Olsen wins CNN iReport award for The Shoe Cobbler documentary Henry Linder did try to give up the shoe repair business once. It was 1991, and he was about to turn 72. He figured he was ready to stop fixing footwear and spend more time in the yard. That lasted about three months. Linder and his wife were on Social Security and needed a little extra income - but mostly, he missed his customers. Now, at 93, this gentle craftsman with a thick Southern accent, a faded blue apron and a gift for gab is still charming customers in the shop behind his home in Landrum. Linder is a beloved fixture of Landrum, a town of 2,400 people in the Blue Ridge Mountains between Spartanburg, S.C., and Asheville, N.C. He has been featured in countless local newspaper stories and was the grand marshal of the town’s 2008 Christmas parade. (Continued on page 7)

Landrum Depot renovations moving along by Samantha Hurst

McCarty Painting of Landrum brushed a coat of paint onto the trim of the Landrum Depot Thursday, June 27 putting the building’s exterior just steps from completion. Landrum City Administrator Caitlin Martin said the renovation project is expected to be complete by August. “We’re really excited about what the finished product will look like,” Martin said. Martin said some of the elements such as hardwood flooring, tile and a state of the art AV system will enhance the building’s usefulness to the community. She added that grants from the Polk County Community Foundation’s Mary F. Kessler Fund provided $9,000 for the AV system and $7,000 for the outdoor stage. Martin said the stage and landscaping are the last exterior items left. The interior, however, still has a little way to go. Architect John Walters said now that work is complete to reinforce the ceiling, crews can move on to the electrical, heating and air, and plumbing. He said sheetrock, doors and trim would follow. Building the stage and landscaping will be the last item on the project list, with bids going out for that portion next month. Walters said he thinks the public will be very happy with the depot’s makeover.

“If you had been in it before they had done anything, the old meeting room had no windows; it had dark paneling. Now it’s really nice and bright in there,” Walters said. “I think it will be very attractive for events.” Walters said he and city officials worked to to keep the elements similar to the historic design of the depot. The color – dark sage gray with white trim – was selected to match post World War II colors. The Southern Railway Historical Association provided the paint chips that would fit historical specifications. The Tryon, Hendersonville and Old Fort depots, Walters said, are all painted in a bright yellow in line with the style of depots built prior to World War II. Signs to hang at each end of the depot will also have “Landrum” written with a lettering style that will all but match the old signs that once hung on the depot. Martin said the city also plans to include a historical display inside the depot to present items found on the property during the renovation process – old receipt books and bullet cases. “Everyone around here has been very excited about the progress,” Martin said. “People coming into town have been really inquisitive and want to know more about its history and when it will be finished so they can come back.”

that the county’s 20/20 vision plan says that it will be a policy of the county to give preference to clean industries/businesses including eco and agri-tourism and that the plan considers local entrepreneurship to be crucial to a stable local economy. If commissioners approve the new ordinance, the county’s zoning ordinance will be amended to change the current home occupation to customary home occupation, class I which is permitted in the E, REI, RE2, AR, R, MR, NC, HC, I, MU, FF and AR 5 zoning districts.

Friday, June 28, 2013

Customary Home Occupation, Class II would be permitted in the MU, AR5 and R districts and residential vacation rentals would be permitted with conditions in the MU, AR5 and R zoning districts. Customary Home Occupation, Class II would include uses conducted entirely within dwellings as permitted under customary home occupation, class I, and adds permitted uses that are conducted entirely within an accessory building no greater than 2,500 square feet. Use restrictions as to mechanical equipment applicable to customary home occupation, class I would not apply to uses conducted entirely within an accessory building, according to the draft zoning ordinance. Permitted uses must be clearly incidental and secondary to the primary use of the parcel for residential purposes and should not change the character. Outdoor displays are not permitted. Other restrictions include that the permitted use must be carried on by the occupants of the dwelling with no more than one non-resident employee. The draft residential vacation rental use is defined as the rental of any single-family dwelling, duplex, guest house, accessory/ garage apartment or mult-family or any portion thereof, for occupancy, dwelling, lodging or sleeping purposed for any period of time less than 90 days. The term does not include other transient lodging such as hotels and motel and bed & breakfast establishments, which are otherwise authorized under the exception section. Exceptions include that incidental residential vacation rentals, defined to mean no more than two such rentals in any calendar year, where the total annual rental period for both rentals does not exceed two weeks, provided there were no advertisements that the unit was available. The planning board is recommending the vacation rentals following the county’s approval of a new Equestrian zoning district at the White Oak development. The county will collect occupancy tax for the vacation rental properties. County commissioners have not yet scheduled a public hearing for the new ordinance.

