Schools need to help all students, say candidates

andidates for Randolph County Board of Education had various ideas, but all agreed that the school system needed to do a better job addressing the diverse needs of its students in order to reduce the dropout rate and better prepare them for the future.

grove and Gary Mason of Asheboro. The remaining candidates — Robert Cromer of Liberty, former Board member Tommy McDonald of Randleman and incumbent Laverne Williams of Asheboro — sent their regrets. The Board of Education race is nonpartisan. The candidates were asked questions about reducing the dropout rate and how to better prepare students for jobs. Their answers were different, but all noted that the school system needs to support its different students in different ways. Mason, a 30-year law enforcement veteran and former Asheboro Chief of Police, believes that the schools should stop teaching to a test and start teaching subjects in ways that connect with kids. “We’ve lost the ability to make learning fun,” Mason explained. “If (school) is not enjoyable, we’ve enhanced the likelihood they’ll quit.” He also believes that the school system needs a renewed emphasis on preparing students for the job they want because not all jobs

Collapsing stormwater pipe causes intersection to ﬂood T he intersection of N.C. 62 and Sealy Drive floods because tractor-trailers are crushing a stormwater pipe when they make their turns, said Bonnie Renfro, president of the Randolph County Economic Development Corporation. BY ROBYN HANKINS
Damage to the stormwater pipe underneath the intersection occurs as truckers turn onto N.C. 62 Photo by Debbie Hightower from Sealy Drive.
The truck drivers are not at fault, she continued. The width radius of the road is not wide enough for tractor-trailers turning onto N.C. 62 from Sealy Drive. “We asked DOT to look at it, and they confirmed that the road is not wide enough,” said Renfro, who is spearheading an effort to have the N.C. Department of Transportation make improvements to the intersec-
tion. The intersection of Sealy Drive and N.C. 62 is on the border of Archdale and Trinity. It’s not a constant problem, she hastens to add. The situation only becomes a problem during severe weather events or when the area receives continuous rain for several days. “During times of inclement weather, the intersection has an overflow of stormwater,” Renfro explained. “The road is completely underwater.” The situation is made more complex by the presence of the railroad tracks and Trindale Mini Mart. “It’s a safety issue,” she added. “Right now Sealy is asking drivers to use Surrett Drive when possible, because Sealy Drive itself also has deteriorated and needs resurfacing. We (EDC) would love to see a solution
that addresses both of these issues.” The first Renfro heard about the problem was at a meeting of Archdale City Council. Archdale City Manager Jerry Yarborough confirmed this. “A while back, I don’t recall exactly when, one or more City Council members brought it up,” Yarborough said. “Bonnie happened to be at that meeting, and she was the one to call DOT and get them involved. She has been a driving force behind this.” He added that while he has forwarded Archdale City Council a memo on what has been suggested, they have yet to schedule a discussion. Trinity City Council, however, passed a resolution SEE PIPE ON PAGE 3

Wheatmore prepares for rivalry game T
he Wheatmore Warriors will make the short drive down N.C. 62 this Friday night to face their rival, the Trinity Bulldogs. BY CONNOR HARRIS WHS correspondent
At Wheatmore’s homecoming game last Friday, the Warriors lost a very close game to the Atkins Fighting
Camels. Into the ﬁrst quarter it was a very even game, but both teams struggled on the scoring end. As the second quarter began, the Atkins Camels started off strong when Brandon Ford scored a touchdown. Soon afterward, Wheatmore’s Josh Rickert got just under the 50-yard line when the ball was fumbled, but he came back with a touchdown to tie at 6-6. Right at the end of the half, Camel Donald Durham got a 38-yard touchdown to bring the score to 12-6. The Camels scored another touchdown in the third, 18-6. Warrior Josh Rickert came back with an amazing 80-yard touchdown run in the fourth to try and catch the Camels, but it wasn’t enough. “It was a game between two evenly matched teams,” said Wheatmore Head Coach Eugene Everhart. “We turned the ball over at inopportune times. Our offensive line played very well. “We played much better defensively in the second half.” The ﬁnal score was 28-12. Wheatmore had a total of 196 yards rushing and four fumbles. Courtney Smith was selected as the ﬁrst ever Wheatmore homecoming queen. WHS No. 23 Chris Clubb celebrates a Warrior score.

