CHS football Ironmen run ‘7 on 7’ drills at Rudisill Stadium by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

It will soon be time for CHS gridiron fans to say, like the television commercial lyrics belt out, “Are you ready for some football?” With that in mind, Ironmen football head coach Tim Pruitt said the young men of the CHS 2021-2022 gridiron squad took to the

field recently at Rudisill Stadium to work on some 7 on 7 drills with a couple of other teams. Said Coach Pruitt, “On July 13, we had two 7 on 7’s at home. On Tuesday we competed against Lincolnton and Polk County, and on Thursday, we played against East Burke. We had 20 players participate.” Coach Pruitt noted that See CHS, Page 6

Gaston COVID cases, hospitalizations rise as Delta variant spreads GASTONIA – After more than a month of low COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations, last week Gaston County began to see a rapid acceleration of both as the Delta variant begins to spread in the community. The Delta variant is now estimated to account for more than four out of every five COVID-19 cases in the United States, and is causing severe disease and death in unvaccinated individuals. “The Delta variant is much more infectious and transmissible than the original strain,” Gaston County Public Health Medical Director Dr. Tia Robertson said. “The viral load builds up quickly, making it more contagious earlier on in the course of the disease.” Robertson urged anyone experiencing COVID-like symptoms to get tested at one of the numerous pharmacies, clinics or medical facilities across the county – particularly if they are unvaccinated. Some symptoms with the Delta variant may be more likely than others, with a loss of

taste and smell a less common symptom than headaches, runny noses and sore throats, according to data from studies conducted in Great Britain. In Gaston County the percent positive rate has now surpassed 5 percent for the first time since early May. Indeed, the number of Gaston County residents hospitalized due to COVID has climbed into the double digits for the first time in nearly two months. Additionally, the average age of those hospitalized has been trending younger, thanks in part to higher vaccination percentages among the county’s 65-and-older population. “More than a year after trials began for COVID vaccinations, we have yet to see significant adverse reactions,” Gaston County Board of Commissioners Chairman Tom Keigher said. “I respect folks’ decisions to not take the vaccine, but I do think there should be more consideration for others. We very well could end up back to where we’re wearing masks again if we don’t put an end to this while we have the chance.” See COVID, Page 9

FIRE CHIEF/CITY MANAGER JEFF CASH equipment, apparatus, call volume, training, and lowering their ISO rating to a Level 2. “During his tenure as City Manager, he has done a remarkable job of leading the City of Cherryville into projects that promote overall growth, updating critical infrastructure, and creating a stronger workforce.” Assistant Fire Chief Wofford, noted the media release, “…began his ca-


reer with the Cherryville Fire Department in February of 1989 as a Junior Firefighter, (then was) hired full-time in 1993 as a Driver/Engineer, promoted to Captain/ Fire Marshal in 1998, and to Assistant Fire Chief in 2010.” AFC Wofford holds the following certifications: Firefighter I & II, Hazardous Materials Level I, Driver Operator, ERT, EVD, Fire and Life Safety

City’s Main Street Program earns national accreditation Program recognized by Main Street America For the sixth year in a row, Main Street America has named the Cherryville Main Street Program as a nationally accredited Main Street program. The coveted designation is Main Street America’s highest status and recog-

nizes that Cherryville’s program meets rigorous performance standards. Nationally, just over half of participating communities receive this designation. To earn the prized designation, Cherryville’s program demonstrated a strong commitment to comprehensively revitalizing Cherryville’s downtown commercial district. And, Cherryville’s Main Street

Program meets strict requirements for building a strong organizational structure, maintaining active public-private partnerships, tracking progress, and preserving historic buildings. “We’ve worked diligently to meet the national standards,” said David Day, Cherryville’s Downtown Director. “We’re excited about the future. We’re revitalizing Main Street and at

the same time keeping our hometown’s historic character. Our downtown will be a catalyst for the economic growth for our entire community.” Cherryville Mayor H.L. Beam enthusiastically pointed to the many improvements already in place downtown as evidence of the program’s success. But Mayor Beam was equally See CMS, Page 5

