The color green represents the shady side of the cabin, yellows and oranges the sunny side. The red center represents the heart of the cabin. “O.P. Earle’s cafeteria floor also depicts the log cabin design with the use of the floor tiles. School staff, students and the Landrum Quilters have worked together for years on a variety of quilting projects that can be seen throughout the school,” said Jenny McGurk.

Race Director Scarlette Tapp, “A race is more than bib numbers, race times and awards. It is the sum of all the aspirations of those who stand at the starting line. No matter how physically and mentally grueling, an endurance race gives each runner a chance to let their personal challenges fall by the wayside as the miles fade behind them.” Important race information for residents on the course The only part of this course that is closed to traffic is the one Columbusbound lane on Highway 108 from Harmon Field Road to Clarence Rhodes Road at the Lynn Post Office. It will remain closed to traffic from 7 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. At 8 a.m., runners will start on Harmon Field Road and then make their way onto Highway 108, and then right onto Clarence Rhodes Road. This part of the race follows River Road and Carriage Row and back, and is open to traffic. The Tryon Running Club respectfully requests that all who live in the area be mindful of the runners. There will be aid stations and course monitors positioned along the race route to assist runners as needed. If residents need to drive on the course, organizers request that they drive slowly and with extreme caution. Registration is open today from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Harmon Field Cabin and again on Saturday from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 a.m. For questions concerning the race, please contact Scarlette Tapp at 864-680-1770. – article submitted

benefit from the sponsorships and entry fees raised in organizing such an event. Local businesses, athletes and volunteers have reached out to make this first TRC event a true success. Supporting local nonprofits gives sponsors the opportunity to keep their giving dollars in their community, knowing that every dollar donated goes directly to the mission of the beneficiary organization. This year, t h e Tr y o n Running Club will donate race proceeds from the half marathon to Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry. “We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support of our local sponsors and the running community who are helping Outreach outrun poverty,” said Carol Newton, executive director of Thermal Belt Outreach. “The half marathon is in many ways symbolic of our own long commitment to ending poverty in Polk County.” Not only do charity races provide a way to give back locally, they also serve as a life event for many. Most runners come to races with an inspiring story. Even the most seasoned athlete enters the race with a personal history of challenges and triumphs. The half marathon distance of 13.1 miles takes running to a new level — endurance. For many, Saturday will mark the first time that they will ever run 13.1 miles. The many months of training will pay off when those runners cross the finish line. According to

These funds, added to the $10,000 received from the Polk County Community Foundation Unrestricted Funds, will pay for the installation of a new phone system at the North Carolina Homecare office. “The new phone system in North Carolina,” explains Eckert, “will allow our N.C. staff to better coordinate with our S.C. and Hospice House staff, and for the entire community to be better served by a fullyintegrated telephone system.” “Our entire communication network will be interfaced and streamlined, which will put us in a position to better serve families in both states.” – article submitted by Marsha VanHecke

FENCE 2012 traditional holiday barn tour held Nov. 24 The 2012 traditional FENCE Holiday Barn Tour will be held this year on Saturday, Nov. 24, and will feature exhibitions of the equestrian lifestyle of our foothills. The community is invited to come out to the FENCE Horse Show facility covered arena at 10 a.m. on Nov. 24 (the Saturday following Thanksgiving) for a fun-filled and interesting day that will start by viewing performance horses and elegant riders. Exhibitions include barrel racing by Vickie Smith and Skeeter; open jumping by Sara Ketcham and her Vodka Bay; FEI level dressage performance by Whitney Penney Mical and Donnizetti; three ridden mules, in western tack, with Holly Fisher; dressage with Sandra Hyder and English with Amy Gee; driven Friesan pairs with Caroline Whittle-McSwain; and Tot Goodwin and the Green Creek Hounds. This special and informative fox hunting presentation by Green Creek huntsman Tot Goodwin will include an opportunity for attendees to pet these friendly hounds and learn about the job they do (fox hounds are usually somewhat aloof, but Tot’s hounds love attention). There will be a narrative with each exhibition and a short period for the performers to answer questions from the audience. Under cover and next to the performance area there will be plenty of places to sit or stand while viewing the exhibitions. Food will be available for purchase at FENCE from Foothills BBQ. Following the exhibitions, maps and detailed directions will be available for ticket holders to go on a self-guided tour of three nearby and completely different barns. The Derbyshire barn is a new, state of the art boarding facility intended for the use of Derbyshire land owners. Lyter Lyter’s Hulinn Dalur is a charming private barn housing Lyter’s Icelandic horses. Lyter will ride her horses all afternoon for visitors to watch. The Icelandic’s

unique gait the “tolt” is of special interest. The third barn on the tour is Wendell and MaryAnna Haymon’s breeding farm Marydell. Here visitors will see foals galore by the award winning Grand Prix dressage Hanoverian stallion Don Principe.

