Cherryville parades frightfully great fun for kids of all ages by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Cherryville Chamber President Mary Beth Tackett is very pleased with how this year’s Halloween-themed parades have gone, and is glad to put 2020 and all its bad COVID memories behind her. “We are so happy with the way the Hocus Pocus Parade pulled together this year. The weather was perfect and a lot more people came out to support it,” she said, adding she is equally pleased with how the other two Halloween-themed parades and festivities turned out as well. Regarding the Hocus Pocus Parade, Tackett noted, “There was so much creativity added this year with the

addition of The Scooby Doo crew by Modern Security, the PAC Man Float by Peak Resources and a Hansel and Gretel Float by Butter Me Up.” Tackett continued, “I want to thank all the volunteers that helped make these parades successful and give a special shout out to our events team Gary Dellinger, Hannah Garrett, Mike Clark, Tina Clark, Rhonda Stephens Rebecca Goins, and Allison Brewer. This team shows up time and time again to help with these events. Most of the time putting forth their own money and a lot of their personal time to make the events better. As for the Scaryville crowds, Mrs. Tackett estimated they had around 4,000 See PARADES, Page 10

Gaston County Health Dept. offering all three COVID-19 vaccine boosters Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines boosters now available for county residents by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

According to a recent media release from Adam J. Gaub, Director of Communications for Gaston County, as of last Wednesday, Oct. 27, the Gaston County Public Health Department is offering booster shots for the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. Also, noted Mr. Gaub, as of last Wednesday, Gaston

County Emergency Medical Services, in collaboration with Gaston County Public Health, offered initial and booster shots for the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines to the following: the homebound, the mobility-impaired, and to unhoused individuals. Said Gaub in his media release, “This is a service GEMS provided near the beginning of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution as well, ensuring that a lack of transportation would not be a barrier to anyone who wants to be vaccinated against the virus.” Gaub noted individuals do not need to get their booster dose at the same location where they received their initial vaccinations, adding, “In addition, individuals can get a different See BOOSTERS, Page 2

A DVD of the Cherryville New Year’s Shooter’s groups has been premiered on YouTube and it is a labor of love and patience that has been in the works for – as its producer says – many years. Although the actual putting it together and getting it out on YouTube took roughly five months, producer/director/videographer and editor Rusty Wise said, “We shot the interview footage back in January 2000. The past five months I’ve been working on the editing and production of it; basically, June to October 2021. The movie premiered on YouTube Oct. 17, 2021.” Wise continued,

“Making a movie is very time-consuming, especially the editing. With a documentary you want it to be accurate so I really had to research the content for dates and name accuracy. I’ve passed around pictures at our Shooter host dinners the past few years to get proper names. So, I guess I’ve been working on this for 21 years.” Wise said in order to view the two-hour long movie on YouTube, one can stream the movie via YouTube at the following link:, or search YouTube for “Cherryville New Years Shooters Documentary Movie”. Wise said while the movie is a couple of hours long, it started out at one hour but he “…wanted to include some shooting footage as well as some other footage I was able to find. “Most all of the footage See SHOOTERS, Page 2

Carl “Boozie” Dellinger, who recently passed this year, dearly loved being the President of the Cherryville New Year’s Shooters, Inc. group. He was interviewed for the movie.

CHS pep club presents huge check to Atrium Health Cherryville High School has had a pep club, affectionately known as the METALHEADS, for several years now. This year the students wanted to be a little more involved in the themes for our Friday night football games. As a group we decided we wanted to do a “Pink Out” in support of cancer awareness. We just recently lost one of our former staff members whose husband still works as a teacher at our school to a battle with cancer. We sold a little over 100 T-shirts to our students and community. In addition, a few See CHS, Page 9

Three Chavis Middle students step up to play with Cherryville High School band by ALLISON DRENNAN Gaston County Schools Special to the Eagle

Three eighth-grade students at John Chavis Middle School are preparing for their future with the Cherryville High School marching band. In fact, they’re already a part of the high school band while still being in middle school. Daniel Bredin, Beonka Adams, and Emily Watts are the only students from Anna Waters’ band class who get to participate in Friday night football performances for Cherryville High School. It was an idea that Waters had from the start of her time at Chavis. See CHAVIS, Page 6

