cilman Wim Woody. He said he doesn’t smoke and doesn’t recommend smoking, but the park is outside. Arbogast asked how the town would enforce such a ban and said he would be opposed because of the difficulty of enforcing it. North Carolina passed legislation last year that prohibits smoking in restaurants across the state. Enforcement of the smoking ban in restaurants is done by counties, Tryon Town Manager Justin Hembree said. jbtrees - page 10

Hembree said he is not sure a local government can ban smoking in an outside area, but he said the town could designate areas for smoking. Tryon councilman Roy Miller said he wouldn’t be opposed to designating certain areas at Harmon Field for smoking. Council members also said if the town regulates smoking at Harmon Field, it may need to do so at all its parks. If the town bans smoking or designates areas for smoking at Harmon Field and/or other parks, it would need to amend its code to do so, which would be a town council action.

Polk County Middle School sixth graders celebrated a late Veterans Day with a special visit from Sergeant Eric Halford. Students gathered in the auditorium to meet Halford while he was home on leave from Afghanistan. Each sixth - grade classroom was presented a journal in which they will write letters and draw pictures for Halford and those serving with him. The journals will be sent to Afghanistan later in the year. Students in Mrs. Koone’s language arts class also wrote letters to send. Pictured above is Mason Denton with Halford. Sandra Halford, Eric’s mother, is in the back. (photo submitted by C. Scherping)

Lady Cards take down Spartanburg Christian, 32-24 by Joey Millwood

The Landrum girls’ basketball team handled business against Spartanburg Christian Academy in the first round of the Battle at the Border Shootout in Landrum on Tuesday night. The Lady Cardinals played lockdown defense in the second half to come back for a 32-24 victory. Landrum went into the locker rooms at the half down 21-19 and the main topic of conversation was defense. “(The girls) felt like we could match them and put some pressure on them,” Landrum coach Roy Parton said. “We never got rattled and we kept plugging.” The Lady Cardinals came out in the second half motivated. Led by birthday girls Skylar Henderson and Amber Whiteside, the Lady Cardinals knew what they had to do.

“(The girls) felt like we could match them and put some pressure on them. We never got rattled and we kept plugging.” -- Cardinals coach Roy Parton

“We knew we were down so we had to get back at it,” Henderson said. Get back at it is what they did. The Lady Cardinals held the Lady Warriors to just one basket and three points for the entire second half. Landrum was led by Jordan Jenkins. The senior center scored 14 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to pad her double-double average for the season.

Red-breasted Nuthatches move to Blue Ridge As the fall and winter progress, birds from colder climes up north begin to move further south. These include White-throated Sparrows, Dark-eyed Junco, and a host of winter sparrows and finches. Many of these species are very regular in their southbound movements, while others are known as irruptive migrants. In our area of Western North Carolina the most wellknown of these have to be Pine Siskins and Purple Finches. Both of these species are very unreliable by Simon in their flights Thompson and can be common or absent depending on the year. This southbound push of birds is mostly dependent on the food supply in the north. Another species that reacts to the sea-

The Bird Box

sonal change and the shortening food supply is the Red-breasted Nuthatch. This smaller and more colorful cousin of our familiar Whitebreasted Nuthatch breeds at higher elevations throughout the Blue Ridge at the junction of the northern hardwoods and sprucefir ecosystems. As you take a walk at this elevation during the appropriate season, you can often hear the slow “beep, beep, beep” of the Red-breasted Nuthatch, a sound I liken to the slow reversal notes of a very small forklift truck! This year has seen a very large push of these coniferous loving birds down into the southern states from across their huge Canadian and northern forests range. Many will spend the winter in the lowlands of the



Mid-Atlantic States, but others will move even further south into Florida. There is even a well-documented record of a Red-breasted Nuthatch in a Norfolk woodland in the east of England. How it got that far is open to discussion, but this demonstrates the migratory ability of this small bird. Red-breasted Nuthatches are easily distinguished from the larger White-breasted Nuthatch by their smaller size, reddishbrown underparts and a white supercilium that stretches above the eye. They also have a black eye-line and cap, and gray upperparts. Their distinctive call notes are also very different from both the White-breasted and Brownheaded Nuthatches. The latter species is quite common in our area of the foothills where it prefers stands of Virginia and White Pines throughout Polk County.


There are usually easy to see around the main building at FENCE. Brown-headed Nuthatches are smaller than both of the other nuthatches, have brown heads and have a very distinctive “squeaky toy” vocalization. All three nuthatches regularly visit bird feeders to feed on sunflower seeds and this winter it may be possible to see all three species at the same time – always an enjoyable sighting of these very charismatic birds. Simon Thompson has lived in WNC for the past 16 years. He owns and operates his own birding tour company, Ventures Birding Tours. WWW.birdventures.com He and Chris also own and operate the Asheville Wild Birds Unlimited Store.

Friendship Council, TFAC’s to present ‘We Are the Dream’ Jan. 14, 15 “We Are the Dream: The Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.,” a 45-minute dramatic production with music, will be presented Jan. 14 and 15 as a collaboration between Tryon Fine Arts Center and Thermal Belt Friendship Council. A cast of 21 North and South Carolinians unite to bring to life the story of one man and his dream for all of us. People playing the roles of students and teacher narrate this story, which covers events in the civil rights movement from 1955 to 1968. The teacher is played by Mary Meyers, and her students are Luke Umphlett, Regina Dotts, Eric Harrelson, Savanna McBurnett and Ryan Fox. Reactions to King’s peaceful resistance movement are demonstrated by a young girl named Julia played by Hannah Brown. Julia as a grown woman is played by Tamieea Brown, and her family is played by Jonai Miller and Marshall Lipscomb. The play explores attitudes and reactions toward segregation. Ryan Fox plays Martin Luther

King Jr. as a boy with Fred Counts in the role of his father, Martin Luther King Sr., and Michelle Miller as his mother, Alberta. There are several characters whose actions represent the segregationist attitudes which led to the civil rights movement. Emily Brooks plays the mother who won’t allow her son to play with Martin Jr. Brooks also plays a shoe clerk who explains in what part of the store Martin’s family can be served. National events are also shown through short vignettes that show the power of the media in the 1960s. John Calure plays the TV announcer examining the situation and Jake Gilbert plays the southern sheriff who wants to keep things the way they are. Rosa Parks is played by Sandy McDowell and the bus driver is played by Ingrid TartRemington. Joseph McNeill, one of the students involved in the Woolworth sit-ins in Greensboro, is played by Andrew Suber


Brown, and the waitress is played by Petra Harrelson. Vivian Jones, one of the first black students to attend the University of Alabama, is played by Sandy McDowell with John Calure playing Governor George Wallace. Roy Miller plays Martin Luther King Jr. as an adult and the part of Coretta Scott King is played by Michelle Miller. The scenes in this 45-minute presentation are emphasized and enhanced with gospel music sung by the Friendship Council Unity Choir, directed by Dr. Joseph Fox and Peggy Alt, with accompaniment on the piano by Joy Gardner. “We Are the Dream” will be performed Friday, Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 15 at 2 p.m. on the Veh Stage at Tryon Fine Arts Center. Admission is free, with donations accepted. A reception will follow the Saturday performance. Call director Marianne Carruth for more information at 828-859-8322, ext. 213. – article submitted
