Into Every Life a Leaf Must Fall By Warren Dixon It’s an ill wind that blows no leaves. As if on cue, the leaves began falling last weekend. The Ash tree in the back yard has already dropped most of its leaves in the yard. It’s always the first to sprout leaves in the spring and the first to let go in the fall. The Ash leaves are pretty much homebodies, living in the gutters, on the deck and on the basement steps. They wouldn’t go over to the neighbor’s yard even in a hurricane. And last weekend the rest of the leaves started to get serious. Even the pine tree began to shed its needles. There are leaves lying flat on their backs in the back yard, leaves standing straight up in the high grass in the front, like little tombstones to summer. It was as if the Great Leaf Blower in the sky cranked up and cut loose. Not that I have anything against leaves, mind you. I actually traveled to Vermont once just to look at leaves. You might think that you don’t have to go far to see pretty leaves in the fall and you would be correct. Randolph County sports the prettiest leaves around, with sights that would rival the Blue Ridge Mountains. But to see magnificent leaves, you have to go to Vermont. North Carolina’s leaves might be a religious experience, but Vermont’s are the Holy Land. The trouble with leaves, though, or at least most leaves, is that some won’t leave and others won’t stay put. A leaf, by any other name, will still pile up in your gutters. You have to hand it to leaves. They know when to let go. They don’t hang around past their prime, trying to make a comeback like, say, an aging football player. A leaf knows when it’s time to move on. You won’t catch a leaf hanging around the service station bragging about the good ole days. When it’s a leaf’s time to go, it steps aside gracefully, moving over to make way for the younger generation. God must have loved leaves, He made so many of them. A leaf is an orphan and has no home. You may have a tree-less yard resembling the Mojave Desert but you will still have leaves. It’s an ill wind that blows no leaves. Before autumn is over and winter appears, neighbors’ leaves from blocks away will pile up in your yard like snow drifts. And, if you can hold on long enough and resist the urge to gather these trespassing leaves, they may one day return to their owners. In the leaf business, possession is 9/10’s of the law. We are blessed with leaves that fall in shifts, like dominos, all through autumn into spring. If they’re not falling from our trees, they’re blowing in from out neighbors’. When all the neighborhood trees are bare, eighteen wheelers traveling down Highway 49 bring in leaves from Ramseur and Burlington and points all over North Carolina and scatter them in our yard. The history of leaves in America is a long one. The members of the Lost Colony, certain they were about to be lost and unable to get the men to stop and ask directions, faxed in this memo to their families and friends in England: “We are Knee Deepe in Leafes and Have Not a Rake in the Entire Place. Will be Forced to Move Soon or Suffocate…” The Pilgrims reported that, “We About Loste a Table Full of Foode, Cranberry Sauce and Punkin Pye, So Deepe Were the Leaves…” Later, during the Civil War, Robert E. Lee complained that “so many of the men have deserted this fall, claiming to have gone home to rake leaves…” Pioneers, traveling west by covered wagon, were impressed with the Great Plains, writing back to relatives back east of the “rich soil and lack of leaves,” There were so few leaves, one pioneer wrote, that before crossing the Rockies, “many have discarded their leaf blowers…” There are many modern day methods of handling leaves. Many people prefer to let a sleeping leaf lie. There are at least two benefits to this: (1.) The leaves kill the grass (2.) Considerably less mowing has to be done. If you live in the city where you have leaf pickup in the fall, you may rake or blow your leaves to the curb. This way they will eventually be propelled by passing cars and the elements back into your yard or to the neighbors’. We prefer to compost our leaves. We have a compost pile, but many years the leaves don’t reach the compost pile until spring. By this time they have not only killed the grass in our back yard, but also traveled around the neighborhood like giant drifting sand dunes, killing the neighbors’ grass, too. We use a combination of raking and leaf blowing methods to gather these leaves in piles, then employ the sophisticated sheet procedure to drag them to the compost pile. This way, in no time at all and with only a month’s worth of work, you can soon have $1.98 worth of rich, twig-filled, compost. Just remember: If everyone lit just one little candle, you still couldn’t burn all the leaves.

Cucumbers... I didn't know this...& to think all these years I've only been making salads with the cucumbers... WHAT A LITTLE GEM THE CUCUMBER IS. I WILL LOOK AT IT DIFFERENTLY NOW. 1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc. 2. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B vitamins and Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for hours. 3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spalike fragrance. 4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area. 5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!! 6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!! 7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation. 8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don't have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks great but also repels water. 9. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone! 10.Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber will react with the boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during final exams. 11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemicals will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath. 12. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine, but is won't leave streaks and won't harm you fingers or fingernails while you clean. 13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!! Pass this along to everybody you know who is looking for better and safer ways to solve life's everyday problems

