City contributes to SKAT transportation system By Mike Dougherty, Economic Development Director

The City of Eden allocated $14,000 in its 2012-2013 annual budget to support the SKAT transportation system that started in Eden in early January. The request was made by Aging, Disability and Transport Services of Rockingham County that operates the system. The agency will also seek sponsors for the planned

shelters at various stops along the route. The kick-off of the SKAT transportation system took place at 7 a.m. on Jan. 7 at the Eden Chamber of Commerce. Fox 8 and News 14 Carolina joined local print media outlets in covering the ribbon cutting conducted by Mayor John Grogan. Area dignitaries took a ceremonial ride along the route before a breakfast was held in the Chamber of Commerce office. Since Jan. 7, numerous citizens have requested route schedThe Skat bus system is up and running! ules or visited “The City of Eden is pleased to support this transportation system that will help our citizens travel to where they need to be whether it is a doctor’s appointment, the grocery store or the Community Resource Center,” Grogan said. If the Eden system is successful, the transportation system will be expanded to other parts of Rockingham County. Rides are very reasonable at $1 per trip. A 10-ride pass is $10, 20-ride pass is $20, or a monthly pass for unlimited rides is $35. For more information on the SKAT system, visit or call 349-2343.

Dear friends, UMAR @ The ROC needs your help! UMAR is in its third year of managing the operation of the Rockingham Opportunity Center (ROC) in Wentworth, NC. The center serves 67 developmentally disabled participants enrolled in the day services program. We are excited about what has happened at the ROC in the last two years. UMAR @ The ROC allows many of these individuals to work on projects provided by various industries and small businesses in the county. The ROC contracts janitorial and lawn maintenance services to local residents and businesses. Last Christmas, almost 700 poinsettia plants from the greenhouse were sold to individuals and churches. The ROC is looking forward to its flower sale this spring and in the fall of 2013. There is also a hand-bell ministry team and a growing arts program at the center. But every aspect of this ministry requires funds and we invite you to join us in an effort to raise some of those funds. We are planning our 3rd Golf Scramble to benefit UMAR @ The ROC on Friday, May 17, 2013. Plantation Golf Club in Reidsville, NC will be hosting the event. Registration will begin at noon, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. We invite you to join us as a sponsor or as a participant for this event. The attached sponsor/participant form shows the opportunities that are available. By being a sponsor or a participant in this event you will be supporting the ministry of UMAR @ The ROC and making a difference in the lives of others. God calls us to reach out to the world and this is another opportunity for that to happen. We are anticipating a highly successful and well-attended outing. Our goal this year is to reach at least 60 persons (15, 4-person teams). We hope to raise enough funds to assist in the many ways UMAR @ The ROC makes a difference in the life of our community. All net proceeds will benefit UMAR @ The ROC. Please see the attached sponsor/participant form for more information. Entries/Sponsorships need to be received by Friday, May 10, 2013. We thank you in advance for your support for this cause that is so dear to our hearts! If you have any questions please contact me at the address below.

what to do with his life?” “Oh, he’s at a very difficult age,” Mrs. Griffin said. “What do you mean?” “Why, he’s simply caught in limbo: too old to live at home with us but too young to draw Social Security.”

Loved ones who have recently passed away. Mrs. Bryant studied nursing at Shakelford Hospital In Martinsville, when her studies were cut short when she fell backwards down elevator shaft while in service to a patient. Mrs. Bryant also survived colon cancer, broken hip and extensive back surgeries. Helena traveled the world, taking her family and 12 groups to China, Egypt, England, Hawaii, and Las Vegas among other places. Immediately after September 11, 2001, she traveled to Egypt to better understand The Arab culture. In her last days, she hated nothing more than being slowed down. Those who knew her agree that she was a force of nature, probably born a little ahead of her time. She is survived by her son, Millard Lee Bryant and wife, Gail Forgan Bryant, of Ferrum, Va; daughter, Judith Bryant Umminger, and husband, Bruce Umminger, of Chapel Hill; four grandchildren, Lisa Gail McMaken, Margaret Mattison, and Ethan Bryant; and sister, Ruth A.

Cone Health Information What is Nuclear Medicine? Nuclear Medicine is a part of Radiology that uses radiopharmaceuticals (a medicine with a radioactive tracer attached) to diagnose or treat processes in the body. Nuclear Medicine is a safe and non-invasive way to look at how a particular organ or body system is functioning. Studies Performed at Annie Penn Nuclear Medicine Bone Scan – Evaluation of the skeleton for fractures, osteomyelitis, or bone metastasis. Cardiac Stress Test – To ensure that the heart is receiving proper blood flow. Gastric Emptying – Making sure that the stomach is processing food properly. Hepatobiliary Scan – Evaluating the function of the gall bladder. Lung Imaging – For evaluation of a possible pulmonary embolism. Thyroid Uptake and Scan – Determination of overactive or underactive thyroid. Thyroid Ablation – Therapy for overactive thyroids and thyroid cancer. These are the most common studies that we perform, but there are many more tests that we do. X-Ray Procedure Description: An x-ray is a radiologt test that involves exposing the examined body parts quickly to radiation to create an image of that body part. An x-ray film is placed against the body opposite that camera, which sends out a very small dose of a radiation beam. As the radiation penetrates that body, it is absorbed in varying amounts by body tissues depending on the tissue’s composition. Patient Preparation: Unless directed by your physician, there is no preparation required for an x-ray. What to expect during and after the exam: A technologist will position your body to obtain the necessary views. During the x-ray exposure, you will remain still and hold your breath to prevent moving, which can distort the image. An x-ray may take only a few minutes to more than an hour depending on the type of x-ray ordered. Risk: X-rays have a minimal amount of radiation exposure. Any radiation expose has some risk to the tissues of the body. Anyone who thinks they may be pregnant should notify tech before the procedure. Reports: A radiologist, a physician trained in reading radiology examinations, will analyze the images and send a signed report with his or her interpretation to the ordering physician. You will receive your results from the ordering physician.Technologists do not read the exams. Ultrasound Procedure Description: An ultrasound generates sound waves that are beamed into the body, causing return echoes that are recorded to “envision” structures underneath the skin. The capability to measure different echoes reflected from a range of tissues allows a shadow picture to be formed. Patient Preparation: Your preparation for an ultrasound is minimal. If internal organs are being examined, you may be requested to avoid eating or drinking. If pelvic areas are to be examined,

