With help from a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation, Ms. Grochowski’s second grade class at Saluda Elementar y School uses puppets and cooperative lear ning groups as tools when learning literacy skills. The students work in teams to write scripts based on reading assignments and then perform them through impromptu puppet shows. Grochowski said the use of puppets makes learning fun and provides a practical application for developing communication skills.

Polk issues proclamation for Mental Health Month WHEREAS, Since 1949, May has been observed as Mental Health Month throughout the United States. With this observation an opportunity has been provided to raise awareness about mental health issues for more than 60 years; and WHEREAS, Each May, Americans recognize Mental Health Month with events and activities in communities across the country. This year, the theme, “Healing Trauma’s Invisible Wounds,” raises awareness of trauma, the devastating impact it has on physical, emotional and mental well-being and how therapeutic techniques based in neuroscience can mitigate these effects and create dramatic changes in people’s lives; and WHEREAS, Mental illness can strike anyone at any time. Mental illness does not discriminate. In fact, it affects people of all races, religions, creeds, color, ethnic origins, sex, age and socioeconomic status. One out of five families will experience a family member with some type of mental illness. Mental illnesses are medical conditions that disrupt a person’s thinking, feelings, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning resulting in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life; and WHEREAS, Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and well-being; and WHEREAS, All Americans experience times of difficulty and stress in their lives; and WHEREAS, Prevention is an effective way to reduce the burden of mental health condi-

tions; and WHEREAS, There is a strong body of research that supports specific tools that all Americans can use to better handle challenges, and protect their health and well-being; and WHEREAS, Mental health conditions are real and prevalent in our nation; and WHEREAS, With effective treatment, those individuals with mental health conditions can recover and lead full, productive lives; and WHEREAS each business, school, government agency, healthcare provider, organization and citizen shares the burden of mental health problems and has a responsibility to promote mental wellness and support prevention efforts NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved that we, the Polk County Board of Commissioners, do hereby proclaim the month of May as Mental Health Month, and encourage all citizens, government agencies, public and private institutions, businesses and schools in Polk County to recommit to increasing awareness and understanding of mental health. The board also calls upon you to promote advocacy and education; work towards the elimination of stigma toward those living with mental illness, their families, friends and co-workers; and to support community organizations and agencies promoting health and wellness by serving individuals and families seeking to respond to the challenges before them. Adopted this the 21st day of May 2012.

The limited-edition Nexcare give Bandages will be distrib-

uted at Red Cross donor centers and blood drives nationwide beginning Monday, June 11 and throughout that week, leading up to World Blood Donor Day on June 14.

Taylor received 100 units of life-saving blood after a near-fatal car accident, and attributes her survival to the donors and doctors who helped save her life. – article submitted by Carol D.

Bramblett on stage with Achison at TFAC June 2 Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) will host Geoff Achison on guitar, Randall Bramblett on keyboards and sax, Grammy winner Yonrico Scott on drums and “the funkiest dude in the world,” bassist Ted Pecchio on Saturday, June 2 at 8 p.m. Bramblett, besides having his own solo career, is a “team player” in American rock/blues/soul music with more than three decades as a session musician and touring with a “who’s who” of players, including Southern rockers such as Gregg Allman, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Sea Level, Government Mule, and Widespread Panic, as well as blues greats John Hammond, Francine Reed and Johnny Jenkins. He also played with alternative rockers, The Vigilantes of Love as well as rock

icons Steve Winwood and Levon Helm. Bramblett is known in the music business not only for his musicianship but also for his songwriting. Most recently, Bonnie Raitt recorded Bramblett’s “Used to Rule the World” as the lead song on her new CD. Chuck Leavell of the Allman Brothers and the Rolling Stones says, “Randall is in my opinion the most gifted and talented southern singersongwriter musician of the past several decades.” The performance is offered with support from Lichty Guitars and media sponsor WNCW Radio. Tickets can be purchased either online at www.tryonarts.org or by calling the box office at 828859-8322. – article submitted by Marianne Carruth

Thermal Belt Outreach launches Ambassador Program Nearly 20 new “ambassadors” for Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (Outreach) attended the first Outreach Ambassador training session in late March. “Our Ambassador Program was developed to bring Outreach back to its historic roots as a true community-based organization,” said Carol Newton, Outreach’s executive director. “Our ambassadors will serve as liaisons between their organization and Outreach, carrying the message about our programs and our services to their fellow members.” Newton continued, “Outreach was founded upon the idea of local churches pooling their resources to better serve the needy of this county, and we looked to the churches again as we launched this program.” Very soon, the organization hopes to add to their roster of ambassadors by extending membership to service clubs, businesses and other local organizations. Anna McClure serves as the Ambassador Program coordinator and as Outreach’s volunteer coordinator. McClure joined

the organization in March, after spending 10 years with Community Health Connections, an affiliate of St. Luke’s Hospital. She is the wife of Pastor Charles McClure of Mountain Creek Baptist Church and a lifelong resident of Polk County. “Anna’s skills, life experience and knowledge of the county and its residents made her a natural fit for this job,” said Newton. Since joining Outreach, McClure has focused on getting to know individual volunteers, as well as volunteer recruitment. “I believe there are many more people in Polk County who would find volunteering at Outreach a rewarding experience,” said McClure. “After all, when we volunteer our time, we serve as ‘our brother’s keeper,’” a role McClure believes offers mission opportunities on a day-to-day basis and a sense of satisfaction in knowing you have reached out to your neighbor. To find out about Outreach’s many volunteer opportunities and how you can lend your talents to make a difference please call, McClure at 828-894-2988.

Slow food, small economies: Recipe for freedom Participating in May 20’s Slow Food Foothills event which led to an all-American Memorial Day weekend full of perfect weather, friends, family, and foods has me buzzing with contentment and satisfaction. The natural setting and neighborly ways of the fine folks gathered at Overmountain Vineyards and Winery was intoxicating, no pun intended. As Slow Food Foothills, we certainly focus a lot on food that is good, clean, and fair. Then Memorial Day weekend reminded me that slow food is only one branch on the tree-climb to a more sustainablecommunity life.

What sort of soldiering do we need to

do, here on our soils, to protect our small rural community, here our sought-out way of life, here are some things we should do. “Always ask of any proposed in rural southern America?

The North Carolina Master Gardeners held its annual meeting in Asheville, N.C. recently. A tour of Pearson’s Falls was offered to the participants and 23 master gardeners were guided throughout the glen by John Vining and the Tryon Garden Club docents using the new “Chatter Vox.” (photo by Daniel Cox)

Projects Fund, provided funding to expand the educational offerings the Tryon Garden Club can provide for those interested in Pearson’s Falls and the extensive wildflower, lichen, fern and arboreal collection found in the glen. The grant request provided for the purchase of the “Chatter Vox,” a GPS system to specifically locate rare and endangered plant species for digital identification and a camcorder with microphone system and tripod for videotaping of special

guest walks and other important events associated with the Tryon Garden Club for future viewing and historical documentation. All of these tools were put to use quickly. The Tryon Garden Club is a not-for-profit 501 c (3) organization with membership open to the public.
