There’s just not enough space in the paper to fit the thousands of listings, events and happenings that we have in our database, and though the paper is a great way to highlight some events, it’s not searchable. It has its limits. So we took all of our listings, thousands and thousands of things to do, and created an app and website that Hippo readers can use to search our huge database of things to do and places to go. We call it HippoScout and it’s available for Apple and Android smartphones as an app (find them in the app stores) or online at hipposcount.com as a website. It uses your location to help find events that best fit your needs. You can choose to find activities through location, time and category (or a mix of all three). This means if you’re heading to Portsmouth for the day, you can see all the music, food, festivals, fairs, nightlife and cultural happenings before you even get there. If you’re staying around the house for the weekend, you can also just search for kids’ activities within a 5-mile radius of your phone or your town. It’s the first and only app like this in the state — and we’re adding new things every day. It really shows how many great things are happening all across the state. Speaking of the unique things, the news that Keene is closing its famous pumpkin festival is sad. The event brought thousands of people into Keene and was really a nice family outing. Some used it as an excuse to hold a huge party with lots of drinking. Last year, the crowds clashed with police and the town had had enough. We’re seeing similar things happen at spring break destinations. And those towns are also cracking down. Several other towns have contacted the event organizers to see if they can move the festival to Nashua or Claremont, but the festival is a unique Keene event. Before moving it, the city of Keene and the festival organizers should see if they can re-make the festival back into the family event I remember taking my family to. This might mean something as simple as moving the event to another location from downtown (away from the college). Laconia faced similar issues with bike week and was able to make substantial changes (reducing the more rowdy element) and still keep the event and all the good apples with it. I’m sure Keene has the creativity to come up with some solutions.

NEWS & NOTES Primary events
Nashua’s Crowne Plaza was the political center of gravity for a two-day event that attracted 19 Republican candidates and potential candidates for the 2016 presidential race, NHPR reported. Official candidates like Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, plus relative unknowns like former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore came to test their talking points and set themselves apart from the crowded field at the Republican Leadership Summit on April 17 and 18. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was already in the state for a town hall meeting a few days before the conference, where he pitched entitlement reforms and touted his own candor as a differentiator. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush headlined a Politics and Eggs breakfast at Saint Anselm’s Institute of Politics the same morning the summit kicked off, where he tried to set himself apart from his brother and father. Also in attendance at the leadership summit was South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, Texas Governor Rick Perry, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, businessman Donald Trump and the sole female in the Republican field: former HP CEO Carly Fiorina. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton made her first visits to the Granite State since announcing her candidacy with a business tour in Keene April 20 and a roundtable at NHTI in Concord April 21.
Jeff Rose, the commissioner of the Department of Resources and Economic Development, has given a conditional green light to the Mount Sunapee master development plan, NHPR reported. The plan would expand an area called the West Bowl with six new trails, a new chairlift and a parking lot. An earlier report by the New Hampshire Natural Heritage Bureau identified an area of forest slated for some clearcutting as an “exemplary natural community” with trees as old as 150 years old, but not old enough to be considered “old growth.” HIPPO | APRIL 23 - 29, 2015 | PAGE 4
In an effort to reduce the impact on the forest, Rose proposed narrowing the cutting area for the chairlift and mitigating the overall impact by having the Mount Sunapee Ski Resort donate 150 acres of privately-owned land to the state, and another 260 acres to the state park. Rose also proposed adding 10 years to the ski operator’s 40-year lease of state park land. There is a 50 day public comment period and a hearing at the mountain in May.
The Chinese company Ninebot has acquired Segway and will make it a subsidiary. Ninebot makes similar short-distance, personal vehicles and the two companies were at odds last November when Segway asked the U.S. International Trade Commission to investigate whether Chinese companies like Ninebot were using Segway’s patents illegally. NHPR reported that Segway’s CEO Rod Keller said Segway will continue manufacturing in New Hampshire and keep its headquarters in Bedford. Keller also said the deal gives Segway access to Chinese markets and enables a wider range of transports be sold in the U.S., some less expensive than Segway’s traditional models.
A bill that has cleared both the New Hampshire House and Senate and is expected to be signed by the governor will make New Hampshire the first state to repeal laws allowing employers to pay below minimum wage to people with disabilities. NHPR reported the bill would also do away with sheltered workshops, or workspaces set up for people with disabilities. After investigating, the state found that no businesses in New Hampshire paid below minimum wage under the disability provision. There are up to 420,000 cases nationwide, according to a report by the National Council on Disability.

frat. The AP reported the Alpha Delta fraternity which was suspended for drinking violations and more recently for branding pledges on their buttocks is appealing a decision by the campus judiciary committee to end its recognition as a student organization. The fraternity’s lawyer called the punishment “disproportionate.”
After years of wrangling over a liquor warehousing and distribution contract for New Hampshire’s liquor outlets, the state will pay a $2.5 million settlement to Law Warehouses of Nashua. The AP reported Law Warehouses, now Law Logistics, had the previous contract to store and ship for the state Liquor Commission for decades. The commission awarded the current contract to Excel Inc. of Ohio and Law Warehouses sued over what it said was a violation of the bidding procedures by allowing the Ohio company to bypass certain requirements. The contract was worth $200 million.
The House approved a bill that previously passed the Senate to require medical marijuana dispensaries to pay local property taxes through a payment in lieu of taxes.

A different amendment expected from Democratic Leader Jeff Woodburn to give a failed effort to name the red-tailed hawk the state raptor a second chance was not included.
Many New Hampshire residents who have elected not to enroll for health insurance are bracing themselves for a potentially painful tax penalty, NHPR reported. There are about 100,000 people in the state without health insurance and this year they will need to pay either $95 or 1 percent of their income, whichever is greater. And people who enrolled on healthcare.gov with federal subsidies but underestimated their income are paying on average $530, according to H&R Block. That’s affecting slightly more than half of those taking advantage of the subsidy

Beer label regulations
Bill would ease restrictions on process brewers find arbitrary Ryan Lessard
When you crack open a bottle of beer, you probably never give a second thought to how the label came to be designed. Right now, the law prohibits any images of minors on beer labels. A bill that passed the House and was amended by the Senate would do away with that explicit prohibition and instead would give the New Hampshire Liquor Commission the latitude to judge whether a label is designed to entice youngsters to drink alcohol. If the Liquor Commission finds that it is, the Commission bans it.
More beer for NH
Republican Rep. Keith Murphy of Bedford is the proprietor of Murphy’s Taproom in Manchester. He sponsored the bill, which he said is more true to the spirit of the law’s original intent. “Generally speaking, there’s a lot of great beer out there that doesn’t come to New Hampshire. Our citizens can’t get some really great beer because … there [are] very burdensome requirements for admitting beer in the marketplace,” Murphy said. There was a similar bill that was proposed in the last term but it failed to get through the Senate. Murphy said it’s probably because it was too far-reaching. “I simplified it a great deal this term,” Murphy said. It made national news when Founder’s Breakfast Stout couldn’t be sold in bottles in New Hampshire because the label had the image of a boy eating a bowl of oatmeal. Murphy thinks few would agree that the image was in any way enticing to minors. As for Murphy’s motives, some have accused him of serving his own interest as a bar owner. “If anything, I’m working against my own interests because I currently can sell Founders Breakfast Stout on tap, but my friends at the local beer stores can’t sell it in a bottle,” Murphy said. “So the bill that I submitted ends my small monopoly on this product.”
The commission’s take
But the Liquor Commission spoke against the bill in the House committee hearing. James Wilson, the director of enforcement and licensing for the Liquor Commission, declined to be interviewed but emailed a statement to the Hippo. “[The change] would open [the law] up to interpretation and create unnecessary HIPPO | APRIL 23 - 29, 2015 | PAGE 6

layers of oversight,” Wilson said. He also said it would “bog down an already time-consuming process for manufacturers and the Liquor Commission.” Murphy said the change is common sense and is puzzled by the Liquor Commission’s position. “I’ve never seen an agency argue against giving itself more power. That was a first for me,” Murphy said. “Normally agencies love more power.” In the long run, Murphy isn’t worried about the bill becoming law. He said governors rarely use their veto power for an issue as small as this one.
This bill will not change anything in terms of how brewers start the labelapproval process. Erik Olsen, co-founder of Kelsen Brewing Company in Derry, said his company works with a freelance artist to design its beer bottle labels. The artwork generally consists of comic-book-style illustrations of Viking warriors wielding steins or battle axes. “We give him a story behind the label, give him a pencil sketch of what we’re thinking and go through iterations of designs with him until we’re happy with the final product,” Olsen said. “And that’s
really just the very beginning of a long process.” Olsen then submits everything to the federal Tax and Trade Bureau for review. “That’s usually about an 18-day process… from start to when we get any response at all,” Olsen said. Once it’s approved, they receive a Certificate of Label Approval, or COLA. “We had one beer get denied. It was going to be in honor of Derry. We were going to name it ‘Freedom 7,’ which was the mission that Neil Armstrong was on,” Olsen said. The TTB — which a Daily Beast article revealed last year consists of an eccentric man named Kent “Battle” Martin who personally reviews every beer label in the country — told Olsen they couldn’t use the name because they would need NASA approval. “That wasn’t going to happen,” Olsen said. “We just changed the name to ‘Spacetown,’ which is kind of a nickname for Derry.” Carl Soderberg, a co-founder of Able Ebenezer, a new brewery in Merrimack, said he has experienced longer wait times for federal label approval. “It’s like a minimum 90-day process to get labels approved,” Soderberg said. And they haven’t begun selling bottles or
cans. That’s just for keg collar labels. “We do have plans to go to canning, and when we do, we will have to submit the artwork that we want to put on the can to both the federal government and the state for approval,” Soderberg said. “I’m not entirely sure what the criteria [are] for all the imagery… We basically submit and get informed after the fact whether or not we’re good to go.”
When the state steps in
Until now, getting the state’s approval has been a simple process when the brewers show their federal approval, if they have it. But Olsen has run into issues with beers that have higher alcohol-by-volume levels. The Liquor Commission needs to sample any beer with 12 percent or higher ABV, and anything higher than 16 percent doesn’t qualify as beer as far as the state is concerned. “Right now, we’re talking with local artists about starting to draw up images and designs that we’d want to use as part of the brand,” Soderberg said. “I would like to think that we can do pretty much whatever we want aside from being overtly offensive. But I’m not entirely sure how the Liquor Commission determines what is or isn’t acceptable — except for, of course, having a kid on the label.”
Goffstown considers hold time on secondhand goods
Closing the donut hole
Goffstown Police Chief Robert Browne, who helped craft the ordinance, said this problem wasn’t on his radar when he was sworn in to the position last year. “This came from my detectives who were continually being sent to a store in our town to recover property that was stolen, either in our jurisdiction or elsewhere,” Browne said. Goffstown was one of the only communities left in the area with no rules requiring pawn shops and secondhand dealers to hold on to their goods for a set period of time and submit inventory and seller data to police on a regular basis. That makes it easier for thieves and burglars to turn their ill-gained property into cash without being caught. Browne said his detectives first caught wind of the disparity in ordinances during a multijurisdictional info sharing meeting. “Everybody around us — Bedford, Hooksett, Manchester, Londonderry, Derry, Salem — all of the places that have retail, commercial businesses [have] a pawnbroker and secondhand dealer ordinance,” Brown said. “We were the ones that didn’t.” This not only made it less likely for property stolen in Goffstown to be recovered, it also meant it was attracting a criminal element from Manchester and other nearby towns, according to Browne. He said property crime is up 25 percent in Goffstown. When investigators in Goffstown and elsewhere were asking confidential informants where the stolen property was going, many of them pointed to one particular store. “We found out that we had a specific place in town that was actually purchasing a lot of it,” Browne said. He hopes the new regulations would help put an end to that activity and prevent other pawnbrokers who deal with stolen goods from moving into town. But Browne doesn’t want to inadver-
Too burdensome for businesses?
Browne modeled the Goffstown draft ordinance after the ordinance in Manchester, which has been in force since August 2012. But there are a few differences. For one, the hold time in Manchester is 30 days, while the proposed prohibition period on reselling for Goffstown would be 21 days. Secondly, Manchester has the city’s secondhand business owners electronically file their information to the LeadsOnline database directly. This replaced a system in which a community police officer would visit the businesses weekly to pick up a shoebox of paper forms and hand them all to an individual in the police station who would then enter it into a database. Goffstown’s rule would have shop owners fill out the paper forms and send them to the police within 48 hours of the transaction. During the hearing on April 13, Goffstown state Rep. John Burt told council members the ordinance sends a negative message to businesses considering setting up in town. “Goffstown is known to be anti-business,” Burt told the Hippo. “This will be just one more ordinance that will tell prospective businesses that.” “I think [Goffstown police] should protect the homeowner, but I don’t think this ordinance will do it,” Burt said. “I’ve talked to a lot of businesses in Manchester and they said [the ordinance there] is a disaster.” One of the most controversial elements of the Manchester ordinance is how the department pays for the $30,000 database, which scales its price by the population. In Manchester, pawnbrokers and secondhand dealers must pay a dollar per transaction to the police department. Mark Tripoli, the owner of Manchester Pawn, said it was the first pawn shop to open in the city in 1992. By and large, Tripoli said his business is unaffected by the rule, but he can see how some with cashflow problems might be. He estimated he sends about $300 a month to the police. “That bill, I could pay phone and Inter8 net with that money,” Tripoli said.