you may be requested to drink several glasses of water approximately one to two hours prior to the examination to fill the bladder. What to expect during and after the exam: You will lie on a bed or stretcher in a dark room. The technologist will put lubricant on the body part being examined to make it easier for the ultrasound probe to glide over the skin. If you are to have a vaginal or prostate exam, then the probe will be inserted. The exam can range from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the type of exam the physician orders. Risk: There are no known risks to ultrasounds. Anyone who thinks they may be pregnant should notify tech before the procedure. Reports: A radiologist, a physician trained in reading radiology examinations, will analyze the images and send a signed report with his or her interpretation to the ordering physician. You will receive your reults from the ordering physician. Technologists do not read the exams. Computed Tomography (CT scan) Procedure Description: A CT scan uses special x-ray equipment to transmit a pencil- or fanshaped x-ray beam as it rotates 360 degrees around your body. This generates cross-sectional images of the body. A CT scanner has a large doughnut-shaped hole with a narrow table in the middle. The longest scan is ten minutes long and your average time in the department is 30 minutes. Patient Preparation: You will need to remove any metal objects such as jewelry that might obstruct the image results. Some exams require that you drink a contrast material one to two hours prior to your exam. You will either have a contrast material bu IV injection, mouth, rectally or a combination of the three depending on physician orders. IV contrast may cause a warm flush feeling such as a hot flash, a metallic taste in your mouth and a warm feeling in your pelvic area. Notify your technologist if you have a known allergy to the contrast dye or material or any substance that contains iodine, have diagnosed heart failure, have diabetes and are on medication, have a history of kidney problems, and become anxious in enclosed spaces or are claustrophobic. What to expect during and after the exam: The technologist will position you on the CT table and request you to place your arms above your head. However, the technologist will do everything possible to make you comfortable. Once the exam begins, the table will move slowly into the round opening of the CT scanner while the x-ray tube rotates around your body. You

may hear a clicking or buzzing sound as the table moves through the machine. When your exam is over, you may be asked to wait until the images are reviewed to determine if more images are needed. Risk: CT scans do involve exposure to radiation in the form of x-rays. The amount of radiation received is about the same as the amount of background radiation the average person relieves from the environment over a three-year period. Anyone who thinks they may be pregnant should notify tech before the procedure. Reports: A radiologist, a physician trained in reading radiology examinations, will analyze the images and send a signed report with his or her interpretation to the ordering physician. You will receive your reults from the ordering physician. Technologists do not read the exams. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR) Procedure Description: An MR is a procedure in which radio waves and powerful magnets linked to a computer are used to create clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues without the use of radiation. An MR has a long tunnel shape with a table in the middle. Patient Preparation: You will need to remove certain types of metals such as jewelry, watch, hair pins, bobby pins, hearing aids, removable dental work and glasses. The MR machine is a confined space; therefore, if you are extremely claustrophobic, check with clinical staff to see if administration of a sedative is possible. IV contrast, using saline solution, may be used depending on the study. This contrast is not the same as the contrast used for CT scans and does not contain iodine. What to expect during and after the exam: The technologist will position you on a special sliding table that moves into the MR machine during your exam. You will be under continuous observation and will be able to talk to the technologist at all times. You may hear a banging noise during the procedure. You will be asked not to move during the imaging process. The exam can range from 30 minutes to one hour. When the exam is done, you may be asked to wait until the images are reviewed to decide if more images are needed. Risk: The MR process produces no pain and causes no short- or long-term damage. There is no radiation exposure, which reduces the risk when having an MR. Anyone who thinks they may be pregnant should notify tech before the procedure. Reports: A radiologist, a physician trained in reading radiology examinations, will analyze

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life

Register for "Free" Emergency Notifications Rockingham County Emergency Services Director Johnny Bowles advises all Rockingham County residents to register as soon as possible with DeltAlert to receive emergency information during a major event or disaster. You can also receive non-emergency information as well as severe weather notifications. Bowles recommends that local citizens sign up for a "free" account to start receiving notifications. It only takes a couple of minutes to register : Rockingham County has contracted with DeltAlert to provide this high-speed notification system for local citizens. The DeltAlert system provides Rockingham County officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire county. Bowles cautioned that such systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. "If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called.” “No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included,” Bowles said urging all individuals and businesses to log onto the Rockingham County website: or Rockingham County Emergency Services website: a n d follow the link to the "DeltAlert Notification Registration” page. Those without Internet access may call Rockingham County Emergency Services at 336-634-3017, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number. Additional phone numbers can be entered as well. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number. Bowles explained, "DeltAlert allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages." Questions should be directed to the Rockingham County Emergency Services, 336-634-3017.

Leads group needs you The Rockingham County Leads Group meets every Wednesday, 12 noon at Eden’s El Parrel located at 734 South Van Buren Rd. Meeting is in the back area near bar.

Also one member will have the opportunity to make a ten minute presentation about their business. We encourage members to come early and stay late, bring their business cards, flyers, brochures and other advertising materials.

Triad Goodwills accepting donations for local chapter of Lions Club International Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina, Inc. (Triad Goodwill) has partnered with District 31-D Lions Clubs to assist with the collection of eyeglasses and hearing aids. According to district governor and Hamilton Lakes club member, Howard Wallace, “This partnership originated from an existing relationship one of our members had with Triad Goodwill. We are proud to partner with Triad Goodwill to make it easy for people to donate eyeglasses that can be repurposed and given to people through the international SightFirst Program.” Last year, the District 31-D Lions Clubs collected 800-900 pairs of glasses, helping to provide the gift of sight for needy children and adults.

Health Tips About Medication Storage! What’s the worst thing that can happen if you take a medication that is past its expiration date? The medicine will just be a little bit weak, right? Wrong. Although that’s true in most cases, some outdated medications can become toxic and actually make you sick. Knowing how to store medications, as well as when and where to dispose of them safely, is just as important as knowing how and when to take your medications. Follow these tips and you’ll be on the right track. When your pharmacist sends you home with a new medication, keep it in its original container, which has your name and dosing information on it. Be sure to re-lock bottles with child-resistant packaging. Many medications—especially those harmful to children—are put in foil packaging. If you find these difficult to open, talk with your pharmacist. For each medication, the law provides for one type of package without child-resistant features. If you don’t have children in your home, these might work best for you (although consider whether young children ever visit your home). But whatever you do, don’t transfer your medications into an empty bottle. Someone else may take them, not knowing they belong to you. It’s been known to happen. If you’re unsure, ask your pharmacist about the best place to store your medications. To keep children and pets safe, store medications in a high, locked cabinet. If that’s not possible, find a place that’s difficult for children to see and reach. Remember: A young child has no idea that these colorful objects are not candy. And even over-the-counter medications and vitamins—particularly those containing iron—can be dangerous, especially if taken in large amounts by children. To keep a medication safe and potent, keep it out of direct sunlight in a cool, dry place. Some medications are affected by humidity, so the bathroom medicine cabinet isn’t always best. Other medications require refrigeration, but don’t keep medications there unless instructed to do so by your doctor or pharmacist. It may be wise to keep a reserve supply of medications, in the event of an emergency. For example, if you need medications for a chronic condition, such as diabetes, asthma, HIV, or a psychiatric condition, carry at least a three to five day supply with you in a purse or briefcase in labeled containers. Make sure these are in child-resistant containers and that your purse or briefcase is kept out of the reach of children. As for medication disposal, make it a part of your spring (and fall) cleaning ritual. Check expiration dates, but even if the medication is not dated, think of it as expired at one year after purchase. Also, dispose of a medication if it has changed colors or developed an unusual odor—even if it’s not past its expiration date. Don’t put medications or vitamins into open trash containers or down the toilet. Instead, ask your pharmacist how to properly dispose of your medications. This is the best way to protect family pets, children, people who might scrounge through your trash—and the environment. Medications are expensive, so it may be tempting to use them, even when they’ve expired. If this is your thinking, just remember the greater potential cost to you: your health and safety. Eden Drug is a full service, family owned pharmacy serving the individual needs of our patients.

