Local farmers could get pay for losses Byron McMurray, County Executive Director for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Cleveland County, announced today that ranchers and livestock producers may be eligible for assistance from the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) for grazing losses incurred in 2016. According to McMurry, “Cleveland County recently met qualifying drought ratings that ‘trigger’ eligibility for the Livestock Forage Disaster Program on improved pasture, native pasture and sorghum forage.” The Livestock Forage Disaster Program provides compensation to livestock producers who have suffered grazing losses due to drought or fire. For losses due to drought, qualifying drought ratings are determined using the U.S. Drought Monitor located at http://www.drought.unl. edu/dm/monitor.html. Qualifying fires are those occurring on rangeland managed by a federal agency and the producer is prohibited by the federal agency from grazing the normal permitted livestock on the managed rangeland due to the fire. Eligible livestock include alpacas, beef cattle, buffalo, beefalo, dairy cattle, deer, elk, emus, equine (working only), goats, llamas, poultry, reindeer, sheep or swine that have been or would have been grazing the eligible grazing land or pastureland during the normal grazing period. Applications are required for 2016 losses. To expedite applications, producers who experienced losses in 2016 are encouraged to collect records documenting their losses. Supporting documents may include information related to grazing leases or federal grazing permits, contract grower agreements, and more. “We encourage producers to contact our office for an appointment, and to learn what records are required to apply for assistance,” said McMurry. For more information, contact the Cleveland County FSA office at 704471-0235 ext. 2. Information can also be obtained online at: disaster.fsa.usda. gov.

Fun it on this side of eternity. I watched as that aged times versus said times side honor guard folded the flag. by side. Such is life.

They had a little difficulty toward the end, but lovingly presented it, “On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation.” My mind mused upon the millions who had served under that flag. Followed it into countless wars and conflicts around the world. I thought of the multiplied thousands who gave their lives, limbs and health for the freedoms that flag represents.” Duty, Honor, Country.” And the very moment I was watching that sacred flag being folded, I thought of the ungrateful, non-productive individuals, rioting and burning that flag in our streets. I came to attention, and put my hand over my

heart until the presentation of the flag was complete. Under my breath I said a sincere thank you to that Vet we were burying and all those men and women who have served and are serving our nation. We owe them a debt we cannot repay. Very few beyond the small group on that little hillside took note, or even knew of the proceedings that day. My words were not recorded; just my handwritten notes document what was said concerning an American vet I did not know. And those ungrateful rioters will fill the news. Those tearing down will be filmed and played on our news screens and written

of in our papers. We cannot help that, but we CAN honor our flag. We can stand to attention, salute and cover our heart. We can weep when we sing the Star Spangled Banner and see Old Glory unfurled. We can thank our Vets and current service personnel. We can be unashamedly, vocal, patriotic Americans. Thankful to our Heavenly Father that He allowed us to live in the greatest nation on earth. One Nation, Under God, with Liberty and Justice for All! The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave! Let’s just do it, while we have breath and strength to do so.

William Andrew Mauney house, open to the public for tour

The 18th Century historic Barber house, 1810-45, will be open to the public for a free tour Saturday as part of the Winter Wonderland festivities in town. The house, located below the KM Historical Museum, will be open from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. for “Spirit of Christmas Past” and from 5-7 p.m. for candlelight tour of the house and hot apple cider with cookies by the firelight.

Historic 18th Century Barber House open for free tours Saturday The log-framed Robert Barber house was donated to the Kings Mountain Historical Museum in 2002 by H. O. (Toby) Williams, grandson of George W. Ware, who bought the house in 1885 after the death of Robert Barber's wife, Sarah. Tenants who worked the Ware family farm lived in the house until the 1950s. The free tour Saturday will include history of Christmas celebrations by Susan Goforth and Linda Bell who will conduct a tour of the historical 18th century home. Each log was numbered, disassembled and moved to its new loction and many volunteers and craftsmen worked hard to reconstruct this structure which is of the late Federal architectural style in the hall and parlor floor plan and two chimneys were commonly used during this time. The construction techniques and nails used in the original house are also from this same period. The two rooms on the first floor had horizontal pine siding. The ceilings were also

The siding from the walls in the garret or loft has been recycled to the first floor to complete one room. The interior walls in the hall have been white washed as was the fashion at the time. The enclosed box stairs to the loft and the closet are original to the house. The second floor was normally used as sleeping quarters for children and storage areas. The two stone chimneys, with brick tops and fireboxes, have been reconstruted. Eventually there will be a detached kitchen for

cooking. Some of the logs used in reconstructing the house ae replacement logs from the Robert Patterson log house built around 1800-1810 and located on Dixon School Road. Mae Humphries, owner, gave the Museum permission to remove some of the logs from the collapsed original house. You can recognize these logs by their larger size, being oak instead of pine and no furring strip marks. Barber descendants live in Kings Mountain.

