Continuing a Seafaring Legacy During the peak of Nantucket’s whaling days it was a normal occurrence for island youth to head out to sea aboard a ship. Indeed, some might even say for the young men of Nantucket, it was expected. Slowly as the industry dwindled and whale oil was no longer in high demand, Nantucket’s seafaring young men traded their nautical miles for land-based industries and activities. Young men from Nantucket are no longer regaled as great mariners, but Egan Maritime is slowly changing that while also welcoming young women to the maritime world. Since 2014, Egan Maritime has sent a total of 59 local students out to sea aboard the Tall Ships Lynx and Fritha as part of the Sea of Opportunities Maritime Education Program. These sails, offered at no cost to the students and their families, are fully funded by the organization’s leaders and patrons. The sails are split into two groups: students who just completed middle school at a private or public island school and students from Nantucket High School. Middle school students partake in a weekend sail to Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, and back. High school students partake in a weeklong sail that takes them far beyond the Vineyard to Mystic Seaport, Connecticut, or a little closer to home to Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Aboard, they are expected to be learning members of the crew, working the sails, standing watch, and helping with the upkeep of the ship while also getting a rudimentary knowledge of Tall Ship sailing. When the students complete their sailing assignment, they are known as Egan Maritime’s Student Mariners. In addition to the hands-on educational component, these sails have also proven to be unique community building exercises. Egan Maritime’s Manager of Maritime Education Evan Schwanfelder noted: “The students begin their journey as outsiders and really begin to integrate while under sail. Through the process you see growth. They begin to adapt, to expand their comfort levels, and they become integral members of the crew and each other’s ex-

Be Surprised by Science They say the world is your classroom, so let the island of Nantucket feed your brain all summer long. Thanks in part to a generous grant from the Nantucket Community Foundation’s ReMain Nantucket Fund, the Maria Mitchell Association is sending a Pop Up Science cart around the island all summer long. Science can pop-up anywhere to provide family oriented science experiments every weekday, unless it’s raining. Join in on the fun with handson demonstrations and experiments on topics like inertia, using solar energy, learning about birds, exploring magnetism, homemade lava lamps, and more. See birds from the MMA’s Collection and compete in paper airplane contests. Tuesdays there will be a live action aquarium touch tank. Not only will you learn and have fun, but there are prizes to win as well. Cart locations will keep you guessing throughout the week as Pop Up Science makes it’s way around town. It will usually appear in the afternoon, but once in a while you might find the cart while getting your morning cup. It might be a little more “British” than usual one day, and on another you might find the cart while shopping for outdoor gear, or while searching for the perfect summer novel in the same place where Maria Mitchell was the first librarian. Keep your eyes peeled for the cart and stop by to watch the show and learn something new about science. In the Fall of 1847, Maria Mitchell was scanning the sky with her family’s telescope. She discovered a comet that night, and went on to live a life and pave a path worthy of recognition. Founded in 1902, the Maria Mitchell Association has worked for more than a century to preserve the legacy of Nantucket’s daughter and native astronomer, naturalist, librarian, and educator: Maria Mitchell. The Maria Mitchell Association operates two observatories, a natural science museum, an aquarium, a research center, and preserves her historic birthplace on Nantucket. A wide variety of science and historyrelated programming is offered throughout the year for people of all ages.

She Left Us Her Song

2-HOUR GUIDED WILDERNESS HIKES • • • •

by Robert P. Barsanti Peace comes at a premium in August. It hides in the shadows and corners, away from the linen and the hydrangea. It steps back from the traffic, the shoppers, and the selfies, and settles itself on hard and varnished wood in St. Mary’s. Inside, the air did not particularly cool you and the walls did not insulate you from the Suburbans and the Yukons passing outside. I was just separated, apart from the ebb and flow of Federal Street. I knelt for a departed friend. We have many holy spaces on Nantucket. The woods and moors have been well documented by poets and painters. The Quakers have a silent old schoolhouse, tucked away on Fair Street, that is as well-appointed as a broom closet. Across the street, St. Paul’s boasts dark woods and glittering Tiffany windows. Two other churches, within easy walking distance, have towers that reach to heaven and meeting rooms of such grace and art that they would lift the congregation there. St. Mary’s remains close to the ground with the builders, waiters, painters, and workers of the island. I have been a long time away from the faith of my parents, and I had no desire to find my way back to the Holy Mother Church. However, faith has its own tune. You can’t spend much time in a church and not think of all of the people who have sat, stood, and knelt there. Their names grace the walls of St. Mary’s: Egan, Mooney, Terry, O’Neill. Not whalers, not captains, not owners, but people with two feet on the ground, eyes to see around them, and voices to sing. My troubles were their troubles, my blessings were their blessings, and my song was their song. In almost every service, Christian or otherwise, the worshipers repeat their creed. It doesn’t particularly matter what the creed says—let the theologians argue about comma placement—but it matters that everyone says continued on page 25

