Complaints pour in over Tryon water bills Service cut off 10 days past due date by Leah Justice

A new water policy giving customers 10 days past their water bill due date before water is cut off has caused complaints from some Tryon customers. Tryon Town Council approved a new

utility bill policy in May that gives customers 10 days past the due date to make the payment or the service could be cut off on the 11th day. The new policy was effective July 1. “Utility meters will be read by the 10th day of each month and bills will be mailed no later than the 20th of the (water Policy continued on page 4)

Construction of the new patient wing at St. Luke’s Hospital is moving along well, according to Ken Shull, St. Luke’s CEO. Grid lines for the ceilings will be installed this week as well as ceramic tiles in public restrooms and full bath in the Activities of Daily Living lab. Project Superintendent Brad Smith with Brassfield & Gorrie general contractors, expects the millwork for natural hardwood cabinetry and aesthetics to begin the first week of September. The stone fireplace in the family waiting area is nearing completion, and a natural stone design on the outside walls of the new wing adds the comforting feel of nature. The design and décor of the 15,000-square-foot addition were intended to incorporate natural surroundings and healing aesthetics. The $5.6 million construction project is the first major addition for the 40-year-old hospital since

Work on both the outside and interior of the wing are going on simultaneously to complete the new wing.

1992. The majority of funding is through local bank financing; St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation committed to raise $2 million. This project is possible, Shull said, because of the need for and

support from the community. In addition to six enlarged private rooms with space for family, the wing will boast a state-of-the-art therapeutic gym for physical and occupational therapy. With electricity and air con-

ditioning now connected, Smith expects construction to continue at a fast pace; current plans are to complete the building project by mid-December. – article submitted by Kathy Woodham

same month,” states the town’s new policy. “Utility customers’ due date shall be the 15th of the following month. Any bills that are not paid or postmarked by the 15th of the following month will be considered past due. A late payment charge as set forth in the Town’s Schedule of Fees will be assessed to all delinquent accounts on the 16th day of each month. When the 15th and or the 16th of any given month falls on any day the town hall is not open, the due date and past due date will be the next day of operation.” Christy Anne Traylor wrote a letter to the editor saying the town is not giving proper notice of Tryon’s regulatory shut off dates. Those who face hardships and need to wait until the first of the month to catch up on their water bill will be disconnected and face $40 in fines. (see letter page 7) “People will miss work, some may even be fired, children will

miss school and basic needs will not be met as a result of this new disconnection system,” Traylor said. “It will do nothing for citizens other than cause undue hardships and the council will find a way I’m sure to waste the revenue earned while their citizens suffer. Folks need a proper notice of disconnection with a date of service interruption clearly stated on such notice. They also need a greater grace period to pay their bills so that they have time to receive a paycheck.” Tryon has recently had 61 customers on the cutoff list. If a customer has a balance due, the bill states the cutoff day is scheduled but does not say whether. Bills in Tryon are due on the 15th, so the service could be discontinued as early as the 26th of the month with a $35 reconnect fee. Tryon water customer Lynn Adams told the Bulletin this week she went to turn on her water Tuesday morning and it wasn’t working. She said she thought maybe the town was doing work

to the line but after calling town hall she found out her water was cut off because her bill was 10 days past due. “It’s too short a period of time,” Adams said of the policy. “This is the water you need for your house – it’s essential to all of us. It’s just not right to do that to people.” Adams said she’s always paid her bill, though she admits it’s been late on previous occasions. “There are a lot of people in bad spots right now with this terrible economic situation,” Adams said. “So many responsible people, who pay their bills, are finding themselves struggling.” Adams said if the core problem with delinquent bills stems from renters who left the area, she believes the town should make property owners responsible for bills. “Don’t make everyone pay, who are usually responsible, for a few people that are not,” Adams said. Tryon has found itself in the red on delinquent water bills with almost $100,000 worth of unpaid bills in recent years. Council decided to strengthen its water policy this year, similar to a policy Columbus enacted a couple of years ago following similar problems. Columbus’ policy is that service is disconnected 11 days past the due date of the 10th of the month. Columbus’ reconnect fee is $75 with a 10 percent late fee charged on the 11th of the month if it’s past due. Last year, Columbus disconnected service to 141 customers for not paying their bills, or an average of 12 customers per month. So far this year, Columbus has cut off 85

