African-American Mike Morgan wins Supreme Court seat BY TODD LUCK THE CHRONICLE

Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States. In a shocking upset, the Republican candidate gained more Electoral College votes than

Cooper Democrat Hillary Clinton, who is a former first lady, senator and secretary of state. Early Wednesday morning, she disbanded what was planned as a victory party and called Trump to concede. Clinton had the most actual votes as of presstime, however. Trump’s victory speech had a conciliatory tone after a divisive and nasty campaign, in which he called his opponent “Crooked Hillary.” Trump won North Carolina by a little more than 3 percent.

Norman Holleman in the primary, won her bid for the office against Republican Steve Wood. Johnson is a former long-time employee of the Register of Deeds office and currently works in the Clerk of Courts office. Attorney Carrie Vickery defeated Aaron Berlin, a Forsyth County assistant district attorney, winning the 21st Judicial District seat of Judge William Graham, who is retiring. Vickery has been an attorney with the Holton Law Firm since 2009. She first declared her candidacy for the seat in 2013 and has been working ever since to fulfill her longtime dream of becoming a judge. “I’m excited,” said Vickery. “We’ve run a really hard campaign and I’ve got so much support

He had no challenger on the ballot, but JoAnne Allen ran as a write-in candidate. There were more than 5,000 write-in votes, but how many of those are for Allen will be determined next week, during the local BOE’s canvass. All three county bonds won by wide margins. Voters approved $350 million for WinstonSalem/Forsyth County Schools, $65 million for Forsyth Technical Community College and $15 million for Forsyth County parks.

lenger Josh Brannon. There were many shake ups in state government, including races that weren’t decisive as of The Chronicle’s press time. The governor’s race between Gov. Pat McCrory and Attorney General Roy Cooper ended with Cooper up a fraction of a percent, which qualifies it for a recount. Other state races that ended within the half a percent that qualifies for a recount include Democrat Josh Steins’ victory for attorney general over Buck Newton, and Republican Beth Wood’s win for auditor over incumbent Chuck Stuber. Other tight victories above the half a percent recount margin include incumbent Superintendent June Atkinson, a Democrat, being defeated by Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools Board of Education Member Mark Johnson, a Republican. Republican Dan Forest also won re-election as lieutenant governor. Republican Mike Causey also unseated incumbent Commissioner of Insurance Wayne Goodwin. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, a Democrat, and Commissioner of Labor Cherie Berry, a Republican, both

successfully defended their seats, as did Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler, who is also a Republican. Dale Folwell also won a decisive victory against Dan Blue III for treasurer, a position held by Janet Cowell, who isn’t seeking re-election. Incumbents won in the judicial races for District 21c Superior Court and N.C.Court of Appeals with the exception of Republican Phil Berger Jr.’s defeat of Linda Stephens, a 10 years incumbent on the appeals court.

Meetings on new 2017 bus routes happening T H E C H R ON I C LE

BY TODD LUCK THE CHRONICLE

Bus riders will get a chance to see how next year’s new routes will affect them in a series of public meetings held by the Winston-Salem Transit Authority. WSTA is holding its first meeting tonight on the redrawn bus routes that will go into effect on Monday, Jan. 2. This is the biggest overhaul of routes in WSTA history. There will be more routes with approximately 1,019 bus stops. The routes have been redesigned to cut down on ride time and include new crosstown routes. Popular destinations, like all the local Walmarts, will have day and nighttime routes going directly to them. There will be 11 information meetings held at recreation centers and the Clark Campbell Transportation Center though Dec. 8 for bus patrons. “It will be their last opportunity before the routes are implemented to learn how they can get the most out of the

copies of the routes will be available at the Campbell Center’s information windows starting Dec. 1. Starting Dec. 12, there will also be someone with information and materials on the new routes in the lobby of the Campbell Center, to answer passenger questions. The campaign to inform passengers of the new routes will also include radio and newspaper ads along with a large social media push. There will also be reminders announced through the P.A. system on buses. Carson-Wilkins said WSTA is ready for the switch over next year. The routes have already been thoroughly tested, programed into WSTA’s computers, and bus operators have been trained on them. She hoped bus patrons would come out to the information meetings, which she believes will alleviate the anxiety some have over the big change. “I view it as a way to set a lot of our passengers’ minds at ease,” she said. “Information is power and the more information they have, the more comfortable they will be on day one.”

Union Station work moves forward after concerns about minority contractors

Renovations on Union Station should begin by year’s end.

BY TODD LUCK THE CHRONICLE

Renovations on Union Station should begin by year’s end after the City Council unanimously approved the project on Nov. 7. A vote on the restoration of the historic train station was delayed when concerns were raised about the highest bidder, New Atlantic Contracting Inc., not meeting the project’s 12 percent goal on minority participation. Evon Smith, a former Minority and Women Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Program director with the city, told the council during its Oct. 17 meeting that she believed the goal could’ve been met based on the amount of minority contractors available for that type of work. City Council

Member Derwin Montgomery then moved to hold the item. He said this week that once he had a chance to review all the documents, he was assured New Atlantic made a good faith effort to recruit minority subcontractors. “I wanted to make sure the concerns that were raised at the previous meeting were addressed, and make sure the process was followed properly,” said Montgomery. New Atlantic bid $11.1 million on the project, which has a $13.6 million budget. The project has 9.11 percent woman-owned subcontractors, which exceeds the M/WBE goal, and 5.91 percent minority subcontractors. The Internal M/WBE Committee and the Citizen's M/WBE Advisory Committee found a good faith effort

was made. The project was advertised on the city’s website and 24 general contractors were notified about it. A city memo on the project stated that the “specialized nature of the historic project work” limited the subcontractors available in the various trades used in the project. Union Station is a historic train station located at 300 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. It was designed by Fellhimer & Wagner and built between 1924 and 1926. The renovation is for all three floors of Union Station. It’ll be transformed into a transit center for buses with office and retail space, and is expected to be completed in 2018. The long-term goal is to return passenger rail service to Union Station.


