January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Awareness Month By Loretta Cozart President Barak Obama proclaimed January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Awareness Month in January 4, 2010, one decade ago. Slavery and Human Trafficking crimes can happen everywhere, in cities large and small. Within the last year, these crimes have occurred at least three times in Cleveland County, in Kings Mountain twice and in Grover once. The charges range from rape and sexual servitude of a child victim, transporting sex slaves in his van, and allegedly keeping a woman and her daughter in sexual servitude. According to, “Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will. Force, fraud, or coercion need not be present if the individual engaging in commercial sex is under 18 years of age.” Not all Human trafficking cases include sex. Many instances have been reported and prosecuted in industries including restaurants, cleaning services, construction, factories and more. North Carolina Dept. of Administration has seen an increase in Sexual Slavery and Human Trafficking, attributing this to “the major highways that run through our state, a large, transient military population surrounded by sexually oriented businesses, numerous rural agricultural areas with a high demand for cheap labor, and an increasing number of gangs.” The National Human Trafficking Hotline estimates between 20 million and 40 million people live in

this modern form of slavery. In the report, “Human Trafficking Within and Into the United States: A Review of the Literature.” accessed July 31, 2019, it is estimated that about 50,000 people are trafficked into the US each year, mostly from Mexico and the Philippines. According to the Polaris Project, a leader in the global fight to eradicate modern slavery, common signs in victims of Human Trafficking include: • Appearing malnourished • Showing signs of physical injuries and abuse • Avoiding eye contact, social interaction, and authority figures/law enforcement • Seeming to adhere to scripted or rehearsed responses in social interaction • Lacking official identification documents • Appearing destitute/ lacking personal possessions • Working excessively long hours • Living at place of employment • Checking into hotels/ motels with older males, and referring to those males as boyfriend or “daddy,” which is often street slang for pimp • Poor physical/dental health • Tattoos/ branding on the neck and/or lower back • Untreated sexually transmitted diseases • Small children serving in a family restaurant • Security measures that

appear to keep people inside an establishment - barbed wire inside of a fence, bars covering the insides of windows • Not allowing people to go into public alone, or speak for themselves Another way to protect yourself and your family is to monitor the NC State Bureau of Investigation’s Sex Offender Registry online. search.aspx Currently, 30 offenders are listed in Kings Mountain and 13 offenders are listed in Grover. Last week, a Grover man was arrested on seven counts of Sex Offender on Child Premises and one count of Sex Off Use Social Website. He was a registered Sex Offender who had been charged in another state. Be diligent when it comes to your safety and the safety of your family. Check the Sex Offender Registry regularly. If you notice odd changes in your child’s behavior, have a talk with them. If you are concerned for the well-being of someone that exhibits these signs, contact the Kings Mountain Police Department by calling 911. Or, call the National Human Trafficking Hotline to connect with services and support for human trafficking survivors, or to report a tip: call 1-888-373-7888, text 233733, or chat online.

Atrium Health revises visitation policy due to flu Effective Jan. 7 at 7 am, Atrium Health Kings Mountain, along with Atrium Health Cleveland and nineteen other area hospitals, tightened restrictions as a result of the growing prevalence of flu cases in the region. Atrium Health asks individuals of all ages who are experiencing flu-like symptoms to help control the spread of the illness by not visiting patients in the hospital while ill with flu like symptoms. Symptoms of flu include: fever, headaches/body aches/ pain, cough or sore throat, stuffy or runny nose, chills, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea. If extraordinary circumstances require an individual with flu-like symptoms to visit a hospital patient, the visitor will be asked to wear a surgical mask to protect themselves and others. To reduce your risk

of getting the flu, Atrium Health recommends frequent hand washing with soap or use of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, not touching eyes, nose or mouth with hands, covering your cough/sneeze, and getting a flu shot. According to the Centers for Disease Control, a total of 4,228 laboratory-confirmed influenza-associated hospitalizations were reported by FluSurv-NET sites between

