Shelby teen drowned in Moss Lake

On Friday, March 17, just before 12:30 p.m., Kings Mountain Police and Cleveland County Emergency Management personnel responded to Moss Lake near 121 Sunshine Ln. in Cherryville, for a search and rescue of an individual that had entering the water, but had not resurfaced. Witnesses told investigators on scene that a black male had jumped off a pier and entered the water. Once in the water the black male began to struggle and soon fell beneath the water’s surface. Cleveland County Emergency Management Director Perry Davis contacted Charlotte Mecklenburg Fire

Department Dive Team to assist in the rescue. Around 3:30 p.m., rescue divers recovered the victim from the lake. The victim was transported to Atrium Health Care in Shelby, and was pronounced dead at 5:03 p.m. The victim has been identified as Jeremiah Roberts, 18, of Shelby.

Kings Mountain Police Department thanks the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department, Cleveland County Emergency Management, Cleveland County EMS, Waco Volunteer Fire Department, and the Charlotte Mecklenburg Fire Department for their prompt response and support during this incident.

Community Worship Services continue

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

The services will be held on Wednesdays at 12 noon in several of your local churches. Because of the continual existence of covid

in our area, there will be no fellowship meals following the services.

Listed below is a complete schedule of the remaining service dates, the host churches, and the ministers who will bring the messages.

GCPD releases video of attempted armed robbery

Detectives from the Gastonia Police Department continue to investigate the March 7 attempted armed robbery of a convenience on S. New Hope Road. On March 15, investigators released surveillance video of the male suspect and his vehicle and ask the public for help identifying either the suspect, the owner of the vehicle, or the identity of a possible additional occupant of the vehicle.

On March 7, at approximately 2:10 a.m., GPD officers responded to the Circle K located at 2434 S. New Hope Road for the report of an attempted armed robbery that just occurred.

During the investigation, detectives determined that the suspect may have initially been a passenger in a vehicle that parked near the store and that the suspect entered the store wearing sunglasses and a mask covering his mouth and nose. The suspect approached a

Gaston County Police Department’s Assistant Chief Nancy Brogdon graduated on March 16 as a member of the 285th session of the FBI National Academy! The 285th session consisted of 237 law enforcement officers from 49 states and the District of Columbia. Nationally, fewer than one percent of officers can attend the program.

Recognized worldwide for its academic excellence, the FBI’s National Academy offers 10 weeks of advanced communication courses, leadership classes, and fitness challenges. Candidates must demonstrate proven records as professionals within their agencies to even be considered for selection into the program. On average, these officers have more than 20 years of law enforcement experience and typically serve in executive-level positions after returning to their respective agencies.

Since its inception in 1935, more than 54,100 public safety professionals have graduated from the

FBI National Academy. The National Academy is held at the FBI Academy in Quantico, VA, at the same facility where new FBI special agents and intelligence analysts receive training and instruction.

Assistant Chief Brogdon joined GPD in 2005, was

promoted to sergeant in 2013, captain in 2020, and assistant chief in 2021. She has served in several positions including patrol officer, community coordinator, grant manager, and coordinator of the Gaston County Gang Initiative, and as a detective specializing

in financial and electronic crimes. Since being promoted to sergeant in 2013 she has served as a patrol sergeant, a community coordinator sergeant, a Criminal Investigations Division sergeant, and as assistant commander of GPD’s Crisis Negotiations Team. She oversaw the department’s Traffic and Canine Units, LeadsOnline, Victim/Witness, and U-VISA programs, and served as commander of the GPD Tactical/ Mobile Field Force Team. Assistant Chief Brogdon is also a graduate of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Command College.

Assistant Chief Brogdon received a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Illinois and a master’s degree in business administration from Pfeiffer University. She also received North Carolina’s Advanced Law Enforcement Certificate. Brogdon is bilingual with fluency in Spanish and English.

Pieces of Kings Mountain History

April 12

marks the 100th anniversary of the Hord Mansion at 100 W. King Street in Kings Mountain. The building has been used as a library since 1947, but it was once the home the family of Dr. Jacob George Van Buren Hord. The family lived there from 1923 until it was sold in the 1940s.

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 written by Davyd Foard Hood. 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, Publisher Haywood Lynch wrote article after article encouraging citizens to open a public library.

In the event the public library did not open in the second-story space do-

nated by Dr. Anthony, but it began operation instead on 15 February 1937 in a room in the building on Cherokee Street occupied as a temporary city hall. While citizens of Kings Mountain were advancing the library initiative in 1936, other city leaders were seeking federal funding for a new town hall. That support was secured and the plans of the new municipal building to occupy the site of the existing town hall in the 100 block of South Piedmont Avenue were in hand and approved by year’s end.

