Only 50 cents

Outreach garden program seeks funds by Samantha Hurst

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

Carol Newton said her staff at Thermal Belt Outreach took a leap of faith in offering their Garden of Hope program to 35 clients again in its second year. There are currently just two

spots left in this year’s program

but funding has come through for only nine of those 35 participants. Newton said it takes only $40 to sponsor a single client’s garden. That $40, she said, supplies them with food worth much more

in both a fiscal and mental sense. “These folks are learning new skills that can benefit them in life,” Newton said. “We support other people who need help on (Continued on page 3)

based on its desire to move all services out of the Jervey Palmer building on Carolina Drive in Tryon. Built in 1929 as the old St. Luke’s Hospital, the aging Jervey Palmer building has been used for county offices since the 1970s and is costly to maintain. (Continued on page 10)

own produce. The volatile economy last year put Collette Thompson in a position of needing assistance to supplement her income. Spending much of her life as an avid gardener, she was thrilled to run across a program that boosted her spirits and offset ever-rising food costs. “It helped tremendously,” Thompson said. “It saves you money on lettuces, celery – all sorts of things that tend to be expensive. They had someone till my garden – I couldn’t afford that this year. It all has been such a blessing.” Thompson received a bounty of seeds, including staples such as tomatoes and squash (10 different varieties, in fact). She also got a batch of unexpected seeds such as apple gourd, celeriac and kohlrabi and herbs like sage and anise. When her garden proved fruitful, Thompson brought an abundance of produce back to TBOM to feed other clients. “I think it’s a neat feeling to provide yourself with something.

When you taste them from your own garden and know the money you save… it has a profound affect on you,” Thompson said. “I think people are pushed to realize they can do more than they are doing and I think it teaches selfesteem and more respect for the environment.” Reedy said the clients truly look forward to the program. “Last year they all came together at the end of the season for a vegetable feast,” Reedy said. “We all sat down to share a meal – when people are struggling they crave that support.” They are often lifted up to help one another, Thompson said. “You 2x4want them to participate, you want to nourish indepen4/21 dence,” Thompson said.

Is Your Back Pain Keeping You From the Life You Really Want? It's time you took a step back and looked at your life, and what really matters the most. Looking back over the years, you know how fast time can fly. One minute your feeling strong, young and pain free...ready to take on the world. Then in what seems like no time at all, you're unable to do the activities you love because of your back pain. But what if you could play golf again, travel and walk long distances without any pain? There is a treatment called spinal decompression that is likely to help you get rid of your problem once and for all. I'm willing to give you a $25 exam, and x-rays if needed -- both of which are normally priced at $250 (note X-rays normal cost $125) -- to find out if this will work for you. If you're not sure about spinal decompression, here are...

3 Reasons You Should Try It Now: My name is Dr. Sarah Merrison-McEntire, D.C., of Carolina Chiropractic Plus and I understand what it feels like to live in pain, because I see it every day. I’ve seen hundreds of people with disc herniations, back pain and sciatica -- patients who were once told surgery was the only option -leave my office pain free.

First.... You May Avoid Back Surgery. One of the most common invasive treatment for disc herniations is back surgery. Of course the issues that can arise with back surgery are numerous, including a long recovery, complete fusion of your joints, and lost income from missing work.

You see, I became a doctor to help people get well. I've always been driven to find natural ways of helping people heal their bodies, before trying drugs or surgery. As part of that purpose, I've acquired state-of-

Spinal decompression treatments are very gentle. In fact, every once and awhile I even catch a patient sleeping during sessions.

Do You Have Any of These Conditions? • • • • • • •

Herniated discs Bulging discs Degenerative disc disease Severe back pain Sciatica Surgical relapse Facet syndromes

If so, this may be the solution. Read this article for more information. the-art technology to help local residents like you finally get rid of your pain.

Before going 'under the knife', you should seriously consider a less invasive approach like spinal decompression. Non-surgical spinal decompression is a technology that has been shown to help disc herniations. Second...This Is Non-surgical and Drugless. Non-surgical spinal decompression is a technology that has been proven to reverse disc herniations. It creates a vacuum effect on the disc, which pulls the disc back into its normal position and brings in a fresh blood supply to promote healing.

