A WORD FROM LARRY
Let’s talk candy
Who doesn’t like candy? Well right here in Hampton we have two of the finest candy shops on the coast, plus a new one in Kittery Maine. In 1904, Jesse Hutchinson started making candy Larry Marsolais in Salem, Massachusetts, at the tender age of 14. In 1921, Jesse opened the first Ye Kandy Shoppe on Washington Street in Boston. His legacy continues at Hutchinson’s Candy Outlet at 893 Lafayette Road in Hampton, with old-fashioned gourmet candies, caramel corn and brittles. The key to all of there products is the original recipes and all-natural ingredients, all cooked to perfection in a copper kettle. First started in the basement of the Sanborn family home in Plaistow, N.H., in 1957, in 1970, Sanborn’s Casino Candies opened as a seasonal business on the boardwalk of the Casino building at Hampton Beach. In 1983 Sanborn’s Fine

Located inside Warren’s Lobster House, it has over 150 different kinds of nostalgic candy, decadent chocolates and all of your other favorites to choose from.

Miss Hampton Beach Pageant returns By Vinny Manfrate
The Hampton Beach Beauty Pageant will be returning to the Sea Shell Stage with the Junior/Little Miss Hampton Beauty Pageant taking place on Saturday, July 30, and the Miss Hampton Beauty Pageant taking place the day after on Sunday, July 31. Both pageants will begin at 2 p.m. and are free to watch. Stephanie Lussier, director of the pageant, expects a packed audience for the 70th anniversary of the event. The Junior/Little Miss Hampton Beach Pageant features girls competing in the Little (ages 5 to 9) and Junior (ages 10 to 15) categories and, according to Lussier, will feature 29 young ladies competing for the crown and other prizes. The Miss Hampton Beach Pageant will feature 10 young women ages 16 to 24 also competing for the crown and the responsibility to become a representative of Hampton Beach as Miss Hampton Beach. Each contestant will have an interview with the judges the morning of the show and then the show will begin with an

opening number at 2 p.m. What follows will be a swimsuit and evening gown competition and the top five contestants will be answering questions on stage.
“The questions on stage are important because that is what we will need Miss Hampton Beach to do all year — talking to people and promoting the beach,”
Lussier said. The top five will receive prizes such as cash, trophies and flowers. The winner will be crowned Miss Hampton Beach and will receive $500. According to Lussier, the Hampton Historical Society and the Tuck Museum will donate a portrait to the winner. Former Miss Hampton Beach winners will be in attendance to emcee the event, and the reigning Miss Hampton Beach will pass along her title. While the prizes are great, Lussier believes that just competing in the pageant has competitors taking home much more valuable lessons. “I think that, for not only the winner but for the competitors, it’s a great experience to take with you,” she said. “It helps them practice interview skills and teaches the interview process as well as being on stage and speaking on a microphone in front of a large audience. You know, you can use that later on in life. The winner will also experience a year of doing promotions, promoting beach activities, the title and acting as a spokesperson.”

Why itâ€™s hip to be square, plus other unique slices
IN APPRECIATION OF YOUR SERVICE... Tripoli serves up beach pizza. Photo by Vinny Manfrate.
By Vinny Manfrate
If you think “beach pizza” means any old pizza you can get when you’re at the beach, then you haven’t heard of beach pizza. It’s not your standard slice — it’s square, for one thing, its sauce is subtly sweet and it’s made with far less cheese than today’s typical pizza. On the Seacoast, both Tripoli Bakery and Pizza in Seabrook and Salisbury and Cristy’s Pizza in Salisbury and Hampton specialize in beach pizza (though Matthew Zappala, owner of Tripoli Pizza, is quick to point out that “the customer refers to the pizza as beach pizza, but to us it has always been known as Tripoli’s Pizza”). Zappala said that whatever you call it, consistency, taste and quality are the most important ingredients when making pizza. “Customers get consistent quality and a fresh-baked product that they have been buying from us since 1946. I guess that’s the bulk of it,” Zappala said. Over at Cristy’s Pizza, Manager Jose Basulto agreed. “First of all, the fresh taste is what sets it apart,” Basulto said. “The convenient speed of getting the pizza — it’s super express, super tasty and super affordable. Fast and tasty overall.”
Although a round whole pizza or triangular slice is what people tend to think of when they order a “traditional” pizza, beach pizza’s square shape is actually more old-fashioned and traditional. According to Basulto, the style is older than round pizza and was the first style of pizza to make its way to the United States from Italy. Despite being known as beach pizza, Tripoli Pizza began in Lawrence, JOSE BASULTO Mass., in 1924, adapting the classic Sicilian style bakery pizza. With customers spending many hot summer days out on the beach rather than in the city, the Zappala family
The fresh taste is what sets it apart. ... It’s super express, super tast and super affordable.
Rivalry rumors According to both Zappala and Jose, the beach pizza rivalry between Cristy’s and Tripoli’s is nothing more than friendly competition with each business doing its best to please its loyal customers. With close to 60 years making and selling the classical-style pizza, the businesses focus on making their best pizza for whoever comes up to their stands. “We do our own things,” Zappala said. “We concentrate on our customers and our product. It’s healthy competition. Our goal is to be sure that the Tripoli product is what it always has been and will stay what it remains for our loyal Tripoli’s customer.”

decided to take the business to the Seacoast in 1945. According to Zappala, a fourth-family-generation business owner, the experiment paid off for the family in the long run. “It probably wasn’t the most popular idea in 1945 but through the years it became a destination and we are glad to serve all of our loyal customers,” Zappala said. “The same family still owns and works it.”

