Brown continued, “I am very proud of what we brought to our small town of Kings Mountain. Many local

businesses have thanked me for bringing tourists to the area because their restaurants and gas stations have flourished but it is unlikely there will ever be another Drive-in theater or campground in this county.”

He concluded the post thanking his wife, Holly, and his father Mike Brown for their support, sharing that after the birth of his son Corbin, he wants to spend more time with his family.

Better Business Bureau of Southern Piedmont and Western North Carolina released its 2022 annual report on February 9, detailing consumer activity related to businesses located in the BBB’s 37-county service area. This report includes statistics on consumer complaints, verified customer reviews and the top five scams.

Consumer Complaints:

In 2022, consumers filed a record 24,000+ complaints against area businesses, showing a 6.5% increase from 2021. “Over the last year we’ve worked to make the consumer experience when filing a complaint seamless. We’ve updated our forms and made it very

easy for consumers to differentiate between whether they’re looking to file a complaint or leave a review,” said BBB of Southern Piedmont and Western North Carolina President, Tom Bartholomy. In spite of the large number of complaints filed, the BBB was still able to resolve 93% of all complaints submitted. Verified Customer Reviews: Additionally in 2022, customers submitted more than 21,000 verified reviews about businesses, showing an 11% increase from 2021. “Customer reviews continue to be on the rise,” said Bartholomy. “Potential customers always want to know what third parties say about a business

they're considering working with, and the BBB is a great resource for that. We also know how valuable these reviews are and continue to encourage businesses to ask their customers to leave them reviews on BBB.org.”

The Top 5 Scams reported to the BBB in 2022 were:

• Online Purchase/ Counterfeit Products

• Employment

• Phishing/Imposter Scams

• Tech Support

• Advance Fee Loan

Pieces of Kings Mountain History

I recently became interested in the Hord Mansion since its centennial is scheduled in April. The building has been used as a library all of my life, but it was once the home the family of Dr. Jacob George Van Buren Hord from 1923 until 1947.

Dr. Hord died in 1930 and had young children at the time. His wife and children occupied the home until after the mother’s death in 1940. In 1947, the property was gifted to the city of Kings Mountain as a memorial to Jacob Simri and Margaret Juletta Rudisill Mauney by their children for the expressed use as a library.

The following information comes from the application to place Jacob S. Mauney Memorial Library and Teacher’s Home on the National Historic Register. Haywood Lynch worked tirelessly from 1935 until 1947 to see that there was a library in Kings Mountain. He partnered with likeminded people to see that this happened. Other citizens joined in eventually laid the groundwork for Mauney Memorial Library. While I didn’t do this research, I thought it interesting enough to share the story using excerpts regarding how the library itself came to be, written in three parts. If you would like to read the entire application, it is online at https://files. nc.gov/ncdcr/nr/CL1457.

pdf. Using the power of the media, Lynch wrote article after article encouraging citizens to open a public library.

The genesis of the movement for a public library in Kings Mountain, the second such municipal library in Cleveland County, which has been known as the Mauney Memorial Library and located in its present location since 1947, lies in the efforts of Haywood Eugene Lynch (1909-1983).

Mr. Lynch, a native of Goldsboro, Wayne County, North Carolina, a graduate of Duke University, and a journalist formerly on the staff of the Goldsboro News-Argus, came to Kings Mountain in 1934. In that year he executed a lease arrangement for the operation of the Kings Mountain Herald, the town’s weekly newspaper, with Guilford Garfield Page (1883- 1949), its long-time owner and former editor.

Haywood Lynch oversaw publication of the first issue of the newspaper as its editor on 17 January 1935.

Six months later, on 18 July 1935, the sale of the Kings Mountain Herald to Mr. Lynch was announced on its front page under the headline, “Lynch Buys The Herald.” In the article’s opening paragraph Mr. Page acknowledged “Mr. Lynch expected from the first to buy the paper and business if after trying it out he liked the town and the prospects. He has been more than pleased with the fine patronage the people have given him and the

royal reception he and his family have received from the people.”

During the decade he owned and edited the newspaper, Haywood Lynch utilized his role as editor of the Kings Mountain Herald to encourage every effort for civic, social, and commercial improvement in Kings Mountain. This advocacy was especially important in the 1930s when he urged town leaders to seek and provide the necessary matching support for a series of projects funded through several Federal works programs including a new town hall, a high school gymnasium, a new post office, and important improvements to the transportation infrastructure.

