Tryon Daily Bulletin's new owners complete purchase Tryon Newsmedia, LLC, an affiliate of Boone Newspapers, Inc., with offices in Tuscaloosa, Ala., and Natchez, Miss., completed its purchase of the Tryon Daily Bulletin, Appointments, a monthly equestrian publication, and related products from the Byrd family on Thursday. Agreement in general for the sale was announced this summer, and final details were worked out in recent weeks. The sale ends more than two decades of operation by the Byrd family. Helen and Jeff Byrd purchased the Tryon Daily Bulletin in 1989 from Seth M. Vining Jr., son of the newspaper’s founder, at the time of Vining’s retirement. “The Bulletin, a unique treasure, unlike any other newspaper anywhere, is a gift to this community from the Vining family. It has been our privilege to keep its traditions alive, a challenge which largely required deftly stepping aside to allow the

TDB’s organic quirkiness to thrive unhindered.” Jeff Byrd said. “The Tryon Daily Bulletin will be even stronger with Boone Newspapers Inc., fine publishers of small market newspapers. The principals, Todd Carpenter and Tim Prince, understand the TDB, this community and this industry at this time. We wish them all success.” Byrd is succeeded as publisher of the Tryon Daily Bulletin by Betty Ramsey, general manager of The Tidewater News in Franklin, Va., which is also owned by Boone Newspapers, Inc. Ramsey, as president and with an ownership interest in Tryon Newsmedia, LLC, will be responsible for the company’s operations, consisting of the Tryon Daily Bulletin, Appointments, a monthly equestrian publication, and the operation’s online products. Majority owners of the newly formed company are Boone Newspapers Inc. (BNI) and BNI’s presi-

porate philosophy: “We seek to produce the highest quality product the economics of the community served can support. And then, by ingenuity and imagination, we strive for a higher quality in an effort to serve and build that community.” Carpenter said he is “deeply appreciative of the confidence Jeff Byrd and his family have placed in us as their successors, and we will work hard to merit that confidence.” Carpenter added: “We are pleased that Betty Ramsey has joined us as president and publisher. Her steady leadership and knowledge of community newspapers will be important to us during the transition and thereafter. We look forward to becoming a part of the community and will work hard to meet our every obligation to readers, customers, employees and all who have a stake in the community.”

dent and chief operating officer, Todd H. Carpenter of Natchez, Miss., Tim Prince of Columbiana, Al., publisher of two BNI-owned Alabama newspapers and group manager, Ramsey and BNI key personnel hold minority ownership. Boone Newspapers owns and manages 38 newspapers in similarsized communities in North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Minnesota, Ohio and Michigan. Operations near Tryon include The Washington (N.C.) Daily News, The RoanokeChowan Herald (Ahoskie, N.C.), The Gates County (N.C.) Index, The Suffolk (Va.) News-Herald and The (Franklin, Va.)

Ray D. Gasperson I am a native and lifelong resident2x10 of our beautiful Western North Carolina 10/01Mountains. My wife Sue and I recently celebrated our 37th eLet-039040 wedding anniversary. We have three adult children. Laura and her husband Kevin Peek live in Green Creek along with our granddaughter Meredith, who attends Polk Central School. Julia and her husband Jared Roddy also live here in Polk County, and our son Corey lives here on our farm in the Ray Gasperson Green Creek community. Our farm is a working farm that produces hay for our own animals and also for sale. We are proud that our farm is enrolled in the Farm Preservation Voluntary Agricultural District. I’m the current vice-chairman of the Polk County Board of Commissioners. I’m also currently serving as a member on the Isothermal Community College Board of Trustees, Polk County Farmland Preservation Board, Isothermal Planning and Development Board, C.E.T.A. Board, and the UDO committee. My education was in the public schools near Asheville, N. C. and the University of North CarolinaAsheville. I majored in political science and served as student body president at UNC-A. I have also served on the church council of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Asheville. The skills that I developed over the past 33 years with my successful small business have served me well since my election as a Polk County commissioner. Currently, I am also a licensed general contractor. My solid work ethic has helped me to devote the necessary time and research needed before making decisions on the BOC. As a commissioner I will continue to work to find the balance between protecting our natural rural beauty and providing the economic

growth suited to our Polk County way of life. Margaret Johnson In addition to my family, my life has focused on serving others, both professionally and through civic and volunteer activities. As a registered nurse, I have worked in emergency rooms and coronary care units and have extensive community health experience. I am also a veteran. After serving in the Air Force Nurse Corps, I was fortunate to have the GI Bill to help me return to college to obtain a Business Administration degree. I am a person who likes to build things up and see people’s lives made better by the efforts. For example, when I started as the administrator of a health care corporation, we had 15 employees. Nine years later, the corporation employed 250 people and had a multi-million dollar budget. I have done the same kind of building in the many community organizations in which I have volunteered. In my community health work, I cared for people all over Polk County and have seen first hand the different challenges we face. I do not shy away from difficult situations and am known for working hard and doing my best to do the right thing. I was born outside of Nashville, Tenn., grew Margaret Johnson up in south Georgia and moved to Polk County seven years ago. My husband, son and I feel so fortunate to live in this wonderful place. I want to protect its natural beauty and rural character and I want to help our families and businesses prosper. I give my all to anything I undertake and I will give my all in working for everyone in Polk County. Tommy Melton My website is

