rchdale’s residential sewer customers who live outside the city limits are having a case of sticker shock. BY ELIZABETH SAUNDERS Elinor Ellis, who lives at 6207 Modlin Grove Road, said that every year her sewer rate has gone up and now she’s looking at $80 per month for 2010-2011. Ellis recalled a rate of about $55 when she moved to her house three years ago and her neighbor Jacqueline Hoffman told her it was $29 in 1999. “Three and a half years ago, if I had Modlin Grove Road resident Elinor Ellis questions Archdale’s sewer fees Photo by Elizabeth Saunders known my sewer was going to be $80, I for those who live outside the corporate limits.

‘Red Dirt Rising’ debuts in other states ‘R

ed Dirt Rising’ has started to kick up dirt at theaters and racetracks across the country — most recently at the White Lightning Festival in Cumberland Gap, Tenn. BY ELIZABETH SAUNDERS The movie, about local pioneers of stock car racing, was mostly filmed on the English Farm in Archdale. “Red Dirt Rising” made its Tennessee debut June 25 at Lincoln Memorial University. The following day, the inaugural White Lightning Festival featured musicians from the movie’s soundtrack. Matt Dylan and Midnight Steel headlined the entertainment. Trinity High School graduate Jeff Tillman performed on the Thunder Road stage with Janet Hattabaugh, Stephanie Bentley and Cliff Downs, all of whom wrote and performed songs for the movie. Bentley has written popular songs for Faith Hill and Martina McBride. The soundtrack is now available through and iTunes. Gary Lewallen of Archdale, the film’s executive producer, attended the festival with his family. He said that the Tourism Commission of Claiborne County, Tenn. treated them like royalty, including a stay at the Old Mill Bed and Breakfast. “Red Dirt Rising” had its world premier May 15, at historic North Wilkesboro Speedway near Winston-Salem, followed by a theater run in Greensboro. Since then, the film has debuted in Columbia, S.C. and in Jacksonville, Fla., home of producer/director Kathleen Bobak. The showings have been the result of networking — through the film

industry connections of directors Bobak and James Suttles, the racing community, Facebook, tourism organizations and even museums. The showing at Columbia Speedway came about through STOCK CAR RacersReunion, a social networking site on the Internet. The movie’s New York premier will show at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, July 24, at Dunn Tire Speedway in Buffalo. Other state premiers are scheduled in Iowa and Georgia. There’s no need to despair for anyone who missed the world premier and can’t make the out-ofstate events. “Red Dirt Rising” will return to North Carolina for a July 31 screening at the Carolina ’Shine Fest in Madison. The movie also will be featured at the Modern Film Festival Oct. 1-3 in Kannapolis. Executives are working toward DVD distribution in October, said Lewallen.

would have said no,” Ellis told City Council members at their June 22 meeting. Residents who buy both water and sewer service from Archdale and live outside the city limits pay a minimum of $32 per month for the sewer portion. Wastewater is not metered, so charges are based on the amount of water a customer uses. Because sewer-only customers have no meters, the city charges a flat rate of $80 for non-residents, regardless of how many gallons a person or family uses. Archdale doesn’t have many of those flat-rate customers — about 25 inside the city and 17 outside, plus a handful of businesses. SEE OUTSIDERS ON PAGE 4

Guil-Rand Board election Aug. 16 T

wo incumbents seek election to the Guil-Rand Fire Protection Association Board of Directors, which oversees the operations of the GuilRand Fire Department. STAFF REPORTS

The election will be held during the annual meeting set for 7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 16, at headquarters station, 10506 S. Main St. Fire Chief Brian Cox will review the department’s expenses and revenue for 2009-2010. Last year’s budget totaled $2,356,843. This year’s budget is $2,347,043. The department is governed by a board of directors elected by those who live in the 72-square mile fire district. Board members are elected by community districts and serve staggered three year terms. Part of the Board’s duties is to oversee the budget, which is primarily funded through a tax levied on the property value within the district. According to the Randolph County budget, there are 19 special fire districts. The Board of Commissioners approves each district’s tax rate during the annual budget process. Guil-Rand’s rate is 10 cents per $100 valuation and has been at that level since the late 1950s, said Cox. Those who wish to run or vote in the election must be 18 or older and live in the Guil-Rand Fire Department tax district. To run for office, a resident must submit a letter of intent that includes name and address, as well as a statement about the desire to serve. The deadline is Aug. 1. Submit letters in a sealed envelope to Guil-Rand Fire Department, 10506 S. Main St. The board will verify the accuracy of the information submitted and make a determination whether the applicant is eligible to run for the office. The bylaws no longer allow for nominations from the floor. The incumbents who seek re-election include Charles F. Scott, who represents Guilford County and Dewey (Mac) Stanley, Trinity.

