Holiday classic opens Friday at Joy Theatre

in the vicinity of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Parade-watchers can enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas, pretty girls, floats, high-stepping bands–and a plus for kids who line the parade route– plenty of candy pitched from cars, trucks and floats. Santa Claus, of course, is the star of the show. Registration applications are still available online at or at Kings Mountain City Hall. The parade is video-taped on Channel 19, the Cleveland Community College public access channel. The weatherman was predicting cloudy skies Saturday with a high of 62 degrees with a 10% chance of rain. The recent Olympics was the second

time that Byers shined as a world-class Olympian. “Bamm Bamm”, a nickname he earned competing on the mat at Kings Mountain High, is a three time world medalist. He wrestled for the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program in Colorado Springs, CO, was world champion in 2002 and is 10-time U.S. champion. He finished seventh in the Olympics in Beijing, China, in 2008. His hopes of an Olympic medal were dashed in London, England in August but he gave his fans plenty to cheer about. A flag signed by his family and friends was taken to London by Leigh and Michael Bell of Kings Mountain.The 1993 graduate of KMHS will be escorted in the parade by the See KM PARADE, 5A

Lower gas prices allowed for more travel over Thanksgiving holidays BETH BROCK

AAA estimated that more than 1 million people in NC traveled more than 50 miles from their homes over the Thanksgiving holidays. The average trip length for North Carolinians was around 600 miles round trip. The day before Thanksgiving is reported to be one of the busiest days of the year to travel. One way the NC Department of Transportation tried to decrease traffic prob-

lems was by stopping all construction on interstates as well as most state and US routes on Tuesday, Nov. 20. According to AAA, statewide gas prices were an average of six cents lower than this time last year. Prices on Wednesday, Nov. 21 were an average of $3.31, compared to $3.85 in September. Kings Mountain was a little higher, with the average gas cost being $3.39, while Grover’s gas averaged $3.07 throughout the holiday weekend.

Southern Power’s Plant Cleveland to celebrate start-up

National Hospice Care Month - Pictured L to R: Patti McMurry - Vice President of Access, Lee Ann Long - Vice President of Clinical Services, Myra McGinnis - Chief Executive Officer, Jenny Sharp - Vice President of Quality , all of Hospice Cleveland County, cutting a cake in celebration of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.

The celebration will be held from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. with plant tours following the ribbon-cutting.

Home for Christmas – Kings Mountain! by ELLIS NOELL The Christmas holiday season always seems to be a lot brighter in Kings Mountain, whether it’s the shimmering lights throughout the downtown or the bright smiles of the little ones as they greet Santa when he arrives on his Fire Truck Express! The “Home for Christmas� celebration in Kings Mountain kicked off last Tuesday with the Children’s Christmas Tree Lighting at Mauney Memorial Library, and all the decorations lit on Thanksgiving Eve. This year, on Saturday, Dec. 1, the Kings Mountain Family YMCA will kick off the 12th annual “Jingle Bell Rockin’ Run� at 10 a.m. with a 10k and 5k run through the tree-lined streets of the West End Historic District. It will start and finish at Patriots Park. A new entry to the west side of the park has been finished, in conjunction with the new restroom facilities and newly dedicated Patriots Memorial, and will be utilized in the race course. The Kings Mountain Historical Museum will also have activities planned for Saturday, Dec. 1 with an encampment of Civil War reenactors with the 38th NC Regiment, and a variety of period craft demonstrations, at the Commons behind the main exhibit hall. Following

