• Silver Creek (continued from page 1)

Creek Community residents approximately three years ago, the state agreed to take over the maintenance of some of the deteriorated gravel roads where buses were unable to traverse in the subdivision in order

to safely pick up children. “Thanks to the efforts of all of you, NCDOT is in the last phases of completion of paving our roads. Today they plan to start the oil and Gravel portion to complete the paving,” said Silver Creek Community Vice-President Don Yarbrough in an email to county commissioners, Sen.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Notice is hereby given that at 7:00pm, on Monday, September 10, 2012, in the auditorium of the Polk County Middle School, 321 Wolverine Trail, Mill Spring, NC, the Polk County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the following ordinance: An Ordinance Concerning Nature-Oriented Non-Motorized Outdoor Recreation; Providing A Definition; Amending the Polk County Zoning Ordinance to Authorize Nature-Oriented Non-Motorized Outdoor Recreation as a Permitted Use in the MU, HC, I, and FF Zoning Districts and as a Conditional Use in the AR, MR, and NC Zoning Districts; Amending the Mountainside and Ridgeline Protection Ordinance for the Zoned Areas of Polk County to Provide an Exemption for Nature-Oriented Non-Motorized Outdoor Recreation. Copies of the proposed ordinance are available for review or purchase (at a nominal cost) in the County Manager’s Office in the Womack Building. They are also available online at www.polknc.org. For additional information about these ordinances contact County Planner, Cathy Ruth, at (828) 894-2732.

Tom Apadoca and Rep. David Guice on Aug. 21. “We as a community cannot thank you ‘ALL’ enough for all the advise and assistance you gave us in the long process. Last week we set up the two new structures for the new bus stops in our community, and feel so relieved to finally get the children in a safer place to wait on school busses. Again, THANKS for all your help.” The subdivision consists of 369 parcels and was first established in 1972. The homeowner’s association disbanded in 2001 and the roads, which had already begun deteriorating, continued to grow worse. Residents began a few years ago asking for the state’s help in maintaining the roads, which were so dilapidated and dangerous that school buses could not enter to pick up children. Residents banded together in 2007 to improve the neighborhood and in 2009 changed the name of the subdivision to the Silver Creek Community because of the bad reputation associated with the subdivision’s

former name, Land of Lakes. Homeowners began to petition the state three years ago to take over maintenance and have since placed welcome signs in the community, built flower boxes, started regular litter collection days and have gathered to fill potholes in the roads. The community also paid for some of the grading work and got donations for the school bus shelters. The county joined the effort a few years ago and approved a resolution asking the state to take over the road maintenance. Sen. Tom Apodaca and Rep. David Guice also joined the effort and contributed $75,000 each from their discretionary funds toward the project. The community also qualified for state transportation funding. The first phase of the project was originally estimated at $250,000 for the first 1.3 miles of road improvement. Residents have asked the state to take over the remaining roads in the subdivision but it’s uncertain currently if the state will approve maintaining the entire road system.

will pay for a ¼ of the costs of carp next year, but nothing in the future. Commissioners Wim Woody and George Baker voted for the motion and commissioners Doug Arbogast and Roy Miller voted against. Mayor Alan Peoples broke the tie in favor of the town helping to pay for the carp. Town council discussed the problem with Lake Lanier Civic Association (LLCA) President Allen Smith, who said since last year the weed and algae problem has doubled. Smith recommended there be 600 carp placed in the lake. Smith said the LLCA has received a quote to receive 600 carp at $9 per carp, or $5,400 total. Smith originally said the LLCA would pay $1,400 and asked the town to pay $4,000. Miller asked Smith if the LLCA has asked anyone else for

funding, like the state or Greenville County. Smith said he has asked the state but not Greenville County, saying that would be a waste of time. “Before we spend $4,000 of the citizens’ money, my recommendation is that you open dialogue with Greenville County,” said Miller. Arbogast added that if the citizens of Tryon had use of the lake the town may feel differently about contributing to the problem. Smith said the weed and algae problem is going to get worse and now is the time to stock the carp. The LLCA has done extensive research on solutions, including looking into chemicals approved for reservoirs. Smith said no one at the lake is in favor of solving the problem with chemicals. “It’s your water source,” Smith said. “We can split it 50/50 so we can do it this fall.” Smith added that next year the LLCA can put more money in for carp because the association has

started a special fund. Arbogast said if every resident of the lake contributes $10 the rest of the money can be raised. Miller said he is not inclined for the town to give any funding because the association has not gone to every resident of the lake yet or Greenville County. Peoples mentioned that several years ago the town spent $10,000 to stock carp in the lake and no one else contributed anything. He said he felt better about the town paying for half of the costs. The town owns the lakebed that is located just across the state line in Greenville County, S.C. and draws water from the lake as its main source of drinking water, including supplying water to lake residents as well as residents in the town and township. Tryon officials have struggled for years over enforcement of lake zoning due to the costs of enforcing an area that doesn’t contribute to the town’s tax base.

