• Meth bust (continued from page 1)

Tuesday, May 8, a sheriff’s officer was dispatched to the Blackstock Road residence following a complaint. There had been reports that propane bottles, batteries, pseudoephedrine, bottles with tubing and what was believed to be marijuana were seen in the home, according to the police report. While officers were on the scene, a Toyota pickup truck pulled into the driveway and turned around, so officers initiated a traffic stop and gained consent to search the residence. The officers found a gun located in the glove box, according to the report. Found outside the home was a burn pile that included lithium batteries, burnt pseudoephedrine boxes, burnt drink bottles and coffee filters, the report states. Several items commonly used to make methamphetamine were located in several rooms of the home,

including bottles with pink or white residue, Coleman fuel containers, bottles with white crystal substance inside and tubing, a box of salt, white pills, lithium batteries, pseudoephedrine boxes as well as other chemicals common to make methamphetamine. Officers also found a handwritten note on a coffee filter about methamphetamine production material, according to the police report. “I recognized from my training and experience these items as consistent with those associated

with the illegal production of methamphetamine commonly known as the ‘shake and bake’ method,” states the report. A rifle and a shotgun were also located inside the home, according to the report. The sheriff’s office contacted the South Carolina Law Enforce-

ment Division for clean-up purposes, with Advanced Environmental Options, Inc. responding to the scene for clean up and removal. Johnson and Medlock each received $20,000 bonds and as of Wednesday afternoon were still being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.

Col. Sanders named teacher of year at Landrum High Col. Robert Sanders, LTC (Ret. U.S. Army) and senior instructor of the ROTC program at Landrum High School, was recently named Teacher of the Year at Landrum High. Sanders said the mission of ROTC is to motivate young people in the program to be better citizens. All the cadets are recognized for their achievements in academics, fitness, leadership, character and citizenship. The system is meant to provide increased opportunities to practice leadership skills and teamwork, Sanders said. According to Sanders, military discipline is not much different than the good discipline one needs to be successful in life. Students who excel in school and with their social and sports activities are disciplined in their behavior in how they treat their peers, teachers and families. “I like to think that any discipline that we instill in our cadets enriches their other classes and

home life, and in turn will make ship. Formal attire for the cadets them better and more productive is required and full military dress people,” said Sanders. for the male cadets is the custom.

¾ of a mile give or take. To get there from Mill Spring, take Silver Creek Road to Holbert’s Cove Road and turn left. Stay on Holbert’s Cove Road several miles until you come to Cove Creek. There is a pull-off on the left just before crossing the creek. The parking lot to Big Bradley Falls is












across the creek and on the right. The trail goes upstream from the parking lot on the left along a high bank above the creek. You will come to a place where the trail turns left to follow another creek, take a trail that goes to the right and crosses the creek. You will soon cross over the bigger

Cove Creek. Stay on this trail that is paralleling the road above, and the creek below. You will go past an old home place foundation, and you will soon come to the falls. If you’ve never been there, and your health allows, I hope you go and enjoy this fine piece of God’s handiwork.

In our world of increasingly bitter and contested relationships, civility is emerging as a way to enhance constructive communication. Civility is not a new thing. The word has been used for centuries. “Civility” comes from a Latin word meaning courtesy and has to do with the exercise of politeness, courtesy, respect, and minimal social graces in relationships. Some define it as the “state of being civilized.” Today civility is often mentioned in relationship to family interactions, work relationships, school policies, Internet discussions, political

interactions and even church meetings. Even Congress once considered adopting a policy on civility, very briefly as it turns out, and unsuccessfully. What does civility have to do with faith? If you look carefully at the teachings of Jesus and the writings of the New Testament you may be surprised how many of them have to do with relationships. And there’s a lot of wisdom there. The Golden Rule, for example, says: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” (Matthew 7:12). And most of us know that how we treat

My grandmother used to say that in every relationship there are always three parties: the other person, God and me. And I am third. Civility acknowledges the presence of God and the value of others in any relationship. It is an act of respect, even humility.

