Polk County’s oldest business marks 100 years McFarland Funeral Chapel celebrates its centennial When families contact McFarland Funeral Chapel to help them after the death of a loved one, they may not realize they are tapping into 100 years of local history. The McFarland family has served the families and community of the Carolina Foothills for a century. Continuously owned and operated by the McFarland family since its founding in 1911, the business is the oldest still operating in Polk County. Over the years, McFarland’s has handled funeral services for thousands of people, from ordinary area citizens to wellknown celebrities. According (Continued on page 3)

Columbus sends state road improvement ideas for TIP list by Leah Justice

Columbus Town Council is sending road improvement ideas to the N.C. Department of Transportation (DOT), with a pedestrian plan from Walker Street to Beechwood Drive topping the list. Columbus Town Council agreed Thursday, April 21 to send the list of ideas to be included on the state’s Traffic

to Darlene McFarland, some of the more notable clients have included Moe Howard, one of the original Three Stooges; Pat Hingle, best known for his recurring role as the commissioner in “Batman” movies; Harold Lilly, founder of Frito-Lay; and Robert Wagner, known for his roles in “Hart to Hart” and “It Takes a Thief.” The business got its start when, as a young man, Frank K. McFarland Sr. took a salesman’s position with the W. D. Ballenger General Merchandise Store in Tryon. He soon realized his niche had become the furniture department, which included the sale of caskets. Along with the familiarity of casket sales he became accustomed to consoling families when deaths occurred. He expanded on this knowledge, working briefly with a funeral home in Columbia, S.C., and attending Brown’s School

of Embalming in Raleigh, N.C. Following his graduation and completion of the state examination, Frank McFarland Sr. became Polk County’s first licensed embalmer on May 2, 1911. The F. K. McFarland Funeral Home, Polk County’s first funeral home, opened in 1911 on North Trade Street in Tryon. It was located on what is currently the Tryon Federal Bank property. In l9l3, Frank Sr. married Flora Fisher of Saluda, N.C. Flora became the receptionist, secretary and face of the funeral home, handling much of the business while Frank embalmed and directed funerals. It wasn’t hard to find Flora or Frank in the early years of the business, when telephones first became common in the area. If the McFarlands were going to be away from their home and business for a while – for example, visiting a friend – they called the local telephone operator and told them where they would be.

If someone called the operator needing the McFarlands’ help, the operator knew where to direct the call. Frank Sr. and Flora had four children, three daughters and a son. Their son, Frank K. McFar-

land Jr., worked at the funeral home with his father beginning in his early teens. Frank Jr. completed his education at Cincinnati College of Mortuary (Continued on page 4)

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

PERSON FEATURED: Jill Kelly BUSINESS: Buy Way ADDRESS: 191 E. Mills Street, Columbus PHONE NUMBER: 828-894-6563 NATURE OF BUSINESS: General merchandise, discount store OPERATING HOURS: 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday - Saturday YEAR FOUNDED: April 2011 PRINCIPAL OWNERS: Ricky and Jill Kelly PRIOR LOCATIONS: 2

Nobody else will take care of your business like you will. MY FIRST JOB: Painting schools in the summer for Polk County.

NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES: 2 HOW’S BUSINESS? Steady and growing every day. ONE THING YOU WISH EVERYONE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS: We would like everyone to know that we understand there are a lot of different kinds of stores out there. We will strive to make you a lifetime customer. Some stores expect your business. We appreciate it! SOMETHING YOU OFFER THAT A CUSTOMER WON’T FIND ELSEWHERE: We offer great quality, brand name merchandise at a big discount. We sell everything from toothpaste to flat screen TVs.

YOUR ROLE MODEL (IN BUSINESS OR IN LIFE GENERALLY): My husband Ricky. He has a few different businesses (car dealer, National Guard, auction owner, general merchandise discount stores). He puts his heart into everything he does and finds a way to make it all work. He is a smart man who is not afraid to take a risk for something he believes in. He truly is the hardest working man I know. THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS IS: Treating your customers right - understanding that if it weren’t for them, you would have no business.

