“The Davidson Association is committed to making a difference in the community,” stated Tamra Moody, Chair of the Health Committee for the Davidson Association, and coordinator of the Kings Mountain farmers market project.

“We know that the only way that Kings Mountain

can have a successful farmers market is if everyone comes together to make it happen. We couldn’t have put this project together without the help of the Cleveland County Cooperative Extension Office, the City of King Mountain, and the Foothills Farmers’ Market Committee. We are also grateful to Phil and Sandie Dee for allowing us to use the Wells Fargo property as our venue this summer.”

“We are asking the community to support the market weekly. We are asking our local restaurants to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables from the market. We are also asking high school students in the horticulture department to volunteer at the market this summer. This is truly a community event. If you know of anyone that may be interested in selling at the KM market this summer, please email us historicdavidson@ gmail.com. Fees will be waived this year,” Moody said.

OPINION

Pieces of Kings Mountain History

On August 3, 1923, Calvin Coolidge took office, making 2023 his centennial presidential year. This year also marks a centennial for Grace Coolidge—the 100th anniversary of her broadcast in the then-young medium of commercial radio. Grace Coolidge was a modern, vibrant woman who many say was more popular in her own endeavors than her president husband.

An article ran in the Kings Mountain Herald on April 22, 1937, connects Kings Mountain to the president’s wife and a British aristocrat. According to the Herald, “Two famous ladies have recently purchased rugs made in Kings Mountain at the rug plant operated by the Victory Gin Co. Mrs. Calvin Coolidge, wife of the late President Coolidge, recently bought two beautiful Scotch plaid rugs. The rugs were a special order made up in five colors,” the article continued.

“Lady Astor, of London, is also enjoying rugs made in the Best Town in the State. Lady Astor’s sister who lives in Tryon, N. C. bought the rugs and sent them to her sister as a present.

getting some good advertising from the manufacture of these rugs, and if P. D. Herndon, who is in charge of this plant, will keep up the good work soon the Best Town in The State will be known around the world.”

Hayne Neisler found a similar article in the N.C. Daily Bulletin about the same time that shared more detail from the visit,

“Former First Lady Grace Coolidge spent the afternoon in Kings Mountain yesterday purchasing throw rugs for her winter home here in Tryon, N.C.

“Arriving at P.D. Herndon’s Victory Gin rug factory around noon, she spent several hours looking at different designs before purchasing several beautiful five color Scotch plaid rugs. Mr. Herndon graciously offered the rugs to Mrs. Coolidge at no charge, but she insisted on paying telling him a story about her late husband, President Calvin Coolidge, who had a legendary reputation for being tight with a dollar.

“After leaving the White House in March of 1929, Mr. Coolidge later found out he had left behind two fifty-dollar Liberty Bonds in the safe near the Oval Office. He instructed the staff to immediately forward him the interest from his last month in the White House.

After several frantic calls to the White House a letter arrived at the Coolidge’s home in Northampton, Massachusetts. Inside the envelope was his month’s interest-- two cents.”

Grace Coolidge made a name for herself with her interest in the newest rage, the radio, according to coolidgefoundation.org.

One of the ways the radio got its big start was KDKA’s election night broadcast of the Harding-Cox contest in November 1920. Among those caught up in the enthusiasm for the new medium was Grace Coolidge. While she was curious about radio’s workings, what most likely drew her to it was her love of music and baseball. Early radio stations usually provided timely baseball scores as part of their daily programming.

Grace Coolidge’s interest in radio became known to the newspapermen who followed her husband, Vice President Calvin Coolidge. In the spring of 1922, to boost interest in the radio, photographs began appearing in newspapers around the country of various public figures listening to their radio sets. According to Wireless Age, the theme was “National Leaders Accept Radio as Force for Good.”

Harding cabinet members. But the radio men made an exception for the Second Lady, Grace Coolidge. The photographers, Underwood & Underwood, took an engaging picture of Mrs. Coolidge wearing earphones while working the dials on her radio receiver. This photograph, taken in the Coolidge suite at the Willard Hotel, appeared in papers around the country. Meanwhile, articles about Grace Coolidge and photos of her were appearing fre-

quently in the press—making her a public figure in her own right. The 1920s were a pivotal for women in America. In the Warren G. Harding election of 1920, women voted for the first time. In 1925, the first woman governor was elected. And, in 1928, Amelia Earhart flew across the Atlantic. Adding perspective to the changing times, the 1920s also saw the founding of NBC, and the next year the first “talkie” movie, The Jazz

Singer, was released. To know that the popular First Lady Grace Coolidge made a stop in Kings Mountain while traveling to see her winter home in Tryon, NC in 1937, just four years after her husband’s death, connects Kings Mountain to the history of very famous people. Further, to know that Lady Astor’s sister visited “The Best Town in the State” to purchase rugs for her only adds to the story.

