FREE 17 State Street Eases Local's Fears of Losing Fowle's July 11 - 17, 2012 • Vol. 8, No. 36

By Stewart Lytle, Reporter ––––––––––––––––– NEWBURYPORT – Moving to Newburyport to open 17 State Street, a new restaurant downtown here, and closing her Cathy's Country Kitchen in Rowley after 18 years have taken a toll on Cathy Moulton. Her niece, Erinn Parsons, came into the small office in the back of the new 80-seat restaurant one day last week with an important question for Moulton. “Can I get you some lunch? You haven't eaten.” Asked if it was part of her job to make sure her aunt eats, Parsons said yes, it was part of every staff member's job. Moulton, who often forgets to eat Photo by Stewart Lytle and has lost weight, has renovated Cathy Moulton at the counter in her new 17 State Street restaurant. the 3,000 square feet of space once

occupied by the Fowle's newsstand and its accompanying sofa fountain and cafe. She opened the new retrolooking restaurant three weeks ago. “It has been going very well,” she said. “We have been welcomed very graceously.” She said old customers from Rowley, curious tourists, a lot of new people and some locals have come in to check out the new restaurant. That welcome was not always assured. There was considerable angst – she calls it controversy – over a new owner taking over the old Fowle's News space, which had been an institution operating on State Street since 1903. Moulton, who was raised on Plum Island as the eldest of five Continued on page 3

Pastor Has Inspiration in Bringing Church Service to the Beach

SALISBURY BEACH – Dr. Bruce Boria, pastor of the large Bethany Church in Greenland, NH, was not so sure he had the energy or the strength to bring his Christian ministry to the people of Salisbury Beach. “I was tired. I knew it was going to be a lot of work,” he thought as he drove away from the Blue Ocean Music Hall here. He had been meeting with local people, including a parishioner, Tom Saab, a local real estate investor, and with music hall executives about holding five church services on Sunday mornings this month and next at the music hall. The services here would be in addition to his ministry to about 2,000 people who come to Bethany Church on Sundays and to his

The two-story columned building housed the Ten's Show Club, an adult entertainment bar, about 100 yards from the music hall. He thought about how Jesus took his ministry to the sinners. And he thought, if the people who own that club can make it happen at the beach, “who am I not to try?” Boria said his mission is to take the Christian gospel to the people of New England. His ministry, since 2003 at Bethany Church, has attracted people from throughout Photo by Stewart Lytle New Hampshire and the North From left are Christine and Katherine Connell, Karyn Green, Scott Shore of Massachusetts.

Support to Relocate the Amesbury Department of Public Works

To the Editor:

We are writing to support the bond bill to relocate the Department of Public Works facility from Water St. to 39 Hunt Road. This project is vital to the future economic growth of Amesbury and will contribute significantly to improving the quality of life in the City, creating jobs and broadening the tax base. It is consistent with the long term growth strategy of Amesbury, defined in the Master Plan, to locate new development in the city center near public and private amenities, including transportation. The new development encouraged by this move will more than pay for the cost of the project. Thanks to the City Council, the Mayor and Rob Desmarais for their hard work on revisiting this project and coming up with a less costly but equally desirable alternative. The relocation of the DPW is critical to the continued advancement of other projects in the Lower Millyard. The Transportation Center is nearly complete. The Amesbury Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Amesbury Carriage Museum, have proposed a museum, visitors' center and artists' lofts for the building adjacent to the old DPW building. The City has proposed and is seeking outside funding for a park on the land adjacent to that at the corner of the Back and Powow Rivers. The City is also working to extend the Riverwalk from The Editor Main St. to Water St. The City is working to expand the parking garage, which will provide sorely needed parking for the downtown. The c/o The Town Common Carriage Mills building has a long term expansion plan, with a significant tenant to occupy a $3 million expansion. The Bartley land has 77 Wethersfield St. a mixed use development under proposal. The old mill buildings at 1-25 Oakland St. have enormous development potential. Funding for Rowley, MA 01969 or via e-mail to: these projects is contingent on the DPW relocation, and all will advance more quickly once the DPW is relocated. These projects will provide economic development of $50 million, and has the potential to add as much as $90 million to Amesbury's tax base over the next ten years. At the current tax rate, this results in $1.8 million in added tax revenue per year. The bond payments for the The Town Common deadline DPW project will be about $400,000. Even if the future development is less than half of the projected amount, the project is more than is 5pm Wednesday (except when a federal holiday necessitates an paid for by the increased revenues. This is a unique opportunity to take an underutilized part of Amesbury and create a completely new neighborhood. Amesbury desperately earlier deadline). needs to expand its tax base in order to remain viable into the future. This redevelopment will contribute significantly to the future stability The Town Common of Amesbury's tax base.

