Morehead High Army JROTC “Corps of Cadets” return from captial Forty-one "Panther Pride" Morehead High School Army JROTC cadets, 4 parent chaperons and 2 instructors closed on our Nation's Capital, Washington, DC during Spring Break and took it by storm. The Corps of Cadets recently returned from the school’s second “Love For Our Country” Citizenship Visit to Washington, D.C., where they spent three days touring a long list of landmarks in our nation’s capital. The visit itself was designed to prepare them for the rights, responsibilities, and privileges of being American citizens. Morehead Senior Army JROTC Instructor First Sergeant (R) David Bray said the JROTC program introduces the values and principles that underlie good citizenship, such as the importance of

the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights; responsibilities of U.S. citizens; basic national values; the U.S. federal justice system and service to the community. The visit included a night tour of Washington, D.C., as well as tours of the U.S. Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The cadets also visited the Holocaust Museum, the White House, the Lincoln, Jefferson, Martin Luther King, World War II, Korean War and Vietnam Veterans memorials, the Washington Monument, as well as the Smithsonian Museum, American History Museum and the Air and Space Museum. On the final day, the group JROTC... continued to Page

The trip would not be possible without the support of so many people at Morehead and in the community who sponsored portions of the visit or gave our program the opportunity to raise funds at community events. Morehead Army JROTC Instructor First Sergeant (Ret) Chet Chrapliwy sums up the trip: “I can’t tell you how wonderful it was for our kids. They were a great reflection of our school and community and I am proud to have shared this experience with them.”

Approximately 1,338,750 pounds of French fries. “We work very hard to continue the traditions set by Dick Brown and James Wood (David and Terry’s father) as we carry out our day-to-day operations at the restaurant,” David Wood said. “Our goal is to maintain the family atmosphere on which we were founded. We’d like to thank our customers for being such a valuable part of our lives since 1963. Our customers’ satisfaction is our daily motivation. Thank you, citizens of Eden and Rockingham County. We look forward to many more years serving you.” Dick’s Drive-In is open 5:30 a.m. – 10 p.m. six days a week and closed Sunday. Takeout orders are welcome.

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life

“Pops on the Square” series features Sharpe in May Market Square will be the place to be this spring, summer & fall. This May be sure to come out and enjoy the music. New this season will be a free “Pops on the Square” Series sponsored, in part, by a grant from the Reidsville Area Foundation. According to Market Square Manager Judy Yarbrough, “We are so grateful to the Reidsville Area Foundation in assisting with this series. This is a wonderful opportunity to bring musicians to our City that you find performing in larger metropolitan areas.” The series begins Friday, May 3, at 7:00 p.m. with Percussion Drummer, Tom Sharpe. Tom is the drummer for the Grammy Award-winning group Mannheim Steamroller, the number one selling Christmas tour of all time. He is also the drummer for Dennis DeYoung, the legendary singer/songwriter from the famed rock group STYX. Along with his heavy tour schedule, Tom is an internationally recognized, critically acclaimed composer and the creator of his own world music ensemble, Sharpe World Music. His own compositions have won many awards, including the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the Broadjam World Music Contest. He is alumni of the Interlochen Arts Academy and holds a Bachelor of Music degree and a Master of Music degree from DePaul University. Tom's music is a percussive symphony - a sonic and visual feast for the senses - wildly emotional and technically precise, with a gutsy edge of percussive frenzy and tribal ritual.

Larry Johnson Receives Director of the Year Award Larry Johnson, from Rockingham County, was named as Director of the Year, last week, at the North Carolina Association of County Directors of Social Services’ (NCACDSS) Annual Banquet, held in New Bern, NC. Nominees for Director of the Year must have served as a C o u n t y Director of S o c i a l Services for five years prior. The Johnson award recognizes contributions to the local community and the field of social services. Sharon Scott, DSS Director of Stanly County, shown in photo, presented Mr. Johnson with the award. During her remarks, Ms. Scott stated, “Larry has been a mentor to, not only me, but so many of his fellow directors and has provided encouragement, strength and sage advice where needed. NCACDSS, Rockingham County and the field of Social Work are stronger and more effective because of Larry Johnson. Larry’s dedication and hard work, his reliability, his wisdom and his skills are recognized by all. Larry goes about his work in a quiet, unassuming manner that gathers respect and cooperation from those around him.” Some of Mr. Johnson’s affiliations and involvements include: serving as a member of the Guardianship Legislative Task Force; as a member of the Leading By Results Task Force from inception to end; and as a member of the committee that selected the new contract provider for EBT. He has been a long-term member of the North Carolina Social Services Association and of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). Mr. Johnson is also a member of the Rotary Club in Rockingham County, and has held all of the required officer positions up to and including President; a member of Annie Penn Community Trust Board at Annie Penn Hospital; and a member of the board of Rockingham County Partnership for Children.

8 Health Tips For Speedy Recovery From Childbirth!

It's not unusual to feel really tired and a bit anxious or blue in the weeks after giving birth. With the sleepless nights, extra responsibilities, and physical changes—who wouldn't be on a bit of a roller coaster? Remember: This won't last forever. Plus, you can ease your recovery by taking steps like these: 1. Sleep when baby sleeps. Sneak a quick nap when you can. Shut the blinds and silence your phone, television, and all other electronic devices. 2. Nix household chores. Right now, your main job is to take good care of yourself and your baby. No one really cares about those lurking dust bunnies. If it really bothers you and your budget allows, then hire some temporary help. Also, remember to share parenting tasks such as diaper changes and feedings when possible. 3. Limit visitors. But ask any guests to help out. If not now, when? Swallow your pride and ask for a hand with the dishes, laundry, or shopping. Or take advantage of a visitor to watch your baby while you nap. 4. Eat healthy. Healthy food choices can give you more energy. But planning and cooking meals may be a challenge right now. Ask friends and family to help with this. Don't forget to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. But avoid caffeine and sugary drinks. 5. Be active—within limits. Exercise can also increase your energy and reduce constipation. Get clearance from your doctor before you: Take the stairs or lift objects. Drive, although this is usually okay when you can wear a seat belt comfortably and are able to make sudden movements. Hit the gym or become really active. Have sex. Your doctor may ask you to wait several weeks after birth. 6. Get emotional support. You might be surprised by feeling irritable, sad, or anxious right now. But many new moms experience a wide range of feelings in the days following delivery. Part of this is related to changing hormones or fatigue and part of it is simply a response to a major life transition. These baby blues will subside soon. If you have extreme feelings that really last, seek professional help, especially if you have a history of depression. You may be experiencing postpartum depression. Up to one in seven new moms go through this— but no one should go through it alone. Some women need therapy or medication. 7. Set aside time to relax. Chances are no one will put this on the calendar for you, so you'll need to do it for yourself. Listen to some relaxing music, read a book, or meditate. Even just a few minutes can make a difference. And try to carve out a few minutes each day to touch base with your partner or husband. 8. Seek out other new moms. There's nothing like sharing tips and support with people who are going through similar life changes. Maybe you can even start up an informal support group in your neighborhood or among your friends. Your doctor and I are good resources for answering your questions. Some say it takes a village to raise a child—just think of us as your well-informed neighbors. Nothing herein constitutes medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, or is a substitute for professional advice. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other medical professional if you have questions or concerns about a medical condition.

