MOVIE Finding Saroo Lion movingly depicts one lost childâ€™s quest for home
ach year in India, we are told at the very end of Garth Davisâ€™ much-lauded 2016 movie Lion, some 80,000 children go missing. The film traces the improbable odyssey of just one of them: Saroo Brierley, author of the 2013 autobiography A Long Way Home. The story that it tells could be described with arguable accuracy as either unoriginal or classic. But in terms of cinematic execution, thereâ€™s no denying that Lion is stunning. If youâ€™re the sort who ever cries at movies, bring a pocketful of tissues: You will need them. Saroo (Sunny Pawar) is only five years old when he becomes separated from his elder brother Guddu (Abhishek Bharate)
Lion's Saroo is played by Sunny Pawar (above) and Dev Patel (below)

in a train station where the two had gone at night to scavenge fallen coins, food scraps and tradable debris to help support their impoverished family, who live on the outskirts of the town of Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh. Falling asleep on a decommissioned train while waiting for Guddu to come back for him, Saroo wakes to find himself locked into the car for days while it carries him more than 900 miles to a railway station in Kolkata. Everyone there speaks Bengali, Saroo only Hindi. He doesnâ€™t even know his surname, and mangles the name of his home village when he seeks to return. Through a combination of coincidence, fleet-footedness, good inner radar and general resourcefulness, the lad escapes some of the ever-present dangers of the
teeming metropolis, where street kids are lucky to have a piece of cardboard to sleep on while they dodge gangs of child sex traffickers. Eventually he ends up in an orphanage, which one of his fellow inmates truthfully tells him is â€œa bad place.â€? After the authoritiesâ€™ halfhearted search for his birth family fails, Saroo is packed off to Tasmania to live with a kind and supportive Aussie family (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham). Fast-forward a couple of decades, and feisty little Saroo is now a charming young man (Dev Patel) who has bonded well with his adoptive parents. He is protective of his younger brother Mantosh (Divian Ladwa), another Indian lost boy who has not adapted quite so well to his new life.

go until the very end. Most of the credit must go to the actors. Patel is a marvel, utterly convincing in both the intensity of his personal quest and the sincerity of his empathy for others. His scenes with Kidman are terrific, conveying gratitude and trust, turmoil and estrangement all at once. Itâ€™s made abundantly clear that this is a young man with two real mothers. Rooney Mara does a fine, witty job with a skimpy role as Sarooâ€™s college girlfriend, who wants to help but ultimately has to let him find his own way. But most impressive of all is the Mumbai native Sunny Pawar, who reportedly never even saw a Western movie before this one, and yet blazes across the first third of the film like a comet. Heâ€™s a natural actor if there ever was one. If there is any justice in the world, Lion should propel him into a long and distinguished screen career. Also deserving special mention is cinematographer Greig Fraser. Every scene is beautifully framed and lit, and he uses overhead photography abundantly in a way that makes the spirit soar as it transports the viewer seamlessly from Google Earth Street View to the real world and back again.

s noted in last weekâ€™s preview of the County Playersâ€™ new stage production of Amadeus, currently running in Wappingers Falls, it will always be a good time for a revival of Peter Shafferâ€™s Tony Award-winning 1979 drama, so long as nearly all of us have more in common with Salieri than with Mozart â€“ which is to say, forever. Each of us has our talents, and with a little luck and a lot of diligence, will meet at least a few people in our lifetimes who will appreciate them. But once in a great while, along comes a born genius who blows us all out of the water. When said genius is also a vacuous fool or an amoral wastrel whose behavior does not merit the level of rewards that his or her singular gift ensures, we mere mortals may be forgiven for sympathizing with Antonio Salieriâ€™s fantasies of vengeance, or at least poetic justice. Thatâ€™s why the obsessively envious Salieri, and not his titular bĂŞte noire with the hideously annoying laugh and the peerless compositional brilliance, is the protagonist of Amadeus. Shaffer got it right: The mediocre human is audiencesâ€™ way into understanding this story. And thatâ€™s also why casting the part of Salieri is key to a successful production of the play. Right now, the National Theater of London is experimenting with a casting choice that inevitably introduces a novel racial dynamic to the rivalry between the two composers: Lucian Msamati, who was born in London of Tanzanian parents and raised in Zimbabwe, where he co-founded the acclaimed Over the Edge Theatre Company in 1994. American audiences will recognize Msamatiâ€™s face mainly from his recurring appearances as the pirate Salladhor Saan in HBOâ€™s Game of Thrones, but he also bears the distinction of being the first black actor ever cast as Iago in Othello by the Royal Shakespeare Company. That interesting choice must have worked, because now heâ€™s wowing the British critics with his â€œaltogether splendid,â€? â€œsuperb,â€? â€œexcellentâ€? turn as Salieri for the National. Also distinguishing this new production is the decision to put a full orchestra onstage, the Southbank Sinfonia. Not since MiloĹĄ Formanâ€™s 1984 film version of Amadeus have audiences been thus able to experience the palpable sense of being surrounded, elevated and pummeled by Mozartâ€™s sublime music as does his rival. Luckily for us on this side of the Pond, Amadeus is being simulcast live from the National Theater of London on Saturday, February 18 and Sunday, February 26 at Time and Space, Ltd. (TSL) in Hudson, both days at 1 p.m. Tickets cost $20 general admission, $18 for TSL members and $15 for students. TSL is located at 434 Columbia Street in Hudson; for more info, call (518) 822-8100 or visit http://timeandspace.org. Rebroadcasts of the National Theater of Londonâ€™s Amadeus will be also coming to Upstate Films in Rhinebeck on Wednesday, March 15 and to the Rosendale Theatre on Sunday, March 26.

