Palmer Street Development Study

by Leah Justice

The Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) recently held a charrette during which interested residents brainstormed possibilities for future development of the Palmer Street area in downtown Tryon. Architect John Walters said the TDDA has for a long time thought about doing a study on the Palmer Street area, which includes East Howard, Maple, Palmer and N. Trade streets. Walters said it was surprising how many of the same ideas came from different people during the two-day session. Some of the ideas that resulted from the charrette were turned (Continued on page 4)

at a few different addresses. Warren’s arrest is one of several that have been made since May as a result of Operation Pill Sweep. The sheriff’s office and the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation (SBI), with assistance from the U.S. Veteran’s Affairs Office and the sheriff’s offices of Buncombe County and Spartanburg County, S.C., conducted a ninemonth undercover investigation intended to get illegal prescription pills out of Polk County. Hill said officers purchased an estimated 2,000 illegal prescription pills from area residents during the investigation. The sheriff’s office originally had warrants for more than 20 suspects, with other arrests being made during the operation. Officers have arrested suspects for marijuana, heroin, opium and cocaine as well as

a variety of illegal prescription medications, including oxycodone, oxycontin, Percocet, Lortab, hydrocodone and Xanax. In addition, some suspects have been arrested on child abuse charges as a result of illegal drug transactions being made in the presence of children. Warren was issued a $10,000 bond, according to sheriff’s office reports.

Development ideas from the public and the TDDA included: • Extending housing units on Howard Street • Addressing public and employee parking needs • Looking at improvements to the rear of buildings for loading areas • Developing the lower levels of existing buildings • Burying electrical lines and adding lighting • Adding green space • Exposing Lockhart Creek to create a future pedestrian amenity The downtown parking issue was addressed by several proposals.

were to become available. Other structured parking lots for both the public and business employees downtown were part of many of the proposals. The ideas also kept pedestrians in mind, with linkage points for walkability in the area. Walters said the drawings included ideas from some area business owners. One sketch (see above) shows the town’s street department area, at the corner of Maple and Howard streets, which could one day include other businesses and/or

low grade parking for residents and downtown employees, as well as greenspace and a stream. Councilman Wim Woody said this idea would require the removal of the town’s maintenance facility as the first step. Mayor Alan Peoples said relocating the town’s facility is currently in the town’s plans. Council members asked if the park-like area along the stream is being viewed as public or private. Walters said he sees opening up the stream and a park for the public. “Again, this is market- and economy-driven,” Walters said of the ideas shown in the drawings.

Election season begins

Just 11 candidates tossing their names in the hat for open city government seats across Polk County means there will be few contested races come November. What it doesn’t mean is that voters should use that as an excuse to be complacent. If anything, it means voters should be more vocal. With fewer people seeking office, many of them running unopposed, there is even more need for constituents of Polk County to be vigilant and concerned with the way in which their towns are being run. Without opponents running in the various races, many voters assume they don’t need to find out more about the people potentially taking office. Some voters assume it no longer matters because they won’t necessarily need to vote for one person or another. However, situations like this call for you to know your candidates even better, so you can learn a bit more about what to expect when they come to govern your area. You need to know how they feel about annexation, water services, taxes, zoning and more. It’s important for you to be involved in the political process regardless of whether or not your vote could determine who is in that seat. Pay attention and get to know your local lawmakers, current and future. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

The festivities will begin at 9 a.m. with Mrs. Hudson’s breakfast in Columbus and a presentation by Henry Zecher, author of the just-published “William Gillette, America’s Sherlock Holmes,” a biography of the life of one of the world’s premier actors and playwrights for half a century. Gillette, who had a summer home in Tryon for years, created, with permission from his collaborator, Sir Authur Conan Doyle, the stage presentation of Sherlock Holmes in England and America. For more than 12 years Henry Zecher has given a slide program on William Gillette to Sherlock Holmes fans. The program has been a popular event in the Sherlockian world, with some fans proclaiming it the best presentation ever given at a Sherlockian event.

Now, Zecher has a book to go with it. More than 700 pages, the book includes numerous graphics and photos, many collected by author Zecher and not previously published. Zecher will sign books at the breakfast. The Book Shelf in Tryon will sponsor an additional book signing from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on July 23. The Polk County Historical Museum (featuring a large collection of William Gillette material) will be open to visitors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tours of Gillette memorabilia, including the pipe and slippers he wore in stage presentations of his play, “Sherlock Holmes,” are available.

Glassy Mountain Fire Department announces recent academy graduate Glassy Mountain Fire Department announces the graduation of Evan Campbell from the S.C. Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation’s S.C. Fire Academy on June 24. Campbell completed the 320 hour training program of classroom and hands-on firefighting skills development. He graduated in a class of 20 representing 14 fire departments across S.C. and one out-of-country fire department. “We are very proud to recognize Evan’s accomplishments. This eight-week training course is very challenging,”

said Glassy Mountain fire service area, chief Brian G. Riebe. “The program requires team work, in-depth study, extensive hands-on training with live fires, practical skills evaluations and written tests to meet the national fire protection association standards. This is yet another example of our commitment to serving our community with the very best,” he said. In addition to volunteering with the Glassy Mountain Fire Department, Campbell attends Greenville Technical College majoring in electrical engineering. He is a native of

Campobello, S.C. “To keep our community safe, we are always in need of more volunteer firefighters and first responders,” chief Riebe said. “We also need to further develop our auxiliary of citizens to provide support for the district and we can offer other job opportunities than fighting fires. If anyone wants more information on how to become part of our team, they should contact me at 864-895-4306 or go to our website at www.” - article submitted by Sharyn M. Arnold
