Alexander’s Ford officially certified as part of Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail by Samantha Hurst

Plumes of smoke rose from the just-fired muskets of reenactors Wednesday, Oct. 5 commemorating the certification of Alexander’s Ford in Polk County as an official part of the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail. Paul Carson, superintendent of the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail, said he and local volunteers have worked since 2005 to have the 162-acres of Alexander’s Ford included. “It feels great to finally recognize such a significant part of the Patriots’ journey to Kings Mountain… this was for many of the soldiers that went on to that battle the last place they would lay their heads down to rest on (Continued on page 4)

has been burdened with large numbers of surrendered or stray animals. “As the county grows, the animal population grows,” KellickGrubbs said. “So, every day it’s a full-on effort to find the animals homes.” Beatrice will be one of the more than 150 animals available for adoption this Sunday, Oct. 9 at the FHS Emergency AdoptA-Thon. FHS board member Bertie Phayer said the board decided to host the adopt-a-thon out of necessity and the heartbreak of seeing such an influx of animals waiting for homes. “Tiny little kittens come in that people find in paper sacks… I don’t know how our volunteers handle it every day,” Phayer said with a hint of tears in her eyes. “This is not normal. We had a late puppy and kitten season and are just at the peak of that and need to find

homes for these precious animals.” The shelter currently has 170 animals awaiting new homes and more coming in every day; 17 came in a single day this summer. The shelter is allowed by the state to house a maximum of 75 cats and 55 dogs. FHS remains in compliance because of the kindness of many community members who serve as foster homes, Phayer said. “The foster program is really a critical piece of the shelter program. If we’ve got fosters and we can flex the animals we have in the shelter it allows us to continue to accept the animals that are coming in where many shelters might have to euthanize,” Kellick-Grubbs said. But this Sunday from 1-6 p.m., shelter volunteers hope to find forever homes for as many animals as they can adopt out. The Foothills Humane Society is also diligently working with the community to “keep them home,” in other words prevent owners from turning in their

how to feed them and bathe them and how to train them to do things like sit and stay. (Continued on page 4)

Phayer said the society also currently receives a donation of 1,000 pounds of food from Walmart every three weeks, some of which is offered to owners who had considered surrendering their animals for lack of money to feed them. Phayer said the shelter is also working to establish adoption counselors to ensure families adopt the right pet for them and not one that would cause frustration in the home or need more attention than an owner could provide. Adopting a family pet costs very little initially as there are no adoption fees. “Our pets are priceless, so we kellymoving - page 4

just ask for donations of what people can give,” Kellick-Grubbs said. “On Sunday we’d love to empty the shelter out.” All of the animals available for adoption are also fully prepared to settle into a new home. They’ve been fixed, have all their shots and are microchipped. The dogs have also been well socialized, KellickGrubbs said, through the 100 Percent Recyclable program, where volunteers come in and teach obedience to the dogs and take them on walks throughout the week. Foothills Humane Society is located at 989 Little Mountain Rd. in Columbus. For more information, call 828-863-4444 or visit www. foothillshumanesociety.org.

On Thursday, Oct. 6 the county signed a contract with Equinox Environmental out of Asheville to draft a site plan. “We have a lot of easements to protect it,” Mills said. “With no structures to be placed beyond the first 1,200 feet.” There would also be a need to seek additional funds for archeological studies to identify areas that could include valuable links to the area’s history. Carson said this would be an imperative part of the process because no digging or construction can be done until the areas are marked off. Once these pieces are complete, Mills said, plans for the nature preserve include a short biking trail, an open picnic shelter and hiking trails winding through the property. Mills said the county anticipates a portion of the project to be open to the public by June of next year. Carson said the National Park Service could also underwrite projects for signage and special events such as the educational program held for students earlier on Oct. 5. “If you’re a kid, a fourth or fifth grader, imagine how much of a different learning experience it would be to come out here and walk the path where soldiers walked versus reading about it in a book,” Carson

said. Alan Bowen, president of the Overmountain Victory Trail Association (OVTA), led 380 Polk County students on an excursion through Alexander’s Ford. “Our goal is to get kids on the trail and hiking, plus expose them to history,” Bowen said. “As we walk along the trail the student cross paths with our reenactors who relay a portion of the story about these courageous men.” He said the parents observing the educational programs also see the trail’s significance and that only furthers the preservation effort. “We had several adult chaperones with the kids here earlier today that said, ‘You know I’ve lived here my whole life and didn’t even know what I was looking at when I came by here,’” Bowen said. Two property owners came by interested in having their property certified as part of the trail as well, he said. “It literally took an act of Congress to get this started,” Bowen said. “We’ve got a long way to go but we’ve made a lot of headway.” The OVTA plans to return with reenactors on Oct. 5, 2012 to give additional educational programs to local students and community members as they continue their almost four-decade effort to honor the 330-mile trek to King’s Mountain.

