Live Art Auction October 1st at the Sawyer Free Library! Preview Party at 6:00pm

Wednesday evening at 7 PM on the main floor of the Sawyer Free Library, 70 pieces of local art will be up for bid during the Annual Sawyer Free Library Art Auction. The auction has been a major library event for nearly 20 years, supporting programming, student art scholarships, and museum passes as well as art book, periodicals and DVD purchases.

The evening begins at 6 PM with a preview reception on the main floor, followed by the live auction at 7PM. Once again Jack Good, current President of the Essex National Heritage Commission, will be the auctioneer. Many generous local artists donate each year to this festive event. Just a few of the 70 artists represented include David Curtis, Jeff Weaver, Paul Frontiero, Don Gorvette, Ray Crane, Peter Tysver, Bob Blue, Theresa Wonson, Margaret Laurie, Mary Rhinelander, Susie Field, Fred Kepler, Brenda Malloy, Coco Berkman, Bob Blue, Paul George, Sinikka Nogelo and Kate Nordstrom, Allen Sloane.

Featured this year is a painting by the late Margaret Laurie donated by her daughter Jeannine Lynch; a painting donated by the widow of the late Bob Blue and a seascape painting by the late Paul Frontiero donated by his son Paul Frontiero Jr.

The auction is a win-win for all. It’s an opportunity to support local artists, purchase quality art at affordable prices, and support the interests of the community and its library.

Thank You!

moolongz thank you

I just want to thank all of you who backed my I See Moolongz Kickstarter campaign, and those who didn’t but came to the backer reward and book launch party on Saturday (some of you who I haven’t seen for years came all the way up from East Boston – go Eastie!). It was a great turnout for the book launch party and Spontaneous Collaboration exhibit, and everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves. Thanks especially to Brenda Malloy who kept me organized during the book signing. Any of you who did not get to come to the party and pick up your rewards, they are on their way to you by mail. This is such an amazing community! Thank you all so much. Love, EJ

James and Anna can use our help

cape ann giclee_chase grant

Any of you who know James and Anna at Cape Ann Giclee know that they are wonderful, knowledgeable and talented people who provide excellent services that we are very lucky to have here in Gloucester.

They have applied for the Chase Mission Main Street small business grant. Chase will award 20 small businesses with a $150,000 grant. The first step of the process is to get 250 votes on their website, voting is done through Facebook sign ins. After that all businesses who receive 250 votes submit a questionnaire about their business, community involvement, what they would do with the money and then, based on the answers, Chase awards the grant.

They entered the competition for the grant because, like most small businesses, $150,000 would help them out a lot and allow them to do some of the things right now that they thought they would have to wait years to do. If they win the grant, the first thing they would do is buy a Cruse scanner which is a large format museum grade scanner that would allow them to scan artwork up to 4 feet by 8 feet in one pass, as well as manuscripts, textiles, negatives and delicate objects. They would be able to offer artists, photographers, museums, and whoever else wanted, high quality scanning for less than they charge now and with quicker turn around times. Another area they would invest in is some AV equipment so that they could do workshops and seminars in the studio with really high quality monitor screens and projectors. New lighting to show off artwork on the walls would be on the list as well. And as most people who have talked to them about promoting art on Cape Ann know, they would really love to have some sort of regular art market, fashioned roughly after SOWA Sundays, here on Cape Ann and this grant would allow them to be a sponsor and make that become a reality. They would also upgrade some computers, add some printers, software and upgrade their bookkeeping system.

It would be great if people could help them out by going to their link at the Chase grant site and voting for them – they need to get 250 votes to even be considered for the grant. You can find the link on the Chase Mission Main Street website at https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/business/detail/40531 – vote, and then share it with your artist and photographer friends.

Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay

Last Thursday it was great fun to see the game at Fenway. Red Sox beating Tampa Bay 11-1…Sox getting 16 hits and scoring all those runs with a lineup of mostly young players that may well be part of the future for the Sox. It was a surprise to see the park nearly full with fans having a great time after the season we have had. Two of the youngsters got their first major league home runs, with Castillo just missing his second by about a foot high off the monster, and Vazquez adding three other hits to go 4 for 4 at the plate. We even saw Koji looking like last year closing out the game. In all there were seven rookies in the game. It was just a fun night!

Sista’s Favorite Kitchen Gadget of the week

IMG_2699

Silicone Omelet Mold by Le’Kue’

 

Silicone Omelet mold by Le’Kue’, is quite handy during the early morning rush of getting son BJ and husband Barry out the door on time to beat the rout 128 traffic.  At the start of this school year I began fixing BJ and St. Barry “to go” breakfast wraps per their request.  This morning ritual of preparing a hot “to go” breakfast, followed by the quick ‘kiss, kiss, have a good day, here is your warm breakfast, enjoy, wave goodbye close the door,” left me with the not so joyful sink of dirty cooking equipment each morning.

Two weeks ago while washing at the sink, a flash back of a microwave cooking demonstration I attended with my mother, back in the day when Microwaves were the new “Must Have” Kitchen Gadget of the times. The fast, no fuss little mess style cooking revolutionized kitchen around the world. 

IMG_2369

I remembered watching scrabbled eggs cook in a glass Pyrex liquid measuring cup quickly, effortlessly, and with little mess within minute’s right in the aisle of the appliance store. The very next morning, happened to be a Saturday, and I decided to replicate that same microwave egg demonstration to son BJ. He thought it was a genius approach of cooking fast with little mess to clean, and was happy with the results. For the next several days their “to go” breakfast wraps and sandwiches were prepared in this fashion, until I scored this nifty silicone omelet gadget made by Le’Kue’ on clearance for $8.00 in Marshalls the other day. This Silicone Omelet mold by Le’Kue’ has definitely made my morning job of fixing a hot “To Go” breakfast for my boys a lot faster and easier. I definitely give this kitchen gadget a two thumbs up for the ease of preparing eggs in an omelet style via the microwave.  

*Note~ Our fist omelet was prepared following the manufactures instructions, of whisking ingredients together before pouring into the silicone mold, but that process resulted in 3 things to clean measuring cup, whisking tool, and silicon mold. I shorten the cleaning item list to 2 by add and whisking all ingredients together in the silicone mold itself just prior to cooking. 

If you like omelet style eggs and find your morning too busy to deal with “cooking” that requires your undivided attention so you don’t burn the house down, find yourself a Le’Kue’ Omelete mold Stat!

CORRECTION! Poll:QUESTION 2: Law Proposed by Initiative Petition Expanding the Beverage Container Deposit Law

HUGE EDIT and MISTAKE BY ME- NOT A PROPOSED MINIMUM 5 CENT HIKE EVERY 5 YEARS

I love everything about the expansion of the bottle bill to include sports beverages, juice drinks and water bottles EXCEPT this little nugget that the people aren’t talking about-

The proposed law would require the state Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) to adjust the container deposit amount every five years to reflect (to the nearest whole cent) changes in the consumer price index, but the value could not be set below five cents.

Read through the summary and vote in the poll at the bottom of the post.

Here it is from the State Of Mass Website-

QUESTION 2: Law Proposed by Initiative Petition

Expanding the Beverage Container Deposit Law

Do you approve of a law summarized below, on which no vote was taken by the Senate or the House of Representatives on or before May 6, 2014?

SUMMARY

This proposed law would expand the state’s beverage container deposit law, also known as the Bottle Bill, to require deposits on containers for all non-alcoholic non-carbonated drinks in liquid form intended for human consumption, except beverages primarily derived from dairy products, infant formula, and FDA approved medicines. The proposed law would not cover containers made of paper-based biodegradable material and aseptic multi-material packages such as juice boxes or pouches.

The proposed law would require the state Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) to adjust the container deposit amount every five years to reflect (to the nearest whole cent) changes in the consumer price index, but the value could not be set below five cents.

