Steve Fesenmaeir writes \"B.J. Gudmundsson is directing a new film about Cal Price, the founder of the Pocahontas County Times. This paper was the last hand-set paper in the country. Cal Price was known world-wide for his environmentalist work, showing the people of his county and the world how important preserving the environment was more than 50 years ago. The name of the new film is \"30 - Cal Price and the Pocahontas County Times\". It\'s main sponsor is the Pocahontas County Free Libraries System. Pocahontas County is the highest county east of the Mississippi and home to the first radio telescope, The Green Bank Radio Telescope.

Peter Suber, creator of the stunningly comprehensive Free Online Scholarship Newsletter has redirected his energies and is now offering FOS News, a \"continuously updated\" blog covering the same topic:
The main purpose of the blog is to gather and disseminate news about the FOS movement, and to harness the energy and knowledge of a wide group of contributors in doing so. Part of the purpose is to allow me to wind down my work on the FOS Newsletter and free up time for other projects and obligations. I\'ll try to edit this blog with these purposes in mind. That means I\'ll want contributors who understand FOS issues and are willing to post news items. It also means that I\'m determined not to let the administration of the blog become too time-consuming. I\'d like to keep it informal and more or less self-governing.
