Support Local I try to keep this at the forefront of our thinking. We have to support our local business and local community. Just image if this was your business and livelihood, would you not want people to support your business. So what three independently own businesses would you not want to disappear? Stop in , say hello and make a purchase. Your purchases is what keeps these businesses around. The number of people to start this movement to support local only takes one… why not let it be you. So local community, lets support local. Buy Local, Visit Local, Be Local. See you at a local business soon.

Liberty Association Of Churches Hosts Liberty Town Easter Egg Hunt It so exciting to see the Town Egg Hunt to be run and organized by the Liberty Association of Churches. Just another example of the One Church movement. For we serve One God and He wants all our churches to part of the One Big Church. This years event will be held at Liberty Elem School on the football field on Saturday March 28 from 10am to Noon. There is so much magic in the air. As you can see from the ad below this will be a magical Easter Egg Hunt. With over 5,000 eggs to games, food and music there is something for everyone. Flip to page two for more great details.

(continued) At 10am the event kicks off with local churches and community providing great venue of activity. From a rock climbing wall (a 28 feet of pure fun.) , games and area attractions. Invites are out for some fire truck to police cars to see and maybe even a race car. Lots of goodies to snack on from corn dogs, drinks, cotton candy, popcorn and candy. At 10:30am you can see “Fish The Magish” and the easter story. Fish The Magish is a Christian Comedian and Illusionist. He will be connecting the kids and adults to the love of Christ. There will be some great music by a local favorite, Keith Bartell. At 11:30am the Easter Egg Hunt of over 5,000 eggs will begin. They will be divided up in Preschool to Kindergarten, 1st to 3rd graders, and 4th to 6th graders each having their own section. Dividing these kids up keeps everyone safe so no bigger kids run over the smaller ones. They will have plenty of volunteers on hand plus 2 off duty police officers. This is just another great function the Liberty Association Of Churches provides in our area. I can not wait to see all the churches and community out on the field that Saturday.

March 2015 RCC’s first-ever ‘Small Town’ Documentary Gallery

Randolph Community College Department of Photographic Technology, in collaboration with the town of Liberty, will present a gallery showing featuring the work of a week-long documentary project entitled Small Town, Liberty. Each year, the graduating class will focus on one small town in North Carolina to document for an entire week. In 2015, the class visited Liberty, North Carolina, during the week of February 16 through February 22. The first ever Small Town, North Carolina documentary is a collaborative photography project that includes work from thirteen RCC photojournalism students as they spent seven days exploring the town of Liberty and the people who call it home. “The students have taken on the challenge of documenting a week of Liberty by researching stories and connecting with a family, business, organization, or small community and creating a more in-depth story,” says instructor Abbi O’Leary. The gallery show opening will be held on Wednesday, March 4, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Liberty Public Library, located at 239 South Fayetteville Street. The event is free and open to the public. Small Town, Liberty will be on display through the end of May on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (9:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m.), Tuesdays (9:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m.), and on Saturdays (9:00 a.m. through 1:00 p.m.). “The gallery display in the local library will highlight the photographs that capture the heart of Liberty and work together in telling its story,” says O’Leary. “The RCC photojournalism students have poured their hearts and efforts into sharing your story—the story of Liberty, NC, so please enjoy, share, and participate in the community collaboration.” RCC Photojournalism students involved in this project (listed with their hometowns) include the following: Sarah Martin - Asheboro Cate Gordon – Asheboro & Stoneville Erik Buxton – Asheboro Sarah Gillie – Eden Erin Mizelle – Trinity Tim Rossland – Greensboro Caleb Smallwood – Greensboro Zoe Zielinski – Kernersville Josh Komer – Charlotte Carol Anne Simchik - Winston–Salem Seth Combs - Winston–Salem Alex Tricoli – Summerfield Sarah Whelan – Waxhaw