Tourism Development Authority approves trys strategy At its January Board meeting, the Rockingham County Tourism Development Authority (TDA) took action on several new business agenda items. The TDA Board members voted to support the new, proposed Economic Development Strategy that was a result of the Johnson/Parnell economic development report from 2012. The proposal for the new strategy consolidates the efforts of Economic Development, Tourism Development and the Business Technology Center. In other action, the TDA also committed funds towards producing a new issue of Our Town

magazine. The TDA will share the cost of production on this project with the Partnership for Economic and Tourism Development. Production of the new issue of Our Town will begin in the next two months. Finally, the TDA adopted a new, three-year marketing plan that will begin in July. Objectives of the new plan focus on building and strengthening Rockingham County’s outdoor recreation brand; capturing more overnight, leisure travelers; working with other County leaders to enhance existing tourism attractions and developing new ones; collaborating with

The ROCKINGHAM Economic Development officials to recruit tourism-related businesses and industries; creating local pride; and supporting the efforts of the cities and towns in their tourism development initiatives. The new marketing plan includes specific strategies and tactics for accomplishing those objectives. Examples of tactics in the plan include print advertising, online advertising, social media, public relations, speaking engagements and new collateral development. The plan also suggests establishing a Rockingham County Sports Commission that will work to attract large sporting/recreation events to the County. In order to entice more leisure travelers to spend the night in local hotels, the new plan includes collaborative tactics to enhance existing tourism attractions and potentially develop new ones. It also suggests creating a plan to encourage entrepreneurs to start tourism-related businesses in Rockingham County as well as targeting larger companies in tourism-related industries as part of economic development. The plan includes specific goals to be attained each year such as increasing occupancy tax revenue and the percentage of leisure travelers in local hotels. It also includes a list of measurement tactics so the TDA can track the effectiveness of its efforts.

County Manager Salutes Citizens as "Boss of the Month" Rockingham County Manager Lance Metzler is saluting local citizens who visit the Rockingham County Governmental Center. Each month, candid photos will be shot of citizens visiting the Governmental Center, 371 NC 65, in Wentworth. One citizen will be selected and highlighted by the County as "Boss of the Month." The first citizen chosen in 2013 for "Boss of the Month" is David Flynt of Madison. "Our Rockingham County citizens are Flynt very special to all of us in Rockingham County Government," Metzler said. "I Metzler says came up with this idea to honor a "ultimate Rockingham County citizen as "Boss of the Month" in order to remind employees that responsibility is our ultimate responsibility is to serve our to serve our citizens." citizens" Several framed photos of the "Boss of the Month" are displayed in the Governmental Center, on the County's homepage, and the County's Facebook page.

RCC Student honored for Academic Excellence Jessica Baron, daughter of Cathy and Rob Baron of Stokesdale, has been selected as the 2013 Academic Excellence Award recipient for Rockingham Community College. Baron, a Rockingham Early College High School senior, has a 4.0 grade point average, out of a possible 4.0, in her college classes. Each year one student is chosen at each of the state’s 58 community colleges to receive the prestigious award. “I’m so happy,” said Baron. “I’m the first RECHS student to receive the award. And to be chosen out of all the students in the entire college means a lot.” When nominating Baron for the honor, English Department Director, Dr. Robert Brandon, wrote, “One of the cornerstones of Baran liberal arts education is the belief that education transforms people and that well-educated people transform society. I have confidence that if selected, Jessica will honor our institution as she moves forward and takes advantage of her limitless potential.” Brandon cited Baron’s involvement in clubs, community service, leadership roles, mentoring roles, and her commitment to academics. “Jessica excels at everything she does,” said Brandon. “I have encountered many fine students during my tenure at RCC, but few have been as academically well-rounded.” Rockingham Early College High School is located on the RCC campus. Its students begin taking college classes their freshman year. After graduating from the high school, its students can take one more year of college classes and graduate from RCC with a two-year associate degree. Baron will graduate from high school in May 2013. Her goal is to finish an associate in arts degree from RCC and transfer to the University of North Carolina-Wilmington in 2014, where she will pursue a degree in computer science with a minor in digital arts. She would like to concentrate her career in video game graphics.

With blood drives held every week throughout Rockingham County, there are countless opportunities for donors to help improve the lives of others and possibly improve their homes, as well. “Donating blood only takes about an hour, but the benefits can be lifesaving for a patient in your community,” said Delisa English, chief executive officer, Carolinas Blood Services Region. “This time of year is always challenging, but we hope our dedicated donors continue to make it a priority to build a better blood supply.” The Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region provides lifesaving blood to patients in 103 hospitals.

Alchemy of the Continuing Ed Changed Daves into a Nurse

Daves Former Rockingham Community College student, Tamela Daves, has made it: she was recently promoted to director of nursing at Morehead Nursing Center in Eden. “It’s the hardest but most rewarding job I’ve ever had,” said Daves. What’s hard: “Even at home, I’m still on call.” What’s rewarding: The residents, the staff, the sense of making a difference in people’s lives.” Saying her current job is the most rewarding one she’s had is saying a lot. Daves loved being a CNA, was passionate about her work as a wound care nurse, and discovered a love of teaching nursing courses and concepts. Her introduction to nursing came in 1988, after eight years as a hairdresser. “It occurred to me one day that if anything happened to my husband, we couldn’t depend on my income to provide for the family,” said Daves. “That’s when I decided I needed to do something else.” Daves sought help at RCC. She was directed to the college’s HRD (Human Resource Development) program. There she took a battery of interest

tests. Those tests pointed her toward nursing. “I always wanted to be a nurse,” said Daves. “But I was only an average student in high school and thought only the smart, “straight A” students could go into nursing.” Encouraged by the tests and by continuing education personnel, Daves enrolled in the certified nursing assistant program. From the beginning, she said, the division’s dean, Lisa Hendren (retired), encouraged, mentored and prodded her to succeed. “She didn’t categorize people by intelligence or skills, but by what they wanted to achieve,” said Daves. “Once she knew that, she told you step-by-step what you needed to do to achieve your goal. And during the times I didn’t think I would make it, she was there giving me counsel and pushing me toward success.” Daves succeeded and was employed by Annie Penn Hospital after passing the CNA certification exam. At Annie Penn, nurses encouraged her to continue her education. When her youngest child started school, she followed their advice and enrolled in RCC’s advanced nursing degree program. A 1996 graduate, she began a nursing career that took her into public health, home care nursing, long term care, and teaching (she was the CNA program coordinator at RCC from 1998-2008). At every step she has followed in Lisa Hendren’s footsteps: mentoring others as they try to reach their goals. “RCC is a great school. There are so many opportunities there for people. I cherish the time I spent there.”

Protect Your Family From The Flu The 2012 – 2013 influenza season continues to wreak havoc across the state of North Carolina, with a second peak of Influenza-like Illness (ILI) noted the week ending 12/29/12. It is important to understand that a peak in flu cases does not mean the season is over – it means we are likely just half way through the cases for the year. People should still get their flu shot immediately if they have not already received it for the 2012 – 2013 flu season. Seasonal flu is a highly contagious illness that affects the respiratory system. The flu can be both incapacitating and lifethreatening, especially for children younger than five, adults 65 years of age or older, pregnant women and those with compromised immune systems due to certain illnesses or diseases. The flu vaccination remains the most effective method to avoid contracting and spreading the flu. In addition to receiving a flu vaccination, there are other practices one can take to avoid contracting and/or spreading the flu. Other basic flu prevention steps include: - Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. - Wash your hands often with soap and water. Alcohol-based cleaners are also effective. - Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. - Stay home from school and/or work if you are sick and do not return until at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine. - Disinfect your environment at home and in the workplace. - Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.

