The Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) announces a Stewardship Fund to support its Stewardship Task Force, which is working to oppose a proposed landfill beside the Dan River near Eden, NC. The task force has engaged a legal authority on landfill issues to work with DRBA's staff and task force members to oppose the development of the landfill proposed by PBK Holdings, LLC. Donations to DRBA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. All individuals, groups, and businesses that wish to join in this effort are encouraged to contact DRBA at www.danriver.org, or 336-627-6270. Checks may be mailed to DRBA, 413 Church Street, Suite 401, Eden, NC 27288. Based in Oak Ridge, NC, PBK Holdings, LLC, has released plans to build a multi-state private landfill on the Whitt Family Farms at the intersection of Harrington Highway and the Dan
River. The task force was appointed to support DRBA's June 8 resolution opposing the plan, noting that a landfill bordering four miles of the Dan River has "high potential" to contaminate the river. The Dan River is the source of drinking water for residents of Eden and all customers of Dan River Water, Inc., which serves much of Rockingham County. MillerCoors Brewing Company, with more than 600 employees, also receives its water from the Dan River 2.6 miles downstream from the proposed landfill. Several groups have publicly stated their opposition to the landfill, including the City of Eden, the Town of Wentworth, the Rockingham County Democratic Party, Will of the People, Rockingham County Association of REALTORS®, and the Rockingham County Solid Waste Committee. Many groups find this proposed landfill to be completely inconsistent with the county land use plan, inconsis-

Auditorium Seat Replacement Project 19th month Gloria T. Best
“Goodness is the only investment that never fails,” says Jo Petty in Apples of Gold. The donor replacement seats for the Golden Anniversary 2011 of the MHS Duane Best Auditorium will extend that goodness for many decades. May we applaud again the Leaksville School Board who in1959 broke ground for the most modern school auditorium in Rockingham County. Now, their relatives and others have furthered their service by donating new seats ($150 each). These are in memory of Chairman Melvin Moore, Welsford Bishopric, Zell D. Ford, Dallas Gwynn, and R. I. Smith, Jr. Also remembered are Superintendent John Hough and Principal Wendell Newlin. In addition, two other former school superintendents have advanced the new seat progress.

City to hold first citizens’ academy By Sheralene Thompson, City Clerk
Have you ever wondered how things work in your city government? Have you questioned where your tax dollars go? Do you think you have what it takes to make a difference in our city but you don’t know how? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the City of Eden Citizens’ Academy is for you. Beginning Sept. 1, the City of Eden will host a Citizens’ Academy Program. The purpose of the program is to improve understanding, communication and cooperation between local government and those it serves. The sessions are designed to help citizens learn about the City of Eden and the services it provides. Through lectures, hands-on activities and interaction, participants will gain insight into how the city operates on a day-to-day basis, as well as how it plans for the future. Participants will learn how city government affects the quality of life in Eden. Citizens will be interested in attending for many reasons including an expectation to become better acquainted with the city and its programs and services, learning about the policies and procedures of city government, meeting new people or finding ways to volunteer in the
community. Participants may be representatives from a cross-section of citizens – new and lifelong residents, professionals, homemakers, business owners, retirees, civic group leaders and high school students – all of whom share an interest in becoming better informed about how a
address, phone number, e-mail address, and employer name and address, but they also ask for the applicant’s birthplace, length of time living in Eden and Rockingham County, interests and accomplishments, and expectations from the program. There is no cost to individuals who attend the sessions, but the city strongly encourages participants to commit the time to attend each program. The sessions begin on Sept. 1 and will be held each Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. for 10 weeks at various city locations. Site visits will include trips to the public works, police and fire departments, parks and recreational areas. Since many participants will arrive directly from work without eating, a light meal will also be provided each week. The program is truly a look behind the scenes of local government, pointing out its role and limitations, as well as a glimpse into the long-term planning that makes Eden what it is today. Applicants must apply by Aug. 22 in order to be considered for the 2011 session. Applications are available at City Hall, the Eden Chamber of Commerce, the Eden Public Library or apply online at www.edennc.us.
The sessions are designed to help citizens learn about the City of Eden and the services it provides.
city operates. Interested participants should submit an application and will be selected on a first-come basis. Participants must be at least 18 years old and class size will be limited to 20 participants. When class capacity has been met, the excess applications are carried over to the next academy. Applications request standard information, such as a name,

“Rockingham County night” offered at Snow Camp Outdoor Theatre Continuting in August, Snow Camp Outdoor Theatre in Alamance County will be having “Rockingham County night” The deal is if you bring 5 non-perishable food items your ticket will be $5.00. The entire food collection will go back the counties local food bank! Please come out and also pass this among to family and friends. Below is some information about the shows: Mark Sumner’s, Pathway to Freedom is an exciting account of the struggles and heroism of the 1840’s and 1850’s along the “Underground Railroad” from North Carolina to Indiana. Both individuals and some organized religions fought slavery in the legislature and on the farms, while some, like Levi and Katie Coffin of Guilford County led volunteers and freed slaves in
clandestine efforts to help escaping slaves to freedom. The play centers on George Vestal, son of a slave-owning family, and how and why he becomes a worker for the “Underground Railroad”. Events trace the actions of slave families in their hope of gaining freedom and dignity. It was a time in the life of the country when man levels of opinion conflicted with economic pressure. The rich music in the play is based on the music of the period and enriches the emotion that flow during the play. A story of conflict of action, support human dignity, and it urges us to work for what ought to be. It is a play about family courage. It helps to explain our past to better our futures. Performances: Aug. 5, 11, 13. www.snowcampdrama.com
DRBA continued from page 1 tent with the character of the area, and inconsistent with development ordinance regulations. Business leaders have noted that the presence of a landfill on the river would "shut the door" on other businesses and industries that might choose to locate in Rockingham County because of its clean water. DRBA exists to preserve and promote the Dan River Basin's resources. The resolution states that contamination from a landfill "would jeopardize public health, safety, and welfare" by "polluting the drinking water supply, making the water unsafe for recreation, and causing costly shutdown of residential and industrial users of the river." To read the full resolution, to donate to the Stewardship Fund, and to help preserve and promote our rivers by becoming a member of the Dan River Basin Association, visit www.danriver.org.

