One man's trash is another's treasure Once upon a time, not

by Barbara Tilly

so long ago, a local couple

happened upon a skinny little Appaloosa mare in a dirt lot. Her owner no longer wanted to trail ride her; she wasn’t needed any more. Luckily this couple knew a few things about horses and decided to take her home with them and find the little mare a new family. Some extra food, good grass and a few trail rides later this couple put an ad up in the local feed store. At this very same time, a sweet “horse crazy” young girl had convinced her parents to let her take some riding lessons. She caught the bug and now dreamed of having her own horse. After some poking and prodding her parents answered an ad they found at the local feed store: an Appaloosa mare – for sale! The little girl, whose name is Amanda, met the little mare, who’s name is Nia, and as most dreams happen (when they come true) it was destined they be together.

Local fiber group meets today at Mill Spring Ag Center

Amanda started to take lessons from a local professional. After about six weeks of lessons Amanda and Nia

entered the Foothills Riding Club Horse Trial at FENCE where they won their dressage class and successfully

completed the cross-country course and stadium jumping. They ended up high point!

Area spinners, weavers, knitters, quilters, embroiderers and other fiber artists are invited to a meeting of a local fiber group Tuesday, Aug. 16 from 6-8 p.m. at the Mill Spring Agricultural Center. The group was formed recently to find creative ways to grow the local fiber economy and revive the area’s rich history of textile traditions. Hosted by Mountain BizWorks for the purpose of supporting the fiber arts, the group works together with Handmade in America to establish a regional branding and marketing program to build a sustainable, successful fiber

economy for Polk County and the surrounding area. Some of the ideas for possible activities and events discussed at the group’s July meeting included: • Developing a garden of plants for dyeing use and possibly a shared dyeing studio; • Developing a directory of local resources for yarns, supplies, dyers, weavers, spinners, knitters, quilters, embroiderers and others involved in fiber production, processing and use; • Hosting a “fiber tour” that would allow participants to visit fiber-related sites, including local (Continued on page 5)

Margaret Louise Forbes

Margaret Louise Forbes, local champion of education and philanthropy, passed away on Aug. 12, 2011 at the age of 96. Margaret lived in Polk County for more than 40 years. Margaret dedicated herself to serving her community through generous charitable giving, volunteering and tireless work, to expand educational opportunities for children and students. Born May 9, 1915 in Flint, Mich., Margaret was the only child of Bernice and Harvey Dodds. Margaret and her family spent the summers on Lake Long, Mich., where she became a strong swimmer. She attended Central High in Michigan, playing the lead in many plays before graduating in 1933. She went on to the University of Michigan, where she excelled in history and music, and was a classical pianist with her own studio on campus. She was a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority, graduating in 1938, the same year she married her high school sweetheart, Stuart Forbes. Stuart was an executive with Ethyl Gasoline Corporation. Margaret and Stuart lived in many different cities and towns across the United States. They loved to travel and made extensive trips overseas for business and pleasure. When Stuart retired in the 1970s, the couple moved to Red Fox where Stuart, an exceptional golfer, could be close to the golf course. Margaret volunteered with the St. Luke’s Auxiliary and the Green Blades Garden Club. Margaret attended the Congregational Church and Jackson’s Grove Methodist Church during her years in Polk County. Following Stuart’s death in 1985, Margaret founded the

Stuart and Margaret L. Forbes Scholarship Program at the Polk County Community Foundation. Margaret became increasingly committed to supporting organizations in the community and continually sought out opportunities to enrich children’s lives and the quality of their education. Margaret’s vision and major charitable gifts have provided extraordinary benefits to children and citizens in our community.

In 1995, Margaret purchased and donated the Duke Power building in Tryon to the school system for the Forbes Preschool Center, to be used as a full-day preschool. The Forbes preschool, with its highly successful program for children in Polk County, was dedicated by Governor James B. Hunt and served as an impetus for establishing preschool programs at every elementary school in North Carolina. In 1998, Margaret formed the Stuart and Margaret L. Forbes Foundation, which has distributed more than $400,000 in scholarships to high school students and grants to local organizations. In support of teachers, Margaret also endowed a scholarship fund at the N.C. Center for the Advancement of Teaching, which provides an annual week of training for the Polk County teacher of the year. In honor of her extraordinary

service, in 2003 Governor Michael F. Easley presented Margaret Forbes with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, among North Carolina’s most prestigious awards, which recognizes “special confidence in the integrity, learning and zeal” of its recipients, which have included Maya Angelou, Billy Graham, Michael Jordan and Charles Kuralt. In 2007, the Polk County Board of Education honored Margaret with the Stewards of Education Award, recognizing her as a “truly staunch supporter of quality learning opportunities for young people in the Polk County Schools.” Margaret has demonstrated what we can do when we open our heart. To celebrate her life and to honor her memory, touch the life of a child with a kind act, embrace community. A memorial service will be held Friday, Aug. 19 at 11 a.m. in the Congregational Church on Melrose Avenue in Tryon.