Three injured in major I-26 wreck Wednesday, Oct. 5

Three drivers were taken to area hospitals after a major accident near the bottom of the Saluda Grade section of I-26 Wednesday, Oct. 5 around 7 p.m. According to the N.C. Highway Patrol, Donnie Jones of Griffin, Ga., a tractor-trailer driver, said he jumped out of his moving truck after it lost its brakes. The Highway Patrol said the truck crashed through a guardrail and continued for about a mile, spreading debris on the highway, which caused another truck to overturn and hit three other vehicles. One of those injured was reportedly in serious condition Thursday,, Oct. 6, but the others were less seriously injured. According to the N.C. Highway Patrol, charges are pending in the incident.

A Day in the Country Sunday The Tryon Riding & Hunt Club (TR&HC) will present the second annual A Day in the Country on Sunday, Oct. 9 at the Green Creek Equestrian Park. The Green Creek Equestrian Park, the new home of the TR&HC, is a developing equestrian facility that is expected to be the site of the popular Block House Steeplechase within the next couple of years. Last year’s event was a laid back day of classes set on an outside course, harking back to Tryon’s equestrian roots, and this year will be much of the same. The event provides a chance to enjoy a picnic lunch while watching the competi-

tion and get a preview of the new park. In addition to the open jumping classes in the morning, there will also be an open pleasure flat class, sponsored by Lillie Brown, for horses and ponies of any breed, type or discipline. The Ride-a-Buck class, last year’s most entertaining class of the day, will also return. New to the 2011 event is a hunter pairs class in which a pair of riders, representing a local equestrian organization or community non-profit, will complete a jumping course together. The winning pair will earn $500, donated by Camp Wayfarer, for their group.

Mary Jo Pittman

Mary Jo Pittman, 77, of Green Creek passed into the Lord’s arms on Oct. 6, 2011 following an extended illness. The beloved wife of Charles E. Pittman, Mary Jo was a daughter of the late Ralph and Iris Edwards. A resident of Green Creek since childhood, she was a graduate of Green Creek High School and the Rutherford Hospital School of Nursing. Her career as a registered nurse was one which she cherished and which suited her generous and loving heart. She served as the director of nursing at St. Luke’s Hospital following many years there as the in-service training director. Later, she became the first resident nurse at Tryon Estates. Mary Jo played vital roles in the development of the first nursing program at Isothermal Community College, as well as the start up of the first ambulance and EMT services provided by St Luke’s Hospital. Many local health care professionals recall how she encouraged them to continue their education and career paths as caregivers. A lifelong member of Hickory Grove Baptist Church, Mary Jo enjoyed her church family as she shared her talents as a Sunday school teacher, choir member and participant in the joyful women’s mission group. Always with a kind word encouraging others to persevere with character, she stressed to all her love and dependence on her Lord Jesus Christ. Psalm 19:14 reads “Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.”

Friday, October 7, 2011

Mary Jo is survived by a family who loved and respected her immensely: her husband of 56 years, Charles E. Pittman; her son, David Pittman (Donna) and her daughters, Shay Hahn (Ronnie) and Tami Frazier (Mike). Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren will miss Gran-Gran greatly; they include Marche Pittman (Jennifer), Noah Frazier, Graham Frazier, Jacob Pittman and Celia Pittman. She is also survived by her faithful and adored sister, Evelyn Gee, and her loving brothers, John Edwards and Glenn Edwards. Many special in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews loved, and were loved by “Aunt Jo.” She was preceded in death by her parents as well as two brothers, Charles “Fay” Edwards and Wallace Edwards. Mary Jo was also blessed with many cherished friends, three of which were lifelong and continued to shower her with love throughout her illness; thank you, Marlene Fisher, Gayle Hembree and Reba Hodge. The family would like to thank the many special caregivers at Benson Hall and White Oak Manor for the kind and respectful care they gave to one of their own, a nurse who loved them all. The family will receive friends from 1:30-2:45 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011 at Hickory Grove Baptist Church. Funeral services will follow at 3 p.m. Saturday at the church, conducted by Dr. Michael Keel and Rev. Gary Lockee. Burial will be in the church cemetery. In honor of Mary Jo’s very generous and compassionate nature during her life, the family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to Samaritan’s Purse, P.O. Box 3000, Boone, N.C. 28607 or to Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, 322 Eighth Ave, 7th floor, New York, N.Y. 10001. Condolences may be left at www.pettyfuneralhome.com.

