Polk seeks bids for water line to Peniel Rd. Engineers estimate costs at $180,000 by Leah Justice

Polk County commissioners have decided to seek bids to run the county's main trunk water line from the Green Creek crossroads to the intersection of Peniel Road and Hwy. 9. Commissioners met Monday

and agreed to seek bids in order to determine actual costs of running the line to Peniel Road, which would be an extension of just under a mile. The county was considering extending the water line to a restaurant proposed by Jason Schlabach near the Green Creek crossroads. Schlabach also has future plans for shops on the property.

Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties

C o m m i s s i o n e r To m m y Melton suggested a couple of weeks ago if the county is going to extend the water line to the restaurant it should go a little farther to Peniel Road, since the county may in the future run its water lines along Peniel Road. County engineer Dave Odom presented estimates Monday on (Continued on page 4)

Wolverines prove tougher Landrum rolls over than Avery, winning 36-12 Southside Christian 41-7 Cannon throws for 2, runs for 2 TDs

by Jordan DeVere

On Friday, Oct. 15, the Polk County Wolverines hosted the Avery County Vikings on homecoming night. The game was very physical but the Wolverines proved the tougher of the two teams, coming out a clear victor 36-12. The game was dead even to start, with both teams failing to score until the final three minutes when the Wolverines drove down the field and scored on an impressive 45-yard pass from Andre Overholt to Ryan Thomas. This was just the beginning for Overholt, who would go on to throw four more touchdowns before the night's end. The second quarter followed almost the same pattern as the first quarter, with both teams playing evenly until the final three minutes.

Andre Overholt

That’s when the Wolverines took over. The Wolverine’s offense, again behind Overholt, drove (Continued on page 8)

Landrum’s Brandon Cannon lived up to his last name as he threw two cannons last Friday night for touchdowns and ran another two touchdowns, one a 65-yard interception return. The cardinals dominated the game at Southside Christian, with Southside Christian just avoiding a shutout by scoring in the fourth quarter. Landrum is on a roll, with Friday night’s win being the fifth straight victory for the Cardinals. Landrum got off to a hot start with a first quarter 34 yard pass

from Cannon to Tyler Logan connecting for the first touchdown of the game. A two-point conversion was no good for the Cardinals, putting Landrum on the scoreboard 6-0. Cole McDowell then ran for a 22-yard touchdown with a good kick, putting the Cards up 13-0 in the first quarter. Cannon’s one yard run for a touchdown put the Cards up by three touchdowns going into halftime with Southside Christian remaining scoreless. Following Cannon’s 65-yard interception TD in the third, Cannon connected with Peyton Carter on a 40-yard pass for the Card’s in the fourth.

Polk's defense played just as well as its offense, with J.J Maxwell recording 13 total tackles and Juan Hicks recording 9. Markece Cunningham also added to his stats, recording two and a half sacks. Polk County dominated on both sides of the ball on homecoming night, which led to a 36-12 victory. “We came out and played Wolverine football," Coach Ollis said. "We played great on defense and made some big plays offensively and rushed the ball well when we needed to.” The Wolverines (7-1, 3-1) are now in a three-way tie for the conference lead with Owen and Mountain Heritage. They play Thomas Jefferson away this Friday.




Widnesday , October 20, 2010 Tryon Daily Bulletin  / The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper


to the Editor: In the spirit of healthy and honest religious debate, I write to respond to a previous letter written by a local pastor in the September 3, 2010 edition entitled “Bible facts, not fiction.” The author’s sincerity and good will are not only admirable; they are inspiring. As a local pastor of a Christian community and a lecturer for Catholic Scripture Study International, I would like to offer a few remarks regarding the authority of Scripture. Several years ago I had an unexpected exchange with a kind young lady at a Verizon store. Not dressed in clerical attire and in a rush to meet a friend, I had no interest in spending more than ten minutes on this errand. The young lady noticed the clerical collar on my license photo. She asked from which denomination I was a minister. Not interested in extraneous conversation and more interested in getting on with my day, I briefly explained that I was a Catholic priest. Despite my best efforts to avoid what seemed at the time to be an inopportune conversation, she continued to both inquire about, and challenge, Catholicism. Inwardly, I turned my eyes toward heaven and said, “ok, Lord, my time is not my own is it? As you wish…” And so, I engaged. What seemed to be at issue is whether or not Catholics are “Bible-believing” Christians. Having studied these matters and knowing that our time was limited I cut to the chase. I asked her, “Why do you care what the Bible says?” She explained that it was the “Word of God” to which I replied, “Oh, how do you know that?” As expected, the question gave way to an awkward pause. I’m not sure if she was more surprised at my questioning the authority of the Bible or that she did not seem to have a sufficient answer with which to reply. Nonetheless, she gave her best effort. Her argument was circular. In other words, she tried to establish the Bible’s authority by appealing to the Bible’s authority. Jesus did not even do this regarding his own personal authority. He appealed not only to his witness, but also to that of the Father’s, in whom one either does or does not believe. (See John 8:12-20.) This was the logic behind her claim, “The Bible is the Word of God because it says so.” To which I replied, “What about the Quran or the Book of Mormon? Do not these make the same claim?” She replied, “But I am Christian.” I said, “Mormon’s regard themselves as Christian. The question stands, how do you know your Bible is the Word of God? It can’t simply be because it says so. Other writings claim the same.” She was silent. I kindly replied, “Let me help you. Let’s think this through. Who told you the Bible is the Word of God?” “My pastor and my parents,” she replied. “Very well, and how do they know?” Prompting her I continued, “Probably, their pastors and parents as well.” “I imagine so,” she said. “And what about them, the same?” She nodded in agreement. “I suppose we could go back over five hundred years this way, what do you think?” It was obvious she was in agreement. “So, the Bible goes back long before the ‘Protestant/Catholic’ distinction. How far back does it go? To the time of Christ?” She thought intently. It seemed she wanted to say ‘yes,’ but she hesitated, sensing that I would supply an answer. “No,” I said. “Jesus did not hand anyone a New Testament before he ascended to the Father. He wrote no known books or letters. As for the Old Testament, these books were well established at least one hundred years before he was born. As fellow Christians, ones who follow Jesus, I think we can then both accept the Old Testament as inspired by God, if for no other reason because Jesus is our authority and he bore witness to it. What of the New Testament though? The earliest New Testament texts are not written until at least a decade after the death and resurrection of Jesus. It wasn’t until over three hundred years after that, that the debates were finally settled regarding which revered Christian writings were considered divinely inspired. Do you know who settled the debates? The bishops of the Church did. These are successors to the Apostles who were believed by Christians to have been given a divinely inspired mission and the needed grace to discern such matters of faith. The meetings of these bishops are called councils. And there was more than one that took up this issue. So, as I see it, I am a Biblebelieving Christian because the Church that Jesus instituted not only wrote those sacred writings, but also discerned those texts to have been inspired by God, having weeded them out from those that were not. That’s why I believe the Bible is the Word of God. It is precisely because I am Catholic, not in spite of it.” Upon completing my Verizon business, with sincerity and gratitude she walked me to the parking lot. The bottom line, the Bible did not fall from heaven. It is a library of religious and spiritual writings, discerned by the bishops of the church to be the written Word of God. Their authority is rooted in their claim to be the successors of the original twelve apostles, chosen by Jesus, who comes from the Father. To answer the question posed to the young lady at the Verizon store, this is how my Christian faith leads me to believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. One cannot believe in the Bible alone. Its authority must depend upon the authority of others if it is to be grounded in the authority of Christ. Otherwise the New Testament texts are left to float in history among many other Christian writings alleging to be epistles and gospels with now one to discern one from another. Not only would Christians unfortunately be left to interpret the Bible for themselves, they would first have to decide for themselves which texts were divinely inspired. Could you imagine each Christian having his/her own, unique Bible? Although I admire the biblical faith of the pastor who places his commitment to the written Word above even his own denomination, I ask respectfully, “If it was not the Church, who told you the Bible is the Word of God?” —Rev. Patrick Winslow Pastor, St. John the Baptist Catholic Church stjohns - page 17

