Jack Frost rode into our region last Friday on a snow sled and decided to stay a while. In meteorological terms, we had the first snowfall of 2017 followed by record setting low temperatures for a couple of days. The atmospheric action began Friday evening with a drizzle of cold rain that turned to big flakes of snow. The snow continued Friday night and by the time folks roused from their slumbers on Saturday morning the landscape was a winter wonderland. The flakes continued to fall in varying degrees of intensity until about noon when it stopped and the sun came out. Even though the snow stopped, temperatures plunged. The high on Saturday struggled to hit the freezing mark and Saturday night saw single digits. Sunday morning temperatures were around 14F and never got over the freezing mark all day. Sunday night was a repeat and Monday had folks dragging back to work in air hovering in the high teens and struggling to top 32F in the day. Monday night was another cold one but Tuesday saw a “heat wave” show up and the temperature finally made an upswing to more reasonable levels. Of course the snow and frigid temps threw our area into turmoil. Duke Energy reported numerous power outages. Saturday morning had over 1,000 houses in the North Belmont/Hickory Grove Rd. area in the cold and dark starting around 8:30am but crews rushed out and had it back up within a couple of hours. Road conditions went bad early Friday night. However, City of Belmont, City of Mt. Holly, other area municipality street crews and NCDOT workers had planned ahead and brined, Photo by Alan Hodge

Troop 56 Recognizes Two Eagle Scouts Stewart Butt and Zachary Mosteller were honored during an Eagle Scout Court of Honor held Sunday Dec 18th at 2:00pm in the Troop 56 Scout hut in Belmont, NC. Stewart Butt is a freshman at Furman University and the son of Jim and Mary Butt of Belmont. Zachary Mosteller is a freshman at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and the son of Doug and Tonia Mosteller, also of Belmont. The outstanding personal achievement of these young men is footnoted by the fact that they are the 102nd and 103rd Troop 56 Scouts to earn the Eagle Scout Award. “This is a huge achievement, especially when you consider that only 4-5% of boys who join Scouting achieve the rank of Eagle Scout,” said troop 56 Scoutmaster, Allan Haggai. “It is no easy task and a distinctive title; one that is carried for a lifetime. The entire troop is proud to see Stewart and Zachary achieve this honor.” Troop 56 was first chartered in 1956 and has built a rich history of serving the Belmont community with hundreds of young boys filling its ranks for 60 years. Today, the troop has 35 active youth members and 7 adult volunteer leaders. The troop is sponsored by First United Methodist Church located at 807 South Point Road in Belmont, NC led by Pastor George Ragsdale. Scouting was introduced to the United States in 1910 based on a framework developed by visionary British army officer and youth advocate, Baden Powell. He believed that young boys should learn principles of good citizenship, an appreciation for the outdoors and acquire the skills needed to thrive in the woods. Today, U.S. scouting membership is approx. 2.5 million strong, with its members providing an average of 17 million hours of service each year in communities large and small. Troop 56 is part of the Two Rivers District in the Piedmont Council, Boy Scouts of America. The troop was first chartered in 1956 to Stewart Butt and Zachary Mosteller First United Methodist Church in Belmont, NC

Belmont council approves rowing lease The Belmont city council kicked off 2017 with a meeting on January 2 that saw approval of a lease agreement with Belmont Rowing Center LLC that will allow the organization to move its base from the Belmont Riverside Complex to Kevin Loftin Riverfront Park. The agreement will allow Belmont Rowing Center to store its boats and equipment and have a launching area as well at the new location. The agreement has a length of no longer than ten years. When Riverfront Park was originally designed, plans were for a canoe and kayak launch area near where the motorized launch area will be located behind Dale's Superette near the US29/74 bridge. However, due to poor soil conditions, that idea was nixed. The plan now is to move the launch north and have Belmont Rowing Center as well as the public use the same spot for canoe and kayak launching. BRC and the city will share the cost of construction. The city and Belmont Rowing Center will be hiring Davidson-based Permits 4U, Inc. to wade through the Federal Regulatory Com-

