Private road waterline funding in jeopardy by Leah Justice

The majority of the Polk County Board of Commissioners said they want the waterline extension policy to specifically say there will be no county dollars spent to extend waterlines to private roads. Polk County Commissioners met Sept. 9 and the majority approved directing county attorney Jana Berg and interim county manager Marche Pittman to draft

changes to the current waterline extension policy to clarify that the county will not offer a 60/40 funding split to residents on private roads or to private subdivisions. Commissioner Ray Gasperson voted against the direction. Commissioner Tom Pack said he doesn’t want county money to be used on (private road water continued on page 6)

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Sunny View man after receiving information that he was in possession of an illegal liquor steel used to manufacture moonshine, as well as discovering marijuana plants growing on the property. Joshua Ruff, 25, of 1536 Owl Hollow Road, Mill Spring in the Sunny View community, was arrested and charged with felony manufacturing marijuana, felony maintaining a dwelling for a schedule VI controlled substance, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacturing non-tax paid liquor and possession of non-tax paid liquor, according to sheriff reports. Officers located a liquor steel and non-tax paid liquor on Ruff’s property as well as marijuana plants, according to the sheriff’s office. The steel, liquor and marijuana plants were confiscated and

private roads or private subdivisions, but if those residents want to pay to receive water the county would extend the line. “We’re not stopping anybody,” said Pack. “What we’re saying is we’re not going to do the 60/40 split on private roads or subdivisions on private roads.” The county’s current water policy, adopted in 2009, allows the county to extend its waterlines from the Broad River Water Authority’s line that runs through Green Creek to the Inman Campobello Water District (ICWD). The water policy currently says if funding is available, and the extension is feasible to the county, Polk County will pay for 60 percent of the costs of the extension and homeowners or the subdivision will pay the remaining 40 percent, plus tap fees. In August, commissioners directed Berg to draft changes to the water policy. Berg presented ideas to the board Sept. 9 but recommended the county form a committee consisting of herself, county engineer Dave Odom, interim manager Pittman and county finance director Sandra Hughes to work on changes to the policy. Berg also reviewed other water providers’ policies for extending waterlines and suggested Polk take requests for waterline extensions and rate them on a point system to determine which ones to do on what timeline. Pack said he appreciates Berg’s work but what she presented was not what he expected. Commissioner Ted Owens agreed the plans she returned with didn’t accomplish the commissioner’s goals. “A water authority is what (Berg is) talking about,” said Owens. “The idea was to take the policy now and be sure we don’t (pay to) run lines into private roads and into private developments.” Owens said he keeps using the Red Fox development as an example, and said it would cost the county a fortune if that development wanted water service from the county under the current policy. Berg asked commissioners if, hypothetically, 80 percent of Red Fox said they wanted water and

Friday, September 13, 2013

the residents were willing to pay the costs, would the county run the water. Pack said he doesn’t have a problem with that as long as it doesn’t cost the county any money. “I don’t mind if it’s on a public road,” Pack said. “We don’t need to be spending county money on private roads and private subdivisions.” Owens said the policy currently allows the county to pick and choose who gets extensions for free or with a participation fee and that’s not good. “Pack and I argued a long time with a different board if you’re going to charge one, you’ve got to charge all,” said Owens. “The way you read this policy … it leaves it wide open.” Resident Renée McDermott said discriminating between homeowners who happen to live along privately-maintained roads as compared to those living along statemaintained roads makes no sense. “What would be the reason for making any distinction,” McDermott asked. “I can’t think of any. Polk County does not maintain either public or private roads.” McDermott said people along public and private roads pay the same taxes, and, under the current water policy, pay the same amounts to have waterlines connected. “If the county were to limit waterlines only to public roads, it would drastically limit the number of customers available to the Polk County water system,” said McDermott. “It would rule out what are most likely the most efficient and financially feasible areas in which to extend waterlines: subdivisions, in which road frontages are typically less than they are for properties outside of subdivisions. That would be detrimental to the county’s policy of trying to get at least 1,000 customers to be able to maintain a water treatment plant.” Before the vote, Gasperson tried to amend Pack’s motion to direct Pittman and Odom to meet with ICWD on how it deals with the private/public road situation since ICWD maintains Polk’s water system, but Pack did not agree to amend his motion.

