On Saturday April 6, 2013 a year long dream and a lot of
hard work came to reality for Boy Scout Jarrett Jackson. A
dedication ceremony for his Eagle Scout project entitled
“Project Eagle Flight” was held at Spivey’s Corner Fire
Department with a large crowd of supporters at Jarrett’s
side to show off the newly completed Helipad. Also an
impressive entrance and demonstration was done by two
Critical Care helicopters, showing exactly the impact the
new helipad will have on this crucial emergency service.
The Project Eagle Flight Dedication Ceremony was called
to order by Richard Stephenson, Eagle Scout Advisor with
invocation being done by L.E. McLamb. Presentation of the
Colors was done by the Sampson County Fire Association
Honor Guard and newly promoted Eagle Scout Jarrett
Jackson led the Pledge of Allegiance. Speakers included
Richard Stephenson, Eagle Scout Advisor who presented
the history of Jarrett’s project and Don Butler, Director
of Government Affairs and Public Relations with Murphy
Brown LLC, presented Murphy Brown’s role in helping to
raise the necessary funds for the Helipad project. Jarrett
Jackson made his Dedication Remarks and showed the
attendees a power point presentation of his “Journey to
an Eagle Scout”.
Jarrett is a sophomore at Midway High School and a
member of Mingo Baptist Church. He joined the scouts as
a Tiger Cub when he was in the first grade, and has been
involved with scouting ever since. Jarrett’s father, Ricky
Jackson, is a cattle farmer and a volunteer firefighter with
the Spivey’s Corner Fire Department. His mother, Denise
Jackson, is a First Grade teacher at Midway Elementary.

Terry Lee stated, “We want to build a place all of Sampson County can be proud of.
We want a place where the customers not only say WOW when they walk in, but they
also say WOW when they leave by the service they have received. We want to build a
dealership that uses all the modern technology to make the experience of buying or
servicing your car easy.”
“We have always tried to contribute in a positive way to our community,” stated
Ingrid Burgess, “here in Sampson County, so when the opportunity arose to bring
back Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram to the citizens of this county, we were proud
to accept the invitation. Our facility has been designed and is being constructed in
a manner that will allow for a new, superior automobile sales and service experience.
Performance Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram will offer small town service and values
with the amenities, technology and conveniences people would expect to see in larger
metropolitan dealerships.”

counties to come together and support this opportunity to
build future leaders.” The purpose of the FUNd Run is to raise
money for after school programs coordinated by Team P.R.I.D.E., and to assist in enhancing
their playground atmosphere. Any area business or organization that would like to become a
sponsor for Team P.R.I.D.E.’s “Running with P.R.I.D.E. 5K FUNd Run” are encouraged to contact
either Jessica Eason or Betsy Autry at 910-525-4538, or via email at [email protected]
and [email protected]
Team P.R.I.D.E. is an after school program offered to girls in grades 3-5, that focuses on team
building, character building, self-esteem building, and physical fitness. The program affords
opportunities to those students that most likely would not receive these opportunities
otherwise. Organizers stress that those who sponsor the “Running with P.R.I.D.E. 5K FUNd Run”
will be helping to ensure that Team P.R.I.D.E. students will be able to continue participating in
Team P.R.I.D.E. programs without placing financial burdens on their families. They also plan
to make the “Running with P.R.I.D.E. 5K FUNd Run” an annual community project hosted by
Team P.R.I.D.E. Jessica Eason, a Guidance Counselor at Roseboro Elementary and one of the
organizers states, “With the funds raised from the fund run we plan to continue Team PRIDE
and hopefully start a boys after school program as well, which will all be at no cost to the
students. Currently we have 21 girls that are involved in Team P.R.I.D.E. and 5 coaches. We
workout/run once or twice a week depending on the weather, as well as continue character
building exercises. We would love to be able to have more students involved in these programs
in the coming years.”
Ms. Eason goes on to say, “Team P.R.I.D.E. began when Betsy Autry had a goal to begin an after
school program for a group of girls to show them belonging; and allow them to have a vision
of what they can accomplish if they put their hearts into something. It was our goal to provide
these girls with direction before they entered into middle school and the pressures that come
with that. With this in mind I was contacted through email by the YMCA in Wilmington in
regards to Girls on the Run (GOTR). I immediately sent this email to Ms. Autry who brought
it to our principal and that is how this program got started, ‘a vision and a big heart of love
from a beloved teacher by all her students, Ms. Autry.’ Ms. Autry, myself, and Ms. Colwell (our
principal) came up with our plan and we ran from there recruiting a couple more coaches
along the way.”
Betsy Autry, a Fourth Grade Teacher at Roseboro Elementary adds, “The GOTR program is
designed for girls in grades 3 through 5. It works on self-esteem, character education, and
physical fitness; also teaching these girls that it is ok to step outside of their box and be a
leader. This program is a 10 week program that we completed with a 5k run in December in
Wilmington, NC. The girls were very interested in staying in the program but in order to do
this cost free to them we decided to start our own team...Team P.R.I.D.E. (Positive, Respectful,
Independent, Determined, Extraordinary) and include a community outreach element to
the program.” A few of the community outreach programs for Team P.R.I.D.E included a visit
to a local nursing home where students in Team P.R.I.D.E delivered Valentines Cards to the
residents, students also participated in collecting trash and cleaning their school grounds.
Ms. Eason concludes by saying, “We are encouraging other schools in Sampson County to
join us in this endeavor. GOTR has been trying to spread into Sampson County schools
(elementary and middle) but they need help spreading the word and willing volunteers to
launch the programs in their own schools. We have had parents come and tell us how much
they feel like this program benefits their daughters and hope that this will continue.”
For more information on Team P.R.I.D.E. please visit their facebook page...Team P.R.I.D.E. at where they keep sponsors updated as well
as add any information regarding the race available at the time. See more pictures on The
Sampson Weekly Facebook page.

