Using a living-systems approach as the basis for all of its work, Biohabitats employs whole-systems thinking through applied ecology to address a variety of projects at multiple scales.

Its energy is unbridled. Its truth is unwavering. It's Hair, and it’s time. The Los Angeles Times raves, “Exhilarating! Floating on a cloud of euphoria.”

7:00 PM - 10:00 PM Mountain Stage with Larry Groce
Sonny Landreth is a Southwest Louisiana-based guitarist and singer-songwriter. Known for his distinctive style of slide guitar playing, his 11th studio album, bearing the fittingly evocative title "Elemental Journey," is something very different. Not a typical blues album, "Elemental Journey" is "a wonderfully bright, woven mesh of blues, strings, rock, zydeco, country, reggae, and jazz that shifts and turns and builds within each track, and all of it fits seamlessly together like a huge musical quilt made for guitar heaven," raves AllMusic.com.

Garland Jeffreys’ long career has been dedicated to addressing socially conscious themes across a broad range of musical styles.  He’s been called an edgy urban poet, the sound of New York, a confessional singer-songwriter, and an explorer of the links between rock, race and rebellion whose work should be taught in schools.  With songs covered by artists as diverse as punk pioneers The Circle Jerks (“Wild in the Streets”) and the neo-folk band Vetiver (“Lon Chaney”), Jeffreys is truly unclassifiable.

"Luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies" is how the New York Times describes songs by Lucius, a five-piece band from Brooklyn, NY. At the center of Lucius are the "alluring and magnetic" (Seventeen) singers-in-unison, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. After graduating from Boston’s Berklee School of Music, the two young friends and collaborators moved into an old Victorian house in Brooklyn’s Ditmas Park – a former recording studio and music school. The four-story musical fortress, rife with left-behind musical treasures, housed many musician friends including, eventually, Wolfe and Laessig’s future bandmates, Danny Molad, Peter Lalish and Andrew Burri. 

JOHNNYSWIM is a Los Angeles based duo composed of Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez. The two began writing and singing together in the spring of 2006 and found that their similar influences of folk, soul, and rock blended together lusciously. Nashville newspaper The Tennesean describes JOHNNYSWIM as, "A mix of Lauryn Hill and John Mayer."

2:15 PM - 4:15 PM WVU National Writing Project

With WVU Alumni Weekend just around the corner, the WVU National Writing Project, part of the College of Education and Human Services, is preparing to host a workshop for alumni that will be followed by a talk from internationally-recognized Appalachian storyteller Hannah Harvey, on Saturday, June 8.

According to Malayna Bernstein and Audra Slocum, directors of the WVU Alumni Writing Project and professors at the college, the two events will explore some basic techniques of oral storytelling, how to develop compelling stories, and the connections between oral storytelling and writing.

We live in a region of rich storytelling traditions, and drawing from these traditions can help strengthen students' creative expression in writing. Our guest speaker draws from these traditions to inspire and demonstrate for teachers how to incorporate storytelling into writing instruction,” said Slocum.

“You don't need to be an English or language arts teacher to enjoy and learn from her talk or workshop. New teachers and experienced teachers alike are welcome,” Slocum added.

 

The first, a writing workshop for teachers titled Telling Your Stories: From the Classroom to Everyday Life, will be from 2:15 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Hilton Garden Inn, in the Suncrest A room. This 2-hour workshop is designed to help teachers hone their skills as storytellers, whether they are telling their own personal stories to friends and family, or wanting to incorporate storytelling in the classroom as a teaching tool.

Following the workshop will be a talk from Harvey called Why Stories Matter: How Stories Shape Identity and Culture, from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. Harvey’s talk will combine lecture and live storytelling performance to convey the power of storytelling to shape identity and culture.

“We hope that teachers join us for the talk and workshop to feed their own creative spirits, as well as to learn how to inspire the creative spirits in their students,” Bernstein said.

“The National Writing Project at WVU is based on this model of inspiring teachers so that they can do the same for their students. We'll be having future events that will build on this idea.  We hope teachers will join us, knowing that their knowledge and experience will be respected.”

