Swim Supports Cancer Care FRENCH SOLE FALL 2018 Exclusively at

Medical research has shown that giving and volunteering improves the physical and mental health of the giver. On Nantucket, there is no better opportunity to improve your health status than to participate in the island charity event: Swim Across America. The Swim returns to Jetties Beach on Saturday, August 25 at 8 am for the seventh year and features various distances from a quarter mile, a half mile, a full mile and a kids splash. Last year, more than 250 swimmers raised $400,000 all to benefit cancer care on Nantucket. Jim Pignato, co-director of the Swim, said, “For those who need assistance in the swim there will volunteers, or angel swimmers, to guide them through the course.” To kick off the week, there will also be a 4-mile swim on August 18 when twelve swimmers will traverse the North Shore from 40th Pole to Jetties Beach in a marathon swim. Swim Across America donates significant funding for the oncology program on Nantucket. Nantucket Cottage Hospital now provides cancer care and infusion services under the direction of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Cancer Services. The NCH center is led by medical director Jon Dubois, MD and program leader Ugne Aleknaite, NP. Thanks in part to The Swim, year round and summer residents can get chemotherapy and immunotherapy

Hilarious Musical about Nantucket

Sorry Alexander Hamilton, but the historical figures of Nantucket’s vibrant story have taken over the stage in this summer’s debut production of Nantucket! The MusACKal! Playing a limited run this summer until August 19 (but returning next summer, with surprises and changes to keep it interesting for return guests), the raucous musical with an original, contemporary score provides both firsttime tourists and year-rounders with a comprehensive and comical telling of Nantucket’s history in a tight 70-minutes, packed with a laugh every second (which is about 4200 laughs per show, so bring your inhaler, just in case.) On stage only since July 19, the good word has clearly spread, as the theater has been selling out nightly. The best way to secure tickets is to buy them in advance at NantucketTheMusACKal.com, but the box office also opens on show days at 5:45p and is often able to accommodate day-of walkins. (Unclaimed tickets are released for resale at 6:25p.) The house opens at continued on page 11

Our World Needs Superheroes

Sail Endeavor a Nantucket tradition. established 1982

by Robert P. Barsanti If there is hope, it lies in Comic-Con. I have been dragged into the tradition of going to Comic Con in Boston. Rourke dresses up in his Cosplay (costume), and I drive him into the convention center in the new South Boston where he joined a migration of superheroes and villains. We park under a hotel, then join Darth, Tony Stark, Maverick, and thousands of others. You know you are in a different time and place when security has a weapons check for the plastic swords and cardboard blasters. Inside the exhibit halls, Dad has hundreds of opportunities to drop twenty bucks. You can sit inside the “Back to the Future� DeLorean, pose for a lightsaber fight with Darth Vader or get Christopher Lloyd’s autograph. My first few times at Comic Con, I felt embarrassed for the former stars of these shows, like Bill Shatner, but I think I know better now. Everyone dressed up in a Star Trek outfit loved the show and will remember this signature forever. They will put it in a frame, hang it in their office, and show the kids. How often does anyone get to sit in a room with that much love? Judgements don’t last long at Comic Con. You don’t pony up the money and show up in Deadpool outfit if you want to sneer and snort. Bad attitudes get sent back to the playground or the middle school girl’s bathroom. The dark bullies of our land would look at a forty-year-old man in a handmade Darth Vader outfit and snort. Everyone else asked him to pose for pictures. Rourke posed for pictures as well. He dressed up as Gordon Freeman, star of Half-Life and Half-Life 2. The games were last updated in 2004, when he was five. Nonetheless, four different people asked him to smile and pose for them, and he complied. More people photographed him in his Gordon Freeman costume than did in his graduation gown. Weighed down with bobbleheads, posters, books, and a key chain, we left after three hours, and he spent the next two hours planning next year’s costume. continued on page 8

ISLAND PAIRINGS

Smooth Sailing Rums by Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie Salt air breezes, toes in the sand, and sunshine on your face are all synonymous with island living on Nantucket, and no other spirit can make a cocktail that emulates life on an island quite like rum. Rum, made from sugarcane or a molasses product, is the host ingredient to many of the classic tiki-bar cocktails. Think of a thirst quenching Lime Daiquiri, a fresh from your garden Mint Mojito, or a Nantucket Island favorite: Dark and Stormy. Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie of Épernay Wine & Spirits gives us a brief history and tasty tour of rums you should be sipping with easy cocktail recipes for your next island themed gathering. Many of the rum brands we are familiar with today hail from the Caribbean and date back centuries. An abundance of sugar cane in the 17th century helped to make this spirit an international success. Sailing vessels carried exotic trades from the colonies and introduced Caribbean flavors to Europe and the Americas. Rum was used as part of currency for trade with other goods in these travels. At the same time, Boston Harbor was home to a significant amount of rum distilleries that also used molasses brought from the Caribbean to sweeten their baked beans and brown bread. Though none of those original New England companies are around today, thanks to a new generation of distillers we are seeing a resurgence in small-batch artisanal rum production in the region, and they are using better quality products and differentiation in the maturation process of the final product.

