Belmont Fire Dept. celebrates 100 years By Alan Hodge

The Belmont Fire Dept. celebrated 100 years of service to the city last Sunday with a gathering at the headquarters station on Keener Blvd. A large number of firefighters past and present, dignitaries, friends, and family attended the event where they shared memories and remarks of the department’s past and present. “Look at all these folks,” said fire chief George Altice. “They are the foundation of the Belmont Fire Dept. There’s a million dollars worth of equipment here, but it’s nothing without the people.” The exact date the Belmont Fire Dept. got going is lost to memory, but the best account puts it at December 12, 1918. William Crawford was the first chief, followed by C.P. Lineberger. The first volunteers were H.B. Gaston Sr., Prep Hall, Dave Hall, Wayne Fite, and several others.

Mt. Holly to Kids pitch in to create public art receive a $25,000 in Belmont and Cramerton State Farm grant By Alan Hodge

edited by Alan Hodge The City of Mt. Holly has received the exciting news it will be getting a $25,000 grant from State Farm Insurance to help pay for costs associated with construction of a Veterans Healing Garden. In just 10 days in August, 167,000 people cast 4.5 Million votes in support of their favorite causes. As a result, 40 communities, in 19 states, including Mt. Holly, will be getting help from State Farm Neighborhood Assist, a crowd-sourced philanthropic program that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods. Non-profits affiliated with each of the top 40 causes receive grants to address them. Mount Holly’s State Farm agent Adam Lee, in conjunction with Leigh Brinkley of the Mount Holly Farmers Market, submitted the grant application this spring. The project, a Veterans Healing Garden Program, connects local veterans and therapeutic resources to community and enhances support of Mount Holly's veterans and their families by bridging veterans' sense of isolation to the community. The veteran population in NC is over 775k, ranking 8th highest in the nation. Each year nearly 1,000 veterans from the city of Mount Holly are recognized at a Veterans Day event hosted by the local historical society. Mt. Holly is also a Purple Heart Community, and there is a strong commitment to its veteran citizens. The current Veterans Park offers green space and playground area but is underutilized due to limited connectivity See GRANT page 3

Right now, the chain link fence around the city owned parking lot on Mill St. behind Sammy's Neighborhood Pub in downtown Belmont is a rather industrial looking eyesore. However, through the efforts of the city and students from Belmont Central Elementary, in a few weeks it's going to be transformed into an eye celebration. The idea is to fill the chain links with about 2,000 colorful plastic flowers- all hand crafted by the kids. Dr. Jim Dobies was on the design committee for the Downtown Belmont Development Committee when the idea of having the students make a new piece of public art was floated. “We wanted to bring more public art to downtown Belmont,” Dr. Dobies said. “The committee looked at several different projects and this one had the most potential.”

BELMONT FIRE from page 1

In 1924 the department got a truck made from a Model T Ford. This was followed by another truck in 1929. The 1929 truck was able to make use of hydrants on Main, Catawba, and Woodrow streets as well as those near the textile mills. By 1934, Belmont city officials made driving the firetruck part of a policeman’s duties. Some of the first drivers included Logan Armstrong, Wiley Williams, George Caldwell, and C.O. Hinson. Volunteer firefighters responded when they heard alarms go off. In 1936, Wiley Williams was named chief. In 1938 Raymond Garrison was named treasurer. After WWII, the fire department’s ranks of volunteers swelled with returning servicemen. These guys included Roscoe Helton, Mack Huffstetler, John Limerick, Buck Nixon, and many more. The year 1947 saw Parks Elmore named chief. He was followed by Charlie Starnes. In 1951 Everett Gantt was named chief and he was succeeded in 1955 by John Limerick. The current station on Keener Blvd. is named for him. In 1952 the first two permanent firefighters, Talmadge Anderson and Frank Rodden were hired. Two more were added in 1954Parks Elmore and Mack Huffstetler. In 1959 Reg Huffstetler and Johnny Hamilton were brought on board. The 1960s saw the fire department’s volunteer ranks grow with guys like Red Wilson, Walker Hyde, Benny Brown, Joe Reep and more added to the roster. Volunteers had to buy their own coats and boots, but were paid $50 a year for their service. In 1957 the department got a new truck. The truck was picked up at the factory in Indiana by Ken Smith and George McLaughen. Since its earliest days, the Belmont Fire Dept. had operated out of a building (still standing ) on S. Main St. In 1969 the city council approved an $8,000 capital outlay plan to build a new station. This led to the eventual construction of the current station on Keener Blvd. In early May 1974, John Limerick broke ground for the facility that bears his mane. Currently the Belmont Fire Dept. has 19 total firefighters working out of the Keener Blvd. and South Point Rd. stations. The department has three pumper truck, a ladder truck, a brush truck, and a water patrol boat. The department will be getting a new truck in early 2019 that’s being built to replace a 1990 model one. The department responds to about 1,200 calls for service each year. The Belmont Fire Dept. has always been about family and community and current division captain Craig Austin is well acquainted with that fact. He and his kin have served for 50 years including his father Tony, his uncle Jimmy who was chief, and his uncle Ronnie who was assistant chief. “I pretty much grew up at the fire department,” Craig said. “I was here for the 75th anniversary celebration.” As the city grows, so will the Belmont Fire Dept. Austin says volunteers are as important now as they were way back in 1918. “Anyone who is interested in volunteering can come by the station and get an application,” he said.”The fire department is a special group of people to be a part of.”

