Zoo study could impact Archdale A ny addition or expansion to the N.C. Zoo will bring more people to Archdale hotels, said Tammy O’Kelley, tourism director of Randolph County’s Tourism Development Authority, on why a feasibility study for the N.C. Zoo could benefit Archdale. BY ROBYN HANKINS

According to Hal Johnson, county planning director, the feasibility study will cover approximately 200 acres of land adjacent to the main North America entrance to the Zoo. “The property was a big concern while it was in private hands because there were only so many ways to regulate its use through zoning,” Johnson said. “While nothing has been put in black and white, what has been expressed is the possibility of adding an Asian continent and a cultural center,” O’Kelley continued. “And, after we fill up the hotel rooms in Asheboro, we always direct visitors to Archdale.” According to, the marketing leg of the TDA, five hotels are listed in Asheboro and six in

Archdale. The list indicates the number of miles from the Zoo, furniture shopping, Richard Petty Museum and Seagrove potteries. “The Zoo draws people from all over the country, all over the world, and the possibility of a third continent means more people will come and stay longer,” said Eddie Causey, an Archdale City Council member and member of the TDA board. Those people will stay in Archdale’s hotels, he continued, and may stay to see other area attractions like the Richard Petty Racing Museum, Seagrove potteries and High Point’s furniture shops. Longer stays mean more sales tax money injected into the local economy and a boost to small businesses. The study will cost $150,000 and the Zoo is paying half. The Randolph County Commissioners and city of Asheboro will each contribute $25,000. The Economic Development Corporation and the TDA will each contribute $12,500. “What we want to see from this study is concrete evidence that yes, this the best thing to do,” O’Kelley told the NEWS. “Only then will we have a better idea of how it will impact the rest of the county.”

Trinity Council serious about trash, recycling ‘I

don’t want to put a Band-Aid on a gaping hole,’ said Councilman Kelly Grooms. That was the consensus reached by Trinity City Council after more than an hour of discussion about curbside trash and recycling during their annual retreat.

BY ROBYN HANKINS The retreat was held Jan. 9 in High Point. The option of a recycling-only site or a partnership with Randolph County to

‘Carolina Moonshine’ released


he song and video “Carolina Moonshine,” written and performed by Matt Dylan, debuted last week. STAFF REPORTS

The song will be featured on the soundtrack of the the movie, “Red Dirt Rising,” as well as on Dylan’s self-titled CD. Like the movie, “Carolina Moonshine” highlights the history behind stockcar racing, dating back to the days of running moonshine. The music is being used to help promote the movie to a broader audience. Dylan wrote this song and presented it to “Red Dirt Rising,” said Gary Lewallen, executive producer of the movie. They added it to the soundtrack and worked with Dylan to make the music video. James Suttles, Red Dirt Rising producer and director, filmed the video in December on the English farm in Archdale, on racer Junior Johnson’s farm and at North Wilkesboro Speedway. Several local folks, including Lewallen were “drafted” as actors. SEE VIDEO ON PAGE 14

build a convenience site, which would accept trash and recyclables, was eliminated early in the discussion. “Why can’t we just put one on the back of the city’s property?” asked Councilwoman Karen Bridges. The city owns about 30 acres between N.C. 62 and Surrett Drive. Plans call for the development of a municipal park. The smell and noise from trucks would generate complaints, Grooms said. Also, the unmanned recycling site on Surrett Drive was closed due to illegal dumping. City Manager Ann Bailie added that a similar site next to

the Guil-Rand Fire Department’s Hillsville station was closed for the same reason. “In the long-term, you get more and better participation with curbside,” said Grooms. “It’s a convenience.” Stormwater Administrator Rich Baker concurred. “I’ve spoken with people with Guilford County, and they said recycling center traffic drops off after about six months, but curbside recycling grows. It’s a convenience issue.” “What if we just try the recycling bins?” asked Councilwoman Linda Gantt. “If people don’t have trash pickup,

they’re just going to start dumping again,” Councilwoman Kristen Varner responded. Grooms agreed. “The timing (for curbside) wasn’t right last time.” The City had considered curbside and recycling programs in April 2009, but Council did not approve it because of financing concerns and protests from citizens who attended a community meeting. Councilman Tommy Johnson, elected in November, noted that everyone he spoke to thought it would pass, so they didn’t attend the meeting held last spring. SEE TRASH ON PAGE 4

