Trail sale

Swap, sell or buy a bike and support Seabrook Rail Trail By Ashlyn Daniel-Nuboer

Whether you have big plans for Labor Day or nothing to do at all, if you’ve got a bike you want to swap, sell or buy, you might want to make time for the Seabrook Rail Trail Bike Sale/Swap. Recycled Sports of N.H. and the Friends of Seabrook Rail Trail have teamed up to host the Rail Trail Bike Sale/Swap on Monday, Sept. 5, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you have an old bike that needs a new home or need a new bike to enjoy the beautiful New England weather transition from summer to fall, you can do it all at this event. “You see a huge variety of bikes at these events. You see a lot of mountain bikes, road bikes, vintage bikes. Almost any kind of bicycles you could imagine will likely get sold,” New England Territory Manager Derek Griggs said. Vendors can sell everything from bikes to cycling clothing, bike parts, or any other type of biking-relating materials. Admission is free; to be a vendor, the cost is $30 per booth. The Friends of Seabrook Rail Trail encourage vendors to meet up with friends and buy a booth together to save on the costs. Whether you are selling or buying, all proceeds will go to the nonprofit Friends of Seabrook Rail Trail. Their mission is to create a recreational trail for walkers, runners and bikers that will be a part of the East Coast Greenway.

The two-and-a-half-mile-long Seabrook section will be just a small part of the East Coast Greenway, stretching from Maine all the way to Florida. According to the East Coast Greenway’s website, the trail is “the nation’s most ambitious long-dis-

tance urban trail.” The Seabrook portion of the trail helps to link the East Coast Greenway, creating a place to travel on foot or by bike without fear of getting hit by a car and providing an opportunity to reduce carbon dioxide pollution. Although the Seabrook Rail Trail is going to be something new for the community, the trail will exist on the old railway that once ran through Seabrook. “Railroad service covered almost all of the United States at one point and there is railbed everywhere,” Griggs said. “What we’re looking to do is receate that connectedness that we used to have of all the railroad lines between the towns with these rail trails so that people can travel on foot or with their bicycle and be able to get out of their cars and still get to other places outside of their own town.” To support these efforts, stop by or set up a booth at the Seabrook Rail Trail Bike Sale/Swap event on Monday, Sept. 5, at the Seabrook Community Center on 311 Lafayette Road in Seabrook, N.H., where everyone can play a part in the creation of the Rail Trail and also participate in a community event for bike riders, lovers, enthusiasts and everything in between.

How locals are cultivating culture on the coast

Once found in only the largest of venues, art, music and entertainment can now be found in small shops, cafes and intimate settings on any given night in nearly every town along the Seacoast. This expansion of arts and culture is supported by a very important concept: keeping it local.

Injecting “local” into art and music

“It’s all about locally produced art and music,” said Exeter resident Scott Ruffner, a musician who also produces music through his label, TVP Records. “There is a lot of interest right now regarding how to best support musicians and artists who call the Seacoast home.” Jennifer Desrosiers, owner of Laney & Lu Café, said she shares this interest, which is why she holds live music events at her vibrant food community cafe in downtown Exeter. “I want our guests to be immersed in ‘local’ with every aspect of their experience here,” she said. “We utilized local resources and reclaimed wood artists for the cafe build-out and we source locally and sustainably produced foods — filling the space with local music is very important to me.” After discussions with Ruffner, Desrosiers said she has begun to stream local music at Laney & Lu Café nearly every day. “I feel like our mantra as a business

is 'build community’ — expanding this idea to include local music makes a lot of sense and makes us unique,” she said. Expressing excitement at the partnership with Laney & Lu Café, Ruffner said he is talking with other restaurants in Exeter to also stream local music. He referred to the growing acceptance of his and others’ ideas on the importance of supporting local art and music as the equivalent to what’s happening with food and craft brews. “Everybody seems to get the ‘eat and drink local’ movements and how they support the local economy,” he said. “That message does not seem to apply to art, music and entertainment, but it should.” Ruffner’s strong feelings about the need to promote everything related to local art and music led him to form the Art Industry Alliance in 2014. “I formed the Alliance for several reasons with maybe the most practical being that I wanted to help Seacoast-based professional artists, musicians and entertainers gain maximum exposure for their work,” he said.

Mike Bellamente, co-owner and managing director of The Green Alliance, believes AIA serves an important role on the greater Seacoast. “There are trends indicating that young professionals are adamant about shopping their values, which typically relate to healthier, more environmentally sustainable alternatives,” he said. In working to meaningfully connect both organizations, Bellamente plans to collaborate with AIA on several initiatives in the future. Their first collaboration will center on how to further develop opportunities for local musicians. “We want to bring a ‘listen local’ eleTEAM events Thursday Night Live outdoor music series

ment that supports them in a way that keeps them part of the vibrant cultural fabric of the Seacoast,” he said. “It will also support the local economy.” He said he also wants to try and figure out how to encourage people to step outside their geographical comfort zone. “There seem to be invisible boundaries that people can’t go beyond — each town remains a little isolated from the other,” he added. “I’d love to get people from Portsmouth to head up to Dover and people from Dover to head to Exeter. Each town offers its own experience, flavor and vibe.”

TEAM (Town.Exeter.Arts. Music)

In Exeter, the effort to create opportunities for local artists and musicians has been formalized through TEAM, one of several town-specific community initiatives developed by AIA. “We are working with businesses and civic groups in town to promote and in some cases organize original programming, projects and events,” Ruffner said. Noting Laney & Lu Café was one of the first businesses he approached, he said Desrosiers’ enthusiasm typifies the

growing awareness by many that supporting local art and music is important for the economy. “If we can create ways for local artists and musicians to make a living here on the Seacoast, they will turn around and invest those dollars right back into the community,” he said. “They should be able to make a living just like anyone else.” Desrosiers agrees and said she plans to host more events in the future. “Supporting ‘local’ is something a lot of us in town care about,” she said. “I’m Second Saturday Where: B.

