the changes in food preparation techniques, while keeping public health and safety in mind.” The new food code represents the most comprehensive change in North Carolina’s food protec(Continued on page 10)

nized as a high school – grades 1 through 11. Silver Creek Community School consolidated with Mill Spring in 1931. In 1934, W.H. “Shorty” McDonald, who later became well known in Tryon, became principal. (McDonald later became an executive at the Southern Mercerizing Plant in Tryon.) During the mid 1930s, possibly because of a low number of students or economic reasons, high school students attended Stearns School in Columbus. However, McDonald and the residents of Mill Spring fought to have the students returned to Mill Spring High School, and the students were allowed to return in 1938. A tragedy hit the school in 1940, when the north wing of the school was destroyed by fire. Again the high school students were forced to return to Stearns. The lower grades attended

grounds near the south wing to provide room and board for teachers who couldn’t travel daily the distance from their homes to the school. A big oak tree

still stands close to the site. The teacherage was later torn down to provide more playground space. (Continued on page 4)

Near the end of 1940, a new north wing was built by the W.P.A. under McDonald’s lead-

ership. The class of 1942 was the first to graduate from the new school. In 1943, J.W. Gantt replaced McDonald as principal. Gantt later became superintendent of

Polk County Schools. At that time Tryon was its own city school district. In 1945, Stanley L. Walkerowicz became principal. About this time many changes begin to

happen. A new era in education began in 1946 with the addition of a 12th grade. Thus there was no graduating class that year. In (Continued on page 6)

1947, the first class attending school for 12 years graduated. During the years of 1947 and 1948, the high schools at Stearns and Sunny View were closed and consolidated with Mill Spring. Like any consolidation, this one had its issues, but with the guidance of Walkerowicz and other leaders of the school the issues were resolved. The school had limited physical resources, but the students, with the help of Frances Walkerowicz and many other teachers, put in place various activities and programs. The school’s paper, “The Echo,” and the school’s annual (yearbook), “The Keen Age,” were initiated. Activities included the annual Halloween carnival, May Day activities such as “the dance around the May Pole” and the selection of the May Day queen and court (Ruth Price was one of the first queens). Mill Spring also held the junior-senior banquet and the school play. The physical resources for athletics were practically nonexistent. The Mill Spring “Indians” had no gymnasium and basketball practice had to be done on clay (later concrete) on an outside court. Home games were played in gymnasiums at Stearns, Green Creek and Tryon. In spite of the handicaps they endured, both the boys and girls did well in basketball, winning in conference and tournament play. Within Polk County the schools were Mill Spring, Green Creek, Saluda and Tryon. Although Walkerowicz and others found a way for the school to create a football size field with the hope that the Polk County School Board would fund a football team, the only sport played on it was baseball. School board members said there were not enough funds to allow for a football team. That didn’t mean Mill Spring didn’t have boys who could hold their own in a football game. One year Tryon didn’t have enough

Mill Spring High School Alma Mater Where the hills of North Carolina, Rim the Cloudless blue Proudly stands our Mill Spring High School, Glorious in view. Raise her banner, bear it onward, Over hill and vale, While our hearts and voices echo, Hail, ole Mill Spring Hail! As we travel through the ages, We will ever view, The good school that led us onward, Alma Mater true. As our footsteps ‘neath her portals, Tread through all years, Still our memories dear shall linger, Through life’s smiles and tears.” players and they asked for some of the Mill Spring boys to come over and be on their team. Brothers Robert and Edgar Bowyer and twin brothers Herman and Furman Walker proved to be some of the best players on that team. The class of 1960 was the last class to graduate from Mill Spring High School. The next year all the high schools in Polk County, with the exception of Tryon, were consolidated into one high school at Polk Central. The elementary school continued to operate in the Mill Spring School building. In 1993, the elementary school also closed, and the Mill Spring School closed its doors forever. Students who graduated from Mill Spring read like a Who’s Who of Polk County. They proved to have a profound effect on the professions they chose and the communities they live in. – article submitted by Ted Owens

