GEMS shows off new Quick Response Vehicle By Alan Hodge

It's big, it's green-eye popping green- and it's now ready for duty at the new Mt. Holly Fire Dept. Lucia-Riverbend station. What is it? A brand new Gaston Emergency Medical Services (GEMS) Quick Response Vehicle (QRV) that will bring faster and more efficient service to area citizens in case of a medical emergency. The new vehicle replaces a much smaller one that's nine years old. The base vehicle itself cost $184,538 and has about $150,000 worth of state of the art emergency medical equipment inside. Features include room for two adult and one child patients. It has a powerload stretcher, equipment to monitor patient condition, life packs, and special safety seats and belts that will allow GEMS staff to tend to patients and at the same time be safely seated. Then there's the color. The QRV is painted a dayglo shade of green that makes sure no one can miss it when it's going down the road. Gaston County commission chair Chad Brown dubbed the hue “Lucia Lime”. Even though the QRV is based at Lucia-Riverbend, it will also serve a wider area that can include Mt. Holly, Belmont, and Stanley. The QRV will be busy. “We average about 400 calls a year just in the Lucia area,” said Gaston County EMS Director Mark Lamphiear. “Growth in this area means the number of calls will go up every year.” Lamphiear said he hoped to have QRVs in all four corners of the county.

Statue dedication coming up in Cramerton

This coming Saturday, November 10, will be one on the most significant in the history of the Town of Cramerton. That day will see the long awaited Veterans Memorial statue unveiled in the town center at 10am. The memorial has been a long work in progress. The statue was sculpted by Matt Glenn of Big Statues in Provo, Utah. According to Glenn, it took six months to create the work of art. Glenn has been creating bronze monuments for over 15 years. He has done monuments both large and small for communities all over the country as well as municipalities and private organizations. Landscape architect Gary Fankhauser of Viz Designs in Charlotte also helped to design the project. The statue arrived in Cramerton and was installed on the knoll in the plaza area across from City Hall just days before the ceremony. The bronze statue depicts a World War II soldier dressed in Cramerton Army Cloth and his daughter, representing family sacrifice and sense of pride. Both figures are saluting the American flag that flies nearby. See STATUE page 4

Beth Kendrick of Belmont proves that dancing has a lot more to do with life than just moving your feet and legs. Kendrick recently celebrated her fourth decade of teaching dancing to youths, and nearly all of those years have been at the Belmont Parks and Rec. Dept. “Beth is a unique person and really knows how to interact with kids,” said Parks and Rec. director Zip Stowe. “She's been working a long time with students ranging in age from childhood all the way up to college.” A native of Danville, Virginia, Kendrick, whose students have been known to call her “Betherina”, has been teaching dancing at Belmont Parks and Rec. for 38 years, but her love of dancing goes all the way back to her own childhood. Her first lessons began when she was just six years old in Danville. She continued taking ballet, tap, and jazz lessons there at the Anne Boyer School of Dance for 16 years. Kendrick expanded her horizons by studying art history in Italy and Spain. She attended Stafford College for three years. In 1975, she graduated from Averett College with a degree in humanities.

Beth Kendrick has plenty to be proud of by teaching her students dancing and life lessons for four decades. Belmont Parks and Rec. photo

GEMS from page 1

“We want to get help where it's needed at the least possible cost,” he said. Since it opened in May, there have been about 200 Mt. Holly Fire Dept. calls for service out of Lucia-Riverbend. Last week saw a group of GEMS employees, Mt. Holly Fire Dept. staff, and local, county, and state officials gather at Lucia-Riverbend to get a first hand look at the QRV.

“I want to personally thank the GEMS staff from the bottom of my heart for being on the front line every day,” said NC Rep. John Torbett. Mt. Holly fire chief Ryan Baker remarked on having a GEMS unit dispatch out of Lucia-Riverbend. “GEMS and the fire department make a great team,” said Baker. GEMS was established in 1982 as a basic level am-

bulance provider. Today, it operates all Advanced Life Support units, and deploys a Rescue Support Unit and various special teams. GEMS was the first EMS service in North Carolina to achieve accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services in 1995. GEMS was the 2002 recipient of the Emergency Medical Services magazine Gold Standard EMS Service of the Year Award.

