• School of fish (continued from page 1)

In preparation, students built the Sunny View Sea at the school by turning a hallway into an ocean tunnel like the one they encountered at the aquarium. “It’s amazing what the students have done, and the teachers as well,” said Sunny View teacher Holly Owens during the Polk County School Board meeting on Oct. 10. “This trip has just been an eye opener – we have touched the ocean through science, math, language arts….” Students learned about many aquatic creatures, including turtles, fish, sharks, penguins, jellyfish, crabs, sea horses and stingrays. They also learned many details about sea life, such as that the average length of a blue whale is 98 feet and the average length of a bottle(Continued on page 4)

nose dolphin is 9 feet. “The piranhas did not look very scary, but they had spiky teeth,” said second-grader Carley Lawter. “I also had fun at the Shark Lagoon. I was surprised they didn’t eat the little fish. Thanks to the Polk County Community Foundation for helping me learn about fish.” The grant application was written by first-grade teacher Genie Phipps, second-grade teacher Julie Wilson and principal Kevin Weis. “Sunny View School has 71 percent of our students receiving free and reduced lunch,” said the grant applica-

tion. “Twenty-six percent of our students are served by our Title One program and 17 percent are served in the Exceptional Children’s Program. In light of our economic climate and the high percentage of our students on free and reduced lunch, our staff feels that the majority of our students would not get the opportunity to go to an aquarium in the near future.” The principal, teachers, staff and parents took the students for the day-long trip, with the school PTO providing snacks. “We asked a lot of our students had they ever been to an ocean or the beach and the majority of them had not,” said Wilson. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students here.”

Landrum selects John Walters for depot renovations by Samantha Hurst

Landrum City Council unanimously approved moving forward with John Walters Architects of Tryon for the redesign of the town depot after a question-and-answer session Tuesday, Oct. 11. John Walters said he appreciated the vote of confidence from the city and the opportunity to improve such a historic landmark. “It’s very visible in Landrum – it’s right on 176, so it will be a lot of good exposure for the town and will clean up that entry area,” Walters said. “We’re very excited.” Walters said the intent is to get the depot as close to its original look as possible while updating electrical and mechanical systems. Renovations will also update the look and feel of the meeting space, while adding new handicapped-accessible restrooms and a kitchen area. There will also be additional exhibit space. Walters is currently updating plans based on comments from city council members. Landrum City Administrator Steve Wolochowicz said one of the changes involved moving the proposed stage from under a curved pergola to be connected instead with the stoop at the end of the depot. Wolochowicz said they believe that would leave

the area in front of the stoop to set up chairs and listen to music during events. “I think that was a real good idea. We’d still leave the curved pergola in there because it’s a nice architectural feature and provides shade,” Wolochowicz said. “The council has really put some time into thinking about what would be best for the redesign.” Walters said he anticipates beginning work on the

2,300-square-foot building in the spring, with bids going out for construction in early 2012. Engineers will go through the building with architects next week. Then Walters said final drawings could be drafted.

“Looking at train depots from the past – old photos and such – we were trying to pick up that same feel,” Walters said. “Trying to take a traditional form and make it a real entryway.”

Polk County library offers free yoga class Nov. 3, 10 The Polk County Public Library (PCPL) will offer its first experiment with yoga classes held in the community room of the Columbus location. With a trial run in November, the free yoga class will be offered on Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m. on Nov. 3 and

Nov. 10. Walk-ins will be welcome until 12:10 p.m. Classes are free for Polk County Public Library card-holders. Tryon resident Elaina Prevett will instruct the group. Participants must bring their own yoga mat. Tracey Daniels, PCPL’s community relations special-

ist, expressed support for the yoga program and for its likely continuation in 2012. “The trend in big urban libraries is to provide fitness classes in addition to bookrelated programming,” she said. “I think it’s a perfect outreach initiative for our library and makes sense for

our community, too.” If the class is well attended, library officials said additional fitness programs are likely. For more information about the Polk County Public Library’s programs and resources, visit www.polklibrary.org.