Polk commissioner candidates answer Bulletin questions The Bulletin recently asked Polk County commissioners candidates to answer five questions about local issues. Here are their answers to the first question. 1. Out of all the recommendations in Polk County’s Vision 20/20 Comprehensive Plan, which would you most like to see put into action? How would you accomplish that? Ray D. Gasperson I believe that several of the primary recommendations of the 20/20 Plan are so interconnected that they should be implemented in tandem over a period of time. This should be done through wise land use planning which also takes into account protecting our natural rural beauty while providing economic growth suited to our Polk County way of life. However, for me personally, I have a main focus on supporting land use planning that will encourage and accommodate more mod-


est priced (affordable) housing for working adults and retirees. This can be achieved in part by establishing affordable housing areas and density bonus provisions in the controlled growth and intended growth sectors. Inter-generational assisted living housing centers or villages would provide much needed residences for our growing senior population. Finally, mixed residential/nonresidential buildings in the intended growth, development node, and special sectors could provide much needed affordable housing to working adults and retirees. Margaret Johnson The comprehensive plan recommendations that I believe are currently the most important to our county are the ones that address the “mutually beneficial balance between preservation of natural resources and economic growth.” Some of the actions that I would like to see to achieve this balance are:



• Support the Economic Development Commission’s efforts to develop a job creation strategy focusing on agriculture, tourism and health care. • Support local small businesses because they are crucial to a stable local economy. • Target and recruit companies specializing in equestrian and cultural based manufacturing. • Actively recruit and retain a younger workforce to the county by enhancing nature-based recreational opportunities. • Encourage agricultural industries, such as research and development and nursery-based crops. • Identify and recruit heritage based service industries, such as arts and crafts, toys and educational manufacturing, hospitality based industry and senior services. • Give preference to recruiting clean industries including eco-and agri- tourism. Tommy Melton Currently, Polk County is work-



ing with Tryon, Columbus and Saluda to possibly establish a joint water authority. It is vital that we take steps to insure that future water needs will be met for our citizens. At this time, over 60% of the county’s residents rely on groundwater systems. The Town of Columbus is on a four-well system to supply their customers’ water needs. Tryon relies primarily on Lake Lanier. Saluda’s current source of drinking water is Hendersonville; who, in turn, purchases water from Buncombe County. With the cooperation of the towns and the county, we can build and improve the water infrastructure that will result in cost savings to the towns and county, and also provide a window for economic development (clean industry, technology-driven sectors, etc). David Moore A water authority made up of the three towns and the county.

The Bulletin recently asked Polk County sheriff candidates to answer five questions 2x10 about local issues. Here are their answers to 10/1 the first question. 1. How TDBB-038914 would you like the county to handle future jail needs? Do you think the county needs to construct a new jail in the near future and if so, do you think that jail should house female as well as male inmates? Donald Hill The county has, for some time, struggled to meet established

state jail standards and continues to do so. The fire in the Mitchell County Jail facility in 2002 that killed 8 inmates brought about needed regulations and standards to protect inmates as well as staff within these facilities. The current jail was constructed 35 years ago, and has served the county well, but is no doubt outdated. The county needs to prepare and implement a plan for replacing the current jail with a facility that

•Comm. answers

Comprehensive Plan has provided us with a useful tool to help us plan and improve our economy. We must collaborate with our Economic Development Commission and County Manager to recruit small and medium low-impact, high-quality, well-compensated opportunities for our citizens. We should facilitate a strong connection between our agricultural interests and other sectors of the economy. We must also build on what we have in place to promote our business sector, our equine industry as well as travel and tourism so that we might better showcase our beautiful community. Warren Watson I would focus on economic development. I would hire a highlyskilled full-time economic development director, and I would make economic development a budget priority, providing our director and board with the necessary tools to invest in future business development and job growth. I would encourage aggressive pursuit of the economic development strategies endorsed by our EDC, focusing on healthcare provider recruitment, equine specialties and agricultural research and development, including an important education component in conjunction with ICC and our university networks. I would pursue water interests including a joint water authority, a watershed designation for the Green River basin, and interconnection of our county and town water systems.