Remembering Our Veterans The men andd women who h ddefend f d the h lib liberties i and freedoms of the countries they represent hold a special place in people’s hearts and an eternal spot in their countries’ histories. Any opportunity is a good time to commemorate the bravery and selfless deeds of military personnel, but certain prominent holidays in November make this an especially important time to thank veterans for their service. November 11 is Veterans Day in the United States and Remembrance Day in Canada. It’s also known as Armistice Day in other parts of the world. These holidays honor all military veterans who have provided service to their countries, and that each falls on November 11 is no coincidence, as the day commemorates the anniversary of the end of World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Many places around the world pause and remember fallen veterans on November 11, but a good majority of Veterans Day and Remembrance Day commemorative events focus on past and current veterans who are still alive. There are many ways to honor the military at home and abroad in time for the November festivities. The following are just a handful of ways to show appreciation for military men and women. • When dining out, ask your server if you can pay the tab for a soldier or veteran you see in the restaurant. • Attend a military parade with your family and explain the significance of the day to children in attendance. • Draft letters and send care packages to soldiers currently in service far away from home. • Ask your company if Veterans Day or Remembrance Day can be an observed holiday at your place of business each year to pay homage to servicemen and women. • Visit a military memorial in a city near you. Your town also may have its own memorial. • Petition town officials to erect a memorial if your town does not already have one. Such memorials can be a source of inspiration for your community. • Support a military family in your town who may be missing a loved one stationed elsewhere. Make meals, mow the lawn, help with grocery shopping, or simply provide emotional support. • Volunteer time at a veterans’ hospital. You may be able to read with veterans or engage in other activities. • Get involved with a military support charity that can provide much-needed funds to struggling families or disabled veterans. • Have children speak with veterans in your family, including grandparents, uncles and aunts or even their own parents. It can help them gain perspective on the important roles the military plays. • Ask a veteran to give a commencement speech at a school or to be the guest of honor at a special function. • Drive disabled veterans to doctors’ appointments or to run any errands. • Support a local VFW organization. • Create a scrapbook for a veteran in your life. • Cheer for or thank military personnel each time you see them. • Visit the veterans’ portion of a nearby cemetery and place poppies or other flowers on the graves. • Always keep the military on your mind and never forget those who have served and didn’t return home. Armistice Day, Remembrance Day and Veterans Day are great ways to honor past and current military for their service and sacrifice.

Gaston County Police Partner with Habitat for Humanity Gaston County Police Department employees are stepping forward to help one of their own by playing a big part in building a Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County house. Approximately eighty people from the Gaston County

Police Department are providing assistance with building a brand new residence for Mary Holmes who is tasked with keeping police headquarters neat, orderly, and clean all by herself on a daily basis. She is an asset to the department and is truly part of the police fam-

ily. Personnel were quick to sign up to work one of nine volunteer build dates from midSeptember to late November, 2018. The first scheduled date of September 15th was blocked by Hurricane Florence, but the next Saturday got off to an early

start and saw four walls built and put in place by the end of the day. Mary Holmes will be participating in the work days as part of her commitment to the Habitat for Humanity contract. She also logged over 200 volunteer hours in the Habitat Re-Store

on Franklin Blvd, Gastonia, NC. Chief Joseph Ramey is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County in this worthy effort and will be there swinging a hammer beside his co-workers. If corporations or individu-

als would like to contribute toward Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County, please contact Mary Harris, Director, at (704) 874-0499 or For further information, contact Captain C.J. Rosselle at (704) 866-3397.

Belmont debuts new water bill website The City of Belmont has launched the WaterSmart customer portal to provide self-service solutions and key messaging to its water utility customers. The portal is integrated with the newly installed Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system, giving customers access to their hourly consumption data. Through a secure log-in, customers are able to access their account to better manage water usage, view balances, pay their bill, and contact customer service. The secure payment processing platform embedded within the portal is Paymentus. The following are some of the key benefits of the portal: View hourly, weekly, monthly, and seasonal consumption in easyto-read charts; Receive a leak alert when water consumption is 1x-5x higher than normal along with recommendations on steps to take to identify and resolve a leak; Ability to customize threshold levels to conserve water use and receive an alert when consumption goes beyond the setting; Receive notifications through your preferred communication channel (e-mail, text, or voicemail); Pay your