Low-Cox spay/neuter reimursed by Animal Welfare Section The Animal Welfare Section reimbursed counties more than half a million dollars for spay/neuter procedures for pets belonging to low-income residents in 2012. Overall, 28 counties requested nearly $562,500 in reimbursements for 9,529 surgeries performed. The Animal Welfare Section was able to reimburse $550,235. The reimbursements are partially funded by fees collected from the Animal Lovers specialty license plate. Fixing cats and dogs is the best solution to the pet overpopulation problem in North Carolina. If you want to help with the problem, consider an Animal Lovers license plate. According to the N.C. Veterinary Medical Association, spaying or neutering decreases the risk of cancer in dogs and cats, decreases aggressive behaviors and eliminates most urine marking behaviors, among a host of other benefits. The Spay/Neuter reimbursement report and other information are available online at

Students try to solve “Tragedy at the Bottom of the Stairs” Rockingham County Government's Citizens’ Academy students vicariously walked in the shoes of County officials to solve the “Tragedy at the Bottom of the Stairs” in April. Students participated in a simulation exercise and try to decide what steps would be taken by the Asst. County Manager/ Human Resources Director (HR) Ben Neal, Safety/Risk Manager Michael Beckman, County Attorney Robert Shaver, Information Services Director (IT) (CIO) David Whicker, and Public Information Officer (PIO) Mable Scott. The simulation unfolded with a video entitled, “Tragedy at the Bottom of the Stairs.” The program, led this time by graduates of the first Citizens’ Academy, is a ten-week program helping local citizens learn and better understand how our County Government operates. The Citizens’ Academy’s 2013 Spring Steering Committee is being led by Chairman Sharon Penley and Vice-Chairman Leanna Lawson. March 28th presenters were Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page, 9-1-1 Communications Director Susan Hall, Fire Marshal Robert Cardwell, and Emergency Medical Services Operations Supervisor Rodney Stewart. Speakers at the March 21st session included Register of Deeds Rebecca Cipriani; Planning/Inspections Director Tonya Caddle; GIS Director Gary Melvin; along with Tax Department’s Mark C. McClintock (Real Property Supervisor/Appraisal/Land Records). The March 14th presenters were Museum & Archives of Rockingham County (MARC) Executive Director Kim Proctor and Rockingham Community College President Michael Helmick. The session was held at the MARC, former County Courthouse, in Wentworth and also included a tour of the museum. The March 7th introductory session welcomed and provided participants an overview of the Citizens’ Academy and Rockingham County Government by the 2013 Spring Steering Committee and governmental officials including the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners, County Manager Lance Metzler, Board Clerk Pam McLain, and Public Information Officer Mable Scott.

Schools request your input in District Communications Survey Rockingham County Schools Requests Input for District Communications Survey Rockingham County, NC Rockingham County Schools (RCS) understands the importance of communication to work together, with our entire community, to continually improve our schools. To best communicate with our customers, RCS created a communication survey to help determine the most efficient communication methods. This communitywide survey is directed at both student households and non-student households. The deadline to complete the survey is May 12, 2013. The survey may be completed online, at - click “Survey” under Announcements, or on paper. We prefer you take the survey online; however, paper copies are available at all local schools, at the RCS Central Administration Building (511 Harrington Highway, Eden, NC) or by contacting Karen Hyler, RCS Public Information Officer, at or 336.627.2602. Rockingham County Schools utilizes the district website as the main source of information. We communicate to parents/guardians of current RCS students via our district website (, Social Media sites (Facebook & Twitter), RCS Connect: E-News Newsletter, Alert Now phone notifications, and information sent home via students. Communicating with those who aren't parents of current RCS students - the majority of our community - is more difficult since we don't have that group's email addresses and phone numbers at our disposal. While we strive to keep our entire community informed, we are also conscientious of conserving taxpayer dollars and the environment. Please provide your valuable input by completing one survey per household. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. After the survey closes, the results will be posted on the RCS district website and paper copies will be made available upon request. Thank you in advance for you time, participation and input!

Tara Speaks About Project Safe

Rockingham County Youth Services is a department of county government which provides counseling and other community alternatives for school-aged youth and their families. The program was initiated as Rockingham County Youth Involvement Program by the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners in 1979 for the purpose of meeting the needs of troubled youth in our county. Youth Services currently has twelve programs that provide prevention and intervention services for school aged youth who are involved in or are at risk of involvement with the juvenile justice system; these include Family and Individual Counseling, Teen Court, Community Service and Restitution, Parenting classes, Substance Abuse

For the fun of it Common:

Abraham Lincoln remarked that common folks are the best in the country. “That is the reason the Lord made so many of them.”

