Appalachian Gear Company awarded NC Building Reuse Grant

FIRE AT SASI’S POTTERY STUDIO – On Monday, November 1 at 7:30 p.m., the Pottery Studio at Kings Mountain Art Center went up in flames. Pottery wheels and a kiln, along with other contents in the room, are now covered in water and soot. The extent of the damage is not currently known, and the cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

Governor Roy Cooper announced 22 grant recipients through the North Carolina Rural Infrastructure Authority on Oct. 21. Appalachian Gear Company and the City of Kings Mountain were chosen as a grant recipient this year. This $50,000 grant will support the reuse of a 10,000-square-foot building, where Appalachian Gear Company, LLC, plans to expand its current manufacturing operations to a second facility. The company, a cut-and-sew operation specializing in alpaca fiber garments, plans to create 12 jobs, and invest $486,000 in this project. “I am delighted that Kings Mountain will be receiving one of the rural infrastructure authority grants from the state. The important and muchneeded grant will continue the positive trajectory that this region is enjoying,” said Senator Ted Alexander. Appalachian Gear Company announced its relocation to a new manufacturing facility in April 2021 and has seen such tremendous growth that the company is expanding to a second facility. This second facility will be located in downtown Kings Mountain, which will enable AGC to do its own garment and research and development in-house. “Textiles has always been the fabric of our society. It’s in our blood!" said Kings Mountain Mayor Scott Neisler. "So, it is gratifying to see that Appalachian Gear has found a niche in the ever chang-

ing textile climate. We welcome them to Kings Mountain and hope it will result in them being very successful.” Appalachian Gear Company's founders John Gage and Mike Hawkins aren't new to Kings Mountain. They designed, built, and ran a textile dyeing and finishing operation from 1991-2002, and are excited to come back home and grow their business. "Appalachian Gear Company is so excited to once again be a part of the Kings Mountain and Cleveland County Community, a community in which we have a long history. It is so important for city and county governments to support small manufacturing companies, especially in the current economic times. We are so appreciative that Kings Mountain, Cleveland County, and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina have such an accomplished and energetic team that was absolutely the spark plug for Appalachian Gear Company’s expansion," commented John Gage, Appalachian Gear Company. "The Building Reuse Grant is a cornerstone in our effort to not only bring Award-Winning Apparel Manufacturing back to the U.S., but also to become one of the only vertically integrated Outdoor Lifestyle Brands in the U.S.

that starts with a raw material, produces a fabric with our patent pending process, and then produces the finished garments and Outdoor Gear that we sell directly to consumers," he said. Appalachian Gear Company is an outdoor lifestyle company specializing in American-made performance apparel and gear. They combine 100 years in the textile industry and have won consecutive editor’s choice awards from Backpacker Magazine for their All-Paca Fleece Hoodie, made from 100% Alpaca Wool. “Although Kings Mountain-Cleveland County, NC just recently became home to Appalachian Gear Company, we are thrilled to hear that the company is already proceeding with an expansion of their local operations," said NC House Speaker Tim Moore. "The ongoing growth of the company has spurred innovation and new job growth in our community, and we are grateful to them for their continued investment.” “Cleveland County is proud to be home to Appalachian Gear Company and congratulates them on their second facility in Kings Mountain. Not only does this company provide award winning products, but high-quality jobs for our citizens. We thank them for choosing to continue to invest in our community,” added Johnny Hutchins, Economic Development Liaison for the Cleveland County Board of Commissioners.

During the week of October 17 – 26, the City of Kings Mountain ground down the stumps along Battleground Avenue and Mountain Street. The trees in this section were removed in preparation for the Streetscape project earlier this year. Due to delays related to NCDOT, the project was delayed. In the meantime, the trees continued to grow. So, the city ground the stumps and paved over the areas where they were planted until the Streetscape project resumes in early Spring 2022.

OPINION

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

TODAY’S QUOTE: We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. –Thomas Jefferson

Pieces of Kings Mountain History To say I love history is an understatement, especially if that history pertains LORETTA to Kings COZART Mountain. As a student in Kings Mountain City Schools, including Central School, I was taught about the Battle of Kings Mountain that occurred on October 7, as part of our regular curriculum. It was part of our community’s history. Every year, just prior to the anniversary, we had a lesson about the Battle of Kings Mountain that was age appropriate by grade. And Kings Mountain City Schools were closed on October 7 if it fell on a weekday. The city held a parade downtown and merchants got into the spirit by decorating their store windows to draw customers inside. I remember pages of ads in the Herald offering sales and special contests to customers who would make it a point to go by to participate. During that time, merchants would also purchase ads to welcome new businesses or to congratulate fellow merchants on a business expansion or remodeling. Kings Mountain High School Band was a highlight of the October 7 event, and majorettes marched down Mountain Street and Battleground Avenue in their beautiful uniforms and tasseled white boots. The band wore

