Community Worship Services

The ministers of the Kings Mountain Ministerial Association have planned to lead in several community services in the coming weeks prior to the celebration of our Lord’s glorious Resurrection on that first Easter morning. However, before the Resurrection of our Lord, there was the Cross in which our Lord gave Himself for our redemption. Therefore, the ministers have entitled this series of services “Journey to the Cross” focusing on

the question “Were You There?”

The services will be held on Wednesdays at 12 noon in several of your local churches. Because of the continual existence of covid in our area, there will be no fellowship meals following the services.

The first service will be on Wednesday, February 22, at Central United Methodist Church at 12 noon.

Rioting bill passes in NC House

In a bipartisan vote on February 8, the North Carolina House overwhelmingly approved HB 40, “Prevent Rioting and Civil Disorder” in a vote of 7642. Sponsors of the bill are Republicans Tim Moore, John Sauls, and Charles Miller. Democrat Shelly Willingham also sponsored.

House Speaker Tim Moore said, “This common-sense bill increases penalties for inciting deadly and dangerous riots to deter bad actors in otherwise peaceful protests. Our first amendment right to free speech is not an endorsement of violence, looting, or causing bodily harm to another person.”

He continued, “We must do a better job of supporting our law enforcement officers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe. It’s time to take a stand for the rule of law and the safety of our neighbors and business owners.”

In September 2021, a similar bill was passed by both the General Assembly. However, it was vetoed by Governor Roy Cooper.

After the mid-term elections in 2022, Republicans gained more power, failing a supermajority by one vote in the House. The NC Supreme Court also has a 5-2 Republican majority.

It is feared that Republicans are positioning themselves to challenge the veto power of Governor Cooper. While Republican’s don’t have a vetoproof majority, they are only one vote away, making attendance by Senators and Representatives crucial for both parties.

Kings Mountain Little Theatre, Inc. was pleased to host the groundbreaking for the next major project for the Joy Performance Center and the Liberty Mountain Garden at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, February 10, at the Joy Theater, 202 South Railroad Avenue in Kings Mountain. KMLT President Mary Grace Keller joined Lead Donors Gilbert and Jancy Patrick, Speaker

Tim Moore, Senator Ted Alexander, and David Stone – Foothills Historic Conservation, Inc. in a traditional gold shovel ceremony in the Liberty Mountain Garden. A reception in the lobby followed the ceremony in the Joy Theater with refreshments from Iris Hubbard and 133 Cafe. President Keller welcomed the group of about 40 to the event and recog-

nized dignitaries including the Patricks, Speaker Moore, Senator Alexander, and several KM city council members. She thanked the Patricks for their generosity and guidance with the esthetics for the project. Major Contributor John Harris (Harris Funeral Home) also helped Architect Ken Pflieger and the KMLT Building Committee design the restored and enhanced art deco/

mid-century modern elements of the project.

Ms. Keller gave special recognition to Speaker Moore, Senator Alexander, and Representative Kelly Hastings for their successful efforts to bring significant North Carolina state grant funds to the project. Speaker Moore spoke briefly about the importance of the project for Kings Mountain and See KMLT, Page 5A

More objects shot down over US and Canada

Three objects were shot down over the US and Canada last week. On Sunday, February 12, an object was flying at 20,000 feet over Lake Huron when it was spotted. On Saturday, the North American Aerospace Defense Command said it detected a "radar anomaly" over Havre, Montana, after an aircraft investigation of radar hits failed to locate an object matching the hits.

The Department of Defense believes this to be the same object. Gen. Ryder said, officials could "reasonably" link the object downed that afternoon to the radar signal picked up over Montana based on its flight path and data.

The Canadian incident occurred on Saturday, February 11. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a Tweet, “I ordered the take down of an unidentified See SHOT DOWN, Page 5A

Schiele Museum presents 23rd Annual Fossil Fair

Visitors are invited to travel back in time at the 23rd Annual Fossil Fair at The Schiele Museum of Natural History to discover the ancient stories that fossils, rocks, and minerals tell. The festivities will take place on Saturday, February 25, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For the price of museum admission plus $3.00, participants can enjoy a full day of fun and fossils at The Schiele. Those who attend can search for North Carolina fossils, meet live animals, mine for gemstones, find or buy their own fossils to take home, and learn all about prehistoric life

through hands-on learning activities.

