State border change could make one Polk resident a South Carolina resident Polk County High School football players Cary Littlejohn and Jacob Painter will sign letters of intent to play college football next Wednesday, Feb. 29. Coach Bruce Ollis said Littlejohn would head to Catawba College, while Painter will head to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

The resurveying of the N.C./ S.C border may not affect the area much as a whole, but for one resident the change could be major. Fred Berlinger, who lives on Jackson Grove Road and has been a North Carolina resident for 15 years, is facing the possibility of being a South Carolina resident. Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson and commissioner Renée McDermott told the Polk County Board of Commissioners Monday, Feb. 20 about a state border commission meeting they attended in Rock Hill, S.C. The states of North and South (Continued on page 6)

Tryon resident paid town sewer fees without service for more than 20 years Town agrees to pay $1,987 in reimbursement by Leah Justice

A Tryon resident recently discovered after experiencing backed-up sewage in her home

TLT’s ‘A Little Night Music’ opens second weekend at TFAC “Later…when is later? All you ever hear is ‘Later, Henrik! Henrik, Later…” laments Henrik Egerman in Stephen Sondheim’s musical, “A Little Night Music.” The Tryon Little Theater’s production of the musical will perform for its second weekend beginning tonight. Henrik, a 19-year-old seminary student (played by Alex Tapp), finds himself unhappy in his surroundings. He is home from school, full of ideas and looking for someone to talk to. His father mostly ignores him, asking questions but never listening to the answers. His father’s new wife, although she has a strong fondness for him, prefers to tease instead of listening to him. His family’s maid seduces him for her own pleasure, patronizing him when he worries about the sinfulness of the act. Throughout the course of

the play, Henrik’s frustration builds as his family and life itself regularly tells him “later.” He begins to see clearly how others see themselves in the world. After he accuses his father and friends of making a mockery of life’s struggles, he comes to terms with his own truths, realizing that he is truly in love. These realizations begin, for Henrik, a series of events that will change the lives of the rest of the characters. Performances will be at the Tryon Fine Arts Center Feb. 24-26. Show times are 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday. To purchase tickets or for more information, call Tryon Little Theater at 828-859-2466 or stop by the box office at 516 S. Trade St., Tryon, Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. – article submitted by Mimi Alexander

“My lap isn’t one of the Devil’s snares,” Anne (Chelsea Rudisill) teases as Henrik (Alex Tapp) awkwardly returns her ball of yarn. Tonight begins the second weekend of Tryon Little Theater’s run of Stephen Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music” at the Tryon Fine Arts Center. (photo by Lorin Browning)

Welcome signs on Hwy. 176 at the N.C./S.C. border on the south side of Tryon. (photo by Leah Justice)

• State border (continued from page 1)

Carolina have created the N.C.S.C. State Boundary Commission, which is re-establishing the state line that was originally surveyed in the 1700s and has been re-surveyed several times, but without permanent markers. Other counties throughout the states, such as Mecklenburg and Union counties, have many properties that could change state residency, Whitson said. In Polk County, however, the new line may affect only five properties, with Berlinger’s being the only property threatened to change residency. Berlinger said he wants to continue to be a North Carolina resident, especially since he is 75 years old and is a practicing endocrinologist. “If I would have wanted to live in South Carolina, I would have done so 15 years ago,” said Berlinger. Berlinger received a letter this week from the border commission that included a map that Berlinger said shows the line going through his house. He owns approximately 65 acres, with approximately 40 acres in North Carolina and the rest in South Carolina. He said he is hoping because the line goes through his residence that he will be able to choose which state he resides in. Berlinger also said there’s a stone on his property with a line chipped in it indicating the state line that he is sure the surveyors did not see.

He said it would be a burden on him and others across the state to change residency, with new driver’s licenses and taxes and for him the possibility of having to gain a South Carolina license to practice medicine. He works at the Rutherford County Community Clinic. “I think the government is supposed to help their citizens, not hassle them and waste taxpayer money while doing it,” said Berlinger. Berlinger has sent a letter to the commission in hopes of staying in North Carolina. He said he feels the whole process is a waste of money just to move the line a few feet. McDermott told other commissioners that one man in the Mecklenburg County area has lived and run his fireworks and gas station business for years in South Carolina. The change will mean his property is now in North Carolina, which would mean his gas taxes will increase, and fireworks are not legal in North Carolina. Whitson suggested the border commission should include verbiage that residents who change states cannot ask for tax refunds and counties cannot ask for back taxes on the properties. McDermott credited Whitson for the suggestion, saying Whitson spotted some real difficulties that could come up with property taxes. Whitson said the new boundary will go to the state legislation next. Editor’s note: See the Bulletin’s website (www.tryondailybulletin. com) for maps showing the state line as determined through different surveys over the centuries.

