Blessed Boutique and Consignment celebrates 2-month anniversary By Loretta Cozart

Verizon Tower located at 500 S. Railroad Avenue.

New cell tower to provide better phone coverage By Loretta Cozart A few weeks ago, Verizon began installation of a new cell tower to help with poor phone coverage in town. Citizens seemed surprised at the news, but the topic was discussed in January at a Public Hearing of the Kings Mountain Board of Adjustments on January 19. According to now retired David W. Owens of the UNC School of Government, “Quasi-judicial decisions involve the application of zoning policies already established in the ordinance to individual situations--for example, variances, specialand conditional-use permits (even if issued by the governing board), appeals, and interpretations. Quasi-judicial decisions involve two

key elements: the finding of facts regarding the specific proposal and the exercise of some discretion in applying predetermined policies to the situation.” Owens goes on to share, “Both (legislative and Quasi-judicial) hearings are open to the public and are intended to solicit comments, but they have different standards for the notice required prior to the hearing, as well as for who can speak, what issues are appropriately raised, the formality with which the hearing must be conducted, and the records that must be maintained.” The cell tower is located at 500 S. Railroad Avenue. Joel K. Harris of Baker Donelson applied for a conditional use permit for See TOWER, Page 5A

Fatal crash on Bethlehem Road By Loretta Cozart At approximately 1 am on August 3, a car driving south on Bethlehem Road in Kings Mountain ran off the road, hitting a culvert and then a telephone pole before coming to a stop. Three people were ejected from the vehicle. Jason Matthew Ingle,

19, of Grover was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, Garrett Clay Barber, was airlifted to Atrium Health Main in Charlotte. The condition of the other passengers is not known. North Carolina Highway Patrol’s Reconstruction Unit is determining the events of the accident. Once complete, they will meet with the District Attorney to determine if charges will be filed.

On August 5, Blessed Boutique and Consignment celebrated it’s second month anniversary at their new location at 210 East Kings Street in Kings Mountain. Destiny Lindsay operated her business from home on Walker Street for nearly two years before making the leap to lease a storefront. “I told my husband we just didn’t have any more room at home and I needed to rent space. Within 3-days, this property became available,” she said. Downstairs, she uses two rooms for her own boutique, offering clothes, shoes, and accessories. Upstairs, she rents space and currently has 20 vendors, from consultants like Paparazzi Jewelry to Pillow Street. “We also have ven-

of stuff,” Destiny said. “We rent space by the month and do not take a percentage of

sales.” That is a good option for vendors who want See BLESSED, Page 5A

National Night Out draws huge crowd By Loretta Cozart On August 3, Kings Mountain celebrated National Night Out in a big way at Patriots Park. Kids and parents turned out to celebrate, meeting officers, deputies, and first responders, along with others from Kings Mountain who support safe communities. Police Chief Lisa Proctor, along with other local dignitaries welcomed those in attendance and shared the importance of the night. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a

Have the humility to learn from those around you. –John C. Maxwell

Pieces of Kings Mountain History For the last three years I have been reporting regularly for the Kings LORETTA Mountain COZART Herald; it is an honor and a great responsibility, and one I don’t take lightly. The topic of this article is usually historical in nature. Today though, I am going to write about things I have learned in the last three years covering the news and events of the community. After sitting through 50 city council meetings, I have learned the importance of paying attention to meetings that specifically impact property. And there are two important monthly meetings to pay attention to, along with city council. Two other boards that citizens need to pay attention to closely in-

clude the Planning and Zoning Board and Kings Mountain Board of Adjustment. The Planning and Zoning Board cannot make decisions on behalf of the city. The Planning and Zoning Board is an advisory committee that participates in the development of the city’s comprehensive plan, preparation of special studies, updating of land use plans, development of policies relating to land uses, drafts ordinances, reviews zoning ordinance and zoning text amendments. It also reviews and advises City Council on the matter of major subdivision plats. Issues discussed by them are sent to city council for approval. According to cityofkm. com, the Planning and Zoning Board meets monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at City