The National Writing Project began in 1974 in Berkley and has since grown into a large network of sites located in schools across the country. The WVU chapter was established in 1987 and was housed in the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences until this year, when it moved to the College of Education and Human Services.

Both events are free and open to the public. For more on the WVU chapter of the National Writing Project, visit www.nwp.wvu.edu. For information on Hannah Harvey, visit www.covestory.com.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM Don McLean
Don McLean is one of America's most enduring singer-songwriters. He is best known for “American Pie” and “Vincent (Starry Starry Night).” McLean’s rich American folk music was immortalized in Roberta Flack’s Grammy-winning hit “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” a song written after one of McLean’s mesmerizing concerts at the Troubadour theater in Los Angeles. Since first hitting the charts in 1971, McLean has amassed more than 40 gold and platinum records worldwide and was inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame in 2004. His songs have been recorded by artists from every musical genre, most notably Madonna's No. 1 recording of “American Pie” in 2000 and George Michael's version of "The Grave" in 2003—sung in protest at the Iraq War. Thirty years after its original release, “American Pie” was voted number 5 in the “365 Songs of the Century” compiled by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the National Endowment for the Arts. McLean continues to tour the world and in March 2012, he was the subject of “American Troubadour,” a documentary produced by multi Emmy award-winning film director Jim Brown. This promises to be an unforgettable evening of music.

'Outspoken for 4-H' Bike Ride
''Outspoken for 4-H' bike ride celebrates 10th anniversary of raising funds for youth across the state With the help of 28 cyclists from West Virginia and surrounding states, youth are able to attend 4-H because of funds raised by the “Outspoken for 4-H” bike ride. Riders raise funds for the cause through individuals and organizations that sponsor them during the trek. The money raised is used to award 4-H camp scholarships to young people across the state. This year’s bike ride, starting in the northern panhandle, boasts the largest number of riders and largest one-year increase of riders since the first ride 10 years ago. “Many Outspoken for 4-H participants return because they have enjoyed the people, the challenge and the chance to help 4-H members,” ride coordinator, James Grantham, says. On June 13, riders will begin their journey at the World’s Largest Teapot in Chester, and travel through 11 counties before arriving at their destination—WVU Jackson’s Mill State 4-H Camp in Weston. At the end of the ride, more than 300 members and participants of 4-H will excitedly greet the cyclists’ arrival at the Mill, which opens the 4-H Older Members’ Conference. Beginning at the northern tip of the state, the 4-day ride will take the following course into north-central West Virginia: Thursday, June 13 –Hancock, Brooke, Ohio and Marshall Counties Starting from the World’s Largest Teapot in Chester, cyclists will stop for lunch at Camp Russell in Oglebay Park and eventually arrive at the Grave Creek Mound in Moundsville. The cyclists will travel by vehicle from Moundsville to New Martinsville. Friday, June 14 –Wetzel and Monongalia Counties Departing from New Martinsville, the riders will continue their trek shortly after stopping for breakfast at the Wetzel County 4-H Camp. Continuing along W.V. 7, they will make their way onto the Caperton Trail and arrive at Knapp Hall in Morgantown. Saturday, June 15 –Preston, Taylor and Marion Counties Leaving from Knapp Hall in Morgantown, the cyclists will travel down Decker’s Creek Trail and on to Arthurdale before eventually arriving at the Mother’s Day Shrine in Grafton. Continuing on, they will pull into the Marion County 4-H Camp in Farmington where they will spend the night. Sunday, June 16 –Harrison and Lewis Counties After departure from Farmington, the team of cyclists will make their way down U.S. 19, with a lunch break at the Harrison County Extension Office, arriving at Jackson’s Mill in the afternoon. The journey will cover more than 250 miles of rolling West Virginia hills and valleys, giving riders and volunteers a unique perspective of the state’s mountainous landscape. Ron James, a first-time rider in the event says that the ride is a challenge that he’s excited to try. James, a 4-H parent and volunteer, saw this event as a great way to help 4-H youth and an opportunity to do something with his family—his wife and son are also participating. “Our children were raised in 4-H, and I saw the positive impact and opportunities that 4-H has provided,” he said. James, a native of Hancock County, will be joining his 21-year old son Alec, who is also riding, as well as his wife Susan, who is a 4-H leader and part of the support crew for the cyclists. Riders will pass through many towns throughout the northern part of the state accompanied by medical personnel, a bike mechanic and other volunteers to ensure they have everything needed to complete the trip. Roxanne Bumgardner, a petroleum and natural gas engineering student at West Virginia University, was inspired by last year’s ride, and has returned this year for her second journey. “I saved money to buy a bike for this year’s ride, trained harder and got all of the needed gear I didn’t have last year,” Bumgardner said excitedly. She has been a 4-H member for a decade and is now a member of the WVU Collegiate 4-H Club. “Participating in the ‘Outspoken for 4-H’ ride means so much to me as a 4-H member,” she said. “The ride is so emotional, and it supports a great cause.” During the final leg of the ride, she will travel with her fellow cyclists through Harrison County—where she grew up. “4-H has impacted my life in such a positive way, and from a young age, that it inspired me to be involved in the ride again this year.” Her interest in cycling began with her participation in “Outspoken for 4-H” last year, and she has been hooked ever since, training and conditioning for this year’s journey. “I have received my share of 4-H scholarships, and I appreciate the opportunity to help other young people share in the 4-H experience,” she said.

