On Wednesday, July 27, 2011, a delegation of 14 members of the Eden All-America City Award winning team travelled to the state capital to be recognized by the NC Senate.

Eden and Fayetteville received their awards on June 17th in Kansas City, MO
where the competition was held. “We are proud that the General Assembly recognizes our achievement,” stated Mayor John Grogan of Eden and one of the participants in the Eden delegation that won the award.

Letters to the Editor Letter to the Citizens of Rockingham County August 19, 2011, Fellow Citizens, Each of us as members of the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners took a solemn vow to represent and responsibly lead our county. We are the official policy making body of Rockingham County and must always stay within the legal confines of the law. This is why we are sharing the following facts regarding the landfill issue in our county: 1. We, as your elected County Commissioners, are authorized and will act in the best interest of Rockingham County, but we must also follow the requirements of the law or that authority may be taken away from us by a court. 2. A State Statute requires the applicant to obtain a franchise from the County Commissioners. This means that a private landfill must have both a local zoning approval and a franchise approval before applying for a state permit. 3. There is a process that must be followed. But remember, Commissioner approval is required for both zoning and a franchise. 4. Rockingham County has a zoning ordinance which requires a special use permit. 5. The special use permit must be first heard by the Planning Board and then by the County Commissioners. 6. The County is not creating a special use permit ordinance for the landfill applicant. 7. The applicant has applied for a special use permit but has not yet asked the County Commissioners for a franchise. 8. By law, a public hearing is required for both a franchise and a special use permit. We hope this information will provide clarity regarding why we must wait until the formal application process before expressing any opinion on this matter. To do otherwise might jeopardize the legal outcome of the final decision. Thank you for your support as we continue to partner with you to promote a safe and caring environment, educational excellence, economic opportunity, and a high quality of life. Thank you and God bless Rockingham County, James E. Kallam, Chairman, Rockingham County Board of Commissioners Commissioners' Response To Landfill Issue As Chairman of the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners, I welcome ways in which to effectively communicate with our local citizenry. We hope we are building a stronger community where people in Rockingham County understand that we all live in this county together. My family lives in this county, you live in this county, and we have many of the same goals and desires. More than anything else, we as your County Board of Commissioners want to do the right thing, we want to be fair, we want to be equitable, and we want to make a just decision on this issue. Based upon the facts of the case, we will decide what is good and what is best for Rockingham County.” James E. Kallam, Chairman “The only thing at this point that I can say is that I’ll do what is right and what is lawful for the best interests of the citizens and the best interests of Rockingham County.” W. Keith Mabe, Vice-Chairman “We are facing a quasi-judicial issue. My concern is for our citizens to be aware of this. The bottom line is citizen awareness like what you learn from a Citizens Academy … for if you’re better informed, you can better perform. Open and free government allows us to research and study the facts and then discuss and dialogue. This prevents people being uninformed and misinformed.” Harold A. Bass, Sr.
RCC selects new seal After soliciting ideas from anyone and everyone for a new Rockingham Community College seal, a submission by Mary Gomez was chosen by a committee of seven. “The existing RCC college seal was adopted in 1966,” said RCC President, Dr. Michael Helmick. “A seal is used for official college documents and while the original RCC design has served the college well for 45 years, I felt a redesign could carry us forward for the next 45 years.” Forty drawings were submitted for the committee to review.
While under review, the identities of the design creators were not revealed. While the original design incorporated elements reflective of the 1960s, Gomez’ design incorporates the college mascot (an eagle) with clean, modern graphic elements. “I'm honored to have had the opportunity to work on a new design for the college seal,” said Gomez, “and I'm proud that my design will be representative of RCC in the years to come.” A Greensboro resident and employee in the James Library at RCC, Gomez will be awarded $1,000 for her design.

After the vote, the Eden delegation met with Senator in his office.

how the Education Foundation and Student Health Centers had helped them gain the resources to enter higher education or receive health care in their time of need. The Student Health Centers had been particularly effective in providing counseling to students in their times of crisis. At the July 2011 Eden City Council meeting, Mayor Grogan honored the sponsors who made the trip to Kansas City possible. He also declared September “Eden All-America City Month.” The award will be part of the annual Eden RiverFest on September 16th and 17th.

The City of Eden recently completed the revamping of its web site to make it easier to navigate for its current and prospective citizens, and to provide improved information about our community. The City employed E-Gov Link to facilitate the upgrade, an organization that had provided other city services for several years. In 2006, the City began using E-Gov Basics tool as a way to allow the public access to information as well as giving citizens a way to request help or
matically be used for new pages. This makes it easy for editors to create new pages and assures consistency throughout the site. It also benefits the public. “The new website will be easier for citizens to navigate and also contains a search feature to allow the public to easily find what they are looking for on the website,” stated Thompson. The Community Link Portal gives citizens the most up to date information all in one location. It contains breaking news, upcom-
Once again our volunteers have agreed to work on the Freedom Park “Haunted Trail”. This year the dates will be Fri. & Sat., Oct. 7th & 8, 14 & 15, 21 & 22 and 28 & 29. Admission is $5.00 pp except on the 28th and 29th when all children aged 12 & under will be allowed in for $2. Expect to wait in line as only so many are allowed in at a time. All proceeds from the “Trail” go to help fund the youth programs for the Eden Parks & Recreation Department. Anyone wishing to donate can contact the Parks & Rec office at 623-7789 Ext. 3026.

The City began with the Citizen Request Management feature through which citizens can ask questions, make suggestions, request information, make a complaint or request a service at their own convenience after hours. If citizens make a request after hours, the staff will have the request on their desks the next morning. The City also began with a community calendar and a centralized document repository in Microsoft folder style with content search feature to make it easy to find the desired document. Another feature added in 2006 was the ability for citizens to pay their utility bill online. Recently, the City began considering a way to upgrade its existing website and found that E-Gov Link also provided that feature. After choosing a template, City Clerk Sheralene Thompson began placing all information into the newly designed website. The templates allow standard features to auto-
ing events, new documents, and a feature called Rumor Mill where you can get special attention to City positions or controversial issues by posting the questions (and answers) in a special place. The web site upgrade is also in response to the recent Competitiveness Process conducted in Rockingham County by the UNC School of Government. One of the findings of the process was the need for updated information on municipal, county and tourism web sites. So much information gathered by prospective businesses and residents is completed on line that it is critical for web sites to be attractive, interactive, and as accurate as possible. In the digital age, web sites are a community’s welcome center. It is critical to make a positive first impression for a community to get a second look. For more information on the revamped web site, contact Sheralene Thompson at 336-6232110.

