    Michelle, Hollow’s workshop coordinator, took a train back to D.C. today from Prince and I was super stoked to finally see the place!

    McDowell County ranks poorest in West Virginia--US POVERTY →

    We challenge EVERYONE to share the Hollow teaser today to show the other side of what MSN Money calls “the poorest county” in West Virginia. Despite the abandoned buildings and poverty, there IS hope and beauty in McDowell. https://vimeo.com/44657010

    ELKHORN WATERSHED CLEANUP 4-21-12

    By Ernie Nester 4-23-12

    Many good citizens gathered at Elkhorn and Ashland for the Elkhorn Creek Watershed Association cleanup on April 21, 2012.  There were at least 56 people involved in the cleanup efforts including area residents, Trout Unlimited volunteers, County officials, State officials and Walmart employees. Most of the volunteers came from West Virginia, but there were also volunteers from Virginia, Maryland, Indiana, and Ohio.

    The volunteers cleaned the trash from Elkhorn Creek from the site of the twin RR bridges above the upper house in Elkhorn down to below the lower house in Elkhorn which is about 1.1 miles of stream. Jim Mullens led a crew who cleaned up the trash where the spring goes under Rt. 52 in upper Maybeury and a section of Elkhorn Creek near the spring.  Chris Mullens led the crew who cleaned a large collection of trash from the Power House Road (Switchback) section where fallen trees had collected large piles of junk.

    The photo above was taken in Logan, WV in 1960 and is featured in a LIFE gallery of unseen photos of JFK. See the full album here, which also features photos of Kennedy in Welch, West Virginia where Hollow will be filmed.
Photo Caption: While part of every candidate’s retinue, security was simply not the pressing, public concern in 1960 that it would suddenly and necessarily become within a few short years. Here, seemingly alone in a crowd in Logan County, West Virginia, JFK speechifies from a kitchen chair as, mere feet away, a young boy absently plays with a jarringly realistic-looking toy gun.
