Gas leak in downtown KM on Saturday By Loretta Cozart On Saturday, Nov. 30 at 11 am, Kings Mountain Police notified Kings Mountain Fire Department of a gas leak behind 133 West Mountain Street near the Cherokee Street parking lot. A Bobcat operator using a backhoe attachment broke a gas line, and the smell of natural gas inundated the downtown business district. Per Federal Required Standards, the KM’s Natural Gas Division is required to respond to natural gas emergencies. These emergencies can range from smell of gas, gas fires, gas explosions and damaged infrastructure or equipment. Calls can come to them via office calls or through 911. KMFD responded to the scene and immediately

Firefighters stand watch as the Natural Gas Dept. handles the situation. Photos by Loretta Cozart evacuated nearby businesses. Shopkeepers and customers spilled out of Revolution 1 coffee shop, Suze B's Gift Shop, and Ditto Consignment onto Battleground Avenue. While shops further away

continued business as usual, many shopkeepers nearer the scene waited over an hour to get back to work. Within 20 minutes, the gas had been shut-off to the area. Daryl Philbeck, City See GAS LEAK, Page 2A

GAS LEAK From Page 1A of Kings Mountain's Superintendent of Natural Gas Operations, assessed the situation when the Herald arrived at the scene. "We got a call from the police department that there was a cut gas line," he said. "I've got crews coming in, and we're going to make the repairs. We are just checking the buildings to be on the safe side and make sure there is no natural gas inside." Nick Henricks, Assistant City Manager, commended employees involved saying, “Job well done by all City First responders and Utility Technicians! My guys are very well trained and equipped to respond and handle these calls in an expedited

fashion. “Our working relationships with our customers, KMPD and the KMFD is why our track record has been excellent. The City staff and management places high standards of public safety. All year long we work very hard to educate the public on safety measures regarding ALL City Utilities,” he said. Firefighters worked their way down Battleground Avenue, checking open businesses to

But the situation was handled quickly by KMPD, KMFD, and the Natural Gas Department, and shops were back in business by early afternoon. All around downtown, shops are decorated for the Christmas holiday with window displays, flags,

and signs. Wreaths with red bows could be seen from Patrick Senior Center to churches and individual homes, as Kings Mountain prepares for the upcoming holiday festivities. Visitors streamed into the Kings Mountain Historical Museum, as a record number of patrons admired the trains and decorations. By 1 pm, no parking spaces were available on Railroad Avenue as shoppers visited local businesses

Expectancy is the atmosphere for miracles. –Edwin Louis Cole

Pieces of Kings Mountain History To many, the event kicking off the holiday season has historically been the LORETTA annual Kings COZART Mountain Christmas Parade. Searching the Herald archives, the first mention of a community Christmas Parade was in November of 1947. There are gaps in the digital archives, so earlier parades may have occurred that aren’t recorded. The 1947 article mentions multi-colored lights spanning Battleground Avenue in the downtown business district that year. Always a highlight of the Christmas Parade was the Kings Mountain High School Marching Mountaineer Band, led by the Band Major and Majorette’s, wearing their iconic white boots with tassels. On the Facebook page “If You Lived in Kings Mountain from 1965 and 1985”, memories of local history are shared, usually causing a flood of respons-

es. Sonya McAbee Gregory recently replied to a post about shopping in

Kings Mountain during the holidays, writing, “Calling All Kings Mountain High School Majorettes! Thinking about shopping downtown Kings Mountain brought back fond memories of all the parades where the Kings Mountain High School Band would come marching proudly by. “I always loved the Majorettes, with their white tasseled leather boots, and batons! So, what did I do? I got me a real official baton and twirled it all day long! I always thought our Kings

Before the bypass, many Kings Mountain residents traveled by Mauney Memorial Library’s iconic Christmas Tree on their way during the holiday season. This photo, taken by Joseph Brymer in 2004, warms the hearts of many KM residents and reminds them of the beautiful tree that once signaled the beginning of the Christmas season with its twinkling lights.

Penley’s Chapel Loneliness is difThis is a Church time of speficult at any time, but the holidays seem cial moments with family and friends. to heighten one’s sense of Parties and dinners filled being alone. I’ve talked to with laughter and good people who feel that they times. Shared traditions don’t even have one true bring us together with friend. They have acquainthose we love. Sadly, not tances and they put on a

face of being alright, but inside they are hurting and longing for the closeness of an intimate friendship. There are a variety of reasons for loneliness. People have been hurt or betrayed by someone they trusted. Now they are afraid to venture into new friendships, lest they be wounded again. Some are lonely because they are separated from family because of a job or service in the military. Many simply find it difficult to make friends, which increases their social anxiety and causes them to feel like a social outcast.

