Landrum works to lower cost of depot project by Samantha Hurst

Landrum City Council members stopped short of awarding a contract to Daniel Owens Contracting for renovations to the city’s historic depot last week.

“They wanted to see if we could fine-tune the proposal a little bit and squeeze a little bit more savings out of it,” said City Administrator Steve Wolochowicz. Council members first

approved a bid from Daniel Owens Contracting in July of this year amounting to $415,667. At the time Owens’ bid was the lowest of (Continued on page 3)

three submitted, despite it coming in $115,000 over what council originally anticipated spending. What council didn’t realize until later in the month was that Owens’ calculations were off and didn’t include some elements council expected. This caused council members to toss the proposal and put the project back out for bid. This time only two bids were submitted and again Owens came in the lowest. Owens’ bid this go around was for $442,669, while Sossamon Contractors came in with a bid of $464,420. The difference between the two was over $20,000. Wolochowicz said council has been reluctant to push the project further at such a high cost. Earlier in the year, council approved a bond issue in the amount of $300,000 for the project. The bond is scheduled to be repaid over the course of seven

years with hospitality tax funds. While Wolochowicz said the city has additional monies in the hospitality tax fund to cover the project over and above $300,000, council is attempting to push the total cost closer to that number. “I think they are looking at everything and anything to possibly do that,” Wolochowicz said. “There are a lot of things the council may consider including possibly eliminating the circular pergola that was proposed for outside the depot. That alone could save $55,000.” Wolochowicz said council is considering changes to everything from using different hardware and lighting fixtures to making changes to the type of ceiling that will be installed. Council requested that Wolochowicz sit down with architect John Walters and Owens to look at other methods of cutting costs. Wolochowicz said he hopes to bring their suggestions and a lower bid back to council at its next meeting Jan. 8. He said the project is a little

under the gun though because construction products are expected to rise as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The demand for plywood, for example, could skyrocket as insurance claims for structures in

the northeast are processed allowing business owners and homeowners to begin making repairs. Owens’ proposal accounts for construction time taking about 180 days or six months to complete.

Two car collision

A two-car collision in Landrum resulted in one male motorist being airlifted to the hospital Tuesday, Dec. 18. Unconfirmed reports said that the second motorist, a female, was killed in the crash but authorities could not be reached at press time. The wreck blocked traffic along Hwy. 14 in front of Fred’s. Two women said they were shopping when they heard what sounded “like a bomb going off” when the cars collided. (photo by Anne Regan)

Fox. “We need servers, kitchen help and clean up crew members.” Fox said the Shepherd’s Feast also needs unwrapped toys to give to the children who attend, and donors can drop the toys off between 1- 3 p.m., Monday, Dec. 24 at the Polk County Middle School. Fox modeled the Shepherd’s Feast on Hendersonville’s Bounty of Bethlehem, which is hosting its 28th dinner this Christmas. Last year about 600 volunteers made it possible for more than 900 people to sit down for dinner in Hendersonville, and another 1,800 delivered meals. All in all, Buncombe County serves approximately 3,000 meals to people eating in the dining room, volunteers, and delivered and takehome meals. “I used to volunteer there as part of the wait staff,” Fox said. “I was paired with a lady who’d recently lost her husband and wanted to be

around people during Christmas.” Fox thought the Carolina Foothills needed something similar, especially with so many retired people in the area, although the Shepherd’s Feast is for anyone of

any age or background who wants to share a Christmas dinner with others. The first year we had 85 people sit down for dinner and provided another 35 take-out meals to Steps

to Hope and a few other places,” Fox said. “Thermal Belt Outreach took the leftovers.” Last year the Shepherd’s Feast (Continued on page 6)

had more than 300 people sit down, and this year they expect even more. People come in and out during the three hours, so everyone is not eating at the same time. “We prepare for a certain number,” Fox said. “If we don’t meet that quota we send the leftover food to places like Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry and other nonprofits. Last year we even sent food to Polk County Jail.” The Shepherd’s Feast was not always at the Polk County Middle School. For the first two years, the Congregational Church in Tryon provided space. The move to the school last year was to draw a larger and more diverse group of people. “The principal, Hank Utz, is letting us have it at the school again this year,” Fox said. “He’s a really great guy and even helps us in the kitchen.” The school already has a tree, but volunteers add more Christmas decorations for the dinner. “Giardini’s Trattoria co-owner Mary Lyth has provided a lot of the decorations,” Fox says. A lot of volunteers work hard to pull off this local holiday social event, and more are needed to serve as waiters, kitchen help and musicians. Lyth also heads up the kitchen, coordinates people and

