Council renames stadium In other business: City buys new equipment, moves to demolish two abandoned homes DAVE BLANTON firstname.lastname@example.org
The Kings Mountain City Council met last Tuesday to rename one of the cityâ€™s sports stadium after a Kings Mountain coaching great, award a commercial mower bid contract, recognize several city employees for their service and set two condemned properties for eventual demolition, among other business. Parker Farm Service beat three other bidders on the price and delivery of a boom mower, also known as a bush hog, that will be used to cut grass on city property as needed. The cost of the
mower is $102,000, an expenditure that was already part of the yearâ€™s budget. City Stadium, located at W. Mountain St. and S. Gaston St., is set to be renamed â€œShuâ€? Carlton Stadium, the Kings Mountain High Schoolâ€™s head football coach from 1948-1956, who amassed a 48-25-8 record during his tenure. Carlton won the Southwestern Conference championship twice. He was also a Bronze-medal winner in the Korean War, for leaving his tank and crawling through a minefield to rescue a fellow Marine who was under heavy fire, according to documents pro-
duced by the council. Carlton is a member of five sports halls of fame, including The Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame, the Gaston County Sports Hall of Fame and the N.C. High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame. The Kings Mountain Hall of Fame is set to raise money for any costs associated with new signage and street markings, according to Kings Mountain Mayor Rick Murphrey. The city moved a step closer to demolishing two vacant properties in the Midpines area that are in disrepair and are overgrown with See COUNCIL 6A,

New hope for Travis Battle against rare disease continues
Bethware principal eager to share credit DAVE BLANTON email@example.com
DAVE BLANTON firstname.lastname@example.org
Ashley Milton is standing by her young son in a frightening medical ordeal that has tested the entire family since he got a terrifying diagnosis of a rare and dangerous immune system disorder back in January. Travis Davis, 8, underwent a potentially life-saving bone-marrow transplant on Aug. 24 at Levine Childrenâ€™s Hospital in Charlotte in an effort to reverse the effects of a very uncommon autoimmune disease called hyper immunoglobulin syndrome. In general, the condition causes grave weaknesses in the immune system and results in patients having a higher than normal susceptibility to various infections. Now, the doctors and family are waiting anxiously to see if the transplant procedure was a success. â€œWeâ€™re hearing it went well â€Ś but we donâ€™t know yet if it was a complete success,â€? Milton said. â€œThe bone marrow hasnâ€™t starting growing in his body.â€? Milton said doctors have told her that within the next week her sonâ€™s white blood count should start rising. That would signal that his body is accepting the donor tissue, and that he may be able to defeat the disease that affects only one in two million males. Females are carriers of the gene that causes hyper immunoglobulin syndrome and are not susceptible to it, as doctors have explained to Milton. Patients with Davisâ€™s condition who do not receive a successful bone marrow transplant face stark odds: eighty percent die before the age of 29 from liver disease, Milton See DAVIS, 3A
Travis Davis, seated, and cousin Cameron Petti squeeze in some playtime at Levine Childrenâ€™s Hospital in Charlotte. Davisâ€™s family is hoping a bone marrow transplant he got last month will help him fight off a rare and potentially fatal auto-immune disease he was diagnosed with in the winter.
Make a Wish come true this Saturday A high school senior project about generosity that leapt from the school grounds to try to do some real good in the world is now in its fourth year. The annual Jamminâ€™ for Wishes benefit, a music festival and 5k run that so far has raised $7,500 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The event, which features live
music, face painting and other family-oriented activities, kicks off at 8 a.m. Saturday at Patriots Park downtown. Isaac Pearson took an interesting fundraising as a teen at Kings Mountain High School. He wowed judges with a senior project on the psychology of giving and founded See JAMMINâ€™, 6A
Jennifer Wampler is taking her latest accomplishment in stride. The Bethware School principal who was recently named the best at what she does in the Cleveland County Schools insists the schoolâ€™s success is a team effort. â€œItâ€™s not determined whether I won the apple,â€? she said, pointing to the glass award in the shape of the red fruit she picked up August 23 at a Shelby ceremony. â€œItâ€™s determined by what my teachers say, and by what my staff says. This school has come a long way in just a few short years.â€? Going by the studentachievement numbers, sheâ€™s right. Three years ago, when she inherited the top job at the school that serves the Oak Grove community and other parts of western Kings Mountain, Bethware was last place in standardized testing for reading and math. Last year, it claimed first in those categories. Climbing that hill required a solid plan and a steady hand at sticking to a goal of not only im-
proving those scores but making them the best among the districtâ€™s other 15 elementary schools. She also said getting wouldnâ€™t have been possible without a bright and forwardlooking staff of teachers and assistant teachers. â€œYou canâ€™t make a change in a year if there arenâ€™t people here who get it,â€? Wampler said. A product of Kings Mountain High School (class of 1994) and belonging to a family of educators, she said she knew early in life she wanted to be a teacher. She earned a B.A. from Appalachian State University and from there moved right into the classroom â€“ teaching chemistry at Wake Forest-Rolesville High School, near Raleigh. Six years later, she felt a pull toward her adopted hometown of Kings Mountain and moved to the area to take an assistant principal job at Mount Hollyâ€™s Pinewood Elementary School. Along the way she had earned a masterâ€™s degree in education from her alma mater. â€œI always wanted to be a teacher,â€? she said, speaking of her days as a high school student. â€œI didnâ€™t see myself in administration.â€?