This will be a huge step in having water available to all citizens.

Ted Owens By establishing a water system for the entire county. We have had a very hot and dry summer. This serves as a reminder of how critical water is to us. By working with and encouraging the towns and county to work together to establish a water authority that could provide the water infrastructure system that utilizes all of our water resources including Lake Adger. Tom Pack Economic development needs to be one of the top priorities of the board. Work to make Polk County business friendly. We need to help local business that want to expand with incentives based on job creation and capital investment. We also need to work to bring new businesses into Polk County with these same types of incentives. We need to work to get private investors to build suitable facilities to offer to new businesses or ones that are expanding. Again we can offer incentives to these investors. These incentives need to be based on results so that we see the availability of new jobs for the citizens of Polk. This economic growth will also help lower property taxes as our tax base would increase. Benny Smith The economy. The Vision 20/20

provides services for both men and women and incorporates modern safety features. Housing needs for male and female inmates have increased dramatically since the construction of the current facility. Many times inmates must sleep on a mattress in the floor, which creates safety and health issues. I feel it is time to move forward toward a safer more modern facility that could be constructed to accommodate not only the jail but other county agencies that many times need law enforcement services. Nathan Shields The current jail is antiquated and needs to be replaced. This will obviously take money. Polk County will need to secure federal and state grants to make a new jail affordable. I am not suggesting a tax increase. I am suggesting that a coherent plan needs to be created for construction and funding for a jail to accommodate the entire county’s jail population; in an effort to prevent any potential civil litigation involving the structural condition of the jail that may occur and transporting of female inmates. Construction costs only rise; therefore, the sooner a new jail

facility the better. Females should be housed in the future facility, as well as temporary housing of juvenile offenders until release to parents or other appropriate agency. Presently female inmates have to be housed in other jails and their housing expenses and transportation expenses come out of the Polk County jail budget.

instabilities and decreased functional mobility. Educating people throughout their lifespans about ways to move better with increased ease and confidence, improved alignment and less pain and helping people achieve their optimal health and fitness is a goal of physical therapists. Here are a few misconceptions about physical therapy: • “I must have a doctor’s referral/prescription to have physical therapy.” False: North Carolina is a direct access state for physical therapy services. A medical doctor’s prescription is necessary for Medicare coverage but many private insurances do not require a referral. Cash payment for services is also always an option. • “Physical therapy is only for people who are sick, hurt or who have had surgery.” False: Physical therapy can benefit anyone who wants to learn more about his or her body, identify muscle imbalances, and get help designing safe effective exercise programs to meet their individual goals of athletic performance, optimal health, weight loss, or fitness goals. • “I have diabetes and physical therapy can’t help me.” False: Between education about diet, foot care and precise exercise prescription, a physical therapist can help diabetics live with their disease and minimize its deleterious effects. • “Children are fast healers – they don’t need physical therapy.” False: Children are very susceptible to recurrent injuries, especially because they often return to their sport or activity without addressing underlying imbalances. Physical therapists can identify deficits and instruct children and parents in proper and preventative stretching, strengthening, and agility exercises to maximize their performance and fun.

Street was listed on 5/19/2008 for $115,000. The board of commissioners ordered an appraisal to be done by Village Properties in Lynn, N.C. That appraisal was done by Frederick E. Placak Jr., signed and dated November 7, 2008. The property was appraised for $112,500. We also asked for comps. Mr. Placak gave us three comps and they were $92,250, $113,250 and $152,000. I have this paperwork in hand, and you can also view this at the Womack Building, where you have already spent many hours. So you see, Jerry, I’m a little confused why your supporters didn’t jump at the opportunity to buy property below appraised value. Should I be fortunate enough to talk to your supporters that would be my first question to ask them and then my next question would be “Did you make a written offer to buy the property at any price?” You see, Jerry, your story has holes in it, just like your big snake story has many holes. You keep mentioning backroom deals. Where are the backroom deals? The minutes of these meetings to acquire this property were fully disclosed in the Bulletin recently. It seems you missed that article. You have many vague innuendos in your letter concerning “power happy” politicians (I assume aimed at me), but you have no proof of the validity of these careless statements. Your continuing efforts to vilify the former board of commissioners have actually become counterproductive to your cause. Every time one of your letters appears in the Bulletin, I get calls or emails from citizens asking me to put one of my signs in their yards. It’s time to say “enough is enough.” Let us get on with our work for the next 40 plus days, and then allow the voters to decide who the most qualified candidates are. I have full confidence in the voters of Polk County, and I also know they don’t like being jerked around. – Tommy W. Melton