customers’ water service. Tryon has a payment plan for people behind on their water bills. Customers can come into town hall and sign up for a plan if they are having trouble paying their bills. Columbus also has a payment plan for those facing hardships. Once arrangements are made, a customer can extend until the 10th of the next month before service is disconnected, but the bill has to be paid in full. Tryon council authorized town manager Joey Davis on Aug. 20 to contract with a company so the town can accept debit and credit cards to make utility payments more customer friendly. Columbus also accepts debit and credit cards over the phone with identifying information. Tryon Mayor Alan Peoples said he understands that people are complaining about the new policy and if there are enough complaints maybe the town should get the word out better. “We’ve gotten more complaints that people didn’t pay their bills and in turn we had $50,000 to $60,000 worth of delinquent water bills,” Peoples said. “I don’t have any magic answers.” Peoples said it is worth looking into at the next council meeting. Tryon Council will meet next on Sept. 17.

Letter to the Editor

Tryon preying on citizens to raise funds

To the editor: On May 21, 2013, as the budget was being pulled together, the town council of Tryon, voted unanimously to shut off water of residents who were only 10 days past due in paying their bill. The general public was notified once in the Tryon Daily Bulletin regarding this decision and on May 22 a sign was placed at the water department counter specifying the changes, useless to those who mail in payments. No notices were mailed to residents who receive water, sewer and garbage collection through the town. Payments are due on the 15th of every month. On the 16th of the month, a $5 late penalty is applied and 10 days after the due date water is shut off without notice. A $35 reconnect fee is charged and the bill for previous month’s usage must be paid in order to reconnect once service is lost. So, those who do not pay by 10 days after the due date are subject to $40 in fines. The fine could be the equivalent of half the cost of the bill itself, more or less. The new town policy went into effect beginning July 2013… Even though the town has a new policy stating when this disconnection is to occur, they do not disclose the date of disconnection with the notice. Residents have previously been given longer leeway to make payments and mailed notices. Unless, you would happen

to read the one notice posted in the Tryon Daily Bulletin or if you hang out at the water department, you would not be made aware of such changes in policy. Why is this failure to properly notify the case? Why would the Town of Tryon state on your bill that disconnection is scheduled but fail to tell you when? Nobody ever gets disconnected from any other utility for being only 10 days late. Good news for the Town of Tryon and their new budget, right? If people are not given proper notice, then there will be more folks who fail to pay within the new 10 day due date (that they knew nothing about) and that will equal more money for the town. Obviously, while most are not aware of the changes, the revenue the Town of Tryon brings in from disconnections will be great. How admirable of you to basically not inform your citizens and do the very least so that you can tout how notice has been provided. Deception at its finest from those we elect to represent us. When asked how the town could impose such hardships on the most disadvantaged financially, a clerk stated Columbus operated under the same policy. I am asking the citizens of Tryon to seek better for their residents. Let the Tryon Council fill their budget gaps elsewhere. Citizens, please refuse your council the right to depend on bullying those facing financial crisis to raise revenue. For those who face hardships on the 15th and need to wait until the 1st of the following month (15

to 16 days from due date) to catch up on the water bill, your service will be disconnected before you have a chance to do so and a $40 fee will be applied. I realize from the vantage point of the Tryon Town Council, mayor and town manager that disconnection is the goal in order to fuel their greed, but please remember there is always the other side.

While you may not be directly affected, the person beside you in church may be or the children who go to school with your kids. I know reports of animals suffering without water would be met by enraged citizens here. I am asking that you share the same passion for your citizens who lose water without proper notice. – Christy Traylor, Tryon

if Christianity is supposed to be such good news, then why does it so often sound like bad news? Christianity is often described as a laundry list of moralistic do’s and dont’s (usually with a heavy emphasis on the dont’s). alongside this list of prescribed behaviors, there is an implicit (sometimes it is explicit) incentive for good behavior (ie. blessings and rewards) or the threat of punishment for bad behavior (perhaps of the eternal kind). in other words, Chris-

tianity is often presented as karma. if you do good things, then God will shower you with good things. if you do bad things, then God will punish you with bad things. While it is true that some of this theology can be found in the Bible (it is called deuteronomistic theology in academic circles), it is not the dominant narrative. and if it were, let’s be honest, that would be pretty bad news. one of my favorite (continued on page 9)

theologians, Bono (who also happens to be an irish Rock Star), explains: “You see, at the center of all religions is the idea of karma. You know, what you put out comes back to you: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. in physical laws — every action is met by an equal or an opposite one. it’s clear to me that karma is at the very heart of the universe. i’m absolutely sure of it. and yet, along comes this idea called grace to upend all that ‘as you reap, so you will sow’ stuff.

