A Day to Learn about Wampanoag Culture

This Wednesday, August 10, you can learn to make traditional crafts and toys with Wampanoag artisans, examine the tools and objects that were used in daily Wampanoag life, and learn about this native culture and people by asking questions and engaging with members of the Wampanoag tribe. The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is partnering with Darius Coombs of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe to host a Wampanoag Immersion Experience day from 11 am to 4 pm at Children’s Beach, 15 Harborview Way. This program is family-friendly and free for all attendees. The program will conclude with an immersive performance showcasing music and dances that have been part of Wampanoag tradition for hundreds of years – guests are highly encouraged to participate. This program is a continuation of the 2021 “Making a Mishoon” project with Coombs, who constructed a mishoon specifically for the NHA. A special inaugural launch of this traditional dugout canoe crafted with fire into Nantucket Harbor will take place during the program. Coombs will also talk about the process of building the dugout canoe from start to finish. “We are excited to have this program come together for our island community and visitors to experience and learn how important the Wampanoag people and culture are to Nantucket. Working with Darius Coombs and his family over the years on several programs has been an exceptional educational experience for our staff and anyone who attends, so we are so fortunate to welcome them to the island once again,” says Mary Emery Lacoursiere, NHA Peter M. and Bonnie J. Sacerdote Chair of Education and Community Relations. The NHA’s mission is to preserve and interpret the history of Nantucket through its programs, collections, and properties, in order to promote the island’s significance and foster an appreciation of it among all audiences. Learn more about the NHA’s summer programs, museums, historic sites, and events by visiting NHA.org.

How to Make an Island House Your Home

Owning a home on Nantucket is a sign to many that they have truly “made” it. But the real work begins after the purchase. An island dwelling can be an oasis, an escape from the hectic pace of American life. But how do you find your unique voice and personality to your new house your new home? Inspiration comes to our island this week with the Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) event Nantucket by Design this week, through August 6. A major summer fundraiser for the NHA, these events celebrate the best in creative design with engaging lectures, unique discussions, and fun gatherings, with a theme of Celebration of Home. Now in its seventh year, Nantucket by Design celebrates the island's unique influence on American design, delivering an exclusive experience and raising money for the NHA to continue its commitment to steward and preserve the heritage of Nantucket. This year’s events will offer curated keynote and panel discussions, exclusive cocktail parties, an online silent auction, and collaborative design work of New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) and Kean University – Michael Graves College students. Participants will also enjoy the continued partnership with The Nantucket Summer Antiques Show for a Preview Party August 4. Exciting new additions to the line-up include a Fashion Show and master class breakout sessions, offered in intimate settings, covering floral design, entertaining, and decorative arts. “For the past two years, as we’ve all been tethered to our homes, our appreciation of where and how we live has grown exponentially. This year, we celebrate not only how our homes offer us comfort and security but allow us to express our personal style and passions with others through our decor, gardens, and entertaining,” commented Stacey Bewkes and Olivia Charney, chairs of Nantucket by Design 2022. This year’s award-winning line-up of interior designers, tastemakers, and artisans include Alex Papachristidis, Tara Guerard, Keith Robinson, Christopher Spitzmiller, and Ashley Whittaker. continued on page 17

The Sun Will Still Set by Robert P. Barsanti

In an idle corner of Massachusetts, Route Two dips along the Connecticut River for a moment, rises to a point in Turner’s Falls, pauses at a flashing red light, than just as fast swoops past Greenfield and out into the the hills of the Berkshires. At the light, a gas station has spread across one corner, a snow mobile dealership goes out of business on another, and a Polish food truck opens on the weekend. On the last quarter, a growth of trees spreads along the high bank of a river forested until Route Two turns into Greenfield. I spent an afternoon amid all of those trees and rocks. Now, in the familiar memory, the sandy field in the midst of the alders and the birch had been a sand excavation company and may have become a WalMart to relieve the bargain shoppers of the long drive to Northampton or to Bennington. Three hundred and fifty years ago, it had been a massive fishing camp that attracted Native Americans from as far away as the Great Lakes. Salmon and Shad swam up the river from the Atlantic, and then leapt up the rocks. The fishermen waited with weirs, nets, and spears. The fish would be cleaned, dried, and packed away. The fishermen had been working the falls for ten thousand years. They had fallen and died in this area for as long, and had been buried high up on the riverbank. The Pocumtuck Indians have long since decamped from Great Falls. Captain Turner led a slaughter of the camp during King Phillip’s War, and was, for his efforts, rewarded with death that same evening. His name, for the moment, memorializes a sleepy and fading community. For the Native, the dead were solemnized, buried, and left along the bluff. Later, a sand and gravel company moved into the empty field, dug it up, and spread the rock and remains as the “bed” for Route Two. After a squabble of anger, politics, and money, the bluff over the Connecticut was returned to the Nipmuc tribe; they own the trees and rock just beside the rolling trucks and Volvo’s on Route 2, up in Turner’s Falls. I was led through the old fort that the Nipmuc had built on top of the bluff. Lumps from the walls and holes from the looters remain. Instead, however, aspens, birch, and pine had grown throughout the meeting rooms, defensive fortifications, and food stores. Near the north wall, my guide tried to show us a stone turtle, ascontinued on page 22

