Rockingham County’s New Judicial Center Named 1st LEED Gold Justice Facility in Eastern U.S. Moseley Architects, a leader in the design of justice facilities, is proud to announce that the new Judicial Center in Rockingham County has earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold certification with the Green Building Certification Institute. Located in Wentworth, North Carolina, the facility is the first LEED Gold justice facility in the Eastern United States. The Honorable W. Keith Mabe, Chairman of Rockingham County Board of Commissioners says of the certification, “It’s fantastic that we are leading in the green energy environment … it’s a good model for other counties to follow.” The 175,400-square-foot facility offers state-of-the-art court facilities as well as new accommodations for the county’s law enforcement departments. The facility also features a 300-bed detention facility, which houses both minimum and maximum security detainees. Sheriff Sam Page, said, “This is a proud accomplishment that Rockingham County Government can talk about for a long time. With this certification we have saved tax dollars, and reduced waste in the construction and operational process. Thanks again to Moseley Architects for this memorable experience in building design,” and added “This has been a great experience in my law enforcement career working with the Rockingham County Judicial Center advisory team. I appreciate the support of all participants during the planning, design and construction phases, and especially working with our partners, Moseley Architects who helped us reach our goal of LEED Gold certification. Rockingham County was eager to integrate high performance design prin-

ciples to create a more energy-and water-efficient facility, which will positively impact the facility’s operational costs. Fred B. Wilkins, Chief District Court Judge said of the new facility, “They had talked about needing a new courthouse for many years because I’ve been practicing 37 years and it’s been in the works. This is outstanding. I never thought I’d see this during my career, and then the LEED Gold certification. I’m really pleased.” L a n c e M e t z l e r , Rockingham’s C o u n t y M a n a g e r, expressed his enthusiasm with the project and the county’s leaders. “I’ve worked on a LEED Silver project before, so I understand how hard this team worked to successfully target LEED Gold for our center. Not only will this facility save the county operational costs in the long run, but we are leading by example.” Dan Mace, a vice president with Moseley Architects and the managing principal on the project indicated that Rockingham County’s leadership viewed LEED certification as a measured risk worth taking for one of the county’s largest capital projects. “I think the further along we got the more we could see how the project would benefit from the high performance design strategies we were considering and how pursuing certification was a good use of taxpayer dollars.” Moseley Architects incorporated green building strategies in the design in order to earn LEED Gold certification. Working closely with the project’s general contractor, Branch & Associates, Inc. the team included the following noteworthy features: energy-

Sometimes its hard to find the paper... Yep, that’s what we hear a lot lately. We print 12,000 papers monthly, and within the first 15 days of the month they are all picked up, sometimes by the 10th of the month! Some stands are emptied in one day, and we must restock as soon as possible, until all 12,000 papers are collected by eager readers. We want everyone who wants a paper to get one in their hands, yet there is a limit. For that reason as well as the increase in our businesses and publishing costs that come with each new year it seems, we will be increasing our circulation, as well as increasing our per column inch prices 50¢ pci. We have absorbed 2 printing price increases (not to mention gas price increases galore), yet find it difficult to absorb this third one all ourselves. Advertisers will get much more for their money; with more of their advertisements in the hands of thousands more citizens! We know our clients, who are business owners themselves, understand the need for our slight increase which will begin with the 2nd quarter (April Issue).

I also hope that readers will consider that these advertisers are actually the ones who bring you Eden’s Own Journal / Rockingham County Star FREE and hope that you will THANK THESE BUSINESS PEOPLE who want to bring you our paper, and all it’s information without cost to you.

The whole team should be proud of the collaboration, which carried the project from an initial goal of LEED Certified to the actual achievement of LEED Gold.”

Private Investigator opens in near courthouse Most people consider private investigators to be somewhere between Colombo and Magnum. But the reality is, the best of the investigators come from a background in law enforcement, and that is just the case with Stephen Williams, owner and operator of Williams Private Investigations (WPI). After 25 years in law enforcement serving as a patrol officer, Assistant Police Chief in East Dubuque, Ill., Police Chief in Auror, NC and a Sheriff’s Deputy of Rockingham County, Williams chose to retire. He had a long-standing hope to begin his own investigative business, and this was the perfect time to begin. He applied to the Department of Justice, and with all of his previous investigative history, they immediately approved of his application. Mr. Williams has an extensive background in police work and investigations, and in 2006 he was an International Police Advisor in Iraq for two years. In addition to his law enforcement

past, he is a former Navy Diver, a Viet Nam and Gulf War Veteran. Williams Private Investigations handles many types of cases such as: Child custody, civil paper service, background investigations, Workman’s Compensation fraud, tracking, and surveillance. Williams Private Investigations is ready and willing to help with any of your investigation needs,

said Williams. Discrete and professional, Williams is eager to help you with your investigation needs. WPI is located in Wentworth, across the street from the courthouse and shares the Bond-UOut bail bond office. Williams is happy to provide free consultations to potential clients and for more information be sure to call 336-280-1176.

Attracting and Retaining Young Talent preferred the small town lifestyle. Once we had children, we wanted to raise them around family. We wanted their grandparents/aunts/uncles/cousin s, to come to their little league games and school plays. Having family around and involved in the boys lives daily was important to us. We also value the education system in Rockingham County. The teachers know us, know and share our family val-

Finding ways to entice our “home grown” leaders to return to Rockingham County after college has benefits beyond retaining young talent. In the case of our February family we got “two for one”. While Casey (Gammon) grew up in Rockingham County, her husband George did not; so we are so pleased that as a family they decided to return to our county to raise their family and grow their careers. It’s our job as a community to make George feel welcomed and loved as if he was a native son. It’s important we give our young families the support and guidance they need to be successful.

ues, know our children, my siblings and I even went to school with several teachers in the area. That was also important to us; to have those types of personal connections. My father and sister both teach in Rockingham County. Q: What are some things your family does for recreation? A: George and I enjoy taking the boys on the greenway for walks. Cyler loves to play at Freedom Park (or to us the “twirly” park because of the slides). We also

industries and pursue companies within those industries. To keep those who grew up here coming back and to draw new families, we have to offer the opportunities for prosperity.

