For love of trains Historical rail group to meet in Landrum by John Clayton

Landrum City Councilman Billy Inman’s love affair with trains started when he was a little boy. The trains no longer rumble along the tracks that border Landrum, Tryon and Saluda, but Inman is bringing the Greenville Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society to the once-busy Landrum depot for a regular meeting and program at 7 tonight.

Saluda skate park closes Commissioners seek input on new use by Leah Justice

After being open for almost a decade, the skate park in Saluda is closed. The Saluda Board of Commissioners met Monday and announced that the insurance company closed the park on July 31. Mayor Fred Baisden and commissioners say they are seeking input from the community on

what other uses the park could have besides for skaters. Baisden said a family several years ago built the park and put in equipment, but no maintenance has been done on the park. He said the park doesn’t see a lot of local skaters anymore and would like to get ideas of what other uses the park could provide where the area could see more use. The city has appointed administra-

A benefit is being held tomorrow to help cover medical costs for Bradley Dittemore, who is 12 weeks old. The baby had heart surgery when he was about nine weeks old to correct a coarctation of his aorta, or what is described as a “kink.” Parents Stacy and Lee Dittemore attend Hickory Grove Church in Green Creek, where

condition resulted in him not getting enough blood flow to the bottom half of his body. Stacy Dittemore says they found out about Bradley’s problem on Aug. 9, when he was just seven weeks old. (Continued on page 4)

Another Pearson's Falls Rd. bridge to be replaced DOT to hold informational meeting Monday by Leah Justice

Work on one bridge on Pearson's Falls Road was just completed in July, and already the N.C. Department of Transportation is beginning the process of replacing another one. The DOT is proposing to replace Bridge No. 4 over a small branch of the Pacolet River on Pearson Falls Road (State Road 1102). The existing bridge was built in 1960 and needs to be replaced because of its advanced age and deteriorating condition, according to a press release issued by the DOT.

Area residents are invited to give their opinions and ask questions regarding DOT's plan to replace bridge No. 4 on Pearson Falls Road at a meeting Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Saluda Mountain Jamboree on Friendship Church Road in Saluda. The meeting will be a dropin workshop; DOT officials will be available to show maps of the proposed project and discuss the plans. Written comments are also encouraged. There will be no formal presentation regarding the project on Monday. Comments and information received from the public will be taken into consideration as work on this project progresses.

the city owned McCreery Park was started around 2000/2001 by Michael Belleme and his family, who created the Saluda B3 Club. The city approved allowing the skate park at McCreery, but the Saluda B3 Club was to cover additional costs in liability insurance and to meet other insurance requirements. The club was also charged with installing gates and locks and providing supervision initially.

“The group meets once a month, but this is the first time it’s ever been held up here,” said Inman, who said he has been trying to get the group to visit Landrum for a couple of years. Tonight’s meeting will also include ice cream and a presentation from a chapter member whose vacation included travel by rail in the American West. Inman hopes the attention from the group might help a restoration project for the depot, which is partially reliant on the approval of a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation. The four-phase restoration project is estimated to cost $48,000 over the first three phases.

lighting the area’s rail history. “We want to restore the (Landrum) building as close as possible to the way it was,” said Inman. “We’d like to see something like (the Spartanburg depot) here – a museum with memorabilia and things about the railroads.” The nearby Saluda grade is still the steepest railroad grade East of the Rocky Mountains, even though trains no longer chug through the mountains.The local rail lines between Saluda and Landrum are still owned by Norfolk Southern Railroad, but are no longer in use, so depots such as ones in Landrum and neighboring towns along the rail sit dormant. But Inman said he doesn’t want to see the railroads, which have played such a vital role in our history, go away. “The thing is, if the railroads like this one do disappear, they’re never coming back because there are too many issues with right of way and things like that,” he said. “So we need to preserve them.”