mission application. The fee will be around $6,000 to be split even-Steven between the city and BRC. The council also gave the green light to a lease agreement with Alliance Real Estate, Inc. for the parking lot that firm owns on Glenway St. between Wells Fargo ATM and the NCDOT Rail Division parking lot. The Alliance lot has been closed and cabled for the past several months due to maintenance and liability issues. The initial term for the lease runs through December 31, 2018. At the end of the initial term, and each following year afterwards on December 31 , the lease will renew automatically for a year up to ten years total unless either party gives 30 days notice of non-renewal to the other. The city will pay $708.33 per month to Belmont Rowing Center is currently basing its boats on the shore at Riverside Dr. in East Bellease the lot and be responsible for all main- mont. tenance and repair including snow removal. Photo by Alan Hodge Once the lot is open for public use, the city may possibly charge folks to avail themselves of it, but that will be ironed out at a future date.

2017 Gaston County MLK Unity Awards will honor Cloninger, Guthrie and Moore The Gaston Clergy & Citizens Coalition (GC3), an initiative of Gaston Together, will present the 2017 Gaston County MLK Unity Awards to Sheriff Alan G. Cloninger, Dorothy Littlejohn Guthrie and David Lee Moore, Sr. on Monday, January 16th at 10:30 am at the MLK Plaza. The Plaza is located on the corner of MLK Way/Marietta St. and Long Ave. in downtown Gastonia. The Gaston County MLK Unity Award was established in 2004 by the GC3. The award recognizes current or former Gaston County citizens who have performed exemplary community service to help build bridges of unity across lines of race, class, gender, faith and/or municipalities within our county. Names of the honorees are engraved on the MLK Monument located at the Plaza. Some of the past winners include: Senator Marshall Rauch, the late N. A. Smith, Rev. Houston Matthews, James Biggers, Rev. Dr. Richard Boyce and Judge Jesse Caldwell. Familiar to many through her work with Gaston County Schools, Dorothy (Dot) Guthrie is a retired School Administrator in North Carolina. She holds both a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Winthrop University. She served as the library director for Gaston County Schools and was the Media Coordinator of the Year for three consecutive years. With an obvious passion for children, Ms. Guthrie is the author of Integrating African American Literature in the Library and Classroom. She also coordinated the first Gaston County Diversity Book Fair. In addition, her interest in youth and education led her to seek a position on the Gaston County Board of Education, a seat for which she was recently reelected. Ms. Guthrie is an Associate Minister at Tabernacle Baptist Church and is a former

Spiritual Counselor at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, NC. Sheriff Alan Cloninger is a native of Dallas, North Carolina and a life-long resident of Gaston County. He is a graduate of UNCC and Campbell University School of Law. He has served as the Gaston County Sheriff since he was first elected to that position in 2004. He worked as an attorney prior to becoming Sheriff. Community service work has been a major part of his life. Over the years, he has worked with many organizations and has served on the Boards of Directors of the Dallas Optimist Club (former President), Gastonia East Rotary Club, Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club and Gaston County Parks & Rec along with the Gaston College Board of Trustees to name just a few. His love of this community and interest in serving all citizens of this county have been a guiding force in his work to support our community. Although David Moore, Sr. was born in Kinston, NC, he has made Gastonia his home since the early 60’s moving here to work for Gaston County Schools. He served as a teacher, guidance counselor, assistant principal retiring as the principal of Pleasant Ridge Elementary School. He has worked for more than thirty years to improve his community for example supporting the effort to build a new fire station in the Highland area. Mr. Moore has dedicated most of his service though to his work with the Gaston County Organization for Community Concerns serving as its president for thirty-two years. He the recipient of the North Carolina Human Relations Community Involvement Awards and the Order of Long Leaf Pine. The presentation of the awards will be part of an annual event designed by the GC3 to

They Came Through Here Belmont’s Proud Connection to the Battle of Kings Mountain


he Battle of Kings Mountain on Oct. 7, 1780 was the “turning of the tide” in the American Revolution, a conflict between Americans — Whig rebels from the backcountry against Loyalists trained as British forces. Newly uncovered history now reveals that over a quarter of the men fighting at Kings Mountain, including the Lincoln County militia, marched up the Catawba River valley before joining up with the overmountain men in eager pursuit of British Major Patrick Ferguson. Major William Chronicle led the heartiest of rangers from the South Fork. They marched as far as any other patriots to get to a battle that was in their own backyard. The heroes of Kings Mountain, indeed, —

