April 28, 2010 By: Jacob Harris Sentinel Writer Nashville based duo, Trees Leave graced the stage of the Peacock Playhouse this past weekend with an acoustic affair. The dynamic duo includes Cobi Ferguson and Wyatt Espalin, initially from Clay County. They were joined on stage with a backing drummer of whom met them on the next level aesthetically. Wyatt Espalin referred to their sound as Americana/Folk. This sound was embellished with the uniquely surprising use of the fiddle, mandolin, and banjo. The talented musicians were quite the crowd-pleaser as they performed music from both their previous album as well as the newest collection of songs titled "The Gospel of Hurt". This newest album remains close to the

roots of their Bluegrass and Folk sound, but also brings in an element of pop to the lineup. In my opinion, their lyrics could be compared to that of Ryan Adams and Matt Kearney. Wyatt quoted "they're filled with tragedy and heartbreak, but we're not as deep as we look". I beg to differ, for I saw the genius in the words that really took you by the heart and amazed you with irony and wit. Amongst the lineup of original songs, the duo performed a Lucinda Williams cover. It was she whom they said deserved the honor of being their biggest influence. You can buy the new album "The Gospel of Hurt" on their website www.treesleavemusic.com, as well as on iTunes.

Shiloh Stables hosts annual 4-H Club horse show By: Ann Doran Sentinel Writer Shiloh Stables of Hayesville hosted the annual 4-H Club horse show Saturday, April 24 in Hayesville.This year's show honored Nora Starks, one of the Riders' earliest members, who was killed in an auto accident last year. Shannon Colelman of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service directed the event. The competition drew teens and guests from Clay, Cherokee, Union and Towns counties. Before the show began, riders warmed up or sat mounted, waiting their turn, while about 60 onlookers milled around or sat in the stands. The green rolling setting of Shiloh Stables, formerly the Shepherd chicken farm, boasts ample barn and stables, two indoor riding rings and outdoor paddocks. Pre-show, two young sister-andbrother riders, Autumn (11) and Lazarus (nine) Carswell of Murphy posed in front of a haystack. They were spectators for this day. However, Autumn stated excitedly that she would be able to compete in barrel racing next year. Two sisters from Andrews, Emily and Erin Duggan, were saddled up and waiting on their horses, who

stood quietly. They were both riding in the Western class. Class categories ranged from "Stick Pony" to "Hunter Walk Jr. and Sr." to "Western Pleasure Walk Jr. and Sr." to "Cloverleaf Barrels" with more classes in between total-

ling 44 event classes on the day's program. The bustling registration desk just outside the main ring was manned by two riders' moms from Murphy. "Everyone loved Nora Starks," stated one between receiving paper-

to learn and continue to learn." Nora's mother, Jan Griggs of Murphy, originated the group, in the early 2000's. Bob Massey, an early club supporter along with his wife Marilyn, opened the show with a prayer of

thanks and a tribute to Nora Starks set to a gospel song with a single rider on horseback act. Then the crowd turned festive, as the horses and their riders began what they had seriously been practicing for.

4-H PLEDGE

I pledge my head to clearer thinking. My heart to greater loyalty. My hands to larger service, and my health to better living. For my club, my community, my country and my world. Experience the “Fire” of the African djembe,(drum), on May 15th at 7:30 p.m. at the Peacock Playhouse in Hayesville, NC. These master drummers and dancers share with you the fire of the djembe program with authentic instruments, music, dance, and drama that bring this African spectacle to life. This unforgettable performance displays the vibrancy of the many different African rhythms. Songs and dances are choreographed to tell meaningful stories. Spectators will be in awe as the performers seem to fly through the air with swirling raffia skirts and headdresses. The drums, dances, songs, and stories will carry you across the colorful spectrum of the entire African continent. Baba and Mama Shabu established this group nearly 20 years ago, performing and studying all over Africa. With the addition of their children, they have been working on building a bridge between Africa and us. The group’s form of artistry, Ngoma, “the rhythmic thread,” combines drumming, singing, dancing, and visual arts together in a meaningful whole. Acclaimed for their ability to engage and communicate with all ages, races, and abilities, you will find yourself being called to join the performers in a celebration of African culture.

