Cherryville HS beats Highland Tech in 2021 “Battle of the Books” School gets first win in Gaston County’s reading contest by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Cherryville High School’s Mrs. Nancy C. Olls is proud of the school’s “Battle of the Books” reading team, of which she is the sponsor. Olls, the School Library Media Coordinator and System’s Operator/Teacher, noted her small team bested the team from Highland School of Technology back in April 2021, taking home Gaston County Schools’ “High School Battle of the Books” gleaming silver trophy. The Ironmen team, which consists of members Macy Bridges, Harley LaRoche, Bailey Dugan, Destany Fritzler, and Luca Bredin, has been in existence for three years, said

Olls. “We’ve competed twice and were ready to compete last year but were sidelined by COVID-19,” she said, adding that Macy Bridges “…is a founding member of the team.” Olls noted the students read 16 books throughout the year and competed in April of this year, “…on a county-wide Quiz Bowl type of competition.” She continued, “(The) Battle of the Books was created and is run by the N.C. School Library Media Association. This year, CHS was victorious and the students received medals for their work!” Olls said the plan is to house the trophy in the See BOOKS, Page 3


CaroMont Family Medicine, located at 120 S. Mountain St., has a couple of new family practitioners, adding to an already excellent medical staff at their Cherryville clinic. Rebecca Love, MD, and Billie Jo Dagenhart, FNPC, are the two practitioners who are providing top-notch medical care for patients at the established office, noted CaroMont Health spokesperson, Meghan Berney. “I did grow up in the area and studied economics in college,” said Dr. Love, who added, “I’ve always been interested in how things work, improving processes and efficiency.

NC now has a state-certified COVID-19 vaccination card What does that mean? by JEFF MOORE Carolina Journal

Earlier this year, Governor Roy Cooper said his administration was exploring the development of a vaccine passport for residents of North Carolina. “We want to be able to help people to be able to show others that they have gotten the vaccine because a lot of people are going to want that,” the governor said while touring a vaccination site in late March. Just days later, in early April, New York launched its First in the Nation’ vaccine passport, the Excelsior Pass. California, likewise, launched a digital vaccine passport in June. Other states followed. The debate surrounding vaccine passports is a sensitive one. Some view the passports as a useful tool to help mitigate the further spread of SARS-CoV2, helping to screen those employees, customers, or clientele deemed ‘safe’ by virtue of vaccination. Still, critics contend that embracing such a system blurs the lines of medical privacy and risks fomenting discrimination between the vaccinated and non-vaccinated that risks creating a two-tiered society. The split exists largely along partisan lines. In May, six Republican members of North Carolina’s congressional delegation sent a letter to the governor calling on him to reject the creation of vaccine passports, saying such a requirement would be a violation of residents’ constitutional rights. Fast-forward a few months: residents of and visitors to New York and California are pressured to show their vaccine passports to participate in any number of activities; restaurants

and bars, sports and entertainment venues, screen for vaccine credentials; and, in North Carolina, the Cooper administration has just quietly launched its very own state-certified ‘vaccine information card.’ What, exactly, could this mean for North Carolinians, both vaccinated and non-vaccinated going forward? The North Carolina vaccine passport is not mandatory. Notably, neither are those of New York or California; they are not required of every resident by the state. Yet critics worry that may amount to a distinction, without a difference. The Frequently Asked Questions section of the NC vaccine passport page addresses several iterations of the question, ‘Am I required to show proof of vaccination for ‘X’?” The answer, consistently, is, yes, as long as they are not state entities. “Employers, businesses, or universities can require proof of a COVID-19 vaccine, or a valid medical or religious exemption.” Indeed, private institutions such as Elon University and Duke University are requiring students to present proof of vaccination to register for classes, as are many other private schools in North Carolina. However, the state’s public university system necessarily will not require proof for students to remain in good standing. Will that distinction last? And what about public K-12 schools? In recent reporting on a local school board vote to remove mask mandates for students and staff, making them optional instead despite the statewide mandate for K-12 schools, the Raleigh News & Observer notes, “Under the plan, students and staff are See CARD, Page 6

Dear Stressed, I’m very sorry for your loss, but you’ll be relieved to know that replacing important documents that are destroyed, lost or stolen is pretty easy once you know where to turn. Here are the replacement resources for each document you mentioned.

