On October 21st at 7am four Rockingham County public officials were just released from an “Overnight Jail Stay for United Way.” These Jailbirds, with the highest United Way donations were: Rockingham County Safety/Risk Manager Mark Holzer, Information Technology Director David Whicker, Board of Commissioners Chairman James Kallam, and Health Director Glenn Martin. The Rockingham County United Way Jailbirds were offi-
cially greeted, booked, fed and provided black & white uniforms by Sheriff Sam Page at 6 p.m. last night. They remained in jail overnight and were released at 6 o’clock the next morning. Thousands of dollars in votes/contributions were donated by Rockingham County Governmental employees and citizens to send four out of 11 public officials to jail. But the campaign still needs additional

Each year as part of the Senior Games and SilverArts for Rockingham County we have a performing arts competition. There are vocalists, instrumentalists, comedians, dancers and line dancers. The size of the group varies from large groups to small groups or soloists, each competing for one spot to represent Rockingham County at the state level. Because of the various categories it makes it a diffiIrving cult decision which should be Rockingham County's pick. A group could win first place in their particular category but not be chosen as the representative. We have three qualified judges that determine who our winner should be. This year Eddy Irving won the Rockingham County Performing Arts Competition in May and represented our county in the state games in Raleigh on Friday, September 30th. Eddy competed in the vocal solo category and placed 2nd in the competition. There were competitors from Salisbury Rowan, Cherokee, Thomasville Davidson-Lexington, Onslow, Greater Greensboro, Wayne and Johnson and other counties in his category.

Letters to the Editor How I learned the importance of "off year" elections!! All of us know the importance of four year elections for national and state elections. We rush to the polls to vote (or we should). We tend to forget that our municipal, township and city elections are just as important. Many of us do not realize the importance of "off year" elections. Personally, I would usually vote during an off season only if I felt strongly that one candidate was a better choice than another. The Cary Citizen editor and publisher put it very well in an article. "Voter turnout is typically low in off year, local elections. But, arguably, local elections are the most meaningful and important choices we get to make at the ballot box. County and town governments deliver many of the services we use every day - water, sewage, waste, zoning, education." They are all on the ballot in the city of Eden on November 8, 20ll. My personal experience of apathy was when I was so sure that my candidate of choice could win over the opponent, it wasn't worth a trip to the polls. Obviously many people felt the same way. No one thought this person could lose so we didn't give our support by voting. Well, it backfired. Simply because we assumed the candidate could win, the opponent got enough votes out to win the election. In the elections coming up in Eden on November 8, 2011, most councilmen are running unopposed. I have to admit this is a bit disturbing as I always enjoy vetting the candidates. But, we can not be fooled that just because they are running unopposed, our vote does not count. We must remember the traditional saying "If I do not vote, I cannot complain." We should know our representatives whether they are opposed or not. How can we contact our precinct council person if we don't even know who they are? How can we gauge their representation if we do not follow their votes on important issues that affect the citizens? So many of us only appear at a city council meeting when we have a "beef" or problem and we are talking to a group of representatives that we know nothing about at all. Voting is a civil right and a civil duty if we expect to have a voice in our own backyard issues. We should not have to wait until the newspaper informs us what our representatives are considering. We should demand transparency and public notices to the citizens so we can be informed. Democracies are, as Lincoln made perfectly clear "governments of, for and by the people" yet we tend to wait for a problem to arise before we get to know the personalities, political beliefs and past voting actions of our representatives. This year, I hope, that citizens of Eden will show the highest number of "off year" voters to send the message that we are paying attention.
Letter to the Editor Before the landfill people can actually operate, they must obtain a contract with Rockingham County. As of this time they have not even asked for one and clearly are trying to get around that legal requirement. Therefore, they have asked that they be allowed to disregard it until later in the permitting process. Clearly, they believe that they will have a better chance of forcing the county to do business with them if they can proceed as they want to. WILL OF THE PEOPLE believe that they should be required to first apply for a contract. If they are denied a contract we will have avoided a great deal of expense and hassling trying to avoid their pushing in on us as they obviously intend to do. Unfortunately at a recent meeting of the county commissioners, three commissioners (Flynt, Bass and Travis) voted in such a way as to allow the landfill to have its own way. This was clearly a vote against the interest of the vast majority of our people, and there is no reasonable explanation for the vote. Commissioners Mabe and Kallam voted for the people. Among other things, Chairman Kallam in support of Commissioner Mabe’s motion forcefully pointed out that as of now the county commissioners do not know who the real applicant is, know nothing about the company and don’t even know who owns it. He strongly questioned the wisdom of going forward under such circumstances. The other three ignored him just as they are ignoring the people. In supporting the wishes of the landfill company, one of the commissioners went against his political party, which had adopted a resolution opposing the landfill; went against WILL OF THE PEOPLE of which he was then a member, and knowingly went against most of the people in Rockingham County. His real reasons are not known, but we have reason to believe that it was primarily jealousy. Any commissioner or county employee who acts favorably towards the landfill is unfit to hold an office or a position in Rockingham County and should resign. Something is beginning to smell bad in Wentworth. Thomas S. Harrington, Chairman Will of the People

Adopting Pets during the Holidays The holiday season will soon be upon us, and that means that many people will be looking into buying pets for friends and loved ones. However, there are a couple of common problems that need to be brought to the attention of would-be pet owners. Brittany Hughes-Antunez of the Rockingham County Animal

Shelter says that the biggest problem she sees is people buy pets without considering the burdens of pet ownership. She finds that in holiday seasons, many people will rush into the adoption process without forethought. This can lead to undesirable situations, ranging from giving up and returning the pets to abuse or neglect. The Rockingham County Animal Shelter, which has been open since May and taken in 2200 animals since then, is making attempts to mitigate this problem. From December 12th to the 17th, the shelter will run the “Home for the Holidays” promotion, which aims at getting animals adopted as well as educating owners about their responsibilities. During that week, the price for adoption will be dropped for the animals and certain other deals throughout the week, such as the rabies clinic on December 17th.
In addition to “Home for the Holidays,” the shelter takes other steps year Kevin Griffin round to help the Assignment Writer problem of impetuous petowning. It is the policy of the shelter that all the animals be spayed neutered, and the shelter takes care of the first round of vaccinations to the animals. Owners are told of their duty to continue the process of routine vaccination and medical care where the shelter left off. Also, a one week waiting period is required to give potential owners time to consider what they are doing. The Rockingham County Animal Shelter is located at 250 Cherokee Camp Road, off of County Home Road in Wentworth. The shelter may be contacted at (336) 394-0075.

Goodwill Industries opens new Eden Community Resource Center in partnership with RCC, City of Eden and CenturyLink City of Eden will fund new center and increase job resources Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina (GICNC) is the proud recipient of a generous donation from the City of Eden. The city has awarded GICNC $120,000 towards Goodwill Industries’ Community Resource Center, which opened Monday, Oct. 31 at 220-H Kings Highway in the Kingsway Plaza shopping center. “We are honored to receive such generous support from the City of Eden, furthering our efforts in assisting members of the community seeking employment,” said Rick Gorham, president/CEO of GICNC. “This support will provide our organization the capacity to provide appropriate curriculum and networking opportunities for those in need of employment. Working with corporate partners such as Rockingham Community College and CenturyLink, we can have a greater reach into the community and maximize our dollars to benefit job seekers.” “Many people in the Eden community have lost their jobs due to the downturn in the economy or technological advancements and are seeking new career paths,” said Eden City Councilman Wayne Tuggle who along with fellow Councilman Jim Burnette spearheaded this project. “The creation of the Eden Community Resource Center at Goodwill Industries will provide greater opportunities for people in our community to find employment and to find ful-
fillment in their work.” Burnette echoed Tuggle’s remarks. “We were thrilled to approve the financial support to Goodwill Industries because it will fulfill the hopes and dreams of thousands of people in our community,” he stated. The center is all about opportunity and employment. Weekday classes are held at different times and include Employability Skills, GED/ABE, English as Second Language, Introduction to Computers and Advanced Computers. This center also offers invaluable assistance. Counseling services provide guidance about advancing your education, assistance with college applications and offer information on scholarships and other financial aid options. Visit the center to use a computer to access the Internet and word processing programs; phones to make job contacts; and notebooks with printed job leads. (Computer use is limited to job search and educational activities.) Goodwill will write your resume and print it on quality paper for a professional look. You can also use the center to fax resumes, cover letters and applications; browse newspapers and other publications; and find information about other programs that provide employment services, educational programs and other opportunities to prepare you for gainful employment. Eden industry has been very supportive of this project. Nick Freitag, director of wholesale dis-

