Telemedicine project could improve access to care by Samantha Hurst

Saluda Medical Center (SMC) supporters and staff are looking to technology to more closely connect underinsured patients with doctors. The telemedicine project could connect individuals with specialty

doctors without the need to schedule new appointments – the entire consultation could be conducted via the Internet. All the center needs are laptops and web cameras. “It’s the wave of the future,” said SMC Administrator Amy Co-

Tryon moves on four dilapidated homes in eastside by Leah Justice

The Town of Tryon now has its sites on cleaning up four dilapidated structures in the eastside neighborhood. During Tryon Town Council’s Sept. 27 meeting, fire chief and code enforcer Joey Davis gave an update on four structures in the process of either making property owners repair or the town demolishing. Davis also said there are six other parcels the town has identified as not meeting minimum housing code. The structures currently in violation of the town’s Chapter 152 housing code are 123 Cleveland Street, a house on Shepherd Street with an unknown address and 351 and 366 East Howard Street. All property owners have been sent findings of fact and were given until Jan. 13 to bring the structures into compliance.

Town council can make a decision after Jan. 13 whether or not to approve ordinances to demolish any structures. Councilman Roy Miller has recently expressed concern over several structures, particularly in the Eastside Neighborhood that are dilapidated and are decreasing nearby property values. Miller has said he feels like a mobile home on Rippy Road was demolished quickly after residents expressed concern and some of the Eastside structures have been on the town’s list for a decade. Tryon Mayor Alan Peoples said at the September council meeting that he had the same impression as Miller regarding the Rippy Road mobile home at first. Part of the problem with the Eastside houses is the property owners do not live in the area, some have never lived in the area, town officials said. Town attorney Bailey Nager

said the Rippy Road structure went through the same 90-day process that any structure has to go through before the town can approve an ordinance to demolish. Once an ordinance is approved, the demolition process can move quickly, Nager said.

Miller suggested in the process that the town make the property owners at least board up some of the structures due to the dangers. Town council is scheduled to hear an update on the four structures during its Oct. 18 meeting.

St. Petersburg, FL. - Talk about defying getting older; Rick A. Weil, 53, of Largo, Florida has not only held the world record weightlifting bench press of 556 lbs. (unassisted at 181 lbs.) for over 25 years, but is surprisingly a marathon runner as well. Weil says “Running a marathon is fun—a ridiculous stunt.” To solve big pain problems, Weil uses PainMed™ gel on sore muscles. Weil enthusiastically states that it works right away on a stubbornly sore back. PainMed™ is so unique that it holds several U.S. & International patents. Doctor recommended PainMed™ acts quickly and is long lasting. This clear homeopathic gel dries virtually odor free, is stain free, grease free & does not burn! Users cite amazing relief from the temporary pains of arthritis, sports injuries, joint pain and backache. The company offers a money back guarantee. Weil’s father, who is 80, competes nationally in handball tournaments and gets quick shoulder arthritis pain relief from PainMed™ as well.

to show people what we have to offer.” The festival will in fact feature more than 40 regional artisans. Grace Metcalf of Mill Spring will be one of several first-time exhibitors. The 88-year-old has sewn most of her adult life but began creating crazy quilt wall hangings eight years ago. Another featured artist will be Petey Wingo of the Tryon Doll Makers. Visitors at the event will see artists making pottery, lapidary, jewelry, glass beads, woodturning and weaving, as well as metalworking in the forge throughout both days. Some demonstrators plan to invite guests the chance to try their hand at the craft. McIntyre said TAC staff and volunteers hope people attending the festival will become inspired to delve into the arts themselves. During each demonstration there will be a sign-up sheet for pro-

spective students. TAC asks that anyone interested in learning a particular art form or craft leave their name, contact and information about when they would be available to participate in such a course. “We’re trying to develop new programs to reach more of an audience,” McIntyre said. “We are working to develop programs for homeschool kids and an afterschool program, as well as our programs on weekends and at nights to reach people who work.” The information gathered during the demonstrations will allow TAC to connect with those interested once new programs become available. This free two-day public event will be held rain or shine. All donations collected over the weekend will go to support the mission of Tryon Arts and Crafts School. The festival is made possible by support from the North Carolina Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Cultural Resources.

