Couple charged with child endangerment

Remembering Reid High School

Belmont couple charged for endangerment, suspected drug lab

Reid High School on Sacco Street in Belmont may have been torn down in 1966, but its memory has never been erased from the hearts and minds of its former students. That fact was clearly evident on Sept. 7 when over 100 folks gathered at the corner of Sacco and Cedar streets, where Reid High had once stood, to honor its memory with the dedication of a roadside historical marker. The event was attended by Reid community folks of all ages, dignitaries, and many who had attended the school during its years of operation that began in 1918. Reid School, as it would become known was started just after WWI in a small building on Sacco St. The first principal was Charles Jessie Reid. It was the school where local African-American children were educated. Students that attended Reid School came from as far away as South Gastonia. Some walked as far as five miles to attend classes. Others rode in an old vehicle that had been converted into a makeshift bus. Reid School grew and by the 1940s was expanded to include high school grades. The school sports nickname and mascot was the Rams, and students excelled on and off the athletic field. Graduates included artist Juan Logan, political activist Ron

A Belmont man and woman were arrested for endangering a young child while running a suspected methamphetamine lab from their home at 817 Gaston Avenue Ext. in Belmont. Belmont Police Chief Charlie Franklin said that the lab was discovered Thursday night, when investigators went out to the residence for a “knock and talk� interview along with a Kimberly Hall Gaston County DSS case worker. Gaston County DSS was there to investigate a complaint of a 3year-old child being in the house while meth was being cooked. After making contact with the residents, Belmont officers obtained consent to search the home. A 3-yearold boy along with a 51- Robin Rhyne Jr. year-old woman and 27-year-old man lived in the home. During that search police discovered equipment and the precursor over the counter medications necessary to make methamphetamine. This led officers to believe that the residence was being used to manufacture the drug. The Belmont Criminal Investigations Division (CID) along with the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigations and the Gaston County Police Department executed a search to process the scene. Further evidence associated with the manufacturing of methamphetamine was found. As a result of the investigation Belmont police arrested Robin Rhyne Jr., 27, and Kimberly Hall, 51, both of 817 Gaston Ave. Ext. The pair were charged with an assortment of felony charges associated with the possession and manufacturing of methamphetamine. They were also charged with misdemeanor child abuse in connection to the presence of a child in an alleged meth lab. Rhyne was placed in the Gaston County Jail under a 100,000 secured bond. Hall received a $60,000 bond.

MH Historical Society alive and well Audio visual and oral presentations were the main focus of the Sept. 9 Mount Holly city council meeting. Chelsea Bailey, who interned this summer with the City of Mount Holly and is a senior Broadcast Media major at North Greenville University as well as the granddaughter of councilmember Carolyn Breyare, showed several examples of promotional videos she had created for and in the municipality. “This summer, I created promotional brochures, took pictures, and made marketing videos for the City,� Bailey said. They will be displayed on the city website soon. I also took pictures around Mount Holly and in the various city departments.� Bailey showed the council three videos she had created. The first featured “slice of life� segments in Mount Holly such as the downtown area, rail lights flashing, shops, parks, and people generally enjoying a swell lifestyle. Bailey’s second video featured local shop and other See COUNCIL, 5A

A new life for an old mill ALAN HODGE

Thanks to the vision of John Church, CEO of Waterstone Asset Management and Church Realty, new life is likely going to be breathed into Belmont’s oldest cotton mill. Located on Catawba St., the 110,000 sq. ft. Chronicle Mill was built in 1901 by R.L. Stowe and other investors. Workers who laid the bricks for the imposing three-story structure earned $1.75 for every thousand they put down. Timber and other lumber used in the building cost $13 per thousand board feet delivered to the site. The mill’s name was chosen to honor a Revolutionary War patriot from Gaston County, Major William Chronicle, who had lived near the mill site and was killed in the Battle of King’s Mountain in October 1780. The first bale of cotton was fed into the Chronicle Mill’s steam-powered machinery on Feb. 28, 1902. By 1908, the mill