living while tossed in a restless sea of anonymity is most people’s daily fare. Coastal Tasmania, by powerful contrast, is presented as so spectacular and restful to the eye that you’ll want to move there immediately. But you’ll also understand why Saroo Brierley feels compelled to knit these two disparate halves of his existence back together. You still have a couple of weeks to catch Lion before Oscar night. Find out for yourself why it’s on so many awards lists this year. And don’t forget the Kleenex. – Frances Marion Platt
Reminder of our rights Rosendale Theatre recreates Norman Corwin’s We Hold These Truths onstage on Sunday
Norman Corwin at his Wellworth Avenue apartment in Los Angeles, 1973
orman Corwin, who died in 2011 at the age of 101, was one of the most influential creative forces of the Golden Age of Radio. Starting out as a newspaperman, he made the transition to radio journalism in the early 1930s, hosting poetry programs and writing scripts for dramas that addressed contemporary social issues. He rose to fame during World War II by producing a series of documentaries that included An American in England (a collaboration with Edward R. Murrow), On a Note of Triumph and Fourteen August. After the war, Corwin traveled the world creating broadcasts for the United Nations, until McCarthyism drove him
out of the radio medium and into writing for the screen and stage. His 1956 film adaptation of Lust for Life, Irving Stone’s 1934 novel about Vincent Van Gogh, garnered him an Oscar nomination; and Ray Bradbury is said to have credited Corwin with the publication in 1950 of a collection of his short stories as The Martian Chronicles, now regarded as a classic of the science fiction genre. But the project that truly made Corwin’s career was We Hold These Truths, a radio play that he wrote, produced and directed, commissioned by the US Office of Education to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Bill of Rights. It was scheduled to air on December 15, 1941, followed by an address to the nation by president Franklin D. Roosevelt. Galvanized by the attack on Pearl Harbor that had coincidentally occurred one week earlier, some 63 million listeners tuned in: almost half of the US population at the time, and the largest audience in history for a dramatic performance. The show won Corwin his first Peabody Award. The Rosendale Theatre’s resident acting company, which has already wowed audiences with its spirited “live radio” performances of It’s a Wonderful Life and Vintage Hitchcock, will bring We Hold These Truths back to life at 3 p.m. on Sunday, February 19. The cast includes Sophia Skiles, Molly Parker Myers, Claudia Brown, Carol Fox Prescott and Joanna Rotte, with vocals by Machan Taylor and the brilliant sound effects work of percussion goddess Fre Atlast. Ann Citron directs. Best of all, admission is free. The Rosendale Theatre is located at 408 Main Street (Route 213) in Rosendale. It’s handicapped-accessible and has ample free parking in the rear.