Many would believe that beach pizza has a secret to its unique taste. But according to both Basulto and Zappala, the secret is simply hard work, quality ingredients and a simple concept. Basulto said it’s important to start with a quality base product and then focus on techniques such as the thickness of the pan and the time you take to rise the

dough. “It’s zesty, it’s sweet,” Basulto said. “But our pizza is simple, believe it or not. It isn’t really a secret. We start with a good product and we make it simple. It’s good in a similar way that water is — it’s consistent.” Zappala said that at this point, years of hard work have perfected the wellknown taste of Tripoli’s pizza. “It’s been family-owned and -worked since the beginning,” he said. “That’s why it’s so consistent and remains the same. We’ve had longtime employees and longtime loyal customers.” Still, there are some technicalities that make the pizza good for business, compared to places that prepare typical circular pizza. “You also have more surface space for baking when the pizza is square,” Basulto said. “You can put two trays of pizza in there and use the whole surface of the oven. With the round pizza, you have blank space in there.” Basulto said this makes it possible to quickly put out a quality product. “You only get so many minutes in an hour and so many hours in a day to do business,” Basulto said. “You want to bake as much as you can within that hour and the square pizza fits the oven better for turnover.”

If you venture a bit away from the coast and into towns like Hampton, you’ll find pizza restaurants that offer a more unique, diverse take on the popular food. Establishments such as The Flatbread Company and the Community Oven take pizza to another level, providing a local flair, a sit-down experience and a variety of community events for

you to attend while you enjoy a slice with family and friends. Evan Fetras of the Flatbread Company described how a restaurant on the Seacoast reflects the community surrounding it. “Honestly, I just moved here a few months ago,” Fetras said. “I’m already taken aback by the sense of community here. It’s a small community, very neighborly and tight-knit. It’s a beach community so we get a lot of tourists. They’ve been very helpful, welcoming and accepting of my family during our short time here.” The Flatbread Co. serves a unique style

of pizza and can be found in a variety of locations on the Seacoast and abroad. Hampton, N.H., Portsmouth, N.H., and Amesbury, Mass., all have a Flatbread Co., and there are more throughout New England. Fetras explained that the restaurant isn’t quite traditional when it comes to how to serve and prepare its flatbreads and pizzas. “Flatbread isn’t only the name of the restaurant, it's the style that we serve,” he said. “It's more of an artisan-style pizza. It’s hand tossed and all the ingredients are made from scratch.” Fetras said the Flatbread Co. places a high priority on using locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible. The flatbreads are cooked in an old-fashioned clay oven. Everything is wood-fired; no gas or electric cooking is used. “The pizza is truly cooked in a oldworld, artisan style.” he said. Unique pizzas that can be found at the Hampton Flatbread Co. specifically include a homemade sausage pizza made with nitrate-free maple fennel sausage; Mopsy’s Kalua Pork Pie made with smoked free-range pork shoulder and homemade original organic barbecue sauce; and the Hampton Community Flatbread with wood-fired cauldron tomato sauce, organic caramelized onions, organic mushrooms, premium whole milk mozzarella and more. There many other options for flatbread as well. Fetras’ personal favorite is the Punctuated Equilibrium. “It has the perfect balance of flavors,” he said. “It’s a nice vegetarian option with tomatoes and olives to add some saltiness. It has Vermont goat cheese that adds a layer of creaminess and decadence

with roasted red peppers, rosemary and red onions.” Another unique pizza from the Flatbread Co. was a reuben-styled pizza made with ingredients such as sauerkraut that, according to Fetras, most people wouldn’t necessarily think would work on a pizza. Fetras enjoys seeing people’s skepticism change once they try it out for themselves. “You don’t think of sauerkraut on a pizza,” Fetras said, “and when you describe it to customers, they give you an odd look. Then they try and if I had a dollar for every time they say it’s the best pizza that they’ve ever had....
That’s what we do, we try things out and see what works. Sometimes it's off-thewall toppings that we have and make a pizza special out of it by the end of the day.” The Flatbread Co. also features two weekly specials, a meat and a vegetarian option, that rotate every week. “We challenge ourselves to create these wonderful flatbreads,” Fetras said. “We have fun sticking toppings together and makSTEPHANIE GARDINER ing the best pizza that we can.

The Community Oven gives back to the community.” The Community Oven gives back through events such as Community Mondays. On these nights, from 6 to 8 p.m., the Community Oven hosts a local organization for family fun and food prepared by the Community Oven.

pepperoni pizzas along with more unique flavors such as buffalo chicken, Greek feta spinach, grilled steak and fresh baby spinach, a simple veggie, balsamic veggie, pulled pork, taco and the option to create your own pizza. There are also many options besides pizza on the menu such as salads, calzones, appetizers and more. “Our most unique pizza would probably be the Big Oven,” Gardiner said. “It’s our interpretation of a Big Mac hamburger from McDonald's. It features seasoned Angus ground beef, Roma tomato, red onion, bacon, signature all natural cheese, finished with shredded lettuce, pickles and Thousand Island dressing.” The restaurant also features two rotating pizza specials every week. There is usually the option for either a EVAN FETRAS veggie special or a meat special. According to Gardiner and Fetras, it’s worth coming in to Hampton or any of the Seacoast towns for the day to explore what they have to offer, especially for pizza. “There’s a lot of interesting places off of the beach here,” Fetras said. “Hampton is so much more than just a beach, there’s a lot of natural beauty here. I’m slowly doing a little bit more exploring myself and I think tourists should do the same. We encourage people to come out and give us a try and we’re only a short drive from the beach.”

