Masks become optional in state agencies March 7 On March 1, Governor Cooper signed Executive Order No. 253 and announced masks would become optional at state agencies on Monday, March 7. However, agencies may continue to require masks in high-risk settings. According to the press release, the decision was based on improving trends with COVID-19 and stated that masks would become optional in most state agencies and facilities beginning March 7. This coincides with updates to guidance from state health officials based on the emerging science and evidence to best protect North Carolinians. “COVID-19 levels are declining rapidly, and we have vaccinations, boosters, and effective treatments that are making this step possible,” Governor Roy Cooper said. “This

virus is still causing serious illness and death mostly in unvaccinated people and the best way to protect yourself is to get vaccinated and boosted.” Under Executive Order No. 253, the Office of State Human Resources has updated policies for face coverings for state government agencies that are part of

the Governor’s cabinet. Agency heads may require face coverings in settings that they determine to be high-risk including long term care facilities, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, and health care facilities, and federal regulations continue to require masks in certain facilities. Requirements remain

OPINION Pieces of Kings Mountain History TODAY’S QUOTE:

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. – Jim Rohn

Often when I write my Pieces column, much research has LORETTA been done COZART prior to publishing the story. Such is the case in this week’s column; however, this time I was not the person doing the research. This week’s story comes from research done by Martha Baker Rudisill who provided research on Philip Sylvanus Baker (18481907) an early textile pioneer in Kings Mountain, that she shared it with the KM Historical Museum. As a child, Anvil Knit was just down Linwood Road from North Piedmont Avenue. Once you crossed the railroad tracks, there was a mill on the right that was used as storage by Craftspun Yarns. The mill burned in 1973, while I was a student at Kings Mountain Junior High School. After the fire, students walked

home past the mill to see the scene for ourselves. It was a smoldering mess and the smell of smoke and ash hung in the area for days. I learned later that the mill was first known as the Lula Mill, according to Martha Rudisill’s research. While I can’t speak to all the names this mill had over time, it started out as the Lula Mill in 1900. Around 1908, W. A. Mauney bought it after Philip S. Baker’s death and renamed it the Phenix Mill. In time, Crafspun Yarns used the property for storage. Below is the research Rudisill surmised on the origin of the name of the Lula Cotton Mill in Kings Mountain. “I have tried to find why P. S. Baker named the cotton mill that he founded in Kings Mountain in 1900 the Lula Cotton Mill. The other cotton mills in Kings Mountain that were named for ladies (Cora, Bonnie, Mar-

the name Lula Baker on Ancestry, I found a death certificate for Lula A. Baker (full name - Lula Anna Belle Baker), born 25 Oct 1871 in Gaston County, NC. She died in Lincoln County 30 Aug 1924. Her parents were Auston Grover and Susan Lynch. Lula was married to John David Baker

On Friday, March 4, at 4:35 p.m., City of Kings Mountain emailed the Herald notice that a Special Meeting had been called for the Kings Mountain City Council on February 8 at 5 p.m. to consider a voluntary annexation petition for approximately 125-acres of land located nearest to 102 Woodlake Parkway Drive in Kings Mountain. According to the city council’s meetings and agendas page on cityofkm. com, this is the fourth Special Meeting called by city council in 2022, if you consider the Project South Community Meeting. Technically, the notice was sent out two-days and 25 minutes prior to the meeting, considering business days only. Special Meetings in North Carolina are regulated under open meetings law requirements for all public bodies. If a public body meets at some time or place other than that shown on its regular meeting schedule, or if the public body does not meet on a regular schedule, it must give special meeting notice. Each of these forms of notice must occur at least forty-eight hours before the meeting. Such a notice sets out the time, place, and purpose of the meeting and is provided in

three ways. • First, it must be posted on the principal bulletin board of the public body (or on the meeting room door if there is no principal bulletin board). • Second, it must be mailed, emailed, or delivered to any person who has made a written request for notice of special meetings. • Third, it must be posted on the website of the public body if it has one. Technically, the city did give notice to the Herald regarding this Special Meeting; however, the paper is weekly publication that comes out on Wednesdays. Therefore, it was technically impossible for the Herald to share this information with the public prior to Tuesday’s meeting. The Herald then checked the classifieds for the Star and found no record of the notice of a Special Meeting in that publication either. Lastly, the Herald checked the cityofkm. com website and the city’s Facebook page to see if notice was posted. No such notices regarding this Special Meeting were found. However, the agenda for the Special Meeting had been posted under the City Council Agenda Center. The public’s right to attend meetings of public

