Newspapers carry the news of the day, births, baptisms, graduations, marriages, divorces, and deaths. Often the best record of a person’s life is their obituary. Newspapers also describe daily lives. People mistakenly consider those stories mundane, but they describe events of the day that help us understand and individual or community better. It adds detail obituaries don’t have room to provide. In Kings Mountain, most retail business occurred in the downtown business district prior to 1965. Since the newspaper was based there, the editor often shared the details of a new building or business in town. Most stories shared in the current editions of the Herald regarding historic downtown businesses were gleaned from these online stories from the Herald. But DigitalNC has much more to offer than newspapers. Mauney Memorial Library and the Kings Mountain Historical Museum added many photos from their archives over the years and new ones were recently added. If you haven’t looked online lately, you might have missed some new treasures. Some of the most interesting records we have about Kings Mountain are two films recorded by H. Lee Waters. One was shot between 1938 and 1940. The other was made in

1941. Thanks to the stewardship of the Kings Mountain Fire Department, these films are now preserved at The NC State Archives, too. Photographer Herbert Lee Waters traveled from the Piedmont to the Mountains, filming people in their hometowns doing everyday things. He recorded more than 250 films in all and did it to feed his family during the Great Depression. People were recorded just as they were: children at school, people at work, and shoppers traveling up and down Mountain Street and Battleground Avenue. Both these films are been made available at The NC Archives by the Water’s family. Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill have a few additional ones, too. Walking down memory lane is now as easy as sitting down to your computer. Check out https:// to peruse yearbooks, newspapers, images, memorabilia, city directories and audiovisuals. Once in the section you choose, search for Kings Mountain. You’ll be surprised what you’ll find. Even newcomers to the city will find it fascinating how Kings Mountain residents valued their history enough to save it for future generations. And thanks to dedicated historians, you can access the information from your own home.

We’re Almost There Part 1

P e o ple love to rush things. Easter is not exempt from such holidays. However, I wish we Rev. Joshua as a colMorgan lective of Advent p e o p l e Lutheran Church w o u l d slowdown and experience the coming days with anticipation. This past Sunday was Palm Sunday. It’s the day when some churches have palm branches ready for their church goers at the doors of the church. When the Gospel is read and song is sung, they began to wave their palms in exclamation,

“Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” (Matthew 21:9) It’s a beautiful service. It’s a somber service, because with great expectation, you know what will be coming next. But, just like my original warning, I will not rush. What does that Jesus look like today, riding in on a donkey, in our own lives? Many expected a Jesus to ride into Jerusalem on a horse, wearing armor, ready for battle; however, he rode in meekly, like a Lamb to slaughter. That’s the point. That’s the point that so many people missed. In their very midst was the Man, God deep in flesh, who was sent to take away their sins, die on a cross, and be raised from the dead.

Page 5A

That very man, foretold in scriptures old, that very man, who was present with God the Father when the world was created had COME to SAVE! Yet, many didn’t see! Today, that is still the case. Many don’t see, believe, nor do they care. Yet, we are called to love them all the same. We are called to the just like Jesus. Be gentle in every situation. Just as Jesus rode into Jerusalem, not marching with physical armies, but spiritual armies; might some our situations be different. Yes, we are called to stand our ground, but don’t get so worked up – so quickly. Be slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love! When Jesus came into Jerusalem on that first Palm

Sunday, the enemy knew the game plan. That’s what we see played out Holy Week. I encourage you to go to a church that has Holy Week Services if your church does not. Don’t rush Easter. The Work on the Cross was Holy Work, Godly, Work, Goodly Work…. Not Rushed Work! The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” Matthew 21: 9 NIV Lord, thank you for coming. Thank you for saving. We love you. Amen.