• Farm Tour (continued from page 1)

County Farm Tour. A ticket buys entry to diverse experiences, from learning the milking processes at the multigenerational Harmon Dairy to seeing award-winning goats at Sunrise Farm. The self-driving tour can be tailored to individual interests, Weiner said, and every penny of the car passes will go to the 12 participating farms, dairies and wineries. “Families with children really will enjoy the tour,” Weiner said. “Kids often have no idea where their food comes from, and many of us take for granted the great food that’s right outside our back door. It’s important to know and show the difference between fresh food and fast food.” Backyard gardeners can learn new skills, and fresh local foods will be available on the tour. Sandy Plains Farm offers the only pastured meat rabbits in the

county. The tour also features the 7-acre farm at Polk County High School, the only state-accredited, working high school farm and a model for North Carolina.

Heritage birds, including chickens and turkeys, will be a feature at Restoration Farm, owned by Dawn Jordan. “A lot of people want to know about practices of farming and see what we do first-hand. People want to know what they can do to provide for their families. I share things they can do as homesteading practice, even if they live in the city or on a small acreage,” said Jordan. “There’s so much anyone can do, like vertical farming, raised beds, pots, or composting, even in very small spaces. I love to see people turn the grassy areas of yards into productive gardens.” For folks interested in adult beverages, the tour offers an opportunity to deepen knowledge of the local vineyards. The tickets for this farm tour also will be good for the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project Tour the next day, so one ticket could allow tastings and tours at five area wineries along with the farms and dairies. The Polk County Tour is offered from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, and the ASAP tour of 31 additional farms begins at 1 p.m. Saturday and ends on Sunday. Anyone on motorcycle or

bicycle may have a discounted ticket. Tickets are available at www. polkcountyfarms.org, at the Mill Spring Farm Store at the Agricultural Center, and at the Columbus Farmers Market. “It’s really important to be aware of how lucky we are to live with such diversity and abundance,” Weiner said. “I have traveled the world, and I am amazed by what we have right here.” Participating venues include Columbus Farmers Market, Green Creek Winery, Harmon Dairy, Maple Creek Farm, Mill Spring Ag Center, Overmountain Winery, Parker Binns, Polk County High School Farm, Restoration Farm, Sandy Plains Farm, Sunrise Farm and Yielding Branch at Giardini. “I think we all can take a stance on supporting these local farms,” Weiner said. “Making a living is tough, and if we support these farms, more people can afford to live and work here.” To make a great Saturday even better, Slow Foods of the Foothills will host their monthly potluck on the front lawn of the Agricultural Center in Mill Spring from 5:30-7:30 p.m., open to everyone.

beauty and how he looked after some care and food. All of this occurred in a county outside of our district. Snickers was taken from his owner and, after a long drawn out case, the owner was fined $1,000. Now that the case was settled, Snickers had a day, two at the most, to be adopted or he’d be put to sleep. I called Mary Ann, who pleaded with me to help with this matter. “Mary Ann, you’re breaking my heart,” I told her, “Do you have any idea how often I hear of cases like this?” “They’re going to put that beautiful boy down, Lennie.” I could sense the sob deep in her throat. “I saw the photos, Mary Ann and Lord knows I don’t want that to happen but I don’t know if we have time.” “We can try, can’t we Lennie?” Relenting I said, “Yes, sweetheart, we most certainly can try.”

I gave her the number of Richard and Jackie, two fellow church members and dear friends who have fostered animals for me before. “Call them, Mary Ann. Tell them you spoke with me and ask if they could hold him till we figure something out. If they can’t, call me back and we’ll try another avenue.” After we hung up, I began to shake with frustration but mostly for poor Snickers, whose life I prayed we could turn around. The vision of Patches crossed my mind, a dog I was reluctant to take on because I was overwhelmed as I am now. Dear Patches, who has since passed, became the most loving pet and taught me a great lesson. I hit my knees in tears, “Are You doing this to me again Lord? If so please help me, although I suspect you already have your angels on the job.” Snickers was snatched from death and, bless their hearts, Richard and Jackie fostered him with all their other kids. Snicker’s has been

neutered and has received all his tests and shots. I recently met him and believe me, he’s just as beautiful as his photo, and sweet too. I’ve received many heartwarming emails from Jackie telling me how he’s playing and how she thinks he never had a toy before. “He throws them up and plays by himself,” Jackie told me, “and squeaky toys are a special treat Lennie, you can see the look of joy in his eyes.” Snickers is now online, or you could contact any of the folks in this tale if you’re interested.

