PCHS grads celebrate Many of you replied about the operation dates of the old Butler’s Dairy, but Kenneth Walker of Spartanburg offered quite a bit of information. Walker worked there as a teenager from 1952-1954. He said, “Butler’s Dairy operated in Tryon in the 1930s, 1940s and closed in the 1950s. My father (George Walker) worked there after he returned from the army in 1945. I also worked there… and was still working there when they sold to Carolina Diary of Shelby in 1954. It was operated by Nora Butler and was located on the hill between the RR and A&P store, where a bank is presently located. The Butlers lived about five houses from the dairy.”

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

Mixed reactions at Polk budget hearing by Leah Justice

Polk County commissioners heard opinions for and against the county’s proposed budget for the 2011-12 fiscal year during a public hearing held Monday, June 13. Although more than 50 people attended the meeting, only seven residents spoke. Some residents said a tax decrease proposed

by commissioner Tom Pack is significant and urged commissioners to adopt Pack’s budget, while other speakers said commissioners should stay on their current track and keep the county in the black. Keith Holbert asked what commissioners’ definition of fiscal responsibility is, asking if it

means reducing debt, eliminating debt, keeping unemployment and inflation under control or balancing the budget, among other definitions. He said $10 per taxpayer may be described as insignificant when speaking of a tax cut, but taxes are typically raised (Continued on page 7)

Quilted art: Landrum Quilt Guild hosts 11th bi-annual show by Samantha Hurst

The 140 quilts that filled Landrum Middle School’s gymnasium last weekend appeared more as works of art than something thrown on a bed to keep your feet warm. “There are some that just speak to you,” said Ellen Henderson, cochair of this year’s Landrum Quilt Show. “Many people are drawn to the traditional ones because they are familiar, because they remind them of their grandmother and watching her quilt.” The Landrum Quilt Guild entertained hundreds of quilters and quilt admirers Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 9-11, at its (Continued on page 4)

11th bi-annual quilt show. This show is a “People’s Choice” award show, according to Henderson. Each attendee received a ballot and was asked to cast a vote for their favorites. First-time show participant Eva Nicklaw captured Best in Show with her “A Bit of Biltmore” quilt. The quilt also won first place in the large appliqued wall hangings category and a vendor ribbon. The Landrum Quilt Show originated in the early 90s. In 2009, 1,200 people came through over three days. This year the show drew people from across the region and a few from as far away as Illinois and Ohio. Mary Ellen Wuerfel of Landrum said she was delighted to bring her daughter Deb Stanko to the show. Stanko flew in from Cleveland, Ohio, for the weekend. “I’m just so happy to have her

here with me, I can’t tell you,” Wuerfel said. “I’ve passed all my sewing on to her. It’s really therapeutic and I want her to experience that, too.” Wuerfel passed a family tradition that reaches back generations, as many quilting families do, to Stanko. “She’s passed down all of my grandmother’s unfinished projects and that’s what has really gotten me started with quilting,” Stanko said. “We came here today because I really wanted to learn more and see what others have done.” Quilts offer so much room for creativity, Henderson said. Among the 140 quilts on display at this show were those with travel themes, religious themes, holiday pictorials, animals, floral images and traditional geometric patterns. Quilts varied from the strictly traditional to art quilts and quilts with elaborate embellishments. Some of the quilts were handstitched while others were cre-

Winners in Landrum Quilt Show The following quilts and quilters won awards at the Landrum Quilt Show held June 9-11 at the Landrum Middle School. • “A Bit of Biltmore,” by Eva Nicklaw, won best of show. It also won first place in the large appliqued wall hangings and a vendor ribbon. This is Nicklaw’s first quilt show. She reportedly pieces everything by hand – not using a sewing machine. • “Civil War Splendor,” an original design by Sandy Wolf, won a first place in the long-arm quilted bed quilt category, along with two vendor ribbons and a ribbon from the Landrum Area Business Association. • Sybil Radius received six awards: first place for art quilts; first place and vendor ribbon for lap quilts; second place for large appliqued wall quilts; and two third places for quilted articles and large pieced wall quilts. • Debi Miller also received six awards: two second places, small appliqued wall quilts and lap quilts; third place, machinequilted bed quilts, two vendor ribbons and a sponsor ribbon from the Spartanburg County Parks Commission. • Rita Fowler won two first place ribbons: machine-quilted bed quilts and quilted articles. • Carol Hediger received a first place in the hand-quilted

