Tryon tries for Oprah's small town program Tryon has answered Oprah Winfrey's call last week for small town nominations. Nominated towns will be considered for inclusion in a program of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to be called "Come to My Hometown." Winning towns will be the site location for a remote broadcast during the last season of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
Crys Armbrust, Tryon's business and tourism development coordinator, said the application included a cover letter, nomination narrative explaining why Tryon would be a good choice for inclusion in the program and a five-minute video of the town. For the video, Armbrust said he used a still photography video he created last year for
Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties
Tryon Downtown Development Association titled "Tryon, NC: Gem of the Blue Ridge Mountains." That video can be viewed on the ‘About Us’ page of TDDA’s website at www. downtowntryon.org. "Needless to say, were we to be selected [for the Oprah Winfrey show], Tryon (and Polk County) would benefit much," Armbrust said.

The park is adjacent to the Airborne & Special Operations Museum and borders historic downtown Fayetteville. It will include a visitor’s center, community lawn and plaza, reflective garden, and amphitheater. The park will serve not only as a reflective and contemplative space but also as a gathering place to welcome and honor veterans. Designers say the park will be contemporary, unique and bold – absent of specific recognition to individuals, places, or battlegrounds. The primary park theme is a veteran’s journey: life before, during, and after service. One facet of this tribute to the state’s veterans will consist of a wall bearing the bronze-cast right hand of a veteran from each of North Carolina’s 100 counties who had exemplary military service and who, following discharge, contributed substantially to their community and veterans
welfare. The veteran’s hand will represent all veterans from each county, past and present, women and men, living and deceased, from every branch of service. (Continued on page 4)

Greene was a small business owner in the community for many years. He is active in community service, having served on the boards of many non-profit organizations. Another facet of the NC Veterans Park tribute is a separate hand casting of four citizens from each county, veterans and non-veterans, who have contributed support above and beyond for the veterans of their county. These castings will be displayed on columns of support indicating their outstanding support for veterans of their county and all veterans. For Polk County, the coun(Continued on page 5)

Scherping graduates from UNC technology officers program David Scherping, chief technology officer for Polk County Schools, has successfully graduated from the 2010 Certified Education Chief Technology Officers (CeCTO) Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Government. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and MCNC partnered with the UNC School of Government to offer this groundbreaking professional development opportunity. The CeCTO program is the first education specific program for chief technology officers (CTOs) and chief information officers (CIOs) in the nation and began in February of 2010. The program is designed for K-12 CTOs and CIOs whose responsibilities require a broad understanding of management, leadership, and enterprise topics.
The course is approximately 240 hours in length. Course instruction covers enterprise issues, strategic technology planning, communication, project management, emerging trends, risk assessment and management, acquisition management, change management, leadership, security, legal issues and financial trends. David Scherping is one of the 34 K-12 CIOs who successfully completed the course in its inaugural year. The CeCTO program is a new offering in the nationally acclaimed Certified Government Chief Information Officers’ series, which was pioneered by the UNC School of Government’s Center for Public Technology. The CGCIO program, started in 2005, was the first of its kind in the nation and has successfully graduated more than 400 public sector IT professionals across the country.

The county veterans service officer for each county was also asked to provide a sample of soil from their county. The soil will be incorporated into the building of the columns at the park, and a sprinkling of it will also be used in the casting of the veteran’s hand. The names of the individuals selected will not be incorporated on the wall or columns, because they represent all veterans and supporters. However, their names will be archived in the visitor’s center of the park. Park supporters say, "We have all heard the words of politicians about sacrifice, dedication, honor, and service to the county. The individuals above, and others in the county, live it as a daily part of their lives. – submitted by Darrel Moore, Polk County Veterans Service Officer

