Trinity to revisit ETJ lines



rinity City Council may reconsider asking the Randolph County Commissioners for an extraterritorial jurisdiction south of the city after the wastewater treatment plant feasibility study has been completed. If so, they will likely request the same area for which they were denied ETJ authority in 2007. BY ROBYN HANKINS

Guil-Rand goes pink Guil-Rand firefighters prove that tough guys wear pink, at least those pictured above can — from left, Steve Barr, Carl Marano, Jake Mills, Matt Robertson, Shane Sample and Scott Spencer. High Point and Guil-Rand firefighters will don pink shirts for cancer awareness as part of the Pink Heals Tour coming through High Point on Saturday, Sept. 11. While some Guil-Rand firefighters will aid High Point in the event, others will show support by wearing the pink shirts at the Bush Hill Heritage Festival, set for the same day. The Pink Heals Tour includes a ride through High Point complete with a pink fire truck. The parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. on N. Main Street, between Montlieu Avenue and High Street in High Point. A 9/11 tribute to fallen heroes will be at 11 a.m. at the Showplace parking lot, 211 E. Commerce Ave. in High Point. A ride to the South Carolina border will begin at 3:30 p.m. The cost is $15 per bike or $20 per bike with two riders. A similar event will be held in Laurinburg.

An extraterritorial jurisdiction, or ETJ, is an area directly outside of a city’s limits. N.C. General Statutes allow a municipality with a population under 10,000 to claim up to one mile of unincorporated area adjacent to the city limits in an ETJ. Residents in the ETJ are subject to the city’s zoning laws and fee schedules, but do not pay city taxes. City Manager Ann Bailie said the Council would likely wait to discuss the matter further. “If the Council chooses to discuss ETJ in connection with the wastewater treatment plant, it will be after the feasibility study is completed and presented,” Bailie said. “That will probably be around the end of this year or first of the next.” The feasibility study for a wastewater treatment plant is a joint endeavor funded by Trinity, Archdale and Randolph County. When complete, it will outline the various costs associated with construction of a wastewater treatment plant south of the Archdale-Trinity area. The cities collaborated with the county to determine whether or not the construction of a treatment plant would be less expensive than continuing to pay High Point and Thomasville to treat wastewater.

Chamber Education Committee sets aggressive agenda T

he Education Committee of the Archdale-Trinity Chamber of Commerce in partnership with local schools has identified an aggressive agenda of involvement with students. STAFF REPORTS

“Our goals are to address student needs as they make career choices and assist them in preparing for the world of work,” says Committee Chairman Sandi Norman. “Staff and faculty at Archdale-Trinity

Middle School and Trinity and Wheatmore high schools have helped us identify needs and develop programs which we hope will prepare students for life.” Those programs include Reality Store, Job Shadowing Day and Career Day. Reality Store will take place at Wheatmore High School on Oct. 12. The financial literacy program is co-sponsored by Communities In Schools of Randolph County and offers freshman students a good dose of reality. Each student is given a profile which

includes marital status, number of children, job and income. Then they are given a check book register to use when recording their “expenses.” Students visit booths manned by local business representatives, where they purchase the essentials of life such as housing, food, clothing, transportation, insurance and child care. “They learn very quickly that there is little left for entertainment,” said Norman. High Point Regional Health System and First Bank are co-sponsoring this event. A Reality Store will be held in the spring at

Trinity High School. Job Shadowing Day will be held Oct. 26 for eighth grade students at Archdale-Trinity Middle School. Selected students will spend approximately three hours shadowing local businesses so that they will be better prepared to make career choices. Because this event has been so successful, the education committee will host this program twice at ATMS during the 20102011 school year with the second event to be held in the spring.

