Kings Mountain couple trip the light fantastic during “Night To Shine”

Feb. 10 event, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation

Special to the Herald

F or handsome Chad Gunter, Jr., and his beautiful date, Katie Reese, dancing the night away among friends and family at the Feb. 10, 2023 Tim Tebow

“Night To Shine” event, was a night they will never, ever forget. The event was hosted by Anthony Grove Baptist Church, located in Crouse, N.C.

That said, it’s not every day a guy gets to take his best girl out, twirling her around to tunes meant to make you tap your toes and shake a leg, but Feb. 10, 2023 was that “night of all

nights” for the young Kings Mountain couple.

According to Tebow’s web site, “Night to Shine” is a “…complimentary event for people with special needs hosted by local churches around the world. The event is open to anyone living with disabilities, ages 14 and older. Although each event is a little bit different, some activities included are a red-carpet entrance, limousine rides, dancing, karaoke, gifts, a catered dinner, a Respite Room for parents and caregivers, a crowning ceremony where every honored guest will receive a crown or tiara, and more – Night to Shine is a celebration of God’s love for YOU, our Kings and Queens!”

Chad’s father, Chad Gunter, Sr. said his son is 23, and his girlfriend Katie See NIGHT, Page 4

ABC Board gives $40,000 to city for KMPD

On March 8, City of Kings Mountain’s ABC Board delivered a check to the city in the amount of $40,000, to be used by the City’s Police Department to purchase an unmarked vehicle for use by the Investigation Division.

“The ABC Board, in addition to its State-mandated

distributions for alcohol education and rehabilitation, along with law enforcement relating to alcohol; distributes any remaining surplus funds deemed to be profits to the City of Kings Mountain. This however occurs after all expenses, including the maintenance of a significant fund

pool of retained earnings for capital replacement or new construction,” City Manager Jim Palenick shared with city council and the Herald.

“This $40,000 came before retained earnings and not as part of what would be expected as the normal yearly return of profits, but rather

somewhat, over and above.

As such, our gratitude goes out to the ABC Board for its assistance to Chief Childress and the Police Department for what would have otherwise had to have been budgeted for in the City’s 2023-24 General Fund.”

As you can see, these two young people, who both have Down Syndrome, wore classy, matching, purple outfits.”

Mr. Gunter continued, “When they arrived, they walked a red carpet with many on-lookers clapping and cheering, giving them the special treatment they deserve. All the participants were given the royal treatment.”

Chad Sr. noted the two young folks danced the evening away to the music played by a live DJ, and the floor even cleared, he said, for them to dance to Michael Jackson’s epic tune, “Thriller.”

Additionally, Mr. Gunter noted they had delicious snacks and refreshments and got to ride in a luxurious stretch limo. “Moreover, they had their pictures made in a photo booth. Each boy was given a crown and each girl was given a tiara,” he added.

Chad Gunter, Jr. said of his “Night to Shine” memory, “I had the best time at the prom. Katie is the love of my life and I gave my heart to her.”

For her part, Ms. Katie Reese said, “I had a great time, and my favorite (part) was the music and dancing.”

HORN

the family moved to 108 Lackey Street during her later childhood. She attended First Baptist Church (before the split), Second Baptist Church, and Oak Grove Baptist Church during her lifetime.

When asked what kids did for fun, she said, “We jumped rope in the street and played hide and seek after dark. As children, we also sang a song called ‘Go in and Out Your Window, Go in and Out Your Window.’ Then we would kneel in front of ‘our lover’,” she said laughing.

Margaret’s older brother, Jake, was the clown of the family, so much so he would get into trouble at Central that would often result in him leaving school after being sent out into the hall during class. Margaret was sometimes sent home with notes for her parents about Jake, and he would get into trouble. “He got lots of whippings. After a while, I stopped giving those notes to my parents,” she confessed.

