Fire destroys Cedar Square home
home in Cedar Square was deemed a total loss after an early morning fire Oct. 21. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. BY ELIZABETH SAUNDERS Firefighters responded at 2:40 a.m. to 7152 Cedar Square Road. Capt. Shane Sample, commander of C shift for Guil-Rand Fire Department, said that the house was engulfed in flames when they arrived, with fire moving from the right side of the house to the left. “The roof over the right half of the house was already gone,” he said.
With no fire hydrant in the neighborhood, Guil-Rand used trucks to pump water from a pond. Sophia, Pinecroft-Sedgefield and Level Cross fire departments assisted. Even with extensive damage, firefighters will continue put out a fire to prevent its spread to other vehicles or homes, Sample said. The homeowner, Paul Lucas, was out of town and no one was injured. The property is valued at $224,000 and its contents at $12,200. Guil-Rand had 14 firefighters on the scene for approximately nine hours. The cause of an Oak Forest fire the NEWS reported on in the Sept. 23 edition has not been determined.

Some applaud trash service, others decry wasteful spending O n its third try since 2004, Trinity City Council approved mandatory curbside trash and recycling. City residents, however, had mixed reactions — some applauded the move as long overdue while others felt that mandatory service would put an undue burden on citizens.
BY ROBYN HANKINS Trinity approved the service in a 7-1 vote at the Oct. 19 meeting. Curbside will be mandatory for all residents except those living on private roads, although they may opt-in if they sign an agreement to hold the city harmless
for any damage to the road. The service will be $15 per month and most residents will be billed through Davidson Water. Only those on well water will be billed by the city. Toters will be provided by the city. Councilwoman Linda Gantt was the only dissenting vote. She believed the service should have more special considerations for the elderly and those who live far off the main road, that residents should not be required to use a specific toter and that the costs were too high. City Manager Ann Bailie said that recycling is the impetus behind approval of the service. The state earlier this year outlawed plastic bottles from landfills and city residents
had no convenient way to recycle after the county closed the recycling drop-off sites on Surrett Drive and Hillsville Road due to illegal dumping. Aluminum cans were banned from landfills five years ago. “We also hope this will help with illegal burning,” Bailie told Council. “Trinity signed an air quality agreement with several other governments. Violating air quality standards means less federal money and makes it harder to attract businesses to the city.” The service agreement was reached with Handy’s Garbage after Smith Disposal and Roadside Trash pulled out of the discussion.

The Bulldogs scored twice in the first quarter, with touchdowns by Rhyne Kivett and Colin Stout. Kivett passed to Johnson for the extra points and a score of 14-0. Warrior Josh Rickert made the touchdown for Wheatmore and Garrett Rains ran the PAT, narrowing the gap to 14-8 at halftime. Kivett ran for 62 yards, setting up a touchdown by Brad Auman in the third. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, controversy between the coaches and the referees escalated as Warrior fans blamed the Bulldogs for the bad calls. The referees gave Wheatmore several penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct. Interceptions led to two more touchdowns by Kivett, cinching the win for Trinity with a final score of 35-8. Kivett led the Bulldogs with 134 yards and Stout ran 110. Rickert led the Warriors with 148 yards. Trinity’s record stands at 1-7 overall, 1-2 in conference play. They play at Atkins Friday night. Wheatmore, 1-7 and 0-3, will play against Randleman at home. WHS correspondent Connor Harris contributed to this article.

