E D E N: PA RTNERING WITH ITS N EIGHBORS F O R P R O G R E S S 2009 was a challenging year for economic development as Eden suffered the negative effects of a global recession. But, the way was paved for future prosperity through a joint effort with its neighbors to the north--Danville and Pittsylvania County, VA. Since 2001, a commission has worked diligently to acquire 3,500 acres of property along Berry Hill Road in Pittsylvania County. This acreage comprises a “mega-park,” a massive industrial area that is large enough to accommodate an automotive or steel plant. The Virginia Department of Transportation estimates that it could produce 5,000-11,000 jobs in the future. Because Eden is a border city, there has been historical inflow and outflow of workers between both states. Approximately 60% of the former Hanesbrands workers hailed from Virginia and many Eden residents are employed at Danville’s Goodyear plant. Eden and all of Rockingham County would benefit from any jobs locating in the mega-park. However, our association with this industrial park may be more extensive and beneficial to our community. Eden has been approached to supply water and sewer utilities to Phase II of the park. While no final decision has been made, it

appears favorable that Eden will be partnering in this park. This could result in more revenue for the city that can be used to refurbish its aging infrastructure. Ongoing efforts to pursue grant funding both statewide and at the federal level are being made. In mid-March, Eden Mayor John Grogan and City Councilman Darryl Carter ventured to Washington D.C. to lobby for federal assistance to fund infrastructure needs for the park. The Golden Leaf Foundation, North Carolina Rural Center and USDA are also being tapped to help fund this project. Regionalism has been promoted for years as the key to economic development. Eden and Rockingham County are far more similar to Henry and Pittsylvania Counties than they are to Guilford and Forsyth Counties in terms of demographics, work force skills, and natural resources. Instead of competing against our northern neighbors, we are now partnering with them to bring jobs to our area. Now, Eden can benefit from the North Carolina and Virginia Departments of Commerce who will be actively shopping the mega-park to prospective clients. Having two state operations working for Eden, instead of one, is a good deal indeed.

S TATE G R A N T H ELPS W HITER IDGE P LASTICS E X PA N D Gov. Bev Perdue today announced that WhiteRidge Plastics LLC, a national supplier of custom-molded plastic parts for the automotive, industrial, agricultural, tool and custompart markets, will expand its operations in Rockingham County. The company plans to create 55 jobs and invest more than $1.2 million during the next three years in Reidsville. The project was made possible in part by a $45,000 grant from the MOLDED One North Carolina Fund. “North Carolina conPLASTIC tinues to be attractive to MANUFACTURER manufacturing companies TO BRING looking for the ideal loca55 JOBS, tion to invest, expand and create new jobs,” Gov. $1.2 MILLION Perdue said. “Our state’s INVESTMENT TO skilled workers, top edu- ROCKINGHAM cational programs and COUNTY top-business ratings provide the perfect climate to support successful businesses.” WhiteRidge Plastics, headquartered with its manufacturing plant in Reidsville, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Myers Industries Inc.

WhiteRidge currently employs about 100 at its Reidsville plant. The company plans to install new product lines at the Reidsville facility to manufacture parts for Honda light trucks and all-terrain vehicles. Salaries vary by job function, but the annual average wage for the 55 new jobs will be $21,856, not including benefits. The Continued On Page 2

These grants also require and are contingent upon local matches. “During these tough economic times, it’s critical to make the right investments to create jobs and to create a business climate that will allow companies to grow,” said Rep. Nelson Cole. “These are welcome jobs in Reidsville and I will continue to work with Governor Perdue on bringing more jobs to the area and to North Carolina.” Through Gov. Perdue’s JobsNOW initiative, the state works aggressively to create jobs, train and retrain its workforce, and lay the foundation for a sustainable economic future.

Letter to the Editor Census Booboo My doorbell rang at 9:30 on Sunday morning when I was about to get dressed for church. A young lady with a census bag hanging on her arm was at the door. Since I had mailed my census form as soon as I received it, I was curious as to what she was doing here, especially on a Sunday morning. When I asked her what her visit was all about, she said that no house number was on my mailed form. I questioned how that could have happened when I had received the original form and mailed it back with the correct information. I tried to do this correctly in order to save tax money and to prevent having to pay wages and mileage for just such a visit. We were assured that we would not have a visit from the Census Bureau if we filled out our form and mailed it back. In addition to the question about my house number, she also had another form about four pages long, front and back. After answering a few of her additional questions, I had to ask her to leave so that I could dress for church. Now I wonder if she did represent the Census Bureau and if so, why the visit? Is this just another way for the government to spend money? The only good thing I saw about the whole situation is that the young lady said that she had been unemployed before taking this job and at least it was a way that she could earn some money. Sincerely, Forrest Bray

Question:Cardboard takes up a lot of room in our landfills. Where can it be recycled in Rockingham County? Answer: The Rockingham County landfill takes cardboard at its recycling center and Eden’s main recycling location accepts it. Those are the only locations in the County accepting cardboard at this time.

C OUNTY A TTRACTIONS FE AT U R E D O N N O RT H C AROLINA W EEKEND A couple weeks ago, Robin Yount, vice president of Tourism, and other Rockingham County Partnership staff spent the day showing off county attractions to the producer of UNC-TV’s “North Carolina Weekend” show. That day resulted in additional trips to Rockingham County and several features for local attractions that will air on “North Carolina Weekend” in the coming months. “North Carolina Weekend” is a weekly show on UNC-TV that highlights the best things to see and do across the state each weekend. The show takes viewers on a journey beyond black and white pictures and boring text descriptions and into the latest colorful sites and sounds of the story - giving them a firsthand look at what North Carolina has to offer. The show airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. and repeats on Fridays at 8 p.m. on UNC-TV. Bob Garner, “North Carolina Weekend’s” food host, noted author and authority on North Carolina barbeque and cuisine, spent a Saturday afternoon sampling the food at

Garner filmed segments at each restaurant for upcoming episodes of “North Carolina Weekend.” A feature on Mountainside Restaurant will air during “North Carolina Weekend” on May 27th at 9:00 p.m. on UNCTV. The June 3rd “North Carolina Weekend” show will feature a segment about the Charlie Poole Music Festival in Eden. The Charlie Poole Music Festival, which is in its 15th year, celebrates the special contribution that Eden native Charlie Poole and the North Carolina Ramblers made to American music. That show will air at 9 p.m. Fuzzy’s Bar-B-Q will be featured during the food segment with Bob Garner during “North Carolina Weekend” on June 10 at 9:00 p.m. on UNC-TV. A crew from “North Carolina Weekend” will spend the day on Rockingham County’s rivers next weekend. The crew, which will be guided by Three Rivers Outfitters in Eden, will film a feature on the history of the county’s rivers and the paddling adventures offered here. The date the river feature will air is still to be determined. Additional features on other county attractions and events will air in the coming months. “We will be sure to announce the dates when other features on Rockingham County will air,” said Robin Yount, vice president of Tourism. “We are very excited to have our local attractions and events featured on North Carolina Weekend. We thank the staff at UNC-TV for taking such a great interest in Rockingham County and helping us promote our local attractions throughout the state.”