Life Flight helicopter landing on new helipad at Spivey’s Corner Fire Department
get to a major trauma center as quickly as possible.” Explaining what led him to choose
Project Eagle Flight, Jarrett continues, “I started scouts as a first grader just because I
thought it would be fun. I soon realized that there was a lot of work involved too. I always
had the goal to become an Eagle Scout, and when I started thinking about a project my
dad told me of a need at the Spivey’s Corner Fire Department that would also benefit the
whole county.”
Jarrett’s Helipad project includes a 1,600 square foot, approved concrete pad. The 40
by 40 foot pad has 8 flush-mount landing lights, a lit windsock, and a helicopter radio
remote control. “This is a standard landing pad for all of the helicopter services that
fly into Sampson County. It will cut down on the number of personnel needed to load
patients and speed up loading time. It should be safer for the flight crew and volunteers
on the ground as well,” Jarrett explains.
According to Jarrett, “Now that the project is finished, I am relieved that the hard work
is over and happy that I could do something to help my community. Now that spring is
here, I will get back to farming. That is what I really enjoy. I will continue to volunteer at
the Spivey’s Corner Fire Department and finish my junior year at Midway High School. I
plan to finish high school and hopefully go to NC State in the Agriculture program.”
Jarrett continued, “The main thing I would like to say to the community is thank you for
your support.”
Jarrett’s parents Ricky and Denise Jackson beamed with pride, “We are very proud of
the work that he has done to complete this project. It took a lot of planning and the
help of community members and businesses to complete the project. It was a very big
undertaking. We are proud of the hard work he has done and the young man that he
has become.”
Jarrett’s Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held Sunday April 7th at Mingo Baptist Church.
Jarrett Jackson is a fine young man and we would like to thank him for his hard work and
dedication to this Helipad Project. It is a project that will save lives and will be having
impact on generations to come.
Thank You, Jarrett!! See more pictures on The Sampson Weekly Facebook page.

