With him are passport clerk Angelique McMurray (left), and Tryon postmaster Tammy Edwards. Edwards said McMurray has been tutored by her mother in Hendersonville, also a passport clerk. She had to pass a test with at least a 90 to be able to handle the process, which includes more than 20 different forms. &dquo;This is a great service for this community,&dquo; Edwards said. &dquo;Lots of people here travel. Now they don&squo;t have to go up the road and wait in lines.&dquo; Passport services will be offered Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and by appointment. (photo by Jeff Byrd)