In January 1937 the town offices were relocated temporarily to the Webb building on Cherokee Street, the old town hall was taken down, and construction began on the new building on the eleventh. The scheduled opening of the public library on Monday afternoon, 15 February 1937, was announced on the front page of the Kings Mountain Herald on 11 February.

An account of the opening appeared under the headline, “Public Library Now Open,” in the weekly newspaper on 18 February 1937. Kings Mountain’s Public Library is now open, and everyone is invited to come by and get a book.

About 500 volumes are already on the shelves, and more are on the way. Temporary quarters are at the Town Hall. Mrs. Lois Young, District Supervisor, and Mrs. Jesse O’Shield, County Supervisor of WPA(,) were in Kings Mountain Monday and Tuesday for the opening. They instructed Miss Ida Davis, local Librarian, in the system of keeping the books.

The committee in charge of opening the library are deeply indebted to Mesdames Young and O’Shield for their generous co-operation, in making Kings Mountain’s Library possible. The Board of Trustees of the Library named this week to have supervision for the next twelve months are: Mrs. Hunter Neisler, Rev. W. M. Boyce, Mayor J. E. Herndon and Haywood E. Lynch. Articles on patronage of the library and the acquisition of new books continued to appear in the town’s weekly newspaper through the spring and early summer of 1937 as the new city hall neared completion.

The handsome Colonial-Revival style building, whose architect remains to be confirmed, was accepted by the city in mid-July 1937 and the several offices housed in the temporary municipal

building were relocated to the new Kings Mountain Town Hall in the last weeks of the month. The library was destined to remain in the Cherokee Street building for some time yet. Apparently the “completion” of the building had not included the finishing of rooms in the basement of the new building for the town library. The matter was discussed at the Town Council in August and September and the situation was explained in part in an article, “No Books From Library,” in the Kings Mountain Herald

on 16 September 1937.

Permanent quarters for the Kings Mountain Public Library, the Red Cross Office, and County Welfare Office are now under construction in basement of the new City Hall. Due to that carpenters will be working the balance of this week no books will be let out, but the library will be open to receive books that are due. Plans are now being made for the formal opening of the library in the new quarters shortly.

Meanwhile, on 26 August 1937, a status report on library patronage during its

first six months of operation appeared in the Kings Mountain Herald.

As of 24 August, the book collection totaled 1,350 volumes, the library had issued 1,068 membership cards for borrowing privileges, and a grand total of 9,620 books had been circulated. The library was open for four hours each afternoon, Monday through Friday, and six hours on Saturday.

On 14 October 1937 the Kings Mountain Herald announced the relocation of the library to the new Kings Mountain See PIECES, Page 5A

Silicon Valley Bank and your life savings

If you have worked hard and saved money all your life you may have over $250,000 in a bank. Or, maybe one of these days you might if you keep working and saving.

You most likely know that only $250,000 of your money is federally insured. In other words, if your bank fails you might lose any amount above $250,000. Let’s say you have one half million in your bank. The assets of the bank would eventually be liquidated. If enough money was collected you might receive the rest of your half million or you might never see a penny above the federally insured amount unless you are in Silicon Valley.

The second largest bank failure in U.S. history occurred March 10, in Santa Clara, California. The Silicon Valley Bank failed after a bank run on its deposits. The Depart-

ment of Financial Protection and Innovation revoked its charter and transferred the business into receivership under the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

SVB is the country’s 16th largest bank, with $209 billion in assets and more than $175 billion in deposits.

A number of businesses had millions of dollars in the bank.

Roku had just under $500 million of its $1.9 billion dollars of cash assets in the bank.

Roblox, a video game company said 5 percent of its $3 billion in cash was held at SVB.

Toronto-based AcuityAds Holding had $55 million (U.S.) in SVB, and just $4.8 million (U.S.) elsewhere. That means more than 90 percent of the company’s deposits were held in SVB.

Aerospace manufacturer Rocket Lab held almost 8 percent, or approximately $38 million, of its total cash at the collapsed bank, it said in a recent Friday filing.

‘Crytpo’ lender BlockFi, which filed for

bankruptcy in November, disclosed it held $227 million with SVB in a bankruptcy filing last Friday. BlockFi said in November it had halted withdrawals after facing “significant exposure” to Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX exchange, as well as its sister hedge fund, Alameda.

BlockFi’s money in SVB is not FDIC-insured because it was in a money market mutual fund, the company learned from its bankruptcy trustee early this week. (Source – CNN. com)

tain Public Library. The public library would remain in the municipal building for ten years, until 1947, when the move was made to the former Hord residence. During the first years of this decade Haywood Lynch served as the president of the library and fostered its development with the support of Mrs. Hunter Neisler, the Reverend William Moore Boyce, and James E. Herndon (189_1959), mayor (1933-1939) of Kings Mountain, among others.

