Cherryville mayoral race pits incumbent against first-time challenger H.L. Beam; Jeff Cash both have the City’s interests at heart but only one can be mayor by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor michael@cfmedia.info

The 2021 municipal mayoral election slated for Tuesday, Nov. 2, comes down to a race between two men who have not only worked together for many years, but who – by many accounts –

MAYOR H.L. BEAM, III

JEFF CASH City Manager and Fire Chief

both love this town and have its best interests at heart. According to an August 2021 Eagle article, both men filed to run for the office this past July, as did two the two City Council members who faced no opposition. The two Council members are Ward 3 Council member and incumbent, Mrs. Jill Parker-Puett, and Ward 1 Council member and incumbent, Mr. Gary W. Freeman. As was noted in the Eagle article, all four individuals live in the City limits of Cherryville.

The Eagle sent both Mr. Beam and Mr. Cash some questions regarding the upcoming election and they responded accordingly. The incumbent, Mr. Beam, said this will be, if elected, his fifth term in office (he was originally elected in 2013). “I ran against two opponents in 2013, (Mrs.) Paulette Gibson and (Mr.) Harvey Lee Patterson and in 2019 my opponent was (Mr.) Daniel Ware,“ Mayor Beam said. Mr. Cash said, “This will

be my first endeavor at a municipal elected position.” He has served (and is still serving) as the City’s Fire Chief for 43-plus years and has served, and is currently serving, as City Manager. Mayor Beam said his “… number one concern is the wasteful and unnecessary spending of taxpayer money that I see in our City budget. I want to see the new infrastructure completed and our downtown revitalization finished. See RACE, Page 5

Ground broken on Oct. 20 for new CaroMont Urgent Care Cherryville facility slated to open in summer of 2022 by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor michael@cfmedia.info

City of Cherryville and CaroMont Health officials, along with other county government and health dignitaries, came together last Wednesday, Oct. 20, to break ground on a new urgent care facility that is slated to open

in the summer of 2022. The groundbreaking ceremony for the planned CaroMont Family Medicine & CaroMont Urgent Care in Cherryville took place at 10 a.m., at 210 N. Cherry Street. The property was the former home of a law office and next door, a restaurant that had closed. Both buildings were used in fire training exercises and reduced to ash and rubble, then cleared to make way for the planned Urgent Care facility. According to a fact sheet

provided by CaroMont Family Medicine and CaroMont Urgent Care, CaroMont Family Medicine – Cherryville will relocate to a new facility in the summer 2022 and continue to offer a full range of family medicine and primary care services at the new facility. That care includes access to 11 exam rooms, three (3) procedure rooms for family medicine, two (2) urgent care rooms, onsite X-ray and laboratory See CAROMOUNT, Page 2

Gaston Co. Museum has new home for its artifacts collection By Alan Hodge alan@cfmedia.info

The Gaston County Museum on the historic square in beautiful downtown Dallas is one of our region’s most popular places for folks to get a look at area exhibits and artifacts going back literally hundreds of years. However, a faulty HVAC system in the Hoffman Hotel where the museum is located put a lot of those priceless treasures at risk of destruction by mold and when that fact was revealed, museum

located at 1904 Dallas-Cherryville Highway (about a mile from the museum) is open to the public. The collections are owned by the Gaston See MUSEUM, Page 7

Cherryville High School senior Landrie Wofford and a number of her classmates and fellow “Kindness Club” members recently brought a great message to a couple of local Cherryville schools – “Say NO to bullying!” Ms. Wofford said they created posters for W.B. Beam Intermediate School, noting that each poster has a unique message, such as, “One kind word can change someone’s entire day.” Landrie organized the project a year or so ago, she said, along with then-CHS senior Ben Hayes, and a handful of others at the high school. In addition to taking the posters to WBBI, Ms. Wofford said they also had “World Unity Day/Say No to Bullying Day – Wear Orange”. “The positive school poster project was started back in 2019 and was purchased from a generous grant from Walmart, Carolina Federal Credit Union, and donations other community members as well as money raised from fundraisers due

Mrs. Brown’s Cherryville Elementary School class proudly wear their orange colors to support anti-bullying in schools or anywhere, for that matter! to the efforts of the Kindness Club in 2020” noted Landrie. “Due to the cost of the posters, there are three phases – we are on Phase Two.” Kindness Club members from 2020 helped raise funds through fundraisers, including a “Stand Up for Others” tee-shirt that helped purchase these posters at Beam Intermediate and Cherryville Elementary, Wofford said. She continued, “The idea for the posters was set from the initial goal of the Kindness Club when I first formed the club with Ben (Hayes

