Election Board issues warning about vote fraud By Jonathan Austin Yancey County News The three members of the Yancey County Board of Elections have issued a written warning about the risk of voter fraud in the ongoing general election. “Once again there are allegations of voter fraud in the county,” the statement signed by the board states. “All citizens should be aware that each and every allegation of voter fraud will first be investigated by this office and our findings forwarded to the State Board of Elections for possible forwarding to the SBI for charges without fail.” “Everyone should be aware that there is an ongoing SBI investigation into alleged vote fraud in the 2010 election, and new allegations of this type will be included in said investigation. Party affiliation, status or position will not preclude this office from seeking charges on anyone committing voter fraud.”

The criminal investigation into the 2010 General Election began before election day that November after the state Board of Election received numerous complaints from Yancey residents alleging misuse of written absentee ballots and improper one-stop voting. Interviewed in early 2011, McCurry told the Yancey County News that technicians seized every mailed in absentee ballot cast in the 2010 General Election. “There is actually a paper trail; the absentee envelopes … the absentee ballots, the one-stop ballots, the absentee requests” were all seized. Regarding the current election, the board wrote: “If any voter is offered money or anything of value or feels intimidated to vote for a particular candidate or political party, please call this office at 828682-3950 and report the incident immediately.” Photo by Jonathan Austin/Yancey County News The statement was signed by A birds-eye view of the widened U.S. 19 on Madison Mountain.

Dream Home Tour a community success

Yancey County’s ongoing support led to the success of The Mayland Community College Foundation’s third annual Yancey County Dream Home Tour. This year’s tour featured six fabulous homes: two in town, two at Chestnut Hills and two at Mountain Air. Burnsville architect, Armin Wessel, designed three of the homes on this year’s tour. The tour requires months of planning as well as the tireless commitment of over 80 volunteers, many of them members of the Yancey County community. The tour highlights the best that Yancey County has to offer: beautiful homes, spectacular fall foliage and the caring support of a community that values

education. Proceeds from the Dream Home Tour benefit projects at Mayland’s Yancey Campus and the Intelligent Choice Scholarship, which is awarded to a top graduating senior from Mountain Heritage High School. Kirsten McCurry received this award for fall 2012. Special thanks belong to Armin and Renee Wessel, Susan Martin, David Mishael and Dr. Barbara Kaszovitz, Mitch and Pam Witters, Tom and Sheila Floyd and Charles and Vickie Worsham for opening their homes for the tour. The Foundation is grateful to the Yancey County Chamber of Commerce and to the Yancey County Transportation Authority for continued assistance; contributions from A

Touch of Cass, Armin Wessel, The Grapevine, Ye Olde Country Store and WKYK/WTOE truly translated this year’s dream of a tour into a successful reality. The tour is the brainchild of Foundation Board member Bill Baker, whose vision for the past three years has beautifully combined his passion for education and his love for Yancey County. Plans are already under way for the 2013 tour, set for Saturday, Oct. 12. Contact the Foundation office for more information. Laura R.

State program offers low-cost teacher certification

College graduates interested in becoming high school science, math and technology teachers can now take a cost-free alternate route to certification that combines intensive, school-based preparation with online learning. Now in its first year, the N.C. STEM Teacher Education Program (NC STEP) is providing hands-on training at four innovative high schools across North Carolina to an initial round of candidates who are being prepared for teaching jobs beginning in the fall of 2013. The addition of four more participating schools next year will open slots to 40 teachers-in-training. The non-traditional teacher education program is administered by North Carolina New Schools and funded by the federal Transitions to Teaching grant program, which supports efforts to recruit and retain highly qualified mid-career professionals and recent college graduates interested in earning a teaching license through an alternative route. NCNS is one of 30 organizations nationwide awarded five-year grants from the U.S. Department of Education to train non-education graduates to teach in high-needs schools. More than half the teaching vacancies in North Carolina high schools are in math and