On 2 March 1939 the Kings Mountain Herald published a short account of the library’s success under the front-page headline, “Kings Mountain Library Passes Second Milestone.” Four weeks later, on 30 March 1939, the local newspaper published a more comprehensive account of operations under the heading, “Kings Mountain Citizens Are Using Their Public Library.”

By the end of 1939, Miss Ida Davis, having married a member of the Littlejohn family, had resigned her position as librarian. The arrange-

Miss Harrelson is from the National Youth Administration under the direction of Mrs. Frances B. Chewning, County Supervisor, Shelby. Miss Geneva Sheppard, another NYA member (,) will alternate with Miss Harrelson in keeping the library. Each young lady will have charge of the library for two weeks each month.

Mrs. Chewning was happy to cooperate with Kings Mountain Library officials in furnishing two Librarians, and patrons of the Kings Mountain Public Library are very grateful to Mrs. Chewning and the National Youth Administration. The public library steadily grew both its book collection and its patronage by residents of Kings Mountain in the period through World War II under the supervision of Mrs. Bertie Hughes Campbell (190_-1951), who became librarian.

Kings Mountain Little Theatre, Inc. is a volunteer based, 501c3 tax-exempt community theater. It owns and operates the Joy Performance Center and the Liberty Mountain Garden. It is a funded affiliate of the Cleveland County Arts Council and is supported in part by a Grassroots Grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency. For more detailed information, please visit www.kmlt.org or the Kings Mountain Little Theatre Facebook page.

The press of patronage in the limited space available to the library in the basement of the Town Hall and the apparent inability to expand into adjoining parts of the building prompted efforts to secure larger, better facilities for the town library.

On 17 May 1945 the Kings Mountain Herald published a short bulletin of a meeting on the matter. “Some 25 Kings Mountain citizens attended a meeting at the City Hall Tuesday night to discuss plans for expansion of facilities of the Kings Mountain public library. No action was taken with the exception that Mayor J. H. Thompson is to appoint a committee to investigate possibilities and make a recommendation.”

The need would be addressed by circumstance and the magnanimous gift of the Hord house by the children of Jacob Simri and Margaret Juletta Rudisill Mauney in memory of their parents, reflecting the remarkably close relationship of people and place that has always featured in the history of Kings Mountain.

Not Showing Favoritism

“Mom always liked you best.” Remember that line?

Tommy Smothers said it to his brother Dicky on the first episode of the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1967–1969).

Tommy’s reaction is nothing new. Favoritism has been around a long time. Isaac loved Esau best, but Rebekah loved Jacob (Genesis 25:28). First-century Jews associated with

other Jews, but not with Gentiles (Acts 10:28)

In our day, the sting of being shunned or excluded is still felt!

However, there is no place for partiality in the church! For “God is not one to show partiality” (Acts 10:34). He equally and fully welcomes all who repent of sin and trust in Jesus Christ. The gospel of Jesus Christ offers forgiveness for all, acceptance for all, and entrance into the family of God for all.

That’s why James says, “Do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus

Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism” (James 2:1).

And that’s why he exposed this wrong practice in the early church–seating one group (the rich) in the best seats and another group (the poor) on the floor or having to stand (James 2:2–4)

In our churches, we may do well in how we seat people, but what about how we treat people? Do we welcome guests coming through our doors? Do we speak to “new people” on nearby pews? Do we share our names or learn their names?

In short, do we treat others the way we want to be treated when visiting another church?

In my seminary days as a class assignment, my wife-to-be and I visited several churches. More than once, we had the memorable experience of being surrounded by worshippers, who were singing to the Lord energetically and greeting one another enthusiastically, while totally ignoring us!

To borrow a phrase from James— “My brethren, these things ought not be this way!”

It ought to be like the

experience of church members who have said, “I remember my first visit to church and how an usher welcomed me. He’s one of the reasons why I joined the church.” Or “We felt at home from the start. People made us feel so welcome.”

So as we sing “Brethren we have met to worship and adore the Lord our King,” let us also welcome all warmly and fulfill the royal law, the law of our King, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (James 2:8).

• Howser –31 ac- Located near the Northwest

boundary of the park, southwest of Rock House Road, and North of the Stonehouse Branch. Unit is contained by roads and natural boundaries. Northern boundary of this unit is Kings Creek. Rock House Road and the power line make up the eastern boundary. Stonehouse Branch makes up the southern boundary. Sections of Dellingham Rd. and Howser House Rd. form the western boundary.

• Battlefield –175 ac-Located primarily behind the visitor center. The northern boundary of this unit is Colonial Road which branches south onto Yorkville Shelbyville Road. The trail system north from the visitor center serves as part of the Eastern Boundary. Highway 216 (Main Park Drive) comprises the remainder of the eastern, southern, and western boundaries.

