Eric Peterson


Eric Peterson has been named the next president of the Hargrave Military Academy, the board has announced.

Peterson has decades of independent school experience, including 13 years as a principal at St. George’s School in Rhode Island. He currently serves as the acting athletic director at Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs and previously worked as a senior research consultant in the independent school market.

He taught English, history, government, and ethics, and coached football, baseball, and track and field. He has served as a dorm parent, assistant admissions director, admissions director, associate principal, and high school principal.

While at St. George’s, Peterson led a number of program and program innovations and oversaw the execution of a multi-year strategic plan, accreditation reviews and numerous capital projects. Additionally, at his insistence and direction, St. George’s launched a groundbreaking independent investigation into historic sexual misconduct at school. The investigation attracted attention and became a model for other schools’ efforts to address past misconduct issues.

The inquest concluded that the school’s efforts and Peterson’s management had created a “very different place” to where the abuse occurred in the 1970s and 80s, and praised Peterson and his management team for having created a “culture of respect”.

“We were drawn to Eric because he demonstrated not only a deep understanding of what it takes to accomplish our mission of educating boys in a spiritual environment and with the benefit of a strong athletic program , but also demonstrated an enthusiasm to share with donors and the wider community the opportunity to join us in this mission,” said Ben Davenport, Chairman of the Board of Hargrave.

“I am drawn to Hargrave’s distinctive and compelling mission, which includes his Christian principles and commitment to educating men of character,” Peterson said of the upcoming opportunity. “I recognize that boys thrive on structure and challenge, both of which are at the heart of military and athletic programs. I see great opportunity for the school as we work to build the future on Hargrave’s impressive history and traditions.

A graduate of Deerfield Academy, Peterson received his Bachelor of Arts in English, cum laude, from Dartmouth College and a Juris Doctor with honors from Northwestern University.

Peterson and his wife, Krista, are also co-founders of Orion Military Scholarships, a non-profit organization that provides boarding school scholarships for children of US military personnel. They have three adult sons.

Peterson is expected to start his service in June. Sloan Gibson will continue as interim president.

CANAAN – John Robshaw Textiles opened in October, bringing the colors and styles of Indian print artists to the block in Connecticut in a store that looks more like an art gallery.

For more than 20 years, Robshaw, a New York native who now has a home in Sharon, has traveled to India to work with local artists, creating home items with a distinctive Indian touch. The textile shop offers a wide variety of pillows, duvets, sheets and blankets, as well as bath textiles, furniture, artwork and even pajamas.

The textile boutique sells to retail and wholesale customers, and those looking for new designs and looks for their weekend or year-round homes continue to browse Robshaw’s collections at 5 US Route 7, Canaan. .

“We opened in 2021, towards the end of October,” Robshaw said from his New York studio. “We were waiting for the approval of the sign by the city and we finally got it last month. We’re not in the main shopping area in Falls Village so I think the signs help a lot.

The Robshaw Artist Collective includes sculptors for block-printed designs and other artisans who use traditional methods to design fabrics.

“We design everything here at the New York studio and send the artwork to Jaipur (a city in India). There, the block cutters and printers make our samples. We also get feedback from them when it comes to designs.

“I’ve been going there for a long time now so I pretty much know what they can do; it’s a collaboration in the sense that there are limits and we have to understand them together, ”said Robshaw. “It’s like a traditional factory relationship, but with a lot more interaction. “

Most of the artists he works with are in India, but also in nearby Thailand.

“I worked in different places for different projects,” he said. “India can do so much; they have so many great fabrics and processes.

How it started

After graduating in fine arts from Pratt and studying traditional block printing in China, Robshaw said he traveled to India to find natural indigo dye for his paintings. Instead, he fell in love with the fabric-making traditions of local artisans.

“On one of my first trips to India, I went to the famous National Institute of Design, to see what was going on with textiles,” he said. “I met a young block printer near the school and he let me play with the blocks and print. A light has come on; I thought, it’s amazing, all the things you can do. I was addicted. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it all, but it’s such an interesting job.