Award-winning singer-songwriter David Drouin and his band Cold Engines, fresh off receiving the title of Best Rock Band at the New England Music Awards, will be featured at two upcoming gigs on the Seacoast: Saturday, Sept. 10, at 9 p.m. at RiRa in Portsmouth and Saturday, Sept. 24, at 1 p.m. at The Amesbury Brewfest, Amesbury Sports Park.

happy to do my part.” Epoch Restaurant & Bar is another venue in Exeter that has increasingly begun to showcase local musical talent. Ruffner cited “a strong partnership” with their management team and expressed excitement at their upcoming outdoor music series there. Other ongoing TEAM initiatives include its FIRST FRIDAYS series, which takes place on the first Friday of most months with live music on the Bandstand in the center of Exeter’s downtown. Art is also a big part of the series, with themed art show openings at the Exeter Arts Committee 2nd Floor Gallery above Town Hall and at Seacoast Artist Association. The next event in the series will be between 4 and 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 2, with a special "Abstract" edition to help kick off the Exeter UFO Festival. After the event, live music will follow at Station 19 at 8p.m. with Cold Engines, a Seacoast band that recently won Best Rock Band at the 2016 New England Music Awards. “It’s a chance to experience some great local art and hear some of the Seacoast's finest musicians and producers,” Ruffner said. “It’s exciting to see the growth of Exeter’s arts and culture scene. Exeter-based artists and musicians are also enthused at the development of new opportunities to demonstrate their respective crafts, including accomplished artist Rose Bryant, who said she is thrilled at the emergence of TEAM. “I think TEAM has been very successful,” she said. “Scott has approached businesses all throughout town to coordi-

While the promotion of local art and music is happening throughout the Seacoast, Dover’s art and music scene is “booming,” according to Brian Cartier. A visual artist who creates custom shoes and works in media ranging from oversized charcoal portraits to hand-painted murals, oils and acrylics, Cartier also hosts live music and art events in his speakeasystyled space at B. Cartier Studio. “The Seacoast is bursting at the seams with talent,” he said. “Just on this fourth floor of this mill [in downtown Dover], I cannot keep track of everything that is happening.” He expressed particular enthusiasm for Wrong Brain, located next door, which provides a venue and outlet for “unconventional, under-represented and emerging local artists, writers and musicians.” “Wrong Brain and I are complete opposites from one another, but we both provide an alternative to classic land-

scapes and lighthouses,” he said. He said the burgeoning arts and culture scene in Dover highlights the quality of musicians and artists living throughout the Seacoast. “The Seacoast area is home to many artists who have shown [their work] and proven to have national or international appeal,” he said. “We have musicians and artists that have toured or have clients and exhibitions all over the country and beyond.” Ruffner agrees and said the term “local” should not be taken to mean “unprofessional” or “unaccomplished.” “The talent we have here on the Seacoast is recognized throughout New England, the country and even internationally,” he said. “We have some accomplished SCOTT RUFFNER heavy hitters that have won all kinds of awards. The Seacoast could really be an arts and music destination if cultivated properly.'' As in Exeter and other Seacoast towns, local businesses in Dover are involved in actively promoting local artists and musicians. In the heart of Dover’s bustling downtown, the recently opened Flight Coffee Co. will soon hold its inaugural First Friday Gallery Night, which will feature the work of local artists. Across the street from 7th Settlement, a community-supported farm-to-table brewpub, the Children's Museum of New Hampshire in Dover also fully supports the local art community. According to Cartier, the Museum pays local artists to create “extremely large installations” on the front facade of its building. “It is work all commissioned from artists based here in the immediate area,” he said. “I am fortunate enough to have the current exhibition, which will be in place until November.” According to Ruffner, Dover’s emergence as a cultural epicenter speaks to a need in the community. “With all due respect to Portsmouth, people want alternatives — Dover, Exeter and other towns along the Seacoast are exactly that,” he said.

Ask artists in nearly any creative medium about their greatest challenge and the answer will most likely not have anything to do with the work itself, but the business side of their respective craft. “Whether it is art, music, entertainment or any other creative medium, the

challenge is how to turn these endeavors into sustainable business enterprises,” Ruffner said. On the Seacoast, the challenge of doing business for local artists and musicians — even those known far outside the area — is more difficult than some might expect. Critically acclaimed Cold Engines’ front man Dave Drouin said he sees an injustice across the region. “There are very few opportunities for local musicians to play at some of the Seacoast’s largest venues,” he said. “They tend to bring in groups from well outside the area.” Longtime New Hampshire resident Ingrid Chavez — a recording artist,

songwriter and actress who has had international musical success and starred in movies with Prince — has experienced similar frustrations. “I have a new independent project called Black Eskimo that was recorded here, so we had a desire to be part of music community here and actively promote the album,” said Chavez, who also co-wrote Madonna’s No. 1 hit “Justify My Love” with Lenny Kravitz. “It was difficult, though, for us to gain access to venues that prefer mostly folk rock acts or cover artists.” For Randy Armstrong, a worldrenowned professional musician who lives on the coast and is currently serving on the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, such challenges are disturbing. Armstrong said he always felt that organizations that receive public funding have distinct responsibilities. “They should nurture emerging artists in their respective communities through bookings and presentations,” he said. “Many nonprofit theater, music, dance, visual arts venues in the Seacoast do substantial community outreach, but there needs to be more opportunities for our community artists to perform and present in ‘our’ community.” Meanwhile, independently owned venues also face challenges. “Food, beer and liquor aren't tough sells, but for some reason the ticket prices for our shows are hard for some of our clientele to swallow,” said Abby