Whatever the causes may be, loneliness is a difficult burden to bear, especially this time of year. If you are lonely, I would like to introduce you to my very best friend. He has promised to be a “friend that is closer than a brother.” He is a friend who will always be there for you. You can call on Him in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep because of worry or fear, and He will comfort you. You can talk with Him about anything, and He is never too busy to spend time with you. When you

feel all alone, He’ll be the one friend who “will never leave you, nor forsake you.” He knows what it’s like to be lonely. In the darkest time of His life, all of His friends ran away from Him. He was called “a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.” As a matter of fact, He suffered all of those things and more, because He loves you so much! His name is Jesus and you can trust Him to be the greatest friend you will ever know!

Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman warns consumers, “The holiday season is right around the corner and shoppers are crowding our local stores to find the best deals.” But what shoppers are neglecting is their safety. According to Sheriff Norman “This time of year attracts more shopping-related criminal activity because of the larger crowds and the extended store hours. These factors, and the usual distraction of shopping, creates a more favorable environment for petty thieves and other offenders. The Sheriff reminds all Cleveland County residents to follow these safety tips: Shopping Safety: • A single shopper is the best target for theft. Always shop with a friend or relative. • When going shopping, tell someone where you are going and what time to expect you to return. Also, make sure they know what you are wearing, as well as the type of vehicle you are driving. • Shop during daylight hours. If you shop at night, park your vehicle in a welllit area. • Dress casually and comfortably and avoid wearing expensive jewelry. If carrying cash, keep it in your front pocket rather than in a purse or wallet. This makes it much more difficult for a pickpocket to remove. Also store car keys in a pants or jacket pocket. If your purse is stolen, you will still be able to drive home. • Pay careful attention to your surroundings and avoid overloading yourself with packages. It is important to have clear visibility and freedom of motion to avoid mishaps. • When returning to your vehicle, check around it and in the back seat. Be aware of strangers approaching you for any reason. Have you car keys in your hand to avoid spending unnecessary time unprotected from the security of your vehicle. • If you feel uneasy returning to your vehicle alone, find a security guard and ask them to walk you to your car. According to Sheriff Norman “During this time of year, busy holiday shoppers become careless and vulnerable to other crimes as well. Credit card fraud and gift card fraud are on the rise. However, taking a few preventive measures can help.” Credit Card Fraud: • Keep a close watch on your credit card every time you use it, and make sure you get it back as quickly as possible. • Never write your PIN number on your credit card. • Never leave your credit cards or receipts lying around. • Shield your credit card number so that others around you can’t copy it or capture it on a mobile telephone or other camera. • Only carry credit cards that you absolutely need.

The Winter Wonderland Festival includes inflatable attractions and games, food trucks, and performances. Santa Claus will make a grand arrival in Patriots Park after the parade and children can visit candy stations, watch live dance performances, see dinosaurs with Dakota and Friends,

• Shred anything with your credit card number written on it. • If you’re planning to purchase online, make sure the web page where you enter your credit card information is secure through SSL (Secure Socket Layer). You can tell if the web page is secure by looking for the gold lock or key icon at the bottom corner of your browser window. • If you’re not comfortable submitting your information through the internet, call the seller and give them your information over the telephone. Never send your credit card information via email. • Check the company out. Only do business with companies that provide a physical address and telephone number. • Keep good records. Always print out a copy of any online products or services you purchase. Gift Card Fraud: • Never buy gift cards from online auction sites. This is a large source of gift card fraud. Many of the gift cards are stolen, counterfeit or used. • Only buy gift cards directly from the store issuing the gift card or from a secure retailer’s website. • Don’t buy gift cards off publicly displayed racks in retail stores. Only purchase gift cards at the sales terminal from the cashier. • Always carefully examine both the front and back of a gift card before you buy it. If you see a PIN number, ask for a different card. If the card looks like it has been tampered with in any way, put it back. • Always ask the store cashier to scan the gift card in front of you. This will guarantee that your card is valid when you buy it and that it reflects the balance you just charged it with. • Always keep your receipt as a proof of purchase if there is money stored on the gift card. • If possible, register your gift card at the store’s website • Never give your Social Security number, date of birth or any other unneeded private information when purchasing a gift card. No reputable company will ask for this information. Considering these problems, Sheriff Norman warns shoppers to be careful so that they don’t become the victim of criminal activity. “Unfortunately, when shopping, people have a tendency to let their guard down,” said Sheriff Norman. “However, paying attention and taking precautions can help eliminate their chances of being victimized.”