the annual Christmas parade, the museum will re-open for candlelight tours of the Robert Barber Log House. The “Toys, Games & Trains� exhibit and model railway will be open throughout the holiday season as well. The Southern Arts Society will be open throughout the Christmas season with “Art for Christmas� at the old Southern Railway Station. This depot has been transformed from a gallery to a holiday gift shop full of artistic, unique gift items handmade by local artists. Affordable art abounds! Also on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., there will be a reception and Dutch treat luncheon at 238 Cherokee Grill (the old Battleground building) honoring Greco-Roman wrestler, Olympic Champion and former Kings Mountain resident Dremiel “Bamm Bamm� Byers. This will be an opportunity for the community to welcome and congratulate Bamm Bamm on his Olympic and Team USA wrestling successes. This 1993 graduate of Kings Mountain High School will later be escorted by the high school wrestling team during the annual Kings Mountain Christmas Parade. The annual Kings Mountain Christmas Parade will also be a part of the Dec. 1 activities, beginning at 3 p.m. Over 100 entries are ex-

pected including the Greenville CYO, the Loch Norman Pipe Band and the Kings Mountain High School Marching Band. Leading off the parade will be the color guard from the Marine Corps League NC Foothills Detachment 1164. Veterans are welcome to ride in the Marine transport truck in the parade. From the “Ghost Busters� white Cadillac ambulance to dignitaries, beauty queens and some of the best local dance groups, in all their Christmas sparkles, will be joining the other participants in one of the largest parades in the county. Of course, Santa will be there in his Fire Truck Express! The Express will also make a stop on Saturday, Dec. 14, from 1-3 p.m. at the Kings Mountain Historical Museum for a final check on those Christmas lists, and the children will have the opportunity to see a huge HO scale train set up. And, on Christmas Eve, luminarias will

glow throughout Mountain Rest Cemetery from 5:30 p.m. until midnight. Christmas just couldn’t be brighter than when you come “Home for Christmas – Kings Mountain.� Mr. Noell is the Events Coordinator for the City of Kings Mountain

He will “remember” our “sins no more”

Dr. Jeff Hensley Pastor Kings Mountain Baptist Church Now I know that many Christians are uncomfortable with books like the Harry Potter series, but like other contemporary works of fiction, there are interesting elements in these books that may suggest some valuable spiritual themes, and we can appreciate those themes even if we don’t accept the strange world presented in the books. One of the interesting elements found in the fictional world of Harry Potter is a device known as the Pensieve. The Pensieve was a stone basin that was covered with

Happy Birthday! We love you and miss you. -Your family & Friends


mystical symbols and it permitted anyone who used it to view memories that had been previously stored in the form of glowing silver threads. A Pensieve would allow a person to view past memories in a sort of virtual reality fashion, almost as if they were real again, and these memories could be either their own or those of others. Although it might be nice to be able to have a wand that you could use as a flashlight at one moment or a tool to accomplish almost any other task at another moment, or an invisibility cloak under which you could hide and eavesdrop on the conversations of others, I tend to think I would prefer to have a Pensieve so as to relive my memories as if they were living realities. One of the most fascinating aspects of the Pensieve is that it per-

mitted people to see memories in their purest form. It didn’t matter if a person hadn’t remembered something exactly or failed to notice certain details in the first place, for the Pensieve corrected such human frailties and revealed events as they actually happened. Real memories are rarely like that because we all view events, activities and experiences from our own vantage point, and it is extremely difficult for us to stand completely outside of our own perspective and see life the way others experience it, or “walk in their shoes,” as people sometimes say. Now we human beings may need a special tool like a Pensieve in order to see life in its purest form, but Jesus did not need such a device in order to see each of us for who we really are. In fact, Jesus could look into a per-

son’s eyes and see their very thoughts, and so he really knew and knows what it is like to walk in our shoes. This also seems to suggest that God’s memory is crystal clear and no detail escapes God’s perception. This being the case, the promise that God’s forgiveness is accompanied by the assurance that He will “remember” our “sins no more” (e.g. Isaiah 43:25; Jeremiah 31:34; Hebrews 8:12) becomes all the more important. After all, God remembers even the minutest moment of our lives, and so it is an act of sheer grace that God chooses not to remember our sins. This is the sort of forgiveness that all of us need – the kind of forgiveness that forgets our sins so completely that even a Pensieve can’t recover them.