Behind the art When Rose Bryant sits down to work, she said, she gravitates to organic subject matter, which could include trees, landscapes, grasses and flowers. She enjoys painting local architectural features as well. In rendering what she sees around her, she does not try to capture it with “hard lines.” “My work is more fluid; my technique and style is definitely loose and on the verge of abstract,” she said. Saturated color is important for Bryant, as she reframes what she sees to encourage the viewer to look slightly deeper and longer into her work. One of her favorite pieces is a landscape of a snow scene that uses all pinks, grays, purples and gold. “You still know it is a landscape, but I like to use colors that people might not be expecting in reality,” she said. “I love the energy of the color and the great energy behind the emotional connection of the work.” For Cartier, his inspiration to create visuals in a variety of media stems from his fascination with the creative process itself. “It is amazing what can inspire something else,” he said. “I might move to a charcoal piece or a mural and move a brush a certain way and something could click on an unrelated project. … It’s a pretty cool process.” Regarding acceptance of his work by the

larger community, Cartier said his challenge has always been that it speaks to “a more urban, contemporary clientele.” “I believe the area is catching up, though,” he said. “There is more diversity now than in the past and the market for my work is growing locally.” Regarding people’s reaction to her art, Bryant acknowledged the Seacoast has conservative tendencies. Many art appreciators, for instance, want to find realistic representations as opposed to abstract. “It’s not a bad thing, but it does affect how my particular art is received by the potential buyer, which means I have to develop relationships with people to whom my art speaks,” she said. Regardless of the acceptance of her work, she said she cannot envision any other way of life. “I cannot imagine our human days on this planet without the celebrations and witnessing of creativity — whether it be in children or adults or nature,” she said. For Cartier, the rub is that the creative process is somewhat best experienced anonymously. “There is always that fine line between wanting to be well-known and enjoying being a secret in the mill,” he said.

Sapochetti, general manager at The Stone Church in Newmarket. “I think there's this sense that people will only pay for music if they are going to a concert at a large stadium venue or a listening room.” She said she believes people do not understand that smaller venues like The Stone Church are connected to and actively support local artists and musicians. “At least 85 percent of all of our income from ticket sales goes directly to the bands,” she said. “The other portion covers the costs of employing a full-time sound engineer, maintaining our sound system, and upgrading our equipment as technology changes so quickly.” There is a silver lining for some of these venues: Sapochetti cited a strong response to events specifically designed to attract a wider audience than “the standard 21-andover crowd.” “Because we put a premium on providing a variety of high-quality music on Sunday afternoons and early evenings, for example, we have been able to attract families and their children,” she said. According to Ruffner, the success experienced at The Stone Church and at various cafes and alternative venues speaks to changing attitudes. “There are a lot of people in my age demographic with small children who want more entertainment than a kids’ festival with balloons and kid sing-alongs,” he

said. “We want good art and music shows, and we aren’t afraid to pay for them.”

Looking ahead

Although leaving the area to pursue opportunities elsewhere, current AIA advisory board member and accomplished jazz drummer Jose Roman Duque said he believes the local arts and music scene has a bright future. “We need to bring this conversation and movement to the forefront and confront the reality of our industry, while retaining a good grasp on how to uplift and generate something sustainable for working artists,” he said. According to Ruffner, there is substantial reason to believe what is generally marketed as the local art and culture scene will become a reality. “There is too much talent here, too much momentum,” he said. “It’s all about art and music. We need to move beyond the rhetoric.” Artist Erin Thomas, one of the driving forces behind forming the Berwick Art Association to advocate that a creative economy could thrive in town, said the key is to put support in the right place. “If you want more art, hire an artist,” she said. “If you want music, hire a musician. Pay them fairly.

Sitting parked for extended period will not damage a car

Dear Car Talk: I own a Honda Fit that is included in the big air-bag recall. Honda has provided me with a loaner car while we wait for parts to fix the problem (thank you, Honda). When Honda gives you a loaner, you sign a statement agreeing not to drive your car at all. The recall notice from Honda also indicates that the Fit should not be driven until the repairs are made. My car has now been sitting in my garage for nearly three months. What damage might be happening


won’t be expecting you to start it and drive it in. And the tow-truck driver will jump-start the car if he needs to. Then Honda will recharge the battery when they make the repairs. And then when your car is completely repaired, you can drive your loaner back to the Honda dealer, swap it for your car, and leave them the football helmet, too. Dear Car Talk: When I’m driving my 2007 Audi Q7, water will pour out from under the console into both the passenger and driver’s sides. My carpet is now soaked. No one knows what the problem is. Some say it’s the wells that are clogged, but not so. I need advice! — Trina You didn’t order the Audi footbath feature, did you? It sounds like the drain for your AC evaporator is plugged up. When you run the air conditioner, moisture gets removed from the air inside the car. That moisture then collects in the evaporator housing, and is supposed to drain out onto the ground through a small tube under the car. But yours isn’t draining. Over time, the tube can get clogged up

by stuff that travels through your ventilation system: dust, pollen, the occasional rodent. Then the housing around the evaporator fills up with water, and when you turn left or right, you suddenly wish you were wearing your waterproof boots. You can test this theory by starting the car and letting it run in your driveway for half an hour with the AC on. When you look underneath the car, you should see a small puddle of water. If not, that drain is plugged. Your mechanic will put it up on the lift and clear out that rubber drain using compressed air. He should wear his fireman’s hat when he does it, because once he removes the debris, that stored water probably will pour out onto his head. If you do see water dripping under the car when you do the test, the other possibility is that your sunroof drains are clogged. They also can be cleared out with compressed air, but it’s a little more involved. And if it’s neither of those, then you probably have a leak around your windshield seal. But I’d put my money on the AC evaporator drain, Trina, which is the cheapest and easiest to fix. Good luck. Visit

to my car, if anything, because it has been sitting for so long? — Fred Nothing. The worst thing that will happen is that the battery will go dead and you’ll lose all your radio presets. It’s possible that the belts will dry out a little bit and you’ll get a small amount of surface rust on your brake discs, which will wear off in 20 minutes of driving. I guess if you’re truly unlucky, a family of mice might move in and procreate under your hood. Even mice find the Fit roomy. If you had written to us when you first parked the Fit, I would have suggested that you disconnect the battery. But it’s kind of done that on its own. It’s probably dead by now, and will need to be recharged. But that’s not a big deal. If it’s not dead, I suppose you could run the engine for half an hour every other week or so. You’re not supposed to drive it, but I assume there’s no danger in starting it. Well, just to be safe, put on a football helmet and turn your head to the right before you turn the key. But honestly, Fred, at this point I would do nothing; just leave it. When Honda calls you and says your parts are in, tell them to send a tow truck to come and get it. After all, it’s not safe for you to drive it, so they

We encourage you to schedule a tour. Tours are led by knowledgeable staff that will help answer your ques�ons. You will see our academic facili�es, residence halls, student center, the Library, Wellness Center and our Cafeteria.

