Mountain Holiday’s roof collapsed

On Tuesday, May 2, Mountain Holiday owner

Beth White opened the door to her shop at 110 W. Mountain Street, only to discover that the store’s floor was flooded. Upon further investigation, she found that the roof had collapsed. “When I realized what happened, I just sat on the bench outside and cried,” she said.

Luckily, the portion of the roof that collapsed was behind Beth’s office space at the back of the store. The water from weekend rains caused the roof to collapse, pushing it through the backdoor and flooding the store’s floor from back to front.

Beth posted photos online. To her surprise, Wednesday morning people just showed up to help her move her things to storage. “I am so grateful,” Beth said. “Dave is out of town on business, and I didn’t know how I was going to move everything.”

Business people and friends came with carts, trailers, and extra hands to move her inventory and store fixtures. Everything that wasn’t damaged was moved, and by Wednesday afternoon the shop was all but empty.

“What happened is terrible, but the support of friends got me through the toughest part. I am amazed by the support and generosity of the merchants around me. We are a family down here on Mountain Street and everything they did just warmed my heart. I’ll never forget it,” Beth added.

Bobby and Sharon Horne own the building, and they had workers in there immediately. By Friday, the roof had been replaced and dryers took care of the remaining moisture. Workers See MOUNTAIN, Page 4A

Kings Mountain Fire Department and Safe Kids Cleveland County are hosting a free car seat check-up and hot car awareness event on Friday, May 12 at Kings Mountain Fire Station at 1207 Shelby Road Kings Mountain from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Every 10 days, across the United States, a child dies while unattended in a hot car. It only takes a few minutes for a car to heat up and become deadly to a child inside. To help prevent tragic and unnecessary

deaths due to heatstroke, Safe Kids Worldwide and the General Motors Foundation launched Never Leave Your Child Alone in a Car, an education and awareness campaign geared toward parents and caregivers. New parents, grandparents, and anyone who might be responsible for transporting a child in your vehicle should learn how to use car seats safely. In addition, you can get your car seat professionally checked by a nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) at a car seat check-up event or a car seat inspection station.

National Police Week May 14 – 20

Communities across the United States will come together during National Police Week to honor and remember those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the family members, friends and fellow officers left behind.

This year, the names of 556 officers killed in the line of duty are being added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Me-

morial in Washington, DC. These 556 officers include 224 officers who were killed during 2022, plus 332 officers who died in previous years, but whose stories of sacrifice had been lost to history until now. National Police Week is celebrated on whatever week May 15 falls in, under President Kennedy’s decree to honor the men and women who risk their lives every day in the line of duty.

Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office welcomed six deputies on Monday, May 8. “We look forward to working alongside them,” they shared. Newly sworn in were Deputy J. Buck, Deputy J. Davis, Deputy J. McCluney, Deputy B. Spencer, Deputy C. Sanchez, and Deputy D. Whiteside

Get rid of it

(Part 2 of “The Invitation” Series)

As we go from day to day, there are many concerns that we have. These concerns can turn into worry, fear, and anxiety, especially when we don’t know what to do about a difficult situation. Worrying is mental distress and agitation which occurs when we allow allowing our minds to dwell on trouble or something anticipated as trouble. When stressful situations dominate our thoughts and consume our minds with images of unfavorable outcomes, this is also known as anxiety, uneasiness, or fretting. This distress doesn’t offer anything beneficial to our lives. On the contrary, it breeds negativity and can be detrimental to our health, causing migraine headaches, insomnia, depression, strokes, and other

issues. Worrying is a choice! In Matthew 6:34, Jesus says, “take therefore no thought for tomorrow”. Another translation simply states, “don’t worry about In other words, make a decision to reject the need to dwell on issues out of your control. There is a better way to deal with our worries. I Peter 5:7 (NLT) says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” How many times do we pray about something, or attend church and feel better, only to pick up that burden again instead of leaving it on the altar? God is in-

viting us and commanding us to get rid of it! He will not force us to let go of our burdens - it’s our choice! We have to be determined not to entertain anxious thoughts. Philippians

4:6-7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Ways to Deal with Worry