biographer Tony Fletcher in Woodstock Mount Tremper’s (and Great Britain’s) Tony Fletcher tells rock stories. He has penned definitive or competing biographies of the Smiths, REM, Keith Moon, Echo and the Bunnymen, the Clash and more. He also tells rock stories with his occasional Catskills allstar cover band, the Catskill 45s. His storytelling habit began with the founding of a teen fanzine that went viral before we called it that. That ’zine (before we called them that), Jamming, was originally inspired by and devoted to the music of the Jam and the punk and New Wave revolution in the London of the ’70s. Fletcher tells his own story, synched to the musical and political upheaval of the ’70s, in his delightful 2013 memoir Boy about Town. Now Fletcher trains his lens back on
his adopted continent, returning with In the Midnight Hour: The Life & Soul of Wilson Pickett (Oxford University Press, January 2017). A compelling and essential figure in American music, Pickett’s music as well as his turbulent life give this veteran and deceptively breezy writer plenty to work with. Fletcher will read from In the Midnight Hour on Saturday, February 18 at 5 p.m. at the Golden Notebook, located at 29 Tinker Street in Woodstock.

At 63, former co-frontperson of the seminal California punk band X John Doe now looks and sounds the part of the dark-but-tender American roots bard. On his dusty, intimate 2016 album The Westerner, the transformation is complete – except of course that it is really no transformation at all. While X might have been most known for a uniquely stuttering, fashionably sleazy and occasionally strident take on punk aggression, they were always the most uniquely Americana expression of the universal punk impulse. Rockabilly, Southwestern and country modes account for a lot of X’s very best songs: Doe’s songs, supported eloquently by the roots authenticity of guitarist Billy Zoom. Debbie Harry and Chan Marshall (Cat Power) cameo on The Westerner, but the

In 2015, the legendary Native American singer/songwriter Buffy SainteMarie released a fabulous hybrid traditional/electro effort, Power in the Blood. It finds the artist refreshed, engaged and at the top of her formidable game. Its modern production elements hardly feel forced or gratuitous, but rather ominous and completely integrated into Sainte-Marie’s powerfully organic spiritual/political urgency. Buffy Sainte-Marie performs at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock on Friday, February 24 at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $35 for Gold Circle, $30 for reserved seated and $20 for general admission. For tickets and additional information, visit www.bearsvilletheater.com. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock. – John Burdick

HISTORY separated from her mother. Her life as a slave of the Merritts was “subject to vicissitudes,” according to a newspaper clipping published near the end of her life: “Her mistress was subject to the drink habit and would become intoxicated sometimes but did not treat her unkindly.” The anonymous author also tells of how, as a girl of maybe ten, Judy was terrified to witness a troop of soldiers marching down a road during “the second war with England”: the War of 1812. Later, she told the reporter how she witnessed her master, who was a Tory, meeting with a group of “Indians” who she came to believe were acting as spies on behalf of the British. At the age of 14, Judy was presented as a “wedding gift” from Philip Lefevre to his son Andries and his son's future wife, Magdalene Elting. She remained a slave of the Lefevres until she was in her 20s, when she was freed by state edict in 1827. Aunt Judy eventually married Tom Jackson and lived with him in Clintondale until his death. She ended her days as a resident of Mulberry Street in New Paltz, where she opened up her home for prayer meetings and to visitors eager to hear her stories. She died at her home at the age of 98. Unfortunately, precious few of Aunt Judy Jackson’s stories have survived the years. That sad fact, according to StessinCohn, is both typical of the times and all the more reason to remember a woman who was born a slave and became a beloved member of a community whose ancestors had once treated her as chattel. Aunt Judy Jackson’s memory will be memorialized by town and village officials at a ceremony scheduled for Sunday, February 26 at 12 noon at Hasbrouck Park in New Paltz. For more information, call (845) 255-255 2351. – Jeremiah Horrigan
The 24-hour Zine Challenge in New Paltz
COURTESY OF KATIA AND JOHN JACOBS' PERSONAL COLLECTION
Portrait of Julia “Judy” Jackson, often called “Aunt Judy,” circa 1892 in Clintondale.
Witness to history New Paltz to honor memory of former slave, “Aunt Judy ” Jackson
ake a moment, if you will, and look at the face of Julia “Judy” Jackson. It’s a rarity, in many more ways than one. The photo was taken in 1892, or thereabouts. The caption on the back of this photo reads “Aunt Judy Lefevre, slave of Andries Lefevre.” It’s one of maybe three photos of people born into slavery that you’ll find in the region’s historical archive. There’s no one alive today who can tell
you what Aunt Judy’s life was like. But she left a mark on the historical record – one that New Paltz town historian Susan Stessin-Cohn has mined from obituaries and old newspaper accounts; a history that she and town and village officials will memorialize at the end of this month, which is of course Black History Month. By the time the photo was taken, Aunt Judy had long escaped slavery; she was by then a respected member of the New Paltz community, known everywhere for her
keen memory of a century that was rapidly disappearing. Scraps of historical records that Stessin-Cohn has pieced together tell a tale that may be unimaginable today, but was unremarkable in her day. Aunt Judy was born near the beginning of the 19 th century; nobody knows exactly when. She was two years old when she and her mother were sold to the Jeremiah Merritt family on land that now encompasses the Ulster County Fairgrounds. At the age of 11, she was
A collaboration between the SUNY-New Paltz Zine Library and Lagusta’s Luscious Commissary, the 24-hour Zine Challenge takes over the lobby of the Sojourner Truth Library on Friday, February 17 and runs through Sunday, the 19th. The event offers participants a chance to see the process of zine publishing through from concept to artifact in the space of a single weekend. Typically personal and handcrafted in nature, Zines are a form of alternative micro-publishing that gained enormous popularity in the early 2000s, ultimately attracting the kind of serious attention that has resulted in the New Paltz collection. A zine-making workshop and open studio will take place in the Sojourner Truth Library lobby on Friday from 5 to 6 p.m. Zine librarians and the Zine Library intern will offer a workshop on how to create a zine. From 6 to 9 p.m., there will be an open studio with plenty of supplies and folks on hand to assist with layout and formatting questions. On Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m., participants can return to the Sojourner Truth lobby to drop off completed zines for photocopying. On Sunday, the weekend will wrap up with a 7-to-9 p.m. zine-reading event at Lagusta’s Luscious Commissary, located at 11 Church Street in New Paltz, where authors share and trade zines. Indie bedroom-pop bands Adult Mom and Birdwing will play, and there will be prizes for zin- readers.