New motion could free K. Smith A4

BY CASH MICHAELS FOR THE CHRONICLE

The supporters of Kalvin Michael Smith maintain that he is innocent of the 1995 brutal beating of an assistant manager of the former Silk Plant Forest store. Smith, 45, was convicted for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and armed robbery, and after a controversial Winston-Salem Police investigation, sentenced to up to 29 years in prison for the crime. He has spent over 19 years in custody thus far for a crime he insists he didn’t do. But Smith’s current attorney, former U.S. Attorney Walton Holton, filed a supplemental motion for appropriate relief in Forsyth County Superior Court last Friday, seeking to have Kalvin Smith released from prison immediately based on time served for the alleged assault, and should not serve further time on the armed robbery conviction. “The defendant has now served the full sentence of imprisonment imposed in the assault case,” the motion states, noting that this is the latest in a series of motions since

July 1999 which were all previously denied. Holton contends in the motion that regarding the robbery conviction, “…the court was not presented and failed to consider mitigating factors justifying a sentence in the presumptive or mitigating range.” The motion then refers back to an April 2008 motion that claimed “ineffective assistance of counsel” based on a case law standard of ‘…whether a counsel’s performance fell below a reasonably objective standard causing prejudice to the defendant.” Case law, Holton maintained in the supplemental motion, made clear that the defendant is entitled to a resentencing “…when mitigating factors are not properly presented for consideration by the court at a sentencing hearing.” Thus, the motion continued, Smith’s original trial attorney allegedly failed to present a proper defense by not introducing important mitigating facts like an impressive work history since age 16; commendable personal history, in addition to strong family support from his mother, father and sister among others, that constitutionally should have been consid-

Smith

ered by the trial judge during sentencing. The only mitigating factor considered by the trial judge was a letter from the jail in which Smith had ben held for trial, stating that he “impressed an instructor” there while being held in custody. Under proper consideration, the trial judge could have sentenced Smith to a maximum of nine years in prison. In 2008, Forsyth County prosecutors declared a conflict of interest in the case. Since then the Attorney General office of Roy Cooper, who was running for governor, has handled it. For nearly a decade, the Silk Plant Forest Truth Committee has been advocating for Smith’s release, saying that he was wrongly convicted. The committee as well as supporters at both Winston-Salem State

University and Wake Forest University, and the N.C. NAACP have urged Cooper, including holding rallies outside his office, to join Smith’s defense to petition for a new trial, saying that a thorough review of the case by law enforcement experts (including a former FBI agent) revealed “sloppy” investigative police work. Cooper refused. In recent months, the Ministers’ Conference of Winston-Salem and Vicinity (MCWSV), students from local colleges and universities, and countless other organizations have joined the fight to prove Smith’s innocence. During a short discussion over the phone earlier this week MCWSV president Bishop Todd Fulton

said he was excited that the courts have decided to take another look at the case. “This is exciting news,” Fulton said. “Now we just have to wait and see what happens.” Holton’s office told The Chronicle at press time Tuesday that no new hearing date or time had been established. According to published reports, a hearing was originally scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday, but for some reason did not take place. However a hearing is expected some time this week, meaning that if Holton’s motion is granted, Kalvin Smith could be released as soon as this week. That would

cancelled, were able to cast their ballots, thanks to a federal judge’s ruling which called their removal “insane.” The n.C. nAACP charged that the black voter removal by the three county boards of elections was another attempt by republicans to suppress the black vote right before the crucial 2016 general election, and filed suit oct. 31 in federal court in Winston-Salem against the State Board of Elections and three county Boards of Election (BoE) cited. U.S. District Court Judge Loretta Biggs, in her nov. 4 ruling, agreed. “[T]here is little question that the County Boards’ process of allowing third parties to challenge hundreds and, in Cumberland County, thousands of voters within 90 days before the 2016 General Election constitutes the type of “systematic” removal prohibited by the [national voter registration Act],” Judge Biggs wrote. As outlined in the n.C. nAACP lawsuit and petition for an emergency injunction, members of a right-wing organization called “The voter integrity Project (TviP) purportedly sent out thousands of pieces of mail addressed to mostly black voters in Beaufort, Moore and Cumberland counties just a few weeks before the nov. 8 general election. Any single mailing that came back marked “undeliverable” by the post office was then taken to the local county board of elections as “proof” that the voter no longer lived at that address, and therefore should be removed from the voting rolls. “without written confirmation from

the affected voters or compliance with federal voter registration laws.” According to the suit, 3,951 voter registrations were challenged in Cumberland County, 400 in Moore County and 138 in Beaufort County. But as the lawsuit maintained, the “undeliverable” scheme was in violation of the federal national voter registration Act, which clearly states that voters cannot be removed from the county rolls inside of 90 days before an election. That clearly wasn’t done, and the removals were deemed “systematic” because the challenges came from members of TviP were “coordinated.” Because of north Carolina’s notorious recent history of legislatively attempting to suppress the black vote through the 2013 voter iD law, the U.S. Department of Justice [DoJ] filed a “statement of interest” supporting the n.C. nAACP complaint. “[T]he purge program at issue here rested on a mass mailing and the silence of voters largely unaware of the potential injury to their  voting rights,” the DoJ stated. in fact in many cases, the black voters targeted still lived at the addresses the alleged undeliverable mail came back from, or at the very least, were still living in the very county they were registered and eligible to vote in. “The voter purges have a long history of being racially motivated and terribly inaccurate, said Penda hair, an attorney for the nAACP. “it’s a timeworn GoP strategy to suppress the black vote that is being recycled in the runup to Election Day.” on its website, the voter integrity Project blasted the n.C. nAACP for its action, maintaining that the civil rights group, was “…indirectly  attacking the race-blind research techniques of election integrity watchdogs in north Carolina.” “We will not take these false accusations lying down,” TviP stated on its website. “our supporters work for the integrity of U.S. elections by exposing vulnerabilities and recommending corrective action.