Truck ordinance would target residential areas

ArchdaleTrinity News

Study will address schools over capacity, under utilized T Kathy

Founded in 1978

he Randolph County Board of Education has a tough road ahead. The issues will be as slippery as the ice and snow we experienced over the weekend.

To the editor, In response to a comment made by Mr. James Creech at the Jan. 19 Trinity Council Meeting in which he said that of the 13 properties covered by the restrictive covenants, 11 of the property owners do not have anything against him parking his truck on his property, I think public record will show this is not an accurate statement. I know of three other property owners on our street, Country Meadows Lane, who oppose Mr. Creech’s parking and had contacted City Council and City Manager Ann Bailie about their opposition. Together with my husband and I who live on one side of Mr. Creech and Mr. and Mrs. James Barker who live on the other side, that makes five families who would like to see a parking ordinance enforced in our residential area. We took the time to drive around to view where other truckers live. The areas are more open than ours and I can understand why there wouldn’t be a problem with their parking at their residences. We are on a small street which ends in a cul-de-sac and almost all the properties sit on only one acre. Mr. Creech’s tractor is parked probably less than 60 feet from our bedroom windows.

As a body, I believe they are committed to the people they serve. Balancing the concerns of students, taxpayers, parents and county commissioners and meeting the requirements of state regulations of ABCs and AYPs — well, no thank you to that job. Most recently, the board made a decision to leave as is the grade configuration of Archdale-Trinity schools, thereby keeping Archdale Elementary School intact rather than converting it into a sixth grade school. This poses another dilemma — the under utilization of some campuses such as Trindale Elementary School. But this is not just an Archdale-Trinity issue — it’s systemwide. Officials are examining the needs of all schools in all four areas of the school district, a task as steep as the rolling hills of Randolph County. School board members recently toured the campus of Randleman Elementary School. The 10-day enrollment was 843 with capacity set at 645. Fifteen mobile units handle the overflow of almost 200. At Randleman Middle School, the 10day enrollment of sixth- to eighth-grades was 781. Capacity is 1,144. The 10-day enrollment of Randleman High School was 852; its capacity is 910. How to best utilize current schools should be a strong objective of the 10-year facility plan to be presented to commissioners at the March 20 retreat.

I’m just a sittin’ and a sittin’ H

ow many times in your life have you found yourself in a position that you had to cut back your activities and just sit around the house an extended period of time?

I hope not many of you, if you’re anything like me. I like to be active. I hate to just sit. The week before Christmas I found myself on the operating table for the third time in 2009, under the knife of my capable and good looking orthopaedic doctor, Dr. Christopher Bashore of High Point Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. This time he did a total right knee replacement. I was supposed to have had the surgery earlier in the year but I begged him to get me through the Bush Hill Heritage Festival and I would have it. He did with the help of a lot of painful injections. Now notice I said right knee. That means no driving for a while. Now everyone who knows me knows I love my little Mazda truck and that I love to drive my truck everywhere. But you have to have a good right leg to drive it. I know because I tried to drive up and down the driveway the other day and found


out I couldn’t mash the gas or brake pedals too good. Back to my new oversize recline. I went to sit. Seems like all my bones and joints are going. Where, I just don’t know ’cause I can still feel them hurting. Getting older is the pits and getting older with my “friend” arthritis is definitely no fun. My dear husband Butch keeps telling me there is an alternative to the getting older part, but I’m not ready to throw in the towel yet, not until the Lord decides it’s time to take me home. Well, to get back to the sitting part. I think my backside is getting broader. Anyone who knows me, knows I am an active person and a people person. I work two jobs, go to church three or four times a week, play the piano, go grocery shopping, mow the yard, plant flowers, walk when I can, visit with friends — well, you get the picture. So, all this down time is hard on me. I totally sympathize with anyone who cannot get out and do things. A friend from church, Betty Linthicum, felt sorry for me and brought two bags of

