Fuquay-Varina Downtown was well represented at the NC

Main Street Conference held recently at the Clayton Center.

The conference is packed each year with keynote speakers and

breakout sessions that focus solely on downtown development.

Each attendee from Fuquay-Varina was able to go to various

sessions and as a collective body will soon combine all that

was learned at the conference and apply it to Fuquay-Varina

Downtown.

Representing Fuquay-Varina were eight Fuquay-Varina

Downtown Board of Directors members, Naomi Riley -

Fuquay-Varina Downtown Executive Director, Mike Sorenson

– Town Planning Director, Jim Seymour – Town Economic

Development Director, Jon Barlow – Town Manager and

Fuquay-Varina Mayor, John Byrne attended the NC Main

Street Conference. Board members in attendance were Cindy

Overman – Board Chair, James Spidle – Chair Elect, William

Vaughan – Fundraising Chair/Secretary, Ken Updegrave –

Treasurer, Ann Marie Amico – Economic Restructuring Chair,

Eric Christofferson – Design Chair, Linda Wood – Promotion

Chair and Marilyn Gardner – Economic Restructuring

Committee member.

The annual conference is a huge draw for towns and each

year one Main Street community is selected to host the

event. Clayton did an outstanding job with their planning and

facilities for the event. The conference started with a warm

Lincoln Heights students

celebrate Year of the Dragon

With the start of the Chinese New

Year on January 23, 2012, Becki Walker’s

first grade class at Lincoln Heights

Elementary School enjoyed learning

about the celebrated event which has

been going on for over 4,000 years.

It is customary for the entire house

to be cleaned before New Years Eve, to

get rid of all things associated with the

old year. Then, brooms, dust pans and

brushes are put away so you don’t sweep

away all good luck and fortune.

This celebration actually starts on

New Year’s Eve with a reunion dinner

that includes close family members.

The dinner may feature Jai – a combination

of ginkgo nut, black moss, dried

bean curd, bamboo shoots, vermicelli

and scallion. Fish and chicken would

welcome from Clayton Mayor, Jody McLeod. Mayor McLeod

is visionary and enthusiastic about Clayton Downtown. He

and one of the Town Council members worked tirelessly, late

at night, to build what “they” termed as “public art”. The

public art, made out of tin foil and small ductwork was the hit

of the conference. Not necessarily that it was “good” but that

the activity showed the fun side of Clayton and their creative

leaders.

be presented whole and not cut into

pieces. Noodles also would be served

and again, not cut. Last, the dessert

would include oranges and cakes. These

foods represent wealth, fortune, love

and happiness and prosperity. All these

are wishes for the new year.

During this eight day celebration,

most places of business are closed,

with the exception of some stores. The

festivities include the dragon dance and

fire works which are set off to scare

away bad luck. Children receive red

envelopes with “lucky” money. Also,

everyone gets to celebrate their birthday

during Chinese New Year.

The learning experience was followed

by a game of Jiangxi. Then at last, a

piece of dragon cake was enjoyed by all.

By Jason Delong

THR’s Treasure Hunters Roadshow

STAFF WRITER

Yesterday at the Hampton Inn &

up to cash antiques, collectibles, gold

and jewelry in at the THR’s Treasure

Hunters Roadshow. The free event

is in Holly Springs all week buying

gold, silver antiques and collectibles.

One visitor I spoke with yesterday

“It is unbelievable, I

brought in some old coins

that had been in a little

cigar box for years and

some old herringbone

necklaces and in less than

fifteen minutes I left with a

check for $712.37.”

said “It’s unbelievable, I brought

in some old coins that had been in

a little cigar box for years and some

old herringbone necklaces and in less


for $712.37. That stuff has been in my

jewelry box and dresser for at least 20

years.” Another gentlemen brought an

old Fender guitar his father bought


bucks in that guitar.” The THR

specialist that assisted him, made a

few phone calls and a veterinarian in

Seattle, Washington bought the guitar

for $5700.00. The seller continued,

“I got another $150.00 for a broken

necklace and an old class ring. It’s

not every day that someone brings six

thousand dollars to town with your

name on it.”

Spread the love

Valentine’s Day is just

around the corner.

Some of you will say

it is a holiday made

up by the greeting

card companies, florists

and candy manufacturers.

I’m Ok with that. It really

doesn’t matter how it got started.

It is just one day out of the

year focused on love. As far as

I can tell, that’s a good thing.

Now, if you get caught up

in the “I have to buy a diamond

for my girlfriend or she’s

going to be mad” state of mind,

(which goes hand-in-hand with

the “if he doesn’t buy me a

diamond I’m going to be so

disappointed” state of mind)

I can see why you might not

look forward to a day focused

on love.

