St. Luke’s to accept bids for Trade Street property Bids accepted until June 16, 4 p.m. After months of deliberation, the St. Luke’s Hospital board of trustees has decided to accept sealed bids for the purchase of a prime corner of real estate at 62 N. Trade St. in downtown Tryon. The building and property have been vacant since February when St. Luke’s Hospital Auxiliary relocated the popular Thrift Shop to a larger store at the opposite end of Trade Street. Several people have expressed interest in purchasing the property, said Ken Shull, president/ chief executive officer for St. Luke’s Hospital. “Many people have expressed their desire to see that property remain as retail business and not office space," Shull said. "Our

board reviewed the property and considered various uses for the building, but in the end, decided a sale of prime real estate to be in the hospital’s best interest for the long-term.” Although St. Luke’s has no need for the property, the board is very interested in making it available to the benefit of the downtown retail business, he added. “While we believe the bid process will be fair and efficient for all parties, our board will carefully consider, not only the offers to purchase but also the potential use,” Shull said. “This is not a ‘fire sale.’ We have time to wait for the right price, and we want the future use of that property to best benefit our community.” Since a number of people have expressed interest in that location, St. Luke’s board of

trustees agreed to accept sealed bids through 4 p.m., Wednesday, June 16. All bids should be sent to Shull’s attention at 101 Hospital Drive, Columbus, N.C. 28722. Anyone interested in touring the vacant building and property

at 62 N. Trade St. should pick up the key from the cashier at the new St. Luke’s Thrift Shop, formerly Isadora’s, located at 148 N. Trade St. Anyone with questions is invited to contact Shull at 894-3525, ext. 3250.

No tax increases in proposed Saluda budget

3x9 5/1

Public hearing set for Monday


by Leah Justice

Saluda residents who may be worrying about possible increases in their bills from the city should be able to relax. Saluda's proposed budget for next year includes no increases in tax rate or water and sewer rates. Saluda will hold a public hearing on the city's proposed budget Monday at 7 p.m. at the Saluda Public Library prior to adopting the new budget. The budget is for the fiscal year 2010-11, which begins July 1. The city’s total budget is proposed at $1,460,860 with $939,615 budgeted for the general fund and $521,235 for the water and sewer fund. The current year’s budget was $1,363,255. Saluda approved last year a revenue neutral plus nine percent growth tax rate following the 2009 property revaluation. The city’s tax rate is proposed to remain at 45 cents per $100 of valuation. Saluda is planning to do some capital projects next year including the following: • $8,000 in administration for computers and software; • $46,710 in the police department to purchase computer upgrades, a video microphone and a 2010 Ford Explorer, which will be financed; • $16,650 in transportation and parks for a used dump truck, salt and sand shed, weed eater and a snow plow for the utility vehicle; • $4,500 for pay increases. The city is planning on giving a one percent cost of living increase on July 1 and a two percent merit increase on Jan. 1. Saluda also plans to contribute $115,665 to its fund balance.

be awarded to the winner along with $20,000 in cash and trophies to competitors. “It’s going good. The vendors are trickling in,” said Jerry Tyner, infield vendor chair for the festival’s board of directors. “We’re getting the field set up, and we’re hoping the weather is going to help us.” A few rain clouds were hovered over Harmon Field as Tyner spoke, but soon gave way to sunshine. Even so, another cloud hangs over a festival that has seen growth and success, but still has

no guarantee of continuing past this year. Bill Milroy, owner of Texas Rib Rangers and a 16-year veteran of the competition, said the discontinuation of the festival would constitute a severe loss to the Tryon community. “When you sit down and start looking, [a considerable] amount of money comes into the community here," said Milroy, who has traveled here each year from his home in Denton, Texas. "After we pay our percentages and pay for our supplies and everything, we’re probably looking at $20,000 that we’re going to leave in this com(Continued on page 7)

munity.” “It’d be a shame to see this festival go away, especially after seeing how much it’s grown," Milroy continued. "We’re going to have about 90 teams here this weekend. Outside of Memphis, it’s the second-largest cook-off we have in the eastern part of the United States.” Tyner said this year’s festival needs to turn a tidy profit if it is to continue beyond this year. “We need to see some kind of profit margin this year because it has been lean in years past,” Tyner said. “We’re just hoping attendance is going to help us meet that goal.” In addition to barbecue, attendees will be treated to a broad range of musical entertainment, which includes North Carolina-born

The Blue Ridge Barbecue & Music Festival, held this year on June 11 and 12 at Harmon Field in Tryon, has become one of the finest food festivals in the country. Interestingly, one of the main reasons for this is that it’s not just about food. One component that helps sets the event apart from other outdoor food festivals is its prestigious arts and crafts show, the Foothills Craft Fair. In its fourteenth year, this fair has become known for the range and quality of items for sale. The show is juried to bring the best contemporary and traditional crafts as well as fine art. Kelly Sparks, crafts fair chair, said that approximately 50 artisans from all across the southeast will be showing and selling their work at

this year’s event. Among them will be basket weavers from Kingsport, Tenn., a creator of beautiful wall hangings in metal and glass from Ocala, Fla., and a number of talented crafters from the local area. “There will be works in a broad range of media including wood, stone, metal, fabric, leather, glass, basketry, and clay, and others I probably failed to mention,” Sparks said. “Products include furniture, jewelry, pottery, walking sticks, sculpture, paintings, candles, soaps, silk flower arrangements, cutting boards, and many more.” Since each item must be hand made by the exhibiting artisan, the Foothills Craft Fair presents (Continued on page 9)

a great opportunity for visitors to talk to exhibitors and learn about the artistic process. Some crafters demonstrate their skills while at the fair, and many are willing accept special orders. Though the Foothills Craft Fair is a relatively small show, it has established a reputation for quality, variety, and accessibility. Sparks said visitors wander in and out of the exhibitor booths set under huge trees along the Pacolet River and find excellent pieces at affordable prices. According to Sparks, the Foothills jury process has been quite successful 864.592.1716 864.266.3299 North Carolina - South Carolina

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. Q. Who is an heir at law? a. an “heir” is any person entitled to receive real estate or personal property from an intestate’s (a person who did not make out a will) through the provisions of the North Carolina Intestate succession act (NCGs § 29-1 et seq). an heir must be alive or “en mare” (a conceived, but as yet unborn child) at the time of an intestate’s death. North Carolina specifies the order of priority, generally as follows: surviving spouse, lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc.); parents; siblings and their lineal descendants; grandparents and aunts and uncles and their lineal descendants. the number and relationship of surviving heirs will dictate the portions of the decedent’s estate they will share.

EVERY Visit the 2010 competition CHIMNEY cookers in Hog Heaven NEEDS A The Blue Ridge Barbecue & Music Festival has a reputation of being a “cookers contest,” and the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce strives to keep the art of barbecue at the heart of soul of all decisions at the festival. This annual event is considered by the various competitors as one of the premier events on the BBQ circuit. Last year the event had 78 teams competing for $20,000plus in cash awards — and, for the North Carolina teams, the status of being the North Carolina State Barbecue Champion. The following are short “bios” to introduce the competitors. The teams welcome you to visit them in their digs called “Hog Heaven.” The best way to see them in action is to stroll through the cook team area and have a friendly chat with some of the best outdoor cookers around. This list may not be all inclusive, as some teams entered the contest at the last minute. The chamber was expecting about 85 teams as of June 2.

Everybody’s Talking… When hip pain forced the former Cincinnati Bengals coach and Pickens High School football Coach Sam Wyche off the sidelines, the football legend was scheduled for surgery in a large teaching hospital with “leading” surgeons. But he felt lost in the system. “Those surgeons never communicated with me and it was making me a little nervous. So I checked around, heard about Dr. Rosenberg and his anterior approach to hip surgery so I made the trip to Polk County. I’d never heard of St. Luke’s Hospital, but I had a first-rate experience. I can’t say enough good stuff about it.” Now he’s telling everyone he knows. Whether he’s coaching the quarterback or signing autographs, Sam Wyche is back in the game of life.

