Tryon depot restoration complete Open house Jan. 26 by Leah Justice

The historic former Tryon depot has been completely restored to an early-20th-century look. The public is invited to a grand opening celebration on Wednesday, Jan. 26 from 4-6 p.m. The event will include self-guided tours of the depot, a ribbon-cutting ceremony by the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce at 4:30 p.m, refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. The depot, located at 22 Depot Street in Tryon, was originally constructed in 1906 and is owned by the Town of Tryon. In May 2010, the town granted Andy Millard of Millard & Company a 20-year lease of $1 per year. In exchange, Millard agreed to pay for a complete renovation of the building. Millard was expected to spend (Continued on page 3)

Tryon eyes new business district, zoning amendments Public hearing Feb. 15 by Leah Justice

Tryon is looking at major changes to its commercial zoning districts, including establishing a new transitional business district (TBD) on both sides of downtown (see maps, p. 6). The town is also proposing to prohibit drive-through and drive-in

restaurants and buildings larger than 9,999 square feet in every zoning district. Churches, governmental offices and animal services in the Central Business District (CBD), the downtown area, are also prohibited in the proposal. Other proposed changes include rezoning the Stott’s Ford block back

an estimated $250,000 to restore the building. Tryon officials for years have expressed their desire to restore the building, but never had the funding. The depot renovation project is complete except for some outdoor lighting and landscaping. Millard said he plans to complete the landscaping when the weather improves. Millard & Company moved into the facility on Jan. 1 as planned. “It is a great place to have an office,” Millard said. “It’s centrally located but sort of out of the way. It’s mostly on one level, so it’s accessible. It’s right next to the Depot Garden. And it’s adjacent to a public parking lot.” The restoration began last summer, with contractors taking off the siding of the building to find that the 2-by-6-inch studs were treated with creosote, which meant there were no


traces of bugs in the walls. Contractors had to get down to the studs and paint them with several coats of Kilz paint to get rid of the odor. “It must have worked, because there is no smell at all now,” said Millard. “We really had to almost strip it down to the bare bones and start over,” Millard said. “But the bones were really good.” The project designer was BradyTrakas Architects, and the general contractor was Mike Karaman of Karaman Properties. A number of local contractors, workers and suppliers contributed to the successful completion of the project. Millard also said he appreciates Tryon’s employees. He said public works director Joel Burrell and his crew were very helpful in locating sewer lines and old infrastructure. The distinctive look of the building’s exterior is designed to be historically accurate, Millard (Continued on page 4)

Following a public input meeting in October, the town council directed the planning board to work on changes to the town’s commercial districts to provide better protection.

are proposed to include live/ work units and second floor apartments. Civic uses in the TBD are proposed to include art centers, libraries and auditoriums, theaters, assembly halls, concert halls or similar places of assembly, governmental office/other governmental use and public utility lines. Recreational permitted uses in the TBD include indoor movie theaters and parks. Banks, credit unions, savings and loan businesses, newspaper publishing and professional offices are among the office and services uses proposed for the TBD. Retail uses in the proposal include outdoor markets and

farmer’s markets, restaurants and taverns and retail uses less than 10,000 square feet. Accessory buildings and temporary uses will also be allowed in the TBD. No institutional, manufacturing or industrial uses will be allowed in the TBD as proposed. Automotive/boat service uses will also be prohibited in the TBD as proposed, but are allowed in GBD. The town is also considering a few minor text amendments, including lowering the commercial excavation and removal of dirt clause to 900 cubic yards from the current 1,200 cubic yards. If the Stott’s Ford block from Palmer Street to East Howard were rezoned to CBD, the car lot would be non-conforming, but it would be grandfathered, as

would all current uses that would become non-conforming. The Tryon Theatre, for example, is currently used as a church on Sundays, which would be a non-conforming use under the proposal. The church could continue to meet there, but no new churches would be allowed to move into the TBD. The proposed changes would be valid only for new businesses or when a current business changes uses. Stott’s Ford, for example, could sell the building to another car lot or business that is allowed in the CBD. Councilman Wim Woody asked if a McDonald’s would be allowed in Tryon if it doesn’t include a drive-through. Planning board chairman John Walters and code enforcer Joey Davis


answered “yes.” Councilman Doug Arbogast questioned why hotels were not included, since the town and others in the area have said the area needs more accommodations. Walters said the planning board will discuss the use of hotels, motels and inns. The planning board will meet on Feb. 10 prior to council’s public hearing to make some minor changes to the proposal. Once the first phase of the proposed amendments has been adopted, the planning board plans to begin work on further changes to the town’s zoning ordinance, including amendments to the town’s roadside protection overlay (RPO), landscaping requirements, design standards and signage.