• Mineshaft – 39 acNorthcentral portion of the park along Main Park Drive

and the northern boundary. Unit is contained by an unnamed stream which has significant water flow sufficient to contain the fire. Unit is bound to the northeast by the Huffman Hill unit. The Park boundary (Duke Power Right-of-Way) serves as the northwest border of the unit. Private lands are adjacent to this right-of way, access has been granted to utilize the private property owners gate to access this portion of the unit with UTV’s and engine.

Wildland fire crews are working to prepare these units for safe and effective prescribed burns, conducted in accordance with the approved fire management plan and as weather conditions allow throughout the spring season. Surrounding communities may expect minimal smoke and visibility impacts during the burns. Some access to trails and grounds within the burn areas may be temporarily restricted during burn activ-

Camden Battlefield Revolutionary War Soldiers to be honored, reinterred

The South Carolina Battleground Preservation Trust released the schedule of events for the Camden Burials, April 20–22, for the reinterment of the remains of fourteen Revolutionary War soldiers excavated in the fall of 2022.

“Honoring these heroes in a respectful manner and ensuring the permanent protection of their remains is the mission of this effort,” commented Doug Bostick, CEO, South Carolina Battleground Preservation Trust. “Over a period of three days, the public will have numerous opportunities to participate in the ceremonies and pay their respects.”

The weekend of events begins on Thursday, April 20, as the remains of the fourteen Revolutionary War soldiers will be escorted back to Camden. The public is invited to honor these soldiers by assembling on the procession route.

The remains of the soldiers will lie in repose at the Kershaw Cornwallis House. The public is invited to pay their respects starting Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. through midnight Friday. Thursday evening from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., the Revolutionary War Visitor Center will host a panel discussion with Dr. Mattie Atwell, James Legg, Dr. Steven

Smith, and Dr. Bill Stevens about the project and what the forensic and archaeological study has revealed.

On Friday, April 21, reenactors will be assembled to honor the fourteen soldiers at a living history camp at Historic Camden. From 10 p.m. to 8 p.m. the public is invited to visit the camp and interact with the reenactors. On Friday evening, the heralded US Army Old Guard will offer a public concert and a narrated demonstration. The event is free; however, prior registration is required.

Beginning early Saturday morning, April 22, the funeral cortege will leave Historic Camden and make its way to Bethesda Presbyterian Church. The public is invited to watch the cortege along Broad Street and follow the procession to the church. The funeral service will begin at 11:00 AM outdoors at Bethesda Presbyterian Church. At 3:00 P.M. the Burial Honors Ceremony will commence at the Camden Battlefield. The battlefield ceremony is open to the public, but due to space limitations prior online registration is required.

The Camden Burials Project is the result of a significant historic discovery at the Revolutionary War Camden Battlefield. The Trust, acting on behalf

of Historic Camden Foundation, contracted with the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of South Carolina to excavate a number of bodies of Revolutionary War soldiers killed in the August 16, 1780 Battle of Camden.

A team of archaeologists from the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, along with biological anthropologists from the Richland County Coroner’s office and the University of South Carolina unearthed the skeletal remains and accompanying artifacts of 14 Revolutionary War soldiers.

“These young men demonstrated their allegiance in an intense battle for liberty. They are truly America’s first veterans,” said Doug Bostick, CEO, South Carolina Battleground Preservation Trust. “We have a responsibility to honor their sacrifice by ensuring their remains are protected in perpetuity and their stories of bravery are shared.”

Based on preliminary field examinations, the team believes that twelve individuals are Patriot Continental soldiers from either Maryland or Delaware, one is likely a North Carolina Loyalist, and one served with the British 71st Regiment of Foot, Fraser’s Highlanders.

Bostick continued, “When these young men marched into the darkness on that summer night in 1780, they did so out of love for their country despite the consequences that may befall them. Our intent is to lay them to rest with the respect and honor they earned more than two centuries ago.”

The City of Camden and Kershaw County have partnered closely in the planning for the weekend of events. “The City of Camden is deeply honored to host this once in a lifetime event,” remarked Alfred Mae Drakeford, mayor, Camden. “We very much appreciate all that Doug Bostick and his SCBPT team are undertaking to honor our Revolutionary War heroes in such a moving and respectful manner.”

ities for visitor and wildland fire crew safety.

The timing of the prescribed burn implementation is dependent upon a variety of conditions as burns are conducted within specific parameters that consider temperature, relative humidity, fuel moisture, wind speed, and wind direction. The safety of firefighters and the public is the num-

ber one priority of all NPS wildland fire management activities. Informational updates and alerts regarding prescribed burn activities in the park will be posted on the park website and social media.

