City clarifies E5 Holdings buys land across purchase of from casino for $685,000 land in 2015 By Loretta Cozart

By Loretta Cozart Last week, the Herald reported on two parcels of land purchased by the City MARILYN SELLERS of Kings Mountain in 2015 in order to provide utilities to NTE Energy, now known as Carolina Power Partners, LLC. Documentation provided by City of Kings Mountain shows the city billed NTE

Energy, and NTE Energy paid the city a month later and before the property switched hands. In a phone call with Kings Mountain City Manager Marilyn Sellers on Monday, July 20, Sellers explained the transaction saying, “We had an agreement with NTE that the city would purchase the property and they (NTE) would, in turn, reimburse us. What happened was that it became a pass through. A payment was received by the city from NTE, and we See CITY, Page 4

Kings Mountain casino area land, purchased in June, has been in buying process since 2018. A Memorandum of Option Contract to purchase the land was obtained by CHT Enterprises, LLC on November 21, 2018. In May of 2020, CHT Enterprises, LLC became the managing member of E5 Holdings, LLC, along with members Eddie Holbrook, Stuart Legrand, and Douglas Brown. Together, members of E5 Holdings, LLC purchased the property on June 2 for approximately $685,000, according to the excise tax noted on the deed. The document was filed with the Cleveland County Register of

Deeds office on June 11. E5 Holdings, LLC was incorporated in Nevada on May 12, 2020. The Managing Member of E5 Holdings, LLC is CHT Enterprises, LLC that incorporated in Delaware on Feb. 12, 1996. Its entity name is Kings Mountain Land Development Partners II, LLC. The company’s 2020 Annual Report is signed by Trent Testa and the electronic signature on that report is Gene Harris, as manager. The corporation is listed as a Close Company in Delaware, meaning it “cannot sell stock shares publicly under Title 8, Subchapter XIV, Subchapter 341”. Essentially, CHT Enterprises, LLC acts a shell corporation for Kings Mountain Land Development

Partners II, LLC. One of the principal’s addresses listed for CHT Enterprises, LLC is 19211 Youngblood Road West, Charlotte, NC, 28278. That is the home address of Trent Testa. The businesses’ annual report also lists Post Office Box 846 in Kings Mountain, NC, which belongs to Roadside Truck Plaza of Kings Mountain, also owned by Testa. On November 21, 2018, CHT Enterprises, LLC signed a Memorandum of Option Contract with the Hagan Family, LLC, giving the corporation one-year plus 90-days to purchase land at 245 Dixon School Road. However, the document was not filed with Cleveland County Register of

Deeds office until March 12, 2019. One-year and 90 days from the date of filing would be June 11, 2020. When CHT Enterprises, LLC’s Memorandum of Option Contract was signed, Eddie Holbrook was serving his final weeks as Chairman of the Cleveland County Commission and his term of office did not expire until Dec. 3, 2018.

Planning and Zoning Board meets

Board recommends City Council NC K-12 public approve 2 rezoning requests schools require safety measures to re-open

G o v ernor Roy Cooper and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC ROY COOPER DHHS) Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen were joined today by education and health leaders to announce health and safety plans for K-12 public schools for the new school year. Schools will open for in-person instruction under an updated Plan B that requires face coverings for all

K-12 students, fewer children in the classroom, measures to ensure social distancing for everyone in the building, and other safety protocols. “The most important opening is that of our classroom doors. Our schools provide more than academics; they are vital to our children’s’ health, safety and emotional development,” said Governor Cooper. “This is a difficult time for families with hard choices on every side. I am committed to working together to ensure our students and educators are as safe as possible and that children have opportunities to learn in the way that is best for them and their families.” See SCHOOLS, Page 4

New dates and new virtual component

Real to Reel Film Festival By Violet Arth

The Cleveland County Arts Council is excited to begin another decade of offering amazing cinema to film festival goers. Originally slated for the end of July, this year, the 21st annual International Real to Reel Film Fest has been rescheduled for September 9-12 at the Joy Performance Theatre in Kings Mountain.

