Randolph County: hardest budget in years R
andolph County Commissioner Darrell Frye said that the 20102011 budget, approved at $110 million, is the hardest one he has faced in years. The budget includes a 3.1 cent property tax increase, a $4.1 million fund balance transfer, a 6 percent cut for departments and a 3 percent cut for schools. BY ROBYN HANKINS The budget, $110,193,510, was approved June 21 in a 3-2 vote. The county’s property tax rate will go from 55.5 cents per $100 valuation to 58.6 cents per $100 beginning July 1. “I don’t like any tax increase and we worked hard to get it down,” said Frye. In addition to a 6 percent cut in depart-

Archdale approves law to regulate sweepstake centers
statewide ban on sweepstakes businesses would have little effect on the budgets of Archdale and Trinity. BY ELIZABETH SAUNDERS As the Archdale City Council prepared to consider regulations on electronic gaming, the N.C. Senate approved a ban on video sweepstakes games June 21. The bill moves to the House next for consideration. The Winston-Salem Council passed a budget that included $400,000 of tax revenue from “Internet cafes” and “business centers.” If the bill banning these businesses passes in the House, the city will be forced to find that money elsewhere. Archdale did not factor such revenue in its budget, nor did Trinity. Sweepstakes centers in Archdale may feel the pinch instead. Business license fees of $500 per machine for electronic gaming, including sweepstakes, take effect today (July 1). Sweepstakes centers have popped up at various locations in the city, but future businesses will be restricted. At the June 22 meeting, Council approved a zoning ordinance that limits hours to midnight, limits the number of terminals to 20, adds parking and location requirements for new businesses and prohibits alcohol. No one spoke at the public hearing.

Get to Archdale’s
ourth of July fireworks start at 9:30 p.m. at Creekside Park, depending on when it rains, Archdale Parks and Recreation Director Elaine Albertson said. The comment drew some laughs at the June 22 Archdale City Council meeting because rain has been a factor at every Fourth of July in recent memory. Somehow, the rain has never dampened the spirit nor the number of people who attend.
Last year, it was a Fourth of July “madhouse,” Albertson 3 p.m. Amusements said.

This year, with DOT tweaking stop lights, it should take about 15 minutes.

Mustangs all-stars aim for Texas C
oaches with Archdale Parks and Recreation’s Mustang League voted on the league’s all-star players, who set a goal — get to Texas. BY TOM MCGEE Mustang League volunteer
To select the all-stars, coaches reviewed team statistics, player batting averages, positions, practice work habits and attitudes. The top eight vote getters were elected to the team and the championship winning coach. Reds’ coach Brian Marshall selected the additional four players. Marshall was praised as a dedicated community volunteer who doesn’t even have a kid playing in this age bracket. Marshall’s staff includes veteran assistant coach Eric Krpejs, whose team tied for the regular season championship, Jimmy Blair and Dale Proctor. The team’s ﬁrst rounds will be played at Creekside Park
the week of July 12. As of Friday, the start date had not been determined. The winning team will advance to Virginia Beach, Va. then to Pittsburgh, Penn., and on to Texas for the national championship. Members of the Mustang League all-stars include Tristan Eppley, Josh Blair, Ryan Johnson and Garrett Allen, members of the Reds; Zach Krpejs, Tyler Swiggett, Cole McCrary and Colyn Grissom, from the Phillies; Landon Smith of the Rockies; Tanner McGee from the Cubs; Monroe Presnell from the Pirates; Chase Nicks from the Braves; and Koty Proctor from the Mets. If you happen to ride by Creekside Park on a weeknight, it’s late and the lights are still on, the team is working hard and trying to do two things — practice at a cooler time of the day and “GET TO TEXAS.” If the warm-up tournament win (23-8) at Level Cross is any indication, the Mustang League all-stars are on their way.
Never leave a child alone in a vehicle S afe Kids Randolph County wants to increase awareness and urges caregivers to never leave children alone in a vehicle, said Shea Cox of Randolph County Health Department. She also serves as coordinator for the health department’s effort — Safe Kids Randolph County.
Safe Kids Randolph County works to prevent unintentional child injury. Their goal is to have no more children die from heat stroke when they are “forgotten” in cars. “Always check for sleeping children before leaving a vehicle,” warns Cox. While a child in Randolph County has not died of hyperthermia in a vehicle, Cox said nationally there have been 19 deaths in 2010, the most recent June 27 in Arizona. Between 1998 and 2010, some 463 children died from heat stroke because they were left unattended in vehicles that became too hot for them to survive. “A child’s core body temperature rises three to ﬁve times faster than an adult’s and unattended children have no way of protecting themselves in a hot vehicle,” said Cox. “The overall goal of this campaign is to make sure no more children will die in 2010 because they were unattended in a vehicle. We want parents and caregivers to take precautions so that this tragedy does not happen to them.” More than 50 percent of the children who died from heat stroke were forgotten by a caring adult who became distracted when they left the vehicle. Thirty percent of kids who died from hyperthermia were left unattended by an adult or gained entry into an unlocked vehicle and became trapped and overcome by heat. It takes only minutes for a child to be at risk of death or serious, permanent injury in a hot car. “Drivers must keep car doors locked and keys out of reach from young children,” Cox said. Safe Kids Randolph County urges all adults who trans-
port children to take the following steps: • Call 911 if a child is found unattended in a vehicle. • Never leave children alone in a car, even for one minute. • Set your cell phone or Blackberry reminder to be sure you drop your child off at daycare. • Set your computer e-mail program to ask you, “Did you drop off at daycare today?” • Place a cell phone, PDA, purse, briefcase, gym bag or whatever is to be carried from the car on the ﬂoor in front of the child in a back seat. This forces the adult to open the back door and observe the child. • Have a plan with your child care provider to call if your child does not arrive when expected. • Keep keys and remote entry key fobs out of children’s reach. • Always lock vehicles. • If a child goes missing, check cars and trunks ﬁrst. For more information on preventing hyperthermia deaths, call Safe Kids Randolph County at 819-3198 or visit www.safekids.org/nlyca. Safe Kids Randolph County works to prevent unintentional childhood injury, the leading cause of death and disability to children ages 1-18. Safe Kids Randolph County is a member of Safe Kids Worldwide, a global network of organizations dedicated to preventing unintentional injury. Safe Kids Randolph County was founded in 2009 and is led by the Randolph County Health Department.

