Sometimes 95 is a good number for golfers Tryon Country Club celebrates 95 years Sunday 1916 was an important year in U.S. golf history. In that year, the PGA of America was founded with 82 members, the first PGA championship was held and, on May 8, Tryon Country Club opened for play. The Scots began playing golf in the 1500s, but the game didn’t have broad appeal until the late 1800s, when Scotland’s St. Andrews Golf Club began organizing it as a sport and conducting tournaments with cash prizes.

Polk High senior on a quest to stop drunk driving by Leah Justice

Amber Holt grew up hearing the tragic stories of family members she never knew who were killed in alcohol-related crimes. When her father also died in an alcohol-related crime, Holt's world was changed. Now 16 years old, Holt on a quest. “I remember when I used to think it was just another thing that parents worried about too much, and then I lost my dad, who was my best friend, and my whole world changed,” said Holt. “Five years ago, I would have given everything I had to know the stuff I know now. And I'd give everything I have now just for one last chance to tell my dad I love him.” Holt says her family’s history of being victims of alcohol and drug related crimes consistently over a 50-year period

is a sign they should speak against impaired driving and do everything they can to educate people on the real and serious consequences of the crime. Holt asked the Polk County Sheriff ’s Office to place a wrecked car and sign at the high school this week to remind students prior to the prom tomorrow night, May 7, not to drink and drive. She is also doing her senior project on drinking and driving. “It took me losing my dad to make me realize how serious drunk driving is, and I don't want someone else to have to lose someone to realize that drunk driving is not okay,” Holt said. “People will get hurt and people will get killed.” Holt’s family’s history is ridden with tragic deaths related to (Continued on page 4)

“I had a bad valve and 6 months to live. Now I can climb all 158 stairs from the lake to my house.” “ Living on Lake Nantahala, I love to be active…walking, fishing, boating. And at 80-years-old, I thankfully can still do all these things because of the care I received at Mission. They replaced my bad valve, and after only four days, I was back home. I know I received some of the best heart care in the country.

news briefs A glance at some of the latest news in the area.

Polk discusses changes to employee insurance Polk commissioners continued discussions on Monday, May 2 on whether to change the employee insurance plan next year. County Manager Ryan Whitson recommended changes to the plan not begin until Jan. 1, 2012. The county is considering changing the plan, which will mean higher deductibles and copays for employees. The county would still pay monthly premiums.


Polk volunteer board appointment policy Polk commissioners this week decided for the clerk to publicly state how each commissioner voted on volunteer board appointments. Commissioners previously decided to make appointments by ballot with just the names of the appointment being read by the clerk.

St. Luke’s certificate of need application The Polk County Board of Commissioners will hold a special meeting Tuesday, May 10 to hear from St. Luke’s Hospital regarding the county's signing off on the hospital’s certificate of need application. The hospital at a later meeting is scheduled to ask the county to deed over property in order for the hospital to secure a loan for a $6.5 million expansion.

Polk makes appointment to Region C board During a meeting Monday, May 2, the Polk County Board of Commissioners appointed Stephen Brady to the Region C Workforce Development board.

Parris is asking for parole. Holt said she started her senior project last year by doing a small assembly at the high school telling her story. She knows her facts and the statistics of drunk driving by heart. Perhaps her favorite fact is, “drunk driving is 100 percent preventable.” Holt and the rest of the family say they despise the word, “accident,” when hearing of any impaired driving incidents. Some statistics in Holt’s project include: • Drunk driving is the cause of more deaths than all the United States’ wars combined • Traffic crashes are the number one killer of teens • North Carolina ranks 7th redeemed - 19

in the nation for alcohol related traffic deaths and number 1 in boating driving while impaired deaths • Only one out of every 100 to 200 drunk drivers are caught • One-third of all drivers who are arrested and convicted of driving while impaired are repeat offenders Holt and her family are very active in Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) with Holt’s cousin, Wendy Kimpton, helping to form the Foothills Community Action Site of MADD. “You don't have to lose someone to know that drunk driving is dangerous; the statistics are there in black and white,” Holt said. “You hear the stories. Is it really worth it to risk your life, or someone else’s?”