Hospice of Rockingham County meets with Coble On March 28th, 2013, Hospice of Rockingham County hosted U.S. Rep. Howard Coble (R-NC) and his staff during his recent visit to Rockingham County. Clinical and administrative staff as well as trustees were on hand to welcome the congressman. A special guest from the hospice community was David Stone, President and CEO of The Carolinas Center for Hospice and End of Life Care. Mr. Stone said, “As the state’s oldest and only association dedicated to hospice and palliative care, we are delighted to participate in today’s activities at Hospice of Rockingham County.” The Hospice staff had the opportunity to talk with Congressman Coble as well as his chief of staff, Ed McDonald and Lindsay Morris, district representative and they discussed several topics including the Medicare cuts to the Hospice Medicare Benefit that become effective April 1st and what these cuts could mean to hospices in general and HRC specifically. The staff also highlighted the findings of a recently-published study (conducted by the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center) demonstrating the cost savings end-of-life care (i.e. hospice care) brings to the Medicare program. “There are many issues


confronting the care of our family and neighbors in North Carolina and we believe that hospice and palliative care services play a significant role in our state’s efforts to address these issues. It was very nice to have the opportunity to speak with Rep. Coble and gain his support around the concerns facing hospice and palliative care delivery in our state,” said Mr. Stone. The Mount Sinai study examined the potential savings to Medicare for various lengths of service prior to a hospice patient’s death. Because hospice care focuses on patient care, comfort, and quality of life and not on aggressive treatments and therapies, the savings to Medicare can be significant. According to the study, those who had hospice just 15-30 days prior to their death represented a savings of $6430 per patient; 814 days: $5040 per patient; and 1-7 days: $2650 per patient. Hospice of Rockingham County served 466 patients during their last fiscal year, of which almost 54% had a length of stay of 30 days or less. Lynn Flanagan, HRC’s executive director said, “Based on the Mount Sinai study figures, Hospice of Rockingham County alone saved Medicare an average of over $1.17 million over this last fiscal year.” A full copy of the study may be found at

Scouts and leaders work to get the food items together at the Salvation Army Major Leona O’Bryant, 6,393 meals were served, 1,377 families were provided with food boxes, and 516 food bags were distributed during this quarter alone. The United Way of Rockingham County also allocates funding for the Salvation Army Emergency Assistance program in which clients are able to take care of their families and themselves with dignity and increase their chances of attaining work. This program focuses on providing the homeless and low income individuals with essentials other than food. Assistance with utilities prevents disconnection of essential services such as electricity, heat and water. Heating assistance is provided with oil or wood as well as assistance in preventing evictions. The Salvation Army networks with other agencies to help supplement existing monies for rent to avoid the displacement of families. Additional Salvation Army services include: shower access, soap, shampoo for the homeless; assistance in securing jobs; and referral services for the disabled. The Salvation Army works closely with the Coalition of Homeless of Rockingham County. Since Christmas, 83 individual showers and care kit items have been utilized. Vouchers are used for qualified participants to purchase clothing at the Salvation Army Family Stores. United Way dollars helped provide 357 clothing items this quarter, assisting 37 families including 147 coats for children and 30 adult coats. Utility, heating fuel and other services assisted 38 families and 82 individuals in the last three months. This is a true "safety net" program that keeps people in their homes who might otherwise

have severe difficulties. The Salvation Army distributed a total of 8,646 toys, assisted 3,222 people including Angel Tree families, prison inmates and nursing home residents and a total of 1,781 community care gifts were given to nursing homes and prisons. The third Salvation Army program receiving United Way funds is the Youth Services. The Youth Programs increase selfesteem among children resulting in higher grades in school, better attendance, and increased involvement in school activities. These youth programs provide opportunities for team sports, arts and crafts, and progressive emblems. As the United Way of Rockingham County Campaign begins to wind down, please know that your dollars impact numerous lives in this community. People in our community are hungry and they need your help. A waiting list exists to receive one hot meal a day from the Meals on Wheels. For many of the elderly, this is the only human contact they see each and every day. Just recently, the American Red Cross had run out of all frozen and refrigerated foods and distributed a week’s worth of groceries to 100 families in one day. What once was an everyday food program has now become a 1-2 day a week service. For the family who has a loved one needing end of life care, time is of the essence. For the father who has lost his job and needs to put food on the table, time is of the essence. For the mother trying to escape danger for herself and her children, time is of the essence. For the individual in need of rescue services, time is of the essence. For families with two working parents and in need of after school care, time is of the essence. For students in need of healthcare and cannot afford to miss days in school, time is of the essence. The success of this year’s campaign depends on each and every one of us. This year’s goal is $1,000,000. The Rockingham County United Way is 76% to goal. Time is of the Essence. Make a difference in a life! The Rockingham County community needs your support.

Seven Miles of History & Naturewith DRBA

HOMETOWN SCRUBS, LLC “Quality for Less”

By T Butler

The Dan River Basin Association's May 4 float from Draper Landing Access in Eden, NC to the Virginia line will use colorfully named sluices built to allow nineteenth-century batteau traffic to pass through the rapids. The outing is free and open to the public.

May 4 Float from Draper Landing Access to Berry Hill Bridge Join the Dan River Basin Association's May 4 First Saturday Outing, launching at Eden's Draper Landing Access. Will Truslow, avid kayaker and a past president of DRBA, will coordinate the seven-mile float from the public river access point to just below the Berry Hill Bridge at the North CarolinaVirginia line. Participants are asked to meet at 10:00 a.m. at the access's graveled parking lot beside the NC 700 Bridge to set the shuttle (GPS 36.4987, -79.6814). Three Rivers Outfitters of Eden, 336627-6215 or, will offer boat rentals and shuttle for the float, which will end on private property with the owner's permission. In this river trip of Class I water, participants will navigate at least seven ledges and shoals with long-standing historic names found on old maps. Six of these have been made easier to navigate by structures such as sluice walls built in the nineteenth century by the Roanoke Navigation Company and the US Army Corps of Engineers. The sluices concentrate the river's water over shallow ledges, creating a channel deep enough to float long, narrow batteaux, the commercial "semi-trailers" of early river travel. Today's boaters benefit from the still-working navigation system that makes the river floatable even in extreme drought. Nearly a century before the river was improved for naviga-

tion, in 1728 a survey team led by Virginia's William Byrd determined the "dividing line" between North Carolina and Virginia. Byrd named the Dan River for the river in northern Israel and gave names that still survive to many of the river's tributaries. One was Cascade Creek, which enters from river left about halfway through the trip, so called "by reason of the multitude of waterfalls that are in it" some distance before it reaches the Dan. Devil's Jump Shoal, just downstream from Cascade Creek, is named for impressive mid-river rocks. On river right less than a mile downstream from Devil's Jump is the confluence of the Dan with Tanyard Creek, named for the tannery owned by John Morehead, father of North Carolina Governor John Motley Morehead, who grew up nearby. Other examples of intriguing nineteenth-century labels are Beasley's Gallows Shoal Sluice and the well-preserved Hairston's Fish Trap Sluice, likely modified from an Amerindian fish weir of 1000 years ago.