NANTUCKET

by Dr. Sarah Treanor Bois Nantucket has been a hotspot of global transport since the whaling days of the 18th and 19th centuries. At a time when most people never ventured further than a few miles from their hometown, Nantucketers traveled the world and brought the world back with them. The Nantucket Whaling Museum is full of artifacts from the far reaches of the globe, and our Main Street is lined with cobblestones that may or may not have been ship ballast from afar. It is no wonder that more than souvenirs and spices were transported back to the island. Plants, animals, and insects have been moved around the globe by humans for centuries. Some were transported intentionally for soil stabilization, medical, and horticultural purposes, but many more were transported by accident. They were hitchhikers in potting soil, clothing, and shipping containers. With plants in mind, even with all of this moving over hundreds of years, only a few species are able to grow in the new environments they find themselves. Fewer still are able to establish populations and reproduce. It is these hearty individuals that make up our non-native plant community. Of that set, an even smaller number of species are actually able to thrive and spread beyond their initial localized population. With so many natural filters it would seem that there would be very few invasive plants, but it is estimated that around 31% of the New England flora are nonnative, with 10% considered invasive. Both are numbers that continues to grow as globalization becomes the norm. To be awarded the moniker of “invasive” on Nantucket, the invasive plant species committee (IPSC) follows the Massachusetts Invasive Plant Advisory

We’ve all experienced the difficulty of finding reliable, locally owned taxi transportation on Nantucket. Doug Kruse, a seasonal island resident, was dining with friends in ‘Sconset one night during the summer of 2016. After a their meal, the group tried to find a taxi to get back home to their kids. Three or four phone calls later and still no luck, he thought, “There has to be a better way to find a local taxi!” Uber and Lyft were fast becoming global successes, and had recently made their debut on Nantucket. Kruse started thinking about a mobile app for Nantucket taxis. Rideshare companies have grown substantially over the since and have certainly filled a need, but not without drawbacks. As Kruse recalls thinking at the time, “It was troubling to watch these large corporations come to Nantucket and really hurt these local businesses, owned by year-round residents, who have been running these businesses for years. Plus, visitors to Nantucket are often paying ridiculous prices using these companies.” He personally knows drivers who, at the time, said they were losing their livelihood because they couldn't compete with the technology. Kruse set-out to create a level playing field. He founded tACKzee, an app used exclusively with Nantucket’s taxi services. long-term objectives would be to transition the existing taxi system onto the new and modern platform. Doing so will help the taxi community take back market share and sustain their local businesses. It will also provide convenience and affordability to individuals on Nantucket, while encouraging the support of local island businesses. According to Liam Bruno, COO at tACKzee, “We believe that a large part of the reason rideshare companies have been able to take away so much business from the Nantucket taxi companies is because of the convenience offered by mobile technology. We set out to bring this same level of convenience to the Nantucket taxi companies by creating a mobile app exclusively for the Nantucket taxi community.” tACKzee has many benefits to all parties involved. Riders experience low fares during "surge" periods as TACKZee uses the taxi rates created by the Town of Nantucket, not the ever changing fares used by rideshares. Drivers and owners get the same payout using the technology as they do now and they will never have to pay to use the app. Riders simply incur a small app fee to cover operational expenses of the platform. The app also offers similar tap-to-ride features as other apps but connects exclusively to licensed drivers on the island. Best of all, the app is promoting local business owners who are a part of the Nantucket community. This, after all, is the place they live and pay taxes. Download the app at tackzee.com.

Jewelry that Gets into Your Soul by Suzanne Daub Unless you know where to look, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to pass by the pretty winding path that leads to back of Jonathan Raithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new building at 14 Easy Street. That would be a mistake. A short walk down this topiary-lined brick walkway to the left of Fog Island will lead you to the gallery of exquisite jewelry designs by R. Simantov. Craftsmanship is the heart of his work and attention to detail is evident throughout Simantovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistry, particularly in the mountings and settings. Many of the pieces are inspired by the rare gems he finds and motivated by nature. His Honey of a Ring showcases a 12k yellow sapphire with yellow canary diamonds â&#x20AC;&#x153;drippingâ&#x20AC;? down over honeycomb sculpted from palladium, and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;confettiâ&#x20AC;? around his rare 18 carat Rubellite Ring are tiny colorful gems scattered about 24k inlaid gold laurel leaves. His Pearl Cuff Bracelet has a tiny diamond atop each and every prong holding the gems. And his collection of Cuff Bracelets are inlaid on one side and engraved on the inside. New to his collection are many large, shimmering South Sea Pearls. One he showed us is a baroque pearl nestled in a bed of carved platinum seaweed with cabochon sapphire â&#x20AC;&#x153;bub-

Styling the modern family from ski to sea!