Rage grabs tie, win in weekend matches
he Rage, a 10-and-under Guil-Rand Youth Soccer Association boys’ team, improved their record with a tie and a win in two matches last week. On Oct. 16, the Rage battled to a 5-5 tie with the Elite squad from Winston-Salem. Kevin Dominguez recorded a hat trick, striking for two goals within the ﬁrst eight minutes of play and adding a third goal early in the second half. The Elite rallied for three ﬁrst-half goals of their own and the teams were tied 3-3 at halftime, thanks to another goal from the Rage’s Omar Castrellon. In the second half, the Elite went ahead 4-3, but Kevin’s third goal evened the score again. The Rage brieﬂy grabbed the advantage minutes later thanks to a score from Evan Somero, but the Elite tallied another goal in the game’s ﬁnal minutes to force the tie. Jake Clodfelter and Omar split goalkeeper duties for the game. Luke Johnson and Jack McCroskey turned back several offensive attempts by the Elite. Leo Domin-
guez and Ryan Smith keyed the offensive attack for the Rage and Ryan was credited with an assist. On Oct. 17, the Rage overcame a slow start to win 5-2 over the Surry Strikeforce from King. After falling behind 2-0, the Rage managed to even the score by halftime, thanks to goals from Omar and Leo Dominguez. Kevin gave the Rage a 3-2 lead with a goal four minutes into the second half. Leo gave the Rage some insurance with his second score, and Kevin’s second goal of the game sealed the 5-2 victory. Jake and Omar combined in goal to hold the Strikeforce to just two goals with Evan and Ryan providing great offensive support. Luke and Jack again anchored the defense. The Rage, 2-3-2 for the season, travels to Statesville Saturday for the next match before traveling to Jamestown on Sunday to face the Jammers. Submitted by Guil-Rand Youth Soccer Association
Panthers go pink! T
he Archdale-Trinity Panthers made a life statement for the players, cheerleaders, parents and coaches Saturday. Everyone wore pink, in honor of breast cancer awareness month. BY TOM MCGEE Archdale-Trinity Panthers
Before each game, survivors, loved ones and family members served as honorary captains for the game against the Sumner team. Donations were raised and will be given to a family in a ﬁght against breast cancer. Head Football Coach Eugene Everhart of Wheatmore High School spoke to the team about unity, community spirit and hard work. “You can accomplish great things by working hard and working together,” he said. The Flag team remains undefeated with last week’s score at 6-4. Garrett Moser, Christian Long, Travis Hurt, Jackson Passmore, James Tinsley and Blake Page scored touchdowns and played well on defense. Richie Linville, Elijah Poland, Nate Hernandez and Ethan Roberts played well on defense and had some key stops. The Rookies won 32-20. Coach Barry Gellespie said, “The line was the key today. Gavin Stevenson, Noah Allen, Davis and Colby Hill all had key blocks that led the way for the scores.” Gabe Hernandez had three touchdowns and Luke Gentry had a touchdown. Austin Biggs earned a touchdown. Harrison Mofﬁtt made an extra point. Jaxson Kimmons, Logan Gallman, Josh Tyree and Trey Hollingsworth led the way on defense. The JV Panthers won 33-6. Leading the way for the
Diamond Dawgs set fundraiser The varsity and junior varsity Trinity High School baseball teams are raising money for the spring baseball program — most importantly to reseed the baseball ﬁeld. At the Trinity-Wheatmore football game at THS on Oct. 22, the teams will rafﬂe several pieces of furniture. Other items include a jewelry armoire and a TV stand. The Diamond Dawgs will sell the tickets for $2 each or three tickets for $5. The ﬁrst annual Bulldog Bash will be held Nov. 1 during Homecoming week.

team was the offensive line — Christian Loﬂin, Thad Mofﬁtt, Big Mac Long, Brendan Stevenson, Connor Stanley, Matthew Tinsley and Tanner Ward. They helped the team gain more than 250 yards on offense. Jake Grantham had another all-star day with a couple of catches, tackles, an interception and a touchdown run. Blake Reddick ran over a couple of players for his touchdown. Tanner McGee had more than 250 all-purpose yards — a sideline TD run from 40 yards out. He returned the second half kickoff for a 70-yard touchdown and completed four of ﬁve passes for more than 100 yards. Brooks Gellespie had a nifty touchdown run from 12 yards out. Thad Mofﬁt had a couple of bruising extra point runs. Tyler Allen had an extra point run and an interception. Jackson Powell made a couple of nice catches and played really well on defense. Game captains were Chase McKinney, Brooks Gellespie, Dalton Hartle, Scott Tyree and Brendan Stevenson. The Varsity team won 13-7. Coach Scott Edwards said, “Our offensive line had a lot to do with us winning this.... Conner Gardner, Chad Morgan, Chris Baker, Tyler Wray, Jeffrey Byrd, Jacob Snyder and Jaren Davenport led the way for our runs and allowed our quarterback time to throw.” McAllister Ingram connected on a 58-yard touchdown pass to Matt Jarrett. McAllister also ran in a 2-yard touchdown and Matt had the extra point. Coach Jason Duncan added, “The whole team played well on defense and with all our hard work this year it was a very satisfying win.” The Panthers have just one more home game, at Trinity High School next Saturday, against the Tigers from Randleman.