Goffstown officials are weighing whether to pass a new ordinance requiring pawn shops and secondhand dealers to hold on to their goods for 21 days and regularly submit inventory and seller data to police. It’s an effort to cut down on property crime, but some are worried about the negative impact on the town’s business.

7 A secondhand shop owner, Albert “AJ” Evarts is the pop in his mom-andpop store, LevelUp Gaming. He owns the vintage video game store with his wife, Bridget. Evarts’ store was originally located in Manchester but after five years he moved it to Goffstown a few months ago because the dollar-per-transaction fee was too cost-prohibitive in a business that buys products for as low as 50 cents. “That’s fine for like Best Buy and GameStop. For a small mom-and-pop, it could add up to a whole other rent per month,” Evarts said. Plus, he estimates the paperwork adds about two or three hours of work every day. And if the Goffstown ordinance is adopted as it’s currently written, Evarts would have to pay an annual $250 licensing fee and be subject to fines up to $1,000 for violations. “[Buying] 100 Atari games, you might mess one or two up. Is that going to cost me $1,000 or is it not?” Evarts said. Evarts started a petition to have an exemption added for his business on Change.org and at time of printing there were more than 140 signatures. Other business owners who would be affected if the rules change include Chris and Beverly Powden, who own Powden Jewelers. They argued at the hearing that since they don’t resell jewelry — they repurpose it — their business should fall into a different category. Manchester’s Assistant Police Chief Nick Willard, a Goffstown resident, also attended the hearing. He said that after hearing some of the concerns people like the Evartses and the Powdens have, he’d consider proposing exemptions in Manchester for consignment shops, antique
shops and niche market stores. Browne said there’s still ample opportunity to amend the proposed ordinance with similar exemptions in Goffstown. Right now, the only exemptions in Manchester are for used clothes, books, furniture and automobiles.
Manchester police: It works
Meanwhile, police officers like Detective David Dupont of the Manchester Police Department, who works with the LeadsOnline database every day, say there’s no doubt this system works. Dupont said he was in charge of the burglary unit when they first adopted the program in 2012. “So, I was doing a lot of pawn searches on there,” Dupont said. He estimated there’s been an 80-percent improvement in finding stolen property in the past few years. Dupont recalled one example in Portsmouth where a pharmaceutical company reported a theft of $144,000 worth of property. A Portsmouth detective noticed some of the product was selling on eBay by a local pawnbroker and being shipped from Manchester, so he called Dupont. Dupont did a search on LeadsOnline. “And lo and behold, it’s here in Manchester and we were able to find that ... and, out of the $144,000, we were able to recover about $135,000 worth of stuff,” Dupont said. And Dupont said even if a stolen item hasn’t been logged into the database when they first search for it, that search is saved and it creates an alert if it gets added later. A second public hearing on the proposed Goffstown ordinance is scheduled for April 27 at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
NEWS & NOTES Q&A
Manitonquat tells his story The name on his passport is Francis Story Talbot, but he’s better known by his Wampanoag name, Manitonquat, or Medicine Story. As a keeper of native lore and an author of several books, including his newest, The Joy of Caring for Children in the Circle Way, Manitonquat is more active than your typical octogenarian Granite Stater. His work is the basis for a weekly inmate program in the New Hampshire State Prison for Men. Manitonquat is poised to leave for a tour of Europe, where his work is very popular, with stops in Ireland, Germany, Italy and more. He lives in Greenville, where he used to live as part of a commune he co-founded in 1978. The commune ended shortly after a fire in the late 1990s left its main building unlivable. Can you tell me a little bit about your past work? I started out in the theater. I had a whole career there for about 12 years in New York, produced a number of plays that I had written and directed with my own little group off Broadway, and I was very happy. But I changed all that when I realized that the world was in terrible shape ... and I just couldn’t keep up doing something like enjoying myself without understanding more about what we should be doing to get the world out of the mess it’s in. So, I eventually found the elders all over North America and I got involved with “Akwesasne Notes,” which was the native journal of the Mohawk, and learned a lot more about the native perspectives and the traditional ways. I put all that together and I found that people wanted to hear Indian stories, so I started off with a career in storytelling. … In going around, telling stories and talking about the Indian spiritual ways and so forth, somebody in my audience wanted me to come to Europe in 1984. My whole career took a big change then because I found in Europe everybody was eager to hear about the old ways of the native people. In looking at some of the titles of your books, it seems you focus a lot on trying to solve the problem of human violence. Do you see the spirituality of native peoples as being a sort of remedy for that? Yes I do. What I heard from them, from the elders, is that we’ve gotten off of the path. There were many different spiritual leaders in those days who were talking about the original instructions, the sacred path and so forth, that human beings were supposed to be on. That made a lot of sense to me. If people really did live that way, then we would [not be] in the mess we’re in. We would be taking care of Five favorites Favorite Book: The Collected Works of William Shakespeare Favorite Movie: Citizen Kane Favorite Musician: Johann Sebastian Bach Favorite Food: Seafood, especially shellfish Favorite thing about NH: Mountains, forests, lakes, rivers, streams, wild animals and independent people.
the earth and taking care of each other. If you could sum up in a few sentences what the key differences are, either in the culture or belief system, Manitonquat. Carrie Branovan that make a betphoto. ter society, what would they be? This new book I just finished reading, this guy is so clear and so simple and I’ve been trying for so many years to get that clear and that simple about it and he’s got it. His name is David Korten and he’s one of the founders of YES! Magazine. He wrote a book that just came out called Change the Story, Change the Future. And he’s saying we live in a story, all of us, that is a story of individualism, of competition, of materialism. It grew out of another, older story of God telling us what to do and so forth. … It created a terrible world. … It doesn’t make sense for us to live together and hurt each other. It doesn’t make sense for us to live on the earth and hurt the earth, which is supporting us. What he proposes is we need to look at the story we’re living and understand ... that everything is connected. We’re all part of a community. Your past work has mostly been nonfiction but I understand you’re currently working on a novel? Yeah, I’m working on a novel now, which is called Storyteller. I’m thinking the subtitle might be “The meaning of life.” It’s a story about a man not too far different from my own background, but different. It’s fiction. The story is a hero’s journey of trying to find himself. He’s mixed blood. He finally winds up hearing from the native elders, as I did. [He is] finding his path and finding what makes meaning for him in life. I had started on a few novels and given them up, but this one seems like the really important one for me to get out — if I live long enough, because it seems like it’s a lot of work. I’m still sketching and making notes and I can see the road ahead is very long. — Ryan Lessard
The Facts About Food Allergies Eating from the inside out. Join us for a free Food Allergy Education Night
Thursday, May 14, 6-7:30 PM Dartmouth-Hitchcock Manchester 100 Hitchcock Way, Manchester, NH The week of May 10 is Food Allergy Awareness week! Do you, a family member, or a friend suffer from food allergies? Food allergy affects an estimated 6-8% of children under age three and up to 3% of adults and is an immune system reaction that occurs soon after eating a certain food. Even a tiny amount of the allergy-causing food can trigger signs and symptoms such as digestive problems, hives or swollen airways. In some people, a food allergy can cause severe symptoms or even a lifethreatening reaction known as anaphylaxis. Join Dr. Marie-Helene Sajous, Allergist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Bedford, as she discusses common food allergens and how they occur, how to differentiate food allergy from other food reactions, and the role of genetics. Dr. Sajous will be speaking about signs and symptoms, management, and prognosis. Register today - visit dartmouth-hitchcock.org and click on Classes & Events, or call (603) 302-1633.

Researchers at UC Berkeley released a report that places New Hampshire first in the share of public assistance dollars that go to working families, the Union Leader reported. According to the study, 65 percent of the $160 million state taxpayers set aside for Medicaid and welfare goes to working families. New Hampshire was ranked fourth for federal assistance dollars. While New Hampshire has low poverty and unemployment rates, this points to a large number of people who work for very low wages and high housing costs. QOL Score: -1 Comment: The report covered a period between 2009 and 2011, when the country was still in a recession.

Unemployment rate remains low
New Hampshire’s adjusted unemployment rate for March remained at 3.9 percent, the same rate it had in February. But more jobs were added and more residents became employed. NHPR reported New Hampshire Employment Security is saying a growth in the labor force, attributed to people who had stopped job searching getting back into the search, has resulted in more job opportunities. QOL Score: +1 Comment: NH’s jobless rate was about 3.9 before the recession. It’s also lower than the national rate of 5.5, which also remained unchanged in March.

State prison officials are prohibiting inmates from receiving greeting cards, decorative postcards or stationary with drawings and stickers, according to an NHPR report. The new policy means to clamp down on the influx of drugs. Efforts to smuggle hard-to-detect drugs, like suboxone (which is sold as a thin film and can be concealed by stamps/ decorations) have reportedly increased, so inmates can now only receive mail with plain stationary and/or postcards whose content is written in pencil or ink. QOL Score: -1 Comment: It only takes one decorative drug postcard to ruin it for everyone.

Even after a Game 1 when the Cavaliers toyed with the spunky Celtics a bit in the second half, it turns out they are not the biggest underdog on the national sports landscape this week after all. That stopped after the game when news broke that with his re-emergence in Philly Tim Tebow is back. I suspect there are even fewer people on the planet who think he’ll make it in Philadelphia than join Mike Gorman in thinking the Celtics will take out the Cavs. Making it all the more interesting is the local angle, as not one but two Manchester alumni figure in this story. First is his new coach, Chip Kelly, who continues his highly unusual off season filled with the kind of moves that could get him fired in the most unforgiving sports city in America if they don’t work, or could earn him in In Bill We Trust-type power if they do. The other is Quarterback Coach Ryan Day, where the Manchester Central and UNH alum has a most interesting (many would say daunting) project in his first season in the NFL. This is good news for Tebow. Unlike in New England, the Eagles have no dominant figure at QB, and Kelly is mad scientist enough to go against the grain of traditional thinking to invent ways to take advantage of what Tebow is (a winner) rather than focus on what’s he’s not (a pocket passer). I don’t know if it’ll work, but it’ll be interesting to watch it unfold. Now for a few more random thoughts on what’s going on as spring finally arrives after our brutal winter. With diplomatic relations being restored with Castro’s Cuba, is Ozzie Guillen’s exile from baseball for his “Castro – I love that guy” comment while manager of the Marlins about to end as well? The latest example that Boston’s media is filled with panic-ridden, under-the-desk-
in-the-fetal-position crazies is the Globe’s baseball newbie Alex Speier writing that “Xander Bogaerts’ struggles are hard to overlook” TWO games into the season. TWO! And then right on cue he had five hits in the next two games and a game-winning walk-off on Friday to get him to .395 overall. I have a question about Bo Ryan’s smug dig at Duke about one-and-done players. Is it that he doesn’t do “rent a players,” as he called them, or do they just not want to go to backwater Wisconsin? I mean the last time they won a title was 1940 so it’s not exactly a launching pad for NBA careers. It wasn’t the Red Sox’ weekend where stats are concerned. Baseball’s leading hitter is Mr. April, Adrian Gonzalez, who’s hitting .469 with 5 homers and 14 RBI, while Jose Iglesias was the AL hitting leader at .436 until Adam Jones passed him after destroying the Sox on Sunday. The Iggy part is the worst news for me, as my annoying Red Sox-loving friend Gary Parsons lives outside of Detroit and is going to mention it all summer if it keeps up because he’s still ticked they traded him for Jake Peavy. What’s the big deal about Darrelle Revis going to the White House for the congratulatory visit with the president? He earned it, didn’t he? Doesn’t that beat what Manny Ramirez and Tim Thomas did? Though on reflection about the Glenn Beck-loving Thomas electing (no pun intended) not to go to see the liberal Barack Obama when the Bruins were invited, I guess people who live in glass houses should be careful what they say, as I would have had to swallow hard to go a White House function with VP Dick Cheney on hand. I’d have done it, been polite and respectful, but I admit I wouldn’t have liked doing it. What do you think the over-under in Vegas is on moves made up and down the board by Coach B during the upcoming NFL draft?
With no one really seeming to be sold on guaranteed greatness, or even franchise QB status, of Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota, if I needed a QB and was picking near the top I would be reeeeeaaally careful about overreaching to get one. While it’s true a few great ones — Dan Marino, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson and of course Tom Brady dropping all the way to 199 — have slid, there have been as many failures as direct hits when picking in the Top 10. Since Peyton Manning went first overall in 1998 there have been nine good to great QBs picked in the Top 10, 10 bad to total bust QBs taken and four with the jury still out but pointing down, for injury issues — Sam Bradford or too soon to tell RG III. Total busts taken first overall include Tim Couch by Cleveland, David Carr by Houston and bust of all busts Jamarcus Russell by Oakland. Not to mention Joey Harrington at third and Akili Smith at 2. It’s put up or shut up time for Rajon Rondo. How he does in the playoffs will have a huge impact on his options in free agency. Hope he plays well and then defects to the Lakers, because without him the Mavs could slide toward the middle of the pack next year and one of the Celtics’ four firstround picks then comes from Dallas. What would one of these columns be without a comment on the Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy? He said last week Peter Chiarelli should be fired, in part, because in giving large, restrictive contracts his lack of fiscal discipline led them to run out of money. This came after basically saying all winter, no matter what, the Red Sox should have given Jon Lester anything he wanted to stay in town. Speaking of Lester, I don’t think throwing your glove to first base after a bunt, as he did Sunday, will solve those throwing problems to first base.