October 1, 2019 and January 4, 2020. Most people with the flu have mild illness and do not need medical care. If you have flu-like symptoms, in most cases you should stay home and avoid contact with other people. Flu sufferers should rest, drink fluids and take ibuprofen or acetaminophen to reduce minor pain or fever. If you are concerned about the severity of your symptoms, contact your

The time is always right to do what is right. –Martin Luther King

Pieces of Kings Mountain History Grace United Methodist Church held its last service on Dec. 29, ending more than LORETTA 200 years COZART as a place of worship for the citizens of Kings Mountain. I never attended Grace, but many of my friends did, and I knew this would be sad news for them. Reaching out on Facebook, I shared the story and asked for comments about the Church from those who attended. Attendance at the Church had dwindled for years, so I didn’t expect many replies. To my surprise, in came a flood of responses. Kim Roper Bolin wrote, “I was raised in Grace. I have wonderful memories of my grandmother taking me

to Church in her ‘55 Chevy. My foundation in Christ was built at Grace.” Mike Bumgarner shared, “I grew up at Grace. My family and several other aunts and uncles also were members. My father was a lay leader and Sunday School Superintendent there for several years in the ‘70s. Both my mom and Dad’s funeral were held there. I have many, many memories.” “I recall my father having me sing solo’s during worship service. I did the Lord’s Prayer and the Impossible Dream,” Bumgarner said. “All of that has led me to being at another United Methodist Church where I am the Sunday School Superintendent, sing in the choir, teach Sunday School and I am, my Church’s delegate to annual conference. My point being that little Church is the root of my life in my walk with

Jesus Christ. I am so very, very sad to see it closed.” Byron Fite shared “My grandparents used to live right beside the Church in the mid ‘50s, Fred & Verda Bowen. Harvey and Mae Morrow lived across the street from the Church, and we went there when I was about 3 to 4-years old.” Vickie McGee wrote, “I will be 72 and I was raised in the Grace Methodist Church on Church St. My first pastor that I really remember is Pastor Sides.” “My family members were there and we were part of the church that started Penley’s Chapel Methodist Church on the Cherryville Hwy,” she wrote. “I went back to Grace Church as a teenager in high school. I used to listen to the older girls talk about going to the Open Kitchen on their Saturday night dates… that

Looking back December 14, 1940 was the day the Bonnie and Clyde Death Car came to Kings Mountain as part of a promotion for Roland Brothers Motor Company and the National Anti-Crime Association. The Herald article says the vehicle “which Clyde Barrow, once Public Enemy No. 1, and his sweetheart, Bonnie Parker, met their death, which ended the ghastly, bloody career of two of the United States’ most notorious members of the gangster world, will be on display at the Roland Brothers Motor Company showroom in Kings Mountain Saturday, Dec. 14, from 1 pm until 9 pm.” The bandit car, as it was described, was brought to Kings Mountain by courtesy of Mr. J. B. Rowland and was ex-

was serious stuff to catch up on before we started Sunday School upstairs in our classroom.” “I was married in Grace Church in 1966,” McGee continued. “The ladies class gave me a Bridal Shower in the fellowship building at the rear if our Church. And, of course, everyone has a rehearsal and cake cutting the night before your wedding day. Thank you for letting me share my thoughts with everyone about what I remember about my Church. Grace United Methodist Church.” Pamela Thomasson-Vanderford wrote, “We, my grandparents Hayes, and other relatives went to that Church. My parents wedding was on Dec. 27, 1959.” Stacy Radford shared that her momma and daddy were also married at the Church. Valdere Smart Hughes

commented that she was sad to hear the news of the closing. “I remember going to bible school there once when I was little,” she said. Debbie Brackett Keenum wrote, “Sad to hear about the closing. I attended there as a child. Fifty-five years later, I still have the large blue bible presented to me when I joined the Church.” Many attended Grace United Methodist Church as members, but the Church was also a gathering place for Boy Scouts. Perry Nolan wrote, “I went a few times. I think I was about 15 when I went there for the Boy Scouts. Gibb Brazil was the Scoutmaster.” Steven A. Wells shared the he was “never a member there and didn’t attended services, but I did join the Boy Scouts in about ‘60-’61 with Wesley Kiser the Scoutmaster.”

