Dark Corner Distillery pays homage to local history Polk native opening first legal moonshine microdistillery in South Carolina by Samantha Hurst

Foothills native Joe Fenten and business partner Richard Wenger are just weeks away from opening Dark Corner Distillery in downtown Greenville. Inside the distillery’s historic 1920s building, they’ll make corn whiskey in the tradition of Upstate moonshiners, only legally. Fenten knows all about the history of moonshiners in this area. He grew up in the middle of a peach orchard right at the foot of Hogback Mountain. It was there he found himself first intrigued by the Dark Corner and the illegal whiskey men lived and died to make. “Growing up you’d see a clear jar on a table and ask what it was. Immediately (Continued on page 3)

Tryon needs significant rain to complete water plant rehab by Leah Justice

The Town of Tryon, which has encountered many obstacles in completing its water plant rehab, now must wait for heavy rains. The Army Corps of Engineers approved the permit allowing the town to complete work on intakes on the

town’s mountain water source, and although the work will only take a couple of days, the area needs to get a heavy rain first. Tryon Town Manager Justin Hembree announced during the town’s

someone would tell you, ‘Aw, that’s just water.’ But even as kids we knew better. So you can see why there’s always been a mystique to moonshine,” Fenten said. Fenten, who along with his wife, Roxanne, graduated from Polk County High School, jokes that his classmates might be surprised by the theme of his new business. He said he was definitely not a partier in high school. He didn’t have his first drink until he was 21, he said, and didn’t take a sip of his first beer until last year. But Fenten said he felt a sense of pride in the idea of crafting something of real quality and history. “The spirit of the distiller is involved in the whiskey,” Fenten said. “All of our heritage is there in the Dark Corner and there are still a lot of good people there. That history goes a lot deeper (Continued on page 4)

than people getting drunk. Those were hard times and families could make a lot more money off a pint of whiskey than they could a bushel of corn.” Plus Wenger, who is a close friend of Fenten’s, has homebrewed beer for more than a decade. When South Carolina passed legislation in 2009 lessening the hefty fees required of micro distilleries, Fenten and Wenger were working an engineering job in New York. The two began throwing around the idea of opening a micro distillery over dinner and immediately went back to their hotel rooms to hash out a business plan. They got serious about their plan in July 2010 and just a year later find themselves weeks away from opening their new venture.

“Growing up you’d see a clear jar on a table and ask what it was. Immediately someone would tell you, ‘Aw, that’s just water.’ But even as kids we knew better.” -- Joe Fenten

“You want to get out and do something for yourself, but then again you want to be a part of this effort to support local businesses,” Fenten said. “We’ve found a way to do both.” Part of crafting this business involved hand-sketching a design for the whiskey still itself. Fenten and Wenger pored over historic photos of actual moonshine stills to get the look and design as close (Continued on page 6)

to the traditional method as possible. A company in Spartanburg then fashioned the still out of copper and connected it to an oak barrel. While the typical industrystandard still can hold about 150 gallons, Dark Corner Distillery’s setup only works with 80 gallons at a time. This is just the way Fenten and Wenger want it, though. Fenten said the two are after quality before they try overflowing shelves with huge amounts of their whiskey. Another key step in the process was getting the recipe just right. To call a product corn whiskey it must contain 80 percent corn. The other 20 percent can be made up of other grains, such as the red wheat, malted barley and rye Fenten and Wenger plan to use. “When moonshine is made right it’s very smooth and you should be able to taste those local grains,” Fenten said. For Dark Corner Distillery that means tasting the nuances of grains grown right in South Carolina – Suber Mill in Greer and Haygood Mill in Pickens, two of the oldest mills in South Carolina, will provide white corn and white cornmeal. Once the distillery is open, visitors will be able to witness the entire process from start to finish – doughing in grains, churning the mash and pitching the yeast. Dark Corner Distillery plans to sell its moonshine at 100 proof, though they’ve made batches up to 115 proof. Fenten said customers wouldn’t find neutral grain