For rock collectors, gemstone enthusiasts, or fossil hunters, the museum will have experts on hand to identify, educate, and sell geodes, fossils, rocks, jewelry, and more. Geologists will be on-site to help beginners mine for their own gemstones and learn more about their finds. There will also be family-friendly scavenger hunts, fossil digs, crafts, and a special planetarium lineup featuring the show, “Fossils in Space”. Museum Program Specialist Nathan Chapman says, “Fossils are full of

mysteries! They hint at animals and an alien Earth we can hardly imagine. By investigating fossils, we can learn about the Earth’s past and better understand the world we live in today.

At Fossil Fair, visitors can see, touch, and examine these treasures that have been buried for millions of years, and learn more about the history that they hold.”

For more information about Fossil Fair and The Schiele Museum, visit schielemuseum.org. The Schiele Museum is located at 1500 E Garrison Blvd. in Gastonia.

With this project, we take a huge step in our presence in downtown Kings Mountain and in our amenities and comfort for our patrons. Our fundraising goal is ambitious, but current 5-year pledges have us at about the 70% level. I’m certain there are other businesses and pri-

to draw patrons from our campus, our local community, our county and beyond. Bring a chair, some dancing shoes, and a big appetite!”

The community will enjoy a variety of musical talent on the stage set up near the intersection of Main Street and College Avenue. The bands will play a variety, featuring alt-rock, pop and Americana, country and ’80s icons.

Bands performing include:

object that violated Canadian airspace. NORAD Command shot down the object over the Yukon. Canadian and U.S. aircraft were scrambled, and a U.S. F-22 successfully fired at the object. he ordered the takedown of an "unidentified object" flying over Canada's Yukon territory on Saturday.”

Anita Anand, Canada’s Defense Minister, said the downed object was cylindrical in shape and flying at about 40,000 feet. She said it was downed in central Yukon, about 100 miles from a U.S.-Canada border.

On Thursday, Feb. 9, North American Aerospace Defense Command detected an object using ground radar and sent aircraft to identify

the United Kingdom. Webbstock is an accessible event for guests with

the object. It was shot down on February 10.

"The object was flying at an altitude of 40,000 feet and posed a reasonable threat to the safety of civilian flight," Ryder said. President Joe Biden ordered Northern Command to shoot down the object. Civilian airliners typically fly between 40,000 and 45,000 feet.

The object fell onto sea ice off the coast of Alaska and U.S. Northern Command has begun recovery operations, Ryder said. "U.S. Northern Command's Alaska Command coordinated the operation with assistance from the Alaska Air National Guard, Federal Aviation Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation," he said.

The object was about the size of a small car, the general said, and does not resemble in any way the Chinese surveil-

Two F-22s flying out of Joint Base Elmendorf in Alaska, took down the object. The one missile shot was an AIM-9X Sidewinder. "We have HC-130, HH-60 and CH-47 aircraft participating in that recovery," the press secretary said.

During the briefing, Gen. Ryder commented as to the origin of the object shot down, “So in terms of this object, again, as I highlighted, we don't know where it's from. It posed a reasonable threat to civilian air traffic and so the determination was made to take it down.”

Watch Your Eyes

I recently had my annual physical. To be sure, I may be slower and not as strong as I once was, but I was given a clean bill of health and passed all of the exams. The only persistent problem I have, however, is the eye exam. The nurse conducts the exam and records the results. Admittedly, reading all of those letters from across the room

has become less of an eye exam and more of a guessing game. Fortunately, contacts and corrective lenses make the blurry letters clear. As I waited on the doctor, I couldn’t help but contrast the eye exam to the Christian life.

What we look at and concentrate on affects our Christian eyes. In fact, when we focus our gaze on things of this world and the troubles of life, our vision of Christ becomes blurry and distorted. The old children’s church song warns us, Oh, be careful little eyes, what you see. Oh, be careful little eyes, what you see.

For the Father up above is looking down with love, oh be careful little eyes what you see. I am sure you have heard the expression, “Eyes are the window to the Soul.” Though the origin of this exact phrase is unknown, the Bible can give us a more detailed explanation of what this phrase means. Matthew 6:22-23 explains that “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is

that darkness!”

It’s time for your spiritual eye exam. What are you using your eyes for, and how is it impacting your soul? Do you struggle with looking at inappropriate pictures or watching crass movies? Confess it to the Lord and seek an accountability partner or pastor. Are you so focused on the turmoil and hatred in this world that your soul is downcast and God seems distant? Come rest in God and focus on His word. God has given us an incredible gift, the Holy Bible. Use your eyes to read the scripture and allow God to focus your attention

back to Him. I leave you with the first verse and refrain of one of my favorite hymns. I hope this will encourage you to turn your eyes upon Jesus this week.

