It is here that I write about my closest friends and acquaintances, some deceased and some still with us, who have achieved some degree of $%&#&'()*+ fame. Over the #()*+,-". years, I have shared my memories of these friends with you, the reader. Sometimes, depending on the situation surrounding their death, I am melancholy when writing the column. That is how I feel today as I prepare to carefully choose my words to tell you about my close friend and Christian brother, Ken Scarbrough. There is no easy way to explain it. Ken and I shared a common bond of friendship that ran deep. Even though we only met about 24 years ago, I felt as though I had known him my entire life. We had a lot in common, but it was more than that, I loved Ken like a

father or an older brother. We had a thousand 5-minute conversations, always taking time after church services to chat as we made our way to the door. Often we lagged behind Ken Scarbrough our wives, as we tried to cram a few extra subjects into our talks. We visited in his home, and he in ours. He and his wife Rose Mary accompanied our family up to Dale Hollow once on a houseboat trip. Our conversations could go slow, we had no where to go. We were both avid sportsmen. He loved gardening and so did I. Of course, he was a loyal follower of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Orange,â&#x20AC;? and he had been a season ticket holder since 1948 and even went on the road to watch the Vols. He gave me a Commemorative Book once, that chronicled the 2001 National Championship Season. You see, Ken lived a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wonderful Life.â&#x20AC;? He and Rose Mary had four daughters and a son. Ken was a native of Crossville and his parents were original Homesteaders (James and Beulah Walls Scarbrough). After high school, he moved to the Chattanooga area where he had a great career with J.I. Brown Tree Experts, Inc. He worked as an Arborist and later in accounting. He retired from that job and came back to Crossville, moving back into his childhood home, a Homestead House on Sawmill Road. He lived there until his death on April 13, 2012. He died from complications resulting from pneumonia, following surgery. I was caught off guard. I did not know he was that sick. He was a young 82. Kenny Scarbrough met his wifeto-be, Rose Mary, at the Varsity DriveIn in South Pittsburgh, Tennessee.

They were both trying to play a song on the same small, table-side juke box. He was 20 and Rose was 18. They became the parents to son Kenny Jr., daughters Becky, Lindy, Cathy, and Penny. The children grew up in both Crossville and Chattanooga. My wife, Natalie, who Ken in high school. is a Crossvillian, knew the family as they visited often, where they attended the same church when here. Retirement brought them back for good in 1988. The children and grandchildren continued to visit. Ken had a big heart. He cared about people. I want to tell you about two projects he threw himself into. In 1998, he helped to start a weekly Prayer Class, meeting at the Main Street Church of Christ building every Tuesday morning at the same time, to pray for people in need of prayer and to send out cards to the sick. I have been the recipient of some of those cards over the years, and it meant a lot to me to know that people were praying for my recovery from illness or surgery. They signed and sent out thousands of cards. This might not impress you, but it did me. Every Tuesday morning at the same time and the same place for 14 years. That is dedication and putting others first. Ken also cared about the Homesteads. He spent two years on a project that resulted in identifying all the original Homesteaders and documenting their existence for the Homestead Tower Association. You can go there and see the results of his work,

36 holes. The total available purse for professionals in the Open is $25,000, with the low pro receiving a first place check for $5,000. The champion receives a crystal award and their name engraved on the Women’s Open trophy, while the low amateur receives a crystal award. The top 10 low amateurs receive medals. Stonehenge will present a solid challenge to the field as the 6,549 yard, par 72 layout, has a reputation not only as one of Tennessee’s most beautiful courses, but also as one of the toughest. Opened in 1986, Stonehenge Golf Club existed as a public golf course, located in the center of Fairfield Glade. Immediately after it opened, Golf Digest called it the top new resort golf course in the country, with its bent grass tees, fairways and greens making it different from any golf course in the world. Over the years, Stonehenge maintained it’s reputation, being named the state’s top public course year after year until it’s sale to Fairfield Glade Community Club last year. The Tennessee Women’s Open has grown over the years to the point where it attracts players from all over the country. Past tournaments drew players from 15 states and two foreign countries. One former champ is Marci Turner, the two-time All-SEC, All-America golfer at the University of Tennessee (2005-2007). She shot a 220 (+4) to

take home the first place money last year as the low professional. Turner is now the assistant golf coach at the University of Tennessee. Another former player, Brooke Pancake, made a four foot putt on the 18th hole last week, to secure the NCAA National Championship for the University of Alabama. The Championship Chairman will be Jean St. Charles. Dori Webb, who served as the Director of Women’s Golf for the TGA and was very visible in this event for several years, now works for the Golf Foundation. Her replacement is Tracy Parsons. The TGA will work with FGCC Golf Director Steve Kraft and Stonehenge Head Pro Warren Huddleston on all details as they relate to the championship including: course set-up, recruitment of rules officials, pace of play, hole location sheet, starting times and groupings, results, acceptance of entry applications, course marking, tents, tables, starter boxes, scoreboard posters, signage, etc.