Hall, and they have regularly met this year. Members of that board include Chairman Doug Lawing, Ron Humphries, Renee Bost, Ronnie Franks, Joseph Allen, Bobby Elliot, Donald Adkins, Todd Wilson, Chris Jolly, Clinton Bouldin, and Kyle Yarbro. Kings Mountain Board of Adjustment is a terminal decision board that interprets the zoning ordinance, issues orders granting or denying variations from the zoning ordinance, and issues orders granting or denying conditional use permit requests. Their decisions are final and do not require city council’s approval. If someone does not agree with a decision they make, those decisions can be appealed in Superior Court. Checking online at the city’s website, they haven’t met since May.

So, readers should check with City Hall if you don’t see an agenda online a few days prior to their meeting date. Quasi-judicial decisions of the Board of Adjustment involve two key elements: the finding of facts regarding the specific proposal and the exercise of some discretion in applying predetermined policies to the situation. Because of this, only parties to a particular issue are allowed to speak during those meetings, unlike city council or at planning and zoning. According to cityofkm. com, members of the Board of Adjustment include Chairman Doug Lawing, Jim Potter, Phil Dee, Ronnie Franks, Bill McMurry, Bobby Elliott, and Maury Williams. Recently citizens shared their displeasure online regarding the Ver-

izon cell tower being installed at 500 S. Railroad Avenue. The decision to approve the variance was made by the Board of Adjustment. It was not brought to city council for approval, because that step is not necessary for this board. That is why it is referred to as a terminal board. By that time construction began, it was too late to complain. The decision had been made seven months prior, in January. All three groups, City Council, Planning and Zoning, and Board of Adjustment, play key roles in your life as a citizen of Kings Mountain. And decision they make can a have huge impact on you and your property. If you want to stay in the know about topics being brought before these boards, you can get the meeting agendas online a few days prior to

their meetings. Mark the boards’ meeting dates on your calendar and check the agendas to see if issues during their meetings might impact you and your property. Visit https://www. Boards-Commissions to find all Kings Mountain’s boards and to get more info on meeting dates, times, and agendas. Kings Mountain is changing quickly. To keep up, readers need to do be proactive, do your homework, and pay attention to what issues are coming before these boards. Refer to page 4B in today’s paper for a Public Notice for TowerCom IV, LLC proposing to construct a 183- foot overall height monopole telecommunications support structure at 500 S Railroad Ave. The next Board of Adjustment meeting is scheduled for August 15.

Mayor reimburses city for use of truck By Loretta Cozart In a conversation with City Manager Marilyn Sellers, the Herald learned

that Mayor Scott Neisler paid the city $122.08 for the use of a 15-foot panel truck and for the gasoline used. The cost was deter-

mined through a quote with Enterprise Truck Rental and included both the cost to rent the same size truck and a per-mile fuel cost.

We are always learning. Life is filled with education. We learn all the time. Glenn Mollette Guest Editorial Every day we receive new information about health, the planet, communication, medicines, the universe and more. Life is a process of learning and developing. Education is more than grades one through twelve, college, and beyond. There are many aspects to every job we do that we never learned in school. We learn from parents if we will listen. We learn from coworkers. We learn from our failures. We learn how not to do something because we tried it once and it failed. The good thing about failing is that it doesn’t haven’t to be final. Some things are final but not everything. Just because your first marriage failed doesn’t mean your second marriage will fail. Hopefully you learned from your first marriage and you won’t make the same mistakes the second time around. You may have a busi-

ness failure. This happens to a lot of people. This doesn’t mean your business efforts will fail in the future. Hopefully you learned from your first efforts and can avoid the same mistakes again in your next endeavor. Possibly you tried a lifestyle that did not work out for you. Maybe you abused alcohol or even drugs or pursued a negative lifestyle that greatly diminished your life to the point where your life seemed hopeless. This doesn’t mean you have to stay this way. With a dedicated decision and often help from others you can turn your life around and do better. We can learn from mistakes. They are educational and usually expensive. They set us back in life. They aren’t fun and can be tormenting. Remember, you can’t live in the past. Don’t totally forget what past failure did to you because you don’t want to repeat your mistakes. However, the past is over. Live your life forward. As you go forward there are easier ways to learn. Study the lives

