Holland promises ‘a clean election process’ in 2014

By Jonathan Austin Yancey County News

The chairman of the Yancey County Board of Elections promised county commissioners that the county will see “a clean election process” this year. Marvin Holland, a former commissioner himself, spoke to the county commission last week about increased expenses and changes in voting law. He also noted that the board of elections has worked hard to eliminate questionable voter registrations from the rolls.

That effort began in 2012 after this newspaper reported that more than 10 percent of the people registered to vote in Yancey County at that time were apparently either deceased or no longer lived here. This newspaper pointed out that there were more people registered to vote in the county 2012 than people age 18 and over in the 2010 Census, despite data that showed the county population had dropped since the federal census. The state board of elections ordered the county to take steps to confirm each and every voter registration on file. Last Monday Holland told commissioners that

the election board had “made real headway on reducing the number of voters.” He said the county had 15,100 registered voters in 2010 but now the true number was down to about 14,142. Holland said the election board and staff “want good elections in this county. We’re going to govern elections as tight as we can.” Holland reminded commissioners that the county will need to buy many more portable voting machines in the near future. “In the next (budget) cycle we’ll be requesting funding,” he said.

Mother dismayed child was offered birth control By Jonathan Austin Yancey County News

A Yancey County mother and longtime public school teacher says she is as “mad as a momma bear” after she said school health staff offered her 12-year-old daughter access to birth control. Lisa Robinson says she initially thought the creation of a middle school health clinic in the two Yancey middle schools was positive, allowing children to get routine medical care and treatment without parents having to leave work to take the child to the doctor. But “I did not understand the ramification,” she told the members of the Yancey County Board of Commissioners at their monthly commission meeting


last week. Robinson says her child completed a 50 question survey for the school health clinic, and one of the questions asked if the child felt pressured to have sex, she said. The child checked ‘yes’, Robinson said. “These are middle schoolers,” she said; they hear about sex a lot from television, from peers and on the Internet. Soon afterward the health staff called the child in to discuss the survey, and Robinson says her daughter told her that the staff told her that “you can get birth control and your parents don’t need to know.” Robinson, who taught in public schools for more than 18 years, said she was flabbergasted by the suggestion.

“To put that thought in her mind; that she can go behind her parents” if she wants. She says she researched the law behind the creation of the school health clinics and discovered that parents have accepted such wide-ranging actions when they initially sign their child up for clinic care. “I feel our families have been deceived in signing kids up,” she said. “I don’t think any of you who have 12-year-old children or grandchildren would be OK with this.” Robinson said she feels the school system and the health department are pressured to get children signed up for in-school health care in order to qualify for grant programs.

A Yancey County jury convicted John Herbert Pritchard of second-degree murder last Thursday, accepting the prosecutor’s argument that the 2011 death of Jonathan Russell Whitson Jr. was caused by a morphine-based drug that Pritchard had provided. Pritchard was also found guilty of sale and delivery of the drugs, maintaining a dwelling Pritchard for the drugs, and possession with intent to sale the drugs. He had been on probation for drug charges at the time of his murder arrest, and that probation was revoked and he was ordered to serve that time in addition to the current charges. In all, Pritchard was sentenced to 250 months (20.83 years), though he is given See page 8


Climate change is already harming North Carolina By Dr. Robert Bruck and David Rogers The most recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlighted the hard but undeniable reality that the planet has already started to feel tangible and serious impacts of global warming. Unfortunately, here in the United States, popular discussions about the real and potential effects of climate change all too often revert to “well, I feel sorry for the droughts in Africa and the flooding in Bangladesh, but it really doesn’t affect me.” Sadly, those harboring such thoughts are kidding themselves. Indeed, when it comes to the State of North Carolina, such notions could not be further from the truth. A comprehensive report published by experts at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that numerous and significant impacts to North Carolina are already quantifiable. These include: • Increased incidences of severe local and regional drought over the past 20 years. • Regional droughts have severely depleted aquifers throughout North Carolina leading to water rationing, and economic impacts to local industries. • Severe winter storms and localized flooding are more frequent. • Sea levels on North Carolina’s southern coast have risen more than 12 inches since 1950 and the most conservative estimates indicate a two-to-three foot rise in mean sea level by the end of the 21st century. The economic and ecological impacts to the North Carolina coast