tives it took to battle trains up the famous Saluda grade. The "Saluda grade” was the steepest part of the line from Spartanburg to Asheville, and Tryon was an important station mid-way. The part of the track

from Melrose to Saluda – about three miles – was justifiably famous as the steepest stretch of main line railroad in the United States. To scale the flank of the Blue Ridge Mountains the line had to climb 600 vertical feet in elevation – and that required a grade of 4.7 percent (that is, climbing 4.7 feet in every

hundred). Most railroads try to avoid a grade even as steep as 1 percent, and the most spectacular narrow gauge railroads that scaled the Colorado Rockies did not exceed 4 percent. And the railroad was historical. Railroads were the new "hi-tech” idea in the 1830s, and pioneering railroad projects were


being hatched all over – mainly along the east coast, and often in fragmented short pieces between towns and cities. But bigger schemes were being hatched, too – major port cities like Philadelphia and Baltimore thought it promising to plan railroad lines (Continued on page 8)

from their port city to the booming inland country of Ohio and Illinois. And so did Charleston – whose entrepreneurial citizens incorporated the Louisville, Cincinnati and Charleston Railroad in 1836, to construct a line from their port city to Cincinnati, then the largest city west of Philadelphia and a major commercial and industrial center in the midwest. Progress was slow, but the railroad reached Columbia by 1842, and halted there until another line, the Spartanburg & Union Railroad, extended operation to Spartanburg by 1859. Finally, still another railroad, the Spartanburg & Asheville, was incorporated in 1868 to climb over the mountains to Asheville. Alas, progress was slow, and the railroad did not reach as far as Hendersonville until June first, 1879. The money had run out, and bankruptcy followed, but in due course the railroad was reorganized and new money found. Finally the important link to Asheville was constructed during 1885-1886. The Western North Carolina Railroad had already reached Asheville from the east and built a line north to Paint Rock. That connected to a line from Knoxville, and then to

Cincinnati – now, after 50 years, the dream of the Charleston merchants was realized: train service from their city to Cincinnati, Chicago and the developing midwest was a reality. The railroad was busy and important for over half a century – moving much freight and deluxe passenger trains. But operations were made difficult and expensive by the steep, tortuous line between Tryon and Asheville. Not only steep, but crooked – many curves were exceptionally tight, only 10 degrees – which would be unacceptable on a normal railroad. This was a problem for the large engines that were needed. Used a great deal were 2-10-2 “Santa Fe” type freight engines: translated, this means there was a single-axle lead truck (two wheels) in front, five fixed axles for the [big] drive wheels (five wheels on each side), and a single-axle trailing truck. That was too rigid a driving-frame for the sharp curves so the first set of drive wheels were specially designed as “floating” drivers that would adjust to the track All trains had extra engines added for the climb – “helper” engines usually added to the rear to push, while the regular (“road”) engines pulled from the front.

(continued from page 8)

The steepness of the grade greatly reduced the pulling-power of the locomotive. For instance, one of the “Santa Fe” freight engines could handle a 2,000-ton train on the stretch from Hendersonville into Asheville, but only 500 tons on the Saluda grade. Thus all trains had to have at least one extra locomotive added going north at Melrose, just six miles above Tryon. Freight trains negotiated the line through Saluda at from seven to eight miles an hour – but when diesels arrived, this was increased to 11 miles an hour, as diesels produced greater power at low speeds. Passenger trains were faster – somewhat! The 20 miles from Tryon to Hendersonville normally required between 55 minutes and an hour, going either way. The grade was so steep that the trains had to creep down under careful breaking control. If they got going too fast, there would be no stopping them short of having them decorate the landscape. And unfortunately, prior to 1900, they did “decorate the landscape” a number of times, costing a total of 27 trainmen their lives. Holding back 2,000 tons of freight cars trying to rush down the hill, with inadequate braking systems, occasionally resulted in runaways. The most dangerous place was a ten-degree curve near Melrose; trains had so many derailments there that it became known as “Slaughter Pen Cut.” This was clearly an unacceptable situation, so the Southern Railway took extreme measures to make the hill safe. Modern air brakes made a great difference, and they were used carefully. Trains stopped at the top of Saluda Mountain and all brake systems checked and activated – and some light brake pressure applied even as the locomotive started downhill. Then, two “safety tracks”

*** The Greenville Hospital System (GHS) has approved a $1.4 billion budget that includes 221 additional jobs. Most of the new positions will be physicians and physician support staff. The hospital system, the second-largest employer in Greenville County with about 10,000 employees, also approved a 3 percent rate increase for pharmacy, laboratory, radiology and operating room services. GHS says the increase is less than national and regional inflation rates for health care. GHS is moving forward with a partnership with the USC School of Medicine to expand the university’s medical program in Greenville. The partnership is expected to generate more physician jobs and attract new businesses to the area. *** South Carolina’s first public electric vehicle charging station was unveiled this week in Greenville.

To buy “Stories of the Green River Cove,” call Arledge’s daughter, Susan Howell, at 894-3724.

