Pilot for SyFy Channel to film in Landrum by Samantha Hurst

Cameras are set to roll through Landrum in April as a production crew films a pilot called “Distraction” for the SyFy channel in and around the city. Writer and producer Jeff Prince of Green Giant Media

said he settled on Landrum for the production because he felt the town gives a true feeling of Americana. “I really wanted that perfect Main Street look,” Prince said. “A lot of the downtowns are not as well-kept or thriving as

Law enforcement kicks off community policing meetings Sunny View meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. by Leah Justice

Local law enforcement officers began community police meetings Tuesday, March 13 in Columbus to work with residents to protect neighborhoods. The Columbus meeting drew only one resident, Doug Bridges, who was representing the Camp Skyuka Homeowners Association. Deputy Ronnie Russell with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and Officer JJ Sauve with the Tryon Police Department talked about how residents can get involved and reviewed safety tips, including information for seniors and domestic violence victims. The officers also reviewed what services are currently available through local law enforcement. Other officers involved in the community police meetings and training are Sgt. Nick Stott with the Columbus Police Department and Officer Brent Cantrell with the Saluda Police Department. “Community policing is citizens and law enforcement working together to try to prevent and solve crimes,” Sauve said. Russell said local officers want to work with residents to help train them to set up neighborhood watches. He said community watch groups help officers by being the eyes and ears

of a neighborhood and by helping neighbors in situations that don’t involve law enforcement. Community watches may involve having trustworthy people in the neighborhood knowing who is out of town at what time and giving a house key to a community watch captain or member. All local law enforcement departments also have a house check, where officers will patrol a house when a resident is out of town and check doors and windows to make sure there has been no suspicious activity. Russell said community watches are helpful in solving crimes because an officer may patrol an area and think nothing of a certain vehicle being there but neighbors know which vehicles belong and which might be suspicious. “Without cooperation between residents and law enforcement a lot of these crimes can’t be solved,” Russell said. “You are eventually our eyes and ears.” Russell also said that community watch is not a vigilante group. Officers said residents should not take the law in their own hands. “Taking the law in your own hands is not what we want,” Russell said. “We don’t want you to put yourself in harm’s way. Call us.” The community policing idea began when Sauve and Russell (Continued on page 7)

master plan developed by Brady/ Trakas for the Town of Tryon and the Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA). The upgrades include sidewalks, lighting, drainage, asphalt and landscaping. Improved connectivity is one end goal. The project is expected to impact jobs creation, an integral part of this grant award. “The Depot Plaza project builds capacity upon recently completed renovations to the Tryon Depot,” Armbrust said. “Again, private/public investment plays a central role. With the MSSF grant project, Dr. John Hooker’s new building construction on the Depot Plaza provides the required two-to-one match. That match was exceeded significantly here; the total grant project detailed a $525,000 new building construction as a private match and a $150,000 grant request.” Armbrust said Tryon’s recent N.C. Rural Center Economic Innovation grant – which, among other items, funded the Depot Plaza master plan – and Tryon’s designation as a Small Town Main Street program both played a decisive role in the MSSF

attended Gillette Woods community watch meetings in Tryon. Sauve said following that, officers decided to get everyone in the county on the same page with the same training. Local law enforcement has also been working to get the Foothills Crimestoppers reorganized as the phone line is currently not available. Officers said they are willing to train individual neighborhoods and will agree to meet in someone’s home if necessary to train residents. Officers also have a program to do home and business security assessments, in which a trained officer will give a home or business owner tips to make a building more secure.

One of the wonderful things about being a priest in Tryon is the fact that so many of us are animal lovers with pets large and small, and that we have such an abundance of wildlife to enjoy up close (and sometimes personal). I have the honor of being the occasional chaplain to several of our horse and hound sporting groups and so I get to see the devoted love and care members of our several communities lavish on their horses, dogs, cats, birds and other assorted critters. I have been asked, and readily agree, to come pray for a sick horse or dog or more than a few times, and I have known owners to go to exhausting extremes of self-sacrifice for a beloved animal. So, where do we learn to do that? How do we learn to

love the creatures entrusted to our care so well? In short, I believe it is a reflection of the same unconditional love that God extends to each one of us. Think about it for a moment. When we really and truly love an animal, especially if it is a lifelong companion, we give it our love openly and freely and we accept in return whatever bits of affection we get in return. That is not to say that every person-pet relationship is without conflict. A well chewed pair of expensive new shoes can cause quite a rift, but we usually forgive them their trespasses and try to teach them to do better. Sound familiar? As profound and yet flawed as our love for our pets may be, it is the tiniest and dimmest reflection of the love God has (Continued on page 9)

WCCR presents the ‘Whistler’ March 19 at ICC Polk Campus The Western Carolina Classic Radio Club will meet Monday, March 19 at 2 p.m. in Studio 118 at the Polk Campus of Isothermal Community College. Columbia Pictures produced eight “Whistler” moves from 1944 – 1948, with each starring Richard Dix in various roles.

At Monday’s meeting, “The Strange Case of the Haunted Lighthouse,” from 1945, will be shown. The “Whistler” radio show aired on CBS from May 16, 1942 to Sept. 22, 1955 with one of radio’s best-known crime-show formats. “I am the Whistler,

and I know many things, for I walk by night,” is a well-known phrase from the show. Professor Hoyt will be on hand to keep everyone guessing with his trivia quiz. Around 3:05 p.m., WOTJ will take the “microphone.” The popular jazz series from

last month will continue with Esquire Magazine’s 1944 AllStar Jazz Band and the addition of Benny Goodman and the band playing a whole new set of selections. Everyone is welcome and it is free. – article submitted

Puppet show at grand opening of Mill Spring Ag Center auditorium Teens! What are you going to do with them? One minute they are listening to strange music, the next minute they are texting while driving or being swallowed into the underworld. Wait. What? Only if you are in a Greek myth, that is. In the story of Persephone a young maiden is out picking flowers one day when she is abducted into the underworld. Without the convenience of a cell phone she can’t call her mom, Demeter, the

Harvest Goddess. Demeter, saddened, cannot care for the plants and winter spreads over the land while Persephone is off having her own adventures in the underworld. Once Persephone returns, the delighted Demeter brings the plants back to life and the first spring arrives. This ancient myth will be told through spectacular puppets, song and dance at the Mill Spring Ag Center on Friday, March 16 at 7 p.m. at the newly renovated Ag

Jim Wiprut, H.I.S.

Center Auditorium. Mike Odle, Master Gardener, organic farmer at CooperRiis and cofounder of The Art Farm with his wife, Finn, has presented shows like this in the past but “not such a large undertaking as this one,” he said. Gilberto Sibrian, a WWOOF (Willing Workers on Organic Farms Volunteer), joined CooperRiis in January. He and the Odles came up with the idea for the show. Sibrian, a former intern at

the Paperhand Puppet Intervention Theater in Chapel Hill, N.C., brought with him his experience at building the large papier maché puppets that are used throughout the show. The show is open to the public for a small fee at the door. Popcorn and snacks will be sold as well. Donations will go to the Ag Center auditorium and to the CooperRiis scholarship fund. - article submitted by Mike Odle