What’s the best way to clean those headlights? Dear Car Talk: Please settle yet another marital dispute. When cleaning the windshield at the filling station, one of us always likes to give the headlamps a scrubbing; the By Ray Magliozzi other thinks that doing so puts tiny scratches on the plastic lens, and over the years this will lead to light scattering and reduced visibility. Is it OK to routinely clean the lenses in this manner, or should they be cleaned only under running water, with the scrubbing saved for emergencies? — Ronald I’m having trouble figuring out which position each of you is taking. I’m guessing you’re the headlight scrubber, Ronald. But I know if I showed an interest in cleaning anything, my wife would be thrilled. Anyway, now most headlight covers are made of polycarbonate plastic and are covered with a clear-coat sealant of some kind. And over time, that sealer wears off, and the plastic gets yellowed and dulled. The biggest culprit is ultraviolet light from the sun, but road grit and the heat from the headlamps play a role, too. Overly rough scrubbing of the plastic
or using an abrasive cleanser certainly can scratch them up, too. But mostly, these lenses die of natural causes: sun and heat. When the lenses get cloudy and yellow, your best bet is to take the car to a shop, where they’ll use professional tools and special chemicals to buff out the yellowed plastic and, in some cases, seal it again. It won’t last as long as the original coating on the lens, but it’ll at least help for a while. There are do-it-yourself products, but those are even shorter-lasting, in our experience. And in the meantime, you’re free to clean the lenses to your heart’s content. But I never would suggest scrubbing them; I’d clean them with a squeegee, like the one you use for your windshield at the gas station. Wipe them with the wet sponge (with 50,000 windshields’ worth of dirt, since the gas station hasn’t changed that water since the Carter administration), and then gently clear them off with the rubber blade on the other side. Or wipe them with a clean, soft cloth. Or get your own squeegee and use mild soap and water — and avoid the prehistoric mud and potentially abrasive grit in the water at the gas station. And if this interest in cleaning things persists, Ronald, your wife wrote to me and asked me to suggest some dishes.
Dear Car Talk: Two years ago, we bought a low-mileage, 2010 PT Cruiser for our middle-aged daughter. The previous owner was the original, 50-something female owner, who took meticulous care of the car and had all her mechanical papers to prove it. It ran like a top. But in less than two years, we have paid to replace the water pump, fuel pump, radiator, starter and battery. And now it’s sitting idle in our daughter’s driveway with a “blown head gasket.” We’ve come to find out that her daughter, our teenage granddaughter, had some of her high-school friends “soup it up,” and that she will use only premium gas in it, despite the fact that it requires regular gas. When this one “blew the head gasket,” a family friend bought our granddaughter a slightly older, but nice, BMW. Again, she had her friends soup it up, and she uses only premium gas in it. It now sits beside the PT cruiser, idle, with a “blown head gasket.” My question: Can using premium gas in a car that requires regular gas cause a blown head gasket? Is it possible that her friends, in souping up these cars, caused damage that resulted in a blown head gasket? — Maureen Well, first of all, I have several buddies in the head-gasket-replacement business who are dying for this kid to move to their town.
It sounds like she’s great for business. Premium gas had nothing to do with croaking these cars, Maureen. More likely, these kids are driving the blazes out of them and frying the engines. I don’t know what kind of “souping up” they did -- maybe they changed the valve timing or added a free-flow exhaust system or something. But the very fact that they’re “souping them up” tells me that they’re eager to drive the cars fast and hard. And that’s the problem. Is it possible to drive a car so hard that it overheats and blows a head gasket? It absolutely is. And circumstantial evidence strongly suggests that that’s what your granddaughter and her friends did -- twice. It doesn’t make her an awful person, Maureen. Lots of kids do stupid things. My brother was in the Stupidity Hall of Fame as a teenager (first ballot) -- and that was before he ran our father’s Chevy out of oil. But your granddaughter clearly does not understand the relationship between driving a car hard and having that car stop running. Or the relationship between all that and money. So while it’s awfully nice of you and your friends to keep buying her cars, I’d stop doing that, and make your next vehicle donation to her a Schwinn. Visit Cartalk.com.

CHELSEA MILLER OWNER OF GARLAND STABLES IN RYE
Sports Bar & Casual Dining
By Rob Levey
Talk a little about the history of Garland Stables. What is it like to now run the business in your grandmother’s shoes? My grandmother, Marjorie Miller, had a dream of creating a large-scale facility for the purpose of training, showing, breeding and selling quality Morgan show horses. In 1996, she made that dream come true. I remember it being built and when it was in the first stages of becoming a barn, and it was just a frame of the building it is now. I have so many memories at that barn. I specifically remember talking about my own dream to my grandmother that I would like to be a horse trainer someday with a lesson program and training program and how someday I would have clients wearing jackets with my barn name and logo. Fourteen years later, I started living that dream. I’m blessed that my grandmother had enough trust and faith in me to continue running the barn. It’s an immense amount of work and truly what I would call a labor of love, but I am so fortunate to say that I am doing what I said I wanted to do when I was a child. It is still so exciting when I see my clients are proudly wearing the jacket with ‘Garland Stables’ on it.

