Landrum Library to host Smithsonian exhibit this fall Exhibit focuses on roots music by Samantha Hurst

The Smithsonian is coming to Landrum. A traveling exhibit known as New Harmonies will arrive at Landrum Library this fall, with plans for it to be on display from Aug. 4-Sept. 16. “This particular exhibit is focused on roots music – we’re talking about Appalachian folk music, sacred music, country, jazz, blues – it covers the whole spectrum,” said Landrum Library Supervisor Lee Morgan. “We really wanted to host this so students and locals could have a chance to see something they might not have the opportunity to see otherwise.” New Harmonies is part of (Continued on page 3)

According to www.museumofhoaxes.com, the April 2000 Esquire magazine introduced readers to Freewheelz, which intended to provide free cars in exchange for the placement of large ads on the vehicle. Readers might have realized the article, written by Ted Fishman, was a satire if they had noticed that Freewheelz’s rollout was slated to occur on April 1. While organizers of the Tryon April Fool’s Day Festival won’t be giving out free cars either, they encourage participants to start building vehicles now for the annual Outhouse Races.

the Smithsonian’s MOMS, or Museum on Main Street, section. “The idea behind it is to bring the Smithsonian to rural areas in the country,” said Morgan. “They do that by having traveling exhibits that center on different topics.” Landrum Library applied for a grant, for financial assistance in hosting events along with the exhibit, through the South Carolina Humanities Council and the Smithsonian. This exhibit, Morgan said, normally travels through one state at six different locations. South Carolina, however, had an overwhelming number of applications so the state was granted the exhibit for two years at 12 different sites. Landrum Library applied for participation a year and a half ago and found out at the end of last year that it was selected to be one of six cities to host the exhibit in (Continued on page 4)

2012. The closest the exhibit has come to Landrum was when it was presented in Gaffney in April 2011. With that in mind, Morgan anticipates a boisterous six weeks of lectures and musical performances related to the exhibit. “We find that a lot of our library patrons have difficulty making the trip to Spartanburg for events like this that are held at the headquarters library, so we felt it would be beneficial to bring something closer to home,” Morgan said. “The other reason is that we have a rich musical heritage in this area – a lot of local bands and musicians live in this area and not only people who play, but people who have studied music as well.” The New Harmonies exhibit focuses on music and the role it played in our nation’s history, Morgan said. She said the library is lining up performances at several local churches for sacred music, plus programs at the local schools and possibly events like a street dance downtown. “This is a big, big deal for Landrum because not everybody in the state is getting this exhibit to come to their library,” said councilman Jon Matheis after the council was approached with the idea to help support events surrounding the exhibit next fall. City administrator Steve Wolo-

chowicz said he expects the events to bring people from around the area to view the exhibit and take part in the lectures and performances accompanying it – great for promoting tourism. “We’re really fortunate as a city to have the opportunity to host this exhibit,” Wolochowicz said. “I know the city is likely going to support one or more of the events by at least providing some banners and advertising.” Wolochowicz said council has not determined its exact contribution because it is still awaiting figures for event costs. The library received a $2,500 grant that must be matched locally. This money is to be spent on the performances held surrounding the exhibit. The South Carolina Humanities Council and the Smithsonian together cover all the costs for shipping the exhibit and training staff on the set-up of the exhibit, as well as helping to cover the costs of some publicity. The money the library must raise through sponsorships will cover the various events to be held around town in conjunction with the exhibit. The library also hopes to build an outdoor stage at the library that would give the city another venue to host music events such as the ones to be held in August and September. Morgan said the plan is for the stage to be finished before those events take place.

Lost Green River kayakers safe by Leah Justice

Polk and Henderson rescue crews and helicopters from Mission Hospital and the N.C. Highway Patrol spent Wednesday evening searching for two Georgia kayakers who spent the afternoon on the Green River and did not check in with loved ones. The kayakers emerged from the woods at Fishtop Mountain where their truck was parked with no injuries, according to Polk County dispatch.

