Care kitchen reaches out to feed community in need by Leah Justice

For area residents who may need a free meal or some fellowship, a group of concerned residents has created the Care Kitchen every Friday. The Care Kitchen is held at the Polk Baptist Association basement every Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. where area residents can get a hot meal for free if needed. Donations are also accepted to keep the program going. The idea started with Reba Hudgins and Angie Levi who said during an ice storm a couple of years ago they were worried that some of their neighbors may not be getting proper nutrition. The group began meeting in March and presented the idea to area churches with Hickory Grove Baptist, Pea Ridge Baptist and Mountain Valley Baptist (Continued on page 5)

Former owners regain golf community by Leah Justice

Bright’s Creek is back in the hands of owners Bill Amick and Jim Roquemore after the two said the most recent owners did not fulfill their commitment. Protex Investment Group, Inc., purchased Bright’s Creek last year under owners Alexander Salgado and Gabrielle Barragan.

Amick and Roquemore recently sent a letter to Bright’s Creek members, saying they had taken back ownership of the property and are in search of another buyer. “The Great Recession and the real estate crash have caused many negative repercussions. Each of us has been hurt

Downtown Tryon getting facelift Recent activities over the past week have enhanced the visual presence of Tryon’s downtown corridor. The Town of Tryon’s Public Works Director Joel Burrell, his crew members, interim Harmon Field Director Travis Aldred, Tryon Business and Tourism Development Coordinator Crys Armbrust and citizen volunteers Larry Eckstein and John Massengill joined forces to leg up all the trees on South and North Trade Streets from New Market to Palmer Streets. Additionally, approximately half of the redundant signage was removed, most of which were redundant two hour parking signs. A number of additional signs will either be removed or relocated in the upcoming week. Another noticeable shift in the downtown corridor is the re-spacing of the Tryon Downtown Development Association

(TDDA) memorial benches and trash receptacles. This change is in anticipation of the implementation of a number of hanging flower baskets along Trade Street, an element which has been under discussion over the past year. Funding for additional baskets is being sought. The town’s recent Streetscape III infrastructure improvements by Trace & Company on New Market, South Trade and McCown Streets, combined with the landscaping improvements and the re-figuring of benches were aimed at giving Tryon’s central business district a new visual appeal. For further information about volunteer opportunities in downtown, contact Crys Armbrust at carmbrust@windstream.net or TDDA President Steve Cobb at scobbrph@yahoo.com. - article submitted by Crys Armbrust

to some degree or another with our respective portfolios,” said Amick in the letter. “As most of you know, Jim Roquemore and I, through PAR Investments, LLC, have regained ownership of Bright’s Creek ... We have continued to negotiate with prospective buyers, but as of yet, nothing has transpired. We will continue to vet any reasonable offer, which comes from a credible source.” Amick said until a buyer is found, which could be between two and 24 months, PAR Investments LLC is in the process of hiring an independent homeowners association manager, Town & Country Property Management Inc. to manage the community. PAR Investments LLC has also hired Love Golf Management to manage the golf operation, according to Amick’s letter. Amick also said Bright’s Creek is hiring a broker to help find a buyer. “Each of you deserves a developer and an operator who can increase the value of the property you own,” said Amick. “Jim and I, along with this broker, will continue to search for someone who can take Bright’s Creek to the next level. We have several serious folks looking at the project, but nothing that is close to a final deal.” Love Golf Management will recruit a board of stakeholders consisting of 10 Bright’s Creek members and owners who will set club expectations and a dues structure that is “both fair and necessary,” Amick said. Dues will increase for members on a temporary basis with Amick and Roquemore saying they are participating in the increases as well. “Having a viable golf course and community is the only way to protect and increase the value of the lots and golf membership we have all invested in,” said Amick. “This will happen very quickly. Jim and I have poured millions into Bright’s Creek by subsidizing the budget. Our life savings have been depleted to a point that

we can no longer carry the load alone. We either need to shut the golf course down or receive an expense offset in the way of dues or assessments. It would be unfair to shut the course down without giving our members and owners a chance to be part of the solution.” Amick goes on to say this time of year the operating budget for Bright’s Creek is $100,000 per month. In the winter, Amick said the cost per month could be much reduced and there is no interest charge because Bright’s Creek has no bank debt. In short, Amick said, the operating budget will be in the $1 million range annually but that can go up or down depending on the level of service required by the membership and recommended by the new board. Amick said if members are added, the amount decreases and if Bright’s Creek adds some daily play the amount decreases. “Since 2007, Jim and I have done our part. We are now asking that you help us bring Bright’s Creek through this transition. In fairness, we know this is not what you bargained for, but no one could have foreseen this recession or real estate crash, and the resulting effect it has had on Bright’s Creek. Jim, Scott, and I are working daily to find solutions at Bright’s Creek.” The Polk County Board of Commissioners in April 2011 approved a new development agreement with the new owners Protex Investment Group, Inc. At that time, the new owners said they planned to cluster housing instead of having large, individual lots and add 1,381 acres of open space. The new owners also had plans to add trails and a Par 3 golf area and a boutique and spa location. Bright’s Creek is located mostly in Polk County with some areas in Henderson County. The approximate 5,000-acre development includes a Tom Fazio designed golf course, several homesites built, an equestrian center and lodge. The Bulletin was unable to reach Amick and Roquemore for comment prior to deadline.

