Liberty Has A New Logo

One of the items that the community thought was needed was to hire a Branding company to come up with a new logo for the town. This came from months of planning sessions at the NC STEP Grant meetings. After about 6 revisions of changes and numerous sample art presented the town finally accepted the below graphic. This was not a one person venture, but was a work of numerous community members working together. There was an outside branding company that guided us (Cause Keepers), a steering committee, community input that included age, race and work backgrounds to cover all thoughts and the final approval of our town council. Liberty is a great place to live. Is Liberty perfect, no, but there was only one perfect person that has ever been and that is Jesus. I am so excited to see the new logo incorporated in the July Celebration Banner and Design, it is part of our new visitor website www.celebrateliberty.org go check it out. Also at the July 11th Festival in Liberty visit the Liberty Chamber and NC STEP which will at the INFO booth and you can pick up your FREE window cling as you see below, place in your business window or event on one of your car windows.

So Lets Change Your Outlook - Wake Up Folks By Kevin Bowman I’ve used this story on countless occasions as it really does show the difference that attitude can make. I have used it with my kids, my co -workers, community members and in church . Here lately I have been so frustrated with the people that cross my path and likewise several of my friends have also. From Liberty to Staley to Ramseur and, it is time to start looking at things different. Our attitudes can make a world of difference. There was once a traveller who was walking from a village in the mountains to a village in the valley.As he walked along, he saw a monk working in a field, so he stopped and said to the monk, “I’m on my way to the village in the valley, can you tell me what it’s like?” The monk looked up from his labour and asked the man where he had come from. The man responded, “I have come from the village in the mountains.” “What was that like?” the monk asked.“Terrible!” the man exclaimed, “no-one spoke my language, I had to sleep on a dirt floor in one of their houses, they fed me some sort of stew that had yak or dog or both in it and the weather was atrocious.” “Then I think that you will find that the village in the valley is much the same,” the monk noted. A few hours later another traveller passed by and he said to the monk, “I am on my way to the village in the valley, can you tell what it’s like?” “Where have you come from?” enquired the monk.“I have come from the village in the mountains.”“And what was that like?”“It was awesome!” the man replied, “No-one spoke my language so we had to communicate using our hands and facial expressions. I had to sleep on the dirt floor which was really cool as I’ve never done that before. They fed me some sort of weird stew and I have no idea what was in it but just to experience how the locals lived was great and the weather was freezing cold, which meant that I really got a taste of the local conditions. It was one of the best experiences of my life.” “Then I think that you’ll find that the village in the valley is much the same,” responded the monk. Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we respond. Don’t allow the challenges of life to take away your joy. There are lots of reasons to complain and be miserable if that’s how you look at life. There are lots of reasons to be enthusiastic and joyful if that’s how you look at life.How do you look at life?

Since the beginning of time, native peoples have participated in ceremonies that provided deep meaning and growth to their lives. These ceremonies included the Vision Quest. The Vision Quest is a four day wilderness experience immersed in nature, while reflecting on life challenges and possibilities. All ancient societies used the Quest as a rite of passage between childhood and adulthood. Today, the Quest is a valuable tool in navigating and guiding toward clear choices for changing careers or as a route to find meaning and regain passion in life. It is a means of reconnection and the opportunity to feel whole and alive again. Vision is about finding the place in society that best suits your talents to unfold your path of joy and fulfillment. Only you are responsible for the life you live and the legacy you leave behind. The Quest is for people who are seeking, and called to find a real purpose in their lives. If you have read this far and feel a stirring deep inside, you may be one who is called to the Quest. If you yearn to be part of the solution by helping other people, animals or the planet in a meaningful way, the Quest may be 'calling' you. It may be the door which has opened as the past one has closed. Would you like to know more about the healing and purpose that comes from participation in this ancient rite? In order for the Quest to be available to fit your needs, we offer the traditional 4day Vision Quest and a shortened 24 hour Quest. Contact Novella or Sam Kennedy at Earth Visions: earthvisions@rtelco.net or 336 622 1844.

Where Fitness, Fun & Fellowship Become One!

