Senate bill could hurt area farms Polk sends letter asking for special provisions for small farms by Leah Justice

Some Polk officials cautioned county commissioners last week that proposed U.S. Senate Bill 510 could put some Polk County farmers “out of business.” The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (Senate Bill 510) currently being proposed would amend the federal food, drug and cosmetic

act. It would give the Secretary of Health and Human Services the authority to inspect records related to food. The amendment has been proposed in a time when foods have been recalled because of sickness and deaths, most recently eggs, spinach and tomatoes. Some officials have expressed concerned that it could result in high inspection fees for small farmers. Polk County commissioners last week approved sending a letter to

legislators in response to the bill. The letter says that Polk County supports “the concern for food safety, but the implementation of any program should have special provisions

for the small farmers who cannot afford large corporation fees for the food safety program.” (See page 4 for the full letter.) “We strongly encourage that any implementation for small farms be carried out at the local level through local agencies and resource specialists,” states

Polk County’s letter. Commissioners heard from Polk County Agricultural Economic Development Director Lynn Sprague, who recommended they send the letter. Polk County Cooperative Extension Director John Vining and residents David Weiss,

Emily Clark, Lisa Krolack and Eric Gass also spoke on the subject. Sprague said the 200-page bill addresses food safety and said international food sources do need control. He said the bill (Continued on page 4)

Editor's note: The following is a letter sent by the Polk County Board of Commissioners to U.S. legislators regarding a bill being considered by the Senate (see front page story) The Polk County Board of Commissioners have been asked to respond to SB 510, the “Food Safety Bill.” Polk County, a small county of less than 20,000 residents, has determined that keeping the county rural and agricultural is a top priority and entrepreneurial agricultural businesses a way to increase the economy. Food safety is a concern for everyone and as we have seen, several cases of food contaminations have produced health hazards and have devastated the farm economy for targeted crops, even affecting Polk County. We support the

concern for food safety, but the implementation of any program should have special provisions for the small farmers who cannot afford large corporation fees for the food safety program. We strongly encourage that any implementation for small farms be carried out at the local level through local agencies and resource specialists. To encourage a full discussion of SB 510 and its impact on our local farmers, we would be glad to participate in any forums or hearings regarding the issues. Again, we support food safety and hope this effort provides mechanisms to accomodate the small farm operations. Please contact us if you would like additional information on how this bill will affect Polk County. — Cindy Walker, Chair

is “immense” and approaches agriculture as a uniform business. “I don’t think anyone should be against food safety,” Sprague said, but added that the bill could mean $600 inspection fees for small farmers. Vining said some of the proposals would put a “high percentage of our farmers out of business,” including those that would require well water be used for irrigation. Vining said he doesn’t know what the answer is because the country has to have food safety and the intention is good, but

what the government has come up with is just not practical. Some people mentioned a resolution recently adopted by Macon County, which opposed the bill and suggested that small farmers be exempt from the regulations. Polk commissioners said at this point they are comfortable approving the letter and researching the bill to see if other measures need to be taken later. Residents and Polk officials urged residents to contact legislators regarding any concerns they have with the bill. The bill was sponsored by Illinois Senator Richard Durbin N.C. Senator Richard Burr is a co-sponsor.

A one-stop early voting station and regular board of commissioners meetings in Saluda were two ideas proposed last Thursday by candidates for Polk County commissioner and sheriff at a forum hosted by the Saluda Center (formerly the Saluda Senior Center). Six of the eight candidates for commissioner participated in the forum: Ray Gasperson (Incumbent, D), Margaret Johnson (D), Tommy Melton (Incumbent, Unaffiliated), Ted Owens (R), Benny Smith (D) and Warren Watson (Incumbent, Unaffiliated). Tom Pack (R) and David Moore (R) were unable to attend because of prior commitments, but they sent statements to be read at the forum. Current Polk sheriff Donald Hill (D) and challenger Nathan Shields (R) also participated. Several of the questions audience members posed to candidates dealt with the relationship between Polk County government and Saluda township. To a question asking what the county does for Saluda, Owens replied, “Those of you who live in Saluda Township, if you walked up and asked me what you get for your county taxes,

