Columbus fire asks for 1-cent tax increase Town hall meetings begin April 3 by Leah Justice

The Columbus Fire Department is asking for a one-cent tax increase to fund three full-time positions. Columbus Town Council ap-

proved supporting the increase at its meeting Thursday, March 22. The Polk County Board of Commissioners will make the final decision on fire department budgets. Columbus Fire Chief Bobby Arledge said the increase would help fund three full-time posi-

tions that would staff the department 24 hours a day. He said Columbus is the busiest department in the county, with an average of 1,200 calls per year. Arledge said during the day, response times aren’t bad, but (Continued on page 4)

Author, illustrator read ‘Summer of the Rabbits’ at Polk library by Samantha Hurst

Local author Linda Martin read to young children from her new book, “Summer of the Rabbits” during preschool storytime at the Polk County Library Tuesday, March 27. Illustrator Alice Feagan, also a local resident, showed kids the pictures she created as Martin read. Later Feagan explained to the children how she creates the images first by drawing tiny versions on a storyboard, then drawing expanded versions the size of each spread in the book and finally, scanning the image and completing it via software on her computer. Martin also told the children about her desire to write the book so her own grandchildren would know more about growing up on the farm with animals like rabbits running around. Children and their parents celebrated the new book with Martin and Feagan by enjoying cake, lemonade and of course, carrots.

• Columbus fire

recently improved its rating to 6. Arledge said the new rating should mean a decrease of approximately 15 percent on insurance. For a home valued at $100,000, the savings would be about $90 per year. A one-cent increase on taxes would be a $10 increase on a $100,000 home or a $20 increase on a $200,000 home, so even with a tax increase, residents inside city limits would see a savings because of the lower homeowner’s insurance, he said. Arledge said he plans to obtain a better ISO rating for Columbus Township residents in the county this summer. The fire department is planning town hall meetings for residents regarding the tax increase and the ISO rating and homeowner’s insurance changes. The meetings will be held on April 3, April 16 and May 10 at 7 p.m. at Columbus Town Hall. Arledge said he scheduled the meetings on different days of the week in hopes that all residents have the opportunity to attend one of the meetings. Town council gave unanimous approval to the tax increase, as did the Columbus Fire Department board of directors and the Columbus fire tax commission. The Polk County Board of Commissioners is scheduled to consider fire budgets in May.

after 5 p.m. response times get worrisome because volunteers must travel from their homes. During a recent budget retreat, Arledge told council he would like to hire three full-time trained individuals who are currently working as volunteers. He suggested paying them salaries of $25,000 per year. The cost for the salaries would be an additional $93,863 to the budget, including FICA, Medicare, unemployment and insurance costs. The total budget with the property tax increase from 4 cents per $100 of valuation to 5 cents per $100 of valuation is proposed at $358,638. Arledge, who is the only person who currently works full-time for the department, told council that a response to a cardiac arrest call at night once took 10 minutes. If someone had been in the department, Arledge said, the response time would have been 2 to 3 minutes. He also stressed how important response times are to fires, since a fire doubles in size every 18 seconds. Arledge also said for city residents tax increase will be 0tfn0COn- InDD - pagea50 canceled out by a lower, better ISO rating, which will mean lower homeowner’s insurance costs.

Ag center a valuable asset It’s encouraging, but not surprising, to hear a report that the Mill Spring Agricultural Center is operating in the black and continually growing. If you have not been out to the ag center for an event, to shop for produce at the PolkFresh Market or simply to roam around and relish the spirit of an historic building’s loving restoration, you have not spent your time well in Polk County. I moved from a larger metropolitan area where many a decrepit building stands. In their heydays, these buildings were majestic theaters, pinnacles of business and institutions in their own right. Unfortunately, few there have taken notice to prevent their crumbling and further degradation. Seeing the careful facelifts the Mill Spring Agricultural Center has received – even over just the past year – is inspiring. What’s even more inspiring is not the aesthetic improvements made to the building itself, but the atmosphere of entrepreneurship, creativity, and most importantly, community that once again springs forth from the building’s many offices and studios. Just imagine what this must mean to those who attended the Mill Spring school. Many of you don’t have to imagine because you were among those students and can feel the pride of seeing your schoolhouse continue to thrive - that is a lucky feeling indeed. Great things are happening at the ag center and we all should be itching to be a part of them. — Samantha Hurst, editor, Tryon Daily Bulletin defines marriage as between one man and one woman.

There are two sides to every story.

and have adopted my fair share of both. I have worked in the office, cleaned cages and runs, hauled food, socialized dogs, pilled cats, trained people and animals, transported rescues and answered thousands of questions. Foothills is by far the best shelter I have ever seen, and they are definitely moving in the right direction – which is forward! Foothills Humane Society has come a long way, thanks to the efforts of its volunteers, its staff, and its board of directors – all of them, past and present. They have worked hard to grow from a typical rural shelter where only 20 percent of the animals got out alive to an unbelievable 97 percent live release rate, which is better than most No-Kill shelters in the country and which has drawn the praise of national groups such as Maddie’s Fund and PetSmart Charities. Foothills Humane Society’s decision to hire Selena Coffey as its first executive director was a brilliant move on the part of the board. Maddie’s Fund’s national blog praised t h e o rg a n i z a t i o n f o r i t s strength and foresightedness


the community out of spite. The perpetrator does not care. His willful vitriol has been spilled. He does not believe in ramifications. Why should he? The protectors of community interest are missing. Their voices are stuck in ruts of running disputes. They refuse action yet demand respect in profane ways. Some say compellingly that we do not need them. I wonder if we will miss the nothing that they do? – Mark Byington, Tryon in hiring an ED from outside the sheltering community. She has garnered kudos from many sectors since she has been with Foothills, and has been a much-needed breath of fresh air. Her stated goal, and that of the board of directors, is to save the lives of the animals, and to ensure that there are “No More Homeless Pets” in our community. I couldn’t think of a better goal myself. I think Ms. Vare put it very well when she said that as she started volunteering, “We discovered a dedicated, caring and very knowledgeable staff and a lot of great dogs.” That has not changed. H o w e v e r, p e o p l e d o move on, for a wide variety of reasons, and new ones are welcomed. In any group, people have different ideas of how to achieve goals, but it is always important to keep your eyes on the common goal. The thing to remember here is that we are all doing this for the benefit of the animals. And not only is it beneficial for the animals, but it benefits the community at large. And I, for one, am excited to see all the positive growth and change at Foothills Humane Society. – Paula Drake Mullenax

Cover up…

Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE) will hold its next Armchair Traveler program at 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 1. Wild Birds Unlimited owners Simon Thompson and Chris Jaquette have spent four weeks hiking and birding throughout Chile. Thompson said Chile was a delightful country to explore, from the Atacama Desert in Arica in Chile’s far north through the central wine country to the penguin colonies and glaciers of Patagonia, and it was surprisingly easy as independent travelers. Thompson will share photos and experiences from this trip. The event will also include a special wine tasting from the local Parker-Binns Vineyard located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. This event is made possible by the Kirby Foundation at PCCF. – article submitted by Tracie Hanson