Grace defies reason and logic. Love interrupts, if you like, the consequences of your actions, which in my case is very good news indeed, because i’ve done a lot of stupid stuff… i’d be in big trouble if karma was going to finally be my judge. it doesn’t excuse my mistakes, but i’m holding out for grace.” Like, Bono, i know myself well enough to know that karma would be bad news indeed, because in a world full of poverty, greed, violence and prejudice, not a one of us is innocent. So, i’m also holding out for grace.

Grace is the gift of God realized. and when you realize that gift, it changes you. Grace allows you to see beyond your own narcissism; it strengthens you to love not only your neighbor, but also your enemy. Grace humbles you and frees you. Grace is our only hope. and grace is at the heart of Christianity. that’s not only good news for Bono of u2, it is good news for you, too (pun intended). and for me. - Rev.

Legion spaghetti dinner to support Service Animal Project The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 250 is having its annual spaghetti supper on Saturday, Aug. 31 to raise money for the Service Animal Project. This local organization is working with the K9s for Warriors in Florida, which pairs service dogs with veterans in need. These are soldiers who suffer from PTSD or shell shock as it was called after World War I. These dogs are carefully screened and trained to fit their owner’s needs and emotions. To date, five dogs have been accepted from the Foothills Humane Society here to go to Florida; they love our dogs. The first level of training is

Veterans Day parade organizers seek participants “Veterans Day, Nov. 11 is just around the corner and will soon be upon us”, said Bill Hillhouse, chairman of the participant committee of the Patriots Salute to Veterans Association. The Patriots Salute to Veterans Association is organizing the first Veterans Day parade to be held in Columbus and is seeking patriotic organizations and businesses which would like to participate in the parade. “The only requirement we have for participation is that the group or organization be patriotic and dignified,” said Hillhouse. “We want to honor our veterans with proper recognition.” Parade planners have selected the half-mile route and have announced the parade will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. from the staging area near the Food Lion store in Columbus. The parade will proceed east on Mills Street, turn right on Peake Street and

Tryon Little Theater’s Marianne Brown: director and actress by Connie Clark

Read more online at www.tryondailybulletin.com

The Tryon Little Theater (TLT) has lost another of its giants: Marianne Brown, who passed away at the age of 90 in early August. Those who have been around this area for many years had the great pleasure of seeing Marianne perform on stage as well as direct several major productions over the years. At the reception following Marianne’s memorial service Aug. 8, Andy Millard, her longtime financial advisor and himself a performer of note, remembered seeing Marianne on stage September 2008 at the 40th anniversary gala for the Tryon Fine Arts Center. Marianne recreated her role that evening as Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s brilliant “The Importance of Being Earnest” in a scene with Dean Campbell, who was also reprising his 1981 role as Jack Worthing, the gentleman courting Lady B’s daughter Gwendolyn: “Lady Bracknell: I have always been of the opinion that a man who desires to get married should know either everything or nothing. Which do you know? Jack [after some hesitation]: I know nothing, Lady Bracknell. Lady Bracknell: I am pleased to hear it. I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance.” Five years after hearing Marianne deliver that line, Andy says he still remembers the audience howling with laughter at her exquisite deadpan delivery. Ah yes... Marianne Brown as a warm, loving mother and understanding wife in the classy comedy “The Philadelphia Story” in December 1980, then five months later gloriously imperious as Lady Bracknell in “Earnest,” and four years after that in March 1985 a manipulative, vain, duplicitous Mrs. Bramson in the thriller “Night Must Fall.” An actor’s actor, Marianne could put on the character and disappear com-

