Senior Police Academy goes to Fairfield Glade

CROSSVILLE — The Fair Park Senior Center is bringing Fairfield Glade the next Senior Police Academy to their community. The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department and Fairfield Glade Security will be offering this eight-week, two-hour class each Wednesday to inform seniors of crime and law enforcement in the area. If you are interred by the mysteries and work evolved in solving a crime, you will really enjoy this. You will gain useful and interesting information of your rights.

Learn the why, when and what answers to better understand how the system works. They will be covering it all, from crime scenes to home invasion and the judicial system — search and seizures, criminal investigations, narcotics investigations, K-9 units, traffic enforcement, domestic violence, sexual assault, crime prevention, use of force, ID theft, defensive tactics, 911 operations and more.

For those who are interested, there will be a tour of the jail and the 911 communications center. At the completion of the class each will receive a certificate. It has been proven that the crime rate in the community goes down while the relationship between law enforcement and citizens has improved in areas where these types of classes are held.

The coordinator, Terry Burgess, is behind these special classes. He has worked extensively in law enforcement as a detective investigator and police advisor and in community training for more than 37 years from Camden, ME, to as far away as Thailand and to the Royal Police. He and his wife are currently retired and living in Fairfield Glade.

The sponsors for these special law enforcement classes are: Progressive Bank and Food City on Peavine Rd. (which will be providing the snacks). Hood Funeral Home and Crematory on 127 South is the sponsor for all the educational classes held for the Fair Park Senior Center. The first class is this Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the multi-purpose building at Druid Hills. A few spaces are available. Call Tina 484-7416 to sign up.


Everyone is invited to attend the Community Health Fair this week being sponsored by Cumberland Medical Center and Fair Park Senior Center. You will be able to learn more about how to have a gluten free diet, with dietician Linda Hassler and Dr. Robert Yatto, gastroenterologist. Doug Scarlett, former Air Force One chef for Nixon, will be demonstrating cooking. 

If you feel maybe you ought to have some health screenings done, this would be the perfect time. They will be doing many different kinds. Fasting is required for the cholesterol lipid profile and the complete chemistry profile. So you might want to plan to come early. Screenings will be from 7 until 10 a.m., but the health fair will last until 1 p.m. They will be accepting cash or credit card for payment. That is all happening this Thursday, Oct 11, at the Cumberland County Community Complex (fairgrounds) at 1398 Livingston Rd.

Come visit the Fair Park Senior Center. It is at 1433 Livingston Rd., across from the fairgrounds. Check out their website at or call 484-7416.

  • fair park.jpg Heritage demonstrators welcome

    Most of Americans today never stop to think how different our lives would have been several hundred years ago. How many times a day do we wash our hands, and do we ever realize when we take those hot showers and lather up, the long all-day process our ancestors had to go through just to make a bar of soap? Not to mention packing water to the house and heating it up over a wood fire just to have a bath and wash clothes. Times are changing faster than ever.

    At Burgess Falls, you can be out of your car and taking in the breathtaking view of the Falling Water River as it falls 136 feet in the third and final drop of the river with just a short walk through the woods.