Surgical technology students pinned during ceremony WENTWORTH – Thirteen Rockingham Community College surgical technology students – Rendi Bowden, Stacy Downing (class treasurer), Sheila Farmer, Brittany Fulmer (class secretary), Levette Hampton, David Medlin (class president), Martika Patterson, Tonya Plummer, James Spencer, Travis Surles, Zack Tomerlin, Emily Watkins, Ann Marie Wilson (class vice president) – received their surgical technology pins during a July 25 evening ceremony. The students will graduate July 29. Singled out for special awards were Brittany Fulmer, Surgical Technology Faculty Award; Travis Surles, Surgical Technology Peer Award; and Ann
Marie Wilson, RCC Health Sciences Student Award. Wilson received a 100 on her final exam. RCC Division of Health Sciences Dean, Tom Harding, noted that there is a severe shortage of practitioners in all healthcare fields, including surgical technology. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, by 2018 the country will need 24,000 more surgical technologists than there are today; a 25 percent increase. Guest speaker, Joyce Jones, director of surgical services at Alamance Regional Hospital, hires individuals in the surgical services field. Joyce said, “We look for people who are dedicated to what they are doing and see their field as a calling.”
Joyce said the students from Rockingham Community College are well trained and well prepared which makes them valuable in the workforce. Class president and spokesperson, David Medlin thanked the faculty, staff, administration and trustees for their support and to his classmates said, “We can look forward to the future with great expectation and anticipation.”

Mohawk extends support to community For Mohawk Industries, sustainability is not just a buzzword. It is part of the Company’s everyday business practices to make a better world for everyone: people, the community and the environment. This includes partnering with organizations that have similar goals in sustainability. This month, Mohawk continued its commitment to the community of Eden, N.C., and the environment by presenting a check for $2,500 through the Mohawk Foundation to the Dan River Basin Association, a nonprofit organization focused on preserving natural resources and waterways in sixteen counties in North Carolina and Virginia. “Mohawk is a green company, so it makes sense that we would partner with an environmentally-friendly organization like the Dan River Basin Association,” said Megan Arrington, Human Resources Manager at the Karastan facility in Eden, North Carolina. “Our community relies on their good work each year to preserve the natural beauty in our area.” The Dan River Basin focuses on several key environmental initiatives. From creating and preserving walking and hiking trails to education programs where children can learn about organisms living in the area waterways, and even stewardship days for companies to volunteer their time by cleaning up the environment, the Dan River Basin Association is committed to making the community a better place for everyone. “I am proud and honored to be able to partner with a green company such as Mohawk,” said Tiffany Haworth, Executive Director of DRBA. “We partner with many companies who are interested in sustainability, but, with Mohawk, we know that they share our commitment to the

Health Tips Providing Solutions For Better Heath Oh, My Aching Joints! With middle age often comes an all too familiar visitor. Marked by the gradual loss of cartilage, osteoarthritis can show up in many joints – from keyboard-typing fingers to tennis-twisting knees. Over time, it can cause swollen, aching, gnarled joints – and put a major crimp in your style! For mild pain that comes and goes, rest – and maybe cold or heat – may be all you need. Then, over-the-counter (OTC) acetaminophen (such as Tylenol or Excedrin) or aspirin every four hours may relieve the kind of pain that shows up after an ambitious springcleaning or daylong tug o' war with some particularly stubborn weeds. When pain lasts longer, OTC nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories other than aspirin may do the trick. These work by not only decreasing pain, but also inflammation. Examples include ibuprofen such as Motrin or Advil, or naproxen such as Aleve or Naprosyn. Check the package for dosing instructions. For quick relief affecting just a few joints, topical medications may be the way to go. These are absorbed through the skin. They come as sprays, or creams or gels you rub in, or patches that stick to the skin. They're most effective for joints that are close to the skin's surface. You may be most familiar with topical medications containing salicylates, which is found in aspirin – think BENGAY, Aspercreme, or Flexall. Sometimes products with menthol (ArthriCare, Icy Hot, Therapeutic Mineral Ice) also work to override pain sensations with heat or cold. But, did you know that capsaicin, a substance found in chili peppers, is also sometimes used for arthritis pain? Olé! It works by depleting a chemical in nerve cells, thereby interrupting pain messages. Products include Zostrix and Capzasin-P. Do these products work? Well, some people say they help, but scientists note that the research only reports a mild benefit. Might be worth a try. Do take a few precautions, however. For example, be sure to wash your hands after applying capsaicin and avoid touching your eyes. If you've ever accidentally done this after chopping hot chili peppers, you know what I mean! Also avoid using any of these products on broken or irritated skin, or with a heating pad or bandage. If you know you're allergic to aspirin or you're taking blood thinners, check with your doctor before using products containing salicylates. Another topical option is a Lidocaine patch (Lidoderm). These are approved for shingles, but are sometimes also used to numb the pain of osteoarthritis for 12 hours at a time. NSAID pills can be tough on the stomach, so you might want to give topical NSAID creams or gels a try. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a prescription NSAID gel containing diclofenac (Voltaren) for osteoarthritis in hands, wrists, elbows, feet, ankles, or knees. A patch is also available. One last thought is to take a high-dose of fish oil. The pure omega-3 fatty acid is the best choice. A dose of 4000 mg. daily, divided into two doses, seems to give good anti-inflammatory and pain relief after 2 weeks. Also, it’s heart healthy! If these steps don't manage your symptoms, or if you find yourself using OTC medications very often, be sure to have a talk with your doctor. Then, feel free to stop by with any questions you have for me. Eden Drug is a full service, family owned pharmacy serving the individual needs of our patients.