Wright Tavern holds Celebration Wright Tavern’s Restoration Celebration is being held November 5th from 10 am to 3pm. In the 1960s and ‘70s, Wright Tavern (c 1816) was restored. In the ‘80s, antebellum outbuildings were acquired. This year those buildings were restored and additional authentic elements have been added inside the Tavern, thanks to a generous donation from the Marion S. Covington Foundation. Come join us to celebrate this achievement. Get a glimpse of the past. Activities include games, live animals, exhibitors, food, and history. Come trace your family’s history with the genealogy folks from Family Search. Learn to make candles with the Mayodan Moravian Church. Let Frank Bray show you how our ancestors smoked meat and sample some, win homemade desserts in the cake walk, watch quilting, pottery, and hearth cooking demonstrations, pan for gems with the Rockingham County Mineral Club, and much more. Admission is free; donations are greatly appreciated.

Please Help! Call 336-623-4428 if you can do anything to help our seniors! (11am - 4pm Mon, Tues, Thur., Fri. and Sat. Closed on Wed. & Sun.) We Need Volunteers!
Stop Illegal Dumping Rockingham County Code Enforcement received over 60 calls from citizens in 2001 about illegal dumping of deer carcasses along roadsides and creeks. Last year, 12 calls were received by Code Enforcement where the majority involved deer that had been harvested by hunters who used the meat as a source of food. In some cases, the deer were illegally killed and antlers removed and thrown out on roadsides throughout the county. In the past few years, Rockingham County Code Enforcement and the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office have worked with local Wildlife Officers to catch violators who had improperly disposed of deer carcasses along dirt roads and less traveled highways. The county will continue to monitor the situation during this hunting season. Increased patrolling of these areas, with the help of surveillance cameras, has reduced the amount of calls received in the past few years.

We need volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in Rockingham County. You will be working with a child that is in foster care and in the custody of the Rockingham County Department of Social Services due to abuse and/or neglect. These children need someone to speak on their behalf in Court and you can be that someone! All that is required to become a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer is to be at least 18 years old, pass criminal & sexual offender background checks, provide three references (such as friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc.), and complete a training session at our Rockingham County office. Once your training is complete, you will be Sworn-In by a District Court Judge and assigned a case. Your casework will consist of visiting with your child at least once a month along with preparing a basic court report for the Judge every few months. In this court report, you will provide information such as the child’s wishes, what you feel is in the best interest of the child, how the child is adjusting to foster care and doing in school, and how the child’s visitations are going with the parents, etc. You will only need to devote about three hours a month to your casework plus one day in court every few months. I will work closely with you and provide you with as much support as needed. If you are interested in becoming a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer please contact Amanda Benavides at (336) 634-6106. Please note that the Rockingham County Guardian ad Litem Office is now located inside the new Court House at 170 NC Hwy 65, Reidsville, NC 27320. We are on the 3rd floor,

The Draper Elementary School has a program called “Adopt A Veteran.” Each year the school hosts a parade, which includes the Draper Elementary School students and ALL Veterans. Each child will create a poster with a particular veteran’s information. These children will then carry their poster in the parade. On Wednesday, November 9, ALL VETERANS and children will leave the school at 8:45 a.m. and walk downtown to Draper Village, cross at the light at the former bank and proceed to the Ve t e r a n ’ s Park for a very special ceremony that will begin at 9:15 a.m. Anyone who is unable to walk is encouraged to meet us at the park or you may ride the DAV Van from the school. The public is invited to join in the festivities. Please put this on your calendar and let’s make this the best parade yet!! This program is to honor all Veterans and to let the children gain an appreciation for the sacrifices you all made for our country.
PROMISES PROMISES A mother came home from shopping and found her newly baked pie dug out crudely from the center. The crime tool – a gooey spoon – lay in the sink. Crumbs were all over the kitchen counter and floor. She called he son into the kitchen. “Pete,” she said sternly, “you promised me you wouldn’t touch that pie before dinner.” Peter hung his head. And I promised you I’d spank you if you did,” she continued. Peter brightened. “Now that I’ve broken my promise,” he offered, “I think it’; be all right for you to break yours, too!”

Rockingham County Small Farm Day If you or a family member are thinking about starting or expanding a small-scale farm Operation or would simply like to learn about agricultural enterprises that can help you meet your personal or business goals, then there is an event you won’t want to miss. If you would like the chance to network and ask questions of successful producers and North Carolina agriculture personnel you are invited to attend the Rockingham County Small Farm Day program. Come learn about alternative crops to grow, important production decisions, and arketing techniques for small farms. You can successfully make a profit on small amounts of well-managed farmland. “Essential Components for Successful Strawberry Production in North Carolina”, will be presented by Jeremy Pattison, Assistant Professor, Strawberry Breeding and Genetics, NCSU This session will highlight the equipment needs, land preparation, and cultural specifics from planting to harvesting strawberries in NC. Numerous topics will be covered from plant types, cultivars, fertility, irrigation, frost and freeze protection, pest management, harvest, and marketing considerations. “Strategies for Insect Management and New Pest Update”, will be presented by Hannah Burrack, Entomology Extension Specialist, NCSU. This class will explain the importance of monitoring, managing, and controlling insects on the small farm. Insects of many fruits and vegetables can be trapped, identified and observed to determine the correct life stages that may be causing potential economic loss to yields. “Weed Management to Increase Crop Yields”, will be presented by Wayne Mitchem, Horticulture Extension Specialist in North, Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. Fruit and vegetable yields are drastically reduced when there are major weed problems in the growing area. Weeds compete with planted crops for light, soil, nutrients and water. There are critical weed-free periods for most crops that directly relate to yield and profits. Come learn about important pre-emergence and post-emergence weed management techniques. “Growing Customers”, will be presented by Greta Lint, President of Greta’s Promotions & Strategies, Inc. Now that you’ve spent your time and money growing products to sell, how do you do it? How do you reach new customers? How do you build a repeat customer base and loyalty? Greta Lint will give a lively, interactive session to help you increase your bottom line.

