Wage stagnation

New Hampshire continues to grapple with a workforce shortage that affects most every sector in the state. I recently reconnected with college friends outside Boston for a mini reunion of sorts; I was the only one traveling who lives outside Massachusetts. The conversation soon turned to one of my friends’ most-asked questions — why do I still live in New Hampshire? Although we all graduated from college in New Hampshire, I’m the only one who’s stayed in the state since graduation. My friends talked about how much they miss New Hampshire. They all said that someday, when they’re ready to settle, they’ll be back. But for now coming back doesn’t work for them because to do so would require either commuting, a significant pay cut or both. These folks are in roles usually requiring advanced degrees where Boston has consistently held the competitive advantage, but this issue has far-reaching effects, as my recent tour of the New Hampshire State Correctional Facility for Women revealed. The warden shared that of the 60 security jobs at her facility 19 are vacant. The lack of qualified correctional officers is a statewide issue here in New Hampshire but this is not the case in Massachusetts, where there is a waiting list of people for these positions. The difference in pay is one of the top reasons, the warden said, with salaries for security staff starting nearly 50 percent higher in Massachusetts. Analysts have been warning for years about the threats to our economic growth and prosperity as a state. The factors highlighted often include our aging population, our high energy and health care costs, low birth rates, and slowing in-migration of younger professionals. Although some of these factors are showing promise, they are overall still significant threats. I would argue we also need to evaluate how our child care costs, housing costs and availability, job growth and wages all factor into the workforce shortage. New Hampshire has historically been able to use its lack of an income tax as justification to pay workers less. Is this argument going to remain attractive even as employers struggle to find the supply of workers to meet their demands? I’ve made my decision to stay in New Hampshire even as higher wages and economic prosperity whisper to me from just over the state line. New Hampshire is known as the place to go when you’re ready to settle — let’s hope we can someday position ourselves as not only a great place to live but a great place to grow.

Merrimack Station

On March 4, the Conservation Law Foundation and Sierra Club filed a joint lawsuit targeting operations at Merrimack Station in Bow. The 502-megawatt coal and oil power plant is located on 230 acres along the Merrimack River and currently operated by Granite Shore Power, whose parent company is based in Connecticut. It is the largest coal-burning power plant left in New England. In January 2018 Eversource Energy announced it had completed a sale of five power plants, including Merrimack Station, to Granite Shore Power. The lawsuit alleges that both owners have “engaged in ongoing and continuous violations of the Clean Water Act.” Specifically, the suit claims that the plant has “discharged heated wastewater” into the Merrimack River for decades, damaging the “environmental and ecological health” of the river. The Foundation and Sierra Club are requesting that the station’s previous and current owners pay anywhere from $37,500 to $53,484 “per day per violation for all Clean Water Act violations.” According to the AP, Eversource denied the allegations and said the company worked with the EPA before the sale to address all environmental requirements, including the violations outlined in the lawsuit.

School safety site

Gov. Chris Sununu and Perry Plummer, director of the state’s Bureau of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, announced a new school safety website, schoolsafetyresources. Creating the School Safety Resource Center was one of the recommendations outlined by the Governor’s School Safety Task Force. According to the site, the platform will act as a “central location of the resources available to assist educators, emergency responders, community organizations, school mental health professionals, families and students in creating safe, positive and successful educational environments for students in all New Hampshire schools.” The task force’s final report included 59 recommendations, four of which have been completed and 41 of which are in progress, according to the website. The three other completed recommendations are establishing a protocol for school administrators after a “critical school incident”; establishing an alert system for parents, staff and non-first responders during an emergency; and implementing a visible door and window numbering system and maps in state schools to allow for better navigation of school buildings.

Opioid crisis response

Correction The Feb. 28 story “Part-Time Pets” should have said that the New Hampshire Audubon does not rehabilitate animals; the Audubon’s “animal ambassadors” come from licensed wildlife rehabilitators who have already returned the animals to a healthy condition, and the Audubon provides homes and care for these animals that can’t survive in the wild.

Harbor Homes in Nashua announced a partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service to create a new AmeriCorps program focused on the opioid epidemic. Up to 20 individuals will be able to work for the program, called the Harbor Homes Recovery Corps. Each member will serve a year-long term

as a recovery coach for nonprofits across the state, when they will work toward their New Hampshire Certified Recovery Support Worker certification. Members will also be eligible for health insurance, child care assistance and student loan deferment through AmeriCorps. For information, contact or call Erin Segaloff at 882-3616.

Last Friday, the New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts and New Hampshire Humanities announced a new workplace program called “Humanities @ Work.” The committee’s membership includes local businesses looking to promote “the intersection of art and commerce.” Through the program, members of the committee will be able to bring humanities-based programs into their workplace, including seminars on music, poetry and crafts as well as New Hampshire folklife traditions and history. Members will receive discounts on booking these programs.


Mayor Joyce Craig of Manchester, along with business and nonprofit leaders, announced a new statewide crowdfunding platform called iFundWomen New Hampshire. The site is meant to help early-stage women-led businesses raise business funds. Entrepreneurs will also have access to one-on-one startup coaching, professional video production services and a private network with other startups. According to a report from the mayor’s office, women start businesses at 4.8 times the national average but receive just 2.2 percent of all venture capital dollars.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen petitioned the Secretary Derry of the Merrimack Navy to protect $162 million in funding allocated to three Londonderry military construction projects at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, according to a news release. Funding for several NASHUA military projects nationwide could be diverted to build a southern border wall through President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration.



American Medical Response reported that a fatality in Nashua from January has since been confirmed to be opioid-related. This negates a report from early February showing no January opioid overdose deaths in Nashua, which would have been the city’s first month without an opioid death since December 2015. So far this year there have been 47 opioid overdoses and four opioid-related deaths in Nashua, with two deaths pending toxicology reports. In Manchester there have been 115 overdoses and 11 confirmed deaths.

A proposed ordinance from Alderman Ernest Bedford Jette would raise the smoking age in Nashua from 18 to 21. According Amherst the law to the proposal, would ban the purchase, use and possession of Milford “any product containing tobacco” for residents under 21, along with e-cigarettes and related products. The Nashua Telegraph reported that the city’s aldermen will discuss the proposal in April.

A new federal ruling on a decades-old law could have significant effects on New Hampshire’s education system. The new interpretation of the Federal Wire Act essentially bans online lottery sales, a key source of funding for public education in the Granite State. The Wire Act was passed in 1961 to ban the use of “wire communication” for “interstate or foreign commerce of bets or wagers.” In a 2011 ruling, the U.S. Department of Justice clarified that this only applied to betting on sport events and not online lottery sales. However, the department issued a new opinion last November, claiming that the law isn’t “uniformly limited to gambling on sporting events or contests.” The opinion was made public by department in mid-January. New Hampshire’s Lottery Commission and Department of Justice have now challenged the U.S. Attorney General’s decision. The state’s complaint claims that the decision creates “substantial uncertainty as to the continued legality” of the New Hampshire Lottery. “The simplest way to put it is that this potentially criminalizes a whole broad array of conduct that has otherwise not been criminalized before,” said Steven Gordon, shareholder and director of Shaheen & Gordon in Concord. “New Hampshire is the perfectly appropriate state to bring such a claim, because we are so dependent on lotteries and games of chance.”

Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery, said there was no state funding for local public education before the lottery was created in 1964. Since then, all net proceeds from lottery sales have gone toward state education, totaling over $2 billion to date. In Fiscal Year 2018, the lottery reported an all-time sales record of over $331.8 million, with $86.5 million in net profits going toward state education. Maura McCann, director of marketing for the lottery, said that $61.3 million has been raised for education so far in Fiscal Year 2019, running from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. According to the New Hampshire Department of Education’s 2017-2018 finance summary, the state’s net revenue sources for education totalled roughly $3.2 billion, most of which ($1.9 billion) comes from “local taxation.” Still, though lottery sales aren’t the state’s main source of education funding, McIntyre said the state and municipalities still counting on that money in their education budgets.

