• Proof of a current, negative Coggins test is required at all Western Carolina Hunter Pace & Trail Ride Series Events. This is a state law. A couple of general reminders: Events are usually scheduled two weeks apart to allow the following weekend as a rain date. As weather can be very different just a few miles away here in the foothills, it’s always prudent to check the website the morning of the event.

To the Editor: Half the Polk County Planning Board seats, four of eight positions, will expire 10/31/10 and the vacancies will be appointed by the Board of Commissioners. I have been a member of the board for well over a year and will give you an overview of the board. The Planning Board meets on the second Thursday from 5 p.m. to about 7 p.m. The board reviews subdivision applications, considers requests from the Board of Commissioners, reviews such ordinances as the zoning and subdivision ordinances and considers modifications and updates and reviews new ordinances such as the Mountainside and Ridgeline Protection Ordinance. The seats are appointed for three years. Another activity the Planning Board will be involved with is the County Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). Following the approval of the Polk County Comprehensive Land Use Plan, the Commissioners agreed that the next step is to create a Unified Development Ordinance which will work to combine all land use ordinances into one ordinance for ease of use and application and to

Letter to the Editor

Naming DSS was a rush to judgement To the Editor: As you know recently the Polk County Commissioners on a vote of 3-to-2 rushed to name the new projected DSS building. It was obvious that the two commissioners voting “no” had not even been consulted before the vote. The vote was to name the building after a gentleman that has done many things in his civic involvement over many years. I do not understand why there was this rush to judgement even though the contract for the new building had not even been considered and let. As a matter of

roll into it suggestions from the Comprehensive Land Use Plan passed this year. The UDO committee appointed by the Commissioners, of which I am a member, has begun their multi-year task of creating the ordinance. The UDO will eventually be presented to the Planning Board for review and then will be forwarded to the Board of Commissioners. As you can see, the Planning Board is a crucial element in the effort to define and keep Polk County rural, green and economically vibrant. Please contact the the County Manager’s office for an application (email or hard copy), 828-894-3301 ext 7, and submit by Sept. 31 for consideration by the commissioners during the selection process that will occur in October. Also encourage your friends to apply. The board needs a mix of people with varying backgrounds. As you know, Polk County citizens have made great strides working together towards creating a sustainable rural, green and vibrantly economic County. The next Planning Board meeting will be held Thursday, Sept. 9, in the Womack building. The meetings are open to the public. Please attend and learn more about the Planning Board. – Lisa Krolack fact, the bid package has only now been sent out. Could it be that this was just politics as usual in Polk County? Could is be that this was election year politics to help one of the three sitting commissioners that voted “yes” get re-elected? You judge. The many veterans and civic organizations in Polk County did not even have an opportunity to provide input. Seems like a shame to me. Would it not have been better to get community input and have a committee, consider the suggestions from the community and make recommendations to the commissioners to name the building when it was completed? You judge. – Paul Sutherland

Marjorie A. Westphal Marjorie A. Westphal, a Tryon resident since 1983, passed away September 4, 2010. Born in Peoria, Illinois, the only child of John L. and Annabel Hart Westphal, Marjorie spent most of her life in Springfield, Ill., until she retired to North Carolina, in fulfillment of a long standing dream. As a young woman she had admired the team of Lulu Belle and Scotty, who were regular entertainers on Station WLS, Chicago. Their occasional references to their home state of North Carolina determined Marjorie to plan for retirement many years later somewhere in that state. The place was determined when she found books written by Jean Hersey which described Tryon and fell in love with the town. Marjorie was employed as a bookkeeper/secretary for 25 years in a private investment firm, and for the next 20 years by the state of Illinois at the Board of Governors of State Colleges and Universities as a budget analyst for the newly established Sangamon State University (now known as University of Illinois at Springfield). During her years in Tryon she was active as a volunteer in many civic and educational organizations, as well as in the Christian Science Church, of which she was a lifelong member. Her survivors include numerous cousins and dearly loved friends. Cremation rites were accorded, and no funeral is planned. Memorials may be made to the Christian Science Church, Tryon; Lanier or Polk County libraries; Foothills Humane Society; or the charity of choice.