Golfers at Tryon Country Club in 1947. (photo submitted)

• Country club (continued from page 1)

boasted the first professional golfer, Old Tom Morris, who worked at the club his whole life and was succeeded by his son, Young Tom Morris. Interest in golf began to appear in the United States near the turn of the 20th century and golf courses began to be built. A number of golf course architects came from Scotland to help investors develop their dreams. One of the most talented and prolific was a young man who had studied under Old Tom Morris named Donald Ross. Ross eventually built more than 600 golf courses; many are considered classics and are respected worldwide for their beauty and superior tests of skill. Tryon Country Club and Pinehurst #2 are examples of his creations in the early 1900s. By 1916 golf popularity was expanding and Tryon was in the forefront. Many of the new courses were built as ninehole venues because investors weren’t sure that golf was not just a passing fad. The U.S. Open Championship was first played on the nine-hole Newport Country Club in Rhode TREASURE - page 30

Island (1895 – 1898). The U.S. Amateur was played the next day on the same course and was considered the bigger tournament. Tryon Country Club was formed on May 8, 1916 and has continuously operated as a private golf club to the present day. It remains a nine hole (+1) course but has 18 tees so 18 different holes comprise a round. For the last 95 years, thousands of golfers of all skill levels and notoriety (including Sam Snead, Lady Astor, F. Scott Fitzgerald, David Niven and Randolph Scott) have enjoyed a round of golf at Tryon Country Club. Those same golfers lost hundreds of thousands of golf balls in a little stream (Wee Burn) that must be crossed nine times during the 18-hole round. The stream is so small it doesn’t look as though it can capture even one ball. Tryon Country Club is celebrating its birthday with special membership offers and “get-acquainted rounds.” For more information, contact Marc Brady, PGA professional, at the club house, 828-859-9561, or visit www.tryoncountryclub. com. – article submitted

All work sessions will be held at the Womack building in Columbus. The budget includes no employee salary increases, but a $300 Christmas bonus, up from this year’s $100 bonus. The recommended budget also includes $200,000 for future Lake Adger Dam repairs, $150,000 in fuel contingency, $300,000 additional to the school system, $100,000 for county-wide water and water line extensions and $50,000 for the contingency fund. “The proposed budget shows that Polk County is still surviving the current economic recession without using fund balance to operate on and without raising the tax rate,” Whitson told commissioners. “Polk County is being hurt by the state’s reduction in funding to our school system. To offset state reductions, this proposed budget increases school funding by $300,000 per Polk County School’s request.” Polk County’s funding to the school system represented 19.4 percent of its amended budget this year and with the $300,000 addi-

tion will represent $23.3 percent of the county’s proposed general fund budget for next year. The tax rate is recommended to stay at 52 cents per $100 of valuation, with the total budget proposal at $25,998,075. Polk’s general fund budget is proposed at $20,797,175 (see table above). That number is brought to the total budget of $25,998,075 by the addition of special revenue funds at $2,779,415, the enterprise fund for solid waste and water at $1,195,045, internal service fund for health insurance at $1,126,440 and capital projects at $100,000 for the county’s water and water line extensions. The total real property valuation is $2,587,231,539, which is an increase of $7,431,480 or 0.3 percent. The collection rate is down from the previous year at 96.78 percent, according to the 2010 audit, compared to the previous year at 97.62 percent.

cles is down, Whitson said, to $138,628,377 from $165,074,797 the previous year, but the collection rate is slightly up. The 20112012 estimated figures should bring in $643,661 in motor vehicle tax revenue, Whitson estimates. The total revenue estimated

farmland by Ramon and Cynthia Norden. “We are farmers, we bought the property in 1975 and we have an easement on their property for us to get to our bottom land,” Eleanor Williams said. “The lady that owns the property now has had it for three years and has blocked us in with a pick-up truck. We figured it was going to happen.” Ramon Norden said he and

his wife wished to work with the Williams, who own property adjoining theirs, but said efforts failed. “We didn’t want to prohibit a farmer from getting to his farm but we are very concerned about privacy issues and safety issues,” Norden said. Norden added that he and his wife were aware of the easement when they purchased the property three years ago. He said even then