Green Creek Fire Dept. receives $155K FEMA grant On Feb. 17, the Green Creek Volunteer Fire Department (GCVFD) was notified that it has been awarded the 2011 Assistance to Firefighters (AFG) Grant of $155,197 from FEMA. This was in the 10th round of awards from FEMA. FEMA awarded $147,438.00 and the remaining $7,759.00 will be paid by the fire department. This grant is for operations and safety for personal protective equipment. GCVFD will use the funding to replace outdated turnout gear used for fighting structural and vehicle fires. The department also plans

to replace outdated wildland fire gear that is used for forest/ brush fires. “This grant will ensure that each member will have the tools they need to respond in the event of a fire,” GCVFD officials said. “Most of the gear GCVFD currently has is outdated and needs to be replaced. Also this will provide gear for new members who have recently joined. This will help keep the volunteers safe with minimum expense to the fire department.” – article submitted by the Green Creek Volunteer Fire Department

Candidates line up for Henderson County sheriff Henderson County has no shortage of candidates seeking to replace outgoing sheriff Rick Davis, who was granted a medical disability retirement because of bipolar disorder. The Henderson County Republican Party will choose from 11 candidates before March 1, when Davis officially retires. The candidates are: Tim Brooks, a Henderson County Sheriff ’s Office bailiff; Ronnie Edwards, a DMV officer; Bill Fishburne, a real estate agent; Tim Griffin, a captain with the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office; Michael Thomas James, police chief in Spencer, N.C.; Charles “Rusty” Jones, a N.C. Highway Patrol officer; Marty Katz, a retired officer from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Florida; Charlie McDonald, a retired Hen-

derson County Sheriff’s Office captain; Ben McKay, a jail officer in Henderson County; Frank Stout, a retired N.C. Highway Patrol captain, and Larry Young, a member of the Henderson County Board of Commissioners. D a v i s worked for the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office since 1990, and he became sheriff in 2006. On Nov. 23, 2011 he announced he had bipolar disorder that caused erratic behavior. He has been on sick leave since then. Henderson County commissioners began requesting more information from Davis about his condition and a $5,000 insurance policy deductible the county had to pay as part of a settlement involving

Davis and a female employee. Davis did not respond to their requests. He recently was granted a medical disability retirement by the state. – source: www.citizen-times. com, 2/17/12

*** A foreclosure auction has been set for March 5 to sell some property in The Cliffs Communities and pay off some of the development’s debts. Jim Anthony, the founder and owner of The Cliffs Communities, recently announced plans to sell most of the development, including The Cliffs golf courses and amenities and most of the residential properties, to the Carlile Group, owned by a Texas couple.

The foreclosure auction will help Anthony pay off $24.2 million in debt owed to Worthington Hyde Partners, a real estate investment firm in Atlanta. The auction is expected to include tracts of 26 and 451 acres. – source: Asheville Citizen Times, 2/16/12 *** AT&T announced plans for a $200 million data center in Kings Mountain, N.C. that will create more than 100 full-time jobs.

*** Two sections of the Blue Ridge Parkway between Asheville and Cherokee will be closed during the off-season for repairs to two tunnels. The National Park Service advised the sections will be closed between Feb. 20 and April 15. The section of the parkway between mileposts 393.8 and 405 will be closed to repair Ferrin Knob Tunnel No. 1, and the section between milepost 443 and the end of the parkway at U.S. 441 will be closed to repair Big Witch Tunnel. Some sections of the parkway are also closed during the winter as warranted by weather conditions. – source: Asheville Blue Ridge Examiner, 2/14/12 *** North Carolina is one of the least safe states in the country for teen drivers, according to a new report from the Governors Highway Safety Association. The association’s figures show North Carolina was the second deadliest state for teen drivers in 2011, trailing only Texas. The Tar Heel State saw an increase in the number of teen driver fatalities between 2010 and 2011, a trend that the association attributed to driver distractions. Cathy Hein, spokesperson for AAA Carolina, said a lack of enforcement may be an even bigger cause. – source: www.charlotte. news14.com, 2/17/12 *** Apple is planning to build the largest end-user-owned solar array in the country to supports its new data center in Maiden, N.C. The company says the array will help reduce the environmental impact of the center, which has received the LEED Platinum certification. The company says it also plans to build the largest nonutility fuel cell installation in the country to ensure a high percentage of renewable energy for the data center. Catawba County approved a permit to let Apple reshape the slope of 171 acres for the solar array across from the data center. – source: www.iclarified.com, 2/20/12

data center in Kings Mountain will be located on 130 acres in a business park that already includes a Walt Disney Co. data center. The region is also home to a Google data center in Lenior, an Apple Inc. data center in Maiden and a planned Facebook Inc. data center in Rutherford County. Industry officials say low electric rates and access to water to cool the facilities have helped attract the data centers. – sources: N.C. Department of Commerce, 2/22/12; Charlotte Business Journal, 2/22/12 *** The site of the former Tuxedo Mill is expected to become the first public park in the Green River community of eastern Henderson County. The county recently purchased the six-acre site with a plan to work with local residents to develop a family-oriented park. Henderson County demolished the old mill that had been an eyesore on the site for years. The Green River Association says it’s already making plans for a community fundraising effort to create the new park. – source: Hendersonville Times News, 2/20/12 *** The City of Asheville is completing renovation work on the U.S. Cellular Center just in time for the Southern Conference Basketball Championship, which will bring many visitors to the facility between March 2 and March 5. John Iamarino, commissioner of the Southern Conference, said he’s been in close contact with architect Sam Powers and other officials to make sure the work will be done in time. The arena, opened in 1974, will have a new scoreboard and message ribbon on the upper-deck balcony. The seating capacity is 6,600 for basketball games. The Southern Conference and the city have a three-year contract to hold the tournament at the U.S. Cellular Center. – source: Asheville Citizen Times, 2/19/12