It’s been said that there are three kinds of people, those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened. There are two other kinds as well, those who think everything is a conspiracy, and those who see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil. Then of course there are those of us who are aware of what’s going on around us, which is the theme of our film for today. Jeff Jeffries ( Jimmy Stewart), a daring and intrepid news photographer, is laid up with a broken leg received as result of a racing wreck that he got a spectacular picture from. With nothing to do but sit around in his wheelchair all day, he develops an interest in activities of his neighbors. His caregiver, Stella (Thelma Ritter), warns him that he shouldn’t be spying on his neighbors. If he keeps doing that, he’s going to wind up in trouble.

ON NASCAR

Not so silly By: Cathy Elliott Columnist In keeping with the global climate craziness we’ve been experiencing of late, Silly Season has come early this year. For as long as I've been a fan of NASCAR, I have believed the term "Silly Season" was actually coined by our sport. The name has typically been used to describe roughly the second half of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, when teams and sponsors and even auto manufacturers begin the process of realigning themselves for the following year. In years past, it was the time when Hendrick Motorsports would announce the addition of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. to its driver lineup, for example, or Tony Stewart would officially reveal the creation of Stewart-Haas Racing. Falling into the trap of thinking the world revolves around one's own particular interests can prove you wrong in a hurry. Silly Season, as it

For the eleventh year, Pat Knoechel has traveled from California to North Georgia to teach new methods of quilting to the Misty Mountain Quilters Guild. Over one hundred members, representing five counties in Georgia and North Carolina, attended the lecture and demonstration. Ms. Knoechel presented the newest book which she co-authored with her also famous sister, Eleanor Burns.

turns out, is a phrase that has been in use since the 1800s. It is a mediabased term that refers to the period of time starting in mid to late summer when "frivolous" news stories start popping up. In the media business, summer is the slowest time of year for hard news. School is out, the legislature is not in session and, in our hemisphere at least, everyone is on vacation. You really have to scramble around to find things to write about, which is great for folks like the guy up the street who grew a giant squash, because suddenly, he's front-page news. Over the years, maybe NASCAR has been a little bit like that. SpeedWeeks and the jockeying-for-position frenzy of the early months of the season consume everyone, but then things kind of shake out, settle down, and we start looking around to see what else is going on, both now and in the months to come. The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup has expedited this process somewhat. The 10-race format has created kind of a “season within a season,� and although they can still win races, effectively the year is over for all but 12 Sprint Cup Series drivers. Since they have no hope of win-

sitting in his apartment dressed much more casually and reading a camping magazine. This movie is one of the few that Raymond Burr played the bad guy in, and he is very convincing. Grace Kelly, as always, does the beautiful blonde, a stock ingredient in Hitchcock films. Thelma Ritter is wonderful as the loquacious caregiver. You can be sure she’s going to pass on any information she receives. The film didn’t win any awards, but it has gained a following over the years. It was remade in 1998 for TV with Christopher Reeves as a paraplegic and Daryl Hannah as his girlfriend. Today we give a reel memories salute to Alfred Hitchcock and the crew of Rear Window (1954). William V. Reynolds is the author of “Murder in the Okefenokee� available at McCaysville Public Market and Pat’s Country Kitchen in McCaysville; Parris Pharmacy, The Book Nook and Ingles in Blue Ridge; Book Nook in Blairsville; and Phillips and Lloyd in Hayesville.

