The Liberty Leader Free Community Paper By The Community And For The Community

Free Monthly Newspaper Great Community Event Planned

If you’re riding around Liberty no doubt you’re going to see Lady Liberty’s dancing and holding signs pointing the way to Liberty Tax Service. Last year we wrote an article on the Marketing Manager Vicki Lemmon, who is now happily married and now goes by Vicki Humble. Vicki moved to North Carolina October of 2008 after being in Hurricane Ike outside of Galveston Texas. We here at Liberty Leader have been inspired by Vicki’s outgoing personality and how she has embraced our wonderful town. If you don’t know, Vicki is putting together a community party to help promote area businesses. In this article we will interview Vicki and ask her a few questions; So what has inspired you to put together this community event?“As I am going business to business marketing for Liberty Tax Service I see some businesses that have closed down and it breaks my heart. Liberty is the town I chose to make my home for the rest of my life and I want to see her grow and prosper.”How do you think this community event will help the area businesses?“Each business will come and set up a booth to show what they have to offer, some are giving away food, while others will be showing off their wonderful wares. We are advertising about the event through radio and newspapers and are expecting to have a wonderful turnout”What businesses are coming to this community event?“At this time we have 26 area businesses so of course I can’t name them all, you will have to come and see for yourself.”Are you planning this event alone or do you have others helping you?“We have partnered with 421 Havana; Nilda Sebastian has been a great inspiration to our town by bringing in many community events since they opened their doors. We are honored to have this event at such a wonderful facility.”I heard you were having more than just area businesses involved, what else is going to be going on at this event?“This event will also benefit Locks of Love; one of our wonderful salons here in Liberty will be helping us with this portion of the event. Randolph health department is coming to help educate us on health issues, and there will be other wonderful things going on, you just have to be sure to come out to the event to see for yourself.”If you wish to find out more about this event see “Family Fun Community Party” on page two.

February 2011 Earth Visions Boot Camp

January 2011

There comes a time in every life when a need just arises to go up against IT. You gather determination; you are anxious, edgy, and awake before dawn, working with IT already in mind. The Boot Camp Recruits of Earth Visions did just this. They looked IT in the face and they won. They sought IT and fought IT- and learned that IT was themselves all along. They accepted the mission of this one month adventure.In November of 2010, Earth Visions prepared the Boot Camp Protocol and began to offer the program to recruits. Every time there came the same response, “What will we do?” The fear of the physical work of it shone through. And there came the same answer, “We have much to do and have only a scant 20 hours, one hour each weekday, to do it.” The answer, perceived to be vague, got many responses. Mostly, the mystery of it captured the curiosity and will of many recruits. Let it be known that Sam and Novella Kennedy of Earth Visions did not really know all of the intricate details, as such a course as this completely depends on the participants. Sam and Novella both knew that it truly was not focused only on the physical fitness of the Boot Camp Recruit. It was SO much more than that.Finally the day came with the bleary-eyed and jittery recruits arriving at 5:45 am, not daring to be late. With only 20 hours at their disposal, Earth Visions created a tight program. A plan designed to guide, challenge and prod that Boot Camp Team in every way imaginable; with discipline, focus, awareness and technique. The first two hours were used to put the Team through grueling tests to check out their physical statistics and fitness level. This would be the base line and would tell the tale in the last two hours, if that recruit had improved and in what percentage. It would test the Boot Camp program. Could we in only 20 hours really make a difference in strength, endurance, balance, running times and everything else?Hour followed hour, week followed week and the bleary-eyed, sore and tiring Team continued to dig in. Every infraction, which included being late or absent or just plain not pay-

Volume 7 * Issue 2

ing attention would result in pushups for their Team, sometimes over a hundred pushups in the hour. Without enough hours in the Camp, the Boot Camp Team worked overtime into their lives. They worked out at home, took notes in journals, learned much about themselves in the bargain. In the end, it would be difficult to choose which part of their work produced such phenomenal results.EVERY hard-working, unrelenting, determined, blood-sweat & tear stained, recruit improved in every test and body statistic that was taken. Many inches were lost from their body measurements, many pounds disappeared from the scale, and in some cases repetitions of sets of the tests DOUBLED . They were stronger, much stronger and quite satisfied with the results of their labors. So were Sam and Novella. Yes, the Program proved to all that it could produce the improvements sought after. The experience has welded this Boot Camp Team together such as a war-time assignment may have done. They sweated, worked, cried and shared the common goal of finding what IT consists of in each of their lives. Just to put it in perspective, the Recruits varied in age from 21 to 68, most being closer to 68 than 21. Congratulations to you all, welcome to being in possibly the best shape of your life. You earned it!