– currently a sophomore at Appalachian State University). We set goals to hang these positive posters in the school’s bathrooms. Also, we set weekly goals to send out positive messages on social media and throughout the community (on cars, mail, “to go” food containers, etc.).” The plan was to work as a club to achieve monthly kindness activities that would benefit our community and encourage others to spread kindness, noted Landrie, who added, “The co-sponsor team See KINDNESS, Page 9

It is something we have longed to have for many, many yearsand it has finally come to pass! I am glad we are getting to partner with CaroMont Health.” Cherryville City Manager and Fire Chief Jeff Cash, who is also the ViceChair of the CaroMont Health Systems Board of Directors, spoke, noting, “As was said earlier, Caro-

Mont will still have an office uptown and they will offer urgent care as well. We want to say a word of thanks to President and CEO of CaroMont Health, Mr. Chris Peek, to all who came out today to help us in this groundbreaking, and to all who will be involved in the construction of this facility.” Mr. Cash also noted the facility will more than just a doctor’s office, it will be a facility that offers, “…truly exceptional care. So, on behalf of our board of directors we want to express our sincere appreciation for helping

us celebrate this event.” Cash continued, referencing his memory of what used to called “Big Days” in Cherryville, and likening this event to just such a day, he continued the CaroMont and City officials as well as the crowd, “You all drive us forward into the future. This is a big day for Cherryville!” As per the media release, CaroMont Family Medicine in Cherryville is welcoming new patients.

LOOK! STOP! PLEASE EXECUTE AND COMPLETE THIS EXPERIMENT! Close your eyes for a few minutes and clear your minds of all thought. Go back in your minds eight years ago and glimpse the following picture with closed eyes and a vivid, picturesque mind. Two uniformed city workers standing on a corner reading a newspaper, one has his son by his side. Headlines read, “Newly-elected Mayor Beam to make impact statements in Federal Court in Charlotte at the sentencing of two city employees for embezzlements of city funds.” On the same front page, a headline reads “Corruption uncovered in Cherryville Police Department.” A citizen walks up to one of the men and says something, the small son looks up at his dad with tears in his eyes and says, “Daddy, did that guy just call you a thief.” A city garbage truck rolls by with no decals on it and bald tires on the wheels. The city streets are full of potholes and are in need of repairs. Many empty buildings are also in need of repairs, with concrete decaying on the sidewalks below the broken windows above, and doors barely still hanging at the entrances. Across the town, grass is growing through the asphalt at the unkempt and empty parking lot where Carolina Freight used to stand. Former textile mills are vacant and are on the verge of being condemned. City workers are wondering if they will receive a paycheck for the past week, as funds may not be available to pay all employees due to past embezzlements of over $500,000. City morale is at its lowest point and the city is experiencing its darkest chapter. One man stands staunch and alone and declares: “I will put: T-Transparency, L-Leadership, and C-Commitment back into our city’s politics. I love this city and will not let it continue to suffer. My pledge to our citizens is to move this city toward a positive direction and restore trust and integrity through these virtues.”

OK – LET’S OPEN OUR EYES AND FAST FORWARD TO THE PRESENT! Look around and see if you are better off today. We see a city with construction going on everywhere. Millions of dollars are being poured into downtown revitalization. New sewer and water lines are going into the ground. Sure, there is disruption to some degree, but the reward will be a new look to our city with new businesses, new lighting, new sidewalks, new roads without ugly power

