has received numerous reports of debit card fraud in the last few days. This has been traced to a “skimmer device” that was placed inside of a local gas pumps credit/debit card reader. The police department located the skimmer and removed it.  There was no external indication that the pumps credit card reader had been tampered with. When a person pays for gas at the pump using a debit card and a PIN number, the skimmer records this information and relays it to the criminal who then clones the debit card and can then use your account, with your PIN number, at AT M s , b u s i n e s s e s a n d o t h e r locations.    A tip to help prevent this activity is to use the debit card as a “credit card” at the pump and then enter the ZIP code of the billing address.  This will help limit your exposure to fraudulent activity.    You should monitor your debit card account for any unusual activity in the coming months and if you locate suspicious activity, contact your bank to verify it is fraudulent activity.  if the suspicious activity is definitely fraudulent, please file a report with the police department.  David Semrad Chief of Police Liberty Police Department

By Jennifer and Lindsay Hinshaw We are so excited to introduce Liberty’s very first Little Free Library! If reading is an important part of your life, you will love the Little Free Library. Sharing in the love of reading and literacy drove the development of Little Free Libraries all across America, and now Liberty has their very own. We started this project by finding and repurposing a metal newspaper box which serves as the “library.” A special thanks to the Burlington Times News for the newspaper box donation. With a little hard work and a lot of creativity, we transformed the newspaper box into the Little Free Library we are very proud to share with our community. We hope you will all take advantage of this free opportunity. After all, YOU are the ones who will make Liberty’s Little Free Library a success! Using the Little Free Library is simple. Community members will find the Little Free Library (the repurposed newspaper box) at the entrance of Freedom Park. Once there, we encourage you to do one of three things: 1-Place one of your used books in the box as a donation for someone else to enjoy. *Remember, this is a donation, so you will not get the book back. 2-Take one of the donated books from the box and enjoy. 3-Donate a book! Take a book! Place one of your own used books in the box as a donation and then take a previously donated book from the box to enjoy. Books you borrow from the Little Free Library are yours to keep forever, but you may also return them to the Little Free Library after you’ve finished reading. If you have great books at home collecting dust, donate them to the Little Free Library! Simply place them in the box for someone else to discover. You may introduce someone to their new favorite book! Quick facts about Liberty’s Little Free Library: °Liberty’s Little Free Library box is located at the main entrance to Freedom Park, on Butler Avenue. °Little Free Library is NOT associated with the Liberty Public Library. Please do not return your public library books at the Little Free Library box. Please do not return books from the Little Free Library box to the Liberty Public Library. °Little Free Library operates on the honor system and will be accessible 24hours a day. °Books for all age ranges are welcome, from children’s picture books to adult chapter books. °Take a book from the Little Free Library, and leave behind a book whenever you get a chance. We are currently seeking volunteers to help participate in monitoring the Little Free Library, to help keep it safe and stocked. For questions, comments, concerns, or to volunteer your time, please send an email to: library4605@gmail.com. Find out more information about the many Little Free Libraries located throughout our state and the nation at LittleFreeLibrary.org