This solemn anniversary is an annual commemorative service for those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. â€œThis was a very dark day for Americans and the world,â€™â€™ said Mayor Rick Murphrey. â€œWe will never forget the attack on so many innocent people and we honor those whose lives were lost and stand proud of our servicemen and women who continue, to this day, to defend and fight for the freedom we have here in America.â€? The observance will be held on the plaza in front of Kings Mountain City Hall, 101 W. Gold Street, at 12 noon. Participants will include the presentation of colors by the Kings Mountain Police Honor Guard, an invocation by Police Chief Melvin Proctor, pledge of allegiance by Fire Chief Frank Burns and the National Anthem by Shana Adams.

Police closer to nabbing Family Dollar robbery suspect Detectives with the Kings Mountain Police Department say theyâ€™ve made progress in the hunt for a woman who held up the Family Dollar on King Street, Aug. 24. A white female standing about 5â€™5â€™â€™ and weighing about 170 lbs. pointed a gun at a store cashier around 8:30 that night and made off with an undisclosed amount of money, according to police. No one was hurt in the crime. Family Dollar employees told police that the woman entered the store dressed in a dark-colored shirt and orange NYFD or NYPD baseball cap. Police began by examining fingerprint and video evidence from the scene of the crime. Theyâ€™ve since gathered more evidence and developed strong leads in the case. â€œWeâ€™ve two definite persons of interest that we want to speak with,â€? said Detective Corporal J.T. McDougal. The woman, who appeared to be operating alone, was reportedly driving a grey Dodge quad cab pickup truck. Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Corporal J.T. McDougal with the Kings Mountain Police Department at (704) 734-0444.
Beware of â€˜winningâ€™ scam A Kings Mountain woman who passed away two years ago is still being sent mail at her former Battleforest Apartment from a contractorâ€™s network in Cut Off, Louisiana and a securities outfit in Toronto, Ontario in what Apartment Manager Jerry Mullinax calls â€œa scam.â€? Checks in the amounts of $3,974.46 and $250,000 supposedly represented the winnings from a DeLotto North American and European sweepstakes lottery. The writer said he deducted $2,230.25 in US dollars from the winnings for taxes and declared that 80 winners of the big lottery shared a total of $250,000 in prize money. The catch: the prize winner was to forward $1,790 through Western Union to a tax agent in Cork, Oreland and â€œkeep this winning confidential.â€? The last communication to the 210 Cleveland Avenue address mentioned that the prize money was being sent â€œafter many unsuccessful attempts to locate the winner.â€? Mullinax said that the Kings Mountain tenant moved to Kings Mountain several years ago from Lucasville, Ohio and rented a senior apartment at Battleforest Apartments. She passed away two years ago.

Shelby woman pleads guilty in HUD scheme CHARLOTTE â€“ A former Shelby realtor pleaded guilty last Monday to selling household appliances she unlawfully removed from vacant homes owned by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina. Sember Lynn Smathers, 49, formerly of Shelby, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge David S. Cayer to one count of conspiracy to steal government property. The announcement comes from Anne M. Tompkins, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, Lester Fernandez, Special Agent in Charge, Office of the Inspector General, and the Office of Investiga-
tion of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. According to the criminal indictment and plea agreement, Smathers was a real estate agent and in that capacity had access to listings of vacant HUD real estate owned properties in Charlotte and surrounding communities in North and South Carolina, including Shelby. According to court records, from September 2008 to July 2009, Smathers used a master key to enter the vacant HUD homes and unlawfully remove appliances â€“ such as refrigerators, stoves, washers and dryers â€“ and other items from the homes. Smathers and her coconspirators usually conducted these â€œclean outsâ€? one or two times per week.
Court records indicate that Smathers then sold these items from her home in Shelby. In February 2009, Smathers and a co-conspirator leased a building in Shelby and set up a business called â€œCheap Stuff,â€? from which they sold the household appliances as well as clothes and lawn maintenance equipment stolen from the HUD properties. According to filed documents, Smathers and another co-conspirator also maintained a storage unit in Shelby to store the stolen appliances, and used Craigâ€™s List, the Shelby Shopper and the Shelby Star to advertise and sell these appliances. Court records indicate that in one instance, Smathers and another person were conducting a â€œclean
outâ€? while subcontractors were working at the same vacant HUD property. When the subcontractors questioned Smathers about the removal of the appliances from the home, Smathers falsely represented that she and her co-conspirator also worked for the same subcontractors and had been directed to remove the appliances from the home. Court records show that Smathers stole over $13,678 worth of appliances from the vacant homes.

