N.C. 62 dangerous for pedestrians P

edestrians on N.C. 62 walk at risk on the highly traveled road. A 13-year-old was seriously injured March 23 near the same site another youth was killed more than 10 years ago.

BY KATHY STUART

According to an accident report from Archdale police, the youth was attempting to cross from 229 Liberty Road at Archdale Holiness Church of God about 2:53 p.m., possibly to visit a friend who lived across the street, said a witness. A vehicle traveling west struck the youth on the left leg. “He went up into the air,” said Brenda Corders of Liberty, who stopped to help the boy. “He jumped up and picked up his left leg, which gave way.” She supported his neck while a passenger in her vehicle called 911. He was transported to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. As of last Thursday, he was listed in good condition. The driver of the vehicle which hit the youth was not charged. In the fatal accident near Liberty Road Apartments, a youth, hidden from view by a passing truck, attempted to cross. The vehicle hit the boy, who was knocked to the ground and became tangled up underneath the vehicle. The boy was dragged for several feet before the driver stopped. Another fatal accident occurred about 15 years ago on Halloween night when a youth on a bicycle was struck near Brookwood Apartments. With increased traffic since the fatal accidents, pedestrians on N.C. 62 should be cautious, warned Archdale Chief of Police Darrell Gibbs. As of 2007, the traffic count was about 6,700 between Main Street and Brookwood Apartments. The road lacks sidewalks and pedestrians often have to walk on the roadway because the narrow shoulders drop into a ditch. Officers sometimes stop pedestrians to make them aware of the dangers, said Gibbs.

One truck, yes. Two trucks, maybe, says Trinity T

rinity leaders are still unsure if they will allow truck drivers to park more than one tractor-trailer rig on their property, even if they applied for a permit within the 30-day deadline. BY ROBYN HANKINS The Council discussed the permits at a special meeting held March 25, but took no action. Public comment was not allowed at the meeting. In September, the Council passed an ordinance which banned tractor-trailer parking in the city, except for zoned areas. That ordinance was placed under an enforce-

Proposed criteria as of March 25 • Property where the truck is parked must be owned by the trucker or a family member who resides at the home. • The truck cannot be a leased truck. It must be owned by a trucker or a

ment moratorium in October after truckers protested that they could not park at their homes. At the Feb. 16 meeting, Council members set a stipulation that all truck drivers must obtain a permit to park at their homes. Drivers had until March 18 to apply for the

family member who resides at the home. • The trucker must have applied for the permit by the March 18 deadline. • The truck driver must have a valid CDL.

permit. However, the city could not issue permits to the 46 people who applied because the permits were not defined by ordinance. At the special meeting, Council discussed what the permits should and should not allow. The consensus was to allow all

previously existing truckers who applied for a permit to continue to park at their homes. Questions arose over whether to allow two or more trucks to park on the same property — even if both trucks are owned by the property owner. City Manager Ann Bailie told the NEWS the Council’s consensus was to permit the property owner regardless of the number of tractor-trailer rigs on the property, with no distinction between residential zones and elsewhere. That includes trailers, she added. SEE PERMITS ON PAGE 4

Please include a local address and telephone number.

With all this talk about health-care reform, I decided to do my own research. In a newspaper article, Sen. Hagan said she was disappointed about health care bickering and that it could be easily be solved if representatives would spend more time in D.C. and less time in their home states. Apparently she wants less time here in North Carolina. In an e-mail to Hagan, I wrote that I don’t want more Washington influence here at home, I want less. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, H.R. 3590, is a fiscally responsible plan that will reduce the deficit by nearly $132 billion in the next 10 years,” her e-mail reply stated. She wrote nothing about the cost, $848 billion over the next 10 years, which will be offset by new taxes and revenues. Hagan reiterated that the cost of malpractice insurance would save money, that no rationing of health care would occur, and I should go to http://thomas.loc.gov/ for a better understanding of the facts. Well how about that! All this time I thought that we were still under a representative government! The majority of North Carolinians never backed this bill and the facts were never dis-

