Happy New Year!!

Well, it’s time to go over that list of New Year’s resolutions that I pledge to keep on an annual basis. The only problem is they are always broken and the list gets hidden in a drawer somewhere by the third or fourth day. So this year will be different. I’m not going to renew the same three resolutions that seem to never get past Jan. 4 anyway. Diet? Forget it. Dustfree home? Natta! Read my Bible and pray every day? Well....maybe I should hang on to that one. So since I’m in front of my computer and my email is on 24/7, I have signed up for a couple really good daily edevotions and the prayer requests from my church come to me now via email. Voila! It’s right there in front of my face and I can’t not remember! (I just won’t call this a resolution and then maybe I’ll be more successful at accomplishing the goal). Speaking of goals, the Weekender staff has set some new ones to make this publication an even better one than before. Starting with this issue, you will find that a brand new “feature article” has been added. This destination will cover all three of our criteria: Places to go, things to do and people to see all in one place or event. Just look on the cover each month to see what the feature article is. We have also added all of our events on the calendar page of our website so that you can check out new listings posted as they are received. Click here to take a peek... Then last, but not least, have a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! Kathy Barnett

About the Cover : During the next three months, outdoor fun centers around snow sports and the new Clearfork Resort is a great place to visit to go snow skiing and snow tubing. See page 2 and 14 for details.

People to See: Dailey & Vincent at the Renaissance Theatre Jan. 14 - 8 p.m.

MANSFIELD -Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent became the most heralded new act in the bluegrass music field in 2008, as their debut album and busy tour schedule introduced them to wildly appreciative audiences. Their first recording, Daily & Vincent, was #1 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums chart, as well as the Bluegrass Unlimited and Bluegrass Music Profiles album charts. It was also named Album of the Year, one of seven awards the group took home in an unprecedented feat at the 2008 International Bluegrass Music Awards Show. Never before had an act been named Entertainer and Emerging Artist in the same year, an honor that both humbles and challenges the duo. Dailey & Vincent’s path to acclaim began many years ago as both men were raised in musical families and have played bluegrass since the age of three – Jamie in Tennessee and Darrin in Missouri. They apprenticed with legendary acts, Jamie with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and Darrin with his sister Rhonda Vincent, the late John Hartford and Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder. Jamie and Darrin met at the 2001 IBMA Awards show in Louisville and discovered an uncanny harmony in their vocal blend, as well as their attitudes toward music, business and their Christian faith. Jamie Dailey (guitar, bass, lead and harmony vocals) was hired by Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver in 1998 as lead, baritone and tenor singer and bass player. Three years later he switched to guitar, but January, 2012

continued to sing lead and harmony vocals on the concert trail and on nine of the band's albums. During Jamie’s tenure the band won 13 IBMA Awards and Song of the Year for “Blue Train,” which featured his singing—and earned four Grammy® and five Dove Award nominations. Jamie has recorded with Dolly Parton and Rhonda Vincent, appeared on five Gaither Homecoming DVD’s, and was a guest on Ricky Skaggs’ Grammywinning Brand New Strings album. Darrin Vincent (mandolin, bass, guitar, lead and harmony vocals) started singing at age three and playing music at age six as part of his family band, The Sally Mountain Show, along with sister Rhonda Vincent. As a member of Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder for the past ten years, Darrin has won five Grammy Awards and eight IBMA Awards for Instrumental Group of the Year. He also performed on Grammy-winning albums by Dolly Parton and Jimmy Sturr. Darrin earned three Grammy nominations for co-producing Rhonda Vincent’s One Step Ahead, Ragin’ Live and All American Bluegrass Girl. His other production credits include Susie Luchsinger’s Dove Awardnominated Count It All Joy, The Cherryholmes’ Bluegrass Vagabonds, and Hunter Berry’s IBMAnominated Wow Baby. Tickets are $22.50 and may be purchased at the Renaissance Box Office, by calling 419-522-2726 or online

How the royal wedding influenced

Charles. Many brides are now emulating the elegant lace gown worn by Catherine Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge. In addition to beautiful lace, the newest trends in wedding gowns include color, soft sleeves, short hemlines and eco-friendly materials. Whether it is Chantilly, Alencon, duchesse, guipure, or ribbon, lace has become one of the hottest trends this year. "Designers at all price points have debuted collections featuring full frothy skirts, wildflowers and lace used in both traditional and modern ways," says Kate Campbell, department