Panther teams celebrate homecoming A
pep talk by Guil-Rand Fire Department Assistant Chief Scott Spencer added to a great day of football Saturday. Spencer focused on the Panther Priorities — faith, family, future and football. BY TOM MCGEE Archdale-Trinity Panthers
The day also celebrated homecoming to a record attendance of 2,800 spectators. Each team elected a cheerleader as a homecoming queen and a player as their king. The
In the junior varsity division, Ashley Goleman and Tanner McGee were elected as homecoming queen and king. Other kings and queens, not pictured, are Travis Hurt, ﬂag team king, and Christopher Baker, varsity king.
homecoming celebration supported the Unity in the Community effort by Trinity and Wheatmore booster clubs. In the ﬂag team division, regular season play ended with a 6-0 record after the Panthers defeated Southwestern Randolph 21-7. The team was led by great defense from Jackson Passmore, Garrett Moser, Ethan Roberts, Elijah Poland and Blake Page. All three touchdowns were scored by Blake and the extra points were scored by Christian Long. Garrett made an important interception In the rookie division, 7- to 8-year-olds, the Panthers beat the Randleman Tiny Tigers 28-12. Gabe Hernandez had two touchdown runs over 75 yards. Luke Gentry had 70 yards of rushing and an extra point. Speedy Harrison Mofﬁt had a great day too, scoring a touchdown and two extra points. Austin Biggs had another great game with a touchdown and an extra point. The team’s defense was led by Logan Gallmon and Wil Shores. The playoff time and location for the rookies will be listed at atpanthers.com. “We have qualiﬁed for the playoffs for the second year in a row and we will be proud to represent the ArchdaleTrinity area once again,” said Head Coach Brian Biggs. In the junior varsity division, the Panthers defeated the Tigers 31-7. Speedy Jake Grantham hauled in a Tanner McGee pass and ran 45 yards to score a touchdown on the ﬁrst play from scrimmage. The next offensive play resulted in a 35-yard touchdown by Tanner. Jake turned on the jets for a 55-yard score down the sidelines. Nicholas Grissom scored the extra point. With just nine seconds left in the half, the Panthers got the ball back and Tanner scored. The Tigers took advantage of the league’s mercy rule, which allows a team down by 25 to keep the ball until they score. The Tigers scored on a nice run around the end. With some great blocking from Tanner Ward, Jackson Powell and other Panthers, Tanner McGee took it 83 yards for the ﬁnal score of the game. “Game captains Drew Davis, Kenny Goleman, Ryan Smith and Jordan Gellespie all played well today,” said Assistant Coach Mark Reddick. The junior varsity team ﬁnished with a 5-1 record and will play the Sharks for the ﬁrst round playoff game. The time and place will be listed on the website.

Storm claims a win Guil-Rand Youth Soccer Storm player MacKenzie Allison, right, pushes the ball past a Guilford United Futbol Club defender en route to a 4-0 win by the Storm. The Storm captured its third win of the season and its ﬁrst shutout, thanks to goals from Alexa Altizer and Logan Parry. The Storm hosts Jamestown at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
On Saturday, the Rage fell behind quickly to the Strikers and were down 5-0 at halftime. The Strikers continued to pour on the offense in the second half, scoring four more times. Only goals from Evan Somero, on an assist from Kevin Dominguez, and Ryan Smith prevented the Rage from suffering a shutout. The Rage recovered on Sunday when it traveled to Jamestown to face the Jammers Blue for the second time this season. Thanks to a hat trick from Kevin, his second three-goal performance of the season, the Rage dominated the game on the way to a 4-2 victory. Kevin scored his ﬁrst goal just three minutes into the contest. After Jamestown scored the equalizer, Leo Dominguez put the Rage ahead with a low shot that squeaked past the Jamestown goalkeeper. The Rage never trailed after that, thanks to Kevin’s second and third goals, even though the Jammers punched in a late score in the game’s ﬁnal minutes. The Rage are now 3-4-2 for the season. They are open this weekend before closing out the season with their ﬁnal match at home against North Davidson Nov. 6. Submitted by Guil-Rand Youth Soccer Association

he Randolph County Association of Educators recommends candidates Gary Mason and Emily Thomas Coltrane for Randolph County Board of Education. After a selection process that included a questionnaire and personal interview, members of the committee agreed that Mason and Coltrane were the strongest candidates. We feel that both have the best interests of the children in Randolph County Schools at heart. They are willing to listen to employees and gather input from educators before making decisions. Both candidates were committed to creating working conditions for employees that are conducive to high academic performance for students. They also agreed that Randolph County Schools needed to work to recruit and re-
tain quality employees as well as preserve educator jobs. Both did acknowledge, however, that budget constraints could make that challenging this year. Gary Mason supports more effective collaborative time for teachers. “There needs to be a quality school climate with an emphasis on good working conditions,” Mason told the Association. “Educators need to be supported in our current tough environment.” Mason understands the importance of relationships and cooperation and is willing to commit his time and energy to the Randolph County Board of Education. Emily Thomas Coltrane recognizes that the county’s population continues to grow and that the population is becoming more diverse. She is concerned that these changes have caused “new challenges thus affecting

