Columbus approves mutual aid agreement with state

Columbus Town Council during its Oct. 20 meeting approved a statewide mutual aid agreement with the N.C. Division of Emergency Management. The agreement was made so that in case of an emergency, other Howard's antiques - agencies Page 12 throughout the state can assist the town and the town can assist other agencies. The statewide agreement does not affect the town’s already existing agreement with local agencies.

Foothills Fire District candidate Cynthia Fowler spoke to Landrum Republicans Oct. 24. Fowler explained the role of the district in communicating to the residents what they need to do to be safe from fire that could cause damage to themselves or their properties and in supporting the Landrum and Tryon fire departments. The Foothills Fire District has a contract with the two departments for services. The district group sets the mileage rate and seeks grant dollars to support those departments. The district is made up of five commissioners – residents from Lakeshore Drive around Lake Lanier and several offshoot roads including a portion of Doug Hill, Lake Road and Butter Street, among others.

Columbus Town Council agreed at its Oct. 20 meeting to apply for a $44,000 N.C. Rural Center grant for a water system model. The model will help the town apply for construction grants to fix problems in its water system. The grant is a 50/50 match, meaning Columbus would have to contribute $22,000 towards the project if awarded the grant.

interior renovations this week, according to Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson. The new DSS building, located off Wolverine Trail in Mill Spring, is nearing completion. County officials had hoped to be in the new building by the end of this month, but the schedule is for DSS in Tryon to be closed on Friday, Nov. 18 to move and reopen in the new building on Mon., Nov. 21. The contract timeline is for the construction to be complete by Nov. 14, which Whitson said is on target. “We’re really not late as far as the contract goes,” Whitson said. “We had just hoped it would be finished a couple months early.” The new DSS building is the most high-tech building the

county has ever constructed. Opening into the approximate 12,000-square-foot building are double doors that are highly secure with lockout capabilities. In the hallway that leads to 40 offices, lights are often not needed during the day because of solar tube skylights. Some rooms have sensor lights that come on when someone enters the room and go off minutes after the room is empty. “I expect the lowest utility bills in this building of any building the county owns per square foot,” said Whitson. The county opted to make the new DSS building comply with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification standards, which are designed to cut down on energy costs.

(continued from page 5)

The building has full security and video cameras, a conference room, kitchen, break room and storage areas for files. The building also includes a shower for decontamination purposes, such as when staff needs to decontaminate a child taken from a meth lab home, and an observation room that includes a see through mirror. The budget for the new building is currently on target at $2 million, which includes the building itself, LEED certification, grading of the property, landscaping and utility connections, including water and sewer extensions. The building is named after Tryon veteran Howard Greene,

who was active in the Army during WWII. The entire campus is smoke free, including no outside smoking, to meet LEED certification regulations. Landscaping work began this week and will include planting cherry trees on the corner, maples along the front and shrubs around the building, as well as mulching. Polk commissioners vowed a few years ago to get all county offices out of the Jervey Palmer building in Tryon, which was originally constructed in the late 1920s as St. Luke’s Hospital. The building is aged and costly to maintain. Commissioners have not yet discussed how the county plans to (Continued on page 7)

dispose of the building. The Jervey Palmer building has had several uses since the county began using it in the early 1970s, when the new hospital was built in Columbus. The building most recently housed DSS, mental health services, the Meeting Place senior center and veteran’s services. At times it has housed the county transportation department and Polk County Isothermal Community College, as well as a daycare center run by the DSS. Polk County has spent approximately $4 million getting its departments out of the Jervey Palmer building, including $2 million to construct the new DSS building, approximately 1.7 million to purchase and renovate the former Carolina Classical School building for the Meeting Place Senior Center and $110,000 to purchase the building for mental health services. The county also renovated and

leased a building behind the senior center to house an adult day care center. The senior center property, located off Skyuka Road in Co-

lumbus, also includes 28 acres the county plans to use in the future. Polk County DSS Director Sue Rhodes is retiring on Monday.

Commissioners began interviewing candidates for the position this week but have not yet announced the new director.

He is a member of Columbus Baptist Church, where he has served as deacon and youth director. “After moving here 24 years ago, my wife and I were welcomed into this community, and we have become a part of it,” Hall said. “It has been the best place to raise our children, and we consider it an honor to be a part of it.” (Continued on page 14)

“As a town leader,” Hall continued, “I have tried to bridge the gap between the past and the future. We need to preserve our heritage and our history as we make wise choices about the changes we choose to embrace. This is a critical time in the history of Polk County, because what we do today will influence the quality of life for our future citizens. I see myself as a servant of the people. The citizens elected the board and entrusted us with a sacred thing – the running of our town. I pray every day that God will give me the wisdom to make the right decisions.”

