The program is asking Polk County for approximately $12,000 worth of funding for an initial three years of service, but representatives said that amount could lessen dramatically depending on participation from other agencies. “2-1-1 data can be critical,” said Nygaard. “We talk to people from all walks of life and are able to see the gaps (in services).” Nygaard said there are 16 million calls in a year across the country to 2-1-1 services and 86,000 calls across North Carolina. There were 37,000 calls handled by the Asheville center in a year. For similarly-sized areas to Polk, such as Madison County, there were 1,000 calls to 2-1-1. More than 90 percent of Americans have access to 2-1-1 while 87 percent of North Carolinians are now serviced by 2-1-1, Nygaard said. The program is through the United Way of Asheville with the department of social services being the conduit for funding. Hines said it’s hard to put a dollar figure on what the service is worth. If someone needed to call the Collins Dental Center, which would they remember, he asked, 2-1-1 or 828-894-3120.

The artwork is currently hanging on the first floor hall of the ag center. Stop by anytime MondayFriday 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. or Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. to vote on your favorite square from each school. The squares will be on display until March 22. The Mill Spring Ag Center is located at 156 School Road in Mill Spring. – article submitted by Laura Brookshire “Can you put a dollar figure on that?” Hines asked. “2-1-1 is an investment for our district.” Hines said he’s endorsing the program because he knows it works. “Folks, the reason I’m here tonight is public health,” said Hines. “That’s the investment you make as leaders. We believe we want to give this system a try because it helps our citizens.” Commissioner chair Michael Gage asked when people call are they directly connected to the service or do they give them a number to call. Nygaard said it depends; the service operator may give a number but does have the availability to transfer the caller and send them directly through. She said some residents may be calling for information, such as asking for library hours of operation. The funding would pay for 24-7 availability and also for interpreters in case a caller is non-English speaking as well as the management of the database. Commissioner Ted Owens suggested the county take it under consideration and asked that representatives get back to commissioners to update the board what other funding it has received. If funded, the program would be out of the county’s next fiscal year budget, which begins July 1. Nygaard said organizers would like to launch the program on July 1 this year.

Lair is a member of the I.C.C. Foundation Board. In 2005, Lair won the NC Governor’s Volunteer Award. Lair came to the Thermal Belt from Charlotte in 2001. Previously, she was employed

Her education includes a BA in psychology, an MA in education and counseling from WCU and George Washington University. She has advanced training in drug and alcohol counseling. Lair and her husband, Dr. Robert E. Lair, Jr., have three children. Marlene lives in Chesterfield, MO, Karen in Hendersonville, and Greg in Monroe, N.C. They have six grandchildren. For 35 years, the Second Wind Hall of Fame has pursued its mission to identify the most deserving community volunteers and to celebrate the services they provide. There are currently more than 180 Second Winders among the area’s retired resident population. Their annual banquet meeting is scheduled for Sept. 27 when new inductees, like Lair, will be welcomed into membership. – article submitted by Larry Poe

Growing up, i knew that lint collected around the dryer and the navel, and that neither was particularly appealing. eventually, i learned there was another kind of Lent, and it wasn’t particularly appealing, either. forty days of self-imposed penance seemed bewildering. i know that Jesus was tempted in the wild for 40 days, but in case no one has noticed, we bear little resemblance to Jesus. Sure, he was able to survive, but do we have the wherewithal? is it necessary or wise to struggle with such a

Upstairs Artspace gallery unveils three eclectic shows The Upstairs Artspace announces the opening of three exhibits on Friday, March 8, with a reception on Saturday, March 9, from 5 - 8 p.m. In the main gallery, Asheville artists Moni Hill, Alicia Armstrong and Spencer Herr explore art’s role in the wake of tragedy in “Here, After.” The exhibit was conceived in the wake of the tragic December killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. “These artists are all parents of young children, so they shared the gut reaction that millions of Americans felt when they heard about what happened in Newtown -- from the fear to the sense that any of us could be faced with such sudden and heartbreaking loss,” said Margaret Curtis, chair of the Upstairs exhibits committee. “The artists have responded in such different and thoughtful ways.

Spencer Herr explores the myth of redemptive violence. Moni Hill contemplates the many twists and turns along life’s meandering path and the shape of absence or loss. Alicia Armstrong challenges western notions of dualism in works that acknowledge the coexistence of good and evil, and the possibility of renewal and rebirth after tragedy.” In “Southern Comfort,” which will be featured in the Upstairs’ small-works gallery, photographer Ben Nixon documents the Southern landscape in a haunting series of photographs. In the downstairs gallery, potters Jim Cullen, Jim Cornell, Gary Huntoon, David Zacharias, Doug Dacey, John Turner and Claude Graves update an age-old medium in an exhibit of ceramic work –”Older Than Dirt.” A “walk and talk” tour will be offered, free of charge, at 4 p.m. on March 9, before the opening

Saluda students wonder where’s the snow? Students at Saluda Elementary have given up on Ol’ Man Winter. First, second and fourth graders recently found ways to create their own snow. Students in Mrs. McDonald’s second grade class wrote winter stories and created their own snow globes with pictures of themselves inside the globes. Mrs. Rackley’s fourth-graders helped Ms. Carpenter’s firstgraders complete a winter math activity with some snow (mar shmallows). The two classes then went outdoors for a snowball fight (with marshmallows) and enjoyed eating some snow (more marshmallows). (article and photos submitted)

Top: First and fourth-grade girls enjoy a “snowball” fight with marshmallows. Middle, left: Eating “snow” or marshmallows were, from left to right, first graders Alisha Richardson, Anna Jackson, Maggie McCammon, Zaelea Eller and Adelaide Gardner. Middle, right: Taylor Cowlishaw proudly displays her snow globe and winter story. Bottom: At the table for a math snow activity are fourth-graders Christian Netschytailo and Drake Waggoner, as well as first-graders Regan Moss, Adelaide Gardner and Shelby Lookadook.(photos submitted)

Make Believe Ball winners Foothills Humane Society (FHS) conducts an annual fundraiser titled “Make Believe Ball.” This unique “ball” is an opportunity for donors to participate without attending an actual function. They simply respond to the invitation with a donation, and they never need to leave the comfor ts of home. The recent fundraiser was a big success with many more “nonattendees” than ever in the past. Part of the fun of the event is that one lucky winner’s name is drawn, and a wonderful prize is given. This year the winner received a beautiful painting by well-known local artist, Joan MacIntyre. Shown is artist Joan MacIntyre, center, with this year’s prize winners Sally and Hugh Hursey. (photo submitted)

LaPlaca tells Columbus Lions how to delay aging Dan LaPlaca, owner and co-founder of PRO Physical Therapy in Columbus, recently presented a program to the Columbus Lions Club in which he told members how they can make the most of their third act in life – putting off 70 percent of aging until the end of life. There are three basic steps. First, exercise six days a week; second, quit eating food that is bad for you; and third, care, commit and connect to others. The Lions feel they have the third step covered, but the other two – maybe not so much.

LaPlaca emphasized that although these steps are not easy, they are well worth the effort if we can stay healthy, strong and active until the third act curtain closes. The Columbus Lions meet on the first and third Thursday evenings at Calvert’s Restaurant in Columbus, and they encourage anyone interested in community service to visit with them. For information, call Helen Trevathan at 894-7062. – article submitted by Helen Trevathan

The winners of each bingo game and those who purchase all night bingo passes will be allowed to vote on the best dancing pair.
