opportunity offered by state legislation (HB 607) to form agricultural preservation districts. Polk County commissioners approved the voluntary agricultural district preservation ordinance (VAD) in 2002 and appointed a farmland preservation board in 2003. The purpose of the VAD was to encourage the voluntary preservation and protection of farmland from non-farm development to help maintain the rural character of the county. In 2005, the addition of the enhanced voluntary agricultural district was signed into law, which encouraged farmland preservation boards to provide farmers the option of entering a 10-year irrevocable conservation agreement. In 2006, Polk County approved the Enhanced Voluntary Agricultural District (EVAD) ordinance. In December 2007, Polk County approved a countywide farmland protection plan. The county’s first agriculture economic development director was hired in August 2008. “There have been services provided to accommodate almost every citizen in the county, whether their interests are big farming, home gardens, community garden, landscape gardens, raising chickens, beef, buffalo or goats, processing their own meats, making their own cheese or ice cream, or venturing into new products for the area such as aquaponics,

herbs or hops,” states a presentation by Reid. “The outreach has been tremendous but there is much more that can and should still be accomplished.” Current farmland preservation board members include Harmon, Slater, Bruce Edwards, Bill Davis, Jeff Searcy and Evangelena Barber with one vacancy open. Advisors to the board are Polk County Cooperative Extension Director John Vining and county commissioner Ted Owens. History of the ag center The Polk County Soil & Water Conservation District accepted a donation of the old Mill Spring School, which came after the county hired its first agriculture economic development director Lynn Sprague. The response from the community to the restoration of the school was tremendous, with donations and volunteering. The soil and water district owns the building, but does not make any profit. All monies from rentals, the store and donations are used to pay operational expenses which include an operations director and a maintenance employee. Any extra funding is used for continued restoration of the building. Polk County recently began advertising for an interim agriculture economic development director after Sprague’s resignation recently. Commissioners agreed to replace and continue funding the position during the joint meeting and are proposing to fully fund the department in next year’s budget, which begins July 1.

Archery Club wraps up first session At left, Rick Burney takes aim.

The Green Creek Archery Club Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) program just finished their first session at the Green Creek Community Center with a tournament for the members to show their skill and earn awards. JOAD offers both recurve and compound archers the opportunity to learn range safety and proper shooting technique in an environment that also fosters focus, increased selfconfidence, and team building skills. JOAD is open to any youth archer aged 8 to 20 and is designed to grow with the youth archer. Introductory JOAD

classes teach the fundamentals of proper shooting form; as the young archer develops, they will learn more advanced techniques. The sessions are held on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. on the range set up on the ball field behind the Green Creek Community Center and run for six weeks. The next session will start on June 13. Anyone interested in joining the fun is encouraged to come out then, or call Steve Burney at Medicap Pharmacy 828-8946112 for more information. – article submitted by Steve Burney

“Because,” I said, grasping at straws but not yet conceding defeat, “no woman would be seen dead hammering in ‘will you marry me’ signs. It would make them look way too desperate.” “And then there’s another way to look at this, too,” said Paul, triumphantly at seeing his verbal check mate come to fruition. “It

who have my dear little friend Patches. Patches had developed a disease similar to Cushions in humans. Patches taught a family and a whole community the kind of love this breed possesses. Many hearts were broken when she lost her battle. “It’s like I lost a family member,” Gary stated. Lord knows I understand the feeling. Patches was very young and somehow I feel the Good Lord sent her here to serve a purpose and when she served it, He wanted her back. I am having the original story “A lesson learned” reprinted; perhaps you all will see it as I do. Thanks for listening.

A lesson learned I’m quietly sitting in my favorite chair with a book in my lap and a pen and pad on the table beside me. Part of me is reading, part of me is praying, as I occasionally jot down a thought or two that comes to mind. I’m currently juggling too many dogs and I’m having problems following their progress and placing them. My funds are low but a fundraiser is coming up and I’ll be all right for a while. Things always work out because I have so many wonderful people assisting me, but at the moment my lower back is acting up

again and I’m feeling sorry for myself. The phone rings and I send a silent prayer, “Please let it be for Elaine.” My wife brings me the phone, “It’s Judy Davis – she needs to speak with you.” Judy is a straightforward, no nonsense person that I hold in high esteem. She knows and loves animals and would not be calling me with something frivolous. “Hi, Judy, dear, what can I do for you?” She tells me of a little female pit bull that has been roaming near her property;

she crawled under barbed wire and scratched her head and backside. “The Humane Society is full and I can’t find her owner,” she went on. “Is she all right?” I ask. “She’s beautiful, Lennie, and so sweet but she has some sort of rash on her underside. I can’t afford her right now – can you help?” “Take her down to Landrum vet in the morning and tell them to bill Lennie’s fund. I’ll call and confirm it and stop by to see her tomorrow after work.” (Continued on page 27)