The restored William Andrew Mauney house, 104 Battleground Avenue, offers a window to the past. Mary ( Mrs. Charles) Neisler, who restored the house from 1997-2000, will conduct a free tour of the home of Kings Mountain's first mayor which was built in the Civil War era and once was Mauney Brothers Mercentile Store which the family added onto with four rooms and a loft. The tour is a feature of the Winter Wonderland festivities which ushers in the Christmas season in Kings Mountain Saturday, Dec. 3. Mrs. Neisler will open the house from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. The W. A. Mauney House was designated a local landmark by the Historic Landmarks Commission at the urging of Mrs. Neisler who took the restoration project on as a labor of love and worked for three years to develop the house as a landmark and with renovation beginning in May 1999 and completion of the restoration in August 2000 The house had no plumbing or electricity and gas lighting was utilitzed by the Mauneys who lived in the house about three years. It was built of old pine and the floors and the front door are an original part of the house. “I would love for people to come see the house which is nearly 150 years old,'' she said. Fixing the house cost as much as building a new one

The William Andrew Mauney house, the home of the first mayor, will be open to the public for a tour on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Mrs. Charles Neisler, who restored the house at 104 Battleground Avenue ( across from the old overhead bridge) will conduct the tour. There is no admission charge. in 1997 and citizens donated money to help restore the house. It is the city's oldest unchanged house built in 1870 - 1874 and is a historic landmark owned by Kings Mountain Historic Home Preservation, Inc. It is located in the first designated Central School historic district in the city which covers a four block area anchored by the 1933 two-story brick school. Mrs. Neisler said that in 1997 Will and June Herndon asked her to restore the house which was the property of the estate of Virginia Mauney Herndon, mother of Jim and Will Herndon. The Herndon brothers had donated two lots behind the old post office to the city when the old post office building was planned to house the Kings Mountain Police Department. The

city scrapped plans for the post office in favor of a new structure on the site of the old city hall and offered the post office property as a museum. The two lots behind the present Kings Mountain Historical Museum were donated to the museum in the spring of 2001 to be used as a site for the log cabin donated to the museum by H. O. (Toby) Williams. The log cabin, the historic Barber House, will be open to the public on Dec. 3 from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. with free admission. The house will be decorated for the holidays and visitors will learn a bout the history of Christmas celebrations and participate in traditional craft demonstrations led by 18th century costumed interpreters.

Recently, I asked readers for information on the First National Bank of Kings Mountain. Since then, I’ve learned a great deal about the history the bank and of the Teller window once housed inside. Historian Bonnie Mauney Summers wrote, “The oldest National Bank in Cleveland County was the First National Bank of Kings Mountain. It began as the Bank of Kings Mountain in January, 1900 and received its national charter six months later, on June 25th.” “In the 1960’s the bank was located on the corner of Battleground and Mountain Streets. By then, it merged with the First Union National Bank of Charlotte, North Carolina.” I remember banking there when I was young, walking through the big front doors and up to the Teller window with my mom. I remember walking home past the “new bank” under construction and peeking through knot holes in the fence to check the progress. Little did I know I was witnessing the end of an era. Both Mary Greene and Scott Neisler shared that the Teller window in the old First National Bank of Kings Mountain had been sold to Gus’ 49er in Charlotte. Mary remembered the window well and even mentioned its brass railing. Scott noted that the Teller window had ornate decoration at each post that resembled Mercury, the god of shopkeepers and merchants. “The brass works weren’t that tall,” Scott said, “maybe 18 inches high.” I once visited Gus’ 49er for a wedding reception and the facility was like a museum, filled with all types of memorabilia. The Kokenes Family owned this and several other restaurants in Charlotte. I discovered that UNC Charlotte had information on Gus’ 49er and the auction held when the restaurant’s collection was liquidated in January 1996. From their records, I learned that the Teller win-