'Outspoken for 4-H' Bike Ride
''Outspoken for 4-H' bike ride celebrates 10th anniversary of raising funds for youth across the state With the help of 28 cyclists from West Virginia and surrounding states, youth are able to attend 4-H because of funds raised by the “Outspoken for 4-H” bike ride. Riders raise funds for the cause through individuals and organizations that sponsor them during the trek. The money raised is used to award 4-H camp scholarships to young people across the state. This year’s bike ride, starting in the northern panhandle, boasts the largest number of riders and largest one-year increase of riders since the first ride 10 years ago. “Many Outspoken for 4-H participants return because they have enjoyed the people, the challenge and the chance to help 4-H members,” ride coordinator, James Grantham, says. On June 13, riders will begin their journey at the World’s Largest Teapot in Chester, and travel through 11 counties before arriving at their destination—WVU Jackson’s Mill State 4-H Camp in Weston. At the end of the ride, more than 300 members and participants of 4-H will excitedly greet the cyclists’ arrival at the Mill, which opens the 4-H Older Members’ Conference. Beginning at the northern tip of the state, the 4-day ride will take the following course into north-central West Virginia: Thursday, June 13 –Hancock, Brooke, Ohio and Marshall Counties Starting from the World’s Largest Teapot in Chester, cyclists will stop for lunch at Camp Russell in Oglebay Park and eventually arrive at the Grave Creek Mound in Moundsville. The cyclists will travel by vehicle from Moundsville to New Martinsville. Friday, June 14 –Wetzel and Monongalia Counties Departing from New Martinsville, the riders will continue their trek shortly after stopping for breakfast at the Wetzel County 4-H Camp. Continuing along W.V. 7, they will make their way onto the Caperton Trail and arrive at Knapp Hall in Morgantown. Saturday, June 15 –Preston, Taylor and Marion Counties Leaving from Knapp Hall in Morgantown, the cyclists will travel down Decker’s Creek Trail and on to Arthurdale before eventually arriving at the Mother’s Day Shrine in Grafton. Continuing on, they will pull into the Marion County 4-H Camp in Farmington where they will spend the night. Sunday, June 16 –Harrison and Lewis Counties After departure from Farmington, the team of cyclists will make their way down U.S. 19, with a lunch break at the Harrison County Extension Office, arriving at Jackson’s Mill in the afternoon. The journey will cover more than 250 miles of rolling West Virginia hills and valleys, giving riders and volunteers a unique perspective of the state’s mountainous landscape. Ron James, a first-time rider in the event says that the ride is a challenge that he’s excited to try. James, a 4-H parent and volunteer, saw this event as a great way to help 4-H youth and an opportunity to do something with his family—his wife and son are also participating. “Our children were raised in 4-H, and I saw the positive impact and opportunities that 4-H has provided,” he said. James, a native of Hancock County, will be joining his 21-year old son Alec, who is also riding, as well as his wife Susan, who is a 4-H leader and part of the support crew for the cyclists. Riders will pass through many towns throughout the northern part of the state accompanied by medical personnel, a bike mechanic and other volunteers to ensure they have everything needed to complete the trip. Roxanne Bumgardner, a petroleum and natural gas engineering student at West Virginia University, was inspired by last year’s ride, and has returned this year for her second journey. “I saved money to buy a bike for this year’s ride, trained harder and got all of the needed gear I didn’t have last year,” Bumgardner said excitedly. She has been a 4-H member for a decade and is now a member of the WVU Collegiate 4-H Club. “Participating in the ‘Outspoken for 4-H’ ride means so much to me as a 4-H member,” she said. “The ride is so emotional, and it supports a great cause.” During the final leg of the ride, she will travel with her fellow cyclists through Harrison County—where she grew up. “4-H has impacted my life in such a positive way, and from a young age, that it inspired me to be involved in the ride again this year.” Her interest in cycling began with her participation in “Outspoken for 4-H” last year, and she has been hooked ever since, training and conditioning for this year’s journey. “I have received my share of 4-H scholarships, and I appreciate the opportunity to help other young people share in the 4-H experience,” she said.