in distress. Earl had already left to go back home, with plans to come back the next day, when doctors gave Renee even scarier news. “Come to find out they said she wouldn’t have lived one more day in my belly,” Renee said. Ten minutes later doctors decided to go ahead and perform a C-section, she said. “I remember praying the whole way back, back there,” Renee said. “The first thing that came into my mind was, ‘I will never leave you or forsake you’ … my heart was beating so fast

but as soon as those operating doors opened I felt at peace.” Doctors told the Prices their little girl would never drink from a bottle or be able to hear, among other things. Wanting their daughter to spend her time on earth at home, and not in the hospital, the Price’s took her home. “She had such a temper – she was a little fighter, let me tell you,” Renee said. “She would jerk that [feeding tube] out and so, I said, ‘Ok, I’ll just give you a bottle.’ And she did, she drank from it.” Maddie was just 3 pounds when she was born and only 6 pounds the day she died – the size

of a newborn. Her grandfather however said she made more out of life than anyone he’s ever known, despite her tiny stature. “That little lady packed it as full as any person ever has,” Rev. McKinney said. He said his granddaughter missed few church services and brought much delight to those around her. “It was six months of just a wonderful, wonderful gift. God knew the right family to give her to,” Rev. McKinney said. “We just tried to lavish our love on her.” Rev. McKinney said 250 people showed up for Maddie’s

funeral. The medical costs the Price’s have borne, the emotional distress they faced, didn’t surmount the blessings Maddie’s young life brought them, Renee said. “She had so many people praying for her – so many people told me that because of her they got closer to the Lord. I just think that it’s amazing she was able to touch so many lives,” she said. Additional donations received will be put toward defraying medical costs for Madeline’s family. Donations can be made by contacting the church at 828863-2600.

As part of the medical treatment team, P.A.s align with a physician and possess skills and education which allow them to work with considerable autonomy in patient care and treatment if needed. Hemsath’s career began in the U.S. Navy. He served as a hospital corpsman from 1969 – 1973. He attended the Navy Hospital Corps School at Balboa Hospital in San Diego, Calif., before transferring to the Naval Hospital in Pensacola, Fla., where he worked in the surgical orthopaedic ward caring for Vietnam war casualties. His final Navy service was completed at the Naval Aviation Hospital Patuxent River, where he was assigned to a helicopter search and rescue crew. He participated in more than two dozen crash emergency incidents and received “Winged S” for the successful rescue of a downed pilot. Hemsath completed the primary care physician program at Cincinnati Technical College in Ohio. He graduated summa cum

laude with an associate degree in applied science in 1977. Previous employment includes the emergency departments of Rutherford, Mary Black and Pardee hospitals. He worked for eight years in the emergency department of Mission Hospital. He has also worked at Park Ridge Orthopaedics and Asheville Hand Center. Most recently, Hemsath was part owner and a provider at Rutherford Emergency Medicine. Hemsath lives in Rutherfordton with his wife, Brenda, a nursing supervisor at St. Luke’s Hospital. “I am so impressed with Dr. Rosenberg’s skill and rapport with his patients, and I look forward to assisting him and serving the people of the community,” said Hemsath. Since 2004, Dr. Rosenberg has steadily increased the number of procedures he performs at St. Luke’s Hospital with orthopaedics now accounting for 50 percent of the surgeries performed in an area of active retirees and the era of Baby Boomers. His progressive techniques and individualized patient care have helped to attract patients from across the region and neighboring states. In addition to treating general fractures, Dr. Rosenberg performs joint replacement or reconstruction of the knee and hip, as well as sports medicine procedures and arthroscopy to treat knee, hip and shoulder injuries. His latest treatment includes indwelling pumps that reduce the need for and the ill-affects of pain medications.

Thompson presents ‘Crow Talk’ Tuesday at Upstairs Artspace Notable bird expert and birding guide Simon Thompson will lecture on crows this Tuesday, May 3, at 7 p.m. at the Upstairs Artspace. The program is in conjunction with the exhibit “Something To Crow About,” which features 10 regional artists illustrating the crow in paintings, drawings, prints, woodcuts, woodcarvings, clay sculpture and mixed media. Thompson will speak informally about the crow – its

intelligence, behavior, habitat and mystique. Just how smart are crows? Why do many people dislike them and shoo them out of their yard? Why are artists attracted to crows as subject matter? Thompson will shed light on such questions and much more. Originally from England, Thompson is co-partner in the Wild Birds Unlimited store in Asheville. A birder his entire life, Thompson leads birding tours all over the world. His syndicated

newspaper column about birds appears regularly in the Tryon Daily Bulletin. Tryon residents may remember when Thompson worked at FENCE, conducting birding walks and teaching people about the rich bird life in the Blue Ridge foothills. The lecture is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. For more information, call 828-859-2828 on Tuesday. – article submitted