You’ll simply lie on your stomach or back, whichever is comfortable, and then a specialized belt is gently put around your waist. We’ll set the machine to focus on your problem area – then the advanced decompression computer system will do the rest. Most patients feel better with just a few treatments, and best of all there will be no dangerous drugs, no invasive procedures, and no painful exercises. Third... An Excellent Success Rate Ann Lattimore stated “Before treatments on the Spinal Decompression Table I could barely walk to my bathroom and had severe lower back pain. After, Spinal Decompression treatments I feel wonderful and the first time in 10 years, no lower back pain.” Mitch Carpenter stated “Before treatments on the Spinal Decompression Table I could not walk without extreme lower back pain. After treatment, I have a lot less pain and can move much better and my bowels are more regular than they have ever been.” Marian Hardy stated “Before treatments I could not get out of bed in the mornings and could not stand for long periods of time. Following treatments, I’m feeling great, fantastic and my back is wonderful. Very seldom do I have any back pain.” As you can see, this treatment has a high success rate. What this means for you is that in just a matter of weeks, you could be back on the golf course, enjoying your love life, or traveling again. LIFE'S TOO SHORT TO LIVE IN PAIN LIKE THIS.

Water customer questions Lake Lanier water quality Tryon says water quality exceeds state standards by Leah Justice

A Tryon water customer has expressed concerns over the quality of the water in the town’s reservoir, Lake Lanier. Michael Verbonic attended Tryon Town Council’s April 19 meeting and expressed several concerns about the lake being used as a reservoir, including sewage concerns and fuel being spilled into the water. Tryon Town Manager Justin Hembree said the lake water is treated and there have been no negative results from state testing. “Water quality tests have consistently exceeded all NCDENR (N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources) standards,” said Hembree. “In fact, the town has received awards for the quality of our treated water.” Tryon Water Plant Supervisor Betty Jones said the water coming into the plant and water going out of the plant is tested every day and since she has been with the town since 1987, the raw water has never tested positive for coliform and E. coli, which indicates

whether fecal matter is present. She said the town knows there are impurities in the lake water, but she said by the time it gets to the intake, most of the impurities have settled and the water used for drinking water is taken off the top, then treated. According to Jones, the water’s most recent turbidity has been extremely low, between 1.2 and 1.35. Jones said her requirement is for the turbidity of the water going into the clear well to be 0.1 or less after it’s treated. Test results are sent to the state once per month, and other testing is done throughout the year, including seven samples per month taken throughout the town’s distribution system. Verbonic also asked council members what the plan is in case of a fire at the lake. He called the lake’s boathouses “tinder boxes” and requested the town cease issuing building permits and prohibit future fireworks on the lake. He also called the lake “lawless,” and asked who residents are supposed to call in case of an emergency. “What is going to happen tonight when one of those structures goes up in flames and there’s another three feet from it,” (Continued on page 7)

Verbonic asked council. He said to further complicate the situation, hundreds of the structures contain fuel containers. Verbonic said there are no fire extinguishers and no fire code, with “unlicensed users spilling fuel into my drinking water.” Verbonic also asked council since the town owns the lake, why Tryon children cannot swim there. Tryon owns the lakebed of Lake Lanier and pumps water to its water plant for the town’s main water source. Tryon regulates zoning over the water, such as any boathouse construction. The land surrounding the lake is located in Greenville County, S.C., which is in charge of regulations for buildings constructed over the land. The state of South Carolina a few years ago deemed Lake Lanier as a private lake and stopped S.C. Wildlife Resource enforcement of boat and fishing

activity on the lake. The lake is considered a subdivision, built in the 1920s, and is privately used by landowners.

Tryon receives Greenville County fire taxes to respond to lake fires, as does the Landrum Fire Department. Other emer-

gencies, such as those requiring law enforcement officials, are handled by Greenville County, S.C.

