The flag at the post office was at halfstaff earlier this week and so were all the others in our town. At several other places I stopped that day I noticed quite a few people asking why that was so. When the explanation was given — the tragic murders at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh — the response often was “Oh! That’s why.” That reaction, perhaps not as uncommon as one might hope, is symptomatic of a deeper uncertainty in these uncertain national times. Symbols have power only when they are understood. The United States flag is our most prominent and important national symbol. It stands for our country, our values, our heritage and our hopes. But it carries countless additional significances for Americans depending on their own experience and understanding of this country. To those who serve or have served in the military, it has a whole set of meanings. The same is true for those in official positions, elected office or service abroad. And for those traveling or living abroad, it is a welcome beacon. At times, however, it has also served as the banner of only one understanding of our country and its values, and has been used to divide one constituency from another. Its display — whether on political ads, lapel pins or banners — can invite and include or can repel and exclude. Sadly, we seem to lack a truly unifying symbol of our common citizenship these days. Our conversations, the media, and our public forums are full of laments over polarization, tribalism, and lack of civility. We either isolate or cause others to be isolated. And yet, at times of tragedy, whether caused by human violence or natural disaster, we come together to grieve and comfort one another. For such brief moments, we are one in our humanity. Tragedies, by their very power and impact, throw us back on ourselves and force us to confront reality. The reality of separation, of fierce opposition, of intolerance, of lack of regard for and respect of one another, these are starkly revealed in such horrors. As I contemplated our flag at halfstaff, there came to mind the words of John Donne: “Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”

ACA enrollment

The New Hampshire Insurance Department announced that enrollment for the individual Health Insurance Marketplace is now open and will run through Saturday, Dec. 15. The department estimates that approximately 54,000 state residents will purchase health insurance coverage for 2019 in the individual market. Three insurance companies will offer individual plans on the New Hampshire Marketplace next year: Anthem, Ambetter from NH Healthy Families, and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. Residents must enroll by Dec. 15 for their coverage to begin on Jan. 1. Enrollment outside of this open enrollment period is only available 60 days following a qualifying life event. Depending on their income level, individuals who sign up during the open enrollment period may qualify for financial assistance for paying premiums and/or out-of-pocket costs for a health insurance plan bought through the Marketplace, or for nocost or low-cost coverage under the New Hampshire Granite Advantage Program. For more information, visit or insurance.

Campaign donations

Granite State Progress, a political advocacy organization in Concord, filed an election law complaint accusing the Friends of Chris Sununu committee of accepting $18,250 in illegal partnership donations. The group cited RSA 664:4, II, which prohibits political contributions from “any partnership as such or by any partner acting in behalf of such partnership.” State law defines a partnership as “an association of 2 or more persons to

carry on as co-owners a business for profit and includes, for all purposes of the laws of this state, a registered limited liability partnership.” Two finance reports released by the committee in 2017 indicate that the campaign received $7,000 from Gexa Energy; $4,250 from Nixon Peabody; and $7,000 from Keegan Werlin. The AP reported that Paul Collins, Sununu’s campaign manager, said the contributions are legal and were included in public reports released over a year ago.

Mental health plan

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services will publish its draft of the state’s new 10-Year Mental Health Plan on its website on Monday, Nov. 13, according to a news release. The department wrote that the plan is intended to be “responsive to the needs of people who receive mental health services and supports. … the department is taking additional time to ensure the final plan reflects all of the comments we’ve received from advocates, policymakers, and most importantly, the individuals and families who depend on the state’s mental health system.” A three-week public comment period will be open once the draft is online, followed by a final public input session on Monday, Dec. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. in Concord. As of press time, the department said the specific location “will be announced shortly.” Visit

Marijuana report

The Commission to Study the Legalization, Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana released its final report for consideration by New Hampshire lawmakers. According

to the report, the commission was formed in 2017 as a response to the “accelerating nationwide debate about legalization of marijuana/ cannabis at the state level.” The committee met 26 times to draft the report, which includes recommendations for how the state might approach legalizing recreational marijuana. The report doesn’t include a “formal up or down vote” on whether or not recreational marijuana should be legalized. Among its recommendations, the commission suggested using the term “cannabis” instead of the “slang term” marijuana, legal use be restricted to individuals age 21 and older, home growing be limited to six plants per individual and that the state create a regulatory “Cannabis Commission” with a full-time executive director and three part-time members. The report also includes cautions and concerns about legalization and calls for funding to conduct research on health, driving while impaired, workplace safety, crime rates, usage rates, school performance and impacts on quality of life and the “NH state brand.”

The AP reported that the industrial chemical PFAS was found to have contaminated groundwater beneath the New Hampshire Fire Academy training ground in Concord. These chemicals are common in certain kinds of firefighting foam, which has been used during roughly 175 training courses at the site since 1994. According to the AP, the New Hampshire Department of Safety is hiring an engineering firm to conduct further tests and reported that there’s no known threat to drinking water. The Manchester Police Department announced a pending investigation into several incidents of graffiti during the last weekend of October, including reports of two swastikas.

Last week, a legislative study commission released a report about the state’s school bus driver shortage. The commission found that the average bus driver in the state is unemployed for six and a half weeks during the summer months. Drivers’ average unemployment compensation is $175 per week, compared to the statewide weekly average of $333. According to the report, it takes about two months to fully hire a new driver, due to training, licensing and background check issues.

The Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services is starting to map out the state’s next four-year State Plan on Aging and will be hosting a series of public listening sessions through December to better gauge the needs of older residents. Since the Older Americans Act passed in 1965, each state has been required to create a plan outlining how it will spend federal funding on programs to address aging. According to the U.S. Administration for Community Living, New Hampshire is slated to receive a little over $6.5 million in federal funds under the act in Fiscal Year 2018. Wendi Aultman, chief of the New Hampshire Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services, said these federal dollars are meant to help provide social support services for older adults. This includes adult day care, homemaking services, home-delivered and congregate meals, legal and consultation services, family caregiver support, adult protective services and health promotion and prevention programs. “The bureau … is designated in New Hampshire as the state agency on aging, and with that role, we are the administrator of all OAA funds and programs,” Aultman said. “As a result of that, we need to have a state plan that outlines how we plan to deliver those services.”

Power to the people


The current State Plan on Aging will run through Sept. 30, 2019, though Aultman said the bureau is aiming to complete a draft of the next four-year plan by late spring or early summer next year. To help develop the plan, the bureau scheduled a series of 13 public listening sessions to engage with older Granite Staters in their local communities. “It was really important to us to make sure we were going to every county … to make sure we were hitting the majority of local-level input,” Aultman said. “Local-level discussions … help with making sure [residents’] concerns get communicated to community leaders.” Aultman said more than 50 people attended the bureau’s first session in Berlin in late October. The group discussed issues like isolation, the benefit of local assistance programs and the accessibility of public buildings. These concerns echo common challenges older people face in more rural communities. “In Manchester, you have at least one form of public transportation … [and] Uber and cabs,” said Douglas McNutt, associate state director for advocacy at AARP New Hampshire. McNutt said residents also focused on “perennial concerns” like health care that affect the entire state. He added that finding enough caregivers for older residents is a particularly significant challenge facing the state. The New

Hampshire Department of Employment Security reports there are currently 1,309 openings for registered nurses in New Hampshire. Through 2026, the department estimates that there will be 906 annual openings for RNs and 1,169 annual openings for nursing assistants. “We are looking at what solutions might help with this crisis … in terms of not [having] enough of a workforce to provide growing needs for services,” Aultman said.

Advanced planning

With these listening sessions, Aultman said, the bureau is also hoping to put conversations about aging on the radars of younger people. Aultman said this is relevant to adults not only planning to accommodate the needs of their parents, but also planning for their own needs as they grow older themselves. “I represent the median age in the state, which is 43. … In 10 years, what might aging in place look like for my family, and how might it impact my ability to care for them?” Aultman said. “That’s something people my age need to be thinking about.” That’s part of the philosophy behind AARP’s Age-Friendly Communities program. McNutt said the organization provides cities and towns with resources and guidelines on improving their housing, infrastructure, transportation and social services. Goffstown and Portsmouth were the first New Hampshire communities to commit to the program, followed by Albany, Bartlett, Conway, Dover, Eaton, Freedom, Jackson, Londonderry and Madison. While the program was designed with older individuals in mind, McNutt said millennials and young families also look for things like walkable communities and multi-modal transportation. “It kind of goes back to the whole argument for curb cuts. … [They’re] not just for wheelchairs and walkers, but also for baby carriages,” McNutt said. “It’s really productive for local businesses as well to improve access.” Find the State Plan on Aging Survey at Upcoming listening sessions Nashua: Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Nashua Senior Center (70 Temple St., Nashua) Derry: Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Marion Gerrish Community Center (39W.

Seamless transition


State schools expand scholarship program By Scott Murphy

The University System of New Hampshire is aiming to address workforce needs and college affordability by expanding its Granite Guarantee program. As of December 2018, New Hampshire graduates from the Community College System of New Hampshire will receive free tuition if they transfer directly to a state university and are Pell Grant eligible. The University of New Hampshire first launched the Granite Guarantee program in 2017, when it announced it would begin waiving tuition for full-time, first-year New Hampshire students receiving federal Pell Grants. Funding for the program comes from private donations and UNH fundraising efforts. Students who fit the criteria are automatically enrolled in the program for all four years and can still receive other scholarships. UNH reported that since 2017 the program has helped 800 first-year students studying on the Durham and Manchester campuses. This past January, both Keene State College and Plymouth State University announced they would begin offering the program during the 20182019 school year. “UNH has a number of pathway and articulation agreements in place with the Community College System [of New Hampshire],” said Erika Mantz, executive director of media relations at UNH. “Expansion of the Granite Guarantee program allows us to continue our efforts to remove financial barriers to higher education and encourage students to stay on track to complete a bachelor’s degree in four years.”