DAVIS: continues to battle against rare disease From page 1A said. Davis has been under extensive care since winter and has spent much of that time in the hospital. It was necessary for him to undergo a round of chemotherapy before the late August surgery. The young fighter, though, has had a lot of company and support. His mother has been by his bedside for months as he and doctors battle to beat the rare disease that has made him so sick. His cousin and best friend Cameron Petti, 9, has also spent many hours by his bedside, and family members say that has gone a long way toward cheering up the ailing boy. Travis younger sister Trinity, 7, has also been visiting as much as she can. Davisâ€™s aunt Tasha Locklear described her nephew and his mother as â€œamazingâ€? for holding up as well as they have. â€œHeâ€™s one strong kid.

NC Supreme Court grants AG Cooperâ€™s request for a stay of Court of Appeals ruling Raleigh: A state law that bans convicted sex offenders from using social networking websites where children are members remains in effect thanks to a stay granted by the North Carolina Supreme Court, Attorney General Roy Cooper said Friday. Cooper requested the stay following a Court of Appeals ruling that struck down the law last week in the case of State v. Packingham.

Free online workshop provides information and support Itâ€™s called Building Better Caregiversâ„˘ and itâ€™s a free six-week online workshop for family caregivers of veterans. If you are taking care of a veteran, this workshop will help you learn a variety of skills like time and stress management, healthy eating, exercise and dealing with difficult emotions. Participants log on two to three times each week to review lessons, exchange ideas with other caregivers and access tools to make caregiving easier. The program, developed at Stanford University, has been recognized for its ability to reduce caregiver stress, depression and increase their overall wellbeing.

that included stricter sentences for child predators and pornographers who use the Internet to find their victims. â€œInstead of lurking around playgrounds, todayâ€™s child predators go online where they can groom multiple victims at once,â€? Cooper said. â€œAlong with tough laws, strong law enforcement, and education efforts, keeping known sex abusers off of social networking sites helps protect children.â€? Cooper encourages parents to talk to their children about how to stay safe from strangers online, and recommends that parents consider their kidsâ€™ age and maturity carefully before agreeing to let them use social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. â€œParents are the most important line of defense when it comes to keeping kids safe and helping them make smart choices,â€? Cooper said. Tools for parents, such as sample ground rules for Internet use and tips for safer social networking, are available at www.ncdoj.gov.

Josh Tucker Pastor St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church A recent focus in my daily devotions has been on the abundant blessings that God so generously bestows upon his people. David’s Psalm reads, “happy are the people to whom such blessings fall; happy are the people whose God is the Lord” (Pslam 144:15). When God created the heavens and the earth he named his creation good. Throughout the Scriptures,
The Kings Mountain Herald | www.kmherald.net
an everlasting covenant is created between God and his people marking the promises God makes to creation to provide and protect us, to supply us with what we need and to richly bless us. This recent focus on God’s continual blessings for us has caused me to think about the natural reaction we have in our society and culture today to focus on what seems to be lacking in our lives rather than what we have been blessed with. It’s easy, and most likely natural for humanity, to direct our thinking towards the things that we need (or want) instead of what God has promised, promises and will promise to bless us with. Our challenge as God’s people is to focus our thinking not on what we’re lacking but on the positive blessings of the life God has
granted us with; to focus on the time, talent and treasures that we have and to share those blessings with others. In the gospel of Mark, Jesus gives us a great example of this shift in our attitude and focus. Jesus and his disciples have a large crowd that has been following them for a long time. Jesus has been preaching and teaching the people and they find themselves in a deserted place and everyone is tired and hungry. The people have no money to buy food and neither do the disciples. Some of the disciples notice that a few of the people who have followed them have some bread but it is certainly not enough to feed everyone (about 5,000 men and their families). Naturally, the disciples begin to panic over fear that they cannot provide for
the faithful people. Just then, Jesus turns the disciples focus to what they have instead of what is lacking. He asks them “how many loaves have you, go and see” (Mark 6:36). Of course, in one of the more popular miracles in the Scriptures, Jesus goes on to ask God’s blessings upon the little amount of bread and fish that they have gathered and the entire crowd is able to get their fill with some food being left over. As we work to change our mindset to focus on the blessings God gives us rather than what we lack in this life we are able to see and experience the love of God more abundantly; we are able to take in his blessings more deeply; and we are more apt to share his love and his blessings with others. God bless you today and always. Amen.

COUNCIL: renames stadium, buys equipment, moves to demolish abandoned homes From page 1A brush and weeds. An abandoned house at 311 Edel Street is set to be torn down by late October. It shows roof and ceiling damage, is open to vagrants and is dangerous to life, health and other property, according to information provided to the council by the cityâ€™s Department of Codes and Engineering Standards. The property and the structure together have a current tax value of $22,095, according to information supplied to the council. A neighboring property, 307 Edel Street, has also drawn the attention of the city due to its state of disrepair. The city has already boarded up the sagging and abandoned structure. Per ordinance, however, the city must wait one year from the date of the resolution to demolish it up because it has been appraised of having an actual value at least 50 percent of its stated tax value of $75,000. The one-year gap is designed to give any current or future owners the opportunity to bring the building up to code. According to the Department of Codes and Engineering, it poses a fire hazard and the risk of other accidents. It also has a leaking roof, no heating system and a damaged foundation. Several Midpines residents appeared before the council to attest to the damage the two properties have inflicted on the neighborhood. They also expressed frustration about the