I haven’t really lived anywhere but Nantucket for any significant length of time. Not to say that I won’t. I have plans…oh, I have plans. I have no clue what they are but I’ve got ‘em. In the past few years, I find that I wonder what summer is like for people in other places. Not weather wise; even with the heat we’re experiencing, it’s a quick drive or bike ride to a spot to dip your toes in and cool down. I’m more curious about the pace. I love reading stories about the lazy days of summer. Relaxing by the pool, chilling beer in the stream, endless days on the beach that turn into sunsets then evening swims. Sounds heavenly. I do believe that my tendency to go full tilt from Memorial Day to Labor Day is a result of genetics (my die hard, Yankee/Puritan work ethic), location (you can truly feel the pulse increase as we near the middle of the summer), and opportunity (make hay while the sun shines.) To put it simply, I have a job where I do what needs to be done in order to meet the needs of the customers and support the business. Being trusted to that extent, having autonomy in my job is something that I never, ever take for granted. I’ve had a couple of my own small businesses over the years, cleaning houses. I am horrible at self employment. But give me the key to your place, and a little trust, and watch out! I can say quite unabashedly with not an ounce of humility, that I am a great employee. And, as such, on Sunday, I have just returned home after an 8-hour day, which is a short day for me this time of year. My husband is not only self-sufficient, but a very good cook, so most meals are prepared by him. He is also very smart, and leaves on or about the first of continued on page 26

Gallery Openings This Friday and Saturday, August 10 and 11, there are several downtown gallery and studio openings you don’t want to miss! Start your Friday evening with a visit to 2 Union Street, where from 5 to 7 pm you can enjoy conversation and shopping at open studios with three independent jewelry designers. This historic building was once the home of Nantucket’s town offices and courthouse and retains much of its original charm. On the first floor, Jessica Hicks creates edgy and nature-inspired jewelry peppered with diamonds and other precious gemstones. Jessica’s “Perfect Couple” ring was recently featured in Elin Hilderbrand’s newest novel of the same name. Upstairs, Jennifer Greenwood’s designs are focused on highlighting unique stones in original, hand-made settings. Finely textured gold and silver surround opals, tourmalines, sapphires, and other natural gemstones in Jennifer’s one-of-a kind pieces in her signature style. Clay Twombly hand-knots strands of semi-precious gemstones, sandalwood, and Tahitian pearls into prayer beads and necklaces. He has also launched a collection of gold and silver jewelry for both men and women and carries porcelain wares by local artist Nell Van Vorst. Walk from 2 Union Street down to Easy Street to see the art of Cindy Pease Roe from 5 to 7:30 pm in the Susan Lister Locke Gallery, 28 Easy Street. Artist in Residence at Nantucket’s Maria Mitchell Association, Roe collects marine debris and creates captivating sculptures. This exhibit is entitled Unsculpting Seabirds to Protect Our Oceans. Robert Foster Fine Art at 8 India Street is a warm and welcoming gallery that represents some of the island’s most talented artists working today. From 6 to 9 pm this Friday, August 10, Robert is welcoming people to meet and see the work of Chalermkhwan “Kwan” Buadam Kwan’s decorative painting talents range from painting huge murals & frescoes in ancient Thai temples to doing faux finishes and everything in between.

