These musicians grew up within a culture which values tradition, communi- ty, and homemade enter- tainment. They primarily have worked separately, not as 'a group, but all have performed in legendary bluegrass bands: Shelor with The Lonesome River Band, Sisk with Ramblers Choice, Baker with Bill Monroe and His Blue Grass Boys, and Taylor and Lane with Blue Highway. For an afternoon of inspired and inspiring blue- grass music by five natives of Southwest Virginia, plan to be on the Crooked Road on June 12. Tickets are available online at www.mtnsofmu-, at the gate, and locally at the Wise County Chamber of Commerce, 765 Park Avenue, SW, Norton, Va. 24273, tele- phone 276/679-0961. The Crooked Road rightly claims a talented array of bluegrass musi- cians, and a group of them will display those talents at a concert in Norton on Sunday, June 12 at 2 p.m. The Crooked Road All Star Bluegrass Band fea- tures Sammy Shelor, banjO; Junior Sisk, guitar and vocals; Billy Baker, fiddle; Wayne Taylor, bass and vocals; and Shawn Lane, mandolin and vocals. The five will appear at the Country Cabin, 6034 !

Lawson, to be awarded to deserving Southwest Virginia King of Kings and Lord of Lords have folks in the same shape today. However, they met up one day and the snake asked the rabbit what he was. He said, "I don't know. I've never seen the light of day." That snake said, "Let me wrap around you and maybe I can tell you what you are." He did and he reached a conclusion. He said, "You have four feet. You have got two big ears and two big pop eyes and a little bunny tail. You're a rabbit." The rabbit said, "Well, good. I always wanted to be a rabbit. What are you?" The snake replied, "I was born blind and I don't knOW." The rabbit said. "Well, let me feel of you" and maybe I can tell you what you are." After kindly rub- bing around on him he said, "Well, you're long, slick, you're cold. You must be very cold blooded. You've got little beady eyes and a forked tongue. Why, you're a politician. That's what you are." So goes the world today. I hear people say all the time, "We can't trust the leadership of this country anymore. Some will say, Well, who can we trust?" My reply is "Jesus Christ. He's never lost a battle. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. And He is the only one that's sure to win." Well, I guess there's been a million songs writ- ten and I've written a few myself. I guess one of the truest songs I've ever heard is "Time Has Made a Change." I can look back on my life here on this planet Earth and I sure have seen how time has made a change. It seems to me that the people who are running our government have mainly gone crazy. If I understand history, the government was formed to secure the borders of this country. That was their only purpose that they had. But now they have reached out and got into everything that is wrong. Of course, the Bible said there would be a time when they would call good evil and evil good. That time's here.