“I make other people happy, or I think I do – they say I do,” Linder said in an interview with CNN. “People want to know when I’m going to quit. I say, ‘when my toes are turned up.’” After learning about Linder years ago, a local filmmaker thought the cobbler deserved a little more recognition. He wasn’t alone. Erik Olsen’s 2012 short documentary about Linder, “The Shoe Cobbler,” won the Community Choice award in the third annual iReport Awards. The three-minute film was picked by audience votes from among 36 nominees in six categories of audience storytelling. “This was a wonderful look of what America can be at its best,” one viewer wrote. “We need more Mr. Linders in our society.” Linder, who doesn’t own a computer, is a little baffled by the attention. “I guess people are just interested in me. I’m thankful for that,” Linder said. “I guess they think it’s pretty fascinating to be an old man still fixing shoes.” When Olsen made the film, he said he felt he needed to share Linder’s story before it was too late. “The fact that he’s still on his feet ... his attitude about people and business is just so uplifting,” said Olsen, a former news photographer for a couple of ABC affiliates in North Carolina. He went into the shop one day, asked for an interview, and edited the piece that night. Linder was 17 when he first started repairing shoes during the Great Depression. Horseback riders make up much of his business, but over the years, he has given new life to all types of leather products, including children’s baseball gloves, handbags and even a lady’s corset (that was probably his oddest request, he says). – article submitted by CNN

situation is resolved.” “This is all about that ferret that bit you on the nose, isn’t it?” I shouted, but he had padded down the steps: (I would tell you more about that, but Paul refuses to discuss it. All he has ever told me is that he has revulsion for all things rodent or rodent-like in appearance, ever since the ferret incident. It’s this sort of tantalizing tidbit of intrigue that keeps romance alive, I’ve read; not knowing every single detail about your partner’s life before you.) “Come on now, Steve,” I murmured to the squirrel, feeling that if I named him, he wouldn’t feel

quite as much as an intruder. I plucked a towel from the handrail and, after a series of fits and starts, drove him into the bathroom, closed the door behind me and marveled at his athletic ability as he shimmied up the shower door and leapt to the pedestal sink where he found refuge, peeking round Paul’s shaving mug. It was here that I was able to handily drop the towel on top of his tiny body and carry him back to the deck to release him. “It’s amazing,” I said brightly to Paul, a half hour later in bed, as I skimmed through “Fun Facts About Flying Squirrels” on a

website. “Did you know that the record glide of these guys is 300 feet?” “That a fact?” “Mmm. And they’re nocturnal, which explains the huge eyes, and they go feeding at night, eating fruits and nuts and even the rotting flesh of dead animals, all the while gliding from tree to tree. Gosh, think of all the activity that goes on in the woods behind us at night!” “Fascinating,” Paul said dully. “And in parts of Asia, they grow to be four feet long!” “Goodnight.” said Paul. “And lock the bloody doors.”

Both he and Mia were out of the room in a blink. “It’s just a little flying squirrel,” I said to my departing man. “I want nothing to do with it,” he said, clicking the door behind him. “I’ll be downstairs until the

Former Wolverine Lucas Cash following baseball dreams by Mark Schmerling

Baseball dreams die slowly, if at all. For former Polk County High School standout pitcher Lucas Cash, the dream of playing professional ball, possibly Major League, is very much alive. Cash, who pitches for Virginia Military Institute on a baseball scholarship, recently signed to play this summer for the Forest City Owls in the Coastal Plain League, a circuit designed to give gifted college players a better chance to catch the eyes of bigleague scouts. “It gives scouts a good idea if we can handle the everyday life Lucas Cash (of professional baseball),” said Cash, who graduated from PCHS a year ahead of Cash, is now in 2011. In his case, scouts should be playing summer ball for Gastomaking plenty of notes. As of last nia in the CPL. More than 1,000 week, all three of his starts have CPL players have been drafted into professional ball. Of those, been pretty good. “I’m one pitch away from 57 have played in the Major having a great game,” Cash said.