Participants from the Rockingham County Migrant Education Program completed the Chef and the Child program.
Youth Graduate from “The Chef and The Child” Program The Chef and The Child Food and Nutrition Education Program was held in Rockingham County on July 25-28, 2011. The program was made possible through a partnership with the 4-H department of the Rockingham County Cooperative Extension Office, Lowes Food, Triad Chapter of the American Culinary Federation and Rockingham County Migrant Education Program. 12 migrant children and one helper were given the daily opportunity for hands-on food preparation experience. Extension Agent Morgan Maness and volunteer Chef Don McMillan taught the participants about nutrition, kitchen safety, and cooking! They made quesadillas, taco soup and mango dessert to name a few recipes. At the end of the week the participants received a goodie bag with all the recipes that they had made throughout the week so they could go home and continue their newfound cooking skills. As a result of attending this program, the youth gain a better understanding of what they need to eat to be healthy and how to prepare simple, yet nutritious foods at their homes.
Robert King, Sam Boone, Lorrie Norwood, Lydia Ryan, Caleb Graves, Damien Percell, Ricky Abbott and Jose Jaramillo attended NC 4-H Congress in Raleigh.
Rockingham County 4-Hers Attend NC 4-H Congress Eight Rockingham County 4-H youth attended NC 4-H Congress in Raleigh at NCSU on July 18-21, 2011. Approximately 500 youth, staff and volunteers from around the state attended Congress. Congress is a four day conference focused on leadership and community service in our youth. 4-Hers heard from a variety of speakers including 4-H alumni, a Holocaust survivor and many more. They youth completed a community service project that will help many people in NC; they bagged thousands of pounds of rice to be given to the hungry. Youth also had a lot of social, fun time with their new friends from other counties across NC. From Rockingham County there were eight youth attending representing three 4-H clubs. The youth were Lorrie Norwood, Lydia Ryan, Sam Boone, Ricky Abbott, Caleb Graves, Jose Jaramillo, Damien Percell and Robert King. Among Congress activities are contests designed to test 4-Hers’ knowledge of a range of subjects. Rockingham County had a 4-Her win gold in her presentation category. Lorrie Norwood won gold with her presentation on Electromagnets in the 14-18 year old category of Electricity. Our Rockingham County 4-H youth represented the county proudly and had a wonderful time!

“Freedom, Sacrifice, Memory” Civil War Exhibit at Rockingham County Library RALEIGH – Heroic tales and valiant feats are depicted in images that reflect North Carolina’s dedication to the war in the “Freedom, Sacrifice, Memory: Civil War Sesquicentennial Photography Exhibit” ). Rockingham County Public Library will host the exhibit from Sept. 1-28, sharing images and stories that capture the history and people of the Civil War (1861-1865). “The Civil War was the first war widely covered with photography,” explains Deputy Secretary Dr. Jeffrey Crow of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources. “The ‘Freedom, Sacrifice, Memory’ exhibit provides images of historic figures, artifacts, and documents that brought the reality of the war from the battlefront to the home front, then and now.” The N.C. Department of Cultural Resources will display 24 images from the State Archives ( archives.ncdcr.gov), the N.C. Museum of History ( ncmuseumofhistory.org) and State Historic Sites ( nchistoricsites.org). Between April 2011 and spring 2013, 50 libraries will showcase “Freedom, Sacrifice, Memory” offering visuals that present gallant women, African American triumph and the perseverance of Confederate soldiers. A notebook will accompany the exhibit with further information and seeking viewer comments. One of the images portrays a poignant letter from Colonel Isaac E. Avery that embodies the courage and passion of the Confederate forces. Born Dec. 20, 1828, in Burke County, Avery served in the 6th NC Troops and

Pillowcases made with love There is no scene more heart wrenching than a child lying sick in the hospital. And Judy Wood of Eden made note of that when a friend recently lost her child. Seeing how Brenner Children’s Hospital in Winston-Salem took such loving care of this child and others, Judy wanted to help in whatever way she could. Judy Wood of Eden, came up with a small idea that grew into a monumental undertaking, and all in wanting to help children feel more comfortable during these trying times. Wood herself has been confined to a wheel chair since 2000 due to an inoperable blood clot on her spine. She knows that a stay in the hospital can be depressing at best. She thought if the children had the beautiful pillowcases that the carry back home with them when the leave the hospital, it could brighten their outlook. She began with an idea, a few pieces of beautiful material, and a phone call to Brenner for the ok. She began to sew beautifully colored and uplifting pillowcases for the children who had to be hospitalized. She sewed with love and determination, and told a few friends what she was doing, who decided they wanted to contribute. And they told a few friends and so on. Someone got her in touch with Ann Fish who featured her in a newspaper article locally. After hearing of her project through this newspaper article, people who cared came out of the woodwork to help on the project, with donations of time, materials, thread, talents, and even money. “I was simply overwhelmed by the local support for this project,” Wood said. By mid August over 70 pillowcases had been delivered to Brenner and over 150 sit in her dining room waiting to be delivered. With some 4500 children going through the Brenner Children’s Hospital each year, the project will never run out of need. When Wendy Turner at Brenner mentioned another pro-

Then Bead Bags for the Beads of Courage and lap quilts came to mind. The project is growing every day. To keep this project going, Wood notes that there is an ongoing need for materials, thread, time and money. The delivery of the finished products to the hospital requires time and gas money. Anyone is urged to help, and give the gift that best suits his or her life. A group of women also meet at the Eden Rescue Squad on occasion to sew and have fellowship for the project. This special group of women just wants to reach out to others and help as they can, and they are always happy to welcome more to the group. Anyone interested in helping in any way should contact Wood at 627-3028. To learn more about Brenner and Beads of Courage, go to www.beadsofcourage.org or call Melissa Cardenas at 206987-6806.

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, Suite C 325.

Courageous: Honor Begins at Home It isn’t often the churches come together to encourage you to go see a movie. But there are exceptions. Courageous: Honor Begins at Home, is one of them. A movie that really hits home, according to corageousthemovie.com: Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they're quickly discovering that their standard is miss-
ing the mark. When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God ... and to their children? Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children. Protecting the
streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That's courageous. From the creators of Fireproof, Courageous will be in theaters September 30th across the nation. Writer Jim McBride has many other books, including one of the better known named Right of Passage. When you have enjoyed the movie, or even before, be sure to stop by Mitchell’s Drug on Morgan Road in Eden to see their wide selection of Courageous movie items. And be sure to visit courageousthemovie.com to learn more about this movie and the author’s other work , which is
designed to help you, your family, your church, and your community move toward whatever
next steps you feel called to take with COURAGEOUS.

