KM featured on Queen City News

Last week, Carolina’s own Queen City News. WJZY FOX 46, featured Kings Mountain during their 5 p.m. broadcast. Anchor Alicia Barnes kicked off the coverage from Patriots Park, showing footage of the downtown area and introducing more in-depth stories done by reporter Maureen Wurtz. Kings Mountain Middle School’s cheerleaders ended the first segment, throwing the story back to the studio and Brien Blakley cheering, “Back to you Brian!”

Segments included downtown history, Bill Ware and his love of trains, Mayor Neisler sharing info about the city, and Dale Lieser who shares his gift of music at Summit Place.

The next segment began with an introduction and a comment that downtown history is an emotion, a feeling of community that we all strive for in life. It began with images from Patriots Park, Railroad Avenue, and along Mountain Street.

The story featured in-

terviews with several merchants. UnCommon Artisans shop owner Cobb Lahti was interviewed and described her shop saying, “I try to make my little corner of the world as happy as I can.” Iris Hubbard, of 133 West, shared that it is the people of Kings Mountain that make it so special.

One of the most humorous portions of this segment was an interview with Jim Champion who manages the Joy Theater. As luck would have it, during the interview a train passed and Jim handled it in stride, stressing the importance of projection during theatrical challenges such as that.

He also chuckled saying that his wife and children often joke with him that he is having an affair with “Joy,” because he spends so much time at the theater.

The segment ended with these words, “Community is what so many people

Mountain Holiday’s finds humor in the small things

If you aren’t familiar with Mountain Holiday’s humorous Facebook posts, hosted by Cam and Dave, you are really missing out. The duo, Cameron King and Dave Allen, have chemistry that keeps people coming back to their page to see what’s next. The posts remain on their page, so if you missed some earlier ones just scroll down for a laugh or two.

In the last few months, Mountain Holidays sidewalk sandwich board sign has shared the same humor as their weekly Facebook posts. This week, temperatures dropped dramatically in the region. In response, they posted on their sign, “The weather just went down from 90 to 55 like it saw a state trooper.” You cannot help but laugh. No doubt, it is an homage to Dave Allen’s career as a State Trooper… and it is funny.

In addition to their postings, Mountain Holiday also shared they will be having a “Hide and Eeeek” event from October 4 – 29. Shoppers can search for tiny pumpkins hidden throughout the store for free gifts and discounts when paying. One pumpkin allowed

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

spot and avoid possible cyberthreats:

Governor Roy Cooper has proclaimed October as Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Following the damage and destruction Hurricane Ian left across North Carolina and the Southeast last week, state officials are warning all North Carolinians to be on higher alert for online scams and threats.

“This is a timely reminder that cybercriminals are out there waiting to take advantage of people in crisis and those who want to help them,” Governor Cooper said Tuesday, just days after the storm brought heavy rainfall, strong winds and power outages across the state.

Posing as official representatives of disaster aid organizations or charities, scammers frequently use social engineering techniques, like phishing emails, texts, and phone calls, to solicit personal and financial information and to gain access to devices and networks that can often hold sensitive data.

For help finding legitimate ways to support charities or contribute to disaster relief, check out tips from the Attorney General’s Office at

Cyberattacks happen every day and North Carolinians should take steps to protect themselves. To

• Do not respond to unsolicited emails requesting money or seeking information about the people in your family or at your job.

• If a message seems out of the ordinary – like a request for money or sensitive information – but you think you should respond, follow up by phone or in person with the sender.

• Avoid clicking links or attachments in suspicious emails and text messages. When in doubt, check with the sender first by phone or in person.

• Pay attention to web and email addresses. Malicious websites can look identical to trusted sites, but the URL or email address might use a different spelling or domain.

• Avoid sending sensitive, personally identifiable information (such as your date of birth, Social Security Number, account numbers, etc.) or passwords via email, text, or chat – regardless of the recipient. If you must share this information, send using encrypted email.