KM at Catholic for Western 3A championship It will be Kings Mountain at Charlotte Catholic for the second year in a row in Friday’s NCHSAA Western 3A championship game in the Queen City. And, just like last year the Mountaineers will have their hands full as the Cougars are loaded again with many of the same players that helped them win the state championship last December. Catholic comes into the game with a 10-3 overall record, but those losses came to three very good football teams. Two of them were to nationally-ranked Catholic

schools Our Lady of Good Counsel from Maryland and Archbishop Rummell of Missouri. Their other loss was to their Southern Carolina 3A rival Weddington, which may be the best team in North Carolina regardless of classification. The Cougars rely heavily on a strong running game, but are capable of passing if they have to. One of the players from last year that punished the KM defense, Paul Neel, leads the team offensively with 1,580 yards rushing and 17 touchdowns. “They’re very similar to last year,” noted Kings

Mountain coach Greg Lloyd. “They do everything well. They’re so disciplined. They play at a high level and they play hard. “They have a great running game,” he added, “but they run some action passes, too. We will have to do a better job defensively than we did last year and we’ll have to move the ball on offense.” One of the Mountaineers that will want to do exceptionally well on defense is junior corner Chazz Armstrong, who played at Catholic as a freshman two years See CHAMPIONSHIP, Page 2B

Second half comeback grounds Rockets 17-10 Kings Mountain came from eight points down in the second half to defeat AC Reynolds 17-10 in the third round of the NCHSAA 3A football playoffs Friday night in Asheville. Each team gave the other its toughest test to date, but in the end it was a great performance by the Mountaineers on offense, defense and special teams that made the difference. The offense, despite having two turnovers, put up a balanced rushing and passing attack while the kicking teams and defense held one of the state’s top offensive units on its end of the field most of the night. To the Rockets’ credit, they also turned the Mountaineers back a couple of times to hold the KM team to its second lowest point production of the year. Previously, KM’s low came in a 21-16 Big South Conference loss to Hunter Huss. “I thought it was a fantastic team effort by two good teams,” KM coach Greg Lloyd said. “It was a very even match-up.” Led by great blocking, the KM two-man running attack of Rashaard Brooks and Ricaylen Mack gave the Mountaineers the edge in time of possession; the defense led by the likes of DayDay Wilson, Javari Rice-Wilson, Zach Crawford, Chazz Armstrong, Chris Ruffalo and others bottled up ACR’s talented quarterback Eli Carr and Division I wide receiver recruit Jhari Patterson most of the night, holding them to under 100 yards in both rushing and passing. The Rockets went into the game with well over 3,000 yards passing but managed only 50 against the Mountaineers. Their running attack

in the second half we were solid. Holding them to 10 points was a great effort. They were averaging 45 points a game.” Reynolds received the second half kickoff but was forced to punt after a Chase Cannon sack. KM took possession at its own 17 with 8:04 left on the third period clock and mounted a five-minute plus, 12-play drive that tied the score. Along the way, the Rockets got a good taste of KM’s 1-2 running punch of Ricaylen Mack and Rashaard Brooks as well as the receiving talents of Quintin Davidson and Kobe Paysour. Davidson had a first down catch of 18 yards at the 40, Mack ripped off a 13-yard gain for a first down at the ACR 40, Brooks carried twice for 11 yards and a first down at the 29, and Paysour caught a 17-yard pass on third and eight to the ACR 10, from which point Brooks went off right tackle to cut the score to 10-8. Quarterback Ethan Reid hit Ussery for a two-point conversion to tie the score. A big defensive stand by the Mountaineers early in the fourth quarter set the stage for the winning touchdown. Brooks had thrown an interception on a potential tie-breaking KM drive late in the third period that gave ACR the ball on its own 29. The Rockets, who hadn’t been penalized but one time for five yards in the first half, began to see the flags flying against them and a crack back block put them back on their own nine yard line with a third and seven. Derek Wilson slammed Patterson to the ground for no gain to force a punt that put KM on offense at the ACR 48 yard line.

AC Reynolds’ Tacoma Jones (17) tries to bring down Kings Mountain receiver Quintin Davidson (3) on one of his five receptions in Friday’s game in Asheville. Photos by Gary Smart managed only 82. The Rockets’ defense was in top form, though, and held the Mountaineers to only a safety and a 2-0 lead in the opening minutes of the game. With big pass receptions of 17 yards by Orlando Odums and 36 by Quintin Davidson, the Mountaineers drove the opening kickoff from their own 26 to the Rockets’ four yard line where they faced fourth and two, but ACR batted away a

pass to take possession. But, with Reynolds facing third and five from their own nine Javari Rice-Wilson threw Don Mosely for a five-yard loss on a shovel pass, forcing a punt. James Ussery blazed off the left side of the KM defense and blocked it out of the end zone for a safety and a 2-0 Mountaineer lead. A change of possessions put the Rockets on their own two following a 48-yard punt by KM’s Tris-

ton Hannon, but Patterson broke a 14-yard run and also caught a 14-yard pass, and a 19-yard reception by Carter Lindsay followed by a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty against KM got the Rockets to the 16 where Kevin Hernandez booted a field goal to put them up 3-2. A pass interception and 47-yard return by Arin Wilson put the Rockets in business at the KM 23 with two minutes left in the half.