Utilizing a variety of coping methods can assist us in weathering our personal storms. Alternatives to worry are exercising, listening to uplifting music, talking to someone about personal fears, or brainstorming positive outcomes to the situation. Distracting the thoughts with scripture and declaring its promises produces strength and peace. II

Corinthians 10:4-5 (ESV) “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.We destroy arguments

and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God; and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

PRAY THIS PRAYER:

“Father, I love you. It is an honor to rest in your Presence. Thank you that I can cast all of my worries on you because you care for me. From the end of the earth I call to you. When my heart is faint, lead me to the rock that is higher than I. You have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. I choose today to let go of my worries and give them to you. You can handle anything. I wasn’t created to carry such a heavy load. I receive your invitation for peace. Thank you for being the Prince of Peace. In Jesus’ name - Amen.”

It is time for hurricane preparedness in NC

The first week in May was Hurricane Preparedness Week. Governor Cooper encourages preparedness and education about the dangers of hurricanes and reminds everyone to be ready for tropical weather. Hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.

“North Carolina is prone to the impacts of hurricanes, tropical storms and other severe weather,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “It’s important to be prepared by having a family emergency plan and emergency kit, which will help you to survive the impacts of a storm and recover faster.”

North Carolina continues to recover from the devastating effects of multiple large storms including Hurricane Ian, which brought wind, rain, isolated tornadoes and power outages to North Carolina. Tropical Storm Fred caused devastation and six deaths in Western North Carolina two years ago. In 2020 Hurri-

cane Isaias and the remnants of Hurricane Eta pummeled parts of the state; as did Hurricane Dorian in 2019; Hurricane Florence, Tropical Storms Michael and Alberto in 2018; and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

“Being prepared also includes having flood insurance, which is not normally part of homeowner’s insurance policies,” said Will Ray, Director of North Carolina Emergency Management. “It’s also important that we all look out for our neighbors, especially the elderly who may be more vulnerable.”

Hurricane Florence struck NC in 2018 and was the wettest tropical cyclone on record in the Carolinas.

for family or friends from coastal or flood prone areas.

Be sure to write down your plan and gather important documents, such as copy of driver’s license, insurance policies, medical records, and bank account information, and put them somewhere you can quickly access in case of emergency.

Make sure to review and update homeowners or renters’ insurance policies to ensure they are current and include adequate coverage for your current situation.

All North Carolinians are strongly encouraged to

develop an emergency plan. The plan should include details on how and where you would evacuate, a meeting place, and important phone numbers. Everyone should have an evacuation plan to stay with family or friends, or at a hotel outside the affected area. Staying at a public shelter should be a last resort, not your primary plan. Offer to share your home as a shelter location

Having an emergency kit allows people to survive for a few days with little or no outside assistance. Assemble an emergency supplies kit that includes enough non-perishable food and water to last each family member three to seven days. Other essential items include:

• First-aid kit

• Weather radio and batteries

• Prescription medicines

• Sleeping bag or blankets

• Changes of clothes

• Hygiene items such as toothbrush, toothpaste, soap and deodorant

• Cash

• Pet supplies including food, water, bedding, leashes, muzzle and vaccination records

• Face masks and hand-sanitizer

Residents should pay attention to weather and evacuation information from local news media and have a battery-powered radio in case there is a power outage. If asked to evacuate, residents should promptly follow evacuation instructions.

To help mitigate damage to your home from severe weather, people can

KM women BSC track champions

Kings Mountain High’s women’s track team won the 2023 Big South Conference championship last week with an 11-point victory over the Ashbrook Green Wave.

The Lady Mountaineers

finished with 123 points to Ashbrook’s 112. South Point ran third with 83 points followed by Stuart Cramer 78, Forestview 48, North Gaston 42, Hunter Huss 38 and Crest 28.

Six inducted into KM Sports Hall of Fame

Six former Compact and Kings Mountain High School athletes were inducted into the Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame at its 36th annual ceremony Saturday night at Central United Methodist Church.

