Polk County commissioners are reportedly considering a 0.9-acre tract owned by Thermal Belt Outreach in Columbus as a home for a county mental health facility. The Town of Columbus approved rezoning the property to highway commercial last week.

Asked why the rezoning was sought, Outreach officials told Columbus council members that Polk County government is interested in the lot to house Family Preservation Services, one of the county’s mental health providers. Polk County commissioners have not discussed the purchase yet, but they have said recently that depend-

ing on what Columbus did with regard to the property's zoning, the county could have a place to house mental health in order to get all services out of the aging Jervey Palmer building. Columbus officials discussed the rezoning at length last Thursday. The property was zoned residential, but the Polk Wellness Center currently rents a former house on the lot, where it offers similar mental health services. Councilman Michael Gage said he’s not a fan of rezoning and voted against it. He said he wanted Polk County officials to come to a meeting to discuss what their plans are for the property prior to rezoning. Gage said he doesn’t have a problem with the use but is worried about what future use it could have with the new highway commercial zoning if the county ever sold the property. Diana Winkler spoke on behalf of Outreach and said the use will basically be the same as it is now. Outreach purchased the 0.9-acre lot at 94 White Drive in 2007. Except for that 0.9-acre lot, all of Outreach’s property, totaling 11.56 acres, is zoned highway commercial. Outreach received permission from the town prior to the 2007 purchase to use the former house for its Outreach operations and the use was deemed compliant. Columbus Town Manager Jonathan Kanipe said the property needs to be rezoned to highway commercial for its current use under Outreach’s ownership since R-2 does not allow medical facilities.

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Winkler said if Polk County purchases the property, the traffic will stay the same on the road and the client base will be the same as it is currently, but will be done by appointment only. Winkler said the only reason Outreach is selling is because the organization is hurting financially. She said Outreach does not have a contract with the county because the parties were waiting to see whether the property would be rezoned. Polk County has been discussing where to move its mental health facility for some time. One option that has been discussed is for mental health services to move into the new department of social service building currently in the early stages of construction at the recreation complex land in Mill Spring. The new DSS building should be complete next year. Commissioners are attempting to get all services out of the Jervey Palmer building in Tryon, which is aging and costly to maintain. The county has already moved its senior center out of the building after purchasing the former Carolina Classical School off Skyuka Road. Veterans services moved to the former Carolina Classical building when the senior center moved last year. The only other service in the Jervey Palmer building is mental health, which is run by Family Preservation Services. Other mental health providers in Polk County include the Polk Wellness Center, which sees clients in its Hwy. 108 office as well as in the building on Outreach property that the county may be interested in purchasing.

The City of Saluda just got word that it could receive funds from the state to reimburse the city for work done during an ice storm earlier this year. The city declared a state of emergency when a Feb. 5, 2010 ice storm “caused widespread and severe damage, including but not limited to downed trees, power lines, causing road blockages and property damage,” according to the resolution the city issued when it declared a state of emergency. Williams said the city made a claim for $72,000 of employee, equipment costs and other costs associated with the clean-up from the ice storm. The state normally makes reimbursements of up to 75 percent of disaster costs when areas declare a disaster. City officials hadn’t heard from the state regarding any reimbursements for months since the claim was filed. They sent letters to Gov. Beverly Perdue and state representatives regarding the claim. City administrator Erny Williams told the Saluda Board of Commissioners last week that

Saluda heard from the state, which sent a representative to investigate the city's claim. Williams said he believes if the city hadn’t sent letters, Saluda might have fallen through the cracks. The ice storm hit areas of Polk County, but particularly the higher elevations of Saluda where power was out for several days. Last winter was one of the worst winters the area has seen in years.

Polk Wellness Coalition recognizes local worksites that encourage health Two-thirds of North Carolina’s preventable deaths are related to tobacco, nutrition, and physical activity. In North Carolina, 95.9 percent of adults have at least one of these risky behaviors, while 39.1 percent have all three. Tobacco use, poor nutrition, physical inactivity contribute to heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, diabetes, lung disease, osteoporosis, low birth weight, neural tube defects, SIDS, asthma, and joint and back problems. These behaviors lead to nearly 200,000 hospitalizations and 35,000 deaths in North Carolina per year. It makes good business sense for employers to invest in preventive health and wellness for their employees. Obesity, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, and tobacco-related illness costs

N.C. employers an average of $5,000 per employee per year – these issues lead to chronic disease resulting in absenteeism and escalating health care costs for employers. Most preventable diseases result from physical inactivity, poor nutrition (35 percent) or tobacco (37 percent) use. Members of the Polk County Wellness Coalition are working together for a healthy Polk County and want to recognize what some of their health coalition members are doing to make employees’ workday experience healthier. Polk County offers the opportunity for employees to join a health and fitness center with discounted prices to the employee.