McFarlands honored for 100 years


Hospice of the Carolina Foothills would like to thank the following people and businesses for their gracious and generous donations to “Saddle Up For Hospice”. The event took place at Stone Soup in Landrum on October 6th. We are also grateful to those who attended and supported this event.

to link patients that come into SMC with specialty care needs. “This saves the patient more time off work, fuel costs and more,” Copeland said. “That’s incredibly important for many of our patients who wouldn’t always make it to those additional appointments.” The idea to pursue this project all came about, Copeland said, when SMC supporter Don Mintz met a man named Ed Spencer who was carrying out a similar program in South Carolina. There doctors have provided 8,000 consultations in 30 months. “It’s been very successful nationally and we’ve gone statewide here in South Carolina,” Spencer said. “What we’re trying to do is increase access to good medical care. This works especially well in treatment of cardiac problems, as well as issues resulting from diabetes in elderly and small children.” Working with an individual doctor you are required to contract with that doctor, which can get pricey, Spencer said. But a feeder clinic or referring clinic to a hospital is provided consultations or assessments free of charge. “This saves the emergency department money, provides Copeland and her staff ready access to medical expertise and offers the patient excellent medical care,” Spencer said.

Phase one of the program would put three video units into place – one at SMC, one at Foothills Medical Clinic and one at Pardee Hospital, the first partnering hospital. In phase two, Spencer said organizers are looking at three more clinics working with Pardee and perhaps St. Luke’s Hospital. Spencer said the group would like to have three phases with up to 12 medical centers and three hospitals. Saluda Medical Center plans to host an event known as “The Saluda Essence of Fall” Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m. to help raise funds. This “tablescape” event offers a chance for those interested to show off their decorating skills by purchasing a table to decorate with fall themes. Participants are invited to bring their own place settings, plus a centerpiece to be auctioned off. Prizes will be given for the best decorated tables. Those hosting a table will be allotted specific decorating times. An additional table setting donated by Pier 1 Imports of Hendersonville will also be auctioned. Anyone interested in attending the fundraising event can call Kathie Mixon at 828-749-3651 or Linda Whitaker at 828-749-5121 to purchase a table and get details. A fundraising event for the general operation of the medical center will be held Friday, Oct. 28. The fourth-annual Masquerade Ball will be held at 6:30 p.m. with Jack Roper performing his magic act, costume contest and karaoke.

Polk County’s unemployment rate rose .4 percent in August, from 7.8 percent in July to 8.2 percent in August, according to the latest figures from the North Carolina Employment Security Commission (ESC). Statewide, the unemployment picture was mixed in August. The rate increased in 47 of North Carolina’s 100 counties, decreased in 32 and remained the same in 21. “Just over half of North Carolina’s 100 counties stayed the same or decreased,” said ESC Chairman Lynn R. Holmes. “Looking at this month’s data, it’s clear we must remain focused on assisting our customers with many services to help them find work in this static economy.” Currituck County had the lowest rate at 4.5 percent, followed by Hyde at 6.8 percent, Orange at 7.4 percent, Dare at 7.5 percent and then Chatham at 7.6 percent. Scotland County had the state’s highest unemployment rate at 17.6 percent, down 0.1 percent from July. Edgecombe County had the second highest rate at 15.1 percent, down 1.2 percent from July. Polk County’s August rate reflected a .2-percent increase from last August, when Polk’s rate was 8.0 percent. Henderson County also rose .4 percent in August, from 7.6 percent to 8.0 percent. Rutherford County, however, improved .1 percent, dropping from 14.9 to 14.8 percent. Statewide, North Carolina’s August unemployment rate (not seasonally adjusted) stayed the same as in July at 10.4 percent. The state’s rate was 1.3 percent higher than the national rate in August, which was 9.1 percent.

