NC American Legion Baseball Hall of Fame ceremony March 5 Two Cherryville inductions gives town 15 of its own in auspicious Hall of Fame by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

On Saturday, March 5, two Cherryville men will be inducted into the 2021 class of the North Carolina American Legion Baseball Hall of Fame. The two are Post 100 American Legion Commander Mike Robinson and former umpire Sam Homesley, also a member of Post 100. Returning once again to

the “City Where Life Blossoms”, the 2022 ceremony will be held at the Cherryville Post 100 Legion Hut and starts at 6:30 p.m. According to Area IV Baseball Commissioner Jerry Hudson the inductees are, in addition to Mr. Robinson and Mr. Homesley, David Ellis, of Post 102 (Ahoskie), and Jerald D. “Danny” Rollins, of Post 39 (Greenville). Also to be recognized are North Carolina Players of the Year, Will Blackburn (Junior Player of the Year), and Zach Wilson (Senior Player of the Year). Last year, Mr. Hudson noted that he and Mark Cauble, and Terry Melton were all inducted at the American



Legion Convention in Raleigh. Said Jerry, “For many years the AL Hall of Fame has been at many different Posts throughout the state

as hosted by those various Posts.” Longtime sports writer Richard Walker’s web site, www.CarolinasSportsHub. com, noted that, “…Homes-

Mask mandates are stripping away across the state as school districts vote to end nearly two-year requirements that students

in grades K through 12 remain masked for up to eight hours a day. As of Monday Feb 21, 2022, fewer than 50 school systems in North Carolina currently have mask mandates standing and this week even more are eliminating the requirement them, according to the N.C. School Board’s Association. See MASK, Page 2

MASK From Page 1 Wake County Public School System, the school district surrounding North Carolina’s capital city of Raleigh, announced that its indoor mask mandate will end effective Feb. 25, 2022. Meantime, Wayne County school boards voted to lift mask mandates effective Friday, Feb. 18, and Lee County’s mandate is lifted effective on as of Feb. 21. School officials say their decisions were based on infection rates, which have been falling since mid-January, but also based the latest announcement from the state Department of Health and Human Services and Gov. Roy Cooper. On Thursday, Feb. 17, Cooper called for an end to local mask mandates for schools and local governments, though state lawmakers seemingly forced his hand. Also on Feb. 17, the N.C. General Assembly passed the Free the Smiles Act that gives parents, not the state, the right to decide whether their child wears a mask to school. The House ultimately passed the measure, 76-42. The Senate passed it 29-17. Cooper’s announcement calling for easing mask restrictions was made just hours before the measure was to face committee discussions and votes. “I am glad the governor is coming to our position on this,” House Speaker Tim Moore, R-Cleveland, told lawmakers, referencing letters sent to Cooper. “These decisions should be based on science, but not political science.” Cooper, a Democrat, cited declining COVID19 cases, vaccines, and boosters, expanded testing, available PPE, and treatments. Kody Kinsley, state health secretary, echoed

Cooper’s comments in the news conference Thursday. If trends continue to improve, starting March 7 schools and other low-risk settings can consider moving to voluntary masking at the discretion of local authorities. Children and staff in the Wake County School System have been wearing masks since March 2020. Amy Marshall, who heads the Carolina Teachers Alliance, sent a letter Thursday on behalf of the alliance school staff and parent affiliate membership to Wake County schools Superintendent Cathy Moore and system board members, urging them to lift the mask mandate immediately. “The legislature revealed the will of the people on the school mask mandate issue,” she said. In the letter, Marshall urges the school board to meet before Tuesday, Feb. 22, so children and teachers return to class after the President’s Day weekend without masks. “If you drag this out, you will cause further disruptions and more learning loss,” Marshall added. “Putting out a 'teaser' the way you did will place an undue burden on WCPSS staff members, as they try to enforce your continued mask mandate.” A rally was held Feb. 16 by CTA, the American Teachers Alliance, Open-NC-US, and Wake County’s Moms for Liberty to end the mask mandate in Wake County Schools. Chatham, Cumberland, Johnston, Moore, Henderson, Davidson, Union, Sampson counties are among those that have already moved to mask-optional policies, with Edgecombe, Northampton, and Franklin counties scheduled to consider mask optional policies in the coming weeks. Pushback from parents, teachers, and other community members has caused legislators and gov-

