leave a comment »

Decatur, Ala. – The 20th anniversary celebration of the annual Daikin Festival is set for Friday, May 23, 2014, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Morgan County Fairgrounds in Decatur. Hosted by Daikin America, the free event offers festivalgoers of all ages an opportunity to experience Japanese culture through music, exhibits, and food.

Festivalgoers are encouraged to wear happi coats and participate in the Japanese folk dances. Happi coats are cloth jackets, or robes, usually containing an emblem, family crest, or logo on the back, and are worn on festive occasions. Live music includes country, Cajun, rock & roll, big band and traditional Japanese music. The highlight of the evening is when Daikin employees take the stage with a Japanese Taiko Drums performance.

Along with traditional festival food such as hot dogs, hamburgers, popcorn, and soft drinks, festivalgoers are treated to Cajun jambalaya, barbeque sandwiches, and Japanese Yakisoba, a stir-fried mix of noodles, cabbage, carrots, and beef. All food and drinks are free of charge. In addition to free parking around the fairgrounds, free round-trip shuttle service will be provided to the fairgrounds from Decatur Mall and Austin High School.

During the festival, festivalgoers can learn more about Daikin America from a display of product exhibits. Other displays include the Daikin Homestay Program, a program where area students and teachers travel to Japan for a two-week stay. Free tethered hot-air balloon rides are also available, weather permitting. The festivities conclude with a grand prize drawing for a free vacation at 8:45 p.m.

04/30/2014 – Alabama Student Needs Votes in National Google Contest

leave a comment »

Ansley Grider vies for a scholarship and $50,000 tech grant for her school in the Doodle 4 Google competition; National finalists to be chosen from 50 state winners through public voting April 29 – May 9.

Fort Payne, Ala. – With a drawing depicting a cure for cancer, an eighth grader at Fort Payne Middle School is Alabama’s winner in the Doodle 4 Google contest. Ansley Grider will compete against 49 other state winners to see her artwork displayed on the Google homepage and receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for her school. Five national finalists will be determined by public voting at google.com/doodle4google from April 29 until May 9 at 8 p.m.

More than 100,000 children in grades K-12 entered the annual contest, which is aimed at inspiring young artists. This year’s theme was “If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place…” Kids created drawings illustrating the theme and incorporating the Google logo.
“I would invent a cure for cancer because it would save so many lives,” Grider wrote in a statement explaining her doodle. “It would give millions of people the chance to live, to love and to make countless contributions to society that would make the world a better place.”

Grider’s selection of a cancer cure as the subject of her illustration was inspired by her father’s diagnosis with bladder cancer in 2012. To watch a video of Grider being told her entry was the state winner in the contest, visit www.vimeo.com/voteforansley. To learn more, see www.facebook.com/Vote4Ansley.

Google doodlers and guest judges chose a winning doodle from each state by considering: Artistic Merit; Creativity (based on representation of the theme and use of the logo); and Theme Communication (how clearly the theme is expressed in the artwork and the written statement).

HELP ALABAMA CHILDREN BENEFIT FROM GOOGLE’S $50,000 TECH GRANT
To cast a vote, go to www.google.com/doodle4google. To find Ansley’s doodle, select grades “8-9” and click on the “Ansley Grider, AL” doodle. The public can vote using all Internet-enabled devices (computers, smart phones, tablets including iPads, etc.) and every Web browser on each device.

“We’re encouraging everyone across Alabama to cast a vote for Ansley’s doodle so schoolchildren in our state can enjoy the opportunities that would come with this technology grant,” said Shane Byrd, principal of Fort Payne Middle School. “Our school would use the grant money to purchase air printers, 3-D printers and iMac computers.”

About the Doodle 4 Google Competition
Most days, the classic multicolored Google logo sits above the search bar amidst white space on the homepage of Google, the world’s most popular Internet search engine (the page gets more clicks than any other site on the Web). But at times, the logo is altered, usually for public holidays, to mark important historical occasions and to bring attention to people and topics that might otherwise be overlooked. Clicking on a doodle brings up search results for that topic.

See every past doodle from around the world at www.google.com/doodles.

Google launched the Doodle 4 Google contest in the United States in 2008. “At Google, we believe the most ambitious ideas and untethered creativity of young people can help make the world a better place. Doodle 4 Google is meant to inspire students to think and dream big,” reads a statement from the tech giant on why it chose this year’s theme.

