The Best Gifts from Schoharie County

Ian Flanagan Performance at Blackdome on Saturday

Written By Editor on 2/25/21 | 2/25/21

Ian Flanigan captures the hearts of listeners and can make any song his own as he recently did on NBC’s The Voice making his way to the top 3 in December.  Hailing from Saugerties, New York, Ian is a singer-songwriter that tours nationally with his family from their Winnebago Motor Home.  He has regional fame as the popular winner of the Best of the Hudson Valley’s “Best Vocalist/Best Artist.” Flanigan’s music – an eclectic blend of progressive Country/Americana and percussive fingerstyle - has been featured internationally and celebrated on stages shared by Blake Shelton, John Fogerty, Grace Potter, Tedeschi Trucks, Corey Glover, Chris Knight, and Dwight Yoakam.

This Saturday night’s performance was recorded in a small chapel situated on the grounds of the Beneath the Oaks Winery in Midfield, Texas.  We are grateful for Ian's participation in our first series of online concerts, and it is a perfect close to this winter’s events.  Join us this Saturday at 8pm to view Ian’s performance.  You won’t want to miss this one!

This performance will be streamed from our website - see viewing link below.

THE STORY OF WANGARI MAATHAI
Nancy Payne at the Gilboa Historical Society


Storyteller NANCY PAYNE tells of a woman breaking through the Kenyan expectation of a lifetime working in the fields. Wangari Maathai started in those fields, but got sidetracked through primary and advanced education, organizating Kenyan women in the fields, and became a model to redefine the very meaning of peace for the Nobel Peace Prize committee. Wangari Maathai combined social commitment, science, and activism to win 2004's Nobel Peace Prize.

C-GCC Receives $258k Grant

Written By Editor on 2/23/21 | 2/23/21

HUDSON – Columbia-Greene Community College is one of seven community colleges in the nation selected by Achieving the Dream (ATD) to participate in a new grant initiative, Building Resiliency in Rural Communities for the Future of Work.


The three-year grant, valued at $258,000, is among the largest private grants ever received by the College, and is made possible by funding from the Ascendium Education Group, Cognizant U.S. Foundation, JPMorgan Chase & Co., The Community Focus Fund at the Chicago Community Foundation, and Walmart.org.


C-GCC President Carlee R. Drummer, Ph.D., said C-GCC could not be more proud of becoming a part of the Achieving the Dream network.


"This partnership will enable the College to build on its momentum of strengthening and enhancing academic and personal supports, as well as narrowing equity gaps so that increased numbers of students will be able to find jobs that pay family-sustaining wages,” she said.


Achieving the Dream President and CEO Karen A. Stout, Ph.D., added “rural community colleges have long served as drivers of their communities’ economic and civic vitality, playing a critical role in ensuring social and economic mobility.


"As Achieving the Dream works to support our colleges in fostering diverse and equitable campuses, we are mindful of the importance of building a network that reflects the diversity of institutions across our country," Stout continued. "Building Resiliency in Rural Communities for the Future of Work adds to ATD’s experience collaborating with other rural colleges in our network as well as the nation’s tribal colleges and universities, offering new learning opportunities around the role of rural community colleges as workforce and economic development engines.”


C-GCC is the eighth State University of New York (SUNY) institution to become part of the ATD Network. Other members include SUNY Broome, Dutchess, Mohawk Valley, Onondaga, SUNY Schenectady, Suffolk County, and Westchester Community Colleges.


Founded in 2004, ATD leads a growing network of more than 300 community colleges in 45 states and the District of Columbia committed to helping students, particularly low-income students and students of color, achieve their goals for academic success, personal growth, and economic opportunity. The other colleges joining the ATD network and this initial cohort include:

Thomas Cole Museum Earns Two National Grants

Thomas Cole National Historic Site Awarded Two Prestigious Federal Grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowments for the Arts 
 

The National Awards Will Support the Site’s New Digital Education Initiative using American Art to Teach American History and its World-Class Special Exhibition in 2022 with a Guest Curator from the National Gallery of Art 

 

Catskill, NY – February 22 – The Thomas Cole National Historic Site announced today that it has been awarded two federal grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the National Endowments for the Arts (NEA). The highly competitive national awards support two new projects developed by the Thomas Cole National Historic Site that build on the organization’s history of programmatic excellence. The Thomas Cole Historic Site is located in Catskill, New York, and serves as both an international cultural destination and community cornerstone. The organization would like to recognize Senate Majority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer for his support of its work and these two projects in particular. 

 

The NEH awarded a “Digital Projects for the Public: Discovery Grant” in the amount of $30,000 for the initial phase of the project titled “A New Digital Game Engaging Students with American History through American Art.” The project will address an urgent need to support students in grades 4 to 8 in developing an understanding of the history of the United States from multiple viewpoints so they may better understand current events and the choices that impact our future. As part of the NEH’s “A More Perfect Union” initiative, the digital game will use art as an entry point for young learners to explore the history of the United States, specifically between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, when the artist Thomas Cole (1801-1848) was active. Additional support for the project is provided by The Jack Warner Foundation.  