The trip is part of the series of over 100 First Saturday Outings that have been offered by DRBA for over a decade. On earlier floats along this section of the Dan, clusters of large Great Blue Heron nests have been spotted high in the trees. Herons often escort DRBA's flotilla along the river, unless they are busy with their family duties. Other interesting facts about the geology, history, and culture of this section of the river are found in Maps 42 - 45 of "An Insider's Guide to the Dan River in North Carolina and Virginia," which is available at . Participants in the outing are asked to provide boat, life jackets, lunch and water, to dress in layers of artificial (quick-drying) fabric and to sign a waiver. To reach Draper Landing Access from the north or west, take NC 14 to NC 700 East. Travel on NC 700 about 4 miles through Eden to the bridge over the Dan River. After crossing the bridge, go 0.1 mile and turn left into the gravel driveway to the access. From the south take US 29 North, turning left (west) on NC 700. Just past Quesinberry Road, turn right into the gravel driveway to the access beside the NC 700 Bridge over the Dan. From the east take US 29 South, turning right (west) on NC 700, and proceed as described above. Outings and meetings of the Dan River Basin Association are open to the public without charge.

County Commissioner in Action with Fire Dept

Zane Cardwell on the fire scene Zane Cardwell serves as a member of the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners. But he also serves his community as a long-time member of the Northwest Rockingham Fire Dept. where he recently responded and assisted with fire ground operations. Rockingham County Fire Marshal Robert Cardwell captured a photo of the County Commissioner in action with the fire departCardwell ment in Mayodan. Fire Marshal Cardwell said, "I just happened to be in the attic of this house that had caught on fire when Zane climbed up the ladder to deliver a fire hose to us. The structure fire call happened Wednesday afternoon, March 27, on Ledbetter Rd." According to the Fire Marshal, "the occupant was home at the time vacuuming the floor when a neighbor banged on the door to get her out of the house. She was not aware her house was on fire. Northwest Rockingham, Mayodan, and Stoneville Fire Departments responded and arrived on scene to find heavy black smoke coming from the attic area of the house. The house sustained major attic and roof damage. No injuries were reported."

Rabies Vaccination Clinic Scheduled Veterinarians are cooperating again this year with local animal control officers and the Rockingham County Department of Public Health to offer rabies clinics for dogs and cats. Rabies continues to be a public health threat in Rockingham County, and vaccinating pets will help to remedy the problem and keep the rabies virus from threatening pets and people. There have been three posi-

tive rabies cases so far this year. An unvaccinated pet dog in the Reidsville area came into contact with a rabid raccoon and had to be euthanized. We also have recorded two positive skunks so far this year. During 2012 in Rockingham County, eleven wild animals (five skunks, five raccoons, one fox), tested positive for rabies, a deadly viral disease transmitted by rabid animals. In addition to the

containers greater than 5 gal in size, please contact the Extension Office BEFORE the Collection Day for special instructions and information. For tips on transporting the pesticides safely to the Collection event, contact the Extension Office. Each year the Pesticide Disposal Assistance Program ( visits between 40-50 counties to collect unwanted and unused pesticides through this NON-Regulatory

amnesty Program. This means that a Collection Day of this kind only happens about once every other year in each county! Don’t miss this pesticide collection opportunity in Rockingham County co-sponsored by NCDA&CS and the NCCES.

Duke Energy - Investing in our community

By Michael Dougherty, Eden Director of Economic Development

themselves and their resources is truly remarkable. Eden Mayor John Grogan expressed his sincere appreciation for this generosity at an April 10, 2013, cele-

In 1947, almost 200 acres of land was purchased for the new Dan River Steam Station site on Edgewood Road in what was formerly called Draper, NC, now Eden. On March 29, 1948, construction began on the new powerhouse and little more than a year later personnel received assignments to start-up and operate the plant. Dan River Steam Station #1 was placed into commercial operation as of midnight, Sunday, December 11, 1949 and two weeks later construction began on #2 turbogenerator. It was completed on February 26, 1950. With these two milestones completed, the building and grounds were finished on June 1, 1950, making the total plant cost $15 million. Fast forward more than 60 years and Duke Energy has invested again in Eden, but it is more than $700 million in this new gas-powered Eden facility. Such an investment--especially when compared to the cost of its original Eden operation--is remarkable. It is one of the largest, if not the largest single corporate investment ever made in Eden. Duke Energy has always been a good corporate citizen. It provides power to Eden’s citizens, jobs to those who work at the Dan River and Belews Creek Steam Stations and supports area events and economic development. One of the best decisions Duke Energy ever made was choosing CB&I, formerly The Shaw Group, to complete the gas-powered project. Many people may not be aware of the tremendous impact the CB&I employees had on our community. Below are some examples: · More than 1,000 employees descended upon Eden to work on this facility. They infused our community with their hard-work, generosity and consumer spending. · Motel occupancy taxes, paid by the workers who rented motel rooms, increased by almost 12% in 2010 and 13% in 2011 in Eden. Our motel tax revenue exceeded $73,000 in 2011, the highest amount ever collected. · Realtors enjoyed an influx of rental property leases for the