Property deed: To access your house deed, contact your county clerk’s office, where deeds are usually recorded – you may be charged a small fee to get a copy.

Birth certificates: If you were born in the United States, contact the vital records office in the state where you were born (see index.htm for contact information).

Come and see what’s new and improved at Your CBL by TRACI POLLITT Cherryville Branch Manager

Our upcoming events at Your Cherryville Branch Library Are our Outdoor Storytime at First United Methodist Church – Thursdays at 9:30 a.m.; Teen Anime Club – Thursday, Aug. 12, at 4 p.m.; and Hooks, Needles & Thread – Friday, Aug. 13, at 11 a.m. That said, in our last article we had mentioned that our entry and exit drives were being redone. We are happy to announce that both have been finished, and the results are nothing less than spectacular! And smooth! Did we mention smooth? It really is amazing what a difference the new concrete has made. Not only are the drives smoother, but they also give our parking lot a bit of a facelift. We hope patrons agree that it was worth the wait. We are thrilled to announce our Lucky Day Collection! This has been in the works for a while at Gaston County Public Library but as with so many other things, the events of last year put the brakes on the idea for a bit. Once branches were able to open their doors again, the project started rolling out slowly, first on a trial basis at a few locations, then out to a few more, and so on. What is this collection? These are new, high demand titles/authors that have just hit the system. With our regular collection, reserve requests are placed by many patrons, meaning that one will have to wait to get the book in hand. Not with

the Lucky Day Collection! These special books are just for patrons who come in our branch. The items do not appear in our catalog and they are not able to be requested. They are hanging out, waiting for the lucky patron who will choose to take them home. That lucky patron could be you! These titles will only be in this special collection for a short time, so be sure to stop by soon. As the hot (and we mean HOT!) summer drags on, we’re thinking ahead to the fall and cooler temps. We are happy to be partnering again with Gaston County Cooperative Extension to bring programs to our branch. Look for Cooking Smart with Fall Foods, Common Nutrition Myths of Diabetes, and Healthy Holiday Hints & Foods later this year. We are also making plans to participate in the Chamber’s Scary-ville and Little Monster March events this October. We’re hoping to resume LEGO Club once school starts, and we’re gauging interest in other types of clubs such as crafting. If you have library-related questions, you can reach us at (704) 4356767, or stop by the branch at 605 E. Main Street. Our public service hours are 10 a.m., to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday; and 10 a.m., to 2 p.m., Friday and Saturday. Our events can be found by visiting www. and clicking the GCPL Calendar of Events. And don’t forget our Facebook page! And, as always, have a safe, GREAT summer!

Dr. Rebecca Love and Ms. Billie Jo Dagenhart, FNC-P, in one of the examining rooms at CaroMont Family Medicine, located on Mountain Street, in Cherryville. (photos by MEP/The Eagle/CF Media) Trying to get their outdoor class assignment done and staying socially distanced at the same time are these CHS students of Coach Tim Pruitt’s Health and PE class.

CAROMONT From Page 1 classes at the University of North Carolina – Charlotte to fill in some of the missing science prerequisites and then attended the Bowman Gray School of Medicine at Wake Forest University. I completed my residency with a small community program in Greenville, South Carolina.” FNP-C Dagenhart noted she is glad to be in Cherryville, adding that she is originally from Minnesota, which is a bit farther north and a tad cooler than here in the sunny South. “I’ve been with CaroMont Health since 2017. I’m originally from Minnesota and studied nursing at South Dakota State University, graduating in 2001. I worked in Charlotte as a registered nurse in oncology and critical care for 16 years before attending Gardner-Webb University to become a Nurse Practitioner. “For me, becoming a Nurse Practitioner was important. I was motivated to work with my patients to diagnose, treat and prescribe, really connecting with them to help guide their care as a provider.” Dagenhart noted her family still lives in Minnesota, adding the reason for the move here was that, “I had a friend down South and I thought it would be fun to live some place different. I have to say it is nice to be in a place with seasons instead of winter and 'not winter’, and I’ve called North Carolina home since the early 2000s.” Dagenhart said she really enjoys the small town feel of Cherryville and the patient population is wonderful. “I find they’re very receptive to learning about their health and ways to improve it,” she said. “As a provider, I want my patients to have a high quality of life, so teaching them ways to stay healthy is very important to me. Especially my older patients, I find they want to remain independent as long as pos-

