City of Belmont installs second informational kiosk on N. Main St. By Alan Hodge

The City of Belmont has installed a second informational kiosk right in front of the BannerNews office at 128 N. Main St. The first kiosk was installed on S. Main Street a couple of months ago in front of Stowe Park. The bright red and black kiosk colors and overall design is intended to invoke images of a railroad caboose and was chosen by the Main Street Design committee as reflective of the city’s railroading history. The design is also intended to add to the city’s desire to increase examples of public art. The kiosks will look and function the same in identifying and promoting businesses and events. The city’s Main Street Program is also pondering placing kiosks in East

Ground broken for Linford Park improvements By Alan Hodge

A group of Belmont officials and other interested folks took part in breaking ground at Linford Park on Cason St. in North Belmont last Saturday. The event was a big step towards improving the threeacre site with about $30,000 worth of new playground equipment. The money came from a Meet Me at the Park grant from the Walt Disney Co. and the National Parks and Recreation Association. The city must match the grant funds.

Canadian artist Kathleen Doody (center) was in Mt. Holly last weekend coaching folks who were making lanterns for the Oct. 26 parade. Makenley Turner (left) and Grace Turner were picking up some tips. CBC. She was a founding member of Shadowland Theatre Company and worked with the group for ten years creat-

People and businesses are attracted to communities that are branding themselves and thinking outside the box when marketing and promoting their downtown.” A practical example of this is the fact that Sam Wilcox, the owner Doc’s Basement Comics Toys Games, in the River District said he has had customers come into his store because they saw his business listed on the kiosk outside of Stowe Park - they didn’t even know his store was open in

Hoyle House annual open house is September 14th The annual Open House event at the Hoyle Historic Homestead is planned for September 14, 2019 from 9:30am to 3:30pm. The Hoyle Historic Homestead is Gaston County’s oldest home. It dates back to circa late 1700’s and is located at 1214 Dallas-Stanley Highway about halfway between the two towns. A non-profit educational organization, The Hoyle Historic Homestead, Inc. seeks to restore and protect this home of Peter Hoyle, sometimes spelled Heil, Heyl or Hoyl in old documents.

Hoyle was part of the 18th Century settling of the North Carolina Piedmont by German and Scot-Irish immigrants traveling the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road south through the Shenandoah Valley then into the Carolinas. The home is important not only for its antiquity, but also for its construction. The house and outbuildings are on the site where Peiter Heyl was granted a land grant in 1754. The main house was built during the late 1700’s. It features rare corner post construction and is the only known remaining structure in North Carolina with this type

of construction. This was also the site of Hoylesville, the first Federal Post Office in present day Gaston County. The site was purchased by Hoyle Historic Homestead Inc., in 1991 to preserve and restore this very important part of regional history. In 1993 it was placed on the National Historical Register. Pieter Heyl, a miller from Adenbach, Germany, his wife, Catharine, and their children arrived in America on September 11, 1738 on the Robert and Alice, originally settling in northeast Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The Heyl family,

later Anglicized to Hoyle, then lived for some time in Frederick, Maryland, but by 1753 had moved to what is now Gaston County, North Carolina, then part of Anson County. Peter Hoyle died prior to January 20, 1761. The exact date of construction of the house is not known, but various sources date it anywhere from 1750 to 1758. After Peter’s and his eldest son Jacob’s deaths, which occurred within a year of each other, the land was inherited by Jacob’s minor son Martin, who The Hoyle Historic Homestead. then transferred his interest to his uncle John. In 1794 the property went to Peter Hoyle’s other grandson, Andrew, who became a farmer and entrepreneur. “Rich Andrew”, as he was known, may have acquired the property with the house already standing and then improved the dwelling, or he may have built the house and later upgraded it with new finishes in the early years of the 19th century. The Hoyle House stands on a hill overlooking the South Historic Main Street Fork of the Catawba River. The house faces south toward a now Forest City NC overgrown dirt road; the DallasStanley Highway on the north side now provides access to the property. The earliest section has a foundation of small stones, still partly visible. The house’s AUGUST 17TH 9AM–10:30PM German-American hallmarks include its heavy timber frame Registration from 9am-2pm (Cost $25) construction with vertical braces at the corners with tightly ALL-DAY ENTERTAINMENT ALONG fitted horizontal log infillings.