More Sad News Talley Ridley dies

A couple months ago I learned that Crossville Ford Sales Manager Talley Ridley was sick and would be going into the hospital for kidney surgery. I saw him several times and he talked about his impending surgery, never acting the bit least nervous. Talley had his surgery, but never recovered, being put on life support. The news of the seriousness of his condition caught me off guard. I just never thought it would come to this. Talley Ridley died from complications of his surgery. He was 57. Talley passed away on Thursday, April 19. He is survived by his wife Janet Ridley; one daughter, Jennifer Headrick (Daniel), brother, Gregg (Becky) and sister, Sherry, two grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Talley lived in Knoxville, but stayed in Crossville a few days of each week he worked. I have known Talley for several years and have bought a couple vehicles from him. He was a very likeable man and I always enjoyed visiting with him, whether I was there to sell him an ad, or for him to try to sell me a car. If you spent any time around him at all, you would soon know how much family meant to him. I was there once when his daughter came in with one of his grand-daughters. I know that all grandpaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love their

grands, but you could see a special bond there. She was only about 4 years old (a guess), and she was in his lap in nothing flat. I knew there would be no talking to Talley that day. I know Pat Copeland and the rest of the Crossville Ford crew will miss him, as I will.

The first annual Meadow Park Lake Waterfest & Family Fun Day will be held on Saturday, July 7th, from noon until 4 p.m. “There will be activities for every age,” Marlene Potter, Meadlow Park Manager said.“We are planning several different kinds of boat races utilizing canoes, small boats and kayaks. The boat races will be team events, and we are hoping to pair up fathers and mothers with sons or daughters.” Obed Watershed (OWCA) is on the forefront of this event.“Promoting watersports is a way to get people to appreciate and commit to water quality in our streams and rivers,” said Dennis Gregg of OWCA.“That is the core of OWCA’s mission.” There will be numerous booths and educational nature exhibits. Plans are underway for “water wars” for the kids who don’t mind getting wet. Merrimack Canoe of Crossville will be on hand with some of their locally-made canoes for people to try out. There is no usage fee for the day and there will be prizes in the canoe races.“It’s all about fun on this day,” Potter added.

“We want people to come out and enjoy our beautiful city lake.” In addition to canoes and kayaks, there will be group nature tours of the lake on pontoon boats with narrators. Meadow Park Lake is home to Bald Eagles which are seen on a regular basis. If you take this tour, perhaps you will see this great bird. If you or your children would like to experience the joy of “getting on the water,” there will be ample ways to accomplish this. Canoes and Kayaks with instructors will be present. This event is to help the novice become more comfortable on the water. In addition to “how to,” boaters will get instruction in safety. All boaters will wear life jackets. The City Fire Department will be on site talking about fire education. The Cumberland County Rescue Squad will be present to monitor the day’s activities, and

the State Park’s traveling nature display and fish exhibit will be there. Smith’s Wild Animal Control will be there with their mascot,“Toby the Turtle.” There will be ample food and soft drinks available as Clark Annis will provide the pulled pork and hot dogs for sale, plus Mayfield will be giving away mini ice cream sandwiches. There will be displays and booths for native species and animals found in this region of lakes and creeks. The City-owned Meadow Park Lake covers about 300 acres, and will become larger as work now under way will make the dam taller, causing the lake to expand. There is an abundance of wildlife living in and around the lake.“We have Beavers, Water Otters and even a Bald Eagle living around Meadow Park,” Mrs. Potter added. “The beavers can be quite destructive on our trees, but we feel like they are under control. We also have a big population of water otters,” she said.“They make a mess around the shore and eat a lot of our fish, but people like to watch them.” So make plans today to bring your whole family out to the Waterfest and Family Fun Day at Meadow Park Lake (City Lake) just off south Lantana Road. That date is Sat. July 7th beginning at 12 noon. For more information, call volunteer June Zettelmeyer at 788-5022.

Some of the drawings are in soft mud, a thin layer of clay sediment left there during long ago floods and maintained by the cave’s unchanging temperature and humidity. Some of the caves contain white lines etched into limestone. After being studied with carbondating charcoal from halfburned slivers of cane, the dates vary from eight hundred years old (belonging to the Mississippian people) to

older, around 4000 B.C. (6,000 years ago!) Today there are more than seventy known darkzone cave sites east of the Mississippi, but the bulk lie in Middle Tennessee. Of those, the greater number are on the Cumberland Plateau, which is full of various sized caves. Most of the caves are Unnamed (as in Twelfth Unnamed) to protect their locations. The pictographs often contain woodpeckers at the beginning and end of a sequence, other box-bodied birds, human-like figures, paddle-handed creatures with long wavy arms. Interestingly in some caves there are no images of weapons or violence.

