Lucas and Friends show sells out

CROSSVILLE — A special thank you goes out to Ruth and Wayne Lucas for a great job on the fourth annual Lucas and Friends Christmas Show. They certainly got a sold-out crowd in the Christmas mood. Everyone is hearing it gets better every year. This was the best one yet. It really was a good show. Thanks to all the talent and folks who bought the tickets. Maybe next year you will be lucky enough to get a ticket early.

Fair Park offers a lot of active programs, like the line dancers that were in a lot of the scenes in the Christmas show. They really added a lot of neat action. The Crossville Kickers (the Fair Park Line dancers) will be having a New Years Eve Dance and Party on Tuesday, Dec. 31. Of course, there will be a lot of line dancing going on, but also if you would like to waltz or do some two-stepping, everyone is welcome to join them to ring in the new year. Just bring some snacks to share and your favorite non-alcoholic drink. It is $5 per person. The party will start at 7 p.m. This group usually meets every Thursday night with dance Instructors Ann and her husband, Don Weaver. Elizabeth Haywood leads the class on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m.

This Friday, Dec. 27, Cowboy Wetwood Dalton will be entertaining the seniors with his fun songs and gentle humor. You are invited; be there by 9:45 a.m. Bingo will be furnished by the United Grocery Outlet and Anthony Woolbright.

The Fair Park Senior Center is a nonprofit 501(c) organization and always welcomes monetary donations to provide programs for seniors. The center will be closed Dec. 24, 25 and 26 for Christmas and for Jan 1.

The Fair Park Senior Center is at 1433 Livingston Rd., across from the fairgrounds. It is open to seniors Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with some evening classes. Check out the website to learn more at or call 484-7416.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
