And Saluda is in its winning season as time races through the year and fall is upon us. The splendor of fall in the mountains will bring thousands to the area to see the breath-taking colors of fall foliage. As the cooler weather ignites the change of color in the leaves, dry leaves are already beginning to fall after a hot, dry summer. Acorns and hickory nuts clattering through trees are keeping up with falling leaves while squirrels swiftly gather them up for winter storage.

E-Blasts Sign Up From time to time, activities and events happen in Saluda spontaneously or need a reminder so you don't miss it. When this occurs, Saluda Lifestyles would like to let you know about it. If you want to receive E-Blasts from Saluda Lifestyles, please send an email to and ask to be added.

Saludians are also canning and storing away locally grown summer vegetables to enjoy this winter. As summer time chipped away, and Autumn serenades us with its melody of color, Saludians wonder “where did the time go.” If time is our playing field, then we are in the fourth quarter and it has been said that “time flies when you are having fun.”

Time didn’t pass Saluda by; we asked it to go around.” Author unknown

A period of time in which so much was happening, so fast, that those of us who lived through it sometimes wonder how we made it. Their music will bring back the feeling and memories of those days-not only through music, but also through their visual techniques that were relevant in that period. No alcoholic beverages. Bring your chairs, blankets, picnic and cooler and enjoy music in the park on a Sunday afternoon. Rain or shine event. If rain, concerts may move to pavilion.

Saluda Living In Place To Sponsor Free Fish Fry On October 15Reservations by October 5 Following the success of our health fair on September 8, the Saluda Living in Place Committee, which is now a committee of the Saluda Center, is sponsoring a Fish Fry on Saturday, October 15, from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Saluda Center, 64 Greenville St. in Saluda.

The Saluda Living in Place is a new committee with the purpose of bringing the community together to help all of us stay in our homes as long as we can as we grow older. Our purpose is two-fold: to provide fun and productive activities to keep our minds and bodies healthy and active, and to provide resources to support both. “Enhancing the lives of seniors living in place through access to services and health care, entertainment, opportunities for education and social activities, and opportunities for


volunteering, we can create a vision of hope for our seniors and strengthen our community.” Please encourage your friends and neighbors to attend the fish fry, and we hope to see you on October 15.

Saluda’s Downtown Streets Need Your Help! If you have walked Main Street Saluda recently, then you know that the sidewalks downtown are desperately in need of repair. The 50+ year-old once beautiful, northern red maple trees that line the sidewalks have lived way past their life span and need replacing. Since beautifying downtown is one of the goals for the Saluda Downtown Foundation, it has taken on a demonstration project of helping the city by raising funds for sidewalk furnishings for a portion of Main Street. The goal

Have You Seen This Strange Figure on Main Street If you have walked up and down Main Street in Saluda, then you probably saw this handsome conductor standing in front of a store with his hand out! Named after the


heroic engineer who survived a crash on the Saluda Grade and who came up with the idea of the safety tracks, Mr. Pit is helping the Saluda Downtown Foundation to collect money to help with the improvements on Main Street sidewalks. Next time you encounter Mr. Pit, and his hand is out, give him your pocket change. Every little bit will help move us down the track and closer to our goal. Saluda Downtown Foundation

Saluda Center News (All events and activities take place at the Saluda Center on Greenville Street.) For information about renting the facility, please call 828-749-9245. The Saluda Center Book Club will meet on Thurs., Oct. 6 at 2 pm to discuss Luncheon of the Boating Party by Susan Vreeland. Instantly recognizable, Auguste Renoir's masterpiece depicts a gathering of his real friends enjoying a summer Sunday on a café terrace along the Seine near Paris. A wealthy painter, an art collector, an Italian journalist, a war hero, a celebrated actress, and Renoir's future wife, among others, share this moment of la vie moderne, a time when social constraints were loosening and Paris was healing after the Franco-Prussian War. Parisians were bursting with a desire for pleasure and a yearning to create something extraordinary out of life. Renoir shared these urges and took on this most challenging project at a time of personal crises in art and love, all the while facing issues of loyalty and the diverging styles that were tearing apart the Impressionist group. Narrated by Renoir and seven of the models and using settings in Paris and on the Seine, Vreeland illuminates the gusto, hedonism, and art of the era. With a gorgeous palette of vibrant, captivating characters, she paints their lives, loves, losses, and triumphs in a brilliant portrait of her own.