Health Tips Providing Solutions For Better Heath Diabetes: How big is the risk? Did you know that one in four people have diabetes and they don't even know it? Could you be one of them? If so, you're in "good company." About 26 million Americans have diabetes. Another 79 million adults in the U.S. have a condition thatcould turn into diabetes, called prediabetes. Diabetes happens when your body can't use glucose (a type of sugar) the right way. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose enter cells, where they use this sugar as a source of energy. With diabetes, your body either doesn't make enough insulin or it can't respond well to insulin. Then you can have symptoms of too much glucose, such as increased urination, extreme thirst, and weight loss for no known reason. Certain people are more likely than others to get diabetes. Here's something that may come as a surprise: During the 12 years of a recent study, diabetes doubled in Asian Americans, most of whom were immigrants. And they were more likely than Caucasians to have diabetes, even though they were less likely to be carrying around extra weight, which is a risk factor for diabetes. What could account for this? Researchers think it's a combination of genes and lifestyle. It could be that Asians are more susceptible to a poor diet. They are also more likely to carry any extra weight they do have around their middles. This visceral fat is linked to type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is not something to ignore. If left uncontrolled, it can lead to a whole host of complications, including high blood pressure, kidney failure, eye problems, and nerve damage. That's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg! A deadly duo can be in store when diabetes is combined with other health problems. For reasons not well understood, women with both breast cancer and diabetes have a 50 percent increased risk of dying. When combined with depression, diabetes means you're twice as likely to die, especially from heart disease. It could be that people with depression may find it harder to take care of themselves. So you can see why it's so important to address both conditions. How can you help prevent this serious disease? The steps are simple, but not always easy to do. A healthy diet and weight control are critical. Physical activity is also of prime importance! A recent Australian study showed that the more you walk, the lower your risk of diabetes. They tracked nearly 600 middle-aged adults for five years, giving them a pedometer to use. Here's what they found: People who walked 10,000 steps daily at least 5 days a week were three times more protected against diabetes than those who walked just 3,000 steps a day – even when other factors such as diet, smoking, and alcohol were taken into account.What else can you do? Well, check with me, of course. I can point you to any diabetes information or products our store provides to either help you prevent diabetes or better manage the disease, if you already have it. Also we have a diabetes education class every third Thursday at the Eden Chamber of Commerce conference room. No reservations are necessary. Just show up at 3:00 pm. Please call if you have questions or concerns. Eden Drug is a full service, family owned pharmacy serving the individual needs of our patients.

WENTWORTH, NC (Oct. 10, 2011) – Rockingham County has received a $7.8 million grant for a 9-1-1 consolidated communications system. The $7,826,000 grant will provide a consolidated communications system in Rockingham County with one, single answering point. This will improve overall efficiency and quality of the Rockingham County Emergency Communications process to further the efforts of all emergency responding agencies to access information. The agreement involves the Rockingham County Sheriff; Police Chiefs, 9-1-1 Director, Fire Chief Council, EMS Director, the Rescue Squad Representative, and the Rockingham County IT Director. “A lot of hard work was put into this effort and we’re very appreciative of the cooperation between all the local governments to make this a successful endeavor,” said Lt. Bill Roland of the Reidsville Police Department. Eden Deputy Police Chief Greg Light said, “Our main goal for this grant is to help with safety for the citizens of this county. Now the 91-1 immediate response time will be faster and Roland could be the difference in life and death.” Director of Rockingham County 9-1-1 Susan J. Hall explained how key players came together and worked together (city and county) to form a common bond to serve the citizens of the entire county with the best emergency serLight vices (9-1-1 system) available. “We will now be able to purchase state-ofthe-art/Next Generation (NG-9-1-1) equipment. The committee worked diligently, effectively, in a short amount of time to meet the North Carolina 9-1-1 Board’s requirements,” Hall said. Emergency services will become onestop-shopping because there will not be a need for one-button transfers to cities. Instead, any emergency service a citizen needs will be hanHall dled by simply dialing 9-1-1, once the new 91-1 Center is in operation, including EMS, Fire, Rescue, Law Enforcement, Sheriff, and Animal Control. Hall was one of the first employees/telecommunicators that Rockingham County hired and has seen technology evolve from rotary dial telephones to digital service. Hall, Roland, and Light collectively thanked all the City Managers, County Manager, and the North Carolina 9-1-1 Board. The North Carolina 9-1-1 Grant Committee stated that the Rockingham County grant was well put together, very detailed, and very specific. The North Carolina 9-1-1 Board offered the Consolidation Grant encouraging Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP’s) to consider consolidation. Presently, there are 128 PSAP's in the State of North Carolina. The Rockingham County Consolidation of three PSAP's (Reidsville, Eden, and Rockingham County) will allow citizens of Rockingham County one, single answering point. Reidsville and Eden cities will no longer have to transfer EMS/Rescue calls to the county for dispatch. All services will be dispatched out of one loca-

Seeking Information in Strong Armed Robbery Reported: Wednesday September 28, 2011, Settle Bridge Rd near Pannel Rd. in Reidsville On Wednesday September 28, 2011at 7:13pm Larry Duane Hopper, 46, reported to the Sheriff’s Office that he had been assaulted and robbed of money and medications. Hopper reports that he was parked on the roadside at Settle Bridge Rd. near Pannel Rd in Reidsville in his 2002 White Chevrolet Malibu due to engine problems. He had the hood of the vehicle up and was working on the vehicle when two unknown black males in their 20s pulled up behind his car in a faded burgundy Ford passenger car, possibly a Tempo. According to Hopper, one of the assailants approached him and asked if he needed any help; the other came around from the opposite side of his vehicle and struck him in the head from behind. The two assailants then began repeatedly hitting Hopper and stole $40 from his wallet, and two prescription medications along with a Greenleaf Electric Meter that he had inside his car. Hopper stated that he is unfamiliar with either of the assailants, but heard one refer to the other as “TDOG” during the incident. Anyone with any information about this robbery is asked to contact Detective Jason Joyce at (336) 634-3238 or Rockingham County CRIMESTOPPERS at (336) 349-9683.

volunteers are welcome. The” Eden Saturday Church School,” a non-profit all volunteer organization, was established in the 1980’s by the late Horace and Betty Penn family, who had a beautiful daughter named Ruthie. The church school has had several homes, but it is now conducted at Leaksville United Methodist Church on Henry Street in Eden. We meet from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. each Saturday, with exception of weather cancelations and holidays. We are totally funded by contributions from local churches and individual donations are also welcome. The main purpose is to support the emotionally, physically and mentally handicapped adults in our area. By emphasizing Christian principles through a curriculum based Sunday school lesson derived from the King James Holy Bible. We teach the importance of God’s love, healing, and through obedience, live more abundant and purposeful life. Most of our students live in a group home, and really look forward to coming to our class for a different setting with fun and crafts involved. We also minister to several adults who live in family environments as well as some who live in their own apartment. Local churched are scheduled to provide transportation and refreshments on a monthly basis. We also celebrate at the end of our school year by having on elaborate fun and games outing with a cook-out sponsored by the Men’s Group of Leaksville Moravian Church usually at Freedom Park. “I have been involved with the Church school for over six years through my home church (First Christian Disciples of Christ),: says Mike Brame, “where I serve as world outreach chairperson. I decided years ago, world outreach was to start locally! Now, for the past two years I have served as Eden Saturday Church School Chairperson or coordinator and also teacher. I could not function properly without a wonderful staff who support this mission 110%.” These special individuals include but are not limited to: Judy Knight – Curriculum Coordinator; Tonie Spann – Secretary; Vicky Martin – Treasurer; Betty Cruise – Transportation & Refreshment Coordinator; Faye Neal – Teacher & Advisor/ also Cofounder; Jocelyn Gordon – Teacher & Advisor/ Former Missionary; Mary Collins – Helper & Advisor/ also Cofounder, Elaine Craddock – Helper & Advisor; and Mike Hurd – Social Events Coordinator.

