Winston-Salem based Novant Health has suspended more than 300 employees effective this week for not getting a COVID19 vaccine. According to a press release from the hospital system, those who have not either had one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine or a first dose of Moderna or Pfizer will not be allowed to report to work. Those with one dose will have until October 15 to get the second one. The policy does not apply to those who have gotten a medial or religious exemption. Those with an

exemption face weekly COVID-19 testing and must wear a N95 mask, PPE, and eyewear protection when on Novant premises. The health system says that as a result 375 people will be suspended without pay and if they do not comply within five days they will be terminated from employment. There are 35,000 staff members across the system's 15 hospitals, 800 clinics and outpatient facilities. "These added safety measures are in place to ensure patient and team member safety and preserve staffing levels," Novant Health stated in a press release.

Christine Wells KINGS MOUNTAIN – Virginia “Christine” Owens Wells, 77, of Dick Elam Rd., passed away Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2021 at her residence. She was born Sept. 19, 1944 in Lincoln County to the late James Norman and Laler Ware Owens. She was a 1962 graduate of Tryon High School. Christine enjoyed gardening and reading.

DAR From Page 1 lost rights may never be regained.” So, why does the DAR actively promote Constitution Week? According to information provided by Louanna Kiser of the Tryon Resolves Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Constitution Week was initiated by the Daughters of the American Revolution. The DAR is a patriotic organization that encourages education and historic preservation in the communities across America. The information noted that it all “…began in 1955 when the President General of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Gertrude S. Carraway, adopted a project to promote the observance of the U.S. Constitution with a memorial week beginning on the anniversary of the signing of this document, September 17, 1787. Constitution Week was officially declared by President Eisenhower on Aug. 2, 1956. This was the culmination of a proposal the DAR sent through Senator William F. Knowland of California.” Furthermore, there noted “…there is a memorial honoring the Constitution in the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.” The inscription on the pediment reads, “Constitution Hall – a memorial to that immortal document, the Constitution of the United States, in which are incorporated the principles of freedom, equality and justice for which our forefathers strove.” DAR Constitution Hall is the only structure dedicated to the U.S. Constitution. The Preamble is the opening statement of the Constitution. It is a concise proclamation of the values at work in the complete document. It is thought the Preamble to the Constitution was written by Gouverneur Morris, (1752-1816) of Delaware. Kiser noted their group does not know with certainty if any one man

The family received friends from 5 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 at Carpenter – Porter Funeral & Cremation Ser-vices. Funeral services were held Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021 at 2 p.m., at Carpenter – Porter Funeral Home with Pastor Robert Lam-phier and Pastor Randy Short officiating.

proposed the words of the Preamble, or if it was devised and revised by a whole committee. This statement gives American citizens, not the government, the power of rule. It reads, “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” As Mrs. Kiser noted, these words, written 234 years ago, are the Preamble to our Constitution. So, just this past week – Constitution Week, Sept. 17-23 – celebrated the signing of this important document. The DAR request that all Americans, no matter who you are, “…read beyond the Preamble to understand the structure of the three branches of our representative government. Study the Amendments and the Bill of Rights. Know your Constitution!”

Coming Up at Your Cherryville Branch Library! by TRACI POLLITT Manager – Cherryville Branch Library

Family Storytime – Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. Teen Anime Club – Thursday, Oct. 14, at 4 p.m. Hooks, Needles & Thread – Friday, Oct. 8, at 11 a.m. LEGO Club – 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at 3:30 p.m. (Sept. 28, Oct. 12/26) Common Nutrition Myths of Diabetes – Friday, Oct. 15, at 10:30 a.m. Fall DIY for Adults – Thursday, Oct. 21 at 5 p.m . As we close out National Library Card Sign-Up Month, it seems like a great time for a personal story. So please let me, Traci Pollitt – your library author, tell you about my own library experiences as a child. Most of our patrons know that I am a transplant, not a native North Carolinian. I was born and raised in Indiana. My parents had a house built in Brownsburg (30 minutes west of Indianapolis) and that is where I grew up, attended school, worked my first job, and fell in love with the library. I already loved to read, as my parents were both readers and made sure we always had books in the house.