Partnering on pathways

The state’s two largest higher ed agencies are familiar partners when it comes to student initiatives. Todd Leach, chancellor of the University System of New Hampshire, said the two systems have worked to create a “seamless pathway” for transfer students over the past few years. That includes a dual admission program that allows students to enroll in both a state community college and university at the same time, with their associate’s degree credits counting toward their bachelor’s degree. With the Granite Guarantee program, the goal was to bolster the appeal and affordability of the state’s higher ed options. Leach said the state exports about 60 percent of its high school graduates who go on pursue a four-year college degree. That adds up to a significant loss in potential workers, as Leach added that about 68 percent of state university graduates end up staying and working in New Hampshire. “Given the workforce needs we have in this state, it’s important to do something to keep

more of those students here,” said Leach. “For some of those students who are trying to make the choice between leaving the state and staying, we’re hoping this is enough of an incentive to keep students here and within our university system.”

Rural connections

In particular, the program is aimed at supporting students from lower-income backgrounds and rural areas, as well as first-generation students, those who are the first member of their family to attend college. Ross Gittell, chancellor of the Community College System of New Hampshire, said that 93 percent of community college students are New Hampshire residents. Depending on the school, anywhere from a quarter to half of the system’s enrollees are first-generation students, many of whom are unable to leave their home communities to attend a state school. “We have colleges in Claremont and Berlin, for example, where students haven’t been traditionally going on to UNH because of barriers of cost,” said Gittell. “It’s overwhelming for families to consider.” Part of those financial constraints are rooted in many students’ need to work while going to school. Gittell said community colleges allow students to retain their jobs locally and continue supporting themselves and their families. While the Granite Guarantee only covers tuition and not housing or other costs, Gittell said that coupling those savings with two years at a community college makes attending a state university much more affordable. “[Granite Guarantee] has a significant impact to access to a four-year bachelor’s degree, by having a pathway that reflects their needs to stay in their communities longer and be able to keep their family responsibilities,” said Gittell. “If you come from a tight-knit, small rural community, or a neighborhood in Manchester where you haven’t been exposed to as many things outside your community … having those first two years [at home] is beneficial.”

How does it feel to be named Teacher of the Year? I was a little shocked at first, because we all feel like we can do better. … But it was an honor to even be nominated. We met last spring with all the nominees in Concord, and we presented our philosophy of education, projects we’d done and student work. … They narrowed it down to eight, and for those eight, they did site visits. For me here at Belmont, we arranged for different groups to meet with the committee. There were some parents, students, colleagues, and then they met with me. I did a lesson in class on math at the time — how to calculate tax on meals in New Hampshire. They narrowed it down to five, then we wrote essays over the summer and delivered a 20-minute speech. … When they announced it in October, it felt great, and kind of surreal, actually. I’ve taught for 19 years … and it made me reflect and say, “Wow, I guess I’m doing a good job.”

lot of stuff kids are going through that they just weren’t as much [in the past]. Dealing with trauma and what that trauma looks like in different households. How do we help kids going through Keith Noyes these traumatic events? … When they come to us, they need to trust us, feel safe with us and feel comfortable approaching us about hard times in their lives. … The opioid crisis affects schools big-time. I’m hoping to continue talking to lawmakers to get ideas on how we can help the big picture here.

What are some of the biggest strengths and weaknesses of how schools teach students nowadays? We’re moving toward more personalized learning and trying to let kids attain knowledge at different rates, which is tricky. Five years ago, when we started talking about this, I was a little scared — how are you going to do that for 20 to 24 kids? How are you going to personalize lessons for each kids? Now we’re using a learning management system, which allows kids to use some technology to go at a different pace. But our regular instruction isn’t gone; you couldn’t get rid of that all entirely. I try to find a balance of how I can personalize things. I don’t want to stick kids on a computer all day. But we do have technology at our fingertips. We’re lucky to have devices for every student.

What inspired you to be a teacher? I guess it was very early on during my senior year [of high school]. I remember vividly sitting down with my family. … I had so many different interests, I didn’t know what exactly I wanted to do. My dad said, “Why don’t you be a teacher? I think you’d be good at that.” … So I said, “You know what, I do like hanging out with kids and helping them.” I was all in after that. … I was really fortunate to help out at a fifthgrade classroom in Laconia, my hometown. I just wanted to make sure I was going for something I really wanted to do, and I loved Why should someone consider a career it. … I graduated from Plymouth in 2000 with my bachelor’s and got a job right away in education? I think it’s so important to love what you in Gilmanton teaching the fourth grade. do.

I have to address or talk about this year is there’s a four kids: a 12-year-old daughter, two twin 10-year-old daughters and a 4-year-old.

QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Freedom rankings

New Hampshire ranked highly on the annual Economic Freedom of North America report from the Fraser Institute, an independent research organization based in Canada. The Granite State came in second behind Florida for its economic freedom. The institute based the rankings on government spending, taxes and labor market freedom. New Hampshire topped the “all-government index,” which included the economic freedom metrics and also measured legal systems and property rights, financial security and freedom to trade internationally. QOL Score: +1 Comment: To conduct its research, the Fraser Institute partnered with the Granite Institute, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research and educational organization based in Concord.

Household safety

The Nashua Regional Planning Commission received $24,967 from the EPA to help fund its “Toxic Free is easy as 1-2-3” project, according to a news release. The commission will work with the Nashua’s Public Health and Community Services Department to educate parents and caregivers about protecting children from hazardous household products. The project will provide education, outreach, training and assistance in English and Spanish on approaches to reducing toxics in indoors, along with safer alternatives and proper disposal of household hazardous waste. QOL Score: +1 Comment: Other local communities will provide input on the program, which will be used throughout Greater Nashua. The commission will conduct outreach in Amherst, Brookline, Hollis, Hudson, Litchfield, Merrimack, Milford, Mont Vernon, Nashua, Pelham and Windham.

Slow population growth

In its 2018 Workforce Analysis, New Hampshire Employment Security reported that New Hampshire’s population growth has “almost slowed to a halt” over the last decade. Between 2010 and 2017, the state’s population grew 2 percent, the lowest growth rate since the 3 percent population growth recorded between 1910 and 1920. The state’s population has grown every decade since 1910, peaking at 24.8 percent between 1970 and 1980. Growth rates have shrunk by at least 5 percent in every decade since. The bureau wrote that a “lack of a strong population growth has implications for workforce availability.” QOL Score: -1 Comment: Between 2010 and 2017, Rockingham County had the highest net population increase with 11,080 new residents, followed by Hillsborough (8,659), Strafford (5,433), Merrimack (2,837), Belknap (691), Grafton (279) and Carroll (231) counties. Populations fell in Sullivan (-685), Cheshire (-1,090) and Coos (-1,340) counties, and no New Hampshire county added more residents than it did between 2000 and 2010.


New Hampshire appeared on Navy Federal Credit Union’s “Best Cities After Service” list, ranking the top 20 places for service members to live after leaving the military.

Thoughts waiting to be addressed

Now that the glorious Red Sox season is finally over, time to catch up on some things we’ve had on hold until the Duck Boats were in the rear-view mirror. Many complain about sports owners, including around here. But the reason Boston sports teams have won a ridiculous 11 titles already this century is that John Henry, Bob Kraft and the Celtics’ Wyc Grousbech-Steve Pagliuca combo are the best collection of owners any city in pro sports has. And while he lags behind, even Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs had an awakening after the city’s most forgiving fans finally started trickling away after 20 years of spending just enough to get a round or two in the playoffs as bad times right before the canceled 2005 season. The first three spend when needed, have a willingness to pull the trigger on a big or risky deal and have hired great people to run their teams in Danny Ainge, Coach B and Dave Dombrowski, with Bruins GM Don Sweeney offering promise. Only New York, between 1934 and 1954, has delivered more than 11 titles over 20 years. When I watch the Patriots on defense and the Celtic on offense I just keep shaking my head as I seem to only see what they’re not doing, rather than what they do well. Does that make me a perfectionist, a goofball or someone who has been spoiled by all the winning around here? How come fair and balanced Fox News host Laura Ingraham didn’t tell Chris Dudley to “shut up and dribble” when the ex-NBA big spoke up for Yalie buddy and ex-teammate Brett Kavanaugh amid the toxic Supreme Court nomination hearings? Besides saying what she wanted to hear, the only difference I can come up with between Dudley and the LeBron James-Kevin Durant duo who were told

to do that is that they shot a lot better at the line than Dudley’s embarrassing 45 percent career mark. Oh, and of course there is also that Dudley’s a white guy and they’re not. Think that makes a difference? Thumbs up to ex-Celtic Charlie Scott finally getting into the Hall of Fame. Like with backcourt mate Jo-Jo White it took far too long. It’s only partly for helping the C’s win the title in 1976 and being a major scorer in the ABA and his early NBA days. A bigger impact came as a civil rights pioneer in being the first African-American to play at North Carolina amid southern Jim Crow hostilities during the turbulent mid-’60s. That story was chronicled in ESPN’s massive Basketball: A Love Story. I had a hard time getting past the dumb name, so I wouldn’t have seen that if not for some prodding from fellow hoop-head Mark Ferdinando. But I gave it a shot and the series is spectacularly good. I’m not a huge fan of ESPN — especially MNF, which I’ll get to in a minute — but documentaries are what the worldwide leader does best. I’m with the chorus that says ESPN’s new Monday Night Football broadcast is dreadful. The chemistry is forced, Jason Witten is master of the obvious, you couldn’t pick the play-by-play guy out of a line-up of 10,000 other announcers, and if I didn’t know better I’d swear the voice coming from the sideline was Jackie Childs. Check the glossary for who he is if you don’t know. And by the way, since Booger McFarland never shuts up, what purpose does it serve to have him somewhere in the stands when he only talks about the play that just happened? And all this was in cement before last week’s Patriots game in Buffalo with their over-thetop fawning/drooling on Tom Brady through at least 40 percent of the broadcast. Stuff like that is behind why so many people don’t like TB-12 — which he has nothing to do with. As for a final comment — David Price, cover your ears — Yuck!