and 2005.” His web site further noted, “The induction of Homesley and Robinson gives Cherryville 15 members of the N.C. American Legion Baseball Hall of Fame; Ezra V. Moss, Sr. (1971 class), Edmond Sullivan (1972), John R. Smith (1974), John Mosteller (1977), Aaron Moss (1981), Ronald 'Scoop’ Kiser (1984), Hugh Putnam (1986), Hugh 'Buzz’ Peeler (1988), Bill Abernethy (1998), Rocky Bennett (2006), Bobby Reynolds (2007), David 'Benny’ Blanton (2008) and Jerry Hudson (2020) were previous inductees.” Hudson added that Sam, “…umpired high school (and) American Legion baseball for 37 years”, adding that for “…over 25 years” Sam and he umpired together high school, American Legion games, State Championships, and Regionals.” Jerry said, “Bob Beason is Chairman of Hall of Fame Committee. Members are himself (Area IV Baseball Commissioner Hudson), and Mark Cauble, the NC State Baseball

From Page 1 Homesley also was a longtime high school and Legion baseball umpire who worked two Legion regional tournaments and 12 N.C. state tournaments.” Walker’s site continued, “Robinson is a Cherryville High graduate who was a truck driver for 35 years. A Vietnam veteran, Robinson has been Cherryville Post 100 commander the past eight years during which time he has worked every Post 100 baseball game.” Walker also went into more detail concerning the number of times the event has been hosted by Post 100. Wrote Walker, “It’ll be the sixth time the event has been held in Cherryville and the eighth time in Gaston County. Cherryville hosted in 1977, 1982, 1985, 1987 and 1993, and Gastonia hosted in 1971 ernors to take a step back and revisit the guidance on mask mandates for children. Critics say wearing masks not only hurts children’s learning abilities but also affects them socially and mentally. Cooper had until Feb. 27 to sign or veto the bill but indicated that he will not support moving those decision rights to parents, calling it unwise and irresponsible. “Are we going to let people pick and choose which public health rules they are going to follow?” Cooper asked members of the media in the Thursday (Feb. 17) press conference.

time to pick up the kids, then run by the library, get registered, and load up with lots of great titles. We already have some fabulous events lined up, including the return of Soap Bubble Circus (Monday, June 6 at 10:30 a.m.) as well as offerings from some of our favorite community partners like the Schiele Museum.

favorite songs of his. ‘Summer Reading’ for all ages will run until Saturday, Aug. 27. Mark your calendars! The other wonderful news for this week is the return of the big book sale put on by our Gaston County Friends of the Library. As you may remember, the sale was held virtually in the fall of 2020 and the tough decision was made not to have a sale at all in 2021. We are thrilled that not only is the sale back, in-person, but that it will be held over two weeks this year AND online! As we wrote a few weeks ago, there are major renovations taking place at our Main Branch in Gastonia. One of the areas under construction is the auditorium, the very large room that is used for events, programs, and – you got it – the book sale.

set up a weight room where Cooper spent hours lifting on his own over the off season, gaining 30 pounds and growing three inches taller. “It was very rewarding to see his commitment and the results were building his confidence as well,” said Jim, who added that with a 3.8 grade point average he has worked as hard academically as he has on the football field. “He will be attending college on an academic scholarship which ensures he is set for his path to graduation and it won't depend on his athletic career,” said Jayna. Jim noted a few weeks ago there were lots of tears to go around at the Sloan house as their oldest son, Colton, was able to Facetime them from Army basic training. “He didn’t want to talk to Jayna or myself, and even shortened his time talking to his wife, Kylie that day. Colton only wanted to talk to Cooper about his college journey and listen to him talk about his recent campus visits. Cooper had made his decision and was able to tell Colton while their youngest brother, Eli was watching that he had decided to commit to Defiance College in

