Polk’s tax rate ties for 23rd lowest in state by Leah Justice

Polk County ranks in the bottom quarter of tax rates throughout North Carolina for fiscal year 2012-2013. Polk’s tax rate of 52 cents per $100 of valuation is almost half of Scotland County’s $1.03 tax rate, which is the highest in the state. The N.C. Association of County Commissioners recently

released the rankings following statewide counties adopting new budgets, which began July 1. Polk County’s tax rate is ranked 78 out of 100 counties from high to low tax rates, or the 27th lowest tax rate in the state. Polk ties with Madison (26th), Cherokee (25th), Burke (24th) and Alamance (23rd) Counties, which also have tax rates of 52 cents.

“I am very pleased to be in the bottom fourth in the state on county tax rate,” said Polk County Manager Ryan Whitson. “Our current tax rate is adequate to meet our needs and I don’t see a tax increase needed in the near future.” The lowest tax rate in the state is Macon County, with a (Continued on page 4)

Hendersonville man pleads guilty in Gillette Woods larcenies by Leah Justice

A Hendersonville man was convicted in Polk County for breaking and entering and larceny cases in the Gillette Woods area of Tryon and Polk County that occurred in 2011. John Jacob Kessler, who was 42 at the time of his March 2011 arrest pled guilty in Polk County District Court held Wednesday, July 18 to two counts of felony breaking and or entering, one count of felony larceny and one count of felony larceny after break/enter. Judge Mack Brittain sentenced Kessler to two terms of eight to 10 months at the N.C. Department of Corrections with 142 days of pretrial time served credit, recommending the DART program if Kessler qualifies. Kessler was arrested and charged in March 2011 for

the breaking and entering of several properties in the Lake Lanier and Gillette Woods area with one property located in Tryon and two properties located in Polk County. Area residents were credited by law enforcement in helping in the arrests in the crimes that occurred over a three-week period in 2011. Kessler faced charges in both Greenville County, S.C. for the Lake Lanier break-ins and in Polk County for the Gillette Woods break-ins. Officers at the time said several victims did not realize their homes had been broken into due to the crimes occurring during the day when no one was home and the homes left seemingly untouched. Neighbors began talking and came up with a description of a suspicious vehicle

that had been seen in the area with one victim knowing Kessler and once officers ran his name through pawn shops some of the stolen items were discovered. Also arrested in the case was Karen Phillips Byrd, of Chesnee, S.C., who was 38 years old at the time of her 2011 arrest. Byrd pled guilty in March 2011 in Polk County District Court to two counts of possession of stolen goods and was sentenced to 120 days in jail. Byrd’s original charges included felony larceny, breaking and or entering and one count of possession of stolen goods. Byrd was also recently arrested by the Columbus Police Department on charges of simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug para-

Polk gives annual mental health funding to Polk Wellness Board agrees to look for funding for PVS by Leah Justice

Polk County Commissioners were recently faced with two bids for its annual maintenance of efforts funds for mental health with commissioners choosing to again fund the Polk Community Health and Wellness Center. Polk Vocational Services (PVS) also applied for funding this year, saying their funding has been cut and funding from Polk could help offset some of those cuts. Commissioners agreed to grant the Polk Wellness Center with the full amount of $74,981 and discussed how to work with PVS to help get them funding from another source. PVS had requested $50,000 worth of the funding. Commissioner Cindy Walker said it’s hard when the county has two great facilities. She motioned that the funding go to the Polk Wellness Center, saying they are new and she feels like it’s important for the county to help them as much as it can. “I’m appreciative that PVS has been here for a long time,” Walker said. “I have to pick what I feel like is the most critical need.” Commissioner Ted Owens asked if the county could give the majority to Polk Wellness and some to PVS. “I know both organizations are very important,” Owens said.

He said PVS is providing a real service for citizens of Polk County that need it as well as Polk Wellness Center. “If we can’t help PVS with this maybe we should think about helping from an economic development standpoint because they do provide jobs,” Owens said. Commissioner Tom Pack voted against giving all the funding to Polk Wellness Center saying he thinks the funding should be split between the two organizations. Commissioners agreed for Polk County Economic Development Director Libbie Johnson to work with PVS to see how the county can help with funding. One suggestion was to give PVS $5,000 the county economic tourism development commission previously offered to give the county for a water line extension. PVS has been in Polk County for 44 years and provides jobs to county residents who have developmental disabilities. The Polk Wellness Center has been in operation since 2009 and offers a sliding scale pay system with therapists to help people who suffer with mental health and substance abuse. The nonprofit wellness center has grown to 584 clients with 12 employees. The Wellness Center has recently moved its mental health services to the Dunn’s Commons Plaza in Columbus. The primary medical care services are still located at Polk Wellness’ original location at 801 W. Mills Street, Columbus.

