The first contract to build a new Polk County Department of Social Services was awarded Monday night. After fairly lengthy arguments about the cost, rebidding, and whether or not to “pre-qualify” general contractors – moves that

would have set back the construction schedule – commissioners Ray Gasperson, Renée McDermott and Cindy Walker voted to go forward now. By a 3-2 vote, the county board awarded a contract to Thompson Contractors Inc. for $224,132 to grade the entrance (Continued on page 5)

Tryon New Year's photo takes 1st prize Fine art photographer Elaine H. Pearsons of Columbus has won first place for the black and white category in the Carolina Gallery’s Photography Invitational, with her image, “Having a Ball.” Until recently, Pearsons has been known for her intensely colored images, as well as her form of handaltered, dimensional work. During the last year, working with Mike McCue on his new book project, “Tryon Architecture and Landscape,” Pearsons says she discovered that she was deeply moved when her chosen color photographs were converted into black and white. “After 30 years of dedication to color, I now comprehend and rejoice in the wonder, beauty and elegance of the black and white form.” Her winning image was taken at Tryon’s 2009 New Year's Eve dropping of the ball at the clock tower on Trade Street.

Landrum Cemetery beautification project under way by John Clayton

A beautification project for the historic Landrum Cemetery could be completed as early as next month if work continues at its current pace. The cemetery is located on E. Rutherford Street, near the eastern edge of the city. The project, which is the brainchild of the Landrum Community Development Committee, includes the addition of a stone wall along the cemetery’s edge, pillars at the main entrance, shrubbery and the replacement of the cemetery’s arching, wrought-iron sign that stood until a storm felled it this past winter. “It’s going to be really nice “It’s going to when this work is completed,” said Landrum City Manager be really nice Steve Wolochowicz. “It’s really when this work a main focal point when you’re is completed. It’s coming into the city.

Steve The fence that once guarded Wolochowicz the cemetery has already been taken down and the stone wall facing East Rutherford Street appears near completion. “The idea of trying to beautify the cemetery has been under discussion for a number of years,” said Wolochowicz. “It’s going to be a real visual enhancement to the city.” Right: Higinio Nava (foreground) and nephew Leno Nava erect a stone wall as part of a beautification project for the historic Landrum Cemetery.

Rocks, concrete thrown from trestle on U.S. 74

Four vehicles on U.S. 74 have been damaged recently by objects apparently tossed from the railroad trestle near S. Broadway St. in Forest City. Forest City Assistant Police Chief Bob Ward said in one case a five-pound piece of concrete was used. Apparently rocks also are being dropped or thrown.

1x1 7/23 the same from Polk County’s unemployment rate remained JDIX- to a N.C. EmMay to June, staying at 8.0 percent, according ployment Security Commission (ESC) report released recently. 037861

Polk unemployment remains at 8.0 percent

The May number was revised from an earlier report of 7.8 percent. The ESC reported 775 persons in Polk County were unemployed and 8,860 had jobs in June. Henderson County’s unemployment rate held steady at 8.1 percent from May to June. Rutherford County’s unemployment rate dropped from 14.9 percent to 14.7 percent, still leaving the county with the third highest unemployment rate in the state. North Carolina’s unemployment rate in June was 10.1 percent, with the rates decreasing in 35 counties and increasing in 45 others. Only Currituck County had a rate below 5 percent. Forty-four counties had rates between 5 and 10 percent, and 55 counties had rates 10 percent or above.

N.C. tops nation in copperhead bites last year

North Carolina ranked No. 1 nationwide for copperhead bites last year with 228, according to a report in the Raleigh News & Observer. Most bites came in urban counties, where subdivisions brush against woods and creeks. The copperhead often seeks shelter in wood piles or overgrown shrubs. It strikes victims in the middle of ordinary outdoor chores, such as weeding the garden or walking the dog in a pair of sandals. Though rarely fatal, a copperhead bite can lead to an amputated hand or foot. It can also spell months of rehabilitation.

