Polk County road work should not affect school opening traffic tomorrow, DOT says by John Clayton

Road construction in several areas of Polk County has caused concern that parents could experience delays as they take children to school for the first day of the new school year tomorrow. But N.C. Department of Transportation (DOT) engineer

Aaron Powell said he does not expect delays as schools begin the 2010-11 school year Wednesday. Three projects – resurfacing work being done on a section of Hwy. 108 between Tryon and Columbus, construction on another section of Hwy. 108 at Pea Ridge Road east of Columbus

Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties

and resurfacing work on I-26 – have led to traffic tie-ups all around Polk County recently. Powell said he hoped Wednesday, at the latest, would be the final day of the repaving work on Hwy. 108 between Tryon and Columbus. (Continued on page 6)

‘Theater of the Mind’ lost on youth today, Drake says by Jeff Byrd

You know Bill Drake is old school when he says he counts Arthur Godfrey (1903-1983) as his mentor. He is so old school that when he teaches today, he sometimes loses his students. That hurts, he said, since as a longtime Spartanburg radio personality, he is a professional at engaging an audience. But, Drake said Monday that he has noticed a “generational phenomenon” when working with college students. They can’t picture the stories in their mind. Drake teaches as an adjunct professor at Wofford College, mostly Public Speaking classes. But one year, he was offered the chance to teach a course titled, “The History of American Broadcast.” He described his work with students in that course during an interview for the Western Carolina Radio Club Monday at

Isothermal Community College in Columbus. Interviewing Drake for the club was Dick Briggs, also a man with a long career in radio and television. Briggs, who worked in broadcast in Texas, Augusta, Ga. Macon, Ga. and Hilton Head, S.C. was well-known locally as the newscaster for WSPA-TV in Spartanburg some years ago. Currently Briggs runs his own media brokerage business out of his home in Landrum. Briggs asked Drake about the “generational phenomenon.” “When I was asked to teach the history of broadcast class, I asked the Wofford dean, ‘What are my qualifications?’” Drake recalled. “The dean said, ‘You are the history of American broadcast!’” “I felt the class in the past had put too much emphasis on TV and not enough on radio,” he explained. So when the semester

Bill Drake (left), longtime Spartanburg radio personality, was interviewed by Dick Briggs of Landrum, also a longtime broadcaster, for the program at the Western Carolina Radio Club Monday afternoon. (photo by Jeff Byrd)

“We can visualize what radio was. We have the ability to picture things in our minds. Kids don’t. If they can’t see it, or watch it on their cell phone, they can’t do it at all. They thought broadcasting started with 'All In The Family.'”

-- Bill Drake

The 103.3 FM frequency serves an area from Gaffney, S.C. on the east, to Greenville, S.C. on the west, and from Union, S.C. to the south and Tryon, N.C. on the north. Drake broadcasts from his same, former WSPA studio at 6665 Pottery Road, Spartanburg, now part of the Restoration Church property. His company, Awake With Drake LLC, sells its own sponsorships to pay the bills. “It’s been five years and things are still tough,” Drake told about 35 members of the Western Carolina Radio Club assembled Monday. “I’ve been on air for 51 years, and the question I ask myself about every five minutes now is, ‘When do you hang it up?’ Do I quit or just downsize? “I’m addicted. I really don’t know if I could just give it up all at once.” While it is tough doing the show and marketing the

Drake still talks about whatever strikes him — sports, politics, the weather. He practices what he calls “relationship broadcasting,” a term he draws from the book of Romans, where we are instructed to, “Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.” Even in the disc jockey formats, there used to be a radio “personality,” speaking and engaging listeners between songs. “There is no one who does what I do anymore,” Drake said. “Variety broadcasting.

Green Grass Cloggers Green Grass Cloggers is the original high-stepping Appalachian mountain clogdancing dance company. Formed in 1971 by students at East Carolina University, the Cloggers quickly gained national recognition because of their original eclectic style of dance, which was radically different from the traditional North Carolina team clogging of this period. By 1974 the Green Grass Cloggers had achieved a national reputation, having won two world championships, and were invited to perform at major folk festivals throughout the United States and Canada. From 1977 to 1987, some of the dancers went on tour internationally and became

known as the “Road Team” while the remaining dancers (the “Home Team”) stayed in Greenville and performed at local festivals throughout the state. In 1980 the Road Team relocated permanently to Asheville, N.C., and they still perform two to three times per year at selected venues. The Home Team in Greenville remains active and keeps the tradition of the Green Grass Cloggers alive, still dancing the original routines and continuing to recruit and train new dancers.

Mill Spring Ag Center partners   with TBO, FHS at flea market Saturday This Saturday, August 28, at the flea market at the Mill Spring Ag Center, the theme is “Back to School.” The Ag Center is partnering with Thermal Belt Outreach and Foothills Humane Society’s “On the Road” show as the featured non-profits this month promoting the “Back to School” theme and petadoption obedience training. Other flea market vendors will offer specific back to school items in their booths like clothing, backpacks, shoes, sports equipment, books, supplies, computer furniture and electronic equipment. Foothills Humane Society’s “On the Road” show brings adoptable dogs out in public to help showcase and socialize them and send them home with their new families. They are ready to leave the flea market as your new best friend having had all their shots, been spayed or neutered, with their microchip in place and as graduates of a unique and dedicated doggie obedience training branded as “100% Recyclable.” Program creator Kayla Parrish of The Educated Horse and More explains, “‘100% Recyclable’ is designed to rehabilitate and train shelter dogs into model citizens. Many of the dogs that have already been adopted through the program were on their very last chance.

Give a gift that will be appreciated all year long! fts TR

We want the public to know that just because they are an adult dog in the shelter does not mean that they are damaged or have issues or are uncontrollable. Many of the dogs that go through class have better manners by the time they are adopted than most people’s pets that they have had since puppyhood.” Thermal Belt Outreach will also be at the flea market accepting “Back to School” donations and also distributing those supplies through a brief needs-based application process. Call TBO at 894-2988 for a list of needed supplies. The organizations’ Feed-A-

Kid program will also be on site at the flea market and TBO is accepting donations to be dropped off at the flea market for their tag sale set to be held at the Ag Center in October. Dollar hot dogs and live entertainment will also be at this Saturday’s flea market. Come out and socialize at the old Mill Spring School for some “Back to School” excitement. Vendors are wanted. Flea market hours are from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Vendors setup at 7 a.m. No early pull outs. Contact Carol Lynn Jackson at 828-817-2308 to register to be a vendor. – article submitted

The Columbus Lions Club recently treated the members of Cub Scout Pack 151 to a night out at a Forest City Owls baseball game. Both Lions and Cubs enjoyed watching the Owls win 8-3 over Thomasville in an exciting finish after leading by only one run in the sixth inning. During the seventh inning stretch, Cub Alex InDD - page 7 0tfn0COnPearson (below) got cheers from the crowd when he raced the Owl mascot around the diamond and won by executing a head-first slide into home plate. Other Scouts also participated in contests on the field. Cub Scout Pack 151 has 32 Scouts ranging from six to 11 years old. Above: Cubs Dustin Walker, Christopher (little brother) and Alex Pearson, and Jonathan Stoll. Lion Bonnie Wood smiles down. (photos submitted)
