Columbus to draft new ordinance regulating peddlers Door to door sales likely to be banned by Leah Justice

Some Columbus Town Council members have expressed concern that peddlers hurt local businesses. Town council decided Tuesday, March 22 to draft a new, more stringent peddler ordinance that will include banning door- todoor sales. Discussions on the peddler ordinance began following Valentine’s Day when a vendor sold flowers in the town. Currently, a peddler can sell items in Columbus after paying $25 for a permit. Councilwoman Margaret Metcalf said when a hotdog vendor sets up in town it hurts local restaurants and a flower vendor hurts local flower shops on Valentine’s Day. “I’d lean more toward not having (peddlers),” Metcalf said. Columbus Mayor Eric McIntyre said he is leaning toward Metcalf’s opinion in that Columbus businesses are the ones that pay taxes. “It’s not that we don’t want to support entrepreneurs, we just want to help people who are al-

ready established here so we don’t lose business,” McIntyre said. Council made it clear that they don’t want to ban non-profit fundraisers, such as Girl Scout cookie selling, car washes and local fish fries. Vendors for festivals would also be exempt. Councilman Richard Hall said, however, that there was a situation last year when the high school prom and the local dance recital were held on the same night and the local flower businesses couldn’t handle the demand on one night. Councilwoman Ernie Kan said there are a lot of requirements the town could put into the new peddler ordinance to discourage peddlers, such as requiring background checks. Kan also suggested the town make the permit larger, so it can be displayed by peddlers and everyone will know they are a legitimate operation. Council members and the mayor were all in agreement that the town does not want to allow door-to-door sales. Council agreed to submit ideas to town manager Jonathan Kanipe for the new ordinance and plan to discuss it further next month.

Polk man dies when wind causes tree to fall on truck by Leah Justice

High winds Wednesday, March 23 caused a tree to fall and kill a Green Creek man as he was traveling in his truck. William Allison, 55, of Tanner Road, Green Creek, was driving east on Tanner Road around 5 p.m. Wednesday when a tree fell on his Nissan pickup truck, according to N.C. Highway Patrol reports. Windy conditions caused a dead pine tree to fall just as Allison passed below it. VFWAds - page 11

Trooper C.J. Sama said the timing was really bad luck and he’s never seen anything like it. The tree broke off a few feet from the ground. Allison was alone in the vehicle. Tanner Road was closed for some time Wednesday while the accident was being investigated. The highway patrol, Polk County EMS, Green Creek Fire Department, the Polk County Rescue Squad and Polk County Sheriff’s Office all responded to the scene.

On Thursday, Feb. 17, the Polk County Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) Advisory Committee met at the Polk County Senior Center for its fifth formal meeting. The county’s consulting planner, Dale Holland, presented items for discussion. One is the potential for a new county zoning district that would reflect the Green Space sector as outlined in the Vision 20/20 Plan. Holland stressed that at the end of the UDO development process, it is likely the current zoning map will be amended, and could represent a hybrid of existing zoning and the future land map from the Vision 20/20 Plan. Finally, Holland presented for consideration a new residential business definition for the Multiple Use district that would greatly expand allowed uses of an individual’s property. This new Class II Residential Business definition is intended to aid in the preservation of individual property rights and support the strong entrepreneurial business objectives of the Vision 20/20 Plan, while not opening the district to unbridled development. Holland also presented information from an article issued by the UNC’s Center for Urban and Regional Studies about the need for affordable, workforce housing in the Asheville Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). The article reveals that the Asheville MSA has the second least affordable housing market in North Carolina, causing many to live far away from work, and to spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing. The issue of attainable housing, housing that a nor-

