EcoVolt to begin operations in East Bend

KAREN MARTIN

Associate Editor [email protected]

EcoVolt Power Corporation, an eco-friendly green automotive battery manufacturer, announced on Thursday that it will open a facility in East Bend. The company's Chairman and CEO Mark Leininger said that the East Bend location is a central location in the eastern United States and, after over a year of searching for a facility that would meet the company needs, they chose the Yadkin County location. "Bobby Todd with the Yadkin County Chamber and Economic Development worked diligently with us to find a location," Leininger said. The company plans to create approximately 60 jobs and invest $20 million over the next three years. Gov. Bev Perdue was on hand at the facility Thursday to welcome the company to North Carolina and announce the $200,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund that was given to EcoVolt as part of an incentive plan.

"The fund provides financial assistance to attract business projects that create jobs. Companies must meet job creation and investment performance standards to receive the money," Perdue said. "Yadkin County has a highly skilled workforce and people eager to work," Leininger said. "Our company will most likely hold a job fair mid-summer for those wishing to obtain a position with us. Our average annual salaries will vary, but will be slightly higher than the average annual Yadkin County salary. "It is our expectation to be up and operational and shipping out batteries in the third quarter of 2011." The company's product will be manufactured at different locations with the molded casings of the new batteries being made at plants in Ohio and Kentucky for the first approximate year of operation in North Carolina. The casing will then be sent to the Yadkin County facility to have the electrolytes added and charged, and the batteries labeled and readied for shipping. "The batteries will be offered at a premium price and have a flat three-year warranty with See EAST, page 5

Low-income consumers in CenturyLink service areas may qualify for assistance programs

Low-income consumers in North Carolina may qualify for assistance programs that will reduce the cost of initial telephone installation and basic monthly service, according to a recent announcement from CenturyLink. The company is spreading the word about the programs so consumers who potentially qualify for the services may apply for them. The assistance programs, known as Link-Up and Lifeline, are available to qualifying consumers in every U.S. state (territory and commonwealth). Link-Up helps consumers pay the initial installation costs of getting telephone service. The amount of the discounts varies by state and reduces up to onehalf of the initial hook-up fee, up to $30, for qualified households. Lifeline provides certain discounts each month on phone bills for qualified subscribers. Qualifications for participation also vary by state. States with their own programs have their own criteria. In states that rely solely on the federal program, the subscriber must participate in any one of the following programs: Medicaid, food stamps, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance or the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), Head Start, the National School Lunch Program's Free Lunch Program, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) or if the household annual gross income is at or below 135 percent of the federal poverty level. Residents of American Indian and Alaskan Native tribal lands may qualify for an additional $25 of enhanced Lifeline support monthly and up to $70 of expanded Link-Up support beyond current levels. An individual living on tribal lands may also qualify for Lifeline and Link-Up discounts if he or she participates in one of the above programs or the Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance or Tribally Administered Temporary Assistance to Needy Families. To find out more about the Lifeline and Link-Up programs, log on to the www.lifeline.gov site. Individuals living in a CenturyLink service area should call 800-366-8201 or visit www.centurylink.com/lifeline to inquire about eligibility.

Starmount Students participate in environmental science competition

The Aurorean Chipmunks ­ FFA Team from Starmount High School participated and placed 4th in the Area 2 Envirothon 13 County Event held at the ED McGee Natural Resource Center in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Team members are: Kayla Akers, Catherine Carston, Alex Allgood, Buddy Flay, and Dylon Wagoner with team advisors Rick Seipel and Cody Allen. More than 52 teams' middle and high school students competed in five-member teams or less at the event for prizes. The top seven Middle School teams and the Top seven high school teams advance to the state competition on April 29-30 at Cedar Rock Park in Alamance County. The winning high school team from the state level advances to the national competition with an all expense paid trip. The Envirothon is the most widely recognized hands-on environmental education program in the nation. Middle and high school students immerse themselves in a year-long learning process that combines in-class curriculum with handson field experiences facilitated by resource professionals such as soil scientists, foresters and wildlife specialists. This intense training culminates in a competition where teams are tested in five subject areas: Soils/Landuse, Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife, and a current environmental Issue. Scores determine winning placements. "Envirothon students often become serious stewards of our natural resources and advocates for a healthy plant" said John Peeler, North Carolina's Envirothon Committee Chairman. "What bigger legacy can we leave?" Locally, the Envirothon competition is coordinated by Soil and Water conservation districts and sponsored by the North Carolina Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts.

AGRICULTURE NEWS

Dig Into Local food show puts northwestern N.C. farmers in spotlight

Join northwestern N.C. farmers at the Dig Into Local food show on Saturday, April 16, at the Hayes Performing Arts Center in Blowing Rock. Area farmers who sell directly to the public through roadside stands, farmers markets, Community Supported Agriculture subscriptions and online sales will offer goods for sampling and selling from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Farmers also will be taking orders for later crops, or signing households up for CSA shares coming this summer. Admission to the food show is free. "Agriculture is the leading industry in North Carolina, generating more than $74 billion for the economy, and when a farmer sells directly to a customer, both parties win," said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. "The customer gets the freshest, locally grown product at the peak of flavor, and the farmer returns more profits to his or her farm." The Dig Into Local show will be held under a giant tent outside the Hayes Center. It is taking place in conjunction with the Fire on the Rock cooking competition as part of the Blue Ridge Wine and Food Festival. Bluegrass band The Grass Cats will perform at the food show. Producers wishing to participate in the show should contact Dee Bartlett with the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services at 919-707-3106. Participation is limited to North Carolina farmers who sell directly to the public. There is no fee to participate. Dig Into Local is a series of food shows produced by the department's Got to Be NC market development program to promote local fare. The shows are funded by a grant from the Golden LEAF Foundation, and are intended to increase the sales of locally grown farm goods and raise the profitability of farming through direct sales. The first show was held last year in Raleigh, with additional shows this month in Asheville and Wilmington.