are practically unfathomable. • Rising ocean temperatures have caused commercial fisheries to move toward the poles to seek cooler, more nutrient rich water, thus becoming less available to North Carolina’s fishing fleets. • Several species of toxic and invasive marine tropical fish (e.g. lion fish) never before seen in North Carolina waters are now common. These predators are depleting stores of small commercial fish reducing the commercial industry. • Measurable increases in ocean acidity (lower pH) due to the absorption of carbon dioxide from increased atmospheric loading has significantly depleted soluble base cations such as calcium and magnesium (aragonite) thus reducing these vital chemicals used by mollusks and crustaceans (clams, oysters, shrimp) to form their shells and exoskeletons. • Mean winter temperatures in the North Carolina mountains have decreased by more than four degrees Celsius since 1950, thus leading to lower snow packs (and thus, among other things, fewer skiing days) and a measurable impact on mountain flora and fauna. Extremely rare and vulnerable subalpine species are also moving rapidly toward extinction. The Spruce-Fir ecosystem has already retracted to less than 50% of its range since 1950. • The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are making stark predictions regarding the ingress of tropical infectious diseases such as Malaria, Dengue Hemorrhagic

Fever, Yellow fever, Chagas Disease, West Nile Virus, Equine Encephalitis, and La Crosse Encephalitis due to significantly warming temperatures, longer growing seasons and extreme precipitation events, throughout the Southeastern U.S. These examples are not a part of some computer simulation of a possible future global warming scenario; they are happening now. The citizens of North Carolina have a responsibility to themselves and to future generations to initiate an integrated program to reduce and mitigate carbon pollution, including the support of renewable and sustainable energy technologies. Additionally, we need to seriously begin planning an adaptation strategy for a warmer world. We should not and must not wait until catastrophic events become commonplace. We should prepare and take action now. It is a sensible, logical and responsible course of action for all of us.

Thank you, Burnsville, for supporting Barkin Basement The “Barkin’ Basement”, resale store for the Yancey Humane Society, opened with a preChristmas sale on December 14, 2013. At that time, we decided to stay open a couple days a week to take donations. One Monday, Golda Peterson and I were at the store and decided to open the door for a potential shopper looking in the window. We sold a couple items and were thrilled. Since then, we have rapidly progressed to being open six days a week! Monday – Saturday to be exact, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The store has become like a community project for everyone who loves our animals. We are now so busy with donations and sales,

we often don’t always have enough volunteers. Shoppers in the store have helped us when they saw we needed help. Before we price larger donations for resale, we research on the internet. If a shopper feels we have over priced or under priced a piece of furniture or something else, they tell us. We appreciate the suggestions. We have repeat customers who have become friends. One customer even gave us a book on antique glassware to help us with pricing and identification. It’s hard work but it’s really fun! Thanks to all our Burnsville family for making our first

4 months an amazing success. We are always looking for happy, cheerful, volunteers who can give us one day a week. If you would like to become a member of our family of “Barkin’ Basement” volunteers, come on. We’d love to have you. All you have to do is drop by the store, become a Yancey Humane Society member, complete the volunteer form, and tell us when you want to work Again, thank you Burnsville, for helping us get off to such a fantastic start.  Susan Wells, Golda Peterson, Tim Tipton and all the behind-the-scene volunteers at the “Barkin’ Basement”