science classrooms, according to data from the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. The NC STEP program focuses on training teachers in innovative and effective instruction of subjects now considered critical for strong high school preparation – science, technology, engineering and math – STEM in shorthand. Candidates in the 15-month program receive a year of school-based training at an innovative school supported by NCNS, combined with seminars and online coursework through WIDE World, a professional development program of the Harvard Graduate School of Education. “The training that you get is top notch,” said Greg Stolze, an industrial engineer who joined the program after 25 years in manufacturing and distribution fields. “It’s a great opportunity to work alongside a master teacher for an extended period and to receive high-caliber professional development. That’s the best of both worlds. You learn so much.” This program has been selected as a partner in 100Kin10, a national initiative to increase the number of STEM teachers by 100,000 during the next 10 years, and has been approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education as an alternative route to teacher licensure. The teacher training programs are hosted this year at four NCNS-affiliated demonstration high schools: Caldwell Early College in Hudson; Cross Creek Early College in Fayetteville; Hillside New Tech High School in Durham; and the Wayne School of Engineering in Goldsboro. The four additional schools participating next year are Edgecombe Early College High School in Tarboro, Early/Middle College High School at Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, Stanly Early College High School in Albemarle and Vance County Early College High School in Henderson. Candidates are paired with experienced teachers as mentors during the year-long apprenticeships. They spend about 18 hours a week in their school, participating in all dimensions of school life, from classroom instruction to lesson planning. In addition to the 10-month internship, candidates also complete four online courses through WIDE World at Harvard Graduate School of Education and participate in seminars led by North Carolina New Schools. Candidates who complete the internship will then become lateral entry teachers for three years before obtaining a regular teaching license.

The ultimate goal of the program is to prepare 48 teachers a year for STEM-related courses, primarily in NCNS-affiliated schools in districts with the highest rates of underqualified teachers. Candidates for the tuition-free program will be drawn from recent college graduates and mid-career professionals in STEM-related fields. Candidates will complete their internship in a host school nearest to where they live. All tuition, training costs and materials are fully paid, valued at approximately $14,000. In addition, candidates receive a $2,500 stipend, $250 materials supplement for classroom supplies, support and guidance for completing licensure requirements and placement assistance following program completion, and mentor support throughout the 10-month internship. Interested applicants can find additional information and materials online at from North Carolina New Schools. The application deadline is Jan. 15, 2013. Informational webinars describing the NC STEP program, including live question and answer sessions, will be hosted monthly from noon to 1 p.m. on Oct. 26, Nov. 14, Dec. 14 and Jan. 9.

Livestock, poultry, and their products accounted for 23 percent of the total agricultural market. So this list recounts the prices in the last week at regional farm markets.

Yancey Common Times Journal you probably figured out they aren’t very proud of Yancey County. They talked about our community schools being too old, our citizens being too poor, and said that our county was on the decline.

WE JUST DON’T AGREE! Yancey County Democrats are PROUD of our community and its accomplishments. So let’s focus on where Yancey County REALLY stands in 2012.

Yancey County’s high school graduation rate is Higher than the North Carolina state average.

Yancey County’s Students’ scores on the SAT are Higher than the North Carolina state and National averages. Under a Democratic county administration Yancey County has seen its first positive fund balance since 2006, earning the Yancey County Finance Office the North Carolina State Treasurer’s Award for Excellence in Accounting and Financial Management.

Parent on right track dealing with biting boy

By John Rosemond

Q: When my 3-and-one-half year-old son misbehaves, I generally take things away from him and he generally responds well. One lingering problem is that he tends to react physically when he’s mad at a classmate instead of talking it out and letting the teachers intervene. We have all encouraged him to use words when he’s angry, but he doesn’t seem to get it. Today he bit a classmate (the second time in a year this has happened), and got sent home. Once home, I fed him lunch and then confined him for the rest of the day to his bedroom with books and some trains. From now on, I plan on sending him to school every day with a “behavior report card” on which I’ve listed the problems of hitting, not obeying his teachers, not sitting still during circle time, and taking toys away from other kids. I’m going to ask his teachers to give him a mark every time one of the problems occurs. If he misbehaves five times in a school day, then I will confine him to his room when he comes home and put him to bed early. Biting will override the list and get him sent home immediately. Comments? A: First, a “duh” statement: boys are more aggressive than girls. Unfortunately, in most preschool settings these days, boys are being




held to female standards of behavior. This is not to say that aggression in boys ought to be overlooked, but female teachers and mothers are more shocked by it than are males, including most dads. (But then, women are even more shocked when aggressive behavior comes from a girl.) When the perpetrator in question is a 3-yearold boy, there is no apocalyptic significance to the sort of behavior you’re describing. Even occasional biting - which tends to provoke near-hysteria among preschool staff (and mothers of bitten children) - is not pathological at this age and does not predict later adjustment problems. In the previous sentence, however, “occasional” is the operative word. Family psychologist John Rosemond Boys are also more impulsive than girls and answers questions at language is not their natural problem-solving

