A federal grant attained through the efforts of the Boys and Girls Club of the Upstate will keep a successful afterschool program open at Landrum’s O.P. Earle Elementary School. The $375,000 grant was one of 13 across the state received from 21st Century Community Learning Centers grants, which are authorized by the No Child Left Behind law. The $375,000 will be divided equally between O.P. Earle of Spartanburg District One and Pacolet Elementary of District Three, giving each school $187,500. Boys and Girls Club of the Upstate President Greg Tolbert wrote the grant, which replaced the expiring grant District One officials previously had in place for the program. “These grants usually have a non-profit organization that manages it, and in this case, it’s the Boys and Girls Club,” said O.P. Earle Principal Nita High. “They’re going to provide some academic support as well as other opportunities.” Tolbert was out of town and could not be reached for comment. Students are to receive supplemental academic instruction and tutoring in the four core subjects as well as mentoring. Recreational and arts activities will also be part of the program, according to Ann Greene, assistant superintendent for curriculum instruction and staff development for District One. The after-school program will continue to be open until 6 p.m. each school day and be free to the families of O.P. Earle students. “When we knew the grant that I wrote last year was going to expire, we contacted the Boys and Girls Club,” Greene said. “We knew this was a wonderful program to accelerate

jbtrees - page 10

students' learning.” She said she expects the program to mirror a successful after-school program the district has had ongoing at Inman Elementary with about an hour of classroom instruction and the other time filled with indoor and outdoor recreational activities and other programs designed to “enrich character development.” The grant, which is scheduled to last for four years, provides funding for up to 125 students. “With funding for that many kids, I think we can service all those students who need it,” said Greene. Greene said some O.P. Earle parents have grown to depend on the after-school program because in many cases both parents work and during tough economic times find it difficult to budget for child care. “There has been considerable gnashing of teeth with some parents when we didn’t know whether or not we’d be able to offer this program,” Greene said. “A lot of the parents have depended on it and have liked it because there’s no worry about after-school pick up, and they know their children are on campus in a safe, school setting.” The Boys and Girls Club will control the budget for the program. Greene said she expects most of the funds to go to salaries and stipends for the staff, while some moneys will be spent on supplies and other needs for the program. High said she expects the program to be running by the middle of the first week of school, which begins Aug. 16. “I hope we have a lot of students take advantage of it,” said High. “It’s a great opportunity for parents who now have to pay for childcare to get it for free during the school year.”

St. Luke’s purchases bone density machine, warns of osteoporosis

Osteoporosis results in more than 1 million hip, spine, and wrist fractures annually. This disorder affects nearly one-half of all post menopausal women, the largest group at high risk for osteoporosis. “Osteoporosis is a silent disease until it is complicated by fractures – fractures that can occur following minimal trauma,” warns St. Luke’s Hospital’s Orthopaedic Surgeon Brian Rosenberg, MD. “Osteoporosis can be prevented, and can be diagnosed and treated before any fracture occurs.” Osteoporosis, which literally means “porous bone,” is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As the bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased. The loss of bone occurs “silently” and progressively. “Everyone should know their risks for developing osteoporosis,” encourages Sandra McCormack, MD. “And anyone who is at risk for osteoporosis should have their bone density checked. A bone density test can be performed for patients who may have osteoporosis and is also useful to monitor the progression of osteoporosis and the response to treatment.” St. Luke’s Hospital recently purchased a new bone density machine, the GE Prodigy Advance Full Scan. This machine provides fast scans detecting bone loss quicker and determining response to therapy sooner. In just 30 seconds, this GE Prodigy Advance Full Scan highly precise densitometer helps to identify osteoporosis risk. It can also aid in determining the effects of osteoporosis treatment. In the past, osteoporosis could only be detected after you broke a bone. A bone density test makes it possible to know your risk of breaking bones before the fact. Some people should be tested for osteoporosis at an earlier age. Knowing the signs to look for can help you understand when the time is right to have a bone density test. If you are ever un-

sure, you should discuss this with your doctor. Dr. Rosenberg says the most common fractures associated with osteoporosis occur at the hip, spine and wrist. The incidence of these fractures, particularly at the hip and spine, increases with age in both women and men. The good news is that osteoporosis is now a largely treatable condition and, with a combination of lifestyle changes and appropriate medical treatment, many fractures can be avoided. Using a bone densitometer, physicians can measure patient bone density and follow it over time. If the patient’s bone density is low, or decreases at an abnormally fast rate, the patient may be at risk for osteoporosis. Through changes in diet, exercise habits and/or medication, further deterioration of bone can be prevented. The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends bone density testing if: • You’re a woman age 65 or older; • You’re a postmenopausal woman under age 65 with one or more risk factors for osteoporosis; • You’re a man age 70 or older; • You’re a man between age 50 and 70 with one or more risk factors for osteoporosis; • You’re older than age 50 and you’ve experienced a broken bone; • You’re a postmenopausal woman and you’ve stopped taking estrogen therapy or hormone therapy. Research hasn’t yet determined the optimal interval for repeat bone density tests, or the right age to stop testing. However, two or more years may be needed between tests to reliably measure a change in your bone density. Your doctor can recommend the best testing interval for you based on your personal medical history and osteoporosis risk factors. For more information, or to schedule your bone density test, call St. Luke’s Radiology at 828894-3525, ext. 3590. – article submitted