The Rocky Mount metropolitan area had the highest unemployment rate in August at 13.6 percent. The Durham/Chapel Hill area had the lowest rate at 8.2 percent, which increased 0.2 of a percentage point from the previous month. Asheville followed at 8.4 percent. Polk County had a labor force of 9,170 in August, of whom 751 were on the unemployment rolls. South Carolina’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate increased from 10.9 percent in July to 11.1 percent in August. The state’s labor force increased for the fourth consecutive month, with the total labor force level estimated at 2,163,803. There were 1,924,623 employed persons in August, down slightly from the previous month. Spartanburg County’s jobless rate bucked the statewide trend, dropping from 11.6 percent in July to 11.3 percent in August. The rate in Greenville County stayed the same as in July at 9.0, down .5 percent from the 9.5 rate in August 2010.

Recognize our responsibility to spay and neuter pets Puppy breath. While it conjures up cuddly images of fuzzy litters of animals, volunteer and staff at the Foothills Humane Society wish they had cause to smell less of it. The humane society has dealt with an influx of animals - 55 dogs and 75 cats to be exact - filling every extra space in the shelter. FHS found some relief with an emergency adopt-a-thon this past Sunday, Oct. 9, placing 19 dogs and nine cats in forever homes. But this piece isn’t meant to tout the value of adopting from the humane society or to praise the efforts of volunteers working to save these animals from a fate of living as strays (although that is much appreciated). This article is intended to point out the ugly truth of the matter; pet owners are not being responsible. They are instead allowing their animals to breed litter after litter of kittens and puppies that become stray, dumped on the side of the road or surrendered to the humane society. The burden of overpopulation should be on pet owners, not on the community of animal lovers already struggling to care for so many forsaken animals. We, as pet owners, are responsible for the increasing pet population in our community and its time we owned up to it. Pet owners often claim cost as a roadblock to having their animals spayed or neutered. The humane society and countless vets on occasion offer low-cost or even FREE procedures. On top of that the humane society regularly works to trap feral cats in order to fix them. Other areas of the country have recognized the dilemma of high populations of stray animals. Many cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas, as well as areas in the Northeast have gone as far as implementing laws requiring pet owners to have their pets spayed or neutered unless they are licensed breeders. While we’re not advocating a mandatory law such as those, we are advocating pet owners being proactive and responsible. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

Polk football back on top, upending Avery in barnburner by Daniel Hecht

In the sort of wild and woolly shootout one would expect between two highly prolific offenses, the Polk County Wolverines upended the Avery Vikings Friday night, 51-31. The game, played in front of a large homecoming crowd in Newland, was a thoroughly entertaining affair that featured nine lead changes and a combined 11 touchdowns. Polk County marked first, drilling a field goal from 25 yards out to put the Wolverines up by three. For the remainder of the first half, the teams traded touchdowns and lead changes. The battle reached a crescendo in the waning moments of the first half as Polk scored on a screen pass to Cary Littlejohn to go up by 17-14 with just 14 seconds left. Polk lost that lead 11 seconds later, however, as Avery scored on the final play of the half on a touchdown pass by Alex Villanueva that sent the stunned Wolverines into the visitor’s locker room trailing 21-17. The extended homecoming halftime gave head coach Bruce Ollis’ team ample time to stew over the situation. “I’ll say this – for the first time in this season, I felt like our players felt a sense of urgency going into the second half,” said Ollis. The teams continued to trade body blows, ending the third quarter deadlocked at 31 apiece, but from then on, it was all Polk County, as the Wolverines reeled off 20 unanswered points to notch the key conference victory. Player of the Week: #14 Joel Booker

“I felt like, particularly in the fourth quarter, we developed what I like to call a ‘competitive maturity,’” said Ollis. QB Alec Philpott completed seven passes for 245 yards and rushed for 76 more, including a 42-yard TD run. Cary Littlejohn ran 15 times for 109 yards and four TDs, and added a 36-yard TD reception as well. Tyler Ridings added a 25-yard rushing TD, and Joel Booker, who was sidelined against Mitchell with an ankle injury, roared back with a vengeance, notching seven catches for 209 yards and earning glowing praise from Ollis.

“Joel showed leadership on and off the field – he was verbal, and he played like a champion,” Ollis said. With the victory, the Wolverines improve to 6-2 overall, and are now 3-1 in conference competition, a record good enough to propel the team back into first place in the Western Highlands Conference. Polk has quite a bit of company at the top, however, as a Mitchell victory over previously unbeaten Hendersonville, coupled with an Owen win over Madison, has created an interesting four-way deadlock at the top of the heap in the WHC.

