“People have really gravitated to the idea of connecting with the people who grow what they are eating and that’s exciting.” North Carolina recorded 217 markets this past year. California came in on top of the list with 729 markets. “The remarkable growth in farmers markets is an excellent indicator of the staying power of local and regional foods,” Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan said in a release. “These outlets provide economic benefits for producers to grow their businesses and also to communities by providing increased access to fresh fruits and vegetables and other foods. In short, they are a critical ingredient in our nation’s food system.” More than 1,000 new farmers markets were recorded across the country this year, indicating a 17 percent growth rate. The USDA’s 2011 National Farmers

Market Directory indicates a total of 7,175 farmers markets operate throughout the United States as more farmers are marketing their products directly to consumers. “It used to be kind of more of a fad and got confused a bit with the organic food movement,” Sprague said. “But more people are saying they at least want to know where their food is coming from and that it’s not from Chile or somewhere else where it has to travel 3,000 miles to get here.” Last year, the USDA reported 6,132 markets. Alaska and Texas ranked at the top for most growth in farmers markets at 46 and 38 percent, respectively. Sprague said in terms of North Carolina, there has been a lot more energy behind the growth of farmers markets in urban areas like Raleigh-Durham and Chapel Hill. But he said some of the smaller communities have also jumped on board. “What’s kind of unique here is that we’re not an urban core, but we still have a thriving market,”

Sprague said. “We have a lot of retirees who have moved here that keep up a solid market. They seek out the markets because many of them don’t necessarily know a farmer to grab squash from when

it comes into season. So it creates an avenue for socialization for them as well.” This week began National Farmers Market Week, which takes place Aug. 7 - Aug. 13.

with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and the Tryon Police Department also involved in the checkpoint. The vehicle stopped had one male occupant with the money hidden in manufactured compartments in the car. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have taken over the case, according to Columbus Police Chief Chris Beddingfield. Federal agents tested the money, which tested positive for cocaine, making it a drug money seizure. Beddingfield said the money returned is expected to be split in percentages to the Columbus Police Department and other agencies involved. Normally, approximately 80 percent of drug seizure money is sent back to the local agency to be used for equipment and training. “There is no question that the seized funds will dramatically help our department,” said Beddingfield. “This will allow us to replace outdated, worn equipment and purchase new equipment that jbtrees - page 10

will allow us to do more work such as this. The main goal is to provide the highest level of service to citizens and business owners of the town without a tax or budget increase.” Beddingfield said his department replaced weapons and holsters with a small money seizure earlier this year with no tax money being needed. “This is a perfect example of why the Columbus Police Department is so active with the Governors Highway Safety Program,” Beddingfield said. “Traffic enforcement keeps our town safe. At some point, all criminal activities go mobile. Whether it is stolen property from residential burglaries, drug crimes, or any other crime, that activity is eventually moved from place to place in vehicles on our roadways. The chances of catching criminals or illegal activities are much greater from a vehicle stop than actually catching them in the act.” The man carrying the money was from out of state with local officials saying they expect to release more information later on arrests and charges expected to be made through the federal investigation.

Saluda moves forward with plans for city hall restoration by Leah Justice

Saluda is moving forward with a phased out project to renovate its current city hall and police department after another building the city considered purchasing is no longer for sale. The Saluda Board of Commissioners met Monday, Aug. 8 and heard from city administrator Erny Williams who said he has begun soliciting bids for work on city hall. The city allotted $10,000 in this year’s budget to use to gain financing for the first phase of work. Williams said he is seeking bids on windows, re-mudding the brick and work on the roof. He said he is also waiting on prices for painting the front of the building and replacing metal at the bottom of the building. In June, Saluda commissioners considered purchasing the Ryan Boyle building downtown, which seemed like a cheaper option to move city hall and the police department, but following an appraisal of the building, the building is no longer available. Commissioners discussed possibilities for paying for the first phase of renovations, depending