At The Palace Theatre

We are fortunate to have several events happening in Cumberland County that involve information about the caves. At the Palace Theatre,

Tuesday June 26, 5:00 pm reception, 6:00 pm presentation by Jan F. Simek, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Although this presentation is sponsored by the City of Crossville, Crossville Chronicle, and Peg Broadcasting, available at no cost to the audience, tickets may be obtained in advance at the Palace Theatre, the Shanks Center for the Arts, Cumberland Eye Centers (Galloway) FFG, and First National Bank FFG. An extensive, premier exhibit of enlarged photographs is scheduled Thursday July 5 through Friday August 31 at the Shanks Center for the Arts, Crossville. The photographs are by Alan Cressler and demonstrates the skills necessary to take photographs inside a totally dark cave. Watch for more information about the June 26 presentation at the Palace and the two-month exhibit of photographs at the Shanks Center. Perhaps there will be other events surrounding this unusual history so near to our feet.

The celebration

started with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Attendees enjoyed a guided tour of the site. For more than a year many dedicated volunteers with the Obed Watershed Community Association (OWCA) have worked fervently at Centennial Park making remarkable improvements to three storm water drainage areas that flow into a creek

that is tributary to the Obed River. These measures will help slow the runoff from the roads, parking lots, and commercial areas surrounding Centennial Park and significantly improve the biological integrity of the streams. “Great partnerships make great things happen”, said Crossville Mayor J.

H. Graham, III. “I’m very proud of these organizations and their willingness to provide Crossville with their expertise and advice”. Mayor Graham was awarded the 2011 Water Conservationist of the Year by the Tennessee Wildlife Federation and mentioned the work by these partners on the Centennial Park project.

FACED WITH THE DILEMMA OF CARING FOR YOUR PARENTS? Did you know that Long-Term Care Insurance can cover Nursing Home, Home Health Care, Assisted Living and Adult Day Care? LongTerm Care Insurance could be the answer to how you are going to care for your parents when they are unable to perform everyday tasks, commonly referred to as "Activities of Daily Living," (ADL). Americans are living longer and the longer they live, the more likely they will need assistance due to chronic conditions. This type of assistance is commonly referred to as "Long-Term Care."

Set in rural Kentucky in the 1940s, this tender, moving play follows married couple May and Raleigh during the final months of World War II. When victory overseas brings unexpected consequences at home, the young couple is forced to find common solutions to the challenges of a new post-war America. May, more interested in a career than in housework, became a school principal during the war but has to return to the classroom when the men whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been fighting overseas return and resume the jobs they left behind. And Raleigh, discharged from the service early and denied a chance at combat because of his medical history, discovers that missing this defining event of his time is the greatest hindrance to his evolving career as a writer. At its heart, See Rock City is a funny, touching and universal portrayal of a young couple very much in love. The New York Times praised playwright Arlene Huttonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;a portrait of a marriage...a look at the mid-20th centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shifting cultural landscape.

According to Express, the most immediate threats are the inability to innovate, losing a competitive advantage, the high cost of reckless hiring, poor leadership and communication, and regulatory nightmares. “The shift in employment caused by the Great Recession has led to a shortage of talented employees,” Perry said.“Since the economy has started to improve, workers have been looking for better opportunities.” According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 54 percent of companies have reported losing talent

during the first half of 2010. The data compiled also suggests companies are starting to feel the pressure of the inability to innovate without high quality workers. According to a study by the Aberdeen Group, 83 percent of companies surveyed claimed “shortage of talent” as the No. 1 issue their company faced in 2011. A company’s talent shortage has also been associated with disengagement among employees. Of the more than 13 million employees surveyed by Gallup, 71 percent of employees in most companies are not engaged at work, costing businesses $328 billion every year. “To maintain a competitive advantage, companies need to focus on retention, engagement and leadership,” Perry said. Among the other threats, changing laws and regulations in employment has slowed companies’ productivity as well. According to the Small Business Administration, regulatory agencies enact more than 3,500 new regulations in an average year, and in 2010, 224 major rules were added. “The federal government estimates that misclassification of em!""#9%+G)&,##$%"&='

