  • Woodstock Founder Responds To New Bethel Woods Event With Promise Of “Real Woodstock 50th Festival”

    first_imgEarlier this week, Live Nation and Bethel Woods Center for the Arts announced plans for a three-day event that will be held at the same time and location where the original Woodstock Music & Arts Festival, from August 16th-18th in 2019. The official event is being branded as Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, with the tagline reading, “celebrating the golden anniversary at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival” and will plan on featuring live music, TED-style talks, and special exhibits.However, this Woodstock 50th anniversary celebration is not being organized by the promoters behind the original event. And there is, in fact, a second event being planned by local resident and co-founder of the original Woodstock, Michael Lang.In response to the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival announcement, Lang and his team provided a statement about his “official anniversary” that will not take place at Bethel Woods.“While the original site in Bethel remains close to our hearts, it no longer has the capacity to hold a real Woodstock Festival. I’m delighted that Bethel Woods is doing events in the coming year to celebrate what we brought to life in 1969 and I encourage people to visit the museum and concert venue.”Some 400,000 music fans and adventurous souls were estimated to have attended the original Woodstock, which was famously underprepared for the masses with a lack of water and food. Still, even with rain-drenched grounds and organizers being unprepared for the peaceful gathering that would assemble on the farmland in upstate New York, the event remains as a pivotal moment in music and cultural history in American entertainment.In the next few weeks, Lang’s team promises that they will be announcing his plans for the “real Woodstock 50th Festival to bring back the much needed spirit and energy of the 1969 original.”It seems as though Lang’s intentions are to bring back what was started in 1969 by honoring its roots, though nothing is official regarding lineup yet. Artists including Joan Baez; Santana; members of The Who and Grateful Dead; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Ten Years After; And Country Joe McDonald are just a few of the surviving performers who were at the 1969 event who could possibly return to perform again this summer.Stay tuned to the Woodstock website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for official information.last_img read more

  • Guido Goldman dies at age 83

    first_imgGuido Goldman’s began his service to Harvard by pulling in one of the biggest political names of his time. As a graduate student, the Zurich-born Goldman worked with Henry Kissinger ’50, A.M. ’51, Ph.D. ’54, to establish the German Research Center. From then until 1994, Goldman and Professor Stanley Hoffman helmed the center as its founding director, steering it as it became the Program on Western Studies, the Center for European Studies (CES), and finally the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies — this at the same time he taught as a senior lecturer in government and, later, the center’s director of the Program for the Study of Germany.Goldman died Nov. 30 at age 83. He left behind an indelible mark on Harvard and the field of European studies, having forged enduring partnerships between Germany and the U.S. that continue to foster trans-Atlantic interchange and understanding.A man with a brilliant mind, modest manner, and great conviviality, Goldman was born on Nov. 4, 1937, the son of a German mother, Alice Gottschalk, and Nahum Goldmann, co-founder of the World Jewish Congress and president of the World Zionist Organization. The family fled to the U.S. in 1940. Goldman entered Harvard College and joined Winthrop House, graduating summa cum laude in 1959 and earning a doctorate in government in 1969 with a prize-winning dissertation on “Heavy Industry and Foreign Policy in the Weimar Republic.”Goldman’s contributions to public life in the United States were prodigious. As a young man, he was the primary force behind establishing the German Marshall Fund (GMF), an institution dedicated to improving trans-Atlantic understanding. It was Goldman’s initiative that led German Chancellor Willy Brandt to announce a major foundational gift to the GMF and a significant endowment for CES at Harvard’s Commencement on June 5, 1972, the 25th anniversary of the Marshall Plan. Guido served the GMF for 40 years as the founding chair of its board, a period during which he was also an important contributor to German-American relations and a board member of the American Council on Germany, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Atlantic Council of the United States. In 1978, he was awarded the Commander’s Cross of the Order of Merit by the Federal Republic of Germany for his “contributions towards fostering German-American relations.”Goldman also made many contributions to Harvard. Over four decades he helped raise more than $75 million for the University, including multiple endowments for European studies. In 1967, he helped establish the prestigious John F. Kennedy Memorial Fellowships and served as the program’s first director. In 1974, he secured a major gift from the Krupp Foundation for an endowed professorship in European studies, the first at Harvard to incorporate funding for graduate fellowships. In 1986, when Harvard was reconsidering usage of Adolphus Busch Hall, Goldman stewarded a generous donation from the de Gunzburg family to renovate the building as the new home for CES and establish an endowment for it. In 1990, Goldman helped negotiate an agreement through which the German government established three Centers of Excellence for German and European Studies at Harvard University, Georgetown University, and University of California, Berkeley. He was also instrumental in raising funds for the McCloy Program at Harvard Kennedy School and for the construction of Otto Werner Hall, an addition to the Fogg Museum that housed Harvard’s collection of expressionist art.In May 2018, Harvard awarded Goldman the Centennial Medal, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences’ highest honor, for his “lifelong commitment to promoting international peace and prosperity” and “decades of impeccable leadership of the Center for European Studies and service” to his alma mater.Goldman was also a major supporter of the arts, serving for many years on the board and as vice chair of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and helping organize the Dance2Bfit program to fight obesity in primary schools. As the founder of the American Foundation for Textile Art, he assembled and curated the world’s finest collection of Central Asian Ikat art, for which he was elected to the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan in 1998.  After sponsoring many exhibitions of these textiles in twelve American and European museums, in 2005 he donated the bulk of his collection to the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington, D.C. The catalog of his Ikat collection was given the George Wittenborn Memorial Award in 1997.A memorial service to celebrate Goldman’s life and work will be planned as soon as it is possible to convene in person.last_img read more