“Thanks, Lennie, for this and all you do.” “One more thing, dear. I’m overloaded at the moment – I’ll see to all her needs but I’m going to leave her in your name. Please help in any way you can, especially in finding her a home.” Elaine takes the phone with a big smile on her face. “What’s so funny?” I ask. “Nothing,” she replies, walking away, shaking her head. This makes me smile – my dear wife knows me better than I know myself. The next day after work I head up to Dogwood Farms to check on Cosmo, Caruso and Falcon, three big beauties being cared for there. Josh is a valued lifeline who does wonders with these animals. I next head over to Landrum vet to look in on Tiny, who is

now being trained by Kayla Parrish and Leo, one of my heartworm kids who’s being held until room opens up back at F.H.S. After checking these two I head towards the pit bull Judy brought in earlier. I’m a bit weary and my heart isn’t in it. I’ve a few more stops to make and then I want to head home for a shower and a nap. Dr. Raines tells me she has hookworm and they believe the rash is an allergy. Both she and Elaine, her staff leader, follow me to her cage. I view this beautiful little girl who is all white with brown patches. She looks up at me with soulful eyes and her tail thumping. I open the cage and sit in with her as Elaine and Donna look on. “How far do you want us to go with her?” Elaine asks. “Give her whatever she needs,” I reply, knowing these two ladies will do just that and keep my fees as low as possible.

I pull a leash from my pocket and take her outside for a walk. Except for stopping to relieve herself, she walks glued to my leg. I bring her inside and sit down, intending to give her some love and assurance. She proceeds to lay her head in my lap and looks up at me with all the hope, love and trust she could muster. Immediately all the weariness and doubt wash away from me and the flood gates open as tears fall uncontrollably down my cheeks. “I get the message, Lord,” I pray. “Who am I to look at anyone of Your beautiful creatures and think it’s just another dog that I may or may not have time for. Where would we be if You treated us in such a manner? Please forgive me, Lord, I have faith that You’ll help me find a way as You always do.” This sweet girl is approximately one year old and they have named her Trixie, though I prefer Patches. On second

thought I believe I know who sent her to me and why – perhaps the name Angel is more appropriate. Thanks for listening.

Letter to the Editor

A tribute to the fallen, running a little late

To the editor: Each year on Memorial Day I get to Memorial Park early in the morning before the festivities begin. It’s usually a short visit, maybe 10 or 15 minutes where I’ll walk around and quietly whisper prayers of gratitude. This year on the Sunday before, I held the annual gala for Lennie’s Kids and as a result I was up a little late. I got a late start in the morning and had to tie up a few loose ends from the night before, thus because of running a little late I missed my annual visit. I have a cousin who is a Vietnam vet and he hates this holiday

Bonnie Bardos’ “Esto Perpetua” series.

in 2012-13. “Art, like writing and poetry,” Bardos said. “For me it is an expression of the soul… the deepest self, where time and place do not matter. I am on a higher plane when creating. There is intense spirit and energy in my hands. Often I do not know where I will take my creation. I am influenced by color, by thought, by the natural world around us, and see nature as

because it brings back memories he’d rather forget. He shuts himself in for this weekend and avoids everyone and everything. He called and said, “I have something for your kids, please pick it up after the holiday.” I made my way to Ingles and picked up a rotisserie chicken and some fresh donuts, both his favorites. I had some great treats for his dog Biff and Max, his doggie houseguest. Ignoring his request, I went over to visit, he would not be alone this Memorial Day. It was a great visit in which we spoke mostly about my kids, some he’d helped in the past. After a while I looked at my watch, “Darn it Ted I have to get to the memorial, I’m running a little late.” He laughed, handed me a check and just said, “Thanks.” Heads nodded in recognition

intensely spiritual and symbolic. Always, I endeavor in my work to speak the unknown, to convey the unseen. My work is based on intuition, and what feeling I am attuned to at the moment. I feel the world intensely, both the ‘outer’ world, and most of all, the natural world: which is deeply connected to my inner world.” – article submitted by Steve Wong

as I took my place in the crowd. I know and admire all the Honor Guard along with many other onlookers. As always the tribute is moving and beautiful with a deep reverence offered to our fallen. Afterwards I greeted many old friends as I headed back to my car. I left to handle a few more errands in town and returned an hour later to a quiet and empty Memorial Park. I walked silently past all the markers and began to pray, “I’m sorry I’m a little late this year Lord, I’ll try not to let it happen again. I know You’ve embraced all our brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives for love of country. Sad to say, more will come for freedom is not free. Be prepared Lord for all too often, many will be getting to You just a little bit early.” – Leonard Rizzo, Columbus

