Tryon house to be demolished



There once was a little old lady (bless her heart), Sleeping peacefully in her bed. Who awoke one night with an awful start, From water dripping onto her forehead. So she called on two roofers she found in the book, To ask them to come fix her leaks. They both said they’d be right there for a look— In 16 or 17 weeks.

This house located at 810 Markham Road will be demolished by fire tomorrow. The house is located at the corner of Markham Road and Tuckaway Lane. Tryon Town Council approved an ordinance to demolish the structure a few months ago. The Tryon Fire Department will burn the structure scheduled for 7 a.m. tomorrow. (photo submitted)

and a 50/50 raffle and live entertainment will also be part of this first annual agricultural celebration. The supper, auction, live music, and raffle will take place from 6 - 8:30 p.m. Local foods cookbook America’s legendary Blue Ridge Mountain region is known for its rich history and culture, and not least, its traditional cuisine. But much of what’s cooking here is new, including a thriving Farm to Table movement and increasingly established Slow Food conviviums. This philosophy - of caring about where food comes from, how it is grown, and how it is prepared - has transformed the culinary scene for newcomers and old-timers alike. The silent auction at the Farm to Fork Supper will include seven signed copies of "The New Blue Ridge Cookbook: Authentic Recipes from North Carolina’s Mountains to Virginia’s Highlands," written by Elizabeth Weigand.

Wiegand writes the book with the belief that behind every taste of local food there is a story. She says her mission is to explore the food that’s brought to southern tables and to share the passion of the “salad bar” ranchers who pasture-raise their beef, bakers who arise at ungodly hours to bake their loaves, and farmers who raise the pumpkins or turkey for the Thanksgiving dinner. She asks what’s the traditional way of cooking them and what’s the newest culinary approach? Each supper guest is asked to bring a unique dinner plate that will be left behind for the ag center to use for future events (no plastic or resin plates, please). Tickets for the supper were sold out as of Thursday morning, but everyone is still invited to come and participate in the tours and other aspects of the event. Proceeds benefit the restoration of the former Mill Spring School. For more information, or to donate farm foods or auction items, please contact Carol Lynn Jackson at 828-817-2308 or

Finally, they came with their sad, dreaded news... “Lady you need a whole roof—this one’s trash! And we’ll do it right now—see, we brought our crews, If you’ll just give us $4,000 cash.


“What am I ever to do?” she wept, “It’s more than I can afford. Besides, when they trooped to my doorstep, They looked like a Mongol Horde.” “Oh, Lord,” she prayed, “Can you help me out?” “My bedroom will soon be a pond,” she pled. “Please send me an honest, hardworking man (or a drought), So I don’t float away in my bed.” All of a sudden the clouds went away, And the day turned sunny and bright! And a chorus of angels sang, “Do not dismay, Craftsman Services will treat you RIGHT!” In a flash they were there—a professional team, Clean and honest—she couldn’t believe her luck! They fixed two leaky spots and a chimney seam, For a measly $400 bucks. Now the little old lady sleeps all through the night, And happy and dry greets each glorious day! Secure in the knowledge she was treated right, In the Craftsman Services way. (A True Story)

County approves $1.59M bid for DSS construction Total cost for new building estimated at $1.9M by Leah Justice

The final major decision on Polk County’s controversial proposed department of social services (DSS) building has been made. Commissioners on Monday awarded the construction contract to the low bidder, Able Constructors of Greenville, S.C. The bid amount was $1,590,755. Commissioners also approved Monday a resolution to file an application to the N.C. Local Government Commission (LGC) to finance $1.85 million of the project. The total cost of the project is estimated at $1,914,052 once expected reimbursements from federal and state governments are factored in. Some reimbursements will be spread out over the next 45 years (the projected life of the building), while $95,498 is estimated to be reimbursed this fiscal year. (See the article on page 10 for more details.) The bid was approved after the county found out last week that a pump was not needed at the proposed building because the water pressure from the well was found to be sufficient. Because the two lowest bids were very close, the results of the pressure test were needed to determine the lowest bidder. If a pump had been needed, MV Momentum Construction, LLC of Charlotte would have been the low bidder. Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson says the water pressure test revealed that the well produces 1,250 gallons per minute. The well needed to produce a minimum of 1,000 gallons per minute in order to