Together, we can work to understand their needs, health risk factors and really tailor their care to them personally.” Doctor Love said she always knew she wanted to incorporate working with children into her medical career. “Practicing family medicine in smaller towns allows me to do that, which is something I really enjoy. And that is one of the reasons I chose this specialty,” she said. Doctor Love noted she also works at CaroMont Family Medicine in Shelby. Dr. Love continued, “After medical school, I joined a program that focused on placing doctors in smaller communities that don’t have broad access to medical care. That’s how I knew family medicine in small towns like Cherryville and Shelby was where I wanted to provide care. There is great vitality in Cherryville. It’s a small town with lots to offer and I enjoy serving the community here and in Shelby.” It was noted that Ms. Dagenhart only works at the Cherryville clinic. As for any hobbies, when they have the time, Dagenhart

said, “Outside of a pandemic, my husband and I enjoy traveling. We also spend time working on our house.” Love, who is also actually a musician, said, “I play the piano and the stand-up bass, which I learned from local bluegrass musicians Darin and Brooke Aldridge. He and his wife, Brooke, live in Cherryville, and I was fortunate to take lessons with them.” The two medical practitioners wanted their Cherryville patients and clients to know the following, going forward, about COVID-19’s upsurge and the new variant. Said Dr. Love, “It’s so important for patients to just be practical. COVID-19 is an infectious disease and we know how to prevent infectious diseases. And patients should get vaccinated. As a primary care doctor, I’m here to help my patients make that decision.” Dagenhart agreed, adding, “I also recommend vaccination. I’m here to discuss that option with my patients and help them protect themselves and those they love from COVID-19.” For more information about the Cherryville clinic or to make an appointment, call (704) 445-0422.

It was the students’ choice to walk or run to rack up yardage in the May “Yards for Yeardley” walk/run aspect of Tim Pruitt’s Health & PE class at CHS. (photos provided)

STEP UP From Page 1 is eager and happy to do so. That is why, he has often said in the past, he chose the “Yards for Yeardley” walks to be a part of his physical education classes. He continued that at CHS this Spring, he noted, when on a Friday in May (7th, to be exact) the Health and Physical Education classes at Cherryville High School participated in the Spring “Yards for Yeardley” walks. The students walked or ran in the parking lot of the Cherryville First Wesleyan Church. Places were marked off for them to do so. Noted Coach Pruitt in a media release, “Yards for Yeardley is a program that provides awareness for dating violence and the importance of healthy relationships.” Simply put, the “Yards for Yeardley” program is a national movement to bring awareness to victims of domestic violence.

The late Yeardley Love was a female Lacrosse player at the University of Virginia who died as a result of domestic violence, allegedly at the hands of her former boyfriend. After her death her friends and family began a foundation that provides information to college and high school students around the United States. Pruitt continued, “Students were encouraged to participate in the ‘Yards for Yeardley’ movement in response to learning that one in three females and one in four males will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime. The classes also received information on signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships and how they can help someone who is being controlled in a negative manner.” Pruitt said the three classes involved were his first, second and fourth period classes, and they covered over 250,000 yards. Said Pruitt, “Ceniya Powell led all students as she covered 7,340 yards.”

He continued, “We had four girls walk or ran over 4,800 yards as part of the event, and they were Alyssa Baker (5,280), Chloe Buchanan (4,920), Bailey Dugan (4,920) and Damia Lingerfelt (4,800). Also, we had seven boys walk or ran over 6,000 yards, and they were Mason Jerrell (7,200), Caiden Anthony (6,120), Cameron Carswell (6,120), Nick Carver (6,120), Kemper Harris (6,120), Chance Hunt (6,000) and Henry Gil (6,000).” Coach Pruitt noted there were 60 students who participated in the event which took an entire class period. Pruitt also said he wanted to thank all of his students for their attention to this serious matter and their effort and energy in completing “Yards for Yeardley”. “I also want to thank Pastor Wayne Key for his work with my classes throughout the second semester at CHS,” added Pruitt.