ning a championship in the current season, they become even more eager to find a way to come back and win one next year. Let the games begin. This year, however, we had barely recovered from the Daytona 500 before the fur started flying. Kasey Kahne fired the first significant shot across the bow, with the announcement that he had signed a contract with Hendrick Motorsports and would be leaving Richard Petty Motorsports at the end of the 2010 season. While still digesting that piece of news, NASCAR Nation learned of some upcoming changes at Penske Racing. Shell/Pennzoil will leave its longtime partnership with Richard Childress Racing at the end of 2010 and move to Penske, sponsoring the new No. 22 Dodge to be driven by Kurt Busch next year. Brad Keselowski will fill the seat of the No. 2 Miller Lite car. “The key words are solidifying our future and giving some validity to our program. Obviously when you have rotating sponsors every week, there's some confusion that goes with that, not just with the fans but also with the team itself,� Keselowski said on the day of the announcement.

“So to be able to look the guys in the eye and tell them that's what we are going to do next year and see their faces and see how excited they were about it, to know that there's ... a solid future ahead, for not just me but for everyone on my team, that's so very important.� Over at RCR, the future of Kevin Harvick, current driver of the No. 29 Shell/Pennzoil Chevy, is not quite so settled in. Harvick is left with a contract that expires at the end of this season and an abdicating sponsor. The changes leave a couple of major sponsors hanging, namely Budweiser, the current sponsor of Kahne’s No. 9 Ford, and Mobil 1, sponsor of Penske Racing’s third car, the No. 77. That car is currently driven by Sam Hornish, Jr., whose contract is -- you guessed it -- up for renewal at the end of this year. Confused yet? Just wait. The summer still lies before us, and with all these big names bouncing around, we still may not know the identity of the guy who will ultimately be responsible for NASCAR’s biggest squash of the season. Obviously, with millions of dollars and some of NASCAR’s premier talent, teams and sponsors at stake, Silly Season is anything but.

Meanwhile Jeff ’s lovely fiancÊ, Lisa Carol Fremont (Grace Kelly), comes to visit him and he begins to tell her that he thinks something suspicious is going on across the courtyard. Finally he talks her into helping him determine why his neighbor’s wife is absent. Lisa takes an awful chance going to the apartment across the way to try and find evidence that she might have been murdered. Meanwhile, another neighbor’s dog keeps digging at something in the courtyard. Mysteriously, the little dog is found dead and we’re not quite sure what he’s after. Finally Jeffries calls his neighbor and lets him know that he believes he has murdered his wife. This leads to a confrontation between Jeffries and Lars Thornwald (Raymond Burr). Unable to reach any kind of weapon, Jeffries uses flashbulbs with his camera in an attempt to blind Thornwald. The police arrived in the nick of time, but Thornwald manages to push Jeffries off the balcony of his apartment. In the final scene we see that Jeffries now has two broken legs and his lovely girlfriend is

JOURNAL OF A LIVING LADY #370

Coming alive again

By: Nancy White Kelly Columnist

The dogwoods are blossoming. I am coming alive again after a seemingly long, depressing gray winter. Friends are helping. One special couple took Buddy and me to a rousing musical in Franklin to celebrate our 45th anniversary. Another friend, with Buddy’s blessing, will soon be taking me bass fishing on Lake Chatuge. This reminds me of childhood days. My daddy would awaken me at three a.m., throw some minnows in a rusty bucket and head to Lake Tunica in Mississippi. He could have taken any of my three brothers, but he took me. My daddy and I were always close, but our fishing adventures strengthened that bond. Catching fish was sort of irrelevant. Being with my jovial father as the sun rose

at daybreak is the fond memory that remains. My oldest brother Charles is the family fishing fanatic. His love of fishing comes in a close second to his enthusiasm for hunting. In his living room, dining room, and every other room wife number five permits hang trophies from years of fishing and hunting. Actually he has married only four women. One he married twice. The last one, a keeper for twenty years, obviously loves my brother dearly.