Sheriff Page Appointed Chairman, NCSA at 89th Annual Traning Conference Sheriff Sam Page of Rockingham County recently attended the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association’s 89th Annual Training Conference held in Craven County, with other sheriffs and law enforcement professionals from across the State. Sheriff Page was appointed by his fellow Sheriffs as Chairman of the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association for the upcoming 2011-2012 year. Sheriff Page said, "Our Annual Training Conference allows North Carolina's sheriffs to discuss their experiences and learn from each other, as well as bring ourselves up-to-date on important law enforcement developments. North Carolina sheriffs have a complex role as constitutional officers leading law enforcement within their respective counties. Our duties often require that we be available to personnel and to the public continuously. My staff and I will use this knowledge to further serve and protect Rockingham County's citizens." "Sheriffs in every county of North Carolina are facing tremendous challenges in carrying out their responsibilities for law enforcement and the safety of our citizens; maintenance and operation of local jails; recruiting, training and maintaining talented personnel; working with domestic situations, child abuse cases, serving civil papers, tracking sex offenders in the state, issuing weapons permits, providing court security, and in many other areas," said Sheriff Page. Also in attendance were Governor Bev Perdue, Attorney General Roy Cooper, Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, State Auditor Beth Wood, Chief Justice Sarah Parker, Supreme Court of NC, Justice Paul Newby, Supreme Court of NC, Justice Bob Edmunds, Supreme Court of NC, Secretary Reuben Young, Department of Crime Control and Public Safety, Secretary Al Keller, Department of Correction, Scott Thomas, Chair, Governor’s Crime Commission Greg McLeod, Director, State Bureau of Investigation. At the Annual Training Conference, sheriffs discussed issues of interest to the Office of Sheriff, including updates on new changes to the law and procedures, as well as an update on the newly enacted State Budget by the 2011 General Assembly. Chris Fuller, an international leadership speaker and author of Iditarod Leadership Unleashing the Power of the Team, spoke on leadership development, effective team work and how to be and develop master leaders within a Sheriff’s Office. Al Walker taught a session on “Gateway to Excellence” detailing the small characteristics that make the BIG differences in anyone’s quest for excellence. Sheriff Jerry Monette of Craven County and his staff were hosts for the Sheriffs’ Association’s Annual Training Conference. The Association Headquarters is located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Edmond W. Caldwell, Jr. serves as Executive Vice President and General Counsel.
UDC owns Confederate Soldier City officials have determined that the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) owns the statue of the Confederate Soldier that stood in the downtown area for 101 years, but the land underneath it belongs to the City of Reidsville. State UDC President Aileen Ezell has indicated to the City that her organization will not ask that the statue be put back up at the intersection of Scales and Morehead Streets. Ezell attended the Reidsville City Council meeting on June 8th when several people stood up and spoke on whether or not the statue should be returned to the original location. She informed City Manager Michael Pearce by letter dated July 21 that “While we much prefer the monument to remain in the location it has occupied for the past 100 years, we do not wish to be a factor in any unpleasantness that may occur if the statue is allowed to remain in its present location.” Mrs. Ezell is currently working with Travelers Insurance on replacement costs as curators the UDC hired have determined that the statue can not be repaired. The other question for the UDC is where the statue should be placed when and if it is replaced. Ezell and Pearce have discussed the possibility of placing a statue in an alternate location, such as the Confederate area of the City-owned Greenview Cemetery or a museum. Pearce has offered the services of City workers to help move the base of the statue, which still remains in the intersection. However, no firm decisions have been made by the UDC as they are still working with the insurance company. The placement of the statue as well as its ownership has been in question since a motorist hit the monument in the early morning hours of May 23. The UDC had raised the funds to erect the statue in 1910, but present-day City leaders assumed the statue had been gifted to the City. However, a review of public records by City Attorney William F. McLeod Jr. did not show any evidence that the

Council minutes dated April 5, 1910 do reflect that a request was made by the UDC to place the soldier in the intersection, but they did not indicate the statue was a donation to the City. The September 2 1924 minutes showed that City officials requested instructions from the UDC when planning to replace the fence around the monument with a wall, which also indicates the UDC may have been the owner. Mayor James K. Festerman said the Council is currently researching other alternatives for the intersection. “We anticipate putting in the roundabout something that will be a source of identification for the City’s downtown area for future generations,” he said. “We will be asking for community input to erect a landmark for all of our citizens and visitors to enjoy.”

Rockingham County Schools Achieve Strong Results on State ABCs of Public Education Test Results The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) has released information on school performance, for the 2010-2011 school year, as measured by the state’s ABCs of Public Education. A school’s ABCs growth status is determined by its growth calculation and its change ratio (a measure of the percent of students meeting their individual growth targets). Growth formulas give school districts the ability to provide teachers with individual student growth information. With 24 out of 26 (92.3%) schools making expected growth, Rockingham County Schools has reason to celebrate. In Rockingham County, fifteen elementary schools, three middle schools, five high schools, the alternative school and the district as a whole met expected growth. Schools that exceeded the growth expectations set by the state are considered to have met high growth. Eight Rockingham County schools met high growth. The schools that met the expectations of growth set by the state are: Bethany Elem., Central Elem., Dillard Elem., Douglass Elem., Draper Elem., Huntsville Elem., Leaksville-Spray Elem.,
Lincoln Elem., Monroeton Elem., Moss Street Elem., New Vision School, South End Elem., Stoneville Elem., Wentworth Elem., Williamsburg Elem., Reidsville Middle, Rockingham County Middle, Western Rockingham Middle, McMichael High, Morehead High, Reidsville High, Rockingham County High, Rockingham Early College High and The SCORE Center. Schools that met high growth are as follows: Leaksville-Spray Elem., Lincoln Elem., South End Elem., Williamsburg Elem., Rockingham County Middle, Reidsville High, Rockingham County High and The SCORE Center. In the recognitions category, Rockingham County Early College High School was named an Honor School of Excellence. Less than 10 percent of NC public schools received this award, the highest category of recognition. Honor Schools of Excellence have at least 90 percent of their test scores at or above Level III, and show at least expected growth. Five Rockingham County Schools were recognized as Schools of Distinction – Bethany Elem., Leaksville-Spray Elem., New Vision School, Wentworth

Elem. and Rockingham County High. To qualify as a School of Distinction, 80 to 89 percent of students must test at or above Level III and the school must make expected or high growth. Furthermore, fifteen schools in Rockingham County Schools earned the designation of Schools of Progress – Central Elem., Dillard Elem., Douglass Elem., Huntsville Elem., Lincoln Elem., Monroeton Elem., South End Elem., Stoneville Elem., Williamsburg Elem., Reidsville Middle, Rockingham County Middle, Western Rockingham Middle, McMichael High, Morehead High, and Reidsville High. In order to meet the requirements to be a School of Progress, 60 to 79 percent of students must test at or above Level III and the school must make expected or high growth. This is the second consecutive year 92% of Rockingham County schools made expected growth. In commenting on the district’s results, Superintendent Dr. Rodney Shotwell stated, “We are extremely pleased that our district is experiencing steady academic gains and more importantly, our students are learning and growing. We set high expectations and goals for academic achievement and these results are another indication that our students are receiving a quality education. We could not have achieved such outstanding performance without hard work dedication and teamwork from our students, parents, teachers, support staff, administrators and community. We will use these results to identify strengths and areas for improvement and will work together to ensure each student reaches their potential. This moment of celebration for all our hard work will not diminish, but energize our efforts to keep moving towards greater levels of academic achievement."