Bulla selected All-Star S

ix graduates from Trinity High School’s football team have moved up to college football and one of them will play in the East-West All-Star Football game Wednesday, July 21, at Grimsley High School. STAFF REPORTS

TJ Bulla is only the third Trinity player in the 62-year history of the all-star game to be selected. The game features 66 players from across the state, selected by a group of six all-star coaches. The coaches are selected by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. Players report today (July 15) to start a week of practice to get ready for the game. Josh Stevens, 2006, and John McEachin, 2004, are the other Trinity football players who played all-star. Bulldog Head Coach Alex Mebane was selected to coach in last year’s (2009) game, which makes Bulla Trinity’s fourth representative in seven years. Bulla will play at Guilford College in the fall. Theron Williamson, Angelo Dunn and Mario McInnis will join Ferrum College’s football program. Ron Griffin will be at Appalachian State and Andrew McGavic, at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Griffin (punter/kicker) and McGavic (offensive lineman) will walk on. Both are waiting to find out whether they will have a spot on the team this fall or will have to wait until spring practice. The NCAA limits the number of people who can be on a squad. The other four Bulldogs were actively recruited, but did not receive any athletic grant or aid money for football. Guilford and Ferrum both compete at the division 3 level, where no athletic scholarship money is given, according to NCAA specifications. Bulla will play linebacker, Dunn will play fullback, Williamson will play offensive lineman and McInnis will play quarterback/defensive back. Mebane is proud of the Bulldogs’ accomplishments. “We have been through a lot of adversity in our foot-

Bass Club bags treasure at Badin Lake B

adin Lake is snuggled in the lap of the Uwharrie Mountains, south of the Piedmont, amidst a kaleidoscope of mixed landscapes and users. The shoreline ranges from crowded opulent neo-castles, complete with noisy recreational craft of every shape and size, to the Uwharrie National Forest’s chestnut lined slopes, pouring right to the water’s edge and allowing wading fly fisherman to quietly stalk a finny breakfast. It’s a diverse, beautiful oasis with a little for everyone. Not to miss this treasure, the Archdale Bass Club launched the first of two July tournaments there early this past Saturday morning (July 10). The dock talk and tackle shop reports ranged from bemoaned slim pickings to hefty bags of feisty largemouth. Our membership, with arguably some of the area’s better anglers among us, did indeed do us proud. Great Daddy Eddie Yahya drug in a great bag

of five fish weighing 12.5 pounds for third place. Big Mike Hedgecock added another strong showing to a great recent record with five fish weighing 13.09 pounds. Young Mr. Brian Sorrell topped the leader board handily with a fivefish bag weighing 15.97 pounds. “Mr. Lucky� and most experienced club member, Clayton Proctor, had big fish for the tournament with a respectable 4.92 pound bucketmouth. The next tournament will be July 24 on our newly adopted but unofficial home waters of Randleman Regional Reservoir. The Level Cross exit off of U.S. 220 will see us open the gates of this tremendous fishing facility at 6 a.m. We’ll start the tourney as soon as we can get everyone in the water. Weigh-in will be at 2:30 p.m. If you’ve enjoyed these articles about friends, fellowship and fishing through the pages of the Archdale-Trinity News, we would like to extend a special invitation to visit with us close to home

Bill Frazier Archdale Bass Club in person. We appreciate the many kind comments we are receiving and would enjoy the chance to meet and talk, especially with the youngsters, if you can spare a minute or two, while giving you an opportunity to visit Randleman’s facility in the bargain.

