Fire destroys Smith Dairy Road home Bank fund set up to help residents by Samantha Hurst

Here’s a list of upcoming meetings and events for area nonprofit community and governmental organizations:

A calm Sunday morning took a devastating turn for Columbus resident Sherry Lance March 13.

Lance said she returned from grabbing breakfast at McDonald’s to the sight of her home on Smith Dairy Road billowing with smoke and surrounded by fire engines. At that moment, Lance was on the phone with her fiancé, who was at work.

“I was pulling up to the house and I saw all the fire trucks and the smoke. My fiancé was on the phone and I just started screaming, ‘Get home, get home, get home; the house is on fire,’” Lance said. (Continued on page 3)

with one count each of receiving stolen goods over $2,000 in value. The suspects were arrested shortly after midnight yesterday, Monday, March 14, at the residence of Powell and Sloboda at 103 Shady Lane in Landrum. Just after 11 p.m. on March 4, 2011, according to the police report, a 78-year-old Landrum resident answered the door to a female who asked to use his telephone because her car had broken down. After the victim pointed out where the phone was located and turned the television volume down, “a white male came in and grabbed [the victim] from behind and knocked him to the floor, holding him there against his will and restricting him from moving,” says the

Columbus Assistant Chief Geoffrey Tennant said the department was dispatched to the fire at 10:51 a.m. He said Chief Bobby Arledge arrived first on the scene in his private vehicle, followed by the initial apparatus at 11:04 a.m. “The home was fully involved once we arrived on the scene with heavy smoke and flames coming through the roof,” Tennant said.

report. The female took watches, pins and coins from various areas of the house and medicine from the bathroom that belonged to the victim’s late wife, according to the police report. Both suspects were allegedly wearing bandanas and gloves. The female suspect was wearing her bandana on her hair until after she entered the house when she pulled it over her face, according to the police report. After the female suspect took items from different rooms of the house, the suspects made the victim go into the back bedroom and told him to sit on the bed, according to the police report. The report said the suspects went into another bedroom and stole two knives, then told the victim to stay in the bedroom and ran out of the house in an unknown direction.

Landrum Police Chief Bruce Shelnut said some stolen items have already been recovered and others are in the process of being recovered. “I’ve been here since 1992 and I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Shelnut. Shelnut said the Spartanburg County Sheriff ’s Office has been very helpful in assisting Landrum with the investigation. “Police officers and sheriff’s

investigators have been working non-stop since this crime was first reported, gathering information, collecting evidence and identifying these suspects as the ones responsible for this crime,” stated a press release sent from the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office. All four suspects were still being held in the Spartanburg County detention center as of Monday afternoon, March 14.

Chamber position statement regarding travel and tourism Editor’s note: This is the second half of a statement submitted by the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce to the Polk County Board of Commissioners. The first half appeared in the Wednesday, March 9 Bulletin. Support for a new hotel You should know that the chamber board is on record as being in favor of bringing a modern middle-market hotel—such as a Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express—to the area, to be located off I-26 at either the Columbus or Landrum exit. The reason for this is simple: many Polk County visitors would rather stay in a hotel than a bed and breakfast. The Days Inn in Columbus (a chamber member) fills up quickly during the many local events. That is why two Flat Rock hotels, the Holiday Inn Express and

moved in with the couple about a week ago, Lance said. “The whole house went quick,” Lance said. “It’s a total burnout… there is nothing left but a shell. We really don’t know what we are going to do. We need help.” Assisting the Columbus Fire Department with the blaze were Green Creek, Mill Spring and Tryon Fire Departments, as well as Polk County EMS and the North Carolina State Highway Patrol. Tennant said protocol in Polk County mandates the dispatch of a minimum of three departments in the case of a possible structure fire. He said Columbus requested mutual aid beyond that number because of the intensity of the fire. “We had 13 folks on scene, I’m not sure how many showed up from the other two departments but our guys were getting jbtrees - page 10

Mountain Inn & Suites, joined our chamber: they receive a lot of business from people who visit Polk County. Those visitors would prefer to stay here in Polk County but end up staying in Flat Rock because that’s the nearest place where they can find the accommodations they seek. If they wanted to stay in a B&B, they would; but instead they drive 20 minutes up the interstate to stay in a hotel. Obviously, these folks shop and eat in Henderson County, not Polk County. It is no exaggeration to say that we are losing millions in potential business each year because of this phenomenon. A new hotel would allow those visitors—and the dollars they spend—to stay here, where they would prefer to stay and where (Continued on page 5)

whipped,” he said. “They were getting fatigued and having to spend time in the rehab center with EMS to rehydrate.” Tennant said they made the initial attack with a 3-inch line, which requires a minimum of four fire fighters. He said holding that line against an intense fire can wear even the best fire fighter out. “Certainly there was a lot of heavy smoke to deal with, which indicated to us that the fire had probably smoldered inside before it broke through,” he said. Fire fighters brought the blaze under control at 11:34 a.m. Lance and her fiancé have received assistance from the Polk County Red Cross, but she said they have lost everything and are in dire need of help. Mountain 1st Bank in Columbus currently has a fund set up for the family for anyone interested in making a donation. Lance can be reached at 828748-0630.

we need them. We do not believe that a new hotel would necessarily pose a threat to B&Bs—quite the opposite. A hotel would allow Polk County to become more of a destination, which could attract more visitors—many of whom would choose to stay in a B&B. Saluda Grade Trail We also support the Saluda Grade Trail initiative, which has the potential to bring many enthusiastic visitors to our community on an ongoing basis; we believe that many of these visitors would want to stay in an inn or B&B.