Ryan Roth and Matt Holbrook parked their truck at Fishtop, and Roth’s father dropped them off at a trailhead on Big Hungry Road in Henderson County for a day of kayaking. When the men did not call that night to say they were okay, Roth’s father called police and drove back to North Carolina from Georgia. Rescue crews suspended the search until daybreak and found the kayakers walking out of the woods at 4 a.m. Thursday, according to dispatch officials.

1/25/12 *** Amazon.com announced this week its plans to employ nearly 400 people at a new fulfillment center that will begin operations in Spartanburg County this fall. The company plans to invest $50 million in the facility, its second fulfillment center in South Carolina. Amazon opened a center last year in Lexington County, S.C. “South Carolina has been a great home to us and we’re excited to create hundreds of additional jobs in the state,” said Dave Clark, vice president of Amazon Global Customer Fulfillment. The new, one-million-squarefoot center in Spartanburg County will be on a 200-plus-acre industrial park near John Dodd Road and I-26. The online retailer says it plans to begin hiring later this year at the Spartanburg Center, which is expected to distribute larger items, such as kayaks and lawn mowers. Spartanburg County already approved economic incentives for the project, along with a 6 percent fee-in-lieu of taxes agreement for 30 years. – www.sccommerce.com, www.scbiznews.com, 1/23/12

The Asheville area’s reputation as a leading area for craft breweries got a big boost this week. Sierra Nevada announced it selected a site in Mills River, near the Asheville Regional Airport, for a new brewing facility that will serve the East Coast. The brewery, which will be built in the 90-acre Ferncliff Industrial Park at the northern end of Henderson County, is expected to create jobs and draw more tourists to the area. Sierra Nevada says it’s planning a production facility, along with an onsite restaurant, tasting room and possibly an entertainment venue. The brewing company says it will create 95 full-time jobs, along with 80 part-time jobs, and invest $107.5 million in the brewery over the next five years. The independent, familyowned brewing company says the brewery also will approximately 60 construction jobs during the two-year building process. The company says it plans to begin work later this year on the plant. Buncombe County is home to 10 craft breweries and others are scattered across Western North Carolina. North Carolina has a total of 28 craft breweries, more than any other southern state, and nearly two dozen brewpubs. Sierra Nevada, founded in 1980, is the sixth largest craft brewer in the country, employing more than 500 people. The company says it plans to offer an average wage of $41,526 plus benefits for the new full-time jobs in Henderson County, well above the current county average of $32,240. Sierra Nevada will receive a $1.025 million grant from the One North Carolina Fund if it meets employment and investment targets. – source: www.governor. state.nc.us and www.citizen

*** TS Designs in Burlington recently harvested the first certified organic cotton crop in North Carolina. TS Designs President Eric Henry said the cotton will be used for shirts produced by the design company. He said his company formed Cotton of the Carolinas to grow organic cotton, support local jobs and “go from dirt to shirt all in North Carolina.” TS Designs previously obtained organic yarn for its organic cotton T-shirts from overseas. Now it comes from 65 acres (Continued on page 15)

at Hickory Meadows Organics and Parrish Enterprises farms in eastern North Carolina. “Up to this crop, there has been no organic cotton grown in North Carolina,” said Henry. “This is something that everybody said couldn’t be done.” Approximately 25,000 pounds of organic cotton were produced at the farms this year, and both Hickory Meadows Organics and Parrish Enterprises have committed to growing the organic cotton again next year, possibly on more acreage. Henry says his company hopes to create more organic cotton products, such as socks and denim. “Ultimately, what we want to do is keep most of the cotton in North Carolina,” he said. “It’s going to have a tremendous positive impact on jobs.” – source: Burlington TimesNews, Business Wire, 12/30/11 *** The Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District has the highest population of homeless kids in the state, according to figures presented recently by the district. The district reported it has more than 4,700 students who lack adequate housing, a big jump from 2008 when it had about 3,000. Kay Carreria of CharlotteMecklenburg Schools said the district has students who live in cars, hotel rooms or on the streets. “Thank goodness for our emergency shelters, but they’re already overcrowded,” said Carreria. “The ones who have been living in cars and out in the woods are now moving into the shelters and there’s not even room there.” – source: www.WSOCtv.com, Charlotte City Buzz Examiner, 12/27/11 *** The North Carolina Biotechnology Center was awarded $750,000 in Multidisciplinary Research Grants (MRG) for research relating to prostate cancer.

