Small Business Saturday is November 27 Small Business Saturday reminds us of the prime shopping opportunities right here in Kings Mountain. Not only do the small businesses where we work, live, and play offer numerous gift-giving possibilities, they are hands-on and ready to complete your shopping list with quality, thoughtful gifts. Every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the Shop Small movement has energized small business owners to prepare for customers in every way possible. That includes the traditional brick and mortar customer to the online shopper. The single-day event continues to grow each year. That means business owners are ready for you to shop their stores with just the item you need to make someone’s holiday bright. Small businesses feed

our communities. They keep our main streets thriving and employ nearly half of the American workforce. Supporting small business means you’re supporting your local economy, local business, tax base, schools, and infrastructure. Your holiday shopping will put food on the tables of people you know. You be doing your community some good, and you will also be finding quality gifts. Small businesses take pride in their work. They’ve worked hard for their dream, and it shows in their craftsmanship. Keep these tips in mind when shopping this holiday: • Check your holiday shopping list for those who would like handcrafted items and buy locally. • Handcrafted means

Over 100 entries are expected for the Christmas parade, including the Kings Mountain High School Marching Mountaineers,

a lot of things. For example, woodworking to sewing, pottery to quilting, welding to jewelry, baked goods to preserves and so much more! • Small businesses may specialize in one area, or they may offer a variety of services. Don’t hesitate to walk in and explore the store. You may be surprised to find what they offer and discover the one thing you’ve been looking for. • Who has a hard to shop for family member? We all do, right? Ask the shop owner for help. They often have ideas you’ve never considered that will fill your empty stocking. American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010 to get more customers into small businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

MARSHAL

“I’m still beyond shocked to be chosen as the Grand Marshall for our Christmas parade,” says Sarah Lee. “This such a HUGE honor! The Kings Mountain Christmas Parade was something my family looked forward to every year. We never missed it. I’ve enjoyed many parades, but this will be my first experience actually being in one. I couldn’t be more excited and more honored to represent the town I love SO SO SO much and always try to highlight on air on 96.9 The Kat. I’m so thankful for our

community, the support you have shown me and for the constant love you give. God has truly blessed us with one of the greatest small towns in the country and I can’t wait to spend the day spreading Christmas cheer with all of you.” Sarah Lee met her husband Rob in 2004, married in 2012 and have two boys, Bear 6 and Zion 3. The Paul Schadt and Sarah Lee Morning Show can be heard each weekday morning on 96.9 The Kat beginning at 5:00 a.m.

From Page 1A strong support of her hometown. From publicly cheering on the KM High School Mountaineers football team, to inviting the world, through radio and social media to numerous events in KM, Cleveland and Gaston Counties, there is no question how much she loves Kings Mountain “Sarah Lee is a great ambassador for our city,” says Mayor Scott Neisler. “It is only natural she lead our Christmas parade.”

How Grandpa became a Christian Christian Testimonies of Some Family Members

his CB handset mashing that button and saying, “Breaker one nine . . . this is The Gospel Fisherman . . . over.” He loved to tell people about Jesus! But Grandpa had not always had his hands on a CB handle telling people the gospel. For many years, he often had his hands on a beer can, or a wine bottle or on moonshine liquor. He had his hands on money, not his own. He had his hands in a shady business deal. But his heart was full of misery. The happiness of the moment did not replace the emptiness in his life. Then, he had a life-changing experience! He and his friend, Johnny Faulk, went fishing in Riceboro, Georgia. As they traveled in the Model-A, Johnny began to tell Grandpa about God’s love. Johnny himself had recently had a life-changing experience! He eagerly began to share. But Grandpa didn’t want to

Grandpa loved to fish. He carried a bundle of rod-n-reels in the trunk of his car. The plastic worms were ready to go! He also had a Bible on his front seat. Grandpa was DR. STEVE TAYLOR Pastor a preacher Bethlehem Baptist too! Most Church people called him “Brother Battey.” I just called him “Grandpa.” A lot of truckers and CB handlers knew him as “The Gospel Fisherman.” I can still see him picking up

listen. He told him to stop talking a b o u t Jesus. Johnny did stop by saying, “Battey, just remember, God loves you.” GRANDPA B u t God did not stop speaking! Thousands of times over the following weeks these words echoed in grandpa’s heart: “Battey, God loves you . . . Battey, God loves you . . . Battey, God loves you.” Something had to change! The guilt of his sin weighed heavily upon him. The words of God’s love rang