of others. Research what they did and read. People all around us are either succeeding, failing or at least stable. Study others whose lives intrigue or impress you. Study their careers, work ethic, their values and how they make them work to achieve the life they are living. You can learn a lot by observing and studying others. You can also learn from the failures of others. What were some of their obvious mistakes? Volunteering or taking an entry level job with someone you would like to emulate is a great way to learn their success principles. There are cases where nothing seems to make sense. Life is not always fair. We all have different interests, physical abilities, backgrounds and lifelong developed skills. Take all these into consideration and bring them together to work for you. Success always has new twists, turns and innovative ways. However, they are not accomplished without some form of life learning, commitment and hard work.

The 5 purposes of the Church Purpose two: Discipleship Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20) The goal of discipleship is to remove the gap between knowing and doing.

the cooperation of the saved. The goal of the disciple is not Heaven only but Christlikeness. The goal of the disciple is not the forgiveness of sin only but the imputation and demonstration of His righteousness. To reach that goal, the church exists to disciple. Many people today claim to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. The test or proof of their discipleship is when knowing becomes doing. Or to KNOWING DOING put it in a more direct and personal way – the proof of your discipleship is The Bible is God’s Word. Reads and studies the Bible. when knowing becomes doing. Bro. Chip Sloan G Prayer connects us with God. Prays. Jesus told the disciples to go and make disciples. It seems clear to me Pastor Every believer is gifted for ministry. A Ministers. First Baptist Church in Scripture that He also calls the saved to go to church and be discipled. It Kings Mountain is there that we learn and it is there that we are encouraged to do. “And let Every believer is to witness. Witnesses. P us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one There is a gap, which is real and obvious, between what a Christian should be and what most Christians are. There is a noticeable gap between what Christians claim to believe and what another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25). I can’t they actually do. There may be a gap, real and obvious, between what you should be speak for everyone but I “see the Day approaching.” The church must disciple the saved and the saved must be willing to be discipled. (even want to be) and what you are. There are many good Bible-believing, Christ-honoring churches in Kings Mountain The challenge of the church is to close that gap. The method is discipleship. The prepared to disciple you. Join one, learn in one that you might be a doer of the Word, goal of discipleship is not mere knowledge but obedience. The church has the responsibility of making disciples. But disciple-making requires proving yourself to be His disciple.

Windows on the McGinnis Building have been replaced. In May, John B. McGinnis was awarded a Downtown Façade Grant application in the amount of $5,000 for the property located at 245 and 247 South Battleground Avenue. Photo by Loretta Cozart

The stonework that has covered the façade of the Joy Theater for decades has been removed, revealing the original placement of display cases and the ticket window. Photo Loretta Cozart

Joy Theater’s original façade revealed By Loretta Cozart Construction has revealed the original brickwork façade of the Joy Theater as renovations of the 74-year-old building continue. The stone façade, added while the facility

was used as a church, has been stripped away. Underneath, the stone are bricks run in a stack bond pattern. Along the wall, cinder blocks now fill the once used outdoor display areas that showcased movie posters advertising running and

upcoming films. As second display is on the right side of the theater and provides architectural balance to the building. Instead of having a center ticket booth, the ticket booth was located on the right side of the entrance.

The stack bond pattern in the brick was distinctive of the Joy Theater’s façade It, too, has also been revealed. That space was also filled with cinder blocks. It will be interesting to see how these areas are handled during the renovation. The Kings Mountain Little Theatre continues its fundraising campaign, and it allows for a one-time donation or up to a five-year

Touchdown Club kicks off annual membership drive

Head coach Greg Lloyd talks to his team prior to the first full contact practice Saturday morning at Gamble Stadium.