Tryon candidates answer questions from Bulletin Editor’s note: The Bulletin asked municipal candidates to answer questions about local issues. Below are the answers provided by Tryon candidates. 1. What will be your top priorities if elected to town/city council? George Baker: My top priority will be to ensure Tryon continues to live within its means and to scrutinize expenditures both expensed (reoccurring), and capitalized. Roy Miller: My priorities will continue to focus on solutions for the future of our water plant, whether that is selling or leasing to keep rising water rates down. Secondly, focusing on our aging sewer and water lines, which are in need of major repair and/ or replacement. Lastly, but most importantly is to keep all of our rates tolerable for our citizens. Alan Peoples: My top priorities are as follows with no particular order: • Renovate town hall to save energy and have usable rental space • Facilitate getting the old Tryon Federal buildings off the market and renovated for use • Find a developer for the maintenance shed area and move it to the sewer plant area • Ensure that we can keep our tax rate low • Work with other organizations to promote Tryon • Continue work on a facelift for all of downtown Jim Scott: Keeping the town expenses in line with tax revenues without tax increases, while maintaining an acceptable level of town services.

issue facing Tryon is the recognition that it is a town of LESS than 1800 people. It cannot be everything to everyone. Many of the events and festivities, while wonderful, wind up being for people who do not live and pay taxes in Tryon. These expenses must be closely scrutinized and planned in a way which does not become a burden on taxpayers. Roy Miller: 1. Aging infrastructure 2. Dilapidated structures 3. Lack of economic growth 4. Water rates 5. Street repairs/resurfacing 6. Speeding 7. Debt (payments) If re-elected I would continue to address these issues. There is no easy fix for most of these issues, but some such as speeding and economic growth can be resolved with minimal financial impact. Alan Peoples: Our largest concern is maintaining quality services for the residents of Tryon and doing it within the parameters of a struggling economy. One way for us to do this at this time is to reduce the number of employees that we have; we just did that in the water department with a retiree, and we are looking at doing the same in other areas. A second way is for us to reduce the number of cars and/or other equipment whenever possible. A third way is to outsource some work to the private sector. Jim Scott: There are several issues facing the town. The most serious is the declining revenues due to the economy along with the flat or declining tax base. Expense control will be essential to resolving this problem.

2. What issues do you see facing the city/town and what would you do to address those issues during your term?

3. All small towns are seeing significant decreases in state revenues as a result of the eco-

George Baker: The biggest

nomic downturns of the past several years. How do you plan to overcome those shortfalls in revenues in the future? George Baker: See question 1 above - as revenues dwindle from one source they must be replaced by new revenues or the corresponding services or expenditures must be trimmed. New revenue sources are few in a town of 1,800 or less. I did not and do not support forced annexation, a position one if not both of my opponents did not take. We must examine the way we support our various parks, festivals and parades; it is not fair to make the majority of citizens support things they may not want or participate in. Roy Miller: If revenues have taken a hit then we have to cut back on spending and maybe cut back on personnel as we have done in the past. There may be

future decreases in services or service delivery but my last resort is to raise taxes. I have definitely been opposed to raising taxes. We scaled back on trash services from twice a week to one time a week. I also believe we will have to scale back on our capital expenditures if that means reducing the number of vehicles in our fleet or looking at other areas that will allow us to be more fiscally responsible. Tryon has become financially solvent in recent years. But as we continue to take on more and more projects, in particular with aging infrastructure, we need to have that cooperation and a unified source to lessen the burden on any one area. Alan Peoples: We have expected to see the state decrease our revenues and began to plan for these decreases as far back as 2002-03 when the state took roughly $92,000 and then authorized the citizens to vote for a tax increase in sales tax to make

up for the State’s overspending. We have made several moves that have saved monies for the town: • We put almost 100 CFLs and high-efficiency light bulbs at town hall and the fire department. • We have sold used vehicles from one department to another rather than buying two new vehicles. • The new water system upgrade from the mountain will save us about $8,000 or more per year in electrical costs for the water department. • We are always looking for ways to cut expenses. Jim Scott: Continued careful control of all expenses and periodic re-evaluation of areas where there are county/town duplication of services.

