A radio is clipped to Geoff Tennant’s belt where it sits permanently on his left hip, blaring occasionally a succession of long beeps and brief chatter – the tones of trouble. Somewhere. But it is peaceful at the Columbus Fire Department where Tennant has served as a firefighter for 35 years and as fire chief since 1982. No alarms sound and nothing at all hints at Tennant’s impending departure. After nearly 30 years of service as chief, Tennant is set to retire – or at least his version of it – at the end of 2010, giving Fire Chief Geoff Tennant poses next to an old firetruck at way to Bobby Arledge, who was Columbus the Columbus Fire Department.

Arledge new chief of Columbus Fire Dept. by John Clayton

Bobby Arledge, a long-time officer in the Columbus Fire Department and its only paid firefighter, was elected fire chief Monday night. Arledge, now the deputy chief, will replace the retiring Geoff Tennant as chief Jan. 1. He will spend the next six months training to take over the position. “Everybody sort of said (I

would be elected),” said Arledge. “So, I guess I felt good about it.” Tennant has served as the department’s fire chief for the past 28 years. He will serve the remainder of this year as chief and Bobby Arledge said he plans to move into an unspecified role within the He department after his retirement begins (see article above).

Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties

Arledge joined the department in 1994 as a volunteer and was hired as its lone professional firefighter five years ago. He has served as a lieutenant, captain, assistant chief and in his current position as deputy chief. said becoming chief of the (Continued on page 3)

U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler voted for the financial reform bill that passed the House Wednesday night. The bill will be taken up by the Senate after Congress returns from recess July 12. Shuler said financial reform was needed after the 2008 financial crisis. Shuler’s opponent in the November election, Republican Jeff Miller, also believes financial reform is needed but said he would not have supported the reconciled bill that eventually passed the House. Miller said it expands the power of the government too much. Miller was concerned about the increase in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation fees to large banks. He said banks such as First Citizens, a midsize bank, will still be impacted by the higher fees even though it had nothing to do with the financial crisis.

Lake Lure park plans

The Town of Lake Lure plans to purchase 200 acres north of the lake and turn it into a public park. The town will use a $450,000 grant from the N.C. Parks and Recreation Trust Fund to purchase part of the 1,527-acre Weed Patch Mountain tract from the Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy at half its appraised value. The 200-acre portion is accessible from Buffalo Creek Road just north of the Rumbling Bald Resort. The town plans to leave the majority of the tract in its natural state, but will develop trailhead parking and a picnicking area as well as public trails that will be among the first links in a trail system that might one-day circumnavigate Lake Lure. The proposed 30-mile Summits Trail would connect the new parkland with other recreational resources in the area including Chimney Rock State Park.

Electric vehicle plant coming to Duncan


CT&T Southeast, a joint venture between South Koreabased CT&T and the 2AM Group, plans to manufacture electric vehicles in Duncan, S.C. it was announced last week. The company plans to invest $21 million and create up to 370 jobs over the next five years in a 100,000-square-foot regional assembly and sales plant situated on the community college’s Tyger River Campus on Highway 290. The vehicles will be able to travel up to 50 or 100 miles on a single charge. CT&T Southeast hopes to begin assembly in September using imported parts at first. Its goal is to move to 100 percent American-made parts over 18 months. The company looks toward expanding, with plans to produce standard-speed vehicles, automobiles that can go more than 100 miles on a single charge, and lightweight buses that can carry up to 25 passengers. The company plans to start hiring in September.

“There are some things I’d like to do, I just don’t know what they are yet." Tennant has about six months to figure those things out, but he said even after that he will still be involved in some capacity with the department. While he has been at the helm, the Columbus Fire Department has grown with the community and has built and occupied a new firehouse. Tennant joined the department in the mid-1970s. Then, the department consisted of a small allvolunteer force and a couple of home-crafted fire trucks. Today, the department has one paid firefighter and 28 active volunteers in addition to junior members and several associate members who also belong to neighboring departments. “At some point in life, you have to look for ways to give back to the community in which you live,” he said. “At the same time, that’s the point of the department – giving back to people in need. Every once in a while, you have the ability to understand that the people who work here are able to make a difference in the lives of the people they serve.” But Tennant was never supposed to be here as an educator or as a fire chief. As a youngster, Tennant’s aptitude was tested at the behest of his mother to determine his best professional route. The tests said that he was best suited for the business world. Tennant disagreed vehemently, choosing instead to teach and then