lines draped across the streets. A vibrant, eclectic, historic downtown district now stands! A new city Sanitation truck, complete with a new, bright city logo, rolls by with new tires and a clean look, paid for in cash by the city council’s bold strategic plan and budget. New police cars are ever-present and a new fire truck sits in the bay at the city’s picturesque fire station. Beautiful, newly planted Cherry trees are seen throughout the city and in huge numbers. The old Carolina Freight lot is busy with trucks rolling in and out from the refurbished docks and offices. Modern Polymers has added on a large new building beside the old one; Carolina Federal Credit Union has expanded as well. New wings have been added at Peak Resources and Carolina Care Center. Houser Drug has moved from the corner on Main Street to a larger, newer building down the street. People are sitting and eating at tables outside Home Folks Café that has a newly-lit sign at its location and also at Butter Me Up across the street, a new business with new food choices. We see a new KFC, Taco Bell and Burger King on Hwy. 150 East. We see highway improvements and new passing lane construction on 279. When completed, we will have all new resurfacing from Cherryville to Dallas on this new, pristine highway. New and needed housing projects are being evaluated by city council for at least three locations throughout our beautiful city. We see the same Mayor Beam standing staunch and resolute across from McDonald’s on the vacant lot where a new CaroMont Family Medicine and Urgent Care will soon be constructed. He is reminiscing about a letter he received from the State Treasurer’s Department in August 2014 congratulating him on how fast he and the council have improved the city’s financial standing in just one year. They were rewarded and commended for such an unprecedented turnaround in the city’s financial success. He is reiterating how our city’s electrical rates have declined over the past few years and pledges to lobby for even bigger reductions in these rates for the future. So… ask yourself: are you better off now over these past eight years under Mayor Beam’s leadership? City morale, honesty, and integrity have been restored to our government. The city has more funds and resources than ever before. Under his guidance from council and his governance the answer to this question is unequivocally YES! Mayor Beam respectfully asks Cherryville voters to grant him two more years to continue his positive direction for this great city – OUR great city. He wants to continue to lead us forward and is devoted and committed to positive change for our city.

VOTE H.L. BEAM for MAYOR on November 2nd and GIVE him your support and endorsement. He will not let you down, that is his promise and pledge to Cherryville’s citizens. Paid for by Committee To Elect H.L. Beam, III Mayor

Cherryville Police bring drug charges against two On Sept. 28, Cherryville Police Capt. Brian Doolittle said their officers, along with officers from the N.C. Probation and Parole Office conducted a search at 301 Brown Street. As a result of the search, numerous types of prescription pills and drug

paraphernalia were seized, along with over $6,000 in currency. Two suspects, identified by police as Desmond Tyrell Izard, 22, of 301 Brown St., Cherryville, and Shane Rashon Faw, 33, of 123 Santa Circle, Gastonia, were arrested and charged

accordingly. Mr. Izard was placed under a $20,000 secured bond and Mr. Faw was placed under a $10,000 secured bond. No further information is available at this time.

CLT’s “Usher”: A totally teen comedy The works of Edgar Allan Poe are bone-chilling, dark, depressing – nevermore, quoth the raven! This skillful Cherryville Little Theatre adaptation takes a grand mix of Poe’s writing and characters and weaves them together into a teen-savvy comedy loosely based on “The Fall of the House of Usher” but with more laughs and a much brighter ending. Here’s the plot: After the bus breaks down on a dark and stormy night, a bunch of high school students on a field trip are forced to spend the night in the spooky house of Usher.

But they’re not alone! The spirits of Usher ancestors haunt the halls, cursed to stay trapped in the house forever, unless someone helps the last surviving Usher find the will to truly live life. Along with a healthy dose of entertaining teen drama, “Usher” touches on some weighty issues that haunt the nightmares of most teens – isolation, loneliness, suicide, and peer pressure. But lighten up, it’s a comedy after all! With characters drawn from classics such as “The Cask of Amontillado”,

“The Tell-Tale Heart”, “Annabel Lee”, and some lesser-known works, there are countless winks, nudges, and nods to the Master of Horror. The House of Usher doesn’t fall at the end in this show, but “Usher” will bring down yours! Performances are as follows: Friday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 30, at 2 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 31. at 3 p.m. General Admission tickets are available at the door for $5.

Cherryville’s Village Garden Club makes Heritage Park bloom with the seasons by STEVE PANTON Cherryville Chamber of Commerce

Cherryville’s Heritage Park blooms with the seasons thanks to the Village Garden Club. In the spring, the club planted hundreds of red and white petunias to adorn the park’s courtyard. And, just as they did last year, this Christmas the club will decorate the historic buildings with authentic period decorations. “We’re thrilled with the beautiful decorations,” said David Day, Cherryville’s Downtown Director. “They’ve made a huge difference in how the park looks.” The Heritage Park is but one beautification project that the club has taken on. Most recently, the club helped refurbish the city’s large Christmas wreaths which will once again grace downtown light poles this holiday season. Said club president, Doris Huss, “We choose projects that promote beautification and civic pride.” Founded in 1952, the club has been home to generations of Cherryville’s most accomplished gardeners.