Moving slow has its benefits, catching things you may have missed ‘...Put down the weight of your aloneness and ease into the conversation. The kettle is singing even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots have left their arrogant aloofness and seen the good in you at last. All the birds and creatures of the world are unutterably themselves. Everything is waiting for you.’ ~ Everything is Waiting for You by David Whyte This wind-swept chill Saluda morning, I finally got a birthday card in the mail for a friend who has a Halloween birthday. I actually felt proud of myself for finally getting it done. I know she’ll forgive me, especially since I promised I was still celebrating her big day, even towards Thanksgiving. And still thankful she’s my friend who will put up with this eccentric behavior of mine. Last night, I spent an hour (maybe longer) online trying to order prescription eyeglasses from a place in California. After entering the prescription four times, I had it memorized — the website did not save my previously entered information. I need glasses to see this, I thought! Excuses, excuses. The slow food movement has nothing on me; I seem to get slower at everything.

Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry holiday program serves community On Nov. 16, Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (Outreach) will kick-off its Holiday Program by distributing 322 grocery cards for Thanksgiving meals to qualified families. “It is hard to think about, but there are children and families in our community that need a compassionate hand during the holiday season or they would go without a holiday meal or a visit from Santa Claus,” said Carol Newton, executive director of Outreach. “We are extremely grateful to our donors, volunteers and the community that supports this effort. Without their help we would simply not be able to continue the program.” Outreach purchases gift cards from a local grocery store with funds donated to the nonprofit agency by community members. The gift cards are distributed by Outreach to families in need of a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal (alcohol and tobacco cannot be purchased with the card). “Eligibility is based on several factors including income – which all Outreach clients meet since they are at or below the poverty level. This holiday season we are seeing a strong increase in the total number of families we serve. Between 20 and 30 families per month are new to Outreach, which provides a barometer of the impact that the economy has made on these families,” said Newton. In addition to providing grocery cards for Thanksgiving and Christmas, Outreach “Angel Trees” will be distributed to families, businesses, churches and others who are interested in purchasing a gift for a needy child or senior citizen. The first name, age, gender, desired gifts and measurements of the “angel” are placed on a tree cut out of wood that is

Kiwanis clean along Route 108 On the morning of Nov. 3, members of the Tryon Kiwanis Club spent two hours picking up litter along Rt. 108 from the roundabout in Columbus to Harmon Field Road in Tryon. Shown above are dedicated workers, in the front row (left to right) Ernie Giannini, Dick Belthoff, Dr. Mar k McCall, J e n n i fe r T h o m p s o n , Ly n n Montgomery, Bill Hague and Blake Smyth. In the back are Denny Rook, Tollie Ross and Lee Cobourn. Trash bags were filled with scraps of political signs and plastic flowers that had been blown about. Of course, there were the usual beverage cans, bottles and cups, cigarette butts, and food wrappers. There are trash cans available all over this county – let’s use them! (photo by Lynn Montgomery)

our home of 15 years with lots of eager anticipation and a handful of reservations: our close friends, my dressage coach and the exquisite menu of Campanile would be hugely missed. The farm beckoned: purchased six years earlier and standing empty, waiting as we continued to put off moving across country “just one more year.” I would be bringing my horses, previously boarded in a much better zip code than the one in which I lived, with me to enjoy a completely different way of life - one much more reminiscent of my childhood: open fields, deep woods, small towns. “And Spinx just started selling their pumpkin spice coffee,” I said, almost to myself, clearing the breakfast dishes from the countertop. What finally gave us the kick in the keister that was needed

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

to pick a date on the calendar to move across country and stick to it was a very routine afternoon, driving back from having worked my horses in Moorpark. I was sitting in early afternoon traffic, as usual, my exit within sight, when the scream of police and fire engines could be heard ahead. I turned on the radio and found the local news station which quickly informed me that a man had entered the Jewish Community Center I normally passed on the way home and had shot five people and killed a mail carrier. The exit would be closed and a detour was given. I had been experienced a lot of violence during my time in California: the riots, earthquakes, bank robberies, helicopters shining their lights through the bedroom windows at night, looking for suspects on rooftops. And I had also experienced the raw beauty of Big Sur and Carmel, 70 degree Januarys and sitting barefoot in the sand on Zuma beach, seeing pods

of dolphins undulating nearby. But on this day, I was hot, I was tired, and I was brokenhearted to witness the aftermath of such senseless violence right in my neighborhood. Enough was enough. “Well, it is kind of chilly,” said Paul, laying his I-pad to the side on the couch. “Let’s go get that coffee!” Climbing, still in our sweats, into the truck, we trundled down the road, got our coffee, exclaimed over the flavor and drove home, pointing out the slant of the autumnal sunlight through the trees nearly at their peak of color. Down the driveway, the fallen leaves from the sweet gums parted like the Red Sea as the tires rolled over gravel and the horses in the field, playful in cooler air, greeted us half way and cantered down the fence line before peeling off in explosions of twists and bucks. Coffee from the gas station, autumn in the country; sometimes the very best gifts are the ones that come in the plain packages.