Get ready for cold weather Severe winter weather–including snow, ice, and freezing rain is upon us. AAA Carolinas offers the following tips for driving in winter weather and preparing your home for potentially icy conditions:

DRIVING ON ICE: • Avoid unnecessary travel – No one can drive well on ice. Listen to authorities’ recommendations and delay travel until road conditions improve. • Accelerate, decelerate and turn slowly – Everything takes longer in icy conditions, so be sure to leave enough space between you and the vehicle in front of you – a following distance of 8-10 seconds. • Don’t stop if you can avoid it – There’s a big difference in the amount of inertia it takes to start moving from a full stop versus how much it takes to get moving while still rolling. • Don’t power up hills – Applying extra gas on icy roads just starts your wheels spinning. Try to get a little inertia going before you reach the hill and let that inertia carry you to the top. Avoid stopping while going up a hill. • Don’t use cruise control – You may need to quickly reduce your speed by lifting off

the accelerator, which cannot be easily accomplished on slick roads when cruise control is engaged. • To get out of a skid – Lightly take your foot off the brake or gas and try to regain traction. Always look and steer where you want to go. • Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle – Include an ice scraper, kitty litter or sand for traction, jumper cables, cell phone with a car charger, blankets, gloves, hats, food, water and any needed medications. Be sure to bundle up with a winter coat, boots, gloves and a hat in case you get stranded. • If you become snowbound – Stay with your vehicle. It provides temporary shelter and makes it easier for rescuers to locate you. • Stay on major routes – If you must drive, stick to thoroughfares that have been plowed or treated and stay in the most recently cleared lane. • Use extra caution on bridges and overpasses – They freeze because they are exposed to air on all of their surfaces. • Fill up on windshield washer fluid – Salt brine and sand from treated roadways will build up on your windshield, so be sure to have enough washer fluid to keep it clear. Opt for windshield washer fluid with a low freez-

ing point to help keep ice and snow from sticking to your windshield. • Avoid distractions – Power off or store your cell phone, turn down the music and focus on driving. TIPS FOR HOMEOWNERS: • Stock up on essentials and emergency items – In case of loss of power or impassable roads, be sure to have several flashlights with batteries, a battery-powered radio and a car charger for your cell phone. • Trim tree branches in your yard – Before the storm approaches, trim tree limbs that hang over power lines. • If loss of power occurs – Avoid opening the refrigerator and freezer as much as possible to keep the temperature lower for a longer period of time. Unplug all appliances and leave only one light on to prevent a power surge. • Prevent pipes from freezing and bursting – Keep your home heated to a minimum of 65 degrees, open faucets enough to let them drip slowly and disconnect hoses from outside spigots. If pipes freeze, thaw them immediately or contact a plumber for assistance. Most homeowners’ insurance policies cover damage resulting from a freeze, but check your policy to make sure.

Make disciples The mission statement of the United Methodist denomination is following Jesus, make disciples, transform the world. What does it mean to “make disciples?” To make disciples is more than training for church leadership positions, although this is essential. To Rev. Angela Pleasants make a disciple is investing in someone. It is the act of pouring my life and District learning into another. “Having so fond Superintendent an affection for you, we were wellof Catawba Valley Methodist Churches pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives. You are witnesses, and so is God, how devoutly and uprightly and blamelessly we behaved toward you believers; just as you know how we were exhorting and encouraging and imploring each one of you as a father would his own children, so that you would walk in a manner worthy of the God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.” I Thessalonians 2:8, 10-12 NASB. I often hear the question, “How do we make disciples?” To answer this question, one must ask and answer “Am I a disciple?” Paul knew before he could teach the Christians at Thessalonica, he had to live and act in a certain way. To live as a disciple is to have the same attitude as Jesus. “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 2:5 NASB. Once we are growing and maturing in the faith, we can disciple others in their spiritual development. During my teenage and young adult years, I witnessed holy women who invested in us, young women. I remember the faithful life of my grandmother and aunts. And I remember two ladies from my home church who devoted their life as disciples of Christ. Mrs. Francis Miller and Mrs. Ella Mae Miller were faithful and committed Christians. They did not teach me about famous theologians such as Karl Barth and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. They taught me the importance of faith, commitment, and perseverance. They taught me lessons on being a virtuous, godly woman of faith. By observing their life, I learned how to praise God even amid adversity. The essence of making disciples is investing your life in another to help them grow as a faithful disciple of Christ. Each of us should have someone investing in us and someone that we are investing in their life.

