Board questions DavidsonWorks actions

Recent expenditures by DavidsonWorks were the subject of intense discussion at Tuesday’s meeting of the Davidson County Board of Commissioners. Nancy Borrell, director of DavidsonWorks, first gave an overview of the organization’s recent activities. It received a $1.1 million federal stimulus grant this year, and so far, it has spent $775,390, or 65 percent of the grant. It is

required to spend 70 percent by June 30, 2010, and to spend all of it by June 30, 2011. “You know I didn’t support the stimulus money, Ms. Borrell,” said Commissioner Larry Potts. “I’ve got some questions for you.” Potts asked Borrell and Steven Moore, DavidsonWorks board of directors chairman, about the number of people served by DavidsonWorks pro-

‘It’s no secret that we as manufacturers are struggling just to survive in this county.’ — Martha Martin Door Tech Owner grams, and how many of them are employed as a result. They said they served 589 people. Of those, 64 received permanent jobs and the rest are

still in school or going through job training. Job training scholarships were given to 157 people. Borrell said that 96 young people were placed

at 65 employer work sites and paid by DavidsonWorks as part of the new summer youth employment program. Martha Martin, owner of Door Tech, was one of many employers invited to take part. “I thank those of you responsible for approving the funds for these young participants, not only for what it did for them, but what it did for us as an employer,” Martin said.

“It’s no secret that we as manufacturers are struggling just to survive in this county.” Ronte Burgess, a 16year-old who completed summer youth program with Davidson County Cooperative Extension, told the board that the program has encouraged him to go out and get another job, but he knows he needs to prepare for

GREENSBORO — Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton expressed high regard for Davidson County Community College (DCCC) recently while attending the annual meeting of the N.C. Boards of Education Association meeting. “ D av i d son County Dalton Community College is doing a very good job, and I think the people in that county can be proud of the initiatives that you see going on there,” Dalton said in an interview on Nov. 16 at the Sheraton

When ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” came to Lexington, it not only impacted Tricia Creasey and her family, but also the county where they live. Robin Bivens, executive director of the Lexington Tourism Authority, said that visitors purchased a total of 940 room nights over the build period, which equates to about $140,000 in economic spending in Davidson County. In contrast, Lexington’s annual Barbecue Festival generated 480 confirmed hotel room nights this year. “We estimate that they spend about $150 a day,” Bivens said. “That in-

Alternative Learning Center named Business of the Month BY KARISSA MINN Staff Writer

The Thomasville City Beautification Committee has named The Thomasville City Schools Alternative Learning Center as November Business of the Month for renovations that turned a vacant building into a school. The Alternative Learning Center assists students who have been expelled from other schools, typically for behavioral or truancy reasons, said Principal Terrell Scott. About 20 children in grades six through 12 currently attend the center, now located at 19 E. Guilford St. The Business of the Month recognition

is based on the most improved landscaping or structural improvements, and the Alternative Learning Center has both. Scott said that the building was constructed in the 1800s and had been vacant for several years before the center moved into it in August. “It had been occupied by an accounting firm, so it was a bunch of little 10-foot-by10-foot offices,” she said. “It was completely gutted — I think to the tune of over $300,000 in renovations to it from Thomasville City Schools.” The center had been housed on the Baptist Children’s Home Mills Home campus for about 12 years, but Mills Home had dif-

Arts United Silver Trout Arts returns to local school TIMES STAFF REPORT

Two DCCC students received scholarships valued at $5,000 from the State Employees Credit Union (SECU) Foundation. From left are Libby Swicegood, manager of the Lexington SECU branch; scholarship student Ashley Craver; Dr. Mary Rittling, DCCC president; scholarship student Jessica Hullette; and Myra Thompson, DCCC Public Information Officer and member of the Lexington SECU Advisory Board.

DCCC students awarded scholarships from SECU TIMES STAFF REPORT

The State Employees’ Credit Union Foundation recently awarded $5,000 scholarships to Davidson County Community College students Ashley N. Craver and Jessica L. Hullette. The scholarships were presented in a ceremony in DCCC’s new Conference Center. Craver is from Lexington, and she graduated from West Davidson High School. Majoring in Human Services Technology, she plans to transfer to a four-year university to pursue a degree in social work. In addition to the scholarship, Craver was selected as a DCCC Ambassador. Hullette, from Thomasville, is an honor graduate of East Davidson High School where she played in the band and was a member of the Beta Club. She is a Dean’s List student at DCCC majoring in medical assisting. She plans to pursue a four-year degree.

The scholarships provide each student with $1,250 per semester for up to four consecutive semesters. They are awarded based on SECU’s philosophy of “People Helping People,” recognizing student leadership, character, integrity, and community involvement. The scholarships may be used for tuition, textbooks, educational supplies, and transportation. Libby Swicegood, vice president and manager of the Lexington SECU branch, helped present the scholarships. “DCCC and the SECU Foundation have a lot in common because both represent people helping people,” she said. “We are pleased that collectively, our members can continue to help DCCC students further their education. It is with great pleasure that we award these scholarships to two, high-achieving, deserving young women,” she said. In addition to the scholarships awarded to Craver and Hullette, the SECU

Foundation gives two $5,000 scholarships to students at the other 57 community colleges across the state, representing a total value of $580,000. In addition, it awards $10,000 scholarships to deserving seniors at public high schools across North Carolina. SECU is a non-profit financial cooperative owned by its members. With more than 1.5 million members, SECU is the second largest credit union in the United States. The SECU Foundation promotes local community development through projects in the areas of education, health, and human services.

“A class act!” is what Mary Reidesel (Music Teacher, Pindhurst Schools) called Silver Trout Arts. This duo has been spreading their message of effective communication and creative writing throughout North Carolina and beyond. “Silver Trout carries inspiration and instruction to students through storytelling, poetry, puppetry and original music. “Susana and Timmy Abell are generous with their talent, energy and knowledge,” said Anne Rowson of Madison County Arts Council. Through ArtSmart, Arts United hires professional artists to go into the schools with relevant curriculum-based programs that are integrated into the standard course of study. Arts United for Davidson County believes that arts programs are essential to the intellectual and personal growth of every young person. The arts help young people develop self-confidence, higher order thinking skills, discipline, interpersonal skills, academic success and creativity. “During the past quarter century, literally thousands of school based programs have demonstrated beyond question that the arts can not only bring

coherence to our fragmented academic world, but through the arts, students’ performance in other academic disciplines can be enhanced as well,” said Ernest Boyer, President of Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching. Susana and Timmy Abell will be performing for students at Liberty Drive Elementary School in Thomasville, Nov. 30Dec. 4.