4. Recent improvements have been made to homes and infrastructure in Tryon’s Eastside community through state and federal dollars. What other



plans do you have and how would you fund those plans to continue the revitalization of the Eastside? George Baker: Unfortunately there are not a lot of new revenues available; we must continue to work the funding sources of the past while diligently pursuing any new opportunities. We cannot lose the progress that has been made. One solution might be to hire a professional firm that specializes in fundraising for exactly this situation. Their fee could be paid from the funds they generate. Roy Miller: We have began to look at phase two and it’s kind of ironic because we just held the first Eastside summit looking at ways to help spur revitalization. One thing is we will need that partnership with citizens to know exactly what they want in that community to bring it up to standards of every other part of (Continued on page 22)

our community. The future holds removing blighted areas and improving things that will make the neighborhood more aesthetically pleasing and looking to improve infrastructure. But again, all of this comes with a price tag. Hopefully we can go after additional grant dollars but it’s going to come down to everyone buying into it. Alan Peoples: The town has authorized and used an amount that helps with the removal of derelict houses that are a blight on the community. The town has also worked with Habitat to procure some new housing for residents in the Eastside. We will continue to allocate funds, write grants and work for matching grants for the Eastside community and all of Tryon.

Jim Scott: Having served on the Eastside committee for six years, I am pleased with the improvements that have been made there, but disappointed there were not more. The wheels of revitalization move very slowly and we need to speed it up. State and federal grants have been and will continue to be very important, but town money will also be required, especially in the area of condemned and dangerous buildings. 5. Polk County and the towns have attempted during the past year to meet jointly on common issues. How do you feel about partnering with the county, Columbus and Saluda? What are your feelings about partnering with Polk County, Columbus and Saluda on a joint water system for the future? George Baker: Common ground with the other towns and the county has been and I fear will continue to be uncommon until the other two towns realize that it is not in the county’s interest to partner with towns that provide at their own expense

TREASURE - page 30

services that the county must provide for those outside the towns. In essence, we in the towns pay twice, county taxes and town taxes, and until we can get this situation resolved the taxes we pay in Tryon will continue to be more than the taxes we pay to the county. Harmon Field is a good example. It is used by the entire county and more but paid for by Tryon Township residences. The water system is another example of Tryon residences paying twice. The county purchase of Lake Adger was funded by everyone in Polk County, yet we have had to undertake to refurbish our own system to the tune of millions by the time it is totally done. This water canard has been bandied about for more than a decade and nothing has happened because no one will relinquish control. All eventually go their separate ways congratulating themselves that they are still in control. Roy Miller: I was a councilmember when we first sat down to try and form a countywide water system. I’ve always been open – we need to provide the best possible services for our citizens and I think we have to do that as a collective body to maintain a viable water source. I think water is the most important issue facing all of us – securing a longstanding water source for everyone. I would like to see, however, that this is equally shared between the municipalities and the county. I don’t want to see a majority body with control over a water authority. I think there are also other things that we can work together on – a countywide law enforcement. I think it would be beneficial to see municipal substations functioning under a countywide system. I’d also like to see countywide partnership on events that allow the entire area to benefit such as events like the Blue Ridge Barbecue Festival. If we pool our resources together on many of these topics we can get a bigger bang for our (Continued on page 24)

Study: N.C. second most innovative state in nation Visit our new Website!

Research Triangle Park’s reputation as a leading center of innovation was supported by a recent study by The Daily Beast. Raleigh, Durham and Cary, the three cities surrounding the Triangle, came in fifth, 16th and 19th, respectively, on the list of the most inventive cities in America. The rankings, based on the number of patent applications filed by businesses in the respective cities, made North Carolina the second most inventive state in the country. Only California had more cities in the top 25 ranking. According to the N.C. Department of Commerce, Research Triangle Park is home to more than 170 global companies that “foster a culture of scientific advancement.” The area is also home to some of the country’s leading research institutions, with Duke University in Durham, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill near Cary and North Carolina State University in Raleigh. Cary had 930 awarded patents and 412 new patent applications in 2010, while Durham had 595 awarded patents and 398 applica-

tions. Raleigh had 1,032 awarded patents and 578 applications, but had lower per capita rates in those categories. – source: www.ncthrive.com, 10/3/11

