    FloydJAMS - A Crooked Road/ JAM Program: 
    A Traditional Music Program for Youth Starts in Floyd
     
    Floyd County students in grades 4 through 8 now have opportunity to learn the traditional music of the region in a new after school program at Floyd Elementary School .  The program, FloydJAMS - A Crooked Road / JAM Program, is providing almost 80 students with instruction on fiddle, banjo or guitar from exceptional traditional music instructors on Monday afternoons. 
     
    The Crooked Road: Virginia's Heritage Music Trail, Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM, Inc.) and The Jacksonville Center for the Arts have been working with Floyd County business and community leaders, educators, and school system representatives to create this new program for students.  "We are so excited to be able to offer this opportunity to the students of Floyd County Public Schools" said Lisa Pluska, Director of Instruction with Floyd County Public Schools. "Floyd has such a rich heritage of music and for FloydJAMS to come in and partner with the school system to continue this tradition is a true blessing".
     
    FloydJAMS is modeled after offerings through Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM Inc), which has similar programs in Virginia , North Carolina , and South Carolina . "JAM Inc, has allowed us to tap into their years of experience and hard work and continues to assist us in creating our own version of a JAM program tailored for the Floyd community" says FloydJAMS Director, Heather Krantz.  "It has been a dream of mine to help bring more music education programming here and The Crooked Road, JAM Inc, the Jacksonville Center and many other local folks and businesses have helped make that happen."
     
    The Jacksonville Center for the Arts is the Nonprofit Sponsor for FloydJAMS.  "Through FloydJAMS, these students will have better access to opportunities to learn how to play a music instrument, which can have a positive lifelong impact in their lives, including their academic performance.", said Jacksonville Center Director, John McEnhill. 
     
    The Crooked Road promotes economic development in Southwest Virginia by promoting the region's unique heritage music. FloydJAMS is funded in part by The Crooked Road, the Appalachian Regional Commission, The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission, The Virginia Commission for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.  Additional Support has been provided by Mitchell Music Company, the Floyd Country Store, the D'Addario Foundation, The Blue Ridge Music Makers Guild, the Floyd Moose Lodge, Plenty!, Citizens Telephone Cooperative and several anonymous donors and area businesses.

    Dear Astronomy Enthusiasts,
    Apple Ridge Farm has created an astronomy club providing access for the public to the GE Dark Sky Observatory. The club is currently being facilitated by Michael Good GE Volunteer Project Lead  (please see note below for his vita)
    Mr. Good designed the observatory to have dual telescope piers. The first holds a Meade 8" Schmidt Casse grain (f/10). This is an LX50 ? it has sidereal tracking and slow speed controls but no "go to" capability. The second scope is a Meade 12" LX200, replete with GOTO functionality and RS232 port for remote telescope operation. The observatory was built entirely by Ge volunteers. 
     Here is a link to the Apple Ridge site/ observatory information
     http://appleridge.org/news/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=38&Itemid=85
    We will meet monthly every 2nd Monday of the month (freeing the 3rd Monday for people wishing to attend the Roanoke Valley Astronomical Society (RVAS) meetings in Roanoke). Like the RVAS, we will meet from 7:30pm till approximately 9pm monthly.
    Every meeting will begin in the Meador building . A decision will be made early if the weather and road conditions will allow driving up thegravel road to the observatory (limited parking). If so, the primarypurpose for the club will be to observe at the GE Dark Sky Observatory.If the weather does not permit, a program will be presented to thepublic.

    LINK MUSEUM A POPULAR TRAVEL DESTINATION    

    The O. Winston Link Museum in Downtown Roanoke offers railroad fans, art and history enthusiasts, and community residents a new destination in Western Virginia.  Since the museum's grand opening in January, more than 15,000 people - sixty percent from beyond the Roanoke Valley, from most every state in the U.S.and many foreign countries - have admired the exhibition of Link's world-famous work.

    Photo by O. Winston Link
       
    O. Winston Link's photos of the last days of steam locomotion along the Norfolk and Western Railway take a nostalgic look back to 1950s life - to the world of drive-in theaters and old country stores along the rail lines.  Set in the rural Appalachian Mountains and locomotive shops, Link captured a simpler era that many in the United States look back to with fond memories.

       The museum, housed in the renovated Norfolk and Western Railway passenger station, exhibits more than 225 prints from Link's acclaimed Norfolk and Western project, Link's photographic equipment, and artifacts from N&W's freight and passenger services. Several interactive stations present the chance to examine Link's elaborate lighting arrangements or hear his steam locomotive sound recordings.

        "Some of our visitors worked for N&W for more than 30 years - they really enjoy seeing their memories of the railroad displayed for the public" said Kim Pulice, Manager of Museum Operations.  Many visitors leave noticeably stirred by the photographs - reminded of working with the long-gone steam trains and fellow railroad employees.photo by O. Winston Link

       Most images are black and white, and most are taken at night.  Using hundreds of flashbulbs, Link dramatically lit his subjects to highlight the life around the railroad.  Pulice noted, "Link had a knack for adding a human element to photos of machines.  His most striking images are those that show how  rail interacted with communities and individuals."  Small communities that rarely got attention from the outside world at that time  - Rural Retreat, Vesuvius, Iager, Green Cove - were documented by Link's cameras.

       One of the most popular features in the museum is the 30-minute documentary film "What a Picture I Got," containing interview footage and background information about Link.  The film also dramatically documents the troubles with Link's ex-wife, Conchita, and her plans to steal Link's prints and other equipment.

       Additionally, the museum gift shop has expanded since the grand opening to include a diverse inventory.  Children's items - including toys and books - are now available, and the shop has an extensive line of Norfolk and Western and O. Winston Link memorabilia.

       "We're always adding something interesting.  "

        As an added convenience,visitors can now buy joint tickets for the Virginia Museum of Transportation at a 20 percent savings.  The two museums are connected by a three-block O. Winston Link Rail walk.

        The O.Winston Link Museum is located at 101 Shenandoah Avenue in Roanoke,across from Hotel Roanoke.  The museum is open year-round, Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5p.m.  Admission: Adults $5, Seniors $4, Children $3. Group rates are available, and the museum is available for after hours functions.  More information is available on the web at www.linkmuseum.org or by phone at 540-982-5465.