spirits (vodka or gin), which are high in alcohol content but lacking in flavor, in this distillery. “We don’t want to water down our product,” Fenten said. “We want it to be flavorful and robust.” Moonshine got its name from its makers’ necessity to cook it under the light of the moon so law enforcement wouldn’t see smoke from the smoldering fires. Since this distillery’s product is legal, there won’t be a need for hidden copper pots tucked into the woods. Instead, Fenten and Wenger have blended this old hill tradition with the modern life setting of Main Street America but in a building originally constructed in 1925. Inside what used to be a local radio station and O’Neal Williams Sporting Goods, the business partners have transformed a blank store space to resemble a cave-like dark corner. The walls inside the distillery are covered with a rough textured paint effect and exposed brick that glisten in the light just as one imagines a back corner of a mountain area would look like. The front half of the distillery, meanwhile, has tables set up on overturned oak barrels. In this section, the distillery will display a variety of local mountain crafts made from materials of the Upstate such as jewelry, cutting boards and stained glass, as well as a variety of foods such as honey and moonshine infused items like peach salsa.

June 21 meeting that the Army Corps of Engineers approved the town’s permit to complete the intakes. The town had been waiting for the permit to be approved since January, after a stop work order was issued last December. The town’s intakes are located on town property, but access to the property is through an easement from the Tryon Garden Club, which owns the surrounding property. Tryon Garden Club officials expressed concern over the work because of silt. They said earlier this year they just want to ensure the work is done properly. The rehabilitation of the intakes for the mountain water source is the only task remaining to complete the town’s water plant rehab. After that work is complete, the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) must take samples to ensure the treatment center is working properly. The corps of engineers and DENR prefer the work on the intakes be done during a major rain event, according to Hembree, so the silt will be diluted with the water. Tryon began its water plant rehab in 2009. Original estimates were for the work to take one year. The town financed approximately $3 million for the project. Part of the rehab is to bring the town’s former mountain water source back online to use in addition to its Lake Lanier water source. Town officials have expressed concern over the delays, because of the costs of continuing to pump water out of the lake when the town could

be using its mountain water, which is gravity fed. The town spent $26,000 in fiscal year 2009-2010 pumping water out of Lake Lanier. Once the mountain water is usable again, town officials said they think savings are possible from less pumping. The town’s water plant, located off Carolina Drive, first went online in 1988. The rehabilitation project was required for the plant to meet current state guidelines. Prior to 1988, mountain water was Tryon’s only water source, but the town abandoned the mountain water when it constructed the water plant and began using water from Lake Lanier. The town owns the bed of Lake Lanier and has jurisdiction over the water. Following a drought in 2003, when the town had to impose mandatory water restrictions, officials decided while the town was upgrading the water plant, it should also make changes that would allow mountain water to again be available as a water source. The turbidity of Lake Lanier and the mountain water is different, so different processing has to be done to combine the two sources. Two intakes, one on Fork Creek and another on Colt Creek, are the last of the upgrades needed in order to use both water sources. Upgrades already completed at the water plant include renovating the old water plant building into offices, with the downstairs of the old building converted into the chemical plant. A new outdoor facility was also constructed, which gives the town more retention time. The upgrades have also included replacing eight chemical feed pumps and fixing the old water plant roof, among other work.

