CROSSVILLE — The 127 South Seniors met June 1 for bingo, dominos, coffee, sweets and conversation. Quality Health Care furnished the gifts, and Arlene Simmons and Wendell Lester called the numbers. Fred Zoeller, president, opened the regular meeting, with Annie Lewis giving the prayer and Leroy Hinkson leading the pledge to the flag.

Jan Neitzke gave the trips report. June 12 will be the next trip, which will be to Murfreesboro and Bell Buckle. July 10-12 will be to Helen, GA, with stops at Babyland General Hospital (Cabbage Patch Kids), Warm Springs and Callaway Gardens plus the shops at Helen. The August trip will be to Nashville's RCA Studio B and the Country Music Hall of Fame.

  • 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.