in small increments. Holbert said he plans to look into the county’s budget and publish items through the media to keep residents aware. Debbie Arceneaux said she finds it astonishing that some think $10 per citizen is nothing. Pack’s tax decrease would have meant a tax decrease of a little more than $11 per year on a $100,000 home. Arceneaux said $10 for some might buy a nice meal, while it might enable some citizens to afford milk or make a difference in a utility bill. “We need to take control of what we have now and stop the ridiculous spending we are doing in Polk County,” said Arceneaux. Margaret Johnson said things have been managed well over the past few years. She said she doesn’t agree that the county’s spending has been out of control as some people are saying. Johnson also said Polk County’s tax rate is low both nationally and locally. “Things I’ve read about the county manager’s budget seem very responsible,” said Johnson. “They seem to be focused on our future needs.” Myron Yoder urged commissioners to keep employee health insurance deductibles at $500. The proposed budget raises employee deductibles to $1,000 beginning on Jan. 1, 2012. David Maxwell asked where the county’s leadership is and spoke about the county’s comprehensive plan and unified development ordinance. “We’re not going to get there with inconsequential gifts,” Maxwell said. Maxwell said he appreciates commissioner Pack and agrees someone needs to keep watch over the budget, but “let’s not lose sight.” “Remember, we’re the jewel in Western North Carolina,” Maxwell said. “Let’s stay on that track and fulfill our own

commitment.” Earl Thompson said he agreed with Maxwell and told commissioners he doesn’t want to see the county “get in the red.” He urged commissioners to keep a solid fund balance, and said people respect and support county manager Ryan Whitson. Thompson said he wants the board to look out for the county’s needs and to look out for the schools. “The other thing I would like is to see ya’ll work together a little bit better,” said Thompson. “There’s no reason you can’t come out in the paper saying you agree on something.” Betty Garniss said Polk County’s taxes are low and commissioners should stick with what they know. Garniss said residents trust the people who are spending the county’s money and people want security. Commissioners thanked residents for coming and for their comments. Commissioners Ray Gasperson and Renée McDermott all said they are happy with the budget the county manager has proposed. Commissioners Tom Pack and Ted Owens, however, urged commissioners to consider Pack’s proposal. Pack said his budget does not cut into the county’s fund balance; it will actually add $250,000 to $500,000 at the end of the year. McDermott said she can’t figure out Pack’s basis for saying he’s not taking money from fund balance. McDermott also said commissioners would like to give employees in the sheriff ’s office raises, but they have said if employees will gain their BLET (Basic Law Enforcement Training), it will automatically put them on the same footing and pay as deputies. Commissioners are scheduled to adopt the new budget, which includes no tax increases, during a regular meeting on Monday, June 20 beginning at 3 p.m. at the Womack building in Columbus.

Keep your cool this summer With temperatures soaring up into the 90s even this early in June, school letting out and pools opening, people of all ages need to take real precautions against the heat of summer. Our “Diet & Exercise” columnist, David Crocker, made good points in his column last Friday about understanding heat exhaustion and heat stroke and how to avoid either condition. Families need to be extra cautious when getting out and about on a daily basis with kids in the sun. We all seem more likely to lather up with sunblock when we’re headed to the beach, but how many of us do so just to take a hike in the woods or play on the playground? Kids, adults and seniors alike need to be wary of catching too many rays in order to protect their skin from sun damage. We all need to also consider the amount of time we’re spending in the heat of the day. Without good hydration and a break now and then, many of us living busy outdoor lifestyles could find ourselves susceptible to heat exhaustion. Remember to relish in the beauty of early summer-like conditions but in the safest ways possible - grab your sunscreen, a good hat to shade your face and a huge glass of water!

