• Candidate forum (continued from page 1)

questions submitted by audience members. Promoting Polk County The first question asked candidates how they will promote other areas of the county given that the economic development


commission put together a video that promotes horse farms and vineyards. Holbert said there are other things that can be brought into Polk County besides horse farms and vineyards. He mentioned Carolina Yarn Processors bringing more jobs but said there is a problem with dredging water

from the pond as an example of hurdles they will have to go through to make the new jobs happen. The county needs to make sure it has businesses come to Polk County, he said. Bartlett said water is an issue for the county attracting businesses. She said she’d like to see a center where the county helps

incubate and develop small businesses. She also said she’d like to see a stronger presence for Isothermal Community College, with the college offering training for any manufacturing businesses that want to come to Polk. “We need to help ourselves (Continued on page 4)

first,” Bartlett said. Gage said he doesn’t want to overregulate to the point where businesses don’t want to come here. Taxes and infrastructure are going to attract businesses, he said. Gage said he would sit down with the economic development commission to see what direction they are going. He said farms need other income and Polk needs to get manufacturing back by producing the infrastructure to attract those people. “It’s a very complicated thing and it all takes balance,” said Gage. Pack said the county needs building sites ready to bring businesses in. “We have a lot of storefronts but not actual buildings,” he said. “Polk County is not business friendly.” Pack mentioned the proposed unified development ordinance (UDP) saying when a business wants to come in, (county staff) is going to hand them a document that is almost 400 pages. He said a Rutherford County official told him Rutherford County wants Polk to pass the UDO so jobs will continue to come to Rutherford County. He also mentioned recent statistics in the Region C area showing that hundreds of jobs came to Rutherford, Cleveland and McDowell counties and Polk County had zero. Mierop said Polk needs to work on infrastructure to create a better economic climate for not just jobs but careers. He said the county should continue laying water lines along the major highways and to continue working on education so Polk students are able to obtain careers in the county. He also said the county should continue work on its policies to make sure it is business friendly and that the county has designated areas where business is suitable. McDermott said she is concerned about being business friendly too, but there’s a lot that has already been done. She

said there was an unfortunate situation when a manufacturing company wanted to come to Polk but said there were not enough people trained and ready to work for them. McDermott said she helped Green River Adventures expand their business by coming up with a plan and writing changes to the ordinances so they could expand quickly. UDO, MRPO positions Moderator Bultman said she was handed eight questions pertaining to the UDO and mountainside and ridgeline protection ordinance (MRPO). She consolidated the questions into asking candidates whether they support using slope or elevation to determine regulations on land usage and what exactly they feel the county has accomplished. “What we’ve accomplished so far is we seem to have everybody angry,” Holbert said. Holbert added that if the county uses elevation it isolates everyone in Saluda, which is not fair. And using slope throughout the county punishes everyone, he said. He said the county should let the building inspector use his judgment in deciding whether an engineer is needed in a particular case. Bartlett said she attended a Polk County Planning Board meeting prior to the forum. She said the document can have two purposes. There is the health and safety issue and the county’s employees are going to use the document to administer the policies, she said. “In my mind I’m looking for a clear and concise document,” Bartlett said. “It’s not fair to treat one part of the county differently than other parts.” She said she is looking for what is fair to everyone and doesn’t have an opinion one way or the other. She said she doesn’t want to be unfavorable to businesses, but the county does need some protection. Gage said he thinks the MRPO should be thrown out (Continued on page 6)

and the county needs to let the building inspection department do its job. The UDO, he said, needs to be thrown out. Gage said the county needs to go back to its original purpose with the UDO and put the ordinances together. Pack said he believes the MRPO and UDO are very punitive for people who live in Polk County. He is a supporter of property rights, he said, and thinks documents like these are geared more for gated communities and towns. “We haven’t had any slides because (building inspector) Steve Jones does his job,” Pack said. “If he’s not confident he can call for an engineer or soil scientist.” Pack said regulations need to be looked at for each site individually. Mierop said his college education included a lot of soil

classes and there is an equation that is more slope based. He said he is in favor of what the community wants and thinks there needs to be a democratic process. McDermott said several folks have said the building inspector needs to be the one to call the shots but the county attorney strongly urged the county not to do that saying it is a straight path to county liability. She said protections need to be determined by ordinance, not by an individual. McDermott also said Gage said to throw out the MRPO and she finds that interesting since he voted for a much stricter ordinance when he was on Columbus Town Council. “It kind of puzzles me why that one would be good and this one would be bad,” McDermott said. She also said the comprehensive plan started in 2008, when Pack voted to pay almost $91,000 for the plan, with some

of that paying for the UDO. She said voters need to look at who has been in the process and that it was bipartisan until the election began. Gage later rebutted McDermott’s statements, saying when he served on Columbus Town Council he voted the way he did because that was what the people wanted.