They include Compact High School football and basketball star Miles Boyd, former Kings Mountain High and NC Central volleyball great Suzette Feemster, KMHS and University of Kentucky golfer Alex Goff, former KMHS fourstar athlete Chris Henson, former KMHS football and track star Tim Hines and former KMHS and East Carolina University football standout Cedric Thompson.

Miles Boyd was inducted by his son who said his father made a big impact on his school and community.

Boyd played at Compact in the 1960s under the late John Blalock who coached the Cobras in every sport and after integration turned out many of Kings Mountain High’s best basketball players.

Boyd scored over 1,300 points in basketball at a time when there were no 3-point goals.

“He was great enough that whoever was in contact with him knew him,” his son said.

Boyd thanked the Hall of Fame for honoring him. “Thinking back to Compact, I am so happy it was a small school,” he said. “I used to walk to the Kings Mountain pool to play basketball. Now I just walk out in the yard and get in a car.

He thanked fellow Compact student Carl Burris for his support over the years

and added that the late John Blalock was a great coach.

“I remember we’d get behind in a game and he’d say ‘don’t worry about it, the game’s not over yet.’ Life is the same way. Do the best you can, love your brothers and sisters and thank God for taking care of us.”

Suzette Feemster, a KM volleyball great in the late 1990s, was inducted by her high school coach Dianna Bridges. Feemster and her teammates won KM’s first volleyball state championship in ’98.

“I can still see her playing,” Bridges said. “I am very proud of her. She was so good all I had to do was encourage her. She was a three-sport athlete and could do it all.”

Bridges pointed out that Feemster averaged over 21 points and nine rebounds a game in basketball, was a two-time All-Conference and MVP her senior year in volleyball and later played four years at NC Central where she was All-Conference, All-Tournament and led the team in kills and attack percentage.

She is now a school principal.

“Most definitely, it was Coach Bridges’ coaching that trained me for the next level,” Feemster said. “My parents were very supportive and always there for me and my brother Thomas trained me to play basketball on a red dirt court.”

She joins her “baby brother” Mariko Feemster, who played football at KMHS and the University of North Carolina, in the See HALL, Page 2B

Girls softball travels for first playoff game

Kings Mountain High’s women’s softball team completed Big South Conference play last week and was scheduled to begin the NCHSAA 3A playoffs yesterday at Southern Guilford. The winner will go to the second round against the winner of the Oak GroveHibriten game.

The Lady Mountaineers dropped their final two BSC games, 5-1 to Stuart Cramer on Tuesday and 6-1 to Crest on Friday.

Maddie Huffman went the distance against Cramer, giving up seven hits while

striking out 11. Paige Fleming and Alayna Patrick had multiple hits for the Lady Mountaineers with Patrick delivering the lone RBI.

Alayna Patrick went 2-for-4 with a seventh inning solo home run in the loss to Crest. Maddie Huffman went the distance on the mound.

The losses left the Lady Mountaineers in second place in the Big South Conference with a 10-4 conference and 13-7 overall record. Crest won the conference with a 14-0 conference and 18-3 overall mark.

Kings Mountain’s men finished second to Ashbrook 155-130. Hunter Huss was third at 103 followed by South Point 102, Stuart Cramer 26, Crest 23, Forestview eight and North Gaston five.

The Lady Mountaineers, whose coach Hailey Raza-Spearman was named BSC Coach of the Year, got an outstanding overall showing from Divinity Ervin who was first place with All-Conference honors in the 1600 and 3200, second in the 800 with a personal record of 2:44.55 and anchor of the third place 4x800 meter relay team.

Kamari Odems placed third in the 100 meter high hurdles and 300 meter hurdles with a personal record of 51.88.

Mountaineers sweep Crest, playoffs begin

Kings Mountain High’s baseball team swept county rival Crest in its final two regular season games and was scheduled to begin NCHSAA state 3A tournament action at home last night with a game against Big South Conference rival Stuart Cramer.

The winner of that game will advance to the second round against the winner of the East Gulford-Jesse Carson game.

The Mountaineers and Chargers ended the regular season in a tie for second place in the Big South Conference but the Mountaineers’ sweep of Crest last week gave them the number two conference seed behind the first place South Point

Red Raiders who came on strong in the second half to win the title with a 12-2 conference mark. KM and Crest finished 11-3 in the league.

