A months-long undercover drug sting by Kings Mountain Police has resulted in 76 criminal charges against 20 people, 17 of them who live in or near Kings Mountain. Police Chief Melvin Proctor, Det.

K9 puts fugitive behind bars Carroll faces charges in three counties after alleged short life on the lam EMILY WEAVER Editor

Thursday, March 1 - After allegedly touting he would not be taken alive, 26year-old Ricky Lewis Carroll, Jr., on the lam and facing charges in two counties, was retrieved by the jaws of a K9 from his hiding spot underneath a mobile home in Lincoln County. Carroll, of 105 First Street in Kings Mountain, was wanted on a number of warrants in RICKY CARROLL Gaston and Cleveland counties. He was booked in the Cleveland County Detention Center on Thursday and was being held under a $210,500 secured bond. Federal marshals reportedly received a tip that the fugitive was staying at a mobile home in the 400 block of Lineberger Road. Officers believe he had been staying there about a month. After officers arrived at the scene, a Lincoln County K9 reportedly sniffed out the suspect, alerting officers to a hole burrowed out underneath the mobile home. Lincoln County Sheriff David Carpenter said that the ordeal lasted about 30 minutes and officers at the scene warned Carroll that if he wouldn't come out that the police K9 would be sent under the home after him. Carpenter said the K9 bit Carroll's left buttock and dragged him from underneath the house. The suspect was unarmed at the time. Lincoln County EMS was called to the scene to treat the suspect for dog bites. This was a "well handled arrest", Carpenter said. Three other people in the residence See FUGITIVE, 5A

tion Sudden Impact would continue - as long as it takes. Eight people were arrested Thursday morning and by 5:30 p.m. and during the weekend seven more had been arrested and warrants secured for five others. Proctor said her detectives won't stop until all drug offenders are in jail. She vowed to continue fighting the sale of illegal drugs and the illicit sale of prescription medicine. Police branded the sting, "Operation Sudden Impact." and Chief Proctor explained that "the sudden impact on our community is to tell these people again, We don't want you

here." He added, "My message to drug dealers is to stop your trade, become a productive citizen of Kings Mountain or leave town. "Otherwise we'll put you in jail". Sgt. Proctor said the suspects had sources both inside and outside the city. "We do have a lot of drugs that come in from outside the city limits," she said. Arrested were: Kristen Kennedy, 25, 208 Thornburg Dr., two counts each of possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a Schedule II controlled substance and selling or delivering a Schedule II controlled substance.

Police: no suspect in Saturday slaying A grieving Kings Mountain family is in shock at the murder of their father. Family members told The Herald that Joseph Durant (Danny) Moses, 52, always locked his door but Saturday night he opened his door to a killer who police say is still on the loose. Captain Derek Johnson said that Kings Mountain Police have some leads in the homicide but no suspects. Anyone with information is DANNY MOSES asked to call the Kings Mountain Police Department at 704-734-0444. Two daughters and their families have good memories of a father and grandfather who liked to shoot pool with friends, play his guitar and by all accounts was a good neighbor. Danny Moses loved bike riding with his wife who died on her motorcycle in an accident while they were enjoying a fun afternoon in 1999. "Mom had her own bike and Dad had a bike and they loved riding motorcycles," a daughter said. Kings Mountain Police say Moses was found shot to death Saturday, March 3, at 7:39 p.m. at his home at 319 Walnut Street in Kings Mountain. Moses had lived in Kings Mountain nearly all his life. A native of Cleveland County, he was the son of Margie Starnes Moses of Kings Mountain and the late S/Sgt. M. P. US Army See POLICE, 3A

Starting Wednesday, Feb. 29, St. Matthew's will host a series of 25-minute lessons on The Apostles' Creed, a living link that takes us over centuries to the Early Church. Church doors will open each Wednesday for Lenten Supper at 6 p.m., followed by a Lenten study of the Apostles' Creed at 6:30 and vespers (about 20 minutes) at 7:10 p.m. Dr. Timothy Lull, Lutheran Bible scholar and theologian at Pacific Lutheran Seminary in Berkley, California, will present the study via DVD.

