Temporary bridge opens on Hwy. 14

Tryon made the New York Times on Aug. 30. In an op-ed piece called “High Above the Hog,” Mark Essig of Asheville said, “And in response to a feral hog invasion just down the road from me in Tryon, N.C., a wildlife officer told a local newspaper, ‘We were having a lot of people trap these in Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama and transport them here and release them.’ “In other words, as some people are trying to eradicate wild hogs, others are doing their best to help them spread.” The quote referred to a July 22 Bulletin article about wild hogs on Hogback Mountain.

Here’s a list of upcoming meetings and events for area nonprofit community and governmental organizations:


Polk County Mobile Recycling Unit, Thursdays, 7 a.m. - noon, old Searcy Mill parking lot, Hwy. 108,Columbus. Saluda Center, Thursday (Continued on page 2)

A temporary bridge was opened on Monday, Aug. 29 while contractors replace the old bridge over the Pacolet River on Hwy. 14 just outside Landrum. The S.C. Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded the bid for $1.9 million. The bridge was old and needed replacing, according to DOT officials. Original estimates were for the new bridge to be completed at the end of September. (photo by Leah Justice)

What does TDDA do, anyway? TDDA reviews Streetscape, begins membership drive Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) will soon come to the end of another fiscal year, and its membership drive for the upcoming year has begun. “We are at an important juncture in Tryon’s Streetscape project,” said Crys Armbrust, TDDA president and tourism and business development coordinator for the Town of Tryon, “and we need the help of every citizen, business owner and non-profit to move the downtown rehab project forward successfully.” Newcomers (and perhaps some not-so-newcomers) may be unfamiliar with what the Tryon Downtown Development Association has already implemented in the downtown corridor. All improvements to date have been accomplished through private/ public capital fundraising, including the $98,000 Streetscape Master Plan developed in conjunction with the award-winning East Coast engineering firm of Milone & MacBroom. With the financial assistance of individual donors and other local and state funding agencies, TDDA’s major projects to date have included:

• Burying the overhead electrical lines on Trade Street • Consolidating utility lines on Pacolet Street • Installing street lamps on Trade, Pacolet and Depot streets • Locating decorative benches and refuse containers throughout the business district • Rehabilitating curb, gutter and sidewalks from School Street to Ola Mae Way • Commissioning a new Architectural Survey of the downtown district These projects collectively represent citizen investments in Tryon’s downtown and its future, not to mention constructive local applications of municipal funds at work, Armbrust said. Ongoing small-scale projects, which promote citizen and consumer presence and awareness in the downtown, include the annual Halloween and Christmas Strolls, the April Fools’ Parade and Outhouse Race, Trade Days, the farmers’ market and, more recently, the creation of the TDDA website, www.downtowntryon. org, containing information about the TDDA organization and its Streetscape Master Plan. TDDA is poised to move with capital fundraising activities to complete the Streetscape Master Plan, and Armbrust said the or(Continued on page 5)

yielded an impressive 3.2 million dollars in private/public investment in our downtown corridor,” Armbrust said. Among the line-items in that N.C. Rural Center grant were downtown historic signage for the Tryon Horse, the Tryon Toy-Makers and Missildine’s, and walking tour materials touting the historic structures and the numerous (inter) national figures who, across the years, associated themselves with Tryon. Armbrust said, “Teasing out these heritage connections serves to sophisticate the Tryon brand and promotes the town as a destination. Moreover, their implementation facilitates retail growth, nurtures

economic improvement, consolidates municipal infrastructure, all the while documenting cultural resources, which, taken together, advance local quality of life and consolidate local, regional and state tourism potentials. “This is what the TDDA, in close collaboration with the Town of Tryon, has done for our downtown corridor, using the generosity of time, talent and treasure of TDDA members.” If you are interested in helping TDDA continue its work, Armbrust urges you to become a member and make a tax-deductible donation in support of Tryon’s future. – article submitted by Crys Armbrust