Polk commissioners to hold retreat, meeting Jan. 24 Retreat at 9 a.m., meeting at 3 p.m. by Leah Justice

Polk County commissioners will hold their annual retreat on Monday, Jan. 24 and will also hold the first 3 p.m. meeting of the year. The retreat begins at 9 a.m. in the commissioner’s meeting room of the Womack building in Columbus. The county’s Jan. 10 meeting was canceled because of snow and was rescheduled for 3 p.m. immediately following the retreat. During the retreat, commissioners plan to discuss the financial status of Polk Schools and the county in the morning. Also on the morning’s agenda is a review by county engineer Dave Odom of the county’s two

water systems, with an opportunity to discuss future water line extensions and plans. The afternoon will be dedicated to hearing needs from department heads. Commissioners decided recently to change their meeting schedule. The new schedule includes meetings every first and third Monday. The meeting on the first Monday will be at 7 p.m., and the one on the third Monday will be at 3 p.m. Commissioners also decided to hold meetings occasionally in different townships within the county. March 7 will be the county’s first meeting to be held in a different township, with the next traveling meeting scheduled for June 6. The county plans to travel to a different township every three months.

Fishing and getting bait As I grew older, fishing and hunting became a big part of my life. Because I was living on the river and in the mountains, I guess this was not too unusual. I learned to use different kinds of bait – grasshoppers and worms. We would go out around the old barns with a mattock and dig for worms. This was a good place to find them if the ground wasn’t too dry. They made good bait, but were easy for the little fish to take off the hook. Of course, we were looking for the big one, maybe a big catfish. We knew the catfish stayed under the rocks, maybe to hide. They would rub spots on top of their head from wedging their head so far up under the rocks. We found out another reason for this. Under the rock there was a creature called by different names.

Saluda commissioners approved the $21,500 purchase of a 2011 Dodge Charger, despite financial concerns expressed by Mayor Fred Braisden. “We budgeted for one new vehicle, not two,” Braisden said. “We’re digging a financial hole here… But it’s your money to do that with.” Commissioner Johnnie Kinard originally brought the motion before the board of commissioners. He said the need is vital, with one vehicle wrecked and two others rapidly approaching 150,000 miles each. “What I’m worried about is what happens when one of these vehicles breaks down,” Kinard said. “We’ve got two vehicles now with 130-140,000 miles on them.” The department has paid out $5,000 in repair costs on its current fleet of cars since June 2010, Kinard said. And, he said that cost only continues to grow as vehicles age. The public safety budget includes $12,000 in police department contingency funds, with $24,000 remaining in capital outlay, finance director Ron Cole said. Kinard said the department would recoup $6,130 from the

Crown Victoria wrecked in an accident Oct. 6. The officer totaled the care while participating in a chase. When the car he was chasing wrecked on a dirt road, the officer drove off in a ditch. To repair the car would have cost more than it was worth, Kinard said. The $21,500 is a reduced price provided to law enforcement agencies. Kinard said if a regular person went out to purchase the vehicle it would cost them $32,500. He said some additional costs will come for installation of lights and radios, but he said those amounts are already accounted for in the budget; they will not be financed. Commissioners were hesitant but agreed to move forward with the purchase. “As much as it pains me to do so, I would vote for us to go ahead and buy it,” commissioner George Sweet said. Mayor Braisden wanted reassurance that the car wasn’t being purchased to allow each of the town’s four officers to take their cars home with them. Town officials voted late last year to allow officers to take their patrol vehicles home on a trial basis. Officials have not yet reviewed the practice. Kinard said it would be looked at again in the near future.

urges adults to get involved

Editor’s note: The following article was submitted by Robin Myer, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western North Carolina. With a new year comes renewed hope for the future, as individuals, families, communities and as a nation. The timing could not be better to Start Something™ to make a difference. As communities face limited resources to bolster key components of youth success – funding for schools, better training for teachers and more involvement from parents – research points to something known to work, at least as part of the solution – quality mentoring. Long-standing independent studies find children enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters’ long-term mentoring programs are more likely than their peers to earn higher grades and are less likely to skip classes and school days, factors linked to high school graduation. The same studies find children in these long-term quality mentoring programs are also more likely than their peers to

avoid violent and unhealthy behaviors and more likely to have positive relationships with their parents and others. A Harris Interactive Study of adult Little Brothers and Little Sisters found: • 90 percent said having a Big helped them to make better choices in life; • 62 percent reported achieving a higher level of success than youth not involved in BBBS; • 81 percent said their Big helped to change their perspective of their future. Mentors give youth a boost – with confidence, social skills and decision-making skills - to set goals and reach them. This month, is the 10th anniversary of National Mentoring Month. Big Brothers Big Sisters is urging adults to Start Something to help kids succeed in and out of school.