The money will go to scientists at North Carolina State University, East Carolina University and the University of North Carolina Wilmington to work on improved identification of prostate cancer and improved drug therapies. The $250,000 MRGs support development of preliminary data needed for federal grant applications. The biotechnology center is a private, non-profit corporation supported by the N.C. General Assembly.

*** North Carolina’s first modern-day toll road began collecting tolls this month. Drivers were able to try the new Triangle Expressway tollfree since it opened on Dec. 8. However, the N.C. Turnpike Authority began collecting tolls electronically this month. The six-lane TriEx, a 3.7mile extension of the Durham Freeway from I-40 to the 540 Outer Loop, was used by about 10,000 cars and trucks a day during the toll-free period. Cars with a N.C. Quick Pass are charged a base toll of 50 cents per trip on the expressway. The N.C. Turnpike Authority says it has already sold about 10,000 passes for the TriEx. Owners of cars that do not have the N.C. Quick Pass will be charged 77 cents per trip and sent a monthly invoice in the mail. The drivers’ addresses are obtained through photos of license plates. Work has begun to extend the Triangle Expressway through Wake County to Holly Springs. The state also plans to begin toll collection later this year on an existing section of 540 and a new section of 540 between N.C. 55 south and U.S. 64.

January, National Blood Donor month “We know how hard today’s economic conditions have been on everyone in our community,” Polk Red Cross officials said. “Every day, families struggle to deal with day-to-day expenses and emergencies, and it has become increasingly difficult to include charitable giving in the family budget. Blood donation offers every individual the opportunity to give the most precious gift there is – a gift that costs the donor no money, just an hour of time. So please, come and donate and give a gift that only you can give.” There are two upcoming blood donation opportunities in Polk County: Monday, Jan. 30 Holy Cross Episcopal Church, Melrose Ave. in Tryon, 12:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2 American Red Cross Chapter 231 Ward St. in Columbus, 2 to 6:30 p.m. Both events will offer a gift for donors.

Remembering Saluda’s Past: Phoebe Sullivan--black faith healer Time has taken over much of the places Phoebe Sullivan once knew in her lifetime: it marches on, vines thick, houses crumbling, the past a distant memory. Yet her vivid legend lives on. Long ago, in a time when blacks in America had little power or money, Phoebe Cheek Sullivan overcame the odds: she was black and a woman; born in poverty to former slaves in Laurens County, S.C. in 1864, a year before the Civil War ended. Women of any race did not have the right to vote or own property. Phoebe, while illiterate, was raised with a deeply religious background. At the age of 9, she experienced a life-changing vision that led her to become a divine healer: which changed her own life, and that of thousands of others. With the support of a local doctor, she used her gift until she married at age 19, although she kept them hidden from her husband Henry, worried he would think them

‘strange.’ Phoebe “would pray over it.” After Henry’s death she came to Others were allowed to prepare Saluda with 16 children in tow; 20 the base; but she alone added the more were adopted. Another vision ‘essence.’ came, this time enlightening her Word spread among the black to 10 herbs that grew in trees and community in Saluda; then to the shrubbery. Gathering these herbs, white.

it was, it often worked. In 1947, she founded the Sullivan Temple Missionary Baptist Church, which still exists. Phoebe built a sprawling house for her large family and spent considerable amounts of money on civic causes and caring for the poor. Each year, she would have a birthday party; hundreds and hundreds of people, even whole congregations from New York and Washington, would come to celebrate. Her books included “The Book of Dreams,” and “From The Cradle to The Crutch,” among other memoirs. Accounts vary over the age she actually was at her death in 1963, but she did attain ‘old age:’ estimates range from 99 to 107. Buried at Mountain Page Cemetery near Saluda, she is still remembered as a woman who cared for others and lived simply; the legend of Phoebe Sullivan lives on, despite the crumbling buildings, encroaching kudzu and passing of time.

