‘Is all this food free and can anyone come get it?’ TBOM seeks support for Feed-A-Kid, food pantry

Recently a group of elementary school children visited and toured Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (TBOM) to learn about the many programs TBOM offers to the

community. TBOM Client Services Coordinator Michelle Reedy tells of that visit and how a little girl’s raised hand melted hearts. “While learning about how Outreach helps families with food, a little girl raised her hand and asked, ‘Is all this food free and

can anyone come to get food?’ “I told her yes, it is free to those that need it. Once again the little girl raised her hand and stated in a small voice, ‘I don’t have any food in my home. My mom buys groceries, (Continued on page 4)

Saluda City Hall repairs advancing Brick almost complete, roof replacement next by Samantha Hurst

Gary Kitchen of Outlaw Masonry moved along with repairs to the brickwork encasing Saluda City Hall Tuesday, Nov. 15. “These bricks are more than 100 years old,” Kitchen said. “It’s important

to keep that historical look because not many buildings have done so. Most people just plaster over them when they start to let water in because they don’t realize they can be repaired.” Kitchen was about three-fourths of the way finished with the side wall of city hall, which is good news for the

city as leaders Nov. 14 approved an almost $10,000 contract with All Weather Roofing and Construction for a new roof for the building. Saluda Finance Director Ron Cole said the masonry refurbishing must be complete before moving onto the next phase. “I’ve been 17 years in service [with Saluda] and every governing body has tried to find a way to do this,” Cole said. “We’re glad to be making progress.” To move things along, the city set aside $10,000 in debt service and another $9,500 in budget appropriations for a total amount of $19,500. The critical work the city hopes to complete – refurbishing or replacing the roof, windows, brick, heating and air, tiles and metal facing on the front of the building – is expected to carry a price tag of about $135,000.

Gary Kitchen begins to fill in another section of brick with new mortar. Kitchen’s business, Outlaw Masonry, has been working on Saluda City Hall for about a week. Once the masonry work is complete, another company will come in to replace the roof. (photo by Samantha Hurst)

Part of this cost includes a decision to forgo a cheaper vinyl material window – $14,000 total – for an $18,000 version. Cole said if the city did not go this route it would be next to impossible to get historical

preservation grants because the windows would not provide a look similar to the windows seen in historical photos from the early 1900s. “Then that enhances our ability to go after some of those

historical preservation grants,” Cole said. “The public is very much in favor of keeping the building historically accurate and it will only help us to do so if we can pull in some of that grant money.”

Tryon Methodist honors veterans at special service by Samantha Hurst

The hour chimed and shortly thereafter members at Tryon United Methodist witnessed the presentation of flags as a special Veterans Day service opened. After a prayer and singing of “America the Beautiful,” church leaders guided members through a church service peppered with special recognition for all that veteran members of the church sacrificed during

service. “For those people of faith, their military service was and is a significant part of their lives. It’s an expression of their commitment to be good citizens as encouraged by scripture and is a way for some of standing up for the oppressed and those longing for freedom,” said. Rev. Phillip Hurst. “Their service and sacrifice implements a biblical purpose for governmental

authority by establishing and keeping order, and providing a corrective force against wrong in the world (Romans 13:1-7, 1 Peter 2:13-14).” Hurst said such a day of recognition is another way for the church to show appreciation and support for those who have safeguarded the well-being of the nation. Church member Nancy Hiley said there was a unique energy to the service. “Seeing some of our veterans wearing their decorations (medals) and even their uniforms,” Hiley said, was inspiring. “The impact of their quiet dignity and looking through the ‘Honor and Remember’ book, I felt the years disappear as I learned more about our members and their relatives.” This included COL. Carroll Strider, who came to church in his full green service uniform.

Member Pam Monterisi said veterans like Strider remind Christians of the true meaning behind patriotism. “They had a willingness to die for country because they know of Jesus’ willingness to die for our sins,” Monterisi said. “As Christians we are called to have a similar commitment to service as soldiers are committed to service.” Monterisi said in previous years such a focus on Veterans Day had not been part of worship, but this year veteranmembers like John Albree asked that the church take up honoring war heroes but do it in such a way as to not overshadow regular services. By commemorating the church’s “Honor and Remember” book, Albree said it will not only honor the past but be a living document as new members add their stories of service.

Mink to give sustainable agriculture workshop Nov. 17 Mountain BizWorks on Thursday, Nov.17 from 6-8 p.m. will host Lee Mink’s free Sustainable Agricultural Workshop at the Mill Spring Ag Center. The presentation will include real-life examples of challenges faced by the agricultural community, what to grow and how to grow it, marketing your business, as well as an opportunity for questions. Mink started farming in Alabama as a home gardener in the 80s, with the aim of providing healthy food for his family. Less-than-ideal soil forced him to learn how to manage soil in the best way… through experience. He is a great proponent of using cover crops, green manure and compost to improve soil health. As Mink learned more about big agribusiness and its detriments to the health of land and humans, he became an activist in the sustainable farming movement. Today, Mink owns Leap Farm in Polk County. This biodiverse, GMO-free, sustainable farm specializes in organic methods. Mink chooses to sell his produce within 25 miles of the farm. He insists that at its essence, sustainable farming is all about local service – local farms providing food to local residents and restaurants. Mink is also an expert in marketing and value added products. He sells both wholesale and retail and knows there is a home for everything he plants when he plants it. Mink is enthusiastic about educating and sharing his agricultural experience with people, especially young people. Additionally, this avid seed saver will create a passion in anyone that has an ear to hear about the awareness concerning the relationships among soil, plants, seeds, weather, the cycles of the year, and our roles as stewards that preserve this knowledge for

future generations. Mountain BizWorks (mountainbizworks.org) is a non-profit community development financial institution that provides lending, consulting, and training to small businesses in Western N.C. Its Community Agriculture Business Alliance (CABA) aims to build a more vibrant local economy in the region through agriculture. Bring a dish and enjoy the peer group environment and networking session.

