November Chamber Newsletter

It is with a heavy heart that the Liberty Chamber of Commerce has decided to cancel this year’s Christmas Parade. This decision did not come lightly but due to COVID19 restrictions the Chamber Board has decided that it is not in the best interest of our community and our business members to invest time and money in preparing for a parade without a guarantee that road closures will be granted for us to host the parade. Anyone who has paid their parade entry fee will be reimbursed. However, after much consideration we have decided to continue on and host the Annual Tree Lighting Festival on the same date and time; Saturday December 5th from 2:30-6 pm!

Join us for the Annual Tree Lighting Festival Saturday December 5th 2:30-6 pm on Depot St. Come out and celebrate the kick-off of Christmas with FREE pictures with SANTA, FREE Hot dogs and S’mores Roasting, music, craft vendors, a kid zone and more! Watch as we light up the beautiful Christmas Tree for all to enjoy! Don’t forget that every child who has their picture taken with Santa will be entered into a drawing to win 1 of 6 bikes! Pictures with Santa Sponsored by; JB Griffith III – Liberty Advisors Bike Giveaway Sponsored by; High Tech Collision Highway 49 Motorcycle and Auto Center Liberty Tire and Auto We are excited to continue this tradition again this year and could not do it without the loyal support of our Chamber Members!

Bits’n’Pieces Presents SHINGLES Everything YOU need to know ! ! Part One of Two What is shingles? Shingles is the reactivation of a viral infection in the nerves to the skin that causes pain, burning, or a tingling sensation, along with an itch and blisters in the skin supplied by the affected nerve. It is caused by the varicella zoster virus, or VZV— the same virus that causes chickenpox. When the itchy red spots of childhood chickenpox disappear, the virus remains in a dormant state in our nerve cells, ready to strike again in later life. This second eruption of the chickenpox virus is called shingles or herpes-zoster. You cannot develop shingles unless you have had an earlier exposure to chickenpox. Shingles occurs when an unknown trigger causes the virus to become activated. Most adults who have the dormant virus in their body never get shingles. What are the symptoms and signs of shingles? The first symptom of shingles is often burning or tingling pain, or itch, generally in a band-like distribution on one side of the body, i.e., around the waist, chest, stomach, or back. Shingles pain can be mild or intense. Some people have mostly itching; some feel severe pain from the gentlest touch, such as the weight of bed linens or clothing. A few people may have general symptoms of a viral infection, like fatigue, fever, and headache. After several days or up to two weeks after the first symptoms are felt, a rash of fluid-filled blisters (vesicles) appears. These are similar to chickenpox but occur in a cluster rather than scattered over the body. The number of vesicles is variable. Some rashes merge and produce an area that looks like a burn. Other people may have just a few small scattered lesions. The clusters most often appear in a band called a dermatome, which contains nerves that branch out from the virus-affected nerve root exiting the spine. The second most common location is on one side of the face around the eye and on the forehead. However, shingles can involve any part of the body, including internal organs. Recent studies have shown that subtle cases of shingles with only a few blisters, or none, are more common than previously thought. These cases may remain unrecognized. What is the varicella-zoster virus and how does it cause shingles? The word “varicella” is derived from “variola,” the Latin word for smallpox. “Zoster” is the Greek word for girdle; shingles often produces a girdle or belt of blisters or lesions around one side of the waist. This striking pattern also underlies the condition’s common name: shingles comes from “cingulum,” the Latin word for belt or girdle. VZV belongs to a group of viruses called herpesviruses. This group includes the herpes simplex virus (HSV) that causes cold sores, fever blisters, and genital herpes. Like VZV, HSV can hide in the nervous system after an initial infection and then travel down nerve cell fibers to cause a renewed infection. Repeated episodes of cold sores on the lips are the most common example. Most adults in the United States have had chickenpox, even if it was so mild as to pass unnoticed, and they are at risk for developing shingles later in life. In the original exposure to VZV (chickenpox), some of the virus particles settle into nerve cells (neurons) of sensory ganglia (a group of nerve cells that connect the sensory periphery and central nervous system), where they remain for many years in an inactive, hidden (latent) form. The neurons in the sensory ganglia have nerve fibers that supply the skin and relay information to the brain about what the body is sensing—heat, cold, touch, pain. When the VZV reactivates, it spreads down the long nerve fibers (axons) that extend from the sensory cell bodies to the skin. As the virus multiplies, the telltale rash erupts. With shingles, the nervous system is more deeply involved than it was during the bout with chickenpox, and the symptoms are often more complex and severe. How are chickenpox and shingles different?