AFS welcomes exchange students to Polk County On Sunday, Sept.11, more than 40 American Field Service (AFS) volunteers, host families and students gathered at Cotton Patch Farm, home of Mark and Faith Jorgenson, for a party to welcome this year’s AFS students. For the 2011 - 2012 school year, four Polk County families have opened their homes to a foreign exchange student through the AFS program. This year’s students are from Norway, Brazil, China and Switzerland.

Since 1978, the Polk County Chapter of AFS has facilitated the hosting of more than 130 foreign students. These students have joined the community to live, study in local schools and become immersed in a new and different culture. Polk County AFS has also sponsored more than 95 local high school students to study abroad. This year, Anders Krarup is studying in New Zealand and Korey Smith is studying

in Panama. Both students’ trips were partially funded by a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation. AFS is managed by volunteers who have first-hand experience with the student exchange process. Volunteers provide foreign students, local students studying abroad and their families with step-by-step help and advice. Polk County AFS makes every effort to provide financial

help to hosting families and scholarships to local students who study abroad through an AFS program. If you would like to become involved in AFS Polk County, please contact Henrik or Lone Krarup at 828-863-4020. AFS Polk County operates under the umbrella of AFS-USA, a 501 (c) (3) organization. Contributions are tax deductible. – article submitted by Brenda Brock

struggling with hunger, according to a study released recently by MANNA FoodBank and Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization. The study, entitled “Map the Meal Gap: Child Food Insecurity 2011,” found that 29.9 percent of children under the age of 18 in Western North Carolina are “food insecure.” North Carolina ranks 11th in the nation with a child food insecurity rate of 27.3 percent, and Buncombe County nearly matches that average at 27.5 percent. Nearby counties have even higher rates, such as Graham County at 39 percent and McDowell at 35 percent, according to the study. “It should shock every single person in this community that we could let this happen here,” said Renae Brame, executive director (Continued on page 21)

The economic impact of North Carolina’s wine industry grew by nearly 60 percent and the number of wineries doubled between 2005 and 2009, according to a study recently completed by the N.C. Commerce Department. The state estimates the wine industry had an overall impact of $1.28 billion on the state’s economy in 2009, up 58 percent from four years earlier. According to the survey, the industry added 1,900 jobs over the four-year period, supporting 7,600 jobs total as of 2009. The state said much of the increase can be attributed to more tourists visiting North Carolina’s 106 wineries, spread out over 49 counties. Nearly half of the jobs in the state’s wine and grape industry in 2009 were supported by tourism. “This growing industry is a significant economic engine for North Carolina, helping to preserve farmland and bring revenue to our

We all have to see it, and it has to be everybody’s responsibility to take a stand.” MANNA Executive Director Cindy Threlkeld said the figures reinforce the stories they hear on a daily basis about children who are “food insecure,” or don’t know when their next meal is coming because of poverty or other issues. Threlkeld said people can contribute time, money or food to help MANNA and its partner agencies provide more help “so that one in four children in WNC won’t have to struggle with food insecurity.” – source: Asheville Citizen Times, 8/24/11

According to the census bureau, the midwest saw the biggest decline at 8.4 percent, followed by the west at 6.7 percent, the south at 6.3 percent and the northeast at 3.1 percent. – source: www.scbiznews.com, 9/14/11 *** A new program aimed at giving more state government contracts to North Carolina businesses is working, according to N.C. Gov. Bev Perdue. Her office said the state has awarded 28 price-match contracts to North Carolina businesses since April, keeping $10.7 million in tax dollars in the state. The N.C. Business Preference program allows North Carolinabased businesses to match a low bid submitted by a non-North Carolina business. The original bid from the North Carolina business must have been within 5 percent or $10,000 of the lowest bid. The governor’s office gives the example of R.W. Moore Equipment Company in Wake County, which matched a low bid of $2.4 million for motor graders after its original bid was within 5 percent of a Virginia company’s bid. “I strongly encourage North Carolina businesses to take advantage of this opportunity,” said Gov. Perdue, who created the price-matching program to help grow jobs in the state. “For just 5 percent of the bid, you may be able to beat an out-of-state company. That’s good news for you, for your employees, and for the state – where we want to keep North Carolinians in good jobs today and in the future.” The list of 21 North Carolina companies that have benefited from the program so far includes North Carolina LLC of Asheville, which was awarded a $41,117 contract

