JEEPERS PEEPERS MOONWALK ON RAIL TRAIL IN HIGHLAND

Interested in protecting and promoting healthy forests and open spaces? Learn how science-based stewardship can keep Hudson Valley landscapes vital in a special forum being offered by the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies and the Dutchess Land Conservancy. On Saturday, April 12 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., ecologists and conservation experts will provide insight into the threats that our forests and natural areas face – from invasive species and climate change to deer overabundance – and actions that can be taken to preserve the land. A closing roundtable will spotlight how regional sporting and conservation communities can work together to advance common goals. Speakers and topics will include: From Forests to Farms, and Back Again: Land Use Change in the Hudson

People are free to walk the trail on their own, too, as long as they register and pay the admission fee (which benefits the Rail Trail maintenance/promotional fund), but the tours are an opportunity to learn a little more about what’s going on in the wild on the trail and experience some moonlit camaraderie. It’s a family-friendly event, and attendees are asked to bring flashlights. Pets are not allowed nor are scooters or bikes; the moonwalk is for pedestrians only. Following the walk will be light refreshments around a bonfire at the Pavilion. If it looks like rain, or if it’s too cloudy for a moonwalk, the event will be rescheduled to Saturday, April 12.

circumnavigation of the British Isles, English designer Nick Hand set off on his bicycle from Brooklyn and pedaled north along the Hudson River toward its source in the Adirondack Mountains. His leisurely pace suited his simple agenda: to talk to the artists and craftspeople he met along the way. Conversations on the Hudson is a visual record of his 500-mile journey through the hills, mountains and countryside of the Hudson Valley. Hand’s casual approach brings out the best in people, who eagerly open up their studios and workshops and share their personal stories. This one-of-akind collection pairs Hand’s photographs alongside visits to a printer and publisher, a brewer, a stone sculptor, a sheep farmer, a distiller, a maple syrup producer, a boat restorer and a seed librarian: Ken Greene of the Hudson Valley Seed Library. The Hudson Valley Seed Library is located on a small farm in Accord in the scenic Rondout Valley between the Catskill Mountains and the Shawangunk Ridge. The Library offers heirloom and open-pollinated seeds for vegetable, flower and herb varieties. Many of these seeds are produced on their own small farm; the rest are sourced from other local farmers, farmers in other regions and from trustworthy wholesale seed houses that are not owned by or affiliated with multinational biotech companies. As of May 2013, it is both a Certified Organic farm and a Certified Organic Handler (both by NOFA-NY LLC), and its seeds are instantly recognizable by the unique and artful packet designs. In addition to a conversation with Hand about the wealth of artisans here in the Hudson Valley, Greene will discuss his work and the future goals of the Seed Library. Oblong Books & Music is located at 6422 Montgomery Street in Rhinebeck. For more information, call (845) 8760500.

f you went to the Would in Highland, it would feel like time travel with a quirky retro setting and a simple modern menu based on quality local ingredients. You would turn into a steep driveway off a side road off Route 9W, climbing up toward imposing red brick structures that were once upon a time the Hotel di Prima, a resort for New York City Italians. Opening in 1926, it offered them a country retreat through the next few decades to play bocce, pingpong and shuffleboard and enjoy swimming, dances, socials and camaraderie. Fifty-nine rooms boasted running water, and the main salon had conditioning; there was no heat, as it was a summeronly resort. Claire Winslow, who has co-owned the Would with Debra Dooley since 1994, recalls summers as a child resting in what is now the main dining area, because she had asthma and it was the only part that was air-conditioned. She would gaze up at the distinctive high ceiling with oblong cutout coffers that date to the ’40s. Then the backgrounds were tile, now a shiny foil. Billowy cloth is planned to replace it. In the winter you can dine by a crackling fire with white tablecloths and candles; in warmer weather the outdoors beckons, with outdoor seating that includes the porch, as well as a pavilion where the bocce court once was. Winslow cooked alongside her mother

in the Would’s kitchen as a child. Now she is a Culinary Institute of Americatrained chef who moonlights doing corporate recipe development, and plans and executes the menu with her chef Fred Kormann, also a CIA grad, who has been there 14 years, since he came for his externship and never left. “Fred or I develop the dishes,” says Winslow. “We discuss, we taste.” “I don’t have it all boxed in,” she adds. “I’m always trying to make it better for our guests and our staff.” She brings back ideas for new dishes from her travels around the country: to Miami, San Francisco, Virginia, DC. “Travel always inspires me,” she says. “Our food is with the season,” she adds. “In summer we have lots of veggies…we keep it real simple…we always try to do healthy, and we buy the best products.” They focus on the best of what’s local. Inspiration comes from farmers’ markets like the Heart of the Hudson Valley farm market in Milton on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. At the Would they serve chicken from Northwind Farms in Tivoli and produce from Hepworth Farms, an organic woman-owned farm in Milton. “And we buy the best-quality beef that we

can buy,” she says. The Would’s New American menu is an eclectic mix of simple comfort food and modern classics, ranging from macand-cheese to foie gras pâté on challah croustade with a fig balsamic chutney. The Would has won a gold American Culinary Federation medal and three silver ones. At the Would you would start with a tuna Napoleon of spicy ahi tuna tartare layered with crispy gyoza and cucumber ($14), braised beef sliders with caramelized onions and a garlic rosemary aïoli ($14), Hepworth Farm kale tossed with beets, walnuts, aged goat cheese and a lemon vinaigrette ($12) or a half rack of barbecue ribs ($12). Then perhaps you

would move on to pan-seared shrimp with broccoli rabe, oven-roasted tomatoes and roasted garlic tossed with linguine ($22), mushroom strudel with sautéed spinach in a roasted red pepper sauce ($22), braised beef short rib over creamy polenta ($26) or pan-seared duck breast with a raspberry gastrique ($26). Bread is baked on-site, and desserts include, for example, chocolate peanut butter dream bar and raspberry chocolate brûlée. A $21 prix fixe option currently offers a choice of soup, salad or calamari, followed by chicken paprikash over spaetzle, grilled mahi mahi with mango salsa or grilled hangar steak with blue cheese compound butter. This bargain includes dessert: fruit crisp, vanilla ice cream or almond cake with whipped cream and berry compote. Or you would maybe feel like listening to soft jazz as you linger over the original long bar for cocktails or a selection from a variety of wines from a cellar of 150. The Would also offers parties and weddings on- or off-premises. Outdoor events begin the end of May. Why “the Would”? “So people would ask questions,” Winslow answers, smiling. The resort, when owned by her parents, was named the Inn at Applewood, and customers in the 1970s dubbed the restaurant the “Wood” for short. Hence wood became would, and the Would became known for fresh, locally and naturally grown or raised ingredients, prepared simply in its own style. – Jennifer Brizzi

Woody Guthrie was inspired by the novel to write the song “The Ballad of Tom Joad,” and more recently Bruce Springsteen made an album called The Ghost of Tom Joad. But what few of us realize is that this epic story was also adapted for the stage in the 1980s, by Frank Galati of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.

