Dr. George Plonk dies at age 103 By Loretta Cozart Dr. George Plonk, 103, passed away on April 24 in the very hospital that he took care of so many Kings Mountain citizens since 1957. Dr. Plonk grew up with nine siblings on a farm between Kings Mountain and Cherryville. His education took him from the one-room Plonk schoolhouse to Kings Mountain High School, to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, to Jefferson Medical School in Philadelphia, to the University of Pennsylvania, where he received his certificate from the American Board of Sur-

gery declaring that he was a Board-certified surgeon in 1952. He served two years in the US Army during World War II as a physician in Europe, then worked in general practice in Murphy, NC and Raleigh, NC until he returned to Kings Mountain in 1957 to become Kings Mountain Hospital’s first resident surgeon. He retired from his practice in 1984. Dr. Plonk was well-known for his ability to tell a good story and he continued that tradition throughout his lifetime. According to his family, “He told a story with passion, See PLONK, Page 7A

■ OBITUARIES

Dr. George Webb Plonk Sr. KINGS MOUNTAIN, NC – “To You, O Lord I lift up my soul” Psalm 25 George W. Plonk, MD passed away on April 24th at Kings Mountain Hospital after a brief illness. He was 103 years young. Born on March 17, 1919 in Kings Mountain, he was the son of the late Clarence and Ellen Plonk. He was the seventh of ten children. George graduated from Kings Mountain High School where he played football and baseball. He was a proud Tar Heel Class of 1940 at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. In 1941 he married Margaret Cooper despite the fact that she was a Duke graduate! After college he attended Carolina Medical School (at that time only a two year program) and transferred to Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and later did his residency at Lankenau Hospital. He subsequently passed the American Board of Surgery exam. His medical training had been interrupted by World War II where he served two years as a physician with last year being in Italy at the end of the war. Later in life, he was proud to take part in the Flight of Honor and to be recognized as a veteran at the World War II Memorial in Washington DC. Once he completed his training in general surgery, he took his family to Raleigh and joined the practice of Dr. Gordon Sinclair who he credited with teaching him the importance of a compassionate bedside manner. In 1957 he began practicing in Kings Mountain. Dr Plonk felt privileged and humbled to be able to serve and care for the citizens of Kings Mountain and surrounding areas. He was respected by his medical colleagues and loved by his patients. He retired from his practice in 1984. He did assist Dr. Joe Zucker an orthopedic surgeon, for several years until Dr. Zucker moved to Charlotte. Dr Plonk was an avid horseman who developed a love for the Paso Fino breed. He loved trail riding and even had some success in national PasoFina horse shows. He was a sports fan cheering loudly for his grandchildrens’ events, the Tar Heels, and the Braves. He enjoyed working out at the YMCA and catching up with old friends and new. He was also active in community service as he was a member of the Lions and Rotary clubs. He was always very active in the church and served on the church coun-

cil at Resurrection Lutheran Church for a number of years. He and Esther Plonk are also founding members of Advent Lutheran Church. George loved to tell stories and could hold the attention of both young and old for hours as he talked about his life and its adventures. He told a story with passion, humor, and humility making it interesting and endearing regardless of topic or timeframe. The joy of Dr Plonk’s life was his family. He enjoyed 62 wonderful years of marriage to his high school sweetheart, Margaret who passed away in 2003. They had settled in Kings Mountain where they raised their five children. In 2004, Dr. Plonk married Esther Muench and further expanded his family with the addition of her three children: Jeff and Jim Muench, and Jennie Laney and their families. They were married for 17 years. Esther was a very loving, caring wife who added much happiness and companionship to his later years. One of his proudest moments occurred on his 100th birthday when Governor Roy Cooper honored him with induction into the Order of the Long Leaf Pine. This is the highest award given by the governors of North Carolina since 1963 for persons who have made significant contributions to the state and their communities. He is survived by his wife, Esther Muench Plonk; one sister, Clara Politis; a sister-in-law, Dorcas Plonk, and his 5 children: Carole Fenimore Haas Gravagno, Peggy Pollack (Ken), George Webb Plonk (Judy), Barbara Bridges (Bill) and Becky Loftin (Bill). He was very proud of his sixteen grandchildren and would boast about “the ones who made him great”: his multitude of great grandchildren. He took great care and attention to keep track of everyone: always showing up for weddings, baptisms, graduations, and celebrations. He wrote wonderfully expressive letters, sent cards, and was quick to pick up the phone and check on loved ones. His family has been blessed to know his unconditional love and support in the form of presence, advice, cheers, laughter, and hugs. His stories are legend and he regaled anyone who would listen right up to the last week. The family would like to thank the staff of Summit Place and Kings Mountain Hospital for their exceptional care of Dr Plonk. A family service was held at 11:00 am Saturday, April 30 at Advent Lutheran Church in Kings Mountain. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Advent Lutheran Church, Cleveland County Hospice or the charity of your choice. Guest register is available at: www.harrisfunerals.com.