“I AM WOMAN” reception at Southern Arts Society By Jewel Reavis Artists will gather Saturday evening, April 13, to learn who will be the top winner in this year’s I AM WOMAN art competition at Southern Arts Society in Kings Mountain. “I Am Woman” is an annual exhibit dedicated to the feminine or the essence of being a woman. Artists from around the region have entered over 60 pieces of art - paintings, photography and three-dimensional works for this competition. The reception begins at 6 pm, with the presentation of awards at 7 pm. Prizes will be given for first, second and third place, along with three merit awards. This is a free event and dress is casual. The I AM WOMAN exhibit will be on view in the galleries of Southern Arts Society through May 17. Judging the artwork is Mark Hamilton, Professor of Fine Arts, Winthrop University. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Mark fell in love with photography early on in life. After serving in the military, he returned to New York City and attend Parsons School of Design. Mark left Parsons after one year to pursue a professional career in photography. His work led to assignments with Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, then on to Woman’s Wear Daily and W & M magazine working with Anne Klein, Donna Karan, Liz Claiborne, Cynthia Rowley, Malcom Forbes, Frank Stella, Ralph Lauren, Michael Graves, Carolina Herrera, Norma Kamali, among others. A move to North Carolina began a change to personal projects and a return to the study of fine arts at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte; pursuing primarily painting at first, along with work in Religion and Women’s Studies and obtaining his BFA. Mark is presently a tenured Professor of Fine Arts at Winthrop University. Mark pursues personal fine arts projects, collaborative projects with photographer Jennifer Ham-

LEMON POKE CAKE 1 box lemon cake mix* 1 c sugar 3 eggs 1 c fresh squeezed lemon juice 1/2 c butter melted 1 c whipping cream 1/4 c sugar 1 tsp lemon zest Instructions • Prepare the cake mix in a 9x13 pan, according to the box instructions. • While the cake is baking, grab a medium sized microwave-safe bowl and whisk together the sugar and eggs until completely combined. Then whisk in the lemon juice and melted butter. • Microwave on high in 1 minute intervals, stirring each time, for 2 minutes. Then microwave in 30 second intervals until the mixture has began to boil. When you take it out of the microwave to stir, you’ll notice it has thickened slightly. Set aside. • When the cake comes out of the oven, immediately take a butter knife or meat fork and poke holes all around the cake. • Pour the warm lemon curd slowly over the entire cake, giving it time to soak into the holes a bit; refrigerate for at least 2 hours. • Once the cake has had enough time to cool, pour the whipping cream into a bowl and mix (with hand mixer) until stiff peaks form. • Add the sugar and beat well. Fold in the lemon zest and spread over the cake. Top with yellow sprinkles and lemon slices, if desired. • You can make this 24 hours in advance. If you make it too much earlier than that, the whipped cream will begin to flatten

Author’s newest novel chronicles Lake Lure fire of 2016 Mathew called up fire companies from all over the state who weren’t already fighting the twenty fires raging in the western NC mountains; men and women firefighters from Wake County, who’d never seen a forest fire before, solemnly loading on a bus in Raleigh headed for Lake Lure after a prayer from the county’s emergency management head that they all come back the same as they had left. “CATCHING FIRE is the story of the heroism and professionalism of the men and women of the state’s firefighting community during the worst fire outbreak experienced in North Carolina in decades,” said Derrick Clouston, Deputy DirecBefore the Party Rock Fire was contained, it raged for fourteen days and was responsible for what is considered the largest call for mutual aid the state has ever seen. “This was a story that deserved to be told and couldn’t be made up,” said Senehi who writes historical novels that take place in western NC. “The facts are almost implausible,” continued Senehi: 500 wildland firefighters and 500 structural firefighters all battling the fire on four fronts at one time; the fire exploding into the US Forest Service’s number one priority in the country for seven days; smoke-jumpers from a Navajo reservation hearing the howls from the Full Moon Wolfdog Sanctuary on top of Shumont Mountain and breaking into a traditional wolf dance; emergency managers who on the heels of Hurricane

tor, Office of the NC State Fire Marshal. “The Party Rock Fire of November 2016 will open the door to the often unseen acts of dedication, sacrifice, and commitment that can only be understood by those who undertake the challenge and honor of serving as one of North Carolina’s over 52,000 highly trained and well equipped firefighters, of whom approximately 42,000 are volunteers and who come from the 1,940 fire stations throughout the state’s 100 counties—ultimately living up to our state’s motto, Esse Quam Videri: To be rather than to seem.” “The four main characters in the novel are fictitious,” says

Senehi. “However, the actual names of the Forest Service commanders, fire chiefs, and emergency management directors are used throughout the book. My biggest ‘take away’ from researching this fire and the response it generated is a conviction that anyone can go to sleep in North Carolina knowing that if there’s a fire, everything that can be done, will be done to keep them safe.”