Scribblers’ delight Red Hook hosts Read Local! Literary Festival

T

he upcoming third annual Read Local! Red Hook Literary Festival will take place on Friday and Saturday, April 11 and 12 in venues in the village of Red Hook, with a full schedule of panels, workshops and presentations. The Friday-evening kickoff and opening reception at the Red Hook Community Arts Network (RHCAN) Artists’ Collective gallery will include the exhibition “Word Works,” a collection of artworks inspired by the written word, from 5 to 7 p.m. At 7:15 p.m., avid readers are invited to join the Big Read book discussion, focusing on Marilynne Robinson’s novel Housekeeping. An in-depth book discussion will be led by Anne Margaret Daniel, teacher of literature in New York City and at Bard College. Juliet Harrison, photographer and founder of RHCAN, worked for Oblong Books & Music in Rhinebeck for nearly 15 years and is again co-coordinating the festival with Oblong’s Suzanna Hermans. “Our idea was that we wanted to showcase local talent. There’s so much talent here, and we want to introduce that back to the community.” Early Saturday morning, a discussion for all wannabe writers will zero in on the Business of Writing, with literary agent Bernadette Baker-Baughman, author and publisher Bruce McPherson of McPherson & Company and author/memoirist Abigail Thomas (Three Dog Night and Safekeeping). Nancy Castaldo, children’s nonfiction writer, will moderate this popular panel discussion in the Red Hook Village Hall. Meanwhile, the youngest book-lovers in town will be entertained by author and illustrator G. Brian Karas and by Iza Trapani at the Red Hook Public Library on South Broadway. At 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, the Elmendorph Inn on North Broadway will host a Fiction Luncheon. Suzanna Hermans will conduct a panel discussion with three prolific writers: the wonderful Gail Godwin (Flora), Valerie Martin (The Ghost of Mary Celeste) and Koren Zailckas (Mother, Mother). Lunch will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to support the festival. The Hudson Valley YA Society will meet at the Library from 2 to 4 p.m. with a panel featuring authors Theo Lawrence (Toxic Heart), Tiffany Schmidt (Bright before Sunrise) and Eliot Schrefer (Threatened). “It’s a mixed bag,” says Hermans. “There’s a little bit of something for everyone.” A nonfiction panel discussion will be held in the Red Hook Village Hall with authors Jenny Brown (The Lucky Ones) and Jack Kelly (Gunpowder: Alchemy, Bombards and Pyrotechnics: The History of the Explosive that Changed the World). Oblong Books co-owner Dick Hermans will moderate this panel from 2:15 to 4 p.m. Book-signings will take place immediately following each panel at the Bread & Bottle, located on the corner of Main and Market Streets. All titles by participating authors will be available for purchase. Local literary powerhouse Nina Shengold will direct a special program on Saturday evening: “Stories on Stage: Hudson Valley Actors Read Stories by Hudson Valley Authors.” Shengold, Chronogram books editor, Actors & Writers member and author (Clearcut), has used her influence to gather a conspicuously talented group of actors for

holding open auditions for the roles of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in their upcoming production of Lucy, Illuminated, an original piece about Lucy and Desi that will be performed at the theater in which they made their stage debut together: the historic Ritz The-

Besides showcasing local talent, what sets this literary festival apart from others is the community effort that goes into its production. Harrison mentions the donation of the printing of festival materials by Bard College, and the hosting of venues and donations of food and advertising by other individuals and organizations in Red Hook – not to forget mentioning all the volunteers who work to produce the event. The draw of attendees brings lots of business to the restaurants and other shops in town, as people walk from one venue to another. “We’re still evolving. This summer we’re hoping to have a writers’ market, on the same model as a farmers’ market,” says Harrison. “Although we’re showcasing known authors, we know there are lots of people – self-published authors, small publishers, people who do a product that may have to do with writing a book or something – there are a great many people in our area who are struggling. Although we may not have them on a panel, we want to support them in any way we can.” All events presented by the Red Hook Community Arts Network, the Red Hook Public Library and Oblong Books & Music are free and open to the public.

To honor the 95 th anniversary of the birth of American dance legend Merce Cunningham (born April 16, 1919), the Rosendale Theatre will screen the filmed version of the Merce Cunningham Company’s final public performance – known as the Park Avenue Armory Event – on Sunday, April 13 at 2 p.m. A Cunningham Company “Event,� as described by Cunningham, “consists of excerpts of dances from the repertory and new sequences arranged for the particular performance and place, with the possibility of several separate activities happening at the same time – to allow not so much an evening of dance as the experience of dance.� Nearly 800 Events were staged by Cunningham, but this Event, his epitaph, is one the largest undertaken. It is a retrospective glimpse of 50 years of Cunningham’s choreography, from Rune (1959) to Nearly 902 (2009).

Tickets are free, but reservations are required. Reservations will open to the public on April 2; contact boxoffice@vassar. edu. Written in three weeks in 1941 while in exile, Brecht’s The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui is a sharp and thrilling take on the rise of Hitler shot through with razorsharp wit. Brecht recasts Hitler’s rise as a Chicago gangster’s takeover of the city’s greengrocery trade. Set in 1930s Chicago, this gangster spectacle explores our relationship with violence as a way to achieve and maintain power. The Great Depression is the perfect

time for a small-time gangster to make it big, to seize a greater power – an absolute power. The play was not produced until as late as 1958, and not until 1961 in English. In spite of this, Brecht never envisioned a version of the play in Germany, intending it for the American stage all along. Vassar alumna Ianthe Demos will be at the helm of Arturo Ui, serving as a guest director this semester. Demos is artistic director of One Year Lease (OYL), a New York City-based ensemble company dedicated to creating new work, training young theater artists and advancing international collaboration in theater. She co-founded the company in 2001 with fellow Vassar alumnae Ariane Barbanell and Jacqueline Kristel. Among its many efforts, OYL runs an annual theater apprentice program in northern Greece, and its ensemble members have worked with numerous theater companies internationally including the National Theater of Greece, the Sydney Theater Company, the Public, the Capitol Repertory Theater and the Kennedy Center.

arch may have gone out like a lion; the nights may still be cold and the mountains of dirty plowed-up snow still not entirely melted away; the flowers and buds may still be hanging back timidly after a long and difficult winter. But spring is here nonetheless – and the way that we can tell, when all other measures fail, is by the lengthening daylight. It lifts our SADdened spirits, even when somewhat obscured by April’s oft-rainy skies. Simply put, we sighted humans crave the light. It doesn’t just show us what’s in our environment and how to navigate it safely; it has a profound psychological effect on us as well. In the visual arts, of course, light has always played a crucial role, pointing our attention at whatever it is that the artist wishes to emphasize and shaping our emotional reaction to that focal image. But the ways in which artists have manipulated light, both in terms of stylistic approach and the media available to them, have changed radically over time. We think of chiaroscuro – the deliberate creation of stark contrasts between light and dark areas – as predominantly a Renaissance Italian painting technique,