Just who is a senior citizen? C

alling all seniors. Pull up a chair and let’s chat. But first, I need to know, just who am I chatting with? In other words, who are the seniors? Some say you enter that status when you retire at age 65. Others say it’s 62. May I suggest to you that whether or not you are called a senior citizen has more to do with where you are — a restaurant, department store or the grocery store. Some restaurants offer a senior menu to those at age 55 and some put the age at 60. Some department stores say 55 and up. As far as restaurants go, check out those discounts by going to a favorite eating establishment on a Friday or Saturday night. Did I say night? No, we seniors like to eat early — like 4:30 p.m. Going out to eat is our special treat for the week. It doesn’t take much for entertainment when you get to the golden years. Perhaps after long years of marriage and thousands of meals cooked, the lady of the

house wants to try someone else’s menu for a while. And who knows, the hubby may be tired of her cooking. To keep the peace, though, this little thought is best unsaid. In addition, think of the widows or widowers. What a nice way to relieve some of the loneliness, to call a friend and say, “How about going out to get some fish tonight?” or whatever your taste buds are calling for. After all, everybody likes to eat, especially when there’s no work involved. Many seniors I know, the ones who are early risers, like to go out for breakfast. No matter when you go out, I will say this: we are surely blessed in the Archdale and High Point areas to have such a great variety of places, even restaurants with lots of good home-style cooking. Another area where the ages for seniors vary is in department stores. Don’t you just love those advertisements that designate senior days with 10

Letters to the editor

to 15 percent off of all purchases. Again, that may mean age 55, 60 or 62. The hipster clothier Banana Republic says you’re eligible for a senior citizen’s discount at the young age of 50. I believe that regardless of age, women love discounts. Have you ever known a woman who didn’t like to shop? I’ve known one or two in my lifetime but they are about as rare as a heavy frost in July. Some of us oldsters aren’t physically able to run to the bargains as we once were earlier in life, but I have hit a few good ones. Speaking from experience, senior discounts aren’t real bargains unless the store offers a sale. Then you can really rack up. In December, Kohl’s offered 30, 40 and 50 percent off items all over the store. I waited until the senior day and then got an extra 15 percent off the prices. Have you ever got such great buys that you went out to the car and put packages in the trunk then went back in to shop some

Reflections of golden years more? Well, I did that day. I bought a man’s winter jacket that ended up costing me $18. I got Christmas things I would never have been able to buy otherwise. It’s my belief that once you hit the senior scene, you are one from then on. And that makes you important. We are a large part of the population of America. Dining and shopping is just the beginning. Next time, we’ll look into senior activities and travel. Until then, try some good food and fellowship and ladies, happy shopping! May you find bargains galore!

Archdale incumbents have unfinished business F

inish the work at the Randleman Regional Reservoir. Complete a joint feasibility study for a wastewater treatment plant with Trinity and Randolph County. These are just a part of the unfinished business that have Archdale’s mayor and three councilmen seeking re-election.

BY ROBYN HANKINS As of Monday, Archdale’s four incumbents had no challengers. “We have accomplished a lot, but there’s more we need to finish,” said Councilman Eddie Causey, at-large. “We’ve come a long way, but we still have things to do,” echoed Ward 4 Councilman Lewis Dorsett, who also served as chairman of the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority. Councilman Larry Warlick of Ward 1 and Mayor Bert Lance-Stone also agreed that of all the city’s ongoing

projects, the lake and sewer feasibility study are the most important. The Randleman Regional Reservoir opened for recreation in March. Construction on the treatment plant is almost complete, however, water pipes and recreational amenities are still in work. The incumbents want to see those projects through to completion. According to Stone, Archdale’s pipe is in the ground and water is expected to flow within the next few months. The feasibility study, a joint endeavor with Trinity and Randolph County, is to determine the possibility of building a wastewater treatment plant in the northwestern part of the county. This would allow Archdale and Trinity to expand their sewer systems to areas south, such as the Edgar Road, Hillsville and Flint Hill communities. A treatment plant would allow both cities to stop pumping their wastewater to Thomasville and High Point and save money in the long run. All incumbents agreed that the lake and treatment plant are not the only reasons to seek another term in office.