I think of the countless people who’ve adopted my troubled animals in the past and how often I hear the words of gratitude for that decision. As you all know, I sometimes fret far too deeply for animals I cannot help because of obstacles humans put in my way. Though I pray on it, I suppose I’ll never know God’s plan. I do think that every once in a while when I’m troubled and swamped with cases, He’ll send me a case like Snickers to let me know He’s in control. Thanks for listening.

look at it and wonder who on earth would donate such old junk. That was the one thing, out of all the thrift shop donations, that I almost cried come back. But I didn’t. I let it go, along with my 40th birthday Trek bike, purple hula hoop, fishing poles, piles of clothing, books, rolls of wall paper, nail gun supplies, a turntable, wall clock, chairs, this-and-that. That was the first round; there’ll be more rounds to come: this is a project that could take a year to accomplish, akin to Hercules shoveling out the stables. Poor River dog had a busy morning defending his property from the ‘burglars’ as they took his stuff away. I need less yard, less house, less struggle, less taxes. Maybe I’ll rent a peaceful guest house, live in an art studio or buy that vintage travel trailer I’ve yearned for… or take a trip to Italy if I want. If I had money in the bank or won the lottery, I’d stay put forevermore, for I’ve loved

my old friend. I’d paint her a shade of soft-butter, add a metal shingle roof and more heat, a real art studio in the back. She’s been home for so long, making me feel like I had the world in the palm of my hand; and like that tree, holds pieces of me and memories. She just needs someone who can afford to keep things up, and not sweat over repairs and bills continually: she deserves better, to ensure another 100 years.

How to get paid for being a family caregiver Dear Savvy Senior, I have been taking care of my elderly mother for nearly three years and it’s taking a huge toll on my finances. Are there any resources you know about that can help family caregivers get paid? - Financially exhausted Dear Exhausted, To get paid as a family caregiver, there are various government programs, tax breaks and family payment options that may be able to help you, depending on your mom’s financial situation. Here’s where to look for help. State aid If your mom is low-income and eligible for Medicaid, you may be able to get paid a small amount by the state. In 15 states, Medicaid offers a Cash & Counseling program (see cashandcounseling.org) that provides an allowance that can be used for various services, including paying family members for care. Many other states have similar programs for low-income seniors, even if the person receiving care doesn’t quite qualify for Medicaid. To find out about these options contact your local Medicaid office. Veterans aid In some communities across the U.S., veterans who are at risk of nursing home placement can enroll in the Veteran-Directed Home and Community Based Services program, that allows veterans to manage their own care, including hiring and paying their own caregivers. Also available to wartime veterans and their spouses, is a benefit called Aid and Attendance that helps pay for in-home care, as well as assisted living and nursing home care. This benefit can also be used to pay family caregivers. To be eligible your mom must need assistance with daily living activities like bathing, dressing or going to the bathroom. And, her

income must be under $13,362 as a surviving spouse – minus medical and long-term care expenses. If your mom is a single veteran, her income must be below $20,795 to be eligible. Her assets must also be less than $80,000 excluding her home and car. To learn more see va.gov/ geriatrics, or contact your regional VA office, or your local veterans service organization. For contact information, call 800827-1000. Tax breaks Uncle Sam may also be able to help if you pay at least half of your mom’s yearly expenses, and her annual income was below $3,900 in 2013 (not counting Social Security). If so, you can claim her as a dependent on your taxes, and reduce your taxable income by $3,900. See IRS Publication 501 (www.irs.gov/pub/ irs-pdf/p501.pdf) or call the IRS help-line at 800-829-1040 for information. If you can’t claim your mom as a dependent, you may still be able to get a tax break if you’re paying at least half her living expenses including her medical and long-term care costs, and they exceed 10 percent (or 7.5 percent if you’re 65 or over) of your adjusted gross income. You can include your own medical expenses in calculating the total. See the IRS publication 502 (www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p502. pdf) for details. Family payments If your mom doesn’t financially qualify for the government aid or the tax breaks, can she afford to pay you herself or do you have any siblings that would be willing to chip in? After all, if your mom had to pay for home care services, the costs would be anywhere between $12 and $25 per hour. If she agrees to pay you, it’s