I’d be hard put to tell you.” He said the joint water authority the county and towns are working on currently would be a big benefit to Saluda, and that the county recreation department needs to do more in Saluda. Many of the candidates agreed that a Polk County water authority would help Saluda, which currently buys its water from Hendersonville and therefore has no control over costs or other issues. Melton suggested that the county board of commissioners should hold its regular meeting in Saluda at least once every two months. He said meetings could also be held periodically in Sunny View and possibly Green Creek. A one-stop early voting location in Saluda was another idea supported by several candidates. “Saluda deserves a one-stop voting area in the next election,” Smith said. Johnson and Gasperson said the county should find ways to support tourism in Saluda and the area in general. Sheriff candidates also handled questions about Saluda services. Asked whether the sheriff’s office has enough (Continued on page 7)

‘Kick Breast Cancer in the Tail’ with Morris the Tryon Horse White Oak of Tryon (formerly White Oak Manor of Tryon) employees paid to dress in pink on Wednesday, October 13. The money raised will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. A contest was held on each shift to find the person who wore the most pink. White Oak Village residents Jacquie Minick and Marianna Whalley were guest judges of the contest. Winners of a free T-shirt were Jennifer Carver, Candy Hopper and T.J. Ledbetter. Black T-shirts featuring Morris the Tryon Horse in hot pink kicking up his heels with the slogan, “Kick Breast Cancer in the Tail,” are now on sale at White Oak of Tryon. Permission for the one time use of Morris was given

by Mary Prioleau, owner of Tryon House and holder of the copyright for Morris. She said, “I am glad to let Morris participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” Mary Lance, administrator of White Oak of Tryon, said, “We started thinking the Tshirt would be for sale just to our employees, but the shirt has caused so much comment that we are willing to take orders and have more printed if people want them; after all, they are one-of-a-kind and could be considered a collector’s item.” All profits from the sale of the shirts will go to benefit Chris Killough, LPN of White Oak of Tryon, who is undergoing extensive treatment for breast cancer. – article submitted

N.C. voters will select judge by Instant Runoff Voting on Nov. 2 North Carolina voters, including those in Polk County, will select a Court of Appeals Judge by Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) on Nov. 2. This method of voting combines the primary and election day into one election. Voters select their first choice for IRV contests like every other contest on the ballot (see sample ballot, p. 11), but they also rank their second or third choices in the event the initial results do not produce a majority winner who received more than 50 percent of the votes cast. Instant Runoff Voting is required if a vacancy is created in the appel-

late judicial offices under certain conditions. In August, the resignation by Judge James A. Wynn Jr. from the NC Court of Appeals to accept an appointment to the U.S. Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit, occurred during the prescribed timeframe for IRV to be used as the voting method for this statewide contest. In IRV elections, voters select their first choice for an office as they have done in previous elections. Additionally, voters may select their second and third choices. The voters’ first choices are tallied and are reported unofficially on

election night. If a candidate gets enough first choice votes to win, more than 50 percent of votes cast, s/he is certified as the winner at canvass and no further counting is necessary. If no candidate receives enough first choice votes to reach the majority threshold (more than 50 percent), the top two candidates move to the instant runoff. The winner is determined by adding the highest ranked second or third choice vote to his/her initial vote totals. The candidate with the most votes in the second round wins the election. If a voter’s first choice candidate

is not in the runoff, a second choice vote for either of the two runoff candidates will be counted. Third choice votes for either runoff candidate will be counted only if the voter’s first or second choice candidate is not in the runoff. After all counting is concluded, the candidate with the most first and second round total votes wins the election. For more information, please contact the North Carolina State Board of Elections by phone, 1-866522-4723 or 919-733-7173, visit the state elections website, www.sboe. state.nc.us, or contact your county board of elections.

