KM man wins $2M Powerball Howard Welch III of Kings Mountain said dreams of winning a jackpot helped him win a $2 million Powerball prize. “I always buy a ticket when it’s over $100 million,” Welch said. “I plan to win the jackpot one day.” That dream of winning led him to the 3 Point Market & Grill on Goforth Road in Kings Mountain where he bought a $3 Quick Pick ticket for Wednesday’s drawing. Welch didn’t realize he won until several days later when he went to buy tickets for Saturday’s drawing. “I couldn’t believe it when I saw the numbers,” Welch said. “I kept thinking, ‘Is this real?’ I turned pale and started shaking I was so excited.” Still unsure, Welch said he went back to the store and scanned his ticket to double check. When he heard the music play he knew for sure he was a winner. Welch claimed his prize Monday morning at lottery headquarters in Raleigh.

After required state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $1,415,001. Welch said he plans to use some of the money to get a new house. He’ll invest the rest. The ticket matched the numbers on the five white balls to win $1,000,000. Because he added the $1 Power Play feature, the prize doubled to $2 million when the multiplier was drawn. The ticket beat odds of one in 11.7 million. “Hopefully I’ll be back in here,” Welch said. “We already have our tickets for the next drawing.” The jackpot for this Wednesday’s Powerball drawing is $242 million or $148.1 million cash. Welch is the second person in a week to play Powerball in North Carolina and win a $2 million prize. Margo Konopacke of Travelers Rest, S.C., claimed her prize for the Feb. 3 drawing on Tuesday. She bought her winning ticket while she was getting groceries at the Publix on Greenville Highway in Hendersonville. • 704-739-7496


Mauney Brothers Store being renovated

Downtown businesses receiving facelifts By Loretta Cozart Downtown Kings Mountain is experiencing a Renaissance, as old buildings are brought back to life in the central business district. Take a stroll down Mountain Street and you’ll notice that Griffin Drug Center’s windows have been papered-over as renovations begin there. Next door, at what was recently Kings Tavern, the façade has been cut away and rebricked, windows and doors cut-in along the side, and brickwork for the new patio has begun. Workers were there Saturday laying the new brick. At the old First National Bank of Kings Mountain, renovations have been completed and the grand old lady stands as a jewel on the corner of Mountain Street and Battleground Avenue, setting the bar high for other owners who consider renovating their buildings.

formances in the building,” he explains. “We removed all the downstairs walls and found evidence that stairs once came in from the front. We replaced the back stairs and are installing four new See FACELIFTS, Page 3A

KM Gateway Trail celebrates it’s 10th anniversary A history by Shirley Brutko Eighteen years ago, there was an idea of a trail that could connect the City of Kings Mountain to the three area parks, Crowders Mountain State Park, Kings Mountain State Park, and Kings Mountain National Military Park with a green-

way trail. After many meetings and working with the National Park Service, the trail officially opened in 2009 with 2 ½ miles of trail suited for walking as well as biking, on land donated mostly by Martin Marietta Aggregates, Albemarle Lithium, and the Ware family. The land was recycled mining land with some hills made from the rocks and soil from the huge quarries, See GATEWAY, Page 7A

Doyle and Anita Campbell celebrated their golden wedding anniversary on September 7, 2018. The couple met in Norfolk, VA fifty years ago, after Doyle returned home from Vietnam. “I had gone out to make my way in the world and find my perfect husband,” said Anita. “After a whirlwind romance, we were married in my home church of Resurrection Lutheran here in Kings Mountain.” “I am a very private person and don’t like the limelight. Normally I wouldn’t want an article written about us, but things are different now.” Anita pauses. “Doyle was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease about 10 years ago and he is on dialysis. I want people to know his story, because he desperately needs a kidney transplant.” Anita is Doyle’s primary caregiver and he has faced many health challenges in the last year. Their daughter Anne Campbell Bucci candidly shared her parents’ story on her Facebook page, “My dad is not having the best week. And, as his care-giver, neither is my mother for that matter. For

DOYLE AND ANITA CAMPBELL over nine years, dad controlled his kidney disease through diet and exercise. “Last fall, it became apparent dad’s kidneys were deteriorating rapidly. In December his nephrologist recommended surgery to have a port placed in his abdomen to accommodate peritoneal dialysis. And just before Christmas 2017 my dad started nightly life-saving dialysis – dialysis which he can perform by himself and from home. “Every night at bedtime begins a cumbersome ritual of setting up

the dialysis equipment to accommodate dialysis while he sleeps. And every morning begins with the same ritual of disconnecting the equipment and keeping everything clean and free from bacteria which could cause dangerous infections. “We noticed an almost immediate change in my father when he began dialysis. Physically he looked better. He could eat some of the foods he had avoided for so many years. But we also observed an inner sadness. He knows he must have the dialysis

nightly in order to live. And, he is thankful for modern technology and medicine. But he longs for the freedoms he once had when not tethered nightly to the equipment. “In December 2018, the surgeon who placed the dialysis port discovered dad also had a hernia. So, plans were made to have a secondary route to dialysis in place as he would not be able to use the port in his abdomen when recovering from hernia surgery. “In April, mom and dad See LOVE, Page 7A