Annual “Toys, Games, and Trains� exhibit opens at Historical Museum BETH BROCK

You never get too old for Christmas. Children, young and old alike, are enjoying the Kings Mountain Historical Museum’s annual “Toys, Games, and Trains� exhibit. The exhibit, which opened Saturday, Nov. 24, is an exhibit that folks look forward to each Christmas season. The museum is decked out for Christmas, welcoming everyone who enters. Old Salem Moravian cookies and cheese straws are available for purchase in the museum gift shop. The exhibit this year has expanded to include dolls, games, and other toys from years gone by. There are dolls from the 1930s with painted faces and hand made clothing. One of the dolls is modeled after Sonja Henie, a three-time Norwegian Olympic figure skating champion (1928, 1932, 1936). The Henie doll is on loan from Pat Plonk. There is a replica of Kings Mountain Farm Center, which was Ted Ledford’s store, circa 1954. It is on loan from Margaret Ledford. Many of the furnishings were made by the owner. A Howdy Doody board game is on loan from Pucky Nantz. Most of the toys are on loan from Kings Mountain residents or belong to the KMHM or Earl Scruggs Center and Cleveland County Historical Society.

KM PARADE: Santa comes to town Saturday at 3pm From page 1A KMHS wrestling team. Byers is the first Olympian from North Carolina to wrestle for the United States. He lives in Colorado. Prior to the parade, he will be honored from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. by 238 Cherokee Grill at a reception and dutch treat luncheon at the former Battleground Restaurant location on S. Railroad Avenue.

But what brings people back, year after year, is the interactive train exhibit which is set up by the Piedmont ‘S’ Gaugers. With a push of a button, kids of all ages can make a Ferris wheel spin around, launch a hot air balloon, as well as push buttons for other interactive features. The trains run around a small town and a wooded area covered with snow. There is a burning house with fire trucks and firemen putting out the fire. At the train station, people are hustling

around, possibly waiting on the train. The holiday exhibits will be on display until Jan. 5. * On Dec. 1, there will be Civil War re-enactors from 10 am – 2pm. Demonstrations include paper cutting, weaving, and spinning. From 5:30 – 8:30 pm, there will be candlelight tours of the Robert Barber Home. * On Dec. 15, Santa will be at the museum from 1 – 3 pm. Admission to the museum is free, but donations are appreciated. The KM Historical Museum is open Tuesday – Saturday, from 10 – 4 pm. It is open on Sunday from 1 – 4 pm during the Christmas season. The museum is located at 100 E. Mountain Street in Kings Mountain. Stephanie Walsh is the director/curator of the museum.

The historic Henry Howzer House was open to the public Saturday. The house is owned by the National Park Service and borders Kings Mountain National Military Park. Throughout the day, there were two shuttles, pulled by tractors, to transport visitors from the parking lot to the home site. It was a refreshing ride, with a little chill in the air. The shuttles were provided by Ed Brown’s Rodeo of Blacksburg, and Buford Street Hardware of Gaffney. On the ride to the house, the Howzer family graveyard could be seen on the right. Arriving at the home site, one saw volunteers from the South Carolina Rangers and Kings Mountain Chamber of Commerce dressed in full costume from the Revolutionary War era. They were ready to provide information, or just a seat around the fire to chat. Inside the house, there were area artisans demonstrating their talents. Lynn Eskridge of Kings Mountain was busily weaving baskets. Thomas Kelly Pauley of York was painting an oil por-

In the main room, two of Pauley’s finished portraits were on display. One of the portraits features Col. Frederick Hambright.

Herdmans around, the angel of the Lord is more likely to bring the shepherds a black eye than good news. The spirit of the season, however, works its transformative magic. As the Herdmans experience the nativity story for the first time, they respond with surprising honesty. They’re outraged that Mary must give birth in a stable, furious that Herod attempts to kill the baby, awed by the appearance of the angel. The worst kids in the neighborhood connect with the wonder and mystery of the story, and the congregation rediscovers the pageant’s true power.

