9 Years of Nyack Sketch Log: A Column That Speaks to the Moment

by Bill Batson

Since launching Nyack Sketch Log 9 years ago (on August 23, 2011), never more than now have I been so aware of the responsibility and utility of having a weekly column.

Six months ago, when COVID-19 knocked our world off its axis, this column joined our village-wide response to the pandemic. In March, Nyack Sketch Log announced the creation of the Nyack Mask Makers, an initiative I led with local artist Donna Davies Timm, which grew to 400 strong, making and distributing over 15,000 masks for frontline health care workers and the public. Thanks to everyone who shared that post and donated or volunteered. We showed that the digital medium that entertains, edifies, and, sadly, often misinforms, can also mobilize for good.

Nyack Sketch Log was called into the civic arena again in May when an unarmed African American man was killed by police in Minnesota. It was a murder that made the rally slogan “The whole world is watching” come true. A nation, stuck at home because of the pandemic, saw a life nonchalantly taken by an officer of the law, and we convulsed in rage. In subsequent columns, I examined the 400 year-old origins of systemic racism in America (400 Years of George Floyds) and the cultural workers that fuel and inform local Black Life Matters organizing (Black Lives Matter Culture).

Nyack Sketch Log also weighed in on issues less daunting than systematic racism and a global pandemic, but still seemingly intractable. One column called out Suez Water for being a terrible steward of our drinking water (Watershed Moment for Provocative Suez Proposal). And just last week, this column called on Orange & Rockland to bury our power grid (The Futilities of Above-Ground Utilities). Now, I’m not taking credit for a break-through on the persistent power outage front, but NyackNewsAndViews did report yesterday that O&R will bury the overhead electric lines that run along Lake DeForest causeway between Congers and New City. It’s a start.

From my first post to my most recent, Nyack Sketch Log has been sustained by friends, families, and neighbors. Thank you all for allowing me to tell your stories and for listening to mine.

If you have enjoyed my column at any point during the last 9 years, I ask that you support the continuation of the Nyack Sketch Log by buying one of my books or some of NSL gear at the local venues below.