O soul, are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There’s light for a look at the Savior, and life more abundant and free. Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim In the light of His glory and grace.

War & Memory: A Commemoration of Remembrance

Kings Mountain Historical Museum invites the public to mark their calendars for Tuesday, February 21, at 10 a.m., for their upcoming exhibit opening, War & Memory: A Commemoration of Remembrance.

This exhibit is an introduction to “Decoration Day” and its roots within the African American Community to honor and remember Union Soldiers after the Civil War, how it evolved during World War I to expand to honor all American war fatalities, becoming a Federal Holiday, and being declared as “Memorial Day” later after World War II.

This exhibit features Civil War, WWI and WWII artifacts and ephemera on display in remembrance of residents of Cleveland

County in honor of Memorial Day in 2023.

Kings Mountain Historical Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and the exhibit runs through June 3.

Kalashja will be on hand to sign copies of her first book "To the Mountains We Go! She wrote this book to inspire young children to not let their age get in the way of things they want to do. The book is written for children 5 to 10 years old. The story is centered around Lay, an adventurous young girl excited about her first trip to the mountains. She asks readers to follow her on her trip and see the amazing things found in the mountains. Lay goes camping, hiking, and fishing. At the end of her journey, she is sad, but proposes the moral of the story that "your destination stops when you do". Meaning there is always another adventure to seek out. It's all up to you to make it happen.

Lay will soon be on her next adventure "To the Beach We Go!", as Kalashja plans a second book to continue the series. Readers will follow Lay as she travels to the beach, exploring all the fun and exciting things to do there.

Kalashja, a student at Kings Mountain Middle School, was inspired by her aunt Cynthia Stitt, herself an author. Stitt helped her niece with the process of publishing and getting her book on Amazon to sell. She was also encouraged by her parents Barbara and Trent Dillard as she worked to reach her goal of writing a book.

"To the Mountains We Go!" will be available to purchase for $10 and have Kalashja to sign this Fri-

day afternoon from 1-4 pm at Southern Arts Society in Kings Mountain. Southern Arts Society Giftshop and Gallery is located at 301 N. Piedmont Ave., on the corner of Battleground and Piedmont. Gallery Hours are Tues-Fri from 10am to 3pm. For more information call 704-739-5585 or visit http://southernartssociety. org/.

Miss Burke selected first, second and third place prizes along with three Merit Awards. First Place went to Alex Pietersen for his mixed media work “Paradise”. This is primarily a wood sculpture of a small cabin, with a pond, bench and picnic table.

Miss Burke commented “I really appreciated this three-dimensional approach. There is a distinct authenticity to this work that speaks to the artist and their idea of paradise. The quality and craft in both the cabin and the rendering of the tree created focal points that elevated the piece.”

Second Place went to Lori McAdams for her scratchboard piece “Archimedean Solid”. Miss Burke said “Scratchboard is an unforgiving medium, but when used well, it creates a strong value language and drama of light. The use of mark-making to create the illusion of depth worked well in this central approach to composition.”

Third Place was given to Mari Matamoros for her acrylic “Mini Abstract #4”.

Miss Burke commented that “The compositional choices were really strong use of asymmetrical balance and directional movement especially. The mix of texture, mark-making and shape design worked well together to create a compelling formal arrangement.”

Merit Awards were given to Deanna Basnett for her watercolor “Arizona I”, Denesha Sweat for her mixed media piece “Getting Past the Stings”, and to Ron Shepard for his pastel “Faux Christmas.”

Winners and more photos of the artwork in the exhibit can be found on Southern Arts Society’s website and Facebook page. The exhibit is on view in person through February 24, 2023. Artwork in the exhibit is available for sale. The purchase of smaller artwork is a great way to begin a collection more affordably, fit into your space and still support local artists.

Mountaineers fall to Crest 58-50, await 3A playoff seeding Saturday

South Point, which won its final eight conference games, claimed the championship with an 11-3 mark.

The Chargers looked very much like a team that’s ready to make a big run in the state playoffs. After a close game for a half in which KM led 13-10 after one quarter and 24-23 at the break, the visitors took command in the second half.

Crest went on top 25-24 in the first minute; of the third period and was up 29-24 after two minutes of play. KM was able to get within 31-27 after a free throw by Tucker Robinette with 4:48 left and within two, 33-31, following an old-fashioned three-point play by Curtis Simpson with 2:37 left.

