TALK ON DEMISE OF HUDSON RIVER FISHERY AT BEACON INSTITUTE

F

or centuries, the Hudson River set the rhythm of life for generations of fishermen who relied on its bounty for their livelihoods. Despite the Hudson’s reputation as an environmental success story, its long tradition of commercial net fishing is over. Environmentalist John Cronin will explore the loss PHOTO RECOVERED BY HOWARD GOODMAN of the Hudson’s commercial fishing culture in a talk titled, “The Hudson Riverman: The Long Life and Untimely Death of an American Icon,” on Thursday, May 15 at 7 p.m. at the Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries of Clarkson University. Cronin, who was the Beacon Institute’s founding director, CEO and the River’s full-time Riverkeeper for 17 years, has worked as an advocate, legislative and congressional aide, commercial fisherman, professor, author and filmmaker. The talk will include excerpts from his award-winning documentary The Last Rivermen. The story of the Hudson riverman’s swift decline coincides with the rise of industrial pollution, which began to contaminate populations of striped bass, catfish, eel, perch, carp and sturgeon by the 1960s. It was undeniable evidence of highly toxic levels of PCBs in fish, particularly the striped bass, that first forced New York State regulators to institute closures of the Hudson River fisheries in 1975. Collapsing fish populations shut down the entire net fishery in 2010. “Hudson rivermen understand the estuary in ways that only those who live and breathe the river can,” said Cronin. “Their culture was ruined by a continuing combination of ‘corporate abuse and regulatory failure,’ a state court judge found in 1976.” The talk will take place on Thursday at the Institute’s Center for Environmental Innovation and Education at Denning’s Point in Beacon. The evening is free and open to the public, but online registration at www.bire.org is requested.

1937

May 8, 2014

Actor, comedian, writer and producer Bill Cosby was born William Henry Cosby Jr. on July 12, 1937, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Bill Cosby to perform at the Civic Center in Poughkeepsie

B

ill Cosby, who comes to Poughkeepsie for a singlenight performance benefiting the Mid-Hudson Civic Center on Thursday, May 15, draws a smile to everyone’s lips. One generation knows him from his late-1950s and early-1960s comedy recordings, while the next recalls his being the first black TV star on I Spy, alongside Robert Culp. There are those raised on the Fat Albert cartoons, and then the iconic and still-great-inrerun Cosby Show of the 1980s. He has also been a regular on Captain Kangaroo, Sesame Street and The Electric Company. People admire Cosby for having gone back to college to get a teaching degree that he used both to teach and to inform his comedy work, as well as for his many awards and the books that he has written along the way – including the current bestselling memoir, I Didn’t Ask to Be Born, But I’m Glad I Was. Moreover, he has been married to the same woman for 50 years now, and stays close with his five kids and growing numbers of grandchildren. Cosby’s known for the way that he plays his smarts and quick ability to talk about many subjects with his deep sense of history and humanity, of humility and the gentle enabling elements in a bit of selfdenigration. His takes on Noah, bullying, scary movies, softhearted Dads who give cake for breakfast and the logic of childhood provided an instant antithesis – and antidote – to all things political that he witnessed and played against over his long career. In addition to its mission to provide

“cultural, recreational and education opportunities to the Hudson Valley,� the Civic Center sponsors others’ performances, events and activities – which Cosby will be supporting with his performance. Talk about a treat for all levels of a family, and oneself. – Paul Smart Bill Cosby, Thursday, May 15, 8 p.m., $65/$55/$45, Mid-Hudson Civic Center, 1 Civic Center Plaza, Poughkeepsie; (800) 745-3000, (845) 454-5800, www. ticketmaster.com, www.midhudsonciviccenter.org.

Oliva Contemporary Dance Project this Saturday at Kaatsbaan The Kaatsbaan International Dance Center presents the Oliva Contemporary Dance Project on Saturday, May 10 at 7:30 p.m. Selected from more than 60 applicants, the Oliva Contemporary Dance Project (OCDP) is a co-recipient of Kaatsbaan’s annual Upstream Residency Program. The Upstream Program, offering companies weeklong residencies and performance opportunities at Kaatsbaan, encourages and promotes new and emerging companies from all forms of dance. Residencies allows artists unfettered time to create new work and hone existing choreographies. The Oliva Contemporary Dance Company was founded in 2012 in New York City by artistic director Michele Oliva and is co-directed by Francesca Dario. The company seeks to develop a new movement language that alters and disrupts classical form and technique. In addition to OCDP, Oliva is a guest teacher for workshops in Italy and around the world. He currently teaches at the Broadway Dance Center and Peridance Capezio Center in New York City. Dario received much of her formal training in Italy. She has performed with numerous companies throughout Europe and the US. The evening’s program will offer the

Bill Cosby

world premiere of lightISlife, the latest of OCDP’s work. Using actual objects of light, the dancers will explore their own emotions and investigate what happens when those thoughts and feelings come to light and intersect with others. Oliva’s movement vocabulary is always inspired by the music that he uses. Once he has created a specific phrase, he offers it to the dancers to interpret individually using their own unique styles and musicality. Kaatsbaan is a nonprofit, professional creative residence and performance facility situated on a 153-acre historic site in Tivoli. Founded in 1990, it provides

Francine Prose reads new novel in Rhinebeck this Saturday Best-selling  author  Francine Prose will give a free reading of her book Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932, on Saturday, May 10 at 7 p.m. at Oblong Books & Music in Rhinebeck. Prose has written numerous best-selling books of fiction, including A Changed Man and Blue Angel, which was a finalist for the National Book Award, and the nonfiction New York Times bestseller Reading like a Writer. Her novel Household Saints was adapted for a movie by Nancy Savoca. Another novel, The Glorious Ones, has been adapted by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty into a musical of the same name, which ran at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York City in the fall of 2007. Her highly anticipated latest novel, Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932, is a story of love, art and betrayal, the genesis of evil, the unforeseen consequences of love and the ultimate unreliability of storytelling itself. Oblong Books & Music is located at 6422 Montgomery Street in Rhinebeck. Call (845) 876-0500 for more information.

to the O+ Festival in Kingston, situating it in the cavernous “back room” of BSP: a giant, weathered and gutted theater ideal for the enactment of ritual pageantry and post-apocalyptic blood sport. What good fortune this turned out to be for the happening young indie band And the Kids! The Northampton trio’s O+ set coincided with the BRAWL – or rather, with the end of the BRAWL and the dismissal of its audience. Without other means of egress, the large and roused BRAWL crowd had no choice but to filter past the stage in BSP while And the Kids performed. To the surprise of no one who has seen them, And the Kids took care of the rest like fishing in a bucket, arresting the BRAWLers and everyone else within earshot with their dramatic, electric, alien-siren pop.

