TES Principal Williams retires by Samantha Hurst

Holden, Isabella, Malakhi and Sydney… outgoing Tryon Elementary School (TES) Principal Walker Williams knows each student’s first name as they are etched on his heart. Walker made his retirement from TES official at the Polk County Board of Education meeting June 27. His last day was Thursday, June 30.

“I am thankful and feel blessed to have had this opportunity,” Williams told BOE members. “The students have been a joy in my life and the faculty and staff have been a great group to work with over my years at the school. I know the future will be bright for the school and I leave with much love in

He really wants the best for these kids and wants them to get a good education,” Vining said. “He was just a beloved principal and principals like that don’t come around a lot.” Though he often arrived at school at 6 a.m., wouldn’t leave until after 6 p.m. and showed up regularly on the weekends for community programs, Williams remained quiet about his accomplishments. “He never wanted credit given to him, he always wanted his teachers to stand out and he wanted people to know the teachers and students were doing the work,” Vining said. Sellers said Williams was one of the first people to say that afterschool programs were important, long before everyone else caught on. She said Williams pulled that

Williams also initiated a program to take fifth-graders on college tours so they would become exposed to college environments and see that it was something that could be in their future, Vining said. “He runs a really good school and we have really good test scores but the reason we have really good tests scores is because everyone works as a team,” Sellers said. “He trusts every teacher

just the way he was. He made an all-call, ‘This is Walker Williams, Tryon Elementary; it’s official, I’m retired.’ That’s all he said.” Vining said she wishes Williams good health in retirement and she said she hopes he can find something to keep him occupied and happy. “To me, for the kids of Tryon Elementary School, he’s just given so many years to us and we’re just thankful for what he’s given to us,” Vining said. “I’m letting him leave with a lot of grateful thoughts. He’s given just about his whole life to Tryon Elementary.” Williams served a total of 45 years in public education in both South Carolina and North Carolina. Twenty of those total years were spent at Tryon Elementary.

Families can take part in a variety of games beginning at 10:30 a.m. on the Stearns School lawn. Rides for the children will also be available on the lawn at Stearns. The House of Flags’ new (Continued on page 6)

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. Corporate Trustee Q. What is a corporate trustee and why would I use one. A. A corporate trustee is a bank trust department or trust company. They can help you build, manage and protect the assets you put in your trust. reasons to use a corporate trustee: Professional asset management. they can manage assets in your trust now and after you die as you instruct, buying and selling assets, paying bills, filing tax returns maintaining accurate records, and distribution income and asses. Corporate trustees give their full attention to managing trust assets and because of their resources and experience they often do so with better results. Wealth protection: Corporate trustees are regulated by both state and federal agencies. Courts consider them “experts” and expect them to meet higher standards than non professionals. Corporate trustees don’t become ill, die, get divorces or get distracted by personal problems. Call (828) 696 1811 for info on this or other planning techniques.

NFPA provides fireworks safety information



cluded the following: • 53 percent of 2008 emergency room fireworks-related injuries were to the extremities and 37 percent were to the head. • 57 percent of the 2008 fireworks injuries were burns, while 20 percent were contusions and lacerations. • Two of five (40 percent) people injured by fireworks were under the age of 15. • The risk of fireworks injury was highest for teens ages 1519 and children 5-9, both with at least 2-1/2 times the risk for the general population. • Sparklers, fountains, and novelties alone accounted for 32 percent of the emergency

room fireworks injuries in 2007. The following are safety tips provided by the North Spartanburg Fire District to consider when using fireworks: • Never allow young children to play with fireworks • Sparklers account for 1/3 of injuries to children less than 5 years of age • Always provide close adult supervision to older children • One out of every three people injured are children under the age of 15 • Only ignite fireworks in clear areas away from combustible vegetation and structures (Continued on page 9)

• Fireworks safety (continued from page 8)

