Green Piece show finds artistic value in discarded items by Samantha Hurst

Gallery space at the Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS) location off Maple Street showcases works fashioned from rusted tools, scrap mesh, wine corks, bottle caps, sticks woven together and crocheted plastic bags. All of the works are part of TPS’ Green Piece show, which will run through March 31, said TPS President Aviva Kahn. “It’s fun, I think, for the people who come because they have to really look at some of the works and they are intrigued by them,� Kahn said. Capturing first place in the table sculpture category was Clark Loro’s “Moby Dick’s (Continued on page 3)

Some commissioners want elevation removed from MRPO Planning board to discuss using slope only by Leah Justice

Polk County’s Mountainside and Ridgeline Protection Ordinance (MRPO) is currently based on both slope and elevation, but some com-

missioners are now asking that the ordinance be based strictly on slope after hearing numerous concerns over the elevation restrictions. The Polk County Board of Commissioners met Monday, March 5 and (Continued on page 6)

Revenge.” Loro moved here from New York to be near his mother. He said one day, not long after arriving, he took her dogs for a walk as a refreshing therapy from living in the city for so long. While doing so he began noticing all of the beautiful pieces of wood filling the area behind her home. He said the particular piece used for “Moby Dick’s Revenge” spoke to him. “I just liked the shape of it initially – it was huge and I had to dig it out of the ground and put it in a wheelbarrow to bring it out of the woods,” he said. Loro left the wood in his mother’s garage for about a year to dry out before he really began to work with it. He said the first aspect he noticed was a notch on one side, which im(Continued on page 4)

rest of the wood brought to mind the image of a whale and then the ocean. Before long the story of Moby Dick was conjured up as his direction. “I just like to stare at things for a long time and ideas usually come out of them,” Loro said. “My whole philosophy of what I’ve been trying to do here is to create something out of nothing. All I have to do is appreciate what it could become.” Taking apart a storage shed provided materials for the framework for the ship and thrift store type material fashioned the sails. Grabbing first place for hanging sculpture was Lindsey Moore’s “Guiness the Guppy.” As a landscape and portrait and graphic artist, Moore said this piece was different from his typical work. “I really enjoyed the creative challenge because it made me simplify down to the elements of the materials I used, but I also put more thought into it than I thought I would,” Moore said. He said the theme was based on a piece of an old wine crate, which serves as the base of the piece. Since it was curved Moore said he felt it lent itself to the form of a fish. Before long it all came together. “As more of a visual artist for painting it really made me look at things from a three-dimensional frame,” he said. “I am very just very pleased and honored to be a part of the show.” “Guiness the Guppy” showcases the image of a guppy made from the end of a broom, an old neon orange work glove, clothespins and paintbrushes. Kahn said the Green Piece show required all artworks to use nothing but recycled materials – things the artist was going to throw away otherwise – or

found objects. Tryon Painters and Sculptors held a similar show just a few years back. Kahn said a close friend sparked the idea when she took an old chair and through decoupage covered it with National Geographic covers. TPS ran with that thought in mind and decided to host a recycled materials show. “People get excited because it makes them aware of the environment,” Kahn said. “It makes you think about what we’re throwing away and what can really be used to create art of real value.” Kahn said Bernard Eiserloh, for example, who placed in the show, usually creates beautifully symmetrical ironwork pieces but with this project he stretched his creativity. Eiserloh’s piece in this show is more whimsical and far from strictly symmetrical as it has unique curves and twists in the metal and even has moving parts. Eiserloh’s piece is one of many from the show that have already sold. The show itself was rated as a people’s choice meaning that attendees voted on their favorite pieces. Placing in the pedestal/floor category were second place winner Eiserloh with his scrap metal work entitled “Super Forest Fire Fighter” and third place finisher Mike Seagle with his mixed media piece, “Bomb Flyte.” Placing in the hanging category were Catherine Gurri with her second-place mixed media work, “Tortured Souls,” and third place winner Diana Gurri with her mixed media piece, “Artemis.” The show will run through March 31. TPS is open every Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., but Kahn said interested art lovers could also come by to see the works when the gallery is open for classes. Those times are Tuesdays-Fridays from 9:30 a.m. – noon.