means giving yourself away while finding pleasure or joy in whatever comes. ‘Commit’ means to be loyal, to be dedicated in your faith before the Lord. Proverbs 3:5 says we should trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not unto our own understanding. When we delight in, commit to, and trust our ways to the Lord, God is promising to give us the desires of our hearts. Could we truly receive the desires of our hearts? Scripture says, ‘yes’! The Lord gives His children their aspirations only when they’re derived from a sincere heart and desire for God’s honor and glory. In other words, we can’t hold back on God for

He is a jealous God. “For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever believed in Him should not perish but receive everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17) The sinless Son of God took our place and the sins of the world upon the cross. God deserves 100 percent of all that we are, nothing less. God knows the intent of our hearts. He also knows when we’re seriously giving our very best. He wants to give His children the desires of the heart, but we learn that for this to happen our hearts must first desire Him as

Lord! I thought long about what is my heart’s desire. It is to love the Lord with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind and all my strength according to Matthew 22:37. I am thankful for the Lord’s saving grace, His protection, forgiveness, guidance, and His immeasurable love for a sinner like me. My heart’s desire is to see my children, grandchildren, family and friends all living for the Lord. I also pray that you as a citizen of Cherryville, N.C., would consider Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. What is your heart’s desire?

From Page 2 not required to show vaccination cards, while they can choose whether to wear masks at schools.” It is unclear why such a requirement is mentioned. For one, no one under 12 years of age is currently eligible for a vaccine. When it comes to issues like medical privacy and, especially, options for those who have obtained immunity through infection, Jon Sanders, Director of Regulatory Studies for the John Locke Foundation, has more questions than the FAQ page can answer. “I think it’s an absolute joke that they’re trying to make people feel comfortable that the information is private, after establishing that it’s pretty much anybody’s business to ask,” Sanders said when asked for comment on the recently launched passport. “Furthermore, I would absolutely love for someone to ask why there’s no interest and no way to provide equally valid proof of natural immunity from prior infection, regardless of whether it was officially diagnosed.” Requiring proof of vaccination to enter a business, event, or university classroom is justified on the basis that those individuals are unlikely to contribute to the further spread of COVID-19, and a state-certified vaccine passport helps facilitate that screening process. When it comes to the previously infected, however, no state-certified tools exist to prove what the National Institutes of Health describes as “durable” long-term immune protection from SARS-CoV2 for those that have recovered from a previous infection. The COVID infected-and-recovered population is similarly absent in Governor Cooper’s continued push for higher vaccination rates as well. With new emphasis on rising cases of the ‘Delta Variant’ in North Carolina and around the nation, the push for vaccination has regained a sense of urgency. The governor visits vaccination sites nearly every week

for active engagement. Sessions were conducted as an “experiential learning laboratory” where participants feel safe to practices skills learned during the sessions. Some highlights of the process included work on communication skills and civic dialogue, influencing as a leader and community building by working across differences in demographics and community sectors, and self-assessment pre and post program testing for growth/ change comparison. Community focus areas important to them as residents of Gaston County such as education and diversity in leadership were identified early in their sessions.



in an attempt to reach goals his administration set for total vaccination rates, regardless of passing the targeted date. According to North Carolina’s COVID Dashboard from N.C. Department of Health and Human Service, as of publication, more than half of North Carolinians 12 years and up have received both vaccination doses. This includes nearly 85 percent of North Carolinians 65 years and older, the most vulnerable demographic. Yet, despite the introduction of a cash lottery to incentivize more people to get vaccinated, rates in North Carolina have plateaued in recent weeks. Similar trends are apparent around the country, prompting those in national media to probe federal officials about whether they support local vaccine mandates. Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the president’s chief medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, recently voiced unequivocal support for local vaccination mandates. Pressed for President Joe Biden’s take in the wake of Fauci’s comment, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the president, too, would be supportive of local mandates. “What Dr. Fauci was conveying is that there will be decisions made by local leaders – just like there will be decisions made by business leaders, by institutional leaders – on how they can keep their communities safe. And we support their right to make those decisions,” Psaki told reporters. Clear limitations exist in issuing federal vaccine mandates, limitations often lamented by White House officials when discussing the issue. Similarly, Governor Cooper faces limits in issuing statewide mandates for vaccines, or vaccine passports. But if Cooper were to follow the president’s and Fauci’s lead in supporting local mandates, enforcement of said mandates would necessarily require the use of vaccine passports, which the State of North Carolina now offers in official form.

