The Macon County Community Foundation will be continuing its Mystery Dinner offering, “I Wed Three Wives” on Feb. 25, 26, at 6:30, at Fat Buddies restaurant in Franklin.

Herb Fillbrook is married to three different women, all at the same time. When all three wives and Herb show up at the Hotel Winston, there are bound to be some serious confrontations – maybe even a murder.


Every year, the Highlands Chamber of Commerce organizes a chili cook off and each year is a little different from the previous one. This year, the theme is “Western” all the way, from the décor right down to the attire and the public is invited to get out your boots, bandanas, hats and come to the Highlands Community Building Saturday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. Mike Murphy will provide the mood music for the evening.

For chili-lovers who would rather eat than cook, tickets will be sold at the door, $20 per person (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) and children 12 and under get in free. Soft drinks, beer and wine will be served to help cleanse the palate and put out the fire. Diners will decide the winners of the evening’s competition by voting for their Favorite Chili, Hottest Chili and Most Unusual.


Forget what you know about illusionists: no cheesy tuxedos, no rabbits to pull out of hats. Brock Gill leads a new generation of edgy, daring illusionists, amazing audiences with his unique stage show, dry wit, and mind-blowing escapes. He will appear at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, Feb. 25. While working at a saw mill in 1997, Gill felt that God wanted him to use illusions, escapes, and stunts to bring a message of hope to people. “It didn’t make any sense,” Gill admits, “but I felt like it was what God was calling me to do.”

Gill has shared the stage with many well known speakers, worship leaders, and artists such as Franklin Graham, John Piper, David Nasser, Adrian Rogers, John Bisagno, Relient K, Sonic Flood, Toby Mac, Audio Adrenaline, Third Day, Jaci Velasquez, Pillar, Mercy Me, Casting Crowns, and others.