Week of April 11-17, 2013
Sampson County May Produce Water as a Commodity
On Monday night, Lee Cannady, Sampson County Public
Works Director, hosted a second planning/discussion meeting
with the County Commissioners, County Manager Ed Causey,
Assistant County Manager Susan Holder and Finance Director
David Clack.
Cannady began the night by very briefly recapping the history
of the county’s water/sewer infrastructure and stated. “Let’s
loosen our collars and set back in an informal atmosphere
much like we would on our front porches. We (the county
Public Works) have been good stewards to our customers and
to the county and continue to be to this day. We do want to
improve our system and be consistent with the desires of this
board. I am impressed with your (county commissioners) interest and enthusiasm in laying the foundation for generations
to come. I appreciate your patience in working with us.”
According to Cannady, Sampson County currently serves
5,100 customers at an average monthly water use of 5,000 gallons per month per family. The County’s $30,000,000 water
infrastructure was put in place using $15,000,000 in grants and
the remaining being financing with 38 and 40 year notes. The
system was designed as a Rural Domestic Water source, not a
fire rated system- however it does serve as a water source for
fire departments in the county.
After bringing the commissioners up to date on the current
system, Cannady explained that with the current cost of paying for the debt service, maintaining current infrastructure
and purchasing water from current municipalities, the county
is barely breaking even. Cannady went on to describe the need
to expand the system into areas not being served, as well as
meeting the needs of potential industrial clients locating to the
I40 exits. Supplying water to these areas would require constructing additional lines. Presently the 403 water lines run
within approximately 1 mile of the Faison-I40exit. Cannady
described a scenario of expanding the current system in order
to serve additional customers within this area. Based on current biding, construction cost -expanding the system one mile
at an average of 15 additional customers per mile would cost the
county nearly $110,000. Financing this expansion for 10 years
at 4.5% would equal an additional yearly expense of $13,965.00.
There are two different scenarios to pay for this expense; 1) Dividing this expense by the additional 15 customers would equate
to a $77.00 per customer per month debt service in additional to
an average $40.00 water bill. 2) Or we divide the cost up among
our entire customer base at an increase of 23 cents per customer.
Cannady stressed at this point- “We need to get as much bang
for the buck as possible because the days of the easy GRANT
money are no more.”
Cannady continued, “If the board wants to expand, we’ve got
to be smarter.” Looking ahead concerning lowering the operating cost, Cannady expressed his satisfaction that once the
new approved wellheads are online, the county could produce
additional water at reduced cost. This could possibly reduce the
county’s operating expenses once the wellheads are fully operational, allowing the county to reduce the need to purchase their
current supply of water from other sources. Cannady stated,
“If we reduced the quantity of water purchased from the City
of Clinton by half, we could save $72,000 per year. Producing
our own water cost us $1.35 per thousand gallons. We buy water
from The City of Clinton for $1.90 per thousand gallons.” Also
Cannady explained to the board the fact that the southern end
of the county has the fewest households but could hold the future in producing additional water for Sampson County. “If the
county expanded in the southern end of the county we could
produce water and push it up to the northern end of the county
where the customers are. Again we will follow the direction of
this Board.”
Lee Cannady explains to county commissioners the
water line routes in Sampson County
Cannady continued to explain another possibility of lowering the operating expenses, and helping to expand the water
producing capabilities, is to outsource surplus water to other
municipalities. Cannady reiterated that a possible new customer has shown interest in partnering with Sampson County
to purchase 1.5 millions of gallons of water per day. In a well
study which was done for the county, Cannady stated, “The
best future source of water and the best quality of water in the
county is in the southern end of the county. We presently have
282 potential customers wanting the county to supply them
water in this area.
“Gentleman,” Cannady stated, “Sampson County is a Regional
Water System. I’m impressed! Our system covers more area
than the state of Rhode Island. Let’s not make quick decisions
but make wise decisions. I serve the Board, I serve the County
and I serve the 5,100 water customers in our County.”

attended high school prior to going to UNC
Chapel Hill where he would study Journalism and
Philosophy. While at UNC, in the mid 1980’s, John
Hood started a student magazine titled Carolina
Critic. That student magazine would eventually
be published on several major college campuses
in NC, with a lean toward conservative and
libertarian writings, and a version of the magazine,
The Carolina Review, is still published at UNC.
Hood credits student journalism for his desire to
pursue journalism as a career.
Hood would also spend time in Washington
DC, both before and after college; and spent a
year working on The New Republic, a political

Next, JW Simmons asks Hood to discuss his latest book,
“First in Freedom”. Hood says that in 2011, he and his
colleagues at The Locke Foundation, knowing that there
would likely be a change of power in Raleigh, decided that
a series of two books would help set the stage for a reform
agenda for the state. “So,” says Hood, “in 2012 I wrote a book
called, Our Best Foot Forward.” This book, as Hood explains,
was an analysis of our economy, a discussion of what makes
state economies grow, and an investment plan to make North
Carolina more economically competitive. This book was
published in 2012.
Hood says that a natural follow-up to that book was one that
actually got into the nitty-gritty, into the details of how we
could reform the education system, how we could reform the
tax system, the regulatory system, how could we re-organize
North Carolina’s government. And that became the genesis
of the second book, First in Freedom.
Hood states, “North Carolina has a great history of freedom,
but recently we haven’t been living up to it. So we decided to
lay out an agenda for free people to pursue, to create more
freedom and therefore, more prosperity in North Carolina.
And that’s what the book, First in Freedom is about.”