Congrats to future Patriots Hall of Famer Adam Vinatieri, whose 26-yard FG vs. Oakland on Sunday took him past Morten Anderson’s at 2,544 points to become the NFL’s all-time leading scorer. As for the NFL Hall, if a guy who made the greatest kick ever, won two SBs as time ran out and is the league leader in points isn’t worthy ’cause he’s “just” a kicker I don’t know who is. Looking back on the Red Sox post-season run, for next time the teams get together, which opponent earned getting one in the ribs most? Aaron Judge for the “New York, New York” musical taunt outside the locker room after ALDS Game 2? Dave Bregman for tweeting a video of Nathan Eovaldi getting ripped by Houston ahead of his ALCS start (boy, that worked)? Yasiel Puig for in-your-face showboating during the trot after his three-run homer to make it 4-0 in Game 4? Manny Machado for, well, just being Manny Machado in purposely spiking another first baseman’s Achilles tendon, this time Steve Pearce, on a play in the ninth inning of Game 4? My vote? No contest — Machado, with Puig No. 2. Give him another for his middle finger to the baseball gods for just jogging down the line on a shot off the wall with Game 3 tied to be held to a single because he thought it was going out instead of off the wall. Some idiot owner will likely give him giant money this off-season, but I wouldn’t give him 10 cents because guys like him always break your heart when it matters most. With LeBron gone for the ghost it didn’t take as long as I thought it would to fire his binky/coach Tyronn Lue, who got the axe last week after an 0-6 start. Next stop L.A.? I’ll close with a piece of advice for Price: If you haven’t done it already, now would be a good time to apologize to the Eck for putting him on the spot in front of the team last year.

Most famous play came in 1966 vs. Dallas Cowboy wide-out and Olympic gold medal 100-meter champ with the 9.1 speed Bob Hayes. Bullet Bob caught a pass from Dandy Don Meredith on the Dallas five, turned and took off for what turned out to be a 95-yard TD with Clarence a half step behind as they raced down the Cotton Bowl sideline the whole way. It was the closest thing the NFL has ever had to a 100-yard dash between two world-class sprinters in a race that was, what else, real and spectacular, though not in the Sidra kind of way.

Sheet A brief primer on curling By Scott Murphy

A spotlight during the Olympics every four years might be the only time you’ve seen curling in action, but there are opportunities to watch and play in New Hampshire, as several clubs hit the ice each season to take part in the centuries-old tradition. “People call us up and think it’s like bowling,” said Leo Leonard, founder of the Merrimack Valley Curling Club. “But it’s really more of a team sport.” What draws many curlers to the sport is its accessibility for all skill levels. While there’s friendly competition in all of New Hampshire’s leagues, players are ultimately on the ice to enjoy the game. “Curling is a relatively relaxed game in HIPPO | NOVEMBER 8 - 14, 2018 | PAGE 12

terms of its pace. ... None of us are preparing for the Olympics; our goal here is to have a good time,” said Rich Masse, president of Lakes Region Curling Association. “While people take it seriously and like to win, there’s a really nice atmosphere during these matches.” Bill Stearns, chair of the curling committee at Nashua Country Club, said he originally started curling to find something to replace golf during the winter. He admitted that fairly quickly, he found that he might be more skilled on the ice than the course. “Curling is really easy to get good enough to have fun,” said Stearns. “Pretty much everyone I golf with in the spring [is a curler].”

Eight sheets to the win

According to the Nashua Country Club, curling was first played in 16th-century Scotland and made its way to North America in 1759. It has since become Canada’s most popular sport and a common pastime in colder climates. It eventually made its way to the country club in the early 1900s and was originally played in a renovated barn. Curling’s bare necessities include two frequent finds in New Hampshire: ice and granite stones. The sport plays like a combination of shuffleboard and horseshoes on ice, give or take a few details (see “Curling terms”). Two teams of four players take turns throwing granite stones down “sheets” (lanes) of ice toward the “house” (a large

goal circle) to score points based on who’s closest to the “button” (smaller center circle). Players deliver stones by lunging forward from a crouch behind their own house, and they must release the stone before passing the “hog line” in front of their house. Other players will run down the ice and sweep in front of the stone to clear away any stray debris. The team with the stone(s) closest to the button will earn that many points. Teams include a lead, second, skip and vice-skip, who each deliver two stones during each “end.” Masse said ends are like innings in baseball, and teams alternate throwing at each position over the course of eight ends during a game. He added that the skip position

is essentially the captain of the team and dictates the strategy for the power, location and spin each player will aim for when throwing their stone. That strategy is crucial, according to Warren Barclay, a member of the bonspiel committee at Nashua Country Club (“bonspiels” are curling tournaments). The roughly 40-pound polished granite stones used for curling are made specifically to withstand impact from other stones being flung at them throughout a game. Barclay said players have to know when and where

to shoot their stones, since an early bullseye on the button won’t guarantee points. “The lead can throw it into the house, but the only stones that count are the ones closest to the circle,” said Barclay. “The lead has to be good at setting up guards, the second has to be good at removing stones and the skip and vice-skip have to be adept at both and be able to make shots.”

Curling terms If you don’t know your hog lines from your bonspiels, here are some key terms from a glossary compiled by the World Curling Federation ( Bonspiel: A curling competition or tournament. Brush/Broom: A device used by players to sweep/clean the ice in front of a moving stone. Button: The small circle at the center of the house. Center Line: The line dividing the playing surface down the middle. It joins the midpoints of the tee lines and extends 12 ft. beyond the center of each tee line. Curl: The curved path of a stone as it travels down the sheet of ice. Delivery Stick: A device that attaches to the handle of the stone and acts as an extension of the arm/hand during the delivery process. End: A portion of a curling game that is completed when each team has thrown eight stones and/or the score has been decided. Hack: The foot-hold at each end of the ice that is used by a player to start the delivery of a curling stone. Hack Line: A small line parallel to the tee line, at each end of the center line. Handle: The part of a curling stone that a player grips in order to deliver. Hog Line: A line extending across the width of the sheet that is parallel to and

located 21 ft. from each tee line. Players must release a stone before it reaches the hog line at the delivering end. If not, that stone is removed from play for the end. House: The area within the concentric circles at each end of the sheet. Lead: The first player on a team to deliver two stones in each end. Pebble: The water droplets applied to a sheet of ice before commencing play. These droplets freeze, which then reduces the friction between the ice and the stones. Sheet: The specific ice surface upon which a curling game is played. Second: The second curler on a team to deliver two stones in each end. Skip: The player who directs play for the team. Stone: Also known as a “rock,” a curling stone is made of granite and is delivered by the players in a curling game. Sweeping: The action of moving a broom or brush back and forth in front of the path of a moving stone to clean or polish the ice surface. Tee: The exact center of the house. Tee Line: A line extending across the width of the sheet that passes through the center of the house parallel to the hog line and backline. Vice-Skip (Mate or Acting Skip): The player who directs play for the team when it is the Skip’s turn to deliver.

can get the hang of things after an hour or two on the ice. As with any sport, he said, it takes time to play at a competitive level. But the lack of physical demand and relatively easy rules are the reason Nashua Country Club has seen players around age 12 all the way up to 65 and beyond. Barclay said players who can’t crouch due to age or injury can use a special stick to guide and then release the stones. “Curling is a pretty easy sport. … There’s no super physical strength or speed needed … like other major sports would need,” said Joe Lessard, president of MVCC. “If you can walk around and have good balance and are able to slide a little bit, you’ll be just fine.”

With up to 150 players at any given time, Barclay said, the high demand for curling at the country club is due to people wanting to stay active in the colder months when golf isn’t an option. Additionally, the team sport aspect of curling and its builtin social opportunities make for a unique hobby. “When you play golf, you bring your three friends, and they’re the only ones you see,” Stearns said. “When you’re done curling, it’s customary for you and your team to have dinner with the four members of the other team. Every week I was getting introduced to new people [after I joined].” Up in the Lakes Region, Masse said, the 56-member club was an instant hit when

they started after the 2014 Winter Olympics. He said more people watching curling during the Olympics might be an explanation for growing interest in the sport. “We put out a call to the whole area, and we were hoping we’d have a minimum of 28 people to pay for [ice arena] and materials,” said Masse. “As it turned out, about 50 people showed up to our first meeting, and about 40 of them joined.” Each club has its own leagues and teams, but they all maintain alternate lists to compensate for absences. For beginners, each league hosts an open house and introductory sessions at the start of their seasons (see “Curling clubs”). Barclay added that regular players are usually happy to help people interested in learning the ropes. All these curling clubs have stones, brooms and other equipment available at the facilities they use, and Lessard said people just need to bring comfortable attire and clean shoes. Barclay added that curling-specific shoes designed for better sliding on the ice can be purchased for as little as $80.

