Tryon native DeCarlo Wilkins recently won the “Big of the Year” award for the state of Georgia for his volunteerism with the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program in Atlanta. Wilkins has been a Big Brother in the Metro Atlanta agency for nine years and has been matched with the same Little Brother, Keumontavious, for nearly five years. “DeCarlo is like a father to me,” said Keumontavious in an essay nominating Wilkins for the award. “I look up to him as a role model. I can talk to him about anything because most people will not understand me. He gives me inspiration to do and be my best in everything I do. DeCarlo is like a miracle (Continued on page 3)

Chamber, EDC remaining choices for Polk travel and tourism services County agrees to fund tourism with occupancy tax only by Leah Justice

After four organizations offered to take responsibility for Polk County’s travel and tourism services, county commissioners

have narrowed their options to either the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce or a combination of the county’s travel and tourism department and its economic development commission (EDC). Before Monday’s decision, keeping the current tourism office was one option on the table,

Serving Polk County and Upper Spartanburg and Greenville Counties

and the Town of Tryon/Tryon Tourism Development Authority (TDDA) had also expressed interest in handling travel and tourism services. The Polk County Board of Commissioners on Monday, April 4 also agreed the funding (Continued on page 5)

Wilkins obtained a bachelor’s degree in business administration

for travel and tourism services will come only from occupancy tax dollars no matter who handles the services. Previously, in addition to approximately $64,000 in occupancy tax, collected from accommodation providers throughout the county, the county had funded the department up to $70,000. “During our last meeting we had several excellent presentations,” said commissioner chairman Ray Gasperson. “There’s a lot of passion in this county about the travel and tourism department.” Commissioner Cindy Walker said she wanted to make it clear that the county asked the chamber if it was interested in taking on county travel and tourism duties. She suggested the county narrow its options to either the chamber or the EDC/travel and tourism combination. “They (chamber members) were the only ones who had in-

asked chamber president Andy Millard if the chamber would be willing to keep the current Columbus office open to reduce the location concerns. Millard said the chamber could possibly keep the office open, but he is not sure the chamber is not a good location. He said one advantage of the Lynn office is it’s on the way to everywhere. It’s not much farther off the interstate than the current travel and tourism office and the chamber already has every brochure for just about every tourism business in the area, Millard said. “I think we could look at (keeping the office open), but that would involve some real examinations of the two options,” Millard said. Commissioners are scheduled to hold a work session with the EDC prior to the board of commissioners’ next meeting on April 18. The board could vote on who will take on the duties during the April 18 meeting, which will begin at 3 p.m. at the Womack building in Columbus.

I-26 widening to start in 2020

The N.C. Department of Transportation (DOT) has shelved plans to revamp the I-26/I-40/I-240 interchange in Asheville, according to a new Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) that DOT said is a more realistic list of projects than plans of previous years. Asheville officials have pushed for years to get the interchange work done and it was included in the previous TIP, but the state said it’s not as critical as other “urban loop” projects in the state. The Asheville interchange work, which would require new bridges across the French Broad River near downtown, has higher costs and lower benefits for traffic improvement than the other projects, said DOT. The new TIP does include I-26 widening projects in Buncombe and Henderson counties. The widening, estimated to cost $153.2 million in Buncombe County and $113.2 million in Henderson County, is not scheduled to begin until 2020. The state plans to widen I-26 in Henderson County from U.S. 25 in East Flat Rock to N.C. 280 and in Buncombe County from Airport Road to I-40. The draft 2012-20 TIP is viewable at

DOT has been holding meetings across the state to gather input, and is expected to approve the plan in July. *** Approximately 37,000 North Carolinians, including about 2,500 in Western North Carolina, are expected to lose extended unemployment benefits this month because the state’s unemployment rate is no longer 110 percent or more of three-month averages from 2010 or 2009. Some states have adjusted their formulas used to determine when extended unemployment benefits are paid, but North Carolina lawmakers have not made an adjustment. The federal government notified the N.C. Employment Security Commission (ESC) last week said it will stop paying out extended benefits on April 16. The 20-week extended benefits program followed 26 weeks of initial benefits and 53 weeks of emergency federal benefits, giving people a total of 99 weeks of benefits. About 234,000 North Carolinians have received benefits under the program, which has cost about $750 million, according to the ESC. Some state officials have said the lost benefits will have a harmful impact on the economy and many residents who are still struggling to find work. The ESC said it cannot continue the program if a revised formula is not enacted by the N.C. General Assembly.

