estate, the showing will be Nov 4-6 at the Hilton Suties. Contact Ronna

October 2002: An entry from Theresa Shalaby:
"There is a major issue of concern that you all need to be aware of. Please go to
profilesinhistory.com for the
full story, but the gist is that in December, a number of PRECIOUS items of
Patsy's will be auctioned off to deal with issues regarding the estate of
Patsy's beloved mother, Hilda. Now, these aren't just a few cowgirl outfits
we're talking about. The items include a dress worn at Carnegie Hall, and two
outfits from Patsy's Las Vegas performances, INCLUDING the beautiful sequinned
black gown, gloves, and purse. Hilda sewed sequins on that gown till her
fingers bled, and by God, it's sickening to think that this will be sold off,
never to be seen again, all due to disputes and greed. Patsy would be
heartbroken if she were here to see this. This is an OUTRAGE that items with
such tremendous historical and sentimental value will be put on the block to
be potentially whisked away to someone's basement, or private collection, never
to be seen by fans who adore Patsy so very much.
What a sad, heartbreaking time for Patsy and her fans. I don't claim to
understand the dynamics of why this is happening, but it is so disconcerting.
I feel for family members who may be caught up in this and helpless to rescue
these precious items. My thoughts are for people to contact all and any
entities out there who may have the interest and resources to purchase these
items and donate them back to either the Hall of Fame or any museum.
Let it be known that these proceeds from this auction WILL NOT benefit a museum
of any kind for Patsy. This is solely for the estate, as is made clear in the
story at Profiles in History. Please, if any of you can think of ways to help
bring Patsy's history home, and out of the hands of some rich private collector
that will likely keep these treasures hidden, get on it. We can't let Patsy be
robbed like this, we just can't. For Patsy's sake, and for the sake of what she
and Hilda would have wanted, please think of, and do anything that you can,
even if it seems small and insignificant.
Per, if you want to put this info on the news page, it might be interesting
for people to know, and perhaps someone out there can contact someone with the
resources to purchase this stuff, and donate it back. This is a tragedy waiting
October 2002: There is a Norwegian country singer
named Anne Kristin Sagmo, who released her second CD in August, and that CD

remember Patsy Cline". You can listen to the complete song, and three more, at
her homepage. Just

October 2002: The following is probably old news
for most of you, but since I seem to have neglected to mention it here before,
I thought I'd do that, also partly because I was reminded of it by Robert
Miller... :-) Anyway, this is a quote from the NPR website:
"Throughout the year 2000, National Public Radio presented
the stories behind 100 of the most important American musical works of the 20th
century. These special features cover music from a wide variety of genres --
classical, jazz, rock'n'roll, country, R&B, musical theatre and film scores.
NPR 100 stories aired on All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and NPR's weekend
news magazine programs.
will find audio of three NPR feature stories -- one from Morning Edition and two
from All Things Considered -- on the NPR 100, plus the complete NPR 100 list arranged
alphabetically with the air date and the original audio of each piece."
Needless to say, Patsy's recording of "Crazy" is one of those 100 most important

open at The Nightlife Dinner Theatre in Nashville, TN on September 27, 2002.

August 2002: News from Todd Jeffries:
"This week I received permission from Charlie Dick to produce boxed sets of note
cards using my original graphite portraits of Patsy. These are the same portraits
that are also available as Limited Edition prints. (I donated a set of the prints
to the Fan Club for their Silent Auction at the Labour Day Weekend Celebration.)
The note cards measure 5.5 x 4.25 inches, and are packaged in boxes of 10
(envelopes included). The cost for a single box of 10 note cards with envelopes is $15.
Folks can save by purchasing a double-box set ( one box of each set) for $25.
I am taking this opportunity to also try and raise funds for the Always Patsy Cline
Fan Club by choosing to contribute 20% of every sale directly to them. I have also
decided to contribute 20% of each sale of the Limited Edition Prints to the Fan Club
as well. The note cards will make great gifts, but supplies are limited so folks
should get theirs while they can. They can be purchased directly from my online store
at www.tjeffries.com. Most major credit cards
are accepted and all transactions are made using a secure server." Thanks, Todd!

