Weekend showcases retirement in Blacksburg

June 8-11 offers an opportunity to rediscover Blacksburg from a perspective you may not have considered--as a place to retire. Blacksburg was rated No. 1 in Virginia and No. 20 in the nation two years ago on its services, cost of living, safety, climate, and leisure opportunities for retirees in the book, Retirement Places Rated. At Retire Blacksburg Expo '95, local experts, civic leaders, and recent retirees will help you explore Blacksburg through a series of seminars, lunches, social activities, and tours of housing, shopping, and other amenities. A registration fee of $150 per person covers conference materials, bus tours, lunches, Saturday dinner, entertainment, and morning coffee. The fee also includes coupons for other meals, shopping, and recreation fees. Hotel rooms are available at discount rates ranging from $50-$80. A pre-Expo golf tournament is planned for Thurs., June 8 at the Blacksburg Country Club. For more information, call 1-800-288-4061 or fax (703) 231-9886.

Award-winning scientist champions disabled

Even though Kimiko Osado Bowman (STAT MS '61, Ph.D. '63) had polio when she was 17 and was struck with post-polio syndrome in 1978, she wasn't very interested in championing the disabled until she was appointed to a National Science Foundation (NSF) committee in 1984. Bowman, a senior research scientist with Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Engineering Physics and Mathematics Division, recently was elected to a two-year term as president of the Foundation for Science and Disability (FSD). The organization, an affiliate of the American Organization for the Advancement of the Sciences, provides information on overcoming disabilities in science careers and, through a grant, provides special equipment for disabled students. Bowman also serves as a member of the president's Committee on the Employment of Persons with Disabilities. She has used a power chair since 1978.

Tech plate still king of the road

When it comes to college license plates, Virginia Tech is still the leader of the pack. The latest figures from the Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) indicate that the university leads the University of Virginia and James Madison University in total sales. This year, Virginia Tech received nearly $40,000 from sales of the distinctive plates, up from last year's $15,000. These revenues go into the university's general scholarship fund. At last count, the DMV has sold more than 23,000 different Tech plates since 1988, plus yearly renewals of many of the plates. The university has received approximately $90,000--$15 for each sale or renewal--since it began participating in the program.

Protecting the public's right to know

Ginger Stanley (HEED '70) is a self-declared watchdog who spends much of her time as executive manager of the Virginia Press Association lobbying the Virginia General Assembly. In July, she received the Virginia Society of Professional Journalists' George Mason Award for the advancement of access to government information. She now is eligible for the national award, to be presented this summer. As head of the 160-member Virginia newspaper association, based in Richmond, Stanley seeks editors' opinions about whether not being allowed access to certain records will adversely affect their ability to keep the public informed. Then, she works to defeat bills association members feel unfairly limit public information. Stanley and her 15-member staff work with journalism schools around the state, offering career advice and facilitating links with newspapers. The association offers diversity training to help state newspapers hire, train, retain, and promote minorities. Stanley and her husband Calvin Stanley (BAD '70), who owns a road construction company in Richmond, rarely miss a home football game. "Calvin flies us to Blacksburg in our small plane, and we land right at the airport, so it only takes about 45 minutes," Stanley says. "We are tremendous Hokie fans."

Coulter recognized for service to corps

The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets (VTCCA) Alumni Board of Directors awarded Lt. Col. John Coulter (PAD '76) its first Resolution of Appreciation for Outstanding Service in recognition of his efforts to revitalize the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets. In addition to his service duties at Fort Monroe, Va., Coulter, who serves on the corps board of directors and is leadership outreach coordinator for the Peninsula area, spends countless hours recruiting, raising funds, and seeking publicity for the corps. "John constantly has a flow of ideas coming on everything pertaining to the corps; his dedication is incredible," says Henry Dekker, chairman of the VTCCA. "He is a very unusual young man. We need more people with his enthusiasm to volunteer." The resolution will be awarded annually to someone who demonstrates strongly the qualities of the eight pylons--brotherhood, honor, leadership, sacrifice, service, loyalty, duty, and "Ut Prosim"--and who has also made outstanding and conspicuous contributions to the revitalization of the corps.

Stay tuned for television comics

If you're a TV Guide reader, you may have noticed a new comic called "Stay Tuned" that runs every other week. And if you went to Virginia Tech in the '70s, you might recognize the names of the artists. The work is the brainchild of Peter Maratta (CE '75) and his twin sister Kate. After submitting a series of cartoons about television to TV Guide, the pair got a call to meet with the magazine editors in New York. "They liked our work, and we hope to have a long-term relationship with them," Maratta says. "We submit about four cartoons every other week, and they select which one to run." Although he says he is not an avid television watcher, Maratta tunes in often enough to know what's currently popular. Maratta, a partner in SOMA Architects in Alexandria, isn't planning to give up his successful career as an architect in exchange for life as a cartoonist. But, he says, he hopes to expand this "second career" even further. The Marattas' syndicated comic, "Counter Culture," ran for about three years in newspapers around the country. Maratta says they're working on a new strip they hope to syndicate.

Once was not enough

When Robert Crewdson (CHE '55) hiked the Appalachian Trail piecemeal between 1964 and 1975, he thought that would be his only trek of the entire trail. But, with the encouragement of his wife, Lois, he has just finished his second complete trail trip, which the couple began 12 years ago. "When my wife became interested in walking, we started doing it locally, hiking those portions of the trail we could manage in a day," Crewdson says. After they walked the nearby trail sections, they advertised for other couples to travel with them to the more distant regions. As rector of the Parish of the Holy Communion in Glendale Springs, N.C., Crewdson lives close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and takes young parishioners on week-long hikes each year. Crewdson says he doubts he'll hike the entire Appalachian Trail again. "At my age (61), the terrain in the north is just too difficult," he says. "But we'll certainly hike the southern portions again." Another alumnus, Paul Vail (BIOC '86) of McCoy, Va., is "thru-hiking" the trail from Georgia to Maine.

Mo Donaldson recognized posthumously

Morris T. "Mo" Donaldson (COMM '78), who served as the Virginia News Network's state Capitol correspondent since 1981, died in April, seven months after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

He is the fifth recipient of the award. Born in Washington, D.C., Donaldson worked as news director for WTON-AM in Staunton before joining the Virginia News Network. A Mo Donaldson Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established through the Office of University Development, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061-0336.

Richard Talbot, vet school founding dean, dies

Richard B. Talbot, 61, founding dean of the Virginia/Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, died in the crash of U.S. Air Flight 427 near Pittsburgh Sept. 8. Talbot came to Virginia Tech in 1974 to plan and develop the veterinary college. Talbot and William Lavery, then president of Virginia Tech, are generally credited with making the unique joint veterinary college a reality. Talbot stepped aside as dean in 1984 to return to teaching. He took leave from the university twice to serve as the director of New Animal Drug Evaluation Office at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. He was responsible for all new animal drug evaluations from companies seeking to market veterinary pharmaceuticals in the United States. Talbot was a native of Marshall County, Ks. He received a baccalaureate and doctor of veterinary medicine degrees from Kansas State University and a Ph.D. from Iowa State University. He was on the board of Hazleton Corp., a leading life-sciences corporation. Donation to the Richard B. Talbot Memorial Scholarship may be sent to the dean's office, Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, Blacksburg, VA 24061.