April 10, 2014

for example; but it also manifested in woodcuts, and probably its most famous practitioner in paint was Rembrandt, several centuries later. It took a whole new turn in modern times with the invention of photography and cinematography. The approach to shading that contemporary artists refer to as “light modeling” was known as far back as the skiagraphia of the Athenian painter Apollodoros in the fifth century BCE, appearing again in Macedonian mosaics and Roman and medieval manuscript illumination. Tenebrism – nocturnal scenes lit only by candlelight or firelight – became popular in Spanish art and is closely associated with the works of Caravaggio and Rubens; but it surfaced again in the 20th century, transformed by urban electrification, in the moody neon-lit works of the likes of Edward Hopper. A fascinating overview of the historical progression of the use of different types of light in art will be unveiled this Friday, April 11 at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center on the Vassar College campus. Touted as the first exhibition of its kind, “Mastering Light: From the Natural to the Artificial” explores artistic responses to light by European and American

artists from the 16th through the early 20th centuries. The artworks included in “Mastering Light” are divided up into three sections based on the type of illuminated employed: “Natural Light,” “Nocturnal Light” and “Artificial Light.” The Lehman Loeb will capitalize on its strong Rembrandt collection by including his works in all three categories. Other highlights (no pun intended) will be a Dürer engraving, Saint Jerome in His Study; a Tenebrist Goya etching of a starlit witches’ Sabbat; one of Hogarth’s 18th-century political etchings; Charles Courtney Curran’s 1887 oil Shadow Decoration; a ToulouseLautrec lithograph; two Edvard Munchs, a painting and a woodcut; Joseph Stella’s 1914 oil of Coney Island, Battle of Lights, on loan from the Museum of Modern Art; and Hopper’s 1921 etching Night Shadows. Visitors can also catch a projection 51 seconds of movie film shot by Thomas Edison at night at the 1901 Pan-American Exposition, which introduced electric lighting to the American public. The kickoff for the exhibition will be a talk by William C. Sharpe, professor of English at Barnard College and author of New York Nocturne: The City after Dark

in Literature, Painting and Photography, 1850-1950, winner of the 2009 Modernist Studies Association Book Prize. The lecture will take place in Taylor Hall, Room 102, beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 11 and be followed by a 6:30 p.m. reception in the Atrium of the Art Center. “Mastering Light” will be up at the Lehman Loeb through June 29. Two events later this month involving the new exhibition include a Gallery Talk by curator Patricia Phagan at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 24 and Family Day artmaking activities and tours geared to kids aged 5 to 10 years on Saturday, April 26 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. No registration required to participate in Family Day, and all these events are free and open to the public. “Artists are drawn to shifting light effects, and they frequently edit and exaggerate and experiment with them in pictorial images, creating their own illusions of natural light with symbolic and emotional moods and meanings,” says Phagan. “Overall, these works show that light can connote deeper meanings: symbolic, moral, intellectual or nationalistic.” The artists included in the exhibition that she curated, she says, “left us with not only arresting works of art, but also with a deeper understanding of aesthetic, social and technological histories of lighting.” The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

PERFECT MEASUREMENTS Show on the Golden Ratio opens this Saturday at Saugerties Performing Arts Factory

A

h, that perfect measure – or, to be much more specific, the Perfect Measure, as in the new exhibit of same name opening at the spacious, quite magnificent Gallery at the Factory in Saugerties as “The Perfect Measure: The Golden Ratio in Contemporary Art.� The exhibit, curated by Swiss-born artist and writer Astrid Fitzgerald, features sublimely balanced abstract works by 11 artists who have been participating in the growing online collection Museum of the Golden Ratio, which has dedicated itself to a specific aesthetic that plays with the same geometric and mathematical principles – in particular the Golden Ratio, Platonic Solids and Fibonacci Numbers – that have periodically surfaced in classic Egyptian, Greek and Roman works, the High Renaissance and the more Modernist careers of such well-known masters as Mondrian, Seurat and Mark Rothko. “Two years ago I received a New York Foundation for the Arts Mark 12 Award – also known as ‘boot camp’ for artists – during which we were asked to state our plans for the future,� Fitzgerald said of the show’s origins. “Mine was to find a building in the mid-Hudson Valley area and transform it into a museum dedicated to collecting and preserving individual expressions in art of the myriad aspects of the Golden Ratio, a mysterious and magical principle which appears in nature, architecture and mathematics.� No bricks-and-mortar home has been found, as yet, although the former factory site in Saugerties is filling in for now. The result is an exploration of the universal principles that “seem to arise out of the basic structure of the cosmos. The ratio is found when a line is divided into two unequal parts so that the shorter part relates in length to the longer part as the longer part relates to the whole.� It makes for some sumptuous art, in a grand setting. – Paul Smart

new exhibits at the Hessel, one curated by first-year graduate students, the other as a series of individual students’ curatorial statements. All are thesis projects. “Footnotes� sublimates the artworks shown to become items whose “representations, meanings and contexts exceed their physical locality. This exhibition spatially contextualizes artworks by rethinking the relationship between title, text and footnote... Often considered to be ancillary information to a main text, here the ‘footnote’ serves as portal, escape hatch, link or dead end. In other words, the gallery walls have been filled with art or used as backdrop, “as a facsimile of the written page� where “the footnote transcends the boundaries below the text to reveal interwoven connections that at times allow the viewer to delve further into contexts of the work, or escape it altogether.� There was a famous Nabokov novel, Pnin, that buried its narrative and emotion in a similar fashion. Meanwhile, the current graduating class’s show, collectively titled “Deviance Credits,� is made up of 13 individual exhibits that work off a new educational strategy that argues for “one foot firmly planted in the institution so that the other foot can deviate from the norm,� and proposes “an essential hinge between a

would you want to stress? Bard College’s Center for Curatorial Studies (CCS) has a special ingredient that’s lacking anywhere else in its field: It has its own collection of contemporary art, a huge cutting-edge series of gallery spaces on either side of a center atrium. And the program pushes its students to curate the Hessel Museum of Art themselves. Two new shows, “Footnotes� and “Deviance Credits,� open there on Sunday, April 13 for a run through May 25 – which brings us to the element at play at CCS Bard. The increasingly influential graduate school for gallery and museum curators stresses thematic approaches to art. And key to those themes is an always-accompanying wish to undermine and play off old expectations. The idea is to create freshness through context, which as often as not is done via the text accompanying whatever theme’s being used to organize the works to be seen. The result is what we see of art many places these days: There are underlying sensibilities at play, an overall sense of differentiation and inherent importance to the mysterious messages being relayed. Some artists end up standing out within all this; many become part of a greater whole. One comes away from exhibits or art fairs or installations, more often than not, with a changed sense of reality. All systems end up getting questioned. Moreover, one feels slightly superior to one’s pre-exhibit-viewing self simply by having been through the thoughtprovoking experience of “the show.� Okay – it’s also usually quite a lot of fun, too, and often haunting stuff. Take the two

full investment in an institution and an opening of space for challenging or critical practices.� In other words, the works get shown so they are grouped around physical elements, such as use of light, as well as the means by which they are not as they seem. Much text explains how everything is designed to question, invert equations, promote some level of dissension. One could almost say that it’s all about having one’s cake and eating it too. – Paul Smart “Footnotes� & “Deviance Credits� opening reception, Sunday, April 13, 1-4 p.m., free, CCS Bard Galleries, Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College, Annandale on Hudson; (845) 758-7598, www.bard.edu/ccs.

