Page 8 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, January 28, 2016 The town plow saw lots Of action over the weekend when about ten inches of snow had to be removed from all the streets in town. KudOs to the town crew for the fantastic job they did! Gatlinburg named top "Cool Spot for Summer Meetings" The votes are in! ConventionSouth's readers and destination Facebook fans have selected Gatlinburg as their top pick for "The South's Cool Spots For Summer Meetings." In December 2015, ConventionSouth editors compiled a Facebook bal- lot with a list of 60 meet- ings destinations that are well fit for summer meet- ings as they offer escape from the summer heat. From those 60 "Cool Spots," fans were asked to vote for their top picks. "Meeting Planners and event organizers from across the country look for unique destinations in the South to hold their meet- ings and events. ConventionSouth's 2016 list of the 'South's Cool Spots For Summer Meetings' provides these planners with interesting insight on some of the "South's milder temperature destinations," said ConventionSouth Editor Marcia Bradford. "By offering a place to stay cooler during the hot sum- mer months, meeting plan- ners can boost attendance and create a more comfort- able experience for partici- pants and therefore, increase the success of the gathering." "It is no surprise that Gatlinburg is top of the list. Surrounded on three sides by the Great Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg is naturally cooled by the mountains," said Mayor Mike Werner. "Gatlinburg has all the amenities of a great convention city. We are proud to be recognized by ConventionSouth read- ers as just that." The following list of 12 cities gained the top votes. The January print and digi- tal issue of ConventionSouth will share this list with meeting planners from across the country that book meeting sites in the South.

The workshops will introduce participants to the application process for the USDA Rural Development Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) and Community Connect (CC) programs. USDA Rural Development DLT grants provide financial assis- tance to encourage, and improve telemedicine and distance learning services in rural areas through the use of telecommunications, computer networks and related advanced technolo- gies that students, teachers, medical professionals and rural residents can use. The grants, which are awarded through a competitive process, may be used to fund telecommunications- enabled information, audio and video equipment and related advanced technolo- gies that extend education- al and medical applications into rural areas. Grants are intended to benefit end- users in rural areas, which are often not in the same location as the source of the educational or health care 'service. Applications are due in mid-March. The Community Connect program helps fund broadband deploy- ment in rural communities where it is not yet econom- ically viable for private sector providers to deliver service. Eligible appli- cants include state and local governments, non- profits and for-profit cor- porations. While this pro- gram has not yet been announced for fiscal year 2016, USDA personnel will discuss the application process, eligibility and par- ticipant questions.