Do many tourists come to you in the summer months for lessons, or do you primarily work with year-round locals? It’s a little different each summer.

Is what you do more challenging in the winter when there is a ton of snow? Each season has its pros and cons, but yes, winter is the most challenging. Snow plowing, snow-blowing and shoveling to keep the parking area clear for clients and our hay, grain [and] shaving suppliers as well as keeping the paddocks accessible to put the horses outside takes up a lot of time. Just working in the cold temperatures, regardless of what you’re doing, is hard work. It tends to be more expensive with the extra use of lights and heat as well, which I’m sure most people experience.

SEACOAST SCENE | JULY 28 - AUGUST 3, 2016 | PAGE 26
biggest challenges was when I had just graduated college and had to become ‘the boss.’ It was difficult for me to learn how to put my foot down on how things were to be run, or how to say no when it came to clients or parents who were usually twice my age. I was 21 when I took the barn over. Now that I am six years into it, I’m proud of the how my business has grown and how I’m making a name for myself around the Seacoast area as an instructor and horse trainer. My business goals would be to continue introducing horses and horseback riding to the community and growing my training and lesson program. How many instructors work for you? I have one other instructor besides myself. In running the business on your own since 2010, have there been any surprises for you or things you had not expected? There have definitely been things that I had not expected. When I graduated college, I had a fairly good idea of what I was getting into and I knew it would be a lot of work, but there is only so much you can learn in a classroom. The amount and cost of maintenance of the barn and grounds
long-term as well as daily is much more than I had anticipated starting out.
For people that do not know much about horses, what would you say to help educate them? Is there something about horses that might intrigue them? I think horses are naturally intriguing to people, so that in itself is something that draws people in to come see them. People are always so amazed when they come by the barn and get to meet the horses and I explain to them how each horse has their own unique personality, much like dogs.
In looking to the future, where do you see Garland Stables? I love how things are running right now. There is a great atmosphere at the barn and a spectacular group of people and horses that help make it enjoyable. Looking toward the future, I would like to continue being well known around the Seacoast as a place to go for riding lessons and horse training and boarding and see those programs grow. There are also plenty of things I would like to fix, upgrade and add to the facility to keep it safe, updated, and able to take on more growth for my horse training services.

CAROL CORONIS WITH ZABEL
Beach wrestling has been resurrected at Hampton Beach, and on Sunday, July 31, you can cheer on a new generation of competitors. Seabrook Middle School Wrestling Coach Betsey Ross (who is also the Seabrook Rec Junk Yard Dogs Wrestling coach and the Winnacunnet High School Wrestling Boosters secretary) said beach wrestling was held years ago at Hampton. “Then there was a lag, and now the WHS varsity wrestling coach, Eric Larcomb, is bringing it back,” said Ross. According to Ross, a lot of New Hampshire wrestling fans and wrestlers asked if a tournament could be brought back to Hampton Beach. “Coach Larcomb held one of his practices on the beach this past November, as a fun change of pace ... and even in November the WHS team drew a small audience,” Ross said. “So that kind of planted the idea of bringing back the beach wrestling.” A group of WHS wrestling fans, led by Pam Larson, went into action and planned this year’s event. The organization also garnered requests to add a Senior Division for 45-year-olds and up. “We didn’t think we would have participants ... but after receiving all the emails, we added the senior division,” Ross said. According to Ross, the sport of wrestling is growing in New Hampshire. “Daniel Webster College recently instituted a wrestling team, Plymouth State has a wrestling team, UNH has a wrestling team,” said Ross. “Female wrestling teams are currently the ‘in thing’ and becoming popular at a lot of colleges too.” Hampton Beach Wrestling Tournament

According to Ross, beach wrestling is easier and its rules less complicated than regular wrestling. In formal mat wrestling, wrestlers compete for three periods, where each period is two minutes. There are established weight classes, and the object is to control your opponent to score points or get a pin (which is defined as getting your opponent on his or her back with any part of both shoulders or both shoulder blades of your opponent in contact with the mat for two seconds). When you pin your opponent, the match is over and you are the winner. If nobody gets pinned, the winner is the wrestler who has scored the most points during the match. For beach wrestling, wrestlers compete inside a 23-inch-diameter circle from a standing position only, with no ground wrestling. For one period, the total match is three minutes long at most. Three points wins the match, but with no pins in beach wrestling, it’s just a matter of taking the opponent down to the sand or out of the circle. One point is given for a take-down or push-out, and two points for a takedown with back exposure. For those interested in doing rather than seeing, many wrestling camps and opportunities are sprouting up all over the coast. Larcomb, for instance, recently offered a Riptide Wrestling Camp. Ross recommends joining local wrestling programs like the Seabrook Rec Center Junk Yard Dogs, Exeter Blue Hawks, or Smitty’s Wrestling Barn in Kingston. For those with some experience, the July 31 match is open to all. No headgear or shoes are required; swimsuits or comfortable clothing are fine. Everyone’s
welcome, as the wrestling divisions are for men and women with competitive weight classes, utilizing round robins within each class (instead of brackets), and run the gamut from elementary, middle and high school to adult, veteran and senior. Ross said wrestling is universal because anyone can do it. “Everyone has wrestled around at some point in their childhood. As long as you’re tough and have the desire to win, that’s the key,” she said. She called the sport unique because it’s physically and mentally challenging. “You have to be prepared to make counter moves, not panic, and remain in control,” she said. “You need to be mentally tough to wrestle. Wrestling also teaches lessons that can be carried over into life — [you] work together as a team, yet you are out there on the mat alone for your match and can only depend on yourself and your own hard work.”