ganization needs the help of every citizen to do so. Successful implementation of the proposed project, Armbrust said, will improve connectivity and provide safe, convenient and comfortable vehicular and pedestrian access to local businesses and parking throughout this southern entry portal into North Carolina, Western North Carolina’s Pacolet River (Scenic) Byway and beyond. In anticipation of beginning Streetscape III improvements, TDDA has revisited the initial Milone and MacBroom master plan

and updated several smaller design elements, with assistance from local architects Mark Byington, Dean Trakas and TDDA Design Chair John Walters. On the development side, TDDA’s recent focus on smaller, stand-alone projects has linked to the StreetScape Master Plan by capitalizing on Tryon’s rich cultural heritage. According to Armbrust, these elements build capacity while promoting local heritage tourism as economic development. “Collaterally, our recent completion, in cooperation with the Town of Tryon, of the N.C.

Tryon Gallery Trots draw growing crowds of art lovers Next Trot Oct. 8

North Carolina.” Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TP&S) once again welcomed a group of art lovers coming to see their latest members’ show. Since moving to downtown onto Maple Street, TP&S members said the gallery has seen a dramatic rise in visitors. A wide variety of styles and mediums are displayed in this first members’ show in the new space. Kathleen’s “Burnsville PotterClaudia Dunaway” and “Real and Faux-Teddy Bears by Linda

The Tryon Gallery Trots in downtown Tryon have blossomed, organizers said. With new businesses opening, businesses relocating more centrally to downtown and more merchants opening their doors for the evening, they said the Trot couldn’t have asked for a better kick off season. The Upstairs Artspace’s newest exhibits, “Curvature and Color,” “Carolina the Beautiful” and “Cassie Ryalls: New Work,” (Continued on page 7) drew a full house throughout the evening at the most recent Trot. The show includes paintings, photographs and figurative sculptures.  Skyuka Fine Art’s live charcoal portrait demonstration was a new addition to the Trot.

Nelson discussed his technique and answered questions from curious viewers, who also enjoyed the current exhibit, “Women of Western Portrait by Rich Nelson of his son, Lucas. jbtrees - page 10

man. Jesus was a carpenter. The Bible is filled with stories of farmers, shepherds, craftsmen, artisans, laborers and servants working. Of course, everyone’s work experience is different. It is rare to find people who have worked for most of their lives in a job that they loved. Most people have worked at a variety of jobs and for different organizations. And in these turbulent economic times, many people have lost jobs and are desperately looking for work, or for better work. Months after graduation many recent graduates are struggling to land their first jobs. Others are retired, some with a sense of satisfaction, others a sense of relief, some with feelings of anger and still others with a sense of

Labor Day signals a change in seasons. School has started and with it football season and many different kinds of activities. Even the weather has begun to change. Labor Day is also a good time to reflect on work. In our community and especially in these times, I think that’s important. According to Webster’s dictionary, work is a “physical or mental effort to overcome obstacles and achieve an objective or result.” Work takes up a huge part of our lives. Work is also a prominent theme in the Bible. Even God works. According to Genesis 1, God worked for six days creating the world before taking a day off. Paul was a tentmaker. Peter was a fisher-

than effort and activities. Barbara Brown Taylor has written that work, or vocation, is “the practice of living with purpose.” Purpose may or may not be connected to our livelihood. The poet Wallace Stevens worked for an insurance company and T. S. Eliot was a banker. Real purpose may be quite removed from employment. Finding purpose is not something we do as much as something we discover, often in strange and unexpected ways. You may be familiar with the story of Brother Lawrence, a 17thcentury Carmelite monk who spent most of his life working as a common laborer in the monastery kitchen. Over many years Brother Lawrence learned that common activities, no matter

regret. For many, retirement brings a sense of loss. According to the writer of Ecclesiastes, “There is nothing better for humans than to eat and drink, and find enjoyment in their work.” (Ecclesiastes 2:24). Eating and drinking may be easy enough, but finding joy in work is often a lot harder. According to Studs Turkel in his 1972 classic "Working," in the best sense, work is something we do "for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying." Turkel’s book then goes on to describe the challenges many people experience in finding work that is meaningful. There is more to work