Edward Jones firm makes list for 14th year Financial-services firm Edward Jones ranked No. 8 on FORTUNE magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For 2013" list in its 14th appearance on the prestigious list, according to Kathy Hale, a Financial Advisor in the community. In January 2013, for the 14th year, Edward Jones was named one of the best companies to work for by FORTUNE Magazine in its annual listing. The firm ranked No. 8 overall. These 14 FORTUNE rankings include 10 top-10 finishes, consecutive No. 1 rankings in 2002 and 2003, and consecutive No. 2 rankings in 2009 and 2010. Currently, Edward Jones has 4,630 positions available throughout the country, mostly for financial advisor and branch office administrator. Each Edward Jones branch office includes one financial advisor and one branch office administrator who work one-onone with clients in the communities where those clients live. To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third of the scoring is based on the company's responses to the institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communications, training, recognition programs and diversity. The Eden financial advisors include: Kathy Hale on Pierce Street and Mike Avina on Monroe Street. Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the US and Canada. Every aspect of the firm's business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which they live and work. The financial advisors work directly with nearly 7 million clients to understand their personal goals -- from college savings to retirement -- and create long-term investment solutions.

FORTUNE and Time Inc. are not affiliated with and do not endorse products or services of Edward Jones.

Rockingham County Naturalist Club invites you to join their educational walks Join the Rockingham County naturalist club in February and March and enjoy leisurely educational Walks. Following are the clubs events for the upcoming season.

The hike will include a visit to the pond, as well as the creek, and we will visit the old King – Stewart family cemetery. Bob Carter will be the leader of this walk which is rated moderately difficult. • March 17 - Sunday - Bobby Irving will guide us on a walk in the woods belonging to this family in Wentworth on a tributary of Massey Creek.

Dan River Basin Association to Visit Reynolds Homestead The Dan River Basin Association's First Saturday Outing on February 2, 2013 will be a visit to Reynolds Homestead in Critz, Virginia, including a one-mile loop hike and tours of the historic house and grounds. Participants will meet at 10:00 a.m. at the entrance to the Continuing Education Center at Reynolds Homestead (GPS 36.640596, -80.146542), to begin the day's activities. An outreach campus of Virginia Tech, Reynolds Homestead features the birthplace and boyhood home of tobacco magnate R.J. Reynolds and a Forest Resources Research Center in the midst of 780 acres of fields and woodlands. "The Reynolds Homestead and forestry practices hike is easily DRBA's most popular and best attended hiking outing," according to DRBA Board member and trip coordinator, Wayne Kirkpatrick. Since DRBA's last visit to the site two years ago, significant changes have occurred along the Forestry Management walking trail. Managed forests demonstrate old and young stands of loblolly pines, a native grass field managed for wildlife, and research ponds that provide wildlife habitat. Along the way hikers will see the historic spring that inspired the name, Rock Spring Plantation, of this 18th century tobacco estate near the face of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Views from the trail include the nearest peak, the curiously named No Business Mountain, so called, according to tradition, because visitors had "no business" looking for the family still. In 2010 two major improvements were made at the Homestead. The African American Cemetery was enhanced with plantings, grave

markings, fencing, signage, and a walkway for visitors. A new gateway entrance was dedicated in October, 2012 honoring the tobacco and aluminum foil legacy of the Reynolds family. Visitors to the Continuing Education Center can view drawings of planned renovations to the Center. In addition, a log tobacco barn was reconstructed near the trail from materials salvaged from three early barns, including the one on site. The barn will help interpret the history of tobacco growing and curing that formed the foundation of the Reynolds family fortune. Afternoon tours of the state and national landmark historic site will be offered at a cost of $3.00 per adult and $2.00 per student, payable to the tour guide. Built in 1843, the two-story brick home was restored in 1970 to its nineteenth century state and includes many of the original family furnishings. The son of Hardin and Nancy Reynolds, R. J. Reynolds was born here in 1853. In 1874 he moved to Winston, North Carolina and established a tobacco factory, which grew to a multimillion-dollar company. When he died in 1918 at the age of 65, he was the wealthiest man in North Carolina. The grounds feature several outbuildings, including a log icehouse and log granary, a brick milk house, and a brick kitchen. In the kitchen hangs a picture of Kitty Reynolds, a slave who tradition says saved Hardin Reynolds's life by distracting a raging bull. In 1880 a landmark U. S. Supreme Court decision resulting from the flawed murder trials of two of her sons guaranteed protection of legal rights of former slaves. Participants in the outing should supply drinks and lunch,

Funds raised at Relay For Life of Rockingham County are enabling the American Cancer Society to impact the lives of those touched by cancer within the community. There will be a Team Captain meeting at Rockingham Community College on Feb 7th. in the RCC Science Building, Room SC 106 at 6 pm.

Berger, Pyrtle re-elected To Project Safe The Board of Directors for Project SAFE Rockingham County re-elected Rockingham County District Attorney Phil Berger, Jr. and Eden Police Chief Reece Pyrtle as Chairman and Vice-Chairman, respectively. The two will serve another one year term. “This program continues to exceed all of my expectations,” said Pyrtle. “It is also another great example of the people across Rockingham County working together to address quality of life issues. I am proud to be associated with such a great group of law enforcement officers, community leaders, service providers, and concerned citizens. This program is making a difference in our community.” Project SAFE Rockingham County is a partnership between the US Attorney’s Office, Middle District, the District Attorney’s Office, federal, state, and local law enforcement, North Carolina Community Corrections, UNC-Greensboro, and many community partners. The program is designed to reduce gun violence by identifying high-risk offenders and focusing law enforcement, prosecutorial, and community resources on those individuals. The program has proven successful in Rockingham County. More than 200 high-risk, violent offenders have been impacted by the program, and only one individual has re-offended with a firearms-related offense. Last year alone, Rockingham County experienced a 31% reduction in the violent crime rate, and while many factors led to this change, Project SAFE is a big part of this reduction. “Project SAFE is a successful, proven strategy in reducing gun violence in Rockingham County,” said Berger. “I am grateful for the opportunity to continue as Chairman of this organization which seeks to keep the people of Rockingham County safe by holding gun-toting criminals accountable.”


“I just love these people. Most days, they’re the only people I see, and the meals are great!” That was the sentiment expressed by 78 year-old “Sallie” when asked about Meals on Wheels, a service of Aging, Disability & Transit Services of Rockingham County. This sentiment is shared by more than 200 homebound people who receive meals each weekday across Rockingham County. Thanks to the generosity and support of Rockingham County citizens, volunteers and area businesses, Sallie is right, Meals on Wheels is more than a hot meal, it is the comfort of knowing someone will be stopping by to check on her and others like her. While we serve more than 200 homebound people each day, the need continues to grow as does our waiting list. That is why we are inviting you to join us for “Eat Out…Help Out” on Tuesday, March 26, 2013. By agreeing to donate just 10% of your day’s sales, you are helping to feed Sallie and many others like her who rely on Meals on Wheels to meet their basic nutritional needs.