SELLING YOUR BUSINESS IS OUR
Springing back to action The Big Story: The spring high school sports season is upon us, though the outdoor sports, especially softball and baseball, are hampered by the effects of the brutal winter of 2015. Sports 101: In the famous “Havlicek Stole the Ball” moment in Celtics history, which turned 50 last week, why did the 76ers get to inbound the ball under their basket in the final seconds of Game 7 in the 1965 Eastern Conference Finals? The Numbers: The Bedford lacrosse team started up right where it left off for the last 61 games during the last four seasons by extending its winning streak to 62 games with a season-opening 18-4 win over Londonderry at the start of the week. The team was led by seniors Tyler Sullivan and Sam Stanton with four goals apiece, while (north) Dakota Clark chipped in with three more. They went to 63 with a 17-4 win over Nashua North later in the week behind six goals from Clark. Stat Sheet: Threes were wild for the Memorial baseball team when Ryan Heyman had three hits and three RBI and
2 – homers hit by Jessica Toriello in a SNHU doubleheader sweep of Franklin Pierce where the second one came in the top of the eighth inning to give the Penwomen a 3-2 win in extra innings. 5 – runs batted in for slugging Brody Dupuis on a 3-4 day in leading the Lancers to a 17-4 pasting of Winnacunnet when Cam Fennell chipped in with three hits as well.
Garrett Olivar threw 3⅓ innings of nohit ball in relief to lead the Crusaders to a 9-7 eight-inning win over Nashua North on Tuesday. Crosstown Rivals Game of the Week: It wasn’t much of a game in the end between now 21-7 SNHU and 10-17 Saint Anselm on North River Road last week. The Penmen out-slugged and out-pitched the Hawks in a 14-3 win on Thursday when Tyler Fortanascio and Mike Montville each homered and Cole Warren held them hitless over the first five innings of the game. Sports 101 Answer: While trying to inbound the ball, player-coach Bill Russell hit a guide wire holding up the basket on the critical play, giving the Sixers the ball, leading to the immortal play by Havlicek. On This Date – April 23: 1939 – Ted Williams hits his first of 521 homers. 1969 – The human logo Lakers guard Jerry West scores 53 points vs. the Celtics in NBA Finals matchup. 1995 – Revolutionary and ever obnoxious sportscaster Howard Cosell dies at 77.
8 – combined goals scored by Madi Kochanek (5) and Polly Carter (3) as Derryfield School took its lacrosse opener with a 16-0 win over Bow. 17 – strikeouts by Londonderry hurler Melissa Sprague as she shut out Pinkerton 2-0 on just one hit and a pair of walks in the Lancers’ season opener. 24 – margin of victory when Bishop Guertin smothered Central 24-0 behind four goals and two
assists by Bedford’s Alex Astirita in their lacrosse openers. 42 – saves by Patrik Bartosak in leading the Monarchs to a 3-2 win over Portland before 5,086 on hand at the V. 116 – school record number of goals scored by Trinity laxster Will (down) Towner, which came when he scored seven times in the Pioneers’ 23-8 win over West.
Dick Cheney: Most sinister U.S. political figure since Richard Nixon. Vindictive — ask Valerie Plame. Delusional — even if you think Barack Obama is doing a terrible job, it takes a certain kind of hubris to be so critical of ANYONE’s administration after his drove the strongest economy on earth off the cliff, failed to bring Osama Bin Laden to justice after his killing 3,000 innocent Americans on U.S. soil, started a 10-year war in Iraq on bad intelligence (oops, my bad) that led to what might be as many as 1,000,000 deaths overall and eventually gave rise to the ISIS threat. And, oh yeah, George Bush was barely speaking to him when their term ended. Valerie Plame: The “I had nothing to do with any of it” CIA lifer outed as a covert operative to columnist Robert Novak by people linked to Cheney because her husband ran afoul of him for telling the truth. Mike Gorman: Arguably the best of all local broadcasters as the Celtics’ longtime TV play-by play guy, who predicted the Cs would knock off the Cavs in six. Tim Tebow: Much maligned QB getting a chance in Philly after his Denver backstabbing after leading them to a series of miracle comebacks and the playoffs the only time he got a real chance to play in the NFL. Note to John Elway: While it ain’t as pretty for sure, Tebow’s playoff record was 1-1, while Peyton is 2-3, with two one-anddones since he left.

Why you should try cycling, skateboarding, inline skating or drag racing Sure, if you want to get somewhere, you could just walk. But if you want to get somewhere a little bit (or a lot) faster, it’s all about the wheels. Whether you want to cycle at a leisurely pace or race your own car as fast as you can, there’s all kinds of fun to be had on two or four wheels. You can skateboard around your neighborhood, or at a local skate park. You can even roll back to the ’90s and pick up a pair of inline skates. So go ahead, discover a new way to get moving.
Explore local roads on two wheels By Allie Ginwala
When you think of cycling, maybe you see yourself cruising down the road amidst a group of riders out together on a warm spring afternoon. Or maybe you fancy yourself as a solo rider racing toward the finish line for a stage win in the Tour de France. Whichever style of road biking you prefer, make sure you’re prepared with these gear, safety and nutrition tips from local bike shops.
The first thing you need to go out road biking is, of course, a bicycle. If you don’t own a bike, try renting one from a local shop before making the big purchase. Many shops offer rentals by the day so you can give it a spin before buying or just rent from time to time to keep the hobby alive. Whether you’re going out with your own bike or a rental, make sure you have a flat tire repair kit. “Flat tires are common because it’s rubber tire on asphalt,” Jason Marshall, store HIPPO | APRIL 23 - 29, 2015 | PAGE 14
manager of Goodale’s Bike Shop in Hooksett, said in a phone interview. With debris on the road like broken glass or metal, you never know what you might hit. Never changed a flat bicycle tire before? You’re not alone. “I do notice a lot of people have never changed a flat,” Charlie Goodspeed, owner of DG Cycle Sports, said in a phone interview. DG Cycles, with locations in Nashua, Londonderry and Epping, offers free training for those who want to come in and walk through the process of fixing the flat and identifying what caused the issue. “Make sure you know why you got the flat and fix the problem before you replace the tube,” he said. When determining other essentials to have while road biking, think of the body’s contact points with the bike: seat, pedals and handles. “I would say cycling shorts are one of your most important pieces of not just apparel but equipment,” Marshall said. Even for beginning cyclists, he said, a person can easily do 15 to 25 miles per ride
so it’s important to make sure you’re comfortable. Find traditional spandex shorts or baggy shorts with pads. “It gives you a little bit of cushion and abrasion resistance so you don't get sore while riding,” Goodspeed said. He also suggests wearing polypro or non-cotton clothes to wick moisture from the skin. Shoe options for riding are either a bicycling-specific shoe that clips into the pedal or a stiff shoe that slips into straps around the pedal. Both options have benefits for increasing efficiency and speed and are based mostly on personal preference. If you do decide to go with a shoe that slips into pedal straps, make sure it’s not a running shoe, Goodspeed said, as those tend to be too malleable. Other gear to have when heading out for a ride is eye protection, gloves and a helmet. Both Marshall and Goodspeed said that the most important thing to remember when selecting a helmet is to get one that fits properly and is comfortable. “Doesn’t matter if you spend $40 or $500; if it doesn't fit it’s not going to do its
job, regardless,” Marshall said.
Hit the open road
Once you’re geared up and checked to make sure the tires and brakes are in working order, it’s time to hit the pavement. “What’s nice about [road biking] is you can leave from your house,” Marshall said. When a sunny day comes, take off from your garage and ride through neighboring towns. “That’s the beauty of it. … You can get to 25 or 30 miles and not realize it.” When it comes to picking a route, base it on your comfort level. While seasoned cyclists may have no qualms riding alongside cars on a busy road, beginners may opt for roads less traveled. “That’s usually where riding through small towns [is] definitely the best,” Marshall said. He lives in Milford and likes the roads west toward Keene and Peterborough that are quieter and wider. If you live in southern Manchester, head toward Litchfield, or for Concord residents, try the roads in Bow or Loudon.
Even though cars are supposed to give bicycles three feet of space, it’s essential to stay aware of traffic while riding. “Always ride with traffic,” Marshall said. “As a cyclist you are supposed to be a vehicle, so follow all the rules, stopping at lights and stop signs. Generally you want to try to stay close to the edge of the road, but within reason.” “Stay as far as you can to the right, but you do have the right to avoid potholes,” Goodspeed said. Another good idea is to always assume cars don’t see you and to ride defensively.
“Don't think you’re going to outforce a truck [because] you’re going to lose every time.”
Eat, drink and be nourished
The best way to make sure your body is ready to ride is by drinking plenty of water. “People generally tend not to drink enough,” Goodspeed said. “If they’re feeling thirsty they’re already behind.” To ensure you’re getting enough water, aim for drinking a bottle of water per hour when you’re out sweating. If you want the benefits of electrolytes without all of the sugar, dilute Gatorade with water or put electrolyte powder directly into a water bottle. “Every half hour or so have a snack, a goo gel or a granola bar or something just to keep energy going in,” Goodspeed said. Bananas are a popular choice for a good source of potassium in a natural package, Marshall said. “Generally for nutrition-wise a lot of shops have energy gels of some sort,” Marshall said. “They suggest taking it 15 minutes before you go and every 45 minutes after that.” The great thing about gels is they’re in small packages, which makes it easy to take a couple along each time you ride. Once you’ve finished, clean off your bike, take a breather and enjoy a cup of chocolate milk, a great recovery drink post-ride. Gadgets and gear A few extras to bring along on your ride Mirrors: Attach one to your helmet or glasses so you can check what’s coming up behind you. Flashing tail lights: Get LED lights, also visible in the daytime for added safety. Speedometer: Track your speed and distance to set goals for the next ride. GPS: Either a dedicated device or smartphone app. Good for new routes and a guarantee to find the way home.
“One thing people tend to do that is a mistake is they ride the roads they drive,” Goodspeed said. “Those are generally the more overused roads and more crowded with cars so try to stay off the common routes and go the back routes.” If you’re still unsure of where to ride or nervous about planning a route on your own, check out a local bike shop for group rides. Both DG Cycles and Goodale’s Bike Shop have regular group rides through area back roads and rail trails that provide encouragement and a learning opportunity for new riders. “Riding in a group tends to push you a little bit more [and] it’s a lot more enjoyable with the social aspect,” Goodspeed said. “You learn how to ride better and more efficiently, techniques to climbing and spinning and general riding that you might not pick up if riding by yourself.” Marshall said riding in a group is also helpful for when things go wrong, since most likely at least one person knows how to fix a flat tire or a broken chain. “We go out and do a ride and show people where to go and teach how to ride in a group,” Goodspeed said. “We stay off the busy state routes … [there are] a ton of backroads with very few cars and you get to ride several bikes abreast and no one gets mad.”

Joe Lombardo, the dragway's general manager, said every Wednesday and Friday night the quarter-mile racing strip is host to amateur street racing. “We're a facility where you can come in right off the street, purchase a ticket, have your car go through a quick safety inspection, and then make as many runs as you want down the track just to see what it will do,” said Lombardo. Lombardo said you don't have to be a “motorhead” or a “ricer,” as some car-racing enthusiasts are often called, to show up at the dragway looking to burn some rubber. “If you took a look at our demographics, it's pretty wide-ranging, both in terms of age and [gender]. ... We have a lot of women that race,” Lombardo said. Lombardo said drag racing isn’t the kind of racing you’ll find on TV. “[It's a] totally different form of racing than what you would see with NASCAR,” Lombardo said. “Two cars pull up to the starting line, and I have a person out there who activates what we call a ‘Christmas tree,’ which is a starting-line mechanism. And as soon as those cars leave and break those infrared beams, it starts a timer that we maintain up in the tower.”

