Mintz murder suspect asks for court appointed attorney Friends, family of murder victim attend hearing by Leah Justice

Travis McGraw, the suspect in the murder of his wife, Vanessa Mintz, asked for a courtappointed attorney this week during Polk County Superior Court. McGraw has been charged

with first-degree murder in the death of Mintz, who was found shot to death on Feb. 19, 2011 at the Saluda Mountain Lodge. Mintz was working at the lodge that morning. Her family owned the lodge at the time of her murder. McGraw, who was 44 at the time of his arrest, appeared in superior court Monday, July 25 with Judge Mark Powell presiding. Powell referred McGraw’s

request to Indigent Defense Services, which will assign McGraw an attorney. A few friends and family of Mintz’s attended Monday’s hearing in support of the murder victim. They were wearing buttons with Mintz’s picture and ribbons in honor of her memory. A grand jury scheduled to meet this week could consider whether to issue an indictment

for murder on McGraw, according to court officials. McGraw was arrested on Feb. 23, and a judge found probable cause to issue first-degree murder charges on March 9. Investigators said they found a bullet in McGraw’s truck that matched the bullet that killed Mintz. McGraw is being held at the N.C. Department of Corrections on no bond.

town accepting the restaurant’s annexation request. About 40 people attended the public hearing, which is the largest audience Columbus council has likely seen in years. Residents in favor of the annexation said it would be a win/ win for the town and the fine dining restaurant. Some Columbus residents, however, said they don’t want the town to grow any larger and they have concerns about what the property could be in the future. Giardini owners Joe Laudisio and Mary Lyth requested to be voluntarily annexed into the city limits of Columbus. If approved, the annexation would be a voluntary satellite annexation, meaning the property is not contiguous to the town. The satellite voluntary annexation also means that the town would not be required to extend utility service, such as water and sewer.

Lyth said the restaurant wants over the proposed annexation. “I do worry that another owner to be annexed in order to sell beer and wine.

John Gargiulo called it a win/ win as well, saying he thinks the restaurant being a part of Columbus will benefit the town, the area and the restaurant. “I see no reason in the world why they should not be annexed,” said Gargiulo. Patricia Gass said the town should annex the restaurant because they support the local economy and sell organic food that is grown in Polk County. “I think they have given a tremendous boost to Columbus’ image,” said Gass. “I hope council will make the necessary arrangement to annex them so they can prosper more.” But Columbus resident Kathleen Kent said she didn’t hear any of the people in support say where they live. Most of the people in support lived outside of (Continued on page 7)

Recreation is important part of area residents’ lives Members of the Polk County Recreation Advisory Board held the first in a series of public meetings Tuesday night to gather input from the community regarding what its needs are recreationally. Does the community need more walking trails, more organized sporting events, more yoga classes or disc golf? While the recreation department hopes members of the community take time to fill out their survery regarding all of the county’s public parks and recreational facilities (the survey can be found online at www.polknc.org or at the county offices in the Womack Building in Columbus), they also want to hear from community members first hand. The next three meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 2 at Isothermal Community College in Columbus, Tuesday, Aug. 9 at Polk County Middle School and Tuesday, Aug. 16 at Saluda Elementary School. In the meantime, surveys can be dropped off at Stearns Gym in Columbus or mailed to Polk County Recreation, P.O. Box 308, Columbus, N.C. 28722. Surveys are due to be turned in by Sept. 15. Our local county leaders, even beyond the typical political spectrum of county government, can only do their jobs well with input from all of us. They can’t improve upon things if they don’t know what it is the community thinks needs improvement. So, voice your opinion and let them know if you think walking trails need more lighting or if you’d like to see more adult recreational activities. Like they say in politics, you shouldn’t complain if you didn’t vote. For more information, call Polk County Recreation Director Patty Aldred at 828-894-8199 or Jim Patterson, chairman of the Polk County Recreation Board, at 828-817-4407. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

Community fund created for beautification of Tryon and Landrum From her home on Mockingbird Hill, Mary Kessler enjoyed a unique view of Landrum and Tryon. Her connection to both communities will be remembered through a endowment fund created at the Polk County Community Foundation. Kessler’s will directed the community foundation to establish The Mary F. Kessler Fund to be used exclusively for projects, programs and facilities contributing to the physical and scenic improvement, development or beautification of the towns of Landrum and Tryon, and the cultural, intellectual and educational development of its citizens. Grants will be awarded equally between the two towns over time. Kessler funds became available in September 2010 and have already funded grants that matched the donor’s criteria. The city of Landrum has

received grants to begin restoration of its historic railroad depot, which played a major role in the founding of the town in 1880. The Town of Tryon and the Tryon Downtown Development Association were awarded a grant to make safety and appearance improvements to the intersection of New Market and South Trade Streets. O . P. E a r l e E l e m e n t a r y School in Landrum received a grant to pilot its “Community Arts Evenings” project, which has involved local artists in the arts education of its students and the public. The Kessler Fund is a permanent endowment fund, which will contribute a percentage of its assets each year for grantmaking to eligible Landrum and Tryon projects that match the funding criteria. Grant recommendations will be made by a foundation grants committee

based on written applications, interviews and a voting system. The Community Foundation makes grants to non-profit organizations throughout the Polk County area and also has the capacity to direct funds designated for individual communities according to donors’ charitable wishes. “The Foundation is honored to help Mary Kessler turn her dreams for our community into reality,” said president and CEO Elizabeth Nager. “The benefits of her gift to the residents of Landrum and Tryon will be experienced now and for generations to come.” Additional grants will be awarded from the Mary F.