Letter to the Editor

Snakes, rhinos and Jesus

spread Saturday the 18th for the Democrat Party. You would not believe the money they were paid. Sounds like true blue, full blown dyed in the wool Republican to me. There was a big crowd eating Harry Denton’s BBQ. I saw a lot of RINOs and wall to wall Democrats. There were no speeches, just good music, good food, good people and good fun. Jeff Byrd’s “Crossing the line” TDB of Sept. 15, page 27, tells it like it is. I first met Jeff after a prayer breakfast years ago. You can tell a lot about a man by the way he talks with God. Jeff’s “Crossing the line” esteems the Judeo-Christian tradition of all God’s children being respectful and nice to each other. Amen Brother. I find it easy to “talk the talk,” but when it comes to “walking the walk,” poor old Joe Boy leaves a lot to be desired. – Joseph “Joe” Hill, Sr.

To the Editor: The snakes are not poisonous. Harry really is a Republican and if there ain’t no Jesus, there ain’t no hope for me or Jeff Byrd. Tommy’s snakes do bite but it only hurts your feelings. You will not die. You may cry if you know the ‘ole “Arab.” Only God knows how special he once was to me. I can remember in the late 1940s when Sheriff Hines would come by our house in downtown Columbus on Saturday night after the square dance at Stearns Gym. He was Tommy Melton’s Grandpa. Harry Denton grew up in Green River Cove and Lake Adger. He was a Columbus Town Council member, later Polk County Commissioner. He has always been a Republican. To

call Harry a RINO (Republican in name only) would be like calling Red Ted and the MOP squad (Moore, Owens, Pack) CINOs (Christian in name only). The MOP squad kill and eat their own. Harry was devoured by three full page ads in the TDB right before their primary, April 15, “Not again Harry Denton,” signed Tammy Cline. Is she related to Patsy? May 3, “Not again Harry Denton,” signed Donny J. Ruff. Is he related to Billy? Again on May 3, Harry are you really a conservative or just a RINO? Signed B.L. Moore. We know who he is. A full page in TDB $320 times 3 equals $960 just to trash Harry Denton. Sounds like CINO to me. Tammy Cline and Donny Ruff told Harry to go sell his BBQ and leave the “good” people of Polk County and their money alone. Guess what, Harry and Mack (the RINOs) put on a BBQ

The weekend workshop will start with an introduction to leather, where it comes from, the tanning process, and products created from leather. Boyer will then discuss preparation of the leather, including making a pattern, and transferring the pattern to the leather surface. Finally he will introduce the tools including the swivel knife, mallet, camouflage tool, pear shader, beveler, veiner, seeder and background tools, and how they are used in carving. These tools will be used to create two small projects. The first will be a stamping project – a coin purse. The second will be a bookmark carved and tooled using all of the tools that participants will have become familiar with. A third project may be possible if time allows. The hours of the workshop are Saturday, October 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, October 10, from 1 to 6 p.m. The six week classes are designed for students with basic leatherworking skills. The classes will be held Thursday afternoons from 1 to 4 p.m. These sessions will further expand the students’ basic skills while encouraging them to develop their own creative style. Students will work on projects of their choosing under the guidance of the instructor. Although prior experience or the weekend workshop is preferred,

Boyer will work with those with strong interest but no experience. Boyer began doing leatherwork in 1970 when Tandy Leather Company was holding seminars with some of the pioneers of this art form. He has belonged to several arts and crafts guilds including the Pennsylvania State Guild, the Kernersville, N.C. Guild, and the WinstonSalem Guild. “While leatherwork is a craft, it is also an art form,” affirms Boyer, “an art form that will teach self discipline.” Advance registration for all classes and workshops is required. Students may take one or both of the offerings. A discount will be offered to students who register for both. For more information about the instructor or workshop including tuition and supply costs, contact Tryon Arts & Crafts at 828-859-8323 or by email tryonartsandcrafts@ More details and examples of projects are available on the Tryon Arts and Crafts website, There are a limited number of spaces available for this class. Tryon Arts and Crafts is a non-profit crafts school located at 373 Harmon Field Road in Tryon and exists to provide creative opportunities for everyone. – article submitted

Short history lesson


Catered Meal Provided by: Polk County Farm Bureau Door Prizes

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor: A short history lesson for current voters with a short memory: President Reagan gave huge tax breaks for top earners so they would invest in our industries and the results would create jobs and prosperity for those standing around with begging bowls. The process was called “trickle down economics.” When nothing trickled down, President Reagan raised taxes, to his credit,

stonelighting - page 2

and the economy leveled out. President Bush, Sr. (“Read my lips, no new taxes”) went through the same routine, with the same results, and to his credit, again saved the sinking economy by raising taxes on the rich. Now, the current conservatives are (believe it or not) again pushing hard to revive “trickle down economics.” May I suggest that the current provocateurs deliver their outdated message not from a soapbox, but standing on a toilet. Please lower the seat. – John V. Lonero, Ph.D

