BJ Bayne’s daughter, Heather Cash has Cushing’s disease and faces surgery to remove a second brain tumor next month. “I watched my daughter almost die in front of me,” Bayne said. “When she bled out 10 days after surgery… I mean, you hit your knees and tell God take me not her.” Cash, a 21-year-old student at USC Upstate, was diagnosed a year and a half ago with Cushing’s disease and underwent

Saluda meets with property owners to beautify Ozone Dr. by Leah Justice

The City of Saluda is currently looking to beautify Ozone Drive with a struggle between some who want to rework regulations and others who say more regulations could push out mom and pop stores and destroy the city’s

uniqueness. The Saluda Planning Board and city council members held a meeting Tuesday, April 9 and invited the approximate 40 property owners along Ozone Drive to discuss what the community wants for its entrance into town.

• Ozone Dr. (continued from page 1)

Planning board chair Henry Bright said when he was first appointed to the planning board commissioners had been talking about doing an overlay district on Ozone Drive. He said at the time he didn’t even know what an overlay district was. “The current planning board that serves you has decided it is not a good idea for us to create a plan for Ozone without hearing from the property owners and listening to you,” Bright told the audience. Bright said the planning board wants to hear exactly what the property owners think, including their visions, ideas and solutions or whether they think no changes are needed at all. Adams presented the audience with before and after pictures of other communities she’s worked with that improved entrances into towns.

Saluda planning board members, city council members and business owners met Tuesday, April 9 to discuss what might could be done to improve Ozone Dr., one of the gateways into the city. (photo by Leah Justice)

Adams said this was not a meeting to tell anybody what they can or cannot do with their property. “Hopefully it can open up some positive dialogue about the community,” Adams said. Some of the consensus was

that Ozone Drive needs sidewalks. The group discussed whether or not they wanted chain restaurants and discussed sign regulations. Some ideas were discussed about working with the department of transportation for projects like sidewalks on Ozone, obtaining grants for businesses to improve their properties and generally working together to clean up the district. Wally Pace said part of the problem was that the city expects Ozone Drive property owners to beautify their land to benefit downtown with no benefits extended to them, specifically sidewalks. Lee Atkins said the real beauty of Saluda is the sense of freedom, lack of regulations and heart of the town. Atkins warned against trying to accomplish what they want through regulations. He talked about the economic downturn and mentioned towns like Tryon, Columbus, Spindale and Fletcher with empty storefronts. “Look at how Saluda has thrived,” Atkins said. Pace said the businessmen and women are always the heart of the town. He said businesses need signs to direct people into town and there are people living in Saluda who don’t want excessive regulation. Pace spoke of a green container he once had in front of

his business and heard through the grapevine that people didn’t like it so he moved it. He said a woman blessed out the late AG Hipp, the owner of Hipp’s garage who is now deceased, then asked him to move. He said people need to make AG’s heirs feel a part of the town and part of the community. “You’ll get a lot more done by volunteerism than all these regulations that people think of,” Pace said. “Cooperation will do a lot more than loss of freedom.” Sharon Hipp, AG Hipp’s widow, said she was unhappy that Saluda residents and officials were not the only ones at the meeting. “I feel misled,” Hipp said. “I thought it was Ozone Drive owners talking to council and the planning board.” She said Ozone Drive has been zoned, annexed and been through meeting after meeting after moratorium after zoning. She also spoke of a bus tour taken recently by the planning board. The tour seemed to have caused many in Saluda to express concern over the possibility of more regulations coming to Ozone. “How much have we talked about zoning?” Hipp asked. “How much have we spent on zoning?” It’s like Leon Morgan’s store, she said. She said she loves the (Continued on page 6)