Art provides the catalyst for connections between subjects. It aids comprehension and retention. When you integrate the arts into education, students are more excited about learning and teachers are more engaged in the whole learning process. Arts United develops, initiates, supports and nurtures quality arts projects throughout Davidson County.

Cooperative Extension to hold Business course for farmers, entrepreneurs BY AMY-LYNN ALBERTSON Guest Columnist

During these tough economic times, many businesses are struggling to stay afloat and farm businesses are no different. A good business plan can help you determine if your business is viable and more importantly profitable. New and experienced business owners, regardless of history or current situation, can benefit from business planning. As an experienced producer, you may develop a business plan to: map out a transition from conventional to organic production management; expand your operation; incorporate more family members or partners into you business; transfer or sell the business; add value to your existing operation through product processing, direct sales or cooperative marketing. It’s never too late to begin planning! If you are a first time rural land owner or beginning farmer who may be considering the establishment of a pumpkin patch, horse boarding or community supported agriculture (CSA) enterprise, business planning can help you identify management tasks and financing options that are compatible with your long-term personal, environmental , economic and community values. Business planning is an on-going, problem solving process that can indentify business challenges and opportu-

nities that apply to your marketing, operations, human resources and finances, and develop strategic objectives to move your business beyond its current situation toward your future business vision. Once developed, your business plan can be used as a long-term, internal organizing tool or to communicate your plans to others outside your business. Cooperative Extension is offering a 5-week course on Business Planning for Farms and other Entrepreneurs, beginning Dec. 1, 2009. The class will meet from 9AM to noon at the Forsyth County Extension Office in Winston Salem. The fee is $100, per farm/ business and covers an excess of $150 worth of materials. More than

one participant for each farm/business is allowed and couples are encouraged to study together. Partial scholarships based on need are available. Please contact Amy-Lynn Albertson at 242-2085 for more information.

Checkouts and markups VIEWPOINT

SUSAN ESTRICK Syndicated Columnist It’s that time of the year again. Time to feel like a fool. I started early this year, at Bed Bath and Beyond. Mind you, I love the store — two shiny new floors of beautiful things that you don’t have to try on. I’m a goner for candles and diffusers, not to mention cordless vacuum cleaners. And they even have beauty products and potato chips in the checkout line. It should be bliss. It is, until I see everyone else heading for the register fingering their stacks of full-size coupons, each one good for 20 percent off. I get coupons, too. They come in the mail once in a while, and I put them in a pile, and then they disappear. I have tried keeping them in my car, but they don’t stay there, either. One way or another, they are rarely with me when I take the turn on Beyond Way (I’m telling you, it’s a great store). And even if they were, how many would I have? Before I moved this last time, I saved every one of the coupons I saw for weeks, and maybe I had six. Believe me, six is nothing compared to everyone else in line. The most I ever saw was a woman who had them organized by denomination — some for 20 percent off, some for $10 dollars off, etc. For each item, she’d do the math and hand the cashier a coupon. She had a lot of items. I asked her how she did it. My mother-in-law, she responded, and everyone nodded. They deliver piles of those coupons to apartment buildings around town that other women’s mothers and mothers-in-law live in. I don’t have either, a mother or a mother-in-law. I hear

my mother’s voice telling me that if only I’d done something different, she’d still be alive and living in a condo where women collect coupons for their daughters and daughters-in-law. It’s a slow process, with all the coupons. And it’s hard not to think, as you stand there watching the person in front of you pay less for each item, that you are paying way too much. If they can afford to charge 20 percent less for every item in the store, they must be marking everything up by more than enough to cover those margins. And then you wonder: What kind of an idiot would pay full price for everything? Gotta be a complete fool. That’s my mother talking, and of course, she’s talking about me. Even when I have my “courtesy card” with me or can remember which phone number it’s attached to, if I don’t get the discount on the spot — and often that’s not how it works — I’m likely to “lose” it, which is to say I’ll misplace the money-off coupon on the register tape or the “reward” that comes by mail. And then it expires. And neither of my children will go with me if I am going to demand that they honor my expired coupon. So there I am, the sucker again. I remember when one of the car dealers announced that they would simply tell people the price of a car. That’s what I want when I go shopping. I don’t want to have to bring a guy or a calculator. I don’t want to have to work. Some people love to negotiate. I fight for a living. I think I’m very good at it. It’s not what I do for pleasure. For pleasure, I like to shop, not calculate and negotiate. It’s bad enough when you travel and realize the people sitting next to you paid half of what you paid for the ticket. OK, they decided earlier. Fair enough. But why should I need a mother-inlaw to buy great candles?

Understanding our hollow ‘centrists’ VIEWPOINT

JOE CONASON Syndicated Columnist The puzzling thing about politicians of either party who claim to be “centrist” or “moderate” is how much they sometimes sound like party-line right-wing Republicans. Distinguishing among these species of politicians can be almost impossible during the current struggle over health care reform, especially when a senator like Blanche Lambert Lincoln of Arkansas tries to explain herself. Like so many of the Republicans they try to emulate, the conservative Democrats claim to worry about spending and deficits — except with respect to programs that benefit them, their favorite constituents or the lobbyists who pay their campaign expenses. Facing re-election and plummeting poll numbers, Lincoln voted to commence debate last weekend. But then she turned around and warned that she would probably join a Republican filibuster against the Democratic health reform bill. Why? Because the Democratic legislation, favored by a clear majority, is likely to include a public option. Last July, Lincoln published an essay on the op-ed page of the largest daily paper in Arkansas that stated clearly why a public option should be part of a broader reform plan: “Individuals should be able to choose

from a range of quality health insurance plans. Options should include private plans as well as a quality, affordable public plan or non-profit plan that can accomplish the same goals as those of a public plan.” That makes perfect sense in her state, where Blue Cross-Blue Shield controls 75 percent of the insurance market, and throughout much of the South, where similar monopoly conditions prevail. But over the summer, Lincoln and certain other members of her party were simultaneously spooked by low poll numbers and persuaded by big insurance and pharmaceutical donations. So more recently, she has learned to parrot the Republican talking points about the public option and the general topic of health care. The fact that those talking points are largely untrue doesn’t seem to trouble her or the other nominally Democratic senators who have likewise threatened to join the filibuster. “For some in my caucus, when they talk about a public option, they’re talking about another entitlement program, and we can’t afford that right now as a nation. ... I would not support a solely government-funded public option. We can’t afford that,” she has said. Yet if Lincoln has actually read the Democratic health care bill — and the analysis provided by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office — then she knows that none of those complaints are valid. The public option is not an entitlement program, although the health care bill will provide subsidies to help families that cannot afford health insurance to buy either public or private plans. Second, the public option proposed in either the Senate or House versions of