Think through reverse mortgages carefully

Buy, Sell, Technology w "Blending t tes ogy Work … Trade, La nol ch Te Your Neighbors! With

by Attorney General Roy Cooper

Many seniors are trying to stretch their retirement savings and Social Security benefits to make ends meet. If you find yourself in that situation, you may have considered tapping into the equity in your home through what’s called a reverse mortgage. While taking out a reverse mortgage can make sense for some seniors, it’s important to examine this tool carefully to make sure it’s the best choice for you. In a reverse mortgage, the lender makes a loan that doesn’t have to be repaid until the homeowner sells the home, dies or stops using it as a primary residence. The homeowner must be at least 62 years old and have substantial equity in their home to qualify. Unlike traditional mortgages where the homeowner makes payments to the lender, with a reverse mortgage the homeowner gets a large lump sum payment, monthly payments or a line of credit based on the value of his or her home. The money can be used for medical expenses, home repair or everyday living costs. While these loans are occasionally advertised as “free money,” they’re far from it. Reverse mortgages often have high upfront fees and interest which get added to the balance of the loan, causing the amount you owe to grow over time. Although some reverse mortgages have fixed rates, most have variable rates that can change with market conditions. Other important things to know about reverse mortgages: • Homeowners are still responsible for property taxes, insurance, utilities, maintenance, and other expenses. If you don’t pay your property taxes, carry homeowner’s insurance, or maintain the condition of your home, your loan may become due and payable. • Interest on reverse mort-

gages is not deductible on income tax returns until the loan is paid off in part or whole. • Reverse mortgages can use up the equity in your home, and leave fewer assets for you and your heirs. If a reverse mortgage still seems like a good fit for you, consider the following tips before you sign your name on the dotted line. Explore other options. Other loan products, such as standard mortgages and home equity lines of credit, may make more sense. Other financial options, such as drawing on retirement plans or selling the home, should also be considered. You may also be eligible for local home repair assistance programs or other public benefits. Talk to a housing counselor. A reverse mortgage is a complex loan secured by your home. Whether such mortgages make sense for you depends on your financial situation and needs. North Carolina law requires that homeowners consult with a qualified, independent housing counselor before making a decision, so review your loan carefully with your housing counselor. Housing counselors can help you learn about reverse mortgages, identify and evaluate the available alternatives, and understand the potential consequences, including the impact on your taxes, benefits, and heirs. Be wary of anyone trying to sell you other products along with a reverse mortgage. Because a reverse mortgage can give you access to a large amount of money, it can make you a target for aggressive sales pitches for expensive and inappropriate products or services. Steer clear of anyone trying to sell you other products, such as annuities, long-term care insurance, investment programs, or home repair services, along with a reverse mortgage. – article submitted

Informal music making has always been a part of the event and the festival has been recognized by inclusion in the “Blue Ridge Music Trails” guide published by the University of North Carolina Press. The “Music Trail” is a guide to places and events where skilled practitioners are keeping North Carolina’s traditional music alive.

It is as if you had some $14,000 stored away, when someone legitimately stole from you around $8,000 because the government--who is supposed to protect you--decided that you didn’t need protection. The legitimate thief then decided to return $4,000. You are supposed to thank that thief by allowing your children to turn a portion of their hard-earned wages to that person to take care of their money?

Dana Mayer (left), rescue and foster coordinator at the Foothills Humane Society, and Lenny Rizzo (center), animal friend extraordinaire, shared their love for animals and hope for a better future for them with the Tryon Kiwanis Club recently. Even though there is huge support for animal care in Polk County, there are always many at the shelter who need loving homes. David Little (right) thanked them for their presentation to club members and explained that a children’s book would be donated to a local school in their honor. (photo submitted)

Good or bad news.... Editor’s note: Comedienne Pam Stone writes her column for The Tryon Daily Bulletin twice each month from her office at her home in Gowensville. Want a chance to respond to this column? Go to Pam’s blog at “I’ve got some good news or bad news, depending on how you look at it.” said Paul from his cell phone, somewhere outside Spartanburg in the late evening. What does one make of that? Did he find an envelope stuffed with $50,000 and is now being chased down by thugs? Has he won an all-expense-paid trip for two, but it’s to Toledo? Was he savaged by a snarling dog that turned out not to be rabid? “As you went down to help at the library sale, I’m assuming you’ve run across a first edition of ‘Catcher In The Rye’?” I asked, hopefully, then added, “But some kid has scrawled his name all over it with a Sharpie?”