Although the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been felt by filmmakers, event planners, and venues around the world, Real to Reel organizers are

hoping the delayed dates and a new virtual companion component will expand the outreach and preparation time for this exploration of international film. “Postponing the festival was not a decision we took lightly but one we felt was best for everyone, and it gave us the opportunity to add a virtual component. We are excited to work with Seed and Spark to bring

Real to Reel Film Festival into the virtual festival space via their platform,” commented Festival Director Violet Dukes. More details are forthcoming in regard to this online element of screenings. The selection committee screened nearly 150 film submissions, from amateur and professional filmmakers, including animated See FILM, Page 4

Uniquetex produces high quality PPE’s in Grover When coronavirus first started spreading in early this year, a manufacturer in Grover, North Carolina sprang into action. Uniquetex, LLC is a non-woven fabric manufacturer founded in 2016. Its joint investors are Foshan Nanhai Beautiful Non-woven Company Limited and Wenzhou Chaolong Textile Machinery Co., Ltd., which are both based in China. In its 360,000 square feet facility, Uniquetex has two modern non-woven production lines which mainly produce products widely used in medical, Hygiene, industrial and construction fields. As the pandemic became an increasing threat, the company realized how critical and necessary it was to produce high quality PPE locally. As a result, Unquetex’s sister company Ecoguard, Inc. was formed in February, with only one mission and that was to produce face masks. Immediately, Ecoguard set up

26 mask-making machines, hired nearly 80 employees locally, and produced over 30 million masks within four months. Not only was Ecoguard able to supply masks across the country when shortages were at their most urgent, it also was able to donate tens of thousands of masks to the state governments of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Kentucky, as well as local small businesses and non-profit organizations. Both Uniquetex and Ecoguard continue to provide high quality PPE during the coronavirus pandemic. As they respond the increasing demand for PPE’s, they will create more job opportunities in the local community.

Memorandum of Option Contract, E5 Holdings, LLC, not CHT Enterprises, LLC purchased the property and filed the deed on the property at 245 Dixon School Road with Cleveland County Register of Deeds office on June 11. Bordering that 22.46 acre parcel are two others that were discussed at Kings Mountain city council last month, one owned by City of Kings Mountain in the amount of 17.11 acres, for which E5 Holdings, LLC petitioned the city to open the parcel for upset bid for $150,000 at the June 30 city council meeting. An upset bid for $175,000 was submitted to the City of Kings Mountain last week and may be discussed at the July 28 city council meeting. Timing of that discussion depends upon additional upset bids being submitted. The second 6.5 acre parcel is owned by Trent Testa under the name of Roadside Truck Plaza. Com-

bined, these three properties would equal 46-acres. During the June 30 City of Kings Mountain city council meeting, both E5 Holdings, LLC and Roadside Truck Plaza petitioned the city to rezone their property from light industrial to general business. That decision will be made by city council during their July 28 meeting at City Hall. While E5 Holdings, LLC did not sign the Memorandum of Option Contract to purchase the land on Dixon School Road in November 2018, records show that CHT Enterprises, LLC did. And CHT Enterprises, LLC is the managing member of E5 Holdings, LLC that includes Jim Testa, Eddie Holbrook, Stuart Legrand, and Douglas Brown. Together, they purchased the property under the name of their limited liability corporation, E5 Holdings, LLC.

SCHOOLS From Page 1 The Strong Schools NC Public Health Toolkit outlines the updated requirements for Plan B. Districts may choose to operate under Plan C, which calls for remote learning only, and health leaders recommend schools allow families to opt into all-remote learning. Modifications have been made to Plan B since it was released in June to make it more protective of public health. “After looking at the current scientific evidence and weighing the risks and benefits, we have decided to move forward with today’s balanced, flexible approach which allows for in-person instruction as long as key safety requirements are in place in addition to remote learning options.” said NCDHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen, MD. “We will continue to follow the science and data and update recommendations as needed. We ask every North Carolinian to do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and follow the three W’s: Wear a face covering when in public, Wait 6 feet apart, Wash your hands.” Governor Cooper also announced that the state will provide at least five reusable face coverings for every student, teacher and school staff member in public schools. In June, the state provided packs of personal protective equipment to schools that included a two-month supply of thermometers, surgical masks, face shields and gowns for school nurses and delegated staff who provide health care to students. “Educators and stakeholders across our state have worked tirelessly to reopen our school buildings safely for our students, teachers and staff. Today, we take another critical step towards that goal. We also know families need to choose the option that is best for their children, so all school districts will provide remote learning options,” said Eric Davis, Chairman of the State Board of Education. “In-person education is important for children, and