But the library – oh, the library was a magical place! The photos you see are the building I remember, an original Carnegie library made possible in the early 1900s thanks to Andrew Carnegie and his Foundation’s support. My fondest memory of the building was this: the children’s area was in the “basement” and I loved heading down the steps each trip, knowing that “my” area was just waiting for me. I now know that it wasn’t really a true basement, as the main floor of the library was actually what most of us think of as the second floor. I can still remember wandering the aisles, looking for my latest treasure. So many happy hours spent at that library! As my sister and I got older, my mother applied for and accepted a part-time library position; I believe she would have been considered a library page today (someone who shelves books as their only duty). Knowing that my mom worked at my favorite place just made it that much more special to me. The Carnegie building soon became too small for the growing suburb of Brownsburg, though. In 1981, a new-and-improved – and much larger – building was opened to the pub-

lic, just blocks away from the Carnegie building. Sadly, I don’t have memories of that building. Like many kids, I spent less time in the public library as I got older, using the school library for projects, and then only when absolutely necessary. And like many young adults, I didn’t read much for pleasure while I was in college, placing my focus on my studies. Libraries are cyclical, though, and like many, I returned to them as an adult. And now, just like my mother all those years ago, I work in a library. To all who got their first library card during National Library Card Sign-Up Month, congratulations! The great news for those who didn’t have a chance to obtain their card – we are always ready to make that first library card for someone! We love to see people use their public library, and it’s never too late to get a library card. For information about your public library, call us at (704) 435-6767, 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. As always, stay safe, stay healthy, and keep reading!

Gaston County Schools: Face coverings/ masks still required indoors by MICHAEL E. POWELL

House Keeper and Grounds Keeper If you would like to schedule a time to tour the church, discuss your responsibilities and submit your bid, please contact the church office at

704-435-9636 112 Mt. Zion Ch. Rd.


In a query to Gaston County Schools regarding a school board decision regarding face masks at schools, by way of answer, Communications Director Todd Hagans referred media representatives to the schools’ web site. According to information posted on that

web site, on Sept. 20, the Board of Education “…voted to maintain the current procedure of requiring people, including students, employees, and visitors, to wear a face covering/mask while inside a Gaston County Schools facility regardless of vaccination status.” Hagans noted in an email the requirement will be in effect until the next Board of Education meeting, which will be held on

Monday, Oct. 18. He also noted that, in accordance with state law, boards of education in North Carolina must take action to maintain or amend its face covering/mask policy at least once a month. Hagans also noted that factors contributing to the Board’s decision “…include the continued high transmission rate of the COVID-19 Delta variant and the continued high COVID-19 positivity rate

in Gaston County. Additionally, wearing face coverings/masks indoors is expected to reduce the number of students/employees who are required to quarantine when there is a confirmed case.” Further, students/drivers are required to wear a face covering/mask while riding on a school bus or activity bus in accordance with federal requirements for public transportation, he added.

ABC chairman resigns amid supply issues, problems at warehouse by JOHN TRUMP Carolina Journal

ABC chairman A.D. Zander Guy Jr. has resigned as chairman of the N.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission. ABC spokesman Jeff Strickland confirmed the resignation to Carolina Journal on Monday, Sept. 20. He offered no additional information. Gov. Roy Cooper, who appointed Guy as chairman in March 2017, will name a replacement. Guy’s resignation comes amid liquor supply shortages, in part because of problems with the global supply chain and also because of issues with liquor warehouse operator, LB&B Associates. The ABC Commission in March voted unanimously to recommend that the state award a 10-year contract for warehouse services to LB&B, the target of an audit in 2018 that has, over previous years, cost the state about $13.5 million. The agreement, the ABC says, includes a requirement of nearly error-free and on-time deliveries as well as increased delivery frequency to the state’s 171 local ABC

A.D. Zander Guy Jr. ABC Chairman boards. “The new contract will involve a comprehensive computerized warehouse management and operations platform that will include backorder capability and increased visibility into real-time warehouse inventory that the local boards have indicated are service priorities,” the ABC said then in a statement. The state and LB&B, Guy said in a recent ABC commission meeting, are working out the “bugs” related to efforts to upgrade overall efficiency, an aspect of LB&B’s new contract. “They understand things have not been going the way