Guy Wallace

Jan Summer

GASTONIA – Guy Andrew Wallace passed away on Monday, July 19, 2021 at Covenant Village, Gastonia, with his family surrounding him in love. He battled Parkinson’s Disease with related dementia for a number of years. Guy was born Jan. 25, 1943, in Lincoln County. His parents were the late Charles and Rena Wallace of Cherryville. He graduated from Lenoir – Rhyne University. He spent two years in the U.S. Army and served with the Top Security Unit of Headquarters Company, Fort Myer, VA, stationed in The Pentagon, Washington, DC. He spent the next 30 years as an accountant for Public Service Co. of NC, now Dominion Energy in Gastonia. Guy attended West Avenue Presbyterian Church, Gastonia, for 53 years until it closed in 2018. He then found a church home at First Presbyterian Church of Belmont. He was a very committed Christian who served his church as Elder, Deacon, Treasurer, Youth Leader, and on a number of committees in the church and with The Presbytery of Western NC. He was an unassuming man who loved to work in his yard and on the family farms. Guy volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, Crisis Assistance Ministry, United Way and was dedicated to the Red Cross Blood donor program, giving over 17 gallons of blood. He was an ardent collector of items such as seashells, coins, and stamps as well as other eclectic items. He came to enjoy Western Square Dancing with the many friends he made and many square dance travels. After retirement, Guy and his wife traveled in the US and in foreign countries. He was a faithful participant in Rock Steady Boxing for Parkinson’s Disease. Guy is survived by his wife of 56 years, Paula Hastings Wallace; son, Alec Wallace (Tammy) of Gastonia; and daughter, Sonya Snowdon (Warren) of Charlotte; grandchildren: William Wallace and Ava, Cooper and Marley Snowdon; brother, Forrest Wallace (Sandra) of Cherryville; sister, Patricia Wofford (Kenneth) of Newton; sister-in-law, Sylvia Sellers (Charles) of Gastonia; and nieces, the Rev. Lou Ann Sellers (Thomas Herwig), Nancy Roberts (David), Jeleta Auten (Mike), Landis Taylor (Gabe) and their children. A special thank you is extended to Rachel Brown and the Hospice providers of Lincoln County, as well as the caring staff at Covenant Village. A memorial service was held at First Presbyterian Church of Belmont with the Rev’s. Sam Warner and Daria Ragan on Sunday, July 25 at 3 p.m. The family received friends one hour before the service in the church Gathering Area. Burial was private in the Carpenter – Wise cemetery at the family farm on Aderholdt Rd., Lincolnton. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to: Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region, 7845 Little Ave., Charlotte, NC, 28226; The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, Grand Central Station, P.O. Box 4777, NY, NY, 10163; or to The First Presbyterian Church of Belmont, 102 S. Central Ave., Belmont, NC, 28012. A Simple Service Burial and Cremation of Gastonia served the Wallace family.

AUSTIN, TX – On June 25, 2021 Eva Janice Summer escaped the bodily restraints that had been so at odds with her adventurous and spirited nature, free to soar again. Jan was born Feb. 13, 1944 in Cherryville, N.C., but spent the rest of her life exploring the many worlds and adventures that life presented. A brilliant lawyer, faithful friend, loving partner and loyal family member, Jan lived her life joyfully, responsibly and with humility. Her home, whether in Austin, Houston or in the mountains of North Carolina, was full of good food, music, arts and crafts, acceptance and joy. And, of course, at least one spoiled cat. From a family of builders, she seemed happiest when the smell of sawdust was in the air. It was not unusual to find Jan designing and overseeing home construction or renovation projects all resulting in colorful and imaginative dwellings. A graduate of Wake Forest University and the University of Texas Law School, Jan spent the majority of her career in public service. She first worked in the office of North Carolina Governor Terry Sanford, joining his initiative to improve public education. The opportunity to work with this dynamic, reform-minded leader had a lasting influence on Jan’s future involvement in politics and public service. After law school, Jan served as law clerk to Chief Justice Joe Greenhill, of the Supreme Court of Texas. She began her real estate practice with the law firm of Daugherty, Kuperman, Golden & Morehead in Austin. Her private practice was followed by several years with the University of Texas Office of General Counsel where her real estate skills proved invaluable in negotiating leases and managing University properties across Texas. In 1993 Jan became the founding director of The

