TFAC awards BIG funding to area teachers by Samantha Hurst

The Tryon Fine Arts Center’s (TFAC) Arts in Education committee gave away BIG funds during a reception Wednesday, Aug. 21 to teachers prepping to take innovative art programs to their students this school year. The Be Inspired Grant (B.I.G.) Program, launched earlier this year, was created with the focus of providing

teachers with more resources to create programming to engage youth in new ways through art. SueZ Truitt, who TFAC staff credit as the brainchild of the program, said inspiration came from an article in The Washington Post that lists 10 life skills learned through the arts. Those skills include creativity, confidence, problem

solving, perseverance, focus, nonverbal communication, receiving constructive feedback, collaboration, dedication and accountability. “We are pleased to create this program in support of our teachers and creativity in the classroom,” said Truitt. A total of 21 submissions were evaluated on a point system giving consideration to each potential program’s impact on students, creativity, activity and goals, budget, relevance to the arts and presentation. Of those 21 grant applicants, 15 programs from Polk County and District One schools were awarded up to $500 a piece. “Thank you for your dedication to our students. We truly understand the value of the arts and want to support your efforts,” TFAC Arts in Education director Marianne Carruth said to the teachers present at Wednesday’s reception.

We haven’t had to cut our programs, but money for anything above and beyond is always so valuable.” Programs receiving funds include: The Wheels on the Bus – Educator Jessica Pym, CampobelloGramling Getting the “Arts” of Read-

Non-mobile driver’s license office in Polk’s future by Leah Justice

We have a New York Direct Sales Connection!

Polk County Commissioner Keith Holbert announced this week that a non-mobile driver’s license office could happen in Polk County’s future. The Polk County Board of Commissioners met Monday, Aug. 19 and heard from Holbert who said Phillip Lewis with the N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles notified him that Polk County was accepted to receive an in-house driver’s license office in place of the current mobile unit that comes to Columbus. Holbert said two of his top priorities when running for commissioner were to get a driver’s license office and license tag office in Polk County. Currently, Polk has no tag office. A mobile driver’s license unit comes to Columbus three Thursdays a month. Resident William Harper sat on a park bench outside the mobile DMV Thursday, Aug. 22 waiting his turn to purchase a new license. He said luckily the day was nice, but that’s not always been the case. “Sometimes you’ll see people waiting in their cars because its raining so hard and that makes it difficult to know who’s turn it is,” Harper said. “About two years ago I stood out here waiting for about 45 minutes.” Another resident waiting with him said she’s tried to come by several times to get a book to study, but gave up and printed information from the Internet when the mobile unit didn’t show up. She said, pointing at a singular step about a foot off the ground, that she’s concerned it would be difficult for someone with disabilities to even get inside the unit. Polk County commissioners have said they envision a combined tag and driver’s license office in the current Polk County Early College that was formerly the Polk County Library on

Walker Street in downtown Columbus. The county has agreed with its school system to borrow up to $800,000 to move and renovate a building so the early college might be moved. School officials have asked the county to move the program into a larger building closer to the high school so more students can participate. A closer location would also give students in the program access to the school campus. The school system has been in negotiations to purchase a building near the high school. There is not currently a date set for the permanent office to open in Polk County. Until the office opens, the mobile unit will continue to be available from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. three Thursdays per month. Other department of motor vehicle offices are located in the nearby cities of Hendersonville and Forest City five days per week. Teenager Cody Halford was waiting his turn outside the bus as well. He said he came to take his driver’s license test in Columbus versus driving to Forest City or Hendersonville because he thought it would be more convenient. Halford said he thinks it would be easier for other teenagers like him if a permanent office was available. Following is the remaining 2013 calendar of the driver’s license mobile unit in Polk County. Sept.: 5, 12, 19; Oct.: 10, 17, 24; Nov.: 7, 14, 21; Dec.: 5, 12, 19. – Samantha Hurst contributed to this article

