Trackview Hall Event Center is now open for business By Loretta Cozart

By Loretta Cozart The Kings Mountain Herald has learned that a Biscuitville and an A&W Restaurant are in the works for Kings Mountain, but neither restaurant shared a timeline for breaking ground. Biscuitville is a privately held regional fast-food restaurant chain consisting of 62 locations in North Carolina and Virginia. The restaurant specializes in breakfast food and Southern cuisine. All biscuits served at Biscuitville restaurants

are made from scratch "hot every 15 minutes." The chain plans to build the new restaurant beside Burger King on York Road. A&W Restaurants, based in Lexington, Kentucky, announced last week that three new restaurants would be built locally. The Herald learned that the A&W Restaurant in Kings Mountain will be built closer to Catawba Two Kings Casino.

Equus Partners received approval for 300,000 sq. ft. shell building and financial incentives By Loretta Cozart During last month’s city council meeting, Equus Partners received approval from Kings Mountain City council to construct a 300,000 sq. ft. shell building and to provide financial incentives for Project Joe. The item had been continued from the May City Council meeting. Planning Director Stuart Gilbert shared some background on the project, reminding City council that in March 2020 Council approved a spec building on the site with financial incentives. In the interim, a new economic develop-

ment policy was put into place. “The former project was for a manufacturing building, but the new project is for a warehouse/ distribution center. City council’s approval allows Equus Partners to receive financial incentives in either case,” Gilbert said. Tom Johnson, attorney for Equus Partners spoke in favor of the project and thanked City council for considering the request. Councilman Allen made the motion to approve a developer agreement to construct the 300,000 sq. ft. shell building and provide financial incentives. City council voted unanimously to approve. The closest access point to the property is from Sara Lee Access Road near Hanes Brands.

Shane and Sherryl Adams announce the opening of Trackview Hall Event Center, a venue at 205 S. Battleground Avenue in downtown Kings Mountain. The 5,000 sq. ft. facility has been completely transformed from the consignment shop that once occupied the space into a modern facility that can be used for weddings, receptions, or corporate events. New bathrooms have been installed, along with a bride’s room, and a modern prep kitchen. The space is accessible from the Battleground Avenue and has plenty of parking available in the Cherokee Street

OPINION

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

TODAY’S QUOTE:

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without – Helen Keller hope and confidence.

Pieces of Kings Mountain History Kings Mountain is changing right before our eyes. While the casino gets LORETTA most of the COZART credit for that change, the change cannot all be due to a facility located four miles away from downtown that has only been open a month. Yes, the casino has drawn people to the area, but not necessarily into town. Its proximity to I-85 negates the need to drive into the city. So other factors must have contributed to recent growth. Downtown began experiencing slow transformation between 2016 2019, but COVID slowed that progress. Nonetheless, several restaurants like 133 West still opened during the pandemic and locals supported them by ordering take-out and being aware that restaurants needed the support of citizens to survive. Now, after the many COVID restrictions have eased, people are flocking to restaurants and supporting them. Local realtor, Chris Jolly pointed out recently, “There was a time in recent memory when you could walk down Railroad Avenue at lunchtime and only see one or two people. Now, it is hard to find a place to park downtown at lunchtime. 238 Cherokee Grill does a brisk business; it is always busy.” But restaurants aren’t the only reason downtown

has become busy. Shane and Sherryl Adams just opened Trackview Hall, an event venue at 205 S. Battleground Avenue in what was once Ditto Consignment. Oldtimers, will remember Belk’s being at that location in the 70s. A few events have already been held at Trackview Hall, even before the owners could hold an official open house. That is a good sign that the community wants and needs a facility like this downtown. In the upcoming months, the downtown streetscape work will continue. The sewer work has been completed and City Manager Marilyn Sellers told city council last month, “Infrastructure is complete, except for electrical for new lighting. Free Wi-fi is being installed. And as soon as we get DOT approval, we’ll go out for bids on the project. Those contracts will set the schedule. We are hoping for completion in the fall.” If you have not seen the streetscape plans, they are on display in the lobby of City Hall. The city has invested significantly to create a clean modern feel to downtown. There will be new sidewalks on Battleground Avenue and Mountain Streets. Lighting throughout downtown will make it a welcoming place and the hope is that entrepreneurs like Iris Hubbard, Michael Parker, Gregg Johnson, Rob Bolin, David Brin-

