Regina will be assisted on the piano by Rebecca Gentry, who is also known widely in the area.

You can see her hard at work at her Café’ on Peavine Road, and hear her perform the first Friday of each month at her dinner shows with area performers.

Another highlight of the evening will be the unveiling of the 2012 Glade Citizen of the year. Started in 2008 by President Keith Pontius, this will be the fifth recipient, recognizing one that contributed much to the community. Previous citizens recognized were Larry and June Frazier, Bill and Betty Johnson, Joan Paton, and Lloyd and Ann Tripp.

President Randy Budd will be handing over the gavel to the 2013 President Dennis Donald. Other officers to be installed are Diane Donald, first vp; Carol Pontius, treasurer; chaplain, Dick Gillen; Caring and Sharing – Sally Winston; 50-50 Chair, Suzanne Williams; Name Badge, Jane Scott; and publicity, Keith Pontius. Volunteers are still being sought for secretary and third vp and help will be greatly appreciated.

As we close out a wonderful 2012 season, it is also necessary for us to urge everyone (all residents are eligible) to either renew their membership for 2013, or sign up for the first time. President-elect Donald has a great lineup of entertainers already booked for 2013, opening in January with the very popular Brian Bacon, music director of the St. Francis of Assisi Choir and conductor of the Cumberland County Community Band. Others to perform are Terri Utsey, a noted young singer from the area, Patrice Puglise, Terry Henderson, and 17-year-old Taylor Ware, a great yodeler who performed here five years ago and now has an entirely new act to share with us.

2013 will be the 40th year for RHA, the oldest organization in the Glade, organized specifically to afford a time for residents to fellowship with their neighbors, keep up with Community Club actions, and enjoy a wonderful meal and entertainment.

Dues for 2013 will be $12 per member, but if you sign up before Dec. 31, your cost will only be $10. You can also sign up by mailing your check to Box 2017, Fairfield Glade, TN 38558. Note that RHA meets the fourth Monday of each month, except May and December. Menu for Nov. 26 is grilled ham steak and all the fixings.

It is requested that you pay your meals by check. Men are requested to wear jackets, but it is not mandatory, and everyone is asked to wear a name badge so others can learn to know you.

A social Hour begins at 5 p.m. and dinner is at 6 p.m.

  • 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?