Polk June unemployment rate rises, following state trend by Barbara Tilly

Polk County’s unemployment rate rose .5 percent in June, from 7.2 percent in May to 7.7 percent in June, according to the latest figures from the North Carolina Employment Security Commission (ESC). Polk followed a statewide trend of rising unemployment in June. Unemployment rates rose in 91 of North Carolina’s 100 counties in June. Rates decreased in six counties and remained the same in three. “What we are seeing in most metropolitan areas across North Carolina is a loss in government employment,” said ESC Chairman Lynn R. Holmes. “This is partially attributed to changes in local and state education at the end of the school year. The ESC’s mission, along with our economic and workforce development partners, is to put people back to work.” The county’s rate is still one of the lowest in the state. Currituck County had the lowest rate at 5.6 percent, followed by Hyde at 6.9 percent, Chatham at 7.0 percent, Orange at 7.2 percent, Gates at 7.5 percent and then Polk at 7.7 percent. Scotland County had the state’s highest unemployment rate at 17.1 percent, up 0.8 percent from last month. Edgecombe County had the second highest rate at 15.5 percent, up one percent from May. Polk County’s June rate reflected 1.1 percentage point drop from last June, when Polk’s rate was 8.8 percent. Statewide, North Carolina’s unemployment rate (not seasonally adjusted) rose from 9.7 in May to 10.4 in June. The state’s rate was 1.2 percent higher than the national rate in June, which was 9.2 percent. In the state’s metropolitan statistical areas, unemployment rates

The Durham/Chapel Hill area had the lowest rate at 8.0 percent, which increased 0.7 of a percentage point from the previous month. Asheville followed at 8.2 percent. Polk County had a labor force of 9,283 in May, of whom 713 were on the unemployment rolls, up from 659 in May. Statewide, the number of people who were unemployed in June was 469,472. South Carolina's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in June increased from 10.0 percent in May to 10.5 percent in June, accodrding to figures from the Employers Association of South Carolina. The employment rate increase in June stems from a higher number of people seeking work, combined with a decrease in job openings. Spartanburg County’s jobless rate rose from 10.4 percent in May to 11.7 percent in June, an increase of 1.3 percent. The rate in Greenville County also rose, from 8.5 to 9.4 percent. These rates are nearly identical to those of June 2010.

More jobs coming to Asheville, Spartanburg areas While unemployment rates remain high, at least some regional employers are creating new jobs. Sitel plans to add 60 workers over the next few weeks at its call center facility in South Asheville. The company said it recently signed a contract with a financial services company that will result in increased call volume. The expansion will raise Sitel’s employment at the center to 600, up from 300 in 2008. According to the N.C. Employment Security Commission, the metro area that includes Buncombe, Henderson, Madison and Haywood counties added 300 net jobs in June, although the unemployment rate for the region rose to 8.2 percent, up from 7.7 percent in May. In Upstate South Carolina, BMW announced plans to hire 100 white-collar employees at its Spartanburg plant as the company launches a new recruitment program, BMW Scholars and a $5 million Associate Family Health Center. BMW said it needs to fill a variety of positions, including engineers, IT professionals and product management associates. BMW is partnering with Spartanburg Community College, Greenville Technical College and Tri-County Technical College to create the BMW Scholars program, which will provide work experience to students interested in a skilled manufacturing career. The apprentice program will help students gain a range of skills while obtaining a two-year college degree. They also will gain

the chance to be considered for full-time employment at BMW. The company’s new health center will be available to BMW associates, their dependents and eligible retirees. The center includes medical and primary health care services, along with vision, dental, occupational health and physical therapy services. The center, which also includes an associate family pharmacy, is expected to reduce healthcare costs by allowing BMW to better manage employees’ healthcare.

Around the Region

*** BMW Manufacturing Co. announced plans to convert landfill gas into hydrogen that it can use to power the entire material-handling fleet at its Spartanburg County plant. The company, since 2003, has used methane gas collected from a local landfill to supply more than 50 percent of the plant’s energy needs. In 2009 BMW invested $12 million to further enhance its landfill gas program, which it estimates has reduced carbon emissions from the plant by about 92,000 tons per year and saved the company about $5 million annually in energy costs. Last year, BMW installed a hydrogen storage and distribution area and began using hydrogen fuel cells to power about 100 material handling vehicles at the Greer plant. The new project will allow BMW to expand its landfill gas conversion to a full-scale system that can support the largest single-site deployment (Continued on page 19)

of fuel cell material handling equipment in the world. Josef Kerscher, president of BMW Manufacturing, said the project will allow BMW to test technology and determine whether locally sourced hydrogen can be used to expand the company’s hydrogen fuel cell fleet. BMW is also collaborating with the U.S. Department of Energy to develop efficient storage of hydrogen for use in future motor vehicles.