And the Kids convert listeners to fans at a rate approaching 100 percent, but the BRAWL scene made for an especially congenial and receptive target. Theatrical in a way that seems less like theater and more like genuinely dangerous ritual, the glitter-faced, all-female And the Kids appeal directly to a mythic and wild place in the mind: They are strident and spangled, lithe and aggressive, animalistic and fantastic, displaced in time and tradition. It’s pop music for a different race, a different species that it aims to coax into being. Since then, And the Kids have been the toast of Kingston and a special favorite of the influential O+ scenesters. They’ve been back on several occasions, most notably opening at BSP for the Austin indie/classical collective Mother Falcon

MOVIE

ALMANAC ALMANACWEEKLY WEEKLY

May 8, 2014

IN AN INSPIRED BIT OF CASTING, Eve is portrayed by that most wraithlike of contemporary actresses, Tilda Swinton. Though she looks like death-warmed-over in nearly any part, she brings an indefatigable joie de vivre to this undead character

In the twilight of their years Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is a wry, elegiac tale of vampires outliving their heyday

T

hese days, when one describes the work of an independent filmmaker, the term “quirky” is often among the first adjectives that leap to mind – in fact, it almost seems to have become obligatory. But there was a time when it was not so. The earliest American indie films, in the ’60s and ’70s, tended to elude mainstream funding (and audiences) because they were too serious, too earnest, arty and intellectual – or too political. The “quirky” bit didn’t really come into the critics’ lexicon in a big way until the downtown-Manhattan indie boom of the 1980s. And, probably more than any other filmmaker of the day, it was Jim Jarmusch who put the quirk in the new cinematic aesthetic. Jarmusch’s big breakthrough film, Stranger than Paradise, set the template for his low-key, mournfully staged, ironically humorous shaggy-dog-story style of storytelling. Most of his films are arguably road movies, although the enervated, socially fringy characters in them tend not to be going anywhere of significance or doing much of anything, really. There’s a lot more talk than action

Vampires Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton in Only Lovers Left Alive

– though even the dialogue is spare, often punctuated by long silences. You laugh at certain lines without quite knowing why, and some of them stay with you a long time. I can’t think of Elvis Presley anymore without pronouncing it “Eruvis” in my head like the Japanese teenagers headed for Graceland in Mystery Train, or win a hand at cards without announcing “I om de veener” like the Hungarian grandmother in Stranger than Paradise. It’s hard to say what it is about Jarmusch’s oeuvre that gets under the viewer’s skin so persistently, or how a movie can be so engaging when it breaks all the accepted rules of drama. Sitting

They have had time to master all the arts and sciences and serve as mentors to humanity’s greatest geniuses. But eternal life brings with it a sense of ennui, along with despair

down in a dark theatre to watch one is like stepping into another dimension where time slows down enough for us to pay attention to all the odd minutiae of daily life that normally fly by and escape our notice. That’s a fair description of the lifestyle of Adam and Eve, the vampire protagonists of Jarmusch’s latest effor t, Only Lovers Left Alive. We don’t know for sure if they are really supposed to be the progenitors of the human race, but we do know that they have been around for many centuries. They can move faster than the eye can see or in languorous slow motion, and they’ve seen it all. They have had time to master all the arts and sciences and serve as mentors to humanity’s greatest geniuses. But eternal life brings with it a sense of ennui, along with despair that humans – to whom Adam (Tom Hiddleston, in a role originally intended for Michael Fassbender) refers contemptuously as “zombies” – have made such a royal mess of the talents and resources that they were given, or had their best ideas (notably the technological breakthroughs of Nicola Tesla) suppressed by society. Much more so than the characters in a certain much more commercial series of recent vampire flicks, Adam and Eve lead a twilight existence, both literally, in that they go out only at night, and figuratively, in that their best days seem to be behind them. Living on the grim, deserted outskirts of Detroit as a brilliant, reclusive rock star in the modern era, Adam has become depressed enough to contemplate suicide – attainable, in this version of vampire lore, by use of a wooden bullet. But he gets a new lease on life when Eve, the eternal soulmate whom he has married at least four times, flies in from Tangier to cheer him up. In an inspired bit of casting, Eve is portrayed by that most wraithlike of contemporary actresses, Tilda Swinton. Though she looks like death-warmed-

ALMANAC WEEKLY

May 8, 2014 artform that Eve canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy, since the two of them subsist solely on human blood, served in tiny cordial glasses. And modern times have not been kind to vampiresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to feed themselves in a civilized manner (i.e., without killing people), since the supply of donated blood has become widely contaminated. Adam, who seems to have access to unlimited cash, gets his O-negative by bribing a hospital technician played with great comic timing by Jeffrey Wright. Eveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection in Tangiers is Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yes, that Christopher Marlowe, who according to Jarmusch wrote everything attributed to Shakespeare. Also in the small, uniformly strong cast are Mia Wasikowska as Ava, Eveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loose cannon of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sisterâ&#x20AC;? who creates a crisis when she drops in uninvited on the primal coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s domestic bliss in Detroit, and Anton Yelchin as Ian, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;zombieâ&#x20AC;? who lends Adam a hand when he needs some â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s recording equipment, a vintage guitar or a wooden bullet. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you what line from Only Lovers Left Alive audiences will most likely be quoting for years to come, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a major spoiler; but it does involve the latter two supporting characters. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know it when you hear it. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chiaroscuro nocturnal cinematography of two wildly disparate cities, half a world apart, is exquisite. Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not shot in black-and-white like the early works of Jim Jarmusch, his latest retains the moody, melancholy atmosphere that characterized his early films, leavened by plenty of dark, witty, rueful, tongue-in-cheek humor. And yes, it can still fairly be described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;quirky.â&#x20AC;? Only Lovers Left Alive is an elegy for two prodigiously talented people who have loved well and long and lost pretty much everything but each other, in a world that no longer deserves them. For the rare viewer who can savor a movie in which almost nothing happens, this comes highly recommended. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Frances Marion Platt

