Scouts Rob Graves: of Mold Boy Scout troop 426 is refurbishing the graveyard at Richland Gospel Church at 7661 Richland Church Rd, in Liberty. The troop, led by Eagle Scout candidate, Sawyer Deltano, is laying gravel over an existing drive, placing a raised flower bed around the flag pole, and clearing brush that obstructs the drive as well as overgrowth on the site, and refurbishing and cleaning the gravestones. The gravestones have presented the largest challenge.  The actual dates of the first burials and age of the graveyard have been difficult to determine, some of the markers are simply large stones.  However, there are readable gravestones that have birthdates as early as 1788 listed on the birth/death part of the stone.  At some point of its history, the church was abandoned and graveyard completely overgrown by forest with large standing trees.  The solution appears to have been to set the brush on fire in order to reclaim the graveyard.  This fire did extensive damage to the earliest stones. To address this damage, Sawyer did the research and found a solution that is safe to use on historical markers called D2.  It has been used to clean the Washington monument as well as the White House.  This solution is gently applied and then scrubbed and removed with water.  It is tedious work but the scouts have risen to the challenge. The graveyard is incredibly interesting and has the graves of civil war veterans, as well as many of America’s other conflicts.  The stones mark how difficult life was in early North Carolina with one set of graves noting the loss of four children within one years’ time.

Learning what ICELAND had to Teach We Six Travelers of the Earth Visions fitness group: Lee, Sharyn, Sonja, Teana, Novella and Sam, set out for Iceland.  We thought we had prepared totally for what we were about to undertake. But we were all in for a big surprise. We had carried our packs, and worked out hard for a whole year. We researched and gathered all the gear and food we knew we would need. We studied Iceland weather, population and facts. But, as usual, what you don’t prepare for is exactly what will show up! What we thought was going to happen, did not, but plenty else DID. The glaciers in Iceland are beautiful and dangerous. They are formed when the snows of the winter pile up more and more. Then the weight of it all presses tighter together into slick, thick, ice becoming heavier and heavier. The ice then begins to slide down the mountainside because of gravity. It gouges the soil and piles and pushes a ‘mountain’ of dirt ahead of it. The mountain of dirt for 2017 was 20-30 feet high. We stood next to it as we prepared to walk onto the glacier. The 200 foot hill behind us was the mountain of dirt pushed up by the glacier 20 years ago. Big difference! We put our crampons, (‘ice climbers’) onto our boots, got our ‘ice ax’ and hard hat and listened for further instructions. We wore harnesses to ‘click ourselves onto ropes’ in case we were to fall. “The biggest reason that people fall”, Rory told us as we listened intently, “Is that, while walking, one of the ice walkers catches the opposite pants leg, and takes them down!” We all proceeded to walk like ducks so that we would not catch our pants legs. We were given only a 10 minute lesson of how to walk up hill, downhill and sideways on a hill with our ice climbers, and we were off! That tells you that there were only three ways to proceed and it was all ‘hills’. Over the next four hours we would try to cling onto this glacier and our lives, for two reasons. One, we wanted to live to tell the tale of this totally bazaar and exciting adventure; and two, we wanted to be the group who completed Rory’s (our guide) first week when nobody FELL. We followed Rory so far onto this glacier that we could not see our way back at all. If fact, every time he guided a group, the trail changed to show bigger breaks and holes, because the glacier, moment by moment, became something different. It was melting, not all of it, but enough to have changed every plan we came to Iceland with. We visited an Ice Cave that an under ice river of water had formed beneath the ice, over a long time, and then the river changed course, leaving the cave it had carved. In a day or two, we were told, this cave we were in would no longer exist. It was fragile and above us were tons of ice. Nobody had to tell us not to linger long. Our leaps over gorges, hops around melt holes, and plops when we landed kept us keenly aware that we were living on the edge. It was very exciting! Rory shared tales of how folks had climbed to the top of the glacier, totally prepared, and then a storm blew in. The travelers had 4 days of food and when the storm lasted beyond that, they had tried to come down. The glacier had claimed them, as they fell into a deep, narrow crevasse of ice. The bodies could not be recovered because of the continuing danger on the glacier. Years later their clothes were found. We kept our focus, and took no chances. Glacier walking was NOT what we had come to do in Iceland. We found ourselves on this glacier because the spring melt had prevented us from reaching the ‘Most beautiful trail on earth’ (as proclaimed by National Geographic). The swollen, raging torrents of water had created rivers between us and the trail head. Those glacier-melt rivers could not be crossed by vehicle or man, so the locals encouraged us to abandon that plan. You never know where you may find yourself when your best laid plans fall through, but we found that the glacier walk and many other adventures would unfold as we wandered and discovered this most beautiful and fragile land.