“See, I do nothing all day but sit around,” 86-year-old Mary DeRuvo insists, waving her arms about in her large, homey room at Ridge Rest Assisted Living in Columbus. She can’t keep her smile at bay, though, because she knows that statement is a “fib.” If it were true, who has been responsible for creating the many hundreds of hand-made objects of every color, shape, fabric and material surrounding her? These are not kits DeRuvo is working from – these are all designs and ideas right out of her imagination. And while she loves making these things just for the joy of working with her hands, she says she loves even more the fact that she can donate them to Hospice of the Carolina Foothills (HoCF) in hopes they will provide a little cheerful color for patients. How did it happen that this craftswoman living on a ridge top outside Columbus came to connect with Hospice? It was serendipity when HoCF Executive Director Jean met DeRuvo while visiting her own father at Ridge Rest. And you can’t meet DeRuvo without “meeting” her handiwork in boxes, bags, on table tops and even under her bed. It was a win-win when DeRuvo offered her creations to Jean to brighten the lives of Hospice NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING NOVEMBER 1, 2010 Notice is hereby given that at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, November 1, 2010, in the R. J. Foster Hall of Justice, Womack Building, 40 Courthouse Street, Columbus, N.C. 28722, the Polk County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing. The purpose of the hearing is to receive public comment on the financing of the new Human Services Facility, not to exceed $1.5 million by the use of an installment financing contract (N.C.G.S. 160A-20). If you are unable to attend the hearing, you may mail in your comments. Anne Britton Clerk to the Board Adv. 10/20

patients. “Her talent and generosity are Hospice’s good fortune,” says Jean. “Mary is our unofficial Hospice volunteer.” DeRuvo concedes she has given dozens of her creations to Hospice, but says that “many people get even more out of giving gifts to others than the people who receive them.” This giving is not new to her. She’s been making these “little lovelies” for 20 years, donating them to good causes. She estimates she has made thousands during the past several decades. And when the holidays roll around, she adds to the mountain views from Ridge Rest’s dining room by making a table ornament for each of the 12 residents. “Mary has a wonderful talent for making beautiful ornaments,” says Linda Herman, Ridge Rest manager. “She is constantly working on new ideas and possibilities to make and give to people. She is one of a kind,” she adds. “I just like thinking that some of these will put a smile on someone’s face” DeRuvo says. HocF staff and patients can attest to the fact that they do. If you would like to help put a smile on someone’s face, contact the HoCF Volunteer Coordinator Tracey Brannon at 864-457-9125 or volunteer manager Yvonne Gilliam at 838-894-7000 to learn of the many volunteer opportunities available. – article submitted

Western Carolina Veterinary Emergency Hospital is open 24 hours a day to serve the needs of the WNC/Upstate S.C. domestic animals. – article submitted


Halloween’s tradition of candy, costumes and trick or treating can be a potentially dangerous time for pets. The staff at Western Carolina Regional Animal Hospital and Veterinary Emergency Hospital in Flat Rock would like area residents to be aware of their pet’s needs during this popular holiday. “You’re not giving your pets a treat when you feed them candy. Every year we see many cases of chocolate toxicity,” says Dr. Fred Rosen of the animal hospital. “It’s especially disheartening to hear of a beloved family pet becoming sick (or worse) from overindulgence in something that was never meant to be fed to an animal. So the bottom line is this: be good to your pets by not allowing them to eat ‘people food,’ keeping them inside, away from cars, loud noises and too many visitors, and make sure glow sticks, candy, and sparkling decorations are put away from them.” Halloween candy wrappers, costumes and decorations can be hazardous if ingested, potentially causing obstruction of the digestive system and, if metal, could even cause toxic poisoning. Symptoms can appear similar to toxic ingestion: lethargy, vomiting and diarrhea. Your pet may not understand what’s going on Animals can be frightened by Halloween costumes and loud noises and may become overstressed by too much noise and people in costumes. Here are a few tips to keep this Halloween safe for your pets: 1. Walk Fido before visitors come for a party or before dark. 2. Keep your pet in an interior quiet room or a crate for their safety. 3. Be sure your pets have current identification tags. Microchips are always a good idea. 4. Keep black cats inside. Many times black cats have been treated harshly or abused, so be aware. 5. Keep your pets and your

