breaking into one residence inside the Tryon city limits where jewelry was stolen. Officials say they also know of two other incidents in the Gillette Woods area outside of the Tryon city limits. The Lake Lanier area and Dug Hill Road, both located in Greenville County, S.C., perhaps had the most incidents in the case. Attempts to contact an officer with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office to know the exact number of homes involved were unsuccessful as of press time. Victim Linda Clark said on Feb. 22 she was away from her residence between the hours of around noon to 5 p.m. She said her wedding ring, two gold chains and her husband’s prescription medication were stolen. “I didn’t realize anything had happened until the next day,” said Clark.

She said they took prescription medication from her husband, but instead of taking the whole bottle, they just took about half the pills out. She said she knows they were stolen because the prescription had just been filled a couple days prior and she had cleared off the counter before she left. She said something was on the counter that would have had to be moved to get to the cabinet. Chief Arrowood said several victims did not realize their homes had been broken into until later because of the manner in which the suspects robbed homes. The crimes occurred during the day when no one was home. The homes were left seemingly untouched. Arrowood said some victims reported one of the subjects came to their door days before the robbery was discovered and asked for directions. Neighbors began talking about

the break-ins, Arrowood said, and a description of a suspicious vehicle was determined. Arrowood said neighbors came up with a silver Honda with different license plates, from California. He said one victim knew Kessler and ran his name in pawn shops and some of the stolen items were discovered. Arrowood said area residents had a big part in solving the case.

“The neighbors called each other and between Dep. Cordell in Greenville County and the neighbors, they came up with a suspect,” Arrowood said. Kessler is being held at the Greenville County Detention Center under over $55,000 in bonds. Byrd is being held at the Henderson County Detention Facility under a $15,500 bond.

Leland Fortenberry (Paula) of Campobello and Earl Gene Fortenberry (Joyce) of Mill Spring, and three daughters, Patricia Lawson (Ronnie) of Converse, S.C.; Carolyn Byers (Steve) of Mill Spring and Helen Tucker of Saluda. Also surviving are six sisters, Barbara Clontz of Columbus; Nettie Lou Thompson of Inman, S.C.; Glenda Silvey of Inman, S.C.; Kathy Hall of Landrum; Betty Short of Lenoir, N.C., and Nola Champion of Saluda; as well as two brothers, Albert Laughter of Green Creek and

She was preceded in death by two daughters, Sally Louise Fortenberry and Shirley Garland; two brothers, Jerry Laughter and Edwin Laughter; one sister, Evelyn Robertson, and a grandson, Robert Earl Fortenberry.

owner, and interact with Polk County Travel & Tourism, as the landlord of a seasonal rental house. I encourage their efforts to remain as an independent group, separate from the chamber of commerce. In Aiken, S.C., the Greater Aiken Chamber of Commerce

operated a tourism initiative for a time, but realizing inevitable conflict of interests, the chamber stepped away from Tourism. Now, Aiken County as well as the cities of Aiken and N. Augusta, each has their own tourism department. Perhaps even more importantly, it is possible, and not unlikely, for a local chamber of commerce, in response to national business trends and U.S. Chamber of Commerce directives, to lose sight of delicate local issues, which should guide in the protection of an area such as Polk County. Polk County’s unique, unspoiled countryside, and quaint villages continue to draw property owners such as my own

family, who continues in the fifth generation to invest and spend time in the Saluda area, as well as repeat “visitors” who appreciate the charm of the area. Depending on “tourism” dollars leaves any area vulnerable to over development, and without stakeholder representation, it is too easy to lose the goose that laid golden egg. As a Polk County property owner, who would not be inclined to join the chamber of commerce, I appreciate having Polk County Travel & Tourism at the helm. I believe their effort toward “eco-tourism,” is the safest way to draw the right visitors to Polk County. –– Jenne Stoker

Hanukkah, or Chanukah, is a Jewish celebration that is also known as the Festival of Lights. Hanukkah is an eight-day celebration, most notably marked with the lighting of the menorah. The menorah is a candleholder that holds nine candles; the main eight candles and a “helper” candle called a shamash, which is used to light all eight candles. This tradition is derived from a story found in the Talmud about a man named Judas Maccabaeus, or Judah Maccabee. Around 170 B.C., the ruler Epiphanes tried to force the Greek gods upon the Jews.

The NaTioNal aeroNaTics aNd space admiNisTraTioN

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, was formed in 1958. Its mission was to research and test aeronautics, to explore space, to study the Earth and the solar system, and to create new technologies. These technologies include the modern space shuttle, communications and weather-monitoring satellites that are now in orbit around Earth, as well as many other things that have made life on Earth easier. The first major space exploration project was called the Mercury project, which established that space flight was safe for humans. In 1961, Alan Shepard was the first American, and the second man, to enter space. The next space mission was the Gemini project, followed by the great Apollo missions, which included Apollo 11. This is the mission that landed the first man on the moon in 1969. Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon, and his crew member, Buzz Aldrin, was the second man out of the shuttle. The Apollo 13 mission, where a faulty oxygen tank almost cost the lives of the three astronauts, was made into a major motion picture. Since the early days of NASA, many discoveries about the Earth and space have been made. Robotic spacecrafts, or deep-space probes, have been sent to explore the solar system. On March 18, 2011, the probe Messenger is scheduled to arrive in Mercury’s orbit. NASA’s headquarters are located in Washington, D.C. All launches into space are made at Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island, Florida, just north of Cape Canaveral. This center was named us American after President John F. Kennedy, who challenged the United States to have a man on the moon by the end of the 1960’s; President Kennedy’s dream became a reality. below.