Red Cross calls for winter heroes to host blood drives Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. To help meet the constant demand for lifesaving blood donations and prevent blood shortages this winter, the American Red Cross is urging individuals and organizations to be winter heroes by hosting a blood drive. Right now, the Red Cross needs about 6,500 additional groups across the country to host blood drives in December, January and February to ensure blood will be there for patients who rely on blood products. In this the Carolinas Blood Services Region, about 350 more blood drive hosts are needed. During the winter, there is often a decrease in the number of blood drives, which can contribute to blood shortages. “When someone hosts a blood drive, they give donors a chance to donate lifesaving blood, in

turn helping to save dozens or even hundreds of lives,” said Cliff Numark, senior vice president, Biomedical Services. “Blood shortages are not uncommon during the winter months, and these shortages could cause delays in patient care. But with the help of volunteer blood drive partners, the Red Cross can be better prepared to meet patient needs all winter long.” To learn more about hosting a blood drive and to sign up, visit HostADrive. Blood drive partners who host a drive between Dec. 20 and Jan. 6 will receive long-sleeved Red Cross T-shirts for all who come to give, and if the partner achieves its donation goal, it will be recognized in a national newspaper highlighting its lifesaving work.

Bambachs win Elements of Empowerment anniversary chair The Elements of Empowerment, Inc. 2nd Anniversary raffle drawing resulted in an anniversary gift for a special couple. Bill and Kathy Bambach received the news of winning a custom-painted, culturally-inspired rocking chair just one day before their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Bill, who graduated from Belmont Abbey College, and Kathy, from Sacred Heart College, were married at Abbey Basilica of Mary help of Christians in 1968. During the chair delivery, Delta Sanders got a tour of the Bambach’s music room. Bill, a former music director for WSGE 91.7 FM, had a vast music collection of 2,500 albums and 750 CDs. He started collecting at age 11. Before that, a neighbor gave him his first 78 when he was 4. He still owns that recording of “At The Jazz Band Ball” by Wild Bill Davison, as well as the CD version of it. While concert, folk, international, and traditional pop are included, he estimates that 60% of the collection is jazz. His favorite singer is Frank Sinatra. Yes, he has donned a Sinatra costume in Halloweens past. His favorite composer is Duke Ellington, whom he saw at the 1958 Stoneybrook Music Festival. His favorite Ellington composition is the original 1940 version of “Ko-Ko.” “I learned everything I know about jazz from Bill, who introduced me to it” admits Kathy. The couple had plans to see Duke in June of 1969. Instead, they saw the arrival of their first child. Sitting above the albums, among vintage jazz posters, is a

large framed photo of Bill. The 1963 picture was taken by a photographer for Chaninade High School in Long Island, New York. Appropriately, Bambach was captured while giving a presentation on marriage and family. If 50 years of marriage is any indication, he knew what he was talking about. The Bambachs are season ticket holders for the Community Jazz Series. They purchased their raffle ticket at the September concert, held at the Haid Theater on the campus of Belmont Abbey College. “We have followed jazz for a long time, and jazz has rewarded us” said Bill. He went on to say of the concert series “I am happy to see this artistic enterprise brought to my old academic home.” Elements of Empowerment, Inc. presents the Community Jazz Series in partnership with Belmont Abbey College. The next concert is November 11, 2018. The David Pankey Trio will perform on the set of the Abbey Players’ production of It’s A Wonderful Life: A Radio Play by Joe Landry. Veterans will be recognized at the event. Tickets are available at Caravan Coffee & Dessert Bar, on the Elements of Empowerment Facebook page, at Givelify. com, and at the door. Individual tickets are $10.00 each and tickets for children under 12 are $5.00 and sold only at the door. For additional event information, email or call (704) 755-5210.

LETTER TO EDITOR Life is a journey not meant to be taken alone. Psalm 130:5 - I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. (NIV) We were created by God to be in relationship with Him, and each other. Yet many of us end up doing life alone. We have hopes, dreams, and desires about life. We have a longing for things to be different. We get up each morning deciding to make the changes, intending to do things differently, set on going a different direction. And each evening we lay our head on our pillow wondering why things are still the same and reluctantly doing life “just the way it is”. We just can’t seem to complete the process Albert Einstein wrote, “The tragedy of life is what dies in the hearts and souls of people while they live.” Everybody has a story to tell. There are metaphors everywhere, just as there are lessons everywhere. How did you get where you are? Are you living your life through the eyes of your passion or are you trying to get to it? What has the journey been like? Do you remember when? The memories and experiences that have shaped your life...Do you realize the great gift you can yourself and your loved ones? Reflecting back on life can truly open up so many emotions. I believe for anyone who has walked down the many paths in their life, and then questioned along the way why they were at crossroads that seem to be going nowhere. Where we end up is inevitably up to us. The Apostle Paul wrote, “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Transform your life into the life you were meant to live, by changing mind-sets, creating paradigm shifts, and discovering new perspectives. It is truly a daily process. Transformation, change, success, and life progress can only happen by persistent daily attention and application, but most of all keeping our faith and complete trust in God. He is watching over us and loving us as if we were that 1 sheep lost out of a herd of a thousand. If we walk with Him through these dark times, He will not lead us astray. “There is a purpose in life, and there are people who care” Lisa Harper • Belmont NC