Fire is an essential and natural process that has shaped the landscape of Kings Mountain National Military Park for thousands

of years. Prescribed burns are conducted in the park to reduce the risk of wildland fire, and to restore native vegetation and historic landscapes. All areas of historic, cultural, and ecological importance are identified and protected throughout the planning and implementation of prescribed burns.

campus and community has welcomed the expanded presence of Chick-fil-A and Starbucks to the Tucker Student Center. Formal ribbon cutting ceremonies to celebrate the popular restaurant and coffee house were held on March 20.

“The addition of a full-service Starbucks and Chick-fil-A restaurant in their student center has been a huge hit with their students, faculty, and staff,” observed Gardner-Webb President Dr. William Downs. “Never underestimate the positive impact that popular food and beverage amenities can have on a college campus. At GWU, we see these upgrades as part of an ongoing process of continuous improvement.

We are also making plans for future enhancements at other campus locations.”

Plans to expand Chick-filA’s menu and bring Starbucks to campus were announced

in March 2022 when Gardner-Webb officials selected Aramark as the new dining services provider. A trusted leader in the industry, Aramark was chosen based on its demonstrated ability to align with GWU’s strategic focus to impact both student success and engagement as well as foster a connected community culture. With the addition of Barnes and Noble managing the University Campus Shop, the Tucker Student Center is now home to three nationally recognized industry leaders.

Chick-fil-A owner Truett Cathy created the perfect recipe for his chicken filet sandwich in 1964 in Hapeville, Ga.

According to the company’s website, the capital A is on purpose—it means “grade A top quality.” The iconic cows came on the scene in 1995, painting the first billboard in Texas with the message: “Eat Mor Chikin.” Serving communities across the country with more than 2,400 restaurants, customers can find Chick-fil-A inside airports, malls, college campuses, in the heart of Manhattan, and nestled among the thousands of busy streets connecting neighborhoods in 47 states and Washington D.C.

In 1971, Starbucks Coffee Company opened its first store in the historic Pike Place Market in Seattle, Wash. The

store offered fresh-roasted coffee beans, tea and spices from around the world. The company’s website says the name was inspired by the classic tale, “Moby-Dick,” evoking the seafaring tradition of the early coffee traders. In 1983, Howard Schultz experienced the coffeehouses in Italy and brought the concept to Seattle. Today, with more than 35,000 stores worldwide, the company is the premier roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world.

Chick-fil-A is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The restaurant is closed on Sundays.

Starbucks’ hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 3 to 10 p.m.

Those attending the career fair can expect to learn about full-time, part-time, seasonal, and work-based learning job opportunities in a wide range of career fields. Several of the fields that will be represented include Health, Manufacturing, Criminal Justice, and Business. Gaston College's

Work-Based Learning and Placement office has organized the event to help pair job seekers with businesses in the area. “Companies are hiring now, and this event gives those looking for work the opportunity to meet and interact with many local employers who want to find the right people to fill their open positions,” said Joy Morrow, Coordinator for WorkBased Learning and Placement.

For more information on the career fair and the participating employers, visit gaston.edu/career-fair.

Military child care initiative launched

Last week, the Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood-PLUS (MCCYN-PLUS) initiative launched in North Carolina to make it easier for military families to access and afford quality child care from community providers.

The program is funded and run by the U.S. Department of Defense and is critical in our state, as North Carolina is home to the fourth largest military presence in the nation. Licensed child care programs can now participate in MCCYN-PLUS based on their rating in the state’s quality rating and improvement program.

This is an expansion of the existing Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood, which requires national accreditation from the U.S. Department of Defense. Under the new PLUS initiative, child care programs in North Carolina can participate if they have a license rated 3 stars or higher. MCCYN-PLUS provides a significant opportunity to increase the number of centers and family child care homes participating in the military child care fee assistance program and increases the number of quality child care options for military families.

Weaver no-hits Huss in opener Big start keys Mountaineers over Ashbrook

Kings Mountain High’s women’s softball team opened its Big South Conference season last week with big victories over Gaston County foes Hunter Huss 21-1 and Ashbrook 21-0.

Senior Kali Weaver pitched a no-hitter in the win over Hunter Huss, striking out 12 of the 17 batters she faced. She walked two.

The Lady Mountaineers struck for 13 runs in the first inning and carried a 21-0 lead into the top of the fourth when the Lady Huskies managed to score their only run. The game ended on the 10-run rule after the Lady Huskies batted in the top of the fifth.

Reynolds led the Lady Mountaineers at the plate with 2-for-2 and four runs batted in. Weaver, Desiree Green, Anna Wooten and Paige Fleming also had two hits. Greene went 3-for-4 with three runs batted in against Ashbrook. Weaver and Reynolds had two hits apiece and Patrick one.