Rose Senehi will be talking about her ninth novel, Catching Fire, at the Mauney Memorial Library on Tuesday, May 7 at 6 p.m. The book chronicles the Party Rock Fire that started in Lake Lure on November 5, 2016, and before it was done, clawed its way into three counties and burned 7,171 woodland acres with no lives lost or structures destroyed. “To say the Party Rock Fire was complex is an understatement,” said author, Rose Senehi. “It took everything the state and the country’s firefighting resources could muster to save the over 1,200 homes and cabins in the fire’s path.” Coming to the aid of the NC Forest Service that managed the fire, were over 225 fire companies from 56 counties, 250 NC Rangers, and 23 wildland crews from all over the country, including Alaska. “I listed all the North Carolina companies as well as the wildland crews from out of state at the back of the book, and reading them never fails to bring tears to my eyes,” said Senehi who lives in Chimney Rock and was among the evacuees. “Fire companies came with their engines, brush trucks and firefighters from all over North Carolina, from villages and hamlets like Puppy Creek, Haw River, Bostic, to cities like Raleigh, Greensboro, Wilmington, Charlotte and Winston-Salem.”

Truth in Caller ID Act filed Bathroom vandal arrested by Speaker Tim Moore By Loretta Cozart

State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) and three of his colleagues filed legislation on Wednesday to prohibit the use of misleading telephone identification methods by solicitors in North Carolina. House Bill 724 Truth in Caller ID Act is sponsored by Rep. Jason Saine (R-Lincoln), Rep. Phil Shepard (R-Onslow), Rep. Chris Humphrey (R-Lenoir), and Speaker Moore. The legislation would prohibit any telephone solicitor from causing misleading information to be transmitted to users of caller identification technologies or otherwise block or misrepresent the origin of the telephone solicitation. “I hear it from my friends and neighbors, the people I represent, everywhere I go,” Moore said. “The constant use of misleading phone numbers by telemarketers disrupts their businesses and daily lives.” “Requiring telephone solicitors to accurately identify who they are is a commonsense reform to help

TIM MOORE families and businesses inundated with sales calls.” Telephone solicitors would be allowed to use their contact information or the name and number of the actual entity the sales call is being made on behalf of under the legislation. Rep. Jason Saine (R-Lincoln) also released a statement: “The Truth in Caller ID Act will bring overdue accountability to telemarketing and provide valuable information for millions of

North Carolinians receiving sales calls that currently block or misrepresent the origin of the solicitation,” Saine said. Current law in North Carolina only prohibits telephone solicitors from knowingly using any method to block or otherwise circumvent a telephone subscriber’s use of a caller identification service. If passed into law, the Truth in Caller ID Act would become effective December 1, 2019.

$12 Million grant to fight Opioid epidemic in NC Governor Cooper announced April 10 that North Carolina will receive a $12 million grant ROY COOPER to continue its fight against the opioid epidemic. The funds will be used for prevention, access to treatment and improved linkages to care. “The opioid crisis harms families, communities and our economy and we’re tackling it head-on to save lives,” said Governor Cooper. “This grant will help prevent overdose deaths and expand access to treatment, which provides a path to recovery.” This new award comes in addition to $54 million already received from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). To date, the total funding has provided treatment for 12,000 North Carolinians suffering from opioids. The latest installment of the grant will continue treatment for people already receiving it and expand care to new people. The funding will also help bolster prevention strategies across the state and build mecha-

