A Message from the

MAYOR

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• As we enter a new year and a new decade, I’m looking forward to leading the Town of Waxhaw in my new role as Mayor. Having served in both municipal and corporate leadership positions throughout my career, I bring over 40 years of leadership experience to the office of Mayor. My senior positions include Region President, President, and Vice President for top Fortune 500 Real Estate Development and Homebuilding Companies, President of a Regional Real Estate Brokerage Services company, and comprehensive involvement in County and regional Planning Boards. I have also served my neighbors as President of our local homeowner's association. This experience brings a wealth of knowledge of building relationships, developing a clear vision, and exercising strong communication skills to share that vision. Keeping residents involved and engaged in the decision-making process of town leadership is pivotal to my role as Mayor. In 2020, I hope residents will prioritize attending our public meetings, asking questions of town leaders, and providing their input during public comments. My wife, Camine, and I spend a lot of time frequenting the restaurants and destinations in Waxhaw, and have heard many of the concerns residents have for 2020 and beyond. As the father of two grown children, I understand the values of family, safety, and growth, and I aim to create a dynamic and beautiful growing Waxhaw for years to come. I look forward to working together with the Board of Commissioners, town staff, and residents to achieve that vision.

Sincerely Yours,

& GO, SEE DO Pedestrian Bridge Sometimes a bridge is more than just a way to get from Point A to Point B. It can be a landmark like the pedestrian bridge located in the heart of downtown. This town icon was built in 1888 when the railroad company built a rail line to Atlanta. Today, many people, young and old, climb the stairs to the top so they can stand on the wooden planks of the bridge and watch as a train passes under their feet. Downtown Waxhaw

Water Tower This iconic 49,000 stainless-steel structure looms over the downtown area with it’s close proximity to the intersection of NC 75 and NC 16 and the railroad tracks that run through the center of town. It was built in 1940. The tank was the town’s water supply for many years until new ground water tanks were built. This iconic tower was restored in 2013. 116 McDonald Street Waxhaw, NC 28173

R.J. Belk Building Located in the heart of downtown Waxhaw, directly across from the pedestrian bridge, this historic building was home of the Belk Store from 1894 to 1938. The building has served many purposes after the Belk store closed. Currently, the Waxhaw Woman’s Club rents the building for community events, private parties, and special occasions. 200 E.

Jug & Well The large clay urn was originally used at the Rodman-Heath Mill which played a vital role in the town’s economy for many years. The well was originally dug circa 1900 to serve the trains and crews of the Depot and remained in use until the 1920’s. The current well replica, built in 1989, commemorates Waxhaw’s original community well which once stood near this spot.


The Meeting Place Once known as the Waxhaw Police Department, The Meeting Place is a rentable recreation meeting room that accommodates 25. It includes a bathroom, kitchenette area, mounted flat-screen television monitor, tables, and chairs. The Meeting Place is perfect for family gatherings and community meetings. Located next to the David G. Barnes Children's Park

Duncan McDonald House The Duncan McDonald House was built by Waxhaw's first post-master in 1888 and now acts as a characteristic recreation venue. At one time the town’s early switchboard was operated from this house. From senior citizen programming to events welcome center to historical showcase to rentable meeting space, this is a great place to visit! 115 N. McDonald Street Waxhaw, NC 28173

Our mission is to provide healthy, fresh, local food, foster direct relationships with farmers and customers, and to enhance quality of life in our local area by providing a common gathering location.

The original inhabitants of the region were a Native American group known as the Waxhaws (originally called the Wysacky). The tribes involvement in the Yamasee War led to their destruction and the freeing of their land for European settlement. The area was first settled by European-Americans in the mideighteenth century. Most settlers were primarily of Scots-Irish origin. These settlers became subsistence farmers and horses were an integral part of their daily life. The equestrian lifestyle is still part of this area's tradition. This close-knit community is full of many equestrian lovers who have discovered the lands splendor with an abundance of equestrian farms and horse-friendly neighborhoods.