Memory is a younger sister; it taunts me with the truth. When I was Rourke’s age, I would not dare to go to Comic Con, even if it had existed back in the seventies. Nonetheless, I had a shield I practiced with. I had repurposed a metal sliding disk for games in the summer. I could throw it, I could hold it, and I could deflect all of the bullets fired at me under the maple tree in the side yard. But I never dreamed of bringing it out to the front of the house. Or carrying it into Boston. Captain America and Wonder Woman repeated themselves throughout the hall. He was tall, short, young, Asian, and African-American. Wonder Woman tended to be young, but brave. You have to be brave to put that suit on and then walk through a hall full of young men. Courage casts a long shadow and is tinted Hope. Captain America and Wonder Woman share a characteristic that other heroes don’t have. Superman and Iron Man fly, Hulk and Luke Cage punch, and Spiderman shoots webs. However, Captain America and Wonder Woman only have shields. Key moments for each character involve standing and protecting. Boy, could we use those superpowers right now. The shield and bracelets would be good for the bullets that our well-regulated militia let fly in schools and businesses. Beyond the physical threats, we have so much to protect. We have no military rival, yet, we must be ready to protect people more than ever; the young, the old, the sick, and the other. Standing requires courage. When you stand, you dare them to move you, to break you, to humiliate you. You can’t run, you can’t fly, and you can’t disappear. You can’t yield. When Captain America stands, he rejects compromise, rationalization, and conciliation. Rooted to rock and morals, he challenges in stillness. Come at me, bro. Rourke thinks about his future a great deal, as do I. As a young man with Autism, engineering and medicine seem out of reach. Right now, he is experimenting with some 21st century careers that don’t involve avocado toast. I tell him that I want him to be Captain America. He laughs. It won’t be easy. Most of the villains that threaten our future slip into our lives with a handshake, a check, and a full color brochure. The bad guy doesn’t have a Red Skull, instead he looks a lot like us. For example, the developers of Surfside Commons talk about affordable housing and jobs. The hammer shapes the hand out here. As most of the island residents are connected to building and selling real estate, the answer to almost every problem involves cement mixers and nail guns. Their ideas don’t seem any more extreme than the other ones that dot the moors and fill the streets. It would be easier to step aside and let it go. Thankfully, many are standing and protecting. Captain America has arrived. The Autism Walk comes this weekend; marking the end of the summer season and the beginning of the academic year. The future looms, for him and for all of us. I have not been very good at standing and protecting; I left my shield in childhood instead of bringing it with me. As a result, we have sharks eating seals off Surfside, restaurants selling their silverware in August, and Russians in the White House. The world I am handing my sons is on fire. They, however, have Comic Con. At our American core, away from Twitter and Reddit, we have become a nation that welcomes brown Wonder Women, overweight Batmen, and Ms. Thor. In my middle age, I regret that I am leaving my sons a world that needs superheroes. Luckily, they have powers.

Swim Supports Cancer Care from page 3

right here on the island. “Cancer diagnosis is devastating for the whole family and turns peoples’ lives upside down. Any sign of normalcy can bring a sense of relief. Our patients can get chemotherapy and pick up their kids from the summer camp on the same day.” said Aleknaite. Nantucket Cancer Care and Infusion Center takes care of 150 cancer patients in different stages of the disease. This year alone, NCH has provided nearly 500 clinic visits, 120 chemotherapy treatments, and almost 100 visits for supportive care. In recognition of the Greenbergs’ and Swim Across America’s contributions to the cancer services on the island, the infusion center at the new Nantucket Cottage Hospital will be named the “Swim Across America Infusion Center,” a gift of Erwin and Stephanie Greenberg’. The Swim also supports Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON) cancer care services. Though a great percentage of its patients are coping with cancer, PASCON provides pain control and symptom management as well as counseling and supportive care for those being challenged by any life-threatening illness. Charlene Thurston has been the nurse practitioner and program director for the past thirty years and has noted tremendous improvements in comprehensive cancer care in Nantucket since the Swim began. “Thanks to the support of Swim Across America, there has been a dramatic increase in the level of oncology services that could be provided on the island. The collaboration between the oncology specialists and our palliative care program staff have ensured that patients on Nantucket receive a high level of comprehensive cancer care often found only in large medical centers. It’s been a privilege to be part of this expansion of services,” said Thurston. Jill Roethke, co-director noted, “We encourage islanders and visitors to donate and sign up for the swim by accessing the on-line registration process at swimacrossamerica.org/nantucket. Joining the Swim will be good for your health and that of your fellow islanders.” The Swim is a great way to close out the summer at Jetties Beach with friends and neighbors. Breakfast is provided for all swimmers and volunteers.

