See Crossville's spooky side on Ghost Tour

CROSSVILLE — The Haunted Holiday is on the way, and Downtown Crossville, Inc. is again sponsoring their popular Ghost Tour of downtown Crossville, and it promises to be bigger and better than ever. The event takes place Oct. 20 from 6-8 p.m., with tours leaving the Native Stone Museum on the Courthouse Square every 15 minutes.

Volunteers will lead small groups to various locations where there will be storytellers to relate the legends of ghosts and goblins. An exciting special bonus this year will be the findings of Paranormal Travelers Michael and Cindy Wolski, who visited Crossville from Ohio this past August and investigated four different downtown buildings. They will share their film and recordings during the tours. Their website, http://websd-paranormaltravelingcom.webs.com/, describes suspected paranormal activity at the Military Museum downtown.

Students from SMHS will be participating in the event and additional volunteers for leading groups, storytelling, selling tickets and other duties are still needed.

Tickets for this fundraiser for Downtown Crossville, Inc. are $10 for adults and $5 for kids under 16. There is a $1 discount for advance purchase of tickets, which are available at the Depot or Native Stone Museum. For more information or to volunteer, call the DCI office at 787-1324 or Terri Curran at 465-6799.

  • 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.
