Fire demolishes home in Pea Ridge by Leah Justice

A Pea Ridge family’s home burnt to the ground on Monday, Sept. 24 despite the efforts of about 40 firefighters. No one was injured, but the family lost their dog, Halle, in the fire.

Mill Spring Fire Chief Trent Carswell said his department was dispatched around 3 p.m. to 1151 Manus Chapel Road, where firefighters found the house fully engulfed. The family, consisting of Tom Hix and his daughter’s family,

Michael and Dollie-Brooke Reid and their two children, had just finished moving into the home on Sunday. Carswell said Hix spent some time attempting to extinguish (Continued on page 4)

beautification project was born. School grandparent Billy Price of Price Landscaping was asked to assist with the project and agreed to donate an irrigation system necessary for the hot summer months ahead. Jay Hardin of Jay’s Lawn Service and Landscaping came on board by designing this “evergrowing” project. Hardin removed multiple tree stumps and placed a silt fence donated by The Hay Rack. He also suggested using soil conditioner to ensure the plants donated by Big Frog Nursery would thrive for years to come. Rostick reached out to Bibi Freer of Freer Equine and copious amounts of “conditioner” of a horsy nature were donated. On the day the plants were delivered, third-grade students enjoyed an outdoor class session with Richard Smith to learn about different soil types, how each held water and basic planting skills. In addition, each third-grade student – assisted by a

parent, grandparent or community volunteer – placed a shrub or plant on “their bank.” Once the plants were in place, Henson’s Mulch and More delivered enough mulch to complete not only this project but also to help beautify the school grounds in other areas. To ensure this “little petunia project” took root, Alton Kelley of Kelley’s Computer Solutions donated and installed automatic timers for irrigating the hillside garden. For the finishing touches, James Sheehan of Sheehan Grading assisted by delivering large stones that Jay Hardin placed within the landscape to complement the more than 300 donated plants by Big Frog Nursery. To commemorate this undertaking, a marker will be placed in the garden as a contribution by Bruce Clayton of Clayton Monuments. Kelley and Rostick estimate the cost of this landscape project could have been in excess of $10,000 were it not for the donations made by these local businesses. Finally,

the Tryon community contributed hours of time and energy. McCool said what started out as a little idea to give students an end-of-school project evolved into a lesson about community giving that cannot be taught in books. School Principal Ott Sizemore

has a five-year plan to beautify the grounds at Tryon Elementary. If anyone is interested in donating to the upcoming courtyard project, contact Andrea Webber at 828-8596584 to purchase marked pavers. – article submitted by Scarlette Tapp

New bus stop for Silver Creek Community

Wiley Gainus, who worked for years to improve the Silver Creek Community, formerly Land of Lakes in Mill Spring, stands in front of a new bus stop the community installed this year prior to school starting. The community worked with the county and state to get the state to take over maintenance of its roads, which were in such poor condition buses could not pick up students. The state paved some of the roads with the community continuing to work to get the state to take over all the roads. The Polk County Board of Commissioners recently presented a certificate of appreciation to Gainus’ wife, Irene for Wiley as well as adopting a resolution in appreciation to the N.C.

We can show you the steps to improving your quality of life. Ruth Fulham of Lake Lure has asthma, and her difficulty breathing was increasing her difficulty with daily activities. Her pulmonologist recommended she go to pulmonary rehabilitation. She trusted her community hospital to be there to meet the need, just as it had when her husband needed a knee replacement and when she needed gall bladder surgery. She wasn’t disappointed this time either. “The staff in the cardiopulmonary clinic at Rutherford Regional are very caring and knowledgeable,” Ruth says. “They really enjoy their jobs.” The staff guided her through exercises in the lab that would improve her lung capacity as well as teaching her things she could continue to do at home. “I feel like I’ve really benefitted,” Ruth says. “It is an amazing program.” Rutherford Regional’s Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program provides safe and effective ways for heart and lung patients to return to full, active lives.