(ARA) - Although the latest Brides American Wedding Study shows the average cost of a wedding in 2010 was $26,501, a decrease of 5 percent from 2009, weddings continue to be big business. But many couples are opting to cut the guest list instead of big ticket items like wedding gowns. In fact, the average wedding gown cost $1,289 in 2010, a 20 percent increase over 2009, according to the study. This is no surprise to the millions who were glued to their television sets this past April during the most talked about wedding since the 1981 royal wedding of Lady Diana to Prince

"This particular trend parallels the more feminine, elegant trends we see in fashion everywhere - including more fitted and ladylike styles reminiscent of Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy." While not for everyone, the use of color in wedding gowns has been growing in popularity. Rich and vibrant, or more subdued, color in bridal wear is everywhere. Some brides choose soft pastel colors, such as blush, rose

or skin-tone. Others opt to wear vibrant hues of lavender, green and deep pink. Less bold brides are more likely to use hints of accent color on sashes, bows, embroidery, hems, necklines or beading. "The bride who chooses to add color to her dress is fashion forward and confident - it's not for the faint of heart," says Amber Chatelain, lead faculty for the Fashion & Retail Management program at The Art Institute of Tennessee - Nashville, a branch of The Art Institute of Atlanta. Another interesting new trend in bridal wear is short gowns, especially for brides choosing destination and beach weddings. While they may be short in length, these dresses are not short on style. Some offer sophisticated laces,

chic feathers or multilayered organza mini-skirts. Soft sleeves are enjoying a comeback. Designers have debuted soft, romantic sleeves, including traditional cap sleeves in florals and tulle, modern silhouettes using vintage elements, sequin fringe and flutter sleeves, and romantic off-the-shoulder versions. "The softness and elegance of the sleeves in bridal wear mirrors today's general fashion trends, where designers are highlighting the elegance and beauty of the female form in very soft ways," says Charlene Parsons, who heads the fashion programs at Miami International University of Art & Design. Eco-friendly options have also increased in popularity. "There are

now numerous eco-friendly designers whose sole business is to create wedding dresses made with earth-friendly fabrics and materials, using techniques that are in harmony with the earth," says Crystal Shamblee, department chair of Fashion Design for The Art Institute of Philadelphia. Secondhand and vintage wedding dresses are another eco-friendly choice. Whatever fashion trends a bride chooses, one that will never go out of style is a gown that fits well, is figure flattering and makes the bride feel like she's the most beautiful woman in the world on her big day.

FELIX CAVALIERE’S RASCALS BRING GOOD LOVIN’ TO THE RITZ THEATRE ON SATURDAY, JAN. 21 AT 7:30 P.M. TICKETS ARE $20-50 EACH. TIFFIN - Felix's musical influences started to take hold in the forms of idolizing the music of Ray Charles among others. He formed his first band called The Stereos while in his teens during which time he started to perfect his vocal abilities. He says his voice was "really bad", he said he sounded like a frog initially and his voice "needed a lot of help". He also discovered the Hammond organ sound around this time and was mesmerized by it - the Hammond later became Felix's own "trademark sound" along with his own beautiful voice. Early in 1965, Felix formed the "Young Rascals" with the additions of Dino Danelli, Eddie Brigati and Gene Cornish. On October 28, 1965 The Rascals performed at the Phone Booth, a club in the "discotheque district" of Manhattan's East Side. Their high-energy set attracted the attention of Sid Bernstein, and the group was signed with Atlantic Records. Before they knew it, they began releasing records. From 1965 through 1969, The Rascals were one of

January 2012

the biggest groups in the country. With hits including the Felix-sung "Good Lovin'," "Groovin'," "A Girl Like You," and "A Beautiful Morning," they evolved from blue-eyed soul (a term coined to describe them) to pop psychedelia and jazz fusion. The Rascals' biggest hit, "People Got to Be Free," was co-written by Felix and Eddie Brigati as an impassioned response to the assassinations of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. topping the charts for five weeks in 1968.