“If you break it down by city or town, you’re talking lots of money that jurisdictions have probably already budgeted for or will have to budget for,” McIntyre said. The U.S. DOJ’s ruling comes at time when the New Hampshire Lottery has expanded its online offerings. The state launched the new iLottery platform in September, which allows people to purchase e-instant tickets and play online, draw-based games. According to McIntyre, the state is investing in the platform to take advantage if a growing market. He said iLottery is projected to make up to $6 million in its first full-year and up to $8 million in the following year. “That’s real money for a state this size,” said McIntyre. “To sort of do a 180 at a time when we’ve dedicated a lot of resources to this program, it’s just out of the blue and unacceptable.”

Legal proceedings

Gordon pointed out that the DOJ’s ruling is an “opinion that seeks input” and not a directive. The DOJ wrote that its opinion is based on the “plain language of the statute” but acknowledged that Congress has “ultimate authority over the scope” of the law. However, Gordon said the ruling as drafted is “ill-advised” and an “oversweep of the intent of the statute.” He pointed to a past ruling by the First Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld the DOJ’s previous opinion that the Wire Act solely covered sports betting. “I would think that precedent is fairly controlling in this situation,” said Gordon. “Clearly, Congress hasn’t passed a law saying ‘scratch tickets can be subject to prosecution’ or ‘draw-based games can be subject to prosecution.’” Gordon said the U.S. DOJ has 90 days to respond to New Hampshire’s complaint against the ruling. He was unaware of any lawsuits brought forward by other states. NeoPollard Interactive, the contractor that runs New Hampshire’s iLottery platform, also runs similar systems for Michigan and Virginia. McIntyre said the state’s actions depend on that response. “The difficulty is they wrote the opinion with zero guidances of how it should be applied and zero guidance to people who would apply it,” said McIntyre. “That’s why we are where challenging this. It depends on how the Justice Department interprets their interpretation.” “This [ruling] changes the perspective of the Department of Justice contrary to established law,” said Gordon. “Prudence suggests it’s better in this instance to ask for permission first rather than penance later.”



Scaling back

Wildlife center moves to seasonal schedule For 20 years, Helen Dalbeck was executive director of Amoskeag Fishways, a wildlife education center in Manchester. Eversource sold the Amoskeag Dam last August, ending its contract with New Hampshire Audubon that supported the programs at Amoskeag Fishways. The center will now only be a seasonal operation open between April and July. How did Amoskeag Fishways start? The fish ladder for passage for migrating fish was built in 1989. The Amoskeag Hydro Dam and its owner, PSNH [now Eversource] … also installed underwater viewing windows … and started to invite the public to come down and witness the migration. … They decided to ... create a yearround center in ‘95 … and contracted [with] New Hampshire Audubon, because of their expertise of science and environmental education. … We also ... worked with New Hampshire Fish and Game and U.S. Fish and Wildlife … and began developing and installing permanent exhibits that focused on the Merrimack River and the Merrimack River Watershed. … We developed more school programs that we could teach at the center, but also programs that we could take on the road and teach in local schools. ... Soon after, a lot of the live animals came in. We were able to bring in, with permits, native turtles and salamanders and frogs and toads. We’ve had snakes … some American eel and some Atlantic salmon. 125798

Why is the center changing now? PSNH became Eversource, and they wanted to get out of the generation business. We knew probably three or four years ago that this was all going to happen; that the hydro station, and thus the Fishways, would be sold. … The new owners are Hull Street Energy [in Maryland]. The local subsidiary is Central Rivers Power. The sale finalized last August. … Initially, the center was open seasonally in the early ’90s. The choice was made to go back to that seasonal nature of the center and to have interpreters at the center open for walk-ins and visitors and tours during the time What are you into right now? I have a meditation practice, and I don’t think I could have gotten through this whole transition without those 20 minutes on the cushion every morning.

when the fish ladder is in operation. … The partnership that’s been in place for all these years will not continue … and the center will be open just [from April to July]. How does the fish ladder work? You put up a dam, and it’s like putting up a brick wall in front of fish that have been moving up the river for all of time. … [The ladder] looks like a staircase. Each ... opening has a bit of a waterfall, so the water is pouring down the staircase. The water comes into the fish ladder above the hydro station and the dam, and it pours out down below the hydro station dam. It provides upstream passage for migrating fish … that are swimming upstream to spawn. Helen Dalbeck

What will the center’s programming look like going forward? I really don’t know. We’re leaving them with our fish season tours and brochures, all the research that we’ve done and materials we’ve created over the years. They’re in a really good position, I think, to just go to the files and pull out a top-notch program. … The new owners and the staff that’s there, they’re engineers, they’re biologists, they’re focusing on the hydrology of the river and the operation of the station. Perhaps they’ll create something new and different ... [to teach] the operation of the fish ladder and how hydropower works. Why was the Fishways important to the city? A river attracts life. Not only does it attract migrating fish and raptors and birds, but it also attracts people. There’s this city that’s built up around this river, and lots of people live near the river or across the river and never really pay attention to it. So a place like [this], ... we’re helping people pay attention to ... these incredible natural features. — Scott Murphy

QUALITY OF LIFE INDEX Cutting down crime

The Manchester Police Department released preliminary data showing a drop in crime over the last year. Overall crime dropped by about 3 percent from 2017 to 2018, from 3,712 to 3,610 reported cases. Violent crime (homicide, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault) fell by 9 percent, while property crime (burglary, larceny, auto theft, arson) fell by 1 percent. According to Captain Brian O’Keefe, the data hasn’t been validated by the FBI and is subject to change. QOL Score: +1 Comment: Two types of crime did see slight increases over the last year. From 2017 to 2018, the number of homicides increased from two to five cases, while incidents of larceny increased 6 percent from 2,293 to 2,440 cases.

Costly nursing home care

Seniors and their families will have to pay a steep price for nursing home care in New Hampshire. According to a new report from Business Insider, an average private nursing home room in the Granite State costs $11,102 per month, the ninth-highest cost in the country. That figure is relevant to many Granite Staters, as the study also found that roughly 236,157 residents are 65 and older. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Only Massachusetts ($12,775 per month) and Connecticut ($13,733 per month) had higher costs in New England, ranking fourth and second, respectively. Alaska’s nursing homes are the most expensive in the country by far, with an average cost of $27,573 per month for a private room.

Rare disease

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new data about confirmed cases of acute flaccid myelitis, including a victim in New Hampshire. The disease is a rare neurological condition that weakens muscles and reflexes, similar to polio. As of March 1, the CDC confirmed one case in New Hampshire in 2018, adding that “patients under investigation are still being classified, and the case counts are subject to change.” There were 223 cases nationally and five other cases in New England last year, including four cases in Massachusetts and one in Rhode Island. QOL Score: -1 Comment: According to the CDC, more than 90 percent of patients had a mild respiratory illness or fever before they developed the disease. Symptoms began to show up between August and October in most cases. The CDC first noticed a large number of cases being reported in 2014 and has since seen increases in cases every two years.


A new report from the Anti-Defamation League included a dozen incidents reported by individuals in New Hampshire between 2017 and 2018. The events included 10 anti-Semitic incidents and two reports of people distributing white supremacist propaganda. Each incident happened in a different New Hampshire community, including events in Concord, Hooksett and Nashua. QOL Score: -1 Comment: Maine and New Hampshire had the fewest reports in New England with 12 each, followed by Vermont (15) and Rhode Island (19). Incidents were much more common in Connecticut (57) and Massachusetts (221). QOL Score: 52 Net change: -2 QOL this week: 50 What’s affecting your Quality of Life here in New Hampshire?

We treat dogs and cats too!