Beneficial Foods joins ‘Non-GMO Project’ to support food labeling Casual Fine Dining

ask, “Could new species of organisms wipe out older strains, thereby decreasing biodiversity?” It is known that crops altered to be resistant to herbicides can transfer this trait to nearby plants and weeds. How might other plants be affected by Roundup Ready soy beans, for example, that have been engineered to be resistant to the glyphosate contained in the Roundup herbicide? Why is the GMO vs. NonGMO issue so controversial? Busy consumers want the information necessary to decide whether or not to purchase GMOs. Because the products have already been released and are continuing to be developed at a fast clip, consumers will have to weigh the risks and make informed choices. Food labeling is one way to support the consumer. For more information on the Non-GMO Project and non-GMO products, contact Beneficial Foods at 828-894-0737. – article submitted

It has been estimated that 80 percent of commercially available food products contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Processed foods, including some canned soups, frozen pizza, baby formula, dry cereal, and Aspartame sweetener, are made with GMOs. In 2009, according to the USDA, 93 percent of soy, 93 percent of cotton, and 86 percent of corn grown in the U.S. were GMO. Some people are alarmed by the rate at which GMO products are created and sold. Many scientists are concerned that there are still too many unknowns. Through the introduction of a new gene, it is possible that allergies could be triggered. It is also possible that a new gene could deactivate an old gene, and after consumption over time, human health could be affected.

Jerry Alexander and a moonshine still. (photo submitted)

Local history of moonshine in Spartanburg Friday, October 22 The Spartanburg County Historical Association will host a public lunch-and-learn lecture on moonshine Friday, October 22, starting at 12:30 p.m. at the Chapman Cultural Center. The guest speaker will be author Jerry Alexander, and his program is entitled “Where Have All Our Moonshiners Gone?” You are welcome to bring your lunch. Alexander is actually bringing a moonshine still to the event. Moonshine is homemade illegal liquor, and the contraption that makes the moonshine is called a still. The Dark Corner community of Spartanburg County has a historical reputation as a notorious and prolific producer of moonshine. Alexander was a publisher of specialty magazines across the southeast, including fishing, boating, horse and cattle, and tourism titles during his 40-year career. He was also the publisher and owner of the Pickens Sentinel newspaper in Pickens before retirement. Since then, he has authored five books, including the one he will be presenting and discussing, called “Where Have All Our Moonshiners Gone?” He makes talks all over the Upstate and western North Carolina.

‘An Enchanted Evening’ presented in Hendersonville

The Arts Council of Henderson County will present “An Enchanted Evening” November 4, 5 and 6. This intimate cabaret revue, celebrating great love songs from the golden age of the American musical – 1920s to the 1970s – will be performed upstairs at Mike’s on Main, 303 North Main Street in downtown Hendersonville. Performances are at 8 p.m. each evening, and tickets include wine and light hors d’oeuvres. Reservations are strongly recommended as only 40 seats are available per performance. “An Enchanted Evening” pays tribute to the best composers and lyricists of the American musical theater: Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Rogers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Lowe, Kander and Ebb and Stephen Sondheim. Some of the shows from which selections will be performed include: “Showboat,” “Girl Crazy,” “Oklahoma,” “South Pacific,” “My Fair Lady,” “Call Me Madam,” “Follies,” and “A Little Night Music.” The production is conceived and directed by Francis J. Cullinan, a STLUKEH - page 100 SLHO-039496

