St. John the Baptist marks 100 years Italian feast set for Sept. 10 as part of year’s celebration by Barbara Childs

St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, located on Laurel Ave. in Tryon, celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. The seeds that grew into St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Tryon were planted in the 1800s, before television, radio, talking movies and World Wars I and II, and long before cell phones and computers. The local Catholic population at the time consisted of six individuals. There were fewer Catholics in the Carolinas than in any other populated region in the country. In 1850, Catholics in both the Carolinas, which made up the Charleston Diocese, numbered less than 5,000, served by a total of six priests. The original church site was dedicated on Oct. 22, 1911. The cornerstone was sealed into the bell tower and is the only known piece of the frame structure that remains today. (Continued on page 4)

Renovations under way on new county mental health building by Leah Justice

After spending almost 40 years in the former hospital building, Polk County is on target to vacate the aged Jervey-Palmer building by the end of October as renovations to a new mental health services facility have begun. The county agreed by a 3-2 vote to

purchase the mental health building from Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry in June for $110,583. Commissioners Ted Owens and Tom Pack voted against the purchase. The county approved a 10-year

agreement with Family Preservation Services to provide mental health services in the building and to provide inside maintenance, including cleaning services. Polk County will pay utilities and outside maintenance. Family Preservation Services is currently renovating the former house, located at 94 White Drive in Columbus, to meet its needs. Renovations are expected to cost Family Preservation approximately $40,000. Family Preservation has provided Polk County with mental health and substance abuse services, among other counseling services, for the past five years, using offices in the Jervey Palmer building. The Jervey-Palmer building (former St. Luke’s Hospital) is located off Carolina Drive in Tryon. Renovations began to the White Drive house last Monday, Aug. 22. Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson said the fireplace has already been removed and contractors are creating a new entrance on the left side of the building, which will be equipped with a handicapped-accessible ramp. Whitson said the remodeling is scheduled to be complete by the end of September. Whitson said he has asked that Family Preservation be moved into the new building no later than the end of October. The county has worked for the past few years to vacate the Jervey-Palmer building, which is aged and costly to maintain. Several county departments were once housed in the Jervey-Palmer building, including the Meeting Place Senior Center, veteran’s services, the department of social services (DSS) and mental

health services. Polk County purchased the former Carolina Classical School building off Skyuka Road near Columbus a few years ago and moved the Meeting Place Senior Center and its veteran’s affairs office there. The county also added a new county service, an adult day care, also located on the former Carolina Classical School property. Construction is currently under way on a new human services/DSS building off Wolverine Trail in Mill Spring, on property that also houses the county’s recreation park and middle school. Plans are for DSS to move out of the JerveyPalmer building into the new offices by the end of October. Whitson said once the building is vacated, there will mostly likely be a transitional period, during which files will be moved to other locations from the Jervey-Palmer building. Once that is complete, the county will need to dispose of the property. Commissioners have not yet discussed what their plans are for the building, such as placing

it on the market. The building was constructed in 1929 and has been used as county offices since

the early 1970s when St. Luke’s Hospital opened its new building in Columbus in 1972.

St. John the Baptist to hold Italian Feast Sept. 10 For many people, an Italian feast conjures up thoughts of family fun, music, lots of people enjoying authentic Italian foods like pizza, sausage and onions, pasta, bread, wine and, of course, gelato. These events are common in the north. It’s an event for the whole family. St. John the Baptist Catholic Church will hold an Italian Feast in Tryon on Saturday, Sept. 10 from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. This year is the 100th anniversary of this parish in Tryon. The feast is part of the church’s plans to mark this centennial event. Admission is free. Parking is blocks away at the Episcopal and Congregational churches. Trolley service is provided and located at 180 Laurel Ave., Tryon, where the feast will take place. St. John’s was first built as a retreat for monks from Belmont Abbey near Charlotte. The church has almost completed its renovation. Tours of the church, including a church history, will be given at the event,

complete with a Schola Choir singing ancient Gregorian chants. The agenda for the event includes Italian dishes such as wood-fired pizza, sausage with peppers and onions, pasta and marinara, eggplant lasagna, Italian sodas, gelato, pizza fritte (fried pizza dough, sweetened with cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar), other homemade dessert delicacies, beer and wine. There will be places to sit and eat next to the gardens and new granite paved plazas. Italian music will fill the air, along with the smells of savory foods. Adjacent parking lot areas will have karaoke, music, dancing and children’s entertainment, including fishing for prizes and storytelling, face painting and games, balloons and more. The festival mascot is Topo Gigio, an Italian mouse. Mouse toys will be hidden here and there around the grounds for anyone to find. Those who do find a Topo Gigio

