Landrum High School students are looking to collect 4,000 food items as part of a District One food drive. The last day for the students to collect food is Dec. 7.

John Bear Streat once gave a dog the shirt off his back. He also helped take care of a hospice patient from time to time and donned a Santa costume each year for St. Luke’s Hospital where his wife, Leslie Burgess works. “You don’t expect that from

a big leathery biker,” said Burgess. “But that’s just the kind of man Bear was.” Streat passed away Wednesday, Nov. 30 from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident after leaving the Polk County Toy Run Saturday, Nov. 26. Just 10 minutes before the

accident, Streat had dropped his wife off and continued on with other bikers. Burgess said officers investigating the wreck haven’t been able to determine a cause, while doctors said Bear showed no signs of any medical condition that could have made

The Polk County Emergency Ser vices (EMS) has a new ambulance that is equipped with four wheel drive. The county purchased the new chassis on Nov. 18 for $79,820. Polk County is re-using a box for the new chassis. This is the first ambulance in the county to have four wheel drive capabilities.

him lose control of the bike that day. Regardless of why it happened, Burgess said her husband died doing what he loved. He died “in the saddle.” A tough man by the look of things, the 64-year-old tattoo artist was known to be a kind soul through and through. The day before Thanksgiving, Bear walked into St. Luke’s Hospital lugging a deep fried turkey for all the staff to enjoy. In fact, Burgess said all she had to do was mention the hospital needed something and he was there. St. Luke’s spokesperson Kathy Woodham said words could not express the loss staff members feel. “As a small hospital, we are like family, so this news has been pretty tough for us. Bear was a generous, caring man with a really big heart. I jbtrees - page 10

was lucky to get to know him several years ago - I needed a Santa for the parade, so he and Leslie both volunteered to help me out! He came with his truck, helped load and decorate a hospital gurney, donned a Santa suit and had a blast in that parade. Ever since, he was the one I called on to be our Santa.” The hospital had purchased Bear a new Santa suit and he was even growing out his beard so it would feel real when the kids tugged on it, Burgess said. Oh, and the story about giving a dog the shirt off his back is no tall tale. Burgess said Bear showed up at her house four hours late for a date early on in their relationship. Though most women might have been furious, Burgess heard him out long enough to learn that he stopped when he saw a dog that had been hit by a car. He wrapped the dog in his shirt and rushed it to a vet. (Continued on page 5)

Bear even stayed and petted the dog while the vet put it to sleep. “I thought, ‘That’s the man for me,’” Burgess said. Streat, a tattoo shop owner from New Orleans, became a “fully giving transplant,” Burgess said, after the two married in 2000. It wasn’t long before he made friends with a few other bikers and began riding in the annual Polk County Toy Run. While Streat may have rode in his last toy run Saturday, Nov. 26, winding his way through the mountains he had come to call home, it won’t likely be the last one he has an affect on. Burgess said she heard a particularly large number of teddy bears were collected in Bear’s honor at the Smoky Mountain Toy Run in Buncombe County Dec. 3. “I’m just amazed by the man still today,” Burgess said. “Just amazed.”

Raking leaves; another meaningful Grassroots experience Ah the good ‘ol days. When people used to perform all sorts of heavy work with their bare hands, without the use of a machine or tool. Kids used to walk 5 miles to school each way in the rain, sleet or snow; they used to do it uphill both ways mind you. If you had to go somewhere you either walked or rode your trusty steed, with no use of fossil fuels to burn. You had to heat your house with a stove or fireplace, and cool off in the creek or with a block of ice. The trustworthy hand fan also worked wonders for those old timers. As far as leaves go in the fall, get this - people used to literally rake them; by hand.With a real rake! No, seriously.

An older and wiser friend of mine recently told me that in most Native American languages, there is no word for time. Interesting. No word for time? Time must not have been real important to them. It was about the experience. If there was no word for time in our modern English language, things like leaf blowers, microwaves, fast food, speed limit and dishwashers may have never been invented. But thank the Lord above for dishwashers. Time may not have been added to our vernacular if the need to track it wasn’t ever there. We’ve all grown up with the need to want a leaf blower to ease our labors - I sure have. Picking up a rake helps to scrape up the time I feel is crouching at my door sometimes, and doing it with my son reminds me it’s not so bad to ignore the need for speed Chris Jakubowicz lives in Tryon with his wife and children.

THe aTTaCk on Pearl Harbor Pearl Harbor is a United States Naval Base located on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. It has been home to the U.S. Pacific fleet since the 1940’s. On December 7, 1941, at 7:55 a.m., a group of 183 Japanese planes and several midget submarines attacked the fleet at Pearl Harbor. Because it was a Sunday morning, many soldiers were off duty and on “shore leave.” Officers in the radar tower mistook the enemy aircraft for a squadron of U.S. planes due back from California, making the attack a complete surprise. One hour later, another group of 168 fighters and bombers attacked. The Japanese goal was to disable the American fleet and render them incapable of participating in World War II. The damages to the ships and aircraft were terrible. The USS Arizona sank and remains on the ocean floor as a monument. The Battleship USS Oklahoma never sailed again; many more ships were badly damaged but eventually repaired. At the U.S. airfields, 188 planes were destroyed, and many others were damaged. On December 8, Congress declared war on Japan and entered into the war as part of the Allied Forces. Although the U.S. fleet was badly damaged, it was not destroyed. Some U.S. aircraft carriers had not been at port the morning of the attack; they were out at sea for training exercises. This fact changed the course of the war and allowed the Allied Powers to eventually win the war. Today, the United States and Japan are strong allies.