Constituent praises Coble’s stand To the editor, I want to thank my Congressman Howard Coble for standing up against the Obama Healthcare Plan this past weekend. At a time when Americans are outraged at their government because it seems the majority of our legislators do not listen to the people they are supposed to represent, I am proud that Congressman Coble listens to his constituents and votes accordingly. Congressman Coble comes home every weekend to be with the people he represents so well. He can be found

at parades, barbeques, town meetings, grand openings, meeting with constituents, eating breakfast at the local restaurant, and he is never too busy to say hello and ask how you are doing. He cares, at a time when it feels like no one else does. I wish we had 434 Representatives just like him. I am pleased and honored to call Howard Coble my Congressman, and that is why I will vote for him on May 4.

closed. Many representatives voted for this bill without reading it, because the bill was held back in Congress. I called and talked with Rep. Howard Coble, Sen. Richard Burr, as well as others in Congress and all said that this was a bad bill! Reform is needed, but this was not the way to do it. The bill is too expensive, it is not well thought out and just not the right time. This nation is in the middle of hard times. Neighbors are out of work and losing their homes and benefits. The nation’s deficits are astronomical and ballooning out of control to the point of destruction. Spending another trillion at this time is criminal. The number of unemployed is hovering around 12 percent in North Carolina. However, that number does not give a clear picture. People have run out of benefits and have given up trying to find a job. Some are underemployed, and are no longer counted as being unemployed. A more likely number is about 20 to 23 percent. Who will pay their insurance premiums? It will probably take two to three years to regain the employment numbers that we had, but without employers like GM, Ford and the aircraft industry, all the manufacturing jobs will never come back, and that’s where wealth was made. My job is in transportation. The company has fewer employees and has no intention of hiring in the near future. Until trucking picks up, our economy will not, and unem-

ployment will not improve. And, well, I don’t feel that requiring small businesses to provide insurance benefits for their employees is going to stimulate job growth. Like many good southerners, I like to drink tea but I am not at all interested in attending a tea party. My belief is that the proper way to communicate my opinion is to contact my representatives. Their recent decision takes Congress from a representational government to a dictatorial government. I want my country back and our jobs back from China, Mexico and other countries. Unfortunately, I don’t see that happening. I’m done. I’m getting off my soapbox. I know that there are no easy answers. Now I have something in common with Kay Hagan — I’m disappointed, too.

Landfill proposal could save taxpayers some ‘cha-ching’ I

f the Randolph County landfill becomes a regional facility, it could mean a 2- to 3-cent tax decrease.

BY ROBYN HANKINS The Randolph County Commissioners discussed the possible ramifications of expanding the landfill and accepting solid waste from other counties at their annual retreat, held March 20 at Randolph Community College in Asheboro. Public Works Director David Townsend broached the subject of expanding the county landfill off of Henley Country Road. “It may be time for Randolph County to consider opening a regional facility,” Townsend told the Commissioners. “We’re only using 275 acres out of 600. There are not a lot of neighbors, no subdivisions, it has lots of natural buffers and is downstream (from residences).” Townsend added that typically the host county pays no tipping fees, and that he knew Chatham County and the city of Greensboro were looking for a new place to ship solid waste. “Internally, we don’t have enough to make (expansion) cost effective,” he added. “But if we accept out-of-town waste, that

changes everything.” “We could reduce taxes by 2 to 3 percent,” mused Commissioner Phil Kemp. “It’s already going past us,” said Commissioner Darrell Frye, who represents Archdale and Trinity. “Asheboro is the center of the state, the highways go north to south and east to west. The trucks (carrying other counties’ waste) are already passing us.” Kemp pointed out that nearby residents concerned about well contamination could be easily connected to municipal water because the pipes are in place. Those counties could save on fuel costs and vehicle maintenance by delivering their trash to Asheboro, Frye added. Moreover, by becoming a regional facility, Randolph County would not only make money, it would save money. According to its 2009-2010 budget, Randolph County pays $44 per ton, more than $2 million per year, in tipping fees. Most of this money is paid to Montgomery County, which is where Randolph County sends its 250 tons of garbage each day. The state also charges $2 per ton for administrative costs. Waste is transported out of county because Randolph County’s