Spring 2013 Litter Sweep Planned for April
Volunteers are needed to participate in the Governor’s proclaimed LITTER SWEEP to remove litter from North Carolina’s roadways and more specifically Sampson County Highways. Help beautify your community by getting involved
locally. Participants are eligible to receive a certificate of
appreciation and enter the Unusual Litter Contest for cash
geted by NCDOT are roads that have been requested or known
high litter areas.”
“The public can contact NCDOT/Sampson County Maintenance at 592-1434 if they are interested in adopting a segment of roadway under the Adopt-A-Highway Program.
They can also call us to report areas that are in desperate
need of litter pickup.”
Litter Sweep is a statewide roadside litter cleanup drive sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The Spring 2013 Litter Sweep is scheduled for April 13-27.
About Litter Sweep:
Litter Sweep is a statewide roadside litter cleanup drive sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation
(NCDOT). It is usually scheduled for the last two weeks of
April and September. The NCDOT Office of Beautification
administers the Spring and Fall Litter Sweeps.
Volunteers can obtain pick up supplies such as orange trash
bags, blue bags (for items to be recycled), orange safety vests
and gloves from their respective local NCDOT county maintenance office in Clinton, NC.
According to Keith Eason, Sampson County DOT, “Litter
Sweep provides a great opportunity for everyone to come together and help beautify their community by getting involved
locally. Everyone’s participation is needed in order to clean
up the increasing amount of roadside litter in Sampson Coun-
Volunteers are desperately needed to help with the clean-up
efforts. Presently the NCDOT, Adopt-A-Highway participants, and other volunteers band together to clean up the
county during Litter Sweep. Volunteers can obtain pick up
supplies such as orange trash bags, orange safety vests and
gloves from the NCDOT/Sampson Maintenance Office located at 220 North Blvd in Clinton.
Eason continued, “It is funded with general maintenance
funds. NCDOT will spend approximately $10,000 during Litter Sweep, but cleanup efforts are year round also. In fiscal
year 2012, which if from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012 approximately $37,000 was spent on litter cleanup in the county.”
When asked how the DOT determines which roads will be
cleaned, Eason stated, “Adopt-A-Highway segments are
signed and are picked up by those participants. Locations tar-
NCDOT maintenance crews devote one week of their time
during Litter Sweep to pick up litter and collect orange bags
from the roadsides once the groups have completed a cleanup.
Everyone’s participation in Litter Sweep is needed in order to
clean up the increasing amount of roadside litter. For future
planning, the 2013 Fall Litter Sweep is scheduled for Sept.
21 to Oct. 5.

pray. He is the author of the best-selling book Prayers for Prodigals, as well as The Lost Art of Praying Together and Praying
the Prayers of the Bible. Franklin Graham wrote about Prayers
for Prodigals, "My mother, Ruth Bell Graham, would have loved
this book . . .
God has uniquely equipped James to encourage others in prayer.
He is available for speaking events, seminars and retreats.
I believe if every parent would peruse these pages they would
find guidance and comfort in trusting in the Lord with their
dearest possessions." A gifted speaker, James communicates
from the heart about his personal experience as the parent of
a prodigal, pointing parents to what God alone can do through
His amazing power to answer prayer. "When our children bring
us to our knees," he writes, "we're in the best position for God
to help us."
Pastor Ken White of CPHC, “Please join us April 12-13, 2013
as we host Dr. James Banks for our first ever Prayers for Prodigals Seminar. Dr. Banks is a gifted speaker, who communicates
from the heart. This seminar is free so please, if you know of
anyone that could benefit from this seminar, please feel free to
The event is April 12 @ 7 pm and April 13 @ 9 am in the Family Life Center at CPHC, Clinton’s Community Church located next door to Sampson Community College on Sunset Blvd.
This event is free of charge.
James and his wife Cari have been married for more than 25
years, and have two children in college. They make their home
in Durham, North Carolina where James serves as a pastor and
One of the best known and favorite parables told by Jesus is
the parable of the Prodigal Son. A story of a rebellious son
who demands his inheritance, squanders his father’s assets, and
chooses to live in sin. In the meantime his father remained
hopeful of the return of the wayward son to his father’s house.
This reminds us of the path our prodigal children may choose
outside of our control, leaving us questioning what we as parents can or should do.
Author Dr. James Banks explains, “Other parents may not
understand what you’re up against with your prodigal son or
daughter, but God understands. He knows what it’s like to have
a world full of prodigals, and He waits for you to bring yours to
Him through committed, passionate praying.”
James Banks' books have encouraged thousands of parents to

James received Jesus as his Lord and Savior when he was a child,
and feels a calling to help believing parents share their faith with
their children. One of James’ greatest joys is to encourage Christians in prayer. James started writing in elementary school when
his 4th grade teacher heard him making up poetry, and assigned
him topics to write about (probably to make him sit still!). Today, in addition to speaking and writing, he enjoys college basketball, beekeeping, tennis, gardening, and spending time under
the hood of his 1964 Plymouth. James also loves church history
and languages, and is fluent in both German and Spanish.
James is a graduate of Westmont College (B.A.), Princeton Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity), and Gordon-Conwell

Revival and Reform). He is ordained in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC). His senior year in high school James was