Steps to HOPE seeks to raise awareness of stalking January named National Stalking Awareness Month Call Anytime 828-894-6183

January is National Stalking Awareness Month, a time to focus on a crime that affects 3.4 million victims a year (www.ojp.usdoj. gov/bjs/pub/pdf/svus.pdf). 2x2 This year’s theme – “Stalking: f tfn Know It. Name It. Stop It.” – challenges the nation to fight this crime by learning more about it. is a crime in all 50 0tfn5fri - inDDStalking - page 15 states and the District of Columbia, yet many victims and criminal justice professionals underestimate its seriousness and impact. In one of five cases, stalkers use weapons to harm or threaten victims. According to the “American Journal of Public Health,” stalking is one of the significant risk factors for femicide (homicide of women) in abusive relationships. Victims suffer anxiety, social dysfunction, and severe depression at much higher rates than the general population, and many lose time from work or have to move as a result of their victimization. Stalking is difficult to recognize, investigate and prosecute. Unlike other crimes, stalking is not a single, easily identifi-

able crime but a series of acts, a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause that person fear. Stalking may take many forms, such as assaults, threats, vandalism, burglary or animal abuse, as well as unwanted cards, calls, gifts or visits. One in four victims reports that the stalker uses technology, such as computers, global positioning system devices or hidden cameras, to track the victim’s daily activities. Stalkers fit no standard psychological profile, and many stalkers follow their victims from one jurisdiction to another, making it difficult for authorities to investigate and prosecute their crimes. Communities that understand stalking, however, can support victims and combat the crime. "If more people learn to recognize stalking,” said Rachel Ramsey, executive director of Steps to HOPE, “we have a better chance to protect victims and prevent tragedies.” If you or anyone you know is being stalked, or to find out more about stalking, contact Steps to HOPE at 828-894-2340, or visit and click on the “Stalking: Know It.

Foothills student art exhibit in Tryon Art students from Polk and Landrum High Schools will be featured in an exhibit at the Upstairs Artspace in Tryon. The show will open Friday, Jan. 21 and run through Feb. 5, with a reception on Saturday, January 22 from 4 - 6 p.m. This unique exhibit will feature student work in a variety of media. Cathey Stoney, the art teacher from Landrum High School, said her students “are excited about the opportunity to display their work in a space as prominent as the Upstairs.” This is the first high school student exhibit in the present space and the first that the gallery has presented in a number of years. Jeff Thomas from PCHS stated that his students also were looking forward

to seeing their work in the venue. “Both schools produce work in differing mediums and I am looking forward to see how the students trade ideas with each other,” said Stoney. This is the first exhibit for 2011 at the Upstairs Artspace, and according to board president Margot Carter the gallery is pleased to start the year by giving these young artists an opportunity to show their work to the community. “Hopefully, this event can inspire some of these artists to continue producing art for the rest of their lives,” said Carter. The Upstairs Artspace is located at 49 S. Trade Street in Tryon. – article submitted

AARP Tax-Aide provides free tax assistance, preparation in Columbus Free tax assistance and preparation for low and moderate income individuals, with special attention to those age 60 and older, is available for taxpayers from AARP Tax-Aide. You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service. AARP Tax-Aide volunteers, trained in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service, will offer help with personal income tax returns at various locations around the state of North Carolina. Free tax assistance will be available every Wednesday beginning Feb. 2 through April 18

at the Polk County Public Library in Columbus by appointment only. The library is located at 1289 West Mills Street in Columbus. Call 828-894-8721, ext. 221, to make an appointment. “I really enjoy volunteering for AARP Tax-Aide. The taxpayer is so appreciative of having this resource,” said Ron Peters, AARP Tax-Aide coordinator for Columbus. “Tax law can often be confusing. AARP Tax-Aide volunteers can make the process of filling out tax returns a whole lot easier.” Peters added that he has met many new people through

volunteering. Last year, around 950 AARP Tax-Aide volunteers in North Carolina helped more than 68,636 people file their federal, state and local tax returns. The program is offered at approximately 118 sites in North Carolina including senior centers, libraries and other convenient locations. Other area locations include: Blue Ridge Mall, located at 1800 Four Seasons Boulevard in Hendersonville, N.C., Monday – Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (no appointment necessary); and Rutherford County Senior Center, located at