constantly within him. He could not keep on going!!! Have you ever felt that way? On June 7, 1951 he knelt on the sidewalk at the corner of Drayton and 31st in Savannah, Georgia. He cried out to God for help. Pastor John Kleinpeter heard a man weeping. He raised the window of the church building. “Can I help you?” he inquired. Pastor John invited Grandpa inside. He shared how God demonstrated His love. God sent His Son to die for us. He shared how Christ shed his blood on the Cross to take away our sin (John 1:29). In a few moments Pastor John invited Grandpa to give his life over to the Savior. Grandpa prayed, “Lord, I have messed my life up. If you will take it, it’s Yours!” In that moment of surrender, Grandpa gave himself to Christ. Christ gave Himself to Grandpa!

Battey Bragg was gloriously saved and changed! Gone was the guilt of sin. Gone was the drinking and gambling. Gone was the emptiness. Grandpa was made new. He had a Savior! He had new desires. He had a new purpose. Meaning in life replaced the misery in his life! Over the next 35 years, he preached the gospel: the “unsearchable riches of Christ.” He became a fisher of men! He loved to share Christ’s promise with others—“The one who comes to me I will certainly not cast out” (John 6:37b). Have you come to Christ? Have you had your sins forgiven? Follow the example of my Grandpa. Come to Christ now in prayer. He will not cast you out!

Trooper Smart honored at SHP awards ceremony The State Highway Patrol recognized the extraordinary acts of heroism and public service by several members during an awards ceremony held at the SBI Auditorium in Raleigh on November 18. Trooper Dakotah S. Smart, of Troop H4 in Cleveland County, was honored with the Highway Patrol Samaritan Award, an award bestowed to a member of the Patrol who went beyond the call of duty to aid or assist a fellow citizen. On Thursday, February 18, during inclement weather consisting of freezing rain and sleet, Trooper Smart was on routine patrol and was traveling on I-85 northbound, near the South Carolina state line, when he observed a white GMC Yukon on the right shoulder next to a guardrail. Trooper Smart noticed the gas door on the vehicle was open and thought someone might need assistance. As he came to a stop behind the Yukon, Trooper Smart ran the NC registration plate and was notified of an alert regarding a Missing Person out of Charlotte, NC. Trooper Smart approached the vehicle and observed a male, asleep in the driver's seat. Trooper Smart observed him visibly shaking and then moved around to the passenger side in the attempt to have the driver roll down his

window. The occupant was unable to roll the window down due to the car battery being dead. Trooper Smart noticed he was having a very difficult time trying to communicate with him. Trooper Smart reproached the driver's side of the vehicle and opened the door. Based on his training as an EMT, Trooper Smart knew the driver to be in distress and suffering from hypothermia, due to his extreme shaking and inability to communicate. Trooper Smart immediately notified Troop H Communications to dispatch EMS to his location. Trooper Smart removed the occupant, who is partially disabled, from the vehicle and assisted him to his patrol car. Trooper Smart placed him in the front passenger seat of his patrol car, placed an emergency blanket around him and placed the heat on high. The occupant then began experiencing respiratory distress and Trooper Smart asked for EMS to respond emergency traffic. While waiting for the arrival of EMS, Trooper Smart held him up and kept his airway clear and continued to evaluate his condition. EMS arrived on the scene and requested Trooper Smart to take the individual to Exit 106 for loading/transportation due to unsafe conditions at the scene. Trooper

Smart immediately took him to the exit and EMS took over the triage/treatment. The involved individual was treated for hypoxia and hypothermia and was transported to Caromont Regional in Gastonia for further evaluation. Trooper Smart went to Caromont Regional to check on him and was advised that he was expected to make a full recovery. On this date, Trooper Smart’s training and experience helped the individual overcome a dire situation and to reconnect with his loving family. Attendance at the ceremony was limited to the honorees and their invited guests with strict COVID-19 safety protocols in place. Opening remarks were provided by Major W. P. Moore II and an invocation was administered by SHP Chaplain B.C. Murray. Colonel Freddy L. Johnson Jr., commander of the State Highway Patrol, emphasized the exceptional efforts made by the honorees during his remarks. “The recipients being recognized today have exhibited extraordinary dedication to service far beyond what is required of their normal duties,” said Johnson. “These sworn and civilian members have made it their personal mission to safeguard the lives and wellbeing of those they serve.”