Defiance, Ohio. I still remember vividly Colton yelling to his platoon mates his brother was going to play college football.” Cooper said his family would be close while at Defiance and be able to watch him play often. The Sloans know that, as parents hearing their kids be excited and supportive of each other is about as good as it gets, and knowing they have another four years of watching him do what he loves is also as good as it gets. For Cooper, it all feels, as he said, “…really great! It’s been a dream of mine since I was young.” Coach Harrill said of Cooper, “He is one of the hardest working student athletes to come through CHS in some time. He never complains, always gives one-hundred percent effort!” Principal of CHS, Shawn Hubers said of the two signees, “Kadin and Cooper are exemplary student athletes. The way both young men conduct themselves in the classroom and on the athletic field is something to be admired. They will be missed at Cherryville High School.”

His dad, Jim, noted Cooper’s commitment to his therapy and recovery was “a lot of fun to watch” in spite of what he saw originally on the MRI. A big challenge happened when the family moved to Cherryville, after being a big part of the football program in his school in Illinois. “He quickly acclimated despite the unknown here in Cherryville,” said Jayna and Jim, adding that “…alongside Kadin Beaver the two of them became the leaders of the program. As Cooper has done everywhere he has been he developed friends stayed focused on his goal and turned the move into a great experience.” They said between his sophomore and junior year they

Robinson calls for accountability, discipline in K-12 public schools by DAVID BASS Carolina Journal

Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson is calling for broad reforms to the K-12 education system in North Carolina. Robinson's comments came during a standing committee meeting on Monday, Feb. 21, that touched on themes of accountability, discipline, and restoring common sense. Robinson, a Republican, specifically called out a lack of discipline in public school classrooms, the presence of political issues and agenda-driven indoctrination, missing transparency, and lack of rigor in the curriculum to train students for the job market. The state’s first black lieutenant governor took aim at administrators who prioritize social engineering above the basics of reading, writing, and mathematics. “There is no reason to be sitting in an elementary school class and have a teacher talking to children about social engineering, when the child can’t spell ‘social’ or ‘engineering,’” said Robinson. “During the Civil War, we had sixth-

MARK ROBINSON (photo by Maya Reagan, Carolina Journal) grade students who were learning Greek and Latin. Now we can’t even get our children to read on grade level with all the money and technology we have today. It’s a sad state.” Robinson’s comments came during the latest meeting of the N.C. House Select Committee on an Education System for North Carolina’s Future. The group has been tasked with spending the next two years researching the best approaches in the world of K-12 education and making recommendations. In remarks to the committee, Robinson cited recent end-of-grade test scores

for the 2020-21 school year to show how public schools are underperforming. Those results showed that over half of K-12 students passed state exams. “The question we need to ask ourselves in North Carolina is why we spend half of our state budget on education and our numbers look like that? That is abysmal. That is failure,” he said. Robinson also set his sights on lack of discipline, control, and safety in the classroom. He cited one story from a teacher who is a 24-year veteran of the profession but plans to quit due to discipline and safety issues in the classroom.

He referenced statistics showing that N.C. high school classrooms have nearly double the crime rate compared to the state as a whole. “Teachers have got to stop going to school in fear for themselves, and the same goes for our students,” Robinson said. “We see the chaos in our schools and part of the reason why is because we’re no longer providing the discipline in those walls that we need to.” Robinson decried the disconnect between K-12 public education and the demands of the modern work force. He pointed to the arrival of companies like Boom and Apple to North Carolina, but said schools are inadequately preparing students for these jobs. For solutions, Robinson recommended enhancing apprenticeship and trackbased education that directly prepares students for jobs. He also pushed for the expansion of school choice through growing the Opportunity Scholarship Program, increasing access to charter and magnet schools, and boosting homeschooling.

North Carolina ABC creates additional board to address bureaucracy problems by JOHN TRUMP Carolina Journal

The N.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control system has a new commissioner. It gets continued reassurance from its boards and warehouse operator that they’ll get it right and, to that end, the newly created ABC Advisory Committee meant to push them to do so. Yet, in myriad ways, it’s mostly still the old N.C. ABC system. Liquor held by local boards – the source from merchants and consumers alike – remains in short supply, a problem more pronounced in the larger counties, such as Forsyth and Wake, and boards are still struggling to learn a new ordering system implemented this summer. Lawmakers have taken steps toward modernizing a system now pushing 90 years old, but issues inherent with a state-controlled monopoly and store managers indifferent to customers’ wants and needs persist. Further, more efficient systems in Virginia – also state-controlled – and South Carolina – which is private – push N.C. residents across the border for rare products and even easily found products such as Jack Daniel’s and Jameson.