to downtown. Additionally, there is currently no sustainable program to assist veterans with their unique needs. In many cases, the most painful wounds aren't physical. Thousands of veterans live with symptoms of combat stress, PTSD (1 in 3 affected), and other mental health issues. Research shows that spending time in outdoor retreat settings provides rejuvenation to heal brokenness into wholeness. The $25,000 will address the unmet needs of Mt. Holly veterans by providing a location and a program for the healing garden. The garden will sit at the edge of the existing farmers market to serve as the terminus connecting the existing Veterans Park with the market. The central location of garden will convey strong support to our veterans and their families. The funds will provide the construction materials including a water source, soil preparation, and plants for a topiary garden that will be maintained by veterans of the community. Professional signage will mark the location, explain the program's purpose, and bring awareness to our community of the ways to support and to honor our veterans. Lastly, the funds will allow the community to retain the services of world-renowned topiary gardener, Pearl Fryar, who has already agreed to train local veterans on garden care. Pearl, a veteran himself, is passionate about helping veterans and their families find purpose in serving their community. The Veterans Healing Garden Program will have an enduring impact on the community due to its location, its ongoing cycle of training, and its connection to community partners. The garden will provide a dedicated gathering place for veterans situated in a highly-visible location in the heart of Mount Holly and will become the terminus connecting Veterans Park and Farmers Market. Visitors from surrounding areas and community volunteers will have the opportunity to engage with local veterans to learn from their experiences. Field trips and other student-centered programs will be offeredas well, thus establishing a legacy of learning. Additionally, this garden space and its accompanying workshops to train veterans on how to care for it has the potential to become a pilot program for local communities in the state, even the nation. Lastly, the garden program will serve as the catalyst uniting several community organizations to a common goal of supporting and honoring our veterans. “State Farm is here to help life go right in neighborhoods all across the country. We look forward to seeing the changes in these 40 communities because of these Neighborhood Assist grants,” said Allison Bertsche, Public Affairs Director at State Farm. At least one submission was received from each of the 50 states. The State Farm Review Committee selected the top 200 finalists from 2,000 submissions. In the seven years of the program, more than 250 causes have received a total of $7 million to enact change in their communities. For a complete list of this year’s top 40 causes, please visit:

Mt. Holly having a European style Lantern Parade The parade route will begin at Ida Rankin Elementary School and continue down West Central Avenue, turn right on South Main Street, and end at the newly christened permanent trellis system for the Mount Holly Farmer’s Market. The parade will be led by members of the official drumline of the Panthers, PurrCussion. Kathleen Doody of Toronto, Canada will be on hand to judge the lanterns for the prizes. Doody is an artist with over 20 years of lantern-making experience, and conducts lantern parades internationally. Mary Tucker, owner and CEO of UPIC Health will present the awards to the winning teachers and artists. While traditional lantern parades are held all over the world, it is a unique event in the U.S. and the Mount Holly Community Development Foundation is proud to bring this tradition to the area where school teachers can mentor their students in problem solving skills, math, structural design, fine motor skills, and creativity to facilitate the creation of the lanterns. The Mount Holly Community Development Foundation has also sponsored bringing artist Olive Stack from Listowel, Ireland to Mount Holly to teach traditional lantern making workshops to area school teachers and artists. The foundation is supplying materials for the teachers to take back to their classrooms where they will teach their students the art of lantern making. The teachers and their students will participate in the parade alongside the artists (who will supply their own materials), and the teachers and artists will vie for $3,000 in prize money sponsored by UPIC Health headquartered in northern Virginia.