landfill, closed in 1997, is unlined. The state requires landfills be lined to protect the environment, and landfills across the state had to convert to transfer stations unless they spent the money to upgrade their facilities. Townsend said to break even the county would need to receive 750 tons of garbage per day, but that as a regional facility it could make significantly more money if it took in closer to 2,000 tons per day. The permitting process for a lined landfill can take up to four years. However, Townsend said the actual construction would only take six to eight months. “We need to think 20 to 30 years down the road,” he added. “Garbage is not going away and locating landfills is getting harder.” As a regional facility, Randolph County could also produce enough methane gas to sell. “Sixty percent of Randolph County’s waste is industrial and does not create methane,” he explained. “But if we become a regional facility, it’s a whole new ball game.” The Commissioners want citizen input on this issue. To submit an opinion, call 819-3300 or visit www.co.randolph.nc.us.

PERMITS

Continued from front

“The question is, can we continue to allow more than one truck? That violates our existing zoning ordinance,” Bailie explained. According to the city’s zoning ordinance, parking two or more tractor-trailer rigs on one property constitutes a trucking terminal — which is not allowed in residential areas. Bailie said City Attorney Bob Wilhoit was investigating the city’s options. “We’re either gonna allow this or not,” Councilman Robbie Sikes pointed out during the nearly two-hour long meeting. “Let’s move ahead, we’ve tied up too much time with it already.” “If we stay with the motion I made and answer the questions asked about tractors and trailers (provided by city staff), to me that’s the simplest way,” said Councilman Kelly Grooms. Grooms later added that a neighborhood can enforce restrictive covenants where tractor-trailer rigs are prohibited. Grooms’ motion, made at the February meeting, to permit existing truckers only, required that the trucker own the property and the truck. At the meeting, however, Council agreed that trucks owned by spouses or children, who can prove residency at the property and who have a valid commercial driver’s license, are eligible for a permit. The Council also agreed that leased trucks are ineligible for a permit, but trucks and trailers can be replaced. The city’s stormwater ordinances already prohibit illicit discharge or motor oil, anti-freeze and other substances, said Stormwater Administrator Rich Baker, but Council agreed to duplicate the language in the ordinance. This means that truckers cannot perform major maintenance on their trucks while parked at the residence. Baker also pointed out that trailers containing hazardous material are not allowed to park outside designated areas by federal law, so it is not necessary to include that in the ordinance. According to Bailie, the permits will have to be renewed every year. Permits will not be renewed if the driver does not own a truck at the time of renewal, if the property where the truck is parked changes ownership, if the driver loses his or her CDL or if the property owner receives two or more city zoning citations. Council will hold a public hearing on this at its next regular meeting set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 20.

Persistence

“Capturing the Moments of a Lifetime� alsphotography@triad.rr.com www.alsphotographyonline.com

The ability to stick to a task or project until completion is a valuable trait in a world where many tasks are difficult and don’t go smoothly the first time around. Thomas Edison is said to have tried literally thousands of materials for the filament of the electric light bulb before hitting on carbonized cotton thread as the proper material. How much longer would humans have toiled in darkness had it not been for his dogged persistence? Indeed, it could be argued that civilization would not be possible without this virtue. Perseverance is undoubtedly a useful virtue, but we must be careful that we don’t fall into perseveration, the knee-jerk repetition of a particular response, even when that response is not working. So, we should be smart in our persistence and keep at it, but don’t continue “beating our head against the wall� when our approach is not working. We should be willing to modify our approach and think about what is required to solve our problem. And remember that in some areas of life, such as working with people, patience and persistence are especially called for. Recall that when Jesus was asked how many times we should forgive our brother who has sinned against us, He is effectively saying that we should never stop forgiving.