In other business, the council moved to make Sept. 7 â€œMake A Wishâ€? day in Kings Mountain. Isaac Pearson, his brother Jack and their father Butch started the annual musical benefit Jamminâ€™ for Wishes, which raises money for the MakeA-Wish Foundation. This yearâ€™s concert and 5K run is set for Sept. 7 at Patriots Park. It also proclaimed to make September Childhood Obesity Awareness Month in the town. Council notes said that during the past four decades, obesity rates have soared among all age groups, increasing more than fourfold among those aged 6 to 11. Nearly 32 percent of children between ages two and 19 are obese or overweight. The council invited residents, business owners and health professionals to help raise awareness about the epidemic â€œnot only in our city but across the nation,â€? the mayor said. The council also recognized Adam Douglas Satterfield for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts Organization. Heâ€™s the son of Doug and Sandra Satterfield and a member of Boy Scout Troop 91 of Bethlehem Baptist Church. He was also recognized for his outstanding work on the Hamrick Overlook Project on the Gateway Trail, which provides scenic views of downtown Kings Mountain. Satterfield didnâ€™t attend, but the mayor said the council plans to invite him back and officially recognize him in person.

the school club Mounties for Wishes. His younger brother Jack, now president of the club, and father Butch are getting ready for the annual fundraising event they run together. â€œThe money we raise stays here,â€? Pearson said, explaining that 100 percent of the money they raise goes directly to the regional Make-A-Wish Foundation organization. In just two years, he said, the Make-AWish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina has helped 11 Kings Mountain children and 33 others in Cleveland County fighting life-threatening illnesses make their wishes come true. The most popular wish is a trip to Disneyworld â€“ which cost about $6,000 â€“ that includes accommodations for family members and a friend of the ailing child, Pearson said.

But that slowly changed as Wampler discovered she could apply her smarts and tough work ethic to having a larger impact on more students. After a two-year stint at Pinewood, she moved to East Elementary to take her first job as principal. Now, she says, â€œBethware is a good fit for me. I love the school. We have a bright future here.â€? On a stroll through campus last week, she spoke easily about the schoolâ€™s long history as she visited a few classrooms. The school was the result of a consolidation between El Bethel School and Ware

School in 1924. Since those early days, it has picked up the students from the Bethlehem and Patterson Grove communities. Up until 1961, it served students of all levels. The following year, as a central high school was established downtown, it became a 1st-8th grade school. In the last several decades, like other elementary schools, it added a kindergarten level and eventually dropped 5th grade as the Kings Mountain Intermediate School become a feeder for all of Kings Mountain and Groverâ€™s 5th graders. For about the last decade, it has also offered optional prekindergarten classes. As Bethware changes with the times, so does Wampler. Sheâ€™s working on another advanced degree at Appalachian State (Education Specialist), which says sheâ€™ll finish up in the fall of 2014 and give her the credentials needed to go after even bigger jobs in education. After that, sheâ€™s planning on enrolling in a doctoral program. The selection process for
Principal of the Year begins with getting nominated by other Cleveland County principals. Then, nominees submit their resumes. Finalists are ultimately interviewed by a panel consisting of a Gardner-Webb education professor, a representative from Cleveland Community College, and a community leader with connections to local schools. â€œThey were some great people in the running,â€? Wampler said. â€œI was really honored just to be among them.â€? Wampler, who describes herself as a big Duke basketball fan, lives in Kings Mountain with her husband, a detective with the Shelby Police Department, and their two daughters, Markie, 3, and Sloan, 1. She joins two others in receiving the systemâ€™s highest accolades for the 20122013 school year. Lawson Propst, of Fallston Elementary, won the Teacher of the Year Award and Joreka Bass, of Burns High School, won the Teacher Assistant of the Year.

Traveling 8,000 miles to visit some old friends DAVE BLANTON email@example.com
Foreign exchange students come and go. Some come and go and then come back again, having forged bonds with host families and other friends they’ve made in the their time visiting the United States. That’s the case with Lynn Dell, a South African who attended Kings Mountain High School for a semester in 2002. She’s been catching up with old friends here in town for a month while she’s on vacation. “The people drew me back here,” said the 26-year-old Dell, now a biology teacher at an all-girls school in Johannesburg, her native country’s largest city. “The only thing (some people) know about America is what they see on TV or the movies. They don’t understand that there are all these wonderful small towns.” On a recent afternoon on Kimberly and Justin Frye’s patio, Dell was enjoying the warm summer air (it’s the middle of winter in South Africa) and chatting about some of her travels. She took in the sites of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge two weeks ago with her 2002 host family Cathy and Jerry Stark. And she spent a long Labor Day weekend in Myrtle Beach with Lynda and Randy Frye, a couple she is staying with for a few weeks on her current stay in the U.S. “We liked Lynn when we first met her,” said Frye, a retired middle and intermediate school teacher. “We’re so delighted she was able to come back here all these years later and visit us.” Frye and her husband themselves have played host to foreign exchange students who have also returned years later to catch up. Last year they welcomed Lisa Wetzel, a German, back into their home. Dell, the South African, actually made a return trip to the U.S. in 2007, but she spent most of her time on that trip in California. In fact, the young traveler for years was somewhat of a moving target. She packed up her bags in 2010 and moved to South Korea to take a job teaching English in the Asian country’s second largest city of Busan. She said it was that experience that inspired her to go into teaching upon returning to South Africa. Before that she was on track to be a research scientist in microbiology. “That really made the difference,” she said. “It made it clear that teaching was the best thing for me.” She flies back to the busy city of Johannesburg tomorrow to get back to work, where most private schools operate on a trimester schedule. Dell said she’s enjoyed everything about coming back to the Kings Mountain area, especially the area’s relatively slow pace and quiet evenings.
Ginger Jeffcoat, a coordinator and regional manager for a company that makes arrangements for foreign exchange students, said she’s used to seeing a lot of happy outcomes. “It’s a rewarding experience for host families,” said Jeffcoat, who’s been connecting foreign students with host families for about 20 years. “Of course, it’s usually a life-changing experience for the students involved. They love it.” “Each host family gives different experiences,” she said, adding that her employer, the AIFS Foundation, places about 20 students with N.C. families each year. “But all great host families share the love of learning another culture and making a lifelong international friend.” She said that students can stay for one semester or two and that most foreign exchange students coming to the U.S. are from Western Europe, and that the practice is most common in Germany. Lynne catches up with Lynda Frye at the Frye’s home near Bessemer City.