Ernie Kan (council candidate) Ernie Kan lived in Raleigh, N.C., until she moved to Columbus seven years ago. After attending N.C. State University in the early 70s with a major in botany, she met her husband, Edward, at church. They were married in 1984 and had their son Isaac in 1991. Wanting to raise him in a small-town atmosphere, they moved to Columbus in 2004. To learn about the area, Kan attended as many town and county meetings as possible. She became the executive director of ReExpressions of Polk County (a group that promoted and handled recycling for area events). She served on the Columbus Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment, and she worked on the walkability committee and other small committees in the area. Kan said she would like to see Columbus retain its rural smalltown atmosphere. “Success of a town does not always mean sprawl or uncontrolled growth,” she said. “A town’s success requires that the people enjoy living there.” To keep in touch with her constituents, Kan has weekly office hours at Columbus Town Hall. “Ernie’s Art” booth at the weekly Columbus Farmer’s Market gives her still more interaction with the public. “I care about everyone in Columbus, but especially those on

fixed incomes,” Kan said. “I have proven that I am able and willing to listen and to make a positive difference.” Kan was the major force behind the repairing of the sidewalks around courthouse square, and the planting of the nearby flowers. She is the chair of the 2011 and 2012 Fabulous 4th committees. She also works with the town manager on other projects. Ricky McCallister (council candidate) Ricky McCallister resides in Columbus with his wife, Eva. He has two children and three grandchildren. Born and raised in Whitney, S.C., he served in the U.S. Marines from 1968-1974. He is a member of Midway Baptist Church and is currently employed by G.E. Lighting Solution of Hendersonville, N.C. McCallister said he enjoys racing, golfing and spending time with his family. Eric McIntyre (mayoral candidate) Eric McIntyre is a native of Polk County and graduated from Polk Central High School in 1975. He received a bachelor of science in business administration from Western Carolina University in 1980. In 1985 he married his wife, Tammy, and his son Russell was born in 1991. Realizing the importance of raising their son in a small-town atmosphere with an excellent educational system, they returned to Columbus in 1996. Russell graduated from Polk County High School in 2009 and is currently a junior at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. “While serving on the Town of Columbus Planning Board and Zoning Board, I observed the challenges facing the town and saw the direction needed,” McIntyre said. “I ran for the position of mayor because I believe that strong leadership can preserve our small-town atmosphere while building and securing our future.” McIntyre was elected in December of 2009, and is currently serving his first two-year term as mayor.

Columbus 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 Columbus candidates. Incumbent council member Richard Hall, incumbent council member Ernie Kan and Ricky McCallister are running for three seats. Current councilman Michael Gage did not seek re-election this year. Incumbent mayor Eric McIntyre is running unopposed. 1. What will be your top priorities if elected to the Columbus Town Council? Richard Hall: To be prudent and conservative with the taxpayers’ money. To continue to work with other council members to ensure the wise use of the town’s money in order to keep taxes low and provide exceptional services. To keep the mechanics of the town’s infrastructure functioning

at the highest level possible. To provide our outstanding town employees with the tools they need to do their job. Ernie Kan: My top priority will continue to be representation of the citizens of Columbus’ thoughts, ideas and needs. I would also like to continue to be available on Tuesdays each week at the Columbus Town Hall to listen to the concerns of the citizens. Through working with the Polk County Appearance Committee, DOT, summer camps, county and town committees and garden clubs, Columbus continues to be a place of natural beauty with many local interests. Ricky McCallister: My top priority as always is to address all future issues that may arise, with a resolution based on correct information received and how that resolution would affect our town and its citizens. Reaching resolu-

tions with positive outcomes is always my goal. Eric McIntyre: To keep the town moving forward with the Foster Creek development, beautification efforts within the town and I-26 corridor. In addition, to keep the sewer plant project on track and keep working with the county and other municipalities on various issues that may be beneficial to all. 2. What issues do you see facing the town and what would you do to address those issues during your term? Richard Hall: Growth seems to be an issue that comes up time and again. Most people I have talked with would like to see our town continue to be small, and that is something I would strongly agree with. In order to do this, I would encourage the support of our

local businesses and continue to filter annexation requests as they come to the council.

