Slone, Sidney Lloyd age 81, passed away Tuesday, May 23, 2006 at his home in Beavercreek, OH after losing his battle with cancer. His transition was eased by the ministrations of his sisters, his childhood sweetheart Eula Campbell and the caring nurses of Hospice of Dayton. Our Heavenly Father charged these angels with the care of his servant in his hour of need. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Bonnie in 2002, his father Nick and his mother Susie. Sidney is survived by his sons Ronald, a Vietnam veteran, and Stephen, a surgical pathologist at the University of Louisville; his sisters Joyce, Clova, Juanita Chelsea, Allyne and Mary; his brother Emil and special baby sister Cathy. He was a proud native of Pippa Passes, Ky, home of Alice Lloyd College, and long time resident of Beavercreek, OH. He left home at an early age to work in Newport News, Virginia to support his family after the untimely death of his father. Sidney willingly sacrificed much of his childhood to work in the shipyards, which ultimately led to his tragic demise decades later because of asbestos exposure. Like so many other men and women of the greatest generation, this patriot volunteered for military service after the outbreak of hostilities in World War II and proudly served as a radioman in the European Theatre of war. He moved to Dayton, OH after the war where he courted and married his wife Bonnie Smith of Celina, Tenn., and was employed at Delco Moraine, at that time the brakes and bearings division of General Motors. He was a longtime member of the Assembly of God and faithfully served the Lord as a jailhouse minister in Montgomery County. Sidney will be remembered as a selfless man who put the welfare of others before himself. He will be missed by those who loved him. A celebration of this man's memorable life will be held Friday, May 25, 2006 at 11:30 AM at the TOBIAS FUNERAL HOME-BEAVERCREEK CHAPEL, 3970 Dayton-Xenia Rd. at Grange Hall Rd. with Pastor Curt Johnson giving the eulogy and Pastor Tim Hamilton presiding over the funeral service. Burial will be at Byron Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home from 6-8 PM Thursday.

Stamper, Art -Fiddle player was native of Hindman-a seminal bluegrass fiddle player once described as a "giant of traditional mountain music," died Sunday night in Louisville after a four-year struggle with throat cancer. He was 71. A native of Hindman, Ky., and longtime resident of Shepherdsville, Stamper was considered a bluegrass pioneer by his peers. Among the many bands he performed with, the most notable were the Stanley Brothers, Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys, the Osborne Brothers and the Goins Brothers. Last year, Stamper received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association, joining the likes of Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt, Kenny Baker and Monroe. He is also a member of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame. His style emphasized melody and emotion over speed. "It's almost overwhelming to think about Art as being one of the first, but he was right there," said acclaimed mandolinist Sam Bush. "Art was from the first generation of fiddle players to combine old-time music and mountain fiddling with the blues that was part of bluegrass," Bush said. "By that, I mean he was bending the notes to mimic the way a person sings." Harry Bickel, a Louisville bluegrass musician and historian, teamed with Stamper on his final recording, "Wake Up Darlin' Corey," released late last year on Country Records. "You're never a hero in your own hometown, I guess, but Art was one of the first to record bluegrass music back when he was with the Stanley Brothers," Bickel said. "He grew up in that Eastern Kentucky tradition that a lot of fiddlers never got to witness." Stamper was born in 1933 in Hindman, in Knott County. His father, Hiram, was an accomplished old-time musician, and Stamper followed suit at age 9. He was a professional by age 16 and joined Ralph and Carter Stanley's band in 1952, just in time to help define a new genre of music eventually called bluegrass. "Art Stamper is a classic Kentucky fiddler and a giant in traditional mountain music and the bluegrass style that evolved from it," wrote musician and historian Eugene Chadbourne in the "All Music Guide." "When the..soundtrack for 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?' became a hit, there was speculation that the 'Art' in the title might be Art Stamper." Stamper retired from a full-time music career in 1956 to raise a family (his son, Blake, released a country album last year). He became a well-known hairdresser , winning several awards as owner of Louisville's The Way of Art. He never stopped performing, including between haircuts. "We used to have hair-cutting day at Art's shop," Bickel said. "All of the musicians would go out to Art's and play, taking turns getting our hair cut." Stamper returned to music full time in 1978, sitting in with a variety of bands, including Monroe's, and recording two highly regarded albums, "The Lost Fiddler" and "Goodbye Girls, I'm Going to Boston." The Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America named him best old-time fiddler three times, 1986-1988. He was also well known, Bush said, as an "entertainer on stage and a true character. Every jam session he was ever in, he was the biggest character on stage. It was easy to get him on a stage, but impossible to get him off." "He was a powerful musician, definitely one of the guys who wrote the book on old-time bluegrass fiddling," said Louisville's Steve Cooley, who performed with Stamper in the Goins Brothers band. "He's definitely one of those people who has to be considered a national treasure."

