Ratcliffe of St. Luke’s receives Norman Boyer Award by Leah Justice

The Norman Boyer Award, given annually for work in mental health, substance abuse and developmental disability service, was awarded to Dr. Robert Ratcliffe this year. Ratcliffe was honored during a luncheon held Monday, May 23 at the Melrose Inn, sponsored by the Polk County Mental Health Advisory Board. Stephen Cefalu, a clinical social worker who works with Ratcliffe at St. Luke’s Hospital in the geriatric psychiatry unit, introduced Ratcliffe, saying he needs no introduction with all he has accomplished.

Patrol volunteer applicants must be at least 21 years of age, a U.S. citizen and a resident of Polk County or an adjoining county. Applicants must have access to a horse, horse trailer and vehicle to pull, approved by the department for use in mounted patrol functions and training. A criminal background check will be conducted on all applicants and those applying must complete the department-approved equestrian training program before being accepted into the mounted patrol. The unit will be utilized in situations that do not involve dangerous activities, but it may be called upon for special details including search and rescue, crowd control and security, parades, crime scene security and public relations. “You know when you are walking through a dark parking lot with your family into a

the Blue Ridge Barbecue and Music Festival. “It gets the public involved with the sheriff’s office. We’re here to work for the public but anything we can do to interact with the public and get the public to recognize us obviously helps the sheriff’s office,” Capps said. Lt. Capps first mentioned the prospect of starting a mounted patrol about a year ago. He said it gives the office another set of eyes during events and an increased presence. With Polk County being such an equestrian area, the office has had a lot of people interested in the idea, Capps said. Henderson County developed its unit 14 years ago. “We turned to Henderson County for a lot of their information because they have had a successful unit up there for quite a while,” Capps said. “As

for the kind of members we’re looking for, you are going to be representing the sheriff’s department so you have to be of good character.” Sue Pruitt, an equestrian trainer and instructor, will guide the volunteers through some basic checks for their and their horses’ skill levels. Capps said Pruitt would also work closely with Henderson County’s unit to mirror some of the procedures they use. An outside third party, Wallace Mooney, will provide the final clearance for horse and patrolman, Capps said. “This isn’t something I want to throw together and it be some rinky-dink kind of thing,” Capps said. “There is going to be quite of bit of training involved but I don’t want that to deter anyone.” Patrol members will continue to go through training at least once a month. Getting certified for the volunteer positions could likely take training two to three times a month.

is 300 times your own,” Cefalu said, “he is always seeking input from others and works hard to make everyone feel equal.” Cefalu congratulated Ratcliffe on receiving the honor, saying he will always be remembered as a key figure in mental health services. “It’s a real honor,” said Dr. Ratcliffe after accepting the award. “It’s a special honor because I knew Dr. Boyer very well.” Ratcliffe said he accepts the Norman Boyer award on behalf of the St. Luke’s geriatric psychiatry unit because if they did not exist, “I certainly would not be here.” Ratcliffe was joined at the luncheon by his team and his wife, Judy Ratcliffe, along with many community and professional people of Polk County. Polk County Mental Health Advisory Board Chair Kathy Romich introduced the program and presented a plaque to Dr. Ratcliffe. She said the Norman Boyer award originated to honor Polk County residents who promote mental health, developmental disabilities and substance abuse services in the community, just as Dr. Norman Boyer did in the 1970s. That was when Boyer began the first outpatient program in Columbus, which eventually moved to Tryon. Dr. Boyer was a psychiatrist who was employed with Broughton Hospital and was given the task to develop outpatient programs in Polk, Henderson and Rutherford counties, Romich said. “(Boyer) was instrumental in obtaining the old St. Luke’s Hospital [the Jervey-Palmer building in Tryon] and beginning the Meeting Place Senior Center,” Romich said. “He was on the Rutherford-Polk Mental Health, Developmental Disability and Substance Abuse Area Program Board

Barbecue festival seeking 100 additional volunteers Volunteer coordinator Allison Gillespie needs 100 more volunteers to assist during this year’s Blue Ridge Barbecue Festival. This is the 18th year of the event, which takes ideally 350 volunteers to run well, Gillespie told our staff. “We wouldn’t have a festival if it weren’t for the volunteers. We’d have long lines, impatient people – people wouldn’t get in as quickly,” Gillespie said. “The volunteers are crucial to putting this on. Anywhere from 15-20,000 people attend and this is completely run by volunteers.” This event is more than just a barbecue… it says a lot about the closeness of our community to see so many willing bodies come out to pick up trash or stand in the heat of June to sell tickets. Volunteers work four-hour shifts and are asked to check in about 30 minutes prior to their shift. Shifts run from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., 2 – 6 p.m. and 6 – 11 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. Volunteers receive T-shirts, free admission for both days and a food voucher that can be redeemed for a hot dog or a hamburger, a drink or water and chips. To find out more information or to fill out your volunteer application, visit or visit the chamber office in Lynn to submit a paper form. Gillespie asks you to leave the best contact number possible. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