Arthur “Chip” Jones

Arthur “Chip” Jones, 74, of Huntsville, Ala. passed away Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2011 after a long battle with cancer. He was born in Coconut Grove, Fla., and raised from the age of 4 in Tryon, N.C. He never forgot his Tryon roots. Chip served honorably in the U.S. Army. After graduating from Clemson University, he moved to Huntsville to begin his career in engineering with Thiokol. He retired from civil service with the U.S. Army Missile Command in 1992. He had many pas-

on the bids. Commissioner George Sweet said the first priority is the roof as it is leaking again, but the brick needs to be done prior to the roof. Sweet said the city may have enough money to do the first phase without financing, but it will depend on the estimates and what the budget looks like at the time. The city could borrow money from its fund balance while awaiting loan approval. In order to finance a project, local governments must first seek approval from the N.C. Local Government Commission. Earlier estimates to complete all repairs on the historic city hall, which is about 100 years old, were approximately $2,000,000. An historic preservation expert and architect estimated last year that the first phase of renovations would cost around $282,000. The building was last restored in 1986 and has since suffered from deferred maintenance, according to a preliminary conditions assessment. Continual water infiltration through the roof, masonry and sheet metal has also led to damage on the interior and damage to the structural wood framing.

sions, among which were his love, from an early age, of the North Georgia Mountains, his church, St. Stephen’s Episcopal, and his years of playing tennis. Survivors include his wife of 43 years, Peg; daughter, Ann Wallace of Huntsville; sons, Scott Jones of Huntsville, Andrew Jones and wife Talisa of Browns Summit, N.C., and Mark Jones and wife Jennifer of Pensacola, Fla.; six grandchildren; and one greatgrandson. A memorial service was held Aug. 6. at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Huntsville. Memorials may be made to St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church’s building fund, 8020 Whitesburg Drive, Huntsville, 35802.

Sharpen those pencils, open those wallets

We’ve all heard the phrase, “the children are our future.” As cliche as it may sound, it is the truth and our youth are facing difficult times right along with their cash-strapped parents. While the pinch of a down economy can be a teaching tool for all of us, it should not be a hindrance to students attempting to expand their minds. That’s why it was so encouraging to see so many come out for the back-to-school breakfast fund raiser held by the Polk County Democrats this Saturday. We imagine the same sight will come through for the Tryon United Methodist Church back-to-school event Aug. 13 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Free school supplies will be handed out to the first 100 students. Hot dogs, chips and drinks will be available free to all who attend, as well as free back-to-school haircuts. Families out there should take advantage of this community spirit and those of us who are financially fortunate enough, with kids and without, should give $5, $20, some pencils or a notebook - anything to help struggling families prepare their students for a successful year. There are many organizations that can help get supplies to kids truly in need. Do your part this summer and support education even in the smallest way. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

Comments found at From: C.R. Benson In response to: “Polk County saves $17,000 on furniture bid for DSS building” on Aug. 4. Why are we contracting Charlotte architectural firms for work in Polk County? Indeed, just their travel and expenses would be a budget credit…and the cost of living / wages between the areas? Polk County is experiencing serious unemployment concerns… and we are looking to Charlotte for

architects & furniture acquisition services? Polk County has many licensed NC architects that would love to have been privy to this work, as they have interior architects locally that have worked with Fortune 500 Companies for over 25 years in space planning & furniture Specifications. A bit taken aback that our local employees would forfeit a raise in lieu of selection of a Charlotte firm in Polk County.

Burnsville potter featured at Kathleen’s Gallery for Trot Flat Rock Playhouse Claudia Dunaway lives on 10 acres, on a dirt road, in a dry county. That is what inspires this potter from the Burnsville area of North Carolina at her studio called “Yummy Mud Puddle.” Dunaway has been a potter for more than 30 years, first working in stoneware fired in an electric kiln. She grew up in Reidsville, N.C., earned her degree in art at UNCGreensboro, then studied with Charles Counts in Rising Fawn, Ga. She lived in West Virginia, serving as an artist-in-residence for Greenbrier County, and in Fredericksburg, Va., where she taught for the Stafford County schools and maintained a pottery shop in the downtown historic district. Dunaway’s next milestone would be building and using her gas-fired kiln. The differences between the two firing methods (electric vs. gas) allowed her to achieve the greater color variations she was seeking. Using some of the same

