Landrum narrows down options for depot architect by Samantha Hurst

Landrum City Council members Thursday, Sept. 29 narrowed down their choices to three architects to redesign the city depot. John Walters Architects and Brady/Trakas Architects, both of Tryon and Mark S. Eggl out of Greenville, S.C., all stood out as the council’s top selections. The cost for the planning phase of the project comes in at $20,000, with $15,000 provided by a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation. The city paid the additional $5,000. City Administrator Steve Wolochowicz said the total construction phase is estimated at $250,000, but that could fluctuate based on a variety of considerations. He said regardless of the final project budget, the city would attempt to seek out additional grants. What couldn’t be funded through grants would be (Continued on page 4)

covered by bond that would later be paid back with hospitality tax revenues. Mayor Robert Briggs said he appreciated the hard work of the design firms that submitted proposals. “It was real close for me,” Briggs said. “Several of the designs had elements that I really liked. But in the end we have to select one and move forward.” Council members discussed desires for the depot to be more open and bright so it would be inviting to community members and visitors. Proposed plans for the redesign include historic elements with modern conveniences and touches including a full kitchen, publicly accessible bathrooms, more open space and large windows to let in light. The space is also expected to allow for the display of historic photos and artifacts of the town’s history. The designs all also in-

he did with the Tryon Depot – they did a great job over there.” Mayor Briggs said, “I think we received several very good designs. I just think we have to ask a few more questions to make sure what we want to do is feasible financially.” The largest aspect up for debate involved whether to replace the roofing atop the depot. The current roof was put in place almost two decades ago but is newer in style, mimicking the fire department’s roof across the street. Some council members wanted to go ahead and replace the roof to return it to a more historically accurate look, while others believed

enough aggravating factors in the case. Judge Gary Gavenus set McGraw’s bond at $750,000. McGraw has previously been held at the N.C. Department of Corrections under no bond. Mintz’ family attended court sessions on Monday, when her daughters spoke of their fear of McGraw. Mintz’ oldest daughter also told the judge about a conversation she had with McGraw after her mother’s murder, in which McGraw said he was leaving town and that he was going into the woods where no one could find him. McGraw’s mother, Joanne McGraw London, also attended and said if McGraw was released from jail he would have a place to stay. McGraw’s attorney, Tony Dalton, talked about McGraw’s work jbtrees - page 10

it would be more prudent to leave the roof and save money. The roof is not currently in disrepair. Wolochowicz said while the city is still in the very initial stages of planning for a depot remodeling, he is optimistic the project will prove beneficial for the city once everything is ironed out and work completed. “We could lease out the depot to civic groups, but also if someone wanted to have a wedding reception there or other event they would be able to do that,” Wolochowicz said. “There aren’t a lot of other options for events in the immediate area and we could potentially gain some revenue once improvements are made. All around I think this could be a very positive thing.” history in law enforcement, that he was a firefighter and that he had been in the Air Force. Mintz was found murdered at the Saluda Mountain Lodge, which her family owned at the time, on Feb. 19, 2011. Evidence against McGraw includes a shotgun of McGraw’s that was tied to the crime scene, Dierauf said Monday. Dierauf also said McGraw had motive, as he had a girlfriend who gave him an ultimatum about leaving his wife. The defense said they believe McGraw’s answer to the ultimatum was to shoot his wife. McGraw entered a motion into superior court asking the court to suppress cell phone evidence, including text messages between him and his girlfriend. That motion was not heard this week. Judge Gavenus set McGraw’s bond at $750,000 and ordered McGraw not to possess any firearms or to have any contact with Mintz’ family if he makes bond.

Take part in dedication of Polk County history Imagine more than 230 years ago a troop of men sparking fires and resting their heads near the Polk-Rutherford County line the night before their final effort to drive British Loyalists from Western North Carolina. Today the significance of that encampment and the journey that followed will be honored with the certification of Alexander’s Ford as a part of the Overmountain National Victory Historic Trail. From Alexander’s Ford, the Liberty Men trekked 40 hours to Kings Mountain, where an epic battle ensued to “turn the tide” of success in the overall war effort. This important element of Polk County history will be dedicated today at 3 p.m. All community members are invited, and we encourage the public to attend. Several hours before the ceremony, Overmountain Victory Trail Association reenactors, dressed in period costume, will lead local students in hands-on demonstrations of life in 1780. Members of our community have worked diligently to ensure this momentous occasion occurred. The project was developed under the direction of Ambrose Mills III, who is a direct descendant of Colonel Ambrose Mills. Col. Mills led the Tory militia from this area. Mills led the effort to preserve the 162-acre historic property with generous grants and contributions from the Bradley Foundation. Hopes for the future involve turning the area into a nature preserve that will be low cost and low maintenance for the county to manage. Last year, county commissioners approved a budget of $1,419,500 for the project. We applaud Mills and county leaders for recognizing the significance of this historic area and the importance of sharing it with the public so future generations understand what the area’s forefathers sacrificed, not only for this area, but also for their country. The public ceremony will take place at the trail entrance adjacent to Gray’s Chapel Church near the Polk-Rutherford county line at 3 p.m. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