kley, John McGill and others we haven’t met yet will see the potential the downtown has to offer so people move there to live, work, and play. It is an ambitious undertaking, but with everyone working together to a common end it can be successful. Next year, the plan is to continue that work on Railroad Avenue. Change is inevitable, but a necessary thing so our community can continue to grow. Planning for that growth ensures that the community grows in ways citizens want to see. Patriots Park is a good example of planning that benefits and entire community and brings people together. Frank Parmater, a resident of Kings Mountain in the 1970s, visited town during the last Concert and Cruise-in. He commented, “I cannot believe the transformation that has occurred here in the last five years. Concerts in the park draw the community out to enjoy a summer evening of music. The music is fantastic and certainly draws a diverse crowd. I can’t believe how many people are out here!” The folks at Kings Mountain Special Events and Main Street have done a fantastic job, no doubt. They should be commended. The variety of music offered throughout the summer appeals to a broad demographic. It is clear they’ve worked hard to include all music genres over the course of the summer. Adding the

Looking Back

While this old black and white image of the Mountain View Hotel doesn’t provide much detail, it provides an unobstructed image. In the December 14, 1947 Kings Mountain Herald, the Cash brothers announced that the property was sold by DuCourt Mills, Inc. to David E. and Charles E. Cash. The article also notes that the Cash brothers had intended to construct their planned theater one block to the north on Railroad Avenue, on an adjoining lot of R&M Motors. The Mountain View Hotel lot fronted Railroad Avenue and was 100 feet wide, with 210 feet on Mountain Street. The new theater, built on the corner, would occupy 54 feet by 134 feet. As best as the Herald staff knew, the Mountain View Hotel was 70-years

old, having been converted to a hotel from two old store buildings in 1876 and 1877. It was operated by the Misses Agnes and Emma Norris as a hotel for 36 years and enjoyed a wide reputation for hospitality and food. It was sold at auction by the Misses Norris in 1936 to W.K. Mauney and L. Arnold Kiser for $13,820 and then sold by them to David L. Saunders at an announced purchase price of $17,000. P.D. Herndon purchased the property from Mr. Saunders in 1946 and sold it to DuCourt Mills, Inc. in September 1946. The figure most prominently mentioned in that sale was $24,000. For several years, the hotel was under the management of Mr. and Mrs. Hal Ward, who built a home on Mountain Street.

car show to the concert series was also a wise move. Cars fill the streets and people come out to see them. Hopefully, events like this positively impact local merchants, so keep them in mind when you plan your next outing during the NC Beach Blast Festival on August 21. While downtown sees the most impact from events downtown, other businesses benefit as well. Local hotels offer guests who dance into the night at Liberty Falls Amphitheater a place to sleep. Gas stations and local eateries also benefit. Occupancy taxes contribute to tourism dollars which are shared across the commu-

nity in different ways. It is easy to say we don’t like change, but change is inevitable. Our founding fathers embraced change as opportunity. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t have moved here to open stores, mills, banks, restaurants, and schools in 1874. We should embrace change as opportunity, too. If we hide our heads in the sand, opportunity will pass us by and there is no getting it back once the opportunity passes. Kings Mountain’s gold rush was a fleeting opportunity a century ago, but a lot of people made fortunes from it. Others opened stores to supply the materials people

needed to build homes and businesses. Andrew and Jacob Mauney were such men. They never stopped looking for opportunity, opening mills and a bank. New entrepreneurs are moving to town now. And they will leave their marks on the next incarnation of Kings Mountain. They will do it one business at a time, meeting the needs of the citizens as they watch the town prosper. Where will you be? Hiding your head in the sand or looking for opportunities as they become available. That decision alone makes all the difference in the world.