We rushed through Christmas

and weighed ourselves

down with shopping,

baking, obligations and

family. Valentine’s Day is

the perfect day to let

all the people in your

life know how much you

care. Sure, you could buy

flowers or candy or big

ticket presents, but a

simple phone call to say

Happy Valentine’s Day

is a great way to connect.

For someone like

me who never quite gets all

the Christmas cards sent or

Think before

you shop

Are you an

i m p u l s e

buyer? Does

shopping and

finding sales

provide you

with a sense of euphoria?

Impulse buying is

a huge waste of money

for those who are hoping

to live a frugal

lifestyle. Before

making your next

purchase, I would

encourage shoppers

to stop and

ask themselves

one simple ques-

tion before placing

an item in the

cart.

I am the first

to admit, I adore

after holiday sales.

I love getting items

for 50 percent off or

more. I receive this

great sense of satisfaction

at the thought of

saving money.

However, I have

learned you need to ask

yourself the question,

“Is this something I

really need, or do I want

it because it is simply

on sale?”

If the opportunity

arises and you have a

chance to think about

your purchase decision,

I would encourage you

to think about it overnight.

do not have overnight

to think about your purchase

experts recommend

holding the item

in your hand for a minimum

of ten seconds and

ask if there is purpose

for this product or is

this just a frivolous purchase.

When purchasing

items online

do not store your

credit card information

on the

site’s account.

When you have

your credit card

information stored

online it is easy to

spend because it is

easy just to click

and spend.

If you are forced

to take the time to get

your credit card out and

type in your information

it will at least make you

think before you spend.

There is another way

to cut down on impulse

buying. Do not leisurely

shop, shop to distress,

or shop out of boredom.

When going to a store,

shop with a purpose.

Write a list and stick to

it. This also cuts down

on a lot of impulse buying.

Independently

Speaking

Janet Kangas

gifts bought, Valentine’s Day is

a little day of amnesty. If I forgot

you at Christmas, it must

be because I had something

even nicer planned for

Valentine’s Day.

It’s also a great day

to take the time to treat

yourself. It isn’t just a

day for lovers. It’s a day

for all of us. Love yourself

and schedule a mas-

sage. Better yet, schedule

the day off and spend

it doing only what you

want to do. That is my

personal fantasy. I take

the day off but tell the

people I work with that I’m at

home and then I tell my family

that I’m at work and I slip away

to the beach for a day - alone.

Happy Valentine’s Day to me!

So far I have not made that

happen, but maybe this is the

year.

Maybe there is a friend you

haven’t seen in a long time.

Get together over a cupcake

and coffee and feel the love.

Valentine’s Day gives us permission

to do things we normally

wouldn’t do. How many

times during the rest of the

year do you look for heart

shaped foods or shop for big

boxes of chocolate? When else

will you buy those boxer shorts

decorated with little cupids?

Now is the time to go for it.

If you are really feeling

the love, find someone who

doesn’t get much love the rest

of the year and surprise them.

Maybe you have a neighbor

who lives alone or know an

elderly person who doesn’t

get much company. Pack up

some heart shaped cookies and

go for a visit. That is when

you get double the benefit of

Valentine’s Day – when you

make someone else’s day extra

special.

Don’t worry about cards and

candy and diamonds. Just get

out there and spread the love.

If it turns out to feel good,

consider scheduling your own

day of love on a regular basis.

Opening ever so slightly

It is the kind of surprise for

which every ambitious politician

must be prepared: the

unexpected decision by an

incumbent elected official to

retire.

It is, my friend Jay Rivers told me,

the kind of window of opportunity

that opens ever so slightly and rarely.

Be ready to decide quickly and

pounce on the unexpected opportunity,

before the window closes as a

result of others’ decisive action.

John Spratt, the former South

Carolina congressman, once told me

about his first campaign. It started

when his congressman dropped the

bombshell that he would not run

for reelection. Many other ambitious

politicians would have loved

to go to Congress, but all were surprised

and unprepared to gear up a

campaign. Spratt, though surprised,

was ready. Sometime earlier he had

made a telephone list of key people

in his district. Before the day was

over, he called everybody on the list.

First, he asked for their support.

He tried to get them to make a solid

endorsement. When seasoned political

leaders make such early commitments,

most try to keep them.

There are exceptions, but whatever

their failings, such leaders like to

have a reputation for keeping their

word.

Politicians, like the rest of us, have

a hard time turning down a request

for support from a friend. Although

the people on Spratt’s list had other

friends who might have wanted to

run, Spratt got their commitments

because he was first to ask.

Some on the Spratt’s list would

be more cautious, saying something

like, “I am not ready to commit.”

Spratt would try to get them to

promise not to support anyone else

until the dust settled and “we’ve had

a chance to visit again.”

Others might tell Spratt that they

liked him but that he would not be

their first choice, saying, “I really

hope Joe Blow will

decide to run, and, if

he does, I will have to

support him.”

Then Spratt might

ask, “If Joe doesn’t

run, can I count on

your support?”

