When the Lights Go Down By: Andy Clapp I drove down Greensboro Street again to catch one more glimpse of the beauty of the decorations of the town, understanding that the radiance that we are enjoying in this season will not last. The lights will be taken down and packed away for another year, the landscape of the town reverting back to its’ normal appearance for the other eleven months of the year. I drove by again for one last mental photograph of the season, a season that changes who we are each year when the calendar turns to December. I longed for one lasting image, something I hoped my mind would keep vibrant until this blessed season returns. As I drove away, I felt a bit of despair in my heart, wishing somehow to stop time and remain in the season for just a little while longer. What will it be like when the lights go down? Why must it be packed up, stored away, and completely erased from the scenery as if the season never came? I wanted to turn back and spend a few more moments in Liberty and bask in the glory of the season but the schedules of man took precedence over the longings of the heart, so I continued to drive. I began to wonder who decides when the lights are to be taken down and wonder if they noticed how much darker the streets seem when the lights of Christmas are no longer aglow. As I pondered these things and contemplated why the season could not last longer, I began to realize that the season carries on not in the decorations that are placed up for moment and then taken down, but the season carries on in the lives of those who carry the light of Christ in their lives. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14 NASB) The lights of the season may be removed and set aside for another year, but we are to radiate in the midst of darkness in every season of life. The world, mired in darkness, is desperate for light to shine and as followers of Jesus Christ, we are to shine so that, as Jesus said, “they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16 NASB) The lights that adorn the trees, illuminating the streets and the houses in our town may be packed away soon but the Light that shines in us can never be packed away, will never be hidden, and can never be extinguished. As John said about Jesus, “the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” (John 1 : 5 N LT ) L e t u s continue to shine into 2016 and beyond, the Light within us leading others out of the darkness and pointing them to the One who is the Light of the world!

Your Life in Balance? Healthy Habits to Try in 2016 (StatePoint) Is your life in balance? The new year is a great time to take stock of your routine and make improvements where necessary. Here are some thoughtful habits to consider incorporating into your day in the coming year.

Find Time to Decompress • If you’re a morning person, get out of bed 30 minutes earlier than normal to wake up with your favorite coffee or tea and think about what you need to accomplish for the day. • More of a night owl? Spend at least 30 minutes before going to sleep to unplug from technology and relax with a new book you’ve had on your list to read. • Schedule time for exercise to reduce stress and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Planning workouts ahead of time will make you more likely to stick to them.

Write Everything Down • Handwritten notes and to-do lists will reinforce your memory of the tasks you need to conquer. They also give you the option to look at what you need to do for the day and prioritize the list. Consider a personal planner, such as those from the popular AT-A-GLANCE collection, which includes a variety of styles that reflect your personality and organizational needs. • Documenting your day not only keeps you organized, but also provides you with an opportunity to look back and reflect on your life’s accomplishments, memories and milestones from the year.

• Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet will help you feel great, and can increase your focus, energy levels and productivity. • Plan out your meals ahead of time before going shopping by marking them in a calendar. This will give you more time during the week to cook and prepare meals, without having to make frequent trips to the store or feel tempted to grab take-out. You’ll be more likely to stick with the habit if you love the calendar you use, so consider something easy on the eyes, such as an ATA-GLANCE fashion planner. • Cooking your own fresh meals can help keep your bank account balanced, and is often much healthier than food from a restaurant. And spending time in the kitchen is also a stress reliever for some people. Make a fresh start -- the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to make positive changes to how you schedule and organize your time.