LABOR From Page 1 the Council recognized the Cherryville Police and Fire Departments for getting a Silver Award and a Gold Award. Captain Brian Doolittle accepted the CPD’s First Year Silver Award Certificate from Mayor Beam, and Capt. Chris “Pudge” Cash accepted the CFD’s Ninth Consecutive Year Award, also from the NCDOL, from Mayor Beam. Cherryville Police Chief Cam Jenks said of his department’s receiving the award, “It’s an honor to receive it (the award). Safety should always be a top priority for our employees and for our citizens.” Cherryville City Manager and Fire Chief Jeff Cash said, “I am very proud of the Cherryville Fire Department staff, who continues to operate in a safe manner and in the long run, saves the City of Cherryville large amounts of money.” Also receiving a Gold Award for their third consecutive year, is Cherryville’s Beam Construction Co., Inc., and for their sixth consec-

Mrs. Lockridge and her staff received the NCDOL Gold Award for the sixth consecutive year. utive year, Gaston County Government, Register of Deeds, under the long-time direction of Cherryville native, Susan Lockridge. Regarding the awards, Labor Commissioner Josh Dobson said in the media release, “In an especially challenging year, these employers and employees have shown us the true importance of a strong commitment to safety and health. North Carolina has experienced a continuously declining injury and illness rate, which remains at an historic low. These busi-

they ought to, … and they wanted to offer some relief,” Guy said of the contractor Wednesday. Bars, restaurants, and consumers across the state are having a hard time getting certain brands of liquor from N.C. ABC. The retail demand for spirituous liquor has remained high, as more bars and restaurants have opened in recent months, straining the supply even further, Strickland has told CJ. Global shortages on items such as glass, cardboard, and even labels for bottles have exacerbated the problem. The shelves, which ABC boards oversee, are bereft of some popular global brands. The N.C. ABC has more than 430 stores. The state, according to the 2020 annual report, sold about $1.3 billion worth of spirituous liquor and fortified wine in ABC stores in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020, with total revenue distributions amounting to some $529 million to the state’s General Fund and the cities and counties where alcohol sales are allowed. In the previous fiscal year, retail sales totaled about $980 million. nesses’ dedication to safety is the reason why North Carolina is one of the safest states in which to work and they deserve this distinguished recognition.” The awards honored outstanding on-the-job safety achievements of each recipient during 2020. Recipients recognized are in Gastonia and surrounding counties. As per the media release, it was noted the local recipients have met the stringent requirements necessary to receive a safety award, and, that under program rules, “… companies must have been free of fatal accidents at the site for which the award is given to be eligible. The gold award criteria are based on a DART rate that is at least 50 percent below the statewide rate for its industry. The rate includes cases of days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer. The silver award is based only on cases with days away from work. They are recorded when the worker misses at least one full day of work, not including the day of the injury. The applicant must attain an incidence rate for cases with days away from work that is at least 50 percent below the rate for its industry.”

Work continues on Cherryville’s new YMCA building! by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

On Wednesday, Sept. 15, Sharon Padgett, Gaston County Family YMCA, CEO noted in an email, “If you have been in Cherryville over the past couple months you KNOW that big things are happening! The new YMCA on Mountain Street has been stripped back to

the original bricks and crews have been working hard to restore the original details of the Chrysler Plymouth Dealership. “Work is currently being done on the roof, facade, plumbing, electrical, new windows, etc. We are even getting showers! All of this is to prepare the building for you. We thank you for your patience and hope that you

are as excited as we are! Our estimated time of opening is late October, 2021.” In earlier Eagle articles about the then-proposed move, Padgett and Cherryville Family “Y” staffers noted that, along with more room and space for members, a huge asset is the increase in and ease of parking for those members, especially those with disabilities.

Christian observances: The things Church Fall of God for the people of God bazaar

F o r m a n y Christian churches the first Sunday in October is “World Communion SunREV. DR. BILLY T. day” – a LOWE S u n d a y Pastor – Cherryville First Presbyterian Church observance to accent Christian unity in the world as followers of Jesus Christ. The form of the observance was established by the Lord at the Last Supper when He symbolically offered Himself as the pas-chal lamb of atonement.

