viable option for the area. This is the second time in recent months GOP officials have approached the town asking for assistance in controlling parking in the area of the easement. Columbus Police Chief Chris Beddingfield said the town will check with the fire department and building inspections office to ensure it is a legal fire lane. Most fire lanes in town are privately owned. Beddingfield has said previously the police department will respond to any disturbance on the property just as it does for any other property in the city. The new building will be located on Peake Street in Columbus where the former GOP headquarters was torn down. The roof of the former building collapsed in December 2009, and the building was demolished last year.

Architect’s drawing of the planned new Republican headquarters in Columbus.

The new building will be located on the same lot, but shifted to the right and front to allow for parking in the rear. Emergency, garbage and supply vehicles will enter the area to the left of the building instead of from the right side as they did before. There has been controversy

for years between local businesses and the Republican party about the easement, as well as public parking issues on the lot. Republican officials met with local businesses earlier this year to discuss the new building location, in what seemed to be a breakthrough in communications between party officials and

businesses. Yesterday’s ground-breaking participants enjoyed pizza from the nearby Brick Pizzeria. The Polk Republican Party’s slogan for the new building is “A New Beginning.” The fire lane issue will be discussed further during council’s Oct. 20 meeting.

Archie A. Pearson

Archie A. Pearson died peacefully on Aug. 17, 2011 at Tryon Estates, Columbus. After serving three years as a special agent in the FBI and 24 years as an executive with the Ford Motor Company, he and his wife, M. Marie, moved to Tryon in 1970. For more than 40 years, they have been members of the First Baptist Church of Tryon and during that time Archie served in numerous capacities there. Before it was incorporated into the Tryon water system, he was actively involved in the operation of Mountain Water (a system which provided water to about 25 homes). One of his lifelong hobbies was woodworking, especially jbtrees - page 10

making furniture for his home and loved ones. In 2001, he and his wife moved from their home in Tryon to Tryon Estates. He is survived by his wife of 66 years; their son, Michael, and daughter-in-law, Julie, of Wayne, Pa., and their granddaughter, Catherine, of Washington, D.C. A memorial service will be held at Tryon Estates in Columbus on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be given in his memory to either the First Baptist Church of Tryon, 125 Pacolet St., Tryon, N.C. 28782, or Hospice of the Carolina Foothills, 130 Forest Glen Drive, Columbus, N.C. 28722.

Bulletin rules for season leading up to Nov. 8 elections Ballot in hand on Nov. 8, will you be prepared to make an educated selection for the best candidates to fill roles on your city or town’s council? The Bulletin hopes to ensure that the electorate is adequately educated to make those decisions. We must do so, however, in a manner that ensures we are as fair as possible to all candidates. From this point the Bulletin will not publish letters to the editor submitted by candidates or press releases stating their positions. The Bulletin will, however, provide candidates with the opportunity to present their views and information about their backgrounds through submitted bios (300 words) and answers (150 words) to a set of questions that candidates should receive via mail or email this week. If you do not receive your questions by Friday, Sept. 30, please contact Samantha Hurst, editor; Barbara Tilly, managing editor, or Leah Justice, reporter, for a copy. The deadline to return those answers and bios is Oct. 7. Community members, meanwhile, may continue to submit letters regarding candidates, election issues, etc. until two weeks prior to elections.The last day the Bulletin will accept such letters will be Oct. 25. Letters to the editor can be no more than 500 words in length because of space constraints. Letters can also not be libelous or slanderous in nature. The Bulletin staff looks forward to an interesting election season that hopefully can be filled with solid rounds of civil discourse about the state of our cities and towns and how we can improve them into the future. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

Dental health puppet show Public health specialists in McDowell County use a dental health puppet show for preschoolers through first grade. On June 15 they presented a program to the Tryon Kiwanis Club about their effort to educate children about taking care of their teeth. With funds from a federal grant, they purchased the 12 puppets used in the show. With names like “Ruby Rah Rah,” “Mr. Bananas,” “Ruthie Toothie,” “Molly Moo Moo” and “Bucky Beaver,” the show makes learning about brushing, drinking water and milk instead of soda, eating good foods and visiting the dentist lots of fun for children. The Kiwanis Club is raising money to buy the puppets so that the show can be given in Polk County in the future. - article submitted by Lynn Montgomery

Shown are left to right, Amanda Crisp, Phyllis Davies, Drs. Bill and Mark McCall, Carla Anderson, and Blake Smyth. Amanda, Phyllis, and Carla are dental health professionals.