Reiki – A natural healing alternative The Yancey County News constantly seeks contributors to provide information about health and lifestyle alternatives available in the area. With that in mind, we are happy to begin this occasional column on the benefits and options of Reiki. By Germaine Galjour, CNA, RMPT Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is the ancient Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is not massage, not a religion, not a cult. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words -Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy.” The translation means “spiritually guided life force energy.” People receive Reiki for many different problems, and leave with joy, harmony and a feeling of new hope; but mostly, Reiki needs to be experienced to fully understand it’s powerful healing effects to create better life choices for ourselves, our health, and our happiness. A typical Reiki session takes anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. A recipient sits up or reclines, and remains fully clothed. Manipulation of soft muscular tissue is not required in Reiki. Soft music accompanies a Reiki session. It’s not unusual for the recipient to fall asleep within the first five minutes! Reiki is also offered remotely at a distance for healing those who cannot be present for treatment. Reiki works in harmony with all other forms of conventional medical therapy. It is effective in helping virtually every known illness, with beneficial effects, especially in pain relief and reducing the side effects (chemo,) and the discomforts of pregnancy. Reiki accelerates recovery from surgery and trauma at all levels. Hospitals and wellness institutions are noting that Reiki is shifting the general acceptance of those who would otherwise only seek conservative treatment for “dis-ease.” Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, Cancer Centers of America, Marin General Hospital, Tucson Medical Clinic, Portsmouth Regional

medium. Trying to persuade your son to “use words” when he’s angry is a laudable effort, to be sure, but you’re not likely to see much success with this approach for another year or two … or three. This is another example of women expecting boys to be more like girls. As you’ve discovered, boys respond to concrete consequences. At much earlier ages, girls respond to words and are more successful at using them in social negotiations. Your “Five Strikes, You’re Out!” plan is pretty much along the lines of the approach I generally recommend in situations of this sort. I would only add in 10 minutes of time-out when one of the target misbehaviors occurs. Taking him out of the group for that period of time will give him an opportunity to calm down and “reset.” It will also strengthen the “Don’t!” message. And yes, if he bites, his teachers should remove him from the group, call you, and keep him isolated until you arrive to take him home. In the final analysis, the success of this plan hinges on everyone keeping their cool and cutting him no slack.

Reiki works in harmony with all other forms of conventional medical therapy. It accelerates recovery from surgery and trauma at all levels. Hospitals across the nation are incorporating Reiki in pain relief and reducing the side effects of chemo and the discomforts of pregnancy.

Exploring oddities on a mountain visit Sometimes a hunter will seek a trophy that teases. It will remain elusive, while leaving just enough clues to entice the hunter to continue the pursuit. I call this ‘chasing ghosts.’ Not because it is a ghost mind you, but because I might as well be looking for ghosts, as the chess match between the two of us edges forward to either a checkmate, or a draw. I have one of those games going on now. A large buck that has kept a regular pattern has proven to be elusive. I have found when he hits the stand site, and I have remained determined and patient in the quest. Even if it means going to the stand at 3:30am in order to beat him to the area, I do. I sit, and I wait. Not everything involving the outdoors is hunting or fishing though. Even when participating in those two activities, the communion with nature is the real reward. Sometimes I try desperately to involve as many family members as possible. But there is just so much room in a stand or boat, so I have to think of interesting expeditions that can be shared between us all. Last year I convinced my wife that a camping trip in Pisgah National Forest with the kids and dogs would be fun. Luckily it was. We also made a trip to the zoo last October. My family, with my mother, met with my cousins and my aunts and toured the exhibits. Everyone enjoyed the trip, as well as seeing each other. We reminisced about our trips to the zoo with my grandparents when we were kids. When we left though, I had a surprise up my sleeve. It was the weekend before Halloween, and my family enjoys the paranormal televisions shows. So I figured I would take a detour and visit a site I have heard about since my pre-teen years, but was never able to go to. We headed down a back road out in the middle of nowhere. In the road we spotted a large cross painted in white. I knew we were near. I located a small path and pulled over to

the side of the road. We had found the Devil’s Tramping Ground. What we found there made me uncomfortable so we didn’t hang around long. Inside the mythical circle of barren ground was a small fire. Just outside of it was what used to be a very nice and expensive tent, ripped to shreds. I never found out what happened; I didn’t care to. This year, I decided to knock off another of my bucket list adventures in North Carolina. We ditched the kids and my wife and I found a small cabin (REALLY SMALL!) to stay in over the weekend. The quest: The Brown Mountain Lights. The legend goes that there was a war between neighboring Indian tribes many hundreds of years ago. After the slaughter and bloodshed, the widowed took torches through the valley near Linville and up Brown Mountain in search of their perished loved ones. The United States Geological Society even tried to find explanations for the lights. The common belief was they were reflections from a train that would travel nearby. But during the survey, a great storm came through and washed the train tracks out, yet, the lights again appeared. Other common theories such as swamp gases were also ruled out, in large part because there is no swamp. My goal was to just see the lights. How could there be no explanation if they appear so regularly? So on our second evening, we drove a long and winding path past Linville Falls and headed to the Wiseman’s View. The best time to see the lights is between September and November, according to reports. Talking to locals, they can be seen just about any time, although shortly after a storm and in the fall they are more prevalent. We arrived just before dusk. There was a slight chill in the air. Many people had gathered at the view, and we went beyond a fenced area to sit atop a flat boulder ledge near the main