Back to school health and safety tips Eating right A healthy diet can help students excel in school. One of the best ways to jump-start a successful school day is to provide children with a nutritious morning meal. This doesn’t necessarily mean serving traditional breakfast foods, however. For school children, a healthy breakfast can include high-fiber grains, fruit and dairy products. Here are some options: • Fiber rich and whole-grain cereals with low fat milk • Yogurt and berries • Toast, eggs and 100 percent fruit juice • Whole-wheat bagels and cheese or eggs with low-fat milk • Peanut butter and jelly sandwich with low-fat milk • Grilled cheese sandwich with 100 percent fruit juice Children should be having even more nutrient-rich foods for lunch, to help them stay alert throughout the day. Half of a child’s lunch should be fruits and vegetables, and at least half of the grains eaten at lunch should be whole grains. Fats and sweets should be kept to a minimum. Other lunchtime tips for school children: • Mix it up. Variety is good. For example, avoid packing the same type of bread every day and make sandwiches using pitas, bagels, crackers or tortillas. • Simplify things. Provide children with fruits that are easy to pick up and eat, such as apple wedges, grapes or strawberries. Packing a yogurt or peanut butter dipping sauce can also be fun for kids. • Limit sugary drinks. Even 100 percent juice contains a lot of sugar. Opt for low-fat milk, water or sugar-free flavored water. Don’t give children drinks with caffeine or
herbal supplements. • Review the school lunch menu. Even children who bring their lunch to school can buy a cheese stick or milk at school to ensure it’s fresh and cold. Parents should check their child’s school lunch menu to review what is being served.
carrying too much weight. Watch your child put on or take off a backpack to see if they have difficulty. If a backpack appears too heavy, have the child remove some of the books and carry them in their arms to ease the load on their back. Children should be encouraged to stop at their locker throughout the day to drop off heavier books.
Backpack safety It's not only how much weight a kid totes, but also how it's packed and distributed With the start of a new school year, parents need to think about the comfort and safety of their children's backpacks. Backpacks are designed to distribute the weight of load among some of the body's strongest muscles. But when worn incorrectly, injuries such as strains, sprains and posture problems can occur. While some of these injuries can be minor, others can have a lasting effect on kids, and follow them into adulthood. Children should carry no more than 15 percent to 20 percent of their body weight. They should use both shoulder straps on backpacks and adjust the straps to keep the load close to the back. Other tips: When lifting backpacks, bend at the knees. Remove or reorganize items if a backpack is too heavy. When packing, place heavier items low and toward the center. Carry only items that are required for the school day or for homework. Parents should buy a backpack that's an appropriate size for the child. They should encourage their child to alert them about numbness or tingling in the arms or legs, which may indicate that a backpack fits poorly or that a child is
School bus safety Those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are gone and that means it’s time to talk school – specifically school bus safety. • Make sure your children arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus is due. • Discourage horseplay and instruct them to stay out of the street while they’re waiting. • Once they climb aboard, instruct your kids to stay seated, facing forward, and to keep their head and arms inside. • And no shouting or fooling around, extra noise and activity can distract the driver. • When it’s time to get off, students should wait until the bus comes to a full stop. • If they have to cross the street, they should walk at least 10 feet in front of the bus so the driver can see them. • It’s best to have your child look left, right, and left again, before stepping into the street to make sure no cars are coming. • One more important note, no talking to strangers when walking to and from the bus stop.

