Polk Central to tap onto waterline project by Samantha Hurst

Polk County school board members unanimously voted Monday, Aug. 12 to connect Polk Central Elementary School to public water when the county completes a waterline extension that will run past the school. Superintendent Bill Miller said getting connected to a public water system makes

sense for the system’s long range planning. “We are not water people, our focus is education,” Miller said. “We contract with a company to monitor our well water – but why should we be in that business? The benefit of being on a public water system is that whatever the newest regulations are (Continued on page 9)

50th annual Coon Dog Day proves profitable with hard work by Leah Justice

The City of Saluda has Coon Dog Day figured out after reporting a $6,410 profit following the 2013 festival held in July. The Saluda Board of Commissioners met Monday, Aug. 12 and reviewed the final numbers on the festival, with this year marking its 50th year. The festival saw $37,426 in revenues this year compared to $31,016 in expenditures. The city obtained $10,450 in sponsorships, $4,893 in donations, $8,099 for the 5K run, $6,853 in vendor fees, $4,037 in merchandise sales, $2,760 in parking fees and $334 in royalty, according to the report. Expenses included $3,753 in merchandise, $8,623 for entertainment, $1,250 for sanitation, $3,125 for public safety, $2,750 for shuttles, $583 in golf carts, $7,915 in 5K run expenses, $746 in employee and volunteer expenses, $376 in advertising and $1,895 in other supplies and expenses, according to the city’s report. The city was thanked by a few residents who spoke on the hard work city employees do for the festival. City administrator Erny Wil-

“It’s a long process for a one-day activity but it actually turned out pretty good this year.” -- Erny Williams

liams said staff and commissioner Leon Morgan spend neverending hours on Coon Dog Day. Williams mentioned the $10,450 the city obtained in sponsorships this year and said it takes the city working together to accomplish a successful Coon Dog Day. He said when he first started working for the city, commissioners actually budgeted money to cover Coon Dog Day. “It’s paid for itself this year,” Williams said as he thanked Morgan and city staff. “It’s a long process for a one-day activity but it actually turned out pretty good this year.” Coon Dog Day organizers estimate this year’s festival drew between 10,000 and 15,000 visitors to downtown Saluda. Coon Dog Day is held every year the Saturday following July 4 and includes food, crafts, children’s entertainment, music, a street dance, a parade and dog competitions.

Polk County Big Brothers Big Sisters youth and mentors enjoy an end of summer pool party. (photo submitted)

Polk Big Brothers Big Sisters enjoy big splash at pool party It was another cloudy summer day when Polk Bigs and Littles gathered for the annual Big Brothers Big Sisters pool party and picnic. The rain intervened almost immediately and sent everyone scurrying for shelter. Not a problem, since hosts John and Shawn Matthew had thought of everything and quickly arranged picnic tables and seating beneath a covered area. Big Sisters Sue Anderson and Lynn Montgomery contributed goodies and helped set up the picnic while chef John manned the grill. So despite the drizzle, all were able to enjoy grilled hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, chips, watermelon and cookies. As the skies poured and rattled, hopes for a bright sunny day at the pool were dampened. But, miraculously there was a break

in the weather. When the children got the all-clear signal, there was a perceptible shift in mood. Lots of smiling, laughing and splashing ensued. The skies held back for plenty of time, allowing a fun afternoon for a pool full of happy Littles and a few adventurous Bigs. Most Bigs kept a watchful eye from the deck while visiting with other mentors. Everything came together to make it another successful event, thanks to the wonderful volunteer Bigs and hosts, the Matthews and the surprising shift in the weather.       To help children reach their greatest potential, Big Brothers Big Sisters matches youth ages six to 14, most from single-parent homes, with screened and trained adults.  BBBS holds several group activities annually, but most “outings” are individually planned

Polk commission approves home occupations II and vacation rentals by Leah Justice

Tryon Daily BulleTin • LocaL coverage • LocaL News • LocaL sports •eNtertaiNmeNt • aNd more!

Polk County residents can now have an additional building to conduct a home business and rent out property for vacations. The Polk County Board of Commissioners met Aug. 5 and approved the new uses of customary home occupations II and vacation rentals in the county’s zoning ordinance for the Multiple Use (MU), Equestrian (E) and Agriculture Residential (AR5) Districts. Commissioners approved the new uses unanimously following a public hearing where no residents made comments. Commissioners also made changes to the draft home occupations II ordinance approved by its planning board. Commissioner Tom Pack asked where the planning board came up with a 2,500 square foot building allowed for home occupations II. County planner Cathy Ruth said the planning board based that number on the size of a garage. Pack said he thinks the county could go up to 4,000 or 5,000 square feet to give a little more room. An accessory building is allowed for the home occupations II on parcels that are at least one acre in size. Commissioners agreed to allow a 2,500 square foot building on one and ½ acres or less and to allow an up to 4,000 square foot building on anything greater than one and ½ acres. Commissioners also decided to change the planning board’s recommendation of allowing one non-resident employee for the home occupations II to allowing up to four non-resident employees. The increase in employees allowed triggered commissioners to discuss parking for home occupations II. Commissioners said depending on the type of business, a lot of parking may

