Polk County unemployment noted at 6.8 percent in May by Samantha Hurst

Polk County’s unemployment rate continues to fluctuate just above 6.5 percent. For the month of May, numbers released by the NC Department of Commerce showed the

county with a 6.8 percent unemployment rate, while the rate was 6.6 percent in April. This time last year the unemployment was a full point higher at 7.8 percent.

This recent percentage accounts for 635 unemployed individuals out of the 9,292 people believe to be a part of the workforce. Polk County’s unemployment rate has steadily declined since it

hit 10 percent in January 2010, according to the Polk County Economic Tourism Development Commission’s 2012-2013 review (full review available at www. polkedc.com).

St. Luke’s Hospital welcomes utilization review manager Robin Ruppe Robin Ruppe, RN, accredited case manager (ACM,) recently joined the St. Luke’s Hospital’s team as director of utilization review/discharge planning and will assume responsibility for managing each patient’s case from admission to discharge. St. Luke’s Hospital’s Utilization Review and Discharge Planning Department focuses on following Medicare and Medicaid regulations set forth by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Ruppe and her staff are patient

advocates and manage patient’s discharge to ensure each patient receives the care and resources they need when they return home. Ruppe also works closely with St. Luke’s hospitalists and educates and guides utilization review issues to ensure St. Luke’s Hospital is reimbursed in a timely manner. Ruppe comes to St. Luke’s Hospital from Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System where she was RN utilization case manager for five years. She worked at Spartanburg Regional for 11 years in various capacities includ-

ing patient care associate and registered nurse. She also has experience in surgical trauma ICU. “I am thrilled to be at St. Luke’s Hospital,” said Ruppe. “Everyone here is so friendly – from staff, to patients, to visitors. It’s a great feeling to be able to help others, especially at such an outstanding hospital.” “We welcome Robin’s enthusiasm and team building skills,” said Amy Norville, vice-president of support services. “This is an important position and we are pleased with the professionalism,

knowledge, and experience Robin brings to our hospital.” When not working, Ruppe enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She’s especially fond of her three grandchildren. – article submitted by Jennifer Wilson

Willy Wonka’s golden ticket holders The Salt family has found a Golden Ticket, but are they going to win the grand prize? Something suggests there should be an attitude adjustment. Mr. Salt is very loud and pushy, a typical over-the-top salesman type who throws his money around to impress. But his daughter, Veruca, who’s been spoiled rotten all her life, is far worse. She’s a wealthy, bratty snob who is able to manipulate her father to get whatever she wants. Eli Jenkins plays Mr. Salt. A rising senior, Jenkins has done theater since he was in fifth grade. “I love putting on a show and seeing people’s reactions to it‌ my favorite parts in this show are the scenes in the Bucket shack,

and Veruca’s song ‘I Want it Now.’ In real life, Keri Smith is a quiet girl, but Veruca brings out her alter ego. She attends Landrum High School and she’s only done one show before (last year’s Seussical), but you wouldn’t know it by the way she attacks the role. “My favorite part is when Eli has to pick me up and drag me off the stage,� she said. “Willy Wonka� is this year’s Tryon Little Theater / Youth Center Summer Production and if you hurry and get tickets, you’ll be able to see the magic unfold inside Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. The show opens July 18 and runs through July 21. Tickets are on sale at the TLT Workshop box office at 516 S. Trade St. in Tryon. Call

‘Smallest’ Hummingbird in the world – well, not quite The Bird Box

(continued from page 2)

S.), 828-749-2251 (Saluda) or 1-800-286-1326. Carolina Camera Club meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Tryon Fine Arts Center.

by Simon Thompson

Summer is a great time for nectar-feeding creatures. Flowers are blooming and the air is full of natural sounds. Buzzing around the flowers at this time of the year is a blizzard of butterflies, bees, moths and hummingbirds. There are many black and yellow tiger swallowtails, orange fritillaries and a whole host of skippers, all vying for the rich nectar source. Mixed in with all of these insects are our Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, dwarfing many of the feeding insects. As well as feeding on man-made hummingbird feeders, these high-energy sprites of the bird world feed on many flowering plants and shrubs. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are some of the smallest birds in North Carolina, but at this time of the year they seem to have been joined by an even smaller “hummingbird” on the flowers. However, this tiny animal is not a bird, but a species of moth, a member of the large sphinx moth family. This is the Hummingbird Clearwing, and along with two other fairly similar moth species, is a common sight during the warm summer months. Actually, compared to the c.10 cm wingspan of the Ruby-throat, these moths are much smaller and their wingspan rarely reaches six cm. So why do we mistake these two totally un-

related animals? There are a few similarities. Both share a greenish furry/feathery body. Both move their wings very fast, although with a close inspection it is possible to see the transparent wing patches of the Clearwing moths. Also the moths have a dark, almost forked tail, very much like the dark tail of the male Ruby-throated Hummingbird. They both hover in front of tubular flowers and while the hummingbird has a long bill to feed with, the Hummingbird Clearwing unrolls its very long proboscis to insert into the flower. You should look for some of these features the next time you see a very, very small hummingbird. So now what are the differences between the two species? To start with, the biggest distinction is their size. Then there is the speed that they buzz around the flowers. Hummingbirds tend to move faster and move from flower to flower in rapid bursts of energy. Clearwing moths slowly work one shrub, feeding from flower to flower in a more methodical manner. Another big difference is the fact that hummingbirds are vocal and make excited twittering noises, and moths

are completely silent. Oh, and we must not forget that the moth has two antennae sprouting from the top of its head. No hummingbird would ever possess those strange growths. But there is a bird that is very close in size to some of these moths. This is the Bee Hummingbird, the smallest hummingbird in the world, which lives in Cuba and the adjacent Isle of Youth. This is about 6.5 cm in length, and is indeed very close in size to the larger clearwing moths. While we do get rare hummingbird visitors from the western United States, the Bee Hummingbird is not a species that is ever likely to occur in North Carolina, so no confusion is ever likely to arise.