Center for Public Pol¬icy Dispute Resolution at the University of Texas School of Law. There she mentored community leaders, aspiring arbitrators and elected officials in their roles as facilitators for consensus. She served in that capacity for 17 years, retiring in 2010. As a founding member of the Center for Women in law at UT, Jan played an important role in providing scholarships for aspiring young women law students. She was a contributing member of Leadership Austin and of the Women’s Political Caucus. Jan was elected by her peers to the Board of the Austin Bar Association, where she served with distinction. Jan’s world travels started with her mother and her insatiable wanderlust continued throughout her life. Many friends and family members still enjoy sharing tales of their numerous travel adventures at home and abroad with Jan. After her retirement, Jan’s love of handmade objects led her to enroll in many classes at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. She studied wood shop and drawing, but her favorite craft, working with clay, became a big part of her life. Many lucky friends hold dear the colorful and beautiful objects she created. We wish to express our gratitude to Pin Oak Caregivers who sent Remi, Oby, Trevana and Elizabeth to care tenderly for Jan as Alzheimer’s took her voice and physical agility. Hospice Plus provided her compassionate nurses, Shon and Marion. She leaves behind three brothers of Cherryville, N.C.; Larry, Garry, and Oren Summer, and their wives, nieces and nephews, two godsons, many dear friends from across the country, and her loving wife, Kay Little, of Houston. Memorial contributions in Jan’s memory may be made to: Ann Richards School Foundation, 2309 Panther Trail, Austin, Texas, 78704 (; or Travis Audubon – Chaetura Canyon, 3710 Cedar St., Box 5, Austin, TX, 78705 (Travisaudubon. org); or Penland School of Crafts ( The family will gather at a later date to celebrate Jan’s life.

GCPD charge Dallas man with possession of child porn According to a recent media release from Gaston County Police, their department has charged a Dallas man, Andrew David McCullough, with possession of child pornography. In June, GCPD officers charged McCullough, 39, of 703 E. Main St., Dallas, with two (2) felony counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a child, two (2) felony counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a child and one felony count of solicitation of a child by computer/electronic device to commit an unlawful sex act. The charges stem from a search warrant executed by Gaston County Police, with the assistance of Homeland Security Investigations and the Dallas Police Department. The search came as a

Andrew David McCullough (photo provided) result of a cybercrime tip received from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC). The tip involved the solicitation/enticement of a minor over the Internet using Facebook Messenger. During the ensuing investigation, a juvenile victim was identified, which led to the County Police ob-

taining a search warrant for the home of McCullough. During the search, County Police detectives seized electronic storage devices belonging to McCullough. Forensic examinations were performed on the devices, which led to the discovery of images and videos containing child pornography. McCullough was arrested and is currently incarcerated in the Gaston County Jail, on a $250,000 secured bond. The investigation continues and anyone with information is asked to contact Det. R.L. Smith at (704) 866-3320, or Crimestoppers at (704) 861-8000. There is no further information on this available at this time.

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. – Helen Keller

“Boozie” Dellinger – A larger-than-life Cherryville icon! I try not to use this column space to write about people, as a rule, who have affected my life. I mean, sometime I do, but I didn’t do it previously as managing editor and columnist in Kentucky when I worked there, long ago and far away; I have been reluctant to do it now. One of the main reasons I hesitate is because you can’t write about everyone who has had an impact on your life and fit every one of them in in a small column, much less do them any justice. Obviously, some of the many folks my wife and I have had the pleasure to know and come – in our own tiny little way – to love and care about in our decade and a half of living in this great little town; well, to be fair – it would take a book (a REALLY BIG one!), lots of time, and a far better writer than myself to do them right, in the telling of their stories. Time, as we who are of the older per-

