Governor vetoes Free the Smiles Act Gove r n o r Roy Cooper vetoed the Free the Smiles Act on Thursday, February GOV. COOPER 24. The bill would have given parents the right to opt out of student mask mandates for their children. Governor Cooper made the following statement regarding the veto saying, “"I have encouraged local

boards to lift mask mandates and they are doing it across the state with the advice of TIM MOORE health officials who see that COVID metrics are declining, and vaccinations are increasing. The bipartisan law the legislature passed, and I signed last year allows local boards to make these decisions for their own communities and

that is still the right course. Passing laws for political purposes that encourage people to pick and choose which health rules they want to follow is dangerous and could tie the hands of public health officials in the future." North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore said, "I am disappointed that Governor Cooper has vetoed this common-sense bill. All health care decisions for our students belong with their parents, not with politicians or bureaucrats." He continued, "Ac-

tions speak louder than words, and the governor should do more than 'encourage' schools to lift their mask mandates. Return this decision back to parents."

The NC Homeowner Assistance Fund is now accepting applications from North Carolina homeowners whose finances were impacted by the pandemic and who need assistance with housing-related expenses. Established through the 2021 American Rescue Plan to prevent mortgage delinquencies, defaults, displacements and foreclosures for homeowners experiencing financial difficulties due to the coronavirus pandemic, the fund offers assistance of up to $40,000 for qualified homeowners as long as funding is available. This is a state-level program and is NOT administered through Gaston County DSS. For qualified homeowners, the fund offers: Housing payment assistance for primary residence in North Carolina (for example, single-family home, townhome, condo or mobile home). Assistance for mortgage reinstatement to catch up on late payments (first or second mortgages) or other housing-related costs due to a period of forbearance, delin-

quency or default. Assistance covering other housing-related costs such as homeowner’s insurance, flood insurance, mortgage insurance, homeowner’s association dues/fees or delinquent property taxes to prevent foreclosure. Homeowners may be eligible for assistance if they are experiencing financial hardship due to job loss or business closure, reduction in hours or pay, difficulty obtaining new employment, death of a spouse or co-borrower or increased expenses due to the pandemic. Increased expenses can be due to health care, the need to care for a family member, increased child care costs due to school closures or increased costs associated with quarantine. Applicants must be seeking assistance for a primary residence in North Carolina and meet income and other requirements. Homeowners can learn more and apply for help by calling 1-855-MY-NCHAF (1-855-696-2423) or by visiting

CDC relaxes indoor mask mandates, but not for Cleveland County By Loretta Cozart The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday it has revised its mask guidance for communities where hospitals are not under high strain. But, according to the new guidelines, in Cleveland County the risk is high and relaxing of mask mandates is not recommended. In fact, seventy-four of North Carolina’s 100 counties are at high risk. The CDC recommends counties with a high risk to wear a mask indoors in public, stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, get tested if you have symptoms, and that additional precautions may be needed

for people at high risk for severe illness. According to the CDC’s website Sunday, in the last seven days Cleveland County has experienced 203 COVID cases with a 7.29% positivity. Nine new hospital admission occurred, and only 52 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated. These recommendations were determined using new metrics, called COVID-19 Community Levels. An area is deemed elevated risk if it has concerning levels of COVID19 hospital admissions and hospital capacity taken up by COVID-19 patients. About 38% of U.S. counties are in this new high-risk category, where

The Cleveland County Library System in partnership with NCWorks WIOA NextGen Youth Program and Cleveland Community College Small Business Center will host a four-session Workshop series on Entrepreneurship for youth between the ages of 14 to 24 years old.