Big meet nice start for locals by john Clayton

Polk County high WR Alec Philpott (9) goes up for a catch Friday night during the Wolverines’ 35-14 win at R-s Central. PChs improved to 3-0 on the season. (staff photo by Fulton hampton)

Wolverines improve to 3-0 by john Clayton

r-s Central couldn’t make it two in a row. polk County High school stopped the Hilltoppers winning streak in the series at one Friday night with a 35-14 road victory, avenging a loss from 2009. In a sometimes sloppy game that featured nine turnovers between the two teams, pCHs got scores from all three phases of the game – offense, defense and special teams – en route to the victory. The Wolverines have now won seven of eight games against r-s Central. “We need to convert better after we get turnovers, but we were able to score on defense,” said pCHs head coach Bruce ollis. “But we did score on defense, and scoring on defense is

a big deal.” Cody orick capped the scoring with a fourth-quarter 40-yard interception return for a touchdown and giving the unbeaten Wolverines (3-0) a cushion. Coming off a 56-0 victory over Brevard a week earlier, pCHs appeared headed on its way to another blowout after Joel Booker returned the opening kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead. orick added a 17-yard touchdown run in the first quarter as PCHS jumped out 13-0 before r-s Central (1-2) scored. r-s Central quarterback Jacob Kinlaw broke through for the Hilltoppers with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Darrien Watkins, but the Wolverines, following interceptions thrown by Kinlaw

and Andre Overholt, answered with a score before the half. tyler ridings’ pick off of a Kinlaw pass gave PCHS possession at its own 37. Four plays later, Overholt connected with Ryan Thomas on a 13-yard touchdown pass. Overholt then connected with Booker on the two-point conversion try to put pCHs ahead 21-7. Kinlaw added a 15-yard run in the third-quarter to bring r-s Central to within 21-14, but Overholt answered with an 11yard touchdown run to extend the lead. “We went into our two-minute offense there, and we practice that a lot,” said Ollis. “Our kids never panicked, so I’m very pleased with that. scoring before the half created some momentum.”

Cardinals lay egg at Chesnee by john Clayton

a dominating eagles defense and a series of costly mistakes doomed Landrum Friday night in a 41-0 loss at Chesnee. the Cardinals turned the ball over six times -- three fumbles lost and three interceptions -- and never got its running game going as the eagles held LHs to just 6 yards rushing on 31 attempts after sack yardage and tackles for loss. Cannon, who passed for 135 yards on 12 of 23 passing, was sacked five times and intercepted twice. “We made too many mistakes, and we’re working to correct those mistakes this week,” said LHs head coach russell Mahaffey. the eagles (2-0) scored on six of their first seven possessions and took a commanding 34-0 lead into halftime. Chesnee quarterback Walt Miller connected on 14 of 23 pass attempts for 225 yards and four touchdowns, including two each to receivers taylor Wade and DaJohn rowland. running back grant Jones also scored on runs of 2 and 17 yards in the second quarter. Cole McDowell managed a team-best 61 yards on 12 carries for the Cardinals (1-1). He also had three receptions for 46 yards. Jacob Lindsay had two catches for 38 yards. the tough loss left head coach russell Mahaffey taking the blame. “It was my fault,” Mahaffey said. “I obviously didn’t have the team ready to play and that’s on me. I’m working on that, too.” the Cardinals are back on the road Friday night when they face polk County in their annual border rivalry.

The old cabin that Gresham Callahan first inhabited and the Gosnell family lived in for three generations fell into limited use and disrepair for a number of years on Camp Old Indian grounds. Used only as a secret meeting place for the Order of the Arrow, an honor camping group, the cabin was always locked up and shutters nailed shut to prevent vandalism between the infrequent meetings of the secret group. This fact alone created ‘buzz’ among scouts and scoutmasters as they camped in shelters near the mysterious old structure. A number of accidents and tragedies had befallen members of the Gosnell family in the old cabin over the years. Luther, the last family member to live in the cabin, had an epileptic fit near the fireplace, while alone. The spasms caused his legs to go into the fire. He was not found for three days and died of gangrene in the old Greenville General Hospital.