Aftermath of Hugo not forgotten By Alan Hodge

It’s been nearly a quarter century since Hurricane Hugo pounded the Piedmont on Sept. 22, 1989, but the memory of that meteorological mayhem is preserved in the Belmont Banner and Mount Holly News archival volumes and their on-the-spot reporting of the storm, the cleanup, and how local folks pulled together to recover from the disaster. The first edition of the Banner to come out after Hugo was dated Sept. 27. In the five days since the storm, staff members had fanned out across the local landscape photographing the devastation and interviewing folks. The entire region, including Gaston County, had been declared a disaster area by President Bush. The first image folks saw on the front

REID HS: celebrated, remembered

Photos by Alan Hodge

Reid High grads Oscar Reid and Sherrill Hart looked over some of the school memorabilia on display at the historical marker dedication. From page 1A Last year, Reid High Class of 1956 alumni JoAnn Holmes and others approached the Belmont City Council about the possibility of erecting an historical marker where the school once stood. “They came back in just two weeks and said it could be done,â€? said Holmes. The marker itself is similar to those that the state of NC puts up at or near historical sites. On it are listed the dates that Reid School operated as well as the names and dates of its principals‌starting with Charles Jessie Reid. The school Ram symbol as well as the m o t t o “Tho’ the building is destroyed, the spirit of Reid High lives on forever in our memoryâ€? also appears on the sign as well as credits to the Class of 1956, the Belmont City Council and the Reid High Alumni. The marker is done in dark blue and gold, the Reid High colors. It’s an impressive marker, and its dedication ceremony was memorable as well. Emcee for the event was Rev. Kenneth Alexander. Holmes was one of the key speakers and she thanked a long list of people and entities that had made the marker and its erection possible. Her kudos went out to the Belmont City Council, Public Works who installed the marker and did the landscaping around it, Parks and Recreation, assistant city manager, Woodlawn Funeral Service, Belmont Federal Savings and Loan, CJB Reid Foundation, and the Class of 1956.

“I call them my ‘change makers’,� Holmes said. “Without them, this never would have happened.� Other speakers included Rev. Calvin Lewers, James Currence, Oscar Reid, Minerva hardy, Mary Hardy Hart, Rev. Charles Reid, and Rev. Wilton McLean. Members of the Hood Memorial AME Zion Youth Choir provided music. Writer Julia Sykes, who along with Oscar Hand co-authored a history of the local African-American history, entitled “Footprints on the Rough Side of the Mountain, read excerpts from the book pertaining to R e i d School. “Closing Reid High was like a death in the family,� she said. Special guest speaker was Belm o n t Mayor Richard Boyce who reminded those in attendance that though the school being torn down was “one step back�, folks should carry on with the tradition of excellence it instilled by taking “two steps forward�. “Reid High was an anchor in this community,� said Boyce. “When Reid went down something was lost. But remember that Reid sent out students that made a difference in their community and the world.� Rev. Charles Reid also reminded everyone of the Reid tradition and pretty well summed up what the marker will mean to Belmont. “You can tear down the building,� Reid said. “But you cannot tear down what this school meant. It elevated the minds of many sons and daughters.�

“You can tear down the building,� Reid said. “But you cannot tear down what this school meant.�

â&#x2013;  MEDITATION Waistband Spirituality

Rev. Angela Pleasants First United Methodist Church, Mount Holly

I received a beautiful plant as a gift. I did not receive my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green thumb so I wanted to be intentional in making the plant flourish. I brought it home and placed it in the window for full sunlight. I put a CD to play classical

music hoping this would create a peaceful atmosphere for the plant. After a few weeks I noticed the plant began to wilt. I asked a friend what happened to the plant. I explained how I took great care to give it sunlight. I

played nice music for the plant. My friend asked a simple question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you water the plant?â&#x20AC;? Oops! Does your spiritual life often feel parched and wilted? Do you feel a great divide between you and the Lord? Although we cannot always base our relationship with the Lord on how we feel, there are times we are spiritually parched and feel a distance from the Lord. What causes this wilting of our soul? Often it is due to our lack of spiritual

discipline. In Jeremiah 13:1-7 God told Jeremiah to buy a linen waistband and hide it in the crevice of a rock. After many days God instructed Jeremiah to dig it up. Do you know what happened to that waistband? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then I went to the Euphrates and dug, and I took the waistband from the place where I had hidden it; and lo, the waistband was ruined, it was totally worthless.â&#x20AC;? Jeremiah 13:7 NASB. A waistband is worn close to the body. God intended for Israel to cling

to him, but instead they clung to the pagan gods. They neglected to worship and praise God. They did not turn to God in prayer. Therefore, they were parched and wilted. Do not let your life become spiritually parched and wilted. As a waistband clings to our waist so we should cling to God. Daily we should worship and praise God. Persevere in prayer, meditation, and study of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Word. Drink from the well of Living Water that will never run dry.