Archdale RCC to beneďŹ t from Duke Energy grant T
he Duke Energy Community College Grant Program provided $248,222 for Randolph Community Collegeâ€™s welding for the workplace program. The money will be used to purchase and install state-of-the-industry welding equipment and a welding simulator at the Archdale Center. The grant was one of four the college has received. Together, they will support two curriculum programs, an internal lighting project and RCCâ€™s library services. The college sought the extra funding in order to supplement state and local funding. Officials with the Duke Energy Community College Grant Program said budgetary constraints present challenges to top-rated community and technical colleges. The funding will provide a financial boost that will enable RCC to extend its expertise, provide rewarding opportunities for students and, ultimately, help revitalize manufacturing in the Carolinas. According to Anne Hockett, vice president for instructional services, the welding program will take over Building B at the Archdale Center and RCC will soon offer a one-year welding diploma program in addition to continuing education welding courses. This will allow current welders to upgrade their skills and become certified in four types of welding. The college is partnering with Superior Mechanical Inc. in Randleman
as part of the program to meet the companyâ€™s need for trained welders. RCC also received a $200,000 grant from the Golden LEAF Foundation. It will be used to purchase machining equipment for the machining technology program. The Golden LEAF Foundation supports activities that will improve social and economic conditions in economically affected or tobacco-dependent regions of the state. The two new pieces of machining equipment, a HAAS VF-2 CNC Machining Center and a HAAS ST-20 CNC Turning Center, will be located temporarily in the existing Machining lab in the Administration and Education Center on the Asheboro Campus. â€œThese new machines will allow our students to train in areas of hightech, advanced manufacturing,â€? said Mitchell Kiser, chair of the Industrial, Engineering and Transportation Division at RCC. The equipment will be relocated to the new Continuing Education and Industrial Center in the old Klaussner Furniture building after renovations are completed. Several local manufacturers had indicated the equipment would be vital in training future employees needed for their workforces. RCC also received $154,410 from the N.C. Department of Commerceâ€™s State Energy Office to install more energy efficient lighting and lighting control panels at the Asheboro Campus. The funds were provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the economic stimulus
package, and are designed to encourage energy conservation. Cindi Goodwin, RCC director of facilities, said the use of T-8 lighting and lighting control technology in a 20,000-square-foot addition to the Archdale Center in 2006 saved the College an estimated $5,780 in energy costs the first year. RCC has worked toward implementing energy conservation projects since 2004, but didnâ€™t have the funds to complete re-lamping and installing occupancy sensors throughout the Asheboro Campus. â€œWith the assistance of the State Energy Office grant, our College can complete this project and save 1,774,937,476 BTUs and an estimated $73,461 in energy costs per year,â€? she said. In addition, RCCâ€™s library will receive a $23,935 grant from the State Library of North Carolina to improve and increase access to the Internet. Currently, the library on the Asheboro Campus has 17 Internet work stations and availability has been increasingly strained by the schoolâ€™s growing student population and community use. There are currently 605 community residents registered at the RCC Library, and a three-hour time limit is enforced for county visitors to ensure adequate access for students. Funds from this grant will be used to purchase 26 new computers and monitors for Internet access, an additional pair of computers to replace existing print servers and two flatbed scanners.