Light refreshments will be served. There is no cost for these workshops. The Cleveland County Youth Entrepreneurship Program (CCYEP) will focus on providing an introduction to entrepreneurship, creating a business plan, designing a prototype, and building a prototype using a 3D printer, heat press, and other materials available in the library’s Makerspace. This four-week workshop series will aim to be an experiential learning op-

portunity that is designed to provoke young people with thinking “outside the box” strategies to creating useful, marketable, and consumer products. The main objective of these workshops is to not only give participants a framework for pursuing entrepreneurial ventures, but to give them the tools to construct a viable plan in which they can pursue the opportunity. During the first two sessions, students will be introduced to the entrepreneurial mindset. During the last two sessions, students will rapidly prototype their own innovations as they learn about different aspects of entrepreneurship from personal branding, leadership, and how to start their own businesses. At the end of the fourweek program, participants will leave with a clear understanding of their own entrepreneurial orientation and the potential gaps that exist between their capabilities and what is needed to be a

successful entrepreneurial and leader. They will also be empowered to transfer ideas into business opportunities, which is the core ideal of entrepreneurship. The Cleveland County Library System and their partners are committed to empowering the youth in Cleveland County in gaining knowledge and capacity in the areas of entrepreneurship, social innovation, and global leadership. All of the workshops provided will be structured in ways to deliver fun and interactive activities while teaching the participants critical skills and valuable life lessons such as intrinsic motivation, passion, self-esteem, teamwork, and initiative. All interested youth must register as space is limited. For registration or for more information, call Wright Adams at the Cleveland County Library System at 704-487-9069 or WIOA Youth Case Manager Robin Bamberg at 910-7343339.

mask-wearing is recommended, but these counties account for only 28% of the population. The CDC will release updated county-by-county risk levels weekly on its website, officials said. You can explore Cleveland County's current level by visiting https://www. and clicking on Learn More. Updates will be released weekly. According to the CDC, “Everyone in Cleveland County, North Carolina should wear a mask in public, indoor settings. Mask requirements might vary from place to place. Make sure you follow local laws, rules, regulations, or guidance.” According to the CDC’s new metric, seventy-four of North Carolina’s 100 counties are at high risk and should wear masks indoors.

The text message might read something like this: “Hi Chris, I’m tied up in a conference call right now but let me know if you get this text. Thanks [your boss’ name].” If you reply that you received the text, you’ll be asked to do a quick task. This could be purchasing gift cards for a client or wiring funds to another business.

enough, but today signatures on 10 contracts will not bind the larceny and greed in a person’s heart. “False accusers”, it is a sad commentary but true, people will outright lie on almost any subject. I do not mean misunderstand, No they’ll hatch it out of thin air then repeat it, repeat it, repeat it, till they’re convinced the lie is the truth, “incontinent”; no self-control. Addicted to alcohol, drugs, porn, internet, cell phone and just out of control until they destroy themselves - “fierce and despisers of people who are good”. They’ll curse you, oppress you, try to insult you, intimidate you, even physically attack you, for no apparent reason than they hate people who try to be good and

Raging Insanity T h e Apostle Paul wrote with prophetic insight of our times, II Timothy 3:1; Roger R. “This k n o w Woodard, ThD. Senior Pastor also that Family Worship Center in the last days perilous times shall come.” The shall is a powerful word that means must. The word for perilous appears only once in the New Testament, but is kindredly referenced

in Matthew 8:28. It records two devil possessed men “exceeding fierce” they terrorized travelers and allowed no one to pass. The analogy for our “perilous” times is chalepos, meaning, dangerous, furious, fierce, from chaleo “to let down, to lower” raging insanity, exemplified with self love. Humanism is perhaps the greatest religion of today’s world. ‘Covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemous’, (isn’t it interesting pagans like to use the name of Christ to swear with?); ‘disobedient to parents, (many parents are too corrupt to be obe-

dient to) “unthankful” (we live in the greatest country history has ever seen. People throng our borders to get here and take advantage of our generosity and freedoms, then bad mouth this nation – despicable) ‘unholy’ (calling good evil and evil good Isaiah 5:20), “without natural affection”, which means “hardened toward kindred”. Could there be anything more unnatural than a mother killing her unborn child? We hear regularly of child murdering a parent and vice versa. “Trucebreakers; there was a time a handshake and a person’s word were

Wednesday, March 2, 2022 live right. “Traitors” Jesus warned in the last days, Matthew 24:10-12, “then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many fake prophets shall arise and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound the love of many shall wax cold. “heady high minded” - narcisstic full of self, self-promoters and sickening to witness and especially to be around. “lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God”. So many who claim Christ fit this category. Good church goers, but not if it conflicts with the Panthers, Hornets or our favorite first love, beach, mountains, fishing, hunting, golf, etc. This verse doesn’t say they don’t

love God, they just love pleasure more. “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such turn away”. What we are experiencing and witnessing before our very eyes is “raging insanity”. Oh, how I could write more but space does not permit. However, if you claim Christ as Lord and Savior. Our God puts the finger of blame squarely on our chest and proclaims, “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways. Then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” II Chronicles 7:14. No wiggle room there, Brothers and Sisters.

