Case to highlight RHA meeting

CROSSVILLE — “A voice that gives you goose bumps with its richness, power and clarity,” are among the plaudits given to Jim Case, a local entertainer, who will be the featured guest artist for the Fairfield Glade Resident Homeowners at their Feb. 24 meeting at Legends, starting at 6 p.m. A native of upstate New York, Case is a graduate of John Hopkins University. He retired from the federal government after 34 years of service and settled in Fairfield Glade in 2005.

Case, a lyric baritone, sings music of the ages, featuring ballads, show tunes, hits – old and new, time honored standards and sacred songs. Silver haired and silver-tongued, this ageless singer is simply amazing, noted Dick Wardenfelt from Westminister, MD. Peg Rowan, a New York theatre goer, said that Jim has a voice that equals the best of the greats. In May of 2009, he delighted the RHA audience in a very captivating way. You will not want to miss this concert!

This will be the second of seven programs that will be presented by RHA during 2014. Frank Saxton kicked off the season with a great saxophone show in January. In March, you will be honored to hear Dr. William Bass, noted forensic author at UT, who will tell us the story of the founding of the “Body Farm;” April you will hear a beautiful young lady from Chattanooga, Shani Hedden Palmer, singing great songs of Patsy Cline. After the summer lull, we will pick up in September with the charming voice of Weslie Webster from the Playhouse. Work is progressing yet on the October and November shows. All-in-all you will find this to be a wonderful year at RHA, but in order to do this we need you to sign up for memberships. Your dues money is all that we have to procure these programs, so please step up and join RHA for the low price of $12 per year. Residents who have never attended an RHA meeting – now would be a good time to come and check it out!

RHA is strictly a social event which provides an opportunity for you to meet your neighbors and keep up with the activities of the Community Club and, at the same time, enjoy some very fine entertainment.

Non-members can attend by paying a $6 entertainment fee plus the meal cost of $17 per person which includes tax and tip. If you follow your first meeting with another $6 fee, you will automatically become a member. The menu for this meeting will be roast beef w/red wine demi sauce, whipped potatoes, broccoli and carrots, chef’s salad and sweet selection.

To make reservations, call Carol Pontius at 484-3138, or email to keith.pontius@comcast.net If you do not get a confirmation back, please try again, or call to make sure your reservation was properly recorded. Your participation is greatly appreciated. Deadline for reservations is Thursday, Feb. 20. Note that if you make a reservation and do not attend, you are responsible for payment of the cost of the meal as RHA must guarantee the number of reservations on Feb. 20.

When making your reservations, you can make up your own table of six or eight, or you can just reserve for yourself and we will get you seated with a good group. If you do have a group you would like to sit with, please indicate that when making your reservations.

Men are requested to wear a jacket; ties are optional. Everyone is asked to wear a name badge to help everyone get acquainted. A name badge will be provided if you do not have one, or you will be able to buy a special RHA badge for $10. For easier reference for the treasurer, we ask that whenever possible, please write a check for your meals and/or entertainment.

  • 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.
