American Legion Auxiliary's Fall Craft Fair this Saturday Casino decision coming down to the wire

According to a Charlotte Observer article dated November 6, Catawba Two Kings Casino hasn’t satisfied federal regulators as an investigation into its business dealings nears the end. At issue is the legality of its business dealings, and specifically who profits from it.

In March, National Indian Gaming Commission Chief Compliance Officer Tom Cunningham told Catawba Nation Chief Bill Harris that a ground lease between the tribe and Kings Mountain Sky Boat Partners, LLC, granted the company “management authority” over the casino operation and had not been approved by the gaming commission chairman.

Violations could result in the issuance of a notice of violation, a civil fine assessment, and/or an order of temporary closure to the Nation and Sky Boat as the manager of the Tribe’s gaming, the Observer reported.

The article went on to share, “Doug Brown, a Cleveland County business owner, and early investor in the Catawba Casino project, said the gaming commission has warned

interested parties of too much involvement from non-native people. He unloaded all financial interest in the project over the last year fearing the project’s impending failure, he said. ‘I don’t know if they’re going to be able to build the casino,’ Brown said.”

Brown’s name is also connected to E5 Holdings, LLC, owner of property directly across Kings Mountain Blvd. from the casino site. This is the same property the Herald reported on July 22, 2020. At the time CHT Enterprises, LLC became the managing member of E5 Holdings, LLC, along with members Eddie Holbrook, Stuart Legrand, and Douglas Brown.

As of February 2022, the Annual Report filed with the Secretary of State in Nevada, those details had not changed, and Eddie Holbrook, Stuart Legrand, and Douglas Brown remain listed as officers. CHT Enterprises, LLC also remains listed as the registered agent.

The Observer reached out to Chief Bill Harris on See CASINO, Page 2A

This special event will begin at the intersection of West Mountain Street and South Railroad Avenue at the corner of the Joy Theatre, with a parade to Patriots Park being led by Loch

A wreath ceremony at the War Memorial located

To host this event, a portion of South Railroad Av-

enue and West Gold Street will be closed beginning at 9:00 a.m. and remain closed or barricaded until 11:00 a.m. Please use extreme caution when traveling on Railroad Avenue and West Gold Street due to the increase in motor vehicles and pedestrians walking.

Gaston Police Dept. charged suspect with attempted murder for October 29 shooting

Detectives from the Gastonia Police Department (GPD) have charged Malik Abdur Rahman Prince, age 36, of Gastonia, with attempted murder for the October 29, early morning shooting of a 24-year-old man while the two were riding in a car together. Prince and the victim are known to each other.

At approximately 4:30 a.m. on October 29, GPD and Fire and Rescue personnel responded to the intersection of Broad Street and E. Long Avenue for the report of a shooting that just occurred inside a vehicle. Upon arrival, first responders found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. After the shooting, Prince ran away from the car but was quickly arrested by officers. The victim was flown to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries. The adult female driver of the car was not injured.

During the investigation, detectives determined that the victim was in the front

passenger seat and Prince was in the right rear passenger seat of the car. For reasons still under investigation, Prince pulled out a handgun while the car was stopped at the intersection and fired multiple rounds through the back of the front passenger seat, striking the victim multiple times.

Prince is charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill or seriously injure. He is being held without bond.

STI Fabric named Outstanding Employer by Gov. Cooper

STI Fabrics’ work

with Gaston County Corrections resulted in their being named an Outstanding Employer by Gov. Roy Cooper last month. The family-owned company has been an integral part of the Kings Mountain community for nearly six decades. And as their business grew, their impact on the community grew as well. Throughout their history, the company has been determined to make that impact a positive one for generations to come.

Their latest Community Outreach Initiative has been highlighted by their involvement with Gaston County Corrections and their Work Release Program. Since the start of the partnership, about 40 inmates have come to work at their plant, weaving and warping yarn, cleaning facilities, preparing the fabric, and performing other duties needed around the business.

Inmates only work on the first shift and must follow strict rules set by Gaston Correctional Center to remain employed. A single infraction can take an inmate out of the program, and it can take years to get back in.

Out of 30 inmates sent to work at STI in the last year, 12 are still employed through the Work Release Program, 18 have been released, and 10 have come back to work full time at the plant. . This means 56% of work-released inmates come back to work at STI.