Spread the word – flag display is a big deal We’ve many times before touted the uniqueness of the national treasures inside the House of Flags, but once again we find ourselves compelled to remind you of the importance of this beautifuly renovated building in Columbus and the contents it displays. From Oct. 10-13 the House of Flags Museum will serve as home to six flags from the White House administation of the 34th President Dwight D. Eisenhower. According to Robert Williamson, this is the first and possibly only time these flags will be available for public viewing and each of them represents considerable national significance. The six include the 48-star, 49-star and 50-star flags, which were created as new states, including Hawaii, joined our great nation. We’re not sure if everyone realizes the enormous honor it is for our county to serve as home to these national treasures. How often does a rural community like ours have the chance to offer a view of such historically significant items to the rest of our state and nation? Now we should jump at the chance to tell the world what we have in our midst. Let’s invite history buffs from all over to come and view these flags for themselves. What a way to grab attention for our local community and show off the hard work of numerous volunteers who made the House of Flags possible in the first place. Hopefully, while those history fanatics are here they might also grab a bite to eat, fill up their tank and even take in the sights in other areas of our great community. We’ve obviously got a lot to offer here in our area. You should also take advantage of this unique exhibit by visiting at any point from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. between Oct. 10-13.

Help save Polk County To the Editor: At the Oct. 1, 2012 commissioners’ meeting, Ted Owens broke one of the commissioners’ own rules and added to the meeting agenda without any notice to the public or media, sending the Mountain and Ridgeline Protection Ordinance back to the planning board to rescind it – in other words, to kill it. Tom Pack quickly seconded the motion, therefore leaving Polk County’s beautiful mountains without any protection at all from another Chocolate

Drop-like development. Renée McDermott pleaded with them to follow the commissioners’ rules and wait just one more meeting so that the public could be notified about it. Owens and Pack refused. This shows a disregard for true democracy and liberty. How can we have a truly democratic government in Polk County if all the people are not given the right to information that will affect them? Please don’t reward this type of bullying or the ugly liberty ads. Vote for Renée McDermott for good, open, clean Polk County government. – Flo Sommerich, Tryon

Letter to the Editor

Why vote Republican? To the Editor: I am writing in response to A. Volpe’s letter on page 8 of the Wednesday, Sept 26 Bulletin.

Letter to the Editor

Why do we do what we do? To the Editor: Why do we do what we do, and how do we know our work is not in vain? My colleagues at Steps to HOPE and I oftentimes ask ourselves this very question. We do what we do because we see the tragedy of domestic violence on a daily basis. We listen to victims and try to help them gain understanding, stability and peace through the



Why vote Republican? Reply: there is a Judgment Day. And no Christian can vote for a Democrat. Democrats are for abortion and same sex marriage. Thou shall not kill, and marriage is between one man and one woman. Four years ago to the day under Bush, the average gas price was $1.84 per gallon.

I believe in God. There will be a Judgment Day. By God’s word, there is no way, no how I could vote Democrat on this and be a Christian. May God have mercy on me, a sinner. I am in no way perfect. But anyone can see that we need a change. God will hold us accountable for what we vote for. There will be a Judgment Day,

and with God, you cannot lose. I can do nothing without God. But with God, I can do anything. May God bless America again. I believe in God. Can God depend on you? Vote on His word. Thank you, and thank God. Believe in God’s instructions. – H. Johnson, Tryon

services that we offer them. And, we know our work is not in vain because, from time to time, a survivor will write one of us a note that makes our efforts all worthwhile. Such is the following I received recently: “I wish I could give you something or do something special for you for being there for my children and myself. The fact that (all of you) care so tremendously about us and show so much love and respect makes me feel good about myself and gives me such an awesome selfesteem boost each day. [You

are] my role model that I’ve never had; [you are] genuine, dependable and honest at all times.… I want you to know that for the rest of my life, I will always remember my experience here with you and these superwomen as a motivating, positive and empowering time in my life that is now a little happier and less stressful. I will continue to pray for each and every one of you. God bless!” This is our motivation and our reward. – Rachel Ramsey, Steps to HOPE

Key provisions of the new North Carolina Food Code include the following: • Each food establishment will be required to demonstrate knowledge of food protection by passing an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited exam. This requirement will be phased in and become effective Jan. 1, 2014. • Each food establishment will be required to develop and adhere to an Employee Health Policy to prevent and control the transmission of illness. • Food establishments will be required to refrain from handling exposed, ready-to-eat foods with bare hands. • Food establishments will be required to decrease the temperature of refrigerated foods and must date-mark open, ready-toeat foods.