“How Are People Re-Discovering a 115-Year-Old Technique that May Help Chronic Painâ€? Dear friend, Grover Cleveland was President when the main procedure used in my profession was discovered. You may think that’s a bit antiquated, but why change something that has such a dramatic success rate and has been getting sick and hurting people well since 1895? People are often impressed with highly sophisticated, “cutting edgeâ€? therapies and drugs; that kind of thing certainly gets attention. But, in my ofďŹ ce, I’m not going to try to impress you with fancy technology. However, you’re likely to be even more impressed with the results you may get. It’s results that count. Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections. The people that often come to see me have been everywhere else ďŹ rst, and wound up with huge medical bills, and are still no better off. Often, they may have been subjected to medications that may have only served to temporarily mask symptoms. That’s not what most people are looking for. Before I go on and tell you more, let me tell you something about me. Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. Twenty years ago I started college, but I was overwhelmed by intense migraine headaches that were getting worse. They made it nearly impossible to study. The medical doctors just gave me pills and said it would go away, but they didn’t. In my case they came on slowly, over years, but they worsened to the point where I could barely function. Most of my time was spent lying down in a dark room, taking handfuls of painkillers. I felt like giving up. A friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The chiropractor did an exam, took some ďŹ lms, and then adjusted my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I got relief, and I ďŹ nally felt like myself again. It felt great to throw away that bottle of pills. In fact, it worked so well that not only did I ďŹ nish college but I went on to chiropractic school myself. For the last ten years, people from Thomasville and the surrounding area have come to see me with their headache problems. They also come to me with their: s#ARPAL4UNNEL s-IGRAINES s.ECK0AIN s3HOULDER!RM0AIN

Here’s what some of my patients had to say: I thought that there was no way anyone could help my problem and that I would have to live with it.

Of course, all people respond differently to care, but we get terriďŹ c results. It’s as simple as that! Chiropractic is probably the most misunderstood health care profession there is. It is about working with, and enhancing the body’s natural healing abilities. Chiropractors ďŹ nd and remove interference in the nerve system, which allows the body to respond better. As misunderstood as it is, the studies speak for themselves, like the Virginia study that showed THATOVEROFPATIENTSWHOSAWACHIROPRACtor were satisďŹ ed with their results. That’s just incredible!

Jon and Ashley’s bucket list

‘Cycle across America’ L

ife is not about a destination, it’s about the journey, say Jon Greer and Ashley Briggs. While their destination is California, their journey represents an effort to help people with disabilities.

& ‘Make a difference’

BY DEBBIE HIGHTOWER Jon and Ashley left Trinity March 22 to pedal to Florida and then to California. As ofTuesday, they had made their way to Savannah, Ga. The trek will cover hundreds of miles, take exceptional endurance and discipline. “There are people out there who will never get to do this,” said Jon — people like Ashley’s 7-year-old nephew Elijah, who was diagnosed with Asberger’s Syndrome. Because of early intervention and therapies, Elijah will have the chance to enjoy a relatively normal life. Jon and Ashley want more people with disabilities to enjoy a fulfilling life and believe they can make a difference with this journey through Push America, a nonprofit which benefits children with special needs through specific projects like building camps, playgrounds and wheelchair ramps. Along the way, the couple will do guest appearances and volunteer work for Push America. Their desire to help those with special needs intertwines with another objective — fulfillment of a “bucket list.” “Everyone has things they want to do someday,” said Ashley. “If you don’t at least plan on doing it, it may never happen.” At the top of the bucket list is cycle across America, at the bottom is make a difference and what’s in between — that’s good stuff, too. They hope to bungee jump, go hot air ballooning and hang gliding as well as enjoy swimming with dolphins, petting a baby elephant, or being kissed by a giraffe. Right now, their emphasis is on the first and last objectives. Ashley has been on the last objective for years now. “Due to my experiences with Elijah, I have a big place in my heart for children with special needs,” said Ashley. “This motivated me to earn a degree in special education. “During college, I was lucky enough to get a job as a CAP (Community Alternative Program) worker.” This experience reaffirmed Ashley’s desire to work with special needs children. “I have had the opportunity to work closely with many amazing children who had all types of disabilities,” Ashley