Southerners, Even Though You Weren’t Born Here By Warren Dixon There seems to be a great need for courses on Life in the South, especially for those of you who have moved here recently. Recently meaning within the last thirty years because it often takes that long to be acclimated into Southern society. Southern society meaning being able to hang out at the local store and spit. Anyway, I’ve approached Randolph Community College about offering such a course, especially since budget cuts have taken these courses from our local high schools. It appears, though, that you have to have a master’s degree to be able to teach the subject. That completely lets out my friend Willard, who I was going to recommend, because Willard says Jackson Training School did not offer a master’s degree. Since there aren’t many sources for visitors or new residents to learn about the South, I’ve decided to fill the void through the Liberty Leader. There may be a test later and, if so, passing it will qualify you to gain your citizenship and Gray Card. The first aspect of Southern Life that throws newcomers is our language. Like many other foreign countries, we have a great many different dialects according to the area or community in which you’re living. There are dialects such as Coastal Southern, Cajun, Other Banks, Piedmont, Southern Highland, Gullah, Black Ankle and Staley. Even within the Piedmont you have different versions of Southern being spoken. Much of our language has disappeared over the last half century and there are now pockets in the South where people actually pronounce “g’s” on the end of words. I will never forget the day Jamie pronounced “ring” as “ringuh”. We had to quickly break her of the habit and were able to get her counseling. I’ve always thought English would be simpler if everyone spoke Southern. You wouldn’t need all 26 letters of the alphabet, that’s for sure. When son-in-law Lino first came to North Carolina from (I ashamed to admit this) New York City, he thought people were pranking him with their Southern accents. Now he can converse in two languages and can talk to people both in New Jersey and Savannah. Grandpa spoke a version of Southern Highland and had sort of a nasally drawl. His favorite expression was “Never seed to beat” which I always took to mean, “I say, old chap, I’ve never seen anything like this.” Hanging around grandpa’s a right smart, which means “a lot”, I quickly learned this dialect. This presented a language problem when our family went on an rare expedition to a restaurant and I looked at the menu. I ordered a hamburger steak, but it came with vegetables. I didn’t see any “termaters”, “okrie” or “taters” so I just ordered slaw. Since it’s widely known that you can’t survive on slaw alone, I managed to learn to speak better soon after that. Basically, if I could explain our language to newcomers, I would say that we don’t use any letters we don’t think we need. And, if we think we should use more letters in a word, we have the option. We don’t like one syllable words and, to my knowledge, don’t have any in the Southern language. Actually, we can turn some normally one-syllable English words into three syllable Southern words. We are flexible. We can shorten words or we can lengthen them according to our needs. A “tower” can become a “tire”, a “wrench” is a “ranch” and “power” becomes “par”. “Bard” is borrowed, as in “I bard his ranch” and “hard” is “hired.” We like to run words together. In parts of the North Carolina mountains, “whatchunsdoin?” is “what are you’uns doing?” By the way, like other parts of the country, we don’t like to be confused with the fact that “you” can be singular or plural. So we use “y’all”. In recent years, it has become legal in the South to use “you all”. This is no different from the word “youse” which is often found in New Jersey. Here in Randolph County we might ask “Jeetyet?” which, of course, means “Did you eat yet?” If you have a “far” you probably want to call the “far truck”. “Hominy” means “how many”. “Emersum” is “them are some”, “biggerns” are “big ones”, “arsh taters” are “Irish potatoes”. If grandpa is digging arsh taters he might note that “Emersum biggerns.” “Wongo” is “do you want to go” which makes more sense and uses less breath. The same goes for “juicy” which means “did you see”, “mona” (I’m gonna) and “bagel” for big ole. In upcoming columns, I’ll talk about Southern food, religion and how to understand directions in the South. Even though you may have a GPS, you still have to know which oak tree to turn at. And one more thing about Southern language. If they ever make English mandatory in the USA, we are in big, big trouble.

