Susan McRostie denounces the idea that art is a “fluff” subject. Step inside her art room at Saluda Elementary School and you’ll see why. The Polk County Teacher of the Year’s art lessons all involve language, math, science and history learned through crayons and acrylic paint. “It makes such sense to reinforce what they are learning throughout the day, especially in these little ones,” McRostie said. “Many students need that sort of tactile learning to help (Continued on page 3)

Polk visitor spending up by 6.5 percent by Samantha Hurst

Spending by visitors to Polk County increased 6.5 percent from 2009 to 2010, according to the North Carolina Division of Tourism, Film and Sports Development. This meant $20.26 million in spending – the highest impact for the county since tracking began in 1991, said Melinda Young of

Polk County Travel & Tourism. “We had a huge jump in 2007 and we really haven’t lost much of that momentum,” Young said. “Polk County saw its impact from tourism jump as much as 11.5 percent in 2002, with tax revenues of $15.12 million. By 2007, that number had grown to (Continued on page 6)

concepts sink in.” During a recent first-grade session, McRostie worked with students who were learning about the African country of Zimbabwe. The students crafted compass roses to learn about directions and in the meantime practiced spelling t-i-n-t and gl-i-t-t-e-r. They also discovered that mixing dark blue paint with white paint creates a baby blue tint, that there are three points on a triangle and that violet, blue and green are considered cool colors. Saluda School Principal Ronette Dill said McRostie is a very strong advocate for the arts. “The way she integrates the different grade-level subject matter really helps make connections for kids. It’s also made a huge difference in our school climate,” Dill said. “Now, you’ll hear kids in class say, ‘Hey, I know what that is - we made one in art class.’” Dill said she wished more educators grasped the need for the arts as an integral part of learning the way McRostie does. “I think if people will understand the importance of the arts and how they can

be used to teach children we could do great things in education,” Dill said. “I think she would be a great advocate for that at the state level, if given the chance.” McRostie said being named Teacher of the Year for the county means a tremendous amount to her. “It’s an extraordinary honor because it draws some much needed respect and attention to the arts and arts education,” McRostie said. Timing could not have been more perfect for the honor, McRostie said, as the first class of preK students she taught at Saluda will graduate from fifth grade this spring. Dill said McRostie’s ability to communicate with students at all levels is another aspect of what makes her worthy of the Teacher of the Year honor. She maintains a packed day, splitting her schedule between the elementary school and teaching art 1 to 10th-12th grade art students at Polk County High School. “She has an amazing ability to communicate with them all at their level,” Dill said. McRostie began working in Polk County in 2006 after a brief “retirement.” Before then she had spent 10 years as an elementary (Continued on page 4)

Polk Central Elementary – Gail Spitznogle Gail Spitznogle received her master’s of education in learning disabilities from Western Carolina University in May 2011. She earned her learning disabilities certification from Converse College in 1997 and a bachelor’s in elementary education from the University of S.C. Upstate in 1990. “Our job as educators is not to just feed our students facts or steps to solve a problem, but our job should be to teach our students to think and problem solve,” Spitznogle said. “It is key that we help guide our students in realizing their strengths and then use those strengths as the building block to all other learning.”

A Travel Economic Impact Model or TEIM is used to study the impact of tourism on an area by focusing on the state sales and excise taxes and taxes on personal income from travel-generated and travel-supported businesses.

Surviving beside her mother are her husband, Marvin L. Northrup of the home; two daughters, Megan Brooks (Josh) of Asheville, N.C.,

and Katelyn Northrup of the home; two sons, Ryan and Kevin Northrup, both of Columbus; two brothers, David Hosier (Denise) of Deptford, N.J., and James Hosier (Michelle) of Jarrettsville, Md.; one granddaughter, Sarah Brooks.