it happens in the context of a community. This plan strikes the right balance between health and safety and the benefits of having children learn in the classroom. We must all continue with proven measures to reduce COVID-19 transmission like wearing a face covering, keeping distance between people, and frequent hand and surface cleanings so we can move closer to safely re-opening public schools,” said Dr. Theresa Flynn, M.D., M.P.H., FAAP, a practicing pediatrician who serves on the Board of Directors for the North Carolina Pediatric Society and joined today’s announcement. Under Plan B, schools are required to follow key safety measures that include: • Require face coverings for all teachers and students K-12 • Limit the total number of students, staff and visitors within a school building to the extent necessary to ensure 6 feet distance can be maintained when students/staff will be stationary • Conduct symptom screening, including temperature checks • Establish a process and dedicated space for people who are ill to isolate and have transportation plans for ill students • Clean and disinfect hightouch surfaces in the school and transportation vehicles regularly • Require frequent hand washing throughout the school day and provide hand sanitizer at entrances and in every classroom • Discontinue activities that bring together large groups • Limit nonessential visitors and activities involving external groups • Discontinue use of self-service food or beverage distribution In addition, schools are strongly recommended to follow additional safety measures that include: • Designate hallways and entrance/exit doors as one-way • Keep students and teachers in small groups that stay together as much as possible • Have meals delivered to the classroom or have students bring food back to the classroom if social distancing is not

possible in the cafeteria • Discontinue activities that bring together large groups • Place physical barriers such as plexiglass at reception desks and similar areas More details can be found in the Strong Schools NC Public Health Toolkit. Read the Screening Reference Guide for schools and the Infection Control and PPE Guidance. In addition to the announcement about school plans, Governor Cooper shared that North Carolina will remain paused in Safer at Home Phase 2 after the current Executive Order expires on Friday, July 17. “As we continue to see rising case numbers and hospitalizations, we will stay in Safer at Home Phase 2 for three more weeks,” said Governor Cooper. “Our re-opening priority is the school building doors, and in order for that to happen we have to work to stabilize our virus trends.” “While all school re-entry plans have their challenges during this pandemic, our superintendents, principals, and other school leaders will continue to prioritize student and staff safety in reopening schools under the cautious parameters outlined today by the Governor,” said North Carolina Association of School Administrators Executive Director Katherine Joyce. “We look forward to continuing work with the Governor, the General Assembly, and other state leaders to ensure our schools have the support needed to get student learning back on track in the safest manner possible in each local district.” “I recognize Governor Cooper faced a very difficult decision. The good news is that local school boards can now begin to officially put their school reopening plans in motion,” said Brenda Stephens, President of the North Carolina School Board Association. “While the current situation may not be ideal for all, I’m confident North Carolina’s educators will continue to provide students with the best education possible.

man Lawing explained, “It should not impact taxes or zoning at this time.” Howze then asked for clarification and Chairman Lawing assured him, “The only parcels impacted are the two parcels we discussed.” Pricilla Dunlap of Tin Mine Road spoke next, questioning Chairman Lawing’s response to Howze’s, using the phrase, “… at this time.” Lawing explained, “Cities cannot annex properties in the ETJ unless the property owners request annexation.” Board member Renee Bost made the motion to delay the rezoning decision on both properties until next month. Chairman Doug Lawing explained to the board

that if nobody seconded the motion, it would fail. He then asked for a second and a second was not given, so the motion did not carry. Board member Maury Williams made a motion to recommend approval of both zoning requests and the board voted 10 – 1 in favor of the motion. Board member Renee Bost cast the dissenting vote. A motion was then made by board member Ron Humphries to send the recommendations to approve both requests on to city council for both the Testa and E5 Holdings, LLC properties, and the board voted 10 – 1 in favor of the motion. Board member Renee Bost cast the dissenting vote.