A Very Different Type of Farming by Dr. Sarah Treanor Bois, PhD

Director of Research & Education at the Linda Loring Nature Foundation Aphids may be the bane of existence for some gardeners. However, these tiny sap-sucking insects are a diverse group with some pretty interesting habits. Aphids are very common insects and are found on many plants in yards and gardens. In most cases they cause little or no damage to the health of plants. There are more than 1,200 species in North America. While some are generalists, most species of aphids are monophagous or feed on just a few species of closely related plants. If you have milkweed (any species) in your yard, you may notice some small, orange residents towards the top of the steps of milkweed. These are aphids causing ire to many trying to maintain milkweed populations in the name of monarch conservation. Milkweed is named for the milky sap inside the plant. The sap is toxic to most insects and is a deterrent for herbivores. Many know the story of monarchs—that the caterpillars are one of the few insects that can digest milkweed leaves and sequester the toxin transferring the toxic defense mechanism to their bodies. But this story is less about monarchs and more about the aphids. Aphids are another insect that has evolved the ability to access the nutrients within the milkweed plant without the effects of the toxicity. Aphids feed by directly tapping into the phloem of the plant stem sucking up the sugars. There are lots of different species of aphids. On our milkweed plants, we have oleander aphids (sometimes called milkweed aphids). The tiny, orange aphids are non-native, most likely originating in the Mediterranean region where it's principal host plant, oleander, grows. The aphid’s ability to extract nutrients from the milkweed without the effect of the toxicity can be useful. Aphid poop from almost any plant is actually a hot

No one is innocent in Dial M for Murder. This drawing room thriller that is currently on stage at White Heron Theatre is excellent on many levels. The strong, snappy dialog is intelligent and engaging, and the talented cast delivers it well. Director Mark Shanahan’s vision pulls it all together, from his ideal casting choices to the perfect timing and spot-on blocking essential for this intricate, single-set, dialog-heavy play to succeed. And succeed it does!

Transitioning to Organic

photo by Keegan Bartlett

Over the last fifteen years, 6th generation farmer/owner, Dave Bartlett, has been transitioning every aspect of Bartlett’s Farm’s field-grown produce to Certified Organic. I t has been a long and arduous process, with endless lists of requirements, years of transitioning the fields away from conventional approaches, buffer zones, long inspections, and a mountain of paper work. Bartlett’s journey of becoming fully certified organic still has a ways to go, continued on page 11

but completion is finally in sight. Currently, the vast majority of Bartlett’s field production is already Certified Organic; some is in the transitioning process; and a small percentage still requires conventional methods. One of the last crops to complete the process and become certified organic is our sweet corn. The organic crops of corn start in the greenhouse: cornstalks were germinated in the greenhouse and transplanted into the field after a few weeks. This is a process Bartlett’s does with most crops, but has not done with corn since at least 2002. The corn was transplanted on black plastic and drip tape, a similar process as Bartlett’s field tomatoes and lettuce: black plastic helps with weed control, and drip irrigation injects the exact amount of water and nutrients explicitly where needed. This process gives the farmers more control over the plant’s environment, increasing viability: the goal of any good agricultural operation. Transitioning a fan favorite to certified organic is still a very a daunting task as ditching conventional methods can initially cause serious headaches with pest management and plant fertility. Dave tells us the crop’s vigor, fertility, and yields could not be stronger; a welcome sign of what is in store for the near future. Dave says the goal is to push all farm grown corn to certified organic and to move as close to 100% certified organic production as our island environment will allow. It will be at least three more years before this process can be completed. It has been a long and painstaking process, but one well worth the effort. Bartlett’s Farm is Nantucket Island’s oldest and largest family-owned farm. Known especially for farm-grown corn and tomatoes, Bartlett’s Farm is a multifaceted family operation with more than 100 acres of open fields for growing produce and flowers, and in the last 10 years has transitioned more than 30 acres to Certified Organic. Their Garden Center is a must visit, with everything you need create and maintain your garden Inside the Market, Bartlett’s Farm kitchen offers prepared foods to take to the beach, home to the family, or to enjoy at their outdoor picnic area. In the morning, savor take-out breakfast sandwiches, muffins and pastries, coffee, tea. For lunch, you can order sandwiches, lobster rolls, clam chowder, and salads. Nightly dinner specials add to those items: roasted chicken dinner, vegetable curry, and prime rib dinner, depending on the night and the season. Bartlett’s has a fully stocked grocery store with specialty pastas, snacks, olive oils, organic snacks, quality meats, artisanal cheeses, and dairy, along with a carefully curated selection of sustainable and organic wines, craft beers, and ciders.