I asked her once how many more animals Charles would have to hang in the house before she threw him out. She said she didn’t know for sure, but that the experiment was almost complete. Everybody loves Charles. He is a comedian on par with the late Jerry Clower. He entertains us all with exaggerated tales from his fishing and hunting escapades. And, of course, he has a huge repertoire of jokes. This is one of many. Two fellows are out fishing on the lake. A hearse and funeral procession passed the boat on a nearby road. One of the fellows stood up and held his fishing hat over his heart as the hearse passed. His buddy commented, "Golly, Harry, that was really nice and respectful." Harry replied, "Well after all, we were married for 40 years." E-mail the author at nancyk@ windstream.net

Sandy Nicolette and Mike Thompson (far right) accept the donation from Bruce Hoening of Snap-On Tools. Snap-On Community Volunteer Staff members pictured from L to R are Lisa Boehm, Regina Anderson, Betsy Miles, Rose Jones, Angela Forrest, Randy Thomas, and Jennifer Caldwel

Snap-On Tools of Murphy, North Carolina, recently set the bar high when they made a financial donation to the Georgia Mountain Research and Education Center. They not only committed their money but their time. Members of their Community Involvement Committee actually went into Murphy Elementary School and Ranger Elementary where they assisted Education Committee members with the teaching of their first grade bird program. This is the first professional organization to make such a commitment. Cherokee County should be proud to have such a business in their community. Snap-on, Incorporated is one of the largest and most successful manufacturers of power tools in the United States. In October of 2002 the Sioux Tools facility located in Sioux City, Iowa was relocated to Murphy, North Carolina. In 2006 the Murphy facility received the North Carolina Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Award for workforce

development. Today the facility not only manufactures the Sioux branded industrial power tools but also Snap-on branded power tools. Snap-onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision is to build an enduring manufacturing footprint in Murphy by providing a broad offering of high-quality professional power tools. Snap-on has established a Community Involvement Team, and their aim is to enhance their long-term prospects for growth by investing in and giving back to our community. The Education Committee is part of the Community Council at the G.M.R.E. Center. The Community Council was founded in 2003 for the purpose of enhancing the mission of the G.M.R.E. Center. The council emphasizes education, outreach and preservation. Last year, 2,700 students in Union, Fannin, and Towns County in Georgia and Clay County in North Carolina attended programs at the Center.

Acting from Above

Sherlene Dillon from Clayton (GA) presented a program to basket weavers after the April 14th membership meeting of the Shooting Creek Basket Weavers Guild. Sherlene and her husband Stephen owned an antique store in Clayton, specializing in antiques dating back to the pre-Revolutionary War era. Sherleneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area of expertise is native American Indian baskets. She explained to the members that how a basket is constructed may help to determine what tribe wove the basket. If someone is interested in collecting such baskets she recommended several books to help in their education. She

provided the membership with great information which she illustrated with baskets that she sells locally and on the Internet. Sherlene is very knowledgeable about American Indian baskets and was glad to share this with local basket weavers. The Shooting Creek Basket Weavers Guild meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month (meeting at 10:00 followed by a weaving project) at the Shooting Creek (NC) Community Room (Fire Department). For further information, visit the website at www.shootingcreekbasketweavers.com.

Locals celebrate EARTH DAY Crane Creek Vineyards By: Jacob Harris Sentinel Writer Crane Creek Vineyards hosted the 2nd Annual Earth Day Celebration this past Saturday. Although mother earth showered the event with rain, a large crowd gathered to enjoy and educate the importance of nature at its best. According to Grace Howard of Crank Creek Vineyards, they have been working proactively in the local community to support efforts in protecting the Earth. They have been been active in raising awareness and interest within the local high schools of the importance of agriculture in the area. Along with Crane Creek, many local organizations gathered to share their expertise in a wide variety of environmental fields. Throughout the day a number of workshops were coordinated by these professional individuals to share their current projects and educate others of the importance of environmental safety and protection. David Kuykendall of the US Forest Service briefed me of the efforts being made by the local department of agriculture.

