When Bill was my age, he hired a something smartass fresh out of University of Oklahoma and gave me my first full-time job as a reporter.
Through my three separate tenures at Gazette, Bill has been an important part of my professional life, and I cannot thank him enough for taking a chance on me, both as the rookie I was in and the editor-in-chief I am today. This is one of those rare positive stories about print journalism. It happens so often and to so many papers that its incidence starts to feel like the dull pain that no doctor can cure, so you just learn to hobble through the misery. He does not worship at the foot of powerful forces or cower when those forces attempt to blunt the truth.
If Gazette were to continue under new leadership, the best possible outcome was to have someone like Pete come into the picture. As readers, this impacts you in some important ways. These advances will add new dimensions to what Gazette will bring you — not just every week, but every day.
All of this comes at a time when the press is under attack — not just from economic forces, but from the highest reaches of power. At the state and municipal levels, government entities try to keep otherwise public meetings private or hold late-night votes to avoid the sunlight that can be the best disinfectant.
Gazette takes this as a challenge.

The coleslaw was swimming in mayonnaise.
There are few activities that make me happier than finding a good meal in an unexpected location. The business is currently co-run by co-owner Garland Lenoir, who has leased the space a few times over the years and uses it as an event center with karaoke on the weekends and everything from birthday parties to dance classes and reunions in the main portion of the building.
Lenoir said he leased the restaurant portion of the property over the last year, but the lessee left it vacant. My older sisters did, and now I do all of the cooking for the holidays.
The menu at the buffet is fairly straightforward classic comfort soul food. I arrived for my first trip to the buffet on a Monday around noon. You pull into the parking lot for the property, which looks like an old hotel, and enter the door on the right side of the building; the main entrance is not open during brunch service.
Enter the main dining room, where a server tells you to go ahead, grab a plate and pay after your meal. There are no artisan lettuces, just regular and nutrient-rich romaine, and no heirloom tomatoes or bitter seasonal greens—the kind that we tell ourselves is better for us as we choke it down. December 2,in Peekskill, New York Work composed: To a certain extent, the identification of Copland with the American sound is a chicken-and-egg conundrum.
Would his tones have sounded so American if they had not been attached to subjects that illuminated such a breadth of specifically American places: It builds no empires. It is a pastorale, a lyric joke ….
There are never more than a very few people on the stage at a time … one must be always conscious of the enormous land on which these people live and of their proud loneliness. Folk tunes or melodies that mimic them appear in quite a few Copland scores, but here they play a role almost constantly, drawn largely from the collections Our Singing Country by John A.
Its folksong-infused score was perfectly in sync with wartime nationalism, but it has stood the test of time without fading.
The following year Copland extracted an orchestral suite, which he titled Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo. Copland told his interviewer Vivian Perlis: Extended pauses further exaggerate the syncopation.
Aaron was teaching at Tanglewood, and he called when the score was ready and came over with a young friend. Not a soul but my mother and me! I got more and more excited and finally I was just screaming, yelling and dancing. The boy with Aaron kept pushing the music back in place.

Robert Rudie Last Performance: October 9,in Paris, France Died: Two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, three trumpets, three trombones, tuba, timpani, and strings Thanks to benefactions arranged by Axel Carpelan, a Finnish man-about-the-arts and the eventual dedicatee of this work, Jean Sibelius and his family were able to undertake a trip to Italy from February to April So it was that much of the Second Symphony was sketched in the Italian cities of Florence and, especially, Rapallo, where the composer rented a composing studio apart from the home in which his family was lodging.
Aspects of the piece had already begun to form in his mind almost two years earlier, although at that point Sibelius seems to have assumed that his sketches would end up in various separate compositions rather than in a single unified symphony.
Even in Rapallo, he was focused on writing a tone poem. He reported that on February 11,he entertained a fantasy that the villa in which his studio was located was the fanciful palace of Don Juan and that he himself was the amorous, amoral protagonist of that legend.
He jotted in his diary the thoughts that accosted him at midnight: I was sitting in the dark in my castle when a stranger entered. I asked who he could be again and again—but there was no answer.
I tried to make him laugh but he remained silent. At last the stranger began to sing—then Don Juan knew who it was. As his work evolved, he seems to have sacrificed the Don Juan idea in favor of another, very different concept: But once Sibelius returned to Finland that June, he began to recognize that what was forming out of his sketches was instead a full-fledged symphony—one that would end up exhibiting an extraordinary degree of unity among its sections.
With his goal now clarified, Sibelius worked assiduously through the summer and fall and reached a provisional completion of his symphony in November Then he had second thoughts, revised the piece profoundly, and definitively concluded the Second Symphony in January Nonetheless, this symphony does seem to express something specific to the Finnish imagination.
Bucolic sections are interrupted by passages that evoke grave concern, or even by terrible outbursts; and these, in turn, are confronted by suggestions of proud defiance and resolute confidence. Some listeners find it thick and claustrophobic, but Sibelius was very particular about its details and it adds up to his musical fingerprint.
Take his very typical use of the massed brass section, which often erupts in snarling crescendos in the second movement. A report survives of a rehearsal of the Second Symphony conducted by Robert Kajanus, at which only two of the three trumpeters were in attendance, the third having come down with the flu.