there was a gate at the entrance of the easement. “There is a gate with a lock on it; they have a key and we have a key,” Norden said. Eleanor Williams said the gate has been there for years because the prior owners were concerned about people riding four wheelers through the property. She said jumping off a parked tractor

from property and motor vehicle taxes is $13,954,059, which is $198,186 less than what was projected in the current year’s budget. The county is also projected to receive $1,891,820 in sales tax revenue next fiscal year, which Whitson said is an optimistic increase of 2.99 percent over the current year’s projected budget. The county is also anticipat-

ing permit and fee revenues in the amount of $297,636, which is down 7.95 percent from the current budget. Other projected revenues, including interest, grants and the sale of assets, are estimated at $107,890, which is almost half of the current budget. “This is a safe, realistic budget,” Whitson told commissioners. “It is not overly optimistic

and it keeps Polk County in a position to weather future problems from the economic downturn. The employees of Polk County are committed to make this proposed budget work for the citizens of Polk County.” The county plans to hold the public hearing on the proposed budget on June 13 and adopt the budget on June 20.

Polk County’s unemployment rate continued to follow the statewide downward trend, decreasing six tenths of a percent in March. The rate dropped in March from 8.4 to 7.8 percent, according to the latest figures from the North Carolina Employment Security Commission (ESC). Unemployment rates decreased in 99 of North Carolina’s 100 counties in March. Rates rose only in Greene County. Polk County had a labor force of 9,158 in March, of whom 8,446 were employed and 712 were on the unemployment rolls. Polk was one of 35 counties at or below the state’s unadjusted unemployment rate of 9.7 percent, down from 10.1 percent in February. The March rate reflected a 1.8 percentage point drop over the year so far. Rates decreased in all 14 of the state’s Metropolitan Statistical Areas for the second consecutive month. Asheville’s rate dropped from 8.6 percent to 8.1 percent in March. Orange County had the state’s lowest unemployment rate in March, at 6.1 percent (down from 6.2 percent in February), while Graham County had the highest rate, at 16.4 percent (down from 17.3 percent in February). Statewide, the number of people employed (not seasonally adjusted) increased in March by 51,323 workers to 4,039,958. The number of people unemployed decreased by 15,025 workers. In March, 434,073 people were unemployed, compared with 445,872 in February.

“Unemployment rates declined in nearly every county in March,” said N.C. ESC Chairman Lynn R. Holmes. “We are beginning to see more counties drop below a rate of 10 percent unemployment. This reflects the commitment by Gov. Perdue and our workforce partners to grow jobs in our state, and this agency remains focused on putting people back to work.” South Carolina's unemployment rate dropped below 10 percent in March for the first time in two years. The March rate of 9.9 percent is the lowest the state has achieved since its all-time high of 11.8 percent in 2009. Spartanburg County’s jobless rate dropped from 10.1 percent in February to 9.5 percent in March. The rate in Greenville County also dropped, from 8.1 to 7.7 percent. Nationwide, 216,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy in March, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The unemployment rate, however, remained relatively unchanged, falling to 8.8 percent from 8.9 percent.

NCACC reviews state issues affecting counties Polk County commissioners reviewed current state bills that could harm county tax dollars during a meeting Monday, April 18. Following is text from the NCACC regarding proposed changes that could affect county jail systems and farmland preservation. See the Wednesday, May 4 Bulletin and upcoming issues for information from the NCACC about other issues. Residents who want to express an opinion about these issues to state legislators can contact Rep. David Guice by email at David.Guice@ncleg.net or by phone at 919-715-4466; Sen. Tom Apodaca can be reached by email at Tom.Apodaca@ncleg. net or by phone at 919-733-5745.