Ashes remind us of an important truth ■ MEDITATION

Dr. Jeff Hensley Pastor Kings Mountain Baptist Church Like so many other congregations, last week several members of my church gathered to observe “Ash Wednesday” and impose ashes on our foreheads. Now many denominations of Christians observe this important occasion that begins the time of repentance known as “Lent,” but not as many of them are Baptist Christians. Why is that?

One reason why a limited number of Baptists observe Ash Wednesday is because it involves a ritual act – the imposition of ashes – and Baptists tend to shy away from ritual. Baptists shy away from ritual for fear that it may easily be freighted with more significance than seems appropriate. This is one reason why Baptist Christians don’t believe in “sacraments,” but prefer instead to practice “ordinances,” with the belief that our Lord has “ordered” us to practice certain activities of worship. Personally, I think the practical reason why many Baptists see ritual actions in a skeptical light is because there is always the tendency for believers to practice a ritual on the outside, while failing to truly embrace faith in God and Christ on the inside. A Dutch pastor named Klaus Hendrikse is a case in point. Hendrikse is one of a growing number of pastors in Europe who want to hold on to the external trappings or rituals of Christianity but jettison the beliefs of our faith at the same time. You see, Hendrikse, and other pastors like him, is actually an atheist who believes that

Christianity provides helpful moral guidance, but that Christian faith ought to be merely a human-centered tradition rather than a God-inspired transformation of the heart. Of course, Hendrikse is an example of one extreme. At the other end of the spectrum are those believers – many of them Baptists – who feel that many long-practiced rituals of Christian worship are nothing more than “mere” rituals, which can easily be dispensed with. But this is certainly no more true than is the idea that ritual alone is enough to make one a Christian. If rituals meant nothing to us then we would not bother with ceremonial actions during weddings, or symbolic behaviors at funerals. The truth is that, properly practiced, a ritual action can add meaning to our lives. For example, when my son was married last fall, his fiancé planned to use in their wedding a ritual act called “unity sand.” The unity sand includes two different colors of sand, which are poured together with a white sand that represents God. The result is a multi-colored form of sand art that ritually and beauti-

fully symbolizes the nature of Christian marriage. Although the ash of Ash Wednesday is nothing special in and of itself, like other ritual actions of Christian worship, the imposition of it on the foreheads of believers is a reminder of an

important spiritual truth that all believers need to remember. That truth is that all of us are sinners who are in need of the unchanging love and grace of God. This is a truth that all of us should be pondering prayerfully during the season of Lent.

PLAY: ‘School House Rock, Live! Jr.’ premieres this weekend FROM Page 1 Walega said that “while ‘School House Rock’ feeds the minds and imaginations of children, some of our local children need more - so we will also be collecting non-perishable food item donations for the Kings Mountain Crisis Ministry at every performance.�

The play cast includes 11 students and a 12-member ensemble of students. The setting is a few years back - the Age of Aquarius. There is no intermission and the play is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International. The new roomy seats are 23 inches wide and are covered in burgundy and

gold fabric made at Dicey Fabrics. The transformation of the Joy has opened the space and enhanced and updated the building’s Art Deco design with exposed brick, wainscoting, crown molding and soffit. Sound dampening material will improve acoustics in the auditorium which also has new paint and carpet.