Gene Carroll Marlowe

Accomplished whistler and prolific letter-writer Gene Carroll Marlowe, 83, of Landrum, shuffled off his mortal coil May 3, 2012, two months after receiving a diagnosis of a terminal brain tumor, Glioblastoma multiforme. O n March 7, 2012 G e n e and the love of his life, Michele Mercier Marlowe, were remarried in the Spartanburg Regional Hospital after learning of his serious illness. Gene and Michele had been married for 34 years and were

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

divorced for nine years before reuniting. Born Aug. 13, 1928, in Columbus, Ga., Gene grew up in cotton mill villages of Thomaston and Porterdale, Ga. As an 11-year-old, he ran away from home to visit the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. At 17 years old in 1945, he enlisted in the Navy as a photographer and saw the world from the cockpits of dive bombers and the decks of aircraft carriers. After four years in the Navy, he enrolled at the University of Miami on the GI Bill. While there, he studied radio, television and theater. Encouraged by his fans at Miami’s Studio M Theater, Gene left school after four years, borrowed a car and drove to Hollywood, Calif. There, he began working as an actor. He appeared in numerous episodes of early TV series, and ultimately shared the

screen with Lloyd Bridges and Joan Taylor in Roger Corman’s “Apache Woman.” After retiring from acting, Gene became an industrial filmmaker with the trucking industry. In 1977, Gene moved his family to Tallahassee, Fla., where he worked with the Florida Hotel Motel Association for many years before retiring in the early 1990s. His retirement years were spent with his family in Lexington, Va., until he moved to the Tryon and Landrum area in 2003. Friends and family will remember Gene as an avid and curious reader, an incisive social critic, a keen wit, a creative problem solver and an independent thinker. His engaging stories and ad hoc academic lectures will be missed, along with his quick jokes and rare harmonica concerts. Gene is survived by his first wife, Dorothy Marlowe of Portland, Ore.; his current



wife, Michele Marlowe; son Duff Marlowe and grandson Joe of Glendale, Calif.; son Brandon Marlowe and grandson Jackson of Santa Monica, Calif.; son Devon Marlowe and grandson Joshua of Chico, Calif.; and son Seth Marlowe of Roanoke, Va. He is also survived by his brother, Rex Marlowe, of Macon, Ga. and sister, Bobbie Meston, of Orlando, Fla. His family is especially thankful to a host of friends in Landrum and Tryon who devotedly supported Gene and his family in the last months of Gene’s life. A celebration of Gene’s life will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 19, 2012, at Gene’s home in Landrum. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, please consider sending donations to Hospice House of the Carolina Foothills, 260 Fairwinds Road, Landrum S.C. 29356. 864-4579100.

Landrum soccer defeats Brashier in state playoffs first round by Joey Millwood

May 8 was a big night for Landrum’s Jon Perry. Perry and the Cardinal soccer team defeated Brashier Middle College 3-1 on Tuesday night to advance to the second round of the 1A state playoffs. Perry got the offensive night started for the Cardinals with a goal in the first half. The senior put his head on a corner kick by Mick Prather in the 22nd minute. The rest of the first half looked

much like an early season matchup between the two teams that ended on sudden death penalty kicks in the third overtime. The ending from that earlier match was not destined to repeat. After a 30-minute lightning delay, the Cardinals came out in the second half and handled business. Perry found Sam Parsons in front of the net to put the Cardinals up 2-1. It was a big night for Perry in what could be the last game on

his home field. The Presbyterian College commit had 10 shots on goal, one goal and an assist. “He just stepped it up,” head coach Josh Fowler said. “He’s a threat to score at all times.” The final Cardinal goal came from another senior with 2:04 left to play. Jose Ibarra picked up the ball and shot it past the goal deep inside the goalie box. It was Ibarra’s first goal of the season and something he desperately wanted, Fowler said.

“It felt really good (to score the goal in my last home game),” Ibarra said. “I did my best.” The Cardinals’ attention now shifts to a major test. Landrum will play at St. Joseph’s on Thursday night at 7 p.m. The Knights are the No. 1 team in the state and won Landrum’s region this season. “It’s a challenge,” Fowler said. “It will be an opportunity to show what we can do. We’re looking forward to it.”

“Juliette Gordon Low began the Girl Scout organization in 1912 by inviting a group of girls to her home in Savannah, Ga.,” said Marcia Cole, CEO of P2P. “Juliette opened up the world to girls, bringing them out of isolated home environments and into community service. Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars and studied first aid. Today, Girl Scouts build robots, advocate for cleaner water and explore the mysteries of space.” Girls are engaged in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program.
