COMMUNITY TEEN GATHERING PICKS UP STEAM ON SATURDAYS ! “There’s just nothing to do in Liberty!”; a phrase many of us have heard come from the mouths of local teens who are old enough to want to get out of the house but not quite old enough to be out on their own. Now though, that phrase is not as quite true any more thanks to the launch of something called FUSION. You may have seen it advertised in this paper or around town, but what exactly is it? And why should we care? FUSION is a safe, diverse, exciting gathering of middle and high school students meeting every Saturday night from 6-8pm at the Liberty Elementary School Gym. There’s a mix of free play, team games, and music for the first hour. “We want them to be active and work together.” one chaperone said. “It’s good for them to get moving.” After that, they retreat to another room for a bite to eat and a devotional time of prayer and conversation about the issues they face each day. “Teens have so much to navigate, we want them to be able to talk through these things and get a godly perspective on them.” said Ben Suggs, one of Fusion’s organizers, “They need to know that we’re going to be there for them.”

Ph 336-795-0054 / Cell 336-404-9791

So far, the gathering has grown from a handful to around 30-40 since it launched at the first of October. Edwards Grove MBC, Mt. Pleasant Baptist, and Freedom Family Church have all been participating as well as church groups from outside of Liberty and teens with no church affiliation at all. Fusion is always free or charge, has approved adults patrolling for safety, and requires teens to check-in when they arrive to keep things secure. The goal of Fusion is to bring together teens from different backgrounds, churches, neighborhoods, races, etc. to foster healthy relationships with each other and with God. For example, in October, the teaching series “Squad Goals” helped them see how to seek out and have real friendships. November 14th they will host Siler City worship band “Live Out” for a night of music and drama instead of a Bible study. Find out more at or call 919-548-0350.

Another History Lesson From The Patterson Cottage                       The early 1900’s brought a contingent of entrepreneurs, businessmen, industrialists, educators, salesmen and dreamers to the small town of Liberty. It was all because the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley chose to build its rails through the town and place a depot at the crossroads, creating a wealth of opportunity for all those who had a desire to succeed. None of these had more desire or was more innovative than Dr. George Adam Foster.   George Foster was born in 1858 near Kimesville and was raised by his mother Nellie. He graduated from Oakdale High School at Rock Creek, married Margaret Whitesell in 1880 and in 1891, after studying at Baltimore Medical College, was granted his license to practice medicine. By this time he and Margaret had a seven-year-old daughter, Izona.   It’s not known where he practiced for the next twenty years, but on November 22, 1911, the Siler City “Grit” announced that G.A. Foster, M.D. of Liberty, specialist in diseases of the stomach and intestines, had opened an office and laboratory in Liberty. It was also reported that he had built a new brick office and brought a new microscope and fine set of instruments.             In the meantime, he had been a busy man. In 1900 he built a steam sawmill at “the old Patterson Mill”, which he had purchased. In 1903 he attended thirty days of lectures in Baltimore and more lectures in St. Louis a year later.    In 1907, after selling his sawmill, he and his friend William Hanner were reported “to have bought quite a slice of stock in Liberty Chair Factory”. The same year, Foster was listed as one of the directors of Liberty Telephone.                       Two years later he and friends took an extended trip through Canada, visiting the Alaska-Yukon exposition, and continuing to Seattle, down the Pacific coast and then on to Colorado Springs and Pike’s Peak.  After returning to Liberty, he and William Hanner and others incorporated the Hosiery Manufacturing Company of Liberty to do a general knitting business. Another newspaper called it the Lee Hosiery Manufacturing Company of Liberty and noted that it had $50,000 in capital.                       In 1911, the year he built his office in Liberty, he took a special course on stomach aliments at the American Hospital in Philadelphia. As a side note, the Greensboro “Patriot” reported that on April 6 of that year, Dr. Foster purchased a new automobile.             The late Francine Swaim said that the Fosters lived in a one story house on the hill where the Liberty Post Office is now located. His office and “hospital” were located across the street from their home.             For the next fourteen years, George Foster seemed to have an interest in every business in Liberty. He became the president of the Eagle Manufacturing Company, maker of “new and very attractive” washboards, in 1912. The next year he bought the Mt. Pleasant Cotton Mill for $7,750. He opened offices in Siler City and Graham and found time to serve as state representative from Randolph County in 1915.                       He and two investors also opened the White Mfg. Company of Kimesville in 1915, for a general cotton milling business. They probably purchased or revamped the old Kimesville Mfg. Company which wove gingham and check-plaids and had 21 company-owned houses on the lake.             Dr. Foster immediately started advertising the recreational aspects of Kimesville Lake, posting in the Greensboro “Daily News” that “fishing is now good in Kimesville Mill pond….five dollars a year for hooking and picnic privileges”. Foster built cabins on the lake  and according to the “Daily-Times News” of Burlington, “fishing, boating, swimming and picnicking became a flourishing business in the village.”  The family still operated “the Kimesville resort” at least into the 1950’s with a bath house and drink stand, long after the cotton mill closed in 1919.                       Foster was elected to the board of directors of Liberty Bank, named as president of Rowe Parlor Furniture Co. of High Point, was a stock holder in Liberty Broom Works and Liberty Picker Stick and Novelty Company, in addition to being in the real estate business with James Filmore Pickett.  One wonders when he had time for patients, but evidently he did, being dispatched to Wilmington to help treat victims of the Spanish influenza in 1918. On his return to Liberty he got back to business, founding Foster Furniture Mfg. Company, located on Fayetteville Street. On May 1, 1920, his wife Margaret passed away. Francine Swaim said at this time Dr. Foster moved across town to live with his daughter Izona, who had married dentist Dr. J.D. Gregg (later a mayor of Liberty).             Always looking for a business opportunity, Dr. Foster built a large frame building in the area of the parking lot for Dollar General and engaged in the manufacturing, bottling and selling of patent medicines. His most famous product was called Dr. Foster’s Liver Kick and was advertised at least through World War II, twenty years after Foster’s death. It was said ”to relieve distress from nervous indigestion, muscular pains and similar harassing symptoms”. Francine Swaim wrote that workers who helped in the plant declared the tonic had high alcoholic content.             Dr. Foster passed away on October 22, 1925 and is buried at Fairview Cemetery. His legacy lives on in the street named for him, Foster Street, which runs by Fairview Cemetery.             The Patterson Cottage has several of Dr. Foster’s posters advertising his Liver Kick and the corporate seal of Foster Furniture Company, donated by Margaret Davis. We do not, however, have a Foster’s Liver Kick bottle. If you have one, please call Warren Dixon at 622-2731. *  *             **             **                 **                  **                  **                **                       The Patterson Cottage would like to thank everyone who made our annual Heritage Festival a success and to all of you who purchased raffle tickets to help support the cottage. We won’t be open officially the rest of the year, but if you’d like a personal or group tour, please call  Warren Dixon at the above number or Tom Meacham at 622-1998.