KM and Catholic to battle again Friday in CC Jamboree at Crest Kings Mountain and Charlotte Catholic, who had one of North Carolina prep football’s classic battles when they went seven overtimes in the Western Regionals championship two seasons ago in Charlotte, will face off again Friday night at 8 o’clock in the annual Cleveland County Jamboree at Crest High School. Four games are slated. Burns takes on AC Reynolds at 6 p.m., followed by Shelby and Asheville at 8. After the KM-Catholic game, the host Chargers will battle Newton-Conover at 9. The Mountaineers and Cougars haven’t faced off since that high-scoring battle two seasons ago, but Coach Greg Lloyd and his charges know they are in for a fight. If the young Mountaineer squad can hang with Catholic, it may be a spark to lead them to some good nights when regular season play begins the following week. Catholic isn’t the only “toughie” the Mountaineers will face before beginning Big South Conference

The Kings Mountain Touchdown Club is kicking off its annual membership drive and is asking present members and prospective members to get on board to help support all 26 KMHS athletic teams. The TD Club is in its 15th year and has spearheaded numerous projects that have turned KM’s athletic facilities into some of the best in the state while also supporting every team. President David Brinkley urges all club members to consider moving up a level so the club can do even more for the athletes. “We need everyone’s help to accomplish the needs of our athletes,” he said. Membership levels include: First down club - $100. Second down club $200. Third down club - $300. Fourth down club $500. Coaches Club - $1,000 and up. Brinkley asks that members send in their dues by August 20. The Mountaineers’ first home game

is that night against the Shelby Golden Lions. Make tax-deductible donations payable to Kings Mountain Touchdown Club and mail them to PO Box 2017, Kings Mountain, NC 28086. Provide your email address to help control mailing costs. “The Touchdown Club has tried to make a difference for our athletes and in the facilities at KMHS,” Brinkley said. The club raises money through an annual golf tournament, which will be played Friday at Kings Mountain Country Club; and an online auction Thursday from 9 a.m. to Saturday at 6 p.m. Go to kings mountain to preregister and bid when the auction opens. Items are posted and more will be added every week. The club’s first meeting this year will be Tuesday, August 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the KMHS field house. Barbecue will be prepared by the Cooking Maniacs. There is no charge but you should RSVP to 704-7394689 if you plan to attend.

ALWS events begin tomorrow

From Page 1B Mountaineers had about 70 players (JV and varsity) on the field and the other three county teams reported about the same number. Coach Lloyd’s charges are coming off an 8-1 spring 2021 season. Although COVID is rearing its ugly head again, all prep teams hope to be able to play a full fall schedule. By new NCHSAA rules, only 10 regular season games are allowed. The Mountaineers would love to win Friday as well as in their three season-opening non-conference games, but one of their top goals will be to see which players might earn starting positions

and hopefully put them in position for a good regular season. They lost 24 seniors off last season’s team, so this year’s will be one of the most inexperienced they’ve had in years. Lloyd plans to start the season using both Jonah Patrick and Lamont Littlejohn at quarterback, so every Mountaineer fan will want to see how they fare Friday night. Patrick was the back-up to All-Conference Ethan Reid last year, and Littlejohn quarterbacked the JV Mountaineers to an undefeated (4-0) season which was cut short because several teams folded their JV programs due to COVID and low turnouts. The word from other schools is that some may not field JV teams this season because of low turnouts.

Battle of KM SAR Chapter to commemorate Tryon Resolves this Saturday By Loretta Cozart Battle of Kings Mountain SAR chapter plans a scaled down commemoration of the Signing of the Tryon Resolves on Saturday, August 14 at 10:30 am at the Tryonata Fire Department in Bessemer City. The Tryonata Fire Department in Bessemer City is located next to the mon-

ument honoring the signers and is very near the actual location where the document was signed on August 14, 1775. The men who signed the Tryon Resolves risked their lives and their fortunes by signing this document. They were, in the eyes of Great Britain, traitors. Some of them fought in local battles to win our

freedom. Two local DAR Chapters in the area were named after signers, the Colonel Frederick Hambright Chapter in Kings Mountain, and the Jacob Forney Chapter in Lincolnton. Many of the descendants of the signers still live in the Cleveland County, Lincoln Country, and Gaston County areas.