After a truly wretched stretch in the most frustrating NBA season I’ve personally experienced, the natives and the media justifiably turned on your Boston Celtics in the last few weeks of February. Most in the media and cheap seats did what they always do: scream for the coach’s head and blame whichever player happens to be in the crosshairs. In this case they harped on Brad Stevens, the inconsistent Gordon Hayward and free agent to be Kyrie Irving, especially after he wavered on his previous “I’m coming back” statement. And his less than brilliant response was to get surly with the media. All that aside, I tend to be more interested in solutions. To find them, you’ve got to put frustrations aside, eliminate panic and analyze the problem. Which starts with going back to the last time the team played in sync and what factors derailed that on-court karma. So here’s my analysis: Last Time in Sync: The playoffs last spring where a young team surprised/ shocked many by overcoming the loss of its two best players and going to the Eastern Conference Finals. High Expectations: These came with the knowledge that Kyrie and Hayward would be added to this young, talented team. The problem was and is that Hayward’s immediate return to form was taken for granted by everyone, when it turned out to be more grueling in nature. Plus both players had a learning curve to make for playing with the others that none of us anticipated. Panic Grips The Hub: It’s been that way since the 10-10 start punctuated awful losses to both L.A. teams at home and moribund Bulls in Chicago. That amped up the media grumbling. Then came panic, like the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn suggesting a solution to fix the problem. Props to him for trying, but unfortunately it was the single

dumbest solution offered by any journalist in history when he said — are you ready for this? — bring in Carmelo Anthony! Perfect — bring in the biggest offense-clogger ever to a team that doesn’t have enough ball movement when Kyrie’s on the floor. Yikes. As Bill Parcells says, if you listen to the people in the cheap seats sooner or later you’ll be up there with them. You Are What Your Record Says You Are: Speaking of Tuna, if his famous line is right, maybe it is Kyrie. They’re 10-2 when he hasn’t played in 2018-19 and 31-24 when he does. An .833 winning percentage to .566. That’s a big difference. If you’re wondering against those common opponents from the games he’s missed they’re 10-6 when Kyrie plays. Last year it was 14-8 in the 22 he missed and 39-21 when he played — .633 vs .650. Plus you may recall they went 11-8 in three playoff rounds without him. All that suggests being better off without him. But I’m not ready to draw that conclusion. Free Agency: Complaining about the complications media/fan attention brings to your life is not a good look for a 20-something millionaire. The reason NBA teams are able to pay people $170 million is that people care. If they don’t care to watch and spend, bye-bye money. If you can’t live with that, retire or get a 9-to-5 job like the rest of us. In other words, grow up and deal with it because it’s an important part of the job and it’s the same everywhere. Talent vs. Production: There’s a difference between great individual talent and being the reason a teams always wins. Kyrie dazzles three times a night with individual brilliance but rarely brings out the best in others. That’s all that was needed in Cleveland because LeBron was there. More is needed in Boston. Until he learns how to make others better, like the folks listed in the Sports Glossary, he’s a No. 2, not a team’s hub. What’s the Real Problem: Al Horford aside, he doesn’t know how to get the most out of everyone else. Great players like Larry Bird, Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and

LeBron elevate those around them. Trust me, there’s nothing worse than playing with a guy who pounds the ball waiting to get their shot, as you stand around looking into the fifth row. That leads to eye-rolling, frustration and eventually the toxic environment Jaylon Brown recently talked about. Especially after said pounder starts lecturing others on how to play. Problem 2: The other guys don’t know how to play with Kyrie. Great ball movement got people open last spring. With Kyrie, movement without the ball is more important because there’s not as much ball movement but when you’re open you’ll get it. They also need to understand his real value. He commands double teams that get others open, and he can close games down by taking over at the end. Real championship teams need that and no one else can do it. Can It Be Fixed? Kyrie’s a smart guy, but he hasn’t shown a lot of self-awareness to make these adjustments. He’s got the intellectual ability and with a month to go before the playoffs there’s enough time. So the question is, can Stevens get Kyrie to listen and then adjust? The Patriot Factor: I have the same feeling now I had for the Patriots into December. No way they’re winning anything. Then, out of nowhere, back to normal spanking San Diego, er, L.A. The Celtics aren’t five champs, but sometimes despite the signals the switch just flips. So, I guess you never know. Gordon Hayward: Incidentally, the flip-switcher for a redemptive spring is not Kyrie. It’s Hayward. In the eight games before spraining his ankle Hayward was in double digits six times and they were 6-2. In the three since it got better, he went for 12, 30 and 15 in three straight wins, making it 21-4 when he scores 12 or more points. It’s not just the points, it’s when he’s confident his passing and facilitating ability in the half-court makes everyone better.

The Big Story: When a team wins its fourth straight state championship as the Bishop Guertin girls did Saturday it’s big. That’s what the Cardinals did with their 46-33 win over six-seed Portsmouth at SNHU’s Stan Spirou Fieldhouse in a balanced effort led by the appropriately named Hannah (much) Muchemore and Erin Carney with a game-high 14 and 10 points respectively. BG finished an undefeated 21-0 and set themselves up to try and match the five straight won by Winnacunnet from 2007 through 2011. Sports 101: There has been only one time in NCAA history when players from each team in a game have scored over 50 points. Name those players. Hint: One had over 60 points and it occurred between SEC teams. Big Story II: That would be the Bedford hockey team winning in a 7-0 rollover of upstart Trinity. The biggest gun was Parker Roberto, who had a hat trick on his way to a five-point game. Making it sweeter was doing it after overcoming some early February woes to let the Bulldogs claim their sixth Division I Hockey title in the last eight years, putting them in the debate whether that as yet qualifies them as a New Hampshire hockey dynasty.

Michael Jordan: Chicago jumped 11 wins his rookie year, from 27-55 to 38-44. Magic Johnson — Lakers: A 47-win team that already had Kareem went to 60 and won the NBA title. Shaquille O’Neal — Magic: The expansion Magic went from 21-61 before Shaq to 41-41 his rookie year, then to the Finals in Year 2. And if you think Kobe was the biggest reason he won his first three titles, guess again. After the big fella’s trade to Miami, L.A. went from 53 wins and in the Finals to 34 and out of the playoffs, while the Heat went from 41 to 60 and NBA champs in Year 2. Tim Duncan — Spurs: A 20-62 record and huge lottery luck over a Celtics team with much better odds to get the first pick landed San Antonio Duncan. It transformed them from the lottery to a 56-26 NBA title winning club. The asterisk is that SA also got David Robinson back after missing the entire previous year to make it more like getting the first and second players in the draft. Lew Alcindor — Bucks: Winning the coin flip after going 27-55 got the Bucks the first overall pick, which rocketed them to 56-26 in Big Lew’s rookie season and last year before the name change to Kareem. Larry Bird — Celtics: With ML Carr the only other addition, the C’s went from 24 games under .500 at 29-53 to 40 games over .500 as they went 61-21 as Larry’s legend began his rookie season. The 32-game jump is the largest one-season turnaround in NBA history. He should’ve been MVP, not just Rookie of the Year.

MEAT A field guide to corned beef, pastrami and Montreal smoked meats

By Matt Ingersoll

As St. Patrick’s Day approaches, local butcheries and restaurants are serving up hundreds (and in some cases, even thousands) of pounds of corned beef throughout the weekend. But despite its popularity during this time of year here in New Hampshire, corned beef is not actually as big a staple in Ireland as you might think. “It’s a common misnomer that corned beef is a big deal on St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s actually pork belly,” said Dave Manganello, owner and chief pitmaster of Riverside Barbeque Co. in Nashua. “Corned beef is definitely more of an Irish-American thing.” HIPPO | MARCH 14 - 20, 2019 | PAGE 12

In fact, brisket — the cut of meat most commonly used to make corned beef — can also be used to make pastrami and Montreal smoked meat, none of which are strongly associated with Ireland. So how did corned beef and cabbage become such a popular St. Patrick’s Day meal? Local chefs and butchers explain that, as well as the difference between corned beef, pastrami and Montreal smoked meat, the origins of each, and some of the best ways they can be incorporated into meals.

with, according to Manganello. The brisket is made up of the thicker, fattier end known as the point cut, and the much leaner flat cut. The term “corned beef” gets its name from the pickling — or brining — process the meat undergoes, which is made up of a solution of “corns” of salt, plus varying herbs and spices, before it’s then boiled. It will usually result in one of two distinct colors: either a pinkish, ham-like color as a result of a brining solution containing Prague salts, or a gray color if it’s cured with salt only. “Curing … is a long and slow process, and what it does is it breaks down the toughness CORNED BEEF Corned beef almost always will come of the meat and makes it tender,” said Rick from brisket, the pectoral muscle of the cow Morten, a kitchen manager at Patrick’s Pub that is a very tough cut of meat to start out & Eatery in Gilford, which cooks more than