CAD system should be up in August


he Archdale Police Department’s computer aided dispatch (CAD) system should be up and running by Aug. 31, provided that there are no bugs, according to Capt. Shannon Craddock. BY BETSY FELDMAN “We have two personnel who have been trained as system administrators,” Craddock said. The 911 connection line to Asheboro has to be

updated and the work on that should finish by mid-August. The fiberoptic connection to High Point is complete. “We are going to have the ability to share data,” Craddock said. Testing for the mobile in-car units has begun and more training is planned for August. The update to the system was approved by the Archdale City Council on Jan. 26, and the upfront costs of $147,228 came from the funds in the police department’s federal drug sei-

zure account. The CAD system offers safety features for officers. The system can track officers in real time, list prior calls at specific addresses and list prior charges on individuals. In addition, the system will improve efficiency by allowing officers to type reports into the system. Currently, responding officers hand-write reports, which later must be typed and entered into the computer system.

“We also need to have the city prepared for when the economy turns around,” Causey pointed out. “I like having input on keeping the tax rate down and getting people the services they want,” Warlick added. Having a Council that works well together and an excellent staff also are important, Stone pointed out. “For the past few years we’ve had a good Council and great leadership from our city manager and finance to stormwater,” Stone told the NEWS. “We’re still maintaining services to our residents and we’re ahead of the game because we have a great staff. I want to serve again.” Dorsett also commended city staff for an excellent job. “We have a great staff,” he declared. “They’re dedicated and professional and they all work very hard. They make us look good.” The filing period ends at noon Friday, July 16. Filing is completed at the Board of Elections office, 158 Worth St. in Asheboro. The cost to file for City Council is $5 and for Mayor, $10. Only personal checks and money orders are accepted.

Budget holds the line


Continued from front “We just don’t really serve outside the city very much,” Finance Director Lori Nurse told the NEWS. Modlin Grove residents were allowed to tap into a line that originally sent wastewater to High Point’s treatment plant, but was cut off by highway construction. In another area of Archdale, the city and Guilford County went in together to install sewer for residents whose septic systems were failing. Guilford County gets one-fourth of that revenue. Ellis was also concerned about failing septic systems in her neighborhood. She asked the Council to consider keeping rates more affordable so that more people would tap in to help pay the city’s costs. “Our costs are very reasonable,” said Councilman Eddie Causey, who mentioned that some other cities charge $120. “When we set the water and sewer rates, we don’t try to make a profit,” he said. Archdale receives no tax income from nonresidents. “We invest in the infrastructure, and the only thing we get

is sewer,” said Causey. Because of the flat rate, Ellis can’t reduce her bill by conserving water. And she can’t connect to city water, because it’s not available in her neighborhood. But there is another way to reduce her bill. She could request annexation. According to the value listed on the Guilford County Geographical Information System, Ellis would pay an extra $312 per year in taxes if her property were annexed into Archdale. But she could save $480 per year in sewer fees. Aside from the initial cost of $350 for annexation, Ellis would see a net savings of about $168 per year. Her neighbor would not be as lucky. Hoffman’s larger parcel would add $770 in annual taxes. She also would save $480 per year with sewer, but annexation would cost her an extra $290 per year at the current rates. Both parcels abut the city limits. They are adjacent to the new industrial park on N.C. 62, owned by Sixty Two Properties LLC, that was voluntarily annexed in 2008.

here are many types of love and many different ways to classify the different types of love. One fairly standard way is by the Greek notions of eros, philia, and agape, corresponding roughly of the English notions of romantic love, brotherly love, and love of God. While this classification captures most manifestations of love, it doesn’t seem to capture all of them. For instance, the love of a mother for her children is arguably different than brotherly love. In any case, I want to suggest that we should not wait for love to come our way before we love in return. The true lover is one who gives their love freely and without conditions, and though they may hope and trust that it will be returned, doesn’t make it a precondition of loving. Love cannot have preconditions or stipulations. If you want to be loved, then love first and love deeply, and love without qualifications or conditions. By extending your hand in love and friendship, you create the conditions for a mutual friendship. Waiting to see if the other person will extend their friendship first will lead to suspicions about your feelings and mutual distrust. Perhaps here we should consider the example of a mother’s love: She does not wait to see what kind of child her newborn will become before giving her love but rather extends it immediately, unconditionally, and wholeheartedly. We should do likewise to all of God’s creation.