nisms to connect individuals to care. An estimated 450,000 North Carolinians – 1 out of every 20 -- are living with an opioid use disorder. Over the past 20 years, more than 12,000 North Carolinians have died from an opioid overdose. In 2018 alone, there were 6,769 emergency visits due to opioid overdoses. Approximately half of people who are hospitalized with an opioid overdose do not have health insurance. Opioid use disorder is a chronic disease, which requires significant, specialized interventions. Like diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers, opioid use disorder requires long-term treatment, which can be quite costly. Stigma, access to treatment providers, and an inability to pay for treatment keep individuals from obtaining the care they need to live, rejoin the workforce, and support their families and communities. Expanding Medicaid in North Carolina would help fight the opioid epidemic by enabling more North Carolinians suffering from substance use disorders to get treatment. Medicaid covers a wide range of life-saving treatments for

individuals with opioid use disorder, including inpatient and outpatient treatment, rehabilitation and medication assisted treatment (MAT). Those with access to affordable health care through Medicaid are twice as likely as the uninsured to receive treatment. “One of the most powerful tools for addressing the opioid epidemic is providing access to health care through affordable insurance coverage,” said N.C. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. “We’ve seen the impact firsthand in states that have expanded access to health insurance. After Ohio closed its insurance coverage gap, 75% of uninsured enrollees with opioid use disorder experienced improved access to care. And Dayton, Ohio – ground zero of the opioid epidemic – saw a 54 percent decrease in opioid deaths. We need every tool in our arsenal to fight this epidemic.” Turning the tide of the opioid crisis is one of Governor Cooper’s primary goals. North Carolina’s Opioid Action Plan lays out key strategies to achieve this goal, such as reducing the oversupply of prescription opioids and increasing treatment and community awareness. DHHS is currently planning a second Opioid Prevention Summit in June 2019, to engage stakeholders to continue the effort. Learn more and register at As part of Governor Cooper’s focus on eliminating the opioid epidemic, his administration has continually sought out grants for treatments and prevention efforts and issued Executive Order No. 48: Prevention and Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder to pave the way for more federal funding for these efforts. People who need help with treatment or recovery can get help by contacting their Local Management Entity/Managed Care Organization (LME/MCO).

On Saturday, April 7, the Kings Mountain Police Department arrested and charged Elliot James Ziegler, 30, of Kings Mountain for destroying one of the public restrooms at Patriots Park. According to Chief Proctor, “quite a lot of damage was done to the facility.” Zeigler was arrested on Sunday by the Kings Mountain Police Department and taken to Cleveland County jail and placed under a $3,000 secured bond. He was charged with defacing a public building and injury to real property. The incident occurred late Saturday afternoon, but was not discovered until after the fact. Proctor credits the public’s assistance and surveillance video from Patriots Park in helping identify the vandal. According to Chief Proctor, “The City of Kings Mountain has a great surveillance system in the park with multiple cameras strategically placed in and around the area to help monitor and

Elliot James Ziegler was arrested for vandalizing a restroom at Patriots Park. Photo courtesy Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department record activity in the park in the event an incident happens.” Surveillance systems like this are in several public parks around the city, allowing police to gain the evidence needed to aid in solving and prosecuting incidents that go undetected at the time of occurrence. That was the case last Saturday afternoon in Patriots Park. This system, along with information passed on by citizens, brought swift results. Mayor Scott Neisler explained that prior vandal-

ism resulted in the installation of cameras just outside the bathrooms and throughout the facility at Patriots Park. Repairs estimated at $1,500 are already underway. “We just want folks to know. If you do vandalism at the park, you are going to get caught,” he said. Chief Proctor said, “We rely on our ‘police citizen partnership’ to assist in making our city safe and we ask that if you are in our parks and you see something suspicious please call us and report it. If you see something, say something.” “This park was built for our citizens and visitors to use and enjoy for special events and to have a place to come and exercise or just simply to relax. We take pride in our community and those choosing to cause harm to it will be prosecuted. I want to personally thank those who assisted in this investigation. This shows that working together we can continue to make our community safer,” she said.

