Cherryville’s Hocus Pocus Parade will be held Friday, October 15 Last year’s event was a wonderful “first” for the City “Where Life Blossoms!” by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Cherryville will once again have a Hocus Pocus Parade – with hopes the weather will permit, of course – and it is slated for Friday, Oct. 15, starting at 6 p.m., and lasting until 9 p.m., according to Downtown Director David Day. The flier and parade route information can be found, he said, on the City of Cherryville’s web site

under the “Events” section. “You can also find out more information on the City’s Chamber of Commerce Facebook page,” said Mr. Day. Last year, Cherryville Chamber President and Events coordinator Mary Beth Tackett told the Eagle the Hocus Pocus Parade was done, at that time, “… in place of Little Spooks Parade and Scary-Ville,” adding it was a “first” for the community. The parade then had 10 floats, or vehicles in the parade, and was not open for the public to join in on, she added then. Said Mrs. Tackett in the Eagle article, “All the floats were built by the Events

Cherryville one of 24 towns to receive Powell Bill funds $143-plus million in Powell Bill funds sent by NCDOT to help municipalities improve transportation by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Cherryville is just one of 24 towns in the CF Media area that is benefitting from $143-plus million in Powell Bill funding to help with those towns’ infrastructure needs. In a recent media release the N.C. Department of Transportation noted it is distributing more than $143.1 million in State

Street Aid to Municipalities, also known as Powell Bill funds, to 509 municipalities statewide. The initial allocation, or half the total, was distributed this week, the release stated, with the other half to be paid by Jan. 1, 2022. Cherryville’s half of their total Powell Bill Funds allocation of $173, 890.88 is $86,945.44. The City of Cherryville has already received that first payment, City officials said. In the release, State Transportation Secretary Eric Boyette said, “Powell Bill funding makes many critical transportation improvements possible for communities from the

mountains to the coast. Municipalities can use these funds on a variety of projects that make North Carolina an even better place to live and work.” It should be noted that Powell Bill funds are used primarily to resurface municipal streets but can also be used to maintain, repair, construct or widen streets, bridges and drainage areas. Additionally, municipalities can also use Powell Bill funds to plan, construct and maintain bike paths, greenways or sidewalks. NCDOT’s media release noted the amount each municipality receives is based on a formula set by the N.C. See BILL, Page 2

Gaston Together requests nominations for 2022 MLK Unity Award by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Donna Lockett, Executive Director, Gaston Together: Communities of Excellence noted in a recent media release, they are in the process of requesting nominations for their 2022 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Awards. Locket said, via the media release, “The Gaston Clergy & Citizens Coalition (GC3), an initiative of Gaston Together, will present the 2022 Gaston Together MLK Unity Awards on Monday, Jan. 17, the MLK national holiday,” adding the details for the event “…are pending based on current coronavirus guidelines.” Lockett also noted GT’s MLK Unity Award

and Jurassic Park.” The public wasn’t asked to get involved with and be in the parade, noted Mrs. Tackett then, because they

“…wanted to ensure that this parade was high quality and full of everyone’s favorite characters. If we would have opened it up to

the public there would have been no way to be sure there was only one of each character” had it been opened up See HOCUS, Page 2

Lots of blame to go around: House committee holds hearing on problems with N.C. ABC, warehouse by JOHN TRUMP Carolina Journal

Spiritous liquor is still in short supply in ABC stores across the state, and supply still isn’t keeping up with demand. Republican lawmakers say things are getting even worse. Rep. Tim Moffitt, R-Henderson, and other members of the N.C. House Alcoholic Beverage Control Committee spent more than two hours Wednesday, Sept. 29, trying to determine what’s going on with the N.C. ABC Commission and warehouse operator LB&B Associates. Moffitt, after the meeting, said he now has more questions than answers. “This issue has really

From Page 1 General Assembly, “…with 75 percent of the funds based on population, and 25 percent based on the number of locally-maintained street miles.” Annually, Powell Bill allocations are made to incorporated municipalities that establish their eligibility and qualify as provided by G.S. 136-41.1 through 136-41.4. The general statutes require that an appropriation of funds by the General Assembly to the Department of Transportation for State aid to municipalities from the State Highway Fund. These funds are distributed to the qualified municipalities in two allocations: on or before Oct. 1, and on or before Jan. 1; and are, as stated, “…to be expended primarily for the purposes of resurfacing streets within the corporate limits of the municipality but may also be used for maintaining, repairing, constructing, reconstructing, or widening of local streets that are the responsibility of the municipalities, in addition to the planning, construction, and maintenance of bikeways, greenways, or sidewalks pursuant to G.S. 136-41.1 – 41.4.” Further, noted the NCDOT release, “Because the 2021/2022 budget has not passed as of this date, the Continuation Budget was used to provide the amount available the October Powell Bill Allocation. The Continuation Budget is $143,102,801, half of this will be used for the October Powell Bill Allocation.” It continued, “Each municipality establishes its eligibility annually by submitting a Certified Statement, Street Listing, and a Certified Powell Bill Map to the Department of Transportation. The map is required if changes have been made to the municipality’s corporate limits or if the mileage has changed. “In addition, each munici-