August 2002: Press release:
"Cline recalled in tribute album, network special, Fri Aug 16, 4:19 AM ET - Tamara Conniff;
LOS ANGELES (The Hollywood Reporter) --- Country legend Patsy Cline's musical influence
continues its ride almost 40 years after her death. A tribute album featuring Norah
Jones and Diana Krall and a remastered version of Cline's 1967 'Greatest Hits' album are
ready for release and a television special is in the works. Of note is that the tribute,
'Remembering Patsy Cline', and the 'Greatest Hits' remastered album (the original has
sold almost 10 million copies to date) both feature the same songs in the same order,
MCA Nashville executive vp Mark Wright said. Additionally, the first track on the tribute
is a slight remix of Cline's 1961 version of 'Walking After Midnight'. Her vocal was mixed
in with a new blues/rock backing track -- a use that was approved by Cline's husband,
Charlie Dick. The tribute also features Martina McBride with Take 5, Natalie Cole, Jessi
Alexander, Michelle Branch, Amy Grant, Lee Ann Womack, Patty Griffin, Rebecca Lynn Howard
and k.d. lang. 'All of the artists on (the tribute) are passionate about Patsy Cline,'
Wright said. 'You can tell when an artist is really involved with the music.' The albums
are likely to hit stores this year, but because talks of a network TV special are under
way, the release date is on hold. Numerous ideas for the special are being bandied about,
including a show that highlights performances by the tribute artists under a biographical
backdrop. MCA Nashville chairman Bruce Hinton and Wright produced the album. (Hinton
stepped down from his post after 19 years earlier this month.) Cline died March 5, 1963,
in a plane crash. She would have turned 70 on Sept. 8."

July 2002: A message from Theresa Shalaby:
"Hi Patsypals: It is time for us to unite, and do something to help Patsy. You may not
be aware of this, but there is a proposal on the table in Winchester to re-zone the area
near Shenandoah Memorial Park, where Patsy is laid to rest. This re-zoning plan includes
large commercial plans, which means going to the cemetery, and dealing with strip malls,
noise, and pollution in your face. I can't imagine anything so disturbing and disrespectful.
Patsy's grave is about to be desecrated, and we CAN and must try to make a difference.The proposal
is likely going to be on the agenda of a meeting in August of the Planning
Committee for Winchester. A local group is working to stop it, and I think that we must
make our feelings known about this issue as well. If you go to
www.winchesterstar.com, click on the 'Forum'
page, then click on 'Winchester'. We've already got the issue there, and people are weighing
in on it. We all take the time to post, chat, and share our love for Patsy on great sites
like this. So, PLEASE, take the time to do this for Patsy. She needs our help. If you do post,
think about all of the other civic-minded reasons that this re-zoning is detremental, like
traffic, pollution, overcrowding, etc., and not just the obvious Patsyfeelings. We don't
want to be discredited as just following our emotions. We won't help Patsy any with that.Please,
let's do this. Together, we can help make a difference for Patsy.
E-mail me with any questions, and/or check out the Patsy
news page at Lisa Floods's
Patsified website. I'll do anything I
can to help. I am so passionate about this, and feel that finally, for once, there is
something we can do for Patsy and her family. Patsy's counting on us, so GET WRITIN' Y'ALL!!"

"My name is Brett McCormick and I live in Nashville, TN. As you know, next
March commemorates the 40th anniversary of Patsy Cline's death. I am interested
in organizing an event to celebrate Patsy's life and achievements in Nashville
in March 2003, in coordination with the Grand Ole Opry and Charlie Dick. Prior
to planning such an event, I am trying to get a feel for the public demand to
be able to know what kind of facilty will house this tribute. I was wondering
if it would be possible to post a poll on your website that Patsy fans could
give their feedback on this memorial. Any help that you could offer would be
greatly appreciated." Lisa Flood has posted a poll at her website, and