different uniforms then. I’ve since collected photos of the band over the years, and I suspect they wore the same uniforms from 1939 until the early 1980s. I did some research on the gymnasium at Central School and I learned the school’s students took as great pride in their school, as did people of the community. They wanted a proper gymnasium for physical education. Upon building the gym, the auditorium stage area was modified to better suit theatrical performances and oratory events. The community worked hard to make this happen. In that time, the city was a tight-knit community that took pride in “all things Kings Mountain”. But things are changing, and we are witnessing that change right before our eyes. Some people say that people don’t read the newspaper anymore. I just don’t believe this is true, because readers reach out weekly thanking us for articles and photos we published. Newspapers, like the Kings Mountain Herald, are referred to as hyper-local papers. We are called that because we focus on events in our town. We do cover regional and national stories if those stories have a direct impact upon people in our community. But the stories folks want to read the most are ones about local business, sports, social, and religious happenings in Kings Mountain. We

Kings Mountain High School Marching Band 1960 – 1961 in front of Central School. Photo from Herald Archives strive for fairness and accuracy with our stories and hold ourselves to higher standard than what commonly applies to today’s online social media content. The Herald’s lifetime spans almost the entire history of the City of Kings Mountain. W.A. (Andrew) Mauney established the paper in 1886 and the Herald has covered news of our community for 135 years. Throughout that time, citizens placed birth, wedding, and death announcements in the paper. After all, it was the place to keep a public record of things that went on outside of commerce. And it was how people kept up with social news. Readers certainly won’t find stories about Kings Mountain’s events and happenings in big See PIECES, Page 5A

Looking Back A September 16, 1937, Herald article reported that contracts were let for construction a gymnasium, two new rooms, and completion of the auditorium at Kings Mountain High School. During the week of October 21, 1937, work began. According to that article, “Actual work on the new gymnasium of Kings Mountain High School will begin this week. Materials were

placed on the building site on Gaston Street yesterday, and workmen have arrived from the J.A. Jones Construction Company in Charlotte.” “About $40,000 is to be spent on the building program, which will include besides the gymnasium, additions to Central School and repairs to the auditorium,” the story shared. In the April 7, 1938, Herald, student Lillian Moss wrote of the work

done to the auditorium. Once, basketball was played on the stage and Lillian’s article explains how that was accomplished and what the school did to claim the auditorium as a performance site. “There is no improvement to our school that everyone will appreciate more than the improvements to our auditorium. The stage has been fixed See LOOKING BACK, Page 5A

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

LETTER

This letter is a Thank You letter to the couple who helped me in my hour of need on Thursday, Oct. 21. I am sorry, but I don't remember their names. I was so distraught. I left Georgetown, SC in the morning and it was already getting dark by this time. My phone had died and so I couldn't use my GPS or call my son to let him know where I was and I knew he would be worried sick about me. I stopped at a house in Kings Mountain where folks were out in the front yard and asked them for directions. I told them I was trying to get to my son's house in the country on Lewis Farm Road. They started to tell me and then one of the couples said they would just lead me out there even though it was six miles out of town. I will never forget their kindness. It was such a Christian thing to do. I hope they read this and know how much I appreciate their help and kindness. Emily Aspel Georgetown, SC

Who will pay for $2 trillion infrastructure project? If you are making less than $40,000 a year then you probably don’t care that single Glenn Mollette people Guest Editorial making over $523,601 pay 37 percent of their income in federal taxes. Married people filing jointly making over $628,301 also pay 37 percent. These people make it and can afford to pay it we often say. What affects someone else doesn’t bother us that much when it comes to income and taxes. Let’s say you are making $35,000 this year but next year you have an opportunity to make $45,000. Suddenly your federal tax rate increases from 12 percent to 22 percent! This is a big jump. You have the opportunity to make more – but more of what you make goes to taxes. You start calculating the hours and time worked versus how much more you have to pay in taxes and you start wondering if it’s worth what it will take to earn the extra income. If a great job comes

your way to earn $209,426 then you start calculating maybe it would be better to figure out how to make $208,000 and stay in the 32 percent tax bracket. Most likely if you are making $209,426 dollars a year you are probably working very hard for it and turning over $70,000-plus a year to the government doesn’t feel very good. Our government is hungry for money. The $2 trillion infrastructure project that is on the table will mean our government will desperately need lots more money for many years to come. Our grandchildren will be saddled with this debt for most of their lives. We need infrastructure updates; roads, bridges, new water lines, better energy sources, internet and more. The project will create a lot of jobs. However, don’t be fooled into thinking someone else will pay for the project. We hear reports that the debt will be passed onto America’s 600 billionaires. Do you really think Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bernard Arnault, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are going to pay for this $2 trillion-dollar infrastructure deal? America’s billionaires should pay their fair share