and paws around my wrist and pulled my hand downwards until he lost balance and toppled over on his back. Lying on the floor, he began licking my hand with gusto. “He likes you!” exclaimed Paul. Bonnie, our terrier, came over to nervously investigate and the cat did the same thing: wrapped his arms around her head to pull her towards him. Bonnie, horrified, leapt backwards and fled from the room. “He’s pretty needy, isn’t he?” I replied. “Maybe this is why he was dumped. His owner needed some space.” As I type, there are two paws, one on either side of my shoulders, along with the rest of “Dennis” (yes, we’ve gone ahead and named him), standing on the back of my chair and pressed and purring against my back. I have never known a cat so grateful, so relieved, to be taken in. Next week he goes to the vet to be checked out and examined for a micro-chip. Sure hope they don’t find one.

the following changes: Annual and lifetime limits – At the 1x4.5 1x4.5 new plan year, plans may not contain 9/10 lifetime9/10 limits on essential benefits. This PCBD-038647 PCBD-038647 provision applies to all plans. Annual limits will be phased out through 2014 for all plans, except grandfathered individual plans. Check with your insurance company to see if this applies to your policy before you renew. Rescissions – Rescission is when an insurance company retroactively cancels your policy. The Affordable Care Act bans rescissions except in cases of fraud or intentional misrepresentation of material fact. You must be notified prior to the cancellation, and you will be able to have the decision reviewed under your policies internal appeal/grievance procedures. This provision applies to all types of health insurance plans. Preventive health services – A wide range of preventive care including immunizations, well baby and child screenings, and well women exams must be covered without cost-sharing under all non-grandfathered plans. For an exact list of what preventive services are available without cost-sharing, contact your insurance company. Adult dependent coverage – Plans that cover dependent children must extend coverage until the child’s 26th birthday. This applies to both individual and group health plans, however before 2014, group health plans will be required to cover

adult children only if the adult child is not eligible for employer-sponsored coverage. Adult children cannot be charged more than any other dependent. Preexisting condition exclusions – Beginning September 23, 2010, children under 19 years of age cannot be denied coverage or benefits based on medical status or past illnesses. This applies to all plans except grandfathered individual plans. The Affordable Care Act also eliminates pre-existing condition exclusions for everyone starting in 2014. Until 2014, each state will have a federal high risk pool that provides insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. In North Carolina, Inclusive Health administers the federal high risk pool alongside the existing state high risk pool. For more information, consumers should contact Inclusive Health at 866-665-2117 or There are also increased provisions included in the Affordable Care Act that help consumers when they must appeal a claim denial; North Carolina already has a program that helps consumers appeal their health insurance denials. The Department’s Healthcare Review Program provides consumer counseling for working through insurance company internal appeals as well as coordinates external appeals by independent experts. Consumers who receive a health insurance claim denial should call the Healthcare Review Program at 877-885-0231. The Affordable Care Act does not require people to change their existing coverage and/or find new coverage if they are satisfied with their current health insurance policy. If a health insurance plan existed as of March 23, 2010 — the date the Affordable Care Act was enacted 1x18 — the plan is known as1x18 a “grandfathered 9/10,24, plan.” Grandfathered9/10,24, plans are exempt 10/1,8,15,22,29 from most changes required by the Af10/1,8,15,22,29 PCBD0-????? fordable Care Act.PCBD0-?????

PCHS looks to halt Cougars’ WHC run by John Clayton

the polk County High school and Mountain Heritage football teams shared the Western Highlands Conference 2a title a year ago. In that case, sharing wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Mountain Heritage rode the wave of that conference championship and a 21-7 regular-season victory over pCHs all the way to the state finals. “Last season, they lost to Hendersonville, then beat us and did not lose again until they lost in the state championship,” said pCHs head coach Bruce ollis. “I expect a great game with the two teams that shared the WHC title in 2009.” the Cougars (4-1 overall, 1-0, WHC) have already dispatched Hendersonville this season with a 28-22 victory this past week in which quarterback tyson tomberlin threw for three touchdown passes. Mountain Heritage scored two touchdowns in the final 5:31 – a scoring strike from tomberlin and an interception returned for a touchdown – to secure the win. Meanwhile, it was business as usual for pCHs (5-0, 1-0), ranked No. 7 in the Class 2a associated

press poll. the Wolverines were occasionally dominating in a 43-14 conference road win over Madison, but struggled with a proliferation of penalties, two of which nullified touchdowns, and three andre overholt interceptions. pCHs head coach Bruce ollis was happy to see his team remain composed throughout last week’s game. “our players and coaches over the years have remained pretty business like when it comes to preparation and playing,” ollis said. “I believe this prevents us from ebbing and flowing too much much emotionally, which can develop into a problem if you aren't careful. Certainly having a good number of seniors makes it easier for us to communicate our mission to the players.” But the turnovers are a concern that was addressed during practice this week. “We must eliminate turnovers if we are to have the type of season we are capable of having,” ollis said. “We don't normally have a problem here and need to nip it in the bud before it prevents us from winning a close game. We have addressed it at practice and I believe you will see a difference in that area.”