Letters to the Editor
640 Washington Street, Eden
WHAT PART OF "SHALL" DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND? As everyone in Rockingham County now knows, an individual from Oak Ridge, North Carolina (together with one or more others unknown to us), is demanding a permit to allow the building of a huge commercial trash dump near the banks of the Dan River. This is nothing Rockingham County needs; we already have our own landfill. According to information furnished by the applicant, he is anticipating 500 trailer truck loads of trash per day. This trash could come from any part of the country. We feel that this project, if allowed, will cause extensive, far reaching and long lasting major damage to Rockingham County. The landfill may be expected to operate for approximately 40 years. This would result in hauling millions of tons of somebody else's trash into Rockingham County. Nearly all landfills eventually leak. If this one leaks, it could ruin the water quality of the City of Eden, Miller Brewing Company and all other water users down river from the dump. Further, consider the devastating effect 500 loaded trailer trucks a day (and 500 empties leaving) would have on the transportation and possibly roads in our county. THERE ARE LAWS in North Carolina pertaining to the procedure for opening such a dangerous facility. Our LAW provides as follows: "A person who intends to apply for a new permit, the renewal of a permit, or a substantial amendment to a permit for a sanitary landfill SHALL obtain, prior to applying for a permit, a franchise for the operation of the sanitary landfill from each local government having jurisdiction over any part of the land on which the sanitary landfill and its appurtenances are located or to be located." The FIRST requirement is that someone who intends to try to get permission to open a landfill must first negotiate a franchise contract with the county. In this case, the applicant has attempted to apply for a special use permit without even discussing a franchise agreement with the county. Apparently, they have no intention of complying with the LAW. There is nothing that forces the county to enter such a contract. Will of the People, working with others, intends that they not be forced. We have met with county commissioners and we have met with the county attorney. We do not know why they have not demanded that the applicant do what the LAW says must absolutely be done before going forward. We must assume that the applicant is familiar with the North Carolina LAW, so there must be some reason he thinks that if he gets past the hurdle of having to obtain a franchise contract that they can go forward without a contract or force us to
In The Historic Olde Leaksville Shopping District
later grant them one. We feel it is absolutely necessary that this application be opposed in every possible way because that is what should be done and what almost every person in Rockingham County wants. We do not even know who is behind this matter, but it is certainly possible that the applicant is "fronting" for someone else. The county commissioners work for us and, in effect, so does the county attorney. We are not inclined to keep begging our officials to comply with the LAW that plainly tells them what they must do. We insist that the applicant be immediately informed that he is going to be required to comply
with the LAW and not allowed to run rough shod over our county. This is a matter that is huge and dangerous and capable of injuring us far into the future. Only a fool would let this happen if it can be avoided. This county has its own landfill and neither needs nor wants a mega landfill damaging the county for generations to come. What part of "shall" don't they understand? Very truly yours, Thomas S. Harrington, Chairman Will of the People

A Tribute To Our Friend, Bunnie Slaughter Bunnie Slaughter opened Bunnie’s Flowers in 1986. Her mission was to provide the best service to her customers and the community. No matter the occasion - Birthday, Bouquets, Sweetheart Wishes, Get Well Soon or Funeral Pieces she put her special touch into each arrangement. Bunnie always greeted you with a smile and went above and beyond to please each customer. She had a special relationship with everyone who met her. You were always a friend to Bunnie, not just a customer. She had planned on retiring someday from her business, but could not imagine each day without her customers and doing what she enjoyed so much. Although the business was sold two years ago, Bunnie remained the manager. As a tribute to Bunnie Slaughter, the owners will continue the work Bunnie loved to do each day, and the business will remain open at the current location. We all miss her and promise that Bunnie’s Legacy will continue at Bunnie’s Flowers and Things.

Special Victims Grant The Governor’s Crime Commission reports completing another successful grant awards process. The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office has been approved to receive a grant award for ROCKINGHAM COUNTY SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT. Funding for the project has been authorized in the amount of $91,433.00. For the next two years, this will fund an investigator of crimes targeting domestic violence with child/elderly victims, including crimes of sexual assault. This is an in-kind match of funds, meaning, we will utilize existing equipment and office space. Sheriff Sam Page…“This grant will assist our commitment to safer communities for families across Rockingham County, with emphasis on our victims of domestic violence against our children and elderly.”
Drowning at Belews Lake John Wendall Johnston, 46, of 1838 Angell Road in Madison picked up a friend named Rhonda Shaffer around 10:30 pm on July 16th. They intended to go sailing at Belews Lake. They parked their car at the Pine Hall Lake access area and were picked up by a friend with a sail boat. They had sailed to the middle of the lake and met up with two friends on another boat. The group docked on shore of an island and decided to go swimming a few feet from the shore. Shaffer got out of the water to retrieve a towel, leaving John in the water a few feet from shore. He was playing with a dog that had been on one of the boats. Shortly afterwards, she turned her attention to the lake, but was not able to find John. After being unable to locate John, emergency personnel were called. A search was made by the Rockingham and Stokes County Sheriff’s Offices, Huntsville Fire Department, Eden, Reidsville, and Madison Rescue Squads attempted to locate him. About 6 am, John’s body was recovered. His family has been notified on the apparent drowning. John Johnston was owner of Stokey’s Pizza.
Man Convicted Of Escape Paul Maurice Williamson, 40, pled guilty to felony escape in Rockingham County Superior Court on July 5, 2011. Williamson was sentenced as a Habitual Felon to 90-117 months in prison by Judge Stuart Albright. On April 25, 2009, Williamson was being held in custody in the old rockingham County Jail on the charge of felony probation violation when he removed a ceiling tile from his jail cell, climbed into the ceiling and over a cinder block wall to get into the facility's laundry room. While in the laundry room, Williamson obtained a t-shirt and placed it over his jail issued jumpsuit. Williamson then escaped the jail when he joined a group that had entered the jail for regular visitation with inmates. Williamson rode the elevator down from the jail floor with the group and exited the facility. Williamson was later apprehended on April 28, 2009 in Guildford County. Williamson also pled guilty to seven counts of Felony Breaking and Entering and seven counts of Felony Larceny. Williamson had two prior convictions for escape.
Assistant County Manager / Finance Director To Retire Assistant County Manager/Finance Director Mike Apple announced July 13, 2011 that, effective October 1. he will retire from his position with Rockingham County. Apple, 58 has served Rockingham County for 27 years.He was hired as the County's first Assistant Finance Officer in March, 1984, took over as Finance Officer in 1990 and was promoted to Assistant County Manager in 2003. "Quite honestly, when I first took the job in 1984 I never thought I would stay here long enough to retire. But as time passed, the challenge of helping the county move forward became very rewarding and so 27 years later i'm still here," Apple stated. "though it has been challenging at times to provide the resources needed by departments in order to provide services, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the dedicated department heads and employees, as well as various Boards of Commissioners and County Managers over the years," he continued. Apple also stated "Although there has been some speculation as to why i'm retiring now, it's simply that I have 30 years in the retirement system and I look forward to taking a little time off and then pursuing other opportunities. My only regret is that Tom Robinson, the County Manager, and I are retiring a month apart. We have long