Facilitating facilities

Unfortunately, the rest of the equipment, and the facility itself, isn’t quite as inexpensive. Nashua Country Club opened a new, dedicated curling facility this past January, which Stearns said cost about $4.2 million. Barclay said the club bought its granite curling stones from Kays Scotland, which produces the stones made for the Winter Olympics. What Barclay described as the “Cadillac of curling stones” carries a price tag to match at $40,000 for a set of 32. Other companies manufacture curling stones for a lower price, and Barclay

said Nashua Country Club is the only club in the state with its own dedicated facility. The Merrimack Valley Club rents ice time at the country club, while the Lakes Region Association uses a hockey arena in Wolfeboro. Arena ice needs to be prepared for curling stones through a process called “pebbling,” which is how the ice at dedicated rinks is always kept. Masse explained that people with water tanks on their backs spray the sheets, and as those drops of water hit the ice they form bumps called pebbles. “If you put a curling stone on just hockey ice, it wouldn’t go very far; there’s just a lot of friction between ice and stone,” said Masse. “The pebbles raises the stone up a bit, so there’s less contact with the ice.” The parks and rec department in Wolfeboro outfits the ice every season with markings for both curling and hockey. Masse said this doesn’t affect their curling matches at all, though he’s “heard some rumblings that people who play hockey find the houses a little bit distracting for them.” Along with minimal demand, that’s the main reason why the Manchester Parks and Rec Department hasn’t outfitted any of the local arenas with markings for curling sheets. Department director Don Pinard said the city would have to look into how to properly integrate those markings with existing hockey lines. But if the community presented interest, he said the city would “absolutely” look into doing so. “We’ve done a bunch of different things in the city for things like disc golf and pickleball,” said Pinard. “There’s always some up and coming sports that warrant attention. We try to go out there and provide them with facilities.”

ARTS Big top Broadway

The Actorsingers put a unique spin in Pippin By Angie Sykeny

A Broadway classic gets a circus-inspired twist when The Actorsingers, a Nashua-based community theater group, performs Pippin, opening Friday, Nov. 9, at the Keefe Center for the Arts in Nashua. The 1972 musical by Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson, follows a theater troupe, led by a character known as the Leading Player, that performs a musical about Pippin, a young prince and son of Charlemagne, who is searching for existential fulfillment and the meaning of life. “It’s like a play within a play,” Director Donna O’Bryant said. “The Leading Player and the group of players are sort of this guiding force behind Pippin as he goes on this journey and meets different people who help him discover what’s important in life.” O’Bryant was inspired by a Pippin revival that she saw on Broadway in 2013, in which the theater troupe was, instead, a circus troupe. “I loved it. It was interesting to see something that wasn’t the usual interpretation of it,” she said. “I thought that a colorful and unique show like that would translate well to the stage in Nashua and would bring something special to the audience.” The production will feature circus elements like hula hoops, bouncing balls and ribbons, while maintaining the choreography style of Bob Fosse, who directed and choreographed the original Broadway production.

known for his direction of the 1972 musical film Cabaret, Fosse created a signature style of dance that included movements like jazz hands and sideways shuffling and the use of props like hats and canes. “I’ve always been a big Fosse fan,” O’Bryant said. “He has a very specific kind of choreography that’s about little, tiny movements that tell the story instead of big, flowing movements. I wanted to keep some of that original Fosse flavor in the show.” The show features a large set, numerous props and unique costumes that capture the anachronistic and surrealist nature of the show’s setting. “Some of the costumes look Grecian, some

are battle gear, but then there’s a scene where the queen is in a red sparkly dress and all the costumes are very colorful,” O’Bryant said. “There’s no specific place and time. It’s all very abstract.” The score, with instrumentals provided by a live orchestra backstage, includes “some powerful pieces and some lighthearted pieces,” O’Bryant said, many of which are choral. Actor Eric Berthiaume, who plays Pippin, said the music is his favorite aspect of the production. “Stephen Schwartz crafted an incredible score and the orchestrations for this specific version of the show that we are doing are so much fun,” he said. “Some parts of the score

are just so beautiful that it sends chills up my spine and gives me goosebumps.” One way Berthiaume is bringing Pippin to life, he said, is by relating to the character through his personal experiences. “Upon graduating [college] … things were really up in the air for me with no job prospects or opportunities. … I truly thought I was never going to find what I wanted to do in life,” he said. “Channeling the uncertainty, doubt and fear that I felt during that point of my life really powers my portrayal of Pippin as he yearns for his meaning and purpose in life.” O’Bryant said she believes the show, and Pippin’s character in particular, will also resonate with the audience in a similar way. “Everyone goes through a time when they are looking for some kind of happiness and fulfillment,” she said. “What Pippin finds out, and what I really want to get across to the audience, is that often when you go looking for something outside of what you are, in the end you find that what you were looking for was there all along.” Pippin Where: Keefe Center For The Arts, 117 Elm St., Nashua When: Friday, Nov. 9, and Saturday, Nov. 10, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m. Cost: Tickets cost $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors.

One of the easiest and most satisfying gardening activities I do each year is to plant tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and crocus in containers in the fall. I keep them in a place that is cold, but not freezing, for three or four months, then bring them into the warmth of the house, where I get gorgeous blossoms when snow may still be on the ground. I recently potted up a dozen containers with spring-blooming bulbs. There are a few things you should know about forcing bulbs. First, you will need a cold dark place where you can store your bulbs after planting them in containers. Thirty-five to fifty degrees is best, though if the temps go down below freezing for a while, that’s all right, too. Second, it is important to select bulbs that are labeled “early” or “mid-season,” not “lateseason.” It is important label each pot with the date you planted it so you can decide when to bring it into the warmth of the house. If you bring in tulips too early you will get leaves, but not blossoms. Always wait four months for tulips to be ready. Daffodils only need to rest for three months before you bring them into the house. The smaller bulbs will do fine with even less. You will see the noses of snowdrops or crocus pop up out of the planting mix, begging for some sunshine so they can bloom. Planting bulbs for forcing is easier than planting them outdoors. All you need are a few appropriate containers and some potting mix. I use my window box each year, forcing 25 daffodils in a box roughly 36 inches long, 7 inches deep and 7 inches from front to back. It has holes drilled in the bottom for drainage, which is important — no bulb likes soggy, poorly drained soil. When preparing any container for planting, fill it about half way up with a good potting soil. Or you can mix the potting soil with compost to make a 50-50 mix. Or you can make your own potting mix using peat moss, compost and perlite or vermiculite. Perlite is the white stuff you often see in commercial potting mixes — it looks like Styrofoam. But it is actually an expanded mineral that has been heated until the moisture inside it makes it pop like popcorn. It is great for keeping soil mixes lightweight and holds air, which is important for roots. Vermiculite is another expanded mineral — this one from mica. It is lightweight, but holds water. The soil mix you use should never be allowed to dry out completely when forcing bulbs. This means you need to check on the pots once a month. If the soil mix is dry, you need to water lightly. I like to start with a mix that is quite moist when I plant the bulbs. If you use bagged peat moss in making a mix, be sure to moist-

en it a few days in advance. Peat moss does not quickly absorb water when it is fully dry. So you have your pot half full of potting mix. How many bulbs can you fit into the pots? I often use rectangular clay pots that are a foot long and 5 inches deep and from front to back. If using small bulbs like crocus, I plant 20 or 25. For larger bulbs like daffodils or tulips I plant 10 or 12 in the same size pot. In a round 8-inch pot I planted three hyacinths this year. I plant bulbs closer in a pot than I would outdoors. Once planted, cover the bulbs with your potting mix and pat the soil with your hands to firm it up around the bulbs. Then give the pots a light watering and place in a cool place, as described above. If you don’t have a cold basement, you might place them in a garage or even on the steps coming up outdoors from your basement. Just remember that they must develop roots and start growing in a cold, not freezing location. Depending where you store your bulbs, mice or squirrels will eat tulips and other bulbs just as greedily indoors as out. And I’ve even had them dig daffodils out of pots and leave them in disgust – they must wonder who would want to eat them. The easiest solution to the rodent problem is to cover each container with a piece of plywood cut to the size of the container. Just be sure to check the containers often, come spring. I’ve had bulbs start growing, hit the plywood and get all bent over. To maximize the number of blooms you get, you can plant two layers of bulbs. Plant crocus or other small bulbs over daffodils or tulips. Just cover the bigger bulbs with soil mix, then add the small bulbs and cover them. It can be quite dramatic. I have done this outside, too. By mid-winter I am aching to see blossoms. Since I won’t be seeing them outside, I love to have them inside. If you have had trouble with animals eating your tulips, forcing bulbs indoors is a good way to enjoy them, without fear of squirrels digging them up or deer eating the flowers. Plant them now, or certainly by mid-December, and enjoy them in early spring. Henry can be reached at henry.homeyer@ He is the author of four gardening books.

Dear Donna, Do you have any info on this old soldier cookie jar? The marking says 112 or I12 Calif USA. Barbara Dear Barbara, He is a sweet cookie jar. I have to say I haven’t seen this one before, and I have seen so many. Your soldier is by Marsh Industries out of California. There were many companies that fell under California Potteries. I found a couple different versions of yours. One, like yours, is all in gold and the other is painted to look like a toy soldier. Both versions were cold painted on the exact same mold. This means it was painted on top of the final glazing, which was very common during the 1930s to the 1950s. The one you have looks to have been fired in a solid gold paint; then they added the hair and details in a cold paint. This is why you can see some wear in spots, which lowers the value. The value of cookie jars has changed so much in the last 10 years or so, it’s hard to keep up. A value for your cookie jar would be in the range of $50 to $100 in its condition. One thing for sure, though, they all have sentimental value. I know I remember my mom’s cookie jar!