Cleveland Community College Pharmacy Technician Academy expanding again The Pharmacy Technician Academy became part of CCC’s job training offerings about five years ago. Since that time, the Academy has grown and even expanded into a second opportunity, the Sterile Compounding class. Now, the Pharmacy Technician Academy is expanding again, this time to a new audience. Cleveland County high school students can now register for the Academy. Eight students enrolled in the inaugural class this spring. The Academy is an opportunity for students to explore a healthcare career, for free, and at the end of the course have a marketable skill. “A lot of high school students don’t know exactly what careers they are interested in,” said Instructor Mark Woodall. “The advantage of doing the Pharmacy

Technician Academy is that pharmacy touches almost all aspects of healthcare, so this may help guide them. Plus, it will be beneficial in all areas.” The Pharmacy Technician Academy trains students to become certified pharmacy technicians. They learn about the history and evolution of pharmacy, anatomy, pharmaceutical calculations, prescription processing, patient safety, sterile and non-sterile compounding, and more. Most graduates of the Academy sit for the certification exam and begin a career as a Certified Pharmacy Technician. Others use what they learn as a foundation for pharmacy school, nursing school, research, or another area of healthcare.

Parents and students can learn more about the Pharmacy Technician Academy available for high school students on CCC’s website. High school students interested in enrolling in the Pharmacy Technician Academy should talk to their school’s Career Coach or email ccp@clevelandcc. edu. For adults, there are day and night classes offered during the fall, spring, and summer terms. To learn more, visit program/pharmacy-technician. Check out the Bureau of Labor Statistics website for more information on job outlooks and salary information for pharmacy technicians and other careers.

‘Hats Off!’ exhibit featured now at KMHM Ballcaps, beanies, cowboy hats – people today often choose a wide variety of headwear. But just like any aspect of fashion, what people wear on their heads has changed a lot through the years. The Kings Mountain Historical Museum (KMHM) is exploring this topic in its new exhibition, “Hats Off! A History of Headwear,” which opened on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, and will be on exhibit through May 14, 2022. “The production and use of hats has seen cultural and social changes throughout history,” says January Costa, KMHM director and curator. “In the past, hats were usually more about fashion than function.” Costa says that the KMHM has collected a variety of hats and head coverings over the years as part of the museum’s overall effort to preserve the area’s history. “This exhibit will feature highlighted pieces from our collections and explore the history of headwear and its place in our culture,” says Costa. “We will examine the creation and evolution of hats, symbolism and style, and how they are an expression of functionality and form.” In addition to hats, the exhibit also includes hat boxes, advertisements, newspaper articles and several illustrations by the artist Lori McAdams. “We are very excited to have McAdams’ work as part of our display,” says Costa. McAdams is an artist and designer in the Charlotte area. Her educational background includes a BFA from Parsons School of Design and an MA from UNC-Charlotte. Her background is in traditional art and illustration. “McAdams’ illustrations of hats really fill out our exhibit and allow viewers to see a wide variety of styles and fashions in headwear through the years,” says Costa. Admission is free for the exhibit, and museum hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. each day. The museum is located at 100 East Mountain Street in Kings Mountain. For more information, visit the museum’s website at or contact the museum by calling (704) 739-1019.