RACE From Page 1 “My platform is the same as my first year of seeking the role of Mayor: put T-Transparency L-Leadership and C-Commitment in our city staff and city politics. I want to see new housing and businesses locate in our city. I want to continue to provide excellent police and fire protection and provide a school system that leads in education within our county. “My promise is to continue to lower electrical rates and be competitive on taxes. This can all be done with the resources that our city is fortunate to have at its disposal.” City Manager Cash said his platform “…is to provide the citizens of Cherryville with exceptional customer service and programs at the lowest cost possible. For Cherryville’s strategic vision…it is time for a change!” He enumerated, by using “bullet points”, the following 10 things he wants to accomplish, if elected as Mayor: Continue the focus on Main Street revitalization; continue the strategic plan-driven infrastructure upgrades; commission a recreational feasibility and needs assessment for the City of Cherryville; place a higher emphasis on economic development; be the City of Cherryville, the citizens, and our staff’s #1 advocate; work with other agencies, organizations,

Cadet Mauney of Cherryville, Citadel Class of 2022, wears the ring CHARLESTON, SC – Sara Mauney of Cherryville, joins the thousands of alumni who proudly wear The Citadel class ring. More than 550 cadets, active duty and veteran students from the Class of 2022 were celebrated during the Ring Presentation Ceremony on Friday, Oct. 1, after marching across Summerall Field, directly into Summerall Chapel, where the rings were presented. “The presentation of the rings represents our commitment to The Citadel and our accomplishments as a class,” said Cadet Kathryn Christmas, Regimental Commander of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. “The Class of 2022 has been waiting patiently for this day. We will wear them proudly.” One of the very first acts the cadets performed after receiving their rings was to

A Citadel cadet puts on his class ring for the first time during the Ring Presentation Ceremony on Friday, Oct. 1. (photo provided) salute The Citadel War Memorial – marching by in rows of four – as they left the Chapel. “Ring Presentation is something we have all dreamed about from our early days as knobs. Then, it seemed like an eternity away – yet here we are, getting to join the brother and sisterhood of those who wear the ring,” said Cadet Grayson Gasque, Dep-

uty Regimental Commander of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. “For the Class of ’22, our rings symbolize the culmination of our efforts here at The Citadel and the efforts of those who helped us along the way. From this day forward, we have the privilege and responsibility of wearing the Band of Gold.”S

A Dreadful Place Cherryville Area (4th & Final Part of “Prepared for Eternity” Series)

There is a place that most people don’t enjoy talking about, yet Jesus talked about this place 70 times and it’s mentioned in the New Testament 162 times. It is a place absent of love, peace, and joy, and filled with never-ending, fiery torment, darkness, DANYALE PATTERSON and pain. According to Matthew 25:41, it was created for the devil and his crew. This dreadful place is called “Hell”. Despite the horrors of hell, many people choose to go there of their own free will. Jesus states in Matthew 7:13 (NLT), “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.” Which Way Are You Headed? Attending a church doesn’t make you a disciple of Jesus, no more than sitting in a car garage would make you a vehicle. By the way, I am not saying don’t go to a local church. The point here is that God desires a dedicated heart toward him. He is not impressed with religious activities that are missing an obedient and yielded life. In Luke 6:46 (NLT) Jesus asks, “So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say?” Ponder on the following questions to help you identify if you are headed in the right direction: Do you have a surrendered heart to Jesus Christ that believes and strives to obey the Bible? Do you have godly sorrow for your mistakes, repent of your sins, and yield to God’s will even when it’s difficult? Do you strive to love God with everything within you? The Great Throne According to Revelation 20:11-15, one day everyone will stand before God and be judged. When God opens up the movie curtains of your life and reveals every unholy or disobedient thought, word, and action of your life, it will be too late to escape the penalty for sin. But there is hope! You can become born again right now through repenting of your sins, believing in the sacrificial offering of Christ (his death, burial, and resurrection), and receiving him as Lord and Savior. Romans 6:23 (ESV) says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Allow him to take the reins of your life. You won’t regret it, and you will be prepared for eternity! PRAY THIS PRAYER: “Father I praise you as the righteous judge and lawgiver. I could never stand before you on my own merit. I am sin-infected and sin-contaminated. My best efforts are like grease-stained rags. Without Jesus, I am headed in the wrong direction. Please, forgive me of my sins and hidden faults. Search my heart and take away anything that stands between you and me. Thank you for sending Jesus to take the penalty of sin for me. I choose to surrender to Christ. I believe and receive Jesus as my Savior and Lord. I ask you to fill me with the Holy Spirit. I want to be with you basking in your love and Presence, now and throughout eternity. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.”