“We didn’t have a cafeteria at school back then, so we walked home for lunch. Sometimes, when we walked back to school, a train would be blocking the railroad crossing on Piedmont Avenue. We would have to crawl under the train to get back to school,” she said. “I finished ninth grade at Central.”

In those days, school extended through 11th grade, but students were not required attend. “For a time, I worked at Pauline Mill. My daddy, Wright Huffstetler, was a Loom Fixer,” she said.

Margaret explains what young people did for fun, “Teenagers would gather at a friend’s home that had a piano and sing. I could play the piano by ear. On days when we didn’t sing, we would walk over to the Old Waterworks Park on Gantt Street and swim. Sometimes, we’d walk downtown and go to Summers Drug Store for banana splits. They had the best banana splits. We went to town as much as we could.”

A big smile comes across Margret’s face when she speaks of her husband, Holland A. Horn. She explains how they met. “He had a friend who had a car, and the boys would drive by our house and flirt with us girls. Once there were a bunch of girls at a house across the street from my parent’s home, and we flirted with the boys when they drove up and down the road.”

Holland must have made a big impression on Margaret because they married when she was 17 years old. Holland’s parents lived in Nebo, down Waco Road. “Before we married, we had gone to their property and picked out where we wanted to build our house. His parents wanted us to live with them, but we wanted a house of our own. Holland’s family were carpenters, so they helped us build our house for $500.”

By 1941, World War II had begun, and Margaret’s life got a lot harder. My brother Jake (Jacob Columbus Huffstetler) went into service at the beginning of the war, and he was the first boy from our section to die.”

“Less than a year after

he joined the Navy, seventeen boys from his ship went into town and a big storm came up. They were trying to get back to the ship, USS Gherardi, on a small boat, when it flipped over, and all the boys were lost on December 10, 1942. Jake hit his head on a rock and drowned. It took three weeks to get him home and we buried him at Bessemer City Memorial Cemetery. He recently had his picture made and the negative was in his shoe, so we have a photo. He left behind a wife in Bessemer City and their daughter, Becky, who was just six-months old.”

Husband Holland was also called up to serve and he participated in the Battle of the Bulge and was a Squad Leader. “He served two years,” Margaret shared. When asked what life was like while he was gone, she said, “It was a difficult time, we had two sons, Don who was older and Arnie (Arnold) who was six-months old. We lived with my parents for a time.”

She went on, “When it was time for Holland to come home, I watched the paper and knew when his ship was going to dock. I remember waiting up for him at home. Our house was between two creeks, and I heard him when he got out of the car. I ran to meet him on the bridge to our house; it was a happy homecoming,” she said. Margaret was just 24 years old.

Together, Margaret and Holland had three children, Donald, Arnold (Arnie), and Saundra. Holland died early, and Margaret became a widow. “Dad died in 1963, daughter Saundra shared. “Mom, had good jobs and she did well.”

But life threw the family another challenge in 1990 when son Arnie needed a heart transplant. “I had read about heart transplants using pig’s valves and watched television shows about it. But I never imagined one of my children would ever need that. That surgery added 21 years to his life, and I am thankful for it. He lived to be 63years old. Progress surely is amazing!”

Margaret remembers a lot about Kings Mountain in her lifetime. “I remember when Central burned, and we had to go to West School in the morning and then to Central until 5 p.m. My favorite teacher was Miss Gussey Huffstetler.

I also had a good friend named Irene Gladden, and her daddy was John Gladden.”

“I remember seeing President Hoover and then when President Roosevelt

drove through town. People really did turn out for the presidents back then,” she said.

She also remembers a funny story about shopping at Pauline Store, “Once I had a big piece of silver with a hole in it when I was young. I tried to use it to buy a doll. That didn’t work,” she laughs.

She also remembers shopping at Robert’s Store, Gault Brothers Grocery, and Bridges TV. Downtown, she remembers

Sterchi’s, Lawyer Davis’s office, Griffin’s Drug Store, Fulton’s, Home Savings & Loan, Kings Mountain National Bank, Belk’s, Sum-

mers Drug Store, Plonk’s, and Cooper’s Furniture. “Those were sure the good old days, back then,” Margaret said with a smile.