‘GRITS’ at Chapman Center They’re sweet as ice tea, southern as collard greens, and funny as all-get-out. They are GRITS – Girls Raised In The South – and they will be at the Chapman Cultural Center Friday and Saturday, September 24 and 25. “GRITS: The Musical” is a laugh-out-loud stage show that will take you through the heart of the South. The cast is four women, from their 20s to their 60s. Each woman is an individual storyteller and vocalist, and every story carries a song. It’s all about reminiscing, sittin’ on the front porch, travelin’ with your best friends, celebratin’ with down-home meals, and the “Dos and Don’ts” of being a proper Southern gal. Based on the best-selling book “Friends Are Forevah” by Deborah Ford, “GRITS: The Musical” was conceived by, produced by, directed by, written by, and performed by Erica McGee, a singer and actress out of Tennessee who got her start at Dollywood. Last season, “GRITS” played

to a sold-out house at the Newberry Opera House. Until now, that was their only gig in the Palmetto State, but it set the tone for their South Carolina experience. The girls are looking forward to coming to Spartanburg, McGee said. “We expect to have a fabulous time and look forward to meeting your belles and beaus! But the show is not just for girls or Southerners! There is something for everyone. If you like music and good story telling, you will love ‘GRITS: The Musical!’” In addition to the four southern girls, the show includes a full band and 16 original songs. “And we talk all about the South,” McGee said. “What could be better?” The Friday night show starts at 7 p.m. in the David Reid Theatre. The Saturday matinee starts at 2 p.m. For tickets, call 542-ARTS or go online at or visit Chapman’s ticket office Monday through Saturday, 12 to 6 p.m. – article submitted

Steps to HOPE celebrates 25th anniversary Polk County’s center for the prevention and treatment of domestic violence and sexual assault, Steps to HOPE, began in 1985 as a grass-roots movement to offer protection, assistance and empowerment to women who were being abused by their spouses – referred to as the ‘Battered Women’s Movement.” With very little history and even fewer resources to pull from, Steps to HOPE was charting new territory. In North Carolina, there were no laws making spousal abuse a crime until 1979 – only six years before Steps became chartered as a 501(c)(3) organization. Very quickly, it became apparent that Steps to HOPE’s work was more comprehensive than merely assisting victims by offering shelter and services; the organization needed to break the cycle of abuse by working toward preventing and eliminating

outdoorescapespools&spas - page 2

domestic violence and sexual assault altogether. Programs working with abusers, families and children arose from this need. Currently Steps to HOPE offers several programs designed to break the cycle of abuse including: Domestic Abuse Intervention (or Anger Management) Program; Parenting Education; Parenting Support; Family/Youth Mediation, and Teen Group. Already under way or soon to begin are programs within the county’s schools – Virtual College, Polk County High School and Polk County Middle School – bringing awareness to issues such as: Internet safety; cyberspace bullying; sexting; conflict resolution; alcohol and tobacco abuse; healthy relationship; and dating abuse.

Dr. Jackson Rainer, a former resident of Tryon who moved to Georgia last year, was quoted in the “Health” section of the New York Times Tuesday, August 17. In an essay, “Coping With Crisis Close to Someone Else’s Heart,” author Harriet Brown talks about how her family and friends dealt with her family in the midst of health crises with two of their children. “Often the closer one feels to the family in crisis, the harder it is to cope,” Brown writes. “‘Most people cannot tolerate the feeling of helplessness,’ said Jackson Rainer, a professor of psychology at Georgia Southern University who has studied grief and relationships. ‘And in the presence of another’s crisis, there’s always the sense of helplessness.’ “The more vulnerable people feel, the harder it may be to connect.

them afterward had children the same age as her son. They could picture all too vividly the same thing happening to their children; they felt too much empathy rather than not enough. “That was true for us, too, I realized. The friends who had disappeared had daughters exactly the same age as ours. “Dr. Rainer describes this kind of distancing as “stiff-arming” – creating as much space as possible from the possibility of trauma. It’s magical thinking in the service of denial: If bad things are happening to you and I stay away from you, then I’ll be safe. “Such people often wind up offering what Dr. Rainer calls pseudo-care, asking vaguely if there’s anything they can do but never following up. Or they might say they’re praying for the family in crisis, a response he dismisses as ineffectual at best. “A more compassionate response,” he said, “is ‘I am praying for myself to have the courage to help you.’” “True empathy inspires what sociologists call instrumental aid. ‘There are any number of tasks to be done, and they’re as personal as your thumbprint,’ Dr. Rainer said. If you really want to help a family in crisis, offer to do something specific: drive the carpool, weed the garden, bring a meal, do the laundry, go for a walk.” – article submitted