A recent study by Northwestern University found that employees with records had a 13% lower turnover rate, saving the company $1,000 per year for each hired inmate and increasing their overall retention rate. This is because felons have such a difficult time finding jobs, so when they do, they tend to keep them longer.

One reason their retention rate is so high with the Work Release Offenders is because they start them at $15/hour. According to Zip Recruiter, North Carolina ranks lowest nationwide for felony job salaries with a state average of only $11.08/hour. This is the equivalent of $443/week or $1,920/ month.

By offering offenders a livable wage, they give them the opportunity to make, and save, enough money while incarcerated so that when they are finally released, they will have the ability to pay for basic things like transportation, food, and housing. Once they are released, they have other opportunities to increase their pay by working different shifts and applying for other po-

sitions in the company while also qualifying for healthcare and retirement benefits.

The money is not everything, however. Kevin Young, one of the first inmates to work at STI in 2019, returned to the plant last year after leaving prison, in part due to the relationships he made with their HR managers and his co-workers. While working with Kevin and other released inmates, STI has become familiar with some of the barriers in place when it comes to hiring folks that have been formerly incarcerated.

As difficult as life in prison can be, getting out brings its own set of challenges. In 2020 the NC Department of Public Corrections nixed a program that allowed inmates to get an ID while in prison. The change has left many offenders in a catch-22 when trying to find a place to live or a way to work.

To get a driver’s license in North Carolina you need two verifiable forms of address. A hotel does not count, it needs to be a lease or a power bill. The catch-22 is that you cannot get a lease without a driver’s license.

Since their involvement with the Work Release Program, STI has become hyperaware of these issues and has sponsored and supported causes related to solving the problems facing re-entry. One of those causes has been a newly added men’s shelter in Shelby, NC. They recently donated $1,000 to Trailhead Men’s Shelter and equipped them with the furniture they need to house and help men in Cleveland County get back on their feet. Shelters like these become instrumental in providing a temporary place to live once released from incarceration.

They have also teamed up with Cedric Dean Homes so that their released offenders have a place to live after being released. Not only does Cedric Dean Homes provide a place to stay, but also lends out vehicles for those with licenses to drive to and from work.

Ben Strayhorn was recently released last month and now stays at Cedric Dean Homes.

“I appreciate and respect STI for allowing inmates to work for the company. Also, providing opportunities and resources to help their transition into society.

In my case, Cedric Dean Homes was the best decision for me. He’s very professional and he can also relate to what I’ve been through,” Strayhorn said.

“The partnership be-

tween Cleveland Community College and STI has been developed over the past several years and has impacted both students and adults in a positive way,” said Tony Fogleman, Vice President of Economic and Workforce Development for CCC. “I have always been impressed with the vision and leadership of STI in looking for opportunities to improve the awareness, training, and community impact of manufacturing in Cleveland County. STI continues to be innovative through apprenticeship and inmate re-entry programs that change the lives of people. STI has become a valuable business leader in our county whether it is with the K-12 school system, CCC, Economic Development, or the Chamber of Commerce. I can say that we are stronger as a community because of the partnership and leadership of STI.”

Cleveland Community College has been a strategic partner in facilitating these Prison to Community Simulations. CCC was also recently gifted a plot of adjacent land that was once a prison facility. This facility is now being used to train prisoners in useful trades like plumbing, electrical work, and carpentry. These training programs prepare inmates for life outside of prison and ensure that they will have steady work upon their release.

This initiative not only has a positive impact on STI by creating a pipeline of qualified job candidates but also has a profound impact on our surrounding communities by providing jobs to people who previously may not have been hired due to social stigmas. These jobs create an opportunity to pay taxes and child support while creating a residual

economic impact on surrounding area businesses.

STI Fabrics is proud of the work we’ve done and the work we continue to do to bring new opportunities to underrepresented people in our community.

The Work Release Program has been extremely beneficial for STI Fabrics, the makers of Revolution Performance Fabrics. The success of the program is due in large part to our existing workforce giving it a chance to grow. Through our involvement in several re-entry simulations, the company better understands the challenges facing the men upon their re-entry to society.

Those involved get the opportunity to bring some light to the end of a long tunnel for these men and their families. After they complete the Work Release Program, STI can hire a skilled associate that understands our company’s culture. The STI family along with the NCDPS are working hard to make Cleveland and Gaston Counties better places to live and work.