More Donations to the Patterson Cottage: Daniel Boone Comes Home The Patterson Cottage Museum has recently received more interesting donations this past month: one item that has been missing for 69 years, others from one of Liberty’s leading families and another treasure from Jack Garner. Daniel Boone Last week, Daniel Boone came home to Liberty. Actually, he never really left. In 1929, J. Hampton Rich visited Liberty promoting good roads and Daniel Boone. School children in Siler City, Staley, Liberty and Julian brought pennies and dimes to school to help erect arrowhead shaped monuments in their town in honor of Boone. Rich provided the heavy, cast iron markers depicting Boone, his rifle and dog, to go in the center of the monuments. The markers were said to contain metal from the Battleship Maine, which was sunk in the Havana harbor in 1898. The late Vernon Langley of Staley, 16 at the time, helped build Staley and Liberty’s monuments. Many people thought Hampton Rich, who billed himself as the Director of the Daniel Boone Trail Highway, to be a flim-flam man because it was clear that Boone never set foot in some of the locales in which he erected markers. Vernon Langley, however, said it was obvious that Rich was putting up monuments as a memorial to Boone, not to mark his travels. Of the four markers Rich helped place along US 421, only Staley’s exists today. Siler City’s and Julian’s disappeared years ago. Liberty’s marker, which stood across from what is now Garrett’s Florist, was knocked down accidentally by a car occupied by brothers Charlie and Jim Davis in 1948. From that point until just recently, the cast iron marker of Boone disappeared. A few people knew that a local resident had salvaged the marker and placed it under his house. Later he traded it to another local man for a small mixer. But for 69 years its whereabouts remained a mystery and the monument mostly forgotten by Liberty’s citizens.   That is until last week when someone anonymously donated the missing mystery marker to the Patterson Cottage Museum. “I think it belongs to the town,” the person said. E. Gary Marshall of Dugspur, VA, has spent over twenty years researching the Daniel Boone markers and Hampton Rich, the man who traveled the nation promoting them and Boone. He was “ecstatic” to hear the marker had turned up. According to Marshall, there are only 55 such markers available for public view out of 358 erected by Rich. Liberty’s, having been stored away for so many years, is by and far the most pristine. Marshall has written “Rich Man: Daniel Boone” chronicling Rich’s endeavors to promote Boone and has donated two of his books to accompany the marker. Marshall says he discourages placing the marker outside in another monument because so many have been vandalized or stolen over the years, some ending up on EBay. The Patterson Cottage is temporarily displaying the marker in the Liberty Library with a photo from the 1930’s showing the monument. Readers may soon check out “Rich Man: Daniel Boone” to learn more about Hampton Rich’s markers. Charlie and Mary Martin Cindy Martin Lowe, daughter of Charlie and Mary Martin, has donated some memorabilia from her family to the museum. Mary and Charlie operated Martin’s Appliance downtown for years. Charlie was Liberty’s fire chief, Mary served many terms on Liberty’s Town Board. The items include a toy horse, Mary Martin’s 1948 bridal gown, high school diploma, Charlie’s World War II naval hat, photos and other memorabilia. The metal pedal horse was won by Charlie in December, 1951, at the Curtis Theater. Cindy says that even though Charlie was in his twenties, he was made to ride the horse across the theater stage. Jack Garner “Jack is getting to be our patron saint,” Patterson Cottage chairman Warren Dixon said. In addition to donating two muzzle loading rifles and, along with Gary Davis, an 1860 chest of drawers, Garner recently gave the museum a rare bronze Colonial spoon mold, used for making pewter spoons. “We appreciate all donations,” Dixon said, “big and small. We’re looking for anything representative of life in Liberty. Liberty is more than the town itself. We’re so close to the counties around us, Chatham, Alamance and Guilford, that it’s hard to separate us. We appreciate everyone who has donated items to us and intend to preserve them so that future generations can enjoy and appreciate them.” Story By Warren Dixon

Historical Shows  William Hardy’s, The Sword of Peace is a dramatic portrayal of the American Revolution.  It enlightens the audience about the struggles the peaceful Quakers must face in a time of war.  General Nathanael Greene, 2nd in command under General George Washington, is about to face Lord Cornwallis, Commander of the British Forces in America, at the battle of Guilford Courthouse.  Simon Dixon, a Quaker miller is faced with an important decision like his neighbors, take up arms and fight or remain true to his faith.  Simon and other historical characters reveal their heart-torn decisions as you witness this exciting, action packed dramatic tribute to the Quakers.  Performances: July 6, 7, 8, 20, 22, 28 Aug. 4, 11, 17, 19.    Mark Sumner’s,  Pathway to Freedom  is an exciting account of the struggles and heroism of the 1840’s and 1850’s along the “Underground Railroad” from North Carolina to Indiana.  Both individuals and some organized religions fought slavery in the legislature and on the farms, while some, like Levi and Katie Coffin of Guilford County led volunteers and freed slaves in clandestine efforts to help escaping slaves to freedom.  The play centers on George Vestal, son of a slave-owning family, and how and why he becomes a worker for the “Underground Railroad”.  Events trace the actions of slave families in their hope of gaining freedom and dignity.  It was a time in the life of the country when man levels of opinion conflicted with economic pressure.  The rich music in the play is based on the music of the period and enriches the emotion that flow during the play.  A story of conflict of action, support human dignity, and it urges us to work for what ought to be.  It is a play about family courage.  It helps to explain our past to better our futures.  Performances: July 13, 14, 15, 21, 27, 29 Aug. 3, 5, 10, 12, 18.

Children’s Shows The Emperor’s New Clothes Is a delightful, retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen classic tale. A vain and childish Emperor is duped by two schemers who convince him they can make him a unique suit of clothes that is not only beautiful, but also magical - only those who are honest can see it. The Emperor is willing to risk everything he owns for these new clothes. Will the con men get caught? Will the Emperor find an honest person to help him? Join us as the Emperor gets his new suit of clothes Perfomances: July 20, 29, August 2, 12, 16.   The Beauty and the Beast Henry Beaumont, banished from the village, after a run-in with haughty Prince Phillip, and trying unsuccessfully to eke out a living as a farmer, mistakenly wanders into the garden of the Beast. The Beast promises to spare Henry’s life, but Henry must give up the one thing that he loves most – his daughter, Belinda. This is not the Disney version and it is not a “tale as old as time”, but it is a timeless tale that will delight young and old alike Performances: July 22, 26 August 5, 9, 19 Alternating Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Wednesdays at 7:30 pm & Saturdays at 10 am. $10.00 for adults and $8.00 for children.  A  Character Dinner  is also available!  Have dinner or lunch (depending on show time) and have a personal visit from the characters to talk with the children!