• Fire can quickly spread through flammable or combustible materials • Never have any portion of your body over a firework when lighting • Wear protective eyewear and avoid wearing loose clothing • Never attempt to reignite a malfunctioning firework. Soak the firework and dispose of it properly. • Never point fireworks toward people, pets, cars, or buildings and never throw fireworks. This can easily lead to injury and cause fires. • Never light fireworks in a container, especially a glass or metal container. This could explode and spread shrapnel • Never experiment with homemade fireworks or attempt to alter fireworks. These could be unpredictable. • Always observe local and state laws • Always keep a bucket of water or hose nearby that can be used to quickly extinguish a fire before it spreads • Spent fireworks should be soaked in a bucket of water before disposing • Consider attending a professional public display event instead. Another note that many people do not know: some home owner insurance may not cover damage to your property if caused by the owner shooting fireworks. Also remember your pets during the 4th of July events •Never take your pet to a firework display • Never leave your pet in the car • Move your pets indoors to a sheltered area. Turn on a radio to a normal volume •Make sure your pet is wear-

ing an identification tag •If you know your pet is distressed by loud noises, consult your veterinarian It is the desire of the North Spartanburg Fire District to educate the public about fireworks safety and fireworks laws, with the goal of preventing firework related injuries and destructive fires.

Just A Reminder…

To the Editor: The following is a letter that we (Tina and Tommy Melton) received from The Fleming Kivett Hardaway Group in Greenville, S.C. I wanted to share it with you in light of the holiday coming up. “Birthdays are a time for giving gifts. On our nation’s birthday, we thought it appropriate to look into perhaps the most recognizable gift our country has ever received, the Statue of Liberty. Designed to be a joint project between the two nations, the U.S. was to build the base and the French were to build the statue (the entire statue was paid for in donations, it cost the French government nothing). The statue was intended to be a beacon of the power of democracy and freedom to the rest of the world. Most visitors to the statue will never notice the broken shackle on the stepping right foot. This broken shackle symbolizes the statue’s freedom from bondage and slavery. The stepping right foot of the statue is also symbolic of the statue’s forward progress into the future. The statue is symbolically lighting the path to freedom. The crown has seven spikes. These spikes represent the seven seas and the seven continents on the globe. The windows in the crown represent the heavens’ rays of light to the seven seas and continents.

The tablet in the left hand of the statue represents the laws that our nation was founded upon. The tablet’s shape is that of a keystone symbolizing that without law our nation and way of life would not prevail. The pedestal of the statue was made of thirteen layers of granite to symbolize the 13 original colonies of our nation. The shields that sit low on the base of the Statue represent the individual states in our country. Prior to building the Eiffel Tower, Gustave Eiffel was contracted to build the framework of the statue. The unique interior framing of the statue is perhaps the most impressive part of the statue. The framing allows each individual piece of the statue to hang independently of the other; no piece of the exterior hangs from the piece above it or places pressure on the piece below it. His unique system was used to help each piece of the statue move independently to withstand the high winds and elements found in New York Harbor. This system of building is also another great example of our nation. Each of us citizens is free to move independently; we are free to go where we want, when we want. We are free to withstand the storms in our lives in the way we see fit. We are also free to stand united. If one of the pieces of the statue gives out, it allows for increased pressure and strain on the others. Much like this statue we are independent but we are stronger as a whole. We are united in our independence.” –– Tina Melton, Columbus

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:

Saluda oral history DVD to premiere Sunday, July 5 The Historic Saluda Oral History Committee has announced a release date for its inaugural oral history DVD entitled “Home, Hearth & History: Stories of Old Saluda.” Copies of the DVD will be available at the film’s premiere scheduled for July 2 at 5 p.m. at the Saluda Mountain Jamboree. The premiere is being held prior to the Saluda 130th Birthday Celebration square dance that will be held that same night at 7 p.m. Eljapa Media Group has worked with the oral history committee to record more than 14 hours of oral history video interviews, copied hundreds of old photographs from private collections and received more than a dozen original cassette tapes of interviews conducted by Charlene Pace and Anne Osborne for their 1981 book, “Saluda, N.C. 100 Years 1881-1981.” Participating in the inaugural DVD are Martha Anderson, Bill Russell, John Rhodes, Dr. George Jones, Charlene Pace, Henry Twiggs, Martha Ashley, Betty

Pace Thompson and Ruth Pace Lawter. The committee hopes future interviews will be compiled into additional DVDs and then archived on a Historic Saluda website. The City of Saluda provided seed money to launch this project and donors helped fund the remaining cost of the grassroots project. The oral history committee is a subcommittee of the Historic Saluda Committee, founded in May 2010 by interested citizens, operating under the jurisdiction of the City of Saluda. Admission to the film premiere is free; however, donations will be accepted to help with costs of future oral history interviews. A small fee will be charged for admission to the square dance.