Pinging project truck requires some tinkering Dear Car Talk: I have a project truck. It’s a 1979 Ford F-100 with a 300-cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine. Before I had it bored out to 30/1000s, it didn’t ping. Now, By Ray Magliozzi using the recommended spark plugs, it starts pinging under very light load as soon as it warms up. I am assuming that’s because of the increased compression ratio, which is causing a higher cylinder temperature. Everything else -- timing, carbon buildup, fuel mixture -seems fine. I haven’t checked the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) yet, though. So, am I right about higher compression and higher temps leading to pinging? I have been unable to find cooler spark plugs that will fit. Could I run a cooler thermostat instead? Thanks! — Don Good thing this is a project truck, Don, because I project you’ll by tinkering with this for a long time. Here’s the problem: We all know that the original engine was durable, but underpowered. Or, as we say in the business, with no disrespect meant to our canine friends, that six-cylinder engine was a dog. Most people who bought the truck with that

engine wished they had opted for the V-8. But instead of making your “project” replacing this engine with a V-8, you tried to increase its power. So you increased the size of the cylinders, and then I’m guessing you decided to replace the pistons with some differently shaped Mount Kilimanjaro ones that would generate more power. In doing so, you increased the compression ratio. And that’s probably why it’s pinging. You should check the EGR valve and make sure it’s working properly. The job of the EGR is to inject some exhaust gas into the fresh charge to cool it off and reduce pinging. So, hope that the EGR is not working, because that would be your easiest fix. Unfortunately, there are no cooler spark plugs or thermostats that will resolve this. If the EGR is working correctly, then you have two options. Since you appear to have money to burn on this truck, Don, one option is to spend an extra 50 cents a gallon on 93 octane fuel, and see how much that helps. Alternatively, you can try to retard the timing. But that’s going to have to be done through trial and error. You’ll need to tinker with it and look for some middle-ground timing setting where the pinging goes away but you still have sufficient power. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to set it so

the pinging stops, and you’ll have almost as much power as you had before you rebored the engine and installed those stupid pistons. Or you could just let it ping. And when the pinging melts your new pistons, put in a V-8 instead. Good luck, Don Dear Car Talk: Why is it that sometimes, when you see a car in a movie, the car is moving forward but its wheels are rotating backward? — Stan Good question, Stan. It has to do with the “frame rate” of movie film. Imagine you’re in a room that’s pitch black. And there’s a single car wheel in the room at the end of an axle, so you can spin it. Now imagine you start spinning the wheel, and you turn on a strobe light. The first time the strobe light flashes, you catch a frozen glimpse of that wheel, wherever it happens to be the moment the light flashes on, right? Now let’s say the speed of the wheel is perfectly matched up to the speed of the strobe light. So every time the light flashes on, the wheel has made one complete rotation. Since you only see the wheel in the same position each time, the strobe light would fool you into thinking the wheel is not moving at all — when it actually is!

Now let’s say the wheel is turning a little slower than the speed of the strobe light. So the wheel makes a little less than one full rotation between flashes. Each time the light flashed on, the wheel would appear to be slightly “behind” where it was last time you saw it. That would effectively trick your eye into thinking the wheel was going backward, even though it’s going forward, just more slowly. Movies work kind of like that strobe light. Most film is shot at a rate of 24 frames per second. Normally, that’s fast enough so your eye doesn’t notice that it’s seeing 24 individual pictures every second. What you see is smooth motion. But when you get something that’s moving very quickly, like the spokes of a car wheel, you can get that “strobe” effect. And depending on how fast the wheel is turning, compared with the 24 frames per second the movie camera is taking pictures, the wheel can appear to be moving forward, backward or standing still. We’ve tried to take advantage of this phenomenon at the garage. When we fail to fix a customer’s car, and they call up to complain that it won’t move, we’ll sometimes ask them if it could be an optical illusion. Nobody’s fallen for it yet, Stan. Visit

never really left. It’s like a lot of hobbies — as you progress, you get more serious about it. I took one step, then another step, and so on. A big step was when I bought my first mine 25 years ago.


Jim Tovey

Miner and Lapidary Jim Tovey is a miner and lapidary (someone who engraves, cuts or polishes gemstones). He owns Toveco in Milford, where he crafts gemstones, cabochons, beads and jewelry from minerals he collects in New Hampshire mines. Can you explain what your current job is? We specialize in New Hampshire gemstone material, and that material I mine. I take it from raw product to a finished product, [including] gemstones and fine jewelry. That business forces me to wear a lot of different hats. First that’s the mining part. … You have to know something about geology and drilling and blasting. From there you … take raw material and turn it into gemstones, beads, carvings. … You have to have a general knowledge of gemology and carving and a basic understanding of working with minerals, and then turning those minerals into something that is

attractive and has great eye appeal. … I can sell you an all-New Hampshire piece of jewelry, where the gemstones and gold are from New Hampshire.

What kind of education or training did you need Jim Tovey for this job? For me, it was developing [my skills] through the hobby. I have an engineering degree from Keene State College in industrial design. I’ve never taken a formal geology class. On the lapidary end, I took some gemstone classes, which were really hands-on with how to use equipment. From there, I learned the basics of cutting stones. The optical end of the gemstone cutting is just physics, and I already had that down through getting my bachelor’s. Mining was a series of steps to get [state] licenses. … That was more like an apprenticeship

What’s the best piece of work-related advice anyone’s ever given you? Always save your money, because when things happen, you don’t have to panic. You can ride the storm out.

What do you wish you’d known at the beginning of your career? When I got out of high school, I went to work at a shipyard, then got my degree, then [worked in] engineering, and now this. Either way, it seems like everything worked out and keeps working out. As long as you work hard, things will work out.

What is your typical at-work uniform? Even when I’m working at the store, [I dress] very casual. … When I’m mining, it’s a whole different setup, definitely with hard hat and safety glasses all the time. … When you’re drilling and blasting, you’re constantly wearing ear plugs.

How long have you worked there? I started when I was a kid at 12 years old. It was a hobby, then it became a serious What was the first job you ever had? hobby, then a part-time business, and now How did you find your current job?

Richard Weisberg is the owner of Noodles & Pearls (26 Pleasant St., Concord, 224-1000, find them on Facebook), a restaurant specializing in ramen noodle soups and bubble teas that held its grand opening in January. Ramen dishes come with beef, chicken, pork, tofu or just plain noodles, and rice noodles are also available as a gluten-free option. For the bubble tea, there are more than a dozen flavors like strawberry, kiwi, raspberry, pineapple and mango, with either black, green or decaf tea and boba tapioca balls or juice-filled popping boba balls. Other menu options include pork, vegetable or shrimp dumplings, spicy sesame noodles and the Hero sandwich (made with your choice of meat, plus hoisin sauce, Sriracha and mixed greens). Prior to opening Noodles & Pearls, Weisberg owned Vanderbilt’s Delicatessen, first in Brooklyn, N.Y., and later on Main Street in Concord, for many years.

nificant amount of vitamins K and C per serving. Vitamin K helps blood clot while vitamin C is good for the immune system — both pretty great benefits of eating this veggie! While I used to think of cabbage as being found only in soups and looking kind of mushy (isn’t there a scene in A Christmas Story with cabbage soup?) there is so much more to this leafy green than I thought. You can shred it, eat it raw or even roast it, as I did with this grilled cabbage “steak” recipe. There is truly so much I didn’t know about cabbage because I wrote it off as kind of boring and maybe even a little bit gross. So yes, I am definitely the one that needs the mature palate. Enjoy my super simple recipe below and try to learn from my mistakes: All vegetables can be tasty. — Allison Willson Dudas and salt and pepper. Place on the very bottom of your oven for about 10-15 minutes. Watch closely but resist the urge to open the oven a bunch. Flip halfway through cooking time. Remove when cabbage steaks are browned. I like mine a bit crispy but you might not. Serving suggestions: place these “steaks” on your favorite hot sandwich. We served them with pulled pork, but I bet they’d be great on burgers with a garlic aioli.

Sometimes I feel like my life consists of figuring out ways to creatively eat vegetables. First of all, I have three children. Getting them to eat vegetables is always a challenge even though they’re not even that picky. They prefer raw veggies like carrots and cucumbers but I’d love for them to have a more mature palate. Well really, I’d love to have a more mature palate! I get very sick of the way I eat my vegetables and struggle to find new ways to enjoy them. Vegetables are crucial in our diet both because they are incredibly healthy and give us good energy and also because they help our bodies function at their best. As we enter cold and flu season, this becomes even more critical. I’m really coming around to cabbage these days. I used to barely consider this vegetable, as it seems like the less glamorous cousin of lettuce, if that can even be a thing. Unless it was finely chopped and prepared for me in a salad, I really had no interest in it. But I started to do a little bit more legwork and have been finding good ways to enjoy this vegetable. Closely related to Brussels sprouts, broccoli and collard greens, this is a hardy plant for a New England garden. Green cabbage has a sig-

