Some Columbus officials made it clear last week that the town has not made a decision about joining a water authority. They said the town’s water system is its “lifeline” and “livelihood.” “In Columbus, our water is the

majority of our income and if we let that go, we’re going to have to raise taxes,” said Columbus councilwoman Margaret Metcalf. “Basically, we’d be giving up our livelihood.” Metcalf said the town depends on water revenues because the town receives no tax revenue from the majority of its buildings. Many of the buildings in Columbus house county

government offices, churches and non-profit organizations, which are exempt from taxes.

However, Columbus Town Manager Jonathan Kanipe pointed out that last fiscal year, Columbus’ water and sewer fund had to borrow from the town's fund balance to break even. Tryon officials seemed to be on the other end of the spectrum and said they are interested in not only a water authority, but a joint water and sewer authority. At Tuesday's meeting, the county and each town explained their current water and sewer systems, including how many customers each serve, water and sewer plant usage and capacity, employees it takes to run the systems, water and sewer rates, last year and this year’s budgeted expenditures and debt service (see table on p. 3). Columbus has the cheapest inside water and sewer rates in the county; it is the only entity whose base water rate is under $20. Columbus’ inside residential base water rate is $16.65 per month, compared to Saluda’s, the highest, at $36.86 per month, Tryon’s at $22.55 per month and the county’s at $20.16 per month. Columbus and Tryon’s total combined debt for water and sewer systems totals $8,463,004, with $3,078,737 coming from Columbus and $5,384,267 from Tryon. Saluda did not include total debt in last week’s presentation, but has $82,960 of debt service budgeted this year. Polk County does not have any current debt for its water and sewer systems. The county spent $1,601,897 on water and sewer systems last fiscal year, mostly for the purchase of Lake Adger ($1.6M). Polk County, Columbus, Saluda and Tryon have a combined total of 3,699 water customers and 1,623 sewer customers. The total capacity per day in the entire county is 2.5 million gallons for water and 2,415,000 gallons for sewer. Water and sewer actual usage is much lower than capac-

ity, with 997,541 total gallons of water and 487,462 gallons of sewage being used per day by residents of the county and towns. The county and towns have 161 miles of water lines and 41 miles of sewer lines combined (not including Saluda). Other water/sewer assets owned by the towns or county were also discussed last week including six water pump stations and 10 sewer lift stations. The available water sources and potential sources were also listed, including: • Lake Adger • Three wells and 0.6 million gallons per day of water from the Broad River Water Authority for Polk County • Four producing wells in Columbus • Two lakes and two dams in Tryon, including Lake Lanier and the town lake (from its mountain water source). Saluda purchases its water from the City of Hendersonville. Columbus also listed a 500,000 gallon water tank and Polk County a 132,000 gallon water tank. All entities also included information on other assets, such as backhoes, trucks, dump trucks, a sewer line jetter (in Columbus) and a track hoe (in Tryon). Polk County, Columbus, Saluda and Tryon officials met in August with a representative of the Tuckaseigee Water and Sewer Authority, which was created in 1992 in Jackson County, N.C. by the county and the towns of Dillsboro, Sylva and Webster. The Tuckaseigee representative said creating the joint water authority was challenging but worth the effort. Officials agreed last week to ask elected officials from Dillsboro, Sylva and Webster to come to the next joint meeting to talk about how creating the Tuckaseigee Water and Sewer Authority affected the towns.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested two men from South Carolina last week in connection with the larceny of two golf carts and a lawnmower from White Oak Golf and Equestrian Community development in the Green Creek area. Gary Michael Griffin Jr., 36, of 814 Rabbit Moffit Rd., Chesnee, S.C., and James Allen Carr, 33, of 820 Rabbit Moffit Road, Inman, S.C., were both arrested and charged with two counts of felony larceny, according to Chief Deputy Calvin Atkins. Atkins says the arrests

was asked to contact those town officials. This is not the first time Polk and the towns have met to create a water authority. During drought conditions earlier this decade, the group held similar joint discussions, but they broke off as a result of disagreements between the county and towns. Columbus, Tryon and Saluda decided to create a back-up system for one another and the county went on its own to create its own system.

occured last Thursday after sheriff’s officers found a vehicle that was identified as the vehicle that allegedly left the scene. The robberies occurred sometime last July at the proposed development in the Green Creek community. One golf cart has been recovered and the sheriff’s office is in the process of tracking down the whereabouts of the other golf cart. The zero turn lawnmower, valued at approximately $10,000, was also recovered last week. As of last Friday, Carr had been released from jail on a $2,500 bond and Griffin was still in jail under a $5,000 bond.

