Sail with Pirates Egan Maritime Institute (Egan Maritime) is delighted to announce a unique opportunity for fanciful family fun at Family Day aboard Tall Ship Lynx, A Pirates and Mermaids Extravaganza on Thursday, August 17. Participants meet at 8:15am at the Town Launch on Straight Wharf, behind Straight Wharf Restaurant, to ensure they will be onboard Lynx for the 9 am sail. Once aboard Lynx, participants will join the adventure and enchantment with a salty crew of pirates and mermaids sharing tales and tails of life at sea through song, story, and sail. With the memorable backdrop of Nantucket’s townscape, the island’s maritime folklore will transport participants young and young at heart through the misty curtains of time aboard Nantucket’s iconic Tall Ship, Lynx. “This is a Nantucket family program like no other,” said Orion Couling, Egan Maritime’s Director of Special Maritime Programs. “With a cast of costumed seafaring characters, kids and their families will experience history through the lens of imaginative play and fanciful fun.” Participants of all ages are encouraged to come in costume dressed as their favorite pirate, mermaid, or maritime character. Snacks will be provided onboard the ship. Tickets may be purchased online at Eganmaritime.org, or by calling the Egan Maritime Institute box office at (508) 228 -2505 x.17, Monday through Friday, 9am to 1pm. Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children with special pricing for Egan Maritime members. Egan Maritime Institute envisions a future in which Nantucket's seafaring legacy is preserved, protected, and embraced by future generations. It works to achieve this vision through its programs: the Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum; Sea of Opportunities, a collaboration with public and private Nantucket schools; ACKweather, a website, phone app, and multiple social media channels dedicated to reporting Nantucket's unique weather challenges; Mill Hill Press, publisher of distinct Nantucket books; and the annual Maritime Festival. Each program aims to educate and provide experiences to achieve Egan Maritime’s mission of inspiring the appreciation and preservation of Nantucket's maritime culture and seafaring legacy.

The Creativity of Don Freedman When I arrived at 14 Centre Street for a chat with the man behind the creative endeavor that is Freedman’s of Nantucket, Don was swapping stories and sharing international adventures with some regular customers who are also world travelers. This gave me time to browse through the shop. There’s always something new to discover here: a handcarved elephant with a vintage look, a set of sculpted candlesticks that look like harps; beautifully adorned photo frames, stunning lamps for a French Industrial decor; an enormous wall clock; handpainted boxes; an ice bucket of raw nickel that almost looks like pewter. And there are many items made from

Visitors Remind Us by Robert P. Barsanti On a night in August, a yacht named The Podium was tied up at the end of Straight Wharf, just beyond the swinging saloon door that protected “Yachtsmen and their guests” from the rest of us. The Podium is a 197 foot Lurssen super yacht tied stern first in what has become the pole position for the new whaleships. Her owner was probably home in bed up near Wauwinet, under a fifty million dollar roof and lighthouse. Or, perhaps, he was in town because his runabout was tied up next to The Podium and in the way of the Hy-Line ferry. The Gray Lady IV reversed out of the slip, came to a stop, pulled forward, angled, eased back, pulled forward, and finally reversed out into the harbor, pivoted, and headed back to Hyannis. Over the years, the moat got wider and the walls got higher. Nantucket has always been a far-away island, but the biggest of money have been pushing us further and further out to sea where only the G4’s and the 200 foot yachts can reach. Summers on island once were celebrated by the demo derby, fishing tournaments, and the carnival. Now, it our celebrations remain “for the yachtsmen and their guests.” We have traded families for fundraisers. Every seat is reserved for the mighty. For thirty bucks, you can bring a blanket and sit behind them. On this night in August, I was at the epicenter of August, waiting for houseguests to filter through the winos and workmen on Straight Wharf. They were the best of houseguests; they were only with me for a night before their rental house opened up in Madaket. They arrived with a bottle of bourbon, a bag from Trader Joe’s, and a contract for a rental car. I drove the old jalopy passed the summer special, braved the Yukons of Connecticut and the Escalades of New York, collected the luggage and the loved ones, then negotiated downtown traffic, with texting bicyclists, madras walkers, and meandering Mercedes and, after a long moment behind a Suburban trying to squeeze into a space far too small, I zipped around the rear bumper, scurried up Washington Street, and came to rest behind a NRTA bus and 3 scooters. “Wow.” They said. My mind leapt to all of the astounding things they had seen tourists do in continued on page 16