Flu activity widespread in NC Influenza activity is rising in North Carolina as we move closer to the peak of the 201819 flu season. Although vaccination early in the season is preferred, it is never too late to get vaccinated and help protect yourself and others from the spread of this dangerous, sometimes deadly virus. Six influenza-associated deaths were reported during the week ending on Feb. 2, and the total number of influenza-associated deaths reported this season is now 35. This does not represent all flu-associated deaths in the state, since many go undiagnosed or unreported. "Flu will be circulating, and infection rates will likely remain high at least for the next several weeks," said State Epidemiologist Zack Moore, MD, MPH. "Getting vaccinated now is the best way to protect yourself and those you come in contact with." The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends vaccination against the flu for everyone 6 months and older. In addition to reducing the risk of infection, vaccination against the flu can make illness milder for those who do get sick and reduces the risk of more serious outcomes. Flu vaccinations are available at hospitals, pharmacies, private medical offices, some federally qualified health care centers and local health departments. The number of flu-associated deaths reported in North Carolina since 2009 has varied from nine during the 2011–2012 season to 391 during the 2017–2018 season. This serves as a reminder that flu can be a serious illness, especially for adults over age 65, children under five, pregnant women and those with

Mt. Zion announces new pastor Mt. Zion Baptist Church is excited to announce the arrival of their new pastor, Leslie S. Davis. Pastor Davis began pastoral January 13. Mt. Zion has a history of community outreach and proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Kings Mountain community. Mt. Zion hosts The Shepherd’s Table Ministry, in its Family Life Center, feeding the homeless and others in need year round. They reach out to the community through their Men of Zion and Women of Zion missionary ministries. They invite the community to participate in outreach opportunities like Vacation Bible School, Community Family & Friends Weekend, Fall Festival, and Gospel on the Lawn. Mt. Zion seeks to provide a place of worship, bible study, and fellowship to residents of Kings Mountain and other surrounding communities. Pastor Davis and his family are a welcomed addition to the Kings Mountain community. Pastor Davis is the former Pastor of The Crossroads Missionary Baptist Church of Lockhart, SC. He completed his undergraduate studies at USC - Upstate, Spartanburg, S.C., with a certain medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease. Everyone should use precautions to protect against the spread of flu and other viruses, including: • Wash hands frequently, preferably with soap and water or an approved hand sanitizer • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then discard the tissue promptly • If you are sick with flu, staying home until you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours • Anyone who thinks they have the flu should contact their doctor right away to see if they need treatment with a prescription antiviral drug, such as Tamiflu. Early treatment with an antiviral drug can help prevent flu infections from becoming more serious. Treatment with a prescription antiviral drug is especially important for hospitalized patients, people with severe flu illness and those who are at high risk of serious flu complications based on their age or health. As a result of the increased flu activity, “Effective at 7 a.m. on Friday, February 8, 2019, Atrium Health restricted hospital access for visitors 12 years old and under at all of its Charlotte region in-patient hospitals. The tighter restrictions are a result of the growing prevalence of flu cases in the region.” Accoring to their website, “Atrium Health is joining Novant Health, Cone Health, Wake Forest Baptist Health

Downtown KM’s Mauney Brothers Store is being renovated. Four new bathrooms are being framed-in.

FACELIFTS From Page 1A bathrooms. We are keeping the tin ceiling to provide as much character as possible, because once you remove the character, you can’t put it back.” Johnson bought the building in 2016 from a bank foreclosure. The building sat vacant for nearly 10 years. Since then, pricing for renovations have skyrocketed. At the time, the building was considered condemnable, according to Johnson. “A big help to folks interested in renovating these old buildings would that they be on the National Historic Register,” said Johnson. “Currently, no downtown buildings are on the register. To qualify, renovations must have been completed 50 plus years ago. Many think prior renovations in my building excludes it from tax credits, but that isn’t really the case,” he adds. “I would like to see the City aggressively pursue having all or part of the downtown listed on the registry. That way any contributing building would qualify for the tax credits. It would be a huge incentive to get owners to renovate and to do so in a historically accurate way,” he added. “We added a new HVAC system that ended coming in considerably over budget due to the increased cost of construction that occurred since I bought the building. We prefer to restore the façade to its original state, if the budget will allow.” Trying to determine when past renovations occurred can be difficult, but records like the Herald give clues. In the June 30, 1914 Herald, G.G. Page, Editor and Owner commented, “The large store