Two years is long enough To the Editor: An article in the Bulletin last week stated that a Mr. Stalbach was going to build a restaurant on the property where Crossroads used to be. According to him and Mr. Gasperson he had been working on this for a year. I was wondering why no one heard anything about it till now. Of course the person who did or does own the property says they have misprinted the article, that it’s the property on up highway 9.I guess I’m just a curious person, but I would like to know and maybe others would too. For me, I would like to see it torn down and something else put in its place. I think two years is long enough for something to be a reminder of what used to be a gathering place. – Alma Hare

Letter to the Editor

Partnering is good governance To the Editor: The public/private partnership used by Polk County government to meet the need for an Adult Day Care facility is a model for other communities. This venture is the first of its kind in the area. Polk County government has provided the facility, and completed the necessary renovations to get the facility ready for occupancy. Rutherford Life Services will provide the services. The beauty of this concept is that, with the exception of some utility bills in the first few years, there will be no ongoing expenditures required of the County. The agency will seek its own funding through grants, Medicare, VA, and private pay clients. There will also be help for those who cannot pay and do not otherwise qualify for assistance. A local group of citizens, which we like to call the “Blue Ribbon Committee”, will be soliciting private donations for a scholarship fund for those in need of assistance. The committee’s first year goal is to raise approximately $100,000. In my opinion, this venture shows how effective government can be, if our elected officials

2x5 5/27

will think outside the box. My vision for Polk County includes more of these types of relationships. For instance, I believe the advantages of a joint water authority can be further enhanced by partnering with a larger entity to manage the day-to-day operations of the authority. Polk County is currently partnering with Inman-Campobello Water District to provide management and billing services for the Polk County Water Department, and this relationship has allowed Polk County to keep operating costs for our fledgling water system extremely low. Another excellent example of partnering with other entities to become more effective and efficient is St. Luke’s Hospital. The management agreement with Carolinas Health care System has proven to be the difference in our hospital’s overall financial health. Since this agreement was put into place, and some key strategies have been implemented by the hospital board and the new management team, St. Luke’s has consistently been “in the black,” even in our challenging economy. In my opinion, running a government should be very similar to running a business. Our elected leaders can no longer rely on tax hikes and fee increases to offset the deficits caused by the inefficiencies of poorly managed operations. Instead, we need to build relationships within our County and our Region, and we must seek out opportunities to partner with other local governments and with private entities where it makes good business sense. This is what good governance is all about. – Warren Watson BEAUTIFUL COLUMBUS HOME for sale... like living in the country but 2 minutes from I-26.

After the recent success of Tryon Little Theater’s “Welcome to Mitford,” when every performance sold out, “MonkY Business” producer Betty Brewer is hopeful that it will happen again. When the TLT box office opens October 28 at 10 a.m., TLT volunteers will be ready to take your calls and e-mail requests for tickets to “MonkY Business” by Todd Mueller and Hank Boland, with music and lyrics by Gregg Opelka. Brewer says both shows have a message that may appeal to the religious community. The dominant theme in each show is faith, a topic covered several times in the current musical comedy in rehearsal at TLT. With the ballad “People Believed,” the abbott sings of a time when people were gentler and “believed things.” The toe-tapper “Be Kind to Your Brother” is a ditty about kindness to all, no matter what. People of all faiths will appreciate “Long Distance Calling” when a monk sings about receiving the call to serve God. Brother Brooks sings about his own painful/ beautiful process. From his initial reluctance, to the joyful acceptance of his calling, we learn that this is indeed a man who loves God. In the score by Gregg Opelka, the song stylings run the gamut from country gospel, to blues, to swing, cool jazz (“God Loves a Cheerful Giver”) and even a bit of Argentinian tango.