Cindy Jolly Troublefield shared, “I was never a member. Since I was a member at Central United Methodist, our youth group often got together with theirs.” Mike Bumgarner remembered, “My family had a house that was just across the street, we lived there when my Dad went to Germany and, of course, Grace was our home. I remember all the ladies, to include mom, always had their hats on back in the ‘60s.” He went on to share his thoughts on the Church’s closing, “This is the trend now across the nation. I live in Tennessee and our Church is part of the Holston UMC Conference,” he said. “We have been closing six or so churches almost every year since I started attending the annual conference.

nected with the National Anti-crime Association. A brief talk was also given at the car,” explaining what happened at the time the bandits were killed by the officers detailing something of their careers and answering countless questions that an audience is privileged to ask.” In the February 6, 1941

edition of the Herald, it was announced that Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Rowland and family have moved to the former Willis residence. Mr. Rowland was the owner and service manager of Rowland Brothers Motor Company, the new Dodge and Plymouth Dealer in town.

when 19 men hijacked four U.S. commercial airliners. The plot was orchestrated by al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The total of people killed at the World Trade Center in New York, at the Pentagon in Washington, DC, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, was 2,977. Gen. Qassem Soleimani led the elite Quds Force, part of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, that reports to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Soleimani was also accused of controlling proxy militias across the Middle East including ones in Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria. He has been called a murderer by several of our U.S. officials. The Pentagon blamed Soleimani for a series of attacks on allied bases in Iraq in recent months, including a rocket strike that killed a U.S. contractor and wounded four other service members. The Pentagon also has said Soleimani had been actively developing plans to attack U.S. diplomats and service members See TERRORISTS, Page 7A Kings Mountain Herald’s publisher and its advertisers are not responsible or liable for misprints, typographical errors, misinformation herein contained.

■ MEDITATION convinced myself to defeat the fear and jump. I told her to count to three. One, Two, Three!! I did it!! It was an awesome experience. I asked to do it again. It was actually fun!! She allowed me to repeat the actions and proclaim that each lesson would begin with me jumping into the deep. Liberation and confidence came over me.

Don’t Let A Terrible Incident, Discomfort, Or Fear Stop You! We Are Never Alone: As I reflected on my instructor asking me to jump, the Lord reminded me that he is always asking his children to take a leap of faith. Yet, faith is connected to obedience

to his word and Spirit-led instructions. Sometimes the path that God is asking us to travel seems impossible, scary, and just plain uncomfortable. However, he promises to be with us and to empower us! The following scriptures reassure us of God’s promise that we are never alone. • “ Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9 • “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk

through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” – Isaiah 43:2 • The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” - Zephaniah 3:17 Will You Jump Into the Deep?

KM Post 155 will host the Division 5 oratorical contest O n Saturday, Feb. 29 American Legion Otis D. Green Post 155 hosts The American Legion Division 5 NC High School Oratorical Contest. The winner will go on and compete at the State Contest, which will be hosted at Sandhills College on March 7. As Division 5 winner, the student will receive $1,000 scholarship. If student wins the state contest, that student will receive $2,500 scholarship. KM previously hosted state oratorical contest in 2017. School winners compete in and advance past county, district and division contests to reach the department contest. Department winners travel to The American Legion’s national headquarters in Indianapolis,

Indiana where they can advance through three rounds of contests (quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals) to become the national champion. Each year The Department of North Carolina joins the 54 other departments and the over 10,000 local posts in The American Legion High School Oratorical Contest. The contest, open to US citizens or lawful residents under the age of 20 and currently enrolled in grade 9-12, is designed to provide the student with the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the US Constitution and with public speaking skills that can help them with advancement in their chosen profession. Complete rules can be obtained by clicking the links below, contacting NC Department Headquarters or by visiting the National Headquarters Oratorical web page.