Museum assistant director Alexandrea Pizza explains in detail what happened. “The museum’s main location is at 131 W Main St and is inside the Historic Hoffman Hotel, built in 1852,” she said. “The collections were previously stored inside the early 1900’s addition to the hotel which was once the Hoffman Store. The walls are made of plaster and brick and so were very porous and drawn to moisture build up—a dangerous combination for historic artifacts. Although the former collections space was temperature and humidity controlled, it was much more difficult to keep the environment stable, hence the mold outbreak after the air conditioning went out for 48 hours in the summer of 2018.” The new home for the collection is a sturdy red brick structure owned by Gaston County. It was formerly the Mary Ellen Nelson Center, an education center for children. The portion where the museum archives are now located was totally renovated and has

state of the art security and environmental controls. “We are so thankful to have this new storage location and the ability to serve the public in a more direct way by sharing the art and history of Gaston County with the community,” Pizza said. So, what’s available for the public to come see? To name just a few of the vast amount of items- the collection includes pottery done by local artists, a huge number of vintage photos, painted portraits of local leaders, family documents, handwoven baskets, swords, textile related items, hats, vintage clothing, farm equipment, quilts, maps, Bibles, books, letters, and much, much more. The “stuff” fills up five temperature and humidity controlled rooms. How does one go about seeing the archives? Well, it’s not like a library where you can just go in and browse around. “People who want to see items need to contact us and make an appointment,” Pizza said. “That also helps us know in advance what we need to collect and have ready for them.” Once a visitor arrives, they will be seated in a special viewing room with a nice table to put the materials on.

Ironmen gridiron squad gets mauled by Bulldogs 47-0 Overmatched CHS men played hard; still wasn’t enough to counter the determined ‘Dogs by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor michael@cfmedia.info

A scrappy Tim Pruitt and Company-led Ironmen gridiron squad met a very determined Burns Bulldogs team last Friday. Oct. 22, at Rudisill Stadium. After a tough battle by our team, fighting until game’s end; after the proverbial smoke had cleared, CHS got mauled 47-0. Burns got on the board first, 6-0 (2-point conversion failed) in the first quarter with 7:57 on the clock, the turned right around after Cherryville’s Cain Cash was called upon to punt, gets another TD, making it 12-0, with 4:59 on the clock. Again, the ‘Dogs attempted to get two extra points; it was a ‘fail’. For the Ironmen, the first quarter was a gain a yard or two; lose a yard or more, back-and-forth situation as a larger, speedier Bulldogs crew started early on harassing Ironmen QB Chase Miller and his receivers and backfield. In second quarter play it was business as usual for the Bulldogs as they tacked on another TD, with 6:13 on the clock. Again, their attempt at a 2-point conversion was ineffectual, and the score was 18-0. The Ironmen seemed to gain-

ing some momentum in this quarter as Chase Miller gained about six yards rushing and Carter Spangler rushed for 12 yards. Miller called his own number and zipped downfield through some bewildered Bulldog defensemen, picking up 13 additional yards for the Ironmen. He then turned around and hit Mason Grindstaff for four yards in the air. Kadin Beaver also caught a Miller pass, albeit for just a yard. At this point in the first half, the Ironmen got as close to getting any points on the board as they were going to get that night as they lined up for a Henry Gil field goal attempt. The ball however went wide to the right of the uprights and that was that. Burns got the ball back and promptly turned the possession into yet another TD, with 2:10 on the clock. This time practice made perfect as they succeeded in getting the 2-point conversion jammed into the end zone. When CHS got the ball back as time in the first half was winding down, Landon Hahn returned the Bulldogs kick-off for 15 yards. However, due to Ironmen loss of yards on a couple of carries, Cash got set to punt the pigskin away. Just as he did, a Burns player blocked the punt and turned that into another Burns TD. They kicked the PAT and the score moved up to 33-0. After the first half of play, the Ironmen tallied only 41 yards on the ground. As play resumed in the