The proposed law would increase the minimum handling fee that beverage distributors must pay dealers for each properly returned empty beverage container, which was 2¼ cents as of September 2013, to 3½ cents. It would also increase the minimum handling fee that bottlers must pay distributors and dealers for each properly returned empty reusable beverage container, which was 1 cent as of September 2013, to 3½ cents. The Secretary of EEA would review the fee amounts every five years and make appropriate adjustments to reflect changes in the consumer price index as well as changes in the costs incurred by redemption centers. The proposed law defines a redemption center as any business whose primary purpose is the redemption of beverage containers and that is not ancillary to any other business.

The proposed law would direct the Secretary of EEA to issue regulations allowing small dealers to seek exemptions from accepting empty deposit containers. The proposed law would define small dealer as any person or business, including the operator of a vending machine, who sells beverages in beverage containers to consumers, with a contiguous retail space of 3,000 square feet or less, excluding office and stock room space; and fewer than four locations under the same ownership in the Commonwealth. The proposed law would require that the regulations consider at least the health, safety, and convenience of the public, including the distribution of dealers and redemption centers by population or by distance or both.

The proposed law would set up a state Clean Environment Fund to receive certain unclaimed container deposits. The Fund would be used, subject to appropriation by the state Legislature, to support programs such as the proper management of solid waste, water resource protection, parkland, urban forestry, air quality and climate protection.

The proposed law would allow a dealer, distributor, redemption center or bottler to refuse to accept any beverage container that is not marked as being refundable in Massachusetts.

The proposed law would take effect on April 22, 2015.

A YES VOTE would expand the state’s beverage container deposit law to require deposits on containers for all non-alcoholic, non-carbonated drinks with certain exceptions, increase the associated handling fees, and make other changes to the law.

A NO VOTE would make no change in the laws regarding beverage container deposits.


ARGUMENTS
As provided by law, the 150-word arguments are written by proponents and opponents of each question, and reflect their opinions. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not endorse these arguments, and does not certify the truth or accuracy of any statement made in these arguments. The names of the individuals and organizations who wrote each argument, and any written comments by others about each argument, are on file in the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth.

IN FAVOR: A YES vote will improve the “Bottle Bill,” where consumers put down a refundable nickel deposit on a beer or soda. People get the nickel back when they return the container. A YES vote will extend this program to cover other beverages such as bottled water.

The Bottle Bill works: 80% of beer and soda containers get recycled. Only 23% of non-deposit containers do. So every year a billion bottles get tossed away, often on playgrounds, roads and beaches. Communities have to pay to clean them up.

A YES vote equals more recycling, less trash and litter, and big savings for towns’ waste management costs. That’s why this idea has been endorsed by 209 of our cities and towns, as well as Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick, former Republican Gov. Mitt Romney, 350 business leaders, and independent groups like the League of Women Voters, MASSPIRG, Sierra Club and hundreds more.

AGAINST: Massachusetts should be a recycling leader, but Question 2 will keep us in the past. Ninety percent of households now have access to curbside and community recycling programs. Let’s focus on what works instead of expanding an outdated, ineffective, and inconvenient system.

Everyone wants to increase recycling rates—but expanded forced deposits are the wrong approach.

Question 2 would:

• cost nearly $60 million a year, more than three times the price of curbside programs (while increasing recycling rates by less than 1 percent);

• waste taxpayer dollars on expanding an uneconomical, 30-year-old system;

• raise your nickel deposit and additional fees every five years—without your vote.

Today, more than $30 million of your unclaimed nickels go into the state’s general fund and into the hands of politicians – not to environmental programs. Let’s stop throwing money at an inefficient system and invest in modern recycling technology.

Vote NO on Question 2.

Downtown Gloucester, 2017

The future is something we ignore at our, and especially their, peril. There are aspects of it we can control and lots more we can’t.  But while it makes sense to remain optimistic, being delusional is another thing entirely. So with that in mind, I feel that it is the responsibility of The Clam to point out that, regardless of how we got here and who’s to blame for…