ects,” Johnson said. “In other words, they are projects that can actually produce results and not pie-in-the-sky ideas.” To accomplish specific goals the committee is then broken down into three subcommittees – business and entrepreneurial development, technology and websites and tourism development and media coordination. Business and entrepreneurial development Miksa-Blackwell said the business and entrepreneurial development subcommittee is focused on efforts related to Polk County’s Certified Entrepreneurial Community designation. It took two years to get the certification from AdvantageWest, she said. This designation means the county has mapped its assets and developed a plan to assist entrepreneurs in their business endeavors. What they found in the process surprised them, MiksaBlackwell said. Another manageable goal the committee has worked to develop is a home builder’s resource directory. This directory will include listings of local contractors, painters, landscapers, etc. Once published it will be mailed to the 3,000 out-of-town property owners who have homes in Polk County. “The goal behind this was to stir up some work for [the contractors] now, not wait until the economy gets better and better and better, which could take years,” Johnson said. Technology and websites committee “The purpose of [the technology and websites subcommittee] is to help us as a community to develop all the technology we need to attract people to Polk County,” Jones said. Jones said things have happened very swiftly over the last few years in regard to the way people gather information. She said this subcommittee wants to

use technology in the most effective manner to promote what is available locally. Caudle said the primary focus would be to solicit responses from vendors locally, regionally and internationally to ensure the right people are getting the right information. This would mean, he said, integrating blogging and a social media presence on sites like Facebook and Twitter. “We need to make sure we are properly positioned in all of

those places in a way that makes sure people can find us,” Caudle said. “Especially in markets like Atlanta, Charlotte and Charleston – if someone is looking to visit the mountains or start a new business in a new location, we want to make sure when they begin those searches that they find Polk County and they consider us as an option.” To do this the committee will be looking at ways to drive more people to the tourism and



economic development websites. He said the key is making sure people stay on the websites long enough to find out what the county does have to offer both locally and within close enough proximity to stay and eat here, but also visit other regional attractions. Carey spoke about how the board would work toward developing more tourism business (Continued on page 13)

‘Knock, Knock’ coming to TLT Cast announced

A kooky comedy in the absurdist tradition is coming to the Tryon Little Theater (TLT) Workshop. Scenic designer Richard Sharkey is designing a set for “Knock, Knock,” by Jules Feiffer, the farce now in rehearsals for a mid April opening. Sharkey’s assignment is to create a performance space that allows two holes to be blown out of the back walls. In addition, characters die and are resurrected, then vanish and reappear in a puff of smoke. Sharkey has an extensive background in technical theater at the university level and professional credits. Playwright Jules Feiffer is a renowned cartoonist, screenwriter and author, whose Pulitzer Prize winning cartoon strip ran for 40 years in “The Village Voice.” Feiffer authored more than 35 books, plays and film scripts. He is the recipient of numerous awards and honors including the Academy Award for his short animated film, “Monro.” His most recent books are his memoir, “Backing into Forward,” and the children’s book “My Side of the Car” with Kate Feiffer. Frances McCain will direct “Knock, Knock.” McCain first appeared as an actress for TLT in 1972’s “Lovely Ladies, Kind Gentlemen.” Since then, “buckets of grease paint flowed” into her veins, keeping her coming back year after year, not only as an actress performing in 30 or more productions, but in every aspect of the theater. McCain’s favorite roles have included Annie Nations in “Foxfire,” Truvy in “Steel Magnolias,” and Gloria in “Everybody Loves Opal.” Her directing credits for TLT include “Raney,” “The Moving of Lila Barton,” the revival of “Everybody Loves Opal,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “The Miss Firecracker Contest,” “You Can’t Take It with You” and “Steel Magnolias.” When asked to describe