What We Found in the Pumpkin Patch When my wife and I came up with the crazy idea of creating a children’s area at the Ramseur fall festival we had no idea what we were getting into. You see our original idea was to give away 50 pumpkins and about the same number of candy bags. Maybe a booth for the children to visit and get a treat and a pumpkin. Until we ran out anyways, in the past few years ourfall festival was a small event and 50 pumpkins would have been plenty. The reality was a very busy day of fun and games that allowed us to give away 300 bags filled with over 15,000pcs of candytotal, and 325 pumpkins in less than 2 hours. We also gave the children 1,500 carnival prizes that they won playing the carnival style games that were designed and built by us. We had 2 bounce houses and an obstacle course. How did this happen? We reached out to several business and personal contacts and found ourselves surprised with a resounding “if its for the kids we will help”. And before we knew it our little idea became a well-funded big idea that would require a lot more work to put together. So how do you put together a large children’s event in little more than a month? With the help and support of so many local citizens. People that went above and beyond either with their labor or their wallet to make this vision a reality. This is the moral of this story is not the success of the event, but the love and effort our community put into this event to make it a success. Over half of our donors were private local citizens that just wanted a chance to show our children they love and appreciate them. And it did not stop there either as throughout the entire process those same people provided ideas, encouragement, supplies, and labor. They seen a chance to change the fall festival into a family centric event and they made many personal donations of time and money to make this happen. People like David Overman that not only donated but also funded half of the bounce houses, let us use power and storage at the lodge, plusspent countless hours helping us haul and assemble everything. There are so many more to mention but I think this are great example of what our local’s will do when called upon for our community. So what did we find in the Pumpkin Patch? Proof that Ramseur is more than the petty politics that we are so often known for, more then “that place between Asheboro and Siler City”. We are a community that goes above and beyond for our neighbors, our children and our elderly. We are a community with strong ties and bonds to our c h u r c h e s and our civic responsibilities. We are “the little town with a big heart”. And we are proud to call Ramseur home. James & Cheryl Rank

She has worn numerous hats such as being a faithful member of the Usher Board, raised many children other than her own, a caretaker, a hairdresser, and a mentor. Her faith never waivers and has always been present when others need her. She comes from a family of Native Americans with longevity and has obviously inherited the same gene. She is the granddaughter of the late Frettie Coltrane who lived to be 104 years old. On October 22, 2019, we had the pleasure of celebrating her 90th birthday.

BitterSweet Destiny A True story of Love Lost, then Found and with an unforgettable Ending. My wildest dreams or imagination could not have prepared me for the change that was about to take place in my life as I dialed the phone that Saturday afternoon January 22, 1994. Sixty Seven years old, divorced, and still single for more than thirty years, I was positively the last woman on earth anyone would expect to be interested in the adventures that would follow that phone call. But I had already dialed the number; the phone was ringing and soon I would hear a voice that I had not heard in almost fifty years! It all began Friday afternoon at work when the office chit chat had suddenly turned into a discussion of romance and marriage proposals. Each of the close knit group I worked with shared their proposal experience, and finally it was my turn. Strangely though, I didn’t tell of the proposal from the man I married because suddenly I was remembering the proposal from my first true love. We were teenaged sweethearts and I knew I loved Bob, even on our very first date. We met at a party on Saturday night July 10, 1943 and hit it off together at once. The following Wednesday evening, on our first date, we went to an amusement park and it happened as we were waiting in line to ride the ferris wheel. I remember looking at him and suddenly my heart was saying “I love you, I love you!” But of course I couldn’t share this revelation with him! Not then! After all, we had just met a few days ago and I was only sixteen! I was much too young to listen to what my heart was saying. How was I to know that once a seed of love is sown in your heart, it can lay dormant, abandoned and seemingly forgotten for years, but the heart never forgets; the heart will always remember where real love has been. The destiny of our love would wait………… Although we both dated others, we agreed that it seemed most right only when we were together. His proposal came on Christmas Day, 1944. It was a total surprise, and in my confusion I never gave him an answer because I was only 17 and had dated a ‘soldier boy’ a time or two. Then, because he

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

The Liberty Leader Newspaper knew I had seen the ‘soldier boy’, he took my silence to mean ‘no’ and he never asked again. A few months later he walked me to work one night and told me he was getting married the next day. He would marry a girl he had recently met and would be moving out of state. I congratulated him, we said goodbye and then walked out of each others’ lives. From that day on I never saw him, heard from him or heard anything about him again. I eventually married an acquaintance of that ‘soldier boy’. This marriage ended in divorce, three children and seventeen years later. As my story unfolded all my listeners had the same question, “Why didn’t you say yes?”. I had my own questions too. I told them I had never forgotten my true love and I would still like to know what had happened to him. Even now as I was telling my story, I wondered aloud why I never said to him, “I love you”. I told them I would still like for him to know how I felt about him back then; but I had no way of knowing what had become of that 18 year old boy who had sweetly asked me to be his wife on that faraway Christmas Day. When leaving the lunch room that day, I happened to pick up the newspaper. In it was an article about an elderly lady with the same last name as my Bob. My curiosity was stirred and with Bob still on my mind the next day, I called her. I learned that she had a stepson named Robert Grey Fox. He lived in Belleville, New Jersey and had been a widower for three years. What I did next was completely out of character for me but I was following my heart. This time I would make sure to have no regrets! The voice that answered the phone that Saturday afternoon was different than I remembered, since he no longer spoke with that definite Southern ‘drawl’. Later we would laugh as I teased him about his Yankee accent. I did not identify myself but instead mentioned the small community where we grew up and immediately he spoke my name. After that he often boasted of how it only took him one hint to recognize me. I didn’t use much diplomacy during the next forty five minutes that we talked. We were both up front about our intentions to never re-marry. After all, the things we were remembering