The uniqueness of Saluda We recognize that Saluda is a special place, largely detached

Equestrian events One criticism that has been leveled against the chamber involves our support for the equestrian community. Many people do not realize that equestrian events benefit our entire local economy—and have the potential

to benefit it in a much bigger way. Consider the following: This year there will be 51 horse shows in Polk County, as well as numerous clinics, lectures and other events. These events bring a steady stream of visitors—thousands of them— who spend money here. Each horse brings an average of three visitors, each of whom has been shown to spend an average of $187 per day during their visit. (Again, we are missing out on a large proportion of these visitors’ dollars because of the absence of modern hotel.) Because of the nature of these events, they provide a consistent influx of millions of dollars into the local economy while having no negative impact on residents’ daily lives. Why would we not want to promote such a powerful economic driver?

from the rest of Polk County both geographically and as a unique tourist destination. While its tourist businesses benefit from the BBQ festival and would stand to benefit greatly from the Saluda Grade Trail, Saluda requires an approach that is specialized for them. We would expect to work closely with tourism-related businesses to develop such an approach. A vision for the future We hope that you begin to see the broad shape of our vision for the Carolina Foothills. Like most Polk County residents, we want to preserve those qualities we all love, but we recognize the need for an expanding economy that allows us to make a living without opening the floodgates for urban sprawl. A thriving tourism industry would allow us to protect the rural character of our community while sharing it with those who visit, spend, and return home.



Does the chamber of commerce believe we could handle the task of travel and tourism? You bet we do. Our board members have a high level of expertise in virtually every aspect of business and we could bring a fresh approach to travel and tourism. We are a positive organization; we seek a better future for our area. These issues are not easy, but they must be addressed if we are to move forward. And move forward we must. Going backward—or even remaining in place—is not an option. We did not seek out this task, but we are up to it should it come to pass. And we would strive to handle it in a way that would serve the long term overall best interest of Polk County, its businesses, and its people. Once we have agreed upon a general outline of our plan for managing travel and tourism, we will communicate that outline in a separate document.

Welcome to the Hanukkah & Kwanzaa Featuring:

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.

Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated every year on March 17. This holiday celebrates the memory and life of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick. Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations have been going on for hundreds and hundreds of years in Ireland, where it is considered a religious holiday. It has become a popular holiday even among those who do not celebrate its Christian meaning. In 1762, the first Saint Patrick’s Day parade was held in New York City. The holiday has become known for the parades, as well as other traditions, such as wearing green (in order not to be pinched). Saint Patrick, or Patricius, was born in Britain in the early 400’s A.D. as Maewyn Succat. (Succat took the name Patricius later in life when he entered a monastery.) As a young man he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland where he was forced into slavery. According to his own autobiography, The Confessio, he escaped when he was 22. It was at this time that he entered the monastery. After he left the monastery, he returned to Ireland as a missionary. He encountered some conflict with the local authority, The High King of Tare, but he later came to an agreement with the King and was allowed to freely spread his message of Christianity. Eventually, almost all of Ireland would convert from Druid paganism to Christianity. For this reason, Patricius was made a Saint. Legend has it that Saint Patrick died on March 17, 461 A.D. It was for this reason that March 17 was marked as a religious holiday honoring Saint Patrick. Hidden Words: Fnd the words hidden in the puzzle below.

Lady Wolverines hammer Hunter Huss on soccer field by Jordan DeVere

The Lady Wolverines JV and varsity soccer teams played host to Hunter Huss at the middle school on Friday, March 11. Both Polk teams dominated their opponents, with JV winning 7-0 and varsity winning 5-0. The Wolverine’s JV girls set the tone for the night as they jumped out to a quick lead. Once they had broken through Huss defense for their first goal, the floodgates opened and Polk ran the Huss team off the field with a 7-0 blowout. Jordan Geer #15 scored as time expired to put a cap on the game for the JV squad. Polk’s varsity girls kept up the pressure on Huss. They held the ball in their opponent’s side

of the field for the majority of the first half. Brittany Phipps eventually broke through to score the first of her two goals midway through the first half. Richie Sciuva and Ellese Cash also got in on the scoring, each adding one before the half ended. At halftime Polk had a commanding 3-0 lead. In the second half, the Wolverines continued their scoring frenzy, with Phipps adding her second goal and freshman Lyric Flood also scoring to seal a dominant victory for the Wolverines. This was a break through game for the offense, but Polk’s defense and keeper also played well, holding Huss to few scoring opportunities.

