups.” Extra Touch Gourmet Cafe in Bedford, a newcomer to this year’s Empty Bowls tasting, will be serving samples of a spin-

ach and artichoke soup similar in taste to its dip, Hershberger said. Other flavors have included a Buffalo chicken soup, a coconut curry chicken soup, a clam chowder, a coconut curry, a creamy vegetable soup with pasta, and a chicken lemon rice soup. Hershberger said the final roster of soups always has multiple selections of vegetarian and gluten-free options as well. Child-sized bowls painted by children from the church and from New Horizons are available for $5 each. Pints to-go will also be sold for $5 during the last half hour of the event, according to Hershberger. New features to this year’s tasting include outdoor seating under tents and ingredients lists for each soup to be provided. Students from the Manchester School of Technology will also be selling their homemade cookies and providing ingredients for them during the event. At the end of the event, attendees are invited to keep the soup bowl they purchased as a symbolic reminder of all of the “empty bowls” across the country, according to Hershberger. “We have a lot of volunteer groups that work to make this event happen,” she said. 16th annual Empty Bowls When: Sunday, Oct. 14, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Where: Brookside Congregational Church, 2013 Elm St., Manchester Cost: $25 per tasting bowl for adults; $5 per tasting bowl for children.

If you want to experience the best of what local eateries have to offer, head to the 13th annual Taste of New Hampshire, returning to the Grappone Conference Center on Thursday, Oct. 18. Formerly known as the Taste of Concord, the event in recent years has welcomed the participation of restaurants and businesses in other neighboring cities and towns, making for an all-inclusive experience of tastings, cooking demonstrations, a silent auction, raffles and more. “It’s like a food lover’s fantasy,” said Lisa Clark, special events manager for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Hampshire, which organizes the event. “The restaurants provide samples of some of their signature dishes.” Attendees who pay their admission fee at the door have the ability to walk around and sample the offerings from each restaurant. The tastings include a mix of long-running restaurants in the Capital City and beyond, like The Barley House, Cimo’s South End Deli and Arnie’s Place, and new and recently established eateries like Chuck’s BARbershop in Concord and the Lakehouse Tavern out of Hopkinton, both of which just opened earlier this year. Some restaurants will be providing samples of appetizers on their regular menus while others may have desserts, or even a combination of a couple of things to taste, according to Clark. “It’s going to be a great [opportunity] for people to sample new things to them and try some restaurants they maybe haven’t tried before,” she said. “People don’t leave hungry, that’s for sure.” Local beer, wine and spirits purveyors such as New Hampshire Distributors, Horizon Beverage Group, M.S. Walk13th annual Taste of NH


When: Thursday, Oct. 18, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Where: Grappone Conference Center, 70 Constitution Ave., Concord Cost: $35 per person or $300 for 10 tickets Visit: Event is 21+ only. Advance tickets are available for purchase at the 99 Restaurant & Pub locations in Concord (60 D’Amante Drive) and Tilton (154 Laconia Road), as well as at Cimo’s South End Deli (250 South St., Concord) or at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Hampshire’s Concord location (55 Bradley St.). Tickets are also available at the door on the day of the event.

er and Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits will once again be providing a wide variety of craft beers and wines to sample during the event as well. Several cooking demonstrations are planned, including by the Colby Hill Inn in Henniker, New England’s Tap House Grille in Hooksett, The Birch on Elm, Fratello’s Italian Grille in Manchester, and chefs from the New Hampshire Food Bank. “We’ve placed more emphasis on the cooking demos among the restaurants this year,” Clark said, “so they will be

rotating throughout the event rather than on separate restaurants receiving more time.” The silent auction at this year’s event includes a wide variety of items donated by the participating restaurants and other local businesses. Items will include a gift basket of assorted wines, a gift certificate to Chuck’s BARbershop, a chef’s dinner package at Revival Kitchen & Bar, four tickets to a Boston Bruins game, a Taste of the Seacoast package that includes complimentary dining at several Seacoast-area restaurants and much more. Clark said New Hampshire Distributors is also planning a raffle and door prizes of its own. The proceeds from the Taste of New Hampshire benefit scholarships at each of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Hampshire’s 12 locations, assisting kids and their families to attend after school, summer camp and other educational programming. “Because we were starting to expand, we wanted to make sure the event itself represented our geographic locations with other restaurants,” she said, “and hopefully that will continue to grow.”

Entrees include linguini carbonara pasta with pancetta and cracked black pepper and seared chicken breast with garlic Parmesan asparagus.