Compassionate, personal care with every visit. Barbara and Don Krumpe relocated to Lake Lure 10 years ago, their plans didn’t include surgeries and trips to the emergency room. But when they needed medical services, they chose to obtain them through Rutherford Regional Health System. “We never even considered going anywhere else,” Barbara says. “Once we started coming to Rutherford Regional, we never had a reason to go anywhere else.” The doctors, nurses and staff go the extra mile to ensure patients feel safe and comfortable. “It’s a cut above what we were used to in a bigger city,” Barbara says. “Bigger is not always better,” adds Don. At Rutherford Regional Health System, we offer personalized care for every stage in your life.

Moving forward for your health.

Booze with breakfast foods or unpleasant comments Note to self: never, ever, drink Chardonnay with pancakes again. Ever. Well, you see, I’m a “Whiskeypalian” Anglican, and for our church functions, there are usually a few bottles of wine available, next to the tea and coffee. However, at our annual ‘Shrove Tuesday’ Pancake Supper this past week, the offering also included pitchers of orange juice, tea and coffee and, naturally, the obligatory bottles of ‘Yellowtail’ wine. The problem was, I was too stupid to notice the tea and coffee on the other side of the parish hall. I stood in line to prepare a plate, first, for my mother, by the time I re-entered the que and filled my own plate with trimmings that would rival a great IHOP breakfast, the pitchers of orange juice were empty.

Organ donation: You’re never too old Dear Savvy Senior Is there an age limit on being an organ donor? At age 73, I’m interested in being a donor when I die, but am wondering if they would still want my organs. What can you tell me, and what do I need to do to sign up? ~ Willing But Old Dear Willing, There’s no defined cutoff age for being an organ donor. In fact, there are many people well up into their 80s that donate. The decision to use your organs is based on health, not age, so don’t disqualify yourself prematurely. Let the doctors decide at your time of death whether your organs and tissues are suitable for transplantation. Donating facts In the United States alone, more than 112,000 people are on the waiting list for organ transplants. But because the demand is so much greater than the supply, those on the list routinely wait three to seven years for an organ, and more than 6,500 of them die each year. Organs that can be donated include the kidneys (which are in the greatest demand with more than 90,000 on the waiting list), liver, lungs, heart, pancreas and intestines. Tissue is also needed to replace bone, tendons and ligaments. Corneas are needed to restore sight. Skin grafts help burn patients heal and often mean the difference between life and death. And heart valves repair cardiac defects and damage. How to donate If you would like to become a donor, there are several steps you should take to ensure your wishes are carried out, including: Registering: Add your name to your state or regional organ and tissue donor registry. You can do this online at either donatelife.net or organdonor.gov. Both sites provide links to all state registries. If you don’t have Internet access, you can call your local organ procurement organi-

zation and ask them to mail you a donor card, which you can fill out and return. To get the phone number of your local organization, call Donate Life America at 800-355-7427. Identify yourself: Designate your decision to become an organ donor on your driver’s license, which you can do when you go in to renew it. If, however, you don’t drive anymore or if your renewal isn’t due for a while, consider getting a state ID card – this also lets you indicate you want to be a donor. You can get an ID card for a few dollars at your nearby driver’s license office. Tell your family: Even if you are a registered donor, in many states family members have the ultimate say whether your organs may be donated after you die. So clarify your wishes to your family. It’s also a good idea to tell your doctors and add it to your advance directives. These are legal documents that include a living will and medical power of attorney that spell out your wishes regarding your end-oflife medical treatment when you can no longer make decisions for yourself. If you don’t have an advance directive, go to caringinfo. org or call 800-658-8898 where you can get free state-specific forms with instructions to help you make one. For more information on organ and tissue donation and transplantation, visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Donate the Gift of Life website at organdonor.gov. Also see the United Network for Organ Sharing at unos.org, and transplantliving.org which offers information on being a living donor. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

children some personal things outside of my estate plan? A. Yes, we have had clients be very creative in the ways they choose to communicate with their loved ones after they are gone. My own uncle left a very touching and inspirational letter to each of his sons. I have had clients leave detailed letters outlining their wishes for future generations, their values and philosophy of life. Several have even videotaped their messages to children and grandchildren. Many of these messages have been quite well done and much appreciated by the recipients.