Ernie Kan: A top priority on the agenda for Columbus is to make our town a destination people would like to visit. We do not want to add additional financial burdens to citizens and at the same time are looking for creative ways to meet our goals. Columbus is the county seat and has several places of interest that we can promote such as the courthouse, the Polk County Historical Museum, the House of Flags Museum and the Veteran’s Park. I am excited about the opportunity to promote Columbus as a destination people will enjoy visiting. Ricky McCallister: The Town of Columbus has issues large (Continued on page 16)

and small. Some such issues are water, sewer, development and everyday operations. I hope I and other council members will work together as a team to accomplish our goals. Eric McIntyre: The only major ongoing issues are the Foster Creek development and the new sewer project. Each of these will be ongoing for some time. I would like to get fire hydrants in the Beechwood development. I think this has been passed over for many years and there are quite a few houses in the development. Not knowing how our economy is going to be the next few years puts more emphasis on our budgeting process we will go through at the beginning of the year. 3. Columbus has recently agreed to spend $2.75M on upgrades to its sewer plant. Do you feel the town is approaching the payback of the loan correctly in raising its sewer rates? What would be your suggestion to pay back the loan? Richard Hall: The council has discussed reworking the sewer plant all of the eight years that I have been on it. The current council, to their credit, took the time to turmoil over this for quite a while. After a great deal of thought and discussion we decided on the payback to be in the form of a sewer rate increase. Rate increases are never pleasant and if there is a better way I will always be interested in taking a look at it.

Ernie Kan: Raising the sewer rates is not something we wanted to do, but something we had to do. We are now in a place where we know where the money will definitely be spent. After a tour of the sewer plant, and many long discussions in open meetings, anyone could see that this was a wise decision. We reviewed the three ideas

Friday, October 28, 2011

for the town: a joint sewer system with Tryon, replacement of the current system or updating the system we have. We also toured another town’s system that was the same type plan we have. Updating the system was the wiser of the three ideas financially as well as for the citizens of Columbus. The decision was a well-thought-out decision. The town council and town staff have worked out a viable way to repay the loan. Please see the town records for the details of the plan. Ricky McCallister: Our Columbus sewer plant has been in need of an upgrade for many years. I feel confident our current council has explored all avenues to fund this upgrade before raising town sewer rates. Any ideas or suggestions, I would be very interested in hearing. Eric McIntyre: I believe the fairest way to pay back the loan is to raise the sewer rates. We are still continuing to look for grants that may help offset some of the costs. 4. How do you feel about extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) for Columbus? Do you think the town should attempt again to secure ETJ rights to zone one mile outside town limits? Richard Hall: The ETJ was an issue that we spent a good bit of time with a few years ago. I don’t hear much about it these days. However, if this or any issue meets the bar to be brought up again I as a member of the town council would be glad to take another look and seek the will of the citizens. Ernie Kan: The ETJ for Columbus is not being discussed at this time. We are focusing on the town we now have. Ricky McCallister: I don’t think at this time Columbus needs ETJ. The town would have to have a true legitimate need to attempt to secure ETJ rights to zone

• Candidates (continued from page 16)

one mile outside town limits. Eric McIntyre: I believe it would be more beneficial than not to have an ETJ established. However, I also believe that if the town cannot, or is unable to, convince the citizens who live in that area then it is a dead issue and I personally would not pursue it any further. 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, Tryon and Saluda? What are your feelings about partnering with Polk County, Saluda and Tryon on a joint water system for the future? Richard Hall: I have and will continue to look for ways for the towns and county to work together. The goal is to seek ways for all to benefit. From the standpoint of Columbus we have four members on the council and a mayor who are very sincere about the welfare of its citizens. We will all, to the best of our abilities, keep them in mind in any negotiations. Our joint town and county meetings have been very productive if for nothing else to learn that many of our goals are very similar. Community is a benefit to all. The issue of a joint water system is an ongoing dialogue. It is one of those agenda items that must be a win-win for all involved. It must be fair for everyone. Ernie Kan: The four groups have been working on several issues in our meetings. I have been very happy and impressed with the work we accomplished together. I have seen the ways the towns and county have worked on small and large projects while sharing the credit equally. I personally enjoy seeing the peace between all the groups and hope for continued collaboration. As I have said in the joint meetings, I feel that the move