From Maria Mitchell to Madaket Millie, the distinct characters of Nantucket’s past are brought to life by the sassy and salacious spirit of Nantucket: “Lady Grey” herself. She’s on a mission to educate two aspiring writers who have been tasked with writing (you guessed it) a musical about the island... on a very tight deadline! Oh, plus whaling. Did we mention whaling? There’s definitely whaling in this musical, but there’s just sooo much more! “We wanted to give anyone visiting Nantucket—for a day or a lifetime— an unforgettable and fun way to brush up on the history of the island surrounding them,” said Cecelia Joyce Johnson, whose Deep End Productions co-produces the show with Sally Horchow International Productions. The cast and crew are composed of many real, living, non-historical Nantucketers themselves with a passion for the island and its story. On stage, cast members Will Burns, Laurel Devaney, Alex Kopko, and Susan McGinnis will be familiar faces to islanders, while newbies Torian Brackett, Gabi Van Horn, Stacey Lauren, and Matt Sav (Composer & Music Director) are rapidly creating a groupie fanbase, and proclaimed that they “never want to leave.” With can’t-get-out-of your-head earworm songs like “It’s Cool to be a Quaker,” “Ladies Run the Nation of Nantucket,” and “The Oldest/Newest House,” the show spans the island’s history from Native American lore to the progressive idealists of the mid-1800s, straight on up to the absurdly long line outside of “The Juice Bar” this very afternoon. While the musical is comedic in nature, it also strives to provide the Nantucket community with an inspiring, memorable portrayal of the island’s unique story, separate in many ways from America’s “mainland” tale. “We’re thrilled to see audiences having a blast at our show, but just as importantly, leaving the theater with a greater appreciation and respect for the island and its amazing history,” added Sally Horchow, co-producer. Nantucket! The MusACKal runs Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 6:30p. Tickets are available now for performances through August 19.

Rums from page 7

Barbados, Mount Gay is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest rum producer. The name is in homage to the pioneer Sir John Gay who was the manager of the company upon its inception and laid the groundwork itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s international success. A barrel of Barbadian rum had become proof of a sailorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful voyage to the Caribbean and began the connection between seafaring and rum. Back in that day, Barbadian molasses was called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Goldâ&#x20AC;? due to the additional revenue it had been providing for the island. In 1910, the twin phenomena of a total solar eclipse and the passage of Halleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Comet inspired the creation of MOUNT GAY ECLIPSE. The water source for this rum comes from natural groundwater deep beneath the island that is naturally filtered by a pure, porous coral-limestone. After fermentation, the rum is matured in toasted Kentucky oak barrels that impart a subtle smokiness. Eclipse is a blend of aged rums and has a brilliant golden amber color offering aromas of apricot and banana, with hints of vanilla. Perfectly balanced and medium weight on the palate, this rum epitomizes Mount Gayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature style of crafting and blending pot still rums. For those of you on Nantucket during Memorial Day weekend, you may have spotted a Mount Gay Rum red cap on many people passing by. This is a symbol of accomplishment in the sailing community and can only be worn by sailors who have raced in a Mount Gay sponsored regatta where,

August 16-22, 2018

upon completion of the course (such as the Figawi boat race), they are awarded the cap. Rum + Tonic Light: Fill glass with ice. Add 2 ounces rum, top with Fever Tree Naturally Light Tonic and garnish with a lime wheel. BOSTONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RUM SOAKED HISTORY...New England has a long and storied history of rum production that dates back to the 1700s. At its peak, roughly sixty distilleries operated in the Bay State alone. Revitalizing this history are the Willis Brothers, Will and Dave, owners of the craft distillery Bully Boy Distillers. BOSTON BULLY BOSTON RUM grew out of the brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; desire to resurrect the city of Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous distillation days of yore. This bold flavored rum is made with a mixture of blackstrap molasses which imparts vanilla notes and sweet molasses. It has a cleaner, fruitier flavor of banana and pineapple. It is then aged in bourbon barrels which not only mellow the rum, but also add layers of complexity: think chocolate, vanilla, and oak. The final product has a fruity complexity and a bit of sweetness. Each label on the bottle is hand written telling the batch number and the bottle number of that batch. Petite Planterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Punch: Stir 3 oz Boston Rum, 1.5 oz Tres Agave Agave Nectar, and squeeze juice from fresh lemon and lime. Add crushed ice and 4 dashes of Angostura bitters. Garnish with a mint sprig. STRENGTH IN NUMBERS...Andrew Cabot was a Boston merchant and rum distiller who became one of the most successful American Privateers. When Boston was still part of Her Majestyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s territory and a tax was levied on the Colonistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new favorite spirit of the time, Cabot was known to continued on page 13