will win prizes for both adults and children. To kick off the feast, the evening before at sunset, a traditional Catholic procession will take place on the main streets of Tryon. It will include altar boys carrying incense and torches, banners and a traditional decorated donkey cart bearing a statue of St. John the Baptist, the church’s patron saint. Several hundred parishioners and clergy will be holding candles and chanting reverently. The purpose is to bring awareness to the church and provide an opportunity for those who may have never seen a Catholic procession. Everyone is invited to join the procession at the end and then continue on to the church for music and refreshments. For more information, call the church at 828-859-9574 or call Janet Sciacca at 864457-6530. Also visit the church’s website at www.stjohntryon.com. – article submitted by Janet Sciacca

• St. John’s (continued from page 1)

St. John’s was the first church built in a new ecclesiastical jurisdiction west of Charlotte. Belmont Abbey administered to the eight-county area. This was not a diocese but functioned as one under Belmont Abbey, which was Benedictine in its rule and order of priests. The abbott, Leo Haid, O.S.B. also served as bishop. St. John’s was under the care of the abbey’s Benedictine fathers from 1911 to 1944. St. John’s remained a mission parish until it was brought into the Raleigh Diocese. The abbey priests would come to Tryon on Saturday and catch the noon train back to the abbey. There was no parking lot. The church had stained glass windows, but there was no rectory in the plans at that time. An abbey newsletter stated that Tryon is one of the most delightful places to live, as nature favored it with mild temperatures and a climate ideal for convalescence and healthy living. Many

semi-retired and retired people settled here. The basic cost for the brown Gothic-style church was $2,225. The building measured 28 feet across and the front was about 49 feet long; it was built on a stone foundation. The basement housed a coal furnace and the bell-tower rose directly above the entrance of the church. This was the only Catholic church in the 234 square miles of Polk County. Abbot Bishop Haid celebrated Mass and later that day there was a banquet held at Oak Hall Hotel (where Oak Hall condominiums stand now). Growth was meager in those years at St. John’s and the parish only grew to 12 people. Rectory built Then in 1923, when Father James Manley was pastor, a rectory was built. Father Manley was enthusiastic about the building of the rectory and refurbishing the church grounds. There was no sidewalk or cement walk approaching the church and (Continued on page 6)

Father Manley provided Obits - page 66 clearwtrthe - page 6 materials, buying lumber from whomever offered it at the best price. He purchased lumber for $30 per thousand board feet and paid $100 for the best oak flooring. The rectory was a two-story wooden building 25x36 feet with a full basement. It was located behind the church where the parking lot is today. On the first floor was a vestibule, hall, living room, dining room, dining alcove, sun parlor and kitchen. On the second floor were three bedrooms, a sleeping porch, and a bathroom. The total cost was

$3,700. Another $300 was used for ground furnishings and improvements. The heating system from St. Lawrence Church in Asheville cost $25. The rectory was occupied principally by a parish family or a caretaker from 1924-1944; in 1944 Father Vincent Mahoney became pastor. The Benedictines always resided at the abbey, but Father Mahoney lived at the rectory at St. John’s. Father Florian Checkhart, O.S.B. had the longest pastorate and frequently spent his weekends here at a guest’s home. He was taken to a movie on Saturday nights at the local theater; the film on Saturday nights was always a western. The old rectory was occupied by St. John’s pastors from 1944-1960. Father Joseph Kerin became pastor in 1960 and also continued his duties in Asheville as principal of the Asheville Catholic High School. He also became chancellor of the Charlotte Diocese.

Growth of church St. John’s experienced slow growth in its early years. Many Sundays saw about six worshippers at Mass. Father Manley said sometimes he had a crowd (1214), including those who come from Spartanburg as they are going to the mountains for the day. (Continued on page 8)

A 1914 annual report noted that the offertory collections totaled to $93.30 for that year. Special C - filler 8/25-8/29 collections also produced another $9.40.

A small monthly income was then derived TDBHOURS - page 28 the rectory. from renting In the 1960s and 1970s the church membership began to rise as retirees moved into the area from the northern states. During the short pastorate of Msgr. John F. Roueche, the number climbed to 80; in 1975, when he left, the number was 130. Tryon remained in the Raleigh Diocese from 1944 until it was assigned in the newly established diocese of Charlotte in 1972. The first diocese here was that of Baltimore from 1789-1820; then came the Charleston Diocese from 1820-1868. Then followed the Vicarate Apostolic of North Carolina from 1868-1910. Then followed the Belmont Abbey jurisdiction from 1910-1944. Fire destroys original church The original building of St. John’s lasted about 48 years. On the early afternoon of June 25, 1959, the entire interior of the church collapsed in flames.