Weathering beneath the beaded siding reveals the exterior was originally unsheathed. Some of the early windows remain, set in molded surrounds with molded sills that appear to date to 1810. The windows originally were small (about two-and-a-half feet square) and possibly filled only with shutters in the earliest period. The first floor of the main block is a four-room plan of two larger rooms on the east side, with corner fireplaces sharing a single chimney, and two smaller west rooms. Each pair of rooms is of equal width, but the front rooms are slightly deeper. A later, second northsouth partition, no longer in place, once created a center-hall plan. Today all rooms connect with adjacent rooms. The original staircase, in the southeast corner of the larger front room, enclosed with one set of winders and at least one stop outside the enclosure, was removed in the late 1960s. The first floor interior is carefully finished. Much of the

Photo furnished modern sheetrock and painting have been removed to reveal early board ceilings and walnut paneled partitions and paneling on the outer walls. While some or all of the interior sheathing appears to date after 1810, all of the trim and some of the ceiling probably date to the first remodeling. The three room plan of the second floor consists of a large east room that comprises about two thirds of the space along with two small west rooms. The north-south paneled partition is similar to the partition of the first floor. This basic three room plan probably is original, although the partition has been moved at least twice. Notches on the baseboard and patching of the wall plasters and chair rail indicate the wall was moved east, into the larger space, by about three feet. All outer walls were exposed logs until they were plastered, probably early in the 19th century. A door in the northeast corner of the large east room leads to an enclosed attic staircase; in the stairwell the structural system is clearly evident because the corner post, down braces and log filling have never been sheathed. The two remaining outbuildings date from the early- to mid19th century. Near the northeast corner of the main house, the well house is a one-story, rectangular common bond brick building with ventilation holes on the ends. A gabled tin roof extends beyond the west end and acts as a porch sheltering the well. The well house stands at the southeast corner, and east of the well house stands a weatherboarded smokehouse with a gabled roof sheathed in sheet metal. The Hoyle House is an important and, in some respects, apparently unique landmark of traditional German-American architecture in North Carolina. The unusually large, for its time, and substantial dwelling exemplifies a construction method— heavy timber frame with log infill— seen elsewhere in the mid-Atlantic Germanic settlement areas but not previously identified in North Carolina.

‘The equipment will have ramps so that wheelchairs can use it,” said Stowe. “It will be the first of its type in Belmont.” In other Belmont Parks and Rec. news, at its regular monthly meeting held August 5, the Belmont city council tabled until a later date a resolution approving an update to the 2002-1013 parks and rec. master plan. The city had hired the Woolpert consulting company to conduct the update. Woolpert worked with city staff, the parks and recreation citizens’ advisory board, and various stakeholders on this update. They presented the final report to the parks and recreation citizens’ advisory board on July 24. There were no major changes made to this report. Stowe explained the situation regarding the plan and the Wolpert report. “The reason it was tabled is because there was a lot of information to digest,” he said. “There are still some details to be ironed out.” Stowe said the report will be useful in guiding his department now and in the future. “We will keep improving and updating our parks, trails,

My lantern is huge this year.” According to Andress, last year eleven teachers and about fifteen artists came to the workshops which saw around 200 lanterns created. This year, there are twice as many teachers and over 120 people who have taken the workshops. “I have been teaching smaller groups in my studio and we have artists coming in to participate from Connecticut, Atlanta, Charleston, Asheville, Hickory, Pennsylvania, and other places,” Andress said. “Olive is coming in this year to judge.”

It’s what makes me love Mount Holly so much that local business owners care enough to put their money where their mouth is to promote arts in education.” Last Sunday saw round two of the lantern learning experience take place. “We had another packed house of artists, groups, and the general public for Sunday’s workshop,” Andress said. “I was there along with Awaken Gallery artist Diane Pike to help Kathleen.