“Another Day In Paradise” All of us remember the special moments and people that have helped or inspired us along life’s journey. When Liberty Drug closed it doors in 2011, Liberty residents thought that they were losing one of those special people, Johnny King, the Drug store’s manager for many years. However, the Liberty Leader is proud to report, that after a two-year absence, Johnny is, “Back in Town” as a pharmacist at Liberty Family Pharmacy. “I remember the excitement of our customers when they learned Johnny would be joining our staff,” said Don Haslam, also a pharmacist at Liberty Drug. “Some of our customers have “been with” Johnny for 50 years as they like to put it. We had some customers cry with joy and some just smile and say, “another day in paradise”, Johnny’s personal motto, when I told them Johnny would be joining us. I didn’t know what they were talking about at first, but learned on Johnny’s first day when I asked how he was doing, and he replied with a big smile, “another day in paradise”. Johnny’s interest in Pharmacy started in High School while working the soda fountain at one of Edmonds Drug Stores. Working there, Johnny made his decision to enter Pharmacy School at the University of North Carolina after graduation from Bessemer High School, Greensboro. After graduating with a BS Pharmacy degree from Carolina in 1966, he came back to Greensboro to manager one of Edmonds Drug Stores. In 1970, Johnny entered into a partnership with Flynn Drug Store owner in Winston-Salem and worked there until he opened his own, King Southeast Drug in Forest Oaks Shopping Center, Greensboro, NC.  After long hours and days, he decided to sell and work part-time which he did for, Kinard Drug/Greensboro & Health Care Services, Liberty Drug Store, Stokesdale Family Pharmacy and now at Liberty Family Pharmacy. He still helps other pharmacies such as Asheboro Drug in Asheboro.

“When we learned about Best of Randolph Awards, we immediately thought of Johnny for the Best Pharmacist category. It was truly a very well received, community supported effort. It has been an honor working with another pharmacist with such experience and integrity; not just in pharmacy, but also with many life matters. We were so happy when Johnny won. He has been serving our area in a pharmacy for over 50 years (since high school), longer than I’ve been alive! That is such a great accomplishment and a testimony to Johnny’s dedication”, said Don. Johnny is married to Jean Murphy King, who is employed as a Realtor/Broker with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services and together have one son, Todd, who has followed in his father's footsteps with a PharmD degree from Campbell University. Todd is employed as a Senior Director of Clinical Services for Omnicare Pharmacy Services. He is married to Leanna Burris of Greensboro and they have 4 children.  Johnny enjoys and loves every minute of spending time with the grandchildren, watching their ballgames and many other activities. Liberty Family Pharmacy will be hosting a small dinner/award presentation in honor of Johnny. The date hasn’t yet been decided, but anyone wanting to participate, please call the store at 336-795-0052. They will take your name and number and let you know what date and time the event will be held.

