Storm knocks out power to 1,300 Polk residents by Leah Justice

Tree and power crews were busy yesterday morning as a heavy storm with rain and hail knocked down many trees and cut off power to 1,302 Polk County residents Monday night. The area has received 3.36 inches of rain since Saturday, according to data collected by the Town of Tryon. Most of the damage was done in the Tryon and Columbus areas. The Pacolet Valley area in Tryon was especially hard hit, with trees down along Harmon Field Road and U.S. 176.

Repairs were also being done yesterday morning to a traffic light at the U.S. 176 and Hwy. 108 intersection in downtown Tryon. The storm began Monday evening and strengthened with high winds and heavy rain around 9 p.m. Most of the power outages occurred around 9:30 p.m. Monday. Power was restored for many residents by 1 a.m. Tuesday, but some areas still had no power as of yesterday morning. The rain was much needed in Polk County as Polk is one of many Western North Carolina counties that have remained abnormally dry recently. and it was constructed in 1916.

hill referred to by local athletes as the “Grunt” hill. The run follows the lake in a counter-clockwise direction on West Lakeshore Drive, winding around five miles of continuous lake road. This is an 8k USATF (4.97 miles) certified course with varied terrain. Scenic views of the lake and mountains are visible throughout much of the race. Water/aid stations will be set up near the following locations: Caledonia Road (shortly before mile 1), Dug Hill Road (shortly before mile 2), and Lennox Road (before mile 4), as well as at the finish.


The Ouch course The Ache race and The Ouch both will start together on Butter Street. They will both come down the hill together and go onto Lake Shore Drive. The Ouch participants will then split from The Ache racers by staying straight on East Lakeshore Drive and heading towards the Tea House. Participants will enjoy a very flat first half mile all the way to the Tea House, where they will be rewarded with beautiful views. After a short gradual hill Ouch participants will take a left on Cut Through Rd. and continue to

climb by taking a left on Clark Road followed by a quick right on Butter Street again before starting the descent by taking a left on Lanier Drive. The course hits a short steep downhill before taking a left on Lake Shore Drive and heading up the final hill. Participants finish by taking a right onto the dam and across the finish line. This course is considered a "fun run" and is NOT USATF-certified. Tea House brunch In addition to running or walking around the lake, you can dine on the historic lakeside Tea House Restaurant. Brunch tickets include a donation to the St. Luke's Hospital Foundation). All tickets must be purchased in advance. Please call the foundation office for tickets: (828) 894-2693. Runners/walkers are welcome to enjoy the brunch after they make their way around the lake; however, tickets must be purchased in advance.

Letter to the Editor

Vote for the person, not the affiliation

Letter to the Editor

Don’t label her To the Editor: The Tryon Little Theater deserves kudos for their production of Welcome to Mitford. The direction was extremely good. The sets were wonderfully designed and constructed. The lighting and sound very well done. The cast was excellent. Unfortunately one piece of Mr. Inman’s dialogue almost ruined my whole experience. While I do not condone censorship, I do value sensitivity to others and their misfortunes. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist. I was offended by Robert Inman’s choice to overtly state that one of his characters is “a schizophrenic” and go on to mock what is a serious and heartbreaking illness. Mr. Inman, please say she is eccentric, say she has whimsical, fanciful or dramatic tendencies, but don’t label her with a serious mental illness. It is an insult to all who suffer from the disease and hurtful to those who care about them. – Katharine V. R. Smith, Ph.D

To the Editor: In his most recent letter, Warren Watson wants to make it look like he’s seeking nonpartisan elections for county commissioners. What he’s really doing is just trolling for votes and promoting the most ugly kind of partisanship. First, he says the elections should be nonpartisan. But then he says, choose for whom you’ll vote based solely upon party affiliation. He says to cast your votes so that no more than two people from any party are elected. He never says to evaluate the individual candidates and choose the ones who will best lead Polk County. Look only at the parties and mix it up, he advises. In truth, he’s saying you should vote against a good, qualified person just because someone of the same party is already in office. That’s totally partisan, not nonpartisan. We have three excellent candidates running for Polk County Commissioner this year: Ray Gasperson, Margaret Johnson and Benny Smith. Please vote for these individuals because they will work cooperatively with Cindy Walker and me, continuing to take Polk County toward a good, bright future. Ray Gasperson, Margaret Johnson and Benny Smith are committed to preserving Polk County’s rural beauty and natural resources. They’re committed to preserving Polk’s farms. They’re committed to bringing good paying jobs to Polk County. They’re committed to good fiscal management and keeping taxes low. And they have the energy, experience and integrity to do it, out in the open and in full view of the public. – Renée McDermott

the emory & Henry men’s soccer team recently opened up its season not only on the playing field, but also in the community by helping clear a path for a future recreation trail. the team helped carve out a section of the 22-mile Clinch Mountain trail near Hidden Valley Lake in Washington County, Va. the players and coaches spent several hours working in the hot sun, but at of the end the day they say the results were worth it. “At the end of the trail there was a huge overlook where it seemed like we could see forever,” E&H player and Polk County High School 2009 graduate Heath Culbreth said. “It was beautiful.” The 20-plus coaches and players helped improve the drainage

of the trail by removing rocks and trimming the edges. Coach Travis Fravel said the experience allowed the players to get to know each other while serving a greater goal. “Emory & Henry College is a place where service to our community is important,” Fravel said. “We wanted to show the region that our team does more than just play soccer.” Culbreth is one of three players currently on e&H roster from PCHS along with brother Jarrett Culbreth (’07) and Josh Trejo (’08). “Very few individuals get to continue their athletic career past high school and even fewer get to share it with their brother, so my last two years on the college soccer field has been tremendous,” Jarrett Culbreth said.

