Bushel Hosts Film Screening and Cooking Demo to Highlight Native American Foodways, Nov 14

Written By Editor on 10/31/22 | 10/31/22

DELHI — On Monday, November 14, 5:30 pm, Bushel hosts the First Nations Development Institute (FDNI) for a special event: a screening of the film Gather (2020), a documentary about Native American food sovereignty. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director Sanjay Rawal and FDNI’s director of programs A-dae Romero Briones and development officers Jona Charette and Marisa Page. The event culminates with a cooking demo by Emma Shenandoah of the Wolf Clan of the Mohawk Nation (Akwesasne, NY) and a tasting for attendees. 

Tickets are $30 for this limited-seating event (sliding scale available). Email Bushel at to reserve your seats or go directly to the Eventbrite page: Bushel is located at 106 Main Street, Delhi, ground floor.

Gather (directed by Sanjay Rawal, 2020) is an intimate portrait of the growing movement amongst Native Americans to reclaim their spiritual, political, and cultural identities through food sovereignty, while battling the trauma of centuries of genocide. The film follows Nephi Craig, a chef from the White Mountain Apache Nation (Arizona), opening an indigenous cafĂ© as a nutritional recovery clinic; Elsie Dubray, a young scientist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Nation (South Dakota), conducting landmark studies on bison; and the Ancestral Guard, a group of environmental activists from the Yurok Nation (Northern California), trying to save the Klamath river. Gather was awarded Best Documentary Feature at the Red Nation Film Festival Awards and named a Critic’s Pick by the New York Times, both in 2020; in 2022 Gather won a James Beard Foundation Media Award for Best Documentary.

Gather’s director Sanjay Rawal will be present at the event. He is an Indian-American documentary film director with three feature-length films to his credit: Food Chains (2014), 3100: Run and Become (2018), and Gather (2020). Prior to filmmaking, Rawal spent 15 years working on grassroots peace-building campaigns and ran international development initiatives led by notable artists and philanthropists. Rawal has won two James Beard awards and received support from the Ford Foundation, NoVo, Schmidt Family Foundation, and others.

Also present at the event will be three principals of the First Nations Development Institute: A-dae Romero-Briones (Cochiti/Kiowa), Jona Charette (N. Cheyenne/Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa), and Marisa Page (Pawnee/Ponca/Comanche).

Special guest from the region will be Emma Shenandoah (Wolf Clan of the Mohawk Nation), a chef residing in Akwesasne, New York. She will present a cooking demonstration, participate in the Q&A, and offer a tasting to attendees.

DEC Announces Leftover Deer Management Permits Available Nov. 1

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos announced that remaining Deer Management Permits (DMPs) in several Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) will be available to hunters beginning Nov.1. Applications for leftover DMPs will be accepted for the following WMUs: 1C, 3M, 3R, 3S (bowhunting-only), 4J (bowhunting-only), 7F, 7H, 7J, 7R, 8A, 8C (bowhunting-only), 8F, 8G, 8H, 8J, 8N, 8R, 9A, 9F, and 9G.

"In units with leftover Deer Management Permits, hunters can pick up another two tags to help meet New York State's management objectives," said Commissioner Seggos. "In these areas, DEC encourages hunters to hunt safely and responsibly and to prioritize doe harvest and share extra venison with friends, neighbors, and venison donation programs."

DMPs, which allow hunters to harvest antlerless deer, are issued for specific WMUs to control deer populations. In some WMUs, the DMP target has not been reached even after all applicants received permits during the initial application process. In these units, DEC will re-open the DMP application process on a first-come, first-served basis. Hunters may apply for up to two additional DMPs in these WMUs at any DEC license sales outlet beginning Tuesday, Nov. 1.

Leftover DMPs are not available by phone, mail, or internet. Applications must be made at license issuing outlets. Applicants who previously paid the $10 DMP application fee during the initial application period, or are exempt from the application fee, will not be charged for this additional application. Hunters who did not previously apply for a deer management permit are required to pay the $10 application fee.

During this extended application period, DEC will issue DMPs for an individual WMU until the target issuance quota is achieved. The status of permits will be reviewed each night, and as individual units are filled, they will be removed from the list of those available effective the following day. A list of units with available leftover DMPs will routinely be updated on DEC's website or via the DMP Hotline at 1-866-472-4332

The exhibition, Randy Johnson: Storytelling with Photographs, marks the Hall of Fame pitcher’s first-ever solo exhibition.


Fenimore Art Museum will host the exhibition, just one mile from The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York.