Winter Holiday Stroll

With fall in full swing, summer whites have taken a back seat to red wines — and what better place to start than California pinot noirs? The pinot noir grape is a difficult grape to grow. It is a tightly clustered, thin-skinned grape, susceptible to rot. In Europe, it is grown in Germany and Italy to create light reds, and in France, until recently, it was grown to mix with other varietals to create sparkling wines, such as Champagne. Of course, there are exceptions to every statement, as red Burgundy is 100 percent pinot noir. In the United States, pinot noir is grown in areas that have warm summer days but cool evenings. Willamette Valley in Oregon, the Carneros region of Napa and Sonoma counties in California, the Russian River Valley of Sonoma and the California central coast (south of San Francisco and north of Santa Barbara) all have vineyards devoted to pinot noir. The New Hampshire Liquor Commission has an offering they title Price Busters. My wine-geek friends and I affectionately refer to it as a form of “waste management,” wherein large quantities of wine, much of it very good, is sold at a discounted price. Recent Price Buster finds include Lincourt 2014 Lindsay’s Pinot Noir and the Carneros Hills 2014 Estate Pinot Noir. When pinot noir is released by the vineyards, it is young and fruity and can be difficult to age. As it ages, it takes on other organic nuances, leading to its complexity, and to accounts by some, to a disagreeable nose and taste. If you take advantage of these Price Busters, drink this wine now. Don’t rack it on the end table of your living room, because it won’t last. The Lincourt Pinot Noir wine hails from the Santa Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County. Located just miles from the Pacific, it is blessed with cool evening breezes that help the grape to develop. The first taste is

light and dry, grows deeper with red cherries and strawberries, with light tannins. It has a long finish, lending it to be a great sipping wine with cheese and fruit. With a Price Buster listing of $14.99, reduced from $29.99, it is a value not to be missed. The Carneros Hills 2014 Estate Pinot Noir comes from (of course) the Carneros region, which is an area that straddles both Napa and Sonoma counties along the shores of San Pablo Bay, just north of San Francisco. This wine is a little heavier or more complex than the Lincourt Pinot Noir, with notes of strawberry and young blackberry, with a sense of leather on the back of the tongue. This wine has an exceptionally long finish, and is preferred to be paired with food, such as grilled chicken or salmon. It is a great wine with a Price Buster listing of $18.99, reduced from $39.99.

An East Side New Yorker by way of Rio de Janeiro, this versatile jazz guitarist’s star is not only rising, it’s heralding a new form of world fusion, really, one that decorates modern chill-prog with salsa, bossa nova and the like. Some of this material was imagined during a vacation spent in Puglia, Italy, while some emerged from downtime spent sitting by the East River, which he does find relaxing, including the FDR Drive traffic. That may not be much of a wild stretch — some people really are born for that vibe — but these highly creative exercises could only have come from someone who’s comfortable in a lot of different worlds. Album opener “Down South” begins with upbeat salsa, moves into a John McLaughlin-esque movement, then gets feisty with splash-cymbals and a round of laid-back rapping from Devin Malloy. Inspired by the preferred Rio beach of his youth, “Arpoador” busts out the bossa nova, with Paula Santora laying on some husky authenticity. Whatever these songs try to evoke succeed perfectly.

I’m glad I finally took 15 seconds out of a day to spend some earbud time with this Detroit noise-punk-metal quartet, a band whose inarguable obscurity hasn’t come from lack of trying. Man are they ever irritating, like someone threw best-of records from Dead Kennedys, Black Flag and Zappa in a woodchipper just to see what would happen. I mean, it’s not a mess, but the intent is there, certainly, but bonus, this two-record set consists of rarities and covers, perhaps most prominently a pair of songs recorded with Pantera singer Phil Anselmo. One gets the sense that there’s enough talent here to pull off some pretty aggressive math-rock, but they do seem to prefer cacophony, raw punkness that’s a little too advanced for rail-slide-riding skateboarders, at least if they don’t want to break their skulls open. “As I Approach the Void,” for example, is a twisted, aggressive form of Beefheart reborn with a twist of — well, grunge. This was a nice surprise. A — Eric W. Saeger

PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases • Hoo boy, look, we’re already talking about the releases coming out Nov. 9! Like I always say, get the unpleasantries out of the way first, like in this week’s case, Down The Road Wherever, the new album from Mark Knopfler. Knopfler was the guy in the whatever-abilly band Dire Straits, one of the bands I couldn’t stand in the least. They did that song “Money for Nothing,” with Sting from The Police, which talked about how rough life is for established rock stars like Prince. It was some sort of meta thing, with a hidden message that said something like “You know, I’d really rather be selling refrigerators at an appliance shop, because it’s so much easier to deal with than diving into pools full of groupies and playing street hockey whenever we feel like it.” Anyway, Rolling Stone and some other corporate Pravdas dubbed him a guitar god, while I barfed uncontrollably and wondered where we’d all gone so wrong. That said, maybe this new solo album is OK (I’m sure it isn’t), so let’s plug in the ole ‘buds and listen to “Good on You Son,” the single from this whatsis. After a chill guitar intro — yup, here it comes, 1980s-bar-band stuff, like Hootie & the Blowfish meets Eric Clapton, but with his mumbly singing. I don’t know what he’s talking about, probably something to do with living in an ice shack, who cares, the drummer is good, I’m all set here. • Hoho, it’s ’90s tweenybopper heroes Hanson! Someone let them make a record! It’s called String Theory, and we’re going to talk about it, because darn it, it’s in my “Pay Attention To This” list from the cacodemons at Billboard, why hast thou forsaken me, Billboard? Many 30something-aged women will remember being in love with Hanson and their “MMMBop” bubblegum pop song, so it should be fun to see what they’re doing now. I think one of them tried acting or something, big deal, let’s mosey over to the dark web and see what this Slenderman-invented pop mess has to offer for the masses of millennials who only listen to refried trap nowadays. Here’s a song from the album, “String Theory.” The video shows some poor orchestra saps playing real violins and kettle drums, and then they start singing like Coldplay and Sting. There are hints of Sublime in there. It’s not horrible, like whoever wrote the song is probably a decent person. Aside from encouraging Hanson to make an album. • Yikes, Muse has a new LP coming out on Nov. 9 too, called Simulation Theory. Enough critics have dissed Muse over the years that there’d be no point in actually taking the time to cobble a few new insults. And who knows, maybe something is salvageable from this new Muse album, let’s go listen to the title track. Yikes, I forgot how massively triggered I get by Muse. This sounds like a discarded track from that Black Holes album, a mid-tempo jaunt with a dated electronic line, like U2’s little brother trying to be “dope,” like the kids say. I’m really, really trying to think of something nice to say here. Let’s move on. • Wait, local rawk hero J Mascis was in Dinosaur Jr. back when rock wasn’t completely hopeless, so maybe his new Elastic Days record will be cool. Let’s get down to the rock music, kids, and the single “Web So Dense.” Heh, this is like a droopy Tom Waits thing, with super-annoying synths, a bad guitar line, we’re in business. There’s an interesting guitar doodle, but man, fix your amp. I give up. — Eric W. Saeger

in a futuristic world who dies in a technical sense, but remains conscious and able to function with the help of his “biopowerpack,” an implant that keeps the brain and nervous system working, even when the body has died. “His life begins the day he wakes up dead,” Barrett said. “Now that he’s dead, he has to try and figure out what his life is about and where he wants to be and who he wants to be.” Barrett is currently finishing up the last few chapters of the book and hopes to have it ready to be read by beta readers by the end of the year, but he said he’s excited to have the first chapter published now. “There are a lot of advantages to doing something like this,” he said. “It’s a way to get my piece out there. It’s something that I can put on a table or hand out to people or share the link to the electronic version.” Devore said he hopes the anthology will encourage the other Writers’ Night Out groups to create publications of their own, and that the Concord group is looking forward to publishing a second volume next year. “People are excited and fired up to do it again,” he said. “They’re already thinking about what kind of pieces they’re going to submit.”

On the first Monday of every month, writers hold informal gatherings across the state to read and critique each other’s work, discuss the writing and publishing process or just to socialize and offer encouragement. It’s a program organized by the New Hampshire Writers’ Project called Writers’ Night Out, and there are currently 10 active groups. One of those groups, which meets in Concord, recently did something that no other group has done before — it published a book: Concord Writers’ Night Out 2018: An Anthology of Writers and Writing, a collection of 26 literary works by 21 writers from the group. (It’s available online as a PDF or a download for e-readers for free, or as a print copy for $5.) Each Writers’ Night Out group runs their meetings differently. Group organizer Gary Devore said the Concord group has always been “more of a laid back social group,” where writers can chat about their current writing projects and give each other support. While discussing ways in which they could better support each other, the idea for an anthology came up. “We were trying to think of one thing that could help everyone. Not everyone has social media or a website we can follow or a published book we can buy,” Devore said. “The only thing to do was to get a small publication together that anyone could read, that would give writers a chance to have their writing voices heard outside the group.” The anthology features a variety of literary genres, including literary fiction, horror, historical fiction, fantasy, science fiction, young adult, experimental fiction, memoir and poetry. Some are complete short works while others are excerpts from larger published, unpublished or in-progress works. “We all write about very different things, so it’s neat to have this collection of writing that we can point to and say, this is a nice representation of the type of writing produced by the people in this group,” Devore said. Additionally, the book represents writers at various stages in their writing careers. “They’re all over the spectrum, from complete novices working on their first book to veterans with a couple of titles under their belt, from people who have been traditionally published or have selfpublished, to people who hope to, one day, send their work to an agent,” Devore said. Kevin Barrett is one of the contributing writers. For the anthology, he submitted the first chapter of a novel he’s been working on for the last few years called Dead Leave. It’s a science fiction story about a man living