Study: Economic recovery varies widely across Carolinas While some cities in the Carolinas will see employment return to pre-recession levels within the next year, others will have to wait a few years or even longer, according to a study prepared for the recent annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. The study by IHS Global Insight research firm, which analyzed economic conditions in 363 of the nation’s metro areas, projects overall employment in the United States will return to pre-recession peak levels in 2014. IHS forecasts employment recovery will come sooner to some Carolina metro areas, including Durham-Chapel Hill, forecasted to lead the region with employment returning to pre-recession peak levels by the third quarter of this year.

Durham-Chapel Hill, one of only 12 metro areas expected to regain peak employment in 2011, is followed in the Carolinas by Raleigh and Charleston, S.C., both of which are forecasted to recover by the fourth quarter of 2012. Myrtle Beach was next with recovery coming by the first quarter of 2013, followed by Charlotte and Columbia, S.C., in the third quarter of 2013. The study forecasts other cities in the region, including even Atlanta (first quarter 2014), will have to wait longer to see employment return to pre-recession levels. Greenville, S.C., is estimated to regain peak employment in the third quarter of 2014, nearly

matching the nation’s forecasted recovery, while Asheville, N.C., is forecasted to recover by the first quarter of 2015 and Spartanburg in the second quarter of 2016. Hickory is expected to be the last metro area in the Carolinas to return to peak employment, waiting until after 2025, according to IHS. In nearly every city in the Carolinas, the change in employment is expected to turn from negative to positive by this year. For instance, IHS estimates annual employment growth will change in Greenville, S.C., from -6.8 percent in 2009 to 1.3 percent this year, and then rise to 2.4 percent in 2012 and 2.6 percent in 2013.

Around the Region

Between 2009 and 2014, Charleston, S.C., Raleigh, Durham-Chapel Hill and Charlotte are expected to see the highest average employment growth rates in the region. Charleston is forecasted to average 2.3 percent annual employment growth, followed by Raleigh at 2.2 percent and Durham-Chapel Hill and Charlotte at 2.1 percent. Asheville and Spartanburg are both expected to recover at a slower pace, with average employment growth rates of 1.2 and 1.3 percent, respectively, over the same five-year period. Asheville’s unemployment rate is expected to fall from 9.5 percent in 2009 to 6.2 percent in 2014, while Spartanburg’s unemployment is expected to drop from 13.1 percent to 9.6 (Continued on page 14)

percent. Mark Vitner, a Wells Fargo & Co. economist who recently provided a regional economic forecast of his own, said he agrees some cities in the Carolinas will recover sooner than many other areas of the country, partly because they are experiencing faster population growth. However, he said he believes the IHS forecasts are “a little aggressive,” and it actually may take a year or so longer than what IHS predicts before the nation’s economy fully recovers. *** In its annual ranking of the best states for business, CNBC put North Carolina third on the list for 2011, trailing only Virginia and Texas. North Carolina was among the top 10 states in three of the 10 categories analyzed by CNBC. The Tarheel state was ranked third in both the workforce and infrastructure/transportation categories and ninth for cost of business. North Carolina’s lowest rank-

ings came in the economy (41st) and quality of life (33rd) categories. Other categories analyzed in the ranking include access to capital, business friendliness, cost of living, education and technology/innovation. The top ranking for North Carolina comes after it was ranked by “Site Selection” magazine last fall as the top state in the nation for business climate for the sixth straight year. South Carolina, which came in ninth in the “Site Selection” ranking, did not fare as well on the CNBC list, coming in 37th overall. South Carolina had its lowest ranking in the Economy category (49th), and its highest ranking in Workforce (6th).

The county has recently discussed in closed session an opportunity to lure a company that will create 400 jobs and invest $125 million, but the identity of the company has not been revealed. Kit Cramer, president and CEO of the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce, said he expects there will be “big (economic development) news” to share at next w e e k ’s a n nual chamber meeting. Volvo shut down operations at the Skyland plant on Hendersonville Road early last year, taking away 228 jobs. Buncombe County plans to borrow money for the Volvo plant purchase, which county officials said may be the largest real estate deal ever for the county.

*** Buncombe County commissioners voted unanimously this week to purchase the former Volvo Construction plant in Skyland, N.C. The county will pay $7 million for the 405,108-square-foot facility that it hopes will draw a new manufacturer to the area.

*** Western North Carolina is the top region in the state for developing renewable energy capacity, according to the 2011 North Carolina Clean Energy Data Book.

