To the Editor:

This time of year seems to me to be for reflection, past and present. &bsp;

Having moved here eleven years ago from a busy metropolis, on the West Coast, we treasure each day the rhythm of a small town. &bsp;

My husband and I enjoy the Tryon-Columbus area, because of our horses, and the desire to return to a simpler way of life.&bsp; We have been extremely happy here with that decision. but what we had not expected, was the warmth and gracious acceptance of the people who live here. &bsp;

Having raised four children in the 50s and even the 60s, when life everywhere was slower, and moral values were the basis on which to raise them, we are more than pleased to find that they are pervasive here.

Alongside our neighbors and friends, our bossiness here also cherish and promote the small town ambiance. no more so than at Scoops Ice Cream Parlor in Columbus, on the West side of downtown on Highway 108.&bsp; Ken, his Dad, and the girls, always have a smile, and a warm greeting for all who come to enjoy the delicious Hershey Ice Cream. But every bit as important, are their contributions to the community, and their desire to give the children a positive place to hang out.

If you are not aware, be sure to check out, Scoops Holiday Party, 6 to 9 PM on New Years Eve.

They are providing once again a return to old fashioned values, with their prices and their place, for all our children to be safe and happy. &bsp;

Many thanks to them and all.&bsp; Heres to a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