brings in other professional chefs as volunteers. “She does a fabulous job of spearheading what has to be done in the kitchen,” Fox says. Shane Blackwell of Mountain View BBQ and Deli in Columbus prepares the turkeys in a smoker that will cook 20 at a time. “Debbie Thomas of the Wildflour Bakery in Saluda provides a lot of the bread and rolls we need,“ Fox said. “And they’re good rolls, too.” Thermal Belt Outreach helps put up posters and mail about a hundred letter to churches, businesses and the like. The Shepherd’s Feast is a community effort for community residents. Since no one pays to attend the Shepherd’s Feast, Fox relies on gifts from individuals and businesses and in-kind donations from IGA and other grocery stores. Volunteers gather on prep day and on Christmas morning to cook, carve turkeys and generally make sure everything is ready. There is even free transportation available for anyone who needs it. “It’s pretty darned good,” Fox said of the dinner. “In fact, it’s a great event!” Join the community celebration as a diner, donor or volunteer. Call Fox at 828-859-9979 for more information. – article submitted by Duncan Ely

Ours School resource officers could enhance protection of students Anxiety was high Monday morning as parents across our area, as well as our country, dropped their kids off at school. Our reporter, Leah Justice, witnessed it first-hand as she took her own son to school. She saw parents visibly crying as they walked back to their cars. It’s likely almost every one of us has pondered school safety since the Sandy Hook school shooting last week. We all want to know what can be done to better protect our children and our dedicated teachers. Sandy Hook is a community not much larger than our own, so for some the tragedy resonated even louder. When tragedy like this occurs, it awakens our senses and drives us to take a look at how things are done. Some community leaders within Polk County have already begun to discuss the potential need for armed resource officers in our schools. What would this do to increase safety? What would the cost look like? If Polk County placed one resource officer in each of our six schools at an average salary of $40,000, the estimated cost would be $240,000 a year. While this is no small amount of change, it would require just about a penny increase in property taxes. These officers could also provide more than protection in a dire situation. The issue at hand after all is not just about a random stranger walking into one of our schools with a violent objective in mind. There are other scenarios - an estranged parent looking to pick up their child without the other parents’ knowledge or even a fight between multiple students - that could potentially cause harm. Resource officers could also offer a ramped up DARE program to encourage students to stay away from drugs, an authority figure to handle fights that break out or a trusted individual students could turn to if there was violence in their home. We also aren’t talking about putting rookies in the schools. The suggestion is for these officers to be seasoned professionals; men and women who have spent years on the force and are looking to get away from long shifts or late-night hours, but not retire. A resource officer in each school could go a long way to enhance youth’s trust in law enforcement and give parents and the community a bit of peace of mind. During the next county commission meeting Commissioner Ray Gasperson says he plans to bring up the potential of offering funding assistance to place resource officers in schools. We can’t think of money better spent. – Tryon Daily Bulletin editorial staff

Yours Columbus group homes To the editor: Deep concerns over group homes in single family residential neighborhoods should be a concern to the residents of a community. Discrimination does not enter into this concern, nor does fear. When neighbors have the same vested interest in their neighborhood it shows. When group homes are established in a single family residential neighborhood it brings extra traffic and individuals that are not vested in the Letter to the neighborhood. Group homes may Editor have six or more patients residing in a home. These patients normally have cars; there is usually a caretaker and/ or home nurse that helps out. The corporation that owns the home may have a company van. This makes possible ten vehicles for one single family residential house. These cars need to be parked on the street or the single family residential home has to make a parking lot. Speaking from experience, due to a family care/group home/ halfway house being in our quaint neighborhood, the parking needs of this family care home have had a negative impact. The beauty and the look of our neighborhood has changed, they have three times the cars of an average home, as I write this letter, the parking lot in front of this home is full of cars from property line