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM "The Bicentennial of West Virginia Glass: Utility Becomes Art" by Dean Six
is Facebook Tweet Pinterest LinkedIn Print Friendly and PDFPrint If a marble is “Made in the USA,” it’s likely made in West Virginia. About the turn of the 20th century, marbles, bottles and bowls went from factories and shops in West Virginia to homes across the country. Small artisan shops and factories grew in numbers, and the workers formed unions based on the type of glass they made. At one time, up to 21 percent of flat glass and 15 percent of pressed tableware in the country were made in the state, leading the nation in these kinds of production. Glass was once fourth among the state’s industries. Now, on the 200th anniversary of the glass industry in West Virginia, we can see how the craft meandered and ebbed and flowed through our state’s history. To celebrate that history, a West Virginia University alumnus and expert on the glass industry in the state will speak on the topic. Dean Six will present at the Museum Education Center, formerly The Erickson Alumni Center, located adjacent to the Creative Arts Center, on Wednesday, July 24. The lecture, titled “The Bicentennial of West Virginia Glass: Utility Becomes Art,” will begin at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Six has taken his passion for the state’s glass industry and made it a life-long journey. He was born in Ritchie County, W.Va., where coal is non-existent, and the glass industry was dominant in his childhood community. He has written numerous books on glass, as well as dozens of monographs and countless articles. He serves as the executive director of the Museum of American Glass, located in Weston, W.Va., and is employed by Replacements, Ltd. of Greensboro, N.C. “The year 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of the first hot glass production within what is today West Virginia,” Six said. “That first plant, owned by James Duvall, was located in Wellsburg and produced high-end, hand-cut tableware. “In celebration of the bicentennial, an extensive series of events is occurring from Wellsburg to Huntington, and from Charleston to Morgantown, that celebrate and share the rich heritage of the state’s glass.” Six said more than 450 glass companies in the state have produced hot glass for more than two centuries, giving West Virginia one of the most diverse and expansive glass stories in the nation. Today, five glass companies and eleven hot glass studios continue to produce glass for utility and art. For more information about the lecture, contact Six at deansix@replacements.com or the WVU College of Creative Arts at (304) 293-4359. - See more at: http://wvutoday.wvu.edu/n/2013/07/19/hold-on-to-your-marbles-west-virginia-s-central-role-in-glass-industry-celebrated-at-200th-anniversary#sthash.jOhP6jNo.dpuf

7:05 PM - 9:35 PM Blue Ridge Mountaineers - WVU Night at Lynchburg's City Stadium
Mark your calendars! West Virginia University Night at Lynchburg's City Stadium will be held on Thursday, August 1st.  

The Hillcats will play host to the Salem Red Sox so this is a connect event for both chapters of the WVU Blue Ridge Mountaineer Club.  Wear your gold and blue Mountaineer colors and you'll be admitted for half-price i.e. $4.00 for general admission.  This is also Thursday Cheers night with $2.00 drink specials and live music before the 7:05 p.m. game.