We’re pairing up with

perishables Tasty food from fresh ingredients

Apples and squash Fall is an incredible time to eat fresh and local produce. The farmers markets are in full swing and it’s apple season! There is a plethora of incredible food to be had here in New Hampshire. This week, it was hard for me to pick just one perishable ingredient so instead, I’m sharing a recipe that utilizes a few things from the fall harvest: apples and squash. While you may be sad to say goodbye to the warm weather, cooler weather means I get to use my oven for roasting. Roasting is, by far, my favorite way to cook. I find roasted vegetables to be the tastiest and it gives me plenty of opportunity for one-pot meals. One-pot meals are key for me as the prep and the cleanup are so much easier. With three small children, ease is key. There are innumerable types of apples and squash from which to choose this time of year. My favorite apples for roasting are Cortland and they are easy to find almost anywhere. They also make a mean apple pie. In terms of squash, where do I begin? Delicata is great, and keeping the skin on Pork, Apple & Squash Bake 4 bone-in pork chops 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed 2 sweet potatoes, cubed (optional – leave out if going low-carb) 2-3 Cortland apples, cored, peeled and cubed 2 tablespoons coconut oil (heated slightly to make a liquid) 2 tablespoons brown sugar ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Join us for the month of October! adds an interesting texture that makes it unique. Butternut, buttercup and acorn are equally incredible, and all work so well in the oven. When it comes to fall squash, more is better! When roasted, squash tastes just as good as a potato yet contains fewer calories and carbs, if you’re watching your waistline. Here are a few tips for roasting squash this fall: Cutting squash into smaller pieces speeds up roasting time and makes it more likely they’ll develop that browned edge (which is my favorite). Roasting should occur at 400 to 425 degrees. Use a baking sheet if you want that browned edge. Line the pot with foil or parchment paper to make cleanup a breeze. Don’t forget the oil: Coconut and olive are my favorite. — Allison Willson Dudas Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with foil, making sure you use enough to raise the sides and create a slight border (easier cleanup). In a small bowl, combine oil with cinnamon and sugar, mixing well. Coat apples, squash and potato in mixture and spread onto sheet. Clear a space for the pork chops. Roast for about 20 minutes, flipping vegetables once (watching the pork chops carefully). Depending on the thickness of the pork chops, you may want to take them out before the vegetables.

It had been a while since I had visited Hermit Woods Winery in downtown Meredith. I think that the last time I was there they were getting ready to put in the deli, which is now up and running. They have also expanded their winemaking abilities and added new wines. My friend and I started out with a tour from Bob Manley, one of the owners. He talked about the winery’s beginnings, with the tasting room located in his former master bedroom in his home in Sanbornton. The winery has grown significantly since it was opened some years ago, and they not only upgraded their space to the current location in Meredith, but have also added new, large, stainless steel tanks. This allows for increased capacity and winemaking. We had the chance to try some Petite Blue straight out of the barrel, and while it still had a way to go, it was very good. After the tour, we tried some wine at the counter in the tasting room. I chose the following wines: 2014 Kiwi Melomel, 2015 Fall in Session, 2016 Lake House White, 2015 Red Scare, 2017 Petite Blue Reserve and 2017 Winnipesaukee Rosé. Many of these wines were new for me, and I really enjoyed them. Fall in Session is their Three Honey Wine blended with red currant wine to create a “session mead,” which is lower alcohol and has some slight carbonation. (They also make other session meads named after other seasons.) Red Scare is a “multiberry melomel,” made from blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and local honey. While that may sound like it would be pretty sweet, this wine is not. It is complex and dry, with pleasant fruit aromas and a nice, smooth finish. The Petite Blue Reserve is their Petite Blue wine that has been aged in French oak for three months. It is fuller-bodied, and has a longer and drier finish reminiscent of French Burgundies. While you may think this wine is made from grapes, it is actually made from low-bush blueberries. I really like both versions of this wine, and purchased a bottle to enjoy later.

it on Thanksgiving because the hint of cranberries would really complement the meal. After the wine tasting, we had lunch from the deli and sat out on the deck. The food was really good (I had a harvest salad with delicious caramel vinaigrette dressing and butternut squash soup with apples and bacon) and reasonably priced. It was hard to decide what to get because so many things on the menu sounded good. I love that some of the wineries in New Hampshire serve food, wine by the glass and wine flights, because it really adds to the experience. Because we drove from the Concord area, it was convenient to have lunch right there and then purchase some wine from the tasting room on our way out. I also joined their wine club and am looking forward to my first shipment this month.

Well this is cool. Tagged as a Louisiana-French fiddle band, this trio spews forth grungy, centuryold Acadian fiddle blues songs as well as some that stem from the cobwebbed halls of pre-accordion Creole-Celtic-Afro-French. That’s a lot to take in, but the upshot is that the band plays what we critics call “world music,” stuff that’s off the U.S.-pop-culture grid even if it’s antique American stuff really. Along with a few of their own tunes, you’ll find here some recently unearthed Cajun and Creole tunes, some adorned with samples; it’s quite unique. Singer/fiddler/leader Louis Michot was part of Grammy winners Lost Bayou Ramblers in the past, and he’s teamed up with a couple of drum-pad guys and Mark Bingham on electric guitar. Nope, there’s no accordion here, but keep in mind that some of these relics come from before the invention of that instrument; this isn’t meant to evoke memories of your drunken trip to New Orleans. No, it’s 100 times better: leadoff song “Two-Step de Ste Marie” is an instantly hypnotic, rhythmic exercise with toasty Elephant Man-style outbursts embedded in oddly modern techno drum beats. The even more lively “Grand Marais” sounds like Joe Walsh leading a primaltrance charge. You’ll love this, seriously. A — Eric W. Seager To get author

