Roses and thorns


A rose to the five Columbus High
students who have volunteered to men-
tor elementary school students through
the Columbus Municipal School
District’s PALS (partners in active
learning and support) program. Each
Monday through Thursday, the high school students
– all of whom have met their requirements for grad-
uation as dual enrollment students – spend their after-
noon working with the elementary school children.
We predict the program, which started Monday, will
be a huge success. While kids may tune out adults,
they always seem to look up to older “kids.” The CHS
students are not only providing mentoring, they also
serve as excellent role models. We salute these stu-
dents for their own hard work and for their generosity
in helping these younger students.

ordinance is misguided, but we do believe there are
two sides of this story. While the group that advo-

Completing
the circuit
Curiosity — and a desert — lead to innovation
from an engineer with a musician’s ear
BY JAN SWOOPE
jswoope@cdispatch.com

F
or J.C. Long, early tutelage in
electronics came as a kid, from
his dad. But it was at a mili-
tary post 6,800 miles away from his
Mississippi home years later that he
almost stumbled across what he was
meant to do in life. It took a while for
him to realize it.
“After wandering around the
world, going into the Army and ex-
ploring every other direction, I ended
up following in my dad’s footsteps,”
said the electrical engineer who lives
and works in Starkville. “It’s absolute-
ly a family tradition, but I chose the
hard way. It took a long time.”
Today, the 40-year-old works at
Camgian, a company building intel-
ligent sensing applications powered
by advanced technologies in edge
computing and artificial intelligence.
Long is also a musician, innovator
and co-founding partner in a start-
up called Amped Innovations LLC.
He has created a special harmonics
extender boost pedal for electric gui-
tar players and has in development a
tube amp tuner for electric guitars.
While these products are for the
music industry, Amped Innovations’
ultimate mission is designing and
producing new products and engi-
neering solutions for a wide range of
industries.
It may not have happened if Long
hadn’t packed along a guitar and am-
plifier with him to a hot, dusty desert
in Iraq in the mid-2000s.

Getting there
Long moved to Columbus from De
Queen, Arkansas, in 1989, when his
dad began working at Weyerhaeus-
er’s Lowndes County facility. Long’s
father and grandfather were both in
electronics; both got their starts in
the Navy.
After graduating from Columbus
High School in 1997, Long headed to
Pepperdine University in California,
about as far from Mississippi as he
could get at the time.
“I knew very clearly that if I went
to Mississippi State then, I would do
engineering; I was good at math and
science ... but I also knew that to be
well-rounded was important to me,”
he said. “I wanted to gain some more
exposure in other areas.”
Time and circumstance eventu-
ally brought him back to Columbus,
where his mother oversaw the Colum-
bus High Career Center. Through
a visiting military recruiter there,
Long — a guitarist and drummer
— heard about the Army Band. He Photo by Steven Perkins
successfully auditioned for the band J.C. Long tests a 1967 Fender Bassman amplifier in late January at his home in Starkville. The electrical engi-

2003, became a member of the armed on innumerable recordings and is quite literally the grandfather of rock and roll,” Long said. “Many amplifiers
forces. trace their lineage to this one.”

You’re in the Army now


“I found myself in northern Iraq in 2005,” Long said, looking
back on a life-shaping period. The soldier/musician experience
was, he admitted, “a little like oil and water.” One day he’d be
patrolling perimeter fence at the large military installation. The
next, he would be on rotation to play for troops. That meant
loading up cases of instruments — and rifles and ammunition.
“We were armed to the teeth, musically and militarily,” Long
said with a wry grin. “We traveled by helicopter to outposts
where they didn’t really have much of anything in the way of
diversion and put on a show that was mostly rock and roll and
country.”
In Iraq, downtime for some meant writing letters or playing
video games, anything to take their minds off of where they
were for a while.
“But I didn’t bring a video game console,” Long said. “I’d
lined up a nice amp and nice guitar (to take), and I’d get them
out and was learning how to record music. I’d get my little lap-
top out and hook everything up, and away I would go.”
It was while deployed that Long began to wonder about