to be on the front lines when the community needed him instead of chasing profit margins. “I wanted to be in an occupation where I could work with people…. It’s always been important to me to give back to the community that I’ve lived in,” he said. “That’s one of the reasons I became an educator and why I’m still involved in education. It’s a way to stay connected to the totality of Polk County and to help it improve as a whole. I believe we’re here to enrich one another’s lives. It’s easy to lose track of yourself and never find out how other people enrich your life, and I guess that’s why I’ve done what I’ve done. The good times have outweighed the bad, and I’ve enjoyed it. It may sound like altruistic pap but it’s just part of who I am.” In Tennant’s eyes, handling the emergency calls and putting out fires is only part of the job of his department. “We see people on the worst days of their lives and if you can provide some bit of comfort through that service, then you’re doing your job.” Tennant easily recalls some of his most harrowing and proudest days as chief – when his small department stood up to its biggest challenges: a natural gas leak at Silver Creek Road that caused a large evacuation and put his firefighters in considerable danger and a chemical spill in December of 1998 that left Tennant at odds with

will remain basically the same. The biggest change patrons will notice is the expanded seating area to accommodate more customers. And, of course, Charlie Ward’s homemade sausage will again take center stage. A website is planned from which to offer overnight delivery of Charlie’s sausage to out-of-town customers. “As our work begins, my larger dream is to encourage and assist others in Saluda in the creation of a master plan which will assure the preservation of our community for future generations. Now I am being provided an opportunity to give back to the place of my birth and upbringing,” said Clark Thompson. Thompson’s Store and Ward’s Grill was founded by Roy and Lola Ward in 1939.

(continued from page 3)

Thanks to the efforts of Thompson, a Saluda native, and Ward, who is the widow of Charlie Ward, the grill will open again tomorrow. They formed a partnership to purchase and operate the businesses and the 6,000 square feet of buildings. Renovations have started to improve the grill and store. Renovation work on the Thompson’s Store side will take more time to complete as will the expanded cooking facilities for the grill. The goal is to offer totally new and

Plans under way for Tryon’s 125th birthday party By John Clayton

Plans for Tryon’s 125th birthday celebration got under way last Thursday. The celebration is scheduled for Labor Day Weekend, so planners have just eight weeks to put together a parade, concerts and other attractions. Organizer Wanda May said she understands they have a tight schedule, but she is counting on involvement from local organizations and businesses to make the event a success. “The word is just now beginning to circulate,” said May. “Tryon always pulls together and is able to pull it off.” There is no charge for businesses and organizations to be involved in the parade or for their involvement in other displays and projects for the weekend. “What we are trying to do is keep it simple and not labor intensive so businesses and organiza-

job,” Tennant said. “It’s always been kind of a calling. “I hope I’ve helped in some shape or fashion to shape what the department does in the future.… It’s been an interesting run with this department. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes.”

tions can take the ball and run with it and do what they want to do,” May said. May said she wants to highlight Tryon’s 125-year history through displays and tributes to former residents such as iconic jazz performance artist Nina Simone and a poetry workshop conducted by Poet Laureate of North Carolina and current resident Cathy Bowers Smith. A parade is scheduled to begin in the late morning on Sept. 4. It will be followed by live music on the streets of Tryon. Though still in the planning stages, May said she is in talks with carriage companies about conducting carriage tours and with regional car clubs about bringing their classics to town for a car show. “There’s a lot of history to highlight in Tryon, so we’re very excited,” said May. “I think we can turn this into a fun weekend for people to enjoy.”

Runners take off just after the start of the inaugural Firecracker 5k run Saturday morning in Columbus. Eighty-four runners participated in the event. Asheville’s Stuart Moran and Katie Gibson were the overall winners. (staff photo)

Asheville runners dominate 5k event by John Clayton

While stuart Moran staged his own one-man British invasion of saturday morning’s Firecracker 5k in Columbus, Katie gibson won both the race and, perhaps more importantly, a bet. gibson won the women’s division of the 5k with a time of 18 minutes, 49 seconds, while Moran, a native of england who now lives and works in asheville, cruised to victory in the men’s division in 15:28. “I had a bet with a teammate that if I won, he’d have to wear a dress at Bele Chere,” said gibson, an asheville emergency veterinarian and member of Joe’s running Club. Moran and gibson also pocketed $100 each for their victories. Gibson finished more than two minutes ahead of spartanburg’s susan rogers (21:13) and was three minutes faster than third-

place Mandy Wolfe (21:31). “It was a very nice course,” said gibson of the inaugural race. “I really liked the first mile and felt good most of the way.” Gibson sprinted to the finish alongside Landrum doctor todd Walter, who had kept pace with her for the final section of the course. “He really helped me out the last half-mile,” gibson said of Walter, who finished first in his 40-44 age division. While gibson had competition to the finish line, Moran spent most of the race alone out front. “(the 15:28) was kind of on the slow end of what I normally run,” said Moran. “this course got kind of tough with some hills in the middle, and it’s easy to slack off a little bit when you’re out there by yourself.” Moran was more than two (Continued on page 15)