Also, if you live or work in a place where many people live together; for example, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, migrant farm housing, dormitories or other group living settings in colleges or universities, they are available as well. Gaub noted in the release that “…according to the CDC, individuals should be at least six months removed from getting their last dose of the Moderna or the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine before getting a booster. Those who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should be at least two months removed from their initial shot before obtaining a booster.” In addition to booster shots, the Health Department is also making preparations for the anticipated approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11. The Health Department is slated to receive 1,200 doses of that vaccine in the initial shipment from the state and is making plans for a separate clinic for children, said Gaub, adding that “…more details will be released on the vaccination rollout for children once final federal approval is in place.” In order to arrange for an initial, second, or booster vaccination for homebound, mobility impaired, and unhoused individuals, Gaub said interested individuals should call GEMS Community Outreach at (704) 862-6287.

SHOOTERS From Page 1 was originally recorded on 1980’s-style VHS tapes. That footage was converted to digital then stretched to fit todays TV screens. It’s very technical and time consuming.” The historical movie includes history of both shooting groups, noted Mr. Wise, who added, “It also tells the history of the group splitting and the reason.” Wise said the movie will be shown at the Cherryville Historical Museum in the new Shooters Exhibit that will be located on the main floor at the entrance of the museum. “We are moving up literally out of the basement of the museum,” he said. “The shooters tradition is older than anything else in Cherryville so I think it’s fitting to be on the main floor where everyone can access the exhibit. The new Shooters Exhibit has been in the works for months, which I’ve been very involved with. Our group has a lot of historical information and facts, thanks to (the late) Howell Stroup and others.” Wise noted also they will probably have DVD’s available for sale at the museum in the future, but it is available free to stream off the internet. I’m not exactly sure the opening date of the new exhibit at the museum.” As for the number of years of the history of the group and how they decided what to use and what not to use, Rusty responded by noting, “The movie covers the shooting tradition from the start in Germany all the way up to the year 2000. It doesn’t cover anything past 2000 except I did include the Downtown Shooters Heritage Mural that was dedicated in 2016. The interviews were filmed in January 2000. I set the script and topics that I wanted to cover, so I asked these in the interviews, along with the history, (information on) black powder, muskets, schedules, hosts, etc.

Another old-time Shooter, who is gone from us too soon – the great Don Homesley – is seen in this screen grab from the DVD which shows him talking about the image of the Shooter’s group from roughly 1910. “The interviews set the storyline of the movie and I set the pictures and video footage to follow. The movie basically follows what the cast is saying. I’ve already had people that have watched the movie saying they learned a lot, laughed and cried through the movie. “Many of the people that you see in the film have passed on now.

We started handing out turkeys Monday, Nov. 1. We’ve had a few questions about where this contest idea came from, and we had mentioned in our Oct. 20, article that we’d found it online. Of course, what we forgot to mention at the time was that this idea – disguising the turkey – is a central theme to one of Ms. Traci’s favorite stories to read, “Run, Turkey, Run!” by Diane Mayr. In the book, Turkey is feeling anxious about Thanksgiving Day. He decides that the best way to avoid the dinner table is to disguise himself as other farmyard animals. He rolls in the mud so the farmer will think he’s a pig, then tries swimming in the duck pond, and finally sticks his head in the feed bucket for the horses. Of course, none of those fool the farmer. At that point, he runs away from the farm, right into the forest. When the farmer goes looking for Turkey in the woods...well, we don’t want to spoil the story. As you can see from the two examples that Ms. Traci made, Turkey is willing to try anything to disguise himself – dressing as a sheep and trying out a ninja costume. Our ‘Turkeys’ are available during public service

These proud WBBI students point to these two informative and colorful posters that let everyone know not only WHEN the holiday food drive starts but WHAT they need! Way to go kids! (photos provided)

We’ll hang the turkeys on our new bulletin board in the Children’s area and let patrons vote through the week of 15th for their favorites. When disguising your turkeys, be creative! You are allowed to use pretty much any craft supply you have on hand: crayons, markers, paint, glitter, fabric, googly eyes, you name it! To allow for as many turkeys as possible, we

would prefer the turkeys be cut out. However, if this isn’t possible, we’ll work with whatever gets turned in.