His attraction to the techniques and methods of artists for creating colors and patterns, he said, was due to the fact that they did everything by hand. Over the years, he has visited villages where artist families are well known for their work and learned how to make vegetation-dyed batik fabrics, sarongs and ikats, a method of dyeing yarns before they did. ‘they are not woven into fabric.

“I used to do everything by hand in art school, and in India they do everything by hand too. So there was that connection to that kind of work for me, ”said Robshaw.

He said he had also discovered that he could add his own “painter” touch to traditional methods by mixing patterns and layering them, in a more formal artistic way.

“These people were making things to sell, and that brought me into the real world, making vernacular art, that people can sleep under,” Robshaw said. “It’s much more rewarding for me than a painting on the wall. I like the idea of ​​use and function.

He forged links with families in India that last 20 years later.

“I still work with some of them to this day,” he said. “I see them several times a year.

Customers discover the store

The attraction to Indian prints and textiles appeals to customers for a number of reasons.

“The whole fabric selection process goes through an ethnic textile world, and it has hit America at different times, in different ways,” Robshaw said. “There’s the Palm Beach, Florida look, and there’s the hippie look… My parents wore a lot of prints in the 1970s and 1980s. Prints keep coming back and forth; people are bored with solids and they want to make a difference.

When speaking to customers at his Canaan store, he enjoys hearing their comments as they browse his bedding and home collections.

“They can have houses in different places, and maybe their daughter is going to boarding school in Kent, and they want to buy for their daughters’ dorm,” he said. “Pillows are like a fashion accessory and they are fun. You can make a change without committing to a big chunk; it’s not such a serious buy, and there are a million styles.

Sheets and pillows are popular with the hand-embroidered edges of the print fabric, in hues ranging from soft pinks and blues to crisp reds and whites.

“There are so many varieties,” Robshaw said.

The textile store is one of many new businesses that have moved to the Canaan / Falls Village area, he said, and he feels right at home there.

“I know Bunnie Williams at 100 Main Street; it opened a few years ago and was doing well, so I thought that would help, ”he said. “She was very nice, recommending people. And there are a lot of designers who have homes here, so it’s kind of a hub.

Buyers from Greenwich and Westport and other towns in Fairfield County are drawn to the area in search of designer “finds”.

“It’s interesting to see these people coming to shop here, so we thought that was a good fit for us,” said Robshaw.

For people with older homes in Litchfield County, Robshaw’s textile collections can refresh a room in no time, he said.

“The people of Fairfield County with a weekend home are looking for things to do with these spaces,” he said. “We’re only open three days a week, but we’re very busy. People come to buy and recommend us to their friends; and they come looking for more things to do.

Robshaw and his wife Rachel, an interior photographer, have a 2 year old daughter. He said the family divides their time between New York and Sharon.

“We still run a studio for the design company in New York. But it’s a great neighborhood here. I’m happy to spend more time in Connecticut, ”he said.

John Robshaw Textiles is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, and can be contacted by email at theshop@johnrobshaw.com. Or visit johnrobshaw.com/pages/the-shop

In America, we love a good Horatio Alger story, in which someone who starts out with very little applies hard work and ambition and becomes successful – but only in the abstract. In real life, America’s elites hate the try as much as any European aristocrat could.

In our national mythology, class doesn’t matter, but in practice our widely held belief in the myth of meritocracy reinforces inequality. Americans tend to overestimate the country’s economic mobility because Harvard University research showed, and they have great faith in fairness of their economic system, despite much evidence of racial and other prejudice. In some circles at least, coming from a modest background and wanting more is a moral deficiency, a form of greed.

The classism of this attitude is not always obvious as there is a lot to legitimately criticize about the American culture of restlessness, in which overwork is valued and we are all supposed to uplift and grind. The Covid pandemic and rethink the work culture that he forced engendered a backlash and a multitude of reflections on the end of ambition and if careers really matter when people die and the planet is on fire.

But this is not a critique of the effort itself; it is a critique of a corporate culture that is still based on excessively long working hours, fierce competitiveness and exploitative working practices.