the bill would not be funded solely by the government, because both bills require the plan to be supported fully through premiums paid by the insured. Third, the proposed bill is not only deficit-neutral but is estimated to reduce the federal deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars over the next two decades. Now, of course, Lincoln — just like her fellow selfproclaimed moderates — is well aware of all those basic aspects of the bill because she insists that she has read every word. Still, she tells the world that we cannot afford real reform. What can we afford? According to these worthy senators, we can afford to spend a million dollars per soldier to send another 40,000 troops to Afghanistan — an amount that would add up over the coming decade to approximately $400 billion, with no obvious benefit. And according to Lincoln, who chairs the Senate Agriculture Committee, we can afford to spend $14 billion a year or more on subsidies that mainly enrich corporate farms and wealthy growers. Back home in Phillips County, Ark., for example, where her family owns considerable acreage in rice and soybeans, big farmers have cashed U.S. government checks totaling more than $300 million over the past 10 years. So when these centrists warn that we cannot afford health care reform, doublecheck their facts — and ask why they prefer to spend tax dollars on wasteful wars and corporate subsidies rather than health care for every American.

ferent plans for the building it was renting. Scott said that construction took place over the summer months, so that the Alternative Learning Center could move into the new building at the start of the 2009-10 school year. Now, there are more spacious classrooms and office areas for the students and teachers. Changes to the building’s exterior and the surrounding property were made as well. The parking lot has been resurfaced, and a basketball court soon will be added. Some of the students recently helped plant pansies in flower boxes in front of the building. “We put up a flagpole, and that will make it look

more like a school,� Scott said. “We still have a sign and a mailbox coming, and some other things that will make it look a little better.� Scott said that both students and teachers appreciate the new working space. “It’s beautiful,� she said. “Everything is brand new. It’s like night and day. The other place was really dark and old, so this is just a lot brighter and a lot better to boost everybody’s morale.� Scott said that the goal of the Alternative Learning Center is to get the students back into regular schools by fixing the behaviors that got them kicked out. “They’re put on a contract when they get here, and if they’re able to do those things, then they get back pretty quickly,� she said. “If they don’t meet the goals on the

ACTIONS From page A1 college by focusing on school. Whitney McLaughlin, a college advisor at Lexington and Thomasville High Schools, said that money spent in the Carolina Advising Core program has helped students at the two city school systems prepare for college. “In Thomasville, we had over 85 seniors register to take the SAT for the October test, and that was a school record,� McLaughlin said. “We recently had a college application day last week at both schools. In Lexington, out of 166 seniors, we had 126 seniors submit college applications.� Borrell said that DavidsonWorks offers training scholarships for adults through its JobsNOW program, which is a partnership between the organization and Davidson County Community College. It also has awarded three business employee training grants to Bunce Building, SII Dry Kilns and IV-S Metal Stamping. Linda Burgess was a dislocated worker who completed DavidsonWorks’ work experience program and is now employed full-time with the Davidson County Health Department. “We worked to figure out how I was going to use my training after being laid off from Thomasville Furniture,� Burgess said. “Without that program, there wouldn’t have been that success for me, and I thank you for giving us that opportunity.� Ineta Cherry, who works with DavidsonWorks in the JobLink system in Thomasville, also helps to run Project Re-entry, which helps prisoners integrate back into society.

contract, they don’t get to go, but we try to get them back.� The students take four 90-minute classes per day, in addition to a 40-minute group counseling session, where they work on anger management, goalsetting and social skills. Judy Younts, executive director of Communities In Schools of Thomasville, currently comes in on Wednesdays to teach the students etiquette and plans to take them out to dinner. “It’s a very structured environment, but it’s also very nurturing,� Scott said. “These kids know, without a doubt, that we care about them and want them to get it together and get out of here.� Staff Writer Karissa Minn can be reached at 888-3576 or newsdesk@ tvilletimes.com.

Potts asked if a TriadWorks summit costing $34,382.90 also was funded by stimulus money. “I realize that all summits and all conferences are important,� Potts said, “but paying $600 for flowers, $22,000 for two speakers from Illinois, and $8,800 for beverages and food, I find to be an outrage in this economy.� Moore said that the summit was not funded by the stimulus grant or local tax dollars, but rather from a federal investment grant that could not be used for participant programs. Potts said that the money still came from taxpayers and didn’t have to be spent. He also noted that the summit was approved not by the 31-member board of directors, but the seven-member executive committee. “We had a budget set aside of over $37,000 for the summit, and we were under budget,� Borrell said. Borrell said that the summit was a requirement of a transformation action plan with the U.S. Department of Labor. She said that if DavidsonWorks did not spend the money, it would receive less federal funding the following year and be able to help fewer people. Moore said that his goal for the summit was to energize and inform people about economic development. He acknowledged that the organization may have made a bad decision. “I’m not volunteering my time for summits,� Moore said. “I’m volunteering my time because of what these folks over here told you.� Commissioner Max Walser, who serves on the DavidsonWorks board of directors, said that he supported the stimulus grant, but he was very concerned about the amount spent on the summit. “That does not mean I want to detract from the good work that I’ve heard about in here,� Walser said. “To say that you had to spend this money or it would go back, I think, is pretty shallow. Let some money go back if you have to.�

RELIGION

Two letters and a chance meeting KEEPING THE FAITH

DOUG CREAMER Guest Columnist

My wife and I were shopping one day when a young couple approached me. The fellow seemed to recognize me. As he approached he asked, “Didn’t you use to teach at North Stanly?” I smiled and said yes. He wasn’t one of my students; he just remembered I taught there. Then he told me he enjoyed reading my column in the paper. I went to my PO Box and picked up my mail. Tucked between all the junk mail was a letter from a reader who wanted to let me know how much they enjoyed my columns. The writer told me that they had used my column in their Sunday school class on several occasions. It is so encouraging to receive those kinds of letters. I received another letter this week that has a good story that goes along with it. It begins seventeen years ago when a friend asked for a favor. The individual was moving into an apartment and needed a character reference in order to avoid putting down a deposit with the power company. I understood the situation and wanted to help my friend avoid this deposit. When I went to sign the form for my friend I noticed it said that I would have to pay up to one hundred and fifty dollars if my friend failed to pay their bill. I remember a slight hesitation before signing the letter, but knew my friend would be fine. I should have listened to that still, small voice. One day I received a letter informing me that I would be charged the entire amount because my friend had failed to pay their bill. I was stunned and went to my friend to straighten out the matter. They were shocked at the situation and promised it would be fixed. Long story short, it wasn’t and I had to pay. I stewed over the problem for quite a while. One day I read the parable of the unforgiving servant. You remember the story; it’s where a servant was forgiven for a multimillion dollar debt. The servant immediately goes out and puts a fellow servant in prison for owing him less than twenty dollars. He showed no mercy after