NC ALE awarded agency of the year The Department of Public Safety, North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement Division was awarded the Agency of the Year by the National Liquor Law Enforcement Association at their Annual Conference in Montgomery, Alabama on November 15. Over 30 local, state, federal and campus law enforcement agencies were represented at the Conference. NC ALE was one of a few agencies who were recognized for the hard work and dedication to the field of alcohol law enforcement. The NLLEA Alcohol Law Enforcement Agency of the Year Award is given to an agency that has demonstrated agency effectiveness through

the implementation of innovative programs, community and media recognition, and model training programs, practices, and strategies. ALE demonstrated this through the implementation of proactive enforcement targeting illegal alcohol outlets, preforming licensee inspections, maintaining training for licensees through web-based platforms, sharing training with colleagues on alcohol home delivery compliance, securing partnerships for the investigation of fraudulent identifications, and the use of two specialized units to target nuisance locations and illegal gambling. “Our personnel rose to meet the challenges of the

past year by innovating and holding themselves to the highest of standards for our profession. I have personally witnessed and heard countless stories of our employees going above and beyond their duties in service of others,” said Bryan House, Director of Alcohol Law Enforcement. “I am extremely proud of their accomplishments as well as having our State recognized for this important award.” ALE’s 108 specially trained agents have the authority to arrest and take investigatory action throughout North Carolina. Their primary responsibility is the enforcement of Alcoholic Beverage Control, tobacco, state lottery and gambling laws.

Raising awareness of the benefits of Hospice and Palliative Care Throughout the month of November, Hospice Cleveland County will be joining organizations across the nation in recognition of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. For more than 40 years, Hospice has helped provide comfort and dignity to millions of people, allowing them to spend their final months wherever they call home, surrounded by their loved ones. Hospices ensure that pain management, therapies, and treatments all support a plan of care that is centered on the person's goals. Hospice care also provides emotional support and advice to help family members become confident caregivers and adjust to the future with grief support for up to a year. "It is essential that people understand that hospice and palliative care is not giving up, it is not the abandonment of care, and it is not reserved for the imminently dying," said Edo Banach, president and CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. 'Hospice is a successful model of person-centered care that brings hope, dignity, and compassion when they are most needed." In 2018, 1.61 million Medicare beneficiaries received care from hospices in this country, reports NHPCO. Hospice is unique in that it offers an interdisciplinary team approach to treatment. Caring for the whole person allows the team to address each patient's unique needs and challenges. As Debbie Costner, Hospice Cleveland County volunteer noted, "Volunteering for hos-

pice fills my heart and soul with purpose. A person deserves the dignity of a comfortable and peaceful transition. The experiences I have had with hospice helped me through the passing of my father who was served by an amazing hospice team! I can think of no more valuable way to donate my time" Hospices are also some of the best providers of community-based palliative care. Palliative care delivers expertise to improve quality of life

and relief from pain, it can be provided at any time during an illness - during and after treatment, from diagnosis on. More information about hospice, palliative care, and advance care planning is available at www.HospiceCares.cc or by calling 704-487-4677 and from NHPCO's Caringlnfo.org.

The eight seniors pictured above completed their days as Kings Mountain High School football players by going three rounds in the NCHSAA 3A playoffs. They led the Mountaineers to second place in the Big South 3A Conference and an 11-3 overall record. As juniors in the spring, they helped the Mountaineers to an 8-1 record and the BSC championship.

Four TD second half lifts Dudley over KM

Dudley scored on four of its first five second half possessions to break open a 7-7 game and defeat Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers 36-10 in the third round of the NCHSAA 3A football playoffs Friday night in Greensboro. The win moves the Panthers (11-1) into a fourth round match against the undefeated 13-0 Statesville Greyhounds who advanced with a 42-0 victory over Hibriten. The young Mountaineers held the senior-laden Pan-

thers to a 7-7 halftime tie but the hosts took command on their first two drives of the second half to build a 28-7 lead, and went up by 36-7 before KM finally got a field goal from Jaden Ellis on its final possession late in the fourth quarter. Like all devoted KM fans, Mountaineer Coach Greg Lloyd wasn’t happy with the season coming to an end but he is already looking forward to next year. Of course, the Mountaineers will miss their eight seniors but a ton of sopho-

mores and juniors gained valuable experience. “Against Dudley, it was probably a little more lopsided than it should have been but they were a very explosive team,” Lloyd said. “They have a great shot at winning the state championship. They have great size and speed. They had 16 seniors out there (on the field) and we had only eight on our entire team this year.” RJ Baker scored two touchdowns and KJ Morehead, Michael Shaw and