Gospel singing at Columbus Baptist Mike Upright of Hendersonville will sing at Columbus Baptist Church on Saturday, July 28 at 6 p.m. A love offering will be received to help him with his ministry.

We can show you the steps to improving your quality of life. Ruth Fulham of Lake Lure has asthma, and her difficulty breathing was increasing her difficulty with daily activities. Her pulmonologist recommended she go to pulmonary rehabilitation. She trusted her community hospital to be there to meet the need, just as it had when her husband needed a knee replacement and when she needed gall bladder surgery. She wasn’t disappointed this time either. “The staff in the cardiopulmonary clinic at Rutherford Regional are very caring and knowledgeable,” Ruth says. “They really enjoy their jobs.” The staff guided her through exercises in the lab that would improve her lung capacity as well as teaching her things she could continue to do at home. “I feel like I’ve really benefitted,” Ruth says. “It is an amazing program.” Rutherford Regional’s Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program provides safe and effective ways for heart and lung patients to return to full, active lives.

Latest Morris letter, ransom note

October 19-28, 2012

“Tippy just hurried back from town after sneaking into TFAC and said there are people everywhere and the place is filled with images of me. While Tippy was away, I overheard my kidnappers talking about me and they kept repeating the words ransom and gala. I whispered what I heard to Tippy and she became very excited, saying that all of my friends are throwing this “big party” and hope it will give the kidnappers what they want...my ransom. Since the night I was taken away, I have never felt alone.

I have always known in my heart how much I love my home and all of my friends. After talking with Tippy, I now realize how much my friends love me and miss me as much as I miss them. They are having a party for me. I know they will do whatever it takes to bring me back home so I can continue greeting all of my friends from my regular post, representing Tryon, “The Friendliest Town in the South.” I cannot wait for Tippy to return from the “Big Party” and tell me all about it! – Your loyal friend, Morris

Phytonutrients help us the way nature intended Today, I’d like to share information on a substance found in most fruits and vegetables, that not only helps protect plants as they grow, but us too…phytonutrients. Plants, over time developed these compounds to protect themselves from harm. You see, unlike humans, plants are at a real disadvantage, be-

cause they’re stuck in one place. lutants in soil and water. Plants If a plant gets sick with mold produce these phytonutrients as or fungus, the plants next to it part of their immune systems. can’t just get up The word Diet & Exercise and move a safe “phyto” comes distance away. by David Crocker from the Greek They have to word, meaning stay right where they are and plant. Since phytonutrients aren’t battle disease, injury, drought, considered “traditional” nutrients insects, excessive heat, and pol- like fat, protein, vitamins, and minerals, they’re sometimes referred to as “phytochemicals.” Also, their use for health benefits isn’t just recent, in fact it’s believed Hippocrates may have prescribed willow tree leaves to abate fever. Salicin, extracted from willow tree bark would later be synthetically produced, and known as over-the-counter aspirin. Scientists estimate as many as 10,000 different phytochemicals that may affect cancer, cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, age-related macular degeneration, and protect our bodies from oxidative damage. There are several classes of phytonutrients, but the best known are “carotenoids.” Carotenoids are pigments that give fruits and vegetables their red, yellow, orange or purple colors. By the way, phytonutrients are also responsible for fruit and vegetable odors. This is known as the plant’s “organoleptic” quality. Some common carotenoids and their sources include alphacarotene (carrots), beta-carotene (leafy greens and yellow vegetables like butternut squash, kale, collards, turnip greens, carrots and sweet potatoes), beta-cryptoxanthin (citrus fruits, peaches and apricots),lutein (leafy greens like kale, spinach, and turnip greens), zeaxanthin, (leafy greens, eggs, citrus). Another important phytochemical found in fruits and vegetables are sterols. Sterols are a subgroup of steroids. Sterols in plants are called phytosterols, sterols in animals are called zoosterols. Phytosterols have been shown to block cholesterol absorption sites in the human intestine, thus reducing blood

levels of cholesterol. Pytosterols also act as precursors to human sterols. These act to modulate the human endocrine system, there by making it possible for the body to produce Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA for short). DHEA is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands and serves a variety of functions. This hormone is often referred to as the “mother” hormone, because of its ability to convert itself into other hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and corticosterone. That makes DHEA a precursor to all other human hormones. Research shows that adequate DHEA in the body can slow the aging process, and help prevent and reverse conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, memory loss, obesity and osteoporosis. Human DHEA levels peak between ages 20 to 25, then decline with age. I don’t recommend DHEA supplementation, unless advised by your doctor, because too much of this hormone has been shown to increase blood clotting, an over abundance of estrogen in men and increase of hormone related cancers like prostate, breast, and ovarian. We do need this hormone and all the phytochemicals discussed today for good health, but get them the way nature intended. By eating your fruits and vegetables. Diet or exercise question?