duration of the workers’ time in Eden. · What is most significant is how the employees gave of themselves to help those in need in Eden. CB&I Construction Superintendent Padraig McDonagh and NC State Trooper Darren Wright established “A Little Sacrifice,” a fund to contribute resources to this community. This is what they did for Eden: o They raised money for Salvation Army Christmas Angel program resulting in 225 bikes and other gifts. o After their days working outside in the elements, CB&I employees found time to help make and fill gift and food boxes for families in need. o They donated $800 to make a downtown clock possible. o An $8,000 donation was made to the Morehead High School sports facility. o $10,000 was given for a highway patrol scholarship fund. o They purchased ball field fencing for the Eden YMCA. o Padraig would give Wal-Mart gift cards to those people he learned were having financial difficulties. o For the Eden Police Department, CB&I employees purchased a new police dog and combat gear. o Two $89 bicycles were raffled off for a total of $3,500 because each raffle winner refused to accept the bikes so they could be raffled again and again and again. o One CB&I employee shoveled the driveway of an Edgewood Road resident after a snow. The list of what CB&I employees did for this community goes on and on. They never refused a request to help. One of the most gratifying remarks we heard from Mr. Mc Donagh was that the people of Eden he encountered were not just acquaintances—they became friends. And he said he had never worked with such generous workers on any of the many projects he has facilitated over his career. The Duke Energy and CB&I employee generosity was significant. But for the CB&I leaders and employees---who have no ties to Eden---to give so much of

bration of the new facility. All of those who were involved with CB&I staff will be sorry to see them go, but Duke Energy remains one of our finest

For The Fun Of It The $5.37 Order At Taco Bell

$5.37! That's what the kid behind the counter at Taco Bell said to me. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and something that used to be a Jolly Rancher.Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Elmo hairdo said the hardest thing anyone has ever said to me. He said, "It's OK. I'll just give you the senior citizen discount." I turned to see who he was talking to and then heard the sound of change hitting the counter in front of me."Only$4.68"he said cheerfully. I stood there stupefied. I am 56, not even 60 yet? A mere child! Senior citizen? I took my burrito and walked out to the truck wondering what was wrong with Elmo. Was he blind? As I sat in the truck, my blood began to boil. Old? Me? I'll show him, I thought. I opened the door and headed back inside. I strode to the counter, and there he was waiting with a smile. Before I could say a word, he held up something and jingled it in front of me, like I could be that easily distracted! What am I now? A toddler? "Dude! Can't get too far without your car keys, eh?" I stared with utter disdain at the keys. I began to rationalize in my mind! "Leaving keys behind hardly makes a man elderly! It could happen to anyone!" I turned and headed back to the truck. I slipped the key into the ignition, but it wouldn't turn. What now? I checked my keys and tried another. Still nothing. That's when I noticed the purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror. I had no purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror. Then, a few other objects came into focus: The car seat in the back seat. Happy Meal toys spread all over the floorboard. A partially eaten dough nut on the dashboard. Faster than you can say ginkgo biloba, I flew out of thealien vehicle. Moments later I was speeding out of the parking lot, relieved to finally be leaving this nightmarish stop in my life. That is when I felt it, deep in the bowels of my stomach: hunger! My stomach growled and churned, and I reached to grab my burrito, only it was nowhere to be found. I swung the truck around, gathered my courage, and strode back into the restaurant one final time. There Elmo stood, draped in youth and black nail polish. All I could think was,"What is the world coming to?" All I could say was, "Did I leave my food and drink in here"? At this point I was ready to ask a Boy Scout to help me back to my vehicle, and then go straight home and apply for Social Security benefits. Elmo had no clue. I walked back out to the truck, and suddenly a young lad came up and tugged on my jeans to get my attention. He was holding up a drink and a bag. His mother explained, "I think you left this in my truck by mistake" I took the food and drink from the little boy and sheepishly apologized. She offered these kind words: "It's OK. My grandfather does stuff like this all the time." All of this is to explain how I got a ticket doing 85 in a 40 mph zone. Yessss, I was racing some punk kid in a Toyota Prius. And no, I told the officer, I'm not too old to be driving this fast. As I walked in the front door, my wife met me halfway down the hall. I handed her a bag of cold food and a $300speeding ticket. I promptly sat in my rocking chair and covered up my legs with a blankey.Hair “This,” said the pharmacist, “is guaranteed to make hair start growing back within a week.” He handed a jar of cream over to a balding customer for examination. “Works in less than a week, you say?” the man asked. “As advertised,” the pharmacist assured him. The customer opened the jar, touched a bit of the cream to his finger, reached across the counter and rubbed it on the pharmacist’s own bald spot. “I’ll be back in a week,” he said, “to see if you’re telling the truth.” The good news was that I had successfully found my way home.

Clapping The young, bearded man sat in the psychiatrist’s office clapping his hands in a steady cadence: clap…clap-clap…clap…clap-clap…. When it came the young man’s turn, the psychiatrist immediately asked him the meaning of the hand-clap routine. “It’s a secret ritual,” the patient answered. “I learned it from a street musician.” “What’s the purpose?” “It keeps killer sharks away.” “Oh, you won’t be bothered by a shark in here,” assured the psychiatrist. “Thanks to me,” added the patient.

Summer Job

Michelle: “Mom! Mom! We just found a snake in the backyard!” Mom: “Oh, no! Has it bitten anyone?” Michelle: “Nah. Actually, it’s just a baby. It’s kinda cute!” Mom: “well, you know some snakes never grow very long. How can you be sure it’s a baby?” Michelle: “’Cause it carries its own rattle at the tip of its tail.”

“Dad, I think the Browns next door are angry at us.” “Why is that?” “They’re probably mad because our dog can retrieve the newspaper, and theirs can’t.” “How could you possibly know that? We don’t even subscribe to the paper.” “Yeah, that’s probably got something to do with it, too.” A baby hippopotamus was playing hide and seek in the jungle with an ant. The ant, logically, had an easier time concealing himself. Finally, in frustration, the young hippo deliberately stepped on the poor ant. “Bruce?” shouted the hippo’s mother, seeing what had happened. “Why did you kill that ant?” “I only meant to trip him,” Bruce said sheepishly.