5 Mountaineers All-Big South 3A

Kings Mountain freshman Tiffani Thompson passes the ball to teammate Monique Petty after grabbing a rebound in last week’s game with Shelby and Donald L. Parker Gymnasium. Kings Mountai won 52-48 in overtime.

KM girls open season with OT win over Shelby By GARY STEWART Kings Mountain High’s girls won only three games all of last basketball season, but got their 2012-13 season off to an exciting start Tuesday night at Donald L. Parker Gymnasium with a 52-48 overtime win over the Shelby Lady Lions. The Lady Mountaineers got outstanding play from several players, including last year’s go-to player Monique Petty, Taquisha Smith and newcomers Tiffani Thompson and Alecia Wade. Petty dominated play inside against a taller Shelby team with game-highs of 18 points and 25 rebounds. Thompson, a freshman who led Kings Mountain Middle School to the TriCounty Conference championship last season, chipped in 17 points and 20 rebounds. Wade, a junior transfer from Burns, scored only two points but was also a force inside, grabbing 12 rebounds and making several big plays in the fourth period as the KM ladies came from behind. Smith, who finished with eight points, got some key points from the wing and inside drives in the fourth quarter. Shelby broke out to an early lead and held the upper hand at the end of each of the first three quarters. The Lions were out front 13-6 at the first quarter break, 22-18 at intermission and 36-31 going into the fourth period. But strong inside play by the Lady Mountaineers brought them from behind in the final four minutes of regulation. They tied the game at 44-all with 2:29 remaining when Thompson rebounded two of her own missed shots,

Kings Mountain High placed five players on the All-Big South 3A Conference football team for the 2012 season. Mountaineers selected by the league coaches were senior quarterback Jonathan Clark, senior running back/defensive back Michael Douglas, junior running back DaShon Guest, sophomore offensive lineman Graham Keeter and sophomore wide receiver Xavier Johnson. Clark, a two-year all-conference selection, finished his Mountaineer career as the school’s all-time career passing leader. He hit 162 of 298 passes for 2,125 yards his senior year to give him a career total of 4,131 yards. He broke the old record of 3,921 yards set by Michael Roberts from 2005-2008. Roberts was a quarterback coach for the Mountaineers this season. Guest led the Mountaineers in rushing with 1,397 yards and scoring with 104 points. He became the 22nd player in Mountaineer history to rush for over 1,000 yards in a single season. He also caught 18 passes for 294 yards. Johnson had a school single-season record of 55 pass receptions. He accumulated 871 yards in the air, the most ever for a sophomore. With two years remaining he is already over half-way to becoming the school’s all-time See ALL, 3C

Kings Mountain’s Taquisha Smith drives the lane against a tall Shelby defense in Friday’s non-conference basketball game at Parker Gym. KM won its opening season game 52-48 in overtime.

KM GIRLS: Open season with big win From Page 1B Mountaineers up 49-48, and that would prove to be the game winner. But, not before some anxious moments. Petty hit a free throw with 1:45 remaining to give the Mountaineers a 50-48 lead. Shelby missed several shots down the stretch and each time Thompson, Petty or Wade would get the rebound. Sophomore Talajah Hutchens hit the second of two free throws to put KM up 51-48 with 40 seconds remaining. Thompson rebounded a missed Shelby 3-point attempt with 17 seconds left, and Hutchens was able to hit one of two free throws with 10 seconds left for the final margin. First-year head coach Mike Harris, who assisted Amos Myles last season, was ecstatic to see his youngsters win on their first night out. “The girls were relentless tonight,� he said. “For the most part we played pretty good defense. We need to learn to take care of the ball better on offense.� The Lady Mountaineers

