City unveils portrait of Mayor J.C. Patrick

On October 25, just before the city council meeting, City of Kings Mountain Mayor Scott Neisler remembered an early mayor who played key roles in the modernization of Kings Mountain: Dr. John Christopher Blair Patrick (J.C. Patrick) who served as mayor for the city from 1907 – 1909.

Mayor Neisler said that Rev. Rob Patrick of Boyce Memorial ARP Church once came to give the invocation during city council and mentioned that he had a photo of J. C. Patrick. Rob is the grandnephew of J.C. Patrick and offered to share a photo of his family member with the city to create a portrait for the Mayor’s Wall in city hall.

To learn more about Patrick, Mayor Neisler searched City of Kings Mountain Minute Books from 1908. From those official records, he learned that under Mayor Patrick’s term, the city of Kings Mountain made to significant strides in public health and public education.

A significant action occurred when the city went to the bond market and borrowed $50,000 to start a city water system. “Until that

time, the city had no public water. The amount borrowed would equate to $1.6 million dollars today,” he said.

“At that time, the city also borrowed $15,000 in bonds to start a graded school. That would equate to $316,000 today. The city had no public school until 1908 and we have Mayor J.C. Patrick to thank for that,” he said.

Rev. Patrick then shared a little early history of the Patrick family. “John Christopher Blair Patrick was the third generation of my family born in America after coming here from Ireland. I have been told he was also the first dentist in Kings Mountain. He passed away in 1912. He and his wife had no children. He married Nellie Brown of Kings Mountain, and she remained a widow for the rest of her life,” he shared with those in attendance as he unveiled the oil painting by Timmy Hord.

According to DigitalKM. org?,

Dr. J.C. Patrick was born in York County, SC, and was a well-known dentist who served as a council member for the city four years. He acted as mayor from December 1, 1907 – November 30, 1909. He suffered from facial cancer four years which eventually led to his being confined at home for a year before his death. He and his wife Nellie were married for eight years. He died at the age of 42.

Using the city’s cemetery information online, one can see that Nellie was 35 when

her husband died. She lived until December 12, 1959, and died at the age of 82. Both are buried in Mountain Rest Cemetery.

Mayor Neisler pointed out that what Patrick did then is no different than what any mayor and city councilperson has done since the town’s inception. “They have all worked to do what is the best for Kings Mountain,” he said.

The city is missing two more images from the Mayor’s Wall who have served Kings Mountain since 1874: Dr. F.M. (Frank) Garrett and L.T. Mann. Mayor Neisler asks if you are a relative of either mayor or have a photo the city can use to create a portrait, that you call city hall. 704-734-0444. Your photograph will be returned to you once the portrait is completed.

Pieces of Kings Mountain History


Anyone who has been around these parts since the 60s knows of Martin Harmon’s tenure as the newspaper man for the Kings Mountain Herald. Martin’s style of writing could be formal when necessary, but he was beloved for his take on life through his weekly column called Martin’s Medicine.

Reading the article presented today, it becomes evident by the end why Martin wrote this column about Halloween, as it would seem the event reminds him of his father and was more a tribute to his father’s memories during a simpler time than the ramblings of a sentimental old newspaper man. It was a tribute to a father from his son.

In the October 25 edition of the Herald, Martin highlighted the history of Halloween to modern times and shared how Kings Mountain incorporated earlier interpretation into their annual celebration.

Here is the entirety of his column in which he advises the reader, “Martin’s Medicine, by Martin Harmon, Ingredients: bits

of news, wisdom, humor, and comments. Directions: take weekly, if possible, but avoid overdosage.”

Martin’s Medicine

It’s goblin time again . . . . and the goblins ‘ll getcha if you don’t watch out. . . .

The Halloween (Webster drops the apostrophe) festival is quite an old one, according to report of the encyclopedia, dating to the time of the Druids, and at least 2000 or more years old. The Druids were members of a religious order in ancient Gaul, Britain, and Ireland. They were prophets of a sort and natural philosophers, knowing the courses of the stars, the size of the earth, and the properties of certain plants. They were also judges in settling disputes and served as teachers to the Gaulish nobles. In Irish and Welsh legends, the Druids appear as conjurers, or witch doctors.