James William (Bill) Boiter A loving husband and father of two, grandfather of 5 and great-grandfather of 3, James William (Bill) Boiter passed away on August 11, 2019 at the age of 86. Bill was born on July 15, 1933 in Laurens County, South Carolina to Winston Talmedge and Janie Lou (Ridgeway) Boiter. A proud 1956 graduate of Clemson (A&T College) University as an Industrial Engineer, Bill spent his career as an engineer, executive and then teacher in various positions of the textile industry, including president of United Spinners, Inc., in Lowell, NC. On June 12, 1954, he married his

childhood sweetheart, Joyce Elaine McLemore, and they spent the next 53 years together, before her passing in 2007. Bill had a passion for life, his family and for teaching. After leaving a successful career as a management consultant and textile executive, Bill spent 10 years teaching textile management at Gaston College in Belmont, and around the state. He also taught bible school for many years at First Baptist Church of Cramerton, and then taught weekly bible studies at Mayworth Apartments and also Carillon Assisted Living before becoming a resident there. His last residence was Terrace Ridge in Gastonia. He was a member of the Belmont Lion’s Club, and served as Deacon and officer at First Baptist Church for many years. He was known for his quick wit, his loving and infectious personality, and his kind and compassionate spirit to everyone, as well as for a good story or two about almost anything - especially Clemson Football, his time as a student there, and life growing up in a small town in the south. Bill was preceded in death by his father, his mother, and

his loving wife, Joyce. He is survived by his two children, Jacqueline B. Sloan (Jacque) and James William Boiter, Jr. (Jamey), his daughter-inlaw, Katherine M. Boiter, his five grandchildren: Elaine L. Sloan (Laney) and husband, David G. Pruett, III; John W. Sloan (Bill) and wife, Jocelyn K. Sloan; Carol B. Andrews and husband, Wilson M. Andrews, Daniel J. Boiter, Nathaniel J. Boiter (Nathan), 3 great-grandchildren: Madeline N. Sloan (Maddie), Emma O. Sloan, and Lindsay E. Pruett, numerous nieces and nephews, and many, many friends in the community. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Carillon Assisted Living of Cramerton and of Terrace Ridge Assisted Living of Gastonia for their loving care of “Mr. Clemson”. A visitation was held at McLean’s Funeral Home in Belmont, NC on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. The funeral service was held on Wednesday, August 14, 2019 at 11:00 am at the First Baptist Church of Cramerton with a Dr. David Julen officiating. A graveside service followed at Evergreen “A Quiet Place”.

Afflicted but not crushed “Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence.” Genesis 6:11 NASB. Has this become our new normal? We go to bed mourning the senseless loss of lives from a mass shooting. We awaken to another tragic mass shooting. As clergy, we teach the children in our congregation to sing, “Jesus loves all the little children of the world.” And our adults sing peace in the valley. We cry out “peace, peace,” but many do not feel peace and security. We teach Christians are a people of reconciliation. We are reconciled to God and one another. Jesus has torn down the dividing wall of hostility. Meanwhile, we live in a world that is still divided, hostile, broken, and crying out in pain. While singing Jesus loves all the children of the world, we still see children tragically killed and hate among races. I am thankful for our first responders who are skillfully trained and always on call to respond. We continue to keep them in our prayers as we do the families who are suffering and mourning. It is our first responders who run into the midst of tragedy. And it is the clergy and local churches the people look to for a word of hope. What will we share when our hearts are heavy, and we too are searching for answers? How can we lead when words seem empty in light of the deep wounds of the heart? It is these moments we seek God’s inspired word. “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” John 14:27 NASB. The peace that Jesus speaks of giving is not the cessation of world enemies and

hostility. It is the peace of being reconciled to God and one another. Jesus speaks these words, knowing he is about to be brutality Rev. Angela Pleasants crucified. He teaches District his disciples you too Superintendent will go through hos- of Catawba Valley tility. The passage is Methodist Churches a reminder our peace and hope are not grounded in our circumstances but God. As Christians, we know this peace. And we extend this peace, love, and care to others, especially during times of great tragedy. We are not troubled, nor do we fear. We know our heart continually grows in God’s grace. We can be strong for others and allow them to lean upon us. We are not fearful because God’s perfect love drives out fear. Yes, we will encounter tragedy, and it will turn our world upside down. When this happens, it reminds us that something is wrong in our world. The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But we find hope in that Jesus came that we might have life in abundance. When we experience the atrocious acts of violence, we also see great demonstrations of love. Be the love that others need to see during this time and always. “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.” II Corinthians 4:8-10 NASB.