The Chargers all but had the conference championship wrapped up before the Mountaineers took a 6-3 win Tuesday night at Crest. The KM nine completed the sweep and earned a first round home playoff game with a 5-3 win Friday at Lancaster Field.

Senior pitchers Zane Brockman and Wyatt Davis had big nights on the mound in the two victories and a host of Mountaineers provided good hitting and defense.

Feemster recently joined the staff of KM’s new football coach Strait Herron. She said she has fond memories of all of her high school coaches, including Ronnie Funderburke, the late Tony Leigh and Coach Bridges for their guidance.

She said she and her teammates at KMHS never got a ring but held up her hand with four rings on it that she received as an assistant principal at schools she served out of state. “I never won one as a player but as a leader. Athletes make the best leaders.”

KMHS golf coach Kevin Moss inducted Alex Goff, possibly KM High’s greatest ever golfer.

“We’ve had a lot of good ones,” he said, “but I don’t know of anyone else like Alex. He was one of a kind. He was unbelievable. As a freshman he was shooting par and under. I’d never experienced that kind of talent. He was one of the best to ever come through here. I’d put his stats and accomplishments against anybody.”

Moss pointed out that Goff holds several records at the University of Kentucky and at present has a 70.6 scoring average which is #1 in UK history. He also does very well academically, Moss said, as he graduated this year with a 3.9 GPA and was Academic All-Southeastern Conference all four years.

Goff was playing in the NCAA Regional this weekend and his father, Bryan, accepted his award.

Chris Henson was an All-Conference standout in four sports – wrestling, baseball, soccer and cross country – during his KMHS career and was a starting infielder on KM’s 1989 state championship baseball team which was coached by the late Bruce Clark. He went on to play four years of baseball at Wingate University.

Former KM wrestling coach Steve Moffitt pointed out that Henson never lost a conference match and was conference Player of the Year in 1989 and ’90. He qualified for the state tournament all three of his high school years. Ninth graders at that time went to Kings Mountain Junior High.

Henson thanked his coaches and teammates and the community for his success. “My family and the village helped me,” he said. “It all starts at the youth level. I was blessed.”

Tim Hines, who was unable to attend, was inducted by Charlie Hines. He pointed out that Tim was grateful to the school administration and the coaches and those who trained him “not just on the field but as a person. He is successful and we’re proud of him.”

Hines was the first KMHS receiver to have over a thousand yards receiving in one season and he was a member of KM’s state championship 800 meter relay team in 2010. He went on to Davidson College and was the Wildcats’ #1 receiver for two years.

Hines wasn’t just a great athlete, but a scholar. He graduated third in his class.

“Tim wants to thank ev-

eryone that supported him,” Charlies Hines said.

Hines’ teammate, Cedric Thompson, who was also a thousand yard receiver, was inducted by his KMHS head football coach Greg Lloyd. He credited players like Hines and Thompson for helping the Mountaineers turn their program around.

“I had the privilege to coach many talented players like Tim Hines and Cedric Thompson,” Lloyd said. “Cedric was probably the most versatile I ever coached in my 28 years. In a hundred years of Kings Mountain football, Cedric’s right up there at the top. He was always a good player.

“And we really needed people like Cedric to become a good team,” Lloyd said.

Lloyd pointed out that Thompson played quarterback one year when KM ran a Wildcat offense and was outstanding running and passing.

“He completed 48 passes for 963 yards and rushed for 704 yards,” Coach Lloyd noted. “He had 21 total touchdowns his senior year and that was the best we’d ever had at that time against the toughest schedule we’d ever had. We beat Hickory, Shelby and Crest and that’s when we turned the corner in our football program.

“His junior year we had to go two overtimes to beat Hickory and he had one of his biggest games. In the second overtime we couldn’t stop them and they went ahead. We scored and had to go for two to win and Cameron (Harris, the quarterback) told me let’s just get the ball to Cedric. He did and Cedric scored.

“In an earlier game with Ashbrook we were down 24 points in the third quarter and we got within a touchdown with two minutes to go. I told Cameron ‘get the ball to Cedric’. Cedric got open and went all the way for a touchdown to win the game.”

