New Growth at Newport Vineyards By Jonathan Clancy The history behind Newport Vineyards is as lush as the nutrient-rich soil where its vines are rooted. What began in 1977 as a small vineyard on the bank of the Sakonnet River has matured into an award-winning winery, annually producing between 15,000 and 18,000 cases of wine in over 30 styles ranging from singlegrape varietals to blends, sparkling wines to ports, ice wines, and even a widely popular hard cider, Rhody Coyote, made from locally grown apples. “I think the biggest change has been the acceptance of wines from this region,” said co-owner John Nunes of the vineyard’s success. Owners and brothers John Jr. and Paul Nunes, who have seen steady sales growth over the past ten years, recently decided to renovate their current setup to increase production and enhance the vineyard experience for their patrons. The 51-acre plot of land on Wyatt Road in Middletown, formerly known as Bailey Farm, dates back to 1701. In 1917, it was purchased by Francisco Nunes. The land was likely used for pasture, and to grow hay, corn, and later potatoes. In 1977, retired Navy captain Richard Alexander planted ten acres on the banks of the Sakonnet River with French-American wine grapes. He did so with the help of his neighbors, family and

Belcourt Castle, a Gilded Age masterpiece and one of Bellevue Avenue's most storied summer cottages, has been sold to Carolyn Rafaelian, the founder of Cranstonbased jewelry manufacturer Alex and Ani. Last week, as the terms of the sale were being finalized, Rafaelian spoke about her attraction to the property and her plans for its future. The purchase, which was finalized on Monday, was reported at $3.6 million, and included all of the mansion’s contents. Rafaelian, who's gained national attention for the meteoric rise of her jewelry company, said that she plans to restore the property to its former grandeur and to open it for private events. She also plans to rename the property “Belcourt of Newport.” Designed by Richard Morris Hunt, the 50,000-square-foot manse draws heavily upon Gothic

friends, including Peter Nunes, cousin of current winery owners John and Paul Nunes. For the next eleven years, Alexander worked what he called the Schoolyard Vineyard, experimenting with different types of grape varietals and producing small batch wines to see what grapes would produce best in Aquidneck’s unique microclimate. Due to the vineyard’s high elevation on the island, a constant gentle breeze keeps the leaves of the vines dry. Proximity to the ocean provides a long, cool growing season. The deep, rich soils combined with the Nunes’

Wine Cellars, was built in 1988 and represented the long partnership between the Nunes Family and Alexander. Also in 1988, winemaker George Chelf was brought in to press the grapes for the vineyard’s first vintage. In 1995, when John and Paul Nunes acquired the winery operation from Alexander, the name was changed to Newport Vineyards.

City Councilors were poised this month to approve a long-term plan to curb the number of combined sewer overflows discharged into Newport Harbor. On Wednesday, councilors gave their approval to a proposed Systemwide Master Plan proposed by the city's department of utilities and endorsed by a CSO Stakeholder Working Group. Part of the city's ongoing effort to improve water quality in the harbor, the landmark document, which is required to be submitted to regulators by Nov. 30, is a critical pice of a consent agreement entered into by the city with the state Department of Environmental Management and Environmental Protection Agency. And, at a price tag of close to $100 million, the program is also proving to be expensive. Calling for several strategies designed to "reduce the volume and frequency of discharges from the CSO treatment facilities through use of a combination of inflow reduction, conveyance, and wastewater treatment projects," once complete, the project is anticipated to cost $99.7 million.

City OKs Block Island Fast Ferry By Tom Shevlin

The city administration has recommended that the council extend a one-year trial period to allow the operators of the Block Island ferry to operate a daily fast ferry from Newport's Perrotti Park. In a letter to the city administration written last month, Interstate Navigation Co. asked for permission to use the floating docks at Perrotti Park as a base for their operation. Currently used as a hub for private harbor shuttle operators as well as a debarkation point for cruise ship passengers, the docks are already the city's most prominent public harborfront facility, serving as a gateway to and from the water. Interstate Navigation currently operates a year-round conventional passenger and freight ferry service between Point Judith and Block Island. It also operates a seasonal passenger fast ferry service between Point Judith and Block Island. More recently, it has operated a limited seasonal conventional passenger ferry service between Newport and Block Island from Fort Adams State Park. Earlier this summer, the company received a Certificate of Public

Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) from the state's Division of Public Utilities and Carriers that allows it to operate seasonal fast ferry service between Newport and Block Island. Interstate's current plan is to discontinue the conventional slow ferry seasonal run between Fort Adams and Block Island, which operated just once per day and took about two hours each way, and replace it with a more frequent schedule that would take passengers from downtown Newport to Old Harbor in less than an hour. After being asked to review the proposal and observing the ferry's operation in and out of the downtown docks, Harbormaster Timothy Mills found no cause for concern that would prohibit the vessel from using the facility. In considering the proposal, Mills noted that "Safety is as always a priority." He also said that while the vessel is large by comparison to other vessels, he was pleased with what he saw during a trial run using a vessel similar to the one that would be used next summer. "During the trial run on October 10th, the weather was optimal

with light to variable easterly wind and virtually no sea state," Mills reported to council. "The 'Athena' (an 89-foot jet drive fast ferry) maneuvered in and out of all the slips at Perrotti Park, some stem first and some bow first. The 'Athena' crew did so in a proficient and expeditious manner. Vessel traffic was minimal. As the Athena worked her way north towards Long Wharf, the area in which she could maneuver became smaller and more complex. The crew handled the additional complexity with ease." He also noted that given the limited number of trips being proposed, he does not foresee the ferry having a negative impact on the city's existing harbor shuttle service. He raised one concern: "The 'Athena' as well as the proposed Ferry are both water jet driven vessels," Mills said. "This type of vessel uses a large volume of water directed by nozzles to provide its propulsion. This creates a wash behind or around the vessel similar to propeller wash with conventionally powered vessels. The concern with

However, following Mr. Tinney’s death in 2006, the property was listed for sale in 2009 by his widow Harle Tinney for $7.2 million. The price was reduced twice to $3.9 million. Belcourt would cost upwards of $70 million to build today. Rafaelian says it will remain open to the public for special events and weddings. According to the city's zoning office, private functions such as fundraisers and rented events are permitted on the property. Tinney, who is expected to play a role in Belcourt’s restoration, was not immediately available for comment, however Rafaelian has said that she will be involved. "Mrs. Tinney – who has had such a love affair for owning that home – I think it was very difficult to her to just give it up to just anyone," Rafaelian said. "I think she needed to find someone who was going to continue the legacy of what Belcourt was.”

