Temporary modular classrooms were winding their way Thursday toward the future campus of Lake Lure Classical Academy, perched on trailers pulled by semis. It is a new day for the Lake Lure community, which has been without a school of any kind, but a challenge for Polk County and other area school-system administrators who want to retain their own students and the funding that comes with them. “There’s been no school in close proximity to this area, so we’re giving families a chance to save on their commutes and have their children close to home,” said LLCA School Director Caroline Upchurch. “The state realized that there’s been a real need in this community for a school that’s more centrally located.

Polk, towns say hotel would boost economy by Leah Justice

Polk County, Columbus, Saluda and Tryon officials say one of the area's most pressing needs to boost the economy is a hotel. “The biggest need in the county to me is accommodations,” said Tryon councilman Doug Arbogast. Officials at a recent joint meeting of county and town officials said I-26 in Columbus

would be the most ideal location for a hotel, but Columbus officials said there is currently no interest in the town from hotel developers. Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson mentioned that several years ago a hotel developer was interested in building in Columbus, but the town could not negotiate a way to bring water and sewer to the hotel.

Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties

Officials at the joint meeting also discussed the possibility of combining the economic development and travel and tourism efforts of the county and its towns. New tourism activities for the area were also mentioned, including more bicycle races, baseball and softball tournaments (Continued on page 6)

• Charter school (continued from page 1)

“And we are a public school – we’re just a new public school in a place that needs one.” Because LLCA is a charter school, it is potentially open to any student who can legally attend school in North Carolina, regardless of home district. It will require no new taxes from Rutherford or neighboring counties such as Polk, or from the town of Lake Lure. However, Polk County Schools Superintendent Bill Miller said the school district could stand to lose a substantial amount of funding if more than a handful of local students opt to attend LLCA. “Altogether, it’s about $8,000 (per student) in funding from the state, the county and federal funds,” Miller said. “So, if 10 of our students make that decision, do the math. That’s $80,000 in funding we lose.” The N.C. State Board of Education voted to place the new charter school at Lake Lure this past March. LLCA will have its

own charter, but will be run by the same foundation that oversees Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy in Mooresboro. Funding for the construction of the school is coming from the Challenge Foundation, a national trust fund set up to help charter schools. Upchurch said the new school gives an option to families in the Lake Lure area, which borders Polk and Rutherford counties but is also easily accessible to populations in McDowell and Henderson counties. Teachers will begin work on Aug. 2 and LLCA’s inaugural classes will report Aug. 18. So far, some 223 students have registered to attend LLCA, and Upchurch said about 43 percent (approximately 96) of those are from Polk County. Polk Central Elementary is the closest county school to Lake Lure. LLCA will offer classes for kindergarten through high school. It will extend a “Core Knowledge” curriculum for students through the eighth grade and a college preparatory curriculum for high school students, which will also

include Latin, logic and rhetoric. “It’s amazing how everything is coming together and falling into place so quickly,” said Upchurch, who visited the construction site last week and toured one of the modular classrooms, which will connect to form LLCA’s first campus.

Miller does not yet anticipate a battle for Polk County’s student population. He said it is unclear how many Polk County students are considering LLCA beyond those who have already registered, but wants them to weigh

2010 census

The current door-to-door phase of the 2010 Census is about 94 percent complete, but census workers are still visiting homes to clarify answers as needed, to doublecheck vacant or nonexistent households, and to resolve questions about address conflicts. Since May 1, about 550,000 census employees have been going door-to-door nationwide to obtain completed census questionnaires from more than 47 million households that failed to return a form by April 16. Some households that mailed in a form have received a visit from a census worker. Reasons include incomplete or conflicting answers or forms received after deadline. State-by-state results must be reported to the president by December 31. Census takers will have an official I.D. badge and many will also carry a black bag marked with the words “U.S. Census Bureau.” Census takers will never ask to come into your home, or ask for bank, credit card, or Social Security numbers.

Simone ranked 29th

Rolling Stone magazine recently ranked Tryon native Nina Simone 29th on its list of the “100 greatest singers of all time. “ The magazine quotes Richard Pryor, who said, “White people had Judy Garland — we had Nina,” and Mary J. Blige, who will play Simone in an upcoming feature film. “I heard her sing in French — I didn’t even know what she was saying, and I started crying,” Blige said. Aretha Franklin was first on the list. Simone was 29th, just after Janis Joplin and before Prince. A memorial project in Tryon for Nina Simone has established a statue and plaza in downtown Tryon, and gives annual scholarships.