A Great Man Retires From Liberty School I had the pleasure of sitting down with a man that has been a landmark in Liberty School. That would be none other than, Mr Melvin Parks, which has been the head building and grounds manager for Liberty Elem School for the past 14 years. I have had the pleasure of seeing this man in action over this time. From when my children attending school to me volunteering at the school, you always got to walk into a nice clean school from inside to out with everything always being in top condition. I have seen this man clean trash cans to moving the yard. I remember volunteering at the school and needing something and they say see Mr Parks. Mr Parks would go out of his way to make it happen and most of all , I remember his humble spirit and sweet smile. Well they do not make men like this any more. So lets get to know this man and see what created a man so unique as him. Melvin Parks has been at the school for 14 years but prior to that he was the General Manager at Klaussners in Asheboro over transportation maintenance, environmental and security. He fill that role for 32 years and only left due to downsizing. He will be enjoying some free time with his beautiful bride, Sadie Parks. Sadie is also retired from Randolph Co School System from Ramseur ES from being a teacher assistant. Both of these great folks has impacting many kids lives. Melvin’s oldest son lives out in Colorado now, due to job relocation, and travels all over as a Senior Engineer for Gates Rubber. I asked Mr Parks, what do they do and he says the pen I am holding to the plastics on my car all comes from this business. His middle son lost the battle to Lupus back in 1986. His youngest son still lives close by in Greensboro and is General Manager in the food industry. Looks like Mr Parks did a great job as a father installing things in his kids life's. He continued that legacy at Liberty school with the school kids. I asked Mr Parks what he would miss the most. He stated,” It would have to be the students. I love talking and seeing them each day. I make a point to encourage them as I speak to them as we pass in the halls or our paths cross. I try to give them words of encouragement. It is so nice to be out and have a kids come up to me and call my name.” He continued to say, “the staff will be the next missed part of the school. People do not realize it, but the staff is like a family. We all spend so much time together and share our lives together you build relationships. So the staff is like another type of family.” I asked Mr Parks what his days are like. He gave a big old smile, “well it starts at 4:20am when the alarm sounds and by 6am I’m here at the school to get the heat/ac and lights going. Then its the daily steps to keep the school running.” Wow, the behind the scenes we do not think of. He added, “My future days will be to work on my Honey To Do List and around my home and out buildings.” Looks like he is going to stay busy. After talking to Mr Parks, I realize my kids and all the kids that came through was blessed to have a man that planted seeds in kids lives by means of a kind word ,”keep good grades” to the work ethic he set as an example for kids to live by with his role model. As you can see I got to see Mr Parks on his last day of work, and he was out shoveling snow off the walks.

Keith Liberty_News_4x4_03.01.15.qxp_Layout 1 2/16/15 9:05 AM Page 1 Slusher and Lynn Routh has set a great example of how to run a business. As you travel by their establishment you see the numerous cars parked being worked on. Our office uses them for our fleet trucks and they keep them in shape and work around our schedule. They are great supporters of the local community also by donating to several causes, such as local fireworks to parade. I have heard numerous stories of how they work with their customers and provide a great service in the process. One thing that shines out me is their devote love of God. 232 N.

A Blessing Of A Lady To Meet I had the hardest time coming up with the heading of this story and then I realized what the experience was should be the title. For after meeting Ruby Getter Golden, I realized I was blessed to have got to meet such a great lady. Ruby was born on August 12 in 1907, which makes her a young age of 107 (however she was a spry as a 80 year old). Ruby shared with me she was born in Clifton GA to Henry and Georgia Getter and was one of eleven children. She grew up in the profession of a share cropper and continued into her adult life. Later Ruby married Mr Robert Golden from Danberrry VA and they settled in at Pleasant Garden NC and she had nine wonderful children. Over the years Ruby has worked for the school systems and finally retiring after 45 years in that job. She share cropped on many farms in the triad area. She recalled working for the Millers, Wades, Smiths, Fields, Pattersons and many more, she chuckled at not being able to remember more, but at 107 she has a great memory. Better than I can say for myself. She also shared with me that she cared and took care of children and family member in also of these names she just mentioned. I was told it was no uncommon for Ruby to carry food to someone and make sure they has what they needed. Beulah Church on Beulah Church Rd (which is just up from her house in Liberty) benefited from her devotion to the church family and the Lord. Her constant unwavering FAITH she has brought many to know and trust the Lord God and Jesus Christ His Son. She taught them on how serving God can bless your life. Today she resides in the home place she raised five generations of children with her daughter Hazel Golden (78 years young) and Charlotte Golden her daughter in law from marriage to her son Roy. Charlotte has never left Ruby or Hazel. For you see this is a blessing , you see she has been a constant care giver 24 hours a day without complaint. When anything goes wrong or some people talk bad about Charlotte, they just say, “We need to keep praying for them and let GOD touch there heart that they see there wrong.” Wow, what an example. I was blessed to receive the phone call from Tonya Nesbit to consider a story on this great lady, Ruby. While speaking to Tonya she said, “Over the years since late 80’s I have been privileged to also be encouraged by the strength Ruby’s Faith can have on peoples life. Her example of a Servant Spirit has truly taught both Charlotte and myself the blessing of serving the Lord.” She also told me on Aug 27, 2010 that Beulah Church honored Ruby with Award Of Ministry. Today Ruby has 2 sisters still living, Gressy Brown who just turned 100 and Eurie Ann Davis who is 95. She also has three children Hazel Golden of Liberty, Ruth Coble of Staley and Annett Smith of Greensboro. Lets not forget her faithful and devoted daughter in law, Charlotte P Golden and I will through one in, her adopted daughter Tonya Nesbitt. After visiting with these awesome ladies, I came away rejuvenated and ready to take on the world. With the old saying you want people to see Christ more than they see you, well that is what happened when I met Ruby Getter Golden. Her love for the Lord shined Greatly. I told her thank you for letting me share her story and she said, “It is not my story it is my Saviors story, for I am just a tool blessed to be used by Him to help on this place called earth before I go to my real Home with Him.” I hope this story helps all of us step up to the plate to live a better life and live more for God than we do ourselves.