Randolph Co Health Dept Rabid Kitten Found Randolph County Health Officials were notified by the State Laboratory of Public Health that a kitten sent for testing was positive for rabies. The kitten was found on Wednesday February 2, 2011 in the Uwharrie Street area of Asheboro, near the intersection with Albemarle Road. The kitten, a gray tabby approximately six months old was unable to walk when it was discovered. A Good Samaritan took the kitten to a local veterinary hospital for examination. After ruling out other causes of injury the veterinarian began to suspect rabies. Laboratory testing confirmed that the kitten was indeed rabid. Animal control officers are spreading the word in the area where the kitten was found by distributing flyers to surrounding homes. Rabies is a very dangerous disease that if not prevented causes death in animals and people. Signs of rabies in animals include: difficulty walking, slobbering, unusually friendly behavior in wild animals, unusually timid behavior in normally friendly animals and vicious behavior.

Combatting Poverty Call The Community Thursday, March 10 At 7 p.m. (All Invited) Over the years, combatting poverty has been a passion of mine. I believe it is one of the calls Jesus gave to me even before my call into the ministry. Before entering the ministry, I was a teacher for 10 years. In those 10 years, 1 year was in Arizona on the Mexican Border in a very poverty stricken area. After that, my wife and I both taught in Dayton, Ohio, and each of us had 2 of the poorest schools. It was there that my attitude and response to those in poverty were shaped and changed. After 6 years, due to budget cuts, we both lost our jobs and came to NC. We taught here for 3 years (in neighboring counties). Both of us had schools that were considered Low Income schools. Over the years, I've studied causes of poverty, effects of poverty, and ways of bringing people out of poverty. No single way will eliminate poverty, but if we sit back and do nothing, we're not fulfilling Jesus' call to minister to "the least of these." Charity through donations is only 1 way to help, but it's not the only way. What we need is a radical change in our own thought patterns and a call to action. I'd like to invite churches, community leaders, community members, and anyone else who is interested to a presentation called "Poverty and a Christian Respone" at Hickory Grove (10068 Silk Hope Liberty Rd.Take E. Dameron St. out of Liberty, and in about 3 miles, Hickory Grove will be on your left). The presentation will be Thursday, March 10 at 7 PM. While this one presentation won't stop poverty, I hope it can "get the ball rolling" in dealing with this important issue. I hope this is just the beginning of an important discussion of a problem that is affecting our area and almost every area in our country. So, Please Leave MARCH 10 at 7PM open and plan to attend if you can! Many Blessings,Tom Hallberg Pastor, Hickory Grove UMC

Message From The Editor Christian Brothers......

Words of encouragement that I have received from my Christian Brothers . Just passing them on. Be the kind of man that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says "Oh Crap, He's up!"  Brother, life is too short to wake up with regrets.  So love the people who treat you right.  Forgive the ones who don't just because you can.  Believe everything happens for a reason.  If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.  If it changes your life, let it.  Take a few minutes to think before you act when you're mad.  Forgive quickly.  God never said life would be easy, He just promised it would be worth it.  I LOVE You Christian brothers....  To the cool men that have touched my life , thank you for your truth, encouragement , guidance, prayers and most of all your Godly love.

Town Of Liberty Has New Public Work Director

So who is this new person? That would be none other than Chris Taylor. He is the new public works director for the town of Liberty. Lets get to know this great young man a little more. Chris was born in Chapel Hill on December 27. Chris attended High School just down the road at Jordan Matthews High Schools and graduated in 2000. He previously worked from 2002 to 2010. So does this young man have any great hobbies? Chris said, “I love visiting my father and family in Waynesville, NC and watching my race and work on his cars.” Speaking of brothers, Chris has 3 half brothers and 4 half sisters. I asked him what lead him to desire this position. “Well, I have this mechanical ability and just have always wanted to work for a municipality, “ Chris replied. As with most of my interviews, I have all these questions I love to ask. Well here they go. Who was your favorite role model. Chris thought and said, “It would have to be my mother Addie Taylor. Her Strength and work ethic. She was a single mother that always found a way to provide for us growing up.Working to jobs a lot of the times. She is my hero.” So what makes his day? Chris said with a smile, “ Just being here. SO much is taken for granted every day. I have learned to stop and enjoy the smallest things in life.” Do you have a great piece of advice to give to other I asked. “Always be kind and courteous to everyone, you never know what they may be going through, “ he told with a confidence. That is some great advice. In conclusion, I asked him if he had a favorite memory. Chris said, “There is not just one, helping all the people that I was lucky enough to help, that would be my reply.”