Being a Doer of the Word

Many of you recall Romper Room—that children’s TV program from the 50s–90s!

I recall the hostess peering through her magic mirror and naming people in her viewing audience. I also recall a “Mr. Do Bee” and a “Mr. Don’t Bee.” The hand puppets aimed to instill good eti-

quette. “Do Bee good boys and girls for your parents!” and “Don’t Bee like this . . . .”

In Workout #2 for our Christian faith, James gives us a “do be” and a “don’t be” for hearing the Word of God.

He says, “Be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves” (James 1:22). We hear the Word in many ways. In the Sunday worship service, in our Sunday school class,

our weekly Bible study, daily Bible reading, or favorite TV preacher.

That’s good. For your initial faith in Christ, if you are saved, came through hearing the good news of Christ. “ Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christ” (Rom 10:17).

But we are not to be “hearers only.” (That’s the “don’t be.”) We are not to take in the Word of God and take off from church thinking, “I’m done. I’m good til next Sunday.”

James likens such an

attitude to someone who looks in the mirror and goes on with his or her day—not fixing anything. How unreal is that? No brushing the hair . . . no trimming the moustache . . . no applying makeup!

When we hear the Word of God, there is always something to fix. An attitude to correct. A motive to purify. A sin to forsake. An action to practice.

So we must be doers of the Word. (That’s the “do be.”) We must not forget it but obey it. James calls each Christian to be “an

effectual doer,” not “a forgetful hearer” (James 1:25). We must work the Word into our lives!

What is our daily reward? True happiness. James says, “This man will be blessed in what he does” (James 1:25) Jesus says the same –“Blessed are those who hear the Word of God and keep it” (Lk 10:28) And so does this grand hymn Trust and obey for there’s no other way, To be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey.

KMHM has newly donated historic photos

Kings Mountain Historical Museum asks citizens for help with identification of the individuals in a recently discovered group of 39 photographs. Downtown Kings Mountain is prominent in several photographs.

The photographs were donated by Terry Greene in Georgia. He purchased an envelope with these photographs and in it was the name "Carl W. Davidson" of Kings Mountain on the label.

The museum believes they have identified several photographs as Carl W. Davidson and his wife Mary Lou Hord, prominent Kings Mountain citizens who married on October 19, 1926. Carl worked in the designing department at Margrace Mills and was in a fatal car accident on S. Battleground Ave. in June of 1945.

Two photos of interest are of downtown Kings Mountain in the snow. One shot is of Battleground Avenue looking south. The Southern Railway Freight Depot is directly in front, and to the left are downtown shops.

W.A. Mauney remodeled Mauney Brothers Store around 1914, due to a fire. The storefront in this photo is not as ornate as it had been prior to the fire. In fact, it looks much like it does today.

The second photo is of Battleground Avenue looking north. To the right is J.K. Setzer’s Garage. It appears to be located much where the old Wells Fargo building now sits. In a 1925 – 1926 aerial postcard of downtown Kings Mountain, the garage building can be seen clearly, and the cars in the newly discovered photos are from around that period.

In the distance, can be seen Southern Railway Company’s first Overhead Bridge that was constructed in 1919, and is still located just south of W. A. Mauney’s second home on Battleground Avenue. The second Overhead Bridge on King Street was built in 1938.

Looking at the photographic evidence, the group of photos are from after 1919 but before the second Overhead Bridge on Kings Street was built in 1938. Among the group is what appears to be a 1925 Model T Ford. So, narrowing the possible dates even further, it is likely the group of photographs date from the mid1920s.

If you would like to view the newly donated photographs, they are posted on Kings Mountain Historical Museum’s Facebook page.

A patriot woman’s impact on history

March is Women’s History Month, so Kings Mountain National Military Park recently shared a post about a patriot woman of the southern campaign, Rebecca Brewton Motte (1737-1815) of Charleston, South Carolina.