Wanting too many ‘things; a fast track to turmoil A happy and secure life does not mean immediate gratifiGlenn Mollette cation. Guest Editorial We have heard these words before, “I want it all and I want it now.” Wanting the things of life as quickly as possible is natural. Some climb the career ladder quickly achieving epic heights at young ages. Many burn the candle at both ends in order to have the biggest house the finance company will allow. Some want to have a certain number of children by a certain age along with a mega career, housing, cars and all that a segment of society considers successful. However, is your mental sanity worth the stress of all that it usually takes to get as much and as fast as you can? The common consensus by many is, “I don’t want

to wait until I’m old to have a nice house.” Or, “I don’t want to wait to enjoy the finer things of life.” An old acquaintance bought an expensive house in California a few years back and remarked, “I couldn’t wait to get into that incredible house and then I couldn’t wait until we sold it.” Another friend remarked, “The greatest day in my life was when I bought my boat and the second greatest day was when I sold it.” Our view of life’s wants and needs change throughout life. We look at some things as if we can’t live until we get them. After a while we realize life was simpler and more manageable before we had them. Consider pacing yourself. Remember this word as much as possible – afford. Try to buy, drive, and live with the ‘afford’ word as your ongoing theme. If you can’t afford it, you certainly don’t need it, whatever it is. Don’t overbuy on your house. Buy what you can

afford now and maybe soon you can sell and buy greater. If you are living beyond what you can afford you will end up losing ground. Getting behind with making payments on property or having to file bankruptcy will only put the things you want out of reach. Destroying your credit rating only dismantles what you will want to buy next. So, take your time. Trying to spend more and buy more than you can afford does not make you a greater person in anyone’s minds or eyes. Keep in mind that it’s your life and there’s nothing better than living life with peace of mind. If you can be comfortable, eat well and have a good daily life of health then what more do you really want? If you want more, then take your time, do good and more will probably become available to you. The wisdom writer of Proverbs said in 15:16, “Better a little with fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil.” Kings Mountain Herald’s publisher and its advertisers are not responsible or liable for misprints, typographical errors, misinformation herein contained.

Bipartisan senators reintroduce legislation for seniors’ access to medical innovations

The Bride’s Room is comfortably appointed with plenty of room to get ready and has two mirrors and a sink, with additional hooks for dresses, and mirrors throughout the room for the bridal party to prepare for the wedding.

saved the couple money in the long run. “Even so, I spent many 60-hour weeks down here getting this place ready. We continue to do work to improve the space and recently added an industrial refrigerator and ice machine.” “We have a maximum capacity of 273, but the space gives us flexibility. In our current setup, we have seating for 94 on the right side and seating for 96 at the round tables. We can

divide the space with curtains and once the wedding is complete, add additional tables in the space where guests had just sat and observed the ceremony.” The space is tastefully decorated, with modern touches.

installed, and crystal chandeliers adorn the ceiling. The metal poles have been sheathed in wood which are also accented with lights. “We are also going to add optional brighter lighting, should a company hold a corporate meeting here need brighter lighting so folks can take notes,” Shane added. When asked what he planned to do now that this facility is nearly complete, Shane said, “I’ve got a lot of work to catch-up on now, from my other businesses to my barn, there’s always something to do.” “We’ve had several events here already,” Sherryl said. “We been so busy, we haven’t had time for an open house. But we do plan to have one so the community can come to see the transformation. We’ll be sure to announce it, so everyone knows.” For more information, contact Trackview Hall. com or call 704-259-5806.

On July 21, Senators Richard Burr (R-NC), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Tom Carper (D-DE), and Tim Scott (R-SC) reintroduced the New Opportunities for Value to Extend Lives (NOVEL) Act. This bipartisan legislation would update coding, coverage, and payment processes at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to improve seniors’ access to life-saving medical innovations. “The United States has historically been the undisputed leader in biomedical innovation,” said Senator Burr. “Unfortunately, Medicare too often fails to swiftly provide access to the most up-to-date medical innovations. It’s essential that Medicare policies keep pace with the dynamic pipeline of 21st century products, so seniors can access breakthrough treatments without unnecessary delay. This bipartisan legislation takes the important step of updating Medicare’s coding, coverage, and payment rules and enhancing coordination between CMS and FDA. I’m

proud to work with Senators Bennet, Carper, and Scott on this important bill.” “Currently, it takes years to code new medical technologies and ensure they are covered by Medicare,” said Senator Bennet. “For high-risk patients who need these technologies, years can be too long to wait. Our bipartisan NOVEL Act will help new technologies reach patients faster and save lives and costs to our health care system.” “Millions of seniors in Delaware and across our nation rely on Medicare for health care services,” said Senator Carper. “Yet too often, Medicare cannot provide our seniors with swift access to emerging and lifesaving medical technologies because of the obsolete policies in place. This bill will help improve government processes to make new, innovative medical products available to seniors on Medicare without needless delays. I’m proud to introduce this bill that can make a real difference in the lives of our seniors.”