By Michael Powell

suasion know, is not on our side, no matter what Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones sang from back in the day. Heck, I can’t even start naming names here in this column of all the Cherryville folks and families who have helped us out or treated us like we were duly-born Cherryville folk for fear that I will forget somebody or leave someone out who rightly deserves mentioning. While (thankfully) many of those folks are still with us (and I hope will be

for a LONG time!), sadly, many have passed and gone on to be with the Lord and are in a far better place than we are right now, things being what they are. However – that said – I do want to mention the passing of one man who is; was – larger than life and someone who will be, and is, sorely missed by all who had the honor and privilege to know him, my wife and I being among that large group. That man is; was – Carl C. “Boozie” Dellinger. I said “Boozie” was larger than life and I meant it. His whole demeanor and personae were every bit of that for he was a man of another time period; a man who said what he meant and meant what he said, but had grown, throughout his many years on this earth, to know when to speak softly and when to carry the big stick to get things done. At least, that was my understanding of him and his ways.

Now, in all fairness, I admit most of my dealings with “Boozie” revolved around the Cherryville New Year’s Shooter’s, Inc., and most of those dealings were with Rusty Wise or other members of the group, but when I did speak with him at a Shooter’s dinner or a “shoot”, he was always kind, as I noted earlier, to me and my wife. I’m stumbling for words here people because I just don’t know how to describe to y’all how I feel right now about the loss of someone whose like

we shall never see again, in this world. Never. Oh, there will be others similar to “Boozie”. Others who will be just as kind or who will leave their mark on Cherryville as he did; he has. But there will never be another “Boozie”! Never! Like many who knew him, talked with him, went on “shoots” with him and the group of New Year’s Shooters he dearly loved, or shared a laugh and a fond memory between old friends and family at one of the host dinners, we miss

him terribly. Cherryville will never be the same without you, “Boozie”. So long, “Boozie”, and thanks for all the memories. And, as many of the Shooter’s have often heard him chant, this part of their chant rings true to me still, especially now, for I believe this of Boozie, that, “...Happy is the believing soul, Christ for you has paid the whole!” Rest in Peace, Boozie, my friend; rest in God’s great Peace...

Baptist Church. My parents were loving but strict, and my two brothers, David and Doug, and I knew right from wrong. I am focusing here on our environment’s impact on our lives and choices rather than that of heredity. I think the majority of my upbringing involved the fact that I was treated with love and respect along with a strong dose of the necessity of following the rules. I knew what was expected of me although many times it was not through actual spoken words. It really involved actions and deeds. For example, I made good grades and although my parents were proud of me, they didn’t respond a lot with words. It was more like having a special meal See HAPPEN, Page 5

OPINION: How is Kamala Harris doing on the job of quelling the border crisis? It appears the VP is at a loss for words. I wonder why. by JOHN GRIMALDI Guest columnist The American Dream is turning into a nightmare. When Emma Lazarus penned the words engraved on the Statue of Liberty it gave everlasting hope to those who sought the freedom and the opportunities the U.S. offered. All they needed to do was to knock at our door. As Ms. Lazarus put it, “Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” She didn’t say break down the “golden door” and let yourself in. But that seems to be how some would interpret it. The result

has been life-threatening chaos at our southern and southwestern borders where the influx of illegal immigrants has reached overwhelming proportions. To be fair, illegal immigration has been a problem for the U.S. for many years but since Joe Biden took office the numbers of illegals have been steadily growing. Prior to his taking office the traffic was measured by increments of tens of thousands; since February – his first full month in office – they are being measured by increments of 100’s of thousands. According to The Hill, “Illegal border crossings have reached a 20-year high. In the four months before Biden took office, illegal crossings averaged 70,000 a month. The

number rose to 97,640 in February, the first full month of Biden’s presidency; to 169,204 in March; and to 173,686 in April; and it was 172,011 in May.” The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) says the numbers rose again in June, reaching 188,829, just about doubling the number in just five months. Why the surge? The Wall Street Journal put it this way, “Many migrants also say they believe that Mr. Biden is more welcoming than Mr. Trump, who targeted illegal immigration in his campaigns and as president. The notion of the U.S. being more welcoming has been reinforced through the news and on social media as would-be