mal working family or senior citizen can afford, was ranked the third highest focus priority for Polk County by the UDO advisory committee. The committee also continued the discussion about how the UDO can best reflect the advisory committee’s top priority, preserving Polk County’s prime agricultural lands and agricultural heritage. Committee members said because it is clear that subdivision sprawl has been the single most destructive development pattern to rural character throughout the region and nation, the need to provide a means to reasonably control sprawl is a great challenge in the creation of the UDO. The UDO planners and committee have agreed to propose a conditional use permit requirement for major subdivisions (more than eight lots) as the primary tool to ensure that developments do not have a negative impact on surrounding residents and the county as a whole. The committee has discussed at length the potential impacts over-development could have on the two northern townships and the Green Creek area. Of additional concern is the potential for the Town of Lake Lure to extend extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) up to one mile outside of the Lake Lure town limits into Polk County, thus regulating land use in the Sunny View area. The committee also met on March 22, when it focused on the draft ordinance articles covering Environmental Regulations and Performance Standards. The results of that meeting will be reported soon. All UDO committee meetings are open to the public. – article submitted

Swofford Career Center announces Simpkins as new director The Swofford Career Center recently announced Scott Simpkins as its new director. Swofford serves the students of Spartanburg County Districts One and Two. Simpkins is a 1986 graduate of Clemson University earning a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial technology education. He received a Master’s Degree in secondary administration and supervision from Winthrop University in 1997. Prior to joining the staff at Swofford Career Center as the assistant director, Simpkins was a teacher, coach, and chairman of the Vocational Department at Clover High School in Clover, S.C. He has

Think about this, to a Muslim, all non-believers in Islam are pagans and infidels. So it doesn’t matter if you are an atheist, a Buddhist, a Christian, a Jew, a Hindu or what-ever, you are an infidel to a Muslim. And when push comes to shove, you have one choice, convert to Islam or die. As I said at the beginning, I am not judging Muslims, but merely passing on information that you should be aware of and urging you the think. As for my Christian brothers and sisters, I ask you to remember the words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew 5:4344, “You have heard that it was said, love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those that persecute you.” NIV And so I appeal to all Christians to pray that God will intervene and open the eyes of the followers of Islam and turn them from the teachings of Muhammad. – Richard Sherwin


served the students of Spartanburg District One and Two since 1997. “I consider it a great honor to be named the new director at HB Swofford Career Center and I look forward to serving the students of both districts and all four high schools,” said Simpkins. As the assistant director of Swofford Career Center for the past 14 years and an educator for 25 years, Simpkins has served students of Clover, Chapman, Landrum, Chesnee and Boiling Springs High Schools. “We are delighted that the students and staff at Swofford Career Center will have such wonderful

leadership in Scott Simpkins. He has been an integral part of Swofford’s success for several years. With Mr. Simpkins as the director, we are confident that our students and the staff there will continue to have the guidance that is needed for the school to continue to be a leader in career and technical education in the upstate,” said Dr. Ron Garner, District One Schools superintendent. Superintendent of Spartanburg District Two Dr. Scott Mercer said “Mr. Simpkins brings experience and a proven track record at Swofford Career Center, which will be invaluable in continuing the programs and successes already

Thermal Belt Friendship Council will present a viewing of the “Soundtrack for a Revolution” on Saturday, March 26 at noon. The program will be held at Congregational Church, located at 210 Melrose Avenue in Tryon, as part of the Thermal Belt Friendship Council’s continuing Black History Month celebrations. The program is free to participants, and a light lunch will be provided by the Thermal Belt Friendship Council. As reported by the producer’s website, www.soundtrackforarevolutionfilm.com, “‘Soundtrack for a Revolution’ tells the story of the American civil rights movement through its powerful music - the freedom songs protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, in paddy wagons, and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. The film features new performances of the freedom songs by top artists, including John Legend, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean and The Roots; riveting archival footage; and interviews with civil rights foot soldiers and leaders,

including Congressman John Lewis, Harry Belafonte, Julian Bond and Ambassador Andrew Young. “The freedom songs evolved from slave chants, from the labor movement and especially from the Black church. The music enabled Blacks to sing words they could not say, and it was crucial in helping the protesters as they faced down brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence. The infectious energy of the songs swept people up and empowered them to fight for their rights. “‘Soundtrack for a Revolution’ celebrates the vitality of this music. Directed by Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman and executive produced by Danny Glover, ‘Soundtrack for a Revolution’ is a vibrant blend of heart-wrenching interviews, dramatic images, and thrilling contemporary performances - a film of significance, energy and power.” For more information, contact Dr. Joseph Fox at 828-669-7318. – article submitted