Polk High School coaches to host future Wolverines baseball camp by Daniel Hecht

Local boys and girls ages 5 through 11 who dream of one day taking the field at Polk County High School will get their chance next week, as the coaching staff of the Wolverines baseball program hosts the 13th Annual Future Wolverines Baseball Camp. The camp, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to noon Monday, June 20 through Thursday, June 23 at the Polk County High School baseball field, will be headed up by Ty Stott, head coach of the Wolverines baseball program for the past 15 years. Joining Stott will be Polk assistant coaches Billy Alm and Josh McEntire, as well as various Wolverine baseball players. Campers will be introduced to several offensive and defensive drills, as well as hitting stations and contests such as throwing accuracy and home run derby. They will also be introduced

5/31/11 9:13 AM

to the Wolverine practice system, which gives campers repetition in fielding, throwing and hitting. Parents are welcome to be in attendance any time. The cost to attend the camp for the entire week is just a $65 donation to the Wolverine baseball program, or just $50 each for two young ballplayers from the same household. A $20 daily rate is also available for future all-stars who cannot spend the entire week at camp but would still like to attend on select days. Future Wolverines will need a glove, hat, shoes or cleats, and sunscreen (a limited supply of gloves will be available for players to borrow as well). Concessions will be available at the camp; parents may set up a bank/charge account for any day of camp or for the entire week. For more information, contact Coach Ty Stott at 864-680-2537.

Henry von der Lieth

Henry von der Lieth was born on George Washington’s birthday in 1931 to Heinrich and Marie (Schlichtmann) von der Lieth in Wilmington, New Hanover County, N.C. He was baptized into the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit as an infant at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Wilmington, where he was confirmed in the Evangelical Lutheran faith in 1945. His father owned a store in Wilmington called Henry’s Central News, where young Henry and sister, Catherine, worked in the family business. After graduating from New Hanover High School in 1949, Henry worked in a grocery store, stocking shelves and delivering groceries. When Henry enlisted in the United States Navy in 1952, it is not surprising that he would follow his father’s footsteps as he reached the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer “Store Keeper.” After five years of active duty, Henry continued to serve his country in the reserves. From 1957 to 1990, Henry worked for the Atlantic Coastline Railroad in the payroll department, living in Jacksonville, Fla., most of those years. Never married, he cared for his mother until her passing in 1985 and did much to care for the Lord’s little flock at Trinity until his passing. He is survived by his sister, Catherine (Donald - deceased) Dawson of Green Creek; his nephew, Donald Dawson and wife, Lynn, with Philip, Cory and Lori (husband, Joel) of Wilmington; his two nieces, Debra with son, Neil Crawford, and Donna Hall with husband, Kenny, and daughters, Kendall and Kristen, all of Green Creek. Henry was active in the Lutheran Church his entire life, but never more so than in the years at Trinity Lutheran Church, Tryon, where he was a charter member of the Missouri Synod Lutheran congregation since its founding in 1989 to the present. There he served as chairman, elder, sacristan, doorman, acolyte and sound man, among other things (simultaneously). He also was the congregational delegate to district conventions. Henry was a dedicated student of the Holy

Scriptures and an ardent defender of the Christian faith, committed to passing on to future generations the faith received from the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ being the cornerstone. His delight was to hear the word and to receive the blessed sacrament of Christ’s true body and blood. Henry confessed faith alone in Jesus Christ, God’s son, for the forgiveness of sins. He awaited confidently Christ’s coming, for he knew whom he had believed. He fell asleep in Jesus just after midnight on Pentecost Sunday, June 12, 2011 at the age of 80 years, three months and 21 days. The funeral service for Henry von der Lieth will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, Tryon, at 11 a.m. Thursday, June 16, with visitation from 10-11 a.m. A meal will be served following the service. Henry’s remains will be laid to rest Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. in Greenlawn Cemetery, Wilmington, next to those of his parents, until the day of the resurrection of all flesh. An online guest register is available at McFarland Funeral Chapel, Tryon.