County-wide water system Candidates were also asked if they favor or oppose a countywide water system with most saying eventually it would be beneficial for the county. Gage said he is not going to say whether he’s in favor of a county-wide water system or not. He said it’s complicated because he doesn’t want to force the towns. He said if the towns want to participate he’s in favor of such a system. “It’s got to be everybody wanting to get in,” Gage said. “Eventually we will have to. Eventually I can see it hap-

pening.” McDermott said a previous board adopted a water distribution plan but it doesn’t account for the water system paying for itself. She said she’s never heard of a water system being put in place without a water feasibility study or a rate study, which still needs to be done.

Candidates’ top priorities The last question asked each candidate what their top three issues are and how they would deal with them. Holbert said, “Jobs, jobs, jobs.” He said kids are coming out of the schools and the county has nowhere for them to work. Bartlett said jobs are an issue and that jobs and education go hand and hand. She said Isothermal Community College does a great job but is not large enough to handle training for jobs and needs to be expanded. Another issue she said is county (Continued on page 7)

debt and paying for future expenditures like Lake Adger Dam repairs. Bartlett also said the county needs long-range planning to eliminate the county’s debt. Gage said jobs are a top issue, such as manufacturing jobs where people have health insurance. He said the county needs to support the school system and the sheriff’s office. He also said the county needs to get deputies back into the school system and support emergency services. Pack said his top priority is jobs and mentioned the high percentage of citizens who have to go outside Polk County to work. Another issue he said is taxes and the county being conservative, as well as looking at expenditures, such as setting aside money for repairs to the Lake Adger dam. He said the county needs to support its public safety and work with the fire departments, EMS and rescue. Mierop said education leads to training for specialized careers and he would like to see residents his age finding work here. He also said infrastructure is an issue and where that infrastructure is will help Polk County with getting careers for people of his generation. McDermott said she agrees that economic development is a really big issue. She said

Polk made a great leap forward this year, but probably needs to put more resources toward economic development. She said the county needs to expand offerings at Isothermal Community College. Her third priority is fiscal responsibility. McDermott said the county needs long-range planning for both the known and unknown. “You need capital re serves,” McDermott said. “I think we’ve been doing a good job with it the past four years.” The forum also included speeches from Polk County Clerk of Court candidates Pam Hyder (D) and Marche Pittman (R); Phil Feagan (D), who is running for N.C. Senate District 47; Chris Whitmire (R), who is running for N.C. House of Representatives District 113, and Emily Cowan, who is running for district court judge. Judges run unaffiliated. Early voting begins this Thursday, Oct. 18 at three locations. Voters can go to the board of elections office in Columbus Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. or the Mill Spring Fire Department or Green Creek Community Life Center Monday through Friday from noon to 7 p.m. All three locations will be open on the last day to early vote on Sat., Nov. 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 6, when all polling places throughout the county will be open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Where We Work An in-depth look at an area business

person featured: Selena Coffey business: Foothills Humane Society phone number: 828-863-4444 Address: 989 Little Mountain Road, Columbus operating hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday: 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Nature of business: The Foothills Humane Society mission: Preventing cruelty to animals; reuniting lost animals with their owners, adopting animals to qualified homes or placing them with reputable rescue organizations; and encouraging responsible animal ownerrship and population control. Principal manager: Selena Coffey, executive director year founded: Organized 1957, incorporated 1989 Number of employees: Six full-time, seven part-time how’s business? We always have plenty of adoptable pets. The sluggish economy has impacted Foothills Humane Society; many families have surrended their pets to us because they can no longer afford to care for them.

One thing I wish everyone knew about this business: Foothills Humane Society is unlike many other small, rural shelters in that we maintain a very high live-release rate of 98-99 percent, meaning that the majority of our animals are placed in permanent homes, foster homes or with rescues. To achieve that end, we offer extensive medical testing and treatment, vaccinations for animals in our care. Additionally, we provide training and behavioral assessments of our animals and staff takes great care in matching each animal with its best potential home. Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: Foothills Humane Society offers a host of volunteer opportunities, from washing dishes and laundry, grooming our animals, walking our dogs,

going “on the road” to adoption events, socializing our cats, office assistance and kennel care assistance just to name a few.

advice to young entrepreneurs: Get involved by taking initiative. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. my first job: Note: I’ve been working since I was 14, but my first “adult” job was as a social worker in a long-term care facility after getting my bachelor of science degree in May 1993. I then began working on my master of public affairs (MPA) degree, which I completed in August 1995. After completing my MPS, I worked in senior management for local government. Your role model (in business or in life generally): My parents are my role models. Both instilled in me a compassion for all beings and a work ethic that just won’t stop. The key to a successful business: My idea of the key to a successful business is fairly and consistently leading or “modeling the way” for employees and customers.

