there is a fact all of us must eventually face and none can ever escape. We will all die one day. no matter what kind of euphemism we attach to that event – crossing over, passing away, going to be with the Lord – whatever seems less painful and acceptably polite, in the end all of our bodies will ultimately cease to function and we will all die. depending on one’s faith tradition and system of belief the essence of what is truly “us,” our soul or spirit, continues on in one manner or another. anecdotal accounts of “near death experiences” are many and scientific evidence of one sort or another (depending on who you choose to believe) attest to the fact that beyond religious faith there is evidence of life after death. in some religious traditions our spirits are thought to be recycled through reincarnation to ever higher, or lower, levels of spiri-

tual consciousness. in others, that which is essentially us simply melds back in the cosmic consciousness of the one. islam and Judaism share a common belief in an afterlife with Christianity with differing interpretations, but even in the Christian religion our many diverse views on what happens when our body ceases to function and our spirits go to God are often at radical odds with one another. all those things are issues of faith which one must address within one’s own tradition. nonetheless, we will all die. however this column is not about what happens after we die, but how we choose to plan for what is inevitable. there are things we can do while we are well, in our right minds and physically able to be proactive in providing clear guidance to our friends and loved ones about our wishes should we become ill (continued on page 9)

Miller receives soccer scholarship from St. Andrews University by Samantha Hurst

Polk County High School senior Emily Miller signed a letter of intent Wednesday, Feb. 6 to play soccer for St. Andrews University in Laurinburg, N.C. Emily said she chose St. Andrews because of its academics, while playing soccer there has come as an added bonus. “They have a program there focusing on biology and equine sciences, which is what I’m hoping to study,” Emily said. “But I never thought I’d have the opportunity to play soccer in college, so getting to do that too is exciting.” Emily’s family said they are delighted to see her get the chance to be involved in college athletics as well. “She really had to battle last

“Her skills on the ball constantly improve – her dribbling and shooting – which will allow her to rely more on speed at the college level,” he said. Athletic director Jeff Wilson said St. Andrews must really have seen something special in Emily when she practiced with the team. “It’s the second biggest scholarship I’ve seen a female athlete from Polk County receive in my time here,” Wilson said. He said as far as he remembers only softball player Jamie Hrobak has received a larger scholarship package. Miller’s parents said they are proud that she has also received an academic scholarship from the university to help with college expenses.

Second Sunday of each month begins Feb. 10 Join the Congregational Church of Tryon for a new evening worship service beginning Feb.10 in the church’s fellowship hall at 210 Melrose Ave. We are planning an informal worship service to recharge, replenish and reconnect people for the up-coming week. Second Sunday is patterned after how the early church might have worshipped. Those who attend will gather to hear the word

of God, sing some new as well as old songs, celebrate our life in the body of Christ with the Lord’s Supper and then share a covered dish meal together. All are welcome. This worship opportunity is offered on the Second Sunday of each month. Second Sunday is designed to be an experiential service; expect people of all ages, and a very informal atmosphere. The first service

will have the theme of creation. Organizers are asking for any art work/photography/textiles that express this theme to be part of the ambience of the service. Contact Lance Smith or Bob Barrows if you have something to share. For more information, call 859-9414 or email uccceyouth@windstream.net. – article submitted by Lance Smith

Letter to the Editor

Wool being pulled over our eyes To the editor: I was quoted at the commissioners’ meeting as saying that there is no reason to rush, and I would like to clarify my position. I meant that there is no reason to rush this legislation through, because it affects our community in many ways and needs more discussion.

Letter to the Editor

Ambush governing keeps residents unaware

To the editor: In the Dec. 28 issue of the Bulletin, Renée McDermott exposed a woeful new method of governing by our county commissioners in her letter to the editor, “Cutting off the sunshine.” Here’s a quote from that letter: “During their very first meeting, commissioners Gage, Owens, Pack and Holbert changed

I did not mean there is no rush on the issue of trapping. Unfortunately, the bill seems to have been put on the “fast track.” The commissioners voted on this issue without the input of the community, save for three people who are pro-trapping, and it looks as if the state representatives are rushing this as well. Why is that? It is far more difficult to rescind legislation that it is to put a hold on it so than it can be thoroughly explored. Why are they in such a grand hurry? That makes me wonder who will benefit from this

legislation. It certainly won’t be the animals. Concerned citizens, please let our state representative Chris Whitmire and our state Senator Ralph Hise know how you feel about the issue of trapping, and ask why this bill is on the fast track. It seems that someone is trying to pull the wool over our eyes, and I, for one, would like to know why. chris.whitmire@ncleg.net 919715-4466 and ralph.hise@ncleg. net, 919-733-3460. – Emmy Summers, Tryon

the Commissioners’ Rules of Procedure to make it harder, sometimes impossible, for the public and the lone minority commissioner to have notice of what will be considered at commissioners meetings. These devastating changes were not highlighted or listed in any way. The document had a 2011 date on it, making it look like no changes were made.” Now, we’re starting to see the results of this kind of ambush governing, and it’s very disturbing. The commissioners recently voted to make animal trapping legal in Polk County after hearing from three people in favor

of the change and none opposed to it. That’s because no one who is opposed to it was informed that the issue was on the agenda. We learned about the ambush after the fact, which prompted many objections from the public, including a petition that has garnered 12,000 signatures in one week. What other decisions are being made without a fair and open discussion? How many signatures will it take before the commissioners listen to those they claim to represent? -Susan McNabb, Tryon