Clean Burn Fuels said last month that it stopped production because ethanol prices have not kept pace with the surging price of corn. The company, based in Raeford, completed construction of its 60-million gallon ethanol plant last year. *** The nation’s oldest solar energy conference, organized by the American Solar Energy Society, will come to Raleigh in May.

The state said it found bags of chilled raccoon meat in a cooler in the Gadsden store. DHEC said it found the meat on an initial inspection and ordered it to be thrown away. However, the store was still stocking the meat when DHEV visited a second time. The state, which does not certify raccoon meat as safe for humans, said it is considering action against the store.

*** The City of Asheville has agreed to wait to cut down two Bradford Pear trees downtown after Clare Hanrahan chained herself to the trees that were slated for removal. The local activist chained herself to one of the trees near the corner of Haywood Street and Battery Park Avenue after seeing four other nearby Bradford Pears removed. The city’s arborist Mark Foster had said the trees were not “urban-tolerant” and could suffer broken limbs in snowstorms. After Hanrahan blocked removal of the remaining two trees, the city agreed to delay their removal until at least after the trees are done blooming. The city also plans to cut down a sycamore tree on Battery Park Avenue and several trees along Patton Avenue. The trees will be replaced with other varieties, such as Cleveland pear trees, red maple, American holly and fruitless sweet gum.

Carl Herndon Coghill Jr., 83, of 130 Gleneagles Road, Campobello, died Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. He was born Feb. 28, 1928 in Henderson, N.C., son of Carl H. Coghill and Irma Gray Floyd Coghill. He served in the U.S. Army after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1949. Mr. Coghill was a business analyst with Milliken & Company in Spartanburg from 1960 until retiring in 2009 at age 81. When he earned its 2002 Director’s Super Nova Award, the director of industrial engineering wrote: “He is the company’s most able individual in cutting through the detail to design an efficient solution to a cost/engineering/system/financial problem. Carl’s opinion and thoughts are respected company-wide, from the newest industrial engineer trainee to the company chairman. “To find a problem that he has not seen before is unusual; to find a problem he does not know how to address is yet to happen. He is truly a valued treasure and a role model for the ages.” Mr. Coghill previously worked in textiles industrial engineering in Virginia and Medellin, Colombia. He was for many years a member of the St. Paul United Methodist Church in Spartanburg, serving as treasurer. He was a Gold Life Master in bridge. He and his first wife, the late Ann Talley Coghill, were a long-time presence in American Contract Bridge League games in Spartanburg. After retiring, Mr. Coghill played regularly at Tryon as well.

Friday, April 08, 2011

He married Susi Austin Coghill in Columbia and moved to Links O’Tryon in Campobello. Mr. Coghill took up golf at age 70 and was an active member in the Links O’Tryon Golf Club. He was an excellent cook, specializing in perfectly crispy bacon and fluffy scrambled eggs for large family gatherings. After moving his membership to Landrum United Methodist Church, Mr. Coghill cooked a much-anticipated monthly breakfast for the men’s club. At one time, Mr. Coghill kept a large backyard garden, and he always grew tomatoes and flowers. He was an avid fan of University of North Carolina Tar Heels basketball and all ACC sports. He was a lifelong reader who loved to discuss current events and politics. He was a staunch conservative. Carl loved people and loved to laugh. He was dearly beloved by his family and was affectionately called Great Great. Surviving are his wife, Susi Austin Coghill of the home; a daughter, Sybil C. Lauderdale, and her husband, David Lauderdale, of Hilton Head Island, S.C.; two sons, Dr. Carl H. “Tim” Coghill III and his wife, Karen Smith Coghill, of Mountain Brook, Ala., and David F. Coghill and his wife, Nan Conner Coghill, of Mission, Texas; two stepsons, Travis Long and his wife, Terri Lee Long, of Greer, S.C., and Jim Long and his wife Therry D. Long of Campobello; seven grandchildren, Burke Lauderdale of New York City, Ann Talley Lauderdale of Hilton Head, Kimberly Coghill Johnson and her husband, Alex Johnson, of Lexington, Ky., Matthew Coghill of Atlanta, Ga., Griffin Coghill of Mountain Brook, Ala., Conner Coghill of Mission, Texas, and Christopher Coghill of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; (Continued on page 17)

