by Leah Justice

The Town of Tryon is considering amending its town code to regulate pickets, demonstrations, parades and protests with careful drafting to ensure the language does not restrict anyone’s First

Amendment right to free speech. Council met March 19 and reviewed a draft ordinance to be included in the town’s code that would require a notification be submitted and restrictions regarding how close a picket, protest,

demonstration or parade could be in front of open businesses. The original draft said that a notification has to be obtained from the town if 10 or more per-

sons want to demonstrate. Commissioners came to a consensus that they want a notification if one or more persons is going to demonstrate, picket, protest or parade in town. The issue of the need for picketing regulations surfaced following an Oct. 21, 2012 demonstration downtown where more than 50 members of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church gathered along the sidewalks holding signs against abortion. Commissioners met the next month and asked if there is anyway to regulate future protests with some saying there was an issue with the demonstration blocking businesses. The town’s current draft amendment to the code says picketing may be conducted on public sidewalks, town-controlled parks or other town-owned areas normally used or reserved for (Continued on page 4)

pedestrian movement, including easements, but should not be conducted on roadways used for vehicular traffic or at a location directed, focused or targeted at a particular private residence. Regarding businesses, the current drafts states that picketing shall not disrupt, block, obstruct or interfere with pedestrian or vehicular traffic or the free passage of pedestrian or vehicular traffic into any driveway, pedestrian entrance or other access to buildings which abut the public sidewalk. Commissioners discussed the distance picketers can be from the entrance to any open business with the current draft saying picketers shall not station themselves within 10 feet of an open business. Some commissioners were more in favor of restricting that distance to 20 feet from an entrance. Commissioner Roy Miller said he’s pro-business and hears what others are saying about restricting protests in front of businesses, but he doesn’t want to violate anyone’s constitutional right. He said he’d like a little more time before restricting to 20 feet in front of businesses.

tions here and “I’d hate to willingly go into something that may be unlawful.” The draft also includes restrictions to placards, signs, flags or banners that might be carried by individuals during a picket. “Written or printed placards or signs, flags or banners carried by individuals engaged in picketing shall be of such a size and/or carried on the sidewalks or other town-owned areas as to allow safe and unobstructed passage of pedestrian or vehicular traffic,” states the draft restriction. “The staff or pole on which a sign, flag or banner may be carried shall be made of corrugated material, plastic or wood and shall not exceed 40 inches in length and shall not be made of metal or metal alloy. If made of wood, the staff or pole shall be no greater than ¾ inch in diameter at any point. A staff or pole must be blunt at both ends.” Although a public hearing is not required for this particular ordinance amendment, Tryon commissioners decided a public hearing will be held. Town attorney Bailey Nager suggested that the town hold a public hearing in April and adopt something in May.

Yours Liberals

Water woes flood Tryon government If you were left sputtering from the confusion that is Tryon’s disconnection policy for water service, don’t fret; we were left scratching our heads as well. In this tough economic climate many people might be in the position of having to push this month’s bill a few days so they can buy groceries this week. It’s a reality we understand many face. No one suggests the town become water tyrants – running to meters and shutting them down the day after someone misses a bill – but certainly Tryon officials must do something to straighten out the town’s water woes. The situation goes far beyond changing grace periods though. We’re talking about $50,000 in water debt for a town of about 1,600; this amounts to some pretty hefty late bills. Consider too that part of what Tryon is swimming in includes $29,000 from inactive accounts that might not ever be rectified. Councilman Wim Woody is right that the problem of people not paying their bills only gets worse if nothing is done. It potentially even causes additional water log for current customers. If the town is constantly owed money to its water system the deficit left in revenue must be covered somehow. What does this mean? In this fiscal budget year, Tryon raised water rates by one percent. That increase equated to 15 cents more per year for customers inside town limits and as much as 32 cents for those outside town limits. This was expected to bring in an additional $15,000 and that was to cover the budget already, not to make up for debt owed. We haven’t even broached the subjects of work that still must be completed on the town’s water plant, customer complaints over rates being too high or responsibility for Lake Lanier. Tryon is starting to feel a bit soggy. Let’s hope the individual chosen to take on the town manager position permanently is prepared to tackle this flood. – Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

To the editor: In response to Charles Weinhagen, Saluda - “Whine, Whine, Whine” (March 13), I had to chuckle at your response to those that “whine” about having to live by the rules. Don’t you understand that these elite Letter liberals think the rules to the don’t apply to them? Editor They honestly think that they are somehow “special” and therefore they are above the rules that apply to the rest of us?