Mrs. Ryan Benton Barwick

Barwick-Tillman couple wed Ryan Benton Barwick and Mary Elizabeth Tillman were married Saturday, May 22, 2010, at First Friends Meeting in Greensboro. Deborah Seuss officiated the 4:30 p.m. ceremony. The bridegroom is the son of Rick and Ann Barwick of Chelsea, Mich. He graduated cum laude from Hope College in Holland, Mich. and is pursuing his master’s degree in economics at Johns Hopkins University. He is the sales and events director at the Oceanaire Seafood Room in Washington, D.C. The bride is the daughter of the Honorable Jerry and Marian Tillman of Archdale, and the grandaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Moore of Nashville, Tenn. She is a graduate of Trinity High School and Appalachian State University. She is a political consultant in Washington, D.C. Lucas Olinyk served as best man. Groomsmen were Jim Hirni, Paul Jackson, Todd Neckers, Harrison Tillman, Jeff Tillman, Patrick Tillman and Jason Young. The bride was escorted by her father. Misty Allred Mayfield was matron of honor. Bridesmaids included Kelly Benedetti, Kimberly Churney, Melissa Deere, Melinda Pulido, Elizabeth Stoll and Julie Tillman. Audrey Tillman, Emma Tillman and Sophia Tillman were flower girls. The couple honeymooned in Kauai, Hawaii, and Monterey and San Francisco, Calif. They reside in Washington, D.C.

The program was recently recognized by the White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity. According to Pauline McKee, executive director of the Randolph County Partnership for Children, statistics taken from 2008 rank Randolph County 65th out of 100 for the number of obese children in the 2- to 4-year-old age range. In collaboration with the Randolph County Health Department, this program has now impacted more than 1,000 children in 12 child-care centers which volunteered to participate. Trin-Dale Children’s Center in Trinity participates. The Partnership is accepting applications for additional child-care centers to participate. In the upcoming year, the program will be adapted for part-time churchbased preschool programs. Centers interested in participating should call Natalie Tackitt at 629-2128, ext. 15. The program, “Solving the Problem of Childhood Obesity within a Generation,� focuses on the child-care environment and asks center directors and teachers to identify aspects of the environment they want to im-

prove, including nutrition, equipment, playtime and opportunities for physical activity. Based on a written assessment, child-care health nurses provide on-site technical assistance and a series of five workshops for staff. Grants are provided to enhance equipment and materials designed to promote physical activity. The Randolph Hospital Community Health Foundation, an endowment supporting Randolph Hospital and funding the health and wellness projects of community non-profits, awarded $3,000 to the Partnership for the enhancement of such equipment and materials for 2009-2010. The program measures success by changes in the foods offered and activity opportunities given to children. The Randolph County Partnership for Children, a nonprofit organization, is the community’s lead organization for young children and their families. The Partnership for Children is a United Way of Randolph County agency. For more information, visit www.

Pay trafďŹ c tickets online A

system to pay most waivable traffic tickets and related costs is online. The system, payNCticket, launched as a pilot in March 2010 and is now processing an average of about $24,000 per day, which has kept nearly 4,700 people from standing in line at county courthouses. STAFF REPORTS

The web-based system was custom-built and implemented in each county by the judicial branch’s N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts in collaboration with a third-party receipt processing company. “The payNCticket system is a major step toward increasing the North Carolina court system’s online service capacities and meeting the technological needs of citizens as well as court officials and staff,� said Judge John W. Smith, director of the program. “It provides a more convenient payment option for citizens, and it allows for quicker disposition of cases due to automatic updates of case records.� Overall, state courts handle the payment of more than half a million waivable offense citations (including traffic) per year. In fiscal year 2008-2009, more than 644,000 of these waivable offense citations were paid in the state. Prior to payNCticket, fines and related court costs could be made either in person at the courthouse or by mail. Payments may be made on a secure website at www. and are processed by an independent third-party vendor.

and provides an entertaining, unconventional look at what most consider to be an ordinary household item. The exhibit is sponsored in part by a donation of colored duct tape from Shurtape Technologies in Hickory. The Randolph Arts Guild is at 123 Sunset Ave. in downtown Asheboro.