Strawberries undaunted by cold weather

The recent cold spell may have slowed the arrival of strawberries, but it has done nothing to diminish the quality and quantity growers expect this year, said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. "Growers across the state have reported that the warm winter in mid-March had strawberries ahead of their normal production schedule, but thankfully the recent cold snap has only slowed their progress down slightly and has not caused loss of berries," Troxler said. "Growers have used row covers and irrigation to protect the plants and will continue to do so until nighttime temperatures warm up." Growers are expecting an excellent crop, and barring an extended cold snap, consumers should find plenty of North Carolina berries starting around mid-April, said Heather Lifsey, marketing specialist with the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Consumers in the eastern part of the state can expect to find strawberries ready around April 11, while those in the Piedmont should be ready for picking by April 15. In the western part of the state, growers estimate that date strawberries should be ready to pick on April 17. Weather will continue to play a role in when strawberries are ready, so Troxler suggests calling your local farmer before visiting to see if berries are ready. To find a strawberry farm near you, go to www.ncfarmfresh.com or contact Lifsey at 919-707-3127 for a copy of the 2011 Strawberry Directory.

N.C. farmers intend to plant more acres of cotton, sweet potatoes, wheat this year

North Carolina farmers say they will plant more acres of cotton, sweet potatoes and wheat this year compared with 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Prospective Plantings report released today. Farmers intend to plant less corn, soybeans and peanuts, the report said. Cotton growers intend to plant 750,000 acres this year, 36 percent higher than last year's acreage and the most since 2006. "With cotton prices hovering close to $2 a pound, it's not surprising to see farmers planning to grow more of it this year," said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. Wheat already is in the ground, and its 700,000 acres represent a 40 percent increase over last year's total and match the 2009 amount. The dip in wheat acreage in 2010 was the result of poor field conditions in the fall of 2009, Troxler said. "It was too wet to plant. But this past fall, conditions were good and wheat prices are still strong," he said. Farmers intend to plant 60,000 acres of sweet potatoes, up 5,000 from last year. North Carolina leads the nation in sweet potato production, and acreage has increased each year since 2005. Troxler attributes the growth to higher demand for sweet potatoes, both domestically and internationally. Acreage of flue-cured tobacco is forecast to increase modestly this year, to 168,000 acres. Burley acres will remain unchanged at 2,300. With cotton acreage growing, something had to give, which explains the six percent decrease in soybean acreage and seven percent drop in peanut acreage, Troxler said. Corn acreage could drop by two percent. "We basically ran out of acres for soybeans, peanuts and corn," he said. "There are only so many acres out there that can go into producing field crops, so you've got to have a tradeoff. "I think we're going to max out our available acreage this year," Troxler said. "Farmers might break out whatever ground they think they can do something with." Troxler pointed out that weather, input costs and changes in commodity prices still could affect the acreage planted. "We'll know more June 30, when the next USDA acreage report comes out," he said. The report is available online at www.ncagr.gov/stats/release/CropRelease03.pdf.

Invasive Plant Awareness Week in North Carolina

Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler wants you to think about kudzu and other invasive plants this week, because it's the first Invasive Plants Awareness Week in North Carolina. Troxler also hopes you'll take note of the critical role the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services plays in preventing the introduction, establishment and spread of all invasive species in the state. In fact, he would like it if word of his department's work spread like, well, kudzu. Invasive species include weeds, insects and diseases not native to the state that have the capacity to greatly harm agricultural and natural resources. Examples include kudzu, hydrilla and beach vitex. Estimates place the cost of invasive species in the United States at more than $137 billion each year. "The least costly way to control invasive species is to prevent them from being introduced and becoming established," Troxler said. "As we've seen with kudzu, once invasive species are established and begin to spread, it's much harder to get rid of them." The department's Plant Industry Division coordinates preventive programs to assist plant nurseries, garden centers, farmers and the public in guarding against the impacts of invasive species. As part of its monitoring activities, the division's staff registers and inspects more than 1,800 plant nurseries and nearly 3,000 retail locations that sell plant material. These inspections ensure plants and related material produced and sold in North Carolina remain free of invasive species that might trigger plant quarantines, Troxler said. For more information about invasive species in North Carolina, along with ways you can help prevent their introduction and establishment in your area, visit www.ncinvasivespecies.org.

ESTATE AUCTION

Celebrate Public Health Month April is Public Health Month

Statewide, April marks the time when all health departments across the state celebrate themselves and continue the quiet miracles they perform daily by getting their communities involved with activities and disseminating information about the role of public health in their communities. This year's National Public Health Campaign centers on educating people that Safety is NO Accident. Taking actions like wearing protective gear, use of seatbelts, proper installation of child safety seats, wearing a helmet, and proper storage of cleaning supplies all help promote the prevention of injuries. Public Health works with their communities to prevent and promote healthy living. The activities that Health Departments do on a daily basis often go unnoticed to many people. If you haven't realized it, Public Health infuses into many aspects of your day by way of our State's General Statutes. In each county, you will find that Public Health is: Identifying and working to reduce the greatest health risks; Detecting, investigating and preventing the spread of communicable diseases, like TB; Inspecting restaurants and other institutions that provide food or lodging to ensure food is safe to eat and facilities are clean and sanitary; Helping families plan for and have the healthiest pregnancies possible, so that all our children are born healthy; Helping residents learn how to improve and protect their health and the health of their families. Local Public Health Departments strive to provide quality service to unique needs of their communities through strategic research and evidence for the most successful outcomes.

What kind of paper money and why?