tating exhibitions, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure to find a gem to add to your collection at Robert Foster Fine Art. Known for the graceful and meaningful sculptures of the female form by sculptor David Hostetler, this Friday, August 10 from 6 to 9 pm, Hostetler Gallery at 42 Centre Street is hosting an opening reception for a special photography show. This exhibit features Polaroid Pulls and abstract color photograms by Ellen Carey, abstract photographs of iconic movie scenes by hazart, color photographs by Sherre Wilson Liljegren, and unique photograph based prints by David Hostetler. All the artists use dramatically different techniques to create their artwork. Hostetler Gallery has also represented Power Boothe, Art Werger, Xanda McCagg, and other exemplary artists in their Nantucket gallery. For more about what they offer, visit hostetlergallery.com An exhibition of paintings and silkscreen prints by contemporary British artist Dan Baldwin will open this Saturday, August 11, in the Samuel Owen Gallery at 46 Centre Street. The artist is at the forefront of the new Young British Artist movement. This is the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premiere show in the U.S. Dan Baldwin communicates directly with the viewer through his dramatic paintings. His work can be multilayered both in medium and technique and in meaning. Baldwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works draw in the viewer with his close attention to balanced, rich colors and harmonious composition which he layers with innocent and jarring images, vehicles of the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s internal thought and emotional processes. Motifs in Baldwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organic compositions include childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storybook illustrations, images of war, skate graphics and Vanitas. Though primarily a painter, Baldwin has also created silkscreen prints and ceramic work, as well as book cover and album art. He has also collaborated with clothing designers such as Sara Berman. Exhibiting globally, Baldwin has become an established figure in the art world and has garnered a passionate following. He has become an art investment favorite, and prominent artists such as Damien Hirst, Gilbert & George and Peter Blake collect Baldwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work and credit him as a key influence of his generation. Celebrity collectors include Bernie Ecclestone of the Formula One Group, British businessman and political figure Sir Ronald Cohen, Jake Chapman of the artist duo The Chapman Brothers, and BBC radio host and television Jo Whiley. Samuel Owen Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located on Centre Street in Nantucket. In 2015, Samuel Owen Gallery took up summer residence in the historic Seven Seas building on Nantucket Island; it is also open yearround on Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, Connecticut. In both locations Samuel Owen Gallery is committed to exhibiting the work of emerging to midcareer artists, as well as a variety of strong secondary market works.

Freedman’s Fr F Fre reeedddm re man ma an’s off Nantucket Nan Na anntttuuuccckkkeetet W hen did yyo ou discover your creativviity? Afftter getting a degree in industrial engineering and then two years in the Coast Guard, I became a partner in a design business. I discovered an unending creative side but I was workkiing 12 hours a dayy,, seven daayys a week and traavveling around the world. I was workkiing so hard that I went to see a “guru” to help me explore my spiritual side. That expanded my artistic side tremendouslyy..

How did you start creating the beautiffu ul and unique items yyo ou sell todayy?? I came to realize that my work needed to be more tactile…more sensual. D uring a trip to India, I saaw w a tapestr y that was unattractive and poorly made—a novelty piece. I thought this could be a beautiffu ul piece if I just changed the design and the color. I started workkiing with the artisans there to change how what they are doing with their pieces and to improve the quality of their work. I was selling wholesale at the time, and that business just grew and grew: we were in some of the best stores in the countr yy..

W hat broug gh ht you to Nantucket? I decided to sell the business and semi-retired here to Nantucket. I opened a small shop on the W harff.. It was so successffu ul that some years later we moved to this location at 14 Centre Street. This is an ideal location: the street used to be called Petticoat Row w....it has a sense of histor yy.. With the size of this shop, I can make a real statement.

You aallwaayys haavve something new in yyo Yo our shop, wh w hat ’s new ffo or 2018? There are too many new items to list, like a 21-inch end table that is a copy of a watch and picture ffrrames made out of quartz and agate and bur l wood. W Wee’re the perffeect place to shop ffoor someone lookkiing ffoor something difffeerent — we never haavve the same-old, same-old… ever ything here is unique.

How do yyo ou keep yyo our creative enerrg g y ffllow wiing? For me it never ceases! If I’m not being creative in the store, then Fo I’m creative at home, in the garden… It ’s rewarding; it ’s an afffiirmation that I’m okaayy! People come into the store and saayy it ’s like a museum, and I ffiind that deeply gratiffyying!