Congratulations to Mrs. Proffit on her recognition by the State for her volunteer service to help our community.  What an outstanding effort she has demonstrated, and we are all grateful to her! But is economic development really something for volunteers?  This certainly explains a lot about why our growth in the last years is non-existent, while other similar communities continue to grow.  We can complain as much as we want, recession, etc., and every day that we complain, the highway makes it way into other communities with a focus on growing. What our community and leadership need, what we deserve, is an earnest Economic

Development Commission, with a Plan.  Volunteer efforts should augment the community driven leadership, not be the sole pillar.  A portion of our tax dollars should be Invested in Economic Development.  Sure, trying to bring “industry” to the area is a good idea, and must be pursued.  Reality is, visitors to the area drive growth, attracting not just tourist revenue, but also business-people, like me, drawn here for the beauty, staying here because they recognize where we are going.  The problem is, as it looks now, we aren’t going anywhere, and future business is going right down the highway somewhere else.

Is Economic Development voluntary?

I was surprised to hear of Chip Zullinger’s death. I met him when he was Yancey County school superintendent, and I was teaching a session at the high school on Colonial and Early American home arts. He told me of the cabin behind Mountain Heritage High School. It was his dream to see the place as a living history museum, where students could get a feel of what it was like in

the early days of Yancey County. I went to look and felt like I had been dropped back into the early art of the century. Wouldn’t it be a tribute to Chip if the cabin and surrounding area be restored? Students could learn hands on, before the old skills completely die out, how things were done before electricity and computers. A reader

Herbicides add controversy to FBEMC management program By Nicole DelCogliano Special to the Yancey County News In 2010 the French Broad Electric Membership Corporation (Cooperative) decided to add herbicides to its right-of-way vegetation management program. The EMC maintains power cuts for 3,300 miles of overhead lines in Buncombe, Madison, Yancey, Mitchell and Unicoi counties, serving 38,000 customers. A right of way is defined by the North Carolina General Statue as a specific form of easement, given across land, for a singular purpose such as the placement of a utility line (or pipeline, railroad, telephone pole, etc). The right of “eminent domain” is given to electric utilities in General Statute Chapter 40a. When a power pole is going to be erected on a property, the EMC must enter into a right-ofway agreement with the landowner. When the land is transferred, that right of way remains valid and does not need to be transferred over to the new property owner. If new poles were to be erected or moved, a new agreement would need to be entered into. Landowners in many parts of Madison County, the first area to receive herbicide treatment, say they were not adequately informed of the change to herbicide ROW management. According to the EMC, the change was announced in its monthly newsletter, but many landowners say they did not know about it until subcontractors arrived on their property with spray equipment. An older resident of Madison County saw the contractors from her window and rushed out to find out what was going on. She says they had already sprayed around the area where her spring is located. The protection of springs and creeks is one concern of residents, as is the health and survival of honeybee colonies. The EMC entered in an arrangement with organic farmers in Madison County so their power cuts would not be sprayed. They have spoken with some concerned landowners in Yancey County too. If you prefer not to have herbicides on your power cut, you may notify the EMC and get your property listed on their GIS map. However, you must maintain the ROW yourself at your own cost. None of these guidelines or agreements can be viewed or discovered via the EMC website, nor is any formal agreement signed. Signs are not provided by the EMC. In contrast, the Mountain Electric Cooperative in northeast Tennessee and