January 2016 What You Need to Know About Winter Driving

(StatePoint) Winter can be an especially perilous time to be on the roads. Snow, ice, fog and longer nights present challenges to drivers that can lead to crashes. People do less driving in winter, yet we have more crashes per mile driven. Some 10,780 people were killed in car crashes between December and March in 2013 -- fully one-third of the total for each year. Nonfatal collisions also occur with greater frequency in winter months. You may be an ace behind the wheel when the sun is shining and roads are dry, but driving in winter weather can be a different story. Drivers need to recalibrate and adjust their driving for winter road conditions. “Travel can be treacherous when roadway surfaces are compromised during winter storms,” says Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council (NSC). “The good news is that in-vehicle technologies can help drivers by providing advance warnings and preventing loss of control.” Three major pieces of advice for driving in wintry conditions: • Slow down. This is the golden rule of winter driving. Drivers frequently underestimate how long it takes to brake and how difficult it can be to steer on slippery roads. • Do not use cruise control when driving on slippery surfaces. It will diminish your control over the car and reduce your reaction time in the event of a skid. • Bridges and overpasses freeze before roadways, so be alert in cold weather when approaching a bridge. “Driving in snow and ice requires much more focus on the conditions and an ability to adapt to an ever-changing, slippery environment,” says Daniel McGehee, director of the Transportation and Vehicle Safety Program at the University of Iowa. Research shows that most consumers are unsure about how some potentially life-saving vehicle safety technologies work. To get better acquainted with your car’s features and learn important winter driving skills, visit on Twitter and Facebook for videos and tools. With the right knowledge and skills, you can make your winter journeys safer. PHOTO SOURCE: (c) Mario Beauregard

3 Reasons to Shop at Small Businesses

(StatePoint) Big box retailers may offer certain conveniences, but shopping at a small business near you can be more satisfying -- from the personal service received to the unique items you may find, not to mention that shopping on Main Street benefits the local economy. Here are some retail trends and other things to consider as you shop at your favorite small businesses. The Local Economy By supporting small businesses, you are supporting local job creation. In fact, small firms accounted for over threefifths of the new jobs created between 1993 and mid-2013, according to government statistics. Spending your shopping budget locally strengthens Main Street and can help your community’s economy thrive. New Technologies A common stereotype of mom and pop stores are that they are antiquated and overpriced, but many small businesses are adopting new technologies to streamline their operations; which can be an important consideration for shoppers in a hurry or on a budget. New Android based point of sale terminals, such as the ergonomically designed V-R7000 and V-R7100 from Casio have widescreen LCD touch panels, and an intuitive, high-resolution interface for faster sales and fewer transactional snafus. For example, these terminals come equipped with a battery to protect memory data in the event of a power failure, and offer efficient store operations by eliminating common hardware problems experienced with PC based hardware. These information terminals can transform retail management and offer small businesses a chance to compete against their big box counterparts. Exclusive Items From the gift shop with handmade crafts made by neighborhood artisans, to the bookshop selling the works of local authors, shopping at small businesses means encountering items on sale that you won’t find elsewhere. Whether you’re redecorating your home or revamping your wardrobe, going local can help you get inspired.

Three Tips for Surviving Cold and Flu Season

(StatePoint) It’s that time of year again. From minor colds to severe flus and fevers, seasonal sicknesses are unpredictable and can sneak up on your family at any time. Unfortunately, even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cannot predict the timing, severity and length of a seasonal virus. Luckily, there are steps you can take to ward off illness and better monitor symptoms when you’re sick. Check in with Your Doctor Make an appointment with your primary care physician to get a look at the family’s vitals. These are good indicators of overall wellness. Plus, it’s a great time to schedule that annual flu shot, if you haven’t already done this. If you’re pregnant, have kids, or are a caregiver to elderly parents, it’s an even better idea to get vaccinated, as these are the most at-risk groups for complications from flu. If you don’t have time to schedule a full exam, many pharmacies like CVS offer quick, in-store vaccinations. Practice Healthy Living Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Get enough sleep, eat the right foods to ensure proper nutrition, drink plenty of water and exercise regularly. Avoid close contact with sick people, and maintain a safe distance from others when you are sick. If necessary, stay home from work or school to keep your germs from spreading. Cover your mouth and nose with a sleeve or tissue when coughing or sneezing. Sanitize doorknobs, light switches and work areas with germkilling soap. Also, don’t forget to wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer throughout the day to combat contamination. Keep Your Cool Even the best preparation can leave your family susceptible to cold and flu. Fever and chills could be a sign you’re getting sick. Remember, a fever isn’t