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life Continued from Page 14 tion. Madison, Mayodan and Stoneville were already included within Rockingham County. With adoption of the new 9-1-1 Standards, the two cities (Reidsville and Eden) could no longer meet the NC 9-1-1 Standard requirements. PSAP's have to be manned by two (2) Telecommunicators 24/7. Both Reidsville and Eden only employ one TC per shift. With only one telecommunicator on duty at a time, this could potentially result in a call for service to go unanswered if they were to receive a high-risk or life threatening call at the same time. This is one of the main reasons the NC 9-1-1 Board was pushing for PSAP Consolidation. Next steps include review of grant stipulations; approval from governing bodies; and implementing a new governing board to oversee design, construction, and coordinated oversight. The 9-1-1 Grant Committee primarily consisted of: City Of Reidsville: Ed Hunt, Chief; Bill Roland, LT; Rhonda Wheeler, IT Department; Gilbert Noetzel, IT Department City Of Eden: Reece Pyrtle, Chief; Greg Light, Major; Kevin Taylor, IT Department Town Of Mayodan: Charlie Caruso, Chief; Donnie Barker, Major Town of Madison: Perry Webster, Chief Town of Stoneville: Frank Moore, Chief Fire Chief's Council: Tim McMillion, President/Chief Jacob's Creek (Station 180) Rockingham County: Susan Hall, 9-1-1 Director Johnny Bowles, Emergency Management Mike Apple, Finance Director Tom Robinson, County Manager Ben Neal, Personnel Director Eugene Russell, County Attorney David Whicker, IT Director Sam Page, Sheriff Billy King/Perry Brookshire, Sheriff’s Office Rodney Stewart, EMS Operation Supervisor/Rescue Squad Steve Hale, Retired ES Director Commonwealth Radio: Ron Wells, Dean Gusler, Jason Maurakis Wireless Communications: Bruce Williams Carolina Recording: Paul Brantner For more information, contact Susan J.

RCC wins partnership award WENTWORTH – For years, Rockingham Community College has partnered with Goodwill Industries of Central NC, Inc. in order to help individuals in our community. Through the Goodwill Resource Center in Reidsville, RCC has been providing human resources classes (including resume writing, interviewing tips and techniques, and more) GED classes, courses in computer training, certified nursing assistant, and more. Collaboration between the two entities began in 2004, a time when Rockingham County began experiencing high unemployment rates. In 2010, Goodwill expanded the Resource Center in Reidsville by 3,000 square feet. RCC furnished each classroom in the expanded area with furniture and equipment. Debbie Mitchell, vice president of career development at Goodwill in Reidsville, describes the continuing relationship as, “the flagship model program for what we do best in Workforce Development.” Margo Lindsey, basic skills coordinator, and Tommiann Hill, human resources coordinator, accepted the award on behalf of the college. In addition, former RCC student, Dot Dunlap, current receptionist at the Goodwill Resource Center received the Employee of the Year award. At 60, Dunlap completed many of the RCC courses currently offered at Goodwill. As such, she serves as an example of how the two agencies help individuals learn skills which enable them to return to the workforce. It is why Dunlap is so passionate about the programs offered at the Resource Center. Her understanding and knowledge of those programs led Susan Steinberger, Goodwill’s senior director of business development, to say, “Dot is phenomenal. She is able to talk with our students and help them understand what they can achieve at Goodwill.” Dunlap, she added, serves as a personal inspiration to others. RCC and Goodwill plan to continue their partnership in Eden when a newly created Resource Center will be opened at Kingsway Plaza located at 220 W. Kings Highway.

being housed in unsanitary and inhumane conditions and appear to lack proper medical care. This case began after the Sheriff’s Office, HSUS and local rescue groups received complaints from citizens concerned for the welfare of the animals. The groups collaborated to provide animal handling and assistance with transportation, logistics, and financial needs for the rescue of the animals. When Deputies arrived on scene they found many of the animals appeared to be in poor health and in need of immediate medical care. The ammonia levels were so high in some areas that investigators had to wear special masks. Many of the animals looked underweight, infested with parasites and suffering from upper respiratory infections. Once safely removed, they will also be thoroughly examined by a team of veterinarians and provided medical treatment. The animals will be taken to the Rockingham County Animal Shelter initially and those animals that can be adopted out after receiving treatment will be. This case is still under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office and no charges have yet been filed against the property owner.

DRBA Plans Smith River Float On November 5 the Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) will celebrate autumn with a float on the most popular section of the Smith River—Marrowbone Creek Access to Mitchell Bridge Access in Henry County, Virginia. Meeting at 10:00 a. m. at the Richard P. Gravely, Jr. Nature Preserve, 2525 Eggleston Falls Road in Ridgeway, Virginia (36.611067, -79.817712), the group will launch canoes and kayaks at the nearby access point. The 3.5-mile "blueway" Smith River Trails section, rated Class 1, is suitable for novice paddlers. For boat rentals and shuttle, contact Smith River Adventure Outfitters, 276-252-0701, www.smithriveradventureoutfitters.com or Three Rivers Outfitters, 336-627-6215, 276340-3983, www.3-r-o.com. Trip coordinator is Wayne Kirkpatrick, President of DRBA, aided by other DRBA members

both Patrick and Henry counties are named, lived on a large plantation near the headwaters of Leatherwood Creek from 1779 - 86. Just below the mouth of Leatherwood Creek is a broad rounded boulder in the middle of the river. Known locally as "Lunch Rock," it makes "a perfect spot to stop for a break," according to "An Insider's Guide to the Smith River," DRBA's detailed river guide available at www.danriver.org. Henry County, in partnership with DRBA, has made the Smith River accessible to the public over the past four years by building public access points at eight new sites along the river, including the Marrowbone Creek Access, which opened in 2007, and Mitchell Bridge Access, built in 2009. Participants are invited to linger after the outing to enjoy the Gravely Nature Preserve, part of the county's "greenway" Smith River Trail system, which was dedicated in April, 2008. Developed by DRBA and Henry County, with funding from The Harvest Foundation, the 75-acre preserve features two miles of interpretive trails. Historic features include early twentieth-century tobacco barns and the Burgess Family cemetery, reminders of former owners of the property. Industrialist, civic leader, and archaeologist Richard P. Gravely, Jr. owned the property in the late twentieth century and left instructions for its preservation as a wildlife and nature conservancy. The preserve now hosts educational and recreational events for all ages, including day camps, fitness walks, historic presentations, workshops, afterschool programs, and geocaching. Participants in the outing are asked to bring boat and paddles, life jackets, lunch and water, to dress in layers of artificial (quick-drying) fabric and to sign a waiver. To reach the Gravely Nature Preserve from US 220 south of Martinsville, turn east at a traffic light onto Old Sand Road. Cross the US 58 overpass and immediately turn left onto Eggleston Falls Road. Travel about two miles to the preserve, which is on the left, across from the foot of Old Mill Road. Outings and meetings of the Dan River Basin Association are open to the public without charge. For information about the outing, contact Wayne Kirkpatrick, 276-694-4449 or firstname.lastname@example.org For membership information, visit www.danriver.org.

Renovating Stoneville Elementary School’s Butterfly Garden WENTWORTH, NC The Rockingham County Soil & Water Conservation District is helping Stoneville Elementary School renovate a butterfly garden with a weather station, hummingbird area, groundwater monitoring station, and wildflower planting. Volunteers from Stoneville Garden Club, RCC Science Club, Rockingham County High School Environmental Club, PTA, Kevin Knight, Keith French, and other interested citizens worked on the butterfly garden project in October while second and fifth graders at the school planted seeds and lay a rock border. The butterfly garden project’s goal is to enhance the already existing area so that the children and community will enjoy a broader perspective of our natural ecosystems and how they function together. Rockingham County Soil & Water Conservation District received in April a $2,500 grant with an in-kind match from the North Carolina Foundation for Soil & Water Conservation. The financial support for this grant was obtained from the Walmart Foundation. The butterfly garden was started by the Stoneville Garden Club and club member, Leota Deaton, still visits the school to impart gardening wisdom.