*** Fehrer Automotive, an interna tional supplier for the automobile industry, plans to invest $14 million and create 130 new jobs at its plant in Spartanburg County over the next five years. The company said it’s partnering with state and county agencies on the project that will better position it for future growth at its expanded Duncan plant. Fehrer Automotive produces a wide range of supplies for the automotive industry, including car seats, arm rests, side bolsters, headrests and trim panels. Lewis F. Gossett, president and CEO of the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance, said Fehrer’s expansion “is another strong endorsement of South Carolina’s growing international leadership role in the automotive industry.” Fehrer, founded in 1875 in Germany, plans to begin hiring additional workers for its Duncan operations in September.

Carolina. Beginning in the second quarter of 2013, the company plans to produce an additional 4,750 passenger and light truck tires per day at the plant to meet increased demand. Bridgestone’s facility in Aiken County began operations in 1998 and earned LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council in 2009. The Aiken plant is one of only three tire plants in the country that are recognized as a Voluntary Protection Program Star site, the highest honor given by OSHA for safety and health management.

*** The North Carolina Eugenics Task Force has recommended that victims of a forced sterilization program be compensated by the state. The task force recommends payments to each of the approximately 2,000 victims who are still alive. The task force did not specify an amount, although the state’s Industrial Commission previously suggested $20,000 to each victim. One state legislator previously recommended $50,000 to each victim. The task force did not recommend compensation to the families of deceased victims. The state estimated that about 7,600 people were sterilized under the program that ended in 1974. The program was started by the state in an attempt to reduce the public cost of welfare. Some of the victims were criminals or patients in mental institutions, while others were poor.

Are you 100% sure if you died today that you would go to Heaven? You can be sure! How to Find New Life in Christ

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:

The funds will be used to permanently protect land along designated scenic byways, such as the Blue Ridge Parkway. Margaret Lillard of the Conservation Trust for North

Carolina said the funds will help make up for the loss of funding in the state’s new budget. She said funding for North Carolina’s four natural resource trust funds was cut by about 85 percent in the new state budget. The Drovers Road Scenic Byway land acquisition project, administered by the Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy and the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, will be one of the projects to benefit from the federal grant. The byway runs through Hickory Nut Gorge. The federal funds also will be used to preserve 128 acres at the Heffner Gap Overlook along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The privately held land near Spruce Pine will fill a gap in the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail.

record for the fastest throughhike ever on the Appalachian Trail. She completed the 2,181mile trail in just 46 days, 11 hours and 20 minutes. To do so, she had to average 46 miles a day, burning up to 7,000 calories a day. Pharr hiked for 15 to 18 hours each day without running or jogging. She was supported by a small team, which included her husband. The team provided food, water and a tent at certain points along the way. Davis previously set the female hiker time record in 2008. This year she beat that time by 11 days and topped the male hiker record set in 2005 by one day. She began her journey on Mount Katahdin in Maine on June 15 with a 56-mile day. Pharr said the trail has always been a very special place for her and she wanted to “go back and see how quickly I could do it.”

WCCR Club presents Merriment Players in live performance Aug. 15 The Western Carolina Classic Radio Club will meet Monday, Aug. 15 at 2 p.m. in the auditorium on the ICC Polk campus. The club will host a live performance by The Merriment Players, featuring Bill Drake and Gary Poole. Drake of 103.3 FM radio, is in his 52nd year of broadcast radio, the last 35 in the Spartanburg area. Poole is a former editor-inchief at Western Publishing in New York City and has created scripts for Warner Brothers’ cartoon characters Bugs Bunny, Tweety and Sylvestor, as well as Gold Key Comics’ Yosemite Sam, Little Lulu and Bullwinkle. Organizers say if you like Bob and Ray, you will enjoy Drake and Poole’s satirical and humorous look at old-time radio shows. The old-time radio presentation

will be the suspense play “Sorry, Wrong Number,” probably the second best known radio play after “The War of the Worlds.” “Sorry” was first presented May 25, 1943 and has been repeated seven times over the years. “Sorry, Wrong Number” was always a headache for the phone company, which could always count on many calls from listeners condemning the insensitivity of its operators. At the equipment change, Professor Hoyt will hold a trivia quiz. The summer jazz series will follow with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band – “a bridge across the ages, a link between the present-day and the heyday of traditional New Orleans music.” The program is free. All are welcome. – article submitted