Many do not realize the great finds at Gracie’s Produce. Now you can get NC Fresh Seafood delivered weekly straight from the coast. A truck that makes a run to the triad now stops off here in Liberty. Local Don Herndon stated, “You can buy fresh NC fish at Gracies Veggie Box. Judy and I purchased delicious yellow fin tuna and fresh flounder for tonight's dinner. She has scallops and mahi mahi, too. Liberty area customers need to support her in this endeavor.” Another secret is lots of her produce is coming right from local gardens in the area. She also supports locals by selling things like Pulley's BBQ Sauce, local honey, and local jellies and more. Farm fresh eggs are a large seller. We need to support our local mom and pop business. They are what make up our community. Make a point this month shop some of the local business in your community.

July 2015 New Logo and Tagline Introduce GreensboroRandolph Megasite Asheboro, NC Together with the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite Foundation, the Randolph County Economic Development Corporation is pleased to introduce the logo and tagline for the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite. This logo and branding marks the beginning of a marketing platform to inform prospects, allies and stakeholders about the competitive advantages and opportunities that the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite represents. The tagline is “Thrive in the Heart of North Carolina.” “The logo mark is modern and distinctive and combines elements from our partners’ brands including Greensboro and the State of North Carolina,” says Bonnie Renfro, president of the Randolph Economic Development Corporation. “We look forward to incorporating this logo into marketing and communications messages and tactics as we raise awareness of our megasite.” The logo and tagline were developed in a collaborative process led by Marketing Alliance, Inc., an economic development marketing firm based in Mississippi. Collaborators included representatives from Randolph County EDC, Randolph County, the City of Greensboro, the Greensboro Partnership, the Piedmont Triad Partnership and the GreensboroRandolph Megasite Foundation.

July 16 Thursday

2015 RCEDC Annual Meeting The Randolph County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) highlighted the Greensboro Randolph Mega Site at its 30th Annual Meeting today. Speakers included Darrell Frye, Chairman of the Randolph County Board of Commissioners, Jim Melvin, former Greensboro Mayor and Chair of the Greensboro Randolph Mega Site Foundation, and Rick Powell, CEO of automotive supplier PEMMCO Manufacturing and Chair of the EDC Board. The Mega Site was identified as a regional economic development priority to position the region to attract a major employer that would create thousands of new manufacturing and supplier jobs to benefit the area. Located in northeastern Randolph County on US 421, the site has excellent highway and rail access in a region and county with a strong manufacturing base. Powell said that successful communities adapt to change. Using a thirty year comparison of the top 100 companies in the Dow Jones, only ten are still present today. Melvin said the project would transform our region into an economic powerhouse. He said, "We must have jobs to attract young people or we die." Frye said this commitment is for the future of the county and its economy.

The EDC honored Jim Melvin with the 2015 Partner in Progress Award for his leadership and commitment to the Mega Site project and his vision for new opportunities and hope for all the citizens of the community. The annual award was created in 1997 to recognize those individuals, organizations and groups that make a significant contribution to economic development in Randolph County.

August 20 Rich & Craig

The Randolph County EDC reported on a very successful year with more than $80 million in new investment and 853 new jobs announced. Projects included major expansions at Technimark, Thomas Buses, and Kennametal as well as new business locations for Brookline Furniture, Ambella Home Collection, and PetPro Resources, among others. Fourteen industrial announcements impacted 850,000 square feet of real estate and secured more than $1.2 million in grants for construction and infrastructure. Randolph County as part of the Greensboro High Point MSA was named Number 1 in the nation for new and expanded corporate facilities by Site Selection Magazine in 2014.

The annual 100 Man Project’s Dental Van Event was held at the Liberty Fire Department on Friday, June 5. This is the fifth year. The NC Baptist Men Ministry provided the Dental Bus filled with two dental chairs, a portable chair for cleanings, also equipped with all the tools and equipment needed to operate a dental clinic. The mobile dental van served 37 patients with 13 extractions, 13 fillings and 11 cleanings. The 100 Man Project would like to thank Capri’s for providing a delicious lunch for all our volunteers. The Dental Van would not be possible without our wonderful volunteer dentists, Dr. Chip Butler, Dr. Neal Morrison, dental assistants Sarah Marshall and Renee Brady, hygienists Trish Redding and Rebecca Erickson, blood pressure assistants Lori Cobb and J. R. Beard, minister and interpreter David Hobson, project leaders Kaffy Reynolds and Don Lambe. The 100 Man Project would also like to thank all the directors, drivers, and NC Baptist Men Mobile Dental Ministry who help make this year’s dental van a great success. "This is a great way for the businesses and professionals in Liberty to help and give back to those in need" says Trish Redding, one of the hygienists who provided dental cleanings. The Butler dental practice has been in Liberty for over 50 years, started by Dr. Ed Butler in 1964.