  • Best Trail Contest Winner!

    first_imgIt’s like choosing your favorite child. Inconceivable. With so many amazing trail systems in the Southern Appalachians, is it even possible to pick one trail that’s better than all the rest?BRO recently challenged our readers to do just that and name the Single Best Trail in the Southeast, and after wading through numerous entries we’ve come to a conclusion.The winner of our Best Trail Contest is Jon Livengood, who offers a vivid and detailed description of the Honey Creek Loop in Tennessee’s Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. Opinions were (literally) all over the map, but Honey Creek seems to have a little something for everyone. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s Jon’s take on his favorite footpath…My favorite trail is the Honey Creek Loop in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area near Rugby, Tennessee. This trail has the biggest variety of conditions per mile that I’ve every seen. It doesn’t have the longest climb, or highest peak, but it makes up for that by having almost every kind of terrain packed into six miles you could ever want. It’s a slow moving six miles, due to the amazing natural obstacles and beautiful distractions along the way—rock scrambles and squeezes (must remove backpacks on some of them), big views, canyon hiking, Indian rock houses, waterfalls (one in a cave), wooded sections, steep ladder climbs, and open rock faces. It also connects with the John Muir Trail to allow you to expand your mileage and do a longer weekend hike.The trail starts among pristine wooded forests along, beautiful cascading creeks, and winds around many unique trees. It then passes by huge rock walls with amazing embedded formations. Portions remind me of coral. Next, it gives you the option to climb up a couple of ladders to get an incredible view of the Big South Fork Cumberland River and the gorge it has carved out. You then descend from the overlook to get up and personal with the river with options to set up camp or take a swim. The trail changes again, as now you start hiking thru 50-feet wide canyons and crawling thru tight crevasses in the rocks. Hikers should expect to get wet, as the trail and the creek cross at times. You can take a short ladder to a huge Indian rock house that over looks the trail. It has a second room that requires you to get down on your stomach and crawl through a small opening to gain access. Back on the trail, you pass through a few more tight squeezes and a rock tunnel that has a waterfall in it. Finally, you climb up the hill to a flat slab of rock—maybe 50 feet long by 100 feet wide—a fantastic place to absorb some sun and have a bite to eat. Finish out the trail by walking along the rim of the gorge and pass above and then below Honey Creek Falls. It’s hard to do Honey Creek justice with words, but it is a trail I hope everyone in the Southern Appalachians has a chance to experience.——————–Runners UpBartram Trail from Nantahala River to Cheoah BaldThe North Carolina trail starts at mouth of Ledbetter Creek and goes four miles to the top of Cheoah Bald following Ledbetter’s cascades most of the way. You gain close to a 1,000 feet in the first mile and have to give one last good effort along the Appalachian Trail to the bald. There are great views in both the north and south directions from the peak. From the top you can see Wesser Bald, Wayah Bald, Blood Mountain, and most of the mountain peaks in Georgia. Northern views include Lake Santeetlag, Snowbird Mountains, Clingman’s Dome, Lake Fontana, and the Stecoah Valley.-Reeve McNamaraApple Orchards FallsThis seven-mile loop trail with multiple waterfalls starts near Arcadia, Va.– Tim MosesBays Mountain ParkBays Mountain Park, Kingsport, TennesseeThe combination of the Indian Pipes, Kiner Hollow, Laurel Run, and Lakeside Trails in the park includes a 3,440-acre nature preserve, a 44 acre-lake, steep ridges, gorges, waterfalls, creeks, and opportunities to see wildlife.– Mark SkeltonSlickrock Creek Trail (Cheoah Dam to Lower Falls)The Slickrock Creek Trail in North Carolina’s Slickrock Wilderness is a 13.3-mile trail filled with stream fords, cascades, waterfalls, swimming holes, and much more. However, you don’t have to hike the entire trail to enjoy all this. From Cheoah Dam (famously seen in the film “The Fugitive”), you can hike just 3.1 miles to enjoy all the aforementioned scenes. Within the first mile and a half a few of the scarce yellowwood trees can be seen to the observant viewer. After hiking a sketchy portioned of the trail washed out by a mud slide several years back, the trail turns sharply following the creek. The trail then becomes adventurous as you hop boulders and large rocks along the river. After a little more than 2.5 miles you reach the first ford of the creek and our now in Tennessee. Be careful of the “slick rocks.” Heavy rains could make this creek impassible so use caution. Just 3/10 of a mile after the crossing you come to the spectacular Lower Falls. The large pool below the falls makes for a nice swimming area. This hike will be thoroughly enjoyed on the warmest of summer days. Turn around and head back after a swim, or hike just 7/10ths of a mile to the Ike Branch Trail for a loop back towards Slickrock Creek. Adding the Ike Branch loop will give you an additional two miles.-Jerry Spanlast_img read more