Still, James--About 300 people gathered yesterday to celebrate the life of James Still, the author and former Kentucky poet laureate who became the voice of Appalachia in his stories about the Eastern Kentucky mountains. Still, who died Saturday at 94, was buried at a handpicked spot on the grounds of the Hindman Settlement School after a two-hour memorial service. Mike Mullins, executive director of the settlement school, opened the service by explaining that Still asked that the day be filled with celebration, not sorrow. Seven people whose lives were touched by Still related anecdotes about the man whose literary achievements included ``River of Earth,'' a novel that shared the Southern Authors Award with Thomas Wolfe's ``You Can't Go Home Again'' in 1940. ``River of Earth'' tells the story of a family debating whether to remain at their Knott County home or to go to a nearby coal-mining camp, where better job opportunities exist. Wilma Dykeman, a novelist, Tennessee state historian and longtime friend of Still's, stressed the importance of home in many of his works. ``Thomas Wolfe said you can't go home again,'' Dykeman said. ``James Still said you can never leave home.''  A native of Alabama, Still moved to Eastern Kentucky in 1932 to take a job as a librarian at the Hindman Settlement School in Knott County. The journey came after Still found little use for three college degrees during the Depression. Still produced hundreds of short stories, poems and novels. `` `River of Earth' is one of a kind,'' James Baker Hall, the Kentucky poet laureate, said after the memorial service. ``The presentation of language that was spoken at the time is nowhere else. Each one of those remarks in quotes is a treasure.'' Thomas D. Clark, historian laureate and founder of the University Press of Kentucky, said he admired Still personally and professionally. ``He wrote very gently, very understanding,'' Clark said. ``He was the last of the old Southern writers.''  Carol Boggess, a professor at Mars Hill College in North Carolina, said Still combined the epic scope of John Steinbeck and the poetic voice of Robert Frost with the lifestyle of Henry David Thoreau. When Still left his log cabin in Knott County to serve as an Army staff sergeant in North Africa during World War II, he took one book with him - Thoreau's ``Walden.''  The beauty Still discovered in Eastern Kentucky inspired him to give his characters a strong appreciation for the land. Along with its compelling human drama, ``River of Earth'' also serves as a textbook for the flora, fauna and wildlife of Knott County. ``He cared a lot about what was happening here,'' said Jack Spadaro, a member of the federal team investigating last fall's coal-slurry spill in Martin County. Loyal Jones, chairman of the board at the Hindman Settlement School, said Still was ``his own best character,'' and Boggess agreed that Still's life and work are ultimately intertwined.  When Boggess visited Still in a hospital in Hazard shortly before his death, he was still eagerly jotting down phrases that caught his ear. Those paying tribute to Still spoke of a man who often craved privacy, but as friend Jim Bergman recalled, he was ``a recluse only part of the time.'' Herbie Smith, a filmmaker at Appalshop in Whitesburg, said Still was a mentor when he was a young man in the early 1970s. Still was generous with his time, and the two discussed art, wild strawberries and why Smith should cut his hair, the filmmaker said. Several speakers remarked that Still told them that the only thing he had not accomplished in his life was to climb Mount Everest. Still's adopted daughter, Teresa Perry Bradley of Hindman, fought back tears as she told of the warmth and compassion of the man she called ``Pappy.'' Still served as Bradley's benefactor and supported her through college. When Bradley's parents died, Still adopted her and made her his legal heir. Bradley recalled Still's fondness for one-liners, a type of humor he rarely utilized in his works. While in civil war-torn El Salvador about 30 years ago, Still found himself in a part of the country where fighting had flared. He fled to a nearby bar to avoid being caught in a crossfire. There, he dashed off a letter to his daughter with the words, ``drinking beer, dodging bullets.''  Still was Kentucky's poet laureate in 1995 and 1996. The University Press of Kentucky is scheduled to publish a collection of his poems in June called ``From the Mountain, From the Valley: New and Collected Poems.''  James Still, former Kentucky poet laureate, was buried at a handpicked spot at Hindman Settlement School. Still's adopted daughter, Teresa Perry Bradley, spoke at the service. Bob Saylor played taps at yesterday's service. James Still served in the Army in World War II.  Thomas D. Clark, Kentucky historian laureate, praised Still, calling him ``the last of the old Southern writers.''