front of his store. It’s unique, he has planters and it’s different, Hipp said. “We’re not all the same,” Hipp said. “We don’t have the same mats in front of our doors. Saluda is unique.” Shelley DeKay spoke about the planning board’s advisory committee’s work done a few years ago where property owners and other residents came to an agreement. “We met and talked a lot,” DeKay said. “I think one of the wonderful things that came out of that was we all generally understood one another.” Saluda commissioner Johnnie Kinard said he was there representing the masonic lodge. He said the lodge is interested in making the town attractive but is not interested in destroying the soul of Saluda in the process. Adams said sometimes the best enhancement is cleaning up. She said there’s grants available to plant trees and the city may come to a consensus to hire someone to draw a rendering of what the district could look like if signs were lowered a bit. City administrator Erny Williams spoke of one sign that may be lovely, but it’s not in compliance. Bill Wilkerson said the city doesn’t need to regulate each individual. That’s where sidewalks and biking trails will make other things happen, he said. He encouraged the city to not just agree

on it but to get it done. Wilkerson said he was in Columbus last week and asked the town manager how they put in sidewalks and curbing. “They hadn’t paid a penny,” Wilkerson said. “The state has done this.” Jane Powell said that regulations were not so much the issue but the consideration of property owners tidying up their properties to beautify the corridor, which would have a positive effect. Elena Robson suggested the city create a plan for sidewalks and trees to work towards, which would naturally regulate signage and other buffer issues. Colt Love agreed that volunteer meetings with property owners and communication with the planning board and council would help eliminate rumor and hard feelings. Pace asked for others not to talk behind a businesses’ back, but to “man up and come tell us,” he said. “We can talk about it. Just come talk to us.” Adams said the consensus was that Saluda really wants to do some landscape enhancements and suggested that Saluda start a conversation with the department of transportation.

Saluda’s McCreery Park wall gets facelift Work began this week replacing a deteriorated wall at McCreer y Park in Saluda following city council’s April 8 meeting where commissioner s approved taking approximately $5,000 out of fund balance to replace the former cross ties with a concrete wall. Estimates were for the concrete to cost approximately $5,000 for a more long-ter m solution then cross ties, which would have cost approximately $1,700. Repairs have also been done to the steps at the park recently. (photo by Leah Justice)

Mountain View’s full menu as well as take-out orders will be available. On May 4 at the Party Place and Event Center in Saluda, rising country music artist Maggie Rose will perform a benefit concert to help raise money for Cash. Rose is ascending the country charts with her hit single “I Ain’t Your Mama” off her debut album “Cut to Impress.” Doors for the concert open at 3 p.m. with local band performances taking the stage. Maggie Rose performs at 7 p.m. Officers said Bayne would never ask for help, so they secretly started planning the benefits. “Well there’s so many people I feel like may need help more than Heather does and I didn’t want to take away from them,” Bayne said. Columbus native Owens, who is a star on the Discovery Channel’s show “Moonshiners” has done a promotion for the benefits and said he is so thankful he is in a position to help someone in his community. “For the first time in my life I’m on the right side of the law,” Owens said. Owens’ co-star Canny said it’s kind of rare when moonshiners and lawmen will come together on a cause. Bayne said to pay for the last surgery she used her 401K and is still making payments on the medical bills. To pay for this

Heather also told Shelby when she expressed doubt that the concert would really come together that Shelby just needed to pray to God that everything would work out. “It really truly proves how much this community can care for a family,” Shelby Cash said. Sheriff Donald Hill said when he heard about the costs and hardship the family was going to face, it only felt right to step up and do something. Det. Randall Hodge said the (Continued on page 9)

Ninth annual PACWalk and third annual PACRun, May 4 The Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) will hold its ninth annual PACWalk for Conservation on Saturday, May 4, at Tryon Estates in Columbus. Since May 2005, the PACWalk has become a springtime tradition for many who enjoy spending a couple of hours outdoors with friends and family in support of conservation. PACWalk can be enjoyed by folks of all ages. To date, the oldest participant was 100 years old and the youngest was just a few months old, spanning a century. Walkers can choose the paved path around the lake, a distance of ¾ mile. This option is called the Sam White Stroll, named for a founder of the Pacolet Area Conservancy and former resident of Tryon Estates. Another choice is a lovely, 2-mile trail along the lake and through the woods. If neither of those appeals, one can choose the

