Saluda Grade no obstacle for cyclists riding to raise funds, conquer cancer by Mark Schmerling

For cyclists participating in the fifth annual Ride to Conquer Cancer, the road, in this case the Saluda Grade on U.S. 176, became the vehicle to enjoy fine riding conditions, companionship and contribute to fighting and surviving cancer.

The recent event, which brought out about 40 cyclists, was a fundraiser for the Livestrong Foundation, and for the Gibbs Cancer Center Survivorship program in Spartanburg. Livestrong was

She and her husband, Terry, also own Restoration Farm. “Community support has always been a part of who we are in this county and agriculture certainly brings us together,” said Jordan. “We can all agree that food is important.” Jordan has been actively involved in Polk County agriculture through local markets and the development of the Mill Spring Ag Center, states a release sent by the county. “As interim agricultural economic development director I want to see our county continue to move forward in developing a strong and expanding market for our products,” Jordan said. “I want to support the farmers and producers in development of new ventures or strengthening existing ones. There are also many young farmers that are looking for mentorship and opportunities to gain experience; we have a lot of agricultural experience within our borders, I would like to see connections between the two.” Polk County is historically an agricultural area, Jordan said. The county has maintained that economic base, which has been, and continues to be, a strength for Polk citizens, she said. Jordan said as a county, we are strategically positioned to offer products into local and regional markets and these markets are expanding rapidly as the demand for local continues to rise. The education of the positive aspects of local, fresh produce is important as well, she said. “Our county leaders were forward thinking in the hiring of an agricultural economic development director five years ago,” said Jordan. “Through the ongoing efforts of Farmland Preservation and Polk Soil and Water Board, our farmlands are being supported and preserved for future generations, that is my goal as well.”

The interim ag development director also helps to ensure the farmers markets are running well. Here Louis Williams, the “Sunflower Man,” offers up his doses of sunshine to people on Saturday mornings. (photo by Samantha Hurst)

Jordan was raised in Green Creek and continues to live in Green Creek with her husband Terry. Dawn and Terry have four grown children. They attend Grace Foothills Church in Tryon and enjoy camping, hiking with their dogs and visiting historical places. Following Sprague’s resignation, the Polk County Board of Commissioners held a joint meeting with the Polk Soil & Water District and the Polk County Farmland Preservation Board to discuss the future of agriculture in Polk County. The meeting was highly attended with many residents speaking on the importance of replacing the agricultural economic development position. Commissioners stated at that time that they had continued funding for the position and department in [next year’s] budget, which begins today. Commissioners later decided to advertise for an interim director in order to quickly fill the position.

Polk County has a new board of elections following the state board of elections announcing new appointments last week. The new board will be sworn in during the board’s first meeting on Tuesday, July 16 at noon. The new board members are David Moore (R), Scott Woodworth (R) and Sharon Goettert (D). The new board replaces former board members Becky Ken-

Polk County also has hired new board of elections director Tracy Waters this year following the retirement of former elections director Dale Edwards.

Foster care, adoption and the empty nest To the editor: About a year ago our last child graduated from college, got his own place and began his life as an independent and self-sufficient adult. After raising four kids, the two of us were quite ready for our newly found independence and the spontaneity that only an empty nest can bring. We had several grandkids Letter and were able to see to the them regularly and Editor they certainly were and are an important part of our “post kid” lives. Travel and other self-fulfilling opportunities moved to the forefront of our plans and we continue to enjoy those well-earned pleasures. One of our self-fulfilling enterprises has included a desire to give back and contribute to society in ways not previously practical when we were so involved with our careers and raising our kids. We explored options like the Peace Corps or other far away public service opportunities, but ultimately decided on something closer to home … something that might in some way benefit our local community or county. While we were happy that our children were leading successful lives, we were still interested in helping other children or families to hopefully make it through difficult times on their own paths through life. We discovered that Polk County DSS manages foster care and adoption services, amongst their numerous other social service programs. Here was something right in our local community that directly

helps children within Polk County. As is almost always the case, the children themselves were not responsible for the circumstances they had found themselves in. We found that through foster care involvement we had a chance to not only give back but also to provide the love, stability and care that every child needs to hopefully tackle life’s twists and turns. While our personal goal and intent has been to provide short or long-term foster care as needed, the option of adopting a child and committing to a longer term investment may be a possible option as well. Through this process we have both come to understand that being an “empty nester” is not necessarily restricted to older baby boomers like ourselves. We have come to understand that “empty nesters” can also be younger adults or couples who possess the love and desire to help children live their lives in safe and loving households. Possibilities exist to get involved with children of various ages either through becoming a foster care provider or an adoptive family. Thus far this new adventure for us has been both rewarding and worthwhile in the joy we have experienced and the role we hope we can play in the healthy development of children in need. If your or someone you know might be interested in the Polk County Foster Care or Adoption Programs, please contact Polk County DSS at 828-894-2100. The initial training classes are set to begin in September 2013. – article submitted by DSS social worker Jennifer Pittman for a current foster parent