Savvy Senior Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about body donations? With little money to spare, I’m looking for a cheap way to die and have heard that donating my body to science is free, not to mention it benefits medical research. ~ Old and Poor Dear Old, If you’re looking to eliminate your final farewell expense and help advance medical research, donating your body to science is a great option to consider. Here’s what you should know. Body donations Each year, an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 Americans donate their whole body, after death, to medical facilities throughout the country to be used in medical research projects, anatomy lessons and surgical practice. After using your body, these

Save money by donating body to science facilities will then provide free cremation – which typically costs $600 to $3,000 – and will either bury or scatter your ashes in a local cemetery or return them to your family, usually within a year or two. Here are a few other tidbits you need to know to help you decide on whether whole-body donation is right for you. • Organ donors excluded: Most programs require that you donate your whole body in its entirety. So if you want to be an organ donor, you won’t qualify to be a whole body donor too. You’ll have to choose. • Not all bodies are accepted: If, for example, your body has been badly damaged in a care accident or if you’re morbidly obese, you many not qualify. • Body transporting is covered: Most programs will pay to transport your body to their

facility unless your body must be moved from out of state. • No special requests: Most programs won’t allow you to donate your body for a specific purpose – you give them the body and they decide how to use it. • Funeral services are not covered: Most programs will allow your family to conduct any final services they wish before taking custody of your body, but they won’t pay for it. • Your family won’t be paid: Federal law prohibits buying bodies. What to do If you do decide you want to donate your body, it’s best to make arrangements in advance with a body donation program in your area. Most programs are offered by university-affiliated medical schools. To find one near you, the University of Florida maintains a list of U.S. programs and their contact information at In addition to the medical schools, there are also a number of private organizations like Anatomy Gifts Registry (, BioGift (biogift. org) and Science Care ( that accept whole body donations too. If you don’t have Internet access, you can get help over the phone by calling the National Family Services Desk, which

operates a free body donation referral service during business hours at 800-727-0700. Once you locate a program in your area, call and ask them to mail you an information/registration packet that will explain exactly how their program works. To sign up, you’ll simply need to fill out a couple of forms. But, you can always change your mind by revoking your authorization in writing. After you have made arrangements, you then need to tell your family members so they will know what to do and who to contact after your death. It’s also a good idea to tell your doctor and put your wishes in writing in your advance directives. These are legal documents that include a medical power of attorney and living will that spell out your wishes regarding your end-oflife medical treatment when you can no longer make decisions for yourself. If you don’t have an advance directive, go to or call 800-658-8898 where you can get free state-specific forms with instructions to help you make one. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Earn gift certificate to Mast General Store by completing hikes Complete eight hikes within CMLC challenge Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy (CMLC) is challenging outdoor enthusiasts to support land conservation simply by hiking. The CMLC Hiking Challenge encourages all those who enjoy the beauty of western North Carolina’s mountains to explore and discover the breathtaking scenery of CMLC’s preserved lands, up close and personal. “CMLC works very hard to protect our beautiful mountain lands and facilitate access for people to enjoy them. We believe that by getting out and exploring these places, you will discover why land conservation is so important,” said CMLC executive director Kieran Roe. “You’ll

have a lot of fun doing it, too.” By completing just eight hikes among CMLC’s most spectacular conserved lands, hikers can earn rewards while having fun outdoors. Hikes range from easy to moderate difficulty and are one-quarter mile to 6 miles in length. Those who complete eight hikes will earn a badge of honor: CMLC’s now regionally-famous white squirrel embroidered hiking patch. The white squirrel represents the local wildlife oddity unique to Henderson and Transylvania counties, CMLC’s primary protection areas. Those who complete the Challenge will also earn a $10 gift certificate for free

hiking gear at the Hendersonville location of the Mast General Store. Hikes may be completed at the participant’s own pace and schedule, and there is no deadline to complete the eight hikes. Challenge hikes may be completed individually or as part of monthly guided outings led by CMLC staff and volunteers. The Challenge hikes include scenic locations such as the 360-degree view from the summit of Bearwallow Mountain and the old growth forests of CMLC’s 600-acre Florence Nature Preserve. Also featured in the Challenge are several waterfalls, including Bridal Veil Falls in DuPont State Recreational Forest — a filing

