Gooseberry Jam The music is best described as Rock n Roll, tho it may be better termed as Roots Rock. Sometimes it comes with with an acoustic edge, sometimes it leans towards Americana, and sometimes it's just plain out in your face! It depends on the night, & the mood. The music takes the band for a ride, and the band invites you to come along! For a most excellent Gooseberry Jam, you can start with this simple recipe... First, take Sean Cox on drums & vocals, along with Randy Wagoner on bass guitar...mix well & pour, to form the solid base that this recipe will require.

Next, add Doyle Hinkle on lead guitar & vocals, & mix until well blended. Now add a little more volume to that guitar, and let the mix rise! 
 Lastly, we'll add some words from singer/ songwriter, Darrell Craig on lead vocals, along with rhythm guitar. 
 Now just mix well, let simmer, and ENJOY! 
 If you like true to the core music. Roots rock, Americana, I mean true grit rock n roll with a southern-fried taste of soul, then we hope you'll come out sometime and get yourself a taste of Gooseberry Jam!

Jerry and Aprille Miller, John Lankford, and Keith Slusher, all from Liberty are accomplished musicians with a love of good classic rock and blues music. They like to play a variety of music that challenges their abilities and gives them their distinct sound.

In 2007 they released their first self-titled EP, Fire For Effect with Playing to Win, Smile Pretty Angel, and Bulletproof. In 2009, all songs were self-published (ASCAP) and re-released. Current projects include live performances as a solo/acoustic act, writing and recording music.

Love Is In The Air “Love is in the air; Everywhere I look around; Love is in the air; Every sight and every sound” This was a very popular 1970’s song that was performed by John Paul Young. This is the time of year that I notice Mother Nature doing her best to propagate many species. Spring is the time of renewal and reproduction. I have always thought this song more than any other seems to symbolize this pursuit. When I was younger, my upstairs bedroom window faced toward a pond. Without the benefit of air conditioning, there was no way to sleep with the window closed because of the heat. I learned to associate spring and warm weather with a symphony of frog songs. Even the hum of the box fan was not enough to drown out the songs of love (or in this case amphibian attraction, territory and reproduction) arising from this aquatic night club. The sound of all the frogs was almost deafening. Spring is also when many domestic animals start their estrous (reproductive) cycle. There is some terminology that needs to be clarified. The estrous cycle begins with proestrus in which female animals show external signs such as swelling (or bleeding in the case of the dog). Scents associated with the cycle called pheromones spread out on the air and allows males to be gather, fight and establish breeding rights. Estrus (“Standing heat”) follows soon afterwards. This is the only time that the female will stand still to be bred. It can be confusing for us humans to know when an animal is “in heat.” Because of pheromones, a male animal knows how to find a female that is either in heat or coming into heat in a locale. These subtle odors released by animals (including humans) help to attract a mate. If you have ever seen an animal inhale with the upper lip pulled back and inhale quickly, you are watching the Flehmen response. They inhale to pull in scents including pheromones. This allows animals that may be at great distances apart to know If an animal is in heat and to help attract a potential mate. Dogs typically cycle twice yearly. Cats will cycle every 21 days during this time of year until they are bred or have driven their owners crazy and they are spayed. Cats will ovulate if they are bred. This induced or reflex ovulation almost guarantees that the animal will be pregnant if bred. Although it may seem like a good idea to put the cat outside because she is driving you crazy, you may be inadvertently assuring a fresh group of spring kittens. This brings me to Hank. Hank is a good dog. He is intact (not neutered) but he has always been obedient and basically a home body. Hank “ran off” earlier in the day with a group of dogs that were following a female. Hanks’ owner brought him in after he finally came home in the afternoon. The owner was put out with Hank because she had clearly told him to “come.” She could not understand why he stopped, looked at her and then casually turned and went with the other dogs. I tried to explain that this decision was beyond his control. Between the hormones and the pheromones, there was little that he could do but attempt to answer nature’s call. This was little comfort to her as I treated the many cuts on his head and confirmed that the bleeding from his mouth was from broken front teeth. Like so many bar room brawls, Hank had to have follow up dental work to remove the roots of the four broken front teeth he had sustained during his foray. All we could surmise was there must have been a Boxer in the group. So Love is in the air. It makes animals do things that may be beyond their control. Rather than getting angry, have your dog or cat spayed or neutered. It is important to control the pet population and also helps to prevent needless injuries and fights. Besides, it is usually much cheaper than dental work.