Vogel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a well-oiled machine.â&#x20AC;? The MHHS is housed in the former city hall building on Main Street and Vogel thanked the council for the use of the space. MHHS accomplishments Vogel cited included boxing up and cataloging archival materials, creating a replica barbershop in the museum, beginning the Mt. Island Mill display project, renovating the greeting room, creating a storage area, achieving 501c3 nonprofit status, recording oral histories of Mount Holly senior citizens, and being part of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Traveling Archivist Program (TAP). The North Carolina State Archives in the Department of Cultural Resources helps entities such as the MHHS through its Traveling Archivist Program (TAP), offering onsite

assistance to institutions that preserve North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and culture. Institutions chosen to participate in this program receive an onsite collections assessment, recommendations for managing and caring for the collections, and staff training and instruction. Cultural institutions eligible for this program include historical and genealogical societies, libraries, archives, museums, and historic houses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By safeguarding local special collections, we preserve a unique perspective of our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history,â&#x20AC;? said State Archivist Dick Lankford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal of TAP is to educate the staffs who take care of these collections and to encourage best practices in collection preservation and access.â&#x20AC;? Begun in 2009 as a pilot project with a federal grant from the National Historical Publications Records Commission, TAP has assisted more than 40 institutions in 32 counties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The TAP representative visited us and said we were light years ahead of where we should be,â&#x20AC;? said Vogel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were one of just a few in the state to be chosen as part of the program.â&#x20AC;? Things that Vogel declared were on the MHHS plate in the coming months and years included increasing membership and volunteerism, updating the environmental conditions inside the museum with UV filters as well as temperature and humidity controls, computerizing and photographing all archival materials, and creating more theme exhibits such as the one currently on display about the Mt. Island Manufacturing Co. Vogel also told the council that the MHHS intends to reach out and draw more people in from the surrounding area via distribution of promotional brochures and other PR devices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to tell the Mount Holly story so that everyone can participate, even if they are from out of town,â&#x20AC;? he said.

HUGO: aftermath not forgotten From page 1A showed downed power lines, the screen of the Belmont Drive In Theater lying in a twisted heap, homes with shingles torn away, the water tower at Parkdale Mills with its top missing, and the ticket booth at South Point High sans its roof. Hugo caused students at Belmont Abbey to be sent home. The roof of the Haid was torn off. The cross at the top of the Abbey bell tower was blown askew. Belmontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city manager at the time, Ken York, talked about the mess Hugo left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to the large mass of tree debris on the sides of the streets, it will take a massive effort to achieve total cleanup.â&#x20AC;? In McAdenville, Police Chief James Swanson had a near miss Hugo-style when a tree hit his patrol car as he was driving through town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was coming down Main Street at Mockingbird Lane when the rear end of the car was struck,â&#x20AC;? Swanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just pushed the car on across the street.â&#x20AC;? Swanson and others worked to clear limbs and debris from the roads in McAdenville, where the damage estimate from Hugo was $1.7 million. That included 300 homes with minor to heavy damage, the roof of the town hall being blown off, and the police department being flooded. An estimated 2,000 trees were down in McAdenville. In Mount Holly, Mayor Charles Black spoke after Hugo had departed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can survive,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had people offering to help in any way they can.â&#x20AC;? To house those whose homes were damaged by Hugo, the Mount Holly Jr. High gym was opened as an emergency shelter. Members of the Catawba Heights VFD went to work helping clear streets and yards of limbs and trees. Mount Holly police Sgt. Bob Johnson reported there were no injuries due to the storm. However, cars were damaged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did have some trees striking moving vehicles,â&#x20AC;? he said.

