Small Business Saturday, originally created by American Express in 2010, encourages shoppers to spend their money in locally-owned stores versus big box chains.

A Better Deal will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Saturday, but Perry said he’ll stay open later if the shop is busy. (photo by Samantha Hurst)

• St. Luke’s (continued from page 1)

The public is invited to the second ground breaking to celebrate the hospital’s addition of a six-bed patient wing and rehabilitation center. St. Luke’s CEO Ken Shull attended the commissioner meeting and said the hospital has selected BB&T for the loan. The hospital has almost $2 million in philanthropy for the project. Shull said the total project, including all the financing and construction costs, is $5.6 million. Commissioners unanimously approved the lease extension, with commissioner chair Ray Gasperson noting that it seemed so simple on Monday after so much discussion last year. The hospital initially requested that the county deed over the hospital land in order to secure a loan. After some research, the county hired attorney John Crill out of Raleigh, who specializes in hospital financing in order to give advice on what options the county had. Commissioners discovered that in order to dispose of any countyowned property, the county would have to put the property out to bid. The long-term lease ended up being the best option in order for St. Luke’s to secure financing for the expansion. The county’s 2008 lease with St. Luke’s was scheduled to end in 2028. The addendum to the lease approved by commissioners Monday extends the 2028 date to 2111. Shull said the hospital is about to go out for construction and site bids. Last year, he said construc-

tion should take about a year to complete. The project will include a 15,000-square-foot addition with six patient rooms and combining the hospital’s inpatient and outpatient services. St. Luke’s Hospital began in 1928 when the nonprofit corporation was formed. In 1929, a 25-bed hospital opened on Carolina Drive in Tryon, with 230 patients being treated in the first year. The Carolina Drive hospital, now known as the Jervey-Palmer building, was expanded in the 1950s-1960s. The hospital was declared unsafe for any more additions in 1966. In 1968, Polk residents approved a bond to raise $1.5 million for a new hospital. In 1969, with $20,000, the St. Luke’s Auxiliary purchased 40 acres of land off Hwy. 108 in Columbus and donated 14.13 acres to Polk County for the construction of a new hospital. The hospital donated the old hospital land and building (Jervey-Palmer building) to the county, which was used as county offices for approximately 40 years. The county has since vacated the Jervey-Palmer building with purchases of other buildings and the construction of a new department of social services building in Mill Spring. The new hospital cost $3.1 million and in 1972, the 75-bed facility opened. The planned orthopedic expansion will be the first upgrade to the hospital since 1991, when a six-bed intensive care unit was added. Other phases of expansions are planned for the hospital, including a second story for the orthopedic addition.

Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about longevity annuities? I come from a family with long life expectancies and I would like to protect myself from running out of money in my old age. Looking Ahead Dear Looking, If you’re worried about outliving your retirement savings, longevity annuities are definitely an option worth looking into. Longevity annuities are simply deferred annuities that pay you income for life, but only if and when you make it to a certain age. How does it work? You give an insurance company a lump sum of money when you retire (say age 60 or 65), in return for monthly income usually starting at around 80 or 85. The advantage of choosing a longevity annuity over an immediate annuity is that the payouts are much higher. For example, a 65-year-old man who puts $30,000 into a longevity policy could expect to receive around $1,600 per month (that comes to $19,200 per year) starting at age 85. Buying a $30,000 immediate annuity at age 85, he’d get only around $370 per month. Why such a big difference?

Because the insurer has more time to make money off your money before it must begin paying you back. And, they’re betting you won’t live long enough to receive many, if any, checks. National statistics show that a 65-year-old man will live, on average, to 82, and a 65-yearold woman to 85. Another great benefit with a longevity annuity is it gives you the freedom to spend down your nest egg, knowing you’ve locked up an income stream for your later years. But as tantalizing as those big payouts may be, longevity annuities have their drawbacks. For starters, a basic longevity policy offers no escape hatch for you to retrieve your money during the 20 years or so you’re waiting for benefits to start. And your heirs won’t get death benefits if you die before you begin to collect. If that bothers you, you may want to consider a longevity policy that offers flexible features like a death benefit to be paid to your heirs, early payment options, inflation protection and more. The downside, however, is that every extra

feature you add will reduce your monthly benefit. You can use the Brandes Retirement Simulator (see www. brandes.com/institute) to figure out if you should consider a policy. Plug in your current and projected income, expenses and investment strategies. It will show you the possible impact of a longevity product on retirement spending and on your income after age 85. Brandes does not sell longevity insurance. When to buy Most people purchase a longevity annuity at or just prior to the time they retire. To estimate how much coverage you should get, figure out how much of your essential expenses you can cover with Social Security, pensions, and other forms of guaranteed income, and buy longevity coverage for the rest. But don’t overdue it. Experts

