Both girls worked behind the scenes and said they enjoyed learning about making a movie. “I got to help them with what they had to say. I got to help them with their clothes and makeup and Miccoa with shooting the clowns with the silly string,” Miller said. The girls and their peers directed Miccoa Rice, the main character, as he weaved a path through the school past evil clowns at the front door, mean girls in the hallways and tumbling ninjas in the cafeteria to finally reach “The Holy Cupcake.” “Covering the clowns with silly string to stop them and playing the iPod to stop the mean

Green collaboration by Samantha Hurst

Empty gallon vinegar jugs and used vegetable oil are bolstering a fresh business idea in Polk County. A collaboration between Mountain View BBQ’s Shane Blackwell and Be Kind Solution’s Tawana Weicker has allowed the restaurant to become greener in an innovative way that has been quickly catching on around the country in recent years. Blackwell and his staff collect used vegetable oil from their fryers and trade it with Weicker, who then uses it to create biodiesel and cleaning solutions and soaps with the glycerin byproduct. In return, Mountain View gets a handy supply of cleaning solutions and soaps to use around the restaurant. “The product I was having to buy to clean up grease and such in the restaurant, you had to wear eye protection and hand protection. You don’t have to with this – it isn’t harsh,” Blackwell said. Mountain View cashier and Blackwell’s sister-in-law Elizabeth Russell first spurred Weicker’s interest in biodiesel, and two months ago served as the catalyst for pulling the restaurant on board. Weicker, who was Russell’s English teacher in high school, heard the then senior speak about biodiesel production as part of her senior project. Weicker began doing research on her own and learned she could get a lot of use out of the alternative fuel. Now she takes used vegetable oil

When she separates the glycerin from the biodiesel, Weicker must distill and refine it for 40 hours before transforming it into her non-toxic products. “I honestly don’t use any other soap now,” Russell said. “This is better for the environment. You could eat it and it won’t harm you.” Mountain View washes dishes with the solution and uses it for hand soap in the restrooms. Blackwell said they now carry the products for sale as well. Blackwell said he believes consumers would be surprised by how effective the product is and by how good it makes them feel to support a new local venture.

Grateful for good people To the Editor: Last Thursday, our Great Pyrenees dog, Cotton, panicked

by volleys of gunshots in our neighborhood, escaped and ran onto I-26, where she was killed. Someone called the N.C. DOT, who went out and picked up her body. They found our telephone numbers on her tags, and called us to let us know what had happened. They offered to bring her

collar to us, and at our request, they brought Cotton home. They gently laid her down, and each said how sorry he was that this had happened to our dog. Their kindness made our terrible loss easier to bear. While we have always found the DOT to be pleasant, respon•Experienced & Fully Insured • Accredited by Better Business Bureau jbtr-035353

Letter to the Editor

Don’t vilify wealthy To the Editor: Rodney Gibson (August 31 “Rhyme or Reason�) asserts, “The hoarding of cash by wealthy individuals and corporations is the primary reason for our economic quagmire.� What a profoundly ignorant statement. Suppose for one second a vast evil conspiracy of wealthy people and companies plotted to hoard and hide their vast fortunes from the masses. Just where would they hoard and hide all that cash? Under their mattresses, earning zero return, brought out each evening to light smelly cigars with $100 bills while tee-heeing at the economic misfortune of the helpless peasantry? Mr. Gibson, “the wealthy� didn’t get wealthy or stay wealthy by “hoarding cash.� They became

wealthy through work and investment. Both of those create jobs. And “the wealthy� do only two things with their wealth – reinvest it or spend it. And both of those create jobs. Maybe you genuinely believe the wealthy are evil or have too much cash. But credit them at least for being smart and greedy enough to invest that cash for returns greater than they get by stuffing it under the mattress. Mr. Gibson’s profound ignorance of economics, capitalism, free markets and rational human behavior is shared by the current White House occupant. Both vilify “the wealthy� and try to punish and steal their success with higher taxes and regulatory burdens. Then they complain when “the wealthy� hesitate to invest more wealth for government to confiscate. January 20, 2013 can’t get here soon enough. – Paul Weidman, Tryon

ICC Polk Campus class: ‘Israel: A walk through history’ “Seeing is believing,” says Dr. Jim Murphy, who will guide students on a visual walk through Israel in a class this fall at the Polk County Campus of Isothermal Community College. Students will see present-day sites of ancient stories as well as modern-day life with the help of present-day technology. Dr. Murphy is a biblical scholar who has visited Israel and the Middle East 19 times. His class will meet on Wednesday mornings from 10 a.m. - noon for four weeks from Sept. 14 - Oct. 5. Each week will have a different focus to help broaden attendees’ knowledge and appreciation for the country and its people. Topics will include reviewing the building and the destruction

of Jewish temples, journeying down the Rift Valley (from the beginning of the Jordan River, through the Sea of Galilee, the lower Jordan, Jericho, Qumran, and Masada), exploring various cities of importance (Nazareth, Bethlehem, Cana, Haifa, Bethany and more) with the last class focusing on Jerusalem (a center for three world religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam). Dr. Murphy will return to Israel for his 20th trip to the Middle East next spring, April 30 – May 10, 2012 as he co-directs another tour. For more information on the class, or to pre-register, please call the ICC Polk Campus at 828894-3092. – article submitted by Dr. Jim Murphy