Hope United Survivor Network launches new website Provides all-in-one digital home for survivor support; community prevention education Hope United Survivor Network recently launched a brand-new website to provide an all-in-one digital home for survivor support and community prevention education in Gaston County. Hope United Survivor Network was created in spring 2020 to create a single point of entry for residents of Gaston County who need resources to address domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, human trafficking and elder abuse. Gaston County now houses all survivor services under one department, Hope United Survivor Network. Under this umbrella, programs include: The Lighthouse Children’s Advocacy Center, Hope United’s Family Justice Center and The Cathy Mabry Cloninger Center: a domestic violence shelter. The survivors’ network

hopes this new site serves as a hub for survivors and their support networks to get help and information. “This new site gives us the opportunity to create a single place where residents of Gaston County know they can visit to access preventative education or to contact us directly to receive support from our staff,” Tara Joyner, Director of Hope United Survivor Network, said. The site includes several features to assist residents in vulnerable situations. Notably, if a person is concerned about whether they are in an abusive or potentially violent situation, the website offers information, self-assessments and a “quick-escape” that redirects the browser to Google if they need to quickly redirect away from the site. “Our goal with the site was to create a truly safe place for survivors to receive help and not feel stress about looking up domestic violence resources,” Joyner said. “Building the quick escape function that followed the user everywhere was

important to us in meeting those goals. We want people who are in dangerous situations to know they can safely access help.” Similarly, the website provides a single home for residents who are looking to support violence prevention work through time or monetary donations. On the website’s “Give Hope” page, supporters can find ways to directly support the programs run by Hope United. “Before this site, donors or volunteers had to search three different websites to figure out ways to give their support. Today, they can visit a single page and see multiple opportunities to make an impact in the lives of survivors,” Joyner said. Hope United Survivor Network is a community collaborative working in one location to provide survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, sexual assault, child abuse and elder abuse a safe and secure place to get the help they deserve. You can visit the new website at

Whew! Am I EVER relieved! Yet another post-Halloween scare avoided! What scare, you may ask? Well…I just read recently in my local liberal ra…, er, newspaper, that a plan to tax billionaires met some stiff pushback in Congress and is, in all likelihood, never going to come to pass. At least, not in the iteration or form many well-meaning, if slightly left-of-center, socialist-leaning denizens of the Washington, DC, swamp would’ve wished. So… I’m safe for now and I can still stash my megabucks in cash and other assets in those wonderful off-shore and Swiss accounts which me and my fellow billionaires all love so well and – honestly – we SWEAR by! I mean, really! I thank God for them on a daily basis, because what would I do if, like… Okay, I’m coming to my senses and am now back to reality. As anyone who knows

me and how my warped sense of not-so-humorous humor is, I am as far removed from being a billionaire as I am from being the next person to jump on a space-bound rocket and blast off to the

moon. Anyway, would taxing the rich really benefit this country? I personally don’t think it would, and, after all, those folks can just up and go somewhere else (like a tax-free haven) and

spend their money there. I can’t imagine that helping our economy, but I’m not an economist. We need to hear more on all sides of this as we go forward in our next few years under Biden.

It was a very important part of her life to be sure they heard about Jesus. There were so many great things I admired about my mom that I cannot write about them all here in this column. She was loving and caring and put other people’s needs before her own. I shall always be thankful to God for giving me such a special mom, and I will see her again one day in heaven.

If you are making less than $40,000 a year then you probably don’t care that single Glenn Mollette people Guest Editorial making over $523,601 pay 37 percent of their income in federal taxes. Married people filing jointly making over $628,301 also pay 37 percent. These people make it and can afford to pay it we often say. What affects someone else doesn’t bother us that much when it comes to income and taxes. Let’s say you are making $35,000 this year but next year you have an opportunity to make $45,000. Suddenly your federal tax rate increases from 12 percent to 22 percent! This is a big jump. You have the opportunity to make more – but more of what you make goes to taxes. You start calculating the hours and time worked versus how much more you have to pay in taxes and you start wondering if it’s worth what it will take to earn the extra income. If a great job comes