WHS loses to Providence Grove


he Wheatmore Warriors hope to play better offense at home this Friday against West Davidson High School. After winning their first game in school history, the Warriors had a different outcome against the Providence Grove Patriots last week. BY CONNOR HARRIS WHS correspondent

At the beginning of the game Providence Grove’s quarterback, AJ Lawrence, handed the ball off to Ernie Patterson for a touchdown to bring the score to 7-0. A little while later Wheatmore’s Garrett Rains threw a pass, but it was intercepted by Providence Grove’s John Hodges, which led to another touchdown by the Patriots. The Warriors tried to come back in the

second half when Chris Clubb recovered the ball and Josh Rickert ran in for the touchdown. The Patirots won with a final score of 17-7. Both schools now have a 1-1 record. Rickert led the Warriors with 104 yards. “We played very well defensively against Providence Grove. Dalton Albertson had an outstanding performance,� said Coach Eugene Everhart. “Providence Grove also played very well defensively. We need to play more physically next week.� The varsity game starts at 7:30 p.m. “West Davidson has a very explosive football team. Their quarterback, tailback and wide receivers are all very athletic and fast,� Everhart said. “We need another great effort from our team to have an opportunity to win. We need to have more balance on offense. We hope to play as well offensively as we did against South Davidson.�

Bulldogs lose in double overtime


rinity’s football team will try for their first win of the season at West Stokes Friday night, after a disappointing battle against East Davidson last week. STAFF REPORTS

nobody scored in the second half. An outstanding tackle by Bulldog Daulton Rogers stopped the Eagle advance within 5 yards of the end zone. East Davidson attempted the field goal and missed. But the Bulldogs couldn’t make headway on their possession as they were pushed back into Eagle territory and then missed their own kick. East Davidson scored in the second overtime, for the win at 18-12.

the use of certain courses. It is named ‘The Mysterium Compass’ because life itself is a mystery in its own way. This course was sponsored by the Order of the Arrow, a service organization within the Boy Scouts of America. The course teaches teamwork by using experience and examples that most if not all of the boys in the groups will be familiar with by turning them into both mental as well as physical exercises. The exercises make Scouts think about how all of the teams can win instead of just one, as well as how to handle situations in life that may be thrown at a young man throughout his adult life and obstacles that may stand in one’s way. In the beginning, we were taken through an orientation and placed in four groups in order to complete the course. Afterwards, we were placed in four smaller groups and taken through an orientation of the first obstacle that gave a hint of what would happen.

Our first obstacle was like a puzzle. We had to find a way to acquire all of the other groups’ items as well as our own and to put them into our ring. After soon realizing that the task was impossible and the time is over, we were told by the guide that we could have placed all of the groups’ rings on top of each other and placed all of the items in one place, making us all winners. Next, we were led into another room, in which we were thrown into a surprise dodge-ball game and had to find a way to prevent the enemy from bombarding us. After time was up, we were told to look at the dodge-balls and read the messages. On the balls are written phrases such as “play,” “work” and “school.” We were also told to look at the ground around them and to read that as well. On the floor were the same words along with others. This was to teach us that instead of throwing responsibilities back, we should just take them as they come and, eventually, they will be completed. Next, we were led to a “dream world” where costumed people were free from all responsibilities. This may sound like a

dream come true, but the person who was trapped wanted to be free and was being held there by his own thoughts and fears. He tried to leave, but every time he tried, the thoughts convinced him to stay longer. We left that room and went outside, where we were asked to complete an inflatable obstacle course. The course was to teach Scouts that any obstacle can be overcome. After we had completed the compass course we were released with many new ideas about life itself. Seth Allred, of Boy Scout Troop 25 at Archdale Friends Meeting, volunteered to serve as news correspondent on behalf of the 2010 National Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia.

Build a work ethic in children from the start T

oday’s child has lots of things — a lot of toys, a lot of homework and a lot of extracurricular activities. Yet one thing that many children today don’t have is chores. When most of us were young, chores were a normal (albeit dreaded) part of our childhood. We made our beds, cleaned up our toys and, as we got older, helped wash dishes and mow the lawn. Many children today would laugh at the thought of having to do such things in their own home. Some parents feel that children don’t need to do chores when their days are already so busy with school and activities. Other parents resented doing chores as children and want their own children to have an easier life. And still others hire a cleaning service, make peace with the dust-bunnies or help to do many of the day-to-day chores that, in the past, often fell to children and the parent. What many parents do not realize is that chores are an important learning experience for children. Sure, you may have to hear your child complain a time or two about how they’d rather play ball with