You have probably faced a time of struggle, illness, or even the loss of a loved one at some point in your life. During such times someone has more than likely said to you, “I know what you’re going through.” Not only have we heard this said to us, but we have probably said it to others too. We say this to empathize with others, to show our compassion and love to those who are hurting. Truth is, we really cannot understand what people are going through. However, we know the One who does know, Jesus Christ. Mark 5:22-43 tells of two people who were facing life’s struggles. One, a ruler of the local synagogue, Jairus, had a young daughter at the point of death. He sought Jesus to heal her. The other, a local woman, had a disease she had battled for twelve years. As Jesus walked with Jairus to his house, a crowd gathered around Him. The woman knew she could not get to Jesus, but believed if she could simply touch His clothes, she would be healed. She touched His robe and was healed. Jesus recognized her great faith. Meanwhile, people came from Jairus’ house to tell him his daughter was dead. However, Jesus went home with him and raised the young girl from the dead. As we see with these two people, everyone hurts. Whether it is a wealthy person like Jairus, or an average person with little money

Rev. Trent Rankin Salvation Church

Gastonia, NC like the woman, everyone struggles. Pain and sorrow are no respecter of persons, as everyone has troubles in their lives. Too often people are going through things everyday which we have no idea about. It may be a family member, or someone we sit in church beside. Just as the woman with the disease went twelve years struggling alone, people today have needs we may never know, or understand. We may not know, yet Jesus does! Before they arrived that day, Jesus already knew what the woman needed, and what Jairus needed. Jesus knows and understands. Jesus experienced His own struggles and suffering as He was hated, betrayed, and put to death, all for us. One thing we must never forget, is how much we are loved. No matter what we face our families love us, our friends, but most of all, Jesus. Jesus loved the woman with the disease, and He loved Jairus too. As we go though this life and see so many struggling, instead of telling them we understand, even if we do not, let us simply offer them love, the love of Jesus. Today as we begin to tell someone that we know what they are going through, may we tell them instead, “I don’t know what you’re going through, but I know the One who does, Jesus!”

Cramer Memorial UMC Love Feast Cramer Memorial UMC in Cramerton, NC will be hosting a Community-wide Moravian Love Feast on Sunday, December 9, 2018 at 5:30 pm. Several Belmont area churches are involved as well. What is a Moravian Love Feast? The early Christians met and broke bread to-

gether to signify their union, fellowship and love. In 1727, the Moravian church revived this practice, and it established the custom of celebrating the great festivals, such as Christmas, by partaking of a simple meal known as a Love Feast. The first Love Feast was held on November 17,

1753, at Bethabara (in Forsyth County). The Christmas Love Feast, with its lighted candles, is one of the most beautiful services of the Moravian church. The custom originated in Europe and spread throughout the Moravian world. In NC, the candles were first used in 1762.

Queen of Apostles Thanksgiving meal The members of Queen of the Apostles Church, 503 N. Main St, Belmont, will continue their custom of offering a Thanksgiving Meal, complete with all the trimmings, on Thanksgiving Day from 11:00 am to 12:45 pm. We serve folks in need at our Family Life Center and we will also deliver meals to residents of eastern Gaston County who are unable to travel to our church campus. Please call the church office if you plan on attending or if you need a meal, or meals, delivered to your residence. The phone number is (704) 825-9600. Please call by Friday, November 16, 2017, so we know how many meals to prepare. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Shelby beats South Point 41-25 for Southwestern 2A title By John Wilson