Tips for planting local lawns The Labor Day holiday normally signals it is time to plant cool season grasses like tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass. Tall fescue is the predominant grass in both lawns and pastures in Polk County. Typically, turfgrasses need a minimum of five hours of full sun each day. All grasses except centipede prefer to grow in a soil that has a pH of 6.5. In order to obtain that pH, homeowners need to add lime. In addition, sowing grass seed or “overseeding” on top of our tight, heavy clay soils is not very successful. Some light tilling or at a minimum, aeration of the soil is suggested to improve the chances of your grass seedlings becoming established. Overseeding an existing lawn takes around three pounds of seed per every 1,000 square feet. When seeding bare soil use six pounds of tall fescue seed for every 1,000 square feet. If you are planning to use one of the new turf type seeding blends (5 pounds tall fescue, 1 pound bluegrass, 1 pound fine fescue) you need a total of 7 pounds for every 1,000 square feet. It is always helpful to have a soil test completed to help determine what lime and fertilizer is needed.

Soil boxes and forms are available at the Polk County Extension Center in Columbus. If you plant seed grass remember to mulch the new lawn and bare areas with wheat straw. The straw needed is approximately one square bale of weed-free wheat straw for every 1,000 square feet. After applying the straw, a homeowner should have 50 percent of the bare ground visible. This straw helps keep the soil surface from drying out too quickly. Keep in mind that watering is critical the first 10 to 14 days unless it rains. The latest research also indicates that fertilizing three weeks after seed germination is more beneficial. Use a rate of fertilizer recommended, 10 pounds of 10-10-10 per every 1,000 square feet, or use the special slow-release turf fertilizers at the rate shown on the bag. Contact the Polk County Master Gardeners at the Extension Center in Columbus if you need additional information on establishing a lawn. They can be reached at 894-8218 mornings Monday through Friday. – article submitted by John Vining

Molting cardinals surprise some bird enthusiasts Bald cardinals with somewhat reptilian bare black heads - who ever would see such a thing? Well, welcome to the heat of midsummer and with it the reports of bald-headed northern cardinals, blue jays and even common grackles. Every year I get emails and phone calls describing these mutant-looking birds that aside from their featherless heads otherwise look exactly like the aforementioned species. I must admit that the first time I saw one of these somewhat bizarre looking by Simon birds I thought it Thompson must have been very sick. Most birds molt their feathers twice a year, replacing all or most of their feathers over a period of a few weeks to a month or so. This is easily seen in our summer resident scarlet tanagers. The males are brilliantly colored red with black wings and tail when they arrive in the spring. By the time late summer rolls around the males’ red feathers are slowly being replaced by green. The birds retain this green plumage through the winter months on their wintering grounds, only regaining their red coloration before they begin to again move north in our spring. It is the same with indigo buntings. The males lose their bright blue plumage in September and molt to a very even brown before their southbound migration. They then superficially resemble the plainer females and immature birds, but they do retain some blue feathers in their wings and tail. As in many species, male indigos will molt back into their spring finery before they return north to breed. Even during their spring migration some of the males appear in a rather unusual combination of brown and blue feathers. Here in the mountains of Western North Carolina, many of our

The Bird Box

resident birds also molt in late summer, usually after they have finished their breeding season. With many species, such as tufted titmice, Carolina wrens or Carolina chickadees, it’s not very noticeable, but with others the results can look very peculiar indeed and this is especially noticeable in cardinals and blue jays. Annual molting may indeed be part of the “baldness syndrome,” but it also may be a result of an infestation of feather mites or lice. It seems as if immature birds undergoing their first molt may be just as likely as adults to undergo this feather loss and we don’t really understand why they lose all of their head feathers at one time. Staggered feather replacement is the normal molting pattern and

this is where those mites may play a part resulting in the complete loss of the bird’s head feathers. Some recent research has suggested that it could even be a result of a nutritional or environmental factor but I am not so sure about this. To be honest, no one knows for sure, as the condition has not been well studied. Fortunately for the birds, new head feathers do grow in within a few weeks and the birds look less and less reptilian, obviously

none the worse for wear after their summer ordeal. Simon Thompson has lived in WNC for the past 16 years.