The rewards of patience thing that needed Hebrews 6:13-15 to be frozen. He (13) No one commended me is greater than for staying out of God. So he made the sun and proa promise in his tecting my skin. own name when Well, I told him, he said to Abra“No wonder, I’ve ham, (14) ‘I, the Pastor been shut up for Lord, will bless Ron Caulder more than a year you with many Eastside Baptist waiting for this descendants!” pandemic to end (15) Then after Abraham had been very and get back to a more patient, he was given what normal life.” I must admit, at times my patience has God had promised.” The past 16 months worn thin. Patience—that’s usuhave been a test of our patience. Last month, I went ally something most of us to see my dermatologist for are short on or suffer from my annual check-up. For extreme deficiency! the first time that I can reMost of our prayers member, I didn’t have any- for patience go like this—

“Lord, I need patience and I need it right now.” Many times when we pray, we pray wanting an immediate response--and if we are praying for patience, we want that to…right now! We don’t want to wait! We want it now! But patience is hard to learn, and I don’t know anyone who enjoys practicing this trait—we seem to have no time for patience! Life is fast, time’s running out, and we must get the show on the road, right?! This is clearly how most of us act, even if we don’t say it in so many words. Perhaps that’s why

Scripture includes abundant examples of godly patience and its reward. Over and over, we see our heavenly Father making promises to His children, only to have them wait for years---sometimes decades—for the fulfillment. But the result of patience is always a blessing! This text from Hebrews tells us about Abraham. At age 75, he was given God’s promise of a son. Ten years (10) later, he still did not have a son. After twenty (20) years—still no son! At last, when he was 100 years old—a quarter of a century after the Lord had made the promise---a

baby boy (Isaac) was born! Surely, Abraham must have had times of doubt during that lengthy wait. However, he continued to trust and watch for God to bring about what He had promised. There are numerous examples in Scripture: ~~ As a young man, Jacob met the girl of his dreams, but he had to work many years before marrying her. ~~ At 17, Joseph had a God-given vision of blessing but languished more than a decade in slavery and prison before receiving the reward. ~~ And David was

anointed Israel’s King as a teen but spent the next 14 years or so running for his life before taking the throne. Now, what can we learn from these stories of patience? Rewards come as we are patient and learn to wait and do it in God’s timing instead of our own…. that shortcuts never lead to where the Lord wants us to be. The long road, however, is filled with faithful servants. Are you waiting on God today for something He has promised in your life? Well, be of good cheer--be encouraged---you’re in good company! What the Lord promises, He will deliver!

By Loretta Cozart Last Saturday, Kings Mountain Historical Museum featured a World War II timeline camp on the grounds, featuring various living history displays. Reenactors were present to interact with the museum guests, telling of the U.S. military’s involvement in the European Theater of Operations. Emphasis was on Airborne Operations (Parachute Infantry Regiment) during World War II. Presented by the 508th Headquarters-HQ Company. This is a living history event, with a focus on how a headquarters company operates, specifically medical, demolition and communications. In addition, author, Steve Zaley, was on site selling his book “They Are Only Gone If They Are Forgotten”. Zaley is the son of a Paratrooper who served in the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 82nd Airborne Division in World War II who had been involved in 4 combat operations behind enemy lines by

parachute insertion in Sicily, Italy, Normandy, Holland. He spent three decades listening to his father’s stories about fighting in World War II with the 82nd Airborne Division’s 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment. He then spent another twenty years writing a full anthology about his father’s experience. His book is the story about the original members of the 82nd Airborne Division’s, 505th Combat Team, Third Battalion, Headquarters Company from inception in 1942 to the demobilization of high time combat forces at the end of the Second World War. The story follows the men through initial parachute training and how the Combat Team is formed. Being so successful in stateside training the President selects them to become the first division of Paratroopers to enter the war in North Africa. The 82nd Airborne Division’s, 505th Combat Team become the only Paratroopers to perform four combat operations behind enemy lines by parachute insertion. Then,

after the long ground pushes into Germany, the war ended. In a field, those present count heads to see who made it from the beginning to the end of the line and remember those who paid the ultimate price. Only a hand full of the 122 men from the beginning make it to the end of the Second World War. Those who made it from the beginning to the end of the line were changed forever. The author was contracted to produce the book with the U.S. Army, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Benning Ga. Historian and Provisional Parachute Group Historian. A steady stream of guests visited the museum throughout the morning and into the mid-afternoon. “I’m very pleased with the turnout today,” said January Costa Director of Kings Mountain Historical Museum. “Several hundred people have been through the exhibit already today, and many of them came from out of state to be here. There is a great deal of interest in WWII history.”