like all Americans, but a nation that penalizes prosperity is unfair. I don’t feel sorry for billionaires but a billionaire shouldn’t have to pay 40 percent of his/her earnings to the government. Also, America’s billionaires have the resources to move to another country if they choose to. Their tax rate should be fair but we shouldn’t run them out of the country. If your income grows from $30,000 a year to $60,000, that is no reason for you to be penalized by your country. Congress needs to push for a flat tax and tax everyone including billionaires. A tax rate of 12 to 15 percent on all individuals and corporations would encourage people to make more and America would have more money to cover our infrastructure costs. Plus, more manufacturing would come back to America. Instead, our nation discourages prosperity by penalizing those who make more. Every American will pay for the infrastructure project. We will be paying for a long time. Every American’s tax burden will increase. Don’t let Washington fool you into thinking somebody else will pay for this project. It’s going to be all of us – and for a very long time.

PIECES From Page 4A city papers. Those publications are based in different towns and present news from their city that is deemed more important than little Suzie’s birthday party, or the remodeling of a downtown building to bring it to code to house a new business, and so on. Equally important to the stories, in my opinion, are the photos. There is something special about covering an event at an elementary school or a community festival. Words describe what happened, but the smiles of our people convey the joy and pride citizens feel for this community. It is the job of the Kings Mountain Herald to share these stories on a weekly basis. Things have certainly changed. Kings Mountain no longer manages our school system, and local historical events no longer get priority when it comes to the school calendar. The 241st anniversary of the Battle of Kings Mountain went by without fanfare this year. And only a handful of educators can manage to include the Battle of Kings Mountain in lesson plans because it isn’t in the state’s curriculum. Cleveland County School Board recently decided to sell Central School. Only one member of the school board is from our city. Cleveland County School District certainly values historic properties, because the District Offices are housed in the old Shelby High School at 400 W. Marion Street.

This is a facility, like much of Central School, that was funded through WPA grants during the depression. Even so, Central School is now looked upon as surplus. Surplus? According to Cleveland County GIS, the building, and five-acres of land it sits upon are valued at $1,626,504.00. We’ve seen a 40% increase in the valuation of property in Kings Mountain over the last two years. If that holds true for this property, Central School should now be valued at $2,277,106.00. If the property is sold, Cleveland County Schools must inform the community how much money it receives for this historical property. Land is becoming harder to come by, with all the new development in town. And both city council and county commissioners have discussed traffic congestion issues along Phifer Road, which intersects Kings Mountain Boulevard. And most of the city’s growth is projected to occur along Kings Mountain Blvd. It won’t be long until Cleveland County Schools will be looking for a new school property to house all the new students who will accompany that growth. We have an ideal property already, one that sits in a central location in one of the most picturesque and historic neighborhoods in Kings Mountain. This property was city’s educational epicenter from 1876 until the early 1990s. More than a century of education occurred at this place. Like the Battle of

Kings Mountain, Central School is a huge part of Kings Mountain’s identity. To discard this part of our history would be a travesty. But to sell it as surplus, without taking the proper precautions to protect the building from demolition or without thought as to where our city’s next school will be located, is just irresponsible. Timing of the county’s pending sale and short public notice is also concerning. There is no rush to sell this property unless a buyer has already been identified and the rush is an effort to prevent others from having the opportunity to bid. If so, that is a different situation indeed. Kings Mountain is certainly changing. We are witnessing an influx of new citizens and welcome them with open arms. Development is on the rise and is wonderful to witness. But with these changes, we must not forget our past. We should celebrate the history of our people and the important life events that make living in Kings Mountain unique. The Kings Mountain Herald will be right here to share these stories, record these milestones, and keep citizens informed of important information that impacts the community. We take this job seriously and are honored to have reported the news of Kings Mountain for the last 135 years and for the years to come.

It’s time to Fall back By Loretta Cozart That dreaded time of year us upon us. No, it is not Halloween or even tax season. For many, one of the hardest times of year is when we turn the clock back an hour and lose an entire hour of sleep. Yes, it is time to Fall back. Sunday morning (November 7) at 2am, the time comes to turn the clock back one hour, thus making it 1am. Not many stay up to do this task anymore. With digital devices, like our cell phones, the task is magically done for us. For those with analog clocks, you’ll have to put this task on your To Do list. Unlike your phone, your body can’t make that change so easily, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac. To make the transition easier, follow five tips to help your body adjust. If you have children in school, starting these steps a few days early may also help your entire family adjust better. • Go to bed and get up at the same time. Get at least seven hours of sleep on the day(s) before and after the transition. Lack of sleep tells the body to store fat. While it’s tempting to stay up later or change your habits, it’s best to keep your bedtime consistent. The closer you stick to your normal routine, the faster your body will adjust to the time change. • Practice good habits before bedtime. Slow your body down. Quit caf-