What sort of changes have you seen there? Technology has changed everything. Even when you think of just products, there are more options of everything that makes a lot of things a challenge. It is hard to stock everything and difficult to choose what is going to be the next hot thing. You have to order so far in advance — six months — so you really don’t know if what you order will still be in demand when you actually get it in stock.

better for someone’s foot, for instance, but the person could end up picking something else to simply be accepted. How has downtown Exeter changed through the years? Stores have become more unique and specialized. Today, there is no real basic clothing store or grocery store in town — it’s all more specialized types of retail. Are these changes a good thing? I think that unfortunately people tend to go to big box stores to get their basic items. They stopped going downtown for that sort of stuff, so that type of store could not survive downtown anymore. What about your business? How are you doing? We are doing pretty good and hanging in there with everybody else. It’s much more difficult to fight the internet. There is a lot of showrooming today where people try things here and then go home and buy online. That’s what goes on today. What do you feel differentiates your brand? We provide great customer service. For the last 96 years, we have treated our employees and our customers like we want to be treated. We special order for people and sometimes truthfully tell people we just don’t have the right product for them.

Do you work together with local downtown shops? Yes, we do have a working group of businesses downtown to promote ourselves and to give back to the community. We also have a number of free-of-charge events like the outdoor movies on the Parkway on Thursdays in the summer. We also do a lot of things behind the scenes, too, by giving to nonprofits. People sometimes don’t realize how much we support other organizations where internet companies don’t. There really is a reason to shop local — the money stays here.

Looking ahead, any changes on the horizon for you? We are always looking for the next big thing, but I never could have imagined 10 years ago what I have today. ... I do know that we will continue to do the basics like we have for the last 96 years — helping customers any way we can, seeing what they want and talking to them.

Anything you know today that you wish you knew years ago? I don’t think so. I have always told people that I don’t consider myself a business person. I am a man who owns a business.

Stand up and downward dog Find active serenity with SUP yoga By Jocelyn Humelsine

Yoga is both grounding and calming, and SUP is now a household acronym. Combining the two is nothing short of surreal. On Tuesdays, Sept. 6 and Sept. 20, you can do just that with SUP Yo, Free Spirit, at Seabrook Harbor from 6:15 to 7:30 p.m. for a sunset oasis of serenity via standup paddleboard yoga. “So the inspiration, for starters, it gets you out in nature, which is great. It challenges your yoga practice by increasing focus and concentration [and] core strength, all surrounded by the elements,” said Jana Olenio, founder and yoga teacher at SUP Yo. “We teach in six locations every single day, always in bays and harbors where the water is calm; we are safe in the harbor. There are no waves so we can take classes out every day where we are protected,” she said. For Rye and Seabrook, where they have to bear with the tides, classes are held every other week. “We have to schedule according to tides, and it’s limited to after and before work, sunset or sunrise, which are the most popular,” Olenio said. “We go out 8 to 10 feet in the water and anchor. It’s a floating classSUP? Celebrating their five-year anniversary this year, SUP Yo will be at Fort Point Pier in Boston Harbor on Sept. 3 for all-day music, raffles and $5 classes. For yoga hikes and retreats, book far in advance. For regular classes, visit to register online. Classes are posted 30 days in advance and fill up quickly, making walk-ins rare.

room environment. We do a complete yoga class on board.” Describing her type of yoga as flow yoga, Olenio explained, “We do pretty much everything on the board: sitting, standing, inverted, arm balances. Our classes are for all levels.” She noted that while it’s a prerequisite to have taken a yoga class before, SUP experience is not required, with about 90 percent of students never having done it at all. “We teach class in a way that helps students acclimate on board, in a gradual way: board-building confidence,” she said. “Everyone comes off saying, ‘I loved it, can’t wait to do it again.’ People become obsessed with it because it’s such a challenge, being out there at sunset under the painted sky is just magical.” And what might possess someone to leave the safety of land grounding for sea serenity? “The water element being added is challenging. We need to modify poses a bit, widening our stance. The difference is in where we’re putting our hands and feet, widening everything for core balance, keeping weight in the center or redistributing your weight. It’s the sweet spot you have to find,” said Olenio. According to Olenio, a good instructor will be cuing the students. “I tell my group 1 out of 10 people fall into the water, but if you’re following the instructor, you most likely won’t go swimming,” she said. “As a teacher, one of my favorite things is watching students who may start off having fear or anxiety about it to watching them gain peace and gain confidence, feeling empowered when they get off.” Olenio is an adventure-seeker, and she offers an array of outdoor yoga excursions to up the SUP ante. “I really don’t do land yoga, although

I sub in the off-season, but mostly I take groups to destination retreats where water is involved with other activities,” said Olenio, who last year hosted an excursion to Greece. This year, Olenio is taking a group of 12 adventurers to Croatia from Sept. 10 to Sept. 17. “I went to Croatia last year, experienced it for the first time myself. I felt a culmination of everything we stand for as a company. Croatia is an outdoor paradise of old-world traditional beauty. It’s an up-and-coming destination for Americans, ahead of the game of the totally saturated yoga market,” said Olenio, who added that she hired an outdoor adventure group to guide them on myriad excursions — hiking, rafting, canyoning, biking — “so the whole week isn’t SUP and you just have to be moderately fit and active to do everything.”

