A round of applause opened the Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration in Tryon Saturday, Jan. 14 as Tryon resident Peggy Carter walked across the stage carrying a sign that simply read, “We are all the same on the inside.” The applause didn’t stop there. Instead it kept the event moving as audience members showed support for one another and for Dr. King’s legacy throughout the evening. “We always think of the people on the front lines,” said Dr. Joseph Fox, president of the Thermal Belt Friendship Council. “Often we forget all those people in the background of the movement, supporting those on the frontlines; pushing the movement forward.”

Harmon Field begins master plan for tree planting PCCF awards park $7k grant by Leah Justice

Harmon Field in Tryon is working toward a long-term plan for tree planting after losing more than a dozen trees over the past three years. The Polk County Community Foundation recently awarded the park a $7,000 grant from its Unrestricted Fund for developing the plan. “Over the past three years, Harmon Field has lost over a dozen ‘noble’ trees, such as sycamore, black walnut and locust,” states the grant application. “Many of these trees are believed to have been original plantings, dating back to the park inception in 1927. These 60-plus foot trees have also provided much needed shade and an aesthetic backdrop to our beloved park. Recent visits from arborists, horticulturalists and tree trimmers

have all led to a similar conclusion: many more of these trees will die off over the next decade.” Harmon Field held an informational meeting on Jan. 11 asking the public for input regarding trees at the park. Approximately 12 people attended the round table meeting. Linda Ligon suggested clusters of trees around the park to provide opportunities of shade for people visiting. Libbie Johnson cautioned officials that some trees are toxic to horses, including red maples. Johnson asked that great care be taken in selecting trees even away from the equestrian side of the park. Landscape architect Mark Byington presented Harmon Field’s conditions and reviewed diseases of trees across the state. Another topic of discussion was officials’ desire to make Harmon Field an educational center about tree species. Harmon Field Parks and Recre-

ation Supervisor George Alley said the main goal of the grant is longterm planning. He said the river corridor needs attention, as well as the front border. Alley said officials are considering an ordinance to deal with a host of issues.

The grant will be used to pay for tree inventory and analysis ($1,750), long-range vegetation management and planting master plan development ($4,150), (Continued on page 4)

short-term implementation strategy ($1,350), planting guideline development ($400), as well as to assist in the formulation of a community tree commission and a town tree ordinance, according to the grant application. “Although the desire has been to plop down a new tree in the vicinity of each one felled, the prudent approach is to create a long-term plan to manage the park and town tree canopy,� states the grant application. “The Harmon Field Board of Supervisors has been concerned with not only replacing trees, but making sure that future maintenance is both defined and cost effective.� The first step in creating a master plan will be to create an inventory of the trees. This phase is required to understand the current tree and vegetation conditions on the property so as to

obtain her right to vote. Dorothy Height too felt the sting of discrimination early in life when her best childhood friend told her they could no longer play together because Height was “colored.� Rev. Eleanor Miller brought Height’s lasting pain to life as she said, “That hurt was a hurt I never wanted another child to feel.� So Height pushed back. She was admitted to Barnard College (Continued on page 6)

properly plan for current and future needs, according to Alley. Harmon Field plans to coordinate with a registered local surveyor to locate all existing trees and implement the data into current topographic survey data. The inventory and analysis will identify plant species and conditions, as well as any potential liabilities. The inventory will identify where a qualified arborist needs to engage. Harmon Field, owned by the Town of Tryon, collaborates with more than two dozen community groups that offer programs and special events at the park. The cabin and picnic shelters serve more than 200 groups each year and the athletic facilities serve more than 800 children annually through recreation leagues and camps. Special events, such as the Blue Ridge Barbecue and Music Festival, which is the North Carolina State Championship barbecue competition, bring in more than 20,000 visitors from the region annually.