receiving such great mercy from his master. God began working on me about my own situation. He reminded me of all the things he had forgiven me for and wondered why I couldn’t forgive this little debt. I pointed out to God that I didn’t consider this a little debt. He helped me to see that I was acting like the unforgiving servant in the story. One evening, I sat down and wrote my friend a letter telling the story of the parable and ending the letter with our situation. I told the individual that I forgave them from the bottom of my heart. I also included in the letter a copy of the letter I received from the power company. It took a little while for my faith to overcome my feelings about the situation. Time passed and we lost contact with each other. The other evening I dropped the mail on the counter like always. My wife pointed out that there was a letter hidden among the bills. I checked the return address and didn’t recognize it. When I opened the envelop I discovered a card with a letter and a check inside. The check was for a debt that was no longer owed, with a note thanking me for my kindness and forgiveness. The letter was the letter I sent my friend seventeen years earlier. I cannot express the joy I felt in my heart. When we show kindness and forgiveness to others we are exhibiting the loving character of God. Whether we know God or not, experiencing mercy can change our perspective on life. We desperately need the love and mercy of God every day for the many ways we walk away from Him. Isn’t it

FROM PAGE A1 attract business here? What can we do to provide educational opportunities that give the job skills for people who will fill those jobs?â&#x20AC;? Last month, Dalton became founding chairman of the Joining Our Businesses and Schools (JOBS) Commission. The purpose of JOBS is to align high school curricula closer to local economies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our state has seven defined economic development regions,â&#x20AC;? Dalton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As members of the JOBS Commission, we want leaders of each of these regions to pay attention to what they want their economy to be in five or ten years. What can they reasonably expect it to be and are we providing the job skills through our educational initiatives to address those job needs.â&#x20AC;? The lieutenant governor is optimistic that North Carolina will be able to improve its economic situation in the near future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, we would prefer a better economy, but it is a global situation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think North Carolina is well positioned, as we pull out of this recession.â&#x20AC;? Dalton pointed to national business-oriented publications to under-

DCCC From page A1 Greensboro Four Seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One is their mobile health lab. Allied health will continue to be a major force in the economy and there will continue to be jobs in this field. The babyboomers are aging out, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to go to China or India for your health care.â&#x20AC;? Dalton, 60, is a babyboomer himself. The Rutherfordton native who earned undergraduate (in Business Administration) and law degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill, was completing his sixth term in the N.C. Senate when he was elected lieutenant governor last year. The practicing attorney campaigned in Thomasville for the Democratic nomination for the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2 executive position and is aware of the Chair Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges in a global economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m from an area that was very much the same way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; very heavily invested in textiles and furniture â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and both of those are now gone,â&#x20AC;? Dalton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reason we need to focus on those future years and what we are going to define that economy as being. What can we do to

score his optimism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recently Site Selection Magazine rated us the best place in the United States for businesses to do business,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had that rating for eight out of the last nine years. Forbes magazine rated us No. 5; CEO magazine rated us No. 2. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a great state in which to do business. What we need to see is the capital markets allow money to be available for businesses again. When we see that, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see this economy bounce back and I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see North Carolina as a leader.â&#x20AC;? The lieutenant governor enjoys being a leader and compared his new job with his six terms in the state senate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bit different, because before I was involved in passing legislation and creating the laws,â&#x20AC;? Dalton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in charge of leading the state and directing it forward, but they go hand in glove. You cannot accomplish much as a leader in the executive branch without the assistance in the General Assembly, but I think

my experience there has helped this administration to move forward.â&#x20AC;? On Nov. 2 Dalton was the featured speaker at a meeting, hosted by the DCCC Small Business Center and the Davidson County Young Leadership Forum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This community college has a program going in advanced manufacturing,â&#x20AC;? he said of DCCC during the Greensboro interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have a lot of manufacturing jobs, but it will be more in the advanced manufacturing area.â&#x20AC;? As lieutenant governor, Dalton has a seat on the N.C. Board of Community Colleges and the N.C., Board of Education. He apparently enjoyed his visit to DCCC, which seems to fit in well with what he is trying to accomplish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look forward to going back to that region,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and talking again about the future economy and what we can do with our educational system to make sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re providing those job skills that we need for the future.â&#x20AC;?

Bivens said that when the episode airs in February, it will generate excitement and publicity for the Lexington area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it has already been good for the community, with everybody working together,â&#x20AC;? Bivens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that when program is aired, the nation will see just how well our community has worked together to step up to this, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing for us.â&#x20AC;? Mark Scott, Thomasville Tourism director, said he has not yet noticed an increase in tourism from the event. It may get a boost when ABC airs the episode, which will feature local furniture. Robert Stamper, senior vice president of marketing at Lexington Home Brands, said that his company donated more than 40 furniture items to the house. The company first invited the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designers to browse its retail store in Lexington, and then allowed them to select items from its wholesale showroom on National Highway in Thomasville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple of things in that home were literally brand new from the October market, and our dealers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have them for another several weeks,â&#x20AC;? Stamper said.

He estimated that more than 50 Lexington Home Brands employees volunteered during the build. About an additional dozen were onsite to help install the furniture in the house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of our employees knew [Tricia] as a teacher, because their kids went to her school,â&#x20AC;? Stamper said. Brian Starnes, president of Linwood Furniture, said that his company donated occasional pieces to the house, including some from the Hart Square Collection made of solid hickory. They also built a large shelving unit especially for the Creasey family, which was made of wood from their original porch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of our community down here, so we were glad to help,â&#x20AC;? Starnes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little tiring, but it was worth it.â&#x20AC;? Also contributing to the house was Bob Timberlake Inc. of Lexington. Local nonprofit organizations also benefited from the event. More than 20,000 food and drink items were collected during a food drive held by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,â&#x20AC;? many of them donated by Walmart. Volunteers were asked to bring items of canned food, drinks and pet food when they visited the site. The items were split and delivered to Pastorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pantry and Crisis Ministry of Davidson County.