second half, Burns scored again in this third quarter with 6:31 on the clock. It was 40-0, with their PAT being good. The Ironmen got the ball but a Miller pass was intercepted, resulting in a TD by Burns with 1:14 on the clock. With the PAT good, Burns was now up 47-0, and the clock was allowed to run non-stop. A bright spot for CHS in this quarter was Ironman Kam Bolin rushing for 27 yards. The Ironmen began the fourth quarter trying to get some momentum, but had to eventually punt the ball away again. No further scoring took place and the game ended with Burns winning the game, 47-0. With loss of yards by the Ironmen in the air and on the ground, their total yardage on the night for the CHS men was 27 yards; 25 on the ground and 2 in the air. The Ironmen had three penalties for 25 yards compared to the Bulldogs’ staggering 160-plus yards in penalties on the night. Quarterback Chase Miller threw seven passes and completed two of them. The Ironmen’s last regular season game is an away game at Bessemer City on Friday, Oct. 29. The outcome of that game will determine the Ironmen’s chance of getting a home field advantage in the playoffs, should they win. (Additional information by Susan L. Powell and Danny Eaker)

Lady Wolverines softball roundup

Coach Leigh Kiser took her Lady Ironmen on the road last Tuesday (Oct. 19) for the semifinals of the conference tournament at host Highland Tech. Her team drew co-first place leader East Gaston. Kiser said her team played its most complete match of the year but fell short, losing the match 3-1. Scores were 25-21 (EG), 25-16 (EG), 28-26 (CHS), and 25-10 (EG). Coach Kiser said the ladies had a great opportunity in Game One to gain an early edge, but couldn’t quite pull it out. Said Kiser, “I’m extremely proud of how we played. Now we turn our attention to the state playoffs. It will be the first time we’ve made the state playoffs in five years, so we are excited.” For the CHS ladies, Rileigh Kiser had 25 assists, 2 aces and 5 digs. Addie Eaker, with 8 kills and Terayha Bess with 11 kills, led the offense. Taylor Digh led the offense with 10 digs. Number 24-seed Cherryville’s opponent for

Round One of the state playoffs, which was to have begun on Saturday, Oct 23, at 3 p.m., was the ninthseeded Lady Elks of Elkin High School. Due to an unforeseen emergency situa-

tion at Elkin that game had to be rescheduled for Monday, Oct. 25. The Lady Ironmen’s record is currently 12-13. (Additional stats/info: Brian Kiser)

KINDNESS From Page 1 also committed to following the guidelines for the National Anti-Bullying Association.” As for the wearing of orange, Wofford said October 20, 2021, the National Day for Unity, was chosen and the purpose was to make a visible stand against bullying by encouraging students to wear orange. “Orange is the official color for anti-bullying and Cherryville schools proudly made a visible stand to wear orange to stand up for others!” she said. CHS students painted the school’s Spirit Rock orange, shared positive social media messages, and participated in acts of kindness activities for random students. Also, this week, Cherryville Elementary students colored a “Kindness Matters” coloring sheet as a reminder to be kind to one another. Landrie said she volunteers at the school each week to learn from guidance counselor, Mrs. Beth Moss, by helping children with activities, while promoting positivity and kindness to children. Wofford noted her future goals are to be a Trauma Counselor with a concentration in Art Therapy and work with children. adding that she finds such value with working with Mrs. Moss. At WBBI, students were encouraged to fill out an “Act of Kindness” BINGO sheet. Together, these students helped make a stand against bullying and helping provide acceptance to all students. Said Landrie, “Mr. Timmy Fleming, Mrs. Kimberly Beam and Mr. Mark Reep have all been very helpful with spreading the message of kindness to their students daily and helping with many Kindness Club efforts over the past year.” Though the Kindness Club initiative officially started in 2019, it was an idea that began in the 8th grade, she said. “Its purpose is to encourage students to focus on positive thoughts and actions. It is meant to ensure that all students feel included, safe, and encouraged to be their own unique self!” said Wofford. In 2020, a formal club was started but limited activities were allowed due to COVID restrictions, though, Hayes and Wofford helped raise funds to pay for custom positive reminder posters hung at Cherryville schools in 2020 and 2021. These kindness posters, that are hung in our local schools help to remind students to be kind to one another and to love themselves.