Local author publishes new edition of ‘Winning Wines’ It’s fall – and it’s time for a new edition of Ford Smith’s “Winning Wines: Medal Winners for $15 or Less.” Smith has been compiling the results of the most prestigious annual wine competitions into easy-to-use listings for eight years. At first, it was for his and his wife’s pleasure. Then, they started sharing the lists as gifts to family members and friends. A few years ago, one of those friends said, “Hey, you need to publish this information so more people can enjoy good wine!” With the Oct. 26 “Wine & Sign” at La Bouteille in Tryon, Smith launches his 2013 version of “Winning Wines.” This latest edition has been expanded to include bottles costing up to $15. Smith said, “With Market the rise in oil prices and, Place subsequently, transportation expenses, wines are costing more.” The book release party will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26 at La Bouteille. The wine and beer boutique is located at 10 North Trade Street in Tryon. Mara and Ford Smith will pour four wines from the lists of “Winning Wines.” La Bouteille owner Shelly Block will have additional bottles for sale. It’s a free event with cheese and crackers to clear your palate between tastings. – article submitted by Ford Smith

Polk volleyball serves up win against Thomas Jefferson Wolverines undefeated in conference so far by Elizabeth Trautman

A crowd came out to watch Polk County’s Lady Wolverines battle on the volleyball court against Thomas Jefferson Academy, which ended with a 3-0 win for Polk. Now with 12 conference wins, the Lady Wolverines’ steady march to the playoffs has put them in a favorable position. Only one conference match remains, and Polk’s win over Thomas Jefferson has kept them undefeated in conference and pushed them further up in the ranks. The first game started with back and forth plays, and when the score tied 6-6, it appeared to be an evenly matched game. However, after the Lady Wolverines were warmed up and in their groove, they came back to score 19 points, ending the game with a victory of 25-10. The whole team got involved in the game; ace after ace, Polk County controlled the ball. Sarah Phipps, no. 12, started the domination, and serves by senior Katie Ruff (no. 3) resulted in several points. Rebecca Mitchell, no. 2, was on game as she slid one over the net. The surprise move was untouched by Thomas Jefferson’s Gryphons. Then Makenzie White, no. 5 for Polk County, laid into Thomas Jefferson with strong, solid serves, including five aces served for the match. Savannah Deaver, no. 7, killed two shots back to back, and before anyone

knew it, Polk’s Shayln Brown, no. 9, brought in game point with an ace served. In game no. 2, Polk County left even less room for Thomas Jefferson to get hold of the ball. Ruff used her strong, sharp aim, going in for the kill and landing the ball right where she wanted. Maggie Phipps, no. 4, had an opportunity to show off her strength with several productive serves. Phipps spiked one

over, bringing the score to 11-2. Deaver was quick on her feet and tactical with her responses. Kara Overholt, no. 1, played a vital role in the Wolverines’ strategy, locking in 26 assists for the match. Both Makenzie White and Shalyn Brown put their powerful serving to work, wrapping up the game with a 25-6 win. By the third game, the enthusiasm of the Polk County

Lady Wolverines had the crowd captivated. Deaver again found the spots where the ball needed to be, delivered the ball accordingly, with Thomas Jefferson rarely able to return. Deaver was responsible for 13 of the team’s 33 kills. Savannah Ross, JV’s no. 11, came in when Polk County had 20 points on the board to earn some playtime. The Wolverines ended up with a 25-9 win in the final game.

Using social media to recruit, engage volunteers at nonprofit organizations As the nonprofit Leadership column continues discussing marketing for nonprofits, the next several articles will focus on specific social media tools. As we discussed in previous articles there are three main reasons for starting a social media campaign. They are raising money, recruiting and engaging volunteers and spreading your message. In this article we are going to start with recruiting and engaging volunteers. In recruiting volunteers, the key to any social media tool is the ability to have volunteers ask others to serve and volunteer for the organization. To start with, it is a great first step for nonprofit organizations to register with several online volunteer matching services. It’s free to register with most

of these services. Next you will want to encourage your existing volunteers to log in and comment on why they have chosen your nonprofit as one for which they want to volunteer. In retaining and engaging volunteers you want to make sure you have a site dedicated to providing them with the tools, knowledge and forms to do their jobs effectively. A great way to do this is to have a secure page or portal on your existing website where volunteers and committee members can go to view updates, download forms or to get fellow volunteer contact information.