Rosendale Theatre screens A Day at the Races this Sunday

INTERNATIONAL DANCE CENTER 120 BROADWAY TIVOLI NY

KAATSBAAN

Harpo, Groucho and Chico return to Rosendale in A Day at the Races (1937) on Sunday, May 11 at 2 p.m. A major hit for MGM, the film also stars Maureen Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Sullivan, Alan Jones and Margaret Dumont and features classic Marx Brothers routines like TutsiFrutsi Ice Cream and the ebullient â&#x20AC;&#x153;All Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chillun Got Rhythmâ&#x20AC;? musical number. Presented by the Rosendale Theatre

in collaboration with Got2Lindy Dance Studios, the screening of A Day at the Races is a tribute to dancer, choreographer and teacher Frankie Manning, whose 100th birthday is being celebrated in 2014.  The Lindy hop sequence in â&#x20AC;&#x153;All Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chillun Got Rhythmâ&#x20AC;? is performed by the absolutely marvelous Whiteyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lindy Hoppers, of which Manning was a leading member. After the film there will be short panel discussion about the life and work of Frankie Manning. Admission costs $9 for members, $10 for non-members and $6 for children 12 and under.  The program will last approximately two hours. Immediately following the program, a swing dance party will be held next door at the Belltower (separate admission charge). For directions or more information, go to www.rosendaletheatre.org or www. got2lindy.com or call (845) 658-8989. A Day at the Races is ranked by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 funniest films of all time, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;All Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chillun Got Rhythmâ&#x20AC;? was nominated for the short-lived Academy Award for Best Dance Direction in 1937. The sequence features a delightful cameo appearance by the Duke Ellington Orchestra.  Frankie Manning revolutionized the course of the Lindy hop with his innovations, including the Lindy air step and synchronized ensemble Lindy routine. As the Swing Era declined, Manning began a career with the US Postal Service, which lasted for 30 years until his rediscovery by a new generation of swing dance enthusiasts in the mid-1980s. He won a 1989 Tony Award for his choreography in Black and Blue and continued to teach and choreograph until his death in 2009, shortly before his 95th birthday.

be screened this Saturday, May 10 at 2:30 p.m. at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck. A question-and-answer session with the director will follow. In Bombay, a city of brutal working conditions and success stories so unreal that they could be fairy tales, Raja Menon sets out to make a movie about the men and women who quietly serve the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealthy: the sort of film that Bollywood would never make. To tell his story about the working poor, Barah Aana, Menon enlists two foreign producers, a star cast and a hardworking, seasoned film crew. Battling crowds and corruption, the determined team overcomes every obstacle to get the film made and finance its release. But how will they convince people who see extreme hardship every day to pay the high price to see it fictionalized onscreen? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a struggle faced by indie filmmakers everywhere, given a new curry-flavored spin for these multiculti times. Tickets for Bombay Movie at Upstate Films Rhinebeck this Saturday cost $15 for adults, $14 for seniors and students and $13 for members. A post-screening reception will be held at Cinnamon Indian Cuisine, just down the road from the theatre, following the film and discussion.

n Andrea Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s YouTube video Cuts, the camera scans a photographic image of a green forest as it is being sliced by a laser cutter. The whine of the machine and the glittery fractures that appear in the clear Plexiglas surface convey a sense of menace and violence, even as you realize that actual trees arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being cut down and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only the illusion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; first, that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re viewing an actual forest, second, that the surface consists of three-dimensional plastic rather the paper of a photograph â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being desecrated. The piece is as much about perception as it is a metaphor of the fragility of forests and powerful forces of technology, hinting at the interweaving complexities of the contemporary world and the challenges inherent in saving the planet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not the least of which is our misperception of the forest itself.

Your Mother should know...

Part of Andrea Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Systems:Tree series. Frank is in the midst of accumulating an extensive archive that eventually will capture particular locations in the Shawangunks throughout the seasons and otherwise document changes through time.

Frank, an artist who is an assistant professor of Art at SUNY-New Paltz, is showing two new pieces at the Team Love RavenHouse Gallery, located in New Paltz, related to the local forest. One of the pieces is a collaged photograph of a mossy log that is 13 feet long. Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new work represents an approach based on research and science, rather than sentiment, as the best way to express her deep concerns about the damage to the environment caused by human activity. Over the last year, she accompanied Mohonk Preserve forester Ethan Pierce and researcher Shanan Smiley on several expeditions into the surrounding forest, taking pictures while they collected data. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned that invasive species are a big problem. If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t manage the forest, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have lots of vines and a completely different forest, which has nothing to do with what we have now,â&#x20AC;?

said Frank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re losing the complexity, and complexity is life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little shocking to understand what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing and know how dire the situation is.â&#x20AC;? Besides decaying logs, her subjects include burnt-over areas and oldgrowth forests, located mainly in the Shawangunks as well as near Nyack. She is in the midst of accumulating an extensive archive that eventually will capture particular locations throughout the seasons and otherwise document changes through time. In Systems: Tree, Frank has painted out sections of the collaged digital photograph. She said that, because the complexity of the sustainable systems in nature transcends our comprehension, by pasting many small pictures together, as a way of following and concentrating on a detail and then isolating that feature in the digital images by blocking out the background with white or gray paint, she hopes to create a system of engagement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intuitive. Painting is a system that helps us understand whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out there. The piece makes the forest more readable. Also, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? Gallery-owner Cornelia Calder said that smaller pieces in the series, which help provide a context, will be available to viewers on request.