Stroll Down Memory Lane “t's "Kidd's" today and has been for decades, and it's still great for food and "news". We "old timers" will always remember it as "Muzzie's". They had the best sliced pork sandwiches anywhere...but it was all good. Lots of us would get hungry after shooting a few games at "Big Un's" and "Little Un's" and step over there for some wonderful food., “ James Brower added to his post in FaceBook.Kevin Bowman, “love to here all the locals history and memories on this place... stories are priceless.” Gayle Day Yeager,” I guess I'm an old timer too - I still call it Muzzie's and the hot dog cheese dog combos are the best bar NONE.” Roy Deaton ,”Used to love those sliced pork sandwiches too,I remember Daddy getting a whole container of it and bringing it home!” Judy York ,”Only place I knew of to have " flat hotdogs ". Because the bread was heated with the presser. Lol. The STORIES that were told there... If the walls could only talk..”. Debby Young,” If those walls started talking we would all be in trouble!!” Kimberly O'Hara ,”I remember it as Muzzies and I loved their hamburgers.”Robie George Gray,” I have eaten many roast pork sandwiches with lettuce and tomato.”James Brower,” Robie, that's just the way I liked them too. A lot of times, we'd get "take outs" on those, and take them back to Reuben's and Rufus's and enjoy them there. I really liked your uncles. They were always good to me.” Robie George Gray ,”That is right; My uncles, Rufus and Ruben's poolroom was next door; Lester and Freddy's hang out and also mine.” Arthur and Nancy Coble ,”not to mention their toasted hot dogs”. Chris Cheek Jobe ,”Eat hot dogs as often as I can when in Liberty. Love’em.” Arthur and Nancy Coble ,”I don't know of another place that toasted the bun?” James Brower ,”Y’all are making me want to get one now! LOL.” Arthur and Nancy Coble,” but they don't toast them any more. Muz would put the dog in the bun and toast the fire out of it and when you ordered one he would put the makings on it , making my mouth do something.” Robie George Gray ,”James Brower; You brought back so many memories; After a football game, Wayne Fogelman, would go in Muzzies and buy a bucket of chicken wings and share with us. That is another tuff dude with a heart of gold.” Sandra Griffin ,”I remember working at Dependable Hosiery (if anyone remembers that mill) and we would send someone to Muzzles for food. The wonderful hot dogs and cheeseburgers. Actually Becky Kidd worked at the hosiery mill back then when Buster took over Muzzies.” Bill Bowman ,”I still stop in for a couple of Cheese Dogs when I come through. Can't get them like that any where else.” Judith Griffith Rogers ,”It still has great food, always crowded when we go-- he keeps the prices down too!!” Randy Smith,” Ok I really felt bad for all of you. So I went and ate a roast pork lettuce and tomato today for lunch it was soooooooo good!!!!!! Man the things you have to do for this group MMMMMMmmmm Good!!!!!” Robie George Gray ,”Thanks Randy Smith!!” Debby Young,” You're such a good friend Randy Smith!!” John Cummings ,”The Chili Cheeseburgers were my favorite.” Beth Burns ,”Combo dogs omg I want one!!!!” Don Herndon ,”Anybody remember "Beef Allred"? He could be surly but always fun to watch. Muzzies did not serve milkshakes or french fries in the old days. If you wanted to really get "Beef" en fuego, drive up for curb service and order milkshakes and fries. I heard him say, "I'm gonna start kicking out windshields tonight!" He also was NOT a fan of long hair, LOL” M.g. Mary Glynn Roberson , “Nothing better than a Muzzie’s / Kidds hotdog-cheese dog combo or a cheeseburger all the way, The take out bag that would be greasy by the time you got home. I need to make a road trip.”Don Herndon ,”My phone # has the same digits(in different order)as the last four numbers of Kidd's. I get a call a month on average for Kidd's, often at a very bad time of day. Today the phone rang at 5:23am with the hapless caller wanting to order. I was nice this time, but in my younger days, I would imitate Buster and take the order. LOL I always wonder what happens when they drive up to get the food. I don't do that anymore.”James Brower ,”Don, "Beef" always wore that white waiter's top, or whatever you call it. I agree. He was not the "eternal optimist", but in a way, he was funny. He was bad to mumble. LOL. My dad said he taught "Beef" in school over at Grays Chapel. Harris York,” My daughter loved their hotdogs. Just no slaw.”Visit the Liberty High School Bulldogs Group on Facebook.