Polk County High School receives donation from Knights For the past 10 years the Knights of Columbus Council #9492 has presented Rhonda Hill, Exceptional Children’s (EC) teacher, with a check for the EC Program. This spring she accepted a donation of $500 from the Knights. This donation will provide lasting benefits to the students with purchases of classroom material, textbook sets and occupational courses of study. Hill is very proud of all the dedicated EC teachers she works with at Polk County High School (PCHS). The teachers include: Loretta Jackson (severe and profound programs), Heidi Evans (occupational course of study), John Paul McIntyre (resource classes), Patricia Brophy (behavior classes) and Lauren Stone (resource teacher). Presently, 95 students are in the program with various medical and all types of intellectual

disabilities. Eighty percent of the graduates attend post secondary education, technical schools, employment and join the military. These results are due to the hard work and devotion of all the EC teachers and the entire teaching staff at PCHS, said Rhonda Hill. The Knights of Columbus annual “Operation Lamb” project supports all those with the intellectual disabilities. The 2011 fund raiser will take place at the IGA in Tryon on Wednesday, Sept. 28 and at the Bi-Lo in Columbus and Landum on Oct. 14 and Oct. 15. The Knights expressed appreciation to the public and local businesses for their continued support and generosity to enable them to help the “least among the breathren.” – article submitted by Bill Mazurek

Tryon Concert Association announces “I Musici de Montreal” I Musici de Montreal, founded in 1983, is a chamber music orchestra of 15 musicians which presents a vast musical repertoire from baroque to contemporary. I Musici is classified as a chamber orchestra, which is similar to a full-sized orchestra, and only differs in the number of members. A chamber orchestra has typically 50 or fewer members, while a full-sized, or symphony orchestra, contains almost 100 or more musicians. Known for its gutsy, passionate music making, I Musici de Montréal presents programs featuring works by such composers as Tchaikovsky, Bach, Prokofiev and Dvorak. I Musici will create a concert to remember, when they play at Tryon Fine Arts Center, on March 22, 2012 at 8 p.m. The centerpiece of the Tryon program features Russ i a n c o m p o s e r, M u s s o rg sky’s, “Pictures at an Exhibition,” performed with choreographed paintings by award-winning artist, Natasha Turovsky. The production travels with digital projections of f i f t e e n l a rg e - s c a l e p a i n t ings, inspired by the original Victor Hartmann paintings that themselves inspired Mussorgsky’s music. Under the direction of Maestro Yuli Turovsky, I Mu-

Musici de Montreal

sici has performed in halls around the world including New York’s Lincoln Center, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Germany, and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.

Tryon Plein Air Society Paint-Out set for Oct. 1 at O’Bryant House The Tryon Plein Air Society (TAPAS) will hold its October Paint-Out Saturday, Oct. 1 at 9 a.m. This month’s event will be at the O’Bryant House, a weathered, two-story family home site from the 1880s. The house is located between Campobello and Landrum, on Highway 9, four miles north of Highway 11 and five and a half

miles south of Highway 14. “En plein air” is a French expression which means “in the open air” and is used to describe outdoor painting, which has been in vogue since the time of the Impressionists. All painters, beginner, advanced or professional, who would like to paint outdoors are welcome to attend. In addition to participating in

and promoting plein air painting, TAPAS is for connecting members with each other as painting companions and to provide opportunities to paint local landscapes outdoors. The group also promotes community awareness of plein-air painting through exhibits and the organization of paint-outs. TAPAS paint-outs are generally scheduled for the first Satur-

day of each month. There are no membership costs or dues for TAPAS group participation, but please bring your own supplies. For more information or directions, please email nctapas@ or contact Carl Cartee at 864-457-5122, or Cynthia Davis at 828-859-6891. - article submitted by Gloria R. Owenby