Anna Wooten went 2 2/3 innings on the mound. She gave up two hits and struck out seven.

Kings Mountain is scheduled to go to Forestview Friday for a 6 p.m. game and will return home Tuesday at 6 to host the South Point Lady Red Raiders.

Kali Weaver hurled a no-hitter in last week’s KMHS softball game with Hunter Huss.

Mountaineer track teams open season with sweep of Cleveland, Gaston teams

Despite cold weather, nine area track and field teams had a very competitive meet at Kings Mountain’s John Gamble Stadium last Tuesday.

Kings Mountain batted around in the first inning to take a 5-0 lead and rolled to a 10-0, five-inning victory over the Ashbrook Green Wave in their Big South 3A Conference opener on a bitterly cold Tuesday night at KM’s Lancaster Field.

Jason Melton walked to lead off the bottom of the first, and after a passed ball moved him to second Caleb Broome doubled to right center to plate Melton and the rout was on. The Mountaineers went on to score four more runs as Zane Brockman walked and Cole Irby followed with a hit. Brayden Patrick, who hit by a pitch, tallied the fifth run on a wild pitch.

Kings Mountain added three more runs in the second on a hit by Broome and several wild pitches, hit batsmen and walks.

The Mountaineers scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth to end the game on the 10-run mercy rule. Wyatt Davis and Melton drew backto-back walks and Broome was hit by a pitch before Brockman and Irby singled to get both teams out of the cold.

Broome and Irby had two

hits and two RBIs apiece to lead the five-hit KM attack. Ashbrook pitchers issued nine bases on balls.

See BIG START, Page 3B

The Lady Mountaineers dominated with 140 points to second place Shelby’s 65. Ashbrook and Stuart Cramer came in a close third and fourth with 63 and 62 points, respectively. Cherryville was fifth with 51 followed by Burns 50, North Gaston 47, Crest 35 and Bessemer City 10. Kings Mountain’s women took first in the distance medley relay with a time of 16:34.10.

Middle School tennis beats East Rutherford

Kings Mountain Middle School’s tennis team defeated East Rutherford 8-1 Monday at the KMHS courts. The only loss was at the #3 doubles with a substitution to give some inexperienced players an opportunity to play.

Coach Ed Guy said he is pleased with the progress his young team is making. The Patriots have extended their record to 3-1 on the

season going into a match today at Thomas Jefferson. The Patriots will host Burns Thursday at the KMHS courts.

“Our players who are not starters are getting an opportunity to play matches for the experience,” Coach Guy said. “The number of extra matches depends on how many players the opponents have. With a large team (27 players) it is impossible for

everyone to play in a match, but they are gaining experience to be ready for next year.”

Yetis beat nationally banked opponent

The Cleveland Community College Baseball team won a mid-week shootout versus nationally ranked Florence-Darlington Technical College, 12-8, on Wednesday at Yeti Athletics Park. The Stingers were ranked #7 in the NJCAA Division I national rankings entering the week of March 13.

Both teams would platoon multiple pitchers with Connor Sampers starting the first two innings for the Yetis. Boone Cartee would log three innings in the effort with Gavin Woolery closing out the final inning. Tyler Casciato, Ben

Hemphill, Alex Adams, and Ben Hodge would double from the plate. Alex Khan, Hemphill, Adams and Hodge would drive in two runs each for the offense.

“This was a big win for the program,” said head coach John Grigg. “We were facing an uphill battle against a ranked DI team, and the guys battled to get the win.” The Yetis, who compete as Division II members of the NJCAA, travel for a Region 10 series at Wake Tech Saturday and Sunday.

Military child care initiative launched

Last week, the Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood-PLUS (MCCYN-PLUS) initiative launched in North Carolina to make it easier for military families to access and afford quality child care from community providers.

The program is funded and run by the U.S. Department of Defense and is critical in our state, as North Carolina is home to the fourth largest military presence in the nation. Licensed child care programs can now participate in MCCYN-PLUS based on their rating in the state’s quality rating and improvement program.

BIG START

From Page 1B Brockman worked the first three innings to get the win. He gave up just one hit and struck out eight.

This is an expansion of the existing Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood, which requires national accreditation from the U.S. Department of Defense. Under the new PLUS initiative, child care programs in North Carolina can participate if they have a license rated 3 stars or higher. MCCYN-PLUS provides a significant opportunity to increase the number of centers and family child care homes participating in the military child care fee assistance program and increases the number of quality child care options for military families.

Zane Oakley (KM) lost to Day/Bohealer 9-8.

Extra matches: Tristen Parler lost 9-8; Markie Wampler and Grayson Howell won 8-4; Ben Laurich and Barrett Huffstetler won 6-3. “I thank all the parents who help supply drinks and snacks for the matches and for everyone’s support by attending our matches,” Guy said.