tion standards in more than 30 years and establishes rules and provisions to help avoid foodborne illnesses like noroviruses and salmonella. Under the new rules, employees must avoid handling readyto-eat food with their bare hands and all restaurants must have a certified food protection manager during hours of operation. Restaurants owners also must establish employee health policies to ensure that an ill employee who has the potential to contaminate food is not involved in the preparation or serving of food. Restaurant rating systems also will change under the new food code. Although sanitation rating cards showing the grade and score will continue to be posted, restaurants will no longer earn a bonus for completing voluntary food safety training, since training will now be required. “Our inspectors have spent the last year learning the new rules and how to administer them,” Hines said. “We have also worked with our local food provider community to help them make the transition to the new system.” Another change people will notice is that local food trucks

Letter to the Editor

Cold War vets To the Editor: Cold War veterans are those who served honorably in the armed forces in the Cold War era between September 1945 and December 1991. They represent a wide assortment of veterans, including Korean and Vietnam War vets, those who served on remote mountaintops, flew reconnaissance missions and trained in the swamps and deserts.  A certificate has been issued to these brave individuals, but the American Cold War Veterans Service Organization is pushing for a day of remembrance on May 1 and the Cold War Service Medal to accompany the certificate. The movement has been blocked and stalled in Congress. Any letters, emails or calls to your local representative in support of this cause would be greatly appreciated. – Harold “Skip” Love, Columbus

Lady Wolverines volleyball team wins three, 3-0, 3-0, 3-0 by Elizabeth Trautman

Polk County’s Lady Varsity Volleyball Team had three straight conference wins last week. The team won the first three games in the matches, putting them at 10-0 in their league and 14-4 overall. Polk took on the Madison Patriots from Marshall, N.C. on Tuesday, Sept. 25, winning the first game 25-10, the second 25-11 and the third 25-15. Madison struggled to return the ball, and when they did, Polk was ready, finishing the match with a total of 44 kills and 36 digs. “We are focusing on playing to the end and not rushing through the season,” Coach Heather Claussen said. “The girls are really intent on

finishing well this year and we’re putting emphasis on staying as mentally tough as we are physically tough.” Two days later, on Sept. 27, the Lady Wolverines traveled to Burnsville to take on the Mountain Heritage Cougars. Again, Polk County left with a straight 3-0 victory. The ladies had 34 kills for the match, 10 by senior Katie Ruff and nine by Polk sophomore Sarah Phipps. The Wolverines marked 44 digs, led by sophomore Kara Overholt, who had 13 digs for the match. The games’ final scores were 25-18, 25-18 and 25-10. Then while playing at home on Tuesday, Oct. 2, the Lady Wolver(Continued on page 21)

ines brought in another 3-0 win against Mitchell’s Mountaineers from Bakersville. The final scores of 25-9, 25-12, and 25-12 made it evident that Polk County was the more developed and skilled team. Chelsea Kelly, a Polk County High School senior, served three aces. In the win, Polk had 28 total kills, seven aces served and 25 digs. Polk County also won a nonconference match against Brevard’s Blue Devils, 3-1, on Monday, Oct. 1. The Lady Wolverines had several close games, 25-20, 22-25, 25-23 and finished for the win with a game of 27-25. Savannah Deaver, a senior, had 14 of the team’s 47 total kills and Shayln Brown, also a senior, had 23 of the team’s 72 digs. With just a few more matches to go, Polk County will be watching to see if the Wolverines will remain undefeated in conference before playoffs begin.