The participants were all male and several were

Looking Back When someone knocks on your door…

Kings Mountain has many citizens who have played a role in building the community. A. Hunter Patterson was one such individual. In 1938, the Herald wrote a tribute to Mr. Patterson for his service, giving us a glimpse into the life of this business leader.

Arthur Hunter Patterson, Secretary and Treasurer of Home Building & Loan Association, 56, is recognized in the financial circles as a man of action and ability.

For the past fifteen years he has held the responsible position as secretary and treasurer of the Home Building and Loan Association, a financial institution of which Dr. J. E. Anthony is president, and J. B. Thomasson, vice president. Directors of this institution are J. B. Thomasson, J. E. Anthony, G. A. Bridges, I. G. Patterson, Z. F. Cranford. J. B. Mauney, L. L. Alexander, T. N. Harmon, and A. H. Patterson. This institution was organized in 1923 and since that time it has become responsible to the stockholders for $317,503.71.

Mr. Patterson enjoys a widespread reputation as being a financier who has always exercised the best of good judgement in

his business negotiations. He is tactful and courteous to the prospective small homeowner as well as to the speculator.

Mr. Patterson has the interest of the entire community at heart, and he experiences a spontaneous overflow of joy in seeing that so many people of Kings Mountain realize the happiness and contentment which only home ownership can give.

Mr. A. H. Patterson is the son of Mrs. I. H. Patterson and the late Mr. Patterson of the Patterson Grove community. In 1881 Mr. Patterson was born amidst the splendor and grandeur which life on a large country estate can realize. He is

a member of a large family. This one fact has contributed much toward molding the cosmopolitan businessman who is always active in community life.

In his youth Mr. Patterson attended the small school at Patterson Grove. When he completed the scholastic work there, he continued his studies at Rutherford College.

In his early business life, Mr. Patterson was employed in the clerical force of Plonk, Kiser, and Company, and then with Kiser and Mauney.

During the administration of President Wilson, Mr. Patterson served as Postmaster of Kings Mountain. In this capacity he served the government to the best of his ability, and the receipts of the local office showed an increase.

Mr. Patterson was a member of the town board for two years, and for the past nine years he has been an efficient member of the Kings Mountain School Board. Mr. Patterson was one of the board members who strove with untiring zeal and determination to rebuild the Kings Mountain High School unit after it was destroyed by fire in the fall of 1932.

Knocking on doors is as American as apple pie. Politicians, sales persons, clergy, Girl Scouts, federal census workers, and the list goes on of persons and professions who have depended on knocking on doors.

When I was a child, I sold GRIT newspapers. I needed to knock on a lot of doors to sell 20 papers which made me a cool $1. Serving churches for years, I have probably knocked on over a thousand-plus doors to invite people to church. I’m so glad no one shot me.

The recent shooting of a 16-year-old teenager in Kansas City, mistakenly knocking on the wrong door, is beyond insane. The teenage boy was at the wrong house to pick up his brothers who were a block away. Who shoots through a door without reason unless the individual is crazy or on drugs or perhaps both? The problem is, we do have a severe mental illness epidemic in America

and a drug crisis. Throw in America’s growing gun violence issues and therefore knocking on strange doors becomes a scary scenario.

I admit hearing someone knock on the door at dinner time is a bit aggravating. Usually for me, it’s a high school band member selling mulch to raise money for the band. Or, it’s someone raising money for another school project. You can’t be irritated with a 15-year-old kid who is out trying to raise money for his school. Unless, you are crazy or on drugs. Then anything might tick you off. By all means, don’t be this person!

For the most part, more and more industrious people are relying on social media to try to gain new business. It’s true you can reach more people more efficiently via Internet advertising, social media, and other media sources than by taking all day to knock on a few doors. If people want it, they will respond to your advertising.

People have rightfully withdrawn from knocking on doors because they are paranoid of disturbing someone’s favorite television pro-

gram, meal or nap. This is never a good environment for making a sale or making a friend.