Regular car maintenance saves gas, repairs • Get a "Tune-Up"--A tuneup used to mean replacing spark plugs and tuning a car engine's ignition timing, but modern automobiles have self-correcting, computer-controlled ignitions, so tuning is very rarely required. These days, the term "tune-up" usually refers to multiple component checks-like a physical for your car. Have a technician check the following systems: battery, charging and starting systems, engine mechanicals, powertrain controls (including onboard diagnostics check), and the fuel, ignition and emissions systems. Proper maintenance of these systems can help maximize your vehicle's performance and fuel economy while minimizing emissions. Your vehicle owner's guide has recommendations for when to get a tune-up. 258390-101 — NAPSI

Hiking a forest trail. (photo submitted)

Thompson brings bird program to Walnut Creek Preserve Oct. 1 Simon Thompson, a well known ornithologist who owns and operates his own bird watching and natural history tour company, Ventures, Inc., will present a bird watching program and hike at the Anne Elizabeth Suratt Nature Center at Walnut Creek Preserve on Friday, October 1, at 9 a.m. (rain or shine). The public is invited and there is no charge for attending the program. The program will include a presentation by Thompson in the nature center focusing on how to attract birds to your backyard and how to identify the area’s most common species of birds. The presentation will be immediately followed by a hike on the trails in Walnut Creek Preserve. Those attending the program should dress for an outdoor hike, including sturdy walking shoes. The hike will include some moderate hill walking. Those who want to attend the birding presentation but

not stay for the hike may do so. Thompson has lived in Malta, Africa and Lebanon, where his interest in birds began. He has been the ornithologist at FENCE until he started his company, Ventures. He is a member of the American Birding Association and the Carolina Bird Club, and plans many bird watching talks and programs throughout western North Carolina. He is also the ornithologist at Chimney Rock Park. To reach the nature center from Columbus, take Highway 108 east to Highway 9, then north on Highway 9 for 5 miles to McGuinn Road and turn right. Go 1 mile to Big Level Road at dead end and turn left. Go 2/10ths of one mile to Aden Green Road on the right opposite Found Feather Farm. The nature center driveway is on the left, 3/10th of one mile down Aden Green Road. For more information, call 828-429-0142. – article submitted

Ours The conclusion of one cycle “It is idle to think that things in this life will last for ever in one state. On the contrary, everything seems to go in cycles, or rather round-about. Summer follows on spring, autumn on summer, winter on autumn, and spring on winter, and so time revolves in this continuous wheel. Only human life speeds to its end faster than the wind, without hope of renewal, except in that other life which has no bounds to limit it.” Cervantes, from Don Quixote, Chapter LIII. Of the troubled conclusion of Sancho Panza’s Government. Before stepping into the next round-about of my life, I want to take a few drops more of ink to thank all those people who have befriended us, come to our aid, stayed true through politics and storms, all the while forgiving our weaknesses, frailties and faults. There is nothing like a small town for human kindness. In a small town, friendships follow spiderweb links and unseen lanes. Even mild acquaintances find cracks in that vanity which can so easily preserve our mutual loneliness in a busier place. Not here, praise be to god. Of course, we have long since placed in our personal pantheon of saints those contributors, columnists, letter writers, civic activists, public servants and tipsters who have aided us in producing the World’s Smallest Daily five days a week. Obama is Yours president 25 percent a Christian who attended a large Chrisof Americans tian church in Chicago, and he willing to believe has never been seen entering gross untruths a mosque to worship. equally To the editor: I heard a frightening statistic on a news show last Sunday. Deepak Chopra stated that “25 percent of americans think president Obama is a Muslim.” It is a well documented fact that

inaccurate is the idea that he is a “non-citizen” to be sworn in as president. What is terrifying is that 25 percent of americans are willing to believe untruths. This results in “emotionalism” per Deepak

The TDB, if each key stroke is counted, one can say without exaggeration involves 100,000 details every week. That’s just producing the daily paper, not counting the challenges of composing, printing, delivering, billing and technology. Then, there are unending complexities and subtleties which must be handled to address the human relations issues raised daily by 10,000 readers, and 1,000 advertisers. Less than a dozen full timers handle all this, while also keeping an eye on our life together as elected and appointed officials serving three counties and four towns carry on our public business. For managing those details every day, so incredibly well, we are indebted to all those who have worked, and work still, for the Bulletin, particularly its longtime stalwarts: Wanda Cash, Mike edwards, Barbara Tilly, pam McNeil, Tony elder, Chris Dailey, Leah Justice and Judy Lanier. The Bulletin, a unique treasure, unlike any other newspaper anywhere, is a gift to this community from the Vining family. It has been our privilege to keep its traditions alive, a challenge which largely required deftly stepping aside to allow the TDB’s organic quirkiness to thrive unhindered. The Tryon Daily Bulletin will be even stronger with Boone Newspapers Inc., fine publishers of small market newspapers. The principles, Todd Carpenter and Tim prince, understand the TDB, this community and this industry at this time. We wish them all success in this important work. — JB Chopra. emotionalism and ac- show hosts are significantly imceptance of untruths contributed pacting the course of our nation to the rise of Hitler in the years at this time.