Phantom Walk and be part of the event from anywhere. Check-in for PACWalk is from 9-9:45 a.m., followed by the walk of your choice at 10 a.m. Also on May 4, the Pacolet Area Conservancy will present its third-annual PACRun, a 5K trail run. In its first year, runners enjoyed the race because of the beautiful trails through the woods, carefully chosen and marked. The race is timed and medals are awarded for winners in each category. Check-in begins at 7:15 a.m. for PACRun, and the race starts at 8 a.m. Following the walk, at approximately 11:30 a.m., walkers and runners are invited to lunch and an awards ceremony in the Tryon Estates dining room. Runners may register online at, or runners and walkers can visit the PAC website,, to download registration forms

for either the race or the walk. Forms are also available at the PAC office, at 850 N. Trade St. in Tryon. For more information please call the PAC office at 8595060, visit the website, or come by the office. After May 3, there will be a $5 late registration fee for PAC-

Rev. Gary Lockee retires

• Diet & Exercise

On Sunday, March 24 Midway Baptist Church of Columbus held a surprise celebration and luncheon for Rev. and Mrs. Gary Lockee. Several family members and longtime friends of his ministry joined in to help the congregation surprise him and honor him for his faithful service at Midway Baptist. Rev. Lockee retired March 31 from his pastoral post after coming out of retirement 10 years ago to serve as full-time pastor at Midway Baptist Church. He has served as a pastoral minister for 50-plus years in six churches and has preached at more than 200 revivals over the span of his ministry. He graduated from Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute of Hendersonville, and the Luther Rice Seminary of Jacksonville, Fla. Rev. Lockee and his loving wife, Evelyn, have been married 55 years and reside in Campobel-

raspberries, pecans, walnuts, cranberries, grapes, pomegranates, and strawberries, among other foods. Research shows ellagic acid prevents cancer cells from replicating and allows them to go through normal apoptosis (cell death), without harming healthy cells. Ellagic acid also shows promise in helping control high blood pressure. Flavonoids which form part of the strawberry’s color help reduce artery clogging cholesterol. Strawberries are great for those trying to watch their weight too, because they’re fat free and one cup only contains 55 calories. Strawberries can help whiten teeth, because of acids found in them. They can even help reduce inflammation from sunburn. Just combine strawberry juice with a little honey and rub the mixture thoroughly onto skin before rinsing with

Theater review: The Odd Couple by Robin Edgar

Flat Rock Playhouse opened its 2013 season with the tried and true Neil Simon crowd pleaser, The Odd Couple. Directed by Kate Galvin the comedy plays through April 21, and features local actors, Charles Flynn-McIver and Scott Treadway, who play the hilariously mismatched roommates, Oscar Madison and Felix Unger. Other cast members include Laura Woyasz and Ellie Mooney as the zany British sisters, Gwendolyn and Cecily Pigeon, in the apartment upstairs; and the motley poker crew, Michael MacCauley as Murray, Ralph Redpath Roy, Peter Thomasson as Vinny and Gary Littman as Speed. Following its premiere on Broadway in 1965, the play has endured many successful revivals: a 1968 film and 1970s television series, as well as other derivative works and spin-offs, including the Simon’s 1985 female version. Although the plot, about two friends who become roommates after their marriages fail is mundane, Simon’s comedic take on how the neat, uptight Felix and the slovenly, easygoing Oscar interact (and their poker playing friends react) is hilarious. Treadway plays Felix Unger with his usual comedic aplomb, portraying the character’s compulsive neat freak nature with refreshing style, albeit with a bit over-the-top physical comedy. Flynn-McIver’s Oscar Madison,