Are you 100% sure if you died today that you would go to Heaven? You can be sure! How to Find New Life in Christ

This is what the Bible tells us: By nature, your heart runs from God and rebels against Him. The Bible calls this "sin." Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Yet God loves you and wants to save you from your sins. To give you this gift of salvation, God made a way through His Son, Jesus Christ. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” You receive this gift by faith alone. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Will you receive Jesus Christ right now? 1. Admit your need (I am a sinner). 2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent). 3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for You on the cross and rose from the grave. 4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come into your heart and life through the Holy Spirit (Receive Him as Lord and Savior). If you are choosing right now to receive new life through Jesus Christ, pray this prayer. Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name, Amen This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ. To deepen this relationship you should: 1. Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better. 2. Talk to God in prayer every day. 3. Tell others about your commitment to Christ. 4. Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a Bible-teaching church. If you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, please let us know. We want to rejoice in what God has done in your life and help you to grow spiritually. If you have questions please call:

The report said Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, which administers the health plan for the state, tagged only 1 percent of health care payments as overpayments. However, state auditor Beth Wood said studies show that 3 to 10 percent were overpayments, resulting from either mistakes or fraud.

Specifically, Wood found the health plan overpaid N.C. Baptist Hospital by $1.34 million. The state health plan, which provides coverage for 660,000 state workers, teachers, retirees and dependents, has lost money for years. The General Assembly and Governor Bev Perdue reached a compromise this year on health care reforms, which include making workers pay for their own coverage for the first time. State auditors also have recommended the use of software that will catch potential overpayments and provide more oversight of the state’s contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield. – source: www.newsobserver. com, 9/13/11; www.wral.com, 9/13/11

Pavillon dedicates new admissions center for addiction treatment Facility named Holl Center to honor two Polk residents

In a dedication ceremony this week, Pavillon Treatment Center named its new admissions building in honor of Polk County residents Dale and Patty Holl. With dignitaries, colleagues, staff and friends in attendance, the 6,500-square-foot building was officially named the Holl Center in recognition of the Holls’ long-time involvement with Pavillon. “The factors that contribute to the achievements of an organization like ours aren’t adequately portrayed in headlines or even through remarkable milestones like this,” said Anne Vance, CEO for Pavillon. “These achievements are the result of determination and involvement from people such as yourselves who have been committed to the work

of Pavillon over the long haul.” From its earliest beginnings in Canada to its eventual move to North Carolina in 1996, Pavillon has been the recipient of the Holls’ time, talents, professional skills, creativity and generosity, Vance said. The new facility will handle patient admissions, intake counseling, family intervention and administrative support. Previously all of those functions were handled in Pavillon’s existing building, alongside the patients’ residential section. Completion of the center now clears the way for renovations to the existing building for a new medical detoxification unit and updated clinical treatment areas. “An ever-increasing patient census, along with corresponding growth in staff, had resulted in some serious overcrowding and a growing concern for patient and family privacy,” said Tom Covington, chairman of the board.

Fire safety tips from Glassy Mountain Fire Department Fire prevention week open house to be held Oct. 15 On average, seven people die in home fires every day. In 2009, U.S. fire departments responded to 362,500 home structure fires causing 12,650 civilian injuries, 2,565 civilian deaths and $7.6 billion in direct damage. “Nearly all of these deaths could have been prevented by taking a few simple precautions like having working smoke alarms and a home fire escape plan, keeping things that can burn away from the stove and always turning off space heaters before going to bed,” says Bryan G. Riebe, chief of Glassy Mountain Fire Department (GMFD). “Fire is a dangerous opponent, but by anticipating the hazards, you are much less likely to be one of the nearly 13,000 people injured in home fires each year.”

GMFD offers the following tips to protect your family from fire: • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove or portable space heater. • Have a three-foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters. • Replace or repair damaged or loose electrical cords. • If you smoke, smoke outside. Use deep, wide ashtrays on a sturdy table. “While preventing home fires is always our number one priority, it is not always possible,” Riebe said. “Our residents need to provide the best protection to keep their homes and families safe in the event of a fire. This can be

achieved by developing an escape plan which you practice regularly and equipping homes with lifesaving technologies like smoke alarms, fire detectors and home fire sprinklers.” The following tips will help keep families safe in case of a fire: • Install smoke alarms inside each bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home (including the basement). • Interconnect all smoke alarms in the home so when one sounds, they all sound. • Test smoke alarms at least monthly and replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old, or sooner if they do not respond when tested. • Make sure everyone in your home knows how to respond if the smoke alarm sounds. • Pull together everyone in the household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible ways out.

Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. • If you are building or remodeling your home, consider installing home fire sprinklers. Glassy Mountain Fire Department will host an open house at 2011 Hwy. 11, Landrum, on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for fire prevention week. All are invited to participate in the educational, family-oriented activities, including the Scotty Fire Safety House, a hands-on learning tool to teach people of all ages what to do in the event of a fire. In addition, CVS will hold a flu shot clinic from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the fire station.

Goodnight Irene: Father’s favorite song “Goodnight Irene� was the headline just after Hurricane Irene tore through the east coast, reaping havoc wherever she went. Seeing those words “Goodnight Irene’ brought back so many thoughts and memories that had nothing to do with the hurricane, yet had everything to do with the hurricane. I’ll try to explain. “Goodnight Irene� was my father’s favorite song, and my father was a binge alcoholic. When he was on a drinking binge, he’d sing that song and want to dance with my mother, or me. Remembering him singing the song is a bittersweet memory. He sang it when he was happy, and he was happiest when he was drunk. As a teenager my father’s drinking habit was embarrassing at best, and I tried to distance myself from him in any way that I could. But there’s a problem with that. I’m very much like my father.

Polk looks for comeback in conference

A varsity soccer player grabs a bit of air as he attempts a shot on goal against Madison. (photo by Virginia Walker) by Samantha Hurst

With a hearty chant before their game against Madison Wednesday, Oct. 5, Polk’s varsity soccer team set their minds on getting on top in the game early. No. 4 Jordan Brown made sure that happened when he nailed one into the net for the Wolverine’s first point on board of the evening. After several calls on the Wolverines for running offsides, including one that canceled out a goal, the team went into halftime up 1-0. In the second half they sought further redemption from a prior losing streak with a goal each for No. 2 David Abril and No. 3 Lee

Arrington. Polk gave up its only goal on the evening with just 8:36 left on the clock. “We just needed to get some confidence back,” said Coach Lennox Charles. “We’ve had three defeating losses back to back and that brought the team’s moral down. I’m hoping with this win tonight and hopefully another success tomorrow against RS we can charge forward in the second half of the season.” Charles said in the games against Owen (1-0), Henderson (4-1) and Thomas Jefferson (5-1) the Wolverines allowed their opponents to score within the first five to six minutes of the game.

Polk JV Soccer player No. 9 Isaac Palmer trails down a Madison forward in an attempt to prevent a shot on goal. Polk beat Madison in a 3-0 victory.

“We’ve really inflicted some pain on ourselves,” he said. “With the better teams in the conference, if you give them anything they’ll run away with a game. We can’t afford anymore setbacks if we are going to stay in things.” Polk faced RS Central Thurs-

day night but results were unavailable at press time. They face Mountain Heritage Monday, Oct. 10 and Mitchell next Wednesday, Oct. 12. Charles hopes to see his team come back with more gusto and move its standings up in conference play.

Wolverines back on road to take on Avery County by Daniel Hecht

With last week’s bitter home loss to the Mitchell Mountaineers firmly in the rear view mirror, the Polk County Wolverines, now locked in a three-way tie for second place in the Western Highlands Conference, have turned their focus to this week’s road trip to Avery County. According to head coach Bruce Ollis, the vibe at the Little Big House has been all good. “Practices have been upbeat and positive,” said Ollis. “You can learn valuable lessons in defeat – trust that has been the case this week.” In sharp contrast to the ground-based offenses the Wolverines have faced the past two weeks, the Vikings present an entirely different defensive challenge for Polk County. “Avery is a more pass oriented team,” said Ollis. “Their quarterback, Alex Villanueva, was the preseason selection as Player of the Year in the confer-

ence.” Indeed, Villanueva has lived up to that billing, leading the conference with over 210 yards per game passing. Avery’s air-based offensive attack is certain to put Polk’s secondary to the test. “Our pass defense must improve,” said Ollis. “Most of our problems in the secondary have been related to not breaking on the ball, not being out of position.” Compounding the challenge for the Wolverines this week are injuries to key players. Cary Littlejohn, who was injured during the final minute of last week’s game, is listed as questionable, and defensive back Deion Twitty, the team leader in interceptions, is out for the season after suffering a knee injury last Friday that will require surgery. “This has been a week where we have told our players that it is not about Avery but about us – we have asked them to rise to

the challenge of overcoming a conference loss.” Ollis is quick to point out that, despite last week’s setback, the goals laid out for the team at the beginning of the season – winning the WHC and vying for a state title – are still attainable.