stotts2009 - page 42

provide sufficient water without a pump and generator. Commissioner Tommy Melton was the sole vote against both decisions this week. “Several months ago I wanted to keep the building at 10,000 square feet or less and wanted the budget to be $1.5 million,” said Melton. “So, for that I will not be able to vote in favor.” Commissioner Renee McDermott said she disagrees with Melton, saying that the Womack building was not large enough for county services by the time construction was complete. The county had to purchase three additional buildings because the building had not been constructed to meet future needs, she said. “It’s so much better to plan ahead than to look back and see that you made a huge mistake,” McDermott said. The size of the building has been a topic of controversy recently. Commissioners Walker and Gasperson have joined McDermott, saying they want to plan for the future. They have made projections of the future growth of DSS and say they want the building to last 45 years. But commissioners Melton and Warren Watson have said the building is about 1,000 square feet too large. According to estimates, the building will have between seven and nine more offices than the current DSS utilizes. They have said that DSS should not be a facility the county encourages to grow; instead, they say, the county should be working to reduce the number of residents who utilize the service. Walker, Gasperson and McDermott have said that DSS helps not only Medicaid re(Continued on page 9)

cipients but also many more residents such as the elderly and children. They say those and other needs will continue to grow in the county. The building will be constructed at 11,900 square feet and will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified, which is expected to save only utility costs over the lifetime of the building. The county also agreed on Monday to seek financing for the building. The LGC will first have to approve the county borrowing money for the project, which Whitson said won’t be an issue because of the county’s low debt and history of paying off debts. Whitson estimates that the county should be able to obtain a 4.10 percent loan with debt service beginning in December, 2011. The county anticipates taking out a 15-year loan on the project, with the first year's payment being $161,258, which includes $37,925 in interest and an annual $123,333 principal. Polk will also be reimbursed for the interest portion of the loan through state and federal reimbursements at a rate of 61 percent or an approximately $185,074 reimbursement over the life of the loan. Ernie Smith expressed concern that the county did not choose a local contractor. Commissioner Cindy Walker commented that local sub-contractors are being used for the grading portion of the project and Ray Gasperson said by law the county is required to select the lowest bidder because it is being funded with taxpayer money. Grading for the project has begun on county recreation complex property off Wolverine Trail in Mill Spring. No estimates of when construction of the actual building will begin have been given, but officials have said in the past they anticipate construction to begin by the end of the year.

Polk County is expecting to spend $1,914,052 on a new DSS building to be constructed on county owned recreation park acreage off Wolverine Trail in Mill Spring. Polk could be reimbursed $95,498 this fiscal year – 61 percent of costs associated with professional services, including architect's fees ($139,000), project management fees ($4,845), surveying costs ($4,200) and advertising/printing costs ($8,508). Other costs are also reimbursed on a 61 percent basis, with some reimbursements coming annually over a 45-year period, or the expected life of the building. Over the next 45 years, the TBAP-033564


county is expecting $23,800 annually in reimbursements, which will equate to $1,071,001 over the next 45 years. The total reimbursement, including the $95,498 the county should receive this year and the $23,000 annually, will mean the total cost of the building to the county 45 years from now could be $747,552. Some residents and commissioners took issue with the reimbursement numbers this week, saying the county needs to look at the building as costing $2 million, or more than that including interest on a loan. Polk approved a $2 million budget ordinance for the building earlier this year. With that budget, the county will have $85,948 left to spend on furniture, which some say is not enough. Other estimates have indicated that furniture will cost $150,000. The county will also receive reimbursements on furniture, however, at a rate of 61 percent over seven years. If the county spends $85,948 to furnish the building, it could be reimbursed $52,444 over a seven year period, or $7,492 per year. Other costs for the building are expected to come in, such as further cost for the project manager and advertising and printing. The county this week approved the low bidder for the construction of the building as well as a resolution to seek financing. Grading has already begun on the project.

Polk fund balance getting too high, Whitson says County looks to pay off $2M loan by Leah Justice

Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson said this week that the county’s fund balance, which is estimated at 33 percent of its general fund, is getting too high. The county’s current fund balance as of June 30, 2010 is estimated at $6,930,171, or 33.3 percent of its general fund. Polk won’t know the audited figures until mid November, when auditors are scheduled to make a presentation. Whitson suggested commissioners may want to consider paying off an estimated $2 million loan.

Commissioners discussed the county’s fund balance Monday while approving a resolution to seek approximately $1.85 million in financing for a new department of social services (DSS) building. Since the state and federal governments will reimburse the county for an estimated 61 percent of the interest the county pays on a loan for DSS construction expenses, Whitson said it may be smart to pay off an existing loan that paid for the middle school, recreation park and transfer station a few years ago. Whitson said although he is a proponent of “no debt,” he thinks the county should finance the DSS building be-

cause of the reimbursements on interest. He said the county is not making a lot of money on funds in the bank in the current economy and the county could take its current fund balance to pay off the remaining approximately $2 million left on the existing loan. Whitson cautioned on Monday that the state could be looking at county budgets to balance their own. He said he saw that recently with the county’s mental health entity, Western Highlands. Although the state did not take money out of Western Highland’s bank account, the state did withhold normal revenues and told Western Highlands to use its fund balance instead.