Tryon makes room for museum by Leah Justice

Tryon Town Council agreed this week to move its town hall offices to the other side of the building to make room for a museum and visitor’s center. Council met Tuesday, Aug. 20 and approved moving the town’s offices. Commissioner Roy Miller was the sole vote against the move. An ad hoc museum committee asked the town to move its current town hall offices so a visitor’s center and museum could be housed in a visible location. Estimates are that moving the offices will cost approximately $10,000. Museum committee chair Happy McCleod said the committee’s plan is for the town not to spend any money except for having to move its offices. The plan, she said, is for the committee to obtain grants, donations and volunteer labor to renovate the new museum space. Tryon Town Manager Joey Davis said council asked him in June to get more specific pricing on what it would cost to move the offices. He said the biggest cost would be replacing the carpet, which has been there for years

She was the beloved wife of Demetrius Haydon Eleftheratos, formerly of Windsor, N.Y. Teresa was born in Los Angeles, Calif. on November 16, 1960 and grew up in Polk County.

and suffered mold issues. Concern over mold is the reason offices moved to the other side of the building in the first place, Davis said, which has since been fixed. Replacing the carpet would cost approximately $6,000. Commissioner George Baker said he wants to hear a compelling argument for spending approximately $10,000 to relocate the offices. Davis said the space would flow better if the offices moved. He said currently the clerk’s office is a pass through office. “If you tell us you want us to move, we’ll gladly move,” Davis said. “If you tell us you want us to stay, we’ll stay.” McCleod said on April 16 the proposal was that the town, the Tryon Downtown Development Association (TDDA) and the Tryon Tourism Development Authority (TTDA) would jointly create the museum for the town. The town was asked to provide the space, she said, with the TDDA and TTDA in charge of writing grants to pay for the costs of renovation. “There is no money now, but there will be,” said McCleod.

Saluda 5k9 set for Oct. 12 Lace up your shoes, leash up your dog and run for the green (space, that is). Saluda Community Land Trust (SCLT) will host the Saluda 5K9 Oct. 12 at 9 a.m. starting at the Saluda Elementary School tennis courts. The earlier a runner registers, the cheaper their registration fee. Registration goes up after Oct. 4. Registration will also be held the day of the event from 8-8:45 a.m. Parking will be available in the school’s back lot off Seminary Street, in the McCreery Park lot in the center of town and in the town parking lot off of Main Street extension. The run will begin and end at the Saluda Elementary School tennis courts in downtown Saluda. The course will pass through a trail adjacent to the school, which is maintained by the SCLT, wind through the Henderson Street residential neighborhood, include the 1 mile Lazy Girl Loop, also maintained by SCLT, and come back to town via The Meadows. The course is an approximately 5k (3.1 mile) loop. Humans are welcome to participate without a dog, but all dogs must have a human companion. Walking participants are also welcome. Prizes will be awarded to

the first three finishers who have pre-guessed their run time most accurately (must be a person/dog combo to qualify for a prize). Don’t forget to name your guess on your registration form. Other random prizes may also be awarded. An awards ceremony and celebration will be held at 11 a.m. in McCreery Park in the center of town. Please join the community and SCLT members (with your dogs) for the post-run festivities. If an individual or business would like to be a sponsor, for a donation or a canine-related gift or gift certificate, call 828-3296790 or email ellenwrogers@ hotmail.com.Checks made out to SCLT can be sent to The Saluda 5k9, c/o PO Box 1126, Saluda, NC 28773.

deprive tissues of oxygen and may produce a condition called “metastatic oxalosis,” where deposits of oxalate build in the kidneys (kidney stones) and heart (this produces abnormal rhythms). Mega doses of vitamin C can also cause diarrhea, because of its laxative effect. So, to sum things up, do I recommend taking extra vitamin C, and is it safe? Yes, it’ll make you healthier, but remember, you can always get too much of a good thing. Diet or exercise question? Email me at dwcrocker77@ gmail.com or visit fitness4yourlife.org.

I can’t thank all of you enough, who gave condolences for my precious Rojo. The years just flew by and she became a loving fixture in my household, I’ll miss her. On the morning Rojo passed, I paid a visit to Auntie Peg in her new home. She is the little Pekingese who was lying in a ditch near death’s door. I became quite attached to this little dynamo as she fought her way back to life. She now resides with Karen and Walter Killough and their three shitzus, and she fits in like a glove. It was such a joyful visit that for a few hours, I could put Rojo in the back of my mind. Peggy came right up to me and looked up as if to say, “Thanks, Uncle Lennie.” “She remembers you,” Karen said. I picked her up to nuzzle her and replied, “Somehow they all do.” I once wrote that love is not enough, and in many cases, that’s quite true, but under the correct circumstances, love is magic. Helen Gregg, an ace foster parent for Foothills Humane Society, brought me Sophie, a chihuahua, that had been attacked by the

