Sherlock Holmes personified New biography tells story of Gillette’s life in Tryon, elsewhere Actor and playwright William Gillette is well known in Tryon, not only for his iconic portrayal of Sherlock Holmes but also for his impact on this area. Gillette lived in Tryon from 1891 until 1910. He built his home, Thousand Pines, in what is now the Gillette Woods residential area. Gillette was active in the community, performing in local theatrical productions of his plays and supporting artists such as Amelia Watson. The story of Gillette’s Tryon years, along with the rest of his life, is told in a new biography called “William Gillette, America’s Sherlock Holmes.” Written by Henry Zecher, a longtime Sherlock Holmes fan, the book calls (Continued on page 3)

Polk team cites lack of prosecution as gap in local child protection efforts D.A. Jeff Hunt calls for meeting by Leah Justice

Polk County’s Child Protection Team recently reported that a lack in prosecution of cases is a gap in local efforts to protect children. The team also identified men-

tal health and substance abuse as gaps, deficiencies or barriers to child protection. Other gaps mentioned in the report were unemployment, unstable living environments and lack of time for a juvenile court counselor in Polk County. District Attorney Jeff Hunt called for a meeting with Polk

officials after hearing of the team’s report. “In my office in the years I’ve been D.A., we have placed the highest priority on cases where women or children are victimized,” said Hunt. “We’ve always been very accessible.” (Continued on page 3)

• Gillette

(continued from page 1)

Gillette one of the American theater’s greatest stars. He wrote the first popular play about Sherlock Holmes and performed it more than 1,300 times in England and America. He brought Holmes to life and established for all time the image of Holmes with the deerstalker cap, the bent briar pipe and the profile, creating what may be the most instantly recognizable icon in the world. According to Zecher’s biography, it was from Gillette’s play that Hollywood film-makers derived the famous phrase, “Elementary, my dear Watson.”

Hunt said he was surprised to hear there was a problem in Polk County and that’s why he immediately called for a meeting to address the issues.

parents may face charges of contributing to child abuse in driving while impaired cases when a child is in the vehicle. Whitson mentioned during the March meeting that there are some cases in which a social worker can charge people with an offense. “So we are making progress,” Whitson said. The Polk County Board of Commissioners discussed the protection team report over the past two meetings. On March 21, commissioners heard from Polk County Department of Social Service (DSS) Program Manager Lou Parton, who is also a member

officials, commissioners and the sheriff. “I think we all need to sit down and talk,” said Whitson. The meeting has not yet been scheduled because some of the participants have been out of town the past couple of weeks. Since the April 4 meeting, Whitson, DSS, the school system and Polk County Magistrate Lionel Gilbert have met. As a result of that meeting, social workers will now be charging parents in some cases, for example, when parents are not sending their children to school.

Red Horse Inn wins AAA Four Diamand Lodging designation The Red Horse Inn in Landrum has been awarded the AAA Four Diamond Lodging designation. For 2011, 1,349 lodgings and 756 restaurants received the Four Diamond Rating. These 2,105 establishments account for just 3.6 percent of the total 59,000 AAA Approved and Diamond Rated lodgings and restaurants across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. “We are honored to receive the

valued AAA Four Diamond Rating,” said Innkeeper Mary Wolters. “The Four Diamond Rating acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our staff.” Mary and Roger Wolters purchased nearly 200 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1995. They built six cottages and a main inn that houses six guest

rooms, a conference center and a dining room and called it The Red Horse Inn. The inn is 30 minutes from Greenville and S p a r t a n b u rg S.C., and 30 minutes from Hendersonville N.C., and is designed for those wanting a weekend getaway, couples retreat, a romantic honeymoon vacation or wedding. The Red Horse Inn has won

numerous awards. The inn was honored as “Best Honeymoon or Anniversary Getaway” by “Inn Traveler,” named one of the top 25 “Best Undiscovered Incredibly Romantic Inns” by BedAndBreakfast.com and was recipient of the coveted “2008 Top 10 Romantic Inns” award from American Historic Inns, Inc.

• Child protection

fied mental health and substance abuse as the highest contributing factors to child abuse and neglect cases in Polk County, then unemployment and issues with parenting, lack of income and not having a good relationship with the DA in prosecuting cases. She said the county hasn’t had adequate mental health facilities for years and there are no adequate adolescent substance

abuse programs, as well as a lack of parenting classes. Parton also said the county needs more economic opportunities and a full-time juvenile court counselor. Commissioners also in March reviewed the child fatality protection team report and approved a proclamation recognizing April as child abuse and neglect prevention month (see page 4 for the proclamation text).

The child fatality team investigated two child deaths in 2009 under the age of 18. One death was caused by extreme prematurity and another was caused by shaken baby syndrome, according to team chair Helen White. The team meets to identify if there are any gaps to prevent child deaths that occur in Polk County. The investigations are done one year following the death.