The real question, then, is what is worth striving for? There is a difference between working unnecessarily for a company and working hard because you like it, or because you care about what you are doing, or, more importantly, trying to get ahead economically. There is nothing wrong with wanting to do better than your parents. Making an effort – even an exaggerated effort like Mr. Strong’s – shouldn’t be embarrassing. We, the efforts, understand this because we have never been able to achieve great success without this effort.

The elites are often socialized by affecting “ease” and avoiding displays of effort. But it’s a mistake to see the disconnect in terms of personal style or etiquette. We fighters cannot behave as if things come easy, because pretending that they are doing so often requires resources that we lack. We are “unchill” because we have neither the time nor the money to assemble the chill accessories, or to perform it.

It should be noted that “Succession”, the show where Mr. Strong’s remarkable performance made him a star worthy of a New York profile, centers on one wrestler, Logan Roy, who grew up without wealth in Scotland and built a media empire. His children, on the other hand, inhabit a world of wealthy people who despise effort in the same way Mr. Strong’s classmates at Yale cited in The New Yorker seem to do.

Tony Ryan never wrote poetry verses, but he never failed to hear someone else read one in North Beach, the San Francisco neighborhood that brought the Beat Scene to life.

Ryan saved his words for the after-parties, where he recounted his experiences as a Berkeley radical, People’s Park protester, Communist Party member and veteran of the Venceremos First Brigade, who defied the embargo on Cuban trips to cut sugar cane for Fidel Castro in 1969.

This work was unpaid, and neither was his paid work as an online bookseller, working from his personal collection of thousands of volumes.

Most evenings, Ryan sat at the end of the bar at Specs’ Twelve Adler Museum Café, the famous meeting place in an alleyway on Columbus Avenue. If new customers came in, he would get up from his stool and walk around the photographs and artifacts hanging on the wall. He also picked up tables when there were a lot of people.

Ryan didn’t own the place or even work there, but he lived in an upstairs room in his later years. On December 21, he was found dead on his bed surrounded by books stacked up to the ceiling. The cause of death was heart disease, brought on by a lifetime of heavy smoking and regular alcohol consumption, his brother Ben Ryan said. He was 73 years old.

“Tony’s life was very social. He lived in cafes, bookstores and water points, ”his brother said. “He was an intellectual passionate about all progressive movements. He was steadfast in his principles and has been an activist his entire life. A deep, deep activist.

Although Ryan was a figure of North Beach, for most of his life he couldn’t afford to live there. He moved between cheap apartments in Berkeley and Oakland, but every day he traveled to town by BART, never having obtained a driver’s license or owned a car. He would walk up from Montgomery Street station and start what has been called “Tony’s Triangle” by Agneta Falk, widow of San Francisco poet laureate Jack Hirschman and close friend of Ryan’s. The specs didn’t open until late afternoon, so the triangle would start at Caffe Trieste and then Vesuvio Cafe.

“He walked from place to place, sometimes stopping to buy cigarettes in between,” Falk said. “I hope he went to eat somewhere too.” She couldn’t be sure because no one had ever seen Ryan eat along the way to the triangle’s final stop – Specs’s.

After a long night of intellectual discourse fueled by vodka and soda, with rum and brandy as a variety, he would somehow return to BART for the last train home. He made this journey until three years ago, when a fire destroyed the building where he lived. Ryan escaped with only his passport, filled with stamps for Havana, which he visited almost every year. He lost around 10,000 collectible books, brochures and posters from the 1960s.

“Everything he lived and worked for was gone,” said his brother, an artist and musician living in Santa Barbara. “He was devastated. “

After that loss, Ryan practically moved into Specs, taking a 10ft by 10ft single room with access to a downstairs kitchen that he never used, despite having an impressive collection of cookbooks on exotic kitchens there. ‘Latin America.

“Tony has always been interested in my life, and he was like that with everyone,” said Maralisa Simmons-Cook, who owns Specs’ with her mother, Elly Simmons.

“He was no poet, but he was one of the key players in preserving the spirit of North Beach. People come to places like Specs and Vesuvio to witness or soak up the art, politics and history of the city, and Tony was their guide.