Community abounds this month in Saluda

“This spring as it comes bursts up in bonfires green, Wild puffing of emerald trees, and flame-filled bushes...� – from “The Enkindled Spring� by D.H. Lawrence

Welcome to early April Saluda news and notations! To start your day off with a smile, recently I drove my middle age VW down the mountain to the Upstairs Artspace where I work on Thursdays and Fridays. My daydreaming along the scenic 176 route was rudely interrupted by bursts of metallic grinding underneath the car. This was not good! So much for a bucolic drive, I thought. Hobbling into Tryon, I crossed the railroad tracks, which made the grinding louder. Wheeling into in a parking space, the car and I both heaved a sigh of relief; then I gave the foreign auto guys in Landrum a distress call. After work, creeping slowly like a halfblind driver, we pulled up in the repair shop’s lot. Within one minute, Michael had crawled underneath the car and wrestled out the culprit: a large wishbone-shaped branch had lodged underneath and become stuck in parts unknown. I don’t know who laughed the hardest, but they last saw me heading north, window down, shouting that the car sure sounded better! Thanks, guys. It dawned on me that if it happened in less friendly areas, the car would have been in the shop for a week, and an astronomical repair bill presented. Honesty and kindness seem to be prevailing traits in these parts! The Women’s Club of Saluda will feature Dr. Ben Pfingstag and “The Art of Lent� on Tuesday, April 12 at 10 a.m. in Saluda Library’s upstairs meeting room. Refreshments will be served in the Presbyterian Church fellowship hall afterward. The Saluda Single Women United group meets April 14 at 6 p.m. for a potluck dinner and program at the Saluda Center.

Our Saluda 130th Anniversary Historic Smith Hill tour of homes committee will have an auction at Saturday, June 4 from 1 – 5 p.m., Saluda Center to raise funds for as part of Saluda’s 130th An“Keep the Celebration on Track� niversary Celebration sponsored by the Saluda on April 23 Historic Comstarting at 10 Saluda mittee.

Caleb Smith of Duncan, S.C., (left) scored his hole-in-one on the Little Monster, 56 yards. Smith was given a round of applause while local players looked on. In a matter of minutes, Corey Mathis (right) holed the popular Palmetto Green, 141 yards, with a seven iron. Smith and Mathis play out of the Spartanburg area.

she’d like to help, too.” I thanked them mightily and then Gillian took it upon herself to telephone Randy Grobe at ‘The Frog and Swan’ and send out an appeal for some lovely vintage china from which we could serve our tea and goodies. “I should have plenty!” said Randy when I phoned my thanks. “I’ll just go through what I have and put together a box for you.” Consider today’s column a love letter to you all. The help offered came from the very best

place: the pure desire to give with no expectation to receive anything else in return. Regardless of how many reservations we receive I feel we are already experiencing heady success. Now the real fun begins: the decorating, the trawling through our local shops for a hat (you must wear a hat, dear) and the anticipation of the shimmering pageantry that only England can produce. Hope to see you in April! Comedienne Pam Stone writes her column for The Tryon Daily Bulletin twice each month from her office at her home in Gowensville.

Super foods assist in cancer fighting In last week’s column, we discovered foods with natural “cancer-fighting” potential. The list was long enough to make this a two-part column. This is the second in the series. As stated before, these articles are not to suggest anyone should abandon medical attention. It’s advantageous to use common sense. I feel “medical” and “natural” approaches to healing should work in concert to affect desired results, so make sure your doctor and nutritionist are on the same page. The foods on this list not only assist in detoxifying cancer-causing toxins, and block inflammation, they in many cases increase the effectiveness of medicines used in treating disease. To continue the list… 6) Cruciferous greens. This is the “cabbage” family. These include broccoli, cabbage, Chi-

which aren’t easily digested, so I recommend crushing or chewing these vegetables well to release their healthful compounds. Also, these substances are absorbed more easily when mixed with a small amount of olive oil. 9) Soy. Soy contains isoflavones, which may block the stimulation of cancer cells by sex hormones such as estrogens and testosterone. One study in Asia showed that women who had eaten soy since adolescence had significantly fewer cases of breast cancer, and in those who did, their tumors were usually less aggressive with higher survival rates. To get more soy, I recommend replacing milk products with soymilk or soy yogurts. Also, use tofu in your food recipes. 10) Dark chocolate: I saved possibly your favorite for last.