Jimmy or talk to Jane on the phone than do their chores first, but it will pay off in the long run. Chores teach responsibility and respect, and they allow your child to see themselves as both an individual and part of a family. Young children feel a sense of pride when they help out and chores, even simple ones, let them contribute to the family on a regular basis. Something as easy as placing the napkins on the dinner table helps a small child participate in meal preparations. It also shows him that everyone needs to help get dinner ready, rather than teaching him the idea that, when he is hungry, a meal is simply prepared for him. One of the questions parents often have concerning chores is whether children should receive an allowance or money for performing these household tasks. Each parent has his or her own opinion or preference when it comes to this subject. Some parents feel that an allowance gives the child a reward or benefit for doing her chores. The weekly allowance (often 50 cents to $1 for every year of age) may be given when the chores are successfully completed. A child can also earn additional

money by doing extra chores. Other parents do not believe in tying the chores to any sort of allowance or reward. They may give their children a weekly allowance, but it is not a benefit of doing chores. Their idea is that the child should do regular chores simply because he is a part of the family, not because he is being paid to do so. One of the risks of connecting the chores to an allowance is having the child decide that she doesn’t want the money, so she doesn’t need to do the chores. Whether or not you reward your child for doing chores, the most important thing is to assign weekly, age-appropriate responsibilities. Young children can help sort laundry or put it away, help set the table, pick up their toys and help keep their rooms clean. Elementary age children can help wash the dishes, vacuum, dust and make their beds. Start when your children are young, and chores will soon be a normal part of life for your family. I bet if you were to ask anyone you know who is a successful adult, they will tell you they did chores as a child. By assigning chores to your child now, you can help to shape a responsible, confident and respect-

Time’s a wasting and there’s lots to do G

reetings all you seniors! Just sit back in your recliner and let’s reminisce about some of the places we have been or dreamed of going.

Yep, seniors like to travel. The decision on the mode of travel is a toss-up. Some men love to drive, and drive and ... well you get the picture. If you drive, it’s true that you have more freedom to choose when and where to stop and how long to stay. However, many folks choose to go by motorcoach. The itinerary is planned and everything is taken care of by the driver and hostess. If you step in a tour bus that is filled and ready to go, don’t be surprised when you look down that long row of seats to find lots of beautifully coiffed, white hairs and a few bald heads. My late husband Charles and I did not wait until we retired to go on bus tours. He didn’t like to drive long distances and he

had stood in enough lines in the Navy to do him a lifetime. So, we tried to take a couple of trips each year at vacation time and many after retirement. The photos and memories are worth all the tired bodies and aching muscles. The memories from the breath-takingly beautiful Niagara Falls to Hawaii and the “Passion Play” near Branson, Mo., will remain vivid. Expect to laugh, a lot, on those motorcoach tours. We were tooling along the highway when the hostess announced she would play a tape. We had a newer model bus that had little bitty TVs. Have you ever heard of Carl Hurley, the comedian? We had not, but we were in for a treat. The laughter was so boisterous, some wiped tears and held their sides ... all but one. She never cracked a smile the whole 30 minutes. On a tour to Renfro Valley, we saw this

Rural loans available for eligible homeowners U

comedian and bought our own tape. Another way to pass the time on the long stretches on a trip is to play bingo. I would bet a wooden nickel it’s the best loved game of all older seniors. Last month when the Widows Club from my church met, we had all the makings for sub sandwiches and then we played bingo. It was lots of fun and fellowship. We are very blessed to have all the senior centers in the Piedmont area. They offer so many activities for us all and we can choose whatever appeals to our individual tastes. My brother, John Key from Pilot Mountain, entered the senior games from 1998 until 2009. He entered in Winston-Salem, and all but four years, he went on to the state games in Raleigh. He entered many different categories and has won 100 medals — 65 gold, 26 silver and nine bronze. This is a widely announced yearly event and for ladies there are sporting events as well as arts and crafts.