Don’t Give Up! Rev. Trent Rankin Salvation Church, Gastonia, NC

Are you the type of person who will never take no for an answer? You will do whatever you must, pay whatever costs, in order to accomplish what you have set out to do. For most of us, we face many things in our lives, whether it is a medical condition, financial problems, or trouble at home. Each of us face things that we need God to intervene in. In our relationship with God, it takes faith, trust, and persistence as God works in our life. We can never give up on God. Luke 18:1-8 records the Parable of the Persistent Widow. In this parable, Jesus speaks of a woman who was a widow. Not only had she lost her husband, she also had an adversary further making her life more miserable. This woman approached the local judge, so that he could intervene, and avenge her of her adversary. The judge neither feared God, nor cared for the woman, or anyone else. He would not help her. However, she kept coming back. Over and over again she returned, seeking help from the unjust judge. Finally, he helped her. He did not do it for God, or for her, he did it because her persistence was driving him crazy! If the unjust judge did this, think how much more God will do for His people, whom He loves. As we think of all of the things we face

each day in our lives, it is important to remember that God cares for us. We should never be afraid to go to God with our needs. I am sure the widow was Rev. Trent Tankin timid, as she approached the judge knowing his reputation. However, we should boldly go before God, seeking His hand in our life. Ask God to give you wisdom, ask Him for His healing touch. Ask Him for peace in your family. Unlike the judge, you will not annoy God. You are not insignificant to Him. God loves you. You are His child. Of all of creation, people are the only ones created in His divine image. God takes pleasure in meeting our needs. That does not mean that God is our personal genie, or Santa Claus. God is not waiting to rain money upon us, or give us the latest car. Like a parent loves and cares for their child, God cares for His children, you and me. When we seek Him, calling upon His name, He will answer. We need persistent faith. Call on God every day. When God’s time is right, in His will, He will answer. Jesus tells us in Luke 11:9, “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (NKJV). Call upon God today. Seek Him, ad He will be found. Have faith in God today, and never give up, because God has never given up on you.

Happenin’ Hillbilly’s Driving down I-85, there is a landmark that is unmistakable. For years it has watched over the interstate like a careful guardian; watching, waiting, and providing one of the most delicious aromas of smoked hickory and searing pork to grace one’s nostrils. Barbeque restaurants are a dime a dozen in North Carolina, but to this native of the county Hillbilly’s will always hold a special place in my heart. My wife and I were working out at the Pharr YMCA one evening and while our legs were running in place between a treadmill and stationary bike, our eyes were fueling our workout with the food network. Visions of chopped pulled pork, slaw, and hush puppies filled our minds as we both looked to one another in approval as if to say, “Yep… this is happening”. We began to think of the places we could go, but Hillbilly’s was the first restaurant we passed on the way home and it also fit the bill perfectly. Little did I know that the level of nostalgia would far surpass what I expected out of our dinner choice for the night. You see, back in the late nineties/early 2000’s I used to ride in the back seat of my dad’s truck on our way down the interstate on certain Friday nights. We would drive until we saw the unmistakable building looming over the McAdenville exit and go to the place that “made the good hush puppies” I used to say (and still do). We would park and once Dad entered, he would exit moments later with bags of delicious smelling food that taunted us the entire drive back to Lucia. We

would drive back to Maw Maw’s house where we honored our weekly ritual of either fish camp or barbeque takeout. I would commence to sitShelton Fisher ting in the dining room at my “kid’s table” so I could watch the new cartoons that came out on Friday nights while feasting on chopped pulled pork, hushpuppies, and arguably the best barbeque sauce I have ever tasted. Fast forward about twenty years and I sat awaiting my food like an expecting father. My order finally was called and the bags I remember were brought out. The same delicious aromas, the same smell of that unforgettable sauce (which they are now bottling; yes, I bought one). I drove home and sat the bags on the stove. After a quick shower, I made a plate full of the old-fashioned familiars with a few things I wouldn’t eat as a child and the memories poured in like sweet tea in a glass. I believe that the restaurant is to change locations soon. When I heard this news, I couldn’t help but be shocked at the idea of such a staple in the community relocating but change may not be a bad thing. Besides, just because there is a change in location doesn’t mean that good food changes. I’m sure that if the pork stays slow cooked and we know where to follow that succulent smell, Hillbilly’s will remain a happenin’ spot.