Flack commissions portrait to send to San Francisco Longtime Tryon resident, Tah Flack recently commissioned an oil portrait from artist Richard Christian Nelson. The painting was done to send to San Francisco for a large family wedding since she cannot make the trip herself. “It was such a joy meeting and working with Tah on this portrait,” Flack said. “She has such vitality and so many interesting stories from the past; of Tryon and New York and Europe...” Flack moved to Tryon in the 1950s, and she and her husband raised their three children here. Nelson was amazed to learn that her grandfather, August Eisenmenger was a great painter and teacher in late 19th century Vienna, Austria. Flack showed Nelson some of her grandfather’s beautiful work and told him how her grandparents hosted salons with luminaries such as Munch, Freud, Jung, Mahler and Strauss. Eisenmenger is buried in Vienna, not far from Beethoven and other giants. His tomb was a gift from generations of grateful students to their beloved teacher.

Tah Flack and Richard Nelson in front of portrait.

Nelson moved to Tryon in 2004 with his wife, Kim and their three children. “I am constantly stunned by all the different kinds of people here, and it’s so nice to learn

some of the history of their lives. We had no idea of the interesting folks we would meet here, and the history, art, architecture and traditions we would find here!” Flack said “I just love the

painting - I found a good painter.” High praise indeed! Skyuka Fine Art is located at 133 N. Trade Street in Tryon. - article submitted by Kim Nelson

Dave Cornelius named Tryon Rotarian of the Year Beginning in 1974 and each year thereafter, the Rotary Club of Tryon has selected a Rotarian of the Year. The award is named in honor of the late Joseph W. Wells who, as a member of the local club, served as Rotary District Governor for western North Carolina in 1974. Selection for the annual award is based on the ideal of Rotary, which is “service above self.” The club is pleased to announce that this year’s recipient is Dave Cornelius who was presented the award by Past President Don Lyons at the club’s annual meeting.

As noted in the presentation, Cornelius has long served admirably as the treasurer of the club and on the Board of Directors. He has been a very active volunteer for all of the club’s projects to included Career Day, Shrimpfest, Community Chorus and environmental improvement and has been a strong supporter of the Rotary Foundation to promote world peace and understanding. In addition, Cornelius has been an active volunteer for TFAC, the Red Cross and other organizations. The Rotary Club of Tryon is very proud to recognize Dave Cornelius for his outstanding

Youth dig into reading this summer at Polk County libraries Pint Size Polkas performed an amazing “Polkas You Can Dig” show at the Polk County Public Library, according to library staff. The children who attended sang and danced to polka tunes such as the “Chicken Dance” and “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.” The library’s next children’s event for the Summer Reading Program will be Fli-Rite Learning. Educator T.J. Shimeld will present his program “Dig into the Past: Exploring Ancient Egypt and Simple Machines” at both the Columbus library (Tuesday, July 9 at 10:30 a.m.) and the Saluda Library (Wednesday, July 10 at 10:30 a.m.). Join Shimeld as he brings books to life with glorious costumes, magic, puppetry and hands-on demonstrations to get kids excited about how books can transport us across time and space. Summer Reading Program children’s events will continue through Aug. 6. Upcoming performers include Professor Whizzpop and Big Bang Boom. The library will also have a movie night and a cookout at Harmon Field. Please note that

registration is required for the cookout. Children of all ages can also register for the Summer Reading Program and receive a reading log and other goodies. Kids can then bring their reading logs in every week for a sticker and turn them in at the end of the summer to receive a prize. One lucky reader will also win the grand prize: a $50 gift certificate to The Book Shelf in Tryon. For more information, check out our website at polklibrary. org/kids/2013-summer-readingprogram/.

Betty Burdue’s watercolors showcased at Garden Gallery in July For the month of July, Thompson Garden Gallery is featuring Tryon artist Betty Burdue. She has studied under various well-known artists in Michigan (where she’s from), North Carolina (where she summers) and Florida (where she winters). Through the years, she has received many ribbons and honors for her oils and watercolors. On Saturday, July 13, Erin and Cory Thompson will host an opening reception for Burdue. It will be from 5–8 p.m., the same time as the Art Trot. Lope by and see her watercolors and notecards showing Tryon scenes and other Polk County points of interest such as local architecture, landscapes and flowers. Burdue’s studio has been one of the locations for Art Trek Tryon. This past summer, she donated her “Save Morris” poster to help pay for the Tryon landmark’s muchneeded refurbishing. Settling in Tryon seven years ago, Burdue comments, “Wonder-

Then, whether in my studio or in plain air, I take it from there.” At Thompson Garden Gallery, see the works of more than 40 local artists and craftspeople among hand-picked, whimsical and practical items for the home and garden.