Work will begin at an early date on the rebuilding of the Mauney building that was burned early in the spring. Mr. W.A. Mauney is erecting two new brick residences. The interior of the Herald office is undergoing a change and will soon look much better. “The Mauney Drug Store has been provided with a metal ceiling and other marks of improvement are evidenced.” Four months later, in the October 15 Herald, Page notes, “The installing of glass fronts in Mauney Brothers stores is about completed. These fronts add greatly to the appearance of the stores and when they are properly displayed will be splendid drawing cards for the business. The building is two-story and is well finished. The rooms are large, light and airy. H. T. Fulton will occupy his old stand. The side formerly occupied by J. B. Rhyne has not been engaged.” Other evidence of changes to the building can be seen in the renovations themselves. Evidence of a fire can be seen in what appears looks like smoke on the bricks of the

second floor. Several cutouts in the brick appear to be where stove pipes exited the building. Notes on I-Beams installed when roof replacement occurred are also helpful clues as to when updates were made throughout the years. Meanwhile, construction on the building continue, with new stairs at the front right side of the building. “What we can do with the front windows depends upon what is allowed. We want the space to have the comforts of a new building without losing its character.” Johnson adds, “A lot of business has occurred in this building since the store was built. We hope to bring the store back, so it can witness another 140 years of Kings Mountain’s history.” When asked what plans he has for the building, Johnson replied, “I plan to lease the space, so we need it to appeal to a wide variety of tenants.” I’d love to see a restaurant or brewery here, preferably one to draw visitors into downtown. We have two floors with 5,000 square feet each, so lots can be done with it for the right tenant.

A new stairway has been added to allow for access upstairs from Battleground Avenue.

TODAY’S QUOTE: “The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.” –Maya Angelou

Pieces of Kings Mountain History By Loretta Cozart This week, the Herald featured COZART Lincoln Academy for Black History Month. However, Lincoln Academy’s Mildred Wellmon Elementary School wasn’t the only Rosenwald School near Kings Mountain. From records at the state and at Fisk University, it appears that there were five Rosenwald Schools near Kings Mountain. Other Rosenwald schools were built in Cleveland County. The schools listed below are in or near Kings Mountain. Borders School on

Stony Point Rd. was a one-teacher type school that opened in the Waco vicinity in 1929 - 1930 at a cost of $1,890.00. Ebenezer School (D) Kings Mountain was a three-teacher type school that opened in 1923 – 1924 at a cost of $2,554.00. No photo of the school is available. Kings Mountain School was a five-teacher type brick school that opened in 1924 at a cost of $10,500.00. It was located on Parker Street near the intersection of Watterson Street. Mildred Wellmon Elementary was a six-teacher type school at Lincoln Academy that opened in 1924 – 1925 at a cost of $17,000.00.

Compact school was a three-teacher type school opened in the Dixon community and was built between 1924 and 1925 at a cost of $3,200.00. An unlikely relationship between Julius Rosenwald, philanthropist and President of Sears Roebuck, and Booker T. Washington of the Tuskegee Institute, resulted in the building of more than 5,000 Rosenwald Schools in the south during the early 20th century. Their work is considered the most important initiative to advance black education during that century. According to the National Trust for Historic

The Kings Mountain School was added to over the years and the complex was later renamed Davidson High School. (Photo provided) Preservation, “By 1928, one third of the South’s rural black children and teachers were served by Rosenwald Schools.”

Mr. Rosenwald had a unique style regarding philanthropy. He never fully-funded any project. He required individuals

in the community to contribute, along with committing public funds, to apply for Rosenwald Funds.

It seems everyone is in jeopardy. Most all of us know we have messed up in the past in some form. People today go through multiple marriages and relationships knowing mistakes were made. We go through jobs and careers knowing that looking back we could have done some things differently. We look back through times of high school, college, and young adult life knowing that if we had another chance, we would likely do some things differently. Is there no room for grace and forgiveness in America? What about when a person says, “I have messed up and made mistakes but that’s not who I am today.” Is there no room in America for redemption, a new start with old things being put behind? If we can never overcome our failures, sins and shortcomings in America then we are surely a doomed society. Oliver Cromwell was right when he said, “If we forget the past, we are condemned to repeat it.” However, if we cannot forgive the past, we can never outlive it.