In a game against Shelby the Mountaineers were on their 19 yard line trailing Shelby with less than a minute to go. Harris threw a sideline bomb to Thompson and he took it to the house for the win.

Lloyd pointed out that Thompson was named the Offensive Player of the Year, played in the East-West AllStar game and was selected to the KMHS All-Decade team for the 1990s.

“He was a great leader and played his best in big games,” Lloyd noted. “He went on to East Carolina and had four good years there as a receiver and on special teams. He was team captain his senior year at ECU and was one of Kings Mountain’s finest on and off the field.”

Thompson said being selected to the Hall of Fame is a “very big honor and it means a lot to me. I want to thank the Kings Mountain community for being behind me. Growing up, all I wanted to do was play ball. I thank everyone for their support.”

The Hall of Fame also presented its annual scholarships to outstanding student athletes from KMHS. They include Zane Brockman, Camille Currence, Austyn Dixon, Jacob Hamrick, Maggie Honeycutt, Khalia King, Jake Lloyd, Alayna Patrick and Carter Grace Reed.

The Mountaineers edged the Chargers 5-3 Friday in the regular season finale at Lancaster Field, moving South Point to first place after the Raiders’ come from

New coaches promise high-octane offense for Mountaineer football

Kings Mountain High’s new head football coach

Strait Herron and one of his assistants, offensive coordinator Jamie Bolton, met with Mountaineer fans last week at Brinkley Field House. New defensive coordinator Bobby Carroll did not attend.

All three of the new coaches have state championships in their background – Herron and Carroll in South Carolina and Bolton in the Tar Heel State.

Also in attendance were returning Kings Mountain coaches Kevin Cruise, Jeff Cloninger, Jacob Lineberger, Diron Bell Wilder Clark and Rick Fortner.

“This is a great staff,” Coach Herron said. “All of these guys have my back.

“Diron Bell has been my go-to for information,” he said. “He can do it all in the system we run. Our DB’s have to be coached very well. It’s been great to sit down with all the coaches one on one to learn their past.”

A new hire who should be popular with the fans is Riko Feemster, a Shrine Bowl offensive lineman on KM’s 1998 team that played for the state championship. He went on to play at UNC. He will be coaching defensive ends. Shane Cole also returns to the defensive side and another new coach, Nate Blanton who played at Appalachian State, will work with linebackers and possibly the secondary.

“You’ll see some new faces,” Herron said. “As I’ve gotten to know these guys I know they will do very well.

“Jamie will be leading

The 4x400 meter relay team of Kamari Odems, Kieanna Ellis, Nicole Poston and Brooke Waseman was second with a personal record of 4:43.40.

Bolton grew up around football as his dad coached with former KM assistant coach Bruce Clark at North Gaston and also coached at Forestview. He coached with Coach Carroll in York and comes to KM as the winningest coach at the private Canon School in Concord. His team won the state championship two years ago.

“This is a special place to be,” he said of KMHS. He and Coach Herron agreed that the KM offensive attack will be the “Air Raid. It’s a great offense. You call the plays as fast as you can and keep the defense guessing,” he said.

With the personnel returning this fall, both coaches feel they will have a good system

Other Mountaineers with outstanding finishes included:

-Hunter Cruise, first in the pole vault, third in the 400 meter dash and a member of the first place 4x800 team and the anchor of the third place 4x400 meter relay.

with a lot of options.

“You’ll see a lot of different formations,” Bolton said. “We believe in balance but not necessarily a 50-50 balance and we’ll go with whatever attack we need each week. We want to throw the book at defenses…get the ball to our best playmakers.” The coaches indicated they will be in a triple option and shotgun and use a lot of misdirection.

Right now, the KM coaching staff is going through spring drills and getting their new system in. They already see that the team is hungry for a state championship.

“They’re excited,” Bolton said said. “They’re hungry and I can see some leadership and unbelievable skill. I told the offense ‘you guys have every opportunity to prove yourselves.’ I am very excited.”

the players didn’t know what to expect. “We’re fast paced with everything,” he said. “We’re not going to be walking around. When the officials blow the whistle it’s time to move. I really think the players have taken to what we’re doing. Speed kills and I know we have speed.”