One

on One

D.G. Martin

All this early work

garnered Spratt

important supporters,

some of whom might

have gone to other

candidates if he had

not asked first.

Spratt’s first campaign was 30

years ago, but being first to make

the calls is still critical.

Today, however, there is something

even more important: Being

ready, willing, and able to raise or

give the multimillion dollars necessary

to conduct the campaign.

When today’s political candidate

makes these early calls for support,

the first questions from many people

will be, “Where is your money going

to come from? Do you have enough

personal money to put in the pot?

Where are you going to get the millions

and millions it takes to win?”

After Governor Beverly Perdue’s

announcement that she will not

run this year, Lt. Governor Walter

Dalton and state Representative Bill

Faison were ready.

They have the advantage of being

first to make the public request for

support.

But as they are making calls and

asking for commitments, they have

to respond to the money questions.

Faison has some personal wealth,

but he will have to persuade prospective

supporters that he has

enough money and is willing to

spend it. Dalton has shown he can

raise funds to win a statewide race,

but he will have to convince people

that he can step up the fundraising

to a much higher level.

Both are getting some cautious

responses from people who think

Erskine Bowles would be the strongest

Democratic candidate or those

loyal to one of the many other possible

candidates.

But there is something nobody

can take away from Dalton and

Faison. They were ready. They are

out there, making early calls. And

they have a better chance to win

than if they had waited until that

window of opportunity started to

close.

“You sit in front of that

“Yes I suppose

very much.”

you what was the name of

the team in the pretty red

costumes you got all red

in the face! Then when

I asked why they kept

hitting each other then

hugging each other, you

seemed to blow a gasket

or something. I knew

you were upset when

you came back from the

kitchen and you had milk

instead of a beer.”

“Now Martha, can’t

a man’s stomach act up

once in a while without

you thinking it’s something

you might have

done, or said?”

“Of course dear,

except I know the milk

Study shows 4-H

youth take charge

of their future

With each new birthday or

grade level, parents are presented

with a broad array of

opportunities that are available

to their children from

sports to after school activities

and numerous community

supported youth organizations.

Households with

multiple children of various

ages or even with one child

are forced to weigh the benefits

of activities while at the

same time managing

busy work and family

schedules attempting

to incorporate the

activities that build

children both academically

and socially while

omitting the ones that

would have the least

constructive value.

Realizing the

tedious process that

parents are challenged

with in selecting out of

school activities to help their

children mold successful

futures, researchers at Tuft’s

University have conducted

the 4-H Study of Positive

Youth Development since

2002 to gain substantial evidence

on the impact that 4-H

has on the life of a child. The

study has involved 44 States

with more than 7, 000 youth

from diverse backgrounds.

Researchers continue to collect

data to further solidify

the impact of 4-H, however

current findings prove that

4-H provides guidance needed

for youth to make healthy

choices, excel in school and

be active in their communities

which are the building

blocks that allow youth to

create positive futures for

themselves.

As a result of 4-H health

and safety education programs,

youth are more likely

to practice healthy eating

habits and are more aware of

the importance that physical

activity plays in their health

and well being. 4-H youth

surveyed also displayed

drug, alcohol and cigarette

use that was significantly

lower than their non 4-H

peers.

you would have at least

milk was, and I know for

sure you would not have

“I don’t like to dwell on

that memory too much if

you don’t mind. Listen,

the commercial is almost

over, what were you looking

for me for anyway?”

Martha scratched her

head with the big soup

spoon she had and said,

“I wanted to tell you my

aunt Alice called

and Uncle Hank has

to have gall bladder

surgery Wednesday.

She wants to know

if the two boys can

stay with us a few

days.”

“Martha, those

two wrecking ball

nephews of ours

are wild as jack

rabbits. They break

my tools and one of

them always seems to be

getting hurt, sometimes

by the other, why do they

have to stay here?”

“My sister Jackie said

it would be a cold day in

you know where before

they stayed at their house

again, and where else are

they going to go?”

“The Zoo comes to

mind.” Jim said.

“But come to think of

it, that’s not why I was

looking for you. It just

come to me, something

is broke in the kitchen

and water is pouring out

everywhere and you need

to come fix it.”

“You mean the whole

time we have been talking,

water has been gushing

out all over the kitchen?”

“I didn’t say gushing,

but yea, that’s why I was

looking for you.”

“Well, you found me!”

Jim said as he reluctantly

turned off the television

after another exciting

Sunday of watching football.

I’ll be right back.

Findings also indicate that

4-H participation prepares

youth to excel in school

resulting in increased educational

achievement and

motivation to seek future

education. 4-H members

reported better grades than

their non 4-H peers and

demonstrated increased levels

of school participation.

Youth involved in 4-H also

are more likely to pursue

careers in science,

engineering and

computer technologies.