His actual death the next day ful-filled the prophecy. Only the Apostle Paul uses the term “Lord’s Supper” (1 Corinthians 11:20), although implications of it are made in Revelation 19:9 (“marriage supper of the Lamb”). The Early Church began to call the observance the “Eucharist”, that is, “Thanksgiving”, from the blessing pronounced over the bread and wine after 100 AD. Like so many Christian celebrations and observances there are not any Biblical instructions on how the Lord’s Supper should be enacted nor what it means to those enacting it. Should celebrants come forward or be served; should there be a common cup or individual cups;

should the bread be unleavened or other variations; should it be eaten alone or with a congrega-tion; should grape juice or fermented wine be used; should it be observed every Sunday or on designated Sundays. And what does it mean? Some Christians believe the bread and the wine actually become the body and blood of Christ; others believe it contains the body and the blood of Christ. There are some Christians who say it is a memorial service to what Christ did for hu-manity on the cross and there are others who believe Christ is spiritually present at the meal. One group will believe that all are welcomed at the Table and others will say only those who are members of

a certain group can come to the Table, while others will proclaim only those who share the same meaning can come. I suspect that to non-Christians this seems a bit confusing. Let me hasten to add, ALL Christians observe the Lord’s Supper regardless of what they call it or what they believe it means or how it should be carried out. ALL Christians believe Jesus gave it to us for an observance in the Christian Church. ALL Christians believe it is a visible sign of Christ’s sacrifice for humanity. And ALL Christians will continue to observe this Holy Communion until Christ comes again. As Christians say, so do we believe, “These are the things of God for the people of God.”

Oct. 2 First Presbyterian Church of Cherryville will hold its Arts & Crafts Fall Bazaar on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021, from 10 a.m., to 5 p.m., in the Fellowship Hall.

Faith over Fear Cherryville Area Many things fight for our attention on a daily basis. What we allow into our thoughts and heart can have long-term positive or negative effects on us. If we allow negativity, worry, and fear to consume us, they can become detrimental physically, emotionally, and spiritually. For DANYALE PATTERSON instance, these abundant life thieves can cause chronic headaches, insomnia, and various dilapidating diseases. Emotionally, they can drain us and suck us dry of joy and energy. Spiritually, strongholds of paralyzing fear and defeat can keep us in bondage. This is why the Bible commands us to guard our hearts. Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) states, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” In addition, Philippians 4:8 (NLT) says, “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise”. I love the following poem called “Watch” that I would have my students memorize. I believe it shows the importance of vigilantly keeping our thoughts and emotions free of the junk that attempts to steal our peace. WATCH Watch your THOUGHTS. They become your WORDS. Watch your words. They become your ACTIONS. Watch your actions. They become your HABITS Watch your habits. They become your CHARACTER. Watch your character. It becomes your DESTINY. (anonymous) Guard your heart with these “Fear Not” Scriptures: • Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ - Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV) • “But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.” - Isaiah 43:1 (NKJV) • “Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the LORD has done great things!” - Joel 2:21 (ESV) • “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” - Luke 12:32 (ESV) PRAY THIS PRAYER: “Father, you alone are worthy of my praise and adoration. You are my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. You are my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid? You are my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? Therefore, I release my fears to you. I exchange my fears for your peace, joy, and love. I put my hopes and concerns in your hands. Thank you for drawing near to me when I call and reminding me not to fear. In Jesus’ name. Amen.” Danyale Patterson is co-founder of Enlighten Ministries, a 501c3 organization with her husband Brandon Patterson.

While at Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Buchanan said she “…initially considered Internal Medicine,” but is glad she chose the specialty of Family medicine. “In the end as it is a better fit for me,” she said, adding, “I am thankful for my DO training. I did my internship and residency through Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine, Harnett Health. It was a dual MD/DO accredited program.”