• Keep software up to date. Make sure your devices are running the latest version of operating systems, software and web browsers.

The Governor’s warning comes at the start of Cybersecurity Awareness Month in North Carolina, proclaimed by Governor Cooper to encourage all

North Carolinians to make smart decisions when they go online.

“From health care and work to recreation and education, the internet is a critical tool for almost everything we do,” Governor Cooper said. “That’s why it’s so important that North Carolinians educate ourselves about cyberthreats and learn how to stay safe and avoid problems online.”

As part of this year’s campaign theme, See Yourself in Cyber, the N.C. Department of Information Technology will offer cybersecurity tips and best practices on social media using #BeCyberSmart and #CyberSecureNC throughout the month. Information is also posted at CyberSecureNC.

“No one is immune from cybercrime, but education and awareness are the best ways to avoid becoming a victim,” said State Chief Information Officer and NCDIT Secretary James Weaver, who oversees efforts to protect the state’s computer networks and data. “Making North Carolina safer involves increasing personal levels of cyber awareness – knowing not to click links on suspicious emails, recognizing the signs of online scams and protecting sensitive and confidential information.”

New food offerings available downtown

Uncommon Artisans announced they now offer a variety of items, including breakfast choices, starting at 7 a.m. in downtown Kings Mountain. They have also added a new latte machine.

Their newest local food

item is 133 west’s famous pimento cheese! Uncommon Artisans’ owner Cobb Lahti suggests, “Pair it with Ladybug Farms Bakery fresh bread to make a terrific grilled pimento cheese sandwich or heat it up to dip your favorite crackers.”

Spiritual Temperature

(Part 2 of the


I have lived in places where the weather and temperature were unpredictable. One day it was hot, the next day warm, and then cold the following day. I was always shocked that these varying temperatures would occur all in the same week. Just like these fluctuating temperatures, sometimes our attitudes, emotions, and thoughts


are fickle. Even our spiritual lives can be unstable and stale, but God desires that we have a passionate and growing relationship with him. Revelation 3:15-19 (NLT) says, “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will

spit you out of my mouth! You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your


Holy Spirit

When our walk with God seems to be dragging on, instead of vibrant and intimate, or our spiritual temperature is low, we can ask God to refresh and refill us with his Spirit. The Spirit will also help us to pray. Romans 8:2627 (ESV) says, “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And

he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” The Spirit of God is our Comforter and Guide. He will help us set the right spiritual temperature for our lives which is being hot and on fire for God. Then, we will be equipped to live effectively and powerfully for Christ!


“Lord, you are good and your mercy endures forever. I praise you for being a consuming fire that purifies my soul. Forgive me when I was lethargic concerning my relationship with you.

Thank you for being patient with me as I hold your hand on this walk of faith. I pray that your Holy Spirit and fire, will set me on fire always for you and your kingdom business. I ask that you take away anything in me that displeases you. Strengthen me to do your will. May your Spirit and Presence rest on me today and every day. I love you. In Jesus’ name I prayAmen.”

Plan your autumn adventure at Grandfather Mountain

Insider tips for visiting the Linville, N.C., nature preserve this fall

LINVILLE, N.C. – Fall is officially here, and the foliage on Grandfather Mountain, the not-for-profit nature park run by the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation, is showing signs that the seasonal color change is already underway.

Buckeyes have been changing to yellow throughout the mountain. These, and locusts, are among the first tree species that turn at Grandfather every year, while maples will also start to get some red hue early on. The changing colors of the leaves is tied to several things, like length of day, temperature, soil moisture and precipitation. Moist soil from August rain, warm temperatures during the day and cooler temperatures at night have triggered the trees to begin the process of entering winter dormancy.

“This year I think is shaping up to be a good one,” said Jesse Pope, president and executive director of the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation. “It’s really the perfect scenario up to today for good fall color because we’ve had a pretty wet summer – so, we’ve had good growth. The trees have good leaf foliage on them. The leaves have grown. They’re healthy. And, then in September, it’s dried out.