Debt Ceiling Proposal Could Cost Morehead Memorial Hospital over $1 million
EDEN—Morehead Memorial Hospital could lose more than $1 million in cash if the Obama Administration and Congress cut Medicare and Medicaid funding in a deal to raise the debt ceiling. The President and Congress are considering massive cuts in hospital payments for service to Medicare and Medicaid patients. These cut would cost North Carolina hospitals $671 million. Medicare and Medicaid are government insurance programs that cover about two-thirds of patients in North Carolina hospitals. Medicare and Medicaid payments account for about 65.5% of Morehead Memorial Hospital’s revenue. Hospital President and CEO W. Carl Martin said the estimated impact of the proposed cuts to Morehead is $1.1 million. He is urging citizens to contact their Congressional representatives and tell their leaders not to cut Medicare and Medicaid. “The downturn in the economy has forced Morehead Memorial Hospital to reduce

The backpacks will be available while supplies last. A tent will be set up outside the pharmacy for those wishing to pick up their backpacks on Monday, August 8th, from 10:00am-6:00pm and afterwards inside the pharmacy. Eden Drug is open Monday-Friday 9:00am-9:00pm and 1:00pm6:00pm on Sunday. While the program is geared for K-5 students, no one will be turned away. This year, the backpacks will be multiple colors to accommodate families with more than one student. Each will have a zipper pull with a place for students to place their identification. The Eden Chamber of Commerce will be collecting school supplies to fill the backpacks through-August 12th at their 678 S. Van Buren Road location. You can drop off supplies from 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday-Friday. Items that are needed include: glue sticks,

Employees of MillerCoors are purchasing and donating school supplies and Wal-Mart is donating $200 to this effort. Eden Drug Owner Pete Crouch is pleased at how successful the program was last year and is happy to repeat it again in 2011. “This is a way that Eden Drug can help our community by partnering with other businesses and offering those who need a helping hand a way to provide for their students. It was remarkable to see the sincere appreciation p e o p l e expressed last year.” “We invite businesses, civic groups and individuals to help fill the backpacks for our elementary school students. Together we can make a difference by providing the essential items our students need to be successful in school,” stated Wood.

Health Tips Providing Solutions For Better Heath Health Problems that Spread at School Kids should learn to share, right? But, gee whiz…. When it comes to bugs and other contagious health problems in school, does your kid have to get everything that's passed around? Packed into a classroom and messing around on a playground or locker room, kids do tend to share lots of health problems in school. What can you do about it? When should you be concerned? Here are a few things to think about. Does head lice top your list of concerns? Although these creepy insects might disgust you, it may help to know that they don't cause diseases or other health problems – other than maybe a red, rash-like reaction. Of course, that doesn't mean you want to ignore them since they spread easily. Follow up with the doctor if your child complains of an itchy scalp or you catch sight of tiny white eggs firmly attached at hair roots. These are often confused with dandruff. Your child's doctor may prescribe a treatment and other over-the-counter (OTC) shampoos or rinses. Follow directions closely and be sure to ask me if you have any questions. Viral infections such as chicken pox are common, too. Many are contagious before skin lesions appear. Be sure to keep your child home until the sixth day after the rash appears unless all lesions are dry and crusted over. To prevent this infection, you can have your child vaccinated. “Fifth disease” is another viral disease. It causes a lacy rash on arms and redness on cheeks that looks like the result of a well-placed slap. Unless your child feels too sick, there's no need to stay home. That's because the disease only spreads before symptoms appear. However, tell the school so female employees of childbearing age can be notified. Fifth disease can severely hurt a developing fetus. Although there are many kinds of hepatitis, hepatitis A is the most common type in children. This virus is in blood and bowel movements, so hand washing is really important to prevent its spread. A child with hepatitis A should stay home until a week after the onset of illness and until any jaundice (yellowed skin) disappears. Another disease spread through bodily fluids is HIV/AIDS. Although it can cause anxiety among parents, remember that casual physical contact – such as hugging, holding hands, or sharing a glass – does not transfer this virus. Then, there's the run-of-the mill colds and flu. Deciding whether or not to send your child to school can be a challenge. General rule of thumb? If there's a fever, keep 'em home – until the fever's been gone for at least 24 hours. If there's no fever, more than likely it's a cold and it's okay to go to school. When in doubt, check with your child's doctor. Don't forget the flu vaccine, which is recommended for everyone 6 months and older. Stop by, and I can advise you on the best way to keep your child comfortable while the cold or flu runs its course. I can also give you a brief overview of prescription or OTC treatments for the more common childhood viral infections. Eden Drug is a full service, family owned pharmacy serving the individual needs of our patients.