Gaston College student Phelps wins Pinnacle Classical Academy Spelling Bee participates in NASA virtual experience Gaston College student Trenton Laws was selected out of hundreds of community college students across the country to attend the NCAS virtual experience from Feb. 2-8 and won the mission challenge with his team. This was a dream come true for Trenton, who says he hopes to work for NASA one day. Laws earned his spot in the program after successfully completing a five-week online NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars (NCAS) course. The NCAS virtual experience teaches students about NASA’s missions and careers in science and engineering. The selected students work in teams to design a mission to explore the moon or Mars. In designing the mission, students learn how to manage a budget, develop communication, and plan outreach strategies. Laws said his team wanted to build a mission that NASA has not done before so they could truly put their knowledge to the test. He and his team won the challenge by creating a mission where people were sent to Mars. “It was honestly kind of a shock in a way. I couldn’t really believe it when I was accepted into the program, and then winning everything was also exciting,” said Laws. “I yelled and screamed at my computer when I saw

TRENTON LAWS my team won.” Laws studies engineering at Gaston College and is part of the SPARC Scholars program, a scholarship program for STEM students. He says his love for NASA and space comes from history and reading where people traveled and how they discovered the places we know today. “Space is the next step of that,” said Laws. “I want to be a part of going to places people have never been before.” The Minority University Research and Education Program, or MUREP, funds NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars. MUREP commits to engaging underrepresented and underserved students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) with authentic learning experiences to sustain a diverse workforce. “NCAS inspires community college students to advance in STEM fields, and it also opens doors for future careers at NASA. NCAS alumni can often

move on to NASA internships and possibly ultimately enter the NASA workforce. It is rewarding to see the progression of a student from NCAS participant to NASA colleague,” says Torry Johnson, Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) Manager. Gaston College is one of fifty-eight community colleges in the North Carolina Community College System and was recognized as the #1 Apprenticeship Partner and #1 Customized Industry Training Program in 2021. Serving both Gaston and Lincoln counties, Gaston College enrolls approximately 5,350 students each term in curriculum programs and averages over 12,400 annually in its Economic and Workforce Development and Continuing Education programs. Gaston College offers over 100 fields of study to obtain a degree, diploma, or certificate.

If a request comes from a strange number or just doesn’t sound right, call or email your boss first, using their real contact information, rather than replying to the message. It’s better to double check than to rush into a scam. Plus, your boss

will want to know if they are being impersonated, so they can warn their other employees. • If you suspect a scam, don’t reply. If you are fairly certain you’ve been contacted by a scammer, don’t reply to the text message. Replying lets scammers know they have an active phone number and could leave you vulnerable to future attacks. Instead, block the number and delete the message.

Patriots go perfect 14-0 to win Tri-County Conference Kings Mountain Middle School’s Patriots finished off an undefeated 14-0 season to win the Tri-County Conference championship with 56-53 and 59-57 victories over Crest and Shelby, respectively, in the semifinals and finals of the conference tournament last week.

Their banner season began in early January with non-division wins over the same two county rivals – 56-50 over Crest and 51-36 over Shelby. The Patriots had an easier time with most of their Eastern Division opponents, but did have one close game

with North Lincoln which they won 63-55. Before beating Shelby’s Blue Devils in the conference championship game in Shelby, the Patriots had a close call with Crest on the KM court. The Patriots got off to a roaring start, jumping

ahead on Bradley Floyd’s 3-pointer, Charlie Foster’s lay-up and a finish at the rim by Brayden Mull for a 9-0 lead. Crest came back to cut the margin to 15-7 at the end of the first period. The second quarter saw KM grow cold from the

field and Crest get hot from the outside. Foster’s four points accounted for two of the three KM buckets as Crest battled back to tie the game at 17-all. The Dragons went on to lead 29-24 at the half. The third quarter saw KM get going as Tucker

Robinette’s steal and finish for a one-and-one cut the margin to two. Robinette and Floyd continued the KM run, combining for 14 points to cut the Crest lead to 39-38 going into the fourth quarter. The final period saw a See PATRIOTS, Page 2B

KM basketball teams bow out in first round of state playoffs Kings Mountain High’s basketball teams bowed out in the first round of the NCHSAA 3A playoffs last week at Donald L. Parker Gymnasium. The Lady Mountaineers fell to a good Canton Pisgah team 63-54 in the opener before the Mountaineers went down to a very tall and talented Southern Guilford squad 65-52. Despite the losses, both KM teams had very good seasons. The girls shared the Big South 3A Conference championship with a strong Gastonia Ashbrook five and the boys finished second to perennial state power Crest. Both the boys and girls played tough the entire way and saw their visitors break open close games at the very end. See PLAYOFFS, Page 3B

