Chamber holds 24th annual awards banquet Brady, Nagle win top honors by Samantha Hurst

Polk County Technology Director Dave Scherping and Chinese exchange teacher Lian Lianhong spoke to the Tryon Kiwanis Club Wednesday, Feb. 8. According to Scherping, Polk County Schools now has the largest Mandarin program in the state, with just under 10 percent of its high school students taking a Mandarin course.

Here’s a list of upcoming meetings and events for area nonprofit community and governmental organizations:

The Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce, during its annual awards banquet Tuesday, Feb. 7, recognized four people the organization felt made a difference in the community in 2011. The chamber named Steven Brady as its 2012 Business Person of the Year and Dennis Nagle as Volunteer of the Year. The chamber’s annual Pig Awards, given to volunteers who have committed significant years of service to the Blue Ridge Barbecue Festival, went to Jack Holmes, who has for years run the security team, and Jerry Tyner, who manages the infield vendors during each year’s event.

North, South Carolina state line could move Joint boundary commission to meet Feb. 14 in Rock Hill by Leah Justice

Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson recently received a letter from the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources

saying the states of North and South Carolina have created the N.C.-S.C. State Boundary Commission to determine the official border between the two states. The letter said the commission is seeking input on how potential changes might affect residents and counties. Whitson announced the letter

• Chamber awards (continued from page 1)

Andy Millard presented Brady the Business Person of the Year award, reminding chamber members that Brady Insurance has been in business for 84 years in Polk County. “There are not many businesses in Polk County that can match that record,” Millard said. “He [Steven Brady] is the third generation to run the family-owned business and he has taken that business and helped to build it up further with help from partners.” Brady thanked the chamber for the honor and talked a bit about how his family’s insurance business was created. “When most people went out of business during the Depression, we went into business because of the Depression,” Brady said. Brady’s great uncle started selling insurance on the side in 1928 as a means of bringing in extra money for his family. Brady’s father took over in the 1960s and

Owens said when he was on the board of commissioners in the 1980s the state discussed the same thing. Commissioners agreed for Whitson to attend a meeting on Feb. 14 at 1 p.m. at the Bowater Room of the Baxter Hood Center at York Technical College in Rock Hill, S.C. The letter was sent on Jan. 25 by Gary W. Thompson, N.C.-S.C. Boundary Commission co-chair. The complete letter is as follows: “Dear Mr. Whitson: “North Carolina and South Carolina created the N.C.S.C. Joint Boundary Commission to re-establish the original and official boundary between our two states. As you are aware, there has been much jurisdictional confusion across our common boundary due to the uncertainty of the boundary’s precise location, which was established in sections by a series of surveys between 1735 and 1815, because the boundary surveyors did not permanently mark the boundary with stone or cement monuments, but instead marked the boundary by simply chopping hack marks into trees. Consequently, the boundary became more and more ambiguous as these ‘boundary trees’ disappeared, because neither state maintained the boundary’s location with permanent monuments. “The commission, which is administered by the N.C. Geodetic Survey (NCGS) and the S.C. Geodetic Survey (SCGS), has been charged with the task of locating the original boundary points. Both states are committed to accurately determining the original location of the boundary; marking it with permanent monuments so that this

confusion will not continue into the future; and minimizing impact on the affected residents, property owners, businesses and county governments. “The commission has approved the technical work re-establishing the following (please peruse the enclosed boundary map): “• ‘Old North Corner’ to ‘Block House’ boundary section, which was originally surveyed in 1772 “• ‘Old North Corner’ to the Catawba Indian Reservation boundary subsection, which was resurveyed and changed in 1813 “Before the commission will send its boundary survey recommendation to N.C. and S.C. state officials for their review and adoption (N.C. General Statute 141-5), the commission would like to determine how the affected property owners, residents and businesses would be impacted if their property, residence or business were deemed to be across the line (i.e. in North Carolina instead of in South Carolina or vice versa). Thus, the commission sent letters to these people seeking their views and is compiling their responses so that state officials will be able to address those issues in an effort to minimize the impact of the re-established boundary. “In addition to recognizing that there would be issues at the property level, the commission also recognized that there would be issues at the county government level. Consequently, we are seeking input from county officials and will hold a meeting regarding the re-establishment of the N.C.S.C. boundary section between ‘Old North Corner’ and ‘Block House’ for county officials of the affected counties at 1 p.m. (Continued on page 7)

We live in a time of tremendous uncertainty, but then who am I to tell you that? The challenges of today’s political, economic and social turmoil touch every one of us in one way or another. Because we live in the information age we are inundated by news both good and bad, sometimes to the point of mental and emotional drowning. What with all of our digital gadgets and contraptions pinging, beeping, whirteling, chirping and buzzing at us with tweets, pokes, news, alerts and updates every few moments it is no wonder we as individuals and as a society are anxious to the point of breakdown. [Note: In the

time it took me to write that paragraph my smart phone pinged at me six times. OK, I checked it now. No disasters looming – yet.] It is a maddening thing to be clamped in the vise of the “should-have” and the “what if?” – on the one hand looking backward with longing or regret while in the same moment straining to see ahead with apprehension and tension, but never truly experiencing the present. That loss of the moment, that failure to perceive the richness of the present in whatever form it takes is guaranteed to steal our joy and rob us of any possibility of contentment.

