Part store, part museum M.A. Pace in Saluda focus of PCHA program by Leah Justice

Walking into M.A. Pace’s store in Saluda is like stepping back in time. The store still serves as a general store where visitors can pick up hardware and general merchandise, but it has also been arranged as a museum of Saluda’s history. The store’s new owners, Leon Morgan and his daughter, Tangie Ciarvolo, discussed the history of the store and reviewed items that can be found there for the Polk County Historical Association on Tuesday, Oct. 4. (Continued on page 3)

Historical association president Anna Conner said, “If you haven’t visited M.A. Pace’s General Store, you’re really missing out. It’s a store and museum the way they have arranged everything.” The store was opened in 1899 by M.A. Pace, who at one time partnered with Thompson’s store in Saluda.

Commissioner chair Ray Gasperson said there an incredible amount of work has been done to get the position created. “Now we’re finally going to have this paid staff member with us,” said Gasperson. “I know she is going to do a superb job.” Former economic development commission member Jeff Byrd said no one worked as hard as Johnson on the board. Andy Millard said Johnson is an excellent, wonderful choice for the position.

“This county needs her and her kind of enthusiasm and passion,” Millard said. “I could not imagine a better choice.” Mills introduced Johnson, saying she served on the Economic Development Commission (EDC) board for five years, previously served on Mecklenburg County’s Community Development Commission, owned a marketing and public relations firm, taught school and served as executive director of a home furnishings industry trade association.

the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, has a comprehensive knowledge of Polk County and its needs and hopes for the future, Mills said. “I appreciate your support,” Johnson told commissioners. “I’m really excited about this. I’ve got what I think are some good ideas to move the county forward to give the county a good base of economic stability.” Johnson will be paid as contract labor at a rate of $4,166 per month, or approximately $50,000 per year. The contract includes a stipulation that an additional $10,000 per year can be paid to Johnson, “for demonstrated performance above expectations.” Polk County previously had an economic development director but eliminated the position a couple of years ago. The EDC board remained intact and ran the operations of the department. The current board decided during this year’s budget preparations to combine the departments of economic development and travel and tourism into the economic tourism development (ETD) department. Tourism director Melinda Young’s position was decreased from fulltime to part-time and the tourism portion of the ETD department is budgeted at only the approximate $64,000 expected from occupancy tax. Johnson will oversee both economic development and tourism

duties for the county. According to a press release, Johnson will lead efforts aimed at facilitating and sustaining the county with viable businesses and good-paying jobs. Her role will include leading an aggressive program to recruit new businesses to Polk County, while developing and implementing initiatives to broaden and diversify the county’s tax base. Johnson will also focus on creating a healthy business climate, promoting employment opportunities, strengthening existing businesses and fostering entrepreneurship. Mills also announced the appointments of a new chair and vice-chair for the ETD board. Craig Hilton will serve as chair and Dennis Hill will serve as vice-chair. Commissioners recognized Mills for his six years of service with the EDC board.

Truck overturns on S. Lyles in Landrum A full-size Chevy truck overturned on S. Lyles St. in Landrum yesterday, Tuesday, Oct. 5. The driver told the Landrum Police he fell asleep while driving.

Steps to HOPE observes Domestic Violence Awareness month Editor’s note: The following was submitted by Steps to HOPE in observance of October as Domestic Violence Awareness month. The alarm goes off before 5 a.m., and in a sleepy haze I tell myself, “Just five more minutes, please.” My eyes flutter open as covers are tossed aside and bare feet make contact with the floor. Yawning and stretching, I begin my day with a familiar mantra: “Okay, time to get moving on this hopeful new day.” Many people begin each day with hope. They have modest hopes for a pleasant day, rain, happiness or good health. Often they hope for something more complex, like the healing of a family member who is gravely ill or help for those addicted to some form of substance. There are an endless number of things people have hope for throughout their waking moments. For victims of domestic violence, however, hope can

be hard to come by, according to Steps to HOPE officials. Victims often come to Steps to HOPE because abuse has destroyed any hope for their situation or the possibility of a healthy, productive future. These victims are bruised and battered, sometime physically, always emotionally, with no

idea how to get through today, much less tomorrow. Steps to HOPE officials said many victims find hope in their belief that by educating the batterer through their Domestic Abuse Intervention Program (DAIP), they will help end the cycle of domestic violence. Each day, Steps to HOPE

officials said, they hope that by helping to rebuild lives with understanding, encouragement, judicial process assistance and resources, they will empower domestic violence survivors so that they might start each new day with hope. - article submitted by Cherie Wright