Protect county jail system


Issue: Oppose legislation to shift misdemeanants to county jails. NCACC policy: The association recognizes that the state and counties are partners in the operation of the criminal justice system and will support policies and laws that contribute to this partnership being an equitable one. Background: Under current law, misdemeanants sentenced to 90 days or less serve their sentences in county jails. Until 2010, the counties were reimbursed $18.50 per day toward the cost of housing these misdemeanants. The legislature eliminated those funds in the 2010 state budget. The Joint Appropriations Committee on Justice and Public Safety is now considering a plan that would mandate that all misdemeanants serve their sentences at the county level. This would transfer an estimated 1,600 inmates to county jails. This represents a cost shift to the counties of roughly $33 million. Many county jails are already over capacity. Additional state inmates in county detention centers will magnify that problem, and will cause extensive

increases in jail medical costs. Action needed: Commissioners are urged to contact their legislators in opposition to the plan to shift the state’s responsibility for housing of misdemeanants to the counties.

Support conservation of working lands and farmland preservation

Issue: Oppose recommended cuts to the Farmland Preservation Trust. Support legislation to promote and preserve working farmlands by including these lands in the state tourism plan, by retaining the current authority for the present use value system, by maintaining funding for the Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust, and by authorizing counties to implement transfer of development rights. NCACC policy: As North Carolina’s urban centers expand into agriculturally oriented land areas, public policy questions emerge as to the regulation of development patterns. The association believes strongly in flexibility of form and function, and therefore supports local control over land-use decision-making and its impact on the agricultural community. Furthermore, the association supports state policies providing local options and tools as to the preservation of farmland, if they in fact serve the best interest of all counties. Background: Conservation of working lands becomes ever more important as the state becomes more urban in nature. Funding for the Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund was included as one of 36 legislative budget priorities in the State Budget Act last session, and $2 million in annual funding was changed from non-recurring to recurring. To maintain that important presence, significant areas must be maintained in working lands. (Continued on page 19)

PlayStation users at risk from Sony security breach Area PlayStation owners’ personal information may be at risk, according to N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper. A recent report by Sony PlayStation estimates more than 780,000 North Carolina residents’ personal information may have been compromised as a result of a hacking incident.

A security breach happens when data or records containing personal information such as Social Security numbers or bank account numbers are lost, stolen or displayed. “With just a few key pieces of information, an identity thief can pretend to be you and ruin your good name and credit,”

said Cooper. “If you learn that your information may be in the wrong hands, act fast to protect yourself.” Sony PlayStation was made aware of the hacking incident last week and determined that consumers’ names, addresses, email addresses, birthdates, PlayStation password and login information,

and online identification was compromised. It is also possible that consumers’ credit card information was obtained by the hacker, as well as their profile data, purchase history, billing address and security answers. If the primary account holder

Additional appropriations for the Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund above 2010 fiscal year funding could be used to work with military bases, training zones and other areas to protect the military presence in North Carolina and to promote local food production on farmland in designated areas.

Bill to limit involuntary annexations moves forward A bill approved this week by an N.C. House committee would make it more difficult for municipalities to proceed with involuntary annexations. The House Rules Committee approved a provision that would block involuntary annexations if 60 percent of property owners in the area sign a petition against it. If the petition requirement is met within four months of the annexation’s approval, the city is prohibited from pursuing the involuntary annexation again for three years. Over the past 50 years, cities and towns in North Carolina have been permitted to annex adjoining, unincorporated areas without approval from property owners. Under the proposed new law, municipalities also would be required to install water and sewer service taps to each house in the proposed annexation area if it’s requested by property owners in the area within about 60 days. If the taps are not requested by a majority, the city can charge for the hookups. The North Carolina League of Municipalities said the bill, which now heads to the House Finance Committee for approval,

would reduce the number of involuntary annexations in the state. The league said the bill may be only slightly less restrictive than previous proposals requiring a referendum on all involuntary annexations. Cities and towns said new restrictions would stifle their ability to grow and gain additional revenue. They said current annexation law, which allows them to absorb adjoining areas that have become urban in nature, is a prime reason why North C a r o l i n a ’s municipalities are among the most fiscally sound in the country. However, opponents of involuntary annexations said residents in a proposed annexation area have no means of blocking the annexation under current law. Stop NC Annexation, a nonprofit group, praised the approval this week of the proposed new law, which it hopes will continue moving forward in the N.C. General Assembly to give property owners a voice in future annexations.