Have You Seen Or Heard About New Group Call MOPS? The tag line says a lot, “Hey Mom Need A Break”. I inquired from Jennifer Hand that helps coordinate this great group what is it all about. She stated, “ I am so excited that you are interested in learning more about us. MOPS is all about meeting the needs of every mom from conception through Kindergarten whether you are a stay at home, working, teen, adoptive, special needs, single or married, MOPS is for you. MOPS is a place where moms can come to be encourage and supported by other moms who are in the very same season of life and best of all, to make some great friends. You do not have to be a church goer or a specific denomination to join us. “ In concluding our conversation Jennifer shared, “ I hope to see all these moms at our next meeting. November Meetings are : Thursday, November 12th, 6-8pm and Friday, November 20th, 10am-12pm. Also do not forget that there is childcare provided. We meet at Freedom Family Church at 510N Greensboro St, Liberty. If you have more questions you can call or text me at 919-548-2130. On Facebook look for group called “Liberty Mops”.

Liberty Elem School Back Pack Program

So lets learn a little bit more about this great program that needs a little helping hand. I contact Kim Martin that runs the program. She stated, “ We started the program in 2007.  The first year we had 21 children signed up. As of today, we have 57.  We do not have any type of screening.  Children are referred by teachers or other school staff.  All we need to get them started is a signed permission slip.  We try to use easy to open/prepare food that children like.  Our most expensive items are Chef Boyardee (or other name brand canned pasta), macaroni and cheese, and beanee weanees.   We put 12 kid friendly individually wrapped items in each backpack on Fridays.  That averages out to be $4.50 per child/$1000 per month (this is not including the food that is regularly donated)  ALL money for this program comes from donations by individuals, churches, businesses, and organizations in Liberty!!!  Isn't that wonderful!!!   There are different ways individuals, churches, businesses, or other organizations can participate w/ our program. **Monetary donations:  I am trying to get monthly sponsors.  In the past we have operated more on the occasional donation basis.  Although I appreciate all monetary donations, if I can get 20 people to pledge $50 or 40 people to pledge $25 per month, then we will be completely funded from month to month.  There is an account set up at Fidelity Bank and Wells Fargo so all donations are tax deductible.  Checks can be made out to Sandy Creek Backpack Program and mailed to: Sandy Creek Baptist Church  C/O Kim Martin 4765 Sandy Creek Church Road Liberty NC 27298   OR can dropped off at one of the banks or Liberty School. **Food donations:  We currently have some churches who regularly donate a specific item.  This helps reduce the per child cost mentioned above.  Anyone wishing to donate food at any time, can drop it off at Liberty School.  If someone is interested in a regular monthly donation each month they can give me a call and we'll discuss the specifics. Popular backpack items: Chefboyardee Beanee Weanees Poptarts Granola Bars Cereal Bars Raisins Canned fruit Peanut Butter Crackers Cracker pack (cheezits, gold fish...) Fruit snack Cookie pack Oatmeal Rice Krispie Treat or other sweet treat Ramen noodles Canned soup Macaroni and cheese Juice box or pack If you need more info, feel free to contact the Liberty Leader Newspaper and we will get your info to Kim Martin. Thanks for giving. Pay it forward.

Your Hometown Friendly Beauty Shop Man Megan ie n An dy Sus

It can be so easy to take things for granted. We live our “normal” lives and sometimes loose track of what others may be going through. One of the things that I love about is that no matter what the situation, there is always and individual, group, club or organization that pulls people together when needs arise. Such was the case with Draggin For Tots. A group of friends and fellow car guys got together and put this toy drive show into motion. Toys were collected last year from the show entries for the Randolph and Montgomery counties’ Toys For Tots. Over 1,000 toys were donated and about $300 in cash raised at the show. There were trophies for the top 20 rides as well as a longest distance traveled and club participation, but the true reward was learning that EVERY kid on the list would receive at least 3 toys that year thanks to everyone’s support. The show was great and brought out a positive out of everyone. I encourage you to make plans to grab a toy and visit this years Draggin For Tots that will be hosted this year on Saturday Dec 12 at Roush Fenway Racing that is located at 5835 NC Hwy 49 North in Liberty (just as you leave the city limits of Liberty heading toward Ramseur) This will the 4th annual Dragging For Tots Truck/Bike/ Car Show. Gates open at 9am with registration until 1pm. Registration fees is a NEW UNWRAPPED Toy. This yearsAwards include Top 25, Club Participation(which goes to club/ person who brings the most toys) Longest Distance Traveled, Best Under Construction, Best of Show and Kids Choice..
