All the clicks that are fit to hit
We're always sending you to Web sites other than ours, because there's a lot of cool stuff out there. But we shouldn't always do that. There's a lot of fascinating stuff on roanoke.com.
One piece that has kept people's interest over the past couple of years features young Arielle Rosmarino, who made it to the finals of NBC's bubble-blowing contest. Watch her whip up some massive gum bubbles in this clip, shot by The Roanoke Times Josh Meltzer, in summer 2004.
Speaking of Meltzer, he was with reporter Jay Conley on a visit to Brunswick Correctional Center in Lawrenceville, where Jens Soering is serving two life terms for the murder of his then-girlfriend's parents in eastern Bedford County. Watch Soering's fascinating account of his two decades behind bars and his rear-view lens of what happened to him, Elizabeth Haysom and Haysom's family. Read the story.
The Roanoke Times photographers have turned in a lot of cool multimedia stuff. Check them out.
Now back to the world outside this part of the Web. If you haven't heard this act yet, check out the John Butler Trio. Butler can whip up on a guitar, and his band is smoking, too.