The Rochester Messenger says, “Go see it and consider yourself blessed!” The Houston Chronicle called it “a musical theater hit à la ‘Nunsense!’” The TLT box office will be open Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and one hour prior to performances, pending ticket availability. “MonkY Business” plays Nov. 11 to 14 and 18 to 21, Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. with two 3 p.m. Sunday matinees. Call 828-859-2466 to leave a message or e-mail ticket requests to tryonlittletheater@gmail.com. Tryon Little Theater is located at 516 S. Trade Street (Hwy 176) in Tryon. Directions to TLT: From Asheville, take I-26 to Exit 67, Hwy. 108 and Hwy. 74. From Spartanburg, take I-26 to Exit 1 (Landrum) Hwy. 14 to Hwy. 176, turn right for 3.3 miles. – article submitted


Letter to the Editor

Where is the justice here? To the Editor: A Polk County man being held in the county jail awaiting trial was not allowed to attend his mother’s funeral. He was given a choice to attend the closed casket funeral or the viewing of her body. He had to chose the viewing in order to see his mother one last time. However, when he spoke with his two minor children about this he then decided to attend the funeral instead of the viewing because he wanted to be there for his sons. After speaking with the chief deputy he was denied the right to change his mind with no reason given. I personally spoke with the county manager about this and he referred me to Sheriff Hill. However I had spoken with Hill in the past and was given orders by him to never call or speak to him again. How can we depend on our law enforcement when they act like this? From colonial times until now, Americans have believed in an old English saying: “ It is better for 99 guilty men to be set free rather than one innocent to be punished.” In the United States, a person accused of a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty. It seems to me that in Polk County that is just the opposite. A man was punished by not being allowed to attend his own mother’s funeral. Put yourself in this situation and imagine if you weren’t allowed to go to your mother’s, father’s or even your own child’s funeral. Where is the justice here? – Pamela Tessnear

Stroke, osteoporosis screening coming to Tryon November 1

“A return to ethical and fiscal responsibility”

one of our top priorities is returning Polk County to a business friendly environment in order to create local jobs. We also promise to reduce government spending which allows you to keep more of your hard earned money! Elect david Moore, ted owens and tom Pack as County Commissioners.

tPaC-039249

Residents living in and around the Tryon community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. The Sandy Plains ARP Church will host Life Line Screening on November 1. The site is located at 350 Sandy Plains Road in Tryon. Appointments will begin at 9 a.m. Four key points every person needs to know: 1. Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability. 2. 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke. 3. Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke. 4. Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient.

For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800697-9721 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required. Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Many sites offer finger-stick blood tests to check for cholesterol and glucose. All five screenings take 60 to 90 minutes to complete. – article submitted

Letter to the Editor

One flag, one nation, one language under God To the Editor: Nathan Shields has been endorsed by the North Carolina Police Benevolent Association as the most experienced candidate in the race for sheriff of Polk county. His is more than qualified to hold the position. He has thirty years of law enforcement experience in North Carolina and South Carolina attaining the highest rank of chief of police. After twenty years in the military in the infantry and military police he retired as first sergeant. Nathan has a bachelor’s degree from Shaw University when he graduated cum laude and an associate’s degree from Arizona Western College. Remember the prisoner who walked out of the courthouse, on Donald Hill’s watch and wasn’t apprehended until ten days later. Nathan will do all in his power to restore honor, respect and dignity to our sheriff’s department. Had enough of wasteful spending and unnecessary extravagance in the DSS building proposals? Vote for realistic, taxpayer friendly county commissioners, Ted Owens, Tom Pack and David Moore. Tom wrote a most persuasive letter outlining, in detail, what the current commissioners are doing in regard to the DSS building and the added expenses which are not necessary for such a functional building. He wants

