Floyd

Renewable energy is on the rise across the country, but Virginia is behind the curve.  Some people are not sure if it could work for them and others are just not sure how it works.  The Floyd Energy Fest coming up next weekend, has answers.  A collaboration of 'Sustain Floyd' and Apple River Farm, it features talks on wind and solar technologies, strategies for energy efficiency and hands on help applying for a USDA grant to cut installation costs.

You know that expression, “When you see something, SAY something?” Well it’s not always about something negative.  A Floyd resident saw something good and wanted to say something about it.

The first amendment to the U.S. constitution is just a few short lines, but it speaks volumes. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

This past weekend, more than a hundred people in Floyd, Virginia came out to celebrate those words and explore their meaning.  Robbie Harris prepared this report.