Meteors This Week, Eclipse Next by Sanibel Chai

40 CENTRE ST.

5082283214

Though the Great American Eclipse will be visible at midday in Nantucket on August 21, the island is not in the path of totality. This means we will only observe a partial solar eclipse. If you are looking for a nighttime astronomical spectacle, the peak of the Perseid meteor shower is the night of Saturday, August 12 into the following morning. The Perseids are a product of the debris and dust left behind by the Comet Swift-Tuttle. When the earth passes through this trail of debris from mid-July through August 26, we see the Perseid meteor shower. The peak of a meteor shower occurs when the Earth is passing through the densest and dustiest part of the path of the comet. Typically, at peak viewers will see roughly 80-100 meteors per hour. However, the moon will be at three-quarters full on August 12 and the brightness of the moonlight will render the smaller and fainter meteors more difficult to see, leaving roughly 40-50 meteors visible per hour. We are well placed on Nantucket because the shower is best watched in the Northern hemisphere to mid-southern latitudes. Observing a meteor shower requires patience. Your eyes take about half an hour to adjust to the darkness so you will not be able to see the meteors as soon as you begin watching. When viewing, look for faint streaks as well as the more dramatic bright, fireball type meteors. Between midnight and dawn could be the best viewing times. Even with just 75 percent of the sun eclipsed at maximum, the coming solar eclipse is still an exciting event. The islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maria Mitchell Association is offering lectures, workshops, and more this week leading up to this rare astronomical event. Beginning Monday, August 14 the public is invited to visit the Maria Mitchell Association at 4 Vestal Street to receive a free pair of solar viewing glasses. These glasses allow people to safely observe the eclipse without damaging their eyes. Aside from solar telescopes, these safety glasses are the only safe method of directly observing the eclipse. They will be available Monday through Friday from 8am until 4pm: one pair of glasses per person while supplies last. On Tuesday, August 15 from 2 to 3 pm, the MMA will offer a Pinhole Camera Workshop. Participants will learn how to turn an ordinary shoebox into a pinhole camera, safe for a projected viewing of the eclipse. Registration at mariamitchell.org is necessary for this workshop as there are limited seats. The following evening, Wednesday, August 16, from 7 to 8 pm, the MMA will offer a lecture: The Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017 with the MMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Director of Astronomy, Dr. Regina Jorgenson, and the MMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deputy Director and Curator, Jascin Leonardo Finger. The talk will focus on the science and history of solar eclipses. Dr. Jorgensen and Finger will demystify the natural phenomena of solar eclipses and shed light on how they were perceived by early astronomers, including Maria Mitchell herself. No registration is necessary. Fee to attend is $10; members of the MMA are admitted free of charge.

Where Vintage is Something Special “Vintage” has become a buzz word, too often used without regard to true meaning. But there’s a shop on Old South Wharf where vintage = quality and where there’s history to the art and to the gift. Kathleen A. Duncombe of Made on Nantucket has been a part of Nantucket’s art scene for decades. This season she is offering some treasured pieces of Pre-Owned art in her shop at 18 Old South Wharf. Classics by such well-respected and widely collected artists as Nancy Gares, Polly Bushong, Watson Cady, Linda Zola, Scott Maclain, Katie Trinkle Legg, George Davis, Heidi Funck, Graham White, and others are rarely available in this type of selection. It’s an all-star collection of art from the 1960s, with new pieces being added. Made on Nantucket is filled with vintage collectibles. In addition to the PreOwned art, Duncombe offers vintage Old Spouter pottery and highly collectible vintage Bakelite—the largest collection in the Northeast—that includes beautiful bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces as well as stunning barware and kitchenware sets. Duncombe can't remember a time when she wasn't interested in art. "I was very fortunate to have parents who supported my creative aspects," she says. She summered on Nantucket her entire life, “my parents loved Nantucket: my whole family would gather here in the 1950s.” Being able to combine her two passions—art and Nantucket—was a dream come true. Whether you’re drawn to Made on Nantucket by Duncombe’s fascinating collections or by your own passion for art and for Nantucket, it is well worth the stroll down Old South Wharf. You’ll find Kathleen in her gallery at 18 Old South Wharf after 11 am.