TASTE The thickness of the layer of jelly seems to have been an important attribute of a good Washington Cake. In a story in Student and Schoolmate magazine (Boston, 1869), one of the characters says that the piece he ate “would have been well enough, only I like the jelly thick, and that jelly was thin.” A few recipes in Godey’s Lady’s Book (1870) and Housekeeping
There was a Madison Cake, a Tyler Pudding and even a Jackson Jumble. But much like the man himself, none of those desserts became as popular as Washington Cake and Washington Pie.
SHARYN FLANAGAN | ALMANAC WEEKLY th
Writer and ﬁrst-time piemaker Sharyn Flanagan’s attempt at creating an authentic 19 -century Washington Pie using applesauce spice cake soaked in rum with raisins and walnuts in a piecrust. The verdict? “Interesting taste sensation having cake and piecrust in the same bite, but my pie is way too dry. I should have soaked the cake more, and I didn’t have enough piecrust to fully cover the top. With a good ladle of Crème Anglaise, however, it might taste pretty good.”
The desserts of democracy Celebrate Presidents’ Day with Washington Cake or Washington Pie
mericans have been celebrating George Washington’s birthday on February 22 since the centennial of his birth, when nationwide festivities marked the occasion. (Adopted as a federal holiday in 1885, the date is still officially considered “Washington’s Birth-

day” by the federal government, even though we now observe the all-purpose Presidents’ Day instead.) Admiration for Washington’s legacy, along with a patriotic frame of mind in general in the early 19th century, created a trend at the time of people naming desserts after the presidents. There was a Madison Cake, a Tyler Pudding and even a Jackson Jumble (a sugary cake made with sour cream and brandy). But much like the man himself, none of those desserts reached the height of popularity that Washington Cake and Washington Pie did. Washington Cake was a round layer cake of sponge or poundcake with jelly or cream between the layers (pretty much the same
thing as a jelly cake or Boston cream pie). Mrs. Putnam’s Recipe Book, published in 1850, gave directions to “let the cake cool, then spread marmalade or any other jelly over the cake in a layer as thick as the cake, then cover it with another cake.” The whole thing was finished off with a dusting of confectioners’ sugar. According to Mrs. Bliss’s Practical Cookbook of 1850, the recipe for Washington Cake combined butter, sugar and eggs with “one glass of rosewater and one pound of sifted flour. Bake in a shallow circular tin one-half-inch deep. When done, spread a thick layer of raspberry jam or any jelly upon one cake and lay another cake upon the top of the jam. Sift white sugar over the whole.”

