KM Merchants prepare for continuing Streetscape project By Loretta Cozart When the Street-scape construction project get’s the go-ahead from NCDOT, accessing businesses along Battleground Avenue and Mountain Street may become difficult, if not impossible from the street front for periods of time due to construction. City of Kings Mountain’s Mainstreet Program urged owners to provide access to their buildings and businesses from the

back, because many have access from the Cherokee Street parking lot. Since the downtown was established, the area behind downtown has offered parking for those wishing to shop in that area. Before cars, the space was known as the hitching yard. Many building owners have embraced the idea and have gone beyond, providing access, with some of them making See MERCHANTS, Page 2A

NC Senate passes House Bill 805 to prevent rioting and disorder In a 25-19 vote on August 25, the North Carolina Senate passed House Bill TIM MOORE 805, a bill sponsored by House Speaker Tim Moore to prevent rioting and civil disorder. The bill is described as an act to increase the penalties for rioting or inciting

rioting that results in damage to property, serious bodily injury, or death and assaulting emergency personnel during a riot or state of emergency; to allow recovery of treble damages for property damage or personal injury caused by rioting or looting; and to require pretrial release conditions for rioting and looting offenses to be determined by a judge. On May 10, Representative Loftin proposed

Amendment A1 for page 2, line 6, rewriting that line to read, “Mere presence alone without an overt act is not sufficient to sustain a conviction pursuant to this section." House Speaker Tim Moore said, "I saw firsthand the violence and destruction caused by rioters right here in downtown Raleigh last year. What this bill does is enforce harsher penalties for the perpetrators of violence and loot-

ing, while preserving every North Carolinian's right to protest peacefully." He continued, "Our rights to free speech and assembly are precious and must be preserved, but never at the expense of harm to others. House Bill 805 simply ensures the safety of our citizens while upholding their rights to free speech and assembly." The bill will return to the House for concurrence.

Sheriff Norman offers tips for a safe Labor Day weekend With the approach of the Labor Day weekend, Cleveland C o u n t y SHERIFF ALAN Sheriff NORMAN Alan Norman asks all citizens to join him in making this Labor Day holiday period a happy and enjoyable one for all. Traditionally during the Labor Day holiday, highways experience one of the highest traffic flows of the year. The sheriff reminds all Cleveland County residents to follow these safety tips:

• Always shift your attention every few seconds, constantly scanning the road ahead and behind you. Never blankly stare ahead nor fix your gaze on one point on the road. • When passing an automobile, always glance at the ground beside the front wheel of the car you intend to pass. You will know instantly if the car is about to veer - giving you extra seconds to respond. • You should pull out into the opposite lane of traffic when passing while you are still well behind the car in front. This should give you some time and space to build up speed and will enable you

to pull back into your own lane should the need arise. Never cut abruptly out of your lane into the opposite lane when passing. • Always signal your intentions with your brake lights, turn signals, horn and/or headlights so that other drivers will see you well before you change course. • Drivers should always “aim high” in steering. That is, you should glance frequently at points well ahead of you. Not only will this help your steering, but it will also help you check the position of vehicles in front of you as well as on-coming ones.

• Never follow too close. Remember that, as your speed increases, it takes you substantially longer to stop. Also remember that it’s good to have an extra cushion of space in front of you if you’re being tail-gated, on a slippery road, or in low visibility conditions. “Lastly, I would remind all motorists to practice the Golden Rule when driving. Be courteous and tolerant of other drivers. Please don’t get angry with bad drivers or reckless ones – just get out of their way,” Sheriff Norman said in closing, “Let’s make this Labor Day weekend a safe one on the roads in Cleveland County.”

On the road, on the water, don’t drink and drive NC State Highway Patrol, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving North Carolina will continue their combined campaign, “On the Road, On the Water, Don’t Drink and Drive” with events and safety checkpoints throughout the state on Labor Day Weekend. The multi-agency safety initiative works to reduce alcohol-related incidents on the state’s roadways and waterways, both of which see increased traffic during holidays. “If your Labor Day weekend plans include drinking alcohol, it’s imperative to designate a sober driver whether you’re in a vehicle or on a boat,” said Lieutenant Forrest Orr of the Wildlife Commission. “A sober operator greatly improves your chances of a safe and incident-free experience on both the road and in the water.” While wildlife law enforcement officers will be patrolling

public waterways, the NCSHP will be working in concert on the roads. “Our continued partnership with N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is essential to ensuring this Labor Day weekend is a celebration for all and not one that ends in tragedy,” said Colonel Freddy L. Johnson Jr., commander of the State Highway Patrol. “Whether it is a Trooper on the roadways or a Wildlife Officer on the water, our combined lifesaving efforts through education and enforcement make a difference every day and this dedicated work is undoubtedly saving lives.” In North Carolina, a driver or vessel operator with a blood-alcohol concentration that meets or exceeds .08 or is substantially impaired by alcohol and/ or drugs is subject to arrest.