LOOKING BACK From Page 4A so that one will not have to talk loudly to be heard in the back of the auditorium. A Celotex ceiling has been placed under the high steel beams to aid in the sound effect and the entire auditorium has been painted a light buff. Now that we have a new gymnasium, there will be no more

feinated beverages four to six hours before bedtime. Avoid alcohol in the evening. If you are exercising, avoid workouts within four hours of bedtime because raising your body’s core temperature can make it harder to fall asleep. An hour before bedtime, put your phone, computer, or tablet away. Electronics’ high-intensity light hinders melatonin, a hormone that triggers sleepiness. The light stimulates your brain and makes sleep difficult the same way sunlight does. Also, turn off the television and pick up a book. Take a warm–not hot–shower. Dim the lights. Relax. • Keep your dinnertime consistent. Eat more protein, less carbs. On the days around the time change, eat at the same time or even eat a little early. Our sleep cycle and our eating patterns affect each other. Don’t overeat. Also, try to eat more protein instead of carbohydrates. (This might seem like good everyday advice, but it’s even more important during time changes.) Go shop for fish, nuts, and other sources of protein for dinner this week. Avoid the pasta. • Get more light! Go outside and get exposure

to morning sunlight on the Sunday after the time change to help regulate your internal clock. Having shorter daylight hours affects our mood and energy levels, decreasing serotonin. Make time to take a morning or early afternoon walk outside when the Sun is out. Try using a light therapy box or an alarm light that brightens as you wake up. • Take a short cat nap. Some folks may disagree, but if you’re starting to stack up sleepless hours, it’s safer and healthier for your body to give in to a short nap than to continue without sleep. Make it a short nap (no more than 20 minutes) to restore lost sleep hours; however, do NOT take long naps. It may help to go outside into the natural sunlight to cue your body and help retrain your inner clock. If you have difficulty when the clocks change, take a simple step. Gradually adjust your sleep and wake times two to three days before the change by shifting bedtime 15 to 20 minutes earlier each night. This helps your body make gradual shifts and more slowly adjust.

basketball games in the auditorium. This will help to keep the auditorium in better condition for entertainments.” “The stage has now been built in so that now the opening is thirty-four feet instead of fifty feet. There is a portion that has been built in the back of the stage which brings the old stage, which was used for a basketball court, down to an ideal stage

size. Dressing room and storage space is provided for back of the new portion.” “The steps have been removed from the stage. An entrance is now through side doors which have been placed under decorative grills.” “We shall be expecting to see more people at the performances in the future because they will be able to enjoy them more.”

How I became a Christian Christian Testimonies of Some Family Members

mony, King Agrippa responded, “In a short time you will persuade me to become a Christian” (Acts 26:28). And Paul wished that not only Agrippa but all listening would become Christians. That’s my wish for writing this November series of articles—that all those reading, yet to trust Christ, would become Christians. Over the years, I’m so glad many in my family told their testimonies! This month, I aim to tell you how my WWII Veteran dad, 92-yr-old mom, and gospel-fisherman grandpa became Christians. But I want to start with telling you how I came to Christ. I was raised in Savannah,

“Can I tell you how I became a Christian?” That’s an easy and important question to ask. Most people answer, DR. STEVE TAYLOR Pastor “Sure!” We Bethlehem Baptist like to hear Church stories. The testimony of how you came to Christ can influence others. When Paul shared his testi-

GA. Dad wore a hat to his office job and kissed mom on the way out. Mom cared for the 4 children at home and cooked 3 meals a day with supper served at 6pm. We went to church every Sunday, every Wednesday night, and two weeks a year for VBS and revivals. I was considered a good church kid. But something was not right. I followed the rules but felt separated from God. Because I was! Isaiah says, “Your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God” (Isa 59:2). In my high school senior year, I recall trying to pray. I felt like my prayers bounced off the bedroom ceiling. I became

alarmed! For how can a person truly know God? Then, Ann Hardin, a softball coach, spoke after school at our Christian club. In telling us how to become Christians, she quoted these words of Jesus: “I came that they might have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). Then and there, the lights came on in my heart! I saw that the way to God is not rules but Jesus Christ. Then and there, I looked to Christ, and He gave me the life He promised. Almost 50 years have passed—but knowing God is still my life’s lasting purpose (John 17:3). And having eternal life is still my life’s blessed assurance. Jesus says,

I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father who has given them to me is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand (John 10:28-29). Well, that’s how I became a Christian. How about you? If you have never come to Christ, may I ask, “Will you consider coming to Christ?” He will give you eternal life! He will give blessed assurance—for no one will be able to snatch you out of the Father’s hand.