moving to New York City, where she received her MFA from Parsons the New School for Design and participated in the highly competitive Studio Program of the Whitney Independent Study Program, is fascinated by the intersection of technology and nature as well as the local and global. She has recently had solo shows in New York, Boston, Venice, Italy and Goppingen, Germany and taught for nine years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she studied system dynamics and produced a book of interviews with 33 researchers, each of whom specialized in a particular technology; collectively, the interviews enable the reader to make connections across t h e d i ff e r e n t disciplines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m offering the reader these different pieces of a puzzle and putting them in a book, which is unusual,â&#x20AC;? she said. While at MIT, she got â&#x20AC;&#x153;super-interestedâ&#x20AC;? in system dynamics and audited some courses on the topic. The notion of â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinking in systemsâ&#x20AC;? pushed her work in new directions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and also her method of exhibiting it. For example, in her show in Italy, Frank juxtaposed work related to the extinction of species with her series on global trade. Exhibiting the two disparate series â&#x20AC;&#x153;forced the viewer to think about these together and how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re implicated. Our ways of thinking seem so natural, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re learned. We have to challenge our societal paradigm and our habits. Our ideas of how the world should be and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good need to be reconsidered.â&#x20AC;? The global trade series evolved after Frank spent several months in Venice on an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residency and became fascinated by the large container ships docked near the Lido, which formed such a contrast to the beautiful, historic city. She went out on a boat with a friend and began shooting them, which led to a project photographing freighters around the world. Having witnessed the sinews of global trade in action, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her reaction? Frank sums it up in a single word: â&#x20AC;&#x153;absurd. Having 20 ships bring one piece of equipment to a certain destination in the cheapest way possible is a huge waste of energy, pollution, and creates waste,��&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While once trade involved importing expensive spices and silks from Asian, now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheap baseball caps. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need the stuff. We need one good hat, not a bunch.â&#x20AC;? She added that â&#x20AC;&#x153;The complexity and logistics of global shipping are mind-boggling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a feat, timing and scheduling all these containers so that

SUNY-New Paltz unveils Tom Otterness’ Gulliver next Thursday If you don’t instantly recognize the name of Tom Otterness, here’s a clue: Ever been down in the A/L train subway stop at 14th Street and Eighth Avenue in Manhattan and noticed a bunch of small figures mischievously stashed away doing various sorts of business all over the place? Or walked up from Battery Park City along the Hudson, where hundreds more of these small figures group together in strange, pointed narratives? On Thursday, May 15, Otterness installs a 36-foot-long outdoor sculpture, Gulliver, smack-dab in the middle of the SUNY-New Paltz campus, just in time for the college’s commencement weekend. Located on the Fine Art Building Plaza at the center of campus, near the Sojourner Truth Library, with views of the Shawangunk Ridge in the distance, it will stay up through the New Year. The bronze sculpture is made up of a short geometric torso and long tubular legs ending in large feet, surrounded by smaller Lilliputians. The Otterness sculpture is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition  “Dick Polich: Transforming Metal into Art” at the school’s Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, which follows the legacy of the Beacon-based art foundry founder and owner at whose sites Otterness has been working for years, and where Gulliver was cast in 2002. “Dick Polich: Transforming Metal into Art,” including work by Roy Lichtenstein, Nancy Graves, Isamu Noguchi, Martin Puryear and many others, opens in late August, following the run of the Dorsky’s annual regionwide overview exhibit, curated this year by Ian Barry of Saratoga’s Tang Museum. Get on campus and see this fun work. – Paul Smart

Gulabi Gang screening, Q&A with director at WAAM this Sunday

F

rom the Nigerian bush to the shadowy corridors of the Vatican to the fictional land of Westeros, the subject of violence against women has recently welled to the surface of public consciousness to a degree not seen since Susan Brownmiller’s Against Our Will was published in 1975. An upsurge in gang rapes in India – especially one notorious incident on a bus in Delhi in 2012 that proved fatal – has fueled worldwide concern about the issue and helped spur the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women to reach consensus, after long delay, on policies toward the elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls It’s heartening to know that not all of India’s women are taking these outrages lying down. In fact, there’s a popular movement in rural Bundelkhand that boasts 150,000 members: women dressed in hot-pink saris and armed with sticks, fighting rape, domestic violence and honor killings under the charismatic leadership of Sampat Pal Devi. They’re called the Gulabi Gang, and the award-winning Mumbai-based filmmaker Nishtha Jain has made a highly praised documentary of the same name about the struggles of this audacious group of female vigilantes. This Sunday, May 11 – the day after its screening at the New York India Film Festival – Gulabi Gang will be shown at the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum. Nishtha Jain will be on hand for a live discussion and question-and-answer session following the 5 p.m. screening. Got a Mom who’s a real survivor? Take her to see this eye-opening film for Mothers’ Day! Tickets cost $10 general admission, $7 for members. To find out more about this event at WAAM, visit www.woodstockart.org/ documentary-film.

each arrives at a certain place and time.” With her Systems series, Frank is now focused on the area around New Paltz, and her fascination with the local meant that she was excited to have the opportunity of showing locally. “I’ve always engaged with my environment,” she said, noting that she was a participant in a Germanybased group called the Department of Public Appearances while she was living in New York City, making work related to her experience as an immigrant and specifically focusing on her German background. “I respond to where I am and try to use the available tools. After I got this job at SUNY-New Paltz, my focus shifted to nature.” In fact, her move to the mid-Hudson Valley was perfectly timed, considering her growing concern about climate change and the degradation of the environment – besides the fact that the community is ideal for raising her fiveyear-old daughter. Frank is already shooting for another series, called Search of Tree-Climbers, in which she aims her camera straight up through the trees into the sky. The series is related to “this idea of perfection and wanting to escape from Earth.” She’s also working on another project called Feedback, which is related both to her love of systems and the community. It involves having conversations with people about

the community’s challenges and then having them do a “systems drawing” to illustrate their concerns and thoughts. “By making a map, we can see how people fit into the larger picture. We did one with colleagues, seeing how we could figure out how to work together. Looking at everything together is impossible, but at least we can try,” she said, noting that many of the world’s problems stem from producing something without considering the repercussions. “With this piece, New Paltz is a case study of how we can transform our ways of transporting waste, so we are living sustainably. It’s thinking big and small.” Frank’s photographic pieces are the latest in a series of experimental art shows at the Team Love RavenHouse Gallery, which is located in a space adjacent to the offices of Team Love Records, an independent record label founded by Calder’s husband, Nate Krenkel, 11 years ago. The Gallery (directly across from the synagogue) also hosts music events and talks related to the art on display. For example, this fall Calder plans to accompany the Gallery’s annual diorama ULSTER PUBLISHING’S REASON