OPINION

Wednesday, May 4, 2022

TODAY’S QUOTE:

Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose. –Lyndon B. Johnson

Pieces of Kings Mountain History This is Teacher Appreciation week nationwide, and I would LORETTA like to take COZART a moment to thank all teachers in Kings Mountain, both current and retired, for their care of young people. I am a graduate of Kings Mountain District Schools, the predecessor of the consolidated countywide school system we currently have in place. I attended my elementary school years at North School. My first-grade teacher was Mrs. Ruth Beam, and she ran a tight classroom. Of course, teaching first grade can be akin to herding cats, but Mrs. Beam trained us well for the remainder of our school life.

Mrs. Plyler was my fourth-grade teacher, and I knew going in what would be expected of me, because she had a reputation for being strict. We learned much in that year, and not all was learned from books. Once a student used God’s name in vain on the way to the playground, and Mrs. Plyler used that time to teach us why that was not acceptable behavior. We had a learning moment on the playground that day and I remember the exact spot where it occurred. In Junior High School, I learned from more wonderful teachers. Mrs. Kiser taught science and I loved her class. Miss Albergine had a positive impact on me, also. I helped in gym and lead “body class,” as she called it. During those three years, I learned

responsibility to others, both to friends and to teachers. High School brought a new group if educators. Mr. Phil Bryson was my Homeroom and Biology teacher. He worked with me to understand the concept of probability; I am still not certain how much I really understood. Carl and Carolyn McWhirter were kind to me, also. And, without

them, I would not have gone to college at UNCChapel Hill. I am eternally grateful. I had countless teachers who took time to nurture me. I cannot mention them all, but each was unique and had a profound impact on my life. I am humbled by them and my thanks for their kindness and patience with me can never be expressed enough. As a student, you cannot always see how a teacher perceived you. More importantly, you do not know if you might have impacted them. With the McWhirter’s, I was able to understand we had a special bond. With others, after I left

their tutelage, our relationship ended. Reflecting on those early school years, I have come to appreciate teachers who run a tight classroom. As a student, you know what is expected and the classroom is a space for learning. Two months ago, I saw a Facebook post by Charles Plyler. In it, he posted my fourthgrade class photo, found among Mrs. Plyler’s mementos from her years of teaching. There I was, a skinny, goofy-grinned girl in pig tales. That picture took me back to Mrs. Plyler’s class. I remembered talking with her, and that she

had an absence from the classroom for a couple of weeks during that year. I had not thought of that in quite some time. We planned for her return and when the day came, all the students stood and applauded as she walked into the classroom. It was a warm memory that I remember fondly. As a child, I was blessed with good teachers. I thank them for their kind nurturing, patience, and kindness. And even if my understanding of probability is a bit fuzzy, I am certain these teachers made a profound impact on my life.

Finding hope and life before death

Dr. George Plonk's Paso Fino Balalaika La Estancia was declared the National Champion and National Grand Champion In the national championship in Georgia. Pictured are Tamara Fullerton and Dr. Plonk getting ready for a show. Photo courtesy Shirley Harry and Ron and Robin Elbon.