One will depict the county's past and the other its future. Items for inclusion in the "past" panel are close to being finalized, but items for inclusion in the "future" panel, topics of importance to Rockingham County's future success, have yet to be decided. To determine which will be included, they have created an on-line survey asking county residents to select from a list of 11 potential themes. To access the survey, go to and click on "Click to take survey" under local news. Please respond by June 10th if possible

EDEN Fifteenth Annual Charlie Poole Music Festival this June will feature the first “Charlie Poole River Ramble.” The River Ramble is a special guided river float down a stretch of the beautiful Smith and Dan Rivers. Coordinated by the Dan River Basin Association, River Ramble will take place on Saturday June 12 during the festival weekend. The River Ramble will be a leisurely two hour float on unspoiled rivers guided by Three Rivers Outfitters. The trip begins on the scenic Smith River, near the historic 1892 Spray Mercantile Building where paddlers will hear the stories of this once-thriving textile town. Internationally renowned banjo musician, Charlie Poole, worked here at Spray Cotton Mills. In July 1925 Poole and his North Carolina Ramblers made their first recording with Columbia Records. Their record was a smash hit and sold more than 100,000 copies, an un-heard of number in the day. Also nearby is the historic 1898 Nantucket Mill. Piedmont Folk Legacies and the National Banjo Initiative envision a new life for the mill as a National Banjo Center, museum, recording studio and performance venue. After putting on the river at Spray Cotton Mills, paddlers will float under Island Ford Bridge near Spray Circle and past the new Island Ford Landing at Eden’s Smith River Greenway. About a mile downstream, after passing under the Kings Highway Bridge, paddlers will come upon a large rock forma-

tion on river left known as Bear Slide, a state Natural Heritage Area recognized for rare communities of wild flowers. Paddlers also can expect to see water fowl and perhaps even Eden’s mascot, a river otter. Past Bear Slide, where the Smith joins the Dan River, paddlers will turn upstream a short distance to view the impressive remains of the 1852 Leaksville Toll Bridge. After floating down to the nationally famous arched Mebane Bridge, paddlers will take out at the NC Wildlife Access on the Dan River where all will be shuttled back to the Charlie Poole Festival in time for lunch at the Eden Fairgrounds. River Ramble ticket price is $50 and includes festival admission for all three days, two meals, refreshments, and shuttles from the fairgrounds to the river. Free boats rentals (fee waived) are available on a first come, first served basis. Free T-shirts for first 30 registrants. Space is limited, so sign up early at and click the “festival” link; or just send your check to Charlie Poole Festival, P.O. Box 867, Eden, NC 27289.

M O R E A TTRACTIONS A D D E D TO C HARLIE P O O L E M USIC FESTIVA L The Charlie Poole Music Festival, June 11-13, has filled out its schedule with more exciting features: a talk by famous old-time music authorities, and two new musical groups that will play during the breaks in the allday competitions on Saturday. A Conversation with Bill Malone - Pioneering country music historian Dr. Bill C. Malone, emeritus professor of history at Tulane University, and author of numerous books on Southern culture and the roots of country music, is scheduled to receive the Charlie Poole Lifetime Achievement Award on Friday evening during the opening concert. He has consented to stay over to join Piedmont Folk Legacies Vice President Henry "Hank" Sapoznik in a Sunday morning conversation on the occasion of the new updated republication of his groundbreaking 1968 book, "Country Music USA". Among the topics they will discuss is how country music has changed since the book was

first published, as understanding of the history of country music has also changed. They will also discuss Dr. Malone's upcoming book, a biography of old time music great, the late Mike Seeger. Dr. Malone has made a lifelong study of American music, and has been called “country music’s senior authority.” This promises to be a fascinating opportunity to learn about where our local musical heritage came from and how it grew. The event is being opened to the general public, 9:30 AM Sunday morning at the Eden Fairgrounds. Additions to the Saturday Schedule Meanwhile, the local dulcimer group, Chords and Strings, has been scheduled to play at approximately 3:30 PM Saturday (depends how the competition goes). They are only a little more than a year old, but have gained an impressive reputation for creating wonderful music with their mountain (not hammer) dul-

cimers. Then in another break at approximately 8:30 PM, the audience will be treated to a performance by the energetic young group Milltown, an Americana string band presenting both oldtime and original material with lots of pizzazz. This will be shortly before the Grand Prize ($500) competition as the excitement of the evening mounts. Places are still available for the unique River Ramble, and the Little Ramblers children’s area will be another new feature for the festival. Information about tickets, camping, schedule, and line-up are available on the website Food and other vendors are expected to be on site for the festival. More information is available at 336-623-1043. The festival receives support from the Grassroots Program of the Rockingham County Arts Council and the NC Arts Council, as well as from the Rockingham County Tourism Authority.

Rockingham County 4-H had their County Activity Days on May 4 and 25. 4-H had 39 entries for presentations, public speaking, fashion revue, performing and artistic talent. County activity days are contests held to qualify our 4-Hers from the ages of 5 – 19 for the North Central District 4-H Activity Day which are the same contests except 17 different counties are competing together. On May 4, presentations were given on a variety of topics such as Healthy Living, Growing Shiitake Mushrooms, the Chincoteague Pony and CFL Lights. 4-Hers were judged and were awarded with certificates and scholarship money. On May 25, the 4-H Fashion Revue and the Talent Show was held. The performing talents were wonderful! There were singers, a cheerleader and a piano player. There was also another talent category that which allowed 4-Hers to show off their artistic talent in a variety of categories; sewing, painting, drawing, woodworking, photography and many more. There was great participation for this artistic talent portion, every item in the categories were very different and unique. In the 4-H Fashion Revue that evening the 4-Hers got the chance to model the garment that they made. Our 4-Hers showed off their modeling moves while showing off their hand made items. There were two fashion items made; two very beautiful dresses. They showed off their expertise while walking down the runway! The top two 9-18 year olds in each category for each contest will be attending the district contest in Person County on June 23rd. The group would like to thank our funders for their help in these programs. United Way of Rockingham County and Rockingham County Farm Bureau were wonderful supporters of this program.