In Stanley, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s civil defense siren tower was broken and trees were devastated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I have never seen before and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see again,â&#x20AC;? said Police Chief Donnie Davis. Stanley police worked 16-18 hour shifts after the storm. Stanley Mayor Ned Cannon praised the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s citizens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of the people of Stanley,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came through the storm well.â&#x20AC;? Also in the aftermath of Hugo, the Red Cross set up mobile kitchens in the Belmont/Mount Holly area that served Hugo victims sandwiches, soup, and drinks. The kitchens were located at places such as Mount Holly Jr. High, Belmont First Presbyterian, and Stanley Rescue Squad. A photo in the Mount Holly News showed Red Cross volunteers from Michigan handing out vittles to folks. To get the electricity flowing again to the thousands of area homes that were without it, crews from Alabama Power and Light came up to help Duke Power workers. In appreciation, Allen Foreman in North Belmont hung an old quilt with the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank You Alabama Power and Lightâ&#x20AC;? painted on it from his front porch. People pulled together to help one another after Hugo. One person that the Banner profiled in this regard was Ann Auten of Catawba Heights who was helping her disabled neighbor, Shirley Robinson, cope with being without electricity by cooking meals for her on a camp stove. Another story talked about how Stanley postmaster Frank Guida and his colleagues at the post office were loaned a generator so they would have lights to sort the mail. These days, people still recall where they were and what they felt during and after Hugo. Though the experience was frightening, the way that people pulled together to weather the storm of the century was a testament to the strength of the communities in our area.

OLD MILL: getting new life

Photo Courtesy Millican Historical Museum

This archival picture shows the Chronicle Mill in its heyday. Developer John Church has bought the mill and six acres of land with it. Below: Workers from Applied Abatement Concepts in Kings Mountain have spent the last two weeks knocking modern bricks from the original window frames at the 1901 Chronicle Mill in Belmont. Developer John Church has bought and is hoping to refurbish the building. Photo by Alan Hodge

From page 1A Chronicle Mill machinery was sold and the once bustling factory sat empty and its fate in doubt- until Church, who lives in Cramerton, saw the potential of the building with its six acres of property and purchased them both. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After I bought the place my original intent was to tear it down and recycle the materials,â&#x20AC;? Church said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But once I began to peel back the layers and see the maple floors, yellow heart pine beams, and the original brickwork, I saw the beauty and potential of the building and changed my mind.â&#x20AC;? According to Church, he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reached a definite decision on just exactly what the final incarnation of the Chronicle Mill will be. Possibilities could be residential and or office space. A large warehouse out back could become a gym or performing arts venue. The fact that the property backs up to the Carolina Thread Trail is another plus. Getting the Chronicle Mill from where it is now, structurally and aesthetically, to Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision is going to take a lot of work, and money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a team of architects, engineers, contractors, and environmental people working on the project to see what we have and if it can be renovated,â&#x20AC;? said Church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also contacting potential investors.â&#x20AC;? Right now, Church has a crew from Kings Mountainbased Applied Abatement

Concepts knocking modern bricks out of the large, original 1901 window frames. In some places the bricks are four layers deep. Bill Beard is one of the workers tackling that job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We bust out the bottom layer and then get on a scaffold to knock out the ones at the top of the window frames,â&#x20AC;? Beard said. Another big job will be

removal of the truck-sized old air conditioning unit on the rear of the mill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll use a track hoe to pull it down,â&#x20AC;? said Beard. Other structural considerations that Church says will have to be examined soon include the roof and condition of the sprinkler system pipes. In the meantime, Church says he hopes to have

reached a decision in 90 days or so on the direction he wants to take the Chronicle Mill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people worked really hard in that mill,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big fan of Belmont and I want to develop this part of the community as a live, work, play destination.â&#x20AC;?

GASTON CHRISTIAN SCHOOLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first 2013 at home Cross Country track meet was an attendance success as schools from across the county gathered to test their metal. Energy and anticipation filled the air as girls from both middle schools and high schools waited to approach the starting line. The runners started the event with a 3-K run, followed by a 5-K run for the high school men, and, a 5-K by the women to close the event. The male runner in red is William Anthony, a junior from Gaston Christian. The Gaston Christian girl runners in red are, Clara Ellington, Savannah Witt, and Andie Ervay.

