Enjoy a game of pool at Fair Park

CROSSVILLE — Are you a pool player? The seniors at the Fair Park Senior Center will be starting their 2013-2014 Winter Eight Ball Pool League this month.

The League is for men and women, for those committed to attending every week during the season. If you can not commit to every week, please sign up to be a sub. Rules established from BCA. It is established by the number of teams and will probably last until April or May 2014. Teams will be picked according to handicap Oct. 29 at 12:30 p.m. Dues are due at that time. For more information, call Mike Livingston at 788-6483.

Need a ride? If you are a senior age 60+ without transportation (no car), you can currently take advantage of the transportation voucher program. Fair Park Senior Center has joined up with the Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency’s Area Regional Transit Systems with the U Carts program. Seniors can get rides to the doctor's office, to get groceries, or visit the Fair Park Senior Center! You can schedule your plans according to zones, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. You will need to arrange your activities between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. To get your transportation voucher and learn more, contact Carolyn Barnes at the Fair Park Senior Center at 484-7416.

Ring your bells and sing Christmas songs with the Ring and Sing group! Chorus Director Faye Brandon is getting them ready for Christmas. It is a lot of fun every Wednesday from 2-3 p.m.

Saturday Night Country Dances have moved their time up a little to start every Saturday at 5 p.m. The Southern Pride Country Band and Tom Fincher are playing all your favorites country dance tunes, so plan to get out this Saturday evening and do some dancing! It is for all ages of adults. Every week there is a special guest, too. So get out and  have fun.

Whether it is to start exercising or just to play some cards, seniors in Cumberland County always have some place to go for things to do.

  • 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.