toward the joint water system should be studied in detail by all the people of the county, and a vote by the people should be made. This is a major step that if it is done, it cannot be reversed if things do not go the way we would like. We were given information by another county that had to go to a joint system, and their water rates were raised for all the people involved ( they will also not take on the debts that the water billing covers for the towns). Control of the billing and the water systems would be out of the hands of any of the governments, and we can understand the paying of CEOs and private company workers. This is not something that I feel is right for the county nor the towns at this time. Ricky McCallister: Our county is like a tree with many branches. To be strong, flourish and be nurtured, it needs all its parts. If all our towns and county can work together for a needed common goal for the security of a water system or other major projects, then we could be proud that we truly made a difference. Eric McIntyre: I believe that the county and the towns have had some very beneficial discussions on several topics. I have no issues partnering with the county or any of the other towns. You approach it like a business, get everything in writing that both entities agree to and then you move forward to the next step. As far as the joint water system for the future, I am having a hard time figuring out what the town of Columbus would do to offset the funds we would stand to lose. We are a little different than the others as we have our own wells that we draw from. Our water and sewer receivables pay for a lot in our budget. I’m just not sure at this time how or if Columbus could give this up. It may be a different situation several years down the road when Foster Creek comes on line with the revenues it will bring in. Patience on this is very critical.

Landrum’s Republican precinct invited candidates for Landrum City Council and Spartanburg County Schools District One Board of Trustees to talk with residents Oct. 24 about what they would like to do if voted into office. Bob Walker with the Landrum Republican precinct said he felt it was important for someone in the community to provide a nonpartisan event for residents to meet those running for elected office. “We consider this an excellent opportunity to share with the candidates some of their time and learn more about each one of them,” Walker said. Dr. Ray Henderson Dr. Ray Henderson, a former team physician for Spartanburg High School and Wofford College, was the first candidate to speak. Henderson said he would be a strong supporter of fiscal responsibility and encourager of parental involvement in the education process. “I feel that every child deserves an opportunity at a satisfactory and complete education,” Henderson said. “I feel that each child should be considered as an individual as to which path they choose to follow and should be encouraged to do so.” Henderson was born in Durham, N.C. He obtained his bach-

He spent six years in graduate training, which were interrupted by two years as a battalion surgeon for the military. He spent 47 years as an orthopaedic surgeon and retired in 1999. Henderson and his wife have been married for 56 years. They have three children and eight grandkids. The couple moved to Campobello in 1983. Gorden Lee Gorden Lee is a lifelong resident of Landrum, who until four years ago worked full-time running his family’s dairy farm. Lee is now the assistant super at Village Greens Golf Course

but remains in cattle business on the side. Lee’s father was a District One board member who served for 10 years and Lee hopes to carry on his legacy. “We presently don’t have a voice from Landrum on the school board. I battled with this for a long time and I think that needs to change,” Lee said. “I would be representing all the schools in the district but I love the Landrum community and the people. I look forward to the possibility of the challenge.” His wife teaches at Landrum High School and his children attend O.P. Earle Elementary. Lee is a deacon at New Prospect Baptist Church and was a committee member with Spartanburg Co. Soil and Water. Phil Mosley Phil Mosley is a general contractor and lifelong resident of Landrum and Campobello. He is currently an incumbent on the District One board of trustees. “I’ve been a very lucky person in getting to serve on the school board,” Mosley said. “We’ve got some fantastic things going on in our district. We’ve got administrators that are second to none.” Mosley said the greatest challenges right now surround funding and keeping up with changing technologies. “Of course, state funding and federal funding with any government department has been cut. It

Travis Sloan Travis Sloan, who has served on the board of trustees since 2003, is also seeking re-election. “I’m not a politician, I’m a father,” Sloan said. “I feel that it’s important that we have parents on the school board because I feel like we can hear what’s going on in the school board every day.” Sloan lives in the Holly Springs area with his kids and wife, who is also a teacher at Landrum High School. He said his aim in another term is to keep the bar raised high for the district and its students. Sloan said he initially found his interest in education through his father, who was an educator in District Five for 38 years. He said there would be a bigger gap to make up between the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in the state than there was to bring the district up to No. 2 last year. He said this means continuing to hire quality teachers and supporting them in their endeavors. “We have to increase the height of that bar. We have to challenge our kids,” he said. “More than anything, we want to remain student centered in District One.” Jeff Sumner Jeff Sumner hopes to be elected to his first term as a board of trustees member for District One.