On your feet

SUNY-Ulster hosts Don Byron’s New Gospel Quintet this Saturday

T

he reed-player and jazz composer/interpreter Don Byron’s New Gospel Quintet routinely raises roofs and brings audiences almost involuntarily to their feet. Vocalist D. K. Dyson can be as smoldering and subtle as she wants to be, but when she gets worked up and possessed, the stage literally cannot contain her. Some of the most poignant and unusual moments of the concert that I saw, in fact, came when the reserved and stolid

This is a rousing band of stone-cold virtuosi Byron gently implored Dyson to keep a lid on it and save some for later. Well, no one can tame the wild streak of the Holy Spirit, but when it is Don Byron talking, I suppose that the Holy Spirit at least listens. This is a rousing band of stone-cold virtuosi: Byron, the brilliant pianist Xavier Davis and the almost impossibly free and grooving rhythm section of bassist Brad Jones and drummer Pheeroan akLaff. Their commitment to the ecstatic aims of gospel music is so utter and genuine that you will almost forget that you are in the presence, and under the spell, of one the most important and ambitious figures in 20th/21st-century avant-garde jazz. This has always been the paradox of Don Byron, the ardent envelope-pusher whose career has proceeded in a series of deeply committed, even reverent genre appropriations and studies, beginning with the fusion of klezmer and modern jazz that brought him to national attention, moving through episodes of funk, eccentric swing, serious Minimalism and (surprisingly little) free-jazz skronk. With the New Gospel Quintet as with the klezmer record of long ago, there is no jokey referentiality to any of Byron’s style conquests. Byron confers seriousness and the harmonic depth of jazz upon the genres that he studies and masters. The genres, in turn, render Byron’s catalogue one of the most listenable and joyous in all of serious and cerebral jazz. Don Byron and the New Gospel Quintet cap off Byron’s stint as the Larry Berk artist-in-residence at SUNY-Ulster with a performance on Saturday, April 12. The New Gospel Quintet has a way not only of exciting audience but also of transforming venues into places of worship with their shows. This one is not to be missed. – John Burdick Don Byron & the New Gospel Quintet, Saturday April 12, 7 p.m., Quimby Theater, SUNY-Ulster, 491 Cottekill Road, Stone Ridge; http://apps.sunyulster.edu/ announcements/1674.

Woodstock hosts Palm Sunday choral concert featuring Maria Todaro A Palm Sunday (April 13) concert to usher in Holy Week is scheduled for St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church in Woodstock.  The concert will feature the Woodstock Community Chorale and the Phoenicia Community Choir. Widely renowned artists Maria Todaro as alto singer and Jolie Dunham as soprano will be part of this special event.  Brittany Sokolowski will perform on the piano and organ. This 3:30 pm concert on April 13 will center around “Stabat Mater,” or what is commonly known in religious circles as the Sorrows of Mary. The hymn, one of the most powerful, centers in on the suffering of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, during his crucifixion. “This will be a very moving concert, and we really hope that local residents and visitors will join us for what will be an extraordinary performance,” said Todaro, who is also executive director for the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice. St. Gregory’s is located just east of the village of Woodstock at 2578 Route 212. Admission is by free will donation, and there is ample free parking.

Kairos performs Tenebrae Service this Sunday in West Park On Sunday, April 13 at 4 p.m., Kai-

ros: A Consort of Singers, under the direction of Edward Lundergan, will present its annual Lessons and Hymns Tenebrae Service at the Holy Cross Monastery. R eadings from the Old and New Testament will be interspersed with a cappella hymns and motets from the Renaissance to the present. Musical selections will include works by Lasso, Purcell, Britten, Palestrina, Schein, Josquin and Kairos baritone Peter Sipple. Admission is free and all are welcome. This service is modeled on the medieval monastic office of Tenebrae (Latin for darkness), which was part of the observance of Holy Week. A principal feature of this service is the gradual extinguishing of candles to signify the apparent victory of the forces of evil in the events leading to the crucifixion of Jesus. No tickets are required for this service; however, it is suggested that audience members arrive at the venue at least 20 minutes before the performance to ensure seating availability. The Holy Cross Monastery is located at 1615 Broadway (Route 9W) in West Park. For further information and directions, visit www. kairosconsort.org or call (845) 256-9114. Kairos: A Consort of Singers, Dr. Edward Lundergan, artistic director, is a select vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of unaccompanied choral literature from the Medieval to the present. The group is artist-in-residence at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park and performs in the Hudson Valley and beyond.

Rauf ’s eccentric Rococo Life in a Blender celebrates release of Tongue-Cut Sparrow at BSP in Kingston

W

hen people in my position need a short cut, a quick way to establish a territory for the New York City band Life in a Blender, the names Waits and Beefheart offer themselves to help describe frontman Don Rauf ’s cultured, barking madness and the bawdy, eccentric Rococo of the band’s chamber-rock arrangements. Once you’ve found the region, however, forget those hallowed landmarks; they’re really not very nearby at all. You’re left the Interstate now and will have to go off-road entirely to locate this idiosyncratic, high-energy veteran band. Life in a Blender’s eighth and newest release, Tongue-Cut Sparrow, is beefy for an EP – seven tracks clocking in at barely over 20 minutes – but Rauf ’s lyrics and vocals are an importunate headful that won’t leave you alone, and the arrangements sprout genuine, commanding surprises every 20 to 30 seconds. At times, on tracks like “Shards,” it sounds like the band is calling on all its imaginative resources to score a libretto by an LSD diarist. But, generally, pop pith, tight forms and an energy not inconsistent with partying prevail. It’s roots-ravaging chamber pop, with accents noir, soul, redneck and surreal garage. There’s a political edge that is New Wave if not exactly punk. Rauf ’s lyrics illustrate the difference between meaning and message. Every line buzzes with meaning, specificity, evocation, implication, reference and raw, emotional purpose. But if the new statewide, mandatory Adult English Language Arts Common Core exam asks you to summarize the thesis, using details from the text to support your answer… well, good luck with that. Best to just enjoy the bumpy, swerving and oddly graceful ride. A legendary live band in the City, Life in a Blender celebrates the release of Tongue-

its ninth year. Kairos also presents historically informed performances of the great Baroque choral works each fall, including the Monteverdi Vespers, Handel’s Dixit Dominus and Purcell’s King Arthur. Kairos is celebrating its 20th anniversary as the premier vocal ensemble of the Hudson Valley and recently completed recording its second CD, The Valley Sings, featuring choral music by Hudson Valley composers. The CD was released on the MSR Classics label and is currently available at www. kairosconsort.org, as well as at a variety of online vendors, including Amazon and iTunes.