BIBLICAL REFLECTIONS OF NATURE

Gaffney “Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour” (Jeremiah 12:9) The nation of Israel has long been described as, “God’s heritage”. God’s people have been called in the Scriptures, the apple of His eye, the jewels among His crown, but sin has caused her standing with Him to be tainted. Israel had been in such constant disobedience to God that the enemies turned against them at the hand of God. God is saying in this text that, “mine heritage”, or Israel is unto me as a speckled bird. The word speckled carries with it the idea of being intermingled with another breed or defective. Throughout the Bible this meaning is carried out. The first mention of the word speckled is found in (Genesis 30:32), there it is used to describe the less than perfect herd of Laban. Jacob uses the herd’s informalities as a bargaining tool for his hire. Laban responded by saying that he will remove all the speckled beasts from the fold. “I will pass through all thy flock today, removing from thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and

all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire”. The prophet Jeremiah must have seen in his bird watching days, a speckled bird that was hatched among his less colorful comrades. The bright plumage of the speckled bird brought reproach and animosity to his fellow birds. All the other birds of the nest disowned the bird, even its mother. They all pounced upon the nestling from every corner and pecked her to death. God says to the prophet Jeremiah; that’s the way the nation of Israel is. Because of Israel’s disobedience and unwillingness, God has permitted all the nations of the world to come in and peck at her like a speckled bird. Let’s make a personal application to this verse in Jeremiah. The bright plumage of the speckled bird brought jealousy and indifference to the other birds. The same is true when man exalts himself with the bright bragging plumage of a haughty spirit. God is a jealous God, and the intermingling breed of sin’s stains causes our service to Him to be defective. God wants the speckled stains of sin to be washed white as snow in the blood of Christ.

Audition forms must be turned in to the Morehead Hospital Foundation by Friday, February 10. Jennifer Boyte, the Foundation’s Annual Fund Chairman, said the event is being held earlier this year to give talent from area dance and drama groups a chance to participate before dance competitions start in the spring. The show will be at an earlier time, a matinee at 3 p.m., so people who do not like to drive at night will be able to get home before dark. “There will be seven (7) cash prizes ranging from $200 to $50, plus the popular People’s Choice Award,” stated Ed Holbrook, Executive Director of the Foundation. “We are looking for different types of acts for the Talent Show. If you can juggle, do magic acts, play various musical instruments, dramatic readings, comedy, ventriloquism, or puppetry—anything that is entertaining and in good taste—then you are who we are looking for to showcase in this year’s Talent Show.” Proceeds from this year’s event will go to Morehead Memorial Hospital’s Pediatric Care Program and to help establish a Healthcare Scholarship that will benefit a graduating senior at Morehead High School. For more information about the “Eden’s Got Talent Show” or the purchase of tickets, please call the Foundation office at (336) 627-6334.

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life

Paying Off Library Fines with Food was a holiday winner! Rockingham County Public Library Director Michael P. Roche had good news to share about the Christmas food drive to help those in need. The annual Food for Fines program which allowed library patrons owing library fines to receive amnesty by donating food was a holiday winner! It was his motion that led to the best year we ever had. From December 1st through the 23rd 2,508 cans of food were collected. “That is wonderful … outstanding …thanks to everyone for donations and everyone involved for their hard work,” said Commissioner Travis. The Rockingham County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to support the library’s Food for Fines project expansion from one week to the first 23 days of December. Roche said the county library has normally done the project for a week for close to 20 years. Rockingham County residents paid off library fines with food and their donations were taken to local agencies. One can of food equaled one dollar in fines at all Rockingham County Public Libraries and the Bookmobile. Library branches are located throughout the county in Eden, Madison, Mayodan, Reidsville, and Stoneville.

DRBA Outing The Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) will continue its Tenth Year Celebration with a February 4 hike on trails in Virginia's Fairy Stone State Park. Participants will meet at 10:00 a.m. at the Stuart's Knob Trailhead on Union Bridge Road (Virginia State Route 623) on the north side of Fairy Stone Lake (GPS 36.798504,80.116784). This 2-mile hike on Stuart's Knob Trail, Fairystone State Park, VA will meet at State Route 623/Union Bridge Rd, VA (GPS 36.798504,-80.116784) The park's brochure rates the hike as strenuous, but Trip Coordinator Lucas Conkle, chair of DRBA's Outings Task Force, considers the trails moderate. Switchbacks make it easier to climb the slopes, and Conkle plans to set a gentle pace to allow participants to enjoy the forest, the historic sites, and the views. "The Stuart Knob Trail system has a nice mix of views and history," Conkle says. "It is sure to become one of your favorite hikes if you go on the trip." Fairy Stone State Park, founded in 1936 as the largest of Virginia's first six state parks, is named for the cross-shaped staurolite, a rare mineral found in the region. Legend says this area was once home to fairies and other woodland creatures. Word of Jesus' crucifixion so saddened these fairies that they wept tears which crystallized staurolite (silica, iron and aluminum) in the form of Maltese, Roman and St. Andrews crosses. Participants are asked to bring lunch, water and a hiking stick; wear comfortable shoes or hiking boots; dress in layers of watershedding artificial fabric or wool; and be prepared for rain or wind. All participants will be asked to sign a waiver form. Free and open to the public. For more information, contact Trip Coordinator Lucas Conkle at conklel@alumni.greensboro.edu.