Wellness Coalition member Josh King, planner with Isothermal Regional Planning Commission, says that their worksite has organized a wellness committee. They sell fruit juices and water for $.40 which is less than the soda machine ($.75). Low fat/low calorie snacks are available for less than vending machine options. They have removed most of the high calorie snacks from their vending machine. They also formed an agreement to have fresh fruits and vegetables available at all IPDC events. They have a walk leave

policy – if you walk one mile a day during your lunch you get 15 minutes of “walk leave.” They have also completed two “biggest loser’ style weight loss groups. Western Carolina Community Action is offering special programming to all its employees which includes enhances services for those who smoke, have diabetes, and high cholesterol. The Polk County Wellness Coalition would like to hear what your employer is doing to make your work environment a healthier place. Or if you are interested in learning more about changes you can make for a healthier worksite, call Mary Smith, health educator at 828-925-0140 or email her at msmith@rpmhd.org. – article submitted

Letter to the Editor

Ten ideas for improving Polk County economics To the Editor: The following issues were discussed over lunch with Kipp McIntyre who at the time was director of economic development for Polk County. Their order is not of any significance other than, in my opinion, they might be well addressed. Please remember the meeting took place well over a year ago. Plus, the landscape, or if you prefer, the political landscape, was different: 1) county wide police force; 2) county wide water authority; 3) acreage for a government/ county campus. Locate government buildings on one site. Building as required; 4) all government properties returned to the Town of Columbus. Their disposition, their responsibility. It would enhance the economic climate in Columbus when recycled to private enterprise; 5) fulltime county attorney could act in multiple roles as human resource manager, and assistant county manager; 6) Make the historical county courthouse a travel destination. Use the courthouse as a playhouse featuring enactment of trials of yesteryear; 7) restrictive county government activities that can be improved upon resulting in huge savings; 8) strengthen building codes that will effectively address some of the needs for ordinances (buildable lots etc.). Easier to enforce; 9) replace St. Luke’s Hospital with a system of urgent care locations similar to the care centers with available that are successful. 10) Promote policies of growth instead of no growth position. – Frank Giordano

at the age of 12, sean McKaig decided that he wanted to play golf. that decision has brought McKaig to where he is today, a senior at Montreat College in his final season as a collegiate golfer. However, he did not make it this far on his own. “I owe a lot to my mom and dad” said McKaig. “My parents allowed me to play a lot of golf during my younger years, and I fell in love with the game.” golf has been a tradition in the McKaig family for generations. Lloyd McKaig started the family tradition in the sport many years ago as he grew up caddying at tryon Country Club. Lloyd became the club champion at tryon Country Club in 1969. Lloyd and his brother, Franklin, played golf from their childhood all the way through their senior years. “My grandfather Lloyd and my uncle Franklin definitely set the standard by which all McKaigs play golf,” sean said. “I always enjoy hearing the stories of the good golf that they played back then.” sean never had the pleasure of playing with his grandfather because the elder McKaig’s passed away in 1993, but a lot of Lloyd’s characteristics can be seen in sean. “people say that I look like my granddad; I just hope I am making him proud by what I am doing,” said McKaig. sean’s father, rodney McKaig, is still a good golfer today. rodney has held the back-nine

course record with a 6-underpar 30 at tryon Country Club. rodney is a former assistant professional at tryon Country Club, and he played a huge role in making sean into the golfer he is today. “I play golf in honor of my dad because he put a lot of time, money and effort into making me the golfer that I am,” said McKaig. “I have not always made him proud, but I know that he has always loved watching me play over the years.” sean decided to play golf after he saw tiger Woods play golf on tV. “I just knew that I wanted to

play golf like that one day, and I truly believe I became a golfer that day,” he said. McKaig then started playing at tryon Country Club daily. He had a natural talent for the game, but he did not have the temperament for it. “I still struggle with my temper today on the course, but it has improved a lot since my younger days,” McKaig said. “I am not going to say that I don't get mad out there because I really do get frustrated, but I have learned to focus on the next shot, not the one that I just hit.” McKaig became quite a good golfer while in high school, win-