“Race Your Way to a Weekend Getaway” Promotion September presenting blood donors will be entered into a drawing for two domestic roundtrip tickets on Delta Air Lines and a $500 gift card The American Red Cross and Delta Air Lines are partnering during the month of September for the “Race Your Way to a Weekend Getaway” promotion. All presenting volunteer donors in the month of September will be entered into a regional drawing for a pair of domestic roundtrip tickets courtesy of Delta Air Lines and a $500 gift card. “Delta is one of our most avid corporate supporters, and we appreciate the token of appreciation they have extended to our donors,” stated Joyce Brendel, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region. “While we know our donors give because they want to help someone in need, it’s always a pleasure to provide such a great incentive to those who give so selflessly of their time and resources.” The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make or keep appointments to give blood this September to help maintain a stable blood supply for ongoing or emergency needs. Though the summer is over, the need for blood and blood products still exists. It is important that the blood supply is maintained regardless of the season because the need is constant. Donors must be at 17 years of age or older, 16 with parental
consent, and weigh at least 110 pounds. Donors 18 years of age and under must meet specific height and weight requirements. To find an American Red Cross blood drive near you, please call The Rockingham

Dustin and Daniel McCall, Tamara Nunes, standing, and Stephen Pegram with controler, demontrate the newly created accounting program.
Students create, sell computer games Dustin and Daniel McCall, Tamara Nunes, and Stephen Pegram are all doing it. Prior to graduating from Rockingham Community College, the four are already using their computer programming knowledge to make money. An accountant, Nunes designed a program to increase efficiency in her business operation. “It took three weeks to create it” said Nunes, explaining that her creation gives her staff the capability to perform certain accounting functions when working with clients. Prior to creating the program, staff members had to ask Nunes to perform those functions. Twin brothers Dustin and Daniel McCall, as well as fellow classmate Stephen Pegram, have created computer games. Sold on Xbox Live Marketplace and its subsection Indie Games Marketplace, the McCall’s have earned over $1,500 and Pegram has earned over $200. Individuals who go to the Internet site can try games and if they like them, can purchase for one dollar each. “This is the place for people who make simple games,” said Pegram. Pegram thinks it’s “cool” that while more than 200 people have purchased Zombie Poker Defense, Pirate Texas Hold ‘Em Defense or Ballochet, all games he’s created while in Rick Leinecker’s programming class, over 1,500 have tried the games. Even so, Pegram is admittedly not a strong programmer. He is, however, adept at game graphics and has become the class “go to” person for the artistic aspect of gaming. The McCall brothers, on the other hand, are strong programmers. Their first game, a 25 level puzzle called Boom Kikker, was followed by Super Sequence, Super Sequence 2 and 3, iCandy, and Off Balance. The graphics are bright and the games require memory to knowledge of physics. An estimated 30,000-40,000 have tried

No. Leinecker echoes students’ sentiments when he says, “You have to put in time outside of class to study and understand the material.” Nunes said she typically puts in two hours per night writing programs. To further aid understanding, Leinecker, as well as many programming students, have made YouTube videos explaining various programming processes. Programming, of course, cannot be mastered without a fundamental understanding of computers and the way they work. Combine that with programming knowledge, though, and the money can start rolling in – even before graduation day.

Overman Selected as New Vice President
Dr. Jan G. Overman of Winston Salem has been appointed Vice President for Academic Affairs at RCC. Overman will be responsible for all instructional staff, educational programs, and learning resources. She will begin her duties Overman on Thursday, September 1, 2011. Overman brings a strong background in the health sciences area and in college administration. Since June 2004, she has served as Dean of Health Technologies at Forsyth Technical Community College, where she also served for an interim period as Dean of Arts and Sciences. In addition, Overman served as Associate Dean of Health Science and as Director of Nursing at Caldwell Community College. Overman began her career in the classroom, serving as Lead Instructor of Nursing at Coastal Carolina Community College and Forsyth Technical Community College for a total of 14 years. “I accepted this position because of the reputation and evidence that RCC is committed to student success, values access to learning for all citizens and is supported by the community it serves,” said Overman. Noting the college’s strong leadership supported by faculty and staff who care about the mission of the college, Overman said, “I look forward to building partnerships within and among our key stakeholders and serving our students, faculty and community.” Overman received her bachelor’s degree in nursing and master’s degree in nursing education from of East Carolina University. She earned a doctorate in Education Leadership from Appalachian State University. Honors include Sigma Theta Tau Research Award, Research Award and Teaching Excellence Award from East Carolina University, NC Great 100 Recipient from NC Nurses Association, Health Care Hero from the Triad Business Journal, National Collegiate Education Award from Appalachian State University, Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers from Forsyth Technical Community College, and Who’s Who Cambridge Professional. Overman is a member of many professional organizations including Central Area Instructional Administrators, NC Instructional Administrators, NC ADN Council, and NC Community College Deans of Health Science. RCC President Dr. Michael Helmick said, “I look forward to having Dr. Overman join the College in this important capacity.”
RCC welcomes new dean On Aug. 8, Laura Coffee began her role as Rockingham Community College’s dean of continuing education. Most recently, Coffee served as director of adult education at Alamance Community College in Burlington. “Rockingham County is rich with Coffee resources,” said Coffee, saying that those resources could translate into the rise of twenty-first century businesses, industries and jobs for citizens. “The college is positioned in an area with so much potential.” A graduate of Wittenberg University in Ohio and the University of Michigan, Coffee has taught English as a second language, provided literacy programs for the homeless and their families, provided workplace training in the textile and automotive industry, developed customized training for various industries, and developed occupational extension classes. A particularly proud accomplishment for Coffee was developing a pottery program at Central Carolina Community College. Begun out of strong community interest, the program launched so many successful pottery businesses that it became an occupational program and then a two-year degree program at the college. After more than a decade, the program continues to graduate many students. At the same time that pottery became a curriculum program,