Parachute operations were featured. Here a family learns of day-to-day life and work of the men.

WWII EXHIBIT (From Page 7A)

Guests take a moment to talk to Steve Zaley about his book “They Are Only Gone If They Are Forgotten”.

A father and son listen attentively as the weaponry each man carried was discussed. Every man in a platoon carried at least one machine-gun clip since that weapon was key to the group’s survival.

The medical display was of interest to many who attended, especially those whose fathers had served in this area during the war.

Rice-Wilson in running for National Athlete of Year Recent Kings Mountain High graduate Javari RiceWilson has been named the North Carolina USA Today High School Sports Football Athlete of the Year award winner for the 2021 spring football season and is now in the running for National Player of the Year. He is the first athlete in the 100-plus year history of KMHS sports to be nominated for National Player of the Year. KMHS began playing organized sports in the early 1900s and began playing football in 1922; however, they did not play in 1943 because

of World War II. The winner will be announced on the USA Today High School Sports Awards show, hosted by Michael Strahan and Rob Gronkowski, at 8 p.m. EDT Thursday, August 5. The telecast can be watched on any smart device through the USA Today Sports Wire and News Wire channels, available on Roku, Samsung, Amazon Fire and most smart TVs. Viewers can also stream the show on demand on the USA Today High School Sports Awards website or through You Tube.

In addition to football, the awards honor national winners in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, hockey, lacrosse, polo, soccer, softball, swimming/diving, tennis, track and field, volleyball and wrestling. Rice-Wilson was the Defensive Player of the Year in the Big South 3A Conference after leading the Mountaineers with a school record 23 sacks which ranked third in the entire United States. Wilson’s feat is even more impressive in that he did it in nine games as the North Carolina High School Ath-

letic Association trimmed its regular season to just seven games as compared to 11 in the past because of Covid 19. Kings Mountain won the Big South and went two rounds in the state playoffs so Wilson averaged 2.5 sacks per game. In many regular season games, he and other starters left the game shortly after halftime because of big leads. The star defensive end will be continuing his football career this fall at Fordham University in New York City.

Recent Kings Mountain High graduate Javari Rice-Wilson has been selected as the North Carolina High School Football Defensive Player of the year and is now in the running for National Player of the Year.

COVID-19 death in Free COVID Vaccine First Cleveland County in 7 weeks Clinic in KM Friday The Cleveland County Health Department will be offering pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Friday, July 30 at Kings Mountain Family YMCA at 211 Cleveland Ave. in Kings Mountain from 8:30 am until 11:30 am. Everyone 18 and older who receives a first dose COVID-19 vaccine at one of these events or at the Cleveland County Health Department during the month of July will receive a $25 Visa gift card. Anyone 18 and older who drives someone to receive their first dose vaccine is also eligible to receive a $25 Visa gift card. The vaccine is free and open to everyone ages 12 and older. Registration is encouraged, but not required by calling the Cleveland County Health Department’s COVID19 Vaccine Appointment Line at 980-484-6019. In addition to receiving a gift card, everyone 18 and older who receives a first dose vaccine will be entered twice into the NCDHHS Your Shot at $1 Million Summer Cash Drawings and everyone under the age of 18 will be entered twice into the Cash 4 College drawing for the chance to win a $125,000 college scholarship to support post-secondary education. “In Cleveland County, 35% of our population is fully vaccinated and 37% of our population has received at least one dose of the vaccine,” said DeShay Oliver, Deputy Health Director, Cleveland County Health Department. “Our vaccine uptake locally is quite a bit behind the state of North Carolina, with 45% of our state’s population being fully vaccinated and 48% having

