Tryon Police Chief Jeff Arrowood records speeds near the clocktower in downtown Tryon after Columbus Police Chief Chris Beddingfield clocks them on a radar gun. The two police chiefs said they’re working together to limit speeding in both towns. Beddingfield said the radar was provided through the Governor’s Highway Safety program. Using a speed laser, the device can pick up speeds even in heavy traffic. He said it also goes unnoticed by radar detectors. (photo by Samantha Hurst)

Tryon Pharmacy sold Employees, services to remain same by Leah Justice

Tryon Pharmacy is changing its name to U Save It Pharmacy after being sold on Dec. 3.

U Save It District Manager Justin Harn said the only changes will be in the name, the computer software and bookkeeping. Pharmacist and former owner Rick Henriksen will remain as pharmacist and manager in charge of the

store. All current employees will remain as well, according to Harn. “Our biggest thing is we’re not here to make a bunch of changes,” Harn said. “We’ll have the same friendly faces, same services and same products.” U Save It Pharmacy is based out of Albany, Ga. with pharmacist Fred Sharpe operating since 1979.



U Save It owns 20 stores, mostly in Georgia, but with a store recently purchased in Spartanburg and another in Franklin, N.C. Harn said he currently lives in Georgia but plans to relocated closer to this area in the spring. Tryon Pharmacy began in 1963 and was purchased by Henriksen in 1991.

Columbus Lions support diabetes awareness efforts Curtis Ericson, Lions’ North Carolina chairperson for diabetes awareness, spoke to the Columbus Lions at a recent meeting. Diabetes is a special cause for all Lions, since it is a leading cause of blindness and eye disease. Combating these problems has been a primary goal for Lions since 1925 when Helen Keller challenged them to become “Knights of the Blind.” Ericson told the Lions that every eight seconds, someone in the world dies from the compli-

cations of diabetes. Complications include heart disease, stroke, lower limb amputations and kidney failure. More than 90 percent of those with this disease have Type 2 diabetes. Quite often Type 2 can be prevented by achieving a healthy bodyweight and performing regular moderate physical activity. Indicators include extreme thirst, unexplained weight loss, frequent urination or a family history of diabetes. Ericson asked the Lions

to make a strong commitment to fight diabetes and diabetic eye disease, and to spread awareness throughout their community. The Columbus Lions meet on the first and third Thursday evenings at Calvert’s Restaurant in Columbus, and they encourage anyone interested in community service to visit with them. For information, call Helen Trevathan at 828-894-7062. – article submitted by Helen Trevathan

Terra On Trade to open in Tryon this week by Samantha Hurst

Brooke Walton and John Winchester kept busy Friday, Dec. 7 hanging garments on racks and boards up on the walls as they prepared for Tryon’s Christmas Stroll. The two are opening Terra On Trade, an outdoor lifestyle boutique specializing in gear and clothing for the avid outdoor lover. “We own a paddle shop on Lake Keowee but we were looking for something that would be a more year-round deal,” Walton said. “We checked out several places – Greer, Clemson, even Greenville, but nothing fit like Tryon.” Walton and Winchester own One With the Ride on Lake Keowee where they sell paddleboards and kayaks. They also offer lessons, rentals and paddleboard yoga classes. Winchester said they have already felt a welcoming feeling from those they’ve met in Tryon. Walton said Bill Crowell of Saluda Forge even helped them with unique shelving for the shop. “It [Tryon] seems so much more open-minded and progressive, plus everyone has been so nice and enthusiastic about what

we’re trying to do,” Winchester said. The two plan to sell climbing gear, camping necessities, paddleboards, kayaks, a line of natural soaps, jewelry and clothing among other outdoor-themed items. They will carry clothing lines such as Synergy organic women’s clothing, and Carve Designs, an active apparel company for women. “Their stuff is beautiful – they have great clothes that fit real women,” Walton said. Meanwhile, males will find a unique line of handmade denim clothing from California. Accessories include jewelry made by artisans in Tennessee and the Carolinas, as well as Bali and Guatemala, and handmade bamboo sunglasses, Walton said. The shop will also carry familiar brands such as Kavu and Astral shoes. Terra on Trade plans to open Thursdays-Sundays around noon and remain open until about 7 p.m. each day. The two said they would finalize hours later this week when the shop officially opens. For more information, email

Edward Jones Ranks No. 1 again in national survey For the 18th time, the financial services firm Edward Jones ranked No. 1 in REP magazine’s annual survey of the nation’s six largest financial services firms, according to Jay Geddings and Sue Watson, Edward Jones financial advisors in Polk County, and Christopher Chestnutt, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Landrum. The magazine randomly selects financial advisors nationwide and asks them to rank their firms

in various categories. Edward Jones’ overall score was 9.3 out of 10 possible points. Additionally, 96 percent of respondents said they believe Edward Jones is the best firm to work for in the financial services industry. According to the magazine, the firm’s culture ‘remained a critical key to the firm’s high scores,’ advisors said, praising Edward Jones’ partnership platform and

commitment to clients. Some of Edward Jones’ highest scores were 9.7 for ethics, 9.3 for clarity of client account statements, 9.5 for client access to online account information and 9.7 for the high quality of the firm’s branch office administrators. Reps rated their current employers on 33 items related to their satisfaction. Ratings are based on a 1 to 10 scale, with 10 representing the highest satisfaction level.

In January 2012, for the 13th year, Edward Jones was named one of the best companies to work for by FORTUNE Magazine in its annual listing. The firm ranked No. 5 overall and No. 3 in Large Size Companies. These 13 FORTUNE rankings include top 10 finishes for nine years, consecutive No. 1 rankings in 2002 and 2003, and consecutive No. 2 rankings in 2009 and 2010. - article submitted