Belcourt Castle is the latest in a string of high-profile purchases for Rafaelian or her company. Earlier this year, Rafaelian announced plans to buy Little Compton's Sakonnet Vineyards, while her company separately acquired Wilson's of Wickford. On Monday, Belcourt’s information board was draped with an American flag – a symbol found throughout Alex and Ani's marketing. Listing agent Kate Leonard, of Lila Delman Real Estate, said she's confident Rafaelian will do well by Belcourt, and Newport. "I'm proud to have been able to represent this significant and historic property - it's exciting to help this great old house move towards a new future," she said. Rafaelian said she plans to continue recent efforts to restore the property. Purchased by the Tinney family in 1956 for $25,000, the house became a labor of love for them.

and French Renaissance architecture, and has been described as a bit “eccentric” when compared to its contemporaries. Built between 1891 and 1894 as the summer cottage of Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont, Belcourt Castle quickly became one of Bellevue Avenue's most famous homes, surrounded by intrigue courtesy of its young, wealthy owner. In addition to its design quirks, (the house was famously built to accommodate Belmont's prized stable of horses), it was also the center of a romance between the young bachelor and his wife, the former Alva Vanderbilt. Together, the couple set Newport society aflutter with their courtship and eventual marriage. Rafaelian's locally-made jewelry line, which she founded in 2006, has blossomed into one of the country's fastest-growing lifestyle brands. Speaking from her Cranston headquarters, she said that it has always been a dream of hers to own a piece of Newport history, and to be a part of its future. Describing herself as "a life-long lover" of Newport's mansions, Rafaelian said that restoring Belcourt reflects her desire to reinvest in Rhode Island. "This is something that I could put my stamp on to bring it back to its original glory," Rafaelian said. Alex and Ani CEO Giovani Feroce agreed. "Part of our strategic plan has been to reinvest in Rhode Island, and therefore the trend early on and in the future is to invest in the iconic entities of Rhode Island," he said. "[Purchasing] Belcourt Castle is an opportunity to take wellearned dollars made by Rhode Islanders and put them right back into the state."

For What It’s Worth Mr. Santi: This needlepoint has been in our family a long time. My father purchased it before WWII and it has hung in his office until recently. He loved patriotic symbols and this picture of Washington was one of his prized possessions. Can you tell me anything about it and what it is worth? It is about 3’ x 5’ in size. —Tom B.

City Seeks Economic Development Director City Hall is putting out a call for an economic development director. The position, which was posted on the city’s website on Friday, involves a range of activities, from planning and development to marketing the city to businesses, brokers and other economic development professionals. As a director-level position, the job will carry a salary ranging from $80,000-115,000. City Council members earlier this year directed the city administration to make economic development a top priority for the city, and a dedicated economic development working group reinforced that commitment. Following the reorganization of the city’s planning department in which a director-level post was eliminated, the city moved to bring in an economic development director. The city last hired an economic development director in 2007. The position, which was limited in scope, was then filled by Jonathan Stevens, now an aide to Gov. Chafee.

Tom: We have seen other examples of this needlepoint depicting George Washington over the years. It is after a portrait completed by Gilbert Stuart in 1796. We suspect that yours along with the other examples date from 1876: the Centennial of the founding of the country. There must have been a pattern available because each one we have seen is identical to yours. Yours looks in excellent condition and would have a value of between $3,500 and $5,000.

New Owner Announced For four decades, J.H.Breakell & Co. has been the source for original marine & nature inspired jewelry designed and handcrafted in Newport. Founders of the business, James and Joan Breakell announced the sale of their company to Angel Luis Gonzalez, Designer and Platinumsmith, who also owns The Platinum House in the Brick Market Place.

Ocean Drive Repairs to Begin Next Week Work to repair portions of Ocean Drive damaged by Hurricane Sandy is slated to get underway as early as next week. According to Public Services Director Bill Riccio, bids were being received as of Thursday, Nov. 15, to shore up the scenic roadway. With funding provided through a U.S. Department of Transportation emergency relief program, Riccio said that the work will go a long way to restoring the road while having minimal impact on the city’s bottom line. It’s not clear how much the project will cost, and contractors likely won’t have a full scope of work until they get further into the contract. However, attention is expected to be paid to Green Bridge and the Gooseneck Cove area, as well as the seawalls and roadway around Brenton Point State Park. In addition to the work around Ocean Drive, the city is also hoping to receive emergency funds to make repairs to Easton’s Beach and the Cliff Walk.