“You may have a 4,000 square foot building and only two to three employees and they might not need them [parking spaces].” -- Ray Gasperson

not be necessary. Pack said he is questioning parking requirements because he wants to make sure the county doesn’t make it a burden on residents but at the same time wants to make sure they have enough spaces. Commissioner Ray Gasperson said it’s going to vary depending on the nature of the business. “You may have a 4,000 square foot building and only two to three employees and they might not need them [parking spaces],” Gasperson said. County attorney Jana Berg said residents could have anything from a real estate office at their home to a consignment shop. She recommended commissioners allow her and Ruth to revisit the parking issue and tailor it to particular businesses. On vacation rentals, the county’s former zoning ordinance didn’t allow transient living so the new ordinance puts a definition in the county’s ordinance. The vacation rental use must be registered with the county’s travel and tourism department because there is a required occupancy tax for renting out a building on a short-term basis for more than two weeks in a given year. The county formerly allowed home occupations, which will now be referred to as home occupations I under its zoning ordinance, which only allows a home business inside a residence.

for the project was set to begin last month. The project is to be completed by the end of this year. The county plans to spend $1,353,491.59 on the line and has offered reduced tap fees for residential customers until the end of the year. Miller said the system wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to take advantage of this deal because a line connecting the school would need to be significantly larger than a residential line. The school system would likely need around a 3-4 inch line, Miller said, versus the 3/4 â&#x20AC;&#x201C;inch or 5/8inch meters allowed for the $700 reduced fee. Miller said the amount the

school system will have to pay for a new meter and to run a line from the meter to the school is unclear. County engineers were at the school Wednesday, Aug. 14 to discuss a plan of action. Miller said the board hopes the costs will remain under $10,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you amortize that cost over say, 40 years, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about pennies a day,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. The system spent $40,000 about three years ago to improve its well system at Polk Central. Miller said at the time it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like commissioners planned to run water near the school quickly enough to avoid the upgrades. Miller said the plan is to cap the well in case a

need arises for its use in the future. Miller said the aim would be for the school system to do construction work during next summer. He said because the well system is working properly the school is in no rush to tap on. Sunny View Elementary would be the only school remaining on a well system after this project is complete. That school is also facing well issues as Miller said there is a leak in the water tank. Miller said that fix could cost $30-40,000 just like the previous fix at Polk Central. Miller said the system would like to see Sunny View on a public water system in the future as well.

I like to visit old cemeteries. No, I’m not sadistic. It’s not a morbid curiosity that draws me to them. It is the epitaphs etched into the gravestones that are of interest to me; some are religious and inspirational. “Asleep in Jesus” is one. It is excerpted from I Thessalonians, chapter four. Others are a warm and tender tribute to a parent, like “She was a loving mother.” Occasionally one will be downright amusing. An epitaph by one who may have been accused of being a hypochondriac read, “I told you I was sick.” My very favorite, however, is not on any gravestone but in the Bible Book of Genesis (5:21-24). It is that of a man named Enoch. Enoch was a very ordinary man. He never did any-

thing outstanding to distinguish himself. He wouldn’t have been featured in the news media or a guest on anybody’s talk show. He was just, well… ordinary. In his 65 year he fathered Methuselah, famous for his longevity. And in that same year the Bible says Enoch began to walk with God. He “walked with God” for 300 years. What a wonderful characterization of a man’s life. He “walked with God.” What a eulogy that would make! I can’t imagine a more desirable epitaph. Enoch “walked with God” and then one day he just disappeared. He simply vanished without a trace. The Bible accounts for what happened to him. It says suc(Continued on page 9)

cinctly “and he was not, for God took him.” One day God just reached out and snatched him up. What a way to go! It’s not likely that when my time is up it will be said of me in the same sense that it was said of Enoch, “he was not, for God took him.” But I do hope it can be said, “he walked with God.” How about you?

I decided to try something completely different, and I couldn’t do any worse than I was. That decision changed the way I fished in the fall from that day on. You can speed up the process by doing a little prep work. There is a reason I drive my wife bananas watching the weather three times a day, it’s to prepare for what changes will be in place the next time I go fishing. Knowing a cold front is pass-

ing, a downpour of rain above the lake, a change in barometric pressure, these and more can be known before you ever reach the lake. You can also call for dam release schedules and learn what days are normally the busiest on your lakes. But you will have to make your final analysis on the water. So, if it’s not working, it may be time to try something else.