Tryon will be able to buy Vaughn Creek greenway Town gets $25k PCCF grant by Leah Justice
Tryon is a major step closer to its goal of providing a greenway connecting three town parks. Tryon Town Council announced last week that it received word recently the town will be awarded $25,000 from the Polk County Community Foundation. The money will be used as a required match for a $101,000 grant from the NC Clean Water Management Trust Fund. The combined funding will enable the town to purchase approximately 19 acres needed
for the greenway along Vaughn Creek that the town plans to provide access for bicycle, pedestrian and equestrian travel. The Tryon Parks Committee has been working on creating a greenway that will eventually connect three town parks. The town hopes to acquire approximately 19 acres of wooded property that has been left undisturbed by the Smith family in Tryon. Tryon Parks Committee member John Vining says the $101,000 from the N.C. Clean Water Management Trust Fund, which was announced in late October was contingent on the parks committee/town provid-
ing a $25,000 match. Now that the Polk County Community Foundation (Bradley Fund) has informed the town that it will be awarded the $25,000, the town can proceed with acquiring the 19-acre parcel, Vining said. “This is a significant development for the town,” Vining says. “I am hopeful that it can transferred by the end of 2010.” Also part of the project is another $95,000 grant the town received from the NC Division of Water Resources. That funding can strictly be used for stream and trail improvements for the project.
The sale price for the property is $110,500, but the project, including surveying and closing costs, is estimated at $126,000. An open house was recently held that offered tours of Vaughn Creek where the greenway is planned. The ultimate goal of the parks committee is to connect three town-owned properties with a pedestrian, bicycle and equestrian trail. The trail would expand from Ziglar Field, to Lanier Park to Woodland Park. The trail would include easy access to the railroad, and there is an existing trail bed. The total system would be about two miles of greenway.

happened upon a skinny little Appaloosa mare in a dirt lot. Her owner no longer wanted to trail ride her; she wasn’t needed any more. Luckily this couple knew a few things about horses and decided to take her home with them and find the little mare a new family. Some extra food, good grass and a few trail rides later this couple put an ad up in the local feed store. At this very same time, a sweet “horse crazy” young girl had convinced her parents to let her take some riding lessons. She caught the bug and now dreamed of having her own horse. After some poking and prodding her parents answered an ad they found at the local feed store: an Appaloosa mare – for sale! The little girl, whose name is Amanda, met the little mare, who’s name is Nia, and as most dreams happen (when they come true) it was destined they be together.

Amanda started to take lessons from a local professional. After about six weeks of lessons Amanda and Nia
entered the Foothills Riding Club Horse Trial at FENCE where they won their dressage class and successfully
completed the cross-country course and stadium jumping. They ended up high point!

For the entire family, Flat Rock Playhouse presents “A Christmas Carol.” Adapted by Christopher Schario from the book by Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol” is onstage December 1 through December 23. “The story of ‘A Christmas Carol’ is pretty iconic. We wanted to give our production a chance to have its own look and feel about it – so we’ve set this version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ in a curiosity shop packed to the rafters with oddities and objects that delight,” says director Neela Muñoz. “What I like is how with the use of a curiosity shop, there is the possibility of anything happening from a staging perspective, I can make it whatever best fits the situation – the space can transform to become warm or cold or creepy. The story springs out of this quirky and unusual place full of nooks and crannies – with people popping in and popping out. It’s magical how it’ll come together. The actors come out and realize the story in a threedimensional way by using what is there. Scrooge and Marley’s Marc office will be made of theBrady objects that are found there,” Muñoz is offering
continues. The Playhouse production will star Damian Duke Domingue, Bill Muñoz, Lynn Llewelyn Penny, Paige Posey and Peter Thomas along with fiddle player, Ralph Congdon. Director Neela Muñoz added a children’s ensemble comprised of Louise Cummins (Atkinson Elementary), Nicolas Hopkin (Hendersonville Middle School), Noelle Muñoz (Hendersonville Elementary), Isabel Ward (Homeschool) and Heath Wines (West High). “The kids will operate as extra magic makers, who participate in shifting the environment and they also enter the story to be the town or be the Cratchit children - so the space is multi-purpose and so are the people.” Executive producer Park Ridge Health presents “A Christmas Carol.” Flat Rock Playhouse is located at 2661 Greenville Hwy in Flat Rock, NC. Evening performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and matinee performances are most Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m.; with one Tuesday evening perPGA formanceProfessional on December 21. – article submitted Golf Instruction

“Tis the Season” for holiday music. Hendersonville Community Band, directed by co-conductors Fern Barber and Walter Moore, will perform a festive concert of traditional holiday music on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 5, 3 p.m., in Blue Ridge Conference Hall at BRCC. “Intrada on Regent Square,” transcribed for concert band by community band conductor Walter F. Moore, is an introduction to the season’s favorite music. Moore’s transcription was inspired by a recording performed by the Hendon Brass Band, recognized as one of England’s finest. The theme is an English Christmas Carol written in 1867. It is included in most Protestant fee-only portfolio management Hymnals as “Angels from the for cautious investors Realms of Glory.” Percussionist Russ Wilson 22 North Trade Street, Tryon returns to HCB as narrator of the 828.859.9252 popular “Twas the Night Before www.low-stress-investing.com Christmas,” Newell H.