The report, released by the nonprofit N.C. Sustainable Energy Association, found that Western North Carolina is a top area for wind, solar and hydroelectric power. The 31-county WNC region also ranked high for the number of builders for energy-efficient homes and the number of renewable energy systems. M a tt B ak e r o f A d v antageGreen, the green jobs division of AdvantageWest Economic Development Group, noted that WNC has more green energy companies per capita than the Research Triangle of Raleigh. According to the report, WNC has 400 renewable energy and energy-efficiency firms, including 213 in Buncombe County, considered to be the largest renewable energy industry cluster in the state. Baker said the report shows renewable energy has been one of the few growth industries during a slow economy and its cost competitive with nonrenewable energy sources, such as coal and oil. Information in the 2011 N.C. Clean Energy Data Book will help support the WNC Clean Energy Economy Project, said Baker. The project, a collaboration between the Land-ofSky Regional Council, AdvantageWest and five regional councils of government in the western part of the state, is focusing on ways to grow the region’s green energy business, including sustainable building, energy efficiency, low-emission vehicles and renewable energy. *** North Carolina had its lowest crime rate in 33 years in 2010, according to figures announced by state Attorney General Roy Cooper this week. Cooper said the state’s crime rate fell 5.6 percent last year compared to 2009. Violent crime was down even more, dropping 10.2 percent from the previous (Continued on page 15)

year. While the overall crime rate is the lowest since 1977, the murder rate was the lowest since the state began tracking crime in 1973. Last year was the third straight year the crime rate declined in the state. Property crime was down 12.5 percent, and violent crime dropped significantly in each category, including robberies (down 19.4 percent), rapes (down 14.3 percent) and murders (down 7.3 percent). Cooper said law enforcement training, updated technology and prevention efforts helped contribute to the declines. He cautioned that the new budget approved by the N.C. General Assembly threatens to stall that progress by cutting funds for public safety programs. The budget decreased funding for

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

the State Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Academy by 9 percent. The budget also eliminated state funding for drug treatment courts, and the State Highway Patrol, which could see layoffs, is expected to lose $20 million in funding over two years. State Senator Harry Brown (RJacksonville), who is cochair of the appropriations committee on justice and public safety, said legislators did not want to reduce funding for public safety programs, but they had to balance the budget. He said he hopes the programs will be restored once the economy improves.

required in new legislation. The Asheville city school district plans to seek a waiver from the state to use the two other days for teacher training rather than classroom instruction. The waiver, if approved, can only be used for one school year. The N.C. legislature has mandated that all school systems in the state move to a 185-day school year in the 2012-13 year. The change was made to bring the state’s school calendar more in line with countries where students attend school for 220 days or more each year. Asheville City school board members also discussed the possibility of adding 30 minutes to each school day for elementary school students and 15 minutes for middle and high school students, but decided to study the idea further. Surveys

Around the Region

*** Asheville City school board voted to add three days to the next school year, two less than what the N.C. General Assembly



offered by the district showed that a majority of teachers, teacher assistants and parents opposed the move to a longer school day. Asheville City Schools Supt. Allen Johnson asked that the school system also begin exploring the possibility of moving to a year-round schedule, which he acknowledged would be “a major change” that should be studied thoroughly. School administrators said the summer break, which often leaves at-risk students without access to educational opportunities, contributes to a wider achievement gap between high and low-performing students. *** Thanks to the arrival of lowcost carrier Southwest Airlines, passenger traffic at the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport was up nearly 49 (Continued on page 16)

Proud to be an American: Memorial Day 2011 by Leonard Rizzo

Each year I try to write a little something about what I deem the most solemn of our national holidays. This year I thought I’d just describe my day and hope our readers will draw a little something from it. I awoke at 5 a.m., which is my usual time, for I cherish the quiet early mornings. I greet each day with my usual little prayer, “Lord, may all that I do this day be pleasing to your eyes.” I leave my home by 5:30 a.m. and head to T.J.’s for breakfast with a group of men who meet there each day. First a stop off at my church for a quick prayer to those friends and loved ones I have lost and those still serving; there will be more to come this day. I’m at T.J.’s before 6 a.m., hoping to catch Scott Camp, who is the master of ceremonies at the Memorial Cemetery in Columbus. As I pull in, Scott is already leaving. We wave at each other as he heads towards Columbus. I have breakfast with Chuck Davis, my usual breakfast partner, who is also a member of the honor guard at the memorial service. The tribute to our fallen servicemen will begin at 11 a.m., but I leave at 7 a.m. and head toward the hallowed grounds. This quiet time of reverence is also something I do each year. I pull into the parking area and see one truck already there. It’s Scott, doing some finishing touches preparing for the ceremony. “Are there too many flags, Lennie?” “Never too many, old friend,” I reply. Scott nods as I begin making my way around. I stop at some familiar area names, Womack and others, and silently offer my thanks to them. A killdeer is flopping around, faking a broken wing. I look and spot a clutch of four perfectly camouflaged eggs tucked by the