This issues, let’s look at some key definitions about the amount of benefits and the benefit period. To begin with, 5%&R#('EH' we will say,“You should consider 4A,(.$AF"& buying long term 0D*(@A+,C care insurance if: You have significant assets and income: You want to protect some of your assets and income:: You can pay premiums, including possible premium increases, without financial difficulty.” You want to maintain your independance and control your situation so as to lessen any financial or emotional burden on your family. You want the flexibility to choose where you will receive care. Key definitions: Daily or monthly benefit amount - The amount of daily or monthly coverage in dollars you choose, which becomes payable once you have satisfied your “elimination” or “waiting” period (referenced below). Insurance companies typically offer daily benefit

amounts that range from $50 to $450, with amounts of between $100 and $200, being most commonly selected. Benefit period - The number of years your policy will pay benefits for covered long term care services. According to the 2009 LTCI sourcebook, the following benefit periods were selected for policies purchased in 2008: 7% chose two years: 30% chose three years: 15% chose four years: 24% chose five years: 11% chose six to ten years: 13% chose lifetime The daily benefit amount multiplied by the benefit period will give you the total pool of money available to pay for covered expenses. For example, a policy with a $150 daily benefit and a five year benefit (1825 days) period gives you a total benefit of $273,750. Any unused portion of your daily or montly benefits are retained in the total benefit pool and may be used for future expenses, thus extending the life of the policy beyond the original benefit period. Elimination Period - The length of time you must pay for covered services while chronically ill or disabled before the insurance company will begin to pay benefits. It is similiar to a deductible in your health insurance policy. For example, if you select a !""#)&IO+'&0*##$%"&='

your daily or monthly benefit to keep up with rising long term care costs (i.e. nursing home, home health care services, etc.) The most important are compound and simple inflation protection. The compound inflation option typically adds from 3% to 5% to the daily benefit, compounded annually, while the simple inflation option raises the daily benefit usually by 5% automatically each year. So, if the increase is compounded (5%), the annual increase will be higher each year and a $100 daily benefit will be $265 a day in 20 years. If the simple inflation option is chosen, a $100 daily benefit that increases by a simple 5% a year will go up $5 a year and will be $200 a day in 20 years. • For additional discussion about Long-Term Care Insurance, or for answers to your questions, contact Tony Palma at 484-7660.

%26=1437K#+--:# *P21783-7#14# 0+H0#7->#-267 The $20 million construction project to expand the Surgery Department at Cookeville Regional Medical Center is almost complete with six new operating suites now open, and phase two of construction now underway to update and modernize the other areas. The project began construction last year, adding more surgical suites to help with the increasing surgical volume at the medical center. Phase two of construction has begun to remodel the surgical holding areas and PACU, post anesthesia care unit. Once construction is finished there will be a total of 16 new operating room suites. Though the medical center has ten operating rooms that were built in the 1980s, nearly half of those rooms are 400 square feet, which is smaller than today’s standard operating room size of 600 square feet. The expansion includes the addition of six new 650 square foot rooms in a shelled area of the North Patient Tower. These new rooms will better accommodate surgical cases that require more equipment. Cookeville Regional now has 16 fully equipped operating rooms, performing procedures from each of these services Monday through Friday. In addition, a qualified team of nurses and technicians are on call for emergencies seven days a week. Over 7,000 surgeries are performed at Cookeville Regional each year.

9Q"#1=6#>6W#18#J376=8W#8-# -L86886J#>34Q#XI61/--J]Y !"#$%&#&'()*+ My family will tell you. I am crazy about any kind of seafood! I can say that I have arranged vacations to Florida for the family and ended up going one place or the other, not because of the amenities, but for the availability of seafood. Most of my great food memories revolve around seafood. I love crab legs of any kind (but King Crab holds a special place in my heart). I ate my first King Crab at the Peabody Hotel about 35 years ago at a reception for the Tennessee Press Association. Big chunks of crab was laying on a buffet table, arranged around an ice carving. I put a serious dent into that buffet table! Once when I was at the National AAU Championships in Jacksonville, Florida, (1982) a group of coaches took us to a seafood restaurant on the St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s River called,â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crustateons.â&#x20AC;? Each circular table had a big hole in the center where we were told to throw our shells. They specialized in everything that came in a shell. Scallops still rank high on my list.

Oysters and a R.C.

A couple years ago I was on vacation in Florida and stumbled across a little country store (complete with

creaky, wooden floors), that sold oysters on the half shell. It was one of these places like you see in the movies -- like time had stood still for 75 years. A guy stood at the end of a counter, shucking oysters. They served them on a lunchroom tray. That was all they sold. No menu, no tickets. You just checked out and told them how many dozen.

Seafood Buffets

When Legends Restaurant at Fairfield Glade has a Seafood special, I usually try it out and compare it to the great seafood â&#x20AC;&#x153;all you can eatâ&#x20AC;? experiences. Right now, you can make a reservation at Legends on a Friday nights and expect to enjoy a variety of seafood. What you get exactly, changes from event to event, but you can bet there will be fish, shrimp, crab and scallops. I do like their Asian, Alfredo or Scampi stir-fry stations.

