Bird nursery in TR&HC fern at FENCE

Two white roses were recently placed near the memorials for Edward Hawkins at Harmon Field. One is located near a rock-plaque that lets passersby know how much Mr. Hawkins loved the park. The other sits beside the water fountain just over the bridge.

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

These three robins were born recently at FENCE in the middle of a Tryon Riding & Hunt Club fern. Traditionally these ferns hang from the awning in front of FENCE between April’s running of the Block House Steeplechase and TR&HC’s hunter/ jumper shows at FENCE in the summer. This year the last fern in the line had a note hanging from it saying, “Do not disturb, bird nursery,” so it stayed behind when the others went to the equestrian side of FENCE for the recent five-day TR&HC show. Billy Pound, FENCE’s maintenance helper, waters this fern carefully. He said “flight school” should begin during FENCE’s Nature Summer Day Camp, July 11-15. (photo submitted by Gretchen R. Verbonic)

It is legal to make liquor for personal consumption, but sheriff Wright said this operation was well beyond personal consumption. Three men face charges in connection with the operation, which included a 10-month undercover investigation conducted by the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office and the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED). Michael Eston Blackwell, 44, of 6085 New Cut Road, Inman, S.C., was arrested and charged with 13 counts of selling/manufacturing/storage of unlawful liquor and sale of a distillery, according to booking reports. Larry Hyder, 53, of 321 Plantation Drive, Landrum, and Carroll Campbell, 72, of 305 S. Randolph St., Landrum, will also be charged with selling/manufac(Continued on page 4)

turing/storage of unlawful liquor, according to Master Deputy Craig Bradley. The sheriff’s office said both Hyder and Campbell have arranged to turn themselves into the sheriff’s office next week, when they will be charged. Sheriff Wright said the operation was pretty large. He also said he isn’t the first official to bust an operation at the property over the years. According to Wright, it’s likely that liquor has been made on the property for at least 60 years. “Most men can’t drink two glasses of this stuff without wallerin’ around in the dirt,” Wright said. “If you drank all that your-

self, you’d be pickled.” Officers purchased approximately 214 gallons of moonshine during the operation, according to the sheriff’s office. The undercover operation began after officers received complaints about moonshine being sold at a roadside produce stand. Blackwell owns a peach stand, and investigators said they believe word of mouth spread the information that homegrown liquor was available in the area. If convicted of a first offense for producing illegal liquor, the suspects will face a fine of not less than $600 or six months in prison. Sheriff’s officers said all three men were very cooperative. Blackwell was released last week on a $14,000 bond.

Landrum carriage rides to continue through October by Samantha Hurst

Visitors to Landrum can continue to enjoy carriage rides around the city the first Friday of each month now through the fall. Landrum City Council members approved using $500 a month in hospitality tax funds to cover the cost of hosting the rides. “I think everybody that goes really enjoys it and I think it’s a positive thing for the city,” said LABA president Melanie Jennings. Some council members,

The next carriage ride will be held July 8 from 7-9 p.m.

Hanukkah, or Chanukah, is a Jewish celebration that is also known as the Festival of Lights. Hanukkah is an eight-day celebration, most notably marked with the lighting of the menorah. The menorah is a candleholder that holds nine candles; the main eight candles and a “helper” candle called a shamash, which is used to light all eight candles. This tradition is derived from a story found in the Talmud about a man named Judas Maccabaeus, or Judah Maccabee. Around 170 B.C., the ruler Epiphanes tried to force the Greek gods upon the Jews.

Race a friend through the maze.