The tense plot follows retired tennis pro Tony Wendice as he connives to have his wealthy wife, Margot, murdered for her money. Tony previously discovered Margot had an affair with famous American crime writer Mark Halliday, who is visiting the couple in London, and his nefarious plan exploits Margot’s fear that her infidelity will be discovered. Anxious to keep his hands clean, Wendice blackmails an old college mate to commit the murder while he uses a boys' night out with Halliday as his alibi. But when Margot kills the killer, Tony must improvise. Back at White Heron Theatre for this production is Broadway and television actress Celia Keenan-Bolger, who won a Tony for her portrayal of Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird and whom audiences might recognize as Mrs. Bruce in HBO’s new series The Guilded Age. She is brilliant as the naive and nervous Margot Wendice, torn between her lover, Mark, and her husband, Tony, who, as she tells Mark, has changed from his vain and inattentive ways. Keenan-Bolger radiates confusion and hurt as her not-so-reformed husband’s devilish plot unfolds. Stage, film, and television actor Dan Domingues, returns to White Heron Theatre as the charming and ruthless Tony Wendice. He’s glorious as the deviously handsome, cold, calculating, manipulative husband: one of Hitchcock’s classic debonair villains. A woman seated behind me whispered to her companion “I KNOW that man”–I hope she meant the actor. And Domingues has mastered the perfect smirk and tones of irony for a character you love to hate. Kavin Panmeechao plays Margot’s American paramour, a novelist whose knowledge of the mechanics and motives of murder leads him to unraveling Tony’s scheme. He’s well-cast as the devoted lover who refuses to give up, even when Margot seems doomed. The true victim (or is he?) in the play is Captain Lesgate aka Charles Swann, the career criminal blackmailed by Tony into killing Margot. Played by the talented Mark Price, well-known on Broadway, with film and television credits as well. Price is fully believeable as the ne'er-do-well who is maneuvered into going along with Tony’s murderous plans. Isabel Keating, another Tony-award winning actress in this star-studded play continued on page 13

Coast Guard Certified Vessels Private Charters Up to 17 passengers is perfect as the acerbically witty Inspector Hubbard. The gender switch from the Hitchcock version works well, and, with her perfect timing and facial expressions, she plays up the humor without overdoing it. Her character finds the key to unwinding the twists of Tony’s plot and revealing the truth of the murder.

A Very Different Type of Farming

from page 8

commodity for other insects. Known as “honeydew” aphid excrement contains multiple sugars, but none of the toxicity for those feeding on milkweed. Who loves honeydew the most? Well, ants are the best at cornering the market on honeydew. Many species of ants actually do this. It’s a symbiotic relationship benefitting both species. For the ants, they “farm” the aphids. People use the term “aphid farming” to reference the behavior of the ants. Ants will work together to pick up the aphids and put them together on a plant, corralling the aphids into one area. This way it’s easier for the ants to collect the honeydew and also to protect them. So what do the aphids get out of this? They get protection. The ants are not eating the aphids, they are protecting them as a vital resource. The primary predator? Ladybugs. Lady bugs (or lady beetles) eat aphids, as many gardeners know. However, ants will gang up and attack ladybugs. There is evidence, too, that some ants will find and destroy ladybug eggs. Some ants even go so far as to build small shelters for the aphids or to keep root-feeding aphids inside their own nests. A few species of aphids have become so dependent on their ants that they won’t even excrete honeydew unless stimulated by an ant! Aphid-herding ants make sure aphids stay well-fed and safe. When the host plant is depleted of nutrients, the ants carry their aphids to a new food source. For some species of ants, they also bring the aphids back into their nests at night and for the winter. They use their antennae to “coax” the aphids into secreting the honeydew which the ants lap up. It’s been described like “milking a cow,” but really the ant caresses the aphid with it’s antennae to get the honeydew to come out. It may not be all good for the aphids. Aphids are almost always wingless, but certain environmental conditions will trigger them to develop wings. If the aphid population becomes too dense, or food sources decline, aphids can grow wings to fly to a new location. Ants, however, do not look favorably upon losing their food source. In some instances, ants have been known to bite the wings off of aphids to keep them in line. A recent study also showed that some ants can use semiochemicals to stop the aphids from developing wings and to impede their ability to walk away. continued on page 25