The fire began a little after 11 a.m. At 11:30 a.m., Father Francis McCourt, pastor, was talking on the rectory telephone when he glanced out the window and saw smoke pouring through the roof of the church. The week before a fundraising effort for a new roof had yielded $2,000. Several neighbors saw the smoke and turned on the fire alarm. Finding the phone lines jammed and not being able to get through to the fire department, Father McCourt grabbed a fire extinguisher and ran to the church. Mr. H.S. Viner, who lived nearby, hooked up a garden hose. The fire department finally arrived and brought the blaze under control, preventing it from spreading to the rectory only a few feet away. The result of recent rains and dampness of the area helped contain the fire. The new fire resistant roof kept the flames contained to the inside, as the exterior remained intact. The building was a total loss, and it came just one day after the great feast of St. John the Baptist, patron saint of the church. Father McCourt, with the help of a few neighbors, managed to salvage a few items from the fiery (Continued on page 10)

rubble, including sacred vessels and vestments. Only $12,000 of the loss was covered by insurance. It was estimated that $35,000 $50,000 was needed to rebuild. The rectory was untouched by the fire, but what remained inside the church were mostly blackened pews and twisted shingles and all the smashed boards of the collapsed roof. The organ, a gift from Abbott Haid, was demolished. From its tower over the entrance, the bell tore loose and crashed onto the front steps. Then it mysteriously disappeared and no one to this day knows what happened to it. The fire was stated to be of undetermined origin. But one report cited that it was due to faulty wiring in the organ loft. After the fire The rectory was used for Sunday Mass after the fire, and two Protestant churches nearby also offered the use of their facilities. This is how the rectory served its parishioners for the next three years. An altar was erected in the sun porch. The congregation gathered in the living room and dining room; when summer brought more visitors, the hall and vestibule were also filled for Mass.

Rebuilding the church From the ashes of the fire came many friendly community gestures. Offers of money, materials and personal help flowed in from local churches, organizations and individuals throughout Tryon. Ladies at the Holy Cross Episcopal Church spent hours sewing draperies for the rectory. Burt Hopkins, of Holy Cross, made good use of his workshop at home to build an altar for the rectory for offering Mass. Fundraising efforts began immediately, with the Ladies Altar Society, parishioners, friends and a contribution of $10,000 from the Catholic Extension Society all helping in the construction of the new church. The Ladies Altar Society also donated $250 for a new altar. Plans for the new building were drawn up by Ernst A. Benkert, for-

merly of Chicago. He also designed the Tryon Fine Arts Center. One of the many innovations that Mr. Benkert introduced was the lighting. Natural lighting was produced on the altar by an array of glass panels installed in the roof directly overhead. Attached to the wall near the stairs to the choir loft is a plaque in memory of his granddaughter, Ann Kyle Benkert, who died in infancy, on January 4, 1962, when the new church was under construction. General contractor for the new church was Charles A. Lankford. Local labor and local building materials were used to the maximum extent possible throughout the construction. There was a groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 24, 1961. The baptismal font, altar, altar railing, pews and all the cabinets in the sacristy were designed by Mr. Benkert and crafted by Leonard Porter. Retaining walls were laid by R.M.Searcy, using stones gathered from the Pacolet River. Vollmer Nurseries did the landscaping. Total cost for the new church was $60,000. The debt was retired in 1965. New rectory purchased The old rectory soon fell into disrepair. It never recovered from the extraordinary use it received in the three years use for Mass when it served as a parish church. It was taken down in 1967 when the present rectory was purchased by Msgr. Peter McNerney, who became the first pastor to reside in the new rectory. He had previously lived in the parish hall for a few months as the old rectory had become uninhabitable. Dedication of the new church was on Aug. 4, 1962. Mass was celebrated by Bishop Vincent Waters of Raleigh. Later a communion supper became the first planned event held in the parish hall. Mrs. John H. Duffy was the hostess. Father Kerin was a host to the other visitors who received a detailed look at the new church during an open house on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 5. (Continued on page 11)

• St. John’s (continued from page 10)