Brayden Patrick came on to pitch the final two innings. He didn’t give up a hit and struck out five. Three Ashbrook hurlers combined for nine bases on balls while fanning just two.

Attorney General Josh Stein issued an alert for citizens to be aware of Brushing Scams. “Our office has been alerted to reports of ‘brushing’ scams.”

Brushing scams occur when a person receives a package from a business containing various items that they never ordered. The packages will be addressed to your residence, but usually do not have a return address or have the return address of a retailer. The scammer typically orders the merchandise using a third-party seller like Amazon or eBay. Their aim is to pose as a verified buyer of that product so they can post a fake positive review online to boost their product rating and popularity.

Although this type of scam seems victimless, it likely means that your personal information has been leaked and is available somewhere online. This information may be your name, address, or phone number. While you may not face any immediate harm from a “brushing” scam, your leaked personal information could set you up for another type of scam or identity theft in the future.

If you receive a package that you did not order yourself, follow these guidelines to protect yourself:

• Notify the retailer. Most

businesses encourage you to report fraudulent activity for security purposes. You should let them know that you received a package based on a fraudulent purchase so that they can take the appropriate steps to prevent it from happening again.

• Do not send money for an unsolicited package. Contact the retailer directly and ask whether they are willing to pay for the return to them or let you keep the product at no cost to you. You should not pay for any return.

• Change your passwords. It is very likely that your personal information has been compromised. You should immediately update your security settings and passwords for accounts you may have with various retailers.

• Monitor your accounts. Keep an eye on your bank statements and credit reports to be sure that your more sensitive personal information has not been leaked. Consider putting a free security freeze in place as well – learn more at www.ncdoj.gov/securityfreeze.

If you think that you or somebody you know has been affected by a brushing scam, contact our office’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-877-5-NO-SCAM or file a complaint online.

Aiming Outdoorsmen Toward Christ

I think of all the hunters who are enjoying the spoils of victory right now. They are making some of the best chili or spaghetti sauce with the ground deer from their freezer. Others are slicing the tenderloin for either a breakfast biscuit or an evening meal. And there’s nothing better than a crockpot full of onions and potatoes slow cooking with a venison ham. My mouth is watering as I type. Not only do we get to enjoy telling the stories of a successful solo harvest, but the results will bring some joyful refreshment for many others and for many months later. Pardon the pun, but I’ve been chewing on the this thought for several days now; the thought of how a seemingly devastating defeat or even a death brings about an even greater fruitfulness.

As most of you know, I believe nature is not by accident. I don’t believe God created something without purpose. I believe the Apostle Paul when he said that creation shows us God’s invisible qualities, his eternal power, and his divine nature. That is, creation is a compass that points us to God. Now fast-forward to me and my deer. My deer died, but in dying became the source of joy for many others. And to this I am reminded of so many illustrations in the Bible about things like the crushing of grapes for wine, being crucified with Christ, and even Jesus’ prophecy concerning his crucifixion. “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives” (John 12:23-24 NIV)

Some of you are in the prime of your life- not only physically, but spiritually. You have been producing great fruit and it seems that it’s been a long time coming. But recently something has brought all of that to a halt. It seems everything you have worked for, or prayed for, or accomplished, has been crushed, or even put to death. You are not wrong. It has. But not so the rest of your life will be UNfruitful, but so it will be MORE fruitful. And while you can’t see it right now and while it really does feel devastating, just remember, God is the one who is overseeing the process you are going through. He is perfect in his work and in his promises. Again, the Apostle Paul confi rmed this. “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Phil 1:6 NIV)

crisis. Even now, BBB Scam Tracker regularly receives reports about pandemic-related scams. Be on the lookout for this common con: phishing messages about at-home COVID-19 tests. How the scam works: You receive a call, get a message, or spot a social media post. You qualify for free athome COVID-19 tests from your insurance or the government. But qualities are limited, and you need to apply immediately.

However, you need to provide a few basic details to receive your tests delivered straight to your door. The form – or, in the case of a phone scam, the caller – asks for your name, contact information, and insurance informa-

tion, including copies of your insurance cards or Medicare number. They may also ask for your credit card number to cover a small delivery fee. If you agree, you’ll hand your sensitive personal information to scammers. Adding insult to injury, you will never receive your tests. They never existed!

One consumer told BBB, “I received two emails from ‘COVID-19 Tests’ indicating that the Biden administration must cover at-home COVID testing kits every month for free. I was asked for personal data, including my address, date of birth, and Medicare card number. When it came time to determine if I qualified, the site would no longer work. I immediately became suspicious. I am afraid I was scammed into providing information that can be used to open accounts in my name.”

