U.S. 74/ I-26 accident injures mom and child

Depot recognized at state level

Mom charged with DWI, child abuse, reckless driving by Leah Justice

A one-vehicle wreck along U.S. 74 just before I-26 Tuesday, Feb. 26 seriously injured a mother and her 2-year old son, according to the N.C. Highway Patrol. N.C. State Trooper Grady McGraw said Jessica Rhodes, of Arden, was driving a Honda passenger vehicle westbound along U.S. 74 in Columbus around 7:30 p.m. when she ran off the road to the left and struck a tree. Rhodes was charged with driving while impaired, misdemeanor child abuse, child unrestrained and reckless driving, according to McGraw. McGraw said Rhodes’2-year old son was in a childrestraining seat in the back of the car, but he was not buckled. Emergency crews had to cut Rhodes out of the vehicle because she was entrapped, McGraw said. The 2-year old was not entrapped. Although a helicopter was called, it was unable to arrive because of foggy conditions. Both were transported to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center by ambulance with significant injuries, according to McGraw.

Andy Millard accepts a proclamation from Tryon Mayor Alan Peoples for his work to renovate the Tryon depot. The proclamation was made in recognition of the depot project being awarded the 2012 North Carolina Small Town Main Street Award of Merit for Economic Restructuring by the North Carolina Department of Commerce on Feb. 1.

The series, which premiered on TLC in 2009, plans to film in Tryon during the Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival as it celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Festival chairman Chuck Britton said he’s excited to add another layer to the celebration of this monumental year for the North Carolina state barbecue competition. “What a fitting way to add to the fun and excitement of this special birthday year,” he said. Last year the festival saw record numbers with Britton reporting early numbers of 12,198 paid gate admissions and entrance of 2,898 kids on both days. A total of 3,688 adults got in without charge during free admission hours Friday morning last year. The festival each year includes a professional barbecue competition, an arts and crafts section, car show and amusement rides and games for kids.

the state. David Searcy, who said he’s been a Columbus business owner for about 30 years, said Columbus officers are everywhere, saying they are seen at the top of the Saluda grade and out of state. He said Columbus officers “seem to be everywhere.” “As a business owner I don’t like it,” David Searcy said. “I’m ready to close up shop and leave town. They are stopping people when they don’t need to be.” David Searcy continued to say officers don’t give warnings and once someone is in court they don’t have a chance because it’s all about money. “I don’t feel like I’m proud to be in Columbus anymore,” said David Searcy. Columbus Police Chief Chris Beddingfield addressed the concerns and said, “it’s not popular when you enforce the law.” He told council and the pub-

And the most successful way to catch criminals is through traffic enforcement. Brenda Searcy said she was stopped pulling out of U.S. 74 and an officer tore out from the BP, came flying up the road and said he clocked her doing 56 mph in a 45 mph zone. “I know that I was not,” she said. “I had just pulled out.” She said she was not speeding and she’s never had a speeding ticket in North Carolina until then. She said she was found guilty in court and it cost her more than $200 for something she said she was not guilty of. “It made sense when I read in the Bulletin today because they

get so many points,” Brenda Searcy said. “Do you know how many people’s businesses have fell off since they’ve been doing this the past six months?” She added that it’s “our” tax money that pays for part of the officers’ salaries. “I don’t mind helping the town but I’m not going to be harassed,” she said. Columbus Mayor Eric McIntyre said there is always one police officer on duty within city limits. He also told the Searcys council would take what they said and see where the town can improve if it needs to improve. Beddingfield said the department does not get points for writing tickets, only for participating in joint operational check points and classes for BikeSafe. Columbus participates in the N.C. Governor’s Highway Safety Program and receives points for participation, which equates dollar for dollar in free equipment for the department. Columbus was recently honored for being the top point-getter in the state for 2012. Beddingfield also said his department gets more complaints that officers are not doing enough speed enforcement in town than that they do too much. The speed limit along Mills Street was lowered from 35 mph to 25 mph due to citizen complaints over speeding. Beddingfield also said he knows of no businesses that have closed due to their presence in town. “I’d hope people would feel safer coming to town due to there being less chance of getting hit by a drunk driver or speeder,” said Beddingfield. “We’re not out to harass people or to treat people unfairly, but to keep people safe.”