ing goods stores, jewelry stores and pharmacies to automobile transportation, which can include gas stations, rental cars and even tire stores. Young said because of the current economic state many people have taken to day trips, traveling from 50 miles or more away. This, in particular, benefits retail, restaurants, gas and entertainment attractions. A total of $1.13 million was generated in Polk County through state sales and excise taxes,

and taxes on personal and corporate income. Approximately $1.21 million in local taxes were generated from travel-related sales and property tax revenue. While in total tourism revenue Polk County ranked 81st statewide, it ranked 53rd in percentage of increase for the year. Young said the important thing for residents to understand is the impact tourism has on the county. The tax funds collected funnel back into the state and local general funds, representing a

$113.66 tax saving to each county resident, Young said. The study does not include occupancy tax numbers, which are also directed back to the local entity. Data from the study also shows the tourism industry creates more than 170 jobs in Polk County; a total generated payroll of $2.91 million. Gov. Beverly Perdue announced in March that visitors to North Carolina spent a record $17 billion in 2010, an increase of 9 percent from 2009.

Workshop on making quick Shibori scarves at Tryon Arts and Crafts Christine Mariotti will teach a class on creating quick shibori silk scarves on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. at Tryon Arts and Crafts. Shibori is the Japanese technique of manipulating fabric by tying, twisting, scrunching and preparing the fabric for dyeing in numerous other ways. The results are colorful patterns that are repeated throughout the surface and are used in silk scarf designs. Mariotti has come up with some simplified Shibori techniques that will work in a short workshop time and permit the student to make several scarves in one day. Mariotti has been a textile instructor and professional fiber artist for more than 30 years and has exhibited her

silk scarves in many local galleries around Tryon, including the gift shop at Tryon Arts and Crafts. There will be a small materials fee per person for this workshop to cover the cost of scarves and dyes. Advance registration for all workshops is required. For more information about the instructor or workshop, including tuition and supply costs, please contact Tryon Arts and Crafts School (TACS) at 828859-8323 or by email More details and examples of projects are available on the TACS website, There are a limited number of spaces available. – article submitted by Julia McIntyre

When they unexpectedly drove through Saluda in 1994, they decided to leave the big city and move to the quaint little town. “We were enamored enough to go back, quit our jobs, sell our house and become transplants to Saluda,” recalls Powell. Since they are also creative artists working in mixed media, primarily with paper and textiles, the couple opened their first retail art space in the shop of another artist in 1995. After a year, they felt confident that their business would be a success and decided to go out on their own, opening the first Random Arts on Main Street. The business thrived in that location, Powell and Aabye said, and they built a strong following. Random Arts also offered classes with a variety Jane Powell and her husband, Paul Aabye, of internationally reopened Random Arts in Saluda in September. known instruc(photo submitted) by Robin A.

Random Arts of Saluda is back. After closing their successful retail space on Main Street in 2009, owners Jane Powell and husband, Paul Aabye, finally found the right location to reopen their business of “assorted goods for creative mindfulness.” They fell in love with a restored, historic, Craftsman Style bungalow at 481 Louisiana Avenue, just two blocks off of Main Street, that has a large off-street parking area, three retail areas and a studio/classroom space that can accommodate up to 18 students. The business opened on Sept. 22. “There is room to grow our space with outdoor classroom space and additional parking,” said Powell. “With the help of jewelry artist Louise McClure, this huge white canvas of an interior became a plethora of

Students also began showing up from as far away as Colorado, Florida, Ohio and everywhere in between. When the rent more than

doubled in December 2009, the couple decided it was time to look for another space in town. “During that time, which took about a year, we continued to hold workshops in a temporary location to keep that energy flowing,” says Powell. Open Thursday, Friday and

Benefit for Polk Wellness Center features Watson’s Riddle The musicians of new jazz fusion group Watson’s Riddle will perform a benefit concert for Polk Wellness Center on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC). The concert, which will highlight the release of the band’s new CD, includes a pre-concert wine-tasting reception sponsored by Trio Vintners of Walla Walla, Wash. All proceeds benefit non-profit Polk Wellness Center in Columbus. Watson’s Riddle is a new instrumental group formed in Upstate, S.C., by veteran guitarist Steve Watson and drummer Paul T. Riddle. Watson has performed on records by B.B. King and Dolly Parton and recorded music for network TV shows and film. Paul T. Riddle is the drummer and founding member of The Marshall Tucker Band and toured with The Allman Brothers Band, winning a Grammy Award