If the county paid off the other loan, it would still have an estimated fund balance of 21 to 22 percent, which is sufficient, Whitson said. The county currently has total debt of $16,099,000 with the debt expected to drop to $14,460,000 by the end of this fiscal year. If the county borrows $1.85 million for the DSS construction, the county’s debt would be back up to $16,310,000. Then, if the other loan is paid off the debt would drop to $14,200,000, according to Whitson’s figures on Monday. Whitson said when he was first hired as county manager in 2007, the county’s debt was $23 million.

They’re currently organizing citizens with business experience to help attract and mentor local business people and start-ups. In addition, we need a director, someone who can devote full time to economic development and jobs retention and creation in our county. I have a proven record of supporting Agricultural Economic Development. Additionally, I voted to provide public water and other critical funding requests needed for its businesses incubator facility. I will continue to support top notch education, both at the public schools and community college levels. It’s critical to have a well trained work force available for new businesses.

He’s not satisfied with just doing things ‘the same old way.’ Ray discusses those solutions with other Commissioners, staff and other citizens.

that would provide jobs at a pay scale that would allow our young people to be able to afford to live and work here at home. Replenish the fund to help the type industry we want to locate in Polk County, such as James Tool. Also, as one member of the EDC has suggested, getting private citizens to invest in a building that could be easily renovated to accommodate the needs of a prospective industry. I would ensure the state agencies that are involved in economic development that Polk County is sincere in wanting and needing their help.

Benny Smith Polk County has an Economic Development Commission made up of volunteers who recently met certification requirements to give us the title of a “Certified Entrepreneurial Community”. Administered by Advantage West, the regional economic developer, this program works with local communities to develop and implement a custom plan for growth. Since most of jobs are created by small business, we must do everything possible to encourage entrepreneurs with start-ups and expansions. Working with both the North Carolina Department of Commerce and Advantage West, we can showcase Polk County with the ultimate goal to secure jobs for our citizens.

Tom Pack We need a paid economic development person if we are going to get serious about bringing jobs to Polk County. We need to 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 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.

Warren Watson With or without an EDC director, I would support continued efforts by St. Luke’s Hospital to develop & recruit a network of health care providers to the County. I would also focus on the equine industry, by encouraging the EDC to develop a National Equine Center, which would be a catalyst for related services. I would support agricultural industry research and development opportunities. Health care, equine, specialized veterinary care and agricultural research would be linked to an education component through Isothermal Community College and our University networks which could provide local and on-line training. I would also recruit green energy companies. The related job growth would be a catalyst for housing construction, and for moderate growth in retail, restaurants and lodging.

Advice in Physical Therapy Month: Incontinence, unspoken epidemic Editor’s note: The following information about physical therapy was submitted by PRO Physical Therapy in recognition of October, which is National Physical Therapy Month. by Erin Alley, MSPT

Misconception #4: “I am a 75-year-old man. I guess this incontinence is what I get for trying to stay active.” Although the incidence of incontinence in people 64 years of age and older is much greater in women, the incidence of problems in men 65 and older is rising as a result of the rising number of prostate problems. Misconception #5: “I am tired of waking up four to five times a night to go to the bathroom, but I guess it is just my age.” Wrong. Normal frequency of nighttime toileting in people 65 and younger is zero. In people 65 and older, normal frequency is 1-2 times a night. Incontinence is not a secret you have to live with, nor should you. Many people spend more than $1000 year on pads and products to deal with incontinence. Incontinence is second only to dementia for nursing home admission. If left untreated, incontinence has serious psycho-social ramifications: depression, social isolation and activity restrictions, to name a few.

Incontinence, the involuntary loss of urine or feces, is a widespread problem that often goes unspoken. Incontinence affects not just elderly women and men but also children and pre menopausal women as well. Of children ages 8-16, 10 to 15 percent experience problems with incontinence. Of women ages 25-55, 25 percent experience some form of leaking. The percentage rises with age: 35 percent of people 65 and older and 50 to 70 percent of homebound people or residents of nursing homes experience incontinence. So why the silence? Bowel and bladder problems are often considered private, very personal and embarrassing matters. And, thanks to many misconceptions, many people consider incontinence “normal.” It is quite common for people to keep their “leaking” to themselves and not even bring the matter up with family, friends or physicians. Misconception #1: “Johnny (who is 10 years old) will just grow out of his bed wetting problem.” Bedwetting in children older than five years is not normal. Misconception #2: “It’s normal to leak on occasion when I run, jump, sneeze or cough. I have two children.” Leaking greater than three months post partum is not normal. Misconception #3: “I hate these urges I am having, but I guess it is all part of menopause, so I’ll have to live with it.” Problems with urge incontinence during menopause can arise, but can be successfully treated with lifestyle changes and specific exercises.