The new coaches already know what to expect in the Big South. “We’re familiar with the Kings Mountain, Shelby, and Crest rivalries and South Point and we know they all have good players. But I’m not worried about other teams. I’m worried about Kings Mountain,” he said. The Mountaineers open their season with a home game against Shelby and he said “that week is when we’ll worry about Shelby. Right now I’m worried about Kings Mountain.”

Four Yeti baseball players recognized

Four members of the Cleveland Community College baseball team received 2023 Region 10 Division II awards. Named to the All-Region First Team were pitcher Jamisen Eichacker and infielder Kael Snethen. Pitcher Kyle Murphy was named to the All-Region Second Team and Infielder Tyler Casciato was named to the Gold Glove Team.

Eichacker, a sophomore from Mooresville, NC went 10-1 on the season with 2.89 earned run average and struck out 83 batters. His 10 wins at the end of the regular season tied for first place among all NJCAA Division II pitchers. Snethen, a sophomore from Rutherfordton, NC (R-S Central) batted .405 with 28 RBI’s, 43 runs scored and 40 stolen bases as the Yetis’ shortstop. He finished the regular season in third place in the NJCAA Division II standings for stolen bases. Murphy, a sophomore from Gainesville, GA went 6-2 on the season with a 3.90 earned run average and 76 strikeouts. He also saw time as a designated hitter and infielder. Casciato, a sophomore from Pittsburgh, PA, posted a .981 fielding percentage in 105 total chances, converting 12 double plays and committing only 2 errors as the Yetis’ second baseman. He batted .306 with 22 RBI’s and 30 stolen bases.

“Jamisen and Kyle put us in a strong position to win Region series games as starters on the mound,” said Head Coach John Grigg. “Snethen and Casciato were our one-two punch at the top of the batting order and set the tone on the base paths.”

KM Country Club

Last week, lead sportscaster for CBS Sports, Jim Nantz, was in Charlotte for the Wells Fargo Championship. He is the nephew of Ken and Pucky Nantz of Kings Mountain.

Jim hoped to spend time with Ken while he was visiting and to tour the KM golf course where Ken has been the Pro Shop manager. Friday, Jim came over unexpectedly for a quick trip between meetings to ride with Ken around the course.

Four of the players on the KMHS golf team, Will and Thomas Spicer, Baylor Benton, and Caleb Marr, just

happened to be playing golf at the time. So, Jim used one of their cell phones to announce the drives of each player as if they were on tour at the Wells Fargo Championship. Pucky shared, “He is so gracious to fans. He says when he was a kid, following his favorite golfer, that he had an opportunity to ask for an autograph. The golfer refused and that made a big impression on him.”

Jim Nantz’s kindness toward Will and Thomas Spicer, Caleb Marr, and Baylor Benton at Kings Mountain Country Club surely made lifetime memories for these young men.

Two CCC nursing students recognized

Jennifer Crawford and Kaitlin Emmert, both nursing students at Cleveland Community College, have each been recognized for exhibiting great potential as future nurses.

Crawford, an Associate Degree (RN) Nursing Program student, was selected by her instructors to receive the Great 100 Nursing Scholarship. “I am extremely humbled and thankful to have been acknowledged for my efforts, and I will continue to touch the lives of others and make a difference. This scholarship will help me get closer to realizing my dream of becoming a registered nurse.”

In selecting a recipient for this scholarship, faculty had to consider several factors, including the student’s ability to complete the program, character, financial need and participation in student or community activities.

“Jennifer is an excellent student in both the classroom and clinical facility,” said Lori Waris, a faculty member and simulation lab coordinator. “She was chosen for this award unanimously by the nursing faculty.”

“I have always wanted to be a nurse,” said Crawford. “I believe that nursing is one of the most selfless acts a person can undertake. I want to be a nurse to help people and make them feel safe and cared for. Sometimes I inspire my patients, but

more often, they inspire me!”