July 2015 100-Man Project Supports Reading at Liberty Elementary For the fifth year in a row, the 100-Man Project supported reading at Liberty Elementary. In the past, the community service organization sponsored its own reading contest at the school. This year the group decided to support Liberty Elementary’s reading contest by offering Homeland Creamery ice cream parties to the winning classes and $30 Walmart gift cards to the winning students. Classes reading the most books in their grade level who were treated to ice cream parties were: Owens’ kindergarten class; Cromer’s first grade; Heilig’s second grade; Martin’s third grade; Porterfield’s fourth grade; Hicks’ fifth grade. Serving ice cream to the winning classes were Sandra and Warren Dixon, Susan and Walt Foster, Linda and Tommy McManus, Tom Meacham, Don Lambe, Sue Showfety and Sue Garner. Students reading the most books in their grade level and winning $30 Walmart gift cards were: Aiden Armfield, Owens’ kindergarten; Logan Billups, Cromer’s first grade; Hunter Ward, Heilig’s second grade; Olivia Rhew, Martin’s third grade; Frieda Cruz, Porterfield’s fourth grade; Emy Tan, Hicks’ fifth grade. In addition to the reading contest at Liberty Elementary, the 100-Man Project sponsored a contest at the Liberty Public Library. Any Liberty Elementary student who checked out a book during the contest was entered in a drawing for one of three $30 Walmart gift cards. Winners of this drawing were Mason Strickler, Martin’s third grade; Zoey Goedeck, Whitaker’s fourth grade; Addie McGuffin, Richardson’s fourth grade. Congratulations to all these winning classes and students. The 100-Man Project will continue to support reading at Liberty Elementary and hopes that all students will realize that reading pays.

Here are the answers to the Liberty Patterson Cottage Trivia Challenge

In case you missed the last open house at the Patterson Cottage, here are the answers to the questions in last months “Liberty Leader”: On what date did the temperature in Liberty reportedly hit 128 degrees? The Statesville, N.C. “Record and Landmark” recorded that on Wednesday, July 23, 1930, “R.C. Palmer, operator of a service station near Liberty, today reported that his thermometer reached the 120 degree mark while Roy Reitzel reported that his thermometer, placed in front of his store, flew open after hitting the 128 degree point.” What local Liberty businessman not only operated a skating rink downtown but also played in the band Rock-a-Tones? Junior Jenkins, owner-operator of Lake Juno, had a skating rink downtown in the Jenkins’ Building in the late 1950’s and also played in the Rock-a-Tones, along with Woody Cox, Jerry McDowell and two others. The group recorded at least one record, “Please Don’t Talk About Me (When I’m Gone)” under the Judy Tone Record label. Check out the photos of the Rock-a-Tones at Hurricane Jane’s. Junior is the one on bass. What Liberty doctor operated a furniture manufacturing plant, bottled a “liver cure” and still found time to practice medicine? Dr. George Foster operated Foster Furniture Company in 1920 in Liberty. The Patterson Cottage has his corporate seal for the company. He also invented and peddled “Foster’s Liver Kick”, which he advertised as a “reliable remedy for high blood pressure, constipation and rheumatism.” What future mayor billed himself as a “salesman” at the age of 15? Roy Reitzel, an entrepreneur most of his life, was the Liberty mayor who pushed through the town’s water works in 1926. Later he ran a café where he featured the “Crumble Burger.” What Liberty “mall” flourished in the 1950’s, featuring a hardware, Pontiac and Massey Ferguson dealerships, café, grocery, barbeque pit, gas, tires, motel rooms and a bowling alley? Kivett’s Mall, just south of Liberty on old Highway 421, which was then the main highway to Ft. Bragg and the coast, was operated by Bill “Big Man” Kivett and his son W.L. Kivett. W.L. Kivett’s son, “Rascal”, still does custom welding in part of the remaining building. What was Liberty’s first industry? Evidently our first industry was Liberty Broom Works, established in 1890 and managed by W.D. Burgess. Newspapers of the time reported in 1892 that Liberty Broom was producing 250 dozen brooms a month. The company was resurrected in 1918 by Clyde Luther. Why was the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley railroad routed through Liberty? The railroad was originally planned to be built to Staley, then routed west to Highway 22, then north to Climax. Much of the grading had been done when workers discovered massive rock formations near Sandy Creek. It was then decided that it would be cheaper to re-route the railroad through the crossroads of Liberty. Who patented and sold the Liberty Poultry Roost system in 1914, promising that it would “free your chickens from lice, mites and all kinds of vermin”? James H. Johnson, an early Liberty businessman who actually started a company in 1906 called “Liberty Chair”, evidently invented this system. The body temperature from the chickens raised the temperature of the “Liberty Lice Killer” contained in the perches and released the vapor that killed the lice and mites. The company lasted almost a year. What house still standing on Fayetteville Street was hit by lightning in 1899, knocking down the mantle and just missing the baby? The house on 212 S. Fayetteville St. Vance York’s house at the time, was hit by lightning in 1899. The baby who was unhurt was Brower Vance York, born February 20, 1898, who served in World War I, II and Korea and rose to the rank of Lt. Colonel. Many Liberty residents remember his sister who lived in the house, Mary York Saunders. What benefit did the town of Liberty gain in the fire of 1926? The fire, which destroyed Liberty Chair Company, forced the town to consider a water works and the project was pushed through by Mayor Roy Reitzel. The water tower on West Swannanoa was built at this time. What courses did Liberty Normal College offer? According to the college’s 1902 catalog, it offered Plane and Solid Geometry, Trigonometry, Physics, Moral Philosophy, Advanced Greek, Pedagogy, Astronomy, Zoology, Calculus, Logic, Latin, French and English and American literature, among others. The Patterson Cottage will host an open house again Saturday, July 18 from 11:00 to 2:00. Stop by and learn more about the history of your community.