however, is less believable, partly due to his physical appearance, which does not convey the messy, undisciplined sportswriter. Although he mostly hits the mark to get the laughs, it often sounds like he is imitating Walter Matthau, who won a Tony Award for Best Actor in that role. Woyasz and Mooney play the Pidgeon sisters to a tipsy tee and Littman, a newcomer to the Playhouse, shines as the irreverent Speed. Although Galvin may have miscast a few roles, she directed the physical comedy quite well. Dennis C. Maulden’s scenic design worked very well with the lighting

design by Stephen Terry and Kimberlee E. Winters. Overall, the Flat Rock production provides a night that is entertaining and funny. The Odd Couple plays through April 21 at Flat Rock Playhouse at 2661 Greenville Highway in Flat Rock, N.C. Evening performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and matinee performances are Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. Call the Playhouse box office at 828-693-0731, toll-free at 866-732-8008 or online at www. for ticket information.

Learn how to shop for a hearing aid Dear Savvy Senior, What tips can you offer people who are shopping for hearing aids? ~ Overwhelmed Senior Dear Overwhelmed, With so many choices and options available today, shopping for a hearing aid that meets your needs, lifestyle and budget can be challenging. Here are some tips that can help you locate a good hearing aid provider and choose an appropriate aid. Choose a provider The first step in buying a hearing aid is to choose a good provider. The best option – as recommended by Consumer Reports – is an otolaryngologist (an ear, nose and throat doctor) who employs an audiologist that fits and dispenses hearing aids. An otolaryngologist will first examine your ears and rule out any medical conditions such as a tumor, bacterial infection or ear wax that can affect your hearing. Medicare will cover the medical exam and an audiologist’s test if ordered by a physician. If you can’t find a conveniently located doctor’s office that dispenses aids, an independent audiologist or hearing instrument specialist is a good alternative. To search for these professionals in your area, see and ihsinfo. org. Big box retailers like Wal-Mart and Costco also sell hearing aids. Or, if you’re a veteran, be sure to check with your nearest VA health

facility. Eligible veterans may be able to get hearing aids for free. During your visit After you locate a provider, when you go in for your first visit you need to be prepared to discuss your lifestyle and hearing needs. For example: Do you just want to hear the TV, or other people speaking? Do you talk on the phone a lot? Do you need to hear in a lot of noisy places, like restaurants? Knowing your priorities will help your provider determine what style and hearing aid technology is best for you. You’ll also be given a hearing test in a soundproof booth to determine what type of hearing loss you have. After the test, your provider should give you a choice of hearing aid brands, features and styles to consider. To help you decide, ask for a demonstration. Many providers are able to put a disposable plug on the tip of a behind-the-ear hearing aid and program the device to your hearing loss so you can experience how it works. Also ask about popular addon features like “telecoils� that helps with phone conversations, “directional microphones� that can help you hear in noisy places, and “feedback cancellation� that prevents the aid from squealing when you get too close to other audio equipment. But, keep in mind that the extra features will drive up the price. At the fitting

Savvy Senior

friday tfns



After you buy your hearing aid, don’t leave the office without making sure it physically fits your ear and that it does what you want it to do. To help with this, ask to have a “real-ear� test which measures the match between your hearing loss and the response of your hearing aid. Also get a signed copy of a contract that outlines the hearing aid you’re buying, along with the price, trial period, any nonrefundable fees and the warranty. Most manufacturers allow a 30 to 60-day trial period to be sure you’re satisfied, and provide follow-up visits to help you with needed adjustments or questions. Resources You also need to know that digital hearing aids are expensive, typically costing between $1,000 and $3,500 per ear, and they’re not covered by traditional Medicare or most private insurance companies. To look for help, call the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders at 800241-1044 and ask them to mail you their list of financial resources for hearing aids. For more hearing aid information, get a copy of the “Consumer’s Guide to Hearing Aids� for $5.50 plus shipping at, or call 301-657-2248. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior� book.