North Carolina students begin their advance toward the national finals at their local high school. Each contestant gives an 8 to 10-minute prepared speech on what it means to be a citizen under the US Constitution. Each student must also speak from 3 to 5 minutes on an assigned topic drawn at the contest from a list of 4 predefined topics. This topic will be the same for all contestants in the contest once drawn. In addition to scholarship awards presented by local posts the Department of North Carolina provides scholarships for participants of the division and department contests. The national organization provides scholarships for those who compete in the three rounds in Indianapolis with the top 3 contestants receiving $18,000, $16,000 and $14,000.

Early Childhood Action Plan

Governor Cooper announces $56 million in federal funding In August of 2018, Gov. Roy Cooper signed an Executive Order instructing the NC Department of Health and Human Services to lead the development of an Early Childhood Action Plan. Nearly 1,500 people representing families, teachers, experts in early childhood and other leaders provided feedback in drafting the plan. On Friday, January 10, Governor Cooper announced that North Carolina has been awarded $56 million in federal funding to advance the plan’s goals. Over the next seven years the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services will use the funds to help NC make greater strides in young children’s well-being and early learning, as well as invest in helping teachers of young children get better support as professionals. “North Carolina children deserve the chance to grow, thrive, and succeed, starting in early childhood. Today, too many of our state’s children face difficult challenges, some beginning as early as infancy. Too many children still don’t have access to high-quality early childhood education,” wrote

Gov. Cooper. The new funding comes from two federal grants awarded to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), including a $40.2 million Preschool Development Grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families and a $16 million grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The Preschool Development Grant invests in early childhood educators and other initiatives to improve early learning. Early childhood teachers work long hours preparing and interacting with our children, and this grant recognizes their time constraints and will help them build skills without having to leave the classroom. By providing job-embedded professional development and coaching, the grant removes barriers that make it difficult for teachers to pursue higher education. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services grant focuses on a smaller group with big challenges — Medicaid-insured children through Integrated

Care for Kids (InCK). InCK funds are invested to better coordinate healthcare with other critical early childhood staples like schooling, food and housing. Medicaid and its partners will design and implement ways to pay smarter for care and will help by offering incentives for positive health and well-being outcomes for children. In a statement, Governor Cooper said, “As I have traveled across our state and heard from our early childhood professionals, I’ve been moved by their drive and passion for their children. I’ve listened to their stories, with tears running down their faces, as they have told me the barriers, they face in the classroom every day. I have seen firsthand the important work that they are doing to support our children.” “It is on us to support our children and early childhood educators as we work toward having a healthier and better educated state where people have the opportunity to live a more abundant and purposeful life,” he said.

Cowpens celebrates anniversary Jan. 17 Southern campaign played a significant role in Amerwican Revolution By Loretta Cozart Each year, the National Park Service commemorates various battles in the Eastern United States that led to our independence from Great Brittan. On Friday and Saturday, Jan. 17 and 18, Cowpens will be the next to commemorate its role in the American Revolution. Friday will be filled with wreath-laying by SAR and DAR, a cavalry demonstration, a Courageous Kate talk by author Sheila Ingle, a program on British Soldiers, American War, by Don Hagist, weapons firing demonstrations, guided battlefield walks, 18th century music, a mini concert by Sons of Liberty, a cannon demonstration for children of all ages,

lantern battlefield walks after dark (reservations required). On Saturday, they will have a Divine Service (18th century church service) and guided battlefield walks. In Kings Mountain, we remember the Battle of Kings Mountain on October 7. Cowpens is just 40-minute ride south on 1-85 and well worth the ride. Both Kings Mountain and Cowpens are sister parks included in the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution Parks Group, along with Ninety-Six National Historic Site and Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail. Like Kings Mountain, Cowpens claims to be the turning point of the American Revolution, as do many other Revolutionary War battlefields. One distinction makes Kings Mountain unique among them. On Nov. 10, 1822, Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to Col. John Campbell, Esq. lauding Col. William Campbell’s