They’ll soon be promoting their 2017 fall excursion to Iceland, which should be booked six months to a year in advance. If that’s too far to roam, Olenio is on the go in the White Mountains as well. “We started on a small scale with about eight people to the White Mountains for two days. We’d do SUP, have a bonfire. We called it Back to Earth. Things started to grow and we stopped that for a while, but I’m bringing it back next year. We want to do a lot more with it, hike to an AMC hut on a lake, do SUP yoga, then hike and relax and just be out there. On top of the mountain is spectacular,” she said. Although not an integral part of the retreats, a simple meditation is offered to get things rolling. “When we do the Back to Earth retreats, we start with a grounding meditation against a tree trunk to get rooted, but I’m more an adventure person. We do this meditation just to connect to the space that you’re in,” she said. There seems to be no limits to yogic opportunities, as Olenio’s pursuits and very full schedule can attest. For instance, SUP Yo has hosted a three-day summer retreat in Stowe, Vermont, on a horse ranch, doing yoga on horses and hiking. “We took 30 people; it was a big hit,” she said. Additionally, each April, they travel to Mexico for a paddleboard teacher training retreat. “We do a lot of one-on-one, a lot of private groups for studios, fitness centers, CrossFit, girlfriend outings, corporate team builders. We’re really busy for a very short season. In September we’re still on the water with a light schedule, then close SUP at the end of September and open the weekend before Memorial Day in May — we have a big Rye Harbor celebration that weekend,” she said.

SATURDAY, Sept. 10th at 8-11pm


SATURDAY, Sept. 17th at 6-9pm

New Hampshire is home to one of the most unexplained and highly publicized alleged UFO sightings in history, an account back on Sept. 3, 1965, from two Exeter police officers and a 19-year-old man named Norman Muscarello that has simply been coined the “Exeter Incident.” This Labor Day weekend, the 51st anniversary of the incident will be celebrated with a series of UFO- and paranormal-themed lectures, along with several children’s and family-oriented events. The seventh annual festival will be held Saturday, Sept. 3, and Sunday, Sept. 4, and is a major fundraiser for the Exeter Area Kiwanis Club. Bill Smith of the Exeter Kiwanis said the 1965 incident actually occurred in the neighboring town of Kensington, but because Muscarello was an Exeter resident and Exeter police responded and allegedly witnessed the UFO, it’s become known as the “Exeter Incident.” “Norman ... was walking back to his home in the middle of the night when he saw this thing hover and saw it move,” Smith said. “So off he goes to the Exeter police station, and then the two officers who went out there to investigate saw it too. That was what really gave this incident some legs, was that these were trained officers who supposedly saw this thing too.” Smith said local researcher and historian Dean Merchant started the UFO Festival in 2010 out of a fascination with alleged UFO sightings and alien abductions. “Dean was disappointed that no one at the time had seemed to remember this incident in ’65,” he said, “and when he did his research, he found out that it was probably the most documented and researched sighting in the country, ranking with Roswell. So when he realized that it was something of a historic nature, he invited some prominent speakers of the day and asked them if they Exeter UFO Festival

wanted to do a lecture series on ufology and UFOs in general.” Smith said the first festival drew a modest following of around 100 people despite some initial skepticism among the town’s citizens, and since then it has continued to grow. “It’s understandable that several years ago, people would say, ‘Are you nuts?’ ... or, ‘This is embarrassing,’” Smith said. “But as Dean persisted in expanding [the festival], people began to kind of see that these were educated people and not just a congregation of people walking around town with aluminum foil on their heads.” Smith said last year’s festival drew national attention because it observed the 50th anniversary of the incident, and it was also the first year the event expanded from one to two days. “What we do is try to get a mix of both local and international speakers,” he said. “We do a little bit of rehash of the Incident at Exeter, and an update on everything there and what is new, but most of the speakers that come in now talk about a wide variety of topics.” Topics this year include “Evidence of UFO Coverups by Government Agencies,” by author and ufologist Kathleen Marden, and “Origins of the UFO Ridicule Factor,” by investigative writer and lecturer Peter Robbins. Ryan Mullahy of New Hampshire UFO Research will be there to speak about other documented sightings in the Granite State. A New Hampshire organization called the Seacoast Saucers will give a presentation that will highlight social awareness of UFOs. “They will talk about why this topic is still considered to be a taboo in today’s society,

despite all these sightings that have spanned over decades,” Smith said. The festival will also feature a staged “crash site,” made up of recyclable materials and set up along Exeter’s townhouse commons. “It becomes an arts and crafts event for the kids,” Smith said. “They collect the stuff and make ray guns, space packs, laser rockets, and other space- and UFO-related stuff. We’ve been doing that for three or four years now and it’s always a big hit with the kids.” UFO-themed face painting, T-shirts, balloons and other items will also be offered at the townhouse commons. “The speakers are generally more adultoriented, and some of them can get really technical,” Smith said. “So with [the Kiwanis Club] being more youth-oriented, we want to make it a fun event for the kids too.” This year, for the first time, the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce has arranged a trolley service for people to visit the site in Kensington where the alleged UFO sighting took place. “Mike Stevens from Seacoast Saucers is going to be on the trolley and will give a narrative of the incident itself that should dovetail nicely into the site’s visit,” Smith said. A $20 donation is requested for the lecture portion of the event; kids’ activities and other events happening outside of town hall are free, with varying costs for food and merchandise. A special meet and greet with each of the speakers will be offered at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Exeter from 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday; the cost for that is $20, and tickets are limited.