Joan Puma prepares a tent at a Bedouin encampment. (photo submitted)

Summer Bible adventures at Tryon Presbyterian Church Summer Bible Adventure at Tryon Presbyterian Church is using an approach called “active learning” to apply the Bible’s lessons to everyday life. In active learning, stories come alive through experiences with the five senses such as smelling bread baking, sitting in a type of tent found in the desert, seeing people dressed as figures from biblical times, or acting out a story. The church’s educational building will be transformed into the Jericho Road from August 2 through 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. Children (ages five and up, youth and adults are invited). Lesley Bush, director of music and communications, says not to worry about dinner. He is in charge of a menu of freshly prepared meals that will be served in the Jericho Road Cafe (previously the church’s fellowship hall) each evening from 6 to 6:30 p.m. followed by the Bible Adventure from 6:30 to 8 p.m. During the week, the Bible Adventure will focus on a different aspect of the Good Samaritan through workshops that will take place each evening. This repetition gives participants the opportunity to delve more deeply into the meaning of the story and how it applies to their lives. For example, participants will gather in a Bedouin Encampment where they will meet a Levite and hear his side of the story. In another workshop, those in-

TDBPROMO - page 23

volved will “eat their way through the Bible” by discovering herbs from biblical times and preparing food with them to see the connection between providing food and God’s mercy. Dramatizing the Good Samaritan with costumes, a script, a cast of characters, and an audience will make the story of the Good Samaritan come alive. In addition to the Bible Adventure for children, youth, and adults, two additional adult classes will be offered: Parables of Jesus and Historical Heroes. These classes will meet from 6:30 to 8 p.m. According to Rev. Mary Potter, director of the Summer Bible Adventure, “Kids are really active and they get bored if they are asked to sit for an hour and a half. This way of learning is not only fun and meaningful for children, but it gets young people and adults involved as well.” All in the community are welcome. For more information, contact the church office at 828-859-6683. Spaces are limited. Parents must register their children prior to the start of Bible Adventure. Adults can register by calling the church office. Registrations assure that dinner will be available for all. Check out the church website at www.tryonpres.com for more information or to print a registration form for Summer Bible Adventure.

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

“In God there is no large or small” I’m at Camp Glen Arden again this summer, working in the kitchen. Everything is the same as in years past, yet everything is different. The maintenance man who worked here for 64 years, ever since this camp began, died suddenly in a tractor accident the second week that camp was in session. At first there was shock, then tears. Now there’s a silent empty place. Because this is a camp for happy little girls, many of whom did not know Raymond except that he was the maintenance man, we’ve kept the camp activities going as if there was not a tragedy, sort of like it would be if Raymond were still here. Maybe this “internalizing’ of the tragedy has made us all think a bit more deeply about what it means to lose someone so dear to us all, someone who was not an important person on the big world scene, but someone who was always there, ready to help make life easier for us adults and a lot of silly little girls. It has made me think about what we take for granted, and what brings us comfort in our lives. My cabin is surrounded by hemlocks, many of them dying. I know that soon they will be gone, and this cabin will no longer be in the cool shade. Will there be something else to take their place? Will there be someone to take Raymond’s place? Will we remember that quiet presence, or will we just be a little less comfortable, looking for a product or escape to replace what has been lost? At the top of this road there is a 1000+ acre tract of land being clear cut. Trucks loaded with huge logs roll past the kitchen all day long, day after day. That 1000 acres was inherited by a man in Florida who was not satisfied with the quiet comforts

Conservation Corner Betsy Burdett

of life, but sought happiness by means of high living with a bit of cocaine to enhance ‘reality’. Unfortunately, he could not financially maintain that lifestyle and borrowed money against his inheritance. The result is an ugly clearcut that will take 50 years to heal and 100 years to be like it was before being cut. After all the hulla-ballu about the steep timbercut near Harmon Field, I want to show you all what real environmental devastation looks like. I think about those trees that stood for so long, providing habitat for thousands of animals, not to mention a great place for campers to walk and ride the horses for campouts. One man’s folly brought devastation to 1000 acres and all that was on it. And that was an important man in the big scene. It’s the ‘unimportant’ people, and the ‘unimportant’ plants and animals that give us life’s comfort and security. Endangered species are important in that they remind us that things get lost forever if we don’t take care of what we’ve got now. It’s honesty, service, kindness, responsibility, acceptance, and simple caring that bring us comfort, and happiness. What would it be like without trees to give us shade? It’s even harder to imagine that than it is to think of camp without Raymond. It’s the simple things that we value the least in the present and miss the most when they are gone. What do we honor and value most? Our actions, and our lives, should reflect the answer to that question.

Bees are essential to food production by aiding in the pollination of crops, but in recent years, the numbers of these agricultural helpers have declined because of disease and pests. To help ensure a healthy bee population in the state, the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services recommends beekeepers buy bees only from dealers permitted to sell in the state. “By purchasing from permitted sellers, beekeepers protect our bee and honey industry and avoid buying diseased or Africanized bees or potentially transporting other harmful pests,” said Don Hopkins, state apiarist with NCDA&CS. “Permitted sellers, either from North Carolina or