Mayodan Welcomes New Town Manager & Public Works Director The Town Council is pleased to announce that Michael Brandt as the new Town Manager, replacing Ms. Debra Cardwell who retired at the end of December. Ms. Cardwell has been a trusted public servant working for Mayodan for over 34 years. She has served as Town Clerk, Town Finance Officer, and in 1996 was appointed Town Manager. Her accomplishments are many and she is respected throughout Rockingham County and the state for her public service, which culminated in her being awarded the prestigious “Order of the Long Leaf Pine” by Governor Beverly Perdue. Her breath of knowledge, friendly attitude, and love for her home town can not be replaced. Mr. Brandt has served as the Town Manager/Town Administrator of the Town of Summerfield since 2003. Previously he was a Planner with Guilford County. He holds a bachelor’s

Mr. Brandt was the first Town Manager hired by Summerfield. In his role as manager he oversaw the acquisition and development of property for public parks and successfully obtained over one million dollars in grant funds. In addition, he oversaw the growth and development of Summerfield as it grew from 7,000 to over 10,000 residents in 10 years. Mr. Brandt started work in early December, allowing time for an orderly transition in the management of the Town, and formally took the position of Town Manager January 1st. In November David Baker, Public Works Director, announced his intention to retire from Mayodan. Mr. Baker was employed by the Town for over 24 years, serving in a variety of positions before being appointed as the Public Works Director in 1997. His service to the citizens of Mayodan has been outstanding and he will be missed by staff and Council for his knowledge of the sewer and water systems that provide critical services to Mayodan’s citizens. The town now wants you to welcome Clifford Ellington, a twenty-year veteran of the public works department, to the position of Public Works Director. Mr. Ellington has served as David’s right-hand man for many years and brings a strong work ethic and knowledge to the position. Mr. Ellington’s promotion was also effective January 1, 2012.

Illegal Burning equals Fines Rockingham County Code Enforcement Officer Tinker Woods warns there are strict rules about open burnings because smoke from outdoor fires can cause serious health problems and pollute the air. You can be fined for illegal open burning in Rockingham County and citations may be issued by the Rockingham County Code Enforcement Officers and the Rockingham County Fire Marshal. He emphasized it is illegal to burn trash for “in the past, we have actually had houses, storage buildings, and vehicles burned due to illegal burnings.” The basic message of Rockingham County’s openburning rule is simple: Only leaves, branches and other plant growth can be burned … nothing else! If it does not grow, do not burn it! That means no trash, lumber, tires or old news-

Discover Your ROOTS Open House Held “Discover Your ROOTS,” an open house for introducing genealogical research to African/Americans will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Family History Center. The Family History Center is located in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 4751 N.C. 14 just south of Eden. The event is being held in conjunction with Black History Month. “There has been an increased interest in discovering and preserving African American history since Alex Haley first encouraged black Americans to research their roots,” said FHC Director Ruby Asbury. “That growing interest is evident in Rockingham County and surrounding areas.” Over the past several months, African/Americans have taken advantage of the genealogical programs available at the bimonthly events at historic Wright Tavern in Wentworth. Family History consultants have been on hand to assist those individuals, including several from Greensboro, Asbury said. “We believe the open house will make more people aware of the services the Family History Center has available,” said Assistant Director Albertha Anderson. “Our consultants will be on hand to assist people in finding their ancestors.” Anderson said she had been looking for one of her ancestors for

some time but one of the FHC consultants found it. Those attending the open house will learn how to start their family histories and what resources are available for their research. Some of the most valuable resources are the Family Search Forums and Family Search Wiki. Handouts will be available about them and other online and local resources.

Notes from RCC Excellent training is impetus behind RCC program enhancements Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and Forsyth Medical Center, among others, use the “Ferrari” of ventilators in their respiratory therapy departments: the Avea. Now Rockingham Community College uses an Avea to train its respiratory therapy students. “It’s important because the Avea is equipped for use with all age groups – infant to adult,” said Daniel Williams,” RCC’s respiratory therapy clinical coordinator,” and our students deal with all age groups at their various clinical sites.” In addition, said Williams, familiarity with the machine they will encounter at clinical sites makes the students more comfortable and prepared. Beyond ventilating systems, respiratory therapy administrators at the college have installed a battery of 30 clinical simulations which were installed on computers used in the respiratory therapy lab and classrooms. “The simulations require a student to think critically about what he or she would do in a certain clinical situation,” said RCC respiratory therapy director, Vickie Chitwood. “They must gather data, order tests, interpret the test results and make decisions about

patient care and treatment based on each of these items. In these simulations, you are the doctor, the nurse, the therapist, everybody. Without the simulator,” she said, “students would not be exposed to certain clinical procedures, such as ordering tests.”

Chair caning offered for first time ar RCC

Because students are given situations within all age groups, the simulation exercises prepare them for their clinical work, the workforce and for their board exam. “Although we have a pass rate higher than the national average, students have struggled with the clinical simulation part of the board exam,” said Chitwood. With the updated equipment and simulations, we expect that to improve a great deal.” To improve their ability to find employment, the college is offering Advanced Cardiac Life Support for the first time to its

WENTWORTH – Today, as in decades past, cane furniture is a popular decorating choice. If you are interested in the cane look, check for discarded pieces in your family’s attics, basements or other storage. Restoring cane furniture to its former glory requires the right tools and instructions. On Saturdays, from Jan. 21-Feb. 18, Rockingham Community College is providing that instruction with a chair caning class. Students can reclaim old chairs and rockers by using common seat materials such as binder cane, fiber rush, flat reed and pressed cane. Supplies needed are a mop bucket, box cutter, scissors, tack hammer, tape measure, clamps-2, needle nose pliers, stapler, pliers, wooden pegs or golf tees, awl, and clothes pins. The cost of the course is $70. Instructor Valerie Saunders received training in the art of caning at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. She has taught caning and restores cane furniture as a career. For more information or to register for the course, call Helen Pokrzywa at 342-4261, ext. 2177.

Notes from RCC

Amelia W. Dallas, GRI, CSP

THE WRIGHT COMPANY, REAL ESTATE RCC adding women’s basketball WENTWORTH – Stewart McClintock of Greensboro has been hired as head coach for the resurrected women’s basketball program at Rockingham Community College. The college operated the program from 1999-2002 and now joins 12 other community colleges statewide who offer basketball to their female athletes. “We have had questions from students about women’s basketball, we have a great facility for it, and now we have a young and eager coach,” said Dean Myrick, director of student life and athletics. “I believe once we get the program started, it will take off and coach McClintock will compliment the great coaching staff we have here in our various sports programs. Our coaches do a great job for this college and positively influence our studentathletes.” McClintock comes to RCC after serving under Bobby Allison as assistant women’s basketball coach at Guilford Technical Community College in Greensboro during the 2011-12 season in which the team ranked