Maybe the day of selling magazine subscriptions, brushes, vacuum cleaners, and stuff like that door-to-door is in the past. Do any ministers ever knock on your door and invite you to church?

If someone does knock on your door, don’t immediately invite them into your house. They should have a picture identification badge for you to see. They also should talk to you about a future appointment when you can make time for the pitch. In addition, they should present you with some information containing a phone number so you can call them if you have further interest. You can always say “no thank you,” and shut your door. If you have a chain lock on your door or a locked glass door you can talk through, then you are even better off.

Give careful consideration to the hard work some people put into knocking on doors.

Better still, give even more careful consideration to how you answer the door.

Farce of Nature cast. (Photo provided)

Farce of Nature continues this weekend at KMLT

Kings Mountain Little Theatre continues its season with the comedy, “Farce of Nature,” directed by Amy Hardin on Friday, May 5th, at 7:30 p.m. This play is sponsored by the Jim and Penny Larson Family.

KMLT announced that performances are scheduled for May 5th, and 6th at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on Sundays, May 7th at 3:00 p.m.

The non-stop hilarity of this Southern-fried farce highlights one day in the life of the Wilburn family of Mayhew, Arkansas.

Meet D. Gene Wilburn (Greg Dixon), the owner and proprietor of the Reel ’Em Inn, the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks. Well, it used to be, but lately business is down, tourists are few, and the lone guest who’s just checked in—an extremely jittery Carmine DeLuca (Tim Evans) from Chicago—is only there due to a location shift in the Witness Protection Program.

Doesn’t anybody just want to fish anymore? Certainly not

D. Gene’s frustrated wife, Wanelle (Denise McCoy), who’s fed up with their lackluster romantic life. She’s taken drastic steps to improve it through hypnotic suggestion; and, for the life of him, D. Gene cannot understand why his pants keep falling down.

D. Gene’s feisty sister Maxie (Mary Grace Keller) has her own problems, chief among them battling ageism to resume her career in law enforcement. a task that’s going to prove to be much harder than she bargained for, since she keeps losing both her gun and the bullets. And she never anticipated the gangster Camine’s been dodging for the last five years, Sonny Barbosa (Chris Huffstetler), is about to walk through the door, in hot pursuit of his sexy wife, Lola (Caswell Martin). Seems the headstrong Lola has driven hundreds

The Invitation

Johnny Lee, the American country music singer has a song called Lookin’ for Love” with the following lyrics:

“I was lookin’ for love in all the wrong places

Lookin’ for love in too many faces

I was alone then, no love in sight

I did everything I could to get me through the night”

It’s human nature to need and desire love. Many of us may even admit that we have searched for love, acceptance, or affirmation in the “wrong places” and came up empty and bankrupt. Fortunately, a better option is available to all. There’s someone who wants to lavish their love on each one of us - The Creator of the heavens and the earth. The One who made us in his image and after his likeness, is

the very essence of love. I John 4:16 states, “ So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in

It’s hard to wrap our minds around this supernatural, lavish love, because we are accustomed to receiving and giving imperfect, conditional love. But the Lord looks beyond our faults and loves us for who we truly are. He reveals this perfect love towards us through the sacrificial life and death of Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8

states, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.“

Invitation to Intimacy

The nature of the love of God is to draw us into a close relationship with him. It’s not enough to have a mental acknowledgement of his existence, but he invites us to open the doors of our hearts to him. Through faith in Jesus Christ and a surrendered heart, acceptance of the invitation takes us into a realm of intimacy with God that becomes experiential encounters of his exceptional love and presence. As we daily come to him and abide in him, he continually transforms our character to become more Christlike. He heals the wounds of our soul. Most importantly, he fills the void in our lives and makes us whole in a way that nothing or no one else can. In Revelation 3:20 Jesus states, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.

If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.”

Will you accept the invitation to be lavished by the love of God in Christ Jesus - Today and Everyday?

LET’S PRAY – “Father God, what an honor it is to be loved by you. Your love is astounding, yet it is more real than the air we breathe. I ask that you give us a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of you. Help us to grasp how wide and long and high and deep the love of Christ is. May we know this love that surpasses knowledge and be filled with all the fullness of you, O God in the name of Jesus. Amen.”

Sincox family gathers to celebrate three birthdays

On Saturday, April 29, at 3 p.m., Dr. Frank Sincox with his two children, Doug, and Kathy, gathered at First Presbyterian Church to celebrate their three birthdays.