ning a state championship his senior year at raleigh’s grace Christian school. He had big dreams of going to a top Division I college, but without scholarship offers from major college programs, McKaig took his talents to Montreat College, a small NaIa school near Black Mountain, N.C. Coach David pennell was pleased to add McKaig to the roster. McKaig has been a solid performer over the years for pennell. McKaig has received the Cavalier golf award twice and was the first golfer in Montreat College history to be named player of the Week for the appalachian athletic Conference. the Cavaliers are in the midst of their fall season, having just completed the aaC fall tournament in elizabethton, tenn., with a spring season to follow. McKaig, who is the lone senior on a roster composed primarily of freshmen, is hoping to make his senior year at Montreat a memorable one. “I would love to play my best golf this year and to show my family, friends, teammates, and coach what I can do on the golf course,” he said. “I feel as if I have not played up to my potential yet.” Sean McKaig is not the first McKaig to ever play the game of golf, but he’s writing his own chapter in the McKaig golf story.

Justin Kahan in Paul Taylor’s “Company B.” (photo by Tom Caravaglia)

Paul Taylor meets the Andrews Sisters at TFAC October 3

Make ad NO lArgEr than 2x7.5 effective 4/7/08

On Sunday night, October 3, Paul Taylor’s smaller troupe, Taylor 2, will perform three of his best and most beloved works at Tryon Fine Arts Center. Hailed in the New York Times as “something of a miracle” because they are able to convey so much with so few dancers, this six-member company recently joined with Taylor’s larger one on the plaza at Lincoln Center to celebrate Taylor’s 80th birthday. Among the dances that evening was “Company B,” which Taylor 2 will perform in Tryon to music of the Andrews Sisters. “Company B” had its first performance in 1991. It is a Taylor classic that explores the horror of war as the Andrews Sisters sing cheery songs such as “Pennsylvania Polka” and “Tico-Tico.” At the Lincoln Center performance, dancer Madelyn Ho was described as “delicate and soulful in ‘I Can Dream, Can’t I?’” Another well-known Taylor dance being presented October 3 is “Aureole” which was choreographed to the music of Georg Friedrich Handel and first performed in 1962. It contains a difficult solo that Taylor created for himself and is considered a milestone in modern dance; it fused

the classical elements of dancers in white unitards and dresses with movements that expressed a whole new dimension of time and space in dance in the 1960s. They will also perform “Runes” at Tryon Fine Arts Center, a depiction of a secret rite and considered one of his most spellbinding dances. It was created in 1975 to the music of Gerald Busby – a publisher, cook, and philosopher as well as a composer best known for his film score of Robert Altman’s “3 Women.” Busby has lived for years in New York’s storied Chelsea Hotel – “a rest stop for rare individuals” – where he continues to write music as quirky and bohemian as his surroundings. The concert is presented by Rosenberg Bone & Joint and the North Carolina Arts Council. Tickets are available by calling or visiting the box office at 828-859-8322 Tuesday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. www.tryonarts.org. Tryon Fine Arts Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the magic and power of the arts to people of all ages through a variety of experiences. – article submitted

columns X 3.5" TDDA annual 3meeting Sept. 27 The Tryon Downtown Development Association will hold its annual member meeting on Monday, September 27 at the historic Tryon Country Club. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Social time with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar starts at 6:30 p.m. Ample parking is available. The annual meeting begins at 7 p.m. The guest speaker will be Sherry Adams from the N.C. Dept. of Commerce’s Main Street Program, who was the primary economic development support person from N.C. Main Street after Tryon won its Small Town Main Street designation in 2007. Since the town received its designation in 2007, much progress has been made in Tryon in the revitalization arena. In spite of depressed national and local economies, the community has been fortunate to realize increased capital investment in private business, approved appearance of the hardscape and landscape in the central and general business districts and the development of a strong TDDA board of directors.

Join the TDDA on Monday for Sherry Adams’ presentation, brief addresses by TDDA president Crys Armbrust and mayor Alan Peoples and an opportunity to meet TDDA’s new slate of board members and officers. – article submitted

pull them down. I soon began to dread coming home from school because she would collar me and drag me to the trenches to help her do battle with the kudzu. At first, we tried to dig it up. Forget that! The vine sends down roots about every foot, and there is a dense network of roots underground. We dug and pulled great piles of the stuff, but a month later you could not tell that we had done anything to it. I was eleven or twelve years old at the time, and you can believe that I had no enthusiasm whatever for that exercise in futility. We turned the cow onto it but she would not eat any significant amount of it, only the tender new growth. As soon as we left her she would climb the hill up to the yard and eat grass. Jean was pretty picky about her eating-she would rear up on her hind legs to pluck ripe apples from the trees, never eating any that had fallen to the ground. Finally we just turned the kudzu back on itself at the edge of the yard and clipped it off where it started up the trees. It was an almost daily ritual, but necessary to preserve an oasis of grass around the house and to allow the trees to be trees. John Vining recently asked for public input for a cooperative program to eradicate kudzu from our county. Only two or three people showed any interest. I keep a watchful eye for any sprouts on my city lot, since there is plenty of it only 200 feet away. Hearing of my interest in kudzu, Bob Stuedell brought for my birthday a potted kudzu plant which he had dug up at his home on Rippy Hill. My wife put it at the west end of our deck, even watered it for a while. I have utterly neglected it.