Pastor Has Inspiration in Bringing Church Service to the Beach

Continued from page 1

His goal, he said: “We want to raise the spiritual landscape of New England.” The New York-born pastor came to New Hampshire in large part because the state ranks 49th in church attendance. Massachusetts ranks a bit higher because of its strong Catholic churches, he said. In New England, churches have been failing for years with declining memberships. Some churches have been sold and turned into residences. Others are now restaurants. “We wanted to turn this restaurant (the Blue Ocean Music Hall) into a church,” said Karyn Green, the director of communications for the Bethany Church. Boria agreed. “We want to go where the people are,” he said. He hasn't had much trouble finding people at the beach. He and his team of volunteers are working the beach, the shops, the restaurants and bars in this popular

seaside community on Saturdays, inviting beachgoers to the first service last Sunday and urging them to join in worshipping Jesus between frolicking in the sand and surf, listening to concerts, watching the paddleboarding events, eating pizza and drinking beer. This weekend the beach will be crowded with the Surf Music & Brew Fest on the beach for the weekend. Surf rocker Donovan Frankenreiter, the Jimmy Buffett tribute band Changes in Latitudes and local favorite Dead Air Project will draw a crowd. The first-ever Surf Music & Brew Fest will happen on Saturday afternoon on the 8,000 square-foot ocean-front deck at SurfSide5, a few feet from the music hall. On Saturday night, hours before it turns into a church, the Blue Ocean Music Hall will feature Frankenreiter, a California-based singer/songwriter and pro surfer. Boria thinks he can compete.

children, said she wanted to honor the history of Fowle's in her new restaurant. She kept in place the iconic Fowle's sign on the front of the building, although it now also has a sign hanging from it identifying the new restaurant by its new name. Knowingt she would face skepticism, she deliberately did not paper over the windows during construction to allow the daily peepers to watch the changes unfolding inside. “I understand. A piece of history was going away,” she said. And having grown up in the area and gone to school in Newburyport, she knew that many locals fight hard to keep any bit of history in place. “But look at the décor. We have enhanced the space. We have made it nostalgic,” she said. There are framed photos of old Newburyport on the walls. The old soda fountain counter remained. She installed a new kitchen because the old Fowle's had a very small

kitchen. But she has not continued to sell newspapers and magazines because “there is really no business there.” Moulton was offered the space by Ann Lagasse, who heads Newburyport Development, which owns the building. Lagasse, who was looking to fill the space after the two previous tenants opted not to renew their lease, had eaten often at Cathy's in Rowley and thought her style of food would work well on State Street. The timing was perfect. Moulton had lost her lease for her popular breakfast and lunch place at Rowley Crossroads and was looking to move. “After 18 years, it was time,” she said. Opening the restaurant has created a lot of frantic days. “This one has actually been fairly calm,” she said. She hoped it would be a harbinger of things to come when the challenges will ease in opening a new restaurant and hiring new staff, including a “wonderful” new manager Heather Paterson, to blend with those employees who came