as high as fifth in the country in the National Junior College Athletic Association. “When looking at Guilford, Rockingham, Alamance and other surrounding counties, this is a basketball rich area,” said McClintock. “I’m looking forward to capitalizing on that talent and building an exciting women’s basketball program at RCC.” McClintock has a good track record to achieve that goal. At Patterson School in Lenior, the number one ranked prep school in the country at the time, McClintock served as assistant men’s basketball coach and head women’s basketball coach. The men’s varsity team took the country’s number one slot for most of the 2008-09 season and four of his players on the women’s team placed in NCAA, Division I schools. As head coach during the 2010-11 season at Oak Ridge Military Academy, he led the boy’s junior varsity team to a 161 record for the season. As assistant to the men’s varsity basketball coach during the same sea-

son, he helped the Oak Ridge team achieve a ranking as high as twelfth nationwide. McClintock McClintock played baseball at NC A&T State University and graduated from Carolina in 2007 with a degree in kinesiology (now called exercise and sports science.) Although he enjoyed playing collegiate baseball, he said that basketball is the sport where coaches can have the most impact. “As a coach, you get involved with the game and the players. That’s what I love about it,” he said. Grateful to have the opportunity to be head coach at the collegiate level, McClintock is starting immediately to look for talent. “I will be talking to all of the Rockingham County High School coaches,” he said. In the meantime, if anyone is interested in playing for the 2012-13 season, he says to contact him at mcclintocks@rockinghamcc.edu.

state and national guidelines on the protection of human test subjects for research. The IRB will review proposed research projects prior to the beginning of any data collection to ensure that standards of privacy and ethics are met. President Helmick explained that community colleges don’t typically conduct research. Reporting on the college budget, Vice President of Administrative Services Steve Woodruff, reported that approximately $120,000 of the college’s 2011-2012 state budget has been reverted as mandated by the North Carolina Community College System. Trustees approved the selection of Clark Patterson Lee as the architect for the proposed renovation to the N. Jerry Owens Human Services Building and the Advanced Technologies building.

Winter Vegetable Planting Kathryn Holmes, Extension Agent North Carolina Cooperative Extension - Rockingham County Winter is a good time to start planning your vegetable plantings. Think of the planning stage as very important!! Organize vegetables by seed starting dates for the transplants, then transplanting dates or by direct seeding dates. Many cool-season vegetable transplants are ready to plant 6 weeks from seeding. Asparagus crowns are one of the first vegetables to go into the soil. Plant the 1-year-old crowns at the bottom of a 6-9 inch furrow but only cover with 1 to 2 inches of soil at planting. As the asparagus grows continue to slowly add more soil until the trench is filled. Onions can be planted in January and February when the soil conditions are favorable. Onion transplants due best for growing large, sweet dry bulb onions. Green or bunch onions can be grown by planting sets or direct seeding. Head and leaf lettuce transplants can be planted starting in February. Be sure and harden off the lettuce transplants. Once planted lettuce is usually very tolerant of temperatures down to 20-25 F. Direct seeded lettuce needs to be sown very shallow, even leaving some seed uncovered. Garden peas and peas planted for the edible pods can be planted in cool weather and tolerate frost well. Many gardeners like to plant carrots in the winter but be careful as small carrot seedlings cannot handle hard freezes. Carrots are fairly tolerant of frost. Carrots seedlings with less than six leaves and a root less than 1 inch in diameter are more susceptible to cold injury. Optimal soil temperatures should be above 40 F. Get ready to plant many other cool season vegetables starting late February/ March such as horseradish, rhubarb, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, leeks, collards, cabbage, and potatoes,. Also windbreaks, mulches, row covers, and high tunnels can be used to increase success of early vegetables.

Art unveiled Todd Drake’s newest art exhibit, “Help: Hidden Work, Hidden Lives,” shines a light on marginalized workers. It explores how many sought to bring honor to their work; how work options affected an individual’s life; and how those options sometimes affected families for generations. It is an artistic story using mixed media collections of words, photographs, videos and objects and he is still seeking stories from locals, especially those who worked in area mills. This is the second major body of work by Drake since coming to Rockingham Community College in 2008. As a fine arts instructor, Drake emphasizes to his students that content drives the engine of art. Name any art period or piece and Drake will point out its content: Picasso’s Blue Period – “He was reacting to the death of a dear friend.”

EDEN — Morehead Memorial Hospital has been awarded three-year terms of accreditation in Nuclear Medicine and Computed Tomography (CT) imaging as the result of recent reviews of the two programs by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Nuclear medicine is a branch of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material, ingested by the patient, to diagnose and treat a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers, heart disease, and certain other abnormalities within the body. CT uses a rotating x-ray source and computer processing to create images of thin sections of the body and 3-D views which are used in diagnosing many types of cancers and abnormalities within the body. In addition to its nuclear medicine and CT programs, Morehead Memorial Hospital’s magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, mammography, and vascular laboratory programs are ACR accredited. “We are proud that Morehead Memorial Hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging Department has been awarded accreditation by the American College of Radiology for nuclear medicine and CT,” said hospital President

and CEO W. Carl Martin. “Congratulations to Dr. Taylor Stroud, Medical Director, Steve Kleckowski, VP of Operations, and the entire radiology staff for a job well done.” The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR practice guidelines and technical standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement. The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 diagnostic/ interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.