South Point takes out Huss in OT thriller By John Wilson

The South Point/Hunter Huss boys basketball game last week was a doozy. It was the kind of game where if you got up to get some popcorn you may miss something. In a back and forth game that rolled into overtime the Red Raiders outlasted the Hunter Huss Huskies 74-69. Right from the beginning it was on. Both teams teams moved the ball inside and out looking for what would work. Huss took an early lead but South Point responded moving ahead 7-6 with 4:10 on the scoreboard. South Point started to increase their lead off a series of great baskets. First they went up 10-6 when Blake Zieske hit a nice 3 pointer. A few plays after that Niren Johal stole the ball and drove down for a lay up that put South Point up 12-8. Zieske would go on to lead the South Point scoring effort against Huss pouring in 22 points. In the early going the game was fluid and fast. South Point was moving the ball well. However, as good as South Point was playing a noticeable pattern started to develop. A pattern that carried on for the entire game. Huss started to match everything South Point did. If South Point scored, Huss responded. Sometimes the Huskies would even sneak in a point here and there. Just as quickly as South Point developed a lead. Huss erased it. The period ended with the score tied up at 12-12. In the 2nd period South Point stated to push ahead. At the 6:10 mark, Blake Turner hit a 3 pointer that put South Point up 18-14. South Point keyed on that and pushed out further. The Red Raiders capitalized on Huss mistakes. For a while Huss was throwing up rocks, while SP was sinking baskets. With 5 minutes left in the half the Red Raiders were up 24-16. Then, as they did the whole game Huss countered. The Huskies started to hit their shots and the Red Raiders struggled to hit thiers. A once promising South Point lead was whittling away. Another thing whittling away was South Point starters. In the final 2 minutes Niren Johal went down hard. We was helped off the court and joined Scooch Baker at the trainer’s table. Baker had gone down earlier with an ankle injury. With Baker and Johal down SP turned to the bench. The additional players helped stop the Huss rally. South Point went into the half with a 26-24 lead. Huss wasted no time when the 3rd period opened up. They quickly tied the game up and then jumped out to a 28-26 lead. It was now the Red Raiders turn to answer the challenge. The lead changed hands twice before South Point started to establish some sense of control. Midway through the 3rd the Red Raiders were up 36-30. Even with South Point edging ahead Huss fought back. The Huskies did what they did in the 1st half. They matched South Point scores, and at times added some of their own. As the period ended it was still anyone’s game. South Point went into the 4th period with a 44-40 lead. The 4th period started out like a chess match up. Move, counter move. When South Point scored, Huss responded. Even though Huss played SP tight the Red Raiders did enough to keep the Huskies at arms length. So when the Red Raiders were up 58-50 with 2 minutes to go it was looking like South Point could just run out the clock. At first it looked like Huss was going to help South Point do just that. In the closing minutes Huss was making tactical errors. Huss was making up ground but they were not using their time with the ball wisley. Instead of going for quick strikes Huss held onto the ball. It was looking like those seconds spent passing the ball around would sink Huss. Well, it didn’t work out that way. With 7.7 seconds on the clock South Point was up 62-59. Huss put the ball into play. A quick down court pass was followed up by a Huss 3 pointer that was launched from Albuquerque. The ball seemed to hang in the air forever. Of course any ball traveling to Belmont via New Mexico may take some time. When the ball swished in the crowd was stunned. Huss erased a significant lead in the closing minutes. The game was tied up 62-62. With .07 seconds on the clock the game was about to go into overtime. South Point tried a New Mexico shot of their own to win the day, but that shot bounced off of the top of the backboard glass. It a stunning come from behind effort Huss took the game into overtime. Overtime proved to be exciting but South Point didn’t plan on letting Huss get away with what they pulled off in the 4th.

