Standing commission crowd debates legal trapping by Leah Justice

The idea of being able to legally trap furbearers in Polk County has upset many who see the practice as inhumane while many others say it’s the logical solution for nuisance animals. The Polk County Board of

Commissioners heard from both sides during a meeting on Monday, Feb. 4 with a standing room only crowd where spectators had to stand along three walls of the room. Commissioners approved sending a resolution to state

legislators on Jan. 7 asking that Polk be included in the counties legally allowed to trap furbearers. Since the decision, a petition against trapping has circled the county with most of the residents (Continued on page 4)

County officials meet with Congressman Patrick McHenry Representatives of Polk County government had the honor of meeting with Congressman Patrick McHenry on Wednesday, Jan. 30. Congressman McHenry is serving his fifth term in the United States Congress representing the citizens of North Carolina’s 10th District. This district is comprised of seven counties in western North Carolina, including Polk, which was included in the 10th District after the state’s redistricting plan last year. Polk was previously in District 11 under then Congressman Heath Shuler. When he sat down with county and town officials he wanted to discuss the effect the new health care law and immigration policy will have on local jurisdictions and the

attending Monday’s meeting being against the board’s action. Polk County’s N.C. Wildlife Resource Officer Toby Jenkins began with an overview of the law, saying it was created in 1975 when the coyote and beaver populations were pretty much nonexistent. Jenkins said a lot of people think of traps as the large ones with jaws and they see graphic pictures on the Internet of animals harmed. “That’s not the case today,” Jenkins said. “In western North Carolina and other parts of the state the otter would be nonexistent if it weren’t for those traps.” Jenkins also said what people don’t realize is that the current law prohibits steel traps off your property, so organizations like Po’ Kitties aren’t legal under the law. Jenkins also discussed the restrictions on traps, including that someone has to obtain a trapping license, which is $25. A trapper has to have written permission in order to trap on someone else’s property and leg traps for coyotes are made so the

animal can’t jerk and injure their leg, Jenkins said. “A lot of people think there’s going to be traps everywhere,” said Jenkins. “That’s not the case.” He said there are currently two trappers in Polk County, saying most people don’t know how to trap and it’s become a lost art. He said he hasn’t had any problems with pets getting caught in traps but in 20092010 there was $2.6 million worth of damage from beavers in the state. “By passing that law you’re going to assist farmers that have problems with livestock,” Jenkins said. He said he’s seen sheep, horses and all kinds of pets attacked by coyotes in Polk County. Trappers are also required to place their name and address on the traps and check them every 24 hours with Jenkins saying he spends lots of hours watching traps and if they don’t check them within 24 hours he gives them a ticket. Kaye Cannon was the first speaker and said trapping is inhumane. (Continued on page 5)

• Trapping (continued from page 4)

“Not to mention the suffering the animal goes through in the time they are waiting for the trapper to come and kill them,” Cannon said. She said she knows officers try but there’s just not enough of them to ensure traps are checked every 24 hours. She also said trapping is indiscriminate, allowing untargeted animals to get trapped. “No living thing deserves to be tortured to death,” Cannon said. “Killing and trapping is not going to stop rabies.” She said there are different ways to accomplish the same end and encouraged people not to give up. Brenda Brock said making it legal opens the county up for illegal trapping. She questioned how they determine the 24 hours asking if there is a timer on the traps. “It’s not an issue of killing, it’s a humane issue,” Brock said. “We have to consider what we’re doing to animals. It reflects how we interact to other people. Anyone who is willing to trap an animal and keep them in a trap is inhumane.” She said a dog will chew their leg off just as other animals will to get out of a trap. She said the state may have more humane traps but all anyone has to do is walk through a flea market to know others exist. She also said she thinks part of what’s driving this is money. “If you’ve got a heart in there at all you would seriously reconsider,” Brock said. “There are too many options out there that we don’t need to be maiming and killing.” Jeanette Larson said in 1975 a law was passed making trapping illegal and over 35 years later the county wants to reintroduce it? “How progressive is that?” she asked. Larson also said from the information she has received there has been three confirmed rabies cases in Polk County over the

last year so she doesn’t think the county should inject rabies as a reason to allow trapping. “Let us remember they are all God’s living creatures,” Larson said. Emmy Summers who started the petition against trapping said as of Sunday night it had received 13,302 signatures. “Let’s be clear, they weren’t all from Polk County,” she said. There were probably about 232 signatures from Polk residents, Summers said. (Continued on page 6)

