GOP finds temporary home on Mills St.

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Only 50 cents

local triathletes grab gold

by Leah Justice

After about eight months without a permanent place to meet, the Polk County Republican Party has leased a building on Mills Street temporarily. The GOP headquarters building roof collapsed last December following heavy snowfall and the building was condemned. The building was later torn down. The Republican party has been holding meetings in different places, mostly using the Polk County Courthouse. Republican Chair Cheryl Every says the party has leased the building located at 206 Mills St. and will be there at least through this November ’s election. Some businesses are interested in buying the former GOP lot, but it has not sold yet. Every says they have options regarding building a new building, but have to wait on the sale of the lot to proceed. (see photo of lot on page 4).

Local triathletes, Carol Jean Vosburgh and Tracey Hudson competed August 28, in the challenging Lake Lure Triathlon. Both Vosburgh and Hudson won gold medals, finishing first in their age groups. The event included a 500m swim in Lake Lure, followed by a 25K bike, ending with a 5K uphill then downhill run that finished on the beach. The charity event drew nearly 400 athletes, and is among the most scenic and well organized triathlons in the area. (photo submitted)

Polk County Schools officials plan on testing a computer phone service called a Voice Over IP (VoIP) through e-Polk PANGAEA if an agreement can be reached with current phone service Windstream to release the needed phone numbers. According to Polk County Schools Technology Director Dave Scherping, the costcutting trial will start with a couple of phones in his office Sept. 20 and then spread to the bus garage and Early College if found to be effective. “We’re looking for a more economical way to run our phone systems,” said Scherping. “We are a very large phone user, and we think e-Polk and PANGAEA can provide a more economical way to run our phones as well as give us additional features that are unavailable to us right now.” Those features include caller ID and call-forwarding to cell

phones and to other offices. “We’ve been using a traditional phone system and it works great – we have no issues with them,” said Scherping. “But we do have an extensive list of features that need to be added.” If the trial is successful, the VoIP system would eventually be introduced throughout Polk County Schools. But the first step is getting Windstream to release the numbers currently used by Polk County Schools, which Scherping said the company is not required to do under law. “We’re a big customer for them and they’ve invested a lot in this area,” said Scherping of Windstream. “So, they’re not required to make that move and they’ve been unwilling to move them.” Scherping said negotiations are ongoing to move the required numbers and lines for the VoIP by the Sept. 20 start date.

Sheriff Hill offers safety tips for children going back to school Sheriff Donald Hill of Polk County offers some safety tips for those youngsters who will be walking back and forth to school this year. “Parents can teach their children the following safety tips which will inform the youngsters of the danger signs to watch for and avoid when walking between school and home,” Sheriff Hill said. “Drivers should be cautious of children walking back and forth to school,” added the sheriff. “We can all learn from the safety tips below and abide by them to make Polk County safer for all.” • While walking, remember to always travel with a friend.

Wolverines hammer Brevard, 56-0 by John Clayton

Brevard’s “worst loss in team history” only lasted a week, thanks to a prolific scoring performance from host Polk County High School Friday night. The Wolverines pounded Brevard 56-0, just one week after the Blue Devils began the season with a 48-0 home loss to Owen. PCHS quarterback Andre Overholt accounted for five of Polk County’s six first-half touchdowns as the Wolverines jumped out to a 42-0 lead by intermission. “Honestly, I was a little surprised,” said PCHS head coach Bruce Ollis after the lopsided victory against a team the Wolverines met in the opening round of the state playoffs a year ago. “We got a shutout and that’s hard to do in high school football these days. “I thought our line executed real well up front and we were able to run the ball, which is something we wanted to do and the big plays were there when we wanted to execute them.” Overholt scored on runs of 2 and 6 yards in the first half and connected on touchdown passes of 73 yards to tight end Chandler Miller, 25 yards to Joel Booker and 65 yards to Kerry Littlejohn. Any rust Overholt may have shown from a mostly inactive preseason due to an ankle injury was gone against Brevard (0-2). He threw for 182 yards on 6 of 7 passing. “When you complete six of your seven pass attempts and half of those go for touchdowns, there isn’t much else you can say,” Ollis said. Miller added a first-half interception that he returned 43 yards for a touchdown to the first-half scoring juggernaut.