The $600,000 light bulb

To the editor: There is a special taxing district in Greenville County, S.C. This district consists of properties contiguous to, and in close proximity to, the Town of Tryon Water Reservoir, (aka Lake Lanier). The tax in this district is levied and collected by Greenville County. These tax dollars are paid to the Town of Tryon, N.C. for services. Payments are made to Tryon quarterly and the annual payment for the year ending June 30, 2013 will be $32,600. This tax district was established June 18, 1991.

Apparently those that purchase a Prius can now just do a “rolling stop” in order to save the cost of their own fuel; never mind that “rolling stops” have been against the law for as long as I know. Perhaps the Prius owners that also have a co-exist bumper sticker on their car should be able to disregard paying their taxes too. Oh yeah, many in this administration’s cabinet already do that. – Cyndi Breedlove, Mill Spring

Without benefit of a formal audit, it can be assumed this taxing exercise has generated in the neighborhood of $600,000. The only visible or tangible result of this investment is a light bulb and a fixture. This light was mounted by the town on a wooden platform on the lake proper. Folks, come by the town reservoir at night and see this magnificent beacon to citizen indifference, government negligence and the needy, worthless, “takers” that we were warned of in the presidential election campaign of 2012. - Michael Verbonic, Landrum

Lattimore receives Order of the Long Leaf Pine Robin S. Lattimore, former associate editor of The Tryon Daily Bulletin, was presented the Order of the Long Leaf Pine on behalf of North Carolina Governor Patrick L. McCrory on Sunday, March 24.

One moonshiner trained steers to help in his operation One of the less widely known tales of the Dark Corner is the one about an unnamed, yet enterprising, moonshiner in the old Terry Creek section (think Cliffs Valley golf course community on the east side of U.S. 25 going north toward Asheville), who trained a couple of steers to assist him in moonshine making. The distillery was located in a cave behind a waterfall on the backside of his property as it rose up the hilly slope toward Panther Mountain. Very few people knew about

When moonshine was ready, filled 10-gallon kegs would be strapped to each side of the steers’ backs for delivery to the barn.

Your health and dementia in relation to alcohol We all know the quality of our lives, particularly as we get older, depends a great deal upon our health. We’ve heard for years now that red wine is good for our health, and frankly, alcohol in any form when consumed in moderation appears to have a protective effect upon our bodies. We’ve also heard that alcohol has an effect on memory, but the effect depends on the amount consumed. Heavy alcohol consumption takes a toll on memory function. But how much is too much? The latest research coming out of prestigious universities, like John’s Hopkins, and studies published studies in both the Journal of the American Medical Association and Epidemiology, are reporting both the positive and negative effects of varying levels of alcohol consumption.

Let’s talk about binge drink- risk of dementia in people who ing for a moment. The study never drank it all.

good idea to talk to your doctors about drinking alcohol if you fall into that category. So it appears that while not fully understood, moderate drinking has a protective effect believed to be due to the improved blood flow it causes to the brain and that may help prevent small “silent” strokes. Again, by contrast, consuming 14 or more drinks per week has been associated with an increased risk of dementia. Oh, and one more thing the research indicated is that being a nonsmoker seems to further enhance the protective aspects of alcohol, and lowered the risk of developing dementia. Research is still emerging on how the type of alcohol – beer, wine or liquor – affects dementia risk, but the fact that to date, consumption of alcohol (Continued on page 19)

Twenty-five high school students from Polk and Spartanburg Counties attended Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado performed by the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players at Bob Jones University through the Wheaton Fund at Tryon Fine Arts Center. North Carolina students pictured above were joined in Greenville by a group of drama and chorus students from Landrum High School. The students had dinner together at a Japanese restaurant in Greenville before the comic opera began. The opera program, being revived as part of Arts in Education at Tryon Fine Arts Center, was begun 30 years ago by Jack and Margaret Wheaton to help provide young people with cultural opportunities normally associated with larger cities. For more information, call 828-859-8322 ext. 213. (photo submitted by Marianne Carruth)
