1 6 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON - Farmer's ADVOCATE - Thursday, June 29, 2000 Complete North A simple idea mushroomed into big action at North Jefferson El- ementary School when parents, businesses and volunteers came together to construct a new track for students. Students at the school compete in the Presidential Physical Fit- ness Test, one component of which requires students to run for one mile. Physical Education teacher Montgomery Keiter attempted to pace off an oval to create a rough version of a track for students to use. Several teachers, watching the process, began talking about the school's need for a track. Dave and Marsha Kidwell, par- ents of a sixth grade student, over- heard the comments and went into action. Dave Kidwell approached Prin- cipal Patrick Blanc about the idea of building the track. He obtained more than $600 in donations from local businesses for the project, as well as securing donated gravel from Millville Quarry and hauling services from Snyder Hauling and Courtney Hauling. Using his own equipment, Dave Kidwell excavated a track area around the school's playground. North Jefferson Elementary teach- ers Emma Layman and Nona Painter assisted Marsha Kidwell and her children, Heather and Robby, in spreading the gravel over the newly created track bed. Students now have a track with designated distances to practice for the President's Physical Fit- ness Test. ROBIN AND LINDA WILLIAMS AT COURTHOUSE The Bluemont Concert Series will feature the nationally re- nowned performers Robin and Linda Williams at its concert at the old Frederick County Courthouse in downtown Winchester, Friday, June 30. It is the second often Fri- day evening performances sched- uled by Bluemont for Winchester this summer. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and requested admission is $3 per person. All are welcome. Since the early 1970s, Robin and Linda Williams have regularly performed with Garrison Keillor on National Public Radio's "A Prai- rie Home Companion." They have taken their country and folk music from coast to coast, performing at international festivals and major venues from Los Angeles to Radio City Music Hall in New York. They have released 11 recordings and written two musicals for the Lime Kiln Theater. All of that has coa- lesced into a career that has taken them from the stage of the Grand Ole' Opry to intimate coffeehouses. Their homespun mixture of tradi- tional music and contemporary songwriting has produced two top hits on the Americana music chart. Their latest release, In The Com- pany of Strangers, continues that exploration of a unique engaging vein of deeply rooted American music. Spreading gravel on the new track are, left to right, Heather Kidwell, teachers Nona Painter and Emma Layman, and Mar- sha Kidwell. Dave Kidwell breaks ground for the new track with his bull- dozer. Snyder Hauling and Courtney and Sons deliver a load of gravel to the school. Carolyn Ott P.O.