After the Roman conquest oi Gaul and Britain, the October 31 date became traditional for the celebration and was known as “All Hallow Even,” meaning holy eve of All Saints Day. Previously it had been an ancient Roman festival, honoring Pomona, mythological goddess of fruits and gardens.

Thus, we have in Cleveland County the Pomona Grange, a chapter of the North Carolina Grange, one of the major farm organizations. m-m

Today’s celebrations show elements of many of the past festivals. It is a harvest season celebration; witches theoretically take to their broomsticks and little elves play pranks. People play conjurers, claiming to be prophets and endeavor to predict the future. m-m

In a way, the one-night Halloween festival compares to Mardi Gras, with a funand-frolic season preceding a period devoted to religious concentration.


The format of the celebration has changed here, though, as from olden times, elements of it remain. Once upon a time, in Kings Mountain, the business district was the gathering place for the vast majority of the town’s school children, dressed in costumes of various kinds and all masked, either in hideous funny faces or home - contrived means of traveling incognito. m-m

Some of the revelers played rough, loaded socks

Looking Back

ARCHITECTS DRAWING OF ST. MATTHEWS LUTHERAN CHURCH—Shown is Architect J. Frederick Lawson’s sketch of the new St. Matthew’s Lutheran church which replaced the old structure at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and Ridge Street in the 1950s. The prior structure was a community landmark for almost three-quarters of a century. Final service was held in the old building on Sunday morning (Oct. 26, 1952), and work on razing of the old building was immediately underway. C. T. Bennett Construction Company was awarded contract to build the new structure. Total cost of the new plant was expected to exceed S200.000.

or bags serving as blackjacks to wallop someone with. Why this was fun, I find hard to see, but some thought it was, though not the recipients. But the glamour of the party was still there, and a youngster was mortified not to be able to participate, whipping bag or not.


Today, more formal celebrations are the order of the day in this area. The Parent - Teacher association for the past several years have staged Halloween festivals at the respective schools, in an arrangement beneficial to all. The youngsters have a big evening’s entertainment, at little expense, contrive

less mayhem. and still have time to call on the neighbors with the inevitable “trick or treat” alternative. The P-TA’s use the profits for school projects.


Mr. Avory Harmon for a half century has had a ritual of coming uptown on Halloween night and says he will repeat it again this year. But he says there’s no comparison to the old days, before television aerials went skyward from most homes and radio was in its relative infancy.


Halloween is a colorful celebration and retains the spectra of the harvest season, with golds, blacks, reds,

and the other many colors which nature provides during this most beautiful season.


Though it may be to little avail, parents would do well to try to instill into their youngster’s minds that pranks are not fun when the pranks damage property or person. On the other hand, maybe it would be safer not to remind them.


My father’s birthday is on Halloween. He always recalls he arrived on terra firma with the spooks and goblins.

Halloween – will the REAL trick or treat be November 8?

Halloween is coming but the real trick or treat may be Nov. 8, the mid-term election. November 8 may feel more like Halloween this year than the traditional October date.

Who knows what will happen. Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania all have Senate races that could tilt the balance of Congressional power depending on who is elected. All three races are going down to the wire. In probably each state it will most likely be the next day before a winner is determined – if not longer.

The 2022 midterm election is shaping up to be one for the history books.

According to a new analysis from pollster Echelon Insights, an estimated 125.6 million Americans are expected to turn out in November’s midterm contests. Such a figure would shatter the record set in 2018’s midterms, which saw 53.4 percent of the eligible voting-age population cast their ballots, according to the Census

Bureau. Already voters are starting to come out in full force: As of Tuesday, Oct. 18, at least 2.8 million people already cast their ballots in the midterms, according to the United States Elections Project. That includes the more than 131,000 Georgia voters who cast their ballots early on the first day of early voting on Monday, Oct. 17, handily beating the previous firstday record for a midterm of 72,000, per state election official Gabriel Sterling.(Spectrum News NY) Issues are driving Americans to the polls. found the following to be priority concerns of registered Americans. The numbers with each issue represent a percent of primary concern of those surveyed Economy – 79, Healthcare – 68, Supreme court appointments – 64, The coronavirus outbreak – 62, Violent crime – 59, Foreign policy – 57, Gun policy – 55, Race and ethnic inequality – 52, Immigration – 52, Economic inequality – 49, Climate change – 42, and Abortion – 40. Of course, you could conduct a poll in your community and the level of interest on

any of these issues would probably be in a slightly different order. In almost every scenario the economy and inflation are paramount with voters.