Support Tryon’s commercial open house tomorrow

The economic future of downtown Tryon has been a controversial topic in recent months, as several businesses moved out, increasing the number of vacant storefronts on Trade and Pacolet streets. Tryon business owners, town officials, the Tryon Downtown Development Association and other interested parties took action on the issue this summer, starting with a brainstorming session on July 9 at the Tryon Depot. The session, facilitated by Andy Millard of Millard and Company, was attended by approximately 200 people and generated numerous ideas about ways to promote the town’s strengths and address its weaknesses. One of the ideas that emerged from that brainstorming session – the concept of holding a commercial open house that showcase available commercial spaces in the downtown area – is coming to fruition this week. On Thursday, Sept. 27 from 4-7 p.m., properties in Tryon’s Central Business District that are available for rent or sale will be open for interested people to view and discuss possible uses. The volunteers who stepped forward to organize the event are to be commended for taking positive steps to help the town, as are the owners of the properties, town officials and members of the Tryon Downtown Development Association. Their willingness to step up to the plate and not just complain about the situation is admirable. What can we do to help? First, of course, we can do our part to get as many people as possible to attend the commercial open house tomorrow, especially anyone who is considering starting a business in the area. But in the long term, it’s even more important that we buy, whenever possible, our daily necessities, gifts and other items from area businesses, both those that currently exist and any new ones that may be opened in the near future. If we all make sure to look locally first for the things we need, we’ll be more likely to find them here next time we need them. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

‘I got an aunt, she paints real good’ – TPS drawing workshops If you have ever done “plein aire” painting (on location painting outdoors), you’ve probably heard someone, probably a kid, looking over your shoulder say “I got a aunt, she paints real good.” What the art critic probably means is his aunt paints a lot. Many people paint a lot, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they “paint good.” A few years ago, the board of Tryon Painters and Sculptors (TPS) asked Aviva Kahn to be the director of classes and workshops. One person Kahn asked to teach a basic drawing class was a well-known and respected teacher at Isothermal Community College. At first he turned Kahn down the pay wasn’t high enough. Kahn explained that TPS paid according to class size – the larger the class, the higher the pay. The artist called Kahn back later to say he was reconsidering the offer. In his popular painting

“Most of the people in this class at the college, he was frustrated by many in the class who class have confided to me that could apply paint to canvas but their drawing skills have insimply could not draw.

lines and objects diminish in size as they become farther away). With practice, proportions, foreshortening and perspective all start to become second nature to the artist the same way a musician knows notes and chords. “From experience, I can tell you that drawing the human form consistently is one of the best exercises to improve your overall drawing skills,” Kahn said. Everyone is invited to attend TPS workshops. Your skill level is not a factor. Anyone “regular” in the class can help an artist new to life drawing with the fundamentals. Kahn said there is currently a shortage of female models so if you or anyone you know may aspire to be an artist’s model (age and weight are not a deterrent) contact Dick Neff at 864-9153144 or email - article submitted by Aviva Khan

Declarer is playing in six spades and gets the six of hearts opening lead. Playing a contract in a 4-3 fit is called a Moysian fit which was named after Al Moyse, a past editor of Bridge World Magazine and requires delicate play. Many players try to avoid playing Moysian fits, primarily because they haven’t learned about the technique involved in how to maintain control of the hand while drawing trumps. The key to handling a 4-3 fit is to plan your play based on getting no worse than a 4-2 distribution in the suit.

After winning the opening heart lead in his hand, declarer plays a low trump from both hands. Based on the worst case of east holding the spade jack, declarer wins any return by east in his hand by (a) finessing a diamond return then playing a trump the queen and finally returning to his hand via the diamond ace to draw the outstanding trumps prior to returning to dummy via the club king to cash all the remaining diamond winners, or (b) winning the club return in his hand, playing a trump to the queen and finessing for the diamond king and proceeding further as explained in (a), or (c) winning a trump return with the queen in dummy and finesse for the diamond king, cash the ace, draw the remaining trumps and proceeding further as explained in (a).