The Shelby-South Point football game was billed as the local game of the week. The winner would be the Southwestern 2A Conference champion and would secure a solid seed when the playoffs start next week. Those that saw the game saw two different offensive styles at work. When it was over the Golden Lions proved to be a little too much for the Red Raiders to handle. Shelby took away a 41-25 win. Things started off good for South Point when the Red Raiders took an early 12-0 lead. However, by the end of the second quarter Shelby was starting to take control. Each team generated solid offensive numbers. Both teams moved the ball well. Shelby had 404 yards of total offense. South Point had 335. What separated the two teams was how they got their yardage. Shelby attacked through the air throwing for 313 yards of passing offense and four touchdowns. South Point stuck to the ground running for 285 yards of rushing offense. The Red Raiders also had four touchdowns. The final score didn’t reflect how tight this game was. No one got blown out. Both teams played well. As is the case in football, the team that won was the one that got the little things done. The Golden Lions were able to get some things done that South Point failed to do. Shelby was able to build on small accomplishments and turn them into some-

thing bigger. For example, the Golden Lions threw the ball with ease, but they didn’t have a strong ground game. However, Shelby was able to generate just enough Nolan Cochran and Alec Moore team up on the tackle. of a rushing game that they scored a touchdown. South Point, on the other hand had a running game that was on fire, but the passing offense was very limited and never made it into the end zone. One small comparison that put points on the board for Shelby and left South Point empty handed. Another area that proved to be critical was turnovers and special teams play. Shelby played relatively mistake free. However, South Josh Hicks will not give an inch. Point turned the ball over twice. Shelby took advantage of that. The Shelby special teamers also brought back a big 95 yard kickoff return for a score in the fourth quarter. South Point head coach Adam Hodge knows what went wrong and knows what the Red Raiders need to do to improve. “We played hard but we made too many mistakes to win,” Hodge noted. “We’ve got to get better.” Now the Red Raiders will regroup and get ready for the Keaton Hale leads his offense. playoffs. The one good thing about the playoffs is everything is reset. The teams that made it in start over in a sense. “It’s a new season and it’s win or go home,” Hodge said. “I look forward to the playoffs.” The seeding for next week’s games should come out Saturday afternoon.

OUTDOOR TRUTHS By Gary Miller ller

Aiming Outdoorsmen Toward Christ As a grandparent (I prefer poppy) I am excited about the times I can take my own grandchildren on some of their first huntGARY MILLER ing experiences. However, I also enjoy the occasional opportunities to take other children, youth, and young adults into this wonderful world. I can honestly say I get as excited and nervous as they do just before they pull the trigger. I do, however, temper my celebration until we see the evidence of a well-placed shot lying on the ground. I then go nuts. I think what intrigues me about sitting in the blind with different hunters is how each come with different personalities, expectations, and desires. The younger ones are so much fun. My fear is they may face a future without the ability to hunt, whether it is because of those who are anti-hunting or because of the friendly fire that is coming from the ever-increasing license fees. I digress, but I needed to say that as I did last week. When taking these younger ones hunting, I prefer to take them to the barn loft where they don’t have to be too still and where the weather is not a factor. The bales of hay also make for a perfect gun rest. This was the case with nine-year-old Riley and me. We had situated ourselves overlooking the field, just behind the bales of hay and just in front of a small heater. We were watching two doe when another one seemingly appeared just to the right of our opening. It couldn’t get much better than this even though dark was setting in fast. I moved Riley around slowly in order to get him situated for the shot. That’s when I began to realize who was really in control. His first revelation to me was that he was not sure if he wanted to shoot this one. She seemed small and there might be a buck behind her. I understood his reasoning even though I was taken aback by his hunting wisdom. After a few seconds (that seemed like forever) he decides that he would shoot. Once again, I situated him for the shot, pushed the safety off and proceeded to prepare for whatever might happen next. But I wasn’t prepared for the next instructions he gave to his guide. “Are you going to film this?” He said. Now my heart is beating pretty fast and the doe is looking at us. I’m also trying to watch the outcome, make sure Riley doesn’t get too close to the scope, and again, it is getting dark fast. “No, Riley I’m not going to be filming you. Just shoot the deer!” He hugs up to the gun, I lean over him to watch, and then just before he shoots he says, “Will you put your hands over my ears?” I do. He shoots and immediately yells “I got him! Now that, my friends, is how every hunt ought to be; where the memories do not come from what is in front of the gun but from what is behind it. ~