Friends and family convened upon the church’s Recreation Building with cards, gifts, and well-wishes, taking turns to congratulate Dr. Sincox on his upcoming birthday, May 11. This year, he will celebrate his 91st birthday. Son Doug just turned 64, and daughter Kathy will be 62 this week.

The recreation center was decorated by friends with flowers, balloons, and custom banners in celebration of their birthdays. The family donned special t-shirts, custom made for each, and they posed for photos.

The U.S. Marines in attendance presented Dr. Frank Sincox a special plaque for his support of their organization over his many years in the community.

Arnold Clayton, of The Griggs, formally known as The Grigg Family Gospel Bluegrass Band, led the group

in singing the Happy Birthday Song.

Afterward, Dr. Sincox thanked everyone in attendance for coming to celebrate their birthdays and for their friendship over the last 60 years. He then cut the cake

and invited everyone to eat.

Arnold Clayton played Dueling Banjos at Dr. Simcox’s request, and he accompanied Dr. Sincox playing guitar and performing various songs to round out the party.

Make Mother’s Day special

Each and every day a new woman becomes a mother for the first time or all over again. Being a mother changes a person’s life in dramatic ways.

Mother’s Day is a great time of year to honor mothers and attempt to give back just a portion of the tireless love and devotion moms offer their children. Some children provide large gestures, while others feel it’s the little things that can help a mom to feel appreciated. For those needing a little inspiration on treating their mothers in special ways, consider these ideas.

• Make mom a breakfast in bed with her favorite morning treats.

• Enjoy a movie at home with mom. Let her pick the flick and share her favorite film with you.

• Agree to not bicker for the entire day, especially if you are prone to getting into arguments with siblings.

• Put together a collage of photos from moments you have shared with mom or your family.

• Cook a meal together and learn about everyone’s favorite recipes or the family history.

• Give her a locket with

duplicate you can wear containing her photo.

• Customize a coffee mug, tote bag or a blanket with a meaningful sentiment or photo.

• Treat mom to a day off from her chores. Tackle all of the jobs she normally does for the family.

• Bake a delicious dessert that mom will absolutely devour.

• Pamper mom with a gift card for her favorite nail salon or massage therapy location.

• Prepare a jar of mom’s favorite candies wrapped in pieces of paper that have loving sentiments written on them.

• Compile a playlist of

songs and artists mom prefers and download them to her phone.

• Begin a charm bracelet tradition by purchasing a charm bracelet and a new charm each year that represents a meaningful memory you both shared.

• Write a new email each day with an inspirational quote or special words of love for mom.

• Tackle a task that she may not want to do herself, such as washing the exterior of her car and vacuuming the interior.

Mother’s Day gift ideas should come from the heart and can show mothers near and far how much they are appreciated and loved.

Crafts lead the way for Mother’s Day gifts

Mother’s Day is a special time for children to show their appreciation for their mothers, grandmothers and the other special women in their lives. Older children typically are capable of designing their own Mother’s Day crafts or even shopping for gifts for Mom, while younger children will likely need some help from an adult.

Youngsters may not be able to take charge of Mother’s Day festivities alone, but they certainly have the energy and enthusiasm to chip in. Handmade craft gifts are a thoughtful way for young kids to show their love for Mom. Here are a few ideas that can occupy even the youngest of hands.

Handprint butterfly photo card

All that is necessary for this craft is a printed photograph of the child’s face, paper, scissors, glue, and finger paints. The child should dip hands into the

paint and make four handprints on paper in some preferred colors. When dry, cut around the perimeter of the handprints. These will serve as the “wings” of the butterfly. Glue the picture of the child’s face in the middle of a piece of paper or card stock. Draw a butterfly body underneath it (or print out a stock image to use). Draw antennae sticking out of the child’s head and attach the handprints around the head and butterfly body to make the wings.

Heartfelt masterpiece

Children can draw and color all over a large sheet of construction paper or another durable paper. An adult can then use another sheet of paper to make a frame mat of sorts, cutting out a heart shape from the middle. Both pieces of paper are then trimmed to the dimensions of a photo frame. The artwork is placed first and then the heart matting on top so

that the artwork will show through the heart shape. Frame everything together for a lasting memento.