BEAVER From Page 1 during the season feeding the team.” CHS Athletic Director Scott Harrill said, “Kadin is an amazing young man who is on the Student Leadership Council for Athletics. He is one of the best leaders CHS has produced.” Principal of CHS Shawn Hubers agreed, adding about the two, “Kadin and Cooper are exemplary student athletes. The way both young men conduct themselves in the classroom and on the athletic field is something to be admired. They will be missed at Cherryville High School.” Kadin’s parents are Buster and Ashlye Beaver, and his brother, Zane Beaver, is a baseball player who played at CHS and for Post 100 American Legion. His grandparents are Flip and Carol Dow of Gastonia and the late Lyman and Brenda Kay Beaver. The Dows commented, “We are very excited for him! He knows football as he has played since age five.” Kadin said has played football for CHS for four years as quarterback, a long

“It comes down to the county manager doing his or her job,” says Jason Ruth, vice president of N.C. Bar Owners Association. In New Hanover County, he says, board managers have worked to get direct shipments from distillers, “and that’s what saved us.” Some customers aren’t so fortunate “It’s hit or miss across the state,” says Ruth, who owns a couple of successful neighborhood bars around Wilmington. In the ABC store on S.W. Cary Parkway, smack-dab in one of the more affluent areas in the state, shelves are bereft of most Scotch brands and any bourbon beyond that not highly marketed and recognizable No other state, even most of the 16 others under state control, Ruth says, is having a similar experience. “I can drive across the border in South Carolina and find anything I need.” N.C. ABC says it’s committed to fixing ongoing problems with supply and the state’s warehouses, operated by LB&B Associates. In March 2021, the ABC Commission voted unanimously to recommend See ABC, Page 6 snapper, tight end, and as a middle and an outside linebacker. On his signing, he noted, “I am really excited about signing for them and look forward to playing at Methodist and being a Monarch!” Dad, Buster said, “We’re really proud of him and with his decision. When he toured the campus he loved it and that helped with his decision quite a bit.” Said mom, Ashlye, “He has played football since he was five years old. In March 2016 he was the recipient of Carolinas Pop Warner Little Scholars scholarship in the amount of $500, which was placed into a reserve account and will be sent to Methodist upon his graduation from CHS.” She continued, “Kadin has always been a leader on and off the field; he has never been afraid to put the extra work in to achieve his goals. Kadin has never met a stranger. He sees the good in everyone and has a heart of gold. Kadin is a great athlete but will be the first to tell you that without God in his life, succeeding in football would not be possible. We are super excited we get to continue watching him play the game he loves!”

Of course, it centage of helps to have chapChristians ters and verses so regularly we can track alongread one side during Bible chapter of studies, but consider Proverbs a what this means for JHOAN ALFARO day? Prova book like ProvStudent Pastor, erbs is dierbs. First Baptist Church, vided into As a child I was Cherryville more than always confused by 20 chapreading more than ters, with just one proverb a day. Let those chapters each having alone one chapter of Provover a dozen verses. There erbs a day. Each proverb are many trivia facts about seemed so profound that the Bible that often go un- it merited meditating over told. one proverb at a time. Of For instance, did you course, reading one verse know that when the Bible a day is also silly because was written there were in doing so we rip things no chapters or verses? In completely out of context every historical instance and context is everything, a story was simply being dear friend.