participating. The Polk Baptist Association agreed to house the kitchen in the downstairs of the building. Things got off to a slow start, but Hudgins said the volunteers were dedicated and wouldn’t give up. “We just went to work at it,” said Hudgins. “These workers are the most dedicated there are. Even when we had no one to show up to begin with they didn’t give up.” The record so far is 36 meals served in one day. Last week the Care Kitchen served 25 meals, consisting of hot dogs, baked beans, coleslaw, chips, drinks and desserts. This Friday the main dish will be taco salad. Organizers said they feel the kitchen is making a difference in many people’s lives. One man attending said he is homeless and another woman had been evicted and had canned food but no meat and no money to purchase food.

Ronnie Hodge is also available for fellowship for anyone who may need to talk. “I look forward to it,” said one attendee last Friday. “The food is good and I enjoy the fellowship.” Volunteers for the program include Hudgins, Levi, Don Sain, Tammy Hodge, Marlene Fisher, Ann Carswell and Eloise Thwing. Carswell said Thwing is the weekly greeter and has wanted this type of soup kitchen in Polk County for years. Food is brought from the churches with donations appreciated.

Being an old (as in really old) fan of the Beach Boys the months of June, July and August have always brought home memories of surf, sand, old fashioned Coppertone suntan lotion and evenings on the pier at Myrtle Beach listening to various renditions of Barbara Ann, California Girls, Dance-Dance-Dance, Kokomo and Little Deuce Coupe (and, yes, those are all on my iPod). I used to drive my 14 year old son crazy playing all the oldies over and over again as we wended our way to the beach for summer vacations – and I delighted in both the music and his indignant discomfiture. Every one of us hold as dear certain memories from our childhood and youth. Halcion images of days and

times when everything was “just right” create in our minds icons of a Golden Age that was, and yet never was. We tend to forget the bad, hurtful or stressful things that occurred in parallel to the good times, and that is just fine. No one wants to live over and over again the Cuban Missile Crisis, the JFK assassination, the Civil Rights Movement riots, the Vietnam War, or Watergate, but all these were also a part of those golden years of our youth. Today we are living through days that will also be remembered as both golden and tarnished, by our children and by us as well.

How many more

years did it take for us to add his portrait to the building? Howard Greene was Bryant Womack’s Army mentor and advised him not to become a medic, for he would find himself in the thick of combat with no weapon to defend himself. Womack probably could have avoided service entirely as a conscientious objector, but chose to serve as a medical corpsman because he said he did “not want to kill anybody.” Howard was probably the last person from Polk County to see Bryant alive; he used to give young Womack rides home from Fort Jackson, near Columbia, S.C. One day Howard and I were riding around the county planning a route for one of the historical association’s tours. He suggested that we stop in to see George Womack, Bryant’s brother, and we found him at home. While standing in his study, I noticed several photographs on his desk. Several were of Bryant, so I asked

spectives, and have people ask me where those two waterfalls were located. Equipment can be a big help. I use a Nikon D-40. Its an old school entry level digital SLR. It has low mega pixels but I read lots and lots of good reviews about it before I got one. I recommend you do the same before you buy a camera. A good SLR camera gives you many tools to help in getting the right shot. The auto feature is great, but spending time to learn these features is time well spent. I have lots of room to improve on the technical part of photography, but what I have learned has made a huge difference. Thankfully there are a lot of

good ones out there to choose from; you can spend as much as you want but there are some very good ones for entry level in the $400-$800 range. A tripod is a must. Either get a really good one that will last, or a real cheap one because you will most likely break one before long. And lastly I found out that taking a lot of digital photos gives you affordable practice, and if you take enough shots, you are bound to get one good one. You might be surprised how many hundreds and even thousands of shots a photographer takes at a single sporting event to get that one cover shot. And you won’t get a good one if you don’t shoot, so fire away.

Medal of Honor. The late Joe Foss was flying to a speaking engagement shortly after 911 and had his Medal of Honor in his pants pocket. The ignorant security people took it away from him because he could hurt somebody with it! I don’t know how that was resolved, but I hope you will learn what the medal looks like and understand that it is earned (not won) by some pretty special people to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude.

There was some talk of naming the new high school for Bryant (we would then have the alliterative Womack Wolverines!) but as yet nothing has come of that. I mention all of this only to support my lament above that civilians have little appreciation for the