HandMade in America information session in Tryon Friday, June 17 Mountain BizWorks AgBiz Program is sponsoring an information session presented by Judi Jetson of HandMade in America. The event will be held Friday, June 17 at the Agriculture Economic Development Center, located at 156 School Road in Mill Spring, from 10 a.m. – noon. Judi Jetson, HandMade’s director of creative economies, will present the subject, “Growing the Fiber Economy in Western North Carolina.” Jetson is currently seeking input and involvment from fiber artists, retailers of craft and fiber, producers and processors, supply makers, machinery and tool makers, waste managers, small and custom mills and manufacturers, cut and sew co-ops, galleries and schools. Mountain Bizworks’ objective is to help connect the fiber community in Polk County to the resources that HandMade in America offers. “As part of the Ag-Biz Program,” says Jo Ann MiksaBlackwell, Ag-Biz program manager, “We support the mission of HandMade in America and the connection fiber has to agriculture.” HandMade in America, a non-profit economic development group based in Asheville, N.C., has started an initiative to grow the regional fiber economy by focusing on craft artists and small businesses. Based on two basic regional development strategies - adding value to locally harvested materials and substituting local products for imports - they have identified eight areas for attention: • Develop an on-line directory of sources, makers and users of fiber, including – Fiber artists

– Guilds and asssociations – Research and trade organizations – Schools and colleges with fiber programs – Retail stores and boutiques carrying local fiber and locally crafted garments – Fashion and home furnishing designers – Local manufacturers and custom mills • Develop an online calendar for events and classes • Estimate and track the size of the fiber economy • Organize more textile shows • Start a textile study group • Study feasibility for a community dye studio and textile center • Fiber entrepreneurship – identify money for new fiber-related ventures • Advocate for wearing and making garments from the local Fibershed (150-mile radius) If you are interested in becoming part of the fiber community in WNC, organizers invite you to mark your calendar and plan to attend the information meeting on Friday, June 17 at the Agriculture Economic Development Center from 10 a.m. – noon to tour the facility and talk fiber. For more information, contact Jo Ann Miksa-Blackwell, Ag-Biz program manager, at 828-919-1000. This Ag-Biz project is supported by the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, USDA, Grant # 2010-4940021817. – article submitted by Jo Ann Miksa-Blackwell

St. Luke’s Hospital honors volunteers for service In 1978, St. Luke’s Hospital’s print shop was born after the hospital administrator asked for a volunteer to make copies (approximately 32,000 copies were needed each month). Today, the group of volunteers in the print shop contributes to the hospital by running the in-house print shop by printing forms, business cards, training materials and many of the hospital’s printed materials. St. Luke’s Hospital recently

Geisler named to dean’s list at Northeastern University LARL-028884 Columbus resident Stefanie Geisler, a Northeastern University student majoring in journalism, was recently named to the University’s dean’s list for the spring semester, which ended in May 2011. To achieve the dean’s list distinction, students must carry a full program of at least four courses, have a quality point average of 3.5 or greater out of a possible 4.0 and carry no single grade lower than a C- during the course of their college career. Each student receives a letter of commendation and congratula-

tion from their college dean. In addition to achieving distinction through the dean’s list, Geisler is a member of the University Honors Program, which offers high caliber students the chance to further hone their studies and interests, live in special interest on-campus housing and participate in one or two honors courses each term. Invitation into the honors program is highly competitive and students must maintain a high GPA and strong commitment to campus leadership to remain a part. Currently,

Geisler is among some 1,400 students involved in Northeastern’s honors program. Northeastern University is a global, experiential research university.

Knives by Gerry Drew. (photo submitted)

“Forging gives a person much more flexibility in designing and building a knife. There are bends, twists and tapers that would never be possible with stock removal,” Drew said. Drew’s knives are hard working tools that have been used all over the world by hunters, fishermen and campers. Many of his knives are purchased by collectors who are only interested in the art of his knives and never cut a thing. Drew’s knives are available at the Tryon Arts and Crafts gift shop. The workshop will run Saturday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon – 5 p.m. Students need to bring protective eyewear, leather gloves and earplugs (if desired) and should wear leather shoes and old clothes. Advance registration is required. For more information about the instructor or workshop, contact Tryon Arts

Tryon Arts and Crafts School will host a knife-making workshop with blade smith Gerry Drew on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26. The goal of this class is to bring students to a basic understanding of knife design and workmanship in the forge. They will learn to forge, heat treat, temper and grind knife blades that can be attached to a bone, antler or wood handle. By the end of the weekend, students will forge several hunting knife blades and create at least one fully functional tool with a pleasant design and artistic qualities. Instructor Gerry Drew has been making knives for more than 25 years, using the stock removal method (start with a flat piece of steel and grind off everything that doesn’t look like a knife). Recently, after attending a forging class at Tryon Arts and Crafts, he developed an interest in the forged knife.