Looking Back

Dr. George Plonk became interested in Paso Fino horses the day he saw and bought Balalaika La Estancia. Plonk, whose family raised horses, had been an avid rider all his life. Once the horse was trained, Plonk showed her on his 80th birthday in Perry, GA. The horse would not do all its gaits and he and his horse were politely excused. Just a few months later, Balalaika La Estancia was judged a National Champion and a National Grand Champion at a competition in the same arena. In an article for the Herald dated

May 18, 2000, Dr. Plonk said, “I've been involved in horses about all my life. I used to have American Saddle Bred horses. I just got into the Paso Finos about 15 years ago. But I didn’t have show quality horses. They were all registered, but they were sort of pleasure riding horses that you ride on the trail." He added, "I sold all of the grade horses and we bought this one, and I have four now," he said. "They are a pleasure to ride. They're the smoothest gaited horse there is, I think."

enjoying our living. God didn’t make us to be miserable. We make ourselves miserable. Sickness makes us miserable. Addictions destroy us and others. Death of the people we love zaps us and creates major voids in our lives. Yet, life can only be lived forward and often this is where we get stuck. Too often we put our cars in ‘park’ and start watching the world go by us. We look in the rearview mirror. Life is whizzing by and we can’t seem to get our foot back on the accelerator to start moving again. This becomes a very stagnant and unhappy way to live. Actually, it’s not a life at all. Living before you die must have some routine. Go to work. Go someplace. Do something. It doesn’t have to be exotic or glorious. Often routine is the same thing every day. There is some peace in routine. When our routine and entire lives are shaken, like what is happening in Ukraine, then every minute is about surviving another day. Survival mode for you may be doctor’s visits.

“Creating Business For People” ®

Making a plan for the next five years or year of your life. Reconnecting to some family or a friend or two. Making peace with the past and embracing today. The key word for life is hope. Peace is another key word but peace doesn’t exist without hope. If we have hope we can look forward to life. We hope we have enough health. We hope we have enough money. The people of Ukraine have hope they can overcome Russia. This keeps many of them going. Many have fled the country in search of hope. Find the hope you need to embrace the rest of your life. Hope in family, friends, hobbies and much more is good. Just be very aware, even they may disappoint you. Mainly, find hope in you. God didn’t make junk. Too often life, events, mistakes, and sometimes even people we are close, to make it difficult for us to see our worth and it tarnishes our spirit. Hope is an inside job that starts now.

GUILTY From Page 1A According to filed plea documents and the plea hearings, from October 2020 to December 2021, Page and Teague engaged in an investment scheme that defrauded hundreds of investors, some of whom were at or near retirement age, of more than $4 million. Court documents show that the defendants falsely represented to victims that Page and Teague were running a hedge fund in Kings Mountain, N.C., D&T Investment Group (D&T), that invested in various securities, including stock of well-known companies like Apple. Contrary to representations made to victim investors, D&T was not a hedge fund and it did not hold any securities licenses or registrations. Also, Page and Teague were not licensed to sell se-

Congratulations

curities and did not have a background associated with the sale of securities. In fact, prior to orchestrating the investment scheme the defendants sold campers. According to court documents and admissions made in court, Page and Teague required investors to sign, among other documents, an investment contract with D&T. These documents contained false information, including that D&T would guarantee 100% of the investors’ initial investment, and that investors would receive 70% of the trading profits. In reality, the investors’ money was not guaranteed, and the purported “profits” investors received were Ponzi-style payments, whereby the defendants used new investors’ money to make payments to existing investors. To cover up the fraud, Page and Teague sent victim investors monthly statements that reflected fictitious trading gains. When certain investors and D&T employees began to question the legitimacy of D&T’s operations, Page created fictitious screenshots of various

Dad inspects the finished project. financial accounts that reflected inflated D&T account balances. For example, Page created a fake screenshot of a D&T brokerage account that reflected a balance of over $16,000,000, when in reality the account had a balance of less than $7.00. Contrary to representations made to victims, their money was not generally invested in securities. In addition to making Ponzi payments to investors, a significant portion of the funds was used to pay excessive salaries and other compensation to D&T employees, including to members of Page’s family. For example, Page paid several D&T employees annual salaries of over $100,000 and also paid certain employees several thousand dollars each for getting the D&T company logo tattooed on their bodies. The defendants also squandered victims’ money on personal expenses such as clothing, jewelry, travel, luxury car rentals, and to make cash withdrawals. On December 2, 2021, as the fraudulent scheme was collapsing, the defen-

dants traveled to Italy. On the same day, Page informed D&T employees, who did not know that D&T was a fraud, that they would be closing the company. The pair was arrested on New Year’s Eve at JFK Airport in New York upon their voluntary return to the United States. The defendants were released on bond with home detention and location monitoring following the plea hearings. Page pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud, which carries a maximum prison term of 20 years and a $250,000 fine. Teague pleaded guilty to one count of securities fraud, which carries a maximum prison term of five years and a $250,000 fine. A sentencing date for the defendants has not been set. In making the announcement U.S. Attorney King thanked the Securities Division of the North Carolina Secretary of State, the FBI and USPIS for their investigation of the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel Ryan, of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Charlotte, oversees the prosecution.