Belmont Frame and Art Shop got a nice going away gift from summer intern Eveland Davis who created this beautiful mural on the side of the store. Davis is a 2017 South Point high grad and attends Appalachian State where she’s studying studio art. The idea came from store owner Nancy Albright who wanted a mountain scene. Davis took the idea and ran with it coming up with this Western North Carolina panorama that took two months to create. Photos by Alan Hodge

Falls prevention workshop scheduled Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling? Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall? If so, A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls is a program for you. One out of three adults age 65 and older fall each year. As we age, we can develop a fear of falling. This fear can result in a decrease in physical activity and lead to increased isolation. Studies show 30% of individuals who fall suffers injuries that decrease mobility and independence and result in high medical costs. The National Council on Aging reported the total cost of fall injuries in 2013 was $34 billion with 78% being paid by Medicare. Now is the time to take control by learning how to prevent falls and to manage falls that may happen. “A Matter of Balance”, a national program sponsored by Centralina Area Agency on Aging, will be offered by NC Cooperative Extension and Gaston County Adult Services beginning in July. This program is provided at no cost to participants and valued at more than $800. You will learn how to make changes to reduce fall risks at home, view falls as controllable, increase physical activity, increase strength and balance, problem solve, and set goals. If you are concerned about falls or have fallen in the past – this program is for you! “A Matter of Balance”

can help older adults improve their quality of life and remain independent. “This program makes such a difference in the lives of workshop participants,” says Linda Minges, a program instructor, “the fear of falling could actually lead to a fall because that fear limits activities, causes difficult emotions and leads to isolation, which can lead to poor balance and weakness.” The Matter of Balance workshop consists of eight sessions and will be held at the Lucile Tatum Center, located at 959 Osceola St., Gastonia, beginning in October. The program is scheduled for Thursdays, October 3rd – November 21st from 2pm to 4pm. There is no cost to you.

Pre-registration is required by September 21st by contacting Pam Bryson, program instructor: 704.865.3291 or Need a ride to this workshop? If you are currently registered to ride ACCESS through the Senior Transportation program at DSS, you can make an appointment with ACCESS for this workshop.

The power of flowers through Flower Power In June, Keep Belmont Beautiful started a summer test pilot program called Flower Power. The intent is to create a group of volunteers to maintain the downtown flower beds. The city arranges for the raised beds to be planted, mulched, and watered; but, our volunteers maintain the beds by weeding and deadheading the flow-

ers. They also report their time and provide feedback to our part-time director, Beryl Campbell. We feel it’s giving back to our community by enhancing the growth and beauty of these plantings. The flower beds that our group maintains are located on either side of Main Street from the railroad tracks to the clock at the corner of Main

Nancy Bosch and Shirley Brown

and Catawba for a total of 31 flower beds. Volunteers are assigned specific raised beds to care for and encouraged to create a small group of friends to make it a fast, social and a supportive environment. The group decides when weeding

fits their schedule, and Keep Belmont Beautiful provides gloves and reflective vests. The volunteers also bring their own buckets and deposit their weeds in the trash receptacles located along main street..

Our chair, Susan Wall, is delighted to report that we already have a great group of volunteers but we are still looking for a few good weed warriors! If you’re interested in joining Flower Power, please give Susan a call at 704-907-5257. We would also like to recognize our Flower Power

Gaston Christian School student attends Space Academy Adelai Hardin, a rising 7th-grader at Gaston Christian School, recently attended Space Academy at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, home of Space Camp®, Space Camp® Robotics™, Aviation Challenge®, U.S. Cyber Camp® and NASA Marshall Space Flight Center’s Official Visitor Center. This was Adelai’s second year attending the Space Academy. She’s a member of the GCS Eagle Squadron Robotics Team. The week long educational program promotes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), while training students and with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork,

leadership and problem-solving. This program is specifically designed for trainees who have a passion for space exploration. Adelai spent the week training with a team that flew a simulated space mission to the International Space Station (ISS), the Moon or Mars. The crew participated in experiments and successfully completed an extra-vehicular activity (EVA), or spacewalk. Adelai and crew returned to earth in time to graduate with honors. Space Camp operates year-round in Huntsville, Alabama, and uses astronaut training techniques to engage trainees in real-world applications of STEM subjects.

