It’s not all that uncommon for Tryon residents to come across a bear in their yard these days, but one part-time Tryon couple has gotten to know a whole family of bears over the past couple of years. Harriet and Carlisle Hewitt, who have a home on Melrose Mountain, have become so familiar with a family of five bears that they have given the animals names. The bears frequent their property and their deck. One bear recently damaged their screen door in an attempt to enter the home. Harriet Hewitt speaks of the family as if they are her children. Carlisle said he has a different opinion, because he is the one who has had to take (Continued on page 3)

down all their birdfeeders and he is beginning to become fearful of the bears’ level of comfort around humans. Harriet Hewitt said they began seeing the bear they named Birdie in the fall of 2009. Harriet said she believes Birdie is the mother of Little Bess and Big Bubba and the grandmother of BoBo and BeBe, who are cubs that appeared this year. Birdie’s face looks older, the Hewitts said, so they are sure she is the older of the bears. The Hewitts have not seen Birdie this year, although she was a frequent visitor in 2009 and 2010. The Hewitts, who reside in Brooksville, Fla., visit their Tryon home frequently. Kip and Carol Jean Vosburg, who live off Hearthstone Ridge Road in Landrum, also had a visit from a bear earlier this month. (Continued on page 4)

The agency says its goal is to keep the state’s bear population at a level that fits with land-use objectives and acceptable levels of human contact. DNR says it has no records of bears attacking people in the state, but it reminds residents that feeding bears is illegal and could result in a fine of up to $500.

‘Mill SpringColumbus’ water line on agenda by Leah Justice

After not meeting for several months, Polk County and the towns of Columbus, Saluda and Tryon will meet jointly tomorrow, Thursday, Sept. 22. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Columbus Town Hall. The main item on the agenda is a “Mill Spring-Columbus water line to connect county and Columbus Water Department.” The joint meetings began in

discussed the project. DOT District Engineer Steve Cannon said clearing was done a couple of weeks ago in the Silver Creek Community and a construction crew should begin work this week. Cannon said the paving work on Bishop Lane should take about two months to complete. During the Polk County Board of Commissioners Sept. 6 meeting, the county approved a resolution to add Silver Creek Community’s Winter Drive, Deerfield Drive and Lighthouse Drive to the state’s secondary road maintenance system. Cannon said the state has received those petitions and is moving forward with investigating the roads. Cannon told commissioners the process of adding roads to the state’s system normally takes six months to a year, depending on any right-of-way issues. Winter Drive includes seven homes and is 0.08 miles in length, Deerfield Drive includes six homes and is 0.09 miles long and Lighthouse Drive includes six homes and is 0.09 miles long. Yarbrough spoke at the DOT meeting and thanked the state and the county for their help in improving the Silver Creek community. “It’s gratifying to see the DOT working and cutting down trees,” Yarbrough said. “We’re still a long way from achieving what we want to achieve. We do appreciate it and

The councils of each town and county commissioners have discussed how to work jointly on creating a water authority. In February, the group invited elected officials from the Tuckasegee Water and Sewer Authority to speak on its process of creating a joint system. Polk, Columbus, Saluda and Tryon have also mentioned working together on other joint issues, such as economic development and tourism.

just want to thank you.” Formerly known as Land of Lakes, Silver Creek Community is located off Silver Creek Road in the Mill Spring area. The subdivision consists of 369 parcels and was first established in 1972. The homeowner’s association disbanded in 2001 and the roads, which had already begun deteriorating, continued to grow worse. Residents began a few years ago asking for the state’s help in maintaining the roads, which were so dilapidated and dangerous that school buses could not enter to pick up children. Residents banded together in 2007 to improve the neighborhood and in 2009 changed the name of the subdivision to the Silver Creek Community because of the bad reputation associated with the name Land of Lakes. Homeowners began to petition the state three years ago to take over maintenance and have since placed welcome signs in the community, built flower boxes, started regular litter collection days and have gathered to fill potholes in roads. The county joined the effort a few years ago and Sen. Tom Apodaca and Rep. David Guice contributed $75,000 each from their discretionary funds toward the project. The community also qualified for state transportation funding. The first phase of the Silver Creek project is estimated at $250,000 for 1.3 miles of road improvement.

Landrum election disputes to go to Spartanburg County by Samantha Hurst

It’s been a long time since Landrum has had any serious dispute over election results, according to city clerk Bunny Brelsford. But this year, if an issue arises with regard to votes, the complaint must go to the county election commission, not a local commission. Mayor Robert Briggs brought up the possibility of handing over election disputes to Spartanburg County at the last city council

meeting held Tuesday, Sept. 13. “Because election commissions are now being required to have more formal training, many counties including Spartanburg are taking on the role of running elections for towns,” Briggs said. The additional training, Brelsford said, would also mean additional funds out of the city coffers because the city would have to foot the bill for citizens on the commission to participate in added training sessions.

She said it was difficult enough to get volunteers for the commission. “It’s one of those things that would be easier for the county to do it,” Brelsford said. “Before, if you had a problem you’d have to line up three people willing to give their time and often take off work to settle an issue. There aren’t many people willing to do that anymore.” Spartanburg County already has a strong role in local elec-

tions. Currently, the city clerk provides the list of candidates to the county, which then creates the ballots and counts the votes for the city. The council agreed handing things over to the county elections commission would be a good move and unanimously approved the change Tuesday, Sept. 14. The county elections commission will step in beginning in November should election disputes arise.