Hailing from the same area of Virginia as Pharrell, Timbaland and Missy Elliott, this genre-less wetwork collaboration is a genre-less affair whose most defining feature is singer Sunny’s thick slatherings of emotion over whatever they try. Reggaeton would seem to be part of the plan, as heard on this LP’s opening track, “Peace of Cake,” but not in any “dance up, drinkers!” sense; when Sunny sings “The beaches are empty,” you can really see it. Like a Sade from Hell, “Hadouken” launches into a bizarre but fascinating bossa nova shuffle in which Sunny tries lazy, mellow Dido on for size. “Remix to Signals” sounds like just that, a little diva-bling-pop, a little sunbathing vibe, and a lot — maybe too much — of fritzed noise and radio talk show/ TV randomness. Actually, I shouldn’t say that; it’s what I’d tell any band to try: If you’re going to add samples, go all the way. A+ — Eric W. Seager

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases • OK, I win, bingo, everybody has to drink! That’s right, yo, it’s an official Hannukwaanmas album from a bona fide rawk superstar, coming out before all you people have even set up your gross Halloween goblins in your front yard! Don’t you freakin’ hate that? Well I don’t, because it’s something to talk about in a post-good-music world. Eric Clapton’s Happy Xmas is on the way for Oct. 12, and there will be Christmas songs on it, old standards like “White Christmas” and whatnot, but he also includes a track called “Jingle Bells (In Memory of Avicii).” Avicii is the DJ who struggled with drugs and alcohol before he died by suicide. The internet is all ablaze with conspiracy theories and various stupid talk, because it’s the internet, like people are asking in annoying, whiny Urkel voices, “Ehhh, how did Clapton know Avicii? #FakeNews!” There is a two-part answer to that, of course: “It doesn’t matter, and shut up, internet, just this once.” • How about some new rock ’n’ roll music from Graham Parker? Most baby boomers know Parker as “Yeah, I’ve heard of him, but I couldn’t name one of his songs,” whilst millennials, always proud to appear clueless about things that don’t have any connection to Super Mario and Yoshi, know him as “Who?” OK, picture an imposter Jimmy Buffett trying to do ska-dub, and it sounds like your uncle doing karaoke in the shower — yeah, that’s Parker’s 1970s hit “Don’t Ask Me Questions.” His new LP is Cloud Symbols, and it features the song “Bathtub Gin,” a joke song that sounds like Randy Newman, who was relevant once. Can I stop talking about this yet? • Feels like I just talked about Elvis Costello, but actually the last time was in May of last year — funny how your brain tends to get confused about bands you don’t really care about. But did you know there’s a music-oriented kids’ show on Amazon Prime called Pete the Cat, and Elvis and his real-life jazz-singer wife, Diana Krall, play the kitty’s parents? That’s kind of cool, and Diana Krall is awesome, so I now have a positive attitude going into this new Elvis Costello & The Imposters LP, Look Now. The single that shows up in the YouTube list is a little ditty he likes to call “Unwanted Number,” a mid-tempo rocker that would be Warren Zevon-ish if it were a little more awesome. Not that it’s bad. It’s OK, like it’s well-written and stuff, even if the core melody is kind of dumb. It would have been a huge hit in 1921, because there were no electric guitar effects in 1921. • Unless all 11 million YouTube plays of Kurt Vile’s 2015 song “Pretty Pimpin” were clicked by bots, which I doubt, because it’s a pretty cool hit of Beck-rock (that goes on too long) (oh shut up, it’s completely awesome), he’s doing pretty OK. Bottle It In, his new LP, on the other hand, features the single “Backasswards,” which is just “Pretty Pimpin’” without the addictive Lynyrd Skynyrd ingredients and it goes on for nine minutes, which in this song’s case is an epic fail. Ah well. — Eric W. Seager

across climate, culture and nature; stories of emotional immigration; stories of people learning how to cross boundaries and rethink assumptions; and stories that help us to be cognizant of our freedoms and see how our family experiences travel across generations.” For the second year, the festival will be emceed by Peter Biello, host of New Hampshire Public Radio’s weekday show All Things Considered. Dr. Monica Bilson, Chair of the Creative Writing Department at NHIA, will also speak at the event. In addition to the story presentations, the festival will have a pop-up art exhibition based on the “Immigration” theme, featuring prints, photographs and drawings, as well as time-based audio and video pieces. Some of the story presentations will also have accompanying video, audio or images. Coats said the festival is an opportunity for people to make authentic, personal connections that are often hard to come by in the age of social media. “There are so many barriers today,” she said, “and I think [the festival] is a way to break down those divisions and share that person-to-person human contact, which is so important. It’s a chance for people to come together and be in the same space, both emotionally and physically.” “In this age of technology and multitasking, it’s incredibly therapeutic, both to tell your story, and to listen to someone’s story,” Dadian added. “I think the art of being quiet, of stopping and listening to someone, is not celebrated enough.”