always a bad thing. It means your body is working hard to fight off infection. But for parents of small children, putting feverish kids to bed at night can still be unnerving. New technology can help you rest at night. For example, TempTraq, available at, is a Bluetooth wearable temperature monitor in the form of a soft, comfortable patch. It records your child’s temperature every 10 seconds for 24 hours, sending the data to your smartphone via a free, downloadable app. You can view real-time data or receive alerts when your child reaches a user-set “red zone” level. “A 24-hour temperature monitor that continuously records a child’s temperature readings could alleviate many parent’s concerns when caring for a sick child,” says Aris Eliades, director of Nursing research, Akron Children’s Hospital. “The child can rest, the parent can be alerted if anything changes, and we as nurses and physicians get needed information to make better decisions for patients.” Find yourself with a stubborn fever? Adults can use it too. Consider keeping TempTraq in your medicine cabinet for unexpected fevers all season long. Take proactive steps for a healthy household. And, when all else fails, grab a hot cup of tea with honey and lemon, a warm blanket and a good movie.

New technology is making it possible to track fevers with real-time temperature monitors.

Plus access to pictures off the whole event will be available as part of the package. So Who Is Angel      Angel Matthews has spent most of her life growing up and living in rural Guilford County, North Carolina. She has always had a love of American history, and has the ability to tell a good story to anyone who is willing to listen. She and her husband, Grant, raised two sons and built a successful business together. Being self-employed gave them the freedom to travel this beautiful country together, and all the while Angel would tell her best friend every bit of history that she knew about the areas they would visit. Grant began loving history the way she did, because he had now been exposed to a great teacher like she had been in the eighth grade, Mr. Bratcher. They began visiting civil war sites, and learned of civil war balls, and while participating at the balls, learned that most civil war era dancers also had a love of history, surpassing their own. Immersing themselves into this time period. they themselves became historians of the civil war. Angel then had in her a heart, a story she had to tell. Charlotte Confederate Cavalry Soldier. So Who Was Charlotte Smith She is a southern lady, a Mosby ranger, a spy, and a conductor of the Underground Railroad.. She is a southern lady, a Mosby ranger, a spy, and a conductor of the Underground Railroad. As a young girl growing up in rural North Carolina, Charlotte Smith leads a charmed life, until she learns about slavery. She feels the need to do something to help those held in bondage. As a young lady she meets the handsome Jeremiah Turner. They have a fairytale courtship and wedding. Shortly after, North Carolina secedes from the Union, and Jeremiah feels he has no other choice but to join the 1st North Carolina Cavalry. He says goodbye and leaves her to take care of the farm. After hearing a lady talk about “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” she decides to risk everything, and help runaway slaves. She is attacked at home, and leaves traveling three hundred miles to see Jeremiah. Just her and her horse Logan journey to Middleburg Virginia, where his last letter was post marked. She faces many obstacles along the way. She arrives two months later, half dead. Jeremiah is now with Mosby’s Once there she decides if she has to fight to stay alive at home, she will stay and fight alongside Jeremiah.

Paisley was a little nervous at first, but then she didn't want to sit down and watch the movie, she wanted to talk to them. I think by Ansleigh's big smile she loved it, too! I loved the way they stayed and sang and danced throughout the movie! I loved the way Paisley sang along with "Let It Go". Fun, fun!” They have plans for March for Peter Pan. Be on the watch.