The Love of a daughter Ruth and Naomi Do you know a good mother-in-law joke? Probably. If not, I am sure you have heard a mother-in-law joke or jab at DR. JONATHAN mothers-inM. BUNDON law in genWorship Pastor eral. I happen First Baptist Church to be blessed with a caring and fairly well-adjusted motherin-law. I jest, but I do not write this only because she reads my articles. My relationship with and love for her stems from my love for her daughter, responsibility to

care for her as a son-in-law, and respect for her as a person. Today let us revisit one of the best examples of familial love and loyalty, Ruth and Naomi. To review, Ruth, a Moabite, and Naomi a Jewess, both suffer the death of their husbands while living in Moab. As such, Ruth the daughter-in-law was under no obligation to her mother-in-law Naomi. Furthermore, Naomi decides to return to her homeland and suggests Ruth stay in Moab stating there would be nothing for Ruth in Judah. Ruth, who loved and respected Naomi, refused to leave Naomi. By doing so, Ruth had to know the decision to go with Naomi would most likely result in

remaining a widow and possible outsider the rest of her life. Ruth implored Naomi, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go, I will go, and where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me.” (Ruth 1:16-17) At this, Naomi knew there was no changing Ruth’s mind. By doing so, God graced both of them in Judah with a husband and child for Ruth, and a grandson and restored joy for Naomi. What can we learn from Ruth and Naomi? Ruth loved and

was loyal to Naomi. To be loved, one must be loving. Naomi loved Ruth. Ruth’s loyalty to Naomi irrespective of no lawful obligation should inspire us to do the same. Love one another as Ruth and Naomi loved each other. Be a loyal friend, son or daughter. This does not mean you condone bad behavior, but it does compel each of us to live and love as Christ lived. To be sure, many of us were blessed with good parents, siblings, and in-laws. For others, relationships may be dysfunctional at best. As much as it depends on you, love others, and be worthy of love and loyalty. This week, write a note to a family member, thanking them for their love and loyalty to you.

Lincoln Academy played integral role in the black community Lincoln Academy was well known as a boarding school for black students locally. Located at the base of Crowders Mountain in Gaston County, it was known to be in Kings Mountain, NC. Missionary Emily Prudden opened the school in 1886 as a boarding school for black girls. In 1889 the academy began admitting boys. For 67 years the school stood as a beacon for education to the community and the lessons learned there had a far-reaching impact upon the world. Lincoln Academy sat on 50 acres at All Healing Springs, located between Kings Mountain and Gastonia near Crowders Mountain, just south of Highway 74. In 1891, the school was deeded to the American Missionary Association (AMA), an organization known as a “nondenominational society that worked to develop educational opportunities for blacks and other minorities in the United States. These schools were actually open to all students and often operated as integrated institutions during the Reconstruction period,” according to Encyclopedia Britannica. The AMA’s philosophy resulted in the them inviting the YMCA to hold youth delegations (sometimes called camps or conferences) at Lincoln Academy. According to the University of Minnesota’s website, the YMCA played an integral role in carrying the “Y mission to black communities across the country. Building sound programs from the ground up, they were major contributors to the black selfhelp movement…. these self-help institutions have provided a fertile ground for many black leaders of this country, who in turn provided positive symbols for African American young people.” The North Carolina,

Virginia, and District of Columbia delegations to the 1913 student conference was held at Lincoln Academy. Attendee Addie Huston commented, “many of these youths caught their first clear vision of the Kingdom of God here on earth and started out with a valiant and glorious faith to find their places in it.” ( By 1916, Lincoln Academy Principal I. Alva Hart reported to the AMA that there were 12 teachers and more than 200 students, 68 of whom were boarding students, the others being day students of the region. The Academy had 11 buildings. In her book, “What a Woman Ought to Be and to Do: Black Professional Women Workers During the Jim Crow Era,” Stephanie J. Shaw shared Eula Wellman Dunlap’s story, “on ‘Community Day’ in Kings Mountain, NC, all the black people in town came out to help with the physical upkeep of Lincoln Academy and its grounds. “Women emptied bed ticks and washed them, men hauled in wagon loads of straw, and women restuffed the mattresses. Children carried pillows, fetched drinks of water, and did whatever else they could manage. “Throughout the year, women made sheets, pillowcases, quilts, and gowns that they stored at the school in case anyone in the neighborhood became ill or otherwise in need. Here, too, most of these people had no children in Lincoln Academy, since students, like Beula Hester, were primarily boarders from out of town. “Kings Mountain had a free public school for its essentially working-class black residents. But these residents nevertheless supported Lincoln Academy because of its role in the development of black children in general,” Dunlap remembered.