Jamestown Rifle Donated; LHS Class of ‘52 Visits Patterson Cottage The Patterson Cottage Museum has received a major gift of a rare 1850 era Jamestown long rifle made by gunsmith Henry Wright. The rifle was donated by a member of the Garner family in memory of Robert M. Garner, Sr. and his wife Maize Kimrey Garner, both of Liberty. From the 1840’s to the late 1870’s there were at least forty gunsmiths in a three-mile area in and around the small village of Jamestown, N.C. Henry Wright was, according to Bill Ivey’s “N.C. Schools of Long Rifles, 1765-1865”, “an excellent gunsmith and very prolific.” Until 1857, Henry Wright was in partnership with William Lamb, said by Ivey to be “the best known and probably the most respected of all the Jamestown gunsmiths.” In 1850, Wright and Lamb were listed as employing four men with monthly wages of $60, using 4,000 pounds of iron and 1600 bushels of coal to make 400 rifles annually. After dissolving his partnership, Wright’s shop was located on the west side of Guilford College Rd. in Jamestown. The rifle is signed in block letters “H. Wright” on the barrel. It has the Roman numeral “VI” near the rear sight. Each of these rifles came with its own bullet mold and the mold would have had a corresponding “VI” engraved on it. It is around .38 caliber, seems to have its original ramrod and is made of curly maple much of which has turned dark due to its shellac. The rifle has an interesting history. It was originally owned by Augustus Eugene Staley, an industrialist who made a fortune in starch, corn and soybeans in his plant in Decatur, IL. Staley, born on what is now Red Cross Road northwest of Liberty, was also partially responsible for founding the Chicago Bears. The Bears’ mascot is named “Staley da Bear” in honor of Staley. Staley’s mother was a Ledbetter from a family of Jamestown gunsmiths. Henry Wright’s first wife, who died young, was also a Ledbetter. This may be the connection for the rifle in the family. Or the Staley’s may have just wanted a dependable rifle. The rifle eventually was passed to Augustus Staley’s sister Willa and her husband Melville Cecil Garner. Upon Melville’s death, Willa sold the rifle to his brother Robert M. Garner, Sr. Henry Wright made extremely ornate rifles (Bill Ivey shows three of them in his book) but also everyday, working man rifles. This rifle has a simple but elegant style, made for someone who may not have had a lot of money but needed to put meat on the table. It’s a working man’s rifle, indicating that it may have been purchased for William Staley, born 1840, the father of Augustus Staley. Whatever the case, the Patterson Cottage Museum is extremely grateful for the gift from the Garner family in memory of Robert M. Garner, Sr. and wife Maize, long time residents of Liberty and father of Maxine, Jack and Bob Garner and will place it on display where generations can enjoy it. Other recent donations include a coffee grinder donated by Bill Thomas in memory of his mother Ada Louise Hicks Thomas (1909-1985); a Zippo lighter and Zippo tape measure embossed with Gregson Mfg. Company donated by Peggy Gregson Davis; a rare wooden colonial mold for a clay pipe, miniature tobacco barn handmade in Randolph County, Volume 1 of “The Revised Statues of the State of N.C.”, 1837, a framed handwritten formula for Foster’s Liver Kick, a huge 1928 map of Alamance County with resident’s names and locations noted on the map and several other items, all donated by Jack Garner. ****    ****          ****   ****        ****  ****        **** ****    **** **** Several members, spouses and friends of the Liberty High School Class of 1952 visited the cottage after meeting at Y’all Come Back for lunch recently. They were Ken Fogleman, Jack Garner, Bill Thomas, George Staley and wife Pattie Ellis Staley, Ronald Lee Kime and wife Frances, Ann Cheek Baldwin, Juanita Fogleman Parks and Reid Phillips.  Don Herndon and Warren Dixon were tour guides. The class members were particularly interested in seeing their 1952 yearbook and class photo of their senior trip to Washington, DC. The cottage will be open the third Saturday of each month from 11-2 or you may call Warren Dixon at 622-2731 for a free tour.

Patterson Cottage Wants World War I Items

This is interesting . .. . Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back. It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavorings.... DO YOU KNOW.. The difference between margarine and butter? Read on to the end...gets very interesting! Both have the same amount of calories. Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine. Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study. Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods. Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and only because they are added! Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods. Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years . And now, for Margarine.. Very High in Trans fatty acids. Triples risk of coronary heart disease ... Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol) Increases the risk of cancers up to five times.. Lowers quality of breast milk Decreases immune response. Decreases insulin response. And here's the most disturbing fact... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING! Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT. These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance). Open a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things: * no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something) * it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast? Share This With Your Friends.....(If you want to butter them up')! Chinese Proverb: When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.