many things have changed since he started. “It used to be, in the old days — the old days being 25, 30 years ago — that you'd see a lot of muscle cars like Camaros, Chevelles, GTOs. That type of thing. Now, we're seeing an awful lot of the imports, which are just as fast and just as quick as some of those cars that were purposely built for the racetrack many years ago,” Lombardo said. “A lot of Hondas, a lot of Nissans. The Hondas are pretty popular because they can take a Honda Civic and they can put an Acura engine in it. That seems to be a pretty popular changeover nowadays.” Lombardo says he also sees Toyota Supras, BMWs and a few Mercedes. He sees people coming to experiment with modifications, like one man who brought his wife's BMW to the dragway, raced it a few times unaltered, then tweaked the boost level on the car's turbocharger and raced it again.
But if racing your own car isn't your thing, you can also come to watch others race. Every weekend, purpose-built race cars can be seen competing on the track, but there’s one weekend event that stands out. In 2013, the New England Dragway became a part of the National Hot Rod Association's championship circuit. So, for one weekend every June, about 60,000 spectators descend upon the dragway, which underwent some upgrades to be able to host the national event. It’s proven so popular that the dragway is now trying to expand parking capacity. During the event, professional drivers in souped up race cars blast their way down the the strip at 300 miles per hour and deploy a parachute to bring the vehicle to a stop. Lombardo said the national event brings big names in the sport like John Force and Erica Enders. Spectators can interact with the drivers in the pit area between “passes.” “It's pretty unique in the world of motorsports in that you get right up close and personal with your favorite driver,” Lombardo said. This year, the flagship NHRA event is scheduled for June 12 through June 14.
Try your hand (or feet) at skateboarding
It’s finally time to trade in the skis and snowboards for some wheels. Whether you take to the skateparks or cruise around on your driveway, skateboarding can be fun for all ages and abilities.
tomize your board by choosing your own parts. The size and hardness of the wheels paired with the size and tightness of the trucks can make a significant difference in the type of board you’re trying to create. According to Whatmough, a completed longboard can cost between $129 and $359, while a completed traditional board can cost between $99 and $179.
What you’ll need
By Angie Sykeny
To start, you’ll need a good pair of skate shoes, a board and safety gear. You can find these online or at a local skate shop. You can buy shoes that are made specifically for skateboarding, or, if you don’t want to invest in a new pair, the most important thing is that the shoes you’re wearing have a large, flat sole with little to no tread. Flat soles grip the board better than textured running shoes do. Next, decide on the type of board you want. There are a variety of kinds, so you’ll need to consider your skill level and what you’ll be using the board for — cruising, tricks or a combination. “There’s traditional skateboards, longboards and cruiser boards,” said Ryan Whatmough, assistant manager at Snowboard Jones, a snowboard and skateboard
shop in Manchester. “There are differences with each.” In general, traditional skateboards have a short deck and are ideal for doing tricks and riding ramps. Longboards are made for cruising long distances or downhill. Cruiser boards are somewhere in between; they are more maneuverable than a longboard but typically used for cruising rather than tricks. “With longboarding, the longer the board
is, the more stable it is,” Whatmough said. “With traditional skateboarding, a beginner will want a narrow board while an advanced will want a wider board. It’s easier to maneuver a small deck than a big one.” You will also need to think about what kinds of trucks and wheels you want. (Trucks are the pieces that attach the wheels to the board.) You can buy a board premade with all the parts, or you can cus-
Finally, you’ll need to acquire some safety equipment. As a beginner, you should have a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads. Even as an experienced skater, it’s a good idea to wear a helmet at the very least. Don’t buy a board that is more advanced than your skill level, and be sure to skate somewhere you can feel comfortable. “The best way to be safe is to go to a skatepark,” Whatmough said. “Skate within your limit and don’t try to progress too fast.”
If you’re just learning, Whatmough said, you can either go to a skatecamp, watch tutorials online, experiment on your own or go to a skatepark. “A lot of people just learn at a 18

OK, so inline skating isn’t quite as popular as it was in the ’90s — it peaked probably sometime during the making of 1998 Disney Channel Original Movie Brink! — but it’s sort of coming back, says Tom Hyser, marketing manager at the national company Rollerblade, whose home office is in West Lebanon. Signs, he says, are in Rollerblade sales numbers, which have increased all around the U.S. in the past two years, and also in the fact that some local retailers are beginning to sell them again. “The mid-’90s in general was our biggest time of participation. … Like with many mini action sports, the trends kind of follow a 10-year cycle,” said Hyser, who used to be a professional skater. “Right now we’re on an upswing. We’re seeing a lot of college-age kids [inline skating], and also parents who grew up in the ’90s who are introducing their kids to the sport.” For those who want to partake in this 17 skatepark,” he said. “You can see how others skate, and most skatepark people are open and encouraging and will help you and teach you how to do it.” Once you get the basics down, you can start trying some tricks. The easiest trick and the foundation for most other tricks is the “ollie” — simply making the board leave the ground. A “pop shove-it” is an ollie while spinning the board 180 degrees around. A kick flip is an ollie while flipping the board 360 degrees around. You can also skate in a bowl and do “lip tricks,” which are tricks done around the edge of the bowl, or you can do tricks off a ramp. “There’s a lot of trial and error,” Whatmough said. “A lot of skaters do [tricks] to progress themselves and see how far they can go. I guess it’s a way to express
upswing, we’ve scoured the state for tips on picking out your recreational (or super advanced) inline skates and places to put them to good use.
Choose your skates
You can get inline skates at most large sports chain stores — Dick’s Sporting Goods and Sports Authority both carry them — but you can also find them at smaller specialty stores, like Pure Hockey (which has locations in Hooksett, Dover, Nashua and Exeter) and Spank Alley Skate & Board Shop in Concord. Hyser says inline skates come in two styles. A molded style is built more like a ski boot. It’s for someone who wants more durability — maybe for street hockey, tricks or cross-training — while the soft style is generally more lightweight and comfortable. After that, look at size and durability. Fit should be snug but not too tight, not too loose. To judge on support, squeeze the cuff area; a cheap skate, Hyser says, will be flimsy and flexible. “You want something that has good sup-
themselves.” You can also look into skateboarding events, contests and groups to get involved with. Snowboard Jones holds an annual skate jam every year where they set up rails and ramps in the parking lot and have justfor-fun contests. Other skate shops hold similar events.
Most importantly, remember to have fun and skate at your own pace. “I just enjoy getting outside and hanging with friends,” Whatmough said. “It’s a healthy, affordable alternative to sitting inside doing nothing. You can teach yourself something new, and there’s always room for improvement and always something you can learn. It’s endless opportunity.”

port for your ankles and good wheels and bearings,” Hyser said. A good wheel size for beginners is around 80 mm, around 100 to 110 for high-end, advanced skaters. (The larger the wheel, the faster you’ll go — but it also takes more energy and core balance to skate on them.) If you plan to skate primarily outdoors, you also need to look at the type of wheels, says Pat Moore, manager of Pure Hockey in Dover. Each skate wheel has a different durometer, which measures its hardness. “You want a harder wheel if you’re going to be outside on asphalt. They make softer ones for indoors,” Moore said. “When you’re indoors, the floor is very slick, so you need a softer wheel for better grip.”
it as cross training for endurance sports, hockey, even CrossFit, because it helps build endurance and leg and core muscles.
Today, rinks for inline skaters are few and far between. They had existed in Newington, Merrimack and Laconia but are now closed; the closest full-time rink is the Great View Roller Skating Rink in Enfield, and the closest part-time one is Rochester Arena, which transforms from an ice rink to a roller rink April through August. The state’s more advanced skaters can be seen at Rye Airfield, which is one of the biggest skate parks in the country. Though general manager Beau Lambert says he used to see a lot more inline when the park opened 13 years ago — any giv-
en day, about 25 percent were skaters — he still sees a small, tight crowd of aggressive inline. He suspects the decline in popularity had to do with the X-games no longer holding inline skating events. “A good number of kids who inline skate also ski. They’re the park type skiers; they hit all the rails and jumps,” Lambert said. “It’s a natural extension of what they’re doing.” Hyser agrees; he says people also use
Luckily, outdoor options are expanding. Hyser says he thinks most Rollerblade customers are recreational athletes skating around neighborhoods and quiet streets, but for those who don’t live in inline skating-friendly neighborhoods, there are numerous paved rail trails and lots of plans to expand those trails. The biggest plan is the Granite State Rail Trail, which, when complete, will comprise a paved path from Salem to Concord following mostly abandoned rail corridors (visit nhrailtrails.org for details). Right now, the longest paved GSRT segment is from Windham to Derry at eight miles (park at Hood Park in Derry or at the Windham Depot in Windham). Other paved GSRT segments include the South Manchester Trail (.9 miles paved; starts at Perimeter Road, ends at Granite Street) and the Londonderry Trail (about one mile paved, parking available at the Exit 5 Park and Ride and also at the North Elementary School). Other currently paved trails include the Piscataquog Trail in Manchester (about 2 miles paved; starts around the east bank of the Merrimack River, ends near Electric Ave., with parking available at West

ARTS Symphony NH in ‘Top Form’
Season finale with music by Brahms, Bach and Tchaikovsky By Kelly Sennott
Symphony NH music director/principal conductor Jonathan McPhee knew he’d had a busy few months, but it was put into perspective when bachtrack.com — an online classical music event finder database — compiled stats from 2014 and named him the busiest conductor in the world last year. McPhee is also music director for the Lexington Symphony and the Boston Ballet, the second-largest musical organization in Boston. Yet he’s unwilling to give up his large workload; there’s still much to be done. “New Hampshire [has] this national image of being one of the best places in America to live, but the one thing it gets hammered for is a lack of cultural activities,” McPhee said via phone last week. “And one of the most important things to have in a cultural arts scene is an orchestra. [The state] has seen group after group close here. … So when I was hired here, the board asked me, ‘Can you take the Nashua Symphony and make it the centerpiece for what’s happening in the cultural scene in New Hampshire?’” The symphony has been through a great See “Top Form” Where: Keefe Center for the Arts, 117 Elm St., Nashua When: Saturday, April 25, at 8 p.m. Admission: $12-$48; free youth tickets for ages 5 to 15, though only by reservation; call 595-9156, visit symphonynh.org

deal of growth since its rebranding in 2012. Today, it produces far more events — concerts, educational opportunities, fundraisers — than it used to, and in more cities. McPhee credits executive director Eric Valliere, the board and the musicians who’ve come along for the ride, but there’s still a ways to go. “I still have people who come up to me and say, ‘I had no idea we had an orchestra in New Hampshire!’ The more people who find out about us, the bigger the audiences will be,” McPhee said. At the time of his interview, he was prepping for the last Symphony NH concert of the season: “Top Form,” the highlight of which will be Brahms’ Symphony No. 4.

This piece, said McPhee, is to Brahms what No. 9 is to Beethoven. It had been a while since the orchestra performed it — Valliere said he couldn’t find a record of the last time it was performed in Nashua — so the pair felt it was time. “You want to end the season with a bang, and I always try to have something that’s monumental, a masterpiece, and that’s Brahms’ fourth symphony. It was the last big orchestral work he did, and it was probably his crowning achievement. It has great intensity, wonderful power,” McPhee said. “It was the only symphony he wrote which was an instant hit.” Paired with this is Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet fantasy overture. (Think two lov-
ers running at one another for an embrace — it happens in Clueless, Wayne’s World, Spongebob Squarepants, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and South Park; it’s also the music that plays on the computer game The Sims when two people fall in love.) The music, McPhee said, is powerfully visual, with traces of love, excitement, anger and tragedy woven in, essentially telling Shakespeare’s story in just 20 minutes. The piece people aren’t going to know is Bach’s Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor. The piece, McPhee said, was originally written for the organ but it has a contemporary feel. It’s what he calls the “surprise piece,” an integral program element that will enable the symphony’s growth. Within every concert, he and Valliere like to insert a mix of recognizable and lesser-known tunes. “That’s part of the growing factor,” McPhee said. “In our last concert, we commissioned a piece by Drew Hemenger. … When we finished Drew’s piece, the entire audience leapt to its feet. It’s such a colorful piece, and that was really gratifying. … If you walk out of the hall excitedly talking about a piece you didn’t know, then I think we’ve done a great job.” Looking into next year, Valliere and McPhee hope to continue to surprise and challenge the symphony and its audience. On the menu is another collaboration with the Lexington Symphony, which will perform a portion of Wagner’s Ring Cycle with Symphony NH. The Keefe stage will need to expand, and so will the concert (into two nights).

If you take away anything bad about public school art class — grades, short duration, shoddy materials — and add in some young, hip teachers, you’ve got the gist of the New Hampshire Institute of Art’s SEPIA (Student Enrichment Program in the Arts) program. For the past two months, NHIA has been luring Manchester youth to the Lowell Street Building basement studio for once-a-week, two-hour after-school art classes taught by art education degree candidates. All the kids’ work — photography, papier mache, wire and clay sculpture, collage, canvas paintings — have themes of identity and will be on view at the Millyard Museum starting this Thursday, with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. that day. It comprises more than 150 art pieces. The youth are from Manchester middle and high schools and many are members of refugee, immigrant or lower-income families, or from BRINGIT! (Bringing Refugees, Immigrants and Neighbors Gently Into Tomorrow). NHIA faculty member Betty Roy, who oversees SEPIA lessons, thinks it’s a win for both the public school and NHIA students. “[The NHIA students] get to work with a population that is, for the most part, not speaking English as their first language,” Roy said. “They get exposure to a number of cultures, languages, and they have to find ways to get their point across by somehow teaching more visually than auditorily.” The art students designed the lesson plans and mentored the kids in small groups and, as a result, got to know them very well. They learned their kids’ learning styles, strengths and struggles and were able to create quite personal lessons. For the kids, it’s also just more fun than art class at school. “There’s no expectation. They’re not graded on this. … And we let them think out of the box sometimes,” Roy said. “One of the pieces that really amazes me is that students who wouldn’t be caught dead talking in school are working on collaborative pieces together.” During a recent trip to the classroom one Thursday afternoon, there was a relaxed yet focused air. In one corner, the kids were making clay tiles about things they love — writing, music, family — and in another, they illustrated their idea of paradise with pastel paint. “A lot of my art focuses on landscape. I

wanted to think of something more individual to the student,” said Thomas Dacey, a fine arts major who was facilitating this project. By the door, they built papier mache bowls and vases plastered with their hopes and dreams in words. This was the messiest corner; the papier mache went on blown-up balloons that would be popped when dry. One girl’s sculpture was in the shape of a yellow star bowl with the word “Happiness” strewn across. “We’ve been doing a lot of 2D self-portraiture projects based on life in the present time. I thought we’d freshen it up by doing something based on the future,” Brittany Torres, a senior fine arts major leading the papier mache group, said as she slapped another strip of gooey newspaper atop her balloon. Dhahiro Osman said she returned for a second year of art because she likes the materials and the amount of time they have to create. “I like the teachers, and I think it’s fun,” she said. “You also get more time to do it.” At the center of the room, kids were snipping and folding wires to create animals. Alyssa Boutin, a senior and fine arts major, led this group. The kids finished a bit earlier than the rest — wire sculptures aren’t quite as messy as papier mache ones — but they continued to create from the materials at hand. “I think they’re more willing to experiment with things because it’s not a school lesson,” Boutin said. “I love the group atmosphere, too. … At the beginning, we asked them what they wanted us to integrate in. They said sculpture and photography. They don’t usually do big 3D stuff in school.” Other projects have included bookmaking, watercolor, cardboard sculpture and Jackson Pollock drip-style projects. All will be on view at the Millyard Museum exhibition through May 16.