wife, a teacher, for 13 years and they have one son in fifth grade at Inman Intermediate. “My intention is just to be fair all across the board, well-grounded by facts and common sense,” Sumner said. “I want to continue to ensure adequate teacher-student ratio so each teacher can give each student the proper attention. When we hire good teachers we also need to continue to train them at all times.” He said he’d like to ensure good communication between the trustees and the community as well. Sumner himself was educated in District One. He is a member of Holston Creek Baptist Church. He is an Awana Club team leader with third – sixth grade boys, which he said is a great joy in his life. He is also a coach, referee and mentor for Upward sports programs. Sumner has been employed with the Inman-Campobello Water District for 24 years. “I very much would like to be a part of the team that would go the entire distance in succeeding to make District One the No. 1 district in the state of South Carolina,” Sumner said. Board of trustees candidate Derrall Beason was not in attendance because of a prior commitment out of town. Also speaking at the meeting were Landrum City Council candidates. There are three open seats on the council this election, with four candidates in the running. “We’re not here as a Landrum precinct to endorse any candidates,” Walker said. “We wanted to give the candidates the opportunity to come forward – share with us anything they want to share with us.” Johnny Carruth was the first to speak. He said he planned to do his best to ensure tax dollars are spent appropriately. “The way our town is – it’s friendly – let’s try and keep it that way,” Carruth said. “There will be some compromises, there’s no doubt about it, but I promise you I will do the best I can for all the

citizens and have another voice they can talk to on the council.” Jon Matheis spoke next. He is currently on the council for his fourth year. He said the council has done a lot of good work over his last term but he believes there is always room for improvement. “I would certainly like again to be elected as my job, I feel, is not done,” Matheis said. “Bring me your concerns and I’ll work on them as well as I can.” Candidate Joyce Whiteside is also seeking re-election. She said her top priorities are to finish work currently on the table. She said this includes items such as the town’s sidewalk project, work to the depot and seeking new industry and business. “We need to find ways to generate revenue to the city so our citizens do not have to endure a tax hike,” White side said. “We can take a serious look at our spending – let’s put our spending in proper priorities and be more efficient in what we do.” Randy Wohnig became a member of council originally to fill an unexpired term of James Conard. He was re-elected four years ago and seeks to continue serving Landrum. Wohnig and his wife moved to Landrum from Charlotte 10 years ago. “I wish I had been here 25 years ago because it’s just a good life,” Wohnig said. “I love serving in the community.” Wohnig said he has been a part of raised taxes in the area in the past but he’s also been a part of common-sense management of town funds. He said he tries to use common sense in his approach to government. “Things cost more, and taxes do have to raise on occasion to provide services, but this council has not been outrageous with its money at all. We’ve been very conservative and I’ve been happy to be a part of that,” Wohnig said. Anyone within city limits will vote Nov. 8 for Landrum City Council and the District One Board of Trustees. Outside the city limits voters will just be voting for school board candidates.

The foothills area is made up of four incorporated towns and several communities nestled on the North and South Carolina border, which are all rich in history. The city of Saluda is a destination on the National Register of Historic Places as are many structures in and near the towns of Tryon and Columbus and City of Landrum. Columbus, Saluda and Tryon are located in Polk County, N.C., while Landrum is located minutes away in Spartanburg County, S.C. Being at the foothills of the mountains was perhaps the initial draw to settlers in the 1700s, with the railroad bringing populations and visitors to Landrum, Saluda and Tryon. Columbus, Polk County’s seat, is the only area town laid out in a grid pattern. The courthouse, built in 1859 and recently restored, is the second oldest courthouse in North Carolina still in use. The courthouse is also thought to be the first in the state to include women jurors, which occurred in 1944. There are several sites in the foothills known for their historic preservation, including travels back in time at M.A. Pace’s Store and Thompsons Store/ Ward’s Grill in Saluda, Morris the Horse and the Tryon Toymaker museum in Tryon, the depot and historical homes in Landrum and the historic cour tA historical marker explains the house, doughboy and Howhistory behind Morris the horse. ard Monument in Columbus.

Polk County’s history has been preserved at the Polk County Historical Association Museum located in Columbus. Historical books can still be found at the historic Lanier Library, established in 1889 in Tryon. The nation’s history is also being preserved at the nation’s only flag museum, the House of Flags, which is set to open this November in its new Columbus location.

Town of Columbus Founded in 1855, the town was named the county seat and situated in the center of the Polk County. Columbus was named after Dr. Columbus Mills in honor of his efforts forming the county. Columbus houses Polk County and town government offices and has maintained its small, rural atmosphere. The historic courthouse and historic Stearns Education Center, gym and park are located in the center of the quaint downtown.

City of Landrum The City of Landrum was originally known as Earlesville after the Earle family who owned extensive land holdings in the area. Earlesville was established in 1831. The Rev. John G. ... continued on page 23

Landrum donated four acres of land that his wife, Nancy Earle Landrum, had inherited for the railroad depot, which was named Landrum station. On Sept. 2, 1880, Earlesville officially became Landrum. The discovery of gold in nearby North Carolina and railroad lines being planned through the region around the 1870s brought growth to the city.