"Know that My Hand is always here waiting patiently for you to embrace It."

Dear neighbors, on behalf of the Liberty Town Council, I would like to let you know about a few good things in our town. Three new stores have opened.

I hope things keep improving for our community. If there are any ideas or suggestions that anyone has, please contact me at 622-4276 or 622-4393. Welcome to Liberty, where progress is unlimited.

HABITAT UPDATE

The “Wednesday Work Crew” was given a day of “work release” by our Lord on the second Wednesday (Jan. 12) when snow and ice blanketed the area, making work too cold and dangerous. The next scheduled workday of Wednesday, January 26, was more temperate, even if raining. Two workers from Liberty, one from Seagrove, and two Habitat supervisors worked inside sheetrocking window jambs and reworking a small defect in the front covered deck area. Lunch was provided by an anonymous couple at Hurricane Jane’s in Liberty. Habitat needs individuals and groups to provide any type lunch you can offer on the 2nd or 4th Wednesday of any month. Unfortunately, only enough food for around eight persons is necessary, so the e h cost to provide a meal should be nominal and can consist of eT Giv hat T whatever you care to prepare…. .Call Executive Director t f Gi ant yW Wanda Pegg at 625-1429 or Rodney Overcash (Construction e h T Coordinator) at 336-953-2929.

Letter To The Editor Hi,  I was hoping your paper could run something (even a little blurb would be great) this coming week inviting potential Relay For Life teams to attend our Team Captain's Meeting on February 8th at 6pm at First Presbyterian Church, Asheboro.  Our Team Captains meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6pm at First Presbyterian.  The meeting is open to current Team Captains or anyone potentially interested in forming a team.  Interested parties can also contact me directly if they are interested in helping in the fight to eradicate cancer by forming a team, joining a team, volunteering at the event or donating to our cause.  Relay For Life of Randolph County is only 103 days away and we need teams and volunteers, and supporters.  Anyone interested (or even potentially interested) in being a part of our life changing celebration can contact me via email at gerilwb@aol.com or by cell phone at 336-653-6302.   If you could do a similar shout out in your paper maybe the following week to invite ALL Survivors to contact me via the same contact info above or our Survivor Chair, Robin Whatley at rbwhatley@embarqmail.com or 336-953-4458.  We would love to see several hundred Survivors on the track for our opening lap in May and need to extend an invitation to to general community in order to recruit them.  They do not have to reside in Randolph County to participate, so anyone with Survivors in their family or friend circle should feel free to invite them to join us as we celebrate their triumph over cancer.Please feel free to be in touch if you have questions.  Thanks for the service that The Liberty News provides to Liberty and the surrounding communities.  Have a blessed day!

Hospice Offering l Program for Grieving Spouses Hospice of Randolph County is glad to announce its 5th annual offering of the bereavement event entitled “Surviving Hearts”. This special program is designed for those who are grieving the loss of a spouse and correlates with the Valentine’s Day season. Dr. Rodney Otwell, Hospice Chaplain, commented on the program: “The loss of a life’s partner is unlike any other loss we will face in life.  So much of our identity and personal history is wrapped up in the person to whom we commit to share our lives.  When that person dies, we not only lose them, we lose a part of ourselves.  The task of mourning well is doing the work necessary to rediscover who we are in light of such a significant loss.”The evening will consist of an educational component as well as time for personal reflection and feedback from the group and facilitator. This special program will be held on Tuesday, February 15 from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. For more information or to RSVP, contact Dr. Otwell at (336) 672-9300. For more information on Hospice of Randolph County, visit www.hospiceofrandolph.org.

