The autopsy report, released Thursday, May 24 in Henderson County, states Lindsay died as a result of a large caliber, nonexiting gunshot wound to the face and neck at an indeterminate range. The bullet entered his left jaw and the trajectory was from front to back, to the right and down, according to the report. Lindsay’s body also showed signs of blunt trauma, the reports states, with a laceration and abrasions on his forehead,

his nose and left cheek. Lindsay also had abrasions on his left hand and contusions on his lower extremities. An investigative report that accompanied the autopsy said Lindsay had been staying at a lake house with friends and was found in a bedroom. A toxicology report showed that Lindsay’s blood alcohol level was 0.12 at the time of his death. Case is being held at the Henderson County Detention Facility on a $500,000 bond. Case’s next court date is scheduled for June 25 in Henderson County.

Tryon receives complaint regarding 2008 CDBG project Council creates investigative committee for issue by Leah Justice

The Town of Tryon has received a complaint regarding a 2008 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from a family whose house was left out of the project after cost estimates exceeded the budget. Tryon Town Council met May 15 and created an investigative committee to look into the complaint, which was made by Brook Hannon on behalf of Haywood Hannon. Tryon participated in a CDBG revitalization project that involved using $600,000 in CDBG funds to rehabilitate five owner/ tenant occupied houses belonging to low-to-moderate-income individuals, six houses in need of emergency repairs, as well as water, sewer, street, flood and drainage work in the West Livingston Street area. Tryon Town Council held a special meeting and public hearing on April 2 to close out the grant and to send money not utilized back to the state. The town spent $556,467 on the project and is required to send $43,533 back to the state. During the April 2 meeting, Brook Hannon questioned why the house owned by his grandfather, Haywood Hannon, was not rehabilitated when it was scheduled to be done during the project. Brook Hannon said his family hooked onto Tryon’s sewer in anticipation of the work and would not have done so if they’d known the house would not be included in the project. During the project, estimates for the Hannon house came in at $70,000 when the budget was set at $52,000. Tryon Town Council agreed to contribute $10,000 toward the rehabilitation if the family could come up with the re-

mainder. Tryon officials also said the town ran the sewer connection at no cost to the homeowner. Representatives of Isothermal Planning and Development (IPDC), which administered the grant for Tryon, said the grant does allow for one house to be dropped from the project. During council’s meeting on May 15, attorney Bailey Nager informed the town that Brook Hannon’s complaint constitutes an official complaint and an investigative committee needs to be formed. Council appointed Mayor Alan Peoples and commissioners Doug Arbogast, George Baker and Wim Woody to the committee. The investigative committee plans to meet Tuesday, June 5 at 9 a.m., with findings scheduled to go to the full council during Tryon’s next meeting scheduled for June 19.

Cooperative extension offers classes on canning, preserving Preserving food cannot be considered new and trendy, but according to Jimmi Buell, family and consumer science agent with the Polk County Center of N.C. Cooperative Extension Services, the recent revival fits the modern renaissance of handcrafted food, heirloom agriculture and using foods in season. Like baking bread or making a slow-cooked tomato sauce, preserving offers primal satisfactions and practical results, she said. “There’s an incredible surge of interest recently,” said Buell. “People want to take back their food and their skills from the industrial giants. In a time of high food prices, job losses and food safety scares, home canning is booming.” The extension office will offer a “Canning and Preserving Made Easy” series of

workshops, the first of which will be held on June 7 at 2 p.m. and again at 6 p.m. Titled “Canning Made Easy,” the twohour workshop will present an overview of canning fruits and vegetables and will be held at the Polk County Extension Center. There will be a small fee for the class. The second canning workshop, “Canning Jam, Jellies, and Pickles,” will be held June 12 at 2 p.m. and again at 6 p.m. This workshop will also be two hours. The “Ball Blue Book of Canning” will be available for sale during both classes. Call the Polk County Center of N.C. Cooperative Extension Services at 828-894-8218 to reserve your space for these workshops or if you have any questions. – article submitted by Jimmi Buell