What is money? One on one I asked that question again recently when I heard that State Representative Glen Bradley had introduced House Bill 301 to "study whether this State should adopt a currency to serve as an alternative to the currency distributed by the Federal Reserve System in the event of a major breakdown of the Federal Reserve D.G. System." I have never understood Martin what money is, even though I studied economics at Davidson under one of the college's great teachers, Dr. Charles Ratliff. A few months ago we heard that the Federal Reserve has embarked on a program buying $600 billion in treasury bonds. Where did it get the money to buy those bonds? It simply "created" the additional money and put 600 billion new dollars into circulation. What is money? It is what the Federal Reserve says it is. One of the Federal Reserve's jobs is to determine how much money the country needs to have in circulation and then, if necessary, to create more money to meet those needs. What backs up the currency that the Federal Reserve creates? Not gold or silver. Take a look at a one-dollar bill. There is no promise to pay in gold or any other precious metal. There is simply a statement that the bill is "legal tender for all debts, public and private." The only thing that backs up the Federal Reserve currency that we use today is trust in the Federal Reserve. Of course, people like Representative Glen Bradley do not trust the Federal Reserve or its ability to provide a stable currency for our country. I confess that I shared a little bit of Representative Bradley's concern. Something did not seem right about the Federal Reserve "magicking up" billions of dollars of new money, just because it thinks we need it. Just when I needed it, a new book came along to help me begin to understand why we need the kind of flexible money supply the Federal Reserve provides rather than a limited gold-based standard. The book is "Moneymakers: The Wicked Lives and Surprising Adventures of Three Notorious Counterfeiters" by Ben Tarnoff. Ironic, isn't it, that a book about counterfeiters helped me understand the value of our system of paper money? The "Moneymakers" story of counterfeiters entertains with its tales of the antics of very energetic and creative criminals. Along the way, it gives its readers a history of paper money in America. Colonial American governments were trendsetters. They issued paper money long before their English overlords. The colonies could get very little coinage or "hard currency" from England. Without sufficient money in circulation, the colonial economy struggled. So the colonial governments printed notes that were "promises" to pay in coinage or precious metals at some later date. These crude notes were open invitations to counterfeiters, but they nevertheless served the colonial economy well. When "hard money" purists tried to force Massachusetts to redeem all its paper money, the economy suffered. The issuance of great amounts of paper money by Congress and the states during the Revolution and the resulting inflation led to Constitutional prohibitions on government-issued paper money. But when money was needed, governments found a way. They simply gave banks the authority to issue paper money. At times during the 1800s there were hundreds of banks across the country issuing paper money. The value of each bill was dependent on the soundness of the issuing bank, and the resulting confusion, though a boon to counterfeiters, hurt commerce. That confusion was one reason for the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, and ultimately for its assigned responsibility to manage the country's currency system--for better or worse. Considering the options--like Representative Bradley's separate state currencies--it is for the better. ------ D.G.

When we measure the impact of a hero, it helps to consider the difference between worship and admiration. Worship promotes an illusion of perfection in one person and relies on a belief in our inherent inferiority to keep the myth alive. Admiration, on the other hand, closes the distance. A person admits to overcoming everyday stumbles and major obstacles of ordinary life, and we're inspired to find our own courage. Well, why not? we think. Let's give it a go. Geraldine Ferraro, who died last week at 75, never tried to hide her real-life struggles or human imperfections. As a result, those of us who admired her -- and there were so many -- dared to see our own potential in her success. In 1984, the former stay-at-home mother became the first woman of a major party to be nominated for vice president of the United States. In a New York Times video interview recorded in 2007 and posted after her death, Ferraro described walking out to the podium at the Democratic National Convention and being surprised to see that most in the thunderous crowd were women. Ferraro said she later learned that many of the male delegates gave their floor passes to their female alternates so they could experience the historic moment. I was a stay-at-home mom in my late 20s wondering whether I'd ever again write for a living when Ferraro came to Cleveland during the presidential campaign. By then, I already was holding on to many of the particulars of her life: Before her career in Congress, she was a teacher and then a lawyer who put her career on hold until the youngest of her three children was old enough to go to school. "I did all the things other homemakers do," she told The Plain Dealer in May 1984. "I took care of my kids, participated in the local women's club, taught school one afternoon a week. I car pooled. ... Being a mother is not an easy job." It was as if she were speaking straight to me. Ferraro was bravely pro-choice, even though she was a devout Catholic and made clear that she never would have an abortion. When she returned to Cleveland on the last day of the campaign, anti-choice hecklers tried to shout down her speech. A Plain Dealer columnist described her calm response: "I know you want to make your point," she told them. "It's made. I believe in free speech, but just give me an opportunity to speak this morning. ... If you're concerned about life, it really must go and continue for those who are born as well. I accept your view. Please allow me to present mine." It's one thing to be brave when the whole world is watching and you have the force of a political party behind you. It's another thing altogether when your battle is personal and your life hangs in the balance. In 1998, after a losing bid for the U.S. Senate, Ferraro was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Doctors said she had, at most, five years to live. She outran that prognosis by seven years. Ferraro went public with her cancer to champion those who didn't have her resources. She testified before Congress and, in 2007, was interviewed on the "Today" show as a $1,000-a-week drug dripped through an IV into her arm. "It just is a very, very expensive thing to do, very expensive thing to do, and that's the one thing that bothers me," Ferraro said. "Having to come in twice a week ... doesn't bother me. What bothers me is that what's available to me is not available to every person who has cancer in this country and it should be." I met Geraldine Ferraro only once, in the summer of 1984, when she came to Cleveland for a speech. I wanted my 9-year-old son, Andy, to be a part of history, so there we were, standing in a crowd of hundreds, waiting for the vice presidential candidate to appear. As soon as I saw her, I did the mother thing: I pushed Andy in front of me, hoping she'd see him. Ferraro did the mother thing, too: She stopped, grabbed his outstretched hand and leaned down to ask his name. As she walked away, Andy turned to me and whispered, "My knees feel weak." I pulled him close and felt a whole new kind of strong. Plain Dealer news researcher Jo Ellen Corrigan contributed to this column.

