The block, Rays of Hope, was chosen to represent that, through adversity, hope is always present. Carol Doak, an internationallyrecognized quilter, designed the block.

Spartanburg Co., Forest City, investigating check fraud case Polk County clears officer by Leah Justice

The Forest City Police Department and Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office have opened investigations into the Polk County case of Jessica Herman, accused of credit card fraud. Meanwhile the Polk County Sheriff’s Office has cleared her husband, animal control officer Michael Herman, of any knowledge of the alleged crimes. Herman, 27, of Green Creek was arrested on Feb. 28 by Polk County and charged with seven counts of identity theft and seven counts of obtaining property under false pretenses, according to sheriff’s office records. Polk County Sheriff Donald Hill conducted an internal investigation to determine whether or not Michael Herman had any knowledge of the alleged crimes and has cleared Michael Herman of any wrongdoing.

Bill 33/S80, which would make it legal to possess steel traps in Polk, Rutherford and Cleveland Counties, passed its first reading in the N.C. Senate. Polk commissioners approved a resolution in January asking the state to allow trapping in Polk with House Bill 33 being filed on Jan. 31. The House of Representatives passed the first reading on Feb. 4 and its second and third readings on Feb. 28. The bill was then recommended to the Senate. As of last week, the bill was referred to the committee on agriculture/environment/natural resources. Odonnell said she has reservations about re-enacting trapping to Polk County and said it is scientifically proven to be untrue that coyotes kill our pets, kill livestock, attack children and have rabies. “In 2011, N.C. rabies statistics showed that coyotes had the least amount of rabies of any species of animal,” Odonnell said. “There were two cases; that was less than cows and horses.” She also said she’s spoken with Justin McVay, N.C. wildlife biologist, who did his masters on coyotes involving 300 scat samples using DNA that showed their diet primarily consisted of small rodents and rabbits with a small amount containing feral hog, chicken and white tail deer, but no cats or dogs. Odonnell suggested if people feel threatened by coyotes coming close to their property a counter conditioning method using hazing techniques is recommended, such as making loud noises with pots and pans, spraying with a hose or motion detector lights. Other practices to keep coyote away, Odonnell said is to have guardian animals like donkeys and dogs, keeping feed locked away and chickens up at night. On beavers, Odonnell said Colleen Olfenbuttel, biologist with the N.C. Wildlife Resource Commission told her about the BMAP program, which is not designed to eradicate beaver

population but rather assist the N.C. Department of Transportation, local government and private landholders. The program cost the participating county $4,000 annually, Odonnell said with more than 45 counties currently participating. When someone has a conflict with a beaver, a federal employee will visit the area to assess the problem and offer solutions, including a flow device, tree management or trapping some of the beaver, Odonnell said. She said the program is used to supplement existing solutions in the county and not designed to put trappers out of business. “In 2006 a survey found that trapping as a solution to beaver problems had a 79 percent failure rate within two years due to re-settlement by new beavers,” Odonnell told commissioners. “Conditions that attract beaver will always attract beaver.” She added that flow devices are relatively cost-effective, low maintenance solutions that regulate the water level of dams and keep culverts open. An example of a flow device is a beaver deceiver, Odonnell said, which is a cagelike device that is installed into the dam and keeps the dam open. “I hope that you will consider the many constituents that love our wildlife and don’t want to see just anyone trap and kill an animal ‘just because they can,” Odonnell said. “Our ecosystem is a finely tuned system that God created and each living creature depends on the other one for its existence. I would hate to jeopardize that and I hope you will give this subject your utmost attention.” Commissioners asked Odonnell for copies of her information. Commissioners have heard strong opinions on both sides of the issue including from residents who have experienced property damage from beavers and that other methods have not been effective. Many have also asked commissioners to ask the state to hold off on the bill and to create a committee to come up with other solutions to the problems that are more humane.

St. Luke’s Hospital lifts flu season visitation restrictions As of the end of February St. Luke’s Hospital lifted visitor restrictions that had been in place since December 2012 related to the flu outbreak. Visitors under the age of 18 are now allowed to visit patients in the hospital. A significant drop in the number of patients being seen with flu-like symptoms prompted the change. Despite the drop in flu cases, hospital officials recommend that visitors experiencing flu-like symptoms refrain from entering the hospital.

