Marche Pittman. The total budget is for $25,754,086 at a recommended 51.75 cent per $100 of valuation tax rate, compared to the current 52 cents. The county projects to lose approximately $400,000 in state hold harmless money next year as well as an estimated $100,000 in property tax revenue following the county equalization and review board granting a partial appeal to the Bright’s Creek assessed tax value. Pittman said next year’s budget meets many capital needs, which are being funded through fund balance appropriation due to the expectation of excess revenues over expenditures for the year ending June 30, 2013. “Polk County has had excess revenue over expenditures (without the consideration of fund balance appropriated during the fiscal year for capital projects, paying off debt, etc.) since 2006 and that amount hasn’t been under $1.4 million in any of these years,” said Pittman. Capital expenditures included in next year’s budget proposal to be paid for out of fund balance include four new vehicles for the sheriff’s office and other equipment at $179,500, a new ambulance at $139,510, new vans for transportation with Polk’s portion being $12,592, two Ford Explorers; one for building inspections and one for the interim county manager at $51,190; a new server at $35,000, 10 computers, printers and scanners for the department of social services (DSS) at $7,050 for the county’s portion; cooking equipment for the jail at $5,000; a mower and spreader for maintenance at $2,700; replacement equipment for animal control at $2,000; a computer for the finance department at $1,000 and additional lighting for the district attorney’s office in the courthouse at $1,000 for a total of $436,542. Employees will also increase next year with a new shift ser-

geant, an inmate transport officer and a jail administrator added to the sheriff’s office and jail and the creation of an emergency management director/fire marshal position. The county is also making some part-time positions full time and making some part-time temporary positions permanent as well as adjusting two DSS positions for slightly higher salaries. The across the board salary increases will include a 2.5 percent increase to be effective Jan. 1, 2014 at a total cost of $88,044. The new budget also includes tax increases for the Saluda and Mill Spring Fire Departments. Saluda’s recommended increase is one cent while Mill Spring’s is 1.5 cents. Citizen comments included from Cindy Walker, who complimented commissioners on their budget worksessions and said she agrees with commissioners when they say the county needs to look at revenues versus expenditures and that the county needs to be run like a business. She also suggested that commissioners ask themselves what portion of services should be covered by property taxes and what percentage through fees and said that structure should be across the board to every department. Walker said it seemed to her that some departments weren’t held to the same standards. Walker also said while she appreciates the county giving taxpayer money back in terms of a tax decrease, she discussed it with her family and they’ve decided that individually the tax decrease is not going to make a big difference but collectively the county could fund something else so she offered to give her family’s $3.57 back to the county. Margaret Parker said she is thankful this board of commissioners is supportive of the sheriff’s office, fire departments and emergency services, but wishes the county would examine some requests more closely, like funding a car for administration but not funding a DSS child social (Continued on page 6)

The creativity of the next McClure generation is bringing new combinations and flavors to the table at Southside Smokehouse in Landrum. Sarah McClure, daughter of restaurant owner Robbie McClure, recently joined her father in the business with the anticipation of enticing new customers and stretching the culinary curiosity of regulars. “We’ve really started to have more and more people get excited about our specials because they get it – they get what I’m trying to do,” Sarah said. What she’s trying to do is excite tastebuds. Wednesday through Saturday Sarah whets palates of the more

The McClures have added a back patio with a TV, four two top tables under a cover and a high shelf bar for those who want to stand and mingle. “We’re still eclectic and funky, but slightly more upscale,” McClure said of the subtle but impactful changes she’s made to the almost decade old restaurant. Sarah said she attempted to make her escape from food and beverages – the family profession. She got her bachelors degree at Wofford and began work on a master’s degree in art history at the University of Georgia before economic realities pulled her into the kitchen. (Continued on page 9)

The Farm House/Ariat Charity Jumper Challenge Read more online at

Thank You! For participating in the recent Stamp Out Hunger food drive. With your help, over 4 tons of food was donated to Outreach and will be distributed to Polk County’s neediest residents. You made a difference! .

TR&HC Charity Horse Show Chairwomen, Jennifer Smith and Linda Ketcham, were the driving force behind the idea to create a $5,000 Charity Jumper Challenge. This event, now in it’s third year, will be held during the 85th TR&HC Charity Horse Show I, June 6-9 at FENCE. With the help of The Farm House owner Noreen Cothran, Ariat was secured as a sponsor. Modeled after the $1 million FTI Great Charity Challenge in Wellington, Fla., area nonprofits were invited to submit an application for the opportunity to participate in the event. Out of 29 applicants, eight were drawn out of a hat on Friday, May 24. The selected non-profits will be randomly paired with local riding teams to represent them in the Jumper Challenge to create an equal chance for winning. This unique multi-charity approach has also allowed the event to assemble a diverse portfolio of charities covering animal rescue, children’s causes, family care, medical support, equestrians, education, the arts and the environment among others. All eight of the randomly selected organizations will receive a portion of the prize money with first place winning

$1,500 to eighth place getting $250. New this year is a “second chance” drawing. Any of the charities that were not selected will have a chance at a $200 prize drawing to take place during the event. All of the riders are volunteering their time and skills to participate in this event. The Farm House/Ariat Charity Jumper Challenge will be held on Friday, June 7, 5 p.m. at the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center. We invite you to come out, bring a picnic, support your favorite non-profit and watch an exciting team relay event. The eight non-profits are: E m p o w e r i n g T h ro u g h Beauty Pacolet Area Conservancy Polk Equine Emergency Rescue Thermal Belt Friendship Council Town of Columbus Fire Department Town of Tryon Fire Department Tryon Kiwanis Tryon Mountain Troopers Pathfinder Club TR&HC thanks all of the non-profits for submitting applications and ask that you help to support them in their future endeavors. – article submitted by Laura Weicker