Overholt and most of PCHS starting unit sat out most of the second half Booker, who rushed five times for 48 yards, added a 25-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and running back Tyler Ridings added a 2-yard score in the fourth. Ridings finished with a team-high 75 yards. Meanwhile, the PCHS defense held Brevard to 99 yards of total offense en route to the shutout. ollis said he was happy to see his reserves get a lot of playing time with things well in hand in the second half. “We got some time for our backups, so it was good to see them get some snaps on a Friday night in front of people,” said Ollis. PCHS (2-0) travels to RSCentral Friday night.

Cardinals tame Devildogs by John Clayton

after a convincing 36-9 win Friday night over Class 3a opponent travelers rest, a growing confidence within the Landrum High School football program overflowed. “this isn’t like anything I’ve been a part of in my three years,” said junior quarterback Brandon Cannon, whose 301 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns – two rushing and two passing – was just a chorus in a largely dominating Cardinals performance. “Even the coaches were different on the sidelines. I think what we’ve got here is something special. It’s something I haven’t had here before. You can tell the coaches are fired up about it, too – not just us. We’re all excited.” after clinging to a 14-9 lead at the half, LHS exploded for 16 unanswered points in the final 1:08 of the third quarter. Cole McDowell’s 47-yard touchdown reception from Cannon started the barrage and was followed by a safety with 50 seconds left in the quarter. Following the free kick, LHS took over at the travelers rest 44 and McDowell rushed for 15 yards and then went the remaining 29 for a score to put the Cardinals ahead 30-9 with five seconds remaining in the third quarter. McDowell turned in a career night with game highs in rushing yardage (146) and receiving yards (75), and he was quick to give credit to the offensive linemen. “they’re the heart of this offense and I don’t get anywhere without them,” McDowell said. “So, my heart goes out to them. I’m thankful to have them.” The Cardinals rolled up 475 yards of total offense, and after a shaky opening two quarters, the LHS defense shut out the Devildogs (0-2) in the second half. travelers rest’s spread attack was held in check for most of the night, finishing with 205 yards of

To the Editor: The following column was written by Dr. Stephen Gordin of Gowensville and published in the Aug. 25 edition of the The State. A Hindu proverb tells of five blind men trying to describe an elephant. One feels the trunk and concludes that an elephant is a snake. One feels a leg and concludes it is a tree trunk. And so it goes, each man making generalizations about the whole based on his limited experience. But the sum of the parts is, of course, a different animal. The story is about perspective, something that is sadly lacking in today’s political environment. We need to develop some, or else we risk losing our nation as we know it. This is not hyperbole. After all, what is it that makes a country? In Europe, geography and ethnicity created natural boundaries, leading to their development from the various principalities; a shared history and common enemies helped forge the bonds. Yet America possessed none of those things at the beginning. Instead, we were held together by a shared philosophy. The freedoms enshrined in our founding documents have been the basis for what maintained us as a united federation. But how strong are those ties? Leading up to the Civil War, their agrarian economy and culture, aided by geography, slow travel and poor communications, had led Southerners to identify themselves as a separate country. In other

words, what had happened in Europe centuries earlier happened to some extent here. Obviously, there were many issues involved, but the feeling of a different national identity was a motivating factor for many Southerners. That such could happen today seems inconceivable, with immediate communications and fast transportation.