“Knock, Knock,” McCain laughed. “Alice in Wonderland meets The Wizard of Oz!” she said. “It’s a miracle play, told all in fantasy. I had to read it twice to believe what I was reading. There are so many laugh-out-loud, genuinely funny moments.” The synopsis goes something like this: Two cranky Yankees, Abe and Cohn, who have lived together for the last 20 years, are sitting around bored and bickering, when they hear a “knock-knock” on the door. In walks Joan of Arc, in the flesh, armor and all. Of course Joan is accompanied by her meddling voices, loud and manipulative. But wait, there’s more. Joan tells of a past life as Cinderella. She goes on to explain her assignment this go-around is to recruit two of every species for a ride to heaven (Continued on page 23)

on a spaceship. Starring as the atheistic, agoraphobic Cohn, an unemployed musician who longs for intelligent conversation, will be Elvin Clark. Clark is appearing as an actor in his 23rd TLT production, dating back to 1983, when he was, by his own account, Tryon’s version of a male ingenue. “Needless to say, the bloom fell off that rose some time ago!” quipped Clark. Some of his favorite roles have been Pseudolus in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” Arthur in “Camelot” and Harding in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” He has appeared in productions with the Warehouse Theater, the Upstate Shakespeare Festival, Hendersonville Little Theater and the Belfry Players. For TLT, Elvin has also directed “Grace and Glory,” “Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol,” “Lost in Yonkers” and “Into the Woods.” The other half of this odd couple will be Tryon actor Lavin Cuddihee, as Abe, the agnostic ex-stockbroker, and adamant rationalist. This is Cuddihee’s seventh production and third season with Tryon Little Theater. His favorite performances include “The Sound of Music” as Captain Georg von Trapp; “Little Shop of Horrors” as the masochistic dentist, Orin Scrivello; “Our Leading Lady” as Harry Hawk; “Oliver!” as Fagin and his all-time favorite, R.P. McMurphy in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” with Elvin Clark. “Elvin and I haven’t performed together since ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ so I figured it was time.” Cuddihee has also performed locally in Greenville at Centre Stage, The Warehouse and Greenville Little Theater. This past season he also had the pleasure of directing his first production, “My Three Angels,” for TLT. Cuddihee received his theatrical training at Webster University

in St. Louis, Mo. and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. Playing Joan of Arc will be Nancy Winker, who last performed for TLT in the musical “Oliver!” and “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).” Chris Bartol will play the role of Wiseman, originally played on Broadway by Judd Hirsch. Bartol has appeared frequently on the TLT stage, most notably in “Driving Miss Daisy” as Boolie, “The Odd Couple” (female version) as Manolo Costazuela, “A Thousand Clowns” as Leo, a.k.a. Chuckles the Chipmunk, “Uproar in the House,” “Mornings at Seven,” “First Monday in October” and “Little Shop of Horrors,” to name just a few performances. Bartol grew up in Tryon and then moved away for college and career, returning in 1986. Cast as the Messenger and supporting roles will be Joshua Moffitt, a familiar face on the TLT stage. Audiences will remember from him from “Done to Death,” “Oliver!,” “Clue - the Musical,” “My Three Angels” and most recently in “A Little Night Music.” Continuing a cameo career, with 11 lines, as the voice of the policeman is Landrum resident Lorin Browning. His theatrical career began in 1949, when he played the smallest billy goat in “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” He was absent from the stage for 55 years until he appeared in TLT’s “State Fair” in 2004, where he delivered his one line with flair. Browning declaimed three lines as the Fourth Man in “To Kill a Mockingbird” and seven lines in “Little Shop of Horrors.” “Knock, Knock” will play at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 19 22 and April 26 - 29. Tickets will be on sale beginning April 5. For more information call the Tryon Little Theater box office at 828-859-2466 or visit www.tltinfo.org. – article submitted by Mark Monaghan

Local spin at the Mill Spring Ag Center The Southern Appalachian Fiber Community was started to preserve the agricultural traditions of fiber production – spinning, weaving, plant growing and animal husbandry. The group is intended to weave together the artisans who create in the media of fiber with one another and with the sources of the fiber, local farmers. There is a large base of people raising fiber animals in Western North Carolina. In addition, people grow plants for fiber and dye stuff. The group had its first field trip to North Wood’s alpaca farm and fiber mill, where participants got to see the animals in the fields and follow the process from fleece to yarn. They learned how fiber was processed for felting as well. On another occasion, one of the members showed participants how to use kudzu vines to weave quirky free-form baskets that had their own unique character. With more than 30 members, the group began at the Mill