Haywood Lynch had a well-placed colleague in the person of Josephine Ellerbe Weir (1899-1995), the wife of William Theodore Weir (1901-1978), a Kings Mountain grocer.

Mrs. Weir came to Kings Mountain in about 1921 as Josephine Ellerbe to teach English at Central School, Kings Mountain’s high school. After one year she relocated to Red Springs, North Carolina, and joined the English faculty at Flora McDonald College.

After three years she returned to Kings Mountain and taught for a year at East Elementary School before returning to Central School. In the early 1920s the Kings Mountain high school did not have a library: by her return in about 1926, a room is said to have been designated for library use. Mrs.

Looking Back

Weir had charge of the fledgling library, ordered books, and opened it for research and study when not in the classroom.

In 1938, after Central School was rebuilt to replace the earlier building that was lost to fire in 1932, Josephine Weir became its

full-time librarian and held that position until retiring from the local school system in 1968.

Mrs. Weir’s efforts in the 1920s and 1930s to provide study and library facilities for high school students in Kings Mountain nurtured their study and reading habits. They

also instilled a life-long respect for reading and research in many of her students who, along with other residents of Kings Mountain, supported Haywood Lynch’s call for a public library in 1935 and 1936. (To be continued on March 8)

bullying must stop, everyone must work together

School

Four New Jersey teenagers have been charged in connection with the attack of a 14-year-old girl who later took her own life after video of the incident was posted on social media. One juvenile is charged with aggravated assault, two juveniles are charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and one juvenile is charged with harassment, Ocean County prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer told CBS News in an email. (cbsnews.com)

Adriana Kuch, 14, was found dead in her Bayville home on Feb. 3, 2023, two days after the disturbing video of the attack at Central Regional High School was posted online. The video showed girls throwing a drink at the teen, then kicking and dragging her down school hallways. They pushed Adriana into red lockers lining the school hallways and one of the girls in a pink shirt punched Kuch repeatedly. (Source CBSNews.com)

When I was an elementary child riding the school bus, we had a few fights on the bus. One young man who didn’t live that far from me was constantly getting into fights on the school bus. One day he had a kid down repeatedly punching him in the face. The bus driver stopped the bus and escorted both

boys off the bus while still a couple of miles from their homes. We then drove off and left them on the road. I don’t recall seeing the fight continue as they now had to walk or hitchhike a ride to get home. Since the one boy was being beaten so bad, I don’t think the driver made the best decision since the other kid could have finished him off on the rural road we were traveling. However, it did appear the fight had stopped as we drove off. Most likely not having a bus audience, bleeding, and having to walk home changed the scenario.

In the 60s and 70s there were bad things that happened in schools that often got swept under the rug. With no social media kids usually ended up working it out or staying away from people we didn’t like. Often many of us never took our school problems home because our parents had enough problems without having to worry about our school fusses. Or, we were afraid we might get in trouble at home.

School children face challenges. There are ongoing pressures from bullies who must be corralled and disciplined, dismissed from school or in some cases put in a place where they can get rehabilitation and help for their psychotic issues. Locking a 14-year-old up in jail for years solves nothing. However, kids that bring about injury or death to another

student need mental help and rehabilitation before being freed to invoke pain on someone again. Most likely if your family has lost a family member to a bully you want the offender locked up for life.

Even though my school era was not a perfect world, schoolteachers and principals had authority to paddle us. They had authority to discipline us, suspend us from school and could put ‘bite’ with their ‘bark’. We knew the teachers ruled and we respected them. I can remember seeing paddling’s that I never wanted to get and I also received a couple myself.

No school has the ability to patrol every corner of a school facility. Bullying, fights and bad things typically occur in unsupervised spaces. Schools can’t hire enough security guards or have enough monitors to patrol ever corner.

Every day, in every state in America, a private school is starting or the ground work is being formulated.