We a v i l who has spent her entire teaching career in the local school district, Weavil w a s selected from nominees from each school who had to submit a portfolio and go through an interview process. During a ceremony to honor Weavil and other outstanding teachers in the district on Monday, nov. 7, the South Carolina native said she was inspired to go into the profession by her mother, a retired teacher and principal. “At the age of 5, i knew i wanted to be a teacher. i would say i’m going to be a teacher like my mom.” When she got the news she had been named 20162017 Teacher of the Year,

Weavil said she was at a lost for words. She said the entire process from being nominated to being selected earlier this year has been humbling. “i’m honored that i get to stand in a room with so many people i have a lot of respect for and represent you as teacher of the year. This is probably the most humbling experience i’ve had in my entire life.” Teachers who made the final cut were honored during the banquet held at the old Salem visitors Center as well. This years’ finalist for teacher of the year are r.J. reynolds chemistry teacher Joshua Bragg, Bolton Elementary third grade teacher Anna Geras, South Fork Elementary music teacher Ashley hayes, and Lowrance Middle exceptional children’s teacher reagan Stillerman. Weavil challenged the room filled with educators to continue to grow and develop new ways to reach students.

Rep. Adams responds to Burr’s pride in blocking judicial nominations T H E C H R ON I C LE

BY TODD LUCK THE CHRONICLE

Just days before the election, Rep. Alma Adams and other Democrats called out Sen. Richard Burr for saying that blocking judicial nominees was the “right thing to do” despite their qualifications. Audio of Burr talking to supporters was released by CNN last week. During the remarks, Burr quipped about being surprised there wasn’t a bulls-eye on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton when he saw her on the cover of a gun magazine. Burr has since apologized for the remarks. In the same recording, he talked about the Supreme Court, which has had a vacancy since February because Republican lawmakers refuse to hold a hearing for President Barack Obama’s nominee for the seat. “If Hillary Clinton becomes president, I’m going to do everything I can do to make sure that four years from now, we’ve

still got an opening on the Supreme Court,” he told them. He told the audience that blocking such a high level nomination wasn’t tough for him because he has the longest judicial vacancy in the history of the United States in the Eastern District of North Carolina. Adams gave her response in front of Burr’s local field office at a Democratic press event held on Thursday, Nov. 3, saying he’s “taken partisan obstruction to a new low.” She pointed out he also voted against the attorney general nomination of Greensboro-native Loretta Lynch, but she was confirmed, anyway. “Anyone who refuses to do their job should be fired,” said Adams. Adams, who represents the 12th District that currently contains parts of Winston-Salem, was joined by City Council Member Denise “D.D.” Adams, who represents the North Ward. Denise Adams also

Turnout at predominantly black voting places in the city was like a roller coaster ride on Tuesday night with numbers very high at some locations and historically low in others. At Forsyth Tech’s Maize Woodruff Center at Carver School Road and Lansing Drive, more than 300 people showed up to cast their ballots, according to chief judge Kay Shelton. With just over an hour left before the polls closed, Shelton said the flow had been steady throughout the day. “The turnout here has been pretty good. We started out fast and had a little down time around 1 o’clock but we picked back up after voters got off work,” Shelton said. Just down the street at Carver High School, chief judge Donielle Walker said only about 30 people showed up the entire day. She said, “It’s been pretty slow, but we had a big turnout during early voting, so that could be a contributing factor.” Walker also mentioned many of the people who showed up to vote at Carver were at the wrong precinct and had to go elsewhere. She said a number of provisional ballots were submitted throughout the day as well. At the Fourteenth Street Recreation Center in the heart of East Winston, volunteer Puccinni Roseboro said it was much of the same. During a short discussion with The Chronicle, Roseboro said many people were going to the wrong voting place because they had not done their research. “A lot of people are showing up here because it’s convenient for them or because they have friends and family members who

Since then, it has been pretty steady, most of the booths are filled at all times.” Miller said. With just over two hours before the polls closed, the Martin Luther King Jr. location had already seen close to 400 voters. After casting her ballot, city native Junetta Holman said she was going home to pray that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton becomes the next and first woman President of the United States. “I feel confident that Clinton will get the win but just in case I’m headed home now to pray,” laughed Holman. “This election has been crazy.

The lack of a early voting spot on campus didn’t stop more than 50 students at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) from voting last week thanks to the efforts of the Forsyth County Democratic Party (FCDP). On Friday, Nov. 4 FCDP provided a shuttle service complete with a van and several vehicles to takes students to the early voting station at the William Roscoe Anderson Jr. Recreation Center on Reynolds Park Road. Before taking a group of students to

submit their ballots, volunteer Allen Wilson said he was delighted to help. “This election is very important and I wanted to make sure the students here at Winston-Salem State understand how important their vote is,” he said. After casting her ballot, WSSU freshman Terrian Moore said although a lot of her peers have decided not to vote this election, she said she wanted to do her part. “The two candidates might not be my first choice but not voting is not a option for me,” said Moore. “Our ancestors did too much for us to have this right, that’s why I decided to vote.”

Time to move ahead within ‘rigged’ system

The campaigning is over. Now, the path to governing begins. Donald Trump campaigned vigorously by calling people names; vowing to cut freedom for undocumented residents, especially those of Mexican descent; speaking about sexually assaulting women (he says he didn’t do any of the things he boasted about); threatening to screen Muslims entering the country because he says they might be terrorists; and being condescending as he tried to court African-Americans. Whew. And he still won. He faces a court date over his defunct Trump Universit. The case is being heard by a judge Trump called biased because of his Mexican heritage. He questioned the judge’s citizenship as an American. How can the country heal based on Donald Trump’s background? How can African-Americans trust Trump when his campaign was mostly funded by one billionaire who is paying the salaries of Trump staffers, including a leader of a racist organization, Breitbart News Network? Will Trump make leaders of the Klu Klux Klan members of his Cabinet? After all, the group endorsed him. And what about those jobs he promised Americans? In this “rigged” system, as he called it, will only the people who voted for him get those jobs, if any jobs really emerge? Trump has a lot of backtracking to do if he expects to heal the country. Maybe he doesn’t expect to heal the country. Maybe he wants to destroy it. We are hunkering down for the next four years.