The daughter of a goldsmith, Rebecca inherited extensive properties and was one of the wealthiest individuals in South Carolina. An ardent patriot, she helped supply the Continental army for five years.

In early 1781, British soldiers occupied the plantation and fortified the big house. Rebecca, her children, and domestic slaves, were moved into the overseer’s house. The British soldiers called their new fort, Fort Motte after Rebecca.

Kings Mountain Drug was in business since the 1920’s, founded by Fred Finger. When Fred Finger died the business was purchased by Frank R. Summers. who operated it until 1937 when he sold his interests to Don Blanton and John L. McGill. They changed the name from Summers Drug to Kings Mountain Drug and operated the partnership for 25 years.

C. D. Blanton Jr. assumed his father’s interest following Blanton’s death.

When John McGill retired in 1970, Howard Lutz bought his interest, and the pharmacy continued under that partnership.

Associated with the pharmacy for 35 years, manager for 25 years, was

S. Humes Houston. Staff in 1975 included Mrs. Charles Bagwell. Mrs. Buell Carrigan, Mrs. Giles Strickland. Mrs. Newell Thornburg. Mrs. Merle Valentine,

Ralph Ware, Paul Owens, and Taft Clark.

A partial list of former long term employes includes Mrs. Joyce Phifer, Mrs. Jessie Watterson, Mrs. Helen VanDyke, Miss Peggy Ross, Mrs. Howard McKee, Mrs. Roy Pearson, Mrs. H. D. McDaniel, Mrs. Helen Tate, George Hord, Happy McDaniel, and R. Ragan Harper. Kings Mountain Drug Co. was located at 209 S. Battleground Avenue and by July 10, 1975, had dispensed well over 2,000,000 prescriptions according to a story that ran in the Kings Mountain Herald.

When the British occupied Charleston in June of 1780, she left the city for the safety of her late brother’s Mt. Joseph plantation on the Congaree River, some 95 miles away. It was around this time that her husband, Jacob Motte, who had fought in the Battle of Fort Moultrie in 1776, died of an illness.

In May of 1781, Brig. General Francis “Swamp Fox” Marion, and Lt. Col. “Light Horse”

Henry Lee arrived to lay siege to the fort.

After five days of laying siege to the fort without making an impact in the defenses, Marion and Lee asked Rebecca for permission to burn the home down. Not only did Rebecca

agree, but she also provided the bow and arrows through which it was accomplished, forcing the British to surrender.

According to her grandchildren, Rebecca kept the quiver which she hung on the back of her chair to hold her knitting needles.

Cleveland Co. Animal Services introduces Daisy

Here is info on a very special dog at Cleveland County Animal Care Services, in her own words, “My name is Daisy and I'm a very friendly 5 yr. old Labrador retriever. I have been hanging out here at the shelter since February. I was brought in as a stray and they have spayed me, and I'm microchipped and UTD (that’s shelter lingo for “up to date”) on all my vaccinations! Yes, I have been here too long.”

“Now for the good stuff...I am a very active girl. I love being in the sun and I will lay on my back and scratch to my heart’s content. I do pretty good on a leash, but I do pull. I'm very excited about being outside. I will do the zoomie thing and get out some of my energy, but if you sit down, I will come right up to you and ask for attention,” she says enthusiastically.

“I will take treats very politely and sit when I do it. I would probably do best with someone that has my energy for exercise. I bet I'd do good on walks, and a fenced in yard wouldn't be a bad thing either. If you think I would be a won-

derful addition to your family, come by the shelter and meet me. I would be so happy.”

single women stack up in the U.S. economy

Women’s History Month is celebrated throughout the month of March. Wells Fargo Economics group has released a new report finding that there has been a shift in this structure where more than half of women are single, causing a ripple effect across the economy and leaving a mark on the labor market, wealth, and spending. This is a summary of that report.