received at least one dose. This is very concerning with the more contagious and dangerous Delta variant now being the most dominant coronavirus variant in the US and in NC,” she added. According to NCDHHS, nearly 100% of all new COVID-19 cases are in people who are not vaccinated, with most new cases being among our young people due to lower vaccination rates in these age groups. “I think some parents are less inclined to get their children vaccinated because young people have a lower risk of severe illness from the virus,” Oliver said. “However, it is important for parents and others to understand that while the risk of severe illness in young people is lower, there is still a far greater risk of severe illness from the virus than there is from the vaccine. Over 300 children under the age of 18 have died from COVID-19 in the US. Furthermore, even if you have a mild case of COVID-19, research shows you may still struggle with long-terms effects such as shortness of breath, chest discomfort and brain fog.” Rigorous clinical trials with thousands of people including children twelve and older, as well as experience with COVID19 vaccination among hundreds of millions of diverse Americans, have shown that they are safe and effective—even against the dangerous Delta variant. Yet, par-

ents still express concern about side effects, particularly heart inflammation, from getting their children vaccinated. According to NCDHHS, heart inflammation—myocarditis and pericarditis—is much more likely to happen and be more severe if your teen gets COVID-19. It is very rare that heart inflammation is a side effect of COVID-19 vaccines in teens. When it happens, it’s temporary, often goes away by itself and is easily treatable. Unvaccinated teens run a higher risk of serious COVID-19 complications like hospitalization, multisystem inflammatory syndrome, and death. As stated by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the high risk of your teen getting COVID19 and suffering longterm effects far outweighs the extremely rare risk of your teen experiencing temporary heart inflammation as a result of vaccination. That’s why the CDC continues to recommend COVID-19 vaccination for everyone 12 years of age and older. Don’t wait to vaccinate – take advantage of the COVID-19 vaccine and have peace of mind that you and your child are protected when going to public places, events, and back to school come this fall.

After months of decline, Cleveland County, like the state of North Carolina, is experiencing a rapid increase in the spread of COVID-19. On July 26, the Cleveland County Health Department received a report of a death from COVID-19 in a resident under the age of 50. This is the first death from COVID-19 in Cleveland County in seven weeks, bringing the county’s total COVID-19 deaths to 229. All other county COVID19 metrics are increasing as well. In the past 14 days, Cleveland County has had a total of 197 COVID cases, averaging approximately 14 new cases a day. In the past 7 days, the county has had a total of 123 new cases, bringing the average of new daily cases up to 18 a day. Yesterday, the county received a total of 30 cases in one day. Last week, NCDHHS updated the state’s County Alert System – Cleveland County was one of twelve counties that moved from yellow to orange, indicating substantial spread of COVID-19 within the community. Cleveland County’s percent of tests that are positive is currently 10.8% compared to North Carolina’s positivity rate of 6.7%. There are currently ten (10) Cleveland County residents hospitalized from COVID-19. “Many of these cases,

hospitalizations, and deaths could be prevented by getting the COVID-19 vaccine,” said DeShay Oliver, Deputy Health Director, Cleveland County Health Department. “According to NCDHHS, over 94% of recent cases of COVID-19 in North Carolina are in people who are not vaccinated. While a very small percentage of vaccinated individuals in NC have contracted COVID-19, these vaccinated individuals are far less likely to suffer severe illness and death from the virus. People who are not vaccinated are at risk for infection from the more contagious and potentially dangerous Delta variant that now makes up over 80% of all cases in our state.” NCDHHS urges all unvaccinated North Carolinians, age 12 and older, to get a COVID-19 vaccine to protect against severe illness, hospitalization and death. Rigorous clinical trials among thousands of people ages 12 and older, have proven vaccines are safe and effective. More than 160 million Americans have now been safely vaccinated. Vaccines are the best protection from COVID-19 related hospitalizations and deaths, as well as complications from the virus. To date, 38% of Cleveland County residents have received at least one dose

