Logan Takes 1st Place at Hansville Pinewood Derby

5 02 2011


Logan's Podcast NASCAR, with prime sponsor, takes first place at the GHCC Pinewood Derby

Fueled with “The Power of the Podcast,” Logan Lamar took first place at the 2011 Greater Hansville Community Center Pinewood Derby.  In NASCAR fashion, Logan’s racer was stickered up with the six different podcasts that Dad (Dr. Lamar) currently produces — with the flagship podcast, SpinalColumnRadio, prominently positioned for all to see. And to top it off, Logan wore appropriate attire.

Acting as audio-engineer, Logan helps Dad produce their smorgasbord of podcasts for the community and beyond: Spinal Column Radio, Spine BitesService Above Self Radio, Kingston Chamber Podcast, A Happy Home Podcast, and Scandia Bible Church Podcast.

In addition to Logan’s win, younger brother Clayton’s “Podcast Truck” smoked competition and took second place in an extremely close battle for first.

Good Job Boys!…. and thanks for letting us sponsor you.  😉

Voice of the Kingston Passenger Ferry

Welcome Aboard the Spirit of Kingston!

Welcome Aboard the Spirit of Kingston!

With well over a decade of community backing and persistence, the town of Kingston FINALLY attained a nautical transportation link to the downtown core of Seattle…. and from the looks of it, it has a great chance of staying afloat!

With such strong community involvement in the makings of the ferry that we now see today, I, along with Linda Fyfe, were very proud and honored when Sound Runner asked us to be the safety announcement “voices” that commuters listen to everyday as they travel to and from work.

Below are the recordings of our first go at this.  🙂

Kingston Chamber Radio

16 06 2010

It seemed a shame to have our SpinalColumnRadio Podcast Studio sit idle in between episodes, so Dr. Lamar and audio-engineer-son, Logan, teamed up with the Excecutive Director of the Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce, Linda Fyfe, to help record and produce their weekly KITZ radio spots.  Heard daily at 10:30 am on the 1400 AM Kitsap County Radio Station (click here for a live stream), Dr. Lamar and Linda Fyfe run down the North End Chamber News in 2 minutes flat.  The broadcast is also blasted out in the Kingston Chamber Email Update and is available on the Kingston Chamber website. Plans to make the broadcast available via podcast through RSS and iTunes are set for the upcoming future.

Kites Over Kingston A Hit!

19 04 2010

They say that the “Third Time’s a Charm.” And so it was for the 3rd Annual Kites Over Kingston that took place on April 10, 2010.  We had lots of kids, lots of kites, hot dogs, kite making, popcorn, live brass band music, sun, fun, and, of course, wind.  I was the emcee and my kids helped at the kite making table. Good ol’ Hometown Kingston Fun!

Special Thanks to my Co-chair Susan Rodgers of Design Connection for doing the majority of the “behind the scene work.” Thank you to Connie at Kingston Quilt Shop for making our wonderful Kite awards… as well as Nick over at Pizza Factory for supplying us with more straws than we needed for our Kite Making Station, and the free Mini Pizzas for our award winners.  Also thank you to our judges — Sally Christy, Rick Lanning, and Sharon Nuss.  Oh, and then there’s Pete DeBoer for allowing us the use of his personal PA system.

Kites Over Kingston is sponsored by the Events Committee of your Kingston Chamber of Commerce.

Check out the slide show below.  It’s like you were there!