About a dozen people will share their original stories during the third annual Storytelling Festival hosted by the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester on Saturday, Oct. 13. The call for story entries was open to both the NHIA community and the general public and attracted storytellers of all ages and backgrounds, with varying levels of storytelling experience. “I think the real impetus for this festival was to bridge the gap between the NHIA community and the outside community, to have an event where everyone could get together and learn from each other through storytelling and have a discussion,” said Lindsay Coats, who is co-coordinating the event. Every year, the Storytelling Festival has a theme that the story submissions must follow. This year’s theme, “Immigration,” is inspired by Manchester’s inaugural One Book One Manchester community reading program that launched this fall. The mission of the program is to have the whole city read a featured book simultaneously, then participate in pop-up book clubs, discussion groups, exhibitions, storytelling events and more hosted by city departments, educational institutions and businesses. The book, Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, is analogous to the global refugee crisis as it tells the story of a young couple, Saeed and Nadia, who seek refuge from the civil war that has overtaken their city by walking through a series of mystical doors that teleport people around the world. Sunny Dadian, who is coordinating the event with Coats, said the theme seemed to resonate with a lot of people who submitted stories, including people whom “you wouldn’t think of as immigrants.” “One of the great things about this theme is that it forces us to look at our family history, where we came from and how we got here, and recognize that we are all immigrants,” she said. “Our hope is that, by celebrating immigrants and family immigrant histories, we’ll remove the stigma and the negative connotation associated with immigrants, and help more people to not be afraid to share their stories.” Each storyteller will have five minutes to tell his or her story. The stories may be literal stories of immigration or may simply be inspired by the idea of immigration. They range from completely true, to true with some embellishment, to pure fiction. “[The storytellers have] a diverse range of experiences,” Coats added. “There will be family legends; stories of immigration

Put a New York millionaire with a collection of fine watches on a Greyhound bus bound for the South, and two things are guaranteed to happen. Hilarity will ensue and at some point the watches will go missing. But the predictable stops there in Gary Shteyngart’s delightful Lake Success, which is not so much a novel as it is a shish kabob of words, skewering everything that wanders in its path. It’s super smart and wicked funny, a roast of the nation and all its recent absurdities. Shteyngart’s Barry Cohen is a hedge-fund manager living large in a 4,000-square-foot luxury apartment in New York City, with his wife, an Indian-American “too ambitious to ever get fat,” and their toddler son, who has severe autism, which Barry can only refer to as “the diagnosis.” Barry’s $2.4 billion fund, which he named “This Side of Capital” in a nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald, has provided amply for his family, but it’s currently not doing so great because his penchant for pharmaceutical companies that gut the poor and sick backfired. In addition, he’s under investigation by the SEC, the honeymoon is long since over with his wife, and his son can only be calmed by a Cookie Monster song and brushing therapy. So Barry does what most morally bankrupt people would do in such a cavalcade of trouble: He flees. After a particularly vicious fight with his wife, he staggers to a Greyhound terminal and boards a bus, vaguely hoping to re-create a similar journey from his youth, when the bus took him to his then-girlfriend, Layla, who lived in Richmond. Now, like then, the point of the journey is Layla, Barry having decided that she is his True Love, the woman he should have married, the woman who will give him three perfect children who will stand side by side in his three-sink bathroom at night and adorably brush their teeth in unison. But Layla, it turns out, is no longer in Richmond, so Barry has to continue his travels deep in the South and out West, with an ever-shrinking wad of money, having pitched both his phone and his black American Express card, and outrun the personal assistant who was, for a while, in pursuit. As Barry’s bus takes him from Richmond to Atlanta, to Jackson, Mississippi, and to El Paso and beyond, he encounters a treasure trove of memorable characters, from the one-eyed Mexican who fell asleep on his shoulder, to the drug dealer who

gifted him with a not-unsubstantial amount of crack, to the black woman with blond hair who entranced everyone on the bus, including Barry. Meanwhile, a his-and-hers narrative lets us see what’s happening back in New York, where Seema Cohen, having heard nothing from her husband in months, has begun an unfulfilling affair with a writer who lives 20 stories below, a less-achieving fellow Barry had dismissed as a nobody because he has a lackluster author ranking on Amazon and fewer than a thousand followers on Twitter. Seema struggles not just with her marriage and the self she abandoned to become a hedge-fund wife, but also with parenting her increasingly out-of-control son, who requires a full-time nanny in addition to his mother’s care. The child’s condition supplies the emotional heart of the story. And what of Layla? Conveniently divorced, she is a college professor raising a neurologically typical son in Texas, which adds to Barry’s obsession with finding her and claiming the perfect family he believes he deserves. This is a book with a destination, but it’s the journey that’s the pleasure. Shteyngart writes with the authority of someone who has spent a lot of time of buses, of someone intimately familiar with smelly rows of people “snoring like they had entire planets up their noses.” In writing the book, Shteyngart spent time both on buses and with hedge-fund managers. On the bus, “People talked about where they had gone to prison the way people on the Acela talked about where they had gone to law school,” but that’s not to say all the people traveling on “The Hound” are morally inferior to their financial betters. In fact, part of the pleasure of Lake Success is how the characters are never quite what you expect; they evolve in surprising ways. Lake Success is a real place, a New York village near Queens, where Barry grew up motherless, the son of a pool cleaner, and turned into a man who would one day dream of creating trading cards featuring Wall Street traders to inspire impoverished black children. Or, alternately, a foundation to help urban youth buy good watches and learn to care for them. The genius of Shteyngart is that his seismically clueless and wildly offensive protagonist is lovable from Page 1, when he staggers into the bus station at 3:20 a.m., “a clean slice above his left brow where the nanny’s fingernail had gouged him and, from his wife, a teardrop scratch below his eye.” Whatever he’s searching for, whatever he gets, we sincerely hope it’s grand.