Holland Brady awarded lifetime membership at Lanier Library Frances McCain retires from board Tryon architect Holland Brady, who spoke at the Lanier Library on Tuesday, April 19, was presented with a lifetime membership at the library following his presentation. He described the contributions to the architecture of the town by 42 architects, giving brief histories of their careers and, on a more personal level, talked about some of his own recollections of the library, including the woman who was librarian in his youth and for whom he worked as an assistant, Mary Frances Carpenter. Brady, who is still practicing architecture in Tryon after more than 50 years, designed both extensions to the Lanier Library and he and his partners have designed more than

700 buildings in and around Tryon since the early 1950s. The program at which Brady spoke is part of the Brown Bag Lunch series (held on the third Tuesday of every month) that was instituted by Frances McCain. McCain, who is retiring after serving two terms on the library’s board of directors, was responsible for organizing numerous programs at the library including plays and other library sponsored activities held at the Tryon Fine Arts Center and summer children’s programs. All Lanier Library programs are free to the public. The Lanier Library, located at the corner of Chestnut Street and Melrose Avenue in Tryon, is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30

Landrum wins dramatic first round in 1A state playoffs by Joey Millwood

Landrum won its first round 1A state playoff matchup against Dixie in dramatic fashion on Thursday night, April 28. The game was tied 2-2 going into the seventh inning, but the Hornets scored two runs in the top of the seventh. When the Landrum baseball team walked off the field in the middle of the seventh inning, they were met by head coach Ray McCallister. McCallister wasn’t going to see any heads down. “I challenged them when they came off the field that champions stand up and fight and they stood up and fought,” he said. “I’m proud of them.” The Cardinals came out in the bottom half of the final inning, scored three runs and celebrated at home plate with a 5-4 victory. Two times on Thursday night, Cardinal centerfielder Connor Noland came up to the plate with two outs and runners in scoring position. Down 2-0 in the second inning, Noland sent a shot into

the outfield, driving in two runs. He came up again in the bottom of the seventh and hit a hard line drive towards Dixie shortstop Will Hopkins. Hopkins turned and fired toward first baseman Alex Cann, but Noland was hustling down the line and Cann mishandled the ball. Two runs crossed the plate to tie the game and Noland reached base for the third time. “It felt great to come through for my team,” Noland said. Dixie pitcher Caleb Chandler walked Jon Humphries to score the winning run for the Cardinals. Matt Pruitt got the win for the Cardinals after retiring the last batter in the seventh for Landrum. Landrum starter Joseph Corn pitched a strong game, striking out five batters. The seventh inning was just bad luck for the senior as an error kept the inning alive long enough for Dixie’s Drew Devore to hit a two-RBI double. Landrum’s first round continued on Saturday versus Lewisville. Those results were not available by press time.

Lady Wolverines soccer prevails over Hendersonville by Jordan DeVere

On Thursday, April 28, the Lady Wolverines made the trip up the mountain to face arch rival Hendersonville in a highly anticipated match-up of conference powers. Both the JV and the varsity game were decided by one goal. JV fell short 3-2 and varsity prevailed in overtime 3-2. In the early going it became clear it was going to be a very physical game with lots of fouls on both sides. The refs did not

help this, as they made several questionable calls at key points. At one point the head ref failed to see that the lines men had called offsides and because of this error, he gave the ball back to the Bearcats in the Wolverine’s zone. Despite this, the Wolverines gave up only one goal in the first half after a breakdown in communication by the defenders. At the half the Bearcats led 1-0. At the beginning of the sec-

ond half Hendersonville came out with renewed pressure, keeping Polk’s defense and keeper on their toes. Donna Every made several saves at full extension to keep the Wolverines within reach. With 12 minutes to play the Wolverines finally got the equalizer as Ellese Cash sprinted through the opposing defense and beat the keeper, tying the game at one game apiece. At the end of regulation both

teams prepared for what proved to be a dramatic overtime. The first OT was evenly matched as both teams had their chances but all were turned away. Polk’s keeper Donna Every again made several saves, and after the first half of OT the game was still knotted up at one a piece. In the second half of OT, things got interesting. With less than five minutes to play, Polk (Continued on page 15)