1,000 pounds of corned beef in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day. Some restaurants, like the Tuckaway Tavern & Butchery in Raymond, may take the curing process a step further. According to owner Bobby Marcotte, its New England gray Angus brisket uses apple juice to give it even more of a unique flavor. Manganello said the origin of corned beef in the United States can be traced back to the Jewish delis in New York in the 19th century like Katz’s Delicatessen, which predominantly had brisket. “The Irish would eat pork, because that was their cheap cut of meat that they could get pretty easily,” he said. “Then when you had Irish immigrants coming to this country,

traditionally from the navel end of the beef plate, a much fattier and less stringy cut just below the brisket on the underside of the animal, according to Johnny Love of Huntspoint BBQ & MEAT’ery in Epping. Pastrami is dry-rubbed and smoked, as opposed to corned beef being boiled. Common ingredients that coat pastrami before it goes in the smoker are black pepper, sugar, coriander, cumin and garlic cloves. “Corned beef will not usually be seasoned as much as pastrami,” Love said. “Everybody will kind of have their own take on what goes in a pastrami seasoning.” The style is widely believed to have originated in Romania, Manganello said, its popularity migrating to the United States along with Jewish immigrants of eastern European descent in the late 19th century. The word is derived from the term “pastramă,” which not only referred to beef, but also to lamb, pork, turkey and mutton. Like corned beef, the production of pastrami was a way to preserve the meat. “The pastramă was this cut of meat that [they] didn’t know how to deal with, because they couldn’t bring it to a market to a degree that was super sellable,” he said. “The jump from this brisket to that brisket is basically a border somewhere in eastern Europe where people decided they were going to pre-rub and smoke the meat.” The pastrami sandwich with spicy brown mustard on rye bread has been made famous by Jewish delis in New York, but other dishes you might find that use the meat include pastrami grilled cheeses, and a pastrami macaroni and cheese that Love has served at his restaurant in the past.


The production of Montreal smoked meat and pastrami can often be the same or similar, but the way the two meats are then finished and prepared is different. Montreal smoked meat also traditionally is made from brisket that is dry rubbed, but with more savory, peppery flavors and significantly less sugar than pastrami, or sometimes no sugar at all. The meat can be left to sit anywhere between 24 and 48 hours or more before it’s smoked. Dan Lagueux, co-owner of New England’s Tap House Grille in Hooksett, which actually uses tri-tip cuts instead of brisket for its Montreal smoked meat sandwiches, said there is a debate on exactly where and how PASTRAMI the meat was introduced. But perhaps one Pastrami can also be prepared using of the most iconic places in Canada you brisket, but unlike corned beef, it is more can get it is at Schwartz’s Deli, which was established in Montreal in 1928 by Reuben Corned beef and cabbage Schwartz, a Jewish immigrant from Romafor St. Paddy’s Day nia.

it was a different situation for them, especially in the Jewish communities, because they don’t eat pork.” In the United States, brisket was also much cheaper at the time than pork, which was considered more of a luxury product as opposed to its availability in Ireland. “People didn’t eat [corned beef] necessarily because of St. Patrick or anything he may have done,” Manganello said. “It was just people taking products that were available to them. … Humans have been preserving meats with smoke and salts for thousands of years, and this was just another way basically to bring the moisture out of the meat so that it can last longer.” He added that these same principles — cheapness, availability and preservation — apply to other foods that are boiled such as the cabbage, potatoes, carrots and turnips that make up the popular corned beef and cabbage meal we know today. “March isn’t exactly known for being bountiful,” he said. “So, I mean, you’ve got potatoes, which you can store all winter long, you’ve got cabbage, which grows late in the season, and you’re already boiling the corned beef, so you’re going to boil all of those other products too. It’s one pot cooking, essentially.” These days, while corned beef and cabbage has become an iconic meal in the United States around St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll see the meat turn up in a variety of other meals, most commonly year-round in the form of a Reuben sandwich. There are several restaurants and delis in the United States that claim to have invented the Reuben, which Manganello said traditionally consists of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing on Jewish seeded rye bread. But there are many other directions the sandwich can take. Riverside Barbeque Co., for example, serves its Reuben sliced on grilled Texas toast, while New England’s Tap House Grille in Hooksett offers it with shaved corned beef and adds bacon, and T-Bones, with restaurants in Bedford, Salem, Hudson, Derry and Laconia, serves its “Unusual Reuben,” which adds coleslaw and Gouda cheese. You’ll also see corned beef as a breakfast hash on the menu at several area diners, as well as in the form of Reuben egg rolls, and even as a topping for poutine.

made their way into Québec, but Montreal perfected it.” The key to the Montreal smoked meat sandwich, according to Lagueux, is simplicity. The sandwich available on the restaurant’s menu is served on house-made marble rye bread, topped with a pickle spear, with a side of spicy beer mustard. “You’re getting essentially a big pile of meat, and the meat is the main focus, so you’re getting more height than width for a sandwich,” he said. “The Montreal smoked meat is brittle, so you won’t always get slices that are perfect, but we basically pile it all on. … You’ll also see a Montreal smoked meat poutine, which is a common thing up in Québec.” The Montreal smoked meat at Chez

Vachon on Manchester’s West Side was, according to co-owner Robert “B” Perkins, inspired by Schwartz’s Deli. It’s available on the menu in a variety of options, like a sandwich, poutine, a plate with two sides, or you buy it by the pound. “We use the flat side of the brisket, and we cure it by putting it in a salt mixture for seven days to get some of the moisture out of it,” Perkins said. “Then we dry rub it, let it sit for another 48 hours, and smoke it usually anywhere from six to eight hours.” You can order a traditional Montreal smoked meat sandwich on rye with wholegrain mustard or, alternatively, on a six-inch sub roll with grilled onions and Swiss cheese, known as “Linda’s Way,” named after a staff member.

Where to get corned beef, pastrami or Montreal smoked meat This list includes butcheries and restaurants in southern New Hampshire that, according to owners, either brine their own corned beef, smoke their own pastrami or serve house Montreal smoked meat either as sandwiches or lunch plates with sides. Some will only have house-brined corned beef for a limited amount of time; call or visit the website for updates.

ARTS Women on the brain

Milford Area Players perform a Neil Simon dramedy Jake’s character has 579 lines, including seven monologues, some as long as a page and a half, Wood said, but Vick said that challenge is what attracted him to the play. “Jake is on stage for the entire play, participating in every dialogue,” Vick said. “It’s fun to never leave the stage and to never have that time of waiting backstage for your next entrance.” Wood decided on a minimal set, mostly black, with curtains in lieu of walls, a single door frame and only a couple pieces of furniture. The scene changes are done through lighting and sound effects. “I wanted to make it kind of surreal, with the characters in [Jake’s] fantasies coming from nowhere,” he said. “I think it represents Jake’s isolation, even from his family and the people he loves.”

By Angie Sykeny

Women, real and imagined, are at the center of Neil Simon’s 1992 play Jake’s Women, which the Milford Area Players will perform Friday, March 15, through Sunday, March 17, at the Amato Center for the Performing Arts. Set in a New York City apartment in 1990, the play follows Jake, a witty and successful writer in a dissolving marriage, as he contemplates a series of present, past and hypothetical interactions with the women in his life: his revered first wife and the mother of his daughter, Julie, who was killed years earlier in an accident; his daughter, Molly, who is now 21 years old; his bossy and boisterous sister, Karen; his opinionated and condescending psychiatrist, Edith; his current wife, Maggie, who is leaving him for another man; and the woman he is currently dating, Sheila, a prospective third wife. “[Jake] comes to realizations about the problems and issues that he’s had all his life, and that’s basically what the play is about — Jake looking at himself and deciding he wants to try to make a change,” said Chris Vick, the actor playing Jake. Director Mike Wood directed a Nashua Theatre Guild production of the play in 2005 but wanted to give it another go now that he’s a “more seasoned director” with

more than 20 years of theater experience, he said. This time, he’s having the actors do more “tablework,” a process that entails analyzing the script and thinking deeply about the characters and what motivates them to do what they do. “The characters have more depth and are more personal and emotional than [the characters] in a lot of other Neil Simon plays,” Wood said. “They have funny and sarcastic moments, intermixed with moments that are painful or heartwarming, so the tablework

