collected yet. Tryon Public Works Director Joel Burrell said on Dec. 18 that his crew had worked 13 days since Nov. 13 and half the town had been completed, or 10 miles of roads. He said the crew has worked eight hours per day on leaves with Tryon staff saying it takes five employees to run the new machine, purchased this fiscal year. Miller said the leaves are on the street and they are going to cause a safety issue. On Markham Street, he said there are leaves piled 7 feet. high and it’s become an eyesore. “We’re not talking about an astronomical amount of money,” Miller said. “I think the leaves and cleaning up our town we just have to do it.” Miller also mentioned how leaf pick up has always been an issue in Tryon with residents like Howard Greene coming

to meetings and talking about leaves for years. “My leaves haven’t been picked up yet,” Miller said. “I like for my yard to look good and for people not to have to drive in the middle of the street.” Tryon Mayor Alan Peoples disagreed and said there are too many other things the town needs to spend money on. “Your street isn’t a main road, Alan,” Miller responded. “Your street is a dead end. On Markham, there’s kids on that street.” Miller said there are leaves piled on both sides of Markham, which is narrow to begin with and the kids are walking in the street. “We need to get the leaves up,” Miller added. Council approved giving town manager Caitlin Martin $2,000 to get the leaf pick-up complete but also briefly discussed if the town should contract out the service next year as it has done in the past.

drinks, popcorn and candy will increase from $2 each to $2.50 and from $3 for large food items to $3.75. Beer and wine prices will stay the same, he said. Flood said he has no choice on increasing the prices due to the costs of food and beverages increasing so much over the past several years. The price of popcorn, for example, has increased 75 percent since 2005, he said. Located at 45 South Trade Street the Tryon Theatre is open Wednesday through Sat-

The award is named in honor of Paul Harris who, along with three business associates, started Rotary International in Chicago in 1905.

UUF speaks on ‘Reflections on maturity, aging and soul-work,’ Jan. 13 The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176N at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 13. Reverend Jean Rowe will speak on the topic, “Reflections on maturity, aging and soul-work.” Richard Rohr, in Falling Upward, says he hopes and believes that “a kind of second simplicity is

the very goal of mature adulthood and mature religion.” He also calls it a “second naivete.” Maybe that is what is meant by the biblical phrase “the scales fell from his eyes” — a reference to the conversion of Saul/Paul being able to see with new eyes. I think that maturity means losing the illusions, defenses, pretenses,

projections and external belief systems we accumulated during the first half of life. T. S. Eliot put it this way: “We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” Well, that is also known as soul-

work: uncovering your deepest, truest Self, the Really, Really Me. Fell free to come early to participate in setting up the service as well as to join in fellowship and refreshments. For information call 828-894-5776 or visit uutryonnc. org. - article submitted by Dan Dworkin

This is the holiday season. Christmas is over. The “New Year” is right around the corner. In college football the regular season is over, and the bowl season has already begun. Tax season begins sooner than any of us would like. Some seasons in life are more difficult than others. The tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut has forever changed the season for all involved. This year hurricane season is over, but will be remembered for decades because of the tragedy of Sandy. In the world the painful after effects of the Arab Spring con-

tinue, and daily the news bombards us with reports of disease and suffering. Winter has arrived and the flu season is already upon us. Recently I was talking with one of our members recovering from an illness. He likened his long process of recovery to a sports season, with its routine of practices, and games, and days where he felt like a winner, and other days where he felt more like a loser. Every family and every relationship also goes through its seasons, times of incredible pride and joy, and times when life seems (continued on page 9)

WEST --2[ 3NT

J54 QJ1098 A K1082







You are sitting South and after opening the bidding with 1 Heart, the opponents just disregard your bid and march into 3NT. Obviously you lead the Queen of Hearts, with partner following suit with a discouraging deuce and declarer winning with Ace. Declarer then leads a Diamond and you have to win with your singleton Ace. Now what do you do? If you continue with leading another Heart to knock out the King you have just labled yourself as a “card pusher,” i.e. a non-thinking player, and given the opponents a free path to making their contract. As a declarer you have been taught to count your winners and losers. Has anyone every told you, as defender, to count the opposing sides potential winners and losers? If the answer is no then you need to find a better teacher or mentor. As a defender you should review what has taken place after each trick has been played.

Jim Wiprut, H.I.S.

Let’s review what we know in this hand. After trick one, based on partner’s play of the deuce, you know declarer holds both the Ace and King of Hearts. And after seeing dummy’s Diamond holding and having your Ace dislodged you can count declarer taking 5 Diamonds, 2 Hearts and at least 2 Spade winners for a total of nine tricks. So you should ask yourself, what’s to be gained by continuing Hearts? The answer should be self-explanatory; nothing! So what should you do? Look elsewhere for a possible killing defensive solution and that usually lies in the remaining suit to be played, Clubs. So after winning with the Diamond Ace , if South switches to the deuce of Clubs, based on the lie of the cards, the defense is able to get 4 Clubs to defeat the contract. Bridge can be so rewarding, if you just take the time to think instead of playing like a “card pusher?”
