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.

  • 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.

    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?

    Three and a half years ago, a local no-kill animal welfare organization known as A Time 4 Paws (AT4P) received an important email.