The state of North Carolina began converting the academy to a public school in 1922, and in 1923 the school’s first all-black faculty took over the educational responsibilities. By 1924 - 1925 the Mildred Wellmon School (a Rosenwald School) was opened on campus. By In 1938 – 1939 the school received accreditation through the North Carolina State Board of Education and the eighth grade was added. In time, the school taught first through twelfth grades. As public schools became more popular across the nation, enrollment at the academy declined. In 1955 the entire school, faculty, day students, and boarding students were moved to Lincoln High School in Bessemer City to finish the school year. After that, the school became completely public. Several graduates rose to fame after their years at Lincoln Academy. Actor and Director Ivan Dixon, of “Hogan’s Heroes” notoriety attended. John T. Biggers, a wellknown muralist after the Harlem Renaissance was featured in an exhibit of “Young Negro Art” in New York’s Museum of Art in

TRAIL From Page 1A and an old road bed once used by mining vehicles. A wonderful bridge over I-85 belonging to the Lithium Company was also given for the trail. In the past few years another 4 ½ miles of trail has been added taking the trail to Galilee Church Road to the south. Three more miles of trail are planned that should take the trail into Crowders Mountain State Park. In the past 10 years, very important additions have been made to the trail by Eagle Scout and Gold Girl Scout projects as well as some Kings Mountain High School senior projects. In 2016 Duke Energy became sponsors for a butterfly garden along with the trail committee on top of one of the hills called the Plateau which has now grown into a wonderful pollinator garden with a trail and lots of flowering plants. Duke Energy employees Cheryl Kelton, Distribution Craft and Technical Training and Randy Hinnant, Kings Mountain Generation Support created a Corporate volunteer project and partnered with the Trail to create and maintain a pollinator garden. “We’re all honored as strong enthusiasts and participants in sustaining our environment and could not keep this project going without volunteers and company support. It’s been an awesome experience and look forward to our Spring volunteer event,” said Cheryl

Kelton. The Cardio hill, a nice climb up has a beautiful overlook of the City of Kings Mountain and beyond, sponsored by Larry and Evelyn Hamrick. Land acquired from Concrete Supply Company became an overflow parking lot in 2018. The trail is a partnership between Cleveland County, the City of Kings Mountain, and the Gateway Trails Committee as well as the Carolina Thread Trail, Rails to Trails for North Carolina, and a Recreational Trail Site for the United States. Mary Wade Smith, committee member and past Secretary, Kings Mountain Gateway Trail shared, " With great vision and effort, diligence and cooperation from county, city, industries, and volunteers, and a dedicated board of directors we have made the Kings Mountain Gateway Trail one of the best in North Carolina and we are not through yet!” A 5K/10Mile and Fun Run fundraiser happens annually the first Saturday every year in March and has continued to be a big success for the trail. This year’s event is March 9, 2019, 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Sign up today on line at www. or contact 704 739-9663 for more information. Several other events also happen at the trail every year. Current officers for the trail are Doug Satterfield, President; Ronnie Franks, V-President; Starr Dowell, Secretary; Bill McMurrey, Treasurer and Shirley Brutko, Director.

Just ask the 100,000+ people on the waiting list. Some wait years; some die while waiting. The average wait time is five years or more from a deceased donor. “However, there is another option: receiving a kidney from a living donor. Asking a family member or friend to consider donating a kidney for him is difficult, but greatly improves his chances of getting a transplant. A living kidney donation typically lasts longer with better function. You only need one kidney to

live a long, healthy life! “This past spring my parents were fortunate enough to secure an appointment to explore the possibility of kidney transplant at Wake Forest and had a glimmer of hope. They attended an information session and returned in early July for further testing to determine if dad is a potential kidney transplant candidate.” Since Bucci’s Facebook post, the Campbell’s have not had any updates from Wake Forest Baptist Hospital regarding a donor. Not knowing is difficult on the family. “Wake Forest has encouraged my parents to seek a secondary, or back-up donor. So, if you have a burning desire

or bucket list item to donate a kidney, please reach out to me, my sister, or my parents. The bright side of all of this is that my parents are very encouraged by their encounters at Wake. “Hope is in the forecast. My father’s future is bright thanks to the wonders of medicine and generous individuals who volunteer to donate. Thank you taking the time to read this long post and maybe now you know a little more about kidney disease, dialysis, and life-saving kidney transplants,” Bucci shares. Anita adds, “This is a story of brotherly love more than our love story. Doyle is a good man who worked for

Gaston Hospice. He is a devoted husband and father to our daughters, Anne Bucci and Emily Lemoine… and a wonderful grandfather to our grandchildren. People may not know how badly Doyle needs a kidney. On August 31, he was approved for a kidney transplant. “Wake Forest, Chapel Hill, Duke, and East Carolina have a wonderful program. Even if you aren’t a match for Doyle, if someone donates a kidney, they will find a kidney for Doyle through their network,” Campbell said.