Lady Raiders fall to Huss 69-29 By John Wilson

The South Point Lady Raiders basketball team ran into a road block last week when they took on Hunter Huss in a Big South 2A/3A matchup. South Point just couldn’t anything going falling to Huss 69-29. Things started out slow for each side in the 1st period. Each team misfired trying to establish their rhythm. The Lady Huskies were the ones to finally get on track when they moved out to a 10-2 lead with 3:35 on the clock. South Point pushed, but came up short. The period ended with Huss up 17-5. South Point tried to bounce back in the 2nd. The Lady Raiders tried to move the ball inside but were blunted by a tough Lady Huskie defense. South Point then tried to hit shots off of the perimeter. But that didn’t work either. Huss on the other hand hit their shots. The Lady Huskies put up 31 points in the 2nd period. They went into the locker room at halftime with a 48-14 lead. In the 3rd period, South Point started to respond. They picked up the scoring tempo and started to do more to disrupt the Huss offense. Unfortunately the success was short lived. Huss countered the South Point effort with a swarming defense. The Lady Huskies stole the ball 23 times. As the game wore on the scoreboard told the tale. Huss was just too much for SP. Despite the score the Lady Raiders never gave up. Huss was all over them. All game long, but there was never a look of defeat on the South Point bench. South Point kept fighting. One play in particular highlighted South Point courage and woes. Late in the 4th period freshman Portia Shouse pushed hard to put a layup in. Shouse missed, but went right back up to try and get the rebound. In the battle for the ball Huss defender came down hard on Shouse, slamming her onto the court. When Shouse hit the ground with a THUMP the impact vibrated through the bleachers. The play drew a foul and Shouse went to the line for two shots. Her first shot didn’t go in. While shooting her second shot a team mate lost their balance and committed a line violation. Shouse’s shot was good, but due to the violation the shot didn’t count. It just wasn’t South Point’s day. Even when something good happened for the Lady Raiders something else quickly erased it. South Point lost 69-29. They have a long way to go. The difficulties and obstacles the team needs to overcome are not lost on head coach Amanda Hodge. “We are a young team,” Hodge said. “We only have one to two seniors starting.” The no quit attitude of the team is something Hodge is grateful for. “They work hard,” Hodge said. They never quit. They are just young. For half the team this is their second sport.” One notable absence was senior Jaelin Griffin. The 5’10

We miss her experience and height.” Hopefully Griffin will get back into the lineup sooner and the younger players will learn on the fly. On the stat side Kiara Falls and Abbie Morgan had six points apiece to lead South Point in scoring. Portia Shouse was South Point’s top rebounder with six boards.

SOUTH POINT From page 12

Huss chose to amp things up by playing aggressive defense. They pressed and pushed South Point trying to get the ball back. Sometimes it worked. But more times then not it didn’t. The Huss defense kept sending Blake Turner to the line. As it turned out Turner sunk Huss. Throughout the game, Turner went to the line 14 times against Huss. He hit 12 of those shots. So if Huss was going to push it South Point was going to feed Turner. That turned out to be an exchange Huss lost. It’s not a good idea to foul a guy who is hitting 86% of his free throws. Thanks in part to Turner’s free throws South Point walked out with a 72-67 win. The win was a big one for South Point. “I’m proud of our boys,” head coach Kody Kubbs said. “We had to fight through some adversity, injuries and foul trouble.” The injuries were definitely on Kubbs mind. However the response of the players that stepped in to carry the load was also worth noting. “Our guys stepped up,” Kubbs said. “The skill level is all over the chart. We have 10 guys that know what they need to do.” The extent of Baker’s injury is still not fully known. Baker tried to come back in the 3rd but could really put pressure on his ankle. “Scooch went out with an injury,” Kubbs said. “We tried to

Thursday, January 12, 2017 come back in but couldn’t. He is getting X-rays.” Baker’s status is up in the air. The status of Nihen Johal on the other hand is not. The 5’10 senior has toughed out injuries all year. After getting hurt in the closing moments of the 2nd period Johal got treatment and went back in. He only hit the bench again after fouling out late in the 4th. Johal’s toughness is something South Point needs. “He is held together with duct tape,” coach Kubbs joked. “He has played through a whole slew of injuries. But for 32 minutes he is 100%.” This week South Point will be busy. They have three games in four days. They take on North Gaston, East Gaston and Cramer.