Two Robinette free throws cut the difference to 55-50 with 1:55 remaining but Crest was playing the clock and forced the Mountaineers to begin fouling with 45 seconds remaining. They went 3-for-3 at the line and got a steal and lay-in just before the final buzzer to account for the final margin. Simpson led the Mountaineers with 16 points, most of them coming with excellent moves inside. Bradley Floyd added 12 and Robinette 11. Bryson Brown scored four, Ja’Qualyn Sanders four and Zay Smith three.

Kings Mountain’s women kept their game close in the first half before Crest turned it on in the second half for a 49-32 win. For Crest, the win meant a tie for third place with Ashbrook in the BSC while KM finished sixth out of eight teams with a 4-10 conference and 10-14 overall record.

put the win in the bag.

She led the KM scoring with 15 points but everyone else finished in single digits. Bell scored seven points and also did a good job rebounding. Alayna Patrick scored seven points and Khalia King and Austyn

Dixon two apiece.

FDA warns not to use EzriCare Artificial Tears

FDA warns consumers and health care practitioners not to purchase and immediately stop using EzriCare Artificial Tears or Delsam Pharma’s Artificial Tears due to potential bacterial contamination. Using contaminated artificial tears increases risk of eye infections that could result in blindness or death. Patients who have signs or symptoms of an eye infection should talk to their health care provider or seek medical care immediately.

These are over-thecounter products, manufactured by Global Pharma Healthcare Private Limited, intended to be sterile.

Global Pharma initiated a voluntary recall at the consumer level of all unexpired lots of EzriCare Artificial Tears and Delsam Pharma’s Artificial Tears. FDA recommended this recall due to the company’s current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) violations, including lack of appropriate microbial testing, formulation issues (the company manu-

factures and distributes ophthalmic drugs in multi-use bottles, without an adequate preservative), and lack of proper controls concerning tamper-evident packaging.

FDA is collaborating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health departments to investigate a multistate outbreak involving a rare, extensively drug-resistant strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria. As of January 31, 2023, CDC identified 55 patients in 12 states with infections that have been linked by epidemiologic and laboratory evidence to use of EzriCare Artificial Tears. Associated adverse events include hospitalization, one death with bloodstream infection, and permanent vision loss from eye infections. CDC issued an alert recommending consumers stop using EzriCare Artificial Tears pending additional guidance from CDC and FDA.

FDA also placed Global

Pharma Healthcare Private Limited on import alert for providing an inadequate response to a records request and for not complying with CGMP requirements. The import alert prevents these products from entering the United States. FDA encourages health care professionals and patients to report adverse events or quality problems with any medicine to FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program:

• Complete and submit the report online at www. fda.gov/medwatch/report. htm; or

• Download and complete the form, then submit it via fax at 1-800-FDA0178.

• Consumers may also report adverse reactions by contacting FDA’s Consumer Complaint Coordinators.

Some Kia and Hyundai vehicles targeted for theft across US

Thieves inspired by social media are stealing certain models of Kias and Hyundais with a simple phone-charging cable. The vehicles in question are 2011 – 2021 models that use a key to start the vehicle. According to an article by Forbes published in October, ”Cars from 2021 and earlier are being targeted,

especially in the Midwest in cities like Milwaukee and St. Louis, because of a missing steering wheel component that makes it easy to drive off with a simple hack.”

The article goes on to state, “For many owners (mostly affected are Kia vehicles from 2011 to 2021 that use a key to start the car and Hyundai vehicles from 2016 to 2021: Accent, Elantra, Elantra GT,

FDA recalls Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental

Nestlé Purina PetCare Company is voluntarily recalling select lots of Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental (PPVD EL) prescription dry dog food due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs; however, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure. Vitamin D toxicity may include vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, and excessive drooling to renal (kidney) dysfunction. No other Purina pet care products are affected.

Purina is taking this action after receiving two contacts about two separate confirmed cases of a dog exhibiting signs of vitamin D toxicity after consuming the diet, to date. Once taken off the diet, each of these dogs recovered.

The affected dry dog food was distributed throughout the United States by prescription only through veterinary clinics, Purina Vet Direct, Purina for Professionals, and other

select retailers with the ability to validate a prescription.

Bags of PPVD EL with the UPC Code and Production Code below should be immediately discarded.

Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental (PPVD EL) 8 lb. and 20 lb. bags, UPC Code: 38100 19190 in 8 lb. and 38100 19192 in 20 lb. The first 8 characters of the Production Codes include: 2249 1082, 2250 1082, 2276 1082, 2277 1082, 2290 1082, 2360 1082, or 2361 1082.

Sonata, Veloster, Venue, Kona, Tucson, Santa Fe, Santa Fe Sport, Santa Fe XL and Palisade) it’s gotten so bad that Hyundai and Kia have stepped in with a solution.”