significant losses because of the weak real estate market, which left many developers unable to proceed with projects and repay their loans. Blue Ridge was declared insolvent after it was unable to raise capital holdings to meet a minimum capital requirement. The three other banks closed this month, located in Georgia, New Jersey and Illinois, brought the total closed this year to 80. The total is well under the pace set last year when the country had 132 banks closed by this time. – source: www.citizen-times. com, 10/14/11 *** Carolina First lost about 35 percent of its deposits in South Carolina after it was sold last year and rebranded TD Bank, according to figures from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC). While TD Bank lost deposits, Wells Fargo, Bank of America and BB&T gained market share in the state, based on figures as of June 30. FDIC figures show Carolina First lost $1.78 billion in deposits between June 30 of 2010 and the same time this year. Synovus Bank, operating as NBSC in South Carolina, also lost deposits, falling by $1.01 billion or about 27 percent. Meanwhile, deposits rose by $320 million at Wells Fargo, $468 million at BB&T and $737 million at Bank of America. Wells Fargo is the largest bank in the state ($12.01 billion in deposits), followed by Bank of America ($9.04 billion), BB&T ($6.66 billion) and First Citizens ($6.08 billion). – source: www.gsabusiness. com, 10/4/11 *** The N.C.

of the state. The state said rates are “somewhat lower” in Asheville, although it did not provide specific figures. According to the healthcare website www.vimo.com, Mission Health System has some of the cheaper costs for nonsurgical treatment of a heart attack, with a procedure cost ranging from $7,900 to $11,100, about 27 percent below the national average. The same procedure is about 3 percent more expensive at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte and 6 percent more at WakeMed in Raleigh, but it’s 16 percent less expensive at the hospital in Wilmington. Other figures showed health insurance costs in Asheville are comparable or slightly higher than those available in Raleigh. In 2004, the WNC Healthcare Initiative published a study of employer insurance costs that concluded insurance rates are too high in the Asheville area. The report noted that in 2002 an economic development task force said one company declined to locate a plant in the area because

The study also found that Blue Cross insurance rates for large and medium groups were 12 percent higher than in other parts of the state, and physician fees were about 8 percent higher compared to other areas of the country. Mission completed a report of its own that found costs were higher in North Carolina overall compared to the rest of the nation, and WNC was 8 percent higher than the rest of the state. The hospital’s report attributed the higher costs to higher rates of smoking, disabilities and obesity, along with an older population. – source: Asheville Citizen Times, 10/10/11

*** The S.C. Charter School Advisory Commitee rejected an application for a public charter school in Greenville that planned to focus on renewable energy and resource. The K-12 Greenville Renewable Energy school would have been the first energy-based school in the state. However, the state advisory committee said the application did not meet standards under the Charter Schools Act relating to student-teacher ratio, measurable goals, grade level academic standards, a grading scale and more. The charter school organizers said they plan to reapply and hope to open the school for the 2012-13 year. Akif Aydin, co-founder of the River City Science Academy in Jacksonville, Fla., said he originally applied to start a charter school in Greenville focused on math and science.

By comparison, only 78 restaurants in New York City, about 0.6 percent of the approximately 14,000 eateries in the city, have the green designation. AIR worked with the Blue Ridge Sustainability Institute to obtain a $285,000 grant from the N.C. Green Business Fund, and the restaurants will put up an additional $100,000 for the upgrades.

Landrum quarterback Brandon Cannon runs through a large hole provided by his blocking receivers last Friday against Southside Christian.

With just two games left on the schedule, the Landrum football team is in the midst of one of its strongest seasons ever. The Cardinals are flying high at 7-1. They’re getting strong play from their offense. That offensive intensity has been matched with a strong defensive play.

Last Friday night, it was the defense that stepped up big for the Cardinals in a home win against Southside Christian. The offense sputtered, but you’ve got to believe that head coach Russell Mahaffey and offensive coordinator Tucker Hamrick will have the issues worked out this week against Blacksburg. The Wildcats travel to Landrum for

a region battle and the Cardinals can certainly smell a region championship in the air. The Cardinals are a perfect 4-0 in region play and a showdown with Christ Church looms next week. The Cardinals, however, aren’t looking past Blacksburg. They have showed a tremendous focus each week and have showcased an ability to dominate or

comeback in any situation with their dangerous offense led by quarterback Brandon Cannon. A win this week will put the Cardinals in territory they’ve been in before. The region race is generally decided by the last game of the season, which is always Christ Church. Landrum and Blacksburg kick off at 7:30 p.m.