N.C. fire marshal Goodwin offers fire safety tips to college students September Campus Fire Safety Month September has been proclaimed Campus Fire Safety Month in North Carolina, and insurance commissioner and state fire marshal Wayne Goodwin is reminding all college and university communities to incorporate fire safety into everyday living. Unfortunately, North Carolina has suffered a number of fire tragedies involving college students. Many of these deaths could have been prevented. “The importance of fire safety is a lesson we don’t want anyone to learn the hard way,” said Goodwin. “Fire service professionals and students need to work together to make sure everyone has the opportunity to pursue an education in a safe environment.” Common factors in fatal campus-related fires nationwide include: • Lack of automatic fire sprinkler systems • Missing or disabled smoke alarms • Careless disposal of smoking materials • Alcohol consumption Students should: • Make sure smoke alarms are properly installed and working. Never tamper with or disable them. • Follow your school’s rules for using candles, electronics and cooking equipment. • Learn your building’s escape routes and never ignore an alarm. • In off-campus housing, make a home fire escape plan with two exits from each room. The office of the state marshal is working to improve fire safety on campuses with the help of a $105,000 federal grant. Fire safety experts are holding regional “train-the-trainer” workshops to provide campus leaders and fire officials with resources to reach out to students.

OSFM is also providing free smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to fire departments so that they can team with students to install them in offcampus neighborhoods. OSFM has created a toolkit to help student leaders share the message of fire safety in on-campus housing. Nine schools and fire departments have been awarded sub-grants to hold campus fire prevention events during September. “This month is a good time to teach young adults the fire safety habits that they will carry with them the rest of their lives,” Goodwin added. – article submitted

GMFD encourages citizens to prepare for emergencies September is National Preparedness Month Glassy Mountain Fire Department has joined with the Ready Campaign, Citizen Corps and the Advertising Council to create awareness for National Preparedness Month (NPM) to encourage individuals, families, business and communities to work together to take simple action steps to prepare for emergencies. September 2010 is the seventh annual NPM. “According to Federal Emergency Management Adminis-

tration (FEMA), Craig Fugate, administrator, it is essential that all Americans come together to plan and prepare for a disaster,” said Bryan G. Riebe, chief of Glassy Mountain Fire Department. “By taking concrete steps now, we can ensure a better response later. “As we know all too well, disasters – natural or man-made – can happen any time, any place,” Riebe added. “For this reason, it is incumbent for all of us to take the necessary steps to be prepared. This includes having food, water and other necessary supplies in sufficient

quantity to last for at least three days; having an emergency escape plan for the whole family with a designated meeting place for all; and get informed. “The Ready Campaign wants all Americans to know about the important differences among potential emergencies that will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take.

McMinn McCredie, Inman to present programs at Lanier Library The Lanier Library has another busy week in its fall schedule beginning at 12 p.m. on Tuesday, September 21 with a performance by storyteller and musician Marilyn McMinn McCredie. On Thursday, September 23, author and playwright Robert Inman will discuss his adaptation of the play “Welcome to Mitford” at 2 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, September 24 and 25 the library is holding its fall book sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days (there is a members only preview on Thursday). All the programs are free and everyone is welcome. Folklorist Marilyn McMinn McCredie performs as a story teller and ballad singer throughout the southern Appalachians and in elder hostels in other areas of the country. She is a native of Henderson County from a family who held land there since the land grant

days. She grew up steeped in the culture, traditions and folk ways of the area and uses this experience as a basis for her stories and songs. Her program is part of the Library’s Brown Bag Lunch series and begins at 12 p.m. on Tuesday, September 21. Following the publication of his book “Coming Home” in 2000, Robert Inman’s first play, “Crossroads,” was received to wide acclaim in 2003 and since then he has written “The Drama Club,” “A High Country Christmas” and “Welcome to Mitford,” a dramatic adaptation of the Mitford novels by Jan Karon. In conjunction with the Tryon Little Theater, Inman will discuss his play at 2 p.m. at the Lanier Library, prior to the first performance of the play at the TLT Theater Workshop the same evening. Inman began his career as a journalist as a “printer’s devil” at