“It’s pretty amazing,” remarked Ollis. “Having four teams in the conference with 3-1 records – I don’t know that it has ever been knotted this tight with just three games to play, so everybody’s still alive.” This Friday, the Wolverines return home to the Little Big House to lock horns with the winless Gryphons of Thomas Jefferson, as Polk celebrates its homecoming week with a full slate of events beginning with the Wolverine festival.

Cardinals dominate St. Joseph’s by Joey Millwood

The Landrum football season continued in dominant fashion on Friday night. The Cardinals are a fast moving train and don’t seem to be slowing down as they continue down the region road. Landrum beat St. Joseph’s 3317 to remain unbeaten in region play. The Cardinals did most of their damage on the ground. Cole McDowell ran for 79 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Brandon Cannon ran for 129 yards and passed for 129 yards. He threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to Peyton McCarter in the second quarter for Landrum’s first score. He had

a run of 31 yards and 13 yards. McCarter finished with 41 yards receiving. Aaron Bryant ran for 33 yards and a touchdown. Jacob Lindsey had 27 yards receiving and Clark Edmonds had 31 yards receiving. St. Joseph’s hung tough until the fourth quarter. In the fourth, the Cardinals exploded for 20 points t o p u t t h e g a m e a w a y. The Cardinals will now turn their attention to Southside Christian this Friday night. A win over Southside Christian and Blacksburg in the next two weeks will set up a region showdown with Christ Church on Oct. 28.

PCHS tennis continues win streak Polk County tennis knocked out Thomas Jefferson Oct. 6 in what Coach Joel Picher said was an upset win over the Gryphons. “The score (9-0) doesn’t reflect it, but this was a very close match,” Picher said. “For a while, singles was split 3-3 regarding leads, but the girls pulled it out for us. Natalie Hilbig, with her maturity and smart playing, secured a win that was an upset for Thomas Jefferson’s #1.

Erwins entertain at FENCE, Oct. 16 Joe and Kathleen Erwin return to FENCE on Sunday, Oct. 16 at 4 p.m. for this month’s FENCE Family Concert. The Erwins have been frequent and popular performers on FENCE’s Family Concert series and will once again offer a program of selections for piano and violin. Included in the repertoire will be works by Bach, Kreisler, Grieg and Chopin. The Erwins met and married while students at the Julliard School in New York and moved

to Tryon in 1976. Joe was choir director at the Tryon Presbyterian Church for thirty years and conducted concerts for the Community Chorus. He and Kathleen continue to perform together at numerous community events. FENCE Family Concerts are offered free of charge with the support of the Kirvy Kirby Endowment Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation. - article submitted by Norman Powers SINCE 1995

Derby Dash 5k and Fun Walk recap Tues . - Sat. 10-5

The first Derby Dash 5K and Fun Walk was hosted at Derbyshire on Saturday, Sept. 17. The 5K and fun walk had over 120 participants and over 200 people gathered for the Derby Dash breakfast. The Derby Dash 5K and Fun Walk was a fundraiser to benefit the Foothills Humane Society (FHS) and Go Girls, a running club for fourth and fifth grade girls at Polk Central Elementary. Over twenty members of Go Girls participated in a one-mile run. The FHS brought along several dogs that were available for adoption. The 5K race course took runners around the private lake at Derbyshire and onto the equestrian trails in the community. Participants took part in a postrace breakfast provided by Good Life Catering of Greenville, S.C. The overall male winner of the Derby Dash was 30-year-old Curtis Rowe of Columbus, who finished with a time of 19:02.28. Amanda Brodie, 24, of Greenville, S.C., was the overall female winner with a time of 30:11.13. Full results can be found on the race website, www.DerbyDash5K.com. The Derby Dash 5K and Fun Walk raised $1,000 for the FHS and Go Girls. Each group received a check for $500 to use for