ELECTION DAY QUOTES

Below are some quotes generated on Tuesday, Nov. 8 in Winston-Salem:

Melissa Harris Perry, the Maya Angelou Presidential Chair at Wake Forest University. She also is the Executive Director of the Pro Humanitate Institute and founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Center at Wake Forest.

“No matter who wins, we must continue to work together to build a better, stronger country. We have to figure out how we’re going to have conversations with each other, how we’re going to get the things we need. Don’t buy into the hype that this is the worse thing that every happened to you because it’s not. We’re going to be all right.” ***

Eric Ellison, chairman of the Forsyth County Democratic Party

“I think all of us are proud of the efforts we put forth as Democrats. We had a record number of early votes, and record number of Democrats with absentee votes, so I think we did well. I’m very confident that by the end of the night, Forsyth County and North Carolina will be blue not just for president but for governor and attorney general. We’re very confident but we have to wait until the final numbers are counted.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Investigation needed regarding burning of church in Miss. To the Editor:

We are deeply concerned regarding last night’s [Nov. 1] attack on Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi. We are even more concerned that this church, a cornerstone of this majority-Black community located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, was vandalized and targeted on the eve of the upcoming 2016 general election. The toxic rhetoric of this election cycle continues to cast a dark cloud over this election cycle. The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law urges the U.S. Department of Justice to bring its expertise to bear in a full investigation of this incident to determine if this was indeed a racially-driven hate crime and to identify the perpetrators behind this attack. The investigation and prevention of church arsons must remain a national priority. Our country has scars, both old and new, from attacks levied against Black churches and other houses of worship. These incidents tear at the fabric of our nation and should be condemned in every respect. Kristen Clarke President and Executive Director Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law

Be careful or children can get swine flu To the Editor:

I'm especially relieved that I didn't take my children to the North Carolina State Fair now that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a report indicating that pigs at fairs are responsible for infecting children with swine flu. I wouldn't have wanted my kids to get sick, like many of the children who attended agricultural fairs in Michigan and Ohio did. North Carolina fairgoers have gotten sick, and worse, from casual animal contact in the past. For example, a 2-year-old boy died and at least 106 other people became ill with E. coli after visiting a petting zoo at the 2012 Cleveland County Fair. The CDC advises parents not to take strollers, bottles, pacifiers, sippy cups, or toys into animal areas, and suggests that children younger than 5 avoid petting zoos altogether. An editorial in the News & Observer concluded that petting zoos "have caused too much pain and sorrow for too many youngsters and their families in this state." But you can have fun without putting your child's health at risk or supporting cruelty to animals: Go hiking, camping, birdwatching, or simply enjoy the pool, park, or any other animal-free activity.

Open letter to our new President-Elect Dear President-Elect, Today you are elected to lead this great nation. The campaign season is over.  As you prepare to lead us, please consider carrying with you these four questions as guidelines of the things you think, say and do for your Presidency and for your administration.

Al Jubltz

Guest Columnist

*First, is it the truth? Seek the truth at every opportunity and then tell us.  We can handle the truth. *Second, is it fair to all concerned?  We like to be treated fairly and that one effort could lead to your re-election.

*Third, will it build goodwill and better friendships throughout our country and the world? We Americans feel friendly toward others and want others to consider us friends.  A smile, a conversation, listening to the aspirations of others is a step in this direction.

*Fourth, will it be beneficial to all concerned?  Truth, fairness, goodwill are important but please take the extra step to try to benefit all stakeholders both within this country and all over the planet.

You have earned the right to lead us and we are here to help as we also seek to live by these principles. We wish you well.

Just a year or so shy of being able to vote themselves, almost all of them admit being influenced and encouraged by Black Lives Matter and other movements for progressive social change. But they seem largely unmoved by the rivalry which is being termed by pundits “the most important election of our lifetime.” As a historian and teacher, I tried to look back at past electoral battles – including some very strange ones – to gain insights on the gaps we face today.

received almost 1 million votes – e v e n though he ran his campaign from a prison cell, with buttons which read “For President: Convict No. 9653.” Socialist Party candidate Eugene V. Debs was doing time because he was a staunch anti-militarist – much more than merely being in favor of gun control – and advocated resistance to the draft during World War I. Though hardly a threat to the mainstream parties, Debs’ 1920 campaign influenced many people (including women, whose nonviolent suffrage struggle prevailed and they voted across the entire country for the first time in US his-

tory). Fifty years ago, a former convict – Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver – ran for President on a platform including immediate withdrawal from Vietnam and “Black liberation: Black Power to Black People!” Though Cleaver himself did an about-face, becoming a Reagansupporting Republican by 1980, in 1968 he was as militant as they come – beating out civil rights icon comedian Dick Gregory as the nominee of the Peace and Freedom Party (PFP). The PFP ran many candidates in that turbulent year, including war resisting socialist David McReynolds, in an attempt to energize potential youthful voters concerned about racism and militarism. But

they had hardly more influence than 1972 candidate Shirley Chisolm of Brooklyn, New York – the nation’s first AfricanAmerican congresswoman, first AfricanAmerican to run for President, and first woman at run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. No doubt both President Obama and Hillary Clinton owe Chisolm a great debt of gratitude. There should be little surprise that, at a time of concern about policing and incarceration of Blacks and Latinos there is still disenfranchisement and distrust among many “people of color.” In the end, I believe much of the fear and anger we see amongst the electorate on all sides is based on a frustrated desire for fairness, for justice. Let us remember that – whoever wins – there is much work to be done to heal past wounds and reunite these United States.

Well water and your health: what you need to know and do Sarah Frantz

Guest Columnist

Ever wonder w h a t ’s in your w e l l water? T h e Forsyth County

Department of Public Health, Environmental Health division offers services to test your well water from properly constructed wells in order to protect your health. As a private well owner, it is up to you to test your water to ensure it is safe to use. Protect yourself and your family by testing your water regularly. When should your well be tested?