  • House Judiciary Committee takes up UPL

    first_imgHouse Judiciary Committee takes up UPL House Judiciary Committee takes up UPL Senior EditorThe hot topic at the first meeting of the Florida House Judiciary Committee was the unlicensed practice of law, and specifically, how The Florida Bar and the legislature could work together to better protect Florida residents.Ostensibly, the January 8 gathering was the organizational meeting for the committee for its next two years of operations. That included a presentation from State Courts Administrator Rob Lubitz on the structure of Florida’s courts, an address from Bar President Tod Aronovitz, and Chair Rep. Jeff Kottkamp’s outlining of issues likely to be considered by the committee.But following Aronovitz’ talk, several committee members peppered him with questions about UPL, particularly on immigration and bankruptcy issues.] Rep. Gustavo A. Barreiro, R-Miami, started the UPL conversation when he noted that operations have set up in South Florida offering immigration and bankruptcy services, which are governed by federal rules and laws.“A lot of these offices have sprung up,” he said. “People pay two to four times more money than going to (attorneys) and they think they’re getting an attorney. What can we do as a legislature so we put in place parameters for that kind of abuse?”“We are the ones who receive daily the complaints from someone who has gone to someone they think is a lawyer and pays thousands of dollars and they get no legal services,” Aronovitz replied. He said the Bar files cases with the Supreme Court to “protect Floridians who can be hurt by those who hold themselves out as professionals and really aren’t.”Rep. Philip Brutus, D-Miami, asked if the Bar could help draft laws that criminalize some UPL activities. Rep. Juan-Carlos Planas, R-Miami, said he was concerned that lawyers licensed in other states can come to Florida and practice immigration and other federally regulated areas without joining The Florida Bar. Those lawyers frequently have been disciplined or had other problems in those other states, but still can come to Florida and offer services without any oversight, he said.“We have no controls over what other states do,” Aronovitz replied. “All we can do is work closely with you. If there is legislation on this subject, we will assist you where we can. We have the legal support staff and protecting the public is important to us.”Committee Chair Rep. Jeff Kottkamp, R-Cape Coral, said the issue is complicated because it’s the federal government that has jurisdiction over immigration and bankruptcy law. “We will have to work with Congress if we want to regulate immigration attorneys,” he said. “But unless someone complains to the Bar, no one is going to know about it. We will look at it and see what passes constitutional muster.”Rep. Carl Domino, R-Palm Beach Gardens, raised a different issue, asking Aronovitz why, in the business scandals surrounding Enron, WorldCom, and other corporate wrongdoing, accounting problems were highlighted, while attorneys who approved many of the questionable deals were not spotlighted.Aronovitz replied that Florida has very high standards and strict rules and would prosecute such misdeeds. “We are the gold standard of bar associations in the country. We do have in place an outstanding process,” he said.Kottkamp added that each state has its own attorney regulations and “had those actions been performed by an attorney in the state of Florida, I can assure you they would lose their license. Those attorneys were in other states.”In his presentation to the committee, Aronovitz said the Bar would be pursuing three general goals at the legislature this year.One is that the regulation of judges and lawyers remain under the Supreme Court. “That’s historic and we support it,” he said. “Ninety-nine percent of all lawyers historically follow our high ethical standards and our oath of professionalism. For those one percent who don’t, they are prosecuted vigorously.”That included in 2001 the disbarring of noted attorney F. Lee Bailey following a complaint by a federal judge. “We are proud at The Florida Bar of our lawyer regulation and our discipline,” Aronovitz said.The second area is adequate funding of the courts, especially with the legislature scheduled to take over more funding of the trial courts from counties by July 1, 2004. That’s important to business, the criminal justice system, and other parts of society, he said.The last will be to continue funding of the Civil Legal Justice Act that the legislature, at the urging of the Bar and others, began last year. “That has been a tremendous success,” Aronovitz said. “We commend you, and we are going to come and ask for a continuation of that.”The Bar president talked about the ongoing Dignity in Law program, which promotes the many positive things lawyers do to help clients every day, from pro bono to routine legal work on a variety of needs.