One “H” stands for high-tech

The Jefferson County 4-H organization near Port Townsend has a new Podcast Video Blogging Club where members can post information from their most recent endeavors.

The blog, called 4-H News at 4-hnews.blogspot.com, produced video coverage of the 2006 American Red Cross Olympic Peninsula Chapter disaster training exercise held last week at Washington State University Extension in Port Hadlock.

Daniel Bryant, a 4-H News reporter, interviewed David Stanko, the Red Cross Olympic Peninsula’s chapter spokesman, about the drill that simulated emergency response if there was a massive fire that burned down 50 homes in the nearby community of Irondale.

The 13-year-old correspondent then edited the coverage using an Apple Computer program and published the three-minute piece on YouTube, a free video sharing Web community.

The club lists technology, animal husbandry, home arts, expressive arts, leadership, nature and sports as their current projects.

Who knew one of the 4-H’s stood for high-tech?