We’ve had a drier September than we did August, and the nights are starting to cool off. All that is the scenario for a good fall. We’re optimistic.”

Grandfather Mountain offers an ample display of fall color due to the park’s dramatic elevation change. Leaves begin turning at the highest elevations and gradually work down the slopes into the surrounding areas over several weeks. Typically, in mid-to-late September, the earliest colors at the mountain’s highest elevations begin to appear on the shrubs and low-growing flora that call the mountaintop home. Peak color toward the summit is usually early October. The lower sections of the park will often peak in mid-October. The views of fall color brightening up the low-lying valleys below can last through October, and

possibly beyond.

To help with your leaf-looking planning, follow the below recommendations to make the most of your mile-high adventures on the mountain.

Insider Tips for Visiting Grandfather Mountain in the Fall

• Book your timed entry and tickets in advance! Fall can be a busy time on the mountain, and you don’t want to miss out. Make your reservation online at www.

• Wanting to hike? Plan ahead and choose the right trail for you at Also, make sure to check the weather before your visit, dress appropriately (with multiple layers, including a waterproof jacket) and bring plenty of water and snacks!

• Check the schedule of

daily events before your trip to pinpoint what you’d like to see: (Tip: This schedule is also posted throughout the park via QR code.)

• Take part in the Fall Color Ramble, a 30-minute guided walk with park naturalists focused on the leaf change, at 2 p.m. now through Oct. 10 (with potentially more dates, depending on conditions). And, an AllDay Ramble is set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15. (More at

• Bring some layers in the car. Fall days at Grandfather are usually crisp and cool! (Tip: Visit our gift shops, located in the Wilson Center for Nature Discovery and Top Shop, for Grandfather Mountain apparel.)

• Look for fresh ways

to see the color show. The views up top are nice, but also check out the vantage points from the viewing areas around the bear and elk habitats. The Woods Walk is also nice!

• Look down. Fall is a great time to enjoy wildflowers and spot interesting fungi on the trails. Remember to leave nature for others to enjoy!

• Pack a picnic, or plan to eat lunch at Mildred’s Grill. (Tip: You can also get your food to-go so you can still enjoy the fresh air and views!)

• Speaking of a picnic, Grandfather has over 100 picnic spots – some with grills, ALL scenic! More at

• Need to recharge after a hike? Pick up a fall treat like fudge, a slice of pie or hot cocoa from Mildred’s.

• Remember that Grandfather’s lofty peaks are an advantage during fall. Even if you’ve missed “peak” fall color in the park, it’s pretty spectacular to see the vibrant leaves in the valleys below from the upper half of the mountain.

• Posting your photos to social media? Be sure to tag #grandfathermtn, and your photo may just make it to

In addition to the experiences offered inside the park in October, fresh fall color photos are posted throughout the month on the mountain’s website and social channels (@grandfathermtn), including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Mountaineers alone at the top of the Big South after 31-20 victory over South Point Red Raiders

At Cramer Friday

Trailing 10-0 at halftime, South Point’s Red Raiders used up the first nine and one-half minutes of the third quarter on a 19-yard drive to come to within 10-6, but the Mountaineers answered with touchdowns on their next three possessions to post their seventh win in a row 31-20 Friday night at John Gamble Stadium.

The win gives the Mountaineers a 7-0 record heading into their final three regular season games, which they hope to win and finish with the school’s first 10-0 regular season since 1964. South Point suffered its first defeat after a 6-0 start but the Red Raiders will rebound and, as always, be a tough out in the NCHSAA playoffs.

The Raiders used up 9 ½ minutes of the 12-minute third quarter on their touchdown drive but the Mountaineers dominated the rest of the game with a good mixture of running and passing and outstanding defense.