Blessings or Cursing -Your Choice Day, Cinco de Mayo, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, and other notable days. We have a lot of celebrations in this fifth month, which I guess it’s fitting since five is considered the number of Grace. All these things are great in their own right, but in Deuteronomy 30:19, is one of the most powerful but often overlooked scriptures when it comes to God’s Grace in our own lives, our destiny and for those who are attached to us. We often get upset or frustrated when things don’t go well for us, but before we start blaming others or the situation, you must ask yourself,

I call heaven a n d earth to record this day against you, that I have set beRev. John Houze fore you People’s Baptist Church life and death, blessings and cursing: therefore, choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live. (Deut. 30:19). As we go into this fifth month, there are a lot of holidays, May Day, Mother’s

what part did you play and what decisions did you make? How hard is it for you to admit mistakes? Well, confessions lead to blessings and the truth will still make you free. God gives simple instructions for blessings, (1) Love God with all your heart, soul and all your might. This can only happen when we acknowledge Him as sovereign; just believing in Him doesn’t cut it, because even the devil does that with fear and trembling but does not obey or serve Him. Does God take priority in your life or just when it’s convenient; are there any sacrifices in your life; be hon-

est with yourself. (2) Obey His voice. Some of you are saying, “God has never spoken to me”. I can show you He does speak to you. On one occasion, I served with our jail ministry who were sharing the gospel with twelve or fifteen men. I told them God speaks to each of us and naturally, I received some push back. To prove my point I asked them, “have you ever said something told me not to do it”. Amazingly, they all answered, yes. Then I asked, “if you had listened would things have been better?” Their response was overwhelmingly, yes. I told them

that was the Holy Spirit telling you not to do it and you ignored him. How often do you ignore him? (3) Obey His commandments and statues. How familiar are you with the word of God or do you just do whatever you think is right? The latter is not the Righteousness of God. I challenge you to choose blessings. Aren’t you tired of the curses? Choosing blessings is not that hard. If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for your loved ones. We all have the power to choose. Be Blessed.

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. –James 1:5-8

Mountaineers shutout Ashbrook on Senior Night, host Chargers Friday for Big South Conference title Senior Night could not have gone any better for Kings Mountain High’s baseball team Friday night at Lancaster Field. The team honored its three seniors – Charlie Melton, Maddox Brown and Peyton Fisher – before the game and the trio teamed up to pitch the Mountaineers over the Ashbrook Green Wave 10-0 in a 4 ½ inning contest stopped by the state’s 10-run rule. While that victory was sweet in front of a huge home crowd, the most important games of the conference season take place this week when the Mountaineers face county rival Crest to decide the Big South championship. Heading into last night’s game in Boiling Springs the Mountaineers

had a one game lead over the Chargers and could clinch the title with a win. A loss would mean the championship would be decided Friday when the Chargers come to Lancaster Field for a 7 p.m. contest that completes the regular season. After that, both teams will await the state 3A seeding and first round opponents for Tuesday, May 10. Melton worked the first four innings to get the win over Ashbrook. He fanned five batters along the way. Brown struck out one and Fisher two in the top of the fifth to seal the victory. The Mountaineers got home runs from Zane Brockman in the second inning and Cole Irby in the third to go with singles from