Sunday, August 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, the Nantucket Maria Mitchell Association (MMA) will hold a reception and auction highlighting the dangers of plastic flotsam in our oceans through sculptures made from plastic beach trash. The auction will be held at the MMA’s property located at 33 Washington Street, Nantucket. A whale sculpture made by artist Cindy Pease Roe, during her Artist in Residency at the MMA, and whales made by other local artists will be auctioned. The MMA and the Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) understand the significance of communicating important ideas through different modalities. Recognizing that a story told through visual art can be extremely powerful and illustrative, the MMA and AAN were thrilled to offer “up-cycling” workshops in July, as they educated the public about plastic debris and the ocean habitat. Nantucket, as an island community, values its ocean resources tremendously as a continued source of food and income. There is significant concern over the growing amount of trash that finds its way to our beaches and oceans, ultimately impacting birds, fish, and mammals that rely on the ocean habitat. Additionally, the plastic is finding its way into the human food chain through continued on page 19

Eye on Style Jessica Hicks by Cara Godlesky For those who want something one-of-a-kind, Jessica Hicks Jewelry is the place to shop. Since 2007, Jessica Hicks is a jewelry store with a style that offers more than the preppy and nautical themes often found on Nantucket. Instead, the store proudly showcases jewelry with a unique style. Designer Jessica Hicks explained her jewelry as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a little bit of classic element and you can wear it forever and it will always stand outâ&#x20AC;Śand itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a little bit of edge to it. Some pieces areâ&#x20AC;Ś sophisticated and different than the mainstream jewelry that you usually see. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on trend. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be trendy. I want to be different.â&#x20AC;? The store features only products handcrafted by Jessica Hicks. She creates rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings using top quality materials, such as gold, raw diamonds, Swarovski crystals and semiprecious gemstones. Hicks uses interesting processes continued on page 26

What to Pop for Pops by Jenny Benzie Advanced Sommelier + Certified Wine Educator, Proprietress of Épernay Wine & Spirits Boston Pops on Nantucket is an annual fundraiser, and the largest of its kind, to benefit the Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Funds generated during the event stay on Nantucket and help to sustain the hospital’s year-round commitment to the health and wellbeing of our island community. Well, I’ll drink to that! Here is a quick list of sparkling options to help you celebrate and boogie the night away at this frolicking, fun event at the beach. Arrive with Lamberti Prosecco Doc... The house of Lamberti is located on the shores of Lake Garda in Northeast Italy’s Veneto region. The winery is named after one of the oldest families from Verona. The grapes used to make the base wine for this Prosecco are mainly Glera, a native white grape varietal from the region. The wine is then re-fermented in enclosed pressure tanks, known as the Charmat method for secondary fermentation, and is the method best suited to enhance the grape’s aromatic qualities. Pale, bright straw in color, floral aromas with peach and tropical fruit notes mark this personable Prosecco. The palate is clean with balanced acidity and a lingering finish on this lively and effervescent wine. Prosecco is meant to be consumed young and is great on its own or blended with fruit juices to create a Mimosa or Bellini. Lamberti also happens to be conveniently available in an easy-to-open 187 ml single serving size! Perfect cheese pairing: Pecorino Toscano (sheep’s milk from Tuscany, Italy) with Castleton Rosemary Crackers Chat with Parés Baltà Brut Cava... Parés Baltà has a long family history of grape growing and winemaking in the Penedés region of Spain, just south of Barcelona. The winery is operated by the current generation of two brothers while both their wives are the winemakers and oenologists. As a family, they have a passion for the natural and the environmentally respectful cultivation continued on page 30