All newly constructed private wells in Forsyth County must be tested prior to establishing the well as a source of drinking water. This means the well must be tested before it is used. These tests check for bacterial and chemical contaminants, and should be conducted within 30 days of well construction completion. After the initial testing to ensure the well is providing safe drinking water, you will need to keep up with

testing your well. Well owners should check the wellhead once a year to make sure it is working properly and ensure that there are no cracks or openings where contaminants can get into the well water. Well water should also be tested after any repairs, replacement of well parts, and after flooding events. Contaminants may enter your well through cracks in improperly constructed wells, if the wellhead is removed, or if the wellhead is underwater. Contamination of wells can also be caused by surface runoff, agricultural and construction activities, toxic spills and leaking fuel tanks. The State Laboratory of Public Health recommends you test your well every year for total and fecal coliform bacteria. Every two years, test for heavy metals, nitrates, lead, copper, and volatile organic compounds (VOC). Every five years, well owners should test for pesticides. If you know that pesticides are being applied in your area, test the well yearly for pesticides. There are special situations that may require additional, or more frequent, testing. If you are pregnant or have an infant at home, you should test your water for nitrates. Look for nitrates

If your well contains nitrates, do not drink the water or use it to prepare baby formula. Boiling does not remove nitrates, so use an alternate source of water instead. Additional and more frequent testing is also needed when there are known problems with well water in your area, flooding, land disturbances, or waste disposal has been found in the area. If you replace or repair any part of your well system or if you notice changes in water taste, color, or smell, test your well. Well water testing services can be provided through Forsyth County Health Department by completing a water sampling request form and providing payment for the tests chosen. This form is available at www.forsyth.cc/publichealth/environmentalhealth/wells_water_sampling.aspx For additional information about private drinking water wells see the EPA website at www.epa.gov/privatewells Sarah Frantz, MPH, CHES, is public health educator, Community Health Services, Forsyth County Department of Public Health.

Before heading out to the polls on Tuesday morning, members of the Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority invited the community and local candidates to enjoy the organization’s annual Election Day Breakfast. Designed to raise the morale of local voters, this year’s event was held at the Ivy Arms Center. Chapter President Kenyatta Richmond said the breakfast was part of the organization’s Community Impact Day, which is celebrated by sorority members across the nation. Richmond said, “Not just locally, but AKAs across the country are mobilizing to get out and take people to the polls, making sure people are registered and everything

Kenyatta Richmond, president of the Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, welcomes members of the community and local candidates to the Election Day Breakfast held at the Ivy Arms we can to ensure people are getting out to vote.”

Before breakfast was served, Rev. Carlton Eversley, local activist and pastor of Dellabrook Presbyterian Church, delivered the keynote address that inspired citizens to take advantage of their right to vote. As he stood in

front of the room decorated in pink and green, Eversley said, “This is about much more than an election; our humanity is at stake. “We are fighting for our citizenship. We’re fighting and we’re struggling,” he said. “We all know the history of blacks and whites in this country who fought and died for the right to vote, so I hope get out a make sure you vote counts.” After listening to Eversley’s powerful message, Barbara Puryear said she was really moved by the message. She said, Eversley really knows how to motivate people. “He is a real activist who always tells it like it is,” said Puryear. “With the campaigns we’ve seen this election season, I think this is exactly what the voters needed to hear.”

The city is planning to transform a historic site on Second Street into a park for a thriving downtown neighborhood. A meeting was held to show residents of the Holly Avenue Neighborhood plans for a new park at the intersection of Second Street and Shady Boulevard on Thursday, Nov. 3, at City Hall. The project is currently in its design phase, with residents giving feedback on the design and what the park’s name will be. City Council Member Jeff MacIntosh, who represents the Northwest Ward that contains the neighborhood, said it’ll be a small “pocket park” which is inexpensive enough to be covered in the city’s budget without using bond money. He expects construction to begin next year. MacIntosh said there had been calls for years to turn the vacant city-owned lot into a park. It’s surrounded by apartments and homes, and is within walking distance of downtown businesses and attractions. “It’s really ideally located,” said MacIntosh. The design plans by Stimmel Associates showed walking paths, trees, benches, paved areas and a shade structure. It’ll be a “passive park" ideal for activities like walking, sitting, picnics and children playing. The site, which is roughly three fourths of an acre, currently con-

tains little more than grass, a few trees and a historic marker. “It’s really an asset for the community, a green space for the neighborhood,” said Christy Turner, a Stimmel landscape architect. The now vacant lot was the site of the first public waterworks system in the American Colonies in 1778. It tapped into natural springs and used bored logs that were joined together and buried underground to deliver the water a mile away to the town of Salem. George Washington stopped by the waterworks during a visit to the area in 1791. That history will be honored in the park with a colorful pathway denoting the waterworks along with log decorations. The area was known as the Reservation and was undeveloped until its subdivision in 1903, which would eventually lead to it becoming what’s now known as the Holly Avenue Neighborhood in the west end of downtown. The neighborhood has been through several, transitions over the years, but Sharee Fowler, current neighborhood association president, describes it as a close-knit community, which is diverse in both residents and housing, including some affordable housing. She said the park will be a great addition to the neighborhood and the greater city. “We want folks to know it’s intended to be an accessible park to all of the residents in our community,” said Fowler.

Carver ends season with loss against South Stokes JV FOOTBALL

caught the Carver defense off guard and they surrendered a touchdown to the Sauras on that drive to face an early deficit. Carver could not generate any offensive continuity in the first quarter,

due to lack of players then somewhat rebounded to finish 2-4 for the year while only having around 20 players on the roster. Last Thursday night they attempted to close out the season on a high note with a victory against South Stokes, but the final score was 34-20, with Carver on the losing end. From the onset of the game, the Sauras wanted to establish their running game which they did on the first drive of the game. It seemed as though the toughness of South Stokes

which fit right into the hands of the South Stokes offense. By running the ball so effectively, the Sauras accomplished two goals; chewing up time on the clock and tiring the Carver defense, which includes many players that go both ways. Early in the second quarter, South Stokes went ahead 14-0 using the running game once again. Carver looked to have some life following a Sauras fumble. That drive

“Take it one game at a time” and “We want to go 1-0 every week” are normal cliche's that many coaches tell their players year after year. For Mt. Tabor, they not only went 1-0 every week, they did so in impressive fashion in most cases. The Spartans finished the season with a perfect 9-0 record. Earlier this season, head coach Mike Lovelace said he felt this team was special and had the potential to win all of their games if his team bought in to the coaching and played all out.