Assistance programs that help seniors with health care costs Dear Savvy Senior, Are there any programs that you know of that help seniors with their Medicare expenses? I’m 67 and live primarily on my Social Security, and am having a hard time paying my Medicare premiums, deductibles, co-pays and prescription drug costs. - Need some help Dear Need, There are several financial assistance programs that can help Medicare beneficiaries who are having a tough time paying their out-of-pocket health care costs. Here’s what’s offered, along with the eligibility requirements and how to apply. Medicare savings Let’s start with a program that helps lower-income Medicare beneficiaries pay premiums and out-of-pocket costs for Medicare Parts A and B. It’s called the Medicare Savings Program (MSP), and it has several different benefit levels for people with different financial resources. At its most generous, the program will pay your Part B premium and pretty much all your Medicare deductibles and coinsurance. At its least generous, the program will pay just your Part B premium. To qualify for a MSP, the minimum standard set by Medicare, is an income under 135 percent of the federal poverty level, which at the moment works out to around $1,313 a month for individuals. Everything counts towards income, including payouts from 401(k) plans, pensions, Social Security and help from family members. Medicare also allows states to impose an asset test, which can be as little as $7,080 per individual, not counting your house or car, but counting retirement savings and bank accounts.

But some states have made their MSP programs a lot more generous, with much higher income limits and in some cases no asset tests at all. And the program may be called something else in your state. To find out if you qualify or to apply, contact your local Medicaid office – call 800-633-4227 for contact information. Medication assistance For help with your Medicare prescription drug plan costs, there is another completely separate program called Extra Help. To get it, you’ll need to apply through your local Social Security office. Depending on exactly how low your income is, the program will pay all or part of your Part D prescription drug plan premium and deductible, a hefty chunk of your copay, and totally eliminate the doughnut hole coverage gap. In 2013, individuals with an income below $1,436 a month, and assets under $13,300 can qualify for Extra Help. If you’re eligible to be in a Medicare Savings Program, you will automatically qualify for Extra Help. But because the requirements are slightly different, even if you don’t qualify for a Medicare Savings Program for Part B, you might be able to get Extra Help for Part D. For more information or to apply, call Social Security at 800-7721213 or visit socialsecurity.gov/ prescriptionhelp. Get help To help you find out if you’re eligible for these programs, use the National Council on Aging web-based tool at benefitscheckup.org. You’ll need to fill out an online questionnaire that asks things like your date of birth, zip code, expenses, income, assets and a few other things.

Once completed you’ll get a report detailing which programs you may qualify for, along with downloadable application forms and, in the case of Extra Help, allow you to complete your entire application online. The program even knows the specific MSP eligibility rules in your state. Or, if you don’t have Internet access, contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), who provides free one-on-one Medicare counseling in person or over the phone. To locate your local SHIP, call the eldercare locator at 800-677-1116. Send your senior questions to Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

Tryon Federal Bank makes donation to Polk athletics Tr yon Federal Bank’s Jerr y Johnson, right, presented a check Aug. 6 to Jim Hemphill, left, with Polk County Athletics for $2,500 in sponsorships. Hemphill said in the past, Polk County athletics has used donations like this to assist with costs when teams travel to participate in state playoffs or to assist with other fundraising endeavors such as annual golf tournaments – one for girls basketball and one for boys basketball. “The good thing about Polk County is when I go out to try and raise money for the school, we only have one school and don’t have all the competition for funds. Plus, almost anyone who lives in Polk County has gone to a Polk County school so they have a strong desire to help our kids have the best experience possible,” Hemphill said. Hemphill added that the money is not used for just one sport, but all spor ts Polk County students participate in each year.