Rage Becomes Her, by Soraya Chemaly (Atria, 298 pages) When Soraya Chemaly was 15, she wandered into the kitchen to find her mother calmly hurling her wedding china off the veranda, pitching it to a terrace below as if the expensive plates were Frisbees. “When she was done, she walked back into the kitchen and asked me how my school day had gone, as though nothing out of the ordinary had happened,” Chemaly writes in her new book about female anger, Rage Becomes Her. What Chemaly dubs “the Throwing of the Plates,” was anger, ’70s style — a mute, cheerful suppression of a primary emotion that helped our distant ancestors protect their boundaries and keep their families alive, and still benefits men but not usually women. Now in her 50s with a daughter of her own, Chemaly is part of a chorus of women calling for a new style of rage, one that considers anger not a deadly sin but a vehicle for female empowerment to be driven boldly into the public square. If a few sacred bulls get mowed over, all the better, the anger-mongers say. If you’re male, you can stop reading now, because it’s hard to imagine what man who isn’t related to Chemaly (or quoted by her) would slog through this lengthy accounting of all the reasons American women have to be angry. There are 10 chapters, and nine are devoted to various and sundry injustices, as experienced by Chemaly and other women and as documented by research. This is not to diminish the injustices’ importance — #MeToo exploded for good reason, and the sexism that dogs women from the home to the workplace belongs here. Anger can only be noble when it’s justified; if it’s not, it’s merely a tantrum. So it was important that Chemaly answer the question “What have you got to be angry about?,” and she had plenty of material from which to draw. From constantly being told that we’d be prettier if we smiled, to the frequent threat of domestic or stranger violence, to having to wait in line for a half hour to use the restroom at the theater while men are in and out in two minutes, to (of course) Donald Trump, women are constantly seething, “continuously told to live in the cracks of a world shaped by and for men, without complaining or demanding. Without being angry.” In short, not being able to be angry, in the way that men are, is something to be angry about, too. Research has shown that men who show anger are respected for it and seen as more

powerful. Women, because of ancient societal norms that favor the weak and demur, are derided as unattractive and out-of-control when they seethe. So they suppress it, ruminate or cry, beat it down until the anger turns into illness, physical or mental. Although anger has its own health consequences — people are more likely to have a cardiac event two hours after an angry outburst — for women, the suppression of anger is just as bad, health-wise, and does nothing to effect change. Be angry and own it, counsels Chemaly, who rues her own failings on this front. When, for example, a bullying boy at her daughter’s preschool repeatedly knocked her building down, Chemaly tried to resolve the conflict peaceably by speaking nicely to the boy’s parents. The problem was only resolved when she decided to effectively parent the boy herself and speak firmly to him. But she sees, now, that she missed an opportunity to tell her daughter that she had a right to be angry about what was happening, and to express it. The evolution of woman’s rage has had its mistakes; the pink hats of 2017 are already acknowledged as one by those who say they were offensive to nonbinary people and women of color; and the chant “we’re fierce, we’re feminist and we’re in your face” was easy fodder for mockery on talk radio. Smartly, Chemaly argues here for a different kind of anger than what is usually displayed on public streets. She advocates for a “wise anger,” individualized, thoughtful, controlled. “Reenvisioned, anger can be the most feminine of virtues: compassionate, fierce, wise and powerful,” she writes. This is an anger fueled by not emotion, but by rational thought, and unlike her mother’s actions and the “rage rooms” that are popular these days, this is an anger that does not involve cathartic destruction. “Contrary to the idea that anger clouds thinking, properly understood, it is an astoundingly clarifying emotion.” Rage Becomes Her is a cogent argument for anger as female virtue, although it would have benefited from more strategy and less ruminating. Its major flaw is its omission of a key part of the story: Why was Chemaly’s mother throwing the plates? When she gets around to asking her about the incident, at the end of the book, the plate-throwing mom says only that she’d pitched a lot of dishware over the course of her life, and Chemaly lets her get away with that ambiguity. That may keep the peace at the next family gathering, but a nation of angry women deserved more. B — Jennifer Graham

Bohemian Rhapsody (PG-13)

Is 40, until the other people in the scene break. Though that kind of Robin Williams-style comedy soloing in a movie is not my favorite thing, I would have preferred a movie that was just Haddish trying to crack up her scene mates. C Rated R for sexual content and language throughout and for drug material, according to the MPAA. Written and directed by Tyler Perry, Nobody’s Fool is an hour and 50 minutes long and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

Rami Malek does an excellent Freddie Mercury in the bafflingly lame Bohemian Rhapsody, which follows Queen from its creation through the band’s appearance at the Live Aid concert in 1985.

What a cool, strange concert that was, I thought as the movie ran down the list of performers at the two-venue concert (London and Philadelphia). The movie recreates Queen’s performance with impressive accuracy. You can find that segment of the real concert out there in the world and it’s definitely worth a watch. Also, wow, Queen was so fun. Not an original thought but I felt, watching this movie, similar to how I feel watching the Mamma Mia! movies. Just as those movies remind you “hey, ABBA is fun; I need to work some ABBA into my day,” this movie reminded me that Queen was musically fun, and ahead of its time for how it navigated being both stadiumfriendly rock but also playful and experimental in how it used musical styles. It almost feels more relevant today — more like something that could find a home on your alt rock/pop rock radio than it did even back during the early 1990s when my dorky teenage friends and I were “rediscovering” it. (Probably thanks to Wayne’s World. This movie even manages to work in a little head-nod to that 1992 reintroduction of Queen.) Another observation of stunning originality: wow, Freddie Mercury was so cool. He reminds me of Prince, an artist who is awesome in his heyday but still feels fresh and relevant (maybe even more so) years later. I mention all of this because this movie pulled out and re-inflated my appreciation for the band and its performers while also being so one-dimensional and obvious that it almost felt like a Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story-style parody. You or I, with nothing more than the experience of watching one episode of VH1’s Behind the Music and at least 75 percent of any movie, could have written this movie. The beats of band formation, fame, fast livin’, business-side shiftiness, personal demons, band separation and then the final act — OK, maybe it is the history of Queen but that doesn’t mean it had to be presented with such a lack of artfulness and such hacky writing. From the disapproving father (Ace Bhatti) who hectors Freddie — born Farrokh Bulsara of Parsi ancestry — about his Plans for His Future to the manager John Reid (Aidan Gillen) who snarls that one day Freddie will realize who the true snake is (meaning Paul Prenter, played by Allen Leech), everything here feels like it is the default dialogue in the script-writing software for musical biopics. You don’t even have to know anything about Queen to know who is going to be significant because introductions of key people are done with so much neon signage and confetti. And all this while Malek does a really strong MerHIPPO | NOVEMBER 8 - 14, 2018 | PAGE 42

Bohemian Rhapsody

cury performance, giving us his showman side as well as his insecurities and vulnerabilities. Even middle-of-the-road scenes such as the band crafting the song “Bohemian Rhapsody” felt winning, in part because of how joyfully Malek presents someone wrapped up in the creative process. This movie has a The Iron Lady problem. That movie, a 2011 biopic of Margaret Thatcher, starred Meryl Streep doing good work as the former British prime minister in a movie that was otherwise a bowl of soggy corn flakes. Malek here is equally solid, in a movie that otherwise could use more time in the studio. How do you judge such work? An A for the fun of spending time with Queen and Mercury? An A- for Malek? A C- for the rest? So, B-? Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, suggestive material, drug content and language, according to the MPAA. Directed by Bryan Singer with a screenplay by Anthony McCarten, Bohemian Rhapsody is two hours and 14 minutes long and distributed by Twentieth Century Fox.

Nobody’s Fool (R)

Tyler Perry gives us romance, I guess, and comedy, maybe, with Nobody’s Fool, a movie that does not actually star Tiffany Haddish as its lead, despite what marketing for the film would have you believe.

Danica (Tika Sumpter), an ad executive on track for a big promotion, is technically the center of this story. Her sister, Tanya (Haddish), comes to stay with her at the request of the girls’ mother, an underused Whoopi Goldberg, after getting out of jail. Tanya’s presence doesn’t actually spur the storyline but it does highlight some of the weirdness of Danica’s seemingly orderly life: She gets frozen face and crazy eyes any time she’s reminded of a recent engagement that ended abruptly. She has a flirtation with the considerate, likeable and handsome owner of her favorite coffee shop, Frank (Omari Hardwick), but keeps turning him down for dates because he doesn’t meet the snobby requirements for a man on some list she’s made. And, she has a boyfriend, Charlie, who she claims to be mad-

ly in love with but who she has never met. He works on an oil rig with bad wi-fi so they can text and talk on the phone but she can’t Skype, much less meet, him. Tanya thinks this sounds entirely too convenient and decides to try to help Danica by exposing the fraudulent nature of “Charlie” — while also promoting the kind Frank, who has not only hired Tanya but helped her join his AA meeting to ensure that she stays sober. This is a jerk way to watch a movie but gah, did I so badly want to fix Nobody’s Fool. I’m aware Tyler Perry doesn’t need my advice to make another sack of cash, but it is genuinely frustrating to watch this movie, which starts out on a promising road and goes all wrong. Let’s pretend Perry did ask my advice; I’d tell him to start by getting himself a female writing partner. He clearly has things he wants to say about class and race and how money gets all tangled up in romance and that’s all great. Somewhere along the way, though, Perry has a tendency to punish his female characters, oftentimes to a rather degrading degree. When embarrassing stuff isn’t happening to them, he makes them behave with a kind of cruelty or desperation that doesn’t fit with the character he’s built. I feel like often, as is the case here, their redemption comes as a result of the forgiveness of the Good Man who is upright and true throughout the movie. Good guys are fine story characters, especially in a romance, and women who are imperfect can be equally compelling. But it makes it hard to root for anybody when the man is a saint and the woman is a somewhat infantile mess. Perry also seems at a loss to know exactly what to do with some of the assembled parts of this endeavor, particularly Haddish and Goldberg, who occasionally feel plopped in a scene. It’s like Perry knew they would be funny and solid additions to the cast but he was never really sure how to work them in. If there is any reason to see this movie, it is Haddish, who is charming and magnetic as a presence despite being stuck in a supporting role (and a so-so one at that) for no good reason. Particularly in the scenes of Haddish with Nev and Max from MTV’s Catfish, you get the sense with her that the camera is just kind of on her, a la Melissa McCarthy in This

Clara, the Mouse King, the Sugar Plum Fairy — the familiar elements of the story best-known in its ballet form show up in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, a fun riff on the classic tale.