Gloria Hopkins and Richard Kutz receive scholarships
SECU Names People Helping People Scholarship Recipients WENTWORTH – The North Carolina State Employees Credit Union has chosen Rockingham Community College students Richard Kutz of Reidsville and Gloria Hopkins of Madison as recipients of 2011 SECU Foundation “People Helping People” scholarships. Service to community is a hallmark of the scholarship program. Hopkins and Kutz will each receive $5,000 for the 2011-12 academic school year. A former construction worker, Kutz enrolled in RCC’s horticulture program in 2010. His instructor, Brad Overby, hails him as a model student.“Richard has volunteered his own time to improve campus appearance,” said Overby. “He also goes the extra mile to help other students in the program who are struggling.” Rockingham County benefits from Kutz’ construction background as well. He has served as crew leader for World Changers and helps area churches, including his own, with building projects and needs. Hopkins believes in community service as well. The RCC accounting student has volunteered with Caregivers of Rockingham County, Carolina Cross Connection and the Salvation Army. She is also a youth leader at her church. Both students feel honored as NCSECU scholarship recipients. Kutz says the scholarship means everything to him. Hopkins says it will allow her to get a degree in a stable occupational field while continuing to help the church youth reach their future goals. Each year one student in every high school receives a $10,000 NCSECU scholarship and two students at RCC receive a $5,000 scholarship totaling $50,000 in NCSECU scholarships. These scholarships are funded by members of all three county state employee credit unions.

New Opportunity for Women Ages 13-24 at the Health Department Rockingham County ranks among the highest counties in NC in the areas of repeat teen pregnancy, maternal tobacco use, late-entry into prenatal care, unmet need for family planning services and other statistics related to self-sufficiency, parenting skills, health maintenance, health risk behaviors, and pregnancy and birth outcomes. Fortunately, Rockingham County is making a collaborative effort to reduce these statistics! Rockingham County, among four other NC counties, was awarded the Young Moms Connect: Communities Supporting Young Families grant. Approximately $500,000 was awarded over a three year period to improve the previously stated statistical outc o m e s among pregnant and/or parenting women ages 13-24 living i n Rockingham County. There are several agencies in Rockingham County that are dedicated to raising awareness of the Young Moms Connect program and seeing that young women receive the support needed to raise a healthy family. Those agencies include: Rockingham County Partnership for Children, Rockingham County School System, Rockingham County Student Health Center, Help, Inc., Rockingham Pregnancy Care Center and Rockingham County Department of Public Health (RCDPH). RCDPH is excited to take part in making a difference in the lives of young parents and their children. Through the Young Moms Connect Program, RCDPH has the opportunity to fund the following services for women ages 13-24. • Medical Home Establishment: Having a medical home, better known as a family doctor, ensures that you have access to structured health care. Your family doctor should be able to pro-
vide treatment, preventive care, and other services to meet your needs. The health department wants to be a resource for pregnant and/or parenting women ages 13-24 with no health insurance. With the help of Young Moms Connect the health department can offer physical exams, birth control, and lab services for those who may qualify. We encourage eligible young women, both new and returning, to call and make an appointment @ 336-342-8140. • Education Classes: Classes are offered to pregnant and/or parenting women ages 13-24 regardless of whether they have health insurance or not. Women are encouraged to attend all six classes in the series. Women will receive incentives during each class and qualify for additional needed supplies for their children or themselves at the end of the series. To sign up for classes call Beverly Scurry @ 336-342-8258. æ Prenatal Services: If you are between the ages of 13-24 and do not qualify for health insurance and you think you may be pregnant, please make an appointment at the health department by calling 336-342-8140. Prenatal services will be offered at Family Tree OB/GYN or Women’s Health Centre if you qualify. Young Moms Connect is a great opportunity for Rockingham County. This grant has allowed Rockingham County to integrate, expand, and enhance services available for young pregnant and/or parenting teens in our community. Through this comprehensive program, women will learn to become more selfsufficient, increase their knowledge and parenting skills, and gain and maintain healthy behaviors. We encourage all pregnant and /or parenting women ages 13-24 to please take advantage of the valuable services we are

The local bar was so sure that its bartender was the strongest man around that they offered a standing $1000 bet. The bartender would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze one more drop of juice out would win the money. Many people had tried over time - weightlifters, longshoremen, etc.- but nobody could do it. One day a scrawny little man came in wearing thick glasses and a polyester suit, and said in a tiny, squeaky voice, 'I'd like to try the bet.' After the laughter had died down, the bartender said okay, grabbed a lemon, and squeezed away. He then handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little man. But the crowd's laughter turned to total silence as the man clenched his fist around the lemon and six more drops of juice fell into the glass. As the crowd cheered, the bartender paid him the $1000, and asked the little man, 'What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a weight lifter, or what?' The man replied, 'I work for the IRS'.

Give Your Child a Head Start! Kindermusik Classes Simply put, Kindermusik is a music and movement program for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers and their parent or caregiver. In class, you’ll play, listen, sing (encouraged, but optional!), move, dance, and giggle with your child. It’s fun. Lots of fun. But the best part – your child will be learning and developing skills along the way. Each activity is designed to stimulate a child’s brain, strengthen developing neurons, build gross and fine motor skills, enhance social-emotional development, and much more. Kevin Garrison, a trained, licensed Kindermusik educator, guides the class from one activity to the next. With expertise in childhood development, he will help you understand what your child is gaining from Kindermusik. The age-based curriculum combines the latest research with proven methods. If you’re familiar with music education pioneers such as Orff, Kodaly, and Suzuki, you’ll find their influence woven throughout Kindermusik. Along with the classroom experience, each child also gets fantastic take-home materials. These materials help you bring the Kindermusik experience home, not only to continue the learning, but to continue all the fun! The research about music and children’s development is truly stunning. The bottom line: early, positive, and age-appropriate experiences with music—like a Kindermusik program—can have a remarkable and research-proven impact on your child’s: language and literacy skills (vocabulary, comprehension, listening, expression); social and emotional development; mathematics and pattern-recognition skills; ability to plan, guide, and self-regulate their behavior. Classes are currently underway with several options for the new school year. Since a great beginning never ends, consider registering your child for a Kindermusik class. For more information visit www.kindermusik.com or contact Kevin Garrison at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.344.4566. You can enroll at any time!