Cut Sparrow upstate at BSP on Thursday, April 17. Also on the bill is another notable figure from the New York scene: the distinctive songwriter and guitarist Chris Maxwell. Maxwell and his friends in Skeleton Key proved – in the mid-‘90s, on Capitol Records – that the heft and the decibels of grunge could be fused organically with dark cabaret, urban circus and found-object New York art rock. Sneak peeks of Maxwell’s current work, however, describe a very different place: Lush, layered but modest in delivery, the tracks variously evoke the Lennon piano ballad, the muted roots/pop maximalism of Wilco and some of that hushed and exquisite micro-melody that we associate with Elliot Smith. Maxwell’s band for the occasion will include local/national heavyweights like Dan Hickey and Marco Benevento. – John Burdick Life in a Blender, Chris Maxwell & the Sweet Clementines, Thursday, April 17, 8 p.m., $8, 18+, BSP, 323 Wall Street, Kingston; (845) 481-5158, www.bspkingston. com.

CAP GETS TO SHINE A BIT MORE – largely because he’s developing his own brand of Marvelesque inner conflict

Corruption at the top Captain America loses some innocence but gains some coolness in The Winter Soldier

P

eople who prefer Marvel to DC Comics generally express that preference in terms of the characters in the Marvel superhero universe being more complex beings than their DC counterparts. Unlike every early DC hero with the possible exception of Batman, they have dark sides. Their flaws and weaknesses tend to be matters of character or personality as opposed to, say, Superman’s physical vulnerability to Kryptonite. Consequently, they’re more conflicted and thus more relatable and interesting; their stories take unexpected turns as the characters get mired in various forms of superhuman angst. So say the Marvel fanboys and fangirls. But the very first superhero ever coined in the Marvel franchise is the exception to the rule: Armed only with a glorified Frisbee and wrapping himself in the flag, Captain America is chaste and virtuous and self-sacrificing; he never lies or disobeys orders. Having conveniently slept through Korea and Vietnam, our various sordid little interventions in Latin America, the Gulf War and most of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts as well, Steve Rogers is still fighting the Good War, untroubled by any of the ethical qualms about American military adventurism overseas that have afflicted subsequent generations. The upshot is that hitherto, as Marvel superheroes go, Captain America has been the most boring. That sad truth came into sharp focus in the mishmash of characters thrown together, all seemingly talking different languages, in Joss Whedon’s megahit 2012 film The Avengers: Steve Rogers/Captain America isn’t jaded, snarky, ironic and cool like Tony Stark/ Iron Man; he’s not alternately a cuddly

very end, Winter Soldier’s plot occurs subsequently to the Loki hijinks, alien invasion and general trashing of New York City in The Avengers. As he attempts to adapt to 21st-century pop culture and technology, Rogers (Chris Evans) has had a little time now to digest the moral ambiguities of the Bush administration’s foreign policy and is starting to have some unprecedented trust issues about the US government. What’s bad for America is good for Captain America, though: He’s becoming a generally more interesting guy. Cap’s growing skepticism is wellwarranted, as we quickly discover in this briskly paced but not mind-numbingly hyperkinetic action film. On a mission to rescue a SHIELD ship from Algerian pirates, he discovers that his sidekick Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) is following a different set of orders from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and starts wondering which side the boss is really on and who’s telling the truth, if anyone. Turns out that SHIELD security has been seriously compromised in a Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy sort of highlevel conspiracy. Your basic good guysversus-Nazilike-HYDRA-bad-guys comic book plot thus jumps a metalevel to a twisty meditation on the ethics and transparency issues of government agencies in the age of Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. It’s timely that way. Evans and Johansson have good onscreen chemistry, though of a decidedly

Buff as he may be, he isn’t a gorgeous-looking Norse deity like Thor/ Thor, and Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow’s butt looks way better in Spandex. In fact, Rogers gets stuck with about the dorkiest line in the whole movie, telling Romanoff, “There’s only one God, ma’am, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that” – this despite the fact that he’s working on the same side as one member of the Asgard pantheon to foil the nefarious plans of another. Stark and Banner get all the good lines and funny bits in The Avengers; Rogers is virtuous to his eyeballs and dull, dull, dull.

ALMANAC WEEKLY

April 10, 2014

You don’t really need to know much more about the plot; to divulge the secret identity of HYDRA’s latest killing machine dubbed the Winter Soldier might mean spoiling a surprise for the two or three people out there who weren’t already aware of it from all the pre-release hype. Suffice it to say that there are car chases, exhibitions of sundry martial arts, explosions, lots of leaps from very high places, airborne weapons of mass destruction and the obligatory MacGuffin that needs to be inserted in a certain slot before a certain countdown runs out (we of course get the full countdown). As is usual in comic book-based movies, there is a disturbing amount of collateral damage to buildings, vehicles and the civilian population before all is sorted out – though thankfully, not quite so much to Washington, DC here as was done to the Big Apple in The Avengers. Hang in there for the traditional post-closing-credits Easter egg for a glimpse of a couple of new superpowered characters being groomed for the next sequel. Meanwhile, you can revel in the fact that ol’ Cap has shed a few points off his dorkiness quotient, yielding a couple of hours of not entirely brainless, actiony onscreen fun. – Frances Marion Platt

Time trip The Terminator is back – at UPAC in Kingston on Friday

Producer Maggie Renzi discusses The Secret of Roan Inish at Rosendale Theatre on Saturday afternoon

R

ed Hook’s great independent filmmaker John Sayles isn’t particularly known as a creator of movies for kids, but in 1994 he did direct one of the loveliest, most lyrical family films ever made: The Secret of Roan Inish. Set on a wild, picturesque island off the northwest coast of Ireland and luminously shot by the brilliant cinematographer Haskell Wexler, it’s an adventure worth experiencing again and again. And if you or your young ones have never seen it, make sure to put Saturday afternoon, April 12 on your calendar, because The Secret of Roan Inish is returning to the big screen at the Rosendale Theatre. Better yet, Maggie Renzi, the film’s producer and Sayles’s longtime creative and domestic partner, will be there in person to discuss the film and how it was developed from her favorite childhood book, The Secret of Ron Mor Skerry by Rosalie K Fry. Originally set in Scotland, the narrative is based on folklore of the Orkney and Shetland Islands in which many fishing and seafaring families claim descent from the Selkies or Seal-Folk: skin-changers who can dwell beneath the waves as seals or walk dry land in human form. According to these romantic tales, a human can claim a Selkie spouse by stealing his or her sealskin and keeping it carefully hidden away. Most often the captive eventually discovers the skin and returns to the sea, but not before producing a half-human child or two. There are also plenty of stories of sailors thrown overboard who were buoyed to the surface and nudged to land by friendly Selkies. In The Secret of Roan Inish, a ten-year-old girl named Fiona (Jeni Courtney) goes to live in a small fishing village on the Donegal coast with her grandparents, who were forcibly relocated from the mysterious island of Roan Inish. During the confusion of the hasty exodus, a boat-shaped cradle containing Fiona’s baby brother Jamie was washed out to sea. Along with her family’s nostalgic memories of the isle, she overhears gossip that one of her ancestors married a Selkie, and that the skin-changing trait reemerges once every few generations. Paddling out to the abandoned island on her own, Fiona catches glimpses of a wild boy running naked, then struggles to convince the rest of her family that Jamie is still alive, having been rescued from drowning by his Selkie kin. Catch this charming, visually stunning film at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 12, followed by a question-and-answer session with Renzi. Tickets cost $7 general admission, $5 for children and Rosendale Theatre Collective members. For more information, visit http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/03/07/the-secret-of-roan-inish. – Frances Marion Platt The Secret of Roan Inish with Maggie Renzi, Saturday, April 12, 3 p.m., $7/$5, Rosendale Theatre, 408 Main Street, Rosendale; (845) 658-8989, http://rosendaletheatre.org.