The college student was quite nervous on the first afternoon of his summer job as a resort hotel porter. A veteran at the bell desk gave him some friendly advice: “You’ll get good tips if you chat with the guests and call them by name.” “Er, how do I find out their names? Do I sneak over to the reception desl before I take them to their room, or just come right out and ask them?” “No, no. Neither. All you have to do is notice the name and address labels on their suitcases.” With this advice, the student porter escorted a well-dressed, elderly couple to their suite on the fourth floor. Reaching down to clutch a couple of bags, he slyly read the tag dangling off one of the handles. “So,” he ventured, “it’s nice having you here, Mr. and Mrs. Leather. What brings you to the islands?”

Grill “I see the Andersons have returned our grill,” said the wife happily, glancing out the window. “They’ve had it for the last six months, and I was afraid now that they’re moving, they’d take it with them by mistake.” “You mean that was our grill?” screamed her husband, entering the back door. “I just paid them $25 for it at their yard sale!”

Clock A man was lugging a grandfather clock from an antique shop to his car, three blocks away. Swaggering with each step, unable to see directly in front of him, he accidentally bumped an elderly couple heading in his direction on the sidewalk. “I’m so sorry,” he apologized, turning awkwardly toward them. The couple glared at him angrily. The lady retorted, “Why don’t you carry a wristwatch, like everyone else?”

20 Percent A man was driving home from an out-of-town trip and called his wife on the cellular phone. “I’ll be home in about three hours,” he observed. “I see the weather report calls for a 20 percent chance of snow flurries there tonight.” “Well, you’ll need to drive more carefully than you think,” his wife said. “The children have been building 20 percent snowmen and having 20 percent snowball fights since lunchtime.”

Passed Away “I hear Sam Culpepper passed away last week.” “Yeah, he was right well off, too. I’d like to know how much property he left.” “’Bout all of it, I expect.”

Weather After months of discouraging failures in his daily weather forecasts, a TV climatologist submitted his resignation. “But you have such a friendly screen presence,” the station manager protested. “Our audiences love you, even when you get the forecasts wrong.” “Thanks, but I really think I need to be in a different locale altogether.” “Why?” “Well, it’s obvious that the weather here just doesn’t agree with me.”

“Keystone Cops” raise funds for the Arts in county schools Bad economic times almost always resulted in cuts to the programs offered in our schools and communities. Everyone struggles to meet their budgets. To put it simply, the funds just aren't available. No matter where this occurs it hurts everyone it touches. One of the first places affected if the school systems of various arts programs; Music, art and drama classes are cut, giving priority to core curriculum classes. Remember art classes when you were in school? Were you in the marching band or performed in a play? Besides wonderful memories, these programs provide our children with invaluable learning opportunities. High school students who participate in the arts score and average of 58 points higher on their verbal SAT score and 38 points higher on their math SAT score than those students who take no art classes. Students in the arts develop problem-solving skills and an

New Distribution Company Locates in Eden The Rockingham County Partnership for Economic and Tourism Development is pleased to announce that A1 Wholesale Tires will open a distribution and wholesale operation in Eden. The company plans to create approximately 12 new jobs and will be located in a former Spray Cotton Mills warehouse at 413 Church Street. “We are happy to announce more new jobs in Rockingham County,” said Graham Pervier, president of the Rockingham County Partnership. “We are especially pleased to see a new company making good use of an existing building and we look forward to A1’s success there.” The Eden facility will initially occupy 15,000 square feet in the Spray Cotton warehouse. It will serve retail tire dealers and tire centers all over North Carolina and Virginia with particular emphasis on Central NC and Southern VA. A1 Wholesale Tires distributes both new and used tires. The company also operates a distribution center in Wendell, NC that serves the Raleigh/Durham metro area. “We are very pleased to have been able to establish our business right in Eden and to have found excellent warehouse space in the Spray Cotton Mills building. We are excited about the possibilities of providing jobs

and giving back in our home community,” said Jim Koffarnus, a partner in A1 Wholesale Tires. “As our business grows, we hope to be able to create more jobs in the future.” “The new Eden facility gives us the ability to warehouse thousands of popular sizes of new and used tires in a single, conveniently and centrally located distribution center. That in turn will provide regional tire dealers easy, convenient, and cost effective access to product,” Koffarnus added. A1 Wholesale Tires wishes to thank the Rockingham County Partnership for Economic and Tourism Development, The City of Eden, and Mark Bishopric with Spray Cotton Mills for their assistance in locating this facility in Rockingham County.

hotel and private dwellings were deserted and converted to pig sties and stables. According to local lure, in 1826, Andrew Johnson, then a tailor who would later become the 17th President of the United States, boarded for six to eight weeks in Leaksville at a hotel owned by William Spaulding. Johnson reportedly plied his trade during those weeks in a small building on the southeast corner of Washington and Henry Streets. The building was razed in 1926. In 1843,

Governor Morehead offered his Leaksville tavern building for the establishment of the North Carolina School for the Deaf. The school was later established in Raleigh.

Sheriff Sam Page to Capitol Hill on Border Security In mid-April Rockingham County Sheriff Page and seventeen other Sheriffs from across America rallied on Capitol Hill Washington, D.C. to meet with U.S. Senators regarding illegal immigration concerns, crime issues, Mexican drug Cartels, and the importance of securing our Nation's borders. Just prior to the event scheduled at the Senate Dirksen Bldg. on Wednesday April 17th, an

evacuation alarm was sent out over the intercom system to alert everyone that a suspicious package had been detected and that all three lower floors would be closed and the Hart Senate Building was subsequently evacuated. The Senator who was scheduled to speak with the Sheriffs was prevented from attending during the period that the evacuation took place, and the attendees

continued with the program and held the round table discussion after reconvening. Some of the speakers at this event were Sheriff Todd Garrison Chair of the Western Border Sheriff's Coalition, Sheriff Paul

“I am a Border Sheriff also… from North Carolina

Babeau Pinal, County Az., Chris Crane, I.C.E., Richard Valdamar, Retired L.A. County, Ca. Gang investigator, and Rusty Flemming, Film Producer. Chris Crane with I.C.E. spoke on the pending law suit filed against D.H.S. Secretary Janet Napolitano as a result of them not being allowed to do their jobs as required by the law.