THIS WEEK Forestview at Kings Mountain, 7:30 p.m. Friday, John Gamble Stadium (This is Kings Mountainâ€™s last non-conference game. They play their first-ever SMAC conference game next week at home against East Rutherford. NOTABLE Running backs Bishop Ford and Moe Neal of Forestview and offensive lineman Graham Keeter of Kings Mountain are being recruited by D1 teams. Brandon McClain became the first Kings Mountain freshman to rush for over 100 yards in a single game in last weekâ€™s victory at East Gaston.
Kings Mountain freshman Brandon McClain (23) picks up some of his 168 yards rushing in Fridayâ€™s non-conference victory at East Gaston.
Quick start, strong finish key to KMâ€™s 40-23 victory over East Gaston eleven Kings Mountainâ€™s Mountaineers scored on their first three possessions of the first half, withstood a third quarter East Gaston rally and then put the Warriors away with touchdowns on their final two possessions for a 40-23 non-conference victory Friday night on the Warriorsâ€™ turf. The win was the second straight for the Mountaineers, marking the first time since 2009 that theyâ€™ve won their first two games of the season. That year they began with victories over Kennedy Charter and Burns. Kings Mountain continued to get good play from its young skill players, good
blocking from its veteran offensive line and big plays from the defense. Freshman running back Brandon McClain scored four touchdowns and accumulated 168 yards rushing on 24 attempts. Junior quarterback Brandon Bell added 120 yards rushing and hit 5 of 13 passes for 126 yards, including a spectacular fleaflicker pass to freshman wide receiver Jake Merchant that covered 43 yards on the third play of the game. Most of KMâ€™s touchdown drives were not time consuming. It took only six plays to drive the opening kickoff 65 yards for a 7-0 lead. McClain scored from
one yard out after gaining 12 yards on three previous carries. Led by quick junior quarterback Austin Woods, the Warriors didnâ€™t waste any time getting on the board, either. Woods had two runs of 17 yards, and following a 15-yard penalty against the Mountaineers for hitting him out of bounds he rambled in from nine yards out to tie the game. McClain broke a 40-yard touchdown run to put KM up 13-7; and after Chaz Gamble recovered an East Gaston fumble the Mountaineers drove 88 yards in 10 plays to go up 20-7 on McClainâ€™s five-yard run.
East Gastonâ€™s return man couldnâ€™t hold on to the second half kickoff and KMâ€™s Josh Beheler recovered it at the Warrior 18 to set up McClainâ€™s fourth straight TD of the night, this one from three yards out. That resulted in a 27-6 lead which at the time seemed comfortable. But East Gaston responded by driving the kickoff 75 yards, highlighted by a 58-yard reception by Bailey Crane, and Woods scored from two yards out at the 10:09 mark of the third quarter. Woods added a two-point conversion run to bring the score to 26-15. East Gaston successfully executed an onside kick, but
eventually lost the ball on downs. But, after forcing a Mountaineer punt the Warriors got on the board again on another one-yard run by Woods and Woods found Crane alone in the back of the end zone for a two-point conversion pass which brought the Warriors to within a field goal, 26-23, with 7.9 seconds left in the third period. After forcing the Warriors to punt with 9:10 remaining in the game, the Mountaineers took over at their own 38. Aided by two 15yard penalties against the Warriors for personal fouls, KM got solid running efforts See Quick Start, 3B
KM kickers blank Draughn, Ironmen Kings Mountain Highâ€™s menâ€™s soccer team defeated Draughn and Cherryville by 1-0 scores last week to run its record to 1-1 in the SMAC and 3-1 overall. The Mountaineers were scheduled to host Crest in a conference game last night. Robbie Lysek scored the winning goal 10 minutes into the second half Wednesday at Draughn. After a sloppy first half, Coach Dan Potter said his Mountaineers came out with a new purpose in the second half. Isaiah Cole sent through ball after through ball up the gut of the Draughn defense, and Lysek capitalized. Lysek, Weston Harmon and Max Sappia each had good looks at the Draughn defense. Jordan Sweezy also played well with Cameron Hord helping solidify the
Mountaineer midfield. Jonmark Smith, Jack Zyble, Lee Bridges, Adam Kiser and Dylan Beaver contributed to the solid defensive effort in front of Jarrett Ledford, who recorded the first shutout of his soccer career. â€œWithout any doubt, our fitness really played into the much improved effort of the team,â€? Coach Potter said. â€œAs our warm-up shirts say on the back, it was â€˜TED TIME,â€™ meaning all the physical strength and conditioning that the players endured over the summer really is paying dividends for them now.â€? At Cherryville Thursday, Max Sappia scored on a through ball from Jack Zyble 10 minutes into the second half to give the Mountaineers their second shutout in two days.