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

to encourage those in need to use social services on a short term, not depend on help forever. With Owens, Pack and Moore in Commissioner seats, watch our area thrive safeguarding our beautiful, bucolic ambiance while carefully attracting business and jobs for controlled growth. Heath Shuler did not bother to respond to the “N.C. Family Policy Council Voter Guide,” and impartial, nonpartisan look at N.C. candidates. Jeff Miller did. He wasn’t afraid to have his views and possible future votes on a variety of issues displayed. An “up front” honest man whose integrity is very important to him, he is just the “man for the times” we need in Washington. Jeff is not a “blue do” anything. He is a conservative, period. Apple growers who believe Heath Shuler, imported from Tennessee, will help you when you need it, more than Jeff who has lived here his whole life, please think again. We finally have a real contender for the House. Jeff doesn’t have the friends Heath has from unions and outside sources. Passionate American voters will prove money is not the bottom line. Highly regarded in Hendersonville by those knowing him longer and best, we look forward to having a political newcomer, one who will follow and not ignore the Constitution, representing us. Do not become compliant. We need and want everyone of your votes November 2. One flag, one nation, one language under God. – Annette Koluch

Halloween Trick-or-Treating in Columbus Since Halloween falls on a Sunday this year, the Town of Columbus has received numerous questions about when kids should trick or treat for Halloween. While the town does not set rules on this, officials do suggest that children trick or treat on Saturday, October 30, this year. The Columbus Fire Department will distribute apples to trick-or-treaters that night and other safety personnel will be on call to ensure a safe trick-ortreating for all. The Columbus Police Department would like to remind everyone of these tips for safe trick or treating: • Parents, remind your children to look both ways before

crossing the street. • Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glowstick, or has reflective tape on their costume so they can be seen at night. • Younger children should be accompanied by an adult or an older, responsible sibling. • Remind kids to not eat any treats until inspected by an adult. • Remind kids not to enter a strange house or car. • Also, remember to be extra cautious both nights if you are driving. Contact the Columbus Police Department at 828-894-5464 or in person at 117 Walker Street in Columbus if you have any questions. – article submitted

a problem. Ms. Justice never contacted the organizer of the debate to confirm or deny the rumored cancellation. In light of that, I have come to rethink my previous misconception of Leah Justice’s “unbiased” reporting ability. The Polk County 9.12 Project is a non-partisan organization which is dedicated to protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States. Hardly something to fear from a candidate for Sheriff. They do not endorse any party, but seek to find candidates who will commit to adhering to the values of our founding fathers and those documents upon which our country was given birth. I gave my word that I would be present at the debate and I was there. The opposing candidate was not present. And that is a shame because the questions posed at the debate were unbiased, objective, and professional. The spectators were respectful. It would have given the citizens an

opportunity to compare the basic philosophies and future plans for the Sheriff’s office between the two candidates. I do not find anything out of the ordinary for the 9.12 Project or any group that either the incumbent Sheriff, Donald Hill, or I are associated with, to host a debate. In actuality, any debate would favor Sheriff Hill because he is the incumbent Sheriff of Polk County. He is the Sheriff of all citizens of Polk County, even those associated with the 9.12 Project. He is already in the limelight and I have to project my competency and qualification in an effort to sway the vote of the citizens of Polk County to vote for me as Sheriff. I do not believe that I need an unfair political advantage, as my training, education, and experience in law enforcement, as well as military experience will attest to, to win an election. There are, however, apparently those who believe otherwise and it is wrong.

I have served the citizens in the Carolinas and around this wonderful world without regard to religious beliefs, gender, race, ethnicity, political affiliation, age or disability, in an unbiased manner. I have never disliked anyone I have arrested or issued a uniform citation to. It is the illegal or criminal behavior that the individual exhibited I did not like. I have never nor will I ever use that authority of arrest as a vendetta against any lawful person or group, unless the action(s) by the person or group transcends into criminal activity. I use common sense and good old fashioned values, with religious overtones to conduct my actions, as well as my beliefs. I ask each and every citizen of Polk County to look at the Sheriff candidates as just that – not a Democrat or a Republican. Be objective and non-partisan in your decision and make your choice. – Nathan G. Shields