“As we make this change, rest assured we continue our focus on hand hygiene and other infection prevention measures that keep our patients and staff safe,” said Lori Rothell, RN, infection preventionist. To further help reduce the chances of getting or spreading the flu, Rothell recommends coughing or sneezing into elbows or tissues, staying current on vaccinations, frequent hand washing and not touching eyes, nose or mouth with hands.

Also, any St. Luke’s Hospital employees who did not take the flu vaccine are no longer required to wear masks within 6 feet of patients. The common cold and flu are both contagious viral infections. Nasal congestion, sore throat and sneezing are common with colds. Both colds and flu bring coughing, headache and chest discomfort. With the flu, though, you are likely to run a high fever for several days and have headache, body aches, fatigue and weakness.

“We have also posted notices throughout St. Luke’s with common sense steps all of us can take to avoid catching or spreading the flu,” adds Rothell. “These include thorough hand washing with soap or alcohol-based hand cleaners, covering coughs and, if required or advised, to wear surgical face masks. So far these procedures have worked extremely well at limiting the spread of the flu at St. Luke’s.” - article submitted by Jennifer Wilson

Support Group of the Autism Society of America and assists residents from Polk, Rutherfordton, Hendersonville and Upstate (SC). Educators and supportive friends are always welcome. The co-coordinators want to continue to support our community and are actively looking for volunteers for babysitting,

organizing and planning, and help arranging speakers, etc. If you need to reach the group for questions, volunteering or support, contact Tracey via email at tracey@ (please put “support group” in the subject line). – article submitted by Tracey Daniels

“I want to thank Brian King and John Crotts for this opportunity. I am excited and honored to be named a partner,” said Rustin Duncan. King Law Offices has opened

two new locations in the last year, in order to meet the need of increasing demand for the firm’s legal services. The offices serve Greenville County and Spartanburg County in South Carolina and McDowell County in North Carolina. Attorney John Crotts said the

increased demand for the firm’s representation is in part because of the firm’s success at retaining existing clients. “We offer a variety of legal services, including simple matters such as basic wills and traffic tickets at affordable rates,” Crotts said. “We also provide more in

depth representation for business clients, family law, estate planning, and civil litigation. Once we have the opportunity to serve a new client, even for a small matter such as a traffic ticket or a will, they remember the personalized service they receive and return for their other legal needs.”

Polk County softball crushes E. Henderson 19-6 at home by Chris Hurst

Polk County’s varsity softball team staged a comeback that they would ride to an early victory Thursday, March 7. Starting their turn at bat in the third inning down 3-1, the girls would go on to score an impressive 18 runs over the East Henderson Eagles, 15 of which were scored in the third inning. Strong defense in the fourth and fifth innings allowed the Wolverines to invoke the mercy rule in the bottom of the fifth, ending the game 19-6. After the game, Coach Jeff Wilson had nothing but positive things to say about his team. “East Henderson is a good school, you’re talking 3-A, and our team did what we needed to do today,” he said. The Wolverines would keep their momentum going throughout the remainder of the game, giving up only three more runs in the fourth.

“Our goals this year are to hit the ball well and make plays on defense, and I absolutely think we did both those things today,” said Wilson. Katie Ruff had an excellent game on the mound. After giving up only six hits and two walks, she pitched two strike outs over the four innings she pitched. As a starting pitcher, she is now 2-0 on the season. On the offensive side, Brittney Jones led the team with two hits, and Cassie Couch led the team with four runs. “We’ve worked really hard on hitting this year, and I think you saw some of the payoff today,” Wilson said about the overall offensive effort of the Wolverine softball team. Following the victory over East Henderson, Polk County is now 3-0 on the season. Their next home game is Tuesday, March 12, against the Madison Patriots.