Zhang Huan at Storm King

T

he idyllic vista of the Storm King Art Center’s sweeping lawns punctuated by modern sculptures has enchanted motorists traveling north on the New York State Thruway for decades. It’s a pastoral vision imbued with urban sophistication: Mark Di Suvero’s soaring, asymmetrical assemblages crafted of industrial steel beams, for instance, bear a clear kinship to the bold gestural painting Zhang Huan, Three Legged Buddha, 2007. Gift of Zhang Huan and The Pace Gallery of Abstract Expressionism, a movement rooted in the lofts of lower Manhattan. fragment of a gold-plated Buddha that was stolen from a Tibetan monastery during Arriving at the sculpture park in Mountainville and venturing on foot across its the Cultural Revolution – represent a departure from the formalism that otherwise 500 acres of rolling fields and woods, the vision remains intact.

The image seems imbued with violence, but Zhang Huan himself interprets planes of steel carve out dynamic forms in space, and Alexander Lieberman’s Adam, it differently. In an interview with Pernilla Holmes posted on his website, he noted an arrangement of giant orange cylinders perched on a hilltop, maximizes their that he once strapped a black plastic mannequin leg to his left leg (the artist achieved dramatic, elemental character, as if each work were a personage in an ancient Greek fame in the 1990s as a performance artist, first in China, later in New York) and drama and the field, sky, copses of trees and drenching daylight were the stage. considers a third leg to be “an origin of life and mythical power.” The worn patina The most intimate space is the courtyard abutting the museum, which is of the Tibetan Buddha fragment moved him; he writes of a similar piece installed populated with the smaller welded-steel pieces of David Smith: brushed-steel in London that, “According to the world of Samsara, Buddha is human, human is Buddha. Causality produces effects. I hope that this Three-Legged Buddha from the Cubistlike assemblages of geometric volumes and more delicate, linear pieces with figurative imagery that read as East will bring harmony to London and the world.” multiple drawings in space.

When the mainframe ruled Kingston: The IBM Years now on view at Friends of Historic Kingston Gallery

COLLECTION OF FRIENDS OF HISTORIC KINGSTON

In 1952, IBM started working with the US Defense Department to design and build a supercomputer for the North American Defense System. SAGE, headquartered in Kingston, was one of the most important projects in IBM history and was later described by a University of Pennsylvania professor as one of “four monumental projects that changed the modern world.”

n his highly influential study of the corporate suburbanization of America in the 1950s, The Organization Man, sociologist William H. Whyte reported with amusement that IBM employees told him that the acronym really stood for “I’ve Been Moved.” Among the sprawl communities spawned by the construction of industrial parks to which “Beemers” might be relocated for the company’s convenience were, of course, the newer neighborhoods fringing Kingston, New York. When a company as massive as IBM hits its boom years, its impact on the shape of cities large and small has profound reverberations, persisting even long after its role in the world and national economy has significantly declined. The Friends of Historic Kingston (FoHK) have put together an ambitious exhibit documenting Kingston: The IBM Years, currently on view in the organization’s Gallery at the corner of Wall and Main Streets in Uptown Kingston. The show spotlights some of IBM’s signature achievements during its 40year stay in Ulster County, including the SAGE air defense system and System/360 mainframe, but with an equal focus on the people who worked for the computer giant and the lives and neighborhoods that they created for themselves locally. Under the direction of professor Roger Panetta of Fordham University, FoHK volunteers recorded more than 50 oral histories of people in the community, including IBMers themselves and others

who did business with the company. The exhibit will include one of the earliest electric typewriters produced in Kingston, and rare vintage photographs of the SAGE project, the testing floor for the System/360 mainframe and the typewriter assembly line. IBMers have lent their employee badges and scrapbooks filled with mementos. Also included in the exhibit will be new photographs, commissioned from Hudson Valley photographer Stephen

Benson, of post-World War II residential, commercial, civic and religious structures, from Cape-style houses in Whittier in Ulster Landing to ranch houses in Rolling Meadows in Hurley, plus Kingston’s Temple Emanuel on Albany Avenue and the M. Clifford Miller Junior High School in Lake Katrine. An illustrated book, co-published with Black Dome Press and featuring an essay by novelist Gail Godwin, accompanies the exhibition. Admission to Kingston: The IBM Years, which will run though October 31, is free. Check the FoHK website at www.fohk.org for hours and details of associated talks and programs. – Frances Marion Platt

Talk on British takeover of New Netherlands this Saturday in Port Ewen How was it that 350 years ago the Dutch Colony of New Netherlands became the English Colony of New York? Anne Gordon, Ulster County historian and Klyne Esopus Museum trustee, will explain all as she delivers the Spring

Lecture of the Ed and Ruth Ford Speakers Series on Saturday, May 10. The British takeover marked a notable shift in the fate of the two empires. Prominent in the discussion will be Dutch governor Peter Stuyvesant, whose role in the Dutch capitulation has been hotly debated. Gordon will also delve into the stubborn “Dutchiness” of Ulster County and its people, despite the ascendancy of the English power. The lecture begins at 4 p.m. at the Esopus Town Hall’s Community Room at 284 Broadway in Port Ewen. Attendees should park at the lower level on the north side of the building. Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served afterwards. For more information about the event, call (845) 331-8191.

James Jerry Falanga started it all in 1939, at the age of 23; and after 50 years of operating it, he sold the business to Joe Tippa.