Fighting a Beautiful Devil by Sarah Treanor Bois Director of Research & Education for the Linda Loring Nature Foundation Along some sandy roadsides and ruderal areas right now, you can see a tall, herbaceous plant with many small purple flower heads in bloom. Reminding many people of thistles, these beauties donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t boast any thorns, but are still a devil in disguise. This is spotted knapweed, Centaurea stoebe. This nonnative invasive species may seem small and delicate, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled. In the U.S. this plant has cost over $14 million annually in damage to rangelands in the west. Because we have learned from our neighbors in the west, the eastern states have been battling this species with hand-pulling, herbicides, and fire for decades. Native to central Europe, spotted knapweed was likely introduced to North America as a contaminant in alfalfa seed. It was first recorded in the U.S. in Washington State in the late 1800s. By 2000, it was reported from 45 of the 50 states and considered a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nuisance speciesâ&#x20AC;? in most of those states. Its name is derived from the black margins of the flower bract tips which give the flower heads a spotted look. The dusky green leaves are highly divided and persist as basal rosettes when not in flower. The flowering part of the plant only shoots up (bolts) in the early summer to reproduce. Individual plants may produce up to 140,000 seeds per square meter. Most seeds are shed immediately after reaching maturity. That means, once these plants go to seed, try not to mow and spread further! Another aspect to caution readers about is that the sap of spotted knapweed can cause skin irritation. As a precaution, anyone pulling or managing spotted knapweed should wear protective gloves. If you have worked with knapweed, you should wash your hands and exposed skin with soap and water following contact with this plant. Aside from skim irritation, what harm can this plant do? This seemingly delicate plant is known for its alllelopathic qualities. That means that it exudes toxic chemicals through its roots, killing or stunting the growth of neighboring plants. It is unpalatable to many grazers and browsers, which is why the western US has had such economic problems in the rangelands. On Nantucket, our concerns mainly lie with the sandplain grasslands and heathlands which are particularly vulnerable to a spotted knapweed invasion. Many of Nantucketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare and threatened species are grassland specialists thriv-

Visitors Remind Us from page 7

traffic during the last fifteen minutes. Instead, they looked up beyond me. A waxing moon rose over Shimmo and Monomoy, floating just beyond the swaying masts. Moonlight and moonshadow glowed in the inner harbor. A wind blew up and riffled the waves. A higher wind blew a thin sheet of cloud over the moon. Over the next few days, I helped them settle into an older Nantucket along E Street. We went shopping at the dump and found six beach chairs that would make it to Labor Day. When the children and grandchildren arrived, we dangled chicken legs for the crabs under the bridge. We dug littlenecks, shucked corn, and grilled swordfish. They strained their muscles on the bikes, burned their backs and shoulders in the sun, picked ticks off each other. A wonderful time was had by all. They had over-invited hot and sweaty mainland friends. The porch became a wooden pack-and-play, with gate, high chairs, toys, and plastic riding buses. They pitched a tent in the back yard, rotated the kids on the sofa, and rode their rented bikes for milk and the paper. Whether we have time for it or not, our visitors kick us out of our ruts and send us rolling down the meadow. The laundry will mildew, the bills will mellow with age, and the answering machine will glut itself to a beeping and flashing silence. Meanwhile, the visitors have dragged us out for a few hours at Fat Ladies Beach. In the quiet of the boiling surf, we see the island as they do. Uninterrupted miles of beach punctuated by a few hundred towels. Children giggling in the cart-wheeling violence of the breakers. Surfers standing and riding a few seconds before the cresting wave. To them, the beach is what it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not backed by a road and a honkytonk T-shirt/salt water taffy/tattoo mall. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hedged in by fences, white ropes, and discreet security guards. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not jammed with every mouthbreather in the tri-county area. Our landscape is their luxury. And it takes an afternoon in their eyes to see that it is our luxury as well. The true wealth of a Nantucketer is counted out in calendars. For us, island living is a thousand year picnic, but to them, it ends in a few hours. We will always have tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sunset and next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blueberry harvest. If fog rolls in, we can go to the beach or the golf course tomorrow or even next week. But our houseguests will be back in New Haven then, waiting in traffic on the I-91. Nobody plants daffodils, or hydrangea, alongside the interstate. In the end, I went with them to the Pops. We sat far from the swells with the cocktail bar and closer to the ones on the sand bar. We spread towels, poured champagne for everyone around us, ate meatball subs and deviled eggs, and waited for the orchestra and fireworks to interrupt the evening and the sunset. My old friends clustered the sunburned children, the grateful grandparents, and the rest of us into a photo in front of the Sound. And we became the touchstone for the next fifty years, the Christmas Card, the framed print, the desktop background, the time when we were all together on Nantucket. Some people work fifty-one weeks a year in order to spend one week on Nantucket. Those people take the four-thirty fast ferry back to the mainland. The line extends down to the Gazebo, but is polite and orderly. They file onboard, find a seat, and discreetly make camp. They are sunburned, they are smiling, they are a touch sad. As the boat makes its turn in the harbor, they get out the books or phones. But, before they submerge into their own worlds, they walk out onto the back deck and throw pennies at our treasure. If the boat can get past The Podium.