11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Rock & Roll Reunion Get some barbeque, get comfortable and get ready to enoy the best in classic rock, beach and Blues. Based in Spartanburg, S.C., “Rock and Roll Reunion’s” front man is guitarist Tom Crabtree, one of the best-loved television news anchors (Channel 7/ WSPA-TV) in the Carolinas.

9:15 to 11 p.m. The Belleville Outfit The core of this Austin phenomenon sprang from Spartanburg’s very own and very popular DesChamps Band. Now joined with other musicians, they have grown into one of the most sought after bands on the Americana scene. Their last CD, “Time to Stand,” was #9 on WNCW’s Top 100 of 2009. As soon as they hit the stage, The Belleville Outfit’s mix of swing, country, jazz, gypsy and blues will have you swingin’ and swayin’ and singin’ along. “… the sextet (The Belleville Outfit) is one of Austin’s most musically accomplished and adventuresome, mixing gypsy swing, big-band jazz, a touch of bluegrass and some Walter Hyatt covers into a unique mix that flows like a whiskey river.” - The Austin Chronicle For more information or to hear clips, visit www.bellevil-

12:45 to 2 p.m. Gary Ray and the Heartwells Putting the country in rock ‘n roll or vice versa, Gary Ray & the Heartwells from Atlanta, Ga., have been described as “Zac Brown Band meets Jason Aldean.” For more information or to hear clips, visit or www.myspace. com/garyrayofficial. 2:30 to 3:45 p.m. South 85 With lyrics as entertaining as their licks, these muscians all hail from small towns along Hwy. 85 in South Carolina – and the essence of their songs comes straight from those roots.

The Second Annual Rubber Duckie River Race will be held at the Blue Ridge Barbecue & Music Festival this Friday and Saturday. This event, with a total purse of $1,500, pits hearty, yellow rubber ducks against the mighty Pacolet River in a race (with the help of volunteer Duck Herders) to the finish – somewhere near the banks of Hog Heaven – all in the name of good fun for a worthy cause. This year’s proceeds help support Harmon Field Youth Sports. The event is sponsored by Service Master of Polk/Spartanburg. Brian Jones, AVP of Macon Bank – this year’s “Duckie Chairman,” said there are a few changes in the way the event will be staged this year. “We plan to conduct one race in the late afternoon each day. Friday’s winner gets $350, second place gets $100 and third takes home $50. The top 25 finishers Friday are automatically entered in Saturday’s event. On Saturday, first place earns $750,

second place gets $200 and third place gets $50.” Last year’s chairman, Bill Crowell, set the tone for the event by asking everyone he met, “What does the Q in BBQ stand for?” The answer, of course, is “quack!” Tickets for duckies are available at the festival on both Friday and Saturday. The Blue Ridge Barbecue & Music Festival also includes live music, a Kids Fun Park with carnival rides and games and, of course, outstanding barbecue with all the trimmings. Gates open at 3 p.m. on Friday and at 10 a.m. on Saturday, closing at 11 p.m. both nights. Children 12 and under are admitted free with a paying adult. Admission includes shuttle parking and all live entertainment. On Friday, seniors receive a two-for-the-price-of-one discount all day, and kids can have unlimited rides for a discounted price from 3 until 7 p.m. Visit www.BlueRidgeBBQFestival.

Explore the First Peak of the Blue Ridge during the BBQ by Melinda Young, director, Polk County Travel and Tourism

Welcome to the First Peak of the Blue Ridge and thanks for coming our way for a great weekend of BBQ and music. If this is your first visit to the BBQ festival (or your tenth) and you haven’t explored the areas around the festival, we just want you to know that you’re missing out! Harmon Field is surrounded by rich beauty, history, serenity and adventure, so you can choose the best way to soak up our local charm. We’ve got the gorges, hiking trails, birding, waterfalls, scenic drives and historic small towns you’d expect in the Blue

Ridge Mountains. But you’ll also discover equestrian shows, wineries, distinctive shops & galleries, and a busy events calendar. While you’re here, we invite you to rest and rejuvenate for the night or a long weekend. We’ve got 13 inviting inns, more than 40 vacation cabins/cottages, plus hotels and campgrounds. You’re sure to find a place that’s just your style. While all three of our small towns are great gathering places, each has its own style. Tryon is

known for its bustling arts community and equestrian history. Saluda’s downtown historic district features one-of-a-kind shops and galleries. Columbus is known for its history and restaurants. All feature live music, events and festivals throughout the year. So walk the streets, visit with the locals at the general store or the coffee shop, enjoy a great meal and relax. No matter how you enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, we’ve got a colorful spot for you. Our most-loved scenic

attraction is Pearson’s Falls, a 268-acre native forest where a short trail leads to a rushing, 90foot waterfall. The Green River, just east of Saluda, offers many ways to enjoy the water. Choose easy-going tubing rentals or topnotch guided kayaking trips for all levels, or try your hand at fly fishing. Our hiking fits any level – from easy trails at the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) in Tryon to six-mile mountainous treks along the Poinsett Passage, which starts in Saluda.

off Friday’s admission. The Blue Ridge Barbecue & Music Festival is conducted annually under the auspices of the Carolina

Foothills Chamber of Commerce. Some of the proceeds from the festival help support chamber operations and any additional funds go to the

chamber foundation to be returned to the community through grants to a variety of programs and projects throughout the county.

Polk County residents who know of drug activity but who want to remain anonymous now have a way to alert officials. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office has established a new tip line for drug related calls. All information is confidential. The phone number to leave information is 828-894-8707. Polk County Sheriff Donald Hill says the new drug tip line was established to give residents who know of drug activity but don’t want to become involved a way to alert authorities and remain anonymous.

This area has a long history of grape growing and we are experiencing a rebirth in vineyards. More than a dozen dot our rolling countryside. Not to be missed are our two wineries – Rockhouse Vineyards and Green Creek Winery. Both are located in the Green Creek area and offer tours, tastings and spots to picnic. You can easily visit both in an afternoon. As you’ve probably already noticed, music is a big part of life at the First Peak. In addition to the BBQ festival, there are a number of other free, outdoor music concerts and festivals throughout the year. Tryon’s Summer Tracks concert series starts Friday, June 18 at Roger’s Park and continues throughout the summer. Tryon’s music heritage runs deep – it’s the birthplace of Nina Simone, a singer and musician known internationally as the high priestess of soul.

After attending a N.C. Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) Legislative Day recently, Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson says the outlook is bleak for counties and towns in terms of future state revenues. Whitson says it’s like counties and towns are sitting in the middle of the road waiting for a Mack truck to hit them. He predicts the real revenue problems will hit counties and towns in North Carolina next year. Whitson and county chair Cindy Walker attended the legislative day in Raleigh about three weeks ago. Besides revenue problems, several other issues were discussed. Following are summaries provided by the NCACC on some of the issues the state legislation is working on that could affect local governments in the future:

manage the ABC system and made numerous recommendations to improve the system, many of which would grant more centralized control and authority to the state ABC Commission. As a result of the ABC Study Committee’s recommendations, S1112 and H1217 were introduced during the first week of the short session. The NCACC says it will be carefully watching the development of the reform bills and will strongly oppose any provision that will dilute county revenues, impact the ability of local governments to contract for local law enforcement efforts or impact the autonomy of counties in the oversight of the ABC system.