INSIDE/OUTSIDE Battle for good

Firefighters and police officers play hockey for kids By Angie Sykeny

Firefighters and police officers from across New Hampshire will use their friendly rivalry for a good cause during the CHaD Battle of the Badges Hockey Championship on Saturday, March 16, at the SNHU Arena in Manchester. Now in its 12th year, the game has generated more than $2.2 million to benefit the programs and kids at Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock and draws a crowd of 6,000 to 7,000 fans. Last year alone, a record $286,000 was raised. A series of tryouts is held in September and October to determine who will be on the rosters. “Every year we get a wide variety of players, from returning players and players who have played since Day 1, to new players,” event coordinator Tom Gauthier said. The teams practice every month at the arena, starting in November. Players must each raise at least $1,500 to play, which they do through selling sponsorships and tickets to the game and collecting donations. Team Police’s Kyle Daly is currently in the lead, with more than $21,000 raised. Each player is also assigned a “CHaD buddy,” a kid in his community who is or has been a patient at CHaD or benefited from CHaD programs, a few months prior to the game. The players spend time with the kids and their 23 Kiddie pool Family activities this week.

After the game, there will be a trophy presentation for the winning team and a ceremony to honor the three top fundraising players, the top fundraising team and the players who have played for their fifth and 10th years. CHaD fundraisers benefit a variety of programs, including the Child Life Program, which offers families emotional support and provides children with toys and other items that will make them more comfortable; Molly’s Place, a family center with a play area for children and information resources for parents; CHaD Battle of the Badges Hockey Championship.

Dear Donna, I have three paintings by Lou Kerry and was wondering if you might be able to direct me toward an avenue where I can sell them. I have tried researching online to no avail. These paintings have been in my family for years. Any advice would be so helpful and appreciated. Steve Dear Steve, I also did quite a bit of searching for you with pretty much the same results as you. I think where you need to go next would be to a place where they have better access to artists. I would bring them to a place like Skinner in Bolton, Mass., and let them do the research for you to determine a value. Skinner is also an auction house so if the value of the paintings is high enough, they could put them up for sale for you. But some paintings just don’t have a well-known artist and the value would then be determined by the quality of the work and subject.

Beyond bees

A look at the other pollinators By Henry Homeyer


HIPPO | MARCH 14 - 20, 2019 | PAGE 24

When I say “pollinator,” you think bee, right? Honeybee, bumblebee, wild bee. But what about moth, butterfly, beetle or fly? Many of those are pollinators, too. I recently read an interesting article about pollinators by Dan Jaffe and Jane Roy Brown in the Native Plant News, a magazine put out by the New England Wild Flower Society. The authors’ basic premise is that moths and butterflies are the unsung heroes of pollination, and an important part of a balanced ecosystem. Of the 700 or so species of butterflies and moth (Lepidopterans) found east of the Mississippi, 500 species are supported by five native trees: oaks, cherries, willows, birch and poplar or aspen. In comparison, our perennial flower bee balm (which is loved by bees) supports just 11 species of butterflies and moths. I called Dan Jaffe and asked this: what is the value of Lepidopterans to the average gardener? Can’t bees take care of our fruit trees and veggies? Yes, he said, bees are great pollinators, but butterflies and moths feed our baby birds — and birds are great at controlling insect pests and moving seeds around the landscape to create a biologically diverse environment. It works like this, he said. Baby birds need a high-protein diet, so parent birds serve them caterpillars as 95 percent of their diet, even birds that are seed-eaters as adults. If there are no caterpillars, fewer baby birds will survive. And, he noted, our native species of trees are much better at feeding them than introduced decorative species. Many butterflies and moths depend on specific species of plants to survive. Most of us know about monarch butterflies: they only will lay their eggs on milkweed. As adults, however, the monarchs will feed on many flowers, including asters, goldenrod and a variety of other flowers. The endangered Karner blue butterfly depends on sundial lupine (Lupinus perennis) — and will not even feed on other related lupines. Planting to support specific butterflies is a worthy endeavor. Dan Jaffe emphasized to me that planting native species is important: they are trees and shrubs that evolved with our butterflies and moths, so that is what they are programmed to find and eat. Native trees and shrubs provide the leaves needed to feed caterpillars and to make their chrysalises. Pollinators need not just pollen but food and habitat throughout their life cycles. According to the article by Jaffe and Brown, willows are “the unsung heroes of the lepidopteran world.” The native black willow (Salix nigra) supports over 400 different species of butterflies and moths. I planted one 25 years ago near my brook and it is now a fullsized tree, perhaps 35 feet tall and 25 feet

wide. Early on I kept it pruned as a shrub, but I skipped pruning for a couple of years — and it became a tree! I also grow three kinds of pussywillows, including our native one, Salix discolor, which grows wild along my stream. I also grow rosemary willow, a curly willow, and a variegated-leafed, non-native willow (Salix integra “Hakuru nashiki”). All of those have stayed under 20 feet tall and thrive in the sunny moist area near my stream. All my willows are fast-growing and some will spread by root, although the rosemary willow (Salix elaegnos) has not spread. The rosemary willow has leaves that look almost identical to rosemary leaves. I have to admit that, until now, I had never thought of willows as food for caterpillars or adult butterflies. Also mentioned in that article are the cherries. They support some 400 species of butterflies and moths. I have a huge black cherry (Prunus serotina) growing next to my house and overhanging my deck. It was there as a large tree when I bought my house 49 years ago, and is huge now — 60 feet tall or more, and the trunk is 4 to 6 feet in diameter at its base. I see lots of caterpillars on it each summer, and butterflies around it. Still, it is a messy tree dropping berries, leaves and twigs. I wish it were elsewhere on the property, but I won’t cut it down. Choke cherry (Prunus virginiana) is common in disturbed areas as a shrubby volunteer growing in full sun and poor soil. It is often a multi-stemmed shrub that blooms in May or June with small white flowers followed by red berries in July and August. Again, it supports pollinators with nectar, pollen, and leaves to munch on — and birds like the berries, too. One last plant to consider for pollinators and birds is the ordinary blueberry. It has lovely flowers in June, berries we all like later, and colorful leaves in fall. So what if the birds get most of the berries? Consider it your part of supporting a diverse and healthy ecosystem — including some 294 species of butterflies and moths.

Car’s computer thinks Mom’s a thief

Dear Car Talk: When my mother drives her car, the alarm goes off and the theft deterrent light comes on. Then the car will barely run. When this happens, the powBy Ray Magliozzi er steering light, the brake light and even the tire pressure light will come on. She then has to turn the car off, take the key out, open the door and press the unlock button on the remote to get things working again. After doing that, she can restart the car and it will be alright for a while. We took it to get checked out and they couldn’t figure it out. She really needs your help. Thanks. — Mary Well, that’s inconvenient, Mary. Her car thinks she’s stealing it. How sad. After all these years, it doesn’t recognize the hand that fuels it. It sounds like there’s a problem with the theft deterrent system, also known as the immobilizer. It’s activating while the car is being driven for some reason. And when the immobilizer is activated, it’s putting the car into what’s called “limp home mode.” Generally, “limp home mode” is engaged by the car’s computer when there’s a dan-

ger that driving the car at normal speed will do serious damage to the engine or catalytic converter. It prevents the car from going more than a few miles an hour; enough to let you “limp” off the next exit ramp, or home if it’s nearby. The fact that she can “reset” the car by using the remote to unlock the doors tells me it’s definitely a problem with the immobilizer. Unfortunately, on modern cars, the immobilizer is built into the car’s computer. So you can’t simply disconnect the alarm system by cutting a wire, like you could in the old days. That means your dealer is your best bet here. The dealership is most likely to have seen this problem before. And if they haven’t, they’re most likely to know how the system works in your car, and where to start looking. And brace yourself, because it’s not likely to be a simple short in a wire, and may even require a new computer. In the meantime, tell your mother to stop wearing a ski mask when she gets into her car. That may be confusing things. Good luck. Dear Car Talk: I have a 2014 Hyundai Tucson that I bought brand new. It now has 92,000 miles on it. When I went in for my last oil change,