One of the most

significant findings

of the Tuft’s

study was that 4-H

youth are three

times more likely

to be engaged in

giving back to their

communities than

youth not enrolled in 4-H

programs. With youth

being eligible for 4-H participation

as early as age 5

and having 4-H programs

that grow with youth up

to age 19, 4-H provides

consistent encouragement

and support. While providing

year round learning

opportunities and support

from positive adult mentors,

4-H can play a vital

role in encouraging youth

to gain the skills needed

to take charge of their

futures.

Youth may begin participating

in 4-H at anytime

during the year. Programs

offered include 4-H Clubs,

summer day camps, overnight

camps, teen leadership

programs and special interest

groups focusing on topics

selected by youth.

4-H staff and trained adult

volunteers. For more information

Willow Spring man finalist for

Walt Disney Imagineering

Stephanie Eaton Harvie

A team of students from North Carolina State University

have been selected as a finalist for Walt Disney Imagineering’s

21st ImagiNations design competition. The team will find out

this week if they capture the top prize.

ImagiNations is an annual program designed

and sponsored by Walt Disney Imagineering, the

creative arm of all Disney Parks and Resorts worldwide,

which allows participants to showcase their

talents and gain practical knowledge in design

from leaders in immersive storytelling and themed

entertainment. For this year’s ImagiNations design

competition, students from universities across the

nation were given a challenge; “Imagine it’s the year

3011. Disney has entertainment experiences all over

the world, many which don’t even exist today. The

human race is finally living on the moon and Walt

Disney Imagineering wants to be the first one to provide entertainment

and/or recreation to the new citizens there. What

would you imagine that this new Disney experience could be?”

who is from the Willow Springs area, said he became involved

with the team from NC State last fall.

He said his team discovered they were finalists when

Dear Editor,

Currently, brick-and-mortar businesses have been struggling

with a weak economy and the effects of high unemployment.

On top of that, these small businesses are competing on

a different footing with online retailers when it comes to paying

state sales taxes. Online stores like E-Bay and Overstock

have been capitalizing on a pre-internet tax loophole for years

by neglecting to collect the tax on their sales.

Too many times have business owners seen customers

come in to their stores, browse merchandise, learn about

its benefits and then leave the store to make the purchase

Carolina Bead celebrates 5 years in Varina

In our troubled economy, it is always

exciting when a community business gets

to celebrate a milestone. And this is no different

for Cliff and Colleen Deming, owners

of Carolina Bead Company located in the

beautiful downtown Varina retail district.

“It’s very exciting that we have been able

to weather the recession and keep Carolina

Bead open and thriving,” says Colleen, “We

are the oldest remaining original tenant of

Varina Station, which gives us some longevity

in the community, and we are very proud

of that.”

Carolina Bead Company opened on

February 7, 2007 as a collaborative partnership

for two families. One family was

the creative entrepreneur-minded side of

the business, and Colleen and Cliff went

into the operation as an investment. The

Demings were working full-time in other

career fields, but wanted to open a business

for extra income and the long-term potential

of a successful retail opportunity. In

pre-recession 2007, this was quite common.

The operation was a hands-on, familyoriented

project from the start. Doing most

of the upfitting themselves, the Demings

and their partners painted, built cabine-

Kipling - Max Dayton Smith, Sr., 90,

died Tuesday, January 24, 2012. Funeral

services were held on Friday, January 27,

at Kipling United Methodist Church with

interment following at the Smith

Family Cemetery in Kipling.

Mr. Smith was the son of the

late Reid and Maggie Senter Smith.

He was born in Kipling in Harnett

County on April 30, 1921.

He graduated from LaFayette

High School in 1939 and attended

Elon College.

After school he held several different

jobs but came back to Kipling

to work with his father and brother

in the family’s general merchandise

store. He married Evelyn Ashworth of

Fuquay Springs in 1943. He later became

Postmaster at Kipling and retired in 1987

after 33 years of service.

During this time he also began a successful

photography business, Dayton Smith

Photography, Inc. He photographed more

than 1600 weddings before closing the business

in January 2007 after 37 years.

try, strung beads for display, and decorated

everything themselves. They had not

expected to open in February of 2007,

but their potential customers kept coming

to the door and asking when they were

opening, so they finally decided to respond

to public pressure and open a couple of

weeks early. Their customers have been

very faithful ever since. “It takes a lot to

run a business,” explains Cliff. “But we love

Fuquay-Varina and our customers make

it worthwhile. Without them, we couldn’t

have made it work.”

The partners hired their first employee,

Kylene Boerner, in September 2007 when

she turned 14. “Kylene’s brother was one

of our first customers,” Colleen laughs. “He

bought her a gift card and she wanted to

work for us immediately, but we had to wait

until she was of legal age to hire her. She’s

been with us ever since!”