Get Set
(Part 2 of a 4 part Series)
in “anticipation of action” that is about to take place.
The Israelites are set, and they are within a short time
of receiving their signal to move out and to cross the
Jordan River.
By Vanessa W. Polk
Those who know that I love basketball may not know
that I am also a huge fan of track and field; in fact, I’m
a marathoner. There is something extremely beautiful
about the ritual of running. Whether sprint, hurdles, or
long distance each starting line is filled with potential
and possibility. The people who line up behind them
have already done the tough preparation, and are now
to get moving. The adrenaline is high, the runners are
pumped, and the anticipation of reaching the finish line
is great.
In the text the Israelites are setting out from Shittim
to the Jordan, which suggests that they have readied
themselves and are now in position to fix their attention
on crossing the River. Although it does not speak of
Joshua 3:1-3 - Early in the morning Joshua
and all the Israelites set out from Shittim
and went to the Jordan where they camped
before crossing over. After three days the
officers went throughout the camp, giving
orders to the people: When you see the Ark
of the Covenant of the Lord your God, and the
priests who are Levites, carrying it, you are
to move out from your position and follow it.
the journey being a race to a finish line, they are however
physically, psychologically, and spiritually postured for action
–entering and possessing the Promised Land. When a runner gets set in the blocks or corral, their position is not meant
to be held very long. The ‘set’ posture is of limited duration
Life Focus: Once the ‘set’ command is given in a race,
no one is allowed to more –start their forward motionuntil the starter’s gun is fired; a violation will cause a
false start and can result in a disqualification. Obedience to God’s command of ‘get set’ is even more critical for His people. Promises of divine manifestations
are often missed or delayed because of fears and false
starts. For a Christian runner, let’s not become overly
anxious in the faith race. We must settle our spirit and
stay in our set position until we hear a word from the
Lord. Our command to move out and apprehend a
long-awaited promise, hope or dream won’t be long.
Stay in your set posture, it will not be long –a divine
move of God is near!

Stop. Yield. School zone. Sharp curve ahead.
Slippery surface. Hidden drive. Steep decline.
Road signs protect us from dangers. Likewise, the
Bible protects us in the face of temptation & sin.
By God’s Word, His servants are warned (Psalm

that I might not sin against You (Psalm 119:11).”
To ignore the Bible’s warning signs is as foolish
as ignoring road signs. The Bible provides the
greatest protection.
The Bible also provides the greatest profit. Psalm
19:11 says, “In keeping them there is great reward.”
When the Bible’s warning signs are honored, it

Have I Got A Story To Share With You!
by Debra Joy Wallace
My niece Hannah Wallace climbing a rock wall.
Earlier this week I watched my young niece Hannah
as she attempted to climb a rock wall. Over and over
again she’d lose her footing and fall to the ground or
else she’d become ‘stuck’ on the wall because she
couldn’t find anything to grab hold of or she couldn’t
reach the next foothold. Thankfully, climbing the
rock wall was simply an impulsive fun thing Hannah
wanted to try that day and therefore she didn’t take it
too seriously.
But what about those days in your life when you feel
like you’ve hit a wall? And you can’t help but take it
seriously because you know that one way or the other
you’ve got to get to the other side. Yet seemingly the
wall is massive and impassable. Ever feel this way? If
so, you’re not alone. All of us at some time or another
come against a wall that threatens to block us from
our ‘hopes’ in God. For some people those ‘hopes’
might be for…healing, deliverance, provision, or to
have a child. For others, their ‘hopes’ might be…
salvation for a wayward family member or completing
an assignment that God has given them.
Whatever your ‘hopes’ in God are…be steadfast in
your faith and don’t be intimidated by walls. The truth
is even Bible ‘heroes’ sometimes felt like they’d hit
an impenetrable wall. Fortunately for us, God made
sure their ‘hit the wall’ struggles were included in His
Word…the Bible. And if we’ll read their stories not
only will we be strengthened and encouraged…we’ll
also discover a powerful truth that the Bible heroes
learned in their trials. And that truth is that God
empowers His sons and daughters to scale walls! I’m
reminded of what David sung when the Lord delivered
him from the hand of all his enemies and from the
hand of Saul. It’s recorded in Psalm 18:20 that David
sang unto the Lord, “With your help I can advance
against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.”
The LORD longs to be gracious to me; he rises to
show me compassion. For the LORD is a God of
justice. I wait for him and I am blessed!—Isaiah 30:18
From the Bible we read of men who strengthened
themselves in the Lord. The main benefit of one
strengthening himself in the Lord… is that his faith
becomes stronger and he becomes more confident in
God’s ability. In other words…he knows that he knows
that he knows that God can handled the situation…
whatever it might be. You and I can have that same
kind wall scaling confidence in God. So let’s start
building ourselves up in the Lord and one way of
doing this is by declaring ALOUD encouraging bible
declarations. Why aloud? Because the spoken word
of God has creative and wonder-working power that
changes lives and circumstances. Glory!! Here’s a
few Scriptures to start you on your way.
I hope in the Lord, I seek him and he is good to me.—
Lamentations 3:25
This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be
glad in it.—Psalm 118:24
The Lord is my sun and shield, the Lord bestows favor
and honor. No good thing will he withhold from me as
I walk up rightly.—Psalm 84:11
The Lord blesses me. His favor surrounds me as with
a shield.—Psalm 5:12
The LORD is my refuge in times of trouble.—Psalm
When my soul is feeling down, I do not rely on my
feelings. I remember my hope is in God, for I will yet
praise Him, my Savior and my God.—Psalm 42: 5-6
I am growing and becoming strong in spirit, filled with