to property line with spill over on the street; at least six cars and if they have a meeting then more cars. This is a business, a non-profit corporation that is protected by law. Parking concerns have been addressed for over three years now with emails sent and pictures to the principals of this business showing the issue, to no avail. The management of this group home has not acknowledged parking or the extra traffic brought into the neighborhood as an issue, they do not live here, it is a business and it serves there business needs. Group homes do not have to ask about what might concern the neighbors because they are protected by law. My point is, you have valid concerns and if you have not approached this business, maybe they should approach you and work out your concerns beforehand. The first time I encountered a house advisor for this family care home and stated that this business never approached us as neighbors as to how we might feel and if we might have any concerns about them moving into our neighborhood. This person looked me straight in the eyes and said, “They do not have to ask.” So voice your concerns upfront, go to them and make your voices heard. Does anybody really want to be where they are not wanted? I know I don’t. - Jeffrey E. Bailey, Tryon

Christmas parade a delight

What money really gets you

To the editor I want to give a nod to Tryon Fire Department’s Chief Joey Davis, its officers and firefighters for a wonderful Christmas parade this past Wednesday. It was fun. I think starting the parade at sunset provides a touch of magic with all those lights being accented against the dark sky. It’s a nice tradition. Also, a big “job well done” to Mayor Peoples, the Tryon City Council, committee volunteers and the participating craftsman and artist for bringing Morris back to life. He looks great! My family and I moved here in December of 1982 and we have never experienced Morris “marching “in a parade. It was a joy to see. Merry Christmas! – Bob Wolfe, Tryon

To the editor If you’ve read or heard of Michael Sandel’s new book, “What Money Can’t Buy,” you’ll quickly realize that it should be titled What Can’t Money Buy? In sum, in today’s market oriented society, almost everything’s for sale. Everything. That marks a crucial difference from the recent past and underscores a growing inequality in American life. Yet what does money really buy you these days? What’s different

Letter to the Editor

Children’s art brings a smile I enjoy and appreciate the children’s art displayed on the

from 40 or 50 years ago? 1. Waiting in lines, the ultimate test of an egalitarian society. If you’ve seen all the pictures of folks camping out in front of a Target, Best Buy, or Bed and Bath store for seasonal bargains and discounts, they don’t include the rich. If you’ve traveled or flown lately, then you’ll understand that those in elite, premier or business class have an almost empty checkin line while you inch along in a rat-like labyrinth. Getting through security? First class passengers walk through while you wait and wait. Getting on board a plane without any hassle? Renting a car? Parking? Riding a train? Stuck in traffic?

No problem, just shell out a few bucks and leapfrog ahead of everyone else. In Paris, I watched the line to enter the Louvre museum stretch for three blocks outside in a cold rain while, for an additional fee of around $50, you could walk straight into the exhibits. A lobbyist in Washington pays a substitute to stand in line overnight to hold a place for him at a Congressional meeting. These days, you won’t socialize with the rich in waiting lines. 2. Privacy has a price and most can’t afford it. The poor tend to live almost on top of each other in crowded apartments, in trailer parks located on the fringes of towns and

front windows/doors of our local post office. When I look at it as I go to get my Letter mail, I’m cheered to the and smile to myself. Editor I t ’s a s m a l l b u t meaningful moment of pleasure.

My thanks to the children and their teacher(s) who do a wonderful job. Good design, great colors, uplifting reminder to notice the beauty around us. – Dorothy Kirk, Tryon

Letter to the Editor

Tryon Stroll success To the editor

The Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) appreciates everyone involved with the Tryon Christmas Stroll. The festive atmosphere with music, treats, Santa, decor, etc. allowed for a very pleasant eve-

• Money

(continued from page 9)

cities, and in run down inner city tenements. They have little privacy or respite from their neighbors, from each other, and from their trials and tribulations. Yet the rich can isolate themselves from all the messiness of everyday life. As the housing market rebounds, note the increasing number of gated communities, around 12 percent and growing, as the wealthy rush to separate themselves from everyone else.


