A tractor-trailer ran into a Columbus police car and a passenger van early Monday, Dec. 5 along I-26. Around 2:42 a.m., the Columbus police and fire departments

were called to assist with a tractor-trailer that, while heading west along I-26 at the bottom portion of the Saluda grade area, had a problem shifting gears, traveled backwards and jackknifed, blocking the two lanes of traffic. No

Polk UDO committee cancels Dec. 13 meeting by Barbara Tilly

The Polk County Unified Development Ordinance Committee meeting originally scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. has been canceled. The UDO committee met Thursday, Dec. 1 and discussed possible revisions to its mountain and ridgeline protection ordinance (MRPO). One of the issues was how to handle Saluda Township, whose elevation is high enough that commercial development is prohibited according to the current ordinance. Currently,

the MRPO restricts commercial development on elevations 1,650 feet and above and places further restrictions at 2,250 ft. and above. The meeting Dec. 13 was expected to consider options for the Saluda area and whether to change minimum lot sizes in the MRPO to match the new subdivision ordinance. The UDO committee is made up of community members and is drafting changes to county ordinances in an effort to combine all ordinances into one, unified development ordinance.

I have been in a funk, but I usually get that way during Advent. I seem to be too old, jaded and theologically overeducated to really enjoy the cultural build-up during Advent to Christmas any longer. My son, Isaac, has grown up, married, lives in another state and has produced no grandchildren (a shortcoming of which he is reminded with some regularity), so even the vicarious thrill of a grandchild’s anticipation of the season is absent. (Hear a big, self-indulgent sigh at this point.) And since I am whining and have your full attention, may I add there is not a lot to be said for having yet another layer of church responsibilities added to one’s

plate (hence my impressivesounding but rather meaningless new ecclesiastical title) while pushing into my 61st decade with the mandate from my cardiologist to change my diet, exercise daily, lose weight and adjust to a fistful of new meds. My piteous curmudgeonliness has no bounds, it seems. So here I am, basking in my misery, when God decides enough is enough. He calls my hand as only the Lord can, jerks me out of my self and shows me once again that “it ain’t about me.” My cosmic wedgie came in the form of one of our Holy Cross Outreach forays to the Church of the Advocate in Asheville.

It was my intention to play Santa Cash and simply hand it out to those in attendance one bill at a time and then toddle on home in my warm car and comfortable clothes to a hot dinner and a glass of wine. It would have been simple, but God does not tolerate that kind of arrogance for long. As I went from one person to another, whipping out a fiver with a “Merry Christmas,” I was compelled to really see those to whom I offered such a small gift, and to receive from some of them in return a genuine and heartfelt gratitude totally out of proportion to the gift. They all said “thank you,” every one of them, but the light that fired in some of their faces, and the joy of a momentary blessing in a bleak life that generated robust, though often tooth-

Young musicians are reminded that Jan. 8, 2012 is the final date for applications to be accepted.

When my patriotism overcame logic Your storyteller has let his patriotism overcome his reasoning and must apologize for a lapse in logic in his latest column. Here is the problem I created in that column, as pointed out to me by visiting friend, Jim North: After writing about the flag giving the “protester” the right to soil it, I then asked whether it was “what we wanted” to have the Homeland Security guy restrain a veteran who tried to rescue the flag from desecration by a protester. What I missed in my query was that both the Homeland Security guy and the veteran had taken the same oath to defend the Constitution. The Supreme Court, charged with telling us what the Constitution says, tells us that desecrating our flag is a form of speech (conveniently called “expression” now) that is protected by the Constitution. So what it comes down to is that a serviceman on active duty must also allow the desecration of the flag as part of his sworn duty to his country! Now the lawyers will have to tell me whether a veteran is still bound by the oath he took when he was sworn in for his

tour of duty after he is honorably volunteered to put up our flag discharged and now a civilian. and take it down in front of our I learned in college that our company’s building every workfreedoms do have restrictions day. You can know that our flag and consequences. The example was handled reverently, never I remember is that we must touched the ground, was hoisted not yell “Fire!” in a crowded briskly, lowered gently and retheatre. Fran remembers that spectfully, and folded carefully “Your freedom to swing your into the familiar tricorn, with arm ends at my no red shownose.” I think Remember ing.

But when stories are “right.” Sometimes it takes too published and become archived, long to right the wrongs, but we have the framework in place to do it peacefully, eventually.

they seem to morph into history, for later historians will refer to them, and quote from them, as “research.” Here are two more reasons why I am a poor historian: friend Mike McCue quickly informed me that Ernest Kerhulas bought the Sunnydale building already built (I had said that he built it) and he pointed out that F. Scott Fitzgerald completed his Great Gatsby in the mid-20s, not during the 30s at Oak Hall. Aunt Mildred is gone now, but she used to take me to task often for getting the facts wrong; for instance, she informed me that the shotgun I used on the telephone was HERS, not my grandfather’s. To anyone I have misled, I offer my apologies. And please continue the work of Aunt Mildred and others who keep me honest and truthful, if only after being corrected. Thank you.