hat makes us who we are? Why are some people more prone to experience stress, obesity or other health problems?
A recent cover story in Time Magazine highlights research that indicates our experiences before we are born may shape the rest of our lives. Any woman who is or has been pregnant knows you cannot escape the message that everything you do affects your unborn child. You hear about all the things you

But how many of you have really thought about the long-term effects of your child’s experiences before they even enter the outside world? Did you know those experiences may affect their future personality, weight, health or intelligence?

They hope to quack lots of proceeds for Randolph County Partnership for Children during the annual NASQUACK event set for Saturday, Oct. 23, in conjunction with Randleman’s NASCAR Day Festival. In this race, the owners of the ﬁrst three yellow rubber ducks to cross Deep River in Randleman could win $1,000, $500 or $250.

McKee Randolph County Partnership for Children daily life — from environment, food and drink to emotions — may affect the person her child becomes. The good news is most of these are things all expectant mothers can control. Research shows that children born to an overweight mother may be predisposed to be overweight themselves. Maintaining a healthy weight prior to and during pregnancy will help to ensure a healthy child. Research indicates the quality of the air inhaled regularly by an expectant mother may affect her child’s brain development. This emphasizes the need to avoid secondhand smoke. This new research is not meant to make all of the pregnant women of the world feel more paranoia or guilt than is already induced by doctors, books and the media, but to make expectant mothers more aware that experiences in the womb may be what makes things go right later in the child’s life.

require a four-year college degree. “If a kid is forced into something, he’ll get fed up and quit,” Mason said. “We need young men and women who want to be farmers because we have to eat. Helping them is going to require more of us to step out of our comfort zones.” Biggs, a 34-year-old real estate broker with two children at John Lawrence Elementary School, said the schools need more dropout prevention counselors “They play a big role in all our schools,” Biggs said. “High school students are facing many things — facing boyfriends, girlfriends, drugs and all sorts of different things coming their way. Sometimes they’re just looking for somebody to talk to. We need to do all we can to give them that.” He also believes that having more specialized technical classes, such as carpentry, would help funnel students into the areas that interest them. “Maybe we can get those guys going out into their ﬁeld early, go ahead and get them out there and keep on working toward that,” Biggs explained. “We need to make sure we have funds for the tech classes.” Coltrane, a mother and juvenile court counselor, also believes that students have diverse needs that are not being met. “There are some kids who drop out because of special educational needs that have not been identiﬁed, and some are not identiﬁed until they’re 14 or 15 and in ninth grade,” Coltrane said. “By that time, they’re so far behind it’s very difﬁcult for them to catch up, very difﬁcult to be involved in their school and connected to their school. We need skilled laborers and they need more diverse opportunities
because not all kids are cut out to go to college.” She also noted that one good way to help better prepare students for work is to invite businesses to be involved in education. “To raise a child it takes a community,” Coltrane acknowledged. “We have business people who can get involved in our schools. We need to tap into these businesses because they want kids they can train, who can come right out of high school and be skilled laborers. It’s a win-win situation for the school system as well as the business community, and the costs would be low.” The candidates also talked about additional ways to support teachers. Mason believes mentoring students is one way to help teachers and businesses be involved, but that “teachers need ﬂexibility to teach the whole child, not a standard test. If we continue down the same path we’ll continue to see more dropouts.” Biggs, however, was concerned about students and the retention of good teachers. “We need to supply continuing education and the tools they need, like teacher assistants, because (teachers) are being asked to do more,” he said. “We’ve got to help them because otherwise we’re going to lose good teachers and good students.” Coltrane pointed out that teachers know best what kind of additional training they need, but that the school board and school system could “look at how we recruit, train and keep teachers and assistants. We need to look at some incentives not only to train them here in Randolph County, but keep them here in Randolph County. We need to show them that the administration supports teachers.”