He also makes mozzarella rolls from scratch, filled with prosciutto, pepperoni, sun-dried tomato or spinach/roasted garlic – the latter especially popular in the summer months, he says. The original mozzarella was made from the milk of water buffalo, many centuries ago when the Italians began to import the beasts from India. Mozzarella may or may not have been created as a result of a happy accident, when fresh cheese curds fell into some hot water somewhere around Naples. The cheese had to be eaten right away because of lack of refrigeration; but even with modern technology, the fresher the better. Although the Nazis killed the water buffalo before retreating, the industry revitalized and mozzarella di bufala remains ever-popular, albeit pricey. In Italy, cows’ milk mozzarella is called fior di

The milk is treated so that it forms curds, which are then heated until they become stretchy strings, or pasta filata, which is then shaped into balls of various sizes or flattened and filled to make a flavored roll.

But you don’t have to travel to exotic distant shores to commune with these ancient and mysterious reptilians. Many smaller species still trundle their quiet,

Each box turtle’s shell pattern is as distinctive as a fingerprint box turtles on the 65-acre Smith Property in Gardiner, where the Smith family, with the aid of biologist Joe Bridges, have been monitoring the creatures’ movements and habits since 2005. The general public is invited; you’re just asked to preregister. With their high-domed carapaces and distinctive orange-on-black rosette patterns, Eastern box turtles (Terrapene carolina) are among the most charming of their kind. They’re not aggressive like snapping turtles, and can be picked up even by a child with no greater peril than that the animal might express its alarm by urinating on you. Indeed, WVLT’s annual Turtle Day is a kid-friendly event, with young folks successfully spotting turtles in years past. Your kids may even get to see a pair mating, this time of year. The Smiths also train Australian

cattledogs to track the creatures by their scent during seasons when the grass is too high to spot them, and have placed electronic transmitters on several turtles in order to monitor their movements via telemetry. The data gathered at the site over the years add to the body of scientific knowledge about this species – for example, reinforcing herpetologists’ observations that female box turtles will return to the same site year after year to lay their eggs, trekking as far as two-thirds of a mile each way. Each box turtle’s shell pattern is as distinctive as a fingerprint, so when you find one, your hosts will photograph it and compare it with past sightings to identify the particular animal. Many individuals are seen multiple times in subsequent years, ranging far and wide. A few with notable “personalities” have been given names, but mostly the Smiths’ turtles are known by their numbers. Last year’s count totaled 70 adult turtles and seven hatchlings. Sound intriguing? Preregister and get directions by calling (845) 2552761 or e-mailing your name, telephone number and mailing address to info@ wallkillvalleylt.org.

SPRING WASSAIL BALKAN DANCE PARTY THIS SATURDAY AT BREEZY HILL ORCHARD

B

reezy Hill Orchard and Cider Mill in Staatsburg will host the 18th annual Spring Wassail Balkan Dance Party on Saturday, May 10. It starts at 2 p.m. and continues well into the night, says Elizabeth Ryan, who has farmed the site since 1984 and produces cider from its bounty. The event will feature Balkan food, music and dance along with cider-tastings, including the launch of a new hard cider aged in bourbon barrels, and a traditional Celtic candlelight ceremony in which the assembled will sing to the apple trees to ensure a bountiful harvest. The Celtic ceremony was inspired by Ryan’s travels in England. “The word ‘wassail’ was originally was-hael, which means ‘to your health,’” she says. “In its oldest tradition, in preChristian England, they went to the biggest tree in the orchard and drank hard cider. The other part of the tradition is a huge bonfire, which we also do. The idea was: You’re lighting the darkness and ushering in a new year.” Ryan explains that the ceremony was traditionally held in the dead of winter, but carrying on the tradition now in spring, they’re ushering in a new cider year, accompanied by the singing of the oldest version of an authentic wassail song. So where does the Balkan part of all this come in? “In 1977, I went to Bulgaria to study its legendary Balkan singing,” Ryan says. “We were one of the first American groups to go. I fell in love with the people and the culture, and traveled there a lot. Since then, I’ve been involved in producing events and working with traditional musicians from the Balkans.” Ryan was also farming apples during those years, and once the Celtic Wassail began to become an annual event, the Balkan performers she knew wanted to be involved. “So we started ‘Balkanizing’ the party,” Ryan says. “The Zlatne Uste Balkan Brass Band plays hard-driving Balkan brass. They represent Serbian, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Romani traditions,” she says. “Then we have Seido Salifoski, a Macedonian Roma who has played dumbek in Balkan and Middle Eastern styles for 30 years, who brings his group, Romski Boji. And you never know whom he’s going to show up with.”

New additions to the performers expected are still being added. “We also have a very famous Bulgarian bagpiper, Nedyalko Ketev, who lives in New York City, and Korinya, a New Paltz-based band of young Ukrainian performers who have just released a selfproduced CD.” Other performers include the Bosilek Bulgarian Folk Dance Ensemble and the Vanaver Caravan Kids with Bill and Livia Vanaver, and dance teacher Steve Kotansky will lead an afternoon dance workshop for attendees to learn Bulgarian dance steps. “The whole thing feels very much like a wedding or a DION OGUST | ALMANAC WEEKLY house party,” says Ryan. “I’m Apple blossom (above) and Zlatne Uste Balkan interested in bringing music Brass Band (left) off the stage and putting it into context. In the Balkans, music is extremely up-close and personal. The boundaries between the performers and the people are very thin. I wanted to have people not just hear this music in bars in New York; I wanted to do what they do over there all the time, which is be outside, dancing. It’s about a 12-hour dance party that usually goes until midnight.” The spread of food that includes wood-fired pizza and a lamb roast is included with the price of admission. Tickets cost $60 for adults with advance purchase ($70 at the gate), $15 for ages six to 17 and free for kids under age six. Admission after 8 p.m. costs $25 and does not include dinner. Camping costs $10 extra. But Ryan emphasizes that it’s not even a “break-even” event for the orchard, whose policy is to have a sliding scale available: Nobody will be turned away. Ryan has also managed Stone Ridge Orchard in Stone Ridge for years. Just last week, she says, she finally closed a deal to purchase the site, once the center of considerable community controversy when it was slated for demolition in order to develop the land. When the housing market collapsed, the land was put up for sale, and after a long period of negotiations and raising $1.3 million with the help of Friends of Stone Ridge Orchard and four land trusts, Ryan says, they’ve purchased the land with plans to open the Rail Trail through it – along with other ventures to be announced. – Sharyn Flanagan Spring Wassail Balkan Dance Party, Saturday, May 10, 2 p.m., $60/$70/$15, Breezy Hill Orchard, 828 Centre Road, Staatsburg; (845) 266-3979, www.hudsonvalleyfarmhousecider.com.