Then 2008 and the economic fallout that

followed it changed the landscape quite

a bit. The troubles that hit other businesses

didn’t hit Carolina Bead Company

at first. People were trying to save money,

so the store stayed busy with customers

who were making Christmas and birthday

In addition to his parents, he was preceded

in death by his wife, Evelyn Ashworth

C. Smith and Hoke Smith and a

sister, Margaret R. Smith.

owners worked hard to create opportunities

to drive customers into the store, such as

creating teacher appreciation gifts for local

schools and offering events that combined

socializing and beading, like Ladies Nights

and “The Bead Bar,” where customers

could bead and chat or eat at the same time.

It wasn’t until about 2010 that the business

started to feel the effects of the unpredictable

retail market. With the bottom line

becoming trickier to manage, the Demings

business.

Wake Academy

students excel

in State Testing

Rosa Fattahi

Correspondent

Faculty members at Southern Wake Academy, a

tuition-free charter high school in the Fuquay-Varina/

Holly Springs area, were overjoyed this week when

they received news that 100 percent of their students

enrolled in Algebra I, Biology, and English I passed

the 2011-2012 North Carolina End-of-Course standardized

tests. Southern Wake Academy, serving students

in Grades 9-12, is the only charter high school

in the southern Wake County region and specializes

in small classes and community involvement.

Parents and teachers are delighted with the students’

outstanding performance, which can be credited

in part to the extraordinary efforts of Southern

Wake Academy’s committed staff and teachers.

Southern Wake Academy provides extracurricular

activities designed to ensure students’ educational

success, such as providing after-school group and

individual tutorial sessions as well as encouraging and

facilitating strong parental involvement in students’

academic progress.

Southern Wake Academy Director Carroll Reed

commended the students’ achievement and the efforts

of the faculty. “We are extremely proud of our students

and teachers for their hard work that resulted in a 100

percent pass rate. This achievement level reflects that

our students’ families have given education a high

priority. We also commend our teaching staff for their

dedication and willingness to do ‘whatever it takes’ to

make such a great accomplishment possible.”

More Southern Wake Academy students will take

the End-of-Course tests again at the end of May. With

the second semester beginning this week, the school’s

faculty is already working and making preparations

to guarantee the continued success of its students.

For additional information about Southern Wake

Academy, please call the school at (919) 567-9955.

SWA’s next Open House will be held on Thursday,

8A – Fuquay-Varina Independent, Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Live happy and healthy this New Year!

Each new year many of us vow to make

changes in our diet and physical activities.

Count me in on that one! Have you gotten off

to a good start? I have asked friends to share

their comments on what they feel works for

them. They all agree, if you don’t work out at

the gym, walk, run or work out at home. And

at meal time, use portion control.

Donna Thompson has always had her exercise

routine, but was never been too keen on

running. However, with the incentive of a

buddy and the purchase of a great lightweight

pair of running shoes, she now has added running

a few times a week to her

routine and enjoys it.

At dinner time, use portion

control. Try plating up the

right sized portions, instead of

family members serving themselves.

If the food is not placed

right in front of you, chances

are you may not be inclined to

serve up another helping. And

salads, eat at least one a day

and even replace lunch with a

salad. They can fill you up with

great nutritional value. And don’t forget fruits

and veggies! Eat an apple for a snack instead

of that candy bar.

Christine Carlson works out early in the

morning, before there is anything to cause

distraction. If you wait until later in the day,

things may come up that need your attention

and exercise does not take priority.

Find a group of people that will hold you

accountable. Chris runs with a group of

friends and always looks forward to seeing

them. That helps motivate her to go run.

Last but not least, if Chris doesn’t get to the

gym, she uses the Time Warner cable Fit TV

on Demand. There are longer and shorter videos

and most do not need equipment. These

can be done right in your own living room and

work for her and can work for you, too!

Here are also a few healthy recipes!

A Mystics Garden, owned by Jan Petri-

Kolleda and Dawn Prior, is a shop

like none other in Fuquay-Varina.

Located at 601 Broad St., the

shop offers handmade and specialty

jewelry, prints and decorative

fountains. Mostly, it offers a calm

haven of well-being. In addition

to items for sale, there are classes

that include topics such as medita-

tion, how to be happy and candle

making.

The newest offering at A

Mystics Garden is massage.

Adolfo Lunardi is a massage therapist

who will be at A Mystics Garden

every Tuesday and Thursday and every

other Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. At

just $40 per hour massage before gratuity,

it is a bargain. Adolfo agrees with Jan

and Dawn’s philosophy of making things

affordable for as many people as possible

so that people can enjoy themselves without

breaking the bank.

“I love to serve people and to be

hospitable,” Adolfo said. “I feel like

Adolfo Lundari was born and raised

on Staten Island, NY, and received his

associates degree from the College of

Staten Island. Adolfo transferred

to New York Restaurant School

due to his love of cooking, hospitality,

and belief that natural

foods help to heal the body. He

and his wife Laura and their two

children moved to Fuquay-Varina

four years ago. They wanted to

give their children a chance of

growing up in a good environment

and Fuquay-Varina was a

good fit.