Pinnacle Classical Academy robotics team finishes strong at Maryland invitational Pinnacle Classical Academy's grade 7-12 robotics team, the Pi Rho Eagles, competed in the fifth annual Maryland Tech Invitational on July 31, and Aug. 1, and finished among the top 10 teams overall. The team was also the runner-up in the competi-

tion for the software innovation award. “We are so proud of our robotics team, one of the best in the state and the nation, and grateful for the support of parents, coaches, and benefactors,” said Dr. Shelly Bullard, the school’s headmaster.

The Maryland Tech Invitational brings together FIRST Tech Challenge robotics teams from around the nation and around the world that have demonstrated excellence in science, technology, engineering and math.

HOPE Program accepting tenant referrals from landlords The Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (HOPE) Program has announced program changes to accept referrals of tenants from landlords and increase financial awards to North Carolina households that apply for pandemic-related rent and utility assistance. The new guidelines aim to help even more renters get back on their feet while also assisting landlords that have lost income due to the economic impacts of COVID19. Since opening last fall, the HOPE Program has awarded more than $305.5 million to 81,039 households, with $219.2 million already paid to landlords and utility companies statewide. “We established the HOPE Program to keep low-income tenants hit hard by COVID-19 in their homes with the lights on,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “HOPE has already assisted more than 81,000 families, and these program changes will make sure even more people get the help they need while our state recovers.” Landlords whose tenants are struggling to pay rent due to the pandemic can submit names and contact information using the HOPE Program website or by contacting the HOPE Call Center at 888-9ASK-HOPE (888-9275467). A program specialist will then follow up with the tenant to help start the application process. Additionally, starting Aug. 1, the HOPE Program monthly rent award limit will increase by 30%, which will allow the program to cover approximately 95% of all rent awards requested by tenants. Similarly, the utility award limit will increase by 100%, a change that will cover nearly 90% of all past-due amounts requested by program applicants. The new limits will apply to all new applications received, including applicants reapplying for assistance. The HOPE Program promotes housing stability by providing rent and utility bill assistance to prevent evictions and the disconnection of utilities. The program currently serves 88 North Carolina counties, with 12 counties and five Native American tribes receiving direct federal funding to operate their own emergency rent and utility programs. A complete list of the counties served by

the HOPE Program, county programs and tribal government programs can be found using the online NC HOPE Interactive Map. Information about the HOPE Program, including eligibility requirements, program benefits and an online application, is available at Applicants who cannot access the website should call 888-9ASK-HOPE (888-9275467) for help with the application process. The HOPE Call Center is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Both English- and Spanish-speaking representatives are available to assist callers. Applicants who applied

for assistance during the first phase of the HOPE Program are eligible to reapply for additional help. Funding for the HOPE Program is provided to the state through U.S. Department of Treasury Coronavirus Relief Fund allocations and the Emergency Rental Assistance Program established by the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2021. The HOPE Program is managed by the N.C. Office of Recovery and Resiliency, a division of the Department of Public Safety. To learn more about the HOPE Program, visit


Gov. Roy Cooper and his public safety team convened state leaders in education, public safety, public health and criminal justice Monday in Greensboro to learn about North Carolina’s new fiveyear strategic plan for creating safer schools. The State Action Plan on School Safety, developed during the last two years, builds off preexisting school safety studies by the Governor’s Crime Commission, the Center for Safer Schools, the U.S. Secret Service and information gained through public forums and meetings with stakeholders. In a pre-recorded video message, Gov. Cooper welcomed the school safety stakeholders to the half-day summit held in the UNC-G Auditorium. Policy staff from the N.C. Department of Public Safety provided the attendees with a detailed overview of the new State Action Plan for School Safety. “By working together to get the right services to students who need it, this partnership among state agencies, school districts and local law enforcement can help stop tragedies in our schools before they even happen,” said Governor Cooper. “As one of the recommendations outlined in the Task Force for Racial Equity in Criminal Justice, this plan is already having an impact in our communities.” Attendees learned the plan began with a vison that through a Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child approach, every school in North Carolina will be a