in Old Virginia (1879) had applesauce between the layers; and by the 1880s, English cream or chocolate custard was the preferred filling. More intriguing are the ingredients of Washington Pie: a unique confection made by encasing in piecrust a filling made of leftover pieces of cake moistened with flavorings. Washington Pie was usually baked in massive two-and-a-half-footsquare pans, then cut into rectangular pieces to be served. Neither the cake nor the pie seems to have had anything to do with our first president’s actual dessert preferences. “The Washington Pie was so-called by way of paying the highest possible honor to the father of his country,” wrote The Nation: A Weekly Journal, in 1866. A reporter from the Washington Star interviewed a Washington, DC baker in 1898, who said that he’d had “an intimate acquaintance with Washington Pie” since the 1860s, having “made and handled an immense quantity of it… and there was nothing of Washington about it except the name.” The baker described Washington Pie, “properly made,” as consisting of “odds and ends of broken cakes that pile up in bakeshops. They are just as good as if they were whole, but because they are not whole, they are at times unsalable.” The cake pieces were moistened with milk or cream, he added, and raisins and spices thrown in. “There was a pie crust put under and over it and the result was Washington Pie. Now and then some pies that happened to get broken were put into the works, which made Washington Pie toothsome and satisfactory to so many thousands. When it was fresh and hot, it was decidedly good eating.” Washington Pie was served at the nicer hotels and boardinghouses in the Northeast, often topped with a sauce. “There was more of it served than any other pie,” said the baker interviewed by the Washington Star. “There was nothing exclusive about it, for nearly all bakers made it and found a ready sale for it. There were also great quantities of it sold by the bakers in the city markets.” But Washington Pie fell into disrepute during the Civil War, according to the baker, because “certain bakers, in their efforts to produce great quantities of it, were not so very careful as to what it was composed of. Some bakers got to making it out of stale bread and the like.” This viewpoint is backed up by an account in an 1880 Chicago publication in which the author maintained, “The very cheap articles so often met with at the coffee

BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR A PRESIDENT?
here is not an American alive who can remember a time when we didn’t observe Washington’s Birthday, but Washington himself was criticized in his own time for just that by he National Gazette in 1793. That Washington celebrated his 61st birthday while in office heralded monarchical tendencies on the part of the president, it wrote. “Who will deny that the celebrating of birthdays is not a striking feature of royalty? We hear of no such thing during the republic of Rome.” Such remarks may have stung Washington, who is said to have been privately “inflamed” at times when the press questioned his republican principles; but among his many stellar qualities was his staunch support of the First Amendment. Years earlier, in 1783, Washington famously asserted that if free speech were taken away from the nation’s citizens, then “dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the slaughter.” – Sharyn Flanagan
stands and lunch houses in the vicinity of the docks and railroad depots, and known as Washington Pie, railroad cake, etc., are made up chiefly of the refuse and waste material of the bakeries, old and musty cakes, waste fruit, a little spice and much molasses.” Nobody seems to know where, exactly, Washington Cake or Washington Pie was first made. The desserts did find their way to New York by 1898, when the Astor House had them on their menu in New York City. And in the Hudson Valley, Alice J. Hasbrouck, married to a descendant of the Huguenot Street Hasbroucks of New Paltz, features two recipes for Washington Cake in her 1976 cookbook, As Our Ancestors Cooked, published by the Huguenot Historical Society. According to Beth M. Forrest, professor of Liberal Arts at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, “the sheer number” of 19th-century cookbooks that include Washington Cake or Washington Pie indicates that New York women, including those of the Hudson Valley, “would have known about the confection, and likely baked it. The cake also appears on many hotel restaurant menus from Bermuda to Portland, Maine, and Pennsylvania and New Jersey.” The Ellicott Club of Buffalo, New York, she adds, included a dessert called Gateaux George Washington on its menu in 1906. Forrest also notes a recipe found in a 1910 cookbook put out by the Altrurian Club of Troy, New York. In what seems to be a “next-generation” version of the original frugal practice of making Washington Pie by using up leftover or broken pieces of cake, its recipe suggested filling a piecrust with “rich, yellow cake dough, bake, let cool, then cover with blackberry or raspberry jam. Put a heavy meringue on top and place in the oven to brown.” And then there’s the philosophical Washington Cake recipe found by Forrest in the 1911 cookbook, Good Things: Ethical Recipes for Feast Days and Other Days by Isabel Goodhue. She advises combining “four cups of the flour of truthfulness; two cups of the butter of generosity, sweetened with two cups of high ideals; made light with courage and patriotism, flavored with sagacity. Add the fruits of fame and love, and when well-baked, cover with icing and decorate with preserved cherries and cut with a small, silver hatchet.” – Sharyn Flanagan