“When I got out of

big boy’s school, I didn’t have anywhere plann ed for myself. STI promised they would help me but I also ad to help myself. Now I have my own place, my job is still looking great and there’s plenty of room for advancement I love my job and the company I now work for,” said STI employee Robin Phillips

Employee Aris Lampropoulos agrees, “Starting over is a hard thing to do in life. Hard work and determination to succeed will bring you a long way. STI has helped me in so many ways including promotions. I’ve made a way for myself in this game of life. Always trust in God and he won’t lead you wrong.

Happenings downtown

Taking a walk around downtown Kings Mountain last Saturday, the Herald observed several changes of note. Streetscape continues and the intersection of S. Piedmont Avenue at Mountain Street is still closed as sidewalks are being poured. It appears the project could take three or four weeks, but that is just a guess. Weather factors, such as rain, make it difficult to know for sure.

The north side of Mountain Steet, from Dellinger’s Jewel Shop to just east of the Ervin Center, has a new sidewalk. That is good for the merchants along that side of Mountain Street. Across the street, the sidewalk was poured along the parking lot of Kings Mountain Baptist. The segment in front of the church appears to be up next, as progress is moving eastward.

On Battleground Avenue, all parking spaces were full before 10 a.m. Saturday as Trackview Hall’s Christmas Vendor Show drew a crowd waiting outside for the doors to open. A steady stream of customers continued in and out of the event all day as shoppers looked for unique Christmas items and décor.

Revolution Brew House, at 211 S Battleground Ave., closed earlier this summer and new tenant, Painting Class, LLC, scheduled their ribbon cutting with the chamber on Friday, November 11 from 1 – 2 p.m.

Just down the block, Appalachian Gear moved out of Gregg Johnson’s building at 213 S. Battleground Avenue last week.

A notable change along S. Battleground was the painting or the facades of 227 S. Battleground Avenue and the adjacent building, 229 S. Battleground Avenue. The two buildings are painted in slightly different neutral colors. Carolina Cotton Company painted both the front and rear facades of their building with black trim. Upstairs window sashes were painted black also.

Down at the intersection of E. Gold Street and S. Battleground Avenue, U 180 LLC purchased the McGinnis Department Store building along with the building at the corner. Kings Mountain Thrift’s lease expired at the end of August and was not renewed. Rumors speculate what will go into that space, but for now the owners have not shared that information.

Downtown has seen a lot of change, and change will continue as real estate prices continue to rise. The fact that investors are working to improve their properties has drawn more interest in locating businesses in downtown. However, recent economic factors, including inflationary factors, along with the Federal Reserve raising interest rates, have slowed speculation somewhat. One thing is for sure, change is coming and finding the right tenants for the downtown business district is key to drawing shoppers and revitalizing this

Life

Most of my life I have heard the phrase “Patience is a virtue.”

Now, what is a virtue? A virtue is a trait or quality deemed to be morally excellent and therefore to be valued. Well, while it may be valued, most of us have a difficult time being patient. Too many people experience extreme patient deficiency. This is sometimes revealed in our prayer lives, “Lord, I need patience and I need it

right now!” I’ve been there myself more times than I would like to admit. So often when we pray to God for something or for some concern, we want an immediate response…right now! We don’t want to wait. We want it now! We live in an instant “on” world. When we want light in our homes, we just flip a switch. If we need to heat up some food, we stick it in the microwave for 30 seconds, etc.

In the Old Testament,

Abraham had to learn patience. In Hebrews 6:14-15 we read: “I, the Lord, will bless you with many descendants! Then after Abraham had been very patient, he was given what God had promised.”

At age 75, he was given God’s promise of a son. Ten years later, he still did not have a son. After twenty years—still no son! At last, when he was 100 years old—a quarter of a century after the Lord had made the promise, baby boy Isaac was born!

Surely there must have had times of doubt during that lengthy wait, however, Abraham continued to trust and watch for God to bring

about what He had promised.

There are other examples of patience in the Scriptures. As a young man, Jacob met the girl of his dreams, but he had to work many years before marrying her.

At 17, Joseph had a God-given vision of blessing but languished more than a decade of slavery and prison before receiving the reward.

David was anointed Israel’s King as a teen but spent the next 14 plus years running from King Saul for his life before taking the throne.

Not only was this true with some of our most-

noted biblical characters, it is also true of people throughout the ages. The purposes of God often develop slowly because His grand designs are never hurried.