overlook. At first, the people that were near us would shout and point “there’s one!” I looked at my wife and thought it may truly be a myth as we didn’t see anything. Then, I spotted a red light, dancing down the mountainside. Then another a few hundred yards away. Then another. As the night embraced the area, we saw more and more. Many of the lights seemed to flicker in response to other lights maybe a half of a mile to a mile away. One greenish hued light worked its way up from the river all the way to the side of the cliff where we were. A rational man would say the light was from someone below. Usually I am rational. However, when the light would appear below the tree canopy below and then float above the trees in other spots, rational is no longer a state of mind. Is it ghosts of long ago? Is it reflections? Is it swamp gases or somebody down below in the valley trying to get their own closer look

or even fool all the viewers above? My answer is, I just do not know. I intend on pursuing the answer again. The intrigue grips me. But for now, I have my other ghost to chase. Note: Brown Mountain Lights can be seen about 4 miles from Linville Falls. The lights have supposedly been seen since the 1600s. The Devil’s Tramping Ground is located near Bennett.

Don’t get tripped up by travel promotions

Offers of a free vacation can be hard to resist, but be skeptical of anyone who promises you an all-expenses-paid getaway. In many cases, the trip isn’t really free, or the offer turns out to be next to impossible to redeem. North Carolina consumers have reported getting mailings, phone calls, faxes or emails that claim they’ve won travel prizes such as a free cruise or a pair of airline tickets. You’re then told to attend a travel presentation in person to collect your free gift. The presentation usually includes a highpressure sales pitch to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a travel club membership. You either wind up having to pay fees before you can claim your “free” trip, or the trip is so difficult to redeem that you’re forced to give up on it. Remember: • A trip is not free if you have to pay or buy something to get it. • Not all travel clubs live up to their promises or save you money. Memberships can be difficult to use, with lots of restrictions on travel dates and destinations. • Beware of companies that operate out of a temporary location or that are new to the travel business in your area.

• If you attended a promotion for a travel club and signed up for a membership, you may be able to get your money back. If the sales presentation took place at a hotel or other off-premises location, North Carolina law allows you three days to cancel your contract. If you signed up for a travel membership that didn’t live up to its promises, or if you get a questionable travel promotion, let us know about it.

Plan ahead to eat healthier meals

Medea Galligan MS Nutrition

Let’s be honest, eating healthy these days takes education, planning and a determination to make conscious decisions about what we are and are not going to eat. But what are we to do when we live at work or on the road and are faced with nothing but a slew of fast food restaurants and convenience stores? What are we to do when traveling for vacation or to see relatives? Eating healthy on the go can seem like a daunting task. Believe me, I know. It took me years to figure it out. There are certainly times when hitting up the drive-through seems like the easiest option, like when it’s 2 p.m. and you just got a lunch break, or you are in the middle of nowhere, starving, and you stop to get gas. These situations are not only Oh Too Familiar, but believe it or not, they can be easy to avoid if you’re prepared. Here are six useful tips to help you get through your day and stay true to your goal of eating healthier: Grab a quick, healthy breakfast. There’s no way you’re going to survive the morning, never mind the day, if you don’t start with a good breakfast. It’s tempting to skip the first meal of the day in favor of a few extra minutes of sleep, but rather than starting your day on an empty stomach, you can pack a healthy breakfast the night before and store it in the fridge so all you have to do is grab-and-go. Choose simple foods from two, three or more food groups to get more bang for your breakfast buck. Some quick, healthy, on-the-go options include: • Peanut or almond butter and banana sandwich on whole grain bread. • Half of a whole wheat pita stuffed with chopped hardboiled egg, shredded carrot and diced red and green pepper. • Plastic container filled with Greek yogurt or cottage cheese, berries and other seasonal fruit. • Cooked quinoa tossed with a handful of raw nuts and frozen berries packed into a leakproof container. • Homemade scrambled egg burrito Pack a lunch. Obvious, I know. And as with breakfast, you can pack it the night before. Depending on what your schedule is like this is sometimes easier said than done, but it is more than worth the effort. When you’re running late, you spill your coffee, the dog gets loose – something is bound to go wrong, and making a lunch is usually the first thing to go. By packing your lunch the night before with natural, satisfying whole foods and leftovers from your delicious dinners, you can be sure that you won’t be tempted to hit the tempting vending machines or swing through a drive-through. Stock up on snacks. If you have a work fridge, an office drawer, a locker, or a book bag – fill it up with easy to grab snacks. Here are some delicious whole food snacks that will keep you going throughout the day: • Raw nuts (walnuts, cashews, almonds) • Raw seeds like pumpkin and sunflower • Dried fruit like figs, prunes, raisins and apricots (no sugar or sulfites added) • Homemade trail mix with the above ingredients • Fruit (apples, pears, oranges) • Veggies like carrot sticks, celery and bok