your way to earn $209,426 then you start calculating maybe it would be better to figure out how to make $208,000 and stay in the 32 percent tax bracket. Most likely if you are making $209,426 dollars a year you are probably working very hard for it and turning over $70,000-plus a year to the government doesn’t feel very good. Our government is hungry for money. The $2 trillion infrastructure project that is on the table will mean our government will desperately need lots more money for many years to come. Our grandchildren will be saddled with this debt for most of their lives. We need infrastructure updates; roads, bridges, new water lines, better energy sources, internet and more. The project will create a lot of jobs. However, don’t be fooled into thinking someone else will pay for the project. We hear reports that the debt will be passed onto America’s 600 billionaires. Do you really think Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bernard Arnault, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are going to pay for this $2 trillion-dollar infrastructure deal? America’s billionaires should pay their fair share

like all Americans, but a nation that penalizes prosperity is unfair. I don’t feel sorry for billionaires but a billionaire shouldn’t have to pay 40 percent of his/her earnings to the government. Also, America’s billionaires have the resources to move to another country if they choose to. Their tax rate should be fair but we shouldn’t run them out of the country. If your income grows from $30,000 a year to $60,000, that is no reason for you to be penalized by your country. Congress needs to push for a flat tax and tax everyone including billionaires. A tax rate of 12 to 15 percent on all individuals and corporations would encourage people to make more and America would have more money to cover our infrastructure costs. Plus, more manufacturing would come back to America. Instead, our nation discourages prosperity by penalizing those who make more. Every American will pay for the infrastructure project.

Hearing over liquor shortage reveals obvious: N.C. ABC system a mess by JOHN TRUMP Guest columnist Lawmakers held a hearing recently focused on the N.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control system. Their goal was to learn why ABC store shelves are empty and why bars and restaurants are scratching and scraping for typically ubiquitous brands such as Jameson’s and Tito’s.

The ABC blames problems with the global supply chain, but that’s only part of it. The warehouse operator, LB&B Associates, blames new software that customers can’t or won’t figure out. That’s another part. The fundamental issue, which I’ve written over and over again, is an 80-plus-year-old system whose sole purpose is funding coffers of the

170 or so towns and municipalities lucky enough to have an ABC board. The General Assembly last year wisely enacted legislation capping the number of boards, which, as one can imagine, would continue proliferating, like so much highway kudzu. Proponents of the system talk a lot about “control,” which, of course, represents the

third word in the acronym. Indeed, the system controls many things – price, selection, quantity, access, availability, job growth, innovation, entrepreneurship. It does little, however, to control consumption, although a certain pastor and one lawmaker just won’t let it go. People who live close to our southern border find a free, open, and plentiful

market in South Carolina. Further, a plethora of North Carolinians choose not to drink for religious reasons, and a prominent church that preaches abstinence dominates the state. ABC stores stayed open last year while the governor closed the bars, clubs, and restaurants so dependent on profits from selling liquor. Many of these businesses even-

tually closed for good, as all the while ABC racked up record profits. North Carolinians, forced at the point of the proverbial gun to stay home and absorb the constant fear-mongering turned to the bottle, or the can, or the cardboard box. Confused, scared, and depressed. People will find liquor, regardless of See LIQUOR, Page 9

Reflecting on what we are thankful for in our lives First Thessaloand say what we nians 5:16-18 – “Rewere thankful for. joice always, pray I treasure the times without ceasing, that we get to reflect give thanks in all on what it is that we circumstances for are thankful for. this is the will of As a camp counGod in Christ Jesus selor at Tekoa there for you.” was a song that I REV. ZACK CHRISTY would sing with It is impossible Pastor for me to think the kids each night First United Methodist about November before bed. It was Church, Cherryville and not think about a simple song, the Thanksgiving. When chorus was simply, I was younger my entire fam“We’ve got so much, so much, ily would get together at my so much, so much, so much, Nana and G-Dad’s house and so much, to be thankful for”, we would have Thanksgiving and then each camper would dinner. We had a ritual that say what it was they were was very similar to one that thankful for. It seems that at I am sure many of you have; this time of year I get this song we would go around the table stuck in my head. For it is

