Sisters Brittany and Sarah Phipps plan to embark on a mission trip to Serbia this holiday season with Operation Christmas Child to hand out shoeboxes to children. To make the trip possible, the girls must raise $3,600. Brittany, currently a sophomore at N.C. State University, attends Providence Baptist Church in Raleigh, which is sponsoring the trip.

Tryon council considers Mayor’s ‘round-up’ plan by Leah Justice

Tryon Mayor Alan People’s has proposed a new idea that if approved he said could turn into a grant program for downtown businesses.

The program would ask Tryon water customers to round up their water bills to the next dollar with the extra funding being used to help fund the downtown streetscape.

The program would be voluntary with the town keeping the extra funding in a separate line item and implementing a (Continued on page 4)

those children who don’t have the same things we have. I’m so excited to witness the children’s excitement.” The sisters are not new to mission trips as they volunteered in China in the summer of 2011. While there, they helped host a basketball camp as a way to share the news of Christ to the people of Xi’an, China. The girls say throughout the trip they developed close relationships to the six Chinese translators and 10 Chinese coaches, as well as more than 150 Chinese basketball students. The Phipps also traveled to Helena, Ark. this past summer to conduct backyard Bible schools with Richmond First Baptist Church in Virginia. Brittany taught swimming lessons during the week and Sarah worked with preschool children. Sarah said she is particularly

excited about the trip to Serbia because she will be staying with a Serbian host family; in China they stayed in hotels. “I truly think this will be an amazing opportunity to give out the shoe boxes I have packed my whole life and get to tell children the Christmas story for them to hear it for the first time,” said Sarah. This will be the 12th time Providence Baptist Church in Raleigh has traveled to Backi Petrovac, Serbia. While the volunteers are there they will come into contact with anywhere from 2,000 to 6,000 children. For eight days the Phipps will hand out shoeboxes filled with items like small toys, crayons, stuffed animals and candy. They will also have the chance to share the gospel of Christ, according to Brittany. The Phipps will travel with a team of 15 people from Providence church. The Phipps will depart from Raleigh-Durham International

committee to oversee the funds. Peoples said when the account has $3,000 or so, the town could have businesses apply for a grant, which would be 50/50 matching. His idea is for the grants not to exceed $1,500 with a business only being awarded a grant every three years. Peoples said about a year ago he went to a presentation by then Mayor Robert Parton of Scotland Neck regarding ways to raise funds to help with the downtown streetscape. Scotland Neck officials came upon the idea of a round up to help merchants with a range of improvements from minor repairs to sidewalks, façade upgrades and awnings, according to Peoples. “The idea is fairly simple,” Peoples said. “We ask the people who are on our water to agree to round-up to the next dollar for each of their 12 bills per year. It is strictly voluntary. The funds would then be kept in a separate line item and a committee of about five or six people would oversee it.” Tryon has approximately 2,000 water customers on its

Peggy Kuykendall Dowda McSwain, 69, of Englewood, Fla., formerly of Columbus, passed away, Friday morning, November 9, 2012 in Port Charlotte Hospice House, Port Charlotte, Fla. Born in Landrum, S.C., she was the daughter of the late Bill and Ina Mae Benson Kuykendall and widow of Gerald Dowda and George McSwain.

system. Peoples said he believes at least 25 percent of those customers would sign up for the round up. He said chances are likely that most bills would probably never be on an equal dollar. “Based on a strict guess, I estimate that approximately half would be above 50 cents and half below 50 cents,” Peoples said. “If my guess is correct we could have between $200 and $300 each month to put into the account. In a year it would be hoped that more would sign up for the round up and that the account would continue to grow.” Peoples’ idea for the committee is that it could be made up of a council member or the manager, a businessperson, a member of the Tryon Downtown Development Association, a member of the Tryon Tourism Development Authority and a citizen at large from inside the town limits and a citizen at large from the township. The idea has not yet been discussed publicly but Peoples recently distributed his idea to town council for their thoughts. Tryon council’s next meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m.

Inaugural Beer Festival crowd. (photo by David Widdicombe)

Inaugural Tryon Beer Festival welcomes crowd Nov. 10 Tap workers poured libations enthusiastically Saturday, Nov. 10 as more than 400 people, including at least 100 out-of-town visitors, enjoyed the first annual Tryon Beer Fest at the Tryon Depot Plaza. “Our inaugural beer fest has now become our first annual,” said Chair Shelly Block. “I’ve been to tons of beer fests and by far this was the classiest of them all. This was my feeling and that of dozens whom I spoke with. The breweries commented that the Tryon crowd was awesome.” Jay Adams, former North Carolina Brewer of the Year,

had some early-on doubts for the success of the event. He softened along the way and gained enthusiasm. “The beer fest exceeded my most optimistic expectations,” Adams said. “It was the best I have ever been to, and I have been to very, very many.” Adams enrolled 30 members for his new home brew club, YEAST, Youthful and Elder Ale Sippers of Tryon. Beer Fest committee member Kim Nelson said only minor matters need to be cleared up (Continued on page 7)