He held up a plate, which he said was “as close as we can get to North Carolina barbecue, it’s just shredded cardboard soaked in vinegar.” Responding for North Carolina, Gov. Roy Cooper tweeted, “Those are fighting words. Vinegar and tomato have their place -- y’all have a mustard problem.” An unsigned comment from BH Media in the Winston Salem Journal cleverly summed up Colbert’s situation with North Carolinians: “You’ve pulled North Carolinians in, Colbert. You may have stepped in some pit.” But Colbert says he is ready for our attacks. “I welcome your vinegar-stained letters, you poor flavor-deprived bastards.” If you want to send him a vinegar-stained electronic message, you can write him at http://www.fastnote. com/stephen-colbert

Or you could write him a thank you note. Tell him we appreciate the attention. Even his crazy nonsense helps spread the word. And we welcome the competition. If folks from South Carolina and other states driving home on I-95, I-85, or I-40 stop at some of our classic barbecue eateries and sample the product, I think they will forget about the Colbert craziness. But there is a problem. We are losing some of our best barbecue places. Last month the massive Bill’s Barbecue near I-95 in Wilson closed after more than 55 years in business. Its founder, Bill Ellis, retired in 2015 and died in 2017. Even when Bill’s 850 seats were full, visiting its bountiful buffet was like a warm family meal. But keeping it going proved to be too much for his widow. A few weeks earlier, Allen & Son near I-40 and I-85 north of Chapel Hill

shut its doors. For many years, owner Keith Allen worked early and late to chop the hickory wood and manage the slowcooked fire that brings pork shoulders to perfect eating condition. Southern Living praised Allen & Son and made it one of its “Top Picks” in southern barbecue joints. Colbert’s sassy comments might annoy us, but the loss of these classic barbecue institutions and the threatened loss of other treasured restaurants is our real crisis. Note: If you have a favorite barbecue restaurant that you could not do without, write me a note explaining and describing why. In a few weeks I will share all comments with those who write and with Mr. Colbert. Send your comments to nceateries@

From Page 4A usually makes his living coming up with new ways to make fun of President Donald Trump. Last month, however, he resurrected his barbecue war against us. Making a joke about the good news that a missing three-year-old Craven County boy had been found, he said the bad news was that the boy was now condemned to a lifetime of eating North Carolina barbecue. He has called our barbecue “a sauceless, vinegar-based meat product” and compared the vinegar to toilet cleaner. Back in 2004 Colbert grossly chewed a plug of tobacco. When he spit it out, he said he was adding it to “my chaw juice or, as they call it in North Carolina, barbecue sauce.”

‘Lunch at the Carrousel’ a city park tradition Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. While many people make elaborate plans for the evening on Valentine’s Day, Shelby City Park officials encourage area residents to get an early start on the celebration by making reservations for the “Valentines Lunch at the Shelby City Park Carrousel,” which will be held on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Just $11 pays for lunch catered by Dressing on the Side, along with a live acoustic guitar performance by Eddie Cook – all in the beautiful setting of the Shelby Carrousel, which will be open for rides during and after the lunch until

5 p.m. Lunch will consist of homemade vegetable soup, a sandwich choice, fruit, dessert and a hot or cold drink. “We set the tables up around the outer edge of the carrousel like the spokes of a wheel, so no one has their back to the ride,” says Tommy Forney, amusements supervisor for the parks and recreation department. “We will stop the music once or twice during the lunch to give folks who want to a chance to hop on and ride.” The event is a joint venture of Shelby Parks and Recreation and the Carrousel Friends organization. All funds raised will be split between the two organizations. This will be the 14th year for the event, which made its debut in 2006. “It just seemed like a nice thing to do, to have a special event at a special time in

this unique facility,” says Forney. Forney says the crowd for the event has averaged around 75 each year, with a wide variety of people attending the event. Some folks even make it an annual tradition. “It’s not just for sweethearts – we have a group of retired school teachers who come together every year,” says Forney. For more information about “Lunch at the Carrousel,” search for “Shelby City Parks” on Facebook or visit the park web site at departments/parks-and-recreation.

disconcerting: the squirrels height or that it is glows pink. Of course, you wouldn’t see “pink” unless you had an ultraviolet flashlight and happened across a seldom seen Fox squirrel. Both scenarios are highly unlikely. “Just another boring rodent, right?” said a post on the NC Candid Critters Facebook page. “Not unless you think that glowing pink is boring!” On a separate note, the North American flying squir-

rel was also reported to have a pink florescent glow, reported last week. According to that report, Jon Martin, a forestry professor at the state’s Northland College in Wisconsin, pointed his ultraviolet flashlight at a North American Flying squirrel eating at his birdfeeder and its fur glowed florescent pink. That got Martin's attention, so he did a study of 135 squirrel skins from different Science Museums in the area to see if other squirrels emitted the same glow. He didn’t limit his study to flying squirrels but determined that they were the only species he observed that glowed. Of all the flying squirrels studied, only one did not glow. The group intends to expand their study to flying squirrels across the world to see if this is unique to their area or is common across the entire species. Up to this discovery, florescence had only been observed in American Opossums. This discovery causes one to ponder why scientists ever thought to check squirrels for such a unique trait. If you have flying squirrels in your backyard, get your ultraviolet flashlight and prepare yourself for a light show.

