Columbus keeps tax rate same, raises water/sewer rates 5% by Leah Justice

Columbus council took a red pen to its proposed budget last week, making cuts to keep the property tax rate the same and reduce the proposed water and sewer rate increase from 20 percent to 5 percent. Council approved the town's budget for fiscal year 2010-11 last Thursday. The town approved the general fund and water/sewer fund budgets separately. The general fund was approved unanimously and the water/sewer fund was ap-

proved by a 3-1 vote, with councilman Michael Gage opposing. Gage said last week that Columbus should have increased rates by 10 percent to give the town more of a cushion. The town had also previously considered a two-cent property tax increase, but made cuts to keep the rate at the current 39 cents per $100 of property value, which includes an increase of approximately $8,000 for the town's (Continued on page 4)

Campobello man shot and killed during fight by Leah Justice



The fatal shooting of a Campobello man last week occurred during a fight, according an incident report released last week by the Spartanburg County, S.C. Sheriff’s Office. Charles William Crissone, 31, of 1045 Mount Lebanon Road, Campobello, died Tuesday after being shot in the stomach outside a residence at 105 Old Highway 357 in Campobello, according to the report. The report states that witnesses at the scene told deputies that Crissone drove by the residence and yelled an obscenity at Cody Lawrence Lockhart,

fire department after the county approved a 7/10 cent increase because of redistricting. Columbus’ cuts will come at a cost to some employees in the public works department. The town decided to cut five hours per week for seven public works employees. Other savings came from cutting $40,000 previously placed in the contingency fund for the water and sewer department and another $10,000 proposed for professional services for a development agreement with Foster Creek. The town kept $5,000 in professional services for Foster Creek in its general fund. The town has met several times this month to discuss the budget proposal. Other cuts considered last week but not approved included eliminating a public works position and either cutting half of the town's health insurance contributions for all employees or making lower contributions to employees' 401K plans. The town was considering

22, of Landrum. Lockhart is the boyfriend of Jennifer Leigh Dillard, 31, of Campobello. Dillard is the mother of Crissone’s eight-month-old child. Witnesses told officers that Crissone got out of his truck and grabbed Lockhart by the neck and the two men began to fight. After Crissone continued to hit Lockhart, Lockhart shot Crissone once with a .38 caliber pistol that he carries with him, according to witnesses. Dillard then called 911, the incident report states. The investigation remains ongoing and no charges have been issued.

larger increases in water and sewer rates to avoid the necessity of continuing to use money from the fund balance to cover losses in the department. The town received a N.C. Local Government Commission letter last year criticizing the use of about $34,000 from the fund balance to supplement the town's enterprise fund last year. The town is expecting another letter this year because it expects to use more than $70,000 from the fund balance to supplement its enterprise fund this year. The town’s general fund budget for next year is $912,813. Its water/sewer fund was shaved last week from the previously proposed $1,136,900 to $1.046,024. The town kept $4,820 in contingency for the water and sewer fund and should have about $25,000 for contingency in its general fund. No employee increases, bonuses, major equipment or major projects were budgeted for next year. The new fiscal year will begin this Thursday.

Gayle Cook has accepted the position of volunteer coordinator, overseeing 200 active volunteers at St. Luke’s Hospital, replacing Connie Kuykendall, who has moved into a new position in human resources created to improve the coordination of benefits for hospital staff. Cook has been a volunteer for more than two years and currently serves as the membership chair of the St. Luke's Auxiliary and as Thursday day chair at the Thrift Shop. In a short time as volunteer, Cook has worked more than 2,500 hours and has contributed greatly by creating an Excel spreadsheet for tracking volunteer hours. This is a part-time position, approximately 20 hours per week, and Cook plans to adjust the days worked each week based on various activities and needs of the department. Her schedule will be posted each week in the volunteer workroom. The phone number for the volunteer department will remain the same at 828-894-0895. “I’m thrilled to have this opportunity at St. Luke’s and in my community. I look forward to representing such dedicated volunteers and to continue the

positive growth Connie brought to our group,” Cook said. “The transition has been seamless,” says Jean Shumway, auxiliary president. “Connie has been a wonderful volunteer coordinator and will definitely be missed. We welcome the change and are happy to have Gayle on board.” Kuykendall, who held the volunteer coordinator position for four years, will now have the opportunity to utilize her skills and training in human resources while addressing a need identified in the recent St. Luke’s employee satisfaction survey. Kuykendall will take on the challenge of coordinating employee benefits and will continue in the role of Workman’s Compensation coordinator, EEOC and safety committee secretary. She also continues to oversee new employee orientation and annual-in-service education requirements.