Hospitality is far more than just punch and cookies. For those of us born in the south it evokes images of elegantly entertaining friends while adhering to a set of rather strict social and cultural norms and expectations. However, the etymology of the word “hospitality” reveals that it is derived from the Latin word “hospes,” which comes from “hostis,” meaning “to have power.” Therefore, the meaning of “hospitality” can literally be “to hold power over strangers.” In the ancient desert cultures of the Middle East, hospitality was considered far more than just good manners. In the desert there were three kinds of people: 1) the settled tribe, 2) the resident

alien, and 3) the traveler. The settled tribe held the power since it generally controlled the sources of food and water. The resident alien was someone allowed long term access to these resources, but without other rights and privileges. The traveler was simply at the mercy of the host. Among those tent-dwelling people, hospitality was a sacred act and an absolute obligation because to refuse hospitality to a traveler in the desert was to turn him out into the elements and possible death. In that way, to be inhospitable was tantamount to murder. Since the sojourner was so completely vulnerable, only the force of the hospitality code offered them any pro-

tection. That code of conduct made it obligatory for the host to provide the traveler with food, water and shelter. In return, the traveler was obliged to eat what was set before him and to engage in no hostile act. To turn a traveler away or to refuse to provide food, water and shelter was also considered a hostile act. In either case, the peace of the community was tied directly to the manner in which resisdents obeyed the hospitality code of conduct. The parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:29-37) is Jesus’ response to a question of hospitality. In the parable a man was waylaid on the road and left for dead, and after members of his own people had walked by him, a Samaritan, a member of an enemy sect, aided the man.

The point of the parable answered the question, “Who is my neighbor?” by stating that we are to behave like the Samaritan and to offer hospitality and to show mercy to everyone, even those least like us. Unfortunately for we who live in the 21st century, our concept of hospitality is often truncated or distorted. We see ourselves as hospitable to our friends and those who are like us, or we conceive of hospitality as a way to rise higher in society or a profession through the cultivation of relationships. Even in our places of worship we endeavor to find a place where we are “comfortable,” meaning “among those like ourselves.” But what if we took hospitality seriously? What would our towns, our lives, our

Exploring historic and remote Cataloochee Valley As you top the mountain and start down the other side, a single lane dirt road winds you into a remote valley that gives you the sense that you have stumbled upon a lost and forgotten part of the country. And as you travel down the base of the valley, you feel the remoteness of the area is what kept such a beautiful area from ever being inhabited. It’s hard to believe that the secluded Cataloochee Valley, which consists of some very green fields, a small church, a schoolhouse and a couple of old farmhouses that are all now vacant, was once the place more than 1,200 people called home. There are many things to do in the valley. Of course at the top Headstones sit in a wooded graveyard in the Cataloochee Valley.

end of settlement in the valley, and nearing the dawn of the national park, people in the valley housed folks who traveled there to hunt the area. Folks also came to the area drawn by the mineral-rich springs, which were thought to have healing qualities. A few of the homes still stand. Most were built as log homes that are now covered by white lap siding. You will notice a rather unusual occurrence with their small family graveyards. They were not conveniently located in the back yard where they could be easily maintained, but rather were located high up on the ridges that overlook the valley. It seemed like the steeper the hill the better. There are trails that lead to the graveyards, but be prepared for a rather short but very steep hike. How to get there To get to the Cataloochie Valley, take I-26 west to I-40 west, travel to exit 20 (Hwy. 276), take 276 north about 1/10 of a mile and turn on Cove Creek Road. This is a narrow winding dirt

