CRUISING THROUGH / INSTEAD OF RETIREMENT Most people plan to travel after their retirement, but Billy Cushman of Eden took it a step further. A retiree from Duke Power, Cushman found a way to keep busy, travel, and get paid for helping others enjoy themselves. He completed his studies at Lucas Travel School of Greensboro in 1998 and started up Cush’s Cruises & Travel in 2000. He thought of opening a business office, but that just wasn’t his style. He likes working Cushman from home, saving on overhead and being available to his clients, day and evenings. Since opening he has worked hard to attain the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) insignia to his name as well as becoming a Sandals certified, Palace certified agent, and received special training in Hawaiian, Caribbean, Las Vegas travel.

From budget to luxury travel, he works to keep the prices on an economical level so that everyone can afford travel. When asked what particular challenges do you face of late, Cushman said passport confusion over the last few years topped the list. “You do not need passports for cruises leaving and returning to the U.S. But passports are required for all international flights to the Caribbean starting May 18, 2010,” he said. A ship will be stationed in Charleston, South Carolina soon, as well as one in Norfolk, Virginia, those who hate to fly can now take a short drive, board a tropical cruise, and enjoy themselves as they never thought they could. Although named Cush’s Cruises & Travel, Billy Cushman handles land travel, air travel, local and worldwide trips. He also specializes in group deals for seniors, honeymooners. If interested in taking that trip you’ve dreamed about for years, contact Billy at 336-635-1947 or 336-613-4911 or email him at cush@triad.rr.com.

CELEBRATE EARTH DAY AT HAW RIVER STATE PARK: RETURNING OUR PARK LANDS TO A NATURAL

Spray Cemetery Two cleanup days were held in March at the old Spray Cemetery on Church Street across from the First Wesleyan Church. We owe much thanks to Boy Scout Troop 553 under the direction of Jim Downs and Joshua Clark and the many other volunteers from the Eden area and elsewhere that came to help. The Cemetery has been neglected for years and many of the old markers cannot even be located due to overgrown weeds and vines. There are about 20 know graves there. The earliest marker located is dated December 1,1881 and is that of Mary Ann Robertson Pollard. The most modern marker found so far is dated April 30, 1920, and that is of Beulah Bradley Miles.

STATE PARK OPENS

TO

PUBLIC

WENTWORTH - The new Mayo River State Park in Rockingham County opened its interim facilities to the public on April 1, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation. The restoration of a pavilion-style picnic shelter designed by renowned architect Antonin Raymond is the centerpiece of the project that also includes picnic grounds, play fields, a hiking trail and a ranger contact station at the 1,961-acre state park authorize by the N.C. General Assembly in 2003. “The development of North Carolina’s 35th state park has truly been a result of close partnership with the community, and the state parks system is very proud to share this achievement with Rockingham County and its citizens,” said Lewis Ledford, state parks director. “Mayo River State Park will grow in its conservation mission and its ability to offer exciting outdoor recreation.” The interim facilities are on a 398-acre site just north of Mayodan on N.C. 220 Business and known locally as Mayo Park. The state parks system acquired the property in 2004 from Avalon Development Corp. Land acquisition for Mayo River State Park continues within a 12-mile river corridor from Mayodan north to the Virginia state line. The state park system owns about 400 acres concontigous to the state line, which could be developed as a second principal access to the park. The former Mayo Park site included the picnic pavilion, a cooking shelter and a bathhouse designed by Raymond, a protege of Frank Lloyd Wright who introduced a Japanese style of architecture to the U.S. incorporating natural materials. The pavilion and cooking shelter have been fully restored in wood and natural stone. The bathhouse was deemed too dilapidated for restoration, although portions of the structure were salvaged for potential later use as exhibits. The site also includes two small ponds, one of which has been drained to allow dam renovation. Five individual picnic sites are being installed as the site. A halfmile hiking trial is in place and volunteers and park staff are building another 1.8 mile trail. The initial development project also includes renovation of a former cartaker’s quarters as a ranger contact station, a restroom building designed in a style similar to Raymond’s and park infrastructure including entrance road, parking areas and utilities. The $1.7 million project was supported by the N.C. Parks and Recreation Trust Fund, the principle funding source for state park land acquisition and capital projects. River State Park has a permanent staff of four and to seasonal employees under the direction of Park Superintendent Fred Watkins.