Eden Man Sentenced to Life In Prison WENTWORTH -Luther Qwame Martin pled guilty to First Degree Murder today in Rockingham Superior Court. The 21 year old Eden resident was sentenced to life in prison without parole by Judge William Pittman. On June 19, 2008, officers with the Eden Police Department responded to the Mar-Gre Motel concerning an unresponsive child. Upon arrival, officers found 11-month old Antonio Bridges, Jr. in Martin's arms. The baby was not breathing. Eden officers rushed the baby to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. During the course of their investigation, Eden detectives questioned Martin. Martin confessed to the murder, telling investigators that the child began crying and would not stop. Martin struck the child in the abdomen with his arm. When the child cried louder, Martin then slammed the child to the ground, striking the baby's head on the concrete. An autopsy revealed that the child died from blunt force trauma to the head and torso. "This senseless act of violence ending Antonio's young life will leave a hole in the heart of his family forever." Chief Assistant District Attorney Julia Hejazi said. "Luther Martin will be in prison to the day of his death knowing he took that child's life because he didn't want to hear him cry". Investigations involving the death of a child take an emotional toll on everyone involved, and the officers and detectives with the Eden Police department deserve special thanks and recognition for their work on this case." said Rockingham County District Attorney Phil Berger, Jr.

RCC Trustees Meet The Rockingham Community College Board of Trustees met Tuesday, July 12 and after hearing details of a report submitted by the Office of State Budget and Management and a presentation from RCC President Dr. Michael Helmick regarding the sustainability of the proposed McMichael Civic Center, trustees voted unanimously to suspend the project until the economy improves and the college administration requests that the project be revisited. According to the research reported, the center would require a substantial amount of ongoing financial support from outside groups to be sustainable. The RCC Foundation will be contacting donors to the Civic Center project and discussing the transfer of funds to a new project that would renovate the Owens Human Services Building to house a new health care training facility. “RCC doesn’t have a facilities problem, we have a facility usage problem, explained Helmick. Renovations to the Owens Human Services Building would allow the college to consolidate its health sciences programs, construct a simulated hospital, and possibly increase the number of health science programs offered. This project will directly benefit our students.” Providing a simulated hospital setting will produce better trained graduates with a higher skill level, and increased multi-disciplinary interaction between students in the clinical setting will better prepare our students for the work environment.

Continued from Page 19 Trustees unanimously approved proceeding with the renovation planning process. Trustees adopted a resolution to oppose the proposed merger of RCC with another community college as proposed in a report to the NC General Assembly’s Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee. Helmick told trustees that such a proposal concerns him greatly since student’s ability to complete programs of study would be impaired and the identity of the college would be at risk. The community could expect a reduction in new and existing programs of study offered by the college and reduction in the financial contributions to the RCC Foundation. In other business trustees adopted a resolution declining to participate in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program and approved a recommendation that RCC provide, as a benefit to full-time employees, funding for tuition and registration fees for one course per semester. The NC General Assembly recently amended a bill that eliminated the waivers of tuition and registration fees but provided the opportunity for colleges to use its own funding instead.

Property Owners Invest in Downtown The Draper Village and Olde Leaksville Municipal Service District Boards of Directors have voted to use part of their tax dollars to make downtown improvements. The Draper Village funds will be used for a T-shirt fundraiser and to build an information sign to be located in the park at the corner of Fieldcrest Road and Stadium Drive. The Olde Leaksville funds have been used to purchase six benches that were strategically located on each block on Washington Street. They also plan to research planters, a new merchant sign and a decorative clock. In 2007, property owners from both downtown areas voted in favor of instituting a tax that would generate funds to be used specifically in their areas. The Municipal Service Tax is .10/$100 valuation. Over time, the tax dollars in both areas have accumulated so large projects can be pursued. The Municipal Service Tax provides a consistent amount of annual funding that can be used for downtown improvements. Most North Carolina Main Street Communities have Municipal Service Districts. Reidsville is another of those communities that has had such a tax for many years, but at a significantly higher rate than Eden’s. “The property owners have taken the initiative to make many improvements and this tax allows them the means to do so independently of the City of Eden budget,” stated Mike Dougherty, Director of Economic Development for the City of Eden and the city’s Main Street Manager. In 2006, the city completed streetscape plans in both areas that involved new sidewalks and decorative street lighting.

Electric Companies Host 4-Hers For the 64th Year This summer 200 4-Hers from all over the state gathered at Western Carolina University to honor 4-H students who have spent the past year learning about electricity, completing electric projects, and teaching others about electricity. The celebration – called the 4-H Electric Congress – has been held every year for the past 64 years. It is sponsored by Duke Energy, Progress Energy, Dominion North Carolina Power, and North Carolina Cooperative Extension. This three-day event is not your typical kind of congress. “It rocks!” according to 4-H student Sam Christensen of Pitt County, “There was so much cool stuff to do and we even went whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River!” Christensen won the first place territorial award for Dominion North Carolina Power at the awards banquet on the first night of the congress. “The Electric Congress recognizes the accomplishments of students like Sam who have dedicated a substantial amount of time to learning about electricity,

State University.” “This is the only program like it in the country,” notes Wayne Huddleston of Duke Energy. Huddleston has been involved in making this program happen, year after year, for the past 25 years. Huddleston and the other organizers make sure to keep the program relevant, fresh, and educational for the students. For example, the location of the congress changes each year, rotating from the mountains to the piedmont to the coast. “It’s great,” Huddleston says, “to see the students who haven’t seen the mountains or the beach before. It makes us feel good because we’ve literally broadened their horizons.” The Electric Congress is held on North Carolina university campuses so students can learn more about the terrific undergraduate programs offered around the state. This year students lined up to ask Western Carolina University representatives questions at the Electric Congress career fair. But the education aspect of the congress doesn’t stop there. The sponsoring companies make sure that no student leaves without learning about the newest advances in energy, including an up-close look at Duke Energy’s all-electric Tesla vehicle. “It’s like a stealth car,” remarks Chase Lewis of Orange County. “We were all sitting in the university’s basketball arena having breakfast when all of a sudden, there the Tesla was, driving right by our table! It didn’t make a sound.” Congress delegates spent time soldering solar-powered camp lanterns while the leaders were being trained on how to

