It all began in 2009 when a nine-year-old boy didn’t want to go to his brother’s baseball practice. The alternative was to go with his mom, who was playing in the orchestra of the Living Christmas Tree at Berea First Baptist Church in Greenville, S.C. The only place he could sit was in the orchestra pit on the step next to the French hornist, Paula Riddle, professor of French horn at Furman University. Isaiah Adderholdt, a student at O.P. Earle Elementary in Landrum, said he fell in love with the French horn at that moment and began asking for (Continued on page 3)

Columbus now allows yard sale signs by Leah Justice

Columbus residents can now display up to four signs for yard, garage or estate sales. Such signs were previously not allowed within the town limits. Columbus Town Council met Thursday, Dec. 15 and approved an amendment to the town’s

temporary sign ordinance. Yard, garage and estate sale signs can be placed no earlier than 24 hours prior to the sale and they must be removed no later than 12 p.m. the day after the sale. The town will allow one on-premise sign and no more than three off-premise signs for a sale. Each sign must not

Columbus tree project delayed State awaits federal guidelines for contractor pay by Leah Justice

A project to plant trees in front of businesses along Columbus’ I-26 corridor has been delayed until March 2012. Columbus Town Manager Jonathan Kanipe told town council Thursday, Dec. 15 the N.C. Department of Transportation (DOT) is unable to put the project out for bid until the federal government releases the state wage scale, or guidelines on how much the state can pay contractors. The project includes the Polk County Appearance Commission, the town, the DOT and the Polk County Community Foundation (PCCF). The PCCF awarded the project $10,000 and the DOT is also providing funds for the

purchase of the trees, some of which is federal funding. The project was originally scheduled to go out to bid in November with the trees set to be planted at the first of the year. The PCCF approved an extension on the funding until March, Kanipe said. The DOT has indicated the project should be completed by March. Polk County’s Gateway Tree Planting Project was first envisioned by the Polk County Appearance Commission last year to improve the aesthetics of the entrances of Columbus, Saluda and Tryon. The Mills Street project will include planting more than 40 trees from I-26 to Walker Street along the town’s I-26 business corridor. The species of trees include 16 maples, eight cherry trees and 18 oaks. The trees will be planted along rights of way owned by the state in front of Columbus businesses.

On Friday, Dec. 16, 2011, God called our amazing angel, Amy Murphy Greene, to heaven. Born in Henderson County, N.C., she was the daughter of Roy E. and Sheila Jones Murphy of Hendersonville, N.C. She was a graduate of West Henderson High School, class of 1993. She attended Trevecca University in Nashville, Tenn., and was a graduate of the nursing program at Blue Ridge Community College, and was currently attending Gardner Webb University in Boiling Springs, N.C. Her loving personality brought joy to everyone she met. Some were touched while she worked as a Registered Nurse at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center, others were touched as she sang in the choir at Melvin Hill Church of the Brethren.

Ours Volunteers on county boards critical to good decision-making Polk County’s government needs volunteers. It depends on them for the information on which county decisions are based, for wisdom gained through years of work and life experience and for different perspectives on the issues that face our county officials. The county has 33 volunteer advisory boards, covering a wide range of topics, including aging, appearance, farming, library, recreation, recycling, economic development, planning, zoning, juvenile crime, social services and mental health issues. It may seem that these boards do nothing more than just meet periodically and produce boring, apparently pointless reports. Certainly such volunteer work will have its boring moments, and its frustrating ones, but pointless it is not. In fact, the information and other services provided by these volunteer advisory boards are critical to helping our county make good decisions. Without the background information provided by these boards, commissioners and other officials would be forced either to spend their limited time to gather that information themselves – if they even could gain access to the sources they would need – or, more likely, to make decisions without adequate knowledge. So in this season of giving, maybe we should add Polk County to our Christmas list and consider giving our time and expertise in service to our county. It’s a gift that can make a difference to us, our families and our neighbors for years to come. And it’s easier to apply for the volunteer boards now, too. Polk officials recently created a new webpage on the county’s main website that includes a list of the county’s volunteer advisory boards, when they meet, what they do, who to contact and information about vacancies on the boards. Happy holidays! — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

Washington broken To the Editor: “Washington’s broken!” That’s a fairly common observation made by many these days. Sadly, it’s true. The so-called Super Committee provides the latest and most disturbing evidence of the degree of its “broken-ness.” With the country’s troubles at hand, Americans should reasonably be entitled to the assurance that the very best talent there is would be assigned to the task of solving our problems. The Super Committee failed! It simply quit. And it admitted its failure. This should be recorded as one of the most tragic, shameful and disgraceful events in American history. Surely, solutions exist to deal effectively with the many dilemmas we now face, solutions that require intellect, imagination and new thinking to evolve, plus a large measure of courage, perseverance, accommodation and, yes, sacrifice to implement. A key question is, “How did the Super Committee dare to give up?” I’m in the middle of read-

ing Dwight D. Eisenhower’s “Crusade in Europe,” which is filled, cover to cover, with far more insurmountable and critical problems than we face today. But consider the quality of that leadership, a then-obscure Eisenhower and many others, who worked cooperatively with him to bring about a total and decisive victory from the feeble, impotent state we found ourselves in 1941. But those men didn’t quit when the going got tough, seemingly hopeless at times. Indeed, the bleaker the prospects, the greater the perseverance, the effort - and they never gave up! Is it possible that the skill, determination, imagination, ingenuity, perseverance, courage and leadership that it took to mobilize this nation and its allies to wrest unconditional surrender from a powerful Axis have vanished? I really don’t believe so, but we have to find the right people and, regrettably, none are in Washington today who are able (or willing?) to fix its “broken-ness.” As citizens, our duty is clear: be exceedingly careful about whom we elect (hire) as public servants, at all levels. – Bill Wuehrmann, Tryon