The World of Mice

Mouse ossword

Solve the puzzle using the clues provided.


A mouse is a small rodent that can be found almost anywhere on the planet. There are approximately 40 different species of this mammal. The most common type of mouse in the United States is called a House Mouse, which is about six inches in length and appropriately named for its preferred living space--our homes! The common House Mouse can have as many as 150 babies a year. Another common type of mouse in America is the Deer Mouse. A Deer Mouse has a coat of fur that looks very similar to a deer’s. Mice are characterized by their long tails and two prominent front teeth, which grow continuously throughout a lifetime. Constant gnawing keeps the teeth ground down and manageable for the mouse. Mice eat 15 to 20 times a day and live mostly off of seeds, plants, fruits and vegetables, insects, and even meat or dairy products that they find discarded by humans. Mice have even been known to eat their own feces. For this reason, mice carry diseases that can be transmitted to people.

North and South Carolina had been thirsty for rain in recent months and on Saturday, the rains poured. The storm clouds, however, faded just in time for another thirst to be quenched. Just an hour before the Border Showcase Classic kicked off in Gaffney, S.C., the storm clouds parted and the sun peeked through, and for the fans that had long been thirsty for high school football, the cup ran over.

“It’s a scrimmage. We’re going to learn from it and move from there.” -- Coach Bruce Ollis

The Classic was started by Polk County coach Bruce Ollis seven years ago and has become one of the more high profile scrimmage jamborees in the Carolinas. The seventh annual event hosted some of the toughest competition in the two states.

The Wolverines kicked the night off against South Carolina 4A school Spartanburg. The Vikings jumped out early on the Wolverines. In the first possession of the first quarter, Viking quarterback Adrian Kollock ran in a touchdown in the first two

minutes. Four minutes later, Kollock hit wide receiver Ariand Woodruff for a second touchdown. After a three and out on their first drive, the Wolverines finally settled down. In their second possession, Polk quarterback Alec Philpott converted a third and 11 with his feet, scampering up the left sidelines before being knocked out of bounds after a 12-yard run. Jay Sutton pounded up the (Continued on page 11)

middle for a nine-yard run. A delay then pushed the Wolverines back. Then on fourth down, the Vikings came up with an interception. The Vikings added one more touchdown in the second quarter when Kollock handed the ball off to running back Deuntrelle Goudelock, who ran the ball into the endzone. The most exciting moment of the night for Polk came in their final possession. The Wolverines faced a fourth and 8 on the Viking side of the field. Ollis sent out the punt unit. Joel Booker awaited the snap and when it came, he

took off up the right side of the field for a 14-yard carry and a first down. When the buzzer sounded, however, the Vikings won the two-quarter scrimmage 21-0. “It’s a scrimmage,” Ollis said. “We’re going to learn from it and move from there.” The result from Saturday night’s contest was not a mandate on how his team will fare this season, Ollis said. “That doesn’t mean we don’t have a good football team,” he said. “We have a good team that can compete for a conference title this season.” Byrnes (S.C.) beat Asheville 21-7 in the next game. Gaffney (S.C.) won the late game 35-6 over T.C. Roberson.

The Dancer’s Extension in Saluda held two weeks of youth dance camps in August. The young dancers were taught lessons in ballet, jazz, contemporary and African dance. Each group created its own dance story, including costumes and stage sets. The pre-schoolers’ story was entitled, “The Fairy House,” and the elementary story was entitled “The Tale of Rainbow Lake.” The children completing the week of preschool camp were: • Madison Anderson • Zetta Anderson • Grey Bateman • Adelaide Gardner • Autumn Jones • Clara Monts • Eliza Then • Ariana Wood The children completing the week of elementary camp were: • Henry Gardner • Eva Gates • Tana Harris • Holly Obermiller • Abigail Orlando • Emma Orlando • Foster Plantamura • Maya Plantamura • Bret Snider • Ida Tart-Remington • Sophie Young In addition, Maya Plantamura, Ida Tart-Remington and Sophie Young acquired hours towards their candidacy in the National Honor Society of Dance Arts by their participation in dance camp at The Dancer’s Extension. – article submitted by Sonya Monts