193 Callahan Koon Road in Spindale, N.C., every Friday (only by appointment). AARP Tax-Aide is a program of the AARP Foundation, offered in conjunction with the IRS. The AARP Foundation is AARP’s affiliated charity. Foundation programs provide security, protection and empowerment for older persons in need. Lowincome older workers receive the job training and placement they need to rejoin the workforce. Foundation programs are funded by grants, tax-deductible contributions and AARP. – article submitted

‘Sharing in the Community Christmas Social’ a success Recently, “Sharing in the Community Christmas Social” was held at the G. Riddle Banquet Hall of the Zion Grove A.M.E. Zion Church. Although the event had to be rescheduled because of weather conditions, it set the tone for an even more festive occasion. During this time of economic hardship, the event provided an opportunity to share the true meaning of Christmas with those who are alone during the holidays, have limited funds or just need to know someone cares. The Christmas social, which was sponsored by the Unity in the Community Organization, was made possible by the Polk County Community Foundation 2010 Seasonal Assistance Grant. The event attracted more than 100 senior citizens and those in need. The local families were served by volunteers and treated to live entertainment. The meal was catered (Mt. View BBQ & Deli of Columbus) and each family left with a fruit basket and/or gift basket. The program was led by the Rev. Arnie Twitty, pastor of the Green Creek Missionary Baptist Church, who served as the master of ceremony. Rev. Keith Knox, pastor of the Garrison Chapel Baptist Church in Tryon, gave a speech about his “Most Memorable Christmas.” The crowd was moved by B.J. Mosley, a 14-year-old from Gastonia, N.C., who recited a poem titled “Almost.” Their appreciation was reflected in the standing ovation. The live

music was provided by the R.R. Staley Ensemble and mime dancing was performed by Chad Davis. One of the highlights of the evening was the fun and games segment which required audience participation. The participants showed they really were kids at heart. As their names were called, each approached the stage area to select from an assortment of more than 125 wrapped gifts, gift baskets, fruit baskets and gift bags. Rev. Phil Forney, Terry Hines, Roy Miller, Michelle Miller, Linda Hines, Terri Palmer, Cassandra Staley and Rev. Rob Staley assisted with the Christmas social. All remaining gifts were given to local community leaders and pastors to distribute to needy and senior citizens in the community. – article submitted

Orchestra’s ‘Romantic Classics’ concert features Grammy winner The Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra and music director Sarah Ioannides present their fourth masterworks concert of the season on Saturday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. The Twichell Auditorium performance features Grammy winner Sara Sant’Ambrogio on cello for Tchaikovsky’s “Rococo Variations.” Also included in the evening are Schumann’s “Symphony No. 2 in C major” and the premiere of “The Search for Stephanie Thayn,” an original piece by Converse College professor Dr. David Berry. The career of Sant’Ambrogio began when she won the bronze medal at the 1986 International Tchaikovsky Violoncello Competition in Moscow. Since then she has appeared with the Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, St. Louis, San Francisco and Seattle orchestras, in addition to numerous international engagements. But Sant’Ambrogio is perhaps best known as one third of the Eroica Trio, with whom she has recorded eight CDs, toured widely and garnered numerous Grammy nominations. As a soloist, she won a Grammy for best chamber music performance for Bernstein “Arias and Barcarolles.”

Along with having a Grammy-winning guest artist, the Jan. 22 Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra performance also has another feather in its cap: an original piece by a living, local composer. Dr. David Berry, professor of music at Converse College, fell in love with schoolmate Stephanie Thayn at age nine. Years later on a return visit to his old hometown in Maryland, he tried to find Thayn or learn of her whereabouts. The resulting piece puts that quest to music, paying homage to opera overtures by Rossini and Berlioz. The evening’s theme of love (or perhaps love lost) is extended with Schumann’s “Symphony No. 2.” Schumann is one of the most popular composers of the Romantic era, and his complicated life – filled with scandalous relationships, a debilitating hand injury, and a failed suicide attempt – pays tribute to the drama of the times. “Symphony No. 2” consists of four movements, each with a unique personality. General admission tickets can be purchased through the Twichell Auditorium Box Office at 864-596-9725. To learn more, visit – article submitted

Women especially are at risk for bone loss if body fat dip too low, because they can’t produce enough estrogen, which is involved in the formation of bone. Dipping to deep into body fat levels is dangerous too, because fat cushions our internal organs, thereby protecting them.

