A lot of love, sweat and heartache by John Clayton


Thinking about getting a cat? The Foothills Humane Society has about 60 of them it needs to find homes for immediately – and they're free right now. The contractors are kicking the kitties out of the Cat House for long-planned renovations. The cats and kittens are "fixed" and have shots and microchips. Call 828-863-4444 for more information.

What began as a class project at Appalachian State for then interior-design student Julia Zellner has grown into a restoration project for the Polk County Recreation Department. Thanks to Zellner’s ideas and the work of volunteers and part-time staff from the recreation department, both Stearns Gym and the Gibson

Park Pool have gotten needed improvements. And Zellner said what has actually been done is only tip of her iceberg of ideas for the county’s facilities. Zellner, who has worked as a lifeguard and part-time employee of the recreation department (Continued on page 3)

since she was a teenager, said her class project included expansive renovations and expansion for Stearns Gym, which was part of the former Stearns High School that opened in 1923. “Oh, I’ve got plenty of ideas,” she said. Of course, her class project did not include the budget realities that are tied to the current renovations. That budget would be almost nil, but Recreation Director Patty Aldred has pieced together enough funds through her overall budget and an independent fund to get the makeover started. The rest was up to Zellner and a dedicated staff. (Continued on page 5)

Stearns gym's supports at courtside, which used to be red, white and pink, have been repainted gray to blend in with the bleachers. (photo by John Clayton)

• A lot of love (continued from page 3)

“There was a lot of love, sweat and heartache put into this,” said part-time staffer Karen Silvers. Zellner, who graduated from Appalachian State in 2006, said knowing there was little money to work with, she scaled her class project back to reality. “I knew there was next to no budget, so there wasn’t much we could do but paint,” she said. “But I guess a little color and care could give some new life.” The first step was to change a color scheme inside Stearns Gym, which had included pink standards at courtside. The supports are still there, but now blend in with the bleachers and walls that have been repainted in different shades of gray instead of red, white and pink. “I do not miss those pink poles,” Aldred said, adding that the new paint scheme makes the gym look and feel bigger, while also reflecting more of the natural light. The project also included reoutfitting the bleachers and walls with plywood, a project that allowed a new scoreboard to be installed and recessed into the wall. “How many gyms like this have a recessed scoreboard?” Aldred asked. Future projects for the gym include a new floor and improved ceiling, which Aldred hopes will

allow volleyball leagues to compete at Stearns and remove dead spots from the court. “People always say they have to learn two ways to dribble at Stearns – one way for the dead spots and then another way for the rest of the court,” Aldred said. The Gibson Park Pool also got a coat of paint, which included the new Polk County Recreation logo – also designed by Zellner. The pool’s bathrooms and snack bar got new coats of paint – a more subtle monochromatic look like the gym. The floor of the pool, which was white with black lines for lanes, was repainted a light blue with the logo in the center in a darker shade of blue. “The main reason we did that was because of the glare,” Zellner said. “I remember working here as a lifeguard and the glare was terrible, so we fixed that.” Zellner said she isn’t through, particularly with Stearns Gym. “I think we can do a lot with the back rooms – opening them up and making them more functional,” Zellner said. Aldred said she is hoping to receive funds from the county for improvements to the floor and ceiling at Stearns Gym, but is also working on a secondary plan if that doesn’t happen. “We do have a general recreation fund, and donations are accepted,” she said.

Hwy. 108 construction project to be done by Aug. 19 By John Clayton

An ongoing road-construction project at the intersection of N.C. Hwy. 108 and Pea Ridge Rd. east of Columbus is expected to be completed Aug. 19. N.C. Department of Transportation crews are working from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. each weekday. They are grading a hill to improve sight distance for drivers entering the highway from Pea Ridge Rd. Work

began on the project this past week. According to the N.C. Department of Transportation, there have been several accidents because the hill impeded the vision of drivers entering the highway. Until the project is finished, motorists are asked to take somewhat lengthy detours around the intersection. The detours: For N.C. 108 East – turn right on A. R. Thompson Rd., travel to

• Second arrest after posting a $20,000 bond. Both men face up to 15 years in prison for the crime. “We’re just glad to get this solved,” said Landrum Police Chief Bruce Shelnut. “But there is still more investigation to be done in this case.” No money from the robbery has been recovered. Shelnut said George, whose pickup was allegedly used in the robbery and was seized by police following a Crimestoppers tip this past Monday, cooperated with police after his arrest and led them to Thompson. According to Shelnut, Thompson had fled to Greensboro, but then returned to Inman where he was arrested. Shelnut said the Landrum Police Department received help from the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Department as well as the S.C. Law Enforsement Division (SLED).