• Season finale: The last show of the season at the Merrimack Repertory Theatre (50 E. Merrimack St., Lowell) is The Outgoing Tide by Bruce Graham, directed by Charles Towers. The play is a touching family drama, “sprinkled with surprising humor that asks what it means to truly love someone,” as described on the MRT website.

Spring has been slow in showing its colors. Snowdrops, usually up in early March at my house, were a month late. Crocus, the early ones, and winter aconite (a school-bus yellow flower) are finally blooming. But everything is slow, and the ground is still frozen a few inches down. I won’t be planting anything outside for weeks. So what can we do on a warm, sunny day? Maybe we’d better start by thinking about what NOT to do. Don’t rake the lawn while the soil is still soggy. I recently saw a fellow raking his lawn, even though there was still snow on it in places. Soil structure can be damaged if you compress it and squeeze out all the air spaces in it. This is easily done by walking on it when the soil is still frozen and wet and very fragile. And it’s easy to rip out your grass with a rake if it hasn’t woken up and turned green. Don’t rototill your vegetable garden early, either. If you are going to rototill, wait until the soil is good and dry. Take a handful of soil and squeeze it into a ball or cylinder. Then, with your other hand, tap it with a finger. It should fall apart. You want the soil crumbly before rototilling, though some clay soils never get to that point. Rototilling sticky wet soil can create heavy clods that roots will not easily penetrate. So what can you do now? As soon as the snow disappears you can collect a soil sample and send it off to the University of New Hampshire extension service. (Google “soil test” and NH, and you will find where to send a sample and how to collect it.) I usually sun dry a sample on a cookie sheet, and remove any bits of grass, roots and rocks. As a rule of thumb, it is good to collect your sample from the depth where roots will be. For most things, that is 4 to 6 inches deep. If you live in a house that was built before 1978, its exterior paint probably has some lead in it. Lead paint has been shown to contaminate soil and to be picked up by plants; this is most severe within 20 feet of the house, or even further if you are on a hill. Testing for heavy metals can be expensive: in New Hampshire the test is $65. But if you have small children and will be gardening near the house, it is a worthwhile one-time investment. Root crops are the worst offenders when it comes to picking up lead and arsenic, another heavy metal. Lead was an additive to gasoline up until 1996 in most states, and lead from exhaust can still be a problem within 100 feet of a major highway. Arsenic was used as an insecticide, particularly in apple orchards up until the 1980s, either as lead arsenate or cal-

cium arsenate. Heavy metal compounds like that do not dissipate or disappear easily or quickly. So how can you improve your soil? In a word, compost. Good compost is biologically active, meaning that it is full of beneficial microorganisms — bacteria and fungi. Later, when my lawn has turned green, I may spread some compost on it to improve the soil. All I do is fling compost over the lawn with a shovel and then use a lawn rake to even it out. Half an inch of compost spread out over the lawn will help a lot, particularly if you have used chemicals on the lawn. Fertilizers and particularly “Weed-n-Feed” products inhibit the growth and survival of microbes that will give your lawn that springy feel when you walk on it barefoot this summer. Compost adds organic matter and carbon to feed microbes that can’t use photosynthesis to get their own food. Earthworms love compost, too. Add compost, and they will come and help to get it down into the soil. I have, carefully, raked leaves off one of my bulb beds. I was delighted to see, beneath a layer of leaves, the tips of daffodils and other bulbs were showing. I didn’t walk into the bed, as that would compact the soil, so I just reached what I could from the edge. I have been known to lay down boards to walk on to avoid soil compaction at this time of year. Six-inch-wide boards cut in 5-foot lengths are good; they are light enough to move around, but do a good job of distributing my weight. Two or three is all you need. This is a good time of year to do a little tool maintenance. Take a big, rough file and sharpen the edges of your shovels and hoes. A sharp tool works much better than a dull one. I also apply boiled linseed oil once a year to keep wooden handles from drying out. I paint it on, let it soak in, then rub the handles with a rag to polish them up.

Gerri Dear Gerri, Antique gingerbread clocks were made right here in the U.S.A. They were made from the late 1800s to the 1900s, and they all are identified by the pressed/etched wooden design around the tops and bottoms of the clock casing. They were very popular during the Victorian era. Some people say they look like gingerbread houses. The clocks were made by several different companies, and some were mass made. The cases are always wooden, with either a basic design or a more elaborate one. Some are hand-etched and some are pressed in the wooden design. The glass on the doors was usually reversepainted designs (painted on the inside to reflect outside). Some have alarms or thermometers. The problem in today’s market is that there were so many made and so many around even today that it has shot the values down. Simple ones bring less than the more detailed. But the fact is, they are still not as heavily sought after as other antique clocks. You can find them in the range of $100 to $250. If you’re looking to have yours fixed, make sure you talk to the clock repair person. Ask him or her if the fixing will exceed the value. Now, if it’s a fami-

IN/OUT CAR TALK
Vent windows have gone the way of the dinosaur Dear Car Talk: I had a ‘73 MGB, and it had vent windows. I now have a 2007 VW Eos, and like all new autos, it does NOT have vent windows. I miss vent windows. Why were By Ray Magliozzi they designed out of newer vehicles? — John For two reasons, John. One is that they’re no longer really necessary. For those too young to remember vent windows, vinyl seats that left branding marks on your thighs and car interiors that felt like ovens, cars used to have small, triangular windows in front of the driver and passenger windows. Those vent windows could be unlocked and then angled outward, so they would catch the wind and blow it directly onto your face ... or other important areas of the body that require cooling. And back before air conditioning, those vent windows could mean the difference between showing up at work ready to suck up to the boss, and showing up for work looking like you’d just played two hours of one-on-one with LeBron James. But almost every car now comes with air conditioning. So if it’s so hot that simply
lowering a window won’t cut it, you always have the option of rolling up the windows and turning the temperature down. And that leads to the second reason why you don’t see vent windows anymore: Cars are actually more fuel-efficient with all of their windows closed and the air conditioner on — even when you factor in the energy used to power the air conditioner. A lot of work and science go into making cars aerodynamic these days so as to maximize mileage. And in order to make the wind flow around the car, the windows have to be closed to create a smooth exterior surface. If you open the windows, you increase the car’s wind resistance and reduce its fuel mileage, especially at higher speeds. And that’s just with the regular windows open. If you were to push out one of the windows, so it was perpendicular to the car — as vent windows were — it’d be like mounting a pizza box on your door. It would kill the aerodynamic profile of the vehicle. Dear Car Talk: I drive a 2001 GMC Jimmy with about 230,000 miles on it. Recently, I drove it cross-country from New Orleans to Portland, Oregon, with a U-Haul trailer in tow. We had a few problems, but we completed
the journey. Before we left, I had the mechanic in New Orleans give it a good lookover, which turned into replacing brake lines and installing a new emergency brake. However, we’ve recently noticed that there is a clicking noise coming from the passenger side of the car when we brake, though it seems to happen only when the following conditions all are in play: Going downhill + pressing the brakes + turning right. Any thoughts on what it might be? — Becki Well, I can’t rule out the cliff scenario, Becki. Start by checking all of your wheel nuts. Since you had brake work done, you may be thinking “brakes” first, but maybe the guy didn’t tighten your wheel nuts and you have a wheel that’s getting ready to fall off. Hey, it happens. Assuming it’s not that, then if you’re lucky it’s something simple, like a loose brake pad. If it tends to happen when you’re stepping on the brakes lightly, then it could be just a loose pad. When you step hard on the brakes, there’s really no room for pads to rattle because they’re pushed up hard against the rotor. So if it’s just during light or moderate braking, your mechanic can try installing a hardware kit that’s designed for rattling brakes. It’s called — get this — an anti-rattle kit.
If it’s not a loose pad, then it could be something more dangerous. I would assume that when your mechanic did all that brake work in New Orleans, he would have noticed if an entire caliper were loose. But maybe he was suffering from a crawfish hangover that day and missed it. So you definitely want to have another mechanic take a look. If it’s a loose caliper, or a caliper bracket that’s not attached properly to the steering knuckle, you’d be more likely to hear the rattling when you go over bumps, too. Because the caliper is a larger part and would be banging up against its bolts, it would sound more like a knocking, rather than a rattling. If your caliper were to fall off, you’d have trouble stopping the car and trouble controlling the car, because one wheel would be stopping while the other would not be. Then we’re back to that cliff scenario. So I’d advise you to check the wheel nuts, and then take it to a mechanic you trust right away, and just let him inspect the brakes. Hopefully, he’ll rule out anything drastic, and if it’s just benign pad rattle, (which I’m sure our pharmaceutical companies are working on a cure for right now: “Do you, or someone you love, have BPR?”), you can decide if you want to fix it or just live with it.

An evening of shopping, food, comedy and more is in store at Pics for Packs, a fundraiser put on by XO Photo to benefit Together We Rise happening Sunday, April 26, at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua. From 4 to 6 p.m. guests will gather in the ballroom for an expo-style setup of local vendors, music, food and drinks. Then, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., comedian hypnotist Bruce James will perform a show in the Balsam room. “We have all these connections we’ve gained being in the event industry,” said Rachael Morgan, owner of XO Photo, a Salem-based photo booth rental company. “We know DJs, we know venues, so myself and my team sat down together and said, why don’t we pull together our resources and do something really awesome to give back.” Together We Rise is a nonprofit that seeks to improve the lives of children in foster care. Around 20 local vendors will have tables set up to chat with guests, give out samples and sell their products, including Wicked Mojo IT of Derry, Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt of Nashua and Tilton, LB Fitness Personal Training of Nashua and Lady Di’s Sweet Treats of Salem. The first 100 attendees will receive “swag bags” filled with coupons and samples from the attending vendors and other local businesses. A DJ will provide the tunes, and a massage therapist will be there to give free chair massages. Capture the memories at an XO Photo photo booth, and snack on some finger food provided by the Radisson. A cash bar will be available as well. There will be numerous raffle prizes, including gift certificates from local businesses, Canobie Lake Park tickets,
an overnight stay and breakfast for two at the Radisson and a Boston Red Sox photo signed by player Rusney Castillo. For the second part of the evening, comedian hypnotist Bruce James will perform a Las Vegas-style show with his assistant and former Miss New England, Kelly Jean. “Bruce is amazing and really funny,” Morgan said. “Our attendees will be the people he’s hypnotising so you can just raise your hand if you want to participate. It’s a great chance to get involved, do something fun and try something new.” Proceeds from the event will provide “sweet cases” for local children in foster care, travel bags filled with a blanket, personal care items, a stuffed animal and a coloring book and crayons. Morgan said the goal is for the event to provide 100 sweet cases. “Most kids in foster care really only have a trash bag, the clothes on their back and maybe a few belongings,” Morgan said. After the event, Together We Rise will send Morgan and her team the cases, and they will assemble them and color designs on them with fabric markers to make them fun and personal. Then, they will pass the cases on to local agencies who will distribute them to the children. “[The event] is a way to count our blessings, give back and have fun at the same time,” Morgan said. “It’s a great show, great experience and at the end of the evening you’ve made someone else’s day. I don’t think you can beat that feeling.”

FOOD Bringing in Bayona
New cafe opens in the Manchester Millyard News from the local food scene
By Allie Ginwala
• Restaurant openings: At the end of March, Number 5 Tavern (157 Main St., Hopkinton, 746-1154) opened its doors in Hopkinton. As of April 19, the tavern is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., according to the tavern’s Facebook page. The menu features a selection of soups, salads and starters, burgers and sandwiches, and entrees like shellfish gumbo, vegetable lasagna and stuffed pork chop. New to Concord is Willows Plant-Based Eatery (55 S. Main St., Concord), a vegan cafe that opened in April in the location that once housed Spoon Revolution Vegan Bistro. Open daily for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Eatery sells sandwiches, hearty bowls and daily specials such as spring roll with mango. Colby Hill Inn (33 The Oaks, Henniker, 428-3281, colbyhillinn.com) is returning to its historic roots with this month’s opening of Bartlett’s Restaurant, named in honor of the original owner, Lieutenant Samuel Bartlett. “We wanted to take advantage of the historic nature of the property and change up the restaurant,” Colby Hill Inn owner Mason Cobb said in a press release. Samuel Bartlett opened Bartlett’s Tavern in 1820 with the goal of helping weary travelers by offering food, drink and lodging. New menus will feature traditional New England fare with a twist along with casual fare options. Also new on the menu is a signature cocktail called Bartlett’s Passion, a blend of pear vodka, pear juice and elderflower in a sugar-rimmed glass. • Back to the table: Bringing farmers, chefs and guests together to enjoy a farm-to-table meal in scenic settings, The Farmers Dinner is back for another season along with a couple of new additions. According to an email newsletter from founder Keith Sarasin, The Farmers Dinner opened an online store selling stickers and tote bags. A portion of the proceeds goes to support local agriculture. Also new this year are a handful of special events and partnerships with new farms, the details of which will be announced later. The first Farmers Dinner of the season is a fivecourse meal with chef Chris Noble of blu Aqua Restaurant & Bar (Salzburg Square, 292 Route 101, Amherst, 673-4321, bluaquanh.com).