Six former Mountaineer greats will be inducted into the Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame Saturday, May 7 at 6 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church. They are former KMHS basketball stars Sharon Gold and Sheryl Goode, the late KMHS and Appalachian State University football standout Jim Cloninger, former Mountaineer All-State football great Mariko Feemster, former KMHS state championship wrestler Tony Young, and former KMHS and Gardner-Webb threesport standout and current KMHS assistant principal Tandra Leftwich. Gold was a three-time All-Conference basketball star at KMHS in the 1960s. During that time, the only sport for women was basketball. She scored a school-record 1,029 points, breaking Hall of Famer Judy Medlin’s school record by a point. Cloninger was also a star in the sixties. His senior year he helped lead the KMHS football and basketball teams to conference championships. An end and punter, he was All-Conference, All-State and played in the Boys Town AllStar game in 1965. He started as a freshman at Appalachian State in 1965 before injuries ended his career. Goode was an All-Conference basketball player at KMHS in 1981, helping the team to its best record in school history at that time.

She went on to play four years at Johnson C. Smith where she scored 428 points with 314 rebounds in 91 games. She helped lead her team to a 17-9 record and an appearance in the NCAA tournament in 1985. Feemster, an offensive lineman, was All-Conference and All-State for Ron Massey’s 1998 state runner-up football team at KMHS. He capped off his high school career as a North Carolina all-star in the annual Shrine Bowl game. He gained significant playing time his freshman year at UNC Chapel Hill before injuries ended his career. Leftwich was a three-year All-Conference volleyball and softball player at KMHS from 1989-92 and was state diving champion in ’92. She was a three-year All-Conference volleyball and softball player at Gardner-Webb from 1992-94. Young registered 112 wins as a heavyweight wrestler at KMHS from 1989-92. He was a three-year conference and Western Regional team and state champ and All-State in 1992. He led the Mountaineers to three straight conference and regional championships and a state runner-up in 1990. His senior year, his back-up at heavyweight was Dremiel Byers who would go on to win numerous state and national championships and compete for the U.S. in the Olympics

Kings Mountain High’s baseball team will open the home portion of its 1922 season at Lancaster Field Thursday at 7 p.m. in a special black and gold night against the Shelby Lions. “This is going to be a good night for us,” says KM Coach Brad Melton. “We’re going to be wearing the old 1989 style gold jerseys with

black pants.” Most longtime Mountaineer fans will remember that uniform, and hopefully that season. That’s when they won their first of two state 3A championship in a five-year period under the late Coach Bruce Clark. Melton hopes the uniforms bring them some of that same kind of success.

The Mountaineers went through a pair of scrimmages last week and were scheduled to open the regular season last night at Burns. “We did fine in the scrimmage last Tuesday,” Melton noted. “The pitching did fine. We played everybody and used seven different pitchers. I think we

will be okay in the pitching department.” Melton welcomes back several players that helped the team make the state 3A playoffs last season, and he’s hoping they will not only make the post-season again but also make a strong bid for the BSC title. Melton has three of last See BASEBALL, Page 2B

PATRIOTS From Page 1B frenzy of action as the lead changed hands seven times. KM went on an 8-1 run to start the period as Robinette, Floyd and Foster all finished at the rim, followed by a Caleb Nixon three for a 47-41 KM lead with just under five minutes remaining. Crest came back with seven straight points to take a 48-47 lead with three minutes to play. Robinette’s three put the Patriots back on top 50-48. A Floyd put-back and Mull’s steal with just over a minute to go made the score 54-51 and a pair of Floyd free throws with 12 seconds left sealed the win at 56-53. Robinette finished with 11 points on 4 for 8 shooting, and also dished out four assists. Floyd scored 23 points on 7 for 15 shooting and had 11 rebounds, nine assists and hit 8 of 8 free throws. Caleb Nixon scored three points, Charlie Foster had 12 points and eight rebounds, and Brayden Mull seven points and 14 rebounds. As a team, the Patriots had 35 rebounds including 12 offensive, 14 assists, hit 12 for 13 from the foul line, and were perfect from the foul line and three-point line in the second half. KM hit 11 of 17 shots in the second half. “The kids were resilient tonight,” noted Coach Cole. “We could’ve easily folded after halftime when we were down five, but my guys kept fighting back. When Crest hit four threes in a row to end the half it just showed the determination this team has. To be able to keep our poise and shoot the ball the way we did in the second half was just amazing.” It was another nail-biter in the championship game at Shelby with the lead changing hands numerous times. Floyd’s steal and pass to Robinette for a lay-up got the Patriots off to a 2-0 start. An offensive put back by Foster and Mull’s finish at the rim and a short jumper by Nixon gave the Pats an 8-2 lead. Floyd’s layup on KM’s next possession moved the score to 10-5 and KM went on to lead 14-12 at the end of the quarter. All five starters got in the action as KM hit five of six shots. Shelby went on a 21-4 run in the first four minutes of the second quarter before back to back threes by Floyd and Nixon along with Christian Jarrett’s fast