Mowhawk partners with Cooperative Christian Ministries As people across the country struggle to put food on the table, for many, the need for hope has never been greater. Last month employees at Mohawk Industries' Karastan Rug facility in Eden, North Carolina, helped to provide relief and restore a bit of hope to local families in need. Partnering with Eden-based Cooperative Christian Ministries (CCM), people from Karastan participated in a weeklong food drive. "We were so fortunate to be involved with this initiative, especially partnering with a great organization like CCM," stated Megan Arrington, H u m a n Resources Manager at the Karastan facility. "The men and women at Karastan are true servants in the community. All of us care deeply for those less fortunate, and I am so proud of our participation in this important project." Employees donated hundreds of different items, including breakfast cereal, pasta, sugar and flour, canned goods, peanut butter, beans, vegetables, cookies and snacks; all of which will be packaged into food bags for area families in need. Dick and Dale Hallett, volunteers from CCM, picked up the food on September 29. "Currently, we serve over 120 families in the area," said Hallett, "but the demand is increasing as

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life Continued from Page 19 Place a hedge apple in a small bowl, plant tray or on a piece of foil. They do not need to be completely contained. However, as they may seep juice that could stain flooring or other materials, put them into or onto a receptacle of some sort. Deposit hedge apples in closets, under the sink or around the perimeter of your home. One hedge apple in each closet or area is sufficient. Hedge apples are also interesting and appealing to look at, so you might opt to pile several of them in an attractive bowl and use them as a centerpiece or fall decoration. Discard the hedge apples once they have turned brown, which is typically within a month or two.

ReDirections earns grant
Just drive you car, bring the title, registration, paycheck stubs, DL and SS card, proof of residence and you can walk away with the cash you need today...
REIDSVILLE - ReDirections of Rockingham County, a nonprofit agency located at 1311 Freeway Drive in Reidsville, was the recipient recently of a grant administered by the Governor’s Crime Commission for the United States Attorney’s Office. The one year grant provides funding for a part-time program manager to assist local law enforcement in their efforts to fight gun crimes, gangs and violent criminals. The manager will serve as a liaison to all six local law enforcement agencies: Eden Police, Madison Police, Mayodan Police, Reidsville Police, Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office, and Stoneville Police. The grant application was a collaboration between ReDirections Director Alexey Ferrell and the Board of Directors for the 17-A Gang Prevention and Crime Scene Unit Project, a county-wide board consisting of area law enforcement executives and political leaders. The grant was an effort to continue the work of this project’s initiative, begun two years ago under District Attorney Philip Berger. In July, the 17-A Board, now referred to as the Project SAFE Rockingham County Advisory Board, received generous financial backing from the Reidsville Area Foundation for supplemental support, and Guilio Dattero, a retired Reidsville Police officer, was hired as the part-time program manager. The Board of Directors saw the recent grant proposal as an opportunity for law enforcement in the county to continue under the banner of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a United States Department of Justice initiative aimed at reducing gun and gang-related violence. Project SAFE Rockingham County (PSRC), the title under which the program now operates, joins about ten similar organizations in the United States Middle District of North Carolina. One of the primary duties of the Program Manager at ReDirections is to work closely by communicating and networking with officers from all the local police and sheriff’s departments, particularly the Rockingham County Gang Task Force Unit which is composed of officers from every city and the sheriff’s office, to reduce violent crime. One of the publicized strategies employed by PSN is to conduct offender notifications, or call-ins. Call-ins are structured meetings in which chronic and gang-involved violent offenders are called in to a single meeting and presented with a stern warning by a large

Part of the national success with PSN is the strong partnership between the community and law enforcement. This is evidenced in the final segment of the call-in session where PSRC Partners, consisting of area service providers under the direction of Rebecca Sauter of Project Re-entry, will present opportunities to the offenders for assistance. A wide array of social services, such as education, housing, and counseling, are offered to help ensure success for those who want to make positive changes in their lives. PSRC is now underway in Rockingham County, and the local departments will work with a number of area criminal justice partners: Division of Community Corrections, the District Attorney’s Office, the United States Attorney’s Office, UNC-Greensboro, Youth Involvement, Juvenile Services, and several other state and federal agencies. The first call-in for PSRC will be held in early November at the Agricultural Center in Wentworth. Program Manager Guilio Dattero is optimistic about the project, stating, “Officers from around the county have been working diligently to identify the gang-involved violent felons who will be called in. We’ve received incredible support in the early stages of PSRC by committed professionals, from the U.S. Attorney’s Office and UNC-Greensboro, Center for Youth, Family, and Community Partnerships.” For more information on PSRC, visit www.redirections.org or contact Dattero at ReDirections at 336.342.5238 ext. 12.
Sheriffs attend Washington discussion about Illegal Aliens [WASHINGTON]— Last month Sheriff Sam Page, Sheriff Terry Johnson, and other North Carolina Sheriffs attended a discussion with I.C.E. Immigration Asst. director responsible for 287-G and "Secure Communities" program, along with other Immigration officials in Washington, D.C. The topics discussed were the 287-G program and Secure Communities Program, and their effects on public safety and removal of criminal illegal aliens identified within the local jail system. Current concerns with the Mexican Drug Cartel were discussed with Sheriffs present, and included drug and illegal weapons trafficking into North Carolina and our local community. All Sheriffs present had the opportunity to discuss issues and concerns affecting their local jurisdictions utilizing current Immigration programs. Wednesday morning, October 12th on Capitol Hill, Sheriff Sam Page and panel of Sheriffs met with Congressional Caucus on Immigration Reform to continue discussion on Border Security, Immigration laws and effects of Mexican Drug Cartel on local jurisdictions in America including Rockingham County. Following the panel discussion these Sheriffs met with Congressional Representatives to address additional concerns. The panel discussion was provided covering illegal aliens coming into America, and effecting the interior and border states; and our concerns regarding Mexican Drug Cartels and Drug trafficking Organizations and the concerns of current and future violence. Recommendations regarding ways to involve the U.S. Military support and technology to improve border security and stem the flow of individuals aiming to harm American citizens that cross our porous borders, and spill over violence in our country. Those present were asked to commit to continue to build upon this National Security effort with local Sheriffs to work with U.S. Congress in a non- partisan process to seek solutions to these problems that we face. Sheriff Sam Page, NC, Past-President North Carolina Sheriffs Association, and Sheriff Chuck Jenkins, Maryland: are members of the National Sheriffs Association Immigration and Border Security Committee. This committee will convene in Washington D.C. in Jan. 2011.

L-R: Rockingham County Day Resource Case Manager Alicia Ross, Pre-Trial Release Case, Manager Ashley Hickman, and Day Resource Director Raina Holliday.
$640,000 Savings Due to Day Resource Center WENTWORTH, NC The Rockingham County Day Resource Center (DRC) provides a structured supervision program for offenders to complete intensive rehabilitation and educational programs. It represents success and savings for Rockingham County because state estimates say the program saved county taxpayers $640,000 last year. While some may have different opinions about these types of initiatives, one cannot argue with success and cost savings. The DRC is solely funded by the Criminal Justice Partnership Program which pays a portion of the director’s salary. During last fiscal year, the DRC maintained an average caseload of 45 offenders with a 56% rate of successful program completions. “It is my goal to increase county savings by using evidencebased-practices for our programs to enable the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners and county administrators the ability to apply these savings to other needed areas,” DRC Director Raina Holliday said. “First and foremost, we want to ensure our citizens’ safety.” she added. The goals of the DRC are to reduce offender arrest; to assist offenders in successful re-entry by providing needed services; and to increase public safety by holding offenders accountable. These goals are achieved by providing skillbased learning opportunities, educational and vocational training, and intensive community supervisions.