FILM From Page 1 shorts, live-action shorts, documentaries (shorts and feature-length), feature-length narrative films, and films made by children ages 14 years and younger. International countries of origin for submissions include India, Japan, Iran, Russia, and Slovakia, among others. The festival will screen approximately 16 hours of runtime (30+ films) based on the selections made by the committee, (selections are still being finalized). “This year, I’m particularly energized by the virtual/companion component of the festival. We’ll be able to introduce an entirely new audience (outside of our geographic area) to this long-standing festival,” says Noel Manning, co-founder of Real to Reel and tenured

member of the film selection committee. Awards categories will be classified by their student/amateur or professional submission status. This year especially will bring some unique and exciting virtual components to the Real to Reel Film Festival, notably for online audiences. The virtual aspect will allow audiences to catch films they may be unable to see in person (or that they may want to view again). Tickets will be sold to stream the films online through Seed and Spark. Several filmmaker interviews conducted via Zoom will be available online for general viewing in the weeks leading up to the September festival. Additionally, for the on-site portion of the festival in September, pre-recorded filmmaker Q&A sessions will be made available to audiences. As in years past, audience members can expect live in-person filmmaker Q&A panels as well.

Last year’s Real to Reel Film Festival saw an attendance of approximately 300 people. “While this year’s festival will certainly have a different feel, we’re excited to once again bring diverse, educational and entertaining independent films to our community and beyond,” said Shearra Miller, President of the Cleveland County Arts Council. For more information about this year’s festival, contact Violet Dukes at the Cleveland County Arts Council by email or phone 704-484-2787. You can also visit the film festival website at The mission of the Real to Reel International Film Festival is to offer a forum for independent film, video and multimedia artists from around the world to showcase their talents and expose the works of these artists to our region.

& ALL MAJOR BRANDS The deed was executed on September 1, 2015 by Atty. Neisler and recorded with the Register of Deeds office on September 3, 2015. Sellers explained the upset bid process. “Anytime we get a bid on a property, we, as staff, in turn put that on the council agenda to let them know we received a bid,” she said. “When we accept the bid, it starts the process. And, we don’t have to accept it (the bid) after a month. That’s up to council.”

“As for the property having no value, ‘of no use’ would be a better term,” Sellers said. “We looked at several options for the property and decided it was of no use to us. We purchased the 17.11 acre parcel for $69,723.25. We did have the property appraised at $125,000 and we got a bid for $150,000. We are hoping for higher offers and the first bid starts the process. It is up to council and, in the end, they may decide they don’t want to sell it.”

Pass The Test (Part 3 of the “Power of Faith” series) Have you ever asked, “When are things going to change God? This is taking too long!” I sure have. Then God answers, “When you change!” We are looking at the external and God is looking at the internal. DANYALE PATTERSON He wants to work in us and through us, but we want him to work for us. Although God is concerned about every aspect of our lives, he will not neglect the important work of developing us into spiritually mature disciples of Christ. James 1:2-4 states, “Consider it pure joy my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” 5 FAITH EXERCISES 1. Revisit the faith and prayer victories of the past.

No matter what is going on in your life, the devil cannot steal the testimony of what God has already done. Praise and thank God for the miracles and answered prayers that you have experienced through the years. Psalm 103:2 says, “With all my heart I praise the LORD! I will never forget how kind he has been.” 2. Pray in the Holy Spirit. We do not always know what to say or how to pray. We need the Holy Spirit to help us to pray effectively. “But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Ghost.” - Jude 1:20 3. Saturate yourself in praise and worship music. Focusing on the attributes of God and worshiping him will engage God’s presence. “But you are holy, O’ you that inhabit the praises of Israel.” - Psalm 22:3 4. Couple prayer with fasting - because sometimes prayer alone is not enough. Fasting must be paired with prayer, because of the intensity of the spiritual warfare. “But an evil spirit of this kind is only driven out by prayer and fasting.” - Mathew 17:21 5. Put scripture before you constantly. Write the