National Teen Driver Safety Week runs Oct. 17-24 Amos Johnson misses his daughter Ashley. He thinks about her every day. He loved her. He always will. When Ashley began driving, Amos taught her the ropes. Obey the speed limit, always use your signals and put the cell phone down. But sometimes people forget. In May, Ashley forgot. Authorities said, she hit a truck head-on while retrieving a text message that caused her to be distracted. “I hear stories like this all the time and it breaks my heart,” said Gov. Bev Perdue. “Young drivers must learn that their lives – and the lives of others – are more important than making somebody wait a few minutes for the answer to a text message.” Today, Perdue urges young drivers to pay attention when behind the wheel as part of National Teen Driver Safety Week, which runs October 17 through 24. The N.C. Department of Transporta-

tion has produced videos focusing on the dangers teens face while behind the wheel. One video features Amos sharing Ashley’s story. The videos can be found at ncdot. gov and on the department’s YouTube page. “It’s important for everyone to watch Mr. Johnson’s story, and learn from it,” Perdue said. Perdue said distracted driving is a major concern with teenagers because of the popularity of electronic devices like cell phones. In 2009, 126 teen drivers died in traffic crashes. Eight of those fatalities were caused by a distraction. More than 8,000 wrecks involving teens were the result of distracted driving. Since Ashley’s death, Amos has been telling her story to make young drivers pay attention to the road. He said he wants teenagers to learn from her mistake. “Driving is a privilege,” he said. “Pay attention to what you’re doing. There are so many things that can happen.” For more information about teen driving safety, visit or – article submitted

Spears performs in Saluda Oct. 22 Seasoned performer and touring troubadour, musical artist Doug Spears returns to The Wine Cellar at the Saluda Inn Friday, October 22 at 7 p.m. Spears blends elements of contemporary folk, Americana, bluegrass, country and folk rock. Spears has invested more than 35 years developing his craft. Often drawing comparisons to some of the best-known and well-established artists of the genre, Spears has carved a special niche for himself in folk and Americana music. Spears was born in Leesburg, Fla., and he says his best childhood memories tie back to the farmhouse his grandfather built in Lake County in the 1920s. He took up the guitar at age 12, learning on an old Gibson J-45 loaned to him by a family friend, and soon began writing his own songs heavily influenced by the wealth of songwriter poets of the time. Spears’ song craft matured into a weaving of lyric portraits capturing the essence of the

Flat Rock Playhouse presents Neil Simon’s award-winning comedy “The Prisoner of Second Avenue” onstage October 27 through November 21. This bittersweet comic masterpiece follows a New York couple unraveling under the pressures of city life. Mel Edison is a recently unemployed ad man who is driven to the brink of a nervous breakdown by New York City living. In an attempt to escape from a garbage strike, nosy neighbors and an unreliable air conditioner in the middle of a heat wave, Mel and his sympathetic wife Edna visit his brother in the country. Unfortunately, the dark cloud of tribulation seems to follow Mel in this comic nightmare. Mel simply can’t believe that his career is over, especially when he’s nowhere near the age of retirement. Also, he’s from the old school where the wife stayed at home while the husband goes out and provides for the family. When Edna goes to work it causes Mel’s downward spiral to escalate. His perfect world continues to crumble making him hostile towards everyone; his family, friends, his wife, the upstairs neighbor and Mel’s desire to get even increases. The playhouse production of “The Prisoner of Second Avenue” will be directed by Paige Posey, who proves to be a multifaceted artist, as she’s not only directing but also playing a role in the show. Continuing the standard of mixing the professional artistry of local performers with those based regionally and out of NYC, the playhouse has cast Jane Bushway, Peter Thomasson, and Saundra Cuyler – actors who have long standing ties to Henderson County. Introducing to the Flat Rock audience is Ken Krugman, who will play Mel Edison, and Trish Gorman, who plays his wife, Edna. One of America’s favorite playwrights, Neil Simon has been relieving audiences of their