conducted an extensive research and discovery phase to examine other leadership programs in the county to identify any possible gaps and avoid duplication of efforts. The CEL process was built around three areas for enhancement identified during this research phase: intentional cross-sector community building, greater knowledge of Gaston County (its past, present and impact on the future) and indepth personal awareness and skills development. The process was designed with eight sessions; six full-day and two halfday classes. The classes were limited to a group of 20-25 participants to allow


On May 11, Gaston Together was finally able to conduct the Graduation Celebration for the third class of their Civic Engagement Leadership (CEL) process. These graduates began their sessions in August 2019 anticipating a June 2020 graduation. Due to Covid restrictions, they had to extend their number of sessions by three and conduct them via a virtual format just to complete the CEL process. Fortunately, they were far enough along in

the CEL process to enable a virtual format to work. One year later, they were able to Graduate AND celebrate! The Graduation Celebration event was held at the Gaston Country Club at 5:30 p.m. Guests were greeted with a Welcome Reception that was sponsored by the second class of CEL. The program and presentation followed. Gaston Together created the CEL process in response to a two-fold community request: 1) to create a potential future pool of leaders for Gaston County and 2) to attract and retain the young adult in Gaston County through leadership opportunities.

Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was a long-awaited event.

Post 100 seniors end season 22-6 overall; 3-1 in State playoffs by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

The Cherryville-hosted American Legion NC State Championship Tournament started last week with a great banquet at Cherryville First Baptist Church’s COC, where all the teams that came from Area’s I, II, III, and IV to eat a meal and meet and greet each other. Against Post 11 (Wayne Co.) Tournament play began for Post 100 on Wednesday, July 28, when they faced off against Wayne County’s Post 11. Post 11 fought valiantly but the big bats of Cherryville’s Post 100 men struck back enough to drive in eight P100 runs, ending the game with the Cherryville club on top, 8-2. Winning pitcher Zach Wilson struck out four batters and walked two. Zane Brockman came in and struck out four batters and also walked two Post 11 players. Big Noah Huss came in and finished the game for Post 100. Post 100 hitters did their job well also as Wilson helped himself by going 2-4; Brockman also helped himself at the plate by going 1-4, getting an RBI, and scoring on a wild pitch. Others doing well in this one were: Will Heavner (1-4, 2 RBIs); Samuel Duncan (on base due to being hit by a pitch); Cole Irby (2-3, a double, a walk, and scored on a balk); Joseph Webb (2-3, 1 RBI, scored on a wild pitch); Landon Hahn (an RBI); Reid Stroupe (walked); and Collin Robinson (1-3). Post 100 scored eight runs on nine hits. Against Post 342 (Rowan Co.)

On Thursday, July 29, pretty much everybody got to make it to the plate in this one as Post 100 dealt Rowan County a 17-1 defeat in six innings of play. Winning pitcher Joseph Webb struck out six batters, and walked three as he went the distance in this one. Post 100’s ball club rapped out 14 hits on their way to their 17 runs, made no errors, and left five on base. Against Post 545 (Port City) On Friday, July 30, Post 100 beat this scrappy club 12-9, as starter Noah Ingle struck out one batter but walked three before being replaced on the mound by Coach Reynolds by Brett Mason who only walked another Port City batter. Collin Robinson took the mound next and struck out one Port City batter until he was pulled and Brady Mackall got on the mound to wrap things up for Post 100. The infield and outfield crews pretty much took care of business as the Port City players put the bat to the ball but their hits wound up being either ground outs or fly outs in the outfield. Zach Wilson was 3-5, and scored on a wild pitch; Samuel Duncan was 2-5, walked twice and had 2 RBIs; next it was Zane Brockman (1-3, a double, an RBI); Cody Mosteller (1-1, on due to a fielder’s choice out); Will Heavner (1-3, HR, 2 RBIs); Landon Hahn (1-2); Brett Mason (1-2, got on base, then scored later); Ty Heavner (walked); Jacob Hamrick (1-4, an RBI, scored); Reid Stroupe (got on due to an error, an RBI); Cole Irby (1-1, an RBI); and Collin Robinson (2-4, a walk, scored on a wild pitch). Post 100’s men had 12