Betty Linthicum Senior Moments So seniors, let’s get cracking. Time’s a’wasting, and there is much to do. Even the oldest, whose health has failed, can read, write, do crafts, send cards, do some traveling and pray that God will use our lives to be a blessing to others. It’s never too late to live, even for the “all but one” kind of folks. To those who are alone, everything is a little different. I might touch on this next time. Stay tuned.

Continued from front

According to Randolph County Planning Director Hal Johnson, cities must obtain approval from the Randolph County Commissioners to develop an ETJ. The Commissioners are not required to hold a public hearing, although they can do so if they wish, and the decision of whether or not to grant ETJ authority is entirely within their discretion. Trinity requested an ETJ to the south in 2007, but was denied by the Commissioners after the public expressed concerns about municipal control and annexation. The Commissioners later granted Trinity ETJ authority in the northern area. Trinity finalized the northern ETJ,

which extends from the city’s northern limits to U.S. 29/70 (Business 85), in April 2008. The agenda for the Aug. 17 Council meeting had included discussion of a possible resolution seeking authority in the southern area. However, Mayor Carlton Boyles and Bailie decided to remove that discussion from the agenda. “It would be in our best interest to wait and take this as a package plan,” Boyles said, adding that ETJ expansion should be considered after completion of the wastewater treatment plant study. Boyles said that the city will not seek ETJ for growth and expansion, but to protect its borders from unde-

sirable land uses. Also, should the wastewater treatment plant become a reality, it would be that much easier to extend sewer service to residents in that area. If Trinity does ask for an ETJ to the south and if the county grants the ETJ, residents would go to the city rather than the county for zoning issues and follow the city’s regulations and fee schedule. A representative would be appointed to the Planning And Zoning Board from the ETJ area. Current county zoning for the area is residential agricultural; the future land use plan shows this area as rural residential and rural. Property in use as a bona fide farm would not be regulated by the city’s zoning ordinance.

The home of Ken and Geni Carico abounds with phlox, roses, zinnias, begonias, salvia, marigolds, lantana and other flowers.

Caricos win Trinity yard of the month


en and Geni Carico have lived at their home on Forest Manor Drive for 33 years, but the beautiful gardens have evolved primarily over the last 10 to 15 years, said members of Friends of Trinity, who selected the property as the August yard of the month. STAFF REPORTS

With her count of more than 100 varieties of plants, Geni has cultivated a four season landscape with something always visually appealing. Phlox punctuates other perennials such as black-eyed Susan, roses, joe-pye weed and crape myrtles. More color is added with annuals such as impatiens, zinnias, marigolds, begonias, salvia, lantana and vinca. Ken has contributed much of the structural framework with a traditional picket fence, greenhouse and a multilevel deck that surrounds a third of the home. According to Friends of Trinity, the Caricos have created an oasis through an organic and holistic approach to gardening to stimulate the senses and welcome butterflies, fish, frogs or honeybees. “I feel like it is heaven on Earth,” says Geni.

Benfields win Green Thumb award


wo children and a decade later, the Benfields have won their second yard of the month award.

“When we moved here, the yard was mostly sandrock,” said Denise. The installation of an irrigation system helped the grass and the family’s hard work resulted in several features — well established trees, gardens bordered with slate and landscaping stones and a goldfish pond with its own fountain. The Benfields’ hard work is commendable and the Community Appearance Commission congratulates them on an award well deserved. To nominate someone for yard of the month, call 434-7333 or e-mail

Tim and Denise Benfield won the award way back in 2000 after the birth of their first child. It was also at their previous home off of Archdale Road. This time the award comes at their current home on Autumn Hill Court and with the distinction of being Archdale’s Green Thumb Award Winner for August. The Benfields bought their house in 2007 and have been working since then to improve their yard.