Mehki Wall one apiece for the Panthers. Adoul Bayor and Nasir Newkirk each had a two-point conversion. Shaw finished with 119 yards rushing on 12 carries and Baker had 116 on 12 totes. With the game still scoreless early, the Mountaineers had their first scoring opportunity but a 45-yard field goal attempt fell short at the 6:27 mark of the first period. The high-powered Dudley offense then kicked in, See FOUR, Page 2B

Anytime a high school football team has double-digit wins, it is a major accomplishment. Even more so, when the majority of those players were sophomores and juniors. So, with only eight seniors completing their high school career, Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers should be highly excited about the outlook for the next two years. Kings Mountain went into this fall season as the defending champions of the Big South Conference which just happens to be one of the best leagues in the state. Five of its eight teams qualified for this year’s state playoffs and four of them were still playing last week. KM fell to a very good Greensboro Dudley eleven and Forestview lost to conference foe South Point. The Raiders and Crest will continue carrying the BSC banner in this week’s fourth round. True KM fans are proud of the Mountaineers’ accomplishments this fall because they built that 10-3 overall record after losing a ton of returning starters to injuries. And, they probably hope the ’22 season will get here soon because all their sophomores and juniors will be a year older and a year better, and hopefully surpass this year’s achievements. “Things look good,” says Mountaineer Coach Greg Lloyd, whose team has averaged double-digit wins over the last eight years. “We’ve got a lot of people coming back and they know the expectations for next year. This will be the first off-sea-

son these younger kids have been through since they’ve been on varsity. Hopefully, all of them will be excited about the ’22 season.” The Mountaineers will miss the great play and leadership of their eight seniors D’Andre Hoyle, Sel Randolph, Seth Neal, Jonah Patrick, Peyton Fisher, Bruce Brown, Jason Feemster, and Tykel Smith. Their ninth returning senior, running back Rashaard Brooks, did not get to play because of a serious injury he suffered last season but he was released by his doctors just a few days ago and is working out with hopes of playing college football. Most of the underclassmen started at one time or another this season, including sophomores Zay Smith, Robert Kendrick, CJ Houser, Bryson Brown, Mark Thomasson, Quay Sanders, Andre Willis, Carter Simpson, Thomas Feemster, Ethan Guy, Sincere Lanier, Micah Ward, Javier Currie, Rodney Unnasch, Zaylen Ramos, Chris Benton, Canyon Evans, Nic Cole, Triston Spikes, Alex Jackson, Makhi Borders and Matthew Rickard; And, juniors Caleb Holland, Lamont Littlejohn Jr., AJ Richardson, Jaden Ellis, Malichi Reeves, Dariyon Black, Michael Lubas, and Isaiah Eskridge; And, freshmen Ky’Lei Anderson, Kameron Adams, Zavion Wilson, Gabe Short, Max Thompson, Thomas Fair, Eli Lipscomb, Jack Kiser and Jamel Lee.

Kings Mountain fumbled the ensuing kickoff, but a big eight-yard sack by Seth Neal put Dudley in the hole and they punted the ball away. Neal had several tackles and sacks but had to leave the game late in the first half with an injury. After an exchange of punts, the Mountaineer offense took over at their own 41. Robert Kendrick and Micah Ward took turns running the ball, and Ward capped the 11-play drive with a one-yard plunge up the middle with 3:09 on the first half clock. Ellis’s conversion knotted the score. But, the Panthers would score on all but one of their second half possessions to turn the game into a rout. It

On the third play of the final period, KM had to punt from its own 33 and the Panthers’ Brown circled left end for a 50yard touchdown with 10:48 left to play. “They were a very explosive team,” Lloyd said. “Their size and speed wore us down in the second half. They were more up tempo in the second half. But I was pleased with how hard we played. We had a lot of people banged up. This was just one of those years. But we had a lot of younger guys that got a lot of experience so that bodes well for the future. The seniors did a good job leading them.” Jonah Patrick, one of eight KM seniors playing his final game, came on to quarterback and led a late drive that went from the KM 39 to the Panther five, where it was fourth and goal. With exactly three minutes left, Ellis came on to kick a field goal to account for the final points.