micro-plastics found in the fish that we consume. According to MMA’s Executive Director, David Gagnon, “This MMA project was designed to bring awareness to this challenging issue, while creating a unique opportunity for residents and visitors to observe and participate in this creative endeavor and to bring awareness to this growing and significant problem impacting our ocean environment.” An internationally renowned artist, Pease Roe is an individual who has been working tirelessly to spread the word concerning the impact plastics and other debris have on our ocean habitats. Pease Roe has garnered the interest of schoolchildren, art lovers, and activists alike by collecting plastic flotsam she finds along the shoreline and transforming it into thought-provoking and visually stimulating sculptures. Pease Roe works in a variety of media to capture the depth of her subject, including oil paints, encaustics, organic matter, recycled and up-cycled plastic, and sculpture. Pease Roe and other artists were invited to help spread the word about the dangers of plastic flotsam. As part of the MMA’s Artist in Residence program, Pease Roe donated the whale she sculpted during her residency to the MMA auction, as did workshop participants and artists Jan Purdy Metcalf, Pat Jones, and Julija Mostykanova Feeney. The whales will be displayed on August 13 and will include information highlighting the growing amount of plastic debris found in the oceans and on the beaches. Many of the sculptors identified the plastic ingredients used to construct each whale sculpture. As part of the MMA program, a school from western Massachusetts, The Academy of Charlemont, designed a whale surrounded by trash, a powerful image as one considers this problem. The Maria Mitchell Association is a private non-profit organization. Founded in 1902, the MMA works to preserve the legacy of Nantucket native astronomer, naturalist, librarian, and educator, Maria Mitchell. The Maria Mitchell Association operates two observatories, a natural science museum, an aquarium, and preserves the historic birthplace of Maria Mitchell. A wide variety of science and history-related programming is offered throughout the year for people of all ages.

artistic career,” said AAN curator of exhibitions Robert Frazier. “He began exhibiting his works in local galleries, and eventually set up his own print gallery on Old South Wharf.” “Donn is a legend in the Nantucket art world and especially known for his printmaking. Sadly, he can’t be here with us this year but we are thrilled to host this exciting print collaborative in his honor. His talent and expertise is extremely important to AAN and we truly appreciate his generosity and support of our print-making program,” said AAN adult education program director Mary Emery Lacoursiere.

A highlight of the day will be the steamroller printing. “We had such fun and success with this last year, that we really look forward to doing it again this summer,” said Lacoursiere. “Participants along with AAN artist members will create hand-carved blocks. Once the blocks are all inked-up and in place on our driveway — an actual steamroller will drive over them. The images from the blocks will be captured on a long piece of fabric and then hung for all to see,” she added.

Her work has slight abstract style that is often inspired by the patterns found in the world around us. “It’s about different shapes, patterns in nature. Everything I see turns into some kind image in my head as to how can I translate that into a piece of jewelry. And I challenge myself into doing just that,” said Hicks. Many pieces of jewelry in the shop have a nature theme. There are necklaces with the shapes of a shell on them, earrings designed after butterfly wings, and other pieces with stars and moons. Hicks also has an “erosion collection,” where the outside metal on the jewelry looks as though it has been worn away by the pounding surf. Jessica Hicks is also known for her popular Lorraine Collection. This collection’s notable features are the small holes pierced from the metal of the jewelry. These tiny holes can sometimes create an abstract look of bubbles in the ocean or an enticing geometric pattern. You’ll find these tiny signature holes on most of Hicks’ pieces—sometimes hidden on the continued on page 27

back other times displayed on the front. Hicks is in her third decade of jewelry making and loves the creShe ative process. doesn’t sketch out anything before she makes a piece. She feels it in her hands and lets them do the work. For Hicks, her shop is more than just a business— it is her passion. “There’s a certain energy that goes into making my designs that certain people feel and when they wear it, they connect with it and I like that,” said Hicks. When asked which piece of jewelry was her favorite, she replied that she couldn’t choose just one: “they are like my babies.” Hicks hopes to move into making more one-of-a-kind pieces with precious stones and metals. However, she says she will always offer her Lorraine Collection along with a few other classics. Hicks says she hopes people realize that her customers realize they are taking home a piece of Nantucket when they purchase one of her pieces. Her jewelry is inspired by the island and created by someone who is local. “When they are buying from a local business, someone who lives here year round, they are buying into the community, for us to make a living and survive here, keep the island running,” said Hicks. “Everything is made with my hands, with love, with my materials, my creative experience for over 30 years.” For your own piece of Nantucket jewelry, visit Jessica Hicks at 2 Union Street, right off of Main.