One son (Hugh - age 16) was working in a cotton mill. In the 1920 census they had five sons & two daughters living with them - listed as farming.” “When I researched the family of John David Baker, I found that he and P. S. Baker were cousins. John David’s father was See PIECES, Page 5A

PHILIP S. BAKER (Photo provided by Martha Baker Rudisill grace, etc.) were named for the wives or daughters of the founders. This was not the case for the Lula Mill. Philip’s two wives had the names Sarah Jane and Selena Ellen. His daughters were Sarah Selena (Sallie), Lillian Leola, and Jessie Pearl. Two of his sons married in the 1890’s. The names of their wives were Sallie V. (Henry) and Martha Jane (Rufus).” “When I searched

Transparency essential to local government By Loretta Cozart

(1867-1938) in 1890. John and Lula are buried in the Salem Baptist Church Cemetery in Lincoln County. In the 1900 federal census they were living in Lincoln County and had three sons; John was listed as a farmer. In 1910 they had seven sons and one daughter; John was still farming.

bodies represents a strong policy in favor of transparency in local government decision making. Compliance with the notice requirements is an essential element of providing the mandated access. Mayor Neisler defended the city’s decision to hold this Special Meeting in an interview Monday saying, “I am always in favor of Economic Development for our city and the city followed the letter of the law by giving two days’ notice.” The city has a website and could have posted notice on their website. The city has a Facebook page and could have posted the notice there, as it did for the Public Hearing for Project South. Running notices in local papers is the least the city could have done. The city did not. Did City of Kings Mountain follow the letter of the law allowing ample notice of this Special Meeting? Yes, but barely. Could it do better by adopting a stronger policy of transparency and allowing community participation? Definitely. Giving the public the opportunity to participate in decision making for the city is essential to transparency of local government.

How much is freedom worth? In America we pursue the occupation of our choice. That doesn’t mean we always like our jobs but we can choose to pursue another career or several Glenn Mollette different Guest Editorial careers. We can choose our state, community, and house. That doesn’t mean we can easily afford to live where we choose but we are free to pursue life in another neighborhood if we want to work toward such a move. We change our lives if we have the desire and the will power. People make choices every day regarding health, habits and lifestyles. Some choose to develop themselves further and strive to be better while others may choose to do nothing. You choose your house, your car, your clothes, and your hairstyle (if you have any). You choose what you will do on your days off from work or during your retirement years. You choose if you retire or if you just keep on working until the end. Often, we may feel as if we don’t have choices and that we are stuck in a rut. Chances are we made choices that put us there. We have to make tough choices to climb out of the rut. We can easily become

disabled physically, financially and domestically which will significantly limit our choices. Because of health, money, and maybe even age, our choices are often very limited. Most of the time, even when we have limitations, we can find freedom of choice. The bottom line is we live in America and we cherish our freedom. We should remember our history and the great sacrifices made by so many. We should never take for granted the unimaginable hardships endured by the early settlers and every generation that has fought wars and lost tens of thousands of men and women in wars to keep our sacred and blessed freedom. In his 1961 State of the Union address, President John F. Kennedy reminded us that every generation of Americans has had to win its freedom. We will never stay free unless we are willing to fight and sacrifice to keep our freedom. How much is freedom worth? The brave people of Ukraine and President Volodymyr Zelenskyy are showing the world what freedom is worth. Their lives. While many of the young and aged are exiting Ukraine, President Zelenskyy and thousands are risking their lives to keep Ukraine free from the aggression of Russia and the evil of Vladimir Putin. Putin is not our friend or a friend to the free world. His path to conquer Ukraine is an Adolph

Hitler move. Destroying a city and attempting to conquer a nation while killing thousands in order to increase his domain is barbaric. In the midst of all this, we are surely reminded that we must once again become energy independent. Russia is a supplier of 40 percent of the natural gas used by Germany and most of Europe. They and America must stop buying energy and anything else from Russia. We have made them a rich nation while sacrificing our own independence. Watching as Ukraine’s government hands out AK47s and other guns surely reminds us of the importance of being able to protect ourselves. Keep your guns, stock up on your ammunition, and never vote for anyone who wants to edit our Second Amendment. We must pray for Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian people but we must also help them with whatever aid necessary to push Russia out. Keep in mind that Russia is only 55 miles from Alaska’s closest port. Putin just might decide that Russia should have Alaska back. We bought Alaska fair and square in 1867 for $7.2 million and we won’t be handing it back. How much is freedom worth? Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the people of Ukraine are demonstrating how much freedom is worth.

was their great-grandfather, Joseph Baker, Jr., who inherited the Baker homestead in Gaston County, near Crouse.” “I do not know why P.