Counterfeit check scams can start with an ofﬁcial-looking letter, a call from a telemarketer, a job offer or a response to something people have posted online, like a resume or an item for sale. In all of these scenarios, people are asked to deposit the check and then wire the money elsewhere. But the check turns out to be fake, and any money they’ve wired comes out of their own pocket. There are three main types of counterfeit check scams:
to evaluate the wire service company. A related scheme claims to offer work as a payment processor for an overseas company. Consumers who respond are sent money orders or checks to deposit and then asked to wire the funds back to the company. In exchange, they’re promised a cut of the money. One North Carolina consumer recently told our ofﬁce that she got caught up in this scam after responding to a job posted on Craigslist. She interviewed for the job by online chat and then received an e-mail telling her to expect a check for $2,700. She was told to cash the check, keep $200 as a bonus, purchase software with $400 and wire the remaining $1,100 to someone in San Francisco. Fortunately, her bank spotted the check as a fake and she didn’t lose any money. Overpayment Scams
The classic counterfeit check scam starts with the news that the recipient has just won an unexpected prize of as much as $1 million. Along with the announcement comes a very legitimate-looking check that’s supposed to cover taxes and fees on the prize. Instructions say to deposit the check and then wire the money back to the sweepstakes in order to claim the winnings. After the person sends the money, the check turns out to be phony — but the scammer already has the money. Secret Shopper and Payment Processor Scams
Another kind of counterfeit check scam starts with an advertisement, a telemarketing call or an e-mail promising well-paid work as a secret or mystery shopper. People who respond get a check to deposit and instructions to wire the money back as a way
In yet another type of counterfeit check scam, scammers respond to people who’ve posted items for sale on websites such as eBay and Craigslist. They claim to be interested in buying the item, then send a certiﬁed check for more than the purchase price and ask the seller to wire back the overage. Once again, the checks used in these scams look real but turn out to be fake. While scams like these have been popular with international fraud rings for years, advances in printing technology mean that crooks can now make very convincing counterfeit checks. Sometimes, the scammers include fraud warnings and consumer protection brochures to make their phony checks more believable. Even banks can have a hard time spotting the checks as fakes because they often use the name and account number of
Roy Cooper North Carolina Attorney General a legitimate company. The Attorney General’s ofﬁce hears from hundreds of North Carolinians each year about counterfeit checks. We’ve helped negotiate agreements with Western Union and MoneyGram to make it harder for con artists to use wire services to steal money. We’re working with law enforcement across the country and around the world to investigate fraud rings, and making bankers, wire companies and consumers more aware of these scams. Sometimes our ofﬁce can help consumers before they become victims. For example, a woman in western North Carolina almost wired $30,000 to scammers in Holland who had sent her counterfeit checks. Fortunately, her bank caught onto the scam and persuaded her to call our ofﬁce instead. Not all consumers are so lucky. Scam artists’ fake checks sometimes ﬁnd real victims in North Carolina who lose thousands of dollars. If you receive a possible counterfeit check or gets a call or letter that looks like one of these scams should not respond. Instead, report the scam to my ofﬁce by calling 1-877-5-NO-SCAM, toll-free within North Carolina.
Trinity budget sufﬁcient to include salary increases
rinity’s 2010-2011 budget, as approved, includes the possibility of a merit increase for each employee. The reason the city is in a position to offer this, said Councilman Tommy Johnson, is because of its ﬁnancial stability. BY ROBYN HANKINS Trinity City Council approved the $4.4 million 20102011 budget at their June 15 meeting. The only change involved proposed salary increases. Under the proposed budget, city employees would have
received a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), Christmas bonus and merit increase. The approved budget combines all three categories into one — merit increases. “The main reason for all of that is the people we have managing it and looking after it,” Johnson said. “We are in a very stable position. I think it is deserving.” COLA is a salary adjustment based on changes in the cost-of-living as determined by the U.S. Consumer Price Index. City Manager Ann Bailie said this change does not affect the proposed budget because it does not contain line items for the speciﬁc types of salary increases. “Changes in compensation are simply budgeted in the
$10.5 million budget approved with no tax increase
rchdale City Council passed its 20102011 budget of more than $10.5 million dollars with no increase in property tax.
BY ELIZABETH SAUNDERS As cities and states throughout the nation continued to anticipate reduced revenue from sales tax, Archdale cut its budget from last year’s approved total of $11.35 million. Ad valorem tax will remain at 29 cents per $100 of property value. Recycling and stormwater fees also remain the same, but water and sewer rates will rise about 7 percent. Archdale passed the budget despite eleventhhour complaints from a resident. During the open comments portion of the June 22 council meeting, Archdale resident William Gay spoke about the proposed increase in water and sewer fees. “We just got hit with Randolph County property tax, and now water and sewer,” he said. He later said that in 14 years, his water and sewer rate has tripled. City Manager Jerry Yarborough explained that the increases were needed to cover rising costs from providers, the City of High Point and Davidson Water Inc., as well as pay off capital investments like the water tank. The city passes the cost on to its customers, just like a business. Gay asked if city employees were going to get a cost of living raise. Yarborough replied no, but that merit raises up to 3 percent were budgeted. Gay mentioned the new park ranger position that was added for 2011. He said the city should cut its budget in other areas to keep from raising fees. “Why is the recreation at Creekside so important?” he asked, adding that he visits the park maybe twice a year.
Councilman Eddie Causey answered that Creekside provides recreation for children and citizens of Archdale and added that people can walk on the greenway for free. “Unfortunately, recreation will never break even.” Causey pointed out that some park fees have been raised for the coming year. Yarborough added that rising vandalism requires more security at the park, and that a part-time ranger was in last year’s budget; only part of the full-time salary has been added for this year. Mayor Bert Lance-Stone and Councilman Lewis Dorsett explained that the city has to have a balanced budget, and that water and sewer is a separate fund that has to pay for that system. It cannot rely on money from other areas. A woman who lives outside the city also spoke about high sewer rates. No one spoke at the May 25 public hearing.
City of Archdale
In other business, Council approved a plan to “write off” delinquent utility accounts and keep them in a separate reporting system. “We are not dismissing the accounts, we’re moving them [to a different database],” said Finance Director Lori Nurse. She added that a state system helps collect from delinquent customers who move away by garnishing their state tax refund or any lottery winnings. Council also approved a resolution to allow Allendale residents who are behind on their special tax assessment to continue making payments with interest. When Archdale installed water and sewer in that neighborhood, the agreement said that missed payments would result in an immediate balance due, leading to liens and possible foreclosure. Council’s waiver allows Nurse to continue working with nine people who are behind, but still making payments.
Senior center to coordinate fan giveaway
ome senior citizens and disabled adults may be eligible for free fans to be distributed by Archdale Senior Center.
The Randolph County Senior Adults Association has received a limited number of free 20-inch box fans that will be given on a ﬁrst come, ﬁrst served basis. Due to the limited amount of fans, those who received one last year will be put on a waiting list.
The fans are provided with funds donated by Progress Energy and Duke Energy. The Operation Fan/ Heat Relief Program is administered regionally by the Piedmont Triad Council of Government’s Area Agency on Aging. Dart Container Corp. also donated fans. Fans are available to Randolph County residents age 60 and over, and the disabled who have an existing home situation that presents a threat to the per-
son’s health and well-being. Seniors and the disabled must provide their name, date of birth, phone number and address. Disabled people under 60 must also provide proof of Social Security income or Medicare card. Fans may be picked up at a senior adult center. Archdale Senior Center is at 108 Park Drive. Call 431-1938. Randleman’s senior center is at 144 W. Academy St. Call 498-4332.
‘salaries’ line item within each department,” she said. The change does affect the budget message because it explains signiﬁcant parts of the budget. Bailie said she will write a letter that references the policy change and include it with all copies of the budget. Trinity’s property tax rate will remain at 10 cents per $100 valuation, but residents will see a 2.5 percent increase in municipal sewer fees. The sewer rate translates into an extra 84 cents per month for the average customer. Bailie said the increase was necessary because Archdale and Thomasville, the cities that handle Trinity’s wastewater, were raising their sewer rates again. Trinity did not raise sewer rates in 2009-2010.