Wanting too many ‘things; a fast track to turmoil A happy and secure life does not mean immediate Glenn Mollette gratifiGuest Editorial cation. We have heard these words before, “I want it all and I want it now.” Wanting the things of life as quickly as possible is natural. Some climb the career ladder quickly achieving epic heights at young ages. Many burn the candle at both ends in order to have the biggest house the finance company will allow. Some want to have a certain number of children by a certain age along with a mega career, housing, cars and all that a segment of society considers successful. However, is your mental sanity worth the stress of all that it usually takes to get as much and as fast as you can? The common consensus by many is, “I don’t want

to wait until I’m old to have a nice house.” Or, “I don’t want to wait to enjoy the finer things of life.” An old acquaintance bought an expensive house in California a few years back and remarked, “I couldn’t wait to get into that incredible house and then I couldn’t wait until we sold it.” Another friend remarked, “The greatest day in my life was when I bought my boat and the second greatest day was when I sold it.” Our view of life’s wants and needs change throughout life. We look at some things as if we can’t live until we get them. After a while we realize life was simpler and more manageable before we had them. Consider pacing yourself. Remember this word as much as possible – afford. Try to buy, drive, and live with the ‘afford’ word as your ongoing theme. If you can’t afford it, you certainly don’t need it, whatever it is. Don’t overbuy on your house. Buy what you can

afford now and maybe soon you can sell and buy greater. If you are living beyond what you can afford you will end up losing ground. Getting behind with making payments on property or having to file bankruptcy will only put the things you want out of reach. Destroying your credit rating only dismantles what you will want to buy next. So, take your time. Trying to spend more and buy more than you can afford does not make you a greater person in anyone’s minds or eyes. Keep in mind that it’s your life and there’s nothing better than living life with peace of mind. If you can be comfortable, eat well and have a good daily life of health then what more do you really want? If you want more, then take your time, do good and more will probably become available to you. The wisdom writer of Proverbs said in 15:16, “Better a little with fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil.”

migrants see others successfully entering the U.S.” So, what is Mr. Biden doing to stem the flow of illegals? He put the matter in the hands of his not-so-competent Vice President, Ms. Kamala Harris. But, as I have noted in the past, she must be working in deep – very

deep– cover at her job of dealing with the crisis on our southern border. It took her more than three months after she was put in charge of the mess at the border to actually MAKE a visit to the border. A lot of good she was. When reporters asked her what she had accomplished, she gave

them this pithy reply, “I met with the children, with the young girls. And you know, it was interesting, they have obviously fled great harm. They’re there without their parents. They are also full of hope. They were asking me questions, ‘How do you become the first woman vice president?’”

Main Street America President and CEO Patrice Frey saluted the work done by accredited programs across the country in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. “I am inspired by their hard work and confident that these accredited communities will continue to help their downtowns flourish in the next stages of recovery,” said Frey. Nationally, over the last 40 years, the Main Street America program has spurred about $90 billion in public and private investment, about 700,000 new jobs, about 150,000 new businesses, and about 300,000 rehabilitated buildings.

love can’t overcome. The most popular verse is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” We know that when it says God loves the world, He means us too. Have we ever thought about replacing the word “world” in this verse with the word “them”? Think about this. Perhaps this is the key element we have forgotten. This lack of recognition that others are loved by God is the spiritual humidity that sucks the life out of our relationship with the world. On the night Christ was betrayed He commanded His followers to love one another as he loved them. This is the

reminder that those who follow Him and those who betray Him are the same people, and Christ loves them. We should do the same. Before we berate an employee because our favorite food is out of stock, we should think, Christ loves them too. Before we go off on our brothers and sisters in Christ because they are “doing the church wrong” we should think, Christ loves them too.

