Fire Ban & Water Conservation PSA – Maggie Valley, NC

From the Town of Maggie Valley:

A reminder that the Haywood County Fire Ban is in effect and is being enforced. There are to be no open flames outdoors; not even a candle on a picnic table.

The lack of water continues to get worse. To follow is an excerpt from the 11/14/16 Board of Aldermen Meeting.

4) Mandatory Water Conservation Update: Neil Carpenter, Maggie Valley Sanitary District
The Maggie Valley Sanitary District have made great efforts since the volunteer water conservation mandate was issued. The District collects water from Campbell Creek and Jonathan Creek. The District has only pulled water from Jonathan Creek since August 2016 due to the low water volume in Campbell Creek. The District has never seen drought conditions like this before. The longest the District has ever not pulled water from Campbell Creek is twenty (20) days.

The District has constructed a pump station to connect to provide water from Waynesville if needed. The problem is the water conservation efforts are county-wide. The Town of Waynesville’s water reservoir is down five (5) feet. If the reservoir reaches six (6) feet then the Town of Waynesville will face mandatory water restrictions.

If Haywood County does not receive relief and get rain, Maggie Valley will be on mandatory water conservations and the District will limit water access if needed. The next step will be water restrictions.

Cataloochee Ski Resort is limited on the amount of water they have in reserves to make snow. Cataloochee Ski Resort is not on District water. District Manager Carpenter talked with the owner of Tony’s Tube World about the water conservation efforts and Mr. Waddell agree to assist in the water conservation efforts and will not open Tony’s Tube World until the water situation improves.
Alderman Banks addressed District Manager Carpenter about the Maggie Valley Sanitary District (MVSD) not having an emergency number to report water leaks. Alderman Banks and a fellow neighbor in the Horseshoe Cove Development tried unsuccessfully to contact the Sanitary District to report a water leak on Creekside Drive. Manager Clark happened to drive through the area and was able to report the leak due to his contact numbers that are not available to the public. Alderman Banks had contacted Public Works Director Mike Mehaffey to report the leak so that he could make contract with someone at the MVSD. The District needs to address this issue immediately.

District Manager Carpenter will address the issue first thing in the morning. The MVSD does have someone on duty at the water department 24/7.

Alderman Eveland added that now that it is November and the tourist season is over and the summer residents have left the water consumption should slow considerable.

The MVSD treated 700,000 gallons of water, which is lowest amount of water treated in twelve (12) years.

Alderman Eveland, owner of the largest motel in Maggie Valley, questioned if motels would be going on restricted water use. Alderman Eveland went on to question providing water to Elevated Distillery when the business is ready to open.

No one knows what the future is and what Haywood County residents and business owners will be mandated to do before this drought is over and the water sources are replenished. The Distillery will not be opening until December or later.

Please conserve water and avoid all outdoor flames.

Dinner with a Doc – “Rotator Cuff Tears & Repairs”

Dinner with a Doc – “Rotator Cuff Tears and Repairs”
Presented by Dr. Benjamin Debelak (Orthopedic Surgeon)

unnamedDr. Benjamin Debelak, an orthopedic surgeon with Western Carolina Orthopaedic Specialists, will be presenting the Dinner with a Doc seminar “Rotator Cuff Tears and Repairs” on Thursday August 18th, 2016 at 6 p.m. at the Haywood Regional Medical Center – Café. Dr. Debelak will speak while patrons enjoy a healthy meal. Afterward, he will circulate to visit with guests and answer questions. To attend this complimentary dinner, reservations are required – please call 800.424.DOCS (3627) to RSVP in advance.

Those who suffer from recurrent shoulder pain may have a rotator cuff tear. The rotator cuff is a large tendon at the upper end of the arm that helps lift and rotate the arm and stabilize the ball of the shoulder within the joint. A rotator cuff tear can result from an acute injury such as a fall, or chronic wear & tear. Typically there is pain in the front of the shoulder that radiates down the side of the arm – present with overhead lifting or sleeping on the affected side. There may also be pain with routine activities such as combing one’s hair or reaching behind one’s back.

A tear can extend or get larger over time, so do see your orthopedic physician. Diagnosis may include an MRI. There are non-surgical and surgical options for treatment. Non-surgical options include medication, steroid injections and physical therapy. Surgical treatment may be arthroscopic or traditional depending on the extent of the repair needed.

Dr. Debelak completed his medical training at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, his Internship and Residency at McLaren-Greater Lansing Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, and a Sports Medicine Fellowship at Hughston Orthopedic Hospital. Dr. Debelak is accepting new patients. Appointments can be made by calling Western Carolina Orthopaedic Specialists at 828.452.4131. The practice is located at 581 Leroy George Drive, Suite 300 in the Outpatient Care Center on the 3rd floor. Western Carolina Orthopaedic Specialists also features Dr. Paul Cutting, Dr. Gerald King and Kelly Klein, PA-C.

As a part of Duke LifePoint Healthcare, Western Carolina Orthopaedic Specialists is supported by Duke University Health System’s world-renowned leadership in clinical excellence and quality care and LifePoint Health’s extensive resources, knowledge and experience in operating community hospitals.