Direct Primary Care, the model that Dr. White’s HomeTown Direct Care is based off of, is, said Dr. Buchanan, “…an innovative alternative to insurance-driven medicine with a low monthly membership fee that gives patients more time with their doctor and access to their doctor at their fingertips.” She continued, “I heard about this model in residency when a woman who did this spoke to my residency group. She said it ‘saved her career’

and I wanted to preserve my career and not have to save it. After meeting Dr. Carpenter and Dr. White, I realized it was possible for me to do. I believe it is a better model for patients and doctors to receive the best possible primary care through increased time and access of patients to their doctor.” Doctor Buchanan is married, she said. “My husband’s name is Logan. We do not have any children. He is a Marketing manager.” She lists as her hobbies, in addition to her art, she also loves travel, outdoor adventure, and singing and playing the guitar. As for her aforementioned ‘passion for women’s health’, Dr. Buchanan said, “I want to serve the women of this community through prevention, wellness, and treatment. For a woman to be well and be at her best, I feel self-care is so important and part of that is having a good team including a physician readily available to her.” To learn more about Dr. Buchanan and HomeTown Direct Care, and to schedule a “get acquainted” visit, either call (704) 435-1100, or contact them through their website at

From Page 1 Megan Rivers wrote that the mandate also applies to Novant's remote employees and those employees who are not patient-facing. North Carolina is an "at will" employment state and there is not currently a law against a company requiring a vaccine for employment. In a Tweet Wednesday Dr. Martin Kulldorff, infectious disease expert at Harvard Medical School, tweeted: To best protect frail patients, smart hospitals and nursing homes would hire staff who have already had Covid, as they have stronger longer lasting immunity than the vaccinated. d14kTPnCWk — Martin Kulldorff (@ MartinKulldorff) September 22, 2021 Still, Atrium Health, also in North Carolina, is giving employees, medical students, contractors, and remote workers until October 31, 2021 to have completed the two-dose vaccine, unless they have an approved exemption. That includes students from Concord's Cabarrus College of Health Sciences who are studying to enter the healthcare workforce and are earning their practical experience there. "Students who do not follow this policy will be assessed a late fee and face consequences (suspension from class/lab/clinical/fieldwork) up to and including dismissal from the college," a vaccine information page on their website reads. One of the issues voiced by hospitals particularly in the Charlotte area, is not the actual bed or space to treat the sick, but rather the needs for a larger healthcare labor force to tend to them. "How far we have fallen in a year, from openly celebrated them as heroes on the front lines to now demanding their jobs," said Jon Sanders, senior fellow at the John Locke Foundation. "Last year many of them contracted the virus in the course of their work and have recovered and now have an immunity that’s many levels greater than vaccine-induced immunity. This policy is extraordinarily short-sighted, it is creating unnecessary suffering for health professionals for no good reason, and it also will endanger North Carolinians in the coming days who are unfortunate enough to suffer any kind of medical emergency." Currently, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services COVID19 Dashboard indicates that there are 16,118 hospital beds in use across the state, 5,011 beds that are unstaffed or unreported, and 4,337 hospital beds that are empty. "With the capacity to add beds comes the need for additional clinical care teams to support them," Novant spokeswoman Kristen Barnhardt told N.C. Health News in January." We continue to monitor the data closely and stand ready to activate additional surge planning scenar-

High School in 2008 where she was involved in cross country, track, and chorus. Doctor Buchanan said she heard about Campbell University through researching medical schools in the local area while working her first job out of college in Greenville, S.C., doing medical research with the Surgery Department. “At Campbell, they treated me well and cared for me as a person, not just a test score,” she said.