whatever purposes they choose. Derbyshire also donated a pink water bottle, with the Go Girls logo on it, for each member of the running club. A coach for Go Girls said that they will first be using their money to provide running shoes for those members who do not own a pair. The remainder of the money will be used for race entry fees and for other items for the girls as needed. One of the dogs who had attended the event with the FHS was adopted at the Dash. Porsche has now found a new home with the race director’s sister, Sara Dennis of Greenville, S.C. Derbyshire officials said they are looking forward to hosting the Derby Dash 5K and Fun Walk again next September. Brian Carroll, the managing partner for the equestrian themed community, says, “We hope to continue to grow the Derby Dash with even more sponsors, race participants and breakfast guests next year and have set a goal to donate at least twice as much money to the FHS and Go Girls.” Any questions regarding the Derby Dash 5K and Fun Walk can be sent to the race director, Jennifer Dennis, at info@DerbyDash5K.com. - article submitted by Jennifer Dennis

Registration begins for second annual Tot Trot This year’s Tot Trot is gearing up to motivate kids and families to get moving in a healthy direction. The second annual Tot Trot, sponsored by Tuesday School, will be held on Oct. 29 at the Red Fox Country Club beginning at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday School is a nonprofit parent cooperative preschool located in Tryon and is committed to encouraging kids to lead a healthy lifestyle beginning at a young age. While the two, three and four year-old students are learning reading and science skills, gaining friendships and nurturing their creativity, they are also being taught about the importance of good health. Snack times at Tuesday School are an example of this focus, as the kids often munch on fresh fruit and veggies, whole grain snacks and cheese or yogurt. Instead of soda or high sugar beverages, parents are encouraged to bring fruit juice or water to share with their child’s class. And when it comes to exercise, Ms. Beverly Wilson’s four year-old class is on the right track - literally. The kids are running straight toward a healthy lifestyle, with a goal for each child to run ten miles this school year. Keeping track of how much they run during each session is not just a fun activity, but also gives the kids a sense of accomplishment when they meet their goals. Two-year olds, three-year olds, teachers, parents, family and friends of the school are all invited to take part in this year’s Tot Trot, an annual fundraiser. A 5K race will begin at 8:30 a.m., followed by a 1-mile “Fun Run/ Walk.” Registration begins at 7 a.m. the day of the race, or you may register online at www. strictlyrunning.com. Anyone who registers for the 5K before October 12 will receive a free commemorative t-shirt.

The kids at Tuesday School invite the public and leashed pets to join them to promote a healthy lifestyle. Costumes are not only welcome, but encour-

aged for this Halloween weekend event. As the children are learning in school, life is about making good choices and it’s good to get moving.

Betsy Milstein will be returning back to England to live with her family. (photo submitted)

Garden tea party for Milstein A Garden Tea Party, sponsored by Synergy in Action, honoring Betsy Milstein was held Tuesday, Aug. 23 at the home of Mary Summerford of Tryon. After gracing the community with her smile and lively step for forty years, Milstein is returning to her native England to enjoy life with her son and daughter, their spouses and her four grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. Milstein spent the first 15 years of her life in England. In 1939, when World War II broke out, her father evacuated Milstein, her brother and their mother to live in Landrum with her grandparents, Dr. Edward Earle Bomar and Nannie Earle Landrum, daughter of Baptist minister Rev. John Gill Landrum, for whom the town of Landrum was named in 1880. In 1941, while attending Converse College, she met Malcom Milstein, a former neighbor and officer in the British Royal Navy, who had come to New York for repairs on his torpedo ship. They were married in Washington, D.C. on Christmas Eve of the same year. In 1942, she returned to England where she lived until the death of her husband in 1972.

Following his death, she returned to Landrum to care for her ailing mother, Libby Gilmore. After the passing of her mother, Milstein decided to make Landrum her home. Milstein is well-known as a Christian woman who is committed to prayer. She has been seen many, many days walking the streets of Landrum praying the blessings of God over its government, churches, schools and businesses. Synergy in Action, a local agency that provides residential services for developmentally disabled children and adults as well as for adults with mental health diagnoses, is one of the many local businesses that has been affected by Milstein’s prayer life. Kathy Wofford Romich, executive administrator of Synergy in Action, says that she “greatly appreciates Milstein’s support for the clients and staff over the years. Although she will be many miles away, we know she will continue to affect our lives because, as Milstein says, ‘There is no distance in prayer, dahling.’” - article submitted by Kathy Romich