New Orleans Manor House

If we are going to speak of â&#x20AC;&#x153;all-youcan-eatâ&#x20AC;? seafood, we must pause for a moment of silence for the infamous New Orleans Manor at 1400 Murfreesboro Road in Nashville. Opened in 1977, the Manor House operated as a buffet-style seafood restaurant until it closed to undergo renovation. It

I have been pleasantly surprised with the seafood choices at Dylans in Crossville. They are former Florida restaurant owners who moved to Crossville. Their grouper, scallops and shrimp are all flown in fresh and are cooked to order. They also have a fresh crab cake, full of lump crab and I have had and enjoyed their fried oysters and whole belly clams.

Good way to spend $65 reopened in August of 2008, and is now an ala carte restaurant. In their heyday, when I was a regular on business trips to Nashville, they served soups and salds, Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, Escargot, Oysters Rockefeller, Jumbo Shrimp cooked six ways, Sea Scallops, Prime Rib, Atlanta Salmon, Grouper, Red Snapper, King Crab and, if your stomach would allow it, a Live Main Lobster, delivered to your table by waiters. All this came for $24.95 plus beverage and tip. This was a fortune in 1977.

Chinese oysters

When things get really bad and I have to have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;seafood fix,â&#x20AC;? I head down to Cookeville to go to Mandarin Palace, a Chinese Restaurant with a Hibachi Grille in the back offering different seafood options. They also have sushi (not really seafood), Snow crab legs and different kinds of fish, shrimp, frog legs, clams, mussels, etc. But it is their oysters on the half shell that gets my attention. They are the only restau-

!"#$%%&'()$$"*

Who wants to buy crab legs in a restaurant and get just enjoy to really make you want some? I watch the grocery ads and when the per-pound price on Snow crab drop down around $4.95 to $5.95 (and it does occasionally), I go and buy about $60 - $70 worth and take them home. We steam them and make our own drawn butter.

Lobsters Online

The best lobsters are supposed to come from Maine. But, you can get live Maine lobsters delivered to your door (for a price). If you order three, you get the fourth one free and the cost is just $74.97.

There is always Red Lobster

I love Red Lobster. There are those people who lived on the north east coast before moving here. They grew up with the real thing. Some of these people will make fun of Red Lobster, but I am not one of them. I used to treat !""#F%%$##$%"&=J

Pier crabbing in Patchogue

My friend Tony Palma and his dad lived in Long Island, NY before moving to Crossville. Tony said they netted crabs, a soft shell variety using a flashlight. Seems the craps would follow the light to the shore, where they would catch them in a net. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fished under a pier in Patchogue, Long Island,â&#x20AC;? Tony said.â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dad would steam them,. We got them by the bucketfuls.â&#x20AC;&#x153; You could also catch them with a cage, using a blue fish or an eel for bait. You threw

Crossville Life being located downtown. I am celebrating one year in my new offices at 28 & 34 Fourth Street, and it has been a very pleasant year. One of the pleasures of being downtown is the ability to walk more and drive less. We have all become so addicted to driving that we forget sometimes that walking is qucker and easier, and more pleasant. I know that many of our readers live in communities located several

miles from the downtown area and walking is out of the question, but for those of us lucky enough to be housed downtown, walking to our appointments is not only fun but good for us. Once I make up my mind to walk to lunch, I have several choices. To my right and across West Avenue is one of my favorite lunch spots, The Marketplace Cafe, located downstairs in the 5th Street

Guess that would be my first exposure to fresh seafood.

Digging for Cocina Clams

Back in the 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and early 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my dad took the whole family on a vacation to St. Petersburg, FL every year. My uncle lived there, Hall Napier. Uncle Hall was a commercial fisherman. He had lemon and orange trees in his yard (that always impressed me). He would come over to Wigginsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cottages, where we stayed every year, and visit. I remember him digging â&#x20AC;&#x153;cocina clamsâ&#x20AC;? out of the sand when the waves came in. Seems like he made some kind of soup with them, but I cannot imagine that you could eat them. They are too tiny. Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine what the little meat would look like.

Oyster rich

Once, back when I first moved to Crossville, I overheard a guy at the golf course at Lake Tansi talking about â&#x20AC;&#x153;making a oyster and shrimpâ&#x20AC;? run. I decided to get in and gave him an order for some of both. He told us when he would return and to have our ice and coolers ready for the transfer. He was there, right on time, and I got a grass sack full of oysters and a bunch of shrimp - whole, head and all. I have always been a good cook,but I knew nothing about cooking fresh seafood. Just getting into the oysters became a challenge, and this was before the internet. No research to be had. It took a while, but I finally found the right tool, and I was â&#x20AC;&#x153;oyster rich.â&#x20AC;? A dull