Executive Order 9066 “Images of Internment” at FDR site
n the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, which led to the incarceration of 120,000 people of Japanese descent, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum will open a new photographic exhibition titled “Images of Internment: The Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II.” The collection of more than 200 photographs includes the work of Dorothea Lange and Ansel Adams. The exhibit opens on February 19 and will be on display in the Library’s William J. vanden Heuvel Gallery through December 31. Regular hours and admission apply. “Images of Internment” begins with a small document-focused display that

It includes the role of first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, who disagreed with FDR’s decision. Visitors then enter the exhibition’s main gallery, where they will encounter over 200 photographs (including some reproduced in dramatically large formats) that provide a visual record of the forced removal of Japanese Americans and their lives inside the restricted world of the remote government camps operated by the War Relocation Authority (WRA). In conjunction with the “Images of Internment” display, the Roosevelt Library is presenting an exhibit of contemporary images by photographer and ceramicist Setsuko Winchester. During 2015-2016, Winchester went on a 16,000-mile journey to visit American locations associated with the incarceration of 120,000 people of Japanese descent during World War II. At each place, she arranged and photographed 120 yellow tea bowls that she made in her Massachusetts studio. Each bowl symbolizes 1000 individuals. Their color, Winchester said, “represents the ‘Yellow Peril,’ as Asians were euphemistically referred to at the time.” “My project may throw light on a discomfiting part of American history,” she said, “but I hope not to condemn or blame, but help gauge where we are in this everevolving experiment we call ‘America.’” For additional information, visit www. fdrlibrary.org or call (800) 337-8474.

By the time you finish reading this paragraph, another child will be diagnosed with cancer...and again...and again...and every two minutes after that. But this time, instead of just letting those two minutes pass by, you can use this information to engage and get your community service on! Thatâ€™s what Cailee Quinn of Shokan did: â€œI have been involved in many organizations which help to raise money for those afflicted with cancer. When
I found out the dynamic surrounding the St. Baldrickâ€™s Foundation, I could not believe that so many selfless people could come together for a cause that I believe so strongly in. These individuals dedicate their time and energies, and all money raised goes directly to childhood cancer research. Having lost family members to this disease, I understand the hardships and sorrow associated with it. My hope is that one day a cure can be found. These children are our future. They and their families deserve every chance and the preservation of hope that they can get.â€? Cailee has co-organized the Storytellers for Hope: St. Baldrickâ€™s and Relay for Life Fundraiser taking place this Sunday, February 19 from 12 noon to 6 p.m. at Twin Lakes Lodge. Bring the kids to this one for 15-minute family photo sessions for only $15, fresh baked goods, hot food, music, raffles, free face-painting; and at 3 p.m., a Cup, Corks & Canvas session begins, the proceeds of which benefit Relay for Life. No appointment is necessary for the photos; just show up,

and a cash bar is open all day. Co-organizer Jessica Baloy of West Hurley, mother to four boys ages 14, 11, 5 and 3, is also excited for families to come out to Storytellers for Hope: “[St. Baldrick’s Ulster County event chair] Gloria Darmanin introduced me to this fundraiser, and it’s always inspiring to see how many people come together to get involved to help. You don’t realize the generosity of people until you reach out, and they go above and beyond! It becomes
contagious because I feel like I’ve obsessed to help as much as I can for these families and children.” What is all of this St. Baldrick’s excitement about, anyway? St. Baldrick’s Day Ulster County happens next month: a family-friendly fundraiser whose signature activity is watching volunteers “brave the shave,” with all proceeds to benefit pediatric cancer research, including support raised this weekend at the Storytellers for Hope pre-fundraiser.