Cardinals open region slate against Whitmire by John Clayton

another week, another winless opponent for Landrum. the Cardinals (3-2) have put together back-to-back dynamic offensive performances on the way to their region II-a opener at 7:30 tonight against visiting Whitmire (0-5). Last week, similarly winless Liberty was the victim in a 56-14 trouncing by LHs and its explosive offense. the Cardinals have scored 110 points in their past two games, including a 54-21 win over Dixie, and the statistics point toward another rout as LHs returns home. But LHs head coach russell Mahaffey doesn’t put all his stock in numbers. “they have a few guys on sports – page 2

2010 Foothills CROP Walk November 7 The 2010 Foothills CROP Walk against local and worldwide hunger will be held at Harmon Field on Sunday, November 7 beginning at 1:30 p.m. The 2010 Foothills CROP Walk committee is asking civic groups, volunteer organizations, churches and businesses to put the time, date and place on their calendars. CROP stands for Citizens Responding to Overcome Poverty. Not many people realize what CROP stands for, not even those who have helped over the years to build in the success of this event; CROP is about the distribution of food to people here at home and around the world. CROP is about feeding people who are hungry almost every day of their lives. CROP is about providing good, safe drinking water. CROP is also about sustainable systems that improve the quality of life for people all over the earth. The incredible thing about the CROP Walk is that it doesn’t take that

much time for volunteers. There are many levels of help that are needed, such as event sponsors. Sponsor donations provide basic marketing and site needs. Each sponsor will be listed on the 2010 CROP Walk shirt. Their name and logos will be present on walk day as well as in posted thank you notices in local newspapers. To participate at this level requires one five minute phone call or a chat with a walker. “Good Neighbor” recruiters help walkers understand the CROP Walk, the promotional materials and help effectively gather donations from walkers on walk day. You can be a “Good Neighbor” for your church, club or organization for a commitment of about three hours. Walkers are the backbone of the CROP Walk. Walkers come in all ages and sizes from babies to greatgreat-grandparents. The walk has no specific end. Walkers can walk for five miles or just a ¼ mile. Since each walker will spend a different amount

of time gathering sponsors and walking the day of the walk, it is hard to estimate a time commitment. But you could be a walker for a minimum of two hour commitment. Walker sponsors are needed to actually provide the funds that will help change the face of our world. The funds you give to the 2010 Foothills CROP Walk walkers will

change the face of poverty and suffering world wide. To learn more about CROP, come to the Pre-walk rally at 2 p.m., Sunday, October 3, at Columbus Methodist Church, located on N.

It’s The Truth

God “desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 timothy 2:4). therefore, when the Son of God was conceived and born for you as a man, having lived a holy life as the second adam and the obedient Son of the Father, having offered himself as the sacrifice for your sin, having arisen, He sent His apostles. “then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and he said to them, ‘thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and rise again from the dead the third day; and that repentance for forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.’” (luke 24:45-47)

Jesus “opened” the minds of his disciples. understanding was given to them. repentant hearts. Faith in the Savior. reliance not on the things of this life, but on righteousness and the kingdom of God. “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). Soon even Saul, the most infamous enemy of the Gospel of Jesus, was converted and by the holy Spirit Saul (now Paul) was made its chief proponent and defender. through Paul the forgiveness of sins for Jesus’ sake was preached to lydia, “and the lord opened her heart to pay attention to the things spoken by Paul” (act 16:14). She was baptized and her household. through Paul the Philippian jailer was saved. “‘Believe in the lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, you and your household.’ and they spoke the word of the lord to him together with all who were in his house. and he took them that very hour of the night and washed their wounds, and immediately he was baptized, he and all of his. and he brought them into his house and set food before them, and rejoiced greatly, having believed in God with his whole household.” (acts 16:30f)

“he calls with a call that fetches men out of their cells into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. he calls with a call that many reject, for he takes no prisoners in his company. God came to set the captives free. there can be pain as we hold back, clinging to the chains, but the chains are broken and he would have us free.” -- Dr. norman nagel

But God does not save us from our evil ways in order that we might continue in them. Christian people are filled with mercy in order that they might show mercy to those around them. Such is the vocation of everyone born from above. Be merciful as your Father has been merciful to you. Bear your neighbor’s sins by forgiving them and seek justice for all, especially the elderly and unborn, the orphan and widow. how can a Christian survive this evil age? God has given into your hands the holy Scriptures. these are his ongoing miracle on earth, for they speak truth in all things, delivering the promises of God. From beginning to end they speak of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, the only name given among men whereby man must be saved (John 5:46; luke 24:44). they tell of his way. “to me he said: ‘Stay close to Me, i am your rock and castle. your ransom i Myself will be; for you i strive and wrestle. For i am yours and you are Mine, and where i am you may remain; the foe shall not divide us.’” Hymn - Dear Christians v. 7

Call for a visit.