safe school where all students can learn, all teachers can teach, and all school staff can do their work without any concerns for their well-being. They then heard about the process that was undertaken to develop the plan and the eight guiding principles that provided direction for the plan’s development. Those principles include actions to make schools safer should be carried out fairly and with a do no harm approach; the importance of preventing school violence incidents before they occur; and basing school safety efforts on available data and evidence-based practices. Attendees also learned about the plan’s five over-arching goals and supporting objectives focused on preventing, protecting from, responding to, and recovering from incidents of school violence, as well as promoting positive learning environments. The members of the N.C. Task Force on Safer Schools will be charged with overseeing the implementation of the State Action Plan on School Safety and monitoring the state’s progress towards implementing its goals. State Superintendent for Public Instruction Catherine Truitt spoke about the importance of comprehensive school safety for the whole child, community and school system in terms of mental health and public safety. “To truly serve district leaders, staff, students, and parents, there must be collaboration and communication with those in the community,” Superintendent Truitt

said. “The Center for Safer Schools continues to promote and develop relationships with all stakeholders involved in student safety. Their ongoing work involves building relationships with health providers, law enforcement, emergency responders and others who are pivotal to school safety and student well-being. They are key in facilitating those relationships within districts and work with schools to create those lines of communication.” Attendees this afternoon also received updates from the Center for Safer Schools and the Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services. Topics discussed included school justice partnerships; a local perspective on school safety; and school resource officer training. Reps. John A. Torbett, and Ashton W. Clemmons provided an update on legislation affecting school safety. “Providing safer schools requires strong intra-agency partnerships and communication,” said NCDPS Interim Secretary Casandra Skinner Hoekstra. “The State Action Plan for School Safety that we are rolling out today is one way to help ensure strong state and local collaboration on school safety going forward. All of us, working together, must continue to find ways to improve the safety of our children and those staff in whose care we entrust them, when we send them to school.”

NC offers $100 Summer Cards to those getting first-time COVID-19 vaccines After months of decline, North Carolina is experiencing a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases among those who are unvaccinated. All of the state’s key metrics are increasing with hospitalizations doubling over the past two weeks, the number of people going to the emergency department with COVID-like symptoms

rising, and the percent of tests that are positive well over the 5% threshold. Our trends are accelerating at an alarmingly fast rate because of the highly contagious Delta variant. Unvaccinated people are driving this resurgence and getting themselves and other people sick. People who are unvaccinated make up almost all cases where people are

hospitalized and dying. Vaccinations are our only way of the pandemic. To find a vaccine location, go to Getting vaccinated prevents serious illness, hospitalizations and death and slows community spread. Rigorous clinical trials among thousands of people ages 12 and older have See CARDS, Page 5B

CARDS From Page 4B proven that vaccines are safe and effective. More than 160 million Americans have been safely vaccinated. To respond to rising COVID-19 trends, NCDHHS has updated its guidance. If you are not vaccinated, you need to continue practicing the 3 Ws. Wear a mask in all indoor public settings. Wait 6 feet apart in all public settings. Wash your hands often. You should not gather with unvaccinated people who do

not live with you. If you do, stay outside and keep 6 feet apart. If you are not vaccinated, you also should not travel. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people who live in areas with high or substantial levels of transmission wear a mask when in indoor public settings - even if they are vaccinated. In North Carolina, that is already more than 90% of counties. The CDC also recommends that all K-12 schools require universal masking, regardless of vaccination

Page 5B status. NCDHHS updated its guidance for schools to align with this recommendation. This moment requires action. Don’t wait until you infect someone you love. Get a vaccine today. To help more North Carolinians protect themselves against COVID-19 and the highly contagious Delta variant, North Carolina is now offering $100 Summer Cards at some vaccine sites across the state to offset the time and transportation costs of getting vaccinated. From Aug. 4 through Aug. 31, the $100 Summer

Cards are available to anyone 18 and older who gets their first dose of a COVID19 vaccine at a participating site—while supplies last.