By doing this, the cool, crisp love of Christ may grant you peace and lighten the burdens of this life. God bless you all.

He continued, “This summer we have seen 40 players at workouts and are entering the last dead period for July, which is from the 19th of July to the 25th,” adding, “We will have one week of workouts and practice,” which began on Monday, July 26.

field and each team was given four plays to make 20 yards and another four plays to score,” he said. Pruitt continued, “After our first session we needed to improve offensively on timing and catching the ball. On defense our emphasis was on closing space and playing to the whistle. These areas were addressed at practice on July 14.” Pruitt said the players that participated included experienced players and rising ninth graders. “Our seniors were Kadin Beaver, Cain Cash, Jackson Owens and Cooper Sloan; our juniors were Landon Hahn, Kam Bolin, Chase Miller and Gage Vernon. Our sophomores were Isaiah Beam, Elijah Gibson, Conner Hawkins, Noah Hollingsworth, Caleb Hovis, Shamyr Moss and Josh Ward, and our freshmen were Cameron Gatza, Tyler Foley, Seth Hall, Deshawn Heard, Devon Heard, Liam McEntyre, Jabob Nathe, Bryson Sigmon and Keith Standley.

Cherryville Post 100 Legion Seniors 2021 Area IV Champs by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Cherryville’s Post 100 Senior Legion team are the 2021 Area IV Champions after defeating Rutherford Post 423 in two games last week at Memorial Stadium/Fraley Field. According to the team’s Facebook page, this is the 23rd time a Post 100 Senior Team has played for the Area IV Championship. It further stated they have “…won 19 Championships and four (4) runner up titles since 1953, when Area IV went to the playoff series format.” Before the game on Friday, July 23, Post 100 and the crowd recognized the Little League 11- and 12-year-old 2021 All-Stars who recently won the District One Championship and played in the N.C. State Tournament Games at the Myers Park Trinity Complex in Charlotte. In Thursday’s July 22nd action, the Post 100 seniors squad played Rutherford Post 423 in a best two of three games and won Game One by a score of 15-0. While Rutherford’s team was short a few players they comported themselves well but were still unable to slow down a steamrolling Post 100 juggernaut led by hitter Brett Mason, Zach Wilson, Samuel Duncan, and Cole Irby. Starting pitcher Zach Wilson, who struck out four batters, got the win in this one as the Cherryville men got 15 runs on 13 hits. Noah Ingle came in relief and struck out two Rutherford batters. Wilson helped himself by going 2 for 4, got on base twice, had an RBI, and got on base after being hit by Rutherford’s pitcher. Duncan was 2 for 4, had a double and four (4) RBIs. Irby also was 2 for 4, had an RBI and was walked.

They are, front row (L-R): head coach Bobby Reynolds, Collin Robinson, Brett Mason, Landon Hahn, Brady Mackall, Will Heavner, Jacob Hamrick, Samuel Duncan, Cody Mosteller, and Zach Wilson. Back row, standing (L-R): Asst.

(photo provided) Mason was 3 for 3 and had two (2) RBIs. Zane Brockman was 1 for 3, had 2 RBIs, and was walked; Joseph Webb, Landon Hahn, and Collin Robinson each were one for 3, with Hahn and Webb each driving in a run, while Robinson was walked. Will Heavner had two (2) RBIs, and got on base due to catcher interference, and was walked. The Friday, July 23, Game Two of this bestof-three games matchup saw the Post 100 team win again over Rutherford, this time by a score of 10-0. Three pitchers took the mound in this one for Coach Reynolds’ team as Joseph Webb started, striking out six batters and walking one; Brett Mason struck out three and walked none; and Brady Mackall struck out one and walked one as Post 100 rapped out 12 hits on their way to their 10-0 win. Webb helped himself by going 2 for 3, and Mason went 2 for 4, getting an RBI, and being walked.