the teachers, facilities and class size.” Coltrane wants to ensure that Randolph County is able to meet the needs of the growing population. “There needs to be more ways to bring parents into the school and get them more involved,” she told the Association.
Candidates speak out at forum L
ocal candidates, though mostly incumbents and unopposed, spoke their minds at the Archdale-Trinity Chamber of Commerce Candidates Forum held Oct. 13. One decried property taxes as cruel because property owners bear an unfair share of the county’s expense.
In last week’s edition, the NEWS covered the Randolph County Board of Education race. That story is still available at www.archdaletrinitynews.net. This story includes comments from Archdale and Randolph County candidates, as well as other ofﬁces.
BY ROBYN HANKINS Three of the four candidates for the Randolph County Board of Commissioners attended: Stan Haywood (District 4), Harold Holmes (District 3) and Darrell Frye (District 2). Iris Goins, who has been qualiﬁed by the Board of Elections as a write-in candidate, did not attend. “I’m the new man on the County Commission, I’ve only been here one term,” Haywood said. “One of the reasons I ran was because I could see the growth coming.” With two interstates, he continued, water, infrastructure, good schools and good health care, more people are moving into Randolph County each year. “Knowing growth was coming, I wanted to be part of managing that growth,” Haywood said. “That’s not been an easy task. The Commissioners before me have laid a good foundation, but at the same time paying for schools, water, public safety, those things are expensive. That always brings us to revenue. One of the main jobs I have as a county commissioner is trying to ﬁnd ways to balance that revenue without increasing the property tax.” He described property taxes as “one of the cruelest things” that property owners have to face “because only property owners pay and non-property owners don’t.” “It’s not fair for the residents of Randolph County to support all the services of Randolph County,” he added. “And so the balancing act begins.” Holmes noted that in his 16 years as a commissioner, the county had accomplished many things such as building schools, and is currently beginning work on water related projects. “Just this last week we were able to see water start running from (the Randleman Regional Reservoir), and it’s running all the way to Archdale,” Holmes said, referring to the county’s long-time support for the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority. Frye said that during his terms as a commissioner, he’s strived to improve schools and law enforcement. “Before I ran for the County Commission, I served on Election Day is Nov. 2. Early voting continues at the Archdale Public Library on S. Main Street, the Randolph County Ofﬁce Building, 725 McDowell Road in Asheboro and at the Board of Elections Ofﬁce, 158 Worth St. in Asheboro.

the Archdale-Trinity School Tax Advisory Board. The year before I ran, the capital outlay for all 22 schools in Randolph County was $300,000,” he said. “It wasn’t enough to fund half a roof on a school building. Our schools were being neglected and that became an important part of my emphasis and my focus as a county commissioner.” Frye recalled a ride along he did with former Sheriff Litchard Hurley, who wasn’t sheriff at the time, and that only one deputy served in each of the county’s four quadrants. “That’s all we had at the sheriff’s department to provide law enforcement — four deputies to cover the fourth largest county in the state of North Carolina,” he said. “I made a commitment to law enforcement. Today we’re recognized as having one of the safest counties, the statistics prove that.” Frye also noted that he has done his best to make sure that county services reach the people. “We recently were able to work with Roland Albertson and the folks at the Lions Club to purchase that building to bring county services into this community where the population is,” he noted. “With the Commissioners’ support, we were also able to add a second ambulance to the Archdale-Trinity area.” Though unopposed, Sheriff Maynard Reid Jr. attended the forum to assure taxpayers that he strives to do his job well, especially to reduce the strain on tax payers. “I’ve used a lot of drug seizure money that we got from drug dealers who have been convicted in court to buy a lot of equipment,” he explained. “Due to this money that I’ve used, I haven’t had to ask the Commissioners for more money. That’s at no cost to the taxpayers. I don’t ask the Commissioners for anything that we don’t really need.” Sen. Jerry Tillman (R-District 29) and Rep. Pat Hurley (R-District 70), both unopposed, said they strive to give voice to their constituents. “If you don’t like my votes, call me,” Tillman said. “The only way I know if something’s wrong is if you call me.” Rep. Pat Hurley (R-District 70), echoed this sentiment. “I’m very proud to be a member of the Legislature and very proud to serve all of District 70 and Randolph County,” Hurley said. “I do answer my e-mails and my phone number is in the book.” Hurley and Tillman emphasized their support of zerobased budgeting, a process that requires review of all expenditures. A traditional budget is based on increases from the previous year. Incumbent Congressman Howard Coble (R-6th District) and his challenger, independent Democrat Gregory Scott