She also added the Parade was modeled it after the Disney Celebration Parades so as to be “…full of music, lights and fun.” Additionally, Tackett noted then that some of the Chamber members got in on the fun too as they dressed up as characters from some of the beloved Disney and Marvel and DC comic book superhero movies. Tackett herself was one of the notorious “Sanderson Sisters” (from the movie, “Hocus Pocus”), enlisting help from Cherryville businesswomen Hannah Garrett and Amber Dellinger. “Gary Dellinger (owner/ operator of Dellinger Electric) was Billy Butcherson, and Bailey Tackett was Dani Dennison on the float,” she said, in the Eagle article. Both Tackett and Day will admit that putting together something of this size and intricacy doesn’t come easy or with a wave of a magic wand or a magical snap of the fingers. There is, they will tell you, a great deal of “elbow grease”, a.k.a. “work” involved planning the route, designing the floats, and putting them together so

Said Tackett after last year’s Parade, “This event was SO worth it! Seeing kids standing in their driveways jumping up and down with excitement, seeing our seniors standing in their doorways dancing and waving, and adults smile as they see some of their childhood favorites driving right past their house.” She continued then, “You can tell (2020’s COVID pandemic) has taken its toll on so many,

so it was nice to see people just genuinely smiling and having fun again. It was a magical night. I hope this event blessed the community at least half as much as it blessed us.” In conclusion, Tackett said, “This event wouldn’t have been possible without our Event Team, which consists of Gary Dellinger as chair, Mike and Tina Clark, Hannah Garrett, Rhonda Stephens, Allison Brewer, and newcomer, Rebecca Goins, of Butter

Me Up Bakery. Also, a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who participated on the floats, and to the Cherryville Police and Fire Departments for keeping us safe along the way and all of our sponsors! Thank you SO MUCH!” Mr. Day also reminded everyone to go to the City’s website and the Chamber’s Facebook page for more info on the parade’s route and time, or to call the Chamber at (704) 4353451 for more information.

According to information posted on that web site, on Sept. 20, the Board of Education “…voted to maintain the current procedure of requiring people, including students, employees, and visitors, to wear a face covering/mask while inside a Gaston County Schools facility regardless of vaccination status.” Hagans noted in an email

the requirement will be in effect until the next Board of Education meeting, which will be held on Monday, Oct. 18. He also noted that, in accordance with state law, boards of education in North Carolina must take action to maintain or amend its face covering/mask policy at least once a month. Hagans also noted that factors contributing to the Board’s decision “…include the continued high transmission rate of the COVID-19 Delta variant and the continued high COVID-19 positivity rate in Gaston County. Additionally, wearing face coverings/masks indoors is expected to reduce the number of students/employees who are required to quarantine when there is a confirmed case.” Further, students/drivers are required to wear a face covering/mask while riding on a school bus or activity bus in accordance with federal requirements for public transportation, he added.

But, said Moffitt, the company isn’t doing it “in front of the customer,” who ultimately suffers. Such is now the case with LB&B. ABC chairman A.D. Zander Guy Jr. resigned as chairman of the ABC Commission more than a week ago. ABC spokesman Jeff Strickland offered no additional information. Guy’s resignation came amid liquor supply shortages, in part because of problems with the global supply chain but largely because of issues with LB&B Associates. The ABC Commission in March voted unanimously to recommend that the state award a new 10-year contract for warehouse services to LB&B, the target of an audit in 2018 that has, over previous years, cost the state about $13.5 million. The ABC concurred with the audit and promised to fix the myriad issues, including a focus on accountability and efficient delivery. The agreement, the ABC says, includes a requirement of nearly error-free and on-time deliveries as well as increased delivery frequency to the state’s 171 local ABC boards. LB&B has operated the state warehouse system since 2003, Thompson said. The state has two warehouses, in Garner and, most recently, Clayton. Wednesday’s meeting touched on the audit but also the continuing problems with supplies at local ABC stores, which the warehouse operators blame on a new software system implemented by LB&B in early July, now some three months ago. The problems are getting worse, Moffitt said during the hearing. Lawmakers have for months now fielded complaints from most types of private entities that serve alcohol, including bars and restaurants. ABC store shelves are bare across the state, even as neighboring states aren’t seeing issues any-