On Wednesday, May 18, the Polk County Wolverines played host to the Shelby Golden Lions in the third round of the state 2A playoffs. The game went back and forth, with the Wolverines inches away from advancing to the next round. There was a lot of nervous tension in the air as the game began, but once the ball got rolling the Wolverines played as if it was just another game. Polk’s early momentum hit a snag as defender Natalie Hilbig injured her leg with 23:57 remaining in the first half and sat out the rest of the game. Despite this setback, the Polk offense stepped up and struck the first blow as Brittany Phipps scored 50 seconds after Hilbig went down, giving Polk a 1-0 lead. Polk’s offense continued to keep up the pressure

as several shots went just wide. Shelby was able to get back in the game with a shot from outside the box with 7:57 remaining in the half and the game went into the second half tied 1-1. At the start of the second half, the Golden Lions came out with a renewed offensive intensity and forced Polk’s keeper Donna Every to make several saves to keep the game tied at 1-1. As the result of a foul called inside Polk’s penalty area, Shelby was awarded a free kick. The Golden Lion’s striker didn’t miss and this proved to be the deciding goal in the game. Polk had many chances to equalize the score, including two shots that were mere inches off as they both hit the post, but the game ended with the score 2-1 in favor of the Golden Lions.

Lesesne Smith of Spartanburg started the Infants’ and Children’s Sanitarium in Saluda as a place where “anxious parents could get skilled attention, careful diet and treatment for their suffering children during the hot summer months.” Dr. Smith’s wife owned two houses in Saluda, so he had a base from which to operate.

Dr. Smith also had under his care the Spartanburg Baby Hospital, established in the same year. From an original eight-

room cottage, the sanitarium grew to 12 cottages, a central dining room, a diet kitchen, an assembly hall and examination

and treatment rooms. Dr. Smith, along with Dr. Frank Howard Richardson of New York and (Continued on page 14)

Seminar Hall

• Tour of Homes (continued from page 13)

Black Mountain, returning from a meeting of the Southern Medical Association, decided that general practitioners needed to be trained in childcare. From the hospital in Spartanburg and the sanitarium in Saluda grew the idea of a Southern Pediatric Seminar, where from 1921 – 1959, it is estimated that between 3,000 - 4,000 doctors from all over the country and several foreign countries came to Smith Hill in Saluda to study the latest in pediatrics during two weeks every summer. When the seminar closed in 1959, the property was divided among Dr. Smith’s four children. Some of the buildings were torn down, but the ones that remain are now permanent homes and all but one on the tour are still owned and now lived in by granddaughters and other relatives. The houses have all been restored in the last five years. Aurora Lodge (Hamer House) was the first house on Smith Hill and was a summer house for Colonel Sloan of Charleston. One of his granddaughters, Clara Smith Carter, now owns the property. The high-ceilinged home has four fireplaces. Babies and their

jbtrees - page 10

nurses stayed here. The house has gone through several renovations through the years. Vivian Luke of Gainesville has been instrumental in the interior design of many of the rooms. Cameron was used as the kitchen for Aurora Lodge, and the help stayed here. Seminar Hall was the last building erected on Smith Hill. The many windowed lecture hall was designed to accommodate student chairs, and a raised platform at one end provided every student a clear view of the lecturer. Dr. Keitt Smith gave the building to his daughter, Lesesne Dickson, and her husband, Gene and they converted it to a summer cottage. In 2000, they sold it to Lynn and Mike Cass, who began living there fulltime in 2009. Tickets for the stroll are available at city hall, Historic Thompson’s Store and Heartwood Gallery in Saluda. Parking is available at the First Baptist Church at the corner of Carolina and Henderson Streets, and shuttle vans will be available to take you to Smith Hill for the tour.

Tracey Schmidt to perform afternoon of poetry and music at The Book Shelf Tracey Schmidt, a past resident of Tryon, will read from her book of poetry, “I Have Fallen in Love with the World,” on Saturday, May 28 beginning at 3 p.m. Schmidt will be accompanied by a local musician and she will lead a poetry writing workshop from 4 – 6 p.m. following the reading. Both events are free and open to the public. “I began writing when I lived on a 100-acre horse farm in Tryon - I was very moved by the beauty of the pair of hawks near my house, the herd of deer that lived in the woods,” said Schmidt. “I would find their nesting spots and their trails, and sometimes they would come into the fields by my house and gaze at me with their enormous, shy eyes.” The event at The Book Shelf is a preview of Schmidt’s talents, which include photographs that will be displayed at the Tryon Fine Arts Center later this summer. Schmidt’s poetry

book, published in December by Logosophia Books, includes many of her photographs. For those interested in signing up for a lengthier poetry course, Schmidt will teach a four-week class this summer at Montford Books in Asheville, followed by a fall creativity class.