Are You a Thermometer or a Thermostat? Jason W. Keller Both a thermometer and a thermostat deal with temperature, but that is where the similarity ends. Thermometers are simply instruments that measure the temperature around them. They reflect their surroundings, but thermostats are instruments of change and stability. They regulate and impact the temperature. When things get too hot, they go to work to cool down the situation, and when necessary, they turn up the heat to keep things from getting too cold. As leaders, citizens, and followers of Christ, we have a responsibility to be thermostats, not thermometers. However, many people today simply reflect their surroundings. They have no impact on their homes, workplaces, communities or churches. Who will decide to make a difference rather than just reflect the attitudes, ideas and wickedness of the world around them? Remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:14: “You are the light of the worldlike a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.” Go make a difference today! Jason Keller is a community leader, leadership mentor, and financial advisor. He serves as the Executive Pastor of Freedom Family Church in Liberty. He can be reached at jasonwkeller@gmail.com.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? (1) You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. – Alan, age 10 (2) No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with. – Kristen, age 10 WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED? (1) Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then. – Camille, age 10 (2) No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married. – Freddie, age 6 (very wise for his age) HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED? (1) You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids. – Derrick, age 8 WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON? (1) Both don’t want any more kids. – Lori, age 8 WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE? (1) Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. – Lynnette, age 8 (isn’t she a treasure) (2) On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that Usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. – Martin, age 10 WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR? (1) I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns. -Craig, age 9 WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE? (1) When they’re rich. – Pam, age 7 (2) The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that. – Curt, age 7 (3) The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do. – Howard, age 8 IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? (1) I don’t know which is better, but I’ll tell you one thing. I’m never going to have sex with my wife. I don’t want to be all grossed out. – Theodore, age 8 (2) It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. – Anita, age 9 (bless you child) HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN’T GET MARRIED? (1) There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn’t there? – Kelvin, age 8 And the #1 Favorite is…….. HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK? (1) Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck.

We Grieve in the South, But We Don’t Go Hungry By Warren Dixon One night after we had been married only a few months, Sandra and I got our wires crossed. Okay, maybe I was the one with the crossed wires. After all, there are some that never were attached to begin with. Anyway, through a simple misunderstanding, Sandra missed the fact that I was going to work late. She called the post office when I didn’t arrive home at the normal time but we had a rule that you never answered the phone after closing hours. And, of course, there were no cell phones around back then. All sorts of scenarios ran through her head and after about an hour she became desperate. Thinking that if something terrible had happened to me, she knew she had to take action. She knew that if I had passed away she would need strength to continue on in the days that followed. And she reasoned that she would be grieving so that she would not have an appetite once the police came with the bad news. So there was nothing left for her to do but to sit down and eat dinner. You have to admire a woman who can think clearly in the time of adversity. Here in the South, food is the tie that binds us all. I remember reading once that a funeral home in California was delivering cooked turkeys to bereaved families. There was a pretty big deal made of this, as I remember, like maybe the grieving families might have starved if not for the mortuary meal. We are different in the South. Here we depend on our funeral homes to prepare the deceased for burial and to provide us a place to socialize. We can feed the family ourselves. One California family was quoted as saying, “We were just totally in awe of the funeral home doing something like that. That’s the last thing you would think of, something to eat.” Well, it might be the last thing a grieving family thinks of, but here in the South, it’s the first thing that crosses everyone else’s minds. If the funeral home brought a turkey here, there’d be no room for it with all the casseroles, pies, vegetables, meats and drinks. We have a long history in the South of feeding the family, friends and even slight acquaintances of the deceased. If you visit a grieving family here, the first thing you’re asked is, do you want to eat. And now the funeral homes in the South are even taking advantage of this hunger, feeding friends and family at the visitation. To this date, however, I haven’t heard of any of them delivering turkeys to the family. The custom of eating ourselves into oblivion at the death of a loved one began early. Sir Walter Raleigh, for instance, reported in his travels in North Carolina in 1584 of visiting homes of deceased inhabitants to pay his respects and finding “Large Amountes of KFC, Some of it Extra Crispe, Which the Visitors Had Placed in Their Own Dishes in an Attempt to Make One Thinke They Had Cooked it Themselves.”] The Pilgrims found the same hospitality in Massachusetts in 1620. Indians, probably a Southern tribe, realizing that several of the Pilgrims had passed away, responded with food of all kinds. “The Indians,” one Pilgrim noted in his journal, “Appeared in our Driveway Withe Copious Amountes of Foode, Cranberry Sauce, Turkeys, Pumpkin Pies and a Pickup Trucke Load of Venison, Withe Which We Made Deer Burgers.” The venison, he noted, “Was Goode if Fixed Rite.” Another Pilgrim reported that “Our Fridges Were Filled With Foode For Weekes to Come.” There was so much food, the Pilgrims said, that they almost forgot to bury the deceased. “And There Was Much Belching At the Funeral.” Sometime later in history churches got into the act of feeding grieving families. This resulted in the 11:00 funeral service being invented so that family and friends could return to the church and, of course, eat. In the South, a funeral becomes a grand social occasion and with so many friends and acquaintances and long lost family members coming out that it is a shame the deceased can’t be there to see them. People who were never sent a single flower in their lives will get more than enough to make up for this in death. And many folks who wouldn’t have visited before will feel obligated to come by with some Bojangles and a cold drink, just to say how wonderful the deceased was. And to eat a chicken leg. As a matter of fact, no one has ever been known to die in the South who wasn’t a grand and wonderful person after they died. And it is the food that binds us together, allows us to sit without talking much because, after all, we don’t know what to say to the family anyway.