Coltranes earn July honor

Nominated by a neighbor, their home was selected by Friends of Trinity as the July yard of the month. Baxter maintains the lawn and the bumper crop of tomatoes that are freely shared. Mae is the flower gardener and has created numerous beds overflowing with color. Plantings along fences include knockout roses, peonies and day lilies, islands of purple, white and red vinca, a birdhouse draped with clematis and surrounded by red begonias. One of Mae’s favorite flowers are her irises that are stunning in the springtime. They are incorporated in a courtyard partially shaded by red bud trees and alongside a row of purple portulaca. According to Friends of Trinity member Kristen

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Capturing the Moments of a Lifetimeâ&#x20AC;?

The eighth of the works of the flesh mentioned by Paul in his epistle to the Galatians is jealousy, which is a translation of the Greek word "zelos." The word "zelos" can be translated as jealousy, envy, or zeal, and can have both Sherry L. Somers a good and a bad sense. In a good sense, we can be zealous for God and all Independent Senior Sales Director things holy, but in a bad sense, we can envy the 227 Aldridge Lane Archdale, NC 27263 success of others or be jealous about our loved 336-861-6809 336-861-7337 Fax ones spending time with others. In Exodus 20:4-5 we are told to avoid making graven images or bowing down to anything other than God "for I the Lord your God am a jealous God." As human beings, the only proper zeal we should ,OCATEDIN4ARHEEL0LAZAs   have is for God and goodness.

High Point Regional employees raise more than $106,000 Despite a challenging economy, the employees at High Point Regional Health System raised more than $106,000 to complete the first-ever annual employee giving campaign.

Wheatmore adds agricultural classes W

hen Wheatmore students registered for fall 2010 courses, 146 of them signed up for agriculture courses as their first choice. Another 257 selected agriculture as an alternate. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the administration realized that Wheatmore needed its own agriculture classes. BY DEBBIE HIGHTOWER When Wheatmore High School opened during the 2009-2010 year, no agriculture classes were offered there. Students who signed up for agriculture classes, 33 of them, were transported to Trinity High School to take agriscience applications and ag mechanics I & II. Implementation of the program required budget planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We budgeted for the position as soon as we knew that student registration indicated a need,â&#x20AC;? said Ann Callicutt, career technical education director at Randolph County Schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The agriculture education position is being funded through state career technical education funds.â&#x20AC;? The equipment was budgeted out of state and federal dollars. With the addition of Wheatmoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agri-

culture program, all of the traditional high schools in Randolph County have agriculture programs. New for this year are entry-level biotechnology courses such as horticulture and animal science. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our entry-level biotechnology course 1 goes â &#x201E;2-inch deep and 100 miles long,â&#x20AC;? said Kevin Curry, WHS agriculture instructor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It covers everything involved in agriculture from animal science to agricultural mechanics, knowing the importance of agriculture, aquaculture to horticulture, natural resources and forestry. The point is to give students a taste of all the career opportunities available to them.â&#x20AC;? WHS does not have a greenhouse or barn, but Curry believes the subject can be adequately addressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to have an animal facility on site,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can learn how to give injections on an orange and you can learn how to apply ear-tags on a model. Plus there is always the potential for field trips.â&#x20AC;? WHS agriculture students will be required to do supervised agriculture experience projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to think of that as the application arm of our curriculum,â&#x20AC;? Curry said. Students will do in-depth studies, or internships, in their areas of interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can pursue other avenues of agriculture,â&#x20AC;? said Curry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a student were interested in forestry and natural resources, they could intern with a forest ranger.â&#x20AC;?

A taste for helping Stan Reid, left, and Patrick Farlow of Archdale Bakery hand out sweet samples at Taste of the Town Aug. 17. Archdale Bakery was one of 63 vendors, the highest number ever, who donated their food and their time to raise funds for Hospice of the Piedmont. Hospice of the Piedmont is a nonprofit agency that cares for patients with life-limiting illnesses throughout the Triad, including the Archdale-Trinity area. They also sponsor grief support programs.

