Tryon Arts and Crafts repeats fused art glass lamp workshop Tryon Arts and Crafts School (TACS) presented “Slumpfest,” a fused art glass lamp workshop in February. The workshop, taught by Karoline Shaffer and John O’Rourke and supplied by Slumpy’s, a Glass Mold Company, a fused glass supplier from Belmont, N.C., was so popular that TACS will offer it again on May 18-20. Students will create their own glass lampshades by layering different colors of transparent, translucent and iridescent glass in sheet, stringer and chip form. The layer sheet of glass will then be heated in a kiln until it fuses into a sheet. The next step is to lay the fused glass sheet over a stainless steel form and return it to the kiln. This time the glass is heated until it softens enough to slump over the form, creating the lampshade or vase shape. The finished one-of-a-kind glass shade can then be installed in a

hanging pendant lamp or a table lamp fixture. If you want to take the handmade idea to the next level, keep your eye peeled for a future workshop at Tryon Arts and Crafts School forge in which you can make a forged iron lamp base to use with your lampshade. Friday night, May 18, from 6-8 p.m., will be a meet and greet with a brief discussion on design, color and planning. Students will have a chance to start their design that evening. During Saturday’s session, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., students will assemble their base sheets and load them into the kilns. On Sunday, students will see their fused sheets, drill any holes required for a lamp fitting and select a form on which to shape their shade. Sunday will also feature a review and discussion of technical information. O’Rourke and Shaffer are glass and clay artists whose

The proposed budget also allows for $9,000 in the police department for upgrades to the department’s radio system. These upgrades are needed to comply with new regulations mandated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Also included in the budget proposal is a 2-percent employee bonus.

Fire chief Joey Davis is currently serving as the town’s interim town manager. The proposed budget expenditures of $4,130,620 are less than this year’s approved budget, which included $4,970,720 in expenditures. The general fund is proposed to decrease from this year’s approved budget of $1,775,503 to $1,623,975 for next year. The water and sewer fund is also proposed to decrease from this year’s approved budget of $1,906,826 to $1,748,245 for next year. Town council plans to hold budget work sessions later this month to discuss the budget proposal in detail. The town’s new budget year will begin July 1.

Fear. It is a common word and experience, and lately there seems to be a lot of it going around. The English definition of fear is “a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined.” (dictionary.com) Therefore this emotion is usually elicited by something we do not know or do not understand, something outside our usual set of experiences. Over the past several weeks, we have seen how fear has played a major role in determining civil policy, and we can anticipate an increase in fear-mongering as we move through the next few months to the presidential election. Needless to say, we need a way to cope with fear – from threats real or imagined – and

since many of the political arguments are being cast in religious terms we need to understand what the word “fear” really means. In the Bible the word “fear” has several meanings. The Hebrew word “yirah” means “awe, reverence, respect and devotion,” and it became translated in the King James Version of the Bible as “fear of the Lord.” In ancient Greek, the word “phobos,” meaning “panic, fear, terror and flight from danger” was used in Biblical translations to describe an overwhelming emotional reaction to an encounter with the divine. It is unfortunate that our response to God in Western culture has become far more associated with “phobos” than “yirah,” and it

Free concert by North Sea Gas at TFAC on May 20 The Scottish band North Sea Gas, known worldwide for its great instrumental music and three-part harmonies, will perform at the Tryon Fine Arts Center on Sunday, May 20 at 2 p.m. The program, which will be followed by a reception at the Lanier Library, is free and everyone is welcome. One of Scotland’s most popular folk bands, the North Sea Gas trio, Ronnie MacDonald, Grant Simpson and Dave Gilfillan, play guitars, fiddles, bousouki whistles, bodhrans and banjos, adding vocals and good humor to their performances. The group has recorded 15 albums and has received gold and silver awards from the Scottish music industry. It has performed frequently at the world-renowned Edinburgh Festival and makes regular tours throughout Europe,

Australia and North America, but their largest audience, an estimated 800 million, was on Chinese television. Lead singer Dave Gilfillan, who plays guitar, banjo and mandola, has a reputation for rousing sing-along vocals and heartfelt ballads as well as his tongue-in-cheek humor. Guitarist Ronnie MacDonald began with the band 23 years ago but took a break of 15 years with his own band in Australia before returning to North Sea Gas six years ago. Fiddler Grant Simpson grew

When I was a boy I learned that “telling a story” meant telling a lie. Little white lies were thus “stories.” Also, most of the “stories” we read or were told were actually some kind of “fairy tale,” not about real people but imaginary characters. When I began writing these “Remember When” columns I was relying on my memory to tell completely factual stories about real people, all from my personal experience. I usually got it right and only my Aunt Mildred would correct some details from time to time. Then as I began to share things told to me by others who liked my columns and wanted something put in them, I began to be regarded as a historian. Perhaps it was my selection by the late Betty Frost to head the Polk County Historical Association that fueled that notion, but I soon had to protest that I am just a storyteller, not a real historian like Anna Conner or Mike McCue. I have always been quick to correct the myths and misunderstandings that found their way into my recollections. After all, they usually make another column! Many times the “corrections” are made over lunch or on a grand tour of some portion of Our Area. This time it came in a formal letter, beautifully typed and arranged