July 11 - 17, 01 WERE THEY THINKING? On Thursday, July 12 at 6:30 the Seabrook Library, in partnership with the NH Humanities Council, will present a timely program, The Founding Fathers: What Were They Thinking? In 1787 delegates gathered in Philadelphia to address a wide variety of crises facing the young United States of America and produced a charter for a new government. In modern times, competing political and legal claims are frequently based on what those intended. Mythology about the founders and their work at the 1787 Convention has obscured both fact and legitimate analysis of the events leading to the agreement called the Constitution. This program explores the cast of characters called “founders,” the problems they faced and the solutions they fashioned. The presenter is Richard A. Hesse, Professor Emeritus, UNH School of Law, who has published on a wide variety of legal and ethical topics. The program is free and open to the public, with light refreshments served. BEATLES TRIBUTE BAND TO PLAY AT CASTLE HILL New England’s premiere Beatles tribute band HELP! will perform at Castle Hill, 290 Argilla Road, Ipswich on Thursday, July 12th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Bring the family and a picnic and enjoy some of the best rock and roll tunes ever written. The gates will open at 5 p.m. for picnicking. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early. Space is limited and the gates will close once capacity is reached. Admission is at the gate only--$30/car or $20/car for members of The Trustees of Reservations. There is a 6 person per car maximum; each additional passenger will be charged $5. Motorcycles are $10 and walk-ins $5. Weather cancellations (if necessary) will be announced by 3:00 p.m. concertday. Visit or call 978.356.4351 for more details.

For the past couple of months, every dentist in the United States has had to deal (in some form or another) with the story on the front page of the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper entitled, “Dental X-rays Linked to Brain Tumors in Yale Study”. The story made national headlines, and why wouldn’t it with a title like that? The reporter did publish excerpts from a meeting with ADA (American Dental Association) spokesperson Matthew J. Messina, DDS to get the dental communities’ perspective; however that was published on page A-4. As Dr. Messina explained, “Like a courtroom trial, the prosecution went first. Page 1 included the first six paragraphs of the article. The ADA’s defense was well presented, but after the ‘jump’ to page A-4. It required that a person be committed enough to understanding the story, to be willing to actually open the paper and read the article to the end. And that is one of the problems that ‘we’ will always face as a profession.”

For the rest of us who don’t live in Cleveland, or read the Cleveland Plain Dealer on-line, we got our story from the national news media. All I heard was that dental x-rays cause brain tumors. As a consumer and someone concerned about my health it raised an eyebrow. As a dentist I knew there was more to the story. Here are the facts as presented by Dr. Messina: How common are the brain tumors? (Six per 100,000) How did the researchers find a link between dental x-rays and brain tumors? (They asked people with brain tumors to remember how many x-rays they had over their lifetime) Is there a problem with this type of study? (Yes, it'’ called “recall bias”) Are dental x-rays different today than they were even 10 years ago? (Yes, the amount of radiation in current dental radiography is dramatically less than in years past) What should patients do with this information? (Talk to their dentist about any concerns so that their dentist can give them accurate information and reassure them) While there is strong evidence that ionizing radiation may cause cancer, the question remains whether low doses lead to an increase in risk. Regarding dental x-rays, the effective dose is far below the yearly exposure received from natural background radiation. In the case of brain tumors, the cerebral

(brain) region is not even in the primary radiation field of most dental x-rays. This was not even considered in the study. Where do we go from here? If you are in the approximately 50% of the population that does not see a dentist on a regular basis, this information does not mean that much. If you are in the other 50% that understand that oral health means so much more than having your teeth cleaned or a tooth filled, I would recommend the ALARA rule (as low as reasonably achievable). Dental radiographs are a safe, essential and effective tool in identifying dental decay, gum disease, pathology, as well as monitoring proper growth and development. As a society it is my hope that we are willing to move past the skimming of all the information that is available to us and ask questions when things relate to us. We (dentists) as a profession will continue to work towards educating our patients and providing the safest, most effective care. Dr. St. Clair maintains a private dental practice in Rowley and Newburyport dedicated to health-centered family dentistry.