Whole Foods Focus Fresh, unprocessed foods are the cornerstone of a healthful diet. Whole foods include fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds -- all presented in their purest forms, free of unnecessary additives such as artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, sweeteners and hydrogenated fats. Build a recipe for success with an ongoing grocery list that incorporates natural foods you’re excited to try, and begin to make small swaps. If it seems like an adventure, you’ll be inspired to avoid high-calorie, low-nutrient foods, and stick to those that provide energy and key disease-fighting properties. Excellent examples of power-packed foods include bananas, dark leafy greens, black beans, avocados, strawberries, peas, quinoa, almonds, chia seeds and rolled oats. Shopping tip: these foods are typically located around the perimeter of the market. Mealtime Magic at Home Take a few minutes each week to make meal plans. Preparing and consuming mostly home-cooked meals will train your palate to enjoy more healthful fare. And it’s worth the effort to know exactly what’s in each dish. Over time, you’ll learn to cook creatively with whole-food ingredients. Heathy eating can be a breeze with a wealth of mealtime ideas that take 30 minutes or less to prepare. A highperformance blender, like the Vitamix 780, makes it easy to whip up plant-based concoctions like smoothies, soups and whole-food juices -- even healthy sorbets made from nothing but frozen fruit. The blender has five touchscreen preprogrammed settings and an LED control panel to quickly create recipes with a single touch. Stick to It Now that you’ve committed to a whole foods-centered eating regimen, ensure old habits stay in the past. Take a few moments to write down scenarios that might sidetrack you and how to avoid them. For example, partner up with friends or loved ones to form a support system and encourage each other to make healthy choices when getting together for occasional meals out. And lastly-- it’s okay to indulge here and there. You will be successful if you are happy about your choices and don’t feel restricted. Focus on this new approach to eating to set out on the right course to optimal health. Understand what whole foods are, how to include them in your diet, and work with a support system. You’ll be well on the way to long-term success. PHOTO SOURCE: (c) Kalman & Pabst Photo Group PHOTO CAPTION: Soups and smoothies make for quick, healthful meals.

History Comes Back To Life (Or Lights) Local Don Herndon passed on the word to me that the Kimesville lights were back on at the lake. I could not wait to travel down to see them. It had been numerous years since I could even recall driving by them. After inquiring, I came to learn that it has been 20 years since these lights had burned. I remember making the curves heading down Alamance Church Road in Kimesville toward to Burlington to look over and see the water spill over the rock damn at Kimesville Lake and then seeing the splendor of the lights reflecting in the water. Well if you want to relieve memories or experience if for the first time venture down there. Now as you can see in the picture, MERRY CHRISTMAS is stretched across the dam all light up. I came to learn that locals, Jeff and Cindy Falwell, Paula Linberry and John Drake spend a weekend getting the display up. Come to find out this is the original display that had been stored in an old tobacco barn. History about this location is back in 1812 the Kimesville Stone Dam was built to peer a gristmill. Following that, a textile mill was constructed across the road from the lake and life sprung up in the area and a small mill village was created. A store and post office sprang up also. Locals tell me in 40’s this lake became a summer destination for swimming, fishing and boating. You see this lake goes on back father than you can see from the road, it is approx. 50 acres that in its day, had a sandy beach and a tower you could dive off. They even had dances held there in a recreation hall. According to records in the 60’s a team called the Muskrats was home to this community that played basketball and softball. My sources said that this is the team that originally hung the banner. I visited to try and find all these original destination spots and a neighbor said they had been torn down long time ago. I love seeing love for your community and heritage being reborn.