U RANIUM M INING S TUDY A PPROVED F O R B E R RY H ILL A R E A A subcommittee of the Virginia Commission on Coal and Energy recently approved the study on mining uranium in south-central Virginia, near the boarder with Rockingham and Caswell counties. The Berry Hill area is one local area containing the uranium deposit With the Pittsylvania County site estimated to be one of the largest undeveloped uranium deposits in the U.S. (7th largest in the world), estimates as to its worth are nearly $10 billion. There has been a ban on uranium mining in Virginia for over 20 years, but owners of the land in mention formed a privately held company and to that end Virginia Energy Resources (formerly Virginia Uranium) has been reported to have contributed tens-of-thousands to state lawmakers to assist in having the ban lifted. The Virginia Public Access Project reported that the company

also paid approximately $100,000 to 15 lobbyists at three firms to try to get a study approved. Soon after legislators rejected the study, company officials began searching for a way around the defeat. Officials noted that a study does not mean approval, yet opponents are adamant to stop the possibility altogether. The panel will study the possible effects on health and ecosystems, and the pollution that could result. The U.S. national Research Council will conduct the 18 month study which has a price tag of nearly $1.5 million. Opponents of the project note that uranium mining in the past has caused serious environmental problems, notable to drinking water, as well as having been linked to birth defects, cancer and chromosome abnormalities in the communities it borders.

Opponents in Virginia Beach are afraid that hurricanes and tropical storms could breach the mine’s waste facility and cause pollutants downstream toward their drinking-water source. Most uranium mining facilities are located in dryer climates. In 1979, the United Nuclear Corporation, a Virginia based company, had a dam holding back uranium mining waste in New Mexico burst, causing over 1,100 tons of toxic waste and 90 million gallons of contaminated water into a nearby river which supplied drinking water to a nearby community, which still remains contaminated. The National Academies of Sciences and Virginia Tech will study the potential environmental and public health impacts of the mining plans.

creatively. “ T h e National Y o u n g Scholars Program provides students with the opportunity to engage in handsHilton on interactive learning, while challenging them in an intellectually stimulating environment outside of the regular classroom,” said Dr. Marguerite C. Regan, Dean of Academic Affairs for the Program. NYSP gives students the chance to unleash their full learning potential as they further their interest in specific areas of study such as architecture, forensic science and medicine. Throughout the Program, young scholars engage in challenging coursework, gain a greater sense of independence and experience a renaissance of learning. The Program culminates with student-created projects tying in leadership skills learned with the discoveries made in their specific area of study. Activities such as embarking on a fascinating journey into the human body and solving a “whodunit” through work in a model forensics lab are just two highlights of the innovative curriculum. Simulation activities and role-play encourage scholars to develop their leadership skills, while introducing them to the concepts of team-building, problem-solving, public speaking and goal-setting. “NYSP taps into the natural curiosity that students at this young age already have,” said Dr. Regan. “This program will help them continue down a path toward a lifelong love of learning. NYSP is dedicated to identifying, inspiring and honoring the nation’s most promising elementary school students. The Program is comprised of highly successful practitioners in the field of elementary education who boast 25 years of experience in implementing successful education programs for students.

S U S A N K O M E N O RGANIZATION E X PA N D S B REAST C A N C E R R ESOURCES TO R OCKINGHAM C OUNTY EDEN - Susan G. Komen for the Cure, an international organization uniting breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, has expanded into Rockingham County. Morehead Memorial Hospital Foundation Executive Director Ed Holbrook said the Komen organization’s presence in the county will help provide breast cancer education and access to breast cancer screening and treatment. From 1999 through 2002, Rockingham County’s female breast cancer mortality rate was 31.4 deaths per 100,000, which was significantly higher than the state’s breast cancer mortality rate of 25.6 deaths per 100,000. Many of these deaths occurred because diagnosis of the disease occurred too late for effective treatment. Mr. Holbrook said local health care providers will now be able to apply for grants through their affiliated Komen chapter to help support breast cancer screening and care for low income women. The Winston Salem branch serves Rockingham County. Morehead Memorial Hospital provides chemotherapy and radiation therapy treatment to patients with breast cancer through the John Smith-Dalton McMichael Center. The hospital’s Lou McMichael Miracle Breast Imaging Suite at the Wright Diagnostic Center provides both conventional and digital mammography services to patients. Affiliation with Susan G. Komen for the Cure will be a benefit to the community on several levels: Screenings – Through the promotional efforts and support of the Komen organization, women in the hospital’s service area who currently are uninsured or have limited financial resources will be encouraged to seek such services. Treatment – Affiliation with Komen will provide access to breast cancer treatment options for patients who have limited financial resources or lack health coverage for such services. Many individuals in Rockingham County are unable to afford cancer treatment, and the hospital does not have the financial resources to treat these patients. The application for affiliation was led by a task force of representatives from Morehead Memorial Hospital, Annie Penn

The Walk, held to highlight the benefits of healthy activities and nutrition, featured representatives from the Reidsville YMCA and a massage therapist from the Eden Y. Walkers were offered snacks such as bananas, plain almonds and bottled water, and each received a pedometer calibrated to their gait so they could measure the distance traveled. All together, participants walked nearly 100 miles during the 5_ hour event. For one participant, Gwen Taylor at the Business & Technology Center, the walk held a special meaning.

M EET Y O U R E D E N CITY E M P L O Y E E S: Sam Reid – Police Department He’s no longer in the rookie stage, but Police Officer Sam Reid is still one of the fairly new faces at Eden PD. He’s been working as a patrol officer for a year and a half – spending most of his workdays keeping Eden’s citizens safe by issuing citations and serving warrants. Reid said he likes his job because of the satisfaction he gets from serving the people of Eden and because of the co-workers who serve along beside him. Reid is from Stokesdale and still lives there but Reid likes Eden’s “small-town attitude with a big-city potential to grow.” He would like to see that future growth include more businesses to boost the local economy. As for his own future, Reid looks forward to one day building a house and getting married. When he’s off duty, Reid enjoys being in the great outdoors hunting, fishing or playing golf. He also likes to read and spend time with Rufus, his Jack Russell terrier. Josh Jones – Police Department Josh Jones has been a patrol officer at Eden PD for 10 years. His typical workdays are filled with monitoring traffic and answering calls for service. The best part of the job, according to Jones, is the camaraderie he shares with the men on his shift. He hopes to one day become a supervisor of a shift. A lifelong resident of Eden, Jones values the city for its small-town feel but would like to see it grow to include more businesses.