Four Winds Florist has been a Tryon institution for more than 70 years. As with many businesses, it has moved up and down the street and around the corner. Now, the florist has been purchased by local businessman Bob Morgan and returned to its original home beside Green River Gallery on Trade Street in Tryon. The florist has been purchased from owner/operator Carole Ormand, who will stay on to manage the daily operations. The business will continue to offer the community services such as custom floral design in addition to wedding, funeral and special occasion arrangements.

niques and bandaging techniques are used to decrease edema and that progress towards a permanent garment or sleeve to keep lymphedema minimized is the goal. There is no cure for lymphedema, but patient education, soft-tissue mobilization and bandaging are beneficial to control swelling. Falls for older people can cause debilitating injuries with slow, painful recovery. “A fear of falling is forefront in many older adults’ minds,” said McDermott. “By utilizing the Biodex Balance System, St. Luke’s rehab therapists concentrate on rehabilitation and remove that fear. Building confidence and strength only improves results.” The Biodex Balance System enables St. Luke’s rehabilitation team to perform balance testing and identify fall risk candidates, determine ankle and knee status

and determine limits of stability. This system also provides balance training including stabilization exercise, range of motion exercise, and weight shift exercise. Another important benefit for seniors, McDermott said, is that the $1,880 Medicare cap on therapy services does not apply to Critical Access Hospital-based outpatient therapy departments, such as St. Luke’s Hospital Outpatient Rehabilitation. This cap is a combined amount for Physical and Speech Therapy. A separate $1,880 cap is applied to Occupational Therapy. This means a patient may have to pay out of pocket for any therapy provided beyond this amount in other practice settings if certain conditions aren’t met for Medicare.

Letter to the Editor

In support of the TDDA

To the editor: I was reminded at a downtown event the other night that just a few years ago, Saluda was struggling with downtown vitality and Tryon was bustling. I remember that at one time the same was true with Landrum. Many are the forces and influences that merge to positively or negatively affect the vitality of a town or village. Influencing factors come from within the community and from far away. The economic crash of 2008 and resulting great recession are still dragging on the progress of the entire country, let alone our little town. Through the ups and downs of the past decade and a half, the volunteers of the Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) have been working diligently to improve the vitality of the town. Yet I have found that many in our community are confused and misinformed about the organization, and have even implied that the TDDA is part of the problem. That is a bunch of baloney. If anything, the TDDA should be praised, not maligned, for the thousands of volunteer hours and the many thousands of dollars spent that have resulted in streetscape design documents, economic studies, removal of overhead utility lines with new downtown street lights, various beautification efforts, downtown merchant strolls, and the ever popular April Fool’s Festival. The TDDA gave full organizational support and became the volunteer force behind the North Carolina Small Town Main Street Program. The TDDA has given volunteer and monetary support to many other organizations and events such as Summer Tracks and The Nina Simone Project.

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

The TDDA also provided initial monetary support to the establishment of a paid Town of Tryon position of Economic Development Director. Unfortunately, under this position the lines began to become blurry between the role and responsibilities of the TDDA and other entities such as the Town of Tryon and The Nina Simone Foundation. The TDDA had graciously supported The Nina Simone Project but at no time was responsible for decisions made, or monies spent or not spent. To be placed on the hook for the unpaid sculptor fees is a shameful injustice. Misconceptions abound as to what the TDDA is and has been responsible for, but one thing remains constant. The TDDA is the group that has been putting the most effort into this town for at least the last 14 years or so. Now there is an excitement and energy of a new group of folks who wish to improve the vitality of the Town. I for one am thrilled and pleased to see the concern of citizens manifest itself in action. I hope this revival of interest and new energy can be channeled for positive common good. However, I am very concerned that many volunteer hours and effort will be spent reinventing the wheel, so to speak, and that would be a terrible waste of such a valuable gift. There are already files full of ideas and supporting data for economic development, promotions, and beautification. Why not merge the efforts? This village cannot support two or more organizations working towards the same goals. I am not currently on the Board of Directors of TDDA but I have not seen any indication that they plan to dissolve the 501C-3. It seems prudent that newcomers and old hats alike work together to tackle the issues facing the town, and not throw the baby out with the bath water. ~ Mark Byington

Nelson newest inductee into the Second Wind Hall of Fame Paul E. Nelson became the newest inductee into the Second Wind Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the Rotary Club of Tryon on Aug. 16. Eloise T Johnson, a very active Second Wind member, was the initiating sponsor for selecting Nelson for this honor. Nelson moved to the Thermal Belt with his late wife in 2003 from Punta Gorda, Fla. Before retirement, they had lived in Albion, Mich. and Wichita, Kan. Nelson has been a Rotarian continuously since 1963, serving nine of those years in the Rotary Club of Tryon. His other community activities include nine years

with the Fellowship Council, three years with the Foothills Village Project, seven years as a columnist for the Tryon Daily Bulletin and eight years with the Lanier Library. While a board member of Habitat for Humanity, he was chair of the publicity committee. For the Tryon Swim Club, he was a trustee. Nelson served in the Army Air Corps from 1943 to 1946. His education progressed to a bachelor of science in foreign commerce from Georgetown University and a masters in health care administration from Washington University. His career began in management

with Sears Roebuck and grew to managing hospitals in Wichita, Kan. and Albion, Mich. The Second Wind Hall of Fame is a 30 year old Thermal Belt organization. Its mission is to identify and celebrate those community volunteers who give their time, their talents and their money for the benefit of mankind. Current membership in Second Wind is approaching 180 outstanding volunteers. The Rotary Club is appreciative to member Eloise Johnson for her initiatives to bring to Nelson the honor earned. - article submitted by Larry Poe