Polk softball chalks up season’s second win at Asheville, 6-1 by Daniel Hecht

The Lady Wolverines took their show on the road for the first time this season, heading up I-26 to square off against Asheville High on Thursday, March 3. Despite the chill of a late winter mountain afternoon, Polk’s bats stayed hot, and Coach Jeff Wilson’s squad handed the Lady Cougars

their first loss of the year in the non-conference contest. The ladies of Polk drew blood in four different innings, led by Amber Lynch, who went 2 for 3 and scored twice on the afternoon. Cavin Richards, Brittany Jones, Kara Garvin and Jamie Hrobak each contributed a hit to the welldistributed Wolverine offensive

attack, and leadoff hitter Shayln Brown worked Asheville, pitching for two walks and scoring a run as well. Ace hurler Hrobak notched her second win of the season and earned her 31st career victory for Polk County, giving up no walks and allowing just two hits in another impressive complete game out-

ing. The 12-strikeout performance brought her season total to 28, as opponents continue to struggle to solve the dominant junior pitcher. The Lady Wolverines played host to unbeaten Pisgah High on Monday afternoon, March 7. The Lady Bears routed AC Reynolds in their season opener by a score of 11-3.

Concert to benefit Rotary Club of Tryon scholarships May 1 Gorden Threlfall, chairman of the Rotary Club of Tryon Scholarship Committee, announces that ticket sales for the Community Chorus Spring Concert will benefit the five college scholarships awarded each year. The concert will be given Sunday, May 1 at Polk County High School. Two of the scholarships, totaling $6,000 ($1,500 per year), are awarded to graduating seniors at Polk County High School who are beginning a four-year college program. Two other scholarships are awarded to Polk County High School seniors beginning a two-year college program. One pays $2,500 ($1,250 per year) and the other pays $1,200 ($600 per year). The Frank Ortiz Service Above Self Award is for $1,000. Two of the recent scholarship recipients have given an update to let the community know how they are benefiting from the Rotary scholarships they received. Evan Fitch is the son of Robert and Theresa Fitch and is a student at UNC-Chapel Hill. He received his initial scholarship in 2010 from Rotary Club of Tryon. Evan says he is grateful for the $1,500 scholarship he received. He is currently active in extracurricular activities such as playing intramural soccer and participating in fundraisers such as the UNC Dance Marathon, which benefitted UNC Children’s Hospital. In addition to his studies, Evan has been able to cultivate a love for the arts by attending concerts, art shows, films and plays. He said he looks forward to the day when he can serve

in his own local Rotary Club and give scholarships to other young students. Evan’s sister, Maggie, received her initial scholarship in 2008 and she wrote to give information about some of her interests and accomplishments over the last three years. Since her arrival at UNC, she has benefitted from the Rotary Club of Tryon’s David A. Wells Memorial Scholarship. She said, “Coming from our small, tight-knit community in Polk County, I have been pleasantly surprised to find myself wholly immersed in a whirling confluence of cultures and communities, the diversity of which surpasses anything I had previously experienced.” She has been able to participate in one of two women’s club soccer teams on campus (the Heels) since her freshman year. She is now co-president of her team. The Heels compete nearly every weekend against teams from North Carolina and surrounding states. She has also become involved in the Newman Catholic Student Center. Through her work at the Newman Center she joined her friends in ministering to the mentally handicapped orphans of Jamaica’s Mustard Seed Community (Montego Bay) and the homeless of Washington, D.C. In the spring of 2010, Maggie took the opportunity to study abroad in Costa Rica. She spent five months living and learning with her now-beloved host family and acquiring a more critical perspective of American culture and ideas in her Spanish-taught classes at the Universidad Nacional in

Heredia. After returning from Costa Rica, she began volunteering on a regular basis with a nearby Spanish-speaking community and has added a Spanish major. This spring she will return to Central America (Honduras) as part of a Habitat for Humanity team that will construct houses in a region where extreme poverty bars access to decent living conditions for many families. In part because of the Rotary Club of Tryon, Maggie said she has been afforded the chance to expand her mind, open herself to transformative relationships with God, friends, classmates and mentors and lead others to begin their own self-discovery and self-growth. Maggie concluded her update with these words: “I cannot thank you enough. Que Dios les bendiga. (May

Maggie Fitch

God bless you.)” The spring concert will be held on May 1. The concert will be provided by up to 80 singers from Polk and Rutherford counties and Upstate South Carolina while helping provide scholarships for area youth. – article submitted

Hands of Change, a group of Polk County School students who work on service projects in the area, recently came to Pearsons Falls to pick up wood for delivery to Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry. The Tryon Garden Club, the owners and operators of Pearson’s Falls, donated the wood to Outreach. This is just one example of the manner in which these students work on service projects within Polk County organizations as well as work with the assisted living centers. Hands of Change meets Thursday afternoons when Polk County schools are in session. Possible service sites include the American Red Cross, FENCE, Harmon Field, White Oak Assisted Living Center, Bridge Wood House, Pacolet Nature Conservancy and others. Past service projects of Hands of Change include painting, yard work, passing out flyers, trail maintenance and clean up, reading and social activities with residents at assisted living centers. – article submitted