Fuzzy flowers

Kids can make Mom a bouquet of flowers that will never wilt. Print a photo of the child’s face and attach it to a piece of circular card stock that is roughly six inches in diameter. Have the child paint a popsicle stick green, and then attach that to the back of the round card stock. The child then glues small fuzzy pom poms to the card stock surrounding the picture to make a flower. If desired, attach a magnet to the back of the flower so it can be secured to the refrigerator.

Crafts are a great gift option for young children looking to give something special to Mom on Mother’s Day.

36th KM Hall of Fame Saturday at Central Methodist Church

The 36th annual Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame banquet and induction ceremony will be held Saturday, May 6 at 6 p.m. at Central United Methodist Church Christian Activity Center.

Tickets are on sale at Paul Ingram’s Barber Shop downtown and will also be available at the door on the night of the ceremony.

Inductees include Miles Boyd, Chris Henson, Alex Goff, Cedric Thompson, Tim Hines and Suzette Feemster.

Boyd was one of the best athletes to come out of the Kings Mountain area,

excelling in football and basketball at Compact High School in the early sixties. His coach in both sports was the late John Blalock who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998.

Boyd scored 1,289 points during his Compact career and was the first quarterback in Compact High football history. He was MVP in basketball and football his senior year of 1964.

Chris Henson is probably the only athlete in KMHS history to make All-Conference in four sports during the same season. In the late 1980s

he starred in cross country, soccer, wrestling and baseball and was the Southwestern Conference MVP in both cross country and wrestling. He held the wrestling record for most wins in a season for several years. He went on to play baseball at Wingate University where he was a three-year starter and later coached at UNC Pembroke and East Tennessee State universities.

Alex Goff was a golf star in high school and college and continues to compete in tournaments in several states. He was Conference Player of the

Year all four years at Kings Mountain High School. He was the 3A Western champion in 2015 and NCHSAA tournament runner-up in 2018 with a season average of 68.5 strokes per match. He played four years at the University of Kentucky where he had 12 top 20 finishes in conference play and a career stroke average of 72.4. He was All-Southeastern Conference Academic all four years at UK.

Cedric Thompson was an outstanding and very versatile football player in high school and college. At KMHS, he established records for most receiv-

ing yards (963) in 2010. In 2011, he was the Conference Player of the Year and played in the East-West All-Star game. He was also All-Conference in basketball. He played football at East Carolina University.

Tim Hines, one of Thompson’s teammates at KMHS, was also a star in numerous sports. In 2010 he was the first Mountaineer receiver to record over 1,000 yards in a single season. In track, he was a member of the KMHS 2010 state champion 800 meter relay team and was All-Conference and team MVP. He went on to play

football at Davidson College where he was the Wildcats’ #1 receiver for two seasons. Suzette Feemster-Williams was KM High’s 1991 Athlete of the Year. She was also a three-sport star. She was a two-time All-Conference and team MVP in basketball. Her 21-point, nine rebound average earned her a spot on the All-Piedmont team. She was a three-year volleyball star and was All-Conference and team MVP. She earned a volleyball scholarship to NC Central University where she was a four-year AllCIAA selection.

Cramer’s Brittain no-hits KM nine

Rain was the big winner in Big South 3A Conference baseball last week but Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers did manage to get in one game on Tuesday before all the wet stuff began falling.

The Mountaineers, who entered the last two weeks undefeated in the conference, finished in third place after dropping their third straight loss to the Stuart Cramer Storm on Tuesday.

And, it was a Storm as their pitcher Nate Brittain shutout the Mountaineers 1-0 with a no-hitter. He faced only 23 batters and struck out 15 of them.

Zane Brockman took the loss for the Mountain-

eers despite giving up just four hits and striking out eight. Brockman was the only KM batter that Brittain didn’t strike out.

The Cramer defense committed only one error as the Storm went over the .500 mark for the BSC season with a 6-5 record. Kings Mountain dropped to 8-3 in the BSC and in third place behind Crest (10-1) and South Point (9-2).

Cramer was scheduled to visit Kings Mountain Monday night and the Mountaineers were slated to go to Crest last night. Crest will come to KM’s Lancaster Field Friday for the final game of the regular season.

KM Middle School tennis ends season with 6-3 mark

Kings Mountain Middle School’s tennis team finished its second season under Coach Ed Guy with a record of 6-3.

The last two matches with Crest were very close with Crest winning by narrow margins.

Coach Guy said he is pleased with the progress of the team and especially with the younger players. With all but one starter return, the Patriots look to a successful future.