Comparing senior housing options Dear Savvy Senior, Can you explain the different types of senior housing options, and recommend some good resources for locating and choosing one? My 84-year-old mother took a nasty fall last month in her home and thinks it may be time to check out some senior facilities. Need Some Help Dear Need, There’s a wide array of housing options available to seniors today, but what’s available to your mom will depend on her location, needs and finances. Here are some tips to help you get started. Get assessed To help you find the right type of senior housing for your mom, your first step is to assess her financial and physical situation. What can she afford? How is her health and memory? Does she need help with daily living chores? A resource that can help you with this is the Care Interpreter (see v2.tlchoices. com – it requires registration), a free online tool that asks a few questions and matches her with the most suitable living situation. If you feel you need some additional help, consider hiring a geriatric care professional (see who can give your mom a thorough evaluation for around $300 to $800, and recommend some appropriate housing options in the area. Depending on your mom’s situation, here are her options. Independent living If your mom is in relatively good health and is self-sufficient, “independent living communities” are a good place to start. Typically available to people over age 55, this type of senior housing is usually apartments or town homes that

Savvy Senior are fully functional. In addition, many of these communities also Autoamenities CleAning & WAxing offer such as meals served in a common dining area, housekeeping, transportation 828-817-1568 and a variety of social activities. Pick Up & Delivery To locate independent living or retirement communities, contact 1x1 your area agency on aging. Call 800-677-1116, or 2/19-1/28/11 to get visitF, sPot-035011 your local number. Most of these communities are privatepay only, and run anywhere from $1,000 to over $4,000 per month. If that’s too steep, another option to check out is “senior apartments,” which are often subsidized by HUD for lower income seniors. You can also locate these through your local housing authority (see pihforseniors or call 800-9552232 for contact information) or you can do a search online at Needs some help If your mom needs some help with daily living activities, you’ll need to look into “assisted living facilities.” These types of facilities provide personal care (bathing, dressing, eating and going to the bathroom) when needed, as well as meals, housekeeping, transportation, social activities and medication management. Some facilities also offer special care units for residents with dementia. Costs for this type of care is usually between $2,500 and $6,000 per month, and most facilities only accept private-pay or long-term care insurance. Another similar, but less expensive option to inquire about is “board and care homes.” These offer many of the same services as assisted living facilities, but in a much smaller

home setting. Your area aging agency is again your best resource for finding these facilities, or try online resources like After you locate a few, check them out by calling your local ombudsman – the government official who investigates long-term care facilities – and ask whether there have been complaints. See, or call 800-6771116 for contact information. Needs more help If your mom is in need of ongoing medical care, you may need to check out local “nursing homes” that provide skilled nursing care. To find one, Medicare offers a great Nursing Home Compare tool ( that lets you search and compare facilities in your area. If you want more information on a particular nursing home contact your local ombudsman, or for a fee you can purchase detailed reports through companies like and carescout. com. Combo housing Another form of senior housing you should know about is “continuing-care retirement communities” (CCRCs). This is a nice option because it provides all levels of senior housing, services and care in one convenient location, but CCRCs are expensive typically requiring a hefty buy-in or entrance fee, along with on-going monthly service fees. For more information see carf. org/aging. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. How CAn A gift bE A ProbLEM? Q. Can a gift cause unanticipated problems for the recipient? a. sometimes we are asked to draft wills or trusts to “leave my estate to my sister Joan” or “$10,000 to my niece, Mary.” this may not be the wisest thing to do particularly if the recipient is elderly or otherwise receiving governmental assistance. Your gift might disqualify them for benefits or just go to the nursing home for payment for their care. When making a bequest to a person who is or soon will be over 65, it is better to condition the gift on the recipient not residing in a nursing home. We also leave large gifts to the elderly in a special Medicaid trust that will terminate if the elderly or “special needs” recipient permanently resides in a nursing home. Conditioning gifts in this way insures the recipient benefits from it. For answers on this or other estate planning issues call (828) 696-1811.

Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP) recently awarded $1,800 in minigrants to seven area schools. The grants will fund farm field trips for students in preschool through high school this spring and fall. “Authentic farm experiences like farm field trips build positive associations with fresh, local food and highlight farmers as important role models,” said Molly Nicholie, ASAP’s Growing Minds Farm to School program coordinator. However, “Field trips are often difficult for schools to implement because funding is a limiting factor,” Nicholie notes, adding, “ASAP is proud to offer these funds and help make positive on-farm experiences possible.” Schools starting the new year off with mini-grants are: Cullowhee Valley School (Jackson County), TC Roberson Progressive Education Program