LaurelHurst residents recognizes Black History Month with celebration Laurel Hurst residents recognized Black History Month with a celebration of music, food and trivia. The music was provided by sisters Alberta Lee and LaurelHurst employee Dianne Brown. The ladies sang “We Shall Overcome,” “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “Lift Every Voice and Sing” and “My Country Tis of Thee.” Selected portions were read from Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Later residents enjoyed pinto beans and cornbread while answering trivia questions about black history. One resident said he was disappointed only because the music didn’t last longer. – article submitted by Jennifer Thompson Left: Alberta Lee and Dianne Brown.

MISSING DOG

3 year old Chihuahua(mix?) weighing approxi mately 8 lbs. Angel's coat is brownish-red in color with a white chest and paws. She was named for her "Angel-like" beautiful brown eyes and for her sweet disposition. She loves to twirl... Angel disappeared from her home at 955 Red Fox Road in Columbus on Tuesday afternoon around 2:30pm. Angel is an inside dog and part of the family, which is why she wasn't wearing a collar. Angel has been such a blessing to me. I feel like a part of my heart is missing. Please help me to find my Angel, and bring her home. My name is Lisa and I've lost my Angel!

Identifying Trees in the winter draws crowd at Walnut Creek Preserve On Saturday, Feb. 16, the Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) and Walnut Creek Preserve (WCP) cosponsored “Identifying Trees in the Winter,” a free program presented by Shannon Buckley at the Anne Elizabeth Suratt Nature Center. Almost 40 people attended the free program, where Shannon Buckley treated guests to his knowledge of winter tree identification. Buckley started the presentation with an introduction of how to identify trees when they have no leaves. Using projected images, he taught the group how to recognize different, unique characteristics of trees, such as features of the twigs, buds, leaf scars, bark and fruit. Then, a majority of the group joined Buckley, PAC’s Pam Torlina and Shannon Buckley teaches “Identifying Trees in the Winter,” in the snow, at Walnut Creek Preserve on Saturday, WCP’s Babs Strickland for a walk Feb. 16.

And bed fishfortunate enough, ing, especially for Life released miles away largemouth bass is a very popular method Outside from their nest. And for many of the bigto catching fish. Bed fishing in- Four Walls ger ones, it’s a trip to the taxidermist. volves moving by Rob Studies show an around the shore McComas average largemouth looking for fish beds, will lay several thouusually a round or semi round “white spot” on the sand eggs, with an average of bottom in shallow coves and less than 10 making it to maturipockets.

how difficult that would be for a fish after giving birth several thousand times, then getting wrestled into a boat, kept out of the water, then released. And that’s the best scenario. Just because a fish swims away, it doesn’t mean they are ok. Surely I at least have the lady anglers support on this. Spring fishing can be some of the best fishing all year. There is nothing wrong with fishing during the spawn, just do the ethical thing and leave the bed fish alone. You will no doubt catch some bed fish inadvertently, so be sure to release all fish quickly and in the exact spot you caught them. By doing the right thing, you are investing in the future of fishing for you, and our kids. Do your part to help insure the “brood of our future” make it to just that, the future. Closing note, I have no bed fishing pictures to post with this column, I hope you understand.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Foothills Miniature Horse Club (FMHC) Fun Day, 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. this coming Saturday, March 2 at Connie and Jeff Brown’s Green Creek Miniature Horse Farm (just down Rte. 9 from The Green Creek Fire Department.) An “unofficial” fun day, (officially “snowed out” Feb. 16) did happen for any who dared the elements, including Carolina Carriage Club’s (CCC) President, Price Story, and Halley, the 16-year-old Swedish Gotland mare, who recently came to live at Storybook Farm in Mills River, N.C. They came to practice for their first competition together: the 2013 Salute to Driving in Aiken, S.C. March 1-3. Connie Brown said she felt sorry for Jeff Brown roasting hot dogs with only his truck for company when he started cooking on “Snow Day.” “Quite a few came to check out the facility (without horses) in spite of the snow,” she said. “They’re coming and bringing friends with horses and not just the miniature horses. “In addition to in-hand obstacles that include jumps, as well as the driving events, we’ll have a silent auction, lots of information about CCC, FMHC and other activities, including the Paul Nordan’s CCC