Retired wildlife officer John Blanton said the county’s decision to ask for the law to be changed was the right decision. He said a lot of people don’t understand that House Bill 744 allows people to trap now on their own property or leased property. “Trapping is going on right now,” Blanton said. “These horror stories aren’t happening.” He said the wildlife biologists have gone to school and studied wildlife management and by allowing Polk County to return to the state trapping law he thinks they should be the ones making the decisions that are better for the whole state.

of the Polk County Department of Social Services (DSS) and June Beddingfield of Polk Fit, Fresh and Friendly (PF3). The 2-1-1 system is an easy-toremember telephone number that connects people with information about the health and human services available in their area. It is a joint venture being put forward by Polk Fit, Fresh and Friendly in collaboration with Polk County DSS and is a result of a “Gaps in Health Care Services” study completed in 2003 and additional needs assessments conducted in 2008 and 2011. Each study indicated that all too often, it is difficult for Polk County citizens to find out about the services that are available for them. Currently, someone needing information about a service might call DSS, the sheriff’s office or even 9-1-1. Each of these sources might have some, but not all, of the information available. In many cases the information they have might also not be updated since resources frequently change. The 2-1-1 system provides multi-lingual information and referral services 24 hours a day, seven days a week by specialists who are trained not only to respond to specific questions but also to explore other options available. This service is already available in parts of western North Carolina, and Polk County is eligible to enroll.

Legal trapping of furbearers in the hands of state legislators

Gun control a fool’s errand

Though a crowd of Polk County residents flooded the Womack building in Columbus Monday night to voice their opinions both for and against legal trapping in our area, the decision now is in the hands of state legislators. Co-sponsors Chris Whitmire, Mike Hager, Tim Moore and Kelly E. Hastings filed House Bill 33 on Thursday, Jan. 31. The bill states that it is an act to repeal the law prohibiting the setting of steel traps on rented or leased land in Cleveland, Polk and Rutherford counties. As of Feb. 4 the bill had passed its first reading. With more then 230 Polk County individuals signing a petition against the move, there is obviously some push back on commissioner’s decision in early January to request the action. There isn’t however a consensus that a majority of Polk County residents are either for or against the change. We’ve heard compelling arguments from both sides and have found ourselves somewhat better educated on the subject. Destruction of property and the killing of livestock is on the brains of some landowners who feel beavers damage timber and coyotes kill animals such as poultry. Others are concerned for the treatment of these animals they feel will be tortured by the devices used in trapping. Regardless of where you stand on the issue you have an opportunity now to have a voice in whether or not trapping is once again allowed in our county. You can reach state legislators about the issue in the following ways:

Few reform attempts in America appear to have as little chance for meaningful change as gun control and immigration. Both seem fated to fail, and, except for political posturing, perhaps even pointless. In this sense, they are fool’s errands. It little matters that mass murders like the ones at Sandy Hook in Connecticut, at Columbine and Aurora in Colorado and Virginia Tech now almost routinely occur or that hundreds have been killed by Letter gun violence since to the Christmas. Editor When President Obama solemnly intoned that the day of the Sandy Hook massacre was the worst of his Presidency or declared, “It is time to do the right thing,” many agreed yet realized that nothing of significance would be done. But why? First, don’t blame the NRA, their lobby or gun owners in general. In truth, they defiantly and righteously defend their position as if it were Bunker Hill and “the Feds” instead of the British were coming for their weapons. Even as you read this, know that 39 states have no plans for new weapons restrictions while only 11 might consider any. In fact, more states will focus on better school safety or on mental health programs, all “warm fuzzy” issues designed to distract and detour from more fundamental changes. Although the divide among states neatly falls into blue and red colors, Democrats and Republicans, that, too, means practically nothing. Still, lis-