QUILTER IDOL’ APPEARS IN EDEN “Star Struck” was the theme of the day as nationally renown quilter, Georgia Bonesteel, presented a workshop to area quilters on Tuesday, April 13th in the Community Room at City Hall. Two Rivers Quilt Guild was proud to sponsor a workshop featuring Georgia, a longtime North Carolinian and leader in the quilt world. Georgia’s love of quilting has been shared with thousands of quilters over the past 30 years. Her enthusiasm to share her talent has been expressed in many forms. She has taught at community colleges, given lectures and workshops throughout the country, published books and is the creator and host of Lap Quilting with Georgia Bonesteel, a television series which was produced

with and aired by North Carolina Public Television (UNCTV). Two Rivers Quilt Guild, sponsored by the Garden of Eden Senior Center, is an opportunity for local quilters to share their talents. The Guild held its first meeting in 2005 with approxi-

mately 10 quilt lovers in attendance. The Guild now boasts a membership of over 30. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month at 1:00 PM at the Senior Center. Anyone interested in joining should contact the Senior Center for further information.

Last week I stuffed 100 Easter eggs in preparation for “the big hunt.” I was grumbling under my breath because I was frustrated. I felt like there were many other “more important” things I needed to be doing. I was frustrated because time always seems so limited, no matter what I’m doing. I was sure I didn’t have time to be stuffing eggs with ridiculously overpriced candy that would end up being an unnecessary temptation in my kitchen. “Who needs all this candy?” I asked myself. “My child doesn’t need it and neither do my hips!” And then it hit me. One day my little girl will be too big for frilly baskets and egg hunts. Even Santa Claus and Halloween costumes will eventually lose their magic. She’s growing up too fast, I thought. That realization sent a pain inside my heart. The next day, our family took a trip to Lowes. Our mission: buy a few flowers to fill the empty pots on the front porch and buy some vegetable plants to prepare for our garden. As I strapped my daughter into her car seat, she asked me to ride in the back with her. This is something she asks from time to time and when she does, my husband usually doesn’t mind riding with her. I grumbled at her request because I do not like riding in the back; but I realized she just wanted to be near me, so I climbed in next to her. Only by riding in the back could I experience the ride through her eyes: the eyes of a child. Yes, I had been grateful for the warm

out scenes from the landscape. There were blooms on the trees, cows in green pastures, and wispy clouds against the background of a bright blue sky. I looked at her and saw that she had removed her shoes. She had propped one bare foot in the window and her soft brown hair was blowing in the wind. For a moment I was envious of my daughter. I wanted her carefree and joyous attitude. I wanted to be free from responsibility and worry. Sometimes we’re so busy with the adult world of responsibility that we neglect to appreciate the everyday beauty that surrounds us. Worrying about responsibility does no good and it keeps us from enjoying even the simple things we encounter. When do we lose the ability to see things as our children do? At what point in our lives do we lose that sense of wonderment and excitement about the world and nature around us? Children are far smarter than we give them credit for. Often, it’s adults who are blind and oblivious to the natural wonders right in front of us! We see without looking, hear without listening, and we fail to feel because we don’t stop to embrace. Time keeps passing, and I’ve always heard that the older

NOTES FROM FORREST BRAY Forrest Bray spends his limited time attending all the meetings he can get to in the county, he takes notes, sometimes with editorials as to what he hears at these meetings. We thank him for his time and occasional wit concerning these meetings and wish we could all attend more of them ourselves. Content is strictly editorial.

Republican Party Committee Meeting - Wray Center - Eden, NC - April 3, 2010 This meeting was held on Easter Saturday, with a very good attendance. Wayne Sexton, chairman, reminded everyone about what the federal government is putting on us and that the enforcer will be the IRS. He urged everyone to get his or her precincts organized and active. Three candidates for county commissioner, one running for sheriff, and Bert Jones who is

running for NC State house were present. Bert is very conservative in that he is using his old county commissioner cards, with the new information on the back. Bert, you might want to cross out the county commissioner information! Overall, this was a very good, productive meeting. Remember that the May primary is just around the corner, so be sure to vote. Early voting will be available, with the dates to be announced.

we get, the faster it goes. But time doesn’t speed up – we just lose our childlike sense of wonder because we replace it with schedules, deadlines, and activities we think are important but could probably do without. Some of these things are important and inevitable, but every once in while it doesn’t hurt to ride in the back seat…just to enjoy the ride. My Nannie always reminded me to “Take time to smell the flowers.” That day it was my daughter who reminded me to pick a few too; so I did.