St. Luke’s provides ways to stay safe during summer heat As summer continues to roll on, this a friendly reminder from St. Luke’s Hospital: please be careful. As many of us kicked off our summer with a trip to the beach or boating on one of the mountain lakes, it also ushers in summertime emergencies. With a 24/7 physician-staffed emergency department, St. Luke’s Hospital is a busy place with summer accidents and injuries ranging from fireworks to boating accidents. “Our ER is here if you need us, but we’d rather you play it safe,” said Dr. Alison Owens, medical director of St. Luke’s Hospital’s Emergency Department. Dr. Owens said it’s particularly important for older residents to remember they can be more susceptible to heat-induced conditions. If you have ever watched the weather forecast in the summer, you already know there is

more to the heat than just the air temperature. What matters is how hot it feels to you when you are in it. Fortunately, most meteorologists report the apparent heat, often called the Heat Index or the Heat Stress Index, as part of their weather reports. What determines the heat index? It is simply the combined effects of the air temperature and the relative humidity. Increases in either temperature or humidity raise the heat index. Let’s say it’s 90 degrees Fahrenheit outside. When the humidity stands at 30 percent, the heat index is also 90. But when the humidity reaches 50 percent, the heat index rises to 96, and at 80 percent relative humidity, this same air temperature feels like 113 degrees. The higher the heat index, the greater your risk of heat-related illnesses. With heat indices between 90 and 100, even limited activity can result in heat cramps or heat exhaustion, and even heat

stroke is possible. Between heat indices of 101 and 129, all three heat-related illnesses become likely for elderly individuals. Above a heat index of 130, heat stroke may be imminent. Don’t even think about going outside. Take the heat seriously. Besides any medical problems you might have that could be worsened by the heat, you also respond more slowly and less effectively to changes in your body temperature. You sweat less, so you cool off slower, and you don’t tend to get thirsty, so you get dehydrated without knowing it. Even before you develop serious health problems, even before your body temperature starts to rise, you may experience such heat-related illnesses as heat cramps, heat fatigue or heat syncope. More serious than those conditions are two conditions that result when the body can no

longer maintain its normal temperature. In the face of exposure to extreme heat, the body simply overheats. Two distinct types of severe heat illnesses are possible – heat exhaustion and heat stroke. For heat cramps, heat fatigue, and heat syncope stopping that activity and moving to a cooler environment are often sufficient. Particularly if you have other medical conditions, you should contact your physician for advice. Do not treat these symptoms lightly. Heat exhaustion, though not as serious as heat stroke, is a significant medical problem that requires immediate medical intervention. Untreated, heat exhaustion can progress to heat stroke. Seek immediate medical attention.In the meantime, take action. Do everything possible to move the victim (or yourself) to a cooler place and help him/ (continued on page 15)

her lie down. Give him/her water or juice and soak him/her with cool wet cloths. But do not delay getting medical attention, particularly if their symptoms progress. Heat stroke is a medical emergency. Call 9-1-1. As soon as you have removed the victim to a cooler location, apply cold water compresses or, even better; immerse him/her in cool water while waiting for EMS to arrive. Several sources can tell you what to do if a heat wave is predicted and what to do to protect yourself. Stay out of the heat. Reduce your activities. Drink plenty of cool liquids. And, finally, don’t mix heat and alcohol. St. Luke’s Hospital is committed to keeping our community informed and providing exceptional care, close to home. - article submitted by Jennifer Wilson

Summer intern at Tryon Fine Arts Center

Jerreth Emory (left), summer intern, and Jimm Brink (right) pause backstage at TFAC. TLT summer youth plays provide a perfect opportunity to learn about the technical aspects of putting on a dramatic production.