Governor Cooper signs state budget On November 19, Governor Cooper signed the new twoyear state budget into Gov.Cooper law. Two days before, the Senate voted 41-7 in favor of the bill sent the bill to the House, which voted

104-10 in favor. Of the budget, Gov. Cooper said, "This budget moves North Carolina forward in important ways. Funding for high-speed internet, our universities and community colleges, clean air and drinking water and desperately needed pay increases for teachers and state employees are all critical for our state to emerge from this pandemic

stronger than ever. I will continue to fight for progress where this budget falls short but believe that, on balance, it is an important step in the right direction." Earlier in the week, Gov. Cooper shared his frustration saying, “North Carolina has been without a comprehensive budget for almost three years. While I have a veto that I know would be sustained in the Senate, this is a time when the state must move ahead. “Too many important investments in this budget are overdue, particularly with the likelihood that the Republican leadership would respond to a veto by walking away from many of the good things that are in it. Right now, we can’t afford that,” he said. House Speaker Tim Moore said, “This budget represents months of hard work and good-faith negotiations between Republicans and Democrats, House and Senate, and our Governor. Although we have many differences, we each had the common goal of coming together to create a spending plan for the state, one of the General Assembly’s most important

constitutional obligations. In the end, I am confident that we have come together to design a budget that truly meets the most critical needs of all North Carolinians.” Senate Bill 105 addresses four critical areas: education, healthcare, infrastructure, and savings. Education: Historic education investments include increases in early childhood services, teacher pay and professional development, community college staff and programs, digital learning at all levels, STEM programs, record investments in Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and more. Teachers will receive an average 6.7% over the biennium and up to $2,800 in bonuses. Non-certified school and community college personnel pay will increase to at least $15/hr. The NC Promise Program will be expanded to Fayetteville State University. Healthcare: This budget addresses the top healthcare crisis in our State by increasing pay for the thousands of direct support personnel who provide daily care for our

elderly and most medically fragile and disabled persons and their families. An additional 1,000 Innovations Waiver slots are created to serve the intellectually and developmentally disabled. Postpartum Medicaid services for new moms will be extended to a full year, providing the support mothers and babies need to begin a healthy life. The General Assembly will also establish a joint committee to recommend legislation to study methods to address healthcare access and consider Medicaid expansion. Infrastructure: An $8 billion infrastructure plan that addresses critical needs across North Carolina, including over $800 million for school construction supported by the lottery; a new Brody School of Medicine at ECU, critical projects at every University across the state; funds for community colleges, expanding broadband service, local water and sewer projects, airports, roads and rail; parks, trails, and clean water conservation. Savings and Tax Cuts: The State of North Carolina will build its reserves

even further by increasing the Rainy-Day Savings Reserve Fund to $4.25 billion and appropriating $800 million for disaster relief projects and reserves, including Hurricane Fred relief funds. According to Tim Moore, “Overall, the progrowth tax policy in this budget puts North Carolina on the path of lowering the personal income tax to 3.99% and eliminating the corporate income tax rate. And, in recognition of their service to the safety and security of our State and Nation, the military pensions for our Veterans will now be tax-free.” PPP loans will be tax-deductible, a key to help to the small businesses of this state who relied on these loans to survive the economic shutdowns of 2020. The Historic Preservation Tax Credit will be extended to 2031, a key priority for rural and smalltown North Carolina’s economic development. State employees will also receive a 5% raise, plus bonuses, for the biennium and retired state employees and teachers will receive 5% in bonuses over two years.

missions to date, an increase from the previous year (2020) of 733%. Total losses reported in this scam are more than $13,000. L.M. of New Berlin reported to BBB Scam Tracker, “I was sent a message saying I was to receive $50,000 from Manuel Franco. I was tricked into giving my driver’s license number and SSN. I fell for this, and I am really worried about what they might do.” Juliana O’Rork of Charlotte reported, “I received a text saying ‘I’m Mr. Manuel Franco, the Powerball winner in the Powerball Millions Jackpot. Click here to see my winning interview. I’m donating $50,000 to 200 random individuals. If you get this message, then your number was selected after a spin ball’…To verify your winners send a text to this number.”

