A great surprise for Mother’s Day

Playl’s Ponderings – By Steve Playl

He’s been surprising us since birth. Well, actually he started surprising us before he was born. My reference here is to our one and only son.

Sammie’s pregnancy with him was a surprise. We thought we were done with three females, but, nine years after the baby girl, we learned that another blessing was on its way.

His gender was a surprise. Oh, I wanted a boy to pass the name on, but, with three girls, we just did not expect a male child. My daddy had eight sisters, and he was the only brother. His youngest sister, my Aunt Rosena, reminded … CONTINUED

JORDAN CASEY: Special Olympics Tennessee Athlete of the Year

NINA WESTON: Special Olympics Area 9 – Upper Cumberland Region’s Coach of the Year

By Rachel Auberger

“When you think of someone who should be considered for the ‘Athlete of the Year’ award, you think of someone brave, outgoing, upbeat, and kind.

Casey, who moved to Sparta three years ago after his mother tragically passed away, said Special Olympics gave him something positive to look forward to and a place to belong.

Cookeville Community Band concerts on hold through June

Posted by | May 21, 2020 6:58 am

Dogwood Park’s performance pavilion will be empty come Memorial Day.

No performers. No audience members. No music.

That day would have marked the first in a series of free summer concerts by the Cookeville Community Band. But due to COVID-19, those concerts are on hold.

“The Cookeville Community Band board of directors has decided not to have any rehearsals or concerts in May or June,” the band’s Facebook page says. “We plan to meet again in mid-June to reevaluate things and make decisions about our July concerts.”

The woodwind, brass and percussion ensemble has been performing at Dogwood Park since 2003, having formed shortly after the completion of … CONTINUED

Tennessee Broadband Association launches campaign to highlight importance of fiber

When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the state, Tennessee Broadband Association member companies provided the technology to help residents work from home, study online and stay connected with family.

Dear SpartaLive,

Thank you to The Expositor and Sonic for  the sponsorship of the Sock Hop Cruise In, on Saturday night. As always, we had a great time and a super crowd to hear us play.