pletely into this different persona. And as a director, well! Soon after moving to Tryon, she directed her first TLT show, Noel Coward’s delicious “Hay Fever” in December 1978, and one year later she directed Philip Barry’s lavish comedy “Holiday.” In March 1982 she tackled the offbeat and very funny “Petticoat Fever.” Then two years later came what was probably the finest of all – William Gibson’s “The Miracle Worker” about Helen Keller, her teacher Annie Sullivan, and Helen’s emerging from the prison of being deaf and blind since infancy. Another two years and Marianne brought the thoughtful “Mornings at Seven” to the Fine Arts Center stage. Then a break of five years until March 1991 and the superb “The Lion in Winter,” the electrifying play on Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, their three princely sons, the young King of France, and Henry’s mistress. And finally in December 1997, “Da” (Dad in the Irish way of speaking), a memory play moving back and forth in time. Since Marianne had lived in Ireland for four years, this play let her travel back to her own earlier years and (Brown continued on page 15)

Remembering dear friends: Bob, Geneva, Rev. Johnston, Dr. Bromeley and Marlene Lion Bob Stuedell, who sponsored me to become a Columbus Lion, was a good Lion to show me the ropes. Lion Bob did everything by the book, and saw to it that the whole club did, too. He stayed on my case as I progressed, and did his own brand of tail twisting (a Lion tradition), always with a twinkle in his eyes. We have missed him since he resigned some time ago for health reasons. Bob’s father bought the top of “reservoir hill” from my grandfather, T. A. Rippy, after he sold his water works to the Town of Tryon and they did not need the reservoir for the combined system. Bob and Joan thus became my Aunt Mildred’s neighbors when they moved in, and promptly joined her breakfast group at Hardee’s. We also joined the group when I retired here. That is how we all became friends. Bob loved jazz and attended festivals often. I made a front license plate for his van using a sax as the “J” in the word Jazz. I was surprised to see Geneva (Mrs. Fred) Cochran during my visiting rounds at White Oak a week or two before she died. Fran and I would stop by her house sometimes after Fred died, and whether or not we had brought anything, we could not leave empty-handed. My favorite was her incomparable pound cake and Fran was plied with all the figs she could eat. There was always something growing in the planter box by her back door, either flowers or to-

matoes in season. She insisted on sharing from that, too. A generous and kind lady whom I believe enjoyed all of her life . . . and because she wanted to, she did. Rev. James Johnston and his wife, Rosemary, attended the historical association programs faithfully for years. Then Rosemary died, and I saw the Rev. Johnston representing Hospice visiting Fred Cochran shortly before he died. He said that my visit helped him to get acquainted with Fred to better minister to him. The last time I saw Rev. Johnston was at the gym where we were both trying to keep ourselves functional. I had thought it would be good to invite him to say a few words when my time comes to go . . . When I let scraps pile up around my radial saw, they slid one busy day and my feet went out from under me. The concrete block that my head hit opened a gash on my forehead that required stitches, so Dr. Bromeley was called into the ER to do the honors. Some kind of alarm sounded as he began to examine me, so he excused himself by saying there was a fire somewhere and he was the new fire marshal for St. Luke’s. After a long absence he returned and explained that they rections Publishing, Muzak Corporation and Columbia Records. And then the move to Tryon and directing or acting in 15 TLT productions. How fortunate for all of us who had the great privilege of knowing and working with Marianne, and the theatre-going public who savored her work.

had a new fire warning system tied into their computers, and it proclaimed there was a “Fire in Sector B.” Since no one had any idea what “Sector B” was, he had to dispatch people to all corners to investigate. I have no visible scar after the good doctor’s work. Ron Mosseller gets a group of us aviation enthusiasts together for lunch at different local eateries and our conversations somehow wander far from aviation. Marlene Balog was one of us and her background included stints as a stewardess and later as a loadmaster for a cargo airline. While pilots tend to “kick the tires and light the fires,” the loadmaster is responsible for proper positioning of everything put aboard. Little Marlene often had to “get firm” with much bigger male cargo handlers, who quickly learned that she was the boss. She relished great food and had little patience for anything less appealing. My condolences to all the families and friends above, and I must now add Frank “Pick” Brown to them. His wife Rena died recently. I did not know her, but I always enjoyed visiting with Pick when I tuned the piano at our church when he was the custodian. He knew better than to run the vacuum cleaner anywhere near me before I had finished!