At the urging of co-workers, Taylor began changing her diet, adding more vegetables and fruits. She is also gradually taking on more physical activity, including participation in the County Wellness Bowling League. “My ankle was fine,” she noted with relief. “It didn’t bother me at all.” Taylor described her main reason for participating in the walk. “I have a granddaughter, Sasha, who very much wants her Nana around as she's growing up,” she explained,” and that's incentive enough for me.” “I think,” she concluded, “that I’ll walk to the Governmental Center [from the Biz Tech Center] to pick up our mail tomorrow instead of driving as I usually do.”

REIDSVILLE Cooking with wild foods was an experience enjoyed by people from throughout the Southeast when the 35th annual N.C. Wildfoods Weekend was held at Rockingham County's Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Camp just outside Reidsville. People came from up and down the east coast and as far away as Iowa to fellowship with friends and to share their latest ideas and wildfood recipes. Many of those recipes are in the The 35th Anniversary North Carolina "Wildfoods Weekend" Cookbook, available for $12 from Debbie Midkiff, 919-489-2221 or Ages of the participants ranged from a five-year-old who loves sassafras and makes wildfood jellies to a 92-year-old Tennessee woman who comes each year with her son. The event is held the last full weekend of each April at the 4-H camp although other similar events are held in other areas throughout the year. Debbie Midkiff, one of this year's coordinators, explained the event is held this time of year because it is a "prime time for all these plants" and the group also can participate in Earth Day celebrations. Many of those who come have been attending for years and spent much of their time renewing friendships. Some spent time fishing in the large lake to catch fish for Saturday night's Wild Foods Banquet. Others hiked the trails through the woods looking for wild foods to prepare for Saturday night. Mike Krebill of Keokuk, Iowa, drove out from Keokuk, Iowa, and said he has been coming for years. He called the participants "down to earth" and said they all enjoy wild foods. During the Wild Social Hour, Chip Hulquist of Alcoa, Tenn. was announced as the favorite Wild Food Dish winner with his concotion of a wild greens/polenta dish. Saturday many went on foraging field trips to collect plants, including blossoms, roots, leaves and stems for that night's Wild Feast. The afternoon was filled with the chefs preparing foods in the following categories: Soups, Appetizers, Breads, Salads, Vegetables, Meat, Desserts and Beverages. This year, the PawPaw, a wild banana with the texture of a banana, had to been included in at least one dish in each category. Ten children between 10 and 13 made ice cream ranging from PawPaw to Blueberry to Blackberry. Five-year-old Hudson Grothe can identify quite a few wild edibles, said his mother Barbie J. Harper. He has made Sumac Lemonade for his classmates and has made violet jelly this spring. For further information, call Debbie Midkiff at 919-489-2221.

More than 100 people gathered at Oak Hills Golf and Event Center in Eden for its official grand opening on May 21. At an Eden Chamber of Commerce "After Hours" social, the ribbon was cut on the facililty that was formerly Meadow Greens Country Club. "It is wonderful to be opening a new chapter on this facility," says Kenan Wright, who purchased the foreclosed private club in the fall of 2008 with his father, Homer Wright, and David Tucker. Extensive repairs have been made, and the exterior facade has been updated. "Going from a private club to an event center allows us to serve more people," Wright says. "With our open focus, we are finding that Oak Hills apppeals to those outside of our area who would not have been attracted to

a membership facility." In additon to event space, Oak Hills has an 18-hole Ellis Maples golf course and a swimming pool complex, both of which have continued to operate since the purchase. "We have a great course that offers an affordable option for those who might not play on a regular basis, as well as a membership option for golfers who want to be on the links several times a week," Wright says. It has continued to be a popular course for tournament play. In the future, when the event center is not reserved for private events, Wright plans to hold

Health Tips Providing Solutions For Better Heath Can You "Turn Back the Clock" on Your Aging Skin? What person hasn't experienced this unwelcome jolt? You look in the mirror and ask, "Who is that? I don't feel that old." When you weren't looking (because mostly you're not), your skin was succumbing to the ravages of time. Age spots, wrinkles, blotchiness, or leather skin might be staring right back at you. It can come as quite a shock! Depending on the genes you inherit, your skin may age faster than the next person's. Yet lifestyle factors such as exposure to the sun also have a big impact on your skin. In fact, recent studies of twins show that as much as 40 percent of aging-related skin changes have nothing to do with your parents. Instead, they're from factors you can control. In addition to sun exposure – and gravity, which you can't control – other causes of skin aging include: • Smoking, which causes biochemical changes that speed aging • Certain sleeping positions, which create "sleep lines" etched onto the surface of your skin from pressing your face against the pillow each night • Repeated facial expressions, which can engrave wrinkles into your face • Being overweight, which may not always be obvious because extra weight can "fill out" your skin • Not using sunscreen, which protects against damaging ultraviolet light 1, 2

Kim Viers, RN, a nurse in Morehead’s Surgery Department, was named the 2010 recipient of the hospital’s Nurse of Excellence Award.

So, you can't exactly turn back the hands of time. But you can do some things to slow them down. Stay out of the sun during the hours of the day when the sun's rays are strongest – from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. When in the sun, protect yourself with a wide-brimmed hat, long sleeves, and sunscreen. Use sunscreen with ultraviolet A and B protection and a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. It's important to remember that skin cancer can also result from too much exposure to the sun. Of course you can ask a dermatologist about the wide range of options for anti-aging treatments. They include everything from topical treatments and injectable fillers to laser resurfacing and facelifts. 1 But know that it's easy to fall prey to the promises of instant youth. It's so inviting that Americans spend billions each year on skin products. Dermatologists suggest that you really do your homework before you buy skin products. That's because claims are often too good to be true. Also, just because a product is expensive doesn't mean it is necessarily better. And, not all products work for everyone. As a general rule, make sure the product you buy contains an active ingredient with evidence of anti-aging effectiveness. Some examples are retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids, azelaic acid, salicylic acid, and vitamins C and E applied directly on your skin. A good moisturizer is also important. If you're looking for an over-the-counter skin product, I can provide you an overview of the latest treatment options. Of course, your dermatologist and other skin specialists are other reliable sources. Remember that it's not just about what you put on your skin that matters. Good nutrition and drinking at least eight glasses of water each day can also make a big difference.