‘Sweepstakes’ games debated

The N.C. Senate is debating whether or not to ban computer parlors where people buy phone or internet time to play games with cash prizes, calling it an “end-around the state’s 2006 video poker ban.”

2x5 8/11

North Carolina’s unemployment rate improved in May for the third straight month, this time to 10.3 percent. But the boost came mostly from a gain in government hiring, the N.C. Employment Security Commission reported June 18th. The unemployment rate fell from 10.8 percent in April, following the national trend which saw unemployment fall from 9.9 percent in April to 9.7 percent in May. The number of people working increased by 14,722, and the number on the unemployment rolls decreased by almost 20,800 workers.

Gas prices

Average retail gasoline prices in North Carolina have risen 2.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.60/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has increased 3.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.73/g, according to gasoline price website NorthCarolinaGasPrices.com. Prices this week were 4.0 cents per gallon lower than a year ago, 16.4 cents lower than a month ago.

thing that is missing is a hotel, officials said, as the area could not support large events without enough accommodations. Arbogast said the area is ideal for bicycle races, particularly the grade between Saluda and Tryon. Bike trails would also be needed, officials said, as well as bicycle parking racks for all the downtowns. More bicycle shops in the towns would also do well, officials said. Polk County commissioner Warren Watson brought up a previous advertising effort called the “String of Pearls” on television promoting the towns of Landrum, Tryon and Saluda. Watson said Polk officials shouldn’t forget Landrum, because it is an important component for the area. Elected officials agreed to invite members of the Polk County Economic Development Commission to one of the joint meetings to specifically discuss economic and travel and tourism development in

the decision carefully. “In a small place like Polk County, we don’t have a community orchestra or a YMCA or even a council on mental health,” he said. “We (the school system) are everything. That’s why I believe our community supports us so well. We are recreation through our 33 sports teams. We are the arts. We are music. "We are the cumulative effect of all our clubs and organizations that make us what we are.” While the district has been faced with budget cuts at the state level, Miller said he is determined to remind local students and parents that Polk County Schools have scored consistently among the best in the state. “Our test scores, our performance is one of the highest in the state,” he said. “We’re a small

the county. Officials also discussed jointly dealing with appearance issues throughout the county, such as an effort now to dress up the county’s entrances coming into each town. The group made a list of topics that the county and its towns could work together on in an effort to save money. The items on that list included: • attracting businesses • kudzu eradication • joint purchases - vehicles, sharing equipment • law enforcement • building, permitting, inspections • sign ordinances • economic development/ travel and tourism • recreation • historic preservation • information sharing/grant applications, sharing a grant writer • solid waste and recycling • water County and town officials will hold their second joint meeting on Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. at Columbus Town Hall. The purpose of that meeting will be to discuss combining water sources in the future. school system to have all the arts programs we have in all the schools we have them in. “We need to make sure people understand the quality of the programs we have.” Regardless of how many students from Polk County choose to attend LLCA, Upchurch said those decisions are not an indictment of Polk County Schools. “Oh, I’ve heard fabulous things about the schools here,” she said. “I just heard on the radio about a recycling program at one of the high schools in the area, and I thought how amazing that was that those students and teachers are being proactive about thinking green. I think the schools are doing a phenomenal job. “We’re here because there was a need in this community and an outcry that has been going on in this community for more than 10 years.”

U.S. Senate runoff today Polk polls open 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

A runoff primary election will be held today between U.S. Senate Democratic candidates Elaine Marshall and Cal Cunningham.

All regular Polk County polls will be open today from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Only voters who voted in the Democratic primary in May are eligible to vote in the runoff. In early voting in Polk County, 109 votes had been cast as of late Friday.

Landrum man gets 10 years for fatal hit-and-run A Landrum man was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Friday for fleeing the scene of a 2008 accident in which a pedestrian was killed. Emilio R. Edwards, 34, pled guilty to hit and run with a death. Circuit Judge Mark Hayes sentenced Edwards to 15 years, suspended to 10 years in prison with five years of probation. Edwards was also sentenced to 500 hours of public service after his prison sentence. The fatal hit-and-run occurred on April 15, 2008 at about 8:45 p.m. in Greer. Edwards was driving a Chevrolet van on Hwy.

101 when he hit a man who was standing in the road. Gary Pope, 49, of Greer, died from multiple body trauma. A witness told officials that after the wreck, Edwards pulled into a nearby driveway, lit a cigarette and wiped down the front bumper of the van before driving away.