How Schools are Changing to Improve STEAM Learning As STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) learning has grown in prominence in classrooms across the country, so has the role of tools and resources facilitating this approach to learning. Here are five examples of how technology is supporting the integration of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics in classrooms today. • Lessons brought to life: Virtual reality in the classroom has the power to immerse students in STEAM material more fully than ever before, while giving students with engineering proclivities the opportunity to create their own educational content. As the cost of this technology becomes more accessible, a growing number of schools are benefiting. • Visualized math: The ability to visualize mathematical concepts can support students’ grasp of the material. And expanded features on the latest models of graphing calculators give students the ability to easily draw three-dimensional graphs such as planes, cylinders and spheres, and view them from various angles in order to better analyze their shape. Expanded features and improved catalog functions include cross-section options and special zoom functions, enabling students to further examine graphs for deeper analysis. Offering a color LCD with a full textbookstyle display, students can even plot graphs over pictures of real-life scenes. • Art lessons without the mess: New free and inexpensive educational apps give art teachers an opportunity to deliver lessons with-

out the mess. From charcoal drawing to pottery to painting, the digital experience can faithfully replicate the real thing, so that young artists learn all the fine art principles needed to create a masterpiece. • Accelerated music instruction: Research continues to support the vital role that music education plays in STEAM learning. And now, new tools are making it easy for educators to introduce students to a wide scope of tones, rhythms and genres, and offer students an opportunity to learn at a pace that keeps them motivated. For example, a portable keyboard for advanced beginners to intermediate players features a Step-Up Lesson system that displays proper finger placement and notation, allowing users to easily learn songs. • Better presentation: From sines and cosines to a map of the galaxy, no matter what subject is being taught, teachers know it isn’t always easy to maintain the class’s attention. But keeping students engaged is easier today, thanks to the latest generation of projectors, which offer sharper visuals and new educational solutions that help teachers maintain their momentum with modern, streamlined lessons. A series of projectors allow teachers to select a presenter from anywhere in a classroom and project their device onto the screen, as well as control projection remotely using their own smart device anywhere in the classroom. Today’s students are not only deriving the benefits of an integrative STEAM approach to learning, they have some of the coolest new tools to support their education. (StatePoint)

Dentist-Approved Tips for Healthier Smiles

[By StatePoint]

Candy and sweets are fun to eat, but too much can take a toll on dental health. Families can do some damage control with a check-in to make sure everyone’s dental health routine is up to par. For a healthy mouth and smile, the American Dental Association (ADA) offers the following tips and recommendations. Purchase Proven Products. One great way to celebrate National Brush Day is with a new toothbrush. It could be time for a new one, anyway. The ADA suggests replacing toothbrushes every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t clean as well. Soft-bristled brushes also protect your teeth and gums. Talk to your dentist about which types of dental products will be most effective for your family, and also be sure these products carry the ADA Seal of Acceptance. The Seal lets you know they meet strict ADA criteria for safety and effectiveness. “You get a check-up when you go to the dentist. Think of the Seal like a check-up for your dental products,” says Dr. Ruchi Sahota, American Dental Association (ADA) spokesperson. “A team of dental experts evaluate each product to make sure it is safe and effective for you and your family.” 40

Look for the Seal on fluoride toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, water flossers, mouth rinses, chewing gum and other oral hygiene products. Search products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance at MouthHealthy.org/ADASeal. Consistency is Key Brush teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste. Make sure you’re brushing for a full two minutes each time! It can be tempting to let kids skip brushing after a long day or during times when the normal schedule is off (like vacation or a holiday), but keep at it. That’s how you form a healthy lifelong habit. “Your children learn from you, so set a good example. The family that brushes together has even more reason to smile,” says Dr. Sahota. Prevent Decay Tooth decay-causing bacteria linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. Cleaning between your teeth daily with floss or another interdental cleaner helps remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line. Limiting how much sugar you eat and drink also makes cavities less likely. The harmful bacteria in your mouth eat the sugars you consume, and produce acid, which can damage teeth, causing cavities to form or erosion to occur. Great dental habits can help promote healthy smiles. Take time to learn more about dental health and perfect your brushing technique.

