The Stars are coming out for FGRS

CROSSVILLE — Once again, Brian Bacon and a group of local stars are helping to benefit Fairfield Glade Resident Services (FGRS) by presenting a benefit concert on April 18 at the Community and Conference Center in Fairfield Glade. Last year’s concert was sold out as Bacon’s merry band of pirates presented “The Pirates of Penzance.” This year, Bacon has chosen Stephen Sondheim’s Broadway musical revue entitled “Putting it Together” for your enjoyment. “Putting It Together" showcases the many songs and talents of Stephen Sondheim. Opening in England in 1992, and first preformed in America in 1993, “Putting It Together” deals with infidelity and divorce but ends in reconciliation before the night is over. On Broadway, you may remember that this revue starred the return of Julia Andrews to the New York stage after more than 30 years. In the California production, Carol Burnett played the lead role that ran for more than 120 performances.

Now, “Putting It Together” comes to Fairfield Glade with an all star cast of Terri Utsey, Dennis Donald, along with Brian and Amanda Bacon. Utsey has become a favorite in Middle Tennessee for her beautiful voice and charming presence on stage. We all are aware of the talent of Donald, who has entertained us for years at many venues and in many roles. Bacon has become the go to musical director and vocalist of Fairfield Glade. Being the director of the Festival Chorale, the Cumberland County Band, and director of music at St. Francis of Assisi Church, his popularity is forever growing. Who could ever forget the beautiful voice of Amanda Bacon that we were treated to in last year’s production of the “Pirates of Penzance.” “Putting It Together will surely be a production to remember. So get your tickets early before they are all gone. One performance only, 7 p.m. on April 18 at the Community and Conference Center in Fairfield Glade. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are on sale and can be obtained at the offices of FGRS on Peavine, the Community and Conference Center, the Good Samaritan Campus of Fairfield Glade, or from any FGRS Board member. Price of the tickets is $15 with all proceeds going to benefit the many programs FGRS runs to aid the  community with human and social services. Make your plans now. Get a group together and come enjoy an evening of fine 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.

  • 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.