The City of Eden has selected GovDeals, a state-of- the-art online auction service for local, state and federal government agencies to conduct online sales of their surplus equipment and assets. We join the more than 600 governments across the country who have adopted GovDeals patented online auction solution that delivers prescreened and qualified buyers and which translates into higher prices for auctioned equipment and assets. This service will help us get the most money out of our surplus equipment by offering them to a wider base of buyers through the Internet. The bottom line is more money returned to the citizens. We can now sell assets and offer a convenient opportunity for more of our citizens to participate. Another positive effect is that storage costs and vehicle and equipment depreciation losses are substantially reduced. A recent study by the state of Tennessee showed that equipment and assets brought 47 percent more sold through GovDeals than via prior live public auctions. Once items are declared surplus by a resolution adopted by the City Council, they will be posted on the web and can be accessed through the City of Eden website at or directly through Click on the ‘Search by Zip’ link under the GovDeals logo and enter 27288. If we have any items up for auction, Eden will be the first location listed in the search results. Bidders can register free of charge at the GovDeals website.

After touring the county with Sheriff’s escort, they returned to Wolf Creek later for a hot dog lunch. A 50/50 raffle was also held during the event, with half the proceeds going to the shelter campaign. During registration for the ride, HOG member David Reece presented a plaque to County Commissioner Bobby Stanley, who also serves as Chairman of the Animal Shelter Advisory Committee. The plaque recognized the efforts of the committee in developing and funding the new Shelter. In his remarks, Stanley reminded those present how the Commissioners arrived at their decision to build a complete shelter including a spay neuter clinic and adoptions bonding room. “We looked at the whole thing very carefully,” Stanley noted, “and we thought that the only way to keep operations costs down over time was to provide a clinic for spaying and neutering animals.” During registration, riders were offered coffee and doughnuts, and shelter volunteers offered information on the shelter itself as well as on ways to contribute to shelter construction and operations costs. The Animal Protection Society of Rockingham County was also on hand with information on pet adoption opportunities and the Carolina Veterinary Assistance and Adoption Group had several adoptable cats and dogs on site.

S HERIFF HELPS S HERIFF On Monday, May 17, at about 2:30 a.m. the Graham County Sheriff’s Office was destroyed by fire. The State Bureau of Investigation is handling the investigation, and has recently made an arrest charging a man with intentionally setting the fire causing the devastating loss. Sheriff Sam Page expressed his concern for Sheriff Russell Moody and his loss. The fire comes as Graham County, which has the highest unemployment rate in the state at 17 percent, is grappling with budget shortfalls. On Friday, May 21, Sheriff Page received a donation from Rockingham County Commissioner James Kallam of a trailer nearly full of office equipment. The equipment included chairs, filing cabinets, tables and additional items that would be useful in re-establishing an office environment. Members of the Sheriff’s Office loaded the donation onto a trailer owned by the county and towed by a deputies’ personal truck. The donation was taken to Graham County later on Friday afternoon.

the years that certain things just don’t go down the drains. We understand the reasons why and wouldn’t think about doing it. Others may not care about the consequences of their actions because they do not see a direct impact on their lives. The problems that we are seeing, though, come from the whole population, those that don’t care and those that do but have not been educated about the new products that they are using. Most people don’t even realize the problems that they are causing unless they begin to see problems in their own home. With everyone having busier schedules nowadays, companies have begun to appeal to our need to simplify timely tasks. Most chores that we have to complete need to be done whether we have time or not. Most companies have figured this out and have come up with products that can do the job without any prep time or clean up afterwards. Welcome to the world of the “disposables.” Everywhere you turn, there is a product with a disposable wipe version from cleaning wipes and polishing wipes to even wipes for cleaning teeth and your face. These are all labeled “disposable” and if you read the fine print, you will find out that they are meant for disposal in the trash. This is where it gets tricky. Not every label makes this specification. Many of these products are involved in bathroom activities and for some reason, people think that they can just flush them down the toilet and that will take care of them even though it says to dispose of them in the trash. Many will actually specify “Do Not Flush,” but if you don’t read the label, you may not think about it. What is even worse are the items that say that they are flushable, such as flushable bathroom wipes. They usually specify that only 1 or 2 wipes can be safely flushed, but most people seem to miss this part of the product warning. They work so well that many people have begun substituting these for toilet paper. You may not see a direct problem with this use in your home, but many households have found their own lines clogged to the point that their toilet either won’t flush properly or it overflows in their home. That will definitely get your attention. What happens, though, if you never see any effect in your home? This does not mean that they are not causing a problem somewhere else. We have had a significant increase in problems throughout the city due to this

very thing. Most of our pump stations that carry sewer from households and businesses to the wastewater plant for treatment have had more down time lately due to clogged pumps and lines. A large amount will pass through most days, but as soon as a large rain or other large flow comes through, all of these wipes that may have been spread throughout the system get flushed through to the pumps all at once. This results in huge clogs that have to be dealt with immediately. Imagine being in a deep sleep at 2:00 in the morning and suddenly getting a call that a pump is stopped up with rags and wipes and needs to be cleaned out immediately to try to prevent any overflows from the sewer lines. This will definitely get the operators’ attention who are being awakened several nights a week to clean something that could have been prevented by residents understanding their impact. And who do you think has to pay for this overtime and call in time to do this work? This is part of the reason that water and sewer rates have to keep increasing. The city is responsible for any impact made to our environment and they cannot keep responding to these types of calls without affecting the overall work that they must do daily. We all realize that this is not a subject that anyone likes to discuss, and I have tried to approach it delicately in the past, but sometimes, things just have to be said like it is. TOILET PAPER is the only product on the market that is allowed to go down our drains. If everyone would realize this and do their part to help, we would see such a huge improvement in our collection system and treatment processes. As a treatment division we are spending too much time and money dealing with paper and plastic products that shouldn’t even be in the system. Then you add food and grease to that mix and you create a nightmare of a problem to deal with. We are doing all we can to protect our rivers and community, but we cannot control what city residents do in their homes. We have ordinances to address problems with industries and restaurants, but for the general population, all we can do is appeal to your sense of doing what is right. Most individuals feel that they are not causing a problem by themselves, but each one of us needs to realize that we are part of a whole. Every effort to reduce pollution is appreciated and when we all begin working together to correct these problems, we will see the improvements in the near future. Fewer sewer overflows mean cleaner trails, a higher quality water supply, and lower costs for repairs that are passed on to our consumers. Education is important and we must all remember to keep up with the little things that are sometimes missed every day. Read those labels, check those websites, and if all else fails, ask questions. We are ready with answers and if we don’t know them, we know how to find them. If you have any questions or need more information, call me at 6271009, ext. 130.