From across the country, 250 doodles were chosen as finalists by a panel of Google employees. Guest judges and Google doodlers selected the best doodle from each of the 50 states. The U.S. public will vote for their favorite doodle from the 50 state winners. The highest-ranking doodlers will be named national finalists and will receive a $5,000 scholarship. National finalists and a teacher at each of their schools will receive a Chromebook.

Google executives will choose one national winner, who will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held May 21 at the company’s headquarters in California. The national winner’s doodle will be animated by the Doodle team and featured on the U.S. Google homepage on June 9, 2014. He or she also will receive a $30,000 scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school.

Hamilton Chamber Leadership Conference

The Hamilton Area Chamber of Commerce will host a leadership council meeting comprised of representatives from Hamilton area civic groups and nonprofit organizations, on Tuesday, April 22, 6 p.m., at the Chamber office, located at 190 Military Street South in Hamilton.

The Chamber board in its January meeting discussed the importance of these groups and organizations to the Hamilton area, and considered ways in which it could better coordinate and facilitate the ongoing efforts of the groups, with the chamber board deciding to host a meeting of the various organizations.

The Chamber is extending invitations to two officers or representatives of each group. The purpose of the meeting will be for each group to briefly share its mission, to give an update on its plans and events for 2014, and to explore the idea of coordination of efforts of various groups, which in turn would result in greater success for not only the organizations but for the community as a whole.

Many civic groups and nonprofit organizations have been integral parts of the Hamilton community for many years. There are also newer organizations that aren’t as familiar to the public that this meeting will allow for the sharing of information about their programs and goals. The Chamber board believes this meeting will provide a great opportunity to gain knowledge as to each group’s efforts to strengthen the Hamilton area.

Invitations are being extended to known Hamilton area civic groups and nonprofit organizations, including 20th Century Club, Aggie Plaza, Downtown Hamilton Association, Hamilton Civitans, Hamilton Coterie Club, Hamilton Garden Club, Hamilton Kiwanis, Hamilton Lions Club, Hamilton Toybowl Association, Marion County Habitat for Humanity, Marion County Historical Society, Marion County Humane Society, Marion County Relay for Life, Marion County Salvation Army, Northwest Alabama Arts Council, and Reins of Life Youth Ranch.

If your group or organization does not receive an invitation, please call the Chamber office at (205) 921-7786 or email chamber@hamiltonchamberofcommerce.org and make the Chamber aware, so all qualifying groups can be included in the meeting.

04/12/2014 – An Amazing Night At The Pastime Theater!

leave a comment »

20140413-170234.jpg20140413-170147.jpg

Good friends, good stories, and good music, what a wonderful combination!

I went to the Pastime Theater in Winfield, Alabama tonight (Saturday, April 12th, 2014) with my friend Shelia to see Bobby Horton’s “Homespun Songs of the Civil War”.

I went, expecting familiar tunes and familiar stories about the War Between the States aka the Civil War. I was surprised to hear a different view by the composer, multi-instrumentalist, and entertainer, Bobby Horton.

He told a story I’d never heard told before and sang songs, some of which had familiar melodies, but most were unknown to me.

He was dressed in a period suit with a long coat and bow tie. He had some unfamiliar instruments which he played with such feeling and expertise. There was of course, a Banjo, then an old style flattop guitar or two, a Harmonica, a Flute Recorder and an instrument I first thought to be a Mandolin but it sounded like a guitar. He played and sang songs in the old style, like the men would do around the camp fire. The words to most were unfamiliar and told of young men leaving home to go to war to defend their homes and their way of life and songs that the women sang when sending their fathers, husbands, and sons off to fight that terrible bloody war.

It was a very moving performance! And the sound in the Pastime Theatre is great! The ambiance is something you just have to experience for yourself! It’s like taking a step back in time to enter the beautiful Pastime Theater Auditorium.

The bathroom facilities also are accessible and spacious. There are popcorn and cold drinks available for purchase as well.

The whole experience was such a treat! And Ms. Mary Hyche was the wonderful hostess and ‘Master (or Mistress) of Ceremonies’ who gave an eloquent introduction to the talented performer, Bobby Horton.

By the way, you might want to catch a performance by Bobby Horton soon, in May I think, at Fayette, Alabama. I’ll be sure to remind you before the event takes place.