I say some crazy things sometimes. I’ve been told I have a funny way of saying the word: pizza. This is because of my cultural context. As some of you may know, I was born in Colombia, South America. From time to time some of you will overhear me speaking Spanish and it never fails to surprise me how many people do not know of my Spanish background. As with all cultures, Spanish folks have their own proverbs (refranes). Most of them do not translate well. For example: “The shrimp that falls asleep the current will take him. “Warned soldier will not die in battle.” Now, in America we have proverbs of our own. For example: “The

early bird gets the worm”; “Don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater” These proverbs are part of our cultures and some of them are even rooted and grounded in Scripture. My father, now a pastor, was a lawyer, and my mother a licensed psychologist. Now, I am the middle spawn of these two geniuses and as you can imagine there was one specific proverb an infinitely patient mother constantly used to warn me. She would say: “Jhoan Sebastian, don’t go looking for what you haven’t lost.” God’s word teaches us that both the flesh and the spirt are searching. You see, God’s word reminds us that if we seek righteousness, we will find

life. If we knock, ask, and seek for righteousness – we can find life, wisdom, and peace in abundance. Dear friend, please do not miss this. The same is true of evil. If we knock, ask, and seek after lawlessness we will find despair, confusion, and destruction. This is why God says you must be fully armored up and aware of the roaring lion who seeks to devour, to destroy, and to sift you like wheat. As Christians we are tasked with walking in the Spirit. We are called to be holy. We are to ask for wisdom from our Father who freely gives it. We do not have to perish if we will instead be full of knowledge. So do not wait for a warm fuzzy feeling, a

horoscope, a sign, a color, a number, or a symbol in the sky. God has given us all knowledge concerning life and Godliness! His Word is profitable that you might be fulfilled. Jesus promised to sanctify you by His Word under the guardianship of the Holy Spirt. Your life does not have to be full of despair, confusion and destruction. So, whether you start reading a proverb a day or a chapter of Proverbs a day – I hope you will, in God’s grace and through His word, seek righteousness, for there you will find life in abundance. Have you read your Bible today? (Prov. 21:21; 2 Pet. 1:3; Matt. 7:7; Eph. 6; and Hos. 4:6)

Don’t Miss Out Cherryville Area My husband and I went out for breakfast at First Watch. They were packed and we were put on theIr waiting list. They told me I would receive a text when the table was ready. I gave them my number, but never checked my phone. Instead, I was busy doing something else that kept me from looking forward to being seated DANYALE PATTERSON for the meal! Pay Attention to the Messages I was so distracted that morning, I never saw the following messages: • You’re next in line. Please head to the host now. • Your table is ready. We will hold it for 2 minutes. • We have removed you from the waitlist. Sorry we missed you. I hate to admit it, but I was distracted by complaining about a situation that I didn’t like at the workplace. We almost missed out, because I wasn’t paying attention to the instructions I was given! Just like that scenario, I believe we can lose opportunities and blessings that God wants to give us because we are not focused on what he has said. Isaiah 28:23 (NIV) states, “Listen and hear my voice; pay attention and hear what I say.” Complaining is a huge distraction in our lives, because it causes us to be preoccupied on what we don’t like, instead of the wonderful things that God is doing in our lives. Fortunately, my husband asked me if I had checked my phone. He said that he saw my phone light up, and he was right. Just like my husband was trying to get me to pay attention, the Holy Spirit is always gently reminding us what we should be doing and what the Father has said. John 14:26 (NIV) says, “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” Grace Although I was taken off the list, I went up to the hostess, apologized for missing the text and she seated us. We had a great time and a delicious breakfast. Thank God for his mercy and grace! God longs to be good to us and he wants us to get it right. If we repent and obey his directions, he will help us. 2 Chronicles 30:9b (ESV) says, “For the LORD your God is gracious and merciful and will not turn away his face from you, if you return to him.” PRAY THIS PRAYER: “Dear Lord - You are worthy of all my praise. You are good and your mercy endures forever. Forgive me for not being attentive to your directions. Help me to focus on your words and obey them. I also ask that you help me to be alert and watchful, so that I will not miss out on what you want to do in me, for me, and through me. Father, I want to please you in everything I say and do. In Jesus name I pray - Amen.” Danyale Patterson is co-founder of Enlighten Ministries, a 501c3 organization with her husband Brandon Patterson.