But the fact is that there is nothing but the moment, the immediate present, over which we have any real control. That wisdom can be found in sayings from many religious traditions, but there is one bit of verse most of us have heard many times. In 1937 the American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr wrote a prayer poem which has come to carry almost as much weight as Holy Scripture. It is known as The Serenity Prayer.

But there is a solution to be found in faith. In the Gospel according to Matthew chapters 5 through 7, Jesus delivers the Sermon on the Mount. In those verses Jesus gives us an outline of how to live a full, contented and joyful life. The sermon is a collection of separate sayings, each of which has a wisdom all its own, but it is in reading and meditating on the message of the whole that we can truly hear Jesus’ full intention. As with any Jewish based scriptural form the primary point is found in God grant me the the middle.

TACS offers felted hat workshop March 31 with Vasanto You can create your own April fool’s cap by joining Vasanto for a day of foolish felting fun at Tryon Arts and Crafts School on March 31 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Start with a handmade felting geode, proceed to a wall hanging that can be turned into a flower and then finish with the fool’s cap. Learn the hat on a ball technique and felting basics in this day-long workshop. Make flaps, dangles and thingamajigs or keep it simple. In this workshop, students will learn felting methods that compress wool roving and create dense fabric that is used in hats and winter garments. Vasanto has been working with wool and color since she learned to knit as a child. She has been exploring spinning, dyeing, knitting, crocheting, weaving and felting wool fibers. “Wool is one of the first man-made fabrics. It is soft, rich, and extremely versatile,” said Vasanto. She began to felt by learning

to make hats from Beth Beede. Lately she has been “nunofelting,” which is felting onto woven silk, cotton or rayon. She has also studied with Pat Sparks, Inge Evers and Chad Hagen, among others. Vasanto teaches at SAFF, Friends and Fiberworks Winter Retreat and her home. She is a member of the Fiber Arts Alliance of Asheville and part of a

number of spinning and knitting groups. There will be a small materials fee per person to cover wool roving and other supplies. Advance registration for all workshops is required.

‘Grand’ breakfast at Sunny View Elementary

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Tryon Soup Kitchen, Feb. 11 Want to go? What: Tryon Soup Kitchen When: Feb. 11, 1 - 4 p.m. Where: Tryon Fire Dept.

Approximately 120 Sunny View students enjoyed breakfast with their grandparents before going to class on Friday, Jan. 20. Goodies for Grandparents is an annual event at Sunny View Elementary. School officials said the large turnout shows how residents value family and learning. Pictured are Carley Lawter (second grade) and Riley Lawter (fourth grade) with grandparents, Diane and Stanley Bailey. (photo submitted by Angela Hall)

Janet Jamison wrote the following poem to encourage people to attend the soup kitchen to be held Saturday, Feb. 11 from 1-4 p.m. at the Tryon Fire Department social hall: There’s something new for me and you, a free meal to bestow. Sit down and eat there or get it and go. Step up to the plate – don’t hesitate, bring every Susie or Joe, and watch our sense of community grow. – article submitted by Janet Jamison

Roberts named new medical director for Pavillon Treatment Center Dr. John Roberts has accepted the position of medical director for Pavillon Treatment Center in North Carolina. Having joined the clinical team in 2009 as Pavillon’s addiction psychiatrist, one of only a handful in the region, Dr. Roberts has become thoroughly familiar with the staff and the operation of Pavillon’s clinical and medical program. Thus the transition to medical director was a natural fit, said Anne Vance, CEO for Pavillon. Roberts replaces Dr.

Susan Holman, who is now in private practice but remains with Pavillon as a clinical advisor. Dr. Roberts is board-certified in psychiatry, neurology and addiction medicine. He received his doctor of medicine from Louisiana State University and completed his psychiatric residency, as well as fellowships in substance abuse and anxiety disorders, at the Medical University of South Carolina. He has nearly 20 years of experience serving as an as-

sistant professor of psychiatry at the Medical University of South Carolina. Pavillon is a not-for-profit residential and outpatient treatment center for substance abuse disorders. Its primary residential treatment center is located in Polk County and its full-service outpatient treatment center, as well as its sober living residence, is located in Greenville, S.C.