I was told there was no oil in the engine. There are no oil spots underneath my car where I park. Where is it going? What should I do? — Maureen Misery loves company, Maureen, and the good news is that you have a lot of company. Hyundai had a number of problems with engines from this era. There are quite a few reports of engines seizing up due to lack of oil, and your engine could be one of those. So what should you do? Well, the first thing to do is not drive another 8,000 miles. Hyundai offered a 10-year, 100,000-mile power train warranty (which applies only to the original owners) on the 2014 Tucson. They’re about to regret that. As long as you don’t cross that 100,000mile mark, you’re covered. So start by asking the shop that changed your oil to put something in writing confirming that they found the crank case empty (or very low, which is more likely the case). If they’ve changed your oil regularly in the past, have them mention that, too, so Hyundai can’t blame this on your lack of regular maintenance. Then drive over to your Hyundai dealer and tell them your mechanic found the crank case empty. They’ll want to look at the car and see if it’s leaking oil. It’s possible, but since you’ve seen no evidence of a leak, it’s

more likely that the oil is burning and coming out the exhaust pipe as blue-ish smoke. They may want to attempt to fix it for you without replacing the engine. That’s fine. But just keep a close eye on your oil, and keep a record of how much oil you add, and at what mileage. That way, if it’s not fixed, you’ll be able to insist they do more. And as long as the problem has been reported before you cross 100,000 miles, they are obligated to fix it, even if their first (or second or third) attempts fail. It’s possible that Hyundai will own right up to this and replace your engine the first time you come in. Since they’ve replaced so many engines now, they must know there’s a manufacturing or design problem. But it’s good to be prepared in case they don’t do the right thing. So keep good records of your oil loss, be firm but polite and, if necessary, if they try to stonewall you and don’t fix the problem, speak to a lawyer. This is precisely what a warranty is for, Maureen. As long as you didn’t neglect the car or ignore a flashing oil warning light, you’re entitled to have this fixed at no cost to you. Good luck, and let us know what happens. Visit

Hayward’s owner Chris Ordway told The Hippo last year that, unlike its Nashua counterpart, the new Merrimack shop will be open year-round, with around 10 indoor table seats in addition to four outdoor serving windows during the summer months, and it will also have a drive-thru. The menu will have about 30 of Hayward’s most popular ice cream flavors, in addition to several flavors of soft-serve and a limited food menu, including hot dogs.

Several lesser-known brewers will be discussed, including the only brewery owned and operated by a woman before the modern era. Admission is free.

Gourmet food festival returns to Nashua By Matt Ingersoll

443 LAKE AVE. MANCHESTER NH 603.263.4743



delicious food

With a casual cocktail party atmosphere and samples of local beverages and foods — from crab cakes and sushi dishes to pork sliders and pastas — The Front Door Agency’s Gourmet Festival & Auction returns for the 31st year on Sunday, March 24, at the Nashua Country Club. The event features more than 20 local restaurant, beverage and dessert vendors, plus a silent auction and a live auction. According to Sheree Sevigny, corporate relations and special events manager for The Front Door Agency, each restaurant chef and beverage producer will have tables set up for attendees to visit and sample food and drinks from. “People like it because they can actually talk face to face with a chef about the food,” she said, “and then for the restaurants, it’s a way for them to gain exposure and have new people discover them.” Vendors include a combination of longtime participants — like chef Michael Buckley of Michael Timothy’s Dining Group, which owns MT’s Local Kitchen & Wine Bar in Nashua, Buckley’s Great Steaks in Merrimack and Surf in Nashua and Portsmouth — and a few newcomers, like Bite Me Kupcakez out of Merrimack, which specializes in gluten-free baked goods, and Pho Thai Loc, an authentic Vietnamese restaurant that opened in Nashua in November. Sevigny said dishes that have been featured in past events have included different varieties of sushis, risottos, pork sliders, tuna and steak tartare and even lamb meatballs. But you never know what types of foods you’ll come across, as each year’s event proves to be very different in its offerings. This year’s drink vendors include Djinn Spirits of Nashua and the Mainebased Pine State Beverage Co. “For a lot of restaurants, it’s a way for them to experiment with new items,” she said, “so sometimes they do tell us what they bring, and sometimes they don’t.”

In addition to the food sampling, there will be several certificates, prizes and other items available to bid on during both a silent and a live auction. The live auction, which begins at 6 p.m., will feature tickets to see Hamilton on Broadway in New York City, tickets to see Elton John perform at the TD Garden in Boston in November as part of his farewell tour, and a six-night stay in South Africa for a guided photo safari. All proceeds from the event benefit programs at The Front Door Agency, a nonprofit that assists single moms and children in crisis in finding housing and with financial literacy. At the end of the night, a client speaker tells her story about how the organization has helped her. 31st annual Gourmet Festival & Auction When: Sunday, March 24, 4 to 8 p.m. Where: Nashua Country Club, 25 Fairway St., Nashua Cost: $85 per person (buying tickets in advance is recommended, though tickets will be sold at the door if they are still available on the day of the event).

website did her one better with a chart that shows reds and whites go bad sometime within 3 to 6 days. Look for changes in color, smell and, of course, taste. While you can cook with just about any kind of wine if you want to, I was on a mission to finish my pinot noir from Josh Cellars. Pinot noir is a versatile, dry red wine that is quite a crowd-pleaser. White wine drinkers like my husband enjoy it and those who love a deep, full-bodied red like me still love it, too. Since pinot noir is appealing to many, it felt pretty safe as a choice in my cooking. I was very pleased. — Allison Willson Dudas

Roast Chicken with Pinot Noir Sauce Adapted from 3/4 teaspoons dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided (the original recipe called for 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary; I didn’t have any fresh or dried so left it out) 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 1/8 cup all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided 3 tablespoons finely chopped shallots 1 cup pinot noir 3/4 cups lower-sodium chicken broth 1/2 teaspoon sugar 2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces

Heat half the oil in a nonstick pan on medium-high. Add half the chicken, browning each side, about 1½ minutes each side. Repeat the process with the remaining chicken. Place chicken on a pan lined with parchment paper and cook about 12 minutes in the oven. Let sit for 10 minutes. Coat a medium saucepan with cooking spray or a little olive oil. Sauté the shallots for about 30 seconds, stirring the entire time. Add the wine and be sure to scrape the sides to loosen anything stuck on. Bring to boil and cook for 10 minutes; wine will reduce about half. Add broth and cook until it’s all reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 15 minutes (watch carefully and set a timer). Take off heat and stir in the rest of the salt and pepper and add the sugar (I went a little sweet, to be honest). Slowly add butter and stir until it all smoothes out, using a whisk. Pour sauce over chicken and serve.

Since 1927

I found myself in quite a pickle this week. I bought an awesome bottle of pinot noir and then realized I wouldn’t drink it all before we left for a trip. I love to have a glass or two while I’m cooking but don’t drink much on a regular basis. I was feeling really sad about wasting this good bottle of wine when a thought occurred to me: I could cook with it! The old thought process used to be that you could cook with any wine and that the quality didn’t matter. But because whatever you cook with absorbs the flavor of the wine, the new rule is “if you won’t drink it, don’t cook with it.” Bon Appétit online has a great post written by Marissa Ross that examines how long wine will last unopened. She recommends refrigerating wine once opened and re-corking religiously, even between glasses. The more the top is sealed off, the less oxidation will happen. La Crema’s

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Sprinkle half the salt and pepper and all the thyme over the chicken breast. Pour flour into shallow dish and roll chicken in it, coating it.