Marketplace building. I ate there on the day I wrote this story. By the way, the Marketplace Cafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu is perfect for people on a low-carb diet. My favorite lunch there is tuna or chicken salad on lettuce, with a cup of fresh fruit (pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, watermelon and grapes). On this day, I had their clam chowder. I truly love their sweet tea, but held off today because of my eating plan, and it took a lot of will power, because they have the best tea in town that you sweeten yourself at the table. The food is clean, fresh and served in nice dishes, including some antique china. I refuse to eat out of styrofoam with plasticware. I like tablecloths, nice cutlery, polite waitresses and a comfortable environment, all of which you get !""#!)5*I##$%"&=L

knife and a pair of work gloves eventually paid off. Once I got the feel, it was all downhill. I guess I was lucky that they were fresh and made the trip on crushed ice. The shrimp were easier, I had fished with live shrimp before, so knew what I was getting. Some Seafood boil, a hot pot and some experimenting yielded a good meal and lots of samples for neighbors. I was not afraid to eat the head, but some others were a bit squeamish. â&#x20AC;˘ I would like to hear from you, if you know of a great seafood restaurant that you think I would enjoy or a seafood memory of your own youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to share.

at Marketplace Cafe. Their menu is not huge, their cooking is not elaborate, and their prices are certainly not high -- but I find it to my liking and am becoming a regular.

One of my favorities

To my left, up 4th Street and across Main is Forteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, a destination of some acclaim. They are in the process of having the bricks on the old building sandblasted and the result is awesome. Forteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is open daily for lunch and on Friday and Saturdays for dinner. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a bit of hesitation in saying that they have the best steaks in Crossville. They also have seafood and Italian dishes. As a matter of fact,

I would say their food is good enough that I would rank it as a special occasion restaurant, fancy enough for anniversaries, birthdays, promotions, etc. Crossville is lucky to have a restaurant like Forteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. I know a lot of towns that would be excited to have a family-owned and operated restaurant this good. In behind my building is 5th Street Diner. A meat & three would be how some would describe them. They are open for breakfast and lunch Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. They are closed on Wednesdays and Saturdays. This is a meatloaf and mashed potato destination, and their homemade pies and cakes are among the best in town. Their claim to fame is their skillet-fried chicken, usually on the menu twice a week, but always on Sundays. The patrons know it too, as the after-church crowd keeps them hopping every

Sunday. A couple of blocks away is Bostons, owned and operated by the Jay family. They offer combos of salad, sandwiches, and soup plus a lot of other entreeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Mitchellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drug Store is also in the immediate neighborhood. While they are not a restaurant, they are certainly one of my daily destinations, as I join with about a dozen of my cronies for coffee and deliberation as we discuss everything thats fit to be called â&#x20AC;&#x153;news.â&#x20AC;? Head cook and bottle washer at Mitchells is the supreme commander, Bob Mitchell, who holds court most days. We often celebrate special occasions with pinto beans, cornbread, turnip greens, and dessert. Coffee is free on Saturday mornings as long as you wait on yourself. Dick Gould has been bringing in a dozen donuts every Saturday morning for as long as I have been going there.

Ruthie Kerley, owner of Marketplace Cafe, is in the process of opening a bake shop next door to her cafe in the Marketplace building on 5th Street. She plans to feature speciality pies, cakes and other sweet treats by the piece or whole. Long term plans include a coffee and dessert lounge serving several kinds of coffees.

We have had a bagel shop and a Java (coffee) shop on Main Street that did not make it --both were in the same location. Rumor is that another shop is looking to go into that spot, which is devoid of parking space (located across the street from The Palace Theatre).

Addicted to bacon

I am addicted to good, thick bacon. About a year ago, after seeing it on The Food Network, I ordered some extra-thick bacon that truly put store-bought to shame. It was a full 1/4â&#x20AC;? thick and hickory smoked. In fact, it was thick enough to cook on the grill. Now, as you might guess, they did not give this bacon away. As a matter of fact it costs $44.95 for two 2-lb. packs. The same cost for their extra thick peppered bacon (also mightly good). Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had this, it is terribly difficult to go back to bacon so thin â&#x20AC;&#x153;you can read the paper through it.â&#x20AC;? I tried it several ways, but the best was a recipe where I sprinkled some slices with brown sugar and baked it in the oven. This same company, Edwards of Surry, Virginia, sells Virginia hams, link sausage, smoked sausage and sausage in patties. If you have enough money, they will even sell you a country ham or bacon by the 5-pound slab. Ever since I ordered that first bacon, I have been getting their magazine which is so appetizing, I think I can smell the products by just reading the magazine.They also ship Chesapeak Bay Oysters, soft shell crab and crab cakes, You can go on line and sign up for their product catalog or write them at: Edwards Virginia Traditions, P.O.