Jackiw and Yang – plucky, proficient, powerful Although I know that the 20-somethings of Generation Y are not actually so engrossed in electronically delivered content that they will surf the net through the apocalypse, I’m old enough to acknowledge some relief when I experience examples that assure a brilliantly evolving world. Violinist Stefan Jackiw (jackEEV) and pianist Joyce Yang presented Tryon Concert Association’s 2011-2012 penultimate concert Jan. 20 at the Tryon Fine Arts Center to a packed house that honored the duo with two standing ovations. Given their willowy agility, music for the ballet “Pulcinella” was the perfect opener for Jackiw and Yang, whose walk across the stage bespoke their gifts before either had made a sound. Stravinsky’s “Suite Italienne” reminds us that Stravinsky cannot be associated with any particular style, nor should this neo-classical piece be considered a 20th century regression to be treated with restraint. The duo

The duo’s compelling freshness that is surely shared respect for downbeats crewhat Stravinsky was aiming for ated exhilarating forward motion (in spite of impressario Diaghilev’s in the fast sections and purposeful instructions to “arrange” the music undulation in the Andante.

to calm, lyrical passages, the dazzling portions benefited from the duo’s solid technique as well as their keen feel for good drama. The magnificent Brahms “Sonata No. 3 in D minor, Op. 108” closed the program with poignancy and pizzazz – the latter a description I reluctantly apply because it doesn’t belong in the same sentence with Brahms. I found Jackiw to be a more mature artist than Yang in terms of concept and nuance, but his insights were occasionally lost in Yang’s sparkling, disconcertingly clean accompaniment that should have been more brooding, wavelike and mysterious with hemiolas more subtle and bass at least occasionally blurred and rumbly. The beautiful second movement (Adagio) was repeated as an encore, allowing us once again to enjoy Jackiw’s smooth, pitch-perfect double stops. All in all, this was a first-rate program. Jackiw and Yang have already achieved star status and worldwide acclaim and will continue to brilliantly evolve in their boundless world of sound.

Rizzo speaks to Kiwanis about saving animals On Dec. 28, Lennie Rizzo visited the Tryon Kiwanis Club to talk about his work saving animals. As a volunteer with Foothills Humane Society and regular columnist in the Tryon Daily Bulletin, Lennie and his labor of love for dogs and cats are well known in the community. He said his fundraising for veterinarian bills helps many pets who need medical care stay in their homes with owners who cannot afford the costs. He also seeks loving homes for animals that have been abandoned or mistreated. Kiwanians said his stories tugged at their hearts. Shown above are Chuck Davis and Kathy Woodham with Lennie (right) after his talk. The children’s book “Who Is Melvin Bubble?” will be given to a local school library in his honor.

Jameson offers painting workshop Well-known artist William Jameson of Saluda has announced his first painting workshop of 2012, called “Working Large.” The Feb. 16-18 studio class, to be held in Saluda, will concentrate on making good paintings in a larger format than one’s comfort zone.

• I’m just saying (continued from page 27)

It should be noted there was another half hour’s worth of driving until they reached their destination. “Oh, that’s nice.” Paul squirmed within the awkward silence that followed. “Um, want some gum?” “No thanks.” she smiled. “If I chew gum when I dance, it’s hard for me to follow the beat.” “It was weird!” Paul declared, telling me the story. “I mean, you meet someone for the first time and they’re like, ‘Hi, how are you? Do you think it’s going to rain, yada, yada,’ knowing you’re going to see them nearly naked a half hour later.” “Was she the opening act?” I wanted to know.