Pallative, hospice care offers quality of life A

new study released by the New England Journal of Medicine found that among patients with nonsmall-cell lung cancer, those who received palliative care lived, on average, almost two months longer than those who received standard care, said Hospice of Randolph County. Hospice of Randolph County offers such care. Researchers also found that the patients who receive palliative care reported a higher quality of life through the final course of their illness. The goals of palliative care are to improve the quality of a seriously ill person’s life and to support that person and their family during and after treatment. Sharing the same philosophy of hospice care which is usually provided in the final months of life, palliative care may be provided at any stage during a serious or life-limiting illness. Researchers also found that when pa-

tients received palliative care services, they were also more likely to elect hospice services. “With earlier referral to a hospice program, patients may receive care that results in better management of symptoms, leading to stabilization of their condition and prolonged survival,” wrote the authors of the study. This study adds to the evidence that many patients live longer with hospice and palliative care. Other studies substantiate the recent finding. Hospice and palliative care focus on helping a person with a serious or life-limiting illness by addressing issues causing physical or emotional pain, or suffering. Hospice of Randolph County offers a staff with more than 250 years of combined experience in specialized care. For more information about hospice and palliative care, contact Hospice of Randolph County at (336) 672-9300 or visit their website at

ebbi Smith is not an athlete, but she’s training like one. She will run her first marathon — the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon & 10K (or 6.2 miles) — on Oct. 31 in Arlington, Va. She’s doing this for her husband, Joey.

tremely limiting for Joey, who mostly relies on a wheelchair. He has difficulty navigating his wheelchair through the doorways and requires assistance from family members to get into the bathtub, use the toilet or go outside. The Smiths put in a request with Homes For Our Troops, a national nonprofit organization founded in 2004, which builds houses for severely injured veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Others have seen why she loves him so much. Just after they were married, the couple visited Archdale United Methodist Church. The pastor at the time, the Rev. Dana McKim, reintroduced him to the congregation, who stood and applauded the man who had shown such extraordinary courage while serving his country. Debbi wants to show that same extraordinary tenacity in the 10K portion of the marathon. Training has become a way of life for her. “I’m working hard at it,” she said. “I’ve been watching what I eat, keeping my diet as healthy as possible. I’m either at the YMCA or at the local park running and working out every day.” Debbi has a lot to live up to as an athlete. Joey is involved in many paralympic sports.

He hopes to make the 2012 paralympic archery team, but also hopes to be able to navigate through his own home. “This gift from Homes For Our Troops will give me greater independence and allow me to do things for myself, where before I had to depend on my family,” Joey said. Joey Smith served in the Marines and the Army for a total of 15 years.

Debbi has the same determination as Joey. “I’ve said all along, I may not run the whole 10K, but I will finish it.” She has surpassed her $1,000 goal amount, but she is determined to continue fundraising. “Our wounded warriors deserve every dime I can raise for them, and doing it for Homes For Our Troops is a way that I can give back,” she said.

In the memo line put “Debbi Smith.” Checks may be mailed to Homes For Our Troops, 6 Main St., Taunton, MA 02780 or to Debbi Smith at 3421 Polkville Road, Shelby, NC 28150.

Blood and marrow drive set during Bush Hill A 2 0 1 0 S p o n s o rs

blood and bone marrow drive will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, during the Bush Hill Heritage Festival in honor of Tony Cox, an Archdale resident who is in need of a marrow transplant. Cox was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in March. STAFF REPORTS

The drives will be held in the gym of Archdale Friends Meeting. The event is sponsored by the American Red Cross and the Be The Match Registry. The drives provide two opportunities to help save the life of someone in need, said organizer Perri Coltrane, senior donor recruitment representative of biomedical services for the Red Cross. Individuals will have the opportunity to become part of the Be The Match Registry, a national network of people willing to donate their healthy bone marrow to someone whose only chance for life may be a marrow transplant. Becoming part of the registry involves a mouth swab and the completion of a consent form. Donors must be between the ages of 18 and 60 and be in good general health. There is no fee, but tax-deductibe donations may be made to cover the cost of typing.