But it’s the students who are the stars of this congress.
“Imagine walking up to a podium positioned in the middle of a university basketball arena and receiving an award for your efforts to learn, and teach others, about electricity,” says 4-H State Officer Sarah Osborne of Alamance County, who presided at the awards banquet, “And imagine that instead of receiving polite applause, you receive a

The Reidsville resident was sentenced to 23-28 years in prison for the 2008 murder. Sentencing on the robbery charge was continued to a later date based on conditions the court imposed. On December 8, 2008, Redd helped arrange a meeting with the victim, Kelly Hairston, to buy drugs. Redd intended to rob Hairston during exchange. After the drugs were produced, Redd pointed a gun at the victim and shot him. Redd, with assistance, hid the body in a wooded area. The victim’s body was found by hunters two days later. An autopsy revealed that the gunshotwound was the cause of death. raucous applause bouncing off the walls of the arena. That’s what it was like.

Rockingham County Schools Preliminary No Child Left Behind Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Results Rockingham County, NC The NC Department of Public Instruction recently released the preliminary results for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under the federal "No Child Left Behind Law" (NCLB) for schools. With the data currently available, 6 out of 25 (24%) traditional Rockingham County schools met the AYP standard. In addition to the six RCS schools that met all of their targets in 2010-11, three schools missed one AYP target and two schools missed two targets. Under NCLB, schools must meet every target with every identified subgroup in order to make AYP. Schools meeting 100% of the AYP goals included Draper Elementary, Dillard Elementary, Leaksville-Spray Elementary, New Vision School, Rockingham County Middle and Rockingham Early College High. Coming within one goal of making AYP were Bethany Elementary, Rockingham County High and Wentworth Elementary. Williamsburg Elementary and Morehead High each came within two goals of making AYP. Results for all Rockingham County schools may be found on the Rockingham County Schools website,www.rock.k12.nc.us/AY P2011. The lower percentage of schools meeting the AYP stan-

While a larger percentage of RCS students were proficient in reading and mathematics in 20092010, the increased proficiency standard resulted in fewer schools achieving proficiency in 2010-2011. Over the next few weeks, Rockingham County Schools’ principals and administrative staff will be examining the AYP data and reviewing plans to ensure that all students achieve academic success. Superintendent Rodney Shotwell states, “While the number of schools achieving AYP this year is lower than last year, we continue to make progress in our proficiency levels. We are pleased with the achievement of our schools and our students, but obviously we have more work to do. Our staff will be poring over the information available to us through these assessments and determining which academic tools have been successful and which strategies may need to be

County Middle – 13.8 Western Rock. Middle – 11.1 Reidsville High – 12.5 Background Testing Information AYP is a federal requirement under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. AYP differs from the state ABCs testing model. ABCs standardized test results, however, are used in calculating AYP results. AYP is an all-ornothing model. In order to achieve AYP, a school must meet all of its target goals. The number of goals a school has depends on its varied student population. In addition to acade-
mic components, attendance rates and percent of students tested are also taken into account for grades three through eight. No Child Left Behind (NCLB) divides students into ten groups that must achieve proficiency targets in reading/language arts and mathematics. In order for a school to make AYP, every group a) must make the targets in both reading and mathematics and b) have at least a 95% participation rate in the assessments for each area. The ten student groups are: 1) School as a Whole (all students), 2) White 3) Black 4) Hispanic, 5) Native American, 6) Asian 7) Multiracial 8) Economically Disadvantaged Students 9) Limited English Proficient Students 10) Students with Disabilities. All schools in North Carolina also are judged on growth rates (ABC’s) which indicate how much progress students make across two years of academic work in a particular academic subject. Growth rate results will be available August 4, 2011, after the State Board of Education approval. For more information on AYP or individual RCS’ school results, visit the NCDPI website at : www.ncpublicschools.org/nclb/a bcayp/.

Joyce Local Cancer Support Fund can make a big difference in the lives of Rockingham County residents. Each year, the fund distributes money to individuals who are battling cancer.

For the Fun of It... DELAYS The transatlantic flight to England was half way across then the pilot came on the intercom with a casual message to the passengers. "You may have noticed slight change in the sound of the engines. That's because we've had to shut down Engine Two temporarily. There's no cause for concern; we have three more engines in fine condition. But there'll be a slight delay. Our expected time for arrival has been changed from 2:14 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. Sorry for any inconvenience that may cause." An hour later th pilot was back on th intercom, chuckling softly. "Folks, this is the first time I've ever experienced this, and I never thought it would happen, but we seem to have lost power in Engine Four. No problem in terms of safety, but we'll have a further delay. We now expect to arrive at Heathrow International at 3:30 p.m. And a little later he was back at the mike, still trying to sound reassuring but with an edge in his voice. "You won't believe this, but Engine One seems to be on the blink, and we've decided it's wise to shut it down. This is a weird situation, but not really alarming. We can easily finish the flight with one engine, although we'll be flying substantially slower. We now anticipate arriving around 4:25." One passenger turned to another and mumbled, "If that last engine goes out, it'll be next