The Holiday Surprise Nobody Wants Julia Garrett had not visited her parents in eight months. The thirteen-hour drive from Boston to Kernersville passed quickly because she was so happy to be going “home” for the holidays. As she pulled into the driveway, she scanned the well-lit front porch where her mother usually would be waiting, but the porch was empty. When Julia stepped in the front door, she was surprised by the unusual smell lingering in the air. She expected the usual scents of mulled cider and pumpkin pies. It took a few minutes to identify, but the odor of dirty diapers was unmistakable. That was odd: she could not think of anyone in the family who had a new baby. Her mother swooped into the room and wrapped her in hugs. As they separated and Julia got a clear view of her mother’s face, she was startled by how tired her mother looked and by how much she had aged. Looking in to the den, she could see that her dad was in his recliner watching TV, his back to the doorway. She stepped over quickly to face him and received another jolt: he looked terrible. He had lost a lot of weight, there were dark circles under his eyes, his shirt was spotted with food stains, and he seemed to be looking through her rather than at her. Her close proximity informed her that he was the source of the dirty diaper odor. Coming to her side, her mother immediately noticed the smell and walked her dad down the hall to the bedroom, speaking to him as she would one of the grandchildren. Julia stood in shock at the realization that her father was not only incontinent but was losing his awareness and adult capabilities. In the days that followed, Julia’s mother described the drastic decline in her dad’s mental health after he fell off a ladder and injured his head in the spring. The incontinence issues were only the tip of the iceberg, as her father’s sharp mind entered the foggy confusion of dementia and his caregiving spouse began to reach the end of her rope physically, mentally, and emotionally. Julia realized the situation had reached critical mass in a very short time and if she did not act quickly, her mother’s health could be at risk. This was one surprise Julia wished she could have avoided! This month, many people will travel to visit older family members for the holidays and have a surprising experience similar to Julia’s. They will observe drastic changes in abilities, attitudes, and behaviors in the person whose health has declined and in the person who is providing care. Without a reliable point of reference, they may make incorrect conclusions about the situation and about the alternatives for solutions. Navigating the options for care and support of aging adults is like entering a maze, where false turns mean lost time and setbacks in opportunities for improvements in health and wellbeing. Fortunately for Julia Garrett and her parents, a quick Google search led them to local resources for information about dementia, in-home care, family caregiver support programs, home-delivered meals, Medicare and Medicaid, adult day care, Veterans services, and many other long-term support services, many of which they did not know existed. For most people, this kind of holiday “surprise” is inevitable. The experts know that you will need many services to support both caregivers and care recipients so they can age in place with dignity and independence. In the twelve-county Piedmont Triad region, the Area Agency on Aging partners with more than sixty agencies that provide an array of services authorized by the Older Americans Act to assist older adults, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers. To learn more about supports for maintaining independence and aging at home, contact these “lead agencies” in each county: Alamance: Alamance ElderCare, Inc., (336) 538-8080 Caswell: Caswell County Senior Services, (336) 694-7447 Forsyth: Senior Services, Inc. (Winston-Salem), (336) 725-0907 Guilford: Senior Resources of Guilford, (336) 373-4816 Montgomery: Montgomery County Council on Aging, (910) 572-3757 Randolph: Randolph County Senior Adults Association, (336) 625-3389; 1 (800) 252-2899 To learn more about long-term care opportunities, such as assisted living or skilled nursing care, call the Area Agency on Aging at (336) 904-0300 and ask for the “Ombudsman” assigned to the county in which your loved one resides. Visit and select “Area Agency on Aging,” then scroll down to the “Funded Partners” link for a comprehensive list of resources in each county.

The Liberty Leader Newspaper Volume 13 Issue 1 January 2016 Five parades and 5,150 books later... News From Randolph County Partnership For Children The Randolph County Partnership For Children--and teams of volunteers-packed bags full of books and headed out on the streets to give a valuable holiday gift, the "Gift of Reading," to young children and families. This year, the "Gift of Reading" reached 5,150 children attending Christmas parades in Asheboro, Randleman, Liberty, Franklinville, Ramseur and Archdale. Books were distributed to help families share the joy of reading at home and establish a strong foundation for success in reading. For over a decade, the Kiwanis Club of Asheboro has joined together with the Partnership to bring the "Gift of Reading" to children and families who attend the Asheboro Christmas Parade. This year, club members were aided by volunteers from the Kiwanis Club Satellite, Asheboro High School Key Club, and Partnership board members. They distributed 2,500 books to children and families. AHS Key Club members labeled all the books. Volunteers from The Timken Company and Randleman High School Key Club distributed more than 1,000 books during the Randleman Christmas Parade. Community volunteers distributed books in Liberty, Franklinville/ Ramseur and Archdale. Books are more than the stories inside. They're a key to unlocking the potential in every child. With the help of many, the "Gift of Reading" made its largest impact ever this year. 