November is a time we make plans to gather with our families and think about being grateful for our many blessings. However, there are 12 months in a year - how are we acting toward people the other 364 days of the year? We gather to eat turkey on that one special day, but are we acting like a “turkey” on the other days? Many of us try to appear like we DANYALE PATTERSON have our act together, especially on social media with the constant posting of our Photoshopped lives. The truth is we all have issues. Romans 3:23 (ESV) says, “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” It doesn’t matter how much money we have, how educated we are, or what kind of religious title or position we hold in a local church - we all have areas in our lives that need to change. I might not be struggling with what you are dealing with, but all of us are dealing with something. These things usually are displayed toward the ones closest to us through bad attitudes, snappy words, or impatience. You may be thinking, “she is not referring to me, I have many great qualities.” If you are in doubt about needing to change, just ask your spouse, children, or those that know you very well. I assure you they see what we don’t see, or want to see, about ourselves. They observe the good, the bad, and the ugly. Fortunately, we can be transformed by the word of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Meditate on the following Scriptures: Psalm 119:11 (ESV) “I have stored up the word of God in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” Galatians 5:16 (NLT) “So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.” Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT) “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.”

I am thankful for a church that is loving, warm, and kind. I am thankful for a congregation that is willing to accept the call of discipleship and live it out each and every day. As we move into this season of Thanksgiving, I want to challenge us to respond with thanks at every opportunity we have. Give thanks to God in all things that we say, think, and do. When you rise in the morning give thanks for the gift of a new day; as we go to sleep at night give thanks to God for bringing us through another day. Give thanks today, tomorrow, and every day, for what other response can we make to the love of God?

iki Paul reminds the church that our first response to God is one of thanks. “Rejoice always…give thanks in all circumstances.” There are most certainly times in our lives where it is hard to give thanks. It is hard to give thanks when we are disappointed; it is hard to give thanks in sadness; it is hard to give thanks in sickness; and yet our calling is one of a people who are eternally thankful. For whatever trials and tribulations that may arise, the good news of Christ’s victory over death trumps whatever disappointments this life can throw at us. So, it is with grateful hearts that we sing God’s praise.

true I do have so much to be thankful for. Try as I might, I cannot escape this time of year without feeling a deep and abiding sense of thankfulness. I wish that I could blame my nostalgia on the leaves turning, or the cooler weather, or Thanksgiving, but the truth is I am just so thankful. It is sad that I need a time of year to express this sentiment, for every single day should be Thanksgiving. Thankfulness is an important part of our discipleship and is a quintessential marker of the Christian life. Without a thankful heart, it is easy for us to only see what we do not have. Yet, here in this letter to the churches in Thessalon-

That’s the only way you’re going to get better at playing.”

she said. “But, getting to do this now puts us ahead for next year when we’re in the marching band.” Waters says nurturing a love of music and the arts is so important for her students. “Band is one of those classes where you can fully take advantage of independent practice and what you want to get out of it,” she said. “As long as you have an instrument, you can work as much as you want on your skills.

the opportunity for students to begin building a rapport with and understanding the expectations of the high school band program to further prepare them for their band experience during their own high school years.” It’s a sentiment that Adams echoes when thinking about her future with the band. “The most challenging part is keeping up with the high school students when they play because we don’t have as much experience,”



John Chavis Middle School students Daniel Bredin, Emily Watts, and Beonka Adams have been performing this fall with the Cherryville High School marching band. (photos provided)





From Page 1 “When I was student-teaching at a middle school, the band director let his eighth graders march, and I had never heard of that before,” she said. “The students loved it, and it was both challenging and rewarding for them.” When she started at Chavis, Waters met with Cherryville band director Mark Ewing, who had a similar idea of getting students at the middle school involved.

marching with the high schoolers. They stepped up and took their place with the high school band. Looking back, the students believe it was the right decision. Waters says the benefits of marching band are evident every day in her classroom. “From a musical standpoint, they’re playing high school level music,” she said. “It hasn’t been easy for them, but they have really taken on the challenge. But in addition to that, their leadership skills have grown. They help their classmates if they don’t know something or they’ll ask more questions. The whole goal has been to help improve their skills, and we’ve seen that happening on a daily basis.” The students’ confidence in their own ability has increased over time, and they have gotten used to the excitement of playing at high school games. “I was nervous at first,” admitted Watts, who has family members who participated in marching band. “But I feel really comfortable now because I know that I’ve grown in my skills, and I can see how far I’ve come.” Ewing said having these students participate in marching band is beneficial from his viewpoint as a high school director. “It allows



From that point on, they put the plan into action. The concept creates a direct link between middle school and high school band and serves as a way to encourage eighth graders to continue in the band program when they get to high school. “At the end of school last year, I talked to the rising eighth graders about it,” Waters said. “The opportunity is intended for students who want more of a challenge and want to push themselves.” Bredin, Adams, and Watts signed up for band camp in July and spent two weeks learning music and