For Keri Laman, when it came time to open her new cafe, it was all about the details, from menu design and kitchen arrangements to smoothie names and staff selection. Opened on March 25 in the Manchester Millyard in the lower level of the Jefferson building, Bayona Cafe brings a funky concept to an old building, straddling the line of preserving history and bringing new life to an unused space. “It’s all about it being part of who you are,” Laman said. President/owner of the Tidewater Catering family, which includes Waterworks Cafe and Riverside Room located in the Waumbec Building, Laman believes the only way to take on the project of opening an eatery is to dedicate yourself to it. “It’s a lifestyle choice and if I didn’t feel that I was meant to do this and that it didn’t tie into everything I am, I don’t think I could do it,” she said. Tidewater Catering, a full-service company, began in 2003 and grew in 2005 to include contract food service accounts for Manchester Community College, DEKA Research and others. Looking for a way to expand the opportunity to highlight their culinary abilities, Waterworks Cafe opened in the Manchester Millyard in 2013, followed shortly after by Riverside Room in the space just next door. A year later, Laman started the process of opening another cafe in the millyard, this time in the Jefferson building. Bayona Cafe is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday with the intent of serving a mix of business professionals, students and teachers a healthy, affordable and convenient breakfast, lunch or mid-afternoon snack. “I purposely situated both Waterworks and Bayona in a way hoping to grasp the most amount of people who don’t feel that they have to walk eight blocks to get something to eat, don’t feel that they have to bring in their food every day ... but can come down for a quick breakfast and go back to their desk or go back to their classroom and feel that they ate something healthy and didn’t have to live off vending Bayona Cafe Where: 670 N. Commercial St., Suite 2021, Manchester Call: 782-3450 Visit: bayonacafe.com

machines,” Laman said. The menu at Bayona is extensive and eclectic, chosen based on Laman’s vision and suggestions from culinary director Johnny Wallace and his team. The goal was to make the food “funky, bold and a little bit more in-your-face,” she said. The breakfast menu has omelets and egg scrambles, sandwiches and pancakes, and standouts like boozy peaches and cream crepes (bourbon marinated peaches and mascarpone whipped cream over pan griddle crepes topped with toasted pecans) and a falafel sandwich (fried eggs, falafel, tomato, avocado, sauteed spinach and tzatziki sauce on an English muffin). Lunch has a selection of salads and soups, sandwiches and burgers, flatbreads, Bayona specialties like beer-battered fish tacos and flat iron steak baguette, and pasta bowls such as duck confit and mushroom ravioli, seafood linguini and spicy Italian sausage. “Bayona is really a sister of Waterworks, although, as I laughingly say, not a twin,” Laman said. “We really wanted to do something here that was a little more unique, a little more special for the Jefferson Mill and the tenants here because they are different than the Waumbec.” With a second cafe located in the millyard, it’s clear that Laman has an affinity for the area. Growing up in New Jersey, she spent a lot of time visiting job sites with her father, who was a New York City iron worker. “He taught me a lot about being around places like this and looking at something that can look old and seeing the potential
in it,” she said. “I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for ... the sacrifices my parents made. My father in particular has made tremendous sacrifices.” Laman’s mother passed away when she was in high school and her younger siblings were 15 and 7. “And he made great sacrifices for me to have wings,” she said. “He put all three of us through college, being a union ironworker. [He’s] an amazing man.” When she moved to New Hampshire in 1997, the mill area was vacant, and she was inspired to help repurpose the space while also keeping its integrity. But turning the original space into Bayona Cafe wasn’t without its challenges. Running right through the middle of the windowless dining room and into the kitchen of Bayona are 4-foot by 4-foot granite and brick pillars that hold the building up. The trick Laman saw was not eliminating the pillars (which wasn’t an option anyway for the structure of the building), but keeping them true to the original building while also making the area beautiful. Laman and her team did that with lighting, colors and interior spacing, plus large windows facing the hallway and dark woods for the flooring. “I want people to feel it’s very open; it’s why I added the windows, it’s why the door’s open,” she said. As for the granite pillars, other than cleaning and varnishing them, they remain the same as when they were first constructed and are now the roots of both the building and Bayona Cafe.

feature in the works is hard cider. Soon customers will be able to come in and make their own batches of cider. Bottles will also be available for retail purchase. “Cider is a really trending thing right now,” he said. “There’s all sorts of cool flavors. We’ve already been testing recipes [such as] apple spice and raspberry lime.” Another focus will be bringing more attention to soda-making. Croswell said he wants to see birthday parties and Girl or Boy Scout troops come in to make soda for a fun night or to use in fundraisers. On the wine side, “We want to continue to grow our efforts, especially within some of the fundraising activities we have,” Croswell said. Currently, a portion of the proceeds from a bottle of their wine purchased at retail stores is donated to the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire and Humane Society of Greater Nashua. “That’s something Dave and Nancy had a huge passion for. It’s something we’re looking to not only continue but to grow,” he said. He’d like to do that by offering more varieties (right now the options are one red or one white). He also wants to work on private labeling with restaurants and people planning weddings (to use as favors, centerpieces or gifts). Croswell said he’ll still focus on social media, using Facebook and Twitter to help grow the business and expand IncrediBREW’s presence in the community.

At just about the 20th anniversary of bringing make-your-own beer, wine and soda to the greater Nashua community, IncrediBREW owners Dave and Nancy Williams have retired and husband and wife Erik and Sky Croswell will take over the next phase of the brewery’s life. Erik Croswell, a Groton, Mass., native who’s lived in New Hampshire for the past 15 years, first stepped into IncrediBREW when he was 21 years old. “First time I ever came here was with my dad and his soccer team,” he said. The team would gather together and get six kettles going to make different flavors of craft beer. “I fell in love with the place. I started bringing my friends here because we were just 21, and along the way I just really became good friends with Dave,” he said. Since 1999, Croswell has worked behind the scenes at IncrediBREW, helping with marketing. He revised the websites, updated social media accounts and performed other tasks that used his graphic design and web development background. Though he only took over as the new owner this month, Croswell always felt a strong connection to IncrediBREW and knew he wanted to be a part of its future. In a conversation with Williams a number of years ago, Croswell said that if the time came to start thinking about selling the business, he’d be happy to step up. “So that’s where we left it, and it just kind of stewed for years until recently we reconnected and we talked about the possibility of that happening and they were ready to retire,” Croswell said. “My wife and I just started pedaling as fast as we could to make it happen.” Switching roles from marketing to ownership will bring a number of changes for Croswell, including the chance to interact with patrons every day. He wants to focus on keeping the foundation the Williams set to engage the loyal customer base while also bringing in new faces, making sure each person that walks in has a great experience making drinks. “Every step of the way that experience has to be the same from the start of the day to the end of the day, and our energy level has to be up for that, and that’s pretty key,” he said. “That’s going to be the biggest thing for me, is how I can improve the experience overall.” Looking forward, Croswell has ideas for adjustments in multiple areas.

For the third year, local restaurants, catering companies, breweries, wineries and distilleries have the chance to highlight what they do best at the Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber of Commerce’s Taste of the Town on Thursday, April 23, at 6 p.m. “It got started a few years ago as a way to showcase all of the wealth of culinary activity we have in the Derry Londonderry region,” Will Stewart, president of the Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber of Commerce, said in a phone interview. “And also to allow residents and people around the region to be able to taste those under one roof on one night.” As the main representative of the business community in the area, the Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber of Commerce’s membership includes a number of the participating restaurants and food and drink vendors. “When an area’s culinary scene prospers, it shows that things are going well for everybody else too,” Stewart said, noting that the health of a region’s restaurants is indicative of the health of the general economic community. “When people are eating [out] it’s a good sign I think, and we want to promote that,” he said. “Plus we like to eat too, and it’s delicious.” Over 40 food and drink vendors will display their wares during Taste of the Town, which is set up as an expo-style event. Rows of booths will be arranged in the Castleton Banquet & Conference Center with high-top tables scattered about for people to go from table to table and enjoy the samples. “We want it to be a good networking event and give people a chance to talk and connect and make those business connections while also enjoying good food and beverage,” Stewart said. Guests at Taste of the Town will enjoy a selection of cuisines from Greek and Mexican food to ice cream and seafood. Participating vendors include Amphora Restaurant in Derry, Clam Haven in DerTaste of the Town When: Thursday, April 23, from 6 to 8 p.m., VIP at 5:30 p.m. Where: Castleton Banquet & Conference Center, 92 Indian Rock Road, Windham Cost: $40 chamber members, $45 non-members, $75 VIP.

With around 400 people in attendance at last year’s event from the chamber’s coverage area of Derry, Londonderry, Windham, Hampstead, Atkinson, Chester and Auburn, Stewart said the vendors bringing samples are excited for the chance to reach potential new patrons. “It’s a great opportunity for them to be seen and be noticed and serve people who might not have otherwise come through their doors,” he said. “They see the value of participating as a way to get in front of new people.” Proceeds for Taste of the Town will benefit the Kyle B. Ross Memorial Scholarship Fund, which awards a student graduating from an area high school $1,000 to use toward higher education. General admission to the event costs $45. VIP admission, which includes early entrance, a designated separate area and premium food, wine, beer and “swag bag,” costs $75. Tickets can be purchased online or over the phone.

THANK YOU HIPPO READERS FOR MAKING US NER #1 FOURTEEN YEARS IN IN A ROW!
We’ve had just a couple days of really nice weather and already my mind is going to summer, to those hot days where all anyone wants to do is sit outside and enjoy a cold adult beverage. Even though there are still no leaves on any trees around here, I can sense warm weather is just around the corner. Without a doubt, my absolute favorite summer ingredient is the lime. From guacamole to margaritas, that tangy citrus fruit is the cornerstone of summery cuisine. Refreshing and tart, limes add summer to any food or drink. For most of 2014, there was a significant lime shortage. Due in part to citrus disease and cold weather, lime trees didn’t flourish as well as usual. The Mexican drug cartels didn’t help either, according to news reports. Growers in Mexico were afraid Limey Margaritas

to transport their limes on trucks for fear of violence on the road. While much has cleared up in 2015, limes are still pricier than they were a few years ago. Like all citrus, limes are loaded with vitamin C. In addition to fighting off scurvy, limes are flavor-packed and low in calories, making them the perfect addition to many foods and drinks. Check out my recipe for margaritas. It can be enjoyed during the summer, but I recommend making it right now.

Regrettably, I haven’t been to Italy yet to taste its wine, but I feel a lot closer to it after a recent trip to Fulchino Vineyard in Hollis. The Italian-style villa looked inviting, and the tasting room was a welcome escape from the bad weather outside. We were greeted by Susan Fulchino, who noted that her husband, Al, was finishing up pruning the vines. It’s clear that a family history of winemaking has influenced Al and helped guide his current offerings. At 21, he inherited his grandfather’s wine press, which sits in the Fulchino tasting room today. He worked in the customer service industry for many years, running gas stations before shifting to the vineyard, yet winemaking has always been part of his life. Though he comes from a line of Italian winemakers, Al said, he was told that “you can’t grow grapes in New Hampshire.” But it’s all about growing the right grapes, and Granite State winemakers like Al are debunking that myth. Fulchino Vineyard is located in Hollis’ Pine Hill Valley, and Al said the location has been ideal for grape growing. Fulchino is entering its ninth growing season, currently offering 28 different wines, with about 80 percent of the grapes coming directly from its own vineyard, including Italian, French and French-American grapes. Also on its wine list are Montepulciano and Zinfandel, grapes that will not grow here, and two fruit wines that are made with Lavoie’s Farm produce. The vineyard uses a native New Hampshire yeast in the winemaking process, but no chemicals or cold stabilization. Though the vineyard isn’t certified organic, its practices make it pretty close. Because they bottle, cork and label everything by hand, some wines have limited production. Tasting room guests can always try several wines, but the selection may vary depending upon which wines are available and which are sold out. On the day we visited, two white wines — the Fronenac Gris and Sole Mio — were available for tasting while a few of their other popular selections were sold out. I enjoyed the Frontenac Gris and would definitely sip it on a warm summer day. Its crispness and acidity reminded me of pinot grigio, but it was smooth and pleasant in a way that some are not. Coming from an Italian winemaking background, Al makes his red wines in the

Burgundy style. When I asked him if that is because it’s what he likes, he said, “I don’t know any other style.” His philosophy is: let the flavors come through, don’t overoak and view wine as a food and a tool, not just a beverage. If you are an Italian wine fan like me, trying Fulchino’s wines is an experience. I had so many that I liked, I started to lose count, but here are some highlights. The 603 Vino is a medium-bodied dry wine, but don’t let the word “dry” scare you off. It is barrel aged for two years in French oak with dark fruit and herbal notes. It was probably the overall favorite for our group. Al recommends enjoying it with food. Classico is the vineyard’s third most popular wine and was unfortunately sold out during our visit, but a bottle was open for tasting. This wine was my personal favorite, capturing everything I love about Italian reds: good balance, acidity, complex flavors and just enough tannins. This is a pinot noir wine blend that Al described as having fruit on the front and tannins on the back. He recommends pairing it with pizza, pasta and grilled meats. Mirabella is one of Fulchino’s Signature Blends, named after the village where Al’s grandmother lived. According to the description, he spent many years perfecting this wine, and the result is fantastic. It is velvety smooth, with some slight sweetness that isn’t overpowering. Fulchino’s dessert wines are ideal for sweet wine lovers, capturing the aromas and essences of their fruits. Al suggested mixing them with Champagne or sparkling wine to make a nice cocktail. I especially enjoyed the aroma of the peach wine, while the strawberry was deliciously sweet. I am already looking forward to returning and trying other wines. For up to date tasting room hours and more information, visit FulchinoVineyard.com.