major subdivisions can do to their neighborhood. This is a win-win result. Developers of major subdivisions are freed from the arbitrary seven-acre lot size restriction in our current subdivision ordinance and granted greater flexibility in laying out the subdivision’s arrangement, particularly in terms of clustering. The interests of neighboring landowners will now be taken into account, particularly in terms of adverse impacts on groundwater supplies and other environmental concerns. They will become participants in the subdivision review process. The Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) Committee and the planning board, both of which unanimously approved the proposed subdivision ordinance, should be commended for their efforts in producing an innovative and balanced approach to major subdivision development in Polk County. This subdivision ordinance is first part of the culmination of the more than 10 years of work by many Polk County citizens, and

Please plan to attend the public hearing at 5 p.m. on Nov. 21, in the commissioners meeting room in the Womack Building in Columbus. Please arrive early so you can sign up to speak in favor of this subdivision ordinance. Comments need not be lengthy. In fact, they can be no longer than three minutes. But your support is very important, especially because opponents of the ordinance are spreading falsehoods about it to frighten citizens so that they will fight against it.

Letter to the Editor

Power of prayer brings pastor back

To the Editor: On Saturday, Oct. 22, we got an early morning call. Our pastor at Grassy Knob Fellowshipo Church had had a massive heart attack. We had a lot of phone calls to make to request prayers, and then we took off for Memorial Mission Hospital. Seeing our pastor as we did was so very frightening. We thought the Lord was calling him home, and he is worthy of that call. We thought we would be without our pastor. After praying over him in intensive care, we headed home. We had more phone calls to make making sure everyone knew the importance of continuing to pray. “Our pastor is in critical condition. With God, all things are possible,” we said. On Sunday, Oct. 23, as we all gathered at our sweet little church, we prayed; holding hands, we prayed. We sang and lot of testimo-

ny was given about how our pastor has helped us and many others. We all prayed again and again. As we were praying, our pastor was taken off the respirator, breathing on his own – and we prayed. On Monday, Oct. 24, the doctor began talking about moving our pastor to a regular room – and we prayed. On Tuesday, Oct. 24, our pastor was moved out of intensive care to a regular room – and we prayed. On Wednesday, Oct. 26, we, the church, gathered at our place of worship for a praise God and worship service, and our pastor waslked in, straight out of the hospital, and joined us in that praise and worship service. The Lord led us – and we prayed. October was pastor appreciation month. Jerry Jackson, we love you and appreciate how you teach us and all you do for us and the true love you show for us. We thank the Lord for giving you back to us. –– Julie Fike, Grassy Knob Fellowship Church

Would you believe that without looking at the defenders hands it’s possible to play the suit to guarantee at least three Diamond tricks against any distribution? Proper technique dictates that declarer first cashes the Ace in his hand. If either defender shows out, the play of the suit becomes an open book. Assuming both defenders follow suit, declarer leads a small Diamond toward dummy. If West follows suit, dummy simply covers whatever card West plays. This guarantees three Diamond tricks. If East were to win this trick, it would mean that the suit broke 3-2 and you are guaranteed three Diamond tricks. If East shows


NORTH } A85 { A65 [ K932 ] 943

Bridge Players Corner

West leads the Queen of Spades against 3 NT. As always, before good declarers play to the first trick they develop a plan. The first thing they do is count winners. As you can see, declarer has two sure winners in each suit, for a total of 8. In addition, he has the potential to take one or two more tricks in the Diamond suit, depending on the distribution and location of key cards. Looking at all four hands it should be obvious on how to play the Diamond suit. Since you only need one more Diamond trick to make your contract you should be looking at playing your existing suit situation to make three tricks.


WEST } QJ1062 { J7 [ Q1087 ] 72

SOUTH } K97 { K43 [ AJ58 ] AK8

out, as is the case in this hand, declarer either has his third trick if he wins with the 9 or if he is forced to with the King and he just continues playing the suit to set up his last Diamond. If West had showed out on the second

EAST } 43 { Q10982 [ 6 ] QJ1065

round, declarer would win with King and lead from the board toward his hand to establish his Jack. Thus, nothing can prevent declarer from getting his ninth trick if he plays the suit correctly.

The service was held at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Md. Coe, a volunteer firefighter and safety officer with the Shoreham, Vt., Fire Department, lost his life in the line of duty. He was assisting a disabled motorist on an icy road on Dec. 27, 2009. Coe’s professionalism and kindness while responding to calls was noted in the tribute, as were his work ethic, kind heart and bravery. Fellow firefighters from Shoreham traveled to Maryland to join the ranks of the honor guard.