quips or trying to fix Cap up with blind dates in the midst of decking adversaries by the dozen, is that in a less sexist moviemaking world, the Black Widow could easily command a movie of her own. Maybe the fanbase will begin demanding one more loudly now. Another pleasant development to be found in this movie is the establishment of a black Avenger as a star in his own right. Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker, The Adjustment Bureau) exudes considerable low-key charm as Sam Wilson, an Iraq vet from a pararescue unit who counsels military PTSD victims and befriends Rogers at a time when friends are thin

on the ground. Helpfully, Wilson turns out to be able to fly, thanks to a zingy silverwinged suit: Welcome the Falcon, newest recruit to SHIELD’s fighting elite. The rest of the cast is strong as well, though some of the lines that they are called upon to deliver are typically hamhanded comic-book talk-bubble material. Hayley Atwell gets an affecting scene with Evans as an elderly, dying Peggy Carter, Cap’s “best girl” from World War II days; and Robert Redford as World Security Council member/SHIELD honcho Alexander Pierce gives an amusing new spin to his DC bureaucrat roles of the ’70s and ’80s. The reliable Jackson turns in

very satisfying work as the multiplicitous Fury, who spins way more webs here than the Black Widow.

S

ome relationships just work. That’s how it is with the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and the Hudson River Maritime Museum (HRMM), who share the Kingston Home Port and Education Center on the Kingston waterfront on a “six months in, six months out” basis, according to the museum’s Lana Chassman. During the winter, when the Clearwater can’t go out on the river, its keepers use the 4,600-square-foot barn as a maintenance workshop. The other half of the year, the Hudson River Maritime Museum moves into the space, using it for events, lectures and educational activities. The ground floor is open to the public; the upper story is workspace and storage for museum archives. “And it works beautifully,” says Chassman. “The barn takes on the character of whatever is in there: It dresses up for elegant sit-down dinners we have catered there, and then it turns into a boat workshop with sawdust

flying and people working in tee-shirts – it’s amazing.” The finely crafted 64-foot-by-36foot structure made of reclaimed local wood is still relatively new, erected in September of 2012 with much fanfare in an old-fashioned community barnraising overseen by the benevolent presence of Pete Seeger. There were those at the time who were skeptical, Chassman notes, “who said the building wouldn’t fit in or was going to be an eyesore. But when you see it, it looks like it was always supposed to be here. The 1898 steam tugboat Mathilda is right there, and it’s a great building to function in, and so well-made. It’s architectural perfection for a barn.” This weekend, the Kingston Home Port and Education Center will host a community gathering of fun, light refreshments and contra dancing in “Barn Dancin’ on the Rondout,” a collaborative fundraising event equally benefiting HRMM and the Clearwater. And like last year’s inaugural barn dance at the site,

live music will be provided for dancing throughout the evening by Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, with calling by Peter Blue. The barn will be staged atmospherically, with archival semaphore flags from the museum’s collection and antiques from Milne’s at Home Antiques of Kingston. It’s a family-friendly affair, with kids sure to find a haybale or two to kick back on and watch the dancing. New this year is an arrangement they’re calling “Barn Dance up an Appetite,” says Chassman, where five waterfront restaurants have agreed to offer a special dinner either before or after the barn dance. Participating restaurants include Dermot Mahoney’s Irish Pub, Mariner’s Harbor, Savona’s Trattoria, Ship to Shore and the Steel House Restaurant and Bar. At the dance, there will be light fingerfoods – cheese and crackers, fruit, minipastries – donated by local merchants and coffee, tea and water. In the early part of the evening, Coppersea Distilling from West Park, a single farm-sourced distillery that makes spirits using heritage methods, will offer shots of one of its spirits, probably whiskey, included with the price of admission.

Tickets are available at the door for $25. To save $5, register online in advance at www.surveymonkey.com/s/ barndancin2014.

wo years after the triumphant 1806 return of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark from their Corps of Discovery Expedition, Thomas Jefferson sought the financial help of millionaire John Jacob Astor to establish a Jamestown-like colony on the Pacific Coast, anticipating a day when it would become a hub of commerce. Astor set out to establish a global THOMAS JEFFERSON SOUGHT trade network based at the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon, while Jefthe financial help of John Jacob Astor to ferson envisioned a separate democracy on the western shore of the continent establish a Jamestown-like colony that would spread eastward to meet the young United States. on the Pacific Coast To achieve these mutual ends, in 1810 Astor dispatched two groups of men west: one by sea around the southern tip of South America and one by land over the Rockies.

P

est problems, due mostly to having a poor site and living east of the Rocky Mountains, have made me give up on growing apples – almost. Last year’s cicadas and this winter’s deer took their toll also. One problem, I realized, is that my trees are super-efficient superdwarfs that I made by grafting chosen varieties on special rootstocks. The problem is that super-efficient superdwarfs are also super-finicky about growing conditions. So I decided, instead, to try semidwarf trees that would be more tolerant of a less-than-perfect environment. Long story short: I’m going to replant with five varieties of great-tasting apples: Macoun, Pitmaston Pineapple, Hudson’s Golden Gem, Ashmead’s Kernel and Liberty – on G.30 rootstock. Unfortunately, such trees are not available anywhere – not even from Cummins Nursery (http://cumminsnursery.com), which specializes in high-quality trees of a range of varieties on a range of rootstocks. They do have those varieties on other rootstocks, though, and they do have G.30 rootstocks, which I bought and received last week. And so I set about making new trees, by grafting. The graft of choice was a whip

graft: an easy graft to make, especially with apple. Grafts done this time of year are called “bench grafts” because they can be done at a bench or table, indoors, at a time when it’s still too early to plant outdoors. As is usual with bench grafts, my rootstocks were bare-root: nothing more than 18-inch-long pencil-thick stems with some roots at their bottom ends. Perfect. Now for the grafts. Step One was to cut through near the top of the rootstock and near the bottom of the scion with a smooth, sloping cut. Step Two was to match the cut faces of the two sloping cuts. Step Three was to bind them together; I used grafting rubbers, but cut rubber bands work equally well. Step Four was to prevent moisture loss from the graft. I covered the graft with either Tree-Kote or Parafilm – the latter a stretchy, waxy material. Step Five is aftercare. The completed grafts could be kept in cold storage until ready to plant out. Even better is to expose the graft to warm temperatures for a week or two to promote callousing, which is a proliferation of undifferentiated cells that mark the first step in joining of stock and scion tissue. I potted my grafts up and put them in the greenhouse for good