accounts from being opened in their names and continue checking their credit frequently. See www.ncdoj.gov for more detailed security breach tips. North Carolinians can request free security freezes by visiting the three major credit bureaus’ secure websites and providing identifying information such as their Social Security number, address and date of birth. Consumers who don’t have access to the Internet can request and lift security freezes by mail or telephone for $3 per bureau. Freezes by mail or telephone are free to victims of identity theft and consumers over age 62.

included dependents, the dependents’ information would also be included. The company said it has disabled its network and is rebuilding the system to enhance the security. Sony PlayStation sent emails to North Carolina consumers affected, posted the breach notice on its website and alerted statewide media outlets. Cooper recommends that people who’ve received a security breach notification alert the credit bureaus, consider getting free security freezes to prevent new

The 40-year-old bridge in Charlotte, which carries more than 110,000 vehicles each day, is slated for $1.8 million in improvements to the deck and underside beginning next month, according to the N.C. Department of Transportation (DOT). A bridge on I-26 in Buncombe County is ranked seventh this year on AAA’s list of the 20 most substandard bridges in the state. The 55-year-old bridge over Hominy Creek is scheduled for replacement, based on the state’s Transportation Improvement Plan, but it’s unclear when funding will be available for the bridge replacement. AAA Carolinas said state legislators are considering capping the state’s gasoline tax at 32.5

cents per gallon, which would limit funding for bridge and road improvements. The current tax of 32.2 cents per gallon is due to rise two cents per gallon in July, generating an estimated $97 million in additional revenue. AAA said North Carolina has faced funding shortfalls over the past several years and last year was only able to allocate $96 million for bridge maintenance and repair. AAA’s 2011 report shows a total of 5,320 substandard bridges, about 29 percent of all the bridges in the state. The AAA report also gives the total number of substandard bridges in each county of North Carolina. The report shows 45, or 33.6 percent, of Polk County’s 89 bridges are substandard. Henderson County has 96 substandard bridges, or 37.1 percent, and Rutherford County has 137 substandard bridges or 44.1 percent.


AAA classifies substandard bridges, based on federal guidelines, as either “structurally deficient” or “functionally obsolete.” All of the bridges in AAA’s top 20 ranking are structurally deficient, meaning they are in relatively poor physical condition and/or they are inadequate for the weight of trucks. The average age of the top 20 substandard bridges in AAA’s report this year is 49. AAA said none of the bridges poses an immediate threat to motorists.

*** North Carolina legislators are considering whether to shorten the school year for some schools in mountain counties that lost nearly a month of classes this year because of winter weather. A committee in the N.C. Senate agreed to allow schedule flexibility for school districts in six mountain counties. The flexibility would allow districts there to

hold classes on less than 180 days as required by law. If approved by the N.C. General Assembly, the flexibility also would be offered to Cumberland and Green counties, where school buildings were damaged by tornadoes last month, and in Onslow County, where a wildfire in March forced schools to close. *** The N.C. House and Senate approved an increase in speeding fines in school zones. Legislators agreed to increase the fine from a minimum of $25 currently to $250. The legislation, once signed by the governor, would place school zone fines in line with those for highway work zones. The increase was backed by the North Carolina Child Fatality Task Force. *** Residents and visitors in Asheville pay the highest gas prices in North Carolina, according to (Continued on page 22)

Greensboro facility. Employees from the Hickory facility are protesting the plan, which they said would cost Hickory 200 jobs and potentially disrupt delivery in Caldwell, Boone and other mountain counties. The postal service, which lost $8.5 billion last year due to reduced business, said the consolidation would save about $6 million annually. The postal service said a final decision has not been made, but, if the Hickory facility is closed, employees there will be offered jobs at other locations.

AAA Carolinas. AAA reported the average price of unleaded gas in Asheville recently as $3.876 per gallon, slightly higher than the state average of $3.853. Gas prices were cheapest in the Triad area at $3.83. According to AAA, the average cost of a gallon of gas in North Carolina is up more than $1 from a year ago. After beginning the year at an average of $3.03 per gallon statewide, prices have risen in line with the cost of a barrel of oil and are now around the same level as in October of 2008. North Carolina’s average is below the national average of $3.967, but above the average of $3.711 in South Carolina. AAA attributes the price increase this year to the weak U.S. dollar, unrest in the Middle East and North Africa, a seasonal increase in demand, and a switch to cleaner fuels. AAA Carolinas said, if current conditions persist, North Carolina could see prices top $4 a gallon this summer.