northwest North Carolina has a “special/ non-chemical treatment” contract option for landowners who do not want to participate with the spray program. The cost for non-standard right-of-way management is put on a members bill prior to right-of-way maintenance. The utility website lists all the specifications of the contracts, and what must be agreed to by the member and the cooperative. It also lists specific right-of-way clearing and reclearing standards, including member notification for physical and chemical management. All of this is detailed on the website and the agreement is formal between the member and EMC. They also provide no spray signs to the members for a nominal fee. The right of counties and municipalities to regulate pesticides (including herbicides) in their area is limited by the state authority that rests with the N.C. Pesticide Board. Last spring, residents in Mitchell County became alarmed when roadsides and power cuts were suddenly brown due to herbicide spraying. When Progress Energy was bought out by Duke Energy, they began an herbicide program, also with little to no notice. David Wheeler of Spruce Pine brought it to the attention of town officials and helped facilitate a public meeting with Duke officials, town officials and citizens in October 2013. He has a petition on Change. org offering specific suggestions for how towns and utilities can work together to provide more transparency on planned spraying, optout options, and a remediation process for violations. Balancing the need to keep rights of way clear while maintaining the rural beauty and health of the landscape is a main focus in the petition. The difficulty for local entities, like towns and counties, to regulate or mitigate potential harmful effects by certain industries and practices is an ongoing debate in North Carolina. The Environmental Review Board is considering recommendations to the state legislature that lifts the restrictions on how local authorities can adopt local environmental ordinances (revision of HB 74). This would allow communities more local authority over how their specific area is impacted. Given the diversity of North Carolina, many feel the “one-size-fits all” approach often does not address local values and needs. The two herbicides in use by French Broad EMC are Polaris and Rodeo. Rodeo contains active ingredient glyphosate, one of the most commonly used chemicals for vegetation control. The Environmental Protection Agency is tasked with “protecting human health and the environment- air, land, water, upon which life depends.” The Federal Insecticide,

Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act gave the authority to the EPA to create regulations for the use of these chemicals. The two used by the EMC are broad-spectrum herbicides, that do not target just one plant. Herbicides are pesticides that target plant’s specific actions, such as inhibiting cell division, photosynthesis, or the production of amino acids. Glyphosate, the most commonly used ingredient, is an amino acid inhibitor. According to the EPA website on herbicides, “impairments are more likely to occur when herbicides are applied together with other pesticides.” The effects of impairment measured, such as toxicity to non-target plants, animals and water, are only measured in the lab for each herbicide used, not when herbicides are used together, which often happens out in the real world. The active ingredient in each pesticide is tested, not its inactive ingredients, which compose 95 percent of the total. These are called “surfactants,” the ingredients that help the intended ingredients stick, penetrate, or aerosolize. These are not tested and “can also be toxic to biota and are not considered when testing active ingredients.” There is emerging evidence that surfactants are adding toxicity. “Surfactants in the herbicide formulations can be more toxic to animals than the active ingredient (Folmar 1979) (who found that) elevated temperature and pH (of soil) increased the toxicity of Roundup (similar to Rodeo) to bluegill and rainbow trout. The higher toxicity was attributed to the surfactant, rather than the active ingredient, glyphosate.” Each active ingredient (a chemical compound) must go somewhere after it is applied. The plant dies and it decomposes in the soil. The herbicides components go into the soil and break down into other compounds, an organic process that happens to whatever is added to soil. What the active and inactives breakdown into is an area of research that is emerging. Often what the active ingredient breaks down into can be more toxic than the original ingredient according to Shea Tuberty, PhD of biology and Aquatic Ecotoxicology Lab at Appalachian State University. “A basic law of physics is that matter can’t be unmade, so what happens to the gylphosate when it goes into the soil? It must break down into something else. That “something” else is often more toxic than the parent material. What each ingredient breaks down into and how it interacts with other compounds (naturally occurring or anthropogenic) can add to increased toxicity. This “change effect” is not investigated by the EPA when considering intended or unintended toxic impacts. Right of way management is allowed by the easement granted to the French Broad EMC, but as one member , Raven Tata, stated, “You can use my land, but not abuse it.” The unknown toxic affects of these approved EPA chemicals are currently being investigated by the EPA themselves.