Mr. Crane represents as many as 5000 Federal agents. He told of the struggles of the I.C.E. Field Agents due to current directives set forth by Secretary Napolitano. Each speaker told of the impact that they had experienced with illegal immigrations, border security, and drug trafficking, the lack of support from Washington, D.C.; and the lack of security as seen from a local resident on the border. Following the round table

discussion, all of the Sheriffs participated in interviews with several national radio talk show hosts at the Phoenix Park Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C. Sheriff Page also participated, discussing a North Carolina Sheriff's perspective on the illegal immigration discussion, and the importance of border security even for non-border states. “I am a Border Sheriff also…” said Page “from North Carolina.”

National County Government Month was celebrated in April April was National County Government Month and this year’s theme was “Smart Justice: Creating Safer Communities.” Rockingham County had displays in the Governmental Center lobby during the month of April to showcase services, including: DSS, Youth Services, Sheriff’s Department, Pre-trial Services, Help, Inc., Project Safe, Code Enforcement, and others. I n addition the County’s website featured programs to highlight how they work with other agencies to help create safer communities in Rockingham County. This local National County Government Month was coordinated in by Paralegal Cindy Herring. The National Association of Counties President is encouraging counties to promote effective community corrections programs across the country with his 2012-2013 “Smart Justice” initiative. The goal is to build successful justice policies and practices among the nation’s counties and look at the need for intergovernmental collaboration and public private partnerships in an effort to create safer communities and spend taxpayer money more effectively. Issues include pre-trial services, post-release coordination, justice and mental health collaboration, supportive housing and employment.

Continued from Page 29 USA (Eden) are doing very well in this competitive, global industry. Their investments in their respective companies are paying off as our local Frontier Spinning, McMichael Mills and SANS plants have each added new jobs and equipment in the last couple of years. Global Textile Alliance is an innovative textile company that relocated its off-shore production facility in Reidsville as did Gerbing’s Heated Clothing, which announced it would move its overseas production to Stoneville in 2011. In addition, suppliers to this industry in Reidsville like DyStar, a textile dye manufacture, and Unifi’s dye plant, both continue to thrive in Rockingham County.

Salesman A door-to-door salesman approached a nice home where two children played in the front yard. “Are either of your parents home?” he called. “Yeah, they’re both home.” The salesman rang the bell and waited. He rang again. Still, no one answered the door. “Why won’t they come to the door?” he asked the children. “This isn’t our house,” said one.

Project SAFE works to improve quality of life for county residents

Project SAFE A Partnership between Community and Law Enforcement to reduce gun and gang related violent crime and to improve the quality of life for all residents of Rockingham County. For a complete list of Community Partners go to For more information or to become a supporter of Project SAFE Rockingham County please contact the Program Manager at ReDirections of Rockingham County at (336) 342-5238 ext. 12 Project SAFE’s goal is to improve the quality of life for all residents of Rockingham County by employing a comprehensive county-wide strategy to reduce gang related violent crime and illegal gun possession. The plan is to identify repeat, violent, and group offenders, particularly those who illegally possess and

use firearms. To notify those identified that it is time to stop the violence. To assist those who want to change their lifestyle. To respond aggressively to further acts of violence. To vigorously prosecute in State and Federal court those involved in group and gang related violent or serious criminal behavior. This IS NOT a promise to forgive offenders for serious criminal activity in the is not immunity! It IS a strategy to vigorously prosecute group and gang related offenders who continue to engage in violent activity or illegal gun possession. It IS an offer by the community to assist those who want to change their lifestyles by connecting them with available resources. Project SAFE Rockingham County, including the District Attorney’s Office, Division of Community Corrections, US

Attorney’s Office , and the six local law enforcement departments, will work to aggressively deal with anyone who illegally carries guns, commits violent acts, or associates with a group that engages in violence. If you are a felon under Federal Law, you cannot possess any type of firearm or even ammunition—anytime, anywhere, for any reason Project SAFE Rockingham County is coordinated through ReDirections of Rockingham County. This program is a partnership between community representatives and probation, prosecutors, law enforcement and the criminal justice system in Rockingham County. Assistance is available to help connect offenders with community resources in order to change their criminal lifestyles, these include: GED, Schools, Job Training, Employment, Parenting assistance, Alcohol/drug treatment, Counseling, Anger Management, Housing, Medical care, and Transportation.

If you need assistance to change your lifestyle, or know someone who does, please contact the Rockingham County Resource Coordinator at (336) 637-1010 at GoodwillIndustries of Reidsville.

hearts of a dedicated 125 member volunteer team. Volunteers, both professional and nonprofessional, serve in various capacities— reception, eligibility screening, medical (doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses), dental (dentists, hygienists, assistants), and office work. It is only because of their spirit of volunteerism that the Clinic can offer comprehensive health care services with only a nominal $10 administrative contribution requested* of patients. (*Patients are never denied access to services due to an inability to pay.) In 2010, 1047 medical and 265 dental visits were realized and over 3200 prescriptions were filled for qualified patients. Thus, with a budget of just over $200,000, the Clinic provides services in excess of $498,000, proving its tremendous return on investment. Providing quality, comprehensive health care is a remarkable accomplishment; to do so without federal or state aid is phenomenal. The Free Clinic of Rockingham County, Inc. prides itself on being an out-of-the-box

deliverer of quality health care by having its own community garden for patients to tend and reap the benefits of fresh, homegrown vegetables and an incentivized obesity treatment program for select participants. Proudly, it received the top level of free clinic accreditation in August 2011,

As concerned citizens, business owners, and members of the faith community of Rockingham County, Project SAFE Rockingham County affects you directly. There are many ways for you to assist the united forces against gun and gang related violence: Display a Project SAFE Rockingham County poster in the window of your place of business to show support.