Saluda artist Jim Carson recently returned from Door County, Wisconsin, where he participated in the week long Door County Plein Air Festival. Many artists from Hawaii to Maine to Florida and North Carolina attended. Door County has been named one of the top 10 vacation destinations in the country by “Money Magazine,” so there were numerous painterly sites.

Sell – Then make a political sale John Hood is president of the John Locke Foundation and publisher of CarolinaJournal. com. RALEIGH – Gov. Beverly Perdue remains one of the most unpopular governors in recent North Carolina history. But lately she’s been toying publicly with some ideas that could help boost her political bottom line a bit – while also boosting the state’s fiscal position. As the Associated Press reported over the weekend, Perdue made two interesting statements while signing some 2010 legislation into law. After affixing her signature to the General Assembly’s latest, ill-advised attempt to prohibit video gambling, the governor indicated that she might be willing to rethink the idea of legalizing it during a future legislative session. And after signing a bill promising to clean up corruption around North Carolina’s system of government-owned liquor stores, Perdue said that she was willing to consider the next step: privatizing all or part of the ABC system. I’m not crazy about most proposals for legalizing video gambling, since they assume that the state would impose heavy taxes and intrusive regulations on private casinos – and perhaps even that the state lottery commission would run them. Yikes! But I do think that a reasonable argument in favor of legalization is that some counties and municipalities would welcome viable, taxpaying businesses on real estate that would otherwise stay vacant, run-down, and a net cost to the jurisdiction. Video-

Guest Column by John Hood

gambling enterprises ought to pay the same state and local taxes as other businesses do, which may itself help some wobbly governments get through another recessionary year. Far more interesting, from a fiscal-policy standpoint, would be the prospect of privatizing North Carolina’s liquor stores. Based on the experience of other states, it is likely that proceeds from a sale would be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. It is possible that the inventory, stores, and real estate could be worth even more. We’ll never know unless we take bids in the marketplace. These asset-sale proceeds could be shared among the state and local governments, giving them one-time revenue to use to offset one-time expenditures, pay down debt, or complete capital projects without drawing on general taxes. Furthermore, converting government-owned property into viable, taxpaying businesses has long-term revenue implications – at least partially and probably fully offsetting the lost of annual revenues that localities have lobbied so furiously for so long to prevent. As is now widely recognized, North Carolina state and local governments have a large structural deficit. Our politicians have promised much more in government spending for health care, education, transportation, and other services than can be financed at currently scheduled tax rates. At the state level, the gap is in the billions of dollars.

Add in the local level and the number swells by several hundred million dollars, at least. The current leaders of the North Carolina legislature, state government, and many localities plan to address the structural deficit in 2011 with another round of costly tax increases. The retail sales tax is their favorite one to raise, though the plan may encompass other state and local levies, as well. Does Gov. Perdue agree with this plan? Perhaps ideologically. But surely she has sense enough to know that any governor signing a multi-billion-dollar tax increase months before beginning her reelection campaign is a governor unlikely to succeed in her reelection campaign. Any organization facing the kind of chronic deficits North Carolina state government faces should be searching its balance sheet for low-performing assets to sell off. Households do it all the time. So do businesses and nonprofits. In the case of our state government, obvious candidates for asset sales would include land, office space, and state-owned enterprises such as liquor stores. Yes, some voters might be queasy about North Carolina opening up the liquor business to private vendors. But these voters are unlikely to support Perdue for reelection in any event. On the other hand, swing voters who focus mostly on economic issues might well reward a governor who finds an innovative way to balance government budgets without raising taxes. Perdue ought to consider taking that job.

Manley described her early experiences as examples to encourage others to grow from their history and reach the point of knowing that the past does not determine who we are. In her autobiography, “The Manley Memoirs,” she described experiences at St. Hugh’s School, where, with her two sisters, Manley traveled by train, foot and bus to school every day. The adolescent girls had to sell homemade coconut cakes to schoolmates to defray expenses.

And have you changed your life?” Excerpt from ‘Swan’ ~ Mary Oliver Welcome to August Saluda notes and notations! Lengthening summer brings cicada songs, early morning dew on the leaf, twining morning glories in delighted surprise in fields, whispering grasses in dry wind, a change in the slant of light and sky above: shimmers of fall months ahead.

Some folks had never seen a Shar-pei, so they were educated about all the fine qualities of such a fine critter, and then got the art tour.