Bacon, eggs and a sideshow of Cessnas — you can have it all at the Airfield Café in North Hampton, where breakfast and lunch are served with runway views. Open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., the cafe has an extensive breakfast and lunch menu, and both are available all day. It’s been family-owned and -operated since 1996. “We had a restaurant at the Hampton Falls Inn, but the hotel closed in the ’90s recession. A good friend was a pilot and asked my parents about taking over the café. We jumped at the chance, and here we are 20 years later,” owner Scott Aversano said. Things are going so well that the café is in need of expansion. It’s been in the planning board process for three years now, and Aversano hopes to build an entirely new structure. “We’re trying to accomplish a remodel, to build a new space in front of the old building for a handicap bathroom, adding seats, a counter, a bigger kitchen. We have so much volume, this would also keep the wait times down and offer better views of the runway,” he said. Whether it’s those views of the runway, the food or a combination of the two that makes this café so popular, Aversano said customers of all ages seem to love it. “We have an incredible mix of people, from families and kids to the elderly retired community, some who used to be in aviation. Everyone loves the deck. This morning, for instance, I came in and overheard a little kid singing the word ‘airplane.’ You could hear the energy and excitement in his voice. We see that all the time. I’ve been here 20 years now and it never gets old,” Aversano said. And then there’s the food. The breakfast menu features items like Belgian waffles, crepes, pancakes and sausage gravy with biscuits and eggs. “Two things that go huge here are omelets and eggs Benedict. ... There’s no charge per item like most places, so you can build your own with everything on it,” Aversano said. Lunch items include subs (like grilled kielbasa, steak or shaved chicken), sandwiches (like the cajun chicken), chicken tenders, seafood dishes, salads and more. “We do homemade home fries; it’s one of our staples that won’t ever change. My dad started it and it’s labor-intensive.” he said. Aversano said they also make all their own sauces, spice rubs and hollandaise. The café offers daily specials in which

Aversano is more easily able to use locally sourced ingredients. “Generally [when something is] on the special board we like to see if it will make it onto the menu or not. We need seasonal changes to gauge if it will work — if not then it’s taken off. We did a cinnamon streusel French toast. We’re doing Oreo pancakes that the kids are going crazy for,” Aversano said. While they do everything possible to accommodate allergies, this is another facet that Aversano hopes to improve in the new building. “Right now we don’t even have an extra outlet to install a new toaster that would be entirely gluten-free. … We want to expand what we can offer,” he said. Aversano always knew he wanted to be in the restaurant industry and comes from a long line of hard-working individuals. “I started working in the eighth grade; even as a kid this is what I wanted to do. I was fortunate being able to work with my father. When we opened this he was doing 100 hours a week and I was doing 80, so I couldn’t complain,” he joked. “I’m pret-

ty fortunate that my two kids now love to work here, and my daughter is taking business classes.” Good old-fashioned word of mouth has skyrocketed the café into iconic status. “We’ve had great longevity in the restaurant business,” Aversano said. “We’re busy all summer, then I say the locals get their restaurant back in the fall. We have regulars here every day, tourists, plus the pilots. It’s a captive audience for the people who fly in — Pipers, Cessnas, mostly single-engines, sometimes biplanes.” Even for the pilots, the café is a cool place to fly. “A couple of weeks ago, we had a man fly in from New York City just to eat here. He said he had heard of us and wanted to try it. I said, wow, we better make this right! Being on the coast, it’s beautiful and the pilots wanted a restaurant. It’s a good excuse to see the coast,” Aversano said. Aversano takes great pride in the waitstaff; with six family members on board, they actually consider everyone on staff family. “We work with a lot of young kids. 39

AT AL’S SEAFOOD RESTAURANT AND MARKET Al’s Seafood (51 Lafayette Road, North Hampton, N.H., 603-964-9591, sits on a gravel lot off the ever busy Route 1. You can’t miss the wide blue building with the lobster on top. But it’s not your average seafood restaurant. The first door leads directly into the fresh fish market, and the kitchen, from which you can smell the sweet scent of the fish batter, sits to the left of the market. The chalkboard menu of the restaurant’s takeout window lists dozens of dining options in colorful lettering. If you don’t want to

eat in the ocean-themed dining room, you can take any menu option home. Previously owned by Al Courchene, the restaurant was recently purchased by Debra Boutot and Bret Taylor. The pair have brought their own flair to the restaurant by adding a lobster company to the already versatile restaurant. Still, the Taylors strive to maintain Al’s legacy of quality customer service and delicious fish. The Scene caught up with General Manager Jim Noyes and “basically retired lifetime manager” Rich Molton.

And she literally comes to every holiday at our house,” he added. Likewise, Aversano just attended a wedding of a former employee, who got married at the airfield.

“She started a week after her 14th birthday, went on to college, and we were so touched [that] she invited us to her wedding,” he said. For Aversano, it’s all about running a happy operation. “It’s a lot of fun [and] rewarding to see kids go through school, come back for summer shifts, keep in touch after they leave,” he said. “I can teach you to cook, I can teach you how to work, but I can’t teach personality.

Out-of-state travels Wine tastings as a tourist By Stefanie Phillips

I always like supporting our local New Hampshire winemakers, but occasionally I go on trips that take me out of the state. What is a tourist like me to do? Go wine tasting, of course! Thankfully my boyfriend enjoys this too, so recently while we were in Connecticut, we checked out Stonington Vineyards. We pulled up to the winery on a Saturday afternoon ahead of the tour time advertised on their website. The place was packed with people enjoying themselves, including several bachelorette parties. This is a bit of a different atmosphere than we have here in New Hampshire, but the setup of the tasting room and space inside were designed to accommodate large groups. The tasting room was loud with chatter, but again it seemed to be because everyone was having such a good time. We were able to find space at the counter and taste several wines, including their Sheer Chardonnay, Pink Noir, Riesling, Seaport White, Triad Rose and Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc was a couple dollars more but ended up being worth it. We skipped the Estate Chardonnay, as it was oaked and not our favorite style of wine. The unoaked Sheer Chardonnay was crisp and fresh, though, with subtle fruit flavors. I really liked the unique blend of the Pink Noir, made from Pink Noir Blanc and riesling grapes. The riesling was our overall favorite as it was a bit on the drier side but still had some nice fruit notes, a tiny hint of sweetness and a nice smooth finish. We ended up purchasing a bottle to enjoy there on the deck, which made for a very nice afternoon. The weather was perfect and the view of the vineyard was very peaceful. It was clear to see why so many people had planned ahead and packed a picnic lunch and chairs or blankets. You do have to purchase tastings there, but the price includes a glass to take home. We were able to join the afternoon tour, which included an overview of the vineyards and a glimpse into their winemaking operations. While on the tour, we learned that the main grape grown on the property is chardonnay. (Now I know why the tasting room employee was a bit taken aback by the fact that we didn’t want to try their estate chardonnay). Vineyard owners Nick and Happy purchased the vineyard almost 30 years ago. At the time, a small, young vineyard existed. Unfortunately, during the first year, a

