John O'Connor at Bright Hill

Bright Hill Press & Literary Center of the Catskills is proud to welcome a Catskills region favorite, singer-songwriter John O'Connor, on Saturday, October 21, at 7:30 pm, as he launches his new album, Rare Songs.      Suggested donation to this event, held at Bright Hill Center, 94 Church Street, is $12, a portion of which will benefit Bright Hill's community programs. Free refreshments will be served. For more information and directions call 607-829-5055 or email wordthur@stny.rr.com.
     In 1983, while living in Seattle, John O'Connor sent a batch of his songs off to Flying Fish Records cold and -- almost unheard of in the music business at that time -- landed a contract to make an album of his powerful original songs. Songs For Our Times came out in 1984 and was named one of the best albums of the year by the Washington Post and several folk publications and radio stations.

   O'Connor's music has always been inseparable from his involvement in working class politics. He began his involvement in the labor movement right out of high school when he went to work in the factories of Waterloo, Iowa. An interest in folk music and Woody Guthrie led to a 30-year career as a folk singer and a cultural educator, performing in concerts, coffeehouses, schools and colleges, union education programs, and political action events.

     He recorded three albums with Flying Fish Records, one of them with the political quartet, 'Shays Rebellion', and a CD on the Chroma label. He also recorded a CD produced in conjunction with Collector Records called "We Ain't Gonna Give It Back", which is regarded by many as one of the best collections of original songs on the American labor movement. The late Joe Glazer said of John, "He writes the best songs about labor you are likely to hear." The St. Paul Pioneer Press Dispatch said of John's music that it is "songwriting...right out of the same well that slaked Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger," while Britain's Southern Rag has said that "John O'Connor deserves to be numbered with the all-time greats of contemporary folk music."

     Some 40 years after walking through the gates of his first factory job, O'Connor is still stalwart in his focus of fighting for the working class and inspiring them with his music and their music. He has traveled the U.S. performing for labor education classes, high schools, colleges and folk audiences. His powerful songs have always, as Tony Harrah of the Guardian said, "mixed seamlessly with the old songs." John's songs have been recorded by numerous singers from around the world. In 2009, the French topical singer, Renaud, adapted and recorded O'Connor's song of deindustrialization, North by North, which went to number one on the French charts.

     O'Connor is also an accomplished poet, publishing his emotionally-charged poems in dozens of  literary magazines and journals. He has won the Associated Writer's Program's Prague Prize and has been nominated twice for a Pushcart Prize. His book of poems, Half the Truth, won the Violet Reed Haas Poetry Award in 2015.

October 13 Declared “Seen Enough Tobacco Day” in NYS

Written By Editor on 10/14/17 | 10/14/17

New York State Reality Check youth declared October 13 as the first ever “Seen Enough Tobacco Day”. The designated tobacco-free day, which will become an annual observance in the state, is an effort to help raise awareness and encourage community members to stand up to eliminate tobacco marketing and advertising in places where youth can see them.

Locally Reality Check youth advocates recorded radio messages that WIOX (Roxbury) and WSDE (Cobleskill) aired to educate community members about the need to reduce tobacco marketing’s influence on youth. They also posted a series of educational lawn signs and pinwheels in Veterans Memorial Centre Park in the Village of Cobleskill, Timothy Murphy Park in the Village of Middleburgh and Veteran’s Park in the Village of Stamford further highlighting tobacco issues to the public and shared photos of the lawn signs on social media using #SeenEnoughTobacco. Parents, community leaders and others interested in protecting youth continue to be encouraged to sign the Seen Enough Tobacco online petition at www.SeenEnoughTobacco.org to pledge their support.


“Reality Check is a group of teens all around New York State who work to expose the manipulative and deceptive marketing tactics of the tobacco industry,” said Ahna Misiewicz, a Reality Check youth advocate from Cherry Valley-Springfield Central School. “It’s hard to believe that tobacco companies spend an estimated 9.6 billion dollars a year to advertise and promote cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. That’s $602,000 every day in New York State.”

According to Ava Valetutto, a Reality Check youth advocate from Sharon Springs Central School, “The average age of a new smoker is 13 and we know that tobacco marketing causes young people to start smoking. Just ask the U.S. Surgeon General. That’s why we are fighting against the tobacco industry’s influence on youth.”

“As young people, we are vulnerable, and tobacco industry marketing takes advantage of that. For example, stores popular among adolescents contain almost three times more tobacco marketing materials compared to other stores in the same community,” said Brea Fyfe, a Reality Check youth advocate from the Oneonta Community Christian School.

Jasmine Neill, another Cherry Valley Reality Check member added, “We’ve seen enough tobacco marketing. We need to make changes in our communities so that smoking is not the norm and we can build tobacco-free generations.”

Reality Check empowers youth to become leaders in their communities in exposing the influence of tobacco industry marketing on youth tobacco use. The organization’s members produce change in their communities through grassroots mobilization and education. Reality Check in Delaware, Otsego and Schoharie Counties is the youth action component of Advancing Tobacco Free Communities (ATFC-DOS). Ms. Regina Haig is the Reality Check/Youth Engagement Program Coordinator with ATFC-DOS.

ATFC-DOS educates the community and decision makers, mobilizes community members around problems that tobacco addiction causes in local communities, and helps decision makers understand the types of choices that they have to address these problems. Efforts are evidence-based, policy-driven and cost effective approaches that decrease youth tobacco use, motivate adult smokers to quit and eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke. For further information, individuals may contact 518-255-5364.