will likely be spending a lot of practice time trying to eliminate turnovers and being more consistent from the foul line. They hit only 15 of 34 from the foul line and turned the ball over 33 times. “That’s too much,� Harris said. “But I have to give the girls credit. Even when they let the tempo of the game get away from them, they went back and got a defensive stop. They just need to learn how to win and we took a step towards that tonight. They did a good job holding Shelby scoreless in overtime. That was a nice way to start the season.� Kings Mountain’s boys won the opening tip and took a 2-0 lead, but it was all Shelby after that as Aubrey Hollifield’s 2A power dominated the Mountaineers 9055. Shelby ran to a 26-4 first quarter lead and was on top 46-19 at intermission. The Lions led 70-36 going into the fourth quarter. Two returning starters who led the Lions to the 2A state semifinals last season put on a shooting and defen-

sive exhibition. Gabe DeVoe led all scorers with 26 points and Donte Falls scored 24 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked five shots. Shelby hit 67% from the floor, including 74% from two-point land. Junior James Tillman was Kings Mountain’s only force inside with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Chad Sanders, making his first varsity start, added 10 points. The Kings Mountain teams were scheduled to host East Gaston last night. They travel to Cherryville Friday and Burns Tuesday. They have another date with Shelby on Friday, Dec. 7 at Shelby. GIRLS GAME KM (52) - Petty 18, Thompson 17, Smith 8, D. Roberts 3, Harris 2, Hutchens 2, Wade 2. Shelby (48) - Little 16, Littlejohn 12, Coleman 9, West 5, Browner 4, Kadaja 2. BOYS GAME Shelby (90) - DeVoe 26, Wray 12, Falls 24, Dorsey 6, Cannon 5, Hillman 7, Clark 3, Fuller 5, Webber 2.

Kings Mountain wrestlers placed second in the North Meck invitational this weekend. KM had two champions Austin Champion and Cody Griffith. Front are Markel Hemphill, left, and Jonathan Clark, who finished second. Back row, left to right, Zach Melton (second), Alex Austin (third), Austin Champion (first), Colby Bailey (second) and Cody Griffith (first).

ALL CONFERENCE: 5 Mountaineers selected From 1B leading receiver. Douglas was one of the most versatile players for the Mountaineers, playing a number of positions. He started in the defensive secondary, and after Trevin Torres went down to injury midway of the season he began spending time at receiver and running back. He caught six passes for 56 yards and was the team’s #2 rusher with 256 yards on 37 carries. Keeter improved tremendously on the line after spending his freshman year on the JV team. At 6-4, 250 pounds he will be drawing a lot of looks from college scouts over the next two seasons. League champion South Point led in all-conference

selections with 11 and also had the offensive player of the year in fullback Tyler Bray, defensive player of the year in linebacker Daishon Davis, and coach of the year in Mickey Lineberger. Junior Kerrion Moore of Hunter Huss, who is the son of former Kings Mountain player Jeff Lockhart of Grover, was selected as special teams player of the year. South Point’s all-conference selections included Devan Robbins, Jaquan Brooks, Deonte Gaston, Jon Robert Stewart, Deion Jones, Aaron Biggerstaff, Mykel Davis, Nimar Smith, Tanner Muse, Richard Dunning and Camden Van Pelt. Second place Crest placed nine players on the team, including Jarrel Long, Dominique Roseboro, PJ Brooks, Jalin Moore, Quin-

ton Patterson, Ryan Hillman, Omar Brooks, Natron Gidney and Dane Rogers. Ashbrook was represented by Tre Brice, Demetrius Oliver, Grant Stafford, D.J. Vanderpuye, Anthony Hambright, Derek Weber, Isaac Wright and Marquez Robbs. Forestview placed Logan Bradley, Bishop Ford, Mykelti Armstrong, Josh Mills, Calvin Johnson, Collin Munson and Marlon Carter. Hunter Huss players selected were Norquan Otis, Delmonte McClure, Chad Mackins, Cody Jones, Ramon Woods and Andrew Jordan. Representing North Gaston were Corey Staley, James Patterson, Xzavier Spriggs and Nick Haskin.