First Eden Jazz Fest A Success First, Bruce Mallatratt, professional drummer, came to Rockingham County. Then with the backing of the Rockingham County Arts Council, the City of Eden Tourism and Special Events and others, Mallatratt organized the first Eden Jazz Fest! In October, regional musicians, jazz fans and vendors heated up the day at Freedom Park on the first bone-chilling day of 2011. Curtis Fuller, the only trombone player to ever record with John Coltrane, thrilled the crowd. He'd recorded albums on four labels and played with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Jazz fans knew that he also played with Dizzy Gillespie and Count Basie bands. What a legendary artist playing and instructing in our midst! The show ran from noon until 8:30pm inspite of the cold. Headliners included the Bob Sanger Trio with Veronica Jones as soloist. Kevin Lewis directed the 16-piece Martinsville High School Jazz Band. Rockingham County sweetheart, Andrea Templon & Friends added variety. Rob Towers, regional outstanding trombonist, directed his alumni North Carolina Central University Jazz Group. Greensboro's Roberto Orihuela and soloist changed the tempo with vibes and the Latin touch. Bruce Mallatratt's Real Jazz spotlighted the jazz renown trombonist, Curtis Fuller. The sides included Andres Shalito, guitar; Steve Haines, bass; Chris Hankins, sax and Mallatratt on drums. Then the music continued at Santana's Restaurant. Raffles prizes from Belk's of Eden and AC Furniture and donations help support the FEST'S effort to raise scholarship funds for students could not afford private music instruction.

The Road My name is Ken White and this is my column. In it I want to get you to get off your couch and on the road to a healthier you. The first thing I want you to do is remove the words diet and exercise from your vocabulary. The food that you eat and some kind of daily movement have to be part of our lifestyle, they cannot be something that are added to what you already do they have to be something that happens without thought. Bake your chicken don’t fry it, balsamic vinegar as a
dressing not Ranch, park at the far end of the parking lot not the front door. These everyday habits can give you a great start to a healthy you. Think of your life as a Merry-Go- Round. It goes round and round with lots of pretty lights, lots of TV ads selling you 10 minutes abs and don’t forget the carnival food. The problem with the Merry -Go-Round is it doesn’t take you anyplace except back around to where you started, more pretty lights, more ads

telling you you need six packs abs to be happy and even more carnival food. The truth is you are not going to get White rock hard abs in 10 minutes, six pack abs are not the key to happiness and here’s a biggie deep-fried butter is bad for you. Now get off the Merry-GoRound and choose a healthy road. The Road is different than the Merry-Go-Round because it requires that you move yourself. It can be walking, swimming, weight lifting, biking, just as long as whatever you are doing requires your effort to do it. The Road does have hills and curves that you cannot see around. Around those curves are more Merry-Go-Rounds with more ads selling you shortcuts. You have to find something that gives you the strength to walk past the lights and stay on the road. The Road is long, in fact its life long. What got me on the Road is I am now the same age my father was when he had his first heart attack. There are days that it would be easier if I did not go to the Y and there are days where I justify what I eat because I swam the night before but that is part of The Road. Only you can find your motivation to change. I am calling this column The Road because I want you to join me on my journey. You see, The Road has good exits as well as those Merry-Go Rounds. This month I am taking a new exit. On Nov 12th I am running the Danville Half-Marathon. This exit has taken a summer of runs to get to and I am still worried about the outcome but at least I am running it and I know I can finish it. The outcome of the Road doesn’t happen overnight so come join me each month.

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life Continued from Page 23 Rockingham’s DRC is located at the new Wentworth Courthouse within the Rockingham County Justice Center Complex at 170 NC 65. The other two members of the DRC team are Case Manager Alicia Ross and newly appointed Pre-Trial Release Case Manager Ashley Hickman. Ross has over 20 years of experience in outreach programs and exemplifies the meaning of a social service ambassador. Holliday gave high accolades by saying, “Alicia has the ability to establish a rapport with anyone and balances discipline and benevolence when managing her clientele.” Housed under the DRC is the Pre-Trial Release program which offers an alternative to incarceration by reducing the overcrowded jail population. The Pre-Trial Release program also creates a significant cost reduction for the state and local government, as well as reserving jail and prison space for repeat and violent offenders. The program’s goals are to ensure the defendants’ appearance at set court dates, follow release protocols, and not commit any crimes or engage in illegal activity. These goals are achieved through the use of an electronic house arrest monitoring system, daily call in’s, and unannounced home visits. Hickman was selected due to experience and training as a correctional officer according to Holliday: “Ashley treats defendants without prejudice and shows compassion while they are awaiting disposition of their cases, yet also ensures they follow the rules to a tee.” Holliday was recently promoted from her last position as PreTrial Case Manager. She previously served 10 years with the St. Cloud Police Department in St. Cloud, Florida where she retired as a Patrol Captain. She was a Community Outreach Officer; School Resource Officer; Training Coordinator; Professional Standards Officer; and supervised the Patrol, K-9, Hostage Negotiations, Mounted Patrol, Criminal Investigations and Evidence Units. In addition to her law enforcement career, Holliday was an instructor at the Osceola County Criminal Justice Center. Holliday acknowledged her love of influencing positive change for others convinced her to apply for the director’s position: “The criminal justice system as an operation is well defined and executed, however sometimes in the course of ‘doing business,’ enough time is not allocated to understand a defendants’ life history and needs. If we do not do a good job of determining what created defendants’ situations, how will we be able to properly and effectively change their future outcomes? Our approach is to support offenders and defendants in this judicial process while ensuring their compliance and supervision is strictly monitored.” Rockingham County Director of Administration Adam Lindsay oversees the program and explained: "Both programs rely on the input and support of the local criminal justice community. An advisory board with leadership from local attorneys, a judge, the District Attorney's Office, the Sheriff's Office, and other agencies meet regularly to discuss the direction and successes of the programs. Rockingham County proactively measures impact and success with specific focus on compliance to the restrictions established by judges before an inmate is allowed to go on house arrest."

County student art makes it to NC Museum of Art WENTWORTH – Forty-two United States art students were selected by jury to have their self-portraits exhibited in the North Carolina Museum of Art in tandem with an October-January exhibition of works by Rembrandt, a fifteenth century Dutch master whose self-portraits have made his face one of the most recognizable in the art world. Alex Sharp is among the 42 students accepted into the exhibit. It was the first time his art had been proSelf Portrait fessionally critiqued. Sharp Sharp is a fine arts student at Rockingham Community College. His self-portrait is a photograph. In his work, he has looked to the old masters; studying their use of light, expressions, style. He has an affinity for light and dark, shadows and depth, expressions and feelings. Sharp says in his artist’s statement, “This Self Portrait is a re-visitation of my inner connection with Christ and my Faith, an internal battle for what is good and what is evil, in the end, all I can know for sure is that no matter what happens in my life “Jesus Loves Me” Always drawn to the human form, Sharp endeavored to replicate on canvas the exact image in his head but usually failed.