For decades, marriage was the most common household structure for women. It has long shaped women’s relationship with the job market and helped propel wealth, in part from married men being the highest income earners of any group and, in more recent decades, through dual-income

households. More broadly, the union brought economies of scale that made large expenditures like housing easier to achieve. But there has been a gradual shift in household structure taking place in the United States. Now, more than half of women are single. The change is rippling across the economy and leaving a mark on the labor market, wealth, and spending.

• A record 52% of women were unmarried or separated in 2021. The rising share of single women households has been driven entirely by women who have never married. Due to women increasingly pushing back marriage or forgoing it all together, the number of never-married women has grown

a staggering 20% over the past decade.

• Single women are providing an outsized lift to the labor force. The number of nevermarried women in the labor force has grown three times faster than the broader labor pool over the past decade. The rapid increase stems from never-married women’s growing ranks, but also larger gains in labor force participation compared to other groups, including never-married men.

• Despite single women becoming increasingly important to the workforce, the pay gap between single men and women persists. Never-married women working full time earned 92.1% of what never-married men earned in

2022, down from 95.8% a decade prior. Meantime, the pay gap between separated, divorced and widowed women and men has been stuck in a narrow range since the Great Recession.

• Lower earnings create an uphill battle for single women to build wealth. Median wealth among single women was 18% lower than single men in 2019. The wealth gap widens to 29% among never-married women, even when controlling for factors like age, education, homeownership, and children.

• Weaker earnings and wealth lead single women to spend less than single men and the average household. The rate of spending growth for single women has kept pace

with broad expenditure gains over the past decade, but this growing group spends differently. Single women devote a higher share of outlays to necessities like housing and healthcare, while over the past decade, expenditures on education and food away from home have grown faster than those of single men.

Overall, single women are becoming an increasingly influential part of the American economy. At a time when employers are struggling to hire and are facing anemic growth in the labor force ahead, the rising number of never-married women, who have higher labor force participation than currently or previously married women, are helping to fill the

void. With more women on their own, singles are also a growing consumer segment. But single women’s increased influence in the jobs market has yet to improve the pay picture relative to men. With little to no progress on the pay gap over the past decade, it remains difficult for single women to save and invest, which keeps them in a more precarious financial position than their married or male counterparts. Narrowing these gaps is important for the financial security of a growing segment of the U.S. population, which could help support businesses with a significant single women customer base.

The Lady Mountaineers took a 10-point win over the host Ashbrook ladies, 10999. Independence finished third with 84 points followed by Shelby 56, North Rowan 54 and Stuart Cramer 47.

The Kings Mountain men finished first with 134 points, 18 better than second place Shelby with 116. Ashbrook ran third with 98 followed by Independence 60, Stuart Cramer 52 and North Rowan 29.

Mountain High’s Lickety

Lew’s Night baseball home opener Wednesday at Lancaster Field.

The Mountaineers had only three hits during the inning with winning pitcher Zane Brockman getting the other two – a single and a double. But the Mountaineers took advantage of seven walks, three wild pitches, a hit batsman and an error while sending 14 batters to the plate.

Brockman gave up just two harmless hits and struck out 11 batters in his four innings on the mound. Aidan Taylor pitched the top of the fifth, fanning one batter and issuing two walks. The Wildcats had runners on first and second with two outs and Levi Barrett at the plate when his ground ball to shortstop hit teammate Davon Garrison on his way to third to end the game.

After Blacksburg’s Kolby Capps beat out an infield grounder to deep short to open the game and was immediately sacrificed to

The bottom of the first saw KM leadoff hitter Jacob Hamrick fly out to medium centerfield, but Capps walked Caleb Broome and

the Mountaineer assault began. Brockman’s single to center and two wild pitches brought Irby in from third for what would be the winning run. Two more walks loaded the sacks and Patrick’s grand slam over the left-centerfield fence moved the score to 5-0. Broome was hit by a pitched ball with the bases loaded to make it 6-0. With the bases still loaded, Brockman doubled to run the margin to 9-0. The Mountaineers scored the game’s final four runs in the bottom of the third when they sent nine men to the plate. An error, infield hit by Hamrick and a walk to Broome loaded the bases. Brockman was hit by a pitch to bring Ellis home with the 10th run. Irby’s single to left ran the score to 12-0 and consecutive walks to Mayes and Patrick accounted for the final run.