Multiple local fire departments responded to a house fire on Whitney Avenue in Tryon around 2 p.m. Friday, April 15. Smoke was reported coming out of the home’s roof. Windy conditions caused the smoke to billow around the home and carried the smell downtown. The fire was brought under control just before 3 p.m. (photo by Samantha Hurst)

WHERE WE WORK An in-depth look at an area business

PERSON FEATURED: Laura Linz, exec. director BUSINESS: Tryon Arts and Crafts School ADDRESS: 373 Harmon Field Rd., Tryon PHONE NUMBER: 828-859-8323) HOURS: Mon. - Fri., 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Sat. 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. E-MAIL: TryonArtsandCrafts@windstream.net NATURE OF BUSINESS: Tryon Arts and Crafts School is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide creative opportunities for everyone through education, instruction and expression of heritage and contemporary arts and crafts in a friendly, stimulating and enriching environment. We provide education and instruction through a variety of classes and workshops. Courses include pottery, weaving, basketry, woodworking, blacksmithing, lapidary, stained glass, silversmithing, copper enameling and quilting. Members, students and instructors have the opportunity to showcase their talent in the Gift Shop. The Heritage Gallery exhibits artifacts, crafts and tools dating back over the past two centuries. PRINCIPAL OWNER/MANAGER AND TITLE: Laura Linz, exec. dir., Ruby Drew, president YEAR FOUNDED: 1960 PRIOR LOCATIONS: We have been in several locations, but most notably we were in the same building as Tryon Fine Arts Center before moving to Harmon Field. HOW’S BUSINESS? Business is great! We offer classes and workshops in many craft media for all ages. We offer excellent opportunities to learn in all of our seven professionally-equipped craft studios: lapidary, fiber arts studio, blacksmith’s forge, pottery studio, jewelry and silversmithing studio, wood shop and a multimedia studio where we offer fused and stained glass, copper enameling, basketry, leather and fiber painting. We have an

incredible program for kids called Summer Sizzler. This is a week-long camp for kids ages 9-14. The camp is from 8:30-5:30 each day and the kids learn a variety of crafts. We offer five sessions each summer. ONE THING YOU WISH EVERYONE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS: We are 51 years old as of April 2011! We are a nonprofit, membership-based organization and crafts school with something to offer for everyone no matter their age or interests. SOMETHING YOU OFFER THAT A CUSTOMER WON’T FIND ELSEWHERE: Our gift shop offers one-of-a-kind craft items that have been juried and hand-selected. We have an incredible selection of beautiful art that is always changing. You can find jewelry, pottery, leather work, silk scarves, shawls and blankets, fused and stained glass, folk art, baskets, wood crafts, metalwork, notecards and fiber and textile items. ADVICE TO YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS: Know what you are passionate about and pursue that! The only way to not burn out is to do something you enjoy. We hear it all the time, but it really is true. Also, get involved in the community. It will help you make connections and help you decide what you are interested in. YOUR FIRST JOB: My first official employment was as a cashier at the local grocery store in my hometown, but I had always been a babysitter for the neighborhood. I have to say I made a lot more money babysitting than I ever did ringing up groceries! THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS IS: Remember the vision and mission of the organization/business and make sure that everything you do fits that vision. Never be afraid to try new things or take risks and always keep learning!

FENCE Benefit Golf Tournament at Bright’s Creek adds $10,000 prize This month’s FENCE Benefit Golf Tournament at Bright’s Creek on Monday, April 25, will feature a $10,000 holein-one award, along with a second opportunity to win a 2011 Buick Regal from Boyd Automotive for a hole-in-one scorer. The awards are among several that are available to players on the challenging Tom Fazio-

designed course at Bright’s Creek, normally open only to club members. Drawings will be held post-tournament for the weekend use of a BMW X5 or X6, sponsored by BMW Manufacturing and for a two-night stay at Bright’s Creek with two days of golf. “We have fifteen teams registered, with room for more, as well as room for individual

Sipping your way to successful special event In the last article we discussed the food for your special events. In this article we will continue talking about the food served for your special event. One of the questions that I get asked a lot about special events is what to do with the volunteers – do we feed them or not? My response is yes, volunteers work very hard so your special event and nonprofit can be successful at what they do. If cost is an issue and you don’t have time during the event to feed the volunteers, due to time constraints, ask the chef or caterer to prepare a special menu, which most will do for free, so volunteers can sit down and eat with the nonprofit’s leadership, before the event. This is just another way to say thank you to the backbone of your organization. The next item you and your committee will need to spend time on are the beverages to be served. I know what you are thinking, really – is it that important? Yes, you need to make sure and serve beverages to compliment the food and that will also please your guests. The first step is to consider whether or not to serve alcohol. This needs to be a major decision for the organization. Not only is serving alcohol a

The couple has been drawn to nature – landscapes, flowers, trees and animals – and they have amassed a wide collection of images from their 10 years of travel across North America. Nearly 500 of those photos can be viewed in the Serene Gallery portion of their website at www. livesimplywithstyle.com. As technology changes the way they take pictures, it changes the ways in which the Smiths share them. They shoot with three digital cameras. With their computers, they employ negative and flat bed scanners.