ios from staffing contingency to the utilization of additional space on our campuses.” In August, a group of Atrium employees demonstrated against the vaccine policy in Charlotte's Freedom Park. "If our patients get to choose, then we should also be allowed to choose," Chelsea Hoyle, an ER nurse for Atrium Health, told Spectrum News at the protest. "Atrium Health has a long history of protecting the health of our patients, our teammates and the communities we serve," Atrium Health stated in a media release. "With the new and more contagious variants now causing hospitalizations to rise across our region, we are requiring teammates to be vaccinated against the virus – to avoid catching or spreading it to others in our hospitals or other clinical environments." UAB hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, one of the state's largest employers, recently rescinded their vaccine mandate because of pushback from staff. The hospital statement notes they are including $400 "incentive" payments to staff who receive the vaccine while the facility waits on further federal guidelines. The hopsital mandates follow President Joe Biden's announcement on September 9, 2021 that hospitals receiving federal Medicare and Medicaid funding will be required to institute a vaccine mandate. It will be enforced through the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, indicating that facilities risk losing those reimbursements for non-compliance. Reaching beyond healthcare settings, Biden has also directed the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to enforce a vaccine mandate on any company with 100 or more employees, blaming the disappointing August job numbers on increased positive cases of coronavirus. In Biden's order, private companies would be penalized if workers do not get the COVID-19 vaccine or submit to weekly COVID testing. "OSHA will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to implement this requirement," the White House wrote the announcement. "This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees." The U.S. GDP is already expected to be down $70 million in 2021. Given that there are about 74 million Americans who are eligible for a vaccine, but have chosen not to get it, economists are wary of how a vaccine mandate for private companies might impact unemployment rates and overall GDP during a fragile economic recovery. In late August, Goldman Sachs was predicting 5.5% GDP growth, but since the federal mandate announcement has dropped their prediction to just 3.5%. Earlier this week in Australia, rebellion over such mandates turned violent as construction workers clashed with police because worksites were shutdown for two weeks.

From Page 1 Said Dr. White, “We now have three physicians at HomeTown Direct Care. Dr. Josh Carpenter joined us in 2017 and he is primarily in the Shelby office.” He continued, “I feel incredibly fortunate that Dr. Buchanan made the decision to join us. She will be in the Cherryville office. She is incredibly well trained, bright, personable, and community-minded. Patients are going to love her. She is exactly the kind of physician I would choose for myself and my family.” Doctor Buchanan noted that although she was originally interested in becom-

ing a graphic artist, she had a greater interest in biology, and thanks to her brother, Dr. Josh Knott, who is an Emergency Medicine physician, she made the decision to go into medicine and has never looked back. Her father, Paul Knott, is the senior pastor of Hastings Berean Bible Church, she said, and mom, Betty, is a Preschool teacher’s assistant. She has, in addition to her brother, Josh, three other siblings: sister, Tiffanie Ediger, and brothers: Jason, and Caleb Knott. Said Dr. Buchanan, “All my siblings are older and we are about two to three years apart in age.” Doctor Buchanan graduated from Adams Central

EG Warriors spoil Ironmen’s 2021 Homecoming game New SPC 1A/2A opponent gets 50-14 win at Rudisill by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Playing spoiler to the CHS Ironmen at last Friday night’s 2021 Homecoming game, the Cherryville school’s newest 1A/2A Southern Piedmont opponent – the East Gaston Warriors –downed a hardpressed Ironmen club by a score of 50-14. In spite of a couple of impressive kickoff returns in the first quarter by Landon Hahn, the Warriors drew first blood with 3:29 on the clock, getting the first TD of the night, making it 0-7, with their PAT good after the initial score. Still in the first quarter, the Warriors intercepted an Ironmen pass and scored again with 1:05 on the clock. With their PAT good, they were up 0-14, just like that. In second quarter action a high point for the CHS men was a 46-yard kickoff return by Jackson Owen. This stellar play was followed by another stellar play by the Ironmen as Landon Hahn caught a pass from QB Chase Miller, running it 53 yards for the touchdown. With the PAT by kicker

Henry Gil good, the Ironmen were 7-21, with 6:24 on the clock. However, just to add insult to injury, the Warriors answered back with a TD of their own, with 5:43 on the clock. The two-point conversion was good and they went up 7-29 on the Ironmen. Cooper Sloan returned the ensuing kickoff 30 yards, and after Cain Cash punting the ball away, the Warriors took over and the second quarter ended. The happiness of the half-time crowning of the school’s 2021 Homecoming Queen, Ms. Khya Brooks, was brief as the third quarter began with yet another Warrior’s TD with 7:41 on the clock. The PAT was good and East Gaston went up 7-36 over the CHS men. In fourth quarter action Cooper Sloan scampered for 62 yards for an Ironmen TD (their last of the night), and with Gil’s PAT, giving the CHS club 14 points for their effort against a strong ball club from the east side of the county. Sloan carried the ball 10 times for a total of 97 yards, while Chase Miller carried the ball 13 times for a total of -32 yards. The Ironmen, according to stats, had 81 yards rushing. Miller, in his role as the QB, had six completions for a total of 129 yards in the air.