TBOM, ag center hold work day April 11 for community garden Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (TBOM) and the Mill Spring Agricultural Center are sponsoring a community garden on TBOM property for a limited number of interested people. The groups ask for the public’s help in creating as many spaces as possible. On Monday, April 11 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., the groups will hold a work day to construct raised garden beds and they

invite the public to come help. The rain date will be Monday, April 18. “A famous farmer, Aldo Leopold, once noted that the danger of a society losing its bearings comes from the grocery store,” organizers said, admitting that they are “shamelessly paraphrasing.” “The point being that in prosperous times communities will often forget to tell the next generation how

to survive and that generation will not know important skills later on when they may need them. Community gardening is a way for people to strengthen bonds with neighbors, supplement food budgets, providing recreation for individuals and families and pass on knowledge and skills that might otherwise be lost.” The following is needed for the beds: lumber (8 feet

long, 1x12s are best, but other boards at least 8 feet long are welcome), 4x4 corner pieces, nails, hammers, fertilizer, seeds, tomato stakes/cages and gardening tools. RSVP to Cinda Austin at or Kacy Spooner at Let them know whether you are able to bring any of the listed items. – article submitted

Steps to HOPE raises awareness of sexual assault April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month What is sexual assault/violence? Sexual assault/violence is the forcing or manipulation of a person into unwanted sexual activity without their consent. Anyone can experience sexual assault/violence – children, teens, young adults, adults and elders. Some forms of sexual assault/ violence are rape, incest, child sexual assault, unwanted sexual contact or touching, sexual harassment and sexual exploitation. Sexual assault/violence affects people of all genders, ages, races, religions, incomes, abilities, professions, ethnicities and sexual orientations. Here are some facts: • By age 18, one in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually assaulted; • One in six women and one in 33 men have experienced an

attempted or completed rape at some point in her/his life. Who are the perpetrators of sexual assault/violence? Perpetrators of sexual assault/violence can be a friend, a date, classmate, neighbor, co-worker, acquaintance, family member or stranger. Sexual assault/violence has a lifelong impact on women, men and children. It is a violation of a person’s right to safety. The healing process after sexual violence is often difficult and may take a long time, but with support, healing can occur. Visit www.; or for more information. If you are a victim of sexual assault or sexual violence, call Steps to HOPE’s 24-hour crisis line at 828-894-2340.

NOTICE OF MEETINGS OF THE POLK COUNTY BOARD OF EQUALIZATION AND REVIEW Pursuant to N.C.G. S. 105-322, the Polk County Board of Equalization and Review will meet as required by law. PURPOSE OF MEETINGS To hear, upon request, any and all taxpayers who own or control taxable property assessed for taxation in Polk County, with respect to valuation of such property, or the property of others, and to fulfill other duties and responsibilites as required by law. TIME OF MEETINGS The Board will convene for its first meeting on Tuesday April 5, 2011. The Board will adjourn for the purpose of accepting Requests for hearing at its last meeting on Wednesday, April 27, 2011. Meetings will begin at 9:00 AM in the R. Jay Foster Hall of Justice upstairs in the Womack Building located at 40 Courthouse St, Columbus, NC Requests for hearing must me received no later than final adjournment which is scheduled for Wednesday April 27, 2011 at 1:00 PM. In the event of an earlier or a later adjournment, notice to that effect will be published in this newspaper. If you are appealing the value of your property, you must provide evidence that the county value was substantially higher than market value on January 1, 2009 (the county’s last appraisal year.) Examples of relevant evidence include: sale prices of properties comparable to yours, which sold during the year before the county’s last appraisal year; unequal assessed values for properties comparable to yours; an appraisal with an effective date of January 1, 2009 (the county’s last appraisal date;) By statute, property values cannot be changed based on changes in economic conditions which occur after the last appraisal, and which affect the county in general - [G.S. §105-287(b)(2)]. For example, if your tax value was set by the county at $100,000 a couple of years ago, but today’s market value is only $80,000 because of a recent decrease in real estate values, the county is not permitted to lower the tax value. For the same reason, your tax value cannot be raised if today’s market value is $130,000 because of an increase in real estate values. Local real estate market conditions only affect tax values when the county conducts a new countywide reappraisal, which must be done at least every eight years. adv. 3/25; 4/1,8