Wolverines hit road for showdown against Owen The Polk County Wolverines are back on the road this evening, travelling to Black Mountain for a date with the Warhorses of Owen High School. While every contest is important, with just two games remaining in the regular season and the Western Highlands Conference championship on the line, tonight’s showdown carries a particularly keen sense of urgency. The Wolverines, 7-2 overall and 4-1 in conference competition, come into tonight’s game tied for first place in the WHC with Hendersonville and Mitchell. Since, barring major upsets, both the Bearcats and the Mountaineers figure to prevail this evening, a Polk victory against the Warhorses is crucial if the team expects to remain in contention for the conference championship. “For us, this game is the conference championship game if we want next Friday’s game to hold the same significance,” said Polk head coach Bruce Ollis, referring to the season finale next week against the Bearcats at the Little Big House. In order to come out on top

tonight, the Wolverines must first stop the run. “Owen is primarily a ground based team on offense,” said Ollis. “For the most part, they will line up in the I formation and run right at you.” The powerful Warhorse running attack also sets up a very effective play action pass game, particularly by use of the bootleg pass, an area of concern for Polk coaches. “Our pass defense has been a major concern for us as we have given up big numbers the past couple of weeks,” noted Ollis. “We must get a better pass rush, which will in turn upgrade our secondary play.” The return of Caleb Wilson and Tyler Ridings to the lineup tonight should help the Wolverines in what figures to be a dogfight. “Every game with Owen over the course of the past six years has pretty much gone down to the wire,” said Ollis. “Our players and coaches are aware of the fact that Owen handed Mitchell their only loss of the year a few weeks ago, so we certainly will not underestimate them.”

Having not yet turned on the light and sitting up in pitch darkness, I felt the other two cats dive from the bed onto the floor, followed by Bonnie and Rosie. There was a scuffle, high pitched yaps and a long shriek that ended abruptly. Fumbling to turn on the bedside light, I pulled the covers tightly around my chest and peered cautiously over the other side of the mattress catching the triumphant eyes of Bonnie holding a dead rat in her jaws. A field rat had found a small hole in the bottom of the french door screen and had worked his way through into the house. Jumping out of bed and and trying to back out of the room, each step I took was followed by an advancing one by the dogs. (Continued on page 33)

“Take that thing outside!� I whispered hoarsely on the edge of hysteria, to Bonnie who, naturally, dropped the rat at my bare feet, wagging her tail in expectation of praise. “Oh, dear God in Heaven...� I sighed and, rushing to the mudroom to grab a plastic grocery bag, put my hand on the outside of the bag, and grimacing, scooped it up and deposited the still warm body outside. Closing the french doors firmly, I realized with a shudder that what I had felt leaping in the boxsprings was not Tippy at all, but rather, a rodent scrambling for his life followed by a pack of domesticated pets for whom Christmas had come just a bit early. “Funny,� said Paul, hours later. “I didn’t hear a thing.

Tryon Little Theatre’s ‘My Three Angels’ The comedy “My Three Angels,� is set in 1910 French Guiana, on the Atlantic coast of South America, just north of Brazil. The temperature is 105 degrees outside and pretty much the same inside. French Guiana’s Devil’s Island penal colony frequently furnishes convicts as cheap labor to local residents and right now three are up on the Ducotels’ roof of their combination home and shop making repairs. In the Tryon Little Theater’s Nov. 10 - 20 production of Sam and Bella Spewack’s highly popular play, “My Three Angels� features inept, kind, honest Felix Ducotel and his wife, Emilie. They fear they are about to be booted out of their home and shop by Felix’s, greedy cousin Henri Trochard. Meanwhile, their beautiful daughter, Marie Louise, is desperately in love with Henri’s nephew Paul, who is completely under Henri’s thumb,

and slated to marry a singularly unattractive girl who comes with a lot of money. And there’s crafty Madame Parole, who has made an art form of running up an unpaid tab at the Ducotels’ shop.