Veterans breakfast continues to grow at American Legion By Loretta Cozart American Legion Post 155 has served breakfast to veterans in the community the first Saturday of every month for more than a year. On Aril 6, thirty-three veterans enjoyed a made-toorder breakfast of eggs, bacon, liver mush, gravy, grits, biscuits, toast, coffee and juice. Members of three American Legion branches volunteer to take orders, deliver plates, and clean up afterward. This month, members of The American

Legion Riders took the lead, but Sons of the American Legion and Legion Auxiliary and take their turns in the upcoming months. Joel Summit, president of the Legion Riders shared, “We had a good crowd for breakfast Saturday, and everybody had a good time. Our veterans enjoy this event almost as much as the Legion Riders do.” While a free short-order breakfast always draws folks, the main pupose for this montly event is to show gratitude to Kings Mountain’s veterans by taking

time for them. Legion members chat with guests, refill beverages, and work hard letting veterans know they are appreciated. Others who want to support veterans are welcome to attend for a small donation which helps fund future breakfasts. Kings Mountain’s American Legion Post 155 host a Veteran’s breakfast the first Saturday of every month, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Otis D. Green Post home on East Gold Street. The next Veterans Breakfast is May 4.

Dowell stops traffic on the Cooper River Bridge By Loretta Cozart On Saturday, April 6, Starr Dowell stopped traffic on the Cooper River Bridge between Charleston and Mt. Pleasant, SC. in an official capacity timing the Cooper River Bridge Run, an annual run supporting local charities.

Dowell shared, “The view from the bridge was breathtaking! Very few people have ever had the opportunity to stand at the crest of the roadbed on the Cooper River Bridge with no traffic. Unfortunately, by the start of the race a very thick fog had rolled in and runners could only see the bottom portion

of the suspension cables.” More than 3,500 runners participated in this event, including Richard Hefner, Joey Strictland, Marsha McCarthy, and Nancy Beck from Cleveland County. Dowell is the secretary for the Kings Mountain Gateway Trail and does the timing for their annual run.

But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away—for it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here.

Ramey Kerns Bridges and Dan Potter. Ramey played for Potter and later served as his assistant coach at KMHS. She still assists current KMHS head coach Erik Price while also serving as head girls coach at KM Middle.

Ramey and Matt Bridges.

Record-breaking soccer star Ramey Kerns to be inducted into Kings Mountain HOF (The Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame banquet and induction ceremony will be held Sat., May 11 at 6 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church. Tickets, which include a meal, are $15 each and available at Kings Mountain High School, Paul Ingram’s Barbershop in downtown Kings Mountain, and from members of the Hall of Fame committee). When Ramey and Matt Bridges’ son is born in the next few weeks don’t be surprised if he has a baseball in his hand and a soccer ball at his feet. Bridges, now athletic director at KMHS, and Kerns, a teacher/coach at Kings Mountain Middle, were both outstanding athletes during their time in Kings Mountain and in college. Kerns is one of the best soccer players to come out of Kings Mountain and has been active in the sport since third grade. For her outstanding achievements at KMHS and East Tennessee State University she will be inducted into the Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame Saturday, May 11 at Central United Methodist Church. Kerns was the leader on a Lady Mountaineer team that won four consecutive conference championships. She went on to set numerous records at East Tennessee State where she graduated in three years. Her junior year at KMHS, the Lady Mountaineers went

undefeated until the state championship game when they lost to White Oak, a team that won four consecutive state titles. Except for her senior year when she missed considerable playing time because of an injury, Kerns had spectacular statistics and was named to every all-star team in the western end of the state. Her sophomore year she had a school record 50 goals and 30 assists – both NCHSAA records at that time. Her high school record has since been broken by Virginia Dellinger and Lindsey Deaver. During her junior season, she scored 29 goals and had 12 assists. She missed a big portion of her senior year because of a torn ACL and broken nose. She was still selected to the All-Conference and All-Charlotte Observer teams. She was All-Conference all four years and All-Region her freshman, sophomore and junior years. During her sophomore year she was also All-Observer, Conference Player of the Year and Western Regional Player of the Year. Her junior season she was All-Conference, All-Region, All-State, All-Observer and Conference Player of the Year. She also held most of the records at East Tennessee State despite playing just three years. Her freshman year she tied for first in goals with six and had one assist while making the All-Atlantic Sun team.