“That’s the best we’ve played all year,” said head coach Greg Lloyd. “We competed hard, we blocked well and we tackled well. We executed assignments well, we were

special teams played well. I was really proud of everybody.”

The play of the game came on the third play of the fourth quarter when the Mountaineers were facing a fourth and four at the South Point 40 yard line. Zay Smith got behind the Raider defense and quarterback Lamont Littlejohn connected with him on a touchdown pass that put the Mountaineers up 17-6 and basically wrapped up the win.

“I think that was the turning point,” Lloyd noted. “They had that long drive and didn’t score. And then Littlejohn hit Smith on that pass. It was a great throw, a great catch and the blocking was great. I think that got them off their game.”

That charged up the Mountaineer defense, too. It held the Raiders to three-and-out and KM took over at its own 31 with 8:26 left on the clock. Caleb Holland ran twice for 22 yards, and the Mountaineers immediately got 15 more when a South Point player was ejected for throwing a punch. Holland and Robert Kendrick took turns running the ball and Kendrick followed great

side of the KM line for a six-yard TD and a 24-6 lead with 6:39 remaining.

South Point returned a pooch kick to the 37 yard line and the Raiders connected on two passes to make the score 24-12 with 5:53 remaining.

The Raiders’ onside kick attempt went out of bounds at their 49. Facing

third and five at the Raider 45, Littlejohn hit Ja’Qualyn Sanders with a quick pass and with the help of good blocking from Dalton Smith and Michael Lubas he took it 40 yards to the South Point five. Two runs by Robert Kendrick put the Mountaineers at the Raider one and big AJ Richardson bulled

his way into the end zone and Jaden Ellis added the PAT to make it 31-12.

South Point’s big fullback Cam Medlock went off left tackle for an 11yard TD with 54 seconds remaining and Patrick Blee threw to his brother Jackson Blee for a two point conversion to account for the final score.

The Raiders did recover

The Mountaineers hope to keep their winning streak going Friday at Stuart Cramer where their pass defense will be busy.

“They have one of the best quarterbacks in the area,” noted Coach Lloyd. “We can’t afford to look past them. He (Justin Rocquemore) has had some big games and we’re going to have to play well and get after him. We have to keep our momentum going.”

Lady Mountaineer volleyball closing in on another Big South 3A championship

Kings Mountain High’s women’s volleyball team is closing in on another Big South 3A Conference championship after a pair of impressive victories last week over Forestview and North Gaston.

The Lady Mountaineers were at Belmont South Point last night where a victory would clinch at least a tie for the championship. Their final two regular season games are against Stuart Cramer Thursday and Crest Tuesday at KM’s Donald L. Parker Gymnasium. Heading into the final week of the regular season

Crest is the only team that could overtake the Mountaineers and the Lady Chargers would have to win all of their remaining games and the Lady Mountaineers would have to lose two of their final three.

Kings Mountain will enter the NCHSAA state playoffs on October 22, and barring any changes in the conference race that would be at Donald L. Parker Gymnasium. The KM ladies would have to win four games to make it to the Western Regional final on November 1 and a win there would send them

to the state championship on November 5.

In last week’s action, Coach Heather Pasour’s ladies swept Forestview 2516, 25-14, 25-12 and North Gaston 25-9, 25-9, 25-7.

Against Forestview, Meile Songaila had her usual all-around fine game with 22 kills, four service points, seven digs, nine serve receptions and a block.

Myracle Davis was her usual strong self along the net with 16 kills and a block.

Paige Bagwell had another all-around good game

with 10 service points, three digs, a block, seven kills and 17 assists.

Camden Pasour provided 23 assists, three digs, a block and two kills and Caroline Barber had 11 digs, 17 serve receptions and six service points.

The Kings Mountain JVs opened the action with a 25-23, 25-19 sweep as Abigail Hedgepath recorded nine digs, eight service points, 20 assists and four kills.