hits and got 12 runs in six innings of play. Against Post 10 (Wilmington) Post 100 had a 3-0 lead in the State Championships as they headed into Saturday, July 31’s 7 p.m., semis game against powerhouse Wilmington. The Cherryville club fought hard against the power hitters of this ball club but in the end were just not able to make a win for the hometown happen as Post 10 downed the Cherryville team 1710. Wilmington moved on to the Sunday finals, played at Cherryville at 3 p.m. The winner of that game moves on as the NC State AL Champs to the Regionals in Asheboro, starting this week. Coach Reynolds had to use four pitchers in this matchup: starter Zane Brockman struck out three batters and walked three; Noah Huss struck out one batter and walked three; Landon Hahn walked three batters; Brady Mackall then came in and gave it his best. Hitters for Post 100 and how they fared are: Zach Wilson (2-5, an RBI); Samuel Duncan (4-5, 3 RBIs); Brockman (1-5, a walk, a fielder’s choice); Cole Irby (1-5); Joseph Webb (4-5, an RBI); Hahn (2-5, 2 RBIs); Brett Mason (walked, hit by a pitch); Jacob Hamrick (1-2, an RBI); and Collin Robinson (1-4, an RBI). The men had 10 runs off of 14 hits, made only one error, and left 13 men stranded on base. Post 100 seniors team ends their 2021 season at 22-6 overall; 3-1 in the playoffs. The Post 100 Juniors finished their 2021 season at 19-5. (Additional information by Susan L. Powell, Danny Eaker and Ned Yates)

Hughes signs LOI to play basketball at Mars Hill by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Mars Hill is getting yet another fine example of the CHS Ironmen basketball program’s athletes in the person of recent signee Lavonte Marquis “Tae” Hughes. A consummate high energy hoops man, Hughes, along with fellow Ironmen roundball player and friend, Lane Harrill (also a Mars Hill basketball player), led their fellow Ironmen to many wins over the four years they were on the Bud Black court together. Hughes, never one much for words about himself or his deeds, said of his signing with the Lions, “I’m excited to be playing for Mars Hill. They were my first choice.” Hughes said he starts Aug. 25, and is, to say the least, looking forward to it. Mom Jessica Makeupson said she is very proud of and for her son. “Well, like any mother, I don’t want him to go that far away, but I am so happy for him. This is his dream,” she said. His Ironmen head coach, Scott Harrill, who has watched him grow and succeed, said, “We are so proud of Lavonte Hughes. Lavonte is a true competitor, a great leader, an unbelievable point guard, who is an even better person. “He worked as hard as anyone to make himself better. It has been a pleasure to coach Lavonte over the last four years. He is and always will be,

an Ironman!” Coach Harrill added that Hughes is a member of the vaunted Ironmen 1,000 Points Club as his points total is 1,098 for his high school career. Hughes also has the second most career assists at 597, Harrill noted. Assistant basketball coach Dr. Bud Black said of Hughes, “Over my many years of coaching basketball at Cherryville High School, there have been some excellent point guards. Lavonte ranks in the top three all-time. He has the skills to be the 'coach on the floor’ and has a high IQ for the game of basketball. He is truly an outstanding basketball player, and he is a gentleman on and off the basketball court.” “This kid has the heart of a lion but a gentle giant; very coachable; very low key. I’m so thankful that Mars Hill is giving him an opportunity to come there and compete. He was a great kid to coach over the past four years,’ said Assistant coach Dennis Tate. Ironmen Assistant basketball coach Antonio Griggs said of Lavonte, “He is one of the most selfless individuals to come from our Cherryville basketball program. I’m thankful I was able to coach him at the middle and high school levels. Congratulations on your signing to Mars Hill University. Thank you for making my coaching job easy.” Lavonte’s younger brother Korey Makeupson plays sports at John Chavis Middle School.