The Cherryville Eagle

A very small 10-member club in 2020 raised additional funds and participated in additional local volunteer work for our community and school. Also, Ms. Wofford has also painted murals at Cherryville High School to promote kindness messages. Said Wofford, “Mr. Shawn Hubers, who is currently the CHS principal, was previously the Cherryville Elementary principal. He helped choose appropriate posters and quotes in the school. Currently, Mrs. Audrey Hovis, Principal, has additionally worked with me to pull through the kindness poster/program initiative for the 2021 school year. “Mr. Todd Dellinger, Principal at WBBI, and Mr. Timmy Fleming, assistant teacher, also worked with this initiative for their students to display these posters in their school.” All the projects have been planned and cleared with Principals Hubers, Dellinger and Hovis, as Wofford and Hayes wanted to make sure the chosen messages were appropriate and relevant to each school. Landrie said this year’s CHS Kindness Club is led by Mr. Robert Webb, a teacher at CHS. “He has done an amazing job planning and encouraging students to be part of this important club!” she said, adding. “This year, over 150 students have signed up for the Club!” Kindness Club Vice President, Payton Cook will be carrying the initiative forward after Landrie graduates and the club will have grade level sponsors to ensure all students are involved. Also, each month, all members of the club will have monthly activities to help remind others to choose kindness through one kind act at a time in our schools and community. Some examples will be community clean-up, teacher/ staff appreciation week, random act of kindness activities, can food drives, volunteer work and spreading positivity by encouraging positive messages in our community events. Wofford noted, “At the beginning of school, several members of the club made freshmen welcome 'goodie bags’ to remind students that they are never alone, and that they are special and accepted. The club’s wish is to raise additional money for kindness posters at our schools and our local sports complexes.” Landrie continued, “The mission of the Kindness Club is to make a difference through random acts of kindness….one student at a time. I know each person in the club will do an amazing job working together. I am so glad to have so many

It is a group effort for sure, and it isn’t about me. “If one student can feel better about themselves and spread kindness to another person, then all these efforts are worth it! I know we can make a difference as a team!” Wofford added, “None of this would be possible without the support from our school’s principals: Mr. Hubers, Mr.

Dellinger, and Mrs. Hovis and Mr. Webb, who is our amazing advisor and leader. Also, many other people in our community have supported this club and helped in so many ways. Everything that has happened is because of many kind leaders who truly care for students and want every student to feel safe and included!” Landrie’s parents, Jason and Danielle Wofford, said of

their daughter’s work with the Kindness Club, “We are very proud of Landrie for founding this club and then starting the official 'Kindness Club’ with Ben. They both worked many many months preparing for this initiative and club. “She spoke about this idea and wanted to paint murals when she was in the eighth grade. She has always

noticed peers that were left out and this is how it began. We are most proud that she realizes that every idea or action is because of the efforts of many people who care. At the end of the day, this is what is important to us as her parents, and we are beyond proud of her and the efforts of all members of the club!”

How to Find Financial Assistance for Aging-in-Place Improvements Dear Savvy Senior, Do you know of any financial assistance programs that can help seniors with home improvement projects? I would like to help my grandparents make a few modifications to their house so they can continue living there safely, but money is tight. Searching Grandson Dear Searching, Yes! There are a number of financial aid programs available that can help seniors with home modifications and improvement projects for aging-in-place, but what’s available to your grandparents will depend on their financial situation and where they live. Here are some different options to explore. Medicare Advantage benefits: While original Medicare does not typically pay for home improvements, if your grandparents are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage (Part C) plan, it may offer some aid for modifications based on need. Contact their Medicare Advantage provider to see if this is available. Medicaid waivers: If your grandparents are low-income and eligible for Medicaid, most states have Medicaid Home and Community Based Services waivers that provide financial assistance to help seniors avoid nursing homes and remain living at home. Each state

has different waivers, eligibility requirements and benefits. Contact your Medicaid office (see Medicaid.gov) for information. Non-Medicaid government assistance: Many state governments and several agencies within the federal government have programs that help low to moderate income seniors, who aren’t eligible for Medicaid with home modifications. For example, the Department of Housing and Urban Development offers HUD Home Improvement Loans by private lenders. Contact a HUD approved counseling agency (call 800-569-4287) to learn more. And the U.S. Department of Agriculture has a Rural Development program that provides grants and loans to rural homeowners. Your local USDA service center (see offices. sc.egov.usda.gov) can give you more for information. Many states also have financial assistance programs known as nursing home diversion programs. These programs, which may include grants or loans or a combination, helps pay for modifications that enable the elderly and disabled to remain living at home. Modifications covered typically include accessibility improvements like wheelchair ramps, handrails and grab bars.