A TTEMPTED R O B B E RY On Tuesday, May 25, 2010 at 11:51 p.m., patrol officers responded to Gill’s Stop, a convenient store, located at 315 S. Van Buren Road in reference to an armed robbery. According to the victim, two black males wearing black bandanas concealing their faces entered the business with one suspect holding a baseball bat and a second suspect holding a gun. The suspect in possession of the baseball bat began to assault the victim. During that assault, the suspect armed with the handgun, attempted to discharge the weapon several times and the firearm failed to fire. Both suspects ran from the store and fled the premises in a vehicle traveling south on Van Buren Road. The victim (business owner), Inam Rehman Gill, was treated and released from Morehead Hospital. If anyone has any information related to the attempted robbery at Gill’s Stop please contact the Eden Police at 623-9755 or 623-9240.

Amanda Rorrer, Contributing writer

Dear Twenties, I am writing you this letter to tell you goodbye. I know we’ve been together for an entire decade, but Thirty will be here soon, and quite frankly, I think it’s time that I move on. At times, it really is hard to imagine life without you, but like it or not, you must let me go. I’ll never forget you. After all, we went through quite a lot together. I remember when we first met. We thought we ruled the world, you and I. Everything was there for the taking and we set off on quite a few adventures. Remember when we moved all the way to Louisiana? Just me and you, we set off down that long Interstate 10 in that little Chevy that took us all the way to Cajun Country

and our first apartment. Looking back, I wonder how we lived off of Raman Noodles and Mac-n-cheese for all that time. Oh Twenties, I look back on that time we spent in Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas and I wonder how we ever made it home. Those were good times, and it was tough when they ended, but there were greater things in store for us. We tried to make a home there, but we knew all along where my heart was. That’s why at 23, we came back to good ole North Carolina, where people don’t love me because they have to…they love me because they want to. At 24 we took that big walk down the aisle. There was a handsome man waiting there when we

BIBLICAL REFLECTIONS OF NATURE By Dr. Mark Gaffney, Stoneville, The Dove Wings of Solitude “O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, Gaffney let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely” (Song of Solomon 2:14) The dove makes her nest in the high caves. The Bible also states that her nest is “in the secret places of the stairs”. I love the language here. David often talked about the “secret places” of God. It is in the secret places that God reveals Himself the most. One must fear God in order to enter into the solitude of rest. (Psalm 25:14) “The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant”. The secret places of the stairs are where we can find shelter in times of trouble. “For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock” (Psalm 27:5). “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91:1). In the lofty mountain crags, the dove finds darkness its place of refuge. Spiritual man can find God in the midst of darkness as well; for God has made darkness His secret place. “He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies” (Psalm 18:11). In the darkness of man’s frailties is where God shines as a beacon of hope. God has made darkness and light alike unto Him and thus His actions towards us are the same. Man is beckoned to the secret places of the stairs, through our communion with Him. (Matthew 6:6) “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou

hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; (or the secret places of the stairs) and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly”. What a wonderful display of affection and effectiveness of God through prayer. I would now like to draw your attention to the second part of the verse. Notice who is doing the taking; it’s the Lord. God is calling the dove or the “church” to worship Him in the stillness of His presence. God said, “let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely”. He longs to hear from His children; their worries, their frustrations, their fears, their joys and their victories. Each tear that rolls down our cheeks are preserved and recorded unto God. (Psalm 56:8) “Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?” Like a father who loves his children unconditionally, so the Lord pities His children. God relishes in each victory, each jubilant smile and each miracle, all are God’s to be displayed back to Him. Turn your face to the sunlight of His grace. Turn your ears to the voice of many waters and turn your soul to the Creator of all the universe.

arrived. By the way, I think that was the smartest thing you and Rorrer I ever did. At 25, more changes came our way. There were diaper changes and late night feedings; and all the joys of Motherhood. 26 and 27 went by so fast that it seems I blinked and they were gone. I should have realized then that I was beginning to outgrow you, Twenties. Life just changed for me. I mean, as a wife and mother and student, I just didn’t have time for all the childish things that used to occupy our time. At 28, I realized just how important family really is, even though I thought I already knew. It was pretty mature of you, Twenties, to help me realize that we no longer have time for bitterness or petty quarrels. And, I have to say thank you for helping me see that this body of mine will give out one day, so I have to take care of it now. No, I’m not talking about wrinkle creams and crash diets, but I am talking about sunscreen, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle. It’s ok, I think Thirty will like running just as much as we do. There are some things a girl just can’t do without. At 29, we finally graduated from college and earned that degree we worked so hard for. It seems like it took us forever, but all the while we had a goal and we stuck to it. I’m glad we did. But you see, now we have accomplished all we set out to do. It’s time for new plans, new goals, new dreams; and I have outgrown you. Life is short and I must do all I can in the time I have; so I must let you go, too. Don’t worry, you’ll find some other young girl with her whole life ahead of her, and you two will get along fine. (For the next ten years.) Oh, don’t try to tell me I can’t make it without you or that I’m getting old. Gray hairs don’t scare me; that’s the one thing there is a cure for! So go now, Twenties, you’re holding me back! I’ll never forget you, but I need this change in my life. Love, Me

From The Desks Of CITY HALL B RIEF OVERVIEW O F THE C ITY O F E D E N’S FY 2010-11 BUDGET By Brad Corcoran, City Manager

• The combined budgets for FY 2010-11 equal $24,840,600. This is only $47,130 or 0.19% more than the combined budgets in FY 2001-02 – 10 years ago. • The initial requests submitted by the various department/division heads were further reduced by the city manager by a total of $4,022,100. • Thirteen of the 20 departments/divisions with personnel (or 65%) are being allocated the same or less money in FY 201011 than what they were appropriated in FY 2009-10. • The budget is balanced and does not use any money from existing or anticipated fund balances. • The budget maintains the current tax rate of $0.62. • The budget does not eliminate any city programs and/or services. • General Fund revenues have only grown at an annual pace of 1.76% for the past 10 years. • The budget does not include funds for cost-of-living or performance based merit increases – for a second year in a row. • The budget eliminates three full-time positions through attrition. These include Secretary III, Police Records Clerk II and Relief Firefighter/Driver Operator. Without the 2 police officers who receive 100% of their funding through the federal stimulus bill, we would have a total of 178

