Iashea Pack, 26, of 108 Wolf Branch Road were both arrested and charged with felony manufacturing methamphetamine, felony possession with intent to sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance, felony maintaining a place/dwelling for a schedule II controlled substance and four counts each of misdemeanor child abuse, according to sheriff reports. The Polk County Department of Social Services (DSS) was immediately contacted and took the children into custody, officers said. The meth lab was determined to be one of the largest discovered in Polk County. The method used is referred to as “shake and bake,” with chemicals placed in a plastic drink bottle to create methamphetamine. Officers said one plastic bottle is able to produce approximately three grams of methamphetamine with a street value between $350 (Continued on page 4)

and $400. The mobile home is located in an unnamed mobile home park directly behind Coopers Gap Baptist Church off Coopers Gap Road in Sunny View. This is the eighth meth lab discovered in Polk County this year beginning in January when three separate labs were discovered in the woods in Mill Spring. In June, there were two meth labs discovered near River Road in Tryon. The county’s sixth meth lab this year was discovered in June in the same unnamed mobile home park in Sunny View where a container and propane tanks were found in a field. The county’s seventh meth lab was discovered on July 11 in the Silver Creek Community of Mill Spring. The latest discovery of a meth lab is the county’s 11th discovery since August 2011. Polk County’s largest meth lab in history was discovered in August 2011 in a Sunny View home where children were also found. Officers said Tuesday’s meth lab was comparable in size to the 2011 Sunny View meth lab discovery. Another meth lab was discovered in Green Creek in early November 2011 and the county’s third meth lab of 2011 was discovered in Lynn later in November, all resulting in arrests. Prior to the 2011, no meth labs had been discovered in Polk County since 2007.

“Jesus said to the apostles, ‘Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.’ For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves.” (Mark 6: 31:32) While I rarely, if ever, attempt to speak for someone else, today I am going to make an exception and offer a few thoughts on behalf of my fellow clergy. Surprise! We are human beings with limitations and challenges just like everyone else, and sometimes our skills, training, spiritual strength and pastoral abilities are simply pushed to the limit. I have just recently come back into the church office after a two-week interval

wherein I needed to be alone to calm my mind, tend to my thoughts and prayers, and generally try to get back on center. After three intense months of constant demanding pastoral care and several deaths and funerals on top of the usual day-to-day demands of being a priest and pastor, preacher and writer, husband and father, friend and confidant, I was completely overwhelmed and needed a serious break. Whether one calls it a hiatus, a vacation, a respite, a retreat or Sabbath time the point is the same; clergy are human beings and from time to time we need the opportunity to recoup, regroup and reengage.

We bear the grief and carry the secrets of many individuals, and meanwhile we try to manage our own unruly lives.

In order to maximize the funds that will be available to paramedic Ruff, the raffle has been extended until Saturday, Nov. 3 at noon. Johnny Edney and members of Speedwell provided their

services as part of the musical entertainment. Winky Mintz not only performed, but also provided the sound system for both musical groups. Joel Bradley also provided a tent to cover the stage. Many people contributed desserts for the supper, while Pat Brunch and the ladies of Midway Baptist Church led that effort.

Tryon Arts and Crafts jewelry show open until Nov. 9 Now through Nov. 9, Tryon Arts and Crafts School will feature several local jewelry artisans that transform metal into small works of art. Some of the artists have been studying wire wrapping, chain maille, fold forming, stone cutting and setting and fabricating precious metal in the numerous classes and workshops offered at the school. There are also unusual pieces created by two new jewelry instructors, Danielle Miller and Katie Poterala. Made since 300 AD, Chain Maille is a type of armor consisting of small metal rings linked together in a pattern to form a mesh. Jewelers use the technique to make a variety of intricate chain earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Wire wrapping consists of twirling and twisting of silver wire into intricate bends and loops that create continuous wire designs perfect by themselves or as a setting for

stone or glass gems. Fold forming is a technique where sheet metal (silver, copper, brass or nickel) is folded, and then the edges and folds are hammered to stretch the metal. When the sheet is unfolded the stretched metal opens up into curiously organic forms. Lapidary is the cutting, polishing and faceting of precious and semi-precious stones. Examples of all these techniques will be on display through Nov. 9. Tryon Arts and Crafts School is located at 373 Harmon Field Road in Tryon, N.C. and exists to provide creative opportunities for everyone. Tryon Arts and Crafts School is a non-profit organization and provide’s creative opportunities for everyone through education, instruction and expression of heritage and contemporary arts and crafts in a friendly, stimulating and enriching environment.

The 2012 Foothills CROP Walk Against Hunger honors Dolores Zeece of Holy Cross Episcopal Church and longtime volunteer for CROP Walk. Zeece moved to the Thermal Belt in the early 1990s from Orange County, New York. Zeece had been a long time walker and supporter of CROP Walks in the Hudson Valley. With the support and encouragement of Bob Thompson of Orchard Inn, Zeece became the first CROP Walk Committee Chair and the Polk County CROP Walk was born. The first CROP Walk, held at Stearns Park in the fall of 1994, drew a little less than 100 walkers and the support of many of the area churches. Zeece has been distinguished as the founder of Polk County’s annual community binding event. “I could not have done it without the support of Bob Thompson” stated Zeece at the time. “He had just moved here from Charlotte and had tons of experience and energy. With his help and the help of many others we were able to help so many people.” The Polk County CROP Walk expanded to draw from all our foothills communities in 2010 and also support food missions in Landrum as well as Polk County. The 2012 Chairman Lance Smith said, “This year we are celebrating the beginning of the end to the ravages of poverty both in the foothills and around the world, so it’s fitting that we also honor the person who helped our CROP Walk become the important event that it is today.” The Foothills CROP Walk is among 2,000 such events held around the United States each year. Guided by Church World Service, each CROP Walk donates $3 of every $4 to worldwide hunger, and $1 of every $4 stays in the community where the event is held. Foothills CROP Walk Local contributions will be made to the Thermal Belt Outreach Food Pantry, as well as Operation Hope. Smith also reported a steady