conduct during the Battle of Kings Mountain. This letter was written 41-years after the American Revolution had ended, giving Jefferson plenty of time to reflect upon the battle’s significance. He wrote, “I remember well the deep and grateful impression made on the minds of everyone by that memorable victory. It was the joyful annunciation of that turn of the tide of success which terminated the Revolutionary War, with the seal of our independence.” It is hard to argue with the third president of the United States and the man who penned the Declaration of Independence. Nonetheless, we should all support events commemorate the Southern Campaign, as many people do not know its significance in American history. Significant battles within a day’s drive include: • Savannah: On 29 Decem-

ber 1778, the British occupied the most important city in Georgia. • Charleston: From 2 April to 12 May 1780, British Army and Navy besieged Charleston forcing it to surrender. • Buford’s Defeat: On 29 May 1780, Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton’s British Legion killed 153 Virginia Continental soldiers about 9 miles east of present-day Lancaster, SC. • Ramsour’s Mill: On 20 June 1780, militiamen from the Charlotte region defeated Loyalist militiamen in present-day Lincolnton, NC. • Huck’s Defeat: On 12 July 1780, South Carolina militiamen from present-day York County defeated Major Christian Huck cavalrymen at present-day Brattonsville. • Hanging Rock: On 6 August 1780, Colonel Thomas Sumter with many Mecklenburg militia under Colonel See COWPENS, Page 8A

in Iraq and elsewhere throughout the region. The Quds, which he led, were designated a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S., and were considered the most powerful intelligence operative in the Middle East, for many years. While none of us want killing, President Trump did the right thing. If bin Laden could have been taken out before the African bombings or before Sept. 11, 2001 thousands of lives could have been saved.

a lot about the direction of our society.” “I recall when practically every seat was filled at Grace. My aunt, Myra Hagan, was a lifelong member who just helped clean out the Church. She was the delegate for the Church to its annual conference. She tells me they had dropped to roughly 12 members. I am truly heartbroken that it no longer exists.” Grace United Methodist Church had a tremendous impact on those who worshiped there. Couples raised

their families and held Christenings, baptisms, weddings, and funerals there. Members supported each other in their walk of faith. While Grace United Methodist Church is no more, it is evident from the comments shared here that it was a special place. That sentiment brings to mind the hymn by Lanny Wolfe: Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place. I can feel His mighty power and His Grace. I can hear the brush of angel’s wings, I see glory on each face. Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.


have been rushing back was when he and I and another friend were gathered around a table two days after the death of Bashford’s mother more than 20 years ago. All three of us were mama’s boys. We were talking about a rule that sorts out men who are likely to be worth a longterm commitment, distinguishing them from those who might be riskier. The Rule, formulated by Bashford’s wife, Cynthia, was “If he loves his mother and his work, he is a pretty good risk.” The Rule, we assured each other, had been adopted at the highest levels of one of our big banks and at the top of one of the largest financial firms on Wall Street. We knew some of those higher-ups. They were using The Rule to sort out those who are destined to be happily successful in business. They understood, we told each other, that people

who take care of their mothers and like their jobs are going to be good business leaders. Later, I asked Cynthia how she came to propound The Rule. “It was not meant as a rule. I had decided somewhere along the way that--if I were going to be involved with someone over a long period of time--that one who loved his mother or who had loved his mother would himself be the happiest of men. Such a person would, I thought, because of the background and depth of that relationship, more likely have an appreciation of the really good things about life.” Robert Bashford lived that kind of life, and he made the lives of so many others so much better as a result. His life was a demonstration of the wisdom of The Rule. And his mama would be mighty proud.