The great New England preacher Phillip Brooks often suffered moments of frustration and irritability. One day a friend saw him feverishly pacing the floor like a caged lion. “What’s the trouble, Mr. Brooks?” he asked. “The trouble is that I’m in a hurry, but God isn’t!” Haven’t we felt this way many times?

Some of the greatest missionaries of history devotedly spread the seed of God’s Word and yet had to wait long periods of time before seeing the fruit of their labors. For example, the missionary William Cary labored 7 years be-

fore seeing the first convert to Christ. Adoniram Judson labored for 14 years before one convert was received into the Christian church.

So, what can we learn from these stories of patience?

Rewards come as we are patient and learn to wait on the Lord and His timing instead of our own. Shortcuts never lead to where the Lord wants us to be. The long road, however, is filled with faithful servants.

In Isaiah 40:31 we read: “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles: they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.”

Mountaineers

round

Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers will take the field against a skilled and dangerous Smoky Mountain team in the second round of the NCHSAA 3A playoffs Friday night at John Gamble Stadium.

While the top-seeded Mountaineers were dominating 32nd seed St. Stephens in the first round, Smoky Mountain was defeating a very good Central Davidson team 41-38 in a back-and-forth battle to improve to 7-4 overall. That record is somewhat misleading as all of their losses were close to very good teams and some of their victories were over perennial powerhouses like Franklin, which gave KM a fit in an opening round game last year.

Kings Mountain’s defense will be seeing one of the top dual threat quar-

terbacks in the state in Jed West who through 11 games has passed for 2,383 yards and ran for 854, both marks #1 for his team. Isaiah McNeely, a 185-pound junior running back and kick returner, is also a big offensive threat as he has chalked up 586 yards rushing.

The Mountaineer defense will also be challenged by some good receivers such as Da’mare Williams who has caught 55 passes for 943 yards and 13 touchdowns, and Jayce Stillwell who has 43 receptions for 642 yards and six TDs. Sawyer Snider is also a dangerous receiver and kick returner.

“Smoky Mountain is very good,” Mountaineer head coach Greg Lloyd says. “They run a spread and they have one of the best quarterbacks you’ll see

and one of the best receivers in western North Carolina. They have several others who are big time players.

“They have a multiple defense. They’re one of the better teams we’ll play all year.”

Lloyd noted that West Henderson, that is still in the playoffs, played the Mustangs to a 21-19 game.

Following Holland’s return and Jaden Ellis’s PAT for a quick 7-0 lead, the Mountaineer defense held the Indians to three and out and Xzorion Lenair returned a punt to the visitors’ 44. Teddy Jeffries took a handoff from quarterback Lamont Littlejohn and went off right tackle for a 14-0 lead.

With the Indians facing third and 22 from their own

a 36-

21 on the next series, Jake Lloyd broke in front of the Indians’ intended receiver for an interception and

“So we will have to play very well,” he said. “I think we should be a hundred percent. We’re pretty healthy. Curtis Simpson sprained his ankle last week but there’s no fracture, so I think he will play.”

This will be just the second time the Mountaineers have faced Smoky Mountain. If this game is like

the first, it will be a barn burner.

36-30 after KM threw three straight incomplete passes in their final 10-yard playoff period. But quarterback Ryan Hollifield found Darius “NuNu” Ross in the back of the end zone for the tying TD and Daniel Honeycutt kicked the point after to give the Mountaineers the win over the top-ranked 3A team in the state.

Another three and out forced the Indians to punt again. This time, the Mountaineers took possession at their own 49. Following two carries by Holland for 17 and five yards – sandwiched around a 13-yard reception by Ja’Qualyn Sanders - Littlejohn hit Bryson Brown on a slant for a 35-0 lead with 3:38 on the clock.

The Indians picked up their initial first down on a face mask penalty against the Mountaineers, but the defense quickly took charge again and held them at midfield. After a holding penalty on KM, Littlejohn hit Jake Lloyd with a pass for 19 yards and a first down at the Indians’ 41 and Jeffries took care of the rest for a 42-0 lead with still 1:17 left on the first quarter clock.

That would be the end of the Mountaineer scoring, largely because the home team did not wish to run up the score. The coaching staff began substituting and all starters were on the sidelines in the second half supporting the second unit.