frost killed almost all of the primary vine shoots and fruit clusters. They learned quickly that Mother Nature always wins. The couple, now in their 70s, still lives on the property and is very hands-on in the winery. I can only imagine how nice it must be to wake up and look out over your own vineyard every day. Mike McAndrew has been the winemaker at Stonington Vineyards since 1987. He has focused on “food-friendly European-style wines,” according to their website. The winery has grown slowly over time and now produces 5,000 to 7,000 cases per year. The bulk of their sales are in their tasting room (no surprise there with the crowds we saw). Their wines are also sold in a few area stores and served at area restaurants. At a wedding on Friday night, we tried two Jonathan Edwards Winery wines. I believe they were a red and white blend, but I was unable to find any additional information about them on their website. It could be that these wines are reserved for events. Interestingly enough, this winery’s slogan is “New England charm. Napa style.” I enjoyed the wines that night but ultimately decided I wanted to visit Stonington Vineyards instead. I heard that the winery was nice, though. Another nearby winery, Saltwater Farm, requires reservations on Saturdays due to their full event calendar. These wineries are just two stops along the Connecticut Wine Trail, which has 25 stops and wineries all over the state. Had we had more time, we could have visited more.

Read, drink and be merry Talk books at Hampton wine and cheese shop

By Ashlyn Daniel-Nuboer

Looking to spice up your fall reading? Baron Forester, a wine and cheese shop in Hampton, is starting a new six-week book club series, and owners Julie and Sean Baker promise it won’t be your ordinary book club. The wine and cheese shop will feature what it does best — wine and cheese and homemade desserts — along with some compelling book talk. “We thought it would be fun to do something a little more engaging,” Julie Baker said. “One of my friends who is a sommelier had this book that was about how the French had saved the grapes from the Germans in an invasion during World War II, and we were chitchatting about how fun it would be to talk about the book while drinking wine.” Not only does Baker love a great glass of wine, she also loves baking. Book club members will get to enjoy Baker’s Frenchinspired homemade treats, along with French cheeses and different wines each week based on the regions in which the book takes place. The club will also differ from most clubs in that it’s only going to feature one book: Donald and Petie Kladstrup’s Wine and War.

Each week, a few chapters will be assigned to read before the group’s next meeting. (Don’t worry, there will be no judgment if you don’t finish your assigned chapters.) This book club is meant to be fun, casual and relaxing, and it’s a good excuse to get out of the house, meet new people and try new foods and wines. Although the wine selections have not be finalized, Julie Baker had a few ideas. “I have a feeling we are going to start with Chateau Tuilerie Pages, which is a blue Bordeaux. It’s a blend. It’s sauvignon blanc with semillion. It’s just like summer in a bottle,” she said. “It will sort of be the wrap-up of summer and the introduction to fall.” As the weather begins to cool, Baker said, group members can expect more of a red wine selection along with some German wines mixed in amongst the French. The six-week book and wine club membership costs $175, which includes the book, wine, cheese and desserts. The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 7, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Baron Forrester on 446 Lafayette Road in Hampton, N.H. Preregistration is required as the book club is limited to 12 members. Call 603-9624049 or visit for more information.

Who Cooked Adam Smith’s Dinner? by Katrine Marcal (Pegasus Books, 197 pages)

Most everyone with a college diploma knows who Adam Smith is: the Scottish philosopher whose theories of self-interested economics were published the same year as the Declaration of Independence. A society runs best, Smith believed, when individuals are allowed to pursue their own desires, their cumulative efforts aided by an “invisible hand,” creating the well-oiled machine that is the free market. The book detailing all this, The Wealth of Nations, made Smith a name; less so, his mother. Swedish journalist Katrine Marcal explains why in Who Cooked Adam Smith’s Dinner?, a tart, sophomoric analysis of how the market (and economists) have failed women, Hers is a provocative question of which Socrates would have approved; merely asking it, and waiting for the answer (Bueller? Bueller?) succinctly accomplishes the goal of three waves of feminist literature. Point made, and no trees had to die. Nobody knows who cooked Adam Smith’s dinner, but, this being the 18th century, we know it wasn’t him, and there was no Blue Apron to deliver. But Marcal is not content to provide the damning answer and be done with the matter; she eviscerates a forest to rehash Friedan-era arguments about why women’s work should be valued. The reasoning is sound; it’s just a tad tired. “They say that Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did — except that she did it backwards and in high heels. And that’s what women continue to do. Woman has entered the job market but man has not entered the home to the same extent. Our ideas about the boundaries between work and family life haven’t fundamentally changed,” Marcal writes. And about Smith’s dinner: It was his mother who lit the fire, plucked the chicken, washed the pot, darned the socks, deep into adulthood. “Adam Smith never married. The father of economics lived with his mother for most of his life,” Marcal writes. “For the butcher, the baker and the brewer to be able to go to work, at the time Adam Smith was writing, their wives, mothers or sisters had to spend hour after hour, day after day, minding the children, cleaning the house, cooking the food, washing the clothes, drying tears and squabbling with neighbors. However you look at the market, it is always built on another economy. An economy that we rarely discuss.” This may have been true in the 1950s, when magazine editors were telling Betty Friedan no one wanted to read her silly