*** Lake Lure Town Council is asking Pardee Hospital to consider bringing a medical facility to the town. Lake Lure Mayor Bob Keith said town residents currently rely on a “fragmented network of providers in the region,” and would benefit from a family practice, urgent care, therapeutic services, wellness care and assisted living facilities. Keith said the town decided to approach Pardee after it was unable over several years to gain help from Rutherford Hospital. Pardee Hospital said it is studying the feasibility of a medical clinic in Lake Lure, although it cannot guarantee it will reach a different conclusion than Rutherford Hospital. *** The U.S. Postal Service is planning to close the mail sorting facility in Hickory and consolidate operations with the

*** Two buses carrying 13 Freedom Riders left Washington D.C. 50 years ago to travel to Richmond, Va., Greensboro, N.C., and Rock Hill, S.C. The riders who traveled to fight segregation in the South in 1961 faced firebombs and the Ku Klux Klan on their way through Georgia and Alabama. Georgia Rep. John Lewis was with the Freedom Riders when he was attacked at Rock Hill, S.C., for attempting to enter a whites-only waiting room at the bus terminal. The riders eventually completed their trip to New Orleans by plane and then returned to Mississippi. As part of the 50th anniversary of the civil rights Freedom Riders, students will retrace the path of the Freedom Riders. PBS also is airing a new documentary on the history.

How to Find New Life in Christ

This is what the Bible tells us: By nature, your heart runs from God and rebels against Him. The Bible calls this "sin." Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Yet God loves you and wants to save you from your sins. To give you this gift of salvation, God made a way through His Son, Jesus Christ. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” You receive this gift by faith alone. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Will you receive Jesus Christ right now? 1. Admit your need (I am a sinner). 2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent). 3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for You on the cross and rose from the grave. 4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come into your heart and life through the Holy Spirit (Receive Him as Lord and Savior). If you are choosing right now to receive new life through Jesus Christ, pray this prayer. Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name, Amen This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ. To deepen this relationship you should: 1. Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better. 2. Talk to God in prayer every day. 3. Tell others about your commitment to Christ. 4. Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a Bible-teaching church. If you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please let us know. We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually. If you have questions please call:

• Special Cases

as I was curious how things were going. Pat, who often speaks for her dogs said, “the girls said that I took away Percy and I bring us this.” They soon grasped that Sammy was older and was somewhat in the same position each of them had been through, be it at a younger age. They have begun to treat Sammy with the same reverence as they did Sir Percival, as Lexi (the mother hen) makes sure no one plays rough with her. I will conclude with a message to two souls no longer with us. “Mary, I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know Sammy has wound up in the best possible home for her.” “And to you, Lord Percival, you did your job well, I haven’t any doubt you’d be extremely proud of your court.” Thanks for listening.

(continued from page 30)

My routine with each visit is to greet them all first and then give them special one-on-one time in the order they arrived at Pat’s. First Mandy and then Lexi, as Isabel, the youngest, impatiently waits her turn trying to squeeze in for extra time. When the girls were satisfied I went to greet Samantha as Pat came out to join us. As a matter of fact the girls actually led me over to Sammy as if to say, “Look what we have, Uncle Lennie.” Sammy, understandably so, was a little shy but very sweet. I was amazed how the girls deferred and allowed my oneon-one time with her without interference. Afterwards, inside the house with all the girls, Pat and I spoke,

Unitarian Universalists meet May 8

JAYH- changed for 1/28

Lunch Tues.-Sat. 11:30-2:30pm

Friday, May 06, 2011

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176 N. on Sunday, May 8 at 10:30 a.m. The speaker will be Reverend Jean Rowe, whose topic will be “May Nothing Evil Cross This Door: The Blessing Way.” “What is a blessing? Irish author John O’Donohue says it is a circle of light drawn around a person to protect, heal and strengthen. A blessing ‘forebrightens’ your way rather than

‘foreshadowing’ it. It is also a major feature of Celtic spirituality: ‘May the road rise up to meet you.’ ‘Deep peace of the running wave to you.’ We’ll explore how living by blessing can change your life,” said Rowe. Come early to join in fellowship and refreshments. After the service, a board meeting will be held, to which all are invited.