Page 5 promises of God on index cards and place these scriptures all over the house so you can continually remember the promises of God. “Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds…Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates…” - Deuteronomy 11:18, 20 PRAY THIS PRAYER: “Father, sometimes I am disappointed, discouraged, and tired of waiting for my prayers to be answered. Forgive me for complaining and being impatient. Thank you for everything you have already done for me. I ask you to strengthen me when I feel weak. Lord, I come to drink from your Spirit, eat from your Word, and receive refreshing for my soul. Help me to trust you despite the difficult circumstances. May I be rooted and built up in you, established in the faith, and overflowing with thankfulness. In Jesus’ name - Amen.” Danyale Patterson is co-founder of Enlighten Ministries, a 501c3 organization with her husband Brandon Patterson.

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” – Matthew 22:36-40

A Fresh Look, art competition Library presents Chicago: True Stories of the 1920s winners announced virtually By Jewel Reavis, Exhibits Chair Southern Arts Society announced winners virtually last week for A FRESH LOOK art competition now on view through August 14. Thirty-six artists from around the region entered ninety-three pieces of art in a variety of media to be judged for cash prizes. Artists were asked to show their most recent work taking a fresh look at the world around them – a very appropriate theme for these trying times. Though life may be unsettling, much of the work in the show still focuses on the bright colors of summer, heartwarming themes of family and fun, and the sanctuary found in the outdoors. Judging the show was Felicia van Bork. Born in Toronto, Canada, van Bork completed her undergraduate studies at the Ontario College of Art and Design University and earned her MFA at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design at the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, MA. The artist's paintings and collages are widely collected in the United States and Canada and Felicia has been the recipient of numerous residency fellowships, including from the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and McColl Center for Art + Innovation, where she manages the printmaking studio. In the summer of 2017, she was a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome. Van Bork’s collage, How to Mine the Past, is in the permanent collection of the Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte, NC. Van Bork had the difficult task of selecting winners from this year’s competition. Commenting on the show overall Van Bork said, “on my first walk-through of the exhibition, A Fresh Look 2020, I knew immediately that I would find plenty of technical proficiency. Among the over 90 works in the show, many show professional ability. There is also wit, originality, risk-taking, and soul. Congratulations to the artists and many thanks for their terrific work.”

Frosty Morn (watercolor) by Shelby Sabelli. Photo provided Van Bork selected first, second and third place prizes along with three merit awards. Here are the winners with Van Bork’s comments. First Place went to Lore Spivey for all three of her entries as a grouping: Maurits, Piet and Keeping it Together. “The artist books of Lore Spivey, especially the book, Keeping it Together, have the quality of artworks made by an artist for her own delight. There is no sense of any ponderous effort to be impressive, yet these small works communicate technical skill, playfulness and artistic maturity. It is one thing to make a fine pictorial composition and another to make an interactive object that generates a different beautiful composition with every turn of its varied, perforated pages.” “While there is variety, there is no chaos. Rather, the materials, colors and textures present a limited palette with which the artist amuses her own astute eye. The cumulative effect is of a stroll through a cleverly designed building where each turn of a corner generates another pleasing aspect. The other two books, Piet and Maurits, are delightful tributes to Piet Mondrian and Maurits Cornelis Escher. How nice to see an artist doing riffs on greats from art history and literally getting inside their thinking.” Second Place went to Barbara O’Neal Davis Narrow Passage. “What struck me particularly about the acrylic paintings of Barbara O’Neal Davis,