Mity Mite champs fall as they go for state title

“It’s an unbelievable feeling and these kids have worked their rear ends off,” Lovelace said. “They've earned this and have come a long way since day one.” Mt. Tabor kicked off the season with a hard fought victory over Reagan by the score of 21-7. They proceeded to blow out their next five opponents by very large margins. None of their opponents during that stretch scored more than 12 points while the Spartans scored at least 34 points in every contest. The Spartans were blessed to have a multitude of big play athletes that can play multiple positions. Jaquan Albright who lined up at wide receiver, running back and quarterback made dynamic plays all season long. He

always seemed to be in the right place at the right time or made that last man miss to free him for the long touchdown. Zyquez McMillan was also a bright spot for the Spartans. He seemed to make all the big catches most of the season and was the perfect compliment to Albright. McMillan was very dangerous in the open field rarely being taken down by one defender. Quarterback Andrew Muse was the perfect signal caller for his team. He made clutch throws in many of their games and was not scared to have the ball in his See Mt. Tabor on B2

The Southfort Mity Mite Panthers were just crowned WinstonSalem champions the last Saturday in October. Last Saturday they matched up against the Team Charlotte (TC) Bills for the Division 1 state championship. The Panthers fell to the Bills by the score of 13-7 on a last second play that was overturned by the referee. Panther wide receiver DeMarlo Linville appeared to catch the ball on the last second play but he did not control the ball to the ground and the refs ruled that the pass was incomplete. During the first half of play, neither offense could get on track. The defenses held the upper hand and the first half ended with the score of 0-0. Coming out of the half the Bills started to really grind in and out on the ground and move the ball. Following a long drive the Bills scored first. See Champs fall on B2

was halted by penalties and they were forced to punt. With a little over two minutes left in the half, South Stokes went on the attack once again. Aided by more Carver penalties, South Stokes scored another touchdown to take a 21-0 lead at the half. South Stokes varsity head coach Paul Hall says he was proud of his kids and both teams fought hard during the game. “We knew Carver was kind of slim in numbers, so they have a lot of kids playing both ways and we jumped on them early but they fought right back,” said Hall. “It was a good football game and I’m just proud of these kids. We are excited about the future.” “We are a Wing-T team and the kids have bought into it and at times it’s tough to defend. The kids worked hard all off- season and during practice, so I think it looks good for the future of being a solid football team, too,” said Hall of his team’s running game. It was a tale of two halves for the Yellowjackets as they came out of the locker room and scored on their first drive. Chissar Brooks broke a 50-yard run into

the end zone to put Carver on the board. The Sauras quickly answered on their next drive to put them back up by three scores. Undeterred by the score, the Yellowjackets took the ball right back down the field and scored another touchdown. At the start of the fourth quarter, Carver needed to make a stop on defense to give their offense an opportunity to bring the score closer. Unfortunately for the Yellowjackets, the Sauras scored another touchdown, this time through the air. Carver fought hard to the bitter end and was able to put up a late touchdown when Maurice Reid ran it in from four yards out to make the final score 34-20. Carver head coach Walter Black says this year has been a learning experience and his team has to play better when they step out on the field. “If we could erase all the mistakes we made in the first half, the second half was almost an even game,” said Black. “We’ve got to be able to stop some people, and I was happy we were able to move the ball in the second half running the ball. They were a very good team that came well prepared, well motivated, and they came at us.”

Following their rematcha g a i n s t Reagan, he said his teamexpects to win every game because of theway his team prepares during the week. “Throughout the season I just told the guys to stay together as a unit,” Muse said. “We had our plays down in practice and we rep and we rep and we rep and I just wanted us to stay as a unit. At Mt. Tabor we have expectations and we play to win.” The clash between the Spartans and Reynolds was hyped to be a great matchup between two undefeated teams. Unfortunately, the game was out of reach after the first quarter. Mt. Tabor went on to win by the score of 49-0.

The following week the Spartans had their toughest test of the season as they faced off against another undefeated team, this time it was the Titans of West Forsyth. The game was a back and forth battle between the two teams. West Forsyth looked to have the game in hand but fumbled and the ball was recovered by a Spartan defender who ran it all the way back for the winning score as time expired. To have an undefeated season, you need some balls to bounce your way figuratively and literally and that's exactly what the Spartans got. They ended the season with two more blowout games against Parkland and Davie County to secure the undefeated season. This year was a magical one for the Spartans and coach Lovelace, one they will remember for a lifetime.

BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY THE CHRONICLE

The basketball season is upon us once again. The NBA season just tipped off and now it’s time for the NBA Development League (D-League) to do the same. The Charlotte Hornets will unveil its newly formed D-league team the Greensboro Swarm this season. The NBA D-League is the NBA's official minor league, preparing players, coaches, officials, trainers and front office staff for the NBA while acting as the league's research and development laboratory. The D-League began play during the 2001-02 season and is entering its 16th season. The league currently has 22 singly affiliated teams. The Swarm, an expansion franchise, opened training camp on Wednesday, Nov. 2. Included in the 15-man roster are three affiliate players of the Hornets – Perry Ellis, Rasheed Sulaimon and Mike Tobey. Head Coach Noel Gillespie says he wants to “hit the ground running” with his team and has high expectations not only for the affiliated players but the entire roster.

“Obviously, as you can see it’s all coming together,” said Gillespie. “It was a vision about putting a team in Greensboro, and now we have the actual players, coaches and uniforms. We are so happy to get started.” Gillespie thinks having affiliate players from the Hornets on the roster will help set the tone for the locker room and play on the floor. He says they will help develop the culture on the floor the Hornets are looking for. The Swarm training camp roster is sprinkled with a few veterans along with a lot of youth and draft picks. He says the time his three affiliate players spent with the Hornets will be invaluable. Perry Ellis, Hornets affiliate player, said that playing at a major program like Kansas for four years under head coach Bill Self helped him grow tremendously. He is recently coming off injury and is now 100 percent and eager to get on the court. “The thing I always focus on is making sure I go as hard as I can,” said Ellis. “Since coach was around during training camp with the Hornets, I got the chance to work with him and he's a smart guy. I’m just excited just to play and let’s see what happens.”