article about depressed housewives, but it’s no longer true today. The problem of unpaid “women’s work” enabling the careers of men is a much-beaten horse, recycled as regularly as newsprint. (Last year’s flurry of Mother’s Day stories that calculate the economic worth of a stay-at-home mom put her missing income at about $119,000.) Marcal, an editorial writer for a Swedish newspaper called Aftonbladet, specializes in economics and feminism, and her book is much like a subpar editorial on those topics: long on pith, short on substance. She’s well-read and passionate, but comes across more as Simba than Mufasa, a problem with anyone newly outraged at an old injustice. (Wait — how sexist to mention Lion Kings — who killed Simba’s supper, anyway?) But Marcal doesn’t seem angry just at a sexist system, but at economists in general (at one point, she likens them to Etruscan soothsayers who would cut a sheep’s liver into 16 parts and read the future through the patterns) and the free market specifically. She dislikes not only its disdain for the work of running a family, but for the way it has infiltrated all parts of life, from our language to leisure time. Another famous economist, John Maynard Keynes, predicted a future in which widespread affluence would allow everyone to retire, pursue art and gaze at flowers. Instead, the maw of the market, ever open, consumes all and creates appetites that can’t be satisfied. It has, Marcal believes, caused a fundamental change in what it means to be human, propagating a “fantasy of self-sufficiency” not unlike Lennart Nilsson’s famous LIFE magazine photos of a fetus unconnected to its mother. (Not-so-fun fact: some of the embryos in Nilsson’s awe-inspiring book of photographs, A Child is Born, were actually dead; even worse, aborted.) Marcal’s ultimate message, besides the ills of capitalism, is for a kinder, gentler theory of economics, one that does not exploit fear and greed but helps us rise above it, one that puts others’ needs above competition. Instead of an invisible hand, a visible stroke. “The purpose of this journey could change. We could go from trying to own the world to trying to feel at home in it,” she writes. “And here’s the difference. To own is to possess. To wrap your hands around a dead thing and say, ‘This is mine.’ When you feel at home, you never need to say that this is mine. Because you know that it isn’t.” Then, finally, she tells the story of Adam Smith’s mother, ironically reducing her life to nine paragraphs.

Full flower Low Lily comes to Portsmouth Book & Bar By Michael Witthaus

For many years, mandolinist Flynn Cohen and singer-guitarist Liz Simmons formed the core of Annalivia. The couple welcomed a variety of fiddle players and the occasional upright bassist to round out their rustic, “roots and branch” folk bluegrass sound. In 2014, Lissa Schneckenburger became a member, and the era of itinerant fiddlers ended. Schneckenburger and Cohen knew each other well, having played together in fiddle supergroup Halali. She and Simmons are also close friends, dating back several years. When they began playing together, the chemistry was obvious, as was an evolution that demanded a new name for the musical journey ahead. And so Low Lily was born. “We felt like it was almost a new band,” Simmons said recently. “We had really gotten to a point where we had a more cohesive music vision. We wanted to rechristen the band and kind of restart in a way as a fresh project, but we think of it as growing directly out of Annalivia.” Crooked Still veteran Corey DiMario often joins the trio on upright bass. DiMario and Schneckenburger are married, as are Simmons and Cohen — a double couple quartet. He accompanies them at bigger Low Lily When: Saturday, Sept. 3, at 9 p.m. Where: Portsmouth Book & Bar, 40 Pleasant St., Portsmouth Tickets: $10. See

shows — summer festivals and the like — and won’t be on hand for an upcoming show at Portsmouth Book & Bar. “We’re all friends so it’s awesome to travel together,” Simmons said. “So far we’re getting along.” The family factor is even more evident on the group’s eponymous 2015 debut album. Along with DiMario, Liz’s father, Fred Simmons, was recruited for the record. The elder Simmons, a member of Folksoul Band, plays three-part trombone on “Girl’s Not Mine.” Schneckenburger wrote the

melancholy ballad as her version of Rick Springfield’s hit “Jessie’s Girl.” The latter is explained by the fact that the three band members are all MTV generation kids that remain influenced by the era’s music. Though Low Lily isn’t covering “Safety Dance,” the group does a gorgeous version of Dire Straits’ “Brothers In Arms” in its sets. “Flynn grew up in the early ’80s, whereas Lissa and I grew up in the late 80s,” Simmons said. “There is a little age gap there, but plenty of ’80s songs — we enjoy them.”

It’s the originals that stand out in the sixsong EP. Cohen sings lead on “All Roads Lead to You,” a ballad infused with traditional Irish elements that was co-written with Aram Sinnreich. The Simmons original “Adventurer” features lush harmonies wrapped around Simmons’ lead vocal. Simmons’ singing recalls Alison Krauss with a touch of Kate Rusby, one of her musical heroes. Schneckenburger’s fiddle runs stitched around “Adventurer” are both subtle and breathtaking in their complexity, with Cohen’s mandolin rising to solo with equal precision. “Fly so high you can’t come down,” Simmons sings, “from the top of the sky you can’t see ground.” The song perfectly encapsulates Low Lily’s sound. A version of “House Carpenter” is uniquely bold. Schneckenburger’s soaring fiddle runs raise the ante of the traditional favorite, which has been covered by everyone from Pentangle to Nickel Creek. Conversely, the group moves seamlessly from past to present. There aren’t many folk bands whipping out Nelly songs, but they have a take of the hip-hop singer’s 2004 hit “Nobody Knows.” Coupled with handclaps, harmony and DiMario thumping his bass in jazz-infused rhythm, it’s totally winning. “We do a handful of covers … and we have moved into more songwriting,” Simmons said. “We still throw in two or three big ballads in a show like ‘False Sir John,’ and I just reworked ‘Willy Moore,’ which is another old American ballad that was transplanted from England. We are kind of mixing it up in that way, but we work really hard to keep it all sounding fresh and smooth and cohesive.”

Wait, what?

(1) Investigators revealed in July that an off-duty Aurora, Colorado, sheriff’s deputy had justifiably fired his gun to resist a parking lot mugging and that, furthermore, one of the bullets from Deputy Jose Marquez’s gun had gone straight into the barrel of one of the handguns pointed at him. The investigators called the shot “one in a billion.” (2) Matthew Lavin, 39, drew internet acclaim in July after he was gored through his left thigh while “running with the bulls” in the annual spectacle in Pamplona, Spain. Interviewed in his hospital bed by Madrid’s The Local, he called it “the best time ever” and said he looked forward to another run next year.
