- Lawmaker seeks probe after AP reveals maggots in NY facility
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Saturday Aug 12, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state lawmaker is demanding a federal investigation into New York state's care for the disabled following a recent Associated Press story that revealed the case of a man infested with maggots in a state-run group home.Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, of Utica, told the AP on Saturday that he is asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the group home and other state-regulated facilities for the disabled where there have been allegations of abuse and neglect.A copy of the report was obtained by The Associated Press, which found that New York state is not alone in making it difficult for members of the public to access records about allegations of abuse and neglect in state-regulated facilities for the disabled.
- Judith Jones, editor of Julia Child, dead at 93
By Hillel Italie - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
NEW YORK — Judith Jones, a consummate literary editor who helped revolutionize American cuisine by publishing Julia Child and other groundbreaking cookbook authors, worked for decades with John Updike and Anne Tyler and helped introduce English-language readers to “The Diary of Anne Frank,” has died at age 93.Mrs. Jones, who spent more than 50 years at Alfred A. Knopf before retiring in 2011, died early Wednesday at her summer home in Walden, Vt.Few better embodied and lived out the ideal of a life in New York publishing than the slender, refined Mrs. Jones, whom Tyler once praised, both as a person and an editor, as “very delicate and graceful, almost weightless.”Mrs. Jones worked at one of the leading publishing houses with some of the world’s most beloved authors.Tyler, however, thought the movie “stupid” because of a scene in which Mrs. Jones backs out of a dinner at an author’s home because it’s raining, something the real editor would never have done.Mrs. Jones was herself an author and gourmet who collaborated on several cookbooks with her husband Evan Jones, contributed to numerous food magazines and wrote the memoir The Tenth Muse:The year before, she received the James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award, a fitting prize for Mrs. Jones, who published Beard and was a close friend.“One day my boss said, ‘Oh, will you get rid of these books and write some letters,’” she explained in a 2001 interview with the Associated Press.The company, run by founders Alfred and Blanche Knopf, was eccentric and old-fashioned, where women were warned against attending meetings because strong language might be used.Mrs. Jones was among the first to realize that World War II soldiers returning from Europe might be ready for more sophisticated cuisine.Mrs. Jones’ most famous discovery was Child, a middle-aged American chef in the early ’60s who, like Mrs. Jones, had returned to the states after living for years in Paris.Other chefs with whom Mrs. Jones worked included pioneers in California cuisine (Alice Waters), Middle Eastern food (Claudia Roden) and cooking from the American South (Edna Lewis).