Former NBA player and native North Carolinian Damien Wilkins is on the roster. He says he had the opportunity to play overseas for more money but the opportunity to play close to his home was too enticing. Wilkins is the son of 13-year NBA veteran Gerald Wilkins and nephew of NBA All Star Dominique Wilkins. “I probably have more experience than any of these guys, but every day you try to learn and get better,” Wilkins said. “I’m here to provide leadership, also to play and play well and help this team be as good as we can be.” He says his goal is to learn and get better and eventually make it back to the NBA. He said the tricky part is aligning your goal of making it to the NBA with what the team wants to accomplish on the D-league level. The Swarm training camp will last until Nov. 11. Officials will have to trim their roster to 13, including their assigned players from the NBA before the end of camp. The team will play their first game Saturday, Nov. 12, against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants at the Greensboro Coliseum. The schedule for the D-league is 50 games as compared to the 82 game NBA season.

WSSU Rams hold on for win over Fayetteville State SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE

FAY E T T E V I L L E , N.C. – Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) rode the back of sophomore running back Kerrion Moore, who finished the day with 259 allpurpose yards, and the defense rose to the occasion in the second half, as the Rams came away with a 28-21 road win over Fayetteville State (FSU) at Luther “Nick Jeralds

Stadium. After a scoreless and defensive first quarter, Winston-Salem State would finally break the scoreless tie with 1:04 left before halftime, when Rod Tinsley would find an open Anthony Rook in the back of the end zone, for a 15 yard touchdown pass and catch to give the Rams a 7-0 lead. The FSU Broncos would not waste any time in answering the Rams score, as Brian Walker would return the kickoff 99 yards for a score to tie the game with 45 seconds remaining before the half. WSSU would begin their drive with just 37 seconds left before halftime, and on the first play, Rod Tinsley would find an open Demeeko Jones down the middle for a 42yard completion. Two plays later, Tinsley would find Canard Brown in the corner of the end zone for a 33 yard touchdown, to give the Rams a 14-7 advantage heading into the locker room at the half. Coming out for the second half, the Fayetteville State Broncos marched down the field in nine plays, covering 33

yards, before stalling and settling for a 27 yard David Lamb field goal, to cut the WSSU lead to 1410. The Rams would regroup and with 4:36 left in the third quarter, Rod Tinsley would hook up with Kerrion Moore for the play of the game. Tinsley would hit Moore on a crossing route, and Kerrion Moore would do the rest. Moore raced up the right sideline, hurdling a Bronco defender, and finishing off the pass 70 yards later with a touchdown, moving the Rams to a 21-10 lead. Midway through the fourth quarter, Justus Pickett would score from one yard out, and Will Johnson would connect on the PAT to seemingly put the game away with a 28-

28-21 10 advantage. But on this day, in a rivalry game, it’s never over until the clock hits triple zeros. The FSU Broncos would march down the field and with 2:23 left to play, DeMarius Davis would find Marquez Beeks for an eight-yard touchdown pass, to cut the lead to 28-18. The Broncos would attempt and recover the ensuing onside kick, and with 59 second left, David Lamb would hit a 25-yard field goal to cut the lead to 28-21. FSU would attempt a second onside kick, but this time, the Broncos would be called for illegal touching, as they recovered the ball before it went 10 yards, giving the ball to the Rams, and allowing them to run out the clock for the 28-21 win. Kerrion Moore had his best day ever at WSSU, as he finished the game with

122 rushing yards on 19 carries, and Justus Pickett ran for 45 yards on nine carries with one touchdown. Rod Tinsley rushed five times for 25 yards and Xavier Quick also rushed five times for 16 yards. Kerrion Moore led the Rams receivers with seven catches for 116 yards and one ESPN Top Ten touchdown pass and catch. Moore caught a crossing pass, and hurdled a Bronco defender and raced 70 yards for a touchdown down the right sideline. Demeeko Jones finished with three catches for 45 yards, and Canard Brown had two catches for 40 yards and one touchdown. Anthony Rook finished with three catches for 30 yards and one touchdown. Quincy Jackson (18 yds), and Michael Benis (2 yds) each finished with one catch. Cameron Sullivan led the Ram defenders with 11 tackles and 1.5 tackles for a loss, and Jarrell Bright had nine tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss and two sacks. Jayron Rankin had an outstanding day, finishing with eight tackles, two tackles for a loss and an interception. Braxton Daye seven tackles and 0.5 tackle for a loss, while Tyrell Flemming had five tackles, Xavier Gregory also had five tackles 1.5 tackles for a loss and one tackle and one pass breakup. PJ Clyburn also picked up five tackles and De’Andre Blevins had four tackles, as did Amyl Smith and Jack Nimmons. Smith also picked up 0.5 sack and 0.5 tackles for a loss. Winston-Salem State will immediately turn their attention to the CIAA Championship Game, and its opponent, Bowie State University. Bowie State defeated Elizabeth City State University, 56-7 on Saturday to secure the Northern Division.

WSSU and Bowie State University will compete for the CIAA Championship crown on Saturday, Nov. 12, at Salem Stadium in Salem, Virginia. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m., and the game will air nationwide on the ASPiRE Network.

women got together and reflected on the good deeds and people she has helped over the years and thought it would be nice to honor her in some way. The initial planning for the event started in August and the women wanted to put together a modest gathering of family and close friends. But as Joy Dodd explained, it just expanded from there. “We have been saying we wanted to do something for a while,” said Dodd. “It grew and it became larger than what we were expecting it to be. We crafted all of our little ideas and pulled everything together and this is the end result, so God is good. It’s a testament to the training she has given us that we can work under pressure and get things accomplished for the Glory of God.”