A Star Is Born (R)

A troubled rock-country singer is besotted with a young singer-songwriter just finding her voice in A Star Is Born, a solid showcase for the performances of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

Jackson Maine (Cooper) drinks and chomps pills in part to deal with the constant disorienting tone and pain of a hearing problem and, we suspect, in part to deal with the burdens of fame and other demons. When he runs out of liquor after a show, he stops by the nearest bar, where he sees Ally (Lady Gaga), a local waitress who enchants with her rendering of “La Vie en Rose.” Sitting with Ally’s buddy Ramon (Anthony Ramos) during her performance, Jackson is instantly enthralled by her. After the show, they hang out, eventually winding up in a parking lot where she sings him a bit of a song she’s been working on. After the evening is over, she returns to her house, full of her dad (Andrew Dice Clay) and his fellow chauffeur friends. We get the sense that her life has always involved some degree of cleaning up after men, which is perhaps why she isn’t frightened off by Jackson, even after she sees him essentially pass out from drink and pills a day later. Of course, before he did that, he invited her onstage during one of his concerts to sing her song with him.


A Star Is Born

For her part, she is as dazzled by this new opportunity to perform in public, what she realizes is her shot, as she is by Jackson himself, whom she seems to genuinely unconditionally adore. Ally joins the tour and, after several weeks of performances, a man from a record company, Rez (Rafi Gavron), shows up to offer her her own deal. Jackson is both genuinely proud of Ally and obviously jealous of her position as a person on the cusp of her career instead of potentially being at the end of it. At times, he helps her do great work, helping her

Is this the most skillfully shot, acted or written movie I’ve ever seen? As David Zayas (playing the father) says, “in two languages, no y no.” But Shine does not mess around when it comes to the dancing, which is a delight. If, like me, you hear “salsa dance competition to save the studio” and think “yay!” this movie delivers on why you’re here, cornball speeches and lots of fun dancing. C+ (Released Oct. 5.

record her album, for example, but he also undermines her, particularly when at one point he cruelly goes after her insecurities. This is going to sound odd but I had a hard time concentrating on the overall movie because I was so focused on the performances by Cooper and Lady Gaga and by the movie’s music. It’s no surprise that Lady Gaga can produce and sing an appealing collection of songs, whether it’s the character’s singer-songwriter-y initial stuff or the more produced pop she creates with Rez. Even the songs that are less representative of the Ally we see in the beginning are enjoyable. Also,

and I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, when she sings her “poppier” songs, “Ally” looks and performs more like Lady Gaga as I’ve seen her in various live performances over the years. In addition to this very appealing and engrossing musical performance, Lady Gaga gives a really top-notch, naturalistic acting performance. She does so much with her face and eyes and body posture, especially in the beginning when she is joyful but stunned by Jackson’s sudden presence in her life. The only thing that feels “movie” here is when we’re asked to believe that Ally’s looks have held her back — her big nose, specifically — when the movie is constantly shooting her for maximum gorgeousness. But while the “I’m so funny-looking” feels fake, the insecurity (and how that acts on her response to the machine of fame) feels genuine. Likewise, Cooper (who also directed the movie and co-wrote the screenplay) gives a very engrossing performance. His Jack could have been Behind the Music-personified but instead he feels like a person with layers, with fears, with a vast reserve of narcissism but with a genuine love of and awe for Ally. We can feel his weariness and his mix of optimism and hopelessness. I think a sign of a good performance is when you could watch the character just

This is a good story not just of one woman’s rise but of a creative professional’s career ebbs and flows and how she dealt with the changes. Though the peak of her fame was nearly 40 years ago, the movie presents her as a recognizably modern kind of comedian and one whose legacy you can directly trace to the current era.

I feel like I am exactly the intended audience for this extremely talky movie that rests heavily on nostalgia for these two actors. Reeves and Ryder are reluctant attendees of a wedding in central California wine country who manage to immediately annoy each other and yet are each other’s most obvious companion for the weekend. This movie is aggres-

sively talky, so much so that I actually decided to give up about a half hour in but then decided, hey, I already paid for the rental and went back to finish the last hour. It doesn’t get better, per se, but it sort of mellows into something that ultimately I found kind of cozily enjoyable without actually being good: a microwave Ramen of romantic comedies. C (Released Aug. 2. Available on VOD.) Damsel (R) Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska. Call it a case of bad timing: when I saw Damsel, I just couldn’t find the Old Westset story of a clueless stalker attempting to find the object of his affection charming and hilarious (especially when you throw in the menacing of that same woman by her brother-in-law and the general period misogyny). But I’ll give the movie points for its central performanc47