Save the date! We've got the green light and we're ready to fly into the 2016 Gala! The Partnership's annual Gala for the Children is set for Saturday, April 9 at The Cetwick Event Center in Asheboro. The theme is sure to leave you hooked in the Partnership... Peter Pan!    Last year, the sold-out event generated $80,000 for the Partnership's programs and services, a new record. There were 85 volunteers who worked to make the evening happen, 60 sponsors of the event, 140 individuals and businesses who donated beautiful objects, valuable services, and unique experiences to the auctions, and 200 children received the gift of literacy through donations to Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.      We are excited about building on that success.   Tickets to the Gala will be available in early February.     If you are interested in volunteering for the Gala, would like to become a sponsor, or would like to donate an auction item, please contact Jill Jackson at 629-2128, ext. 12.

RCC Foundation Emergency Fund Named After Robert Shackleford

During the Randolph Community College Foundation’s regular board meeting on Nov. 16, Lorie McCroskey, director of development, announced that the name of its Pledge Fund is changing to the Robert Shackleford Emergency Fund. The fund provides assistance to students facing financial emergencies that may cause them to drop out of school. The program was the brainchild of RCC President Robert S. Shackleford Jr. as part of his Presidential Initiatives in 2009-2010. Shackleford challenged the RCC Foundation to adopt a comprehensive college development plan, which included new ways to give such as the Pledge Program and the Legacy Society. “The Pledge program has aided numerous students over the last several years who may otherwise have dropped out of school,” said McCroskey. “Those needs have ranged from tuition costs and books, to gas cards and car parts, to tools and utility payments. We felt the best way to honor Dr. Shackleford for his continued commitment to RCC students was to name the Pledge Fund for him.” In 2014-2015, The Foundation’s RCC Pledge and Title III Emergency funds provided $6,469 to prevent eight students from dropping out due to unforeseen financial crises. To make a gift to the Robert Shackleford Emergency Fund or another Foundation fund, mail a check to RCC Foundation, 629 Industrial Park Ave., Asheboro, NC  27205. Be sure to indicate the fund you wish to support. Gifts may also be made online at Gifts for the 2015 tax year, must be postmarked or made online by Dec. 31. For more information, contact Lorie McCroskey at 336-633-1118.

New Place To Donate Blood I am very excited to see the new opportunity to donate blood that keeps the blood in our readers area. This group has done other drives in our area in 2015 and are getting ready to do another with the help of the boy scouts. I wanted to shed on this new organization that you can donate your pint of blood to. So below is information on this group. Community Blood Center of the Carolinas (CBCC) is our local supplier of blood and blood products. This valuable organization plays a crucial role in our community, providing the blood required to treat cancer, cardiac, sickle cell, trauma and other patients in our hospitals. Collected locally and used locally—every drop stays in our community saving local lives; that is what makes the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas such an important resource. The need for blood is never ending. In fact, more than 400 blood products are required every day to meet the needs of our community. There is no substitute for life-saving blood—it cannot be manufactured or reproduced. Yet it is essential to patients suffering from life-threatening illnesses. As our hospitals keep pace with the increased needs of our region, so must our blood supply. That is why it is so critically important that the community support CBCC by sponsoring blood drives regularly within your businesses, schools, organizations or houses of worship. CBCC has opened the Greensboro Blood Donation and Distribution Center at: 616 Pasteur Dr. They are supplying the Cone Health hospitals in the Triad area and CBCC’s new center will enhance service to donors, sponsors and patients. But we cannot do it without you. You depend on us for your health care. We depend on CBCC for life-saving blood. As a non-pro t community organization, CBCC depends on your support. It only requires a small amount of time to make a life-long difference to a patient in need.

About Us: The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas (CBCC) is a nonprofit community-based blood center and the primary blood supplier to 27 regional hospitals, serving patients that live in 19 North Carolina and three South Carolina counties. We subscribe to a community- based blood banking philosophy. That means that community donors know that the blood they give stays in our community - helping family members, friends and neighbors. Our Mission: To be the steward of a community resource: life-saving blood. CBCC collects blood from the community to return to the community at the lowest possible cost, consistent with the highest standards of quality. Our Vision: To build and strengthen the bonds of community.