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

recommend you use no more than 10 to 15 percent of your assets to purchase a policy, and leave the rest in your portfolio to provide income until it kicks in. Also, when choosing a product, remember that you’re buying income that will not kick in for 20 years or more. So be sure to go with a company with a good reputation and solid financials, which you can check online for free at ambest.com, standardandpoors.com and thestreet.com/insurers. Insurance companies that currently sell longevity annuities are MetLife, Hartford Financial Services, Symetra, New York Life, Northwestern Mutual and MassMutual.

Appalachian Legend Lady Charlotte Ross will present a story-telling session at the Polk County Public Library Community Room on Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. Ross is a “Road Scholar” sponsored by the North Carolina Humanities Council. The program

is open to the public and planned by the Friends of the Polk County Public Library as part of their year-end membership meeting. An entertaining speaker along with music and refreshments makes this a not-to-be-missed event.

Dr. Ross is a freelance folklorist specializing in Appalachian regional culture. She has collected more than 4,000 tales of legends and laughter from these ancient hills that surround us. She is a spellbinding storyteller but she is foremost a teacher. She engages her audience as she conveys history and emotional intensity in stories that are replete with cultural values as they define the special people of Appalachia. “I love legends,” she said. “They are the most underappreciated form of narrative in America and one of the best.” She tells traveling and tall tales, ghost stories, and real or imagined mountain events as she makes every attempt to find the origin of yarns that have been repeated for generations in these hills. Ross is a ninth-generation Appalachian mountaineer, so her interest in folklore began as a child from listening to her grandparents’ stories. It was natural that she continued the family tradition by studying Ap-

palachian regional culture and earning a doctorate specializing in folklore and folk life. She has taught English, folklore, Appalachian studies, history and speech classes at five campuses and has presented more than 4,000 regional programs on Appalachian topics. “I read somewhere that the task of a bard was to define a place and a people, to record history, to transmit cultural values and to entertain using only the human voice and memory. I guess I was meant to be a bard,” Ross said. All members of the Friends of the Polk County Public Library will meet in a short annual meeting at 5 p.m., which will include electing officers for the coming year, voting on by-laws changes and other business. – article submitted by Marian Bryan

Friends, old and new, Amy and Thor I speak often of the great friends I have, both individual and as groups, who support my kids. One group has been at it for four years and I value them beyond words and that group is Gibbs Welding. Among other things they have been instrumental in helping me present my Bark in the Park fundraiser each year, which is no small task. Two ladies in particular are relentless in pulling those big guys around to help my cause. Amy is the mom of one of my favorite two-legged kids, Stan, who anxiously awaits each year to help Uncle Lennie at his fund raiser. A few months ago Amy’s mother passed on and a short while after the sad event, Amy called regarding her mom’s animals. It goes without saying that I was more than willing to assist in any way I could. Her mom had

Thanks for listening.

Adoption Awareness Month

Licensed Insured



The state of North Carolina and Polk County has been celebrating this month annually since 1990 to remind people of the growing number of children in America’s foster care system who are available for adoption and wait for permanent families. Polk County has long believed that all children deserve a permanent home and that is why this county has always actively encouraged people in the community to consider foster care and adoption. Each year, more children enter the system than are adopted. The typical child who has been freed for adoption is at least nine years old, moves three or more times in foster care, may have been separated from siblings, and will wait five years or more to be adopted. There are currently 104,000 children in the United States with no place to call their permanent home. These children don’t have the

kellymoving - page 4

safety net that every child needs and deserves – a family to support them through both good and bad times, to listen and guide and to defend and celebrate. There are currently 38 children in the legal responsibility of Polk County Department of Social Services. Nine of these children are available for adoption and are awaiting their forever family. During National Adoption Awareness Month, let’s celebrate and increase the number of families willing to consider foster care adoption with all the unique joys of creating families through this process. For more information, contact Polk County Department of Social Services at 828-894-2100, NC Kids at 1-877-NCKIDS-1 (1-877625-4371) or the Dave Thomas Foundation at 1-800-ASK-DTFA (1-800-275-3832. – article submitted by Jennifer Pittman