ning with a lot of smiling faces “strolling” about the town. Paula Edwards, Kim Nelson, and Shelly Block did a great job coordinating the event, and TDDA would like to thank all the volunteers and performers, especially Bill Jones who filled in as a last minute Santa. We would like to show appreciation to the local merchants who decorated their businesses and participated, as well as the multitude of others who gave their

time and efforts to beautify Tryon and make this a great “kick-off to the holiday season.” But special recognition should be directed toward Erin Thompson, Mary Prioleau, town manager Caitlin Martin, and the Town of Tryon employees, who worked diligently to get the downtown decorations in working order (a result of apparent vandalism), as well as the Tryon Police and fire departments for spending their evening directing

traffic and keeping participants safe. We “tip our hats” to Caitlin for the job that she has done thus far, especially in a position that tends to lean to the “thankless” side. Seeing her riding around in the town truck along with her staff members shows her enthusiasm and initiative, and we feel the Town of Tryon is lucky to have her here. – Steve Cobb, TDDA president

Additionally, we’re fast approaching the time when private security guards outnumber a declining public police force. In a lot of small towns, police have disappeared altogether. Moreover, if you’re a Bernie Madoff and have to go to jail, you can even buy a prison-cell upgrade. 3. Education and health care. A good education now largely is for sale. Increasingly, public education slowly is being strangled, replaced by for-profit schools, by Christian and private academies. Regardless of yowls of protest from their supporters, that also means a con-

striction of opportunities for those who cannot afford class-conscious private schools. Health care? Many physicians and small regional hospitals like St. Luke’s now have been purchased by larger ones, and, from that, you’ll be “billed and tested up” despite entitlement write-offs. If you watch the evening news, you might also notice as did Sandel the energetic promotion of drugs to alleviate pseudo-illnesses like erectile dysfunction, at first blush the number one health issue in the nation. Yet despite the growing inequal-

ity, little protest will emerge. Why? First, those in the bottom 47 percent spend most of their time just trying to survive. Not even shoving the poor and middle classes over the fiscal cliff will matter. Class warfare? Nah. You have class warfare when peasants storm the castle, draw and quarter a robber baron or two, ravage the women, and rob the granaries but not when you recreationally occupy Wall Street. Still, the striking fast food workers in New York City just might storm Goldman Sachs ... – Milton Ready, Tryon

Upstairs holds smartphone photography workshop The Upstairs Artspace is offering a smartphone photography workshop on Saturday, Dec. 22, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. As with a similar class held in early December, anyone with an iPhone, iPad or camera-equipped Android phone or tablet is welcome to participate. The event aims to help everyone from novices to experienced art photographers explore the possibilities of smartphone digital photography. All participants are encouraged to bring images they would like to manipulate and, possibly, to submit their finished works to be displayed in “UPLOAD: The Art of the Digital Camera Phone,” the gallery’s opening exhibit of 2013. The deadline for submissions is Dec. 31; the show opens on

Jan. 18. Mixed-media artist Melissa Parrish Pittman, a member of the Upstairs board of directors, will lead the workshop. She will demonstrate how to take images shot with standard smartphone cameras and camera apps, such as Camera Plus, and transform them using some of the most popular editing apps, including Snapseed, Image Blender, ScratchCam and Juxtaposer. Participants are also encouraged to share tips with each other. “There’s really no right way of doing this,” said Melissa Parrish Pittman. “That’s the beauty of smartphone photography. It puts the photographer’s tools -- from different lenses and film to the darkroom and computer (Continued on page 15)

Fourth annual Polk County High Reindeer Games today This year at Polk County High School the indoor track and field team is again supporting the area to help people in financial crisis. Team members plan to host the fourth-annual Reindeer Games Indoor Track and Field Meet at 4 p.m. today, Dec. 19. Times, heights and distances will count for state qualifying, however some added events are not ones typically held at indoor meets. The event will include a 4x200 race, the throwers 4x100, a long jump and shot put relays. Others may also be invented to add to the festive spirit of the meet. The purpose of the Reindeer Games is to help provide food for the needy over the holiday season. High school track members will pay an entry fee of one can of food per athlete. The food collected will then be donated to Thermal Belt Outreach

Ministry. At last year’s Reindeer Games, PCHS collected 1,300 cans for distribution to those needing assistance. This year the school that contributes the most cans will be recognized with an award. Reindeer Games not only honor the spirit of giving related to the holiday season, but also the spirit of fun. Track members, and fans, are encouraged to wear something spirited to the games. Uniform requirements for the participants will be somewhat relaxed, so this means many will don reindeer antlers, Santa hats and even elf ears. Participants are only asked to not wear anything that could cause injury or interference with other competitors. – article submitted by Alan Peoples