FLURRY’S HOPE Rockingham County is a wealth of resources and treasures to enjoy. One little known treasure is located at 2nd Chance Ranch on Lowe Road in Madison. Flurry’s Hope is a blind horse sanctuary, located on 30 acres at Second Chance Ranch in Madison, NC. Blind horses are often needlessly killed because they are considered useless. The mission of Flurry’s Hope is to rescue and educate others about their incredible potential for riding. What we have found is that they have an extra special ability to love, with their increased dependence upon humans. They often prove to be better at riding than even a sighted horse. They are not easily distracted and are quicker to obey voice commands. Currently, Flurry’s Hope maintains an average of 15 blind horses. Additionally, the newest additions are Mercy and Justice. In the fall of 2009, two blind and starving seven year old horses

were found in a dry paddock in Arkansas, without food or water. Flurry’s Hope agreed to take them both to their home in Rockingham County. A small rescue group raised $1,000 to have them transported to North Carolina. Once they arrived, they were named Mercy and Justice. We believe that by God’s justice, He got them out of that starvation pen. By His mercy, this small rescue group believed that these horses should be given a second chance. Dr. Emilie Storch (a local clinical psychologist is the founder of Flurry’s Hope and she has written a children’s book, which is really a tale for all ages. It is the story of how Flurry’s Hope began. “Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (I Sam. 16:7b). These horses are often destroyed because they are no longer considered perfect, but we have found they are more than perfect when given a second

chance. This beautiful ranch in Madison, NC is home to Flurry’s Hope. We offer a co-op program to students that are interested in horses, their care, grooming and ranch work. In exchange for a monthly donation and a commitment of volunteer hours, co-ops can be matched with a horse to

We have an application and interview process for anyone interested in horse-care or riding. We also have plenty of opportunities to volunteer, donate, sponsor and assist in the overall maintenance and upkeep of this non-profit. If you are interested in learning more about opportunities to work with these Rockingham

County ‘treasures’ – please visit our website at FlurrysHope.Com Contact us for an opportunity to visit and tour the ranch and see these living treasures first hand. Dr. Storch is available to speak to civic organizations, churches and schools about the work at Flurry’s Hope. We are a 501c3 and all donations are tax deductible.

WENTWORTH - What does filling a glass of water from the faucet, ordering food in a restaurant and making sure your children don’t catch the measles have in common? They are all made safer, better and more reliable thanks to the work of your local health department. These examples represent but a small fraction of the work that Rockingham County Department of Public Health undertakes. All day and every day, we work to preserve the health and well-being of our communities. Yet many still do not understand how their local health department operates and how we are continuously working to prevent disease, promote healthy living and respond to threats to our well-being. Several responsibilities of the local health department include, but are not limited to the following tasks: • Protects citizens from health threats, common and uncommon. • Educates citizens about health issues • Provides healthy preventive practices for county citizens • Tracks and investigates health problems and hazards in the community • Prepares for and responds to public health emergencies • Develops, applies and enforces policies, laws and regulations that improve health and ensure safety • Leads efforts to mobilize communities around important health issues • Links people to health services • Achieves excellence in public health practice through a trained workforce, evaluation and evidence-based intervention programs. April is national Public Health Month and during Public Health Month, we would like to increase the awareness about public health and the important role public health plays in our daily lives.

ROCKINGHAM COUNTY HEALTHY CAROLINIANS: PROVIDING RESOURCES FOR OUR COMMUNITY Healthy Carolinians is a state-wide health initiative designed to encourage counties in North Carolina to identify priority health issues and create or support coalitions and collaborative efforts that address the issues involving health and wellness for the citizens of that county. Rockingham County Healthy Carolinians (RCHC) was established in 1994 and certified in 1995 with the most recent recertification in 2009. Rockingham County Healthy Carolinians is a coalition consisting of local agencies, businesses, schools, and medical facilities, members of the faith community and citizens who are focused on addressing the health concerns of the community through specific action plans. RCHC is governed by a Steering Committee and consists of three sub-committees or workgroups that focus on specific health issues. The Local Physical Activity and Nutrition (LPAN) is a workgroup that focuses on increased fitness opportunities and improving nutrition, obesity, skin cancer awareness, and chronic disease prevention. LPAN implements such programs as Eat Smart/Move More/Weigh Less, Summer Meal Project, African American Churches Eat Smart/Move More, and various worksite wellness health initiatives. LPAN will soon release the 2010 Physical Activity Resource Guide (PARG), which will be distributed throughout county. The PARG will identify locations in Rockingham County where individuals (including families) can find fitness activities to participate in. The guide includes locations for activities such as: swimming, hiking, walking/running, tennis, kayaking or canoeing, golf, in addition to activities for our senior population. Maternal and Child Health (MCH) is another workgroup of RCHC, which focuses on decreasing infant mortality, decreasing second-hand smoke exposure, substance abuse preventions, child safety, and breast and cervical cancer awareness/preventions. MCH promotes programs such as ‘Give Kids a Smile’ (an elementary school dental screening, program), maternal health fairs, smoking cessation classes, and Safe Kids of Rockingham County. The MCH resource guide identifies places where pregnant women and/or mothers and children can go to receive services. The service listings include, but are not limited to: obstetrician/gynecological (OB/GYN) offices, local health department and other health and social service agencies, education, housing and transportation services, among many others. The Access to Health Care (AHC) workgroup focuses on access to health care for citizens of Rockingham County. This includes diabetes outreach efforts, mental health, and prostate and colorectal cancer awareness/prevention. The AHC resource guide informs citizens of available medical resources throughout the county. These resources are extremely important to the more indigent citizens and in this economic climate, the workgroup remains dedicated to pro-