Coach Guy is planning to visit the fifth grade students soon to present and develop an interest in the KMMS program.

Seanna Simon and

Dominic Allen both had hard fought matches at the 1-2 positions, losing by identical 9-7 scores.

“These players always play the top players on the opposing team and have worked hard to support the team’s play,” Coach Guy said. “They also combined to win another close doubles match by a score of 9-7. After losing their singles matches, they demonstrated a good fight to win this match.”

Cindy Tipton and Marquise Thomas gave a good effort during the season but lost their final matches 8-0 and 8-4. They lost the doubles match by a score

of 8-2.

Camden Morris and Landon Webster both played well with Morris winning 9-8 in a tie-breaker and Webster winning 8-4. They dropped their doubles match 8-1.

Coach Guy said he will start his summer tennis program the week of June 10. Sessions begin at 9:30 a.m. and end at 12 noon. There is no charge but parents are expected to bring four cans of Penn extra duty tennis balls for the summer.

There will be two separate sessions with beginners meeting on Mondays and Wednesdays and experienced players meeting

BSC BASEBALL

on Tuesday and Thursday. The clinic will continue until the end of July.

“Vacations and other summer activities will be excused so participants can enjoy all activities,” Guy said.

Tennis shoes, shorts, skirts and hats will be worn and be tennis appropriate, Guy noted. A towel, water bottle and tennis racquet are needed. If a student does not have a tennis racquet loan ers will be available. The clinic is for intermediate students through 10th grade. For more information contact Coach Guy at eguy@ carolina.rr.com or text 704473-3608.

Hospice Cleveland County announces new name, VIA Health Partners

Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region (HPCCR), and Hospice Cleveland County, announce their official name change to VIA Health Partners to reflect their expanding mission and continued focus on delivering a unique brand of exceptional care.

Over the past 45 years, HPCCR has grown organically and through mergers and regional startup operations, serving 32 counties throughout North and South Carolina. HPCCR has always been proud to include Hospice Cleveland County as a part of the HPCCR family.

“After considerable research and deliberation, our leadership and board made the decision to move forward with the name VIA Health Partners, a name that represents both what we do and how we do it,” said President and CEO, Peter Brunnick.

“The word VIA, by definition, means traveling through enroute to a destination, much like we do when we walk our final journey with our patients and families. The phrase Health Partners also reflects what we do in the health-care continuum. Whether we are working with a healthcare system, physicians’ practice, skilled nursing or assisted living community,

our goal is to be a value add to their mission and service to patients.”

VIA Health Partners will remain an independent community-based nonprofit organization committed to serving all citizens in the communities where they are located, regardless of their ability to pay or medical complexity.

VIA Health Partners began as Hospice at Charlotte, the state’s first hospice, in 1978 and then operated under the name Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region (HPCCR) for decades before its name change to VIA Health Partners in 2023.

Today VIA Health Partners serves 3,500 patients each day for hospice and palliative care services. Our service area encompasses 14 counties in North Carolina--Burke, Catawba, Cabarrus, Caldwell, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, McDowell, Mecklenburg, Polk, Rutherford, Stanly, and Union. Its service area in South Carolina includes Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Chester, Chesterfield, Fairfield, Greenville, Greenwood, Kershaw, Lancaster, Laurens, Newberry, Oconee, Pickens, Saluda, Spartanburg, Union, and York counties.

his 40th stolen base on the season, Snethen finishes the regular season in third place in the NJCAA Division II standings for stolen bases. The Yetis travel to Morehead City as the #2 seed from the West Divi-

sion and will face the #3 seed from the East Division, Pitt Community College. The teams will play Thursday, 4 p.m. at Big Rock Stadium on opening day of the Region 10 DII baseball tournament.

Brooke Dover pitched all 14 innings over both games, striking out eight Bulldog batters and giving up only two runs and six total hits in the victories. In game one Mallory Haynes would have four hits, including a home run and four runs scored.

“Brooke pitched two outstanding games and we had key hits to get the wins,” said Head Coach Ronald Beaver. “Our first goal was to make the playoffs and our second goal was to advance. Now we’re on to the final round of the tournament.” The Yetis move on to the double-elimination tournament to be hosted by Louisburg College next weekend. CCC will open-play against Louisburg next Friday.

KMHS students answer the call for help

Students raised $1,214.34 during their second Annual Kings Mountain High School

Current Events fundraiser benefiting Ukraine and earthquake relief in Turkey and Syria.