Sometimes the sought after ‘just appears’ Vacations symbolize two things to me. First, it represents a year’s worth of hard work. Much like the weekend, a vacation gives you the chance at an extended break from the normal stresses in life for a slightly longer period of time. Second, it starts a new beginning. The refreshing period before the next stint of rock-pounding hard labor that is to come. Seldom do I take a full week’s vacation in one complete day-to-day time period. Usually I will use a few days here, another there, trying to capitalize on holidays and weekends to make it seem longer and more frequent. However, a promise from my wife and I forced the full week this time. My oldest son graduates this year. From experience and common knowledge, I realize this means one thing; this will likely be our last successful attempt at a vacation with the complete family. He will be on to other things just like any other child who flees the nest. We always told our kids we would take them to Disney, so if we were to hold our promise, this would have to be the time. We planned to take this trip last year. But issues surfaced, just like with any family. The finances were not quite right. Work required extra time and did not offer an ideal time to leave for an extended period. Of course, there were other excuses as well. This time, we had to make it happen. With my wife and daughter’s birthdays coming up during the school spring break, this was the time. My wife planned the trip including alternate plans in case of rain, snow, or hurricane. This was going to be a good vacation, and it was going to be memorable.

Bill Howard’s


We set up a dinner date on my daughter’s birthday with the cast of Winnie the Pooh, TIgger, Piglet, and Eeyore. She always loved those characters, so we thought it would be ideal. The next day, we planned a day away from Disney. My wife has admired manatees since she was little. Never having seen one in real life, that became our destiny and goal. Yes, a bucket list item would be checked for her. We looked over several websites and decided to try several different avenues of opportunity. Gradually, several of those avenues turned to dead ends. We packed up our days’ worth of stuff and I drove a couple of hours towards the Atlantic side of Florida. There is a national refuge there - not far from Kennedy Space Center - that supports a number of species of wildlife. We began by heading to the information center and took a walk around the boardwalk in the swampy lands. The kids were given a wildlife bingo game to make it more interesting. The information center had a log book of special sightings as recorded by guests. I browsed through a couple of pages making mental notes of alligators, armadillos, and various birds. I also spotted entries for feral hogs, panthers, and even Bigfoot. This could be interesting. Midway through the walk my youngest son heard a strange noise off the path. A few minutes later and the family witnessed their first close encounter with an armadillo. The small tank was not worried at all about our presence. He was just worried about the hole he was digging at the base of a palm tree. Towards the end, we spotted a small

alligator. I pointed out the tiger stripes that flanked his sides as he lay just a few feet from us gathering warmth in the Floridian sun. But no manatee. We traveled another 30 minutes to a manatee lookout point. Overlooking a river, manatees are known to travel there in order to stay in warmer water. We spotted two rolling in the water near the shore, but they were difficult to see and there were many tourists occupying the lone walkway making it hard to get in position to get a good look. Frustration set in, and my wife was ready to leave. I drove down another unmarked path further down the river, but nothing was there either. We did see a boat ramp on the other side of the river with a retaining wall harboring a small loch of water to allow for easier boat entry and return. We drove around to the other side and followed the obvious road towards the ramp. And she saw it. A huge rolling swell of water. A gray mass floating in the middle. Another towards the shore to the right. In all, there were easily 20 or more manatees in the couple acres of still water. My wife and kids took off to one shoreline where there were several within feet of land. Excitement filled the air. Beautiful lumps of gray flesh with large paddle like tails stretching up to eight feet in length. White scars from encounters with boat propellers donned their bodies. They were amazing. My wife had come up close to the creatures she desired to see. On our least expensive day, we all experienced something we would all remember. We witnessed one of our great creatures. We did it together. Bill Howard is a member of North Carolina Bowhunters Association and Pope & Young. He can be reached at billhowardoutdoors@

It is managed by the department and funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture under the 2014 farm bill. “National funding for specialty crop grants has increased to $72.5 million with this farm bill,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “We expect to see an increase in money allocated to North Carolina as well because the state has such a diversity of specialty crops.”

The department will accept grant requests ranging from $20,000 to $200,000 from nonprofit organizations, c o m m o d i t y

associations, state and local government agencies, colleges and universities. Grants are not available for projects that directly benefit or

provide a profit to a single organization, institution or individual. The application deadline is 5 p.m. May 2. Projects involving

the following specialty crops are eligible: fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, culinary herbs and spices, medicinal plants, as well as nursery, floriculture and horticulture

crops. Funding is also available for projects aimed at developing local and regional food systems and improving food access.