The US Forest, being such a broadbased organization enforces and overlooks all aspects of environmental forestry, ranging from recreational precautions, conservation of resources, and informing the community of their responsibilities while using or living near National Forest Service land. Their display at the event focused on the benefits of bats in the area. There are many bats in the SouthEastern US that are federally threatened or endangered. These gentle, sophisticated mammals are not "creepy" creatures said to alight in women's hair or carry diseases. Few know that bats are beneficial and ideal as back yard "bug zappers". A colony of 30 bats can consume up to 90,000 mosquitos per night. Callie Moore, Executive Director of the Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition spoke about the watershed action stodgy focused around Lake Nottley. Studies have shown that there is a high concentration of algae drainage. They are making efforts piece by piece to correct the problems. The main focus of the project has been around Butternut Creek.

The Native Plant Rescue focus their attention preserving natural heritage through native plants and wildflowers. They use trained volunteers to identity native plants at building and construction sites. They make every effort to ensure that the plants can be preserved on site or moved to a safe location. Most impressive was the endeavors of the youth at Young Harris College. These bright teams of individuals are coming together to proactively make a great difference in the environment and spread the word and hard work to a new generation of activists. They are working directly hands-on to enforce recycling, saving the hemlocks, and working with a unique organization, Roots and Shoots. Roots and Shoots is an organization started by 16 Tanzanian students and Dr. Jane Goodall in Uganda, Africa. YHC has become greatly active in this organization to conduct service projects and support to improve the lives of animals, people, and our planet Earth! Crane Creek Vineyards was pleased to have a great turnout of visitors for the event although the weather wasn't exactly ideal. They raised a satisfactory amount of money for the organizations present, and everyone really enjoyed themselves while supporting a great cause.

Murphy Elementary School Murphy Elementary School children celebrating earth day by planting of the Riverwalk Trail. Below is a caption that I wrote for this picture. . If you have any questions contact me, John Strawn or Pam Strawn at 828/837-7921. The two people leading the planting is Pam Strawn and Nancy Troxler. To celebrate "Earth Day" Angela McClure's 5th grade science class at Murphy Elementary School did some planting on the Riverwalk Trail. The two classes planted over 80 native ferns and a few other native plants at three locations on the trail. The class has been discussing the importance of our native plants in various ecosystems of our area. Volunteers for the Riverwalk Trail, Pam and John Strawn and Nancy Troxler, assisted in demonstrating the proper planting techniques and getting the plants for the project. The Riverwalk Trail is a community project that is also being used as an environmental classroom.

Young Harris College Young Harris College hosted a special day of service on Saturday, April 24, to celebrate Earth Day, which was Thursday, April 22. The event was co-sponsored by The Bonner Leaders, Office of Religious Life, Office of Campus Activities, YHC’s chapter of Roots and Shoots, the YHC sustainability coordinator’s office and the Student Government Association. YHC students, faculty and staff planted 10 apple and pear trees and eight blueberry bushes on an acre of land at the YHC farm. The YHC chapter of Roots & Shoots purchased the fruit trees and bushes from Nelson ACE Hardware in Blairsville, Ga., at a reduced cost. The Earth Day of Service concluded with a dinner featuring musical group Cornbread Ted and the Butterbeans, composed of Art Department Chair and Associate Professor of Art Ted Whisenhunt, Assistant Professor of Philosophy Dr. Jamie Watson, and their wives, Dr. Eloise Whisenhunt and Darlena Watson. Also in connection with the Earth Day celebration, the Office of Religious Life hosted “Theology of Ecology,” a special Earth Day chapel service by Rev. Alan Jenkins from Earth Covenant Ministry on Wednesday, April 21, at the Enotah Hall Amphitheatre. This event was funded by the SGA Green Fee initiative in which students pay $5 each year to fund sustainability efforts at the College.
