Norwegian bikers pause in Tryon on East Coast tour by Samantha Hurst

The roaring engines and gleaming metal of Harleys appear commonplace on most weekends around the Thermal Belt, especially as the lure of changing leaves draws people into the mountains. There was something unique, however, about the pack of bikers that rolled through downtown Tryon Friday, Sept. 16. The 25 men and women touring the area were visiting all the way from Norway. “We were told the Blue Ridge Parkway through the mountains was a very scenic route,” said tour leader Magnus Ellingsen. “This is our first tour of the East Coast.” Ellingsen’s company, Two (Continued on page 4)

• Ashley Meadows (continued from page 1)

Circle just outside the town along Hwy. 108 near Polk County High School. The complex includes six buildings and 48 units, which house approximately 115 people. Ashley Meadows Property Manager April Lathan said the complex’s reasons for wanting to be a part of Columbus are twofold, including guaranteed police protection provided by the town and lower water bills for residents. Ashley Meadows is a multi-family complex geared toward lower-income residents, and Lathan said residents are having a difficult time paying outside town rates for water and sewer. Annexing Ashley Meadows would bring the town (Continued on page 4)

increased tax revenue but would reduce water and sewer revenue significantly. Columbus Town Manager Jonathan Kanipe said he will work to provide council with information about how much state revenue reimbursements, such as sales tax and beer and wine tax, would increase because of the gain in population. Kanipe provided council with figures on how bringing Ashley Meadows inside the town would affect tax revenues, as well as its effect on revenues from water, sewer and garbage fees. The complex is currently assessed at $2,007,307 in tax value, which would bring $7,026 in annual property tax revenue to the town. Water and sewer rates are higher for residents outside town limits. Ashley Meadows currently pays, at outside rates, an average of $52,665 per year in water, sewer and water line fees. If Ashley Meadows were annexed into the town, residents would be required to pay garbage rates, but would receive reduced water and sewer rates.

The town estimates the total revenue to the town’s enterprise (water/sewer) fund would be $27,029 if the complex is annexed. The town contracts garbage services with All Bright Sanitation, so officials didn’t count the added garbage fees as revenue. The total loss in water/ sewer revenue would be an estimated $25,636 annually if the property is annexed, comgined with the tax revenue gain of $7,026. Officials have made no estimates yet on whether the town would see an increase in state tax revenues because of the population increase if the annexation were approved. Columbus recently denied a request for a non-contiguous voluntary annexation from Giardini’s Gardens & Trattoria, a restaurant located on Hwy. 108 just beyond the high school. The town denied Giardini’s request twice in about a year. Council gave no indication last week how it feels about adding the apartment complex and population to the town. A public hearing will be required before council considers the final annexation request.

Landrum bans bath salts by Samantha Hurst

The term “bath salts” no longer represents a quiet moment of relaxation. In some circles, bath salts represent a dangerous way to get high, one that police departments and paramedics are combating on an increasingly regular basis. Lt. Tim Edgens of the Landrum Police Department asked Landrum’s City Council Tuesday, Sept. 13 to ban the sale or possession of the substances within city limits. Edgens said most officers on Landrum’s police force hadn’t even heard of the substances until a call came in about an out-of-control individual earlier this summer. “EMS was trying to figure out what to do to calm him down so we had to ask him what he was on… we didn’t even know what it was when his friends told us,” Edgens said. “When people use this it kind of has the same effects as PCP – it makes a wild man out of a person.” One council member asked if Epsom salts were included, but Edgens explained that this substance was not similar to traditional bath salts at all. He said these “bath salts” had no actual relation to the type of salts used in spas or home bathrooms.

way to the Blue Ridge Parkway down through Virginia and into North Carolina. “It’s beautiful country,” said one biker named Mortem. Apparently the weather had been favorable as well. “This is the first time on the trip we’ve had to put on our jackets,” Ellingsen said of the weather Friday. The group, perched on the backs of 16 bikes, parked just in front of the Tryon clock tower as they grabbed a bite to eat at Elmo’s. Shortly after lunch the leather wearing crew jumped back on their bikes and headed south to the South Carolina line. Ellingsen said they’d travel to Charleston next