Tryon Arts and Crafts hosts luthier Gerald Anderson Tryon Arts and Crafts School will host a guitar building workshop with renowned luthier Gerald Anderson on Sept. 20-30. This workshop will offer students the opportunity to build their own, one-of-a-kind guitar. The workshop will end with a concert for the students and Anderson. Over the 10 days, students will learn the entire procedure of guitar building. Students will construct a Martin D-18 style acoustic guitar with a spruce top and mahogany body. Anderson, one of the most respected luthiers in the country, will share the expertise he has gained over the past 30 years. The workshop begins on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9 a.m. Each day will offer students new information as they work with Anderson and his apprentice, Spencer Strickland. Because of the special nature of the workshop, space is limited to four students. Anderson began making mandolins 29 years ago under the guidance of Wayne Henderson and has since crafted more than 200 instruments. After he graduated from college, Anderson spent considerable time in the famous guitar maker’s workshop in Rugby, Va., observing and play-

ing music with Henderson. He soon developed a desire to create his own fine-quality instruments. His early goal was to reproduce the sounds of the classic Gibson-Loar mandolins of the 1920s. He continued to share a workspace with Henderson until just recently when Anderson moved his tools and instruments into the bottom level of his home. Anderson now shares his expertise and workshop with apprentice Spencer Strickland. In the many years Anderson has been crafting instruments he has also played old-time music with friends including Wayne Henderson and Butch Barker. Anderson has made more than 25 recordings and has more than 200 ribbons from musical competitions; the most prestigious being best guitar player at the 2003 Galax Fiddlers Convention. Anderson was among the region’s 12 musicians who participated in the Crooked Road Goes to Scotland Tour in May 2006. Advance registration and a deposit is required to reserve your place in the workshop.

Hanna Brown, the summer intern at Polk County Public Library. (photo submitted)

Polk community foundation provides library internship Like most 15-year olds, Hanna Brown loves her laptop. She also loves music, photography, art and movies. She even loves baking vegan desserts. But most of all, Hanna loves books. This made her a good match for the Polk County Public Library’s summer intern position. The internship is funded by the Polk County Community Foundation and provides a local teen with the opportunity to experience library work first hand. “I love books, so understandably, I love libraries,” Brown said. “I have always enjoyed coming to the Polk County Library, and I was thrilled to find such a perfect summer job for me. Brown said she has been drawn to books since she was little. “There’s something about a book that immerses you in a world completely unlike your own,” she said. “There are books that are made to entertain, and then there are those books with a message, a story that will stay with you forever. Those are the books I love best.”

Brown was pleased that the summer internship was flexible enough to allow her to pursue two of her other goals: taking summer classes at Isothermal’s Virtual College and attending the Polk County High School Cadets marching band camp. “My experience at the library has been wonderful,” she said. “I have learned about library sciences and have a new respect for the people who run them. I am very excited for upcoming developments, such as the possibility for a new teen area I got to take part in shaping. “I attended the summer reading program events and got the chance to work with some very talented people. I practiced my photography skills by taking pictures of the events, and the kids were wonderful. “This has been an amazing opportunity for me and I have loved my time at the library. I’ve gained a lot of valuable work experience there and for that I’m very grateful.” –article submitted by Joy Sharp