Lexington tailback Grayson Marquez finds room to run over the left side as the Thomasville defense gives chase in the third round of the NCHSAA 2-A state playoffs Friday night at Cushwa Stadium.

STREAK ENDED, RIVALRY CHARGED Yellow Jackets dash Bulldogs’ chance at another state championship BY ZACH KEPLEY Sports Editor It is safe to say the Lexington-Thomasville rivalry is officially back to being one of the most hotly contested in the state. Spotting the Yellow Jackets a 20-point lead midway through the third quarter of its third round playoff game, Thomasville roared back to lead 21-20 with 5:56 to play. Unfazed, the Jackets responded with a score, stunning Thomasville 28-21 in front of a packed

Davidson County Community College is nearing Region X conference play, and will finally be getting some of its key players back from injury and illness for Monday’s game against Vance-Granville Community College. Phillip Williams and Kimani Hunt will return to the lineup, and Justin Glover should not be far behind. Glover could be expected back as soon as the first conference game against Oxford on Dec. 5, pending a release from his doctor. “Hopefully, those guys will be able to come back, fit in and continue to play together,” said head coach Matt Ridge. Division II Vance-Granville will challenge the Storm, led by their 6-8, 300-pound center that averages a double-double. They also return the division leader in scoring a year ago. The 5-3 Storm have seen various players step up in the absence of the injured, which will help them on Monday night. “We are going to have our work cut out for us,” said Ridge.

house at Cushwa Stadium Friday night. The Yellow Jackets snapped a losing streak to the Bulldogs that dates back to 1993. “I told our kids that you are not just playing for us this year, you are playing for all of those guys over the last 16 years that have lost to these guys,” said an emotional head coach of the Jackets, Chris Deal. “What a great crowd tonight. A lot of these people that came home for Thanksgiving saw something special.” Leading 20-0 in the third quarter, the Jack-

ets were cruising, controlling the line of scrimmage on both sides. With its hopes of advancing hanging in the balance, Thomasville pulled itself up off the canvas in dramatic fashion. Quin Riley scored two rushing touchdowns and Kesean Green one, as the Bulldogs barked and snarled their way back to lead 21-20 with 5:56 to play. Lexington looked nothing like it did the first time around against the Bulldogs, and

Having the guts to be a hat man Certain types of clothing mark the type of person you are. Blue jeans and T-shirts give the wearer a cavalier look of relaxed appearance, even if they are $200 jeans and a $50 T-shirt. Sweaters look preppy on most guys. I assume what I wear is thought of as trying to evoke a certain image and I suppose subconsciously, it is. The thing I wear that brings more comment and yet it’s worn solely for utility is a hat. I can trace the time I decided to wear a hat down to a specific year and week. I was fishing Nag’s Head. There were small blues stealing my bait and I resolved to catch them. I learned how to catch small blues that day and I learned I need to wear a hat. It was a cool day with a brisk wind. The sun was bright and, since it was late November,

OFF THE PORCH

DICK JONES Outdoor Columnist shining from the south. I absolutely toasted my right ear that day. It was sore for weeks, it blistered up and got downright crispy. It didn’t get straightened out until almost Christmas. Up to that time, I was a cap man. When I was riding motorcycles, I wore stroker caps. These were little English caps with a Bell Helmet logo on the face of the cap. When I started shooting competi-

tively, I started wearing ball caps with various shooting logos on the face. Both were functional and kept the sun out of my eyes, but afforded no protection for the sides of my face and my ears. When I decided to try a hat, I put a fedora type hat on and thought I looked pompous. I’d always prided myself on not being prissy and I guess the hat just made me feel prissy. I tried a boonie hat, (a floppy hat kind of like a sailor’s hat that has a short, floppy brim all around). It served the purpose but I decided it looked too sloppy. Once again, I was aware that apparently, I did care about how I looked. I think it may be “reverse vanity.” Finally, I bit the bullet and started wearing the fedora. The first one was canvas. It worked but it

Vegas vacation fitting Resolve to avoid injury when exercising for NASCAR MS

Las Vegas doesn’t beckon visitors like an oasis in the desert; Las Vegas literally IS an oasis in the desert. And this one is no mirage. According to the Chamber of Commerce’s Web Site, about 40 million tourists visit Las Vegas annually. On Monday, Nov. 30, a large number of them will arrive, shall we say, much more speedily than usual, as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s Week blows into town for the first time in history. After three decades in New York City, and with the very active cooperation and support of the state of Nevada, NASCAR decided the time had come for a change of pace (pun definitely intended). The season-ending 2009 Cup Series awards dinner will be held at the Wynn Las Vegas, a luxury resort located on the famed Strip. Other events and appearances during the week, including things like the Aflac Pit Stop Tour, the NASCAR Street Tour, the Chasers for Charity Fanfest and Tony Stewart’s annual Stewie Awards, will be taking place in venues all over town, from world-famous hotels and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway

to the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign; you gotta love that one. Frank Caliendo will host the premier event of the week, the awards dinner on Friday night. However, there is no word yet on whether Caliendo, a well-known celebrity impersonator, will be appearing as himself. When you attempt to describe one of the most outrageously exciting things in America, phrases like “heartpounding,” “pulse-racing” and “adrenaline rush” come to mind. The trick is trying to figure out what you’re talking about: NASCAR or Las Vegas. The idea of this marriage between the two is really kind of dazzling. The visionary builders of the city seemed to know this day would come; they named some of their most famous landmarks in its honor. King Arthur of England was known for his honesty, chivalry and valiance. With the help of his teacher and mentor Merlin, he ruled his kingdom for many years with fairness and honor. In NASCAR, Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus have accomplished much the same thing. So one couldn’t

Of the millions of New Year’s resolutions made each year, perhaps none is more repeated than the resolution to get in better shape. Each year, millions of people resolve to shed a few extra pounds or simply get healthier, with varying degrees of success. One of the ways to ensure the resolve to get healthier is successful is to exercise safely. Veteran athletes and seasoned professional trainers all note the importance of safety when it comes to exercise. Simply diving right into exercise can be a recipe for disaster, often leading to injury, especially for those people new to exercise or returning after a long layoff. For those who have resolved to get in better shape this season, consider the following exercise safety tips. • Don’t push it. The body responds differently to exercise as it ages, and many people who were once exercise afficionados but stopped regularly exercising could likely make the mistake that they can still exercise as hard as they did in their youth. However, pushing it after a long layoff is potentially dangerous and could result in a number of injuries. While you might one day be able to return to form, initially it’s best to take it easy. Stop exercising immediately if you begin to experience any of the following symptoms: - Dizziness - Nausea - Cold sweats - Muscle cramps - Pain or pressure in the chest (particularly leftchest or mid-chest) - Joint pain • Maintain proper breathing or cease exercising if you can’t. Whenever exercising, you should