unusual materials: woven leather rugs, leather bars that are perfect for a summer retreat, beautiful boxes carved from bone or horn... whether you’re looking for an accent piece or to furnish an entire room, you’ll find treasures here that you’ll not see anywhere else on Nantucket.

Don motioned for me to follow him to the sun-drenched bench outside his shop to talk more about his inspiration and how he fills his shop with such unusual and sophisticated items. As we settled in, a couple from New York exited the shop and confronted Don asking: “Are you the owner of this shop?” When he nodded, the man continued: “Because this is the most amazing store I’ve ever been in in my life! Thank you!” When I asked if that happened often, Freedman smiled and said “I put a lot of effort into creating a store with a presence. We get a lot of repeat customers who make this a destination when they are on Nantucket...people

who return and buy from us every year. It’s very rewarding.” Freedman’s of Nantucket (formerly Expressions of Don Freedman) opened on Nantucket on Old South Wharf in 1981 and seven years ago moved to more spacious in-town location. Don Freedman is the designer for products made by carefully chosen craftspeople around the world. “I meet someone making a product to sell and redesign it for better quality... as a result our pieces are unique and can be sold for reasonable prices.” He seeks items that have a “Wow factor” but aren’t gaudy: “many things [in the store] have a subtle nautical theme but they are artistically interesting, not cutesy.” Over the years, Freedman’s has evolved to match the tastes of those who visit Nantucket, describing his product line now as “more sophisticated, more elegant... We’ve done business with half the interior designers in town and several from Connecticut for their customers on- and off-island.” Because each item is made by hand, Freedman explained, there is “a warmth and an honesty” to the pieces in his shop that you don’t often find in today’s market. With a mix of art and practicality, Freedman’s has something for every taste and decor. Freeman’s of Nantucket • Open Daily at 14 Centre Street; 508-228-3291

of the vines through organic farming with their wines being certified organic and their vineyards biodynamic. This Cava, as sparkling wine is called in Spain, is made using the local indigenous grapes of Parellada, Macabeo, Xarel¡lo. The second fermentation that creates the bubbles occurs in the bottle, same as with mĂŠthode champenoise. It is then aged in bottle for at least 12 months before released where by law, Cava must be aged a minimum of 9 months on the lees before being sold. Pale yellow in color, this Cava has medium intensity on the nose with toasty notes combined with aromas of pear and apple. It is fresh and alive in the mouth with dominating notes of fruit and a pleasant finish. While it is made in the same production method as Champagne, it is but yet a fraction of the price! Perfect cheese pairing: Manchego (sheepâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk from La Mancha, Spain) with Dalmatia Fig Spread Cheers with Champy Sparkling Wine... Champy was founded in recent years by Boston-based entertainment and lifestyle television personality Jenny Johnson. As a longtime lover of bubbly, Johnson enjoys the celebratory spirit found in sparkling wine and believes a glass can spontaneously transform ordinary moments into extraordinary ones (this is a good one for the Pops!). This brut bubbly from Sonoma County, California, is made in the Champagne method from a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. It is aged for about 20 months in the bottle, where as non-vintage Champagne only needs to be aged for a minimum of 15 months. Not only does the bright yellow label with gold lettering make for a beautiful package, the product inside is just as lovely. Soft, lush, and creamy in the mouth, this bubbly has hints of citrus flower on the nose and bright notes of sweet green apple and ripe stone fruit on the palate. According to Jenny: Be present. Be spontaneous. Be Champy. Perfect cheese pairing: ComtĂŠ Reserve (cowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk from the Jura region of France) with Firehook Sea Salt Crackers Sip with Syltbar Spumante RosĂŠ... For starters, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;spumanteâ&#x20AC;? scare you. This is the Italian word for â&#x20AC;&#x153;sparklingâ&#x20AC;? that often times has been associated with cheap, inexpensive plunk not worthy of mention. continued on page 31