Scott Camp prepares for the Memorial Day ceremony at the cemetery in Columbus. (photo submitted)

corner of a gravestone. I smile. “You picked a good spot, girl; they’ll be safe there.” I move away for her benefit and head back toward Scott. “Do you need any help?” I ask. “No thanks, Len, I think we’re about ready.” He’s right, the place is immaculate, flowers and flags strewn perfectly throughout the cemetery. “They did a nice job, Scott. It really looks beautiful.” “Thanks, Len, I hope we have a good turnout.” “Me too, Scott. I’m especially hoping folks heed my advice from last year and bring more children. We know what this day is all about. This generation has to learn.”

Scott nods agreement and hops in his truck as I decide to hang around awhile longer. It’s a beautiful day and I sit on the steps of the flag-filled memorial as my mind begins to wander. The price of gasoline is sky high but folks begrudgingly pay it for they must drive to work and shopping. The price of food is continually rising. Folks complain, but they pay, for they must eat. Gazing at the men and women who lie before me who have made the ultimate sacrifice, I am conscious of the price of freedom that these brave soldiers have already paid. What we have to pay costs us nothing; all we need pay is our respect. I leave to take care of a few other errands and pray for a good

turnout. I return shortly before 11 a.m. and the parking area is jammed. I smile as I park on the far end and make my way back, camera in hand. There are far more children than years past. “Thank you Lord,” I whisper. “Is that your son?” I ask one gentleman. “It’s my grandson,” he replies proudly. “God bless you,” I say, shaking his hand. The ceremony is solemn and beautiful as folks tearfully pay their respect. I gaze at all the old soldiers before me, many stooped over with age but before their flag they stand erect. There is a look in their eyes and their demeanor that says it all and in my heart I join them. On this day above all others, “I am proud to be an American.”

TBOM gears up for back-to-school drive Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (TBOM) is gearing up for a back-to-school drive. As students return to school this year, many will be without the necessary school supplies essential for academic success. Last year, more than 400 school children were provided with pencils, packs of paper, book bags, erasers, crayons and glue sticks because of the generosity of donors. This year TBOM expects the need to be even greater. Michelle Reedy, client services coordinator, said, “With over half of our county’s school children eligible to receive reduced or free lunch, we know that many of them will qualify for school supplies too. "Creating a level playing field for these youngsters to get off to a good start in school helps them feel good about themselves and encourages pride in doing their lessons

well.” TBOM collects schools supplies throughout the year to stock each school supply closet, but particularly during the summer months in order to prepare for the coming school year. If you would like to donate a new book bag or school supplies for children in need, you drop off your donation at Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry, 134 White Drive, Columbus NC, Monday – Friday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. For churches, organizations, families and individuals desiring to complete a backto-school drive on behalf of TBOM, please contact us at 828-894-2988. Current and ongoing supply needs • New book bags (all ages, but particularly middle and high-school)

• Wide-ruled and collegeruled paper • Pencils, pens and mechanical pencils • Large and small erasers • Pencil boxes and pencil pouches • Colored pencils, markers and highlighters • Rulers, pencil sharpeners and index cards • C r a y o n s a n d d r y e r a s e markers • Glue sticks, composition books and safety scissors • 3-ring binders, notebook tab dividers and pocket folders Volunteers are always welcome to help pack and distribute supplies. Please call for more information and ask for Michelle. In addition, monetary donations are always needed and appreciated. – article submitted by Jason Eller