The building was demolished after the fire.” So, Martha Rudisill patiently researched to determine why the mill was named Lula. And, as best as I can tell she got as close as anyone can so long after the fact. For decades it was assumed the mill was named for Philip S. Baker’s wife. Not so. One hundred and twenty-two years after the naming, this is the most reasonable explanation I have heard so far. Thank you, Martha, for helping us unravel the mystery.

Raging Insanity Part Deux I ’ v e o f t e n stated there was no intelligent life in Washington DC, but Roger R. I was Woodard, ThD. w r o n g . Senior Pastor Family Worship The reCenter g i m e c u r rently in power is intelligent, just diabolical, evil and anti-American. When you impose sanctions on Russia but exempt the most powerful

weapon that would truly hurt, oil. At the same time use Russia to negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran in order to get their oil, that truly is raging insanity. Especially when we have more oil than both of them and enforce a crushing energy crisis for us and our allies. This is intentional and evil to force us to buy expensive electric vehicles. Jen Psaki and Pete Buttigieg state it clearly, we have no intention in fixing the US industry by opening our

oil production. They are killing jobs and our economy to bring us all to dependence on government’s plan for us. Currently they are only trying to mitigate the issue to get by November. Intentional, purposeful, evil and hoping the voting public is dumb enough to ignore it and re-elect them. It is obvious Washington has become our rulers and the enemy of the people. They just don’t care what we think.They plan to plow straight ahead with demonic fa-

naticism. Don’t believe me? Try and change the direction they are taking us. Are we really that dumb? According to the polls at east 37% are. You may say, you are a man of God and what does this have to with the Bible? I am a man of God, and it has plenty to do with the Bible! (Revelation 13:15b17); “And he had power.....to cause as many as would not worship the beast to be killed. And causes all....to receive a mark in their right hand or

in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he who had the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name”. The number is 666 (vs18). “The World Economic Forum recently published a new 46-page report detailing it’s Orwellian plan to control pretty much everything in your life. The report, called Advancing Digital Agency: The Power of Data Intermediaries describes a digital system that would collect personal data about your

online behavior, purchase history, network usage, medical history, travel history, energy uses, health stats, and more. This data would then be used to determine who can open bank accounts, conduct financial transactions, access insurance, health care treatment, book trips, cross borders, and more”. I’m way over space. Are you ready for this? It’s coming ready or not!

the dog is being treated well within the military. Military dogs are trained to serve and protect their handlers and the platoon. The Department of Defense estimates that these dogs are worth about $100,000. To the handlers and the rest of the platoon these dogs are invaluable. American enemies know the value of these dogs to the military and how fiercely loyal these dogs are to their handlers. They will shoot a military dog first, before shooting the handler or anyone else in the platoon. To honor our military working dogs, I want to tell you about a World War I Veteran by the name of Sergeant Stubby. Sergeant Stubby was born some time in 1916 or 1917, died in his sleep on March 16, 1926, and he is believed to be the very first U.S. Military Dog. He was the official mascot of the U.S. 102nd Infantry Regiment, assigned to the 26th Division. He served for 18 months and participated in seventeen battles on the Western Front. He found and comforted the wounded, saved his regiment from surprise mustard gas attacks, and once caught a German soldier by the seat of his pants, holding him there until American soldiers found him. Sergeant Stubby’s actions were well-documented in American newspapers of the time. So how did this little dog end up a hero of World War I? In July 1917, while members of the 102nd Infantry were training at Yale University, Stubby was found wandering around. Corporal Robert Conroy grew found of the dog and when it came time for his outfit to ship out, he hid Stubby on the troop ship and then under his coat as they disembarked the ship in France.