Basketball Ironmen end season with a Sectional first round loss Team finishes 16-9 overall; 6-6 in SPC 1A/2A by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

It wasn’t the way they wanted things to end; is it ever? The CHS Ironmen varsity boys lost in the first round of the Sectional playoffs on Tuesday night, Feb. 22, to the Maroon Devils of Swain County by a score of 78-100 in a tough matchup at Swain County. Still, the youngsters and their tough coaching squad finished the season at 16 and 9 overall, and at 6 and 6 in conference play, all the while working together to nail down a stellar 400th career win for their coach and mentor, Scott Harrill. The team loses four

ABC From Page 4 the state award a new 10year 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 ontime 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. A new software system was implemented in early July and, LB&B attorney Ben Thompson told lawmakers this fall, 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.

The 2021-2022 CHS Ironmen varsity men’s basketball team (L-R) front row (seated) are: Khanye Kennedy, Nate Bookout, Chance Hunt, Carson Kelly, Numarius Good, Carter Spangler, Landon Hahn, and Darrien Floyd. Standing (L-R) are: Manager David Hargraves, Assistant Coach Dr. Bud Black, Assistant Coach Dennis Tate, Cooper Sloan, Gavin Cease, Ethan Honeyman, Jack Mulvey, Collin Huss, Manager Will Gates, Head Coach and CHS A.D., Scott Harrill, and Assistant Coach Antonio Griggs.

Powell) amazing seniors this year in the persons of Gavin Cease, Jack Mulvey, Cooper Sloan, and Carter

Spangler, but the youngsters – four juniors and four sophomores – coming up behind them are no less

talented; no less committed to racking up more wins on the boards come next hoops season.

In March, Gov. Roy Cooper appointed Hank Bauer chairman of the N.C. ABC Commission. Bauer replaced A.D. Zander Guy Jr., who abruptly resigned in September. Bauer, a news release says, is former general manager at Empire Distributors, where he also served as the director of sales and on-premise director. He takes over during a turbulent time for the ABC, as the state warehouse struggles to get liquor into staterun stores, now highlighted by empty shelves and outof-stock signs. The ABC, in responding to the problems and spurned by recent legislation, recently created an ABC Board Advisory Committee, which plans to quarterly to provide recommendations to the commission related to allocated products and other distribution-related issues. It includes nine members, but, outside the distillers, it’s short on people who actually buy spirituous liquor to sell to the public. The board’s members,

a news release says, are: Pete Barger, Southern Distilling Co.; Brian Call, Call Family Distillers; Michael Yates, Republic National Distributing Co.; Meredith McCormack, Beam Suntory of Wake Forest; Greg Stallings, ABC Commission; Walter Harris, chairman of the Chatham County ABC board in Pittsboro; Joel Keith of the Wake County ABC board; Jason Smith, N.C. Restaurant and Lodging Association; and Robert Fleming, Fleming Brothers Farm. Ruth called the idea of creating a board without a plethora of permit holders “absurd.” “You can’t have a successful situation without having a permit holder on there,” says Ruth, who intimated the board itself will contribute to an already bloated bureaucracy. Spokesman Jeff Strickland told Carolina Journal the ABC Commission asked that the local ABC boards form this advisory committee to enhance and

streamline feedback the commission gets from local ABC boards. The ABC doesn’t want to tell the boards how to run the committee. “It is the commission’s goal for this committee to be independently organized by the ABC boards, with a focus on providing reports and recommendations to the commission about how to improve distribution or other board-related topics,” Strickland said. “The initial advisory committee members were selected by their fellow ABC board representatives who were in attendance. To ensure statewide representation, the general managers split into four groups along geographic lines and selected representatives for those regions. It will be up to these individuals to coordinate the next meeting, determine the plan for filling out the committee membership structure, and make sure all 171 ABC boards have input and are part of the process.”