Bringing Dracula to Life in Saluda after 100 Years Dacre Stoker, great-grand nephew of Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, will present two multimedia presentations: the first, Stoker on Stoker, the Mysteries behind the Writing of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, and the second, A Modern Day Tour of Transylvania to investigate the inseparable connection between the real Prince Vlad Dracula lll and literature’s Count Dracula. Dacre will also be available at the depot to sell and sign copies of his sequel Dracula: The Un-Dead.

Published in 2009, the sequel was released and written by Dacre Stoker and screenwriter, Ian Holt. Along with their research, the book is based on Bram Stoker's own handwritten notes for characters and plot threads taken from the original edition. The release of this book was Dacre Stoker’s debut as a writer. Dacre Stoker‘s compelling and informative presentation weaves together the details of Dracula’s history with Stoker family history, and Bram Stoker’s life in Dublin and London, then separates fact from popular fiction....revealing the truth about all things Stoker and Dracula. Customized to appeal to high school and university groups, Gothic scholars, vampire fans, or history buffs, Stoker on Stoker has fascinated audiences around the world by exploring the issues behind the mysteries that have baffled Dracula scholars and fans since the book’s publication in 1897. Stoker’s multimedia presentation Stoker on Stoker will be at the Saluda Historic Depot on Saturday, October 15 starting at 6:30pm. Dacre’s second presentation A Modern Day Tour of Transylvania will be on Sunday, October 16 with a book signing at 1pm by Dacre Stoker and the presentation at 1:30pm to 3pm. Tickets are $10/person and includes libations for the Saturday presentation. There are a limited number of seats available so organizers suggest purchasing tickets or reserving seats early. “There will be a Low Country Boil Benefit and a free Fish Fry in Saluda that Saturday afternoon at the Green River Brew and Saluda Center so folks can eat before coming to the show,” says organizer Cathy Jackson. “It will be a great day to appreciate Saluda’s benevolence,” says Cathy. “This was a popular event last year and the depot was packed so we had to do two presentations to accommodate everyone. This year


we will have accommodation arrangements for everyone to be seated comfortably, says chairperson, Judy Ward. This event replaces our regular Saluda Train Tales for the month of October and is a perfect experience to put you in the Halloween spirit,” says Judy. Tickets are on sale and available at Thompson’s Store, Saluda Historic Depot, or Beverly-Hanks Saluda office. Reservations can be made by calling 828-7492321. Books, Dracula t-shirts, and posters will be available for sale. Thanks to Dacre Stoker’s generosity, all proceeds from the event will go toward the fundraising efforts to fund the recent purchase of the train depot.

Saluda Community Library Teen Scene 6th-12th graders are invited for free snacks and activities at the Saluda Library every Monday at 4pm!

October 10: Nintendo Wii U Free Play Play fun games like Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers! October 17: Makey Makey Workshop What is Makey Makey? Turn the whole world into a keyboard. It’s a simple invention kit for doing art, engineering, and everything in between. How does it work? Clip two objects to the Makey Makey. For example, you and a banana. When you touch the banana, the computer just thinks a keyboard key is being pressed, so you can type a letter, jump in a video game, take a picture, or play some music. What can I create? Make a banana piano, play Mario on a play dough game pad, take a selfie of your cat every time she drinks water. How? First, load up a computer program or any webpage. Let’s say you load up a piano. Then,

instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook the Makey Makey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys. October 24: Nintendo Wii U Just Dance Tournament Who is the best dancer of them all? Test your skills and win a prize!