ABC system Over the past several months, a handful of local ABC boards have come under scrutiny for perceived ethical issues, leading to more calls to reform the ABC system. Currently, 167 local ABC boards operate 410 stores, which are in 98 of the 100 counties. Cities and counties annually receive approximately $40 million to $60 million in revenues from the local ABC boards. The state ABC Commission determines which products will be sold, sets the prices and housed the inventory in a state warehouse. In 2008, the N.C. General Assembly asked its program evaluation division to study the current ABC system. Its study concluded that the state ABC Commission lacked the ability to effectively and efficiently

Annexation The Intergovernmental Relations Steering Committee began studying annexation in 2008 and appointed a subcommittee to look at the law in more detail. H524 passed the House in 2009 and has been referred to Senate Finance. It is eligible for action in the short session. The bill has many elements that the NCACC supports, but the legislation allows for a referendum if a citizen can get at least 15 percent of the registered voters in the area to be annexed and the receiving municipality to sign a petition. The NCACC seeks a referendum if certain services are already in place for the area to be annexed. The legislation does not require the municipality to reimburse the county for lost sales taxes, but it does require the Local Government Commission to conduct a financial analysis, with authority to stop the annexation or reverse it if needed. There are four Senate annexation bills: S148, S472, S494 and S711, all of which are in a subcommittee of Senate

Mobile hospital on display at barbecue and music festival A prototype mobile hospital, the first of its kind in the world, will be on display for tours and information Saturday during the 17th annual Blue Ridge Barbecue and Music Festival at Harmon Field. The exhibit of Carolinas MED-1 is possible through the affiliation between St. Luke’s Hospital and Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) of Charlotte. Carolinas MED-1 is actually two 53-foot tractor-trailers, one serving as the patient care facility, the other as a support and equipment storage unit. Nearly 1,000 square feet of indoor treatment space is available and includes six critical care beds, two of which are isolated, seven general beds and one dental/ ENT chair. An additional 100 beds can be added through an exterior tent. molH-036248



Carolinas MED-1 has Level 1 Trauma Center capabilities and has a full pharmacy, laboratory, radiology and ultrasound and telemedicine uplinks. Emergency trained physicians and clinical staff are specially trained during mock disaster drills to provide life-saving medical care during times of disaster. The mobile hospital was designed following the 9/11 disaster and has since provided medical support in several areas of the country devastated by floods and Hurricane Katrina. Carolinas Med-1 has deployed four times to serve citizens in need: • Waveland, Miss., 2005 – Treated more than 7,500 patients in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. • New Orleans, La., 2006 (Continued on page 41)

• Mobile hospital (continued from page 40)

– Treated nearly 600 patients during New Orleans’ first Mardi Gras following Hurricane Katrina. • Columbus, Ind., 2008 – Treated 2,300 patients after floods closed the community’s hospital. • Charlotte, N.C., 2010 – Distributed free H1N1 vaccines at several locations, including Eastland Mall and Uptown during the Martin Luther King Day Parade. The self-contained medical facility is owned by CHS, the largest healthcare system in the Carolinas. St. Luke’s Hospital affiliated with CHS in 2008 for specialized management expertise, experience with developing strong community-based clinical services, and participation in revenue and purchasing contracts.

DENR’s $6,333 will buy trailer at Polk Central Polk County’s recycling participation is growing and so is its program thanks to the recent approval of a grant from the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance (DPPEA). Polk commissioners announced on Monday that the county received a $6,333 grant from the DPPEA this month and will use the money to place a recycling trailer at Polk Central School in Mill Spring. Polk County commissioner chair Cindy Walker said the mobile recycling program has far exceeding preliminary expectations both in involvement and in tonnage collected. “The community arrives in a steady stream to our scheduled sites, it’s like ‘old home week,’” she said Monday. “They enjoy the fellowship of visiting with friends and neighbors while handing over their items to

our friendly attendant, whom they have all come to like and respect.” The county currently has a mobile unit that travels to Harmon Field and Saluda on a weekly basis. Trailers are also at area schools for recycling. The county has also discussed adding a Columbus area to the mobile recycling schedule after Columbus closes its recycling unit to begin curbside pickup beginning in July. Walker also on Monday reviewed participation percentages since the mobile recycling program began. She said first quarter records reveal a 49 percent increase in paper tonage and a 94 percent increase in commingled over the previous quarter totals. The county has also nearly accomplished the annual anticipated rates for school recycling with 18,000 lbs of paper and 7,200 lbs of commingled containers in the first four months of the program. Walker emphasized the other two “Rs” that go with recycling, which are “reuse,” and “reduce.”

the Columbus, Midway, and Mill Spring areas either found the Lord or were reunited. In the summer of 1940, these new converts and rededicated Christians began to burn with the desire to form their own church. The opening paragraph of Midway’s record book reads, “On June 30, 1940, the Midway Baptist Gospel Tabernacle was originated by a band of 53 members who love the Lord supremely.” Sunday, July 14, 1940, Midway organized the first Sunday school in the yard of Carrie Ritchey. Sunday, July 28, 1940, Sunday School began with 82 people in attendance. Many were members in good standing of other churches, some were baptized Christians who had never joined a church and some were new converts who had never experienced baptism or church membership. The message was clear in all their hearts; God wanted a church at Midway where His spirit could flow through the membership and praise Jesus. Mr. & Mrs. Arthur Tate do-

nated the land, E.S. Burnette set up a saw mill at the site and the men and women went to work building a church. During the five month construction period the group held services in Mrs. Carrie Ritchey’s open air wood shed with the Rev. Harold Liner as Pastor. The group had called Rev. Harold Liner on July 29, 1940, and recommended his home church, West Concord Baptist, ordain him into the Gospel Ministry. The first Baptismal service of the Midway Baptist Gospel Tabernacle was held on July 28, 1940, below Green River dam near the Hwy #9 bridge. The candidates for Baptism were Clyde Covil (Henson), Fred Dameron, Lillian Green, Edith Laughter (Ritchey), and Annie Ruth Laughter (Sims). Harold was ordained on August 4th and preached his first sermon as Pastor August 11, 1940. In November of 1940, the first child was born into the Midway Baptist Gospel Tabernacle family. The child was Harriett Arledge Case.

An Eagle, a Swan (and a dolphin) With the approach of summer moon and will command your new constellations appear in attention at once! As the evening progresses, the early evening sky replacing those of winter and spring. The summer stars begin to arrive from last of the winter constellations the east, notably those of Cygnus— Gemini- the twins — can still the swan, and Aquila-the eagle. Cygnus is easy to identify as its be found just after dark in midJune. Its two bright stars, Castor seven brightest stars are arranged and Pollux, provide an interesting in the shape of a large cross. So contrast in color if you are able evident is this feature that the constellation to catch them is often called in the late twithe “Northern light sky beStarry ross.” (Its fore they set in Messenger Ccounterpart — the northwest by Jim Cooper the “Southern shortly after Cross” — is a sunset. constellation The prominent spring constellation — Leo proper visible from the South- the lion — remains conspicuous ern Hemisphere and not North until one hour after sunset and Carolina.) Making the bottom of the currently contains the red planet Mars. Mars is flanked by two cross is the binary star “Albireo” other bright planets, Saturn to which in a telescope is a very the east and Venus to the west. beautiful star with components Venus is the brightest object in of blue and gold. These two the sky other than the sun and stars (which appear single to the

unaided eye) orbit each other in a manner similar to the way in which the earth orbits the sun. Just south of Cygnus is Aquila, whose stars are arranged so they resemble a bird with outstretched wings. Since antiquity Aquila has been known as the “soaring eagle.” One stone-carved representation of it has been found dating back to 1200 B.C. Cygnus and Aquila fly precisely along the course of the Summer Milky Way, but on opposite sides and in different directions — Cygnus toward the south and Aquila toward the north. The bright star clouds of this particular region of the Milky Way are interrupted in many places by dark patches representing vast regions of interstellar dust and gas which serve to block the light from the more distant background stars. These dark patches were called “holes in the