Hyders still in peach business in Gowensville after more than 70 years by Paul Zimmerman

Anyone who has ever purchased peaches from a grocery store might be forgiven if they think, to paraphrase Gertrude Stein, that a peach, is a peach, is a peach. Yet, walk into the Certified Roadside Market owned by the Hyder Family called, appropriately, “Peach Country,” and you’ll learn the opposite is true. Sun Brite, Cary-Mac, Flaming Fury, O-Henry, Georgia Belle and my absolute favorite peach, Fire Prince, are just a few of the tantalizing names that make up the 32 different varieties of peaches the Hyder family grow along Hwy 11 just outside Go- David, Wayne and Linda Hyder behind the counter at Peach Country.

Ask Wayne Hyder the simple question, “Why do you keep going when you could cash out and sell the land?” and you get an equally simple yet more eloquent response. “Because I love farming peaches”. That love for what he does and his unwavering commitment to the land above financial gain should be reason enough for anyone reading this article to drive down to Peach Country, visit the Hyders and sample a just picked peach.

Columnist Paul Zimmerman loves to cook, enjoys good wine and readily admits to having a self interest in sourcing local area foods.

He plants to periodically feature some of our local farmers who sell directly to the consumer from their farms or at Farmer’s Markets. He encourages you to support them and start to regularly use some of the freshest foods you will ever find.

Creepy crawlies visit Polk libraries Snakes, toads, turtles and even alligators paid a visit to both Polk County Libraries in Columbus and Saluda this week. The visit was part of the libraries’ summer reading promotion, “Make a Splash @ Your Library.” Martha Fiske from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science traveled to the mountains with her cadre of critters to teach kids about species native to North Carolina and their important place in our environment. Children were allowed to touch each of the live animals. The next summer reading program, “Pirates of the Carolinas,” will be held Tuesday, June 29 at 10:30 a.m. in Columbus and Wednesday, June 30 at 10:30 a.m. in Saluda. – article submitted

Wishgrove publishes first CD Tryon resident Rich Nelson’s rock band Wishgrove has published its first CD, “I Lost My Head.” “We are really pleased with the music we’ve written and recorded so far,” Nelson said. “‘I Lost My Head’ is somewhat of a narrative which chronicles a young person as they wake to life and make their way into the world, finding joy and heartbreak.” Nelson said the music has all been arranged to be played live and the band will play at Rogers Park on July 30 and at the Tryon Fine Arts Center on September 18. The drummer in the band is Ken Williams, a real estate agent in Lake Lure, and the bass player, Mark McCullough, manages a company called Foliage Concept. The band practices in Williams’ large garage on 40 acres up Bill’s Creek way. They recorded remotely there, and in Inman, with John Petty of JP Studios.

May I Have This Dance?

Will Knee Pain Keep You From Dancing At Your Daughter’s Wedding? There are some moments in life that should not be missed. If you’re sitting out on the joy of living because of knee or hip pain, it’s time to seek medical help. Board-certified orthopaedic surgeon Brian Rosenberg, MD, and St. Luke’s Hospital have the reputation for getting people back on their feet in record time. With advanced procedures like direct anterior hip replacement and custom-fit knee replacements, you’ll experience less pain, a shorter (but impressive) hospital stay and a quicker recovery. Whether it’s to shag or to waltz, we’ll get you back on your feet, quickly, so you won’t miss the dance of her life.

1x3.5 Canning and preserving workshop adv. 6/28, 29 PCOM-037340 offered at Polk Extension Center July 13

Preserving food cannot be considered new and trendy, but the recent revival fits the modern renaissance of handcrafted food, heirloom agriculture, and using foods in its season. Like baking bread or making a slow-cooked tomato sauce, preserving offers primal satisfactions and practical results. “There’s an incredible surge of interest recently,” said Jimmi Buell, family and consumer science agent with the Polk County Center of N.C. Cooperative Extension Services. “People want to take back their food and their skills from the industrial giants.

In a time of high food prices, job Flute andsafety pianoscares, losses and food home canning is booming. music for parties, “Stacks of locally grown, peakopenings, ripe gallery produce are about to appear at farmers markets, roadside stand other andweddings backyards alland over the county.

The thoughts of home Barbara Tilly canning whether you are a pro or a novice, Flute said Buell, can be overwhelming, 828-859-6568 “but with the help of the Extension Office, we can make the process manageable.” Pam McNeil The Extension PianoOffice is offering a Canning and Preserving 828-859-6049 Made Easy series of two work-


shops. The first in the series of workshops is “Canning Made Easy” and will be held at the Polk County Extension Center on July 13 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Both classes cover the same materials. The cost for the workshop includes the “Ball Blue Book.” The second workshop, “Jam, Jellies, and Pickles,” will be on July 15, also at the Extension Center. Both workshops will be informative two hour classes. Call the Polk County Center of N.C. Cooperative Extension Service at 828-894-8218 to reserve your space for these workshops. – article submitted PCGOV - page 117