Some 70 percent of patients searching the registry will find an identical donor, with the percentage of minority patient matches being significantly lower. Because marrow types are inherited in the same way as skin, eye and hair color, a patient’s best chance of finding a matched donor is with someone from the same racial or ethnic background. Minority donors are underrepresented in the Be The Match Registry. “This is why it is of vital importance for minority volunteer donors to participate in the marrow program,” Coltrane said. Blood donors should be at least 17 years of age or 16 with parenTony Cox tal permission, meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more, depending on the height for 16- to 18-year-olds) and be in general good health. Donors must present identification. For more information about the Bush Hill blood drive and bone marrow typing, contact Coltrane at 403-4301. Appointments are recommended for blood donations but are not needed for the marrow typing.

According to Bill Frazier of Archdale Bass Club, the challenge of the game is to flip, pitch and cast a line with accuracy. Mastering these three techniques will give any

angler the skills they need to present lures and catch bass. “The kids will be casting at targets,” Frazier said. “We’ll have two lanes going and all they need to do is show up.” Trophies will be awarded to first, second and third place winners in each age group. A fishing rod will be presented to the top angler in each category. “We just want to get kids interested in fishing,” Frazier added.

Cooper offers tips for back-to-school safety A

ttorney General Roy Cooper offered tips to help parents get their children back to school safely and ready to learn. STAFF REPORTS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Giving our children a safe and successful school year means more than buying the right pencils and backpacks,â&#x20AC;? Cooper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few simple steps can give parents some peace of mind so they can focus on helping their kids learn.â&#x20AC;? Cooper offers the following safety tips: â&#x20AC;˘ Sign up to get e-mail alerts when a registered sex offender moves near your home or your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school, daycare or after-school center. Visit the sex offender website,, to sign up for the alerts, and encourage your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school to sign up for alerts as well. Use the site to search for registered offenders and view maps and aerial photographs that pinpoint where they live. â&#x20AC;˘ Make sure your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school has a current safety plan. Ask if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put together their critical incident response kit, which should contain everything a school needs to respond to a crisis, like blueprints, keys, rosters and emergency plans. Cooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office helped distribute the kits to all North Carolina schools. Ask if teach-

ers have been trained and what you should do as a parent if a crisis occurs at school. Check out the list of schools that have put together their kit and provided training for teachers. â&#x20AC;˘ Make sure your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school, daycare and after-school center screen their employees including background checks. Visit and get to know the people who spend time with your children. â&#x20AC;˘ Consider carefully the questions a school asks about student privacy, for example, whether you are OK with having a photo of your child used on the school website or taken by a news organization. If the school doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, inquire about its policy. â&#x20AC;˘ Update your list of emergency contacts and give a current copy to your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school and any after-school programs. Make sure that everyone on your contact list knows key information, such as how to get to your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school, your pediatricianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and number, alarm codes for your house, etc. â&#x20AC;˘ Ask the school to notify you if your child doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrive at school and let the school know who is authorized to pick up your child. Make sure your children know who would pick them up in case of an emergency or if you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to. â&#x20AC;˘ Make sure young children know their

full name, parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, address and phone number. You may also want to consider getting an ID card from the NC Division of Motor Vehicles for your child to carry. â&#x20AC;˘ Protect your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identifying information, like Social Security numbers. Identity thieves will use an unsuspecting childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s information to open credit lines without parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; knowledge. Only give identifying information when necessary, and when you do, ask how it will be used and how the organization plans to protect the information. â&#x20AC;˘ Talk to your kids about how to stay safe from strangers, even on the Internet. Set ground rules for Internet use, agree on websites that are OK to visit and explain what is appropriate or not to do or view online. Easy-to-use tools that can help you protect your children online, including a video and resource guide, are available free from Cooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office at www.ncdoj. gov. â&#x20AC;˘ Consider carefully the age and maturity of your children before deciding to let them use social networking sites. If you allow it, read the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety tips, utilize its privacy settings and provide extra supervision. Talk to teens about how social networking sites can cause problems