eight o’clock they were frightened by a strange groaning like a man in agony and a banging sound like a man kicking a wall. The sounds were coming from the cabin. The scouts were too excited to get any sleep, so the decision was made to return home. The following Friday, Mr. Stanley kept a close eye on all the workmen to determine if any of them showed any indications that they might have returned to the camp and scared the scouts for a lark. He discovered none. That evening, after all the workmen had gone home, Mr. Stanley waited for twilight. He put on a dark jacket and cap and found his flashlight. Then, he locked the director’s cottage door with the lights still on and quietly slipped out the back door into the darkness. The cabin was about one hundred yards away through woods. He slowly made his way up a familiar path and stopped (Continued on page 20)

Upcoming election already getting interesting To the Editor: As you can tell from recent letters to the editor it is getting to be that time again. The upcoming election is going to be interesting to say the least. In the last few weeks I have been attacked in several letters to the editor. I will say that the majority of the accusations were either comments taken out of context, half truths, or complete lies. It is a shame when we get to this point that we can’t have honest debate on a particular issue where both sides can state their case without resorting to distorting the facts or out and out lying. The facts are as follows and can be verified. I have not made any public comments about the new DSS Building up to this point. Nor have I asked anyone to speak on my behalf. The real issue is a difference of opinion between what the prior Board of Commissioners had planned for the new DSS and Mental Health building and what the current Board of Commissioners see as the appropriate plan. This difference of opinion is not just based on location but also on the amount to spend for project. The new Board of Commissioners has a much more elaborate building planned than what the prior board had envisioned. The change of plans by the new board regarding location and building type has caused delays and additional cost to the taxpayers of Polk County. Do we need a new DSS Building? Of course we do, and we started the process almost six years ago when I was a commissioner. But, we could not get a majority to approve anything until our last year in office and we agreed upon a site on Park Street. This site was recommended by the County Manager and staff.

iccinDD - page 94

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

The County Manager also had a retired Architect that is well qualified and respected throughout the community look at the property and agreed the property would work. Did we pay too much as charged by Walker, McDermott and Gasperson for the property on Park Street? No, we instructed the County Manager to have the property appraised. The property was appraised at $112,500 by Frederick Placak, Jr. who is a state certified appraiser. We negotiated to buy the property for $95,000. To try to imply that it was worth only $22,916 because that was the tax value is ridiculous as it is over two acres of land inside Columbus Town limits. Mr. Hardvall accuses me of being involved in illegal meetings as a commissioner in regards to the purchase of the Park Street property. This is not true. During all of these meetings the County Manager and County Attorney were present. They informed the commissioners of what could and could not be discussed. I am sure the current majority of the Board of Commissioners trusts the County Manager as he is still employed by them. They must have also trusted the County Attorney as they kept him on board until his health prevented him from continuing as County Attorney. At no time was I aware of or made aware by County Staff that there was any issue with being within 300 feet of the park for the Mental Health facility. If so, I would have not voted to purchase property on Park Street as we could not have used this site. I also was not aware of Sheriff Hill’s concerns until after the property was already purchased. As a matter of fact, these two issues were first revealed at one of Commissioner Walker’s, McDermott’s and Gasperson’s meetings after I was no longer a sitting commissioner. So this begs the following questions to be asked. Why did Commis-

(Continued on page 23

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

• Upcoming election (continued from page 22}

sioners Walker, McDermott and Gasperson vote to put the DSS building adjacent to the County Recreation Facility and Middle School knowing it could not include Mental Health? The DSS building is going to cost close to $2 million and it is not going to have any space for Mental Health. What a waste of taxpayer money as the citizens know that building or acquiring two separate facilities and maintaining them is much more expensive than combining them into one. Also why did Commissioners Walker, McDermott and Gasperson not listen to Sheriff Hill’s concern about a public safety issue when they located the new DSS Building adjacent to the Recreation Park and Middle School? Why did Commissioner Denton really vote against the Park Street property? He wanted

