Congregational Women’s Fellowship Luncheon May 21 On Monday, May 21, the Women’s Fellowship of the Congregational Church in Tryon will host a special luncheon. A social time will begin at 11:30 a.m., followed by a catered luncheon at noon and a presentation by Clara Gandy at 12:45 p.m. Gandy, a member of the church’s congregation, has a Ph.D in history and taught college history for many years. She will speak about the importance of the King James edition of the Bible as it reveals the religious and political tensions of the first 100 years of the Protestant Reformation in Europe. Great controversy surrounded the writing and publication of the Holy Scriptures into the lan-

guages of the common people. In 1611, King James I of England authorized the publication of the Bible. Today, 400 years later, the work continues to have literary as well as scriptural importance around the world. All interested congregation and community members are invited to attend. There is no charge for anyone wanting to attend only the program at 12:45 p.m. Reservations for the luncheon are requested by noon on Thursday, May 17.

Dr. Olin Sansbury will speak on the timely subject of American elections at the Lanier Library on Tuesday, May 15 at noon. The program is part of the Lanier Library’s Brown Bag Lunch series and the audience is encouraged to bring their lunch. Coffee will be provided. The former director, and later chancellor, of USC Spartanburg, Sansbury earned his Ph.D. in international studies from the University of South Carolina and his bachelor’s degree from Wofford College. He also served in the U. S. Army and is a veteran of the Vietnam War. As a visiting professor, from 2004 to 2008, he also taught a course on American presidents at Wofford College. He and his wife retired to Tryon in 2010. Last month he was honored by USC Upstate, which dedicated The Olin B. Sansbury Jr. Campus Life Center at the university in his honor. Sansbury will discuss how the process of choosing a president has changed significantly over the years. He said, “The first presidents were chosen to a large extent by Congress, which is very different from the current situation, and since World War II elections have become increasingly elaborate and significantly more expensive. It is also much more difficult to govern now.� The Lanier Library’s Brown Bag Lunch series of includes discussions by authors, historians, and local experts in many other fields, and is held at noon

St. Luke’s celebrates National Hospital Week From simple acts of kindness, to being present during delicate aspects of people’s lives, healthcare workers perform heroic deeds. Every day they bring professionalism, compassion and dedication to their work and to those who are in their care. St. Luke’s Hospital invites the community to join in giving healthcare workers a special expression of gratitude for their service. From May 7-11, this tribute is part of a celebration of National Hospital Week that runs concurrently with National Nurses Week. National Hospital Week is a time when people in our community can give recognition to a group of individuals who perform an important community service every day. It takes head, hand and heart to do their jobs. Every day our hospital

Caring for our Community by Ken Shull

staff comes to work, not knowing what to expect, but ready for anything. National Hospital Week is a time to take the extra effort to show these dedicated people that their work matters and we notice their exceptional quality of care. National Hospital Week, first and foremost, is a celebration of people. We’re extremely proud of each member of our staff, and we recognize the important role they play in extending a sense of trust to our patients and our communities. The nation’s largest health care event, National Hospital Week dates back to 1921 when a magazine editor suggested

the celebration in hope that a community-wide celebration would alleviate public fears about hospitals. The celebration, launched in Chicago, succeeded in promoting trust and goodwill among members of the public and eventually spread to facilities across the country. While I’m sure that most hospitals across the country are celebrating Hospital Week, I wonder if there’s another in the US that has as great a group of dedicated staff as those right here in Polk County at St. Luke’s Hospital. We’re very fortunate to have such outstanding employees who care for our patients with great skill and compassion. During National Hospital Week, please join me in recognizing the staff of St. Luke’s Hospital where we provide exceptional care, right here, close to home.

loving as Jewel has. As I headed home I said a prayer of thanks for the help I’ve received in all these cases. More than $1,500 has been spent on Kaniska and Katrina and their lost sister. Added to that, the money spent on Jewel and Buck was more than $8,000 came from Lennie’s fund. I say this because though I have fundraisers twice a year, it is what happens in between that makes it all possible. The money sent to me, handed to me or put in jars for my kids all adds up, no matter how small the donations. Buck, Jewel, the two sisters and so many others are thriving because of all of you. I’m aware that lots of the gifts I receive are anonymous but believe me, your dollars help save lives. So to those of you whom I may never know, I want to take this to say, “God bless you all and thank you.” Thanks for listening.

Nuno felting workshop at Tryon Arts and Crafts School May 19 Elynn Bernstein will offer a workshop in nuno felting at Tryon Arts and Crafts School (TACS) on Saturday, May 19, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Many people are familiar with felting methods that compress wool roving and create dense fabric that is used in hats and winter garments. Nuno felting is a way to inject soft fabric like silk with wool roving to create an entirely new texture that combines the dense and rough with soft and smooth. The result is a scarf or garment that has an abstract quality and a very uneven surface and outline. Many colors are blended together to produce a rainbow of hues in one wearable piece. Each creation is distinctly original, bringing a new dimension to both silk and wool. Nuno felt is much admired for its textures, lightweight

beyond to explore the many options available when designing and embellishing nuno felt. Participants will be stand-

strength for rolling and fulling. Some previous felting experience is important. There will be a small materials fee per person to cover silk fabric and wool roving. Bernstein was formerly trained as a painter and worked in that medium for more than 25 years. She made the change to fiber when she made a change in her life. From living a city life, she moved to a mountaintop in Hendersonville, N.C. and started a small hobby farm. Sheep were part of her flock, then her medium. She said, “My fiber art still involves painting. I paint dyes on the wool and silk to start my creations. The same criteria used in any design work – texture, color, balance and rhythm – are taken into consideration in the felted pieces. My sense

of playfulness and whimsy are as evident in my felted pieces as they were in my paintings.” Bernsetin has recently become a member of The Southern Highland Crafts Guild and has been awarded a 2011 Regional Artists Grant from the Arts Council of Henderson County. Her work can currently be seen at Nice Threads Fiber and Studio Gallery in Black Mountain, N.C. and Bellagio and the Grovewood Gallery in Asheville, N.C.

They want me to add a glossary?” and bunked in with the horses. It was much quieter but they didn’t want the spaghetti, either. The storm passed and calmer heads prevailed the following morning when the deadline was met with all final revisions. Pouring a bowl of cereal, he was actually humming. “All done?” I asked cautiously. “All done!” he replied triumphantly. Spilling a glug of milk over his granola, he added, “It’s a pretty cool thing when you have that final meeting with your publisher and they say, “Be thinking about what you want to write about for your second book!” “Second book?” I replied like a whip crack. “Yep!” Better get a satellite dish installed in the barn.