dow had been acquired by First National Bank from the Independence Trust Company that had been in the Independence Building in downtown Charlotte. Architect Frank Milburn designed the building that had been located on the northwest corner of Trade and Tryon Streets. In 1908, a reporter for The News and Observer of Raleigh, N.C wrote that the only skyscraper in the State" was "being constructed" in Charlotte. In an article published in The Charlotte Observer on May 18, 1908, Frank P. Milburn boasted that a "new 12-story and basement steel-frame skyscraper" was underway in Charlotte, which would be "the first building of this type and the most expensive office building in the State." Two floors were added later, making the building 14 stories tall. B.S. Neill became the Cashier for the First National Bank of Kings Mountain in 1931, having worked at the Independence Trust Company just prior. In 1933 President Hoover ordered a bank holiday and many banks didn’t reopen, including the Independence Trust Company. Sometime after that, the Teller window was brought to Kings Mountain. I suspect Mr. Neill facilitated that. Reading the Lilly Auction Company’s list, I found item #92: “Teller window and Brass Railings. From Independence Trust Company (Charlotte) dated 1908.” A handwritten note indicates it sold for $2,000. And the folks at UNCC noted it had been acquired by Gus’ 49er

from Kings Mountain. So, now I know the Teller window had a grand life in the Independence Trust Company on the Corner of Trade and Tryon in Charlotte. It had been a fixture in the first steel skyscraper in the state of North Carolina and resided there for more than 20 years. Can you imagine the transactions that crossed its counter? When the Independence Trust Company failed, the Teller window was brought to Kings Mountain and had a second life here. It played a role in the growth of our community when textiles boomed and many admired its beauty. After the First National Bank of Kings Mountain merged with First Union National Bank relocating to their new building across Mountain Street, the Teller window was considered a relic of the past and sold to Gus’ 49er. It remained there until the auction in January of 1996. Remember I mentioned the Kokenes family before? Well, they also owned the Open Kitchen in Charlotte. George Lublaneski’s wife worked there for many years. And, for a time, George owned the old bank building. So, I think we have found the players who got the Teller window both to and from Kings Mountain. Now, I’m on a quest to find its current home. I’ll keep you posted. Oh, and if anyone has a picture of the Teller window, please let me know.

GC truck driving program graduates 17

These students received music awards at North School on November 18. They will be among those performing at Patriot’s Park Winter Wonderland, December 9 in downtown Kings Mountain.

DALLAS, N.C. – Seventeen students graduated from the Gaston College Truck Driver Training Program at a ceremony held on Tuesday, October 25. The training program, which is in collaboration with Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute (CCC&TI), is certified by the Professional Truck Driving Institute. By completing the program, the graduates are prepared to operate tractor-trailer rigs, acquire a commercial driver license (CDL), and become a professional driver. Four of the graduates were recipients of State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation “People Helping People” Scholarships, which provided financial assistance for them to complete the program. Those graduates are Kendrick Cherry, Bradley Criswell, David Croome, and Dantavius Thompson. Also graduating are Gevin Allison, Corey Atkinson, Martell Blackmon, Marquis Brown-Cole, Troy Kay, Demetrius Lee, Shawna McClain, Steven McGuinness, Christopher Mickey, Taylor Peyton, Joey Roseman, Joseph Thompson, and Patrick Willock. The lead instructor for the Truck Driver Training Program is Myron Greene. The other instructors are Lionel Corpening, Harold Curtis, Bill Morris, Bob Roberts, Gary Sanders, Wayne Starnes, and Jim Womack. Speaking at the graduation ceremony, which took place in

the Myers Center on the Dallas Campus of Gaston College, were Roger Chester, Director of Truck Driver Training; Sandra Patrick, Senior Financial Services Officer for SECU; and Ray Moss, a mentor to the students in the program. The Truck Driver Training Program at Gaston College, a collaborative program with Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, gives students in the program the necessary training required to operate tractor-trailer rigs, get their commercial driver’s license (CDL) and become professional truck drivers. The next Truck Driver Training class begins in February 2017, with a mandatory orientation session on the Gaston College Dallas Campus on Wednesday, February 8, at 10 a.m. The 8.5 week class, which meets at the training center in Cherryville, N.C., consists of classroom instruction, range driving, and road driving. The classes are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting on February 27 and ending on May 2, 2017. The cost for tuition and fees for the class is $1,882, well below the average cost for commercial truck driving schools. A payment plan is available, and there are opportunities for scholarships to partially defray the cost of tuition and fees. For more info. contact Donna Blake at blake.donna@ or 704-922-2267.

