Landrum passes first tax hike in 23 years by John Clayton

Here’s a list of upcoming meetings and events for area nonprofit community and governmental organizations:

The Landrum City Council approved Tuesday night a budget that includes the first tax increase for the city’s property owners in 23 years. A 4-3 vote of the council approved a balanced budget of $1,549,800 and a 1-mil tax increase for property owners for

the 2010-11 fiscal year. The increase will be approximately $4 on a $100,000 residence and $10 on a $250,000 owner-occupied home. The millage rate now stands at 73.9 mils. The last such tax increase occurred in 1987. “This was a tough vote because this is not a time that

you want to raise taxes,” said Landrum Mayor Robert Briggs. “We have to look toward the future, and it was either that (raise the property tax) or start to cut services. “But nobody likes to pass tax increases during these economic times.” (Continued on page 8)

At the present time there is an old logging road that bisects the property, making a connection with the proposed greenway and the rail corridor. The existing trail One of the advantages of this property is the fact that there is an existing trail bed in place. In its current condition this route can be used with no additional grading. Currently the Town of Tryon uses this same route as a right-of-way for the town’s municipal sewer system. This trail is critical to the parks committee’s goal to interconnect two existing parks, Ziglar Field and Woodland Park. The long-term objective is to connect these two parks, plus a third area with nearly two miles of greenway. In order to achieve this project, help is needed from many (Continued on page 6)

Green Creek First Baptist Church "Sweet Hour of Prayer"

Every Thursday evening 7-8:30pm Please call the following phone numbers with your prayer requests! Each call will be handled with utmost concern and confidentiality.

Are you 100% sure if you died today that you would go to Heaven?

You can be sure! Call… 863-2302 863-2319 863-2358 863-2367 863-2390 How to Find New Life in Christ

This is what the Bible tells us: By nature, your heart runs from God and rebels against Him. The Bible calls this "sin." Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Yet God loves you and wants to save you from sin, to offer you a new life of hope. John 10:10 says, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." To give you this gift of salvation, God made a way through His Son, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." You receive this gift by faith alone. Ephesians 2:8-9 says, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Will you receive Jesus Christ right now? 1. Admit your need (I am a sinner). 2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent). 3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave. 4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit (Receive Him as Lord and Savior). If you are choosing right now to receive new life through Jesus Christ, pray this prayer. Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name, Amen This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ. To deepen this relationship you should: 1. Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better. 2. Talk to God in prayer every day. 3. Tell others about your commitment to God. 4. Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a Bible-teaching church. If you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please let us know. We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually.

private landowners. Even if this takes years to achieve, this section of the trail can stand alone as a public greenway for citizens to use on a daily basis. Something special Vaughn Creek along the proposed greenway route is a special waterway. Unlike many streams in the Piedmont, this portion of Vaughn Creek has significant outcroppings of large stones, reminiscent of a mountain stream. This natural area is only minutes from downtown Tryon. Since this property has been owned by the same family for more than four decades, this land has been undisturbed and left natural. This area possesses one of the largest populations of trout lilies in Polk County. Trout llilies are abundant all along the green-

way route. These special plants can be seen along the creek with other wildflowers such as trillium and bloodroot. Community help needed The Tryon Parks Committee is in jeopardy of losing this special piece of property. The Smith family has been especially cooperative in working with the committee. Since 2007 the family has expressed its desire that this land be made into a public greenway. If you can help generate support for this project or can help financially, please contact one of the parks committee members. The Tryon parks committee includes Mark Byington, Hugh Hursey, Ted Hyder, Rita Landrum, Virginia Lisella, Roy Miller, Gretchen Morris, Callie Smith, Viola Suber, John Vining and Wim Woody. Staff members include Joel Burrell, Justin Hembree and Meg Rogers.

Briggs, Don Smith, Billy Inman and Randy Wohnig voted to approve the budget. Jon Matheis, Joyce Whitesides and Jan Horton voted against it. There was no public comment on the increase when time was allotted. The budget also includes a provision for the purchase of a police car pending the outcome of a grant application. “If the grant is approved, we’ll get a new car,” said Landrum City Administrator Steve Wolochowicz. “If we don’t get the grant, we’ll look for a used vehicle.” Wolochowicz said he expects the millage-rate increase to generate $12,000-$15,000 for the city. The accepted $1.55 million budget actually includes a 9.4 decrease in revenue and a 4.76 decrease in expenditures. While the costs of operating the city have continued to rise, Briggs said it has become increas-

ingly difficult for municipalities in South Carolina to raise funds because of a state law recently passed by legislators that limits the amount of tax increases that can be levied by municipalities. S.C. Act 388 limits millage-rate increases to 1 mil per year. “Everything has gone up – insurance, wages – everything,” said Briggs. “Act 388 really ties our hands.” In other action, the council voted unanimously to revise its drug-testing policy on the advice of legal counsel. Under the previous policy, all employees of the city were part of a random drug-testing program. Under the newly adopted policy, only employees of the city’s publicsafety division will be randomly drug tested. Also, Police Chief Bruce Shelnut reported to council that his department has received a $25,560 grant to purchase new SLED (S.C. Law Enforcement Division) reporting software to replace the 10-year-old obsolete software currently being used by the department.