Duke Energy not at peak demand

Although the heat has set records Duke Energy hasn’t set sales records this summer, according to the Raleigh News & Observer. In the past, Duke routinely set peak-demand usage records nearly every time the thermometer hit a high. But Duke’s last peak-demand record was set in 2007. The recession has affected power use, with businesses closing and fewer new customers, New energy-efficiency programs and green efforts on the part of customers are also affecting power usage, the company said. Old appliances are being replaced with more energy efficient appliances. This year the N.C. State Energy Office has promoted efficient appliances by offering incentives of $300 or more from the federal stimulus program.

Six Polk Co. schools earn ABCs honors by John Clayton

When North Carolina’s ABCs of Public Education results are released today, Polk County Schools officials expect to be among the state’s leaders with six of seven schools receiving recognition. Three schools – Tryon Elementary, Saluda Elementary and Sunny View Elementary – were named Honor Schools of Excellence with High Growth, while Polk Central Elementary, Polk County Middle School and Polk County High School earned School of Distinction honors. Polk Central and PCMS were High Growth schools, and PCHS had Expected Growth. Statistically, a school meets expected academic growth if students measure a year’s worth of growth on the state’s tests from one year to the next, and it meets high growth if students made more than a year’s worth of growth over that same time frame. “We have a lot of teachers and staff working hard to make sure that the students get all they possibly can out of the time they spend

“That was a “guestimate,” she said. “It is the ‘guestimate’ which should be thrown out, not the actual bid.” Odom cut costs in the new grading plan by using a somewhat steeper entrance road to the building parking lot, reducing the amount of dirt to be moved, Odom said. The new grading plan, however, will limit the future building plans at the site, county manager Ryan Whitson said. The original grading plan had space for the 11,950-square-foot DSS building and room for a future building, if needed, beside it, not quite as large. “The new plan would only allow a building under about 5,000 square feet to be built beside DSS,” Whitson said. “This additional building space, in my

with us (in school),” said Polk County Schools Accountability Director Dave Scherping. All seven Polk County schools previously met federally mandated Adequate Yearly Progress goals, leaving North Carolina’s measures of progress to be met for the 2008-09 school year. Tryon Elementary led the way with 94.5 percent of students tested performing at or above proficiency. Saluda joined at 92.7 percent and Sunny View at 92.1 percent. In order to receive Honor School of Excellence recognition, schools must have a minimum of 90 percent of students test at or above proficiency. School of Distinction honorees have a minimum of 80 percent tested at or above proficiency. PCMS led the Schools of Distinction with 88.3 percent, followed by PCHS at 87.2 percent and Polk Central at 85.3 percent. Scherping said he is particularly proud of the school system’s performance this year given thoughts, was never intended to expand DSS. It was just to have in case the county has to be more involved with mental health and we have to have a building for that. A 5,000-square-foot building would be more than ample for mental

the economic climate that has clouded everything in the recent past, including education. “It’s been a stressful year for families, and this really shows their commitment to education by making sure their children are put in a position to learn,” said Scherping. “Our informal polling with other school systems around us has led us to believe that students’ results fell significantly in those areas.” Only Polk County’s Early College Program, which consists of about 40 students, did not meet Expected or High Growth ExEcutrix's noticE plateaus this year.

Once approved, they will be able to lease the equipment for periods of one day to one week. The energyefficient testing equipment costs between $10,000 and $15,000 per set. With the grant money, IDPC hopes to buy several sets for lease. The equipment will test for air leaks throughout the house, and an infrared camera will identify the loss of heat in a house. “The camera will find any voids in windows or doors,” Spires told the Forest City Daily Courier. “With the camera, you can actually see the cold air or hot air leaking through.” Edwards said without proper For ideas go to or call 1-800-visit nc equipment, the loss of energy might FOR IDEAS GO TO VISITNC.COM OR CALL 1-800-VISIT NCnot be identified. “Just because a north carolina house has insulation doesn’t mean it