A consumer from Colorado informed BBB that he lost $3,200 when he sent $200 to “activate his winnings”, and $3,000 for the I.R.S” as instructed to collect his winnings. He said he believed it, “Because of COVID I was desperate for money.” BBB reminds people to protect themselves from impostor scams: • Be suspicious of irregular communications, especially via text, email, or phone. • Don’t provide money or information to people that you don’t know or that promise you money in exchange. You will never have to pay upfront fees to claim a prize. • If you are asked to prove your identity, it’s a scam. • Always report scams to law enforcement or BBB Scam Tracker.

MountainTrue to host 5Point Adventure Film Festival MountainTrue is excited to announce a special virtual screening of the 5Point Adventure Film Festival on November 30 as part of this year’s GivingTuesday – a global day of giving and unity. All donations will support MountainTrue’s conservation work in the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains. “These are hard times, and we could all use a little inspiration,” says Susan Bean, Community Engagement Director of MountainTrue. “The 5Point Film Festival will inspire you with compelling stories of personal triumph, dramatic landscapes of natural beauty and powerful stories of people connecting across cultural dividing lines. You will

glide down powdery slopes, swim through powerful currents and roll through oldgrowth forests – all from the safety of your living room.” 5Point Film Festival was founded in 2007 by adventurer Julie Kennedy and

was built with five guiding principles (or “points”) in mind: respect, commitment, humility, purpose, and balance. The festival inspires us to explore wild places and return with a renewed vigor to protect our natural world.

MountainTrue’s screening will include select films from 5Point Film Festival’s ‘best of’ collection. These fan favorite short films boast captivating imagery and inspirational stories both heartwarming and striking. With a total run time of 90 minutes, tuning into 5Point Film Festival is the perfect way to make an impact on Giving Tuesday from the comfort of home. In Life of Pie, two hilarious and quirky owners of The Hot Tomato, a pizza joint in Fruita, CO, talk about making mountain biking more accessible in Fruita. River Looters sees a group of river surfers in Bend, Oregon begin looking for lost jewelry and other

items at the bottom of the Deschutes river. Osama & Ayman tells the story of two brothers who are Muslim skateboarders as they take their sport to the streets and break down stereotypes in Washington, D.C. MountainTrue has chosen to make the film screening free of charge so that it is accessible to everyone. However, MountainTrue is paying for the films, and we encourage everyone who can contribute to do so as part of GivingTuesday. We will also hold a raffle for the chance to win prizes from Yeti, Gregory, Stio, NRS and other 5Point sponsors. All donations and raffle ticket sales will support MountainTrue’s ongoing work to protect our

region’s rivers, forests, and mountains. To get your ticket and enter to win our raffle, visit https://mountaintrue. org/5pointfilm/. MountainTrue is a nonprofit organization working in 29 mountain counties to champion resilient forests, clean waters, and healthy communities in the Southern Blue Ridge. We engage in on-the-ground environmental restoration projects and policy advocacy at all levels of government. Primary program areas include public lands, water quality, clean energy, land use/transportation and community engagement.

Does Medicare Cover Mobility Scooters or Wheelchairs? Dear Savvy Senior, I have arthritis in my hips and knees and have a difficult time getting around anymore. What do I need to do to get a Medicare-covered electric-powered scooter or wheelchair? Need a Ride

Dear Need, If you’re enrolled in original Medicare, getting an electric-powered mobility scooter or wheelchair that’s covered by Medicare starts with a visit to your doctor’s office. If eligible, Medicare will pay 80 percent of the cost, after you’ve met your Part B deductible ($203 in 2021). You will be responsible for the remaining 20 percent unless you have supplemental insurance. Here’s a breakdown of how it works. Schedule an Appointment Your first step is to call your doctor or primary care provider and schedule a Medicare required, face-to-face mobility evaluation to determine your need for a power scooter or wheelchair. For you to be eligible, you’ll need to meet all of the following conditions:

• Your health condition makes moving around your home very difficult, even with the help of a cane, crutch, walker or manual wheelchair. • You have significant problems performing activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, getting in or out of a bed or chair, or using the bathroom. • You are able to safely operate, and get on and off the scooter or wheelchair, or have someone with you who is always available to help you safely use the device. If eligible, your doctor will determine what kind of mobility equipment you’ll need based on your condition, usability in your home, and ability to operate it.

a power scooter or wheelchair, he or she will fill out a written order or prescription. Once you receive it, you’ll need to take it to a Medicare approved supplier within 45 days. To find Medicare approved suppliers in your area, visit Medicare.gov/medical-equipment-suppliers or call 800633-4227.