More than a million Americans have heart attacks each year. Nearly half of them die. Why does this happen? In many cases, it's because people don't take action quickly enough – or at all. A heart attack occurs when blood flow to part of the heart muscle is blocked. If blood flow isn't restored quickly to that part of the heart muscle, it lacks nutrition and dies. That's why it's so important to seek medical help right away. If you or someone you're with may be having a heart attack, call 9-1-1 without delay. This needs to be an ambulance trip to the hospital, not a joy ride. If you get caught driving in traffic, you can lose valuable minutes. To help you visualize the urgency of the situation, think of a heart attack as a gunshot to the heart. If symptoms stop within five minutes or come and go, don't just thank your lucky stars. Call your doctor and describe what happened. A blood vessel could be on its way toward blockage. Cardiologists call the 60 minutes after a heart attack the "golden hour." That's because this is the narrow window of time when treatment can open arteries and prevent permanent heart damage. These heart specialists have two methods for doing this. They can use a clot-dissolving drug. Or, they can perform a procedure to open blocked heart arteries (angioplasty). If treatment is so effective, why don't people get themselves promptly to the hospital where they belong? Maybe it's because many have a Hollywood image of a heart attack: the clutching of the chest, the unbearable pain and the dramatic collapse onto the floor. But a heart attack can have several guises. Symptoms can begin quickly or slowly. They can be severe or mild. They may come and go. They can even vary from one time to the next. Some people may have no clear symptoms at all. These are called "silent heart attacks." They are more common in people with diabetes. Chest discomfort or pain may be a hallmark of heart attack. But it can feel more like pressure than pain. It may be a squeezing or heaviness, making it difficult to catch your breath. Or, you may have a feeling of fullness or indigestion, resembling heartburn. You may have other warning signs of a heart attack, including: Discomfort in one or both arms, or your back, neck, jaw, or stomach, Nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness, or fainting , Sweating . So if this happen to you or someone you know, will you take the needed action? Or will you be afraid you're being alarmist and worry that the symptoms were nothing but a case of indigestion? If so, remember this: You can't die of embarrassment. But a heart attack can most definitely kill you. After a heart attack, doctors often prescribe medications to prevent a second one. These work in various ways. For example, they might prevent blood clots, lower cholesterol, or lower blood pressure. Don't stop taking these without your doctor's okay. If you run into any problems or have any questions, I'm here to help guide you. Eden Drug is a full service, family owned pharmacy serving the individual needs of our patients.

In addition to light, dark, form and subject, he placed the cups so that if looked at from left to right, they create a musical score.” After emphasizing the importance of content, Drake then leads by example. Initially, this resulted in Drake’s exhibit titled, “Esse Quam Videri: Muslim Self-Portraits,” a photographic story that looks at the complexity of the American conscious in the wake of 9/11 and its affect on practicing Muslims (currently exhibiting at Guilford College). The exhibit has been welcomed in galleries around the country and in Bahrain, a Muslim country. Although his newest exhibit debuted at NC A&T State University on Jan. 12, Drake says the full exhibit will not be finished for three to four years. That is because he still seeks stories to be included: stories to flesh out and complete his idea. Therefore, he is asking local citizens to contact him with stories about their work or the work of family members. He is looking for stories of those who were forced into a particular work life and brought honor to it; those who worked a job but dreamed of work they couldn’t attain; those who were exploited in the work they did; those who hid their work due to feelings of shame. To contact him, call 342-4261, ext. 2191 or e-mail to draket@rockinghamcc.edu. By seeking these stories and creating art from them, Drake is fulfilling his role as a teacher. By focusing his artistic eye on our society’s issues, he is directing the eyes of his students to see the potential power of the art they choose to create.

Peanuts become costly snack The cost of peanuts… well isn’t peanuts any longer. Prices in 2011 nearly tripled for the delicious snack, due to a severe drought and soaring temperatures during the last couple of key growing periods. Here in the US is where the price of peanuts has been felt the most, forcing retailers to increase the price the main product that is usually a staple in food banks and on family shelves, peanut butter. Some brands by Kraft and Smuckers have increased prices over 30%. With the supply over 10% lower than the previous year, and up to 17% in some states, inventories are at their lowest in years. According to specialists, the peanut prices will remain high for the next few months at least, with hopes that a bumper crop in the near future could ease the pain from the shortage. On the local front, peanuts are sold as fundraisers in several areas and the public may have noticed a higher price this year than in years past. Those who sell the self contained snack hope that the public understands the dilemma created by the droughts. Even with all this bad news, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. If you price it ounce per ounce, peanut butter remains one of the most inexpensive protein sources around, even with the increase in price. And of course manufacturers will offer coupons to help soften the blow to consumers, so check your papers and internet for coupons on your favorite brands.

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life Continued from Page 14

By Melinda Ward, City of Eden Wellness Committee

The City of Eden’s Wellness Committee is made up of city employees from several departments. Their main goal is to help provide information to all employees that could benefit each one in terms of their physical health as well as their mental health. The committee feels that the more we know, the better we take care of ourselves and the more we take care of ourselves, the better employees we become. Several different issues hit close to home for many of the city family, so it becomes an even more important issue to deal with. Cancer is one that shows no boundaries and has affected most of our employees, either directly or indirectly. We as a group can’t do much to prevent cancer, but what we can do is heighten awareness of the causes and preventable measures. Every year we try to provide information to all of our employees about simple things they can do to try to prevent cancer or with tips on early detection. The last couple of years, we have tried to extend that information further to the community with cancer awareness. One specific way was with a billboard in 2010 and again in 2011. Hopefully, many people traveling Highway 14 saw the billboard many times and paid attention to the message of awareness. Sometimes a visible reminder is enough to get someone thinking about what they can do to learn more about their risks or even remind them to have their annual checkup. These billboards were fully supported by funds raised by the City of Eden employees, but none of this would have been possible without the assistance and support from Tom Poe with Fairway Outdoor Advertising. He provided us with a great location for full visibility as well as a great price so that our limited funds could be enough to cover the cost of the sign with a little left over to make a donation to the local Relay for Life. We wish to thank Mr. Poe for all of his assistance in helping the committee make this dream a reality. While we are extending thanks to those who have helped us over the years, we cannot leave out the different vendors from Eden and the surrounding community that have participated in our health fairs every March. The health fair gives the employees an opportunity to see what is available locally for their benefit such as healthy food options and medical care as well as counselors for their emotional needs. We appreciate you taking the time out of your schedules to share this information with our employees,

Prevention of vehicle thefts Since November 1, 2012, Rockingham County citizens have reported approximately twenty break-ins to motor vehicles in the Southwestern part of the county in the Madison area near the Guilford County line. ALL of the motor vehicles broken-into were UNLOCKED. Sheriff Page is urging citizen not only in this area, but also throughout Rockingham County, to follow these simple suggestions that may prevent you from becoming a victim of a crime: 1) Secure your motor vehicles and homes by locking doors and windows when you are not in them. NEVER leave valuables, firearms, cash, checks, or prescription medications inside your vehicle unattended. Installing a home alarm system is also a good idea. 2) If you see something that looks suspicious in your neighborhood, REPORT IT! Strange vehicles or people walking in the area may be up to no good. Unfortunately, The Sheriff’s Office doesn’t have the manpower to be everywhere at once, and criminals count on this, so we depend on citizens to help us by reporting suspicious looking activity in their neighborhoods. 3) Look out for your neighbors’ property and ask them to look out for your property. Again, call 911 if you see anything or anyone suspicious! Consider forming a Community Watch Group in your neighborhood. After all, the more sets of eyes that are looking out for each other, the better! Anyone interested in forming a Community Watch group in their neighborhood, should contact Crime Prevention Deputy Kevin Suthard at (336) 634-3232 ext. 4047, or email your information to ksuthard@co.rockingham.nc.us .