THIS DAY

1865 - John Wilkes Booth, a well-known actor, was permitted upstairs at Ford's Theatre and shot President Abraham Lincoln in the head. Lincoln died at 7:22 a.m. the next day. 1894 - The kinetoscope was demonstrated by its inventor, Thomas Alva Edison, in New York City. A viewer that held 50 feet of film -about 13 seconds worth -- showed images of Annie Oakley and Buffalo Bill. The demonstration was actually called the first peep show, as one had to peep into the device to see what was on the film. Movies were not projected on a screen at that time. 1902 - J.C. (James Cash) Penney opened his first store -- in Kemmerer Wyoming. In partnership with Thomas M. Callahan and William Guy Johnson, Penney named the store Golden Rule. 1910 - The Philadelphia Athletics, under manager Connie Mack, played the Washington Senators in what became a most historic game. This game was not only the season opener; but also, the first time a United States President had thrown out the first ball. The president was William Howard Taft. 1912 - The Royal Mail Steamship Titanic of the White Star Line struck an iceberg at approximately 11:40 p.m. The great ship, on its maiden voyage, sank just under three hours later. 1,517 passengers were lost at sea. 1912 - Frederick Rodman Law was a stunt man and became the first man to intentionally jump from the Brooklyn Bridge in New York without intending to take his own life. He was OK after the leap. 1935 - Babe Ruth played his first game for the National League in Fenway Park in Boston, MA. This time, he was playing for the Boston Braves, not his old Red Sox. Ruth was in his last year of pro ball in the major leagues. In this, his last season, Ruth played only 28 games, getting 13 hits and six home runs, before hanging

There's a Kind of Hush. It was a two-sided hit, with the flip-side, No Milk Today, also receiving considerable play. 1968 - Bob Goalby won the Masters Golf Tournament after Roberto DeVicenzo signed an incorrect scorecard. DeVicenzo signed for a score higher than his actual score on the 17th hole (a par 4 when he actually made a birdie 3). The rules say that you have to stick to the higher score, once you sign for it. 1969 - This was a night of firsts at the 41st Annual Academy Awards ceremony. For the first time, the happenings at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles were beamed to TV audiences worldwide. For the first time, there was a tie for Best Actress.

They will not be the average discount batteries sold in stores today. We expect to be able to produce the entire battery here in East Bend within three years." In talking about the technology of the environmentally friendly batteries, Hoover said that all parts of the batteries are recyclable. "The molded casing, the lead and the sulfuric acid to make the batteries are all recyclable materials," Hoover said. "When the casings arrive here at the East Bend facility, the majority of the work will be automated. "The batteries use less lead and acid than other batteries and have a unique interior construction," he said. "They are smart batteries that recognize the amount of energy needed and regulate the energy to start a vehicle. "There will be different sizes available in the batteries," Hoover said.

Yadkin County Courthouse phone numbers to change

Effective March 31, 2011, Yadkin County Courthouse phone numbers will change. Due to an updated statewide telephone system and a new statewide calling plan, many counties across the state are receiving updated phone numbers. For Yadkin County Courthouse, the new telephone numbers are: · Clerk of Superior Court ­ 336-679-3600; fax line ­ 336679-3601. · District Attorney's Office ­ 336-679-3610: fax line ­ 336679-3611 · Magistrates Office ­ 336-679-3619; fax line ­ 336-679-3620 Once the new telephone numbers are in effect, an automated intercept message will be put into place to inform callers of the new phone number. The court offices mentioned above will be on an auto attendant. This is something that has become a necessity due to cuts in the State budget. These cuts are causing agencies to use different resources in order to serve the public. This auto attendant will automatically answer the telephone and the caller may choose from a menu of choices to receive assistance. About the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts (NCAOC) The N.C.

MARKET:

Continued from page 1 Manager Joseph Sloop said. "The town will be leasing the property to the farmer's market for $1 per year. We will be adding an office and a restroom facility for buyers and vendors with grant money we received from RAFI (Rural Advancement Foundation International). "The grant is a $30,000 matching grant that will enable us to have a permanent area for the farmer's market. This will allow Yadkin County produce and products to be offered to Yadkin County residents fresh from the gardens of the county." Sloop continued to say that a pedestrian bridge between the Yadkinville park and the farmer's market was donated by Jim and Betty Driver. "This particular parcel of land is nine acres," Sloop said. "The farmer's market is phase two of the park. By locating the market here, we can begin the remaining phase of the park. This will also help to make the property more attractive." Yadkin County Planning Director Christopher Ong said, "This is a good economic tool. People look at agri-tourism especially in counties like this as a growing demand. It also helps expand on the viticulture industry and we're hoping to attract more people interested in the wine industry to the area." Keith spoke of how people are becoming more concerned about where their food comes from and who grows it. "Local foods are a tremendous initiative," Keith said. "People are more interested in who grows their food and how it's grown." The grand opening for the new farmer's market is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3. The market will be open from 4-6 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday and from 7-11 a.m. on Saturday mornings. "The history of Yadkin County is steeped in agriculture," Sloop said. "There is no permanent farmer's market in Yadkin County and we're very pleased to have this opportunity to bring one to the residents and farmers in the county." Keith said that now there