talk about whatever, whether connected to a movie’s story or not, and I feel like I could do that, with delight, for both Lady Gaga and Cooper. A Star Is Born also has some very solid supporting performances. I’m sure Sam Elliott is already on the Oscar short list, as may be Andrew Dice Clay, specifically for one scene near the end of the movie. Dave Chappelle also shows up do do what feels a bit like a riff on Dave Chappelle. A Star Is Born is odd in that I was left with a sense of having seen many good things but wanting to see the movie again before deciding if it was great. Perhaps this is the La La Land effect: I’ve been hearing for months that this movie will be amazing and so somehow, leaving thinking that it was merely very good made me feel like I missed something. So perhaps I have to give it another shot before Oscar season to decide exactly where it sits on my list of movies for the year. But even now, I strongly suspect it will be on my top 20, maybe even top 10 list. A Star Is Born is a thoroughly enjoyable two-plus hours of movie. ARated R for language throughout some sexuality/nudity and substance abuse, according to the MPAA. Directed by Bradley Cooper with a screenplay by Eric Roth and Bradley Cooper & Will Fetters, A Star Is Born is two hours and 15 minutes long and is distributed by Warner Bros.

Venom (PG-13)

An out-of-work reporter is infected by an alien blob that gives him superpowers in Venom, a so-so but not terrible movie based on the comic book character.

Marvel comic character, to be specific, but not part of the MCU, as far as I can tell based on the various Wikipedia articles about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the “adjunct” Sony Marvel universe (of which I think this is a part). Which means what, you ask? I think the gist is that you don’t have to do the math trying to figure out how this fits into the pre- and post-Thanos-Snap timeline. Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is an old-school investigative reporter, the kind that isn’t afraid to be aggressive to the point of unlikable in trying to uncover civic malfeasance. And, in the great tradition of those reporters (especially as portrayed in TV and movies), he doesn’t seem to feel all that bad about selling out the, say, boss who gives him cover or the fiancee, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams), with whom he lives. When he goes against his boss’s orders to do a puff piece on nutso billionaire Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) — and uses information stole from Anne to confront Carlton — he loses his job, his apartment and his fiancee in one swoop. Six months later, unable to find a job as a reporter, Eddie is barely scraping by, financially and emotionally, when scientist 48



es. Pattinson, who I know mostly for roles in Twilight and Twilight-y movies, has more to him than expected. David Zellner, playing a man searching for a new life but finding only more despair, does solid work that I probably would find tragicomic in a different movie. And Wasikowska continues to bring so much to her performances, making a fully fleshed person out of a type. C (Release June 22. Available on VOD.)

songs that don’t have much stylings of director Eli Roth staying power and anima- this is really the only approtion that is nice enough. B priate option. B-

Night School (PG-13) Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish. Haddish is sadly not nearly as core to this movie as advertising suggests. Hart’s character, who needs his GED and returns to school after nearly two decades, is at the focus in this occasionally fun but frequently just “meh” comedy that doesn’t do enough with its fairly talented cast and often compelling ideas about class and James education. C

Reviewlets Smallfoot (PG) Channing Tatum, Corden. There is a good idea and a solid cast in this animated movie about a village of yetis whose power structure claims there are no such thing as “smallfoot” creatures even after one of them sees a human. The movie never quite stretches beyond “fine” though, with OK

The House with a Clock in Its Walls (PG) Jack Black, Cate Blanchett. Set in the 1950s, this movie about an orphaned boy who comes to live with a magicpracticing uncle never quite comes to life. But I guess if you’re dying to introduce your tween to the movie

* A Simple Favor (R) Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick. Director Paul Feig has all kinds of fun with this smart but not heavy movie that blends suspense, comedy and a kind of suburban noir. Also, somebody finally figured out the perfect role for Blake Lively. I doubt anybody will be saying “Oscar” and “Kendrick” in the same sentence for this movie but let me suggest she is a strong Golden Globe candidate for the way she makes her chipper mommy blogger (delightfully named Stephanie Smothers) someone just tightly wound enough to be clearly askew without having an obvious tell. As predicted in my review, I like this movie even more now (maybe up to an A-) than I did when I gave it a B+.

Dr. Dora Skirth (Jenny Slate) comes looking for him. One of the scientists at Drake’s pharmaceutical and space discovery company (OK, sure!), Skirth has information about experiments being run at the labs. As Eddie had attempted to discuss with Drake, rumors have long swirled that people (poor, homeless or otherwise vulnerable) are tricked into “volunteering” for pharmaceutical trials and are tossed in the landfill when the experiments end in their deaths. Now, Drake is running the same sort of experiments, only with symbiotes brought back by Drake’s private astronauts from outer space. Drake’s theory/plan is to find a way to join the humans and symbiotes (which can’t survive on Earth by themselves) so that humanity can survive on whatever planet the symbiotes come from. So far, however, the symbiotes (four came back, three were recovered after the space ship crashed) just kill the hosts, eating them from the inside. But when Skirth sneaks Eddie into the lab, he absorbs one of the symbiotes and he and it learn to get along. He feeds the symbiote the odd bad guy and the symbiote doesn’t eat his liver. And, to Eddie’s surprise, when threatened, Venom, as the symbiote calls itself, a Hulk-in-a-black-wetsuit like figure, can take control and fight off a gaggle of henchmen or, when needed, bite the head off a guy. My Venom knowledge is exactly Spider-Man 3 deep, so not very, and yet I feel like Tom Hardy is perfectly cast. If not for some canon version of Venom, definitely for this Venom. He is a believable tough guy, someone who could and would, say, headbutt a hired goon without the backup of any additional superpowers, but also something of a shlub who doesn’t macho out reflexively. He also makes the goofier side of both characters — both the self-destructive Eddie and the mischievous quality he gives Venom — work.