Arlene “Go – Go” Barrett celebrates 90th birthday By David Barrett and Loretta Cozart On November 9, Arlene Schneider Barrett will celebrate her 90th birthday. Of those 90 years, 67 have been in Kings Mountain. Her early years were spent on a farm in Southern Indiana where she rode horses, even a mule. While still a child, she was kicked in the mouth by a horse and it knocked her out, as well as her two front baby teeth. After high school, Arlene attended business school in New Albany, Indiana. Her first job was with Commonwealth Insurance in the same town. Arlene’s mother passed on early from cancer, in 1953. She had an older brother, Robert (Bob) Schneider who was born in 1925. Arlene’s first cousin, Virginia Turley, lived at the next farm across the lane and was dating Lawrence Clunie, who was serving in the US Navy during the Korean War. Lawrence had met, and become best buddies with, Jackie Dean (JD) Barrett, also serving in the Navy. JD accompanied Lawrence to Corydon, Indiana during an extended shore leave. Arlene and JD clicked, began dating, and after JD’s enlistment was finished, were married in Lanesville Methodist Church on September 4, 1954. The new couple moved back to JD’s hometown of Kings Mountain, where JD joined the police department as a patrolman, and Arlene began work in the office of Foote Mineral. JD eventually moved up through the ranks until he became Chief of Police in the late 1970s. He retired from the force in 1985. Arlene and JD bought their first house on Falls Street, which previously belonged to the then current police chief, Paul Sanders. Arlene gave birth to her first child, Cheryl Lee (Barrett) Butler, on Sept 10, 1956. Soon after, she began work as the secretary for the First Presbyterian Church in Kings Mountain,

Arlene’s high school photo. a job she held for 44 years and 4 months until her retirement in the early 1990s. While employed there she was a regular choir member until about 2 years ago. She also served on many committees. Arlene gave birth to her second child, David Dean Barrett, on June 12, 1961. Shortly after, they moved to Park Drive, which is still ‘the home place with the same phone number’ since 1962, and just a stone’s throw from North Elementary School, where her two children attended 1st through 6th grades. Arlene encouraged both of her children to engage in multiple extracurricular activities, such as dance, theater, band, and scouting. Arlene also spent many years as a girls Cadet Scout Leader through the 1970s and early 80s. Arlene loves to travel, has visited all 50 states, and many foreign countries, Australia being one of her favorites. The late Gary Bryant, former minister at the First Presbyterian

Church said, “Her middle name is GO.” Arlene’s last big trip was visiting France a few years ago with a large group of Kings Mountain women, including her daughter, Cheryl. Many of her travel events happened while as a tireless member of the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA), which she joined in 1970 and is still a member of today. “Arlene has been a member of Unit 155 for 50 years. I became a member in 1969 and she became a member in 1970. Arlene and I have traveled together and roomed together at state meetings of the ALA, and she traveled all over the state with me when I was state president of the auxiliary in 1976. We had 25 districts then from Murphy to Manteo. Arlene was herself the President of the Department of NC She also traveled with me to South Korea, Taiwan, and The Philippines when I was National President in 1999 -2000,” said good friend and ALA member Lib Stewart. Arlene was state president of the auxiliary in 1986. Arlene described herself as ‘a staunch Democrat,’ and made many trips to Washington, DC for Auxiliary business. She has attended lunches with four former first ladies, met multiple past Congress members, and on one overseas trip, attended dinner with the Prime Minister of Taiwan. Arlene and JD also took part in a yearly reunion trip for JD’s Navy buddies who served on the USS Neches (A0-47) during the Korean war. These reunions were held in many US states over the years. Their favorite was held in Alaska, where they took part in a cruise along the Alaskan shoreline. Until recently, Arlene and her family would travel back to the family farm in Indiana for a yearly visit her father, Otto, who passed on June 24, 1983, her brother Bob, who passed on November 1, 2012, and his family,

Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers will host a traditionally strong Franklin team Friday night at 7:30 in the opening round of the NCHSAA 3A state playoffs. While the Mountaineers’ record on paper is a couple games better, Coach Greg Lloyd warns that Franklin is very dangerous and capable of beating anyone. “They’re traditionally a very strong program,” he noted. “They run and pass very well. Their quarterback is a very good passer. They have a big running back and

linebacker that runs hard. They are well coached and a traditionally strong program.” Franklin, whose long line of good head coaches included former Duke University head coach Fred Goldsmith, faces tough teams on a weekly basis. Those teams include the likes of Tuscola, Canton Pisgah, Smokey Mountain, West Henderson and TC Roberson, all of whom are traditionally strong and have many championships to their credit.