If you cannot breathe properly, stop exercising immediately. Once your system has rebounded and you begin to feel better, if you’re going to return to your exercise regimen, simply tone it down, performing each exercise more slowly. • Stay hydrated. Staying hydrated throughout an exercise routine will increase flexibility and replace the water you lose by sweating. While some might feel this will counteract any weight loss, losing water weight

is not the type of weight loss you should be aiming for. Be sure to drink lots of water before, during and after workouts. • Remember the wisdom of Mom and Dad. Nearly everyone who ever went to the beach as a child recalls Mom and Dad advising them to stay out of the water after eating. That same advice you heard as a child is still applicable today as an adult. While it’s acceptable to go for a light walk after a small meal, avoid

RIVALRY From page B1 proved one final time they belonged this deep in the playoffs. All it took was three plays beginning at its own 39 to find paydirt. Duke Horton ran for two yards on first down, then quarterback Al Challenger hit Marcus Pittman over the middle for a big gain to the Thomasville 23. Then, on an unusual play, the Jackets took the lead for good. Challenger pitched to Marquez Grayson, who momentarily fumbled the ball. He scooped it up and was hit on the play, but kept his feet moving and escaped for a 23-yard touchdown run. The two-point conversion was successful, and Thomasville was unable to do anything with the ball on two final drives as time expired in the game and their season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We struggled really

60 percent of which are in North America. That said, golfing is clearly a popular sport, which makes gifting the family golfer an easy and enjoyable endeavor, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the holiday season, Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day or even Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. The family golfer might like a set of custom made golf clubs,

though thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best purchased with the golfer on hand. Other gifts that are sure to please are a set of personalized or top-of-the-line golf balls, a new golf bag emblazoned with your loved oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initials or even a free round of golf at one of his or her favorite nearby golf courses.

bad blocking them,â&#x20AC;? said THS head coach Allen Brown, who could have won his 300th game at THS with a victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We struggled last week and again this week.â&#x20AC;? F i v e plays is all Lexington needed to start the game, as they overcame a Brown key thirdand-nine play during the drive. After just getting the first down, Duke Horton made his second huge run of the drive, ripping through the heart of the THS defense virtually untouched, racing 47 yards to the house to put Lexington up 7-0 with 10:06 showing in the first quarter. Feeding off the momentum created by its offense, the Yellow Jacket defense came alive, limiting what the Bulldogs could do with the ball.

Thomasvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five possessions in the first half ended punt, interception, punt, interception, punt. The interceptions came deep into Lexington territory. Lexingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense continued to have success, scoring once more before the half and midway through the third quarter. Like the champions they are, Thomasville stormed back, but Brown did not think for a second they were out of danger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good place to be in, but we did not play enough defense there at the end,â&#x20AC;? said Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a lot of weapons and you had to be worried. You were glad to be ahead, but you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you were out of the woods yet.â&#x20AC;? Thomasville ends its season at 9-5.

HAT From page B1 was too hot. Then I tried a Lite Felt hat from Eddie Bauer, (this was back when Eddie Bauer made menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothes). I was a little self conscious, but I soon realized the wonderful benefits of wearing a hat. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wearing felt fedoras and straw panama hats ever since and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine life outdoors without one. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wearing a hat that I get comments from both women and men. I got an occasional â&#x20AC;&#x153;cowboyâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Texâ&#x20AC;? comment when I was younger but now I suppose I look more natural in a hat or maybe I just look grumpy. Guys often tell me theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to wear a hat but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the nerve. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that â&#x20AC;&#x153;reverse vanityâ&#x20AC;? thing. The shade benefits of fedoras and straw hats are obvious. The 360 degree brim protects your neck and ears as well as your face. It keeps the sun out of your eyes, too. If given the choice between a hat and sunglasses, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take the hat every time. True, the wind can blow it off your head but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premium protection. A felt hat keeps you dry by shedding rain. A decent straw hat will

keep you drier than a waterproof ball cap. I spray my hats with Scotchguard to keep them from wilting in the heavy rain. The fact that a good felt hat holds water comes in handy when I need to water my lab, Larry; I just pour the water from the bottle into it and let him drink. In hot weather, the damp hat really feels good when you put it back on your head. I wear straw in summer for coolness and felt in winter. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like stiff hats, they must be soft and pliable for me to wear in either straw or felt. The Lite Felt labeled hats work best for me. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also the cheapest. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried quality Stetson hats and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the stiffness. They get knocked off by limbs, stuff on the boat, or the door frame on the truck. Give me a cheap, soft hat every time. I like about a three and a half inch brim. Under three inches and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough protection, over four inches and the hat wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay on in the wind. On a boat, I keep a cap for when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running and switch to the hat when we anchor or drift. I probably have about a dozen hats in my closet and I have a hard time passing up a nice one in a store. I was reminded of another positive aspect of wearing a hat this

week. Cherie and I were cutting a shooting lane for a deer stand and she was constantly getting slapped in the face by branches. My hat protected me and I was able to cut small trees with immunity from being scratched by falling limbs and briars. I tried to convince her to wear my hat, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have nothing of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably that vanity thing for her, too, though maybe the â&#x20AC;&#x153;reverse vanityâ&#x20AC;? thing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the cause. There was a reason why folks used to wear hats; they make life outdoors in the elements easier. OK, so they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trendy and it does take some getting used to. The fact is, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m up for something that makes me more comfortable. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll admit a fedora on a woman isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t flattering. Of course squinty eyes, crispy ears, and facial scratches arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t either. Dick and Cherie Jones are outdoor writers living in High Point.

SPORTS AVOID From page B2 strenuous exercise for at least 2 hours after eating a big meal. â&#x20AC;˘ Wear appropriate attire. When working out, proper attire isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t whatever looks good on you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to purchase sneakers that support weight-bearing activities and tops that promote movement but arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too loose. If jogging outdoors, be sure to wear a knit cap in colder weather or a baseball cap in warmer temperatures. Both of these will help you maintain a proper body temperature and ward off harmful side effects such as cold, flu or sunburn. â&#x20AC;˘ Stretch, stretch, stretch. Professional athletes make their living with their bodies, and they stretch extensively before each

and every game. Just because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earn a ballplayerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paycheck doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you can avoid stretching. Stretching helps prevent muscle pulls, strains and other injuries, so make sure an adequate stretching routine is a part of your workout. â&#x20AC;˘ Consult or hire a professional. Those who have had an extensive layoff from exercise might want to employ a personal trainer, at least until they get comfortable with a routine. In fact, many fitness clubs offer a handful of free personal training sessions to new members to ensure all members start off safe and avoid injury. Take advantage of such sessions if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re available. If not, hire one of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal trainers, even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only for a few sessions, at the onset of your routine.