A new inscription was added later to the 1911 cornerstone with the name of the church and the initials O.P.M.(Omnia per Mariam) - All through Mary - the motto of Bishop Waters. There was some fear that the stone might crack at that time. Church bells were expensive but a single bell was installed as a 75th anniversary gift and dedicated on Sunday, June 15, 1962. Sealed inside the cornerstone are copies of the Tryon Daily Bulletin for Sept. 22 and 28, 1961, which contain photos and stories on the groundbreaking. Also there are portions of the Charlotte Observer and Philadelphia Catholic, both for Aug. 4, 1961, along with a medal of St. Benedict. Renewed growth St. John’s became an active parish. The oldest organization is the Ladies Altar Guild. By 1946 membership grew to 18 - which was a substantial number for a parish that drew fewer for Sunday Mass. The guild of ladies was recognized upon the completion of the new church in 1962 with Mrs. Robert Shafer as its president. Mrs. Duffy was vice-president, Mrs. Lester Huton was secretary, and Mrs. Helen Andrews was treasurer. In addition to maintaining the altar, providing flowers, conducting frequent coffee hours after Sunday Mass and supervising social activities as well as opening a telephone communication chain, the guild sponsored and held an annual bazaar. Held in late October, the bazaar featured a variety of handcrafted items made by the guild members. This event attracted people throughout the Tryon area and Landrum and Columbus and provided an important source of revenue for the church needs. A men’s club was organized in 1984. John O’Conner was elected president, Joseph Hughes was secretary and John Moran was the program chairman. The club was dissolved in 1985. A parish council was recognized and expanded in 1982. With Father Morse and Father Gavigan,

the council brought about a reconditioning of the church grounds, including major improvements to the parking area (the upper lot was formerly unpaved and without steps or a railing). New and brighter light for the church interior was installed, a new rood, upgrading of kitchen facilities in the parish hall, and renovations in the rectory were all addressed. A fourfold increase in offertory contributions made all these improvements possible. Community outreach programs to serve the needy included the establishment of a food bank and the distribution of clothing. Parish ministry was extended to those who were home bound and shut-ins, and pastoral visits to all parishioners were 90 percent complete. The pastors of St. John’s have always helped advance ecumenism in part through membership in the Tryon Ministerial Association. One result of these efforts in 1985 was the appearance of Father Richard Murphy, O.P., a Biblical scholar and one of the translators of the New American Bible. Father Murphy presented the parish with a well-received series of lectures at the Tryon Presbyterian Church. Religious study programs have been strengthened at St. John’s under the leadership of Bruce Haslett, education chairman of the council, working with Father Morse and Father Gavigan. The programs enrolled some 25 young people. For adults, the parish offered a Catholic inquiry class and a class in Bible study. In the liturgical ministry of St. John’s the parish enjoyed the support of a senior choir, three organists, seven altar servers, 11 Eucharistic ministers, 18 readers and 19 ushers. Nearly every member of the parish registered for service of some kind, liturgical or others. As of 1986, the parish registry listed more than 180 households, representing more than 300 individuals plus 35 floating members. The outlook for a continued increase at this time was favorable as St. John’s became a growing parish and there was a rapid expansion of the Universal Catholic Church in the Carolinas.

The regular meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the community center, located at 207 Big Level Road. The meeting has been changed to Tuesday because of the Labor Day holiday.

rural operating assistance program • Recognizing the finance officer for a certificate of excellence • Fire district insurance rating maps • A recycling report for fiscal year 2011 • Possible abandonment of a portion of Hugh Champion Road • The possibility of adding Winter Dr., Deerfield Dr. and Lighthouse Dr. in the Silver Creek Community to the state maintenance system • A human service building change order • The possibility of declaring a 2006 transportation van as surplus • Volunteer board appointments to the appearance commission, the Columbus Fire Tax Commission and the transportation advisory board The board will also hear citizen comments.

Spartanburg County issues alert on car break-in crime 112 vehicle breakins since Aug. 15 by Leah Justice

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office has issued a crime alert regarding a rash of vehicle break-ins throughout the county since Aug. 15, 2011. One car break-in was reported between Aug. 30 and Aug. 31 on Howard's antiques - Page 12 Mountain View Road in Landrum. The victim reported that an unknown subject came onto his property and entered his truck and took a silver chain with a silver dollar charm, approximately $100 in coins and keys, according to sheriff’s office reports. Other car break-ins have occurred throughout Spartanburg

County, with the sheriff’s office urging residents to keep vehicles locked at all times. Of the 61 reported cases involving 112 vehicles, 81 vehicles had been left unlocked, according to the sheriff’s office. The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office advised residents always to lock their vehicle no matter where it is parked, never leave items of value inside vehicles, report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement immediately and park vehicles in an area that is well lighted during hour of darkness. Anyone with any information about the recent series of car breakins is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1.888.CRIME.SC.