Carr participates in Milliken/Wofford Institute Marvin Carr, a rising senior at Polk County High School, participated in the Milliken/Wofford Summer Leadership Institute in Spartanburg June 12 – 17. The Summer Leadership Institute (SLI), co-sponsored and funded by Milliken, hosted a total of 34 rising high school seniors from South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina. The participants spent seven days sharpening their leadership, communication, dining etiquette, creativity, presentation and teambuilding skills, as well as forming relationships with other students. Sessions were held at both Wofford and Milliken. The highlight of the program was the project component. Student teams learned the value

of leadership by working with a non-profit organization on community service projects requiring skills such as planning, organizing, teamwork and diversity appreciation. Five projects were chosen from a list provided by the United Way of the Piedmont for this year’s community service projects. The projects were conducted at the United Way’s Gifts in Kind Center. The students interviewed and shopped with representatives from local agencies that the Gifts in Kind Center serves. They also sorted, stocked and provided maintenance to the facility. Carr’s parents are Marvin and Emily Carr of Columbus. – article submitted by Laura Corbin

Polk’s Overholt bound for East-West All-Star game with Philpott by Daniel Hecht

No one seems to have an exact figure, but by most estimates, more than 20,000 young men (and a few young women) participate in the sport of high school football each year in the state of North Carolina. And, every summer since 1949, just 64 elite senior athletes are se-

lected to participate in the prestigious East-West All-Star Football Game. So, when it was announced back in March that Polk County’s Tyler Philpott had earned a coveted spot on the


32-man roster for the West team, Wolverine coaches and fans were understandably delighted to learn that such a select group of athletes would include one of their own. Monday after-

noon, that sense of hometown pride swelled once again, as Polk coaches learned that Andre Overholt would join Wolverine teammate Philpott on the field next month in Greensboro, NC. “It’s a great honor,” said Polk County head coach Bruce Ol(Continued on page 35)

lis Tuesday. “Andre’s a multitalented player, the kind of player you want in an all-star contest. He is the ultimate utility man – talented enough to step in almost anywhere.” The absence of Overholt’s name when the original all-star rosters were announced earlier this year raised more than a few eyebrows. As the 2010 Western Highlands Conference Player of the Year and the area’s Offensive Player of the Year, the quarterback/defensive back seemed a shoe-in for a slot on the elite squad. The Brevard-bound Overholt led the Wolverines to a record 12-win season, passing for 1,800 yards and 21 touchdowns while rushing for another 1,053 yards and 16 TDs. But, as Ollis explained, the all-star selection committee is often reluctant to name more than one player from the same school to the squad. “I think they try to spread the wealth around, so to speak,” said Ollis. “In particular, with us being a small school, they have a tendency not to select two players from the same team. I told Andre back in March that was probably the reason he wasn’t selected

(along with Philpott).” Ollis said the last-minute inclusion was likely the result of another player dropping off the roster due to an injury or other personal reason, and that Mike Cheek, the position group coach from R-S Central, said they’ll likely play Overholt in the defensive backfield. “They’re talking about using him at free safety, which is a very natural position for Andre,” said Ollis. “He has a dozen or more career interceptions, and he’s just a ball hawk. He’s able to find the football, one of those things you can’t coach – just an innate ability to break on the ball and make big plays when the ball is in the air.” Regardless of where West all-star head coach Joe Pinyan ultimately decides to play him, Overholt is more than happy to make the trip. “The best word to describe the feeling is ‘honored’,” said Overholt. “To be able to be part of this, coming from Polk County, a small school, being able to get two players into it – I’m glad it worked out so I could get into the game – it’s just an awesome honor to be able to do this.” Philpott and Overholt will report on July 17 to prepare for the game, which kicks off at 8 p.m. July 20 at Jamieson Stadium in Greensboro redeemed -

PAC warriors declare war on area kudzu Every Monday morning since Feb. 7, a team of Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) “Kudzu Warriors” have met at PAC’s Wilder Forest on Scenic Byway 176 outside of Tryon. Their mission: to cut out the kudzu crowns, which is known to be the most effective way of preventing the regrowth of this invasive plant once it is destroyed. These Kudzu Warriors have chopped, dug and dragged the tenacious vine off an entire hillside, giving beautiful native plants like Sweet Betsy Trillium, Solomon’s Seal and Jack-In-The-Pulpit a chance to grow. It’s grueling work on a steep hill where getting dirt in your hair, sweat in your eyes and all-over bug bites is par for the course. But the Kudzu Warriors take great care to preserve what is natural about Wilder Forest by relocating turtles and other animals that have made temporary homes under the kudzu and refraining from using herbicide so that native plants can regrow. Kudzu kills native undergrowth and even large trees by smothering them under the shade of its large leaves. In addition to damaging our natural environment, kudzu can cause economic damage through downed power lines and loss in tree harvesting productivity. American businessmen brought the vine back to the United States from Japan in the mid-late 1800s after U.S. Commodore Matthew Perry forced Japan to open to trade with the outside world in 1855. Entrepreneurs marketed kudzu at the 1883 New Orleans Exposition as an ornamental plant to cover porches. In the first half of the 20th Century, the federal government saw it as an answer to the problem of soil erosion in the Southeast and launched a kudzu seedling planting program. The plant wasn’t a nuisance so long as farmers looked after it, but when the boll weevil epidemic