The 20-seed Ironmen had to travel to 13-seed Swain County to play the Maroon Devils. The senior-heavy Swain County hoops squad came out with some hot shooting and good speed, but the Ironmen were able to keep things close (15-22) as the first quarter ended. Sadly, the CHS men never led in the game since getting behind in that first quarter of play. Junior Carson Kelly was four-for-four at the freethrow line and ended up with 25 points in the game while teammate Landon Hahn had 15 points in the game, and was two-for-two at the foul line. Senior Jack Mulvey had 11 points in this game, was 3-for-five at the free-throw line; junior Numarius Good had nine points in the game; senior Gavin Cease had six points and eight rebounds, and sophomore Khanye Kennedy had two points. In the words of Coach Harrill, “The Ironmen ran into a hot shooting Swain team that played their best game of the year according to the Maroon Devils head coach and had four players score more than 20 points each. The Ironmen gave a great effort after getting down early. Cherryville battled back and tied the score just before half. Car-

son Kelly led the Ironmen with 25 points, Landon Hahn had another stellar game. Senior Jack Mulvey played good on both ends of the court. Senior Gavin Cease came out strong and played well. Carter Spangler, another senior, gave great minutes and was stellar on the defensive end. Senior Cooper Sloan, who improved tremendously all year, battled all night in the paint.” Harrill continued, “This season has been a great year. We played with tremendous heart and effort all year. I feel like the kids gave everything they had every night. I am so thankful for the seniors and their hard work. These young men will be missed greatly. Jack, Gavin, Carter, and Cooper are four outstanding young men that will have great impacts in society in a positive way. I am proud to call each of them an Ironmen for life! The passion they play with is amazing. For the returning players, I know the desire and effort to win is there daily. What a great joy it was for us coaches to have the privilege to coach all 13 of these young men. Once again, Ironmen basketball made us proud!” (Additional information/stats by Danny Eaker & Susan Powell)

Can COVID-19 Cause Shingles? Dear Savvy Senior, Can you direct me to some really cheap wireless smartphone plans for seniors who don’t use much data? I use my smartphone primarily for texting and talking but need some data for checking my email and a few other things when I’m away from Wi-Fi. Right now, I pay $30 per month but am looking for a better deal. Senior Scrimper Dear Scrimper, There are several super cheap wirelesses providers I can recommend for older smartphone users who are looking to save money by paring down their cell phone plan. Here are three of the cheapest options available that you can switch to without sacrificing the quality of your service. Cheapest Wireless Plans For extremely light smartphone data users, the very cheapest wireless plan available today is through Tello (Tello. com), which lets you build your own plan based on your needs or budget.

For as little as $6 per month you can get unlimited texting, 100 minutes of talk time and 500 megabytes (MB) of high-speed data. Increases in talk time or data can be added in $1 increments. Tello uses the T-Mobile network and gives you the option to bring your existing phone or purchase a new device, while keeping your same phone number if you wish. If you want to keep your phone, it must be unlocked. Just enter your phone’s ID (press *#06# on your keypad to get it) on Tello’s website to make sure that it’s compatible with the network. Another super cheap plan to consider is the annual prepaid plan offered through Boost Mobile (BoostMobile. com). For only $100 per year (or $8.33 per month) this plan provides unlimited talk, text and 1 gigabyte (GB) of 5G or 4G data each month. If you need more data, their $150 annual plan (or $12.50/month) gets you 5 GB. Boost Mobile uses the T-Mobile and

AT&T networks and lets you use your existing phone (if compatible) or buy a new one. And a third option to look into is Mint Mobile (, which is recommended by Consumer Reports and has one of the best values for a cheap plan. Mint offers a $15 per month plan (plus taxes & fees) that provides unlimited talk and text, and 4 GB of 5G/4G data each month. They too use the T-Mobile network and will let you use your existing phone (if compatible) or buy a new one. Lifeline Program If your income is low enough, another option you should check into is the Lifeline Assistance Program. This is a federal program that provides a $9.25 monthly subsidy that could go towards your phone or internet service. To qualify, you’ll need you’re receiving certain ernment benefits such SNAP (food stamps),

to show that types of govas Medicaid, SSI, public

housing assistance, veterans’ pension and survivors’ benefit, or live on federally recognized Tribal lands. Or, if your annual household income is at or below 135 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines – $17,388 for one person, or $23,517 for two – you’re also eligible. To check your eligibility or apply, visit If you do qualify, contact a wireless provider in your area that participates in the Lifeline program and sign up for service with them. You can also ask your current company to apply your Lifeline benefit to a service you are already getting, if it offers the benefit. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
