Joint water line near completion by Leah Justice

Columbus, Saluda and Tryon are nearing the day when they can transfer water among themselves. The joint water line between Tryon and Saluda along Howard Gap Road and a storage tank have been completed and tested. The only remaining portion of the construction project, according to Tryon Town Engineer Joel Woods, is to install the control system that operates the system. Work to install the control system is scheduled to be done the last part of this

month and the first weeks of January. A booster pump has also been completed along Hwy. 108 across from old N.C. 19. The pump will have the ability to pump water from Columbus into the Tryon system and then to Saluda. “We should have all testing and trial runs complete and put the system in operation by the end of February,” Woods said. Another step in the joint water line project is for all three towns to approve

uses. Specifically, the board is interested in hearing ideas and suggestions related to areas in the town’s central business and general business districts along Trade Street, U.S. Hwy. 176, and N.C.

Cancer top cause of death in N.C., heart disease leads in mountains For the first time in about 10 years, cancer is the leading cause of death in North Carolina, according to data released by the state’s Division of Public Health. Heart disease remains the leading cause in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Data shows the most deadly forms of cancer in North Carolina are, in order: lung, throat, colorectral and breast. The state reports that 17,476 people died from cancer last year, while 17,133 died from heart disease. Combined, the two diseases were linked to about 45 percent of the deaths in North Carolina last year. The number of people dying from both diseases has declined in recent years, although deaths from heart disease have declined faster. Dr. Amy Denham, medical director for the state’s prevention and control branch, says those declines may be attributable to greater awareness. “People are maybe getting messages about healthy lifestyles, getting in for care and recognizing the early warning signs of heart disease,” says Denham. “There is some progress to be made with cancer and helping people understand how to prevent cancer.” Heart disease remained the leading cause of death in every county in Western North Carolina except Jackson and McDowell counties, where cancer was the leading killer. In Western North Carolina, heart disease remained the leading cause of death in every county with the exception of Jackson and McDowell counties, where cancer is the No. 1 killer.

Quilting bee donates quilts to veterans

Three red, white and blue lap quilts – one with many stars, one with hearts made to look like the American flag, and one with a toy soldier theme – were donated to the Charles George VAMC in Asheville as a salute to Veteran’s Day. The group of quilters composed of Laura Bitter, Shirley Arledge, Susy Basler, Laurel Brown, Phyllis Coriell, Shirley Elliot and Virginia Graves state in their accompanying card, “To the sacrificing soldier we have made these lap quilts with love and gratitude from a small but grateful quilting bee. God bless you all.” Darrel Moore, Polk County veterans service officer, stated, “What a beautiful and selfless way to salute all veterans.” – article submitted

Marydell Farm show results

In September, the Marydell Farm’s trailer headed out to the largest breed show in the country, Dressage at Devon. (For Mardell’s earlier event results, see the previous article in the Bulletin.) Marydell horses and the stallion Don Principe as a sire had a show to remember. Friends from Germany and the son of Don Principe’s breeder, Hannes Bruning and his friend Jens, flew over to participate by handling the herd from North Carolina. The farm also had the assistance of its regular handler, Brendan Curtis, as well as Christine Smith and crew. Also, for their very first breed show, Jennifer Marchand and Koryn Stahling, Don Principe’s rider and groom, drove down from New York to help and observe. This was their first time also to meet some of “Prince’s” offspring. Duet MF placed second in her class by only .4 percent behind the winner. She then went on to place third in the open Filly Championship. Ducatti MF, a two-year-old Don Principe colt and full brother to Donna Hall MF, and bred by Marydell, won the two-year-old colt/gelding class. “Dewey” was handled by Christine Smith for owner Carol Conner. He also won the Born in the USA award for the High Score two-year-old colt/gelding. Ducatti MF went on to be the third place open Colt/Gelding Champion. Flavius MF placed 8th in his class, which was so closely scored that 5th through 10th places were separated by only 1.7 percent. Quintessa MF, the Quarterback filly with a Grand Championship to her cred-

it, won her class and then went on to be Foal Reserve Champion. Quintessa MF also won the Mid Atlantic Hanoverian Breeder award for the highest scoring/ placing MAHB member bred or owned Hanoverian in the Young Horse Division. She also won her age/gender Born in the USA High Score. In the evening, the East Coast Region Championships were contested under the lights for foals, filly and colts. In the Foal Championship, Quintessa MF placed fourth overall in front of four judges from both the U.S.A. and Germany. Flavius garnered 6th place. In the colt division, Delacroix MF once again shone as a rising star and won the Reserve Champion title with only a tenth of a single percent separating the four judges. His once pasture mate, Ducatti MF, succeeded with a 6th place finish. Once again, Duet MF proved her quality. Duet was shown by Hannes and Jens to the Grand Champion Filly

for the GAIC Regionals. Her feminine head and face, correct conformation and correct gaits won her the title over many other champions from previous shows. On Wednesday, the day began with a surprise and hard earned blue ribbon win in the Breeder’s Group class by Maryanna Haymon/Marydell Farm. With the help of many family members, Brendan Curtis, Hannes, Jens, Christine Smith and her assistants Donna and Jason, the Marydell representatives were the first to take to the ring. The group, comprised of Duet MF, Quintessa MF and Flavius MF, was at its best. As Duet finished her run, the Germans were sporting huge grins. Then Quintessa about stole the entire show in one effort. As they came down the line, Christine, who was at the end of “Quin’s” lead, was high-fiving anyone within reach. Flavius’ power and elasticity at the young age of five months also gave promise of International Grand Prix success, prompting inquiries from several top GP riders. Another Don Principe offspring, Don Regale MF, bred by Marydell and owned by Brenda Ridenour of Ohio, also earned good placings at Devon. Finishing second in the four-year-old stallion in hand class handled by Bruce Griffin, Don Regale also placed second in the four-year-old Material class for stallions ridden by Pan Am medalist Katie Poulin. In addition to the show ring success, Don Principe made his debut as a sire of mares. Three daughters were presented to the AHS this year. All three acquired the nessesary scores to become Elite Eligible and Elite Mare Candidate. Two were site Champions. – article submitted
