A scene from a new video presented to Polk County commissioners last week by Polk County Agriculture Economic Director Lynn Sprague. The video promotes Polk's farms, providing views of some area farms and information about Polk County's agricultural history and economy. Sprague said he hopes local farms will see business from the exposure. The song heard on the video, "Out of Canada," was created specifically for Polk County's video. The video is posted on the Tryon Daily Bulletin's website (www.tryondailybulletin. com) under Videos.

Heavy storm brings winds, rain, hail Tryon siren gives warning for first time in decades by Leah Justice

A massive storm brought high winds, heavy rain, some hail and a tornado threat to the area Tuesday evening. The Tryon Fire Department activated its emergency signal

at 7:33 p.m. Tuesday because of a tornado warning issued by the National Weather Service. A possible tornado was reportedly coming toward Tryon from South Carolina. No touchdowns were reported in the area. The local weather was part of a major storm that affected much of the country, causing significant damage in some areas.

Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties

Hail was reported in some areas of Polk County. Some residents reported seeing hail the size of a quarter. The storm's heavy winds brought down one tree on Markham Road in Tryon and a small tree along U.S. 176, according to Tryon Fire Chief Joey Davis. Another tree and a (Continued on page 4)

Operation Western Shield results in 37 WNC arrests During the week of Oct. 4-8, the North Carolina Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force participated in Operation Western Shield. The operation involved a series of search warrants and “knock and talks” in an effort to identify individuals who exploit children, in particular, those that produce, distribute and download child pornography. During this portion of Operation Western Shield, 10 search warrants resulted in 37 arrests in the counties of Polk, Buncombe, Cherokee, Haywood, Henderson and Macon. The search warrants in Polk County were conducted by N.C. State Bureau ofhistory Investigation (SBI) natural agents and detectives with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children provided several cyber tips which were investigated during

the week of Operation Western Shield by members of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. Operation Western Shield is an ongoing cooperative effort by law enforcement agencies in Western North Carolina who are affiliated with the ICAC Task Force. The goal of Operation Western Shield is to identify, apprehend and bring to prosecution individuals who exploit children. Additionally, one goal is to ensure registered sex offenders are in compliance and take those who are not in compliance into custody. Polk County Sheriff Donald Hill says, “The biggest hope and potential is that with today’s modern technology we can work closely with the Center for Missing and Exploited Children to pinpoint the origin of such videos and computer activity to help locate exploited children.”

an area approximately one mile in diameter around the town. Tryon officials say the siren will be activated for tornado warnings that are issued specifically for Tryon, which was the case Tuesday. Other areas of the country saw major weather events over the last couple of days, including strong winds, rain and tornadoes throughout the country and snow for parts of the Midwest. The storm reached wind gusts in some areas of the nation of up to 81 mph Tuesday across the Midwest and South. The storm continued Wednesday, with snow falling in the Dakotas and Minnesota. The National Weather Service reported that as much as eight inches of snow fell in North Dakota.

Letter to the Editor

Sheriff Hill’s open door policy To the Editor: There are glowing campaign ads for Sheriff Hill which state in part, “He has the experience and knowledge needed and he has the respect of the community and the deputies.” North Carolina General Statutes charge our sheriff in addition to his criminal justice responsibilities to perform three duties: 1) Act as bailiff and marshal for the courts of the state; 2) Administer and execute criminal and civil justice; and 3) Act as the ex officio detention officer. Let’s take a look at how Sheriff Hill’s 20 years of experience and knowledge in law enforcement are allowing him to serve and protect the citizens of Polk County. November 2008 Donald Hill became sheriff of Polk County. Four months later in March 2009 Stephen Taylor escaped from the Polk County Courthouse. Sheriff Hill had knowledge of Taylor’s history of evading law enforcement yet he did nothing to coordinate with the courts to ensure Taylor remained restrained. In his state mandated responsibility as bailiff and marshal for the court it was

Sheriff Hill’s responsibility to take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of the court and the citizens of Polk County. He failed to do either. Six months later, according to jail records on September 26, 2009, a female (who I will not name) escaped from the Polk County Jail. This escape was not publicized. This female just walked out of the jail without the jailers realizing she was gone. One month later in October 2009 Sheriff Hill and other members of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office were advised that inmate Dennis Elliott was planning to escape from the jail. Sheriff Hill stood guard over inmates while members of his staff tested the escape plan. Instead of transferring Elliott to a more secure facility to ensure the safety of sheriff’s office employees and the citizens of Polk County Elliott was locked down in his cell and things went back to normal at the jail. Two months later in mid December 2009 Dennis Elliott was given inmate trusty status. Even though Sheriff Hill was aware of Elliott’s October escape plans he failed to check Elliott’s criminal history, which includes an escape, and he failed to “just say no” to Elliott becom-