“That means Randolph will get more lottery money,” Frye said. Randolph County government departments and Randolph County Schools had prepared for the cuts approved by the Commissioners. Matthew Lambeth, chairman of the Randolph County Board of Education, told the High Point Enterprise that the school board may consider furloughs for all employees and the elimination of staff development — anything to avoid classroom cuts. However, Donald Andrews, superintendant of Randolph County Schools, said any additional cuts would inevitably affect the classroom. “With all the cuts we’re facing, there’s no way not to have classroom cuts,” Andrews said. “One way or another all cuts will impact the classroom, probably negatively, either directly or indirectly. “We were anticipating more cuts,” he explained. “We have planned for more cuts, but have not shown them to the Board ... but we do have a Plan B.” No date has been set for that Board of Education meeting, Andrews continued, because they are waiting on the state budget to be ﬁnalized. He anticipates holding that meeting by July 15.
Frye said the Commissioners did consider a cut to the county library system, but decided not to because there were “no excess hours and limited personnel.” County departments are prepared for the 6 percent cuts. Departments had prepared two budgets, one with a 3 percent cut and the other with a 6 percent cut. The Commissioners also cut their allocation to Communities In Schools of Randolph County. For the past few years, CISRC has received $85,000 annually from the Randolph County Commissioners. The request this year was for $90,000 to help CISRC expand the number of comprehensive sites. Commissioners approved $60,000, a $25,000 cut from last year’s budget. CISRC Executive Director Sandi Norman said, “While we are grateful for all support, especially from the Randolph County Commissioners, this reduction will mean cuts in staff and/or cuts in services. Either way, it looks like it will be difﬁcult, if not impossible, to serve the same number of students as in 2009-2010. “The need, on the other hand, continues to grow. We hope the community — individuals, businesses, churches and others — will be generous, on their own, in support of our students.”
Continued from front
According to a June 23 article in the High Point Enterprise, some state lawmakers want to tax electronic gaming. Others want to continue the state’s attempts to stop general gambling, including a 2006 ban on video poker. Sweepstakes and business centers have been operating in a loophole of that law because customers pay for Internet time instead of putting money direct-
ly into the machines. Councilman Eddie Causey said that an all-out ban would not affect Archdale’s bottom line. “We don’t know what Raleigh’s going to do,” he said. “We didn’t count on anything in the budget from it.” Trinity does not have a privilege license system, so the city would not lose any revenue. So far, no sweepstakes centers have located in Trinity.
Correction In the June 24 edition, Anthony Bouldin was incorrectly named as the landscaper aiding Betty Brown, Archdale’s Green Thumb Award winner for June. The landscaper’s correct name is Jordan Bouldin. The City of Archdale and the NEWS apologize for the error.