Borderland Dressage Sept. 14-15 The very popular Borderland Dressage show, managed by Kay Whitlock from Southern Pines, will be held at FENCE on Saturday and Sunday, September 14-15. Entries are now being accepted by contacting Whitlock at KayDQ@fastmail.fm, or by phone at 910-315-5959 or 910692-8467. A prize list (classes offered, cost of entries, stabling and all pertinent information) is available at www.CarolinaDressage.com. This year a special trophy for the winner of Saturday’s Prix St. George class has been donated in memory of Sandy Davidson. Prix St. George is the first of the International dressage levels that requires a horse to demonstrate some beautiful advanced movements including collected, medium and extended gaits, half passes, tempi flying changes and pirouettes. The class will start at about 1 p.m. on Saturday, immediately following the lunch break, and the memorial trophy will be presented during the competitor get-together after the close of Saturday’s competition. In addition to being a dedicated dressage rider Sandy was well known as a volunteer scribe for the many equestrian activities at FENCE. She also gave freely of her time to the Foothills Humane Society with her loving care of the dogs and cats at the shelter. She was loved by all and is remembered fondly by her many friends in the area. The Borderline Dressage show is aptly named because FENCE straddles the NC/SC border. This year the quality of the training of the horses at each level of the dressage scale will be judged by Sue Kolstead from Kentucky. Kolstead has achieved her “S” status as a dressage judge which is the highest rating given by the USEF (United States Equestrian Federation), the governing body of all national and international equestrian disciplines in the United States. The Borderland dressage show is recognized by the USEF.

Not only do riders enter the show to test their horses’ training, they also compete in an effort to qualify for the Regional National Dressage Championships, which will be held this year in October at the Lexington, Va. Horse Park. For the Sept. 14-15 dressage show at FENCE, spectators are welcome for free and seating is available. For directions to FENCE use www.FENCE.org or call 828859-9021. - article submitted

Dancers complete dance camps A group of 25 young dancers have completed summer dance camps at The Dancer’s Extension in Saluda. Two separate weeks of camps were held. Preschool ages attended the first week, with elementary ages attending the second week. Each week, students learned basic dance positions and steps, were introduced to famous people and places in dance history, made crafts related to dance activities and created their own dance stories. The preschool camp’s story was entitled “Fly Over the Rainbow,” with characters such as princesses, butterflies, kittens and the colors of the rainbow. The elementary camp’s story was entitled, “Springtime Fun and Friends,” with characters such as kittens, puppies, swans, fairies and even a butterfly and a crab. Students were instructed on collaborating to write their dance story, improvising the dance steps and creating stage props for their stories.

Graci Moser

where she lives with her mom, Lisa Moser and her little brother, Freedom. Moser wants to work with children as a pediatrician or pediatric surgeon. Both young women have received as much as they have given to FENCE Summer Camp. “Being with kids helps me think in new ways,” O’Brien said. “Needing to talk to parents and other people I don’t know helps me get more confident.” Moser gets great satisfaction from, “Being creative and using my brain power to figure out ways to help the kids excel.” Moser ’s favorite part of FENCE Summer Day Camp was the tie-dying activity because of the unique differences in the dyed items. O’Brien liked teaching different ways to think about the subjects discussed at camp. When asked about working for

the FENCE Summer Day Camp next year, they both exclaimed, “We definitely want to work here next year!” The student intern program at the Polk County Community Foundation provided funds to hire O’Brien and Moser. FENCE Nature Director Tracie Hanson said, “The PCCF has been a tremendous help to FENCE over the years. We are grateful for their support of our programs.” The mission of FENCE is to provide facilities and focus for education, recreation and preservation in nature studies and equestrian activities with the aim of enhancing these endeavors to enrich the quality of life for the community.

Hanna O’Brien

Cover up…

Hanna O’Brien and Graci Moser are typical teenagers except for one big difference… their summer work made a big difference in children’s lives. O’Brien and Moser just completed jobs as camp counselor interns for the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) Summer Day Camp program at FENCE. The FENCE Summer Day Camp program has provided fun for Polk County children for 28plus years, with programs ranging from music to astronomy and horses to art. Student interns have always been a vital part of camp. Current interns started their camp experience as campers themselves. “I remember coming to the art camp and always liked being around little kids. Being outside is a bonus,” O’Brien said. Moser added, “I always looked up to the counselors at FENCE and I wanted to follow their example. I think it is cool to be looked up to as well.” Sixteen year old O’Brien is a rising junior at Polk County High School who lives in Sunny View with her parents, Chris and Dee O’Brien and her brother, Gabe. Her goal for the future is to work with prosthetics and build on current technology to make prosthetics simpler. Moser, also a rising junior at PCHS, is from Mill Spring