Achievements & New Strategies As Project SAFE Rockingham County approaches the end of its second year of grant funding, the anti-gun violence coalition has made a substantial impact on violent crime. And while aggravated assaults, robberies and murders have dropped significantly in the last couple of years, law enforcement executives are forging ahead with expansion of strategies to address other vital areas of crime reduction, suppression and inter-

vention. PSRC Achievements: Call-ins and Violent Crime Reduction. Over the last year, the police and sheriff’s departments experienced a 31% drop in violent crime, and much of the success has been attributed to Project SAFE Rockingham County (PSRC), along with other aggressive law enforcement efforts. Worthy of note, all six departments experienced significant declines, with as much as an eighty-percent drop in one western town. PSRC has conducted two chronic offender notifica-

tions, or call-ins, where 26 violent criminals, selected from the group most likely to re-offend, were warned to stop gun violence. These offenders were told of specific consequences for continued violent behavior, and offered assistance by services agencies, probation and parole, and community volunteers in developing and maintaining a crime-free lifestyle. A third callin, for gang offenders, was held to address crimes of violence perpetrated by the 28 gangs around the county. In that call-in, 16 gang members, representing 6 of the most violent gangs and a membership of 180, were given the anti-violence ultimatum. They were ordered to return to their gangs and tell the membership that they were all under the warning – and that each member’s criminal actions would affect the entire gang. To date, only one called-in offender has violated the ultimatum and committed another felony firearms offense. Eden Police Chief Reece Pyrtle, Vice-Chair of the PSRC Advisory Board, stated, “I think that the statistics reveal that violent offenders have come to realize that our local communities made up of law enforcement, community service providers, and concerned citizens – have dedicated themselves and believe in this program. The successful collaboration between these entities says a lot about the communities that make up Rockingham County.” • Gun Screenings. In addition to call-ins, PSRC has tightened scrutiny over all felony firearms cases. Under the leadership of District Attorney Philip Berger, Jr., every case in the county is now closely examined for optimal punishment in state or federal court. A positive outgrowth of the screenings has been that officers around the county have become more proficient in firearms investigations more quickly, and have improved the efficacy of serious investigations. • New Strategy: Greater Focus on Intervention with Youths. One of the objectives of PSRC in this year’s grant cycle is to place greater emphasis on atrisk youths and youth gang members by improving prevention measures and intervention tactics. The county-wide plan is to identify, intervene and refer youths to appropriate community services, primarily Rockingham County Youth Services. This objective, in part, will be achieved by the creation and implementation of a county-wide standard referral process for field officers, SROs and other law enforcement professionals. This process will promote officer awareness, and provide at-risk juveniles with earlier, easier

access to effective programs. Putting Down Guns, Picking Up Books and Computers. PSRC and Project Re-entry have intensified the pace in offering offenders direction and support. Recently, through the Basic Skills Department at RCC, tuition scholarships, a gift of the Reidsville Area Foundation, have been awarded to a couple of the notified offenders who applied and were selected. With encouragement and guidance from Project Re-entry and PSRC, other offenders have returned to school to complete their GED, while still others have found part- and full-time employment. • Project SAFE Rockingham County: What’s Next? A few of the Project SAFE Neighborhoods sites in the Federal Middle District have begun conducting juvenile callins, structured meetings similar to the adult version. At-risk adolescents are called in and warned about criminal lifestyles and the consequences. Though juvenile call-ins are a relatively new strategy, results are promising and PSRC, under the leadership of DA Berger, is researching the model for application in Rockingham County. Project SAFE Rockingham County is also pursuing an important project with one of the vital members in the community-law enforcement partnership, the local church. PSRC is collaborating with area ministers to establish an effective mentoring program where church volunteers can assist notified offenders who are re-entering mainstream society. For some violent offenders, the need exists to improve parenting or life skills. For others, there is the need to enhance communication and interpersonal skills to help them find employment. A mentoring program is an essential component of an overall plan to assist violent offenders in turning from criminal lifestyles. As PSRC moves toward completion of its second year, law enforcement executives are pleased with results. Not only has there been a significant decline in the violent crime rate, but nearly all the violent offenders who have received the law enforcement ultimatum have heeded the warning and put down their guns. Wary of complacency, Project SAFE Rockingham County presses forward with new and aggressive goals. The coalition understands that its strategies must be fluid, diverse, and changing like the population it serves. Guilio Dattero is Project Manager for Project SAFE Rockingham County; he is retired from the Reidsville Police Department. of the week.” “Really?” “I sure do. Don’t know who to turn to, either.” “I’m very glad to hear that. It sounded for a moment like you were gonna turn to me.”

Genealogy help offered Information from more than 17,500 slave records from the 13 states of the antebellum slave holding South will be one of the highlights of the 2nd annual Discover Your Roots event scheduled Saturday, Feb. 16, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This year's program also will include a variety of other topics and exhibits of interest to those involved in genealogy. Exhibits and information on starting to search for family records also will be available at the event, sponsored by the Family History Center. It will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the church, located at 4751 N.C. 14 just south of Eden. Information can be obtained by calling 336-623-7154 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Saturdays or 336-280-1725. Following the opening ceremonies at 9 a.m., participants may choose from a variety of other programs. Charles Rodenbough will give updates on “The Sauratown Project” from 9:30-10:25 a.m. The Sauratown Project is a research project on the importation of “100 Negroes” into the Dan River valley of North Carolina, around 1775 by an Antigua merchant. The area, south of Eden, is the last Virgina-style tobacco plantation established before the Revolution by scions of Caribbean Nicole and Virginia aristocracy. The project began in September 2010. Nicole Mazgaj, who worked on the slave records projects will present the program, “The Race and Slavery Petitions Project and the Digital Library on American Slavery” from 10:30 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. A question-andanswer session will follow her presentation. Hands-on activities will include “How Do I Start My Family History,” by Elwanda Ensley, 9:30-10:25 a.m.; “Documenting Sources,” by Debbie Cummings, 10:30-11:25 a.m.; and “Organizing Your Family History and Leaving a Legacy,” by Peggy Burton, 11:30 a.m.-12:25 p.m. The Family History Center will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. after which refreshments will be served. Ensley will help participants complete an initial data form and provide literature to aid in their search. She also will be available to start family trees as time permits. Burton's session will be of particular interest to people with family heirlooms as she will explain marking items with information for descendants. Burton has an extensive collection of family heirlooms. She will tell how she has designated them to certain descendants with explanations of the origin and history of the items. Family information Burton has obtained over the years is kept in a number of large binders,