To the church at Ephesus, Paul wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, . . . Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.â&#x20AC;? (Eph. 5:15, 20) The hymn writer, John H. Sammis wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trust and obey, for thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.â&#x20AC;? In the verses of that hymn, he acknowledges that there will be storms and valleys, difficult times, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change our response. We simply are to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trust and Obeyâ&#x20AC;? and be thankful. I imagine most of you have heard of Job in the Old Testament. Satan, with Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permission attacked him ferociously, and Job wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure if it was Satan or God that was against him. But he clung to his faith and in chapter 13, verse 15a, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Though He (God) slay me, yet will I trust in Him.â&#x20AC;? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about you, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I have been tested to the extent that Job was yet. I can only pray that should those days ever come, that I will have his faith. Oh yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another thing I am thankful for. Ephesians 2:8 says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Faith.â&#x20AC;?

Salvation Army seeks bell ringer volunteers Special to the Herald They are a familiar sight – and sound – of Christmas. They are the Salvation Army red kettle ringers – volunteers that you often see when you are doing your shopping, steadily ringing the bell that calls us all to give. This year the Salvation Army is asking YOU to be the one ring-

ing the bell. Volunteers are needed to fill the posts around the county. Hundreds of hands are needed each year to sustain the signature holiday sound, and the Army needs volunteers to sign up to keep it going through Christmas Eve. The red kettles are already in place at more than a dozen sites in Cleveland and Rutherford counties, with more to come in the days ahead. “Bell ringing is one of the easiest ways to help The Salvation

TOP LEFT: Tomiko Friday rings the familiar Salvation Army bell at the Kettle Kickoff event, held in uptown Shelby on Nov. 10, 2016. LEFT: Board member Joe Suttle adds a donation to the red kettle. BELOW: (Left to right) Board members Noel Manning, Inez Presson and Johnny Presson pose at the Kettle Kickoff event along with bell ringer volunteer Tomiko Friday, Board member Joe Suttle, Board Chair Chris Mabry, and Sgt. Les Ashby.

Army help those in need in our local communities,” says local commander Sgt. Les Ashby. Volunteers come from businesses large and small, Sunday school classes and civic groups, as well as families and individuals. “Everybody should do it at least once in their lives,” says bell ringing volunteer Carrie Williams. “I do it for the kids and families that need help. It’s such a good cause. Plus, I really enjoy being out there.” Sponsorship is another option for those that cannot, for whatever reason, volunteer as a ringer. Sponsors donate what it costs the Army to pay ringers, so that the kettles can stay open throughout the season. It takes about $100 to sponsor a kettle for one day. “The money raised in the red kettles creates a year of hope for families and individuals in need,” says Ashby. “Pocket change opens doors for at-risk youth, provides food for empty tables, and helps families stay warm and safe in their homes. This season, every cent helps us turn the hope of those we serve into reality.” The 2016 Red Kettle campaign goal is $100,000. The Salvation Army relies on the money raised through the Red Kettle campaign to provide Christmas to local

families in need and to safeguard the wellbeing of the community through year-round programming and social services. The campaign ends on December 24, 2016. Those interested in volunteering to ring the red kettle bells should call Sgt. Mary Ashby at 704-692-8515 or stop by the Salvation Army office at 311 N. Lafayette St., Shelby, weekdays from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m. For complete information about The Salvation Army’s Christmas ministry and other services, call 704482-0375, or check out and click on Shelby.

How Much You’ll Pay for Medicare in 2017 Dear Savvy Senior, I know there won’t be much of a costof-living increase in Social Security benefits next year but what about Medicare? How will the 0.3 percent Social Security raise affect our Part B monthly premiums in 2017? Inquiring Beneficiary Dear Inquiring, Considering the rising cost of health care coverage, the news regarding your Medicare costs for 2017 is not too bad. Here’s what you can expect. Part B Premiums Because the Social Security Administration is giving out a measly 0.3 percent cost of living increase starting in January – that equates to about a $4 to $5 monthly increase on average – the 2017 Part B monthly premium for about 70 percent of Medicare recipients will increase only about $4 to $5. Thanks to the Social Security Act’s “hold harmless” provision, Medicare cannot pass along premium increases greater than the dollar increase in their Social Security checks.

So, if your Medicare Part B monthly premium is currently $104.90, you can expect it to be around $109 (on average) in 2017. Or, if you signed up for Part B for the first time in 2016, your $121.80 monthly premium will rise to around $127 (on average) next year. Some Will Pay More Unfortunately, the hold harmless provision does not protect all Medicare recipients. New Medicare enrollees (those who will enroll in 2017), beneficiaries who are directly billed for their Part B premium, and current beneficiaries who have deferred claiming their Social Security will pay more. If you fit into any of these categories, your Medicare Part B premium will be $134 per month in 2017, up from $121.80. The hold harmless rule also does not protect high-income Medicare beneficiaries who already pay higher Part B premiums because their annual incomes are above $85,000 for an in-