Students sleep in quarters designed to resemble the ISS and train in simulators like those used by NASA. More than 900,000 trainees have graduated from a Space Camp® program since its inception in Huntsville, Alabama, in 1982, including European Space Agency astronaut, Samantha Cristoforetti and NASA astronauts Dottie Metcalf-Lindenburger, Dr. Kate Rubins, Dr. Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Christina Koch, who is serving onboard the International Space Station. Children and teachers from all 50 states and almost 150 international locations have attended a Space Camp® program.

Tri-County Animal Rescue:

Pet of the Week Tri-County Animal Rescue Pet of the Week is a family of beautiful Chihuahua/Terrier mixed pups. We have two sisters named Stacy and Jenny. There is also a brother named Chuck. These babies are 4 months old and weigh about 10 pounds. The grooming for these pups is very simple…bath and brushing. They will stay small as adults. The pups are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Come on out…we will be looking for you. Chihuahuas are comical, entertaining, and loyal little dogs. They are absolutely brimming with personality – often a quirky and eccentric personality unmatched by any other breed. Chihuahuas do seem to recognize and prefer their own breed, so it’s a great idea to keep two of them. They keep each other company when you’re gone, they play together, clean each other’s ears (Chihuahuas can be obsessive ear-lickers!), and keep each other warm by snuggling together. Chihuahuas adore warmth! They will seek out the tiniest sunspot in which to bask, and they tunnel under blankets and towels. You have to be careful whenever you sit down on your sofa or bed, as there could be a Chihuahua tucked under there! If you want a dog that: is small and easy to carry, comes in several different coats and colors, is oh-so-funny and entertaining in quirky ways, is very loyal, travels well, doesn’t need much exercise, LOVES warm sunny climates, usually has a long lifespan…..then a Chihuahua may be right for you! If you are looking for an addition to your family, please come out and meet our pets this weekend. We have many available pets at the Gastonia PetSmart located at 3698 East

Franklin Boulevard this Saturday noon to 6 pm. About Tri-County Animal Rescue Tri-County Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization serving Lincoln, Gaston and other surrounding counties. We are committed to ending pet homelessness in this area and we need your continued support. If you cannot adopt a pet, then support Tri-County in other ways. We need volunteers and donations to continue our mission of finding homes for these unwanted animals. Please help Tri-County Animal Rescue continue to save pets by adopting your next pet this weekend? Our “needs” list includes: towels, Clorox, laundry detergent, paper towels, dry dog food and dry cat food.

MHSHOF 2019 inductees 1978 East Gaston football team By Kathy Blake The game program cost 25 cents. The front was block letters, black type: NCHSAA 3-A Football Play-Off Statesville Greyhounds – Vs – East Gaston Warriors Senior High Stadium November 10, 1978 8 p.m. East Gaston (9-1) coach Jerry Adams brought 21 seniors, 14 juniors and five sophomores to the Warriors’ first state playoff game in school history. The Greyhounds (9-1) brought a team that had outscored its opponents 359-120, including a 61-8 win over Mooresville the week before. “I think we’ll represent the (Southwestern) conference well, but we’ve got an awfully tough first-round opponent,” Adams told the media before the game. “We don’t have any real superstars. We just play together very well as a team.” But the Warriors did have superstars. They were the first EG team to beat rival South Point. They were the first to win a conference championship. They finished with the best record in school history (10-2), a mark that lasted until 2006. Their coach was Southwestern Coach of the Year. And with a 21-20 victory that November night over Western 3-A Piedmont Conference champs Statesville, the 1978 East Gaston High School football team got its first post-season win. For all its accomplishments, the 1978 team is inducted into the Mount Holly Sports Hall of Fame. “There were some exceptional athletes they had to

compete against. It was not a cakewalk by any means to win the conference,” says Hall of Fame member Doug Smith, who was EG’s junior varsity coach at the time. “We came back and rallied and beat Statesville and the place went crazy. The school went crazy. The community went crazy.” Statesville led 20-0 in the first half before wingback Tracy Black and tailback Richard Dill, who finished with 179 yards rushing, scored to make it 20-13 at halftime. Dill scored again with 5:28 remaining to make it 20-19, setting up the chance to go for 2. Sophomore quarterback Derek Spears ran it in. “I had no qualms about going for the two-point conversion,” Adams told the media. “Spears had the choice of either pitching out or running in for the score. It was beautiful to see him race into the end zone for that two-point conversion. I must have jumped about 3 feet in the air.” “I slid into the end zone like I was stealing second base,” Spears says. “That was exciting. We got the option run pretty well, and Richard went like, 20, 30 yards … boom, boom, boom… and we came back at the end.” “We practiced this play,” Dill says, “and they said, ‘Don’t go the wrong way!’ But guess what, I went the wrong way, and their guy followed me, and it turned out really good.” The game would be the last win for East Gaston, which lost the following week to Brevard 42-0. Five players – end Vance Luckey, tackle Billy Joe Davis, Dill, linebacker Allen Lewis and Black – were named to the All-Gazetteland all-star team. Some played ball after high school: Dill at East Ten-