‘Return to Me’ theme of Celebration Week Services at Gardner-Webb Jan. 21-23 Guest Speaker Darrick Smith Seeks to Help Students Become Disciple-Makers BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—“Return to Me” is the theme for Celebration Week, Jan. 21-23, at Gardner-Webb University. Hosted by GWU’s Campus Ministries, Celebration Week is a time for the campus community to come together to worship and glorify the Lord. The services, which are open to the public, begin Jan. 21 with the Dimensions program at 9:25 a.m. in Tucker Student Center. Speaker Darrick Smith, senior consultant for Collegiate Partnerships with N.C. Baptists, will include a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as part of the University’s observance of the federal holiday. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the national day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. “As I reflect on my collegiate experience and how God radically changed my life during my sophomore year at North Carolina Cen-

tral University (NCCU),” Smith stated. “I can’t help but to praise God and thank him for men like Martin Luther King Jr. You see, NCCU is a Historically Black College and University that was founded to train young African American men and women for mission work during a time when African Americans were enslaved and stripped of their rights to learn how to read and write. Men like Martin Luther King Jr. fought continuously for the equality and dignity of African Americans like myself. In my eyes, he’s a hero, and I wouldn’t be where I am today had it not been for the grace of God through Martin Luther King Jr.” Smith will also speak Thursday at 9:25 a.m. and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. in Tucker Student Center. His theme focuses on Jeremiah 2:13, which says, “They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.” “Jeremiah was a young prophet called by God to a very difficult task—call out the evil, injustice, and wick-

edness among God’s people and he called them to return to God in repentance,” Smith elaborated. “I think college students need to see that they are called by God and more than capable of being used by God at a young age to advance his kingdom. This will require boldness and trust in the Lord. I think college students need to be reminded of areas in their lives in which they have forsaken the Living God through idolatry and need to return or turn to God.” Smith grew up on a small farm in Godwin, N.C., where he met Jesus at the age of 16. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in public health from NCCU. He also received a master’s degree in special education, and taught elementary school for six years before going into full-

time ministry. He has worked on staff at The Summit Church as a college minister, and as an associate pastor of Catalyst Church in Newport News, Va. He has also led several short-term mission trips across the world. He has a strong passion to see college students reached with the gospel to become lifelong disciple-makers. He is currently finishing up a master’s degree in Christian studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C. Auxiliary aids will be made available to persons with disabilities upon request 48 hours prior to the event. Please call 704-4062155 or email with your request.

Kings Mountain High’s varsity basketball teams took a double loss Tuesday night in Gastonia, losing to two very strong Ashbrook teams. The girls fell behind 11-0 to start the game and ended up suffering their first loss in the Big South Conference, 60-18. The Mountaineers fared a little better but couldn’t overcome a 21-point Green Wave second quarter and dropped their second conference game in four outings, 60-53. Both Ashbrook teams remained undefeated in the BSC. Ashbrook sophomore Zoey Ward personally outscored the entire KM girls team with 22 points, and freshman Madison Cole added 16. Sophomore All-Conference standout Saniya Wilson was KM’s only weapon, finishing with 15 of the team’s 18 points. She also grabbed four rebounds. Khalia King had two points and two rebounds, Kennedy Barnes one point and four rebounds, and CoRey Simpson five rebounds. The Mountaineers jumped out front 15-9 after the first period only to see Ashbrook outscore them 21-10 in the second quarter to go into the half with a 30-25 lead. KM was still within striking distance at 42-34 going into the fourth quarter but couldn’t overcome the Wave. The Mountaineers played much of the game without their starting point guard, Kobe Paysour, who got into early foul trouble and managed only three points; and leading scorer Isaiah Tate was held to just nine. Weston Hughes was Kings Mountain’s only double-digit scorer with 17 points. Ashbrook was led by Shemar Adams with 22 points and James Dotson with 17. Jordan Watkins dished out eight assists and Brandon Rainey pulled down 13 rebounds. The night wasn’t a total loss, though, as the KM girls junior varsity team posted its third straight win, 25-18. Brooke Ferree led the Lady Mountaineers with 10 points Marlee Arnold scored eight, Jacie Jarvis five and Natalie Anthony two.