Kings Mountain High’s women’s basketball team clinched at least a tie for the Big South 3A Conference championship last week with a victory at Ashbrook. Heading into last night’s final regular season home game with Forestview, the Lady Mountaineers had a two-game lead with just two games remaining. Front row, left to right, Treazure Hopper, Hannah Clark. Sarah Drennan, Essence Houser, Aleenih Carter-Kee and Saniya Wilson. Back row, head coach Nicholas Inman, Kennedy Barnes, Aaliyah Byers, and assistant coaches Haley Blanton and Darrel Wilson. Niya Kelly, not pictured, missed the game due to participation in the state 3A indoor track and field meet. This is Kings Mountain’s first women’s basketball championship since 1983.

‘Strong’ Burns ladies hand KM first league loss 66-63 After wrapping up their first conference championship since 1983 in their previous match against three-time defending Big South champ Gastonia Ashbrook team, Kings Mountain’s Lady Mountaineers ran into a ‘Strong’ Burns five Friday night at Parker Gym and suffered their first

conference loss, 66-63. In the nightcap the Mountaineers rolled to an easy 84-55 victory that kept them a game ahead of Ashbrook in the race for the regular season championship. Kings Mountain was scheduled to host Forestview last night and will end the regular season Friday

at Crest. Barring any unforeseen happenings, both KM teams should go into the state playoffs as the #1 seeds from the Big South. Playing without the services of Niya Kelly, who was competing in the NCHSAA Indoor Track championship, the Lady See BURNS, Page 3B

Kings Mountain’s girls clinched at least a tie for the Big South 3A Conference championship and the boys moved back into sole possession of first place with a doubleheader sweep of Ashbrook last week in Gastonia. The girls came back from a five-point deficit in the final minute and got a threepoint bomb from freshman Saniya Wilson to defeat the Lady Green Wave 47-43. In the nightcap, two bombs from behind the arc from freshman Isaiah Tate lifted the Mountaineers to a 77-76 overtime victory over the Green Wave, which had benefitted from the Mountaineers’ loss to Hunter Huss a few nights earlier to move into a tie for the lead. The Lady Mountaineers became the first KM women’s team to win a conference championship since 1983 as they took a three-game lead with just three conference games remaining. With Ashbrook and North Gaston now tied for second place – and both having lost twice to the Lady Mountaineers – the KM girls have locked up the top conference seed for the upcoming state playoffs. Once again, the Lady Mountaineers got outstanding defense and a strong 1-2 scoring punch from senior Hannah Clark and Wilson. Clark finished with 21 points, with 18 of them coming from downtown Gastonia. Wilson connected for 20 points. Her three-pointer with 1:10 left put the Lady Mountaineers on top 45-43 and the KM defense made sure the Green Wave would not score again.

KM’s Zeke Littlejohn jams one home in Friday’s win over Burns. Senior Sarah Drennan had a stellar defensive performance against Ashbrook standout freshman Zoey Ward, holding her to 12 points. The trio of Aaliyah Byers, Niya Kelly and Kennedy Barnes held University of Alabama Birmingham commit Summer Schloss to 12 points, and held her scoreless in the fourth quarter. Byers had two points and nine rebounds and Barnes had three points and six boards. See ASHBROOK, Page 3B

Champion KM wrestlers had a vision When a new coach takes over a program, one of the most difficult tasks they often face is to attempt to change the culture of that program to fit their vision. Three years ago, KMHS wrestling coach Shane Short said he had a vision of using a “team first" culture to return Kings Mountain wrestling to the competitive level it has been known for in the past. When asked about what it means to have a team first culture, Coach Short said "wrestling is a great teacher or life lessons; Our kids now understand that putting the team first and setting aside individual ambitions for the betterment of the team is the same approach we should take as we become young employees, husbands, and fathers. We don't set individual goals at the beginning of the season. We only have three team goals that we call the three C's . Our goals every year are to win the county, conference, and compete in the dual team playoffs. We believe that if we are successful in achieving these three goals then individual goals will take care of themselves." This team first approach proved useful as this season's Mountaineers achieved all 3 C's. Kings Mountain swept the county

competition by defeating Burns 62-17, Shelby 7212, and Crest 41-30. The Mountaineers finished the Big South Conference regular season with a 6-1 mark and a share of the conference regular season championship. With playoff implications on the line, the Mountaineers went on to win the Big South Conference tournament and claim the conference’s top playoff seed. The conference tournament championship was a total team effort as 11 of the 12 Mountaineers in the tournament placed in the top four in their respective weight classes to score team points for the Mountaineers. Kings Mountain was represented in six of the 14 championship finals matches with two conference champions and four runners-up. The future is certainly bright for the Mountaineers as they return; 13 wrestlers that were regular starters or started at some point throughout the season. Mountaineers making the All-Big South Conference team were: 106 - Koby Rikard; 113 - Aiden Wilson; 120- Ryne Smith; 138 - Dayvion Downs – champion; 145 - Peyton Fisher; and 152 Nate Groves – champion.