The Mountaineers will be operating at less than a hundred percent as they have a lot of players injured, including their leading tackler AJ Richardson who is probably out for the rest of the season. Several other players were injured in last week’s Big South Conference championship game with Crest and will also be out this week. They include Zavion Smith. “He was out for the whole second half and it really hurt us when he went See FRIDAY, Page 2B

KM spikers lose to North Iredell Kings Mountain High’s women’s volleyball team fell to a strong North Iredell team 29-27, 25-11, 25-10 in the quarter-final round of the NCHSAA 3A state playoffs Saturday at North Iredell. The winners advance to the state 3A semi-finals with a 25-1 overall record while the Lady Mountaineers, who won the Big South Conference with a perfect 14-0 record, ended with a 21-3 overall mark. Aaliyah Byers completed a great high school career with 16 kills and Paige Bagwell ended her career with eight digs and 24 assists. Meile Songaila had five kills and 11 digs, Myracle Davis four kills and Caroline Barber 19 digs. Before losing on Saturday, the Lady Mountaineers eliminated East Lincoln 2624, 25-16, 25-13 in a second round playoff match Tuesday, and county rival Crest 25-17, 25-12, 25-14 in a third round match Thursday. Against East Lincoln,

Songaila had 13 serve receptions, six digs, three blocks, 16 kills and 13 service points. Byers had two serve receptions, 10 digs, three blocks, two assists, 20 kills and five service points. Barber had 14 serve receptions, 15 digs, three assists and three service points. Bagwell had seven digs, five blocks, 38 assists, two kills and five service points. Davis added four digs, six blocks and six kills. Against the Lady Chargers, Bagwell dished out 31 assists to give her over 1,500 for her four-year career. She also added three blocks, two digs and eight service points. Byers had 21 kills, two blocks, five serve receptions, two digs and four service points. Songaila added nine kills, one block, eight serve receptions, 12 digs and four service points. Barber had 13 digs, six serve receptions and 27 service points.

Mountaineers fall to Crest 42-20 Two big defensive plays late in the third quarter and early in the fourth and the running of Mari Adams were the big differences as the Crest Chargers broke open a close game for a 42-20 victory over the

Mountaineers in the Big South Conference championship game Friday night at Kings Mountain’s John Gamble Stadium. Adams was an offensive highlight reel, gaining 264 yards rushing which was by

far the top offensive output against the Mountaineer D this season; but during crunch time the big plays came when the Chargers intercepted a KM pass in the end zone and recovered a fumble on a potential KM

TD drive early in the fourth quarter. The Mountaineers, down 21-14, were on the Crest five with a first and goal late in the third period but couldn’t get in. Three plays See CREST, Page 2B

Peyton Fisher runs after catching a pass in Friday’s game with Crest at Gamble Stadium.

From Page 1B out,” Coach Lloyd noted. Sel Randolph, who had one of his best games of the season last week, hurt his knee and will probably be out as well. He is on crutches with a swollen knee. Running back Caleb Holland, who had just returned to the lineup for the Ashbrook game, was hurt again against Crest and will also be out. “It will be running back by committee this week with (Robert) Kendrick, Micah (Ward) and Jake (Lloyd),” Coach Lloyd noted. “Jake also plays slot so he’ll probably stay out there on offense if Sel can’t play.” Lloyd will look for Andre Willis to get more playing time, and some younger players should see some action too. “We’re pretty depleted

right now,” Lloyd said. “We have a lot of people going both ways. It’s supposed to be cold Friday so that might be a good thing. “The key for us will be to stop their #15 (junior tailback/tight end Ty Handley (who comes in with 953 yards rushing and nine TDs),” Lloyd said. “He is a big kid.” The KM defense will also have to defend well against a good passing quarterback, Chris McGuire, who has passed for 1,420 yards and 14 touchdowns. His favorite target is wide receiver Keagan Pollock (#1) who has 45 catches for 821 yards and nine TDs. “They move the ball in the air and on the ground and finish drives,” Lloyd says. “We have to get a lot of people to the ball, play hard and have fun. If we do that we have a good shot at advancing.”

From Page 1B later with the Chargers on the 11, Adams got off a 63-yard run before being chased down by D’Andre Hoyle. But, three plays later Adams went four yards into the end zone and all of a sudden Crest had doubled the score to 28-14. Kings Mountain was able to answer with a 60-yard drive which featured a 27yard reception by Peyton Fisher and a 15-yard touchdown pass from Littlejohn to Hoyle to get back to within a TD at 28-20. KM later made it to the Crest 41 but lost the ball on a fumble with 6:50 left in the game. Two plays later, the Chargers’ Carter Green broke a 29-yard touchdown for a 35-20 lead. After the kickoff, the Chargers’ D held the Mountaineers to three and out and they ran the clock from the 4:29 mark to 52.8 seconds to score on six straight carries by Green to account for the final margin. Kings Mountain had one of its lowest offensive outputs of the season, gaining just 107 yards rushing and 186 passing for a total of 293 yards but opened with a 74yard drive to take a 7-0 lead on a 16-yard touchdown reception by Bryson Brown and an extra point kick by Jaden Ellis. Fisher made three key