LUMC Announces New Child Development Center Director The Leaksville United Methodist Church Child Development Center welcomes Jan Joyce as its new Director. Joyce has worked as a Lead Teacher at the CDC for the past four years. She previously worked in the Rockingham County Public Schools for eight years. “We are delighted to have Jan with us as Director,” said Liz Ferguson, Chairperson of the CDC Board of Directors. “Jan has a Joyce strong love for the preschool. I know she will bring tremendous energy and enthusiasm to the program.” In addition to serving as Director, Joyce will continue to teach a 4-year-old class. “I am so excited to be a part of such an important ministry,” Joyce said. “As director, I look forward to continuing to make this preschool a Christian-influenced learning environment where each child feels as individual and special as God intended.” Founded in 1970, the CDC serves as a vital ministry of Leaksville United Methodist Church. Students participate in church outreach activities such as collecting food for the Leaksville-Spray Backpack ministry, sponsoring children at Christmas through the Salvation Army, and providing shoe boxes for Samaritan’s Purse. Joyce plans to maintain this spirit of service. She also wants the CDC to continue its tradition of supporting the families of its students. “I believe we are a treasure to this community,” she said. “We make a relationship that not only touches the lives of our students, but reaches out to their families as well.” Students also participate in field trips throughout the year. They travel to see a concert by Mr. Al each year, visit a pumpkin farm in the fall, and experience strawberry picking first-hand at Tuttle’s Farm in the spring. This year the CDC will offer a Breakfast Bunch option for parents who would like to drop their children off earlier than the regular 9 a.m. start time. The CDC is now accepting applications for the fall. Information can be obtained by calling 336-612-2722 or by visiting the CDC’s website at www.lumccdc.weebly.com.

High-Flying Purina Incredible Dog Team To Perform The high-flying Purina® Incredible Dog Team, a collection of some of the world’s most athletic canines, will entertain fans at venues across the country throughout 2011. On September 17, 2011 the Purina® Incredible Dog Team will be performing extraordinary acrobatic tricks right in your area at the Annual Eden RiverFest in the historic Olde Leaksville Shopping District with four performances that day. Laura Moretz will be performing with her incredible team of dogs, representing the Purina Incredible Dog Team. The Team is comprised of four trainers with more than 15 outstanding dogs. The Purina Incredible Dog Team demonstrates Purina’s passion for pets by delighting crowds across the country with amazing freestyle flying disc routines. These dogs are not only incredible, but also in excellent physical condition, whether they’re puppies, adults or seniors. Utilizing a high-energy performance set to music, the trainers and their dogs entertain while also educating people about responsible pet care and how proper nutrition and good training can bring out the best in any dog, at any life stage. The Team stresses the “incredible” potential in every dog, which is reflected in a number of canine team members who were adopted at animal shelters and rescue groups around the country. The athletic feats performed by the team include rolling back catches, twolegged balancing acts on the trainer’s feet and vaulting off of their trainer’s body to snare a flying disc.

The Ultimate Water Balloon Game Water Wars is a game or competition--here is how you play: Opponents go to opposing battle stations with buckets of water balloons. Each battle station has a water balloon launcher. Place a balloon in the launcher, pull down on the handle, aim, and fire!

An old Italian living alone in Brighton wanted to plant his annual tomato garden but, last year, it was very difficult work because the ground was so hard.. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in Lewes prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament: Dear Vincent, I am feeling pretty sad, because it looks like I won't be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to dig over the whole plot. I know if you were here my troubles would be over.. I know you would be happy to dig the plot over for me, just like the old days. Hope you are well. Love, Papa A few days later he received a letter from his son. Dear Papa, Don't dig up that bit of the garden. You might come across something you won't want to find! Love, Vinnie At 4:30 am the next morning, twelve policeman from the local nick arrived and took two days to dig up the entire garden. Of course they found nothing, apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received a second letter from his son. Dear Papa, Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances. Love you, Vinnie

She explains to her grandmother That she has friends coming over and that it is just not appropriate... The grandmother says, 'Loosen up, Sweetie. If you can show off your rose buds, then I can display my hanging baskets.

Two Men Plead Guilty To Robbery Charge Two Reidsville men pled guilty to an August, 2010, robbery and other charges in Rockingham county Superior Court this morning.

Steven Antwan Malloy, 20, pled guilty to one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of felony possession of marijuana, and was sentenced to 40-57 months in prison. Carlton O'brien Roberts, 20, pled guilty to one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon, sale/deliver marijuana, and possession with intent to sell/deliver marijuana. He was sentenced to 44-62 months in the Department of Corrections. Jonathan Herbin,24, previously pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon arising out ot the same August, 2010 incident. Herbin was sentenced this morning to 20-33 months in prison.
Jury Convicts Brim Of Harboring Wanted Man A jury found Ronnie Junior Brim, Jr., 26,guilty today in Rockingham County Superior Court of one count of harboring a wanted man. Brim appealed the conviction and an appeal bond was ordered by the court. In March, 2010, Detective D.H. Muhammad with the Reidsville Police Department obtained a warrant for arrest for Wayne Anthony Lee,Jr. concerning a 2008 homicide. Fliers were posted and media releases were issued by the police department stating that Lee was wanted. Detective Muhammad received numerous phone calls from citizens stating that Lee was being housed in Brim's residence. Brim was informed by Detective Muhammed that there was an order for Lee's arrest and that he should contact the police if he saw Lee. Brim was further informed that he should not assist Lee in avoiding arrest. On April 12, Detective Muhammad received information that Lee was in Brim's vehicle and later observed at Brim's address, where he was taken into custody; Brim was later indicted for his role in assisting Lee.
Community college education touted as vital Albaad CEO, William Thomas, U.S. Representative Brad Miller, Governor Beverly Perdue and acting U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Dr. Rebecca Blank all said the same thing on Aug. 18 following a tour of the expanding Albaad company in Reidsville: the trained workforce provided by community colleges is one of the major reasons companies like Albaad choose a particular area in which to locate. The tour and speeches were a chance to explain SelectUSA, a federal initiative to attract foreign investors, like Israeli-owned Albaad, to America. But one of the keys to attracting these companies, they said, is a trained and skilled workforce. “We are fortunate to have the best community college system in the country,” said Miller. “We are recognized as the pioneer of that system. It is part of the reason Albaad is here.” In the area since 2004, Albaad began as AFG Wipes but eventually changed to the name of the parent company. Since 2006, it has nearly doubled its workforce. “The first questions the leaders of this industry asked was, ‘What kind of workers can we find in Rockingham County?’” said Perdue. “The reason the state is moving forward is because we believe every citizen deserves a shot at the American dream and that is only possible through tax dollars spent in the North Carolina educational system.” Blank, an economist and expert statistician, said job growth in the 2000 decade was the slowest since the 1940s. “At the same time, costs were rising and wages were stagnant. No country did less to help itself financially than America did in the 2000s.”