tock up on a superfood that’s a no-brainer: Wild Blueberries have superior antioxidant
capacity compared with other fruits and veggies. Best of all, these little blue powerhouses from Maine and Canada are also incredibly convenient, thanks to their yearround availability in your grocer’s frozen fruit section. They’re just as healthy as fresh
and may retain their nutritional value longer.
Here are two quick tips to help you pack a powerful nutritious punch into your diet:
Make sure they say wild — Check the bag to ensure you’re getting authentic, frozenfresh Wild Blueberries. If the word “Wild” isn’t on the front of the package, scan the list
of ingredients on the back.
Check the size — Be sure to select the little wild ones. When in doubt, feel the berries in
the bag — if they’re “pea-sized,” you’ve got the wild ones.
With twice the antioxidant capacity of larger, cultivated blueberries, Wild Blueberries freeze
perfectly, retaining their superior quality, color and sweet, tangy flavor.

Baby Boomers: Bathroom Updates That Increase Livability And Home Value
to come.”
Quinn has helped countless people update their bathrooms
to add modern style and comfort so they can age in their
current home safely. Here are his top recommendations when
upgrading your bathroom while keeping health, comfort and
safety in mind.
Baby boomers are a smart group when it comes to home
updates. While embracing life today, they fully recognize
that in the future, their homes may need upgrades to help
them live well and stay safe. The bathroom naturally gets
the most attention and for good reason - it’s one of the most
frequently used rooms in a home and also one with many
hazards. Baby boomers are turning towards safer bathing
options to support their changing lifestyle including walkin baths, handicap accessible showers, and other supportive
“Baby boomers value being able to live out their golden years
to the fullest, and aging in place is a key component of that,”
says Jim Quinn, installation manager for Premier Care in
Bathing. “They are being proactive about making bathroom
upgrades now so they can enjoy the benefits for many years
1. Safe flooring
Cold, slick bathroom floors can be a major slipping hazard.
When renovating a bathroom space, it’s wise to evaluate the
flooring and, if necessary, replace it with an option that is
both comfortable and safe. Some people choose to carpet
the bathroom because it is warmer and eliminates the slip
hazards of traditional hardwood or ceramic flooring, as
well as the tripping hazards of rugs. Another option is slipresistant, textured vinyl. Keep feet comfortable and add an
upscale element to your bathroom by incorporating radiant
heat underneath.
2. Walk-in bath
Water and heat therapy can be ideal for arthritis and other
aches associated with aging, making a bathtub an asset in
a home. But as people age, it can be physically difficult to
use a traditional bathtub. That’s why a walk-in tub is a wise
investment. Receiving the Ease-Of-Use Commendation from
the Arthritis Foundation, walk-in-tubs from Premier Care in
Bathing provide baby boomers and seniors with an easy-touse alternative. The most popular model - the Sanctuary - fits
in a traditional bathtub space and has a wide, low-level entry,
slip-resistant seat and backrest, temperature-controlled hot
water, and a Hydrovescent therapy option. Other walk-in tub
options may be ideal based on individual needs.
It’s All In The Details - How To
Accessorize Your Home Exterior
3. Replace dated hardware
Bathroom drawer handles and knobs are often small and can
be difficult to grab with limited dexterity. Add modern style
to your bathroom by replacing your existing hardware and
accessories with stylish new options that are also easy to grip.
Explore hardware options that are large and simple to grab.
New hardware is a quick, affordable upgrade that makes a
bathroom easy to use for people of all ages while enhancing
interior design. While you’re upgrading the hardware
elements, consider installing grab bars in key locations in the
room, such as around the toilet or shower.
4. Update lighting
Any interior designer will tell you that lighting is a key
element of a home’s style as well as functionality. In the
bathroom, lighting is particularly important because it also
adds an element of safety. Aging eyes need quality light to
see well - so be sure to incorporate task and ambient lighting
into your bathroom renovations. Baby boomers often add
a dimmer that adjusts bathroom lighting so it can be fully
on when showering or getting ready for the day, and then
dimmed softly for easy access at night or during long soaks
in the walk-in tub.
“These types of updates are wise investments for baby boomers.
They often increase the overall value of a home while also
giving the homeowners the peace of mind that they’ll be able
to enjoy the space well into the future,” concludes Quinn. For