Carefully listen while I confess. My name is Angela, and I am a Holy Communion snob. If Holy Communion is not consecrated and served a certain way, I become discombobulated. Holy Communion must be by intinction, dipping the bread into the wine. I do not reach for the bread; it must be placed into my hand. As the person puts the bread into my hand, please make sure it is a big enough piece to dip where my fingers do not touch the wine. And, make sure you do not smash the bread into my hand. Afterward, I make the sign of the cross and kneel in prayer. Holy Communion served any other way will not suffice. When I was serving the local church, a member approached me after worship. In a disgruntled manner, she said, “I didn’t like that hymn we sung today.” I replied, “I’m sorry. I did not know we were singing for your glory.” My story and the church member’s statement are misplaced priorities. We complain when it does not go OUR way. Does this sound familiar in your local congregation? If the church does not operate the way we think, we often get upset and make sure someone is aware of our thoughts on how it should be. If we are not heard, we seek other pastures only to stir up the same angst in another parish. “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?” James 4:1 NIV. Our society is a consumer-driven culture.

We seek things that will bring us comfort. We can order items that suit our taste and desire. Therefore, when we Rev. Angela Pleasants come to the local District church, we are in the Superintendent culture-driven frame of Catawba Valley of mind. As a result, Methodist Churches we come to be served rather than go and serve. “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” I Peter 2:9 NASB. Culture does not determine the mission of the church. In this passage, we are reminded that we belong to God and sent to continue his mission in the world. As we draw close to God, his love will continually fill our hearts. Soon, serving and worship is out of a loving response to a God who first reached out to us. Does this mean we should no longer have an opinion about worship and serving? Of course, we will have ideas about how to worship and serve God. But, what we offer should always be about glorifying God and not our agenda. And, do not hinder the ideas of others. “Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory because of your loving-kindness, because of your truth.” Psalm 115:1 NASB.

“Autumnfest” at Henry’s Chapel Church In the hymn, “A Charge to Keep I Have”, there is a line that reads “to serve this present age, my calling to fulfill”. Although with a very small congregation, serving this present age continues to be the desire and directive of the pastor and members of Henry’s Chapel A.M.E. Zion Church of Belmont. This church was established well over a hundred years. In an effort to provide added service to the Henry’s Chapel community of Belmont, and our communityat-large, the church will have it’s first “Autumnfest” on Saturday, October 13 from 12pm to 5pm. A “Neighborhood Watch Program of

Information” will be given from 12pm to 1pm that day by law enforcement representatives. The furtherance of Autumnfest will include: food serving; various indoor and outdoor games and recreational activities; vendors; and musical entertainment. Also, the South Point Volunteer Fire truck(s), along with classic and sport cars, will be on site. Along with the Autumnfest, Henry’s Chapel will have three nights of revival services. The guest preachers are: Rev. Henrico White, Weeping Willow AME Zion Church (Oct. 15) Charlotte; Rev. David Scott Cunningham, China Grove AME Zion

Church (Oct. 16) , Charlotte; and Rev. Dr. Ralph Williamson, Clinton Chapel AME Zion, also of Charlotte. (Oct. 17) The church’s homecoming will be held Sunday, October 21 with Rev. Charles Wesley Reid as the 11 am speaker. Dinner will be served at 1:30 pm. Rev. Joseph Shaw, a former pastor of the church, will be the speaker for the 3 pm service. Music for that afternoon will be provided by the Grand Hands Mass Choir and guest churches. Rev. Iva Lawson is the senior pastor of Henry’s Chapel.