Calling all Messiah singers
Remember last year when director Jan Impey (left), and pianist Pam McNeil teamed up to put all the singers in their proper places at Tryon Fine Arts Center? This year’s line-up of director Mark Schweizer and pianist Beth Child will include graduate students from Converse College singing the solo parts. Besides the familiar Christmas selections of Handel’s masterpiece in Part 1, some choruses will be added from Parts 2 and 3. Don’t miss ringing in the holiday season with this familiar and much-loved music on Thursday, December 2 at 7:30 p.m. For more information, call the Tryon Fine Arts Center at 828-859-8322.

• Band concert (continued from page 11)
An unusual march by Edwin Franko Goldman aptly titled “Kindergarten March” includes seven children’s songs which Goldman has woven into the music. Listen for “There’s Music in the Air,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Go In and Out the Window,” “Little Bo Peep,” “Au Claire de la Lune,” “Time For Bed” and the “Jolly Farmer.” Trumpet soloist Russ Sena is featured in the allegro movement of “Concerto for Trumpet” by Haydn, arranged for military band by W.J. Duthoit. Since moving to Western North Carolina, Sena has performed as a soloist and directed in concert with the Hendersonville Community Band. He performs with the Russ Martin Ensemble, Blue Ridge Brass Quintet, The Incontinentals Blues Band and the Community Jazz Band at UNCA. Sena has performed with the Asheville and Enka/Candler Community Bands and the UNCA Baroque Brass Ensemble. He has organized and produced concerts featuring The Blue Ridge Brass Quintet at Hendersonville
Library. “Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral” by Richard Wagner, has been transcribed by Lucien Cailliet to display the colors and pageantry of the concert band. Fifty years ago, Dr. William D. Revelli and the University of Michigan Symphony Band performed this selection on the first tour to the Soviet Union. Audience participation is encouraged to keep up the tempo for “Radetzky March” by Strauss. This is an arrangement by Alfred Reed of the march known throughout the world from broadcasts of the annual Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra New Year’s Day concerts. An all time audience favorite, Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride,” will close the program with a “whinny” from Russ Sena’s trumpet and a “crack of the whip” from Jerard Sloan, percussion. Advance tickets for “Tis the Season” are available from band members, Laurel Park Wine Market and the Visitors Information Center. Tickets will be available at the door.

Holy Cross gallery show open through December 31 The Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross, 150 Melrose Avenue, is having its Members Gallery Show with artists Karen Johnston and Mary Ellen Wuerfel. The show runs through December 31 and can be seen daily Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays between the 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. service. The location of the show is in the upper hallway and an elevator, located at the back entrance of the church, will take you to it. Mary Ellen Wuerfel went to the University of Toledo in Toledo, OH, and worked as an accountant but she has always painted and has taken many art classes and workshops throughout those years. After moving to Landrum, SC, she joined the Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS). She had a show in Gallery I of the Tryon Fine Arts Center with her paintings, drawings and decorated furniture. At TPS she met Gene Apple, local sculptor, and he got her started sculpting in clay. She went on to take sculpture classes for two years at Converse College, Spartanburg, SC. Her sculptures are in homes in the United States, China, local galleries and have been in a number of juried shows. Wuerfel says, “My first love is working with the clay but painting has helped me be a better sculptor. I am a people watcher. People are

Painting by Karen Johnston
such an important part of my work whether I am painting or sculpting. Much of my work is whimsical, although some of it has taken on a serious nature. I do paint landscapes, flowers, birds, and animals, usually on furniture. Wood has such a depth and it makes the colors dance.” Karen Johnston received a B.A. from Marshall University, Huntington, WV, and taught special education for a number of years. She had a home-based craft business for 16 years while her children were young. Always loving arts and crafts, it was only natural when retiring with her husband, Ken, to Tryon that she would become involved with the local art organizations, including Tryon Painters and Sculptors and Tryon Arts and Crafts, serving
on both boards several times. Johnston continues taking art classes and workshops to broaden her spectrum of media. Working mostly in oil and mixed media, she most recently has added cold wax and oil to her love of experimentation. Her work has been accepted in a number of juried art shows and can be found in local and regional homes and galleries. Johnston says, “I love art for the sake of art. Learning new techniques and working with a variety of media is most exciting to me. Living in this area we are so blessed to have inspiration surrounding us every minute of every day. I will continue to explore different aspects of art media as long as it is challenging and fun. – article submitted