“I used to allow politicians to just come in on Sunday's and just speak, but the people were still not learning who they were,” Mack said. “What I tried to do this year was to engage the people to know more about the policies that they represent so we will know who we are voting for. Prior to Dr. Barber taking the pulpit, gospel recording artist Paul Porter took the stage and gave his testimony of his struggles and how he overcame them. He then performed

The occasion was filled with many people whom Galloway has touched in some way, shape or form. The difficult part was keeping this a secret from Galloway so Dodd, Johnson and Davis enlisted Galloway's husband, Robert, and son Anthony to keep things quiet. They were both happy to assist in any capacity to help the women. “It’s a great turnout and I think it’s a great event to honor a wonderful person, and I couldn't be more happy for her,” said Anthony Galloway. Robert Galloway added, “You can look around and see the love in this building, all love. The things people said about her today were to be expected because I have lived with her for 50 years, so I know the kind of person she is.” The service started with Scripture and prayer to

for the congregation, which brought everyone to their feet. Dr. Barber’s message of “We better vote” was thought provoking. He referenced President Woodrow Wilson and the similarities with a candidate who is running during this presidential election. He touched on how Wilson made illegitimate claims about blacks during the Reconstruction era and how a candidate in today's race is doing the same. He did not name the candidate, but the message was received. “When people work this hard to keep you from

The measurements of the city mimic those of the inner sanctuary in the tabernacle and temple built by King Solomon (1 Kings 6:20), both were perfect squares and both were intended for God’s habitation. The glory of the New Jerusalem is portrayed in verses 22 thru 27. There is no temple in the New Jerusalem because God and the Lamb are the temple. The presence of God fills the entire new heaven and earth. The habitants of the city will be people from all nations all kinds of people who are now simply “people of God.” And all have their “names written in the Lamb’s book of life.”(verse 27).

Bishop Stephen Williams of Goodwill Baptist Church referred to Galloway as “the essence of grace.” Kyndal Dodd, recipient of the 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award, sponsored by Gamma Phi Delta Sorority, sang a beautiful song for Galloway. The essay she submitted to win the award detailed her admiration for Galloway and how much she looked up to her. After the reflections was a wonderful meal for everyone to enjoy and the speaker for the evening which was Pastor Marcy Jessep of Greater Love Fellowship Ministries.

For Your Consideration: How do we evaluate whether we will be residents in the heavenly city? Does belief in the New Jerusalem help to strengthen our faith?

Life’s Application: Reading Revelations can be confusing. Reading of the seven churches and all the symbolism associated there can also be intimidating. Knowing that Revelations is not a probable depiction of future occurrences, but a look at what is truly destined to actually happen should in and of itself give us pause. There are lots of bad or destructive things revealed in John’s apocalyptic writings, but there is also an enormous save from sin and destruction provided. The choice is now and has always been ours to make. Look at the seven churches … which one reflects your membership? Would you like to live in the New Jerusalem?

about how strong Galloway's faith was and how she is a “modern day woman of God.” Morning Star head Pastor Rev. Dr. Dennis Leach Sr. said the event was a testimony to Galloway's ability to connect with people in an intimate and meaningful way. Galloway served as interim pastor prior to Leach's arrival. She said she was totally shocked and honored by the turnout of the evening. “You know I was really speechless. When I came in the door, I thought I was coming for one thing and I couldn't understand why,” said Galloway. “I am just overwhelmed and overjoyed because I had no idea this was going on. I am so appreciative. You don't know the impact you have on people as you go through life. I can’t believe this is happening.” skew the numbers. He says as of this past Sunday, 95 percent of his church has voted early and he wanted to make sure as a church “their faith is connected to their walk to the polls.”

Opal Lee hoping to make it a national holiday BY TEVIN STINSON THE CHRONICLE

Ninety-year-old Opal Lee is on a mission to get President Barack Obama’s attention before he leaves office by walking 140,000 miles. Lee is walking from her hometown of Forth Worth, Texas, to Washington, D.C., to hand deliver a petition to Obama demanding Juneteenth be made a national holiday. “I’m going to walk right up there and ask the president and members of Congress what’s wrong with them,” she continued. “I see Juneteenth as a unifier. All kinds of people came together to free slaves and we need to know this. There is no reason why it should not be a national holiday,” Lee said.

PEPPERS Mildred Strickland Peppers, a God fearing and deeply devoted wife, mother, sister and friend, met her bridegroom on November 7, 2016. Mildred was born on June 6, 1948 to the late Samuel and Frances Strickland. Educated in the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Public School System and graduated from Albert H. Anderson High School in 1968. Mildred attended Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) where she received her B.S. in History. While at WSSU, she pledged Zeta Phi Beta Sorority where she became affectionately known as "Skinner". On the yard, she also met her "diamond", the late Ronnie Carl "Pepp" Peppers. The Skinner and Pepp union produced three beautiful girls, Frances Valencia, Blanche Yvonne and Joneice Conchetta. Out of this love grew the marriages of Blanche to Captain Darren A.

Celebrated annually on June 19 in 45 states, Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. In order to reach the White House Lee, is walking 10 miles each day. Since beginning her journey on Sept. 1, she has already visited 10 different states and 23 cities. Along the way, she is sharing the history of Juneteenth with anyone willing to listen. Last week, Lee made a quick stop in Old Salem to inspire locals to sign the petition that needs 100,000 signatures. While sitting in St. Phillips Moravian Church where the end of slavery was announced to local slaves in 1865, Lee said she dreams one day this country will have a Juneteenth theme park that will educate the young and old. “Our nation is theme park happy,” she laughed. “So why not have a

Juneteenth theme park to educate this generation and generations to come?” “I want everyone to know what people went through to have this Juneteenth celebration.” City human relations director Wanda AllenAbraha, who helps coordinate the local Juneteenth Celebration said, she was inspired by Lee’s commitment to the cause. “We’re all amazed by her drive, and passion to make this cross-country journey,” she said. “It was a real honor to be in the presence of someone so passionate about preserving the history of black people in this country.” Lee is expected to reach the nations’ capital next month.