TRAINING PUTTING

PEOPLE BACK TO WORK

WENTWORTH - The idea behind the federally funded JobsNOW program is to quickly train people for marketable jobs. The types of jobs involved vary from county to county and state to state but the end result is supposed to be the same: get people back to work in jobs that require six months or less of training. In Rockingham County, that goal is being met. Since the program was first launched in 2009, Rockingham Community College has offered training in five areas: warehouse technician, customer relations, BLET (basic law enforcement training), CNA (certified nursing assistant) and phlebotomy. To date 36 individuals have graduated and more will graduate as their training programs end. Of the 36 graduates, half are already working, one is engaged in a paid work experience position and two are in non-paying work experience positions in order to gain experience for resume purposes. They are working at places such as American Express, Tyco Electronics, Olan Mills, KobeWeiland, MillerCoors, AFG Wipes and area sheriff’s and police departments. The program was structured in Rockingham County to give graduates the best tools possible to obtain employment – job training, career readiness certification, and human resources development training which teaches a person how to interview. Tony Hawks, a warehouse technician graduate, said, “By completing the JobsNOW program, I was able to gain employment with MillerCoors …(who) took interest in the fact that I wanted to update my skills and gain knowledge of general warehouse operations.” Carl Schmuhl, PHR employee relations manager at MillerCoors in Eden, placed a lot of importance on the JobsNOW training as well as the career readiness certification. “We work in a fast-paced environment,” he said. “Individuals working in the distribution area work with inventory and moving loads of material. They need analytical skills, math skills and the ability to follow directions, all of which are addressed through career readiness.” KobeWeiland Human Resources & Safety Specialist Gary Joyce, said that while the JobsNOW training does not exactly match their needs, the core training is adaptable to a variety of work environments. RCC’s JobsNOW Student Placement Coordinator, Regeina Galloway, is also responsible for the successful employment rate. Many local employers now look to her to help them fill positions within their companies. “JobsNOW training is filling an important need,” said Galloway. “More individuals are interested and enrolling in short term training programs and employers need individuals with the training we’re offering at RCC.”

JROTC VISITS CAPITAL During Spring Break 2010, 50 cadets from the Morehead High School Army JROTC Department spent 3 days touring our Nations Capital, Washington D.C. From 26 to 28 March the cadets learned about American History by touring the Arlington Cemetery, the U.S. Capital, Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Museum, Holocaust Museum, Illuminated tours of the World War II, Jefferson Washington Lincoln Memorial, Korean, Vietnam and Iwo Jima Memorials, White House, USS Barry and Navy Museum, Fords Theatre/Peterson House and Mount Vernon. The cadets of the “Panther Battalion” would like to thank those individuals and businesses who financially assisted in supporting this trip. Cadet Bn Commander Samantha Scales said “It was a life-long learning experience to see and witness the places and things we saw. The most touching experience for me was visiting Arlington Cemetery and observing the placing of a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.” Instructors First Sergeant David Bray and First Sergeant Zack Reynolds summed the field trip up as a success, in that it met our mission statement goals “to motivate young people to be better citizens.” Now our cadets have seen first hand the selfless sacrifices made and the character this great country is built on.

Pippie’s Closet recently held their official ribbon cutting and Grand Opening in Reidsville at their 209 S Scales Street Reidsville location. The Mayor of Reidsville, Chamber Members and city officials were present to help the family and friends of owner Tammy celebrate the occasion. Call Tammy at 336-634-0104 for more details.