n the universal language of facial expressions, a smile almost invariably expresses goodwill. A smile tells strangers that we are friendly and confirms to friends and family that they are in our good graces or that we are there to help. It costs nothing and yet confers benefits far beyond the small effort required to turn a frown into a smile. Smiles are contagious, spreading happiness like a beneficial virus. There is even evidence that smiles make their wearers happier, perhaps by supplying the brain with feedback from the face. How it works doesnâ€™t matter; what does matter is that smiling makes us feel happy and makes those around us feel happy too. Call to mind all that you have to be happy about and let yourself smile accordingly. Even better, smile at someone and spread the good feeling. And, if you donâ€™t have much to smile about at the moment, take heart and know that your problems are temporary and that God loves you.
In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Psalms 71:1 (KJV)

The world’s largest and most prestigious nurse credentialing organization has re-designated High Point Regional Health System as a Magnet facility for the third time, making it part of an elite group of facilities. There are only 29 facilities in the nation and two in the state to earn this honor three times. “The Magnet program recognizes health-care organizations that provide nursing excellence in quality patient care and innovations in professional nursing practice,” said Tammi Erving-Mengel, vice president and chief nursing ofﬁcer at High Point Regional. “Magnet Designation is the gold standard for nursing practice and our patients can feel conﬁdent they will receive the best care at our facility.” The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet designation is widely accepted as the gold standard of patient care. Applicants undergo an extensive evaluation and members who are awarded Magnet status must continue to maintain rigorous standards as part of their four-year designation. Research shows that Magnet hospitals are more effective at attracting and keeping quality nurses. To reapply for and receive Magnet status for an additional four years is conﬁrmation of the hospital’s resolve to deliver the highest level of care in nursing today.

Lowes Foods and Sprite give back to Habitat Randolph Countyâ€™s Habitat for Humanity chapter received a boost thanks to an $800 donation as part of the Lowes Foods/Sprite Tabs for Habitat promotion.

For each specially marked package of Sprite and Sprite Zero purchased during April, Coca-Cola North
