'Majestic Montana' wraps up FFG Lions Travelogue season

CROSSVILLE — April 1 will conclude the Fairfield Glade Lions Club Travelogue and Adventure Series for the season. Speaker Steve Gonser will take you on a journey to “Majestic Montana” at the Palace Theater starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for $7 per person.

Montana is the fourth largest state in our union after Alaska, Texas and California. Its 147,000 square miles are still sparsely populated. Fewer than one million people live in the entire State. Cattle outnumber people three to one. Within its boundaries are two national parks, 10 national forests, seven Indian reservations, more than 40 state parks, nearly a dozen wilderness areas, more than 15 national refuges, dozens of state-owned wildlife areas and several national monuments and historical sites.

Montana has been a traveler’s destination for centuries. Indian hunting parties came to Montana and returned to their villages with stories of a land full of buffalo and holy sites. Today, people define Montana because they come from so many strains: immigrant farmers, sheepherders, Indians, miners, loggers, artists and ranchers. They are self-reliant, quick to see humor, with personalities so expansive that so few people really do fill the state.

Make plans now to join the journey to explore the majestic qualities that make Montana a special place. Find out why Montana is often referred to as the dinosaur country. Visit cities large and small. Learn about ranching at the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site. Participate in an Indian Powwow and experience Indian culture.

Trace the steps of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in Montana. Look for sapphires at the Spokane Bar Sapphire Mine. Investigate the myths, legends and reality of people who came west to help shape the future of this state. Take a tour through the “Gems of Montana” by visiting Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. All of these and more await you as you travel through the Big Sky Country of "Majestic Montana".

This may be the final Travelogue of 2012-'13 but a new series is being planned for 2013-'14, so watch for details in the papers.

  • 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.