“PAC Buffalo,” by Philip Dusenbury, will be one of the items in the silent auction at the Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) benefit Friday, Sept. 9 and Saturday, Sept. 10. (photo submitted)

Dusenbury buffalo to be auctioned at PAC Horse Show It isn’t often that an original Dusenbury sculpture is made available at auction. On Friday and Saturday, Sept. 9 - 10, at the Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) benefit September Spectacular Horse Show at Harmon Field, the “PAC Buffalo” created by world class local artist Philip Dusenbury will headline the silent auction. Held in the Harmon Field Cabin from 1 p.m. on Friday until 7 p.m. Saturday, the silent auction will feature such items as spa treatments, equine chiropractic services, glorious wine baskets, jewelery, art and much more. The “PAC Buffalo,” which PAC had commissioned as a symbol of how natural resources can diminish in a short period of time, will be offered with a minimum bid of $2,500. The artist, whose work is owned and exhibited throughout the United States (exercise guru Richard

Simmons is a collector), is well known for developing his unique sculptural style and technique. “We hope that someone special will acquire the ‘PAC Buffalo,’” says PAC Executive Director Sally Walker. “It is both a beautiful work of art and a reminder of how important it is to value our natural resources.” The September Spectacular Horse Show will be held at Harmon Field Friday through Sunday. PAC will host a Saturday evening derby dinner in conjunction with the Vic Bailey Subaru Hunter Derby event. Tickets for the dinner may be purchased ahead of time at PAC, or at the horse show office. Other horse show sponsors include the Gold Exchange in Lynn, and Little Mountain Farm Supply. For further information, contact PAC at 828-859-5060. – article submitted by Sally Walker

Leothus Nathaniel ‘Pilly’ Gray

Leothus Nathaniel “Pilly” Gray, age 61, died Monday, Aug. 29, 2011 at the VA Medical Center in Asheville, N.C. He was the son of the late Dora Jane Ann Gray and Roscoe Miller. Leothus was born July 31, 1950 in Polk County. “Pilly,” as he was lovingly called by his family and friends, attended and graduated from Carver High School in Spindale, N.C. After graduating, he then enlisted in the U.S. Army and served four years in Germany. Leothus was a longtime member of Wheat Creek Baptist Church, where he dedicated his life as a Christian and served as a member of the board. He later became a standing member of Moores Grove Baptist Church, where he proudly served until his illness. He was a very outspoken, outgoing man who dedicated his life to Christ, his family and friends. He was employed for many years at Stonecutter Mills, Woodland Mills and later at Mohawk Industries in Landrum. Leothus served on various committees throughout his life,

Irene damages estimated at more than $70M in N.C. Damages from Hurricane Irene likely will top $70 million in North Carolina, based on preliminary damage estimates announced by Governor Bev Perdue’s office. The governor surveyed the damage on Tuesday along with N.C. Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. It was Gov. Perdue’s third day spent assessing emergency response and visiting with local officials in Eastern North Carolina, which suffered extensive flooding after receiving more than 12 inches of rain in some areas. “Thousands of families and business owners have suffered because of this storm,” said Perdue. “They are resilient. They are strong. They are determined to rebuild, and we will do everything possible to help.” So far Gov. Perdue has requested a federal disaster declaration for individual assistance for nine counties: Beaufort, Cateret, Craven, Dare, Hyde, Pamlico, Tyrrell, Halifax and Lenior. The declaration helps residents and businesses in those counties pay for uninsured damages caused by Hurricane Irene. The declaration allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide lowinterest loans or grants to pay for property repairs and medical costs. Secondary residences are not eligible for the federal assistance. Gov. Perdue also has requested that 20 counties be added to the state’s federal

disaster declaration request for public assistance, which would help local governments cover the expenses associated with the storm response. The 20 counties included in the request for public assistance are: Beaufort, Brunswick, Cateret, Chowan, Columbus, Craven, Dare, Duplin, Edgecombe, Halifax, Hyde, Jones, Lenoir, Martin, Nash, Onslow, Pamlico, Pender, Tyrrell and Wilson. According to the governor’s office, seven North Carolinians died as a result of Hurricane Irene, and swift water teams conducted more than 100 rescue operations. As of Wednesday, 13 shelters were still open in the state, housing nearly 600 people. More than 135,000 homes and businesses remained without power, down from a high of 660,000 outages following the storm. The governor’s office reported that nearly 2,000 transportation crews were working to reopen blocked roads and bridges, and the N.C. Department of Transportation has been asked to devise a short-term solution to get traffic flowing in the next few weeks on N.C. 12, which was breached by a tidal surge. The N.C. Disaster Relief Fund, operated in partnership with the United Way of North Carolina, is accepting donations to provide financial assistance for hurricane survivors. Visit www.ncdisasterrelief.org for more information. Evacuation orders remain in effect for Hatteras Island. However, most of the state’s other coastal communities said they