fter this year’s long winter, followed by a stubbornly chilly pattern of temperatures, families may earnestly be looking for an event that captures a robust feeling of spring, beyond nature’s slowly emerging gifts of the yellow forsythia blooms or the peepers’ persistent calls. Van Cortlandt Manor’s Lightscapes is a massive walk-through evening exhibit of springtime motifs glowing with light, creatively crafted from recycled and reclaimed materials. Our entry line was long, but kept moving, and it consisted almost entirely of families with children. As we walked through the exhibit, we heard kids of all ages determining the components of the art pieces, such as milk jugs and clear plastic party cups, while marveling at the quirky mushrooms, counting colorful ladybugs, delighting in a stroll through the caterpillar tunnel and imitating the insect-buzzing sounds emitting from the speakers. The sheer scale of Lightscapes is part of the overall effect of immersing the viewer in an offbeat world of springtimeimagination-meets-Earth-Day. The hospitality tent includes locally made sweet and savory refreshments for sale, and a gift shop loaded with a variety of springtime merchandise for children and adults. Tickets for Lightscapes cost $16 for adults, $12 for children ages 3 through 17, and admission is free for members and children under 3 years. Tickets purchased on-site cost $2 more per ticket. It’s advised to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee admission. Buying tickets to events such as Lightscapes helps to support the historic preservation of Van Cortlandt Manor for years to come. Van Cortlandt Manor is located on South Riverside Avenue in Croton-onHudson. For more information, call (914) 631-8200 or visit www.hudsonvalley.org.

Burroughs Society Birdathon counts species throughout the county This Saturday, May 10 is the John Burroughs Natural History Society (JBNHS) Bird-athon. JBNHS members scour Ulster County for as many bird species as possible, and donors are invited to pledge a dime, quarter or even a dollar per species. A team that spends all day in the field can expect to observe 100 species (which is why this activity is sometimes called a Century Run). I heard that some of them get up at 2 a.m. Did you know that birds migrate at night? Funds are being raised for enhancements at Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge in Galeville, such as benches and an informational kiosk: a wonderful project promoting the only National Wildlife Refuge in the Hudson Valley, and a great way for local families to support this larger effort. For more information or to make a donation, contact Mark DeDea at forsythnature@ aol.com or (845) 339-1277. To learn more about the organization, visit http://jbnhs. org.

GARDENER’S NOTEBOOK

Berry surprising Some unknown knowns worth trying in your garden

T

o paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, defense secretary under W, there are the known knowns, the known unknowns and the unknown unknowns. Donald, you forgot about the unknown knowns. Let’s talk about gardening, not war, and the knowns that need to be better-known. Visitors to my garden (actually workshop attendees) were oohing and aahing over some 18-inch-high stalks, each capped with a crown of leaves beneath which dangled a circle of red blossoms. Aptly named crown imperial, Fritillaria imperialis, deserves to be more widely known. No one seemed put off by

the skunky aroma that suffuses the air even feet away from the plant; I like it. Perhaps crown imperial would be better-known if the bulbs didn’t go for more than ten dollars each. My garden’s profusion of crown imperial stalks is more an indication of my green thumb than my wealth. They all arose from a single bulb that my father gifted me more than 20 years ago. I learned to propagate them by bulb-scaling, which involves digging down into the ground to remove scales from the bulb, then mixing the scales with barely moist potting soil. After a couple of months’ storage at warm temperatures, followed by a couple of months’ storage at cool temperatures, the scales can be

potted up, to be nursed for a season before planting out. Every year I make new crown imperial plants. Will I ever have too many? Crown imperial also has some unknown known kin. You have to see Persian lily, Fritillaria persica, to appreciate it. A written description – foot-high stalks lined with nodding, small, plum-purple-to-gray/ green flowers – doesn’t do justice to the beauty of this bulb. I hope to start multiplying this one also. Another unknown known is Fritillaria michailovskyi, this one with nodding bell-shaped flowers with yellow-

tipped purple petals. Among crown imperial’s kin is also a known known: Guinea hen flower, F. meleagris, with large, nodding checkered flowers. Even White Flower Farm sells these bulbs for less than a dollar each. No wonder they are better-known. Let’s segue over to unknown knowns among fruits. Right now, a billowing wave of white blossoms lines my driveway: the blossoms of Nanking cherry (Prunus tomentosum), a shrub that can grow eight feet high and wide. The show matches that of any other flowering tree or shrub. What do other flowering trees and

NIGHT SKY

Fiery forecast Will the heavens explode in two weeks?

T

his is an exciting time to be watching the sky. Mars, though fading rapidly, is still brilliant. It’s that bright orange star out all night. Saturn arrives at its closest to Earth for the entire year this coming week, far to the lower left of Mars. And Jupiter, though its days of visibility are now numbered, keeps blazing in the west at nightfall as the night’s very brightest star. This Saturday night, May 10, we’ll do a special skywatching session right after sunset on the Walkway over the Hudson to observe this planet extravaganza, stretched across the heavens like a string of pearls. We’ll have telescopes set up, too. The cloud date is Sunday, the 11th. And now, suddenly, on top of all that, comes the real possibility of a brand-new meteor shower. It could be the best of our lives. Perhaps you saw the amazing Leonid shower in the wee predawn hours of November 18, 2001, just two months after the 9/11 tragedy. We had perfectly clear skies, and six brilliant green shooting stars materialized each minute, nearly all of which left behind long lingering trails like Cheshire Cat smiles. That was our region’s best meteor display of the past century. But now, my favorite meteor expert, Peter Jenniskens, predicts a rich new meteor shower produced by a previous close approach of a rather faint comet named Linear. He thinks that we’ll get a storm, when meteors literally fill the sky. Other meteor experts are more conservative, but still think that we should see three or four shooting stars each minute, and they could be brilliant. All of this will unfold during a two- or three-hour