and we hope to see you and others at our future events. Our next focus is now on heart health. February is American Heart Month and with Valentine’s Day being Feb. 14, it is a good time to think about your heart in many ways. We all need to know how our everyday choices affect how our heart operates, but we also want to make sure that we are around as long as possible to be with the ones that we love. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in this country, and according to the CDC website, someone in America will have some type of coronary event about every 25 seconds and every minute, someone will die from a heart-related problem. Many things can be done to reduce your chances of having a heart attack, even if you have already had one in the past. Most deal with your lifestyle choices, eating habits, or amount of exercise. There are many websites that have information about control, prevention, and recognizing common signs of a heart attack. The City of Eden Wellness Committee would like to encourage everyone reading this article to look into one of these websites to learn more. According to the CDC website, the American Heart Association, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the American Red Cross, and the National Council on Aging have launched a new "Act in

Time" campaign to increase people's awareness of heart attacks and the importance of calling 911 immediately at the onset of heart attack symptoms. If you don’t have access to a computer, talk to your healthcare provider for brochures and other information that could be useful in learning more. Thanks again from the Wellness Committee as we work together for good health.

Whether you are planning a new landscape or looking to improve your current landscape design, it is important to choose a variety of plants that will provide interest throughout the year. Many successful landscape designs are planned with all four seasons in mind to provide yearround enjoyment. Remember that a plant does not necessarily need flowers or even leaves to provide winter interest. The plant’s shape, berries, bark and dried leaves all contribute to its splendor. One of the easiest and least expensive ways to enjoy your landscape in winter is through the use of perennials. Plants like Autumn Joy Sedum (Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’) will show their gorgeous color on into November and once their color is gone, the dried stalk and seed head will attract birds and provide beautiful form to your winter garden. An excellent winter shrub species is the colored Dogwood. The Red Twig Dogwood (Cornus abla) and the Yellow Twig Dogwood (Cornus sericea) are deciduous plants that shed their leaves and show their

Eden, NC – Although Arbor Ridge at Eden is visible on South Kennedy Avenue in Eden, NC, a sign for the community seems to have disappeared! It wasn’t stolen and it didn’t fly off of a truck on Highway 14, it can be found somewhere in Rockingham County. The size of real estate sign that sits in front of a listed house, it will be placed by an Arbor Ridge supporter possibly in their yard, next to their barn, or outside of their business. It could be anywhere! For the lucky one that finds it and returns is safely to Arbor Ridge at Eden, there will be a special gift. A $25 gift card will await the person that returns the sign from anywhere in the county, to Arbor Ridge at Eden. Starting on January 24rd, the sign may appear anywhere in Rockingham County. There will only be one and the prize is open to anyone that sees it, removes and returns it to Arbor Ridge at Eden, located at 302 S. Kennedy Ave., Eden, N.C.

Crape Myrtles require little pruning By Josh Woodall, Planning Department, City of Eden One of the most common misnomers in landscape maintenance is to heavily prune Crape Myrtles (Lagerstroemia sp.). Under no circumstance should you pollard or cut your Crape Myrtles back to branch stubs. This causes undue stress, reduces cold hardiness, and creates heavy clusters of flowers that many times result in branches sagging and breaking. Light pruning can be done year round and should be reserved to removing sucker growth at the base and removal of damaged or small twiggy limbs. Heavier selective pruning should be done in cooler weather, up until spring growth. It may be needed if the tree has outgrown its intended space and is interfering with sidewalks or driveways, is touching a roof or house, or has been damaged from wind, ice or other injury. Do your trees a favor and allow them to grow naturally. The American Red Cross

beautifully colored twigs in the winter. They can be used as a specimen or planted in large mass and will add a splash of color to any winter landscape. Trees with exfoliating bark, such as the Paper Bark Maple (Acer griseum), provide spectacular fall color with red, orange and pink leaf tones. After the leaves are gone, the tree’s exfoliating bark provides an attractive winter specimen. Many varieties of Holly, such as Fosters (Ilex x attenuata 'Fosteri'), Emily Bruner (Ilex x Emily Bruner) and American (Ilex opaca), are evergreen plants with striking red berries. Keep in mind if planting any holly species that only the female produces red berries and a male plant must be present to pollinate the female. A local plant nursery will be glad to assist you in identifying both male and female companion plants to facilitate pollination.

Regular Screenings Can Catch Cervical Cancer at a Curable Stage If you are a woman between 35 and 55 years of age you’re at the prime time to develop cervical cancer. Once a major cause of death for women in their childbearing years cervical cancer deaths have decreased significant with early diagnosis and treatment. January was Cervical Health Awareness Month, to educate women about early detection and the virus that causes this disease. “About 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer annually,” says Dr. William McLeod, an Obstetrician/ Gynecologist at Morehead Memorial Hospital. “Although cervical cancer is one of the easiest gynecological cancers to detect, the mortality rate is still high with more than 4,000 deaths each year. Getting regular exams is imperative to protect yourself against this disease.” The cervix is the lower, narrow end of the uterus. It connects the vagina – or birth canal – to the upper part of the uterus – or womb – where a baby grows during pregnancy. Cancer can occur in any of these areas. Abnormal bleeding and discharge is the primary symptom of cervical cancer, which is the 14th most frequent cancer among American women, according to the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health. The test used to screen for cervical cancer and suspicious changes in cervical cells is called a Pap smear or Pap test, named for Dr. George Papanicolaou, who first proposed using this simple yet effective screening procedure. Death rate declined significantly The National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC) credits the test with reducing the death