The ale is a

type of beer known as a kettle sour, which is fermented at a lower pH than most other beer types, giving it a distinct slightly fruity sour flavor. It was officially launched in late January at a craft wine and beer dinner co-hosted by LaBelle and Clapper and is currently available in 603 Brewery’s taproom. “Sangria Sour is a brewery and winery experience in one complete beverage,” Clapper said in the release. “I am very happy with how the beer turned out and [I’m] looking forward to experimenting with different beer and wine collaborations in the future.” Visit

Not sure how this ended up here, but I like it, that is, if “It’s fine, but I wish it were a bit more like Squarepusher” counts as “like.” Records like this may help toward proving conclusively that “drill ‘n’ bass” music did indeed peak 20 years ago with Thomas Russell Jenkinson’s little project, which added distinct melody to its noisy electronic spazziness, but I can’t say for sure; Burial is still around (as far as we know), and it’s not like similar artists could care less about publicity; you really have to look, and who has time for that when there’s Netflix and Discord to eat up every second of your life? Suffice to say that this British person, who goes by the name “Strong,” has totally abandoned his past, during which he made indie records, alt-rock records and even folk records, and gone the way of glitch, his array of Korg circuits spewing forth a dizzying array of android sounds, food-processor-speed breakbeats, and all that stuff. Unlike Jenkinson, however, he can’t seem to settle on a theme, just weirdness for the sake of it. Maybe you have to live with this record for a few months in order to “get it,” but a Twilight Zone binge is on my plate this week, sorry. B- — Eric W. Saeger

If you actually plug yourself into what’s going on in indie Brit-rock — and no one would blame you if you didn’t — you’re probably aware of these two brothers, who “wanted to make music no one else was making,” which, if you think about it, is the best reason not to make it. Apparently inspired by faux-bossa-nova trash-music from 1970s game shows, they released their first album, London, Paris, Tokyo, Space in 2010, which didn’t get much attention until 2015, when their I Don’t Want to Go to Work EP got some international airplay, and they landed a track on the Guiness Book Of Records record-breaking 100X30 Album by The Pocket Gods and Friends (the record broken had to do with song length). Basically if you imagine Flight of the Conchords trying to make the Clash into an elevator music band, that’s these guys; there are smarmy, disgusting horn sections; carefree, jokey lyrics and this time there’s even an industrial intro song.

• On March 15, many albums will be released, like the new one from The Brian Jonestown Massacre, titled The Brian Jonestown Massacre (in other words it’s a self-titled album released after the band has already released 90-whatever albums). We already made fun of Patty Griffin for doing that last week, so there’s no need to discuss the idiocy of bands releasing self-titled albums so many years after their first ones; we can just write it off as A Thing Bands Do These Days and see what these mental-cases are up to. We know how their counterparts are doing these days over at the band The Dandy Warhols, who were also put under a microscope for the 2004 Dig! documentary (they’re OK overall, in short, and everyone’s forgotten about the whole thing), so we can focus on these guys and see what new psychedelic-shoegaze-noise they have to offer on this album, which will be available on vinyl and, if you have an extra $20, cassette tape. So here we have a track I’m assuming you haven’t heard of yet, called “Cannot Be Saved,” which comprises a scary sounding 1960s-Monkees sound except they sound stoned and dangerous. Maybe bandleader Anton Newcombe should just put together a Traffic cover band and live out his wildest dreams. Yay, let’s get out of here. • Pretty sure some PR person was babbling about some krautrock band in my email, and I’ll bet you anything this is them. It’s The Faint, from Omaha, Nebraska, the “city” which, as everyone knows, is the seat of power for all things throwback-electro; the soundsystem contributed the song “Teach Me Teacher” to the children’s show Yo Gabba Gabba back when — you know, when people knew what Yo Gabba Gabba was. Their new full-length is titled Egowerk (see what they did there? It’s like a portmanteau that combines famous krautrock band Kraftwerk with whatever’s on their minds about their egos), and I guess I’m supposed to riff from this point, because Wiki has basically no info about them except they’re from Nebraska. Since I don’t want to riff about krautrock being that I don’t like it, we’ll give the available samples a listen. There’s three, and they all sound like a mixture of Kraftwerk and mostly unknown goth bands like Cesium 137. In other words we can proceed to the next whatever without feeling as though we missed out on anything. • This caught my eye, an album from Karen O and Danger Mouse, called Lux Prima, whatever that’s supposed to mean in Latin-whatever. I mean, Karen O is awesome, a well-established fact, so maybe this will be a step up from his collab with one-tone rapper Jemini, much less the pair-up with Norah Jones, which literally had one good song on it. So, the title track is nine minutes of downbeat boredom, and Karen O doesn’t sing much, and when she does it sounds like she’s trying to be Amy Winehouse. Barf barf barf. • Our last hope this week is nu-jazz sextet The Cinematic Orchestra’s new To Believe album! Ohwait, they do a lot of improv live, except to make things worse, they add “electronic,” which means “a guy with a synth” (has anyone used that label in 15 years?). The single, “To Believe” features Moses Sumney doing a Simon & Garfunkel imitation; it’s music to bury your hamster to. What a hopeless week. — Eric W. Saeger

The Elephant in the Room: One Fat Man’s Quest to Get Smaller in a Growing America, by Tommy Tomlinson (Simon and Schuster) The Elephant in the Room, written by journalist Tommy Tomlinson, is a gut-punching account of an overweight American man trying to come to grips with his obesity in a society that both hates overweight people and, at the same time, offers opportunities to get fatter at every corner. Tomlinson is a smart guy but can’t really understand why he is so overweight. When his health becomes jeopardized he realizes that he has to do something about it or he is going to die. Thus begins a year-long quest to lose weight while analyzing his behavior and beliefs. He also takes a good hard look at America’s obsession with food. What makes this memoir so powerful is that Tomlinson does not play the victim. He owns his behavior and his weight while at the same time despising everything about them. He recounts growing up with two parents who had longed for a child, and when he arrived, they never said no and gave him anything he wanted. He points to that as the beginning of his inability to self-regulate. Tomlinson talks about not fitting into clothes, about having to scout rooms to find the sturdiest chairs, and about his addiction to food (especially fast food, which just makes him feel soooo good.) He also writes about the impact of being an outcast because of his weight and the loneliness that obesity sentences him to, about being confined to a dorm room while his friends were out socializing, about the insults hurled at him simply for being who he is — a deeply flawed person. A human being with a problem. With healthy doses of introspection and humor (yes, Tomlinson is a very funny guy) the author strips his weight struggle bare. He talks about the health consequences of being overweight (each burger is an arrow pointed at his heart), the challenges in trying to address it (people don’t want to feel sorry for overweight people; they want to blame them, he says), and finally Tomlinson figures out in a bit of a psychological breakthrough that this is his journey and one that he and he alone will need to both unravel and travel. It takes courage to write a memoir like this. Although Tomlinson has a good sense of humor, there are some stories about his morbid obesity that will make you cringe and ask, how can peo-

ple be that cruel? And you will also ask, if he knew he was in trouble at an early age, why couldn’t he have modified his behavior? But then that’s addiction in a nutshell, isn’t it? Whether it’s food or drugs, addiction grabs you and simply doesn’t let you go. Addiction doesn’t make sense; it just destroys. Tomlinson takes us through his marriage (writing many times that he is the luckiest person on earth to have someone marry him) and the problems that being obese bring to that arena. “I cheat on my wife with a redhead named Wendy. Her place is just a couple of miles from our house. She’s always smiling when I pull up. She gives me exactly what I want. Every time I leave, I swear I won’t some back. I keep coming back. Wendy is my favorite, but she’s not my only one. Sometimes I go across town for a quickie with a guy in a clown suit named Ronald.” If you are looking for one of those magazine stories where there’s a before photo of an obese person and an after photo with an incredibly fit person, you’re not going to find it here. Instead you will find an insightful reflection on obesity and its role in society. After the year of trying to lose weight, Tomlinson does have moderate success but he by no means becomes magazine svelte. You get the impression that he is a work in progress and that his addiction is something he will have to focus on for the rest of his life. However, by the end of the story, you will be inspired because even some success is a success. You realize that Tomlinson has, in the telling of this story, unlocked some barriers and you will cheer him on. Because if there’s a start, then there can be a finish. The Elephant in the Room is an insightful, painful, humorous and inspiring story of a fat man being brutally honest with himself. It’s a true eye-opener into a growing and persistent problem in our society. After reading this account, I’m not sure you will look at a morbidly obese person ever again without considering the struggle they have just trying to function in a world that almost universally hates them.