Inflation has knocked on every American’s door and has not been satisfied by a treat. Inflation at the rate of 8.2 percent, has been one hungry monster that has devoured American paychecks and pushed seniors back into the workforce. Available part-time jobs are now being sought by seniors who need the money.

A recent poll shows a dead heat between Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Republican candidate Adam Laxalt in the Nevada Senate race.

In In Pennsylvania, it’s Lt. Governor John Fetterman and R. Mehmet Oz who are now very close. In Georgia the Senate race has Raphael Warnock leading Herschel Walker but the Governor race between Governor Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams remains close according to a Quinnipiac University Georgia poll.

Save some of your leftover Halloween candy for Nov. 8. Have a bowl of popcorn for a real evening of trick or treat.

emerged in our schools this year and we want to make parents aware of the problem. On seven occasions in the 2022 school year, teenaged children have made threats of violence against their school or people at their school. These threats have been delivered both verbally, electronically, and in written form. Often these threats catch traction on social media and cause extreme fear and uncertainty for students, school staff, and parents.”

“The Sheriff’s Office aggressively investigates every reported threat of violence in or at a school. During many of these investigations we have discovered that the offender believes that they are being funny or making a joke,” the post continued.

“We want to make it clear that we do not consider threats of any kind to be funny or a joke. Every case will be investigated, and appropriate criminal charges will be made, in addition to any schoolbased punishment the child

RSV: When it’s more than just a bad cold

Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection (RSV) can cause serious disease that results in thousands of hospitalizations each year in the United States. This virus can impact anyone at any age, but infants and the elderly are at greatest risk.

It is important to understand that RSV is a virus that most every child has had at some point in their lives before the age of two. For most, the symptoms clear up in a week or two, but for others - particularly for infants under six months of age - the virus can pose a serious threat.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, families took steps to protect their families from the coronavirus. Parents did such a good job using masks, washing hands, and practicing social distancing that RSV was rarely seen.

Now that families and children are vaccinated and boosted, many don’t take the same precautions. As a result, RSV is on the rise. Young children who would have likely already had the infection are now being exposed. And the numbers being seen at doctor’s offices and hospitals are higher.


“We would like to ask parents of teen-aged children to have a serious talk with their kids and help them to understand that threats of violence are

According to Hospitalist Dr. Sara Horstmann of Atrium Health, “What is making things appear worse than usual is twofold. One is that we haven’t seen these viruses circulating for the last two years. They’ve been there, but not to the same degree due to COVID precautions.”

Dr. Horstmann continued, “Now that people have relaxed all those precautions, what we are seeing is kids exposed sometimes for the first time in their life to these viruses that they would have been exposed to all along. So, their first exposure tends to be more severe. We are seeing that severity of illness not just in children less than one (year), and we are seeing it in children two years and on up.”

“It is a normal virus that is causing a normal disease process. We are just seeing a lot of it because of the other factors.” she added.

“This isn’t just in Cleveland County. This is a national phenomenon we are going through right now. Our concern from a hospital perspective is that when everybody gets sick all at once it really strains the system. So, you may see you cannot get into your primary

never a joking matter. We would further ask that they encourage their children to come forward with information when they witness or hear of any threats of violence.”

care doctor because all the sick visits are full, urgent care is backed up and full, and you hear about not being able to get into ICU beds, and that is because everyone is getting sick all at once. It not because people are getting more sick, it is just because more people are getting sick all at once,” Dr. Horstmann concluded.

This is the time of year when viruses like the flu start spreading. And with Thanksgiving and Christmas and family gatherings soon to come, Dr. Horstmann projects that the RSV numbers in Cleveland County, the state, and the nation will continue to rise through the early 2023.

Luckily, there are steps families can take to protect their loved ones from RSV. Centers for Disease Control recommend taking the following steps to protect your family from this virus:

• Avoid close contact with sick people.

• Wash your hands often.

• Cover your coughs & sneezes.

• Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.

• Stay home when you’re sick.

“Together we can make our community and our schools a safer place to live and learn.”

