Gun and Knife Show promises to be kid friendly

Looking for a family friendly activity this summer that the whole family will enjoy? Check out the third annual Cumberland County Gun and Knife Show at the Cumberland County Community Complex Saturday, Aug. 3, and Sunday, Aug. 4. Local businesses, national sponsors and law enforcement and fire prevention agencies will be on hand to entertain and educate kids of all ages.

Activities will include shooting simulators sponsored by the Tennessee National Guard and other hands-on skills opportunities like archery with the National Wildlife Turkey Federation. Come learn about turkey hunting with local experts. The Cumberland Mountain State Park will have an exhibition of "Birds of Prey" on Saturday afternoon.

Children of all ages can participate in the CASE Knives "Build a Wooden Knife" class in the Country Store. It will be taught at 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Pre-registration is recommended as space is limited.

Younger children can enjoy the Tennessee National Guard climbing wall. City and county fire trucks and firefighters will be on hand for kids to enjoy.

  • 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.