and in particular the painting, Narrow Passage, was the very different impressions given by the works viewed from up close and far away. From nearby, the colorful palette and intriguing textures attracted me, as did the contrast of the raw fineline drawing to the bold flat shapes of color. The painting has a collage-like quality. (I have done a lot of collage myself and hold the form to a high standard.) The wow factor of Narrow Passage, however, lies in the way the painting generates an engaging illusion of an imaginary three-dimensional landscape. The successful use of atmospheric perspective really becomes apparent when the viewer is standing 10-feet away.” Third Place went to Timmy Hord for Floral Beauty a clay sculpture. “This is one of those amazing pieces that should not work. There is too much variety: there are too many different kinds of marks, shapes and colors for a coherent impression. In this piece it is the impossible, precarious balance of elements which makes the fact that Floral Beauty does work, so exciting. Just step back and you will see it. The icing on the cake is that it works from all sides. And although the piece has numerous visual textures, it does not have too many parts. The artist could have attached bud- or leaf-like structures, but instead she left the form relatively simple and abstract, trusting the imagination of the audience to fill in the rest.” Merit Awards went to Lori McAdams for her scratchboard and ink piece The Little Barista; to Shelby Sabelli for her watercolor painting Frosty Morning, and to C.M. Kakassy for her acrylic painting Early Morning. A FRESH LOOK will be on display in the galleries of Southern Arts Society through August 14. Visitors are asked to wear a mask and practice social distancing.

DAR celebrates Christmas in July By Loretta Cozart C o l . Frederick DAR Chapter is celebrating Christmas in July, reminding citizens of their Wreaths Across America event on December 19, 2020 and asking supporters to purchase wreaths to honor 1,200-plus veterans buried at Mountain Rest Cemetery. This is the third year the DAR chapter has participated in this event. The first year they sponsored veterans at Arlington National Cemetery. Two years ago they adopted Mountain Rest Cemetery and encourage other non-profits to join them in honoring local patriots buried there. For the next six months the DAR will be taking donations for wreaths to be placed this December. Members of the community who have veteran members of their family buried at Mountain Rest Cemetery may sponsor a wreath for the cost of $15.00. You may also sponsor a wreath by sending a check made out to the Col. Frederick Hambright Chapter DAR to 131 Wright Rd., in Kings Mountain, NC 28086. Be sure to enclose a note if the wreath is to be placed on a specific grave. Each year, millions of Americans come together to REMEMBER the fallen, HONOR those that serve and their families, and TEACH the next generation about

the value of freedom. This gathering of volunteers and patriots takes place in local and national cemeteries in all 50 states - most recently at more than 2,000 participating locations - as part of National Wreaths Across America Day. This year, National Wreaths Across America Day is Saturday, December 19. It is always a free event and open to all people. For more information on how to volunteer locally or sponsor a wreath for a hero, please visit Wreaths Across Amer-

ica is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery begun by Maine businessman Morrill Worcester in 1992. The organization’s mission – Remember, Honor, Teach – is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies in December at Arlington, as well as at thousands of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.

NCHSAA delays start of fall practice to September 1, Kings Mountain High still hopes to get in full seasons can go to stage 3 soon.” Most KMHS fall sports have been working out for a couple of weeks. The football team works out Monday through Thursday mornings; soccer, cross country and volleyball are working out a couple days a week and tennis will begin soon. “All of the teams have to have social distancing,” he noted. “They can’t hit or share equipment or anything. They can use balls but two people can’t touch the same ball. Getting to stage 3 is really important.” Bridges said because of the uncertainty about the beginning of the sports year, the high school is not yet selling passes. “Once we know for sure what the situation looks like, we will adjust the prices of all of our sports passes, reserved seating and parking and let the public know about it,” he said.

Don’t let a federally-indicted South Carolina

casino developer take

advantage of North Carolina. South Carolina alrea ady rejected this casino. Now, a Soutth Carolina casino developer who haa d o n ce been in n dicted for ope e ratin n g an n illegal gambling business, an nd whose companies have left beh hind a trail of lawsuits, is trying g to imp pose this casino on us. This caasino projject is a loser for North Caarolina: • It will line de evelop pers’pockets and leave nearby communities stuck with inccreassed traffi fficc an nd law enforceme ent exp penses. • It’s the prroduct of a shady deal that could open the e fl flo oodgaatess to more unwaanted gam ming accross the statte. • It will siphon millions in critiical revenu ue from Norr th Carollina comm munities and send it out of statte.

Tell the Kings Mountain City Council to oppose this dangerous casino project.

A casino deal for a federally indicted developer is a losing bet. Paid for by DefendNC