Calmus, around the world in an evening, at TFAC Five young German singers – a lady and four gentlemen – took us on what they called a “Vocal Journey.” This rich and varied program on stage at Tryon Fine Arts Center Nov. 15 was Tryon Concert Association’s second offering and proved to be a winner. The charismatic and disciplined group made more than an obligatory nod to Johann Sebastian Bach whose many years in Leipzig left a legacy that continues to influence the musical life of the city. As graduates of the 800-yearold St. Thomas Church Choir School (founded 1212 in Leipzig), these five singers truly have Bach in their blood. The Bach set was a tight package of representative works – a bright, soft chorale followed by a polyphonic movement from a cantata, then

We all enjoyed the familiar “Sally Gardens” and the comical “Finnegan’s Wake,” both nicely arranged by ensemble members Ludwig Bohme and Sebastian Krause respectively, the latter piece setting the stage for a hairpin turn. A German transcription of French poetry (Baudelaire) set to music in a uniquely American style portends a contrivedsounding concoction, but German jazz musician Harald Banter knew exactly what he was doing. “Abendharmonie” (evening harmony) is a set of three jazz ballads recently commissioned by Calmus. These pieces showcase the group’s personality as well as their boundless versatility. (Continued on page 27)

He served as strength director of the Spartanburg Y.M.C.A., head strength coach for the S.C. state champion girls gymnastic team, USC-Spartanburg baseball team, and Converse college equestrian team. He was lead trainer to L.H. Fields modeling agency, taught four semesters at USCUnion, and was a water safety consultant to the United States Marine Corps.. David was also a regular guest of the Pam Stone radio show.

The remainder of this set took us on an engaging trip through the recent past. Popular melodies by English, German, and American songwriters revealed surprising gifts from within their simple lines through the miracle of good arranging. Sting, Freddie Mercury, Georg Kreisler, and Michael Jackson would be amazed at these transformations. Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” was a humorous finale that isolated the components of an ensemble piece and then demonstrated how they work together. McFerrin’s father, Metropolitan Opera singer Robert McFerrin, presented Tryon Concert Association’s first concert in 1955. Great things certainly have unexpected ways of coming ‘round again.

Letter to the Editor

Kicking a 10-ton sponge To the editor: Whatever the outcome, all Presidents should realize that nearly half of the voters chose the other guy . . . And from the deluge of voter fraud stories now surfacing, it appears that it is not voter ID that is the problem, but software that tallies votes “wrong.” Electronic voting is supposed to leave an auditable paper trail, but I don’t know whether that can be verified when the final tally is duly certified. If the machine is rigged to tally wrong, the paper trail will be wrong, too, won’t it? It is my understanding that dead people have voted routinely for years and that election judges have counted boxes of ballots however they wanted

Jim Wiprut, H.I.S.

to count them. So electronic machines did not change that, since software tampering is apparently easier! I don’t trust anyone to verify or counter the fraud issue stories now surfacing, so I will just accept what we got and learn to live with it, as usual. When I would complain about NASA, my boss told me I was kicking a 10-ton sponge. He said that I could kick it all I wanted, but nothing would change. Read government, and you have what we are faced with now. I like to think the vast majority of the people running things are good Americans trying to do a good job and the ship of state will not sink. That way I sleep better and food goes through my system pretty well without incident. Cheers! - Garland O. Goodwin, Columbus