Popping up on the coast
Kensington Kettle entrepreneur finding success with kettle corn By Jocelyn Humelsine firstname.lastname@example.org
Beach boardwalks, harvest festivals and the movies are all fair game for eating copious amounts of popcorn. But if you want popcorn that’s a little different than the standard fare, Scott Michael Brockelbank might have just the taste you’re looking for: kettle corn. Brockelbank is the owner and operator of Kensington Kettle, which is literally popping up all over the seacoast. According to Brockelbank, it’s his 80-quart stainless steel kettle that makes all the difference in the world when popping corn. The basic ingredients belie the complex taste: popping corn, sugar, salt, canola oil. “I’ve been making the same recipe since my godmother showed me how to do it as a kid. I did it once myself and I was hooked,” Brockelbank said. The flavor is just one of his kettle corn’s benefits. “It’s low on calories, no preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors, and it’s vegan. It covers all the ‘frees’: gluten-free, peanut-free, and soy-free,” he said. While the future is brimming with possibilities for flavors and types of popcorn to expand his line, for now his focus is on being a successful college student. “Right now I’m just focusing only on the classic flavor kettle corn because I’m in school full-time and only home on the weekends to make the product, so I’m streamlining with just one thing,” Brockelbank said. Brockelbank is funding his entire UNH education in finance so far through sales from his business. He is, not surprisingly, a member of the Entrepreneur Club, the Investment Group and the Honors College at the Paul College of Business. At 20 years old, he seems to have found his recipe for success.

“I’ve been making [kettle corn] since I was 8 years old. I’d give bags to my teachers and coaches at Christmas. I was 8 at the time, so I wasn’t thinking, ‘Hey, I’ll start my own business,,” said Brockelbank. But 10 years later, the idea sounded pretty good. “My senior year of high school [at Exeter High], I took all my graduation money to invest in myself,” said Brockelbank.

He opened up shop in 2014 and quickly earned his business the oldfashioned way — going door to door. “To do well in these things you just have to not be afraid to go out there and embarrass yourself,” he joked. “I never had a hard time starting up. It just took off right away after I went from place to place like a ‘man to man salesman.’” Word of mouth and a delicious, marketable product enabled him to secure shelf space through in-store accounts, such as On the Vine, Marelli’s Market of Hampton, Deep Meadow Variety Café in Exeter, and Hampton Falls
Village Market and Catering, among others. He also sells at farm stands, festivals, charity events and area town old home days. “I do the Rye and Lee farmers markets, and lots of other events, like Market Square Day in Portsmouth,” Brockelbank said. He gave props to his parents, saying they have been staunch supporters of his efforts and help out whenever they can. “I have a homestead license at our home, which allows us to make the kettle corn right there,” he said.

AT ANI’S BAGEL CAFE If you’re looking to grab a bite to eat for breakfast and sit down and take in the Seacoast atmosphere, Ani’s Bagel Cafe (12 Hampton Road, Exeter, N.H., 603-580-5363, anisbagelcafe.com) has a spot for you. The Scene spoke with owner Ani Georgieva-Petrov about making bagels and running a cafe on the coast.
LowellSummerMusic.Org No Ticket Fees
Fri-Sun, July 29-31
How long has Ani’s been in business on the Seacoast? We have been open about two years now. We opened back in October of 2014. What do you think makes Ani’s unique? We make our own bagels. We bake them as we go. I think we’re the only bagel shop that does that. Everybody else tends to buy them from other companies. We also have other items, such as a different variety of espresso drinks. We offer pastries, sandwiches, and everything is made by me. We’re more of a cafe-type bagel shop as well. Most places, you get your bagel and go, but we’re more like a sit-down place, and we have a great atmosphere. We’re located at Churchill’s Gardens in Exeter, so we are surrounded by beautiful flowers. It’s a unique environment.

What is your personal favorite item at Ani’s? My chicken salad is one of my most popular sandwiches and I’m very proud of it. It’s super delicious. For a bagel, I would have to say our Focaccia made with olive cremento cream cheese. People also love our jalapeno bagels.

have a special type that we do seasonally as well. We can experiment with different sandwiches too. There are six sandwiches always on the menu, then we have a special of the day, week or month sandwich. We play with food all the time.
What is an essential skill when running a store such as Ani’s? To be a people person, definitely, and to love food and to love coffee. You need to have tons of humor as well; otherwise you can’t really survive it.
What celebrity would you like to come into your store? Myself — I was an actress once. Just kidding! We actually get a couple already, such as Stephen King’s son and author Joe King [pen name Joe Hill] comes in quite often and he’s wonderful. As an actor, I would have to say Robert DeNiro or Morgan Freeman.
What is your favorite thing about being located in Exeter? I love Exeter. I just love the community here in Exeter and how close they are. Everybody knows everybody. All the kids know each other. It’s such a close community, which I just love to be apart of. — Vinny Manfrate