It's also Pirates and Mermaids night, so maybe Johnny Depp will show up for the ladies and Elle MacPherson or Daryl Hannah for the guys. 

Our table will welcome you as you enter the stadium at the top of the stairs.  We're working on getting some freebies from the WVU Alumni Association and hope to have some give-a-ways arranged through our long-time Lynchburg Chapter sponsor, B&C Sports, Inc. at River Ridge Mall and the Valley View Mall -- http://bcsportsva.com/


You'll also be able to pay your yearly club dues that evening and register for the always fun August 17th Pig Roast.  We'll have the forms you'll need to complete and we'll be able to accept cash or checks made payable to WVUBRMC.


We hope to see a large contingent of fans out that night for this family event.  We get to show the Central Virginia area the strong and unified following of WVU fans in the region and also promote West Virginia University as well.  We've had section 8 on the third base side reserved for our group in years past, so we hope to be in the same place again this year.


I'll keep you posted as the date approaches so keep checking your e-mail in-box.  You can also follow the group on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/WVUBRMC/


Looking forward to a great night of Class A baseball between Rt. 460 rivals and some down-home Mountaineer energy and camaraderie.....

Hello Lynchburg Chapter Members of the WVU Blue Ridge Mountaineer Club!

It's that time of the year again!  You can smell it in the cooler, damper air.  It's in the falling leaves and in the shorter days.  It's football season and Saturday at NOON is the kick-off of the 2013 campaign for the West Virginia University Mountaineers! WVU will play William & Mary on Saturday, August 31st, and we'll be gathering again locally to make our area presence known at the Big Lick Tropical Grill.

Big Lick Tropical Grill
4001 Murray Place (Just off Odd Fellows Rd in Lynchburg)
Lynchburg, VA 24501

Thanks to the support of local sports retailer B&C Sports, Inc. at River Ridge Mall, we'll have at least 17 Door Prizes to giveaway during the games. There are a lot of neat and different items.  We'll give away one, maybe two, items this week at the end of the third quarter.  Everyone who attends the TV Watching Party will have the same chance to win since we all get one ticket/chance per person. If the item you would want to win gets picked, just go to B&C Sports, Inc. at River Ridge Mall and the friendly staff will be able to help you find that item and anything else you may want. They have a store FULL of goodies!

Available till these items run out will be some leftover freebies from the Pig Roast two Saturdays ago.  They include pocket football schedules, game day guides, & WV Alumni refrigerator/car magnets, and from Advance Auto Parts:  #1 Hand Pens, Memo Pads, and spend $25 & save $5 coupons. 

We'll also be collecting our yearly membership (9/1 to 8/31) dues tomorrow as well.  The amount has been the same for several years at $20.00 per individual/family.  We'll have forms available tomorrow or you can fill out the attached 2013 Membership Form and bring it with you along with your check made payable to WVUBRMC or $20.00 in cash.  Your dues help our club put on these events for our Alumni, Friends, and Fans; to defer the operating costs of the club; to acquire giveaway items; and lastly, half of your membership is set aside to provide a yearly $1,000.00 scholarship awarded to a local/regional student attending WVU.  Your support in this endeavor is greatly appreciated.

Rick Youngblood, the Lynchburg Chairman, and I are looking forward to seeing the familiar faces at this fall's TV Watching Parties, but most of all, we hope to see many, many new faces to join our chapter.  We need you all to make it happen and to make it fun!  So be sure to spread the word to your family, friends, and other WVU fans you may meet in your local travels.  So many local WVU supporters don't know we exist, so we need your help by providing them with the our contact information (see below).  That gets the ball rollin'. 

Joannie (WVU Jersey #5) will be our server again this year and we hope to make it the best year yet at the Big Lick Tropical Grill.  Come hungry, thirsty, and rested so we can eat, drink, and be merry as we root on our beloved Blue & Gold vs. the Tribe from William & Mary.

If anyone has any questions, please send me an e-mail, shoot me a text, or give me a call.  I'm here to serve you, help you, and represent you. Can I get a big ol' Let's Goooo Mountaineers!