of the 20s and 30s caused successive cotton crops to fail and forced southern farmers off their farms and into the cities for work, the plant began to grow unchecked. The winters of the American South were mild enough that much of the vine survived each year, altering the kudzu’s life cycle and allowing it to spread rapidly. Ever since, the Southern landscape has had a serious problem with the invasive pest. Kudzu prefers to reproduce by sending runners under the ground to found new crowns from which a vine will grow. It is exceptional at rapidly regrowing from just the crown, which stores nutrients for this purpose. The only way to permanently kill a kudzu plant is to dig up this crown and cut it away from its roots. Crowns are typically the size of a fist, but can grow to the size of a basketball. The older and more successful the plant is, the larger and deeper its crown will be. Once the crown is removed, it must be destroyed. Discarded intact crowns can, if discarded along with soil and plant materiel, reestablish and grow a new vine in a new location. The PAC Kudzu Warriors have successfully removed a significant number of kudzu

crowns by hand in PAC-protected Wilder Forest. The Warriors’ goal in removing the kudzu is to allow Wilder Forest to re-claim its natural state. Wilder Forest is a nature preserve and designated North Carolina Birding Trail, which represents 185 of the 8,000 acres which the Pacolet

Area Conservancy has helped protect. To learn more about PAC’s conservation work, call 828-859-5060 or go to www. pacolet.org. – article submitted by Pacolet Area Conservancy Intern, Nathan Bartlett

Tryon Elementary fifth-graders create their own myths Editor’s note: Mrs. Corcoran’s fifth grade enrichment class at Tryon Elementary School recently completed a unit of study on Greek myths. Students created their own god or goddess and wrote a myth about their god. The following is an essay by Drew Bailey.

Shakira and the Pigeon by Drew Bailey Shakira was the daughter of Athena. Athena loved Shakira so much that she blessed her with a simple gift, a pigeon. Shakira was furious with her mother, how could she give her such a pitiless animal? Outraged, she fled from

Olympus, and ran into a nearby forest. It was soon dark and after a while she became lost. With nothing else to do, she fell asleep. When she awoke, light was streaming through the trees. Wondering how to get home, Shakira felt a tap on her foot. It was the pigeon. It seemed to want her to

follow. She followed, and soon after a few minutes, they came to a clearing. Now awestruck at what the bird had done, she no longer hated the gift instead she sent it to live among men in peace. Today you may have heard of it as the “homing pigeon” because it always flies home.

The “right side” of the room abdicated the lead where it counts and U.S. companies now and forever will follow the lead of more “socialistic” societies such as the EU and China if they want to operate in the new world economy (Thank you Reaganistas). The situation is definitely not good for U.S. companies that need to export to survive. I am currently trying to help a U.S.-owned company that is doing significant international business but is now struggling with the new regulatory realities. They are growing and their international business is at least 50 percent of the reason for their success. It’s one of the leanest, forward-thinking organizations I’ve had the honor of working with. They are also one of the first businesses I’ve worked with that understands the challenges they now face because of the change in regulatory dynamics that has allowed other countries to take the lead. Once upon a time we learned a significant lesson about letting individual states drive regulations like environmental or commerce regulations. When individual states drive regulatory issues that significantly impact commerce on an interstate basis, then the system inefficiencies quickly hinder interstate commerce. Similarly, when individual countries begin to drive the regulatory issues, the global economic inefficiencies quickly hinder international commerce. This factor is usually to the detriment of U.S. industry. The regulation of chemicals