Via Aquarium One, two, three, four, five/Once I caught a fish aliveâ€Ś Sure, itâ€™s winter, but you and your family can still have all kinds of fish fun during frosty February! For example, the Via Aquarium is a new fish facility inside of a shopping mall, with 37 exhibits spread throughout a 25,000-foot space. It includes a fish tunnel called Shark Alley, which is such a blast to walk through as creatures swim above and next to me. And it has jawfish, which are suddenly my favorite because they use their mouths to hold their eggs or move rocks to dig vertical holes in the sand, which they pop into and out of like a Whack-a-Mole game. The fan favorite seems to be the realtime interactive topographical map, where folks create hills and valleys in a sandbox with special lights that constantly update the contour and elevation lines, along with virtual water. My kids enjoyed the touch tanks and feeding a few pellets to the koi. Remember to ask for a free Fish Passport when you go in: These themed booklets offer prompts and questions for young people to engage with the exhibits as they search for answers and stamp machines around the aquarium. Via Aquariumâ€™s location, spacious layout and modest size make it the

perfect destination for locals with littles to visit regularly â€“ especially with Season Passport perks, which include free express admission, special events and discounts for guests and at the aquarium gift shop. Older children will move through the aquarium exhibits more quickly, but donâ€™t be surprised when your tweens and teens get caught up in that topographical sand exhibit. Tickets are good for the entire day, so families can come and go to shop, eat at the food court, catch a movie or even play with the coin-operated remote-control boats in the fountain area down the hall. For anyone traveling from a distance to check out the aquarium, I recommend filling out your day with a visit to miSci: The Museum of Innovation and Science (www.schenectadymuseum.org) or Proctorâ€™s (www.proctors.org) or the New York State Museum in Albany (www.nysm. nysed.gov). And when Iâ€™m in Schenectady, my familyâ€™s routine includes Perrecaâ€™s Italian Bakery (www.perrecasbakery.com), Tough Traveler bags (www.toughtraveler. com) and the Open Door Bookstore (www. opendoor-bookstore.com).

How the media misplayed the sky Last Friday’s worst-ever journalism
ately, the media have received misplaced criticism. But deserved or not, they’re under a microscope. Are they accurate, or do they exaggerate? This issue can also apply to science journalism, and it all came to a head last Friday, February 10. More than one website had the headline: “Friday night spectacle: See an eclipse, Full Moon and comet all at the same time!” The New York Times’ headline was similar: “Lunar Eclipse and Green Comet Make for a Busy Night in the Sky.” That certainly sounded cool. If I loved astronomy (which I do), I’d certainly take a look. But in truth, nothing special was visible that night. Yes, it was the Full Moon, but we have one of those every month. Does the Full Moon truly count as a spectacle? And yes, there was a lunar eclipse that night. But it was a penumbral eclipse. That’s when the Moon only ventures into Earth’s skimpy outer shadow and barely changes its appearance. Most people looking at the Full Moon at that time would think it still looks like a Full Moon, not an eclipsed Moon. And yes, a comet was technically visible – but only through telescopes: not to the naked eye, and especially not from city skies. This is Comet 45 P, which at magnitude eight was hidden by the brilliance of the Full Moon, even if the observer used good binoculars. As for that headlined green color, it would only show up using long-exposure photography. The actual New York Times story more or less said all this, and contradicted its own excited headline. Nonetheless, the story exaggerated: “Observers will have a hard time seeing this comet without a telescope,” it said. In truth, observers wouldn’t merely have a “hard time.” The comet was hopelessly invisible to the unaided eye, and would have been invisible even if the observer lived far from city lights, like here in the Catskill Park. At magnitude 8.2 it was seven times fainter than the very dimmest stars, marginally visible from ideal moonless desert skies. Yet the skies were not moonless; it was the Full Moon. This made the comet invisible even through binoculars! And there was no mention that the comet wouldn’t even be

out until three in the morning, and in a dim part of the dim constellation Hercules. Its location would be tough for even experienced astronomers to locate. Bottom line, if there’s a lesson here, is that it’s better for science journalists to understate rather than exaggerate. Sure, you can create a headline urging people to run out and see a “meteor shower” or a “lunar eclipse.” But if it’s one of the year’s many minor showers, or the lunar eclipse is penumbral, observers will be disappointed. They’ll think there was a mistake, and the last thing science needs is to disappoint people. The public agrees. When I wrote all this a few days ago in my blog at the Old Farmer’s Almanac, we had 577,000 views and some 5,000 likes. I’m convinced that the job of astronomy writers is not just to tell people when to go out, but also when not to bother. Anyway, if you still want to see something dramatic in the sky the next clear evening, just face the west at nightfall – and there’s Venus, at its brightest of the year! And guaranteed, it will be there. No hype. – Bob Berman