Letter to the Editor

Liars and taxes To the Editor: Ray Gasperson says, “Since 2009, because of a tax decrease, the taxpayers of Polk County saved over $1,500,000 in property taxes. The Association of County Commissioners declared this as the greatest decrease in all 100 North Carolina counties.” Tom Pack accused Mr. Gasperson of lying at the last county commissioner meeting, saying that county revenues increased, therefore the tax rate must have increased. There are, of course, a number of reasons why the revenues may have increased that are not related to the tax rate. First of all, the tax base grew. Second, tax collection

became more efficient. For example, some people who owned boats, and even airplanes, were not paying the legally required property taxes on them. Now they are. There are, of course, further reasons. The point is that Mr. Gasperson is telling the truth. And we are privileged to live in a county that is solvent and financially well managed during these economically challenging times. The current board deserves accolades, not negative criticism, for their fiscal management. The question is: does Mr. Pack really believe in his faulty reasoning, that increased revenues must equal increased taxation, or is he knowingly deceiving us? Either way, it brings his qualification for county commissioner into serious question. – Erik Bundy

Youth Center at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, October 24. The speaker will be Reverend James D. Johnson. His topic will be “How Is Your Spiritual DNA?” Johnson asks, “We are becoming more and more aware of our physical DNA and its effects on our lives, but what specific thought have we given to our spiritual DNA and its actual and potential effect on our lives? We can’t, of course, study our spiritual DNA under a microscope as we study physical DNA. We have to seek answers and understanding elsewhere. Human beings, from our earliest ancestors to the present, have traveled many long roads seeking to understand who and what we are beyond our physical beings with our physical needs. Over the eons of time we humans have worshipped many

He continues, “Our physical DNA goes back many generations. Our spiritual DNA also has a long process of growth and development – at least our growth of understanding our spiritual DNA has been a long process. We will explore teachings and declarations of some religions and religious leaders about who we are spiritually and what that may mean for the contents of our spiritual DNA. We will explore ways we can strengthen our spiritual DNA and what it can mean in our lives and the lives of others.” There will be an open discussion following the service.

Letter to the Editor

What would Jesus say? To the Editor: This letter is written in my capacity as a Board member of the Polk County Department of Social Services. I was out of state on a business trip and could not attend the AAUW Candidates Forum. But I’m told that at the Forum, a question was asked about the new DSS building. I was also told that one of the unaffiliated candidates answered that the new building should not be built with room to expand, because “we don’t want to grow welfare”, and that having room to grow implies we “want to grow welfare.” I’m told that the other unaffiliated candidate, and all of the Republican candidates, “chimed in.” There are so many things wrong with that attitude. First, to equate the services of the Department of Social Services with simple “welfare” is erroneous and prejudicial. Yes, DSS helps those who are hungry and without shelter. And in these tough economic times, there’s more need than ever. But DSS does so much more. DSS assists with foster care and adoptions. It has training classes for those wonderful people who take children into their homes when in need. DSS provides both child and adult protective services. Yes, sometimes children or the elderly are abused in their households or are not adequately cared for. DSS is there to help and care for those people in their times of need. DSS works with many of our other public and private agencies to make Polk County a safer, more caring place to live. No one wants the need for DSS’ services to expand. But as our population expands, and as the tough economic times drag on, it makes no sense to deny the inevitable and, deliberately,

not plan for it. That’s simply bad management and the result of inappropriate prejudice. To all those unaffiliated and Republican candidates who took this position, I ask the questions: What if Jesus came to you and said I’m hungry? Would you respond, “Too bad, go away, we don’t want to grow welfare?” If Jesus came to you without a place to stay for the night, would you send Jesus away saying “Sorry, it’s against Polk County policy to ‘grow welfare’”? In fact, that’s exactly what you’re suggesting we do. In Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus taught about those who do or don’t provide those in need with food, drink, shelter, and clothing. Those Jesus was teaching asked, “’Lord, when saw we thee [hungry], or [thirsty], or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?’ And Jesus answered them saying, ‘Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.’” Which path shall we take in Polk County? – Renée McDermott

One man's trash is another's treasure Once upon a time, not

so long ago, a local couple

happened upon a skinny little Appaloosa mare in a dirt lot. Her owner no longer wanted to trail ride her; she wasn’t needed any more. Luckily this couple knew a few things about horses and decided to take her home with them and find the little mare a new family. Some extra food, good grass and a few trail rides later this couple put an ad up in the local feed store. At this very same time, a sweet “horse crazy” young girl had convinced her parents to let her take some riding lessons. She caught the bug and now dreamed of having her own horse. After some poking and prodding her parents answered an ad they found at the local feed store: an Appaloosa mare – for sale! The little girl, whose name is Amanda, met the little mare, who’s name is Nia, and as most dreams happen (when they come true) it was destined they be together.