Investing In Rockingham County’s Quality of Life Continued from Page 24 phy class offered in spring 2010 opened the door, allowing him to create art the way he had always envisioned. It gave him more control and through modern technology, opened up the possibility to emulate and then manipulate artistic techniques. His current interest is bringing the old world style of art with its use of Christian themes into the modern world of photography. In his self-portrait, Sharp used a relatively inexpensive digital SLR camera mounted on a tripod and a remote shutter release. He stood in his home, draped, with natural light from an open doorway hitting his face. His portraits, he says, are not just photos but a representation of how the individual sees the world. In his own, he sees vulnerability. “I am honored to have been chosen; blessed,” said Sharp. “I’ve struggled with how to get my art out and now it’s coming out in a bigger way than I ever imagined.”
Rockingham County Announces New Director of Financial Services WENTWORTH, NC (Oct. 22, 2011) – Rockingham County Government has a new Director of Financial Services, Patricia Galloway. Effective Monday, Nov. 28, Galloway will permanently replace Assistant County Manager/Director of Financial Services Michael W. Apple, who retired in September with 28 years of service. The Rockingham County Board of Commissioners appointed Galloway Kelly P. Burton to lead this area on an interim basis following Apple’s retirement. Burton will return to her previous role as Deputy Finance Officer upon Galloway’s arrival as the county’s chief financial officer. Galloway will be responsible for leading and supervising Financial Services, maintaining the accounting system, controlling expenditures, managing cash and other assets, and preparing financial reports. Interim County Manager Ben Neal earlier explained a national search had been launched to hopefully fill this post permanently before or by the end of the calendar year. Neal looks forward to Galloway joining Rockingham County Government because, “She has a degree in business, she’s a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), and she brings years of experience in local government and financial services.” Galloway is also looking forward to her new role with Rockingham County Government. “I am originally from Belews Creek, NC,” she said, “and I am very excited to have the opportunity to get closer to family, and to be able to continue working in governmental finance, a field of work that I have truly enjoyed for over 20 years.” For the past five years, Galloway has held the position of Finance Director for the Town of Oak Island, NC, where she assisted in issuing its first Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and submitting it for the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) award program. In addition to financial reporting, she has worked with management on multiple capital projects that utilized a variety of financing methods. She worked for 12 years at Brunswick County, NC, beginning as the Grants Manager and then moving up to Assistant Finance Director, and finally Interim Finance Director. She spent six years with a CPA firm in Southport, NC, and while employed there obtained her CPA license. Being assigned to municipal, county, and non-profit audits during those years allowed her to develop the knowledge and skills to move into local government finance and to concentrate her career in this field of accounting. Galloway has a Business Administration degree from Wingate University with an emphasis in Accounting. She is married and has three children, an 11-year-old son and twin 8-year-old daughters.

¶ PAGE 28 EDEN’S OWN / COUNTY STAR, NOVEMBER 2011 Poem for Amanda In your blog you shared your life lessons, and the wisdom you gained as well, How you faced each hurdle you met with, Even though some were hard for you to tell. You shared with us your happiness, Your love in being a Mother, And the memories you made with Lydia Can never be replaced by another.
We'll see your smile in the twinkle of the stars, Feel your warmth by the rays of the sun, Your eyes will shine by the glow of the moon, And feel your touch by the breeze as we run.
We promise to keep you life more than a memory, We'll spread all the things that you taught, And we'll always be thankful we knew you And shared all the joy that you brought For all who love you dearly We will suffer, oh the most, And for those who had a hand in it Will pay daily their own cost. Your precious smile so warming, And your face that always glowed, The special bond of friendship And you heart as pure as gold, Are just only a few of your blessings we'll miss As your journey travels onward, While we remain here on this earth And struggle to go forward.
Do as I say, not as I do, Never ever settle for less, Solve each problem one at a time, Always strive to be your best. Stick to your goals, Press toward your dreams, Look for the bright side in all. Smile often Think of those you love and know they love you too Yes that's what you'd say to us And we'd say back to you, Always remember we love you And we are proud of you And yes, our Dear Amanda we will always remember you So for now: So long our dear Angel, May you now rest in peace, Until we meet again Your memories we'll keep.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, dedicated to increasing awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer, celebrating the lives of the many women who survived, and remembering those lost. Rockingham County Department of Public Health will be putting the spotlight on breast cancer throughout the month. Several outreach efforts have been made to heighten awareness of the importance of early detection and general breast health, in addition to promoting services available through the health department for eligible participants. Breast cancer remains the most frequently occurring cancer in women and is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths of women in North Carolina, but early diagnosis can make a difference. Ninety-six percent of women who find and treat breast cancer early will be cancer-free after five years. Rockingham County Department of Public Health encourages all women to take charge of their health by going for regular breast screenings. Breast screenings check a woman’s breasts for cancer before noticeable signs or symptoms are present. There are three main tests used to screen for breast cancer. • Breast self-exam is when you check your own breasts for lumps, swelling, changes in size or shape of the breast, and any other changes in the breast or underarm. • Clinical breast exam is a breast exam by a doctor or nurse, who uses his or her hands to carefully feel for lumps or other changes in the entire breast area. • Mammogram is an X-ray of the breast. Mammograms are the best method to detect breast cancer early when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause other symptoms. We urge every woman to talk with her healthcare provider about which screening is right for you. Rockingham County Department of Public Health offers free breast screenings, education and referral services to eligible women through the NC Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP). Funding provided by Susan G. Komen for the Cure®Triad Affiliate through Morehead Memorial Hospital Foundation, on behalf of the Rockingham County Healthcare Alliance has allowed even more individuals to receive needed services. To learn more about the NC BCCCP, visit www.bcccp.ncdhhs.gov or call 919-7075300. You can also contact Mrs. Anne Rodgers at Rockingham County Department of Public Health at 336-342-8141 for more information.
Berger, Pyrtle Selected To Project Safe Rockingham Posts Project SAFE Rockingham County (PSRC), a collaboration between local, state and federal law enforcement, probation, prosecutors and community leaders, recently held the first meeting of their Advisory Board. Rockingham County District Attorney Phil Berger, Jr. was elected Chair and Eden Police Chief Reece Pyrtle was elected Vice-Chair. “Project SAFE Rockingham County gives us another tool to combat gangs, violent crime, and gun-violence in Rockingham County.” Berger said. “Ultimately, offenders are given a choice: change you behavior or face stiff consequences.” PSRC uses notifications, or call ins, to inform offenders, face to face, that there are alternatives to violence, and that there are members of the community who will assist them in staying crime free. “This focused deterrence model has been successful across the country,” Pyrtle said. “While results will not be seen overnight, this strategy will change lives. We are concentrating our combined efforts in prevention, intervention, and suppression on the small percentage of the population that is driving violence in our country. The group has several meetings set over the coming weeks, with the first call in slated for November.

For the Fun of It... MY FAVORITE ANIMAL: Our teacher asked us what our favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken.." She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else in the class laughed. My parents told me to always be truthful and honest, and I am. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office.I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, just like she'd asked the other children. So I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal's office again. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it. Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most. I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where I am now...
Creating While creating women, God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. And then He made the earth round. Light Bulb Q: How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb? A: Only one, but the light bulb has to WANT to change. Be Careful A mother was trying to impress upon her children the need for safety while playing. “You remember our neighbor Barry,” she said somberly. “He was riding his roller skates and wasn’t paying attention where he was going. He hit a tree and ended up in the hospital, and now his right leg’s paralyzed. He’ll never skate again.” Little Jeannie was suddenly quite interested. “So what became of his skates?” Arguing Two children were shouting at each other and were at the point of blows when Mom entered the playroom. “You two are always arguing,” she scolded. “You need to learn to agree on things.” “We do agree,” said one. “Yeah,” snarled the other. “We both agree we want the box of crayons right now!”
While conducting some business at the Court House, I overheard a lady, who had been arrested for assaulting a Mammogram Technician, say, "Your Honor, I'm guilty but.....there were extenuating circumstances." The female Judge said, sarcastically, "I'd certainly like to hear those extenuating circumstances." I did too so, I listened as the lady told her story. "Your Honor, I had a mammogram appointment, which I actually kept. I was met by this perky little clipboard carrier smiling from Ear to ear and she tilted her head to one side and crooned, "Hi! I'm Belinda! All I need you to do is step into this room right here, strip to the waist, then slip on this gown. Everything clear?" I'm thinking, "Belinda, try decaf. This ain't rocket science." Belinda then skipped away to prepare the chamber of horrors. With the right side finished, Belinda flipped me (literally) to the left and said, "Hmmmm. Can you stand on your tippy toes and lean in a tad so we can get everything?" Fine, I answered. I was freezing, bruised, and out of air, so why not use the remaining circulation in my legs and neck to finish me off? My body was in a holding pattern that defied gravity (with a paticular tender part of my anatomy between those two 4 inch pieces of square glass) when I heard and felt a zap! Complete darkness, the power was off! Belinda said, "Uh-oh, maintenance is working, bet they hit a snag." Then she headed for the door. "Excuse me! You're not leaving me in this vise alone are you?" I shouted. Belinda kept going and said, "Oh, you fussy puppy...the door's wide open so you'll have the emergency hall lights. I'll be right back." Before I could shout NOOOO! She disappeared. And that's exactly how Bubba and Earl, "maintenance men Extraordinaire" found me...half-naked with part of me dangling from the Jaws of Life and the other part smashed between glass! After exchanging a polite Hi, how's it going type greeting, Bubba (or possibly Earl) asked, to my utter disbelief, if I knew the power was off. Trying to disguise my hysteria, I replied with as much calmness as possible, "Uh, yes, I did but thanks anyway." "OK, you take care now" Bubba replied and waved good-bye as though I'd been standing in the line at the grocery store. Two hours later, Belinda breezes in wearing a sheepish grin. Making no attempt to suppress her amusement, she said, "Oh I am sooo sorry! The power came back on and I totally forgot about you! And silly me, I went to lunch. Are we upset?" And that, Your Honor, is exactly how her head ended up between the clamps...." The judge could hardly contain her laughter as she said "Case Dismissed!