FUGITIVE: nabbed by K9 under Lincoln County mobile home FROM Page 1 were arrested on charges of misdemeanor harboring a fugitive. They were identified as Taylor R. Wilhelm, 19, of 107 Diana Road, Cherryville; Jessica Ann Bowen, 24, of 108 Churchill Drive, Kings Mountain; and, Jeremy Shane Huffman, 23, of 491 Lineberger Road, Lincolnton. Bowen, Huffman and Wilhelm were placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $2,000 secured bond. In Cleveland County, Carroll faces two counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a government official, two counts of chop shop activity, chop shop activity with altered VIN (vehicle identification numbers), possession of vehicles / parts without manufactures numbers; two counts of reckless driv-

ing to endanger, larceny of a motor vehicle, assault on a female, assault by strangulation, possession of stolen goods / property, possession of stolen motor vehicle, failure to appear, two counts of resisting a public officer, three felony probation violations, two felony probation violations out of county, three counts of fleeing and eluding arrest in a motor vehicle, eluding arrest in a motor vehicle with aggravating factors, failure to heed to an emergency light or siren, four counts of driving while license revoked, unsafe passing on a yellow line, hit and run with failure to stop for property damages, and speeding. In Lincoln County, he was charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer. Last year, Carroll faced warrants out of Rutherford County on charges of resisting, delaying and obstructing an of-

ficer, driving while license revoked and fleeing to elude arrest. Lincoln County Sheriff's Office apprehended the suspect with help from the Gaston County Police Department, the North Carolina Highway Patrol, and the U.S. Marshal Service. In April 2010, Carroll was arrested with seven other Kings Mountain men, who faced 25 charges after the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office busted an auto theft "chop shop" - a ring, which deputies said targeted 1994-2002 Honda Civics and Acura Integras. Authorities said that the cars were either stripped for parts to be sold online or to build and soup up new cars for racing purposes. In May 2010, Gaston County Police charged Carroll with two counts of possession of a stolen vehicle and felony conspiracy.

TEXTILE: plant still growing, adding jobs in sour economy FROM Page 1 months and the company's planned expansion will add 62 full time positions over a three year period. President John Kay, who is the fourth generation member of his family in the textile business, said the company is investing $5 million dollars in its three year expansion program, also producing chenille and taslan to support its weaving operation. Kings Plush, operating as its branding name STI, supplies furniture manufacturers who sell its materials to retailers all over the United States, Canada, Mexico and Nicaragua. - specifically body cloth for sofas, pillows, and recliners for the furniture industry. "We are ahead and a a little behind on our three year expansion plan but we're getting our equipment in now for the first of the two phase project," said Kay.

Construction of a 32,000 square foot addition will begin this summer on the spacious plant campus on Marie Street. Kings Plush, Inc, a Kings Mountain industry since 1964, branded the company as Specialty Textiles. Kay, originally from Philadelphia, Pa., earned his undergraduate degree in textile engineering from Philadelphia University and his master's in Business Education from Rider University. Phase I of the expansion will be to build a 32,000 square foot manufacturing plant and install chenille frames in its current facility, adding 23 positions. Phase 2 will be to add more frames, growing its production of taslan and chenille yarns, creating 15 jobs. In the final phase, 24 jobs wold be available as machines are moved into the new facility.. "It's exciting to see this company continue to be suc-

cessful and on the cutting edge of the textile industry," said Mayor Rick Murphrey who called on Kings Plush for years as a sales executive for Spectrum Dyed Yarns. "All these plants like Spectrum and others closed down over the years so it's forced us to do more on the supplier chain in manufacturing our own yarns," said Kay. "We'll still do the weaving and finishing just like we've been dong but instead of relying on factories overseas or market uncertainties STI will have its supply on hand and in- house. Kay said the company is targeting domestic services to turn out a faster product. STI is the largest residential upholstery manufacturer of promotional furniture and its woven specialty fabrics are stretched over furniture that sits on the showrooms of big retailers such as Rooms to Go, Value City and Badcock.