member of the arts council board, and features four leading musical theater artists from Western North Carolina: Brad Curtioff, music director, and vocalists Carol Duermit, Cathy Walgenbach, and Michael Cheek. All have been involved with previous arts council productions. Cullinan has directed “Heaven in Your Pocket” (and is one of the co-writers) and “Three Viewings.” Duermit and Walgenbach appeared in “Heaven in Your Pocket,” and Duermit and Cheek were part of the cast for “Three Viewings,” with Curtioff providing the background music. “‘An Enchanted Evening’ will cover the late 1920s, when the musical as a form was first developed, through the late 1970s before the ‘British Invasion’ and the start of the so-called juke-box musicals,” according to Cullinan. “We’ll explore the many, and sometimes troublesome, aspects of love.” For more information or to make reservations contact The Arts Council of Henderson County at 828-6938504 or Visit the website at – article submitted

The 2010 annual banquet of the Second Wind Hall of Fame was held on October 1 at Tryon Estates to recognize and celebrate the induction of 17 new members whose outstanding community volunteer services qualified them for that honor. They joined the ranks of more than 250 volunteers who have been similarly honored over the past 30 years. The roster of new inductees, and their sponsoring organizations, include: Jack Carey (Habitat for Humanity), Dave Cornelius (Rotary Club of Tryon), Robert L Dick (Rotary Club of Tryon), Bob Dockendorf (Pacolet Area Conservancy), Don Eifert (Foothills Equestrian

CHANGED 1/5/10 Nature Center), Hugh Hursey (ComVERA-034191 munity Chorus), Ann Inks (Tryon Garden Club), Wayne Inks (Polk Vocational Services), Robert Lair Jr (House of Flags Museum), Nancy McPherson (American Association of University Women), Richard Rinehart (Polk Vocational Services), Loren Smith (Tryon Fine Arts Center), Ronald Smith (Hospice of the Carolina Foothills), James M. Sutherin (Habitat for Humanity), Paul Sutherland (House of Flags Museum), Judith Warden (Tryon Fine Arts Center), and Manfred Walter (Community Chorus). President Larry Poe asked each of the current members to be diligent

about recognizing other outstanding community volunteers. Every current member is authorized to initiate the evaluation process with the board of SWHF for a deserving candidate. He pointed out that “each of us is here today because some one person took the initiative to bring recognition to our volunteer efforts.” Poe announced that two scholarship grants had been given this year to Lance Smith to assist him in seminary education. Comedienne Pam Stone, the program speaker, kept the 120 attendees in stitches for 30 minutes following the banquet. – article submitted

• Every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. • This year more than 207,000 new cases of breast cancer are expected in the United States. • One woman in eight who lives to age 85 will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in women between the ages of 40 and 55. • 1,990 men are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and 480 are predicted to die. • Seventy percent of all breast cancers are found through breast self-exams. Not all lumps are de-

tectable by touch. We recommend regular mammograms and monthly breast self-exams. • Eight out of ten breast lumps are not cancerous. If you find a lump, don’t panic – call your doctor for an appointment. • Mammography is a low-dose x-ray examination that can detect breast cancer up to two years before it is large enough to be felt. When breast cancer is found early, the five-year survival rate is 96 percent. This is good news. Over 2 million breast cancer survivors are alive in America today. On Thursday, October 21, St.

Luke’s Hospital, along with Dr. Sandra McCormack and Dr. Celeste Wiltse, are sponsoring free breast exams, education, and when needed, a referral for a mammogram. Held during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this free community service is designed to provide early detection for the best protection. Organizers say they are particularly trying to reach women who don’t see a physician regularly. Spaces are limited and appointments are necessary. Call 828-8942408 to schedule an appointment. – article submitted
