From bagpipes to bongos Community Chorus concert Dec. 11 by Barbara Tilly

The sounds of the nationally recognized City of Greenville Pipes and Drums will fill the Polk County High School auditorium during the Community Chorus Christmas concert on Sunday, Dec. 11 at 3 p.m. Wearing colorful Scottish costumes, the group will present “Highland Cathedral” and “Scotland the Brave.” In another Celtic seasonal selection, Landrum resident Kevin Brode and his Great Highlands bagpipe will be a featured soloist. The Scottish carol “Welcome the Star” combines the full chorus, piano and

bagpipe. Brode has more than a decade of pipe training and has entertained on numerous occasions locally. The chorus will also present a Calypso carol with help from Cindy Gilbert on percussion, a German rendering of “Stille Nacht” and the familiar Ukrainian “Carol of the Bells.” “‘Twas in the Moon of Wintertime,” based on a Huron carol and arranged by chorus director Mark Schweizer, will feature Bob Child on Native American flutes. Child has appeared on many stages in the community with his teachings on the making and playing of Native American wooden flutes. (Continued on page 4)

Polk County has been chosen to receive $2,800 in federal funds to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.

A local board of community members was charged to distribute the funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country. This board will determine how the funds awarded to Polk County will be distributed among the programs run by local service organizations in the area. The local board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds available through this program. Under the terms of the grant

from the National Board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private, voluntary nonprofits or units of government; 2) have an accounting system; 3) practice nondiscrimination; 4) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; and 5) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying organizations are urged to apply. Emergency food and shelter funds for Polk County are administered by Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry. These funds are available to all agencies for assistance with housing, utilities, food, emergency shelter and other crisis emergency needs. Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for emergency food and shelter program funds must contact Carol Newton, executive director, Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry at 134 White Drive, Columbus, N.C. 28722, or by telephone at 828-894-2988.

Sheriff seeks answers in potential animal cruelty case by Samantha Hurst

Polk County Sheriff Donald Hill said his department has not stopped investigating a case in which a Columbus family believes their dog was shot in the mouth with an arrow. “If I can prove this was intentionally done I have no problem going after somebody and putting somebody in jail,” Hill said. The sheriff said many questions have been raised in the case of the Lupo family’s dog, Baron, with few answers. According to a follow up report, the arrow was lodged in the soft tissue of the dog’s cheek, not in its throat. The dog also suffered hypothermia, which the state veterinary office said could have also been caused by eating spoiled meat. In canines, eating spoiled meat can cause botulism and in turn hypothermia, Hill said his office was told. The sheriff’s office planned to seek a second vet’s opinion Thursday, Dec. 8. Sheriff’s officers also have questions about the arrow, which was a blunt tip arrow, not the typical broad tip arrow hunters use, and was made out of fiberglass. “The victims I feel so sorry for, I really do. But we don’t have a definite answer as to how this happened,” Hill said. “We just still don’t know.” Sheriff Hill has placed a detective on the incident because, if determined to be intentional, this would be a felony case. So far officers looking into the incident have interviewed neighbors and searched open fields for any further evidence that might lead to a better understanding of how this dog died. The dog was cremated before the sheriff’s office could get any further into the investigation. “We haven’t stopped [inves-

tigating],” Hill said. Hill said animal control officer Michael Herman has been on vacation, but he has put Lt. Michael Capps on the case. Hill said follow-up on such cases must often go to a separate investigating officer because Herman serves as a civilian, not a sworn officer. This also happens because serving a county of 20,000 people as just one animal control officer can become overwhelming, Hill said. BLET or Basic Law Enforcement Training meanwhile does not cover animal cruelty law. So the officers with more enforcement power than Herman do not have the knowledge Herman possesses, Hill said. The sheriff said he also worries about exposing his deputies to potentially rabid animals when they have not been vaccinated. It costs around $1,000 for a single individual to be vaccinated for rabies, he said. Hill said he has approached the county commission several times about hiring an additional officer to assist with animal control. During this past budgeting process, Hill proposed hiring a part-time person, but the request was denied. There were two full-time sworn officers working animal control five years ago, Hill said. But the past sheriff eliminated those positions, leaving Hill with just one control officer. Hill said regardless of manpower, they are doing whatever they can to find out what happened to the Lupo’s dog. Hill even plans to offer a reward to entice someone to come forward with more information. He said the department is also looking into a separate case in which a family that lives near the county line says their dog was shot with a bullet 100 yards from their front door.