Davis, Ryan to teach at TPS Margie Davis, a well-known local landscape oil painter, will offer a six-week session on beginning oil painting at the Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS) gallery and studio in Tryon. A member of the American Impressionist Society, Davis has many years’ experience in oil paintings and has attended many seminars across the country to perfect her talent. The painting class will meet on Wednesdays from 1 - 4 p.m. and will begin Sept. 7. Bill Ryan, a painter who lives in the Saluda area, will also teach

painting classes in the same location but on Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. - noon beginning in mid September. Ryan teaches all methods of painting, including watercolor, oil and acrylic. If you are interested in getting more information about the classes, obtaining a materials list or registering, contact Christine Mariotti, workshop and class coordinator for TPS. Mariotti’s number is 828-859-8392 and her email is cmariotti@windstream. net. – article submitted by Christine Mariotti

Lucas, Belcher featured in art exhibit at Saluda Inn’s Wine Cellar

Local artists Gail Lucas and Joe Belcher will show their work this Friday, Sept. 2, at 7 p.m. at Wine REMAX2A-LThe - page 90 Cellar at the Saluda Inn. Guests will have an opportunity to meet the artists and discuss their work. Live music will also be offered, featuring local musicians including Ellen Trinka, Mela and Jack and Buzz Deilharz. The artwork will also be on display Saturday, Sept. 3 from 7 – 10 p.m. Lucas has been painting since she took her first lesson at age 13. Her art teacher took her all over her hometown of Plymouth, N.C., to paint. Lucas paints with oil on canvas and prefers oil because of the way it moves and allows itself to be expressed on canvas. Lucas’ deep love for animals drives her brush. She also enjoys painting flowers but said she is truly moved by animals, especially their eyes. In her paintings, she works to capture the spirit in the eyes of each animal she paints, whether it is a horse, dog, cat, bird or hippo. Lucas lives in a house down a windy and hidden road in Saluda, surrounded by open spaces and big trees. She came to Saluda four days after her mother died.

A friend recruited her to Saluda. She said she felt at home in the surroundings and now finds it hard to leave. For Lucas, who is also a singer, Saluda offers peace and creative energy, which she said lends itself to her ability to transform into another world with her brush, paint and canvas. Local nature sculptor Belcher is inspired by the nature that surrounds him. After working in the real world for many years, Belcher said he has always found solace in the outdoors. Since retirement, whether working in his yard, walking his dog, Buddy, or hiking and paddling with his daughters, Joe said he is most at home under a blue sky. The many natural objects Belcher finds on his outside adventures influence his creative endeavors. These indigenous materials, such as rocks and driftwood, and the physical forms they take with wind, water, fire and earth are the muse for his creativity. Like the natural world, Belcher’s designs are always evolving. The Wine Cellar at the Saluda Inn is located at 229 Greenville Street in Saluda.

You can’t have a board game without a game board. And you can’t transform a black box theater into a game board without the expertise and creativity of an artistic mind. Thankfully, Tryon Little Theater (TLT) officials say, the area boasts a slew of artists, all willing to give up their time and talent to transform the ordinary and transcend all expectations. TLT’s season opener, “Clue: the Musical,” is based on the Parker Brothers board game, Clue. Think colorful and complex with undercurrents of intrigue. Mix with great music, zany antics and a different ending each night and you’ve got “Clue.” Artists transforming the workshop include Diana Gurri, Bob Neely, Aviva Kahn, Richard Sharkey, Gretchen Verbonic, Lynn and Anna Costine, Maggie Riedy and Christine Mariotti, with help from family members, cast, crew and board members. The show will run for two weekends at the TLT Workshop on S. Trade St. in Tryon, Sept. 22 - 25 and Sept. 29 – Oct. 2. The box office opens at the Workshop Thursday, Sept. 8.