break layup cut the deficit to 33-26 at the break. KM was able to get within six as Foster’s jumper and Tate’s layup drew KM to within 36-30 with four minutes to play in the third quarter. Shelby finished the quarter on an 11-5 run to lead 47-35 going into the fourth. Shelby extended its lead to 49-35 with 5:50 to play before KM mounted a ferocious comeback. Floyd’s back to back offensive put backs followed by a Robinette steal and layup and a Foster assist to Mull led to an 11-2 run for the Patriots which cut the lead to 51-46 with under three minutes to play Thirty seconds later a Robinette three made it 5249, and KM cut the lead to 55-52 after a Floyd layup and Robinette free throw with just over a minute left. Two more free throws by Mull made it 55-54 with 33 seconds left. On KM’s next possession Robinette’s pass found Floyd in the high post for a layup to put KM on top for the first time since early in the second quarter, 56-55. After two Shelby free throws put them back on top 57-56 with 13 seconds left, Floyd came back down court and gave the Pats the lead on two free throws with seven seconds left, followed by his steal and another free throw for the final score. Floyd finished with 19 points on 7 for 13 shooting, and also contributed 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks. Nixon had seven points and three rebounds, Robinette eight points, three assists, two steals and a block, Foster 11 points, eight rebounds and six blocks, Mull eight points and eight rebounds, Tate two points and Christian Jarrett four points. KM had 31 rebounds, nine blocks and 10 assists and shot 19 for 38 from inside the arc and 46 percent for the game. KM’s defense held Shelby to 33 percent shooting in the second half and KM was 8 for 12 in the fourth quarter. KM hit 12of 14 from the free throw line in the second half, including 7 of 9 in the final quarter. “All I can say is wow,” said head coach Chris Cole. “These boys are phenomenal. After we got outscored 24-4 at the end of the first quarter and beginning of the second and not faltering is just a testament to our guys. They never quit all season when things got bad. “Hats off to Shelby. They played a great game and went down fighting. Our guys were so close the last two years. I’m so proud of them.”

Assistant coach Corey Nixon added, “I’m so proud of this bunch. It was a vision we had with our eighth grade group when they were in the sixth grade. To win the championship while going undefeated, you were definitely able to see our talent and experience meet.”

Coach Brandon Foster noted, “these kids started in the sixth grade with a goal to win the Tri-County championship. Their hard work off the court showed to be the recipe for success. “Whether it was fighting back from being down in a game or pushing through

injuries, they found a way to be 14-0. We are Kings Mountain strong.” The Patriots will be sending six players (Charlie Foster, Bradley Floyd, Ty Howard, Caleb Nixon, Tucker Robinette and Aiden Smith) on to the next level next season and

will return seventh graders Coryon Gaines and Chris Hill and sixth graders Silas Tate, Christian Jarrett and Brayden Mull. Managers were Jamerson Hamrick, Joseph Johnson and Marquise Thomas and score keeper was Maurice Tate.