Shelby ladies overwhelm KM, Lions come back in second half Kings Mountain High’s varsity basketball teams were swept for the second straight game Friday night at Donald L. Parker Gymnasium. After losing a twinbill at Ashbrook on Tuesday, the KM teams hosted arch rival Shelby in non-conference action. The Shelby girls rolled to an 84-33 win in the opener and the Golden Lions came from behind in the second half to conquer the Mountaineers, 80-72. The Lady Lions had a

tough time penetrating the KM defense early but actually wrapped up the game by the end of the first period. Shelby placed four players in double figures, which more than offset another strong offensive showing by KM sophomore Saniya Wilson, who was the game’s top scorer with 22 points. She was KM’s only double-digit scorer while Ansonya Thompson, Kate and Ally Hollifield and Maraja Pass combined for 63 points for the Lady

Lions. The Mountaineers had the upper hand for most of the first half, leading 26-20 after the first period and 45-44 at the half. That was due largely to the excellent play of junior point guard Kobe Paysour who scored 25 of his game-high 36 points during the first 16 minutes. Shelby regrouped at halftime, holding the Mountaineers to just seven points in the third quarter to take a 56-52 lead into the final eight min-

utes. Kings Mountain was forced into a fouling situation but couldn’t overcome the Lions, who were deadly at the line. Deshaun Christopher led Shelby with 23 points and Isaiah Bess and Jahari Mitchell added 13 each. Kings Mountain resumes Big South Conference play Friday at home against the Forestview Jaguars. The Mountaineers go to East Lincoln Saturday for a non-conference game and travel to Crest Tuesday for a BSC contest.

as Micah Ward and Curtis Simpson combined for 10 points to help the Patriots take a 23-20 lead.

Shelby sweeps Patriots Kings Mountain Middle opened its basketball season last week with a non-division battle with Shelby. Shelby swept the twinbill, 33-14 in the girls game and 50-35 in the boys game. Shelby jumped out to a quick lead in both contests and was never headed. In the girls contest, KM fell behind 8-1 after the first period, and were held scoreless in the second period as Shelby took an 18-1 lead. Shelby led 29-10 going into the fourth quarter. Arielle Ritch led the Lady Patriots with nine points. Kamari Odems and Kaydence Smith scored two each, and Mashayln Surrant one.

Playing well on defense were Akierona Richardson and Odems. Shelby jumped to a 4-0 lead in the boys game before Nic Cole fed Michael Ward in the corner to cut the margin to 4-3. Bradley Floyd cut the lead to 13-7 before Shelby scored five straight to go up 18-7 at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter saw a defensive stalemate by both teams and Shelby led 25-12 at intermission. KM picked up its defensive intensity in the third quarter and created some fast break turnovers. Leading the way were Micah Ward and Zavian Smith who combined for three 3’s to cut the lead to 12 heading

into the fourth period. KM had a couple of chances to cut the lead to single digits, but was unable to break out of its cold shooting. KM was led by Ward with eight points and Smith with six points and three assists. Cole had four points, two rebounds and two assists, and Floyd had four points. Curtis Simpson had three points, five boards and two blocks, Jayden Byers three points, two rebounds and a block, Bryson Brown two points, Josiah Guyton two points and a steal, Qua Sanders one point, three rebounds and three steals, and Jack Toney and Caleb Nixon one point each.

Qua Sanders goes in for two against Crest Middle.

Does Medicare Cover Counseling Services? Dear Savvy Senior, Does Medicare cover outpatient counseling services for its beneficiaries? Since the death of my sister last year, I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety and would like to get some help. Sad Senior

Dear Sad, I’m sorry for your loss. Yes, Medicare covers both outpatient and inpatient mental health services to help beneficiaries with depression, anxiety and many other needs. Here’s what you should know. Outpatient Coverage If you have original Medicare, your Part B coverage will pay 80 percent (after you’ve met your $198 Part B deductible) for a variety of counseling and mental health care services that are provided outside a hospital, like individual or group therapy, family counseling and more. They also cover services for treatment of beneficiaries who struggle with alcohol and drug abuse. You, or your supplemental insurance

is responsible for the remaining 20 percent coinsurance.