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

Volume 18 Issue 11

When a person, usually a child, who has not received the chickenpox vaccine is exposed to VZV, he or she usually develops chickenpox, a highly contagious disease that can be spread by breathing as well as by contact with the rash. The infection begins in the upper respiratory tract where the virus incubates for 15 days or more. VZV then spreads to the bloodstream and migrates to the skin, giving rise to the familiar chickenpox rash. In contrast, you can’t catch shingles from someone else. You must already have been exposed to chickenpox and harbor the virus in your nervous system to develop shingles. When reactivated, the virus travels down nerves to the skin, causing the painful shingles rash. In shingles, the virus does not normally spread to the bloodstream or lungs, so the virus is not shed in air. But a person with a shingles rash—which contains active virus particles—can pass the virus to someone who has never had chickenpox or who has not been vaccinated. In this case, the person will develop chickenpox, not shingles. A person must come into direct contact with the open sores of the shingles rash. Merely being in the same room with someone who has shingles will not cause chickenpox. Children who develop chicken pox generally fully recover; however, adults who develop chicken pox can become seriously ill. Likewise, a person with chickenpox cannot give shingles to someone else—but they can pass the virus to someone who has never had chickenpox. Who is at risk for shingles? Anyone who had previously had chickenpox is at risk for shingles. About 25 percent of all adults, mostly otherwise healthy, will get shingles during their lifetime, usually after age 50. The incidence increases with age so that shingles is 10 times more likely to occur in adults over 60 than in children under 10. People with compromised immune systems, a natural consequence of aging or from use of immunosuppressive medications such as prednisone, are at increased risk of developing shingles. Immune-suppressive drugs are used to treat serious illnesses such as cancer or from chemotherapy or radiation treatment, or from infection with HIV. Some individuals can also have re-eruptions and some, particularly those with significantly impaired immunity from drugs and diseases, may have shingles that spread over the body. Youngsters whose mothers had chickenpox late in pregnancy—5 to 21 days before giving birth—or who had chickenpox in infancy have an increased risk of pediatric shingles. Sometimes these children are born with chickenpox or develop a typical case within a few days (see section entitled “Can shingles during pregnancy or at birth harm the baby?” for more information). Most people who get shingles have it only once, but it is possible for the outbreak to appear again. NIH Publication No. 15-307 Prepared by:

National Night Out A Success National Night Out was held on Oct. 6th on N. Fayetteville St., near the elementary school. Intended as a night to encourage growing stronger relationships between communities and law enforcement, Liberty came out in support of this event. A special thanks to Taylor Presley, Will Doerfer and Kevin Carey for volunteering for the many, many cold water dunkings at the hands of the happy kids with good aim!

As a part of the Golden LEAF grant, KRG has completed all the initial lines that were in the initial grant proposal with additional lines to be completed this month and enough money from the grant to rehab an additional 6 more manholes.

Heather Stewart of the Randolph County Animal Shelter and their mascot Bruce came to share about adopting from the Animal Shelter at the Council Work Session October 19th. Bruce was found next to a road in Archdale still tethered to his dog house. The injuries he sustained from being thrown out of a vehicle led to him losing one of his eyes. Thankfully Bruce has recovered and is now the shelter mascot. Check out their Facebook page if looking for a new best friend. She said most of their dogs get adopted the same day. They have cats available for adoption as well.