Ten years from now almost every city and every small community in America will have a private or faith-based school. Some of these will only be elementary schools but many have or will develop junior and senior highs. Such schools are not free of their own issues but parents across America are desperate for safe places for their kids. Parents want a place where there is zero tolerance of bullies and an administration who means

NC has forecasted one-time $3.25 billion surplus in state revenues

Economists in the Office of State Budget and Management and the General Assembly’s Fiscal Research Division released an updated consensus revenue forecast today anticipating an additional $3.25 billion in state revenues for FY 2022-23, putting total state General Fund revenue collections at $33.76 billion.

“These increased funds are needed desperately to pay our teachers more, fund our schools, provide quality child care for parents in our workforce, and to pay for the tax cuts for working families that we put in place last year,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “I hope we can negotiate a bipartisan budget that makes these investments without more tax breaks for the wealthiest among us.”

The revised consensus forecast for FY 2022-23 anticipates overcollections of $3.25B (10.7%) relative to certified revenues of $30.51B, putting total state General Fund revenue collections at $33.76B. The revised forecast anticipates a total of $67.35 billion for the next biennium, with $33.71 billion in FY 202324 and $33.65 billion in FY 2024-45.

NC newborns now screened for two more disorders

Babies born in North Carolina will now be screened for two additional disorders, along with the other disorders screened for by the NC Department of Health and Human Services’ Newborn Screening Program. Newborns will now be screened for two Lysosomal Storage Disorders: — Mucopolysaccharidosis Type I (MPS I) and Pompe Disease.

“Newborn screening is critical for early detection and treatment of many genetic and biochemical disorders in the first few days and weeks after birth,” said Dr. Scott Shone, Director of the State Laboratory of Public Health at NCDHHS. “Before leaving the hospital, a few drops of the baby’s blood are collected on a special filter paper card and sent to the State Laboratory to help identify babies who may be at increased risk for certain health problems as early as possible.”

Each year, more than 200 babies in North Carolina are identified with genetic or biochemical disorders through newborn screening. Studies have shown the importance of early identification and treatment which can be lifesaving for the most severe cases. Expanding this public health service in North Carolina provides newborns and their families with an opportunity for better outcomes and an improved quality of life, and is one of several efforts to further the department’s priority to support child and family well-being.

“Newborn screening is America’s most successful public health program, offering babies with life-threatening and debilitating diseases the opportunity for therapeutic intervention at the earliest possible time,” said Sharon King, member of the North Carolina Advisory Council on Rare Diseases. “I applaud the NC New-

born Screening Program for the addition of MPS I and Pompe disease to the state’s newborn screening panel ensuring a better quality of life for these babies and their families.”

MPS I affects many parts of the body including the brain, heart, liver, eyes and respiratory system. Like many newborn screening conditions, there are often no signs or symptoms of the condition at birth. Severe MPS I is found in approximately 1 in 100,000 individuals. If untreated, symptoms may include developmental delays, skeletal deformities, impacts to motor skills and respiratory tract infections.

Pompe disease also varies in severity and symptoms. Types of Pompe Disease include infantile-onset and late-onset. Babies affected with Infantile-onset Pompe Disease (IOPD) demonstrate poor muscle development, muscle weakness, impacts to liver development, heart defects and a failure to thrive. IOPD may be fatal if patients do not receive treatment.

The addition of MPS I and Pompe Disease screening is an expansion in newborn screening services provided in North Carolina. The Newborn Screening Program previously added Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) in 2021 and X-Linked Adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) in 2022. North Carolina joins a growing number of states now screening newborns for MPS I and Pompe Disease.

“The National MPS Society commends the NC Newborn Screening Program for the addition of MPS I and Pompe disease to the state’s newborn screening panel,” said Terri Klein, President and CEO of the National MPS Society. “The Society is located in Durham and now we can champion our own state with

The primary drivers of the anticipated surplus are smaller-than-expected decline in individual income tax collections, especially due to larger-than-expected tax payments from passthrough businesses electing to be taxed at the entity level; persistently high corporate profits, particularly among large multi-national corporations; resilient consumer spending despite longer-lasting inflation in goods and services subject to sales tax; and higher-than-expected investment returns on the General Fund balance.

Of the forecasted onetime $3.25 billion surplus, House Speaker Tim Moore said, "The surplus projected in today's consensus revenue forecast demonstrates the economic strength of our state, which has attracted both businesses and families to North Carolina." He continued, "I am confident that as we continue to address some of the state's most pressing needs, we will continue doing so in a fiscally responsible way that leads to even more growth for North Carolina. This is the approach we will take as we consider our budget priorities of targeted raises for law enforcement and other key personnel, greater investments in infrastructure, and workforce development initiatives."