When the commanding officer discovered the dog, Stubby saluted him as he had been trained to in camp, and the commanding officer allowed the dog to stay. Stubby became a celebrity when he returned to the U.S. He marched in, and normally led, parades across the country. He met Presidents Wilson, Coolidge, and Harding and in 1921, was presented a gold medal from the Humane Education Society by General Pershing. Sergeant Stubby began attending Georgetown University Law Center with Conroy in 1921 and became the Georgetown Hoyas team mascot. Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero is a computer-animated family movie about this stray Boston Terrier who eventually became a hero during World War I. The Colonel Frederick Hambright Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Rev-

olution encourages you to take a moment on March 13th to salute the heroes that serve and protect on four legs. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to preserve the memory and spirit of those who contributed to securing American independence. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership.

Goveronor Cooper sanctions Russia O n February 28, Governor Roy Cooper signed Executive Order No. 251 in response to GOV. COOPER Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that directs state government agencies and departments to review all existing contracts and operations and to terminate any agreements or operations that directly benefit Russian entities. “The invasion of Ukraine is an attack on a free people. This order sends a strong message and helps ensure no public dollars or operations from North Carolina will benefit Russia and its unjustified aggression,” said

Governor Roy Cooper. “Our state stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine as they fight courageously against a tyrant to defend their country, their democracy and their freedom.” The Executive Order covers all state government agencies and departments over which the Governor has executive authority, as well as state entities for which the Governor appoints the chief executive or a majority of the board members. Other state entities and local governments in North Carolina are strongly encouraged to adopt similar policies, including divesting from Russian assets to ensure that public dollars and operations do not benefit Russia and avoiding new contracts with Russian entities.

This order includes, but is not limited to: • Alcohol Sales: The North Carolina ABC Commission is directed to review its list of approved products for any produced by Russian Entities and to suspend the approval of such products as quickly as practicable. • Purchase & Contract: The Department of Administration, Division of Purchase & Contract, is directed to terminate any such contracts with Russian entities as quickly as practicable if they are identified. Currently available information from the North Carolina ABC Commission suggests that three alcohol brands – Hammer & Sickle, Beluga, and Russian Standard – would be subject to this Executive Order.

in 2021, and a couple that were inadvertently left off the one done in 2020, into wards. A fourth Public Hearing is scheduled to consider text amendments to the City of Kings Mountain Unified Development Ordinance based upon discussion at the Work Session, which was held prior to this meeting. Regarding the budget, the following items were approved: • $400,000 to advance money from the Gas operating fund to be repaid when loan proceeds are received and to transfer budget among expenditure line items in the Gas Capital Project Fund. • $289,935 to increase revenues in the ARPA Grant Project Fund budget based upon actual amounts to be awarded, and to reclassify expenditures among line items. • $15,000 to budget for a

Kings Mountain TDA contribution for an eight-passenger utility vehicle for Special Events. This contribution was restricted for this purpose and was intended for the 2020-21 budget; however, it was not shipped and invoiced until this fiscal year. • $60,000 to budget for projected occupancy tax revenues and the corresponding pass through (expenditure) to the TDA. Note occupancy tax revenues are projected to exceed budget due to extreme conservatism in budgeting (unknowns of COVID impacts on travel/hotel occupancy at the time the budget was adopted last spring). It is important to note that the city essentially acts as a collection agent for the tax and is required by law to remit these taxes, less a 3% collection/ admin fee to the TDA. City council next voted to

A third Public Hearing was also scheduled to consider the adoption of an Ordinance amending the City Charter assigning the annexed properties after council declared the Wards boundaries of the City of Kings Mountain, known as of December 31, 2021, in order for Planning Staff to forward updated city limit and ward maps to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Cleveland County COVID numbers on the decline By Loretta Cozart Cleveland County’s COVID numbers dropped last week countywide. Because of this, Cleveland County moved from high to medium risk and wearing masks indoors in public places is no longer recommended. As of March 4, 29,442 COVID cases had been reported since the onset of the

pandemic with 362 deaths. CDC data shows hospital admissions in the county were at 6.9% last week and there were 132.72 cases per 100,000 residents. The risk is calculated as Medium according to the new CDC methodology. Prevention steps for a medium risk community level recommend that if you are at high risk for severe illness, you talk to your

healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions, stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, and get tested if you have symptoms. People may choose to mask at any time. And people with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.