“We find ourselves in the exact same position we were a year ago,” said Ollis. “We control our own destiny and we must take ownership in that fact.” The action kicks off tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Avery County High School in Newland.

Unitarian Universalist meeting Oct. 9

@ 6:30 p.m.

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176 N. on Oct. 9 at 10:30 a.m. The speaker will be Rev. Jean Rowe who will speak on the topic “Time and Time Again.” “There are all kinds of time: quality time, quiet time, eternal time, kairos, slow time, fast time. We all have the same amount of time in a day, a month, a year, but

how we use it can be amazingly different. Then there’s the wasting of time. Who or what wastes your time? Or is time ever really wasted? Let us reflect on the times of our lives,” stated Rev. Jean Rowe. Come early for fellowship and refreshments. For more information, call 828-894-5776 or visit www.uutryonnc.org. - article submitted by Dan Dworkin

October at the door with a sunny chill, an early visitor “Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.” - Stanley Horowitz October has arrived at the door with a sunny chill and breeze, an early visitor. Scarlet and yellow brushstrokes of color appear in fluttering green canvases surrounded by azure skies. Fuel trucks ply the back roads again, a dread sign of heating bills ahead! Around here, I continue to recover from eye surgery and have been thoroughly spoiled by friends’ good cooking and kindness: knowing ‘chocolate’ is my middle name, one thoughtful soul brought a box of handmade Van’s chocolates, along with a bottle of Italian wine; that’s the best medicine! Prisms and halos appear in my vision: the eye surgeon promises with a smile that this too shall pass. Actually, it’s all rather pretty— from my artistic standpoint. Gratitude seems to be part of daily life these days: just having one more day, to have a roof, to know what truly matters. The little things remain the most precious.

Dear Savvy Senior, I’ve read that there is a new extra-strength flu vaccine being offered to seniors this year. What can you tell me about it, where can I find it, and does Medicare cover it? Flu-Conscious Connie

Dear Connie, The new extra-strength flu vaccination you’re inquiring about is called the Fluzone High-Dose, and it’s designed specifically for seniors, age 65 years and older. Here’s what you should know. Fluzone High-Dose Manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur Inc., the Fluzone High-Dose vaccine was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in Dec. 2009, and was first made available last flu season on a limited basis. The main difference between the Fluzone High-Dose and a regular flu shot is its potency. The high-dose vaccine contain four times the amount of antigen (the part of the vaccine that prompts the body to make antibody) as a regular flu shot does, which creates a stronger immune response for better protection. This extra protection is particularly helpful to seniors who have weaker immune defenses and have a great risk of developing dangerous flu complications. The CDC estimates that the flu puts more than 200,000 people in the hospital each year and kills around 24,000

Savvy Senior – 95 percent of whom are seniors. As with all flu vaccines, Fluzone High-Dose is not recommended for seniors who are allergic to chicken eggs, or those who have had a severe reaction to a flu vaccine in the past. To locate a vaccination site that Norm's Home Repair offers the Fluzone High-Dose, ask & Maintenance your doctor or pharmacist, or check Dependable, theQualified, online flu-shot locator at flu. Reasonable gov for clinics or stores offering flu shots. Call 828-749-1113 Then, contact some in your area to see whether they have the W, F CVS, WalHigh-Dose vaccine. 1/10-2/5 greens, Safeway, Kmart, Rite Aid and Kroger are among some of the chains offering the high-dose shot. You’ll also be happy to know that if you’re a Medicare beneficiary, Part B will cover 100 percent of the cost of your High-Dose vaccination. 2009 But if you’re not covered the cost is around $50 to $60 – that’s about double of what you’d pay for a regular flu shot. Pneumovax Another important vaccination the CDC recommends to seniors – especially this time of year – is the pneumococcal polysaccharide vacW,F and meningitis cine1x1 for pneumonia 10, is15, 17,Pneumovax 22, 24, (the4/8, vaccine called 23).29, Pneumonia causes more than 5/1 40,000 deaths in the U.S. LARL-028884 each year, many of which could be prevented LARL-028884

Savvy tips: In addition to getting vaccinated, the CDC reminds everyone that the three best ways to stay healthy during flu season is to wash your hands frequently with soap and water, cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze and stay home if you’re sick.
