LUMC holds 9/11 services Reverend Jane Jenkins led the service as our Landrum United Methodist remembered 9/11/01. Although all of our lives, our country, our freedom and our world were irrevocably changed forever,Rev. Jenkins reminded us that God never changes. God’s love, grace and forgiveness endure forever. God expects us to forgive even the terrorists who committed, to many of us, unforgivable acts. Biblical passages were read from Genesis 50:15-21 and Matthew 18:21-35 for illustration of
forgiveness. The congregation appreciates Danny Morgan and The New Prospect Fire Department for bringing their fire-truck and John Mullen who represented Rescue 11 of Landrum with their Rescue 11 vehicle. The Landrum High School Army JROTC also presented the United States and Christian flags under the direction of Curtis Tate. May we all continue to pray for our nation. –article submitted

and construct an emergency operation center. The development agreement is for 20 years. Resident Susan Johann expressed concern over the draft agreement including a dollar figure for the police officer. She said if the development doesn’t begin for five years, the value of the contribution could change. Council agreed to change the wording to more broad terms, such as stating that Foster Creek will provide the town with an entry-level salary for a police officer for two years. Other questions came from David Weiss, who asked why the agreement chose the $500,000 figure for Foster Creek to pay for running water lines. Town council said that number was negotiated between the town and the development and is based on engineering figures for the cost. Weiss also asked if there’s any connotation that the officer paid by Foster Creek will act as a security guard for the development. Columbus Mayor Eric McIntyre said the officer will be hired as a town employee and no one officer will be assigned to the development. He said different officers will patrol the development at different times and there will not be an officer at the development all the time. Lisa Krolack asked what happens with the agreement after 20 years. Columbus attorney Bailey Nager said the agreement can be reviewed every year by the town and Foster Creek and the agreement can be extended after the 20 years if necessary. Nager also said a development agreement is fairly new in North Carolina with large developments and is not required, but is an opportunity for each party to make sure that important things are accomplished. Foster Creek representatives also attended the public hear-
ing last week, including Scott Kilby, Foster Creek project manager with Forest City Land Group and attorney Michael Burch. Kilby said the improvements made, such as water and sewer lines, will be dedicated to the town and there will also be turn lanes placed on Hwy. 108 and/ or Houston Road. There will be two entrances to Foster Creek; one off Hwy. 108 and one off Houston Road. The state will determine whether or not turn lanes will be necessary at both entrances. “We believe this agreement will enhance the development of Foster Creek, and equally important, we believe the town and the public will gain substantial benefits with the development,” Kilby said. McIntyre said he feels there are many things in the agreement that will benefit Columbus, including all the infrastructure and the 300,000-gallon water tank. He said the emergency operation center will also be a benefit as he named a couple incidents in history when an emergency station would have been beneficial in that area. Columbus officials said a generator will be placed at the emergency operations center, whether it is installed by Foster Creek or the town. Foster Creek is a planned 687 dwelling unit subdivision located on 1,065 acres. The town approved the master plan on Nov. 19, 2009 and approved a special use permit on May 13, 2010, with both parties working on the development agreement since. Depending on the timing of state and federal approvals, infrastructure improvements, lot sales and approximately 100 lots are planned to be developed in the 2012 to 2014 timeframe. Lot development is expected to continue until 2030. Columbus Town Council meets this Thursday, Sept. 15, when the final development agreement will be considered.

Landrum Cardinals and Polk Wolverines went face-to-face Friday, Sept. 9, with the Cardinals coming out on top and breaking two streaks for their program. The Cardinals beat the Wolverines for the first time in nine seasons and opened a season 3-0 for the first time since 2004. (photo by Joey Millwood)
Landrum grabs first win against Polk in nine years The latest chapter in the Polk County-Landrum football saga was a dramatic one. Landrum clung to a 21-20 lead heading into the fourth quarter, but the Wolverines were driving. On a second down on the sixyard-line, Wolverine quarterback Alec Philpott handed the ball off to Cary Littlejohn. Littlejohn ran for a touchdown up the middle. On the next drive, Landrum answered. Landrum quarterback Brandon Cannon threw a bullet down the
Player of the Week: #83 Markece Cunningham
right sideline to Peyton McCarter for a 32-yard touchdown. The next play, however, proved to be the game changer. Up 2726, the Cardinals lined up for the kickoff after the McCarter touchdown and surprised everyone in the stadium, especially the Polk special teams. The Cardinals booted an onside kick and recovered it easily. Nine plays later, Cannon found Jordan Lindsey in the back of the endzone for the game-clinching touchdown to go up 34-26.
Two streaks ended for Landrum on Friday night. For the last eight seasons, Polk County has owned the border rivalry with Landrum. In the process that snapped another streak. Landrum hasn’t opened a season 3-0 since 2004. On the back of another emotional victory, Landrum Head Coach Russell Mahaffey was elated after the game. “It feels great (to snap the Polk County streak),” Mahaffey said.
“It’s great for our program.” One of Polk County’s main concerns coming into the ballgame, Wolverine head coach Bruce Ollis said, was Landrum’s spread offense and the ability to attack all points. In the first half, Landrum offensive coordinator Tucker Hamrick had the Cardinal offense moving. Cannon guided the Cardinal offense down the field in the first drive, hitting Cole McDowell wide (Continued on page 11)

