The Jan. 30 edition of "Green Radio Bistro" featured a unique type of energy-efficient lighting that's manufactured in Penrose, N.C. Co-host Dee Eggers, an environmental-studies professor at UNCA, interviewed Greg Sedgwick and Steve McNabb of American Carolina, which manufactures electronic high-intensity-discharge lights that use up to 65 percent less energy than conventional HID lighting.

Armed with a U.S. Department of Energy grant of $420,000 awarded last year through Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Western Carolina University, American Carolina Stamping began working on a prototype of the product six months ago, said Steve McNabb, president of American Carolina Stamping.A dehumidifier heats the water, allowing the consumer to run a dehumidifier and water heater for 30 percent less, saving on utility bills, he said. McNabb said he was pleased with the Energy Department's positive response. "I would say we've got a 90 to 95 percent chance of getting this and our other project going," he said."If this and our plans for energy efficient lights come through, we will probably need to hire an additional 60 to 80 employees within 90 days." American Carolina Stamping employs 14 people, he said. The government contract marks a stark turnaround for McNabb, who has waged a long battle with the Environmental Protection Agency after the EPA's investigation unit raided his plant in January 1999. Officers were acting on tips that the plant was improperly disposing hazardous waste, including a hexane-based solvent, commercially sold as Zep. McNabb won support from local legislators in Congress and in the state General Assembly. McNabb said earlier this month he plans to sue EPA criminal investigators for at least $10 million over the four-year investigation, which turned up no wrongdoing.During the investigation his company could not pursue government contracts, he said, costing him thousands of dollars.He plans to sue the EPA for lost business, attorneys' fees and other damages. McNabb said he felt vindicated by the company's success with federal energy representatives at Tuesday's fair. "This is payback for all that," he said, referring to the EPA investigation. The company has already received blueprints for a new energy efficient electronic ballast that works with all lighting, McNabb said.The lights are programmable so they don't all come on at the same time and are 40 to 50 percent more efficient than standard lights. American Carolina Stamping, which is between U.S. 64 and Old Hendersonville Highway, will be the manufacturing representative for Aurora Lighting of Knoxville, Tenn.The company has already sent engineering prints for the product to the Penrose business, McNabb said, with a production request of one million units per month. McNabb credited the partnership of Western Carolina University and A-B Tech along with his company for Tuesday's success. "We're on a roll," McNabb said.

Steve McNabb is president of American Carolina Stamping in Etowah. (Michael Justus/Times-News)Steve McNabb, whose wife, Jan, owns American Carolina Stamping, this week said he is gathering information to sue members of the Environmental Protection Agency's Criminal Investigation Division for discrimination and retaliation during a more than four-year investigation of the Transylvania County company. McNabb said he plans to sue for $10 to $15 million for lost business, attorneys fees and other damages. "When you're under criminal investigation you can't take government contracts," he said.McNabb contended that the solvent was too expensive to dump and that he reuses it until it evaporates.Zep is only considered a hazardous waste because of its flammability, he said. McNabb said tips came from disgruntled employees and that the investigation was retaliation for insults he lobbed at the initial investigator, an N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources employee. He enlisted the help of federal and state politicians as the investigation continued and garnered media attention including an appearance on the CBS news program 60 Minutes, which looked at alleged abuses by the CID. As is the custom of federal law enforcement groups, the CID refused to talk about the case while it was open or even to confirm whether such an investigation existed. Meanwhile, McNabb uncovered information from DENR pointing to the wire tapping of his phone.In 2000 he brought a conspiracy lawsuit against the CID, but the $6 million complaint was denied because of the federal agents' special immunity. In 2003, 10 months before the expiration of the five-year limit on investigations, the EPA closed the case against McNabb.

Snow Comes, But Sledders Remain Scarce On Hillside Monday, March 1, 2004 -- By Jennifer Uhl-Ford News Editor Kells Hogan remembers snowy days in Transylvania County when crowds of local children gathered with various snow crafts at his property on Walnut Hollow Road."I have a hill that used to be a favorite sledding place," he said."But hardly anybody visits anymore."Nowadays, tracks from sled rails rarely appear through the fallen snow on his hillside, and he provided a simple answer for the vacancy.