‘Arsenic and Old Lace’ rounds out Spartanburg Little Theatre season Comedy runs May 6 - 15 The Spartanburg Little Theatre wraps up its 2010-2011 65th anniversary season with the classic comedy of stage and screen, “Arsenic and Old Lace.” On stage for six performances from May 6 - 13 at the Chapman Cultural Center, critics say “Arsenic” is as funny today as when it debuted in 1941. When the elderly Abby and Martha Brewster offer their lonely gentleman callers a glass of homemade elderberry wine,

the results are always fatal – and hilarious. It’s up to their young nephew Mortimer to deal with his homicidal aunts, his uncle who believes he’s Teddy Roosevelt, his newly betrothed fiancé and his murderous brother who has recently undergone plastic surgery to look like Boris Karloff, all while trying to keep the police at bay. Tickets for “Arsenic and Old Lace” are available by calling the Chapman Cultural Center box office at 864-542-2787 or by ordering on line at www. – article submitted

In recent years, the Meeting Place Senior Center and veteran’s services offices have moved out of the Jervey Palmer building into the former Carolina Classical School building off Skyuka Road in Columbus. A new department of social services (DSS) building is currently under construction off Wolverine Trail in Mill Spring. The mental health services department, run by Family Preservation Services, is the last remaining office in the Jervey Palmer building. Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson said it’s his plan to vacate the Jervey Palmer building by the end of October 2011. The new DSS building is scheduled to be complete in August, and the county plans to move DSS services to the new building in September. Owens and Pack said they don’t want another building to maintain and questioned why mental health services can’t be housed in the new DSS building since original plans were to build seven extra offices. DSS Director Sue Rhodes said there now may be one extra office, but she is not sure that one won’t be filled as well. Whitson said the county can only be reimbursed by state and federal governments for the building costs for space that is used. One of the originally planned extra offices will be used by a juvenile officer, another space is being used

to comply with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for recyclables and another space is being used to provide resources for the blind and an office for a community action social worker, Whitson said, among other uses. “So basically we built extra space and figured out how to fill it up,” said Pack. Commissioner vice-chair Renée McDermott and commissioner Cindy Walker said putting mental health services and DSS services together is just not feasible. “The [new DSS] building was not designed to house a mental health component,” said McDermott. “It simply wouldn’t work there.” Rhodes also said there is no space for other services in the new building. Walker said she asked the same thing about putting mental health services in the new DSS building and understands why it wouldn’t work. She explained that there could be situations where mental health and DSS clients do not need to be in the same building. Family Preservation Services has been providing mental health services for Polk County for approximately five years. Family Preservation took over mental health services after New Vistas closed after approximately six months in Polk County. (Continued on page 11)

Renovations to the house include added square footage, Tambini said. Walker said with the renovations making the building worth more, she “doesn’t see what there is not to like,” in the deal. The property is located on 9/10 of an acre at 94 White Drive in Columbus adjacent to the Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry. Outreach executive director Carol Newton said the property and building were appraised at $120,500. She also said Outreach clients and Family Preservation Service clients are often one and the same. She said Outreach serves many low-income residents who have drug needs that fit right in with Family Preservation services. The county plans to use $80,098 of mental health funding Polk received when the Polk/Rutherford Mental Health district dissolved several years ago through a state reform of mental health services. The other almost $30,000 and closing costs will come from the county’s general fund. Commissioner Owens asked if the county could use the $80,000 for anything, such as employee raises. Whitson said although the money has been used for mental health services traditionally, it is not restricted and could be used for anything.

Simpson has also crafted butterflies, the American Flag (though he’s still working on how to create stars) and angels. Around the Christmas holidays he transformed his hedges into a “choo-choo� train flanked by angels. His train has started to get overgrown now and he thinks, just for fun, he might carve it into a “low-rider� car since the wheels and frame remain somewhat visible. He said he has another design in mind but wouldn’t give away those plans. “I’ll tell you one thing though, it’ll make everybody in Landrum think, ‘Whoa,’� he said. Don’t stop in the middle of the road to gawk and cause a wreck, Simpson asked of passersby. “I'd just as soon you pull into the driveway and get out and look around,� he said. “I don’t mind it at all. I want people to enjoy it.�

been allocated to the ADM fund to state education expenses. Counties lost approximately $200 million in those two years from this action. In 2010, the legislature also redirected $63 million in county lottery dollars for state education expenses, including classroom and university scholarship costs. This was the first time a fixed allocation of lottery proceeds was appropriated to the Public School Capital Fund in lieu of the statutory 40 percent of net lottery proceeds for county school capital needs. All told, counties have lost more than a quarter of a billion dollars in school construction funds in the 2009-11 biennium. Continued loss of these funds will result in property tax increases to fund necessary school construction and renovation projects, and to support existing debt service payments for school capital expenditures. Sixty-two counties report using some or all of their lottery proceeds for debt service, with 38 counties dedicating all of their lottery monies for school debt service. These counties have already increased property taxes, reduced their classroom appropriations, spent down their fund balances and/or eliminated other important county programs to make up for these reductions. Without restoration of these funds, the state will see a chilling effect on availability of additional county funding for classroom teachers, teacher salary supplements, teaching assistants and other classroom enhancements.

