Morris rides high above downtown Tryon

Crews of workers were seen out picking summer’s bounty in the tomato fields beside Harmon Field Thursday, July 21.

Downtown Tryon has a new weathervane atop the Rotary Plaza clock tower. The threedimensional scale model of the globally recognized symbol of the town, the Tryon Horse, affectionately known as Morris, is the result of cooperative planning by many individuals and organizations.

• Morris

(continued from page 1)

Conceived as part of the original Brady/Trakas architectural renderings for the structure in 2003, the Morris weathervane was not included in the 2005 construction of the clock tower, a joint project by the Rotary Club of Tryon and the Thermal Belt Rotary Club to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the founding of Rotary International. Tryon would have to wait another six years to see the architect’s concept completed, but that wait is over, and the miniature version of the town’s symbol, locally handcrafted in copper and textured bronze, now overlooks downtown Tryon. The final phase of this project began when Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) President Crys Armbrust asked local businessman and Rotary Club of Tryon member John Gargiulo to spearhead this final element as a complement to TDDA’s recent historical marker initiatives for Tryon’s

Walt Myers, Joe Cooper, Bill Ratterree, Jared Scott and Adrian Chapman, members of the team that designed, built and installed the new Morris weathervane on top of the Rotary Plaza clock tower in Tryon. (photo submitted)

for his studio and his design team, comprised of local artists Cooper, Bill Ratterree, Patti Peake and Jared Scott. When shown the Brady/ Trakas rendering, Cooper immediately accepted the task. “I knew,” Cooper said, “that

the generosity of many people, acting through the Rotary, had made the clock tower a reality. I felt, too, that we had an opportunity to join with these fine people, and so, in that same spirit, (Continued on page 4)

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.

AnimAls of the seA The sea is full of life. There are thousands of different living things in the oceans of the world, many of them probably still undiscovered. The major types that we do know of are the crustaceans, the fish, the cephalopods, the echinoderms, the jellies, and the mammals. Crustaceans are like the insects of the ocean; they have an exoskeleton like land arthropods. Commonly known crustaceans are crabs, lobsters, and shrimp. Fish can range in size from tiny to gigantic. About 14,000 species have already been discovered. Fish that travel in large groups are called schools. A cephalopod is an animal that has two separate parts: a head and feet, such as an octopus or squid. The echinoderms are usually small animals that have radial symmetry and five legs, such as the starfish. They use tiny projections called tube feet to eat. The jellies are soft animals, usually called medusas in their adult form. They develop in stages, much like a frog does. The mammals are the warm-blooded animals of the ocean, such as the dolphins and whales. Ocean mammals require oxygen from the surface to breathe.

Polk library wins federal grant for computer lab upgrades The Polk County Public Library has been awarded a $19,000 grant to be used for upgrading the computer lab in Columbus. The library will use the funds to replace all the public computers and add three new workstations. The library will also create two “express stations,” which will be standing Internet access points for checking emails, printing boarding passes and other quick tasks. LSTA funds awarded by the State Library of North Carolina are made possible through funding from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of

Cultural Resources. These federal funds are investments that help libraries deliver relevant and up-to-date services for their communities. At the Polk County Public Library, the LSTA grant will provide purchase of 16 computers and furniture. Library director Cindy Nanney said, “The majority of the usage in our computer lab supports patrons that do not have access to online resources or computers at home. The upgraded computers will give our patrons a portal to emerging technologies and also alleviate waiting times. We are excited to continue to support the needs of our community.” PCPL received one of the 112 competitive grants for fiscal year 2011-2012 awarded to North

Carolina libraries from this year’s federal allotment of $4,160,471. The LSTA grant program administered by the State Library of North Carolina funds projects across the state that help libraries deliver learning opportunities for a lifetime, support libraries in their mission to provide costeffective access to the Internet and to information expertise and make library resources more accessible to all users. The IMLS is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 122,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The institute’s mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. Through the LSTA Grants to States program IMLS provides

funds to state library agencies using a population-based formula. State libraries may use the appropriation to support statewide initiatives and services; they may also distribute the funds through competitive subgrants to public, academic, school, special and research libraries.

Alzheimer’s: Disease of Babyboomer generation At the beginning of this year, Babyboomers, more than 10,000 of them a day, began turning age 65. For many, that may be good news, as retirement, Medicare and Social Security are soon going to be part of their lives. But with age 65 also comes some very frightening news – 65 is the age when the risk of developing Alzheimer ’s disease increases significantly. Current statistics indicate that one of every eight boomers will develop and die with or from Alzheimer’s disease. It will no longer be their grandparents and parents who have to deal with the disease - it will be them, 10 million of them. Here are some additional facts about this devastating, costly and heartbreaking disease: • Alzheimer’s disease is fatal – today there are no survivors, not one. • There is no sure way to prevent, cure or dramatically slow the progression of Alzheimer’s. • Alzheimer’s is a disease that impacts the entire family. • Caregivers of loved ones see the day-by-day realities of this relentless and progressive disease as it steals the patient’s memories, autonomy and independence. • Caregivers and families go through the agony of losing a loved one twice: first to the ravaging effects of the disease and then, ultimately, to actual death. • Most Alzheimer’s patients survive 4-6 years after diagnosis, but some can live for up to as many as 10 to 20 years, requiring increasing care and financial outlay for their care. Today, it is estimated that over 11 million family members and friends provide unpaid care for Alzheimer’s patients, and the demands on their time