When one examines closely what is written, it is wonderful to see the way of the lord as expressed in Scripture. they spoke “the word of the lord” to him. Of what did Paul speak but of the holiness and righteousness of Jesus Christ, of his death and resurrection for the sins of all people—and of Baptism. For “immediately he was baptized.” new life and eternal salvation came to that entire household that night. even so, when in acts 8 Philip the evangelist came alongside the ethiopian eunuch in his chariot, Philip “preached Jesus to him.” What did he speak about but the suffering and dying lamb of God who had been led to the slaughter, who is risen, by whose stripes mankind is healed—and of Baptism. For “as they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch said, ‘look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?’” (act 8:36) and the

man was born from above into the kingdom of heaven, born of God. Salvation from sin and death and hell is for everyone in the world. God is no respecter of persons. Jesus Christ died for all, the Just for the unjust. Salvation is for you and for your family and for your neighbor near and far. that is the message the disciples of Jesus proclaimed from the beginning, when they were moved by the holy Spirit. Peter said it so plainly on Pentecost, “repent and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are afar off . . .” (acts 2:38-39).

Pneumonia causes around 40,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, many of which could be prevented by this vaccine. If you’re over age 65 and haven’t already gotten this shot you should get it now before flu season hits. Also covered under Medicare Part B, a shot of Pneumovax will provide you protection that will last for up to 10 years, and you can get it on the same day that you get your flu shot. Whooping Cough Whooping cough, formally known as pertussis, is on the rise this year with wide outbreaks in California and various other U.S. locations. That’s why the CDC is also recommending all adults, ages 19 through 64 get

Dear Savvy Senior, Outside of a seasonal flu shot, which I usually get, are public health officials recommending any additional vaccinations for seniors this flu season? Cautious Carol Dear Carol, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is actually recommending several vaccinations for seniors right now: One for seasonal flu; one for pneumonia; and depending on your age and living circumstances, a Tdap booster shot for whooping cough. Here’s what you should know. Seasonal Flu Just like every other year, a seasonal flu shot is strongly urged by the CDC, especially for seniors age 65 and older, because they have the highest risks of developing dangerous complications. The flu puts more than 200,000 people in the hospital each year and kills around 24,000 – 90 percent of whom are seniors. You also need to know that this year’s seasonal flu vaccine will protect you against the H1N1 swine flu too, all in one shot. Seniors also will have the option this year of getting the new high-potency flu vaccine instead of a regular flu shot. This new FDA-approved vaccine – known as the Fluzone High-Dose – will help boost your immune response which will give you extra protection from influenza. To locate vaccination sites near you, call your county health department or the

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. Lifetime QTIP

Q. My husband and I have an estate of $3 million, but his share of our property is only $300,000. Is there any way to ensure my husband’s estate will use the applicable exclusion amount if he dies first and ensure that my property will go to my children after we are both gone? A. Yes As it currently stands if your husband dies before you do, only $300,000 will be in his estate and the benefit of the full exclusion amount ($1million) will be lost. By using a lifetime QTIP trust, you can make a tax-free gift to your husband but control the use of that gift. The value of the QTIP will be included in your husband’s estate and not yours. You can provide that when you are both gone, the property remaining in the QTIP trust is to go to your children. This technique accomplishes both goals of reducing estate taxes and ensuring that your children receive the benefit of your assets.

As part of the 2010-2011 Arts in Education offerings, Tryon Fine Arts Center is producing a touring one act play featuring two teams of local high school actors and the writings of Mark Twain. “The Mark Twain Show” will be presented in elementary, middle and high schools in Polk County and District One schools in South Carolina, using a small ensemble cast from each state. With cooperation from all schools, director Marianne Carruth auditioned high school students from throughout the foothills for this production. The cast touring in South Carolina features two Landrum High School juniors, Jerreth Emory and Liana Stadelmann, as well as Chapman High School senior Karla Nason. The North Carolina cast features three Polk County High School students, juniors Sara Seagle and Katelyn Duncan and freshman Eli Jenkins. Working the technical and backstage side of the tour will be homeschooled high school students Alexa Hughes and Ingrid Tart-Remington.