Only in our lives for a moment but remember forever Our routine Sunday night was interrupted somewhere in the eight o’clock hour by the sudden sound of knocking on the storm door and the headlights from a still running truck parked in front of the house. “Is this your kitten?” asked a neighbor, holding up a scruff of yowling dark grey fur in the palm of his hand. Standing in a tank top and a pair of Paul’s boxers (you know how I hate pants) and using one foot to keep our other four cats and two terriers from scooting out the door, I said, “Nope. That ain’t ours.” “Oh. It was up at the end of your driveway by the road, next to your mailbox, and Nathan said to bring it over to you ‘cause it was probably yours.” Gee, thanks, Nathan. Well, what are you going to do? The kitten was tiny and as we later learned, only six weeks old,

She had been in our lives for 36 hours. “Maybe you were only meant to help her transition to the other side.” a friend suggested, helpfully. Those were words of enormous comfort and, I believe, truth. We have a plethora of coyotes around here and I often see what appears to be a great horned owl roosting in a poplar in the front field in the evenings. This tiny kitten could easily have experienced a terrifying and painful death. Instead, because one fellow cared enough to stop his truck and scoop her up out of the road and bang on doors, trying to find it a home, and because we are suckers for all things wearing fur pajamas, this kitten spent the last several hours of her brief life warm and safe, grateful and purring, right up until she lapsed into her final sleep.

Cann named South Carolina Athletic Director of the year by Joey Millwood

Over the last 10 years, Landrum athletics has seen much success. That success was rewarded Sunday, July 22 as Landrum’s Athletic Director John Cann was awarded the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association State Athletic Director of the Year award. Cann has served at the heart of the Cardinals’ past decade of success, but he is quick to point out that it wasn’t all about one person. “I feel like I’m sharing this award with the whole staff,” he

Landrum moves up into the 2A classification for the upcoming season.

Yes, red wagons bring back memories, and are a reminder of what matters most. Red wagons, basketball thumping, dogs, roosters crowing, mockingbirds trilling, kids playing outside: all a part of the web of life. We need those things that connect us, the years, the turning of time: living here in town, I get a glimpse of many story lines along the sidewalks. There are young, middle-age, old folks; dogs, cats sunning on porches, ancient pick-ups, tractors, golf carts along low-slung cars that cost as much as a modest house. It all comes together as part of the thread that knits community together. Last week, my doorbell rang: this time, two grinning (and adorable) eight-year-old boys bearing a huge jar of Milkbone® dog treats with a “Welcome to Saluda, River!” sign taped around it. Now, River the rescue

pup has made himself quite at home around here, and has been trying to live up to being the resident guard Shar-Pei of the house. However, wise boy that he is, once he spotted the treats, no growls or barks were to be heard. Tail wagging, he made fast friends with his two visitors (and the treat jar). What I love most about Saluda: the fact that little boys come to my door with a jar of treats to make the new ‘baby’ welcome. The fact that others leave off gift bags of dog presents for him, ask about him. That red wagons roll past on the sidewalk. It’s the way our town is: that folks care about each other, furry or not: and another reminder that there is good in this world – right there in front of me: standing on a sunlit porch, two young boys carrying a jar of Milkbones® with joy and innocence in their eyes.

When I confronted her, she said, “L.G. was a good and easy keeper, her boarding is on me.” As I hugged her I said,” I guess I’ll have to cook you another Italian dinner.” “That’s a great deal,” she replied, the good lady’s face

beaming with joy. Little Girl is now comfortable and happy in her new home with Don Lovak and his team. I’d like to dedicate this week’s tale to all those who step up to help me and my kids with three in particular, a canine and his two humans. To Dana and Emmy and in memory of Champ, the therapy dog, who always greeted Uncle Lennie with warmth. The only thing Champ loved better than food was people, or as Champ would say, “Well, maybe.” If you get a chance, look him up on the internet and you’ll learn something that I’ve always known, “He was simply the best.” Thanks for listening.