bathtubs and other solutions for making living at home more

Cellular PVC trim and moulding products are easy for your
contractor to install, and are engineered to work with virtually
any siding type, including vinyl siding, stone veneer, brick, fiber
cement and stucco.
“Since trim is incredibly visible, it should be chosen with the
same care as siding,” says Jerry Blais, vice president of marketing
for Ply Gem siding group. “The use of low-maintenance
products like cellular PVC trim and mouldings really give
homeowners a durable and versatile option for making the
home exterior stand out from the crowd. The product can also
be painted to complement other exterior materials such as
windows, vinyl siding, stone veneer, shutters and more to create
a cohesive design.”
To achieve that cohesive exterior home design, Ply Gem and BSB
Design recommend first determining the type of architectural
style you are trying to achieve, traditional or modern. This will
help narrow the options for not only trim style, but also window
grille patterns, color, siding type and accessories like shutters.-
When considering exterior home improvements during spring
and summer, many homeowners go for updates such as the
replacement of siding or windows. These projects can make the
home look great while boosting energy efficiency, but no matter
how much homeowners invest in siding or windows, it will only
look as good as the trim used to complete the job.
Trim products are designed to be used around windows, doors,
eaves and gables, and for application on your home’s corners
and porch columns. Many installers opt for basic corner posts,
J-channels and finishing accessories, which are functional, but
also detract from the home’s overall style. Going beyond the
basics is very affordable and can make a big difference in your
“One mistake that homeowners and contractors often make
in an exterior remodel is finishing a beautiful window and
siding replacement with basic or inexpensive trimwork,” says
To help provide inspiration, design guides are available for
recommendations on how to make the most of cellular PVC
trim and other exterior products with various architectural
styles. Once you have a style, consider ways to accessorize your
home with trim:
Steve Moore, architect with BSB Design. “Working with your
contractor to accessorize with high-quality, low-maintenance
trim around windows, doors and the roofline helps complete the
look and enhance architectural features. Trim and mouldings
are the glue that ties the look together.”
Whether you prefer a modern, traditional, rustic or Victorian
style, there are many trim options on today’s market to consider,
including products made of wood, aluminum, fiber cement,
engineered wood and vinyl, each with their own unique features.
But if you want the look of real wood without the maintenance
or having to replace in a few years, turn to building products
manufacturers like Ply Gem that now offer cellular PVC trim
with a 30-year warranty. Features of this material typically
include a wood grain or smooth finish option, natural wood
dimensions and resistance to rotting, cracking and splitting.
Due to the superior material, paint will also adhere better and
stay bright longer than painted wood.