TR&HC awards scholarships Six years ago, at the urging of board of director member Nancy Z. Wilson, the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club created a scholarship fund for worthy equestrianoriented graduating seniors and those attending institutions of higher education. As criteria, all applicants must be involved in equine activities in the Polk County/ Upstate region. This program is in addition to the TR&HC scholarship available through the Polk County Community Foundation. The Tryon Riding & Hunt Club Scholarship winner, administered through the Polk County Community Foundation, is Micah Parsons. The Tryon Riding & Hunt Club also recognizes Megan Betzel, a senior at Landrum High School; Madeleine Fahnley, attending UNC – Asheville;

and Ashley Monk, a rising sophomore at Gardner – Webb, as the recipients of the 2011 TR&HC Educational Scholarship. The three students selected will receive a portion from the $5,000 scholarship fund. All three exemplify the spirit of the award by knowing that equestrian activities teach hard work, dedication, time management, responsibility and teamwork. The TR&HC scholarship selection committee consists of Shelley Griffiths, Sara Bell and Ryan Whitson. The TR&HC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax deductible. For more information, call 828-859-6109 or mail donations to: 289 South Trade Street, Tryon, N.C. 28782 with “scholarship” marked in the memo line. – article submitted by Laura Weicker

May is Mental Health Month, and Mental Health America wants to raise awareness about the one in four American adults who live with a diagnosable, treatable mental health condition and make people aware that they can go on to live full and productive lives. Mental Health Month was created more than 50 years ago by Mental Health America to educate the community about mental health conditions and the importance of mental wellness. One theme of this year’s activities, “Do More for 1 in 4,” is a call to action to help the more than 54 million adult Americans who have a diagnosable mental health condition. “We want everyone to know that while mental health and substance use conditions are

common, they are extremely treatable and individuals go on to recover and lead full and productive lives,” said David Shern, Ph.D., president and CEO of Mental Health America. Dr. Shern said too many people living with a mental health condition never seek or receive help because of stigma, lack of information, cost or lack of health care insurance coverage – as high as 50 percent. “We need to change that,” he said. “It’s important that everyone have access to treatment and services because we have a tremendous amount of knowledge about how to identify, treat and even prevent mental health conditions.” Dr. Shern noted there are many programs available in the

other restrictions are no longer allowed for mental health and substance use treatment. “The parity law and the new health reform law recognize what we have known for a number of years: mental health is integral to our overall health and well-being,” Shern said. “Mental health is a major factor in all aspects of our lives. We see it play out in our relationships, in our performance at work or school and in health issues. All of us live with these daily threats to our mental health, whether it is major tragedies or common life changes.” Dr. Shern said it could be someone coping with the stress of care giving or divorce or losing a loved one. “Sometimes, people are dealing with depression associated with a chronic disease such as diabetes, cancer or hypertension. Or it could be a veteran struggling with the

Habitat ranks as sixth largest homebuilder on ‘Builder’ top 100 list Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity’s work to provide affordable housing in Polk County and the Landrum area has helped Habitat for Humanity International rank as the sixth largest homebuilder on the top 100 list of “Builder Magazine.” With 6,032 closings in 2010, this is the second

time Habitat for Humanity has placed in the top 10. “Our placement on the Builder 100 list is a testament to what can be accomplished when people work together,” said Larry Gluth, senior vice president of U.S. and Canada for Habitat for Humanity International. “So many families

in the United States and around the world face an incredible need for affordable housing, and this need only increases during challenging economic times. Habitat works every day to help these families, and we are grateful for the generosity of our donors, volunteers and advocates who have joined our efforts to help families obtain safe, decent and affordable homes and to strengthen communities.” “Since 1984 we have built more than  63 homes,” said Manfred Walter, Thermal Belt Habitat’s president. “We are thrilled that our work to pro-

vide affordable housing has contributed to Habitat’s ranking as the sixth largest builder in the United States. We are proud to help families obtain affordable housing and we thank our supporters for their commitment to helping families in need.” The Builder 100 list is an annual compilation of the largest homebuilders in the country. In 2009, Habitat for Humanity ranked eighth on the list with 5,294 closings, marking the first time the organization made it to the top 10. – article submitted by Mike Patterson