At The Well At the center of the Village is a deep well of life-giving water where the townspeople meet. As they draw water their voices blend in the culture, society and wisdom that they share. Each month meet here at the well to hear those voices. There is always something going on in our neighborhood. At noon we meet at a home, since spring is a few weeks out and the wind is blowing around the well. We are here to listen to a 22 year-old woman, Nina, who lives here. She is studying to be a Nurse Practitioner and is working on delivery of her presentation. This presentation will be presented to her faculty next week. Some mothers have brought along their 3 and 5 year olds. They have crayons and paper, but I am wondering if even that will keep them quiet for this ‘grown up’ event. And now she begins. “More than 70 years ago there was a doctor who was doing research using mice. They lived in cages in the lab. His work with each group never showed the expected different results. Dr. Selye was clumsy and always dropped the mice when he took them from the cages.” One of the children began to fidget. “ Like this”, Nina squealed as she dropped onto all fours chasing the imaginary mice. She exchanged the mice by opening the imaginary cage door and more mice escaped. She chased for a moment, with the help of nowinterested children. When the chase was done, it was learned that Dr. Selye’s discovered that his results were always ruined by the fact that the mice were “stressed”. It affected the mice with all sorts of disease and shorter life spans. That is when stress became a household word and we began to look at the effects of stress within our own lives and bodies. Nina continued, while the children watched, just in case more imaginary mice escaped. “Dr. Selye found that there were three stages to the body’s reaction to stress. Fight or flight (stress), adaptation (stress managed), and exhaustion (worn out). Nina leans down and takes the hand of the 3-year-old with his crayon and draws with the child’s hand while she talks, “The adrenal glands perch right on top of the two kidneys and they affect our bodies because our non-stop stress affects their function”, she finishes with a smiley face on one adrenal gland drawing. Standing again she makes another point, “The ‘mice’ doctor found that the first thing that happens during stress is that the adrenal

gland gets bigger…why? So that it can make more adrenaline hormone to help with stress (fight or flight).” Then she chases those mice again catching the kids off-guard, “With the pressure and unrelenting stress on the glands, they shrink and produce much less adrenaline. The doctor found that when the mice stayed in the cages, the slight stress of a human hand that fed them just kept them alert, not stressed. So the mice ‘adapted’ which then managed the slight stresses, which was actually good for their bodies. Hans Selye said, ‘It is not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.” So healthy ways to laugh at our problems or to have friends or therapists to talk with will preserve our peace of mind (and keep us in our cages, I thought to myself with a giggle in my head). “The adrenal glands send out messages to cells by producing several hormones. Some of these are glucocorticoids and their first job is to release sugar for energy. Guess what is happening when too much sugar is released for energy?” Nina continues nodding toward the now-sleeping children, “Yes, it is supposed to be used as fuel to burn if running from a bear, but if our bears are all in our heads we just burn up our systems”. “What about when I exercise?” one of the moms asked. Nina answered, “Physical stress of exercise is the healthy body, building and nourishing itself with adaptive stress. This puts the body into the proper mode, so the body builds up rather than being torn down. You know how you chase your child all day and feel so tired, feeling as if it is enough exercise for you?… Wrong. It is the mindset that influences so much in our bodies. Exercise, done right, is stress RELIEF. It CREATES energy, rather than taking it away. The body feels energized, rather than tired. The adrenal glands are balanced and happy, not enlarged in one instance and not shrunk away in another. “The second job of the glucocorticoids is to reduce inflammation. A body in stress mode depresses the immune system to prepare for a fight. A body in stress does not attempt to repair damaged tissues. Stress damages bodies in SO many ways.” Nina could have spoken longer and we were very interested; but this met the time limit of her presentation. We all had some wondering to do. Were our glands enlarged, shrunken, or balanced? Blood tests could tell, Nina advised. The best thing to do is relax, and love yourselves, then you have love to give to others to help them pass the love along. Thank you, Nina, I feel more educated about my body. Our clapping roused the sleeping children, which undoubtedly tweaked THEIR adrenal glands in momentary freight! Not a bad way to spend a blustery afternoon.