arranged by generations. She will explain how she keeps these records. Cummings, a certified genealogist, has traced her family back to Virginia in the early to mid 1700s. She thinks her family came from Ireland, but hasn’t come across any proof of it. That is why she enjoys helping people learn how to document the information they find on their ancestors. Rockingham native Jimmy Maus will have a display of artifacts and other materials from the Saura Indian village on the Dan River opposite the Duke Power Plant. The Indians lived in the area from 1600 to 1700. Other exhibits will feature the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), organizing records, the Madison Colored School Restoration Project, Blue Ridge Mountain Ancestors highlighting Boyd, Hall, Pendleton, Wood(s), Hylton, Belcher and Weaver families, and accessing/using The Slavery History Project began in 1991 when Dr. Loren Schweninger, professor emeritus of history and prominent scholar of race and slavery in the antebellum South, undertook a historical study of slavery and the law. Initially, he planned to emphasize the role of women within the slave holding system. Mazgaj For several years, Schweninger traveled to county courts and state archives to collect civil court cases, called “petitions.” These typically were filed by individuals from all walks of life seeking legal redress for a variety of grievances, such as debts, bad business deals gone, estate settlements, slaves seeking freedom, divorces and alimony, human property disputes and owners seeking to free their slaves. These cases were filed between the end of the War of Independence and the end of the Civil War. Schweninger only collected cases involving enslaved or free people of African descent, as petitioners, defendants, witnesses, or, most often, subjects of the grievances. His objective was to understand the interplay among the multiple societal bodies that sustained the institution of slavery: its economic structure and implications and the legal underpinnings it sustained. Schweninger and his team of editors realized the detailed information about slaves in the documents could and should be a tool of genealogical research. For more than 20 years, the team collected data of Americans of African descent, organized it into biographical information and entered it into a computer database. This information included names and nicknames, gender, age, skills, professions, physical characteristics, medical conditions and diseases, name(s) of

slaveholders and periods of slave holding, plantation locations, family units and family separations, dates of acquisition and sale by an owner, purchase and sale value, dates of freedom or

enslavement. Then the technology team at the Jackson Library, University of North Carolina Greensboro, developed a public interface to make this information available

to the public. This tool, The Digital Library on American Slavery, has been available to the public since 2009.

What is the benefit of an x-ray? X-rays are ordered by your doctor to help diagnose bone injuries, tumors, blockages and other internal medical conditions. X-rays performed on specific parts of your body can help your doctor determine internal abnormalities. - Chest x-rays can rule out tuberculosis, cancer and other lung masses. - Abdominal x-rays can rule out kidney stones and intestinal blockages. - Spinal x-rays can help determine the cause of neck or back pain and rule out scoliosis. - Extremity x-rays (hands, feet, ankles, knees) can help diagnose fractures, gout, and arthritis. What to expect when having an x-rays? - You will be asked a number of questions related to your health and family history. - Most x-rays last less than 5 minutes. - The x-ray may be performed standing up or lying on a table. - You may or may not have to undress for the x-ray depending on the area of the body being x-rayed. - Once the test is complete, you will be free to drive yourself home. - The results will be sent to your doctor. - There are no shots, needles or medication given during the test. - The test may be covered by most insurance companies. Please ask before your procedure. - No appointment necessary for general x-rays. Bone Density Tests Who should consider a bone density test? People who may need to schedule a bone density test are: All women over the age of 65. Any man or woman over the age of 50 who has had a broken bone after this age. Post menopausal women under the age of 65 with other risk factors including history of frecture after age 50, low body weight, smoker and first degree female relative with adulthood fracture. Man or woman with long-term low calcium intake. Man or woman with weight loss. Man or woman with chronic steroid intake of greater than 2 months. What is the benefit of a bone density test? This test can predict fracture risk in the same manner that measuring blood pressure can help predict the risk of stroke. What to expect when having a bone density test? The test takes about 30 minutes. You will be asked a number of questions related to your health and family history. Your height and weight will be measured. You will lie on a table and three x-rays will be taken – one of the lower back and one of each hip. You do not have to undress for the test. The amount of radiation is less than having an x-ray of your chest.

This May Save Your Life! Written by a Lady Cop for Our Own Safety

Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one's life. In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation... This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know. 1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do! 2.. Learned this from a tourist guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you.... Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION! 3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives. 4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where togo. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCKTHE DOORS AND LEAVE. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they willget the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location. 5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage: A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling

them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars. C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side.. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.) 6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!) 7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern! 8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim. 9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard

a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..' The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.' He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of

their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night. 10. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack. Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors! Please pass

The General Fund is supported by tax dollars but the Enterprise Fund is funded 100% by user fees and those users will see the positive impact of operational improvements to our landfill.

Eden Preservation Society’s Annual Membership Drive to Recognize

Morehead-Fair House The Eden Preservation Society will be holding their Annual Membership Drive on Sunday, February 17, from 2 to 4 PM at the Morehead-Fair Home at 402 Boone Rd. The home has been carefully restored by Neil FarFair Funeral Home. The public is invited to join the Society. There will be light refreshments, a short program, and Neil Fair-Fair Funeral Home will be honored for the preservation and restoration of this historic home. The Morehead-Fair Home was built about 1900 for John M. Morehead, II, grandson of Governor John Motley Morehead. Following a number of subsequent owners, the home was ultimately purchased by Fair Funeral Home, and the Charles Fair family resided there until restoration began in 2010. The Eden Preservation Society works on many projects in the city, including the Eden Historical Museum on Washington St., Mill Superintendent’s House on Carroll St., Governor Morehead Park and Old Spray Cemetery on Church St., Barnett Family Cemetery on Hollingsworth St., and Reynolds-Morehead Cemetery off Stadium Dr.. The Society welcomes everyone to become supporters of its efforts to preserve and promote important landmarks of our city’s history.

For The Fun Of It Only When A driver is stopped by a police officer. The driver asks, "What's the problem officer?" Officer: "You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone." Man: "No sir, I was going 65." Wife: "Oh, Harry. You were going 80." (The man gives his wife a dirty look.) Officer: "I'm also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light." Man: "Broken tail light? I didn't know about a broken tail light!" Wife: "Oh Harry, you've known about that tail light for weeks." (The man gives his wife another dirty look.) Officer: "I'm also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seatbelt." Man: "Oh I just took it off when you were walking up to the car." Wife: "Oh Harry, you never wear your seatbelt." The man turns to his wife and yells, "SHUT IT PLEASE!" The Officer turns to the woman and asks, "Ma'am, does your husband talk to you this way all the time?" The wife says, "No, only when he's drunk."

Tell You “Dad, there’s something I’ve gotta tell you,” Shane said, following his father inside the bait shop. “Not, now, Son. I have to select our fish bait.” Later, entering the convenience store, Shane tried again. “Hey, Dad—” “Hold on, Son. I have to grab some lunch for our fishing trip.” At the gas station, dad was filling the boat tank when Shane began, “Dad, there’s something you really need to know….” “Just wait, Son. I need to pay for this gas so we can hit the road.” An hour later, as they sat on the pond bank catching fish, the father remembered his son’s nagging. “What was it you were trying to tell me awhile ago?” he asked. “Oh, not much. Just that your fly is open.”

To Be Six Again George was a thoughtful husband. He wanted to give his wife something special for her birthday which was coming up soon. As he sat on the edge of the bed, he watched his wife turning back and forth and looking at herself in the mirror. "Reta," he said, "What would you like for your birthday?" His wife continued to look at herself and said, "I'd like to be six again." George knew just what to do. On the big day, he got up early and made his wife a bowl of Fruit Loops. Then he took her to an amusement park where they rode all the rides. Five hours later, Reta's stomach felt upside down and her head was reeling. Never the less, George took her to McDonald's and bought her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Next, it was a movie with popcorn, soda and her favorite candy. As Reta wobbled into the house that evening and flopped on the bed, George asked her, "Well, Dear, what was it like to be six again?" Reta looked up at him. Her expression changed. She said, "I meant my dress size!"