These yards, with the rushing yardage, gave the Ironmen a total of 210 yards on the night. Next up for the Ironmen is a non-conference game at Rudisill Stadium against Morganton’s Robert L. Patton High School Panthers Friday, Oct. 1, starting at 7:30 p.m. (Additional information by Susan L. Powell and Danny Eaker)

QB Chase Miller has called his own number and scrambles for yardage against the Warriors in last Friday’s matchup at Rudisill Stadium.

JCMS Lady Wolverines softball team are currently undefeated by MICHAEL E. POWELL Editor

Lance Beam, head John Chavis Middle School softball coach, said recently his team is 6-0 against Gaston County opponents as their season comes down to its final games of their schedule. Chavis defeated Belmont Middle by a score of 10-6 on Monday, Sept. 13, said Beam, who noted, “Raylei Gidney got the pitching win, striking out three (3) batters. She was helped with strong defensive plays from the entire defense. “The offense was led by Landry Beam, Maddie Avery and Jenna Anthony, who had two (2) hits each and multiple RBI’s.” Kate Mulvey, Kennedy Weathers, Gidney, Addison Davis and Abi Canipe also contributed with a hit a piece, he said. The Lady Wolverines offense got multiple runs from Beam, Gidney and Anthony. On Monday, Sept. 20, the Chavis softball team defeated Mt. Holly 18-6 in five

Weathers, Kate Bookout, Abi Canipe and Emily Allen also contributed with a hit each.” Chavis then turned around and defeated Grier 17-1, in three innings on Thursday, Sept. 23, as Raylei Gidney and Kennedy Weathers pitched, striking out seven (7) batters. Said Coach Beam, “Weathers, Landry Beam, Raylei Gidney, Kate Bookout, Abi Canipe, Desirae Smith and Laney Spangler all had hits to lead our offense.” The team is currently 6-0, and faced Cramerton at Cramerton on Monday, Sept. 27.

Cherryville Sports Hall of Fame induction banquet is Oct. 2 by MIKE POWELL Special to the Eagle

CHERRYVILLE – Tickets are now available for the Oct. 2, Cherryville Sports Hall of Fame induction banquet, which will honor 10 individuals and a team from Cherryville’s sports history. Priced at $10 each, tickets can be purchased from members of the hall of fame committee: Jerry Hudson, Scott Harrill, Mike Powell, Dennis Tate, Danny Eaker, Calvin Hastings, Larry Sipe, Bud Black, Al Graves, Floyd Wright, and Rocky Bennett. The 6 p.m. event will be held at the First Baptist Church Christian Outreach Center, a venue that seats more than 300. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, and a meal is included with the induction ceremony. Terry Whisnant, Jr., one of the top scorers in North Carolina high school basketball history, and Thomas Bess, a three-sport standout, are among those voted in to the 2021 class by the committee. One team was chosen for induction – the 1985 Cherryville High boys basketball squad that won the N.C. 2A championship under the direction of the late David Watkins.

The organization, which has been inactive for more than a decade, met in March to regroup, elect officers, and set a new agenda. The Cherryville Sports Hall of Fame has not inducted any new members since 2009, according to records. Two inductees, recreation and youth sports activist Skeet Brackett, and Larry Boyles, an acclaimed amateur boxer in the 1950s and a member of the Carolinas Boxing Hall of Fame, will be honored posthumously. Cherryville boys’ basketball coach Scott Harrill earned a spot in the hall of fame in the same year in which he became Gaston County’s career leader in coaching victories. Harrill’s career record at Cherryville stands at 384-170. Also named are former women’s basketball players Ebonee Johnson, Abbey Owens and Sonya Hoyle, along with Cameron Lovelace, a two-sport star in football and basketball, and Trentavious Friday, a track star who holds three state records and a national record in sprint events.