Nanking cherry, though, goes on to bear oodles of small red cherries, with a flavor somewhere between that of sweet and tart cherries. And what does it take to get a decent crop of sweet or tart cherries? Pruning, perhaps spraying and bird control. What does it take to get a crop of Nanking cherries? Nothing; nada; zip. The plants bear heavily with little or no care, and bear enough to satisfy birds, squirrels and humans. Okay, every rose has its thorns. Nanking cherries are small: one-half to five-eighths of an inch in diameter. The smallness is more than offset by plant’s beauty, its profusion of fruits and its low maintenance.

as horticultural oil, sulfur, baking soda, soap or horticultural oil plus baking soda (one-and-a-half tablespoons of baking soda plus three tablespoons of oil in one gallon of water). Right about now, gooseberries can experience one more pest: the imported currantworm, which strips plants of their leaves, beginning at ground level. The leaves will grow back, but the plant is left weakened. A spray just as soon as chewing begins will stop this insect in its tracks; and again, benign products such as insecticidal soap or horticultural oil should be effective. I’m training some of my plants as three-foothigh trees, which might also thwart the worm, because there’ll be no leaves near ground level on which the insects can begin their feast. If all this seems like too much potential trouble for gooseberries, it’s not. The best dessert varieties have flavors that might be compared to that of grape, plum or apricot, and have a “cracking” texture: a crisp flesh that explodes with ambrosial juice when you bite into them. A writer of the last century characterized gooseberries as “the fruit par excellence for ambulant consumption.” I agree, and you might also if they become a known known in your garden.

period. Of all places in the world, the US and southern Canada alone will be well-positioned to see this brief and potentially spectacular shower. It should occur starting around 2 a.m. and last almost until dawn. It’s even on a Friday night – or rather, early Saturday morning. And the Moon will be a harmless crescent, so the sky won’t be spoiled by bright moonlight. We’ll talk about it again next week. But for now, mark your calendar to set the alarm the night of May 23/24, the early hours of Saturday morning, for 1:45 a.m. This has the potential to be the most exciting celestial event in many years. – Bob Berman Want to know more?

And one more unknown known: gooseberries (both gooseberries and Nanking cherries warrant a whole chapter in my book Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden). Many people imagine all gooseberries to be small, green and tart, suitable mostly for cooking. Not so! There are over a hundred varieties of gooseberry in various colors and sizes, and a whole category of them – what the Brits call “dessert varieties” – are for fresh eating. Good flavor is what should warrant gooseberries known known status among fruits. Most important in growing gooseberries is to choose a good variety, both for taste and for resistance to the disease powdery mildew. Don’t plant Pixwell; the berries are small, green and tart. Do plant varieties such as Poorman, Chief, Hinonmakis Yellow, Red Jacket, Captivator and Glendale. They’re all tasty and disease-resistant. If you want even-better flavor and you’re willing to deal with powdery mildew, plant varieties such as Colossal, Whitesmith, Achilles and Webster. Dealing with powdery mildew involves spraying, but it could be something relatively benign, such

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. For this reason he recently Continued on Page 13

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

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

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.

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

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. I started to see them as more dynamic.” Fowler came across a passage in which one of the early papercutters called silhouette portraits “a moment’s monument,” a description that she finds particularly apt. “They really do capture a little moment, and even the same person can have a different portrait the next day,” Fowler explains. Artful papercutting is now Fowler’s niche, and the Continued on page 13

Why newspapers? Print is dead, right? Wrong. Studies show readers retain more of what they read in print because it’s easier to focus. Fewer distractions. The web is great for breaking news bytes, but our in-depth stories are best consumed in print. We only write local stories, so every issue is bound to contain something you didn’t know about your community. You lose that sense of discovery on the web, where you’re less likely to happen on something you weren’t looking for.

(I’m Sampson, a healthy, good natured & (I’m told) handsome CAT guy; solid black w/green eyes.) I was used to being in a home but somehow I was left alone & freezing in the streets of Kingston during this very cold winter. I came begging at someone’s door- I saw the welcome mat! A wonderful person helped me by feeding me & keeping me safe. I’ve also been neutered, had vaccines for rabies & distemper, tested negative for FIV or FeLV, litter box trained and get along w/other kitties. If you’d like to meet me, love me and be friends “furever”, please call

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. For this reason he recently Continued on Page 13

by Violet Snow 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

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

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. I started to see them as more dynamic.” Fowler came across a passage in which one of the early papercutters called silhouette portraits “a moment’s monument,” a description that she finds particularly apt. “They really do capture a little moment, and even the same person can have a different portrait the next day,” Fowler explains. Artful papercutting is now Fowler’s niche, and the Continued on page 13

FOR ADOPTION: “Copper” “Sweet Cream” & “William”; Copper (big, copper boy w/marbleized swirl pattern) & Sweet Cream (petite cream color girl) were found together when they were feral. They’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. MYSTERY; about 10-years old & is a total lap cat. She came to the shelter w/a rash over her whole body. Her skin is beautiful now but she is still feeling the stress of not being in a home. She eats special food as we think she may have food allergies. She’s a petite polydactyl tuxedo so her extra toes can hug you even more! STARFISH; also petite, has a beautiful gray coat & golden eyes. She’s been in the shelter for more than a year. She’s one of the cats rescued from a huge humane law seizure. Before she was rescued, Starfish was picked on by some of the other cats in the hoarder’s house & suffered skin wounds that are improving but taking quite a long time to heal. About 2-3 years & we think a loving home (foster or adoptive) would give Starfish the peace she needs to fully recover. She’s such a sweet & friendly kitty. Separate foster or adoptive homes would be fine for Mystery and Starfish.

Please call the Ulster County SPCA at (845)331-5377 extension 218 (Cat Supervisor) to find out more about these two lovely cats. PROJECT CAT is a non-profit cat RESCUE AND SHELTER.