AAA estimated about 31.5 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more this weekend, a 2.4 percent drop from last year’s total. However, AAA estimated about 27.3 million people will travel by car, an increase of about 0.5 percent. Going into the weekend, the average cost of a gallon of gas in North Carolina was $3.57, which was down from $3.70 a month ago, but still well above the statewide average of about $2.56 a year ago. – sources: www.bizjournals.com/charlotte, 8/24/11; www.northcarolinagasprices. com

gas tax 3.1 cents per gallon from 31.9 cents last year. The largest rate increase this year was six cents per gallon in Oregon. Nebraska was the only state to lower its gas tax, dropping it 0.8 cents this year to 26.3 cents per gallon. The differences in state tax rates do not fully account for disparities at the pump. Although North Carolina’s gas tax is 27.5 cents per gallon higher than Georgia’s rate, average pump prices in Georgia were only five cents less than in North Carolina, based on a recent AAA survey. Georgia continues to have the lowest gas tax rate in the nation after leaving it unchanged this year at 7.5 cents per gallon. South Carolina also left its rate unchanged this year and it continues to have one of the lower rates in the nation at 16 cents per gallon. – source: www.bizjournals. com/charlotte, published 8/31/11

*** The Gates Four community said it has acquired enough signatures from residents to block a planned annexation by Fayetteville that it’s been fighting for years. Gates Four joins Biltmore Lakes as one of the communities taking advantage of a new North Carolina law that allows communities to block annexations if at least 60 percent of residents in the proposed annexation area sign a petition. The Gates Four Homeowners Association said it has acquired signatures from about 80 percent of property owners. Even though it met the requirement under the state law, the county board of elections is continuing to accept signatures through November 21. The board will then review, certify and report the results to Fayetteville. The city approved in 2008 an ordinance to involuntarily annex Gates Four, a community of about 650 homes, an 18-hole golf course and a clubhouse in (Continued on page 21)

Supreme Court recently denied an appeal from the homeowners association. The association had appealed a decision by the N.C. Court of Appeals that upheld Fayetteville’s annexation ordinance. Mike Molin, secretary of the Gates Four Homeowners Association, said he expects the community will get more signatures before the Nov. 21 deadline, and he hopes an even higher percentage will send a message to Fayetteville that it should not pursue the annexation again. Under the new state, approved last year, a city must wait at least three years after a successful petition before it can pursue the annexation again. – source: www.fayobserver.com, 9/1/11

*** The town of Cornelius, N.C., is turning to iPads to help reduce the quantity of paper it uses for town meetings. Town commissioners agreed to start using iPads to replace meeting agenda packets, which often run about 200 pages long. The town of about 25,000 residents bought 16 iPads (16GB Wi-Fi) at a cost of $500 per unit. By eliminating the need to print the large agenda packets, the town expects to pay for the investment in about 1.5 years. Town manager Anthony Roberts said the town was printing about 4,000 pages for each meeting with 20 agenda packets of about 200 pages each. He said the town also is saving the time of putting the packets together, which included about eight hours each in administrative time and additional time for the police department to deliver the packets to commissioners. – source: www.nytimes. com, 7/22/11

Are you 100% sure if you died Sssshhh! Clues for TLT’s ‘Clue: the Musical’? 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.”

Mr. Green. See that shifty look he’s giving you? That hint of a sneer? He’s a con artist, no doubt about it. He says he’s an entrepreneur. I’ve been told he’s a closet percussionist, but who knows what he likes to hit – and does he use a wrench or candlestick? He’s a former business partner of Mr. Boddy, and rumor has it he’s been ‘affiliated’ with Miss Scarlet if you know what I mean… I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him, but you need to make up your own mind. Go see “Clue: the Musical” playing at the Tryon Little Theater Workshop, Sept. 22 - 25 and Sept. 29 – Oct. 2. The box office opens Sept. 8.