Medicare also gives you the option of getting treatment through a variety of mental health professionals such as psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers and clinical nurse specialists. To get this coverage, you’ll need to choose a “participating provider” that accepts Medicare assignment, which means they accept Medicare’s approved amount as full payment for a service. If you choose a “nonparticipating provider” who accepts Medicare but does not agree to Medicare’s payment rate, you may have to pay more. And if you choose an “opt-out provider” that does not accept Medicare payments at all, you will be responsible for the entire cost. To locate a mental health care professional in your area that accepts Medicare assignment, use Medicare’s online Physician Compare tool. Go to

and type in your ZIP code, or city and state, then type in the type of profession you want to locate, like “psychiatry” or “clinical psychologist” in the search box. You can also get this information by calling Medicare at 800633-4227. Inpatient Coverage If you need mental health services in either a general or psychiatric hospital, original Medicare Part A covers this too (after you’ve met your $1,408 Part A deductible). Your doctor should determine which hospital setting you need. If you receive care in a psychiatric hospital, Medicare covers up to 190 days of inpatient care for your lifetime. And if you use your lifetime days but need additional care, Medicare may cover additional inpatient care at a general hospital. Additional Coverage In addition to the outpatient and inpatient mental health services, Medicare also covers yearly depression screenings that must be done in a primary care doctor’s office or clinic. Annual depression screenings are covered 100 percent.

And if you have a Medicare prescription drug plan, most medications used to treat mental health conditions are covered too. Medicare Advantage If you happen to get your Medicare benefits through a private Medicare Advantage plan, they must provide the same coverage as original Medicare does, but they may impose different rules and will likely require you to see an in-network provider. You’ll need to contact your plan directly for details. And for more information, call Medicare at 800-633-4227 and request a copy of publication #10184 “Medicare & Your Mental Health Benefits,” or you can read it online at Medicare. gov. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Princeville NC to receive $39.6 Million for flood mitigation project On Friday, January 10, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced the allocation of $39.6 million for a critical flood and storm damage reduction project in Princeville, North Carolina. Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) welcomed the announcement. “After the historic damage inflicted

by recent hurricanes, it’s clear that it’s not enough to simply rebuild,” said Senator Burr. “We have to rebuild in a way that applies the lessons of the past to mitigate future risks. This $39.6 million from the Corps of Engineers will do just that by increasing the elevations of highways and installing additional levees around the Tar River.


I applaud the Corps of Engineers for prioritizing this long-needed project so we can better protect Princeville families and businesses.” “Since Hurricane Matthew caused mass flooding in eastern North Carolina, I have been working with Senator Burr on resiliency measures to protect our state from future storms,” said Senator Tillis. “I want to thank the Administration for committing nearly $40 million for flood and storm damage reduction efforts in Princeville. I am proud of the progress we’ve made to recover from these devastating storms and these funds will ensure North Carolina continues to get the relief it deserves.” In May 2019, Sena-

tors Burr and Tillis supported the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Act, which provided $19.1 billion in additional emergency funding to states impacted by recent hurricanes, wildfires, floods, and other natural disasters. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers allocated $39.6 million to Princeville’s flood risk management project. Specifically, this funding will be used to better mitigate flood risks by increasing the elevations of highways and installing levees around the Tar River. According to the town’s website, “At the close of the Civil War, former slaves seeking protection and freedom left the plantations for Union troop encampments. Following

Princeville, NC was originally founded as Freedom Hill in 1865. It has been destroyed by flooding nine times since 1800. Photo by North Carolina Dept. of Natural and Cultural Resources the departure of Union soldiers, many of the nowfreed slaves remained behind and settled in an area named Freedom Hill. Freedom Hill was incorporated in 1885 in Edge-

combe County. The name was changed to Princeville in honor of Turner Prince, an African-American man who had been involved in building many of the community’s homes.”