“Some people don’t know that The Florida Bar is not a trade organization of attorneys,” Aronovitz said. “We are a unified Bar and that includes the real estate attorneys, probate, tax law, family law — it’s the whole umbrella of attorneys. But we function primarily for the benefit of the citizens of the state of Florida.. . . “We as the lawyers of Florida, pursuant to Article V of the constitution, act as the arm of the Florida Supreme Court to discipline and regulate attorneys; that is our function. We are very mindful of our role at The Florida Bar in recognizing and protecting the public trust.”Lubitz provided an overview of the court operations and its caseloads.“Our chief justice [Harry Lee Anstead] often talks about the importance of the rule of law and how important the courts are,” he said. “We see our role in the courts system as protecting democracy by upholding the law, protecting individual liberties, enforcing public order, and providing peaceful resolution of disputes.”Florida’s courts handle more than one million criminal cases each year, around 1.2 million civil cases, and around 500,000 juvenile and family type cases.The majority of that work falls on the trial courts, where 280 county judges handle around two million cases and 527 circuit judges preside over 800,000 cases, Lubitz reported. Sixty-two district courts of appeal judges handle 23,000 cases annually, he added, while the seven Supreme Court justices preside over 2,800 writs, appeals, and orders.The courts have seen a constant, if not overwhelming, growth in filings, with cases rising overall 12 percent in the past seven years, Lubitz said. That includes 10 percent increases in circuit criminal and family filings, but a 30-percent increase in circuit civil cases. At the county level, criminal filings are up 5.5 percent, while civil cases are up 35 percent.Florida judges typically handle 31 percent more cases that other judges nationally, and while the national average is 3.5 judges per 100,000 population, Florida has 3.1 per 100,000, Lubitz said.The total court budget is $292 million, he added, of which 77 percent goes to the trial courts, and 15 percent goes to the appellate courts. Administration accounts for about six percent and the rest is for other programs.For the upcoming session, Lubitz said the court system will have three priorities:• Passage of the annual certification for new judges. That opinion should be out early in February, Lubitz said. Last year, the court asked for 34 new circuit judgeships, 13 county judgeships, and two new DCA seats. The legislature wound up approving 18 new circuit judge posts.• Renewing the $2.50 charge on each civil filing that goes to support the court education trust fund. Lubitz said that levy supports one of the country’s best judicial education programs and gives Florida judges the background and training to operate efficiently. The assessment is scheduled to expire later this year.• Working with the legislature on the constitutionally mandated transition that will have the state picking up more trial court costs from the county. That must be done, by under a 1998 constitutional amendment, by July 1, 2004. “We are hopeful that in this session some of the structural decisions will be made,” Lubitz said. “What will be the county requirements, the local obligation? There’s an awful lot of uncertainty. We would like to have some of these broad policy decisions made during this year.”Some chief circuit judges, he added, are already dealing with budgets that will extend past July 1, 2004.In his opening remarks to the committee, Chair Kottkamp said he anticipates some major issues will come before the committee. Those include proposed changes to medical malpractice laws, a glitch bill on last year’s adoption rewrite, the judicial certification bill, and likely rewriting workers’ compensation laws.“There’s going to be a lot of reading, but it’s going to be very interesting,” Kottkamp said.