said. Ashley, 22, a native of Thomasville, graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2009. She not only holds a bachelor’s degree in special education, but also in elementary education. Although she wants to dedicate her life to teaching children with disabilities, she decided to delay her entry into teaching for a year until the bicycle trip is over. Jon, 25, a Trinity High School graduate, is a graphic design artist. Neither of them is an experienced cyclist and, until four months ago, Ashley had never owned a bicycle without training wheels. “A year ago if someone would have told me I was about to venture off into the unknown and ride a bike, that I don’t have, across the country, well, I would have laughed in their face,” said Ashley. How long the journey will take is unknown. As of last Wednesday, the couple were in South Carolina and had camped out in a family’s backyard. “We are riding our bikes from North Carolina, through Florida to California,” Jon said. “We are not sure exactly how long this adventure might take.” The idea to cycle across the country was Jon’s. “I’ve always wanted to travel and see everything there is to see,” he said. “I ran the idea by [Ashley] one night and she fell in love with it.” The two want to fulfill this dream before the responsibility of careers and children obligate them to stay in one place. The couple spent six months planning, preparing and saving money for the challenging trip. Dave Clodfelter, at Spinz Bicycle Shop, gave them instructions on basic bike repair as well as how to change tires. The couple trained at Archdale Family Fitness. Jon and Ashley are thrilled about their journey, but know realistically they face challenges. They have promised to check in with their families frequently. “Our parents are supportive, but they’re worried,” said Ashley. During practice rides, Ashley fell and required surgery. Even packing for the trip was a challenge.

They carry saddlebag-like containers called panniers. Because of limited space in their panniers, Jon and Ashley spent two months carefully selecting their clothing and camping equipment. And then ... there’s the 30-mile incline to the Grand Canyon. “We don’t really know what we’re getting ourselves into,” Jon writes on the Web site. “We know this is going to be one of the hardest things we‘ve ever done. “But you know what, we can do it. The quote on the main page of our Web site is one from T.S. Eliot ‘Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.’ ” With planning and a little research and help from friends, Jon and Ashley are taking the steps to make a dream come true — one check at a time on the bucket list. “Even though we are a little afraid, we aren’t going to let fear rule our lives,” wrote Jon.

Want to follow Jon and Ashley? Jon Greer and Ashley Briggs of Trinity are pedaling from North Carolina to Florida to California to benefit Push America, a nonprofit which benefits children with special needs. Donations to Push America may be made from the Project Live Web site — http://project-live.org/. “At the end of our trip, 10 percent of all the money donated from our Web site will be given to the Autism Society of America, and will specifically help families affected by autism,” Jon said. They want the community to follow their journey. “We will be documenting our trip on our Web site through means of pictures, videos, daily journals and a pretty detailed map of our route,” said Jon. “We will get the chance to share most of our experience with the world.” Readers may follow on the Project Live Web site at http://project-live.org or follow Jonathan N’ Ashley on Facebook. “We will need encouragement in any form possible — a handshake, a “way to go” or anything,” said Jon. “If you know any way of helping us out let us know and it will

CIS partners with Rotary W

hen Joyce Metters decided to get her husband, Kenny, a flat screen TV for Father’s Day last year, she thought she was going to go to a ‘big box’ store and shell out ‘big bucks.’ STAFF REPORTS

Instead, she won Kenny’s gift in a drawing held by Communities In Schools of Randolph County. “My daughter thought the message they left on my answering machine (that I had won a TV) was a joke,” Joyce explained. “So I had to tell him before Father’s Day. He had a great Father’s Mark and Mary Jane Akerman of Archdale won the Apple Day!” This year, CIS iPod last year. is again sponsoring a drawing for a 55-inch flat screen TV and the Randolph Rotary Club’s new member committee is partnering with them. Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20. Rotarian David Whitaker explained that each club is expected to have a charitable project each year. This year, the group decided to support CIS’s BackPack Pals program. Proceeds from sales of those tickets will be so designated. Archdale’s Mark and Mary Jane Akerman were runners-up in last year’s drawing. They won an Apple iPod. This year’s second prize is a 10.1 Toshiba netbook. CIS will draw this year’s winners on Saturday, May 22, at the conclusion of their “Readin’, Writin’ and Ridin’” motorcycle event. For more information or tickets, contact Whitaker at 629-3250 (Able Signs) or CIS at 625-0008 or cisrc@randolph.k12.nc.us. Joyce Metters hopes her husband does not expect a similar Father’s Day gift again this year. “But,” she says, “I am going to buy another ticket.”