Brooke Hamrick had four service points, three digs and six kills; Megan Harrison two service

points, four digs and eight kills; and Ava Tipton four service points and 17 digs.

Against North Gaston, Songaila had six service points, eight serve receptions, 10 kills and seven digs.

Pasour had nine service points, 16 assists, three

kills, a block, four digs and a serve reception.

Bagwell had seven serve receptions, 10 assists, eight kills, two blocks and five digs.

KM JVs edge Raiders, host Cramer Thursday

Kings Mountain High’s junior varsity football team ran its record to 6-0 Thursday in Belmont with a 21-14 victory over South Point.

Kings Mountain’s defense came up big on the opening drive as Tristan Pressley’s fourth down tackle stopped a South Point drive. Josiah Hill then took KM’s opening play for a 75-yard touchdown run.

Vance Johnson’s PAT gave the Mountaineers a 7-0- lead midway of the first period.

South Point was able to tie the game at 7-all before KM’s defense forced a three and out. Taking over at the 31 yard line, quarterback TJ Armstrong connected with William Vaughn for a 14-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 11 seconds left in the half. Johnson added the PAT for a 14-7 lead.

After a stalled first drive, Johnson’s 43 yard punt pinned the Raiders inside their 20 yard line. Four plays later South Point tied the game at 14 all.

On the ensuing kickoff, KM’s Tyler Furman returned the ball to the South Point 23

yard line. On the next play Hill took the handoff and went the distance for a touchdown. Johnson’s third PAT made it 21-14.

KM’s defense was able to get SP’s offense off the field as Izaiah Jones’ tackle on third down forced South to punt to KM’s 12 yard line with 9:49 remaining. Mountaineer coach Diron Bell rallied his troops on a 14-play, 9:49 drive to SP’s 30 yard

line as KM held on for the victory.

The Mountaineers were led on defense by Jamel Lee and Jayden Watkins. Josiah Hill led the rushing attack with 189 yards.

The Mountaineers improved to 4-0 in the conference and 6-0 overall. They will host Stuart Cramer Thursday at 7 p.m. at John Gamble Stadium.

Mountaineer quarterback Lamont Littlejohn was on target all night in Friday’s big victory over South Point at John Gamble Stadium. Kings Mountain High’s football team wasn’t the only winner in Friday’s Big South 3A Conference showdown with the South Point Red Raiders at John Gamble Stadium. When the two long-time rivals were having their halftime rest and going over plans for the final two quarters the Kings Mountain High School and Kings Mountain Middle School bands were on the field giving a winning performance for the overflow crowd that filled up both stands.

And, you can tell by his hand in the air that the Mountaineer fans appreciate him as well as they gave him a rousing standing ovation. Teddy Jeffries goes around the South Point defense for a good gain in Friday’s Big South battle at Gamble Stadium. The Mountaineers won 31-20 to take sole possession of first place in the conference.

zero percent of non-federal dollars have been used to finance this program.

Over those five years, the Gaston College TRiO-Educational Opportunity Center aims to help expand educational opportunities for adults in Gaston and Lincoln counties.

The funds from the grant will place professional support staff in the community to provide counseling and information on college admissions and financial aid to qualified adults with a desire to pursue education beyond high school. The Center’s overall goal is to increase the number of adults in the surrounding area enrolling in colleges and universities.

All services are provided free of charge to participants who meet the eligibility requirements. Among those requirements are U.S. citizenship or permanent residency in Gaston or Lincoln County, being at least 19 years old, and not having previously earned a college degree. Priority is given to individuals who

are low-income or who have parents who do not have a college degree. Veterans, military family members, and unaccompanied, homeless, or foster-care youth are strongly encouraged to apply. Services include assistance completing applications for college admissions, testing and financial aid for 2- and 4-year colleges, guidance and referrals to GED and Adult High School programs, career counseling, college pre-admission counseling, specialized assistance for veterans, assistance with scholarship applications, and education and counseling designed to improve financial and economic literacy for participants.