LHS Cardinals down Polk Wolverines 51 - 41 by Joey Millwood

It felt like the third round of the playoffs in Columbus on Friday night when the Landrum boys’ basketball team stepped on the court against Polk County. For Landrum it was the first game of the season. For Polk, the Wolverines had already been battle tested. For both, the energy was ripe. The game seeped with the emotion that flows from an intense rivalry. Landrum, led by Daniel Bridges, jumped out to an early lead. Bridges, a newcomer to the Cardinals basketball team, stepped right into the fire and emerged an offensive threat, en route to a 5141 victory. “It was exciting,” Bridges said. “Once I got into a rhythm, I felt a lot better about the game.” Bridges led all scorers with 15 points. Cole McDowell added 9 points, while Mark Wilson scored 8 and Alex Bryant added 7. For Polk, it was a gutsy performance. The Wolverines limped into the season with two key players hurt during football season – Jay Sutton and Deion Twitty. Twitty, despite a leg injury,

is braced up and is inspiring his team. The senior scored five points on Friday, but despite that, the Cardinals pulled away. “We always know it’s going to

be close up here,” Cardinal coach Lyn Smith said. Sam Vining’s led the Wolverines with 12 points. Anthony Carson and Joel Booker each

added 10. “The effort was unreal,” Polk coach Josh McEntire said. “I was proud of how hard they fought. We are getting after people.”

Landrum, Polk junior varsity teams split wins in rivalry match by William Trakas

Both the Wolverine and Cardinal JV basketball teams were looking to gain early season momentum by upending their archrivals on the court Friday, Dec. 2. The Lady Wolverines’ squad did just that. As the game got underway the Wolverines took a big early lead. Sophomore guard Lyric Flood was pulled down from the varsity ranks just prior to game time. Coach Michelle Fagan’s decision proved to be a smart one as Flood led the team

with 12 points. “We got a lot of production from Lyric,” coach Fagan said after the game. “We just played awesome.” Defense proved to be a bright spot for the team. Shut down defensive play from Flood and sophomore Shea Wheeler forced eight Landrum turnovers in the opening period, leading to multiple fast break opportunities and a big first quarter lead for the Wolverines. Landrum struggled even more

in the fourth as the Lady Wolverines added 14 points while giving up a goose egg. Polk girls won easily, 45-11. Leading the limited scoring for Landrum was Taylor Hedgepath and Haley Turley, both with 3 points each. JV men’s basketball When the men took the court, Landrum took the upper hand. Landrum opened the first quarter on a 12-0 run and never looked back, as Cardinal Jonah Corn grabbed 21 points and Trevor

Walker, 20. The Wolverines meanwhile struggled to get anything going offensively and this proved deadly against a three-point assault from the Cardinals in the first half. Landrum led 39-17 after two quarters. The second half proved to be a small confidence builder for the Brian Taylor coached Wolverines. An improved defense from Polk in the third quarter only allowed (Continued on page 11)

Lady Wolverines dominate in 66-38 win over Landrum by Joey Millwood

The Polk County girls basketball team put the press on against Landrum on Friday night and never let up en route to a 66-38 win. The Lady Wolverines, led by Jamie Hrobak and Savannah Deaver, took charge before the half and never looked back. The Lady Wolverines used an aggressive press against the Landrum guards, but also utilized a half court setting to allow Hrobak to control the ball game inside. The senior post player scored 12 points and grabbed 11 boards. Hrobak scored two baskets in the paint from the get go to help Polk jump out to a 10-3 lead. Deaver put up 16 points to lead the overall scoring. The aggressive press resulted in three turnovers just before the half for Polk County. Those three turnovers led to three quick baskets by Cassidy Mazzilli. Mazilli was the third Lady Wolverine in double-digits with 11 points. Polk closed the half with a 41-21 lead after outscoring Landrum 14-6 in the final four minutes. They picked up right where they left off in the third quarter, outscoring Landrum 14-7. “I felt like we came out real aggressive,” Polk coach Craig Culbreth said. “We worked a lot this week with picking up our intensity.” For the Cardinals, it was a disappointing start to the season, but

it showed a lot for new head coach Deon Brice. It was a gut check in a hostile environment. The Lady Cardinals couldn’t overcome some early mistakes. “We’re a young team,” Brice said. We made some silly mistakes early. We were fighting from then to climb back out.” Lauren Pitts led the way for Landrum with 9 points. Skylar Henderson scored 8 points and Taylor Jenkins added 6 points. points in the third. Despite solid production from sophomore Will Ballard and freshman Jordan Smith in the final period, the 50-27 third quarter deficit proved to be too much to overcome.

Polk library’s ‘Day of the Dead’ event celebrates culture Area families and their Hispanic neighbors celebrated “Dia de los Muertos,” or “Day of the Dead,” together recently at the Polk County Public Library. Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican celebration to honor and remember those who have departed. Special foods are prepared and streets and cemeteries are filled with decorations. It is believed that the spirits of the dead visit their families on Oct. 31 and leave on Nov. 2.

“Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican celebration to honor and remember those who have departed. ” Families make altars and place special cakes, candles, incense and marigolds on them. Most importantly, a photo of the deceased loved one is placed on the altar. With the help of Saluda resident Betsy Smith, a Spanish teacher who spent a great deal of time in Mexico, the library was able to recreate an authentic Day of the Dead celebration. The children’s area was decorated with punched paper, skulls and skeletons and many flowers. An altar was erected with photos, candles and more brightly colored flowers. Stories in both English and Spanish were shared and children learned how to make their own colorful paper flowers. Participants enjoyed a feast of Mexican food, including tamales, tacos and burritos, and finally a pan de muertos – a cake baked in the shape of a skull – with Mexican hot chocolate. - article submitted by Joy Sharp