heavens” by astronomers before they realized that the dark spaces were composed of something rather than nothing. Just outside the band of the Milky Way to the east of both Cygnus and Aquila is a very small but quaint constellation called “Delphinus” — the dolphin. This configuration of six stars represents the mammal dolphin, not the dolphin fish. Delphinus, in legend, is the dolphin that carried the Greek poet Arion safely to shore at Tarentum (a seaport in Italy) allowing him to escape from his enemies. For a last look at the winter stars and a first look at those of summer, including but not limited to Cygnus, Aquila and Delphinus, join the astronomers at FENCE on Saturday, June 12, after sunset. If the weather is clear, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Saturday evening and we arrive home from Mass to find three messages on our phone. One hour later the phone rings again and it’s my dear friend Jeanette Larson in tears. My initial fear is that something has happened to one of her beloved pets. Instead she tells me of two dogs her and Bert found on Peniel Road. They had stopped for a very young blue tick hound who was walking down the road. She seemed in reasonably good shape save some eye problems. While getting the hound in the car, they noticed another dog lying further off the road. “Lennie, it was awful” Jeanette related, bawling,

which started me crying. It was a Border Collie mix that they figured was at least 14 years old. The old girl was thin, one front leg seemed to have been broken and healed without attention. Her hind legs were arthritic and her teeth were also in bad shape. She was also full of ticks. “We took them to the veterinary emergency hospital in Hendersonville and we’re picking (Continued on page 58)

honest but compassionate and I immediately like him. “Except for a minor eye problem the young blue tick looks in fine shape.” “Thanks, Doc, I’ll see they get what they need.” Bert settles the bill and the staff bring the girls out for us to load in our vehicle to take to F.H.S. A large soft blanket and plenty of treats are waiting for the girls. As Bert loads the young hound, I spot the old Collie for the first time as she is being walked out on a leash. She is stumbling but gamely trying and I look into the eyes of this proud and beautiful creature. I rush over and scoop her up into my arms, “that’s good enough girl” I say, burying my tear filled face into hers. On the way to the shelter both girls gobble up bacon strips as fast as I can give them. At the shelter I name the young hound Jeanette and the old Collie mix, Bertha, after my dear, dear friends. I believe in my heart that the old girl (Bertha, excuse me) was put out there to die and the young hound (Jeanette ) was keeping guard over her. What I’m about to ask is a difficult thing but it is my fervent prayer that someone would have it in their heart to foster old Bertha and let her live out her remaining time with all the love and dignity she deserves. Whatever food and medicine she may need, I will provide. Puppies and kittens are cute and easy to love but dogs such as Bertha are what the “Humane” in the Humane Society is all about. Thanks for listening.

At the vet hospital (a beautiful facility by the way) Bert introduces me to Dr. Owen as a friend from the Humane Society. “Doc,” I ask, “I need to know what’s best for the old girl, if there’s a chance I’ll see she gets it, if there isn’t any quality in her life we’ll put her to sleep today.” Without even meeting the girl yet, just saying the words fills my eyes with tears. “She’s up and about,” he tells me “though kind of rickety, she’ll probably need to be on anti-inflammatory medicine for the rest of her live but barring anything major like Parvo or heartworm, I’d give her a chance.” The doctor is

How do we recycle our compact fluorescent bulbs? Caller: I’ve been trying, at both the county and town level, to find out how we’re supposed to dispose of CFL (Compact Flourescent Light Bulbs) - the curly ones that are potentially hazardous. Any help would be appreciated. TDB: CFL light bulbs, according to the Polk County Solid Waste department, should be recycled and are collected in a special bin at the landfill. However, without going to the landfill, we know of no other way that CFLs are recycled in Polk County. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, CFLs do contain an average of 4 milligrams of mercury, but

manufacturers are reducing that from from coal-fired electric as time goes on. By comparison, power. *** a old thermometer contains 500 Caller: Thanks to the Bulmilligrams of mercury.

market prices of recycled materials. But without a total cost, this in my opinion is an incomplete answer. Conversely, it would appear that the county government does not want us to know how much it costs. I would think the county government was capable of responding to the question: “How much does it cost to provide recycling.” TDB: Perhaps, but it appears to us that they have answered the question as best they can. To try to break out from all the solid waste operations, and county support operations, some number that reflects the “cost of recy(Continued on page 61)

What in the world do these positions have to do with a particular political party, especially the

sheriff position? When it is an issue of all of our public safety, I don’t feel a political party has anything to do with it. I have always felt this is a very strange practice here in Polk County. Please enlighten me. I have been a resident for 15 years. TDB: Right or wrong, in all of North Carolina, several offices that would not seem related to politics are nonetheless elected in partisan contests: District Attorney, Clerk of Superior Court, Register of Deeds, Sheriff. It is likely the wisdom of the General Assembly in making this law that the parties offer a vetting process that improves the pool of candidates.

*** Caller: I live at Lake Lanier. I am in South Carolina House District 17. The candidate for that office that is popular with us an is trying to get elected (in the Republican primary held last Tuesday) is Tom Corbin. He is running against 20-year incumbent Harry Cato. It is, I am sure, coincidental that that information was left out of Monday’s Tryon Daily Bulletin. No information on House District 17 was included. It is also coincidental that we pay our school tax into Spartanburg County, who issued this information, I am told. Tom Corbin is opposed to the heavy

property tax that we pay, all of which goes to Spartanburg County. Isn’t it convenient that his candidacy would be omitted? It is almost as though some might not want others to know about him or vote for him. I don’t know anything positively other than his whole name has been omitted. But it concerns me. That should not be allowed to happen. TDB: We can assure you that we are not part of any conspiracy with Spartanburg County to keep anyone in the dark. We appreciate that you look to the Tryon Daily Bulletin for information about the South Carolina elections.

Making art with moss at Upstairs The Upstairs Artspace will offer a lecture/demonstration on making art with moss on Tuesday, June 15, at 4 p.m. The presenter is Annie “Mossin’ Annie” Martin, one of the artists in the new exhibit “Materials, Unexpected.” Martin will speak about how to conceptualize a piece of art using moss and other plant materials.

Polk Vocational Services receives grant from PCCF Polk Vocational Services (PVS), a not-for-profit corporation, serving Polk County residents with developmental disabilities was awarded a $21,400 grant from Polk County Community Foundation (PCCF) for the purchase of a new van. This van will be instrumental in allowing PVS program participants opportunities to explore and learn about the community, while building new skills. Although the van was purchased only a few weeks ago many outings have been completed including Harmon Field, Strawberry Hill, Polk County Museum, House of Flags and the Public Library with many more planned for the summer.

“This generous grant and resulting van purchase allows us to continue our commitment to provide program participants individual choice in where they would like to go, as well as giving us a vehicle for use for small groups to access events in the community,” stated Colleen Jewell, vice-president-program services at PVS. The vision of the Polk County Community Foundation is to advance philanthropy and improve the quality of life for all citizens in Polk County and the surrounding area. “This grant is just one example of the exemplary commitment of PCCF to fund organizations that

munity in unbelievable ways. “It is easy to see that these equine industries believe in local service and philanthropy. Their recent partnership with the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club’s Horse Shows is key to our overall mission.” Lisa Otto, founder of The Grazing Gourmet and Nicker Doodles horse cookie brand, is thrilled that her company can continue to support the economics of Polk County. From the start (or should we say from scratch?) Lisa’s commitment has been to “keep it local”. All raw ingredients like oats, wheat bran, and molasses are purchased from Little Mountain Farm Supply in Columbus. Baking and shipping right from her garage, Otto bakes in twelve-hour shifts several days a week. Thousands of cookies then make their way to local feed stores

and beyond to ten different states in the eastern region. Going right to the experts for complete nutritional advice from the start, veterinarians at Tryon Equine Clinic helped Otto in developing the Nicker Doodles cookie recipe for optimum equine digestion and nutrition. “Most cookies on the market have a slow transit in the digestive tract. Choking on a hard cookie is always a worry, too,” says Dr. Bill Hay of Tryon Equine. “Lisa’s commitment to make a palatable, yet completely nutritious horse snack makes them ideal.” First year sales for Otto were at a meager $800 and now she can proudly say The Grazing Gourmet is close to reaching $50,000 in annual sales.