full-time employees. This is 25 fewer full-time positions than what existed during FY 1995-96. Over the course of the past nine plus years we have made significant reductions to the size of our staff which has resulted in an annual savings of at least $1,256,474 per year or $0.17 on our existing tax rate. • The budget includes $250,000 within both the General Fund and the Water & Sewer Fund as an un-appropriated contingency for unforeseen declines in revenue and/or unanticipated expenditures. • Due to a weakened economy and a lack of available revenues 10 different capital outlay initiatives requested by various department/division heads were eliminated totaling $1,177,100. • The budget includes a total of $2,776,500 within the Water & Sewer Fund for 23 different capital outlay related initiatives. • The budget includes a total of $2,171,000 in principal and interest debt service payments on a wide variety of different initiatives. Of this total, $1,367,000 is earmarked for the debt service payments on the 2007 and 2008 Water/Sewer Loans totaling $14,375,755 and the 2008 General Fund Loan totaling $1,228,000. • The budget includes $77,200 to pay for the city’s obligations in reference to existing performance

agreements with local industries (total of 3) and $102,600 to pay for the city’s obligations in reference to existing agreements based on our current water and sewer extension policy (total of 5). • The budget does not include any funds for the design, engineering and construction of any water/sewer lines associated with the Mega Park Project in Pittsylvania County, Va. We are continuing to aggressively pursue this project. Any funds that will be needed for this initiative not funded by third parties will have to come from an installment loan, available fund balance within the Water & Sewer Fund or a combination of both revenue options. • The budget includes $26,000 for the initial stages of the NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) Phase II Stormwater Requirements which is an unfunded federal mandate that requires municipalities to implement a comprehensive stormwater management program. • The budget message notes that our city staff has worked diligently during the past 12 months to access and secure grants and stimulus funding for a variety of projects and initiatives within the city. A total of approximately $3,174,344 in funding will have been received once everything has been completed.





H AV E N E W RADIO SYSTEM By Kevin Taylor, IT and Communications Manager

The Eden Police and Fire departments have joined the rest of the public safety agencies in Rockingham County in the adoption of the VIPER 800 MHz radio system. This radio system replaces the existing 400 MHz police radio band and the 40 MHz fire radio bands. The main goal of the VIPER system is to allow all public safety organizations throughout the county and the state to communicate in the event of an emergency on a single radio system. VIPER, which stands for Voice Interoperability Plan for Emergency Responders, provides an interconnected network of dedicated radio towers throughout the state. The backbone of the system has been developed and is maintained by the N.C. State Highway Patrol. VIPER utilizes a Motorola SmartNet II trunking radio system which uses a bank of 800 MHz radio frequencies that are randomly assigned on an as needed basis when police or fire personnel key their mic. As a result, there is no longer a single radio frequency in use by our agencies and most scanners will be unable to receive the radio signals from the VIPER system. If citizens wish to monitor police and fire radio traffic, a trunk tracking scanner will be required. VIPER also enables the Police Department to designate radios used by certain special investigative and response units to be encrypted. This means that even a trunk tracking scanner will be unable to monitor the radio traffic between those units. This will provide highly secure communications for sensitive enforcement operations. Interoperable communications was identified in the General Assembly's Criminal Justice Information Network report of 1995 as a critical need for public safety agencies when responding to emergencies. After the attack on the World Trade Center in New York on Sept. 11, 2001, it became even clearer that public safety officials needed to have the ability to communicate with one another on a single radio. Public safety officials in North Carolina should be able to communicate directly with other public safety officials without having to relay the message through a communications center. When put in place, interoperable communications will benefit all public safety agencies when dealing with daily emergency calls or large scale disasters. This will make fire, rescue, and law enforcement agencies better able to serve the citizens of North Carolina. More information can be found on the N.C. Crime Control website at Click on ‘Citizens’ and then click on ‘VIPER’.



SEWER MANHOLE By Mark Bullins, C&D Superintendent

The City of Eden, as any other municipality, relies heavily on its citizens to find and report problems with the sanitary sewer system. There are occasions when the sewer lines back up from blockages or for other reasons, causing manholes to overflow. It is impossible for city crews to know when most overflows occur without the help of citizens; however, it is not unusual to have a citizen call in on Monday to report a manhole that was seen overflowing Friday evening. The city needs you to help by calling to report these sewer overflows as soon as possible. It is extremely important to contact the city immediately – even after normal working hours – if you should find an overflowing manhole, smell a STRONG sewer odor when you are outside or notice a pump station alarm going off. Once notified, a city crew should respond quickly, within an hour. The sooner city crews are made aware that there is a problem the sooner it can be dealt with, hopefully preventing any further risk to public health and the environment. Remember, sanitary sewage can be a health hazard. If you find an overflow, be very careful to avoid contact with sewer materials, which may carry infectious diseases such as hepatitis and salmonella.

Heaven On Earth

Nona Craft, Educator, Leaksville Spray Elementary Eden, North Carolina

I was just thinking, as a child my mother used to give me cod liver oil. Talk about gag reflect? Yuk! But guess what? I can not remember getting a cold and I grew up in the North! Coincidence? I think not. I remember that she used to tell us to make sure that the final part of our shower should be with the water as cold as we could stand it (and a cold splash if we had taken a bath). Now I hear it is good for your lymph system and immune system to do that! “Start and end your day with a glass of warm water” mom used to say. At a health symposium as an adult I listened to a world renown physician say that drinking a glass of water before you go to bed will reduce your chance of having a stroke by as much as 45%!! When I was a child we played outside until the sun started to go down. I mean running around, climbing trees, riding our bikes kind of playing, not sitting in front of a screen watching figures run and jump, WE were doing the action. WE were the action figures! You rarely saw a child that was not a healthy size back then. We also had chores. Remember that? I mean not just inside but outside work as well. We were not afraid of it nor did we whine about it (not at least so our parents could hear it). Hard work and wholesome play filled each day. There was no deficit in our attention. We slept soundly at night. We were tired! We also read back then. I vividly remember my father reading the newspaper as he drank a cup of coffee in the morning when he came home after working 11 - 7. I remember my mother reading to us from the Bible every morning before she went to work and we went to school. I saw my parents reading in the evening quite often. Imagine that! I also love to read. I wonder if there is a connection? I ate vegetables as a child, still do today. I ate green beans when I was young. I ate them until I grew to like them. We ate pinto beans, northern beans, lima beans, kidney beans. We ate every bean there is I believe.