Adolfo also works as a waiter

and cook at Carrabbas Restaurant

in Cary. He worked for Carrabbas in New

York and was able to transfer here when

his family moved. His wife is a teacher at

Lufkin Middle School. Some of his hobbies

include cooking, organic gardening,

continuous self-improvement and community

service through his affiliation with

the Knights of Columbus. He is also the

only male member of his children’s PTA

at school.

10A – Fuquay-Varina Independent, Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Local board members are apprised of court ruling on prayer

Shirley Hayes

Correspondent

Fuquay-Varina’s town

attorney advised the town

board last week that the

U. S. Supreme Court has

declined to hear an appeal

from a lower court decision

in North Carolina that

stopped sectarian prayers at

the start of Forsyth County

Commissioners’ meetings.

Attorney Mark

Cumalander said in an interview

after the meeting he

wanted to make board members

aware of the court’s decision.

He made no recommendation.

He said the decision

may not have any effect in

Fuquay-Varina.

The ruling by the 4th U.S.

Circuit Court of Appeals

found that Forsyth County

had endorsed Christianity

with its prayer policy

‘Bee’ My

FAYETTEVILLE – Buzz

on over with your preschooler

to the Museum of

the Cape Fear on Tuesday,

February 14 from 10 to

10:45 a.m. and learn about

North Carolina’s state

insect—the honey bee—

at Mommy, Me, and the

Museum Make Three. “Bee

My Honey” will introduce 3

to 5-year-olds to the wonder

of this tiny insect that can

seem to do it all: fly, pollinates

mother nature, makes

honey, and builds thriving

communities.

This 45-minute program

includes crafts, a song, and

a special guest—a local

bee keeper—who has been

long-time museum volunteer.

Children will make a

honeycomb and get to see a

real one too.

Admission is free. For

although the policy appeared

to be neutral on its face. The

appeals court said that under

the policy a large majority of

the prayers at board meetings

were Christian.

The Supreme Court

refused to review that decision.

Cumalander said in the

interview the Appeals Court’s

decision does not prohibit

prayer in public meetings so

long as the prayers are nonsectarian.

It’s only when a

prayer becomes “deity specific”

that the court sees a

problem, he said. He noted

that Congress opens with an

invocation.

“God is not a specific

deity,” Cumalander said, adding

that most every religion

has a god.

FVAA Girls

Softball

offers more

choices

than ever

Stephanie Eaton Harvie

Staff Writer

It is that time of year again

when area girls dust off their

softball gloves and step to the

mound. The Fuquay-Varina

Athletic Association is calling

all young ladies from ages four

to 18 to come out and sign

up for the recreational spring

softball season.

In 2012 the Fuquay-Varina

Athletic Association Softball

program will play with the

Dixie League.

J.G. Baker, a man who

has coached softball for 39

years, said the Dixie League

is a wonderful program to be

a part of. He said the league

teaches fair play and encourages

the girls to give 100 percent

in all that they do. He coached

within the Dixie leagues in

2002, 2003 and 2004 with

older softball players.

“Eighteen and under girls

won the Dixie state championship

in 2004 at a score of 2 to 1

in the eleventh inning and we

went on to fifth in the World

Series for recreation softball,”

Baker said.

The FVAA will also offer a

new league this year geared at

younger players.

“We are so pleased to offer

the first ever “Softball” t-ball

teams for girls age 4 to 6 years

old, a statement from the association

said. “The SweeTees

T-Ball league will focus on

teaching the little one’s the

fundamentals of the game,

allowing for plenty of exercise

and learning teaming skills.”

However, the SweeTees are

not the only league offered.

The recreational softball program

will also include additional

age groups of Darling

(7-8), Angels (9-10), Ponytails

(11-12), Belles (13-15), and

Debs (16 -18).

“Our program is designed

to offer options from entry

level to advanced play,” the

statement by the association

said. “We encourage anyone

interested to visit the FVAA

website at http://www.fvaa.

org/ where they can download

all the needed forms to

register.”

The deadline to register for

the league is February 10.

FVAA officials hope girls

from throughout the community

will play in the league.

“It is our hope that the

young ladies of our community

will come out, join in, and

take their place on the field,”

the statement said. ”Our

coaches will work diligently

to teach each age group the

fundamentals of the game and

provide them with an environment

where they are able to

excel. We look forward to seeing

you on the field!”

Baker also encourages girls

to come out and participate in

this league.

“This (softball) gives them

the chance to get exercise,

friendship, teamwork, learn at

their level and the chance to

meet and play softball with all

type of young ladies.”