EDITORIAL Time to Set Aside Smears


ll eyes turned to Bellevue Avenue this week as news broke that Belcourt Castle had been sold. The price tag for the property – and all of the contents therein – totaled $3.6

million. Throughout Twittersphere, and across Facebook, the news spread. It was a lot of money to spend on a house, but perhaps not so much for aGilded Age mansion. Meanwhile, on Broadway, city councilors committed to an outlay of their own. However, this one totaled $100 million, or just over $3.5 million for the next 30 years. The city's proposal to reduce the number and volume of combined sewer overflows that are discharged into Newport Harbor may not be as intriguing as the purchase of one of Newport's famous "summer cottages," however its effects are infinitely greater. Ensuring that our native waters are clean is not just a matter of public health, but also a source of civic pride. More than our mansions, museums, and shops, Narragansett Bay is our most valuable attraction and precious resource. It's been a long and at-times contentious process, but the city's decision to endorse a Systemwide Master Plan is a monumental achievement for our environment. It is an equally formidable accomplishment for the dedicated volunteers who first brought public attention to the issue, and who have now seen this project through. It is both a testament to the power of the public, and the professionalism of our city staff. However, looking beyond the well-wishing and the pride which we should all share in, it's hard to ignore the staggering cost we now face. If there were ever a case to be made about the dangers of unfunded mandates, one needn't look beyond Newport, where in the last 12 months the city has committed to spending upwards of $170 million in order to comply with federal regulators. And who's to pay for it all? Local ratepayers, of course. Perhaps it's time that the City Council holds a public meeting with our federal Congressional delegation to share in all our civic pride.

On the Mayor's Race

Speaking of the council, if you haven't noticed, Newport's top elected body has been on a roll of late. Over the last 18 months, projects that had seemed to languish have moved from concept to reality. Both Thames Street and Spring Street have been repaved; strides are being made to improve the city's communication efforts; upgrades are in progress to our drinking water infrastructure; and there is now a concerted effort to spur real economic development. Much of the progress can be traced back to a series of strategy sessions that began shortly after the new year in 2011, and which continued following the appointment of City Manager Jane Howington in January of 2012. On Thursday, pledging to keep the ball rolling, the council-elect was poised to elect Henry F. Winthrop to a full term as mayor, and Naomi L. Neville as the council's vice chair. Given the number of challenges the city faces, and the number of projects yet to be finished, we're pleased to see this year's mayoral selection progress go so smoothly, and we look forward to seeing the council continue on its current path.

Praise for Duncan To the Editor: Charlie Duncan was the only person running for city office who had the clear conscience of voting his beliefs rather than what's popular on Bellevue Avenue. Each and every person on the city council voted in favor of the NRF's tragic annexation of Queen Anne Square, a public park belonging to the citizens of Newport not the NRF. Not one city council member voting in favor of the park can give a cogent reason why they voted in that manner. Not one. Most claim they

didn't know that "the opposition was so numerous or impassioned." They must not read the papers or attend public forums. The aftermath? Queen Anne Square has been declared a toxic waste site by the RIDEM, the previous "mayor" resigned in disgrace ,and the about-to-be elected officials will race like lemmings to secure their own selfish interests... again.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Complaint Process is Needed To the Editor: We all depend on employees of our City, the Firefighters and Police for our protection. While I greatly respect most of our Firefighters who are decent and hardworking people, there are exceptions, and we know people are not perfect just because they have the title of 'Fireman' or 'Policeman'. Respect is earned. I recently looked at the news for examples: a Portland, Maine firefighter beat a woman and left her lying in the street (August 30, 2012) and a Marion County Firefighter in Arkansas hit a homeowner over the head with a hammer in the resident's driveway after setting his truck on fire (October 30, 2012) and is now in jail for 2 counts of arson and assault charges. These are just 2 of 10 or more recent events around the country. Here in Newport, while most City employees are good folks, it is ALARMING that there is no process in place at City Hall for a citizen to

file a civil complaint against the behavior of any employee. I have been consistently harassed by a Newport City Firefighter for several years and City Manager, Jane Howington and her Staff, and our City Fire Chief Mr. Connerton, have all chosen to turn their backs on the issue. This same individual has even expressed that he will see that if my home ever catches fire, he will be sure it burns to the ground before anyone gets to my door. How is it possible that there is no process for a citizen to file a grievance against a city employee? There should be a process in place so that the a 'thug' like this Firefighter, who puts a black eye on the entire Fire Department can be dealt with before something like what happened in Arkansas or Maine happens to another good citizen. As taxpayers, we all deserve a voice and better processes! Nancy E. Custin Newport

Thankful for Every Day To the Editor: I was hoping I could just take a moment and give thanks for all the things I am grateful for at the moment. It is a little different. Yes, I did not “win” on Queen Anne Square and no, not all my choices got on the Council and certainly I was on the wrong side of the table games question. However, everything else came out the way I wanted/predicted. For more, you can check out at your convenience. In the meantime, I am so thankful for the opportunity to live here in Newport. Instant serenity is just two miles away in any direction. An instant connection to the past is usually around the next corner. I am thankful that my Higher Power led me here to carry the message of sobriety. Many folks know that Monday through Friday, I run a fellowship meeting every morning. (Tradition prohibits me from telling you what fellowship it is.) Carrying the message is the only way I can stay sober myself, over 10 years now, and I cannot think of a place I would rather do that. I am grateful for the folks I get to learn from. Whether it is in the political arena or some business pursuit, there are an incredible number of experienced people who have retired here or still employ

their craft here. Every day can be like a Masters’ seminar if you let it. I am grateful for my health and how it plays into my surroundings. Not every guy who is almost 46 wakes up with a bp of 110/70, a standing pulse rate of 48 and the liver output of a 26 year old. A lot of that has to do with being blessed with running 5 miles 6 times a week. Can you imagine a prettier place to run no matter what direction you head in? To prove that I may not be exactly in my right mind, I am even grateful for the sidewalks. Yes, I know they have caused a tumble or two, nothing close to that spectacular wipeout in Akron last summer, but in many places there are no sidewalks to run on. A runner is forced into the street or onto some pretty sketchy just off road terrain. I am grateful that I live in a place where it is easy to create change of all kinds. That means any situation can be improved through hard work. Yes, I, like everybody else, cannot win them all. However, just by being here, I am actually ahead of others who might “win” more but not live here. Maybe for me this is an overdue lesson. Robert T. Oliveira Newport