PIPPIE’S CLOSET OPENS IN REIDSVILLE A unique shop recently opened its doors in Downtown Reidsville that should be a great place to spend a little shopping time. Tammy Waller said, “I initially started Pippes because of the economy. I have two sets of twins and to go and shop for a family of six at the mall was not realistic. I guess in a nut shell I wanted the quality at a affordable price. I also wanted a cool place that teenagers-up would shop and want to come back. I carry clothes, shoes, jewelry, purses, scrubs, scarfs, hats, and cute fun items. My sizes are pre-teen up for guys and girls.” When asked how the name came about she said, “The name is a question I get alot. My older set of twins were playing around with their cousin and came up with Pippie. One of my twins, Brook, started changing her voice and playing as Pippie to get a few laughs. (She is my little jester). So when I was looking to open my store I wanted it to be fun and the first thing I thought of was all those days Brook would cheer us up acting out as Pippie and their you have it. My mother in law thought it would be cute to add closet and the name was born.” Their style is laid back, some say Hippie. She plans to open her store along with all events that go on downtown even if that means til midnight. “The only day I reserve for a day of rest and to give thanks to the one who makes all of this possible, my Lord, is Sunday. Other than that we are here and want everyone to come visit and become regulars,” she says. All sales and events are posted on my facebook and my email is pippiescloset@yahoo.com Tammy wanted to thank just a few of those special to her... “The Lord for blessing me with such a great business My husband and children for all their help, support, and patience Greg and Jennifer Gunn you both are the greatest My family and friends for everything they have done for us to make this possible from prayers to free labor All the downtown Merchants for making me feel so welcomed and all my customers past present and future for keeping me in business. If I missed ya, not intentional please still love me.”

UNITED WAY NEARS GOAL United Way of Rockingham County has raised $889,559 of its $900,000 campaign goal. For those who haven’t given so far, to give even a little will help reach the goal and continue provision of basic needs, access to medical care, safety, and success in school for Rockingham County citizens. “No gift is too small,” comments Rick Hurley, United Way’s Executive Director. “Even a gift of one dollar a week, just $52, will help us reach the goal and support these vital services to our community.” One way to give is to sign up for the second annual Ride UNITED sponsored by Wolf Creek Harley-Davidson and the

ASSAULT

Harley Owners Group of Rockingham County and join the HOGS on the road to raise money for the United Way of Rockingham County on Saturday, April 24th. “It is so important to reach goal because with an unemployment rate of 15.2%, county agencies tell us the need for services has increased by 30% to 40%,” says Charlie Hall, this year’s Campaign Chairman. “So, to raise less than the $900,000 goal means that services may not be given to people who desperately need our help!” Registration for Ride UNITED is open to all bikes and bikers, and will begin at 9 a.m. at

Wolf Creek Harley-Davidson on Saturday, April 24th with doughnuts and coffee. The ride, starting at 11 a.m., will give bikers a chance to enjoy Rockingham County and to learn about how funds raised in this event will make a difference as they tour some of the United Way’s funded agencies. The last stop back at Wolf Creek Harley-Davidson will include hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill, door prizes and a 50-50 drawing. Cost is $20 for one rider and $5 for the second rider on a bike. Contact Wolf Creek Harley-Davidson at 3425133 or United Way of Rockingham County at 342-7768 for more information.

AND FIRE

On April 4th Stephen McArthur Pleasant, 41, of 121 Strawberry Road was kidnapped and taken to 200 Chambers Drive in Reidsville. There, he was beaten and robbed. Pleasant went to the landlord of Chamber’s Mobile Home Park to seek assistance. He was suffering multiple injuries from an altercation with three acquaintances. He also reported the mobile home at lot #6 was on fire. Oregon Hill Fire Department responded to extinguish the fire. (The house is believed to be a total loss). EMS transported the victim to Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro for treatment of several wounds, including head injuries. The initial investigation indicates Pleasant was at his residence with acquaintances who later kidnapped him. They took him to the Chambers Drive location where they beat him severely, robbed him and left the scene. Also assisting at the scene were the Rockingham County Fire Marshal’s Office, Rockingham County Emergency Medical Services. Sheriff’s investigators have now reported the arrests of those responsible for the attack. These men have been arrested, and each has a bond of $250,000 and is in the Rockingham County Jail.

Regular residential solid waste will be accepted for disposal from County residents, and items from the usual municipal “clean up” collections programs conducted during the “Clean Up Week”. Recyclable materials including used oil, used oil filters, antifreeze, scrap tires, wood pallets, appliances & scrap metal, clean wood waste, and auto batteries must be separated from other solid waste materials brought for disposal. These materials should be brought on loads separate from wastes brought for landfill disposal.