Kings Mountain was scheduled to host Gastonia Ashbrook in their first Big South 3A Conference game for last night’s Hotdog Night. The Mountaineers will go to Ashbrook March 17 and will return home March 21 against the Hunter Huss Huskies for a T-shirt Night. Several T-shirts will be given away.

Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers edged a strong Cherryville nine 2-1 in a non-conference baseball game last week in Cherryville. Wyatt Davis pitched five

after two innings. KM tallied the winning run in the top of the fifth. Cherryville loaded the bases in the fourth and seventh innings but couldn’t score. The Ironmen collected

ers issued nine walks. In another non-conference game Friday, the Mountaineers traveled to the mountains and defeated Enka 10-2. Jack Toney was the winning pitcher.

KAYDENCE DAYTON

The first day of spring is March 20

far north as they will go.

can vary from year to year.

Vernal translates to “new” and “fresh,” and equinox derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night).

So, what does that mean? Essentially, our hours of daylight—the

period of time each day between sunrise and sunset—have been growing slightly longer each day since the winter solstice in December, which is the shortest day of the year, at least in terms of light. Even though we know that after December 21, the days start getting steadily longer, we still see more darkness than light over the course of a day in those three months leading up to spring. The vernal equinox marks the turning point

when daylight begins to win out over darkness. At this moment, the direct rays of the Sun are shining down on the equator producing the effect of equal day and night.

After the vernal equinox, the direct rays of the Sun migrate north of the Equator (with hours of daylight steadily growing longer) until they finally arrive at the Tropic of the Cancer (latitude 23.5 degrees north).

The migration of the Sun’s direct rays comes to a halt on that day; this is as

NC Wildlife resources extends Deer Season in Cleveland County

We call this the summer solstice (solstice is a suspension of the migration of the Sun’s direct rays).

It is the longest day of the year in terms of hours of daylight.

After the summer solstice, the direct rays proceed to head south, and the days begin to grow shorter.

It will take another three months, until the autumnal equinox for the periods of daylight and darkness to reach equilibrium once again.

The rays ultimately reach the Tropic of Capricorn (latitude 23.5 degrees south) on the day of the winter solstice and the whole cycle begins again.

There are a few reasons why seasonal dates

The first is…

• A year is not an even number of days, and neither are the seasons.

• Earth’s elliptical orbit is changing its orientation (skew), which causes the its axis to constantly point in a different direction, called precession.

Since the seasons are defined as beginning at strict 90-degree intervals, these positional changes affect the time the earth reaches each 90-degree location in its orbit around the sun.

Second, the pull of gravity from the other planets also affects the location of Earth in its orbit.

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission voted at its business meeting Feb. 23 to adopt eight proposed rules related to wildlife management for the 2023-24 seasons. The proposed fisheries, game lands regulations for the 2023-24 seasons will be considered at an upcoming Commission meeting. Highlights of the rules adopted by Commissioners include:

Deer Either-Sex Seasons: Increased either-sex seasons on private lands in the following counties in the Western and Northwestern Zones:

• Madison County will increase from a 1-day “introductory” to a 6-day “conservative” season (opening day through 1st Saturday).

• Burke, Yancey, Mitchell, Avery and Caldwell counties will increase from a 6-day “conservative” to a 13-day “moderate” season (opening day through 2nd Saturday).

• Polk, Rutherford, and Cleveland counties will increase from a 2-week “moderate” to a 4-week season (opening day through 4th Saturday).

Wildlife Conservation Areas: Changed the dates and areas of restricted access on portions of Wildlife Conservation Areas that are posted as Waterbird NestSee DEER, Page 8B