Anthony Bourke Ryan was born on May 25, 1948 in Phoenix. His father, Bill Ryan, was a salesperson for Sears Roebuck who moved to Caracas, Venezuela, which had a profound impact on Tony, who was fluent in Spanish by the time the family returned to live in Fresno early on. from the 1950s.

From there, they moved to a ranch in Clovis, a farming and rodeo town where Tony was bullied in school because of his glasses and thin physique. This gave him great sympathy for the underclass and the underdog, a prospect that solidified when the family attended a speech by Martin Luther King in Fresno State in 1964.

“Tony got involved in social justice early on and made my mother take him to an NAACP meeting,” said his other brother, Jordan Ryan, a retired United Nations official.

Ryan attended three different high schools, including the Woodside Priory, a notoriously rigid boarding school run by Hungarian monks in the Portola Valley. He once hitchhiked to Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park to meet famous anti-war activist Ira Sandperl, who worked there.

Ryan returned to his dorm with an armful of Communist literature and began proselytizing, which was a major factor in getting him kicked out of the priory after less than a year, according to his brother Jordan. From there he was sent to live with an aunt in Cambridge, Mass. so he could attend the famous Cambridge Rindge and Latin School near Harvard Square.

By the time he graduated and returned to California to attend Sonoma State University, he was completely radicalized. He received his BA in Environmental Studies and completed it with a Diploma in Library Technology at City College San Francisco. He moved to Berkeley when he accepted a position as a clerk at Moe’s Books on Telegraph Avenue. He also hung around the information game tables set up in Sproul Plaza to recruit UC Berkeley undergraduates for the radical cause.

It was there that he met Steve Wasserman, then a teenager in Berkeley and now editor of Heyday, Berkeley’s nonprofit independent book publisher. Together, Ryan and Wasserman walked down Telegraph Avenue and attended the People’s Park Riots in the late 1960s.

“Tony was deeply political and also sensitive to the avant-garde stream of politicized poetry that swept through the Bay Area, forming an archipelago of progressivism and bohemianism,” said Wasserman. “Tony straddled the politician-hippie divide almost perfectly.”

Ryan built his book inventory by shopping among street vendors in Berkeley and San Francisco. If he saw something he liked, he would buy whatever the seller had. He never had a physical store, other than his apartment.

In November 1969, Ryan traveled to Cuba with about 200 idealistic Westerners who formed the Venceremos Brigade, traveling via Mexico to bypass the embargo.

From this first trip, Ryan promoted the Cuban revolution and became one of the main importers of Cuban literature. After the travel ban was lifted, Ryan began bringing Cuban poets to San Francisco. He was a grand champion of Nancy Morejón, whom he took to a reading at the Emerald Tablet on Fresno Street in 2014, with a reception afterwards at Specs’.

Ryan landed his only stable job in the late 1980s when he moved to Washington, DC to work at the Inter-American Development Bank, which works to reduce poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean. It lasted nearly a decade, said Jordan Ryan, before mingling in management and stepping down.

“It was Tony until the end,” Jordan said. “He was engaged, intense, relentless and principled. “

But not without humor. Among the things he liked to laugh at was himself. For his 70th birthday at Specs’, he asked his old friend Jessica Loos to roast it. He even volunteered to provide her with notes if she ran out of materials. She declined her offer, already having too much to do.

“Tony was more of a caricature of himself than anyone I have ever met,” said Loos, who has been on the scene for over 20 years. “It was a pain in the ass, but memorable.”

A memorial service was planned for Ryan’s birthday in May, which would be held at Specs. Survivors include brothers Jordan Ryan of Atlanta, Ben Ryan of Santa Barbara and sister Sally Ryan of Atlanta.

Certainly, we must realize the importance of tolerance and to live in harmony, side by side, so that there is no more conflict.

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Vice President Ma’ruf Amin urged law enforcement to legally treat 300 unidentified people, who attacked the As Sunnah Islamic boarding school in Bagek Nyaka, East Lombok district, West Nusa Tenggara ( NTB).