the choke points at two narrow bridges in reverse curves over the Pacolet River. It is not possible to get a 53-foot semi-trailer truck across those bridges. Opal Sauve’s report on the dedication of the new Interstate 26 prompted my offering some memories here of life with the Highway 176 of the early 40s. As implied by my opening paragraph, everything going from Charleston to Tennessee by highway came through Tryon, the valley and Saluda on U.S. 176. Of course, the rail freight had to go up and down the famous Saluda Grade, where a “helper” engine always stood by to help. So you see, travel between Tryon and Saluda was limited to necessity because of the hazards. We had only three county commissioners in those days, and Baty Hall had to get down here from Saluda to the meetings as best he could. As a railroad man, he might have been tempted to try a handcar, but I believe even the intrepid Mr. Hall would not have wanted to ride one of those little things down the grade! Can you believe that cars could use those parking spaces on Trade Street with interstate traffic going both ways continually all day? There was only one traffic light in town, at the cross streets where Morris has stood in recent years. There were countless oil tanker trucks, dragging their anti-static chains. There were at least as many semi-trailer trucks trying to beat the light and keep their cargo moving. But they had to contend with cars backing out into their path when they left even a tiny opening in the stream of traffic. During peach season there were several packing sheds operating in Our Area. I worked as bookkeeper in the Morrow shed in Landrum the summer when I was 15, and I learned a lot. There were Model A Ford

“peach flats” to transport bushels of peaches from the trees to the shed. There ladies packed the prettiest peaches into lids, while the machine funneled graded peaches into new baskets. The culls went in bulk into waiting trucks. Many of those trucks were derelicts over here from Tennessee, and they headed back home up US 176. They would soon be laboring along west of the Valley in granny low gear, the driver often walking beside because it was awfully hot in the cab of the overheating truck. Everything else was backed up behind them, as there were no passing lanes. There was relief only when the steaming truck was pulled off the road to cool down. The “boys” at McDonalds tell me of stealing watermelons from trucks climbing the mountain slowly. Some would ride on the front of a car and pass them back to the people inside. Oth-

The “boys” at McDonalds tell me of stealing watermelons from trucks climbing the mountain slowly. ers would dismount and put the melons on the side of the road. Coming down the mountain could become a wild ride if brakes failed. My friend Carl Beust and I rode up to Melrose Park on our bikes for the free ride back. His chain came off at Jervey curve, and he had a fine time getting the bike slowed enough to get off it. Today, I still think the best way to get to Saluda is the old dirt road from Pearson’s Falls up though Little Charleston. No grade to speak of, and a nice ride by a babbling brook. Try it sometime — when you are not in a hurry.

Save the stress, shop local instead Black Friday – that day of super discount sales and long lines to match fill my mind with dread. Don’t get me wrong, I like the idea of a great deal as much as anyone but huge crowds of people, the endless driving around and around in circles looking for a parking space,

followed by stores packed with so many people it seems they suck the very oxygen out of the air. Once you find what you came to find, if you were lucky enough that they were still available, it’s off to the check out lines. A seemingly endless line that stretches in and

Forget shopping madness Saluda News & Notations by Bonnie Bardos

“I do not understand how anyone can live without some small place of enchantment to turn to.� ~ Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings By the time you read this column, many of you will be recovering from a big Thanksgiving meal with friends or family; maybe hitting stores on Black Friday for all the over-trumpeted sales. Not me — you won’t catch me near a store on that day. Bargains, forget it. There is nothing I want that badly, nor want to give someone, that is worth it. Who in their right mind wants to get up at 3 a.m. to line up, freezing, at some big box store glaring with fluorescent lights to load a cart to the gills and run over other shoppers: sometimes a fight to the death according to various news reports over the years as the tradition grows. I never have understood this kind of madness. To make it even worse, you have to pay for all that stuff in the long run! Maybe it’s my innate Taurean nature, but I don’t enjoy insane crowds, fighting over plastic things or trying to beat everybody to the prize. Heck, let someone else have it. Seems to me the real gift is sitting around the table, sharing food, love, maybe a football game or two ... just being aware of what matters most. That is indeed “some small place of enchantment to turn to.� Community: Congratulations to Saluda’s very own talented Aaron Burdett, for winning Our State Magazine’s singer/songwriter competition with his song, “Going Home to Carolina.� Encore!

You can have a lovely meal, enjoy live music, art, craft, fresh produce and so much more right here in this small jewel of a mountain town. While visiting around town, stop by to see the new booths run by different vendors filled with antiques, charm and interesting goodies at Joni’s beside Wildflour Bakery. I found an antique wood shoe last, a mystical green glass bead necklace, and other interesting treasures spread throughout the shop when visiting Joni for a bottle or two of wine from her ‘affordable’ section. In town, we’ve got several new shops; well worth a stroll. Get your motorcycle shined and spiffed up for the Polk County Annual Toy Run, Nov. 24, start-