CCSO responds to student threats of violence in schools

“Our Father which art in Heaven…”

These are the opening words in the model prayer Jesus gave to His disciples. In the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament, we read where the disciples came to Jesus after Jesus had finished praying and asked Him to teach them to pray as John the Baptist had taught his disciples to pray.

Their request was twofold:

First, they wanted to pray and talk to God as Jesus did. Secondly, they desired a burden to pray. They saw the priority prayer had in the Jesus’ life and they desired to be gripped by the same pas-

sion for communion with God. Jesus, in response, taught them the key principles to pray and the first one is to acknowledge God as “ our Father.” This is the basis upon which we may approach God in our prayers. Jesus was teaching them to understand God in a different way than most people had previously understood God. Most ancient religions could not conceive of God as a “Father.”

Up to this point, not even the Jewish people understood this

concept of God as their Father. In the Old Testament there was various Hebrew names for God. For example, if they needed healing they would call upon God as Jehovah-rapha, “the Lord our Healer.” If they needed peace they would call upon Jehovah-Shalom, “the Lord of our peace.” If they needed leadership they would call upon Jehovah-Rohi, “the Lord is my Shepherd.” These are just a few examples of the names they used for God.

When Jesus instructed His disciples in prayer, He told them to just call on the “Father.” How wonderful! We don’t have to try to figure out which name of God I need to use…I can just call Him “Father.”

He is not just “my” Father or “your” Father, He is “our” Father. This word “our” establishes a solidarity with our fellow believers. This word our” tells us that we have a connection not only to God but to others who are the redeemed in Christ. This prayer unites all Christians expressing a profound unity with the fellowship of all believers in Christ. This word “our” helps us to realize that we are not alone. All over the world believers call upon “our Father” every day. We are one with the community of believers in Christ.

Now that God is “our Father,” He carries us in His heart and has our best interests at heart. God not only births us into His family but also

has the resources and ability to “Father” us. He has promised to sustain us, to supply our needs, and to care for us until we arrive home in glory.

What a blessing it is to know that when we call upon Him, He hears us because He loves us and cares about everything we face in this life.

The opening of this model prayers ends with the words, “… which art in heaven. ” Our Father occupies the throne of glory and from His throne He sees and knows everything there is to know about us, and that He will hear and answer from His lofty throne. Plus, as believers we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit of God and to pray in the name of Jesus Who sits at the right hand of God making intercession for us.

In these trying times, it’s reassuring to know that God the Father, God the Son, and

God the Holy Spirit abides with us and that because God is “our Father” we have a responsibility to pray for one another. One of the purest ways to do so is to carry one another’s burdens to the throne of grace in prayer.

I close we a hymn that communicates this so well:

“I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God…I’ve been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His blood! Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod; for I’m a part of the family of God.”

If you are not a part of His family today, I invite you to come into God’s family by turning to faith and trust in Jesus as your Savior and Lord.

Mountaineers defeat Chargers 35-20 to finish regular season 10-0 for the first time since 1964

Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers scored on their first three possessions to take a 21-0 lead and went on to defeat the Crest Chargers 35-20 Friday night at Crest and wrap up the Big South Conference championship and their first 10-0 regular season since 1964.

A victory by the Chargers would have created a three-way tie for first place between the Mountaineers, Chargers and South Point but the KM victory sent Crest to a third place finish with a 5-2 conference record and 7-3 overall mark while South Point claimed sole possession of second place with a 6-1 mark in the league and 9-1 overall.

“We got off to a great start,” said Mountaineer head coach Greg Lloyd, a former player and assistant coach at Crest. “We were minus a player or two but we played very well. We had a fantastic first half in all three phases of the game. We did a good job running the ball and passing. We were very balanced.”

The Mountaineers drove the opening kickoff 60 yards in 12 plays to score on a two-yard run by Teddy Jeffries, who would go on to finish with 138 yards on 16 carries before being injured late in the fourth quarter.

The Chargers stopped Caleb Holland for no gain on the game’s first play from scrimmage, and the Mountaineers drew a five-yard illegal procedure penalty before senior quarterback Lamont Littlejohn passed 19 yards to Bryson Brown and 10 to Ja’Qualyn Sanders to put the Mountaineers on the Crest 37. Passes of

14 yards to Jeffries and 16 to Sanders got them to the four and carries of two yards each from AJ Richardson and Jeffries got them into the end zone. Jaden Ellis’s PAT made it 7-0.