Ours

Yours

Impressive students graduating to take on uncertain world Last week Landrum High School graduated 114 students and sent them off into their futures. If these students are fearful for what lies ahead, many of them don’t show it. These young graduates and their peers at Polk County High School are taking on the world with brave, bold plans. In our Thursday, May 31 edition we’ll introduce you to the Landrum students who recently graduated and the Polk County High School students set to accept their diplomas Friday, June 8. We’ll also give you a glimpse into what these students see themselves accomplishing as they leave our area in pursuit of higher education and community service. We think you will be just as impressed as we were by their unique plans for life after high school. It seems very few of these students are allowing the doom and gloom viewpoint on today’s economy to hold them back. Yes, unfortunately many of them will face setbacks and roadblocks that reality stacks in front of all of us, but we commend their enthusiasm for the paths they are about to follow. Through their own ingenuity and creative spirits we think these students can accomplish great things. The support they have received over the years, and hopefully will continue to receive, from our great community will also make all the difference. Congratulations, graduates! — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

Comments on www.tryondailybulletin.com Tryon Daily Bulletin posted the article titled: “Tryon questions free mountain water to customer with 1926 deed” on May 23. Maxtrooper responded: “Nice guy this Miller. I do not believe that he was alive in the 1920s and living there to know what was intended. But to say that he will not give away water – I did not know that the mountain water belonged to him. I guess that his community loves his point of views. This was meant for irrigation – the pipe runs across his property. Just seems like the town would be better off to work with him instead of trying to make the wording. from the 1920s. work in his favor. Well, we are sure glad that Miller is not in our neck of the woods – so to speak!” Tryon Daily Bulletin posted the article titled: “Columbus police, highway patrol apprehend fugitive after pursuit” on

May 22. Dr. Bellows responded: “The authorities will always get their man even if they have to kill someone while doing so. Just last week I started to pass a slower car on Interstate 26 around Hendersonville. I looked in my mirrors as I started to signal. Just as I did an NCHP car went zipping by me in the left lane traveling at over 130 mph. A few minutes later I see the same NCHP car giving a citation to a grey haired woman driving a Lexus SUV. I know this SUV was speeding because she had passed me moments before the HP had. I estimate she had been traveling around 75 to 80 mph because I saw the HP in the median as she passed me miles back. I was traveling at 60 mph and she passed by my vehicle slowly. So what was more dangerous? A North Carolina Highway Patrol traveling over 130 mph? A Lexus SUV traveling 75 to 80 mph?

You arrive at 4 Spades with no opposing bidding and West leads the Queen of Clubs. Luckily, partners’ 3 Spade Limit Raise bid kept East from bidding Hearts or you would have been down with a Heart lead. For those players who play Bergen Raises a 3 Diamond bid would have allowed East to bid 3 Hearts. Although Bergen Raises are often quite useful, it does allow the opponents to get in a cheap overcall or lead directing double which is one of the drawbacks with the bid. East, upon winning with the Club Ace, continued the suit and you are now in with the King. Basically the hand now

comes down to how to play the red suits. If the Ace of Hearts is onside or the Diamond finesse is favorable you will make your contract. Sometimes, if the opponents get into the bidding they will give you a clue on how to play the hand. However, there is no clue here but that shouldn’t prevent you from planning for a worst case lie of the cards. So you draw trumps in 2 rounds making sure to end in the dummy and trump out the last Club. The moment of truth has now arrived, your next play will spell success or failure. It should be obvious that the Diamond suit should be played before trying the Heart suit. So you lead a small Diamond and you are home free if, and only if, you make the right play. Did you? All you have to do is cover whatever card West plays. East wins but is helpless. If he leads a Heart, you only have one Heart loser. If he leads a Diamond he gives you a free finesse which will eventually lead to setting up your 4th Diamond to allow you to discard a Heart from the dummy. The key to this hand was making a “losing” finesse turn into a “winning” situation. Note that declarer took advantage of the breaks, the favorable opening lead and West’s poor play of the Ace of Clubs at trick one. However the defense was not on their toes. West realizing that he held all of the key defensive cards should have ducked the opening lead to preserve an entry back to partner to avoid being end played later.