Ironmen gridiron crew finish regular season with 23-6 win at BCHS “Battle of the Belt” ends with CHS still in charge of the iconic item by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

In yet another “Battle of the Belt” between the CHS Ironmen football squad and their rivals, the Yellow Jackets of Bessemer City High School, a 23-6 victory means the vaunted trophy stays at CHS for another year. With this win, the Ironmen are now one game ahead of the ‛Jackets in their all-time series, 35-34-2, as the Ironmen have been victorious four times in their last six meetings. The action began in earnest at BCHS’ stadium after the Yellow Jackets had their Senior Night festivities, recognizing their football, cheerleading, and band seniors and their parents before the game. Taking the BCHS kickoff, the Ironmen got right to work with their offense running game as Cooper Sloan and Chase Miller racked up yardage. Quarterback Miller completed a pass to Landon Hahn for 18 yards. Another Miller pass was intercepted by the ‘Jackets, but they fumbled the ball and Kadin Beaver recovered it for the Ironmen. Miller called his own number and scrambled for 18 yards, getting closer to the end zone. Gavin Cease made a threeyard dash, taking the ball in for the Ironmen for the TD with 7:00 on the clock. The PAT was no good and the score was 6-0, Ironmen. In second quarter play, the Yellow Jackets wasted no time in tying the game up 6-all with 11:18 on the clock. Their two-point conversion attempt was no good. Ironman Kam Bolin recovered a ‘Jackets fumble, which the Ironmen, through a series of plays and runs, along with three completed passes by Miller to Cease and Hahn (5, 4, and 16 yards) took the

CHS quarterback Chase Miller calls his own number and is off to the races a couple of Jackets defenders try to run him to ground. CHS men to halftime. The halftime stats and tallies are as follows: Cease – 5 carries/9 yards; Sloan – 2 carries/6 yards; and Miller – 12 carries/65 yards. Passing: Hahn – 3 catches/39 yards; Cease – 1 catch/4 yards. Air yards – 43; ground yards – 80, for a total of first half yards of 123. The ‘Jackets received the kickoff and moved downfield, but fumbled. The Ironmen recovered the ball and proceeded to move it for what would be another CHS TD, with 8:48 on the clock. The PAT by kicker Henry Gil was good and the Ironmen were up 13-6. Miller again divided his ball handling skills between calling his own number, handing off to Cease, or throwing to his go-to receiver, Hahn, as well as Carter Spangler, who was like a spider catching flies as he reeled in a couple of Miller’s spirals for 16 yards and 10 yards respectively. The Ironmen got close enough to the BCHS goal for the sure leg of kicker Henry Gil to bang it through for a three-point, 27yard field goal with 1:16 on the clock, taking the Ironmen to a 16-6 lead. The fourth quarter started poorly for the Yellow Jack-

ets as Hahn intercepted their QB, Jameer Hopkins, and ran it back 35 yards. After a Miller called his own number, running for a total of 20 yards off of three rushes, the speedy CHS QB completed a 23-yard pass to Spangler for a TD with 7:00 on the clock. Gil’s PAT was good and the Ironmen’s lead went to 23-6. The BCHS men were unable to keep a tough Ironmen defense off their backs, which kept them from scoring any more points for the remainder of the fourth quarter. The game’s total rushing yards: 156; passing yards: 111, for a total yardage of 267 yards for the night. Miller had 25 carries for 132 yards

It’s the fourth quarter and Ironman Carter Spangler (#2) is in the end zone waiting for the TD pass from Chase Miller (#11), which effectively ended the game for the Yellow Jackets. (rushing); Cease had 9 carries for 20 rushing yards; Hahn caught 5 passes for 57 yards; Spangler caught 3 passes for 50 yards; and Sloan was 2 for 6. Miller completed 7 of 14 passes to get his 111 yards in the air. The Ironmen are currently 3-7 overall; 2-4 in

Ironmen Cross-Country team as well. Said Harrill, “Landrie has been a fixture with the team and is a returning All-Conference performer. Coach Harrill said he is very proud of Landrie and her determination. “She has been a member of the Cross-Country team for three years. Landrie takes pride in her running and we wish her the best in all her future endeavors,” he said.