VEGAS From page B2 fault them if they experienced a flash of deja vu while passing by the hotel-slash-castle â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excaliburâ&#x20AC;? on their way down the Strip. No official plans have been announced to change the hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chevroletâ&#x20AC;? anytime soon, but hey, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vegas. More outrageous things have happened. There is a spectacle that combines splitsecond timing, showmanship and the most difficult and delicate of balancing acts into a package sometimes referred to as the greatest show on earth.

High roller that I am, I am so ready for Las Vegas. My $25-a-day blackjack budget is all saved up and loaded for bear. You know that quote that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my money theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about ... except it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too terribly happening, if you know what I mean. So while I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to come back home much more financially solvent than when I leave, like everyone else fortunate enough to be involved in this sport, still I feel like a winner; or, in this case, a Wynn-er. Because I have a feeling that by moving the 2009 Championâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Week to Las Vegas, NASCAR has hit the jackpot.

York, New York,â&#x20AC;? but this apple will offer a taste of something its bigger, East Coast counterpart did not. A favorite event of Championâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Week, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Victory Lap was black-flagged by NYC officials last year due to various logistical issues. Las Vegasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; answer to scaling logistical obstacles, rather than canceling them, is to simply drive around them. The Victory Lap, including all 12 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers, will return this year. The stock cars will roar down Las Vegas Boulevard on December 3, complete with pit stops and a burnout by the champion. Start spreadinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the news ...

Sometimes, its headliners even resemble human cannonballs hurtling through space. What a great way to describe the hotel Circus Circus ... or a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Take your pick. Some of us may still believe we will miss Manhattan, but canny Las Vegas was several steps ahead of us. Architecture on the Strip includes familiar towers such as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. The Statue of Liberty is there, along with the Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island, Grand Central Terminal and, for the more culturally minded, the Whitney Museum of American Art. It is the hotel â&#x20AC;&#x153;New

Retired School Personnel contribute to Times Food Challenge TIMES STAFF REPORT

Members of the Thomasville Unit of Retired School Personnel (RSP) brought over 100 food items to their monthly meeting at Loflin’s Restaurant on Nov. 12. The food was delivered to the Thomasville Parks and Recreation Department to be used in the Times Food Challenge project during the Holiday Season. Ron Bratton, former Chief of Police, present-

ed a program on Youth Activities in Thomasville. Detective Steve Truell and Lt. Darren Smith of the Thomasville Police Department assisted with the presentation. They reported on gang activity in the City, and said that our small town status helps to prevent or curtail gang activity. In a small town “everybody tells on one another.” They warned members to use extra caution in parking lots during the

Holiday Season as thieves find this an ideal time to “work the parking lots”. The Thomasville RSP is open to retired teachers, administrators, support personnel, cafeteria workers, maintenance workers, etc. who wish to meet with co-workers after retirement. The local unit meets on the second Thursday in September, November, January, March, and May at Loflin’s Restaurant. Call Deanna Geter 475-5252 for

Overcoming holiday stress at work First Bank honors ASK THE COACH

TAMMY HOLYFIELD Business Columnist Dear Coach, Our organization is going through change which is causing unbearable stress. The holidays are approaching as well as year end inventories, planning and reviews. Everyone is uptight. I am concerned about the effects of stress on our team, individually and our future success. What do you suggest? – Not Coping with Stress Dear Not Coping with Stress, This can be a stressful time of year for many. In the midst of year end processes and planning for 2010, things can seem overwhelming. Even the news can bring on feelings of fear and uncertainty. With reports of the rise of unemployment and economical pressure on working families, topped with the holidays our stress levels can be compounded. Here are some practical solutions for coping with stress.

Know What Stress Is and Its Effects

In 1956, McGraw-Hill released Dr. Hans Selye’s book entitled The Stress of Life. It was based on his pioneering and revolutionary concepts of stress and its effects on us. Dr. Selye, often called, the father of the stress theory, defined stress as “the nonspecific response of the body to any demand made upon it.” The “demand” can be a threat, a challenge or any kind of change which requires us to adapt. This reaction results from an outpouring of adrenaline and other hormones that causes your blood pressure to increase, your heart to beat faster and your lungs to take in more air. Stress hormones actually give you extra strength and mental acuity for a few moments. These changes in the body are intended to be a natural defense called the “fightor-flight response”. Some stress is healthy and helps us perform at higher levels, but when the stress response occurs too frequently or goes on consistently over time, those hormones that were meant to save your life begin to destroy your health. They can lead to headaches, de-

pression, anxiety, obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and all kinds of illnesses. The causes of stress though many can be classified in two general groups: situations we can control and those that are uncontrollable or beyond our skill or knowledge. What we can control is our response to the circumstance. By practicing these stressreducing habits we can lower the adverse effects of stress on ourselves and our organizations.

Mindfulness Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to what is going on moment to moment. It is slowing down, focusing on one activity at a time and enjoying the present moment. The inverse would be attending a staff meeting and your thoughts are focused on the tasks that await you after. It is difficult to relax and listen when you are anxious or thinking about the future, by not practicing mindfulness you could miss critical information. Gratitude Practice an “attitude of gratitude.” There is a peacefulness that comes when we stop and give thanks. I suggest creating a list identifying at least twenty specific things, great and small for which you are grateful. Make your list a part of your mental dialogue everyday.

had a freedom that even the Nazi captors could not take from him. This freedom was his power to choose his response. Like Frankl, we have the power to reframe and to see on the other side of the circumstances and envision the positive.

Humor Create a habit of humor instead of worry. Worry is paying for something you may never get. Studies prove laughter boosts your immune system and lowers the levels of stress hormones. A merry heart is a great weapon against stress. Margin A wise way to de-stress is to build in margin. Margin is the buffer between panic and peace. When we fail to schedule adequate time between meetings, activities or events, we set ourselves up to experience stress. Building margin in your schedule, your finances, and other areas will prevent unnecessary stress.

