Only 50 cents

Ringing in the holidays by Samantha Hurst

The tree with all its lights went up in front of the clock tower in Tryon this weekend – a finishing touch as the Tryon Downtown Development Association, like many other community groups in our area, prepares for the Christmas season. Below is a compilation of the various town events planned for this holiday season.


The town of Columbus is abuzz with Christmas spirit including plans for a parade this weekend, Saturday, Dec. 3. The parade, sponsored by the Columbus Fire Department, begins at 4 p.m. Those participating in the parade should be in line on Park Street by 3:30 p.m. The route runs along Mills Street through downtown, ending in the Food Lion parking lot. The procession is expected to be filled with a variety of floats, performances and decorations. To enter (Continued on page 4)

The joint meeting of officials from Polk County, Columbus, Saluda and Tryon originally planned for Dec. 6 has been postponed. Officials say the meeting will most likely be held in February. The county and towns have been meeting occasionally to discuss creating a joint water system for Polk County.

Polk County has installed $1.8M of water lines since 2007 by Leah Justice

Polk County has gained approximately 17 miles of water lines since 2007 and has accrued no debt for its two systems. The Polk County Board of Commissioners met Monday, Nov. 21 and reviewed the history of the county’s

water systems with county engineer Dave Odom. Polk County began owning a water system when it purchased land for the middle school in Mill Spring and also bought the former Woodland Mills

well system and sewer plant. The county extended a line to the Hwy. 108/Hwy. 9 crossroads in Mill Spring in November 2007 for $384,822. The Mill Spring system is known as the Polk County Water Department and has a couple of small extensions, including one that serves residences off Silver Creek Road and another extension that serves the Polk County Agriculture Center. Polk County’s largest system is known as Polk County Water Department South and was created when Polk agreed to allow Broad River Water Authority (BRWA) to run a line through Green Creek to connect to Inman-Campobello Water District (ICWD) in South Carolina. In exchange for allowing the two systems to connect, Polk County owns the water line, is able to extend the line to Polk customers and is able to purchase up to (Continued on page 4)

600,000 gallons per day of water from the BRWA water source. ICWD maintains Polk County’s south system. “We really started extending water lines in 2007,” Odom said. “That’s when you first started expressing a vision of a system.” In 2008, Polk County began to make extensions from the main BRWA line that runs along Hwy. 9. Several extensions have been made from the line, including along Sandy Plains Road, Blackwood Road, Strawberry Road, Claude Gilbert Road, Landrum Road, Green Creek Drive, Melvin Hill and to Peniel Road (see map page 3). The county has spent $1,834,586 total for extensions and work on both its systems and is currently seeking bids to connect its Mill Spring department to the Town of Columbus water lines. That extension would connect all the water systems in the county, including the systems of Polk, Columbus, Saluda and Tryon. It would be a first step in creating a regional water system since Polk is connected to BRWA and ICWD and Saluda is connected to the Hendersonville water system. Polk has not financed any work for its water systems yet, paying for extensions out of the budget, through participation fees or from the county fund balance.

Landrum is all decked out and ready for its annual Christmas parade and stroll Thursday, Dec. 1 from 5-8:30 p.m. The parade route will start at O.P. Earle Elementary School and head through downtown, turning at Hare and Hound and on to the ball field. Foothills Amish Furniture will have a 10’x10’ Santa House for pictures with Santa.

Trade Ave. after the (Continued on page 5)

Polk also purchased Lake Adger for $1.6 million as a future water source and paid for it out of its fund balance. “You’ve not over-taxed the county’s finances,” Odom said, “and you’ve done it at a rate you’re not seeing large prices (for construction). I commend you for all that.” Odom said since the county ran a water line from the middle school to Hwy. 9, Polk has completed 10 projects, or about two water projects per year. When the BRWA and ICWD connection occurred, Polk gained about 8 miles of 20-inch water line and 600,000 gallons of water supply per day, Odom said. Odom said the county’s water system has provided water to residents who desperately needed it, with the system focusing on main roads. He mentioned residents in Green Creek who now get water from the county but were previously forced to haul water into their homes because their wells had gone dry. The county’s long-term plan is to build a water plant on countyowned property near the transfer station, but estimates are that won’t occur for several years. Polk is also budgeting funding every year to make repairs to the Lake Adger dam as well as attempting to get the watershed reclassified in order to use the lake as a water source. Polk will have to have at least 1,000 customers prior to using Lake Adger.