The group now meets monthly on the second Tuesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the ag center. Anyone working in some way with fiber, or who raises fiber animals or plants, or just interested in fiber is encouraged to attend. Meetings are divided into several sections: an idea session, planning for future activities or events and a short demonstration by one of the members. The demonstrations are designed to enhance participants’ creativity by helping them acquire multiple techniques and broaden their horizons. One of the goals of our group is to organize a farm and fiber tour, where artists will be paired with the farmers raising fiber animals or growing fiber and dye plants. The artists will demonstrate techniques using the farmers’ products if possible. (Continued on page 24)

Lady Cardinals look to build off Region II-1A championship by Joey Millwood

Landrum took its first step in defending its Region II-1A championship on Wednesday night. The Lady Cardinals wasted no time in making a statement in a blowout of Greenville Tech Charter. The Cardinals (1-1, 1-0) beat the Warriors 23-0 in their Region II-1A opener. Landrum lost a tough game to Woodruff earlier in the week 10-4 and this game was just what the doctor ordered, head coach Tucker Hamrick said. “It was a good confidence booster for my girls,” he said. “It was great to come back out and play solid defense and offense.” The Warriors were in trouble early. The Cardinals waited patiently in the batter’s box and Warrior pitcher Annie Cloonan pitched herself into a box. Taylor Wahler, Lauren Pitts and Jordan Farmer all drew walks to start the game. Cloonan retired Bre Cuff, but then walked Taylor Jenkins. Some of the damage had already been done, however. Wahler stole two bases and scored on a ball that got passed Warrior catcher Allison Corn. Pitts and Farmer both scored on pass balls. Shelby Morris followed with a double down the left field line

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. Is there a way I can tell my children?

Q. Is there a way I can tell my

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.

A day of joy Before I begin this tale of doing something I don’t get to do often enough, though the offer is always there for me, I wish to extend my thanks about something that moved me deeply. I’ve received countless cards, emails and personal condolences for my tribute to Allie. I want you all to know that I read every word to her. Though all were beautifully expressed, one in particular struck at the core of my heart. It said, “Death can never take away what love has already given you.” Except for a few minor loose ends which I seem to have every day, I put the whole day aside last week to visit Sue and Richard Wallahora. I needed a day to be selfish and these wonderful friends and supporters of mine were not only willing, they were anxious to comply. Richard and Sue are in possession of Gizmo, one of my original Special cases written in June of 07. By the way, Richard, I’ve done the math and Gizmo will be 5 years old this month. The pup had been tossed from a vehicle and had a broken hip and leg on one side and a stick fracture on the other, both rear legs. We had labeled him a lab mix, but today we have a whole new description of him. At 3 months old he weighed in at about 8 pounds and the playful little guy tore at all our hearts. Casts and splints were put on him and the ball joint from his hip had to be removed. Dr. Maiola at Landrum vet did all the work for free as my very first gift to the Urgent care fund, which is now Lennie’s fund. Gizmo today is now nearing 90 pounds and is deemed a Plothound Great Dane mix. He has retained all the love and playfulness he had as a pup and the boy runs like a deer. Along with Gizmo, the Wallahora’s have two older dogs and Treasure, who is now Gracie, a little Boston terrier mix who was another of my kids. On my visit my first attention was given to the two older dogs

Lennie and Gizmo

Angelique and her pups

because we never know how long we’ll have them and I want them to know they’ll always be loved. Gizmo trotted over, sat down at my feet and looked up at me lovingly with his one blue eye and one brown eye. As I knelt down and wrapped my arms around him, Richard tearfully exclaimed, “He never forgets you, Lennie.” “I know Richard,” I answered, “he’s always in heart too.” Meanwhile, Gracie the Boston terrier was on her back kicking her feet in the air making pretty. I went over to rub her tummy, “I love you too darling.” We went outside for a little more running and playing and then came the time to make this visit complete.

