More than 1,500 sign petition to keep post office open Polk approves resolution to keep Mill Spring post office full-service by Leah Justice

The United States Postal Service has said the Mill Spring Post Office will not close, but 1,507 customers are concerned enough about that possibility to sign a petition to keep the doors open. After recent postal service changes, Mill Spring mail routing is now handled in Columbus, but post office officials say the changes will not affect customers. Local residents circulated a petition in support of keeping the post office open, saying the recent changes make them fear closing the post office will be the (Continued on page 5)

Columbus studies drainage issues by Leah Justice

The Town of Columbus now has a study of storm water drainage issues throughout the downtown area. Columbus Town Council met Thursday, June 16 and reviewed the study, which was completed recently with grant funding. Billy Lee and Alwyn Smith, with Withers & Ravenel, met with council

and detailed the town’s problem areas. Columbus applied for funding for the study in 2008 with the N.C. Clean Water Management Trust Fund (CWMTF). The town was approved for $50,000 of funding in 2009, but the state funding was suspended in 2010. The funding was released this year, with the town’s

School lunch prices

2010-2011 Disparity

2011-2012 Disparity

preK-5th $2.00 $0.46 $2.10 $0.36 6th-12th $2.25 $0.21 $2.30 $0.16 Note: Disparity amount is the difference between Polk’s prices and the amount reimbursed by the federal government

Polk school lunch prices to be higher in 2011-2012 by Samantha Hurst

Per a federal mandate, Polk County Board of Education members voted to increase lunch prices next year. Superintendent Bill Miller said boards across the country are now faced with hiking lunch prices to equalize the variance between what the school charges for lunch and what the government reimburses across the board for students on the free lunch program. “What the feds are saying is, ‘You have to address this,’” Miller said. “Every year we’re going to have to come back and look at this [our lunch prices]. We’re going to be on this train until someone decides this [our pricing] is back in line.” The minimum amount boards could increase prices by was $.05, while the maximum they could increase prices by was $.10. Polk County BOE members chose to increase the cost of lunch for preK-fifth grade students from $2 to $2.10. Students in sixth-12th grade will see only a 5-cent increase. Those students paid $2.25 last year, but will pay $2.30 beginning in August. “We’re trying to close a wider gap in K-5 prices than in

sixth-12th,” said board chairman Geoffrey Tennant. Lunch prices for elementaryaged students will increase by a larger margin because the disparity from the national average is greater than the disparity at the middle and high school levels. The federal lunch reimbursement program currently refunds Polk County $2.74 per day per student eligible for the program. This means the local system receives 46 cents more than the national average for preK-fifth grade students and 21 cents more for sixth-12th grade students. Polk County receives more because of the number of students in the area that qualify. Miller said he has heard claims the federal government could require systems to fully close the gap within three years. He said this could be difficult with a variable like inflation – higher gas prices, food costs, etc. – affecting school lunch prices. One benefit to the local school system is a small increase in revenue from lunches. Polk County schools sold 68,100 lunches last year to students not on the free or reduced lunch programs. Adding 10 cents to all those lunches would have netted the school $6,810 on the year.

next step. The Polk County Board of Commissioners met Monday, June 20 and approved a resolution in favor of keeping the Mill Spring Post Office a full-service facility. The petition was presented to commissioners during the meeting, and a few residents spoke about the issue. Commissioner Renée McDermott said she brought up the item at an earlier meeting held in Saluda after hearing from citizens who are very concerned about the future of the Mill Spring Post Office. Judy Arledge said Mill

Spring area residents want to keep their post office full service. She said the rural carriers’ routine was changed recently to have them pick up their mail in Columbus. According to Arledge, 1,629 deliveries are made daily and carriers drive 230 miles in making those drops. The Mill Spring Post Office serves the areas of Mill Spring, Sunny View/Coopers Gap, Pea Ridge and White Oak. It was established in 1871. The county’s resolution and resident petition will be sent to senators, Congress, the postmaster general and the governor, among other state and federal officials (see full resolution below).

substantial number of bridges in our country may be in need of repair, 11 percent in Polk County alone. as significant as this problem is, it pales in contrast to the bridges we need to build in our lives.

Stanfield wins Tryon Youth Center scholarship

Donald “Chandler” Stanfield, son of Ricky and Kim Searcy, has been awarded the Tryon Youth Center/Henson’s Inc. Scholarship. The Tryon Youth Center Scholarships are $1,000 and are awarded in increments of $500 each semester of the student’s freshman year of college.

He will pursue degrees in finance and physical education, with plans to spend his career as a coach and financial planner.

McFarlands tell PCHA about funeral home’s 100 years in Polk The McFarland Funeral Home celebrates 100 years of service to the community this year. Darlene McFarland and Keen McFarland presented a program to the Polk County Historical Association on June 7 reviewing the funeral home’s history. Top right: Darlene McFarland talks about the embalming table, called the “cooling board,” which was the table bodies were once placed on for the embalming procedure. The board was taken to people’s homes where the bodies were embalmed. McFarland’s placed blocks of ice underneath the table to keep the body cool and a net over the table to keep insects off the bodies. Holes were drilled in the board. The table will be temporarily displayed at the Polk County Museum located in Columbus. Right: Darlene McFarland holds up the McFarland Funeral Home logo as she explains how they used to put the McFarland logo or an ambulance logo on the hearse, depending on what call they were making when the funeral home did ambulance service as well. Below: Attendees at the recent Polk County Historical Association meeting look at a display of historical embalming equipment McFarland’s used. (photos by Leah Justice)