KM fouled 22 times with two of their top three scorers fouling out in the fourth quarter. Senior Hannah Clark led the KM scoring with 20 points, including three treys. She had a potential game-tying three bounce off the rim at the buzzer. Senior Sarah Drennan contributed 13 points and freshman Saniya Wilson 14, but Wilson was held scoreless in the fourth quarter as she spent the last 3:43 of the third quarter and the first four minutes of the fourth quarter on the bench with four fouls. She left the game for good with 53 seconds left on a charging foul. Burns battled back from its halftime deficit to take a 48-47 lead into the fourth period but KM went back ahead on a basket by Essence Houser. The lead changed hands several times and it was tied at 56-all following Drennan’s three with 2:46 left. A driving layup by Clark with 27 seconds left cut the Bulldogs’ lead to 64-63 but

Mountaineers had a hard time in general competing against the Lady Bulldogs’ inside strength, and in particular with their Trisonia Strong who kept the scoreboard lit all night with a 31-point effort and controlled the rebounds. Strong scored 11 points in the first half but Kings Mountain went into the break with a 36-31 lead. With great positioning inside on both offense and defense, Strong lit it up with 10 points in each of the final two periods to lead the upset. Even with her outstanding play that saw her take pass after pass and bank the ball off the board into the net, the big difference in the game was free throw shooting. Burns paraded to the foul line all night and canned 16 of 30 freebies to the Lady Mountaineers’ 5 of 14. Burns was called for just 14 fouls while

At the recent Mountaineer duals, KMHS wrestling coach, Shane Short, and his son Koby Rikard both reached career milestones. In the second match of the day, a 54-25 victory over Ashbrook, Coach Short reached his 100th career win. Since then, he has added a few more victories bringing his career record to 106-19. A couple hours later, in a 57-24 victory over South Point, Koby Rikard notched his 100th individual victory. "It was really a special day to be able to celebrate the 100th win milestone with my son," said Coach Short.

free throws by Imone Howze and Timone Jeffries wrapped up the upset. In a game where the KM men could have gone over the century mark, the Bulldogs could manage to keep it close only in the opening minutes. They actually led three times in the opening 2 ½ minutes but the Mountaineers turned up the tempo and rolled to a 32-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. Zeke Littlejohn and Eli Paysour, who would finish with 22 points apiece to lead the KM offense, got the rout going with 10 and 11 points, respectively. With the Mountaineers on top 11-10 with 4:12 on the clock, they reeled off 18 straight points. Kobe Paysour got things going with a long three, and Kaylon Wade hit another trey from the corner and the lead was suddenly 1910. Eli Paysour scored three straight buckets to stretch the margin to 25-10, then Littlejohn canned a pair of free throws and Eli Paysour stole the ball in the Burns backcourt and raced down court for a jam to take the score to 29-10. The second quarter was much of the same as the Mountaineers went into the break with a 58-26 advantage.

By that time Littlejohn had 20 of his 22 points. Even with Kings Mountain substituting freely, they still outscored the Bulldogs 22-14 in the third quarter to take an 80-40 lead into the final eight minutes, all of which were played on the mercy rule. Freshman Isaiah Tate came off the bench as early as the second quarter and canned two straight treys and finished with 12 points. Sophomore point guard Kobe Paysour scored 10 and had his usual fine game on defense and setting up the offense. All 12 of the KM players saw action and nine of them scored.

ASHBROOK From Page 1B Shayanna Portee led the Green Wave with 15 points. Two long threes by Tate to start the overtime put the KM men up 76-70 after the two teams ended regulation tied at 70-all. The Green Wave battled back to cut the difference to 76-75 but missed some shots and were forced to foul and Kobe Paysour hit a free throw to account for the final margin. Ashbrook became the first team this season to hold KM’s all-time leading scorer Zeke Littlejohn under double figures. He finished with nine points, but Eli Paysour popped the nets for 17 and Tate and John Harmon Melton had their best games of the year with 16 points

apiece. Tate hit six of his eight field goal attempts, including 4-of-6 threes. Kobe Paysour had his usual all-around fine game with 14 points, eight rebounds, 10 assists and three steals. He hit 8 of 10 from the free throw line. Eli Paysour had eight boards and two blocks. Ashbrook’s James Dotson led all scorers with 31.