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 where near as severe as North Carolina’s. Moffitt and fellow lawmakers have taken the questions, but the answers are few. Benjamin Thompson, outside counsel for LB&B, and Terrance Merriweather, who stepped in for Guy, tried to answer lawmakers’ questions. The hearing led to little news, as the problems with the warehouse and state-controlled system are widely known and much talked about. The real problem is a monopolistic, antiquated system established some 85 years ago to appease towns and counties resisting the sale of alcohol by, in essence, buying them off with a cut of the proceeds. The answers from lawyers and ABC officials who addressed the committee carried a similar thread: blame. Blame that focused on issues with the global supply chain, on an increase in volume partly because people are drinking now because of the pandemic, on a shortage of workers, on an older warehouse, and on drivers. The biggest alleged culprit? A new software system was implemented in early July and, says Thompson, customers are still learning to use it. Some local ABC boards are reluctant to use the new system at all, continuing to use the older system, which connects suppliers and customers with the warehouse. Sen. Todd Johnson, R- Union, told Thompson the lawyer offered many reasons for the issues but failed to articulate the biggest failure. “Which one is it?” asked Johnson, who Moffitt invited to the meeting. “It’s all of them,” answered Thompson. Merriweather, for his part, said the ABC is committed to solving the issues and has implemented training sessions for the software, as well as focus groups that bring up issues and problems. He says the ABC is committed to “full transparency.” Which does little to fix things, however. Johnson said he sees billboards and banners sending people to South Carolina to get rare liquor. “There, the shelves are

full,” he said. “What’s the difference?” Thompson debated the point and told a story of being taken to the back of one South Carolina store, which was piled with what he called junk. He said he was told the store had to buy the junk so it could, in turn, buy the rare bourbon. Thompson says the state keeps $40 million to $60 million worth of liquor in the two facilities, and the LB&B contract stipulates the operator must take inventory by July. That was delayed because of the Independence Day holiday and didn’t start until July 5. Deliveries fell behind, “and we could not catch up and keep up on those five days,” Thompson says. The loads from the warehouse doubled in August over July. “We believe the delivery issues are now on track,” said Thompson, who blamed a “learning curve.” He said the state is delivering more liquor than the contract stipulates, but it’s still not enough. He said many provisions in the new contract are difficult to meet. Committee CoChair Rep. Jamie Boles, R-Moore, said LB&B probably waited too long to teach people to use the system. “Nobody likes change,” Boles said, “but I don’t think there was enough time prepared on behalf of LB&B … to work with local boards in teaching the new computer system.” Moffitt visited the ABC warehouses about three weeks ago, he said. No shopping bags, and no register to buy anything. The buildings, he said, were full. “But I did find the missing alcohol,” including cases of Buffalo Trace and Weller bourbons, which are difficult if not nearly impossible to buy throughout most of the year in North Carolina. The bourbons, made at the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, simply sat there, Moffitt said. No one seemed to be readying it for sale or distribution.

We have been South America or Africa, tricked into believing that we see the Body of Christ the devil no longer exists. stronger than ever. Yet, First Peter 5:8 calls him a here in Gaston County, “prowling lion”. The prey in the heart of the Bible of such a beast doesn’t Belt, less than 15 percent know he is there until it’s of people attend church too late. I fear he is at all regularly. Our children are our throats already. The more likely to name the devil hasn’t formed any Jonas Brothers than the new diabolical plans for Gospels. They can tell you us. No, he has gone back where they play ball and to the original plan used in

the Garden of Eden. In our comfortable lives we never see it coming. In the Garden the devil tempts Eve to eat the forbidden fruit in order to become like God. In essence, the devil invites her to lift herself up as God. Of course, Adam goes right along with her. We see this tactic again as Jesus is tempted in the desert. The devil calls on Christ to change the reality of stone to bread, command angels, and take over the world. Instead, Christ humbles himself before the Father. Instead of humbling ourselves we have lifted ourselves up as the most important beings in the world. We don’t have to look at the world to see this, we