Essence Bee pollen - best diet supplement

day spa for mind, body & soul

When doing nutritional counseling, or seminars, I’m often asked which diet supplements I “take” as well as recommend. I get a few raised eyebrows when I tell folks that if I could take only one nutritional supplement, I would choose “bee pollen.” That’s right, bee pollen. This may seem strange, but did you know bee pollen is actually a unique and powerful food? Honeybees eat pollen, because they need incredible amounts of energy to fly on average 15 miles per hour and visit as many as 1,200 flowers in one flight. Bee pollen has been used for centuries by cultures all over the world for its energy and healing effects? In fact “Hippocrates” wrote on the healthful benefits of bee pollen. First, let’s look at “what” bee pollen is. Pollen comes

from the male “stamen” of flowers. “Bee pollen” is created when worker honey bees

Diet & Exercise by David Crocker transport pollen granules to their nest with specially arranged hairs on their hind legs. When honey bees arrive back at the hive, they have to crawl up through a series of ¼ wiring to enter. This process harmlessly scrapes the pollen from the bee’s legs and body, and drops it down into a collection tray. After the pollen has been collected, it’s sifted, then frozen. Now we know what bee pollen is, but what makes it such a “super food?” First, bee pollen contains over 5,000 enzymes and coenzymes, which is more than any other food. Enzymes are specific proteins that catalyze

chemical reactions in the body. Catalyze is just a fancy word for speedup. These enzymatic reactions are necessary for everything from muscle contraction, to using the nutrients in our food, to breathing. In fact, without enzymes, life couldn’t even exist. Bee pollen is 40 percent pure protein, which makes it denser in protein than any source of protein from animals. It’s also a safer source of protein, when compared with animal proteins, because it doesn’t contain saturated fats. Also, bee pollen contains 18 vitamins, 25 minerals, 59 trace elements, 14 fatty acids, and is extremely rich in carotenes, which are precursors of vitamin A. It’s also rich in B complex, vitamins C, D, E and Lecithin, which is a lipid that helps keep cell membranes healthy. (Continued on page 29)

• Diet & Exercise (continued from page 28)

Bee pollen is not only the richest source of vitamins found in nature, it’s also the richest source of rutin. Rutin is in a class of flavinoids that also contain querctin, hesperidin, eriodicyl and citron. These flavinoids are essential for the absorption of vitamin C. Rutin is an important nutritional supplement because of its ability to strengthen capillaries. This action helps people with arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), high blood pressure or venous insufficiency. There are also trace elements found in bee pollen that modern science can’t even identify. That is believed to be another reason bee pollen packs such a nutritional punch. By the way, bee pollen is good for dogs, cats and even horses. Bee pollen is available in health food stores in many varieties such as whole granules, wafers, powders and capsules. I recommend to start taking bee pollen slowly. Any bee product could cause allergic reactions in some people. I

recommend to start taking bee pollen by placing a couple of granules under your tongue to test for sensitivity, like sneezing, itching, swelling, rash or flushing. If you experience any allergic reaction, seek medical help. If no allergic reaction occurs, gradually increase to 1 to 2 tsp. a day or more. Pollen granules do have “cell walls” so chew for better nutrient absorption. Just because you have pollen allergies doesn’t mean you can’t take bee pollen. Pollens responsible for allergies are airborne or anemphilous. The type of pollen collected by bees is called entomophilous. Pregnant women however, should not take bee pollen. Also, nursing mothers shouldn’t.