Hundreds of newly donated books will be available at the Lanier Library’s fall book sale. The sale will take place at the library on Friday and Saturday, September 24 and 25 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Library members may preview the sale on Thursday, September 23. – article submitted

Big doings... As always, I have much to say, but will be at 5 p.m. on November 6, which first I would like to remind you about coincidentally is the 20th Anniversary the Po’Kitties All-Pet Photo Contest, of the Foothills Humane Society Shelbecause the deadline for photo entries ter! There will be an open-house at is fast approaching. Send a picture of the shelter that Saturday from 10-2, your dog, cat, horse, gerbil, snake, with lots of fun for the whole family. I fish, bird, or what-have-you along will be attending (they had to promise with an Official Entry Form and $5.00 that I would be able to participate in to Po’Kitties, P.O. Box 39, Tryon, NC the FOOD part) and look forward to 28782, and make sure it is postmarked this great event. Of course, later that by September 30. All proceeds go to afternoon, I would LIKE to attend the benefit the Po’Kitties program, which big celebration at the Tryon Fine Arts even I think is one of the best pro- Center.

Did you am a food-monger. know that in 2010, This year, though, the shelter’s live I would love to go to the Tryon Fine Arts Center to look at release rate is a whopping 98%? Not the photos of the animals and have just only is this a phenomenal number for our area, it is right up at the top of a bite or two of the fabulous food. The party (ahem) awards ceremony the numbers for shelters across the


country! It means that the Board, the staff, and the volunteers are working unbelievably hard and saving the lives of 98% of the animals that come in. I stand in awe, and extend my deepest gratitude to all involved in this extraordinary success story. I got a woofing (literally) ovation at Polk County High School this week. When I was introduced, it was all I could do to maintain my cool, calm, collected self in the face of the entire student body woofing and cheering for me. However, when I am “On The Job,” I have to be professional. Unless, of course, there is food involved. I can make an exception for food. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the faculty and students, as well as the other presenters. I am a big fan of the AFS program, you know. And I am an honorary member of the Humane Society Club. Unfortunately, no food was served at the program. Other than that, it was awesome. I was also pleased (although not

surprised) to be given a brand-new collar that says, “Best Ever Dog.” Ahem. It’s about time my humans realized that I am head and tails above the rest! Seriously, the collar is quite appropriate, and, I’m told, looks handsome on me. But then, what doesn’t? Again, let me encourage you to send in photos of your pet for the Po’Kitties All-Pet Photo Contest. The photos are mounted and displayed on the walls of the Tryon Fine Arts Center, and they are an incredible sight. It is for a terrific cause, the Po’Kitties program, which saves the lives of the free-roaming cats in OUR community. I will remind you again about the gala celebration and Awards Ceremony before November 6. Perhaps this year, I will be allowed to attend. I promise not to beg everyone for food. Woof!

It’s Time St. Paul spoke to the people of Athens (Acts 17:29-31), even so God speaks to all: “Being then God's offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man. The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent, because He has fixed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by a Man whom He has appointed; and of this He has given assurance to all by raising Him from the dead.” The Creator has “fixed a day.” Knowing that, how can we not count today the day to repent? Jesus Christ has died for you and is the risen One. Trust in Him for the forgiveness of all your sins. Abraham saw His day and believed, and Abraham’s faith in the Son of God was counted as righteousness. God will judge the world by the righteousness of faith in His Son. Whoever believes in Him will not perish but shall have eternal life. Christians, who believe that the Bible is God’s holy Word—in its entirety—have a precious treasure to be shared with all other people. From these Holy Scriptures comes, not only the proper understanding of and view toward mankind, but also the answer to how one is saved, in order that we might be certain of our salvation. Mankind is in desperate need when it comes to things spiritual. For we are “by nature children of wrath, just like the rest [of mankind]” (Ephesians 2:3). Paul says that we were “dead in trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1). This sounds pretty desperate, but it gets worse. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 2:14, “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” Ever since the Fall, man’s reason cannot teach correctly and his will cannot act rightly. As God puts it in Genesis 6:5, “Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” There is no squirming free from that or from what David later would say about himself in Psalm 51:5,

“Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity and my mother conceived me with sin.” How then can anyone be saved? How can anyone believe? What will work the change in sinful man’s heart? “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christ” (Rom. 10:17). The Word of God’s Gospel both opens our ears to hear and works faith in our hearts. Oh, the wonder of that message: “Rich in mercy, out of the great love with which He loved us, even while dead in our trespasses, God made us alive together with Christ” (Eph. 2). God worked out our salvation outside of us, in the Person of His Son Jesus Christ, in order that Jesus might complete it, that you and I might receive it freely. To Jesus be all the glory! There is nothing within you on which to rely, but only on Jesus, who lived and died and rose again for you. So God tears you away from yourself and places your hope on that which is outside you: the promised forgiveness won for you by Jesus and bestowed on you freely by grace alone through faith alone. The promise and truth of God cannot deceive, and thus you have certainty of your salvation—courage to live and courage to die—knowing you will live forever. Remember that what is real is that God the Creator makes things unceasingly new for you. Rejoice in the name of your Savior Jesus Christ the Righteous. Next week: How does God make you new and save you? Could it be Baptism?

exists, rely on friends or family, or heaven forbid, walk. Having no money also means that you may have to opt for a low rent apartment, or a relocation to a less desirable area to live, perhaps in a less safe part of town. The idea of vacations is over, and even taking part in celebrating some holidays may no longer be feasible. The second most common fear of aging has to do with fear of how our grown children may treat us. Remember the joke, be kind to your children, they’re the ones who will be choosing your nursing home – well it’s true. It’s also true that too many adult children don’t visit their parents, and you’d be amazed how many adult children cheat their own parents out of their money and

Do you remember the bigeared grinning character that used to be on the front of Mad Magazine – no not Barack Obama – it was Alfred E. Neumann, the original “What Me Worry” kid. With 78-million baby boomers rapidly approaching early senior-hood, it seems that Alfred E. Neumann’s mantra has become popular with too many boomers who also think that problems of aging will happen to others, so they too adopt the philosophy of “What Me Worry?” That may seem like a great, even positive attitude toward aging, but it ignores the realities of some of the many challenges and problems that aging can bring about. Like the 7-deadly sins, so too are there 7-common concerns regarding aging, that if not addressed prior to advanced

leave them destitute. Some adult children abuse their parents emotionally through verbal assaults, while others actually do bodily harm through physical beatings. Both forms of abuse steal a senior’s will to live. Third among the concerns of aging is fear of poor health. Some diseases are inherent due to family history and genetics, others tend to be more prevalent as we age – loss of hearing and sight for instance. But the biggest underlying cause for many of these illnesses has to do with a lifetime of poor nutritional habits, an unhealthy diet and the failure to exercise. A lot of our aging population has a great

deal to fear about growing older just from those two lifestyle choices. Loss of spouses and friends is the number four concern of aging, while having too much free time on our hands and nothing to do, combined with a low self image and not feeling wanted or needed is the fifth concern about aging. Having too much time on our hands leads to the sixth most common fear of aging – loneliness. If we don’t find ways to fill the vacuum of loneliness, the spiral of depression is more likely, and our ability to deal with our emotions can be overwhelmed leading to

breakdowns in our mental and physical health. The last of the major concerns has to do with losing yourself due to cognitive illness such as dementia, and loss of our mental functions and memories Senior caused by AlLifeStyles zheimer’s disease. Loss of Ron Kauffman self punishes both the aging person and his or her family, as they become fading memories and strangers in a shadowy life of confusion.

Sheriff Donald Hill, patrol sergeant Clay Price, and administrative assistant Kim Pack prepared waffles with all the kids’ favorite toppings and shared lunchtime with them (above). Sheriff Hill and Sergeant Price passed out stickers and talked with the kids about their careers in law enforcement. Below, Johnathan Mills shows off his stickers with Megan Fleming. The summer program did various activities each day – from swimming, special visitors, a therapy dog visit to a lunchtime walk to Kyoto’s in Tryon. The summer program was under the direction of Norma Hill and was assisted by Megan Fleming of Mars Hill College and Rebekah Hyder of PCHS. (photos submitted)

FENCE Armchair Traveler takes a journey to local waterfalls Sept. 26 Join Cynthia Terwilliger as she takes a tour of several local waterfalls on Sunday, September 26 at 4 p.m. as part of the FENCE Armchair Traveler series. Terwilliger invites you to “Come away a while, past the concrete and the cars, out beyond the boundaries of everyday life. Pause to look beyond the confines of time, into the face of eternity and find yourself – a part of the whole.” Cynthia Terwilliger has a spe-

cial way of looking at the world. Her photographs remind us that we, too, are part of nature, that life is precious and orderly, and that our days are regulated by a universal power. Terwilliger has a B.S. in education from Northern Illinois University and a master’s in library and information studies from the University of Michigan. She spent several years teaching social studies and English, and she incorporated her photography

in her lessons. She has traveled extensively throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico and Micronesia. She has lived in Illinois, the Marshall Islands, California, Florida, Michigan and North Carolina. Terwilliger is a self-taught photographer. She has an eye for composition and a feeling for the beauty and symmetry in nature. She has been photographing in 35mm format since 1969 and digital format since 2005.