Additional $7.7 million in mental health services for NC college students

Governor Roy Cooper announced $7.7 million in new funding to support North Carolina’s postsecondary institutions in providing additional mental health services to students.

This investment in the University of North Carolina (UNC) System will support new mental health initiatives and provide funding to sustain initiatives created by Governor Cooper’s previous $5 million grant to the UNC System in May 2021.

“Identifying their mental distress and getting them access to quality treatment is more critical for our students than ever,” Governor Cooper said. “This investment will help our state’s colleges and universities better support their students so they can thrive.”

The UNC System will collaborate with the North Carolina Community College System and the state’s independent colleges and universities to offer suicide prevention training to faculty and staff across all three education systems. These trainings will provide faculty and staff with the tools they need to better identify and support students in crisis.

The UNC System will also use this funding to continue to provide students across all 17 UNC institutions access to an after-hours mental health hotline and develop a new resiliency training program for faculty, staff, and students.

With the initial $5 million investment in 2021, the UNC

this essential decision. We are grateful for our legislators, NCDHHS and the tireless advocates who championed this outcome for the past five years.”

“This is such fantastic news for the rare disease community,” said Tara J. Britt, Founder and President of Rare Disease Innovations Institute Inc. “Newborn Screening saves lives and we are so thrilled that

System launched a Mental Health First Aid training initiative to help college and university faculty and staff identify, understand and respond to mental health and substance abuse disorders. As of November 2022, the UNC System had trained 274 Mental Health First Aid instructors across the UNC System, the NC Community College System, and the state’s independent colleges and universities. Those trained instructors have, in turn, trained nearly 2,500 faculty and staff across their campuses.

“There has been a troubling rise in mental health challenges for young people across our nation, and we’re seeing the impact here in North Carolina,” said UNC System President Peter Hans. “We need to meet that need with urgency and compassion, and these funds go a long way in helping us reach students who are struggling.”

In addition to these investments in mental health supports in postsecondary education, the Governor previously invested $5 million in GEER funds to the NC Department of Health and Human Services to support Youth Mental Health First Aid training for adults who work with youth ages 12-18, including teachers and school staff. Governor Cooper also invested $40 million in GEER funds in August 2020 to K-12 public schools to help schools address students’ physical and mental health needs during the pandemic.

Funding for these initiatives is from federal Emergency Assistance for Non-Public Schools (EANS) funds that have reverted to the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) fund.

NBS is a priority in North Carolina.”

The NCDHHS Newborn Screening Follow-up Program in the Division of Child and Family Wellbeing and in partnership with the UNC Division of Genetics & Metabolism ensures babies identified with abnormal newborn screening results receive follow-up care and referrals to the appropriate medical specialists.

Watch Your Heart

I have a heart problem. No, not a physical issue but a spiritual heart problem. It’s a condition that’s plagued me my entire life and will not be ultimately cured until heaven. To be sure, Christ saved me and transformed me (and all who believe in him). There is, however, the matter of free will. You and I choose what to put into

our hearts just as much as we have a choice on what to eat. Last week I mentioned the quote, “the eyes are the window to your soul.” Today, let us look at the heart and the warnings God gives us. Proverbs 4:23 warns us, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” King 9Solomon wisely asserts that we must protect our hearts by filtering what goes into them. The phrase “garbage in, garbage out” holds true. What we take in our heart affects our actions and lives. The simple children’s song gives us a warning. A sampling

of lyrics includes:

Oh, be careful little ears what you hear, Oh be careful little eyes what you see, Oh be careful little tongue what you say, Oh be careful little hands what you do, Oh be careful little feet where you go. For the father up above is looking down in love, oh be careful...

Similarly, when we fill our hearts with the things of this world, it builds a barricade between God and us. In Matthew 13:15, we find, “For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise, they

might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.”

Are today’s culture and society any different? So then, how do we guard our hearts? We must die daily to ourselves and surrender to Christ’s will and way. A daily walk and relationship with God will keep our hearts protected. Until we put Christ on our heart’s throne, we will never fully experience what Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8. Finally, prayer changes our hearts. We have incredible access to

God through prayer, and the Apostle Paul reminds us that “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:7.