The council concurred, and discussion shifted to how to pay for curbside service. “The only reason I voted no last time was because the financing changed,” Bridges added. “I do not want to take money out of our general fund.” “They’re already paying for it,” Councilman Tyler Earnst reminded his colleagues. He was referring to the projected $15 per month fee for curbside trash and recycling, which is about what 75 percent of city residents pay for trash pickup alone. “The cheapest way to do it is through taxes,” Grooms said bluntly. “That way you roll it into their Randolph County tax bill and eliminate billing costs.” Bailie told the NEWS that if Council chose to pay for curbside through taxes only, it would require a 8.97 cent tax increase. This would be less expensive because billing costs would be approximately $38,000 per year. In any other option, those billing costs would be passed on to residents. The other payment options include a $9, $10 or $11 monthly fee, with the remaining cost offset by a transfer from the general fund or a 1 or 2 percent tax increase, or a combination of both. Gantt pointed out that residents were likely to become upset if the city institutes mandatory curbside pickup and wondered if there was a way for some people to opt out. Grooms, Sikes and Bailie all noted that there was no good way to make that work. Bailie explained that by taking money from the general fund the city could offer residents a lower rate, approximately $9 per month, for the first two years. “We have four haulers operating in

the city, but only three of them are part of the proposed corporation that we would contract with,” Bailie continued. “That was the reason for (offering) the low teaser rate, to get them to sever that relationship voluntarily.” Otherwise, there could be legal ramifications, she added. If the city institutes mandatory curbside pickup through a contracted service, it could be construed as the city severing a pre-existing business relationship. It would be better to offer the curbside trash and recycling at a lower price than what most residents are already paying for trash service. Doing that would make the city’s service legal and fair competition. Council asked City Attorney Bob Wilhoit to investigate any possible ramifications the city could incur if they choose to institute mandatory service. “What’s the turnaround time (to get service started)?” Earnst asked. “Anywhere from three to six months to a year,” Bailie responded. “It depends on how long it takes to work out the contracts.” Bailie added that toters would be phased in gradually and require a onetime expenditure of $135,000. Grant money may pay all or part of that cost. The toters would be provided to residents free of charge. At the Jan. 19 meeting, Mayor Carlton Boyles appointed Johnson, Grooms and Sikes to a trash and recycling task force. Advisory board members Gwyn Riddick and Jeff Taylor were also appointed. They will consider these issues and others related to it. The task force will investigate the issues and present the information later this year.

books by the house and I have read all of them but two. Another church friend, Janice Brown, decided I needed to read Sarah Palin’s new book. It’s just a little over 400 pages, and I have started on that. But all this sitting, reading and watching television is boring. The HGTV channel has shown so many reruns I can just about tell you which house someone chooses when the House Hunters episode begins. It’s bad when you can’t wait for the phone to ring to actually talk with a real person. Church friends Everette and Mildred Hemric and Phyllis Rheuark take turns driving me twice a week to the rehabilitation center, where I have met a lot of great people — patients and therapists. Some patients are a lot worse off than me and some are not as bad. We have a bond — we all hurt — and we have a good time talking about our maladies. Our age groups range from two teenagers, one of them more than 6 feet tall, to a couple of patients in their late 70s. One lady just had hip replacement a few weeks ago and she and I were doing

Whatever the solution is, I have no doubt that money will be the issue. Superintendent Donald Andrews was quoted in the Asheboro Courier Tribune as saying, “The odds of getting funding are challenging.” It may be 2015 before money for additional facilities or renovations may be available. Smaller amounts of money could be available by 2013. Planning is critical and the job will be hard. Randolph County has 31 schools, which house 18,916 students. However, capacities total 20,373 students. The systemwide long-term approach is a wise one, but it carries restrictions for the Archdale-Trinity attendance area because of the school tax district. Only those who live in the tax district may attend ArchdaleTrinity schools. It may throw a curve in a countywide plan, but the additional money has contributed to the success of schools like Archdale Elementary. I wish I had the discernment to offer a solution. I can only say I appreciate that the Board of Education is studying the issue so intently. It ain’t easy being in the hot seat.