“We got everybody in the game and that’s good,” noted Coach Greg Lloyd. “We were able to rest some people. I doubt if the first team offense played maybe 12 plays. They didn’t get a lot of work but getting the lead helped us keep people fresh for this week. Simpson rolled his ankle but otherwise we’re pretty healthy. I think he’ll be able to play Friday.”

The Indians were able to finally get into KM territory late in the half but Lloyd’s interception stopped them at the 43, and after another change of possession the Indians were able to make it from their own 26 to the KM 46 but Micah Ward’s interception ended their hopes

on the last play of the first half.

With the running clock rule in effect, the Indians ate up most of the third quarter on a 15-play, 80yard drive that ended with a quarterback Peyton Young’s 11 yard TD run with 35 seconds on the clock. Facing fourth and seven at the KM 22, the Indians first went for a field goal, which was good, but KM was penalized on the play for roughing the kicker which set up Young’s TD.

Josiah Hill gained 37 yards on five carries and Ward 22 on four totes to take the game clock down to 5:11 and guys like Dariyon Black, Jason Melton and Jakarri Roberts held St. Stephens at bay the rest of the night.

Because of the outstanding defensive and special team efforts, the Mountaineers had very few running plays by the first unit. Jeffries had just two carries for 89 yards and Holland two for 22.

wide receiver, corner and safety and returning kickoffs and punts. He made trips to Kings Mountain and to their opponent’s field every Friday night when his son Xavier was playing for Coach Greg Lloyd’s Mountaineers in mid-teens. Xavier is now living in Raleigh.

Before going into administration, Johnson taught and coached some in Bessemer City and schools in Catawba County.

A member of the Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame, Johnson was threetime All-SAC8 and Honorable Mention All-American during a great four-year career at Gardner-Webb. He intercepted 25 passes that’s still a school record. He is the only football player ever to be named Kings Mountain’s most valuable player two years straight.

“Sports has been good to me,” Johnson said prior to Friday’s playoff game. “It made me what I am today. What lessons you learn as an athlete come back to you. You go through rigors and it makes you a better person.”

He recalled that the 1975 and ’76 KMHS baseball teams won the conference championship. He played in the outfield and was one of the team’s best all-around players standing out in the field, at bat and on the base

“I had a lot of good teammates,” he noted. “The 1975 team went to the state tournament. That’s the year we had David Lancaster, Tony Payne and a lot of other good players. We went deep in the third round. We beat Shelby twice during the regular season and then lost to them in the playoffs.”

He also played on some good basketball teams under Coach Allen Dixon.

“I had good teammates in basketball, too,” he noted.

“People like Jim Thompson, Tommy Manning, Charles Bell and Butch Blalock. They were really good athletes.

“My son Xavier played football for Greg Lloyd at Kings Mountain,” he noted.

“I saw a lot of their games then. 2014 was his senior year and we went up to West Henderson in the playoffs and almost froze to death. I think that’s the coldest I’ve ever been.

“Just to be on the ball field is great,” he said.

“That’s where my heart was. Sports is still a family thing for me. I grew up without a dad and people in sports really embraced me. It’s always been a tradition for me.”

Friday was the first time Johnson has been back to Gamble Stadium since the new Brinkley Field was built and artificial turf put down on the playing field.

“This is very nice,” he said.

Elite Trailblazers advance in Big South YFL playoffs

The KM Elite Trailblazers advanced three of four teams to the semifinals of the Big South YFL playoffs Saturday. All semifinal games will be played Sat., Nov. 12 at St. Stephens High School in Hickory.

In the 6U division, the Trailblazers Tiny Mites earned the #2 seed and a first round bye. They will face the #3 Cramerton Panthers in the semifinal round.

The 8U Trailblazers Mighty Mites got a 14-6 victory over the Boger City Steelers. Jasir Garner rushed for a touchdown and Nazareth Long ran a touchdown and two-point conversion.

The defense gave an outstanding team effort, getting big plays from Garner, Long, G’Hailyn Smith, O’Brian Smith Jr., Khyier Marable, Dallas Hamrick,

Jeffrey Brown, Zuri Brown, Jordan Goode, Michael Thompson Jr. and Zayden Mintz. The 8U team will play #2 West Carolina Ducks in the semifinals.

The 10U Junior Varsity Trailblazers suffered a tough 20-0 loss to the Carolina Bears from Cabarrus County. The 10U team finished the season fifth in their division.