SCC offers required course for handling lead-based paint

Surry Community College is offering an 8-hour course required for obtaining state certification to oversee certain renovation projects that involve lead-based paint. The certification is mandated under a state program enacted last year for disturbing lead-based paint in homes and child-occupied facilities. SCC is one of five community colleges in the state accredited to offer the Renovator Initial Course by the NC Department of Health and Human Services. The course will be offered two times each month at the Elkin Center. Tuition is $95, which includes the cost of books. Tuition for North Carolina residents 65 and older is $30. The course is offered in conjunction with the state's new Lead Program for Renovation, Repair and Painting. The program was initiated in response to federal regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency intended to protect building occupants and children from leadbased paint hazards. "Realizing the number of people in our area who need to take the RRP class, SCC began seeking accreditation in August 2010. After a long process, we are pleased to have received accreditation in March of this year," said Terri Cockerham, SCC's coordinator of personal enrichment programs. "Our class will give local painters and contractors a convenient and affordable option for this important training." The new requirements apply to renovation, repair and painting work done for compensation in housing and child occupied facilities built before 1978, including child-care facilities and schools with students under the age of six. Firms performing renovations on these facilities must be certified by the program, use a certified renovator on each project, and train its employees to follow lead-safe work practices. Pre-registration is required for the SCC course. For registration information, contact Sonnie Hardy at 336-386-3229 or Terri Cockerham at 336-386-3244.

One in four worried about having money for food

One in four Americans is worried about having enough money to put food on the table in the next year, according to a national hunger survey by Hart Research Associates, commissioned last month by the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) and Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE: TSN). Another key finding is that many Americans are unaware of how serious hunger is in their own communities. The online survey was initiated as part of Tyson's "KNOW Hunger" campaign, which is focused on helping more people understand and actively address the problem of hunger in the U.S. The survey found that 24 percent of respondents indicated they are very or fairly concerned about being able to afford food at some point in the next year, while 31 percent are slightly worried. The survey, which is one of the largest and most comprehensive ever conducted on attitudes and perceptions of hunger, also revealed that many Americans may be underestimating the seriousness of hunger in their own community. Two-thirds of the people surveyed rated hunger as a more serious problem nationally than in their own community. Yet according to a report published in 2010 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Economic Research Service, 14.7 percent of American households are food insecure at least some time during the year, the highest recorded levels since 1995, when the first national food security survey was conducted. While more than one third of those surveyed indicated they have a direct connection to hunger, 59 percent of respondents were surprised to learn the parents of hungry children in the U.S. typically have full-time jobs. A majority also assumed hunger is concentrated in urban areas, however, according to USDA, hunger is slightly higher among rural households than the national average. "The research shows that the vast majority of Americans believe that hunger is a problem for the country, and it also shows they are committed to the belief that no one should go hungry," said Jim Weill, FRAC President. "No community is free from hunger, but the survey demonstrates very broad and deep support for efforts from both the public and private sectors to implementing solutions to this continuing challenge for our nation." "As we've become involved in hunger relief over the past ten years, engaging our employees, customers and communities, we've seen evidence of what this survey confirms," said John Tyson, chairman of Tyson Foods. "People do think hunger is a serious issue. They're willing to become involved. But they also need to be shown how it directly impacts their own communities. We believe creating more awareness creates more involvement."

OLLIE VELOUR MESSICK A funeral service will be conducted at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 14, 2011. Burial will follow in the Sunrise Cemetery. BONNIE MAE DOVER HARRISON A funeral service will be conducted at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 16, 2011. Burial will follow at Union Grove Baptist Church Cemetery.

STORE:

Continued from page 1 ing but quality items of furniture and household items that may not be of interest to the owner anymore, but that someone else has a need or desire for." Matthews is planning to expand her business toward the holidays by adding quality gifts and gift baskets for those who would like to purchase a gift without driving to Winston-Salem to find a quality product. "I have some new items in the store now, especially in handmade jewelry," she said. "The jewelry is made by a very good friend and although it is not cheap is made of sterling and stones. I myself have made unique pin cushions using old antique cups and saucers and individualized designs." Matthews also offers an alterations service for those needing it. "Anyone who walks in to the shop may find me enjoying and learning my new hobby, quilting," she said. "I've taken sections of beautiful old quilts and framed them for unique pieces of art." Matthew says her life is all about her grandchildren and that she has one in just about every school throughout the county.

"My grandchildren are my life," Matthews said. "They are my life-line and my heart. There's nothing better than being a grandparent." Matthews will offer consignment service to residents who bring quality items to the shop. Anyone interested in using the consignment can call for an appointment. "Consignments are for 30 days at full price then reduced to half price for the next 30 days. If items are not picked up after the 60 days, they will be donated to non-profit organizations. "Any clothing that can be used by the elderly will be donated to the rest homes," Matthews said. "There is such a need there for men's and women's clothing sometimes. "For our name brand items in children's clothing such as the Justice brand, an item might sell for $7," she said. "I plan to carry furniture, shoes, accessories and household items as well." Pollyanna's will be open from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturdays. For an appointment to meet with Matthews about using her consignment service contact her at 336-406-6027.

Devin Doss, laid down the sacrifice bunt, which moved the runners to second and third bases. After Doss' bunt, Brittan Baity stepped to the plate and launched a three-run bomb over the center field fence. "These guys are hitting it back up the box. All their home runs are left-center to right-center, which is what we want," Rutledge said. After Baity's three-run blast, Travis Holden got his turn. Holden connected on a pitch and fired a solo shot over the center field fence as well, giving Forbush the 4-0 lead. Caleb Brawley followed Holden's home run with a single to the infield. Next at bat, Grayson Fulp, safely reached first on a walk, which brought Nathaniel Hodges to the plate. With an eerily similar set up to Baity's homerun, Hodges crushed the third Forbush home run over the center field fence, putting the Falcons up 7-0, with just one out in the inning. North's defense responded by getting the final two outs of the inning with a fly out to the outfield and a play at first base. After a quick three outs in the bottom of the fourth,