And Hardy is what I was watching when watching this movie. I didn’t hate other aspects —Ahmed’s nutso tech guy (“nutso tech guy” has become a fun stock villain of late); Williams as, yes, exasperated girlfriend but with just enough of a weird edge that it isn’t just a Pepper Potts knockoff; Jenny Slate as, well, the Jenny Slate character. But it’s Hardy that made the movie more enjoyable than not for me — and it was more enjoyable than not. I’m not sure what I was expecting for this — nothing, I guess, knowing very little about the character. So go in expecting nothing, is my advice, and this movie succeeds by hitting a slightly higher mark. I happened to see a review blurb — from one of many negative reviews I’ve attempted to not read beyond the headline — that complained about this movie’s action scenes. Thinking back, while I know there were action scenes, very few of them have any staying power. There were two that stick out because, amid all the unkillable thing versus unkillable thing, a regular guy confronted a regular guy with not a superpower between them. These scenes were notable for the physicality of the fights. Hardy is able to make you believe that he can punch a dude and also take a punch, feeling it but continuing to fight. Can I truly recommend a movie that is entertaining, in so much as it is, only if you don’t particularly care about it and don’t expect anything from it? Venom isn’t something I’d go out of my way to see but if you’re in the theater anyway, you could do worse. C+ Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for language. Directed by Ruben Fleischer with a screenplay by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, Venom is an hour and 52 minutes long and distributed by Columbia Pictures.

Cream progeny carry on the music By Michael Witthaus

Though Cream was together only briefly, from mid-1966 to late 1968, the band’s influence endures. The shadow of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker’s supergroup looms over any power trio that came after — and, for that matter, anyone playing psychedelic blues rock. Iconic seems too small a word to describe their legacy. That’s especially true for Malcolm Bruce, son of Cream’s late bassist. Born into music, Malcolm is a multiinstrumentalist and composer who’s comfortable across genres. He’s made children’s records, rocked with Black Sabbath’s Bill Ward, played on a Little Richard session in Nashville and even written an opera. But his father’s music is never far away. In 2012, Bruce and Kofi Baker (son of Ginger) performed as Sons of Cream with guitarist Godfrey Townsend. Last year, a group with Clapton’s nephew Will Johns on guitar toured New Zealand and Australia. That went so well, they decided to travel to American to relive the band’s heyday. The Music of Cream – 50th Anniversary Tour stops in Concord on Oct. 13. In a recent phone interview, Malcolm Bruce talked about playing “Sunshine of Your Love” and “Crossroads” for a new generation of fans. “It’s incredible for me to look back at what my dad achieved,” he said. “It’s such great music, and it’s fun to play.” For a musician trying to make his own way in the world, returning to his dad’s legacy can be problematic, Bruce said, but it’s a means to an end. “It’s been an interesting journey; obviously, my father had a hugely successful career and I have been a little bit under the shackles of that,” he said. “But I’ve decided I’m going to embrace it as a way to get more exposure ... so that down the line, my music and my own writing can get out there.” Bruce always knew he would be a musician. It’s something he couldn’t have stopped even if he’d wanted to. “It was a driving force in our household and my relationship with my father was based completely on music. … I think inevitable is the right word,” he said. The two performed together frequently throughout his life; Jack Bruce died from cancer in 2006.

One thing Bruce is definitely enjoying about the current tour is how it mirrors the spontaneity of the original group. Back in the day, each Cream concert was different, infused with elements of jazz, rock, blues and pop. Things really opened up after the group first toured the United States and encountered audiences that welcomed experimentation, like the lengthy drum solo on Baker’s tour de force “Toad.” “They wound up on the West Coast at the moment in the hippie time where everyone was saying ‘just play, just play’ — and they did, and stretched everything out,” Malcolm said, adding the improvisational element appeals to him as a performer. “For me that is the most exciting thing about it, to just actually play and see what happens,” he said. “It’s very much jazz that’s epic in a way. … You can go far out, but it’s still within the popular idiom so that people don’t feel confused or alienated by it, whereas jazz is perhaps a little more for specialists. I think the music Cream created is at the core blues, which is at the heart of all good stuff.” Cream helped transition the British Invasion into what could be called the Great Experimentation. The first step toward its formation was Clapton leaving the Yardbirds, dissatisfied with the pop sound of “For Your Love,” that band’s