Roseberry’s hearing postponed Gaston County man charged Floyd R a y Roseberry, of Grover, attended a competency h e a r i n g ROSEBERRY on August 25 in a Washington, D.C. to determine if he is fit to stand trial. He attended the hear-

ing remotely. Roseberry facies multiple federal charges after a five-hour standoff with police outside the Library of Congress on August 19. He was arrested without incident. A doctor for Roseberry argued that more time was needed to determine Roseberry’s competency. Dr. Teresa Grant, a psychologist for the D.C. Depart-

ment of Behavioral Health, suggested further screening was necessary. Roseberry, who is being treated for bipolar disorder, had been given medications that didn’t help with the disorder, according to the doctor. It was decided that Roseberry will be held for an additional 30-days. He will be assessed, and court will reconvene on September 22.

Sellers Market driving KM home prices up, up, up By Loretta Cozart T h e Herald inadvertently ran the draft of this article last week, instead of the final CHRIS JOLLY version. Chris Jolly helped with the article, and we are grateful for his insight. We are running the correct version this week. We regret this error. The median sales price for single-family homes in Kings Mountain has risen an astonishing 40.8% in the last 12 months. With the opening of the casino, many speculate the reason for the increase in home costs happened because of the announcement. Chris Jolly, licensed NC Realtor® and owner of Jolly Realty Group, suggests the reason has less to do with the casino and more to do with a lack of inventory. Looking at MLS listings for July 2018, Kings Mountain had 194 properties available for purchase. In July 2019, there were only 161 properties listed. By 2020, 151 were offered, and as of August 15, there are just 140 residential listings. Of those

140 properties, only 28 aren’t already under contract.** If you were to need a house now in Kings Mountain, you would have less than 30 houses from which to choose. Jolly explains, “We have a very hot seller’s market right now with historically low interest rates creating very strong and competitive buyer activity.” A lot of that activity comes from homeowners who look to take advantage of the increase in positive equity from the sale of their home and use that to upgrade their homes with little, or in some cases no increase, in their monthly payment due to the lower cost of lending. A supply and demand issue are created when sellers are hesitant to list their home for sale for fear of selling their house before they have found the home that suits their needs. These shoppers are checking for new listings daily, and when the right one comes on the market, they make an offer with the intention of selling their current residence to qualify for a new mortgage. When a buyer offers this way, most feel the need to make their offers as strong as possible in hopes that the seller chooses them. You see increases in purchase

price, due diligence fees, etc. “When this happens for an extended period, real estate agents can see the trends, we have sold/closed comparable properties and value listings with the most up to date information available, which reflects the current trends of the market,” Jolly shared. “While low inventory supply has affected many markets across the country, there are a couple different factors that I believe are driving people to Kings Mountain, specifically.” “Affordability is becoming a major concern for a lot of cities and counties in our area. Even with the recent increase in values, Kings Mountain is still an affordable place to live. We are seeing situations where homeowners are frustrated with congestion from the high rate of development in cities like Charlotte and Belmont. A lot of those people find Kings Mountain and realize its affordable, with great access to I-85 and Highway 74,” said Jolly. “Another large factor into the rise of interest in Kings Mountain is due to the Covid19 pandemic. With an incredible amount of people now working remotely, it’s easier than ever for families to move a little further away from their physical office, and we

are seeing a lot of people from Charlotte, who now work from home, looking for homes in our area. As lockdowns and mandates started happening last year, I think it influenced people to seek out less congested areas to live,” he said. “Lastly, I believe this city is finally seeing the fruits of its labor. Major downtown revitalization continues, and our Special Events department has done an incredible job getting Kings Mountain ‘on the map’, through the many events, concerts, and Christmas festivities it’s hosted over the last few years. We are seeing more people come into Kings Mountain than ever before.” Jolly concludes, “Once they see how many boxes the city checks for them, it’s just really hard to say no to Kings Mountain right now.” Important note to readers - Jolly states that each individual property is unique, and that values will vary with each property.