Hospice of Carolina Foothills celebrates 30 years of service Gala celebration set for Nov. 15

In 1981, the Space Shuttle Columbia launched for the first time. There was talk about an IBM machine called a PC. And in the foothills of the Carolinas, a brand new organization, Hospice of Polk County, came into being. Over the course of three decades, this same organization became Hospice of the Carolina Foothills (HoFC), expanded its services, added facilities and altogether altered the quality of life in a three-county community. It all started with Rev. Tracy Lamar, David Wells and Jack Allen, three individuals with a vision to create a support system whereby people suffering from terminal illness could receive medical treatment, as well as spiritual and emotional guid(Continued on page 11)

ance for themselves and their families. In 1981, nine patients received hospice care thanks to the efforts of the founders and many other supporters in Polk County and Landrum. In 2010, HoCF offered hospice care to 330 people, plus palliative and bereavement care to hundreds of individuals and families in Polk County, Spartanburg and Greenville counties. Jean Eckert, LPN, took the job of patient care coordinator in 1982. And since 1989, she has steered the organization as its CEO. “Every day, for 30 years,” said Eckert, “our staff and volunteers have been dedicated to the needs of men, women, and children who live with serious and terminal illness, and to the needs of their families. “We continue today and will into the future that which was started 30 years ago by our local hospice heroes and heroines, many of whom are still involved as volunteers. It is a testament to their dedication and to the worthiness of their cause.” Over the years, board members, staff, volunteers and community supporters have worked together to provide steady and dependable hospice services that have withstood unpredictable health care changes and an uncertain economy. In addition, HoFC has achieved the following: • A Palliative Care Program that extends more comprehensive healthcare to the foothills community • The extension of hospice care, palliative care, bereavement services and education into Spartanburg and Greenville counties in South Carolina • The construction of the N.C. Administration and Program Center on land donated by St. Luke’s Hospital • The design and building of the 12-bed Hospice House in Landrum

• The opening of the Hospice Thrift Barn in Landrum • The collaborative effort of opening a Healthcare Information Center in Inman. As today’s HoFC leaders continue to realize and expand the vision of the original founders, they said they also understand the value of pausing to celebrate this significant anniversary. On Saturday, Nov. 5, The Friendship Circle, a women’s committee to benefit HoCF, will present “Boots and Bling,” a 30th anniversary gala celebration, with proceeds benefitting the Hospice House. For information about tickets and the evening’s agenda, call Diane or Maureen in the HoCF development office at 828-894-7000.

Andy Millard (left) accepts a plaque of recognition for his Tryon Depot preservation work from outgoing TDDA president Crys Armbrust. (photo submitted)

TDDA recognizes preservation efforts by Millard and Lane The Tryon Downtown Development Association held its annual meeting Monday, Sept. 26 at the newly renovated Tryon Depot. Following a short opening reception, the business portion of the meeting was called to order by outgoing TDDA President Crys Armbrust. The president’s address followed, including a still-photography video of the “TDDA Year in Review,” found at http:// youtube/4Bderlo92U0. After the election of the 20112012 new board members and officers, Armbrust cited three accomplishments occurring on his watch as president in which he said he would always take great pride: • A $3.2-million private/public investment certified by the NC Department of Commerce • The restoration of the 1906 Tryon Depot • The restoration of the Sunnydale property The depot and Sunnydale building restorations garnered Andy Millard and Bob Lane TDDA Awards “in recognition and deep appreciation of service to the Tryon Downtown Development Association and the Town of Tryon, N.C.” Parallel recognitions occurred on the next day

Bob Lane

when the Town of Tryon Board of Commissioners acknowledged the same contributions in proclamations of recognition for Millard and Lane. Both TDDA and the Town of Tryon promote awareness of and appreciation for Tryon’s historic architectural catalog and officials said they wanted to celebrate the selfless generosity of spirit by individuals who contribute to the preservation of the community’s historic architectural assets. They also said they recognized the powerful positive communal effects these preservation efforts have in Tryon and Polk County to build citizen awareness of local architectural history and to instill community pride through a collective sense of heritage. – article submitted by Crys Armbrust