Time-Outs No one would expect an athlete to play an entire game without taking a break, yet statistics show that the average

American is working an additional three hours per week compared with 20 years ago. That translates into an extra month per year. One of the first symptoms of distress is fatigue, which we tend to ignore. By taking quick time-outs during the day we can avoid exhaustion. There are many other ways to cope with the daily stresses of this world, like getting plenty of sleep, maintaining a healthy diet, drinking filtered water, reducing caffeine, regular exercise, meditation, music, breathing and taking a vacation. I consider one of the greatest ways to reduce your stress level is to take the focus off your own circumstances and go fulfill a need for someone else. It puts things into perspective.

Reframing Reframing is taking thoughts; past, present or future, challenging them and choosing to see them from a fresh perspective. A powerful example of reframing is the story of Viktor Frankl, a Jewish psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor. Dr. Frankl’s circumstances looked dismal but he knew the power within him.

Program seeks Santas for seniors TIMES STAFF REPORT

Home Instead Senior Care is again sponsoring the community program that last year delivered more than 230 gifts to local needy seniors in Davie and Davidson counties. Area retailers, along with agencies that serve older adults, have partnered with Home Instead to make sure that isolated seniors in Davie and Davidson counties receive gifts and companionship through the Be a Santa to a Senior program. The Lexington office of Home Instead Senior Care, the world’s largest provider of non-medical home care and companionship for older adults, has joined Chelsea’s Manor, Suntrust Bank, Newbridge Bank and other agencies to provide presents to seniors who otherwise might not receive a gift this holiday season. The Home Instead office in Lexington also has a tree with ornaments located at 206 East Center St. Lexington, NC. Throughout North America, this is the fifth year of the program where last year more than 35,0000 volunteers distributed gifts to deserving seniors. In the past five

years since introducing this Be a Santa to a Senior program, Home Instead Senior Care has helped provide more than 1,000,000 gifts to 568,055 seniors in North America. “Be a Santa to a Senior each year sets new records in contributions of gifts to a group that often is forgotten during the hectic holiday season,” said Sid Jay, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care. “While children are the beneficiaries of many holiday programs, people often don’t think about the isolated and lonely seniors who need to be remembered as well during this season. Be a Santa to a Senior also is designed to help stimulate human contact and social interaction for older adults who are unlikely to have guests during the holidays.” Here’s how the program, which runs from Nov. 1 through Dec. 11th, works: Prior to the holiday season, the participating local organizations will identify needy and isolated seniors in the community and provide those names to Home Instead Senior Care for this community service program. Christmas trees, which went up in all the store & banks in the community the first

week of November will feature ornaments with the first names only of the seniors and their respective gift requests. Holiday shoppers can pick up an ornament, buy items on the list and return them in a gift bag, along with the ornament attached. Home Instead Senior Care then enlists the volunteer help of its staff, senior-care business associates, non-profit workers and others to collect and distribute the gifts to these seniors the week of Christmas. “Be a Santa to a Senior is a fulfilling way to say thanks to those older adults who have helped build our community,” Sid Jay said. “Our hope is that many will be touched by this holiday gesture of goodwill.” If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering to help, contact Sarah Chambers at 336249-1011 in Lexington. You can also check out the Web site www.beasantatoasenior.com Businesses are encouraged to contact the Home Instead Senior Care offices at the above numbers, about adopting groups of seniors.

DCCC to offer new diploma programs TIMES STAFF REPORT

New diploma programs in Entrepreneurship and Heavy Equipment Transportation Technology will admit students for the first time in January at Davidson County Community College. The college will also add afternoon/evening certificate programs to the existing Networking and Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration programs. The yearlong Entrepreneurship curriculum is deisgned to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and growth as self-employed business owners. Five of the 13 courses required for the diploma will be offered in Spring 2010. Course work will include a survey of starting and operating an entrepreneurial venture, steps to research and define the target market for business startup or to expand an existing business, financial issues and needs confronting entrepreneurs and business accounting principles. Students will learn hands-on techniques and procedures for planning and operating a small business, including the personal qualities needed for entrepreneurship. “We want to encourage small buisiness growth through this diploma program and the Entrepreneurship Academy,” said Julie Kennedy, Dean, School of Business, Engineering and Technical Studies. She noted the academy, part of the workforce development offerings at the college, will work collaboratively with the Entrepreneurship program to meet the needs of new and expanding businesses through one-day workshops covering topics such as marketing, finance and sales. For more information, contact Randy Ledford at

249-8186, ext. 6357, or at rledford@davidsonccc. edu. Heavy Equipment and Transportation Technology, also a one-year curriculum program, is designed to prepare individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to service, troubleshoot and repair medium and heavy duty vehicles. The five courses offered during the 2010 spring semester will cover the areas of diesel electrical systems, mechanical transmissions, air brakes and steering and air conditioning/diesel equipment. Students must complete a course in the fundamental concepts of electricity and test equipment. Thirteen courses are required to achieve the diploma. The heavy equipment program will be housed in DCCC’s new Transportation Technology Building which opens in January. The facility provides space for program expansion, as well as the existing Automotive Technology program. The $1.8 million structure is the first college building funded totally by grants. “Heavy Equipment and Transportation Technology is a brand new program in this geographical area that will support the demand for diesel engine repair technicians,” Kennedy said. “Now students will have the opportunity to pursue careers in the automotive and diesel technologies fields in a modern training facility that features up-to-date equipment.” For more information, contact Jonathan Skeen at 336-249-8186, extension 6160, or at jdskeen@davidsonccc.edu. Also starting in January, DCCC will be offer certificates for students in Networking and Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration during the afternoon and eve-

ning hours. The Networking certificate, with an emphasis in CISCO Routing and Switching, is designed to prepare students to take the CISCO certification examination. Students must complete five courses to earn the certificate. Two will be offered during the spring semester. For more information, contact Ann Porter at 249-8186, ext. 6193, or at amporter@davidsonccc. edu. The HVAC certificate, with an emphasis in Air Conditioning and Heating, is designed to give students basic working knowledge on preventative maintenance and basic service skills on residential and light commercial systems. The students will prepare to take the NC Refrigerant Certification Exam. Completion of four courses is required to receive the certificate. In spring 2010, students will focus on the installation procedures, system operations and maintence of residential and light commercial comfort cooling systems. For more information, contact Bruce Bowman at 249-8186, ext. 6102, or at ebbowman@davidsonccc.edu. The certificate programs are being offered in direct response to requests from employers in and around Davidson and Davie counties. “More CISCO certified network administrators

Logistics management is a concentration under Business Administration and prepares students for careers in transportation and warehousing through the study of principles of organization and management in logistics. Graduates should qualify for employment in logistics related jobs such as material handling foreman, transportation supervisor, traffic manager, warehouse manager and inventory control manager.