Following, the Foothills Oompah Band played and sang more than 50 toetapping, head-bobbing, rhythmic clapping numbers. More than 250 attendees voted for their favorite beer. The runaway 1-2 winners were Pacolet Amber made by Jay Adams for the Mighty Pacolet Brewing Company and BottleTree’s Im-

Emcee Dan Trumble declared, “With the assortment of good beer made in Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina, we are now free from our dependence on foreign beer.” With help from sponsors and contributors, a preliminary financial report indicated that the Tryon Downtown Development Association would net about $5,000 from the event. Proceeds will apply toward projects to improve the appearance and facilities of the town. – article submitted

Whatever happened to your dad’s alligator? Twice-told Tales of the Dark Corner by Dean Campbell

“I thoroughly enjoy your Dark Corner tales in the Bulletin every month, but...” and here, the slightly graying, fortyish fellow in the Wells Fargo parking lot allowed his voice to drop quite low. “But, what?” I asked. “Well, the old tales are great, but there’s a lot of newer ones out there that you haven’t told yet,” he said. “Some I remember happening when I was a small kid or a teenager. For instance, whatever happened to your dad’s alligator?” I learned that he had visited with my father, Alex “Little Elec” Campbell, at his small gas station on Highway 11 at Tugaloo Road, many times as a young boy in the 1960s. He liked to listen to my dad relate some of the old tales that I have written about in the past couple of years. “My family moved away from the Dark Corner to the Clinton area in the late 1970s, but we still visited relatives up here fairly often through the years. Mr. Campbell closed his small gas station, but I heard about his finding an alligator in Highway 11 in front of his house,” he said. He was right. In the summer of 1978, my father was taking his usual mid-day rest, when a young

fellow traveling on the highway stopped his car and came running to my dad’s door. “You better come out here, sir. There’s an alligator crossing the road right in front of your house, and coming into your front yard,” he shouted. My dad was always a man of integrity and didn’t want to call the young fellow a liar. He knew there are some large timber rattlesnakes, bears, wild pigs and even seldomseen panthers in the Corner, but certainly not any alligators. (Well, there was that one incident years ago of a small one that local private pilot Mass Atkins brought back from Florida and put into the family’s pasture pond. But the family insisted he remove it immediately.) When my dad got out to the roadway, he couldn’t believe his eyes. It really was an alligator. Not a baby one; it was almost 5 feet long. It looked mean, and must have been in a fight with another alligator, because it was missing a foot. The young man offered to help my dad capture the rough-skinned critter, but how? “Come with me,” said my dad. “I think I know the best way to do with it so that neither one of us will get hurt.” They went into the large wellhouse and one-car garage in back of the family residence and removed a large storage box that was used to hold wheat. Luckily, it was empty during the summer. They brought the large box, upside

down, to the front yard and very carefully dropped it over the alligator, making it impossible to move in any direction. Pushing on the sides of the box, the alligator would move beneath it, and they were able to slowly get the box-covered critter to the side yard. What to do with the critter, dad thought. He certainly didn’t want to keep it for a pet. Besides it was too big to stay put in the box if it were turned right side up again. He could feed it a chicken or a piece of beef, but how would he give it necessary water? He thought over the situation the rest of the day and overnight. The next day, he contacted David Meeks in the Inman area, to see if he would like to add the alligator to his collection of animals. David did, and sent a truck with two assistants to bring the critter to his menagerie.

After noting the condition of the leg with a missing foot, it was determined that the alligator probably had been chained by that foot and had lost it when escaping the shackle. More than likely, the critter had been poached and was being carried, chained, in an open truck bed when it made its escape dropping out of the truck onto the highway. The alligator joined two others at David’s animal farm, a small menagerie, which has grown into a vast Hollywild Animal Park that is widely known throughout the United States and the world today. I’m not schooled in the life spans of alligators, but if you’re reading this, and decide to visit Hollywild and its magnificent display of holiday lights this season, you might pause at the amphibian pond and see if one of the alligators is missing a foot. If so, say “Hi” for my dad.

Guests and volunteers share in ‘Saluda’s Welcome Table’ Forty guests and volunteers shared in a free, home-cooked dinner at Saluda’s Welcome Table Tuesday, Oct. 30. The menu included lasagna, salad, fresh-baked bread and a choice of desserts, all prepared and served by volunteers whose aim is to provide a weekly free meal to the Saluda community. “We know there are individuals and families in our community who are hungry and would benefit from a free meal,” said one volunteer. “But there are also those who feel lonely or disconnected. Our hope is that a weekly gathering around a shared table can help meet those needs as well.” Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 20, dinners will be served from 5:30-7 p.m. in the fellowship hall of Saluda United Methodist Church. Saluda’s Welcome Table is a community effort. Everyone is welcome. For more information, call 828749-9764. – article submitted by Cindy Hemenway