St. Luke’s Rehab offers free balance screening October 28 October named National Physical Therapy Month October is designated as National Physical Therapy Month. Physical therapists evaluate and treat patients with injury, disease or impairment. Their goal is twofold – ensure patients return to optimal function and prevent future impairments. In recognition of Physical Therapy Month, St. Luke’s Outpatient Rehab will offer a Fall Risk Screening and Conditioning Program using the Biodex Balance SD System on Thursday, October 28, from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. This system enables the rehabilitation team at St. Luke’s Hospital to perform balance testing and identify fall risk candidates, determine ankle and knee status, and determine limits of stability. This system also provides balance training including stabilization exercises and weight shift exercises and activities. St. Luke’s says it sees many patients because of fall-related injuries. Falls and fall related injuries seriously affect older adults’ quality of life. They also cause painful debilitating injuries for older adults. With the Biodex Balance SD System, St. Luke’s Rehab therapists can identify and modify the factors that lead to falls among older adults. Certain people are at high risk for accidental falls and should be regularly screened to help reduce the high number of fall-related injuries and deaths in the United States, a new guideline says. “People need to know that falls are preventable, and there are simple tests to determine if you’re at risk of falling,” Scott McDermott, director of rehabilitation services

said. “It’s important to discuss falls, since some people can face serious life consequences after falling. These include disability and loss of independence which may be averted only through fall prevention.” “Physical therapy is the evaluation, treatment, and prevention of disability, injury, and disease using physical, mechanical, and chemical treatments,” explains McDermott. “Treatment may include ultrasound, massage, therapeutic activities, joint mobilization, therapeutic exercise and neuromuscular re-education.” The primary goal of physical therapy is to relieve pain and to restore optimal movement and function. Specific physical therapy objectives can include: • Minimize pain and swelling; • Promote healing; • Restore joint range of motion; • Increase muscle strength and endurance; • Decrease muscle spasm; • Increase coordination and function; • Correct gait and postural deviations; • Patient and family education. St. Luke’s Hospital’s physical therapists can treat a wide variety of problems from non-surgical to surgical, including: joint replacements (hips, knees, shoulders); neck and back injuries; shoulder problems (fractures, surgeries, rotator cuff tears, tendonitis); muscle sprains and strains; gait and balance safety training to restore independence; neurological problems such as strokes and Parkinson’s Disease. For more information about the benefits of physical therapy or to schedule a free balance screening, call 828-894-8419. St. Luke’s Hospital Outpatient Rehabilitation Center is located at 799B West Mills Street in Columbus. – article submitted

Letter to the Editor

Want to take a walk? To the Editor: This morning I had the pleasure of a walk around the track at Harmon field. I resisted walking when I first thought of it, It is cold, it is breezy , my feet will hurt and I will be breathing heavy; were all excuses that I had to cut through to make it happen . I need to walk each day (even though I don’t walk most days), because I am blessed with a warm house and television, a warm office to work from and an abundance of good food. I love all these things so I have to walk.

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

I finally worked up my determination and began stretching, then started the slow walk to begin my journey. I planned to walk about a mile. With the first step, the breeze blew through the leaves of the trees lining Harmon field road and urged me on with a chorus “Ahhh Yes.” My scowl that had worked its way up to my face from all the thoughts of an upcoming unpleasant experience began to melt. I took some more steps and rounded the first turn and heard the birds singing and watched the killdeer zig-zagging across the soccer field scolding me for disrupting their morning breakfast of worms and grass critters. By the time I completed the first lap my thoughts moved to the upcoming Foothills CROP Walk.

Being a CROP Walker, supporter and organizer for many years I have few facts that are embedded in my head. As I reached the half mile lap breathing heavily, I contemplated the children and women in Africa who walk miles to carry home the 3-5 gallons of water they use per day. No time in most countries of the world for education of the children, they are hauling water or boiling it because it maybe contaminated. 200 million hours spent each day collecting and processing water. Most people in developing countries use less water per day than I flush down the toilet in one use (4-7 gallons). As I walked on I thought of all the folks who are displaced by wars and disasters and the miles



they walk to find a safe place to sleep out in the cold. I thought;”I walk because I am too fat, and too sedentary, because I am blessed, they walk just to exist. I keep walking and the steps seemed lighter and before I knew it I had walked a mile and a half. I began to see the blessings around me the sight, sounds, smells the good mornings of fellow walkers and runners, this was actually a blessing. How about it? Want to take a walk? The Foothills CROP Walk begins 2 p.m. at Harmon Field, Sunday, November 7 contact your church, class, club or business representative and find out how you can share the blessings of walking and change the world. – Lance Smith