ten to the arguments against any attempts to regulate guns and you’ll understand why it, along with immigration, won’t undergo any significant change. Despite all the moral reasoning and pleas to “do something” now, any reform movement in American history must have some sort of legal basis in order to succeed. That can come from the Supreme Court, a Constitutional amendment, a Presidential decree, or Congressional legislation, but it must accompany any reform attempt. As long as fringe groups like the NRA and its rabid supporters have the shield of the Second Amendment, mass murders, gun violence and senseless killings will continue even as a few necessary but nugatory laws make their way into state and federal law. Background checks? Limiting magazines to a zillion rounds or so? Despite some token opposition, such laws remain no problem for the NRA just so long as that “birthright” in the Second Amendment holds up. That’s their greatest fear. The NRA and its supporters dread a case on the Second Amendment and an individual’s right to bear arms. That’s why they preemptively remind us of their “right” and of the Court’s backing even though both have never been thoroughly legally examined, only asserted. Warren Burger, former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and certainly no liberal, even went so far as to posit that the interpretation of the Second Amendment to support an individual’s right to bear any kind of weapon short of an atomic bomb (Continued on page 9)

Salute to senior service program accepting nominations The search is on for North Carolina’s outstanding senior volunteer. The Salute to Senior Service program honors the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes. Nominations for outstanding senior volunteers will be accepted between Feb. 1 and March 31. State winners then will be selected by popular vote at Online voting will take place from April 15 to April 30. From those state winners, a panel of senior care experts will

pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree. Home Instead Inc. will donate $500 to each of the state winners’ favorite nonprofit organizations and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame. In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner’s nonprofit charity of choice. “We all know seniors who do so much for our community,” said Steven Coleman, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Buncombe, Henderson, Transylvania, Polk and Haywood

Counties. “These silent heroes give selflessly, expecting nothing in return. And yet, their contributions often make a difference not only to the organizations they serve, but in changing how the public views growing older.” Senior care professionals and those who work at hospitals, senior care facilities and other places where seniors volunteer are encouraged to nominate older adults. So, too, are family caregivers and the adult children of aging parents. Older adults also may self-nominate.

To complete and submit a nomination form online for a senior age 65 or older who volunteers at least 15 hours a month, and to view the contest’s official rules, visit Completed nomination forms also can be mailed to Salute to Senior Service, P.O. Box 285, Bellevue, N.E. 68005. For more information about Salute to Senior Service or the Home Instead Senior Care network’s services, call 828-274-4406. – article submitted by Sally Stalnaker

Rowe to speak on “the deepest words” The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet on Sunday, Feb. 10 at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176N at 10:30 a.m. The speaker will be Reverend Jean Rowe who will speak on the topic “The Deepest Words I Never Heard.” “As I was finishing a sabbatical fellowship semester at Harvard Divinity School 23 years ago, I began a dialog with God/Buddha/ The Christ/my deepest self. Over the next four months I received a series of seven words to live by. At the time I felt they were conversations with God. Yet when I “asked” during these conversations what or who was speaking, the answers varied. Sometimes it was God, but sometimes it was Christ/Buddha.

I put the either/or symbol in because I once asked if they were one and the same spirit. The answer I got was “yes,” that The Buddha and The Christ are one and the same spiritual presence,” Rowe said. Come visit the UU Fellowship on Feb. 10 to find out what were the seven words she received but didn’t “hear.” Come early to partake of refreshments and fellowship. A board meeting, to which all members of the congregation are invited, will be held after the service.

West led the Spade King against your 5 Club contract. I know your upset with me for not showing all 4 hands, but to solve this hand you don’t need to see the opponents cards (that’s a hint). At first glance it’s evident that there are finesse situations in both the Heart and Club suits that need to be addressed if your going to make your contract. If you’re a regular reader of my column you know how I try to avoid taking finesses. However, in this hand you must finesse in order to have any chance for success. But if you must finesse you should examine if all finesses are equal. With that second hint as a backstop, how would you play this hand to virtually guarantee success. Although there are a number of finesses which are available, only one particular finesse can virtually guarantee your making 5 Clubs. After winning the opening lead with Ace of Spades, all you have to do is immediately finesse against the Jack of Clubs through West. If East wins the trick with either the Jack or the Ace he can’t attack Hearts profitably. Declarer wins any return and draws trumps and discards his Heart losers on dummy’s Diamond suit. The key lesson in this hand is that when you are presented with multiple finesse options, you must examine each possibility with it’s potential results if it loses. It then becomes a matter of choosing the finesse which gives you the highest chance for overall success.