Through the generosity of a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation, Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) was fortunate to hire Jerreth Emory,

a rising senior at Landrum High School, as this summer’s theater technical intern. Emory assisted TFAC technical director, Jimm Brink, with

numerous preparations for the Tryon Little Theater’s (TLT) summer youth shows. Though he has been in dramatic productions as an actor, Emory learned about live theater from a different point of view through this internship. Theater rigging, stage lighting and sound production require special knowledge and hours of work to make a play come to life. As these high school students learn about the technical requirements needed to make live theater work, a group of skilled volunteers and workers begins to develop. These students, even when they go off to college and come home to visit, are then available to help out with other TLT productions and with various school productions. TFAC can also later hire them as stage hands when a large musical group comes in with heavy light and sound requirements. – article submitted by Beth Childs

Summer Tracks fifth concert Aug. 12 at Rogers Park Gigi Dover and The Big Love, plus Bob Sinclair take the Summer Tracks’ stage for the fifth concert of the season at Rogers Park in Tryon on Aug. 12 at 7 p.m. The evening begins with Hickory native singer-songwriter Bob Sinclair, whose trio features Joseph Hasty on upright bass and Greg McLaughlin on guitar. With a sound that seems to come from another time, Sinclair’s tunes provoke a feeling that is reminiscent of the old standards – merging jazz, country-swing, blues and ballads with ease. After a recent performance by the trio, Steve Cook, the music director for the On the Square Events in Jonesborough, Tenn., said, “These three guys rock, each carrying their own weight with talent and wonderful arrangements ... there is a Willie Nelson quality about Sinclair’s singing, as well as his songwriting.” Always a crowd pleaser at Rogers Park, Gigi Dover and the Big Love will feature their 2010 CD titled The Avocado Sessions and are bringing along their full five-piece “Big Love” band. A soulful, Southern songstress and a brilliant songwriter, Gigi brings sonic warmth, mystery and even a bit of humor into her music and delivers it with presence of a veteran rock chic. Lindsay Planner of All Music Guide, Music Tap Dot Net, said, “The Great Depression of Rural Rock is finally

over…The Avocado Sessions (2010) is here to feed the faithful as Gigi Dover & The Big Love have returned with their own blend of Southern sonic spices. Dover and Co. are once again unapologetically funky, serving up a tasty collision of

Americana and soul.” As with all Summer Tracks concerts, the free performance begins at 7 p.m. Voluntary donations at the gate are encouraged. Those donations combined with sponsorships provided by local businesses make these shows possible. Giardinis wood fired pizzas, Cinn-ful Nuts’ desserts, water and soft drinks will be for sale. Summer Tracks series of six concerts offers a mix of musical styles. Scheduled to perform for the final show is The Firecracker Jazz Band on Sept. 2. Summer Tracks is produced by the Town of Tryon in affiliation with Peter Eisenbrown of Blockparty Productions. Last year, the concerts drew an estimated 2,000 people to downtown Tryon.

Dr. Thomas E. Morrow...the Marcus Welby of his day While channel hopping with the remote recently, I happened upon a station rerunning a segment of the very popular series Marcus Welby, MD, starring Robert Young, which ran from late 1969 to mid-1976. For those who have never seen the series, or may have forgotten much of it, Marcus Welby was a somewhat unorthodox medical practitioner. He was intimately involved in the lives of many of his patients. He had a young doctor associate, who was unorthodox in his personal life choices but insisted that medicine should be done “by the book” in a more detached manner. Remembering Dr. Welby’s defense of his way of doctoring brought to mind a Dark Corner physician named Thomas E. Morrow who, too, was somewhat unorthodox in his practice. He practiced medicine from a two-room office located about 50 feet from the eastern side of his stately home on Morrow Drive in Gowensville. From here he examined patients and compounded some of his medications. He served patients there and in the surrounding Motlow Creek, Jordan, Ebenezer-Welcome, Glassy Mountain and Oak Grove communities. He was a trusted, gregarious fellow who was interested in the lives of many individuals and families beyond the doctor-patient relationship. He was particularly fond of fishing, both with friends and neighbors, as well as by himself. In fact, his love of fishing pro-

In 1907, Dr. Morrow made the first of three purchases of land, which comprised a total of 212 acres, between Middle Tyger River and Goodjoin Road. The third tract had a one-year-old stately home that had been built in 1910. This was his home and office until his death, at age 76, in 1940. Oma Carlton and Onie’s three children, Nannie Earle Reese, Thomas Haines Morrow and Oma Carlton Morrow Jr., eventually sold the property to Bob Gordon.