PUBLIC ART from page 1

Since they received the assignment, the Belmont Central kids have been hard at work creating the flowers. So far, they've crafted about 1,000 of them. The way the flowers are made is by spray painting plastic water bottles, then cutting out the bottom and then cutting the bottle sides lengthwise to form petals. A wire is then inserted through the cap that will be tied to the fence. “The kids have had a great time making flowers,” Smith said. “They are very creative.” Belmont Central third grader Kerry is one of the flower children. “I think making the flowers is kinda cool,” she said. “I like making tulips.” Kerry's classmate Kaiden agreed. “It's really fun making the flowers,” he said. Likewise from Hailey. “It's fun to make them and it will be good for the town when they are put on the fence,” she said. Once the flowers are finished students from South Point High will help with the install. “We will be ready to put them on the fence later this month,” said Smith. Belmont Central principal Phyllis Whitworth is rightfully proud of how her students have embraced the public art concept. “This is an excellent project,” Whitworth said. “It's a wonderful opportunity for the students to share their creativity with the community.”

The fence flowers are part of a growing effort to bring public art to Belmont. Earlier this year, Gaston Day School students created eight 4x8' art panels that were installed on the side of the 1949 former Bell Telephone building off N. Main St. in downtown Belmont. The building is owned by Jonathan Taylor. The panels have been an eye catching addition to the downtown area. Kids, and grownups too, are also creating public art in Cramerton. This past Saturday, the Cramerton Community Committee hosted a free family event called Pop Up Fence Art Project at the Cramerton Community Center on Julian Street. This event was open to all ages. Each artist decorated a fence picket with the design of their choosing. The pickets were then reassemble into small fence segments to display throughout town. Cramerton Community Committee member Jeanne Valliere explained how the project came about. “Cramerton’s Parks and Rec. director Eric Smallwood approached our group with the idea and we ran with it as a team.” The pickets will be on display around town at various locations and times including festivals. “We called it Pop Up Art because that’s what they’ll do..pop up,” said Valliere. Lowes gave the committee a special deal on the pickets which will also be slathered in polyurethane clear to help them stand the weather.

This was the scene last March when art panels created by Gaston Day School students were installed in downtown Belmont. Photos by Alan Hodge

South Point beats East Gaston 42-0 By John Wilson

In the Southwestern Conference opener for both teams the South Point Red Raiders rode a solid running attack and strong special teams play to a 42-0 win over the East Gaston Warriors. The annual rivalry between the Red Raiders and Warriors proved to be one sided as South Point shut down East Gaston. Early in the game, Ray Grier showed that he is not only a good wide receiver but an excellent return man as well. Grier returned two punts for touchdowns in the first quarter, one for 60 yards and the other for 55 yards. In the second quarter Nassem Jones took over and rumbled for three touchdowns from eight, seven, and three yards out. At halftime the Red Raiders led 35-0. In the third quarter the Red Raiders started to rotate their players. The names and numbers changed, but the results proved to be the same. South Point’s Hunter Hogue scored the final touchdown of the game in the third quarter off of a 7-yard run. South Point amassed 346 yards of total offense. 165 yards of that came from Naseem Jones. Wingback Caleb Gibson had a solid game as well. Gibson had 52 yards off of four carries. East Gaston had 108 yards of total offense. Almost 70% of it came from some hard running from senior Brodie Hilton who ran for 72 yards off of 20 carries. Head coach Adam Hodge was pleased with the final results and the fact that people got into the game that don’t normally get a chance to see the field. “A good game,” coach Hodge said. “Lots of people got to play. That’s good for our depth.” South Point is now riding a three game win streak. As the Red Raiders go deeper into the season the team and coaches know what need to do work their way to the top of the conference. “We need to continue to get better everyday,” Hodge noted. A win over a rival is always sweet but now South Point needs to focus on their next game. This week the 5-2 Red Raiders will travel to Forest City to battle the East Rutherfordton Cavaliers. The Cavs have been the surprise team of the conference so far. They go into their game against the Red Raiders undefeated at 7-0. As for East Gaston. Well, this year has been hard on the Warriors. EG dropped to 0-5 and are still looking for their first win of the year. This week EG will also travel to Forest City to take on Chase. The Trojans have struggled this years well. Chase is 2-5.