“Sam” Turner, also spoke at the forum. The two agreed on the need to ﬁnd alternative energy sources, but disagreed on term limits, health care reform and the stimulus bill. Coble said voters set term limits by voting people out of ofﬁce, whereas Turner said politicians stop listening to the people and vote with their political party. Coble reminded the audience that he voted against the stimulus. “It is sounds good, feel good legislation.” Turner, however, said that the stimulus stopped the economy from spiraling out of control, but noted it should not have been used to bail out states. On health care reform, Coble said the legislation passed this year needed to be replaced. Turner agreed that some parts need to be changed, but argued that “healthcare reform did not go far enough.”
Archdale candidates speak their minds
rchdale used to be a small little community without a water system, a sewer system, not even a stoplight, said Archdale Mayor Bert Lance-Stone at the Oct. 14 forum.
Stone has served as mayor since 2000 and served on City Council for eight years prior to that. Councilmen Larry Warlick (Ward 1) and Lewis Dorsett (Ward 4), both unoppposed, also attended the forum. Councilman Eddie Causey (at-large), unopposed, was unable to attend. “I moved to Archdale in 1969,” said Stone. “I remem-
ber Archdale when it was very small little community with no water, no sewer and no stoplights, but it had a wonderful neighborhood feel. It’s still a wonderful community, and (serving) has been a wonderful opportunity for me. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.” Dorsett said Archdale’s emphasis on infrastructure has added to the city’s growth potential. “We’ve spent a lot of time and effort on infrastructure,” he pointed out. “Just this past week we picked up our water from the Randleman Reservoir and, with two interstates intersecting Archdale, growth is coming.” Councilman Larry Warlick (Ward 1) added, “This is an

Tell us what we’re doing right, but also tell us what we’re doing wrong and what you’d like to see done differently.”

Which of these three, do you think, proved neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers? He said, "The one who showed mercy on him." And Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."
everal area churches will celebrate Halloween with carnivals, pumpkin patches and other special events. Churches with events include:
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.

Halloween-themed walkathon Oct. 29
s her senior project, Briana Livengood is raising money for Wheatmore High School’s students in the functional curriculum classroom.
The class offers academics, prevocational training, independent living skills and socialization for students with disabilities, said Livengood. To raise money for supplies and field trips, she will hold a Halloween-themed walkathon at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 29, at Creekside Park. The date is on a teacher
workday. Registration will be held at the large picnic shelter. Walkers should solicit donations. “Please dress up in your favorite costume and join us on your day off for a great cause for the community,” Livengood said. “We encourage all of you to participate in this event and encourage any business donations.” Breakfast donations will be provided by Panera Bread and candy will be provided by the Livengood family.
Halloween doesn’t have to be dangerous On a potentially dangerous night of the year for child pedestrians, the Randolph County chapter of Safe Kids USA urges parents to prepare children to act safely and drivers to take extra precautions. “Kids need proper safety instruction before they go out trick-or-treating,” says Shea Cox, Safe Kids Randolph County coordinator. “Many kids will be out trickor-treating while it is dark and thus more difficult for drivers to see them.” She adds that children younger than 12 should not cross a street without an adult. If older kids are mature enough to go trickor-treating without adult supervision, par-
ents should make sure they go in a group and stick to a predetermined route with good lighting. Drivers need to be extra alert as there will be more children on the streets and sidewalks they may be focused on gathering candy and the excitement of the holiday. For more tips on how to help kids become safer pedestrians on Halloween, as well as throughout the year, visit www. safekids.org. Safe Kids Randolph County works to prevent unintentional childhood injury, the leading cause of death and disability to children ages 1-18.

The campaign video, shown at the meeting by United Way staff member Jane Liebscher of Archdale, highlights the BackPack Program, which helps COAT provide backpacks of food to students at Allen Jay Elementary School. Fannie, one of the many animated characters at Archdale Senior Center, is included in the video and in some ads. Brodd encouraged those who do not hold campaigns in the workplace, to consider that this year. Randolph County Commissioner Darrell Frye of Archdale reiterated that. His employer, Harris and Covington, for a few years
at work in Archdale-Trinity dropped the campaign because of the economic times. “Last fall we did a campaign and we were amazed,” Frye said. “We gave our employees a chance to decide for themselves [if they want to give]. We found out that our employees were thankful because they felt blessed and had a responsibility to help.” A donor may designate which United Way should
receive the donation, as well as decide what program. This is effective when the donor may work in one area and live in another, Brodd said. Bobby Smith, president of United Way of Greater High Point, encouraged small business owners to consider a campaign or a donation through the United Way. “If we haven’t called you, you call us,” Smith said. The number is 8834127 or visit www.unitedwayhp.org. This story was written by NEWS Editor Kathy Stuart, a board member of United Way of Greater High Point.