callousing and to spur the beginnings of new root growth from rootstocks. Whip grafting is easy; still, certain requirements must be met for success. The rootstock and especially the scion (the stem of the variety for grafting) must still be in their winter sleep, or nearly so: Check. The rootstock and the scion must be sufficiently close botanical kin: Check; G.30 and the various scion varieties are the same species. The cambia – the layers just beneath the bark – of stock and scion must be touching or at least close: Check; I accounted for different diameters of rootstock and scion stems by lining up one side of their sloping cuts. The grafts will need to be nursed along

this year. With good growing conditions, they’ll be ready for planting out next spring. With luck, a sufficiently green thumb, good weather and three clicks together of the heels of my red slippers, I’ll be biting into a Macoun apple here in four years. I realize today that it’s as much fun to sample varieties of tomatoes as it is pleasurable to eat homegrown tomatoes. That’s one rationale, at least, for my sowing seed of 21 varieties for planting this season. Why so many, when probably growing five varieties would satisfy all my Lycopersicum esculentum needs? That would be Sungold for the best cherry tomato, San Marzano for the best (or one of the best) canning tomatoes, Amish

NIGHT SKY

The prettiest total eclipse Don’t miss the amazing weird Moon

I

t’s very unusual that our region sees two total eclipses in a year. Such a double whammy happens only a few times a century. The first 2014 event unfolds this Monday night, April 14. It starts with the strange voodoo word “penumbra,” which all by itself makes television anchors mess up their eclipse announcements. Consulting a reference book beforehand, they think that the action starts with the beginning of the penumbral eclipse, just before 1 a.m. Tip: Pretend “penumbral” spells out the word “zero.” Nothing happens. Each year I create the astronomy section of the Old Farmers’ Almanac, and I’ve made sure, since taking it over 20 years ago, that the “start” time of the eclipse ignores the penumbral portion. Otherwise, people go out, look up and wait – and wait some more, gazing at an ordinary Full Moon. So just skip ahead to 1:58 a.m. for the debut of the partial stage. Now the action begins. Since it’s after midnight, the date is April 15. Don’t get confused; when we say Monday night, we mean the wee hours of Tuesday morning. The Moon is the only known body whose speed matches its diameter: It alone moves through space its own width each hour. No surprise, then, that it takes that long fully to enter Earth’s shadow. During this time, from around 2 to 3:06 a.m., the Moon goes through a bizarre series of odd shapes. Some resemble lunar phases, but most are much stranger than that. Earth’s shadow tapers like a chopstick to roughly half its original width at the Moon’s distance – still about twice the moon’s size. So a lunar eclipse is a geometric wonderland involving curves with two different radii. These interacting curves produce their weirdest dreamlike effects when the shadow falls near the outer edge of the Moon, roughly at 2:15 a.m. and then again around 2:45 a.m. If you want to impress impatient beginners, have ‘em look up during these Times of Maximum Strangeness. Totality starts at 3:06 and lasts until 4:25 a.m. During this time, the Moon usually turns coppery red. That’s because our planet throws a red shadow into space, in which the Moon has now become fully immersed. All the countless fainter stars that were masked by the Full Moon during the night’s first half now fill the sky. Although a total lunar eclipse is probably only one percent as wondrous as a total solar eclipse, it’s still

ANDREA BARRIST STERN

very worth setting the alarm to see. Lunar eclipses appear best through binoculars or just the unaided eye. The Full Moon is never a good telescope target, and hosting the blurry-edged shadow of Earth doesn’t help much. It’s not terrible, like macaroni salad; but Earth’s shadow edge is fuzzy, and fuzzy is not a good thing through an eyepiece. This eclipse is particularly gorgeous. The eclipsed Moon hovers just above Virgo’s main star, Spica. Its blue dazzle will provide a striking contrast to the reddish Moon. Farther to the Moon’s right floats brilliant Mars, a distinct orange. The event’s climax is a bit unpredictable, which adds to the fun. Although the Moon will probably turn red, some previous totalities have turned the Moon invisibly black, or brown, gray, red, coppery, orange or yellow/white, depending on the light reaching the Moon after skimming past Earth’s edge. This light varies with the amount of atmospheric dust, clouds, moisture and pollution around Earth’s limb. The lunar eclipse is thus the only celestial event where we look at another world but get an environmental report card about ourselves. And if we don’t like what we see, hey, we get another chance on October 8. If it’s cloudy here, you can follow the eclipse live on your computer, at http://slooh.com. – Bob Berman Want to know more?

April 10, 2014 Paste and Anna Russian as excellent eating and canning tomatoes, Belgian Giant for its unique, delectable flavor and Carmello for good flavor and earliness from a fullsize, smooth and almost perfectly round tomato. Okay, six varieties. After last summer’s tomato taste-off, I could not help but also grow Lillian’s Golden, the winner; and Blue Beech, which, besides good eating, makes a uniquely flavored sauce. Brandywine is

a top contender in any best tomato tasteoff, so I’m trying Black Brandywine. Perhaps it’s my imagination, but “black” tomatoes all seem to have a rich, tangy flavor. That’s why I also sowed seeds of Cherokee Purple. German Giant and Paul Robeson got good reviews. Valencia is a pretty and flavorful orange tomato. Nepal is very good. I’m generally averse to planting any new varieties of cherry tomato because

Sungold is so far ahead of the pack. (One year I tried 20 new cherry tomato varieties; 18 weren’t worth eating.) Still, the mother of a reader of this column insisted that she grows a very productive cherry tomato with a delectable flavor; I’m trying it, merely labeling it “Cherry Tomato.” I’m also growing Gardener’s Delight cherry tomato: a variety that I grew and enjoyed decades ago, and that disappointed me last year. This year’s Gardener’s Delight, from a different source, might taste different. I’m also growing Ping Pong cherry tomato, which I enjoyed (but can’t remember why) when visiting the Hudson Valley Seed Library (www.seedlibrary.org) last summer. I also can’t remember why I ordered seed of Weisnicht’s Ukrainian tomato, but I’m growing it.

Kids’ Almanac Writes!

Women’s Voices Conference: Women Writers Past and Present” at Historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz. Each week, a guest contributor will provide a writing prompt in the column and on the Almanac Weekly’s Facebook page. You are invited to write a short piece based on the prompt, and to post your work as a reply to the Facebook posting. My desire is to provide an opportunity for more people of all ages and at all levels of experience to connect with their own voice through writing, to be heard and to feel some of that same joy and inspiration that I received over the course of that wonderful conference weekend. Grady Kane-Horrigan is back this week with his second round of Kids’ Almanac prompts for the month of April. Thank you, Grady! And happy writing, everyone!