“Some chemist has come up with a cocktail of different chemicals that they can call bath salts and sell it legally, but actually what people are doing is snorting them, smoking them, injecting them,” Edgens said. Edgens said he’s discovered the synthetic product is being sold in a few local convenience stores. He said although the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has banned three of the chemicals used to make the products, enforcing such a vague restriction is almost impossible for local law enforcement. Mayor Robert Briggs encouraged council to approve the ban within Landrum. “What cities are doing in response to there being a lack of a law is to pass an ordinance banning the stuff,” Mayor Briggs said. “We don’t need our young children especially being able to get their hands on this stuff.” Landrum City Council members passed such an ordinance Tuesday, Sept. 13 in a unanimous vote. Edgens said the next step is for the police department to send out a notice to local stores to remove the product from their shelves. before making their way down to the Florida Keys via the old scenic byway of Route 1. The group’s entire trip navigates 3,000 miles up and down the east coast. Foothills Chamber of Commerce Director Janet Sciacca, who happens to be a bike enthusiast herself, said bikers are drawn to our area and that’s a good thing. “It’s the mountains and the curvy roads that the bikers like and that’s great for bringing people into Polk County and Landrum,” Sciacca said. “If you ride a motorcycle and you live in South Carolina, Hwy. 176 and Highway 9 are two extremely popular rides with bikers, and so all those shops along the way see a lot of business from those that come through.” – Bulletin intern Carol Boissier contributed to this article.

Autumn Care receives state enhancement grant Autumn Care of Saluda has been chosen as one of three facilities in North Carolina to receive a Long-Term Enhancement Grant from the North Carolina Coalition for Long-Term Care Enhancement and the Division of Health Service Recognition for 2011. The facility plans to use the $14,900 grant to renovate its outdoor courtyard space. “We are extremely honored to have been selected for this opportunity,” said Administrator Glenn Pierce. “The funding will allow us to take an under-utilized space and develop it into a multipurpose, safe outdoor environment for our residents.” According to Activities Coordinator Joyce Coggins, the project fills an important need at the facility. “The renovation will add a number of new opportunities and features including a ‘wandering’ path for residents with dementia, new social areas for family and friends to visit, a water feature and various sensory garden features for the residents,” Coggins said. The renovated area will also enhance the facility’s Rehab Department. “We are designing a special ‘rehab sidewalk’ as part of the project,” said Rehab Manager Matilda Patrick. “There will be a section of sidewalk that will have all types of surfaces, useful in helping residents make a successful transition back home.” According to Pierce, Autumn Corporation is also providing

“We had a grant planning committee composed of residents, staff, families and community members. We are especially thankful for our neighbor Pat Waring who helped bring the many concepts to fruition.” Waring is a landscape consultant who lives across the street from Autumn Care.

AAA gives nod to Red Horse Inn The Red Horse Inn in Landrum was recently chosen by AAA inspectors as one of the Top 10 Places to Enjoy Fall Colors. Inspectors said they chose the inn, which is located on more than 200 acres at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, because it “offers breathtaking views of the natural surroundings, rock formations and foliage.” Other top 10 inns were located in Virginia, Maryland, Oregon, New England, Minnesotta, British Columbia and Canada. Peak foliage in the Upstate is from the second to fourth week in

October as a general rule of thumb but will continue into November. “The scenic views here are one of our greatest selling points. It enhances the overall serenity of the inn. We’re always at capacity during foliage months – but it’s nice now that the world knows our little secret,” said innkeeper Mary Wolters. The inn features six private cottages and six rooms as part of the main inn. You can read the complete list of inspector picks on AAA’s travel blog at AAATravelViews.com. – article submitted

Big splash for Big Brothers Big Sisters at pool party There’s hardly a better way for kids to end the hot summer than splashing in a cool pool with other kids. In August, the local Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) organization gave Littles and Bigs the opportunity to gather for a group celebration of summer fun before all the children headed back to school. Big Sister Carolyn Ashburn and her husband Chuck Hearon shared their backyard pool for the event. During a brief storm that forced a time-out, all gathered under tents and umbrellas to snack and visit. No one grumbled much about the intermission, organizers said, but as soon as the storm passed, the children went back to their water play. While one Little Sister spent the entire time practicing swimming, other Littles enjoyed games, floats and races in the pool.

BBBS hosts several group activities annually. Bigs and Littles schedule other outings twice a month to engage in activities both enjoy, such as going to plays, cooking, planting flowers or attending a sports event. The annual party was made possible in part by a grant from the Arthur M. and Frances H. Wilhelm Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation. In addition to the traditional community-based matches, BBBS has a school-based program that serves children in area elementary schools. There is always a waiting list of boys and girls who need and want a mentor. Those interested in volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters are encouraged to call 828-859-9230 for more information. – article submitted by Karen Dacey