Los Angeles-based Marriages are made of the remnants of Red Sparowes, about whom I don’t know a lot and don’t really care, now that the core of the band has congregated here to make a valiant effort at making some interesting post-punk. Bandleader Emma Ruth Rundle and her Siouxsie-on-caffeine voice exude enough goth to keep the black-laundry patrol happy, and in the main her from-the-misty-mountaintop guitar sound is pure Cure, but instead of the expected half-there bass, her Sparowes cohort Greg Burns cranks the mud knob, making this stuff a unique hybrid, like hearing Melvins chasing Depeche Mode around with a katana in slow-mo. These guys are ready to break semi-big, but they’re going about that in possibly not the smartest fashion — they’ve opened for Deafheaven, of all people (which explains all the gloomy, rain-washed guitar flourishes and bony exposition), as well as Russian Circles, so the first splashes may just jolly come from the metal blogs, not that I’d be inclined to classify them as such. Brooding and shoegazey, for the most part; I’d put them on a Zola Jesus tour in a perfect world. A — Eric W. Saeger

The closest thing I can think of to this L.A. electronic duo is Golden Filter, mostly due to singer Katherine Mills-Rymer’s half-asleep waifishness. She’s even more lost-sounding than Penelope Trappes, a sort of cartoon version of Asteroids Galaxy Tour — you get the idea, a tech-age Betty Boop, but really sleepy. This project came about after Mills-Rymer and Danish laptop-wizard Jenno Bjørnkjær met in New York while he was soundtracking Melancholia, the second film in Lars Von Trier’s “Depression Trilogy” (which ended with Nymphomaniac). Underneath the somnambulist vocals, Bjørnkjær lays careful foundations made of such things as glitchy dubstep (“You’re Always Good”); brackish sea-turtle symphonics (“I Forgive You”) and world-class subatomic-trance/IDM (the outstanding “Snakehips”). This certainly wasn’t done over a few coffees; obviously a lot of thought went into the layering of these sounds, and the only effects I heard on Mills-Rymer’s voice were short periods of deep reverb. I could have done without the nasty electro of “Don’t Look,” but it does fit and sports a pretty mean little hook. Percussion isn’t a staple here; it’s a headphone record, a really superb one.

Have You Tried The Best Ice Cream? of a ¢.50 Off Sundae
PLAYLIST A seriously abridged compendium of recent and future CD releases
• On-again off-again Britrock quartet Blur are on again, with a new album called The Magic Whip. They’ve been off-again for a long time now, 12 years to be pedantic, but along the way you’ve rocked out to the members’ other projects, like Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz and, um, does Fat Les count? But this isn’t a solo project, it’s an actual Blur album, which really only happened because they were stuck in Hong Kong for five days after a festival got canceled, and they had to get past their hatred of each other and kill some time, so they started recording these songs. One of these songs is “There Are Too Many of Us,” a depressing slow-ska number whose title is self-explanatory and common-sensical. If their music is going to be this useless, hopefully they’ll take longer between albums. • Just when you thought Brian Jonestown Massacre couldn’t get weirder, they’ll be releasing Musique De Film Imaginé! This is said to be an homage to European film directors, which, basically it can sound like unlistenable minimalist cheese with a stinky retro flavor, which is exactly what you get with the test single, “Après le vin,” the video of which comprises slow, loving footage of the Titanic shipwreck and slow, hooty organ, like what you’d hear in the background of a scene where Simone Signoret literally counts her arm-hairs, I mean really tries to count every single one. I like BJM in general, but I do not like this, Sam I Am. • Yee hah, it’s a new arena-country LP from Zac Brown Band called Jekyll + Hyde! This rootin’ tootin’ slab of Walmartapproved honky-tonk features such songs as “Home Grown” (the obligato wistful pretend-wish for the old days, when they shoveled out chicken coops or whatever), “Heavy is the Head” (obligato wrestling-entrance hayseed-doom) and “Dress Blues” (obligato … wait, this isn’t that bad, it’s a nice Americana thing). There you are folks, yee hah. • You know about Dayton, OH’s Guided by Voices because you used to be hip, but did you know their leader, Robert Pollard, is considered one of the top 75 greatest songwriters ever? Well, at least one of the most prolific. He’s written a lot of songs. Did you know that the Ford Motor Company used to make a lot of Edsels? One of these Edsels, um, I mean songs, is called “Up and Up and Up,” which will be on his new solo album, Faulty Superheroes. This song sounds like The Kinks from 1966 but with off-key singing. It’s jangly and goes nowhere. But it is a notch in this famous songwriter’s belt, so you kids must respect his authoritah. — Eric W. Saeger

names. Why not create entirely new characters based on the female abolitionists? I wanted people to know about Sarah and Angelina, the real historical figures. I think they fell through a little crack in history in some ways. They’re not as widely known as they should be. … The novel is based on their lives, particularly Sarah’s of course, and you know, I stayed very true in many ways to her life and her history. I had to draft a lot of imagined events in her history, and that’s primarily her relationship with [Hetty]. … But the essence of her life in history is really there. … I think it’s a real intersection of fact and fiction.

And how did The Invention of Wings come about? I stumbled upon Sarah and Angelina when I was at a Brooklyn Museum “Dinner Party” exhibit [by artist Judy Chicago]. At the time, I was working on a memoir I co-authored with my daughter, Traveling with Pomegranates, and I wasn’t looking for a new book idea at that point. I like to finish a book and have a period in which I’m dormant — that’s my ideal world — but as I was finishing Traveling with Pomegranates, I went to this exhibit and these two sisters completely captured me. I had been living in Charleston, S.C., then, and I couldn’t believe what these two women had done, and that they had somehow escaped me. … Once I read about them, I knew almost immediately I wanted to write a novel about them.

HIPPO | APRIL 23 - 29, 2015 | PAGE 54
Interval, by Alice B. Fogel (Schaffner Press, 65 pages) In her 2009 primer on how to understand and enjoy poetry, Alice B. Fogel wrote of “Poem Traumatic Stress Disorder,” the affliction that dogs many earnest, intelligent readers who seem to be missing a poetry gene. To them, poetry represents “encoded messages only a certain kind of person can crack,” and Fogel proposed to help them form a “nonadversarial” relationship with verse in Strange Terrain: A Poetry Handbook for the Reluctant Reader. Six years later, Fogel is in her second year (of five) as New Hampshire’s poet laureate and has just released a new collection called Interval. It’s a slim paperback with a fascinating premise: poetry riffing off the masterful “Goldberg Variations” of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Mirroring those compositions, there are 30 poems here, each with 32 lines; all follow the theme set forth in a principal aria. Bach’s variations follow a central bass line. Fogel’s? Hard to tell. If you’re a poet laureate, it’s probably clear. To the rest of us yokels, it is indeed strange terrain. Here’s a sample, from the opening of Fogel’s “Variation 20: Duration.” In the law of distances never crossed/ that place destination’s adamant Along the azimuth gazed upon the greatest/ degree of longing either will Cleave the avenue of approach or longer prevent/ arrival: Such is your spiritual virga. “It’s hard to grasp, least of all by any mental logic, how the mathematical manipulation of sound into a structure of combined and ordered pitches can break one’s heart,” Fogel writes in the opening explanation. “What
makes a certain interval between notes, a certain pace or tempo, a subtle inversion after repetition, rip open the range of human emotion? Easier to explain particle physics, or the evolution of romantic love — or the intervals we’re allotted for our lives.” So far, so good. As is this: “Music, a traceable construct on paper, rises off the page, passes through the senses, and leaves a lingering physical and spiritual ache beyond definition and form; this project was born from the urge to make a poetry that might do the same.” Many of the poems here are excellent and moving, even to those with an adversarial relationship with verse. Variation 7, “Girl,” is a defiant chant from a teenager to her mother: Strange lands. I spiral that island, spinning, aswim./Yeah I know I can get pregnant now, but I’m not Planning to just yet. Don’t worry, Mom,/ I think I can give you till my junior year at least. Variation 13: “Artist”: How many more days across the shore of this shining field will real trees reach their snow/ Trunks down, go impossible lengths, into the illusory depth/fathomless in these few feet of snow? I want to plunge my hand Down to grasp them/ scrub their gathered skins Hard into my palms, but I know what I will hold: Only cold. And, Variation 24, “Leatherman,” is beautiful, with its description of an encounter “in a walking daydream on the narrow wooded trails.” I entered the deep smell of animal, brown, sweated, dense./Like a sudden memory in the
body upon waking … That animal odor/whetted me as if with the forest’s own rough tongue./Charged, I stood in the woods, in the full Smell of a barn with neither livestock nor walls, of a thing/set free to prey. The problem with Interval is not its poems but its promise, of some mystical union between Fogel’s words here and Bach’s otherworldly notes. Listening while reading, I endeavored to make the connection, frustrated all the more with the knowledge that the failing is probably mine, not the poet’s. But most people don’t read to feel badly about themselves. The recipient of a fellowship from The National Endowment of the Arts and an “amateur musicologist,” Fogel has studied the structure of the Goldberg Variations, which Bach published in 1741. Written for the harpsichord, though often performed on piano, the Variations are as much mathematic constructs as music: 10 groups of three segments of music, also “subtly halved into 15.” Fogel writes more to explain the structure, but if you’re not mathematically inclined, or an advanced musicologist, it will only make you tired. In her poetry, Fogel follows Bach’s form, but her poems are not intended to be accompaniment to the music, or any form of lyric. The voices represent “a range of actual, though fictional, living entities of differing ages, genders, species, time periods, and life circumstances, often fleeting,” she writes. In addition to Strange Terrain, Fogel published Be That Empty, a National Poetry Foundation bestseller, and her work has appeared in various journals and anthologies. The Acworth resident teaches creative writing at Keene State College. Interval is ambitious, and at some lofty level it might possibly be genius, but for the poetically challenged and musically obtuse, it bewilders. Better to read Strange Terrain. B- — Jennifer Graham
CHILDREN’S ROOM A weekly recommendation from the Concord Public Library
Space Song Rocket Ride Written by Sunny Scribens, illustrated by David Sim, sung by Mark Collins, 2014 (Informational picture book with CD, pre-school to grade 2)
This colorful, musical book and CD combination provides a lively introduction to the solar system. The book’s back pages offer some basic information on the universe and on the International Space Station. While not a book for in-depth research, this is a fun way to learn, and the music’s catchy chorus begs for a sing-along!

POP CULTURE FILM REVIEWS BY AMY DIAZ
Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (PG)
Kevin James returns to offer up the broadest possible broad (mostly physical) comedy in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, a sequel to the 2009 movie I’d mostly forgotten.
In particular, James and the movie seem to base at least half of the laughs on funny things James can do with his mustache and belly. You probably couldn’t get all of this movie’s gags by watching it with the sound off, but you could get a good portion of them. Paul Blart (James), security officer at a New Jersey mall, ended the last movie on a life high point — he turned down his dream job with the police to stay and protect the mall and he married his first-movie love interest, played by Jayma Mays. Apparently, Mays had better things to do than appear in this movie, because in 2’s opening scenes we learn that she divorced Paul after six days of marriage, after which Paul’s mother (played by Shirley Knight) was hit by a bus. A grief-stricken Paul is saved from utter loneliness only by Maya (Raini Rodriguez), his teenage daughter. Maya, however, has her own plans, which include going to college at UCLA, which has just accepted her. She rushes to tell her dad the news but decides to keep it a secret after he shares his own news: he’s been invited to a security officers conference in Las Vegas and he’s bringing her with him. Since Las Vegas isn’t all that different from a giant mall, Paul Blart eventually finds himself in the familiar situation of bringing together a dedicated band of security officers to thwart an art heist run by the villainous Vincent (Neal McDonough, who is an old hand at being a slightly unhinged villain, thanks in part to Justified). Of course, a little crime and mayhem is nothing compared to his learning that not only is Maya planning to go to college across the country but also that, gasp, she’d rather hang out with a cute boy (David Henrie) she meets in Vegas than with her dad and

his security officer brethren. A family sitting behind me in the theater where I saw this movie laughed at the moments of wacky dad humor (hiding behind a luggage cart to spy on Maya and her new friend, for example), the moments of wacky James physical comedy (he wriggles across the floor to catch a few drops of melting ice cream falling from a kid’s cone because his low blood sugar has felled him like Superman wearing kryptonite bling) and the moments of situational wackiness (like the climactic face-off between Vincent’s interchangeable henchmen and a group of security officers). I didn’t find any of these scenes particularly funny but I understand why they might be funny, particularly if you’re looking for a lowpressure comedy that the whole family over the age of, say, 10 can watch together. (And yes, you probably have seen all of those scenes I mentioned in the trailers. This is the kind of movie where the trailer isn’t just the highlights but a better-edited, preferable-in-length version of the movie.) It’s unfair (to sitcoms) to compare this movie to a laugh-tracked sitcom; Paul Blart doesn’t quite hit the comedy level of James’ own late-1990s, early-aughts show The King of Queens. The movie feels more