Polk’s unemployment rate drops slightly in November by Barbara Tilly

Polk County’s unemployment rate dropped slightly in November, from 7.6 percent in October to 7.1 percent in November, according to the latest figures from the North Carolina Employment Security Commission (ESC). Polk followed a statewide trend of dropping unemployment in November. Unemployment rates decreased in 74 of North Carolina’s 100 counties in November. Rates increased in 20 counties and remained the same in six. “Unemployment rates continued to drop across North Carolina in November,” said ESC Chairman Lynn R. Holmes. “Over the year, rates have decreased in 71 counties. We remain focused on assisting our customers at our DES offices and JobLink Career Centers statewide.” The county’s rate is the third lowest in the state. Orange Coun-

ty had the lowest rate at 5.8 percent, followed by Gates at 6.9 percent. Buncombe, Currituck and Watauga counties all had a rate of 7.2 percent. Scotland County had the state’s highest unemployment rate at 16.6 percent, down 0.2 percent from October. Edgecombe County had the second highest rate at 15.5 percent, also down 0.2 percent from October. Polk County’s November rate reflected a 0.8 percentage point drop from November 2010, when Polk’s rate was 7.6 percent. Statewide, North Carolina’s unemployment rate (not seasonally adjusted) decreased from 9.7 in October to 9.5 in November. The state’s rate was 2.7 percent lower than the national rate in November, which was 9.8 percent. Unemployment rates decreased in all 14 of the state’s metropolitan statistical areas.

The Rocky Mount metropolitan area had the highest unemployment rate in November at 12.7 percent. The Durham/Chapel Hill area had the lowest rate at 7.3 percent, down 0.3 of a percentage point from the previous month. Asheville followed at 7.5 percent. Polk County had a labor force of 9,212 in November, of whom 653 were on the unemployment rolls. Statewide, the number of people who were unemployed in November was 427,141. South Carolina’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 9.9 percent in November, an unprecedented 0.6 percent drop from October’s 10.5 percent, according to figures from the Employers Association of South Carolina. This represents the largest monthly drop since 1976, the first year the Bureau of Labor Statistics made the monthly data series available. Spartanburg County’s jobless

New local company Southern Gardens Grow opens to offer ‘green’ Freedom Greenhouse Greenhouse on display at ag center Jan. 20-21 Southern Gardens Grow is a new business offering the Freedom Greenhouse, a self-tending “green” greenhouse. The greenhouse will be on display at the Mill Spring Agricultural Development Center on Jan. 20-21. The business got its start one fall day in New England, when Darlene Myles, a physician from Western North Carolina whose hobby is organic gardening, was in New Hampshire visiting her family. She and her brother attended the Fryeburg Fair in Maine and were introduced to the Freedom Greenhouse, a selftending “green” greenhouse. Myles was in the market for a greenhouse, because her previous greenhouse had been damaged in a local hailstorm. She asked where she could buy the Freedom Greenhouse. The Maine manufacturer explained they did not have a southern distributor but offered to provide her with an initial greenhouse if she became a distributor in the southern states. Upon her return to the Carolinas, Darlene presented the idea to Brenda Quilling, a friend and longtime business owner/entrepreneur, and Southern Gardens

The California Gold Rush

ush Word Search

words hidden in the puzzle below.

On January 24, 1848, a man by the name of James Marshall discovered gold on the banks of the American River located close to Coloma, California. Mr. Marshall had been sent to the area by his employer, Swiss entrepreneur John Sutter, to build a sawmill for Sutter’s ranch. Sutter and Marshall had no interest in the newly discovered gold and decided to keep the discovery to themselves. Against their desire, word got out and was spread quickly by another man, Samuel Brannan. Brannan soon became the wealthiest man in San Francisco, but not from gold. He was a merchant who sold mining supplies to the gold diggers. Sutter lost everything to the gold rush. Many Americans left their homes and jobs seeking the new, easy fortune. During 1849, so many people came to California that the gold diggers were nicknamed “The 49ers.” Americans desiring to go to California had two route options--by land across the country on the treacherous Oregon Trail, or by sea around the Continent of South America. The Oregon Trail was known for its rugged terrain, and many died from disease or starvation. Those who chose the sea option were also faced with bad conditions and plagued by tropical diseases, which were new to Americans at the time, e.g., malaria. Many foreign immigrants also joined the gold rush. The Chinese, Germans, French, Mexicans, and Irish were all part of the Gold Rush. This greatly contributed to making San Francisco, California, the culturally diverse place that it is today. By the late 1850’s, the California Gold Rush was considered to be over.