I’ve seen Clara played as everything from a kid to a teen. This Clara is played by Mackenzie Foy, who is 18 on Saturday according to IMDb and reads as 13- or 14-ish. She, her older sister Louise (Ellie Bamber) and their younger brother Fritz (Tom Sweet) are glumly facing the first Christmas without their mother, Marie (Anna Madeley). (In some versions of the Nutcracker story, the central little girl character is called “Marie.”) Their father (Matthew Macfadyen) is also grieving, but he is at odds with Clara about how much they need to resume their everyday lives. Clara, a science-y tinkerer like her mother, would prefer to hole up in the attic, but her father insists they go to Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) party as usual. Clara is more excited when she realizes that Drosselmeyer may have the key she needs to open an engraved metal egg her mother left her. When it’s time to hunt for presents, Clara follows a golden string throughout the house, finally to a hallway that leads, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe-style, to a snowy forest. There, she sees her precious key, but before she can grab it a mouse runs away with it. When the mouse crosses a river, Clara runs to a bridge guarded by a Nutcracker (Jayden Fowora-Knight). Though the Mouse King (a somewhat disturbing large mouse-shape made up of hundreds of small mice) and Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren, we eventually learn) chase them, Clara eventually makes it back to safety, but without the key. The Nutcracker, having recognized her as the daughter of “Queen Marie,” brings her to the palace that sits at the center of four realms — Sweets, Snowflakes, Flowers and Amusements, Mother Ginger’s land, which is now known only as the fourth realm. Mother Ginger was banished from her spot as the regnant of her land, explains the Sugar Plum Fairy (Keira Knightley), because she tried to overthrow all the realms. Now that Princess Clara has arrived, the people — all former toys brought to life by her mother, so we learn — hope that she will be able to save them. Like a kid playing with a box of toys, Four


Realms dumps the various visual, musical and thematic elements of the classic Nutcracker story on the rug and makes a new adventure with them. Not surprisingly, it’s stronger on the world-building than on the execution, but this isn’t a fatal flaw, especially since I think the movie is worth the ticket price solely as an excuse to see Misty Copeland dance, which you can both in an abbreviated riff on the ballet that appears about halfway through and in a cool sequence that runs over the first chunk of the end credits. Both of those scenes also bring back a Fantasia orchestra visual cue, which is also, I don’t know, just neat. I could see knocks on this movie for its weak final third (when it also wonders away from the Tchaikovsky music) and therefore for its straying from the traditional story in general. But I think I actually like the way it used the elements of the original. If anything, the movie stays true to the toys and fantasy elements of the ballet, with a kid working out emotions

through a kind of heightened play. And I can more or less live with the weaknesses because the visuals are fun (and coherent with the story they’re telling) and the central characters (particularly Clara and the Nutcracker) are good at kid adventure and action, and because of the classic Nutcracker-y touches. I think the ideal audience here is a Nutcracker-fan parent and a kid who is familiar with the classic story and old enough to handle a giant mouse made of smaller mice, some moderately scary guard-clowns, a dead parent and a bit of dancing. And, for you and that kid and the (thankfully) less than two hours you’ll spend with this tale, I think The Nutcracker and the Four Realms offers a good-enough time. B Rated PG for some mild peril, according to the MPAA. Directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston with a screenplay by Ashleigh Powell, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is an hour and 39 minutes long and distributed by Walt Disney.

Keller Williams’ Pettygrass keeps the music alive By Michael Witthaus

• Country comfort: The cleverly named Homeschool Prom Queen is the duo of Kate West and Eric Ober. A charming new EP has elements of Gram & Emmylou, and on “Good for Gone,” a deft melding of rural folk with Decemberists alt sheen. With great harmonies throughout, the wry love song “Then I Met You” is quite sweet, a rollicking shuffle that only seems to embrace eternal bliss. Thursday, Nov. 8, 7 p.m., Bookery, 844 Elm St., Manchester. See • Cover thee: A weekend of tributes begins with Maiden New England, billed as the “ultimate Iron Maiden experience.” The heavy-metal heroes were once again snubbed by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a move singer Bruce Dickinson recently dismissed as a “complete load of bollocks.” There’s more metal the next night as Souls of Sabbath cover Black Sabbath.

See bit. ly/2DnBBAG. • Boulder band: Melding classic rock and dance music, Evanoff plays “Dream Rock,” defined as “dancey break beats, symphonic guitar riffs, powerful builds and face melting jams.” The Denver-based, Boulder-born band is led by by namesake JJ Evanoff’s guitar playing, with drummer John Hall and Brennan Forrester on synthesized bass and keyboards. Friday, Nov. 9, 8:30 p.m., Penuche’s Music Hall, 1087 Elm St., Manchester. 21+.

The death of Tom Petty hit the music world hard. Forever on tour, with seemingly boundless energy, he was always creating, and no one was prepared to lose him. With his passing, many created ways to carry on Petty’s musical legacy. One of the most interesting is Pettygrass, led by guitarist and singer Keller Williams and backed by bluegrass band The Hillbenders. It’s more than a Pickin’ On treatment of Petty’s classics, as the group infuses songs like “Even The Losers” and “Runnin’ Down a Dream” with a reverence that suggests how Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers might have done them as a bluegrass band. Williams found inspiration as a teenager through Petty, latching on in the Damn the Torpedoes era. “Radio was a lot more influential back then, and pretty much always on,” he said in a recent phone interview. “I’ve never really had a Tom Petty record, but I could sing 15 of his choruses, no problem.” With his band The Keels, Williams covered a mashup of Petty’s “Last Dance With Mary Jane” and “Breakdown” at shows — a move audiences loved so much he recorded it for a 2005 album. “Any song could be a bluegrass song in my mind — just play it in double time,” he said. “Petty was from Jacksonville [so] there is definitely a hillbilly side of him, too. Though some people don’t want to admit it — at least in my band.” Dabbling in Petty’s music led to a 2015 SPCA benefit in his hometown that offered a full night of Petty songs, bluegrass style. With Jay Starling on dobro, guitarist Jeff Covert and Williams on

bass, it was a great night. When Williams got the sad news in October 2017, that evening was on his mind. “The day he died, I’m in the studio … and I couldn’t focus, so I pulled out my cell phone and there’s probably like 90 minutes worth of voice memos from the rehearsal for that show,” Williams said. “Recording that was so fun, so we just mastered those and released it on SoundCloud.” Then the Hillbenders, a Springfield, Missouri, band that’s best-known for doing a bluegrass version of The Who’s rock opera Tommy, heard the tracks and reached out to Williams. “They see we’re fans and wanted to collaborate,” Williams said. “So that is how Pettygrass came about — it was a Hillbenders idea.” The two knew of each other but hadn’t played together before. “I crossed paths with the Hillbenders a couple of years ago at different festivals … and just really got to like them,” Williams said. Musically, the songs remain faithful, but elements like gorgeous harmonies set

the project apart. “That’s something that I love dearly,” Williams said, “and the songs just really lend themselves to that harmony. … They’re not there on the record, but it’s something that I’m really proud of, and those guys are really fantastic singers.” Mutton-chopped Hillbenders dobro player Chad Graves, a.k.a. “Gravey,” is a big part of the fun on this tour, both on stage and off. “He is the Dapper Dan of bluegrass music,” Williams said. “The type of guy to go out to a festival and throw his dobro on and walk around the campsite looking for a jam. One of the funnest times on this tour was following him around at the Redwood Ramble up in Northern California. … We had a good time picking with some West Coast freaks out there.” The tour’s been going since June, fueled by top musicianship and a love for the material. “We all connect on so many levels that no one holds back,” Williams said. “It’s kind of a rock and roll mentality on one side but with a real kind of executing precision on the other and I really like that. ... It’s loose but yet it’s tight. Somehow we find that balance.” At some point, a live album will come out of the tour, but how that will happen is something Williams won’t divulge. “I don’t want anyone to get nervous,” he said with a laugh, “but yeah, there’s going to be some multi-tracking.” BY TODD SANTOS

The power of community coming together and achieving something like this,” said Jani Franck, who participated in the chain. October Books was forced to move after a rent increase in its old building. “It was a tremendous show of support ... and we’re moved and incredibly touched by it,” Clare Diaper, who works at the store, told the Guardian.

After the package bomb scares in New York and Florida, things were tense in Charlotte, North Carolina, in the early morning hours of Oct. 30 when mailroom employees at Duke Energy discovered a suspicious incoming package.

Construction workers in Valdosta, Georgia, were rattled on Oct. 30 when they tore down a second-story wall in a turn-of-the20th-century building to find about 1,000 human teeth secreted inside. The T.B. Converse Building, constructed in 1900, was originally home to a dentist, Dr. Clarence Whittington, reported the Valdosta Daily Times. In 1911, Whittington was joined by Dr. Lester G. Youmans. Ellen Hill, director of Valdosta Main Street, said two other Georgia towns have had buildings, also home to dentists’ offices, where teeth have been found in the walls. “I’m not sure if it was a common practice” to deposit extracted teeth in the walls, she said. Valdosta police said there was no evidence of a crime.