Two years or so later, “I’m good to go,” he reported. “It’s just a waiting game.” Before the surgery, Cash’s fastball clocked in at 89-91 mph. Though he can still get the ball to the plate quickly, “I’m waiting for the day to come when I start throwing hard again.” In the meantime, he’s working on a slider to mix in with curves and change-ups. When Cash’s hummer returns, those other offerings will be even more effective. Wolverines’ varsity coach Ty Stott had nothing but praise for his former player. “He (Cash) was player of the year in the conference. We won back-to-back conference championships with him as a sophomore

and junior,” Stott said. In Cash’s freshman year, he propelled the JV team to a 17-1 record. Not surprisingly, he didn’t throw quite as hard then. His fastball at the time was about 84 mph, remembered Stott. Stott emphasized, “He could have been a four-year starter with most teams. If I had a freshmen Lucas Cash, he’d be a starter for us now.” “Lucas looked like he was 6’10” on the mound,” Stott said. Cash was 6’1” at the time. “He had a big presence on the mound.” Cash’s fans hope professional scouts notice that presence, too. For now, his mother, Lisa Cash, notes, “He’s having a lot of fun.”

‘Willy Wonka’ and his lighting tech… Having worked on stage or behind the scenes on every youth production since Annie (2004), Sara Seagle is no stranger to Tryon Little Theater’s world. Two of her favorite roles were as the aviator in “The Little Prince” in 2007, and more recently portraying Mrs. Mayor in last year’s production of “Seussical.” But for this year’s show “Willy Wonka”, she’ll be working on lighting design, which is great experience for her since she wants to study lighting design and technology in college. Over the years she’s stagemanaged for “Pippin,” worked sound for “Charlotte’s Web,” and has run crew on many shows, including TFAC’s Fall Educational Tours under the tutelage of Marianne Carruth and Jody McPherson. Now a graduating senior looking to the future, she says she “got the bug when I was 6 during a drama class.” She is “very excited about ‘Willy Wonka,’ and I’m looking forward

What to consider before joining a clinical trial Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about clinical trials and how to go about finding one? My wife has a chronic condition and we’re interested in trying anything that may be able to help her. ~ Looking For Help Dear Looking, Each year, hundreds of thousands of Americans participate in clinical trials in hopes of gaining access to the latest, and possibly greatest, but not yet on the market treatments for all types of illnesses. But, you need to be aware that clinical trials can vary greatly in what they’re designed to do, so be careful to choose one that can actually benefit your wife. Here’s what you should know along with some tips for locating one. Clinical trials A clinical trial is the scientific term for a test or research study of a drug, device or medical procedure using people. These trials – sponsored by drug companies, doctors, hospitals and the federal government – are conducted to learn whether a new treatment is safe and if it works. But, keep in mind that these new treatments are also unproven, so there may be risks too. Also, be aware that all clinical trials have certain eligibility criteria (age, gender, health status, etc.) that your wife must meet in order to be accepted. And before taking part in a trial, she’ll be asked to sign an informed consent agreement. She can also leave a study at any time. Things to know Before deciding to participate in a trial, you and your wife need to first discuss it with her doctor. Then, schedule an appointment with the study’s medical team and ask lots of questions. Here are some to get you started. • What’s the purpose of the

Savvy Senior study and can it improve your wife’s condition? You may be surprised to know that many drug or procedural trials are not designed to find a cure or improve a patient’s health, but only to provide scientific data. • What are the risks? Some treatments can have side effects that are unpleasant, serious and even life-threatening. • What kinds of tests and treatments does the study involve, and how often and where are they performed? • Is the experimental treatment in the study being compared with a standard treatment or a placebo? Keep in mind that if your wife gets the placebo, she’ll be getting no treatment at all. • Who’s paying for the study? Will you have any costs, and if so, will your insurance plan or Medicare cover the rest? Sponsors of trials generally pay most of the costs, but not always. • What if something goes wrong during or after the trial and your wife needs extra medical care? Who pays? • If the treatment works, can your wife keep using it after the study? Find a trial Every year, there are more than 100,000 clinical trials conducted in the U.S. You can find them at conditionfocused organizations like the American Cancer Society or the Alzheimer’s Association, or by asking her doctor who may be monitoring trials in his or her specialty. Or, use the National Institutes of Heath’s website at This site contains a comprehensive database of federally and privately supported clinical studies in the U.S. and abroad on a wide range of diseases and conditions,

including information about e a c h t r i a l ’s p u r p o s e , w h o may participate, locations and phone numbers for more details. If, however, you don’t have Internet access or could use some help finding the right trial, use the Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (ciscrp. org). This is a nonprofit organization that will take your wife’s information over the phone, do a thorough clinical trials search for you and mail or email you the results in a few days. Call 877-633-4376 for assistance. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, Okla. 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