like a calculated business decision (it will eventually earn, you know, enough) than a story that needed to be told about this character. If anything, Paul is an even thinner, less dimensional character than in the first movie. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 succeeds only at not being offensive or aggressively terrible and offering those family members who are bored by the sub-par antics an hour and a half of potential sleep time. CRated PG for some violence. Directed by Andy Flickman and written by Kevin James & Nick Bakay, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is an hour and 34 minutes long and distributed by Columbia Pictures.
True Story (R)
A disgraced journalist tries to save his career by profiling a man accused of murdering his family in True Story, an odd little story that is, indeed, based on a true story.
Early in the movie, we meet two men calling themselves Michael Finkel, reporter for the New York Times. One is interviewing children who are part of slave labor, another is in Mexico, apparently hitting on a blonde German tourist. Not surprisingly, it is the former who turns out to be the real Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill), a reporter whose in-
depth investigations in far-flung places turn into cover stories for the New York Times Magazine. When he learns, shortly after his most recent piece was published, that some of the top editors want to meet with him, he thinks the subject of their meeting might rhyme with Shmulitzer. As it turns out, the meeting is actually about issuing a big honking shmorrection because Finkel smooshed together elements from a variety of slavelabor-kids’ stories and passed it off as one kid’s story. Instead of triumphantly carrying home another magazine for his wife, Jill (Felicity Jones), to frame and hang in their Montana home, he leaves the Times office with a box full of his belongings. He mopes, trying fruitlessly to sell story ideas to other publications and generally, it seems, contemplating the death of his career. Then one day he gets a call from a reporter in Oregon. A man arrested for the murder of his family had apparently been on the run for a while and had identified himself as Michael Finkel from the New York Times. His real name is Christian Longo (James Franco). The reporter was calling the real Michael for comment but sensing a possible story, Michael writes a letter to Christian, asking for an interview and playing up the fact that he too (real Michael) has gone through a kind of public trial. Christian agrees to meet with Michael and, eventually, what Michael thought might be an article turns into an idea to write a book about Christian. Franco and Hill, both part of the extended Judd Apatow universe, have a weird chemistry, which gives Christian and Michael a weird chemistry. Franco and Hill’s inherent buddy-ness make it hard to understand how the movie wants us to see the relationship between Christian and Michael. Michael makes a deal with Christian wherein he gets to interview and write about Christian if he holds his book until after the trial and if he (Michael) agrees to help Christian polish his writing skills. The result is that a kind of friendship forms between these men. But is it a fake friendship of opportunity, with one or both men pretending to have some kind

For example, maybe your kid has had footage of them being drunk at a party posted of them online, part of which you don’t see right away, but which is awful enough
to cause other kids to pile on with “kill urself” messages. We see part of the party footage, as well as a bit of the suicide footage of said kid — one Laura Barns — as the movie opens on what is the anniversary of her death. We watch Blaire’s (Shelley Hennig) computer screen while she views these YouTube videos about Laura when boyfriend Mitch (Moses Jacob Storm) Skypes her. They talk about Laura, once a friend of Blaire’s, but also about their plans for prom (including the classic Doing It For The First Time) and even engage in a bit of foreplay. Before they can go too far, their friends Adam (Will Peltz), Jess Tammy (Renee Olstead) and Ken (Jacob Wysocki) barge in somehow, even though both Blaire and Mitch claim not to have answered their group call, as does some mystery icon indicating another person is part of their Skype session. They can’t seem to hang up on the person so they decide it’s a glitch — that is until strange messages come to Blaire, seemingly from Laura’s Facebook page. At first, the group thinks that maybe another girl, Val (Courtney Halverson), is somehow involved. But then the anonymous Skyper starts to interact with the group, who can’t tell if they’re being trolled by some random Internet creep or by something more malevolent. Despite the fact the the whole movie takes place, essentially, on one girl’s computer screen (she Skypes and instant messages and Facebooks and even Chatroulettes), Unfriended is very standard horror fare. A group of kids — which includes, as always, the virginal girl, her boyfriend, some cattier girls, a guy who is a total jerk and a guy who is comic relief and offers some geek knowledge — is basically secluded (though here it’s virtually, rather than in a run-down cabin in a swamp) and then picked off one by one, revealing secrets and arguing with each other along the way. The movie does this rather straightforwardly, without even the jump scares that are the hallmark of cheesy teen horror. In fact there’s little about this movie that is, strictly speaking, horrifying or scary at all. Except, as I said before, to me, a person a good generation removed from having this being my high school experience. This, to me, seems horrifying — not the possible dead person communicating via Skype but the cataloging of every misdeed of your most awkward time so that all your future employers and boyfriends and in-laws can see it. Yeesh, sends chills down the spine. The movie portrayal of modern teenhood, that is, not Unfriended itself. D+ Rated R for violent content, pervasive language, some sexuality, and drug and alcohol use — all involving teens. Directed by Leo Gabriadze and written by Nelson Greaves, Unfriended is an hour and 23 minutes long and is distributed by Universal Pictures.
of bond to get what they want? Or is Christian supposed to be charismatic enough to draw in the desperate Michael? Does Michael believe that Christian is innocent or at least more innocent than people think? It’s hard to tell what the movie wants us to believe. Christian won’t talk to Michael about the night his family died and so it’s not until Christian is on trial that we hear all the details (both the prosecution’s story and Christian’s story) about how Christian is believed to have murdered his wife and their three young children. By then, the murdered woman’s family believes Michael to be either a vulture or an apologist for Christian, and Michael’s own wife is starting to question his obsession with the case. At least, that’s what I think she’s doing, when she stares at all the notes Christian has sent Michael, which he’s pinned up in the office. I’m not entirely certain what the movie is doing in the many scenes where Felicity Jones stares at things or with a scene late in the movie where she goes to see Christian for no good reason. The movie treats Jones a bit the way contestants on Chopped treat that one ingredient they don’t know how to use, the strange dried fruit or the corn tortillas — here, let’s just toast a bit of this and throw it on top for garnish. “Unneeded, unnecessary garnish” is probably the best way to describe what Jones is to this movie. The movie seems unclear about a lot of what’s happening — not just Jill but Michael and Christian’s relationship, just what kind of psychopath Christian is (is he smart? stupid like a fox? just stupid?), why he did what he did and what exactly Michael is looking for. The result is that I left the theater thinking “huh, that was interesting” — suitably engrossed by the movie I just watched but not willing to go so far as to say that I liked it. Or disliked it, for that matter. True Story doesn’t inspire strong feelings, just the sense that this strange, curious story wasn’t quite made with the finesse to be the smart, dark drama that I think it wants to be. C Rated R for language and some disturbing material. Directed by Rupert Goold with a screenplay by Rupert Goold and David Kajganich (from a memoir by Michael Finkel), True Story is an hour and 39 minutes long and is distributed by Fox Searchlight.

The Wailin’ Jennys stop in Concord By Michael Witthaus
Four years have passed since the last Wailin’ Jennys album. Creatively, however, the group’s three members haven’t slowed down a bit. Nicky Mehta wrote the music for a Winnipeg dance production of Pippi Longstocking and is currently working on a solo record. Heather Masse released the jazzy Lock My Heart in 2013 and began collaborating with trombone player Roswell Rudd in early spring. But Ruth Moody may be the busiest of all. Moody, who cofounded the folk Americana trio with Mehta more than a decade ago, made the well-received These Wilder Things in 2013, following up 2010’s The Garden. She also sang on myriad projects, including records from Canadian bluegrass stalwarts The Fretless, songwriter Daryl Purpose, a Jackson Browne tribute collection and Mark Knopfler’s two most recent albums. The first half of 2015 found Moody wrapping a U.S. solo trek and European dates with Knopfler around the current Jennys tour, which stops at the Capitol Center in Concord on May 2. All the extracurricular work is good for the trio, Moody said in a recent phone interview. “We have more scope, more experiences to draw from,” she said. “I think it helps us to grow as musicians to go off and learn and then come back and see where everyone’s been.” For Knopfler’s just-released Tracker, Moody shared lead vocals on the ballad “Wherever I Go” — though she wasn’t really told of her prominent role in advance. “I guess he had sort of mentioned that it might be nice for me to take a verse,” she said. “I thought, that’s a nice idea but it will never happen. Then I got to the studio and he went, ‘OK, this is what we want.’ Needless to say, it’s a huge honor to sing a duet with him, and I’m glad I didn’t actually think about it too much.” The tune’s weary-traveler theme struck a chord with Moody, a constantly touring musician. The Wailin’ Jennys Roots trio The Stray Birds open the show When: Saturday, May 2, 8 p.m. Where: Capitol Center for the Arts, 44 S. Main St., Concord Tickets: $28-$38 at ccanh.com

“It’s ambiguous who the narrator is, who’s being addressed, what kind of relationship it is — which I love, and as someone who’s kind of perpetually displaced, it actually made me cry the first time I heard the working track,” she said. “It’s a gorgeous song.” The Jennys’ live schedule is dialed back these days, mainly due to parental demands. Mehta had twin boys in 2009, and Masse gave birth to a son in 2012. “In the past we toured a lot and it became almost the only thing in our lives,” Moody said. “I feel like we have a really healthy approach to it now. We have more balance.” Thirteen-plus years down the road, walking on stage with the Jennys still provides the same spark. “When Nicky and I co-founded the group, we were such spring chickens,” Moody said. “Yet it still feels fresh, good and right, and we’re still inspired by it. … I don’t know if I like the word ‘safe,’ but it feels like home and it never gets old.” In fits and starts, the group is working on material to follow up 2011’s Juno winner Bright Morning Stars. Moody said that winning the Canadian version of a Grammy for their first studio effort with newest member Masse was satisfy-
ing, but also a surprise. “We had already won a Juno so we weren’t expecting it or anything. I mean, Heather reminds us that when they called our name we looked at each other in complete disbelief for about 10 seconds.” Though born in Canada, the band gained solid New England bona fides with the addition of Masse in 2007, at the urging of Crooked Still’s RUTH MOODY Aoife O’Donovan. Masse’s audition — if that’s the right word — happened in the bathroom of a Philadelphia folk club. “It was really the only place to go,” Moody said. “We sang a couple of songs and knew right away. The blend was already there, and she has a beautiful voice and her range was … the way she fit in with us was great. It was love at first sound.” Moody expects the trio will perform a few new songs at the Capitol Center show. An upcoming appearance on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion provided added urgency in that department. “We feel like we have to have a couple of new ones,” Moody said with a laugh. “It’s true, that’s the key. Whenever we play on Prairie Home, we go, ‘Crap, we need to do something new!’ It gets us working on that.”
I think it helps us grow as musicians to go off and learn and then come back and see where everyone’s been.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
In March, offensive lineman John Urschel of the Baltimore Ravens added to his curriculum vitae by co-authoring the latest of his several peer-reviewed academic articles, “A Cascadic Multigrid Algorithm for Computing the Fiedler Vector of Graph Laplacians,” in the Journal of Computational Mathematics. If Urschel can understand, and even advance, tangled, obtuse formulas (which use familiar numbers, e.g., 1, 2, 3, and Greek letters such as phi, lambda, and sigma lots of sigmas), why is he a football player, he asked himself on the Players Tribune website. “There’s a rush you get when you go out on the field . . . and physically dominate the player across from you.” He added, “I love hitting people.”

Newly elected Alabama state Sen. Larry Stutts, in one of his first actions in office, introduced a bill to repeal “Rose’s Law,” a 1999 legislation that, had it been on the books the year before, might have saved the life of new mother Rose Church, whose doctor was OB/GYN Larry Stutts. Rose’s Law gave new mothers a legal right to remain hospitalized for up to 96 hours after birth, depending on circumstances, but the new senator calls that right just another “Obamacare-style law” in which legislators in Montgomery intrude into doctors’ decisions. (Stutts also proposed to repeal the requirement for written cautions to patients whose mammograms show unusual density.) Though her daughter survived, Rose died of a heart attack following two “doctor’s decision” hospital releases, and her husband’s Great art • The National Gallery of Australia wrongful-death lawsuit against Stutts and hosted a special series of tours of “James others reached a settlement in 2005.

I don’t feel locked up in a tiny world.”

In January, the principal of W.F. Burns Middle School in Valley, Alabama, sent home a letter to parents with her suggestions on how to train students in the event an active shooter breaks into the classroom. In order not to be “sitting ducks” for the intruder, each child was asked to be armed with an 8-ounce canned food item to toss at any potential spree-killer. The can is designed to give the student a “sense of empowerment” in the face of extreme danger, the principal told WHNT-TV of Huntsville, but acknowledged that “(T)his is a sensitive topic.”
• Kimberly Kitchen, 45, was a successful estate lawyer in Huntington, Pennsylvania, with more than 30 clients for the BMZ Law firm (so successful in her 10-year career that she had just been promoted to partner and had served as president of the local bar association) with but one complication that in December she was finally revealed not to be a lawyer at all. Her diploma, bar exam results and other documents were forgeries, according to the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office, which filed charges in March.

Dan Kennedy of Salt Lake City was driving to work on March 31 when a large bag fell off of the truck in front of him, and, for traffic safety, he stopped to move it from the road and discovered it contained about 75 pounds’ worth of U.S. currency (about $22,000) in a plastic bag marked with the name of the Brinks armored truck company. The bag remained sealed, and Kennedy dutifully contacted state troopers and handed it over. He sounded perplexed when Brinks immediately sent him a $5,000 gift check. “Why would I get anything for that?” “Almost anyone,” he said, would have done what he did.
Police in India, seeking to reduce tensions between Muslims and Hindus over the theft and butchering of cattle (which the latter hold sacred), requested that local farmers send them cow “mugshots,” along with other biographical information, such as why the farmer has the cow in the first place, so they could build a database to improve bovine security.