Come As A Stranger, Leave As A Friend
One area of the wine business I am always interested in is consumer behavior. How do customers shop for wine, and how do winemakers make their products more appealing? Some winemakers choose to be part of the mix of wines in the aisles of stores, while others choose to sell their products in select shops or just at the winery. Since I am taking a short break from drinking wine to complete a clean eating challenge through my gym, I turned to my Facebook friends to get their feedback on how they shop for wine. I also asked them if they had a favorite, and if so, how they discovered it, or how they discover new wines in general. I compared their responses to the WineBusiness.com 2015 American Wine Consumer Preference Survey. This survey was conducted for the second time in May 2015 and included 1,072 American wine consumers with all 50 states included. In the sample, 59 percent were women and 41 percent were men. The age groups were fairly evenly spread out across the board. Of the entire group, 56 percent said they “consume wine daily or several times per week” — these were called “High Frequency Wine Drinkers.” The other 44 percent were “Occasional Drinkers.” When it came to wine purchase decisions, 72 percent of those surveyed said price was most important, followed by brand at 67 percent. Varietal was next, with only 36 percent, followed by country at 35 percent. They most commonly purchased wine from a liquor store, followed by the grocery store, warehouse/discount store and then a winery tasting room. I wanted to see what some real people that I know personally had to say and asked them on Facebook. Overall, the most common responses were price and label, followed closely by mood (red or white): “I usually start with the grape I want (pretty much always reds), and I will shop by location since I tend to like what’s coming out of California, France and Spain. After that, I really appreciate a vineyard that uses some creativity — in their wine, their story, their label. I’d be lying if I said that price didn’t matter. Usually I can find something great for a decent price, and I’ve learned to never ignore sales. When a $50 petite syrah or pinot are available for under $30, it’s usually an experience worth paying for.” — Rob Other responses that mentioned wine labels: “Definitely by the label … but only reds

will do. Barefoot Merlot is my regular buy, but anything with a quirky label is “tested:” Red Truck, Happy Camper, and don’t forget ‘House Wine.’” — Amy “Typically where they are from and then coolest label.” — Susan “1. Kind of wine, 2. Label (mostly because I’m fairly novice and pretty pictures sell), 3. Price.” — Andrie “I won’t lie, when I’m in the liquor store I look for a cool label. When I’m in a restaurant I just take a chance.” — Carol “After trying all sorts of reds, Sarah and I shop now by kind (malbec). When we finally discovered malbec, we just tried several different kinds of them — usually by the most classy-looking or intriguing-looking label artwork that also didn’t break the bank. Elena Bodega de Mendoza became our favorite. Barefoot’s Malbec is also pretty good on any old day.” — Eric “I have to admit I first judge a wine by the label artwork; however, it is more important to me that the label includes a description of the taste, written in a way that I, a wine lover, not a wine expert, can understand.” — Lindsay Other responses included a specific wine or varietal (Bota Box, chardonnay, wine from New Zealand or Rhode Island) and of course a couple humorous responses like Carlo Rossi (thanks, Eric) and whatever is being poured (Alex). Overall, most people discovered what they liked by going to tastings, trying friends’ wine or by recommendation, or just taking a chance on something through trial and error. And like my friend Nick said, “While I like to go with what I know should be good, I am willing to take a calculated risk to try something new. After all, how much worse is a bad glass of wine than no glass of wine?” I agree.

The Lane Memorial Library (2 Academy Avenue, Hampton, N.H., 603926-3368, hampton.lib.nh.us) will be wrapping its summer reading program in a big way with a party on Tuesday, Aug. 2, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Centre School field (53 Winnacunnet Road, Hampton, N.H.). Attendees will join the library staff for a free evening of lawn games, music, life-size pac-man, light refreshments, a photo board, a kona ice cream truck and more to celebrate the end of the library’s reading program. “It’s something that we do every year,” said Stacy Mazur of the Lane Memorial Library. “We just like to give the kids that signed up one big last chance to celebrate all of the awesome reading that they’ve been doing all summer.” The celebration will feature giveaways and prizes for all levels of summer reading programs from children to adults. Fitbits, gift cards and themed buckets of books and small prizes will be given away throughout the event. “It’s a good opportunity for us to hand out all the prizes that are won throughout the program,” Mazur said. Collaborating with Friends of the Lane Library, the library is able to offer this event free of charge to reading program participants. Using the Centre School field enables the library staff and volunteers to borrow hula hoops, cornhole boards, bouncy balls and more from the Centre School’s gym. The field also gives the freedom for families to bring a picnic

if they’d like. According to Mazur, celebrations and events like this help greatly with motivating children and teens alike to take part in summer reading and to discover new books in general. “We want to get kids into the library,” she said. “When they come for events, they will be here and thinking about books. They go to an event and then immediately check out the teen area or the children’s area and then come out with a stack of books.” Mazur said that summer reading programs help prevent what Scholastic calls the “summer slide” in children and teens.

It’s recommended that teens read at least four books over the course of the summer to keep their minds in learning mode. Then, once they get back to school, they will be ready to start right back up where they ended the previous year. “I love reading, so I just want to promote how books basically give you the ability to entertain yourself without electronics,” Mazur said. “It’s all in your mind, in your imagination. It’s entertainment that you can take anywhere with you.”