 

The NEA awarded a “Grants for Arts Projects” in the Museums discipline in the amount of $35,000 to support a new exhibition and publication entitled “Thomas Cole’s Studio: Memory and Inspiration” that is now scheduled for 2022 at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site. The project will explore the final phase of the artist Thomas Cole’s career by reassembling the major works of art that were in Cole's studio at the time of his death in 1848 and the important influence that the studio - which was preserved intact after his death by his family - had on the many American artists who visited to learn as much as possible about the late master. The exhibition is curated by Franklin Kelly, the Christiane Ellis Valone Curator of American Paintings at the National Gallery of Art, assisted by Annette Blaugrund, Consulting Curator and Former director of the National Academy Museum and School of Fine Art, NYC, and Kate Menconeri, the Thomas Cole Site’s Curator and Director of Collections & Exhibitions. The exhibition catalogue will be published by Hirmer Publishers, Munich. The project will be presented in the Thomas Cole’s Site’s reconstructed 1846 New Studio building in conjunction with a site-specific artist installation by Marc Swanson in the adjacent historic Main House created in conversation with Swanson’s solo exhibition at MASS MoCA. Swanson’s installation at the Thomas Cole Site will explore similar themes of memorial and loss.  

 

"The National Endowment for the Humanities is pleased to be able to support the innovative use of technology to engage young learners with U.S. history through important works of art," said NEH Acting Chairman Adam Wolfson.  

 

“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support this project from the Thomas Cole National Historic Site,” said Arts Endowment Acting Chairman Ann Eilers. “The Thomas Cole National Historic Site is among the arts organizations across the country that have demonstrated creativity, excellence, and resilience during this very challenging year.” 

 

“The Thomas Cole National Historic Site is one of the Catskill’s hidden treasures, preserving and uncovering long lost wall paintings by the great American landscape artist and sharing them with the world,” said Senator Schumer. “Today’s federal funding will make the site more accessible to all ages and shed new light on the final works of Thomas Cole’s life. I am proud to deliver this funding that will enrich the lives of not only New Yorkers, but also of all Americans, who can soon discover the gem that is Thomas Cole’s legacy for themselves.” 

 

“We are so grateful to have the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts behind us as we move forward with these important projects that aim to address some of the most pressing educational and societal needs of our time,” said Betsy Jacks, Executive Director of the Thomas Cole National Historic Site. “I’d also like to thank Senator Schumer for encouraging us every step of the way and for recognizing the educational and economic value of arts organizations in New York communities.”

Rep. Delgado Meets with Local Leaders

BROOME AND DELAWARE COUNTIES, NY – Today, U.S. Representative Antonio Delgado (NY-19) met with elected officials from the Village of Deposit, Town of Sanford, Town of Roxbury, Town of Bovina, and Delaware County to discuss direct federal COVID-19 relief. Last week, House of Representative Committees released their COVID-19 relief package framework. The package includes an estimated total of more than $400 million in direct federal funding to counties, towns, and villages across New York's 19th Congressional District. Rep. Antonio Delgado worked with his colleagues to incorporate this funding formula in the latest House COVID-19 package.

“Local governments need direct COVID-19 relief to continue essential services and get shots in residents' arms,” said Rep. Antonio Delgado. “Since last May, I've been working to secure federal dollars for our rural communities. My funding formula, which is included in the latest House relief proposal, would deliver over $400 million to counties, towns, and villages across NY-19. Today's meetings made it clear -- folks need direct federal funding immediately.”

“Congressman Delgado is a great asset to the rural areas in his district,” said Village of Deposit Mayor Bryan Moore. “I am a Republican and support Mr. Delgado as I truly believe he is bipartisan and party affiliation means nothing. At the end of the day we need to put politics aside and work together. Congressman Delgado understands just how important this is to get some real work done and provide aid to the American people.”

“The little guys, smaller municipalities and rural communities, have been forgotten during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Town of Sanford Supervisor Dewey Decker. “I appreciate Congressman Delgado's work to support Towns like Sanford during this crisis. He listened to our concerns, and I know he will continue to fight for us in Washington.”

“Delaware County needs direct federal COVID-19 relief,” said Board of Supervisors Chair and Town of Bovina Supervisor Tina Molé. “We are doing everything we can on the ground to protect residents and continue essential services, but we need assistance from Congress. Representative Delgado has been fighting for months to get our community funding, and I thank him for his work to secure this critical aid.”

Suspect Arrested in Davenport Deceased Dogs Case

After numerous tips from the public and a subsequent investigation, New York State Police arrested a person wanted for leaving dead dogs on a property in Davenport. 

On February 11, 2021 New York State Police arrested Carlos G. Smith, age 33 of Utica, NY for six counts of the Agriculture and Markets Law Failure to Provide Proper Sustenance, a class A misdemeanor. 

On December 10, 2020 troopers were dispatched by Delaware County 911 to Smith’s residence on Pine Cliff Circle in the town of Davenport for a complaint of dead dogs.  Troopers located two adult dogs and four puppies left inside a crate outside of the trailer.  An investigation led troopers to believe that Smith left the area. 

Troopers applied for an arrest warrant and were granted one by the town of Davenport court in January.  A “Warrant Wednesday” post on Facebook this month looking for Smith led to numerous tips.  Smith was ultimately located and arrested in the city of Utica on February 11.  Smith was and transported back to Otsego County for processing and a virtual arraignment.  Smith was released on appearance tickets returnable to the town of Davenport court on February 23, 2021.