dividual or $170,000 for a couple. If you fit into this category, here’s what you’ll pay for your Part B premium next year, based on your 2015 tax returns. • Individuals with incomes of $85,000 to $107,000, or married couples filing joint tax returns with incomes of $170,000 to $214,000, will pay $187.50 per month. • Individuals earning $107,000 to $160,000 (couples $214,000 to $320,000) will pay $267.90. • Individuals with incomes of $160,000 to $214,000 (couples $320,000 to $428,000) will pay $348.30. • Individuals with incomes over $214,000 or couples above $428,000 will pay $428.60. Another increase high-income beneficiaries (those with incomes over $85,000, or $170,000 for joint filers) need to be aware of is the surcharge on Part D premiums. Affluent seniors that have a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan will pay an additional $13.30 to $76.20 per month, depending on their income, on top of their

regular Part D premiums. Deductibles and Co-Pays Other changes that will affect all Medicare beneficiaries include the Part B deductible, which will increase to $183 in 2017 from $166 in 2016. The Part A (hospital insurance) annual deductible will also go up to $1,316 in 2017 (it’s currently $1,288) for hospital stays up to 60 days. That increases to $329 per day for days 6190, and to $658 a day for days 91 and beyond. And the skilled nursing facility coinsurance for days 21-100 will also increase to $164.50 per day, up from $161 in 2016.

Kings Mountain Parade Lineup This is the initial line-up for the Kings Mountain Christmas parade which will be held Saturday at 3:00. Entry applications are still being received at City Hall.

The history of holiday lights sired a way to better advertise his invention, so he decided to make the most of the holiday season and put his light bulbs on display. According to a 2003 article in American Heritage magazine titled “The Wizard of Your Christmas Tree,” Edison strung incandescent bulbs all around the compound of his Menlo Park, NJ, laboratory. Edison constructed an eight-mile underground wiring system in order to power this grand light display. Because the laboratory was situated along the railroad that passed between Manhattan and Philadelphia, thousands of people were able to see the display. The concept of electric holiday lights took a bit of time to catch on. Edison’s friend and associate Edward Johnson was tasked with stringing together colored lights in 1882 and placing them on an evergreen tree. Johnson hand-wired 80 red, white and blue light bulbs. In 1895, President Grover Cleveland requested the White House family Christmas tree be illuminated by multi-colored

electric light bulbs. In 1903, when General Electric began to offer pre-assembled kits of holiday lights, stringed lights were reserved for the wealthy and electrically savvy. For example, in 1903 a single string of electric lights cost $12, or around $300 today. It would take several more years before holiday lights became a national tradition. On Christmas Eve 1923, President Calvin Coolidge began the country’s celebration of Christmas by lighting the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse located south of the White House with 3,000 electric lights. Today, illuminated strands of lights have become a large part of holiday celebrations and have even been adopted for use during various year-round events. Such lights can be a beautiful and festive addition to many celebrations.


Holiday celebrants employ holiday lights in various ways. Certain individuals may be content to hang lights on their Christmas trees and call their decorating complete. Others may get their holiday jollies by making sure each square inch of their home is covered in twinkling lights. Still, other people prefer the more subdued effect of lights framing one picture window of the house. The tradition of Christmas lights stretches back to early modern Germany when people used candles to decorate Christmas trees in Christian homes. Those candles were harbingers of what would come when electric lights replaced gas and other open flame illuminating devices that were commonplace prior to the 20th century. Thomas Edison, the inventor of the first successful practical light bulb, also created the first strand of electric lights that would be used in holiday decorating. By 1880, Edison had standard incandescent light bulbs well sorted out and de-

Lighting a Christmas tree may seem like child's play, but time and again people struggle with the task. Untangling wires and wrapping them around boughs can be nerve wracking, but lighting a tree doesn't have to be a chore when you follow some tips from the professionals. First, keep in mind that wrapping lights around the tree horizontally is more work and often doesn't produce a multi-dimensional effect. Rather, string the lights from the trunk up to the top, working vertically. This is actually how the tree decorators at Rockefeller Center in New York City do the famous

tree year after year. This method helps eliminate tangled wires and empty spots. Remember to plug in the strands of lights before you begin to check for burntout bulbs and to adjust the spacing of lights to prevent dark spots. Think about varying light bulb sizes to add more dimension. String an inner layer of small LED white lights to produce an inner glow on the tree before adding larger, colored lights on top to increase visual appeal. Just be sure to match the same wattage of the lights so that you do not have power surges and can prolong the life of the bulbs.