Governor Cooper announces third COVID-19 cash drawing winner August 4, amid h i g h e r COVID-19 numbers statewide, Governor Roy Cooper again Gov. Cooper urged North Carolinians to get vaccinated. He also announced the third winner of North Carolina’s Your Shot at $1 Million Summer Cash Drawing. Winston-Salem resident and incoming Fayetteville State University freshman Audrey Chavous received the $1 million prize as part of the cash drawing that includes

North Carolinians 18 and over who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. “The highly contagious Delta variant makes vaccination all the more important,” said Governor Cooper. “We can’t afford for people to wait any longer. Cases, hospitalizations, and deaths from COVID-19 are up. Simply put, get your shot.” Kody Kinsley, Chief Deputy Secretary for Health at the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), said he hopes Chavous will inspire other young adults to get vaccinated right away and take

advantage of the state’s new $100 Summer Cards for people who get their first dose of the vaccine. “New cases of COVID19 are on the rise and most of these cases are among young adults,” said Kinsley. “Vaccination is our way out of this pandemic and putting masks behind us. Our $1 Million Summer Cash drawings might be over, but you can still get a $100 Summer Card through the end of August. Don’t wait to vaccinate.” In the last couple of weeks, North Carolina has seen a 42% increase in first shots. “Facts about COVID-

19 vaccines are key,” said Chavous, the cash drawing winner. “If you take your time and do the research, you’ll see that it’s backed by science and that the benefits of COVID-19 vaccines far outweigh any short-term side effects or rare risks.” Governor Cooper was also joined by Laura Hogshead, Director of the North Carolina Office of Recovery and Resiliency to update on the progress of emergency rental assistance. The North Carolina Office of Recovery and Resiliency (NCORR) stood up the HOPE program last year and it is helping peo-

ple across the state stay in their homes with the lights on. The average turnaround from application to payment on claims is 14-18 days. Since the HOPE Program opened last fall, more than $328 million has been awarded to help North Carolina families, with over $234 million already paid to landlords and utility providers statewide. The HOPE Program has recently implemented program changes that will expand landlord participation and increase the amount of assistance going to families across the state. As of August 1, HOPE is accepting landlord referrals

of tenants who need assistance. If you are a landlord whose tenant is struggling to pay rent, you can submit their name and contact information at the HOPE website. In addition, the HOPE Program has increased the cap on financial awards to applicants The monthly rent award limit has increased by 30 percent and the utility award limit has increased a full 100 percent for all new applications as of August 1. For more information on the HOPE program visit WWW.HOPE.NC.GOV or call 888-9ASK HOPE to get help.


How to Buy the Best Blood Pressure Monitor for You Dear Savvy Senior, I just found out I have stage 1 hypertension and my doctor recommended I get a home blood pressure monitor to keep an eye on it. Can you offer me any tips on choosing a good one? Hypertensive Helen

Dear Helen, It’s a smart idea! Everyone with elevated or high blood pressure (stage 1 and higher) should consider getting a home blood pressure monitor. Home monitoring can help you keep tabs on your blood pressure in a comfortable setting. Plus, if you’re taking medication it will make certain it’s working, and alert you to a health problem if it arises. Here are some tips to help you choose a good monitor. Types of Monitors The two most popular types of home blood pressure monitors sold today are automatic arm monitors, and automatic wrist monitors that are electric and/or battery powered. With an automatic arm monitor, you simply wrap the cuff around your bicep and with the push of one button the cuff inflates and deflates au-

tomatically giving you your blood pressure reading on the display window in a matter of seconds. Wrist monitors work similarly, except they attach to the wrist. Wrist monitors are also smaller in weight and size, which makes them more portable, and a bit more comfortable to use than the arm monitors, but they tend to be a little less accurate. To help you choose the best monitor for you, here are several things to check into: Make sure it fits: Be sure the cuff fits the circumference of your upper arm. Using a cuff that’s the wrong size can result in an inaccurate reading. Most arm models have two sizes or an adjustable cuff that fits most people. Wrist models also fit most people. Choose one that’s easy to use: Be sure the display on the monitor is easy to read, and that the buttons are large. The directions for applying the cuff and operating the monitor should be clear. Consider what extra features you want: Many automatic monitors come with additional features such