is energy efficient,” Edwards said. Isothermal instructors will either train students in the construction trades class, or training might eventually be provided through Continuing Education. None of those logistics have been finalized. Spires said the grant funding has three components — the creation of certified workers trained in weatherization to create small business; providing the equipment; and marketing the program. IPDC will create a three-tiered marketing campaign to build interest among the suppliers and potential suppliers, as well as those who want the services. None of the energy equipment is being paid for with stimulus funds. At the end of training in the construction trades classes, Spires said, some people might be interested in entering that phase of home building. There are no trained energy auditors with the equipment in the area, so the jobs now have to go to outsiders. Since the start-up equipment is so costly, a person beginning a new business will not have to buy the equipment, but he may lease it from IPDC. The money paid for leasing the equipment will be used to keep equipment upgraded and the program sustainable, Spires said. The equipment will include a blower door, infrared camera, moisture meter, duct-testing fan, residential combustion analyzer and a combustible gas leak detector. Some of the low-income people whose homes are being renovated can also save a lot of money by having the homes properly tested. The equipment will identify any leaky windows, holes in insulation or holes in the duct work and other places where air can leak. People who make their homes more energy efficient will receive state and federal tax breaks, Edwards said. Once the training has been complete and certifications are complete, the energy assessments probably will begin in a few months.

Bob died in the arms of his beloved wife, Nancy, and family. He is a native of Boston, Mass., the younger child of the late William Henry Meanix and Genevieve A. Burns Meanix. He was preceded in death in 1958 by a stillborn infant; in 1960 by five-week-old twin son, Paul Francis Meanix; in 1992 by both granddaughter Kelly Noreen Garza, 13 months, and grandson Tyler James Meanix, three years old. Surviving are Nancy Meanix, his wife of 55 years; six sons: Robert William Meanix Jr. and wife Kelly of Downingtown, Pa.; Richard Emery Meanix and wife Colleen of Parkesburg, Pa.; James Howard Meanix and wife Denise of Exton, Pa.; Kevin George Meanix and wife Ann of Parkesburg, Pa.; David Edward Meanix of New York City; and John Francis Meanix and wife Angela of Coatesville, Pa,; and three daughters: Janet Meanix-Garza and husband A.J. of Houston, Texas; Ellen Meanix Helfrick and husband Richard of York, Pa.; and Katherine Veronica Zubaly and husband Joseph of Rathdrum, Idaho; 18 living grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; numerous nephews and nieces; brother William Henry Meanix Jr., and wife June of Tryon; sister-in-law Mary (Polly) Greenish Curran and husband James of Hancock, N.

14 at a ballroom dancing school in Boston. In 1948 he graduated from English High School in Boston. Bob majored in psychology at Dartmouth College, Hanover, N.H., graduating in 1952. He spent two years on active duty with the U.S. Navy, based in Norfolk, Va. They married in February, 1955 in Boston. Bob then had several sales jobs before joining the Ballymore Company, manufacturer of hydraulic access lifts and industrial ladders in West Chester, a western suburb of Philadelphia, Penn. He spent 33 years in industrial sales there, advancing to vicepresident of sales with responsibility for sales, marketing and product development. Upon retirement in August 1995, Bob and Nancy moved to the magnificent mountains near Asheville, N.C. They joined Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Brevard, N.C., where Bob served as a lector and on both the pastoral council and the pastoral care ministry group. Bob was an awesome husband, encouraging father and grandfather, and mentor to many in Alcoholics Anonymous. Bob was a golf nut who had twice achieved the golfer’s dream of a hole-in-one, a bridge enthusiast who loved to redouble, and an avid reader of mysteries. Bob and his Irish sense of humor, booming voice and welcoming smiles will be missed by all. Funeral mass will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Friday, Aug. 6 at 11 a.m. Instead of flowers, donations may be made to the Hospice Center of Transylvania Regional Hospital, Brevard, N.C. 28712.

Locally, an increase in the eithersex deer season on Jordan Game Land from the current moderate season to the maximum season will take effect. Also, Whitehall Plantation Game Land in Bladen County will open as a permit-only game land. A list of all the regulations that will take effect for the 2010-2011 seasons, as well as 2010-2011 deer seasons and other major regulatory changes, is available at An online edition of the “2010-2011 North Carolina Inland Fishing, Hunting and Trapping Regulations Digest” will be available at www. on Aug. 1, 2010.