Robert ‘Bob’ Shuford

Robert L. Shuford III, 71, of Columbus passed away after declining health Aug. 1, 2011 at St. Luke’s Hospital. Born in 1939, he was the son of the late Robert and Helen Shuford Jr. R o b ert “Bob” Shuford III started his life on his father’s farm, called Deepdene, in Newton, N.C. Prior to Robert’s birth, his grandfather R.L. Shuford Sr. built a successful Jersey dairy and ice cream operation known as Oakwood Farm, where they sold 40,000 gallons of ice cream per year. Robert loved this farm and in 2003 he was able to purchase Oakwood and began his dream of repair and restoration that continues today. In Robert’s younger years, his father, R.L. Shuford Jr., moved the family and their full blooded Jerseys to the Columbus-Tryon area and started a dairy called Weaverbarton. Robert chose to live the remainder of his life on the farm.

Friday, August 5, 2011

On Saturday, Oct. 20, 2007, at 9:30 a.m., Dr. Robert Shuford, along with the Pacolet Area Conservancy, dedicated the opening of the Weaverbarton Shuford Memorial Wildlife Sanctuary trail. Robert spoke fondly of his mother and family and opened the wildlife trail to the public. He was a member of the Democrats Men’s Club, attained a doctoral degree from the University of Munich and taught Latin at Charlotte Country Day School. It is important to know that Robert cherished his friendships, loved caring for his animals, enjoyed the outdoors and truly was a great conservationist. He will be greatly missed. Survivors include one sister, Carla Shuford of Chapel Hill, N.C.; Jack and Charles Wilfong of Newton, N.C.; Johnny Wilfong of Fla.; Nancy Wilfong of Newton, N.C., and a special friend and caregiver, Carrie McFalls of Tryon. A private service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pacolet Area Conservancy, 850 N. Trade St., Tryon, N.C. 28782 or to the Catawba Lands Conservancy, 105 W. Morehead Street, Suite B, Charlotte, N.C. 28202. An online guest register is available at www.mcfarlandfuneralchapel.com. McFarland Funeral Chapel, Tryon.

Outreach speaks to Kiwanis Carol Newton, executive director of Thermal Belt Outreach, and Michelle Reedy, client services coordinator, spoke to the Tryon Kiwanis Club recently on “Kindness Matters” and the services Outreach provides to the community. Outreach’s Feed-a-Kid program gives a bag of food for the weekend to 289 children every week during the school year. School supply closets, filled with needed clothing and shoes, also allow Outreach to care for children. The Angel Tree is a program to collect and distribute Christmas gifts to those in need.

The food pantry aids families whose income does not stretch far enough to buy sufficient food each month. Other programs include supplies for vegetable gardening in the spring, firewood in the winter, assistance with job searches, and crisis assistance with power and water bills. Newton and Reedy said donations of money and volunteer time are always needed at Outreach, which is located in Columbus at 134 White Drive.

Tryon native son lives his dream on the links by Daniel Hecht

It has been said that if a person is lucky enough to earn a living doing what they love, then that person is, by definition, lucky enough. As the golf course superintendent at the Tryon Country Club, Freddie Edwards knows he is indeed fortunate to have forged a career working in and around the game that he loves. Edwards, a Tryon native, grew up on the course at TCC, making his debut at the age of 9, and credits his father for fueling his desire to work in the golf business. “My dad used to be the co-pro with Cecil Turner at the Tryon Country Club,” said Edwards. “When I was of age to play, he dropped his pro status so that we could play together in amateur tournaments.” Edwards notched his first tournament victory, the Dixie Junior Championship, at the age of 14, and went on to lead the golf team at Tryon High School, earning the title of MVP four years running. His prowess on the links led to an offer of a golf scholarship at the University of Tennessee. While at Knoxville, Edwards continued to hone his craft, and as team captain led the Volunteers to the 1980 SEC golf championship. Even today, more than 30 years later, Edwards still holds three of the university’s course records. After graduating with a degree in recreational grounds management, Edwards was encouraged by coaches and fellow players to get his pro card, but instead chose

a different path. “I had a lot of people trying to convince me to turn pro, but I’m more of a homebody, and don’t like to travel all that much,” explained Edwards. “I ended up getting married and was satisfied with playing in local, state and southeast regional golf tournaments.” To say Edwards has enjoyed success at the local, state and regional levels is certainly an understatement. The man friends call “Little Bear” has won both the WNC Open and the WNC Amateur three times, the Rhododendron