CDC and NC emphasize masking during the upcoming school year On July 21, Governor Roy Cooper and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. shared updated public health guidance for K-12 schools to follow in the upcoming school year. “The most important work our state will do next month is getting all our school children back into the classrooms safely for in-person learning,” said Governor Cooper. “That’s the best way for them to learn, and we

want their school days to be as close to normal as possible, especially after a year of disruption.” The updated StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit is aligned with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Academy of Pediatrics guidance, which urges that everything possible be done to keep students in schools and emphasizes continued masking. The Toolkit says schools with students in

kindergarten through eighth grade should require all children and staff to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Schools with students in 9th through 12th grades should ensure that anyone who isn’t fully vaccinated, including students, wear a mask indoors. This guidance is effective July 30th and local school leaders are responsible for requiring and implementing protocols in the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit in consultation with their local health departments. The Toolkit also updates additional measures for schools related to quarantining after COVID exposure, physical distancing, testing, transportation, cleaning and other considerations. State health officials continue to urge unvaccinated people to follow CDC and NCDHHS guidance and wear a mask indoors. When Executive Order 220 expires at the end of July, North Carolina businesses and other entities where masks are required will make their own decisions about requiring masks, with strong guidance provided by NCDHHS. Everyone, regardless of vaccine status, should still wear a mask in certain places such as public transportation and healthcare facilities. “Get vaccinated right now if you haven’t. We are seeing the impact of the very contagious Delta variant of COVID-19 and it’s hitting those who are unvaccinated hard,” said Secretary Cohen. “Schools need to use the additional safety protocols outlined in the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit to continue to protect students and staff as we enter the new school year.” To date, North Carolina has administered more than 9.5 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, with 56 percent of the adult population fully vaccinated. Sixty percent of adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine, including 86 percent of people 65 and over.

Caldwell imprisoned for scamming citizens On June 29, Dalton Lynn Caldwell pleaded guilty to 7 counts of Obtaining Property by False Pretense. Dalton received two 6-17 months active sentences and will be incarcerated in the North Carolina Department of Corrections. Upon his release Dalton will be on Probation for 60 months. Dalton was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $137,911.73, to his victims. Dalton scammed numerous individuals out of their

DALTON LYNN CALDWEL hard-earned money by rep-

resenting himself as a small business (Caldwell Pools and Spa’s). Dalton accepted money to install and/or repair a pool/hot tub. Once payment was received, Dalton would complete little or no work. The investigation into Dalton began on July 30, 2019, when a fraud report was filed with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office. During the investigation, two search warrants were applied for and granted. The

search warrants resulted in the discovery of several other victims. Once word of the investigation got out, other previously unknown victims began contacting the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office. Dalton was ultimately charged with 14 counts of Obtaining Property by False Pretense. Dalton has similar pending charges in South Carolina, Rutherford County, Gaston County, and Stanley County.

COVID cases up 53% in one week, we’re not out of the woods yet By Loretta Cozart In a press conference last Friday, Dr. Walensky of the White House COVID Response Team urged unvaccinated Americans to get their shot. Numbers of positive COVID cases are on the rise, with a seven-day average at about 37,700 cases per day in America. This number represents an increase of 53 percent from the prior seven-day average. The seven-day average of hospital admissions is about 35,000 per day — an increase of about 32 percent from the previous seven-day period. And the seven-day average of daily deaths has also increased to 237 per day — and increase of about 19 percent from the previous seven-day

period. The Delta variant is spreading with incredible efficiency and now represents more than 83 percent of the virus circulating in the United States. “Compared to the virus we had circulating initially in the United States at the start of the pandemic, the Delta variant is more aggressive and much more transmissible than previously circulating strains. It is one of the most infectious respiratory viruses we know of and that I have seen in my 20-year career,” Dr. Walensky said. “If you are still on the fence, if you still have questions about the vaccines, we welcome them. My request to you is this: Ask your questions. Talk to your healthcare provider. Talk

to your pharmacist. Talk to your friends and neighbors who have gotten vaccinated and get your questions answered so that you feel comfortable and informed in making this critical decision. And, please, continue to do the things that we know work to protect you and your family until you are fully vaccinated,” he said. “Please consider getting vaccinated and take precautions until you do. And if you’ve already had COVID infection, CDC guidance strongly recommends that you get vaccinated. It gives you longer-lasting and more robust protection with the breadth and depth of coverage needed to conquer the variants currently circulating in this country.”

