If you have never attended an RHA meeting you do not have to join at this first meeting, but can do so at the next meeting on Feb. 25.

A Heart Smart meal is also available for those who wish to keep their diet in balance for the start of the year. You can also make up your own table of six or eight, or you can designate people you would like to sit with.

Future programs will include: Terri Utsey, Rockwood, who has built quite a reputation in the music world in Cumberland County; Terry Henderson from Lima, Ohio, another who needs no introduction to the area; Patrice Puglise who began her career in 1971 as a performer with the Country Gems in Texas; Keith Walther, publisher and editor of the Glade Vista, a surprise performer who you will greatly enjoy; Taylor Ware, a 17 year-old from Brentwood who will be returning for the third time; Jason Sanders, a new find, a talented musician/singer/songwriter from Carthage; and Aaron Wilbourn, musician/singer/songwriter, who formerly traveled with the Gaithers, plus two to be added.

  • Tracking tracks.jpg Tracking down old tracks

    It is perceived that the lumber business was profitable and extensive throughout the entire area of the current Glade and along much of the path of the described rail from the Glade all the way to Dorton. While our previous reports detailed much about the track of the Cumberland Northern, most of the reported discovery was north of Peavine and east of the four-way stop near the new Wyndham reception center (and east toward Antioch).

  • Friends group plans Elbe River cruise

    Our “Friends Traveling Together” group at Fairfield Glade was eagerly anticipating a Russia river cruise with a pre-trip to Ukraine this summer. World events, as it sometimes happens, caused us to rethink those plans. Undeterred, however, we will be embarking instead on an Elbe River cruise from Berlin, Germany to Prague on Aug. 10-22.

  • Abacus Column: Rooting for the prodigal daughter's success

    Around June of 2006, I wrote an article for the Chronicle and Glade Sun entitled, “Tonya Hinch: A Prodigal Daughter Returns to Crossville." I had been requested to meet and write about Tonya by a friend and local writer. “Why me,” I asked; “You are a good writer.” “Maybe so,” he replied; “but I don’t speak business, you do.”

  • Enjoying Nature.jpg Enjoying Nature: Keeping up with the bluebirds

    There may not be a prettier bird than our Eastern Bluebird, Sialia sialis, (pronounced cee-AL-ee-a cee-AL-iss). Bluebirds stay here in Tennessee all year, and, in the winter, you will often see groups of five or six at a time coming to your suet or mealworm feeder. But this time of year, you'll generally only see two at a time, because once a pair establishes a territory, they will chase off all potential rivals.