in commerce used to be led by the U.S. It is now lead by the EU through something called REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances). REACH has become the global standard, but countries like Turkey, Japan, Korea and China are adopting similar approaches with significant differences. All of these new rules create unfair roadblocks to U.S. companies because they are designed to protect their domestic industries. Most of these other countries have already implemented their own rules. The U.S. won’t announce their regulatory programs until August of this year. With the current political environment, their programs won’t be implemented for 3 – 4 years at best. Those new rules are not only irrelevant, but have allowed foreign companies to come to the U.S. and sell their products unhindered (taking more U.S. jobs). U.S. industry is already modifying their business structures and systems to comply with the more “Socialistic” Chinese and European models. If you think that U.S. regulatory requirements are stifling, then you haven’t read the Chinese version. I have. It has always been better for U.S. companies if government leads on the world stage of regulation. That is no longer the case. Our view of the world and how we play in it needs to change. Our view of how we govern and lead economically needs to change. Thirty years ago, we headed down the path that got us here. Where will we be 30 years hence?

How to find affordable dental care

Dear Savvy Senior, Where can seniors turn to find affordable dental care? I had dental insurance through my work for many years but lost it when I retired. What can you tell me? Flossing Frank

Savvy Senior

Dear Frank, Ve r y f e w U . S . re t i re e s have dental insurance today. Without coverage from traditional Medicare, and with private dental insurance typically costing too much to be feasible, most seniors are stuck paying full out-of-pocket prices every time they visit a dentist. While there’s no one simple solution to affordable dental care there are a variety of options that can help cut your costs.

plans.com (or call 888-632-5353) where you can search for plans and participating dentists by zip code, as well as get a breakdown of the discounts offered. Brighter (brighter.com, 866893-1694), which launched in May in all states except Florida, Montana and Vermont, is another discounted dental service to check out. It gives subscribers access to a network of 25,000 dentists offering 20 to 60 percent discounts on cleanings, crowns, implants, root canals and other procedures. You can sign up for a free one-month plan or opt for the premium plan, which costs $79 per year for individuals and families.

Here’s what you should know. Dental discounts One way you may be able to trim your dental care cost is by simply asking your dentist for a senior discount, especially if you’re paying up front. Out-ofpocket payers save the dentist office the cost and hassle of filing an insurance claim, so asking for a small 10 percent discount is not unreasonable. Another cost-effective way to reduce your dental expenses is to join a dental discount network. Members pay an annual membership fee – roughly $80 to $200 a year – in exchange for 15 to 50 percent discounts on service and treatments from participating dentists. To find a network, go to dental-

Low-cost care Another way to get dental care at a lower price is at a dental school clinic. Almost every dental school in the U.S. offers affordable care provided by dental students who are overseen by experienced, qualified teachers. You can expect to pay as little as a third of what a traditional dentist would charge and still receive excellent, well-supervised care. And for low-cost teeth cleanings, check with local colleges that offer dental hygiene programs. For training purposes, many programs provide teeth cleanings by their students for a fraction of what you’d pay at a dentists office. To locate dental schools or dental hygiene pro-

grams in your area visit www. ada.org/267.aspx. Low-income care If you’re strapped for cash there are other resources that provide dental care to seniors at a reduced rate or for free. Here’s where to look: Health centers: Federallyfunded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), there are thousands of health centers around the U.S., many of which provide discounted or free dental care to people based on financial need. To find a center near you visit findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov or call 877-464-4772. Local services: There are a few states, as well as some local programs or clinics that offer discounted dental care to those with limited means. To find out what may be available in your area, check with your state dental director (see astdd.org for contact information), or your state or local dental society (see ada.org/ statelocalorg.aspx). Dental Life Network: Offers several programs that provide free dental care for elderly and disabled people who can’t afford to pay. To learn more or to apply for care in your state, visit nfdh. org or call 888-471-6334. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Tickets on sale for TLT’s production of Pippin Man’s search for meaning is the theme of Tryon Little Theater’s summer youth musical production of Stephen Schwartz’ Pippin, opening July 7-10 at the Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC). In the opening song, Magic to Do, the leading player sings to the audience what is about to unfold; a journey of a young prince, Pippin. On a quest to find meaning for his life, Pippin sings Corner of the Sky, and dreams of an extraordinary life. Though the characters of Pippin and his father Charlemagne, are based on two individuals from the early Middle Ages, the plot offers very little historical accuracy. Directed and choreographed for Broadway by Bob Fosse, it starred Tony Award winner, Ben Vereen, as the Leading Player, and John Rubinstein in the title role.