among the team’s leaders at the plate and in the field. “Brockman is back for his third year as a third baseman and pitcher,” Coach Melton noted. Some other returning starters who should do well are senior outfielder Maddox Brown, Jacob Hamrick, who was an All-Conference and AllState outfielder, and led the team in hitting last year. Junior right hander Wyatt Davis led the team in innings pitched last year, and Melton said he will be a starter this time around. Other versatile returnees include junior catcher/ outfielder Cole Irby and second baseman/shortstop/ pitcher Blake Broome. “A new guy who will help us a lot is sophomore Ethan Guy,” Melton noted. “He’s a utility player. He can catch and play any-

where in the infield, and he hits the ball very well.” Colton Mayes is another sophomore who will be counted on at first and third base. “He also hits the ball really well,” Melton noted. Brayden Patrick, who has a good arm and good speed, will be in the outfield; and freshman Jack Toney should play a lot at first base and is also a good pitcher, Melton noted. “It’s going to be a tough race in the Big South Conference,” Melton says. “Crest is always good. They have a new coach this year. South Point has joined the conference and they’re always really good in baseball, and North Gaston is always very competitive. “The key for us will be pitching,” he added. “It should really be good and will keep us in every game.

If we can score four or five runs we can win. “The other key will be hitting,” he added. “If we’re hitting the ball we’ll be very good. Peyton Fisher is really going to help us this year. We expect a lot of good things out of him. He’s thrown a couple innings in the scrimmages and looked good. It’s good to have an experienced lefthander. “By far, pitching is our strength but our defense is pretty solid, too. Hitting was our big problem last year. We need to cut down on the strikeouts and put the ball in play. If we can hit the ball we’ll be a big out. Charlie and Brockman will probably be our aces and Fisher and Davis the closers. They’ve all looked good so far.”

From Page 1B year’s top pitchers returning, including his son Charlie Melton, junior Zane Brockman who committed to NC State his freshman year, and southpaw Peyton Fisher. Melton was an All-State pitcher last year, Brockman the Big South Pitcher of the Year, and Fisher a key relief pitcher and a starting outfielder. “Peyton got a late start because he advanced to the championship match in the state wrestling tournament,” Coach Melton noted. “But he’s going to be a big contributor. He just has to get back into baseball shape.” All three play other positions as well and will be

dox James, both seniors. Cannedy, who averaged 33 points a game, was also voted by the BSC coaches as Player of the Year. Wilson and King helped the Lady Mountaineers to a share of the BSC title with Ashbrook. That was just KM’s third conference championship ever, with Wilson starting on two of them her freshmen and senior years.

From Page 1B The Lady Mountaineers, who won their second conference championship in the last four years for two of their three in history, fell behind 18-12 in the first quarter but battled back to take a 31-27 lead at the break. But, with KM up 46-43, Pisgah had two threes in the final 24 seconds of the third period to take a 49-46 lead into the final chapter. Leading by just 52-50 with 6:55 to go, Pisgah went on a 7-0 run that basically wrapped up the win at the 3:45 mark. They went on to lead by 10 (62-52) before Wilson got the last bucket of her brilliant career with 2:17 remaining. With the loss, the Lady Mountaineers still had an outstanding season with all of their losses coming to very good teams. Wilson led the scoring with 20 points and also had four rebounds and three steals. Khalia King was the only other double-digit scorer with 12 points. She had two boards and three assists.

Alyssa Smith had 13, Dot Mills 12 and Emma Deaver and Chloe Burch 11 apiece. The boys game also was close for 3 1/2 quarters before the visitors broke it open. Leading by just 44-41 going into the final eight minutes, Southern’s tall inside players dominated the boards and their point guard Khalil Millner hit some big three pointers to win the game going away. The Southern defense did an outstanding job on KM’s leading scorer, Zeke Cannedy, whose 15 points shared team scoring honors with Jaquaylin Sanders but were 20 points below his per game average. Cannedy’s three-pointer got the Mountaineers to within 46-44 with seven minutes remaining but the visitors went on an 11point run to go up 57-44 with three minutes left that put the win in the bag.

North Elementary School events By Loretta Cozart North Elementary School in Kings Mountain had a busy two weeks, beginning with their Spelling Bee on Wednesday, February 16. Congratulations to James Welsh for being the North Spelling Bee winner. Heidi Parker was the runner up. James will compete in the County Bee on March 23. On Thursday, February 24, North School wel-

comed Hugo and the Book Bus from the Charlotte Hornets. Teachers were looking for Buzzing Good Readers during the day and those names were placed in the Buzzing Good Reader Bag. Five names from each class were drawn from the bag. Those students were able to meet Hugo and receive a book from him. Students and staff were encouraged to wear Hornets’ gear or colors to school.
