Opening wider doors to hope Ministry creates long-term women’s counseling program by Samantha Hurst

John and Arlene Hurst trekked the 580 miles from Lancaster, Penn., to make a new home in Columbus, not only for themselves but for young women they’ve never met. The Hursts moved here to become house parents for Hannah House, a new ministry arm of Door of Hope aimed at providing long-term counseling for young women in need. “I think it was definitely a call from God,” John Hurst said. “We had wanted to find a way to minister to people; (Continued on page 6)

Polk Schools expects $1.4M cut; plans to ask county for $300k by Leah Justice

Polk County Schools is planning to ask the county for $300,000 to help make up the shortfall resulting from an expected state funding cut of approximately $1.4 million next year. Polk superintendent Bill Miller told county commissioners Monday, Jan. 24 about the school’s predictions for next year. Miller said there is no way to know for sure exactly what the state will cut,

but the state has asked all state agencies to produce budgets with 5 and 10 percent reductions. “The common sense part I’m using is we all know North Carolina is about 15 percent short, so I have enough common sense to know that if they cut us 7 to 9 percent, they are going to have to cut other agencies higher,” Miller said.

“We want them to know that having a family is not just an idealistic goal for them,” John said. “This is something that does happen even though they may feel they’ve missed out on it in their lives.” The couple plans to create a family atmosphere through regular family meals, prayer time and devotionals, family time playing games, making crafts and taking long walks and even regular household chores. While the Hursts provide healing security at home, counselors will do their part through threehour sessions. “We believe that healing comes through Jesus Christ, so we would offer them His healing,” Hershberger said. Hershberger said a big component of pursuing that healing is forgiveness. She said the girls must get past what people may have done to hurt them. John said he and Arlene felt

drawn to Door of Hope because the ministry looks deeper into a person’s problems than most others. “They look beyond the symptoms – depression we see as a symptom rather than the problem,” he said. “We feel it is there because of a root cause and the ministry tries to heal the person from that place.” For example, John said, if someone is dealing with feelings of abandonment they typically feel that way because of an event in their childhood. The Hannah House program aims to dig down to those root causes and work through them. “We’ll be excited to see girls find healing,” John said. “That’s our goal to help that process along with the counselors.” Door of Hope and the Hursts dream bigger for the future. The current home the ministry rents affords room for at least three girls at a time, while also offering a basement apartment (Continued on page 10)

Arlene has a vision of a household vegetable garden that would act as another teaching tool and as a stress reliever, she said. The overall dream is to also have space to keep farm animals.

The American Red Cross reports that recent inclement weather has resulted in more than 2,700 units of blood that could not be collected because of blood donation center closures, canceled blood drives and the inability of donors to attend blood drives. Donors are encouraged to donate when weather and travel conditions permit. There is a special need for type O and type B blood donors. On Thursday, Feb. 3, the Polk County American Red Cross Chapter, located at 231 Ward Street in Columbus, will hold a blood drive from 2 – 6:30 p.m. Call 828-894-2700 for further information or to schedule your appointment. All presenting donors will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win one of two pairs of roundtrip Delta Airline tickets. On Thursday, Feb. 24, St. Luke Hospital will hold a blood drive in classroom 704, located at 220 Hospital Drive in Columbus, from 12 – 4 p.m. Call 828-894-2408 for further information or to schedule your appointment. All presenting donors will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win one of two pairs

of roundtrip Delta Airline tickets. “Although the winter weather has been challenging, the Red Cross is working diligently to meet the needs of patients in our hospitals,” said Joyce H. Brendel, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region. “We are counting on generous blood donors to make sure that the blood supply is at an adequate level to continue to meet patients’ needs.” The American Red Cross Carolina Blood Services Region provides lifesaving blood to 103 hospitals and must have 1,600 people give blood and platelets each weekday to meet hospital demand. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days. Platelets can be given safely every two weeks, up to 24 times a year.

2x2.5 1/28 melm-041295 Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. How CAn A gift bE A ProbLEM? Q. Can a gift cause unanticipated problems for the recipient? a. sometimes we are asked to draft wills or trusts to “leave my estate to my sister Joan” or “$10,000 to my niece, Mary.” this may not be the wisest thing to do particularly if the recipient is elderly or otherwise receiving governmental assistance. Your gift might disqualify them for benefits or just go to the nursing home for payment for their care. When making a bequest to a person who is or soon will be over 65, it is better to condition the gift on the recipient not residing in a nursing home. We also leave large gifts to the elderly in a special Medicaid trust that will terminate if the elderly or “special needs” recipient permanently resides in a nursing home. Conditioning gifts in this way insures the recipient benefits from it. For answers on this or other estate planning issues call (828) 696-1811.

When I woke up this morning, organization for which I am the “social media guru” and did some I felt like an adult. work there. It was terrible. To be honest, I have no idea I might just be complaining because I woke up, put on my what a “social media guru” does, pants and then started to send but I’m pretty sure it involves me e-mail and the clickety-clack using Facebook. Then I deof the keys felt signed a poster like the sound The for them. of my soul slipModern Age After reping away. turning home Then I with Drew Millard I updated my walked to school, went to class for a few resume (also I have a resume?) hours and went to the student and realized that I have five — count ‘em, five — jobs. In addition to my “social media Strauss & Associates, PA guru” work, I intern at a record Estate Planning label, freelance for two different and Administration publications, including one in Attorneys England, and run three blogs. Preserving and And, oh yeah, I write this Protecting your Assets column. If you add all that stuff up along with classes and homework, I’m pretty sure that adds up to a 40-hour workweek.