This Time, ‘the House’ Lost To the Editor: This latest casino rejection was in honor and in grateful memory of the late Capt. Howard Kay and Don Booth who, along with Dave Leys and others, founded Citizens Concerned About Casino Gambling (CCACG) back in 1977. As is well known, they led many successful struggles against attempts to bring casinos to Newport over these many years and rallied supporters of CCACG time and time again to turn back one attempt after another. While many states and communities are now jumping on the casino bandwagon and establishing these gambling emporiums rather than taking on the more difficult challenges of creating real economic development, not so the citizens of the City of Newport. Our community made it clear on Election Day that we are not like everyplace else and that the answer to the fiscal problems of Newport and Rhode Island cannot be found in these predatory “house always wins” establishments. The clear simple message is that we must take on the more difficult and more meaningful challenges immediately and stop looking for the easy money in these sad places. Howard Kay and Don Booth would have been truly proud and grateful for the Election Day decision by today’s voters which clearly sent the message that “not on their watch” would a casino be located anywhere in Newport. However, they often warned, as we surely understand, that “they will always be back.” For the citizens of Newport, to be forewarned is to be forearmed. Dave Wixted Newport

By Tom Shevlin City Council members on Wednesday got behind Sail Newport's efforts to secure a coveted North American Stopover for the next iteration of the Volvo Ocean Race. In a resolution sponsored by councilor (and sailor) Naomi L. Neville, councilors formally gave their consent and desire to serve as the U.S. stopover, scheduled for some time in the spring of 2015. The race, which spans eight months and 40,000 nautical miles, has become one of the most highprofile events in sailing. Although Newport has yet to host an event, the city has been well represented over the last two races as Newporter Ken Read has led Puma's VOR efforts to two consecutive podium positions on boats that were built and based on Narragansett Bay. Should Newport be chosen to host a leg of the 2015 race, it could prove to be an economic boon to the city as well as the state's marine trades, and further raise Rhode Island's profile as an international racing venue. According to the resolution, "The City of Newport has always been and remains a focal point for world class yacht racing events, having, most notably and successfully hosted the America's Cup World Series Races in the summer of 2012." Efforts to secure the stopover are being led by Sail Newport as well as representatives from state government. Coming off the state's successful foray hosting the ACWS last summer, some in the sailing community see now as the ideal time to secure a VOR stopover. However, the council's support is by no means a guarantee ofsuccess. Newport has been passed over twice for the chance to host a VOR stop, most recently losing out to Boston during the 2008-2009 edition, and again earlier this year when teams visited Miami before heading for a home stretch across the Atlantic.


CONTINUED FROM PG.3 this jet wash is that while the vessel is in neutral, the nozzles are pointed directly under the vessel in essence thrusting downward into the Harbor bottom. I feel this would create an unacceptable disturbance to an area which has been recently dredged by the City. To minimize this impact to an acceptable level it is recommended to require the vessel, if approved, to immediately upon securing of mooring lines disengage or 'clutch out' the jets." Although a final schedule hasn't been set, Interstate expects the runs to begin toward the end of June 2013 and continue through Labor Day of each summer. In addition to using the Perrotti Park docks, the company is also asking permission to use the downstairs counter at the Harbormaster's building to sell tickets. That issue was expected to be a cause for concern for some on the council, however, Mills did concede that "as we learned with the Providence to Newport Ferry, some level of customer service is important to overall customer satisfaction." If approved, it would be the first time a fast ferry has operated from the facility since RIPTA discontinued its Providence-Newport ferry. City Councilors were due to formally endorse the proposal at their Wednesday, Nov. 14 meeting.

Storms Damage Rogers High School At the end of the Newport School Committee meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 13, Director of Property Services for Newport Schools Paul Fagan detailed a report of damages caused to Rogers High School and the Newport Area Career and Technical Center by Hurricane Sandy and the subsequent Nor’easter the following week. According to a memo from Fagan to the Supt. John Ambrogi, the following areas were damaged: -The gym roof at Rogers was called a “total loss” by Fagan, and must be replaced this fall. -The gym floor also received water penetration in three areas. -The Chartwells roof in the cafeteria and kitchen area of Rogers High School received extensive damage, which could potentially be a total loss. -In the career center, three windows on the auto-shop side of the building were blown out. According to Fagan’s memo, the

Rhode Island Interlocal Trust inspected all damages to the buildings, and made temporary repairs to the gym roof and Chartwells roof. Newport Roofing and Construction has supplied the Trust with the gym roof replacement costs, and work is expected to begin this month. To repair the three heaves that occurred on the gym floor due to heavy rain penetration, the areas were cut out and reattached by Kenvo Flooring on Wednesday, Nov. 7. Clean Care of New England began work on drying procedures on Friday, Nov. 9. School Committee member Rebecca Bolan said that Rogers High School was very lucky not to have lost power to the kitchen, because the school would have lost about $8,000 worth of food. There is no backup generator. She said that the Sullivan School lost about $400 worth of school food due to the power outage.

Volunteers Needed During Holiday Season By Meg O’Neil

By Meg O’Neil

As the holiday season approaches, several community groups in Newport are doing their part to stress the importance of giving to others in a time of need. At the Salvation Army of Newport, Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, and Seamen’s Church Institute, efforts are underway this week as volunteers prepare for what traditionally is their busiest time of the year. Not only are the nonprofits committed to feeding as many families as possible over Thanksgiving, they're also working to make sure that every family has presents for Christmas. And as demand increases, so, too, does the need for dedicated volunteers. The food pantry at the Newport Salvation Army, which is headed by Lt. Helen Johnson and her husband Kevin, is one of the most visited in Rhode Island, averaging about 900 families a month. The pantry is open to families and individuals who reside in Newport County, and it is open from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Johnson says the organization is one of few in the area that also has the pantry open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon. The Salvation Army holds a hotmeal community dinner every Friday at 5 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m. On Sunday, Nov. 18, a special Thanksgiving Dinner will be held at the Community Center, 51 Memorial Blvd. Teaming up with Shaw’s supermarkets, the Salvation Army has also placed special baskets for customers to donate non-perishable food items at Shaw’s locations around the state, including the Middletown store on East Main Road. The most needed items are gravy, cranberry sauce, and canned

Immediately after Thanksgiving, preparations for Christmas will be underway. For years, the Salvation Army has participated in the Angel Tree Program at Wal-Mart, where people can either donate gifts to an individual child, or “adopt” a whole family to help with gift-buying throughout the holiday. According to Johnson, the holidays are some of the hardest times of the year for the Salvation Army, because people tend to donate one or two presents for a Christmas toy drive, and then give nothing else during the rest of the year.