We hear the news about a tube The Tryon of toothpaste killingDaily a woman, Bulletin about the possible side effect of a children’s vaccine, about the unemployed, the uninsured and oil-covered turtles. They produce 1c x and 5.5in powerful images create fear or sympathy, but they tell half the story. If you don’t brush your teeth, you may lose them to tooth decay. Your child probably has a better chance of dying from a preventable disease than being injured by the vaccine. By raising taxes, creating new mandates on businesses and ultimately raising the costs of hiring, we create an environment where the economy has a difficult time growing and add-

ing jobs. No drilling offshore? Then higher prices at the pump. There are, in other words, consequences for action and inaction. But discussing a situation and pointing out the pros and cons of various actions confuses the narrative that interested parties oftentimes want to promote, which is based on the universal story of good versus evil. And such an approach creates division amongst us. We should appreciate the consequences and reject the notion that any legislation will “fix” all of our problems. It might solve one problem while creating a host of new ones. Our media should be facilitators of national discussion on such matters; instead, they too often seem to have their own agenda. Besides, in-depth analysis takes time and doesn’t sell as well as blaring headlines. However, our politicians, from our president on down, can and should tone down the rhetoric and realize that in approaching problems, people of good faith may simply have a difference of opinion. That does not by itself make them “good” or “bad” people. Saying you want to listen is easy; actually doing so requires respect and consideration for the other side. The alternative to compromise is that the forces tearing us apart become greater than the bonds holding us together, just as they did during the Civil War. We are not merely a sum of our parts. Just as a trunk cannot walk by itself, so we need one another to create a sustainable society. The sooner we can open our eyes and see this simple fact, the closer we come to appreciating the enormous but fragile animal before us. – Stephen Gordin

Smiths sign books during Tryon’s 125th birthday celebrations Sept. 4 As Tryon celebrates its 125th birthday, residents Mara and Ford Smith will be introducing two new books. On Saturday, September 4, the Smiths’ first booksigning will be held from 12 until 2 p.m. at The Book Shelf. This autograph party will be for the couple’s first novel, “Endangered,” a suspense that has been 20 years in the making. Their second booksigning will also include a winetasting. Held from 4 to 6 p.m. at La Bouteille, wines have been selected from the Smiths’ new “Winning Wines.” This 20102011 edition of “Winning Wines” has been updated and expanded to include 537 wines that cost $12 or less. While living in the Tryon area, Mara and Ford Smith have written two retirement books, “The Retirement Sourcebook” and “101 Secrets for a Great Retirement” available through McGraw-Hill, and an award-winning children’s book, “ABC All-American Riddles” for Peel Publications. Together the Smiths photo-

graphed for “America 24/7.” Eighteen of their images were published in “North Carolina 24/7.” With two other women photographers, Mara made a year-long record of the region. After a successful exhibition at the Upstairs Artspace, the Smiths printed more than 150 of her images in “Focus on the Foothills.” During Tryon’s birthday

party, The Book Shelf will feature other Tryon authors, too. The Book Shelf is located at 90 Pacolet Street, across from the post office. La Bouteille, the wine and beer boutique located at 10 N Trade Street, will present its own craft beer, BottleTree, in addition to hundreds of other beers and wines. – article submitted

Sunny View Elementary awarded Fresh Fruit & Vegetable grant Sunny View Elementary School has been selected to participate in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program for the 2010-2011 school year. One hundred six elementary schools across North Carolina were selected to participate in the program which provides funds to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. These snacks will be offered to students (at no charge) throughout the school day.

Fresh fruits and vegetables will be available to students at scheduled times as coordinated with the principal, teachers and child nutrition staff. The goal of the program is to make a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables easily accessible to students so they will be able to eat and enjoy them more often. The program also creates a healthier school environment. Eating five or more servings of fruits and vegetables daily can improve overall health and prevent the risk of cancer. Ac-

cording to health experts, too few students consume enough fruits and vegetables. These foods contribute to better health because they are low in calories and fat, but are high in vitamins, minerals and fiber. Sunny View staff says they hope to challenge parents to encourage their child or children to sample a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. By doing this, parents can help to instill healthy habits in their children at an early age. – article submitted