Humane Society reminds community to spay or neuter pet Spring is in the air, and the kittens and puppies will soon follow if you are not prepared. Four to five million animals are destroyed in America’s animal shelters each year. More than 600 unwanted puppies and kittens came to the Foothills Humane Society’s Shelter alone in 2010. Many were so malnourished and sick that they could not be saved. It costs Foothills Humane Society hundreds of dollars for each of the 1,500 animals coming to the shelter. Most of this tragedy and expense could easily be prevented by a simple, inexpensive spay neuter operation. You can be part of the solution: • Make an appointment with your vet early before your animal is in heat or pregnant and additional costs are charged. Females as young as six months can get pregnant and have 20 offspring a year, rapidly increasing your costs. Talk to your vet as prices and services

very with the size of the animal. • If you can’t afford to pay for your pet’s surgery, call Foothills Humane Society and ask about the SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program). Discount coupons are available to apply against the cost of your vet’s charges. Vouchers for surgeries donated by area vets are available for people needing more financial help. Vouchers for Pit and Pit crosses are available for free, regardless of ability to pay. • If you have stray or feral cats, the Community Cats Project offers free surgery, rabies and ear tip if the cat can be returned to your property. This is not an income-based program, and anyone needing help controlling “free roaming” outdoor cats should call Dana Mayer, community cats project coordinator, at 894-2088. • Rabies shots are required by law, and can be obtained at Foothills’ monthly vaccination clinic. 5-in-1 vaccinations will be available. The first clinic of

2010 will be held on March 19 at the shelter. • If you already have puppies or kittens, Foothills will help you place them if you agree to have mom fixed. Call for details. • Adopt your pet from Foothills rather than buying or taking a “free” puppy or kitten. All of Foothills’ animals are fully vetted, come spayed or neutered and with all age appropriate shots, microchipped and with a free gift of 30 days pet insurance. You will save a life and stop the business of irresponsible breeders and cruel puppy mill operations. Let Foothills know what you are looking for as many animals are adopted even before they come to the shelter as we help people to re-home their pets for many reasons. “Shop” the

Foothills website, • Don’t breed your dog. Breeding is rarely profitable, and Foothills often gets puppies from breeders who are unable to sell them. Vet costs with complications can be very high. Lots of help is available in the community to stop the cycle of unwanted “throw away” companion animals. For more information, contact Foothills Humane Society at 828-853-4444, 989. The shelter is located on Little Mountain Road in Columbus. – article submitted

Jack Knirk – 510; called to relay the story of another neighbor coming home to find a stranger standing in one of the bathrooms in their home. “I was looking for Butter Street,” the surprised intruder said. This brought the following response from the equally surprised home owner, “I’ll smear you all over Butter Street if you don’t get out of here!” The home owner was able to copy down part of the California

truck early one morning! For the first time in 25 years we are locking our vehicles at night and taking extra precautions around the house. The times they are a changing. I strongly suggest everyone follow the lesson my good neighbor taught me, if you see or hear of something out of the ordinary in your neighborhood, don’t keep it a secret. A Neighborhood Watch program only works if you communicate too!

I can see it now. Old age setting in, sitting on my front porch in my well-worn rocking chair. Looking out over the landscape thinking about life and family. Sipping on some good old-fashioned iced tea with a slice of lemon. I often wonder what my family will say about me when I’m gone. At this point in my life I could nail that down pretty accurately. Grassroots “We appreciated Dad, he bent over backwards for those chickens.” To set the record straight, I don’t bend over backwards just for the love a good over easy egg in the morning. There are two women in my life that absolutely adore those feather brains, which makes me married to keeping them up and running.

micile, risking being lit up like a glorified cartoon in the electrical storm, to make her more comfortable. I still haven’t gotten a thank you. One thing I do know, my wife and kids felt a lot better about the situation afterwards. Especially after we woke up to new chicks the next morning. Yeah Daddy! The miracle of life is amazing as we witnessed. I don’t know what came first, the chicken or the egg, but I do know that a glob of goo inside those eggs metamorphosed into a real live chick within 21 days of momma hen sitting on them. It’s hard to believe some don’t see the divine order of things when you witness nature in action like this. What I eat for breakfast every day turned into a real chicken when given the opportunity and environment. My daughter and son see this, and know at a young age that life is no accident and all life has a purpose, leaving evolution in the dust. I could carry an egg in my pocket for 21 days, and guarantee it won’t have the same effect. It may get a little messy though. Our hen knew exactly what she was doing and so do my kids when it comes to taking care of little chicks. Just another wonderful grassroots piece to the puzzle of life.