I leave you today with the last verse of the familiar hymn. Take My Life and Let It Be.

“Take my will and make it Thine, it shall be no longer mine; Take my heart, it is Thine own, It shall be Thy royal throne, It shall be Thy royal throne.”

Hord Mansion to celebrate 100th anniversary in April

The centennial celebration of the Hord Mansion, which houses Mauney Memorial Library at 100 South Piedmont Avenue in Kings Mountain, is planned for Wednesday, April 12, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The library has worked dil-

igently to collect pictures, memorabilia, and ephemera of the Hord Mansion for research and planning of this event.

Dr. Jacob George Van Buren Hord built the mansion in 1923. It was donated to the city of Kings Mountain for use as a library by the children of Jacob S. and Margaret Juletta Mauney in 1947. From 1947 to about 1962–1963, the building also functioned as a teacherage for the Kings Mountain school system.

The Hord Mansion is a two-story, five bay, yellow-brick Southern Colonial Revival-style house. The front facade features a two-story, pedimented tetrastyle portico with stucco-finished masonry columns.

The Herald will share more information on the centennial celebration as plans become available.

Rotary welcomes Liz Ingram

The Kings Mountain Rotary Club welcomed Lizzie Ingram as their guest speaker on February 16. Lizzie is an eighth grader at Kings Mountain Middle School and the daughter of Rotarian and local barber, Paul Ingram.

Lizzie started taking pictures in fourth grade and her skill has grown as well as her confidence over the last four years. She works alongside Gary Smart and Gary Stewart taking pictures for school events as well as private parties and other functions.

Lizzie has over 1000 volunteer hours and was recently offered an apprenticeship to work with the Carolina Panthers, however she turned it down to focus on her future and what she wants to do for a career. If you’re at a school sports event, you can find her on the sidelines somewhere capturing all the school’s special moments.

Gaston College and CaroMont Health honored

The North Carolina Community College System and the State Board of Community Colleges announced on January 24, that Gaston College and CaroMont Health are the recipients of the Distinguished Partners in Excellence Award for 2023. This award “recognizes an exemplary employer, business or industry group that has demonstrated decisive involvement and firm commitment to the professional development of its employees and/or to the development of North Carolina’s workforce through its partnership efforts with one or more of the 58 community colleges in the North Carolina Community College System.”

In announcing this award, along with other statewide excellence awards, Dr. Bill Carver, Interim President of the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS), said, “Congratulations to our award winners across the state, and I thank you for your tremendous effort and impact in making North Carolina community colleges successful.”

The long-standing part-

nership between Gaston College and CaroMont Health has been beneficial to the two entities as well as the Gaston County community. Collaboration with Gaston County Schools resulted in the development of a health science academy at East Gaston High School, now in its fourth year of operation, and the Gaston County Early College of Medical Sciences (GCECMS), which launched in August 2021. Students at the academy and at GCECMS have active learning opportunities and complete high school and college coursework, earning certificates or diplomas in various health care professions.

The partnership has resulted in expansion of clinical simulation for Gaston College students and the larger health care community, as well as the addition of new health care programs to meet industry needs. CaroMont Health and the CaroMont Health Foundation have provided funding and the College has provided training to CaroMont employees and other health care providers. Many students who have completed health care pro-

The close relationship between Gaston College and CaroMont Health has affected a large number of health care apprentices who, through the College’s Apprenticeship 321 program, have received a tuition-free education and on-the-job training at CaroMont Health facilities.

The stars come out for KMHS football banquet

Kings Mountain High School honored one of its best football teams ever Thursday night with a meal and awards night at First Baptist Church.

The 2022 Mountaineers won the Big South 3A Conference and 13 games overall before falling to the state 3A champion East Lincoln Mustangs in the fourth round of the NCHSAA playoffs.

At the close of the meeting, Greg Lloyd’s family announced a new Kenny Lloyd Team Before Self award that will be given annually in memory of Greg’s father Kenny Lloyd. It was presented to Catherine Hicks, wife of former head coach Denny Hicks and one of the Mountaineers’ biggest fans since she moved to Kings Mountain in the early 1980s.