Cramer comes from behind to beat Burns 42-38 by John Wilson

The Stuart Cramer football team went into their Big South matchup against Burns down some key starters. Tight end Kendall Karr, defensive lineman TJ Leake, and linebacker Karson Setzer all sat due to injuries. Despite the setbacks, Cramer was able to pull off a spectacular come from behind win to beat the Bulldogs 42-38. This was a game with a lot of scoring. In the first half the Bulldogs and Storm played a little Tit for Tat. Every time Cramer scored Burns responded. When Tyreese Morris scored a 16-yard touchdown in the first quarter, Burns countered with a touchdown of their own. When Kaiser Kayton broke off a 22-yard scoring run in the second quarter, Burns responded with another score. And yet again when Kayton broke off another touchdown this one off of a 38-yard run Burns matched with a TD of their own. It wasn’t until the end of the second quarter that Cramer was able to break the maddening back and forth. With 40 seconds to go in the half Morris broke off of 54yard run that put the Storm ahead. Burns didn’t get a chance to counter because time ran out. Both teams hit the locker rooms with Cramer ahead 2821. When Burns took the field to open the second half they were focused. The Bulldogs scored a touchdown and field goal in the third. Cramer countered with a Luke Carpenter to Demarrick Floyd

62-yard touchdown pass. Cramer and Burns went into the fourth quarter with the Storm up 35-31 In the fourth quarter Burns pushed ahead with a touchdown run with just under five minutes to go. With the Bulldogs up 38-35 it was do or die for Cramer. As heroic as Burns had played, the Storm were determined to not let this one slip away. With 1:04 left in the game Carpenter hit Devin Baldwin with a 33-yard touchdown strike to take the lead. After Baldwin kicked the PAT Cramer led 42-38. There was still time for the Bulldogs to come back. However, the Cramer defense, who to that point had not played well, decided that it was time to make an impact. In the final seconds of the game Cramer’s “D” stiffened up and prevented the Bulldogs from scoring. “It was a tough battle in the Big South,” head coach Ben McMillan said. “Our offense played really well. We were able to make a drive at the end of the game and make the go-ahead score.” The Bulldogs had 510 yards of total offense compared to Cramer’s 360. The Cramer defense definitely bent, but it didn’t break. The Storm defense held their ground when it mattered the most. “Our defense struggled a little,” coach McMillan said. “But we were able to make some key stops. We had a few guys out with injuries and some other guys needed to step up. We scored with 1:04 on the clock. The defense was able to hold them

Cramerton partners with ASU to innovate pool programing In partnership with the Appalachian State Recreation and Park Management program, the Cramerton Parks and Recreation Department hosted an internship from veteran lifeguard Eunice McSwain (pictured) during Summer 2018. The result was nothing short of extraordinary. During the 2017 post pool season evaluation process, Parks and Recreation Director Eric Smallwood, along with senior staff, determined there were two significant areas for opportunity. First, all pool swim lessons filled-up almost immediately. Second, Wednesday’s were overwhelmingly the lowest attended days at the Cramerton Community Pool. The average number was just shy of 15 patrons per day. McSwain’s internship focused on how to capitalize on these opportunities. After a diligent process of planning and approvals with the Cramerton Parks and Recreation Department and the Appalachian State Recreation Management Program, the outline of McSwain’s 2018 internship was formed. The Cramerton Community Pool would offer special, themed events every Wednesday and would double the amount of swim lessons offered in the past. With themed events that included food trucks every Wednesday such as Hawaiian Day, Deck Art Day, The Great American Splash, Christmas in July and the Back to School Bash to name a few, attendance soared from a dismal 15 patrons a day a year ago to 56, a 270% increase year over year. So, compared to 2017 and previous summer averages, Wednesday was the highest attended day in 2018. Furthermore, the addition of evening swim lessons in this year took the total from 36 participants in 2017 to 61 total participants. McSwain’s internship was very comprehensive and included overseeing event budgets, advertising and marketing, personnel assignment, and post event evaluations. “It’s really easy for people to see the product of our hard work in Parks and Recreation and not completely understand what all goes into achieving that goal. I wanted Eunice to get the full experience during her internship and not just go through the motions,” said Smallwood. Joy James, Director for the Appalachian State Recreation Management Program lauded the effectiveness of McSwain’s Internship in Cramerton: “These ideas as it relates to pool programming is something I have never seen before. As recreation departments across the country, both large and small look for ways to incentivize young employees, things like this are innovative. Introducing more fun into the work environment is a great way to attract employees. This internship and the programs that came from it could warrant state and national publication as a blueprint for recreation departments summer programming.” McSwain’s internship had benefits beyond the two goals set out for her. The unforeseen benefits that came from the events and swim lessons were the real eye-opener at the conclusion of her internship. Pool patrons and staff started volunteering every Wednesday to help decorate, prepare and participate in the events; applications and interest to work for the Cramerton Recreation pool increased and; season pool passes purchased more than doubled from 2017. “I couldn’t have asked for a better internship experience,”