Red Raiders smother Q Foundation 49-6 By John Wilson

When the Red Raiders lined up Friday night to face the Q Foundation Academy Fighting Falcons the game took on a surreal atmosphere. First off Big Red was facing off against a school that almost appeared to be named after a characters from a James Bond film. In another Bond moment the coaching staff from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill flew into the Red Raiders practice field by helicopter to check out some of South Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not every day a coach flies in to watch your team,â&#x20AC;? head coach Mickey Lineberger said.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the program. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the school.â&#x20AC;? One of the players being scouted is safety Tanner Muse. Muse is being courted by a number of big programs ranging from UNC to Clemson to Virginia to name but a few. Another Red Raider getting a look by the Tarheels is fullback Tyler Bray. Coach Lineberger is proud of Muse, Bray, and all of his players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tanner is a real playmaker,â&#x20AC;? Lineberger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tyler is one of the best football players I have been around in 37 years. This also gave some of or other players a chance to be seen.â&#x20AC;? With all the excitement, coach Lineberger and his staff kept the Red Raiders focused. On the field the Raiders dominated on all fronts. South Point came away from the game with a 49-6 victory and a 4-0 start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a good night,â&#x20AC;? Lineberger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were clicking. We ran well. We threw well.â&#x20AC;? The Red Raiders struck first with Muse returning a punt 55 yards for the first South Point points. That special-teams score started the Red

Raiders on an explosive 21-point 1st quarter. Also scoring early for South Point were quarterback Juquan Brooks and fullback Tyler Bray. Brooks scored on a 54-yard sprint and Bray punched it in from two yards out. Brooks had a solid game. He ran for 108 yards on eight carries. He also ran for two scores. South Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workhorse fullback Bray had only 42 rushing yards on the night. But he only got six carries. He walked away with an impressive seven yards per carry average. Also having a solid night for the Red Raiders was wing back Diontrea King. King garnered two touchdowns and 67 yards on the ground. King is working his way into being a legitimate scoring threat. The Red Raiders passing game was limited but highly effective. Brooks had a good night throwing the ball. He went 3-3 for 77 yards. The top receiver for South Point was Bray. Bray pulled down two passes and gained 52 yards. Last week against Shelby the South Point DBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were burned early. Coach Lineberger alluded to the need to make some defensive adjustments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played some good D,â&#x20AC;? Lineberger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We filled some holes and straighten things up.â&#x20AC;? It was obvious that the adjustments worked because the Q Foundation didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a good night on offense. How could they with the Red Raiders giving up only 128 yards of total offense? The Fighting Falcons only got 102 yards in the air. They were also picked off twice by the Red Raidersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;D.â&#x20AC;? Lineberger had a lot of respect for the Q team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played with class,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played hard.â&#x20AC;? Next up for South Point is a road trip to Asheville to face the A.C Reynolds Rockets.

Warriors fall to Linconton 27-10 By John Wilson

In a game riddled with turnovers and penalties the East Gaston Warriors missed an opportunity to nab their first victory by falling to the Linconton Wolves 2710. The Warriors are now 03. It was a rough night for the visiting Warriors. The Lincolnton crowd kept the tempo up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a great atmosphere

to play in, Lincolnton has a lot of tradition,â&#x20AC;? head coach Sean Joyce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had a great team, great fans, great crowd.â&#x20AC;? Going into the half the Warriors still had a shot at getting back in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played pretty well defensively,â&#x20AC;? Joyce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played well early. Well enough to be in it. It was 14-8 at the half.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the penalties and turnovers started to take

their toll. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got killed with See WARRIORS, 9A

Abbey women beat Clayton State The Belmont Abbey womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team scored once in each half and held off a late Clayton State goal to earn a 2-1 win over the Lakers on Sept. 15 in a match played in Savannah, Georgia on the campus of Armstrong Atlantic State. The win ups the Abbeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record to 3-1-0, while Clayton State drops to 1-3-1. Simone Melvin scored in the 29th minute and Amanda Steiner added the game winner in the 71st minute. Clayton State cut the lead to 2-1 with a goal in the 82nd minute, but the Abbey held on for the win. Clayton State outshot the Crusaders 2112, but it was the Crusaders who took advantage of their opportunities. Melvin put the Abbey ahead at the 28:56 mark as she headed home a short corner kick off the foot of Theresa Mateo for her first goal of the year. That was all of the scoring in the first

Nine minutes later the Lakers pulled one back as Alicia Robinson fed Jameela Bryant with a through ball, and her shot beat Hannah Kohls for her first goal of the year. That was all of the scoring, however, as the Abbey earned its third result in four tries. The Crusaders attempted eight corner kicks while Clayton State produced four. Kohls made six saves, four in the second half.