• “I’m Just Saying”

pered with incredulous eyes. “I haven’t seen so many hats in Landrum in over 30 years!” She was right - it was as if we were suspended in a long past decade and I reveled in it. We now live in a garish time of tanning booths and purposely revealed bra straps. How different from the elegance before me and, afterwards, glancing over photos of the event, I remarked to Paul how much younger we all appeared. “It’s the lighting,” he pointed out in all seriousness. “Nothing is more unflattering than to have unfiltered overhead light pouring down on someone’s face - it settles in all the lines and wrinkles. The brims of the hat block that light for a more uniform look.” Well that’s all I had to hear. Forget the botox, ladies. Let’s go back to hats!

Turning, I saw a dear thing tidily attired in a suit from another time with a natty matching hat. “No one else in my family wanted to come to the tea and I didn’t want to miss it for the world, so I’m all alone. Is there a place for me?” “You’re not alone, you’re with me,” I smiled, clasping her white gloved hand. “And of course there’s a place for you I’m going to seat you with some lovely ladies.” She smiled brightly and allowed herself to be led to the table. “Oh, my,” she whis-

Wildlife commission offers tips on coexisting with black bears As the weather warms, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is offering steps to avoid conflicts with black bears emerging from hibernation. The commission is cautioning people to take care not to feed bears that wander into yards, parks, onto sidewalks or in other residential areas. Feeding a bear rewards it for coming near people and their homes and increases the likelihood that the bear will approach again. While black bears are rarely aggressive toward people, they can become bold when they grow accustomed to feeding on human-provided foods, such as garbage and birdseed. Often, they lose their fear of people. Contrary to popular belief, wildlife employees will not trap and relocate bears, because this would simply relocate the problem, rather than solve it. The solution is to modify habits, such as how you feed your pet(s) or where you store your garbage, before a problem begins. Residents can avoid problems by: • Securing bags of trash

inside cans stored in a garage, basement or other secure area, and placing the cans outside, as late as possible, on trash pickup days – not the night before. • Purchasing bear-proof garbage cans or bear proofing your existing garbage container with a secure latching system. • Discontinuing the feeding of wild birds during spring and summer, even with feeders advertised as “bear-proof.” Bears are still attracted to seed that spills on the ground. • Avoiding “free feeding” pets outdoors. If you must feed pets outdoors, make sure all food is consumed and empty bowls are removed. • Cleaning all food and grease from barbecue grills after each use. Bears are attracted to food odors and may investigate.

Late heroics advance Lady Cardinals to state by Joey Millwood

Landrum’s Lady Cardinals softball team won the Region II District Championship May 4 to advance to the Upper State Championship on Saturday. Landrum struggled a bit from the mound and the batters’ box, but was able to pull out a 6-5 victory over McBee with some late inning heroics. The Cardinals were down 5-3 going into the seventh inning, but Landrum did what good teams do. They found a way to win. McBee pitcher Callie Wayne walked Jordan Farmer with one out. One of Landrum’s hottest hitters, Lauren Pitts, followed with a single. Bre Cuff followed with an RBI single. With one out, the Panthers decided to pitch to Shelby Morris, who had struck out one inning earlier. That was a mistake. Morris hit a shot toward the first baseman for an RBI single to tie the game up. “I wasn’t even thinking,” Morris said. “I just believed in my team that we’d pull it through. We always do.”