Volunteers are heart of Blue Ridge BBQ festival “The music is great. The barbecue is the best. But it's the volunteers who make it work,” Blue Ridge BBQ Festival organizers said. “It’s amazing that this whole thing is run by volunteers,” said Allison Gillespie, volunteer coordinator. “It’s astounding. There is not one paid position. We do it for the love of the festival, the love of the community and because we love people.” And it’s that time again – time for volunteers to start signing up and getting involved. The festival needs between 300

and 500 community volunteers to make it happen. Duncan Ely, volunteer coordinator working with Gillespie, said, “This is a community festival, and community volunteers – whether long-timers or firsttimers, individuals, families or groups – make it happen.” Volunteers were disappointed last year when they thought the festival might be canceled. When it was announced the festival was still on, they came out in force to show their support. This year there’s a new leader, Chuck Britton, and a

new entertainment committee led by Brook Hannon and Benton Wharton. Hannon and Wharton landed country music star Chuck Wicks, who will be performing on the main stage at 9:30 p.m. Friday night. Britton promises volunteers will be well taken care of this year. Last year, because of money (or rather, lack of it), volunteers weren’t given food tickets. Britton said, “We are trying something new this year and the volunteers will be fed.” That’s in addition to getting

the highly coveted “Volunteer” T-shirt. Signing up online to volunteer is easy and there are lots of positions to sign up for. To sign up, visit BlueRidgeBBQFestival.com. The festival is conducted annually under the auspices of the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce. For further information and for sponsorship opportunities, call the festival office at 828-859-RIBS (7427) or visit BlueRidgeBBQFestival.com. – article submitted

Letter to the Editor

Eminent domain not considered for railroad project

To the Editor: In his recent letter to the editor, Keith Holbert suggested that County Commissioners might use “imminent domain” to take property along the railroad tracks in Polk County. Nothing could be further from the truth, and Mr. Holbert well knows it.

Wolverines blank Mitchell Mountaineers 16-0 by Daniel Hecht

On a warm spring evening Tuesday, March 22, a loose and relaxed Wolverines team took the field at Polk County High, preparing to host the Mountaineers of Mitchell County. Getting set to play their second conference game of the season, Coach Ty Stott’s squad was quietly confident, and with good reason. Polk had won their first conference game on the road by a score of 12-0 at Mountain Heritage Friday, and had trampled rival Landrum 17-5 in a nonconference match just 24 hours earlier. Other teams that had averaged 15 runs per game in their previous two outings might have been excused for easing off the offensive throttle a bit, but Polk County isn’t just any other baseball team. With their focus scope locked on a third straight Western Highlands conference title, it was pedal to the metal all the way, as the Wolverines crushed the visitors from Bakersville 16-0, in a game called by mercy rule after five innings. Offensively, the Wolverines were led by Dakota Turner, who went 2 for 2 with an RBI single and a three-run homer, winding up with four RBIs on the night.

Alec Philpott added four RBIs as well, going 1 for 2 at the plate with a grand slam home run. Other standouts included Andre Overholt (2 for 3) and Lucas Cash (2 for 2), though Polk’s hit show was a true team effort as eleven different Wolverines drew blood at the plate. Polk’s pitching staff continued to vex opponents, as the Mountaineers were held to just two hits on the night. Turner took the hill to start the game and put in a solid four innings of work, striking out four while walking none and earning the win. Joel Booker relieved Turner in the fifth inning and was impressive in his first appearance on the mound, striking out all three of the final Mitchell batters to preserve the victory. Asked if he intended to work Booker into the regular pitching rotation, Stott answered pragmatically. “We’re going to have to, because we only have three other pitchers right now, so we’re doing it out of necessity,” said Stott, referring to the absence of staff ace Lucas Cash, who continues to be nagged by an arm injury. Stott expressed confidence in Booker’s pitching ability, adding “We’ve known we’re going to need an extra arm for a while now, and we feel he’s probably

going to be very good at it.” Polk (5-1, 2-0) resumes con-

ference play on Friday, March 25 at home versus Avery.

LHS Cardinal tennis team reaches for first win by JB Wilson

On a sunny Tuesday afternoon, the Landrum men’s varsity tennis team sought their first team victory of the season against Greer. The Cardinals weren’t able to notch a ‘W,’ but there were several positives to take away from the match; most notably the return of

the team’s best player and leader. Sophomore Harry Reed returned to action, having missed the previous two Landrum matches with a nagging ankle injury. According to Reed’s father, the sophomore came back ready to go. “Harry just got off crutches only three days ago.”