After hearing public comments and reviewing written comments, the 19 members of the wildlife commission will meet in November and vote on adopting these proposed rules. Adopted rules will go into effect Aug. 1, 2011. – article submitted

Tim Broek, longtime TROT volunteer, wins regional award The North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA) has named longtime TROT volunteer Carol Ten Broek of Tryon as the 2010 Volunteer of the Year for Region 3, which encompasses North and South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. Broek is now eligible for NARHA’s National Volunteer Of The Year award to be announced at the organization’s annual meeting in Denver in November. Tim Broek serves as TROT’s volunteer coordinator, recruiting new volunteers and scheduling volunteer assignments for TROT lessons. “Carol was just about the very first person who came forward to volunteer when TROT was first announced seven years ago,” said program coordinator Norm Powers. “She built a volunteer list virtually from scratch and

makes sure there are adequate volunteers for each rider’s lesson. She’s a great example of how volunteerism can positively affect people’s lives.” Broek will be attending the NARHA annual meeting in November as a guest of honor and will be acknowledged during the meeting’s annual banquet. TROT teaches horseback riding skills to special needs adults and children, and is recognized by NARHA as a Premier Accredited Center. It will be holding its summer volunteer training on Tuesday, August 24, starting at 6 p.m. in FENCE’s great room. Fall classes serving nearly 20 riders from Polk, Rutherford, Hendersonville, Greenville and Spartanburg counties will begin on Saturday, September 11. – article submitted

But right now my nomination could understand how Morgan for the most interesting potential could have been an enthusiastic biography is for U.S. Senator supporter of liberal Frank Graham

in his 1950 U.S. Senate campaign and then 10 years later manage the gubernatorial campaign for segregationist candidate Dr. I. Beverly Lake. Or if you could figure out how Morgan developed a conservative reputation as a state senator and then, when, elected state attorney general in 1968, made the office a vigorous consumer advocacy agency. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 1974 as a moderate, with considerable support from conservatives, he was defeated six years later by a campaign that defined him as an ultra- liberal. A few years later Morgan worked for liberal Walter Mondale’s campaign for president. So what was Morgan-a conservative or a liberal? I think his biographer will find that he was both, and he was neither--like most North Carolinians. Maybe the stories will help. Morgan still feels great affection for Beverly Lake, but he says that he tried to get Lake to take a more moderate position on school seg-



regation in the 1960 gubernatorial campaign. Morgan remembers, “Dr. Lake said, ‘Now Robert, you have to remember that it is in the middle of the road where you are most likely to get hit and killed.’” Morgan thinks people of different persuasions can work together if they can put ideology aside. Morgan says that legendary UNC playwright and professor Paul Green was way too liberal for Harnett County, where both Green and Morgan grew up. However, one of Green’s cousins was very conservative even by Harnett Country standards. Nevertheless, when Morgan brought the liberal Senator George McGovern to Harnett County, Green’s cousin and McGovern ate breakfast together at the local café. Later Green’s cousin told Morgan that he might have voted for McGovern for president if he had known him before. Good stories and a possible answer to why North Carolina has both a conservative and a liberal face could make Robert Morgan’s biography a great book.

Knights donate to T.R.O.T. The Knights of Columbus recently presented a check for $700 to Melissa Le Roy, who was filling in for T.R.O.T. program co-coordinator Norm Powers. The program celebrated its seventh anniversary this past spring and served 19 riders from Polk, Rutherford and Henderson counties in North Carolina and Greenville and Spartanburgh counties in South Carolina. The newly added “sensory trail,” a series of activites outside of the riding arena, is designed to stimulate visual, tactile and auditory perceptions for those riders facing such challenges. The trail consists of “the Post Office,” a series of color-coded mailboxes into which riders deliver similarly color-coded mail, a mounted board with holes in a variety of shapes and colors, into which riders must insert a matching block, and “the Beach,” a 16-foot long box filled with sand, which alters the horse’s gait while also providing the auditory stimulation of hooves crunching through the footings. In the fall session, a pole maze will be added, which is a series of colored poles arranged such that riders must negotiate a colored