Letter to the Editor

try to solve it, without eviscerating MRPO. Most recently, I proposed that the MRPO be amended to allow areas zoned Highway Commercial or Neighborhood Commercial to supersede MRPO. The proposal was circulated, including to the mayor and other Saluda officials. Until Friday’s news article, I heard absolutely nothing from the Saluda development advocates, pro or con, about the proposal. If Mayor Baisden had a problem with the proposal, why couldn’t he have picked up the phone and called me to work it out? Neither Mayor Baisden, nor any of the other Saluda development proponents, except Leon Morgan, has ever contacted me about the MRPO issue, or made

any effort to solve their problem. It is sad that earnest efforts on my part and on the part of the UDO Committee have been met by months of repeated stonewalling and recriminations. I don’t recall the Saluda development advocates mentioning wanting industry in Saluda until I read it in the newspaper. Do Saluda residents really want industry? Nevertheless, there’s a very easy fix for that: Just add Industrial zoning to Highway Commercial and Neighborhood Commercial as areas that are exempt from MRPO. If Mayor Baisden had told me about that concern, I could have provided him this solution a month ago. A year ago, I suggested that the Saluda development advo-

cates might fashion a solution to all of their concerns for the UDO Committee to consider. At that meeting, the UDO Committee said it unanimously was in favor of responding to Saluda’s needs. The development advocates never responded with any suggestion, except essentially eliminating MRPO for the entire county. So I finally prepared a written proposal that I believed would solve all the concerns that had been brought up. Mayor Baisden responded only in the newspaper. If people want to successfully resolve these issues, let’s do it, with open and frequent communication. If people want to drag this out as part of some political offensive, let’s not. – Renee McDermott, Tryon

Communication necessary for cooperation The Tryon Daily Bulletin printed an excellent article in Friday’s paper about the Unified Development Ordinance and the Mountain and Ridgeline Protection Ordinance (MRPO). But there are some further points to be made. First, no one is imposing anything on Saluda that isn’t in effect in the rest of the county. But because of Saluda’s elevation, the MRPO affects it differently. Having had that issue brought to the attention of the UDO Committee, we have been working diligently to

St. Luke’s Auxiliary welcomes Field as new president St. Luke’s Hospital Auxiliary has announced Wendy Field has accepted the role of president, replacing Jean Shumway, who served as auxiliary president for three years. In her new role, she will also serve on the hospital’s board of trustees. Shumway said she is excited to see Field take on the role as the new president. “She brings new ideas and is organized, friendly and personable. Her previous experience working with volunteers will be invaluable,” Shumway said. Field began volunteering at St. Luke’s Hospital at the registration desk a little more than a year ago after she served as a reference for a friend. As someone who had always worked, she said she was looking for something meaningful to do. After interviewing and coming to St. Luke’s Hospital for a tour, she said, “Immediately I was impressed by how friendly everyone was, and the positive energy.” Originally from New Jersey, Field has worked in real estate as an agent and was a broker-in-

charge of a New Jersey GMAC office and a Pennsylvania office, having brokers’ licenses in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. After she moved to Lake Lure to be closer to her children and grandchildren, she was brokerin-charge of LakesEdge Realty in Lake Lure, N.C. “As president of the auxiliary, I wish to continue in the spirit of the organization,” Field said. “It is an outstanding group of dedicated volunteers, who not only give of their time and talent, but their spirit. As with any other non-profit, we need to revisit recruiting additional volunteers, and finding new venues for fundraising.” In her free time, she also volunteers as a member of the vestry at the Church of the Transfiguration in Lake Lure and has worked on Lake Lure’s Olympiad Committee. Field also likes reading, travel and antiques and enjoys spending time with her four children, seven grandchildren and great-grandson.

A pictorial journey through Polk County On Wednesday, Jan. 18 at 1 p.m. the community is invited to join the Tryon Garden Club at the Polk County Library in the community room. John Vining, Polk County Extension Director and a lifetime resident of Polk County, will share his pictures and stories of life in Tryon. Vining has a B.S. in plant sciences from Clemson University. In addition, he has many hours of graduate work in the field. Vining is an active volunteer in Polk Country and gives his time to serve on two park committees, the Courthouse Restoration Committee, the Carolina Heritage line and the Tryon Arts and Crafts board. In addition, he is known for coaching youth

basketball teams and serves on the Carolina Kids Conservancy Advisory Board. Vining said he is particularly interested in preserving older homes and pre-1960 commercial structures in Polk County. His chosen methodology for preservation is finding new uses for old buildings. Vining’s presentation will blend his interest in historic preservation with his well-known expertise in growing trees and plants in Polk County. This meeting is free and open to the public.