Tryon Little Theater’s space morphs once again Sept. 26 Ah yes . . . years ago it was an auto parts store. For a number of years it’s been the home of the Tryon Little Theater Workshop – a versatile black box theatre that can change its appearance greatly from production to production. Now for TLT’s season-opening “My Way – a Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra,” to play Sept. 26 – Oct. 6, it has turned into a cabaret complete with big city skyline, baby grand piano, drums, bass, singer/actors in posh clothing, dancing and even a working bar to set the tone as the audience

enters. And heading it all up is Ben Chumley, a professional musician and actor with extensive national and international performance credits. During early rehearsals, his piano sat on the Workshop floor; now it has been lifted to the top of the multi-level stage, where Chumley is joined by Seth Davis on drums and Josh Tennant on bass. Being both director and musical director, Chumley is a busy man – one minute at the piano, the next darting over to his actors to

rework a bit of choreography, then checking his notes on the light plot to be sure he has a special light coming down just where he has an actor placed for a moving Sinatra ballad. Then back to the piano to oversee the three-part harmony on the next number. Early on, the performers Debbie Craig-Archer, Katie Cilluffo, Terry Neal and Josh Moffitt – grab black top hats and launch into “New York, New York,” complete with choreography that even picks up some Rockette synchronized kicks. Then they switch to a

ballad, then an upbeat number. All with some favorite Sinatra quotes and stories thrown in among the decades of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ music. Let’s put it this way: Francis Albert Sinatra would love it. The TLT box office is open at the Workshop, 516 South Trade Street, Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.1 p.m., and Tuesdays and Thursdays 4-7 p.m. For information and tickets, call 828-859-2466. Ask about VIP tables available to only 16 lucky couples. – article submitted by Connie Clark

will also help avoid potential problems should your mom ever need to apply for Medicaid for nursing home care. Another payment option to consider is for your mom to adjust her will, so you receive a larger portion of her estate for providing

her care. But to avoid conflict, be sure all family members are aware and in agreement. Also, check to see if your mom has any long-term care insurance that covers in-home care. If she does, in some cases those benefits may be used to pay you.

Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Wolverines riding on momentum from season’s first win by Mark Schmerling

Polk County High School football coach Bruce Ollis feels last week’s big win at Landrum could provide momentum for this Friday, Sept. 20 game against East Henderson, and next Friday’s contest against Madison. Both those games are at home, and begin at 7:30 p.m. At nearly full strength, the Wolverines (1-3 overall) have running back Donte Posten to throw at East Henderson. Posten was back in the lineup last week, carrying the ball for 116 yards against Landrum.

They also have Jamal Tanner and J.C. Suddeth, both of whom had been injured earlier. East Henderson will not be an easy opponent, noted Ollis. “They pose some problems, because they’re so big up front on both sides of the ball.” Ollis also noted that the Eagles have speed in the backfield, and “run the ball right at you.” So far this season, defending against the run has sometimes been a challenge for the Wolverines, whose overall tackling has seemed to improve.

“We’ve got our work cut out for us,” acknowledged Ollis. The Eagles can be vulnerable to both the pass and the run, noted Ollis. “We’re always going to throw the ball some,” he said. But, he added, “To be a successful team we’ve got to run the ball better.” One reason Ollis is glad to have Posten back on the field is that “he’s a great between-the-tacklers runner.” Tanner was also back on the field last week against Landrum, where he enjoyed a productive

game, including a catch for a touchdown. Suddeth’s left hand is still in a cast, but that hand is improving. It didn’t stop the tough senior from contributing to tackles last week. “We’re finally healthy,” said Ollis. This will be the Wolverines’ last non-conference game of the season. “It will be the most important game they (the Wolverines) have ever played,” added Ollis, “because it’s their next game.”

Polk tennis in conference chase after topping E. Henderson by Mark Schmerling

With a 6-3 win Tuesday, Sept. 17 over East Henderson on the Wolverines’ newly-renovated courts, Polk County’s tennis team traveled to Hendersonville yesterday, to play their only real rival for a conference championship. On Tuesday, singles victories by five of their six players, offset two losses in three doubles matches.