Young Landrum baseball team falls short in first home game by Mark Schmerling

High school baseball players who spend a season or two together often gain a collective strength that wins games. Last Thursday, March 7 a young Landrum team that had only played together twice, couldn’t quite get it together, as visiting Broome claimed a 10-0 win after five chilly innings.

Want Your ad Here?

Tuesday’s scheduled home opener against Carolina was postponed by rain. In a contest where fielders on both teams juggled the ball, and the ball hardly jumped off the bats, Broome scored three in the first, and added seven in the third, to prove the theory that the team which makes fewer mistakes usually scores more runs.

“It’s just not any fun when it’s like that,” remarked Cardinals’ head coach Ray McCallister, referring to the cold, “especially when you’re getting your fanny whipped.” With McCallister’s squad boasting just two seniors (just one returning senior), the good news should be that this team will just get better with more

experience. While acknowledging that, McCallister added, “I’m not a very patient person when it comes to things like that.” Thursday’s contest certainly tried McCallister’s patience. Broome had two on base in the top of the first, when a misjudged fly ball to right field bounced just

short of the fence for a two-run triple. A pitch skipping away from the plate allowed the third run to score. Cardinals’ starter Ty Pittman threw 80 pitches in less than three full innings, but got little support in the field and from his teammates’ bats, as Landrum banged out jut two hits. In the top of the third, Broome sent seven runners around the bases without the benefit of many hits, but took advantage of a missed double play opportunity, an errant throw that bounded through the infield and other not-quite-good-enough plays by the Cardinals. McCallister noted that not being able to turn that double play, and getting just one out didn’t help his team, adding that if some of those plays had gone the other way, the score would have been much closer. But, he added, “That’s base-

ball. You have to make the plays.” Reliever Jonah Corn held Broome in check, using an assortment of off-speed pitches and mostly good control. “He’s dependable,” McCallister said of Corn. “He’ll throw strikes.” One of Corn’s offerings did plunk a batter, but Corn was able to strand him, and stop the bleeding, giving the Cardinals a chance to get back in the game. Their best chance came soon after, when they loaded the bases with one out. But, a strikeout, followed by a very close out at first on an infield grounder, kept at least one run from scoring, and ended a potential rally. “Hopefully, when the weather warms up, we’ll warm along with it,” said McCallister. After hosting Crescent last Friday, the Cardinals travel to Powdersville tomorrow (Tuesday), and to Crescent on Thursday. On Friday, March 8 they were back home against Liberty.

LMS baseball ties with Lockhart The Landrum Middle School Cardinals baseball team played its second straight home game this week as the Lockhart Red Devils came to visit. Landrum got out to a 3-0 lead through the first three innings. Then Lockhart scored three runs in the fifth to tie it and two more in the sixth to go ahead. “Things looked bleak for our team, but never give up or count our Cardinals out because we came clawing back into the game,’ said Coach Jimmy “Hambone” Camp. With one out, Austin Farmer got on base, then stole second, as the opposing pitcher threw ball after ball. Adam Burns hit a shot to short, but the first baseman couldn’t handle the throw moving Farmer over to third. With Cardinals on the corners, Cody ‘Flash’ Fortenberry came in to pinch run for Burns. Lockhart tried to catch Fortenberry stealing, allowing Austin to score on the play and leaving

Fortenberry on third. Trey Jackson then ripped a ball out into the night in right field, which tied the game up as Fortenberry scored. Now, Noah Israel came to the plate. Jackson, the team’s go ahead run, stole second and then third. The Lockhart coach stopped the game to change pitchers twice, and a time out to talk things over. The game ended in a 5-5 tie when they automatically walked Israel because of a two-hour time limit and the Drop Dead rule. Alex Hawk led the team with two hits, with Joseph Quinn, Cole Steele, Peyton Kemmerlin, Tyler Gibbs, Adam Burns and Trey Jackson each having one hit. Dalton Kuykendall, Joseph Quinn, Peyton Kemmerlin, Austin Farmer and Adam Burns each scored one run. The team’s next game will be against Campobello-Gramling at Mabry’s field today, Monday, March 11 starting at 4:30 p.m. – article submitted by Coach Jimmy Camp