Randolph Rotary Presents High Honors for Outstanding Community Service 
 Randolph Rotary Club combined its two highest honors – Public Service and Service Above Self Awards – and awarded commemorative plaques and certificates to six worthy recipients. The award winners received their recognition and spoke in front of a host of family members and friends while President-Elect Warren Coble presided. “We’re proud to be able to honor outstanding public servants who give so much to make our world a better place,” said Coble. Rotarian Tom Pugh conducted the "Service Awards" portion. Those honored were: Highway Patrolman Jedidiah Frye, a former Sergeant in the US Marine Corp., joined the NC State Highway Patrol in 2004. He is credited with making 68 DUI arrests in 2014. He is an active member of First Christian Church of Ramseur, Director of the Upward Basketball Sports Ministries and coaches two community basketball teams. He is married and has two sons. Eric Snodgrass is one of only two Crime Scene Investigators with the Asheboro Police Department. He joined the Department in July 2007. In addition to his regular duties he is a member of the SWAT team and is Post advisor for the Police Department's Explorer Program. Eric is married and has two sons and a daughter. Jason Chabot has been with the Randolph County Sheriff's Department for over eleven years. Originally hired as a jailer, he has risen through the ranks to Sergeant in the Investigations Division and is the agency's lead firearms instructor. He also has served on the North Carolina Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Introductions were made by Rotarians Amy Williams, Bill Hoover and David Caughron, respectively. The "Service Above Self" awards were conducted by Rotarian Hal Powell and President- Elect Warren Coble introduced the following honorees: Major JoAnn Sapp received her certificate for the caring attitude she shows toward her job of 23 years as the head administrator over the Randolph County Jail. Chuck Powers was presented a certificate for his work in helping individuals released from the Randolph Correctional Center to get acclimated back into society. Of the last 28 people he has helped, only one has returned to prison thus far. Reverend Terry A. Godwin, an unpaid minister to the inmates at the Randolph Correctional Center, was presented the "Service Above Self" plaque for his inspiring ministry with the inmates at the state prison. He is also Chairman of the Prison Community Resource Council and Head of the Prison Veterans' Affairs Committee. Service Above Self Award was created to recognize a member of the community who is not a Rotarian but who exemplifies Rotary International's motto of Service Above Self.