Coach Richard Davis No. 1 player, Alivia Livesay, gained momentum in a 10-5 win. Jamie Greene added a 10-6 win in the number two slot, while number three Ali Halbkat also won, 10-6. Davis’ fourth player, MacKenzie McCool crushed her opponent, 10-2. At number five, Kim Russell lost, 10-8, but Adrianna Tally picked her up with a businesslike 10-0 win.

Doubles competition could have been better for the Wolverines. The duo of Livesay and Greene fell, 8-2, playing with what Davis labeled “lack of focus” after playing so well in their respective singles matches. Halbkat and McCool combined for an 8-2 win, but the combination of Shyanne Dennison and Makenna Devere lost,

8-6. Davis noted that Hendersonville has been the conference champion, and might continue as such, but didn’t give up on his players before yesterday’s match. He said that if the Wolverines won, or the match was close, they might be able to overtake the Hendersonville team, which visits Polk on Oct. 8, in the regular-season finale.

Unitarians to meet Sept. 22 Too much literary stuff The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176 N on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 10:30 a.m. The speaker will be consulting minister Sally Beth Shore. Her topic will be “The Unitarian Universalist Water Communion.” “It starts with a drop, Then a trickle... A burble, a rush of water, bubbling toward its destination; And finally the wide, endless sea. All rivers run to the sea….” –Kayle Rice This Sunday the organization will celebrate the Unitarian Universalist water communion. If possible, bring a small bottle or other container of water with you from a source that is meaningful to you. It could be something you collect from a local stream or lake, or simply from your home tap; if you have a story about why this water is special to you, bring that too. The water will be

mingled, and kept for later use in services as a symbol of our mingled contributions to this community.” Shore is a native of North Carolina, and currently resides in the Blue Ridge Mountains of that state. Her career has included volunteering with the US Peace Corps, working as an environmental geologist, nonprofit director and college environmental science instructor. Shore earned her Master of Divinity degree from Meadville Lombard Theological School in May of 2012, and was ordained by the UU Congregation of Asheville. She lives in Asheville with her husband and three teenage children. Come early to participate in fellowship and refreshments.

After several years of quarterly Literary Open Stage events at the Upstairs Artspace, it has become apparent there is too much “stuff” in the community. Literary “stuff” that is. There is so much of it that Open Stage participants demanded more frequent opportunities to rid themselves of it. So starting this month, on Sept. 20, the literary event will occur bimonthly to relieve the pressure created by all of this verbiage. The next opportunity will be Nov. 8 in case you miss September’s event. The September date is a change from the 13th because of a very cool event involving a bunch of green Xs. It was inadvisable to have these two events on the same weekend because they were both so cool. Tryon just doesn’t have the capacity to handle such a deep freeze. Come listen, read or both Fri-

Broadway’s Next H!t Musical Opens in Tryon The Tryon Fine Arts Center 2013-2014 Main Stage Season, sponsored by Millard and Company, will open on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. with New York’s improv comedy Broadway’s Next H!t Musical. There will be an opening night party before the show in the lobby at TFAC for ticket holders. Light hors d’oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available. The New York Times calls Broadway’s Next H!T Musical “Hilarious!” Time Out NY says “At last! A musical of, for, and by the people.” Every song is fresh. Every scene is new. Every night is different. It’s all improvised and it’s all funny. The hysterical Broadway’s Next H!T Musical is the only unscripted theatrical awards show. Master improvisers gather made up, hit song suggestions from the audience and create a spontaneous evening of music, humor and laughter. The audience votes for their favorite song and watches as the cast turns it into a full-blown improvised musical - complete with memorable characters, witty dialogue and plot twists galore. BNHM has been seen recently at Diana Wortham Theater, Tribeca Film Festival and at the New York Musical Theater Festival, among many others. Under the direction of improv veterans Rob Schiffman and Deb Rabbai, TheaterWeek hailed the show as “brilliant” and The New York Post called Broadway’s Next H!t Musical “remarkable.” Don’t miss the next great American musical when it is written in your hometown. Members of the company will offer a 90-minute class in improvisational theaters for actors high school aged and up. The number of participants in this class is limited and those interested are asked to register in advance. Tryon Fine Arts Center is a