Gaston Together facilitates 2021 Commissioners School “Movers & Shakers” session Recently, Gaston Together facilitated a session for the “Movers and Shakers” group of the 2021 Commissioners School. Eleven students spent the morning participating in a mini-town hall community forum. The session was held at First United Methodist Church, “Greene House” in Gastonia. Student participants represented Ashbrook, East Gaston, Forestview, Gaston Christian, Highland School of Technology, Hunter Huss, North Gaston and South Point. Donna Lockett, Executive Director, provided a brief overview of the work of Gaston Together to begin the program and discussed the non-profit concept. She reminded students who were living in Gaston County in their third-grade year that they also participated in Gaston Together’s “Pride in Gaston” Traveling Tour, a program designed to build com-

munity pride in young students. Dwayne Burks, a member of Gaston Together’s clergy association, the Gaston Clergy & Citizens Coalition, partnered to conduct the session. Lockett and Burks discussed the community visioning process. Students worked in small groups in their role as future leaders to identify points from their perspective for the community visioning process. Then they took a deeper look at our current state of life in Gaston County. Through a skit format, one team demonstrated what’s good about Gaston County. A second team provided insight into the current challenges in Gaston County. The third team looked at needed improvements in our county. Traditionally, the team that wins this presentation competition receives a basket of goodies – snacks and fun trinkets such as “clappers” and

nerf balls. The winning team’s skit highlighted things that need to be improved in Gaston County. They focused on community beautification through redevelopment: 1) abandoned buildings into new businesses and 2) the old Belmont Middle School into a community center for kids. The team was composed of Trinity Brown (East Gaston), Rachel Long (Forestview), Kirsten Sadler (East Gaston), and Keira Wilcox (South Point). Formed in 1997, Gaston Together was organized as a catalyst for positive change in Gaston County. Its purpose is to bring people and resources together to tackle big community challenges such as building community pride, creating a pool of potential future leaders for Gaston County, building bridges of unity across racial, ethnic and gender lines, and creating a culture of wellness for our citizens.

From Page 1 Public Health Director Steve Eaton said those that are unvaccinated should continue to wear a mask and social distance in public, but encouraged everyone who has not yet gotten a COVID19 vaccine to do so. Gaston County’s Public Health Department allows for walk-in vaccinations Monday-Friday,

and a full list of COVID-19 vaccine providers can be found at “This is our chance to let people know who have been on the fence about this: Get your vaccine,” Eaton said. “It is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from this deadly disease.” Thirty-six percent of all Gaston County residents are currently fully vaccinated against COVID-19. For North Carolina as a whole, that number is 46 percent.

Cherryville’s Main Street hosting food vendors, music, and shopping “Third Thursday” events to be held this summer and fall Cherryville’s Main Street will come alive every third Thursday of the summer and fall months with food trucks, live music, and special shopping deals, according to a media release from Downtown Director David Day. Said Mr. Day, “The first event will be Thursday, June 17, from 5-7 p.m. That evening, in the Mini Park, the featured food truck will be Cousins Main Lobster and music will be by Opal Moon.” Day noted Main Street merchants will be open and offering special deals. Both Houser Drug and Butter Me Up will be selling ice cream, he said, in the media release. “We want to make Main Street a summer evening destination for our citizens,” Day continued. Day also noted that in addition to the food, music,

and shopping deals, residents can enjoy the ever-improving amenities of the Mini Park. “We’re working on new and more seating for our summer events,” said Day. “Plus, we now have free WiFi in the

Mini Park. And, of course, our beautiful red and while petunias are multiplying.” For more information, citizens may call the Main Street office at (704) 435-3451.

Partial animal shelter closure due to feline ringworm virus Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement would like to request help from the community. The animal shelter is currently experiencing an outbreak of the ringworm virus in our cat population. Through discussions with North Carolina’s Department of Agriculture: Veterinarian Services the suggested protocol to follow is for Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement to par-

tially shut down the shelter. For a 21-day period, we will not adopt or intake any cats. During this 21-day period of partial shutdown our cat population will be isolated and medically treated for the virus. Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement appreciates your assistance, understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience this places on our community.