Videos on TikTok and other social media platforms were inspired by Milwaukee’s “Kia Boys,” who demonstrate in a TikTok Challenge how easy it is to steal a Kia or Hyundai, using step-by-step instruc-

tions. The video was still online last weekend.

According to an article in the Washington Post on January 19, Prince George’s County police said 617 Hyundai and Kia vehicles were stolen in 2022. Already in 2023, at least 108 have been stolen, nearly 18 percent of the total from the prior year.

There is concern that,

due to the vulnerability of these models, it is possible owners could experience insurance increases, and that the resale value of the vehicles could be impacted and affect the owner’s ability to use the cars in a trade.

If you own a 2011-2021 Kia or Hyundai, check with your carmaker to find out whether your vehicle is at a higher risk for car theft and

Pet owners who purchased bags of the product listed above are asked to immediately stop feeding and throw it away in a container where no other animals, including wildlife, can get to it. If signs such as weight loss, excessive drooling, vomiting, loss of appetite or increased thirst or urination have occurred in their dog while eating this diet, pet owners should contact their veterinarian.

Veterinary and other retail partners should remove and destroy the affected product from their inventory.

Purina apologized to pet owners and veterinarians for any concerns or inconvenience this situation has caused, sharing, “As pet experts and pet owners ourselves, the health and well-being of pets is our top priority.”

Contact Purina directly, Monday - Saturday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. CST at 1-800-3455678 or via email at https:// www.purina.com/contactus for questions or assistance in getting a refund.

what the manufacturer will do to help.

• Kia owners can call customer assistance at 1-800-333-4542.

• Hyundai owners should call 800-633-5151.

At the least, owners have been advised to remove all USB cables from their vehicles and to park in a well-lighted area.

How Much Do You Have to Make to File Taxes?

Dear Savvy Senior,

What are the IRS income tax filing requirements for retirees this tax season?

My income dropped way down when I retired in 2022, so I’m wondering if I need to even file a tax return this year.

Recently Retired

Dear Recently,

Whether or not you are required to file a federal income tax return this year will depend on how much you earned last year, as well as the source of the income, your age and filing status.

Here’s a rundown of this tax season’s IRS tax filing requirement thresholds. For most people, this is pretty straightforward. If your 2022 gross income –which includes all taxable income, not counting your Social Security benefits, unless you are married and filing separately – was below the threshold for your filing status and age, you may not have to file. But if it’s over, you will.

• Single: $12,950 ($14,700 if you’re 65 or older by Jan. 1, 2022).

• Married filing jointly: $25,900 ($27,300 if you or your spouse is 65 or older; or $28,700 if you’re both over

65).

• Married filing separately: $5 at any age.

• Head of household: $19,400 ($21,150 if 65 or older).

• Qualifying widow(er) with dependent child: $25,900 ($27,300 if 65 or older).

To get a detailed breakdown on federal filing requirements, along with information on taxable and nontaxable income, call the IRS at 800-829-3676 and ask them to mail you a free copy of the “1040 and 1040-SR Instructions for Tax Year 2022,” or you can see it online at IRS.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040gi.pdf.

Check Here Too

Be aware that there are other financial situations that can require you to file a tax return, even if your gross income falls below the IRS filing requirements.

For example, if you earned more than $400 from self-employment in 2022, owe any special taxes like an alternative minimum tax, or get premium tax credits because you, your spouse or a dependent is enrolled in a Health Insurance Marketplace plan, you’ll need to file.

You’ll also need to file if you’re receiving Social Security benefits, and onehalf of your benefits plus your other gross income and any tax-exempt interest exceeds $25,000, or $32,000 if you’re married and filing jointly.

To figure all this out, the IRS offers an online tax tool that asks a series of questions that will help you determine if you’re required to file, or if you should file because you’re due a refund. It takes less than 15 minutes to complete.

You can access this tool at IRS.gov/ Help/ITA – click on “Do I Need to File a Tax Return?” Or you can get assistance over the phone by calling the IRS helpline at 800-829-1040.

Check Your State

Even if you’re not required to file a federal tax return this year, don’t assume that you’re also excused from filing state income taxes. The rules for your state might be very different. Check with your state tax agency before concluding that you’re entirely in the clear. For links to state tax agencies see Taxadmin.org/state-tax-agencies.

Tax Preparation Help

If you find that you do need to file a tax return this year, you can free file through the IRS at IRS.gov/FreeFile if your 2022 adjusted gross income was below $73,000.