Falcons no-hit Vikings in 12-0 rout

Ram softball explodes for 14 runs, slug their way past Huskies

STAFF REPORTS

All season the Forbush Falcons have proven they have a strong bullpen, and a strong presence at the plate. In last Friday afternoon's 12-0 shutout win over the North Wilkes Vikings, three different Falcons hit home runs, while Josh Faircloth held the Vikings hitless for the entire game. Faircloth had four strikeouts and only walked two Viking batters during the five-inning game. "We messed around during the first couple innings. During the third and fourth inning we settled in and the guys started seeing a couple more pitches. The guys are hitting it well and hitting to the opposite field," said Falcon Coach Taylor Rutledge. During the first two innings neither team could connect on pitches, which resulted in short at-bats for both squads. That all changed during the top of the fourth inning. Dustin Moore and Brice Merritt each had a single, allowing them to safely reach first and second bases, respectively. Next at bat for Forbush,

Josh Faircloth winds up for the pitch against the Vikings. Faircloth pitched a no-hitter against the Vikings last Friday. Forbush's offense picked up right where it left off in the top of the fifth. Devin Doss got on first with a lead-off single to left field. Holden followed Doss, safely reaching second base on an error in the outfield. After Holden got to second, Brawley safely reached first base on a walk to load the bases. Viking pitcher, Jonathan Mabe, walked Grayson Fulp which brought home Doss. Nathaniel Hodges hit an RBI single to left field on his next at bat, which scored Alex Mitchell. Following the trend, Ben Temple drove in a pair of runs when he smashed a single to the outfield for the final two runs of the game. "We're just trying to keep the guys up beat and trying to keep getting better," Rutledge said. The win improved the Falcons to 10-1 in the MVAC and 11-5 overall. The Falcons will face conference top-dog Wilkes Central on Friday before facing rival Starmount next Tuesday. Forbush 0 0 0 7 5- 12 11 0 North Wilkes 000 00- 0 03

All season, the Rams have been able to squeak out wins against the competition. However, according to Coach Heather Courts, those wins weren't "Starmount Softball." After Friday's huge 14-0 shutout win over the Ashe County Huskies, Courts is satisfied things are back on track for the Lady Rams. Josie Matthews set the tone for the game against the Huskies on Friday with a lead off solo homerun in the top of the first inning. Amber Smith hit a double late in the inning to drive in Ashlee Handy for the third run scored in the inning. In the top of the second inning, Rachel Wagoner connected with a leadoff single, followed by Matthews being walked to put runners at first and second with no outs. Becca Aplin followed up with an RBI single to right field, scoring Wagoner. Matthews eventually crossed home on a passed ball for the final run in the inning. The Rams continued to dominate in the third on the offensive side. Brittany White had a leadoff single to right, followed by Amber Smith's single to put runners on first and second. Christy Reavis fired a single to left field, scoring White. The Rams added two more runs before loading the bases and bringing Ashlee Handy to the plate. Handy eyed her pitch and launched a rocket over the fence for the grand slam, driving in the seventh run of the inning. Starmount added two more runs in the top of the fifth inning when Amber Smith hit a single to left field to score a pair of RBI. Ashlee Handy was 3-4, with three runs and four RBI. Amber Smith was 3-4 with one run and three RBI, while Josie Matthews was 2-3 with three runs and one RBI. Courtney Groce moved to 10-2 on the season with the win from the mound. The win improved the Rams to 8-0 in conference play and 11-3 overall. Starmount Ashe County 3 2 7 0 2- 14 15 0 0 0 0 0 0- 0 1 1

Rams no-hit Huskies, drive in 14 runs for win

RIPPLE/Chris Siers

After a three-day delay, the Rams were able to take care of business in Jefferson to pick up a much-needed conference win. The Rams exploded for 14 runs offensively, while Alex Barr took care of business on the hill for the Ram defense. Barr struck out 10 Husky batters in the five-inning games, while yielding only a pair of walks to earn the no-hitter. But perhaps the biggest highlight of the game was Dillon Dobson's grand slam. Tanner Mathis also had a home run in the game. Starmount connected on pitches for 12 hits and no errors in the game against Ashe. The Rams hosted the Buckin' Elks on Tuesday afternoon; however, results were unavailable at press time. Check the "Tribune Sports" Facebook page for results and photos.

Jessica Baity winds up for the shot on-goal from nearly 35-yards out. Baity rocketed the shot to the back of the net for the goal with about seven minutes left in the first half.

Falcons shut out Blackhawks

STAFF REPORTS

In a recent post-game interview, Forbush Coach Kenan James said one of his main goals is for Forbush to score a goal in the first five minutes. Haley Lindsay answered the call and fired a shot to the back of the Blackhawk goal just three minutes into the game. "We talked about getting on the board early, in the first five minutes, before the game started. I think it does more to hurt the other team mentally. It's a boost for us too," James said. Around the 37 minute mark, Lindsay took the ball on a throw in attempt to Emma Sjostrand. Sjostrand passed the ball right back to Lindsay who fired a lob shot just over the Blackhawk keeper's head for the early 1-0 lead. Sjostrand found the back of the net with a goal of her own, however the score was negated due to an offsides penalty. Sisters Jennifer and Jessica Baity teamed up for the second goal scored on the night. Jessica drew out the defense with some fancy footwork before dishing the ball off to Jessica, who in turn, blasted a

shot to the back of the net with 21:20 left. Jessica scored a goal of her own about 15 minutes later on a rocket fired to the back of the Blackhawk net from about 35yards out, giving the Falcons the 3-0 advantage with about seven minutes left in the half. Forbush added one more goal in the half, this time coming off the toe of Jessica Disher, with the assist from Haley Lindsay. Disher drilled the shot barely a minute after Baity's goal to give Forbush a 4-0 lead heading into the half. Early in the second half, Forbush had another goal that was negated due to an offsides penalty. "There are two types of off-

sides. One is where you're trying to get in behind the team. I think that's what it was, and I'm okay with those. Those things happen in a game. Hopefully it's because we were being aggressive," James said. Jessica Baity picked up her second goal a short time later unassisted with 21:15 left in the match for the final goal. The win moved the Falcons to 13-1 overall and 9-0 in the MVAC. The Falcons also played Elkin on Wednesday afternoon, however results were unavailable at press time. Forbush will continue the road trip this week on Thursday against Hibriten. For match results and photos, follow us on the "Tribune Sports" facebook page.