*** North Carolina has not seen job growth in the construction industry over the past year, according to an analysis by the Associated General Contractors of America. The organization said North Carolina lost about 4,700 construction jobs between October 2010 and October 2011, a decline of about 3 percent. The state had 174,300 construction jobs in October, down from 179,000 in October 2010. The Raleigh-Cary and Winston-Salem metro areas were the only markets that saw an increase in construction employment. Construction jobs increased 3 percent in Winston-Salem and 1 percent in Raleigh-Cary, while they declined 2 percent in Charlotte. Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist, said a decline in federal investments in infrastructure projects, including highway and transit work, was slowing growth for construction jobs. “If it wasn’t for a slight increase in private sector demand, construction employment would be down in even more communities,” said Simonson. – source: Charlotte Business Journal, 12/7/11

*** Public ice skating and recreational hockey will return to Asheville next year. The Crowne Plaza Resort said it plans to begin construction soon on a 28,000-square-foot building for an ice rink. The rink will be run by the Asheville Hockey League, which already bought the ice rink, boards and refrigeration equipment from the City of Asheville earlier this year. The city has not had a public rink since 2008 when a recreational hockey league was active at the Civic Center with more than 200 players. The new facility will be used for both adult and youth hockey leagues, public skating and figure skating. “The facility is going to be right next to the Asheville Racquet Club on a piece of land right here,” said Angela Beattie, regional director of sales and market at Crowne Plaza Resort. “We’ll be able to host tournaments, and we hope to really boost our business in the offseason, November through March. We’re excited about having something else for people to do here in town.” An agreement between the city and the Asheville Hockey League requires that the rink be available for public skating “on the weekends for at least 60 percent of the time while the ice rink is

*** The Asheville area is seeing a building boom for new apartments. While demand remains low for new single-family houses, construction is under way for more than 800 new apartment units in Buncombe County, and last week Asheville City Council approved a new 312-unit apartment complex. Lesley Groetsch, manager of At The Lofts of Reynolds Village in Woodfin, said she doesn’t see demand easing for apartments

as long as banks maintain their current lending restrictions. She said it’s currently hard to find an apartment in Asheville. Some of the current projects were launched as condos, but the developers switched to apartments when the real estate market declined. Tom Leslie of Leslie & Associates said occupancy has remained high for the 1,300 apartment units his company manages. He said he is seeing more young professionals renting apartments rather than buying a home or condo. – source: www.citizen-times. com, 12/2/11

*** Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh voted last month to prohibit the church pastor from legally marrying anyone until the state allows samesex marriages. The church members said current North Carolina law, and a proposed amendment to the state constitution, discriminate against same-sex couples “by denying them the rights and privileges enjoyed by heterosexual married couples.” A statement issued by the church said, “As a people of faith, affirming the Christian teaching that before God all people are equal, we will no longer participate in this discrimination.” The vote in the church was unanimous and brought tears to the eyes of some who voted in favor of the “statement on marriage ceremonies.” The church’s pastor, Nancy Petty, was among them. Petty, a lesbian, told the congregants this past summer that signing legal marriage certificates to wed heterosexual couples, but not doing the same for homosexual couples had become a burden on her conscience. She said the church’s decision to stop legal marriages was more than she expected. The church now plans to perform marriage ceremonies that will be holy unions reflecting “the spiritual nature of the solemn commitments between two people in a loving relationship.” The pastor will not sign a state certificate for a legal marriage. Pullen Memorial Baptist Church has a history of involve-