Author Gwen Suesse to speak at Holy Cross Episcopal Church Sept. 23 Local author Gwen Suesse will speak about her book, “WomanSong,” at a tea on Friday, Sept. 23 at 2 p.m. This event will take place in The Common Room at Holy Cross Episcopal Church, 150 Melrose Ave. in Tryon.

Suesse’s book talks about all the stages of a woman’s life and likens the experience to musical interludes, each with its own expression and rhythm. The book is illustrated by Renee Locks, who designs the “BrushDance” series of

greeting cards and stationery. Suesse is a mother, grandmother, former high school choral director and a MyersBriggs consultant. The public is invited to hear and speak with Suesse and to enjoy an afternoon tea.

Autographed copies of the book will available after the presentation. Please call Holy Cross at 828-859-9741 to reserve a spot. – article submitted by Wanda May

Seeing benefits of census

Saluda city leaders believe they could soon see the benefit of efforts to complete an accurate profile for the town during the 2010 U.S. Census. City leaders took a proactive approach to getting each head in town counted by enrolling in the census early estimation. This allowed town employees to count homes and fill in blanks from documents in 2000. What Saluda discovered was that the city had been missing out on tax dollars generated by an additional 100-plus people. For a city the size of Saluda this could add up to a lot of money over a decade - according to Mayor Baisden it might even amount to more than $100,000. In a time when towns and cities are increasingly strapped for cash to fund services - Saluda hiked taxes by 10 cents this year and garbage rates by three percent - acquiring an accurate count of residents becomes even more important. Though it will be another decade down the road before another census count rolls around, we hope people see this as an example of why it is important to make sure every person is accounted for in a town. After all, if you are going to spend your hard-earned dollars locally, wouldn’t you prefer that tax money also be redistributed back to your hometown? — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

America’s greatness To the Editor: I can see the sage of Birdland as Obama’s Rationing Czar. Share resources equally. Ten gallons of gas per month – no one can have more until everyone can have 11.

Saluda police officers to get new enforcement tools by Samantha Hurst

Saluda police officers will soon have more law enforcement tools within reach after the Saluda Board of Commissioners voted Monday, Sept. 12 to approve the purchase of additional equipment for the department. Four new stop sticks, four alcohol sensors and four tasers amounted to a total purchase price of $7,365. Chief James Cantrell said he was asking for four of each item so that when an officer

gets in his or her vehicle, they know the equipment they need is inside. He said the alcohol sensors in particular come in handy. “If we think that someone is intoxicated enough to arrest them and we arrest them and take them down to Polk County and find out they have not had enough to drink to be arrested, we are looking at a possible lawsuit for false arrest,” Cantrell said. The alcohol sensors give officers a rough estimate of

alcohol levels on an individual’s breath. Commissioner Johnny Kinard said the current alcohol sensor was at the department 15 years ago. Meanwhile, other equipment, such as the lone taser owned by the department, is also far beyond outdated. “The tasers that we have now are over six years, going on seven years old and the recommendation from the company is that these be replaced every four years,” said Kinard.

“The tasers that we have now are over six years, going on seven years old and the recommendation from the company is that these be replaced every four years.” -- Saluda commissioner Johnny Kinard

Kinard moved that the request be approved, Sweet seconded and the motion was unanimously approved.

TLT’s ‘Clue: the Musical’ opens tomorrow, Sept. 23 “Clue: the Musical” opens Thursday night at Tryon Little Theater’s (TLT) Workshop. Based on the Parker Brothers board game, CLUE, the colorful and quirky characters in this show will invite the audience to help solve the mystery of who killed Mr. Boddy. Director Debbie Craig-Archer and musical director Ben Chumley, both from Spartanburg, S.C., bring with them years of experience in theater arts; local artists and crew have transformed the black box theater into a magical game-board; and the colorful cast of zany characters are ready to conspire and contrive. And the audience will help solve the mystery of who dunnit, where they did it, and with what: the candlestick or the gun; the rope or lead pipe; the wrench or the knife? And get this, there are 216 possible endings. “Clue: the Musical” runs for two weekends, Sept. 22 - 25 and Sept. 29 – Oct. 2 at TLT’s Workshop, 516 S. Trade St. in Tryon. The box office is open 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Call 828859-2466 to reserve tickets, or visit for more information. – article submitted by Monica Jones

Sifting the clues in ‘Clue’ Sleuthing her way through clues could be difficult in high heels, but someone has to do it. And this hardnosed gumshoe is flatfooted enough to take on the job of who killed Mr. Boddy. Professor Plum thinks he can charm her, but she lets the air out of his pomposity pretty promptly. You don’t mess with this lady! Since she’s been in education, written for the press and run her own marketing company, this little chicky knows all the tricks. But can she solve the mystery of who dunnit, with what and where? You’ll only find out if you come and put your backside on a theater seat. “Clue: the Musical,” Tryon Little Theater’s season opener, opens Thursday, Sept. 23. (photo by Lorin Browning)