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

to buy a much larger piece of property that the county could not afford. There were also some questions as to whether it would be ethical in regards to buying the property Denton wanted. Did we let the current DSS building boiler deteriorate beyond repair? No, it was in poor shape when we came into office. We made repairs to keep the building where it could be used until a new facility was built. But we did not spend $50,000 only expecting it to last two years! That is taken out of context. We expected it to take two years to complete the new building and the repairs would cover us until the new building was complete. Those heat pumps will last much longer. Otherwise every two years people would be replacing their heat pumps at home! Did I vote to raise taxes when I first went into office? Yes, due to the fact the prior Board of Commissioners had signed contracts and started construction on four

major projects (Transfer Station, Library, Middle School and Recreation Facility). They had borrowed the money and planned for the next board to raise taxes to pay the loan payments. The County Manager recommended the amount of tax increase and we approved. It was a bad situation the prior board had left us with. Did the four major projects go over budget? Yes, the prior board, in order to get the bids for the four projects to total what the LGC (Local Government Commission) said the county could borrow, cut necessary items from the projects. These items had to be added back to complete the projects. As one example of many, the Recreation Facility used PARTF (Parks and Recreation Trust Fund) grant money to pay for part of the project. Some of the items required by the grant were left out of the original contract. We had to add those back in order to receive the grant money.

Other items that we had to add back to projects in order to complete included lighting for the ball fields, paving at the transfer station, furniture for the library, erosion control measures, and the list goes on and on. We had a mess on our hands trying to finish four major projects that were poorly planned. Did I try for a tax cut before I left office? Yes, we were taking in too much in revenues and needed to give some back to the citizens. I tried, but could get only two of the three votes needed for the tax cut. We left office with too large of an unreserved fund balance. This enabled the current Board of Commissioners to pay off debt and claim it was their financial skills that allowed this to happen. Did the current Board of Commissioners cut taxes as they claim? Depends on how you view a tax cut. If you view a tax (Continued on page 24)

To the Editor: This quote by Ronald Reagan is the first thing I thought of when I saw Commissioners Gasperson, McDermott and Walker’s lengthy letter in the August 27 TDB justifying their votes to approve the 32 percent over budget funding for grading the proposed DSS Building. In this letter, they challenged a number of points I made in a Letter to the Editor on this subject the prior week. My points were based on three facts, as reported in the Bulletin, about comments made at the August 2 Board of Commissioners Meeting. All the explanations in the world don’t change these facts. The first fact is that Cindy Walker said the original budget was just a “guesstimate,” which the Board should not be bound to work within. The second fact was Renee McDermott’s comment that we have needed a new DSS Building for 20 years and could

• Upcoming election (continued from page 23)

cut as the County receiving less money in tax revenues from real property taxes (taxes on land and buildings) from one year to the next, then definitely not! Just go to the County Finance office and look at the tax revenues from one year to the next and decide for yourself. In closing, you need to look at the letters from Walker, McDermott, Gasperson and Hardvall again and I think you will see them for what they really are. They are propaganda letters trying to make Gasperson look good for re-election and all of his non-Democrat opponents look bad. I stand by my record when I was a County Commissioner several years back. I made the

not delay the project another two months to re-bid it because they previously agreed to a schedule. And the third fact was the County Manager’s report that we reduced the grading cost to being $54,000 over budget (oops... over guesstimate) by limiting the usefulness of the property for future growth by 50 percent. These are facts. They are also positions I do not agree with, especially if you are going to claim to be fiscally responsible. When the Board of Commissioners approves a budget, they do so with the intention of operating within that budget, without knowing at that time what the formal project estimates will be. If a project then comes in over the budgeted estimate, there are two responsible courses of action they can take: re-spec and re-bid the project till it is within the budget, or cut something of lesser importance in the budget to cover the overbudgeted costs of that project. A third option, going over budget by dipping into the county’s rainy day fund (our reserve) or spending money we don’t have, is not a fiscally responsible best decision possible with the facts that we had in front of us at the time. I talked often with the citizens of Polk County either in person or by phone to get their ideas on issues we faced as Commissioners. If any of the issues need further clarification, please call me and I will be happy to discuss them. This applies to any other issue that the county faces and you would like to know my position. My number is in the phone book. I take the job of being a County Commissioner seriously and understand the trust the people place in one they elect to serve. That is right, the commissioners serve the people, not the other way around. If elected I promise to serve the people with honor and respect. I will spend people’s