Her sophomore year she had three goals and three assists, made All-Atlantic Sun honorable mention, and was A-Sun Player of the Week. Her junior year, she broke the ETSU single season scoring record with 21 goals, four assists and 46 points. She led the nation in scoring, was All-Southeast Regional and NCAD Division One All-American. She led the nation in scoring with an average of 2.6 points and 1.167 goals per game, and tied for first with 21 goals. She was A-Sun Player of the Year, first team All-Conference, All-Academic and four-time Player of the Week. She is still in the ETSU record book as fifth in total points, fourth in total goals and fourth in game-winning goals. Kerns began playing soccer in the GCCSA recreation league and joined the GCCSA Cobras travel team in third grade. She played with them until the ninth grade, and then with Charlotte United Futbol through her senior year of high school. The team traveled to several cities in North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Florida. Through travel ball she was exposed to numerous colleges and they were all highly-impressed with her ability. “East Tennessee saw me in a tournament in Florida,” she recalled, “and when I

went to a soccer camp at Western Carolina several teams were there. They could see you and introduce themselves on the last day of camp. I committed to ETSU the summer going into the 11th grade. I was 15, almost 16 years old.” Kerns’ athletic ability came naturally. She is the daughter of Faye and Clyde Kerns. Her mother, the former Faye Ramey, was a standout basketball player at KMHS. After graduating ETSU, Kerns began her teaching and coaching career at Shelby Middle School in 2014. She has been at KMMS as a teacher and coach since the 2014-15 school year, and during that time she has also volunteered as an assistant for the KMHS programs. “I began coaching the middle school boys in the fall of 2014 and the girls in the spring of 2015,” she recalled. She played most of her high school career under Coach Dan Potter, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame last year and will induct Kerns into this year’s class. “I played for Coach Potter my freshman and sophomore years,” she recalled. “Before my senior year he had to step away from coaching for a while because of his motherin-law’s health situation and I played for Dara Goldstein.” Some of the other standouts on Potter’s outstanding 2010 team included Megan Loftin, Megan Reynolds, Heather Stevens, Jordan

Coach Ramey Kerns on the sidelines of a Kings Mountain soccer game. Doty, Ashley Witherspoon, Alex Edwards and Erica Moore. “About six of us went on to play college soccer,” she noted. “Reynolds and Loftin both started at Gardner-Webb and Witherspoon played at Southern Wesleyan.” Going into the Hall of Fame is humbling, she said. “It’s an honor, really, to be recognized,” she said. “I am excited but I could not have gotten it without my mom and dad and their sup-

port.” She said it is a thrill to see her first group of seventh grade girls as high school seniors. “Now I’m seeing players go from seventh and eighth grades to high school seniors and they are winners,” she said. “I’m watching them learn about the game, and seeing them win and have the same love for the game that I did. It’s good to see them giving back.”

Kings Mountain soccer still undefeated in BSC Kings Mountain High’s women’s soccer team continued their dominance of Big South 3A Conference teams last week with impressive victories over Forestview and Gastonia Ashbrook. On Wednesday, the Lady Mountaineers took a 4-1 win over Forsetview at John Gamble Stadium. Lindsey Deaver led the scoring with two goals, and she assisted another goal. Sarah Drennan had a goal and an assist. Reagan Buchanan had a goal and Hannah Clark had an assist. Baylee Marr was in goal.

“It ain’t over til it’s over,” was one of New York Yankee great Yogi Berra’s famous Yogi-isms back in his heyday. It was certainly true Wednesday night at KM’s Lancaster Field when what appeared like a 4-3 victory for the Mountaineers turned into a last inning disaster when Forestview scored nine runs to take a 12-4 lead but then had to hold off a Mountaineer rally in the bottom of the seventh for a 12-11 Big South victory. Both teams paraded 13 batters to the plate in the final frame. The Mountaineers had the bases loaded with two outs when Forestview relief pitcher Jake Lee got John Harmon Melton on a fly ball to left to end the game. Kings Mountain’s 4-3 lead appeared safe when Joe Ruffalo came on to begin the inning after Bryce Fisher had handcuffed the Jaguar batters since relieving starter Justin Cooke and shutting down a Forestview rally. The Jags had grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Jackson Harbin’s sacrifice fly, and increased it to 3-0 with two unearned runs in the top of the third. Kings Mountain battled back to trim the margin to 2-1 in the bottom of the third on an RBI single by David Bell and a bases-loaded walk to Fisher. Fisher came on to put out a bases-loaded jam in the fourth, and Bell smashed a two-run homer in the fifth to put the Mountaineers on top 4-3. That seemed comfortable until the top of the seventh, when Jake England’s single to left was followed by two errors and two walks to bring the tying run across.