authorize the City Manager, or her designee, to execute all right of way and easement agreements. There was no public discussion of this topic at the meeting. Mayor Neisler clarified later that the purpose is to give the city manager, or a her designee, the ability to execute right of way and easements agreements for utilities. City Council voted to donate equipment, valued at approximately $5,000, to ElectriCities, a non-profit organization for use at their new training facility. Donated were an ABB, 15 KV Overhead Electronic Recloser and cabinet o Purchased in 2006, a Siemens, 15.5 KV Substation Vacuum Circuit Breaker and stand o Purchased in 1991, and a Siemens 5/8% Step – Voltage Regulators and Control Panels purchased in 1991. City council also voted to create the Kings Mountain Recreation Committee and appoint the following members: Councilmember David Allen, Councilmember Jay Rhodes,

and Councilmember Jimmy West. The committee will also consist of one member of the Kings Mountain YMCA, Kings Mountain Elite, Kings Mountain Optimist Club, NC Crown Soccer Club and Cleveland County School District, which members are to be appointed by the organization. Chip McGill was appointed to the ABC Board, with term beginning April 1 and expiring on March 31, 2025. City Council also approved a request from Steve and Brad Moffitt, at 166 Northshore Drive, Cherryville, to replace a pier with the same projection of 85-feet on Moss Lake. New docks are limited to 60-feet, but since this was for the replacement of an existing pier, staff recommended approval. Also approved was to authorize the mayor to execute the School Resource Officers services contract with Cleveland County Board of Education and authorize Chief Lisa Proctor to execute the Mem-

orandum of Understanding as to the School Resource Officers service. City council also declared the Wards boundaries of the City of Kings Mountain, known as of December 31, 2021, in order for Planning Staff to forward updated city limit and ward maps to the U.S. Census Bureau. According to the city, the new GIS maps are much more detailed, and the US Census Bureau’s corporate limit boundaries do not match perfectly with the City of Kings Mountain official corporate boundaries. The new conflated maps that City Council approved will be sent to the US Census (in electronic GIS files) so that in the future the US Census Bureau’s depiction of the City of Kings Mountain Corporate Boundaries will match perfectly with the official City of Kings Mountain Boundaries. It includes annexed areas that were added to the city limits in December 2020.

Mountaineers blank Shelby 4-0 in first home game of ‘22 Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers, wearing their throw-back 1989 state championship black and gold uniforms, opened the home portion of their ’22 season Thursday night with a 4-0 victory over the Shelby Golden Lions. Charlie Melton started and pitched five strong innings, giving up just a first inning double to the Lions’ Stephen Pack while striking out nine. Overall, KM pitchers recorded 14 strikeouts. Jack Toney pitched the sixth inning and struck out three of the four batters he faced. The other reached base on an error. Brayden Patrick worked the final inning and fanned two. Kings Mountain’s offense wasn’t that explosive as Shelby pitchers combined for eight strikeouts while giving up just two hits. The Mountaineers scored

what turned out to be the winning run in the bottom of the first when Caleb Broome walked and gained second, third and home on Shelby errors. KM added another pair in the third, sending seven men to the plate and getting their only hits from Jacob Hamrick and Peyton Fisher. Hamrick got things going with one out with a hard smash just inside the foul line at third base. One run scored on an error and the other on a sacrifice fly to center by Cole Irby. Maddox Brown, who was hit by a pitch to open the bottom of the fourth, scored the final run on an error. The Mountaineers opened their season the previous Tuesday with a 6-2 loss to the Burns Bulldogs in Lawndale. The Mountaineers managed just two hits, but one was a monster home run by Fisher. See SHELBY, Page 2B

Kings Mountain High’s women’s softball team had their bats booming in a 19-0 victory over the Shelby Lady Lions Friday night in Shelby. Alayna Patrick, Saniya Wilson and Austyn Dixon all had multiple hit games and Dixon slammed a two-run homer in the top of the second inning. Kali Weaver took care of Shelby on the mound, allowing just two hits while striking out 10. The Lady Mountaineers opened their regular season last week with a 3-0 loss to Chase on the road. Weaver surrendered just See SOFTBALL, Page 2B

From Page 1B KM’s only other hit was a single by Broome. Wyatt Davis started and pitched four strong innings. The Bulldogs pulled away later in the game. “It was a very cold night,” noted Coach Brad Melton. “Wyatt did a good job. I just don’t like to pitch someone an entire game when it’s that cold.” Kings Mountain dropped a 4-3, eight-inning decision to a traditionally powerful 2A East Rutherford team Friday night at Lancaster Field. East grabbed a 3-0 lead in the top of the second and

the Mountaineers came back with three in the sixth to tie things up. East scored the winning run in the top of the eighth and held off the Mountaineers in the bottom of the inning. Fisher and Davis shared pitching duties for the Mountaineers and Isaac Lee and Avery Strange pitched for the Cavaliers. Kings Mountain was scheduled to travel to Blacksburg, SC Tuesday for a non-conference game and will go to Gaffney, SC tonight before hosting Enka Friday at 7 p.m. The Mountaineers will begin Big South Conference play Tues., March 15 at home against the Hunter Huss Huskies.