Randolph Hospital Earns Pair of Multistate Quality Awards Randolph Hospital’s dedication to quality enhancements and putting the patient first have once again resulted in recognition, this time by the North Carolina Virginia Hospital Engagement Network, shortened to NoCVA.The awards, presented recently, were for Randolph Hospital’s efforts to reduce hospital-acquired conditions and readmissions as a member of the NoCVA. The first award was for Outstanding Team Engagement for Improving Patient and Family Engagement. The second was for Outstanding Team Engagement for Enhancing Maternal/Child OB (Obstetrics) Safety. Each award represents years of hard work and collaboration. Randolph Hospital participated along with more than 100 other North Carolina and Virginia hospitals and in the end, just nine awards were given; Randolph Hospital won two. Representatives from all over the Randolph Hospital network comprised the teams and each benefitted from physician participation. The Patient and Family Engagement team worked for the better part of a year, said Debbie Dowling, senior director of Quality Management, to create the Patient and Family Advisory Council tasked with involving patients and family members in the process improvement and development process. “The Patient and Family Advisory Council is getting the voice of the patients and family to help us design and implement our processes,” Dowling said. “We really believe in our values and putting patients first.” Chief Medical Officer Dr. Charles West and Chief Nursing Officer Tremonteo Crawford co-chair the Council of 16, which includes a number of patient and family advisors. Dowling said the Council is still recruiting patient and family advisors and hopes to have around five. Each patient and family advisor acts as the voice of the patients and family for discussion and input. The OB Safety team also made several important strides toward improving patient safety. “We’re using TeamSTEPPS, which is a national framework for improving patient safety and communication among providers of care,” Dowling said. “The OB team was learning some of those techniques. The OB team now debriefs after every C-section. It takes five minutes and we find out what went well and what could be improved.” The team also began a new series of simulation training.“Another thing the OB department is now doing is focused simulation education,” she said. “They are participating in simulating obstetrical emergencies.” The program included training for the teams, one in Winston-Salem and one in Durham. It also included regular webinars and on multiple occasions, the NoCVA invited Randolph Hospital staff members to join as guest speakers. The NoCVA is one of many hospital engagement networks (HEN) spread across the country.

GIRL SCOUTS HONORS 114 GIRLS WITH PRESTIGIOUS GOLD AWARD There is no higher award in Girl Scouting than the Girl Scout Gold Award, and Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont (GSCP2P) is proud to announce they had 114 girls earn this honor during the 2014-2015 troop year. After the prerequisites are completed, the Girl Scout Gold Award project is the culmination of a girl's demonstration of self-discipline, leadership ability, time management, creativity, initiative and a significant mastery of skills. Achieving the Gold Award takes true commitment and dedication with a minimum of 80 hours of service per girl. Locally and regionally, Girl Scouts collectively contributed a minimum of 9,120 hours, which the council credits with a monetary value of $195,806.40 based on the Independent Sector’s estimated value of volunteer time at $21.47 per hour for North Carolina. “In Girl Scouts, girls don’t just talk about change – they step up and take action by earning their Gold Award and make the world a better place on a personal, community, state, national or international level,” said Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont Chief Executive Officer Lane Cook. “We are so very proud of these 114 remarkable young women and are amazed by their ambition, commitment and good will. They have made the world a better place.” The various Gold Award projects included community Julian : Courtney Brown, Casey Lauren Ellis Liberty: Landis Perry, Morgan Dakotah Shafley Ramseur: Hannah Harris Congratulations Ladies

Raleigh- On Wednesday, July 1, the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles will introduce new statewide requirements for moped operators in accordance with House Bill 1145.These new regulations require all moped operators to register their vehicle with the DMV, and obtain a registration card and license plate, which must be displayed on the rear of the vehicle at all times. Moped operators will be required to visit their local license plate agency for the registration process. The office locations can be found on the DMV website. The cost of registering each moped is $18 annually. Durham ($15), Orange ($15), Randolph ($1) and Wake ($5) counties each charge an additional transit tax. Operators must be 16 years of age or older and must have a valid N.C. driver license or N.C. ID card along with the moped manufacturer’s certificate of origin (MCO). If an operator does not have an MCO for their vehicle, the operator can fill out an Affidavit of Facts for the Registration of a Moped form (MVR-58) to serve as proof of ownership. State statute defines a moped as having two or three wheels with an engine capacity of 50 cubic centimeters or less, no external shifting device or the ability to exceed 30 miles per hour on a level surface. To help customers determine if their vehicle falls within the moped category, Division License and Theft Bureau inspectors will be available at most license plate agencies during the first week of issuance to answer questions. If an L&T inspector is not available, you can visit your nearest L&T District office. Please visit the Division’s website to find Frequently Asked Questions and other information about registering and operating a moped.