Fuquay Middle Bengals win

over Holly Grove

Contributed photo

Scoring for the Bengals was Taylor Layton (pictured) with 9 points, Aaron Ruble and Trey Terry, 5points, Diaa Kurdy, 3

points, and Jaquan Nesmith, Aaron Clarke and Zach James each had 2 points.

Striped bass beginning to gather in

lower rivers for spawning migration

As the hunting seasons

begin to wind down and this

unusually warm weather sets

in, outdoorsmen are beginning

to shift gears and start thinking

in terms of fishing instead

of hunting. Shotguns and

rifles will be cleaned and

well oiled to be put into

storage until next year

and rods and reels will

come out of storage and

readied for what we hope

will be a banner year for

fish.

Although there are

some reports of some

rather small speckled

trout and red drum being

taken from some areas the

number-one fish on the minds

of many anglers is the striped

bass. We seem to be looking

at the leading edge of the

annual migration of the striped

bass (rock) from our saltwater

into the fresh water flowing

streams where the spawning

of the stripers will soon take

place.

It does seem to be a bit early

for these fish to begin to mass

at the mouths of the major rivers

such as the Neuse, Pamlico

and Roanoke but fishermen

that have recently tried their

luck in these areas are reporting

some activity there by the

rockfish. Generally they feel

that this unusually warm fall

and winter weather keeping

the water unusually warm as

well and is causing the fish

to begin to think in terms

of spawning. If this warmer

weather holds we may have

spectacular late winter fishing.

It was during just such unusually

warm winter weather that

Jimmy Hill from Washington

(that’s “little Washington”)

invited me to go along with him

to fish for rock near his home

at Cypress Shores. Jimmy had

a good view of the Pamlico

River from his living room

window and when he’d see the

seagulls start diving on bait

fish that the rock were feeding

on he’d jump in his boat

that was docked in front

of his house and could be

casting to the fish within

minutes. Jimmy was as

good a rock fisherman as

the Pamlico has ever seen

and when he offered to

take me along I jumped

at the chance.

As we cast bucktails

and other plugs into the

area where the fish were

feeding Jimmy explained that

there were lots of stumps and

logs in this part of the Pamlico

where we were fishing. This

underwater structure was what

held both baitfish and predatory

striped bass. Under Jimmy’s

expert instruction a successful

fishing trip was virtually a

sure thing.

While the Neuse and

Pamlico/Tar Rivers do play

host to a good number striped

bass year round, the numbers

of stripers present in the lower

parts of these waterways is

small when compared to the

numbers you find in the lower

Roanoke River at this time of

the year. Not only the striped

bass are moving from the

Albemarle Sound area into the

lower Roanoke River, hoards

of hickory and white shad are

also getting into the spawning

run and they’ll be moving upriver

in advance of the stripers.

It was one of those early

fishing trips into this lower

Roanoke River area that took

two of my fishing buddies and

I on one of the most memorable

angling days of our lives.

The Sans Souci State Ferry can carry two cars at a time across the Cashie River

near Windsor. It is guided across the river on an underwater cable and is powered by

a small engine aboard the ferry. It runs on no set schedule but, if you’re lucky when

you blow your car’s horn, the ferry operator who lives nearby will hear you and take

you across the river at this picturesque spot. It’s also great fishing in the Cashie

River. There’s a NCWRC boating access ramp by the ferry landing.

We had ventured from the

Raleigh area to Windsor to

try and catch a few late winter

fish. Fletcher Sanders and Sam

Garrison were game to come

along because we were in the

throes of one of those unusually

warm winter days that made

a fishing trip seem feasible. All

of us were suffering from cabin

fever and the trip seemed to

offer a cure.

We launched our boat at the

Sans Souci ferry boat ramp

on the Cashie River, took the

Thoroughfare through the

swamp over to the Roanoke

River, into Broad Creek and

into Cow Creek where we

planned to fish. The only thing

was that our warmer weather

had changed overnight and by

the time we arrived in Cow

Creek it was blowing a gale

and the temperature was in the

mid-twenties.

We’d hoped to catch some of

the early rock and maybe a few

largemouth bass. Cow Creek in

boys basketball team came away with a

30-26 win over rival Holly Grove. The

Bengals held onto a lead throughout

the game but Holly Grove made a

comeback near the end to put pressure

on the Bengals, but that wasn’t enough.

Coach Michael Bremer was excited

about the win and commented, “This

was the win that we’ve been waiting

for and we had our two best practices

leading up to the game.

The team has been watching some

film of our games and that really seems

to help, because now the players aren’t

just hearing from me, they see what we

need to work on.

It was one of the most exciting

games I’ve been a part of and I have

to give credit to Holly Grove for battling

the whole game. We were able to

come up with a few big plays when we

needed them.”

years. It was not that day. We

cast our arms off and watched

the water freeze in the guides

for this colder weather

and by mid-afternoon we were

about cold enough to call the

say the boat ride back to the

Cashie River was a long one.