if people post inappropriate messages and embarrassing photos or respond to scams. â&#x20AC;˘ Talk to your kids about mobile phone use as well. Many young people today have mobile phones that can be used to access the Internet. Kids need to know that the same safety rules apply if they use their phones to go online. Teens also need to be reminded about the dangers of texting or talking on the phone while driving. The National Safety Council estimates that 28 percent of car crashes are due to drivers talking or texting on their cell phones, and research suggests the risks may be even greater for inexperienced drivers. â&#x20AC;˘ Talk to school staff about Internet safety, too. Computers can be a wonderful learning tool, and many children now have access to the Internet in classrooms and school libraries. Ask your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school how they protect their students when they go online, and let them know that Internet safety tools for teachers are also available at â&#x20AC;˘ Encourage your children to talk to you about anything that makes them feel scared or uncomfortable. Teach your kids which trusted adults (such as grandparents, teachers, school resource officers, a neighbor you know and trust) they can also turn to when they need help.

RCC students create hellbender costume for Zoo


avid Gaines and Kelly Gaines of Archdale were among the 17 Randolph Community College advertising and graphic design students who helped to create a costume for the Eastern Hellbender salamander. STAFF REPORTS

Working with the N.C. Zoo, the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; efforts will promote education about the species, which is in decline and listed as a Species of Concern. David Gaines feels passionate about the effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m helping to save a

species that cleans waterways and streams,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will help our grandchildren with cleaner water.â&#x20AC;? His sister Kelly also worked on the project and feels equally passionate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We developed it from beginning to end,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;by trial and error.â&#x20AC;? She views the effort as an educational tool that will make folks a little more curious about the Hellbenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ecologial role. The Hellbender is a giant salamander, native to North America, which inhabits large, swiftly flowing streams with rocky bottoms. The students worked with John Groves, N.C.

Zoo curator of reptiles and amphibians, who studies the Hellbender, and Jayne Owen Parker, director of conservation education for the N.C. Zoological Society. Groves is pleased with the final product. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You all did a wonderful job,â&#x20AC;? he told the students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really appreciate this and I think it will make people take note of (the Hellbender).â&#x20AC;? Other RCC students who worked on the project are Benjamin Stanley, Kaleb Duggan, Brittney King, Rachel Ramirez, Murialice Klatte, Cheryl Thurston and Josh McCrary, all of Asheboro; Audrianna Funkhous-

tudents in neighborhoods around Trindale Elementary School may be able to walk to school by the 2011-2012 school year. A Safe Routes to School grant will speed up Archdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans to build a sidewalk on Balfour Drive.

BY ELIZABETH SAUNDERS Archdale City Council authorized a joint agreement with N.C. Department of Transportation at their Aug. 24 meeting. The standard DOT contract spells out federal requirements to receive the grant money. The sidewalk will run along the school side of Balfour Drive, from Brookhollow Lane to Barrett Drive, and continue along both sides of Trindale School Road, for a total of about 2,037 feet. The project is estimated to cost $120,000. The Safe Routes to School grant will provide $100,000. The remaining amount was already included in the city budget. Planning Director Jeff Wells said that construction would begin next summer, after school is out. In the meantime, they will acquire rights of way and complete any preparation that needs to be done. The agreement with DOT sets a deadline of two years from now for completion. In other business, a contract was awarded to All Seasons Landscape Management for the next phase of work at the entrance of Creekside Park. Their bid of $104,609 for irrigation, landscaping, sign and lighting was the lowest bid. Carole McMahan and Jeffrey Little were appointed to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. One seat on the Board remains vacant. Wells gave Council members a summary of Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future plans, which may include a U.S. 311 Express between High Point and Asheboro. Mayor Bert Lance-Stone said the U.S. 311 Bypass (Interstate 73/74) portion to Spencer Road is 91.7 percent complete, with a scheduled opening date of Dec. 1. The remaining portion, to U.S. 220, is scheduled to open in 2013. Randolph County Commissioner Darrell Frye updated the Council about a potential merger of the Piedmont Triad Council of Governments and the Northwest Piedmont Council of Governments. The agreement with Davidson Water Inc. was amended to delete references to service fees. In light of the City Clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement, Archdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s human resources officer was authorized to use the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature stamp to co-sign checks. Council approved a proclamation that designates Sept. 10-11 as Bush Hill Heritage Festival days in celebration of the 25th annual Festival.