The Practical Nursing program faculty selected Kaitlin Emmert to receive the Betty Garrison Award. “She was chosen as someone who exhibits kindness and compassion to all she meets,” said Waris, which is one of the qualities Garrison was well-known to possess. The Metrolina Council of Nursing Organizations created the award to honor Betty Garrison, whose life was cut short by ovarian cancer in 2007. Garrison was a respected and loved member of the Charlotte nursing community for many years. The award honors qualities that Garrison exhibited in her career and life, including patient advocacy, patient care excellence, commitment to community service, and involvement in the nursing profession.

“I am so grateful to have been selected for this award,” said Emmert. “There are so many amazing nursing students here at CCC, and to have been chosen is a blessing.” Emmert’s goal is to emulate Garrison’s qualities as she becomes a nurse. “I want to be a nurse to love and nurture our community. I want to be a part of advancing our society. I believe just one loving nurse can change the lives of many!”

to be at least 16 years old, log 60 hours of driving time, pass a road test and show printed proof of insurance in the teen driver's name.

The requirement to advance to Level 2 had been 12 months for most of the last 25 years since the GDL system was put into place in 1997. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the legislature temporarily shortened this requirement to six months. That provision lapsed at the end of 2022, leaving thousands of teen drivers and their families in limbo.

“Now that this requirement has been changed back to six months, we look forward to helping these teen drivers through this process," said DMV Commissioner Wayne Goodwin. “We ask for your patience as we work to accommodate the thousands of teen drivers that are suddenly eligible to take a road test and receive their Level 2 provisional license."

According to the new legislation, this six-month provision will again lapse at the end of the year. Beginning Jan. 1,

How to Prepare a Will

Dear Savvy Senior,

I would like to make my last will and testament and would like to know if I can do it myself, or do I need to hire a lawyer?

Don’t Have Much

Dear Don’t,

Very good question! Almost everyone needs a will, but only around one-third of American have actually prepared one. Having a last will and testament is important because it ensures your money and property will be distributed to the people you want to receive it after your death.

If you die without a will (a.k.a. dying “intestate”), your estate will be settled in accordance with state law. Details vary by state, but assets typically are distributed using a hierarchy of survivors i.e., first to a spouse, then to children, then your siblings, and so on. You also need to be aware that certain accounts take precedence over a will. If you jointly own a home or a bank account, for example, the house, and

the funds in the account, will go to the joint holder, even if your will directs otherwise. Similarly, retirement accounts and life insurance policies are distributed to the beneficiaries you designate, so it is important to keep them up to date too.

Do You Need a Lawyer?

Not necessarily. Creating a will with a do-it-yourself software program may be acceptable in some cases, particularly if you have a simple, straightforward estate and an uncomplicated family situation. Otherwise, it’s best to seek professional advice. An experienced lawyer can make sure you cover all your bases, which can help avoid family confusion and squabbles after you’re gone.

If you need help finding someone the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA.org), the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils (NAEPC.org) and the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC.org) websites are good resources that have online directories to

help you search.

Costs will vary depending on your location and the complexity of your situation, but you can expect to pay somewhere between $200 and $1,000 or more to get your will made. To help you save, shop around and get price quotes from several different firms. And before you meet with an attorney, make a detailed list of your assets and accounts to help make your visit more efficient.

If money is tight, check with your state’s bar association (see FindLegalHelp.org) to find low-cost legal help in your area. Or call the Eldercare Locater at 800-677-1116 for a referral.

If you are interested in a do-it-yourself will, some top options to consider are Nolo’s Quicken WillMaker & Trust (Nolo.com, $99) and Trust & Will (TrustandWill.com, $159). Or, if that’s more than you’re willing to pay, you can make your will for free at FreeWill.com or DoYourOwnWill. com.

It’s also recommended that if you do create your own will, have a lawyer review it to make sure it covers all the important bases.

Where to Store it?

Once your will is written, the best place to keep it is either in a fireproof safe or file cabinet at home, in a safe deposit box in your bank or online at sites like Everplans.com. But make sure your executor knows where it is and has access to it. Or, if a professional prepares your will, keep the original document at your lawyer’s office. Also, be sure to update your will if your family or financial circumstances change, or if you move to another state.