location in the recent movie The Hunger Games. Participants also have the opportunity to hike to Worlds Edge — a nearly 1,600-acre tract protected by CMLC in 2006. The tract was instrumental component in the ultimate creation of Chimney Rock State Park. Version 2.0 is CMLC’s second release of the program following a successful first year that achieved 80 challenge completers and more than 900 hikes taken on conserved lands. This year’s version 2.0 of the Challenge features a new lineup of eight hikes on more lands protected by CMLC.

Foothills Humane Society announces two grant awards The Polk County Community Foundation recently awarded the Foothills Humane Society with two grants. “We are so pleased that our work is being recognized by another local organization,” said FHS Executive Director Selena Coffey. “The Polk County Community Foundation’s support of our work inspires us to do even more to assure that all local animals in need are cared for and find forever homes.” The first grant of $2,200 was awarded for important strategic planning for FHS. The use of a professional facilitator during a retreat environment will assist the board of directors in organizational planning and selecting top initiatives to focus on in the coming year. The second grant of $4,300 supports technological im-

provements for the organization. Most important are the upgrades to the Foothills Humane Society website. Added features will include e-commerce capacity, as well as improvement in online adoptions and donations. Included in the grant is an upgrade in the telephone system and a laptop computer. As noted in the organization’s 2011 annual report, 69 percent of Foothills Humane Society’s operations are funded through grants, donations, bequests and fund-raising efforts. A total of 82 percent of the organization’s expenses went toward the care and placement of the animals in their shelter.

We are profoundly grateful and proud to receive the grant from the Polk County Community Foundation. Local contractors will implement the improvements, keeping the dollars in Polk County – a win-win situation.” The Unrestricted Grant is made up of monies given by benefactors like Bradley, Robertson, Williams, Plumley, Proudfoot, Kofodimus, Book of Memory Fund, Anonymous Fund and the general Unrestricted Fund. This fund has received significant support of recent planned gifts from Bertha Brown, John Lewis, Ramona Craddock, Paul Culberson, Marjorie Deobald, Harry and Dixie Evans, Paula St. George Joyce, Werner Mueller, Edwena Lee Ongar, Lawrence Pexton, Allan Safford, Dorcas R.

Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24 This year’s Small Business Saturday is slated for Nov. 24. Originally created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday that encourages shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local. As an alternative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday spotlights businesses where you live. Locally in Polk County, Columbus, Saluda and Tryon participating independent businesses will vie for more local holiday shoppers by opening early, staying open later, offering discounts and special promotions.

Shoppers are asked to avoid large chain stores on Small Business Saturday, stay away from malls, unless the business is locally owned, buy gifts at boutiques, galleries, gift stores, privately-owned hardware stores, florists, bakeries, wine merchants and more. At a minimum, organizers stress, eat somewhere that is not part of a big chain. For more information, contact the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce at 828-859-6236 or EDTC Director Libbie Johnson at 828-894-2895. – article submitted by Libbie Johnson

TLT receives $13,300 PCCF grant Tryon Little Theater is the recipient of a grant in the amount of $13,300 from the Polk County Community Foundation’s Unrestricted Grant Committee. The grant monies will be used for much needed improvements to TLT’s Sunnydale building, as well as the purchase of National Historic Registry plaques to display outside of the historical building. Susie Kocher, a Sunnydale committee member and writer of the grant, sayidthe improvements will make the location more event-friendly, as well as address some safety issues. “We need a railing for the front and side porch steps to make access easier and safer for the community, and event caterers will love the additions to the kitchen,” said Kocher. “More stainless work and storage surfaces will make their lives simpler, and since we don’t have commercial kitchen status, a warming oven will make the world of difference.” An audio system will enhance meetings and conferences, and the floor will undergo a total restoration. “And now we’ll even have our own 12-foot ladder so we can

That term is, sadly, less used today than it should be and was used more years ago to express the very highest respect for a person. Phil Cooper was a dear friend, not just to me, but to anyone who ever met him. He was gifted in so many and varied ways that he could make a meaningful contribution to almost any pursuit - and he always did. His winning and warm personality made working with him a joy. His work with the Tryon Concert Association for more than two decades was legendary; he enriched the quality of life beyond measure, not only for concert-goers, but for the concert association organization as well.

The memorial service included a period when family members could share “remembrances.” His brother managed to choke out the word “great” to refer to Phil. How right he was!