Fear Free Animal Hospital Design [ Dr. Susan Bonilla, MS, CVA, CCRP, CACP ] You may have recently heard the term Fear Free from a friend or seen it advertised. Founded in 2016 by Dr. Marty Becker, it comprises a group of different veterinarian professionals and pet experts gathered together for the single purpose of preventing and alleviating fear, anxiety, and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the veterinary professionals and people who care for them. Since its inception, over 30,000 veterinary and pet professionals have committed to becoming Fear Free certified. In 2019, Passionate Paws Animal Hospital proudly joined an elite group of practices to attain the honored distinction of becoming a Fear Free Certified Practice. This certification means that all our doctors and team members on staff, including our groomers, are all individually trained as Fear Free professionals. Being Fear Free certified validates much of what we have already practiced since opening over three years ago. Fear Free certified practices will have successfully implemented Fear Free into all aspects of their business: culture and leadership, client education, staff training, the facility, and most importantly, patient visits. My husband and I built our hospital for pet parents because we are pet parents and so is everyone of our team. We set out to create a unique experience for both pets and pet parents that put your furbaby at the center, promoted and delivered a Fear Free experience, provided integrative pet healthcare, and partnered with you as the primary caregiver in developing customized treatment plans. When we started our design, we knew nothing of the Fear Free program,

we just knew there had to be a better experience for pets and pet parents than the traditional vet visit so many of us have experienced in the past. A visit to the vet should be pleasant and fun, not stressful and fearful. In order to do this we completely reinvented the look, feel, and even smell that has long been associated with a typical animal hospital. But, we didn’t stop at design. We also reexamined our approach to patient care and pet parent service to ensure a calm, pleasant, and fun experience for pet and pet parent alike. At Passionate Paws, we strive to make every patient visit a Fear Free experience as every team member wants your pet to be happy when he or she walks through the door of our animal hospital. Free Free doesn’t mean that your pet will never experience anything uncomfortable at our hospital—he or she may be injured or ill, after all—but it does mean that we make every effort to reduce any fear, anxiety, and stress related to examinations, procedures, and grooming. Here are a few of the ways we help your pet stay comfortable and relaxed from arrival to departure. When you first arrive at our hospital your senses and your pet’s will be greeted with pleasing smells from our aromatherapy diffuser, designed to calm and relieve anxiety. No hospital should smell like an animal hospital, and ours never does. To ease our patients even more, we have designed our waiting area to be species specific, with cats and dogs on opposite sides. Taking it one step further, we built a cat-only exam room (no dogs allowed) to provide an added layer of calmness for our feline friends. For those dogs that are a bit more nervous, we can bring you right away into our side door that leads directly into an exam room. For our anxious cats, we can bring them directly into the cat-only exam room upon arrival. Upon entering the exam room, you and your pet will notice that performing exams on a cold, slick table are a thing of the past. For our dog patients, we provide comfortable bedding on the floor, where our medical team conducts the majority of their examinations and procedures. For our cat patients, we offer a cat tree as well as warm bedding to perform the majority of the examinations and procedures. Each room is equipped with natural pheromone diffusers that emit calming substances into the air that are specific to dogs and cats, and play species-specific music bioacoustically engineered to calm your pet (and maybe even you.) These examples and more await each and everyone of our patients and pet parents at Passionate Paws, providing a very unique one-ofa-kind experience. Our hospital becoming a Fear Free Certified Practice is just the natural progression from what my husband and I envisioned from the start. We are so excited to continue to improve the experience for our existing pets and pet parents and for those that are still to come.

A visit to the vet should be pleasant and fun, not stressful and fearful.

Dr. Susan Bonilla is the owner of the award-winning Passionate Paws Animal Hospital in Waxhaw, offering traditional and complementary treatment options such as acupuncture, chiropractic, and physical therapy. Full-service grooming is also available. You can reach her at 704-256-7576 or e-mail at Hello@PassionatePaws.Vet