On the Chargers’ first possession from scrimmage, Sanders intercepted a pass to put the Mountaineers in business at the Chargers’ 26. After a holding penalty and a one-yard loss, Littlejohn hit Bryson Brown for a 19 yard reception to get the offense rolling again. Richardson’s one yard burst at the 4:28 mark and Ellis’s PAT made it 14-0.

Jason Melton covered Ellis’s pooch kickoff at the Crest 34. After two carries for 18 yards by Jeffries put KM on the Charges’ 19, Holland took it to the house and Ellis’s PAT with still 3:19 left in the first period put the Mountaineers up 21-0. Holland would finish with 74 yards on 13 carries as he and Jeffries each gained more yards rushing than the entire Crest running corps that had 48 yards on 20 carries.

“I thought Lamont, Bryson Brown and Zavion Smith did a really good job,” Lloyd said. “Our offensive line was really aggressive. The defensive backs made some really big plays.”

The Crest defense blocked a punt to give the Chargers possession at the KM 17 with 11:38 left in the second quarter and the hosts got on the board on a 14yard reception by DeShaun Curry. The PAT failed and KM led 21-6.

The Mountaineer defense came up big forcing the Chargers to punt from


St. Stephens here Friday for first playoff game

Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers are ranked as the #1 team in the Western 3A playoff bracket and will play all of their Western playoff games at home, beginning Friday night when the #32 St. Stephens Indians come to town.

Although they come here with a 4-6 overall record, they have played some very good Western NC teams and turned in a big victory over Fred T. Foard in their season finale last week to nail down a playoff spot

Friday and they played very well against Statesville,” Lloyd noted. Kings Mountain and Statesville have had some classic post-season battles over the years.

“They’re very competitive,” Lloyd continued. “They have a balanced offense (averaging 139 yards passing and 168 rushing per game). Their quarterback (Peyton Young, who is 94 of 184 passing for 1,373 yards) is a good one. They are very similar to Franklin last year. We can’t afford to look past

Mountaineer fans will recall that last year the Mountaineers had to drive 99 yards in the final two minutes to defeat a Franklin team that had a similar record to St. Stephens.

The Indians have a good running game led by Bryan Gaither who has 1,145 yards rushing and last week burned the Fred T. Foard defense for 288 yards on 19 carries to help his team grab the playoff spot.

completed the Mountaineer scoring but Crest caused some anxious moments with two touch-

senior Dayton Anderson (33 catches for 427 yards) and Brycen Gaither (sophomore running back) who has caught 17 passes for 253 yards.

The Mountaineers have had some nagging injuries, but Lloyd said everyone will be ready to go Friday.

“Winning all 10 regular season games is really a great compliment for the players,” he said. “They’re really good players to coach. We want to take this momentum into the playoffs, get better every day and make a deep run.”

The Mountaineers were on the Crest 13 yard line when the Chargers recovered a high snap all the way back to the Crest 31. That gave the hosts some momentum

JVs fall to Chargers 38-14 to finish with 9-1 record

Crest jumped on top 8-0 with just 19 seconds left in the first quarter and rolled to a 38-14 win over the Kings Mountain JVs in their final game Thursday night at Gamble Stadium.

It was the only loss of the year and second in three seasons for Coach Diron Bell’s Mountaineers, who finished with a 9-1 record.

Crest built a 14-0 lead before Kings Mountain finally dented the scoreboard with 33 seconds left in the half on a 28-yard fumble recovery and return by Izaiah Jones.

But the Chargers came out of the gate in the third quarter to score on a 77yard, four-play drive with

a 65-yard catch and run by Michael Edwards, followed by a two-point conversion by Anthony Uribe for a 22-6 lead.

The visitors went up 30-6 with 4:19 left in the half on a 67-yard catch and run by Nehemiah Parker. Kings Mountain answered quickly with a 60-yard catch and run by Josiah Hill and a two-point conversion pass to William Vaughn to make it 30-14.

Crest closed out the scoring with 1:49 remaining on a 15-yard keeper around left end by quarterback Mark Waddell and a two-point conversion run by Hampton Boykins.

back in the game. We had more to do with them coming back than they did. Our two blunders kept their drives going. We just have to stay away from mistakes. We have to use that as a lesson learned and aim for 100 percent concentration.”