Turns out they are very good for you. We ate homemade cornbread and fresh caught fish. My point? Maybe some of the old ways promoted being healthy. Maybe we should revisit some of these practices for ourselves and our families. Give it some thought (while you take a walk outside after dinner). I was just thinking.

For The Fun Of It Creation God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired of God. "Where have you been?" God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downward through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made." Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?" "It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance." "Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused. God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Balance in all things," God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice." The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?" "Ah," said God "That's Washington State, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, plains, and coulees. The people from Washington State are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats, and carriers of peace." Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then proclaimed, "What about balance, God? You said there would be balance." God smiled, "There is another Washington...wait until you see the idiots I put there.. Pastor A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door. When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, Genesis 3:10." Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock." Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid, for I was naked."

The Bottle Of Wine For all of us who are married, were married, wish you were married, or wish you weren't married, this is something to smile about the next time you see a bottle of wine: Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride. With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally. 'What in bag?' asked the old woman. Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, 'It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.' The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said: 'Good trade ..... Redneck Vacations Billy Bob and Lester were talking one afternoon. Billy Bob says, “Ya know, I reckon I’m about ready for a vacation. Only this year I’m gonna do it a little different. The last few years, I took your suggestions as to where to go. “Three years ago you said to go to Hawaii. I went to Hawaii and Betty Sue got pregnant. Then two years ago, you told me to go to the Bahamas, and Betty Sue got pregnant again. Last year you suggested Tahiti and darned if Betty Sue didn’t get pregnant again.” Lester asks Billy Bob, “So, what you gonna do this year that’s different?” Billy Bob says, “This year I’m taking Betty Sue WITH me.”

Flying Pet A couple shared their apartment with a parakeet named “Nicky.” The exterminator was scheduled to come, so they put Nicky in the bedroom and hung a sign on the door: “Please skip this room. Do not open door. Pet flies.” The exterminator came. On his receipt he wrote this comment: “Finished all of the apartment except room with pet flies.”

Why Dogs Can’t Use Computers He’s distracted by cats chasing his mouse. SIT and STAY were hard enough; CUT and PASTE are out of the question. Saliva-coated floppy disks refuse to work. Three words: carpal paw syndrome. Involuntary tail wagging is a dead give-away that he’s browsing instead of working. The fire hydrant icon is simply too frustrating. He can’t help attacking the screen when he hears “You’ve Got Mail”. It’s too messy to “mark” every Web site he visits. The FETCH command isn’t available on all platforms. He can’t stick his head out of Windows. Idiot Sightings • When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. 'Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'It's open!' His reply: 'I know. I already got that side.' • My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.' He said he was sorry, but they only had iceburg lettuce.

Things To Ponder 1. Is it good if a vacuum really sucks? 2. Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand? 3. If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know? 4. If Webster wrote the first dictionary, where did he find the words? 5. Why do we say something is out of whack? What is a whack? 6. Why does "slow down" and "slow up" mean the same thing? 7. Why does "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean the same thing? 8. Why do "tug" boats push their barges? 9. Why do we sing "Take me out to the ball game" When we are already there? 10. Why are they called " stands" when they are made for sitting? 11.. Why is it called "after dark" when it really is "after light"? 12. Doesn't "expecting the unexpected" make the unexpected expected? 13. Why are a "wise man" and a "wise guy" opposites? 14. Why do "overlook" and "oversee" mean opposite things? 15. Why is "phonics" not spelled the way it sounds? 16. If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay you to do it? 17. If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting? 18. If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular? 19. If you are cross-eyed and have dyslexia, can you read all right? 20. Why is bra singular and panties plural? 21. Why do you press harder on the buttons of a remote control When you know the batteries are dead? 22. Why do we put suits in garment bags and garments in a suitcase? 23. How come abbreviated is such a long word? 24. Why do we wash bath towels? Aren't we clean when we use them? 25. Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle? 26. Why do they call it a TV set when you only have one? 27.Christmas - What other time of the year do you sit in front of a dead tree and eat candy out of your socks? 28. Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway? Let Sleeping Dogs One afternoon, I was in the backyard hanging the laundry when an old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home. But when I walked into the house, he followed me, sauntered down the hall and fell asleep in a corner. An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next day he was back. He resumed his position in the hallway and slept for an hour. This continued for several weeks. Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: “Every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.” The next day he arrived with a response pinned to his collar: “We have ten children - he’s trying to catch up on his sleep.” Training the Cat The couple’s young daughter had adopted a stray cat. To her mother’s distress, the cat began to use the back of their new sofa as a scratching post. “Don’t worry,” her husband reassured her. “I’ll have him trained in no time.” They watched for several days as he patiently “trained” their new pet. Whenever the cat scratched, he deposited the cat outdoors to teach him a lesson. The cat learned quickly. For the next 16 years, whenever he wanted to go outside, he scratched the back of the sofa.

Happy Father’s Day! Congratulations Graduates! Chicken... Our teacher asked us what our favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried Chicken." She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, eeveryone else in the class laughed. My parents told me to always be truthful and honest, and I am. Fried Chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad

what happened, and He said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love Animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what Happened, and he laughed too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The Farmers Market At The Eden Mall! IceCream & Treats!

Com ing In June!

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal Was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, just like she'd Asked the other children. So I told her it was because you could make Them into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal's office Again. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am. Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what Famous person we admire most. I told her, "Colonel Sanders". Guess where I am now... Aging Three old guys are out walking. First one says, 'Windy, isn't it?' Second one says, 'No, it's Thursday!' Third one says, 'So am I. Let's go get a beer..'

Understanding Women I know I'm not going to understand women. I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, and still be afraid of a spider. Idiot Sighting We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems

was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener. I thought for a minute, then said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head negatively, and said, 'Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, 'NO, it's not.' Four is larger than two.' We haven't used Sears repair since.

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...

From the Office of Rep. Nelson Cole: I am going to make the prediction that there will be no tax increases in this year’s budget. Education, unfortunately, will take a tremendous hit along with Health and Human Services. In addition, you will see decreases in the crime control and public safety budgets. Collectively, these areas of appropriations constitute approximately 95% of the total General Fund budget. As you know, transportation appropriations are funded separately from the General Fund budget. This budget will be about the same as last year’s and will total approximately $3 billion from state revenue. One of the biggest issues in the coming year will be the establishment of Governor Perdue’s “Mobility Fund.” This fund will be created using revenue that is already in place to build projects throughout the state that are deemed to be extremely critical, including the Yadkin River Bridge in Salisbury. From the rural perspective, the advantage of this fund is that it will not remove the support needed in counties like Rockingham all over North Carolina.