Tap into Tryon potential On a beautiful, almost summer-like day, hundreds of people gathered in downtown Tryon to tap into the inaugural Tryon Beer Festival and into the potential of Tryonites’ creativity. The day offered everything – scenic mountain views, savory morsels of German food, flowing brews from both nationally-known and locally-favored brewers and intriguing demonstrations. Event interest not only drew people from nearby towns of Landrum and Columbus, but also from further away reaches like Roebuck, S.C. Area residents also brought friends and families to the festival from as far as Atlanta and Savannah, Ga. Why should this matter to you? Members of Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) and other interested parties banned together to make this event happen for more than just the fun of getting together a large group of people over a common interest. They put this event together – spending months calling breweries and organizing every last detail – to attract more people to the Tryon area. While many of the visitors were occupied tasting samples of beers like Pumpkin Ale and Pacolet Amber, and not necessarily perusing shops, they did see the atmosphere of Tryon on a beautiful weekend. They saw the stores and restaurants once again filling main street windows, and hopefully, will be intrigued enough to come back to shop for Christmas presents or spend a weekend next summer in the mountains. TDDA expects to bring in around $5,000 from this event to put toward future promotion of the town. The impact goes beyond this dollar amount though. TDDA and its promotions committee want to attract people to town and they deserve credit for the energy they put into this and other events like the Halloween Stroll and Tryon Gallery Trots. Next up, the Christmas Stroll. - Tryon Daily Bulletin editorial staff

I feel your pain To the editor: I read Mr. Poliakoff’s letter to the editor decrying “Shame on you, America.” And I must tell you I feel your pain and I’m not being sarcastic. It’s the same pain and disgust that I felt when George W. Bush was re-elected. It’s gut wrenching, I know. You want to throw up your hands, look Letter for another country to the to live in and cry Editor that you (that would be anyone other than me) got what you deserved! Well, we survived (I almost said “barely” but I contained myself) two terms of Bush and you will indeed survive Obama’s second term. If you want solace, you should keep in mind that unless these two dysfunctional houses of congress get off their high horses and work together for compromise, it doesn’t really matter who the president is because nothing will get done. It’s forgotten in the macho “my way or the highway” approach to politics that has been

so popular on both sides of the aisle in the last few decades but compromise is what democracy is all about. It’s not about standing up for what you believe. It’s accepting that other people may have different beliefs and those beliefs are just as valid as yours. And in reality, the purpose of compromise is not to make everyone happy; the purpose of compromise is to make all parties equally unhappy; but at least have a resolution that both sides can live with – that’s democracy. I’m sorry you’re unhappy, Mr. Poliakoff. If Governor Romney had won, I would have been unhappy. Not as unhappy as I was eight years ago, but unhappy nonetheless. But from here, let’s just agree to disagree and not close our minds. If we work together starting in this county, maybe something can get accomplished that will make you less unhappy and give me something I can live with it. I’d be okay with that and hopefully, so would you. - Elvin Clark, Tryon

Local artists, Gleason and Link, host pottery event Nov. 17 Ann Gleason and Cynthia Link will hold their annual pottery sale at Gleason’s Studio at 35 Erskine Rd. in Tryon on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Gleason has been a potter and clay artist in Tryon for almost 30 years. “I started this pottery sale in Saluda in 1996, then held it at Harmon Field for a few years. This year we are moving it to my studio,” Gleason said. “Cynthia and I will have lots of functional stoneware pottery for sale as well as sculptural works on exhibit.” Gleason said her work is decorated with animal motifs: cats, chickens and rabbits and the occasional horse, as well as works a pure texture and color representative of life as she knows it here in Tryon. Link works in many similar themes as well being an avid animal rescuer and owner of a menagerie of dogs and cats where

Bridge Players Corner by Karl Kachadoorian

South arrived at six spades and received the queen of diamonds opening lead. With a potential loser in both red suits declarer had to look for a way to find a parking place for a least one of those losers. The most obvious place in this hand to find a possible extra trick would be in the club suit, if the suit broke 3-3. However without the benefit of being able to see the opponents cards, a good declarer should look for another line of play as a first line of offense, with the club suit breaking favorably as a fallback plan if the other line didn’t prove to be successful. So what is the alternate line of offense? I hope you arrived at trying for a possible squeeze play against one of the opponents. Some players consider a squeeze play as a difficult maneuver to implement. However they are mistaken since, except for the exotic types of squeeze plays, most simple squeeze

plays just happen on there own - if. The “if” is that declarer must set the stage properly for the squeeze to develop. To set the stage in this hand declarer wins the opening lead, draws trumps and exits in diamonds. The purpose of this exiting maneuver is to rectify the count for a squeeze, which will occur if either defender holds the K-Q of hearts and four clubs. Failing to lose a trick early, the key play, will provide the potential victim with an idle card that could be pitched on the last trump winner to avoid being squeezed. By rectifying the count, once declarer plays out all his trumps east will be forced to depart with one of his previously guarded cards and declarer will make his contract. If the squeeze didn’t mature then declarer would have to fall back on getting a favorable club break which as the cards lay would not have been successful.