Perhaps the layoff was a good thing for Reed, as he was the only player to win his match March 22, defeating Greer’s number one singles player handily 6-2, 6-1. Landrum Head Coach Deon Brice before the match said he was happy to have the sophomore back on the court.

“Harry is a great kid, and a really competitive kid too. He is definitely our team leader,” Brice said. Those are very strong words for only a sophomore on a varsity squad. Then again, the Landrum tennis team is relatively young (Continued on page 37)

itself, competing in only its second season and first in regional play. “We are very young,” Brice said. “We’ve got a junior in Nathan Williams and a sophomore in Harry, but the rest of the team is eighth graders.” Fortunately for Landrum’s yung squad, they have a player like Reed who leads by example both on and off the court. Reed is an accomplished player, ranking 80th in South Carolina’s U-16 USTA standings. As a freshman he was

awarded the team’s Most Valuable Player honor. Reed hopes to continue his tennis career in college, having already begun talks with elite schools such as West Point, Washington & Lee, University of South Carolina and the University of Georgia. While none of Landrum’s other players were able to walk away with wins in yesterday’s match, junior Nathan Williams put forth a strong effort in the number two spot, losing in a very competitive match 6-4, 7-5.

How to save money when you hit Medicare’s Part D prescription donut hole Dear Savvy Senior I’m about to reach the “donut hole” coverage gap for my Medicare Part D plan. I would like to find out how the new discounts that Medicare is now offering works, and any other suggestions you may have on how to save on my prescription drugs. Paying Too Much Dear Paying For millions of seniors, the downside to Medicare’s Part D prescription drug plans has always been the coverage gap – also known as the donut hole. But starting this year (in 2011), financial relief is available. Here’s what you should know.

Donut Hole Discounts As part of the new health care reform law, Medicare Part D beneficiaries that reach the donut hole this year will receive a 50 percent discount on their brand-name drugs, and a 7 percent discount on their generic medications. How it will work is once your total drug costs for 2011 reaches $2,840 (that includes your share and the insurer’s share of the costs), you’ll get a 50 percent discount on your brand-name prescription drugs when you purchase them at the pharmacy or through the mail. Then, after your out-of-pocket costs reach $4,550 for the year, you’ll qualify for catastrophic coverage and your Part D plan will pick up around 95 percent of your tab. With these discounts, it’s important to understand that the entire cost of the drug (including the 50 percent discount and the 50

Savvy Senior percent you pay) will be counted toward the amount you need to fill the coverage gap. The discounts will not leave you stuck in the donut hole longer! In addition to the brand-name drug discounts, the government is also providing a 7 percent discount on generic drugs during the coverage gap. You will pay the remaining 93 percent of that price. But when you purchase generic drugs, only the 93 percent that you pay will count towards leaving the donut hole. You can find more detailed information on Medicare’s new donut hole drug discounts at www. closingthecoveragegap.info. Other Cost Cutters In addition to the discounts, there are other things you can try to lower your drug costs in the donut hole. For starters, ask your doctor if there’s a generic or less-expensive brand-name drug you could switch to. About 75 percent of all premiums drugs on the market today have a lowercost alternative. You may also be able to save money by finding pharmacies that offer lower prices or by using a mail-order pharmacy. To find cost savings information on generics, less expensive brand-name drugs, and mail-order pharmacies see www.medicare.gov/find-a- plan. Another cost cutter is to buy your medications in bulk. Many pharmacies give discounts if you buy a three-month supply of drugs versus a 30-day supply. Also, find out from your doctor

or pharmacist if the pills you’re taking can be cut in half. Pill splitJ.L.'s Towing Service ting allows you to get two months worth of medicine for the price Want to buy unwanted of one.

Administration Attorneys 212 S. Grove Street Hendersonville, NC Dedicated to Preserving and Protecting Your Assets

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 1x1 for probate. Lack of an original 5/23 will causes problems and administrative delays at the 6/20 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 - inDD 0tfn5fri 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.