_383437K#!61<43/<.#!<=K688#F1..8 !"#5)H#)&,+'H The Feed Store on highway 70 is just opening its doors for business as we prepare to pull out of their parking lot on our Yamaha Venture Royale. Today we are going to take the back roads to Burgess Falls near Cookeville. It’s a perfect morning for a ride with the bright sun and clear sky. We need light jackets to start, but the day promises to be mostly sunny and warm. My wife, Julie, is riding with me on this adventure. We have an intercom system in our helmets so we could chat along the way. The 1300 cc engine roars to life and I kick it in first gear. We’re on the way. We stay on highway 70N riding past the fair grounds and the flea market. Across from the flea market is the cattle auction barn. I remember when I was little I would go there with dad when he had cows to sell. The old dirt track on the right brings back memories of Saturday nights with the smell of engine oil mingling with that of popcorn, and the roar of the engines as they competed for the checkered flag. We relax and enjoy the cool wind on our faces, listen to the purr of the engine and watch the scenery slip quickly past. The aroma of freshly mowed lawns intertwines with the sweet scent of the privet and honeysuckle blooming along the side of the road. We turn left at the traffic light in Monterey, and before long the road starts to snake its way down the mountainside toward Cookeville. This is the kind of riding I enjoy most. I intently concentrate on the road, swinging the bike to one side then the other, constantly on the lookout for hazards that could send us off the edge of the narrow road. We lean hard with the bike around the curves and feel its power as I twist the throttle coming out. It wouldn’t take much to drag a peg on the turns. But, before long the road levels out again and we find ourselves gliding through a picturesque valley with farms on either side of the road. There is a herd of black cows grazing in a field of bright yellow flowers. A forlorn looking horse is hanging his head sadly over a gate, wanting some attention from anyone willing to pause long enough to give it to him. Some of the fields have been recently plowed in preparation for the spring planting, and we smell the pungent odor of the freshly turned soil. When we reach the interstate, we jump on headed west in order to avoid the traffic in downtown Cookeville. We don’t stay on long, however, as we get off at the Burgess Falls exit and follow the signs toward our destination. It’s nice to be back on the winding country roads. The aroma of new mown hay is heavy in the air. There are a lot of other motorcycle riders out today. Our camaraderie is expressed with a wave to each one. We arrive at Burgess Falls and prepare to take the three-quarter mile hike to the Big Falls. We first come to the Cascades and then to Middle Falls. These are smaller falls, but still beautiful in their own right. A little further along the trail and we are at the Big Falls overlook. Spectacular! We are looking down on the falls from high above it. The falls itself is a sheer drop of 136 feet from its top to bottom. We want to get a closer view, so we take the steep path leading down to the base of the falls. About half way down the switchback trail we get to the top of

the falls. I cautiously walk to the edge and look over. It’s a long way straight down to the churning water below. I slip on the slick rocks at the base of the falls due to the mist billowing from the thundering torrent. The roar is deafening. It is an awesome sight standing at the foot of the falls looking up to the heavens. The mist sparkles like diamonds against the blue sky and fluffy white clouds. As I drink in this magnificence, a hawk soars silently over the falls riding the thermals, reveling in its freedom.

We are huffing and puffing by the time we climb our way back up the steep trail to the overlook. The hike was tiring, but well worth it. By comparison, the rest of the walk to the motorcycle is easy. The picnic table under the shade of the trees is inviting so we sit a few minutes to

rest, drinking our water and watching the multi colored butterflies flit about. After our rest we climb aboard the bike, bring it to life and head it toward I-40 for the trip back to Crossville. Burgess Falls is definitely a place I would recommend for a motorcycle day trip.

I guess things like this have to happen. The editors of the past cannot last forever. Sooner or later it had to happen, but I never expected them to bring in a complete “foreigner.” It was announced in mid May that Dave Ammenheuser would be the new Sports Editor at the Tennessean. Ammenheuser is from California. I have read the Tennessean daily since the 1950’s except for a few years when I lived so far away from Nashville that I could not find one, except in the college library. I feel a bit betrayed. About the only thing Tennessee has in common with California is Lane Kiffin, and you know what kind of reputation he left here. How will this guy ever understand about the Tennessee-Vandy rivalry or the Belmont-Lipscomb battles, or of Tennessee State’s colorful past, the Nashville Vols, not to mention Pat Summitt, Johnny Majors, Wilma Rudolph, Ralph Boston, The Tigerbelles, Richard Dent, Hacksaw Reynolds, a guy named Peyton, Earnie and Bernie, General Neyland, Phil Fulmer, Tee Martin, Mack Brown, Steve Spurrier, Bill Battle, Joe Gilliam, Larry Schmittou, Dick Barnett, Reggie White, Perry Wallace, Stanley Morgan, Ron Widby, Roy Skinner, Lou Graham, Curt Watson, George Cafego, Beattie Feathers -- and these are just the ones I can remember right now. By the time this new editor has learned enough about Tennessee’s sports past, he will be out in the pasture with all the other has beens. I just don’t think he has the pedigree to be “my” sports editor.