need only examine how we approach worship. The number one reason people don’t go to worship is, “I don’t get anything out of it.” Other reasons may include, “The church doesn’t look like I like”; “The preacher doesn’t preach like I like.” Or, very important to many, “I don’t like the music.” I heard an ironic story of a woman who left a church because they sang the wrong version of “Here I Am to Worship”. Who are we there to worship? We are created to worship God. If we approach worship with the thought, “What am I getting out of this?” then we are in our original parents’ trap; we are worshiping ourselves. Let me be clear. If we go

to worship to benefit ourselves, we are not worshiping God. The devil has us. I think this is a major reason that our churches are weak. We have lost our focus. We must come to worship for God, then for our neighbor, and forget ourselves. A way to think about it is ‘Thee, We, Me’. Worship is for Thee, O Lord. We the community of believers gather to support one another. Worship should humble me. Through worship we may lose ourselves to Christ Who will save us. In losing ourselves our eyes will be open to our adversary. From here we may rise wiser than before.

Not Too Young Cherryville Area (Part 2 “Prepared for Eternity” Series)

Living a long life is a blessing, especially when you’ve had a chance to serve the Lord and spend time with several generations of your family members. Psalm 90:10a (NLT) states, “Seventy years are given to us! Some even live to eighty.” Unfortunately, that will not be everyone’s DANYALE PATTERSON testimony, as some people leave this earth at very young ages. Death doesn’t discriminate between ethnic groups, age groups, or social-economic groups. It takes whoever it chooses and whenever it pleases. James 4:14 (CEV) says, “What do you know about tomorrow? How can you be so sure about your life? It is nothing more than mist that appears for only a little while before it disappears.” Get Them Ready As parents or grandparents, our job is to teach children about who God is, what it means to have a relationship with Christ, and the importance of obedience to the scriptures. Deuteronomy 6:7 (NLT) says, “Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up”. It is imperative to let our youth know that they are not too young to have a surrendered life to the Lord. Ecclesiastes 12:1 (NLT) says, “Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.” Also, they need to learn the value of having an “others-centered” life of service and humility, as well as using their natural talents to glorify the Lord. I Stepped In Recently, I read a book about a 17-year-old girl named Angela who died a few years ago in a plane crash on her way to do ministry. She had spent her life teaching children about God and leading people to Christ. Her father was distraught, as he dreaded to even look at the body. At that moment, someone called him in tears and told him that the previous night, in a dream Angela came to him and said, “Let my daddy know it didn’t hurt. I simply just stepped into Heaven.” A few weeks later one of the passengers who survived the accident described the last few minutes before the crash. He stated, “Angela was praying in the Spirit violently; then she just drooped over with her bible on her lap and was silent before the crash.” Wow! This teenager demonstrated that she knew how to pray and connect with God. In the last seconds of her life, she was full of the Spirit and displayed a deep passion for her Savior. She was prepared for eternity - how about you? PRAY THIS PRAYER: “Lord, I don’t know the day or the hour when I will leave this place; I realize that my age doesn’t matter, so I want to be ready. Please forgive me for all unrighteousness. I ask you to be my Lord and Savior forever. Help me to live for you and to please you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.” Danyale Patterson is co-founder of Enlighten Ministries, a 501c3 organization with her husband Brandon Patterson.

Ironmen gridiron squad gets 50-14 road win at Highland Tech by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

As the 2021 football season winds its way down, the head coach Tim Pruitt’s CHS Ironmen were still in the hunt for a much-needed win, if for no other reason than a morale boost. Last Friday night, Oct. 8, they got a big one – 5014, to be exact – at the expense of the Highland Tech Rams. And on the Ram’s home turf. And during that team’s Homecoming Night ceremonies, no less! It was pretty much the Cooper Sloan show, with star turns by the usual cast of stellar players: Chase Miller, Landon Hahn, Kadin Beaver, Shamyr Moss, Jackson Owens, Caleb Hovis, Gavin Cease, Carter Spangler, Kam Bolin, Henry Gil, Jack Mulvey, Mason Grindstaff, and, well, the list that night was seemingly endless as everybody got into the action on both sides of the line for the Ironmen. The Ironmen’s first TD came in the first quarter with 8:44 on the clock as young Mr. Sloan not only got the TD, but powered it in the end zone for a twopoint conversion afterwards, making the opening score 8-0, Ironmen. Sloan’s second TD came on a 30yard run to the end zone with 2:54 on the clock. Quarterback Chase Miller ran it into the end zone for the Ironmen’s second twopoint conversion, making it 16-0. In second quarter action, Landon Hahn caught a Miller pass and got 25 yards out of it, followed up by yet another Sloan TD. this time with 10:38 on the clock. The extra point attempt was no good but the Ironmen were now up 22-0, with no