ing a trusty. One month later on January 18, 2010 Dennis Elliott escaped from the Polk County Jail, taking with him a sheriff’s office .357 Glock automatic handgun which was used to car jack me. Elliott then led law enforcement on a high speed chase which ended in Spartanburg County when Elliott crashed into a vehicle carrying a mother and her four children. Sheriff Hill said he was sorry for any inconvenience this caused. Let’s put this into proper perspective by saying it was only by the grace of God that no one was killed during this escape. Five months later in June 2010 at 4 a.m. two trusty inmates go outside to empty the trash. One jailer is with the inmates. Video shows the inmates walking back toward the jail with no jailer in sight for more than a minute. It took Dennis Elliott much less time than this to steal one of Sheriff Hill’s weapons. Less than a month later after I had been assured that things had been tightened up at the jail on 30 July 2010, a male (who I will not name) was erroneously released from the jail when he still had an unsatisfied bond of $4,000. It is time for a change in the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. – Annette Sepulveda

Friday - OctOber 29, 2010

Citizens around the world say they are concerned that the end of cheap oil is closer than people think. New sources of fossil fuels are dwindling and extraction is becoming increasingly expensive, not to mention the environmental damage caused by their production and removal. That’s bad news in itself, these citizens say. They ask, how many of us realize the extent to which we all depend on oil? It provides transportation and shipping. It heats many homes and businesses. It produces a significant amount of the electricity for homes, businesses and industry. Massive amounts of oil are consumed in wars. It is used in the production of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. It plays a major role in the production of food and its shipping. To compound the problem, the world’s consumption of oil just keeps growing and political, economic and social upheavals are almost certain consequences. Recognizing this impend-

ing crisis, concerned citizens around the world have decided they can’t wait for governments and global organizations to take action. They are acting locally by helping their communities transition from such heavy dependence on oil towards greater resilience and sustainability. I n Wes ter n North Carolina, groups in Asheville and Hendersonville have been formed. Now a group has organized in Polk County and is known as Transition Polk County (TPC). Its mission is to encourage and assist Polk County in a process of transitioning to a community drawing increasingly on local resources and less dependent on oil and fossil fuels. A major part of that process involves raising awareness in the community. Members of the TPC team are prepared to give presentations to schools, clubs, associations, churches and government organizations.

‘Guitarists in the Round’ in Saluda To celebrate a successful first year in business, Lichty Guitars, in collaboration with Frank and Amy Beeson, is hosting an evening of entertainment: “Guitarists in the Round” in Saluda on October 29. When a new business starts up in these tough economic times folks mainly just hold their breath. “I’ll give it 2-3 months,” they might mutter over coffee at the local diner. When local home contractor Jay Lichty shifted from high-end home building to high-end acoustic guitar building, it’s hard to say just what people thought. Now, one year into the new endeavor, Lichty is building a national reputation for his one-of-a-kind guitars and ukuleles. Featured musicians: • Dale Rucker – Acoustic Fusion - You’ll hear the influences of Michael Hedges and William Ackerman in Dale’s expressive pieces. • Doug Dacey – Doug is well known in the Tryon area for his voice, guitar playing and songwriting with such bands at The Lone Derangers and The Trophy Husbands. • Jay Goree – As a founding

on guitar/vocals, Jason Boyd on harmonica, Mike Pelz on guitar/ vocals, Jonathon McDade on bass, Isaac Wells on drums, and Steve O’Neal on the didgeridoo. This funkadelic sound blends the rhythm of reggae, the ride of rockabilly, the beat of bluegrass, puts some roll to the rock, and some hip to the hop. On Tuesday, November 2 at 6:30 p.m. Jeff Michels will perform. Michels was born and raised in the apple country of New York state, not so far from Woodstock. A songwriter for over 30 years, Michels has lived and performed in Virginia, Maryland, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, Sacramento and Atlanta at numerous coffee houses, clubs, bars, parties, basements, festivals and street fairs. He accompanies his vocals with both acoustic guitar and piano, with a leaning towards the rock and folk that influenced the “change the world” generation of the 70s, and many of his songs bring that change up to date. – article submitted


The Blue Note Grille in Flat Rock presents Dust ‘n The Wynn Friday, October 29 at 9 p.m. Dustin Maxwell wrote a song as soon as he learned his first three chords, and has been at it ever since, with songs that combine elements of folk and country with a dash of soul. Songwriter and 12 string guitarist Bobby Wynn’s playing style reflects a wide range of influences, including Appalachian, rock and Celtic. They began playing together in ‘04 and found that the stylistic pairing was unique. “We like to have a good time playing music,” says Bobby. “But we’re also about overcoming some of the obstacles we’ve encountered, like poverty, prison, alcoholism, severe depression, and that comes through in the music.” On Saturday, October 30 at 7 p.m., the Blue Note Grill presents its 5th annual Halloween Party featuring Ten Toe Turbo Ten Toe Turbo features a musical collaboration of Tony Campbell on guitar/vocals, Heath Patrick