Inside Back

Just in time: St. Luke’s Health Fair for men only I read an interesting article in The Wall Street Journal recently. It started with a real punch: “When it comes to their health, men are the weaker sex: They don’t get check-ups as often as women, are hospitalized more often with preventable illnesses, and they die younger.” It went on to read that public health officials are trying to change that with a dark, but humorous ad campaign that tackles the serious issue of men in denial of their health risks. The article stated there is no scientific evidence as to why men avoid regular health checks, but it could be attributed to the “macho” culture, a reluctance to undergo prostate and rectal exams, and the fear of actually finding a problem. But as we all know, prevention is the best medicine. Preventive medical tests can find diseases early, when they’re easiest to treat. The best way for men to take care of themselves and, ultimately those they love, is to actively take part in their healthcare through education and simple screenings. To help men on the road to good health, St. Luke’s Hospital is sponsoring the second ‘For Men Only Health Fair.’ Held in June, which is nationally recognized as Men’s Health Month and most known for Father’s Day, this Health Fair is reaching out to all dads, brothers, sons, grandfathers, husbands and boyfriends who sometimes need a reminder to take the extra time to care for themselves.

Caring for our Community by Ken Shull

Men of all ages are invited to attend this free Men’s Health Fair at St. Luke’s Hospital’s Outpatient Services Department tomorrow, Wednesday, June 23, from 5–7 p.m. Physicians, nurses and nursing students from Isothermal Community College-Polk Campus will be on hand to answer your questions, provide information and screenings for prostate health (thanks to urologists Dr. Clyde Gaffney and Dr. John Walton), blood pressure, body mass index and more. There will be information on smoking cessation, colon cancer, back health and stress. In particular for men over age 50, prostate examinations (blood tests and rectal exams) will be available at no charge. Another good benefit for men: food will be served! And there’ll be a few manly door prizes awarded as well. As mentioned earlier, the event is free, but we’d like to know how many men to expect, so you’re advised to call 894-2408. If you plan to take advantage of the prostate screening with a urologist, it’d be a good idea to call for an appointment. Please don’t avoid this opportunity—itFlute can saveand your piano life. I know becausemusic it savedfor John Doe’s life. parties, Really. While he asked that we openings, not usegallery his real name, John came to last year’s event to support St. weddings and other Luke’s outreach efforts and to

take advantage of a free screening during a tough economy. Because of a family history, John was pretty conscientious about regular medical check ups. So he was surprised last year when Dr. Walton felt a hard node on his prostate gland despite the blood test result that was only slightly elevated. The combination was not good-the results indicated a very fast growing cancer that could have taken his life within six months. Thanks to the free PSA screening, John underwent surgery to remove the cancer, along with the prostate. I’m glad to report John is doing well, is cancer free and is adamant that men take charge of their health. To all dads, brothers, sons, grandfathers, husbands and boyfriends, I challenge you to become educated and actively take part in your own health. If not for you, then do it for those you love. Join us as we celebrate Men’s Health Month at St. Luke’s Hospital, where we save lives through excellent care, close to home. St. Luke’s Hospital is a not for profit, acute care hospital affiliated with Carolinas Healthcare System of Charlotte, N.C., for specialized management expertise, experience with developing strong community-based clinical services, and participation in revenue and purchasing contracts. CHS is the largest healthcare system in the Carolinas and the third largest public system in the nation.

Thanks to N.C. Farm Bureau of Columbus’ donation of $500 to Sunny View’s gardens and outdoor science lab, students have been inspired this spring to get their hands in the dirt. Mrs. Chapman’s third grade analyzed the soil to see what nutrients were needed. Mrs. Hathaway’s and Mrs. Huntsinger’s PreK weeded and prepared the beds. Mrs. Maziarka’s kindergarten planted strawberries among the spring bulbs and iris that come up every year. Mrs. Maziarka says, “It is a joy to watch children dig, explore, discover, exclaim, and work together to grow food and beauty. The children enjoyed being out in the sun, wind, and getting their hands in the dirt! Hopefully this will develop into a lifelong respect and joy of gardening.” The students are learning to be good stewards of the earth by planting local, taking care of the soil, eliminating chemicals and celebrating growth. The money from N.C. Farm Bureau has enabled Sunny View to buy soil, amendments, bedding plants and make plans for more projects. Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Phipps and Mrs. Keller are in the planning stages of a butterfly garden. “This donation has opened up ® many exciting possibilities for our LL COPY FOR ACCURACY students,” says Mrs. Maziarka.