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:

“Low Income – No Documents Tax Returns.” • Claims for the expired Economic Recovery Credit Program or Recovery Rebate Credit. • Advice on claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit based on exaggerated reports of self-employment income. In some cases, non-existent Social Security refunds or rebates have been the bait used by the con artists. In other situations, taxpayers deserve the tax credits they are promised but the preparer uses fictitious or inflated information on the return, which results in a fraudulent return. Flyers and advertisements for free money from the IRS, suggesting that the taxpayer can file with little or no documentation, have been appearing in community churches around the country. Promoters are targeting church congregations, exploiting their good intentions and credibility. These schemes also often spread by word of mouth among unsuspecting and wellintentioned people telling their friends and relatives. Promoters of these scams often prey upon low-income individuals and the elderly. They build false hopes and charge people good money for bad advice, the IRS said. In the end, the victims discover their claims are rejected or the refund barely exceeds what they paid the promoter. Meanwhile, their money and the promoters are long gone. Unsuspecting individuals are most likely to get caught up in scams and the IRS warns all taxpayers, and those that help others prepare returns, to remain vigilant. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Anyone with questions about a tax credit or program should visit www.IRS.gov, call the IRS toll-free number at 800829-1040 or visit a local IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center.

Polk defenders (l-r) Jacob Painter, Caleb Wilson and Damion Cantrell will have their hands full against Taylor Ledbetter and the Hilltoppers of R-S Central tonight, Sept. 2, at home. (photo by Daniel Hecht)

Wolverines take on rivals R-S Central tonight by Daniel Hecht

With an unblemished 2-0 record and a powerhouse offense that has put 38 points on the scoreboard in each of their first two games, Polk County returns home this evening, Sept. 2, to the friendly confines of the Little Big House. Tonight, the Wolverines square off against the Hilltoppers of R-S Central High School, who come into the game against Polk with a record of 1-1. The annual gridiron grudge match, now in its ninth consecutive year, has emerged into an

intense rivalry. Even though the Wolverines hold a decisive edge in the series, coming out on top in seven of the eight meetings, Polk head coach Bruce Ollis is careful to caution against overconfidence. “Though we hold a decided advantage in the series, there have been a number of very close games over the years,” said Ollis. “We expect the Hilltoppers to come to Columbus and give great effort and be very prepared. Coach Cheek will have them ready to play.” The Hilltoppers offense will

be led by 6’3”, 210 pound senior quarterback Taylor Ledbetter, an extremely accurate passer who throws the deep ball very well, and 5’10”, 225 pound senior fullback Cameron Green, who is a threat on the ground as well as one of the team’s leading receivers. Other offensive standouts that will test the Wolverine defense include juniors Devante Austin and Dustin Atchley, who are expected to play at both wingback and tailback. The Wolverines offense will be led by sophomore Reece

Schlabach, who will start again at quarterback as first team QB Alec Philpott continues to nurse a separated shoulder. Polk County’s ability to put points on the scoreboard will be tested tonight by a very athletic Hilltoppers secondary, led by defensive backs Sharod Hines, Jahri Miller and Johnny Hunt, who figure to match up well against the speedy trio of Cary Littlejohn, Tyler Ridings and Joel Booker. The action kicks off at 7:30 this evening at Polk County High School.

Landrum eighth-grader ties national bench pressing record John David Edwards (J.D.) of Landrum shows off the trophy he won in the Iron Boy Powerlifting Federation. J.D., who is in the eighth grade this year, benched 140 pounds, which tied the national record set in 2004 in the 12-13-year-old age group for the 132 pounds weight class. J.D. just started lifting weights this past December and could barely lift 70 pounds and as of today can bench 150 pounds. His goal is to be benching 200 pounds by the time he reaches the ninth grade next year. He is the son of David and Pallas Edwards of Landrum.His grandparents are Mike and Peggy McCallister of Columbus and Danny and Myrna Edwards of Tryon. (photo submitted by David Edwards)

Landrum meets Chesnee tonight in first home game by Joey Millwood

The Landrum football team will play its home opener tonight., Sept. 2. The Cardinals are coming off a big road win against Traveler’s Rest last week and are hosting a Chesnee team that lost to Chase (N.C.). The Cardinals won last week despite four first half turnovers, and that’s something that head coach Russell Mahaffey has been working on this week. That’s a focus for the Cardinals, who are looking to start the season 2-0. “We have to play mistake-free football and cut out the turnovers,” Mahaffey said. “We have to play until the whistle blows.” The Cardinals were led by dual threat quarterback Brandon Cannon on offense. Cannon ran for three touchdowns and threw a touchdown to wide receiver Pey-

ton McCarter. T.J. Fincher, a Polk County transfer, led the team on defense with double-digit tackles. The Eagles lost to Chase on Friday night. Chase had four interceptions en route to a 35-14 win. The Eagles run a spread offense and are led by sophomore quarterback Chase Turner. On defense they play a 3-4 set with four deep. That might benefit Cardinal quarterback Cannon, who amassed 161 yards on the ground to go along with 192 yards through the air. The Cardinals and Eagles will kick off at 7:30 p.m.