Artistic hillside (to ‘improve’ the view)

and came upon a nest of young mAsonry skunks, which they wanted to eradicate without forethought. onstruction Only after the fact, did I find out Brick, blockso&saddened stucco about it, rock, and was that someone would do such a heartless thing—I, and many others around, would be more than happy to talk to and educate folks about wildlife/nature and MWF,end 10/9 find some better alternatives over killing wildlife needlessly, or clear-cutting hillsides without thought. We need our creatures and wood lands. All part of the circle, flora and fauna serve a purpose here. In respecting them, we learn much, and honor the earth we share. A skunk’s scent is self-protection—they are intelligent, beautiful creatures with magnificent black and white plumed tails. Skunks are mild-tempered, have poor eyesight, are mostly nocturnal, and defend themselves by spraying scent only when cornered or attacked. They benefit farmers, gardeners, and landowners because they feed on large numbers of agricultural and garden pests. While young skunks are cute and like kittens, they are wild animals and it’s illegal to keep them as pets in most states. John and Alice Waddill had a bear visitor that shimmied 26 feet up a tree to their upper deck... he had his eye on the birdseed snacks, but Alice gave him the ‘teacher’s eye’ and he knew what side his bread was buttered on and left. Retired teachers can still strike fear into folks with that ‘look’... and it worked like a charm. Happy Birthday to Max Thomas — his birthday was in June, so I hope he’ll forgive my oversight last column! Max is now a whole year old, and I wish that young man many more birthdays ahead. July Birthday hugs go out to Doris Marion, Debi Thomas, Linda Poole, Rheta Foster, Nancy Weinhagen and Tosh

I believe that treatment of the nation to break its dependence on fossil fuels will be no different from the individual’s experience of detoxifying from a drug. The hard part will be committing to making the change. If drilling in the gulf is curtailed, shortages will occur and prices at the pump will rise. There will be anxiety and outrage. Accusations will be hurled (probably at whichever political organization is in power). Adjustments to lifestyle will be mandatory. Public transportation will become more fashionable and in demand. The ability to go and do whatever we want will be curtailed. The percentage of our income devoted to transportation will grow. We will suffer physical, emotional and economic distress. But we can survive this. After making the adjustments to the changes foisted upon us we will seek answers to new lifestyle arrangements. Hopefully we will finally find a way to create a national energy policy that addresses the true needs of the entire nation, rather than simply serving the wishes of the oil conglomerate and its shareholders. We should see a retooling of national industries toward transportation driven by electricity. We should see freight being moved over long distances more by rail than by truck (at least one of the country’s billionaires, Warren Buffet has already begun to invest heavily in rail transportation). Perhaps fuel cells or hydrides will provide an answer. Whatever the new answers are, it will take time to recover our balance and status. I don’t doubt the ability of Americans to solve these problems. We must first admit that there really are problems, and then set about doing the work required to get back on track. Overcoming this addiction will require R & D money and a lot of patience. Will the rupture in the Gulf wake us up?

The 11th season of Summer Tracks – Tryon’s summer concert series – continues on July 9 with the Marc Yaxley Trio and the Red Hot Sugar Babies in Rogers Park.

He will be joined by Cameron Austin on bass and Bill Berg on drums. Bill Berg is well known as the drummer from the 1980s-90s contemporary jazz band Flim & the BB’s. The Red Hot Sugar Babies are an energetic jazz band performing music of the roaring 1920s and 30s. They feature popular music made famous by vocalists like Bessie Smith and Ethel Waters, and jazz legends such as Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong. Wendi Loomis is featured on vocals and clarinet along with Joanne Domka (trumpet), Andrew Fletcher (piano), Lois Jolly (trumpet), Lin Llewellyn (banjo/guitar) and Lora Pendleton (bass).

