HouseMaster home inspection business is now open in Polk County. Robert Talbert of Tryon, who has extensive experience in construction, says he was inspired to open a HouseMaster franchise after his daughter had a negative experience with home inspectors when buying her first home. He saw a definite need in the marketplace and answered the growing demand for home inspection services by opening HouseMaster. Located in Tryon, the new franchise will serve The Foothills of North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina, markets Talbert says have a definite need for home inspection services. “It’s necessary for residents to have access to qualified home

From interior systems such as plumbing and electrical to exterior components like the roof and siding, HouseMaster’s guaranteed home inspections include the evaluation of all visible and accessible elements of the home. HouseMaster also conducts new construction, commercial property and foreclosure inspections, among other services.

Letter to the Editor

Party jumping is in To the Editor: In the footsteps of Joe Lieberman, we’ve had local candidates jump from their party in an attempt to survive in a tough time for politicians. Warren Watson says he wants it to be very clear that the reason he left the Democratic Party was what he said in his letter of 3-1-2010 and not what anyone else has stated. Warren said: “Once political candidates become “elected officials,” it is imperative that they take on a different role. To be effective, I believe that elected officials must put aside political affiliations in order to best represent the interests of all citizens.” I guess this explains the ineffective leadership of every President since George Washington. If only we’d elected Presidents who were unaffiliated we might have become a great country. Warren’s

argument sounds reasonable until you realize that the only politicians who leave their party are those in trouble and trying to survive. One disadvantage of being an unaffiliated “elected official” is that you soon become an “unaffiliated candidate.” With no organization doing fund raising you are forced to go after big donations. I can’t wait to see who is donating, it should be interesting. Of course after watching these two for four years, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for an honest accounting of where their money has come from. They’ve already shown that they don’t play by the rules, will say anything and remember only what they want. This year, in our local Democratic Party our big fundraiser is a pancake breakfast we are holding the 3rd Saturday of each month. This way we have hundreds of $5.00 donations financing our candidates. We feel small donations keep candidates independent. We recruit them, we

M oore Owens Pack

support them but we don’t tell them how to do their jobs, that is up to them. Who will represent everyone equally and who will cater to a few? The candidates funded by a few large donors, or those funded by hundreds of small donations? The party candidates know that their party will still be there in four years. The unaffiliated will be looking for their next large donor. Now I’d like to respond to Mr. Melton. Why did I bring up the “Big Snakes” story now? Because you are running for reelection now and I want people to know who you are. Why didn’t I identify my “supporters” who called about Park St? Because they asked me not to put their names in the paper as they run a business. However Tommy, you know who they are. They came to me, because they had asked you “why the county paid $95,000 for a property that was offered for $75,000” and you

told them you would get back to them. They are still waiting. They are Republicans and asked you at a Tea Party rally, ring any bells? On back room deals, the only reason the closed session minutes were released was because I asked for them to be released. I didn’t miss that article, I requested it! The NC statutes define what can be done in closed sessions; the minutes confirm that the statutes were not followed. What is wrong with politics in our country is that many politicians get power happy, never admit when they are wrong and just lie about everything. The voters are guilty of not paying attention and then being fooled by the lies. We can’t cure the guilty politicians, they are never going to change, but we can be better informed voters. Don’t be fooled in November, vote for ethical, honest politicians only. That is what I’m going to do. – Jerry Hardvall

Jackson, Underwood to discuss memoirs and more at PCPL Jim Jackson and Gloria Underwood grew up about 15 miles apart, he in Tryon, she in Campobello. They attended grammar school in their respective communities. They went to rival colleges in South Carolina; he attended the Citadel for two years; she graduated from Furman University. They never met. Jackson was working in his family’s business, Cloth of Gold, attending Oberlin Seminary, and hitch-hiking across America. Underwood was teaching high school French and English, getting a PhD at the University of South Carolina, and grading papers. Several decades apart. Their paths finally converged in August, 2008, when Underwood gave a presentation about her work as a personal historian. Having begun work on his memoirs 20 years earlier, Jackson was interested in the topic. At the encouragement of Tracey Daniels,