City of Saluda Polk County’s smallest city is Saluda, which includes approximately 570 full-time residents. Incorporated in 1878, the city takes pride in not having changed much since its founding days. The city was formed around the railroad and is home to the steepest mainline standard-gauge track in the eastern United States. Saluda has many part-time residents, whose families have been spending time there since its inception. Many more southern residents built summer homes in Saluda to escape hot temperatures and enjoy to the city’s cool, mountain climate. The Pacolet and Green Rivers are located nearby. The city’s downtown was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. Saluda is home to the annual Coon Dog

Day festival, which has been ongoing for the past 48 years.

Town of Tryon Tryon was incorporated in 1885 and was established along the railroad in a circle. The town has a strong equestrian and winery history, as tourists from far away traveling by train used to stop in Tryon, many staying at the well-known Oak Hall Hotel, formerly located near the depot. Many artists, writers and actors chose to make Tryon their part-time home, including writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, poet Sydney Lanier and actor William Gillette who was the original Sherlock Holmes. Eunice Waymon, better known as Nina Simone, was born and raised in Tryon. Her home has recently been restored. A plaza and statue of the international jazz singer and civil rights’ activist was dedicated downtown in 2010. The center of downtown includes a wooden statue of a horse, “Morris,” which is still used as a symbol for the town. Tryon is also home to the annual Block House Steeplechase, which was begun by Carter Brown and has been running for 65 years.

Blackout planned for tonight’s showdown at the Little Big House by Daniel Hecht

For those planning to attend this evening’s battle royale at Polk County High School, here’s a word of fashion advice. Save the frilly pink frocks and the pastel party dresses for another game, another time. Tonight at the Little Big House, Wolverine Nation is aiming for a total blackout. Fans are encouraged to attend tonight’s game dressed in black from head to toe, to match the allblack uniforms of the Wolverines, as Polk County hosts rival Hendersonville in the final contest of the regular season. The winner

of this evening’s showdown will earn the crown of Western Highlands Conference champion, a title that Polk County has claimed four of the past five seasons. According to Polk head coach Bruce Ollis, the Bearcats will field a squad that is almost a mirror image of the Wolverines. “Our teams are very similar – we are both 8-2, we both lost to Mitchell by one point, and both lost a nonconference game to a quality opponent. Each of us has five or six players that go both ways, along with offenses that can hit home runs.” Hendersonville is primarily

an I-formation team that runs the ball twice as often as they throw, with QB Grant Rivers handing off to fullback AJ McMinn and tailback Cam Hill. In passing situations, the Bearcats will line up in the shotgun, with Rivers looking for wideouts Shawn Rogers and DJ Wilson. Asked what the Wolverines will need to do to hang another championship banner, Ollis was specific in his reply. “Certainly, we know we must stop their running game in order to put them in a position to do something they don’t want to do on offense,” said Ollis. “They

are very athletic and speedy on defense, so we must maintain our blocks and not get frustrated if they make a big play on defense. Maintaining our focus and composure will play a big role in our success offensively.” To be sure, regular season games don’t get much bigger than this. In addition to playing for the conference title in a fierce rivalry, the Wolverines will also honor the seniors playing this evening in their last regular season home game. The total eclipse begins at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the darkness of PCHS.

Landrum faces fierce rival in Christ Church by Joey Millwood

It’s the game that Landrum coach Russell Mahaffey refused to talk about all season. The Cardinals football team has endured one of its most successful seasons ever on the gridiron. The Cardinals are 8-1 and are one win away from a region championship. Landrum’s one blemish was a game against 2A Liberty that they lost in the waning seconds. Now the last thing standing between Landrum and the Region II-2A Championship is one of its fiercest rivals on the gridiron – Christ Church. The Cardinals have struck a strong balance this season. The offense has been consistently strong, averaging 28 points per game. The defense has stepped up to the challenge and has been dominant at times. They’ve come up with big stop after big stop when the Cardinals needed it most.

Offensively, the consistent thread this season has been quarterback Brandon Cannon. Cannon has thrown for 11 touchdowns and ran for 11 touchdowns this season. Cannon has ran for 698 yards this season and tailback Cole McDowell has ran for 604 yards. Defensively, the Cardinals have been led by Ryan Herbst, T.J. Fincher and Alex Bryant. Herbst leads the team in tackles with 41 solo tackles and ten tackles for a loss. The Cavaliers will come into the game 8-1 as well with their only blemish being a loss to Liberty. The game is shaping up to be a heavyweight fight. It should be an explosive offensive showing with two talented quarterbacks in Cannon and Christ Church’s Hunter Townes. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. at Christ Church.