Sept. 21 asking DOT to make permanent improvements to the intersection. “If we’re going to do this, let’s not put a bandaid on it,” said Trinity City Manager Ann Bailie, referring to a temporary solution proposed by DOT during a meeting with ofﬁcials from Trinity, Archdale, the EDC and Trindale Mini Mart. “They wanted to push the stop bar back behind the store’s driveway, but the owners didn’t like that,” said Adam Stumb, Trinity’s planning and zoning administrator. The stop bar is the white line on the road at a stop sign or trafﬁc signal. “DOT concluded that would be the best temporary ﬁx, but we had to consider the owners, too,” Bailie explained. Renfro also agreed that a temporary ﬁx is not the answer. “Part of the EDC’s role is to be aware of infrastructure issues that affect Randolph County businesses,” she said. “We are asking DOT to ﬁx this because it affects our businesses and their workers. The population and the busi-
nesses have outgrown the road, and that’s a good problem to have, but it needs to be repaired.” Reuben Blakley, district engineer with DOT District 1, which includes Randolph County, said that there is currently no money for permanent intersection improvements. “At this point funding for such a project has not been set aside,” Blakley said. “Once engineering and design funding is allocated for this intersection we will move forward with the design work to come up with some alternatives. I cannot predict when this will take place.” Blakley did conﬁrm that DOT plans to resurface Sealy Drive during the spring or summer. “The amount of trafﬁc a road carries directly affects the frequency of necessary maintenance,” he said. According to the 2007 DOT trafﬁc count map, the annual average daily trafﬁc on Sealy Drive was 5,300 vehicles. Anyone with questions or concerns about the intersection should contact Blakley at 629-1423.

Communities In Schools of Randolph County will host the “Choice Bus” at Archdale-Trinity Middle School all day today (Oct. 21). The Choice Bus experience is approximately 20 minutes long and is designed for grades 6-10. Organizers said the bus helps students focus on the need to stay in school. It is designed to show young people the power of education, as well as the likely consequences of choosing to drop out of school. It contains a full scale replica of a prison cell, which is hidden behind a curtain. Students watch a four-minute movie that quizzes them on a dropout’s earning potential. When the movie is finished, the cell is revealed. Students are invited into the prison cell to briefly experience the uncomfortable living conditions. As students exit the bus, they can sign a banner for their school and make a commitment to finish school and make good choices. For more information, visit www.mattiecstewart. org and click on Choice Bus, or call the CIS office at 625-0008.

In an era where modern modes of travel allow us to travel halfway around the world in a single day, and computers and phones connect us instantly with those on the other side of the planet, our "neighborhood" has expanded considerably. We are living in an era where all of earth's inhabitants are truly our neighbors, that is, people with whom we can interact in a way which can harm or help them. Just as we can easily send money or aid to faraway places, we can just as easily harm them, sometimes unknowingly. Americans who buy drugs smuggled into our country are often supporting violent drug cartels and therefore funding violence. Likewise, the things that we say and do online may hurt or harm people around the world. Cyber bullying has become a problem in many places because people use social networking to ridicule and ostracize others. These days, we may have more direct contact with someone living halfway around the world than we do with the person living next door. Consider how our actions might be helping or harming our neighbors around the world, and next door. We should love our neighbors as ourselves. When asked who our neighbors are, Jesus responded with the parable of the Good Samaritan, the story of a man who risks helping a stranger who had fallen prey to robbers, when a priest and a Levite had passed him by.

Visit www.hpe.com click on Hotdeal Learning how to swim is a childhood rite of passage for most of us. Itâ€™s also an important life skill, to help insure oneâ€™s safety when near water. For ďŹ ve year-old Lucas, however, swimming was just plain â€œscary.â€? â€œAt ďŹ rst I was scared to let go of the wall,â€? he says, â€œbut I was brave to learn how to swim!â€? At The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs, where Lucas spent his summer, the Clubâ€™s certiďŹ ed swim teachers worked with all the kids who couldnâ€™t swim - including brave Lucas - and now they all can! Another big moment for Lucas this summer came when he was named â€œJunior Male Youth of the Summerâ€? out of over 150 kids. â€œThe staff is very nurturing,â€? says Lucasâ€™ mom, â€œand socially he is more conďŹ dent and mature than he was before. I love having him there.â€? This is possible because of your support of United Way and the programs offered by The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs, so on behalf of brave Lucas and his grateful family, thank you! photo by McWhorter Concepts |