Leaf season has begun By Darren Gatewood, Street Superintendent
The City of Eden’s leaf collection will continue through March 2. Loose-leaf collection is just as the name implies – only unbagged leaves will be collected. There are several things you must do to make sure your leaves get picked up: Do not bag your leaves. Have them at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. Do not place leaves in the traveled portion of the roadway where traffic would be impeded. Pile them away from any objects such as parked cars, low-hanging
City’s automated water meter installation begins this month By Tammie McMichael, Director of Finance

tree limbs, catch basins and drainpipes. Do not put leaves in the actual ditch, which could cause flooding. Sticks, rocks, bricks and other such objects should be kept out of the leaves for pickup as they delay the collection process and can cause severe damage to the collection equipment. For more information regarding leaf collection, call my office at 627-7783, ext. 102 or the Department of Environmental Services, at 623-2110, option 4.
readings, will reduce personnel and operational costs, and will promote conservation. A transmitter will be placed inside the meter box and connected to the meter by a thin wire. The readings from the transmitter will be collected by a mobile reader driving by in a vehicle. The City will contract with a licensed general contractor for the water meter installation. Unless there are special circumstances, you do not have to be at the property when service work is done. Water will be shut off for a brief period of time if a new water meter must be installed. The contractor’s personnel will knock at your door prior to cutting the water off. You may notice a slight discoloration in the water or noise as air in the line passes through plumbing fixtures. This is normal and will clear up after water is run for a few minutes. The installers will run an outside faucet for a few minutes if they see one to help eliminate this problem for customers. Also, if you have any plants, bushes, landscaping or obstacles blocking the water meter box, please remove them as soon as possible. If you experience any problems please call the City at 6232110, option 1. In addition, for any billing problems or requests for other services provided by the City, please call our Customer Service office at 623-2110, option 1.

Forever Homes for 24 Dogs & Five Cats in Rockingham County There are many more happy families with new members in Rockingham County thanks to the Rockingham County Animal Shelter, PetSence, Deb Sterling, Joan Stembridge and the Animal Protection Society. Miss Deb Sterling of the Rockingham County Pet Shelter said, “I can not tell you how thrilled I am over the success of the PetSense event! We had a total of 29 for our shelter. GM Cathie Basil did a fantastic job putting the event together for her PetSense location. There were even lizards and snakes adopted! One of the pups placed into loving hands by my team had been at the shelter for four months!” This was the first annual event for PetSense and by far the biggest adoption event that the shelter has been involved in and the high total the Reidsville store achieved of 46 adoptions made the Reidsville location number one in the USA for their company. In addition, PetSense will give every group who participated in this event a $100 donation, which will be used for sponsoring other adoptions. Out of the 46 adopted, 24 dogs and 5 cats were from the Rockingham County shelter itself, each finding new loving homes during the early October adoption fair, with special thanks going to the Animal Protection Society who sponsored animals so that their adoption price would be lower for this event. “I would like to thank the people who volunteered their time to help find these Rockingham County animals forever homes. The Reidsville PetSense was number one in the nation for PetSense in adoptions during this weekend event,” said Kevin Baughn, Director of the Rockingham County Animal Shelter located at 250 Cherokee Camp Rd., Reidsville, NC, in the Wentworth community. “People worked hard to find forever homes for Rockingham County animals … we had 24 dogs and five cats adopted during the Oct. 1-2 adoption fair,” Baughn explained. “I would like to thank Deb Sterling, Joan Stembridge, Cathie Basil with Petsense, and the Animal Protection Society for working with the Rockingham

CITIZENS HAVE CASH OR STOCKS OWED TO THEM
Rep. Bert Jones would like you to watch in the next Eden’s Own Journal for a continued listing of Rockingham County citizens who have cash or stocks waiting for them with the state. The state does not put forth an extensive effort to find these persons or businesses. The names will be listed with the last known town they were located in. Contact the call center at (919) 508-1000 Unfortunately, there is not a toll free number available. In most cases, individuals have moved, so there would need to be proof of the former address, as well as the social security number. In the case of a death , there would need to be a death certificate and a form from the clerk of court. For stocks, individuals will be sent a form to complete. More names will follow monthly.

Third - Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved. Fourth - When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra. Fifth - You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks. Sixth - I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top. Seventh - One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it's such a nice change from being young. Eighth - One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been. Ninth - Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable. Tenth - Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf. And, finally - If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old.

Students learn of Potential Through Vocational Rehabilitation A special program and luncheon was held in October for students in all four county high schools’ Occupational Course of Study programs. Approximately 30 students joined the Vocational Rehab staff to enjoy a program in honor of October being “National Disability Employment

dent living services, assistive technology, client assistance programs and disability determination services. Ellis said that Vocational Rehab helps with the transition from school to work for these students. Angela Davis, of Kerr-Tar Regulatory Council of Governments, was guest speaker and became a voice of motivation for the students as she “pushed them to be better than they were before”. “Knowledge is power,” she noted and told the students that there were many famous people in history that were labeled unteachable yet went on to become some of the most intelligent inventors and personalities of history; one example being Thomas Edison. In school the young Edison's
Volunteers are needed to assist us at the free tax preparation site at the Gardenof Eden Senior Center in Eden. We are part of the VITA program sponsored by the IRS, preparing taxes free for low incomes and senior citizens including e-filing them. We do everything except pay any tax they may owe. Volunteers will be trained with a course supplied by the IRS. Bilingual preparers are expecially needed. We will be doing taxes two days a week starting the end of January through April 15th. Actual days and times have not been determined yet but will depend on the available volunteers. We can save clients a lot of money over what they would have to pay a paid preparer. Call Jim Barko at 623-7651 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested
mind often wandered, and his teacher, called him "addled". This ended Edison's three months of official schooling, from then on his mother home schooled him. Edison also developed hearing problems at an early age. He later sold vegetables to supplement his income. This began Edison's long streak of entrepreneurial ventures as he discovered his talents as a businessman. These talents eventually led him to found 14 companies, including General Electric. Edison eventually became an unrivaled American inventor, scientist, and businessman, developing many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric
light bulb. He is credited with creating the world’s first industrial research laboratory, and was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production. Edison is the fourth most prolific inventor in history, holding 1,093 US patents in his name, as well as many patents in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. He is credited with numerous inventions that contributed to mass communication and, in particular, telecommunications. Not so bad for a student called “addled” by his teacher.