Letter to the Editor

Remembering friends who have gone to better place To the Editor: As each year comes to a close, I find myself recalling the memory of friends who have gone to a better place. I somehow believe that it is an exercise that many people utilize. Since retiring to this area I’ve had the privilege of meeting new friends both young and old. Most of these friends are acquired through my work with animals and through church or in many cases, both. One group is especially dear to me and that is our early morning breakfast group. Each day we meet at T.J.’s Café and discuss and banter just about every subject that there is. I joined the group nearly five years ago and our conversations are often both stimulating and humorous. Most are retirees and

as you’d expect, are getting on in years. Because of that fact every now and then we lose one and they go on to that better place. For me it is a sad time as I find myself wishing I could have known them longer. Over my years there we have lost Roy, Clarence, Bo, Eugene, and most recently, Glen Morgan. Each remains in our conversations often as we reminisce with fondness. I’ve made it my business to visit them all when they were ill and to be there for the final goodbye. At McFarland’s Funeral Home, as I passed through the line paying my last respects to Glen, I was pulled aside and hugged. “Glen thought the world of you, Lennie.” I tearfully said, “Thank you,” and returned the feeling. As I reflect that life is good after all, for what more can one hope for than to touch the heart and soul of a friend and they you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all and remember, it may be a good time to hug a friend. – Leonard Rizzo, Tryon

Guardian ad Litem program seeks volunteers After asking her to close her eyes for a surprise, David (name changed to protect his identity) leads Marcia Harris into his aunt’s kitchen, where his mom, aunt and little sister are baking Christmas cookies together. While baking cookies might seem common, especially at this time of year, it was the first time in 18 months that David and his little sister had been reunited with their mother outside of a visitation room. “I was so touched by this scene that it brought tears to my eyes,” said Harris. Harris, who lives in Raleigh, N.C., is the children’s Guardian ad Litem volunteer. A Guardian ad Litem (GAL) is a trained community volunteer who is appointed by a district court judge to seek the best interests of abused and neglected children petitioned into the court

system by the Department of Social Services. Guardian ad Litem volunteers provide a voice for abused and neglected children in every county in North Carolina. The volunteer investigates – making home visits and talking with the child’s parents, teachers, and social workers – and then independently reports his or her recommendations to the court. The Guardian ad Litem program is currently seeking volunteers to be the voice of a child in court. If you have an interest in this program, call the office for Henderson, Transylvania and Polk counties at 828-697-4572 or visit www.ncgal.org.

Bill Jones visited the Tryon Kiwanis Club to talk about worms. He has studied vermicology, the biology of earthworms, and he told the club some facts about earthworms, such as there are estimated to be more than one million worms on every acre of land in the country. Worm castings (manure) is the richest dirt, which is why every gardener and farmer wants to have plenty of worms around. Vermicompost is the product or process of composting utilizing various species of worms, usually red wigglers. Kiwanis Club member Ernie Giannini (left) invited Jones (right) to speak at the meeting. The children’s book “In the Park” will be given to a local school in Jones’ honor. (photo submitted by Lynn Montgomery)

Hope for Horses seeking homes for unwanted horses Hope for Horses (HFH) is seeking homes for horses. Although funding is certainly a huge part of any nonprofit’s existence, when it comes to equine rescue, space is almost as critical, and HFH pastures are full. HFH is turning away horses that need homes because

there is literally “no room at the inn.” During November, three HFH adopters who have become additional economic casualties contacted HFH about finding homes for the horses they adopted. If you have room for a horse,

or know someone who might, contact HFH at 828-683-0160 or hopeforhorses@aol.com to discuss adopting or fostering a horse that needs a home. More information is available at www.hopeforhorses. org. If you can’t adopt or foster a

horse, consider sponsoring an HFH horse. Visit the website for more information about how you can help with the feeding, vet and farrier care, dental care and other equine needs of an HFH horse you choose. – article submitted by Hope for Horses

PCMS students visit Walnut Grove Plantation

Eighth-grade students from Polk County Middle School visited Walnut Grove Plantation near Spartanburg, S.C. recently as part of their study of Colonial America. Students participated in a program entitled “Surviving Colonial America.” Walnut Grove is a preserved 18th century plantation that illustrates life in the backcountry Piedmont of North and South Carolina. While visiting, students learned hands-on how to create shelters for survival in the backcountry and how colonists traded with the Cherokee in the western Carolinas. (photo submitted by Eric Eaton)
