If you have ever wondered how beautiful stained glass is made, Fire and Light Glass Studio owner John Phillips can tell you. Not only can he tell you, he can teach you everything there is to know about art glass and welcome you into his studio to learn how to create works of art using stained glass or fused glass methods.

Located just off Highway 441S in Otto, Phillips opened his 2,200 foot studio six years ago after moving from Duluth, Ga., where he started his glass business in 1980. Phillips decided to move to Otto and into a much smaller studio so he could slow down and relax a bit.


A Poetry Alive presentation was held at the Macon County Public Library and some area schools this week. Ken and Nadine Delano made poetry come alive by acting out Nursery Rhymes and involving students.

Based in Asheville, Poetry Alive! performs to 600,000 students each year, appearing in all 50 states and many foreign countries. The Delanos recently performed in Istanbul, Turkey.


Celebrate all things imaginary as Horton the Elephant, the Cat In the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, the Sour Kangaroo, and more, sing and dance their way off the pages of some of Dr. Seuss’ best loved stories in “Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss” March 1 and 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.

“Happy Birthday” is not just a show for kids, but for everyone who enjoys an evening at the theater. Many adults will remember the characters and stories from their childhood and will enjoy seeing them spring to life in bright colors on the stage.


The First Thursday Old-Time and Bluegrass Jam Session Series at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center will continue Thursday, March 3, with a concert of bluegrass gospel music by Mountain Faith.

The group’s 7 p.m. performance will be followed by an 8 p.m. jam session in which local musicians are invited to participate.