WHAT CAN A COOKIE DO?  Every cookie has a mission, beginning February 12!  (Hickory, NC – February 1, 2011) – Local Girl Scouts, who belong to Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont GSCP2P), will ask customers to help girls do great things by purchasing a box of the tasty treats that not only taste good, but that do good beginning February 12. “People say, ‘it’s just a cookie. What can a cookie do?’ ” says Jeannie Brown, director of product sales for GSCP2P. “For local girls, a Girl Scout cookie can do a lot.” While cookies are only available for approximately two months, local Girl Scouts reap the benefits all year long. Girls decide where the money goes. A Girl Scout cookie could help girls pay for camp, purchase uniforms and badges, fly a troop to a destination of their choice or buy school supplies for needy kids. It could also cheer up a soldier far from home. Every cookie has a mission: to do great things. The core of the Girl Scout Cookie Program focuses on teaching girls five essential skills including goal setting, business ethics, money management, decision-making and people skills – all of which help girls in their future, whatever they choose to do.This year, Girl Scouts can also track their goals online and become part of a safe online Cookie Connector asking their friends and families to purchase cookies. And, because girls are now even more internet savvy, they can secure orders through social networks; however, Girl Scouts cannot collect money online for their purchases. The price per box is $4, and all of the proceeds generated from the Girl Scout Cookie Program stay within the girls’ local area to help fund girl-led programming. “It’s important to let people know that the Girl Scout Cookie Program is more than a fundraiser – it’s a leadership program for girls,” said Marcia Cole, chief executive officer for Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont. “Every cookie has a mission: to help girls do great things, and our girls certainly take that to heart.”ew this year to the lineup of available treats is Shout-Outs!, a Belgian-style wafer cookie that carries messages such as “Change,” “Learn” and “Lead.” In addition, Girl Scouts will be selling favorite treats like the Thin Mint and Shortbreads along with other great timeless classics like Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties and Peanut Butter Sandwiches. Plus, the product line includes “new” classic varieties such as Thanks-A-Lots and Lemonades.The Girl Scouts are even going eco-friendly this year, premiering environmentally friendly packaging for the Thanks-A-Lots cookies. This effort aims to remove 150 tons of paperboard from the waste stream.To purchase a box of cookies, contact a Girl Scout in your neighborhood or community. Or, search the council web site at www.girlscoutsp2p.org to find the closest cookie booth in your area from February 12 to March 14.This year, the Girl Scouts are promoting the following:  BUY 5 promotion – for every five boxes that a customer purchases, his/her name will be entered in a drawing to win a year's supply (52 boxes) of free Girl Scout cookies from the council! A winner from each of the four service centers will be selected.    Operation Sweet Treat – Girl Scouts are also participating in a council-wide service project to collect 12,000 boxes of cookies and 1,000 letters of encouragement to place in care packages that will be shipped to U.S. military personnel serving in the United States and abroad. Customers can support this project by purchasing a box at a local cookie booth and pay $4 a box as they would for any other order. Or, cookies may be purchased by the box or by the case (12 Your Local Rental Place boxes) by calling 800-672-2148.  Further questions can be directed to a local Girl Scout Service Center: Colfax Service Center, phi 336-274-8491

The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.

The 10 Commandments - God's Revelation in the Old Testament The 10 Commandments are found in the Bible's Old Testament at Exodus, Chapter 20. They were given directly by God to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai after He had delivered them from slavery in Egypt: "And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your God… ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.' TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.' THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.' FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.' FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.' SIX: 'You shall not murder.' SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.' EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.' NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.' TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.' The 10 Commandments Christ's Summation in the New Testament About 1,400 years later, the 10 Commandments were summed up in the New Testament at Matthew 22, when Jesus was confronted by the religious "experts" of the day: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40). A reflective reading of Christ's teaching reveals that the first four commandments given to the children of Israel are contained in the statement: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." It continues that the last six commandments are enclosed in the statement: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong.. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen so I'm going to tie you to my heart so I never lose you. Nullam arcu leo, facilisis ut

100 Man Project December Report

H E L I B E R T Y L E year one of the directors is suggesting we rent a dental care bus and have a free dental care event for those less fortunate in our area. One dentist and his team have offered to help if the 100 Man Project pursues this. It was decided to discuss this more at later meetings.