Said Kay, "This furniture is built sort of like Henry Ford built cars," pointing to a photo of furniture built "Ford tough" but softened up by STI's Kings Plush fabrics. It's one of many items Made in America with Kings Mountain fabrics that grace the floors of showrooms nationwide. Kay showed a newspaper advertisement showing Badcock Furniture which displayed the STI Kings Mountain product. Murphrey said the city will be acting on an incentive to help secure the jobs STI expects to create with expansion. Last September STI received a $56,000 jobs grant from One North Carolina Fund. The company's blueprint for present and future success is very simple. According to management STI is ready to spend the necessary capital and keep making what customers want and what the market wants at the best possible value and delivering it quickly.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are NOT ADVERTISING in the Kings Mountain Herald you are LOSING BUSINESS!â&#x20AC;? Rob Nivens, Oak Grove Auto Sales & Service Q. You are advertising bi-weekly. Why is it important to you advertise that often? A. Different people are always looking at the paper and I want to be there for them to see. You have to keep your name out there and be specific about what you offer and why you are the best choice. And, seeing my business name alone is not always going to bring people to my door. Potential customers need to know what services you have to offer them and how they are better or more affordable than someone else's.

Keeping Kids Safe chors; Use the stove's back burners and turn pot handles toward the back of the stove; Install toilet locks to keep toilet lids closed. Children are more top-heavy than adults and can lean and fall into a toilet easily. They also can drown in just one inch of water; Install anti-scalding devices on faucets and shower heads to prevent burns. Also set the water heater thermostat to 120 degrees; Unplug hair dryers and electric rollers after use; Put visual reminders like the Mr. Yuk stickers from poison prevention centers on potential poisonous or hazardous items.

Haroldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Weekly Health Tip... Install safety latches on all cabinets and drawers; Cover unused electrical outlets with outlet protectors or safety caps; Use safety gates at the top and bottom of stairs; Place furniture away from high windows so children won't climb onto windowsills. Screens aren't strong enough to keep children from falling through windows; Make sure window blinds do not have looped cords -- they can be strangulation hazards for children; Remove freefalling lids from toy chests; Prevent furniture from tipping by securing bookcases, shelving, and heavy furniture to walls with brackets and an-

printmaking and pottery. Peggy Baird won first p lace for hand quilting a large quilt. Ann Bennett won first place for hand quilting a small quilt.

clubhouse March 18 at 2 p.m. to sort items and prepare for the event to which the public is encouraged to attend. Membership chair Johann Sherrill suggested that members mentor new members.

Ingram paying it forward

On Saturday, March 10, across from Bridges Hardware on Cansler Street, he will open the doors to his very own EMILY WEAVER barber shop with a new goal Editor - to prosper and help others At the age of 44, Paul In- do the same. Tarbarac Bell, a profesgram went back to school to sional stylist joining Ingram learn a new trade with three at the shop, plans to learn as goals ahead of him: pass his much as he can about the

Opens shop Saturday to help others do the same

business in hopes of one day having a place of his own. "This is going to be a great experience because from the start we went to school together and have had the opportunity to work together," Tarbarac said. The two first met on the court. Ingram has refereed local basketball games for 28 years. Tarbarac played for Kings Mountain. But they really got to know each other attending Just For You Barber Styling Academy in Charlotte, where Ingram, the oldest in his class, began to feel a bit out of place until he made friends with Tarbarac. Friends are important to Ingram. Photos he took with superstar Michael Jordan - a dear friend - are taped on the mirrors of his new shop. Everyone of his friends, some of them teachers and some of them coaches, have all played a special role in his life. Tarbarac has too. They worked together after school and found that they mesh well in their talents, each complimenting the other in skill. And In-

gram looks forward to the day when his friend of the shears will open up his own shop and stand in the legacy now unfolding. It started with Ingram's uncle. When the economy started turning sour, Ingram said his uncle, Clyde Ingram, who has been a barber many years, encouraged him to "go to barber school and come take over the shop". "My uncle paid it forward to me and now I want to pay it forward." And, in some ways, Paul Ingram has already paid it forward. "When we were in barber school, struggling to get back and forth with high gas prices, there was another guy in our class, who Paul noticed was also struggling. The guy was going to have to quit because he couldn't get to and from school," Tarbarac said. "Paul lent him his extra car just to get him back and forth to school. I'll never forget that." The man finished college and returned his car. It's important how you treat peo-