March 2015 Patterson Cottage Museum Corner

-Brenda Heindl, Committee Member Perhaps a unique feature of many of the objects in the collection at the Patterson Cottage is that they were donated with small stories about their history and who owned them. One such piece is a small, bone-handled fork with two tines. On a card is typed, “Belonged to the great aunt (her grandfather’s sister) of the donor, Mrs. Gordon (Lystra Frazier) Congleton.” The donor was Belle Curtis. Anne Lystra Frazier was born in 1893 in Randolph County and passed away in 1992. Forks have been in use at the table since the 1400s and 1500s in the West (and even earlier in some parts of the world), but it was not until the 1700s that they were more commonly used. The typed card states that the fork is over 200 years old, but it is hard to verify the age since two-tined forks were used through the 1800s. The four-tine forks that we are familiar with came into use in the early 1800s. Come by when we reopen in May to see this great object!

Volume 12 Issue 3 Fight Cancer with Fight Cancer with Your Fork – 8 Important Truths Healthy Eating doesn’t have to be complicated and it can even be fun. Key to making healthy eating fun, however, is knowing what to eat and how to prepare it. Karen Pfohl, RD, LDN, with Randolph Cancer Center, is holding a community seminar called Fight Cancer with Your Fork on Thursday, March 19, from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. at Randolph Hospital. It’s designed to address these important issues. Specifically, Pfohl will center on eight truths that can help lower your risk of getting cancer. Included in the seminar are a brief cooking demonstration and a free tasting of all the prepared food. Fight Cancer with Your Fork is a free event, open to the community, and is one of several community events offered throughout the year. Please register by calling (336) 633-7788.

Simple Steps to Seed Starting Success

By Melinda Myers Get a jump on the growing season by starting your favorite or hard to find plants indoors from seeds. Starting hard to find plants, like many of the heirloom or newly introduced varieties, from seed may be the only way you will be able to add these to your garden. Plus, you’ll be extending the growing season and bringing the fun of gardening indoors. All you need is a little space, a few supplies and of course seeds to get started. Check the back of your seed packets for planting directions. Most recommend when and how to start seeds indoors as well as any other special care the seedlings will need. Purchase, recycle or make your own containers from newspaper. Sanitize used pots by dipping them in a one part bleach and nine parts water solution and then rinsing them with clean water. Fill the containers with a sterile well-drained potting mix or seed starting mix. Once the containers are filled, For most seeds, plant them twice their diameter deep and gently water. Continue to water often enough to keep the soil slightly moist. Extend the time between watering and increase your seed starting success by covering the container with plastic. Or purchase a seed starting kit, like the self-watering Growease seed starter kits. Move your containers to a sunny window as soon as the seedlings emerge from the soil. Turn plants often to encourage even growth. Or increase your success by growing seedlings under artificial lights. You can make your own light system or purchase tabletop, shelf units or easy to assemble light systems, like Stack-N-Grow ( Keep the lights four to six inches above the top of the seedlings for best results. As the seedlings grow, be sure to maintain this distance by simply raising the lights or lowering the containers. Move overcrowded seedlings to larger containers once they have two sets of true leaves. The first leaves that appear are rather indistinct and are called seed leaves. The next set of leaves look more like the mature plant’s leaves and are called true leaves. Once the next set of true leaves forms, it is time to transplant overcrowded seedlings. Use a fork or spoon to carefully lift out the seedling. Clusters of seedlings can be dug and carefully teased apart before planting in individual pots. Be careful not to pinch and damage the young tender stems. Place seedlings in their own clean container filled with moist sterile potting mix. Plant the young plants at the same depth they were growing in the original container. Thin seedlings started in individual containers as needed. If you planted several seeds in each small container remove all but the healthiest one. Prune the weaker seedlings to ground level, so the remaining seedling can develop into a strong transplant for the garden. Continue to grow your plants in a sunny window or under artificial lights and water thoroughly and often enough to keep the soil slightly moist. Soon it will be time to move your homegrown transplants into the garden.