At the January 7, 2011 meeting the Treasury officer reported on all of 2010. During the first calender year of operation $13,101.11 in donations and $542 in riding fees were collected for a total of $13,543.11 in finances. The expenses for 2010 were $6,729.32 leaving a balance of $6,913.79 as of From, January 1, 2011. The biggest expenses were the purchase of 100 Man Project Corresponding Secretary, the CARS van and automobile insurance for it. Gas wasn't a Adam York big expense thanks to 500 gallons of it being donated by Euliss Oil. Also, just recently the 100 Man Project received a $4,000 grant from the Emily Millis Hiett Fund in High Point, raising available funds to $10,913.79. At the maintenance portion of the meeting J.R. Beard reported he'd talked to Mr. Stanley of Euliss Oil and since they were nice enough to donate gas the 100 Man Project decided to continue getting fuel there after the donated fuel runs out. The Maintenance Officers reported that the CARS Van is in working order, but Fast - Friendly - Professional Tax Service report they noticed a lot of dirt in the van when they refueled. It was recommended everyone check behind them “Convenient Service At when using the CARS van for dirt, mud, or leaves. The disYour Door Step” patcher, Terry Stutts, reported that December was a slow month for the CARS Program with only 14 clients transCall for ported eight of those by the CARS Van and six by personally Appointment at owned vehicles. Four calls were received asking for information on CARS, two people were rejected due to lack of com336-653-4866 or 336patibility with equipment and, five were canceled with three 839-0477 due to lack of a driver. It was recommended that if you help hold a wheelchair on the lift of the van don't stand on it Tmobiletaxservice@yahoo.com because the lift is designed for one person at a time. The 100 Man Project is also looking for a backup for Terry in case of future problems. The directors reported two new CARS drivers, Gary Dotson who will drive on the second Friday of the schedule and W. T. Garner will again drive on the second Wednesday. It was decided when a wheelchair bound person is transported by CARS a second person needs to  ride to help. More volunteer backup drivers are needed to fill in when extra help is required. As of January 3 two reading initiatives were started for Liberty Elementary students that will last to May 2. One is a contest amongst each grade level where the class that reads the most books gets a pizza party at the end of the school year. The other initiatives is a drawing in which each book a Liberty student checks out at the Liberty Library or each visit they make to the Liberty Nature Research Library they are entered in a contest to win SOLD OUT That is what was on the door at the Liberty a $100, $50, or $25 Wal-mart gift card. The directors also mentioned a Randolph county business man named Mark Showcase this past month. Eric Chilton and The Brower who offered a good price of $2,195 on a 9 ft. tall Chill Tones brought out so many that the Show22X21 ft. A-frame carport completely installed. Harold case was filled up. Due to so many still wanting Brower and Cladora Fogleman offered to help pay $500 a piece to help purchase the carport. Roger Davis is checking tickets they have agreed to come back on Saturwhere it would be legal to put the carport near the current day April 9th at 7pm for another show. So do location of the CARS van. After further discussion a motion not wait, tickets are getting gone fast. was made and passed to purchase the carport from Mark Brower. After that Gary brought up the fact that the 100 Man Project needs to get a letter from William Smith, who owns the property where the Carport will be placed, that insures the 100 Man Project retains ownership of the carport. During the course of the 100 Man Project several drivers have mentioned that they'd prefer to drive a car as opposed to the CARS van. Mainly because a car is easier to drive, saves on fuel costs, and the van is only needed for the handicapped. So the directors are thinking of having a special board of directors meeting about getting a second smaller CARS vehicle to help relieve the van. The Directors decided to have two drivers meetings at the Liberty Fire Department scheduled for 7:00pm on both January 25 and 26 that will last around 45 minutes to get driver input on the CARS program. The CARS van will be at the meetings in case drivers have questions or suggestions about it. Several people have helped this year with 100 Man Project funding and it has been calculated that each fiscal year, July 1 through June 30, Fall and winter is the time to plant shrubbery and trees $9,000 to $11,000, not including collected riding fees, will be needed to keep things running. The 100 Man Project is thinking of having a yearly fund raising event to help with finances. It could be a cookout, steak supper or some meal, possibly at the Liberty Fire Department. It will be discussed more at the drivers meetings and the next directors meeting. At some point this

Letʼs face it, our feet and ankles have a lot of pressure on them to help us throughout life. For this very reason, The Human Motion Institute at Randolph Hospital is partnering with Dr. Steven Tilles, D.P.M., to provide a program titled “Most Common Foot and Ankle Problems.” You are invited to attend this free, one-of-a-kind program, which will be conducted on Tuesday, February 15th, 2011 from Noon – 1:30 p.m. in the Randolph Hospital Private Dining Room. The Private Dining Room can be accessed by entering the Patient Welcome Center through the 3rd level access of the parking deck. Registrants are encouraged to arrive at Noon and enjoy a provided lunch before the program begins at 12:15 p.m. Participants will hear from a local expert, Dr. Steven Tilles, D.P.M., with Asheboro Foot and Ankle Specialists, as he leads an informative discussion on the “Most Common Foot and Ankle Problems.” Through this program you can learn what you can do to get the relief you need to ensure that your feet and ankles will support you through your life.Americans are enjoying longer, more active lives today than any other time in history. Yet, as we age our bodies change and a lifetime of activity and occasional abuse takes its toll on everyone. Sometimes those changes result in specific problems related to your feet and ankles. More than 5.3 million visits are made to physiciansʼ offices each year because of foot and ankle problems. Donʼt let foot or ankle pain impact your daily living, attend the free “Common Foot and Ankle Problems” program and gain the knowledge and experience needed to help you return to pain-free activities. Registration is required and is limited. To register for this program please visit call 336633-7788 or you may visit our website at www.randolphhospital.org.
