The East Tennessee Senior Golf Association has asked the Fairfield Glade Representative to serve on this year's committee for the annual year end Championships Tournament. Pete Leitnaker has stepped forward and accepted the challenge. In the past 4 years, two of those events ended up being cancelled. Leitnaker wants to put in safeguards to keep that from happening in the future. Prior to that, and since 1971, only two were cancelled, due to heavy rains from a couple of hurricanes that swept the Carolina coast lines.

ABACUS COLUMN: Cold weather…grin and bear it
Most of the United States has experienced record breaking temperatures this January of 2014. For those without heat, proper protection, and the very young or elderly the cold is not welcome and could be life threatening. Those of us keeping warm and toasty need to be aware of those in need and respond in kind. For everyone, a sense of humor, frontier fortitude and survival instincts need to be applied. At least until our heating bills arrive in February and we are really numbed.