Polk volleyball eliminated by Pisgah in second round of 2A playoffs by Daniel Hecht

In a disappointing end to an outstanding season, the Lady Wolverines were eliminated Tuesday evening from the state 2A volleyball playoffs by the visiting Lady Bears of Pisgah High School in three straight games, 25-14, 2516, and 25-17. Head coach Heather Claussen, clearly disappointed by the team’s early exit from what was expected to be a long playoff run, gave props to the Pisgah squad. “They served us off the court,” said Claussen, “and we just couldn’t stop their two middle hitters.” While occasional glimpses of the play that earned the Lady Wolverines a conference championship were in evidence, Polk County was never able to put a string of points together against the visitors from Canton. On the other side of the net, the Lady

Bears, led by Katie Hannah with 16 kills and Micah James with 16 digs, scored their points in bunches. Fans of Polk County volleyball have much to look forward to next season, as Claussen’s young squad is expected to return intact, losing no seniors to graduation next year. Still, thoughts of what could have been, and perhaps should have been, linger. “It’s a tough way to go out, losing like that,” said Claussen. “[The girls] didn’t play the way that I know that they can play, and that they know they can play.” For the Lady Wolverines, Savannah Deaver recorded eight kills while Maggie Phipps notched six, and freshman Kara Overholt recorded 19 assists. Polk County finishes the season at 19-5, while Pisgah, now 18-5, advances to the third playoff round to square off against 17-9 North Henderson.

Anxiety: When worry takes over Anxiety is “an abnormal and overwhelming sense of apprehension and fear often marked by physiological signs (as sweating, tension, and increased pulse),” according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary. We all worry, or feel apprehensive, from time to time. We worry about paying bills, upcoming changes to our family structure, maintaining employment, or the declining health of a loved one. These anxious feelings that come and go throughout our lives are normal. But when does that intermittent anxiety become a long-term condition that lessens our quality of life? Occasional anxieties about events that make us all a little nervous are normal, and even beneficial. The physical symptoms of increased heart rate or sweat in conjunction with the worry about the situation can actually produce positive outcomes. That adrenaline can often force our minds to perform and think quickly in the right situation. For example, the apprehension about an important college exam can make one study harder. The worry about walking to a car through a dark parking lot may force someone to be more alert. Not all anxiety is negative. For some individuals, anxiety can progress beyond those natural moments of fear or apprehension that all people encounter on life’s journey. That level of chronic anxiety can mentally paralyze someone, keeping them from enjoying their life and their relationships. When normal worry becomes a chronic, debilitating condition, a person may be dealing with

Journey to wellness by Jim Nagi

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). According to the Merck Manual, “Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is characterized by excessive, almost daily anxiety and worry for greater than six months about many activities or events.” In addition to their daily worrying, patients with GAD usually exhibit physical symptoms such as restlessness, unusual fatigability, difficulty concentrating, irritability, muscle tension, and disturbed sleep. When chronic apprehension and fear interferes with daily living and personal relationships, it is time to see a professional. In treating a patient with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, I use a combination of therapies to help lessen symptoms and enable a patient to take back control of his or her life. Psychotherapy, usually cognitive-behavioral therapy, can be both supportive and problem-focused. The use of anti-depressants can also be effective in the treatment of GAD, however, medication alone is not the answer. Often times, there is a deeprooted phobia or psychological component to the disorder. Over time, a balanced combination of psychotherapy and drug therapy can produce a hopeful outcome.

PCPL donates books to libraries in need The Polk County Public Library (PCPL) is donating more than 250 books to two N.C. libraries that recently suffered weather-related losses. Hazel W. Guilford Memorial Library in Aurora and Greene County Middle School in Snow Hill, N.C. will be the beneficiaries of the PCPL contribution. The goal is to help in rebuilding their children’s collections. Last April, the Greene County Middle School’s media center had major damage from a tornado. The library will be housed in modular units for the next twoyears. The school lost most of their fiction collection due to water damage. In September, the Hazel W. Guilford Memorial Library received severe hurricane damage. Most of the area was devastated and the library finally moved into its temporary location on Oct. 17. The staff is now

ready to receive replacement books. Spearheaded by Children’s Librarian, Joy Sharp, and the Public Services Coordinator, Sharon Spurlin, the staff has gathered books from a variety of sources. From sorting duplicates from the Columbus and Saluda circulation, searching through the recent Friends of the Library annual fall book sale offerings, donations from a local children’s book reviewer and also a local literary public relations firm, the PCPL pays it forward. Although the PCPL staff is not looking for any additional book donations, the library would definitely welcome donations to offset the cost of shipping the books to the library.