Randy Johnson: Storytelling with Photographs
April 1 – September 17, 2023

Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, NY


COOPERSTOWN, NY – Hall of Fame pitcher, Randy Johnson, shares his forty-year passion for photography in his first-ever solo exhibition at Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York, on view April 1 – September 17, 2023. Randy Johnson: Storytelling with Photographs features an array of images captured by Johnson during his treks across Africa. The work includes intimate shots of the people he engaged with and the abundance of wildlife he encountered. Johnson’s accompanying written account partners with the vibrant imagery, weaving together a visually appealing grand tour of the continent.


“I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel the world and capture rare moments,” said Johnson. “All of my photos tell a story, but none of these are more meaningful than the ones I was able to collect during my time in Africa. The images reflect my experiences with the people and wildlife there.”


Randy Johnson: Storytelling with Photographs is the culmination of four visits to separate regions of the continent, with the goal of creating a visual document. The exhibition features sections on Ethiopia and its people, Rwanda and its silverback gorilla population, the great herd migrations of Eastern Africa, and portraits of various animals photographed in the wild. A total of 30 large prints will be on view.


Johnson’s career as a Major League pitcher is well documented, but his passion for photography is not as widely known. It began when he studied photojournalism at the University of Southern California from 1983-1985. Following his retirement from baseball in 2010, the five-time Cy Young Award winner was able to revive earlier aspirations and devote his full attention to the craft.


“Baseball was my livelihood, and it’s still a great interest to me, but it opened a lot of doors to my passion. Baseball was my life, essentially, from the age of seven until I retired at age 46. But then I was able to step away from it for a while and get back to photography.”


Johnson has frequently been spotted around the country photographing rock concerts and occasional sporting events. His work has been featured in publications such as Rolling Stone, Spin, and Metal Hammer. Johnson’s concert photography has even found its way into tour programs, posters, and books.


“Photography has taken me on an amazing journey, and it’s just the beginning,” Johnson added. “I look forward to visiting places I’ve never been, photographing things I’ve never seen, and sharing what I have learned along the way.”


Fenimore Art Museum will also feature a symposium on photography featuring Johnson and other respected photographers, plus programs specifically designed for children.


Fenimore Art Museum presents Randy Johnson: Storytelling with Photographs alongside its world-renowned collections of fine art, folk art, and Native American art, which includes The Thaw Collection of American Indian Art. Visit for a complete list of current and upcoming exhibitions. Fenimore Art Museum is located one mile from The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York.

“The Lion in Winter” Comes to Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre

Written By Editor on 10/26/22 | 10/26/22

November 10 – 20

“Well, what family doesn’t have its ups and downs?”

Merry Christmas, 1183! King Henry II has just released his estranged wife Eleanor from prison so that the entire back-stabbing royal family can spend the holiday together. He’s getting on in years and a succession plan needs to be mapped out. But which of their three sons will end up on the throne? The stakes are high, the knives are out, and it looks like this will be one Christmas where nobody is going to get what they want.

For the final play in its 2022 Fall Season, Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill, generally renowned for its productions of new and innovative works, has chosen a true American classic. James Goldman’s 1966 “The Lion in Winter” will be presented on the theatre’s intimate “Priscilla” Mainstage for a two-weekend run November 10-20, 2022.

A notorious flop in its initial 1966 Broadway production, the play’s reputation was subsequently rehabilitated due in large part to its Oscar-winning 1968 film adaptation which starred Katharine Hepburn and Peter O’Toole. “The Lion in Winter” has since gone on to be recognized as a masterpiece of its genre and become an audience favorite on stages around the world.

Featured in the cast of the Bridge Street Theatre production will be Leigh Strimbeck as Eleanor, Steven Patterson as Henry, Seth McNeill as Richard, Michael Raver as Geoffrey, Orlando Grant as John, Christopher Joel Onken as Philip, and Geneva Turner as Alais. Bridge Street Theatre’s Artistic Director John Sowle directs and designs, with costumes by Michelle Rogers. The production will also feature a score of original incidental music commissioned from Minneapolis-based composer N. Jennings White. Production Stage Manager is Kiara Vedovino.

“The Lion in Winter” will be performed Thursdays – Saturday evenings at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm from November 10 – 20 in the theatre’s 84-seat “Priscilla” Mainstage, located at 44 West Bridge Street in the Village of Catskill. Advanced tickets can be purchased online at Tickets can also be purchased at the door (subject to availability) 30-minutes prior to each performance.