11/3/21

tackles, and Zaylen Ramos and Curtis Simpson had tackles for loss to hold that lead through the end of the first quarter. An 18-yard run by Robert Kendrick and 12-yard reception by Hoyle got the Mountaineers to the Crest 43 but they lost the ball on downs. Keyed by a 22-yard sneak by Green, the Chargers drove 56 yards in seven plays with Adams covering the final three to tie the score. A pass interception by Brandon McCall and return to the KM 42 set up a seven-play drive capped by Adams’ 17yard run to put Crest up 14-7 with 3:44 left in the half. Despite an eight-yard quarterback sack, the Mountaineers got big pass receptions by Bryson Brown for 14 yards, Zay Smith for 22 and Sel Randloph for 11 to set up a 26-yard TD pass from Littlejohn to Brown for a 14-14 halftime tie. Crest took the lead for good on the first drive of the second half, moving 80 yards in 13 plays to score on a six yard run by Adams. KM answered with its drive to the Crest five but couldn’t get it in as a run for no gain followed by two incomplete passes led to the Crest INT in the end zone.

I’m not throwin’ away my shot By Loretta Cozart The musical Hamilton won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Musical, along with countless other awards that year. The theme song for the musical is “I am not throwin' away my shot.” North Carolina has a similar theme for its My Spot, My Shot campaign encouraging residents to get their COVID-19 shots. The biggest challenge now comes in locating the vaccine. Vaccines.gov has a search tool to make the job of finding

a specific vaccine easier. Visit their website and search by zip code. As of Sunday, Oct. 31, five facilities in Kings Mountain offer the Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccines: • Kintegra Family Medicine – Kings Mountain, 502 W King St., Kings Mtn, NC 28086, Phone: 704-710-1077 In Stock: Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines • TruCore Laboratories, 608 W King St Bldg. 2, Kings Mountain, NC 28086, 704750-7279. In Stock: Moderna

and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines • Walgreens Co., 900 Shelby Rd, Kings Mountain, NC 28086, 704-739-2127/ In Stock: Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine • Walmart Inc #10-7146, 1011 Shelby Rd, Kings Mountain, NC 28086, 704-259-5213 In Stock: Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines • CVS Pharmacy, Inc. #06407, 1017 Shelby Rd, Kings Mountain, NC 28086, 704-739-2571.

Currently, 1,335 people are hospitalized and 18,050 people have died from the virus in the state since the pandemic began.

In Cleveland County, 18,367 COVID-19 cases have been reported and 310 people have died. In the last 10 days, 323 new cases were reported. Currently, 46% of the population have been vaccinated. By contrast, almost half the population of Kings Mountain, or 5,201 people, have contracted the virus and 80 have died. On October 27, Governor Roy Cooper and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. provided an update on the state’s COVID-19 key metrics and trends. “We are grateful to see this latest surge in COVID19 taper off,” said Governor Cooper. “And as we try to drive down our numbers, we know what works. Vaccines. The more people who get their shots, the less COVID we’ll have.” COVID-19 vaccine booster shots are now available for more North Carolinians. The Food and Drug Administration has authorized, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommend Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 booster shots to help strengthen and extend protections against COVID-19 infections. Pfizer-BioNTech (COMINARTY) booster shots have been available since Sept. 24. “I am encouraged to see that every day more people are making the decision to get

vaccinated," said Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. “Getting vaccinated is a powerful action you can take to protect your health, to protect your loved ones, and to help end this pandemic at last.” To date, North Carolina has administered over 11.5 million doses of the COVID19 vaccine, with 66 percent of the adult population fully vaccinated. 71 percent of adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine, including 92 percent of North Carolinians 65 and over. Vaccines may be available for younger children as early as the end of next week. Once the CDC completes its review process, there will be ample vaccine supply across the state. More than 750 locations are preparing to provide vaccines to this age group, including doctors’ offices, pharmacies, local health departments, community vaccination events and family vaccination sites. The CDC recommends boosters for everyone who received the Johnson & Johnson shot more than 2 months ago. Boosters are also recommended for people who received the Moderna or Pfizer shot more than 6 months ago if you are 65 or older, if you are 18 or older and have a medical condition that puts you at higher risk or if you live or work in a setting that puts you at higher risk for exposure to COVID-19.

Prominent Kings Mountain citizens lose case before US Supreme Court By Hayne Neisler

DOYLE CAMPBELL HONORED – The Mecklenburg and Battle of Kings Mountain Chapters, Sons of the American Revolution, and the Colonel Frederick Hambright Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, conducted a grave marking ceremony honoring Doyle Edward Campbell at Mountain Rest Cemetery on Saturday, October 23. Pictured, left to right, are SAR members: Bill Anderson, Russell McCullouch, Jeff Elmore, Ray Maxson, Steve McKee, Jim Wood, Tom Phlegar, Clark Summers, Jack Bowman, Dr John Still, and Joe Culik.