“The caring and supportive TRiO-EOC staff at Gaston College are committed to turning your educational dreams into reality by helping remove barriers that often keep people from taking the next step in their educational journey,” said Dr. Jennifer Nichols, Vice President for Educational Partnerships. “Let us help you take that next step.”

Nominations for Tucker Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength Scholarship Due by Oct. 31

Non-Family Mentors

Invited to Recommend High School Seniors for Depth of Character, Faith, and Service

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—The deadline to nominate a high school senior for Gardner-Webb University’s most prestigious award—the Tucker Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength Scholarship—is Oct. 31. Established by the Tucker family, long-time supporters of the University, this eight-semester full-tuition/ room and board scholarship, is awarded annually to one high school student who best exemplifies the attributes highlighted in Mark 12:30-31: “Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength; and love your neighbor as yourself.”

Before they can receive an invitation to apply, students must be nominated by a non-family mentor, such as a minister, teacher, coach or spiritual mentor. A candidate should be a current high school senior who is a

first-year applicant at Gardner-Webb University for a bachelor’s program. Nominations should describe the applicant’s depth of character, faith, and service-driven life.

In a recent podcast with Gardner-Webb President William Downs, the first three Tucker Scholars each said they were humbled at being chosen for the honor. Nominated for the various ways they had served in their communities, they continue to serve in different ways on the GWU Campus. Leah Carpenter, the first Tucker Scholar, was nominated by her youth pastor, who said that Carpenter helped everyone in the church and community, and “her love and her light just radiates.” A native of Stanley, N.C., Carpenter demonstrates kindness and compassion as she works in her clinical assignments for nursing.

Kyndal Jackson, of Gaffney, S.C., the second recipient of the Tucker Scholarship, was also nominated for participating in several community service clubs and projects at school and in the community. Her

school counselor described her as a person who is passionate about her walk and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. She enjoys participating in mission trips and ministry opportunities.

The newest Tucker Scholar, Kylee Morris, of Morehead City, N.C., was one of 160 students nominated last year. Her coach described how Morris gave up her position on the varsity basketball squad, to play with the JV team, because the younger team

didn’t have enough players. Since arriving on campus, Morris has made many friends as a member of the Gardner-Webb Marching Bulldogs.

After a student is nominated, they receive an invitation to apply. The Tucker Scholarship application and essay deadline is Nov. 7. A student’s admission counselor will help them through the process. After Nov. 7, the University will review all complete applications and choose the top candidates to be invited to

attend an interview. Gardner-Webb hosts interviews in late November. These interviews will help GWU determine the candidate that best exemplifies a Tucker Scholar.

• Individual parts of the scholarship packet include:

• Due by Oct. 31:

• Nomination by non-family mentor.

• Due by Nov. 7:

• Application for the Tucker Scholarship: Each nominated student will be emailed information about the application for the


• Accepted undergraduate application to Gardner-Webb: Apply for admission here.

• Essay: Each nominated student will be emailed information about the essay requirements.

• References: Minimum of two to include both academic and character mentors.

For more information about the Tucker Scholarship, email Ben Flournoy, Senior Admissions Counselor.

Dear Savvy Senior,

Do you know of any car gadgets that can help older drivers? I drive a 12-year-old car and have arthritis in my neck, back and knees which limits my mobility making it more difficult to get in and out of the car and look over my shoulder to backup. Almost 80

Dear Almost,

To help keep older drivers safe and extend their driving years, there are a number of inexpensive products you can purchase that can easily be added to your vehicle to help with many different needs. Here are some popular auto aids to consider.

Entry and Exit Aids

For mobility challenged seniors who have a difficult time entering and exiting a vehicle – especially cars that are low to the ground or high vehicles such as SUV’s or pickup truck’s – there are a variety of support handles and special seat cushions that can help.