You’ve still got time to take advantage of the best deal in years when you buy a high-efficiency wood heating system. For the rest of the year, you can take a 30% tax credit on the entire installed cost of a new woodburning system. Stove, chimney, labor and taxes all qualify. But act now—we’re not likely to ever see this great deal again!

Tryon taxpayers’ house found to be outside city limits Tryon considers voluntary annexation request by Leah Justice

to be. The town requested and the Douglas’ agreed to annex both properties owned. One property is partly inside city limits and partly outside, while the parcel the Douglas house sits on and is completely outside city limits. John Douglas says they’ve been paying inside city limit taxes on all the property he owns for the last 37 years. If the Douglas’ didn’t include the section of the one parcel outside city limits, but the parcel their house sits on, the house annexation would be a satellite annexation, which the town says it wants to avoid.

NAMI 4 Seasons (National Alliance on Mental Illness) will screen the award-winning documentary, “Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia” about how the illness affects families and communities. In observance of National Mental Illness Awareness Week, the film will be shown at The Meeting Place in Columbus on Thursday, October 7 at 7 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. “Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia” is an hour-long new documentary filmed mainly in Seattle. The film relates how an adult daughter, after years of avoiding her mentally ill father, decides to contact her missing parent. “It’s beautiful and powerful, a love poem and a call to action,” says L.A. Times reporter Steve Lopez, author of “The Soloist,” later made into a major film.

Now a practicing M.D. herself, the daughter, Dr. Delaney Ruston, feels impelled to reestablish a relationship with her father after years of avoiding him. “Ruston’s clear-eyed determination to explore the world of her father brings the viewer to see up close a detailed view of another’s struggles that is rarely seen in films. As a doctor, as a daughter, as a filmmaker, she manages to tell a story that is gripping and informative” writes Les Blank, award-winning filmmaker. The film has been selected for viewing by American Public Television to be released to PBS stations this October, coinciding with Mental Illness Awareness Week. Following the film, a discussion will be led by a professional mental health practitioner. For information, call 864-4577278. – article submitted

Oppenheimer featured at TPS’ Art, Wine & Cheese The Tryon Painters and Sculptors are sponsoring an Art, Wine and Cheese event with artist Nancy Oppenheimer at the Tryon Fine Arts Center, located at 34 Melrose Avenue in Tryon. The event will be held in the Mahler Room on Tuesday, October 12 from 4 to 6 p.m. with an hour demonstration by the artist. Oppenheimer graduated from the University of Hartford Art School, Ct., cum laude, followed by teaching art for three years in the Connecticut public school system. During this time she attended Paier Art School in New Haven, Ct., Rhode Island School of Design and Connecticut College, where she concentrated on illustration and sculpture. Since then Oppenheimer has worked commercially as an art director for a greeting card company and as an in-house and freelance illustrator for book

publishers, magazines, newspapers and ad agencies. Oppenheimer’s client list includes Scholastic Books, Simon and Schuster Books, Xerox Education Publications, Baker & Taylor Books, Pitspopany Books, Aetna Insurance and many more. On her website, www.nancyoppenheimer. com, you can read where she has shown her work throughout North and South Carolina. She has won awards in both states and is currently showing at Wickwire Gallery in Hendersonville, N.C. She also teaches at several schools in the area. Oppenheimer will talk about some of her paintings that she created using pastels on museum board or French handmade pastel paper, then framing them under museum glass (which has no glare). Oppenheimer says, “Many people think of chalk when they hear

the word pastels, but chalk is to glass as pastels are to diamonds. Pastels are among the most permanent and most pure of all mediums. Pastels from the 16th century have been found in pristine condition. Pastel paintings by Degas and Mary Cassatt remain in perfect condition, as well as when they were created, for many centuries and will never require restoration. Pastels are almost entirely pigment with barely any medium, hence their purity and extraordinary light refractive qualities.” Oppenheimer will be teaching a workshop at TPS on “How to Draw Like an Artist,” in charcoal and