Hot Bath Feeling edgy, a man took a hot bath. Just as he’d become comfortable, the front doorbell rang. The man got out of the tub, put on terry cloth slippers and a large towel, wrapped his head in a smaller towel, and went to the door. A salesman at the door wanted to know if he needed any magazines. Slamming the door, the man returned to the bath. The doorbell rang again. On went the slippers and towels, and the man started for the door again. He took one step, slipped on a wet spot, fell, and hit his back against the hard porcelain of the tub. Cursing under his breath, the man struggled into his street clothes and, with every move a stab of pain, drove to the doctor. After examining him, the doctor said, “You know, you’ve been lucky. Nothing is broken. But you need to relax. Why don’t you go home and take a long hot bath?”.

What Did You Learn? The child comes home from his first day at school. His Mother asks, "Well, what did you learn today?" The kid replies, "Not enough. They want me to come back tomorrow."

Ever Wonder? Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

A Bad Dream?

School Troubles

Jemima was taking an afternoon nap on New Year’s Eve before the festivities. After she woke up, she confided to Max, her husband, ‘I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond ring for a New Year’s present. What do you think it all means?’ ‘Aha, you’ll know tonight,’ answered Max smiling broadly. At midnight, as the New Year was chiming, Max approached Jemima and handed her small package. Delighted and excited she opened it quickly. There in her hand rested a book entitled: ‘The meaning of dreams’.

When I arrived for my daughter’s parent-teacher conference, the teacher seemed a bit flustered, especially when she started telling me that my little girl didn’t always pay attention in class and was sometimes a little flighty. “For example, she’ll do the wrong page in the workbook,” the teacher explained, “and I’ve even found her sitting in the wrong desk.” “I don’t understand that,” I replied defensively. “Where could she have gotten that?” The teacher went on to reassure me that my daughter was still doing fine in school and was sweet and likeable. Finally, after a pause, she added, “By the way, Mrs. Johnson, our appointment was for tomorrow.”.

600 Story Hotel 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.

Sherlock and Watson Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson were going camping. They pitched their tent under the stars and went to sleep. Sometime in the middle of the night Holmes woke Watson up and said: Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you see. Watson replied: I see millions and millions of stars. Holmes said: and what do you deduce from that? Watson replied: Well, if there are millions of stars, and if even a few of those have planets, its quite likely there are some planets like earth out there. And if there are a few planets like earth out there, there might also be life. And Holmes said: Watson, you idiot, it means that somebody stole our tent.

Hillbillies Ma: “I think Adam and Eve must have been hillbillies, just like us.” Pa: “What makes you say that?” Ma: “Didn’t have a fancy house. Didn’t drive a car. Didn’t go to college. Didn’t have any money—but as far as they were concerned, life was just like paradise.”

Tiger’s Snack

Dark "Dad, can you write in the dark?" "I think so. What is it you want me to write?" "Your name on this report card."

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.

The official ribbon cutting for Ernie’s Coin Shop’s new location: 417 S. 2nd Avenue, Mayodan. Ernie, third from right, welcomes everyone in the community to come in and stroll the aisles and see what he has to offer.

Buy One Entree, Get One Free

Find Inspiration from Ernie He’s been down in the past, but never out. And getting back on his feet was, brings on a special meaning for Ernie Johnson of Mayodan. Johnson owns Ernie’s Coin Shop & Collectibles, now located at 417 S. 2nd Avenue in Mayodan. For years his former location was in downtown Mayodan. With literally a little bit of everything, Ernie's’ is more that just a shop, it’s a place to go to get inspiration, a friendly smile, and occasionally, even a little good hearted advice. Ernie’s story is an inspiration in and of itself. At 72, is a double amputee. Since 2000 he has had both feet amputated, a heart attack and a total of 11 surgeries. You would think he has a lot to complain about, but you won’t here him complaining. Born and raised in Mayodan, Ernie worked since childhood, beginning with paper delivery as a young boy. The coin collected spurred from this enterprise as he was given a variety and they intrigued him. Most of his adult life he made a living hanging wallpaper, but when diabetes became a major problem in his life all that began to change. When he was told they surgeons had remove his left foot he was shaken to the core. Switching gears he decided that his love of coins could be the answer, so he opened a booth at the Eden Flea Market and sold from his wheelchair until he could master his prosthetic leg,

but then came his heart attack. Coming back from that surgery he was told that the other foot would have to also be amputated. Facing what he thought would be a life in a wheelchair he was determined to make a living and not be kept down by his medical problems. He persevered, learned to walk again with two prosthetic limbs, many who meet him would never know he was an amputee. He soon opened his own coin shop in Mayodan. Coin collectors began to swarm to him for his knowledge. But coins aren’t all he decided to feature. For years his small 700 square foot shop on W. Main Street in Mayodan brought coin collectors as well as movie and game lovers, and antique hunters into his shop. Then the time came to grow again, and recently he made the move to a 3,000 square foot facility in the former Brewers Movie store at 417 S. 2nd Street in Mayodan. Now there are shelves and shelves of unique odds and ends, collectibles, movies, games, glassware, antiques and much more, for every taste. It’s almost like a walk through history when you stroll the aisles, and talking with Ernie tops that off, he knows his local history. Ernie simply likes to help people. He is a self proclaimed “people person” who likes to be of any assistance he can. He buys items for reselling from people who come to him for help, which helps him help people and keeps his doors open.

Local Teens Create Dynamic Video about Bullying, Cyber-bullying and Dating Violence Over the past three months, a local group of students from John Motley Morehead High School and Rockingham County Student Health Centers took on the issues of bullying, cyber-bullying and dating violence and produced "I Deserve Better: A Short Trilogy". This three-part video was made possible through the Young Moms Connect Community Video Project and serves as the senior high school project for Annie Kate Smith. The students’ goal was to create videos that would raise awareness among their peers and their community. They used role-playing to create a powerful series that illustrates each issue and how it affects young people. To start, the students received training from a professional videographer (Chris Davis Photography), as well as the use of video equipment. The goal of the Community Video Project is for local community groups to create short videos with health and pregnancy-related messages for their peers. The Community Video Project is one of the many Young Moms Connect Project activities coordinated by the North Carolina Healthy Start Foundation, under contract with the NC Division of Public Health. The North Carolina Healthy

Start Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 1990, which conducts ongoing public education campaigns, advises state and local policy makers, and provides technical assistance and professional training focused on reducing infant death and illness and improving the health of women and young children in North Carolina. The Foundation also coordinates media, social media, a website and texting response service (TextMOMS to 66746) to support young pregnant women and new moms in the five Young Moms Connect Counties (Bladen, Nash, Onslow, Rockingham and Wayne counties.) View the video at: For more information about Young Moms Connect go to: ### Young Moms Connect is a collaborative partnership made possible through federal funding from the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistance Secretary for Health, Office of Adolescent Health (grant #SP1AH00004) to the NC Department of Health and Human Services – Division of Public Health, Women and Children’s Branch.