While food and presents are important to the Salvation Army, Johnson said what is needed most right now are consistent volunteers who can work at least once a month. At the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, Executive Director Marilyn Warren has been preparing to create 196 Thanksgiving baskets for local families who signed up for food assistance. “Each basket has enough food for not only a full Thanksgiving dinner, but also for the long weekend that follows,” she said.

The Newport School Committee voted on Nov. 13 to approve a $7,200 traffic study to determine whether there is sufficient parking for staff and visitors at the new Pell Elementary School on Dexter Street. The contract was awarded to Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. Last month, the committee learned that the new school’s parking lot, as currently configured for 134 cars, may be too small to accommodate staff, parents, and visitors to the school. (The new school’s staff members total 132.) School Committee Chairman Patrick K. Kelley said that a parking and traffic study had been completed a year ago, but newer numbers indicated the potential problem. “My worry is with the traffic is flow,” Kelley said. “We were very precautionary when examining pickup and drop-off, but it may become insurmountable.” He urged the committee to approve a new study. The committee voted 5-2 to conduct the first part of a three-step study, with committee members Robert Leary and Charles Shoemaker opposed. Project manager Jim Farrar said that spending the money on the initial traffic study would allow for Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. to collect and review newly acquired data to assess both the on-site parking spaces as currently designed and the potential for off-site parking to determine if there is a parking deficiency. The study would also update pick-up/ drop-off and queuing information and examine the efficiency of using the 53 on-street parking spaces that line Hillside Ave. and Dexter St. Farrar stressed the importance of doing the study immediately so that the construction project can stay on schedule. He said the Pell School is “lucky” to have the amount of parking that it does, saying, “[Farrar & Associates] builds schools that don’t have any parking at all, and somehow they’re functioning … We’re going to have to really prove that there’s an issue before we spend those dollars for additional parking and take away green space for the kids.” In terms of finding more space for parking, Farrar said the site is 2:30“pretty PM maxed Page out. 1 ”

A possible solution would be to eliminate a soccer field. However, Farrar said that doing that would be a “costly endeavor” of about $30,000 in fees. “We have drainage issues, and we’d have to meet DEM regulations for drainage system approval. I’m hoping that doesn’t go there, because you will use some of the valuable money that we’re trying to conserve.” In other business: n Rogers High School Principal James Nelson told the school committee that he was beginning the process of examining alternative schedules for the next school year to increase student-teacher contact time, as the current schedule does not allow teachers to see their students every day. Additionally, a new schedule would expand enrollment and reduce conflicts with the Newport Area Career and Technical Center. n The school committee received an update on the school’s capital improvement plans. There is currently $360,000 budgeted this fiscal year of which $220,000 will be used for roof replacements mainly for areas of Rogers High School and the technical center. The work will cover about 16,500 sq. ft. of the roof. The remaining $140,000 is allocated for locker replacement in the girls locker-room ($20,000); asphalt removal and loam installation in the school’s courtyard area ($15,000); kitchen equipment replacement ($15,000); fire/ sprinkler updates ($50,000); new carpentry van ($40,000). n  To address chronic tardiness of several Newport teachers, the school department has instituted sign-in sheets requiring staff to note what time they arrive in the morning. Ambrogi said that of the 8 staff members who were tardy last year, only 4 remain, and principals will discipline those individuals. According to Ambrogi, Rhode Island teachers were absent an average of 9 days last year; in Newport, it was 7.8 days. This year, as of Nov. 2, the teacher absence rate was 2.9. n The Newport School Committee will meet again on Thursday, Nov. 15 to accept nominations and unofficially vote for the Chair and Vice-Chair leadership positions. Visit Newport Now’s education blog on Friday, Nov. 16 for results of that meeting.

WINERY CONTINUED FROM PG. 1 In 1998, through a partnership of the Aquidneck Land Trust and the State of Rhode Island Division of Agriculture, the Nunes family was able to acquire the neighboring, and historic, Perry Farm, which has an interesting history of its own. In 1860, the Bryer family bought the land from the Hazard family for $18,000. They turned it into the Middletown Trotting Park, a halfmile horseracing track, and added a public dance hall in 1870. It was also the original site of the Narragansett Gun Club until the practice of shooting live pigeons, provided by Mr. Bryer, was deemed unacceptable, and the land was converted into a golf course until 1900. After the mansion on this property collapsed, the land was sold to a German man, Aurel Batonye, in 1910. But, the US Government seized it as alien property during World War I and sold it to Ervin Gomprey, who rented it to the Perry family and later sold them the farm outright in the 1930s. The Perrys grew potatoes here until 1998. When the Nunes bought the farm to add to their vineyard, they were able to increase their growing area as well as protect the land from a plan to develop 80 house lots. That same year, Newport Vineyards received their first gold medal during the Eastern International Wine Competition for their white blend “Great White.” The following year, their Vidal Ice Wine was voted into the top 50 wines in the United States at the Jefferson Invitational. To kick off the millennium, they received the Ingenuity Award from the Rhode Island Historical Society for their vineyard practices and