Those already gotten vaccinated have a high degree of protection against infection and an even a higher degree of protection against severe illness, hospitalization, and death. Data shows that infections are much less common in vaccinated people compared to unvaccinated, and most illness in vaccinated individuals is asymptomatic or mild. The most important public health step is to increase the vaccination coverage in all communities in the U.S. and globally. “There are places in this country where cases are high and cases caused by the Delta variant are also really high, and many of these areas have low vaccine coverage,” Dr. Wilensky warned. “In areas with high

vaccine coverage and low rates of disease transmission, the chances of you coming in close contact with someone who is infectious is relatively low.” In contrast, in areas with low vaccine coverage and high transmission, there is a much higher chance of you coming in close contact with one or many persons who are infectious and that, in those cases, the greatest risk is for those who are not fully vaccinated. “Whether you are vaccinated or not, please know we, together, are not out of the woods yet and you will want to make thoughtful decisions to protect your health and the health of your family and your community,” said Dr. Walensky. “We are yet at another piv-

otal moment in this pandemic, with cases rising again and some hospitals reaching their capacity in some areas. We need to come together as one nation, unified in our resolve to protect the health of ourselves, our children, our community, our country, and our future with the tools we have available.” A free COVID-19 vaccine clinic is being held this Friday, July 30 at Kings Mountain Family YMCA at 211 Cleveland Ave. from 8:30 am until 11:30 am. Registration is encouraged, but not required by calling the Cleveland County Health Department’s COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Line at 980-4846019.

Does Medicare Cover Home Health Care? Dear Savvy Senior, How does Medicare cover in-home health care? My husband has a chronic health condition that makes it very difficult for him to leave the house, so I’m wondering if he could qualify for Medicare home health care. Seeking Help

Dear Seeking, Medicare covers a wide variety of parttime or intermittent in-home health care services to beneficiaries in need, if they meet Medicare’s criteria. Here’s how it works. In order for your husband to secure coverage for home health care, Medicare first requires that he be homebound. This means that it must be extremely difficult for him to leave home, and he needs help doing so either from another person or medical device like a cane, wheelchair, walker or crutches. He will then need to have a face-toface meeting with his doctor to get a home health certification confirming that he needs skilled-nursing care or skilled-therapy services from a physical or speech therapist on a part-time basis.

His doctor can also request the services of an occupational therapist and a personal care aide to assist with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and using the bathroom. His doctor must renew and certify his home health plan every 60 days. He will also need to use a home health agency that is certified by Medicare. If he meets all of the requirements, Medicare should pay for his in-home health care. But be aware that Medicare will not pay for personal care aide services (for bathing, dressing, using the bathroom, etc.) alone if he does not need skilled-nursing or skilled-therapy services too. Homemaker services, such as shopping, meal preparation and cleaning are not covered either. If your husband has original Medicare, you can locate a Medicare-certified home health agency by calling 800633-4227 or by visiting Medicare.gov/ care-compare. If he has a Medicare Advantage plan, you should contact his plan directly and ask which home health agencies work with the plan and

are within the plan’s network of providers.

For more detailed information on how Medicare covers in-home health, see the “Medicare and Home Health Care” online booklet at Medicare.gov/ Pubs/pdf/10969-Medicare-and-HomeHealth-Care.pdf. Other Options If your husband does not qualify for Medicare home health care coverage, there are other coverage options depending on your situation. Here are several that may apply to you: Insurance: If you happen to have longterm care insurance, check to see if it covers in-home care. Or if you have a life insurance policy, see if it can be utilized to pay for care. Medicaid: If your income is low, your husband may qualify for Medicaid, which offers different home and community-based services that can pay for in-home care. To investigate this, contact your local Medicaid office. Also see if PACE – which stands for “Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly” – is available in your area

(see NPAonline.org). PACE provides in-home care, including help with activities of daily living, such as meals, dental and medical care, among other benefits. Veterans Benefits: If your husband is a veteran, the VA also offers some benefits that can help. Two programs to inquire about are “Aid and Attendance or Housebound Allowances” and the “Veteran-Directed Care” program. Both programs provide monthly financial benefits to eligible veterans that can help pay for in-home care. To learn more, contact your regional VA benefit office (see Benefits.va.gov/benefits/offices.asp or call 800–827–1000). To look for these and other programs in your area that can help pay your husband’s home care, go to PayingForSeniorCare.com and click on “Find Financial Assistance for Care” to access their Eldercare Financial Assistance Locator tool. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