me, “and is fully cage trained if need be. He actually likes going in when asked.” Again Bowser was adopted and returned, get this, because he is too clingy! We were all amazed at that one. Bowser is the reverse of many of the dogs I deal with. His problem is not giving up the trust, he trusts and will go with anyone who shows him the slightest bit of attention and love. He’d certainly stop being too clingy once he was in a secure loving home. How do I know? At the moment I have eight animals at my home who

“What are you, crazy?” he replied. “No way. I opened for her. How could I possibly follow a stripper in front of all those liquored up guys?” “How was the ride back?” “That’s the really strange part,” Paul remembered. “It’s as if nothing had happened. She dressed, we got back in the car and she started talking about... just stuff. I was too embarrassed to even make eye contact but she chatted away as if she’d just gone to the grocery store to pick up milk.” So, you see, folks, you never quite know what goes on in a couple of these places. But if I do more of these concerts I can assure all of you that I would never, ever, even dream of removing my top. No matter how many laughs I would get. are too clingy. I wouldn’t want it any other way. This week during church services, among other things, I prayed for some help for my kids. Upon leaving, my wife Elaine, moved ahead of me as I usually get caught up speaking to many parishioners who are both friends and supporters. I noticed Elaine circling back with a parishioner who every now and then seeks me out. “This is for your kids,” she said, handing me $20. “God bless you,” I replied embracing her. I turned back and looked at the cross, “That as pretty quick Lord, thank you, we’re on our way.” Thanks for listening.

Beattie utilizes his knowledge of gospel, jazz and the sounds of the Delta to flavor his music, creating sounds audiences say are as rich as Muddy Waters and as down and dirty as Howling Wolf. Shane Pruitt Band: Raised in Spartanburg, S.C., Shane Pruitt plays blues that “groove without compromise and wail without mercy.” Pruitt was named “the most exciting young bluesman working today” by Peter Cooper, music critic for the Nashville Tennessean. Jim Peterman (B3/bass/vocals) and Bill Fletcher (drums/vocals) combine with Pruitt to form the band. Tickets are on sale at the Tryon Fine Arts Center Box office Tuesday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. For more information, visit www.tryonarts.org or call 828-859-8322. - article submitted by Marianne Carruth

Heartburn relief for seniors in need, tips and treatment Dear Savvy Senior, Is heartburn considered to be an uncomfortable inconvenience or a symptom of a more serious problem? I’ve had mild heartburn for years but it has gotten worse since I’ve gotten older. What can you tell me and what should I do? ~ Rolaids Eating Ron Dear Ron, Almost everyone experiences the discomfort of heartburn or acid indigestion from time to time, but frequent episodes can signal a much more serious problem. Here’s what you should know, along with some tips and treatments to help relieve your symptoms. Heartburn Alert It’s estimated that more than 40 million Americans experience heartburn at least once a week, with around 25 million folks who suffer from it daily. If you’re plagued by heartburn two or more times a week, and it’s not responding well to over-thecounter antacids, you need to see your doctor. Frequent bouts may mean you have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) which can severely irritate and damage the lining of the esophagus, putting you at risk of Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal cancer, if it’s not treated. Lifestyle Adjustments Depending on the frequency and severity of your heartburn, there are a number of lifestyle adjustments you can make that can help you get relief and avoid a more serious problem down the road. Consider these tips: ¡ Adjust your diet: Certain

Savvy Senior foods can trigger heartburn symptoms like citrus fruits, tomatoes, fatty foods, chocolate, garlic, onions, spicy foods, mints, alcohol, coffee and sodas. Keep a food diary to track which foods cause you the most problems and avoid them. ¡ Eat less: Take smaller portions and eat slower. Having a full stomach can cause acid reflux. Also avoid exercising, bending or lying down for two hours after eating. And don’t eat at least two to Strauss & Associates, PA three hours before bedtime.

Treatment Options If the lifestyle adjustments don’t solve the problem, or if antacids (Tums, Rolaids, Maalox, Mylanta or Alka-Seltzer) aren’t doing the trick there are a variety of over-the-counter and prescription medications that can help along with a surgical option.