In 2008, their Riesling won “Best In Show” at Jefferson Cup Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition, and in 2010 their white blend, Tranquility, won a gold medal for Best Vinifera Blend at the Atlantic Wine Competition. Tranquility is a blend of Gewurztraminer, Muscat Ottonel, Pinot Gris, and Riesling grapes. This snowball effect of awards and accolades created a steady increase in business, and a need for expansion. “The winery expansion is certainly exciting and will help us keep up with the demand for our wines,” said winemaker George Chelf. Their plan is to renovate the area where The Glass Onion restaurant was, relocating the tanks and press pad indoors for wine production. An area near the large stone chimney will allow visitors to look down and observe the wine being made in the production room. A

large window wall in this room will overlook the vineyard. The plans also include a facelift for the store. Nunes said renovations will make the vineyard visible upon entrance, and a new tasting area will be built where the tanks are now. Fans of Fatulli’s Bakery & Deli need not worry. That business will remain right where it is, with an added sitting area for patrons having lunch to look out over the vineyards. “We always want to keep it intimate, focus on the wine, and let people enjoy themselves,” said Nunes, “This will be a nice chance to show all our visitors how we grow grapes and how we make wine, improve our products, and create a few more jobs.” Newport Vineyards offers two tours at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. every day except Christmas and Thanksgiving.

SEWER CONTINUED FROM PG. 1 City officials say that the volumes of discharges from the Wellington Avenue and Washington Street CSO facilities will be significantly reduced through actions such as the disconnection of downspouts, and other inflow sources; conveyance and treatment improvements, including two new pump stations and wet weather capacity improvements at the city's Wastewater Pollution Control Plant; and upsizing at least one of the city's primary force mains. Months of work and analysis by city engineers CH2M Hill and the ad-hoc working group, led up to this point. And on Wednesday,

councilors were due to formally endorse the plan, known to those who have been working on the project for the last two years, as the Conveyance 1A scenario. According to Julia Forgue, the city's director of utilities, countless hours of work have been put into the plan, including 12 public meetings held by the CSO Stakeholder Workgroup between February 2011 and October 2012. The effort culminated during a special workshop with councilors last week. There, several remediation options were presented, with costs ranging from $31 million, up to $201 million.

In the end a middle-of-the-road option was settled on, the costs of which are expected to be spread out over 30 years, with an annual cost equivalent of roughly $3.5 million. As Forgue noted in a report to the council, "The C1A Scenario best achieves the goals of the CSO Program, the EPA, and those expressed by the Stakeholders." The $100 million capital project is in addition the city's $70 million upgrade to its drinking water plants. Those improvements are also required by federal mandate.

Nov. 17th

Vegetables always seem to be the biggest problem in planning a menu for Thanksgiving Day dinner. Someone in the family is bound to turn up their nose at broccoli or Brussels sprouts. Green beans and peas have had their day as well . . . boring! A great new alternative is a Thanksgiving salad. A salad can be colorful, and definitely not the grayish-green color of overcooked vegetables. Multi-tasking is necessary when preparing Thanksgiving dinner, but vegetables usually get little attention. Common choices are creamed onions, Brussels sprouts, yams with marshmallows – all prepared with lots of butter. However, with more than a week’s time to prepare for the great turkey meal, you have an opportunity to try one of these fabulous salads. Beets, parsnips, turnips, carrots, fennel, and celery root are just a few of the root and bulb vegetables you might consider tossing with your lettuce greens. For texture in your salad, frisee lettuce is very prickly-looking but beautiful, as is the addition of bright red radicchio. Fortunately, your choice of root vegetables at this time of year is wide. Both fennel and celery root can be Celery root exotic-tasting when you combine them with fresh orange slices, walnuts, or pistachios, and drizzle with a champagne vinaigrette. Wild rice also makes for a very delectable Thanksgiving salad. Try this salad as an alternative to the usual stuffing.

Wild Rice and Dried Cherry Salad Serves 8

Ingredients: 1 cup wild rice 9 cups chicken stock 8 slices of crispy bacon, chopped Half bulb of celery root, peeled and finely chopped 2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped 1 medium-sized red onion, skinned and finely chopped 3/4 cup parsley, finely chopped 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 cup dried cherries Salt and pepper to taste Rinse the rice in a narrow-gauge sieve to rinse out any impurities. Pour the chicken stock into a large pot and bring it to a boil. Add the rice (wild rice is really a grain) to the large saucepan or pot. After two to three minutes at full boil, turn the heat down to medium and stir. Place the lid to partially cover the pot or pan. You do not want to place

the cover on firmly, as the rice will not cook properly. Cook the wild rice this way for one hour. The grains will have swollen and exploded. As with any rice, it is best to taste test. You definitely do not want your rice to be soggy. Due to the tough husk on the grain of wild rice, it should have a crunch. Remove the rice from the heat and pour it into a colander. Let it rest for a half hour. After the rice has cooled, place it in a large bowl and fluff with a fork. In a frying pan on medium heat, fry the bacon until it is crispy. Pat dry on paper towels and crumble it. Add the bacon to the bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Toss lightly but thoroughly, so the balsamic vinegar is evenly distributed with the grains of rice. Let the salad sit for a half hour to an hour and serve at room temperature. It is possible to make this salad in advance (no more than two days) and keep in the refrigerator tightly covered with plastic wrap. Let the salad come to room temperature before serving. Place the salad in a serving bowl and surprise your family with a Thanksgiving salad.

Another alternative to a Thanksgiving staple, the sweet potato, is golden beets. They are a deluxe root vegetable available in supermarkets at this time of year. This beet recipe is a taste-bud delight. Not only are golden beets an elegant looking vegetable, they have a milder taste than their very red cousins.