Page 17 of 32

Volume 17 Issue 11 now had happened fifty years ago, so I just plowed right in. I asked him if he remembered proposing to me. Without hesitation, he said he not only remembered proposing to me but he remembered where we were and what I was wearing, “A pink sweater with flowers down the front”. Before we hung up we had promised to write each other and send photos. It was decided that we would see each other in June when he would make the long trip back to Winston Salem, North Carolina to visit his family. I reasoned with myself that there was absolutely no hidden meaning as we ended that call with both of us saying ‘I love you”. I had finally gotten to say it to him! Just softly spoken words, I kept reminding myself as I waited for his letter. We would both learn the power of the heart to remember! I couldn’t wait to get back to work on Monday and share, with my Proctor and Gamble coworkers, all that had happened. The previous Friday, Bob was just a long lost memory, a story to be shared, and now I had actually talked to him. Everyone was excited but also very awed by what had happened. None of us could believe how it happened that the story I chose to share happened just moments before picking up the very newspaper with the article that led to my phone call. After that, it seemed as though each day was another chapter in a love story that began a long time ago, and we enjoyed musing among ourselves as to what would happen next and how all of this would unfold. Others at Proctor and Gamble would take note and have a part in the unfolding of the real-life story! We did not know the final chapter was being written, even as we pondered what turn the events would be taking next. End of Part 1 to be continued… Copyright August 26, 1996 Used by Permission

Bits’n’Pieces Hey everybody. Aren’t you glad that you live in a small town, where folks see you, know you, call you by name? You can sit at breakfast for as long as you like, with friends and neighbors rotating in and out of the seats. Breakfast, yes, and sharing the good news of the day! What if you had a voice to Shout Out to everyone in Liberty at once? But wait; there are many Liberty folks who have moved away! We have family living in other parts of the world, who read the Liberty Leader so that they can keep in touch with their small town happenings. Now you may have a voice as in social media. Bits’n’Pieces, is small town social media in print. If you are a person who may not always enjoy the vastness of the internet, Bits’n’Pieces is just for you. You will find the email address at the end of this article. You may use it to give a compliment to a neighbor who has helped you or a business in town that went beyond the norm to serve your needs. Here is a place where good news happens. Here is a place where you can share tips that you have learned from ‘somewhere’. Here is a tip that you may carry away today! When done cleaning the toilet, put the now-clean toilet seat down onto the handle of the toilet brush. Now it can drip dry right into the toilet. Be sure to remove the brush and stow it away, before someone is in a rush to use the toilet! Use the email below to share an idea, ask a question, or leave a warm comment, which will be shared in this space. That’s right! You will see it right here! This is a place of support and encouragement for our community. This is not an editorial page, or a place to rant and rave about politics or heated issues of the day. There are plenty of spaces where that information is covered in the media. However, if you feel like ranting and raving about something really delightful and great, then this is your spot. It may be a simple comment from a stranger that really stuck with you and encouraged you. It may be a kindness you saw or heard about, anytime (could have been when you were a child), or anyplace (perhaps when you were on a vacation, or business trip), or at work, at home or at a family reunion! Is there something you would like to know more about? Would you like to share a wonderful thought from your journal, or a poem you wrote in honor of Loved One’s passing? Do you have a happy memory of times gone by? Do you have a story to tell? Do you have a home-grown solution, or an old time remedy that has always worked for you? Why keep those wonderful gems to yourself which could help at least one other person along the way? And remember to come and visit Bits’n’Pieces if YOU would like a little help along the way. You are welcome anytime! Just use the email below if you feel like dropping a line to share the good times and good things that life has taught you! It is your time to shine! Email:

BIKES FOR KIDS! Bikes for Kids Foundation and Petty Family Foundation teamed up to award free bicycles to every third-grader at the following elementary schools: Coleridge, Liberty, Ramseur, Randleman, and Tabernacle. Earlier in the school year, the third graders participated in a contest in which they were asked to write an essay on "My Big Dream Is..." The students attended a celebration at Randleman Elementary School on 10/15/19 expecting that one student from each of the five schools would be awarded a bike for the best essay. Little did the students know what awaited. At the end of the event, EVERY student was surprised with a new bike!

Liberty Elementary Media Center Storybook Pumpkin Patch Students were invited to design a pumpkin to look like their favorite storybook character. There were 99 pumpkins in our patch! Each child that brought a pumpkin received a book for participation. It was a great success that is sure to be a new tradition at Liberty!