Watson’s Riddle

for his contribution to the live album, “2nd Set.” Watson’s Riddle includes bassist Tim Lawter, formerly

of The Marshall Tucker Band; keyboardist Hazen Bannister of The Swingin’ Medallions; and guitarist Rusty Milner, also a Marshall Tucker Band alumnus. Watson’s Riddle was conceived when cardiothoracic surgeon Douglas Appleby, M.D., encouraged his friend and guitar instructor Steve Watson to write music that was “emotionally engaging, relaxing and transforming to the human soul.” Shortly after the CD was recorded, Dr. Appleby attended “The Heart Health Summit” put together by The Renaud Society, an international society of medical professionals with an interest in better health and a passion for wine. There, he met Trio Vintner’s owner, Karen LaBonte, and asked her to listen to a rough cut of the new Watson’s Riddle CD. Inspired by this new brand of jazz, LaBonte bottled a 2009 Mourvedre named after the band. LaBonte is sponsoring the wine for the reception at TFAC before the musicians take the stage. This show will mark the band’s debut concert featuring original music from their selftitled CD, which is currently climbing the Top 50 Chart, as well as the

Top 50 Indie Star Chart. Polk Wellness Center (PWC) formed in 2008 as a local solution to a national problem: the lack of affordable medical and mental healthcare set against the backdrop of an increasing need for services. PWC opened its doors to treat patients and clients with insurance and without. Using an integrated care model, Polk Wellness Center offers an approach to treatment designed to empower patients/clients to take control over their health and wellness. Tickets may be purchased at the Tryon Fine Arts box office at 828-859-8322. Each ticket includes the wine tasting, as well as non-alcoholic beverages and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 6:30 p.m. The concert will begin at 8:00 p.m. Polk Wellness Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering family medical care, mental health, substance abuse counseling, patient education and wellness services to residents of Polk County and surrounding areas.

Properly establishing goals and objectives In the last article we shared plans for developing the second step of the proposal – the need statement. In this article we will continue to talk about the steps for writing a successful grant, but focusing on the goals and objectives. The goals and objectives section for the grant proposal should be written to let the funder/grantee/foundation know what your organization hopes to accomplish with your project/ program/equipment. It should also state the specific results or outcomes you plan to accomplish during the funding period stated by the funder. What is a goal? Goals should be extensive, universal, intangible and abstract. A goal should describe the final impact or outcome that your organization wishes to bring about as a result of the funder providing funds for your grant proposal. When writing goals for the grant proposal, make sure the goal always reflects and is connected to the need statement previously written in the proposal. In writing the goals, try using “creative thinking words” in your goals. Examples would be to… improve, increase, produce, decrease, deliver and develop. An example of a well-written goal would be: “Decrease the degree of malnutrition among

Nonprofit Leadership Melissa Le Roy

young children in Western North Carolina.” What is an objective? A goal is only as good as the objective(s) that follow it. The objective represents the stride or strides toward accomplishing the goal of the program/project/ equipment. In contrast to the goal, an objective is contracted, specific, tangible, real and can be measured. Some tips to help you write the objective(s): state your objective in quantifiable terms, state the objectives in terms of outcomes, specify the end product of an activity, identify your target audience or the communities in which the grant will be serving, ensure your objectives are reasonable and able of being accomplished within the grant period stated by the funder. An example of an objective to go with the example goal given above would be: “By the end of year one, provide 224 mothers in Western North Carolina with a one-hour training program that will provide health and nutrition information.” Some additional tips for you when writing your goals and objectives:

• Always tie your goals and objectives directly to your need statement • Make sure to include all the groups and individuals in your target population that you will be serving • Don’t push yourself or the organization - allow plenty of time to accomplish your objectives • Remember that objectives are different from your methods (we will discuss this in the next article) • Spend time thinking about how you will measure the change projected in each objective (keep in mind while thinking, if there is no way to measure the objective it is not an objective and needs to be re-written • Don’t forget to include in your grant budget a line item for measuring the objectives The next article will continue the steps for writing the grant, focusing on the third step of the proposal – the method section.