There are also three convicts: Joseph, a superb salesman who could sell ice cubes to penguins and is in jail for masterful swindling; Jules, a kind man at heart who was forced by circumstance to strangle his unfaithful wife; and Alfred, who dreams of romance but finds himself hampered by being incarcerated for killing his step-father with a poker. On Christmas Eve, while up on the roof, they overhear the various serious dilemmas the Ducotels

find themselves in, and being the souls of kindness underneath, the three convicts decide to make everything right again. Director Lavin Cuddihee has announced his cast. Appearing as Felix, Emilie and Marie Louise Ducotel are TLT veterans John Hugill, Carol Cox and Mattie Carruth. As bombastic Henri, John Calure, with his nephew Paul played by Alex Tapp. As Madame Parole, Joanne Alderman. As a visiting lieutenant, Alan Searcy. In the roles of the three convicts: Edward Harrelson as Joseph; Joshua Moffitt as Jules; and making his TLT debut as Alfred, Jeremy Wood. The box office will open Thursday, Oct. 27 and after be open Monday - Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the TLT Workshop, 516 S. Trade St. Telephone reservations are accepted at 828-859-2466. - article submitted by Connie Clark

Actors Katie Duncan and Jerreth Emory bring literature to stage for the third year of TFAC’s fall tour. (photo submitted by Marianne Carruth)

High School seniors tour with TFAC

All inclusive luxury tours for the senior traveler.

The week of Oct. 24 Tryon Fine Arts Center’s (TFAC) touring production of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” hits the road with 14 scheduled performances in half that many days. The cast and crew, including several tour veterans, will set up and perform the 50-minute version of Washington Irving’s ghost story in nine venues from Spartanburg to Rutherfordton. Doing the fall tour has become a tradition for several high school actors. Seniors Katie Duncan, Jerreth Emory and Alexa Hughes have participated since the tour’s inception in 2009. Emory will spend time on the road playing the role of Ichabod Crane in both N.C and S.C. Emory is also drum major for the LHS marching band. “This experience mostly helps with time management,” Emory said. “The tour forces you to discover what your priorities are and how to say ‘no’ to going out as opposed to the homework that is due.” “It can be intimidating to pull into the next show space and have absolutely no idea how to set up,” said home-schooled senior, Alexa Hughes. Behind the scenes, Hughes operates sound and lights at every stop on the tour. “I keep doing the tour to learn new things. I would love to pursue a career in theater, so everything I learn every year helps me to get to that goal.” “I keep doing the tour because

as an actress I stretch myself to new heights that I didn’t even know I had,” said Katie Duncan. Duncan also is a drum major, musician and dancer. Tour Director Marianne Carruth said, “These seniors are talented and dedicated students who make tremendous demands on themselves, committing to a variety of activities both scholastically and personally. They hold themselves to high standards and TFAC has been fortunate to work with them over the years.” A public performance of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” will be held at TFAC on Sunday, Oct. 30 at 3 p.m. With props and costumes loaned by Tryon Little Theater and sponsored in part by Duke Energy Foundation and Costco, the tour is offered free to the public. Donations are welcome. Contact Marianne Carruth for more information at 828-859-8322, ext. 213. - article submitted by Marianne Carruth

Domestic violence awareness month: ‘Hoping, Helping, Healing’ Editor’s note: The following was submitted by Steps to HOPE in observance of October as Domestic Violence Awareness month. Real healing can be a lengthy and uncomfortable process. We must first address and heal that within us which formed, attracted or manifested the condition in the first place. With surgery or a long term illness we know that we need time, proper treatment and care in order to become whole and sound again. The same holds true for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault who not only need physical healing but tremendous emotional healing

for restoration of self, a process that can be long and painful. Healing for abusers is also essential if they are to become free of the emotional state that causes them to batter. Steps to HOPE provides victims of domestic violence and sexual assault safe shelter and resources to help them begin a new life free from abuse. Steps to HOPE offer the Domestic Abuse Intervention Program, which helps both men and women learn proper skills to deal with anger. Call 828894-2340 if Steps to HOPE can help you or someone you know get on the right path to healing. - article submitted by Cherie Wright

ing self-talk. Amendola is a local Priestess, ordained according to the Order of Melchizedek. She has worked with healing in the human energy field since the 1980s.