The Jaguars went ahead 5-4 on a bases-loaded squeeze bunt by Jesse Osborne and that would eventually turn out to be the winning run. The Jaguars tacked on seven more runs off Ruffalo and Zach Crawford to go up 12-4 before Melton came in from centerfield to get the final out. The Mountaineers weren’t going down without a fight, though, as Boone Cartee ripped a double to left-center to open the bottom of the seventh. With runners on second and third with one out, Forestview appeared solidly in command but Melton’s fly ball to right was dropped and Cartee scored to cut the margin to 12-5. A Crawford single brought in two more runs, and a later single by Stevens cut the score to 12-8. After a walk to Silas Price loaded the bases, Forestview called Lee to the mound and he got Blake Broome hit a sacrifice fly to center for the second out, cutting the score to 12-9. Cartee’s second hit of the inning brought the score to 12-10, and Bell’s single to center accounted for the final score. For the game, the Jaguars collected only six hits with four of them coming in the seventh inning. Kings Mountain had only two hits over the first six innings, both by Bell. Cartee added two in the seventh and Crawford, Ruffalo Stevens and Bell had one apiece.

Kings Mountain jumped on Ashbrook starter Khalil DeLozier for two runs in the first inning and went on to defeat the Green Wave 5-1 in a Big South 3A Conference game Tuesday night in Gastonia. The Green Wave cut the margin to 2-1 in the fourth inning but Kings Mountain tacked on three insurance runs in the top of the seventh. Southpaw Seth Kennedy went the distance for the

Mountaineers, finishing with a three-hitter with DeLozier getting two of them. Kings Mountain collected seven hits. John Harmon Melton went 2-for-4 with two runs batted in, and Blake Broome added two hits and one RBI. Boone Cartee had a double in three trips; Bryce Fisher had a double and three RBIs in four trips, and Jaxson Bolin went 1-for-3.

While other KMHS sports were called off Friday because of wet fields, the Lady Mountaineers got their field in great playing shape and took all the bite out of the Burns Lady Bulldogs with a 12-0 victory that was called after four and one-half innings on the 10-run mercy rule. Senior Catie Payne had another strong pitching performance, limiting the Lady Bulldogs to just two hits while striking out four. Senior Jessie Oehler delivered a RBI single in the bottom of the first to get things going. Kings Mountain scored two runs in the first, three in the second and one in the third, then put up six in the bottom of the fourth to bring the mercy rule into effect.

Team members were Noah Dettloff, Connor Goodson, Triston Hannon, Anthony Huskey, Tucker Leatherman, Sam Parsons, Mark Petrilli, Aydin Roper, Ryne Smith, Tyler Smith and Jesse Yarbro. “Our team is very young compared to a number of other conference teams, so I’m looking for a few more wins next year,” said Coach Rick Henderson. “This year we had no seniors and only two juniors, and the remaining team members are sophomores and freshmen. I’m hoping we have a few incoming freshmen from the middle school to help build a

Gardner-Webb School of Education launches certification program for teacher assistants Reports of teacher shortages are published in the news on a regular basis. A recruitment website for the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, Teach4NC, notes that the state has immediate needs for teachers at all teaching levels. To address North Carolina’s need for elementary teachers, Gardner-Webb University is launching a new program beginning in Fall Semester 2019. Under the guidance of Dr. Prince Bull, dean of the School of Education, GWU is introducing “TA 2 Teacher” for qualified teacher assistants. This program is offered fully online, and includes a scholarship and other unique features for adult learners. “We know that teacher assistants are the backbone of public education,” Bull states. “They are native to the district—born,