first hit single. Cream charted a new direction in rock, soon to be followed by Jimi Hendrix, forever changing music. Bruce is philosophical about what happened. “The small window of time when Cream emerged was a kind of freedom,” he said. “There hasn’t really been a band now that matches up [with] real musicianship that’s just allowing some kind of flow to happen without an agenda necessarily. I find that fascinating sociologically, how we’re controlled and conditioned in terms of our consciousness. Everything becomes so codified. You find incredible guitarists who can’t write a song.” There’s not much chance of a new musical revolution in today’s rock, Bruce said. “I was listening to a woman in New York who wrote an opera; it sounded almost like Radiohead,” he said. “She’s standing outside of genres; that really impressed me. I’d like to see that in pop music, but economic factors prevent the genre’s evolution.” The Music of Cream – 50th Anniversary Tour When: Saturday, Oct. 13, 7:30 p.m. Where: Capitol Center for the Arts, 44 S.

Bold moves

Three cheeky raccoons jolted a Toronto, Ontario, Canada, woman awake late on Sept. 18 when they broke into her kitchen. Jenny Serwylo heard noises coming from her kitchen and approached the critters with a broom, which scared away two out of the three. But a third wouldn’t budge, barricaded behind her toaster oven and munching on a package of English muffins. “He was like, ‘I’m eating, get out of here,’” Serwylo told the Toronto Star. She tried calling authorities but couldn’t get any help, and her contest of wills with the raccoon lasted for more than a half-hour. “I was growling at him and hissing at him,” she said. As she pointed the broom handle at the animal, it would grab the end and “yank it really hard.” Finally, having consumed all the bread in the kitchen, the raccoon calmly went out the window, which Serwylo locked behind it. Toronto Animal Services spokesperson Bruce Hawkins told the Star that such encounters are unusual, but you be the judge: The city has created a guide for residents about how to deal with raccoon intrusions.

Gender reveal events, in which expectant parents creatively announce the sex of their unborn children, are taking on increasingly more ridiculous and, in some cases, dangerous proportions. To wit: Border Patrol Agent Dennis Dickey, 37, pleaded guilty on Sept. 28 to accidentally starting the April 2017 Sawmill Fire, which burned 47,000 acres in and around Madera Canyon in Arizona, prompting evacuations and closing highways, according to the Arizona Daily Star. It all started when Dickey and his pregnant wife hosted a gender reveal party at which he shot a target containing Tannerite, an explosive substance, and colored powder signifying the child’s gender. When the target exploded, it caught nearby brush on fire, and Dickey immediately reported the wildfire and admitted he had started it. Dickey will pay $220,000 in restitution, and he is expected to keep his job.


Things got tense for passengers on a GoAir flight from New Delhi to Patna, India, on Sept. 22 when a first-time flyer mistook an emergency exit door for the restroom. Travel + Leisure magazine reported that fellow passengers asked the man, in his 20s, what he was doing, to which he replied that he “needed to use the washroom urgently” and returned to tugging at the door. Airport official Mohammad Sanowar Khan explained: “Pandemonium prevailed ... and he was

restrained. ... He said that the confusion happened because he had boarded a flight for the first time in his life.” The unnamed traveler was questioned at the Patna airport.

Is that a problem?

The Wagner Funeral Home in Jordan, Minnesota, made news on Sept. 26 when a judge released the details of a ruling against the mortuary for, among other violations, storing jarred applesauce in the same room where embalming takes place. Joseph Wagner, who runs the funeral home, was just helping out his brother, who owns nearby Wagner Bros. Orchard and needed some extra storage space, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. But the Minnesota Department of Health took issue with the jars being stored adjacent to a hazardous waste container, where blood and other waste from the embalming process are disposed of, and under an emergency shower and blocking an emergency eyewash station. Wagner was ordered to correct the violations and pay a $5,000 penalty.

What’s in a name?

• In the remote town of Yungar, Peru, two candidates for mayor with remarkable names are duking it out: Local politician Hitler Alba Sanchez, who served as mayor from 2011 to 2014, has been challenged by Lennin Vladimir Rodriguez Valverde. Sanchez told The Independent that his parents had been unaware of the Nazi connection to his name when he was

born, but even after realizing its origins, his father liked it because it “sounded foreign.” Peruvians are known for choosing foreign-sounding first names for their children: Last year, Peru’s junior football team featured a player named Osama Vinladen. • Election season brings out the funny name stories: In Belgium, 26-year-old Luc Anus is running for a council seat in the city of Lobbes. But when he tried to incorporate social media into his campaign strategy, he hit a snag: Facebook wouldn’t allow him to use his last name. The candidate didn’t miss a beat, though: He changed his online name to Luc Anu. Metro News reported that there are 49 people in Belgium with the last name Anus.


An employee at the Manassas, Virginia, Giant supermarket had a memorable day at work on Sept. 15 when he spotted Michael Dwayne Johnson, 27, in the produce aisle. As the employee watched, Metro News reported, Johnson pulled down his pants, picked up a piece of produce and rubbed it on his buttocks. Then he replaced the produce on the display and pulled his pants back up. Manassas Police charged Johnson with indecent exposure and destruction of property after the store was forced to destroy several pallets of fruit. Police did not release a motive. Visit
