! # | # THE POCAHONTAS TIMES- JUNE 3, 1982--Pttke 6 Media Arts In Education, A Conference at Watoga Thirty-seven middle school aged children - most from Pocahontas and neighboring counties, at- tended a special Media Conference at Watoga State Park. The students, their teachers, and nine consultants spent May 6, 7, and 8 teaching and learn- ing about various media arts skills. Attending from Pocahontas County were Michelle Mospan and Lisa Johnson, students at Green Bank Middle School; Ellen Dulaney, Leigh Ann Rose, Chris Gernon and David Combs, Hillsboro Middle School; plus Brian Martin, Danny Stanley, and Donna Armstrong, all of Marlin- ton Middle School. Ms. Sue Hollandsworth and Ms. Retta Blankenahip, teach- ers with the local school system, accompanied the students. The project, titled "A Conference Extraordi- naire," was funded through financial assist- ance from the Federal Gov- ernment under Title IX of P. L. 95-561. Part A of that funding source allows mon- ies for special projects for gifted and talented chil- dren. RESA IV {Regional Education Service Agency) located in Lewisburg was granted the funds for this conference. Pocahontas, Nicholas, Greenbrier, and Webster County are serv- ed by that RESA Office and sent students to the confer- ence. Grey Cassell, the Executive Director of RESA IV, and Ashby Shaver, the Special Education Special- ist, were responsible for central coordination of the grant project. Also attending the con- ference were students from Pendleton County. Young- sters from McDowell and Raleigh Counties attended as well, and served pri- marily as assistants to the workshop leaders. The Pocahontas School system was granted per- mission to provide break- fasts and lunches through the school food services program to Conference par- ticipants. Conference funds recorded interviews, edit- ed them and learned other radio journalism tech- niques. Two interviews with Conference staff, a short feature on Canadian geese that were in the park at that time, plus the Friday night newscast on local sta- tion WVMR were all car- ried out by workshop par- ticipants. "Film Animation," con- ducted by Susan Burt, Enrichment Program teach- er with the Pocahontas Doug Yarrow, kneeling, photography consultant; Sue Camp, kneeling, teach- er/partidpant along with students of photography workshop; Ellen Dulaney, of Hillsboro Middle School, is on the far leR of the middle row.

Students made in conjunction with learned animation and trick this workshop. One was to photography using Super 8 visit Bessie Gray in Frost film. Each participant was to interview her. The other filmed using trick photog- raphy. The names of each participant were animated using such media as sand, clay, jelly beans, etc. Small groups were formed, and each made an animated feature. One was titled "Mr. Bill Goes To Wa- toga", and was based on the animated TV character. Another was produced on a checker game that comeg alive, and a third was of abstract animated se- quences done with sand. Doug Chadwick, teamed with Ms. Burt, to lead one of the sessions. "Radio Drama," led by Johanna Eurich, of Minne- haha Springs, an inde- pendent radio producer. For this workshop each group learned how to vlan, write, act in, and produce a short radio drama with sound effects. Scripting and recording techniques were stressed and at least one edit performed by each participant. A short drama titled "Little Fur People," was produced as were two "fractured" fairy tales bas- ed on Hansel and Gretel and Cinderella. Listen to local Radio Station WVMR on Saturday, June 5, and hear "Cool Callahan" plus a westernized rootin' toot- in' tale based on Cinder- ella. "Video Production led by Randy Nichols plus a- other Ohio State Univer- sity consultant. Basic tech- niques of video camera use, sounding recording, and editing skills were taught. Each was to visit Ulric Al- derman so that the group could interview him and tape Mr. Alderman per- forming old time shape note singing. The two lead- ers stressed building ap- preciation of the students' own culture rather than that stressed on TV, etc. "Photography," led by Doug Yarrow and assist- ed by two of his high school students, Lauren Hicks and Paige Hawkins, all from McDowell County. Use of a 35ram camera, exposure, focus, framing and choos- ing subjects, along with basic techniques for devel- oping film and making prints in the darkroom were taught. All students carried out all of those steps and ended up with finished prints. All took home nega- tivos to be used in devel- oping prints at school or other darkrooms. For this workshop there was a three enlarger darkroom set-up in a rustic log cabin at the park. Not typical by any means! Craig Aclmrman, Ms. Joyce Hanna, and the other staff at the park were most accommodating to the conference planners, teach- ers, and students. Wheth= er the conference can be repeated in another year will depend on availability of funds, plus written sug- gestions being compiled via review of evaluations sent to all participants.

Social Security New brides, along with anyone else who has had a recent name change, should contact the Coving- ton Social Security Office to have their names changed on social security records and to apply for a new social security card show- ing their new name, Jim Swaim, Field Representa- tive, said recently. Unless the new bride plans to use her maiden name after marriage, the record should be changed to assure that earnings are reported correctly. In addition to the appli- cation for a correction, doc- uments must be provided showing both the old and new names. For new brides, a marriage record will fulfill this requirement, Swaim said. He added that only original documents or copies certified by the issu- ing agency are acceptable and that uncertified photo- copies are not acceptable. //16 Catalog Race Sponsored by Nationwide Insurance Co., Neal Kelli- son, Agent, Marlinten; Ist, John Brislin; 2nd, Rusty Miller; 3rd, Sam Gibson: 4th, Junior Almrs; 5th, Richard Friel; 6th, Jerry Almaroad. #17 Egg and Can Ist, Shawn Shearer; 2nd, Juli Beckwith; 3rd, Eddie Hamrick; 4th, Brenda Verse. //18 Thread the Needle - 1st, Sam Gibson; 2nd, Mark Holm; 3rd, Marty Shearer; 4th, Ron Beck- with; 5th, Clarence Chap- man; 6th, Junior Shearer. #19 Thread the Needle- Open 1st, Sandra Shearer; 2nd Shawn Shearer; 3rd, Ginnie Brislin; 4th, Leah Arbo- gast; 5th, Rella Shearer; : 6th, Kathy Cook.
