Voting for ‘My Favorite President’ at Polk County History Museum The Polk County History Museum in Columbus gave visitors a unique opportunity this election year to vote for their favorite president of the past. With a 1920s era wooden voting box used formerly in Polk County, visitors were asked to vote for their first and second choice past president. The ballet box was closed on Election Day at 1 p.m. so museum curator George Comparetto and wife, Judy, could tally the votes. Election results from the 310 ballots were as follows: 1. Ronald Reagan 2. Franklin Roosevelt 3. Abraham Lincoln 4. George Washington 5. John F. Kennedy 6. George W. Bush 7. Thomas Jefferson (Tie)

7. Harry Truman (Tie) 8. Bill Clinton 9. Dwight Eisenhower 10. Teddy Roosevelt (Tie) 10. Jimmy Carter (Tie) 11. Andrew Jackson 12. Richard Nixon (Tie) 12. James K. Polk (Tie) 12. John Adams (Tie) There were no reported hanging chads or voting machine malfunctions reported. One person said they were voting for Johnson because the voter was a cousin of Lady Bird Johnson. Interestingly enough, the only president who made an official visit to Polk County, George H. W. Bush, scored low on votes. Senior Bush visited a home in Red Fox as vice-president under Reagan for a fundraising event. Calvin Coolidge also scored low; his wife Grace Coolidge was

Tryon Painters and Sculptors student show at Bank of America Students of Lindsey Moore’s Inspired Drawing Class will showcase their work now through Nov. 30 at the Tryon branch of Bank of America. The major theme of the student show is inspired by “Morris,” a giant painted horse created in honor of a pull toy built by Tryon Toy Makers in 1916. Standing in the center of town, Morris has been the town’s official mascot for more than 80 years, symbolizing Tryon’s love of horses and has most recently been awarded a historic marker. Using Morris as a class study in tribute to his eventual return to his spot of honor in downtown Tryon, the students’ work focuses on basic design elements found in the construction of Morris (circles, cylinders, rectangles, rods, etc). Some of the students’ work is framed, some matted and some right out of their sketchbooks. Work is hung on large folding panels along

the side of the bank lobby.

Making time for gratitude more than once a year “In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.” ~ Brother David Steindl-Rast at November and, particularly, Thanksgiving are times we traditionally feel grateful for our family, friends and all the wonderful things we have. Thinking about those things makes us feel happy, so why is it that we do so only once a year? New research shows that counting our blessings more often can relieve anxiety, decrease depression, improve relationships and reduce symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. One study has shown that expressing our gratitude on a daily basis can improve happiness by 25 percent and will make us healthier to boot. If you doubt