Work by local artists sought for gallery at St. Luke’s Hospital St. Luke’s Hospital houses some original artwork from local artists. Coordinated by the Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS), the revolving exhibit changes approximately every three months. What once was a small exhibit has more than tripled to 95 pieces representing 35 local artists. “We’re extremely pleased to provide a venue for local artists to display their talent, but we’re also hopeful that these original paintings are truly healing arts,” said Ken Shull, St. Luke’s Hospital CEO. “Not only will staff and

visitors appreciate creative expressions, I know our patients have and will benefit greatly.” The art exhibit has expanded from covering only the St. Luke’s back hall to now including the inpatient hallway leading to the nurse’s station and the walls of several departments and waiting rooms. This requires many additional works of art, so TPS has extended an invitation to exhibit to other artists in the community. Anyone interested in displaying an oil painting, watercolor or a sculpture that can hang on a wall

can call Jean Wright with TPS at 828-859-8359. This rotation will hang from October 2011 – February 2012. In order for a work to be included in the exhibit, TPS will need the artwork information (title, artist) by Thursday, Oct. 13, and the artwork will need to be delivered to the classroom at St. Luke’s Hospital on Friday, Oct. 14 or Saturday, Oct. 15. TPS has formalized rules for this exhibit: • Open to members and nonmembers of TPS.

• Because the exhibit is in a public space, nudes are not appropriate. • Participants must sign a St Luke’s Hospital liability waiver (in the volunteer workroom). Contact information for the artist is provided (if desired) with the tag for each piece. The artist is responsible for any sale of art. A piece may be removed from the exhibit when it is sold. St. Luke’s asks that you advise the coordinator so they can find a replacement for the sold artwork. – article submitted by Jennifer Wilson

Recognizing a new age of bullying for our kids Bullying is the intentional physical, verbal or psychological torment of a peer that can range from hitting, shoving, namecalling, threats and mocking to extorting money and treasured possessions. Some kids bully by shunning others and spreading rumors about them. Others use email, chat rooms, instant messages, social networking websites and text messages to taunt others or hurt their feelings. This is the new age of bullying. Bullying has always been around. Many adults endured some sort of childhood bullying, but it was usually in the form of name-calling or teasing and managed to stay confined to a playground. Today, the concept of bullying is the same as it has always been, but its method of delivery has changed with the times. Technology has become a giant megaphone broadcasting names and threats across cyberspace, leaving a digital trail of torment that many children and teens feel is inescapable. Sadly, the news has recently highlighted horrific stories of

Journey to wellness by Rob Fuller

child and teen suicide because of bullying. As a therapist working primarily with children and teens, I routinely treat clients dealing with the effects of bullying. Often, these children have symptoms of depression and anxiety that need to be treated before the child’s mental state further deteriorates to a place of hopelessness. Sometimes these kids are too scared to tell anyone what is truly the cause of these symptoms because they are ashamed or afraid of retribution. It is important for parents to recognize the signs that their children may be enduring bullying behavior, and seek professional help if they suspect this is happening to their child. Signs include: • Loss of interest in school and extracurricular activities • Frequent complaints of illness

to avoid attending school • Sudden decrease in academic performance • Has few or no friends with whom he/she spends time with • Unexplained bruises, scratches, and cuts • Seems afraid of going to school, riding the bus, walking to school or taking part in organized activities with peers • Takes long or illogical route to school • Seems sad, moody or depressed • Loss of appetite • Trouble sleeping • Anxiety or low self-esteem Once a parent knows that his or her child is the victim of bullying, it is time to seek professional help. If it is happening at school, parents must first approach the administration to stop the behavior and notify the parents of the bullies. School counselors and therapists can help your child deal with the emotional aspects of bullying. If a child has been “cyber-bullied,” more intensive therapy may be needed, as well as significant family support.

A child who has been bullied through technology via social networking (Facebook, MySpace, etc.) or text messages may truly feel that the whole world is laughing… that the whole world is witnessing this denigrating behavior. That humiliation alone can lead to thoughts of suicide. These new methods of bullying are often easier for bullies to use because of the impersonal nature of technology. It is much easier to leave an anonymous nasty post on a victim’s Facebook page or send an instant message than it is to stand face to face and do it. The good news is parents can control this form of bullying by limiting the access to the technology, “blocking” the bully (phone, online, etc.), and becoming involved in your child’s online world (monitoring posts, etc.). Rob Fuller, MSW, P-LCSW, works at Polk Wellness Center offering solution-based therapy for children, teens and adults. For more information, please call 828-894-2222 or visit www. polkwellness.org.