Tuesday till we get to England." AISLE SEAT "I'd like an aisle seat on the 3:30 flight to Dayton, please," a richly dressed woman told her travel agent. The agent studied the computer database and frowned. "Hmm. I can't get you aboard that flight, but only in a window seat." "No, no. I never sit by the window. I won't have my hair blown all out of place." 600 STORIES Tom, Dick and Harry went to a party. After the party they returned to the hotel. The hotel was 600 stories high. Unfortunately for them, the elevator was not working. They made a plan for the first 200 stories, Tom will crack jokes. The second 200 stories Dick will tell a happy story and lastly Harry will tell a sad story. They then started up the steps After 2 hours it was Harry's turn. He turned to the other two and said "Ok guys, here's my sad story. I forgot the keys downstairs. SLOTH VS TURTLES A sloth calls the police to report that he was attacked and robbed by a gang of turtles. When the police ask him to describe the attack, he replies: "I.....Doooon't.....knoooow... It... all... happened..... soooooo ... fasssst....." TIGER A tiger was walking through the jungle one day and saw two men relaxing under a tree. One was reading a newspaper, and the other was working feverishly on a manual typewriter. The tiger leapt on the man with the newspaper, and ate him up. The tiger did not bother the other man at all. That's because any predator knows that readers digest, but writers cramp. SELLING BIBLES A pastor concluded that his church was getting into very serious financial troubles While checking the church storeroom, he discovered several cartons of new bibles that had never been opened and distributed.

So at his Sunday sermon, he asked for three volunteers from the congregation who would be willing to sell the bibles door-todoor for $10 each to raise the desperately needed money for the church. Jack, Paul and Louie all raised their hands to volunteer for the task. The minister knew that Jack and Paul earned their living as salesmen and were likely capable of selling some bibles. But he had serious doubts about Louie who was a local farmer, who had always kept to himself because he was embarrassed by his speech impediment. Poor Louie stuttered badly. But, NOT WANTING TO discourage Louie, the minister decided to let him try anyway. He sent the three of them away with the back seat of their cars stacked with bibles. He
asked them to meet with him and report the results of their doorto-door selling efforts the following Sunday. Anxious to find out how successful they were, the minister immediately asked Jack, "Well, Jack, how did you make out selling our bibles last week?" Proudly handing the reverend an envelope, Jack replied, "Using my sales prowess, I was able to sell 20 bibles, and here's the $200 I collected on behalf of the church." "Fine job, Jack!", the minister said, vigorously shaking his hand. "You are indeed a fine salesman and the Church is indebted to you." Turning to Paul, "And Paul, how many bibles did you sell for the Church last week?" Paul, smiling and sticking out his chest, confidently replied,

"I am a professional salesman.. I sold 28 bibles on behalf of the church, and here's $280 I collected." The minister responded, "That's absolutely splendid, Paul. You are truly a professional salesman and the church is indebted to you." Apprehensively, the minister turned to Louie and said, "And Louie, did you manage to sell any bibles last week?" Louie silently offered the minister a large envelope. The minister opened it and counted the contents. "What is this?. Louie, there's $3200 in here! Are you suggesting that you sold 320 bibles for the church, door to door, in just one week?" Louie just nodded. That's impossible!" both Jack and Paul said in unison. "We are professional salesmen, yet you claim to have sold 10 times as many bibles as we could." "Yes, this does seem unlikely," the minister! agreed. "I think you'd better explain how you managed to accomplish this, Louie." Louie shrugged. "I-I-I re-rereally do-do-don't kn-kn-know ff-f-for sh-sh-sh-sure," he stammered. Impatiently, Peter interrupted. "For crying out loud, Louie, just tell us what you said to them when they answered the door!"

RCARC invites you to “Ham it up” There is a special group in Rockingham County that is always eager to welcome newcomers who are excited about helping during emergencies as well as making new lifelong friends and having fun in the process. Rockingham County Amateur Radio Club, Inc. (RCARC) is a dedicated group of radio operators who love to keep in touch over the airwaves and assist during times of distress and disaster when called upon. Members of the RCARC meet often, even if it is from their own homes on the airwaves; like every weekday between 6:30 am and 7:30am when members with mobiles get together and talk on the way to work, some with base stations even join in to wish workers a good day and say good morning. This local group participates in various events during the year. One in May included the 2011 Gears & Cheers at the Grove Winery. This event included a Bike Ride that wound up at the local winery and all proceeds went to help attain the vision of a World Free of MS. Another example is National Field Day which was held on June 25 & 26 at Reidsville Lake Park was well attended, some to see what HAM Radio is all about, others to talk to fellow operators and get advice. This club boasts members from all over the county, some came to Amateur Radio because they needed a hobby, others came through family ties and some were actually born into the hobby by their parents already being a vital part of this unique community. For those who enjoy more than
just chitchat, there are several other features of being an amateur radio operator that many participate in. Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) is a corps of trained amateur radio operator volunteers organized to assist in public service and emergency communications and / or auxiliary communications service to public safety and public service organizations. These organizations include the American Red Cross, National Weather Service and, the Department of Homeland Security. Amateur radio operators belonging to ARES have responded to local and regional disasters since the 1930’s, including the attacks of September 11, 2001 and Hurricane Katrina. During the Katrina event more than one thousand ARES volunteers assisted in the aftermath and provided communications for the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and other individuals related to the relief effort. NOAA Weather Radio Bands features a nation-wide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information from nearby NWS offices. Anyone can get weather 24 hours a day if they have a NOAA weather radio. They can receive warnings from the National Weather Service. For more information visit NOAA’s website at www.weather.gov/nwr/. Club members are anxious to invite new operators into the fold. Mike Mansfield, President of RCARC has always had an interest in amateur radio due to the influence at an early age from his Grandfather. He started with his grandfather introducing him into the amateur radio scene and
eventually he received his Emergency Management Coordinator license and Storm Spotter designation. He even was granted his grandfathers call numbers by the FCC. His is an active member and has a great time helping with events like the MS Walk, Gears and Cheers and more. Member Dal Williams of Eden was born into ham radio. He also applied and was granted his dad’s old 1940’s call sign to use with pride. In addition to being a member of RCARC he is Trustee for the Rockingham Count Repeater Association, ARES EC and Session Manager for the Rockingham County Testing W4VEC Group. Jamey Nixon of Reidsville got his start with amateur radio first, as a cadet in the civil air patrol in the early to mid-50’s and was first licensed in 1957. His main hobby has always been amateur radio, next would be flying; he is a pilot. Jamey who also enjoys golf, fishing and gardening says, “I like amateur radio because of the people, they are great friends and willing to help and show others how to make or do new things. I like the club meetings, socials and annual events.” Tim Walker of Ruffin was first licensed in 1977 and loves experimenting with antennas and local communications activities and events like bike and walk-athons, parties, swap fests and radio picnics. Another member, Henry Pollock of Reidsville, is a retired Methodist Minister and loves his hobby of Amateur radio. He was a Chaplin in the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany, Thailand, Korea and Alaska. “The people that I have met over my many
years as a ham, have become great friends and very helpful when I needed a little helping hand.” Mike Lewis’ first memories of amateur radio are from the sixth grade. Some of his friend’s families were operators and he was fascinated to watch them. He served in the navy reserve as a radioman working and later joined the Civil Air Patrol as a squadron communications officer. He enjoys all aspects of the hobby and the meetings and event of the RCARC. If you are interested in or have questions about Joining ARES, or Amateur radio, please feel free to
attend the Rockingham County Amateur Radio meetings. The Rockingham County Amateur Radio Club meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the American Red Cross building located at 3692 NC Hwy. 14, south of Eden. The meetings start at 7pm and everyone is welcome. The group also gathers for breakfast every Thursday at Chaney’s on Freeway Drive in Reidsville between 7am – 7:15 am for conversation, food, jokes and bragging rights.