No fireworks, waving flags or other fanfare marked this opening; just the whoosh of my trowel scooping potting soil into a seedflat, and then the hushed rattle of seeds in their paper packets. And the Grand Opening was not for a flamboyant, who-can-reap-the-earliest-meal of a vegetable like peas or tomatoes. No, the Grand Opening for the season is rather sedate: I sowed onion seeds in mini-furrows in a seedflat. Why onions? In addition to the fact that I love the flavor of onions, raw and cooked, onions need a long growing season. The summer growing season is cut short because the plants stop growing new leaves to put their energy into swelling up their bulbs when daylengths grow sufficiently long (14 hours long, to be exact). Around here, that happens sometime in May. The more leaves the plants make before then, the bigger the bulbs. Hence my early planting. So I poured about a three-inch depth of potting soil into an 18-by-24-inch plastic tub in which I had drilled drainage holes, and then made seven parallel furrows in the soil, into which I dropped onion seeds. This year I’m growing New York Early, Patterson and Ailsa Craig. (I also sowed leeks in one of the furrows.) After closing up the furrows, I watered, covered the tub with a pane of glass and put the tub on a heating mat set at 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Done. The season has begun. There are so many ways to grow onions. Let me count the ways, some other ways. First, and easiest, is to just plant onion sets: those mini-onions that you can buy to plant as soon as the ground outside warms and dries up a bit. One down side to sets is that the variety selection is very limited – not only limited, but also restricted to so-called “American-type” varieties, which keep very well but are very pungent and not very sweet. Onion sets that are too large – larger than a dime – tend to go to seed. Plants going to seed look very pretty, but don’t make bulbs for eating. Number Two method overcomes one of the limitations of method Number One: Purchase onion plants, which are growing plants, with leaves. The sweet “Europeantypes” – Ailsa Craig, Sweet Spanish and Granex, for example – are available in this form. The plants are grown in fields in the South, and there’s the potential to bring a disease into the garden on these plants. Also, “organic” onion plants might be hard to find. Method Number Three is the most involved (I’ve never tried it): Grow your own onion sets. The trick is to sow the seeds outdoors densely enough so that they bulb up while still small – dime-size. Once bulbs mature, they’re harvested to store for winter, and then planted in spring just like the sets in Method One. Method Number Four is fairly easy, and that is to sow seeds of Evergreen variety onions right in the ground in spring. This variety never forms bulbs, but makes tasty green onions or scallions. It’s also perennial, so any scallions left in the ground will multiply year after year. The down side here is that you don’t get onions for winter. I grow these every year and do get them for winter use also – in my greenhouse. Method Number Five is easiest of all: Grow Egyptian or walking onions. This is another perennial onion. It “walks” by forming bulblets on top of some stalks. The weight of the bulblet pulls down the stalk, and when the bulblets touch ground, they root to make

new plants. The new plants eventually send up bulblet-topped stalks, which likewise bend to the ground, et cetera, et cetera, walking the plants around. To me, Egyptian onions are all hotness with little other flavor. I no longer grow them. I learned of Method Number Six from Jay at Four Winds Farm. Simple enough: Just sow the seeds outdoors as soon as the ground is warm enough and dry enough for a nice seedbed. A nice seedbed is key here, because onions compete very poorly with weeds, and the goal is to get the seeds to germinate as fast as possible. I tried this last year, and the bulbs ended up pretty much the same size as those from the plants that I sowed last February and then transplanted into the garden in April. So I get a wide choice of varieties without having to start the seeds in February. Thanks, Jay. (I’m growing transplants and direct-seeding this year, just to make sure.) My early February onion-sowing date isn’t some magical date. My greenhouse is only minimally heated, making for very slow growth early in the season. Growth picks up as sunlight grows more intense and further warms the greenhouse. A week or more difference in sowing date early in the season doesn’t translate into that much difference in growth near harvest time. The same goes for pea-planting, which is attended by more fanfare than onion-planting. Many gardeners rush to get their pea seeds planted by St. Patrick’s Day, but planting a week later doesn’t delay that harvest by a week – perhaps by a couple of days or by a few hours, depending on the season. And anyway, St. Patrick’s Day might be the traditional date for planting peas in Ireland, but it would be way too early in Maine and way too late in Georgia. I plant peas here in Zone 5 on April 1, give or take a few days. – Lee Reich Any gardening questions?