Isn’t that crazy? By: Andy Clapp Forgiving, even when it hurts to forgive. Turning the other cheek when someone wrongs you. Going the second mile when you don’t have to go. Praying for those who hurt us rather than retaliating. Loving our enemies, the very ones who find their pleasure in causing us angst and attempt to destroy us around every turn. Giving all we have and remaining content in that which we already have. Laying down our lives for the sake of someone else, even when we know they would not do the same for us. To hear of such a lifestyle seems a little crazy, especially in a world that seeks its own glory and its own gain with each passing day. However, when we have taken up our cross to follow Jesus Christ, this is the life we have been called to live. The perfect

Lamb of God was arrested, mocked, beaten, put on trial, and executed for the sins of the world, the very sins He had not committed. He could have stopped the scene that was playing out with just a word, but didn’t. Was He crazy? Was He a radical who had taken His message too far? To some, that was how it appeared. For those who have been saved by the work of Christ on the cross, we see that it was anything but crazy. The sacrifice of Christ on the cross was an act of crazy love, unwavering obedience, and a place where death would lead to life. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but it God’s power to us who are being saved.” (1 Corinthians 1:18 HCSB) A righteous Man dying for the unrighteous, executed upon a cross, pierced to ensure He was dead, but on the third day, He was alive and is forevermore. The story itself seems inconceivable but knowing the truth of the story brings us to a greater understanding of God’s power and a more-focused vision on what really matters. What the world offers is temporary. What God gives us is eternal. The life of a Christian may seem crazy but it makes sense to us because we know that there is more to life than this physical existence. Knowing that, we live for more and give of ourselves as Christ gave of Himself for us on the cross. The world may think we are crazy by the way we live (giving, forgiving, resisting, and sacrificing) but such a distinction made by the world holds no eternal weight. We are the children of God and our future is far greater than our present. We leave an impact on the world for the cause of Christ, through the message of the cross and the work of the cross in our lives, for the glory of God. As MercyMe once sang, “It would be crazy to choose this world over eternity.” Now that would indeed be crazy!