A pass interception and return to the KM 37 put the Chargers in scoring po-

sition again but this time Curtis Simpson came up with a big sack to force a Crest punt.

With KM backed up to its own eight yard line facing third and 13, the Mountaineers pulled off several big plays to clinch the win. Littlejohn threw a quick pass to Sanders who rambled 27 yards for a first down at the 35 with 4:44

remaining. The Mountaineers moved steadily down the field and Jeffries’ 24yard run gave them a first down at the Crest 11 from which point Littlejohn took a knee twice to end the game.

Kings Mountain played exceptionally well in all areas of the game. The Chargers’ TD plays accounted for most of their

yardage as the KM defense and special teams played lights out. Crest had only 29 yards on seven kick returns and zero yards on three punt returns. The Chargers’ biggest weapons were Huskey who hit on 10 of 20 passes for 161 yards and all three of their TDs and Addison who caught five passes for 89 yards.

Governor Roy Cooper visited and toured State Line Children’s World in Scotland County to highlight the North Carolina Child Care Stabilization Grants the center received to support and retain its workforce, on Tuesday, October 18. Cleveland County received $7,381,366 in grant funds. Gaston County received $10,890,257.

“High-quality early learning gets children the strong start they need while allowing parents to stay in or get back into the workforce,” Governor Cooper said. “These funds will help raise pre-school teacher pay so we can keep them in the profession to continue educating, nurturing and supporting our children.”

“High-quality early learning starts with a welltrained and educated workforce,” said Ariel Ford, Director of the Division of Child Development and Early Education at the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. “Our early childhood programs and teachers have gone the extra mile to stay working and keep child care open through the pandemic so that children were learning and parents were working – with the help of a historic federal investment that will soon be ending. With the ongo-

of Child Care


in NC

ing tight labor market, now is the time to work together to help our early childhood teachers stay in the field they love and trained for and attract more great teachers to the field.”

“This grant helped us fill some of the voids and help our teachers, teacher assistants, and our support staff through the hardships and sacrifices they have endured since March 2020. Because the stabilization grant allowed us to offer bonuses, paid wellness days, and benefits and resources such as mental wellness training to our incredible teachers and teacher assistants, we were able to retain and recruit caring, committed professionals,” Davina DeBerry, assistant director of State Line Children’s World said. “The stabilization grant also assisted with some of the hardships that our parents and guardians were facing, because we were able to offer after-school care at minimum to no cost to our parents. The State of North Carolina has invested in us, and we have invested in students and our community.”

Since the launch of the Child Care Stabilization Grant program, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) has distributed more than $655 million to over 4,200 child

care centers and family child care homes. 90% of total eligible child care programs have received grants in 99 counties. In September, NCDHHS announced it is extending the grant program that is supporting early care and learning teacher pay through December 2023.

The NCDHHS Division of Child Development and Early Education will use about $150 million in discretionary ARPA funding allocated for workforce initiatives to continue one component of the grants – compensation supports, which have helped to boost teacher pay and benefits.

Over the course of the pandemic, a historic $1.9 billion in one-time federal dollars has been invested in NC’s child care system to stabilize it, keeping child care programs across the state open and teachers working.

This funding to support child care programs will be fully expended in October 2023.

State Line Children’s World is a 5-star child care center in Laurinburg. Established in 1979, the center provides care for children starting at age 3 and includes preschool and Pre-K classes as well as an after-school program for school-age children.

What to do if your child goes missing

Not being able to locate a child puts fear in the hearts of all parents and grandparents. Taking steps in advance can save precious time, should you ever face this type of emergency, according to NC Center for Missing Persons.

If a child is missing, family and friends should immediately notify local law enforcement. If a child is abducted, time is valuable.

File a police or sheriff’s report. Include information on where the child was last known to be, as well as names of the individual’s family and friends.

Provide officers with a recent photo as soon as possible. Law enforcement can immediately enter child abduction cases into the FBI’s National Crime Information Center. The center allows officers nationwide to share information about endangered children, increasing the chance that the child will be found.

• Request that law enforcement put out a Be On the Look Out (BOLO) Bulletin.

• Ask for an organized search with the use of tracking dogs if possible.

• Limit access to your home until law enforcement investigators arrive and have collected evidence. Do not touch or remove anything from your child’s room or your home. There may be clues to the whereabouts of your child.