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

Action needed: The legislature received a budget proposal from the governor in February that continued the elimination of the ADM funds and the loss of the lottery proceeds. The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Education deferred the appropriation of lottery funds to the chairs of the full Joint Appropriations Committee. A decision has not yet been made. Commissioners are asked to urge their legislators to reinstate these funds. Bills related to goal • H41 – Tax fairness in education An act to allow an individual income tax credit for part of the expense of avoided public education and to authorize counties to appropriate funds for children educated other than in public schools. • S8 – No cap on number of charter schools An act to increase educational opportunities for the children of North Carolina by removing the cap on charter schools, by creating a new public charter schools commission to approve and monitor charter schools, by strengthening the standards for granting and retaining a charter for a charter school, by authorizing local board of education to convert schools to charter schools without forming a nonprofit corporation, by clarifying the funding formula for charter schools in their jurisdictions and to make other changes to the general statutes governing charter schools. • S362 – Reallocate lottery funds An act to reallocate lottery funding from class size reduction and Pre-K programs to school construction.

Ashley Justice collects bottles and cans at the Blue Ridge BBQ festival. (photo submitted)

No ‘trash talking’ for recycling volunteers at BBQ festival BBQ festival organizers still seeking volunteers In Polk County we don’t just talk trash – we do something about it. At the Blue Ridge BBQ and Music Festival, year after year, the most dedicated volunteers are the recyclers who stand watch over recycling stations, happily directing festival-goers to put their food scraps in one basket, their plates in another and their cups and bottles in another. It’s the efforts of these unsung heroes that result in an average annual

savings of 13,000 pounds of waste diverted from landfill to recycling. Cindy Walker, chair of the recycling committee, said, “By catching our waste and sending it in the right direction, we save natural resources, create jobs and new materials, save precious landfill space and reduce pollution. It’s environmental leadership and it’s something everyone from our volunteers, to our workers, to our festival guests can feel good about. It’s the volunteers that make it happen. They’re indispensable.” (Continued on page 21)

Volunteers are needed throughout the festival: at the food tents, in Hog Heaven, at the River Stage, at central recycling and early Sunday morning for the final cleanup. Wherever volunteers are stationed, the benefits are built in. Volunteers at the food tents in front of the Main Stage get to hear the live music – for free. Same with the River Stage site. And all you have to do is stand or sit and smile as you direct concert-goers to which container to place their things in. A smile and a friendly “howdy” from a senior volunteer tells guests to the Foothills that Tryon really is the “Friendliest Town in the South.” Whole families are known to volunteer. Alex Leake, 13, has been a loyal recycling volunteer for the past three years in a row. When Leake was 10, he asked his dad, long-time volunteer, Michael Leake, if he could help out at the festival. Being so young, he didn’t know where he could work, so his dad suggested he help with

the recycling. “I thought it would be a good way to help our environment, and then I saw how everybody worked together as one for a great cause and I wanted to come back to the recycling each year after that,” Alex said. Hog Heaven volunteers get to walk around, talk to cookers and assist them sort their waste. Hog Heaven recycling volun(Continued on page 22)

Renée McDermott, Ted Owens speak to Kiwanis Club

Polk County commissioners Renée McDermott and Ted Owens spoke to the Tryon Kiwanis Club recently about the issue of creating a county clerk and county attorney position that would be held by one person instead of two. Owens took the stand that one person could handle the work and it would save the county some money. McDermott believed we would be asking one person to be a “jack-of-all-trades” employee. The county commissioners discussed this topic last year and decided not to change from the way the jobs are handled now. The club members said they enjoyed their debate. In appreciation of their program, the book “Three Little Kittens” will be donated to a local school. Pictured above, from left, are Kiwanis member Ernie Giannini, Renee McDermott, Ted Owens and Kiwanis Club vice-president Blake Smyth. The Tryon Kiwanis Club meets weekly at the Congregational Church at noon on Wednesdays. Visitors are welcome for the lunch, for a small fee, and the program.