Still perfect Wolverines bury Cougars, 41-19 by John Clayton

the polk County High offense was poised near the Mountain Heritage goal line Friday night when a power outage delayed the Wolverines’ inevitable 41-19 victory over visiting Mountain Heritage. that 30 or so minutes of darkness was about the only thing that has been able to consistently stop the unbeaten Wolverines (7-0 overall, 2-0 Western Highlands Conference) this season. the Cougars took a 7-0 lead on a 60-yard sprint by Matthew Kardulis as the two teams began trading touchdowns in the opening quarter, which ended in a 13-13 tie. But then pCHs reeled off 28 unanswered points behind senior quarterback andre overholt, who ran for four touchdowns and threw for another, effectively dismantling a team that appeared in last year’s state finals. “It’s a great feeling – we came out here and executed,” said overholt. “I was a little nervous about how it would play out, but we came out here and did our thing and turned out on top, and I’m thrilled.” Cody orick scored on an 11yard run in the first quarter after overholt got pCHs on the board with a 21-yard run. overholt added scoring runs of 15, 2 and 6 yards. He also connected on a 24-yard touchdown pass to Joel Booker just before halftime. “I was so pleased with the way we ran the football,” said pCHs head coach Bruce ollis. “I felt

like option football would be good to us, and it was very good tonight.” the Wolverines rolled up 260 yards on the ground with 197 of that total coming from overholt, who also completed 7 of 10 passes for 160 yards with the touchdown and an interception. the Cougars (4-2, 1-1) did most of their damage in the first quarter, but added a touchdown late in the fourth quarter following a pCHs fumble deep in its own territory as the backups got playing time. Kardulis, who finished with 100 yards on nine carries, rushed for all three Cougar scores. “We beat a pretty good football team tonight,” said ollis. “We got down early, but our players didn’t panic and our coaches didn’t panic, so that’s pleasing to know that you can get down to a good team and come back and win.”

Early LHS onslaught dooms Whitmire by John Clayton

By halftime, Landrum’s starting lineup was relaxing on the sidelines with a comfortable 42-0 lead that would turn out to be the final score in the Cardinals’ region II-a opener Friday night against visiting Whitmire. “It was good to come out fast like we did and get everybody some playing time,” said LHs head coach russell Mahaffey. “everybody played, so we got a look at some folks and got to rest some others.” Fullback Peyton McCarter scored two of the Cardinals’ six first-half touchdowns on runs of 11 and 73 yards. McCarter finished a short night of work with 113 yards on just four carries. Quarterback Brandon Cannon started Landrum’s scoring barrage with a 6-yard touchdown run and added a 42-yard scoring pass to tyler Logan to put the Cardinals ahead 21-0 before the end of the first quarter. Cannon completed all three of his pass attempts for 97 yards as the Cardinals (4-2 overall, 1-0 region II-a) were content to ground it out against overmatched Whitmire the rest of the way.

After McCarter’s 73-yard touchdown sprint, Cole McDowell added a 17-yard scoring run and Caleb Kuykendall scored from five yards out to stretch the LHs lead to 42-0 before intermission. “this was the most complete game we’ve played as far as not making mistakes and cutting down on penalties and things like that,” Mahaffey said. The Cardinals rolled up 332 yards on the ground on 36 rushing attempts and held the Wolverines (0-6, 0-1) to 39 yards of total offense – 34 passing and 4 rushing – en route to recording their first shutout of the season. the victory was the third straight for LHs, which has rebounded from disappointing losses to Chesnee and Polk County to score 152 points in its last three contests. “It’s good to have some momentum as we get into the conference schedule,” Mahaffey said. The Cardinals continue their conference slate this Friday night by hosting St. Joseph’s (1-5, 0-1) for homecoming. st. Joseph’s, in its first year of varsity competition, is coming off a 46-7 home loss to Blacksburg.