The Summer before the War is the follow-up to Helen Simonson’s bestseller Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand. In its essence Summer is a story of love in 1914 England, on the brink of World War I. Young Beatrice arrives in the coastal town of Rye to serve as a Latin teacher there, the first woman ever to do so. Beatrice is young. She is a freethinker and she is more concerned about working for her keep (her father died leaving her penniless) than she is about adhering to ridiculous and outdated blue blood protocol. And yet that is exactly what is expected of her. She gains employment in a tiny town that has never changed and more importantly does not want to change. Not surprisingly Beatrice is met with resistance by the “old guard” while at the same time she is welcomed by the young thinkers. Enter the cultural equalizer of war and we begin to see families torn apart, a love that stretches across classes, and the old ways being challenged and replaced with a more modern way of thinking. There’s a love interest (of course) and there’s outrage (along with a certain amount of humor) at having to make change. Summer is fairly predictable except that Simonson manages to tell the story using superb writing skills. She regales us with a story of lives changing while including a huge dash of civility and even empathy for those left behind. It’s not easy to change even though you must — it’s all so poignant. Summer is the perfect story to read when there’s a lovely breeze on your back porch and you have minted iced tea and mini scones by your side. Filled with historical facts, developed characters and, of course, detailed descriptions of the English countryside, Summer acts as a salve to anyone’s anguish at the ending of Downton Abbey. But don’t think that this book is simply a summer soap-opera romance. Helen
Simonson writes with a lyricism that propels the story forward. Just take a look at this passage: “I think I would like to go home now,” said Beatrice faintly, the pleasures and potential pleasures of the conjured afternoon falling away like so many blowing ashes. As she allowed Hugh to lead her away, she gathered up a few thoughts of the lovelier parts of the afternoon and stowed them away in the back of her mind, where they might remind her at some future date that lovely afternoons do not survive the chill of dusk.” Haunting, elegant and intelligent writing. There are parties, clothing, teas and the grandeur of the elite in early 20-century England. Exactly the kinds of details that some of us just can’t get enough of. Like a long walk in the woods, Summer rambles here and there. It takes its time, but it never cheats us with anything less than storytelling brilliance. A — Wendy E. N. Thomas

L.A. Woman Seacoast welcomes Best Coast By Michael Witthaus
As the name suggests, Best Coast has a serious affinity for its home state. “We’ve got the ocean, got the babes, got the sun, we’ve got the waves, this is the only place for me,” Bethany Cosentino sings on one of their many buoyant songs. Cosentino had the words “California Dreamin’” tattooed on her right arm during the band’s first tour, after a huge storm marked by tornado warnings threatened to cancel a show in Columbus, Ohio. “I was so freaked out and missing home; our old drummer and I decided, let’s just go get tattoos,” Cosentino said by phone recently. “She got a pumpkin to signify the fall; mine signified the fact that I am happy we come from somewhere where we don’t have tornadoes.” Cosentino started Best Coast after a forlorn attempt at living in New York ended in 2009. Once back in Los Angeles, she dialed up teenage pal Bobb Bruno and pitched her idea for a band that exuded both vintage pop and the grittier aspects of SoCal life. “I thought … who had the knowledge of this music and was someone I really like being around? Bobb was that person,” she said. “I reached out to him and the story unfolded from there.” The two shared a love for a wide spectrum of music, from Beach Boys to Best Coast w/ Stargazer Lilies When: Monday, Aug. 1, at 9 p.m. Where: 3S Artspace, 319 Vaughan St., Portsmouth Tickets: $25 at 3sartspace.org