perience. Student Mariners leave with not only new friends, but a new network of support from Egan Maritimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff and the shipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; crew they sailed with.â&#x20AC;? 2018 Fritha Student Mariner Tadhg shared his perspective: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that at the beginning of this sail we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know enough about each other to build the trust needed to work well as a crew on a tall ship. But working with each other through the wet and the fog the first days brought us closer together and helped us understand each other more and started building trust in the people around us.â&#x20AC;? Thirteen island youth participated in the 2018 Student Mariner sails: eight aboard Tall Ship Lynx and five aboard Tall Ship Fritha. 2018 Lynx Student Mariner Garner reflected on his experience: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had so much fun and learned so much on the amazing Lynx journey to Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vineyard. I loved the activities we did during the voyage. I also loved the crewsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eagerness to help us learn how to sail. My favorite part of the trip was working hands-on during our voyage. I liked working night shift and making bracelets, as well as setting the sails and playing on the rope swing. I personally gained so much knowledge and had a great experience on the Lynx.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We at Egan Maritime derive great satisfaction from the fact that many of our Student Mariners have chosen to pursue higher education in the marine field,â&#x20AC;? remarked Egan Maritimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Executive Director, Pauline Proch. By the fall of 2018, there will be eight Egan Maritime Student Mariners who have graduated from Nantucket High School and are enrolled at maritime academies and educational institutions. Three of those eight were on the first Student Mariner sail in 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you had told us this outcome when we launched in 2014, I might not have believed you,â&#x20AC;? said Proch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making mariners was never our intention. We wanted to give local students an experience that would foster growth while also applying the science and knowledge they learned in our Sea of Opportunities classrooms to real-life experiences.â&#x20AC;? Egan Maritime collaborates with all island schools to provide a STEMbased maritime curriculum as part of the Sea of Opportunities program. At Nantucket Public Schools, Egan Maritime partners with Cyrus Pierce Middle continued on page 15

School (CPS) to sustain the Sea of Opportunities Oceanography and Maritime Studies class, a core required class for all eighth grade students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Investing in Nantucket youth through Sea of Opportunities has become a large part of MarEgan itimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission and purpose,â&#x20AC;? noted Proch. Egan Maritime invests a lot into Nantucket youth at all island schools thanks to the support of their leaders and patrons. Each student in the CPS eighth grade photo courtesy Egan Maritime oceanography class is a $1,000 investment, and Student Mariner sails are zero cost to the youth who participate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that Student Mariners are transformed by their Tall Ship experiences and that their lives are shaped by them. When we see the future seeded with a new generation of island mariners, we know that what we are doing is important. We know that Nantucketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seafaring legacy and traditions will continue.â&#x20AC;? There is no question that Egan Maritimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Student Mariners go through a sea change when away from the safe harbor of Nantucket. Schwanfelder noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sails open up a world of opportunity that most of these students had no idea existed. They see teamwork in action. They see how what they do affects the next. They see practical application of what they study in the classroom on the water and in the world. They realize there is a whole path to growth and success that is accessible and ready for them.â&#x20AC;? Said Proch, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is remarkable to have a new generation of mariners from Nantucket out in the world that includes young women as well as young men.â&#x20AC;?

Group (MIPAG) listing criteria that a plant must follow to cause some kind of harm: be it economic, ecological, or to human health. The IPSC, as well as individual conservation groups, work to manage these species on their properties throughout the island. But with so many invasive species to count, certain properties, habitats, and species are prioritized. If you see any invasive species on your property, you should properly remove and dispose of the plant. The IPSC has some guidelines on their website nantucketbiodiveristy.org. Reporting plants to IPSC is also helpful for islandwide management efforts. However, if you would like to see some for a lesson on identification and curiosity, one of the best places on island is at the Lily Pond property owned by The Nantucket Land Bank. Park in the lot off of North Liberty Street, and from there you can walk down into the field and along the forest edge mix. A great habitat for birds, you may see them flitting in and out of the shrub row. This hedgerow is a treasure trove of invasive plants. Look for leaves, flowers, and fruits of various shapes sizes and colors to differentiate. Below are some of the most common non-native invasives that can be seen at Lily Pond. Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica): is native to Asia and one of the most invasive species in the world. It can grow in two inches of concrete. Knotweed was introduced in 1874 for soil stabilization. It is difficult and costly to control. Phragmites (Phragmites australis) is extremely invasive in aquatic systems primarily freshwater ponds and marshes. The tall reeds are detrimental to native plants and wildlife and alter the habitat in which they grow. Mulitflora rose (Rosa multiflora): Introduced from Japan in 1886 as an ornamental for its perfusion of small white flowers and hardy roots, this plant was promoted as a living fence. Today it is a major invasive species in the New England landscape. Shrub honeysuckle (Lonicera sp.): Introduced from Japan in the 1860s it was used as an ornamental shrub for its flashy white and fragrant flowers. Birds love the prolific red berries produced throughout late summer, which further spreads the seed. Porcelain Berry (Ampelopsis glandulosa) is a woody vine which closely resembles our native grape. The fruit, however, are speckled and range in color from dark purple to pink and pale blue. This plant is highly invasive on forest edges and in disturbed habitats. Oriental Bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus) is a woody vine native to Asia. It is well known for its beautiful orange and red fall berries. Bittersweet was first introduced in 1860 for ornamental reasons, and its seeds are spread throughout New England primarily by birds. English Ivy (Hedera helix): In addition to being invasive, these ivy plants are poisonous so few grazers can eat them. At Lily Pond, English ivy can be seen pulling down trees and smothering other plants. While this was just a taste of the non-native invasive plants at Lily Pond you can see many others as you walk through this disturbed, wetland habitat.