Yesterday’s Island/Today’s Nantucket smuggling molasses past British patrols. He was considered a True American when our nation was just beginning. Six generations later, another Andrew Cabot inspired the launch of Privateer Rum. PRIVATEER TRUE AMERICAN RUM “NAVY STRENGTH” is a barrel-proof rum made in Ipswich, MA. It is fermented from 100% Grade A Fancy Molasses at a lower temperature than normal for a more concentrated color and flavor. Double distillation, first through a pot still, then through a column still, makes the final product 110% proof. The seaside aging of this maritime rum in new American oak barrels creates pungent flavors and aromas infused with the spirit of the North Atlantic Ocean. The natural color and flavor in the bottle is a product of spirit, water, oak, and time. “Best ingredients, best practices, never sweetened, and never filtered” is the motto of this luxury rum. Classic Daiquiri: Combine 2 oz. Privateer Rum, 1 oz. fresh lime juice, 1 oz. Tres Agave Agave Nectar in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake hard until properly diluted and chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass. HURRICANE STORM WARNING FLAGS...Traditionally, when the Coast Guard flies hurricane flags, it’s a good idea to stay in port. Hurricane rum, as this spirit is called during a woeful time such as a storm, is said to be rationed to local watering holes during these types of storms. The rum is intended to brace one against the force of any up-

ARA'S TOURS

Vol. 48 No. 15 • YesterdaysIsland.com coming storm. Luckily, we don’t need inclement weather in order to enjoy TRIPLE EIGHT HURRICANE RUM. This unique rum is produced by sourcing rums from different distilleries around the world, including Central America, the Caribbean and Florida. The rums are brought to Nantucket in order to blend and mature here like any good “washashore.” During this maturation process, Nantucket’s ocean air plays an integral roll in the final product with influence from the polar air mass the nearby Gulf Stream. The rum is matured in different types of barrels with the rum program concentrating on the art of blending for its final product. The cask strength rum is diluted with pure Nantucket water from the island’s clean sole source aquifer to 88.8 proof (44.4% alcohol by volume). Notes of caramel and baking spices, followed by a butterscotch toffee flavor and a rich sherry finish. D’ACK and Stormy: Pour 2 ounces Hurricane Rum over ice in a tall glass, add 4 ounces of Barritt’s Ginger Beer. Gently stir. Squeeze in a lime wedge. Differing sources, varied uses of barrels for aging, and local environmental influences of maturation all have an integral role in process of rum production. One can only hope that Hemingway, an avid rum connoisseur himself, would have been proud of the current state of rum in the United States. Cheers to that!

Town Walks

Lochtefeld • 4 Fair Street 508-228-0604 This island gallery is just a few steps off of Main Street, around the corner from Murray’s Toggery Shop, across from the lovely Fair Street Park and features fine prints, drawings, paintings and sculptures by John Lochtefeld. His work with elements of fantasy and fairy tale has captured the imagination of his collectors for more than 50 years here on Nantucket. We love his whimsical, detailed prints that depict sea creatures, ships, and Nantucket, and the interplay of color and shapes in his paintings. Nantucket Carving & Folk Art 167 Orange Street • Nantucketcarvingandfolkart.com You’ve seen the work of Paul McCarthy and Jean Petty all around town in the beautiful quarterboards and signs of Nantucket. But their work goes far beyond the commercial: in this gallery, slightly out of town, you can see the exquisite carvings of master woodcarver McCarthy and the gorgeous folk art paintings by Petty.