Rockingham County 4-H youth attends NCACC Youth Summit A 4-H’er from Rockingham County attended the second annual North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) Youth Summit, which was held in Concord, North Carolina August 19-20, 2011. North Carolina 4-H and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service partnered for the second year with the NCACC on a multi-year initiative to increase youth involvement in county government. This initiative aims to overcome the mindset that many youth are disengaged and lack trust in government. This initiative also aims to identify issues and solutions that are facing youth in North Carolina. The 4-H’er who attended from Rockingham County was Lydia Ryan who resides in Reidsville. Over 85 youth and adults from over 70 counties in North Carolina attended this event. The event is sponsored and supported by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners. For more information on the 4-H program in Rockingham County, please contact Morgan Maness, 4H Agent at 336-342-8230 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The 4-H program is the youth education program of North Carolina Cooperative Extension, based at North Carolina State and North Carolina A&T State universities. More than 218,000 young people between the ages of 5 and 19 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities each year with the help of 21,400 adult and youth volunteers.
It’s a Green Thing... In the line at the store, the young cashier told an older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment. The woman apologized to him and explained, "We didn't have the green thing back in my day." The clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment." He was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day. Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refill ed, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the green thing back in our day. We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day. Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw-away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brandnew clothing. But that old lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day. Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana . In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used a wadded up old newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she's right; we didn't have the green thing back then. We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the green thing back then. Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 22,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint. But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then? Contributed

Star Trek Fan Club works to better the community USS Edan NFC 1187-A Commissioning Date: March 1 2011 “Trekkies”. Just the word brings images of folks dressed up in alien garb and enjoying the fun of conventions. But this club means a so much more to the community. The USS Edan is active in humanitarian relief efforts such as giving blood, donation of food and money to the Red Cross, and working closely with such organization such as the Children's Miracle Network, The National Cancer Society, Lance Armstrong Foundation.
Commander Billy R. Williams, Commissioned Federation Officer February 2011, is Chapter President and founder of the USS Edan NFC 1187-A, School of Engineering Director (IFT Academy), Assistant IFT Academy Director. William’s says, “We are looking to work more closely with “home front” organizations such as Rockingham County Help for the Homeless, Habitat for Humanity, Goodwill Industries, and we can't forget our fury friends at the Humane Society. We have worked in the past with some of these organizations and we are looking forward to helping some of them.” The USS Edan is Eden's first active Star Trek fan club was started in March of 2011 by it's commanding officer Commander Billy Williams. The Chapter is a non-profit organization along the lines as the Moose Lodge. It's mission is as follows: • To promote the humanitarian philosophies and ideals portrayed in the Star Trek mythos in a realistic fashion, conducive to the
continued existence and responsible advancement of human kind. • To provide and support education in the areas of human rights, racial and sexual equality, environmental causes, and space exploration. • To promote a more positive impression of Star Trek enthusiasts as intelligent, socially conscious, active individuals who are aware of and concerned about the real world today. • To promote a positive outlook of the future by partaking in public service and charitable campaigns around the world, helping
those in need in the hopes of making the world a better place. To support those who enjoy Star Trek through networking, organization of events, news services and fan representation After almost a year of construction, the birth of IFT happened on June 1, 1984, the same date as the opening of Star Trek III: Search for Spock. At the time, this small group of rebels were known as the "Ohio Federation of Trekkers." IFT's first chapter, the USS Conquest, was based in Cleveland, Ohio. The organization's principal newsletter, the "Federation Log," contained information about the club, events, and editorial comments. What started off rather small grew beyond the boundaries of the state of Ohio and into other states and countries. This growth was instrumental in legally changing the organization's name to what is now known as the "International Federation of
Trekkers." In the late 1980s, IFT defined its position and changed its newsletter from the "Federation Log" to the "IFT Newsletter." This new publication featured articles on the environment, space programs from around the world, and education. The club also changed and improved its logos and graphics, knowing that they would lead the way to a greater awareness of the organization and its purpose. IFT's founding chapter was renamed as well, changing the name from the USS Conquest to the USS T'hy'la (a Vulcan word meaning "more than friends"). A fictional history was created to better define the role of IFT chapters as they relate to the fictional vessels of Starfleet in this Star Trek Universe that has grown so much in the past 30 years. Since IFT beginnings, the organization has proven that change is a good thing and that only through change can any organization meet the needs of its membership. On April 23, 1992, the IFT incorporated itself to reflect the organization's real-world stance. The IFT newsletter was again changed to a publication called "Voyages," allowing a broader perspective on Trek-related events, club information, and articles ranging from environmental issues to public awareness and space programs. Other areas were affected by the incorporation process as well, such as the complete restructuring of IFT's command level and legal aspects of IFT's position in the real world. We believe in the dream that Gene Rodenberry had when he created The StarTrek Saga. We are under the much larger “Parent” Organization “International Federation of Trekkers”, Which is THE largest and oldest Star Trek Fan club.” So The USS Edan is Sanctioned and Endorsed by IFT. Also it is important to note that
the International Federation of Trekkers is the ONLY Fan club co-founded by Gene Rodenberry himself. IFT is a non-profit corporation. Its staff consist of the President/Chief
of Operations, a Vice President/Chief of Staff, and a minimum of three (3) other officers sitting together as IFT Council. From the website www.trekfederation.com (organization's website)

Richard’s Meats & Things Represents Eden as a community and the Rich history that we find here in our own back yard. The Star Ship you see is that of a Galaxy Class Star Ship (much like the one commanded by Captain Pickard in the Next Generation Series). This vessel is flying high above a factory. Eden was built and known as a “Mill Town”, or a town which grows because of the contributions of a Factory. The factory not only represtents all current Factories but also that of Spray Cotton Mill and Fieldcrest Cannon (the original and most renown mill here in Eden). We also see in the Logo the two rivers, as Eden is now coined “The Land of Two Rivers.” Both Rivers are to symbolize both the Smith and the Dan River that run thru Eden.