They were able to get to the one yard line where they faced fourth and goal. Patterson took the snap out of a wildcat formation, ran up to the line and stretched as if he might be considering a jump pass but then raced around right end for the touchdown and a 10-2 halftime lead. “We struggled a little bit in the first half,” Lloyd noted. “A lot of that was because of penalties and good play by AC Reynolds.

KMHS basketball hosts Burns Friday Kings Mountain High’s basketball teams will play their first home game Friday night against county rival Burns. Girls action begins at 6 p.m. The KM teams opened their season last night at home against RS Central. The girls opened their season last week at East Rutherford and lost 49-34.

A big 15-yard pass reception by Paysour on his knees set up a first and 10 at the ACR 33. Brooks followed that with a 10-yard run, and KM got an extra 10. He was tackled by the face mask and all of a sudden the Mountaineers were on the 17 with a first down. Brooks reeled off two runs for a first down at the five from which point Mack followed the “Big Nasty” blocking of DayDay Wilson and Javari Rice Wilson and the left side of the KM line into the end zone for the winning touchdown. Taking over with 7:26 on the clock, Reynolds picked up one first down before facing a fourth and eight at its own 45. A holding penalty forced them to punt the ball away with 4:33 remaining. KM picked up two first downs, but after a five-yard penalty was forced to punt the ball away with 10.1 seconds showing on the clock. Reynolds put all 11 of its players up front to try to block the punt but Hannon got off a high 41-yard kick that rolled dead at the ACR 25 as the final second ticked off the clock. “That was a big win for us,” Lloyd said. “I was proud of the effort of all of our players.”

Hospice Cleveland County helps patient check off bucket list Shelby, NC – Many people think that being on hospice means lying in a bed, barely conscious. Sandra “Sandy” Christ was a patient who proved that was not the case. Many of her final moments were anything but ordinary, and they would not have been possible without the help of Hospice Cleveland County. Sandy had a passion for quilting and one of her bucket list dreams was to meet Kaffe Fassett, a famous quilter, that she long admired before she died. As timing would have it, he was presenting on a 10-city tour of the United States and one of the stops just happened to be in Gastonia, NC. The event was hosted by “Sew Much Fun” at the Hilton Garden Inn. Sandy’s Hospice Team contacted the organizers and arranged for Sandy to attend for free. The team also made it possible for her husband Gunney to go as well. The sparkle in Sandy’s eyes when she got to meet Fassett said it all! Sandy’s experience is not unique. The mission of hospice is to provide specialized care for end-of-life patients and their families. More simply, hospice care supports living one’s life to the fullest with dignity regardless of how much time remains. Far too many people wait until they are in the midst of a health care crisis before thinking about what options are available or what care they or their loved ones would have wanted. Often, by waiting too long to learn about possible options, like hospice care, people end up spending difficult days in the hospital or the emergency room and opportunities to NORTH CAROLINA CLEVELAND COUNTY IN THE GENERAL COURT OF JUSTICE DISTRICT COURT DIVISION 19 CVD 1815 THE CHARLOTTEMECKLENBURG HOSPITAL AUTHORITY D/B/A ATRIUM HEALTH, Plaintiff, V.

be with loved ones at home are lost. When a family is coping with a serious illness and a cure is no longer possible, hospice provides the type of care most people say they want at the end of life: comfort and dignity. Considered to be the model for high-quality, compassionate care for people with a life-limiting illness, hospice care includes expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support. Care is provided by an inter-disciplinary team of professionals and trained volunteers. The wishes of the patient and family are always at the center of care. Most hospice care is provided in the home – where the majority of Americans have said they would want to be at this time. Care is also provided in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospice centers. Care is paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance plans and HMOs. The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization reports that more than 1.5 million people received care from our nation’s hospices last year. Hospice Cleveland County can help with information about care options and choices and ensure you live as fully as possible throughout your entire life. They will make sure your loved ones receive support as well. One of the best ways to make sure you and your loved ones benefit fully from hospice, should you ever need this care, is to talk about it before it becomes an issue. For more information, contact Hospice Cleveland County at 704-487-4677 or visit You will also find information about the moments that hospice makes possible for patients and families at

West Elementary students study matter

Parents and families of first-grade students were invited to West ElementaryS School to participate in 'Second Step' Into Harvest. The focus of the even was to spotlight what the first graders have learned this year using the schoolwide social emotional learning program. Students shared a performance and craft with their families. They also enjoyed donuts and cider during a time of family fellowship. Photos provided by Nikki Nolen

West Elementary School fourth grade students are studying matter. These young scientists had a blast experimenting with vinegar and baking soda proving chemical reactions. They were "bubbling" with excitement as the air filled up the balloons! Photos provided by Nikki Nolen