Matthews to lead renewal services at Rutherfordton First Baptist Nationally recognized singer-songwriter Kyle Matthews will lead renewal services at Rutherfordton First Baptist Church Sunday, September 19, through Tuesday, September 21, beginning with the morning worship service at 10:55 a.m. Evening services begin at 7 p.m. each evening. In almost two decades of writing and performing his songs, Matthews - winner of the Christian music’s Dove Award and ASCAP’s Christian Song of the Yera - has emerged as one of Christian music’s most prolific songwriters. Of his more than 60 cuts by major artists of disparate genres, he has penned such songs as “If You Want Me To,” recorded by Ginny Owens, “Everything and Nothing,” recorded by Vince Gill, “One and the Same,” recorded by Cece Winans, “God Forbid,” recorded by Point of Grace and “Been Thru the Water,” which he recorded. Matthews is also recognized as a speaker who blends the Christian message with music. Matthews says that part of his mission is to motivate people to serve others in a way that allows them to meet Christ in “the least of these.” In that endeavor, he has served with the Wherry Project, a transitional housing ministry near Nashville, and he currently serves on the board for Hand Up Africa, a nonprofit organization sending road paving and farming equipment to the people of Uganda. In 2006 his alma mater, Furnam University, awarded him the Richard Furman Baptist Heritage Award recognizing “a graduate who reflects Baptist ideals by thinking critically, living compassionately and making life-changing commitments.” Matthews lives in Greenville, S.C., with his wife and two children.

Letter to the Editor

Pack’s record speaks louder To the Editor: Former commissioner Pack says he’s been attacked with “comments taken out of context, half truths, or complete lies.” The fact is, Mr. Pack, you have a record and examining it is not an attack. You should be judged on your record and not on your words. Mr. Pack said the new board “has a much more elaborate building planned” which results in “additional cost to the taxpayers of Polk County.” The fact is that the new building is not elaborate and can be built for less total cost than the building you envisioned. It is only common sense that a single story building, on land already owned, will cost less than a multi story building with an elevator on purchased property. Mr. Pack said they wanted to build a new DSS building, “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.” Shouldn’t that read, “our last night in office?” Mr. Pack and friends purchased two parcels of real estate for $1.3 million in their last two full meetings as our commissioners. Mr. Pack said, “This site (Park Street) was recommended by the County Manager and staff.” There is nothing on the record to show any recommendation by anyone but Pack and Watson. Denton said, “The new board should make the decision,” and Melton said, “The (Park Street) lot was not big enough.” Owens apparently never expressed an opinion. Mr. Pack said, “Did we pay too much as charged by Walker, McDermott and Gasperson for the property on Park Street? We negotiated to buy the property for $95,000.” According to people who had looked at it, this property had been on the market for an extended period with an asking price of $75,000. The closed session meetings on the Park Street site have now been released and the county was quoted a price of

$115,000. A special deal, no doubt. The seller got $95,000 for a lot he had been asking $75,000 for, so who negotiated well and who paid too much? Mr. Pack said, “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.” What can and can’t be discussed is very clear in the North Carolina statutes and they clearly were not followed. I asked that the minutes of the closed sessions be opened and the first meeting on Sept. 22, 2008 starts off with this item: “There was much discussion over the Jervey Palmer Building and where to house DSS, Senior Center and Mental Health.” The entire closed session on Nov. 17th was a debate on who liked which site and had no contract negotiation. For the purchase of real estate, only contract negotiation can be done in closed session. The whole idea of these statutes is that everything that can be done in open session should be done in open session. The Pack, Owens, Melton and Watson board did it the other way around. Mr. Pack, do not blame others. It is the commissioners who choose to go into a closed session. The presence of the County Manager and the Attorney do not make this alright and minutes that state “much discussion”, released two years later, do not replace discussion in an open session as required by statute. Mr. Pack said, “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 (Continued on page 11)

•Pack's record (continued from page 10)

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.” This is exactly my point! It was revealed at a new board meeting, because they hold their meetings in open session and encourage public comment. You held meetings in closed session and hid everything going on. How did you expect any input? Mr. Pack said, “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. 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.” Contrast this to the Walker, McDermott and Gasperson board. They came in with $1.3 million just spent by the former commissioners and the worst recession since 1930, which cut revenues to the county by a large amount. Did they simply ask the County Manager how much of a tax increase was needed and then pass it? No, they went through the county budget, line by line, and cut expenses by enough to cover the shortfall from other sources plus lowered the tax rate. Mr. Pack said, “Did the four major projects go over budget? Yes.” Of course, he has plenty of

excuses, but four for four? Quite a record! Mr. Pack said, “Did the current Board of Commissioners cut taxes as they claim? Depends on how you view a tax cut. If you view a tax 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!” We’ve seen this one before. Because of the revaluation, the taxes collected went up on real estate and down on cars, trucks, boats, etc. When we add up all county taxes, we got a tax cut. Let’s count all the property, real and personal, that is what we pay taxes on. Mr. Pack said, “I will work to make the county government more efficient and cost effective, thus resulting in lowering your taxes.”