Trophy presentations started with the defense and defensive coordinator Darrel Wilson praised his group which allowed just 14 points per game to claim their fourth conference championship in 16 years.

Wilson said it was considered a rebuilding year but “we just kept pushing each other and the team played for each other.”

Wilson pointed out that the KM defense allowed just 14.6 points per game. “The team made me a better coach,” he said.

Athletic director Matt Bridges presented the best defensive back awards to Jake Lloyd and Bryson Brown.

“We had a special group,

top to bottom,” Bridges said. Brown led the team with six pass interceptions and also had 29 solo tackles. Just a junior, he was a second year starter and All-Conference.

Lloyd was a three-year starter and was All-Conference as well. He registered 69 solo tackles while playing multiple positions and did that shortly after undergoing some medical problems that had him hospitalized in serious condition during the summer.

Head coach Greg Lloyd presented the Jeff Putnam Linebacker Award to Jason Melton. Putnam was an assistant coach for the Mountaineers for several years before his death.

“I never met a more proud Mountaineer than Jeff,” noted Coach Lloyd. “We miss him.”

Melton “was an outstanding linebacker who worked very hard,” Coach Lloyd noted. He had 80 solo tackles and a season average of 6.3 tackles per game. He also recorded five quarterback sacks.

Coach Wilson presented the most improved defensive player award to Antonio Armstrong who registered 64 tackles (4.6 per game) and a very impressive 25 tackles for loss.

“We had a lot of great players on defense,” Coach Wilson noted. “Defense for us starts up front. He transferred in and had to learn the KM way. He’s one of the fastest players coming off the

line.”

Wilson presented the Defensive Lineman Award to Jamel Kennedy. “He hustles 100 percent on every play,” Wilson noted. “He plays faster than he runs the forty.”

Wilson presented the Defensive Coach’s Award to versatile junior Zay Smith, who plays many positions on offense, defense and special teams.

“He plays with a lot of passion,” Wilson noted. “He is a flexible player.”

The Defensive MVP Award went to Curtis Simpson, a junior who is being courted by numerous major college teams.

“He will make a name for himself in college,” Wilson

said. “He works hard. He got hurt late in the season but led the state in sacks. We’re glad he will be coming back next season.”

Assistant coach Michael Harris presented the special teams award to kicker Jaden Ellis, a third year starter who in ‘22 hit 58 of 62 PAT attempts, three of six field goals and had 23 touchbacks. Over his career he scored 156 points and hit 90 percent of his PATs. He also recorded 50 touchbacks.

Harris also noted that AJ Richardson recorded five blocked kicks and team had 12 overall.

The offensive back awards went to leading rusher Teddy Jeffries, who finished

with 1144 yards rushing and 19 TDs and Caleb Holland, a versatile player that also gained close to 1,000 yards.

“We had a very talented group,” noted Coach Bell. “Jeffries can score from anywhere on the field. Holland is small but he’s tough. He ran hard and was a great leader. Give him that ball and he’s going to score.”

Coach Mark Latham presented the wide receiver award to Ja’Qualyn Sanders

who caught 45 passes for 762 yards and five TDs.

“We had a great group,” he said. “Sanders plays wide receiver like a linebacker. He breaks tackles. He has an unlimited amount of potential.”

Coach Cruise presented the Fred Plonk Blocking Trophy – the oldest trophy given at KMHS dating back to the early 1950s – to Michael Lubas.

“When the offensive line comes off the field, we talk and all they wanted to do was run the ball,” noted Coach Cruise. “He’s one of the smartest guys out there and one of the finest young men.”

The most improved player on offense was lineman Alex Jackson, who also drew high compliments from Coach Cruise.

“He is a lot of fun to coach,”

Cruise said. “Tenacious is a good word for all of my guys. All of them want to be in the forefront of winning football games.”

Cruise presented the offensive most valuable player award to Isaiah Eskridge, who must love pancakes because Cruise said he had “pancake after pancake” on the football field. “Our offense wins as the offensive line goes,” Cruise said. “He always plays hard and had more pancakes than anyone I’ve ever seen.”

Coach Lloyd presented the Brent Bagwell Offensive Coaches Award to quarterback Lamont Littlejohn. Bagwell was an all-conference lineman at KMHS and NC State and served the Mountaineers for several years before his death as an assistant coach. “He was gone too soon,” Coach Lloyd said. “He was very instrumental in the progress of our program. He is missed daily and will never be forgotten.”