To find out if there are programs in your grandparent’s area, contact the city or county housing authority, the local Area Aging Agency (800-677-1116) or the state housing finance agency – see NCSHA.org/housing-help. Veteran benefits: If your either of your grandparents is a veteran with a disability, the VA provides grants like the SAH, SHA and HISA grants that will pay for home modifications. See Benefits.va.gov/benefits/ factsheets/homeloans/sahfactsheet.pdf for details and eligibility requirements. Some other VA programs to inquire about are the “Veteran-Directed Care” program and “Aid and Attendance or Housebound Benefits.” Both programs provide monthly financial benefits to eligible veterans that can help pay for home modifications. To learn more, visit VA.gov/geriatrics or call 800-827-1000. Nonprofit organizations: Depending on where your grandparent’s live, they may also be able to get assistance in the form of financial aid or volunteer labor to help with modifications. One of the most noteworthy is the organization Rebuilding Together (RebuildingTogether.org, 800-473-4229), which offers three programs: Safe at Home, Heroes

at Home, and National Rebuilding Day. Another option is community building projects, which provide seniors with volunteer labor to help them make home improvements. To search for projects in your grandparent’s area, do web search containing the phrase “community building project” followed by their “city and state.” Reverse mortgage: Available to seniors 62 and older who own their own home and are currently living there, a reverse mortgage will let your grandparents convert part of the equity in their home into cash – which can be used for home improvements – that doesn’t have to be paid back as long as they live there. But reverse mortgages are expensive loans, so this should be a last resort. For more information on these and other financial assistance programs, go to PayingForSeniorCare.com and click on “Senior Care” followed by “Home Modifications.” Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Raegan Nowowiecki, the CHS Lady Ironmen’s senior pitcher, recently signed a Letter of Intent to play college softball for the Lady Quakers of Guilford College.

Raegan, surrounded by her family members, coaches, and her many friends and Lady Ironmen teammates, signed the LOI at CHS in the library. Nowowiecki played travel ball, noted her mom, Jennifer, for last eight years, primarily as a pitcher, and

LEGAL NOTICE LEGAL NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING NORTH CAROLINA GASTON COUNTY CITY OF CHERRYVILLE CITY COUNCIL Notice is hereby given that the Cherryville City Council will meet on Monday November 8th at 6:00 pm at the Cherryville Fire Dept., 411 East Church St. to hold a Public Hearing to consider the following:

currently plays for Players Adidas Elite. She is coached by Autumn and Chris McCurry, said Jennifer. When Raegan came to Cherryville, her mom said she played softball all two years at John Chavis Middle School, then played all four years at CHS under head softball coach AJ Henley. “She will continue her softball and academic careers at Guilford College in Greensboro NC in the fall, and her intended will major will be Health Science. She plans on getting a Bachelor’s degree in that discipline, noted Mrs. Heavner. Guilford, located in Greensboro, N.C., is a Division 3 NCAA college.

Raegan will be coached by Dennis Shores and her pitching coach will be Staci Smith. Parents Ricky and Jennifer Heavner and her sister, Savannah Heavner, are all – to say the least – very proud of and for her. Said mom. Jennifer, “She has worked very hard for this and we’re just so proud of her!” Dad, Ricky echoed this sentiment as he smiled at her as she and her friends posed for “selfies” and photos after the signing, saying, “Yes sir! We ARE VERY proud of her!” Raegan, along with softball teammate Laila Davis, represented CHS at the Body Armor state games this past

summer of 2021. She was All-Conference her junior year; second team All-State and All-Area her junior year as well. Raegan ranked 41st in the state in strikeouts; received “Best Pitcher” accolades; and was the Southern Piedmont 1A Pitcher of the Year; all in her junior year, said mom, Jennifer. Lady Ironmen head softball coach AJ Henley said, “Raegan has been with me for three of her four years here at CHS as a starter for our team. I’m excited for her and proud for her that she is going to the next level, to play college softball. I am also looking for a great year from her this Spring, espe-

cially with the new freshmen coming in.” Both coaches McCurry said they are “super proud” of Raegan, of how she always put in the time and the hard work to be the best she could be when it came to pitching and giving “110 percent” for the game of softball. CHS AD Scott Harrill said, “We here at CHS are proud of Raegan and what she has done for our softball team. She is an amazing pitcher who has grown over the four years she has been her at CHS. We look forward to following her college career at Guilford and know she will represent CHS well.”