She Left Us Her Song from page 5

it together. The chanting unites all voices into one voice. Singing does the same thing: when you sing with everyone else, your voice melts into the one. When we sing, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily join in with the words, but we join in with each other. My father was a horrible singer. Not only did he have no sense of tempo, key, or even notes, he found a way to separate himself from the rest of the congregation and finish Take Our Bread a few seconds after everyone else. At Stroll in a long ago December, I took my parents to dinner at the Languedoc. The Flanagan family came in to sing carols and my father joined in, with his own stumbling pratfall of a voice. My now departed friend stood next to him, held his hand, and made him keep time with her. Singing requires humility, a trait that we have weaned ourselves from. We either hide from the world in our earphones and screens or we broadcast our individuality with a puppy dog filter on Instagram. We live in a world where Netflix knows just what I want to watch, Amazon knows what I want to buy, and Apple knows what I want to listen to. Everything from the phone in my pocket to books on my shelf tell me that I am my own star. But I am not. I dance the same dance and I sing the same song. When I sing, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sing my own words, I sing someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Faith just opens my ears to the tempo we all move to. We dance in communion, whether we know it or not. We are not better and not worse than the names on the wall or the names in the paper. She, my departed friend, saw that as a responsibility. Just as it was a responsibility for her to stand at the front of the church and sing, so it was a responsibility to be Town Clerk. A clerk is not select or special; you do your work with a pen and a stamp. The clerk stands up when lives are shaking and changing. A baby is born, and the name needs to be registered. A commitment is made, and the bond should be affirmed. A person is lost, and the loss must be annotated. A clerk serves when life shakes. When I was getting divorced, I took a boat to the island for the court hearing. I needed to drop my bags someplace and see a friendly face. So, with my life fracturing into large legal pieces, she held my luggage in her office and said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tomorrow is another day.â&#x20AC;? And so it is. At one point, on her desk, she had a paperweight given her from her dad; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illegitimus Non Carborundumâ&#x20AC;? (Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the bastards grind you down). It was their song. Tuneless, it sings of faith; in order for the bastard to grind you down, you have to stand. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t retreat, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t excuse or hide or lie. You stand. She stood on faith in the communion, whether it be the communion of the saints or of the sinners. Our community is not an easy one to stand with. Our wallets make claims that our children will have to pay for. We vote for fools and knaves who promise that tomorrow will be just as good as yesterday. Put a big sign and a waving moron at the rotary, and the island will select him. Over the years, she counted more than a few votes that she wished went the other way, but throughout she knew where she was and who she was with. But now our choirmaster has gone. The community stands mute. Inside St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the warm air smells of sweat and wax. A jet flies overhead, then the talk and tread of the passersby mark the minutes. The wind blows the fog out, the tide comes in, and the hours without her mount. Somewhere, her replacement waits to clear her desk in the town building, remove her pictures, and try to fill the long, but fading, shadow. Somewhere else, the poor look for housing, the old look for company, and the sick look for relief, And the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bastardsâ&#x20AC;? grind. The only thing she left us is her song. Let us lift our voices and sing.

July to visit family. It seems that someone in our clan needs an extra hand at some point in the summer, and as The Fixer (him) and The Helper (me) we work either together or separately to support and sort things out. I love it when my husband goes away. I really do. I start pestering him, inquiring about his travel plans for July in May when business starts picking up. A week or so before he heads to the highways, I start plotting and planning; What closet will I clean out first? How much can I get done in the basement? Do we really need xy or z? What cereal will I have for dinner? Will I go to bed at 7 or 7:30? Yes, friends, it is wild ride. His trip comes at just the right time for me to fully give in to my need to focus on my work, and for most of July and August, the hours are long, but the work is so much fun. I love providing great customer service and delighting people with products they didn’t know they needed. I am not a person who needs to have something different for each meal, and would truthfully be quite content making one big pot of a delicious soup or pasta and enjoying it every night, and yes, for breakfast as well. Cereal aside, being alone for a few days is an exercise in creating delicious, healthy meals for one. After a long, busy day at the farm, the process of cooking, which I do enjoy, is the last thing I want to do. Going home, kicking off my shoes, watering my pots of herbs, flowers and vegetables while letting the cold water wash over my feet, settles and centers me. Its a sweet, deep breath. At the beginning of the week, after cleaning my house, top to bottom, and cleaning out the fridge, I make sure to have some staples, so that I can pull, heat (or not) and eat each evening without too much additional work...