This is not what the record shows. Mr. Pack has always taken the easy path and raised taxes. He talks tax cut, but his record shows only tax increases. Mr. Pack said, “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.” That is what we all want, an open government who doesn’t hide behind closed doors. I feel that my rights were trampled when you did back room deals and wasted my tax money. I just love the way Mr. Pack says what people want to hear and then does exactly the opposite. You have a record Mr. Pack and it is of back room deals, tax increases and over budget projects. – Jerry Hardvall

According to the Alzheimer’s sive clinical assessments; provide Association, Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys a person’s memory and ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate and carry out daily activities. As Alzheimer’s progresses, individuals may also experience changes in personality and behavior, such as anxiety, suspiciousness or agitation, as well as delusions or hallucinations. “As the disease progresses, behavioral problems are common,” explains Dr. Belynda Veser, psychiatrist with the St. Luke’s Hospital Center of Behavioral Medicine. “Alzheimer’s patients can become easily agitated and have difficulty with both long and short-term memory, have problems with judgment and begin to have difficulty with such basic daily activities as dressing, eating, grooming and using the bathroom.

Geriatric psychiatrists also can help family members cope with the psychological toll of care giving. It’s comforting to know that families have access to respectful, compassionate mental health care through St. Luke’s Hospital. St. Luke’s Center of Behavioral Medicine is a 10-bed facility that treats a spectrum of disorders including: Alzheimer’s disease, depression, anxiety, adjustment disorder and other early onset dementias. Dr. Robert Ratcliffe and Dr. Veser, both board certified psychiatrists, treat patients of the unit. Becky Brodar, outreach coordinator for St. Luke’s Center of Behavioral Medicine, says that all patients undergo a thorough evaluation, including a psychiatric, medical and psychological assessment. Once diagnosed, patients begin individualized treatment to alleviate those problems that are treatable and to manage those problems that are progressive. In all cases, St. Luke’s works to help patients achieve maximum independence. Patients and their

families also benefit from their extensive referral network, which works to place patients in the most positive and least restrictive longterm setting when needed. Access to this service starts with a telephone call. To find out whether an adult 55 years of age or older is suitable for the program, call 828-894-3525 extension 3333.

Dirty Dancing Festival held at Lake Lure September 17, 18 After more than 20 years, Lake Lure, N.C. - the original film site for much of the iconic movie “Dirty Dancing” – is finally hosting its first annual Dirty Dancing Festival at Lake Lure on September 17 and 18. While raising money for charity, the weekend festival honors the timeless legacy of “Dirty Dancing” to young love, the passion of dance, and the film’s celebration of classic 1950s/1960s soul music. Why now? In 2009, with the passing of Patrick Swayze, Lake Lure was flooded with media requests about the town’s plans to memorialize the film’s leading man. With much encouragement from both fans and the media, the Hickory Nut Gorge Chamber of Commerce in Lake Lure organized a candlelight service in Swayze’s honor that resulted in an attendance of nearly 750 people in the pouring rain. With the overwhelming turnout, the chamber realized fans of “Dirty Dancing” still exist in astounding numbers, and are still looking for way to remember and relive the magic of the film. Thus, the

festival ensued. Tickets have already been sold to attendees in 13 different states and several in the United Kingdom. The State of North Carolina’s Tourism Department declared the Dirty Dancing Festival the anchor event for its 2010 British Media Mission Tour and favorable endorsements have already come from media outlets such as the “Today Show,” “Southern Living Magazine,” and NPR’s “Morning Edition.” Schedule of Events Friday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m.: Lakeside Film Screening at Firefly Cove (Free Admission) Fans will feel like they are in the movie as they watch “Dirty Dancing” against the waterfront site of “the lift,” and on the original location of Johnny’s cabin. The evening includes surprise pre-recorded interviews with “Dirty Dancing” cast members. Picnics, lawn chairs and blankets are welcome, and food and drinks will be available for purchase. No alcohol please. Donations for the Lake Lure Youth Center will be (Continued on page 17)

“We are thrilled to present this 3/10,13, 16 Log Cabin as Smoky Mountain the grand prize of our raffle. It’s a beautiful cabin in the mountains overlooking one of the country’s most spectacular views. Raffle participants can give back while also having the chance to win a beautiful custom log cabin in the Smoky Mountains.” “Some kids wait more than 9 months to be matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister,” stated J. Clarkson, director of development for Big Brothers Big Sisters of WNC. “It takes time to recruit, screen, and train a caring adult to be a “Big” and the funds raised from this raffle will allow us to dedicate

more staff to that effort and still give professional support to the mentoring relationships already in place. In the end, this means more children will have the opportunity to experience the difference that a Big Brother or Big Sister can make.” For more information about electrolux Big Brothers Big Sisters of SaleS & Carolina ServiceS Western North visit the Free Service Checks on All website at www.bbbswnc.org.