Cocteau Twins, though Bruno doesn’t fit the popster image. “He looks like a guy that would only listen to metal.” Cosentino said. “But he’s basically an encyclopedia; I can say to him, ‘Hey, I want something to sound like if the Ronettes and the Vaselines had a baby,’ and he knows what that means.” Lesley Gore is a key influence — Cosentino told one writer that the 1960s singer was the reason she started the group. The 2015 album California Nights is named for one of her favorite Gore songs. In an eerie twist, Gore died just as the album was named. “It was like a weird cosmic thing from the universe,” Cosentino said. The title track and its namesake are dis-
similar, however. Best Coast’s “California Nights” sounds like a hookup between Brian Wilson and Neko Case while Dark Side of the Moon plays on vinyl in the background. It’s also a cautious celebration: “I never want to get so high that I can’t come back down to real life,” Cosentino sings. “One of the main inspirations of the record was to touch upon the light and dark aspects of L.A. as a place, because I feel like when you live here you see that it’s not all sunshine, palm trees and beautiful people,” Cosentino said. Best Coast deftly balances the E! Network version with the L.A. reflected by Eve Babitz or Tom Waits. The title cut is a showcase for Bruno, a multi-instrumentalist who collects gui-
tar pedals like Pokemon pocket monsters, as well as an evocation of their home’s ambiguity. “I think that song ... taps into California and what it means to people that don’t live here,” she said. “Then it uses some of the darkness that exists here to make this swirling, moody anthem — a lot of people sort of pick up on the vibe.” Plans to work with Butch Walker on the new album never got off the ground. “Butch is an amazing producer and songwriter, an overall great guy, but the vibe just didn’t really feel right at the time,” Cosentino said. “One of the really cool things about being in a creative industry is that you can say, ‘This doesn’t feel right’ … and part on good terms. Butch and I still talk, are still friends and we support one another. We just didn’t feel it was a good fit at the time.” The industry has a harsher side, particularly for women. Cosentino got into the fray earlier this year when she wrote a piece for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter about sexism and misogyny in the music business. In May, she appeared on The Daily Show to discuss the piece. “I’ve always been a very outspoken person, and felt like it was my civic duty as a person with a voice to just say, ‘Hey, this is an issue we should be talking about,’” she said. “It’s not fair that women are being treated differently, not just in this industry but in the world in general.” Cosentino said the response to her stance has been heartening. “It’s nice to know that I’m looked at as this big voice, that’s in turn allowed other women out there to stand up for themselves to be strong and empowered,” she said.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
BEACH BUBBLES Meredith Shulman of Barnstable, Mass., plays with bubbles. Photo by Vinny Manfrate.
The power of prayer
A 28-year-old woman, unnamed in news reports, veered off the road and into a house in the Florida panhandle town of Mary Esther on July 7. She apparently was free of drug or alcohol influence, but readily explained to police that she must have gone through a stop sign and left the road when she closed her eyes to pray as she drove. (The house was damaged, but no one was injured.)
• The Transportation Security Administration announced in May that it had collected $765,000 in loose change left behind in airport scanner trays during 2015, an average “haul” for the agency of $2,100 a day (numbers assuming, of course, that TSA personnel turn in all of the money they find). Los Angeles and Miami airports contributed $106,000 of the total. • Scientists at the University of Cambridge, writing in May in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, claimed to have figured out how to construct a “motor” a “million times” smaller than an ant. (It apparently involves lasers, gold particles and “van der Waals forces,” and the object is to bind the gold particles and then cause them to automatically “snap” apart with, according to author Jeremy Baumberg, “10 to a hundred times
more force per unit than any known other machine.”) • CEO Michael Pearson told a Senate committee in April that he regrets the business model he instituted in 2015 for Valeant Pharmaceuticals, the one that, for example, allowed a drug (Cuprimine) that treats liver failure and formerly cost a typical user out-of-pocket about $3 a pill (120 per month, $366) to, overnight, cost the user $15 a pill. (The insurance company’s and Medicare’s cost went overnight from about $5,000 per 100 tablets to $26,000.) (A Deutsche Bank analysis of the industry tallied Valeant’s all-drug average price spike at more than five times the average of any competitor’s.) Pearson told the senators he had no idea that such a pricing strategy would turn out to be so controversial. • Mark Herron, 49, of Sunderland, England, was arrested again in May his 448th arrest on alcohol-related charges. The year started “well” for Herron, with only 14 collars through March, and he cleaned up briefly before a “family bereavement” sent him spiraling downward again. His current lawyer admitted that his client has been in court more often than he himself has. • Austrian Hans Heiland vowed in June to assist a needy family in Oberholz by donating to a charity fundraiser sponsored by the local fire department. He has been collecting bottle tops through the years
SEACOAST SCENE | JULY 28 - AUGUST 3, 2016 | PAGE 54
and figures he could sell his “treasure” now, as scrap metal, to help the family. He has at least 10 million caps, weighing “several tons.” • In May, the federal government finally shut down a long-running international scam that had sold psychic assurances (prosperity! winning lottery numbers!) to more than a million Americans. In personalized form letters, two French psychics had guaranteed success and riches to clients if they would only buy their $50 books (and massive upselling usually followed). The Justice Department estimated that during the spree, the sellers earned upward of $180 million on at least 56 million pieces of postal mail. • In a June verdict still reverberating through the telemarketing industry, a jury in Utah found that three companies run by Forrest Baker III had illegally made 99 million phone calls to consumers on the Do Not Call Registry and an additional 18 million calls telling people they were merely doing surveys when the purpose was hawking their family-friendly movies. Both charges are violations of the Federal Trade Commission’s Telemarketing Sales Rule. Although the total fine and damages have not been decided, the law provides that the most serious offenders could be assessed $16,000 per phone call (for a maximum of almost $1.9 trillion). • A recent study by a Harvard University data scientist estimated that the government of China funds the creation of at least 488 million bogus social-media posts a year. The report refers to a rumored governmentsponsored arrangement that pays people
the equivalent of 8 U.S. cents per post of “news” for the purpose of distracting social-media users and channeling them to subjects preferred by the government (such as successes of the Communist Party). • The family of a Virginia Tech student missing since 1998 was notified in March that the man’s remains and ID had been found in a wooded ravine 700 feet below the New River Gorge bridge near Beckley, West Virginia in an area the man’s vehicle tracker had long identified for potential searching. A West Virginia State Police sergeant told reporters that in the years since the student disappeared, the remains of 48 other bodies had been found underneath the bridge.
A News of the Weird classic (August 2012)
New Mexico is an “open carry” state, with otherwise-law-abiding adults authorized to display loaded handguns in public. However, in the town of Vaughn (pop. 500, about 90 miles east of Albuquerque), perhaps the only people not legally able to carry are the town’s two police officers. A June (2012) KOB-TV report revealed that Chief Ernest Armijo had been convicted in 2011 of criminal non-support of a wife and two sons, and was barred from possessing a gun. Deputy Brian Bernal has his own domestic issue: a conviction for family violence that bans him, under federal law, from carrying. (A month after the News of the Weird story, both men resigned, leaving the town’s police dog the only active “officer.”) Visit weirduniverse.net.