Q. Is there a way I can tell my

children some personal things outside of my estate plan? A. Yes, we have had clients be very creative in the ways they choose to communicate with their loved ones after they are gone. My own uncle left a very touching and inspirational letter to each of his sons. I have had clients leave detailed letters outlining their wishes for future generations, their values and philosophy of life. Several have even videotaped their messages to children and grandchildren. Many of these messages have been quite well done and much appreciated by the recipients.

Beekeepers debate shrinking bee population On May 16, about 18 local beekeepers met at the Crystal Creek Center in Mill Spring to discuss the alarming decline in honeybee hives worldwide, with specific focus on the state of beedom in the foothills. The number of years of beekeeping range from one to 30, with an average of seven. The fraction of hives lost since last year ran from zero to 100 percent, with an average of 44 percent, which is severe. After I dominated way too much of the discussion with a slide presentation of possible causes for the so-called Colony Collapse Disorder (sorry about that – we’ll do more discussion next time), the participants were surveyed, and here are the results of what they thought, in descending order of what is most likely: Genetic homogeneity of queens: 43 percent. Most of the queen bees purchased commercially in the area come from a restricted number of bloodlines. The thought is that there may be some weaknesses emerging coming from the lack of hybrid crossbreeding vitality. Chemotoxicity: 38 percent. The new neonicotinoid pesticides are very toxic to bees, and some think they cause central-nervoussystem damage to the bees, causing them to be unable to navigate home correctly. While there is not much commercial spraying in the area, this class of pesticide is in wide use now, even by homeowners and gardeners, and some beekeepers

use pesticides to control varroa mites. One study showed that the suspected residues of neonicotinoid pesticides in high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) fed to bees by commercial beekeepers can cause honeybee hives to collapse. Neonicotinoid pesticides include acetamiprid, thiamethoxam, and imidacloprid, which is in local use to control fire ants. One attendee, whose neighbor treated for fire ants, lost 100 percent of her hives. Varroa mites and assorted other infestations: 24 percent. Nosema cerinae is a new variety of the nosema fungus, introduced in the U.S. in the mid-1990s. It was associated with worker die-off in the field. Multiple causes acting together: 16 percent Bt toxin in GMO pollen: 15 percent, and Bt toxin in GMO beet sugar: 15 percent. Since the advent of GMO crops, the insecticidal toxin Bt has been bred into many common crops, including almost all sugar beets. High fructose corn syrup, HFCS, is processed from the juice of corn stalks, and contains Bt. Feeding honeybees sugar water containing sugar from sugar beets or HFCS can be expected to be hazardous to honey bees. RNA viruses: 13 percent. Several RNA viruses have been found to occur almost exclusively in hives that have collapsed. These same hives typically have nosema cerinae present. The RNA viruses (Continued on page 31)

2005 BMW 6 SERIES 645Ci Convertible

Driving this car is probably the most fun I have had since my last visit to the BMW performance center. 2005 BMW 645Ci convertible. Titanium silver with a black top and black leather. This is truley a fine example of the ultimate driving machine. 4.4L V8 coupled to the steptronic automatic. This one is loaded with all the bells and whistles. Just getting broken in at 136k miles. Serviced with redline synthetic oil. Price with summer fun in the sun in mind at $20,000


version of the origin says Abner was swimming to Florida from Cuba as a child and as he lagged behind the group, they called with desperate encouragement saying, “Swim, Johnny, swim!” Another account of the name says it’s a line they liked from the movie Jaws, as one character encouraged another to escape a deadly shark attack calling, “Swim, Johnny, swim!” No matter what the reason for the unique name, they command my attention and after my first viewing of one of their music videos, I was won over by their engaging and harmonious sound as well as their powerful chemistry.

The first time I said the name, I was careful to take time to figure it out. Then after I researched, listened to the band, surfed the Internet gleaning tidbits of information about this new married musical duo, I said the name with authority – like I had been saying it all my life. Then all of the sudden I said again, “What? Why all the capital letters, and just what in the world does JOHNNYSWIM mean?” I’m not going to get a straight answer from the handsome couple, Abner Ramirez and his wife (Donna Summer’s daughter) Amanda, performing under that name.