choy stems • Natural whole food bars like Larabars and Cliff Bars, or see my recipes at www. to make your own! Of course, if you have access to a refrigerator then the options are endless – string cheese, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, hummus, and more. Healthy Beverages. Be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day, and drink filtered or bottled water at the first signs of hunger. Most of the time we mistake hunger for thirst. This is especially true if you drink coffee or caffeinated teas or sodas, which act as a diuretic and pull valuable water and nutrients out of your body. A great healthy and portable drink option, besides just bringing filtered water from home in a water bottle or buying bottled water on the road is to add one or two packets of Emergen-C to your water. It gives you immune-boosting vitamin C (1,000 mg per packet) as well as a full array of necessary minerals and electrolytes without all the sugar, artificial sweeteners or colors of expensive sport drinks like Gatorade or bottled juices and teas. You can buy boxes of Emergen-C at Walmart for $7 or $8 for 30 packets, and I suggest keeping one at home, one in your car, and one at work to make sure you always have a delicious and healthy beverage option. They come in many flavors, Super Orange, Strawberry Kiwi, Acai, etc., and each packet contains only 5mg of (natural) fructose as a sweetener. Prepare meals and ingredients over the weekend. It’s much easier to pack lunches during the week if you have ingredients on hand. Check out your local Farmer’s Market for the best prices on fresh foods. So, what are some essentials that make packing meals simple? For salads: • pre-cut/washed vegetables (spinach, matchstick carrots, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, spring mix) • cooked grains (quinoa, rice, wheat berries) • washed and cooked beans for protein (black beans, kidney beans) • sunflower or pumpkin seeds (or any type of nut/seed) • dried cranberries • hummus/salsa/balsamic vinaigrette for dressing (a tiny container to store is great) For wraps: • some of the same from above (tempeh, beans, veggies) • whole wheat wraps (I love La Tortilla factory) or try using lettuce leaves! • Hormone-free cheeses, natural chevre from the Farmer’s Market • Hummus, almond or natural peanut butter • Left-over beef or chicken stir fry with a little sesame oil and tamari Here are some of my favorite wrap ideas. I got creative with these, but you can always keep it simple with just hummus and veggies or apples and peanut butter. • sweet potato, pomegranate, tempeh wrap • eggplant, goat cheese, green pepper wrap • grilled chicken and green apple filled wrap • salmon, arugula and red pepper wrap Buy vegetables in bulk – wash, cut, and fill bags or sealable containers for the entire week. If it’s there, then it’s easier to grab, right? Make eating healthy the easy option. Basically, do everything you can to set yourself up for success. If you don’t already do this or it doesn’t come naturally to you – then just do it until it becomes habit. After a while, the food prep time will just become part of your usual routine. Here are healthy, and delicious, lunch ideas: • nut butter, apple, and cinnamon quesadillas

• salad bowls with chickpeas, sunflower seeds, and homemade dressing • Greek yogurt with fresh fruit and cinnamon • whole wheat wraps with broccoli slaw, matchstick carrots, and hummus (doesn’t get any easier than that) Choose healthy dine-out options. Being on the go means you’re going to end up eating out at some point, especially if you’re on a road trip or have a long drive between destinations. Eating out in a healthy way is not just all about portion size - it’s also about the quality of what you are eating. So don’t be afraid to ask how certain dishes are cooked so you know exactly what you’re getting (roasted versus fried, for example). You can also ask for sauces and dressings on the side, avoid anything fried, and don’t feel compelled to clean your plate. Another tip: as soon as your order arrives, split your dish into two servings to share or eat for a later meal. I hope these tips show you just how possible, with a little planning, that it is to avoid the fast food/convenience store/vending machine traps that can easily sabotage your efforts to improve your diet and your health.