Farmer pitches gem en route to playoff win by Joey Millwood

The Landrum bats were alive on Thursday night in the first round of the 1A state softball playoffs. The Lady Cardinals beat Ware Shoals 16-0, but the bats weren’t the only story of the night. Jordan Farmer pitched a gem, en route to the victory. Farmer struck out eight of the first nine batters she faced. Macie McDill grounded out to Farmer in the first inning, but there wasn’t another Lady Hornet batter to put a bat on the ball until Anna Pulley lined out to shortstop Lauren Pitts in the fourth inning.

• Soccer

(continued from page 14)

striker Brittany Phipps received a cross into the box and headed it into the back of the net, giving the Wolverines their first lead against Hendersonville this season.

“I felt pretty good,” Farmer said. “We just felt that if we went out there, start it off good and maybe it will carry over (farther into the playoffs).” The game couldn’t have unfolded any more perfectly for head coach Tucker Hamrick. “We wanted to come out and not make mistakes,” he said. “We wanted to play Landrum Cardinal softball.” The two biggest innings offensively were the first two for the Lady Cardinals. Landrum scored five in the first and four in the second. Taylor Jenkins started the first inning by reaching base on an error. Farmer fol-

lowed with a double. Pitts drove in Farmer with a single. Bre Cuff drove in Pitts on a fielder’s choice. Cuff later scored on a single from Morgan Smith. Pitts led the way for the Lady Cardinals. The shortstop was 2-2 with a walk and drove in three runs while scoring twice. Skylar Henderson and Mallori Inman had two RBIs each. Cuff, Shelby Morris, Taylor Jenkins, Smith and Taylor Wahler all had one RBI. The Lady Cardinals will now shift their focus to McBee. Landrum will host the Lady Panthers at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.

This victory was short-lived, however, as less than a minute later the Bearcats tied the game. The teams continued to battle it out until Cash finished the Bearcats off with a goal with just 30 seconds to play, sealing the deal for the Wolverines 3-2. “All I have to say is we all

stepped it up tonight,” Phipps said. “And one couldn’t have done it without the other. We played like a real team should.”. The win keeps the Wolverines in line for the conference championship as they look to clinch the championship versus a good Thomas Jefferson team.

How to enhance profits from special events In the last article we discussed the food for your special events. In this article we will talk about profit enhancers for your special event. I have said it before and will say it again, as nonprofit leaders we want all of our events to be successful. This is especially true for the special events intended to raise a lot of money for our organizations. So, what are some ways to add additional revenue and your next special event? Let’s start with several different profit enhancers described in this article. Auctions are almost a staple and continue to raise a lot of money for nonprofits. Most nonprofits focus on live and silent auctions. In order for live and silent auctions to be successful the organization must put a lot of work into getting several large and desirable items, along with a lot of smaller, just as desirable items to auction. A new concept is that the auction itself is the event and it is virtual (all online). Organizations choose several items that fit their mission closely and auction the items online. Several nonprofits have en-

At many events I have attended I have witnessed the guest who won the 50/50 turn over the entire amount back to the organization.

TDDA to host Palmer Street design charrette Friday, May 6 The Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) will host a design workshop, or “charrette,” to generate development concepts for the future direction of the Palmer Street area in downtown Tryon Friday, May 6 at 10 a.m. The term “charette” means “cart” or “chariot” in French. Architectural students frequently worked to the last minute on their design presentations, even while riding in the school

cart (en charrette) through the streets of Paris en route to submit their projects to their professors. The term became synonymous with working right up until a deadline, or an intense work session. The goal of the two-day event is to develop ideas suggesting future potential and development opportunities that would be beneficial to the long-term growth and vitality of the downtown Tryon area.

The study area encompasses the area bound by Trade, Howard, Palmer and Maple Streets. The charrette will take place at the Tryon Fire Station. Participants will brainstorm ideas, facilitated by local design professionals who will lead groups in illustrating concepts. The session will conclude with a public presentation Saturday, May 7, at 11 a.m. Lew Holloway, urban designer with the Small Town

Main Street Program, will serve as the meeting moderator. Holloway was Tryon’s representative during the recent Small Town Main Street process. The public is invited and encouraged to attend and participate throughout the two-day session.