It is truly great news when one hears of new small businesses starting up locally AND then to hear that these same businesses form partnerships with local organizations to enlarge the philanthropy in Polk County. Two such businesses and their owners were recently featured in Appointments, the free monthly equine supplement to the Tryon Daily Bulletin. Here are a few more facts and observations from an economics and philanthropic viewpoint. Laura Weicker, Executive Director of the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club says, “Truly representative of our local area, the Grazing Gourmet Company and AquaTread Rehab Center have generated jobs and income for Polk County while continuing to give back to our com-

As part of her goal in the company, Lisa believes strongly in giving back to the community. The River Valley Pony Club has received generous donations from Nicker Doodles in the form of horse coolers, saddle pads and money. The BRHJA and Harmon Hopeful Horse Shows also have received countless cookies for prizes. “Partnering with these organizations and now with the TR&HC is really the reward. My company’s support helps local equestrians in many ways. Funding for scholarships, education, and philanthropy is just another way to contribute to this wonderful community filled with great equine diversity,” states owner Lisa Otto. Opening in April of this year, Still Creek Farm’s AquaTread Rehab Center is also a partner with many of Polk County’s organizations. With the TR&HC’s shows held at FENCE in June and July, owners Linda and Kem Ketcham, know their company’s financial involvement will grow Polk County’s horse industry, broadening the overall economy in Polk County. “Restaurants, hotels, tack shops, grocery stores… You name it. Our hope is that our company can keep Polk County’s economics moving forward by bringing horses and people here for our services,” states Linda. The Ketcham’s rehab center’s development and construction were handed directly to local builders. Twelve new stalls and a state-of-theart swim complex brought dozens of new jobs to the area. With farm trainer Holli Adams and manager Lauren Allen in charge there is no doubt this equine facility will continue to grow. At present 50 horses a week are finding their way to the 60-foot pool treadmill system. “We can handle more and believe in short order we will have horses from all over the region come to Polk County,” states Lauren Allen, farm manager. 0tfn3wed - pa Good news does seem to travel fast these days. With two new local equine businesses, the economics and giving back are easy to see.

How to choose a home blood pressure monitor tested and validated for accu-

Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about home blood pressure monitors? My doctor recently told me that I have hypertension and need a monitor for the house so I can keep an eye on it. But with all the choices, I’m a little overwhelmed. Hypertensive Helen Dear Helen, Everyone with high blood pressure (140/90 or higher) or prehypertension (between 120/80 and 139/89) should have a home blood pressure monitor! Home monitoring can help you keep tabs on your blood pressure in a comfortable setting. Plus, if you’re taking medication it will make certain it’s working, and alert you to a health problem if it arises. But with all the styles and options available today, selecting one can be confusing. Here are some tips to help you choose.

day tfns

Savvy Senior

Types of Monitors While there are various types blood pressure monitors on the market (manual monitors, automatic and semi-automatic upper arm monitors, wrist monitors, and finger monitors) the most popular option that’s also recommended by the American Heart Association is an automatic monitor for the upper arm. The reason? They’re reliable and simple to use. With an automatic arm monitor, you simply wrap the cuff around your bicep, and with the push of one button the cuff inflates and deflates automatically giving you your blood pressure reading on the display window in a matter of seconds. Semi-automatic models work the same way, except you inflate the cuff manually by

squeezing a rubber bulb. Manual blood pressure monitors on the other hand aren’t nearly as popular because they require you to check your own blood pressure with a stethoscope which is difficult for most folks. And wrist and finger monitors are not recommended because they’re not considered to be as accurate. What to Know To help you choose a good monitor that meets your needs, here are several things you need to check into: • Cuff size: If you’re opting for an arm monitor, make sure it has a cuff that fits your bicep. Blood pressure readings will be wrong if your cuff is the wrong size. • Accuracy: Check the packaging to make sure the monitor has been independently

racy and reliability by the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation or the British Hypertension Society. Many monitors on the market are not, and their readings may not be reliable. A list of validated monitors is available at the British Hypertension Society’s Web site at • Display: Be sure you can read the numbers on the display comfortably. Most automatic models offer extra-large digital displays and some even have voice-announced readings. • Extra features: Depending on your wants and needs, many automatic arm monitors come with a variety of additional features such as a built-in pulse (heart rate) measurement, irregular heartbeat detection, memory to store previous readings and computer connections (Continued on page 76)

Roseland summer program begins June 14 The Roseland Institute for Summer Enrichment (RISE!) will open on Monday, June 14 and continue through July 15. The program, which serves children ages six through 12, will operate Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is a one time registration fee. According to Dr. Warren Carson, president of Roseland Community Center, this year’s pro-

gram is a scaled back version of a program that has been in effect for nearly 20 years. “Although we seemed to have weathered the economic storm, we still have to make every penny count,” says Carson. “But we are determined to continue serving the children of the community - they need us now more than ever before.” At RISE!, the children participate in arts and crafts, sports and

recreation, games and educational activities, and participate in a community project. This year’s project will be a continuation of learning more about the history of the Eastside community. There will also be a creative writing project. Rev. Eleanor Miller will direct the program. Volunteers will assist with various activities throughout the five weeks.

Persons interested in making a tax-deductible donation to support the youth program may send the donation to Roseland Community Center, P.O. Box 83, Tryon, N.C. 28782. Those interested in volunteering, treating the kids to lunch, or making other kinds of donations may contact Dr. Carson at 864542-5185. – article submitted

Swim safely this summer Even though the subject of this week’s column doesn’t involve exercise or nutrition, it definitely has to do with one’s well being. As a WSI (water safety instructor) for the American Red Cross, I have taught, and certified lifeguards, taught water safety, as well as swimming. Statistically, in the U.S., 50% of the people who drown each year, never intended to get in the water in the first place. Narly 1,000 children drown each year. It’s crucial to learn how to keep you and your family safe in and around water. We call this water proofing. Kids need constant supervision. Young children can drown in just two inches of water. This means that extreme care should be taken not just in swimming pools, but also in bath tubs, sinks, wading pools, fountains, toilets, buckets, even ditches filled with rain water. Make no mistake! Drowning can occur very quickly, so never let children out of your sight for even a few seconds.

oxygen, due to breathing in a very small amount of water. While the water prevents the lungs from oxygenating the blood, the heart does not slow down, so the person can still walk and talk, but then later die from lack of oxygen. Sometimes in dry drowning, the larynx goes into spasms. This is called a laryngospasm. This also deprives the victim of oxygen. A sudden change in a person’s mood, or personality, energy level, agitation, sleepiness, vomiting, involuntary defecation, or extreme lethargy may be a sign of oxygen deprivation. If any of these signs are observed get medical help immediately.