Founded on the belief that health and well being create the foundation for all human endeavors, the Free Clinic of Reidsville & Vicinity, Inc. opened its doors on May 28, 1998 in an effort to provide free, basic medical, dental, and pharmacy resources to a particular subgroup—low income, working, uninsured, individuals residing within a 6 mile radius of the facility. The brainchild of retired Reidsville physician, Dr. Paul A. Mabe, Jr. and a First Baptist Church planning committee, The Clinic is truly “community built” as over 130 volunteer workers and area businesses united to turn vision into reality with the completion of a 2800 square foot healthcare facility at 315 S. Main Street, Reidsville. The Clinic recognizes the right of low income, uninsured citizens of Rockingham County to have access to healthcare that compassionately meets their essential medical, dental, and pharmacy needs. It is designed to reduce the burden placed upon hospital emergency rooms by closing the access gap

in the local healthcare delivery system. By providing primary and preventative medical care to this vulnerable population, Free Clinic patients experience improved health status and are able to be productive members of the workforce and provide for their families with produces a ripple effect of economic benefit across the county. In October 2005, The Clinic Board of Directors heeded the cry of the uninsured across the county by expanding the original service radius to incorporate all of Rockingham County. The name of the organization changed accordingly (Free Clinic of Rockingham County, Inc.) to reflect its expanded service population. A private, non-profit organization, The clinic doesn’t receive any government funding to support its operation and is completely dependent upon the generosity of private donations and charitable trusts and foundations. A small paid staff supports operational and administrative needs; however, all Thursday evening clinics are made possible by the helpful hands and caring

proving quality assurance to its stakeholders and funders. 315 S. Main Street Reidsville, NC 27320 336-349-3220

A psychiatrist prescribed a $90 bottle of pills and promised it would boost her patient’s discernment and intelligence. A month later, the patient returned. “Dr. Strathburn, I believe that medicine you prescribed is worthless. And I was very disturbed to learn you own stock in the drug company.” “See? You’re wiser already.”

Due to a measles outbreak in neighboring Stokes County, the Rockingham County Department of Public Health will collaborate with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Immunization Branch (NCDHHS-IB) to offer a free measles vaccination clinic weekdays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. The clinic will be held at the health department located at 371 NC 65 in Wentworth. The targeted population for the special clinic is children and adults who are not current with their measles vaccinations. What is Measles? Measles is a vaccine – preventable infectious viral disease. It begins with a fever that last for a couple of days, followed by a cough, runny nose, and conjunctivitis (pink eye). A rash starts on the face and upper neck, spreads down the back and trunk, then extends to the arms and hands as well as the legs and feet. After about five days, the rash begins to fade. If someone develops any of these symptoms, they should remain at home, contact their health care provider and/or the health department for further instructions. Measles is highly contagious, even before infected people develop a rash. As of April 18, 2013, 8 cases have been confirmed in North Carolina – 7 in Stokes County and 1 in Orange County. Complications from measles can be serious. They

occur more commonly in children younger than 5 years old and adults 20 years of age or older. For every 1,000 children who get measles one or two will die from the disease. In fact, worldwide, measles is still a significant cause of vaccine-preventable death among children. According to Rockingham County Health Director, Glenn Martin, “Vaccination is the key to reducing the spread of disease. At the current time there have been no cases of measles in our county. That’s why it is so important to provide additional opportunities for citizens to get vaccinated.” The limited, statesupplied vaccine will be given on a first come – first serve basis. The Best Protection against Measles – the MMR Vaccine Measles vaccine is usually given as part of a combination vaccine that provides protection against three diseases: measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). This vaccine is strongly endorsed by medical and public health experts as safe and effective. ÿ Children should get 2 doses of the MMR vaccine (first dose 12-15 months of age; second dose 4-6 years of age-prior to entering school). ÿ Some infants younger than 12 months should get a dose of MMR if they are traveling out of the country or have been exposed to measles. ÿ Some adults should also get MMR vaccine: generally, anyone

18 years of age or older who was born after 1956 should get at least one dose of MMR vaccine, unless they can show that they have either been vaccinated or had all three diseases. Some people should not get the MMR vaccine or should wait, such as: • Pregnant women • People who are sick at the time of the shot is scheduled. • Anyone who had a life-threatening allergic reaction to a previous dose of MMR or MMRV (combine measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella/chickenpox) vaccine. • Anyone who has ever had a lifethreatening allergic reaction to the antibiotic neomycin or any other component of MMR vaccine. • People with compromised immune systems, should consult with their doctor before receiving the MMR vaccine. Today, thanks to vaccines, very few children in the United States get measles. The number of people with measles has decreased by more than 99% since a measles vaccine was licensed in 1963. But to keep people protected against measles, we need to always have a high level of vaccination in the community. For more information about your immunization status or the Measles Vaccination Clinic, call 336-342-8140.

Rabies Vaccination Clinics Scheduled May 4: Veterinarians are cooperating again this year with local animal control officers and the Rockingham County Department of Public Health to offer rabies clinics for dogs and cats. Rabies continues to be a public health threat in Rockingham County, and vaccinating pets will help to remedy the problem and keep the rabies virus from threatening pets and people. There have been three positive rabies cases so far this year. An unvaccinated pet dog in the Reidsville area came into contact with a rabid raccoon and had to be euthanized. We also have recorded two positive skunks so far this year. During 2012 in Rockingham County, eleven wild animals (five skunks, five raccoons, one fox), tested positive for rabies, a deadly viral disease transmitted by rabid animals. In addition to the wild animals, one cow and one pit bull dog tested positive for rabies for a total of thirteen animals testing positive for rabies.

Rockingham County has recorded 171 positive animal rabies cases since positive cases began appearing on July 3, 1996. “Rabies Vaccination Clinics are one way to help control the spread of rabies from the wild animal population to domestic animals and people,” said Edwin Stott, Rockingham County Environmental Health Director. “Every dog and cat that is over the age of four months is required by North Carolina State law to be vaccinated against the rabies virus,” Stott said. People may be exposed to the rabies virus from the saliva, spinal fluid, or brain tissue of a rabid animal. The exposure may be by a bite or scratch from a rabid animal or from saliva that gets on a pet after the pet fights with a rabid animal. A person may be exposed if he or she has scratches, cuts or abrasions on their skin and contacts the saliva of a rabid animal. A person may also be exposed if saliva from a rabid animal contacts a mucous membrane.