â€˘â€‰Border rivalry (continued from page 10)
open in the flat for a 25-yard touchdown pass. Polk County (3-1), however, answered with a Jay Sutton touchdown on the next drive. Cannon again led the Cardinals back down the field on the next drive. This time he connected with McCarter on a 16-yard pass. McCarter finished with 81 yards receiving and two touchdowns. â€œWe played hard, fought hard and we went out and got it,â€? former Polk player and current Landrum defensive back T.J. Fincher said. Cannon spread the ball around the entire game. He threw two touchdown passes to McCarter and two to McDowell. The final and game-clinching touchdown went to Jacob Lindsey. The Wolverines didnâ€™t roll over. Markece Cunningham picked up a fumble and ran it back 62 yards in the third quarter to tie the game at 14 all. One of the more controversial plays came in the closing seconds
of the first half. The Wolverines driving, hoping to go into the locker rooms with some momentum. In the closing seconds of the first half, Philpott threw a short pass to Tyler Ridings. Ridings took off for the endzone and the Wolverine football team and fans celebrated what they thought was a touchdown. The referees ruled otherwise and Landrum went into the half with a 21-14 lead. The Wolverines came out inspired in the second half and turned to star tailback Littlejohn. Littlejohn scored two touchdowns in the second half and tallied 117 yards in the game, but the Wolverines just couldnâ€™t topple the Cardinalsâ€™ offense. It was the Cardinalsâ€™ ability to make the big plays that was Polkâ€™s downfall in the game, Ollis said. â€œThey executed a little better than we did,â€? Ollis said. â€œI thought that was the difference in the ball game. Gotta give them credit.â€? For Landrum, the key was not only offense, but defense.

â€œTo overcome the mistakes we made in the first half was big,â€? Mahaffey said. â€œThe defense had their backs against the wall in this
game and they came up big.â€? Landrum will be on the road at Dixie next week. Polk plays Madison at home.

Singer/songwriter Tom Fisch to perform at FENCE FENCE Family Concerts will begin its fall season with an appearance by singer and songwriter Tom Fisch on Sunday, Sept. 18 at 4 p.m. A native of Albany, New York, Fisch began playing the guitar when he was 10 years old and went on to perform throughout the northeast.

Fisch will be performing a number of his own songs as
well as traditional favorites from the folk and country repertoire. FENCE Family Concerts are offered free of charge with the support of the Kirby Endowment Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation. For more information, call 828-859-9021 or email info@ fence.org. -article submitted

The 78th Any and All Dog Show will take place at the Green Creek Equestrian Park on Saturday, Oct, 8 from 2 – 5 p.m. All entry fees are donated to the Foothills Humane Society, which will be on hand for the event. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are invited to come out and put their best paw forward for this non-serious event. There will be a BBQ dinner at the park Saturday evening, with proceeds to benefit the new park. The Tryon Riding and Hunt Club will present the second an-
nual “A Day in the Country” on Sunday, Oct. 9 at the Green Creek Equestrian Park. Last year’s event was a laidback day of classes set on an outside course, harking back to Tryon’s equestrian roots. This year will be much the same. The event provides a chance to enjoy a picnic lunch while watching the competition and get a preview of the new park. In addition to the open jumping classes in the morning, there will also be an Open Pleasure flat class, sponsored by Lillie Brown,
for horses and ponies of any breed, type, or discipline. The Ride-a-Buck class, last year’s most entertaining class of the day, will also return. New to the 2011 event is a Hunter Pairs Class in which a pair of riders, representing a local equestrian organization or community nonprofit, will complete a jumping course together. The winning pair will earn $500, donated by Camp Wayfarer, for their group. - article submitted by Laura Weicker