Four Wolverines sign college football letters of intent by Daniel Hecht

With 22 wins, including 12 victories in 2010 alone, and two Western Highlands Conference championships, the past two seasons have been, without question, the most successful in Wolverines football history. Tuesday, May 2, at the Polk County High School library, four of the players who made key contributions to that success took the next step in their athletic careers, signing letters of intent to play football at the collegiate level next year. Linebacker/guard JJ Maxwell has received an appointment to the Naval Academy. The team captain led the Wolverines in tackles over the past two seasons, earning All-Western Highlands

Wolverines soccer gets senior night victory over Owen by Joey Millwood

Polk midfielder Candace Arrington had never scored a goal with her left foot until Monday, May 2. With 8:26 left in the first half, the sophomore put her left foot on a ball that shot off the Owen goalie’s hands into the right corner of the net. Arrington’s goal was the only one of the night as the Wolverines won the match on Senior Night 1-0. “I’m just so happy that I finally got an opportunity,” she said. Arrington plays midfield so the scoring opportunities aren’t always there. She credits head coach Lennox “Rock” Charles for getting her in the right position for the goal. Polk goalie Donny Every had a strong night in the night. The Wolverines pressured the ball all night, so the save opportunities weren’t plentiful, but Every made some strong plays down the stretch to

ensure the shutout. “Anything can happen in a 1-0 game,” the senior goalie said. “It’s just as intense as of it’s tied up.” The key to the game, Charles said, was at the very beginning. “We knew if we won the first ball, we could keep them pinned in,” he said. Polk’s JV team also won, defeating Owen 4-0. The Wolverines are now 126-2.

Polk soccer loses to Thomas Jefferson 2-1 in overtime by Jordan DeVere

In a rare weekend game, the Lady Wolverines soccer team played host to Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy at the Polk Middle School on April 30. The day got off to a good start for the Wolverines as the JV girls won 10-0. The scoring was capped off by starting goalie Brea Hamby, who scored the final goal after being moved to forward. The varsity team, however, lost a close battle in overtime, 2-1. The game began with early offensive intensity by the Wolverines, but the Thomas Jefferson defense repelled the onslaught. Thomas Jefferson was quick to counter and was the first team to breakthrough on a shot that curved and went inches above Polk goalie Donna Every’s outstretched fingertips. At the half Thomas Jefferson was up 1-0. Polk’s senior leaders stepped up in the second half, as Brittany

Phipps knocked in the equalizer with 34:19 remaining in regulation. Another senior, Peyton Habenicht, saved the game for the Wolverines with a slide tackle to prevent a 1 on 0 for the Thomas Jefferson forward. With the suspense and tension rising, Thomas Jefferson’s head coach got a yellow card for harassing the refs and questioning their decisions. At the end of regulation the game was tied 1-1. In the first half of OT, Thomas Jefferson again broke through the Wolverines defense and scored. Some observers felt the Thomas Jefferson player was offside, but the line judge failed to make the call. The Wolverines rallied, putting an enormous amount of pressure on Thomas Jefferson in the last minutes of overtime, but to no avail. The Wolverines fell 2-1. Polk looks to rebound Monday, May 9 against Owen.

Royal wedding enthusiasts enjoy tea at Zenzera's Friday, April 29. (photo by Samantha Hurst)

A royal affair in Landrum raises around $1,500 for Mobile Meals by Samantha Hurst

Royal wedding enthusiasts raised about $1,500 for Mobile Meals in an event fit for the queen held Friday, April 29. Women donning fasteners and wide-brimmed hats with feathers and florals gathered at Zenzera’s in Landrum to view the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Attendees nibbled on Norwegian smoked salmon and caviar, organic fig canapes, lemon curd and freshly baked scones, all served on vintage

china. Then they sipped tea as they oohed and aahed over Kate’s dress and Prince William in his military uniform. Local celebrity Pam Stone, with the help of friend Shirley Bradley and numerous local business owners, organized the charity event. Those businesses included Zenzera’s and owner Debbie Briggs; Johnny Carruth, who supplied the big screen television; interior designer Gillian Drummond and Randy Grobe of The Frog and Swan, who provided the vintage china.