It isn’t news to local residents that North Carolina mountains are well-known for spectacular fall colors. Hendersonville Community Band will present its own “Fall Colors” on Sunday afternoon, October 24 at 3 p.m., in Blue Ridge Conference Hall at Blue Ridge Community College in Flat Rock. Conductors Fern Barber and Walter Moore will direct a program of Broadway tunes, a tango, symphony overtures and marches. All the colors of concert band music. “The Liberty Bell March” by John Philip Sousa is a rousing opener for a lively program. Selections from Walt Disney’s “Mary Poppins” by Richard and Robert Sherman continues the upbeat tempo. Originally a 1964 musical film with Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, “Mary Poppins” is now playing on Broadway. HCB conductor Walt Moore reminds the audience, “Surely you’ll remember ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.’” The mood changes with Leroy Anderson’s “Blue Tango.” The concert band continues with “Finale from Symphony in F Minor No. 4” by Tschaikowsky and

To the Editor: It was with some interest that I watched the Q&A between Congressman Heath Shuler and his wannabe replacement, Jeff Miller, on WLOS Thursday night. Mr. Miller admitted he had not read the Cap-and-Trade law to which he was opposed, but he had read (inaudible)--probably the TeaPastry cherry-picked talking points. Congressman Shuler, on the other hand, had read the entire bill-which is why he supported it. When it came to the gigantic Healthcare bill, Mr. Miller seemed surprised that Congressman Shuler had read it, which had taken some 12 hours to read--counting time

closes the first half with “March of the Steel Men” by Charles S. Belsterling. After intermission Fern Barber opens with the “Second Suite in F for Military Band” by Gustav Holst. The euphonium section is featured in its opening march. According to conductor Barber, “Every section of the concert band is challenged in the first movement of Vittorio Giannini’s ‘Symphony No. 3.’” Choirs of clarinet, French horn, trumpet and trombone are featured in this piece. Halloween comes to mind with the ominous sounds of “March to the Scaffold” from “Symphonie Fantastique” Op. 14 by Berlioz, transcribed by Erik Leidzen. It ends with an eerie, final sound of despair from the solo clarinet. HCB’s “Fall Colors” closes with “Under the Double Eagle,” by J.F. Wagner. Although not his composition, John Philip Sousa called this march a favorite. Advance tickets for Fall Colors are available from band members, Laurel Park Wine Market and the visitors information center. Tickets will also be available at the door.

to reflect One assumes that the Republican opponent, again, had not read the entire bill, but only the TeaParty cherry-picked talking points. Do the citizens of the 11th Congressional District really want a Congressman representing us-and passing bills into laws--when he cannot even be bothered to read the documents in question? Can we truly rely on him to represent our interests adequately when he cannot be bothered to be fully informed on bills and laws to which he claims to object? Or do we want a Congressman who takes the time to be fully informed on the issues? It is with great eagerness that I look forward to hearing more from these gentlemen. – Bill Holcomb

Letter to the Editor

Medical costs bear close scrutiny To the Editor: Everyone is concerned about the spiraling costs of medicine. It’s not only the cost of medical insurance but also the cost of provider services. I have been a strong supporter of the care and services of St. Luke’s Hospital for many years and have written letters to the TDB stating the excellent treatment I received as a patient. I take particular interest in our local hospital because it’s very important to have a medical center close by. It draws more doctors to our area and provides good jobs to the community. I consider St. Luke’s a member of our community so my discussing the following situation is done with a great deal of trepidation.

Recently a family member had a routine screening procedure at St. Luke’s Hospital. The service was excellent, the cost was not. After receiving a bill with no detailed explanation on the costs I decided to look into the matter further. I was told the hospital does not provide detailed cost information unless you request it. So I requested the data and now I understand why detailed costs are absent with the bill. I felt the costs were outrageous, just my opinion of course. So I decided to gather cost data from other hospital facilities with a 100 mile radius of St. Luke’s. I also gathered data from hospitals in major metropolitan areas such as Raleigh, New York City and Los Angeles. To my surprise St. Luke’s charges, excluding the surgeons fee, were 2 to 3 times higher than other hospitals highest cost category, not average cost. On closer scrutiny of St.