raised and grew up there—and because of connections, they love education. For some reason, they missed an opportunity to be a certified teacher. In many districts, they serve as substitute teachers in the absence of the teacher. In some of the school districts, in the Title I schools, the teacher assistants have fouryear degrees and in some districts, even higher. The pathway for that group of folks is shorter in terms of being credentialed as a licensed teacher, and so we have developed this program to address that need.” Teacher assistants who are currently employed in a public school are eligible if they have a bachelor’s degree, associate’s degree or some college credits. A 2.5 Grade Point Average (GPA) is required for admission to Gardner-Webb. Candidates will

and to motivate the candidate to become a great teacher.” The assessors will be GWU School of Education doctoral candidates, who are principals, assistant principals and other leaders. They will be paid to assist the class professors in evaluating the students’ work and can give additional insight from their experience in the field. “The goal is to provide detailed, constructive feedback in 36 hours after an assignment is due,” Bull noted. “We know the adult learners will be anxious about going back to school and want to know how they are performing.” For more information about the “TA 2 Teacher” program, contact Donald Barringer at, 704-406-4624 or Dr. Prince Hycy Bull at, 704-406-4402.

need a 3.0 GPA to be admitted to the teacher education program and maintain a 3.0 throughout their course of study. The tuition rate for qualified candidates will be reduced by $100 per credit hour for a total scholarship of up to $8,000. The program’s unique feature is its support system for students. In addition to the course instructor, each candidate will have a school district mentor, an assessor and an advisor. The school district mentor will be a licensed, experienced teacher, who has been evaluated at the proficient level and is National Board Certified. “Gardner-Webb is going to pay the mentors a stipend,” Bull explained. “The mentor stays with the teacher candidate for the duration of the program. The role of the mentor is to translate theory to practice

Cinderella ballet performance at Joy Theatre May 17-19 By Loretta Cozart

Fourth grader Aubri Adams was Principal for the Day on Friday, April 5th, at North Elementary School. Aubri helped with awards day, a “candlelit lunch” AR rewards, ice cream social, delivering snacks to kindergarten classes, and making announcements at the end of the day. Aubri earned this privilege by selling the most cookie dough for the school fundraiser. The staff at North Elementary is proud of Aubri’s leadership. Photo provided by Anna Hughes

City with a Heart

BC Receives an Additional $1,000,000 in Grants!!! BC receives additional One Million in grants

Pictured: City Council and Mayor Becky S. Smith at April 2019 regular council meeting Grant Fund Presentation. Photos by Josh Ross

The city has received two important grants from the state this past year. The North Carolina Neighborhood Revitalization Grant (CDBG) and The Department of Environmental Quality Water/ Sewer Line Asset Inventory and Assesment grant. The CDBG is a $750,000 grant that will help revital-

ize homes in the neighborhood south of the Osage Mill. Many homes in this area were built in the early 1900s and are in need of repair. This grant is for homes and residents who meet the required income and housing needs. The DEQ grant is for a new comprehensive asset management program for the

city that will allow public works personnel to locate waterlines and sewerlines in the area. The City of Bessemer City intends to develop asset inventories, and other components for the water/sewer system. Both grants amount to over $1 million in state funds at no cost to the city or tax payers.

BC Parks hashas it’s its First Amazing Race!!! BC Parksand andRecreation Recreation first Amazing Race Bessemer City had its first official Amazing Race on March 30th to increase physical activity. The race started at the Allan Farris Community Center and ended at the Family Pizzagalli. The walk was two miles with multiple pit stops. 13 teams competed

for bragging rights by completing multiple tasks at each pit stop. After each task was completed the team would receive a clue that would guide them to their next pit stop. The City plans to host more events that promote physical activity in the community! 3LFWXUHG$PD]LQJUDFHSDUWLFLSDQWVSUHSDUHIRUWKHWZRPLOHHYHQWDWWKHRSHQLQJFHUHPRQ\KRVWHGE\0D\RU%HFN\66PLWK3KRWRV Pictured: Amazing race participants prepare for the two mile event at the opening ceremony hosted by Mayor Becky S.