Landrum High girls basketball coach Roy Parton retires from coaching Coach Roy Parton has resigned as the head girls varsity basketball coach at Landrum High School. Coach Parton had a successful career in education in North Carolina as a coach, teacher and administrator before retiring and has spent the past seven years as a coach at Landrum High School in girls soccer and basketball. He had retired from soccer after this past season. He will remain on the teaching staff at Landrum Middle school. Athletic Director John Cann said

“Coach Parton is a good man with a great family and has done a lot for our girls soccer and basketball programs over the past seven years. We appreciate all he has done for us and wish him the best.” Coach Deon Brice, formerly the head girls JV basketball coach at Landrum has been promoted and named as the new interim head girls basketball coach. Coach Tammy Compton will remain as the varsity assistant coach. – article submitted by John Cann

to the big “five-five” so he can compete on the Carolinas Golf Association senior circuit. “The CGA has a wonderful schedule of senior events, and I should do well in that,” said Edwards. Given his proven track record of success and his passion for the game, there is little doubt that the Little Bear will continue to accomplish big things on courses throughout the southeast.

Snowy, a miracle in the making 1x3.5 f

When I was 8 years old I was spending a few weeks at my grandparents’ farm in Connecticut. One day I spotted a young hawk flopping on the ground and I feared that Brownie, our farm shepherd, would get hold of it. I ran into the house, took the comforter off of grandma’s bed and tossed it over the bird. I then found an old banana carton that had a lid, s t u ff e d m y p i l l o w o n t h e bottom and placed the bird inside. I put it on a low shelf in the barn and began feeding it worms.

Dear Senior, Tom Conlon There are actually numerous discounts, tuition waivers, tax credits and other deals that can 1x1.5go back to school a help retirees f 4/11 Here’s - 6/27what you little cheaper. should know. From continuing education and enrichment classes to graduate school, more and more retirees are heading back to the classroom looking to pursue their interest, connect with other people or retool for a new career. But with the high cost of college these days, paying tuition, fees and books can be a big strain for many older adults living on a fixed income. Here are some tips that can help you save.

1x1.5Discounted tuition YourW+f first step to contact 5/23, untilis 6/18 your nearby college to find out 6/20iffany, tfn deals they offer rewhat,

tirees. Many community colleges and some four-year colleges for example, allow senior citizens to audit classes for free and many offer significantly discounted 0tfn5fri - inDD tuition- page rates 4for those who take them for credit. In fact, according to Fastweb, a college financial aid resource, 21 states and Washington, D.C.,

Savvy Senior offer free tuition for senior citizens at some or all of their public colleges. Textbook costs and sometimes fees are, however, not covered. Credits and deductions Uncle Sam can offer some assistance, too, in the form of tax credits and deductions. For credits, check out the Lifetime Learning tax credit that allows students of any age to claim up to a $2,000 credit each year for college or other post-secondary school expenses. There is also the American Opportunity credit, which allows an annual tax credit up to $2,500. The government also provides tuition and fees deductions for students that can cover up to $4,000 in expenses. But, you can choose only one of these three tax breaks – Lifetime Learning credit, American Opportunity credit or the tuition and fees deduction. To learn more about these benefits, visit the IRS’s Tax Benefits for Education Information Center, which you can access at TaxBenefitsForEducation.info. Scholarships While most scholarships are aimed at traditional undergraduates, there are a number of scholarships offered specifically to adult and non-traditional students. Two good websites to help you find them are fastweb.com and scholarships.com, both of which offer scholarship databases and easy-to-use search tools.

