Design Chair Phillip Wright shared he did get some preliminary pricing quotations for landscaping and putting in a
gazebo, tables/chairs, fencing for the vacant corner lot that the town has a lease agreement with the bank for over the next five years. This quotation was in response to Kevin
Bowman’s request so that he could take this before the Kiwanis Club members in order for them to possibly grant them up to $15,000 for this community project. Mr. Wright sug-
gested that the gazebo could be ordered and placed on the lot prior to July 10 and that subsequent work on the lot could begin even with the gazebo in place. Mr. Wright also said
that he is working with a local surveyor to create a base sheet in order to consider streetscape items such as planting trees, benches, etc. He would be also working with STMS
Designer Lew Holloway to create this sheet.
Economic Restructuring –Co-Chair JB Griffith reported that he was beginning to just see and feel very positive things happening in the downtown area and was very pleased
overall. He noted the recent new business activity and the businesses working together to promote downtown and each other.
Following the updates the STMS committee spent the remainder of the meeting going through logging their annual statistics which is reported to the NC Department of Com-
merce. (See attached). A STMS annual report will be generated from all of the Small Town Main Street’s cumulative statistics.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:35 p.m. The next meeting is September 14, 2010 at 5:30 p.m. Liberty Town hall— Executive Committee meets at 5:00 p.m.

Details of a child's headaches determine how to treat them

Although parents may be surprised to hear "my head hurts" from their child, current research indi-
cates that 15 percent to 20 percent of school-age children in the U.S. experience headaches at least
once per week. Because headache is a nonspecific symptom, it may have many causes, but child-
hood headaches are actually quite common and fortunately are rarely caused by serious health prob-
lems. When it comes to headaches, details are important. When a headache develops abruptly, or is Hand Car Wash

needed, and you should contact your child's physician urgently for advice. In the more common

People Who See Chiropractors Are Healthier!
11-5 [Closed Sun]
It's true. Numerous studies have confirmed what chiropractors and their patients have known for a
long time: people who visit chiropractors for regular care
are healthier - no matter how old or young. For example,
in one study the researchers concluded: "[Chiropractic] AWESO
patients report significant positive changes in physical
health, mental/emotional state, stress and life enjoyment."
While in another study it was found that: "Chiropractic is
associated with significant benefits in physical and men-
tal/emotional state and combined wellness." (2) In yet
another study the authors found that: "Chiropractic users
were less likely to be hospitalized, less likely to use a Visit Us For Our Huge Clothing
nursing home, and less likely to use prescription drugs,
more likely to have better health, to exercise, to be mobile." One of the more interesting things about Blowout Sale All Month
this study was that it
involved people over 75 years of age!!! (3) There's even more. An informal research poll we recently