• Organic practices - soon to be certified naturally grown • Recent transplants committed to our growing community of “locavores” • Building our county’s local food system • Join our Kickstarter campaign to SUPPORT a local farm!

Health professional defends school clinic

From the front “I feel like we have sold our kids to get grant money.” And as for the opportunity to secretly get birth control, “I don’t think parents know our kids are being told this.” But Lynda Kinnane, health director with Toe River Health District, which oversees the school clinics, said the staff at student health centers and the health department “follow what’s considered

the standard of care in the community” when dealing with patients, whether they be children or adults. “If you don’t address sexual health then you are providing substandard care,” she said. “It’s very appropriate to ask adolescents if they are sexually active or being pressured to have sex. The most effective way to prevent pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases” is to speak

a b o u t t h e m . “ We always strongly encourage a child to communicate with their parents,” and that appears to be what the mother says happened in this situation. Kinnane was quick to agree that “abstinence is absolutely the best way to deal with the risk of pregnancy or disease,” as well as the overall health of the child. “The fact that children are allowed

to consent; that’s just the law,” she said. “If a child goes to your family doctor and says ‘I want birth control pills,’ the family doctor cannot tell the parents” if the child wants privacy. Speaking generally, Kinnane said some children are pressured into having sex, and sometimes the only advocate willing to help protect the child is the nurse or medical professional who asks the right questions.

Baptists to head out for biennial ramp-building mission

On Saturday, April 26, North Carolina Baptist wheelchair ramp building teams will rise before the sun, load pickups with lumber, hammers and saws, and head out to spend the day building wheelchair ramps for those in need in their communities. Rampin’ Up! is a biennial event jointly sponsored by North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry (NCBAM) and North Carolina Baptist Men. The outreach is held in conjunction with NC Operation Inasmuch – a one-day mission opportunity blitz across North Carolina. Ramp-building teams will be at work in every county. Call 1.877.506.2226 to learn where ramps are scheduled to be built in your area as well as information about the recipients. The joy and camaraderie of Baptists building ramps for a neighbor in need. Locally, West Burnsville Baptist Church is planning a ramp building event. In 2012, the Rampin’ Up! event brought new levels of freedom and improved quality of life to more than 300 aging adults in North Carolina. Dr. Sandy Gregory, director of NCBAM, explains the reason for the event, “Baptists build wheelchair ramps every weekend. This biennial event brings to light their ministry and increases awareness of the fact that many aging adults are trapped inside their homes every day with only a few steps preventing them from connecting with their communities and enjoying a higher quality of life.” In 2012, 85-year-old Lorene Clodfelter of Davidson County was recovering from kneereplacement surgery when she fell from her front steps. This injury set back her recovery and confined her to four walls. North Carolina Baptists joined together to build a wheelchair

ramp for Lorene—providing their labor of love at no cost. “This ramp is the best thing that ever happened to me. I was amazed; they came one Saturday morning and after about five hours it

was built!  I hope others who need a ramp can get one.” North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry connects the aging with resources to meet needs and coordinates practical ministries.

Wall Street Journal completely missed the boat T h e Wa l l Street Journal says there’s no difference between a child whose primary interest is reading and a child who uses social media obsessively. In WSJ’s March 22-23 “Mind and Matter” column, Alison Gopnik recounts, in fable form, her childhood obsession with “The Device,” which turns out to be books. She then claims to know of research supporting the notion that reading books “hijacks” large portions of a child’s brain, portions “that had originally been designed for other purposes.” I keep up on research of this sort, and while I can’t claim to have seen it all, I’ve not heard of any that compels such a conclusion. The studies I’m familiar with all support the view that the human brain is ideally suited to learning to read. If symbol-based print media (i.e. books) are presented to a child at the proper time and in the proper fashion, the brain engages naturally a n d e f f e c t i v e l y. Learning to read does not “hijack” areas of the brain designed for “other purposes” (that Gopnick, most conveniently, never identifies). In effect, she describes the