Suppress The Sneeze: Tips To Help Prep Your Home For Allergy Season
The season of sneezing has made its annual return and that
can only mean one thing for homeowners: preventative cleaning measures. Especially true for allergy and asthma sufferers,
there is no better time to get a head start on prepping your
home against unwanted allergens than the early weeks of
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America
(AAFA), nearly 40 million individuals suffer from tree pollen
allergies in the United States alone, the first phase of which occurs in the month of March. As pollen-potent trees begin their
blossom, it becomes increasingly more challenging for homeowners to maintain a breathe-easy household atmosphere.
But, in fact, it might get easier. According to a recent study
conducted by airmid healthgroup, a professional deep cleaning from Stanley Steemer has been proven to be effective in
removing up to 97 percent of surface allergens.
Helping to eliminate allergen hot spots and triggers is made
easier when following these tips from airmid and the deep
cleaning experts Stanley Steemer:
Ongoing TLC
Dirt and dust can quickly add up if the proper steps aren’t taken. To get the job done, vacuum heavy traffic areas two to three
times a week and all other carpets at least once a week.
Keep the outdoor elements where they belong
Keep windows closed and place your air conditioner on recirculate on high-allergy days or while doing yard work. These activities may churn up dirt, dust and pollen into the air which can,
in turn, end up in the home.
Have a roadmap for cleaning
There is a method to the madness of cleaning. Beware of feather
dusters that simply push dust off surfaces into the air. Instead,
try moist cloths or special dusters made to capture dust. Also,
consider cleaning in this order: begin with air ducts, followed by
upholstery and drapes, and finishing with floors.
Welcome an allergy-free season with a welcome mat
Are You Getting Enough Sleep?
By Dr. Tim Kosterman
of Kosterman Chiropractic Center of Clinton
Some of us feel that sleep
is a luxury. Demanding
jobs mean getting up
early, and for some of us
going to bed early feels
like you’ve lost the day, so we compensate by sleeping
less. But is that good enough? The oft-cited optimal
level of sleep for an adult is the magic eight hours.
However, individuals vary in their sleep needs from as
little as five hours to as much as ten hours per night.
Feeling drowsy during the day might mean you’re not
getting enough winks, so how can you tell if you’re
sleeping too much or too little?
A recent study conducted at the University of Westminster has concluded that there are people who are at
their best and who are ready for action first thing in the
morning, and another group who just cannot do morn-
ings well. This may seem obvious, but why are some
people early birds, and others night owls? The group
who were awake early in the morning was found to have
higher levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, than those
who prefer to sleep in. The results of this study indicate
that there may be a physiological difference between
early risers and late sleepers. The difference in cortisol
levels may also contribute to different temperaments
between the different sleep groups. Those who awaken
early in the morning, tend to be busier and more concentrated, but are also angrier and have less energy
at the end of the day than their late-rising counterparts.
In late-riser group, people are more likely to be relaxed
and less busy. Cortisol is a hormone known to affect
both mood and concentration. While it’s hard to specify
an ideal time to get up in the morning, if you’re feeling
stressed there is an increased chance you’ll feel better
if you add an extra half an hour of sleep to your night.
A doormat at the entrance to a house is a proven way to reduce
the amount of dirt that enters the home. However, the cleaning
can’t stop there. Homeowners should vacuum under indoor
welcome mats and area rugs periodically to help remove any
loose dirt that might be trapped.
Go with a deeper clean for spring
People should maintain their homes, as they maintain their
teeth - brushing every day and visiting the dentist at least twice
a year. The same regular care goes for carpets. However, for
those suffering from asthma and allergies, airmid healthgroup
recommends regular vacuuming along with a professional
Stanley Steemer deep cleaning every three to four months is
important for allergy/asthma-sufferers.
Let’s face it, cleaning is probably the last thing on your mind
when those dreadful allergy symptoms start to creep up. However, prepping your home against allergy season can be as welcome as a breath of fresh air with the help of the pros at Stanley
Steemer. Visit to join in this season’s fight
against allergens.
What about the effects of sleep deprivation? It is well
known that sleep deprivation can be dangerous, especially if you are driving or using heavy machinery. The
effect on driving may be as dangerous as driving under
the influence. Not sleeping enough can also suppress
your immune system and increases your perception of
Most scientists believe eight hours of sleep is a safe
amount and is enough to function comfortably. If you’re
alert during the day, then chances are you’re sleeping
enough. However if you feel a dip during the day, then
even a 10- or 15-minute nap can make a big difference
in your concentration and performance. If you can’t get
enough sleep on a certain day, you can always make
it up afterwards. Sleep longer by going to bed earlier,
sleep in on the weekend or even take a nap to help to
replenish the sleep debt left. In general, however, try
to have a regular sleep schedule to keep your body as
rested and ready-to-go as possible.
Good health is a combination of many factors including
your nutrition, preventative care, appropriate corrective
care and the small choices you make every day in the
course of living.

Chamber Chat
With Janna Bass
The Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce
strives to serve all businesses within each municipality
throughout Sampson County as best as possible. With
Sampson County being the 2nd largest county in the
state in land mass, sometimes our demographic
composition can be an asset while other times, remains a challenge for economic development.
Although each week I travel throughout the county, so often my schedule is preplanned with a specific reason and tasks to accomplish in each municipality, I
don’t have the opportunity to spend the entire day visiting members and learning
how we can better assist each community. Therefore, at least once a year we
have Chamber Days, a specific day reserved for each individual, business or
organization within each municipality. One reason I truly enjoy Chamber Days
is to have the opportunity to speak with each individual on a personal basis. To
discuss the opportunities the Chamber provides, the needs of the business/organization, the needs of the municipality, how the Chamber can better serve that
community, and much more.
This past week we have finalized the 2013 Chamber Days and I encourage you
to take advantage of this opportunity. Save the date for your specific Chamber
Day: May 16: Salemburg, June 5: Autryville, July 11: Clinton, August 22: Turkey,
September 26: Harrells, October 24: Roseboro, November 7: Newton Grove and
December 12: Garland
With nearly 400 members, the Chamber works hard to promote commerce and
a strong quality of life; however we need to hear from you. We need to learn
more about your current needs and I promise that if we are able, we will do our
best to assist. Those within the Chamber have a passion for Sampson County
and their community. Where the chamber is uniting those that realize we can
accomplish more together than individually. Use the Chamber as a resource
and for assistance; let the chamber work for you.
For more information about Chamber Days provided through the Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce, give us a call at (910) 592-6177. We look forward
to working with each of you to ensure Sampson County continues in economic
growth and a strong quality of life.