JOBS:

Continued from page 1 cility at 1000 Candle Wycke Lane, Elkin, to announce the new jobs coming to Elkin and Surry County. The governor's message arrives a day after Elkin and Surry County commissioners gave thumbs up to multi-million dollar incentive packages for the project that was dubbed Project Clear while negotiations were underway. Project Clear has been a key initiative of both Elkin and Surry County economic development departments for nearly a year. Town of Elkin and Surry County commissioners last night unanimously approved incentives to attract the company. When asked to reveal the name of the Project Clear company prior to Monday night's meetings, economic development officials stayed tightlipped. Going into Monday night's meetings, there was plenty of reason to assume the incentive packages in both Elkin and Surry County would be passed. Not only did the county receive a $2,045,000 million grant from North Carolina's Golden LEAF Foundation last week, but also, late Monday afternoon, Gov. Perdue's office issued a press release notifying

the media of her specially scheduled job announcement from the site in Elkin. In her announcement, Perdue said that PGW was initially attracted to Surry County because of its existing highskilled workforce, quality of life and well-maintained infrastructure. Pittsburgh Glass Works Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James D. Wiggins said that his company chose Elkin as the location of its new branch after considering 88 properties in four states. "We are extremely pleased with the support provided by Gov. Bev Perdue, Surry County Commissioner Paul Johnson and Elkin Mayor Lestine Hutchens and their colleagues with assisting our organization in determining Elkin, North Carolina, as the most appropriate location for our new manufacturing facility," said Wiggins. "We look forward to becoming a part of the Surry County and Elkin communities." Wiggins described Elkin's manufacturing site as a "stateof-the-art facility" that will accommodate PGW's "tech-driven business." PGW, he said, produces automotive OEM (original equipment manufacturer) glass products, including windshields, door windows and sunroofs. It also develops automotive glass tinting, backlights and wind-

shield wipers, among other related products. Wiggins estimated that the Elkin plant would reach its full operating capacity in 2014. At that time, it will employ 260 workers and produce more than one million windshields each year, said Wiggins in his remarks. Effective immediately, said Wiggins, the facility will begin developing its onsite infrastructure and acquiring equipment. Wiggins said he expects the Elkin location to produce its first tempered glass products later this year. Between 2014 and 2015, PGW will produce its first windshields in Elkin. Wiggins also broke more good news to the audience ­ including the governor ­ when he announced that PGW has already lined up business for its Elkin location. In a message read on behalf of the Surry County Board of Commissioners, Chairman Paul Johnson welcomed the county's "latest corporate citizen" and expressed gratitude that PGW selected Elkin as the site of its first manufacturing plant in the southeastern United States. Johnson said that he believes that the company "will elevate the skills of our already established workforce." He thanked both the current and former boards of commissioners for their roles in the

project as well as numerous county economic development officials. Elkin Mayor Lestine Hutchens also said that the announcement of PGW's arrival marked a "big day" for the town of Elkin. Hutchens thanked Elkin Economic Development Director Leslie Schlender as well as county and state partners for their dedicated work in the Project Clear initiative. The collaboration between local, county and state officials to bring 260 much-needed jobs to Surry County exemplified what Gov. Perdue described a multi-pronged approach to economic development within the state's small towns and communities. "Today proves the value of community support," said Perdue. PGW is headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA. The company currently employs associates in North Carolina at distribution branches in Wake and Mecklenburg counties, read to a press release from Perdue's office. Also according to the press release, while individual wages for the 260 new jobs will vary by job function, the overall average wage will be $30,608 annually, without benefits. Surry County's current yearly average salary is $26,016.

New boat access point opens Elkin's door to Yadkin

BRETT WILLIS

Staff Writer [email protected]

Recently ocal and state officials christened a dock from which they hope to launch a revitalization of the region's outdoor recreation, tourism and economy. Elkin Recreation and Parks Department staff, Elkin town commissioners and North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission representatives cut the ribbon on a $50,000 renovation project of Crater Park's Yadkin River boat access ramp. "I think this renovation will increase the boat access point's recreational use in several forms," said Elkin Recreation and Parks Department Director Adam McComb. "The site is already a part of the Yadkin River BlueWay, and it's used by a number of community groups. I hope this will only increase their use of the river." McComb said, too, that he

believes the renovated boat access point will stir other local residents'desire to experience a major part of their region's natural landscape and, in the process, promote the future of local business and tourism. "Maybe this will one day give a local entrepreneur the idea to start a boat rental business," said McComb. "But, for now, it certainly allows people in town and the surrounding area to enjoy the river just as it is." In his remarks to the audience, McComb thanked the Elkin commissioners and the Elkin Recreation Advisory Board as well as the NCWRC for its role in the project. The WRC renovated the boat access area for the town. "This was a collaborative effort between the Town of Elkin and the Wildlife Resources Commission," said McComb. "It's an example of two organizations working together to do something to benefit this town and this area." McComb added that thanks Jonesville library, which would result in reduction of hours, said Hedrick. Allred translated these hours to names and faces during the Jonesville town meeting Monday night. Library Assistants Shaunda Hodge and Cody Amburn could be out of their jobs. In the 10 hours Hodge and Amburn each work during the week, both have a tremendous impact on the local community, said Allred. Amburn, in particular, visits local preschools and schools for outreach programming. "I don't know how we're going to operate with two fulltime people," Allred said. "If one of us takes a vacation or gets sick, no one is going to be there to fill-in. If part-time positions are cut, I don't know how we're going to do it." Allred said if Hodge and Amburn lose their positions, the library's outreach efforts and hours would suffer. "The first route would be to close Saturdays," Hedrick said. The Jonesville Public Library is currently open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays and has additional hours on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, closing at 7:30 p.m.