Celebrating Design from page 5

North Wharf and Easy Street has become a gathering place for people who celebrate design. It’s also become a place to celebrate life. Lately his garden patio has been used as the venue for small fundraisers, for a bridal shower, and even for a beautifully planned proposal (she said yes!). Reubin has hosted al fresco dinners for clients who have become friends. Friends who love to shop together contact him for showings in his downtown oasis: refreshing libations, nature, and gems, it seems, go very well together for an afternoon of shopping.

R. Simantov’s garden patio was recently the venue for a proposal catered by @ackpicnics

The Sun Will Still Set from page 7

sembled thousands of years previous. If you squinted with your historical memory, and peeled away a hundred years of moss, you could see the stone turtle squatting at the foot of a ten foot palisade fence, commanding the bend and falls of the Connecticut River. But not now. That vision was lost to the trees. Were the Wampanoags to arise from their graves on Nantucket, they too would be surprised by the trees. For most of the island’s existence, island grown wood was sparse. Melville wrote that “splinters were as rare as chips of the True Cross.” If you prowled through the upper harbor, you could find some old pine stumps in the salt water or left on Shawkemo, but the island is remarkably stump free…or ancient stump free. Today, if I am honest and not looking to whine, the greatest changes on Nantucket in my time are trees. Where sheep grazed and birds once nested on the ground, all sorts of trees stretch skyward. Their roots dig into the bones of the ancestors and their branches block the sun and wind. In my time, the trees have grown through Miacomet, thickened the Milestone and Polpis Roads, and encased the Madaket Road. Sometime, in the far off, storm tossed future, our island may be known for its tenacious roots and stubborn oaks. Time flows all around us, in its syrupy ooze. Just as we complain about the traffic on Old South Road, so did the Pocumtuck whine about the strangers showing up and catching all the salmon. Both complaints blow through the leaves on the trees (And feed our new friends, the squirrels). They will replace the lumberjacks and out live us all.

August 4-10, 2022

We don’t matter in the business of trees. The aspens and the birches of Turner’s Falls will attest that the ancient Pocumtuck make an excellent lunch for their roots. On-island, the scrub oak feed on the wisdom of the Quakers. Where the time of trees stretches out, our time is brief. Every visit to Nantucket could be our last one; not because Hurricane Henry is going to scour the sand bar flat, but because time will slip us under the highway in the wink of an eye. Tomorrow the giant elm on Surfside Road will remain, but I may not. We are here for a good time, not a long time. In the midst of a recent heat wave, when the trees unfurled their leaves to the sun, I drove out to Madaket. In July, we are thick on the island. A line of a hundred or so walked up the bike path, past the restaurant, to the bluff over the beach. The elders had rigged a staircase down to the beach, where the waves rolled in and the fishermen cast for something without a fin and a wide mouth. Everyone else who was not performing sat on towels and chairs, then watched an orange sun sink over Tuckernuck. It’s the same sunset. Time changes homes, fishing camps, enemies, and even trees. But the astronomical clock continues to tick through the day and along the horizon. Some time in January, earlier in the evening of course, the same sun will perform the same closing routine as it did in July. The moment will not be greeted with white wine and beer, but it will still happen. Tick tock, the trees whisper. Tick, tock. On this day, the families were together. They were arrayed on towels, lubricated with wine, fed with crackers, and alive at the edge of the continent. The water rolled, the sky glowed and that mundane moment, when burned gold again, held us all up into a moment when we were all together. After the sun squashed and disappeared, the visitors on the beach applauded.