In March of 1913, Kings Mountain industrialists W.A. Mauney and C.E. Neisler, Sr., formed a new company based in Kings Mountain called the Saluda-Hendersonville Interurban Railway. The purpose of the new chartered corporation was to build an electric interurban railway serving the western North Carolina towns of Hendersonville, Flat Rock, and Saluda. The new railway would operate from overhead electrical current like city street cars. The new corporation was greatly applauded by local citizens in Western North Carolina as roads in the area were very crude and underdeveloped, unpaved, and unnavigable in rainy weather. To supply electrical power for the new railway the Saluda-Hendersonville Railway proposed constructing a huge dam on the Green River, cre-

ating a huge lake for hydroelectric power. The new lake was described in the May 30, 1913, Western North Carolina Times newspaper as the largest artificial lake east of the Mississippi River. The water flowing over the 160-foot-high dam would have a fall equal to Niagara Falls. Also, Mr. Mauney and Mr. Neisler of were keenly aware of the profit potential selling surplus electricity to the booming textile mill business interests in Spartanburg, S.C. Similarly, James Buchanan Duke had achieved a business bonanza building dams for hydroelectric electricity on the Catawba River to supply power to the rapidly growing city of Charlotte. To build the proposed lake the railway applied for condemnation of certain land near the Green River. Local landowners fought the condemnation petition claiming

the real intent of the new railway was to supply lucrative hydroelectricity to potential textile customers not to provide a railway for local citizens as the organizers claimed. The landowners took their claim to the North Carolina Supreme Court but lost. Taking their case one step further, they filed a claim with the United States Supreme Court which agreed to hear their case in April 1917. Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote the opinion, agreeing that the real purpose of the new railway was not public good but profit making. The Supreme Court set a new precedent that the right of condemnation for water rights would have to be in the interest of public good and not business profits for electrical utilities to proceed.

By JIM MILLER Editor

Tips and Tools for Family Caregivers Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend any resources that offer help to family caregivers? I’ve been taking care of my 86-year-old mother and could use some help. Burned-Out Brenda

Use respite: Respite services can provide short-term care to your mom so you can take some time off. To locate services in your area, try the ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center at ARCHrespite.org.

Dear Brenda, Caring for an aging parent or other loved one over a period of time can be very challenging both physically and mentally. Fortunately, there are a number of tips and services you can turn to that can help lighten the load. Here are several to consider.

Hire in-home help: You may want to consider hiring a part-time home-care aide that can help with things like preparing meals, housekeeping or personal care. Costs can run anywhere from $12 to $30 an hour depending on where you live and the qualification of the aide. To find help through an agency, use Medicare’s search tool Medicare.gov/ care-compare. Or to find someone on your own, which is a more affordable way to go, try websites like Care.com or CareLinx.com.

Assemble a care team: A good first step is to put together a network of people including family, friends and even neighbors that you can call on to help out when you can’t be there or need a break. Tap local services: Many communities offer a range of free or subsidized services that help seniors and caregivers by providing things like home delivered meals, transportation, senior companion services and more. Call 211 to find out what’s available in your community, or call AARP’s caregiving resource center (877-333-5885), which provides referrals to local resources.

Use financial tools: If you’re handling your mom’s finances, you can make things easier by arranging direct deposit for her income sources and set up automatic payments for her utilities and other routine bills. Also, consider setting up your mom’s online banking service at her bank so you can pay her other bills and monitor her account anytime. If you want or need help, there are professional daily money managers (see AADMM.

com to locate someone) that can do it for you. They charge between $60 and $150 per hour.

Also, if your mom is lower-income use BenefitsCheckup.org, a free, confidential website that will help you locate financial assistance programs that can help pay for her medications, utilities, health care, and other needs. Get insurance help: If you have questions about what Medicare or Medicaid covers, or about long-term care, your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) provides free counseling on all these issues. Call 877-839-2675 or visit ShiptaCenter.org to locate a nearby counselor. You can also get help at Medicare.gov or by calling 800-633-4227, and through the Medicare Rights Center, which staffs a helpline at 800-333-4114. Tap other resources: There are a number of other organizations you can draw on for additional information like the Family Care Alliance (Caregiver.org/ family-care-navigator), which provides a state-by-state listing of caregiving programs and services; Caring.com, which

offers caregiving advice, senior housing information and online support groups; the Alzheimer’s Association (ALZ. org/care), which provides information unique to the challenges of dementia caregivers; and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (www.caregiver. va.gov), which offers caregiver support services to veterans and even spouses of veterans.

And, if you happen to be sharing care responsibilities with others, sites like LotsaHelpingHands.com and CaringBridge. org can help you coordinate together. Take care of yourself: Make your own health a priority. Being a caregiver is a big job that can cause emotional and physical stress and lead to illness and depression. The only way you can provide the care your mother needs is to make sure you stay healthy. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