Lifelong learning Beyond college classes, another popular and inexpensive option for retirees is Lifelong Learning Institutes (LLIs). These are noncredit educational programs that involve no tests or grades, just learning for the pure joy of it. Usually affiliated with colleges and universities, LLIs offer a wide array of academic courses in such areas as literature, history, religion, philosophy, science, art and architecture, economics, finance, computers, lifestyle issues and more. To find an LLI, call your closest college or search the websites of the two organizations that support and facilitate them – Osher (osher.net) and Elderhostel (www.roadscholar. org/ein/intro.asp). Together they support more than 500 LLI programs nationwide. If you don’t find an LLI in your area, depending on where you live, there are other organizations that offer non-credit older adult education courses like Oasis (oasisnet.org, 314862-2933), Shepherd’s Centers of America (shepherdcenters.org, 816-960-2022), and SeniorNet (seniornet.org, 571-203-7100), which offers computer courses at learning centers around the country. Also, be sure to contact your local public library. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

Identifying a compatible grantmaker In the last article we shared information on finding grants. In this article we will talk about the steps for identifying a grant maker or foundation. The first step in identifying a grant maker or foundation is to know your search criteria. This criteria should include keywords that define the subject matter of the grant for which you are applying. It can also include the target population your grant will be used for and any other factors that fit your grant interest. Step two is to determine the type of support which you are looking to find. This could be operating support for a new or current program, capital support for a new building or equipment need or general support to help with current overhead cost in your nonprofit. Once you have identified the keywords and type of support, perform a search for local or within your region, grant makers or foundations. These are going to be your top funders to contact. Step three: before contacting the potential grant makers or foundations make sure to do your homework on them. You want to know as much as you can about the foundation or grant maker to make sure they are a good fit for your nonprofit to apply. Information that should

Nonprofit Leadership Melissa Le Roy

be looked at includes past grant recipients, the amounts awarded, current board or trustee members, current staff members, past 990s or 990 PFs and annual reports. Step four: visit their website. One of the complaints you hear a lot with foundations over and over at nonprofit conferences, is “I wish nonprofits would take the time to look at our website.” A lot of the questions around what the foundation funds and the application process can be found on their websites, so make sure and spend some time on their website before making contact to introduce yourself, the nonprofit you work for and to see if the program officer thinks your idea is a good fit. Always go back to the website before submitting a grant proposal or in between submitting proposals. Grant application processes change often and so do the dates the applications are due. Step five: you should start perfecting the proposal that speaks to each individual funder. A common mistake is to use one proposal and send it to a lot of different funders please don’t make this mistake. With all the information you have

collected in the above steps you should be able to write a proposal that will speak to each funder’s program officer and have an idea of how much to ask of each identified funder. Step six: combine all the collected information into a spreadsheet to include the program of your organization that most closely aligns with each potential’s funding interests, your proposed request amount, deadline dates and any other relevant information. Also use& this list as a tool Strauss Associates, PAto show your staff, board and volunteers Estate to see if Planning any of them have and Administration a personal connection with any of Attorneys the foundations or grant makers.

The next article will focus on the steps for writing the grant, starting with the cover letter.

Q. What is probate anyway? a. In a nutshell, the probate process is a court proceeding that establishes the validity of a will and provides oversight to ensure accuracy in accounting for a decedent's assets, fairness in the treatment of heirs, and protection for the rights of the decedent's creditors. the process begins with the presentation of the will and can take on average 6 to 12 months. Of course this depends on the complexity of the estate and whether there are any challenges to the will. It is not necessary to hire a lawyer for every probate. If the assets are simple and there are no tax or other complexities and the executor is available in the state and has the time and capacity to handle the matters that arise, the executor can complete the process without attorney involvement.

If a child is mature and generally manages his or her life well, there is no reason for a trust to be unduly restrictive. In that case, a trust can actually be a "gift within a gift" providing access to funds for the child, but protecting the funds from ex-spouses and judgment creditors. If the child is not financially astute, a trust can provide a safety net for them, one that they cannot dissipate for nonessential expenses. In either case, you would just be helping your child fulfill the hopes and dreams you have for them. For answers on this or other estate planning issues call (828) 696-1811.