by Maryjane Mojer Bartlett’s Ocean View Farm “The most amazing thing about getting to be a grandparent is that the very kids you made so many mistakes on (may have-could have-damaged irreparably) grow up and honor you by trusting you with their babies. Could there be greater grace?” Pure, joyful, noisy chaos. That’s it right now…that’s all there is. I am fortunate that two of my six grandchildren live on island. Right now, however, and for the next solid month, the other four have descended upon Chez MJ, reeking havoc, eating everything in sight, asking a million questions and greeting me every day when I get home from work with tales of the days adventures. Oh, my heart! How truly fortunate am I? As a parent of little ones, the days turn into the nights and back into the days, and it can seem as though sleep never, ever happens. As a grandparent, watching my own children rule the roost is simply amazing. Having my grands in my house, where their Mom grew up, is like springing forward and turning back the clock all at once. The tone of their voices, the curls, paper and crayons and legos all over the place. If I allow myself to drift for a moment, I’m right back with my own kids. The gift that keeps on giving. It’s been a few years since I’ve had both lunch and dinner at the beach, and Friday was the day. I left the Farm at noon and headed home to find that my daughter had already packed the truck with towels and toys. Together we assembled sandwiches and snacks, loaded up the coolers and headed out. Finding a cousin or two to meet up with is an easy task for us, and were joined at the beach by my niece and her three kids. The adults were seriously outnumbered. We’d been in the water for a couple of hours when Eli, who is three, waded continued on page 26

over to show me a creature he found. A quahog the size of my fist. He had kicked it with his toe, and picked it up thinking it was a rock. Within a few minutes, we had a solid dozen in a bucket and a plan for Saturday night supper. I’ve found that it’s helpful, especially when introducing new, really different food to kids, planning a meal that includes hands on favorites takes the focus (and pressure) off of the kids to have to eat something that they really may not like. Quahogs can be a little intimidating. These were honkers, and to the inexperienced eye, not really appealing. We settled on grilled pizza, Caesar Salad, and Quahog Cakes. Initially we planned on stuffed quahogs, but the shells were too beautiful and quickly became part of their summer collection!

GRILLED PIZZA I love this dough recipe. It comes together very quickly, is easy to work with and grills up beautifully. It can easily be made by hand, but I find that a mixer with a dough hook kneads it a bit longer and improves the texture. 1-1/2 cups warm water 2 packets active dry yeast 1 tablespoon sugar 1/4 cup EVOO 2 teaspoons fresh herbs, finely chopped 4 cups all purpose flour 2 teaspoons kosher salt If I’m making this for grown ups, I’ll often add a couple of grinds of cracked black pepper to the dough, and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Pour warm water into the bowl of a mixer, fitted with a dough hook. Add yeast and sugar, and let sit for about five minutes. Whisk oil and herbs in to water yeast mixture. Add flour and salt. Mix until well blended and a ball forms on the dough hook. Lightly flour your work surface, scrape the dough out and divide into 8 pieces. Using lightly floured hands, round up each piece continued on page 27

and set aside, letting rest for about an hour. Preheat your grill, and the hotter the better. Mine will crank up to about 500 degrees when closed. Creating toppings for grilled pizza is not much different than taco night toppings: cheese, diced tomatoes, onions, more cheese. It’s also a great time to add the bits and pieces that have accumulated in the fridge over a few days. Leftover bacon, sausage, a small piece of chicken. Slivers of green beans, broccoli florets. The great thing about this dough is, that when its relaxed for an hour, it can be patted out very easily instead of rolling it out. That said, kids see dough and they want rolling pins, so it certainly is an option! We roll or pat the dough on a floured surface, and a grown up will place the dough on the oiled grill surface. Let it sit for about two minutes, turn a quarter turn and close the lid. After one minute, open the lid and flip the dough over. If the kids are a bit older (and tall enough) they can carefully top the pizza at this point. Otherwise, the littles can make a bowl full of their favorite toppings and a grown up can add them. After the pizza is flipped and topped, close the lid and let cook for about three to four minutes. Remove from the grill, cut, cool and serve. I’ve also used my pizza stone on the grill. It works great, there’s no flipping, and it yields a great, crunchy, pizzeria texture. I’m a big fan of grill marks, though, and love the light charring of the dough when cooked directly over the fire. There are as many recipes for Caesar and dressings as there are cooks, and I’m sure you have one you love. When getting kids involved in cooking and meal prep, simple and easy beats over thought and complicated every time. A salad where tearing the lettuce for little hands equals success is a winner.

QUAHOG CAKES This was an on the fly creation,. My prep cooks were 3, 5 (and a half) and 9, so we had a range of skill levels. Though Abe, 9, has some basic knife skills, my kitchen is small and the proximity of knife and a 3 year old was not safe. But…a grater and an onion accomplished the task. Rosie, 5 (and a half) is great at measuring (and precise! This girl is not a pinch of this a dash of that kind of cook. A baker at heart!) Eli, 3, is a really excontinued on page 28

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.