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper


Extend Small Business Saturday throughout season On Nov. 26 individuals across the country chose to forgo the big-box stores and shop small. People bought their Christmas trees and tree stands at local hardware stores, they stepped inside boutiques to purchase scarves and gloves to keep warm and they perused the shelves of antique stores and specialty shops for unique gift items for every person on their list. This year was the second annual Small Business Saturday, held on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year. The concept is centered on making a huge impact on the economy through making purchases at small mom-and-pop-type stores. This not only puts more money into the pockets of local merchants, allowing them to hire more employees, give back to the community and spend more money themselves in other shops, but it also raises the amount of sales tax generated locally in each city and county. This means more funds in community coffers for fire and police protection, more money to make improvements to water and sewer lines, more money to pay employees and more money to help school and civic organizations. So, instead of letting this effort fade out after one Saturday, why don’t we all make a pledge to buy from small businesses throughout this season and even after the holidays. We can only imagine the impact that could make! — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

West led the Queen of Hearts against South’s contract of 6 Spades. At first glance it looks like making your contract depends on the Diamond King being on side. However, you should never rely on a 50 percent chance of success when there are other options available. The key to avoiding a finesse, or at least delaying it until it’s a play of last resort, is to make the opponents lead the suit for you - from the wrong side. And the way to make this happen is to end play the right opponent - at the right time. With this in mind, declarer develops a plan to hopefully render the

opponents helpless. After winning the Ace of Hearts, he cashes the King of Hearts and then proceeds to enter the dummy twice with the Queen and Jack of trumps in order to ruff out the two remaining Hearts. At this point the defenders have been stripped of all their major suit cards. South then leads his singleton Club toward the dummy and plays the 10 if West follows low. After East wins with the King, he is end-played in the minor suits. If he leads a Diamond, declarer gets a free finesse and then discards his third diamond on the Ace of Clubs. If West leads a Club, declarer gets to

discard two Diamonds on dummies two winning Clubs. Note, it does East no good to rise with the Queen since declarer can set up the same end-play on West by winning the Ace and continuing with the Jack. If West play the

King declarer just discards one of his small Diamonds and then gets to discard his other small Diamond on the Club 10 Sometimes a winning finesse is made with a different kind of “finesse.”

Hoffman, Sherman ‘fulfilled by volunteering’ at Hospice “Nothing has fulfilled me in the same way that serving as a Hospice volunteer has,” said Coopers Gap resident Denise Hoffman. Hoffman and her friend and fellow church member, Mary Sherman, prayed together for all the sick in their church. “We had also prayed for at least a year for a more hands-on healing mission,” said Hoffman. “And when the Lord spoke to Mary and said: ‘Whatsoever you do for the least of my brethren you do for me,’ we realized that Hospice could be the perfect mission.” Hoffman and Sherman signed up for volunteer training and said they knew immediately they were right, especially in light of the fact that Hoffman had experienced the death of her mother under Hospice care. “I just felt the need to do it,” said Hoffman, “after Hospice was so good to Mom.” Since the two are neighbors on

the western edge of Polk County, they hit upon the concept of working as a team, driving into town together one day a week to serve as patient caregivers. Sharing the mission was a natural for the two, they said, since they both share a passion to give back. “Working together, we feed off each other and get uplifted spiritually,” said Hoffman. Hoffman and Sherman visit at White Oak of Tryon weekly, and occasionally at Hospice House of the Carolina Foothills in Landrum. They explain that many of those they visit are close to the end of their lives, so the two have experimented with different ways to interest the residents and cheer them. They have found an oldfashioned music box, a boom box, calendars with beautiful pictures and uplifting books cheer the residents the most. “And of course we sing to them,” they added almost in uni-

son. “It has turned into a blessing for us as much as for them,” said Hoffman. “We make it a day of friendship,

lunch and service,” said Sherman. And it is obvious to see it pleases them both. (Continued on page 19)

Quality Horse LaurelHurst observes Veterans Day withTop a new tradition The residents of LaurelHurst Retirement Community in Columbus recently held a Veterans Day program. Everyone stood for the pledge to the American flag, followed by singing “The StarSpangled Banner.” The LaurelHurst Singers performed many patriotic songs under the direction of Judy Sublett. Each branch of the armed forces was honored in song. The residents in the audience joined in the singing. Residents were honored with certificates in honor and in memory of lost loved ones for the service provided by them to America. A new tradition was started that will continue each Veterans Day and Memorial Day. A white table was set to represent those soldiers that are MIA (missing in action) or POW (prisoners of war). Residents heard a reading from the book “America’s White Table,” by Margot Theis Raven, which explained the symbolism of the white table. The white cloth honors soldiers’ hearts as they answer to the call of duty. Grains of salt and a lemon slice on the plate represent the tears shed as families wait for loved ones to return home. The black napkin is for the sorrow

Carisa Sellers, a sixth-grader at Polk County Middle School, plans to host a food drive for Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry Friday, Dec. 2 at the Pea Ridge Club House from noon-6 p.m. From 6-9 p.m. Sellers is also

hosting a Christmas party for peers with an admission cost of one donated food item. Sellers’ mother, Michelle, said their church, Father’s Vineyard in Spindale, encourages mission work internationally

and locally. So, when Carisa really wanted to have a Christmas party she decided to accomplish both goals by having a food drive as part of the party to show her peers that they could be a part of giving back.