Cleveland Community College mandates masks inside facilities By Loretta Cozart Cleveland Community College now requires the use of masks inside its facilities. “Due to the increase in COVID-related illnesses throughout our county, CCC’s COVID19 Response Team has determined the best way to keep our Yeti family safe is to require masks inside all CCC facilities. The requirement will take effect Monday, August 23.” A statement on their website states, “We hope this will be a temporary measure, but our priority is keeping our Yeti family safe. Right now, that means wearing masks.

Combating Fear Sometimes, I think people forget that we are in a spiritual battle - Righteousness vs. Wickedness. The devil is counting on individuals not being aware DANYALE PATTERSON of his game plan of destruction, division, and death. He wants us to be distracted by the frivolous while he incorporates his diabolical agenda. Apostle Paul warns us to open our eyes! He states in Ephesians 6:1213 (ESV), “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against

the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” In other words, we need to always ask the Holy Spirit for discernment when we listen to the media, politics, and people in general. We need to ask ourselves: “Is what I’m hearing in alignment with scripture? Does this please the Lord? Is what I’m listening to producing peace and righteousness, or chaos and turmoil?” A Sneaky Approach The devil is very strategic with his methods. One technique he uses is releasing the spirit of fear. Fear’s purpose is to intimidate, bully, and put people into paralyzing bondage.

Wednesday, September 1, 2021

However, the bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV), “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Strategies to Combat the Spirit of Fear The Lord doesn’t want us to sit back and be bamboozled by fear. He wants us to fight back! Through Jesus Christ, we are victorious and more than conquerors. Here are a few strategies to put fear in its place: • Rebuke it in the name of Jesus. For example, say “Spirit of fear, I resist you and cast you out of my life, home, and family in the name of Jesus - and don’t come back! The blood of Jesus is more powerful than you and covers me and my entire family.” • Memorize and meditate on scriptures of Peace and Faith. • Spend time declaring scriptures and make them personal. For exam-

ple, with the scripture Psalm 91 say: “I dwell in the secret place of the Most High God…” etc. • Take a sabbatical from the negative reports of TV, social media, and people, or limit how much you listen to each day. PRAY THIS PRAYER: “Lord, I praise you as the God of Peace. Please forgive me for allowing the problems of the world to be more real than you in my life. Drive fear out of my heart and life. Comfort me by your Holy Spirit and your Word. Help me to believe and focus on you more than anything else. Fill me with your peace and love. Father, please remind me to look to the hills from where my help comes from. My help comes from you - the One who created heaven and earth. May I keep my eyes on you and zero in on your Holy Word. In Jesus’ name - Amen.”

Mountaineers at Burns Friday

Sel Randolph catches a pass from Lamont Littlejohn in Friday’s win at Asheville. Photos by Charlie Smith

Mountaineers blank Cougars 14-0 Although the final score may not indicate it, Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers had a dominating performance Friday in Asheville as they shutout the host Cougars 14-0 in a non-conference football game. The Mountaineer defense was strong all night, except for Asheville’s only potential scoring drive to open the second half. In the fourth quarter the Cougars ran only three running plays for minus seven yards and completed one of three passes for minus one yard. The Mountaineers’ offense struggled at times as well, missing a couple other scoring opportunities, but it was more than enough to nail down their first win of the season. Asheville dropped to 0-2. “I was really pleased with our effort,” said KM coach Greg Lloyd. “We played fair on both sides of the ball. I thought we could have easily had 28 points in the first half but we had some self-inflicted wounds that hurt us. Minus a couple of plays we had a good first half.” The Mountaineers piled

Caleb Holland follows his blocking to lead the rushing attack for the Mountaineers in Friday’s 14-0 win at Asheville. up 180 yards rushing, led by junior running back Caleb Holland who gained 98 in 16 carries before leaving the game with an injury. Quarterback Lamont Littlejohn and running back Zavion Smith completed nine passes for 150 yards. With not a whole lot of penalties being called, the game went fast except on a couple occasions when it

had to be stopped for injury timeouts. One was for Holland, and another for Asheville’s starting quarterback Khalil Conley. Neither returned to the game. “Our defense played a lot better than we did the previous week,” Lloyd noted. “We found some new guys. Seth Neil moved in at defensive tackle and really helped us.” With Kings Mountain

up 14-0 at the time of Holland’s injury, the Mountaineers got a dominating performance by its defense and good offensive production from the entire line that helped them control the clock. The Mountaineers drove the opening kickoff to the Asheville 16 before losing a fumble. But, they forced an Asheville punt late in See COUGARS, Page 2B

Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers face another undefeated Cleveland County rival when they travel to Fallston Friday for a 7:30 battle with the Burns Bulldogs. In their first two outings, the Bulldogs edged two very good Big South Conference teams – Gastonia Forestview 8-6 and the Crest Chargers 21-20. Kings Mountain carries a 1-1 record into the non-conference encounter, losing to Shelby 37-14 in the season opener and then shutting out Asheville’s Cougars 14-0 last week. Mountaineer head coach Greg Lloyd knows the Bulldogs will be another big test for his young Mountaineers and is looking for a tight game. “Burns is a very solid ball team,” Lloyd says. “I think they are one of the better teams around. They have good athletes and they beat a good Crest team. They are 2-0 and have a lot going for them.” The Bulldogs hope to give perennial champion Shelby a battle for the 1A/2A Southwestern Conference championship. In the new NCHSAA realignment, South Point

left the SWC for the 3A Big South Conference and 1A schools like Highland Tech, Cherryville and Bessemer City will be battling much bigger teams Burns and Shelby. “Burns is going to be tough to beat,” said Coach Lloyd. “I know they will be anxious to give us their best shot.” The Bulldogs have been led in their first two games by 6-1 sophomore quarterback Ben Mauney. “He is a real accurate passer and he has good receivers,” Lloyd pointed out. “They are also very good on defense. Thy run a 4-3. They held Crest down. They’re going to be tough to move the ball on.” Kings Mountain will be playing without its leading rusher, junior Caleb Holland, who had 98 yards rushing before going down to injury in the second half last week at Asheville. “He had a good game going before he got hurt,” Lloyd said. “He had some big eight, 10 and 12 yard runs. “Zavon Smith and Robert Kendrick did a good job, too,” Lloyd noted and See BURNS, Page 2B

Parsons, Key receive awards at XC Carnival Kings Mountain High’s cross country teams had 23 runners participate in Friday’s Western North Carolina Cross Country Carnival. Part of a new tradition was to recognize two individuals who had volunteered helping their community. The award was given in honor of former runner, Riley Howell, who lost his life protecting others at UNC Charlotte. Kings Mountain’s

award winners were Abby Parsons and Parker Key who proudly wore orange t-shirts in his memory. In the girls invitational race, Thalia Kushman led the Mountaineer women with a 17th place finish in 24:13. The girls team finished eighth. In the boys race, KM’s Parker Key was a medalist with a sixth place finish in 18:56. The boys team also finished eighth.

JVs blank Asheville, Burns here Thursday Kings Mountain’s JVs put up a balanced offensive and defensive attack to shutout the visiting Asheville JVs 19-0 in their first home game Thursday night at John Gamble Stadium. The win gives the Mountaineers a 1-1 record heading into another home game Thursday at 7 p.m. against the Burns Bulldogs. The defense took control early when Sincere Lanier intercepted an Asheville pass on the game’s sixth play from scrimmage. Kings Mountain took possession at the Asheville 41 but couldn’t move the ball and had to punt. But, the KM defense stepped right up again and got a pass interception by Matthew Pennington that gave the

Mountaineers possession at the Cougar 20. Two plays later Kameron Adams rambled around the left side for a 25-yard touchdown and a 6-0 Mountaineer lead. That score stood for the rest of the first half. Lanier’s pass interception and 15 yard return to the Asheville 20 put the KM offense in great scoring position again. Thomas Fair scored from five yards out with 1:40 on the third quarter clock to put the Mountaineers up 12-0. That score stood until the 3:23 mark of the fourth quarter when the Mountaineers got a 13yard run from Adams and a conversion kick by Max Thompson to account for the final margin. Asheville’s only se-