ARTISTS FROM ALL GENRES COME TOGETHER TO HONOR
MULTI-MILLION SELLING PATSY CLINE
NASHVILLE, TN -- May 16, 2002 --
What do Natalie Cole, Diana Krall, Lee Ann Womack, Michelle Branch and kd lang
have in common? For starters, these platinum-plus selling singers each list
Patsy Cline as one of the most important female vocalists in the history of
recorded music. So, it was no surprise when they were asked to join a very
special tribute recording being put together by Cline's label, MCA Nashville,
they jumped at the opportunity.
In what may be the most exciting and talked about recordings of the year, MCA
Nashville has banded these artists, and more, together to pay homage to the
original diva, Patsy Cline. Recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville and New York,
the tribute album, "Remembering Patsy", will be released later this year. The
songs selected for the tribute album reflect all of the titles included on
Cline's nine million-plus selling "Greatest Hits" CD. Artists and the songs
they have chosen to record include: Natalie Cole performing "I Fall To Pieces";
Lee Ann Womack singing "She's Got You"; Diana Krall performing "Crazy";
Michelle Branch singing "Strange" and kd lang performing "Leavin' On Your
According to Bruce Hinton, Chairman of MCA Nashville, the label was trying to
think of something special to do to honor Cline and acknowledge the incredible
staying power of her "Greatest Hits" package, which has spent an incredible 500
plus weeks (and still counting) on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.
"Patsy is one of those once in a lifetime artists," Hinton said. "She could
take a song and completely make it her own. She has one of the most distinctive
styles and voices I have ever heard, and I daresay there won't soon be another
artist with her kind of influence and staying power. When we first began the
discussions of just who we should approach to be a part of this tribute album,
we didn't have to look far. Once word got out, our phones began ringing. This
is a true testament to Patsy's worldwide influence - her music knows no
boundaries, or genre limitations."
"The beauty of Patsy's music is that it transcends all boundaries," he
continued. "When I heard Diana Krall's take of "Crazy", I literally got chill
bumps. She did it the Diana Krall way - putting her own special spin and
touches to the song. Each of the artists has done this - taken a Patsy song,
and recorded it in their own inimitable style. This record is going to be
something music fans truly will appreciate."
"Remembering Patsy" will feature 12 tracks, and the previously mentioned
artists are just a part of the total lineup that will be featured on the final
recording. Additional artists will be announced throughout the coming months.
MCA Nashville is a division of the Universal Music Group. Named Label of the
Decade by both Billboard and Radio and Records (1990-2000), MCA Nashville is
home to some of music's most dynamic, creative and successful artists. From the
beginning, the label created an environment that embraced a diverse cross
section of country music, from cutting edge to bluegrass to pure country. Its
artists have found success on all popular music charts, both domestically and
Jennifer Bohler or Leslie Kellner
April 2002: Information from Todd Jeffries:
"Due to increased interest locally and at
my web site, and due the nature of
the prints being a limited-edition, not to mention being authorized by
Patsy's estate, an honor which is conferred very sparingly world-wide, the
current low price of $155.00 will expire on Monday, May 13th. This leaves
only 18 days for folks to take advantage of this Mother's Day special on the
prints before they return to their market value of $350.00 each! That's a
savings of over 50% for this limited time only! We're pleased to announce
that the Patsy Cline prints recently helped raise $1,000 in an auction
hosted by Rhubarb Jones of Atlanta's Eagle 106.7 FM to benefit The Leukemia
and Lymphoma Society!" Thanks, Todd!

"Harlan Howard, the songwriter behind such Country Music classics as
Patsy Cline's 'I Fall To Pieces', Ray Price's 'Heartaches By The
Number', and many others, passed away in Nashville on the 3rd. The
following is his obituary from the March 4 issue of 'The Tennessean'."
March 2002: Todd Jeffries, an artist who has made
two graphite portraits of Patsy, has sent me this information:
"Well, in the months since I first contacted you, I have been working
diligently to make prints of my portraits available to fans. I've had the
pleasure of speaking to Charlie by phone. I was honored to receive approval
from the Estate to have a Limited Edition of 300 giclee prints made from each
of the two portraits I drew. And this past Monday evening, I got to meet
Charlie for dinner in Chattanooga, where I presented him with a framed set of
the prints I've had made. I am happy to say that after several months of hard
work, I have established a web site where fans can go to purchase these fine
art prints, which are now Authorized by the Estate of Patsy Cline! The prints
measure 16x20 inches, and are printed on the finest quality, 100% Rag Cotton,
Sommerset Archival Stock Paper. Each prints is numbered and signed by the
artist, which would be me, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity. These
are fine-quality prints, not just your average poster-type print. They will
have to be shipped in flat mailers, as to roll them up and ship in tubes would
ruin them. You can visit my site at