Some examples include the Stander ( “HandyBar” ($40), which is a portable support grab bar that inserts into the U-shaped striker plate on the

NC ALE named agency of the year

North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) Division was awarded the Agency of the Year by the National Liquor Law Enforcement Association (NLLEA) at their Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on September 26.

Over 35 local, state, federal and campus law enforcement agencies were represented at the Conference, along with exhibitors

and public health partners. ALE was one of a few agencies who was recognized for the hard work and dedication to the field of alcohol law enforcement.

The NLLEA Alcohol Law Enforcement Agency of the Year Award is given to an agency that has demonstrated agency effectiveness through the implementation of innovative programs, community and media recognition, and model training programs, practices, and strategies.

ALE demonstrated this

through a myriad of special investigations, proactive enforcement, and education in the communities they serve.

ALE also developed and implemented several trainings for ALE and licensed establishments to increase knowledge and foster relationships for safer communities.

“Every day, our special agents and support staff work diligently to uphold the highest standards of professionalism, competency and integrity within law enforcement and the community,” said Bryan House,

Director of ALE. “Our team is well-deserving of this recognition, and I am extremely proud to have North Carolina receive this notable distinction for a second year in a row.”

ALE’s 108 specially trained agents have the authority to arrest and take investigatory action throughout North Carolina. Their primary responsibility is the enforcement of Alcoholic Beverage Control, tobacco, state lottery and gambling laws.

Driving Easier and Safer

doorframe, and the “CarCaddie” ($20), a nylon support handle that buckles around the top of the door window frame. Stander also has an “Auto Swivel Seat Cushion” ($40), that rotates 360 degrees to help drivers and passengers pivot their body into and out of their vehicle.

Rear Vision Improvements

To help those with neck and back range of motion problems, which makes looking over the shoulder to back-up or merge into traffic difficult, there are special mirrors you can add as well as back-up cameras.

To widen rear visibility and eliminate blind spots, Verivue Mirrors ( offers the popular “Universal 12-Inch Panoramic Rearview Mirror” ($13) that clips on to existing rearview mirrors, along with a variety of “Blind Spot Mirrors” ($5 for two), which are small convex mirrors that stick to the corner of the sideview mirrors.

Another helpful device is the “Auto-vox CS-2 Wireless Backup Camera Kit” ($120, This comes with a night vision camera that attaches to the rear license plate, and a small monitor that mounts to the dash or windshield.

When the vehicle is in reverse, it sends live images wirelessly to the monitor so you can see what’s behind you.

Seat Belt Extenders

For plus-sized people or those with mobility problems, there are seat belt extension products that can make buckling up a little easier. For example, Seat Belt Extender Pros ( offers vehicle-specific “Seat Belt Extenders” ($13 to $26) that fit into the seat belt buckle receiver to add a few inches of length, making them easier to fasten. They also sell a “Seat Belt Grabber Handle” ($8), which is a rubber extension handle that attaches to the seat belt strap to make it easier to reach.

Gripping Devices

If you have hand arthritis that makes gripping difficult or painful, consider the “SEG Direct Steering Wheel Cover” ($17) that fits over the steering wheel to make it larger, softer and easier to grip. And for help twisting open tight gas caps, the “Gas Cap & Oil Cap Opener by Gascapoff” ($17) is a long-handled tool that works like a wrench to loosen and tighten gas caps.

Many of these products can be found in your local auto supply stores or online at the manufacturer’s website or at Amazon. com. Just type the product name in the search bar to find them.

Professional Help If you need more assistance, consider contacting a driver rehabilitation specialist who are trained to evaluate elderly drivers and provide safety and driving equipment suggestions.

In addition to the types of aids mentioned in this column, there’s also a range of adaptive driving equipment that can be professionally installed on a vehicle – like swing-out swivel seats, pedal extenders, hand controls and more – to help people with various disabilities. To locate a driver rehabilitation specialist in your area, visit or