On May 4,the Democratic Party will select two candidates for County Commissioner. Mr. Stanley and Mrs. Dallas are already on the Board of Commissioners and are running for re-election. Guerrant Tredway and Anita Hutcherson are running for those seats. Mr. Tredway and Mrs. Hutcherson have been actively working for quite some time in the interest of the people of Rockingham County. WE ask that our democratic friends think hard about the following questions? 1. Do you want commissioners who will talk to the people? 2. Do you want commissioners who will let people talk to them? 3. Do you want commissioners who actively work to lead the country, or do you want commissioners who let the county manager lead them? 4. Do you want commissioners who will let the people vote before going forward with million dollar expenditures 5. Do you want commissioners who pay no attention to the wants of the people of Rockingham County but go blindly forward on building a horse stable when they already know it will cost over twice as much as the predicted (and they don’t have the money)? 6. Do you want commissioners who insist upon setting their meetings at times that are most inconvenient for citizens to attend? 7. Do you want commissioners who will only let members of the public speak for three minutes at every second meeting? 8. Do you want commissioners who let a contractor order brick for a county construction job from the State of Utah, approximately 2,000 miles away, rather that purchasing from a brick maker located in Rockingham County? 9. Have you ever had a member of our Board of County Commissioners ask your opinion about anything? 10. Have you ever had a conversation with a member of the Board of County Commissioners? 11. Have you ever heard from any of our commissioners except at voting time? 12. Do you believe the board should closely scrutinize county expenditures? 13. How did you like the way the county handled the property revaluations? 14. How did you feel when the then-Chairman of the Board of Commissioners state publicly that she thought most people in Rockingham County were satisfied with the revaluation? 15. At a special meeting of the commissioners attended by almost 1,000 citizens in protest over the revaluation, how did you like it when the then-Chairman of the County Commissioners threatened to adjourn the meeting and evict us if we didn’t get quiet? 16. Did you know that the county has already spent approximately two million dollars on the stable without having any idea where the money will come from to build it? 17. Do you think that our county commissioners have lost touch with the people and not the other way around? 18. Do you think the county commissioners understand that they are supposed to work for the people and not the other way around. 19. Would you prefer commissioners to concentrate on jobs rather than gambling millions of dollars on a stable which will probably be a failure? 20. Do you believe we would all be better off if we made complete changes of all offices at country, state and national level? 21. Do you think the county commissioners know what they are doing?

After thinking about the above questions, ask yourselves this question: How much more am I going to take before helping to make a change? WILL OF THE PEOPLE is neither Republican nor Democrat. We are very concerned with what we see in government all the way from local to Washington and we work to change things for the better. After you have read and thought about the items set out above, we ask you to decide whether you want more of the same in Rockingham County or whether you want to work together to change the entire Board of Commissioners, all of whom are guilty. The candidates we are recommending we believe are what we want and need in county government. Please help them with your vote and with contributions to help them pay their campaign bills. Very Truly yours, Thomas S. Harrington, Chairman WILL OF THE PEOPLE

#5 plastic is used in tubs for salads and other grocery items. It is not recycled readily in this area. #6 plastic is usually called Styrofoam and is used in disposable foam utensils, but it is also the plastic found in the sturdy disposable plates and cups found in many colors. The only recycling we have heard of recently is in a location in Randolph County. #7 plastic is a catch-all category. You may see it in syrup and ketchup bottles and it is recyclable as long as it is in the bottle shape.

ANNOUNCES

CITIZENS HAVE CASH OR STOCKS

OWED TO THEM

Rep. Nelson Cole would like you to watch in the next Eden’s Own Journal for a continued listing of Rockingham County citizens who have cash or stocks waiting for them with the state. There is approximately $380,000 in stocks and cash, which is owed to over 1400 people in Rockingham County alone. The state does not put forth an extensive effort to find these persons or businesses. Starting in the January 15th issue names will be listed so that you can see if you or someone you know are on it. The names will be listed with the last known town they were located in. Contact the call center at (919) 508-1000 Unfortunately, there is not a toll free number available. In most cases, individuals had moved, so there would need to be proof of the former address, as well as the social security number. In the case of a death , there would need to be a death certificate and a form from the clerk of court. For stocks, individuals will be sent a form to complete. See more in next issue...

Financial Focus Edward Jones INVEST IN YOUR GOALS

LOOK FOR WAYS TO CUT INVESTMENT TAXES Like millions of your fellow citizens, you may be filing your taxes this week. If you think that things might have turned out differently had you paid less in investment-related taxes, you might want to take steps soon to help ensure a different outcome in 2011. Here are some “tax-smart” strategies to consider: Invest in municipal bonds. If you’re in one of the upper income brackets, you might benefit from owning municipal bonds. The interest payments from “munis” are typically exempt from federal income taxes, and may also be exempt from state and local taxes, depending on where you live. (However, the interest from some types of munis may be subject to the alternative minimum tax, or AMT.) “Max out” on your Roth IRA. If you qualify for a Roth IRA, try to fully fund it every year. Your earnings grow tax-free, provided you’ve had your account at least five years and you don’t take withdrawals until you’re at least 59-1/2. And now, it’s easier to convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. Under previous rules, you could only convert if your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) was $100,000 or less. But starting this year, you can convert funds to a Roth IRA even if your MAGI is over $100,000. And if you convert in 2010, you can report the taxable income from the conversion over a twoyear period, in 2011 and 2012. Distribute assets between taxable and retirement accounts. You’ll want to look at all your investments as a whole to determine if they’re working together to help you achieve your goals. But in considering ways to control investment taxes, you may also find it useful to look at two separate categories: your tax taxdeferred retirement accounts,