Fundraising surpassed the goal of $1,000 thanks to generous donations from the student body, faculty, staff, and substitute teacher Mr. Lockhart and his congregation at Ellis Chapel.

The project was spear-

headed by Current Events, an elective class taught by Sharon Lease. The Student Participation Organization and Math Club helped raise the money.

Students sacrificed their lunchtime to raise money for the fundraiser. In return, they were rewarded with pajama day and hat day, which grew increasingly popular. All money will be sent to Samaritan’s Purse in Charlotte, NC.

Top high school welders compete

On Friday, April 28, 2023, Cleveland Community College held its second annual welding competition.

The competition featured the top four welders from Burns, Crest, Kings Mountain and Shelby high schools. This year’s group of competitors included four female students and one hearing-impaired student. Competitors were given specifications to perform specific types of welds and had 2-1/2 hours to complete the challenge.

Judges Curtis Rippy from Maco, Inc. and Corey Dubesko from IMA examined each competitor’s welds. Using a set of criteria based on industry standards, they selected the top welder from each school and the top three overall winners.

The overall winners were: first-place Jackson Pence, second-place Madison Lemmons and thirdplace MacKenzie Canipe.

First and second place each received a prize pack with a large tool bag, welding helmet and weld-

ing gloves; the third-place winner received a helmet and gloves. These prizes and lunch were provided by the event sponsor AndyOxy. In addition to the prize pack, the first-place winner was presented with a hand-crafted belt buckle made by CCC instructor Michael Beatty.

The top competitors from each school were: Burns: MacKenzie Canipe, Crest- Jackson Pence; Kings Mountain: Adam Harrelson, and Shelby- Jaydan Tate. They received a $750 scholarship to attend CCC’s welding program.

The scholarship for the top Crest winner was provided by the Michael David Scott Parsons Endowed Scholarship fund. Established by Parsons’ family and friends in his memory, the scholarship is awarded annually to a student enrolled in any vocational diploma program, with preference given to students in the welding program and students demonstrating financial need.

The scholarship for Shelby’s top finisher was provided by The Gabe DiBruno Memorial Welding Scholarship. This endowed scholarship was established in memory of Gabe DiBruno, who was the top finisher from Shelby High School in last year’s competition. This scholarship is awarded annually to a Shelby High School welding student.

All sixteen competitors received a welding helmet provided by Cleveland County Schools.

Competitors from each high school were:

Burns: MacKenzie Canipe, Audrianna Clemmer, Drake Freeman, Bo Westbrook

Crest: Dillon Kirby, Madison Lemmons, Jackson Pence, Drew Theis

Kings Mountain: Canyon Evans, Justice Fussell, Adam Harrelson, Brianna Harrelson Shelby: Justin Franklin, Tucker Ive, Dan Martinez, Jaydan Tate .

STAR gazing at North Elementary

It was a night full of science activities and STAR gazing at North Elementary on Friday, April 21. North families enjoyed a pizza dinner along with various games and activities that

were “out of this world.”

Students learned how to walk on the moon, created their own constellations, and stargazed with a local astronomer. This family event also offered take home science kit activities

"Worms Ate My Garbage" presented at North Elementary

On Friday, April 28, Cleveland County Soil and Water Conservation Education Specialist Amanda Strickland did a hands-on program at North Elementary School entitled "Worms Ate My Garbage" for the 1st grade classes.

The lesson began with the story "A Diary of a Worm" and students enjoyed gummy worms!

Afterwards the students learned about worms and were able to observe real life worms and work as scientists with magnifying glasses to make observations. Some worms were more active than others, so our Tigers had to be careful when holding them. North School thanked their presenter, Amanda Strickland, for her visit. Fun learning indeed!

Page 8B
Students and their families enjoyed cornhole and other activities during the event. Students learn about various constellations. This students experiences what it feels like to walk on the moon. A local astronomer helped students get a better look at the moon and constellations during North School’s STAR gazing event. Budding scientists learn the importance of worms in the world. Learning with friends makes the lesson more fun. This student takes a closer look with a magnifying glass. Cleveland County Soil and Water Conservation Education Specialist Amanda Strickland prepares for her lesson on “Worms Ate My Garbage.” First graders get hands-on with worms. Photos by Anna Hughes Worms play a vital part in the ecosystem, as students learned during this visit with Cleveland County Soil and Water Conservation Education Specialist Amanda Strickland.
