Used Prescription Drop Box

posted 10/21/2011

The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office has installed a drop box designed for prescription pills in the first floor elevator entrance at the Sheriff’s Office.

The drop box was obtained by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and provided by the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators. The box is designed for people to drop off their expired and/or no longer needed medication. According to recent statistics, more than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs.

Each day, approximately 2,500 teenagers use prescription drugs to get high for the first time. This new drop box gives people the ability and opportunity to properly and safely dispose of their prescription drugs and assure that they do not get in the wrong hands.

The Randolph County Sheriff’s office is located at 727 McDowell Rd. in Asheboro. The drop box itself is located in the entrance to the Sheriff’s Office, where the elevator is located. People can drop off their prescription drugs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The prescription drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked and no paper work to fill out. The prescription drop box is for prescription drugs only. The Sheriff’s Office cannot allow any syringes or liquids to be dropped off in the drug drop box.

Randolph County Quilt Trail

posted 7/28/2011 from Piedmont Conservation Council, Inc.

The Randolph County Quilt Trail showcases the heritage of farm families in rural Randolph County. Twenty-nine farms have installed quilt squares on their barns. Several of the barns on the trail are over one hundred years old. Each quilt square is different, and many have a special meaning, representing family history or tradition. Visitors are encouraged to stop and take photographs from the roadside. Several farms may also offer seasonal produce or other goods for sale. The Quilt Trail is a self-guided tour. While touring the Quilt Trail, please be considerate of private property.

The Randolph County Quilt Trail began in 2010 as a project of the Piedmont Conservation Council, with grant funding from the Natural Resource Conservation Service. The Randolph County Soil & Water Conservation District received and approved applications, and members of the Randolph County Quilters Guild volunteered their time to paint and hang the quilt squares.

Severe Weather Awareness Week

posted 2/28/2011

Governor Bev Perdue in conjunction with the National Weather Service and Department of Crime Control and Public Safety have declared this week as Severe Weather Awareness week for 2011. All week long the national weather service will be issuing informative messages to help you prepare for severe weather. Each day will cover a different topic. Monday will define severe thunderstorms. Tuesday we will cover lightning. Wednesday's topic will be tornadoes. Thursday we will talk about flooding...and Friday...the alert process.

On Wednesday...March 2nd at 9:30 am...the National Weather Service in cooperation with local broadcasters will conduct the statewide tornado drill in the form of a Required Monthly Test on all NOAA weather radio and public alert systems. The alarm test will activate the State Emergency Alert System and be carried by local radio broadcasters. This will allow residents the opportunity to practice their tornado drills and enact safety plans.

Over the last several years a number of North Carolina residents have been injured and even killed by lightning…tornadoes and flooding. Property losses from tornadoes since 2005 have exceeded $53 million. The recent active weather pattern this winter… if carried over through the spring could bring increased severe weather activity. Everyone across North Carolina should use this week to think about what to do when threatened by lightning...hail...flooding...and tornadoes. Thunderstorms bring a variety of threats...and knowing how to protect you and your family’s lives is important.

Visit the National Weather Service website for details.