rate from cervical cancer by 70 percent since the 1940s. The advocacy group calls the Pap test the “single most effective cancer screen in the history of medicine.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that young women begin getting regular Pap tests at 21 or within three years of starting sexual activity, whichever comes first. At age 30, your doctor may recommend waiting up to three years for your next test if your results have been consistently normal. By age 65, if you have had normal Pap tests for several years, your doctor may suggest you can stop getting screened. Pap tests also may be suspended if you’ve had your cervix removed during a hysterectomy. The human papillomavirus, or HPV, is a confirmed culprit in causing the majority of all cervical cancers. Your doctor may suggest that you have an HPV test to detect the virus, which can cause precancerous cell changes and cervical cancer. The test also is used to follow up on unclear Pap results. HPV is passed from person to person during genital contact and occurs in 80 percent of women by age 50, the NCCC says. However, it’s reassuring to know that most women infected with HPV will not go on to develop cervical cancer. “The human papillomavirus is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the country,” notes Donna Wood, Practice Leader of Clinical Operations at Quorum Health Resources (QHR). “While most women will suffer no ill effects from an HPV virus, it can lead to cervical cancer. Death rates associated with HPV have declined 2.7 percent annually from 1998 to 2007 in the United States but the toll worldwide is still very high. It’s

The ROCKINGHAM the second most frequent cause of female death, killing about 300,000 each year.” HPV and Men The CDC says that most men who get HPV will never develop symptoms or health issues, however; some types of HPV can cause genital warts and cancers. About 2,000 men develop HPV-related cancers each year in the U.S. Currently there are not any HPV tests recommended for men but there are ways to treat the health problems caused by HPV in men. Boys 26 years or younger can get the three series vaccination, Gardasil, that can help protect against the types of HPV that cause problems in men. Vaccine approved to prevent key virus In 2006 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a three-shot vaccination that protects against the two types of HPV causing about 70 percent of cervical cancers. The vaccine is targeted primarily to females who have not yet been exposed to HPV through sexual contact, specifically those aged 9 through 26. Vaccinating females against a sexually transmitted disease at such an early age has caused controversy among some parents and family values groups, and some side effects have been reported. However, the CDC recommends the vaccine, and it’s now also approved for boys age 9 through 18 to reduce their chance of acquiring genital warts. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) links the following preventable behaviors to contracting HPV and increasing the risk of developing cervical cancer: • Starting sexual relations at an early age • Having multiple sexual partners, or sex with people who have had multiple partners • Smoking • Contracting HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, or similar conditions that hamper the body’s ability to overcome health problems • Using birth control pills for five years or more • Giving birth to three or more children Even if women receive the HPV vaccine at an early age, they still need regular Pap tests and HPV screening as recommended by their physicians once they become sexually active. The vaccine is not effective against all types of HPV viruses, so the Pap test is needed to detect and treat cell changes caused by those before they develop into cervical cancer.

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life Continued from Page 18 began shooting at him. After further investigation, Sheriff’s Detective Kaleb Vaden learned the vehicles involved came from the Narrow Gauge Road in Reidsville where the first shots were fired at Jones. Jones was involved in a wreck at Narrow Gauge Rd. and US Bus 29 North while trying to flee from these gunshots. Jones then pursued the shooter’s vehicle onto Madison St., turning left on Highway 14, during which time several more shots were fired according to witnesses. At the intersection of Morehead St. and NC Highway 14, Jones’ vehicle and the shooter’s vehicle made contact with each other coming to a stop at this location. Additional shots were fired at Jones before the shooter’s vehicle fled east towards US 158 East. Jones' White 1993 Chevrolet Caviler passenger car was hit multiple times by the gunfire, however; he was not injured. The shooter’s vehicle is described as an older model 4 door Lincoln passenger car, Burgundy in color, with a sunroof. Anyone who may have witnessed this exchange while travelling in the area or that has any information about this incident is asked to call Sheriff’s Detective Kaleb Vaden at (336) 634-3238 ext. 4109 or Rockingham County Crimestoppers.

County Commissioners' Unanimous Vote for Tire Cleanup Contract

Tire Cleanup A tire cleanup of Summers Lane was approved with a unanimous vote by the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners during its Jan. 10th meeting at the Rockingham County Governmental Center in Wentworth. The tire site has been a nuisance, fire hazard and mosquito nesting area, necessitating cleanup by law. Funding will be made available from the Tire Tax for this purpose. Rockingham County will pay for the property to be cleaned up and the State of North Carolina will reimburse the expense of cleanup ($60,000 from Scrap Tire Fund). Woods said Central Carolina Tire (Cameron, NC), who focuses on tire recycling, received the $60,000 cleanup contract for the eightacre site. The cleanup should take between four and six weeks to complete because many of the old tires have been on the site over 30 years. Tires will first be brought above ground to a staging area; then wheels will be removed; and finally the tires will be loaded on trailers and transported to Cameron.

Cremations become a local option in Eden Mike Cooke

On December 1st, 2011 – Boone & Cooke, Inc - Funeral Home and Crematory officially changed it’s name from Boone – Reynolds and opened it’s on-site cremation center; Legacy Cremations Inc. Daniel Boone along with partners Mike & Judie Cooke fulfilled one of their long-term goals since purchasing the funeral home in 2007 with the building and opening of the Cremation Center. “Our commitment has always been to serve our community with the highest level of service and care. The completion of the cremation center furthers our commitment and solidifies our intent of growing to serve,” Mr..Cooke Legacy Cremations, Inc was built adjacent to the funeral home. It is the only free standing full service Cremation Center within Rockingham County and the only crematory in Eden. Legacy offers a state of art facility complete with arrangement office, full selection area offering a wide array of Urns and other

memorial tributes and family viewing area. Matthews International, the world’s leader in cremation equipment, having been in business over 60 years, manufactured the cremation equipment. Boone & Cooke having a crematory on site allows for them to have total and complete control over the cremation, their certified and trained staff performs all facets of the cremation process from the removal of the deceased to the return of the cremated remains to the family. “Your loved one never leaves our care or is transferred outside of Rockingham County or even out of state in some cases. Offering on-site crematory services gives families another level of confidence that their loved one is being cared for with the up most dignity and respect,” said Mr. Cooke The greatest misunderstanding about cremation is the belief that with cremation there is no need for services. A service with or with out the body present is an important first step in helping a