“If there is an incident, like this one in Lombok, I ask that a legal process be followed according to the regulations in force in Indonesia. Whatever the offenders, they must be dealt with,” Amin said on Wednesday. .

The Vice-President underlined the importance of tolerance and harmony between interfaith communities.

“Surely, we must realize the importance of tolerance and to live in harmony, side by side, so that there is no more conflict,” he said.

The boarding school was attacked in the wee hours of Sunday January 2 by some 300 unknown people, who damaged and set fire to several vehicles and a mosque under construction in the boarding school complex.

The spokesperson for West Nusa Tenggara Chief Police Commissioner Artanto noted that police had interviewed 17 people as witnesses to the incident.

“The witnesses interviewed are those who were at the scene of the crime when the incident occurred,” he noted.

Police also investigated a statement from Ustadz Mizan Qudsiah, a teacher at the boarding school, which allegedly triggered the attack.

In a short video, Qudsiah is said to have discredited the sacred tombs that exist on the island of Lombok.

Police will check whether the statement qualifies as hate speech.

The boarding school is currently guarded by security guards.

KANSAS CITY (AP) – A doctor who is charged with 11 counts of child sexual abuse is expected to stay in an Arkansas County jail for now because he has COVID-19, the office said. Missouri attorney general in a court document filed Thursday.

David Smock, from Stockton, Missouri was arrested on Tuesday in Harrison, Arkansas, and has been imprisoned there since.

His lawyers have requested that he be released on bail or on his own recognizance. They claim he has health problems, no previous criminal convictions, no history of mental health problems and “can afford to pay his bail.”

A bail hearing is scheduled for Monday in Cedar County Circuit Court.

Smock is the longtime physician of Agape Boarding School, a Christian school in Stockton. He faces charges in Cedar and Greene counties.

A Greene County judge ruled last week that when Smock was arrested he should be held without bail pending trial, saying it was reasonable to believe he would not appear on a summons and that he poses a danger to others.

Schmitt argued in his motion that Smock has a long record of sexual abuse of underage boys, dating back to 1988 and stretching from California and Arizona to Missouri.

SPRINGFIELD, Missouri (AP) – A Missouri A residential doctor accused of multiple child sex crimes has been taken into custody in Arkansas.

David Smock, 57, was arrested Tuesday night in Harrison, Arkansas, near the Missouri border. Authorities said they considered him a fugitive for several days.

However, Smock’s attorney said Wednesday his client was back in Missouri to surrender when he was arrested. He was visiting his son in Louisiana when he learned of the charges, lawyer Craig Heidemann said.

Smock began to feel bad upon his return to Missouri and tested positive for COVID-19 at the Arkansas jail, said Heidemann, who represented Smock on charges filed in Cedar County.

“Dr. Smock’s concern is that law enforcement has wrongly portrayed him as a fugitive when in fact he is a victim of COVID trying to come back to face these charges.”

Smock is the long-time doctor at Agape Boarding School, a Christian school that remains under surveillance after five other employees were charged in September with assaulting students, for a total of 13 counts of assault in the third degree. The school is in Stockton, Cedar County.

The Missouri attorney general’s office last week filed eight felony charges against Smock in Cedar County, including four counts of legal sodomy or attempted sodomy involving a child under the age of 14; and one count of statutory second-degree sodomy or attempted sodomy. He was also charged with one count of sexual misconduct involving a child under 15, fourth degree abuse of a child under 17 and first degree criminal harassment.

Smock was also charged on December 23 in Greene County with second degree legal sodomy, third degree pedophilia on a child under 14, and seduction or attempted seduction of a child under 15, according to court records. According to a probable cause affidavit, that charge involved Smock’s alleged grooming and sexual abuse of a 13-year-old boy at a doctor-owned rental home in Springfield.

When FBI: most wanted viewers welcome the CBS drama to their screens in early January, Tali LaCroix will be leaving for school in Canada – and that will put Jess (and possibly her relationship with Sarah) to the test.