• Give the investigator all facts and circumstances related to disappearance including what efforts have already been made.

• Write a detailed description of clothing worn by the child and any personal items your child had at the time of his or her disappearance. Note any birthmarks, scars, tattoos, or mannerisms, and supply any photo that may show the marks. Give this information to the investigator.

• Make copies of recent photos for law enforcement, news media, the NC Center for Missing Persons, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and any volunteer groups aiding in the search.

• Designate one person to answer your telephone. Keep a pad of paper by the phone to jot down names, telephone numbers, date and time of calls, and the purpose of the call. You may want to get law enforcement to

put a tracer on your phone and get an answering machine that will tape calls. You may also want to add caller ID. If you do not have a cell phone, you may want to get one so that you can be reached at any time. For cases that are older than 30 days, help officers locate dental and medical records.

FBI Application

The FBI has an app so you can quickly email information to authorities with a few clicks. They advise you store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s right at hand if you need it. In the app, you can also show pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot.

For more information, visit The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for more tips on what to do if your child is missing.

NCDHHS announces first flu death of the season

NCDHHS is reporting the first flu-related death of the 2022-23 flu season. An adult in the western part of the state died due to complications of influenza during the third week of October.

While influenza cases and deaths were histori-

cally low during the 202021 and 2021-22 influenza seasons, the number of influenza deaths reported in North Carolina ranged from 186 to 391 during the five prior seasons.

Currently, North Carolina is seeing an increase in illnesses caused by re-

spiratory viruses other than COVID-19, including influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), that is greater than at any time since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020.

The CDC recommends flu vaccination

every year for everyone 6 months and older. Vaccination is the best way to prevent infection with the flu. Vaccination can also make illness milder for those who do get the flu. To find a flu vaccine near you, visit www.vaccines. gov/find-vaccines.

Dear Savvy Senior, How do I go about looking for an old former company 401(k) plan that I think I contributed money to many years ago, but forgot about until recently?

Retired in Rochester

Dear Retired, If you think you may have lost track of an old 401(k) retirement account, you aren’t alone. As Americans move from job to job, many leave scraps of their company sponsored 401(k) plans behind, believing they’ll deal with it later, but never do.

In fact, according to a recent study, Americans have left behind around $1.35 trillion in retirement accounts that are connected to previous employers. To help you look for an old 401(k), here are some suggestions along with some free resources that can help you search.

Call Your Former Employer The first way to look for an old 401(k) account is to contact your former employer’s human resources department. Ask them to check their plan records to see if you ever participated in their

401(k) plan, and if so, how much it’s worth. You’ll need to provide them your Social Security number and the dates you worked for them.

If you need help tracking down your former employer because it may have moved, changed owners or merged with another firm, help is available from the Labor Department (, 866-444-3272) and the Pension Rights Center and Pension Action Center (

If there was more than $5,000 in your 401(k) account when you left, there’s a good chance that your money is still in your workplace account.

Your former employer should be able to either get you the forms necessary to roll over your retirement money to a different 401(k) or to an IRA, or to give you contact information for any outside financial institution overseeing the plan on your employer’s behalf. By following the appropriate instructions, you’ll be able to move your retirement money where you want.

But if your old 401(k) account was un-

der $5,000, your former employer has the option of transferring the money to a default individual retirement account without your consent. Your cash may go into an interest-bearing, federally insured bank account or to your state’s unclaimed property fund.

If this is the case, and your old employer cannot tell you where your 401(k) funds were sent, you’ll need to track it down yourself.

Searching Tools

While there’s no federally run national database where you can look for all the retirement accounts that are associated with your name, a good place to start your search is with the Department of Labor’s abandoned plan database at And FreeErisa (FreeErisa., which maintains a rundown of employee benefit plan paperwork.

There’s also the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits at This site works like a “missed connections” service whereby companies register

with the site to help facilitate a reunion between ex-employees and their retirement money. But not every company is registered with this site.

To see if your 401(k) money was turned over to the state’s unclaimed property fund, use the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators website ( to search. Or you can do a multi-state search in 39 states at

Or, if you think you were covered under a traditional pension plan that was disbanded, call the U.S. Pension Guaranty Corp. at 800-326-5678, or use the trusteed plan search tool at search-trusteed-plans.