to the improvements and the addition of a floating wooden pier, which was built by the N.C. Department of Corrections, more people than ever before will be able to use the facility. McComb noted that the ramp is fully accessible to people with disabilities and that it is entirely town-maintained with free, 24hour access to the Yadkin River. In his comments on behalf of the town, Elkin Commissioner and Mayor Pro-Tem Joe Walker said that the new boat access at Crater Park is a resource that will help residents discover a part of their own backyard. "Part of our town's longrange plan is to make people aware of the fact that we have a river in downtown Elkin," said Walker. With 13 other public access points along the Yadkin River, Walker said that he believes the river provides plenty of regional connection to develop a hidden tourism industry. Said Walker, "It's our town's best kept secret." rather than 5:30 p.m. Hedrick said after cutting Saturday hours, they would then look to cut the additional evening hours if the 10 percent cut happens. Hodge's hours consist mainly of Saturday and evening hours, according to Allred. Other libraries in the NWRL system would also feel the pain of budget cuts. "Yadkin would suffer reduction as well," Hedrick said. The NWRL system includes 13 member libraries throughout Alleghany, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin, but the possible cuts only affect the four Yadkin libraries as of now, said Hedrick. "Yadkin was the only one of the counties to request (two budgets)," he said. "It's budgeting time and the other counties have not suggested alternate budgets. Now, that's not to say it won't happen." "Jonesville's needs are different," said Lewis. He said the library needs to remain open on Saturdays and during its evening hours to meet the critical need of Jonesville residents who do not have Internet or computer access otherwise. "All of these people that can't afford computers, what are

Wildlife Resources Commission Division Chief of Engineering Services Eric Christofferson, Elkin Commissioner J.L. Lowe and NCWRC District Seven Fisheries Biologist Kin Hodges. Elkin and state officials hope the boat launch area will benefit local business and tourism and provide access to a valuable natural resource in the Yadkin River. they going to do when the library shuts its doors?" Allred asked. "What are they going to do when their child has a report due on Monday and the library is closed on Saturday?" Per Lewis, the current library budgets are: ·Yadkinville, $171,472 ·Jonesville, $109,657 ·East Bend, $90,472 ·Boonville, $50,649 "In short, they're talking about cutting back the funds to our libraries," said Jonesville Town Manager Scott Buffkin. "Hopefully, there won't be a budget cut." If there is a budget cut, though, Buffkin said the town will have to help the county see the importance of the Jonesville library and "focus cuts elsewhere." "We have a lot of tough decisions, but we have to make sure that, in the shuffle, we don't lose sight of the importance of the library," said Allred. "Your public library serves everyone who walks in the door," she said. "We have grown to where we have about as many people in our small library as Yadkinville library, which is four times as big," said Lewis. "We have close to the same amount of people visiting our library as they do." Last year, 54,422 items in the library were circulated, said Allred. The library added 355 new patrons last year, according to Allred, bringing their total registered patrons total to 2,697. She said, at various times during the year, the library staff keeps an hourly count of each person that enters the library. Using those samples to calculate a yearly average, Allred said approximately 50,000 people came into the library last year. On average, the library serves 20 to 30 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and 40 to 50 on Saturdays. "We have 20 - 30 percent of our population in the Jonesville area who come to our library on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturday mornings," she said. "These are mostly students and working people who have no other opportunity to use the library," said Allred. "Why do we need a public library?" Allred asked. "This is something I have thought long and hard about. "You have to have free knowledge available for everyone," she said. "The library enriches lives. People can make a better life for themselves. We enable people." The Jonesville Library provides internet service for patrons looking for employment, resume preparation, online training and college classes and homework research. In 2010, there were 12,969 sessions on the six computers with six internet connections. Allred said she recently helped someone fill out an online application for a position at McDonalds. She said the person "didn't even know how to click the mouse." It took Allred and the community member an hour and a half but they finished the application. "Where else are these people going to get this help?" she asked. Lewis said the Yadkin County Public Library no longer offers Saturday hours as a result of budget cuts. "In Jonesville," Lewis said, "this is something that is going to set us back." "We're going to do whatever we can," said Buffkin. The Jonesville Library Fund, which aims to renovate the property across the street as the new library, stands at $20,000. "We continue to raise funds for the new facility," Allred said. "As soon as possible, we'd like to apply for the grants to help the new library become a reality. The site would allow us more than double the space we have now. We hope to have the new library completed within two years." Allred used a Henry Ward Beecher quote to explain the extent of the community's need for the library. "Alibrary is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life."

CUTS:

Continued from page 1 to the community." Allred said the Northwestern Regional Library System was asked to submit two budgets to Yadkin County in February. One budget, a "flat budget" would show no increases in spending, and the other budget would cut 10 percent, according to John Hedrick, NWRL system director. "In my opinion, if they cut us back 10 percent, it's going to put us back where we were five years ago," said Councilman Danny Lewis. "Everyone is going to lose heart." A 10 percent budget cut translates to a loss of $39,000 for the library system, said Hedrick. "Since then, we've had feedback that it may be at six percent instead of 10 percent," said Allred. "Anything is conjecture right now," Hedrick said. If cuts are on the horizon, Hedrick said, "the only place we would have left (to cut) is personnel. "If we had to go the route of losing staffing, there would be a 20-hour position cut" for the