Property Security Checks and more from Meanwhile, Back in Saluda! As the old saying goes "When the cat's away, the mice will play" but in some cases it is rats! The two legged "rats" can take advantage of an empty vacation home during the week and especially over the winter months. Property Security Checks are important for more reasons than just checking the water pipes or bringing in mail. At Meanwhile, Back in Saluda, we have fourteen years experience helping out-of-town property owners with their Saluda homes. During one Security Check, we found a back door removed and a drifter camping out in the basement including the use of the wood stove! In another home, we discovered a distant relative had moved into the vacation home without asking the owner! More often, we find doors unlocked or windows left open accidentally, electricity out due to power surges, trees or limbs down in the yard and trash or mail in the yard that did not belong there. Call us at 828749-2480 and ask for more information about the Property Security Checks. Or email to:

smiling at his discovery. Another lady found a print depicting the little café where she had dined in Switzerland, and I even received some dishes with pink carnations on them that reminded me of my grandmother’s favorite flower. I guess that is what makes a resale/consign shop special, the whimsy and the nostalgia of our childhood or travel. Also, the children have fun buying a toy or cute bear as their treasures. We seem to be overrun with ponies at the moment, and one that sings and bats her eyes is my favorite (yes I play with her).

Autumn in Mountain Air I drink up autumn like rich wine at the banquet. I am anxious for the season of squirrels rediscovering their hickory nuts. I will walk through dry leaves while pumpkins ripen in the fields. I will seduce ripe apples from the fulsome trees laden with fresh fruit. I will taste the freshness of tomatoes again and remember spring. I will lift dark potatoes from the earth thank the God of creation. In Autumn, I will fill up the bucket with the bounty of the season, then write “cornucopia” upon my last will and testament And wait anxiously for Spring --Bob Hartje, 1989

Stories & Such I Remember Saluda By Charles O. Hearon, Jr. Stories reprinted from I Remember Saluda, a Storytelling with permission of Charles O. Hearon, III, son of author Charles O. Hearon, Jr. (aka Charlie "C. Boy"). This book is currently in print and available at the Saluda Historic Depot.

Honeymoon My lovely wonderful wife, Frances Hedrick Savarese at Tampa, Florida, and I got married on October 19, 1940. I worked for Eastern Airlines and had arranged my vacation for that time. We spent a week at Indian Rock at Haven Beach, south of St. Petersburg and Clearwater, on the gulf coast. We then flew "free" to Spartanburg, and I had to show my bride the mountains. We used a car my Daddy let us have and I took off with my "woman" and went to see the hills. There was a family named Raines living in Jackie Thompson's cabin then. The Goforths had moved up to Clint Johnson's house on Cove Mountain. We had quarters at Hidden Well and I showed her about. One day I wanted her to see the bathtub and we walked down the road that way and when we got about to the spring house, Mrs. Raines came out to see Charlie's bride. I introduced her proudly and Mrs. Raines said to my little bride, "Honey, I done heard you shook hands with bad luck." That kinda' took my little bride and she was not too excited about the bathtub. When we got back to Hidden Well, we needed a fire and I built us one. It can get cold around Saluda late in October, especially

if you're trying to honeymoon in an old rambling summer house. We stayed the night and it was cold, but not as cold as the time Samuel Jervey DuPre and I were there, and she was a whole lot better company. We flew back to Tampa and started the best years of my life. We all signed up for the draft; I believe it was about a week after we got back to Tampa. I never got drafted, our jobs with the airlines made us exempt. I've never been in the military; all I've ever done for my country was to pay taxes and I'm proud to do that.