I pledge to read the printed word It’s a movement that’s catching on. It’s not hard to see why. Studies show readers retain more when they read on paper compared to a screen. And in a world bent on speeding us up, it’s nice to sit back and relax with the paper.

The theme for this year’s event is “Edibles and Ornamentals.” The day will include 16 different hands-on classes, including courses on managing pests organically, unusual fruits to grow in a home garden, growing aromatic and flavorful hops and an introduction to growing mushrooms.

art gallery and art school, and the fervent admiration of generations of devoted art students. To his personal credit, he leaves a lasting legacy of art, beauty and a sustaining example, having led a life of purpose with unwavering determination and accomplishment. Born on April 8, 1922 in Richmond Hill, New York, Angeloch served in the US Air Corps and Army during World War II where he was a pilot,

studied to be an engineer and ended up in medical school. He studied at The Art Students League of New York from 1946-1951, where he first began painting with Yasuo Kuniyoshi and printmaking with Martin Lewis. He spent the summer of 1947 learning the craft of making woodcuts with Fiske Boyd and it was that summer that Angeloch first studied nature working out of doors.

he Phoenicia Library was gutted by fire in the early morning hours of Saturday, March 19. Within three days, plans were already in place to open a temporary library on Saturday, March 26, in the building recently vacated by Maverick Family Health, across from the Phoenicia post office. “It’ll be a bare-bones operation,” cautioned library director Tracy Priest. “We’re restoring minimal services, but we want to open our doors. People can return library books and pick up books they’ve ordered from interlibrary loan. From the Mid-Hudson Library System, we’re borrowing a computer and components we need to check books in and out. We’ll open at 10 a.m., and Letter Friends, the early literacy program, will happen at its normal time, 11 a.m. We’re looking eventually to have a small lending library, which may be on the honor system, since all our bar codes were destroyed in the fire.” Writing classes and other programs scheduled for later in the spring will be held as planned. It looks like at least a couple of computers will be donated for use by patrons. The blaze was reported to have come from an electri-

cal fire, which started in the back of the building. “We don’t have a full report on the extent of the damage,” said Priest, who visited the building after the fire with the insurance adjuster and Town of Shandaken supervisor Rob Stanley. “The adjuster said there has to be a second claims adjustment because it’s considered a major loss. We don’t think any books or materials will be salvageable. But because of the location of the fishing collection, we may be able to clean some of that and save it.” The Jerry Bartlett Memorial Angling Collection includes more than 500 fishing and nature books, plus an exhibit of fishing rods, lures, fly tying gear, and photographs. “The books are a mess,” said Priest. “Everything is fused together and melted. What’s in the front of the building has been damaged by smoke and water, but everything there is like we left it. Then you cross a line towards the back, and everything is black. There’s a hole of the ceiling of the children’s room, and you can look right up into my office upstairs. Everything from my desk is on the floor Continued on Page 7

Lloyd voters to decide on term limit extensions for town supervisor, clerk & highway superintendent

T

he latest Onteora Central School District 2011-2012 budget proposal does not include massive layoffs as might be seen in other districts, but does feature the elimination of six teacher positions and reductions to part-time of another five, among job cuts in many sectors. The cuts are seen as a reaction to declining enrollment, but also contribute to a total plan that increases spending by only 0.87 percent, that would translate, based on revenue figures, to a 3.9 percent levy increase. At the Tuesday, March 22 board of education meeting at Woodstock Elementary, school officials presented The Superintendent’s Recommended Budget to trustees that includes an increase in spending to a total of $50,477,497. If the board adopts the budget at its April 5 session, voters will be asked to vote on the budget on May 17. If voters reject the budget proposal, a contingency (or austerity) budget could be put in place that would eliminate $121,785 from the equipment budget line, as mandated by the

90 Miles to present “I Remember Mama”

An Angeloch sky Beloved artist passes on

Onteora board hears of cuts, tax rates, layoffs

INETY MILES OFF Broadway will present “I Remember Mama” at the New Paltz Reformed Church on Nov. 2, Nov. 3, Nov. 9 and Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. The play will also be performed at the First United Methodist Church in Highland on Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. The story shows how Mama,

with the help of her husband and her Uncle Chris, brings up the children in a modest San Francisco home during the early years of the century. Mama, with sweetness and capability, sees her children through childhood, managing to educate them and to see one of her daughters begin a career as a writer. Mama’s sisters and uncle furnish a rich

background for a great deal of comedy and a little incidental tragedy. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $8 for students on opening night only, $12 for seniors/students and advanced sales and $10 for members/groups. For additional information, e-mail email@ninetymilesoffbroadway.com or call 256-9657.

N TUESDAY, NOV. 6, not only will residents vote on numerous contended races -- most notably being who shall become the president of the US -- but there will also be a plethora of local votes cast for federal, state, county and municipal political leaders. In the Town of Lloyd, the only local referendum on the ballot is for voters to decide whether or not the town clerk, town highway superintendent and town supervisor should have their two-year terms extended to four years. These are all separate referenda, as suggested by Lloyd supervisor Paul Hansut, who said that he wants to give “voters a chance to weigh in on each and every position, and not lump them all together, as many towns have done in the past.” The idea behind the four-year term, according to Hansut, is to give those elected to office “enough time to get familiar with the nuts and bolts of the job, Continued on page 12

A cut above Esopus papercutting artist extraordinaire Jenny Lee Fowler

W

hen Jenny Lee Fowler moved from Oregon in 1997, she decided to mark each snowfall that first winter in the East by cutting a snowflake out of paper. Being a person who makes things by hand, it seemed like a fun thing to do. Then, like the icy flakes that drift lazily on the wind before becoming a full-fledged storm, the act of cutting paper snowflakes took on a momentum of its own as Fowler became fascinated with the folk tradition of papercutting. One day, her father-in-law asked her if she’d ever done a portrait, like the silhouettes created by folk artists. Her interest piqued, Fowler dared herself to cut 100 portraits of people. Beginning with friends and family, she later moved on to cutting portraits of strangers, who would sit for her at the campus center at Bard, where Fowler worked. “I practiced a lot and found that I totally loved it,” says Fowler. “It kind of surprised me because I’d thought of silhouette portraits as these kind of ‘stuffy’ things, and then I realized that they were really cross-sections of people at a moment in time.

This unique looking feline loves humans but would rather not have to deal w/other cats, she wants to be the only one receiving your love! FOR ADOPTION; Brother & Sister 7-month old kittens. Simon; handsome gray and white kitty; his beautiful sister, Sasha, is black & white. Both are spayed & neutered, up to date w/shots & litter pan trained. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a loving foster home & very bonded to one another. Since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re extremely shy, they need a home w/people willing to give them as much time as they need to adjust.

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now tame & oh, so sweet! William is especially shy. Perfect scenario is if all 3 could be adopted together as they support one another. If interested in just Copper & Sweet Cream or only William, please let me know! For more information about these wonderful cats, please email carriechapman@gmail.com or call (347)258-2725.