Terwilliger resides in Tryon and spends a great deal of time traversing and photographing the environs of the Blue Ridge Mountains. She is a South Carolina Master Naturalist. One of her passions is capturing the power and beauty of Appalachian waterfalls. The FENCE Armchair Traveler series is offered free of charge with the support of the Kirby Endowment Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation. – article submitted

Letter to the Editor

Celebrated everything that makes Tryon what it is To the Editor: What a wonderful Labor Day Weekend celebration we had here in Tryon for our 125th Birthday party. The weather was the icing on the cake. The reason this event was so successful was because almost every organization in town, and many of the businesses, wholeheartedly jumped on the bandwagon to do their part in showing off Tryon. We all know what wonderful treasures we possess in this little town, but it is exhilarating to have so many of those gifts on display all at once. There truly was something for

Letter to the Editor

Our county’s economic future To the Editor: Just as the scar on Chocolate Drop Mountain gives me a visual reminder of why we had to pull together to protect our beautiful county, the sight I saw the other night at the fundraiser for the Gibson Park pool reminded me of why we must bring people together to address our county’s current economic situation. In the early evening of what

everyone and all the locations and events had great participation. The historic Tryon Country Club started us off with a golf tournament in which 65 people participated. The Summer Tracks Concert with The Firecracker Jazz Band on Friday night was fabulous. The bagpiper opening the day on Saturday was followed by a really fun parade representing many local groups and our equestrian heritage. Our “longtimers,” Holland Brady, Jim Cowan and Ada Preston, served as parade marshals. From the cemetery tours conducted by Mayor Peoples to the stained glass tours at Holy Cross conducted by Ambrose Mills, there was activity everywhere. Private, historic homes were opened thanks to the generosity of the owners. The Tryon Fine Arts Center, Tryon Arts and Crafts, Tryon Little Theater,

TDDA put together a fantastic line up of local musical talents from all all varieties of musical styles. The town manager, along with the police and fire departments, cooked food, and every town councilman pitched in for everything from putting up tents to arranging shuttle vans. The town staff all did a great job. Local churches and White Oak Retirement Village participated as well. The quilt show and the governor’s tea were two events that showed off the hospitality which is such a part of Tryon life. Especially important to me was the participation evident in the African-American Tryon

exhibit, the Tryon Dolls and the historic Tryon exhibits. A most significant part of our local history is rooted in the Eastside of Tryon which all too often is overlooked; it was heartwarming to have that important facet of our life highlighted. What has struck me in particular about our birthday party is what success we can have when we are all actively engaged in seeking a positive outcome. So many times we all wish for a common goal while we get in each other’s way by serving our own agenda first. This did not happen on Labor Day weekend. Instead we all found wonderful ways to help celebrate everything that makes Tryon what it is. Congratulations to all who helped and to all who enjoyed. Let’s party on. – Wanda K.

Dixie delight?


Bye week  coming at  good time  for PCHS

Cardinals look to end struggles against Hornets

by John Clayton

by John Clayton

an uncharacteristic offensive drought has left Landrum head coach russell Mahaffey looking for a cure to the doldrums that have plagued his offense in two straight losses. He’s hoping Dixie will provide it when the 1-2 Hornets visit LHs stadium at 7:30 tonight. “after the last two weeks with the offensive output we’ve had – or the lack thereof – we’ve worked very hard this week,” Mahaffey said. “We’ve had two great days of practice. . . . If that translates to Friday night, we ought to be able to move the ball pretty well.” the Cardinals (1-2) have been outscored 70-12 in losses at Chesnee (41-0) and at polk County (29-12). their second touchdown against polk County was a defensive fumble return for a score. While the Cardinals’ offensive production, particularly on the scoreboard, has been disappointing, Mahaffey has not hit the panic button. the LHs spread offense will operate as it has this season behind triggerman Brandon Cannon at quarterback. “It’s business as usual,” Mahaffey said. “You have to break the other team down and take advantage of what you can get.” “We’ve played a great football team in Chesnee … and a great football team in polk County,” Mahaffey said. “they’re two impressive football teams. part