Gatewood retires from City of Eden

From The Desks Of CITY HALL

By Tommy Carter, Fleet Maintenance Superintendent

JT Gatewood’s retirement from the City of Eden was effective Jan. 1 after 17 years and 10 months of service. JT came to work in the city’s Fleet Maintenance division on Feb. 2, 1994. Prior to coming to work here, he was employed by Ivey Tire Company for several years as a front-end specialist. He also worked for a few other compa-

City honors business milestones At its January 2013 Eden City Council meeting, Mayor ProTem Wayne Tuggle and Director of Economic Development Mike Dougherty honored representatives of Mabe Trucking Company and Rockingham Insurance Agency on the significant milestones each had achieved in 2012: • Mabe Trucking Company - 25 Year Anniversary Owner Butch Mabe started this Fieldcrest Road business with one truck 25 years ago. Today, he has 175 trucks servicing his many clients within the county and surrounding areas. Mabe Trucking carries freight for companies such as Weil-McLain, KDH Defense Systems, Loparex and Gildan. They have expanded rapidly over recent years. One hundred and sixty people were employed at Mabe in 2009 and more than 270 work there today. In 2009, Mabe Trucking Company was honored as Carrier of the Year for Dollar General for its excellent work at the company’s South Boston, Va., distribution center. Operations Manager Mike Ussery accepted the award on behalf of the company. • Rockingham Insurance Agency, LLC - 60 Year Anniversary Rockingham Insurance Agency, LLC, was founded in 1952 by James E. Robertson and William G. Rudd. The agency specializes in auto, home, workers compensation, general liability, commercial property, com-

nies before settling into his position as a mechanic with the city. JT is what some would call an old-school mechanic … if he couldn’t find it, he would make it. This earned him the nickname of “The Blacksmith.” JT is a strong family man and has lived here in Eden most of his life so I’m sure his wife June and their children will find something to keep him busy. Everyone will miss his knowledge, experience and most of all his ability to make us laugh. We wish you the very best JT because you have earned it.

“I’ve had horrible indigestion for the past two days,” a patient said. “And what have you been doing for it?” asked the doctor. “Taking an antacid twice a day and drinking nothing but milk,” said the patient. “Good—exactly what I would have suggested myself. That’ll be $50.”

Home Savings Bank named Main Street Champion The Eden Downtown Development Corporation is pleased to announce that Home Savings Bank is its 2012 Eden Main Street Champion. Each year, the individual, business or organization that best exemplifies the spirit of the Main Street Downtown Revitalization Program is selected in each North Carolina Main Street community. Main Street is best described as economic development in the context of historic preservation. Home Savings Bank was chosen because of the following: · It remains one of only two downtown banks in Eden with the branch located on Washington Street. · Vice President of Retail Sales and Service Manager

Peggy Gammon is a member of the Eden Downtown Development Board of Directors and regularly attends the N.C. Annual Main Street Conference. · Home Savings Bank provided a generous donation to help fund the beautiful clock located in the Washington Street Park in the Historic Leaksville downtown area of Eden. · Home Savings Bank is a traditional sponsor of RiverFest, Eden’s signature annual festival. Gammon, Home Savings Bank President Jonathan Jobe, and Vice President and Mortgage Lender Jane Lloyd received the award at the 2013 Annual Conference Award Banquet held in Salisbury on Jan. 31. “Home Savings Bank is a very

supportive corporate citizen, especially concerning Eden’s traditional downtown areas,” Economic Development Director and Eden’s Main Street Manager Mike Dougherty said. “We are pleased that they are being honored for their generosity and commitment to Eden.” Home Savings Bank will be honored by the Eden City Council at a future meeting.

Sign Language enhances learning environment

303 W. Meadow Road, Eden

by Kimberly Mitchell In order for all students in the school district to achieve their educational goals they all need to be provided with a means of communication that can help them be successful. American Sign Language has been used by students with hearing impairments for over 100 years. However, with several years of research ASL in a regular education classroom could possibly provide ALL students a better education by enhancing the learning environment with strengthened vocabulary development. It is possible that using American Sign Language with all learners may also help them to more successfully identify basic

sight words and improve their reading skills. A growing Mitchell population of children with special needs going into a regular classroom setting, some teachers are becoming concerned about learning in the classroom. Many of the students with special needs, who are dependent upon ASL as their main form of communication, are unable to communicate with other students or teachers because of their peers and educators are not familiar with using Sign language. The teachers have also observed that many of these students are falling further behind because of

the lack of being able to successfully communication with others. If this trend continues, these students may continue to struggle and the lack of communication may continue to slow their vocabulary development and success in school. We at Hear our voices with our hands mission is to give everyone a voice. We provide Sign Language classes that run from 6 to 8 weeks at reasonable rates for all incomes. Please contact Kimberly for more information at 336-627-3283 or 336-2801979 (cell phone). You may also go on Facebook to Hear our voices with our hands newsbeat for all upcoming events.

schools and health care boosts academic success, and keeping a teacher on the job, reduces expenses. And, when students can be seen by a medical professional at their schools, parents can stay on their jobs, instead of leaving work to take a child to the doctor. Who supports us: It takes $675,000 to operate the centers each school year. We have a broad base of community support. Here’s a breakdown of where that money comes from: • Annie Penn Hospital • Morehead Memorial Hospital • North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services • North Carolina Office of Rural Health • Reidsville Area Foundation • Rockingham County Schools • United Way of Rockingham County • Billing Revenue • Community Clubs & Organizations In-kind support is also provided by Annie Penn Hospital, Morehead Memorial Hospital, Rockingham County Department of Public Health and the Rockingham County School. Our medical directors, Dr. Nigel Buist, Dr. Bill McLeod, Dr. Dionne Galloway, and Dr. Vivian Salvador volunteer their time to read medical records and oversee the health centers. Who we are: Started in 1994, we are a nonprofit medical provider, operating inside Rockingham County’s four public high schools. We serve the students enrolled without regard for their ability to pay for services. We are among 52 school-based or school-linked health centers in the state, and we are noted as the largest group of rural centers. We are governed by a community advisory board and staffed by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers. We are credentialed by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and accredited by The Joint Commission. Who we impact: A female student with anger issues worked with a counselor, learning to manage her hostility and find healthily outlets for her emotions. A student from Mexico was helped by our social worker to get free lunch and free eyeglasses. Our nurse suspected a more serious problem when a student came in with an earache. Symptoms indicated diabetes, and the student was immediately admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of a nearby hospital. An uninsured student came to the center with a toothache. Our nurse practitioner knew it was not a routine problem and referred him to the dentist, where it was discovered that he actually had a tumor in his mouth that required surgery. A boy who has had weight issues most of his life worked with the health educator, learning about nutrition and exercise. He has lost more than 50 pounds.

Students also receive immunizations as well as treatments for other medical conditions. Referral for additional needed care is made to local physicians. Here’s a breakdown of some of the visits, by the numbers: • 1,147 visits for stress, anxiety and depression

912Bethlehem As of February 1, 2013 - Restaurant 912 Bethlehem will reopen. Bev and I have enjoyed having the restaurant for the last 2 1/2 years. We have enjoyed the food and fellowship with our customers. On February 1 we are leasing the facility to Skipper and Diane. When we first discussed opening 912 Bethlehem it was our intention to eventually turn the operation over to them. They feel that now the time they would like to do so. We have cautioned that since the first restaurant is on our property certain standards must be maintained. We will be there regular customers, so cleanliness, food quality, good service are still our goals. Many have let us know we are a needed asset for Rockingham County. Thank you for your support.