SMALL CHiLdrEn Q. How can we make sure that we provide adequately for our small children? a. Both the personal parenting needs and the financial needs of your children need to be addressed.

Your assets and the fate of your children will be up for grabs. the funds for each child will be maintained in a separate account and each child will be treated equally even if they don't have equal needs. all parents should consider carefully how and who will raise their children in the event that they are not able to do so.

I say this facetiously, of course. It’s not like I actually woke up this morning and realized that my carefree days of youth were behind me. I’m still definitely entrenched in my ‘youth-iness,’ but at the same time am living a drastically different lifestyle from that of the fresh-faced Drew Millard who arrived at college obsessed with rap music and worried about not being able to do his own laundry. Well, I’m still obsessed with rap music. But you get the point. I think somewhere between the socializing, laundry, and avoiding homework by staring at a wall, I grew up. And that’s only a little bit terrifying.

Extension men’s cooking class returns in March Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Tryon and North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service – Polk County Center, the men’s cooking class has been a popular spring event since 1986. Men take the course for a variety of reasons – personal interest, increased cooking responsibilities due to loss of or disability of a spouse, and more than one at the urging of his spouse. The course also covers topics such as meal planning, buying and storing food, healthy eating, shopping on a budget, food safety, microwave cooking and special classes on ethnic cooking. No cooking experience is required. Jimmi Buell, extension agent, family and consumer sciences, will be the instructor for the class. There is a fee for the class,

Cooking chores are often shared in today’s households, but that was not always the case. Many men have never had cooking responsibilities until life circumstances thrust cooking chores upon them. The Tryon Kiwanis Club/ Cooperative Extension Men’s Cooking Class offers a fun and friendly way for any man to learn basic skills, whether cooking is a new responsibility or a new interest. The 2011 Men’s Cooking Class begins Tuesday, March 1 from 9 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., and runs for 10 weeks on Tuesday mornings at the extension center in Columbus. Each class includes instruction, hands-on practice and a lunch prepared by class members. The class ends in May with a gala graduation ceremony and luncheon at the Stone Hedge Inn.

Appliance Packages also Available in Stainless and Other Colors!

Lady Wolverines nearly upset Mt. Heritage by Joey Millwood

The last time the Polk County girls basketball team faced Mountain Heritage, it wasn’t pretty. Mountain Heritage handed the Lady Wolverines a 51-point loss. On Friday night, Jan. 21, the Lady Wolverines showed how far they’d come this season. This time on their home court, the Lady Wolverines played inspired defense, but couldn’t come up with enough offense in a 44-37 loss to the Lady Cougars. “I thought we played great defense tonight,” head coach Craig Culbreth said after the game. The Lady Wolverines definitely showed improvement. A big part of that improve-

ment was handling Mountain Heritage’s tough, pressure-oriented defense. Offensively, the Lady Wolverines were led by Jamie Hrobak with eight points. Brittany Phipps scored seven points. Savannah Deaver added six points. The troubles on offense for the Lady Wolverines came in the paint. “We’re having problems hitting our easy inside shots,” Culbreth said. With a little more offense on Friday night, the Lady Wolverines were very close to pulling off an upset, which looks like they are miles away from the 51-point loss earlier in the season.

Affordable vet care for senior pet owners

Dear Living Struggling with the high cost of veterinary care is a common problem for millions of pet owners today, especially seniors living on a tight budget. Routine medical care can cost hundreds of dollars, while urgent/specialized treatments and procedures can run into the thousands. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to reduce your vet bills without sacrificing your pet’s health. Here are some tips and resources that can help. Shop around If you’re not attached to a particular vet, one way to save some money is to shop around and compare costs. Call different vet clinics in your area and get price quotes on basic services like annual exams and vaccinations, as well as bigger-ticket items like to repair a broken leg, and be sure to ask for references. Also, check to see if you live near a veterinary medical school (see for a listing). Many schools provide lowcost care to limited income pet owners. Work with your vet To help make your vet bills more manageable, see if your vet’s office accepts payment plans. Some clinics accept monthly payments so you don’t have to pay the entire cost up front. Also, find out if your vet offers discounts to

Savvy Senior senior citizens or reduces fees for annual checkups if you bring in multiple pets. It’s also suggested that if your vet prescribes an expensive treatment for your pet, it’s a smart idea to get a second opinion. It will cost you anothCleAning WAxing erAuto consultation fee, &but another vet may have less expensive ways to treat your pet.

In order to qualify, your animal hospital must be AAHA accredited, and your vet will need to submit an application requesting assistance on your behalf. To find an AAHA accredited hospital near you visit

Buy cheaper medicine Medicine purchased at the vet’s office is usually much more expensive that you can get online. Instead, get a prescription from your vet (ask for generic is possible) so you can shop for the best price. Good deals can be found at sites like (800738-6337) or absolutelypets. com (888-511-7387). Or, see, a resource with links to sites that offer lower-priced medications. It also doesn’t hurt to ask the vet if he or she has free samples they can give you.

Another good resource is the American Animal Hospital Association’s “Helping Pets Fund” (www.aahahelpingpets. org, 866-443-5738). Household Business

Consider insurance If you can afford it, pet insurance is another option worth looking into. You can get a basic policy for under $10 per month, and some insurers offer discounts for insuring multiple pets. See to compare policies. Membership discount plans like Pet Assure ( are another way to save, but you’ll need to use a vet in their network. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.
