CWC giving thanks for 20-year anniversary

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland Plateau Christian Women's Connection luncheon will be a time of giving thanks for 20 years of enjoying fun, food, fellowship and sharing the love of Jesus with many area women. This celebration will be held Thursday, Nov. 15 at The Terrace family life center of Cumberland Fellowship Church, 1640 West Avenue, Crossville, TN.

The doors will open at 11:15 a.m., with the luncheon and program from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  The caterer, Forte's Restaurant will serve roasted pork loin, red potatoes, a vegetable medley, fall dessert and beverages. The heart smart alternative is grilled chicken breast with the same sides.  The cost is only $12, all inclusive.

Our featured musician and inspirational speaker will be Brenda Copeland of Bastrop, LA.  Brenda, who has a lovely contralto voice, will present a "mini concert" with songs that lead up to her topic titled "Walking on the Wild Side." She will share how she sent from walking on the wide side of life to taming the wild beast within her.

Brenda has been a Stonecroft Ministries speaker since 1997. She and her husband of 33 years, Kelvin, have an adult daughter and son-in-love, two wonderful grandchildren and a four-legged, 75-pound 'son' named Jake.

She is a former Miss America contestant, an accomplished gospel music recording artist with 11 albums and a DVD to her credit, and will have some of them with her for purchase at the luncheon. As a cancer survivor and former drug and alcohol abuser who has dealt with spousal abuse and an emotional breakdown, Brenda can identify with and encourage women facing similar situations today.

Reservations are needed by Saturday, Nov. 10, at noon. Call Carolyn at 931-484-9556 or email bswomensconnection@gmail.com .

Christian Women's Connection, Prayer Connection, and Christian Women's Bible Study are all affiliated with Stonecroft Ministries. For more information on Prayer Connection call Sharon at 931 456-0634, and for Bible Study locations call Cynthia at 931 456-1225.

CWC will not be having activities during December, January and possibly February 2013; be watching this local paper for more information on our next scheduled events.

  • County residents urged to vote

    Cumberland County has around 39,000 registered voters, as well as a strong reputation for voter participation.  However, as of press time on Tuesday, only 4,300 residents had taken advantage of early voting for the Aug. 7 primary and general elections. Local officials are predicting less than 50 percent of registered voters will cast their vote in the 14 days of early voting, plus election day. Only 23 percent of registered county voters participated in the May elections.

  • Naiad Kuhlman.jpg Senior olympian on the run for good health

    No one can get away with telling Naiad Kuhlman of Crossville that age is a barrier to exercise. The avid runner, personal trainer and instructor at Cumberland Medical Center’s Wellness Complex at Fairfield Glade won’t buy the excuse.

  • Enjoying nature.jpg Get your mink coat on the road

    It is interesting what animals you see crossing the roads sometimes. When animals cross roads, you can get a look at them, that wouldn't be possible if they stayed inside the cover of trees or grass. Sometimes, it is just a fleeting glance and you aren't sure what you saw. When you go into the woods looking for animals, they usually hide or leave the area before you even know they are around. But, roads are wide open with no cover. Also, most mammals are nocturnal, so they are out when we aren't. Anytime that I am on a two-lane road at night, I am always watching intently for wildlife in the headlights.

  • Abacus Column: Tennessee the third most corrupt state in the U.S.?

    According to a recent article in Time magazine, Tennessee is ranked third among U.S. States in political corruption. I am not sure how they measure such crime in order to make such a charge. Does some purveyor of statistics identify the number of elected officials proved guilty in a court of law; or merely charged with corruption?

  • A Time 4 Paws celebrates pet adoption after 3 1/2 years

    Three and a half years ago, a local no-kill animal welfare organization known as A Time 4 Paws (AT4P) received an important email. A Nashville animal shelter volunteer asked if AT4P could take two severely abused English Pointer mixes. The email said they didn't want to take back two dogs they had placed in foster care for fear they would have to kill them.