In this case, however, we are referring to a premium sparkling wine that should garner your attention. Syltbar is a brand named after the isle of Sylt, located along Germany’s pristine northern shore. The picturesque dunes and charming lighthouses that characterize this island’s idyllic landscape are very reminiscent of Nantucket. Since this is a rosé wine made from 100% merlot, and even though it comes from the same region and is made in the same production method as Prosecco, it can not by law be called as such. Hence, the label simply reads vino spumante. This brightly colored rosé is elegant, complex, and fruity with delicate aromas of soft red fruits and lychees. Raspberry, strawberry and a bit of earthiness are delightful on the dry finish. Syltbar Rosé is quite the showstopper in that it has half the calories and less sugar than most other sparkling wines as the result of a longer fermentation time during production. What this means for you is fewer calories and less of a hangover! Perfect cheese pairing: Beemster XO Aged Gouda (cow’s milk from Holland) with Virginia Chutney Company Spicy Plum Chutney Groove with Gruet “Sauvage” Blanc de Blancs... Gruet Winery is a story of French roots and American dreams. Gilbert Gruet, along with his wife Danielle, were already producing fine quality Champagne in the village of Bethon in France. While traveling on a family vacation in the southwestern part of the United States, they came across a group of European winemakers who had successfully planted grapes in Engle, NM, hours south of Albuquerque. It was then that the Gruet family decided to plant their own vineyard in this newly discovered area and begin their American winemaking adventure. Gruet “Sauvage” is made in the same method of production as the Gruet family did in Champagne with the second fermentation in the bottle. The term sauvage refers to the naturalness in which the wine is made and has no dosage in its final production, making it a bone-dry sparkler. Blanc de Blancs, meaning white from white, refers to it being made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Pale straw in color, there is a delicate persistent mousse of fine bubbles. Mineral driven aromas and flavors of bright citrus permeate throughout the glass, inviting you for another sip. It is aged on tirage for at least 24 months, adding length and complexity to the finish. Perfect cheese pairing: Brie de Lyon (cow’s milk from Lyon, France) with Gluten-Free Mary’s Gone Crackers Herb Crackers While you are moving and grooving to the beats of the Beach Boys, please remember to partake responsibly and also pack out to properly recycle and dispose of what items you have brought in to the party. Rock on!

ing in nutrient-poor, sandy soils. Because spotted knapweed absorbs large amounts of water via its large taproot, when it replaces native grasses, soil erosion and surface runoff are increased, depleting precious soil resources. What is Nantucket doing about this plant? The Nantucket Invasive Plant Species Committee (IPSC) has been targeting hand-removal of this species along roads and paths adjacent to conservation lands along Eel Point Road, Madaket Road, and the south coast. We’ve been working hard to tackle this plant prior to seeding since this plant can produce an estimated 5,000 seeds per square foot. Seeds can remain viable in the soil for up to eight years, so, while removal is critical, it is also important to monitor the area for new sprouts each year. What can you do? If you see something, say something. Reports of this plant can be sent to me, Dr. Sarah Bois, at the Linda Loring Nature Foundation (stbois@llnf.org) or Kelly Omand of the Nantucket Conservation Foundation (komand@nantucketconservation.org). But the best thing you can do is to remove the plants yourself! Here are some tips for removing the plant at home: • Have the right tool for the job. Fortunately for us on Nantucket, sandy soils make pulling and digging long roots a little easier. We’ve found that the specialized weed digger tool with a long blade works best, but most heavy duty digging tools will do. • Wear gloves! The noxious chemicals produced by spotted knapweed can irritate the skin of humans and can sometimes cause migraines. • Pull plants during their bloom period and before they’ve gone to seed. They will need to be bagged and disposed of in household trash. You don’t want any of those invasives getting in to the compost! • Try to get as much of the root as possible. Pieces of root left in the ground will sprout the following year. • Join the Nantucket Invasive Plant Species Committee (IPSC) in our group pulling events! What’s better than a coffee clutch? An invasive plant clutch! Join us for one of our organized pulls and we’ll help you learn to ID the plant, best methods for removal, and you’ll be contributing to the preservation of some of our island’s finest native habitats.

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.
