Palmer to entertain at RHA April 28

CROSSVILLE — Cast in the lead role for the program of the Fairfield Glade Resident Homeowners Association on April 28 will be Shani Hedden Palmer from Hixson, TN presenting A Tribute to Patsy Cline at The Legends, starting at 6 p.m.  Shani played the role of Patsy Cline in Ted Swindley’s blockbuster musical “Always … Patsy Cline” at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre to rave revues, a revival, a tour, and sold out crowds. In addition, she has worked with such music industry notables as Keith Harling (MCA Nashville), Kim Forester (The Forester Sisters), Dennis Britt (co-writer for The Mavericks, EMI Nashville), Byron Sutton (Dolly Parton, Ricky Scraggs) and many more.

In addition, Shani was among the top 10 vocalists out of 3,000 plus vocalists at the 2004 International Modeling and Talent showcase in Los Angeles, CA. She has a successful alternative country and blues band called “Shani Palmer & The Lowdown” with her husband, electric bassist Kenny Palmer, who has been playing successfully all over the Southeast for more than 12 years.  Shani performs solo shows in tribute to Patsy Cline as well, to continue the legacy of Patsy Cline’s legendary music.

This is a program that you will not want to miss and we encourage you to invite your neighbors to attend with you. If you are not an RHA member, you can still attend by paying an entertainment fee of $6, plus $17 for the meal, which includes tax and tip. Yearly dues are $12 but if you attend any of the other three upcoming programs for $6 you will automatically become a member of RHA.

LeConte Jug Band that will feature a band of five lively gentlemen who will keep you on the edge of your seat. The November show has not been contracted yet, but you can rest assure that it will be great as we close out the year of 2014.

  • 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?