bereaved family overcome their grief while offering family and friends the opportunity to gather together to celebrate the life that has been lived. Services or ceremonies can precede or follow the actual cremation, these can be tailor made to accommodate the families preferences whether it is simple, elaborate, religious, contemporary or secular. Families often choose to have a visitation and traditional funeral service with cremation following the service. Others choose to have a memorial or celebration of life service with or without the cremated remains present. The options are virtually endless and are completely up to the families’ preference. Boone & Cooke Inc has developed the phrase “Timeless Traditions… Today’s Transitions”. Daniel Boone states: “ We are very much a traditional funeral establishment. Our principles are rooted deep in the traditional facets of the funeral profession, however we also recognize the greater responsibility to our community to provide

options and opportunities that have been not fully offered before. Navigating the passages of life can be a difficult journey and very overwhelming. We are here to walk with our families with honor, dignity and humility during their time of loss and to offer them opportunities along with options to celebrate the life

lived. “ Boone & Cooke Inc will hold a public open house in February to showcase their new Legacy Cremation Center. Be sure to stop by and see what they have to offer at 7671 NC Hwy 770, Eden. For more information call 336-623-3141.

Shaw Power Group receives thanks from City of Eden

From The Desks Of CITY HALL Training at resource center helps secure jobs By Mike Dougherty, Economic Development Director, City of Eden

The Eden Community Resource Center is an innovative collaboration between four entities - Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina, the City of Eden, Rockingham Community College and CenturyLink Communications. The center offers a range of classes to help people upgrade their skills and a place to apply for jobs. Classes include computer training, human resource development, GED and English as a second language. Classes are also offered on Excel, Quickbooks, Power Point and Word computer programs. Many classes at the center are free of charge and scholarships may be available for some students. Between its Oct. 31, 2011 opening and Dec. 31, the center had helped more than 300 people and placed 22 people in jobs with wages ranging from $13 to $23 per hour. “I am happy that the center is seeing immediate results and making the difference in people’s lives,” stated Eden City Councilman Wayne Tuggle, also a former educator in Rockingham and Guilford counties. Councilman Jim Burnette has also been pleased with the initial results. “We were able to spearhead this center through in a remarkably short amount of time and I am sure those people who now are employed as a result of this center appreciate the efforts to open this facility,” he said. Other classes are being considered for the center including an automotive maintenance class and one for medical interpreters. For more information on the center, call 623-3007 or visit www.triadgoodwill.org. The center is located at 220 W. King’s Hwy., Suite H, in Kingsway Plaza Shopping Center (next to Pebble’s department store).

The Shaw Power Group, the company building the new Eden Duke Energy facility, received a special Eden City Council proclamation in recognition for their generosity to the Eden community during the 2011 holiday season. “A little Sacrifice” an organization started by a Shaw employee and highway patrolman donated more then $17,000 to the Eden Salvation Army in 2011. Shaw employee Sherry Cleary and her “elves” assembled, packed and distributed food boxes to Eden families. More that one hundred and twenty volunteer hours were spent to help families in need. Two hundred and seventy seven, representing four hundred and eighty five children in Eden and surrounding areas were served by the salvation Army this year. The Shaw Power Group was invaluable to helping the salvation army achieve its goals. The Shaw Power Group has employed more than four hundred workers to build the gas-powered Eden Duke Energy facility. In Addition to their generosity during the holiday season, Shaw employees have cleared snow for residents along the road of the facility, enforced safe driving habits, and employed traffic officers so their workers do not disrupt local traffic. Eden Mayor John Grogan presented the proclamation to representatives of the Shaw Power Group January 17. “Shaw has done an outstanding job in the responding to our community needs,” Stated Grogan. “They are the epitome of a good corporate citizen and we are pleased to honor them with this proclamation.

JONES

ANNOUNCES

COUNTY

CITIZENS HAVE CASH OR STOCKS OWED TO THEM

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.

For The Fun Of It Clothes Line

Little Old Lady

A clothesline was a news forecast To neighbors passing by, There were no secrets you could keep When clothes were hung to dry.

There was a little old lady, who every morning stepped onto her front porch,raised her arms to the sky, and shouted: 'PRAISE THE LORD!' One day an atheist moved into the house next door. He became irritated at the little old lady. Every morning he'd step onto his front porch after her and yell: 'THERE IS NO LORD!' Time passed with the two of them carrying on their way every day. One morning, in the middle of winter, the little old lady stepped onto her front porch and shouted: 'PRAISE THE LORD! Please Lord, I have no food and I am starving, provide for me, oh Lord! The next morning she stepped out onto her porch and there were two huge bags of groceries sitting there. 'PRAISE THE LORD!' she cried out. 'HE HAS PROVIDED GROCERIES FOR ME!' The atheist neighbor jumped out of the hedges and shouted: 'THERE IS NO LORD; I BOUGHT THOSE GROCERIES!!' The little old lady threw her arms into the air and shouted: 'PRAISE THE LORD! HE HAS PROVIDED ME WITH GROCERIES AND MADE THE DEVIL PAY FOR THEM!'

It also was a friendly link For neighbors always knew If company had stopped on by To spend a night or two. For then you'd see the "fancy sheets" And towels upon the line; You'd see the "company table cloths" With intricate designs. The line announced a baby's birth From folks who lived inside As brand new infant clothes were hung, So carefully with pride! The ages of the children could So readily be known By watching how the sizes changed, You'd know how much they'd grown! It also told when illness struck, As extra sheets were hung; Then nightclothes, and a bathrobe, too, Haphazardly were strung. It also said, "Gone on vacation now" When lines hung limp and bare. It told, "We're back!" when full lines sagged With not an inch to spare! New folks in town were scorned upon If wash was dingy and gray, As neighbors carefully raised their brows, And looked the other way .. . .. But clotheslines now are of the past, For dryers make work much less. Now what goes on inside a home Is anybody's guess! I really miss that way of life. It was a friendly sign When neighbors knew each other best By what hung on the line.