brain as a zero-sum o p e ra tin g s y s tem in which learning one skill displaces the ability to learn something else. That mig h t d e s c rib e a mouse brain, but it does not come close to describing the amazing learning capacity of a human’s. To b o l s t e r h e r thesis, Gopnick cites danah boyd (boyd does not capitalize her name) of New York University and Microsoft Research. Obviously, boyd is not impartial. She works for a company that is heavily invested in new technologies, and it’s clear from her Wikipedia biography that she thinks social media are way cool. How did she come to her conclusions? By hanging out with teens and interviewing them. In other words, to find out how social media are affecting teens, she gets social with teens. To be clear, this is not science. Gopnick begins her column by asking “How does technology re-shape

our children’s minds and brains?” but never gets around t o a n s we r i n g t h e question. She delves no further into the subject than to r e f e r e n c e b o y d ’s social work and conclusion to the e ff e c t t h a t w h i l e it requires new considerations, the new social media simply enable teens to do what they have always done - form communities, flirt, gossip, and rebel. “The kids are all right,” she concludes, quoting the rock band The Who. No, they aren’t. The best research into the effect of digital technologies on the developing brain has been done by psychologist Jane Healy, author of Endangered Minds and Failure to Connect. Healy has found that screen-based devices compromise the integrity of the developing brain, disconnecting areas that support important functions such as sequential

problem-solving, attention span, and verbal reasoning all of which are strengthened by reading. Healy is everything Gopnik and boyd are not. First, she has scientific credentials. Second, she is impartial. Third, her conclusions support common sense. Speaking of the latter, all one has to do to assess the impact of what I prefer to call anti-social media on teens is watch them stand around in groups, texting rather than conversing. Or talk to a teen who keeps looking at her cell phone during the “conversation,” during which she demonstrates her

mastery of two- and three-word sentences. Speaking as a subscriber, the Wall Street Journal really dropped the ball on

this one…like … totally. Contact family psychologist John Rosemond at www.

Week of 4/28/14 - 5/4/14

Enjoy ‘Harvey’ at the playhouse Parkway Playhouse is presenting Burnsville Little Theater’s production of the Pulitzer prizew i n n i n g c o m e d y, Harvey, on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday, April 27 at 3:30 p.m. “Harvey is the funniest play I’ve ever seen and the cast is marvelous,” said director, Barry Kelly, “No one should miss the opportunity to see this play.” The play centers on mild mannered Elwood P. Dowd, his invisible friend, a 6 foot rabbit named Harvey, and Elwood’s society conscious sister, Veta. When Elwood insists

on introducing the invisible rabbit to everyone he meets, Veta tries to have Elwood committed to the local sanitarium, but the staff commits her instead. Once the doctors learn their mistake, the hunt is on for Elwood and Harvey, and the laughs grow louder and louder. Harvey had one of the longest runs of any

comedy on Broadway. S p r u c e P i n e ’s Willie Walkingstick plays Elwood and Patti Smith of Burnsville plays Veta. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and can be purchased at the Parkway Playhouse website, at the box office, and at various businesses in Burnsville.

State considers limits to where dogs can be used in hunting

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission held a public hearing on April 22 at its headquarters in Raleigh to accept public comments on a proposed temporary rule change authorizing the Commission to establish still hunting zones on game lands. Under the proposed rule, the use of dogs for taking deer and bear will be prohibited on portions of game land posted as “Still Hunting Zone.” This new game land designation will provide an additional mechanism for addressing trespass and safety Board of Elections Chairman Marvin Holland and elections director Mary concerns of adjacent private Beth Tipton speak to county commissioners last week about the coming landowners.