The 12U Varsity Trailblazers got an early 45 yard touchdown run from Cayden Smith to take the lead 8-0 against the East Lincoln Mustangs. East Lincoln would score in the fourth quarter but the Elite’s A’mon Parker got a big hit on the opposing quarterback and Javen Wilson intercepted the pass to stop the conversion. An interception by Braylon Brown later in

the quarter and some good hard-nosed running by Kavion Byers helped the Trailblazers seal the 8-6 victory. Smith, Tyvegas Goode Jr., Zykeem Hamrick, Jace Currence, Westley Barnes and Desmond Nolan also helped anchor the KM defense. The Trailblazers will play the Iredell Bandits in the semifinals.

The schedule for Saturday, Nov. 12 is:

10:15 a.m. – 6U Division, #2 KM Elite vs. #3 Cramerton Panthers.

11:30 a.m. – 12U Division, #2 KM Elite vs. #3 Iredell Bandits.

12:45 p.m. – 8U Division, #2 West Carolina Ducks vs. #4 KM Elite.

The winner of each game will advance to the BSYFL championship game.

Dear Savvy Senior, I’ve read that retirees will be getting a nice cost-of-living increase in our Social Security benefits next year but what about Medicare? What will our Medicare Part B monthly premiums and other Medicare costs be in 2023?

Planning Ahead

Dear Planning, From an entitlement program standpoint, 2023 is going to be a very good year for retirees! Not only will you receive a nice 8.7 percent cost-of-living increase in your Social Security retirement benefits – the largest since 1981 – the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services also recently announced that your Medicare Part B standard monthly premium will be lowered 3 percent ($5.20) from the current rate of $170.10 per month, to $164.90/month in 2023.

The reason for the reduction is a correction to last year’s hefty Part B premium increase, which was larger than it needed to be. The 2022 premium hike of about 14.5 percent was announced amid uncertainty about the potential impact of a new Alzheimer’s drug called Aduhelm, which threatened to explode Medicare costs. That

didn’t happen. The cost of the drug was cut roughly in half from an original $56,000 a year and Medicare sharply limited coverage. This created a large financial reserve for Part B, allowing the program to reduce next year’s premium.

You’ll also be happy to know that in addition to the premium reduction, the annual deductible for Medicare Part B will also be lowered $7 from $233 in 2022, to $226 in 2023. And if you have a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan, the average premium in 2023 will be about $31.50, which is a 1.8 percent decrease from $32.08 in 2022.

But the news isn’t all rosy. The deductible for Medicare Part A (hospital coverage) per benefit period (which generally starts when you are admitted to the hospital) will be $1,600 in 2023, up $44 from this year’s $1,556. That applies to the first 60 days of inpatient care. For the 61st through 90th day, the coinsurance will be $400 per day, up from $389 this year. And for days 91 to 150, the charge will be $800 per day (up from $778 in 2022).

And the skilled nursing facility coinsurance for days 21-100 will also increase to

$200 per day, up from $194.50 in 2022.

Wealthy Beneficiary Breaks

High earning Medicare beneficiaries, which makes up about 7 percent of all Medicare recipients, will also receive a break in 2023. Medicare surcharges for high earners are based on adjusted gross income from two years earlier, which means that 2023 Part B premiums are determined by 2021 annual income.

So, if your 2021 income was above $97,000 up to $123,000 ($194,000 up to $246,000 for married couples filing jointly), your 2023 Part B monthly premium will be $230.80, down from $238.10 in 2022.

Monthly premiums for singles with an income between $123,000 and $153,000 ($246,000 and $306,000 for joint filers) will decrease from $340.20 to $329.70 in 2023.

Individuals earning above $153,000 up to $183,000 ($306,000 to $366,000 for joint filers) will see their monthly premium decrease from $442.30 to $428.60 in 2023.

Those with incomes above $183,000 up to $500,000 ($366,000 to $750,000 for joint

filers), your 2023 Part B premium will be $527.50, down form $544.30 in 2022.

And single filers with income of $500,000 or more ($750,000 or more for joint filers) will pay $560.50 per month next year, versus this year’s premium of $578.30.

High-income beneficiaries with a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan will also pay a little less next year. If your income was over $97,000 ($194,000 for joint filers) you’ll pay a $12.20 to $76.40 monthly surcharge on top of your regular Part D premiums based on your income level.