Landrum's quarterback, senior Brandon Cannon, hands off the ball to senior running back Cole McDowell. (file photo)

Dyer named employee of the quarter at St. Luke’s Amanda Dyer, phlebotomist for St. Luke’s Hospital Laboratory, is personable, kind, loving and caring. Dyer never imagined that doing the right thing would land her as employee of the second quarter for 2011 at St. Luke’s Hospital. Dyer has worked at St. Luke’s Hospital for three and a half years. She enjoys her job, the patients, her co-workers and has a definite love for St. Luke’s Hospital. “I wish everyone could feel the sense of loyalty and family we have here at St. Luke’s,” said Dyer. “It’s a wonderful feeling.” “I have seen on a number of occasions where Amanda makes sure to get extra blood when drawing labs because she had a feeling the doctor would order more lab work,” said Jody Flynn, lab manager. “Instead of having to go back and re-stick the patient, she already had the blood necessary for the additional labs! Amanda also has a wonderful bedside manner with patients – she fully explains the process and is so kind and caring. She is also dependable and gets along well with all of her co-workers. She is such a gem!” Co-Worker, Shelly Criswell agreed, “Amanda stayed at work when she had a loss in her family. Our department had several employees that were out for training and Amanda did

That is dedication to this hospital, the lab and her co-workers.” When not working, Dyer enjoys spending time with her family. She lives in Landrum with her husband, Kenneth, and two children, Zachary and Madison. Dyer is also the choir director at Silver Creek Baptist Church. As employee of the quarter, Dyer received a monetary award and designated parking space at the hospital. By making sure residents of our community receive the services they need, St. Luke’s Hospital continues to provide care, close to home. - article submitted by Jennifer Wilson

Kiwanis awards Terrific Kid Last May, Polk Central School fourth grader, Makayla Staley (center) was honored as the Terrific Kid for the month by her teacher, Ms. Andrea Walter (left). Makayla’s father, Billy Staley (right), happened to be volunteering in Ms. Walter’s classroom that day, so he joined in the celebration. During the past school year, Mr. Staley volunteered in four different classrooms for four hours each week, helping with math and reading. Terrific Kids is a Kiwanis program to honor students who display responsible citizenship and good work habits in elementary classrooms. Tryon Kiwanis Club members Ed Komorous, Bob Weiner and Rosemary Pleune visit Polk Central and Sunnyview elementary schools each month to present certificates and pencils to those students chosen by their teachers as Terrific Kid for the month.

Downsizing for dollars Selling your stuff is one way you can downsize and pad your pocketbook at the same time. If you’re willing, have the time and access to the Internet, online selling at sites like Craigslist and eBay is the best way to make top dollar. Craigslist.org is a huge classified ad site that lets you sell your stuff for free. And eBay.com lets you conduct your own online auction for a small listing fee, and if it sells, nine percent of the sale price, up to $100. Or, if you don’t want to do the selling yourself you can get help from an eBay trading assistant who will do everything for you. They typi-

DAJU-028057 Donate it If you itemize on your tax returns, donating your belongings is another way to downsize and get a tax deduction. Goodwill (goodwill.org, 800741-0186) and the Salvation Army (satruck.org, 800-7287825) are two big charitable organizations that will come to your house and pick up your donations. If your deduction exceeds $500, you’ll need to file Form 8283, “Noncash Charitable Contributions.” You’ll also need a receipt from the organization for every batch of items you donate. And be sure you keep an itemized list of donated items. See IRS Publication 526 (www.irs.gov/ pub/irs-pdf/p526.pdf) for more information. DAJU-028057

Dear Overwhelmed, The process of weeding through a house full of stuff and parting with old possessions can be difficult and overwhelming for many seniors. Most people in your situation start the downsizing process by giving their unused possessions to their kids or grandkids, which you can do up to $13,000 per person per year before you’re required to file a federal gift tax return, using IRS Form 709. Beyond that, here are a few extra tips and services that may help you.