Allyson Moore pushed Wayne to a 2-2 count and on the next pitch, the ball got past catcher Alex Rogers and Cuff made a mad dash for home and slid in for the winning run. “It felt amazing to slide in for the winning run in the district championship,” Cuff said. Landrum wasn’t its usual self and struggled a bit, but the Cardinals’ ability to win despite that caught head coach Tucker Hamrick’s attention. “I told them before the game that we had to take it,” Hamrick said. “It’s a great feeling to win in that fashion.” The Cardinals trailed the entire game. Despite struggling a little on the mound, Farmer fanned six Panther hitters. The offense didn’t really click until the final inning, but that didn’t get them down. “We stayed focused on what we have to do,” Hamrick said. “We don’t get down on ourselves. We stay in the game the whole time.” The Cardinals will host the first game in the Upper State Championship on Saturday at 2 p.m.

Landrum High’s baseball team won its second game in the state playoffs to advance to the district championship May 4, but it wasn’t without difficulty. With two outs in the top of the

seventh inning, Matt Pruitt stood on the mound for Landrum. The Cardinals were up 4-2 and Pruitt was one out from a complete game victory. In the batter’s box, however, stood Lewisville’s Preston Kirk.

Kuykendall at shortstop to end the game and punch the Cardinals’ ticket to the District Championship game with the 5-2 victory. Did he ever worry at all? “There was no doubt,” Pruitt said. And the senior had the faith of his coach as well. “I wouldn’t have it any other way,” Landrum coach Ray McCallister said. “He stepped up and wanted the ball.” Offensively, the Cardinals chipped away at Lewisville starting pitcher Will Robbins all afternoon. The Landrum batters pushed him to the limit. Kuykendall showed pa tience at the plate, walking three times and getting hit by

a pitch. The junior scored two of the Cardinals’ runs. “My approach was just to go in there and look for something to hit,” he said. “I wanted to make him throw a strike.” Joseph Corn, Jon Humphries and Thomas Rabatie each drove in a run. Pruitt got the win after throwing 123 pitches and striking out seven. For McCallister and players who returned from last year, they got a little revenge. In last year’s playoffs, Lewisville eliminated Landrum en route to a state championship. “It was a little redemption, but you can’t think about last year,” McCallister said. “We were fortunate enough to come out on top tonight.” Landrum will host the district championship Wednesday, May 11 at 5 p.m.

Letter to the Editor

Burial of Osama Bin Laden

To the Editor: I was most disappointed in your choice of wording in the article on the death of Osama Bin Laden in your May 3 edition. You chose to describe the burial of bin Laden as being “disposed of at sea.” The term “disposed of” clearly connotes the notion of “getting rid of.” Nothing I have seen or read regarding the actions of the Navy regarding the treatment of Bin Laden’s remains would suggest that he received anything less than humane treatment. Quite the contrary. The media releases from the several Obama Administration spokesmen as well as those from the Pentagon all go to great pains to describe the conformance to the Islamic religion’s beliefs about ritual washing and burial of Bin Laden within 24 hours of death. Your paper missed an opportunity to provide an accurate reporting of the facts. – Bob Kromer, Mill Spring

Stop junk mail and prevent mail fraud Dear Savvy Senior, How can I reduce the junk mail my elderly mother gets? She gets around 25 pieces of junk mail each day, and I just discovered she’s given away nearly $2,000 over the past year to many of the sleazy groups that mail her this junk. How can I stop this?

Here’s what you can do to help.

This is the junkiest of junk mail that comes from con artists who are only trying to take your money. Mail fraud can be tricky to detect because there are many different types of schemes out there that may seem legitimate. Some of the most common mail scams targeting seniors today are fake checks (see fakechecks.org), phony sweepstakes, foreign lotteries, free prize or vacation scams, donation requests from charities or government agencies that don’t exist, get-rich chain letters, work-at-home schemes, inheritance and investment scams.

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. Intestacy Q. What happens if I don't make a will? A. If you die owning assets in your own name and do not have a will, the state of North Carolina will provide you with one. Of course, you have given up the right to decide who will get your assets and how they will get them. You have lost the right to say who will be in control of your assets upon your death and you cannot name the person of your choice to be the guardian of your minor children. Not having a will does not mean that your estate will not be probated. The process is essentially the same for those who do have and those who do not have a will. It just goes by a different name. If you have a will it is called a probate. If you do not it is called an administration. In either case the court will be involved in determining how your assets will be distributed.