The history of stock car racing in the United States began in the 1900’s. Almost immediately upon the creation of the gasoline-powered vehicle, the racing of vehicles to test performance began. Prohibition, or the outlaw of alcohol in the U.S., gave people another reason to drive fast. Illegal alcohol products, also known as moonshine, were produced in the mountainous regions of the Appalachians. When it was ready for distribution, it was taken by car to distribution sites. Often times, the distributors (known as bootleggers) preferred faster vehicles to evade detection. When prohibition ended in 1933, the love for performance vehicles had set in, and official races became one of America’s favorite pastimes. The need for rules and regulations prompted a man by the name of Bill France to come to Daytona Beach, Florida and create The National Association for Stock Car Racing, or NASCAR, in 1948. Since then, NASCAR races have been the second most watched sport on television, second only to American football. There are many different levels on the NASCAR circuit, for all levels of drivers and types of vehicles, making it a vast network. Famous races, such as the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500 have become synonymous with race cars, even to those that do not follow the sport.

Tryon Elementary students create 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 Kendall Hall. Saramithia: Goddess of the Solar System by Kendall Hall Many years ago, when the sky was blank, the gods were having a celebration in honor of Aphrodite and Poseidon’s baby Saramithia. Saramithia was a curious child who was always gazing into the sky and wondering what could be there. For Saramithia’s 16th birthday present, Aphrodite and Poseidon presented her with incredible gift.

In honor of her daughters, she created the nine planets and named each planet after one daughter. Each planet reflected the personality of the daughter represented. Mercury was the first daughter born. Because of her quick wit and hot temper, she was placed closest to the sun and had the shortest revolution. Venus was their second daughter. She was the smartest of them all. That’s how Venus came to be the brightest of the planets. Saramithia’s most beloved daughter was Earth. She was the most trusted and compassionate of her children so on this planet she gave Earth life, for she knew all living beings would be cared for and would flourish. Mars was the fourth daughter born. Her personality varied the most out of all Saramithia’s children. Her fiery personality could turn ice cold in the blink of an eye. This is why Mars is red with polar ice caps. Their fifth daughter was named Jupiter. Jupiter was never one to sit still for long. She was a whirlwind of swirling energy with an enormous personality that commanded the attention of many. For this reason, Saramithia made Jupiter the largest of the planets with the Great Red Spot (an enormous whirling hurricane), and the most moons orbiting it. Saturn, their sixth daugh-

ter, was the most fragile. In order to protect her daughter, Saramithia surrounded her with 1,000 rings and moons so Saturn was always reminded of her mother’s protective arms around her. Saramithia and Zeus were blessed next with twins. Their seventh daughter was named Uranus. Uranus was such a sleepyhead she was always lying down. This is why Uranus is tilted on its side. Uranus’s twin was named Neptune. Like Uranus, Neptune was sad to leave their mother. This is why Neptune has a Great Dark Spot which is a depression filled with clouds. To represent her twins’ sadness, Saramithia colored both girls blue. Their final child, the youngest of them all, was named Pluto. Pluto was born prematurely and never grew to the size of her siblings. Unfortunately she didn’t survive. Saramithia still loved her dearly and wanted her represented in the solar system. Scientists often debate on whether Pluto is a planet, but we know that Saramithia wanted her youngest daughter, Pluto’s, spirit to remain in the solar system with her siblings. When Saramithia was done creating the solar system, she was pleased. No longer was the sky blank, but filled with her children. Now when she gazes into the sky all she loves surrounds her. That is how the solar system came to be.

Polk County Youth Football gets new logo, new helmets by Barbara Tilly

The new, safer helmets that Polk County Youth Football (PCYF) players will be wearing soon will also sport a new logo designed to reflect the organization’s connection to Polk County High School’s football program (see photo, right, which shows the new logo on an old helmet).

Want Your ad Here?

Shane Blackwell of PCYF said the organization wanted to emphasize its ties to PCHS, helping to build a strong tradition. When he received the new logo, he sent a photo of it to PCHS Head Coach Bruce Ollis. “Ollis said, ‘That just gave me cold chills,’” Blackwell said.