Celebrating Design

meets with clients one-on-one get to know them and to help them define what they seek. He guides them instead of dictating, helping them to understand possibilities. “The client is the designer,” Reubin explained, “we add to the completion of their vision.” To illustrate, he brought out some pieces he is in the final stages of creating for a mother and daughter: butterflies that, when finished, will fit together seamlessly to be worn as one or separated when the daughter is old enough to wear hers. Sculpted in gold and silver, inset with specially cut gems and black opals, they’re engineered to flutter gently with movement. Reubin was clearly excited to show his client the finished design. “I love this: working with clients and making them something that will be in their family for generations.” We left the garden and looked inside the shop where his gorgeous jewelry collections are surrounded by beautiful murals by island artist Zoe Markham. Markham also paints the shells on which some of R. Simantov’s jewelry is displayed. A patron of arts in addition to jewelry, Reubin likes to help talented young Nantucket artists like Markham, and like Kelley Jepson, who transforms natural found materials in to wildlife sculptures like the ones adorning the walls along Simantov’s garden patio. The ambiance at R. Simantov, the hospitality, the exceptional art and design: it all combines to celebrate life, and to make shopping an extraordinary experience to be shared.

from page 21

As I entered the low fence that barely contains the colorful plantings in the garden at R. Simantov on a recent sun-dappled island morning, it was Ella who first greeted me. Reubin’s charming 7-month-old Labradoodle Havanese puppy, her paws on the top of the fence, looked at me with bright eyes and gave a calm “hello” (I’m sure she smiled). After the initial hospitality, she was happy to curl up nearby as Reubin chatted with me about jewelry, design, and his love of both. This year, he said, rings and earrings have been popular, and he is noticing more people interested in jewelry with gems. “What is blowing my mind is that my clients this season are younger, but they have the same level of sophistication and appreciation of the artistry of the jewelry designs...They are not just after bling.” Over the years, Reubin has forged relationships internationally with suppliers and highly skilled craftspeople. His team seeks out and buys extraordinary stones, rough cut, which are then cut and shaped to fit his designs, which are both innovative and classically timeless. It’s often the gemstone that inspires the design, he explained. His many connections keep him apprised of what is coming out of the mines. This means that Reubin is able to obtain the unusual: exceptionally saturated blue aquamarines, Burmese pigeon blood rubies with amazing depth, rare colors of tourmaline—peach, pistachio, orange, honey, blue, and more. R. Simantov has an intuitive sense of design: he

A Very Different Type of Farming from page 18

Observing some of our milkweed around my office this week, we found lots of evidence of aphids on some, but not all, milkweed plants. We also found ants and ladybugs in the patch. We didn’t see the full drama play out, but all the characters were there. Our milkweed are healthy, though, with some tiny monarch caterpillars feasting away. For those of you who don’t want to see all of the aphids and worry about plant damage, please don’t use insecticides. They are not species-specific and so will affect all the other insects you want to see in your garden. If the aphid populations become too dense, use your fingers to squish the aphids. Some people have described using forceful water to spray aphids off, however, for milkweed, I don’t recommend using high pressure water to remove the aphids as this could also remove any monarch caterpillars that are present on the plant. Here is a video explaining the ant-aphid symbiosis with some pretty cool images: youtube.com/watch?v=frPQ0EUlIMY Or you can check out your own milkweed plants and see if you can find some aphid farming yourself.

Leave only footprints...

Nantucket has some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world. Please respect Nantucket’s fragile environment and the beauty of our island. Clean up your litter, respect private property, and use only designated entry points. In areas where dune reclaimation is taking place, please do not cross the rope or fence barriers protecting the dunes.

BEACH SAFETY •Learn to swim. If you can’t swim an overhead stroke for at least 15 minutes you should not be in the ocean. •Never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy, and swim near a lifeguard whenever possible. •Stay out of the “surf zone” where the waves break at the shoreline. Waves are at their greatest force here, and even a small wave can lift you up and throw you headfirst into the sand. •Never run from the beach into the water and dive headfirst into the waves. Sandbars that cannot be seen from the surface may be present and/or the water may be too shallow. •Don’t jump or dive into the water from a pier or rock jetty. From a pier or jetty, water appears much deeper than it really is. What looks like 10 or 20 feet of water may only be 2 to 3 feet deep. Diving in could be fatal. The same applies for jumping headfirst into the ocean or a wave from a surfboard – don’t do it! It’s not a risk worth taking. •If you are body surfing or boogie boarding, always keep your arms out in front of you to protect your head and neck. •A rip current will pull you away from the shore, but it will not pull you under. If you’re caught in a rip current, do not swim toward the shore! Instead, swim parallel to the shore, until you’re out of the rip current. Then, swim in to shore. •Never drink alcohol or use drugs at the beach. It clouds your ability to make wise decisions, and that could be fatal! •Take direction from lifeguards at all times.