Once I’ve gathered all the goods, I take a nap. In all seriousness, if this is going to be the one prep day that I have, I want to meet it head on, rested and relaxed. However, before the nap, if I’m going to cook dried beans, I’ll get them in a pan, covered with water. After a doze, I dig in. A side note: ditch the plastic bags, and dig through your cupboards. I’ll bet that you have plenty of containers with lids that need a quick wash to be ready for action. Over the years, I’ve collected some great, glass refrigerator dishes. They stack so perfectly, and come in a variety of sizes. Yard sales, Take It or Leave It, the Hospital Thrift Store are all really good resources. For an hour or so (plus some cooking time) of prep, you can fill your fridge with healthy ingredients that will give you a weeks worth of nutritious and satisfying meals. The basics: Once you’re up from your nap, preheat the grill. Slice the onions, squash, and sweet potatoes and grill off. Drizzle and sprinkle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Set aside and cool. Next up: grill off the chicken. Set aside and cool.

Breakfast... I’m out the door before 5 am most mornings. You know those people that are wide awake the second their eyes open, ready to jump up cheerfully and take on the day. Yeah. That’s me. I am most definitely a morning person. However, I get up and get out, I’m really not big on spending much time in the morning slicing, dicing, and putting together my meals for the day. Planning ahead just a bit can make all the difference. If cooking beans, rinse them off, cover with fresh water, add two tablespoons of Olive oil, the ends of the onion that you’re going to grill, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook till done, usually about 45 minutes. When done, don’t completely drain off all of the liquid. It’ll come in handy if you want to make some refried beans. It’s too easy to grab something that may be satisfying in the moment, but won’t sustain me through the morning. The Super Hero Muffins are great, and I’ll whip up a batch every so often, but I really love oatmeal. I’ve tried a bunch of overnight oats recipes, but hadn’t found one that I really looked forward to eating. For me, this one does the trick! Makes three portions (I find that it doesn’t age well, so three days ahead is plenty.)

Overnight Oats 1-1/2 cup oats and a pinch of kosher salt In a dry skillet, toast rolled oats over medium heat, stirring and tossing until golden brown. (Truth told, I like mine a little past golden. Ok, way past golden.) Set aside to cool. Divide into thirds, and pour oats into individual jars or bowls. Pour 3/4 cup of almond milk over the oats. My favorite mix of stuff is: 1 tablespoon chopped almonds or walnuts 1 packet or 1 tablespoon flax seeds, ground 2 tsp maple syrup (use the real stuff, you’ll need less, & its high in antioxidants) Stir in a cup of mixed berries. Pinch of salt Chill overnight, slap a lid on, toss in your bag and go. This is my go to boat breakfast if I’m heading off on the early boat.

Lunch... I do love me a great sandwich, but I want a fresh sandwich made just becontinued on page 28

fore I eat it. I’d rather bring a bag of ingredients; bread, a head of lettuce, tuna and mayo, than make and bring a sandwich that I’ll eat four hours later. Or…. A pasta salad with tuna is a yummy, easy, make-ahead lunch. Cook a package of your favorite bite-size pasta according to directions. Cavatelli is my current go to. Once cooked, but still warm, toss with a dressing. It can be as simple as a great pre-made, or as simple as oil and vinegar, salt and pepper. Once dressed set aside. Slice squash and sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch dice. Start the grill, and get the squash, sweet potatoes and chicken cooked off. Set aside to cool. Cook some beans and add a spoonful or two to the cooked and dressed pasta. Put the rest of the beans aside for other meals. This can now go in the fridge to use as a base for lunch or dinner. In a bowl with a lid, rough chop a half head of romaine lettuce. Add a cup of the pasta and beans mix, along with diced cucumber, diced red pepper and a cup of mixed diced squash, onions and sweet potatoes. Toss in the tuna and chill overnight.

Dinner... This is the best part. Reaping the benefits off your prep time, and knowing that you have enough to share should you decide to kick up your heels, have a few folks over and stay up past 7:30. With all of this great stuff and 20 minutes, you can make: Chicken Tacos with refried beans Grilled Romaine with Shredded Chicken Chicken soup with grilled vegetables Vegetable frittata Tossed Salad Feet up, a big glass of water, a glass of wine and a deep breath. Rested and ready for the pace of the place we call home.