Roasted Golden Beet Salad Serves 6

Ingredients: 8 to 10 golden beets, scrubbed, both ends removed 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice 1 teaspoon honey 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 large shallot, finely chopped 2 tablespoons wine vinegar 6 cups Bibb lettuce, torn into pieces ½ cup sliced almonds, sautéed 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and spray with cooking oil. Place the beets on the lined tray and cover with foil. Bake for 50 minutes or until you can easily pierce them with a fork. Prepare the Honey Wine Vinegar Sauce as follows: Pour the orange juice into a small saucepan and add the honey and wine vinegar. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce is reduced to the consistency of syrup. Remove the sauce from the heat and let it cool to room temperature. Peel and slice the golden beets. Place them over a handful of lettuce on individual salad plates, garnish with the toasted sliced almonds and a sprinkling of goat cheese. Drizzle the scrumptious sauce over the beets. Voila! A fabulous golden-colored vegetable for Thanksgiving that is as delicious as it looks.

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in “Skyfall”.

Not Your Father’s Bond Movie By Patricia Lacouture Instead of the slick, glossy images that have opened many Bond films, “Skyfall” presents a blurred figure that moves forward into full focus. How ironic: This gray shadow starts a truly intelligent Bond film. James Bond, the shadow figure, has become a mature man with weaknesses and strengths in equal measure. Very early in the action, he dies. Hence, we know Bond will be back. Indeed, Bond is back. The 23rd film in the James Bond series, “Skyfall,” as directed by Sam Mendes (“Revolutionary Road,” 2008; “Road to Perdition,” 2002; and “American Beauty,” 1999),stands tall among those films and, in many ways, takes the Bond series to a place of honor. The aging Bond drinks too much and often looks tired. Yet, when duty calls, he responds with patriotic zeal and vigor. Daniel Craig’s Bond takes a bullet to his shoulder and seems to fall off the edge of the earth, yet his stunts, once he’s back from a brief sabbatical on a tropical isle, make younger men look frail. With one exception, gone is the bevy of scantily clad vixens. The most overtly sexual “Bond woman” appeared in “Dr. No,” the film that put Bond on the cinematic map. Ursula Andress, as Honey Rider, was a tamed Amazon, a creature in heat in a ragged-edged bikini. There were plenty of others: Pussy Galore, Plenty O’Toole, Holly Goodhead, to name just a few. In this film, Miss Moneypenny returns as Eve (Naomi Harris), and her aptly named character, while quite sexy, is a brave woman with brains who (hopefully) marks an evolution toward women who aren’t simply part of Bond’s toy box. In fact, this film has moments that are playfully erotic rather than jokingly sexual.

Patricia Lacouture teaches film studies at Salve Regina University . She completed her graduate studies in film at Boston University.

This Bond has nail-biting action sequences and amazing stunts, but it also has a central core of integrity. M, played by the fabulous Judi Dench for the seventh and final time, has become a character of dramatic heft. She commands respect, and she never hesitates to make tough calls. She quotes from Tennyson’s “Ulysses” –“heroic hearts made weak by time and fate but strong in will to strive, to seek, to fight and not to yield.” That quote distills what’s best about this new Bond. He will never accept defeat or obsolescence. This brings us to another major theme in “Skyfall”: technology versus human ingenuity. Q (Ben Whishaw) looks like a kid who knows a lot about technology but not much about old-fashioned common sense. The film pits the “old ways” against high-tech gadgetry. In fact, the M16 headquarters’ computer system gets hacked, reminding us that artificial intelligence doesn’t work without electrical power or a human to turn it on. Javier Bardem plays the villain, Silva, an emotionally damaged ex-M16 operative with bleached blond hair and ambivalent sexual orientation. Bardem is one bad dude, a man with a grudge who is a computer genius more clever than the cocky Q. Bond may first grace this screen as a shadow, yet he knows fear and faces it and is sexy as all get out. “James Bond will return,” we learn in the closing credits. I’d say it’s more that he has finally arrived.

Of all of Aquidneck Island’s wildlife species, the most misunderstood is the coyote. These intelligent creatures can adapt to any urban, rural, or suburban environment, presenting a complex problem for local residents, county law enforcement departments, state wildlife managers, and government officials. In 2005, the Narragansett Bay Coyote Study was initiated to address the rising number of coyotes in the county and an increase in their displays of bold behavior. Un-

“Humans who leave food … either purposely or inadvertently, create dangerous public safety issues for themselves, their children, their pets, their neighbors, and the coyotes.” – Numi Mitchell der the direction of lead scientist Numi Mitchell, a team of biologists, volunteers, educators, students, and scientists gathered biological and behavioral information on coyotes. Through the use of Global Positioning System tracking collars, researchers obtained data on pack territories, pack sizes, and how humans were directly or indirectly providing food to coyotes. By feeding coyotes, humans contribute to the increase in their numbers. Simply put, the more food the female coyotes eat, the more fertile they become, leading to larger pup litters and, in turn, more coyotes. The availability of more food also leads to smaller pack territories, which allows for more packs to inhabit the region. But the tracking collars only had a short reception range. If the collared coyote went out of range, the researchers would have to wait for the collar to drop off to retrieve its data. In January 2010, the researchers proposed a plan for dealing with the coyote population titled, “Coyote Best Management Practices.” This plan addressed the fact that humans continuing to feed the coyote population would lead to multiple problems. According to Mitchell, “Humans who leave food, food waste, and other edible substances out for the coyotes, either purposely or inad-

Gluten free products are sold at specialty markets as well as in supermarkets.