Local election season going to be interesting To the Editor: This local election season is going to be interesting, if the last few weeks of letters are any indication. There are many opinions about government to which we are all entitled, but in our public letters please let us not mangle the facts. In his September 22nd letter about the DSS building, Karl Kachadoorian linked the national health care bill to this local building issue. Karl should check his facts before mailing a letter. He stated that the Health care bill included a provision to “tax any home or land owner four percent of the sale price”. This is not in the bill! The bill calls for a 3.8 percent tax (not four percent) on the profit of over $250,000 if you are single, or $500,000 if you are married. This does not apply to just the sale of assets as Karl says. It is based on how much profit you make on the sale, and you have to make a lot of money. You and you spouse will only pay this tax if you earn over $500,000 in profit from the sale of your personal residence. How many of us are going to do that in this real estate market? In the future, with election tensions running high, I think our citizens deserve facts not myths to keep them informed. Public statements should be thoughtful and not intended to inflame. Also, don’t invent a link between national issues and local issues where none exists. – Jeff Jenkins

There are any number of good reasons to can meat. For one thing, doing so can save a lot of future cooking (for those times when you need to prepare a meal in a hurry), and it’s also a practical solution to the “overstuffed freezer� problem.

be dangerous. However, that simply isn’t so. Canning meat is as safe as is processing any other low-acid food in the same manner. You just have to follow the correct procedures. Why can meat, when you can freeze it? “I get asked this question quite often,� said Jimmi Buell, FCS Agent with the Cooperative Extension Service. “Certainly you can freeze meat, either cooked or frozen and that is a convenience in itself. However, meat in the freezer has a limited lifespan, which varies between different cuts. After a few months or longer in the freezer you might find that due to freezer conditions or simply father time the meat has degraded somewhat. When meat is canned it can last for many years if processed and stored correctly.� The Extension Office is offering a Meat Preserving Workshop. This workshop will cover the safe practices of preserving meat which will include canning as well as using a dehydrator on meat and other food products. The class will be held at the Polk County Extension Center on Tuesday, October 12 at 2 p.m. Call the Polk County Center of N.C. Cooperative Extension Service at 828-894-8218 to reserve your space. – article submitted

Constance decorates windows at St. Luke’s Thrift Shop Have you ever walked by the St. Luke’s Thrift Shop and wondered who does the window displays? Marie Constance is the designer. Some of you may remember Constance from Glimpses, Biltmore Village Dolls and Once Upon a Time, all stores where she previously worked. Smith recalls the shops in Biltmore Village fondly. “I loved working in those shops! It was loads of fun. Sometimes it was quite a challenge but that made it fun,” says Constance. Constance began volunteering at the thrift shop when it opened at its new location. She worked at the former Isadora’s Closet for five years, dressing the windows there, so it was a natural fit for her to use that knowledge at the thrift shop. Constance says she enjoys dressing the thrift shop windows. “It is my creative outlet. I enjoy beginning with a blank window and finishing with a picture I created. Sometimes I begin with one piece of clothing and then the idea just pops!” says Constance. Constance states she enjoys volunteering at the thrift shop and plans to do so for many years to come. “It is for a good cause – our hospital. I also love all the people with whom I work. We always have a good time. It feels good to give back,” Constance says.

Donations of clean, repaired clothing are appreciated. The thrift shop also sells jewelry and other goods such as toasters and dishes, and now, because of the new location, the thrift shop can accept furniture. There are always opportunities for volunteers at St. Luke’s Thrift Shop. Cashiers, sorters and pricers are needed. The thrift shop is open six days a week and depends on 75 volunteers to keep the shop open, stocked and attractive to the

public. The St. Luke’s Thrift Shop is located in downtown Tryon at 148 North Trade Street and operates Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. If you are interested in volunteering at the thrift shop, or anywhere at St. Luke’s Hospital, call Gayle Cook, director of volunteers, at 828-894-3311 for more information and an application. – article submitted
