MM News

Thanks to generous donations and a grant from Volunteer Electric, we raised enough money for tablets for my Meteorologist Mark classes for kids!!! How awesome is that!? In addition to the hands-on activities that we do, these tablets will even further enhance the learning experience! Thank you all so very much!


The last MM class was postponed due to weather. That class has been rescheduled for March 24.

Saving our Hardwoods

Please help us work to preserve the beauty of the Catoosa Wildlife Management Area. Please consider signing the petition to save the hardwoods there from being harvested at

An informational meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 8, at 6:00 pm at the Community Complex. Marvin Bullock from the White County Chamber of Commerce will give a very helpful presentation on how to make your voices heard. His work to save the Bridgestone-Firestone Wilderness area of White County has given him a wealth of information to share. Representatives from the TWRA will be there to answer questions. Many of these folks are driving in from Nashville.

This is a wonderful opportunity to get everyone to communicating, which is something that has been lacking for too many years.

Creative Compassion

We had a wonderful time yesterday at the Art Circle Public Library  yesterday! Local author Rita Reali has offered a portion of her book sales to go to Creative Compassion! That fundraiser began Saturday and continues
for the next three months! It was so nice to meet those of you who came. We raised nearly $70 with this first day of fundraising, which will be so helpful to a family in need of our help! To purchase a book, just go to

Creative benefits mainly local low-income residents with various housing needs, including rent, utility, or mortgage assistance. Anyone can encounter a time when they need a hand up and Creative is here to help in any way we can! This year alone we’ve helped 12 families with rent/mortgage/utility assistance who have encountered loss of work mainly due to sickness. With the help of donations, we’ll be able to help even more folks,
including our veterans and elderly residents who need our help. For more info on our organization, please see and/or let me know if you have any questions or fundraising ideas!

Creative Compassion, Inc

And if you or someone you know needs a high school diploma, just let me know and I’ll help you get that degree! Contact me or someone at the adult education center today to get the diploma you’ve always wanted! 

You all have a great day and keep lookin’ up!

  1. Are you going to predict last frosts for gardeners? Do you trust DavesGarden for the predictions which are 100% historical I guess. When can you refine it more specific to this year? Thanks from Pleasant Hill

    1. Hi Leslie! I always recommend that no one plant anything that is frost sensitive until after Mother’s Day…and even then I’d check the forecast! ha It’s almost impossible to predict the last frost, as these quick cold snaps can come and go on a whim. I will say that the latest frost on record is June 3, 1956.
