On occasion, we here at Dallas-Hiram Patch venture onto YouTube to find videos of local relevance. A recent video that caught our eye was one uploaded by YouTube user pingdis on Dec. 2. The clip shows what appears to be a small gold nugget in a Paulding County creek. As of early Thursday, the video (which is attached to this article) had 46 views. Do you have a recent YouTube video that’s worth featuring on Dallas-Hiram Patch? Send an email to email@example.com and tell us more. We’re not sure if the tiny, shiny rock is enough to bring prospectors in to start the “Great Paulding County Gold Rush of 2012,” and the video does not specify exactly where it was found. But if you’re up for taking up panning in Paulding’s bodies of water, more…

The Jimmy Dean Band performed last week at a Hiram restaurant. Give them a listen.
On occasion, we here at Dallas-Hiram Patch venture onto YouTube to find videos of local relevance. Two videos that caught our eye were these performances by The Jimmy Dean Band at Buds Sports Bar & Grill in Hiram. Hear the band cover The Allman Brothers Band's “One Way Out” and Eric Clapton’s “Before You Accuse Me” in the attached videos. Do you have a band that’s performing in Dallas or Hiram, or is your band from Paulding County? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us more. The two videos, which were posted Sunday, had 18 and 14 views as of early Wednesday—let’s see if Dallas-Hiram Patch readers can boost those numbers. We’ll try to keep an eye on Youtube for videos filmed by or starring locals. If you see any interesting ones…

Who on TV can children look up to? Are there any television shows that can give children a good education? Tell us what you think.
At 31 years old, I can say that I still watch Mister Rogers’. OK—admittedly, I don’t really still watch Mister Rogers’. I think I can safely say it’s been at least two decades since I watched an episode. But I recently saw him on my screen, and since then, I’ve shared him with not just my 6-year-old nephew, but also many of my adult friends. This instance wasn’t a rerun on PBS, but rather, a clip on YouTube. The “Mister Rogers Remixed” video titled “Garden of Your Mind” was published on YouTube on June 7, and as of just after midnight today, it was approaching five million views. If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth a look, no matter if you’re young or if you’re old enough, like I am, to have grown up with Rogers’ program. And it definitely …

Thank you to Shana Bishop's grandfather, Bobby Ayers, for sending Patch these videos of the talented up-and-comer.
The above video is of 13-year-old Shana Bishop of Dallas singing "Turn on the Radio" by Reba McEntire at the Powder Springs Coffee and Bake Shoppe's Open Mic Night in April. Bishop's grandfather, Bobby Ayers of Smyrna, says she's now performing with the Kurt Thomas Band. "Kurt was kind enough to take her under his wings and give her some stage time with the band since he said she is a natural born musician," Ayers told Patch. In the other video, Bishop sings Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" with the band at Center Stage in Atlanta. Have a talented youngster in the family? Are you talented yourself? Direct us to your clips on YouTube or send your videos to email@example.com.