Foundation grant allows teachers to stay with host families in Mexico Tryon Kiwanis Club President-elect Steve Cobb greeted teachers Rachel Hall of Polk County High School and Pilar Pace of Tryon Elementary recently after their presentation to the club. Hall and Pace described their trip to the colonial city of Guanajuato, Mexico last summer. A Priscilla and Ellis Slater Excellence in Teaching Grant for Educators from the Polk County Community Foundation gave them this opportunity. They stayed with a host family and shared their experiences by writing a daily blog of their activities and interactions with people and places. As the Hispanic population has increased rapidly in the past ten years, Hall and Pace said they wanted to find ways to help Hispanic families become more involved in their children’s

education and to increase their knowledge of Mexico. Their goals were to develop a stronger relationship with parents of their students by knowing the parents’ native country from personal experience. This will hopefully encourage parental involvement in the schools and community. They found that there are many similarities between American and Mexican schools including parent/teacher conferences, report cards, end-of-grade testing, and a core curriculum. However, in Mexican schools there are no extra-curricular activities, no assistants in any classes, rural schools have televised lessons in different content areas, and classrooms typically have 55 students in elementary school and 35-40 in middle school. Ms. Hall and Ms. Pace expressed their gratitude to the Polk

County Community Foundation for granting them the funds for

this extraordinary educational trip.

most recent property reevaluation we held the overall tax as closely as possible to revenue neutral. Revenue neutral means that we actually collect very little more in taxes than the year before even though some people had property that increased in value while other property was valued at less. My example is that my property increased in value almost 30%. As a result of this reevaluation, I am paying more tax. The actual total of ad valorem (property) taxes projected to be collected for the next fiscal year (2010-2011) is projected to be less than this year (2009-2010). The Town has attempted to maintain the same level of services since I have been Mayor; however, we are now at a crossroads. We have some serious financial choices to make during the next two fiscal years. At the present level of services we will soon run a deficit. I cannot foresee our letting that happen; therefore, I am prepared to make some recom-

Letter to the Editor

Tryon Mayor outlines 2010 budget thoughts To the Editor: This is the first in a series of several “info letters” that I will be sending during the next few weeks. They will deal primarily with how I perceive the Town is faring with regard to the economy and the losses and belt tightening which we will have to face. This is by no means all inclusive. I will break the data into four categories. The first will be about energy savings, to be followed by vehicle savings, rent and lease income, and finally by a broad category of “other topics.” To illustrate that we have taken the budget process seriously, look at what has happened in the past eight years. Since I became Mayor in 2001, we have cut taxes twice, and during the

mendations on how to achieve the goals of maintaining services as much as humanly possible while holding the line on taxes. The following are the suggested areas for some savings. Some of these I have implemented at both my home and in Town Hall, some of them are in the process of being reviewed by the council and the town staff, and several are “on hold” as we wait for utility companies to give us evaluations of where they think that we can create savings. Many citizens are not aware that we lease the town property near the water plant as well as space in Town Hall, in the old fire department, and on the Town tower at Tryon Peak This saves us nearly 4 cents in the tax rate. There are other areas where I think we can collect funds or achieve savings: 1-Last year I purchased and installed new CFL (compact fluorescent lights) bulbs in four offices that are used daily (5 days

a week) by the town administrative staff. Thirty-six bulbs cost us approximately $110. We are saving over $260 per year. The new bulbs have already paid for themselves, and we now have a small savings daily. Recently I added CFL’s for the outside night lights at Town Hall. Fire Chief Joey Davis did the same at the Fire Department last year with similar savings. I also purchased bulbs for the outside night lights for the Tryon Depot, and they are saving us money! 2-Here is a quick lesson on how to figure the cost difference of using a regular incandescent bulb as opposed to a CFL. A 100 watt bulb that burns for ten hours consumes 1 kilowatt ( 10 x 100watts =1000watts= 1KW). The kilowatt costs approximately six cents; thus a 100 watt bulb that burned for ten hours costs 6 cents. A 100 watt incandescent bulb

in an office for a week burns the following: 100watts x 10 hrs x 5days =5kw or about 30cents per bulb in the office. Take the same 100 watts in a CFL and you get it for only 23 watts per hour X 10 hrs x 5 days = 1.15kw equals less than 8 cents per bulb in the office. 3-I have asked the Town Manager, Justin Hembree, to call Duke Power for a free audit that would give us a laundry list of ways to conserve during both the heating and air conditioning seasons. 4-I have asked for the cost of insulating the ceiling of the third floor of Town Hall. There is no insulation up there, and I believe that we can achieve a substantial savings by doing this. It worked in my home, and it will work in Town Hall. 5- We should look at utility companies and see if they have any matching funds to help save energy. In some places power companies are matching costs to install new ballasts and the new T-10 fluorescent lights. My understanding is that they both save energy and are green. There is a school system in Tennessee that upgraded all insulation, new storm or energy efficient windows, new fluorescent lights, heating and cooling timers and a plethora of other ways to save. They spent approximately 24

million dollars and are paying debt service with the yearly energy cost savings. In a sense it is free! 6- All heating and air conditioning systems should be on a programmable thermostat to make use of nights, weekends, and holidays. The thermostats are inexpensive, and they are valuable money savers. 7- I have also called a company that makes excellent insulated windows and asked them to give us a quote for replacing all the windows in the main Town Hall building. The cost savings may pay for the windows. This is the same company where I bought new windows for my home. 8-I think that we should put motion detectors on all lights in closets, restrooms, seldom used rooms, and anywhere else where few people go during the work day. The new lights would automatically turn on and off when motion iss detected, avoiding the possibility of being left on all day. 9-When we fully restart the new water plant, we should see a savings since we are now paying in the vicinity of $2000 per month to pump water from Lake Lanier to the water plant. When we begin adding the mountain water, the cost of this electricity should decrease since we will

New program at Pavillon focuses on women in substance abuse recovery

Citing a growing need for an effective program for women, Pavillon Treatment Center, located 45 minutes from Asheville near Lake Lure, announces the opening of its Extended Care Trauma Recovery Program for women with substance use disorders and persistent relapse issues related to unresolved trauma. Research shows - and outcomes reveal - that providing women with their own focused trauma recovery program leads to the likelihood of sustained sobriety rather than repeated bouts of relapse. “For many reasons, female patients may not have dealt with unresolved trauma during their primary treatment, and if that is the case, then relapse can become a greater threat to sustained recovery,” explained Dr. John Roberts, addiction psychiatrist with Pavillon. Following primary residential care at Pavillon, or from another treatment center, the Extended Care Program provides an additional layer of more focused treatment. For women struggling with unresolved trauma, extended time in specialized treatment that addresses recovery from the traumatic events can be that vital link to a life that is not as vulnerable to the triggers of relapse. “While Pavillon has long ascribed to the value and benefit of providing gender responsive treatment, we

believe our newest program puts a stronger focus on the issues surrounding women’s recovery needs,” said Anne Vance, CEO. The Extended Care Program for Women is located in a separate sober living residence on the main campus of Pavillon’s 141-acre campus in Polk County. “A program such as this answers a growing need in this region so that families and patients are not separated by having a loved in treatment far from home,” observed Susan Hickerson, a therapist in the extended care program. Each woman in the trauma recovery program receives her own individual treatment plan with a team of licensed, credentialed and full-time staff that includes a certified addiction counselor, addiction psychiatrist, physician and other medical staff, a nutritionist, wellness coordinator and spiritual care coordinator Pavillon provides residential and outpatient addiction treatment, education and continuing care programs for patients and family members from around the nation. Pavillon is not-for-profit and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Services, CARF. For more information, visit or call 828-694-2300. – article submitted

To the Editor: No wonder I saw tar balls on Myrtle Beach as a little kid. I really hated them but had no clue as to why they were there? I grew up to be a singer and the sands of time guided me to become the recent proud owner of a travel agency called Jazz Music Travel, whose name is what it says. Because I am concerned, as everyone is, about the Gulf Oil Spill, I have been researching organizations that can possibly be of assistance in the planning of a trip that involves enlightenment about the exquisite nature of our oceans and how to protect them. This info gathering has made me aware of other oil spills and of organizations in other parts of the world. Ironically, there was a world conference called Spillcon in Melbourne, Australia, on April 12th-16th, 2010, for International Oil Spill Prevention and Preparedness, just four precious days before the explosion in the Gulf. I stumbled upon a list of eighty oil spills that have happened in the last sixty years and the staggering facts pushed me back into my seat. There have been 50 worldwide oil spills before the Exxon Valdez in 1989, including two ongoing spills right now, the Gulf of Mexico, of course, and just two days ago, a tanker crashed in Singapore spilling 2500 tons that has fortunately stopped leaking. Tonnage is a big factor, and the fact we are even comparing the Exxon Valdez to this current spill is ludicrous. At only 37,000 tons, the Valdez spill was actually one of the lesser of the world histories of oil spills, even for the United States. The Gulf of Mexico is estimated to be as high as 500,000 tons and counting. The largest spill was 1,500,000 tons during the Persian Gulf War. I remember caring about the dolphins and wondering how they felt about shock and awe. In our country, we were really busy in the ‘W’ Bush years, with five spills ranging from New Orleans to Alaska, all what we’d consider minor, 6500 tons, 3400 tons (Continued on page 91)

