Station 187 Childhood fascination lives on for model train group members by Samantha Hurst

Young Walt Predmore starred eyes wide at each minute piece of a modular train as it chugged along right at his eye level Saturday, May 28. He scurried around the elevated track following the train as it navigated by trees, past other locomotives, through a mountain tunnel and by a miniature downtown area. “I’m following the train,” Walt yelled to his sister, Amelia. “Look, I’m following the train.” Predmore, the grandson of (Continued on page 6)

Tuesday School students were seen lined up outside Buck’s Pizza Wednesday, June 1. The school held its Starving Artist Art Show for preschoolers that day. Parents purchased art for five dollars and the money was then used to buy each child a pizza. The 3 and 4 year olds took their pizza to the park for a picnic.

Polk to give $100k more to schools State shortfall threatens preschool funds by Leah Justice

Polk County commissioners agreed this week to find another $100,000 to help fund next year’s More-at-Four Preschool program. Polk County Schools Superintendent Bill Miller asked commissioners for the

additional money during the county’s meeting Monday, June 6 at the Saluda School. The county previously agreed to give the school system an additional $300,000 in next year’s budget as a result of other state budget cuts. Miller also told commissioners that the school system is looking at an ad-

ditional loss of $550,000 for the 2012-13 budget because of state cuts and warned that even more funding will be needed from the county in future years. It is expected that the county may have to fund an additional $200,000 to $300,000 in fiscal year 2012-13 because $550,000 of one-time stimulus money has been budgeted for 2011-12 to cover the state budget cuts. The stimulus money will not be available in future years. Miller said Polk County’s More-at-Four Preschool program serves approximately 150 preschool students and has been in place for 10 years.

Capt.

The North Carolina legislature is currently considering a massive restructuring and reduction of the More-at-Four program, which offers funding for working families. Miller said the program funding is in jeopardy and the school system would like to tell parents whether they can enroll their children in preschool next year. “We have parents all over the county wondering about their 4-year-old (next year),” Miller said. “We are kind of stuck in limbo. It’s become a difficult situation for our parents and for us.” The school system plans to use Title 1 funding to help cover a possible $250,000 cut in funding and is asking the county for (Continued on page 4)

The Columbus and Tryon police departments arrested an Inman, S.C., woman in connection with using fraudulent prescriptions at pharmacies in Columbus and Tryon. On Monday, June 6, 2011, Marci Lane Balkind, 39, of Inman, S.C., was arrested and charged with eight felonies, according to police reports. Balkind was charged with three counts of uttering a forged instrument, two counts of trafficking opium or heroin, two counts of obtaining controlled substances by fraud or forgery and one count of attempting to obtain a controlled substance by fraud or forgery, according to Columbus Police Chief Chris Beddingfield. “Cooperation between the two law enforcement agencies, along with diligent practices by the local pharmacies, made these arrests possible,” Beddingfield said. “Prescription drug abuse is one of the largest problems facing our society today.”

another $100,000. The preschool budget has also been reduced by one classroom next year. A teacher is retiring and Miller said the teacher will not be replaced, meaning next year there will be eight preschool classrooms compared to nine classrooms this year. Next year there will be three classrooms at Forbes Preschool/ Tryon Elementary, three at Polk Central and one each at Saluda and Sunny View. The Head Start program contributes more than $600,000 to the county’s preschool program to fund low-income students’ tuition. Miller said normally Head Start funding also allows qualifying 3-year-olds to attend preschool for two years, but next year Polk County will first focus on 4-year-olds. The program is also funded partially by parents, who pay $65 per week for tuition. The total

Commissioners Ted Owens and Tom Pack expressed concern about taking funding from the economic development department. Pack said he’d prefer to take the $100,000 out of the fund balance. Commissioners Ray Gasperson, Renée McDermott and Cindy Walker said they’d prefer to go with Whitson’s recommendation. The county will hold a budget public hearing on Monday, June 13 at 7 p.m. in the Womack building in Columbus. Commissioners will have the opportunity to make changes to the budget prior to adopting the final budget on June 20. The new fiscal year will begin on July 1.

Ann and Richard Predmore of Campobello, was visiting the Landrum Depot with his family during the Landrum Home and Garden Stroll. Inside the Depot, about a dozen men from the newly formed Station 187 Model Rail Road Club gathered to share their love of model trains with the community. “That’s the kind of reaction we’ve seen all day and it’s what we hope to continue seeing,” said club organizer Roland Stadelmann. “The aim is for something like this to be a serious attraction, something that brings people to a city.” Station 187 shaped rather quickly. “The idea was put on paper six weeks ago,” Stadelmann said. “Hammer and nails were put together beginning about four weeks ago.” The group connected with Melanie Jennings with the Landrum Business Association and put together a plan to display not even a tenth of their personal collections; members possess more than 500 locomotives combined. This gang met up for the first time at the Landrum Library more than a month ago just to

Fellow member Clem Cornay of Lake Lanier felt the same way. “Talk about moths to a flame,” Cornay said. “It was great to be around other men who had the same love for trains as I did.” Group leader Stadelmann and his longtime friend Markus Weller both grew up in Europe –

Goliath is the archetypal account of those struggles. Goliath stood more than 10 feet tall, was fully armored and trained to be a killer. David had only his tunic, a sling and a bag of stones, but David also had faith in God and the trust to act bravely on that faith. The result was a stunning defeat for the Philistines and a new beginning for an entire nation. Admittedly it requires a huge leap of the imagination to go from David the King to Dusty the Peke, but, please, bear with me (pun intended). How is it that a 9 pound Pekingese could drive off a 200 pound bear? Mr. Bear could certainly have gobbled him up in one bite. I believe – in Dusty’s tiny way – he had faith that

There are many times in our lives when we face adversity. Sometimes it is easy to feel frightened and overwhelmed by what lies in front of us. Next time that happens to you remember David and Dusty and be comforted in your heart and mind by the image of a tiny dog driving off a bear. I hope it brings you a smile and the courage to remember that a little faith and lot of audacity can make conquerors of even the least of us.