What it Means to be Gluten-Free By Jonathan Clancy Some people who choose a gluten-free diet claim that they experience higher energy levels throughout the day. Others say that it helps to alleviate intestinal and digestive problems. Although sufficient statistical evidence is lacking to support such claims, many people believe that a gluten-free diet can help with the treatment of autism, schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis, attention deficit disorder, migraine, and fertility problems. Gluten is a gooey protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten can also be found in many products where one wouldn’t expect to find it, such as in prescription and over-the-counter medications. Pieces of chewing gum are sometimes dusted with flour to prevent sticking. Cosmetics such as lipstick and lip balm can contain gluten. Gluten can be used as a stabilizer and thickener in ice cream and ketchup. Legally, gluten that is used in food processing does not have to be labeled as an ingredient. For example, some companies will dust conveyor belts with crushed grain to prevent sticking. Gluten can even be used in glue on envelopes. While many of these exposures don’t pose a threat for someone just trying to stay healthy, they can create a serious problem for someone with celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes damage to the small intestine, where tiny hair-like villi are responsible for absorbing nutrients into the bloodstream. When people afflicted with celiac disease ingest gluten, their villi are

destroyed, and their body does not receive vital nutrition. Common symptoms of celiac disease are recurring abdominal bloating or pain, chronic diarrhea, gas, bone and joint pain, unexplained anemia (low red blood cell count), behavior changes, pale sores inside the mouth, a painful skin rash known as dermatitis herpetiformis, missed menstrual periods for women, muscle cramps, fatigue, delayed growth, even seizures and respiratory problems in severe cases. Because the list of symptoms is so long and many of them could come from other sources, celiac disease can be tricky to diagnose. Blood samples are taken to test the level of antibodies, which are produced by the immune system in response to substances that the body views as threatening. People with celiac disease have a higher level of antibodies in their blood than those who don’t. The most accurate way to test for CD is a biopsy of the small intestine, where a small piece of tissue is tested for potential damage. Gluten’s prevalence in food and food products means that it is difficult to completely eradicate the protein from one’s diet, but it’s not impossible to do. Gluten is contained in flour, pasta, bread, cereal, crackers, and baked goods for starters. But it can also be found in soy sauce, flavorings, and emulsifiers. People with celiac disease also need to avoid ingredients like modified food starch, maltodextrine, and dextrine, unless they are labeled as corn malt.

MHS Girls’ Soccer Team Finally Takes Division-III Crown Champions at last! The Middletown High School girls’ soccer team swept through the state Division III soccer playoffs last week, scoring 13 goals and yielding none in games versus Rogers, Chariho and finally Tolman high schools to gain the championship that had eluded them for two consecutive years. After senior Chelsea Dowler scored her 100th career goal against Chariho High School in a 5-0 win in the semi-finals on Friday, Nov. 9 (Dowler had 4 goals that night), she added the first goal against Tolman in the final on Monday, Nov. 12 (she would add another) and that was all the Islanders would need in the 5-0 romp to the crown. Kenleigh Hebel, Riley Turcotte and Isabella Maguire would also find the net in the final game of the season. Middletown’s junior goalkeeper Kaitlyn Griffith turned away five Tolman shots, posting her third straight shutout and, with it, her team’s long-awaited championship.

COYOTES CONTINUED FROM PG. 18 ing to solve complex problems through the use of the wireless network. It’s exciting to see innovative use of mobile technology to solve issues not only between humans, but between animals and humans.” Recently, Mitchell, along with a team of volunteers, trapped, sedated, collared, and released a male coyote in the Middletown area, using the first of the new wireless collars to be deployed in the wild. Mitchell was elated by the data that began to come in, “This will allow us to get live-time data on the location of the animal,” she said. “As the program progresses, we will be able to identify problems in a short amount of time. We will also be able to identify those packs which are natural and beneficial to the overall health of the local environment. This will benefit enforcement agencies in the identification of food sources, both intentional and unintentional.” Ruggiero praised the pilot program: “I commend the work that

Numi Mitchell has done, specifically in Middletown, but for all of Aquidneck Island and Jamestown. We greatly appreciate the funding from AT&T for the collars. It has the potential of being a template for the rest of the state and possibly the nation.” DiPalma added, “This collar technology is the first of its kind in the nation. The end result is that people and coyotes can safely and peacefully co-exist. Science can generate facts and data which will be used to make objective decisions towards long-term solutions which will benefit all concerned.” For more information and updates on the coyote study visit Jack Kelly, a native Newporter, is a wildlife photographer and nature enthusiast who enjoys sharing his experiences with others.

Save the Bay’s seasonal schedule of seal-watching tours around Rose Island will begin on Saturday, Nov. 24. The tours will continue on weekends and during school vacations through Apr. 21, 2013. Twohour tours will also include a visit to Rose Island and a tour of the lighthouse. The seal tours are scheduled at times of low tide, as this is when seals “haul out” onto the rocks and beaches of Narragansett Bay. Migratory harbor seals and gray seals have returned to Narragansett Bay in the past few weeks. During the winter, it is not uncommon to also observe harp and hooded seals in the bay. Save the Bay’s tour boat, M/V Alletta Morris, departs from 142 Long Wharf Dock, at the intersection of Long Wharf and Washington St. Parking is included in the tour pricing. Save the Bay provides binoculars and expert guides to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable experience while viewing these intriguing marine creatures in their natural habitat.

Exploration Center Will Rebuild

Save the Bay’s Exploration Center and Aquarium at Easton’s Beach was a victim of Hurricane Sandy’s destructive tidal surge. According to its director Adam Kovarsky, “The aquarium is a total loss. While we managed to save all of the animals and specimens, we lost our entire infrastructure. We will rebuild the aquarium, but it will take some time.” Rose Amoroso, Save the Bay’s director of communications, said the aquarium will reopen, but the time-table is uncertain: “We are deeply committed to maintaining an aquarium in Newport. We are working with the city of Newport to discover the full extent of damage. We don’t know exactly when or where we will re-open, but our commitment to Newport is definite. We want to thank everyone for their concern and caring. We appreciate it very much.” To make a donation to aid aquarium recovery efforts, please visit or call 401-272-3540.

Federal officials are asking the public to adhere to the closure of Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge in Middletown. The refuge is closed until further notice due to unsafe and hazardous conditions resulting from damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. “The high surf created unstable banks, severe drop offs right next to the trail, washed out trails, and over-steepened shoreline access points,” said Refuge Manager Charlie Vandemoer. “Law enforcement officials will patrol the refuge, and anyone found on the refuge may be ticketed.