We didn’t catch one fish but,

in retrospect, the trip with two

good friends will always be a

Skin Care for Athletes uses Indiegogo

campaign for soap line for women’s shelters

Skin Care for athletes, the only organic and

natural skin line designed specifically for

athletes has launched a fundraising campaign

on Indiegogo.com to raise $20,000

to expand into soaps for women’s shelters.

The Giving Goddess Soap line will

be a natural line that will produce and sell

soaps using the one-for-one model. That

means for each set of soaps sold, a set will

be donated to a shelter of the buyers choice

or a local shelter in Wake County.

These all natural soaps are engraved with the

words Faith, Hope and Love and will be hand

painted with natural ‘paints’ made from vegetable

powders. “Even before I knew that I would ever own

a skin care line, I’ve wanted to donate soaps to women’s

shelters for more than 10 years after I read that

toiletries were always in short supply, stated Taylor

Sparks, Principal Goddess of Skin Care for Athletes.

The Giving Goddess soaps will also utilize aromatherapy

blends to assist in lowering anxiety, destressing

and uplifting as well as providing a gentle,

moisturizing bar of soap. There will be an unscented

bar for those with sensitivities to essential oils. “It is

of going to a shelter, for whatever reason, that

Taylor said.

Apex High School

launches app

development program

Jordan Yelverton

Contributing writer

On Tuesday, Lenovo, the National

Academy Foundation (NAF) and North

Carolina Governor Beverley Perdue joined

with Apex High School’s Academy of

Information Technology to launch the beginning

of an innovative mobile app curriculum

program for high school students.

Apex High School is just one of five

schools nationwide that is taking part in the

pilot program.

The program is a 12-week instructional

program that is designed to teach high school

students across the nation how to develop

and design mobile apps for smart phones

and tablets.

The goal of the program is to guide students

in the interest of STEM (science,

technology, engineering and math) subjects,

sharpen their skills and better prepare them

for a future of success.

“High-tech skills are critical for North

Carolina’s pipeline of future workers,” Gov.

Perdue said. “Unique partnerships like this

one not only give high school students realworld,

real-time learning opportunities, but

they align with the broader goals of business,

education and government to create North

Carolina’s next generation of professional

leaders.”

According to research by Lenovo, most

students have a high interest in mobile apps

and see the skill of developing them as a

valuable tool. “Last year, 17 billion apps were

downloaded, and over the next two years,

that number will rise to 138 billion apps

being downloaded”, Lenovo Vice President

and General Manager Tom Looney said.

However, Lenovo research also shows that

students “don’t have confidence that they will

have the technology background needed for

tomorrow’s workforce.” But the students at

Apex High School don’t have that to worry

about. Gov. Perdue told the students, “…you

all are going to have the opportunity and the

skill set to figure out how to develop them.

You’ll lead the world.” Also, to help boost that

confidence, students and teachers were given

more than two dozen ThinkPad Tablets and

“Unique partnerships

like this one not only give

high school students realworld,

real-time learning

opportunities, but they

align with the broader

goals of business, education

and government to

create North Carolina’s

next generation of professional

leaders.”

N.C. Governor

other Lenovo technology to help initiate the

program.

This program will provide a world of possibilities

for students at Apex High School and

a unique opportunity to gain the knowledge

and experience with innovative technology.

“Our schools are strong because we have

great partnerships with business and industry,”

Anthony Tata, superintendent of the

Wake County Public School System said in

a statement. “This unique program gives our

students practical experience with innovative

technology at a time when they’re making

decisions about their future careers. We’re

creating the next generation of entrepreneurs.”

The program will be applied to a 12-week

after-school activity where students will work

together in teams to develop an application

for Android-based mobile devices.

The program gained interest quickly

throughout the high school, and by Tuesday’s

launch meeting more than 200 students had

already applied.

“This is the new frontier,” Looney said.

“We want to look at students’ skill level and

help develop and prepare them for college.”

When asked why Lenovo picked Apex

High School Looney stated, “It made sense

to start here. Start in our own backyard.”

food and, if anglers are

lucky and the weather

cooperates a good day’s

fishing can be had. The

Old Timers will not tell

you exactly where they

usually catch these early

rock but if you keep fishing

away until you hit

a productive spot, you

can, as one of these Old

Timers says, “wear ‘em

out.”

A good bet at this time

of the year is to troll with

bucktails (or the “hairy

worm” version of a bucktail)

until you find the fish.

Once a good area is

found you can cast plugs

to the rock or you can

use cut bait.

Some anglers lay-in a

good supply of hickory

shad in the freezer a

year earlier and use the

cut shad for cut bait.

That’s a good bait to use

on these early fish.

If your fishing the

Roanoke Delta or

Albemarle Sound where

the Roanoke dumps into

the Sound, keep your

eyes open for sea gulls

feeding.