Lloyd noted that Littlejohn was an All-Conference quarterback and during his time as a starter led the team to a 23-4 overall record.

“He stays calm all the time,” Lloyd said, “and he was calming influence on our team.”

As a junior and senior, Lloyd pointed out that Littlejohn led the Mountaineers on some late-game winning drives in the state playoffs, moving the team 99 yards in the final minute to defeat Franklin his junior year and completing some big passes in the final minute to set up the winning TD against West Charlotte last season.

Littlejohn finished his senior year hitting 155 of 240 passes for 2,488 yards and 21 touchdowns.

The Donnie Mace Tough Man of the Year trophy went to senior Jake Lloyd, who was in very critical condition with COVID and pneumonia during the summer of 2022. He spent 11 days in the hospital.

“Football was the furthest thing on our minds,” Coach Lloyd noted. “Through good doctors and the prayers of a lot of people he pulled through. Then he fractured his finger on the first day of seven on sevens but was able to come back and play his senior year.”

The awards presentation ended with Coach Lloyd presenting the most valuable player trophy to the very versatile senior AJ Richardson, who was not just a nightmare for opponents on defense but was an unstoppable running back on short yardage plays in the shadow of the end zone.

“We had a lot of special players,” Lloyd said, “but AJ was really special and is going to do great things in college.”

Richardson was the team’s only four-year starter. His senior year he registered 92 tackles and 32 tackles for loss. He also blocked multiple kicks.

During Richardson’s time on the field, the Mountaineers went 43-3 in the Big South Conference and 43-8 overall.

Other awards:

Seniors that came up through the KM Optimist program – Caleb Holland, Jake Lloyd and Dalton Smith – received awards from Lavon Clark.

All Big South 3A awards –Bryson Brown, Michael Lubas, Lamont Littlejohn, Zay Smith, Jake Lloyd, Antonio Armstrong, Teddy Jeffries, Curtis Simpson, Isaiah Eskridge, AJ Richardson.

BSC Defensive Player of the Year, All-Conference and All-State – Curtis Simpson.

All-State and BSC Lineman of the Year – Isaiah Eskridge.

KMHS baseball hopes to make another BSC championship run

Kings Mountain High’s baseball team has several returning starters from last year’s Big South Conference championship team and they hope to add another trophy to their collection.

Veteran Coach Brad Melton put the Mountaineers through a couple of scrimmage games Saturday at Lancaster Field and they will begin their regular season February 27 at East Rutherford. Their first three games will be on the road as they go to Enka on March 3 and Cherryville on March 7.

The Mountaineers will host Blacksburg in their first home game on March 8 and will entertain the Ashbrook Green Wave in their first Big South game on March 14. Melton played all of his players in the two scrimmage games against Chase Saturday at Lancaster Field and saw a lot of promise. All of the returning starters and newcomers played well.

The Mountaineers return seven seniors, including last year’s Big South Conference Player of the Year Zane Brockman who was undefeated (8-0) on the mound and had his usual hot bat hitting well over the .300 clip.

Centerfielder Jacob Hamrick, a two-time All-Conference standout, also returns. Wyatt Davis, who also had a great year on the mound and led the team in innings pitched and strikeouts, also has looked good in early drills.

Catcher Cole Irby, left fielder Lucas Saldo and first baseman-DH Hunter Ellis also were heavy hitters and plan to continue their success this spring. Colton Mayse, Brayden Patrick and Ty Toney also return.

“Pitching should be our

strength,” Melton says. “We hope to be better overall. I feel really positive about the offense. We only lost three seniors. We’ll miss them but we have a good senior class.”

The Mountaineers finished 12-2 in the conference and 18-6 overall last year. Their BSC championship was Kings Mountain’s first since 2009.

“We should be competitive in the Big South,” Melton said. “We should have as good a shot as anybody.”

Melton predicted North Gaston, which has two good pitchers, and Crest to be solid contenders. Stuart Cramer will also be dangerous as the Storm has a pitcher that throws the ball 96 mph.

“South Point’s always good but they lost a lot of players,” he said.” I think we’ll see the same teams at the top of the conference. We’re just glad that we’re going to be one of them.”