clear up. He was congested and full of mucus, which not only could be fatal in cats, it may be highly contagious. His wheezing and dripping nose just seemed to get worse no matter what was tried. Through it all, Corona remained sweet and loving, soaking up human attention. You’d almost think he was remaining sickly so he’d get special attention. Finally, Dr. Magsino at Cloverfield vet was called and she agreed to take on Corona’s case as her promised yearly free case.  God bless you, Maria, for being among my great lady vets - beware, hugs are coming. When I learned the cause of Corona’s problem I swore under my breath with rage. Corona had a BB shot lodged in his lung creating all the fluids. I’ll never understand the mentality of someone shooting at helpless animals for sport. The BB was successfully removed and Corona is recovering beautifully. I was told he came out of anesthesia purring and happy as a kitten. Corona can breathe again and soon I’m certain he’ll make someone a wonderful addition to the family. That’s if Cloverfield vet will ever give him up. They have nicknamed him the Big Kahuna and Maria and her staff are deeply and firmly in love. You’ve been through a lot big fella, but you wound up in good and caring hands. Now go out there and wow the world as you’ve done to all those who’ve known you. Thanks for listening.

Agency. Participation in the IDA program is an opportunity for individuals whose household income is below 200 percent of the federal poverty level to save $1,000 and have it matched with $2,000 for the sole purpose of first time home ownership.

Hrobak wins record 39th as Polk softball upends TJCA 18-1 by Daniel Hecht

As baseball hall of famer Yogi Berra once said, it’s like déjà vu all over again. While sharp-eyed followers of Polk County sports may feel the need to check the date on today’s copy of the Bulletin again, the score reported in this article is no misprint. Monday afternoon, the ladies of Polk County softball completed the second game of their conference schedule versus Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy, this time traveling to Crowe Park in Forest City to take on the Lady Gryphons. While the venue was different, the final outcome was identical to last Tuesday’s contest in Columbus, as the Lady Wolverines again vanquished their less experienced opponents by a score of 18-1, this time in just four innings. Polk pitcher Jamie Hrobak worked the first two frames, striking out four and giving up just two hits while earning her 10th victory of the season. With the win, Hrobak reached a major milestone, as she earned her 39th career victory, breaking the Polk County career wins record previously held by local softball

legend Tiffany McCord. With half of her junior season still in front of her, and continuing to improve every game, Hrobak figures to set a lofty mark for future hurlers to aspire to before she is finished with her time in the circle at Polk. Yancey Pace took over in the third for Hrobak, allowing no hits and just one run in 1-1/3 innings of work. Sophomore Katie Ruff took over to record the final two outs, turning a nifty double play as she snagged a line drive and wheeled to throw to second base for the game-ending double play. Offensively, the Lady Wolverines turned in a typically strong performance, tallying 13 hits on the day. Cassie Couch went 2 for 2 at the plate, stroking a base loaded single in the first for two RBIs and blasting a base loaded triple in the second for three more RBIs.

Polk baseball trounces Swain Maroon Devils 12-3 by Daniel Hecht

Following last Friday’s backbreaking loss to the Warhorses of Owen High School at Black Mountain, a return to the friendly confines of Columbus was a welcome respite for Coach Ty Stott’s Wolverines baseball squad. Polk played host Monday, April 4 to visiting Swain County in a nonconference contest. Although Stott had planned to start Alec Philpott versus the 4-6 Maroon Devils, the sophomore pitcher, who sustained a low back muscle strain in the Owen game, was not able to take the mound. Instead, Stott went to his JV roster, tapping Elijah Williams for his first varsity start. Williams held the Maroon Devils scoreless until the top of third inning, when with two outs and two runners on, Swain catcher Lee Pattillo launched a hanging curveball well over the

345 sign in left field for a three run home run. Those would be the only runs Williams would allow, as the sophomore worked a solid 5-2/3 innings, scattering seven hits while striking out three and walking three. With two outs in the sixth, Joel Booker came in to relieve Williams, and in another firstrate late innings appearance, struck out each of the final four Swain batters to preserve the 12-3 victory. Though Williams will, for now, remain in the regular JV rotation, Stott was impressed with his young starter’s performance. “We know that, if we need him now, we can count on him, and that’s a big step,” said Stott. A lack of depth on the mound continues to plague the Wolverines, as senior pitching ace Lucas Cash remains relegated to DH duties while undergoing rehabili-

tation for a sore arm. Offensively, the Wolverines had yet another impressive outing, continuing to average over 11 runs per game at the plate. Roberto Taft went 3 for 4 on the afternoon with 4 RBI’s, cap-