Commissioner Harold Bass praised Robinson for his vision. "He was an innovator, a visionary," he noted. "I haven't seen a manager more dedicated to his duties and responsibilities," he stated, "and I've enjoyed working with him during my two terms." Former Commissioner and current North Carolina Representative Bert Jones agreed. "Tom really works hard for Rockingham County," he stated. "I really enjoyed working with him." Robinson's planning background was evidenced by his oversight of an Updated Unified Development Ordinance and new Land Use Plan to better manage growth, limit sprawl and maintain rural and agricultural areas of the county. Former commissioner Keith Duncan noted the importance of Robinson's planning background in his selection as manager in 2001. "Budget skills and planning skills," Duncan explained, "were two of the important things we were looking for." "I knew when we got [Robinson]" he continued, "we were getting one of the best in North Carolina." “Although I did not agree with Tom on every issue," noted former commissioner Amelia Dallas, “I admired his professionalism, respected his position as manager and appreciated his service to our County." "Often times," she continued, "folks don't realize a person's value until that person is gone." Robinson and his wife Carol have sold their Reidsville home and will move to Pinehurst. "I still would like to continue working in some capacity in the future,'" he explained, "but have less stress and more time to play golf, travel, get more involved in church ministries and enjoy family."

Rep. Bert Jones 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. The state does not put forth an extensive effort to find these persons or businesses. 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 have 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. More names will follow monthly.

An old country preacher...had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young Men his age, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem too concerned about it. One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table four objects.. 1. A Bible... 2. A silver dollar... 3. A bottle of whisky... 4. A Playboy magazine... 'I'll just hide behind the door,' the old preacher said to himself. 'When he comes home from school today, I'll see which object he picks up. If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me, and what a blessing that would be! If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a business man, and that would be okay, too. But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good drunken bum, and Lord, what a shame that would be. And worst of all if he picks up that magazine he's going to be a skirt-chasing womanizer.' The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's foot-steps as he entered the house whistling and headed for his room. The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table.. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them. Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked up the silver dollar and dropped into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink, while he admired this month's centerfold. 'Lord have mercy,' the old preacher disgustedly whispered. 'He's gonna run for Congress.'

NewBridge Bank Football and Cheerleading Jamboree. NewBridge Bank has officially kicked off the 2011 NewBridge Bank Invitational football And Cheerleading Jamboree. This annual event supports our local Schools, athletic programs and includes cheerleading competition at NewBridge Bank Park on Thursday, August 4th and three scrimmage locations Friday, August 12th. The football scrimmages will take place at west Davidson, Rockingham County, and Mount Tabor High School. We estimate over 13,000 attendees and over 2,400 participating student athletes across all four events. This year’s NewBridge Bank Jamboree marks the thirteenth year in which NewBridge Bank has been dedicated to students both in the classroom and on the field. We’ve expanded the jamboree event into Forsyth County for the first time which allows us to reach a record 24 local Piedmont Triad high school. In order to continue our support, we’ve committed to raising over $120.000 for Participating schools. In order for NewBridge Bank to meet its goal of $120.000, we need the help of our communities and partners. If you would like to contribute to the jamboree, you can do so at any NewBridge Bank. We think this would be a Fantastic way to promote Your Company/ Organization and give back to the community. We’d love to have you as part of the team. 100% of all sponsorships go directly toward our fundraising goal and are given back to participating schools. Please Contact NewBridge Bank in Eden at 336-6239663 for additional information. Otherwise, thanks you for your consideration in supporting the 2011 NewBridge Bank invitational football and Cheerleading Jamboree and your local schools.

More For the Fun of It... Delays The transatlantic flight to England was half way across then the pilot came on the intercom with a casual message to the passengers. “You may have noticed slight change in the sound of the engines. That’s because we’ve had to shut down Engine Two temporarily. There’s no cause for concern; we have three more engines in fine condition. But there’ll be a slight delay. Our expected time for arrival has been changed from 2:14 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. Sorry for any inconvenience that may cause.” An hour later th pilot was back on th intercom, chuckling softly. “Folks, this is the first tie I’ve ever experienced this, and I never thought it would happen, but we seem to have lost power in Engine Four. No problem in terms of safety, but we’ll have a further delay. We now expect to arrive at Heathrow International at 3:30 p.m. And a little later he was back at the mike, still trying to sound reassuring but with an edge in his voice. “You won’t believe this, but Engine One seems to be on the blink, and we’ve decided it’s wise to shut it down. This is a weird situation, but not really alarming. We can easily finish the flight with one engine, although we’ll be flying substantially slower. We now anticipate arriving around 4:25.” One passenger turned to another and mumbled, “If that last engine goes out, it’ll be next Tuesday till we get to England.”