CHS volleyball season comes to a close after Round One loss to Elkin Varsity players Bess and Kiser named All-Conference players by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Coach Leigh Kiser said the 2021 season came to a close last Monday in the state playoffs for her Lady Ironmen volleyball squad. After a Saturday postponement, Cherryville went on the road to take on Elkin in Round One of the playoffs. Coach Kiser said her team got off to a slow start and could never recover in the 3-0 loss. Match scores were 25-11, 25-18, and 25-15. Leaders for Cherryville were Terayha Bess – 6 kills; Taylor Digh – 6 digs and 2 aces; Krista Davis – 5 digs; and Rileigh Kiser – 14 assists and 8 digs. With the loss, the volleyball careers of five seniors, Addie Eaker, Terayha Bess, Skye Reed, Katie Eaker, and Jessica Martin, came to an end, said Kiser, who added, “…this senior group has worked hard for years and they earned the first playoff

TERAYHA BESS spot in five years. I can’t say enough about what these ladies have meant to me and our program. We had some younger players get a lot of playing experience and we look forward to building on this season with our workouts in the summer.” All-Conference players selected Coach Leigh Kiser also named her players who were selected as Southern Piedmont All-Conference members for this season. “Senior Terayha Bess and junior Rileigh Kiser were selected,” said Kiser. “This is Terayha’s first time being named All-Conference.” According to Coach

RILEIGH KISER Kiser, Bess led the 2021 Lady Ironmen spikers with 196 kills, had a 87.3 serve percentage, with 34 aces, and contributed 21 total blocks. Said Kiser, “Terayha left her mark on the CHS volleyball record book, finishing her career fifth in blocks, and eighth in career kills.” Junior setter Rileigh Kiser was named to the All-Conference squad for the third time, joining for-

mer CHS Lady Ironmen player Bayleigh Henley as the only Lady Ironmen to receive that honor. “For the season, Rileigh had 516 assists, led the team with 272 digs and 87 serve aces, had a 85.7 serve percentage, and chipped in 73 kills from the setter position. As a junior, Rileigh has the single season and career record for serve aces, went over the 1,000 assist mark – done only by Henley, and is currently third all-time in defensive digs,” said Kiser, who added, “These two Lady Ironmen deserve to be honored and I am proud of them both for the successful season that they had!” The CHS Lady Ironmen varsity volleyball squad’s final 2021 season record is 12-14 overall, and 8-4 in SPC 1A/2A play.

At the Friday, Oct. 29 “Pink Out” Cancer Awareness Check Presentation before the CHS/BCHS football game, Metalheads Pep Club members, along with CHS cheerleaders and the entire CHS Ironmen football team posed with a copy of the huge check, representing what was donated for Cancer Awareness in memory of Mrs. Teresa Henley. (photo by MEP/The Eagle/CF Media)


From Page 1 businesses donated directly to the cause. We will have just over $1,000 to donate to Atrium Health Foundation to help support cancer patients and their families. This year our group has selected our game with Bessemer City High School to support the cause and spread awareness. Moving forward, we would like to work with another school in our conference to have a “Pink Out” game where both schools sell shirts

and collect local business donations from our two communities to raise money for the people that Atrium Health Foundation serves. One of our CHS alumni works with the cancer programs at Atrium Health Foundation and will be helping us plan our event in the coming years to increase our efforts to raise money and awareness for those that suffer from this terrible disease. At last Friday’s Oct. 29, donation, while surrounded by a sea of pink, we honored the memory of our former teacher,

Mrs. Teresa Henley, by donating to the Atrium Health Foundation. We could not have made this possible without our staff and students supporting the cause, as well as several of our community businesses sending financial support. A huge thank you to The Medical Center Pharmacy of Cherryville; Mister Sparky/Wise Electric; Watson Electric; Freemans Car Stereo; Print It LLC; Fins and Feathers Lifestyle apparel; and the Cherryville Metalheads.