Provided by Michael Aviña with Edward Jones Investments, 621 Monroe St., Eden. And Kathy W. Hale, Edward Jones Investments, 302 N. Pierce Street, Eden.

such as your traditional IRA and your 401(k), and your taxable accounts, which hold all the investments not in your retirement accounts. As a (very) general rule, you might want to put income-producing securities, such as taxable bonds, into your tax-deferred retirement accounts. When you ultimately take out this money, presumably at retirement, your withdrawals will be taxed at your income tax rate, but by then, you may be in a lower tax bracket. Conversely, you may want to put growth-oriented securities, such as stocks, in your taxable account; as long as you hold these assets at least a year, you’ll only have to pay the long-term capital gains rate, which is currently 15 percent if you’re in one of the top three tax brackets. (This rate may soon rise, however.) Sell your “losers” throughout the year. If you own investments that have lost value and that you don’t need to keep for other reasons (such as portfolio balance), consider selling them throughout the year. Your losses can offset any capital gains you might have achieved; if you don’t have any gains, the losses can offset up to $3,000 of your regular income. Plus, any losses that you don’t use in a given year can be carried forward indefinitely for use against future capital gains. Before embarking on any of these strategies, consult with your tax advisor. Every “taxsmart” move may not be appropriate for your individual situation. But if you’re concerned about the impact of investment taxes, it can certainly pay to explore all your options.

For The Fun Of It DARN THOSE PHONES

A dispatcher in Daytona Beach, Florida, notified the police when she received a call and overheard two teenagers in the process of stealing items from parked cars in a mall parking lot. They were overheard discussing which items would be worth taking. Apparently they had inadvertently dialed 911. The police arrived and caught them red-handed.

DON'T ROB A LIQUOR STORE WHEN YOU ARE DRUNK

A Wyoming man, who was suspected of stealing a bottle of Schnapps from the store, could have planned his escape a little better. He simply ran out of the store and into the nearest building which was the police station. Apparently realizing where he was, he then ran out of the station. But a dispatcher saw him on the surveillance camera and alerted officers. He was caught nearby, quite drunk, and taken into custody. (They didn't have far to go.)

QUICK RESPONSE

The police screamed to the scene with sirens blasting. A man had called to report that he had just killed someone and had a gun. When they got there, they found the man who told them he made it up. He claimed that he had been assaulted and wanted the police to respond quickly. They quickly arrested him for filing a false report and sent him to jail.

SNOOPY HE ISN'T

Responding to an alarm going off in a hockey rink, the police found an intoxicated man trying to operate the Zamboni. He had crashed it into a wall. He had also operated two fork lifts, damaging the walls, sprinkler system and hockey net. He was charged with burglary, criminal mischief, violation of his bail conditions and drunk driving.

WATCH WHAT YOU DO WITH THE GOODS

A postal worker has been charged with stealing gold which he was supposed to deliver. He made the mistake of pawning it at the same pawn shop which had melted it down to send to a business in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The jeweler at the pawn shop recognized it. The postal worker was charged with embezzling.

CHECK

THE

WEATHER

An observant cop stopped a woman driving on the Long Island Expressway in the car pool lane and found a mannequin in the passenger seat. She was given a ticket. What tipped him off? The mannequin was wearing sunglasses and had the visor down. It was an overcast day.

NICE PEOPLE SWALLOW

It seems a certain crook had the bad habit of spitting tobacco juice. And he didn't exactly care where he spit. A keen eyed detective noticed tobacco juice stains on some papers that had been ransacked at an insurance office where a burglary had occurred. Since none of the ladies in the office chewed tobacco, he reasoned the spit belonged to the

thief and took a DNA sample. Tobacco spit was also found at five other crime scenes in the area. The DNA in all of them matched. The police had a suspect for the robberies and got a warrant to test his DNA. Voila! It matched. They are expecting a conviction.

SHORT ON CASH. WILL THIS DO?

A customer at the drive through window of a fast food restaurant apparently didn't have enough cash on him to pay the bill. He offered to pay for his order with marijuana. The cashier refused and called the police with a description of the vehicle. Soon after, a police officer spotted the vehicle and pulled it over. An inspection of the car turned up marijuana. The driver was arrested.

STEAL SOMETHING SMALLER NEXT TIME

A 25-year-old man in Utah decided he wanted to get to Washington to see his mother for Christmas. Not having a car, he hopped into a $500,000 fire truck, blew the air horn and tried to drive away. The fire fighters ran out to see what was happening. He put up a big fight, but they were finally able to subdue him. He never made it to Washington for Christmas.