Several gymnasts from Foothills Gymnastics Academy in Tryon competed on June 19 at the 2010 State Games of North Carolina. The competition is for any Level 1-3 gymnast in the state and was held in Mooresville, N.C. The Powerade State Games is a multi-sport, Olympic-style competition promoting physical fitness, and good sportsmanship to North Carolinians of all ages. The competition is designed to facilitate grass roots development of Olympic sports in our state while also providing personal development through physical fitness and sport. Patterned after the Olympic games, the State Games recognizes winners with gold, silver, and bronze medals. Win or lose, participants learn valuable lessons on how to set and reach goals, how to work as a team, and how to stay physically fit. More than 14,000 athletes and 650+ teams competed in this 25-sport festival, which is the largest in N.C. and one of the largest state games in the nation. Each gymnast competes in her level and is divided up by age brackets within that level. Gymnasts are judged on their USGA routines on vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor. Their combined scores rank them in the All-Around Competition. Making her competition debut, Ella Waldman (level 1, age four to five bracket) won five gold medals. Waldman won four

apparatus golds and won her fifth gold in the All-Around. Waldman received a first place ranking in her age category with the highest all-around score. Waldman is the daughter of Ethan and Renae Waldman of Tryon. Three Foothills gymnasts competed in the Level 1 (age six to eight bracket). Scout Harmon, daughter of Jeff and Kristin Harmon of Tryon, earned two gold medals and two silver medals, also earning silver in the AllAround ranking with the third highest score. Lauren Wilson, daughter of Brian and Julie Wilson of Mill Spring, won three apparatus silver medals and one bronze. Wilson also earned an All-Around silver ranking fourth. Breanna Cochran, daughter of Beth and Johnny Cochran of Rutherfordton, earned four bronze medals. Cochran won a silver medal placing fifth in this age division. Four Foothills gymnasts competed in the Level 2, seven year old division. Ragan Ashmore, daughter of Warren and Jackie Ashmore of Landrum, won one gold and three silver medals plus won a gold in the All-Around tying for second. Rollins Carter, daughter of Robert and Margot Carter of Tryon, won two gold medals, two silver medals, and also won a gold medal in the All-Around tying for the second place ranking. Julia Griffin, daughter of Kenny and

Tangela Griffin of Tryon, won three silver medals and one gold medal. In the All-Around, Griffin won a silver medal and finished with a third place ranking. Making her competition debut, Elsie-Morrah Padgett, daughter of Edwin and Ashley Padgett of Tryon, won one gold, one silver, and two bronze medals. Padgett earned a bronze in the All-Around and ranked eighth overall. Sarah Nonamaker, daughter of Michael and Melissa Nonamaker of Columbus, represented Foothills in the Level 2, age nine and up division. Nonamaker won one gold medal, two silver, and one bronze also earning a gold in the All-Around with a third place ranking. Competing in the Level 3, age 10+ division representing Foothills Gymnastics were two gymnasts.

tryon Daily Bulletin / the WorlD’s smallest Daily neWspaper




TLT seeks new home The Tryon Little Theater (TLT) has produced more theater fun over the years than most towns ever see. It has been a pleasure over the years to witness friends and neighbors, many amateurs, some professionals, bring shows to life, most often on the Tryon Fine arts Center stage. So many memories were made there. at one time, Tryon Little Theater’s home was the Tryon Fine Arts Center, where it housed its offices and performed all its shows. But both organizations had needs which diverged about ten years ago. The Tryon Fine arts Center needed to use its theater more often, run its own shows to pay for maintenance and renovation of the facility. Its had to assign its real costs for usage of the stage. Considering that Tryon Little Theater needed the stage for at least a week in advance of every show, just to put up the set and give actors some time to rehearse on the stage where they would perform, it was expensive. expense considerations also limited the kinds of shows TLT could produce, mostly to old Broadway hits which would draw a sure crowd. TLT wanted to branch out, with less risk. Thus, after 35 years together, though it still stages shows at TFaC, TLT began a migration away from TFaC in 1999, first to the old furniture store on Hwy. 176 and then in 2005 to the old Napa auto parts store. Now TLT is looking for a permanent “home.” The theater group board announced the formation of an ad hoc committee to begin looking for a site to build a “black box” theater, capable of housing set construction, costume storage, and rent-free performance space for smaller shows. TFaC is also at a crossroads. a consultant is being hired to help guide the arts center’s future plans, and to survey all the arts groups in the area. perhaps, these two planning efforts can lead to a reunifcation of sorts. Certainly it is hard enough to fund the arts. United efforts, as in the past, may help everyone succeed. — JB