as irregular heartbeat detection that checks for arrhythmias and other abnormalities; a risk category indicator that tells you whether your blood pressure is in the high range; a data-averaging function that allows you to take multiple readings and get an overall average; multiple user memory that allows two or more users to save their readings; and downloadable memory that lets you transmit your data to your computer or smartphone. Where to Buy You can find blood pressure monitors at pharmacies, medical supply stores or online, and you don’t need a prescription to buy one. Prices typically range between $40 and $100. In most cases, original Medicare will not cover a home blood pressure monitor, but if you have a Medicare Advantage plan or a private health insurance policy it’s worth checking into, because some plans may provide coverage.

looked like a Bo,” she said. “I looked up the characteristics of the name, and a couple of the adjectives are powerful and tough.” Jada Newton, ’21, student body president, is also very excited to meet Bo The Bulldog. “I think he represents the atmosphere coming into this new semester and year—a fresh start and a new perspective,” she observed. “Coming out of a crazy year, we are returning to the same Gardner-Webb campus but have a new youthful and optimistic perspective approaching our future with each other and at the University.” Bo is an English Bulldog from a breeder in Garner, N.C. The University plans to involve him in full-time activities with the enrollment team, alumni group, athletics teams and community groups as well. He will be a full-time ambassador for the Runnin’ Bulldogs. “When we first met our good boy in July, we knew right away he was something special,” observed Kim Kreuzman, GWU social media manager. “He was sweet, but also rambunctious—the perfect mix needed for his future role. To say we were excited to bring him home later that month would be an understatement. For students and the community, we know many of them were sad to hear that Roebuck would be retiring, but the joy of watching our puppy grow to become our much-loved mascot is exciting. He's got some big paws to fill, and he is already working on bulldog basics—sit, stay, and high-five!” A university staff member (and family) will serve as Bo’s caretakers and others across the campus community will be designated to provide daily attention, support and training for him. Hope Animal Hospital in Shelby, N.C., will provide veterinary services. Dr. Deanna Moseley Lawrence, a 1999 graduate of N.C. State University College of Veterinary Medicine in Raleigh, N.C., established Hope in June 2009 as a full-service small animal hospital that provides medical and surgical care. “We are excited to be Bo’s veterinarian and look


Gardner-Webb University’s new live mascot has a name. Bo was selected from more than 200 entries submitted for consideration. The new pup is engaged in basic etiquette training, before he officially begins his duties on Aug. 26. In the days ahead, GWU’s four-legged best friend will be a familiar sight to all on campus and in the community. “The start of a new academic year brings with it a sense of new energy and renewal, and nothing captures that spirit at Gardner-Webb better than the introduction of a new mascot,” explained GWU President Dr. William Downs. “Bo the Bulldog is a cute, lovable little puppy right now, but we know he’ll soon grow into a wonderful representation of the fun and fierceness that comes with GWU Athletics.” Downs added, “Historically, ‘Bo’ derives as a nickname meaning ‘to live’ or ‘living’—making it a perfect match for the infusion of life we’re bringing to this new era of Bulldog sports. ‘Bo’ is also solidly connected to football greatness (think Bo Jackson), to upbeat, lively music (think Bo Diddley), to a former First Dog of the United States (in the White House from 2009-2017), and to some of our favorite tailgating food (well, you know the restaurant). Fans of all ages will want to ‘Say Hello to Bo.’ We can’t wait to introduce him!” Chuck Burch, vice president for Athletics, also expressed his enthusiasm for the new canine ambassador. “The introduction of a live mascot in 2015 was well received by our alumni base, and continuing that tradition with a precocious new bulldog is a tremendous way to show our school spirit,” he remarked. “As our students return to campus, I am sure they will all welcome our new puppy with open arms.” One person on campus who is eager to meet Bo is Karen Davis, administrative assistant to the dean and copy cataloger in the GWU Library. After studying his picture and doing a little research, she submitted the name for consideration. “I thought the puppy