RCC Welding Students Fulfill Tall Order for North Carolina Zoo – Designing and building a giraffe enrichment device could be a tall order for some, but not for Randolph Community College’s Welding Technology students. They recently worked with zookeepers from the North Carolina Zoo to improve an existing enrichment item and add a new one to the giraffe enclosure behind the scenes at the zoo in Asheboro. The students and their instructors formed a caravan of vehicles and 4x4 trucks outside the N.C. Z o o Education Building on July 12 to follow Animal Management Supervisor Jodi Wiley through the back gate and along the tram paths to the rear of the giraffe barn to install the new equipment. The students worked for several hours in the hot, humid July heat to remove an old wire basket from an existing pole and install the new hardware they had fabricated with design help from the zookeepers. While the old basket, originally designed as a hay feeder according to Wiley, could hold a few tree boughs (from which the resident giraffes love to munch on the leaves), the new hardware has a horizontal bar with eight loops across the top to which various enrichment items can be attached. It is also angled to boost the height of the 16foot pole to a total of 18 feet to place it at “giraffe height.” The hardware was mounted to a hand-cranked hoist that can be moved to the bottom of the pole for access by the zookeepers. Although the giraffes were safely tucked away in the barn during the “construction,” the RCC students did attract some attention from other animals nearby in the habitat. Suddenly appearing at the habitat gate were an ostrich and three zebra, curious as to what was going on. Although the zebra didn’t stick around, the ostrich supervised the work for quite some time. After completing the improvement to the first armature, the students enlisted the help of a couple of zoo workers and a forklift. Together, they successfully installed the second fabricated pole at another corner of the giraffe’s behind-the-scenes quarters, then attached the second enrichment armature. Wiley, who has been with the N.C. Zoo for 15 years, said the enhanced armature would give the zookeepers more options to provide the giraffes “enrichment” with feeding puzzles, toys, and other objects to stimulate their curiosity and engagement. Wiley, who said the giraffes usually take some time to adjust to new items, reported the Zoo’s big male giraffe went right for the new enrichment when he was let out of the barn. RCC Welding Department Head Michael S. Ford, said real-world projects such as this help the students prepare for the work force, where skilled welders are in demand. The RCC Welding department previously worked with the N.C. Zoo to build several elephant feeders in 2013 and 2016, which solved a problem of the elephants ingesting sand while feeding off the ground. The RCC Welding students who worked on the giraffe project include Bailey Black and Cole Jacobs, both of Asheboro; Neil Jones of Coleridge; Spencer Craven and Coy Wolfe, both of Franklinville; Benjamin Salmons of Denton; Laura Thompson of Staley; Alan Mozingo of Trinity; and Seth Williams of Troy. Welding instructor Allan Bechel also assisted. Randolph Community College’s Welding Technology curriculum, which is housed at the Archdale Center and offers diploma and certificate options, provides students with a sound understanding of the science, technology, and applications essential for successful employment in the welding and metalworking industry. Instruction includes consumable and nonconsumable electrode welding and cutting processes. Courses may include math, print reading, metallurgy, welding inspection, and destructive and nondestructive testing providing the student with industry-standard skills developed through classroom training and practical application. Graduates of the Welding Technology curriculum may be employed as entry-level technicians in welding and metalworking industries. Career opportunities also exist in construction, manufacturing, fabrication, sales, quality control, supervision, and welding-related self-employment. For more information about the program or RCC, visit www.randolph.edu or call the college at 336-633-0200 or 336-862-7980.