Tryon Congregational Church Feed-A-Family summer program Each Wednesday for 10 weeks this summer members of the Tryon Congregational Church have criss-crossed Polk County delivering the ingredients for a family meal to needy families in our community. This effort, spearheaded by the outreach committee of the church, grew out of discussions about Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry’s (TBOM) Feed-A-Kid program that operates during the school year. The question about what happens to these hungry children during school vacations was asked. No satisfactory answer could be given. Last summer, TBOM offered food for the children that had to be picked up by the parents at TBOM. That program experienced limited success largely due to the inability of the parents to pick up the food. So, Tryon UCC Board of Outreach members discussed the feasibility of delivering meals to the homes of the hungry children. Rather than just trying to provide food for school-aged children in the homes, the com-

mittee felt that the entire family should be fed. So, menus were designed, recipes were provided both in English and Spanish, ingredients were purchased with the help of TBOM, and, on June 13, the first delivery took place. Each family received the ingredients for a family meal as well as Feed-A-Kid bags for each child in the family. About 60 families participated in the program with 47 of them receiving delivery of meals and the others choosing to pick up their food at TBOM. Five delivery routes were designed, and volunteer drivers and helpers spent Wednesday afternoons taking the food around. Routes encompassed most of Polk County from Saluda to Mill Spring, Green Creek to the Landrum line. In all, 28 church members volunteered to drive and deliver. In order to fund this effort, a special collection was received on Sunday, May 13. The generosity of the entire congregation (Continued on page 37)

How to search for forgotten money loved ones left behind Dear Savvy Senior, I’ve heard that there are resources available that can help people look for lost or forgotten money left behind by their diseased relatives. When my mother and father passed away their financial affairs were in such a mess, I’m wondering if there was anything I overlooked. What can you tell me? Searching Son Dear Searching, Lost or forgotten money is actually quite common in the U.S. In fact, according National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators, nearly $33 billion in unclaimed assets is sitting in state treasuries and other agencies just waiting to be found. These unclaimed assets are from some 117 million accounts that are inactive or whose owners or their heirs cannot be located. Unclaimed assets can include things like lost or forgotten investments or bank accounts, Social Security payments, utility deposits, tax refunds, life insurance proceeds, stocks, un-cashed dividends and more. This typically happens because of a change of address (the owner moved), a name change (the owner got married or divorced), or the owner dies and the estate was unaware of the money or the heirs could not be located. By law, companies and financial institutions that can’t find the owner or their next of kin within two to five years must turn the property over to the state where it’s held indefinitely. Where to search It’s very possible that your deceased parents, or you, have some unclaimed assets out there and you don’t even know it. To start your quest, go to missingmoney.com or unclaimed.org, both of which contain records

from most state unclaimed property programs. Check every state in which you or your parents have lived, worked or conducted business. Also search using maiden names and any previous names, as well as middle names and middle initials. Every state can tell you immediately if your parents or you have some unclaimed property, as well as how to go about collecting it. If you don’t have a computer, you can call the state treasurer’s office for assistance. Look here too Beyond state treasuries, here are some other agencies you should check for lost loot, along with a few resources that can help you search. IRS: Each year thousands of refund checks totaling millions of dollars are returned to the IRS by the post office. To look for lost tax refund checks go to IRS.gov and click on “Individuals,” then on “Where’s My Refund,” or call 800-829-1954. U.S. Treasury: To find out if there are any savings bonds your parents didn’t claim dating back to 1974, go to treasurydirect.gov and click on “Check Treasury Hunt to see if you own matured savings bonds.” For older bonds or those still drawing interest, use form 1048 which you can download at www.treasurydirect.gov/forms/sav1048.pdf. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.: If you or your parents worked for a company that went out of business or ended its defined benefit pension plan, you may be entitled to some of their benefits. Check at pbgc.gov and click on “Missing Participants Search.” The National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits: To search for lost 401(k) plans, try unclaimedretirementbenefits.com where plan spon-

Greenville Foothills Pony Club holds drag fox hunt in Landrum The Greenville Foothills Pony Club (GFPC) members recently were welcomed to the Landrum home of Mrs. Pat Hale, a former master of Green Creek Hounds Hunt Club, to participate in a drag fox hunt. The members warmed up by tackling a mounted obstacle course directed by Philip and Emmie Osborne of the hunt club. The Pony Clubbers said they were impressed with the red clad hunt masters and the 20+ energetic hunting hounds on the ground. With the hot weather, the hunt was short, but all agreed the experience was one they would not soon forget. The Green Creek Hounds Hunt Club, the Osbornes, and the hounds all contributed to provide an introduction to fox hunting for the GFPC. The day ended with a pool party and cookout hosted by Hale. GFPC serves the equestrian youth in the six-county area of (Continued on page 39)