*** A new debate over North Carolina’s death penalty law is taking shape. A coalition of religious leaders has begun collecting petitions and resolutions of support to end the law, but Republican lawmakers in the state are voicing their support for the death penalty. The lawmakers repealed the Racial Justice Act, a 2009 law that lets state judges consider statistical evidence when reviewing whether race was a key factor in the prosecution’s decision to seek the death penalty. The religious leaders, who met recently at Martin Street Baptist Church in Raleigh to announce their plan for opposing the law, said removing the death penalty would save the state millions of dollars and eliminate the potential for executions of innocent people. Rev. Frank Dew, pastor of New Creation Community Presbyterian Church in Greensboro, said he knows the religious leaders will face strong resistance in the Republican-controlled General Assembly. “I’m not sure it’s a good time, but I’m not sure there’s ever been a good time,” said Dew. “But it’s the right time.’ North Carolina has not had an execution since 2006 when the death penalty was suspended due to a series of lawsuits challenging the law. Despite the suspension, capital trials have continued since then in the state. In the past four years, there have been 49 capital defendants in the state, and nine were sentenced to death. – source: www.newsobserver. com, 12/3/11

‘Far Wood’ – Uneducated seller or marketing genius? Heading back from Green Creek on a rainy and raw November afternoon, I glimpsed a parked truck filled with split oak on the side of the road with a professionally lettered sign attached to the rear which read, or at least I thought read through the windshield wipers, “FAR WOOD” Below, if a potential customer was interested, was the owner’s name, Darrell, and his number. I couldn’t help noticing the parking lot in which this truck squatted sold tires, or, as I thought they should now be called: “TARS.” Naturally, Darrell’s sign was promptly recorded and uploaded onto my Facebook page and several people had a good laugh and many even knew of him. When I emailed the photo to

Three of four Polk teams down West Henderson Dec. 7 by Samantha Hurst

All but one of four of Polk County’s basketball teams pulled down wins over West Henderson, Wednesday, Dec. 7. Varsity men The varsity men’s team won with a final score of 52-40. Polk put up the most points in each quarter and was up 26-20 going into halftime. Top scorers were Joel Booker with 19, Anthony Carson with 15 and Sam Vining with 11. Varsity women Polk’s varsity women meanwhile jumpstarted the night with a 65-54 win over visiting West Henderson. Things looked hairy for the Lady Wolverines after the first quarter as they were down 18-10. Scoring, however, from Jaime Hrobak, who ended the game with 20 points, and Cassidy Mazzilli with 12, captured a lead 49-47 by the end of the third. Hrobak also ended the night with 16 rebounds and six steals,

followed by Savannah Deaver, who had 10 points and five rebounds. JV Girls JV girls overpowered West Henderson with a commanding 60-19 victory. “It was a team effort with all

players contributing playing time and tremendous hustle,” Coach Michelle Fagan said. High scorers for the JV girls were Sarah Phipps with 18 and Hannah McDowell with 12. All of the Polk junior varsity

and varsity teams face off against the Landrum Cardinals again this Friday, Dec. 9 at Landrum. Coach Brian Taylor could not be reached before press time for final scores and comments on the junior varsity boys game.

Tryon Running Club releases 2012 running event calendar Cyclists and motorcycle enthusiasts have always enjoyed the beautiful roadways through Tryon, Saluda, Columbus and Landrum, but in the last couple of years, it seems runners have taken over. There is a growing grassroots

running community held together by the camaraderie of the Tryon Running Club — a club that members affectionately refer to as “just a Facebook page.” The Tryon (Continued on page 29)

(continued from page 28)

Running Club is a social running group that meets regularly to walk or run scenic routes, as well as train for various regional races. All is free and all ages and abilities are welcome. Running in the Thermal Belt is not a recent phenomenon. In the early 1980s, Tom Foster led the local running movement with the Polk County Striders. Now, almost 20 years later, the Tryon Running Club is continuing that tradition by encouraging friends and neighbors to get outside and get fit. Last month, the Tryon Running Club hosted a meeting with local race directors to compile a 2012 racing event calendar for the Polk and Landrum communities. With the recent increase of running and cycling races, club members felt it was time to coordinate efforts so that all races—many of them charity events — could benefit from attendance by Tryon Running Club members. This is the current roster of events for 2012. Some of these dates may be subject to change. For more information, please visit or find the group on Facebook where members post daily motivational information, training runs and articles.

Q. Is there a way I can tell my

children some personal things outside of my estate plan? A. Yes, we have had clients be very creative in the ways they choose to communicate with their loved ones after they are gone. My own uncle left a very touching and inspirational letter to each of his sons. I have had clients leave detailed letters outlining their wishes for future generations, their values and philosophy of life. Several have even videotaped their messages to children and grandchildren. Many of these messages have been quite well done and much appreciated by the recipients.