Twin sisters, Katie and Kelly Diaz qualified as a doubles team to compete in the 1A western Regional tournament on Friday, Oct. 22, in Elkin, N.C. Coach Brandon Shull said the ladies achieved this by earning the conference bid by defeating a doubles team from Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy in the Semi-Finals of the 1A SPC Tournament held at the Bradley Center in Gastonia. CHS Athletic Director Scott Harrill said, “We are really proud of the hard work these girls have put in this year. The team and Coach Shull have worked

extremely hard. We are glad they are representing CHS in such a high achievement.” (photo provided)

From Page 4 whether North Carolina’s monopoly wants to sell it to them. N.C. celebrates its breweries and winemakers, and rightly so. But why not our state’s distillers, who, in all reality serve the same product – ethanol, albeit in myriad forms. A shot of beer, a glass of wine, or a shot of spirits: All the same. For the system to change, lawmakers have to change it. People such as Chuck McGrady, Rick Gunn, Tim Moffitt, and Jamie Boles have done well in moving legislation to reform the system, and the respective governors have concurred. But opposition to taking the system private remains strong. Distillers around the state on Oct. 4 celebrated House Bill 890, which Cooper signed into law, by selling their products on Sunday, apart from the state-run system. The bill takes other steps to level the playing field for distillers, making rules more consistent with those governing breweries and

wineries. The law expands the size of growlers, loosens rules for tours in N.C. distilleries, and allows distillers to sell their products at festivals. It also allows people to order online and pick products up from state ABC stores, although liquor still can’t legally be shipped individually to North Carolinians. Baby steps for sure, but still light years away from a free and open market. Lawmakers, to their credit, will continue to investigate the supply and distribution problem, which – as already proven – will be quite the task. The recent hearing lasted for more than two hours and, as Moffitt said, raised more questions than provided answers. The system is a mess, and that’s based in fact: An audit that showed millions in wasted money, the resignation of the ABC commission chair, software problems, and distribution issues. One proud prohibitionist, in addressing the problems, found time for a moment of levity, saying, “I beg you that we please get it right.” A real knee-slapper, that is.

Look out candy ‘cause here come the kids, all dressed up for their Little Monster’s Parade! (photos by MEP/The Eagle/CF Media and provided)

The Chamber float, complete with the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus!

“Pinkie” and “Pac Man” showed up to help out Peak Resources crew at the Little Monsters Parade last Friday. They are: Pinkie (aka Sarah Chambers, Marketing Liaison); Pac Man (aka Robin Long, Administrative Director); Macie Deaton (HR Coordinator); Jessica Hickson (Activities Director); and Jessica Sain (Director of Nursing).

The Déjà Vu band from Cherryville kicks out the jams at the Scary-Ville event in Downtown Cherryville.

PARADES From Page 1 to 5,000 attend that event throughout the night, as many also came to hear the Déjà Vu band, who are always a crowd-pleaser and a big draw for Cherryville folks. “This is our second Scary-Ville,” noted Tackett, adding, “There was a gap in 2020 due to COVID. That is when the Hocus Pocus Parade was born. It was put on instead of Scary-Ville since it was canceled due to COVID. We only planned to do the Parade last year but after a huge reaction from our senior citizens, we decided to keep the parade and add it to our Halloween Line Up.” Mary Beth said the Hocus Pocus Parade was not meant to stay part of the events line up but was instead “…created to bring some fun to our community during such a hard year. We mostly did the parade to reach the kids and bring some family fun to our citizens. It did that and much more. We had a huge reaction from our Senior citizens. We got calls saying that they haven’t seen a parade in years. Or they loved that an event was brought to their front doors because it is so hard for them to get out and get around at our normal events. Both years of the Hocus Pocus Parade, while riding on the floats, you can see our seniors dancing in their doorways with walkers or waving from windows and porches. It really touched the event team’s heart that this wasn’t just something that made kids happy it had a reach big enough to bring our seniors joy as well. So, with that being said the Hocus Pocus Parade will stick around until our seniors grow tired of it.” Tackett noted this year’s Hocus Pocus Parade was, in her words, “just amazing!” “We had more participation with floats from local businesses such as Modern Security and But-

We hope in the future we will have even more participation by local businesses.” As for the Little Monsters Parade, Tackett said it wasn’t as big this year as in year’s past as many

of the younger school kids couldn’t get involved. However, those who did make it out this year were treated to a great horde of candy they could stock up on for Halloween, just in case pickings might get “slim.”

Helping Frankenstein (center: aka Gary Dellinger) hand out the goodies this year were Gene Dellinger and Felicia Bowman.