Richard and Susan often foster and a beautiful 2 year old girl had been brought into F.H.S. on Feb. 4th, two days after her newborn pups were located. The seven pups were brought to the shelter about a week old and I was there when mom was brought to nurture them. My heart got lodged in my throat when I saw her. She turned out to be wonderful with people and the most loving, caring and perfect mom and thus was aptly named Angelique. The Wallahora’s have a beautiful large area for such occasions with a whelping crate that has plenty of room. My heart was pounding (Continued on page 29)

Elaine Rizzo and Angelique and her pups

• Day of joy (continued from page 28)

as we headed to see her and the pups. My wife, Elaine, whom I brought along, was about to meet Angelique for the first time. When we opened the door

Angelique went into her dance of joy as puppies scampered all around her. Elaine just gasped as tear of joy rolled down my cheeks, for you see, Angelique looks and acts like my Allie when she was much younger. You may or may not remember




but I had flashbacks of when John the Great Dane sent me Jeremiah. We can never know for sure but you can never convince me that Allie didn’t have a hand in this. The time spent in that room with puppies crawling all over

me and Angelique licking my face was utterly joyous and thoroughly healing. Upon leaving I said goodbye to my boy Gizmo, then looked up to the heavens and whispered, “Thank you Allie, I won’t forget you.” Thanks for listening.

Computer-free video calling helps seniors stay connected Dear Savvy Senior Can you recommend any easy-to-use products for video calling? I live in a different state from my mother, who’s now 78, and would like to see her more often. But mom doesn’t have a computer or a smartphone for video chatting and she’s intimidated with technology. ~ Living Afar Dear Living, Video calling is a wonderful way to stay connected and get that important face-to-face time with your mom when you can’t be there. Here are some good video calling products to consider for technologychallenged seniors who don’t use a computer. Home Videophones If you’re not familiar with them, home videophones are a nice option and very easy for seniors to use. Basically, they work like a regular telephone

but come with a built-in camera and video screen that gives you the ability to see the person you’re talking to in real-time. All you need is a high speed (DSL or Cable) Internet connection and you’re ready to go. While there are various types and styles of videophones on the market today, some possible options to consider are the Grandstream 3140 and VoSKY videophones that work with Skype (see skype.com) – a free software application that lets you make free video calls via the Internet. Retailing anywhere between $150 and $250, the big advantage of using a Skype certified videophone is that after you purchase it, there are no monthly service fees to use it. Skypeto-Skype video calls are completely free, and you can use your personal computer (if you

have a webcam), Android smartphone or tablet, iPhone, iPad or Mac to call your mom’s videophone (and vise versa), which means you don’t have to buy a second videophone to converse with her like you do with other services. These videophones will also let your mom make unlimited calls to other landlines and mobile phones in the U.S. and Canada for only $3 per month. To learn more or to purchase these products visit amazon.com or shop.skype.com/phones. Another good product to check out is WorldGate’s Ojo Vision Digital Videophone which you can buy through ACN (myacn.com/digital, 877226-1010) as the IRIS 5000 Video Phone. With a bright 7-inch LCD screen and excellent audio and video capabilities, this videophone is a higher grade product than the Skype phones, but it’s more expensive. The cost: $179 for the phone with a two-year contract and a $30 monthly service fee for unlimited calling. This phone will also only let you place video calls to other Ojo/IRIS videophones. That means that you and your mom will each have to buy your own phone in order to video chat with each other, which adds to your costs. TV Video Calls

Savvy Senior

Another great option you need to know about are the new “TV compatible webcams” that have a built-in HD camera, speakers and microphones that will turn your mom’s TV into a videophone – no computer required. She will, however, need a television set with an HDMI port (most HDTVs have them) and wireless Internet access installed in her home to uses one of these devices. If she has an older TV that doesn’t have an HDMI port, converter boxes can be purchased for around $50 to adapt most sets. If you like this option, check out the Biscotti TV Phone (biscotti.com), a new product that costs $199 and, at the press of a button, will let your mom make and receive unlimited free video calls from her TV, to any computer, smartphone or tablet that uses Google video chat (google.com/chat/video) or to other Biscotti owners. Or, if youa’re a Skype user, consider the new telyHD webcam (tely.com). This device costs $250 and works similarly to the Biscotti, but provides its free video calling via Skype. 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.