WARRIORS: fall to Linconton 27-10 From page 8A penalties,â&#x20AC;? Joyce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you how many times it was but we gave them several yards jumping off sides or late hits.â&#x20AC;? East Gaston was able to stay competitive despite coughing the ball up six times to the Wolves. The East Gaston offense put up a combined 218 yards in total offense. Fullback Dontavis Walker compiled 48 yards on 12 carries. Warrior QB Austin Woods had 11 carries for 40 yards. East Gaston ended the night with 82 yards on the ground. The Warriors passing game fared much better than the ground attack did. In the first quarter Woods hit Bailey Crane on a 50 yard bomb to put the first Warrior points on the board. Crane ended the night with 96 yards off of three grabs for East Gaston. Two East Gaston quarterbacks saw action against the Wolves. When starting quarterback Austin Woods had to leave the game due to an injury, 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 2â&#x20AC;? sophomore Alex Adams was pressed into service. The injury couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have come at a worse time for East Gaston. The Warriors were already thin at QB with Tyler Price getting injured earlier in the year. Woods and Adams combined for

136 yards on the day. Adams proved to be a fairly effective quarterback. In his first significant varsity action the sophomore went 5 for 13 with a pick. He tossed for 76 yards. Woods went 2 for 4 with 60 yards and the score to Crane. The East Gaston defense tried to keep the Warriors in the game. Lincolnton had 236 yards of combined offense. The half time score reflected how close the game was early on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played well enough.â&#x20AC;? Joyce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played hard. But not well enough to win.â&#x20AC;? The Warriors defense again struggled to stop their opponents running game. The Wolves ran for 156 yards on the night. In the passing department East Gaston did better. The Warriors were able to limit Lincolnton to only 57 yards through the air. The Wolves did toss one TD pass. But the Warriors also napped an interception. This week will be a good chance for the Warriors to regroup and get a victory. They travel to Cherryville to take on the struggling 0-4 Ironmen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our spirits are high,â&#x20AC;? Joyce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a good game plan.â&#x20AC;?

South Point whips Stuart Cramer JV Ryland Etherton rushed for four touchdowns and three two-point conversions as South Point ran away with a 43-0 road victory Thursday against Stuart Cramer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have a lot of work to do to improve,â&#x20AC;? said SC coach Ben McMillan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made a lot of mistakes Thursday night and you have to play mistake free football if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be successful, especially when playing a good team like South Point.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x2013;  LIFESTYLES CF - new funds The Board of Directors of The Community Foundation of Gaston County, Inc., has voted to establish three new unrestricted funds at the Community Foundation of Gaston County, Inc. as recommended by the Grants Committee. The action was taken to further the mission of the Foundation which is to be the leader of philanthropic giving by connecting donors with community needs to enhance the lives of present and future generations. The funds will be named: The Belmont Community Impact Fund, the Cherryville Community Impact Fund and the Mount Holly Community Impact Fund. Each impact fund would essentially function as an unrestricted fund but with seven people from each named community serving as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;boardâ&#x20AC;? of the community impact fund. These people would also be those who are likely to have a clear focus on their particular community and an understanding that allows creative visionary leadership. Like all unrestricted funds held by the Community Foundation, grants out of the impact funds must be made to qualified 501(c)(3) charitable institutions and ultimately approved by the Board of the Community Foundation. Impact funds could coordinate grants with each other or other financial resources, but would be expected to be directed towards projects having an impact in the communities for which the funds are named â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ie, in Belmont, Cherryville, and Mount Holly. Dr. Richard Rankin, President of the Board said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel this action sends a strong message to all members of the Gaston County community that the Community Foundation is inclusive and has a mission directed towards all local areas within the county.â&#x20AC;? Ernest Sumner, Executive Director further expanded on the concept of the community funds, â&#x20AC;&#x153; we hope the success of these funds as a tool to expand the work of the Foundation will include other municipalities in our county in the future.â&#x20AC;? To celebrate the creation of the Belmont,

Cherryville and Mount Holly Community Impact Funds the Community Foundation of Gaston County will host an event called the Better Gaston Bash on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at Gaston County Club.