Mt. Holly Lamp Parade has an international angle by Alan Hodge

The bible urges folks not to hide their lamp under a basket, and that adage is certainly going to come true on Oct. 20 at 7pm when the Mt. Holly Lamp Parade steps off at Ida Rankin Elementary School, continues down West Central Avenue, turns right on South Main Street, and ends at the newly christened permanent trellis system for the Mount Holly Farmer’s Market. During the parade, folks will see over 20 dazzling and illuminated lamps marched through town. 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 The lamps will include such fanciful creations as the legendary flying horse Pegasus, a huge fish, a giant snake with working jaws, large and colorful butterflies, and more. The lamps were created

by local students from schools like Ida Rankin Elementary, local artists like Diane Pike, and Awaken Gallery owner Emily Andress. They are made of wire and willow sticks with translucent paper stretched over the framework. Pitching in to lend her expertise to the lamp parade project has been Irish artist Olive Stack who is a resident of and art gallery owner in Listowel, County Kerry, Ireland. Stack’s jaunt to Mt. Holly to work with the lantern parade was sponsored by the Mt. Holly Community Development Foundation. “I love Mt. Holly,” Stack said. “The people are so warm and friendly. It’s a lot like home.” During her stay, Stack has been working with other artists and Ida Rankin students as they craft their lanterns. She’s also making one that will represent the 1916 Mt. Island Mill bell that’s at the Mt. Holly Historical Society. Stack and Andress met several years ago and are close friends. “I got the idea for the lamp parade after seeing one in Paris,” said Andress. See LAMP page 2

On Saturday, three elected officials and one city employee were arrested on nefarious charges, placed in manacles, and hauled by paddywagon to the ‘Jail House' at Patriots Park during Mountaineer Days. The three elected officials arrested were Mayor Scott Neisler and Council members David Allen and Rodney Gordon. Each had to raise $200 bond within two hours. Due to rowdy behavior, Rodney Gordon had to raise additional bond money. Mayor Neisler implicated Karen Tucker who was subsequently arrested for "Impersonating the City Clerk." Tucker had to raise a $25.00 bond. All funds raised benefit the Kings Mountain Historical Museum's history education boxes that highlight local history in Kings Mountain schools. Sarah Lunch, Museum Director, and Curator commented,

Fans of chickens, on the hoof, not fried or baked, in Belmont, have plenty to crow about. At its last meeting, the Belmont city council approved an ordinance that will allow those so inclined to keep a small flock of chickens on their property- with provisions. The approved ordinance will allow the keeping of up to four chickens in the rear yard area if all requirements can be met. Requirements include setbacks from side and rear property lines, chicken housing requirements, cleanliness, and permitting. The city got involved in the chicken business by meeting with local residents who gave feedback on a draft of the ordinance. Lara Worden, area agent from the NC Cooperative Extension Service, also offered suggestions.

The three other classes attended the Homecoming football game and watched as the Mountaineers trounced Ashbrook. Sitting together at the 40-yard line, these alumni showed their Mountaineer pride wearing black and gold. The Class of 1973 held their reunion at the Kings Mountain Country Club, and 80 attended. At noon on Saturday, the class had a picnic at Lake Crawford, followed by the reunion later

Keystone Powdered Metals’ employees see PINK in Breast Cancer fight by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Children’s activities include pumpkin painting. (Photo provided)

Community Revival

Both Terry L. Stutter, Keystone Powdered Metal Company’s Plant Manager, and Pam Crotts, Keystone Powdered Metal Company’s Human Resource Manager, take great pride in the fact their co-workers and staffs are seeing pink nowadays. They’re not alone. Their co-workers do too as was evidenced by what they did to honor those who fight the fight. So, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month they and a number of their day and night shift employees donned pink tee-shirts to let all know

they’re a team when it comes to the fight to battle and hopefully find a cure for the disease. For plant manager Shutter it’s personal as his wife Donna is a breast cancer survivor. “My wife and I have been supporters of the Susan G. Komen Foundation for years,” said Shutter in a recent interview at the Keystone plant. “This is just another opportunity to come together and do this in out plant.” Crotts agreed, adding, “And we love the camaraderie due to the shirts.” Crotts, a Dallas native, has two kids and four grandchildren, said she was awed by

The day, or first, shift crew at Keystone Powdered Metals in their pink shirts they wore last week as part of their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