Free puppet performance July 9 at Upstairs Artspace Families are invited to pamper their children with an original puppet show presented at the Upstairs Artspace on Saturday, July 9, at 3 p.m. The event is free and open to children and adults. Kids who are 5 to 10 years old will enjoy preferred seating. Puppeteer and puppet artist Madison J. Cripps is from Asheville, where he is an active member of the performing arts community, including the Asheville Puppetry Alliance. As a performer, Cripps brings his hand-carved marionettes to life with improvised drama, humorous puns and songs. As an artist, he has a studio in Asheville’s River Arts District, where he constructs puppets and teaches workshops.

The puppet show at the Upstairs will star some of Cripps’ most popular characters, including Wophie the Dog, Frog and Zombie. All are on display at the gallery’s current exhibit, where Cripps has smaller hand puppets for sale. Cripps sets up his own stage and provides musical accompaniment with a harmonica. Following the show, children will get a chance to interact with the puppets. Juice and cookies will be served. The Jim Freeman Memorial Fund made the show possible. The Upstairs is located at 49 S. Trade Street next to the movie theater. For more information, call 828-859-2828. – article submitted by Nancy Holmes

We’re starting a new tradition in our household. My children are the little frontier people who are beginning this movement. They are forging the way for other generations and taking over mealtimes at my dinner table. It is the tradition of “I will eat what I want to eat and when I want to eat it… and you can’t make me because what I’m looking at on my plate is yuck!” I’m still searching for a shorter label to slap on this new tradition. I say new, but I’m guessing this daily occurrence has been around for years, centuries, possibly since the beginning of mankind. I have a hunch that Adam and Eve stumbled over the forbidden fruit in hopes of looking for something to get

ficially non-edible. It is then strategically pushed around on the plate in a pinwheel type motion; all food spaced out enough to make it look as if it was indeed eaten. Ve g e t a b l e s d e f i n i t e l y weren’t my favorite, now that I think of it. Anything good for me or non-fried was on the “gag-me” list. There were many nights that I was the last man sitting at the table after refusing to eat my healthy veggies still cold and lingering on my plate. It was a lonely existence some nights. Yes, my kids share those same tactics. Force-feeding a 9-year-old boy a carrot is not my idea of a peaceful dinner. He’s quite outgrown both (Continued on page 19)

There is always the promise of “I'll eat it tomorrow for lunch,” or “just one more piece and let me get down,” or my personal favorite, “My stomach hurts and I can’t eat anything, can I get down?” My favorite comeback, of course, is “Do you want some ice cream instead?” Let me just say, I have an undefeated record with that one. Dessert always brings out the hunger in kids. Children across the land have a firm belief that all sweets should be good for you. Ice cream and cookies should be a staple of our diet. I hear the argument weekly. If you are what you eat,

With more and more nonprof1x1 its jumping into the grant writing and2/14 submission arena many foun3/10,13, 16 dations find themselves with a lot more applications and less money to disperse, due to the economic times. Many nonprofits may not realize that currently in the United States we have 1.6 million nonprofits, 3,000 new ones are charted every month. For every nonprofit cause there are over 1,000 nonprofits dedicated to that cause in the United States. I constantly hear from nonprofits, oh we are the only ones doing this program or service. I assure you with the numbers I just quoted – you are not the only one. I couldn't say what my kids would be. I don’t know how kids (or parents) survive through this eating dilemma. Our kids can eat us out of house and home or they can scarcely eat for days. Yet they have more energy than both my wife and I on any given day.

As the Nonprofit Leadership column continues the next series will focus on grant writing. In the nonprofit sector we constantly hear grants, grants, grants. Many nonprofits, because of the economy, are looking to foundations to help with the short fall in donations. To capture that support they are also currently searching and hiring grant writers. Wikipedia defines grant writing as: Grant writing refers to the practice of completing formal and/or informal application processes by one party, often a nonprofit entity, educational institution or business - but also by individuals to another party such as a government department, corporation, foundation or trust. Such application processes are often referred to as either grant “proposals” or “submissions.”