Prepare for severe weather Governor Roy Cooper proclaimed March 6-12 as Severe Weather Preparedness Week and is urging North Carolinians to prepare for severe weather that’s common during spring months. “North Carolina is no stranger to severe weather, and while spring is typically the most active season for thunderstorms and tornadoes, they can happen any time," Governor Cooper said. “Help protect your family by being prepared for severe weather. Make sure you have an up-to-date emergency kit, a way to receive alerts about dangerous weather, and a preparedness plan

to review with everyone your household.” Governor Cooper also encourages North Carolinians to participate in this year’s statewide tornado drill on Wednesday, March 9 at 9:30 a.m. At home or at work, that means seeking shelter on the lowest floor of your home or building, in an interior room away from doors or windows. Tornadoes form during severe thunderstorms when winds change direction and increase in speed. These storms can produce large hail and damaging winds that can reach 300 miles

The Kings Mountain Herald | www.kmherald.com per hour. A tornado can develop rapidly with little warning, so having a plan in place will allow you to respond quickly. “I encourage everyone to participate in this year’s statewide tornado drill, at home, at work or at school. Having a plan and knowing your designated safe places will go a long way to helping you survive an actual tornado,” said Emergency Management Director Will Ray. Test messages will be broadcast via the Emergency Alert System on radio and TV and on National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

Super Cheap Smartphone Plans for Scrimping Seniors Dear Savvy Senior, Can you direct me to some really cheap wireless smartphone plans for seniors who don’t use much data? I use my smartphone primarily for texting and talking but need some data for checking my email and a few other things when I’m away from Wi-Fi. Right now, I pay $30 per month but am looking for a better deal. Senior Scrimper Dear Scrimper, There are several super cheap wirelesses providers I can recommend for older smartphone users who are looking to save money by paring down their cell phone plan. Here are three of the cheapest options available that you can switch to without sacrificing the quality of your service. Cheapest Wireless Plans For extremely light smartphone data users, the very cheapest wireless plan available today is through Tello (Tello. com), which lets you build your own plan based on your needs or budget. For as little as $6 per month you can

get unlimited texting, 100 minutes of talk time and 500 megabytes (MB) of high-speed data. Increases in talk time or data can be added in $1 increments. Tello uses the T-Mobile network and gives you the option to bring your existing phone or purchase a new device, while keeping your same phone number if you wish. If you want to keep your phone, it must be unlocked. Just enter your phone’s ID (press *#06# on your keypad to get it) on Tello’s website to make sure that it’s compatible with the network. Another super cheap plan to consider is the annual prepaid plan offered through Boost Mobile (BoostMobile. com). For only $100 per year (or $8.33 per month) this plan provides unlimited talk, text and 1 gigabyte (GB) of 5G or 4G data each month. If you need more data, their $150 annual plan (or $12.50/month) gets you 5 GB. Boost Mobile uses the T-Mobile and AT&T networks and lets you use your existing phone (if compatible) or buy

a new one. And a third option to look into is Mint Mobile (MintMobile.com), which is recommended by Consumer Reports and has one of the best values for a cheap plan. Mint offers a $15 per month plan (plus taxes & fees) that provides unlimited talk and text, and 4 GB of 5G/4G data each month. They too use the T-Mobile network and will let you use your existing phone (if compatible) or buy a new one. Lifeline Program If your income is low enough, another option you should check into is the Lifeline Assistance Program. This is a federal program that provides a $9.25 monthly subsidy that could go towards your phone or internet service. To qualify, you’ll need to show that you’re receiving certain types of government benefits such as Medicaid, SNAP (food stamps), SSI, public housing assistance, veterans’ pension and survivors’ benefit, or live on federally recognized Tribal lands. Or, if

your annual household income is at or below 135 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines – $17,388 for one person, or $23,517 for two – you’re also eligible. To check your eligibility or apply, visit LifelineSupport.org. If you do qualify, contact a wireless provider in your area that participates in the Lifeline program and sign up for service with them. You can also ask your current company to apply your Lifeline benefit to a service you are already getting, if it offers the benefit. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.