•Tar balls (continued from page 90)

at a time. Shute, nothin’ to worry about. Wrong. Oil spill=ongoing disaster. The Prestige oil spill in Galicia, Spain let out 63,000 tons and polluted a total of 3,000 km of coastline. By comparison, the Exxon Valdez spill of 37,000 tons lasted two months and polluted some 1,000 km of coastline. Imagine beautiful Spain with their abstract shaped sea-pounded rocks coated in black. Other huge spills were in 1991, in the Mediterranean (god forbid) and Angola, the ABT, 810 miles offshore (260,000 tons). But the largest prior to this one happened in the Gulf of Mexico already, the Ixtoc 1, Mexico, spilling 480,000 tons. There are wonderful people out there helping to establish marine habitats to protect coral reefs and to monitor offshore drilling. At each one of these spills, there have been volunteers caring about the wildlife, cleaning sea birds, and we could take a tip from some of them on mobilizing faster. Once such organization Cape Town, South Africa is called SANCCOB , formed because of the “tiny” Treasure Oil Spill in 2000, (1700 tons). I thought I’d share it with you because my company recommends a one of a kind luxury cruise to and around that lovely place. SANCCOB organized the humans, who gently captured 21,101 coated sea birds and penguins, saving 19,201 birds in all, and only 1900 died of those that they were able to rescue. The cutest picture

ever is of the parade of penguins waddling back to shore with neon purple markers on their chests. As we halt helplessly for good news, anyone interested in several group trips that involve enlightenment about the exquisite nature of our oceans and how to protect them should reach me through my website . One such pilgrimage is to Monterey Bay, CA, for BLUE, a global film and conservation summit for underwater filmmakers, photographers, and marine researchers that features over sixty fims with the ocean as it’s theme. It also features VIP parties, formal dinners with live jazz, and a centennial tribute to Jaques Costeau. Featured will also be National Geographic’s chief marine biologist, Dr. Sylvia Earle, lovingly dubbed “Her Deepness” in scientific circles. There are dive trips to “Hope Spots” like Belize, Florida coast pilgrimages, and easy cruises to oil spill-free parts of the world, some even linking to jazz festivals. My sadness and anger for the dying wildlife, and the humans who lost their jobs and quality of life must be offset by my joy to share these travel experiences. I can only wish, like the lucky birds of the South Africa Treasure Spill, that some of the Gulf of Mexico’s birds, manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, and even shrimp can meet a similar group of compassionate humans and wish I knew better at this point how to be one of them, for the sake of grandchildren who might clear the beach of tar balls once and for all. – Laurie Scheid, “Lucianne”

Or, you could take an unplanned turn at a brown sign to discover Sheep Creek Canyon, a geologic treasure in Utah’s Ashley National Forest. Perhaps, an unsafe bridge will make you detour down a seldom-used Mississippi road through loess (from ancient dust storms) that’s taller than your vehicle. Along the way, you’ll find a Presbyterian Church with a Civil War cannonball in its brickwork. The shot came from the Federal gunboat “Rattler” on the Mississippi River. You can plan exotic experiences, such as paddling or rafting the Grand Canyon, bicycling Shark Valley in the Everglades, walking across a volcano in Hawaii, taking the Polar Bear Express train to James Bay on the Hudson Bay (hundreds of miles from the nearest highway), sailing the Caribbean, horseback riding in Monument Valley, snow skiing in the Grand Tetons, or sea kayaking in Alaska’s Lynn Canal. And, you can do all of this in North America, if you consider Hawaii to be North American. Of course, there are many places to stay, too: campgrounds for tents and RVs, youth hostels or Ys, bed and breakfasts, motels, hotels, resorts, cruise boats, institutes, even, convents and abbeys. Many people perform services or volunteer work as a way to see the world while giving something back. Others vacation for personal development or adventure. However you travel, have a focus, keep it simple, and enjoy!

liquid. When a person is bitten by a poisonous snake or spider, the madstone is placed in a saucer of warm milk to soften, while the bite area is pricked to form a pool of blood. Excess milk is shaken from the madstone and it is placed on the bite area. If poison is present in the blood pool, the madstone will “stick” (be difficult to lift from the bite area, as opposed to sticking like Super Glue). Once it can be easily lifted off the bite area, the madstone is placed back in the now cool milk and small greenish streaks

of poison will emanate from the stone’s pores.

Notes may be taken, but who’s opinion are they writing? The newspaper let all know that Ernie Kan said that her family would have a hard time paying

Rotary hosts three vets on visit to WWII Memorial bus tour of key Washington sites such as the U.S. Capitol, the White House, the Smithsonian Museum and other landmarks. The group (90 veterans and 30 Rotarian ‘guardians”) also had an emotional visit to Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier where they participated in a wreath-laying ceremony. Large, enthusiastic crowds welcomed the North Carolina group to Washington’s Reagan Airport where they began their tour with a police escort to the Washington Memorial. Before leaving Washington at the end of the day. Then again at the Asheville Airport, upon their arrival back in North Carolina, huge crowds exploded with cheers, songs, dancing and words of thanksgiving for these men who gave so much in defense of their country during World War II. “The Rotary Club of Tryon is proud to honor these brave men,” Van Hecke said.

The Rotary Club of Tryon, supported by a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation, recently sponsored three World War II veterans on an Honor Air trip to Washington, D.C. Rotary Clubs throughout western North Carolina have been sending World War II veterans to Washington to view different war memorials as a way of thanking them for their service to our country. On this particular trip, Jim Johnston (US Army), Lloyd Miller (US Navy) and Linwood Williams (US Army) were accompanied by Tryon Rotarian Jim Van Hecke as they toured the WWII Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Viet Nam Memorial, as well as drive-by viewings of the Iwo Jima and Air Force Memorials. Jim Johnston served in Okinawa and Korea. Lloyd Miller served at Midway Island. Linwood Williams fought at the Battle of the Bulge and was a prisoner of war. Also included in the trip was a

Host shelby and Crest round out the contingent from North Carolina. Class 4a powers Byrnes, gaffney and spartanburg – all of which made it to the Final Four in the 2009 state playoffs – will represent south Carolina. “once again our showcase will feature some of the best high school football talent from area programs in North and south Carolina at one of the premier football jamborees in the south while giving us a tremendous opportunity to promote high school football,” said polk County High school Coach Bruce ollis. “Local fans will be given the rare chance to see teams they don’t normally have an opportunity to witness all in one location. “It’s hard to believe this is our sixth BsC, and, like the others, it

We say, ‘hello’ and I say, ‘good-bye’ Funny, how hellos so often come with good-byes. this is hello from me, the new sports guy at the Tryon Daily Bulletin. I’m John, at this point a wily veteran in the ever-changing newspaper business. I grew up just a few miles away, down highways 176 and 357, wandered countless others and have returned home with plans to retire my frequent-flyer account. so, hello. I won’t bore you with the resume, but I will say that one of the thrills of my professional career was the chance on a couple of occasions to meet and interview John Wooden, the iconic coach who died this past weekend at the age of 99. Wooden’s death was no surprise. His health had been failing for quite a while, but it didn’t make “good-bye” any easier, probably because all of us know there will never be another like him. You have to understand what big-time college basketball has become since Wooden’s UCLa teams dominated the sport with names such as Walton and alcindor. Now, college basketball is a mega-bucks lottery ticket for coaches, players and hangers-on via shoe companies or club teams. It can be a dirty business. It’s an ego-driven business filled with Armani suits and slick haircuts. schools are too desperate to win. so desperate, in fact, that they will sully what was a sterling reputation to jump into cahoots with a cheat and do most anything for a flirty glance from Nike, whose shoes shod the players that come from the company’s all-star camps and games. I fear that a today’s Wooden would be trampled en route to March Madness – his folksy wisdom considered trite, his

I won’t pretend that I knew Wooden, but we know the stories of his undying love for his teen sweetheart and wife, Nell, who died in 1985. He wrote her a love letter once a month until his vision recently failed and never slept under the covers or on her side of the bed after she died. We know of his wisdom, and I know that rick pitino (see, slick hair cut and expensive suits) didn’t feel like he belonged on the same podium as Wooden when promoting the Wooden Classic in Indianapolis. I know there was a natural warmth each time I met with the Coach. He had as many questions for me as I had for him. He never stopped learning. “You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you,” he said. More importantly, he never stopped teaching.