Regaining Civility Whether we have become a less civil nation has been widely discussed of late. From politicians and "talking heads" screaming at each other to celebrities throwing temper tantrums, to the everyday incivilities on our roadways and in our marketplaces. There is a general sense that we have become a nation of ill-tempered boors. That is the bad news. The good news is that in recognizing our incivility there is hope for redemption. Perhaps we need etiquette lessons from Emily Post, or civics classes in our high school. But, on a more basic level, perhaps we just need to recognize that the problem arises because we have cultivated individualism and its corresponding selfishness to such an extreme that we have forgotten a central teaching of Christianity, and indeed of all true religion. After all, isn't loving your neighbor as yourself the lynch pin of both morals and manners? A simple litmus test for every thought, word and deed is to ask oneself whether one intends to help orhurt with one's words or deeds. If our intention is to help, then we can be pretty sure that we are being civil, whereas if our true intention is to hurt someone, either emotionally or physically, we can be pretty certain that we are not being civil. So, we should consider our actions in that light, whether they are intended to help or hurt someone, and strive to always come down on the side of civility.

I-85 tractor trailer wreck sends Lexington man to hospital

A Lexington man was treated and released at High Point Regional Hospital Friday following an accident involving a tractor-trailer truck on Interstate 85 at the N.C. 62 bridge. At 7:35 a.m. Friday, Jan. 29, Kristine Diane Lehrer of Clayton was headed north in a 2006 Sterling truck with trailer owned by Con-Way Freight. Also headed north was a 2002 Honda driven by Tony Edward Beck of Lexington. According to an Archdale police report, the two vehicles sideswiped each other, with the right rear of the truck making contact with the left front of the Toyota. Investigators were unable to determine which vehicle crossed the center line. The Sterling exited the roadway to the left and spun around before going back across the road in front of the Honda. The truck then went off the roadway on the right and struck a concrete barrier. It traveled backward for 112 feet and spun around, continuing to travel for another 225 feet before coming to rest. There was an estimated $1,500 in damages to the Sterling, and $2,900 to the Honda.

Fireworks now require permit As of Feb. 1, 2010, all pyrotechnic operators in North Carolina must obtain a permit before setting off indoor or outdoor fireworks, said Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Wayne Goodwin. The new law requires anyone who uses pyrotechnic (outdoor) or audience proximate (indoor) fireworks to submit an application to the Department’s Office of State Fire Marshal, attend a safety class and score a passing grade of 80 percent on the permit exam. Any event on or after Feb. 1,

2010, in North Carolina that involves pyrotechnics should be conducted by a properly trained operator with a North Carolina permit. The N.C. General Assembly passed Senate Bill 563 (and corresponding House Bill 58-82 A-1) after a Fourth of July pyrotechnic explosion on Okracoke Island that killed four operators and injured another. “After the accident on Okracoke Island, I was shocked to learn that North Carolina had no permitting process for pyrotechnic operators,” said

Goodwin. “I know this was upsetting to the public as well. My staff and I immediately began working with members of the General Assembly to craft legislation to resolve this. We believe with this new permit, the public and fireworks professionals will be safer in North Carolina.” Anyone with questions regarding the permitting process, or to view class schedules, should visit www. and click on the Pyrotechnic Operator Certification Information banner.