Jackson approached Underwood about compiling his memoirs into a book. This was two weeks before Election Day 2008, and Jim was trying to get both Barack Obama and Ray Gasperson elected. After many detours, several interviews and many cups of coffee at the Trade Street Galley Coffeehouse, the two formalized Jackson’s memories with “My Life in the Briar Patch, The Memories of James Chapman Jackson.” Join us on Thursday, October 14, at 6 p.m. in the Polk County Public Library Community Meeting Room as Jackson and Underwood discuss the process of working together to create this book. Jackson will also share stories about growing up in Tryon and hitch-hiking across America. This event is free and open to the public. – article submitted

Dying dwarf hollies on Melrose Avenue have grown so large that it is difficult for cars to pull out safely from Pacolet Street and the Tryon Fine Arts Center’s front drive onto Melrose. The Tryon Parks Committee has encouraged Tryon Fine Arts Center to remove them for this reason. The area between the crepe myrtles will be covered with mulch, matching the rest of the Melrose Avenue crepe myrtles. The beautiful park, with its annuals planted year round, will soon be more visible to pedestrians and drivers. (photo submitted)

red with dye one day. How scrubby coyotes seem to be multiplying exponentially while foxes dwindle. How mountains are being scraped and trees clear cut to make way for thousands of theoretical suburbiastyle houses… and so on. But, hey, here’s an idea. Instead of focusing on the negative, let’s talk about how a flurry of unexpected acts of generosity came to the land trust, and how this relates to conservation and overall abundance (such a happy word when broken down into syllables creating “a bun dance”). It all started with a phone call from Randy Grobe. Anyone who knows Randy knows two things about him: (1) he owns the fabulous Frog & Swan, and (2) he is a prince. What you might not know is that Randy loves conservation and the abundant world of green all around him. Randy also operates estate and tag sales. Last winter, I had asked Randy if he would consider putting aside a few unsold items for PAC’s September Spectacular auction in, you guessed it,

Noreen Cothran from The Farm House. She knew that PAC was conducting a 1x3.5 for PAC” sale at the Septem“Tack adv. 9/24;10/1,8,15 ber Spectacular, and she had “some X287-038878 things” for me to pick up. Noreen’s mother lode turned out to be boxes and boxes of brand new designer belts, some sparkly sun glasses, lots of chaps and half-chaps. For those who don’t ride horses, these beautiful leather chaps normally sell for up to $450 a pair. Both Randy and Noreen said to “price the items to sell” to benefit PAC. Random acts of generosity cropped up around the Spectacular event like spring grass after a shower. A complete stranger, a lovely woman living out at the PAC-protected Walnut Creek Preserve, telephoned a few days before the event, wondering if it was “too late” to donate thousands of dollars’ worth of custom-made furniture. A “what can I do to help?” club formed which included horse show manager Lewis Pack, who made certain that PAC’s fundraising events aproned the horse events.

Steps to HOPE brings awareness to the issue of domestic violence in October

Editor’s Note: In recognition of October, National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Steps to HOPE has submitted the following to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence. To My Abuser, Yesterday you dropped me off for a doctors’ appointment. I thought you would stay with me as you usually do, but you had an errand to run. While waiting for the doctor, I found a wallet sized card with information about confidential services

offered for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in the form of shelter, counseling and assistance. Finding this card was the first ray of hope in my dark world. I imagined I would find a private minute to make that call one day, and even though I was terrified of being caught, I was determined to call because I was desperate. That opportunity finally did come and I found the nerve to call. With the help of the staff at Steps to HOPE I devised a

safe exit plan. I am in a shelter for now, getting counseling, working with a court advocate through the process of obtaining a Domestic Violence Protection Order against you. I am receiving the assistance I need to figure out what to do next, set goals and move on. Most of all, I am safe. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence or sexual assault, we can help. Call Steps to HOPE at 828894-2340, 24-hours a day. – article submitted