City Stadium to be renamed for Shu Carlton Notes and noted from the world of sports: Kings Mountain City Council voted last week to rename City Stadium “Shu Carlton Stadium” in honor of the late Everett L. “Shu” Carlton, who brought Mountaineer football to the forefront in the 1940s and 1950s. Kings Mountain had never won a football championship until Coach Carlton came on the scene after graduating from Lenoir-Rhyne College in the spring of 1948. He coached the Mountaineers to the Western Conference championship in 1955 and the WNCHSAA title in 1956. His career here was interrupted in 1951 when he was called back into active duty in the Marines. He was awarded the Bronze Star with Combat “V” for crawling through a minefield to rescue a fallen infantryman. A dedication ceremony will be held at the stadium at a later date. Kings Mountain native and Shelby High School basketball coach Aubrey Hollifield has been named head coach of the West team for next summer’s East-West All-Star game in Greensboro… Kings Mountain High football player Jacob Miller, who suffered serious neck injuries in a summer car wreck, continues to improve. He had the halo removed last week, has started his senior year at KMHS and is rehabbing in Shelby. Doctors predict a full recovery. Mountaineer coaches wore shirts displaying Miller’s number “32” and the words “Brotherhood Lasts Forever” at Friday’s game at East Gaston… Former Mountaineer Chris Johnson, father of current junior wide receiver Xavier Johnson, was recently named assistant principal at St. Stephens High School in Hickory… Several former Mountaineers are coaching football at area high schools. Former KMHS line coach and head coach Dave Farquharson is an assistant at Forestview. Two of his former linemen here, Kareem Marshall and Julius Curry, are assistants at Ashbrook. Chris Carrigan is an assistant at Lincolnton, Rick Fortner is an assistant at Hunter Huss and Aubrey Hollifield is an assistant at Shelby… At least eight former Mountaineers will be playing college football this fall, including: -Tim Hines, a junior wide receiver at Davidson College. Hines was bothered by injuries last year, playing in only four games but hauling in 17 receptions for 162 yards. His freshman year with the Wildcats Hines played in ten games, and started seven of them, and caught 23 passes for 347 yards and five touchdowns. -Cedric Thompson, former Big South Player of the Year with the Mountaineers, is a red shirt sophomore receiver at East Carolina where he is the #3 inside wide receiver and slated for a lot of playing time -Red shirt freshman Ed Blackburn will see a lot of action at Lenoir-Rhyne. He came out of spring drills as the starting punter and back-up wide receiver. -Sophomore offensive lineman Matt Turner and junior defensive back Shelton Watson will see a lot of playing time at Guilford College. Watson started most of his freshman and sophomore years making 41 tackles (including 26 solo). Turner played in two games last year as a true freshman and is slated for more playing time this fall. -Redshirt freshman Ed Hopper should see a lot of action on the defensive line for UNC Pembroke. He’s 6-0, 330 and will be hard to move. -Shelton Price and John Robbs will be playing their sophomore years at Brevard College. Price started on the offensive line as a freshman and Robbs should get plenty of action at fullback.

from Bell, McClain and Crocker for a first down at the 15. After a yard loss, Bell hit Merchant on a quick out and the freshman made a quick move around his defender and ran untouched into the end azone for a 3323 lead. A quarterback sack by Nick Postell and Keenan
Baker stopped the Warriors on downs at the KM 24 with 4:34 left. McClain got the Mountaineers into EG territory with two carries for 32 yards and Bell later had a 25yard run to the six. Crocker carried twice in a row, with the second tote covering four yards for the TD. Kings Mountain got an outstanding defensive performance from several play-
ers. Even though Woods had a great night rushing for the Warriors, 79 of his 129 yards rushing came on five carries on their first two possessions of the game. He was sacked three times (by Khalil Hopper and Julian Coulter, Coulter and Gamble, and Hopper and Josh Bell); and was thrown for losses three times by Postell, Elijah Whitaker, and Postell and Keenan Baker.

Eulogy for Linda Dixon given at Womanâ€™s Club By LOIS BLANTON Club Reporter
The 6 p.m. meeting of the Kings Mountain Womanâ€™s Club was held Monday, Aug. 26, with 21 members and two visitors present. President Betty Gamble presided and Johnsie Reavis led the pledge to the flags. Esther Plonk gave the eulogy for Linda Dixon, who died July 7, 2013. Linda was a faithful member who held many offices in the club as well as in the district. â€œLife itself was a celebration for our friend, Linda Dixon, and she threw herself into it with vigor,â€? said Plonk. She was an active member of First Baptist Church, a Sunday school teacher, and led the KM Womanâ€™s Club for several terms as president and on major committees in both the local club and district. It was always great fun to attend meetings and state functions with her.â€? Plonk described Mrs. Dixon as a leader, a listener, and a people person and friend. If something was ever wrong with how projects were going she calmly fixed them. She was on the board of directors of the Historical Museum, was president of the Study club, and a gracious lady, loving wife, mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. Sue Likaker introduced Adria Focht, Historical Museum Director and Curator. She talked about the current exhibit on gems and minerals and the Veterans Military exhibit at the museum. The annual reverse raffle and auction will be held Sept. 14 at the Patrick Center. A Civil War Living History Reenactment will be held Oct. 5 and the â€œTrain Ex-
hibitâ€? returns Nov. 16-Jan. 4. Focht spoke on preserving family collections and offered her help to individuals who request it. Sue Litaker said $569.50 was the profit from a recent yard sale. Proceeds are used for the annual scholarship for a high school student. Ann Bennett asked for volunteers to visit the Fire Department, Police Department and Rescue Squads on Sept. 11 and take snacks and goodies in appreciation for their work. Betty Sue Morris thanked those who contributed clothing to be used in the hospital when patients are discharged and need them. She delivered large bag full of donated items. Linda Appling announced a profit of $7100 on the cookbooks. Members will sell pecans as another fundraiser to help pay for the new heating and air-conditioning units which have been installed. Appling said $1200 is needed to complete this project. The program for Sept. 23 will be â€œMeet the Candidates.â€? Nineteen candidates who are running for local and county officers have been invited to participate and the community is invited. New officers will be installed in November. They are: Secretary, Julienne Ham bright; Treasurer Doris McGinnis, Chaplain Betty Benton; Reporter Lois Blanton.; Newsletter Editor Ann Gamble and Federation Director Esther Plonk. The annual Fall Festival will be held Wednesday, Oct. 16. Tickets are now on sale from any member for $10. R4efreshments were enjoyed at the end of the meeting.
Education First forum set September 12 in Belmont â€œEducation First,â€™â€™ a public forum featuring N. C. State Superintendent of Public Education June Atkinson, will be held Thursday, Sept. 12, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in Duke Kimbrell Auditorium in Belmont.