Jewelry in Your Soul from page 9

bles” floating up to the pearl. A pair of earrings he displays has gorgeous silvery pearls set in green gold scattered with green garnets and diamonds. He does not design exclusively for women. Several of his pieces are created for men who appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. His magnificent sterling silver Scull Ring with garnet eyes is a distinctively detailed sculpture that can be worn. Although Reubin Simantov shies away from a title of designer, saying “You are the designer; I just help you discover what you want,” he and his team of masters have resurrected techniques many jewelers have abandoned. “I execute what’s lost,” he says “craftsmanship is my heart and soul.” A fascinating example of this is Simantov’s Intaglio jewelry. The opposite of relief printing, to create intaglio, the artist must etch into a gem. Think of it as a reverse cameo. Carved intaglio rings can be used to create seals, and so were once worn by every powerful businessman in the Roman empire and by royals through the ages. Prized by collectors of antiques, intaglios are rarely made today. Reubin wants to change that. “I want to resurrect the art of jewelry making...it’s the art of it that is my passion.” In his Nantucket gallery, he displays stunning examples of this handcarved artistry in gems: a graceful horse, a detailed crab, a delicate butterfly complete with veins of its wings and slender antennae. Not only do these make beautiful imprints, but the rings themselves are wonderfully wrought, continued on page 32

vors of ginger and cilantro settle in with a light spice from crushed red pepper. One dish that walks the line between app and entree is the Thai Green Curry Mussels (cover photo). Handfuls of healthy black bivalves are bathed in a house coconut curry that is too good to leave behind. Add the garlic bread to help soak up every drop. The crowd pleaser of the evening was the Nachos with the famous Rose and Crown Crack Chicken. Piled high with plenty to Nachos share, they are decked out with melty cheese, red onions, jalapenos, and fresh tomatoes. The star of the show is the chicken, of course, slow-cooked and so good in a secret blend of ranch dressing and sour cream. We were spoiled the evening we visited The Crown with so many delicious entrees that it was almost impossible to pick a favorite. Every item was prepared with care and each dish stood alone as the accompaniments were tailor-made to suit. The Surf and Turf Burger is even better than is sounds. It is simply summer on a bun with loads of lobster atop an 8-ounce Angus burger, served with a house truffle mayonnaise and verdant green lettuce. The best of both worlds in every bite. We were treated to even more lobster in the Lobster Roll. It is served wonderfully warm, making the seaside classic more divine for dinner. Surf and Turf Burger The buttery roll was toasty and sweet, the lobster was lightly dressed in a lemon butter, and the cole slaw was the perfect side. We couldn’t urge you enough to try the Pan Seared Black Bass. The flesh of this fish is flaky and mild yet meaty and dense, and the plating put us over the moon. It’s served over perfect al dente brown rice and corn chowder, a side that enhances the sweetness throughout. Sauteed arugula and summer tomatoes add a fun, fresh flavor. This dish was hard to share! In The Crown’s version of everyone’s favorite barbecue basic, Baby Back Ribs are smothered in a house cranberry sauce and served with fries and cole slaw. They’re patiently slow-cooked then grilled fast for a caramelized crust that you just can’t beat. Fall off the bone finger food that is so easy to love.

August 9-15, 2018

Marvelous meaty Grilled Swordfish comes alive with a lemon caper sauce and sun-dried tomatoes. It’s served with gluten free Korean spiced quinoa, peas and carrots and could easily step in for a steak. A sandwich to please at any time of day is the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Tender, juicy white meat is served in a cheesy ciabatta bun. It’s crunchy and delicious, but topped by the toppings. Whipped feta, roasted tomato, and mint-marinated cucumbers bring every Pan Seared Black Bass bite to life. Dessert did not disappoint with two Crown classics. The Fried Cheesecake is sweet, crispy, and cool with a delightful tang, served with vanilla ice cream and a caramel drizzle. The Flourless Chocolate Torte is a decadent dream served warm with vanilla ice cream. It is dark, dense, and delicious. You’ll find Debba, the Queen of The Crown, working every angle of the restaurant. If she’s not showing you to your table she’ll be taking your drink orders or bringing you dinner. It’s an obvious display of the passion she and the rest of the crew Baby Back Ribs have, making it their mission that you leave happy. So come alone, come with friends, or come with family. Come as you are to The Rose and Crown.

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.

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.
