About 1.5 hours south of the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, Lake Whitney State Park is a beautiful setting for enjoying the outdoors. Recreational activities include swimming, fishing, boating, scuba diving, hiking, biking, nature watching and camping. The park also includes a small airstrip used by miniature aviation enthusiasts.
(Click 2:43 for shortcut to Clogging) This was the individual “freestyle clogging” exhibition by the Green Grass Cloggers with old time string band music by Strictly Strings from Boone, North Carolina. This was entertainment-only included in the Dance Competition hour at the end of the day.
This 2018 video from vafolklife is a must see:
I’d like to share this very informative comment recently (July 2018) posted by one of the Green Grass Cloggers (lady in red t-shirt) from Asheville, North Carolina. (jlw37663)

Just to provide a bit more info: Clogging/Flatfooting is considered a dance that was created in the Appalachian Mountains and was influenced by styles of the Native Americans, Africans, Irish, Scottish, and Brits. Originally, people danced without taps on wooden porches to create rhythms as musicians played old-time tunes.
Green Grass Cloggers formed in 1971 out of East Carolina University and have performed around the world throughout the years. We now have a team in Asheville, NC and Greenville, NC, and perform separately and together. Typically we wear colorful costumes and tap shoes. This video was an informal freestyle line which allows dancers to showcase their own styling and steps.
Several asked about the change in dancers that happened on stage – because this was an informal thing, we were getting organized while being introduced. Not sure why the one dancer didn’t return to the stage, but I promise that we all get along amazingly well!
If you’d like to learn more about or book the Green Grass Cloggers, go to our website:
If you are interested in lessons, I’d be happy to discuss possibilities. I’m wearing the red shirt. Here is my FB page:
“Strictly Strings” band is Kathleen Burnett, Willow Dillon, Anissa Burnett, Caleb Coatney, and Cecil Gurganus (Watauga JAM instructor and mentor). All these folks are from Watauga County, North Carolina which is also the location of Appalachian State University.
See what happens when Appalachian traditional music and dance meets up with Indian traditional dance in the town of Los Angles, California- truly amazing and entertaining:

Goliad State Park & Historic Site
If you’ve been to Goliad State Park & Historic Site, you’re probably familiar with the rich cultural history of the site. What you might not have experienced are the outdoor activities at the park; like camping, nature hikes, biking, and paddling the nearby Goliad Paddling Trail. There’s a lot to do here no matter you primary interest.

The Atheist Experience episode 20.42 for October 23, 2016 with Russell Glasser and Don Baker.
Call the show on Sundays 4:00-6:00pm CDT: 1-512-686-0279
We welcome your comments on the open blog thread for this show.
YouTube comments are at present disabled in our channel, to the displeasure of some. However, each video has a prominent link to the associated open thread that appears on our blog. In the past we’ve tried opening up the channel to comments, but we found that a very high number of episodes wound up being flooded with a combination of spam, long winded apologists, and various obscene or misogynistic comments directed at various hosts by people with an axe to grind. This seems to be the nature of YouTube comment sections, in our experience.
We do moderate the blog, the same way that we moderate chat during the show, as well as comments on our Facebook group. For comment sections that are “officially” associated with our show (and, to a much lesser extent, channels that may give the unintended appearance of being official), we prefer not to play host to straight up ad hominem attacks and bigotry. As a general policy we do not block commenters simply on the basis of disagreement with our point of view. However, we do prefer discussion environments that don’t actively chase off more reasonable contributors.

WHAT IS THE ATHEIST EXPERIENCE?
The Atheist Experience is a weekly call-in television show in Austin, Texas geared at a non-atheist audience. The Atheist Experience is produced by the Atheist Community of Austin.
The Atheist Community of Austin is organized as a nonprofit educational corporation to develop and support the atheist community, to provide opportunities for socializing and friendship, to promote secular viewpoints, to encourage positive atheist culture, to defend the first amendment principle of state-church separation, to oppose discrimination against atheists and to work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.
We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.

First it was Wisconsin. Now it’s North Carolina that is redefining the term “battleground state.” On one side: a right-wing government enacting laws that are changing the face of the state. On the other: citizen protesters who are fighting back against what they fear is a radical takeover. This crucible of conflict reflects how the battle for control of American politics is likely to be fought for the foreseeable future: not in Washington, DC, but state by state.
This week on Moyers & Company, “State of Conflict: North Carolina” offers a documentary report from a state that votes both blue and red and sometimes purple (Romney carried it by a whisker in 2012, Obama by an eyelash in 2008). Now, however, Republicans hold the governor’s mansion and both houses of the legislature and they are steering North Carolina far to the right: slashing taxes on corporations and the wealthy, providing vouchers to private schools, cutting unemployment benefits, refusing to expand Medicaid and rolling back electoral reforms, including voting rights.
At the heart of this conservative onslaught sits a businessman who is so wealthy and powerful that he is frequently described as the state’s own “Koch brother.” Art Pope, whose family fortune was made via a chain of discount stores, has poured tens of millions of dollars into a network of foundations and think tanks that advocate a wide range of conservative causes. Pope is also a major funder of conservative political candidates in the state.
Pope’s most ardent opponent is the Reverend William Barber, head of the state chapter of the NAACP, who says the right-wing state government has produced “an avalanche of extremist policies that threaten health care, that threaten education [and] that threaten the poor.” Barber’s opposition to the legislature as well as the Pope alliance became a catalyst for the protest movement that became known around the country as “Moral Mondays.”
“State of Conflict” is more than a local story. It offers a case study of what may be the direction of American politics for years, perhaps decades, to come.
“State of Conflict” is a collaboration between Okapi Productions, LLC and Schumann Media Center, Inc., headed by Bill Moyers, which supports independent journalism and media programs to advance public understanding of the critical issues facing democracy.