Along the way Littlejohn hit passes of 22 yards to Sel Randolph and 26 yards to Jake Lloyd, and Holland ran eight times for 27 yards. Zavion Smith also had an end sweep for 10 yards and a first down. On the Cougars’ next possession, AJ Richardson came up with a big quarterback sack for an eight-yard loss that forced the Cougars to punt from their own 27. Randolph took a quick swing pass from Littlejohn and rambled 34 yards to the Asheville 21. Facing third and 16 from the 27 yard line, Littlejohn threw a backward pass in the flat to Smith who hit Deandre Hoyle all alone down the KM sideline for a touchdown. Ellis’ PAT rounded

out the scoring with 5:04 left in the half. Hoyle’s pass interception gave KM another scoring opportunity, and with the help of three straight carries for 39 yards by Holland and a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against the Cougars KM was able to get to the Cougar four before a 15-yard intentional grounding penalty set them back. Ellis’ 35-yard field goal attempt with 6.5 seconds left on the first half clock was wide. Asheville had its only TD threatening drive to begin the second half, moving from its own 28 to the KM 15 before being stopped inches short of a first down on a fourth and one run. “In the third quarter we sort of bent but didn’t break,” Lloyd noted. “But, overall I was pleased. It was a long ride and a hot night, but we played well and it was a big win for us.”

From Page 1B he believes they will continue to play well. “I’m really happy with the way we’re progressing,” he said. “I thought our special teams did a re-




ally good job and Peyton Fisher is doing a good job punting. “I thought Seth Neil did a really good job at defensive tackle Friday,” he added. “He really helped us. He caused Asheville’s offense a lot of problems.”

Gov. Cooper requests disaster declaration for western NC counties F r i d a y , Governor Roy Cooper requested that Presi d e n t B i d e n GOV. COOPER issue a federal major disaster declaration following

Tropical Storm Fred for western North Carolina counties that suffered extensive damages from flooding and landslides. “The people of Western North Carolina took a devastating blow from Tropical Storm Fred’s flooding,” said Gov. Cooper. “Federal assistance is needed to help rebuild

and become more resilient ahead of future storms.” The Governor requested the Individual Assistance program to support homeowners and renters in Buncombe, Haywood and Transylvania counties and the Public Assistance program to reimburse costs for repairs to public facilities and

infrastructure in Avery, Buncombe, Haywood, Madison, Transylvania, Yancey, and Watauga counties. If granted, the Individual Assistance program provides financial assistance and direct services to eligible individuals and households affected by disaster.

Public Assistance provides reimbursement to local governments and publicly owned utilities for the costs for debris removal, life-saving emergency protective measures and the repair, replacement or restoration of disaster-damaged publicly owned facilities and the facilities of certain

private nonprofit organizations. Five people died because of the storm and one person remains missing. Damage assessment is still underway, but so far damages are estimated to exceed $20 million to infrastructure alone across the western counties.

New state law ends marriage before age of 16 Friday, Governor Cooper signed into law SB 35, ending marriage before the age of 16-years of age in North Carolina. The only caveat would be that a 16 - or 17-year-old would have to provide proof that their partner is no more than four years older. The law reads, “Persons over 16 years of age

and under 18 years of age may marry a person no more than four years older, and the register of

deeds may issue a license for the marriage, only after there has been filed with the register of deeds a certified copy of an order issued by a district court authorizing the marriage as provided under G.S. 51-2.1, or a written consent to the marriage, said consent having been signed by the appropriate person as follows:

• By a parent having full or joint legal custody of the underage party; or • By a person, agency, or institution having legal custody or serving as a guardian of the underage party. Such written consent shall not be required for an emancipated minor if a certificate of emancipation issued pursuant to

Article 35 of Chapter 7B of the General Statutes or a certified copy of a final decree or certificate of emancipation from this or any other jurisdiction is filed with the register of deeds. (b) It shall be unlawful for any person under 16 years of age to marry. (c) When a license to marry is procured by any person under 18 years of age by fraud or misrepresentation, a parent of the underage party, a person, agency, or institution having legal custody or serving as a guardian of the underage party, or a guardian ad litem appointed to represent the underage party pursuant to G.S. 51-2.1(b) is a proper party to bring an action to annul the marriage." Regarding SB 35, Governor Cooper said, “This legislation is an important step toward ending child marriage in North Carolina and instituting more protections for children. While it falls short of raising the age of marriage to

18, it will make our state a safer place for children.” On August 11, the North Carolina House of Representatives passed HB 41 to end child marriage in North Carolina. Dr. Kristin Baker (R-Cabarrus) and Rep. Ashton Wheeler Clemmons (D-Guilford) are both sponsors of House Bill 41 and made the following statements about its passage. Dr. Baker said, "Research indicates that people who marry as minors face increased dropout rates from both high school and college, increased medical and mental health problems, and markedly increased likelihood of future poverty. This bill raises the age of marriage to 16. It also sets limits on age gaps for marriage of minors ages 16 and 17, thus serving as a deterrent for those who would target North Carolina as a destination state for human trafficking."