Patterson Cottage Announces Summer Openings The Patterson Cottage Museum will open from 11-2:00 on the third Saturday of each month starting May 19 and going through October and other times on request. The Patterson Cottage is Liberty’s oldest remaining residence, built in 1884 by Dr. A.J. Patterson for his aging parents George and Sophia Patterson. George was a Civil War veteran; Sophia was the first person buried in Fairview Cemetery. The cottage first stood near where the old post office building is now across from the present-day Reitzel Center. Later it was moved around the corner to the lot where the B.P. Station now stands on East Swannanoa. When the Pantry purchased the lot in the mid-1970’s, the house was scheduled to be moved to a farm and used for storage until concerned Liberty citizens discovered its age and history. A group, led by Bobbie Haynes and many others, raised money to have the house moved and got permission from the Liberty Town Council to place the cottage on Town property. At the time, Councilman Johnny Younts made a motion which passed unanimously that the Town would have no expense from the cottage and that it would operate on donations only. Townspeople donated items from Liberty’s past and turned the cottage into a museum and now it is packed with artifacts from the town’s heritage. Recent donations are a great spinning wheel from Wade Shelton, Jamestown rifles from Jack Garner and the lifetime Indian artifact collection of the late Frank York, donated by his wife Harris Wylie York. The collection includes Hardaway points, 9,000 to 10,000 years old, all the way to Randolph points which were made as late as 1715. All artifacts were found by York in local Randolph County fields. The Patterson Cottage Committee hopes the public will take advantage of the openings this summer and visit the town’s oldest remaining residence. Anyone requesting a tour can call Warren Dixon at 336-622-2731. The Patterson Cottage particularly welcomes school age children.

Liberty Elementary Service Club Plants Community Garden The Liberty Elementary Service Learning Club has planted a community garden for the second year in a row. The Service Club is a group of Liberty Elementary students dedicated to learning leadership and serving their community. Past projects the club has participated in include clothing drives and raising money for hurricane victims. Last year the group planted vegetables in two beds at the school to be used by the community. This year, with support from Liberty’s 100-Man Project, the Service Club was able to more than double their garden. Teachers Jennifer Hernandez and Shannon Staley serve as advisors for the club. They, the students and students’ families, recently built the beds and planted vegetables. The 100-Man Project supplied most of the lumber, top soil and seed for the gardens. The gardens are behind what many will remember as the old Ag Building, now the Fifth Grade building, near the parking lot on E. Highfill St. Vegetables from the garden will be donated to the Liberty Association of Churches.

“Pastor’s Porch” with Pastor Don Hey everybody! Pastor Don sitting on the front porch again. Enjoying the beautiful weather that God has blessed us with lately. Sun is shining and its finally starting to warm up! Thank you Jesus! Today we are talking about some of the thoughts, feelings, and emotions we experience as human beings, and how sometimes those things can be misunderstood and cause us problems. What I mean by that is to say sometimes we experience thoughts, feelings, emotions that we think are wrong and we shouldn’t be having. I use myself as an example and anger being the focus. I spent most of my life dealing with anger problems. I would get so angry, about so many things, and I would think to myself this is not normal, I shouldn’t be getting angry like this. I thought there was something wrong with me. I thought that I was damaged and would have to live with this curse forever. Believing in that gave me a victim mentally. Because of that I felt defeated and gave into my anger which caused a lot of destruction in my life. I figured why fight it. I am messed up and this is just who I am. That was before God got a hold of me and helped me to have a proper perspective of my anger issues. The first thing that He helped me realize was that it was ok to get angry. What I was getting angry about and what I did while I was angry was a different story. In His word it says, “If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, and do not stay angry all day.” Ephesians 4:26. Basically this says its ok to get angry, but dont make bad choices and decisions while you are angry, and don’t stay angry, get it under control! I am so thankful that God shared these truth with me. It literally helped me to get my anger in check and so many others thoughts, feeling, emotions I was struggling with. To know that I had problems that were normal problems for a human being and that God could help me with them was a wonderful revelation. He shared with me 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power, love, and self-control.” God gave us His son so our sins could be forgiven and we could have eternal life, but He also gave us His son so that the same spirit that was in Him can also be in us. The Holy Spirt! With His spirit all that we need to understand can be understood, and with His spirit all things are possible! All this is possible when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Best decision I ever made. Praying that you have too or you are heading in that direction! Love you and God bless, Pastor Don