“It’s been really fun. “I’m tall, so it was sort of an automatic for me to do the hurdles.” His performances helped pCHs to a region title and qualified the 6-foot-4 Martin for the state meet. In just two years of full-time track, Martin shaved about six seconds off his time in the 110m hurdles – down from around 21 seconds to about 15 – and more than 10 seconds off his 300m time – down to around 43 seconds from the mid 50s. “He’s got a pretty good work ethic,” said peoples. “Like a lot of kids, he came out and played around, trying to find out what he wanted to do, but then he started with the hurdles and got more serious.” and Brevard, a member of the NCaa Division II south atlantic Conference, noticed. the tornados are without a full-time coach for track and field and cross country, but are in the process of hiring one. Martin was recruited by interim coach Norm Witek. the questions at the top of the Brevard program did not dissuade Martin, who has yet to choose a major, but is considering business and psychology. “they said they felt like they

I like the fact that there are only about 700 people at the school and you can work one on one with your professors.” Martin will join pCHs classmate seth McCool in the freshman class at Brevard later this summer. McCool, a football standout, signed a football scholarship with the tornados earlier this year. While, Martin is signed and soon-to-be delivered to Brevard, peoples said a few of his other seniors are considering continuing their careers at their respective colleges of choice. some are being asked to walk on by interested track coaches and others are being considered for scholarships. peoples said gardner-Webb coaches are talking with longand triple-jumper Letoya twitty, UNC-Charlotte coaches are interested in pole-vaulters Bryan Lieberman and state runner-up amanda DeFisher. also, Western Carolina coaches have been in discussions with long- and triplejumper ethan rhodes as well as 400-meter specialist Valentin santos. peoples said those students have already been accepted to those schools and now have the chance to at least consider becoming student-athletes while there.

• Rotate Tires Regularly. Regular rotation helps extend the life of your tires, saving time and money in the long run. Rotation ensures that all the tires wear evenly and last longer. If no period is specified in your vehicle's owner's manual, tires should be rotated every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. —NAPS

Specialist for the deaf, blind speaks to Columbus Lions Rowan Lischerelli, deaf/ blind specialist, presented a program at a recent meeting of the Columbus Lions Club. Of the 9 million people in North Carolina, about 27,000 have both hearing and vision impairment. These are the people with whom Lischerelli works. Her services are provided through the N.C. Division of Services to the Blind, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services. She is located in Asheville, and is the deaf/blind representative for the 24 counties of western North Carolina. Her goal is to make life better for the deaf/blind in ways such as helping them find jobs, assisting them in keeping their independence, and keeping them from becoming isolated. There are many assistance

devices available for the deaf/ blind and Lischerelli brought one – a pocket talker – to show to club members. This is a small battery-operated box with head phones or ear buds which enhances sound when watching TV, attending meetings, etc. Several Lions tried it out and said that they were impressed. For more information call 828 251-6732 or 800-422-1881. Helping people with vision and hearing impairments is a primary mission of Lions and Columbus club officials say they are proud of the club’s long partnership with the N.C. Division of Services for the Blind. The Columbus Lions meet on the first and third Thursday evenings at Calvert’s Restaurant in Columbus, and they encourage anyone interested in

Green Creek School in 1955.

Green Creek all-male beauty pageant

Do you recognize any of these ‘ladies’ who were contestants in the all-male beauty pageant, held in the Green Creek Elementary School auditorium? In 1979, fathers and friends of the Polk Central High School Band members turned into fashion models on the stage of Green Creek School. Their antics brought the house down many times as they did their part to raise money for much needed uniforms for the Patriot Band. There was standing room only in the auditorium. The late Marvin Wagner, who was the principal at Green Creek Elementary at the time, finally managed to walk onto the stage in his high heeled shoes, much to the delight of his students and former students. Marvin is at left above, wearing sunglasses. Annette Estees, Channel 7 news anchor in 1970, was master of ceremony for the event. This picture and many others will be displayed at the reunion on Sunday, June 13. (photo submitted)

Great things to happen at Help Us stamp Laughter Pond! Fishing report OUt errOrs! Last week I went to address some problems at Laughter Pond, I spoke with Mike Edwards, Polk County Maintenance Supervisor, and he informed me that Duke Power was installing two light poles at the pond. No lights at the pond have been a problem since Woodland Mills closed, but one night last month I pulled in at the pond and witnessed what I think was a drug deal going down due to the lack of lighting. In addition, I asked if we could have some benches installed on the road side of the pond. Knowing that the County budget is tight, I asked if people could donate money to have a bench named in honor or memory of someone. I will be buying one in memory of my son in-law and fishing buddy, Brandon Horne. Many of you must have a fishing partner, parent or a grandparent that took you fishing that you can name one after. I’m getting prices on benches and will be getting back with you in weeks to come. Also, those bushes are taking over the banks; Mike said that the Wildlife planted them for the bass. I’m speaking with them about removing some so people can fish around the pond. This pond is creating many great memories. Check out a couple pictures that I took last Friday night. Thank you, County Commissioners for the lights!

When preparing a press release for your club, church, civic organization or sports team, please do the following: • Double-check your copy, make sure it is accurate! • Are days, dates and times correct? • Triple check the spelling (Spellcheck is a good thing!) of all names and the identification of people in pictures from left to right. • Email the story to us,, in either a .doc or .txt file. Emailed pictures must be in a high-resolution .jpg file. If you are leaving a disk, a printed copy of both text and pictures must accompany the disk (PC formatted only accepted). • Please observe the 450-word limit. • Include your name and telephone number so we can quickly clarify your information if necessary. —Thank you, The Editors, Tryon Daily Bulletin


Fishing Report This week trout fishing has jumped to number one. The delayed harvest section of Green River opened this weekend with spectacular results for many fishermen. Michael Burris landed a nice 25” brown trout on a white Betts curly tail jig. Many fishermen reported catching their limit this weekend on night crawlers, others claimed the trout magnet system was the key. Bass fishing was holding its own this week, with nice catches on large minnows. Crank baits have also been working well. Late in the day and early morning top water baits are still the best choice. Crappie are still being caught in large numbers but are a little harder to find. Search out the treetops and you can still catch a limit. Cat fishing has also improved for night fishermen with several reports of 6 to 10 lb fish being caught on jugs. Now is the time to take the kids fishing and make the memories they will never forget. Thanks to Ken Haynes of Silver Creek Campground. Check out the photo of the Brown trout that Michael Burris landed.

Brick by brick, Columbus City Council member Ernie Kan says she is going to have the Columbus court house sidewalk pulled up and replaced by July 4…“even if I have to do it myself.” She started on Tuesday evening, June 1, and plans to continue work week evenings on “every night there is not a posted note of a public meeting at the court house, because I’ll be attending those meetings.” She also states that though the town of Columbus has no money for this project, she, as a town council member, feels it has to be done or the town will face a law suit over the uneven brick pavement. Everyone is welcome to join the unbricking movement and help her “get it done.” (photo submitted by Carolyn Ashburn)