Letter to the Editor

Why a ‘split board’ is a better board To the Editor: Polk County government is a hotbed of political activity. We have a five-member board of commissioners which, in recent years, has been controlled by an all-Republican board, a split (32) Republican/Democrat board, and an all-Democrat board. Of the three most recent board configurations, the split board has been, by far, the most productive. In fact, our county manager has said on multiple occasions that he doesn’t think he’ll ever work for a more productive board than the 2007-2008 board of commissioners, consisting of thenDemocrats Tommy Melton and

Letter to the Editor

Polk County health plan To the Editor: The controversy associated with the DSS building approval process, location and function is reminiscent of the many problems encountered by the Obama Health Plan. The details of the Obama Plan to this day are still a mystery to many citizens. Who could believe that there’s a provision in that plan to tax any home or land owner 4 percent of the sale price, but that’s in there. Makes me wonder what we don’t know about the Polk County Health Plan. One of the most similar items

Warren Watson, and Republicans, Harry Denton, Ted Owens and Tom Pack. I believe that the reason our 2007-2008 board was so productive was that no one party had a clear majority. At the time, the three Republicans did not work together consistently, which meant that in order to get anything accomplished, we all had to compromise. And we did! Usually, a good compromise results in a win-win situation. Once we started learning to work together, the partisanship began to fall by the wayside. Our current 2009-2010 board began as the all-Democrat board. Many of the same types of problems that prohibited the allRepublican board from being productive were hampering us as well. Commissioner Melton, and later, I left the Democratic party,

and unfortunately, the poor communication among board members deteriorated even further. When I decided to declare my political independence, by changing to “Unaffiliated” status, I felt a sense of relief, as if a burden had been lifted from my shoulders. Although, I appreciate all that my former Democrat associates had done to help with my first election campaign, I felt that the party leadership was more interested in what was best for the party than what was best for the county. And my only course of action was to cut those ties. What I learned in the process of changing affiliation and in the decision to run as an unaffiliated candidate, was that there are two sets of rules for politicians in North Carolina, and in many other states… one for members

of the two major parties (Democrats and Republicans), and one for everyone else. It begins with the requirement for gathering signatures on a petition in order to qualify to be placed on the ballot, and it continues all the way to the state house where the two major parties that make the rules, have no incentive to change those rules. Think about it; under the current two-party political system, one or the other party will always be in control. Those are the best possible odds. Why would either party open the door to a third or fourth or multiple other political parties and make the rules the same for all candidates, when the two major parties have a monopoly on political control of our state government? It continues at the federal level as well. – Warren Watson

of note between what’s happening locally and what happened nationally is the somewhat covert manner in which the approval was implemented. I believe that when the approval is made by an overwhelming majority behind closed doors, that type of process leads to questions on whether all of the actions are really in the best interest of the community. As the TDB has reported there is a potential huge problem with having this one DSS building serve all of the health needs in one location. I don’t know if that was an oversight by the ruling commissioners, something by design, or a problem they were trying to sweep under the rug in an effort to ramrod the approval through.

There’s also a real question of integrity involved when it appears that two “blue dog” commissioners were left out of the loop while the “three musketeers” ruling majority went about their business of expediting the approval. It’s still not clear to me if Family Preservation Services or the Polk Wellness Center were consulted or had made their position know prior to the approval. And then there’s the question about handling sex offender counseling. It seems to me that planning to have a separate facility for sex offenders should have been addressed prior to the approval of the DSS building. If I haven’t got all the facts exactly right I’m sorry, but in my opinion, the way in which

this situation was handled was quite amateurish and quite confusing, to say the least. What’s just as disturbing is the fact is you have all five members of the same political party in charge of our future heath support system and they can’t even get along enough to jointly address the issues in an openly and professional manner. Maybe it’s time for some of those Tea Party folks to do some house cleaning in the next two elections. Polk County deserves better. We’ve been already shafted by the Obama Heath Plan, we don’t need to get shafted again by the Polk County Health Plan. I would ask all five of the current commissioners to take a step back and do the right thing for the folks. – Karl Kachadoorian