TOO DUMB THIEF

TO

BE

A

The police had no trouble finding this thief. When he used a stolen credit card to buy some cigars, he signed his own name on the receipt. Later he tried to buy some merchandise at a store, but the card came up as stolen. When asked for some identification, he presented his own driver's license.

HE BROKE WHERE???

INTO

You really have to wonder about this one. Why would a thief break into a courthouse? I guess when you're drunk, your judgment is a little off, to say the least. This guy pried open the sliding door to the courthouse and broke into the safe in the lobby. The only problem was that it's an antique safe and there was nothing in it. It was there only for display. In fact, it wasn't locked because the lock was broken. He was caught when he again tried to pry open to door to get out. He was back inside the same courthouse a few hours later where he was arraigned on a charge of second degree burglary.

SLEEPING BEAUTY

A man came home to his apartment to find the bedroom and kitchen cabinets had been rummaged. He also found the burglar asleep on the living room floor. When the police came and were able to wake him, he was so drunk that he thought he was in his own apartment.

FLUBBED ESCAPE

A man in New Hampshire was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint. After handing over his driver's license and registration, he floored the gas pedal and tried to make a get away (almost running

down a police officer). The police caught up with him and found marijuana in his car. He was charged with a DUI, drug possession, disobeying a police officer and reckless driving.

JUST

A

LITTLE CAT NAP

Police in Arizona responded to a burglar alarm at a gun and police accessories store in Prescott. They found a man inside, fast asleep. He'd apparently entered through a window and claimed that he was driving and got sleepy. He was just looking for a place to take a nap. He was found with a flashlight, gloves and a bag which contained expensive electronics from the store. He also smelled of alcohol. The police had a hard time believing his story, especially since there were several warrants out on him. He was arrested.

IT'S WHAT?

A group of teenagers in Arkansas tried to pawn a 62+ pound hunk of metal. The shop owner was suspicious and convinced them that it was only lead. He offered them $30 for it. Since they needed money for gas, they took it. The police were called and six young people were arrested for allegedly stealing the metal plus various gold and silver coins. It seems the hunk of metal was actually a silver ingot worth $15,000.

2 BIRDS, ONE STONE

Police in Montana stopped a car because the driver was swerving. While they were having him do the field sobriety test, the passenger got behind the wheel and

drove off. The police yelled at him and he stopped. He was also sited for drunk driving.

NERVES OF STEEL SHE DIDN'T HAVE

A female walked into a bank in Centereach, New York and handed the teller a note, demanding all her cash. The note said she would start shooting if the teller didn't comply. The teller asked her, "Are you serious?" The suspect responded by fleeing the bank.

DIED

IN

AFGHANISTAN

A woman in Gloucester, UK, filed a life insurance claim on her husband's $550,000 policy, because he had died in Afghanistan of brain trauma after an accident. She had the death certificate to prove it. You would think a dead man would not need to see his doctor for anything. But, yet, the husband showed up at his general practitioner a few weeks later. He had also been living openly in Gloucester, working and paying taxes. They were both sentenced to community service because (1) they were "less than sophisticated," in other words, dumb and (2) no money was lost.

DON'T MESS WITH PIZZA HUT

A former employee of a Pizza Hut tried to extort $500 for five car roof signs that he took while he worked there. You know, the kind the pizza guy (or gal) puts on top of their car when they go delivering pizzas. The manager told him he wanted proof that he really had them. So the guy emailed him a picture. Only problem was, the

police were able to zoom in on the license plates of two cars in the background which were registered to the guy. He was charged with extortion, possession of stolen property and grand larceny.

TO DO LIST

Two men escaped a prison in Vermont. When they were caught in New York City, they were found with this To Do list: Drive to Maine Get safer place to stay Buy guns Get Marie Get car in Dartmouth Do robbery, Go to New York

GUNS

FOR

HIRE

"Guns for Hire" is a company which stages gunfights for Western movies and for other events. One day a woman called and asked if she could hire them to kill her husband. She was sentences to 4 years for the request.

THAT STINKS

A man broke into a landfill and attempted to steal $10 worth of copper. Only problem is that he got stuck under a large metal trash bin for 12 hours until the employees found him the next day.

NO WARRANT?

A man was charged with drug possession. At his trial, he claimed that the officers had searched him without a search warrant. The judge explained that they did not need one because the bulge in his pocket had looked like a gun. The man happened to be wearing the same jacket. When he handed it to the judge, a bag of cocaine fell out of the pocket. The judge had to take a five minute recess to regain his composure.