Atrium Health, NCDHHS, and HHS partner to expand access to monoclonal antibody therapy to treat COVID-19 patients On August 26, A t r i u m Health, in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS),

announced today that it has exp a n d e d access to out-patient COVID-19 monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatments and is now administering the therapy at three of its locations. For people who

have recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus who are at high risk for developing severe COVID19 illness, or those who are unvaccinated and have been exposed to someone who has tested positive, this promising mAb treatment has been shown to help prevent progression of the dis-

ease that might otherwise require hospitalization. If administered within the first week of COVID19 symptoms onset, the one-time therapy is highly effective in neutralizing the virus and preventing symptoms from worsening. The treatment is administered through intravenous infu-

sion, delivering medication directly into a patient’s bloodstream. “As an organization dedicated to shaping health outcomes through innovative research, education and compassionate patient care, we are honored to be able to offer three treatment facilities for monoclonal

antibody infusions to treat COVID-19,” said Dr. Lisa Davidson, an infectious disease physician at Atrium Health in Charlotte. In response to the growing COVID-19 case rates and the rapid spread of the Delta variant, Atrium Health has expanded access See ATRIUM, Page 8B


Little Know Social Security Program Helps Seniors Manage Their Money Dear Savvy Senior, Does Social Security offer any special help to beneficiaries who struggle managing their benefits? My aunt, who has no children, has dementia and struggles keeping up with her bills and other financial duties. Inquiring Niece Dear Inquiring, Yes, Social Security actually has a little-known program known as the “representative payee program” that helps beneficiaries who need help managing their Social Security benefit payments. Here’s what you should know. Representative Payee Program Authorized by congress back in 1939, the Social Security representative payee program provides money management help to beneficiaries who are incapable of managing their Social Security income. Beneficiaries in need of this help are often seniors suffering from dementia, or minor children who are collecting Social Security survivors’ benefits. Currently more than 5 million Social Security beneficiaries have representative payees.

Representative payees also handle benefits for nearly 3 million recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a Social Security administered benefit program for low-income people who are over 65, blind or disabled. Who Are Payees? A representative payee is typically a relative or close friend of the beneficiary needing assistance, but Social Security can also name an organization or institution for the role – like a nursing homes or social-service agency. Some of duties of a representative payee include: • Using the beneficiary’s Social Security or SSI payments to meet their essential needs, such as food, shelter, household bills and medical care. The money can also be used for personal needs like clothing and recreation. • Keeping any remaining money from benefit payments in an interest-bearing bank account or savings bonds for the beneficiary’s future needs. • Keeping records of benefit payments received and how the money was spent or saved. • Reporting to Social Security any changes or events that could affect the

beneficiary’s payments (for example, a move, marriage, divorce or death). • Reporting any circumstances that affect the payee’s ability to serve in the role. As a representative payee, you cannot combine the beneficiary’s Social Security payments with your own money or use them for your own needs. The bank account into which benefits are deposited should be fully owned by the beneficiary, with the payee listed as financial agent. Some payees, generally those who do not live with the beneficiary, are required to submit annual reports to Social Security accounting for how benefits are used. For more information on the responsibilities and restrictions that come with the role, see the Social Security publication “A Guide for Representative Payees” at SSA. gov/pubs/EN-05-10076.pdf. How to Get Help If you believe your aunt may need a representative payee, call Social Security at 800-772-1213 and make an appointment to discuss the matter at her local office. Applying to serve as a payee usually requires a face-to-face

interview. Social Security may consider other evidence in deciding if a beneficiary needs a payee and selecting the person to fill the role, including doctors’ assessments and statements from relatives, friends and others in a position to give an informed opinion about the beneficiary’s situation. You should also know that if you become your aunt’s representative payee you cannot collect a fee for doing it. However, some organizations that serve in the role do receive fees, paid out of the beneficiary’s Social Security or SSI payments. For more information on the program visit Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

ATRIUM From Page 7B to the mAb infusion at multiple locations across the Charlotte region increasing the number of patients who can be treated each day. As part of this initiative, Atrium Health plans to more than double capacity with the goal to continue to further expand treatment access as demand warrants. “As Delta variant cases continue to rise in North Carolina, this treatment option offers a solution to

help care for COVID-positive patients while also preventing the spread of the virus, although vaccination is still the best way to curb further spread of COVID-19,” Davidson added.