The Ironmen’s fourth TD of the night, also in the second quarter, came from senior wide right Carter Spangler, who caught a Miller pass and ran it 42 yards for the TD with 7:49 on the clock. Gil’s PAT was good and the score went to 29-0, CHS. A Rams fumble was scooped up by speedy fullback Kam Bolin and the swift junior took it 28 yards into the end zone for a TD. With Henry Gil’s PAT being through the uprights, the score was 36-0, Ironmen. Closing out the second quarter and the first half of play, Sloan once again scrambles 20 yards for TD with 2:50 on the clock. With Gil’s PAT kick good, the score was now 43-0, CHS. The Ironmen, at halftime, had 177 yards rushing and 69 yards passing for a total of 246 yards. After the Rams had their Homecoming festivities, the teams came back onto the field and third quarter

play began. At some point, the refs called for the game clock to continue to run, and Kadin Beaver assumed the QB duties. Ball carrying duties went to Gavin Cease for this quarter. Cease, who carried the ball six times, rushed for 79 yards, with some of those yards being a two-yard scamper into the end zone with 7:28 on the clock for an Ironmen TD. Gil’s PAT was good and the Ironmen were up 50-0. The Rams were finally able to get on the boards with a TD with 1:37 left on the clock in the third quarter, but their PAT was no good. Starting the fourth, the Rams recovered their own onside kick and looked to move down the field under a new-found head of steam but senior cornerback Jack Mulvey has other ideas as he intercepted a Rams pass and ran it back for 15 yards. The Ironmen had to turn it over on downs and the Rams capitalized on their good fortune, turning it into

a TD with 2:45 left on the clock. Rams QB, senior Luke Whitted ran into the end zone for the two-point conversion and the game ended shortly thereafter, with the final being 5-14, CHS. Coach Tim Pruitt said

of his men, “I thought we executed our plays a lot better Friday night in keeping the ball away from our opponents. We were able to control the line of scrimmage on both sides, offense as well as defense. Anytime you can average 10 yards a

game is a good night. We were able to force some turnovers and, on defense, tackle Caleb Hovis (#78) had seven tackles.” (Additional information by Susan L. Powell and Danny Eaker)

Lady Ironmen spikers lose one; win one last week Varsity’s overall record is 10-12; 6-4 in conference play by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Coach Leigh Kiser’s Lady Ironmen varsity spikers split a pair of matches this past week; a loss to the Lady Rams and a home win against the Lady Huskies of Hunter Huss. On Tuesday, Oct. 5, the CHS ladies went on the road to league leader Highland Tech and left Gastonia somewhat bloodied due to a 3-0 loss to the Lady Rams. Coach Leigh Kiser said her team played really well in set one before losing all three sets by scores of 2521, 25-5, and 25-16. Taylor Digh came away, said Kiser, with eight digs, with senior Skye Reed getting four kills to lead the Cherryville ladies. Said Coach Kiser of the varsity team, “They are a really good team and should do well once playoff time gets here.” Getting back into the swing of things the very next day, on Wednesday, Oct. 6, Coach Kiser said the Lady Ironmen went out of conference and hosted the Lady Huskies of Hunter Huss, in Gastonia. Kiser noted she “…got everybody in some game action” as the CHS ladies won 3-0. Match scores, said Kiser, were 25-18, 25-16, and 2512. “Our scoring leaders were Rileigh Kiser, with 14 serve aces and 16 assists; Addie Eaker, with six kills; Terayha Bess, with five kills, and Skye Reed with four kills,” said Coach Kiser, adding, “It was good to put the Highland Tech loss behind us and get back in the win column!” In the only JV action this week, Highland Tech beat the junior varsity Lady Ironmen 25-9 and 25-13, in last Tuesday’s match.

On Monday, Oct. 4, the John Chavis Wolverines golf team, comprised of Colton Robinson, Kenan Fowler, Talon Dalton, Kameron Causby, and Canon Whiteside, coached by Timmy Fleming, took the 2021 Gaston County Middle School golf championship, with a one-stroke lead over second-place Belmont. The teams’ score was 188 over Belmont’s 189. Colton Robinson shot a 43; Kenan Fowler shot a 47; Talon Dalton, 48; Kameron Causby, 50; and Canon Whitesides, 59. In earlier action last week, head JCMS boys golf coach Timmy Fleming said the John Chavis Middle School Wolverines won their match this past Tuesday at Crowders Mountain Golf Course over Cramerton, and then