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

decision. In their letter, Commissioners Gasperson, McDermott and Walker say that “governing officials must ultimately deal in realities, in the real world, in what bids actually show.” In the real world, projects are adjusted to reflect what bids actually show, not just accepted as unavoidable overspending. Accepting overbudget spending is the kind of government thinking that has lead to a U.S. federal deficit of over $13 trillion. This is our money they are spending folks, and I think the County Commissioners should be held accountable for how they vote to spend it. That’s why we have elections. And yes, in response to the question asked by the three Commissioners in their letter, I objected when a previous Board went over budget on the community campus project. But I guess they made the tough decisions in the process because our reserve grew during their term. How is the current Board doing in this regard? Facts are stubborn things! – Don Hofmann money wisely. It is the people’s money and not the county’s money. I will work to make the county government more efficient and cost effective, thus resulting in lowering your taxes. I will strive to lower your taxes enough that someone will not have to tell you that your taxes are lower. You will be able to see the difference when you receive your tax bill from the county. I will also strive to reduce the intrusion into your lives by the county government. We are supposed to be a free people and don’t need the government watching everything that we do. The government should be there to help us when we need, but not overbearing as to trample our rights and freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution. – Tom Pack

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper




Private property vs. ‘charm’ There is such a contrast in views in the Thermal Belt when it comes to community and property. Take the outcry over the construction of a Dollar General store in Tryon. No surprise that a national chain built a non-descript building. There is one element of our local population that believes, and we tend to agree with them, that Tryon would have been well served to have established ordinances which would have required Dollar General to build something with more “charm.” However, defining in legal terms what features a new Tryon building needs to be thought of as “charming” is a daunting task. No doubt, had the new Dollar General been built according to strict “charm” codes, some would nonetheless now be calling the new building “ugly” and the charm code writers “stupid.” Welcome to public life. That said, we still believe a community has a right to collectively express its wishes through elected officials using all applicable laws, even as regards what private citizens do with private properties. A letter writer points out that in Hilton Head, S.C., all fast food restaurants have been forced to blend into the beach town’s ambience. Hilton Head knew what it wanted and its citizens saw their wishes made law and their town made prosperous. Certainly, if we had known what we wanted here, Dollar General would have, very likely, happily complied. In Polk County, citizens have expressed their wishes through at least two surveys and a long public process of “vision” planning. Yet even so, you can hear in the patter of the Republican candidates for the county board the firm notion that no community wishes, no matter how often expressed and written down, will ever trump private property rights if it comes down to it — and it will always come down to it. One can only wish there were some place to meet in the middle, shake hands and preserve Polk County’s particular ambience and charm. — JB

Smoking around children a form of child abuse

Charm is what people look for, not chain stores To the Editor: Although I have not lived in Tryon for 42 years, Tryon still feels like home to me. I do not visit as often as I used to, nor as often as I would like to. But, Tryon still holds and will always hold a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, when growing up there, I did not appreciate it like I do today. My sister told me about the Dollar General store that was being built in Tryon, but until I saw it with my own eyes about two months ago, I had no idea of the “magnitude” of the structure. I envisioned a structure like Landrum’s: small, with a storefront amongst other buildings. But one Saturday, my husband and I were driving from Asheville, and I decided to drive through Tryon on our way back to Charlotte. I had not told my husband about the new structure, and

when he saw it, well...I won’t tell you exactly what he said, but his feelings were pretty clear. The structure, a huge metal box, is particularly atrocious after driving through Tryon, which is a pretty little southern town. After crossing the railroad tracks...Bam. It hits you in the face like a bucket of cold water. I read with interest the Letter to the Editor from Mayor J. Alan Peoples in the Aug. 17, 2010 Bulletin. I totally agree with him, he cannot do it alone; it takes the support and involvement of individuals caring enough to volunteer their time and energy for the betterment of the town. If I lived in Tryon, I would like to be a part of the planning and zoning committee, and I would willingly ask to serve on the Architectural Review Committee, as I currently sit on the homeowner’s board of directors in my community of Charlotte. We are very strict about what can and cannot be built in our (Continued on page 28)

MWF,end 10/9 community, and the Architectural Review Committee has made a difference. If possible, I recommend the planning and zoning board adopt/ implement criteria that all structures submitted for approval must meet an “architecturally similar” look in order to be considered for approval. When I visited Hilton Head three years ago, it seems as though they have that requirement in place because even the “fast food chains” were in charming structures that gave a consistent look to the area. I strongly believe this charm is what individuals look for when considering an area to make their home. I know I do. – Ann (Brock) Brookshire
