FOL to host CCP development director Feb. 7

CROSSVILLE — Attendees are in for a treat at the Thursday, Feb. 7, Friends of the Library (FOL) monthly meeting. Plan to arrive early during the social hour from 9 to 10 a.m. for coffee and delicious starter snacks. Our guest speaker will be Dr. John White, newly appointed director of development for the Cumberland County Playhouse.

The Playhouse, in preparing for its Golden Anniversary Era (2013-2015), has added the multi-talented Dr. White to team with the Playhouse board and staff in a multi-year effort of fundraising and anniversary events. The anniversary proceedings will celebrate the people and events that led to the founding of the Playhouse (August 1963 to July 1965). FOL attendees will see a rare film presented by Dr. White of Paul Crabtree, founder of the Playhouse. You will not want to miss this film. There will also be selected entertainment vignettes from upcoming Playhouse productions performed by featured artists.

Dr. White is a Columbia, TN native with extensive experience in university fundraising having served as vice president of Troy University and various funding roles at Auburn, University of Maryland, and UT Chattanooga. He is an avid outdoorsman, writer and filmmaker. He recently completed a documentary film with Dr. Mike Birdwell of Tennessee Tech exploring the making of Warner Brothers 1941 Academy Award winning film, Sergeant York. You cannot do better than this: free snacks and coffee, the spacious Cumberland Room of one of the best libraries in Tennessee, talented professional entertainment, and a unique local historical film and presentation; enough said.

  • 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.
