High Schoolers Kick Off 
Environmental Project at Portsmouth Site

Students from Waverly High School toured the former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant site recently as part of the Ohio University Student Annual  Site Environmental Report Summary Project.       
________________________________________
Area high school students recently toured EM's former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant as part of an annual educational outreach with Ohio University.

The most visible product of the outreach is a published summary of the annual site environmental report (ASER) prepared by the Waverly High School students and distributed to stakeholders. Ohio University administers the program under a grant provided by EM.

Program Analyst Greg Simonton of EM's Portsmouth/Paducah Project Office (PPPO) said the project rotates each year among Pike County's four public high schools and has been well received by educators and students alike.

"The student ASER project is part of our broader educational outreach program and has involved hundreds of students over seven years," Simonton said. "The students who go through this program become some of the most educated stakeholders on the Portsmouth project."

SamJam honors Crowe 
with commemorative bourbon

  The Ohio bluegrass community has seen unprecedented growth in the last few years. The number of festivals that have been started, and the growth of the music are skyrocketing, because of people with a passion for the music and the willingness to take risks for the sound we all love so well.

In 2015, Sammy Karr and Rick Greene began talks on what would soon become the SamJam Bluegrass Festival in Piketon, Ohio. In those formative days, a question arose among the co-organizers regarding who each thought was their favorite bluegrass band of all time. In unison, both announced, "J.D. Crowe and the New South."

After three successful years that includes a 2018 IBMA Momentum Award for Best New Festival, SamJam is about to embark on an event in 2019 that the co-organizers never thought possible. J.D. Crowe and the New South will perform on Friday, August 30.

What's more you ask? Crowe will stick around for Saturday and make an appearance with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. The two will reunite on stage, playing some of the tunes that changed the face of bluegrass music during the '70s and, based on Crowe's limited schedule, is something that may never be seen again.

Once arrangements were finalized, Karr started tossing ideas around on how to honor this special occasion. After some thought and discussion with Ricky Wasson, Crowe agreed to be on SamJam's first commemorative Bourbon 30 bottle. Bourbon 30 is a craft distillery in Georgetown, KY, that is a festival sponsor, owned by Jeff Mattingly.