nessee State, Black at N.C. State for baseball and Spears at Clemson for baseball. “What I remember, more than anything, is that we were a real close-knit group up guys,” Dill says. “And that year was just an amazing, special year. It was like everything was right. Coach Adams had everything going the right way, and a great deal of that was the way we practiced, the way we conducted ourselves at practice and around school. You have to give Coach Adams credit for that. With us being young men it’s so easy to get sidetracked, but he kept us focused.” In the spring, the East Gaston yearbook paid tribute to the team: “The East Gaston Warriors Football Team ended this season with the best record in the school’s seven year history. Their conference record of 8-1 gave them the conference co-title and a berth in the state playoffs for the first time in East Gaston history. In the playoffs, the Warriors defeated Statesville and then lost to Brevard in the second round. This ended their season at 10 wins and 2 losses. “The football team consisted of 21 seniors, 14 juniors, and 5 sophomores. After working hard during the summer lifting weights and running, the Warriors prepared for what was to be a prosperous season. The long hours of practicing and viewing films of opponents paid off for the Warriors. Giving up 81 total points, they scored 194 total points. “The dedication and pride exhibited by all of the team members should be a guide for future Warriors. Their total commitment to the football program has lifted the sights of any pessimistic followers. The East Gaston football team has instituted a

winning spirit that shall grow in the coming years.” “That senior class was a good class,” Spears says. “And our baseball team came in second that year.” East Gaston opened its season with a 28-0 win over East Lincoln and followed with victories over Burns, R.S. Central, Shelby and North Gaston before losing 26-7 to Chase. They followed that with a 20-15 win over rival South Point and finished the regular season by beating Crest, Kings Mountain and East Rutherford. Dill, who got an invite from the Houston Oilers after college and previously was inducted in the MHSHOF as an individual, says the 1978 team earned its place in the Hall. “I look back, and look at some of the other classes that have come through there,” Dill says, “and there’s never been another team like that. I tell my friends all the time, the Lord was on us that year.” The picture in the EG yearbook doesn’t list first names under the players’ picture. It merely reads: 1st row: S. Burrell, D. Bynum, D. Spears, C. McGee, T. Black, E. McCorkle, R. Dill, M. Robbins. 2nd row: M. Schronce, H. Underdown, A. Lewis, J. Baker, L. Isley, R. Ferrell, K. Cornwell, J. Morris, B.J. Davis. 3rd row: R. Patterson, K. Ottinger, D. Smith, S. Farmer, D. Duncan, R. Randolph, R. Wooten, C. Guice, D. Chriswell. 4th row: M. Webb, C. Anderson, B. Pritchett, B. Coble, V. Luckey, B. Thrower, W. Hall, M. Pressley. Not pictured: S. Devinney. Dill mentions someone valuable to the team’s success who isn’t in that photo. “There’s somebody that was very much a part of that team, who never played. Miss (Edie) Adams,” he says. “A lot of times, people don’t realize how much time a coach spends away from their home, with other people’s children, and not a lot of time with their own children. So I really want to say thank you to Miss

Adams for her willingness to stand beside and with Coach Adams through those years. He taught school; we’d be out on the field all day…and you just have to be a special wife to understand that, you know?” And understand the extended family her husband was creating through football players. “I was talking to someone a few years back,” Dill says, “about how special we were, and I have to give credit to

God for that. We had a lot of special people, and everyone did their role, whether it was to get water, or pick up footballs, everybody participated. And that, in itself, is special. Everybody’s important.” Tickets: “The banquet is Saturday, August 17, 2019, at the Municipal Complex at 6pm. Doors open at 5. Tickets are available at Moose Drugs and David’s Detailing and from committee members for $20.”