How to avoid COVID-19 test scams:

• Want a test? Get one through official sources. Speak with your local pharmacist about purchasing a test or visit Covid.gov/tests to see if your household qualifies for free at-home tests from the government. The FDA also has a list of authorized athome COVID-19 diagnostic tests you can review.

• Do your research. Scammers may pressure you to hand over your personal information, claiming that you’ll lose your chance to

get free tests if you don’t act now. Refrain from giving in to high-pressure tactics; constantly research before you agree to anything. In addition, review this warning from the FDA.

• Understand all your testing options. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a detailed guide to testing for COVID-19. Knowing what tests are available and how to get them will give you the upper hand should you be targeted by a scammer.

• Never share your personal information with strangers. Only make purchases and share your personal information with people and companies you know and trust. Be wary of anyone approaching you with unsolicited offers, whether over the phone or otherwise. If you suspect your personal information has been compromised, report it to identitytheft.gov.

• Don’t click on links in text messages or emails from strangers. Scammers often send links to their victims as a part of phishing scams. Such links might send you to an imitation website where scammers try to collect your personal information, or they could download malware onto your computer or mobile device, which will also put you at risk for identity theft.

Atrium Health & Best Buy Health partner to enhance Hospital at Home experience

Special to the Herald from Atrium Health

Atrium Health has been on the leading edge of virtual care for years, including standing up a hospital at home program in less than three weeks during the early stages of the COVID19 pandemic to lessen hospital overcrowding.

It now has the largest, most successful hospital at home program in the country, capable of caring for such conditions as heart failure, COPD, pneumonia, asthma, various infections, and other medical and post-operative conditions using wearable technology, virtual visits with providers and twice-daily home visits from Atrium Health community paramedics.

"When they said, ‘would you like to do this at home?’ I said, absolutely,” says Derrell Hollifield, an 84-year-old Atrium Health hospital at home patient. “It really blows my mind. I'm not much on electronics, but this is unreal.”

In February, Atrium Health added new technology enhancements to its program, partnering with Best Buy Health.

“This is the coming together of technology and empathy,” says Dr. Rasu

Shrestha, executive vice president and chief innovation and commercialization officer for Advocate Health, which Atrium Health is a part of. “We're able to leverage the power

The new technology is quickly winning over those who have encountered it.

“With this new Current Health technology, we're able to monitor vital signs continuously, at all times, just like you would in a hospital setting,” says Manny Mill, an Atrium Health community paramedic. “With this new device, you just put it directly on their arm and you're able to kind of see everything all at once.

“Anything that you would normally do in an in-patient setting, you can do here,” he adds. “We can get an EKG if needed; we can draw labs; we can give basically any medication that you would normally give in a hospital setting.”

“We give the patients a chance to come home, and we treat them in their home just like they would be in the hospital,” says fellow Atrium Health community paramedic John Turner.

“We see them twice a day. They get to talk to a doctor every day through a video conference call. They also have a nurse, 24/7 and it's just a great opportunity for

them to get the care that they need at home.”

"At first, I thought, how am I going to know what to do? What all to do, you know, with the medicines and the vitals and all that,” says patient Gena Kinsey. “But it's very simple and they help you in any way that they can. If anything happened, they're coming out to check on me, or I can make a phone call to my nurse any time. You know you're being taken care of, just like you were in the hospital. And, it's easy to do.”

“I'm glad to be able to be home,” says Atrium Health hospital at home patient James McGee. “I feel more comfortable here than I would there and don't get woke up as much.”

He also notes that, as someone who lives in a rural community – roughly 30 miles from the nearest hospital, the added convenience of receiving his care at home makes a big difference for him and his family.

“My son doesn’t get off until 6 or 7 o’clock at night,” McGee adds. “By the time he gets off, he can’t come see me (in the hospital). My wife doesn’t like to drive in traffic, so she isn’t out on the road driving. That means a lot to me. Plus, we’re on a fixed income, so it also saves money on gas.”

“Roughly a quarter of Atrium Health hospital at home patients are underserved or atrisk populations,” says Colleen Hole, an Atrium Health vice president, and the administrator of its hospital at home program. “In addition to providing the convenience of high-touch service delivered in the home,

Atrium Health community paramedics are trained to identify potential challenges to a patient’s health, such as food insecurity, unsafe housing, risks of falls in the home and patients being unable to afford their medications, just to name a few,” she said.

“When these types of challenges are identified, our care team engages an Atrium Health hospital at home social worker who can connect the patient

As his afternoon visit with Mill, the community paramedic, progresses, McGee marvels at the simplicity of the core hospital at home technology – an electronic blood pressure cuff and an armband with a “puck” that communicates with a tablet computer.

“It's a transmitter that transmits everything,” he says. “It reads into my little laptop computer and the doctor can read it, just like at the hospital. I don't know a thing about a computer, but I trust this.”