If approved, the proposed temporary rule change will take effect July 1, 2014, enabling the Commission to schedule public meetings about establishing potential Still Hunting Zones in respective game lands. The temporary rule will remain effective for up to 270 days, during which time the Commission will pursue an identical permanent rule. Comments also may be submitted between April 16 and May 9 to regulations@ncwildlife. org or Kate Pipkin, 1722 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, N.C. 27699-1722.

primary and general elections.

Commission hears about election changes From the front He said the cost of mailing absentee ballots has dramatically increased because the size of the letters is larger. He said the cost of mailing ballots has doubled. Holland and elections director Mary Beth Tipton told commissioners that registration is no longer allowed at one-stop voting, and that in the coming general election straight-party voting has been completely eliminated. They said that votes cast out of precinct will no longer be counted.

In other business commissioners received a report on the state of mental health services in the county and region. They heard from Shelly Forman, Senior Director of Planning and Public Affairs with the Smoky Mountain Center. “We’re trying to create some stability in the system,” she told commissioners. Commissioner Randy Ollis, a paramedic, told her that changes to the mobile crisis management team are “not working” and that improvements are needed for first responders and law enforcement.

Y&M gets another big DOT job

One of Burnsville’s largest employers has been tapped to create an unusual traffic interchange near the Asheville Regional Airport. Young & McQueen Grading Co. was awarded the $8.8 million project by the Department of Transportation, and work is expected to begin in May. The contract is to build new exit ramps and reroute Airport Road traffic to create what is called a “diverging diamond” interchange. The concept allows for modernization in otherwise crowded interchanges, and involves vehicles to actually

driving on the left side of the road – as opposed to the regular American style of driving on the right, as they approach the bridge across Interstate 26 at the airport exit. DOT says Airport Road, which is N.C. 280, averaged 32,000 cars a day northeast of the interchange and 26,000 to the southwest. The job is expected to take about two years, DOT officials said. Young & McQueen is the company working to widen U.S. 19E through Burnsville.

Celebrating Kindergarten The eighth Annual Kindergarten Registration Kick-Off Event at the Town Center was a success! This event was sponsored by Yancey County Safe and Drug Free Schools and the Burnsville Police Department. This event brought out 52 upcoming kindergarteners and their families. The rising kindergarteners enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon touring a school bus, fire truck and police car. They also enjoyed face painting, learning centers, art activities, fingerprinting, getting their picture taken in a MHHS cap and gown as class of 2027, and fun activities with Yancey County Schools PE staff.

Buster the Bus and Letterland Characters were on hand to talk and work with the children as well. Yancey County Schools would like to give a special thank you to the Town of Burnsville, Burnsville Police Department, Burnsville Fire Department, Yancey County Sheriff ’s Office, Ingles, Something Special Gift Shop, Flowers by Vance, Chad Fox, MHHS Cheerleaders, MHHS Child Care Class, Yancey County Headstart, MHHS Student Volunteers and Yancey County Schools staff for all their help and continued support. A special thanks to all the parents for coming out and supporting their upcoming kindergartener.

Advertisements Of Tax Liens on Real Property

LEGAL NOTICE North Carolina Yancey County Advertisements of Tax Liens on Real Property Under and by the virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 105-369 of the North Carolina General Statute and pursuant to an order of the Board of Commissioners of Yancey County, I am hereby Advertising Tax Liens on the Real Estate described below. The Advertised amounts include the 2013 taxes due, interest, and advertising cost. The omission of interest and cost from the amount advertised will not constitute a waiver of the Taxing Unit’s claim for those items. The Real Estate that is subject to the lien, the name of the persons to whom the property is listed for taxes, and the principal amount of the taxes are set out below. If the taxes remain unpaid, the lien will be foreclosed by the Taxing Unit and the property sold to satisfy the Taxing Unit’s claim for taxes. This is the 17th day of April, 2014.