A Witch for All Seasons By Cappy Hall Rearick “Eve nibbled on the apple because the serpent promised it would make her smart. If he had said, ‘It will erase your fine wrinkles,’ she would have buzzed through that Tree of Knowledge like a beaver.” ~Author Paula Wall Father Time is my beauty consultant. “Think of wrinkles as underdeveloped dimples,” he told me. My friend Betty, however, lives to scrutinize my face as if she’s on a mission from God. Convinced of her divine calling, she wakes up each morning praying for an opportunity to pinpoint my imperfections. “You need a nip and tuck,” she said yesterday. “That sort of thing,” I said, “like marriage, should not be entered into unadvisedly or lightly.” She widened her eyes as far as her recent Botox injections would allow. Betty’s baby blues get worked more often than a penciled-in crossword puzzle. “Girl, did you forget to pay your brain bill? Time is not your

friend. That lucky old sun turns you into a Maxine clone.” Miz Southern Big Hair tossed her teased, sprayed and overprocessed blonde locks and then grabbed a wad of mine. “A woman’s hair is her crowning glory but yours should be attached to a Halloween mask.” Maybe my face looks like a map of Calcutta and maybe it’s time to swap Babe’s rusty dog clippers for a professional haircut, but a girl has to draw the line somewhere. “Ouch,” I whined. “Stop yanking my hair, Betty, or I won’t be the only one in need of a surgeon.” Betty’s snide Halloween remark brought up a memory I’d like to forget. A teenager dressed like a skank on The Real Housewives of Atlanta came to my house Trick or Treating last year. After an uncharitable glance, she asked where I bought my costume. I wasn’t wearing one. She stopped texting long enough to exclaim, “Like phat! You are like so bland? Like that dreary wig is so UN-chung, so howling. Like, you know, so yesterday?” I told the skank to wait and then I raced though the house in search of something sharp to bury inside her freakin’ candy apple. But back to Betty Botox. Since her last treatment, she wears a fixed smile as if she recently discovered multiple orgasms. Her eyebrows are tattooed below a transplanted widow’s peak and now even her grandkids don’t recognize her. “Look,” I said, “the truth is Babe doesn’t want me to get any work done.” That was a lie, but if I wake up wearing a Clarabella the Clown grin like Betty’s, Babe will make me wear a burqa to bed. Mama didn’t raise stupid children. Betty’s overworked eyes stared at me like I was speaking in tongues. “Why did you ask Babe about it? He’s a man. They don’t get it.” Betty’s recently implanted cheeks looked like over-ripe tomatoes. Longing for Audrey


Hepburn cheekbones, she took a little trip to Implants-R-Us and wound up looking like Alvin the Chipmunk. You get what you pay for. “When Babe opens his eyes in the morning he likes to recognize the drooling woman in bed with him.” Miss Southern Big Hair snorted like a horse and shook her mop of bottled blonde hair. “Only one thing left for me to say.” She sighed with more melodrama than Hepburn could have mustered up if her skinny tush was on fire. “Make friends with that Kim Kardashian wannabe before next Halloween or she’ll recognize you.” “So what?” Betty gave me a look. “Have you been sniffing Babe’s aftershave or what? You put that child through a bunch of trauma.” Tossing my limp head of hair, I tried to look offended. “Her meltdown was not my fault. I did not put anything in her apple. I only thought about it.” “Then why did she hotfoot it down the street as if the Prince of Darkness was chasing her? Word got around.” I fluffed my uncolored, unconditioned hair, forced a smile on my wrinkled face and hoped my unbleached teeth took focus away from my vertical lip lines. I batted my droopy eyes while my oversized, hot pink nose twitched like a bitch-kitty. “I’m growing old gracefully.” Betty blew air through her over-puffed lips, rolled her overtaut eyes and shook her overbleached hair. “FYI. Aging gracefully became a No-No when Baby Boomers hit forty and invented the computer, collagen and Botox.” “Boomers invented computers?” She sighed. “You’re hopeless. I might as well drink this martini.” “Well, all right. Martinis make my wrinkles look like undeveloped dimples.” “They do not,” she said. “Drink up, girlfriend. Two of these puppies and you’ll see for yourself.”