Republican Candidate Sheriff Robert A. Graves announced today that he will be a candidate for the Republican nomination for Sheriff of Randolph County in the 2018 Primary Election. “Over the past few months, I have been focused on building the necessary resources needed to wage a successful campaign for election. I am humbled by the outpouring of support I have received from my family and friends and I pledge to the good citizens of our county that I will continue to work tirelessly to ensure their safety,” stated Graves. “We have made good progress over the past year, but there is still much work to be done. Sadly, there are those who choose to live their lives outside of the law and my administration will be tough and unbending in pursuit of justice for our citizens as we work to keep our county safe and a great place to live and raise a family.” Graves added in making his announcement. “I’ve made and will continue to make it a priority to remove illegal drugs from our streets through enforcement of our existing laws and education prevention in our public schools. We will continue our efforts to maintain an increase presence in all our communities as we work to strengthen our property crime prevention programs while focusing on the safety of our seniors and those citizens most at risk.” Sheriff Graves is a retired member of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, serving at the rank of Lieutenant. He has a distinguished career in North Carolina law enforcement and has been recognized for this leadership by numerous agencies. He was awarded the Order of the Long Leaf Pine in 2009, the highest honor bestowed to a citizen by the Office of the Governor. He is the past chairman of the Randolph County Republican Party as well as holding several other Party positions throughout the years. He and his family are members of the First Baptist Church in Asheboro where he is a deacon and past chairman of the Executive Council. He and Donna, his wife of 36 years, are the proud parents of two adult children Jennifer Graves Walker – husband NCSHP Trooper Bradley Walker and NCSHP Trooper Robert B. Graves and wife Erin. They are also the proud grandparents of Braelyn and Jaxson Walker. For additional information, contact Sheriff Graves at 336-302-1920.

Ph/Fx 336-622-2366 100-Man Project Joins Forces With Liberty Elementary Service Club A Liberty Elementary School Service Club has impressed the members of the 100-Man Project that the two community service organizations have decided to join forces to help improve their community. A recent article in Asheboro’s Courier-Tribune caught the attention of several members of the 100-Man Project. The article told how Liberty Elementary had launched a “Service Learning Club” last year and detailed the projects they had taken on including food and clothing drives and a community garden. The idea for the club was born when six rising fifth graders were selected from the school last year to attend the Student Leadership Institute, a four day session at Pfeiffer University. The institute at Pfeiffer focused on leadership through community service. Fourth grade teacher Shannon Staley accompanied the group. When the students returned, they had several ideas on how to help the needy in the Liberty community. Shannon Staley suggested they start a service club and with Principal Kelli Harrell’s support, the club was established. The students held clothing and food drives at school, challenging each class to collect specific items and offering a party to the class collecting the most. They then distributed the food and clothing they had accumulated to the needy. Next they decided to start another large project, a community garden for the Liberty Association of Churches. Knowing that school would be out before all the veggies were ripe, they even contacted adult members of the community to care for the garden during the summer.  This summer a new batch of rising fifth graders have already attended the leadership institute at Pfeiffer. They are Amelia Lackey, Madison Hicks, Zoey Pugh, Kaylan Currin and Kaylee Shephard. They will form the nucleus of the club along with other students who will join when school starts again this fall. 100-Man Project president Tommy Meacham and treasurer Warren Dixon were so impressed with the students that they recently invited them and their parents to attend a meeting of the 100-Man group. “We wanted them to see that community service continues all your life,” Meacham said, “and we wanted to show them our support for their projects. It’s not everyday that you see ten-year-olds who are interested in serving their community.” The 100-Man Project voted to support the school’s service club monetarily and to aid in their projects by any other means necessary. “These students are our future,” Meacham continued, “and we want them to know they’re appreciated by their community.”

With summer officially here, more and more drone operators are heading outdoors to enjoy the new technology. An estimated 19,000 North Carolinians own and operate drones.  The North Carolina Department of Transportation, along with the Federal Aviation Administration, have established several safety guidelines that will ensure a fun and safe experience: • Always fly below an altitude of 400 feet and fly within your direct line of sight; • Do not fly within five miles of an airport; • Never fly near emergency response efforts, stadiums, public events or other aircraft; • Do not fly drones that weigh more than 55 pounds; and • Flying drones at night is not recommended, even if it is equipped with lights.  “We want to remember to operate our drones in a safe manner,” said Basil Yap, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Program Manager.  “We want to think about protecting people’s safety as well as their privacy.”  More information about drone operation and safety is on the NCDOT website.
