Wicked Que BBQ champs Bos Vining called to tell us about her sighting of a black bear in her backyard in Tryon. She said the bear broke a bird feeder and tore the screening on her back porch in order to get to bags of bird feed. Bos said she has lived in the home since 1968 and has never seen a bear there before.

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


Jeff Campbell with Wicked Que displays his award for winning the grand championship at the Blue Ridge BBQ Festival. The team also took home $2,500. This was the first time Wicked Que competed in Tr yon’s festival. Earlier this year, the team, from Watkinsville, Ga.,

scored a perfect 180 in brisket at Kings Mountain, N.C. They won two grand championships in Georgia last year, one at Winder and the other at Young Harris, where they had a perfect 180 in chicken. Their team slogan is “Live fast, smoke slow!” (photo by Leah Justice)

month undercover operation conducted by the sheriff’s office called Operation Pill Sweep. Also arrested in Operation Pill Sweep recently were Alvin Keith McKinney, of 65 Mill Run Rd., Mill Spring, and Marlon Shane Ruff, of 190 Ruff Acres, Mill Spring. The sheriff’s office charged McKinney with felony manufacturing a schedule VI controlled substance and possession of growing paraphernalia, according to police reports. Ruff was charged with selling and delivering marijuana and maintaining a vehicle to deliver marijuana, according to reports. Sheriff Hill said the operation continues and more arrests will be made over the next few weeks.

Tommy Lee Johnson

Marlon Shane Ruff

The operation has involved the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Veteran’s Affairs and the Buncombe County, N.C., and Spartanburg County, S.C. sheriff’s offices. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office estimates it has purchased approximately 2,000 illegal prescription pills during

the undercover operation over the past nine months. A total of more than 20 suspects are expected to be arrested. Hill said charges relating to many other drugs besides illegal prescription medications have been issued, including cocaine, heroin, opium and marijuana. A couple of suspects

have also been charged with child abuse, because of illegal transactions allegedly done in the presence of children, according to Hill. McKinney was released on a written promise, Ruff was given $10,000 bond and Johnson was given a $500,000 bond, according to the sheriff’s office.

Getting summer on track with Tryon concert series Swayback Sisters perform Friday by Jessy Taylor

Under the lush trees of Roger’s Park, locals can yet again discover the perfect location to bring a picnic, sit back and relax to tunes offered up by a one-ofa-kind summer music experience. Sponsored by local businesses and individuals, Summer Tracks is back for its 11th year - with good reason. Peter Eisenbrown, who orchestrates Summer Tracks, said the beautiful setting and professional sounds make this event special each year. “We’re so lucky to have this park in town,” Eisenbrown said. “We’ve put together six strong shows. So come on out, try to be generous and just have a good time.” (Continued on page 6)

Mark Bumgarner

• Summer Tracks (continued from page 4)

The array of musicians lined up for this edition kicks off on June 17 with Mark Bumgarner, warming up for the Swayback Sisters. Bumgarner combines the folk rock timbre of the 60s and 70s with Americana and bluegrass. This year, Bumgarner will perform with his wife, Aimee. The Swayback Sisters normally include “sisters” Lindsay Wojcik, Laura Blackley and Nikki Talley. Talley will be absent from the stage for this show and the group will instead be joined by Craig Larimer of Modo and Oso Rey of Soulgrass Rebellion. Organizers said each member is an accomplished artist on his or her own, so you can be sure the combined forces of this band are set to deliver a stunning musical encounter. On the first of July, Rogers Park will present the Steel Wheels. This four-piece group has often been compared to such bands as the Avett Brothers and

Old Crow Medicine Show. In trying to convey their talent, Eisenbrown said, “They’re so good. They’ve really got it to make it big.” July 15 brings the Nouveaux Honkies. If their name doesn’t grab your attention, their music certainly will, Eisenbrown said. Their coalescence of blues, swing and early country earned the group the honor of best roots music CD by the Palm Beach Post in Florida. On July 29, Summer Tracks features another double show with The Carburetors and Tom Fisch. The Carburetors include Mark Warwick, Billy Munoz and Tryon’s own Jay Goree. These guys performed in Tryon on April Fool’s Day this year, so their music will undoubtedly be a familiar favorite. Tom Fisch is a new addition to the Summer Tracks lineup. Fisch is capable of a diverse range of material, though his influence swings towards the warm style of John Prine or Doc Watson. Gigi Dover and the Big Love take the stage on Aug.12 and they’re an established crowd pleaser at Summer Tracks concerts. Though their music is predominately southern, they weave in reverberations of jazz, rock and R&B to produce a piquant sound that is described as shamelessly funky. Bob Sinclair, who has been heard at the Blue Ridge Barbecue Festival in previous years, will follow them, merging jazz, country/swing, blues and ballads to close out the evening. Last but not least, Summer Tracks will round off this year with The Firecracker Jazz Band, which is often called the “do not miss” band of the area. This eclectic six-piece ensemble will play on Sept. 2. The band has been a popular performer at Roger’s Park before and will likely attract a crowd again. The shows begin at 7 p.m., rain or shine. Though admission is free, donations are greatly appreciated. Soft drinks, water and Giardini’s wood-fired pizza will be available for sale.

Splashing away summer’s brutal heat waves

Tubing If you have been in the south very long you probably know what tubing is, if you are new to the area you may not. Tubing is nothing more than taking an old inner tube from a car tire and floating down a river while sitting on it. I’m not sure who the visionary was that first came up with the idea of tubing, but it’s a blast. Tubing is as southern as it gets. Depending on the river and water flow, you can enjoy a slow, relaxing float, taking in the sights and sounds, or you can bounce your way down the many rapid filled rivers in Tubers float down the Green River.

ECO is excited about working with county residents to develop a water monitoring program and provide training to interested volunteers.” Organizers say that without pristine waters, the area will suffer not only aesthetically, but economically.