Vers eventually learns was her name on Earth. Captain Marvel can be quite unsubtle — a scene toward the end of the movie has shades of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer finale and a No Doubt song is used in a way that is pretty on-the-nose. But it works. I got a little choked up during the Buffy-ish scene and let out an involuntary “yay!” during the No Doubt song. Captain Marvel is more text than subtext but the text, emotional and direct though it may be, works with the story and the characters. Captain Marvel is no Black Panther in terms of what it achieves, but it does remind me of Black Panther with the way it posits a kind of “what if” that it uses to examine real-world issues. (In this case, I think one of the “what if”s is something like: “what if a woman’s default setting was total confidence in her abilities and her heroism, a stance reinforced by her society.”)

Vers (Brie Larson) is on a Starforce squad, the military arm of the Kree Empire, which Wikipedia confirms was a thing in Guardians of the Galaxy, which is the extent of my very vague memory of them and of Korath (Djimon Hounsou), who serves with Vers, and Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), who also shows up later in the movie. Vers is under the command of Yon-Rogg (Jude Law), who appears to be both a mentor and a friend. Vers had some kind of accident six years ago and has no memory of her life before, only wisps of images in dreams. But Yon-Rogg nonetheless encourages her to be the “best version” of herself and she is clearly a solid member of the squad. And she has these nifty glow-hands that can shoot explodey light beams, which is super useful during a fight. The squad is sent to search for an intelligence agent held hostage by the Skrulls, a shape-shifting people labeled by the Kree as terrorists. Vers nearly makes the rescue, but then she is trapped by the Skrulls, who hook her to a machine that allows them to root around in her memories, showing her things — moments of her childhood, military training, time spent flying fighter jets — she doesn’t remember. Most notably, these things take place on Earth, a planet she didn’t realize she was from, and the woman, Dr. Lawson (Annette Bening), that Vers has been seeing in her dreams is significant to the Skrulls as well. They go in search of Lawson and Vers follows them — right down to Earth, where she crash-

The movie also does a bunch of things with how it constructed the story and characters that I really liked: It does not feel the need to wedge in a love story. It gives us a core duo in Larson and Jackson with strong buddy-cop-movie chemistry. It deftly mixes humor and earnestness. It riffs on the ideas of what makes a hero, giving us moments when Vers almost reminded me of Thor and others when the character tapped into a Captain America/Steve Rogers vibe. And this movie has an excellent soundtrack — so much 1990s! You could argue that I am not being objective with this movie, that I was in the tank for it from the beginning and it would have had to be a real stinker for me to dislike it. And you would be totally correct. I am predisposed to like this movie, I went in hoping to have a good time, with general excitement both about this specific character and Marvel films (which have had a really strong run for the last two years, with maybe as many as four years of films that are mostly better than average). But I don’t think that diminishes my opinion that Captain Marvel is a really solid entry in the MCU and it is a really fun movie — not transcendent, like Black Panther, not gleefully perfect in its execution, like Thor: Ragnarok. But really fun, quite good, well worth your theater-going dollars. B+ Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and brief suggestive language, according to the MPAA. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck with a screenplay by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck & Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel is two hours and four minutes long and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

NITE Seeing double green Local music news & events

By Michael Witthaus

• Mellow fellow: Starting with the Michael McDonald-aided hit “Ride Like the Wind,” Christopher Cross was a fixture on laidback radio in the late ’70s and early ’80s. His song “Sailing” is Patient Zero for what’s now known as yacht rock, and “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” was the best thing about that movie. MTV slowed his ascent, but the man can still sing. Thursday, March 14, 8 p.m., Tupelo Music Hall, 10 A St. Derry. Tickets $45 and up at • Roots stalwarts: The Side Door Series continues at The Currier with The Mammals, folk rockers connected to the genre’s earliest days. Last year, the band, led by the husbandand-wife team of Ruth Ungar and Mike Merenda, released the infectiously upbeat Sunshiner, their first new album in a dozen years. Folk Alley called the effort “an energetic burst of light.” Friday, March 15, 6 p.m., Currier Museum of Art, 150 Ash St., Manchester. Tickets $25 ($30 at the door). See • Story songs: Celebrating his new solo album Lost City, Andrew North & the Rangers perform in Concord. The singer-songwriter describes the record as a personal retrospective “covering 15 years of creativity, change, loss and wanderlust” — and nine-year hiatus from music — boiled down to 30 minutes and six songs. Think of it as Grade A maple syrup music from the piano man. Saturday, March 16, 8 p.m., Penuche’s Ale House, Concord. Stream the record at • New digs: After months of maddening delays, Lenny Clarke helps launch a downtown comedy showroom that seats 160 and promises some big names in the coming months. Now there’s a dedicated home for hilarity, with shows shuttled from room to room no more. Clarke is well known for his Uncle Teddy role in Rescue Me and an eponymous early ’90s series. Friday, March 15, 8 p.m., Headliners Comedy Club, 700 Elm St., Manchester. Tickets are $30 at • Woman’s day: After working in bands around Boston for a while, Wyn Doran began playing solo. See her at a Nashua listening room that served as an open-mike incubator for her back in the day, as she shares the stage with Gentle Temper and Fruity. Doran, who worked with indie musician Ben Folds during a recent California retreat, just released “Places Unknown,” a rousing tale of empowerment. Wednesday, March 20, 7 p.m., Riverwalk Cafe, 35 Railroad Square, Nashua. See Want more ideas for a fun night out?

Legal shenanigans

San Juan County (Washington) Sheriff Ron Krebs is on the hot seat after Superior Court Judge Kathryn Loring accidentally discovered a disturbing video. On Jan. 31, Loring was sitting at the desk of the court administrator when she noticed video from a courthouse camera on the computer screen. As she watched, the camera panned and zoomed in on the jury box and counsel tables — settling on Juror No. 3’s notes and a legal pad belonging to Public Defender Colleen Kenimond — right in the middle of a misdemeanor assault and trespassing trial for Lopez Island resident Dustin Schible. According to the Seattle Times, Loring alerted Superior Court Judge Donald Eaton to the video, and Eaton dismissed the charges against Schible, citing government misconduct. Krebs, who controls the cameras, said he was concerned about the defendant, who had threatened to stab a Lopez Island grocer. He claimed he didn’t pass on anything he saw with the camera, and County Prosecutor Randall Gaylord said no one in his office received any information from Krebs. “We are independently elected officials,” Gaylord said, distancing himself from Krebs.

• The long, harsh winter must be getting to folks in Muskego, Wisconsin, to wit: Police were called to a home on Feb. 22 after “a big teddy bear” was reported to be at a neighbor’s front door. As it turned out, the human-sized panda — not native to the Badger State — was a 48-year-old man who had been asked to check on the dogs and thought it would be funny to prank his neighbors through their security system. “I knew my neighbors had cameras, and I thought I was going to make the ordinary extraordinary and dress up in the panda suit,”

the unnamed man told CBS 58. Apparently he has also picked his daughter up at school and met her at the bus stop in the suit (pandas are her favorite animal). • Neighbors of Michal Prasek, 33, of Zdechov, Czech Republic, were rightly concerned about the animals living on his property. In 2016, Prasek bought a full-grown lion, and two years later added a lioness, for breeding purposes. He built enclosures for them, defying government regulations, and would not allow authorities onto his property to investigate. BBC News reported on March 5 that Prasek’s project had met a tragic end: He was discovered by his father in the lion’s cage, mauled to death. The father said the cage had been locked from the inside. Police who were called to the scene killed the two lions in order to reach Prasek’s body. Presumably grasping for a silver lining, Zdechov Mayor Tomas Kocourek commented: “Today’s incident will perhaps finally help to resolve this long-term problem.” Cold, dude. • Judith Streng and her son, Rod, traveled to Iceland in February, where they visited Diamond Beach, in Jokulsarlon. The tourist attraction features huge chunks of ice that have broken off a nearby glacier. The Texas grandma saw other visitors having their pictures taken on a beached iceberg that was shaped like a throne, so she climbed aboard for her turn. That’s when a “sneaker wave” swept in and took Streng out into the lagoon. “A very large wave came in and kind of made the throne kind of rock,” she told ABC News. Streng was rescued by a boater, Randy Lacount of Florida, who happened to be nearby when she drifted away from shore. “You know I always wanted to be queen,” Streng said. “That was my chance.” Visit