of our problems have been with us and what we’ve done, but part of it had to do with who we were playing. “Hopefully, now that we’re getting into (Class a) play, we’ll be able to straighten some of those things out and get where we need to be.” Dixie has had similar problems, having been outscored 75-27 in its two losses. pal-

metto rolled up 310 rushing yards against the Hornets in the first half of a 34-0 victory, a statistic that bodes well for LHs running back Cole McDowell, who has rushed for 271 yards on 43 carries for a 6.8-yard average this season. But LHs must also stop Dixie running back ty Hawthorne, who has amassed 410 rushing yards this season, including 200 yards in Dixie’s lone victory over southside Christian. “He’s a good running back – he ran the ball last week (in a loss to Crescent),” said Mahaffey. “But with what we’ve done defensively, I’m pretty confident with us stopping the run.” But both Chesnee and polk County burned the LHs secondary with deep scoring passes. three of polk County’s scores came on passes of 19, 31 and 54 yards. “We’re having trouble stopping the deep ball, so we’re going to have to continue to work on that very hard,” Mahaffey said.

after a 4-0 start to the season, a No. 5-ranking in Class 2a and mounting injuries, “idle” started to look pretty good on the polk County High football schedule. the Wolverines have an open date on their schedule this week following a 2912 victory over cross-state rival Landrum. “We give the guys Monday off and then I tell them OLLIS if they give me three good days of practice, we’ll take Friday off, too,” said pCHs head coach Bruce ollis. “I dangle that carrot out there for them, but it’s good for all of us. “the players need it, and, honestly, it’s good for the coaches, too.” Four pCHs players missed this past week’s game against Landrum, so having a week off will also help get those players healthy for a run at a Western Highlands Conference 2a championship and a potential stateplayoff run. LB/FB Juan Hicks, LB Jaylon twitty, oL/DL Jacob painter and te/De Chandler Miller missed the Landrum game. Hicks is expected to miss at least one more week with an injured shoulder, but the others could return next week at Madison. “We’re a little nicked up in spots,” said ollis. “so, yeah, this week off is coming at a good time for us.”

Art requested for St. Luke’s In case you have not had the chance to see, St. Luke’s Hospital is fortunate to house artwork from Polk County. Coordinated by the Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS), the revolving exhibit changes approximately every three months. What once was a small exhibit has more than tripled to 95 pieces representing 32 local artists. The art exhibit has expanded from covering only the St. Luke’s back hall to now including the inpatient hallway leading to the nurse’s station as well as the Hyperbaric and Wound Care Center lobby. This requires many additional works of art so TPS has extended an invitation to exhibit to other artists in the community. Anyone interested in displaying an oil painting, a watercolor, or a sculpture that can hang on a wall, call Jean Wright with TPS at 828859-8322 or St. Luke’s Hospital PR at 828-894-2408. To be included in the exhibit,

TPS will need the artwork information (title, artist) by Sunday, September 26, and the artwork will need to be delivered to the classroom at St. Luke’s Hospital on Monday, September 27 and Tuesday, September 28. TPS has made a bit of progress formalizing the “rules” for this exhibit: • Open to members and nonmembers of Tryon Painters and Sculptors. • Because the exhibit is in a public space, nudes are not appropriate. • Participants must sign a St. Luke’s Hospital liability waiver. • Contact information for the artist is provided (if desired) with the tag for each piece. The artist is responsible for any sale of art. A piece may be removed from the exhibit when it is sold, but we ask that you advise the coordinator so we can find a replacement. “We’re extremely pleased to

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. family foundations

Q. How does a family foundation work and how much money do I need to set one up? A. A "family foundation" is what the tax law refers to as a "private foundation". the usual planning technique is to have a Crt pay its funds into a family foundation created in the trust maker's will or trust. the children of the trust maker are usually on the foundation board of trustees, and their job is to decide which charities are to receive the income donations each year in accordance with the instructions left by the trust maker. What the size of your estate has to be in order to justify this planning is purely subjective, but a general standard of tax specialists is a minimum of one million dollars. People who do this type of planning most often site their reason for doing so a desire to give their children control of wealth rather than wealth outright so they can live lives of significance in addition to affluence.
