FAIR PARK: 2nd annual Crossville’s Got Talent a big success

CROSSVILLE — Fundraisers really can be fun. The Palace Theatre was very close to being sold out. Fair Park Senior Center would like to thank everyone who helped to make the second Crossville’s Got Talent a really great show. The talent was wonderful. Everyone did their best and were all winners. There are a lot of talented people in the area. They had a lot of kids in the show this year and are making some plans and changes to make the next show even better.

Thanks go out to D.J. and Donna Garrison for giving the show a touch of Hollywood, the judges, Crossville Chronicle, Family Ties, Gateway, Peg Broadcasting’s WOW Country 102.5 and 99.3 and their great announcers, Ronnie, Panama Jack and Stace.  

The local Vietnam Veterans Chapter 1015 not only sponsored the show, but truly supported it. Several were there early and stayed late to help set up the stage, run spotlights and were stage hands. Thanks to Mike Nappes and his family, Sarge, Lou, Mike Matson and Cecil Smith. They were more than helpful and were greatly appreciated.

A special thank you goes out to Terry Ashburn and the whole Palace staff for their friendly helpfulness.

  • 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.