Father-Son Tournament here

The 33rd Annual TPGA FatherSon golf tournament will be played at Stonehenge on Saturday and Sunday, June 16-17. This is a prestigious tournament that Crossville has landed. No other community in the state plays host to four state championship tournaments. City City of Crossville is the host and primary sponsor of four: 1) Tennessee Women’s Open 2) Tennessee Senior Men’s Open 3) Team Championship 4) Father-Son Championship

Cream rises to the top

You have to be a golfer -- not necessarily a great golfer, but you’ve got to be a pretty good golfer to understand just how tough Stonehenge is from the tips, on a sloppy course. On the first day of the Tennessee Senior Open, after it had already rained a couple inches, the top 20 players in that prestigious tournament, went out and tamed the “old girl” with some very impressive scores. We play that course from the white tees and it eats our lunch. I can’t imagine how tough it is from the tips with wet fairways. That would make it nearly,“unfair.” Yet, two in the field, pro Harry Taylor and amateur Danny

Green, turned in identical 68’s. After the second round was rained out, the tourney was called and winners were determined by the one day scores. Taylor got the $5,000 check. Taylor had six birdies and a double bogey for his 68. Congratulations to a couple of local players in the field. Eddie Wyatt of Crossville shot an even par 72 and finished seventh. Tony Cox carded a 75, which gave him a top 20 finish.

Ping’s real gift to golf

I found about this story from a friend who had played golf at the Disney course in Florida and actually met

a veteran who had been the recipient of a set of new clubs from Ping. The story goes that a disabled Army vet was playing golf at Disney and my friend noticed his bag with his name on it, and in a normal conversation, asked him who he was. He was told that as part of the discharge process from the rehabilitation hospital, Ping came in and provided three days of golf instruction for him, followed by club fitting . Upon discharge from the hospital, Ping gave him and all other discharged veterans a brand new set of custom fitted clubs along with the impressive golf bags.

The fellow in this story was Ben Woods and he said that being fitted for those clubs was one of the best things that ever happened to him and he was determined to learn to play golf well enough to deserve the gift Ping had given him. Ben is now out of the service, medically discharged.

Thank you Ping!

Ping, whose products are made with pride here in America (Arizona), has the good judgment not to advertise this program. I checked this out on Snopes.com, and found the story to be very accurate. I just wanted to share it with golfers here in Crossville (and anywhere else my circulation extends to.)

"Conrad Miller installed a 14 " Sun Tunnel in our kitchen area, we were extremely happy with it, and also Conrad's work. We sold our house and the brightness of the solar tube no doubt helped with this process." HELEN HILL, FAIRFIELD GLADE â&#x20AC;&#x153;My house was built back when they were putting fewer windows in for energy-saving reasons, and my house was very dark. I first had Conrad install tubular skylights in my living room. I liked them so well, I had him come back and put one in my kitchen. The natural light that comes in though these skylights make me feel better and I can see better with them than I can with lights. I would recommend him to everyone. He was courteous, his work was efficient and the price fair.â&#x20AC;?

much brighter than I ever imagined it would be. It really brightens up the kitchen where we had it installed, and we could not be happier with it. We highly recommend Conrad. He did a very nice job and there was absolutely no mess associated with the installation.

I first had Conrad install tubular skylights in my living room. I liked them so well, I had him come back and put one in my kitchen.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tubular Skylights really perk up homes, regardless of when they were built, and in my opinion as a Real Estate agent, makes them much easier to sell. Whenever I show a home that has a tubular skylight, say in a bathroom or dark kitchen. I always ask the people looking the house to â&#x20AC;&#x153;turn off that light please,â&#x20AC;? as we leave the room. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny when they hit the switch and see that it is not a light. They do look like lights.â&#x20AC;?

DON AND NATALIE NAPIER, HOMESTEADS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had Conrad put one of his skylights in our kitchen, which had always been a bit dark in one area. We have been very pleased and like everyone else, it took us a while to quit trying to turn it off. Recently, when we were remodeling our home, a new wall went in exactly where the skylight was. Conrad was able to use elbow tubes to angle to the new location, which kept him from moving the external flashing on the roof. â&#x20AC;&#x153;

BOB AND DONNA BONCHER, FAIRFIELD GLADE â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1997, when we moved to our new home, we had Conrad come out an install two, one in the kitchen and one in our laundry room, which was very dark at the time. They really make a huge difference and it made working there so much more enjoyable. Donna calls her skylights, which require no electricity or wiring, her â&#x20AC;&#x153;moonsâ&#x20AC;? because they put out so much light, even at night. They have made quite a difference. They actually help me feel better in the Winter. Natural Light helps!â&#x20AC;?