Peace Corps volunteer to speak at Lanier Library Oct 16 The Lanier Library’s Brown Bag Lunch series on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at noon will feature Peace Corps volunteer and world traveler Alison Cook. Cook began her traveling by visiting Scotland and England after graduating from Terra Ceia Christian School in Pantego, N.C. in 1995. After graduating from Mount Olive College, she took to the road again in 2002 and has been working abroad or traveling much of her time since then. She will speak of her travels and life in the Peace Corps. Describing her motivation to work abroad, she said, “After Sept. 11, 2001, I wanted to serve my country but was not wanting to join the military. I researched ways how I can serve my country and make a difference in the lives of others. I found the website for Peace Corps and knew it was what I wanted to do. I applied

in January of 2002 and was accepted in July of 2002 and left for Kazakhstan in October of 2002.” After two months of pre-service training, Cook moved to Taldykorgan, Kazakhstan, where she served for two years as a teacher of environmental education and English. “I got close to my host family and learned to speak Russian,” Cook said. “In December 2004 my assignment finished and I flew home. I worked with the school system for a while and then went to Granada, Spain in 2010 to earn my TEFL International TESOL Certificate.” In 2011, Cook was asked to go back to Kazakhstan with Peace Corps Response to teach

university level English. “I taught for three months before being evacuated. Peace Corps in Washington, D.C. felt Kazakhstan was no longer a safe place for Peace Corps to serve so all 120 of Peace Corps volunteers and Peace Corps Response volunteers were evacuated,” Cook said. “I was then asked by Peace Corps Response to do a short assignment in the country of Georgia. I taught English with the Department of Ministry of Protected Areas and at Sataplia and Promethius Protected Areas from April 2012 to July 2012. Cook said when she is not with Peace Corps or Peace Corps Response, she enjoys traveling overseas to see new places and

‘It’s awful hard to scare a fearless man’ Another ghost story often told by Scout Executive Lawrence L. Stanley during Camp Old Indian campfires happened to a member of his family in the mountains of northern Georgia. Many mountain communities in the early part of the 20th century had a few men who had the reputation of not being afraid of men, beasts or ghosts. It was said that such men never lost their courage in the face of danger, or in the unexpected appearance of ghosts or strange sights or sounds. One such man, Warren Smith, was a school teacher who labored to educate children of the mountains in a one-room school, which was part of an old, formerly abandoned farm house known as “the Tucker place.” The house was turned into a church and school for part of the year, but remained empty otherwise. Through the former years of abandonment, some folks had considered the house and adjacent family cemetery to be “hainted,” even though no one knew for sure what the ghost looked like. Since Mr. Smith was a strict disciplinarian, most of the students, and many people in the community, felt that he fitted the description of a fearless man. Six young men determined to try him out. Mr. Smith was fond of visiting the parents of children in his school on fair weather evenings. One of his favorite homes to visit was that of the Kirby family, since he and Mr. Kirby had lively discussions, which would continue until past bedtime for most mountain families. The six young men knew Mr. Smith’s habits well. The next time he visited the Kirby home on a moonlit night, they passed the word that the stretch of road nearest to the old house and cemetery would be the scene of an attempt to make the fearless

The hand with the knife shot up in lightning slashes at the bag of leaves, which was cut to pieces, spilling out all of them. The victim completely ignored the astonished whispers of the ambushing gang. They told in later years that the teacher did not pause for an instant. The footsteps continued up the road at the same walking pace. The whistling never ceased until the teacher went around a curve and it faded in the distance. The ambushers stood crestfallen beside the road, with one of them still holding the rope in his hands. After a long, reflective pause, the leader of the gang spoke: “Grandpa was right. It’s awful hard to scare a fearless man.”

South arrived at a 4 Spade contract after a very spirited auction with both sides bidding their hands to the maximum. Looking at all four hands, it’s easy for you to see that declarer is not an odds-on favorite to make his contract. But declarer can’t see all four hands so you might think he is going down. Don’t bet on it. Declarer is an experienced warrior and one of the things he has learned is that you don’t have to see all four hands to come up with a winning line of play. What you have to do on every hand is to faithfully practice listening to the bidding to help guide you in placing cards in the opponents hands. West led a Heart and after East won the trick he shifted to the 3 of Clubs. Taking full advantage of the information gained from the bidding, declarer went up with the Club Ace. He then cashed the Jack of Spades and led a Diamond to the King and East’s Ace. Declarer ruffed the Heart return in the dummy, cashed the Diamond Queen and ruffed a Diamond in his hand. He then reentered dummy with a trump and led dummy’s last Diamond. East won the trick with his 10 while declarer discarded a Club, which forced East to concede a ruff-sluff since all he had left in his were Hearts. This move allowed declarer to shed his last Club and make his contract. Based on the information gained from the bidding, this hand played just like a double-dummy problem for declarer.