road most of the way, so don’t be in a rush. There are a lot of trucks with horse trailers on this road at times. After you cross over the top of the mountain, travel down the other side until it turns to pavement. You can easily spend an entire day or several days in the valley, but at least travel there for an evening and check out the elk herds and the old homes and buildings that are easy to access. Be sure to bring a camera, binoculars or whatever you choose to give yourself some “zoom” power. It is against the law to approach or harass the elk. Folks are encouraged to stay near the road. The Cataloochee Valley is one of the many cool places to check out here in our own mountains. Rob McComas is a licensed North Carolina fishing guide on Lake Lure and Lake Jocassee in S.C.

Saluda Community Land Trust plans to battle kudzu Hikes set for Sundays Thanks to a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation (PCCF), Saluda Community Land Trust (SCLT) will work on kudzu control for the next year, even during the winter months as weather permits. The organization has several sites picked out, some of which are continued from last year. Kudzu control takes several years of hard work before it’s time to breathe that sigh of relief. SCLT’s plan is to address each site during the next 12 months. The group will use different methods based on conditions at each individual site. SCLT suggests a few steps for residents to take in the meantime. Check power poles and power lines for kudzu. If

there is a problem, find out what company owns the power pole. Call them and report the problem and exact location. SCLT suggests cutting back kudzu vines as far back as you can. Any underbrush should also be cut back. Kudzu does climb but it can only grow 3½ feet up before it falls. That is why it is always searching for something to climb. SCLT has also scheduled hikes on the first and third Sunday of each month, weather permitting. Hikers meet at the parking lot of the Saluda Library at 2 p.m. For more information, contact Nancy at 828-749-4661 or Chuck at 828749-9886. For further information about SCLT, call 828-749-1560 or visit www. www.saludaclt. org. – article submitted by Nora Parks Anderson

Speaker to talk on alkaline water benefits Water for Life speaker Bill Carter, son of Tryon resident Peggy Carter, will present a talk on the benefits of Alkaline water for people, horses and other pets. The talk will be held from today, Thursday, Oct. 6 from 7:30-8:30 p.m. at FENCE. Carter plans, along with an assistant, to provide samples of the water and demonstrations on using a Kangen water machine to change the pH balance of water. Several months ago Carter’s tax man brought him two gallons

of water to try which was alkaline water. He said he and his wife were skeptical but began drinking the water themselves and have been satisfied with the results. Some of the examples Carter plans to share involve a test of the acidity differences between bottled water, city water and alkaline water. Carter claims the alkaline water helps the body heal more quickly and rid itself of free radicals. For more information, call 704219-9574. – article submitted

Friday, Nov. 11 4:30 - 7:00 Lennie (center) and other Bark-in-the-Park participants from last years fundraiser. (photo submitted)

Second annual Lennie’s Kids ‘Bark-in-the-Park’ Saturday, Nov. 5, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Harmon Field walking trails Lennie’s Kids will be raising money for the organization. Lennie’s Kids works with Foothills Humane Society and local vets to assist sick, injured and abandoned animals by helping provide medical care and placing them in foster and forever homes. A large percentage of these animals come into the shelter with high-level heartworms and are difficult to adopt out because of the extraordinary expense to treat this condition. Rather than euthanize these animals, Lennie Rizzo of Lennie’s Kids finds willing adopters or foster homes and then takes on much of the financial responsibility for their medical care himself, giving them a second chance. To participate in this fundraiser,

walkers (with or without their pets) are asked to get family, friends, co-workers and even strangers to sponsor them by donating money for Lennie’s Kids. There is no minimum donation required. Walkers can collect money from sponsors and bring it, along with their walking shoes, on Nov. 5 to take part in this event. Harmon Field’s trail is just over one mile, and participants can walk as much or as little as they desire, even looping multiple times if they wish. Flute and piano Dogs must be properly leashed. Company, church and school music for parties, groups are encouraged to take part. There willopenings, be concessions gallery for lunch with grilled hamburgweddings and and other ers and hotdogs, chips drinks available, with all proceeds going special occasions. to Lennie’s Kids.