Eunice McSwain said McSwain, the self-proclaimed Cramerton Pool Craft Queen. “Being able to build these aquatic programs from scratch allowed me to stretch my creativity in ways I never thought possible. The best part was having a staff that was always willing to back up my ideas 110%.” Eunice McSwain has worked at the Cramerton Recreation pool since she was 16 years old and has worked her way from a lifeguard to a pool manager and her title for her 2018 Internship was Aquatic Programmer. Her task was simple; however, execution was anything but – increase the pool attendance and make a day at the pool something people looked forward too. “I love helping people get their foot in the door when it comes to Parks and Recreation” said Eric Smallwood, Cramerton Parks and Recreation Director. “When I had the chance to help Eunice do just that, it was a no brainer for me.” McSwain will graduate from Appalachian State University in December of 2018 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Recreation Management and minor in Media Studies. She will be certified in pool operations, water safety instruction and open water/kayak/SUP and canoe safety. When asked about what she enjoyed the most about the summer, McSwain stated “the connections were amazing. Having a small staff and a tight knit community it was great getting to see everyone enjoy the events and see familiar faces each week.”

Belmont Abbey announces women’s basketball schedule The Belmont Abbey women’s basketball team will kickoff its 2018-19 season with Division I opponents Elon and UNC Wilmington, and will play 15 games at home Head Coach Jason Williams announced today. The exhibition at Elon will take place on Saturday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. while the UNC Wilmington game will close out the exhibition schedule on Tuesday, November 6 at 7:30 p.m. The regular season will open with the Conference Carolinas/SAC Challenge, as The Abbey hosts Tusculum on November 9, then Coker on November 10. The Crusaders will play their first Conference Carolinas opponent on Saturday, December 1 at 2 p.m. as they will host Southern Wesleyan. “We have an extremely young group this year, which provides an amazing opportunity to learn and grow daily about the intricacies of college basketball.” Coach Williams said. “This group brings tremendous energy and passion which makes it so much fun to be apart of. Our focus throughout the season is to enhance our discipline and consistency and with that the sky is the limit with this group.” The Conference Carolinas will begin March 4 and run through March 9. Men’s Schedule Thirteen home games, a renewal of the crosstown rivalry with Queens and exhibition games against Division I foes Campbell and Wake Forest highlight the 2018-19 Belmont Abbey men’s basketball schedule, Head Coach Billy Taylor announced today. The Crusaders also participate in the SAC-Conference Carolinas Tip-off Challenge to start the

campaign. The exhibition schedule opens on October 27 as The Abbey faces the Camels of the Big South Conference in Buies Creek, then concludes six days later with a Friday, Nov. 2 trip to battle the ACC’s Demon Deacons. Regular-season play begins a week later at Wingate and against Mars Hill on Nov. 9-10. After a third road contest at Coker, the Crusaders welcome Piedmont International (Nov. 17) and Johnson C. Smith (Nov. 20) to the Wheeler Center for a short homestand. Belmont Abbey and Queens face each other for the first time since Nov. 28, 2015 when they meet in Charlotte at the Levine Center. “Our goal is to become one of the toughest teams in this conference in order to compete on a regional and national level,” Taylor said. “Our non-conference schedule will allow us an early opportunity to see where we stand and help us figure out what we need to improve upon. We think the challenges of playing tough games early on will absolutely prepare us for what appears to be a strong conference this year.” The Conference Carolinas schedule begins at home against Southern Wesleyan and concludes with a trip to Emmanuel on Feb. 26. The league tournament will be played March 5 and 9-10 at campus sites.