Polk County Middle School’s baseball team

Polk Middle baseball beats Macon 5-4; now 4 and 1 The Polk County Middle School Baseball team beat Macon Middle School on Monday 5 to 4 to improve to 4 and 1 on the season. Polk and Macon were tied for first. After starting the season with a loss to Waynesville Middle, the team has rattled off four victories in a row with the last one over Macon. Coach Ruth said all their victories have been relatively close, three of

them one-run games. He also mentioned that his pitching staff has been outstanding and really helped win some games. The team ERA is 1.6 with opposing teams only scoring an average of 3 runs a game. The pitching staff includes Morgan Groves, Bryce Martin, and Dequn Gary. Dequn has come on strong this year and has really

helped the team with his performance on the mound. Leading the team with hitting is Martin with a .579 avg followed closely by Groves .533. Others who have contributed with their bats are Mark Mazzilli, Justin Jones, Tyler Campbell, and Noah Howell with his two RBIs against Macon, which sealed the victory. Ruth said they have played solid fundamental base-

ball and it is paying off with wins. Others on the team are Konner Scruggs, Tyler Jackson, Cole Morgan, Sean Doyle, Daniel Painter, Matthew Milam and Cory Skipper. Everyone on the team has been a part of each of the victories, with line-up changes in almost every game due to injuries. Ruth said he is very proud of the team and hopes they can continue the success.

on a tear. The Cardinals are currently moving through their region schedule like a wrecking ball and are off to a 7-0 start. That demolition continued on Tuesday night as Whitmire came to town for a 13-3 Cardinal victory. Landrum wasted no time, jumping on the Wolverines in the first inning. Leadoff hitter Kaleb Kukykendall started the inning with a walk. Kuykendall reached based in all four at bats on Tuesday. Jon Humphries reached base on an error. Thomas Rabatie followed with a bases-clearing triple. When the dust settled in the first inning, the Cardinals had a 5-0 lead. Rabatie finished the game 2-for-3 with three RBIs and a walk. Kuykendall, who’s been on fire as a leadoff hitter, finished 2-for-2 with two walks and three RBIs. “Kaleb is doing a tremendous job leading off,” Landrum coach Ray McCallister said. “He’s got a good eye and knows his zone.” The Cardinals added two runs in the third inning, three in the fourth and two in the fifth. On the mound, Joseph Corn

down inning was in the fourth when the Wolverines managed to score three runs. Two errors were a big part of the inning that opened the door for Whitmire. After that inning, McCallister challenged Corn to come out in the fifth and show his stuff. Corn did. In the fifth, he struck one out, forced a groundout and got the final batter to fly out to centerfield. “I was proud of the way he came back,” McCallister said. Landrum is peaking at the right time. “We’re just going out there, playing and doing our best,” Rabatie said. McCallister echoed the sentiments of his catcher and added an addendum. The Cardinals have yet to play well on offense, defense and on the mound at the same time. “When we put those three pieces together, there’s no telling how good we can be,” he said. Landrum is in the driver’s seat for the region championship. The Cardinals are the only undefeated team in the region, but still have to play Southside Christian twice. The Sabres are in second place.

Elder mediation can help adult families resolve conflicts Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about elder mediation for resolving family conflicts? My mother has Alzheimer’s disease, and to make matters worse, my three siblings and I have been perpetually arguing about how to handle her care and finances. Would this type of service be helpful to us? Tired of Fighting Dear Tired, If your siblings are willing, elder care mediation may be just what your family needs to help you work through disagreements. Here’s what you should know. Elder mediation While mediators have been used for years to help divorcing couples sort out legal and financial disagreements and avoid court battles, elder care mediation is a relatively new and specialized field designed to help families resolve disputes related to aging parents or other elderly relatives. Family disagreements over an ill or elderly parent’s caregiving needs, living arrangements, financial decisions and medical care are some of the many issues with which an elder care mediator can help. But don’t confuse this with family or group therapy. Mediation is only about decision-making, not feelings and emotions.