Christian Stevenson, Substitute Trustee, will expose for sale at public auction on the 17th day of June, 2011, at 11:00 a.m., at the appropriate place for foreclosure sales at the Polk County Courthouse (front steps at the Courthouse Door), 1 Courthouse Square, Columbus, North Carolina, the real property (including any improvements thereon) which is more particularly described on Exhibit A attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference. This sale shall not include any portion of the real property that has been released by recorded releases or any real property described in the Deed of Trust which is not listed and included on Exhibit A attached hereto.

TDDA brings back ‘Morning Coffee Updates’ TDDA is bringing back its popular “Morning Coffee Update” starting on Tuesday, June 14 at 7:30 a.m. The general public and business owners are encouraged to attend these regular coffees to learn what TDDA projects are in the works. Town officials will also attend. The first coffee will be held at the Tryon Fine Arts Center in the Mahler Room. The TDDA coffee was a popular and effective means of communicating for TDDA several years ago when the first and second phases of “Streetscape” were in progress. Similar in format to the Chamber After-Hours events, all who are involved in and interested in downtown Tryon are invited to come and network and enjoy coffee before heading out for the day’s work. The coffee will be hosted by a different business or non-profit each month. The TDDA board is working on many projects, including downtown design and improvements, development of businesses downtown, filling empty buildings, promoting events for downtown, sponsoring concerts in Rogers Park and working in concert with public-private entities to enhance Tryon. – article submitted by Wanda May

Prepared down to every last detail In the last article we discussed the promotion for your special events. In this article we will talk about the final countdown before your special event. The final countdown before the event can sometimes be overwhelming. I recommend that you purchase a large three ring binder and organize it, down to the very last detail. This will help you tremendously at the event in case you need to find an important document, email, etc. In addition to the large binder, ensure that you check everything twice. This will help with last minute details and help you sleep the night before the event. When double-checking everything, go back through your event checklist to ensure every task has been completed. You also want to remind the staff and volunteers the day before the event what time they should arrive on site. Make sure to get cell phone numbers for staff and volunteers, just in case you need a last-minute bag of ice or bottle of wine picked up on their way

to the site. Another important item to double and/or triple check is to make sure anyone who will be speaking at the event has their script and you have plenty of extra copies of the scripts in the large binder. I also advise having a lastminute needs checklist. With special events you can never predict what will happen. Examples of items on my list are as follows: contact list, the large binder, checks for vendors, needle and thread, safety pins, staple gun, scotch tape, markers, paper clips, post-its and pens. Of course, for those of you who know me, these are just a few of the items on my one-page checklist. If you would like the entire list, please contact me. I may have already said this in a prior article, but one of the most important last minute details is registration. The regis-

tration of a special event will set the “nature” for the entire event, so making sure you spend extra time in setting up the registration will pay off. A rule of thumb is to set up the registration area at least two hours in advance of the special event. When setting up this area, keep in mind everything that is happening during the event. If you are planning on having assigned seating, ensure you have large pieces of paper that the volunteers can write the seat numbers on and guests will be able to keep up with the pieces of paper until they reach their table. We all know the first place guests will go to when they leave the registration table is not the table they were assigned, it is the bar. Other items to keep in mind is how to handle party crashers and making sure the registration volunteers are equipped to handle money properly the night of the event. The next article will be the last in the special event series and will focus on celebrating after the event.

Pea Ridge Baptist Church invites New Hope families to ‘Hometown Nazareth’ Baptist holds A summer family event called “Hometown Nazareth: Where Jesus was a Kid” will be hosted at Pea Ridge Baptist Church from Sunday, June 12 – Friday, June 17. Families will step back in time at “Hometown Nazareth,” exploring what it was like to live in the town where Jesus grew up. Kids and adults will participate in a Bible-times marketplace, sing songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Jesus’ mom, Mary, and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s word. Everyone will also learn to look for evidence of God all

around them through something called “God Sightings.” Each day concludes at celebration – a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.  Kids and adults at “Hometown Nazareth” will join nearly a million participants reaching out to at-risk kids through a hand-on mission project called Operation Kid-to-Kid, in which families will paint backpacks to send to needy children in Latin America.  Hometown Nazareth will run from 5:15 for the meal and 6 for VBS - 8:30 p.m. each day.  For more information, call 828-863-4142.  ­– article submitted by Ann Carswell

Ron Cliff will teach a course titled “Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History” starting Wednesday, June 15 at Isothermal Community College’s Polk Center in Columbus. “Many myths exist, but this one belies reality. Women aren’t documented in history because, simply, men wrote the history books and thought highly of themselves. Women were involved in many activities outside and beyond the kitchen. This lecture looks into the footnotes and discovers, not surprisingly, what a lot of women did, but were not supposed to do, like write, paint and govern. These materials