Among Powell’s friends were those from Hickory Grove Bap-

Fall is preferred planting time Now is the time to consider transplanting new trees and shrubs into your home landscape. For 29 years, Polk County Extension Center has promoted fall planting as a preferred time over a spring planting time. Why try fall planting? Unlike our neighbors to the north, our most stressful weather for plants is during the summer months. Fall planting is recommended for two main factors. First, the plants are going into dormancy with cooler temperatures and shorter days. This tends to lessen transplant shock on new plantings. Second, while the top growth of plants has stopped, the plant roots will continue to grow through most of autumn. This in

turn will help plants survive our hot and often dry summertime conditions. Plants can be transplanted anytime during the year but the amount of follow up care varies depending on the season. The optimal time to set out most new plants is during the month of October. Now would be a time to start shopping. If you have any questions about transplanting new trees and shrubs, the Polk County Master Gardeners are available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon at the County Extension Center in Columbus. They can be reached at 828-894-8218. - article submitted by John Vining

Best foods to include in meals for older diabetics Dear Savvy Senior, My 62-year-old husband was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. As the cook in the family, I’m interested in finding out the best diabetic foods that he should now be eating, and where I can put my hands on some good diabetic cookbooks. What can you tell me? Diabetic Caretaker Dear Caretaker, Eating healthy is important for everyone, but it’s even more important for the nearly 26 million Americans who have diabetes – half of whom are over the age of 60. Here’s what you and your husband should know. Diabetic Super Foods A healthy diet, coupled with regular exercise and medication (if needed) are the keys to keeping your husband’s blood sugar under control. To help meet your husband’s new dietary needs, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) offers a list of top 10 super foods for type 1 and type 2 diabetics. These are foods that contain nutrients that are vitally important to people with diabetes, such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamins A, C and E. They’re also high in fiber which will help your husband feel full longer and keep his glycemic index low so his blood sugar won’t spike. And, they’ll help keep his blood pressure and cholesterol in check, which are also critical for diabetics. Here’s what they recommend he eat plenty of.

Savvy Senior Beans: Kidney, pinto, navy, black and other types of beans are rich in nutrients and high in soluble fiber, which will keep his blood sugar steady and can help lower his cholesterol. Dark green leafy vegetables: Spinach, collard greens, mustard greens, kale and other dark, leafy green veggies are nutrient-dense, low in calories and carbohydrates. Your husband can’t eat too much of f these. Citrus fruits: Grapefruit, oranges and other citrus fruits are rich in vitamin C, which helps heart health. Stick to whole fruits instead of juice. Fiber in whole fruit slows sugar absorption so your husband will get the citrus fruit nutrients without sending his blood sugar soaring. Sweet potatoes: High in vitamin A and fiber and low in glycemic index, sweet potatoes won’t raise your husband’s blood sugar at the same level as a regular potato. Berries: Whole, unsweetened blueberries, strawberries and other berries are full of antioxidants, vitamins and fiber. Choose fresh or frozen berries for salads, smoothies or cereal. Tomatoes: Raw or cooked, this low-calorie super food offers vital nutrients like vitamin C, iron and vitamin E. Serve sliced, steamed, broiled or stewed, as a side dish, in salads, soups, casseroles or other dishes. Fish with omega-3 fatty acids: Salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines and albacore tuna

are high in omega 3 fatty acids that help both heart health and diabetes. But stay away from the breaded and deep fat fried variety. Whole grains: Pearled barley, oatmeal, breads and other wholegrain foods are high in fiber and contain nutrients such as magnesium, chromium, folate and omega 3 fatty acids. Nuts: An ounce of nuts can go a long way in providing your husband important “healthy fats” along with hunger management. They’re also contain a nice dose of magnesium and fiber, but don’t overdue it. Nuts are high in calories so a small handful each day is enough. Fat-free milk and yogurt: These dairy foods provide the calcium and vitamin D your husband needs, and they’ll also help curb cravings and between-meal snacks. More information For additional information on healthy food choices for diabetics, including hundreds of free recipes, visit the ADA Web site at diabetes. org – click on “Food & Fitness,” or call 800-342-2383 (press option #4) and ask them to mail you a copy of their free booklet “What Can I Eat?” The ADA also offers a wide variety of diabetic cookbooks that you can purchase through their online store at shopdiabetes.org or 800-232-6455. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