There are, however, circumstances where you may need “prior authorization” for certain types of power wheelchairs. In this case, you’ll need permission from Medicare before you can get one.

It’s also important to know that Medicare coverage is dependent on your needing a scooter or wheelchair in your home. If your claim is based on needing it outside your home, it will be denied as not medically necessary, because the wheelchair or scooter will be considered a leisure item.

Financial Aid If you have a Medicare supplemental (Medigap) policy, it may pick up some, or all of the 20 percent cost of the scooter or wheelchair that’s not covered by Medicare. If, however, you don’t have supplemental insurance, and can’t afford the 20 percent, you may be able to get help through Medicare Savings Programs. Call your local Medicaid office for eligibility information.

Where to Buy If your doctor determines you need

Or, if you find that you’re not eligible for a Medicare covered scooter or

wheelchair, and you can’t afford to purchase one, renting can be a much cheaper short-term solution. Talk to a supplier about this option.

For more information about power mobility devices call Medicare at 800-633-4227 or visit Medicare.gov/ coverage/wheelchairs-scooters. Medicare Advantage If you happen to have a Medicare Advantage plan (like an HMO or PPO), you’ll need to call your plan to find out the specific steps you need to take to get a power-wheelchair or scooter. Many Advantage plans have specific suppliers within the plan’s network they’ll require you to use. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

COVID-19 booster shots now available for all vaccinated adults are fully vaccinated, people may be more likely to develop milder or asymptomatic COVID-19 over time. Individuals can receive any brand of the COVID-19 vaccine for their booster shot. Some people may prefer the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. Limited preliminary evidence suggests that booster doses of one of the two mRNA vaccines — Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech — more effectively raise antibody levels than a booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. "If you are 50 or older, I urge you to get your booster as soon as you reach your sixmonth mark so that you are well protected, particularly as we head into winter and the holidays," said Secretary Cohen. Everyone who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of age, should get a booster two months after their shot. NCDHHS encourages individuals to speak with a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist if they have questions about what booster is right for them. Booster shots are available anywhere COVID-19 vaccines are available, and people do not need a doctor's note to get a booster shot. Individuals who want to receive a booster will need to know the dates and brand of their past COVID-19 vaccine.

Paper vaccination cards are helpful but may not be necessary. Anyone who received their COVID-19 vaccine at a doctor’s office, independent (non-chain) pharmacy, health department or at a community event can access their vac-

cine information on the NCDHHS Access Portal. At-home vaccination and free transportation may be available. In addition to boosters for adults, the CDC recently recommended children ages 5 to 11 receive a safe and ef-

fective COVID-19 vaccine to protect them from serious illness and complications from COVID-19. "Parents should get their children vaccinated as a safe, tested way to keep them healthy and to get them back

to safely being with their family and friends," said Secretary Cohen. More information about vaccines for kids can be found on NCDHHS’s website.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends anyone 18 years or older who received the Pfizer or Moderna COVID19 vaccine get a booster six months after their second dose to help strengthen and extend protections against COVID-19. This comes after the Food and Drug Administration authorized the boosters for such use Friday. The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 booster was made available in late October and is recommended for individuals ages 18 and older who were vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago. "I encourage all adults to get their COVID-19 booster for safer holiday gatherings with loved ones," said NCDHHS Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. "With the recent authorization of a COVID-19 vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11, now nearly everyone in the family can be vaccinated or boosted. Don’t wait to vaccinate." Additionally, fully vaccinated people who received their first COVID-19 vaccines outside of the U.S. or in clinical trials with a brand not currently authorized can now receive a Pfizer booster shot when they are eligible. Those over 50 or at high risk should get a booster now. Recent studies indicate that while protection against severe disease and death remains strong for individuals who