The last time we hooked up FBI: most wanted – corn before all hell broke loose at the mall – Tali (played by YaYa Gosselin) had just learned that she had entered a prestigious boarding school in Canada. Although Jess (Julian McMahon) was a bit overwhelmed by the very good news, at the end of the episode he took his daughter aside to share how proud he was of her bravery during the center test. commercial, then said it was time for him “Be brave” and let her pursue the educational opportunity she so deserved.

In the midseason premiere of the CBS proceedings (titled “Incendiary” and airs Tuesday, Jan.4 at 10 / 9c), Jess and his girlfriend Sarah (Jen Landon) see Tali at the airport, and from there start to adapt to their “empty nest.”

And what might that transition look like for Special Surveillance Agent Jess LaCroix?

“Look, I think he might initially manage it, on the area, pretty good, ”McMahon told TVLine. But in reality? “I don’t think it’s something he’s going to handle as well,” admitted the Aussie actor.

After all, Jess “has had a rough road the last few years,” noted McMahon, “so learning that the cornerstone of her emotional connection is [is going away]…. That will leave a hole, that’s for sure.

And Sarah, who Jess hasn’t even dated in a year, is yet to fill such an emotional void for the hard-working G-man.

“I don’t know if Sarah can be that [person] for now, ”McMahon ventured. “In fact, I’m pretty sure Jess and Sarah are not here again.

As it stands, with Jess often busy hunting fugitives and her in-laws (through his late wife Angelyne), Nelson and Marilou, living off camera (now in Canada) since Nathaniel left. Arcand / Clinton FBI: most wanted, “Sarah had to take care of raising Tali on her own, and Jess didn’t quite know how to handle this”McMahon shared.

KANSAS CITY (AP) – The doctor at a private Christian boarding school who has been investigated for abuse in Missouri has been charged with child sex crimes.

An arrest warrant was issued Thursday for David Earl Smock, 57, a longtime doctor at Agape boarding school.

Smock is charged with second-degree legal sodomy, third-degree child abuse of a child under 14 and seduction or attempted seduction of a child under 15, according to court records.

Smock was not in custody on Friday, according to the website for the Greene County Jail, where the case was filed. The probable cause statement was not immediately available on Friday as the court was closed for the holidays.

Agape remains under surveillance after five staff members charged in September with assaulted students. One of the accused is Smock’s son-in-law.

Smock, who runs a walk-in clinic in Cedar County and volunteers with a Springfield homeless ministry, has other connections to the school. One of his sons is married to the granddaughter of the founder of Agape. And it features prominently on Agape’s website, supporting the school model and encouraging parents to send their struggling boys there. Smock said on the site that he was working with the school to wean the boys off medication for behavioral problems.

Smock also owns an 11-bedroom mansion that a former Agape chief of staff uses to run another Christian boarding school called Legacy Academy Adventures.

No attorneys are listed for Smock in online court records. And he couldn’t be reached at his clinic, which was closed on Friday.

Fourteen years after joining the Giants as an unpaid reliever reliever and training room assistant, Taira Uematsu has broken down a barrier even he had not realized existed.

After being the first to arrive at the stadium every day for over a decade, having said yes to all the menial tasks, from filling water cans in the backyards at 6 a.m. to participating in ‘a pitcher on the day off a road trip throwing thousands and thousands of fast balls to the center strike, and after making himself totally indispensable to two managers, he will become the first coach in the history of major leagues born and raised in Japan.

“It’s a dream come true for me,” said Uematsu, who Giants manager Gabe Kapler promoted from a support staff position to assistant coach in November. “I didn’t know I was the first one. It’s awesome. But it does not change anything. I didn’t think about that. I just wanted to be part of this team.

Kapler also didn’t realize the significance. He had no intention of making headlines or making history when he promoted Uematsu to fill a position that opened up when assistant coach Mark Hallberg was raised to replace coach. retired third baseman Ron Wotus. It was just the obvious thing to do.

“Taira was tenacious in her job to support the rest of the staff,” Kapler said via text message. “His work ethic is truly second to none. He made it impossible to deny having put it on staff.

As a result, the first native Japanese speaker of a major league team is not a former star player. He is not a respected coach or manager of Yomiuri, Hanshin or Hiroshima.