ple, Ingram noted. "I want to treat everyone the same here." He added that the shop's doors will be open to people of all races and ethnicities, men, women and children. On Thursday, Priscilla Jimson sat down for a trim as the shop's first customer. "I can't wait until tomorrow. How many people can say that about their jobs?" Paul asked. "Refereeing, coaching and barbering is not a job to me. When you love your job, it's not a job…I haven't worked in eight years," he smiled. He credits barber Tim Graves for grooming him and showing him what being a professional barber is really all about. "Tim put me under his wing," he said. But there have been a lot of great influences in his life, Ingram added, who have helped him and inspired him along the way, especially in his family. "I had the best father (Roosevelt Ingram) in the world," he said. "He always told us to work hard."

His brother, Eddie Ingram helped him get the shop ready. His uncle, Clyde, has offered encouragement. Both have served in the armed forces and in their honor, Paul said he will be offering his services at a discount to veterans. The shop will be open Mondays 12-5 p.m., Tuesdays-Thursdays 9-5 p.m., and Fridays-Saturdays 7-5 p.m. The grand opening with refreshments will be held at the shop beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday. The shop is located at 501 E. King St., near the intersection of Cansler St., across from Bridges Hardware. Paul is married to Mary Ingram and the two have three daughters, Maya, Seanna and Lizzie. Paul met Michael Jordan as a youth when Jordan was staying in Kings Mountain to play in Dixie baseball. Tarbarac's twin brother, Sarbarac Bell, plans to join the two as a professional barber at the shop.

Close to 100 participants, brows teeming with sweat and

hearts racing to the hard hitting music pulsing from loud speakers, were pushed to their limits and beyond in an introductory BodyPUMP class at the Dover Y

Saturday morning. It's weightlifting to the extreme. It takes no prisoners and wants no sissies and on Monday, it came to Kings Mountain. The Cleveland Avenue Y is one of three Cleveland County YMCA facilities licensed to teach the intense 60-minute Les Mills workout. The Shelby Y launched the program Saturday with two workout sessions that made even the most worked muscles quiver from use. First-timer Phil Dee, owner of Patriot Jack's Outfitters in Kings Mountain and a regular in the gym, felt the burn in his legs afterwards. The "total body workout", he said, "made me realize I don't work my legs enough." The class of weights-based resistance training, incorporating squats, lunges, presses and lifts, choreographed to modern dance music is designed to challenge every major muscle group in the body. Participants can burn up to 560 calories in this hour-long moderate-to-high intensity workout, according to the class' brochure. One participant noted that it was almost like military drills, if drills were set to music…and were fun. The challenges were designed

to be tough. "This was an intense workout," said Nicole Ledford of Kings Mountain. "It got to where I was thinking, 'I don't think I can do anymore'," said Judy Ford, a second grade teacher from West Elementary, who pushed beyond her mental barriers to get through the workout Saturday. "I loved it. I'm hooked!" "It was a lot of fun," Dee said. Although the class challenged the drive and grit of all its pupils, many seemed excited about their next BodyPUMP session. Sixteen instructors from the Cleveland County YMCA enrolled in an intense two-day training course to become licensed to teach the workouts. "All Cleveland County YMCAs are licensed Les Mills facilities," said Taffy Allen, a BodyPUMP instructor and wellness director of the Kings Mountain Y. "Les Mills offers other fitness programs and the Y will be adding additional ones at a later date." The Kings Mountain Family YMCA will provide BodyPUMP classes on Mondays at 5:30 p.m., Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., Thursdays at 4:30 p.m., Fridays at 9:30 a.m. and on alternating Saturdays.