Artists donate work to HoCF ‘Boots & Bling’ auction Soon the bidding will begin for donated artwork and other coveted items at Hospice of the Carolina Foothills’ 30th anniversary gala. “Boots & Bling,” an elegant hoedown with music, dancing, food, and an entertaining auctioneer takes place on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 6 - 10 p.m. at the Hospice Thrift Barn in Landrum. Proceeds from the celebration, including the auction, will benefit the Hospice House. Strauss & Associates, PA Attorneys 104 N. Washington Street Hendersonville, NC Dedicated to Preserving and Protecting Your Assets

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. Is there a way I can tell my children?

Q. Is there a way I can tell my

children some personal things outside of my estate plan? A. Yes, we have had clients be very creative in the ways they choose to communicate with their loved ones after they are gone. My own uncle left a very touching and inspirational letter to each of his sons. I have had clients leave detailed letters outlining their wishes for future generations, their values and philosophy of life. Several have even videotaped their messages to children and grandchildren. Many of these messages have been quite well done and much appreciated by the recipients. Call (828) 696 1811 for info on legal planning techniques.



Among the artists donating to the auction is Logan Wolfrum, a self-taught, 27-year-old sculptor from the mountains of Colorado. He became an interested donor when his future mother-in-law, Melinda Aud, spoke with him about it. “Melinda informed me about the Hospice fundraiser and told me about all the good that comes from the event. It seems like a wonderful thing to be a part of. I hope that I can help make a difference,” Wolfrum says. Also donating a piece from her collection is Llyn Strong, a jewelry maker based in Greenville, S.C. Strong offers one of her Signature Arch Rings. “I used Hospice with my mom and it was a great experience,” says Strong. While much of her work is inspired by her husband Brad, daughter Sydney, nature and painter Gustav Klimt, Strong’s latest creations come from a different muse. “My new angel collection was inspired by my mother,” Strong said. A third generous donor is local artist Dale McEntire from Saluda. A native of Western North Carolina, McEntire’s paintings and sculptures are widely exhibited throughout the south and beyond. When asked to contribute to the HoCF “Boots & Bling” event, he didn’t hesitate. “Hospice was very helpful to my family over 25 years ago when my father was terminally ill with cancer. At that time they had a very small staff and group of volunteers but did an amazing job of supporting my father, mother and our family with the love and care they share. Jean Eckert was the nurse who cared for my father and Nan Holden and Burt Marsh were volunteers who helped us greatly. It is good to see how this organization has continued to grow and improve to help so many families in our area.” - article submitted

How to find a good handyman or contractor Dear Savvy Senior, Can you offer us seniors any tips for finding a good handyman to do some work around the house? I’m 71 and have had some bad luck lately with handymen who either don’t show up or don’t finish what they start. Searching Senior Dear Searching, Hiring a local handyman can be a bit of a crapshoot. How do you find someone who will return your calls, show up on time, do the job right and finish it, all at a fair price? Here are some tips and resources that can help. Who to call While it may seem obvious, your first step in finding a good handyman or trade specialist is to determine what all you need done. If, for example, you have a small home repair or improve-

ment project that doesn’t require a lot of technical expertise, a handyman may be all you need. But if you have a job that involves electricity, plumbing, or heating or cooling systems, you’re probably better off going with a licensed tradesman. Bigger jobs like home renovations or remodeling may require a general contractor.

in touch with prescreened, customer-rated service professionals in your area for free. Or try angieslist. com (888-888-5478), a membership service that will connect you with high quality contractors and service companies with various types of expertise for a small monthly fee of $7, or $25 for a one-year membership. Angie’s list will also provide you with ratings and reviews of local professionals who’ve done work for other members in your area, plus details about the type of work they’ve done, prices, professionalism and timeliness. Another option for finding handyman services is through a local or national service company like and You’ll probably pay more going through a company than you would with

Savvy Senior

Locating services Whatever type of work you need, the best way to find it is through referrals from people you trust. If your friends of family don’t have any recommendations turn to professionals in the field like local hardware or home improvement stores, or even real estate agents. The Internet can also help. Websites like (877-800-3177) can put you

an independent handyman, but service companies typically promise professional workers who are screened, licensed, bonded and insured. To find these types of services in your community check your yellow pages or go to any Internet search engine and type in “handyman” plus your city and state. Things to know Once you’ve located a few candidates, your next step is to get written estimates that list the materials, costs and details of the project. It’s a good idea to get at least three estimates from different sources to be sure you’re getting a fair deal. You also need to find out if your candidates have an approved contractor or tradesman license. Using an unlicensed (Continued on page 47)