From The Desks Of CITY HALL City Hall set to install automated meter readers By Tammie McMichael, Director of Finance The city will begin installing automated meter reading later this year. The new automated meters will be able to continuously collect and process meter reading data, replacing the traditional meters that have to be manually checked monthly. This timely information, coupled with analysis, will help both the city and our customers better control the use and production of water consumption. For you, this project offers a number of immediate benefits: · Automated readings are 100 percent reliable and accurate; · Meter readings will be obtained without a meter reader coming to your property except for rare circumstances; · Additional data is gathered to help with early detection of pos-
sible leaks, which if undetected end up costing you money on your water and sewer bill; · Reduction in recurring annual personnel and operational costs equaling approximately $1 million every 10 years; and, · Data profiling capabilities which allow city staff to address customer service issues. Indeed, all residents will benefit. This technology will save money in manpower and cus-
Although Angie Thomas is the new face in the police department’s records division, she’s not new to City Hall. Since 2004, she has been a valued employee working in payroll and purchas-
ing and most recently in billing and collections. She’s excited about filling the position she took over after Louise Hammock retired. “I have the utmost respect for the Eden Police,” Thomas said. “I’m thrilled to join the department and be part of the team that protects and serves Eden.” Thomas has taken on a busy role which includes among many other duties answering calls, processing citations and reports, and supporting the department’s administrative staff. She also has the important task of assisting people who come to the department for help, often under difficult circumstances. Being able to calm and comfort these citizens in need is one of the many things about her new job Thomas enjoys. “Like all of the staff here in the PD, I strive to make a positive difference,” she said. Thomas and her husband Terry are the proud of parents of daughter Amari, an eighth-grader at Reidsville Middle School. The family lives in Reidsville.

But, she pointed to a 17 percent rise in American exports and the creation of over 200,000 jobs to show, though slow, the economy is recovering. She added, though, that the rate of attracting foreign investors has declined sharply. That, she said, is the reason for the SelectUSA initiative. To attract those investors and continue the recovery, said Blank, “We need to ensure that employers have highly educated workers, that we have a sound infrastructure, and that we foster innovation.”

Sports Shorts NewBridge Bank Cheerleading Competition attracts thousands
The Rams from Reidsville High School won the Spirit Award for the third year in a row. In August 2,958 fans visited NewBridge Bank Park and watched the Panthers from Ledford High School defend their 2010 title to win the NewBridge Bank Jamboree Cheerleading Competition for the second year in a row. The spirited event, presented by Solis Women’s Health, featured 23
local high schools from Davidson, Forsyth, Guilford, Rockingham, and Stokes Counties. Ragsdale High School came in second place followed by Northwest Guilford High School in third. Five former and current University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill cheerleaders judged the competition. “All the teams
brought spirit for their schools, passion for their sport, and overall excellence to the field,” said Amanda Long, head judge. “We had an incredibly tough decision. Ledford High School’s superior execution of their routine placed them on top but all the teams deserve recognition for their tremendous performances.”
Tyson Hammer, Events and Community Relations Manager for NewBridge Bank, commented on the overall success of the evening. “Last night’s event was the largest Jamboree Cheerleading Competition to date. Coming into the event we had already raised over $46,000 through the generous donations of 271 area businesses and fans. The support of these sponsors, combined with last night’s record-breaking attendance, positions us to meet our total fundraising goal of $120,000.” The NewBridge Bank Invitational Football and Cheerleading Jamboree is the largest fund-raising effort led by NewBridge Bank each year. The Bank underwrites all the events so that one hundred percent of the proceeds benefit the athletic programs of the participating high schools. Since the Jamboree’s inception in 1999, NewBridge Bank has awarded over $470,000 to local high schools.
For the first time, NewBridge Bank has expanded the Jamboree into Forsyth County, adding four schools and Forsyth Football Scrimmages presented by Champion at Mount Tabor High School in Winston-Salem.

Mohawk Supports Athletics at Eden Y Recreation and team sports foster an incredibly beneficial environment for growing minds and bodies, helping kids stay active and healthy while learning valuable social skills. That’s why Karastan and the Mohawk Carpet Foundation have donated $2,500 to support the ongoing efforts at the Eden Family Y.M.C.A. The Eden Family Y.M.C.A. has offered athletic programs to young people in the Eden area for over 100 years. From youth basketball, baseball and soccer camps to community fitness facilities, the Y.M.C.A. provides a variety of programs and classes for every member of the community. “Karastan and the Mohawk Foundation have always been there for us ever since the Y.M.C.A. has been in existence in Eden,” said Barry Mabe, C.E.O. of the Eden Family Y.M.C.A. “We have a great partnership, and they are a great bunch of people. They really care about us.” Mabe shared that the donated funds would help to provide scholarships to area youth and families in need. He also mentioned that the organization already provides scholarships for about 600 people in the community, but that the number continues to grow thanks to support from Karastan and the Mohawk Carpet Foundation. “The Eden family Y.M.C.A. is one of those organizations that always positively impacts the community in such great ways,” said Megan Arrington, Human Resources Manager at Karastan. “We really appreciate all that they do, and we know that many of our people and their families benefit from the various pro-
grams and services offered there.” The Eden Family Y.M.C.A. is always looking for volunteers to coach and referee games, and to provide support in any way they can.

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.

CONGRATULATIONS! You GOT ‘ER DONE!
GOT ‘ER DONE! The Morehead High School Duane Best Auditorium new seats were ordered August 10, 2011! The school website notes this accomplishment. For a computer search to see this story and more, type in Morehead High School Eden NC. Of course, all installment donations and recently pledged seats helped complete the 21month campaign. The Duane Best Scholarship Fund humbly salutes with joy the hundreds of donors. The August edition of the EDEN’S OWN JOURNAL reported the progress made by the donors from May 14 through July 19. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2011 at 7:30 PM.: The Auditorium’s Golden Anniversary Dedication Choral Reunion is scheduled. This is exactly two years to the date of the project KICK OFF! More details will be provided about the program and performance plans. Who can help throw the party? At the 50th Reunion on August 20, the MHS Class of 1961 donated 12 seats with the help of an anonymous donor! The event was held at the Willow Oaks Event Center, the former home of Mr. and Mrs. R. I. Smith, Jr. Ironically, Mr. Smith was on the Leaksville School Board (1959) that approved construction of the auditorium. The WASHINGTON STREET SALONS BENEFIT concluded the formal fundraising
“The only ideas that will work for you are the ones you put to work,” is true for Jo Petty, the hundreds of donors and those unnamed seat replacement donors.
with four seats as well as cash and food donations for the American Red Cross, Rockingham County Chapter. Clients and friends donated at Bette-R-Look Salon and Day Spa, Capelli Salon, Head2Toe, Jennifer & Co., and Totally Clips. Who will donate on behalf of the Classes of 1992 and 1997? There’s a continuum of donors for classes 1947 – 2014 except for those two years. Even students in the Class of 2016 and 2018 have been honored! Together for MHS and Eden NC, ALL-AMERICA CITY 2011!