According to N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper, a pilot program which began in March of last year to give low-income North Carolinians free access to needed prescription drugs has been expanded to serve residents statewide. The program, administered by NC MedAssist, has created a mail-order central pharmacy to provide free brand name and generic drugs. The drugs are donated by participating pharmaceutical companies. The program is funded for the first year by a grant of $873,000 from Cooper’s Consumer Protection and Education Fund. “The NC MedAssist program is designed to help the thousands of people in our state ease that dangerous burden of choosing between everyday necessities in life — buying groceries, paying the utility bill or filling a prescription,� said Jason Baisden, executive director of the N.C. Association of Free Clinics. “Having prescription medications to help maintain a healthy lifestyle is a necessity.� “The growing number of uninsured in North Carolina — which currently is nearly 1 in 5 — face challenges ev-

The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office added four to the fugitive watch list. Jonathan Levi Birchhall, 30, of 3637 Shady Brook Drive, Franklinville, is wanted for failure to appear on charges alleging trafficking and opium-heroin possession. He is 6 feet tall and weighs 180 pounds. Reanna Joy Rainey Blake, 27, of 35419 Dry Road, Lot 12, Albermarle, is wanted for larceny of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and driving while license revoked. She is about 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. Brandon Darrell Jent, 24, of 869 Teresa Way, Asheboro, is wanted for failure to appear on charges alleging breaking and/or entering and felony larceny. He is 5 feet, 6

inches tall and weighs 148 pounds. Jessica Arlene Yarborough, 18, of 4404 Earnhardt Road, Asheboro, is wanted for failure to appear on charges alleging communicating threats and injury to property. She is 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighs about 115 pounds. Anyone who has information about the whereabouts of the four should call 6727463. Callers do not have to give a name; a code number will be assigned. Tips that lead to the arrest of suspects, as well as the recovery of stolen property and drugs, are eligible for cash rewards, which are paid to tipsters on an anonymous basis.

ery day in accessing medications that can improve their health status,� said Dr. Pam Silberman, president and CEO of the North Carolina Institute of Medicine. “The NC MedAssist program will greatly enhance the ability of low-income and uninsured people to access the medications they desperately need.� Adults and children living at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level as well as adults and children who do not qualify for Medicaid, Department of Veterans Affairs or private health insurance may be eligible. Medicare Part D participants who fall in the “donut hole� may be eligible after consultation with NC MedAssist. Eligible North Carolinians can now enroll with NC MedAssist using one application form rather than applying with each drug company. The program has partnered with pharmaceutical companies such as Novartis, Eli Lilly and AstraZeneca to bulk ship drugs to one central location. The central pharmacy run by NC MedAssist keeps both brand name and generic drugs in stock, and can ship medications directly to participants’ homes. An enrollment packet is available from the NC MedAssist website at, or by calling 1-866-331-1348.

He plays cards in a scene with Dylan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoyed it,â&#x20AC;? said Lewallen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been in one of them deals.â&#x20AC;? He appears again in a twist at the end of the video. Retired highway patrolman Robert Harper, wearing an authentic period uniform and driving a 1947 Buick patrol car, sneaks up to the still. Lewallen is one of the moonshiners who runs away. The former chief of police says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m usually doing the chasing!â&#x20AC;? Fans can watch the video online at watch?v=P3R5p1V34pQ. The movie soundtrack is scheduled for release in a few months and Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CD is available now on his Web site.

Built in 1947 as one of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original dirt tracks, North Wilkesboro Speedway crowned the very first NASCAR champion in 1949,

with more than 50 years of racing until its closure in 1996. In 2009, the Speedway reawakened with a 3-year lease and runs ASA, PASS and USAR series races. As part of the partnership, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Red Dirt Risingâ&#x20AC;? filmed scenes at Historic North Wilkesboro Speedway and NASCAR legend Junior Johnson appeared in his first ever music video. Racing legend Bill Blair also made a cameo appearance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Red Dirt Risingâ&#x20AC;? producers plan a special showing of the movie at the historic speedway later this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great honor for us and a historical event for all of us here at Historic North Wilkesboro Speedway to be given the opportunity to (show) â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Red Dirt Rising,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Alton McBride of Speedway Associates. Winter weather postponed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Matt Dylanâ&#x20AC;? CD release party, originally scheduled for last weekend, to Saturday, Feb. 20, at Johnny and Juneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Winston-Salem.