Girl Scouts holding sign-up events You know that feeling when you just canâ€™t wait for tomorrow? Itâ€™s back-to-school time and with that comes the anticipation for girls to join Girl Scouts! In Girl Scouting, girls are always counting down to the next adventure! Maybe it's artistic. Maybe it's a science experiment. Maybe it's getting outside or helping the community. Either way, girls will make new friends and have many new experiences that show the excitement of each day! Girls and parents are invited to attend one of the following Express Events to learn more and to get involved. Âˇ September 10, 6:30 p.m.- El Bethel United Methodist Church, 122 El Bethel Road, Kings Mountain. Âˇ September 10, 6:30 p.m.- Boyce Memorial, 111 Edgemont Avenue, Kings Mountain. Âˇ September 12, 6:30 p.m.- Sharon United Methodist Church, 871 College Avenue, Shelby. Âˇ September 12, 6:30 p.m.- Central United Methodist Church, 200 E. Marion Street, Shelby. â€œA recent Girl Scout research study shows that girls canâ€™t wait to experience all that Girl Scouting has to offer,â€? said Marcia Cole,
chief executive officer of Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont. â€œAnd, we know the feeling â€“ we can't wait for girls to have those experiences!â€? Girls can become a member for $15. Participation in program events is immediate but placement in a troop is based on availability. â€œIn order to guarantee girls can be involved with a troop, we need even more volunteers to accommodate the growing list of girls looking to become Girl Scouts,â€? Cole said. Research from the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) shows that women who were Girl Scouts have a stronger sense of self, greater civic engagement, and higher educational attainment and income than those who werenâ€™t Girl Scouts. More important to girl members, Girl Scouting is a fun way to try new experiences that make them realize they can be anything they want to be. Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont is a United Way agency. For more information, visit www.girlscoutsp2p.org or contact local recruitment manager Debbie Brown at 704-874-1522 or e-mail dbrown@ girlscoutsp2p.org.

Heaven and Earth exhibit opens Saturday â€œHeaven and Earthâ€? an exhibit of paintings by local artist Gary Freeman, opens Saturday September 7, with a public reception from 7-9 p.m. at the Southern Arts Society (in the old depot) in Kings Mountain, NC. and continues through Sept. 27. Gary Freeman, from Cherryville, NC, is a painter and printmaker known for his Carolina landscapes. His images, found as he drives the rural roads or walks over the land near his home, reflect an interest in nature, land, and architecture. His work has evolved to explore the relationship between God and man in a rural and small town environment. His process relies upon study from life and his own reference photographs taken on location. The preliminary
work proceeds through a series of studies to a full-sized chalk drawing done directly on a toned canvas. His painting technique involves building up layers of thick opaque paint and transparent glazes to achieve areas of color and texture. While developing an image, the large areas are blocked in first followed by the smaller shapes, lines and details. He is constantly adjusting relationships, altering and simplifying forms, to intensity the visual experience. After earning an Associate of Fine Arts from Gaston College in 1978, he transferred to East Carolina University and earned a B. S. Degree in Art Education and a Master of Arts in Studio Arts. He has been an art instructor at Gaston College since
1982. He became the head of the art program in 1996, and continues to teach twodimensional design, drawing, printmaking, art history, and art appreciation. Gary is a member of the Blue Ridge Realists, a group of painters that includes Bob Timberlake. In 1968, an artistic movement developed in western North Carolina based on rural realism, inspired by man and his connection to the regional landscape. Cofounders of the movement, Bob Timberlake and Ward Nichols, along with Cotton Ketchie and Jack Greenfield, make up its first generation of artists. The second generation of artists is Philip Philbeck, John Furches, Gary Freeman, Richard Oversmith, Scott Boyle, and
Frederick Craig Franz, making the ten painters who represent a school of artists known as the â€œBlue Ridge R e a l i s t s . Southern Arts Society (the old train depot), 301 N. Piedmont Ave., Kings Mountain, NC. Currently on exhibit â€œHeaven and Earthâ€? paintings by Gary Freeman in the Reavis Gallery. Also on dis-
play in the Founders Gallery are paintings by Brenda Beard Bostian, Gert Fisher, Marcee Musgrove and Valerie Pinkerton Smith. Gallery and gift shop hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information call 704-7395585.