and wait another 48 hours for someone to call me. The manager was in a meeting and told her assistant to tell me that she would call me in the afternoon. After staying home all afternoon waiting for the call that never came, I called her. I got her voice mail and since it was obvious I wasn’t going to talk to her I decided it was a waste of time pursuing the matter further. The lesson I learned from this particular experience is that you should shop around for the most reasonable price for your procedure. I did that, after the fact, and found 2 hospitals within 25 miles that would have done the procedure for less than half the cost of St. Luke’s. Although this appears to be good news, it saddens me to possibly not to use St. Luke’s in the future just based on cost. Cost isn’t everything but a cost factor of 2 to 3 times can be a show stopper. – Karl Kachadoorian

Happy 17th Birthday


Luke’s costs I was astounded to find that the cost for anesthesiology was twice what the surgeon charged, over $2000, and there were other costs that looked excessive. The total bill, sans surgeons fee, was over $5000. Based on my findings I decided to go to hospital administration to see how they could justify their costs for this medical procedure. Typically when you call Administration you are sent to a recording and told to leave a message and they would get back to you in 48 hrs.. So I persisted my calling to get though and asked to talk to the department manager who set up a meeting to discuss my concerns. She had no explanation and asked that I give her 5 days to research the bill and she would get back to me. Five days passed and not even a phone call. On the morning of 10th day I went to the hospital since I didn’t want to leave a message

IT NEVER HURTS TO KEEP AN EYE ON ELECTED OFFICIALS! october 18, 2010 at the BoC meeting, our Commissioners voted 4 to 1 to sign a contract for the new dss building to be built at a price of $1.85 million dollars. Now they are going to start searching for financing from a bank or banks to cover the loan. When i was a child this type behavior was called “getting the cart before the horse.” I have always had to secure financing prior to signing the contract, but then i don’t have the power to raise taxes to cover my lack of financial judgment.

about the ERRP. If, however, your employer is not offering early-retiree health coverage, you may be able to purchase an individual or family policy if you’re healthy (see or to search for policies and costs), or if your health isn’t so good, you can use the COBRA law. Under COBRA, companies that employee 20 or more workers must let employees – after they leave the job – continue the same group coverage for themselves and their families for up to 18 months. But, it’s very expensive. You’ll have to pay the full monthly premium yourself, plus a 2 percent administrative fee. If you have COBRA coverage for at least 18 months (with no breaks in coverage for 63 days or more), you’ll then qualify for rights under HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), another law that gives you the right to buy individual health insurance that doesn’t exclude or limit coverage for pre-existing medical conditions. Contact your state insurance department (find the number at or visit coverageforall. org for details.

The new PCIP, which is available in every state, will run alongside the existing state pools but will provide better and more affordable coverage. While premiums will vary by state and are age-adjusted, those enrolled in a PCIP won’t pay more than a healthy person would pay in that state. A 50-year-old, for example, may pay between $320 and $570 per month. For more information on how the PCIP works in your state or to apply, go to or call your state department of insurance.

Dear Savvy Senior, I’ve read that Uncle Sam recently developed some new programs that can help early retirees who aren’t yet eligible for Medicare, as well as highrisk uninsured people. What can you tell me about this? Wanting To Retire Dear Wanting, For early retirees who aren’t old enough for Medicare and who can’t afford or don’t qualify for an individual health insurance policy, help is now available through two new programs. Here’s what you should know. Early Retirement Help If you’re looking at retiring before you’re eligible for Medicare, the federal government recently developed a temporary new program called the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) that may help you keep your employer’s health coverage. As part of the health care reform law, this new program will dole out $5 billion to employers – public, private and nonprofit – to help offset their costs of providing health care coverage for their early retirees ages 55 to 64 and their families. The program began in July and will continue until Jan. 1, 2014 when health insurance reform kicks in. At that point you’ll be able to buy affordable health insurance from insurance exchanges, and you can’t be turned down for pre-existing health conditions. Ask your benefits manager or human resources department

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. Keeping Documents Safe Q. Where should I keep my estate planning documents? a. In North Carolina only the original will may be presented for probate. Lack of an original will causes problems and administrative delays at the very least and for that reason, your will should be secured in a safe place. a bank safe deposit box may not be the best place since banks may seal the box upon your death. Many clients prefer their attorneys store the will to assure its availability for probate and they retain a copy for their records. If you do this, make sure the copy of your will bears a legend stating where the original may be located. More than one trust agreement may be executed; duplicate or even triplicate originals may be stored in different locations. It is never a good idea to write on or attempt to revise your documents. Later entries on a will or trust create uncertainty with respect to the intent of the creator requiring lengthy court proceedings to resolve. Call (828) 696 1811 for info on this or other planning sass-032291 techniques.