Online lake info Recognizing that easy access to lake level information is critical during high water conditions, Duke Energy has made its lake information â&#x20AC;&#x153;smart phone-friendlyâ&#x20AC;? in time for the peak of hurricane season. The site can be accessed on a smart phone at The default menu shows an option for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lakes and Recreation.â&#x20AC;? Duke Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lake information web pages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which include recreational water release schedules, lake levels and alerts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; attract thousands of hits each month. The number rises steadily when heavy rainfall causes high water conditions at the lakes managed by the company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve provided this information for years, knowing how important it is to people who live near the lakes and to those who use them for recreation,â&#x20AC;? said Duke Energy spokesperson Lisa Hoffmann. Duke Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lake management teams are always prepared for severe weather. Lakeside residents are encouraged to be prepared as well by monitoring weather forecasts and checking for lake level alerts when heavy rainfall is predicted. In addition to accessing the new mobile-enabled website, the public also can check realtime lake levels and special updates, 24 hours a day, at, and on Duke Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lake information phone line at 800-829-5253.

Levine Museum historian to speak to BHS Dr. Tom Hanchett, staff historian at Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte, will visit Belmont September 19 and give a talk about â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Mills and the Music,â&#x20AC;? illustrated with images and vintage recordings. The event will take place in the Belmont First Baptist Church Fellowship Room at 7pm. From the late 1920s til the early 1940s, Charlotte was busier than Nashville as a center for country music and gospel recording. The textile mills that hummed across Gaston County and the surrounding Piedmont region pulled families off the farms and out of the mountains. With pay jingling in millworkers pockets on Saturday night, there was money for musicians to play dances and concerts. Bill and Charlie Monroe came from Kentucky to perform on pioneering radio station WBT, and in 1936 RCA Victor captured them on disc â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the beginnings of â&#x20AC;&#x153;bluegrassâ&#x20AC;? music. The legendary Carter family recorded twice in Charlotte, including the last sessions with the original trio of Sara, A.P. and Mother Maybelle.

they have evolved over the decades through a visual and hands-on experience. On Saturday, Sept. 21 from 1-2pm, there will be a lecture entitled Laughing with My Three Favorite Presidents, by Rick Dominy. One of the things Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan had in common was that they all had a great sense of humor. One writer said that if he was going to build a Mt. Rushmore of presidential humor, these were the three presidents he would include. By looking at stories these men either told about themselves or that others told about them, the audience will find much that will make them laugh.

Local folks got in front of the mic, as well. The WBT Briarhoppers featured Whitey and Hogan, millhands from the Firestone Mill in Gastonia. In fact thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a recent CD reissuing Dr. Tom Hanchett performances entirely by area textile workers, entitled Gastonia Gallop. Dr. Tom Hanchett is staff historian at Levine Museum of the New South in uptown Charlotte. Thanks in part to his work, the Museum has won three national exhibition awards in the past decade, and has been honored at the White House. You can explore Hanchettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writings on Southern history and culture on his website,, including an extensive section on this areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;roots musicâ&#x20AC;? heritage.

â&#x2013;  LIFESTYLES 4th Annual SECU Supports the Troops campaign Thanks to the continued generosity of its members and North Carolina communities, State Employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Credit Union (SECU) is pleased to announce plans for its 4th annual SECU Supports the Troops campaign, which will kick off Sept. 16 and run through Oct. 31. All 250 statewide branches, including the one in Belmont at 7225 Wilkinson Blvd., will collect â&#x20AC;&#x153;wish listâ&#x20AC;? items to provide holiday care packages for North Carolina deployed soldiers. As with previous campaigns, SECUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to pack 5,000 gift boxes. The boxes will include travel sized toiletries, first aid items and snacks, along with one-of-a-kind thank you cards and letters expressing words of encouragement from local school children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; always a big hit with the soldiers. In addition to collecting items, SECU will accept monetary donations to assist with shipping costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This campaign is a wonderful way to show our support for North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deployed soldiers and their families,â&#x20AC;? comments Leigh Brady, SECU Executive Vice President of Organizational Development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This project certainly hits home with SECU, as our credit union serves and employs members of the North Carolina National Guard and Reserves. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reflection of the genuine caring efforts and generosity of SECU staff, members and community supporters who want these local soldiers to know they make a difference.â&#x20AC;?

Five senior portfolios per teacher are allowed. Gold Key awarded pieces