Melton begins his fifth year as head coach of the Mountaineers and they’ve been first, second or third every year. They went 4-1 in the shortened COVID year when they would have been one of the favorites to win the conference.

Melton will again be assisted by John Gamble and Wil Sellers.

“We need to get a lot of work in,” he said. “This week’s supposed to be nice and we can get outside and get a lot done. We hope the good weather continues.”

Lady Mountaineers’ softball looking forward to good year

Kings Mountain High’s women’s softball team will warm up for its 2023 season Saturday with its annual scrimmage at the YMCA.

Eight teams will be involved in the event, beginning at 9 a.m.

Coach Kevin Cruise said the Lady Mountaineers will open their regular season on Wednesday, March 1 against the Burns Lady Bulldogs.

Cruise said the team has already won scrimmage games against Draughn, North Buncombe and Hibriten and did not give up a single run.

With several veterans returning, the Lady Mountaineers could make a strong run in the Big South 3A Conference.

Melton said the Mountaineers will have some promotional nights this season that the fans will enjoy. They will honor the 1989 and 1993 state championship teams and have some other promotions for the fans to enjoy.

The first game’s promotional night will be Lickety Lew’s Night which will feature free giveaways. Other special nights include Hotdog Night ($1 hot dogs) on March 14, T-shirt Night (free T-shirt giveaways) on March 21, Retro Night (80’s music) on March 31, Little League Night (teams invited and kids run bases after the game) on April 6, Earth Day Night (free giveaways from the city) on April 18, Senior Night (honoring all senior players) on April 28, Champion Night featuring a shortened game pitting the 1989 and 1983 state championship teams against each other) on April 28 and Thirsty Night (half price drinks at the concession stand) on May 5.

toughest

Cruise feels like the Lady Mountaineers will be right in the thick of the battle for first place. Most of his players have varsity starting experience and he also has some promising freshmen in Madeline Huffman and Ava Tipton.

“We’re very young,”

he noted. “There’s a good chance we could start four to five freshmen. All of them are very talented. This freshman class may be one of the most talented since the Morgan Childers group (that won championships). We look for this group to be very good.

“Practice has been going very well,” he added. “We’ve been able to dodge the rain. We were outside every day last week. Every player is working hard. The season is coming on us pretty quickly and we have so much to get in. They’ve all done good and competing every day. We’ve got a really good group. The defense looks solid and our pitching will lead us. We have three quality pitchers and any one of them can be dominant. The defense is leaps and bounds better than last year and we have good depth.”

Coach Cruise has three good assistants in Jeff Cloninger, Cassie King and Shon Macopson.

Patriots with 16 points. Nazire Davis and KJ Bell added seven each, Cristian Hill three and Christian Jarrett two.

Both teams were red hot to open the game with Shelby taking a 13-11 lead with just under a minute to go in the first quarter. KM’s Hutchens scored six of his 16 points during that span.

The second quarter saw both teams cool down but their defensive intensity picked up. Davis and Bell hit threes to help the Patriots cut the difference to 21-19 at the half.

The defensive battle con-

tinued in the third quarter and Shelby carried a 28-21 lead going into the final period. Hutchens and Davis combined for 10 points and Bell added four as KM was able to rally late. The Patriots were down by just four with over two minutes to play before Shelby went on a run to win by nine.

“This was a fun year,” said KM Coach Shane Cole. “They guys showed a lot of growth and really bought into what KM basketball is all about. The team has a lot of heart. Now is the time to start working for next year.”

Grover Elementary’s special Valentine’s Day delivery

Residents at Summit Place in Kings Mountain all received a special delivery on Valentine’s Day this year. The planning for this special delivery began in December 2022, when students at Grover Elementary School started bringing in stuffed animals to donate to a Stuffed Animal “Pet Adoption” the school planned in conjunction with Summit Place. In addition to what the students donated, PetSmart of Shelby also donated seventy-five stuffed animals

including dogs, cats, fish, birds, hedgehogs, and iguanas. Each third and fourth grade student selected a stuffed animal. The students named the animal and wrote a pet profile about their animal. Students used their imagination to create a profile that included the pet's likes, dislikes, where it liked to sleep, what its perfect day would include, and how the pet came to Grover Elementary School to be adopted.

The students worked on this project in their guidance classes with the School