Bebe Moore, Brown and Jacob Hamrick. They also benefited from seven walks and three hit batsmen. The Mountaineers got on board 2-0 in the bottom of the first as wildness by Ashbrook pitchers showed up early. After Moore’s hit, Hamrick was walked and an out later Brown’s single to left plated the first run. Another out later, Cole Irby was hit by a pitch to load the sacks and Fisher drew a walk to plate the second run. The Mountaineers increased the lead to 4-0 in the second on Brockman’s high blast over the centerfield fence after Moore had reached base on a fielder’s choice. See SENIOR, Page 2B

of the team were Dawson Adams, Carson Bailey, Joey Blanton and Tyler Withers. Just like in 2017, Kings Mountain didn’t just have the championship team but had the conference championship player Will Spicer. Spicer’s low season score of 65 made him the match medalist and his season stroke average of 69.8 earned him the Conference Player of the Year award. For the year, he had a stroke total of 419. Three other Mountaineers made the All-Conference team, including: Cooper Putnam, who shot a 71 to finish sixth in the conference; Thomas Spicer, who shot a 77 to finish ninth in the conference;

Mountaineers fall to Jets 8-5

NCHSAA Board of Directors concludes Spring Meeting

Enka erased a 5-2 deficit in the top of the seventh inning to force a 5-5 tie and extra innings, then scored three runs in the top of the ninth to defeat Kings Mountain 8-5 in a non-conference baseball game Wednesday night at Lancaster Field. Wyatt Davis held the Jets to just three hits and struck out 11 over the first six innings but ran out of his state-allotted pitch count and had to leave the mound. That gave the Jets new hope and they took advantage of two Mountaineer errors in the top of the seventh to tie the game and force the extra innings. The Mountaineers threatened in the bottom of the eighth after loading the bases on a Cole Irby single and two walks. But it ended on a two-out, called third

strike. They went three-up, three-down in the seventh and ninth innings. Kings Mountain jumped on top in the bottom of the first inning when Bebe Moore doubled to right and scored on a two-out single by Maddox Brown. The Jets scored two unearned runs in the top of the third to go up 2-1, and Peyton Fisher’s towering home run over the left field fence knotted things up at 2-2 in the bottom of the fourth. Kings Mountain took advantage of back-to-back walks to open the fifth and went on to score three runs on an Enka error and a two-run single by Brown. Parker Roberts came to the mound and shut down the rally with an infield fly and strikeout and went on to get the win.

The NCHSAA Board of Directors has been hard at work conducting the business of the Association, completing the Spring Meeting last week. Board members were hard at work addressing changes necessitated by the Association’s agreement (MOU) with the State Board of Education. The Board took action on many items during its meeting.

CCC From Page 5B to validate my passion for Esthetics. . .I am so proud of how hard I worked and the looks I created. I would do it again a million times

if I could.” There were several components to the competition including an oral communications assessment and four skill performance tasks. In addition, each participant was required to turn in a professional résumé before the competition.

The technical skills performance portion of the competition assessed skills in facial massage, basic facial, beauty makeup application, and fantasy makeup application. For the fantasy makeup portion of the competition, participants were given the theme Dis-

ney. Each contestant could choose a character or inspiration from the theme, and they had 60 minutes to complete the task. “The competition was a great way to improve our skills and time management while also being in a creative head space and hav-

If your Mom lives far away, consider a gift card from her favorite restaurant. 2. Host a Mother’s Day lunch or dinner at your house or a local park. Invite the extended family and ask everyone to bring something to share.

The Perfect Gift... for the Perfect Mother

Mother’s Day is a celebration of women who devote so much of their effort and energy to their families. Celebrating Mom on Mother’s Day lets her know all of her efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. Mothers may perform similar tasks, but no two moms are the same. Finding ways to celebrate Mom’s uniqueness can make the day that much more meaningful and memorable. The Crafter Mothers who are avid crafters may enjoy a craft-themed Mother’s Day. A family crafting project can make for a fun afternoon and produce mementos that Mom will cherish for years to come. Dads and kids can plan the project in advance without Mom’s knowledge, arranging all of the materials ahead of time and setting up the crafting station the night before or while Mom is relaxing on Mother’s Day morning. Kids can even get a head start on the day by making their own craft for Mom and giving it to her as a Mother’s Day present. Dads

Celebrating 100 years of Moms! by MELISSA HUCAL (from Macaroni KID.com)

One hundred years ago, in the year 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill recognizing Mother's Day as a national holiday. In fact, over the past 100 years, Mother's Day has become the third most celebrated holiday, ranking behind only Christmas and Easter, and is celebrated in more than 50 countries. As moms, we’re in good company! There are an estimated 85.4 million moms in the United States. That means you’re not only one in a million, you’re one in 85 million! Any way you say it, “Mom” is “Mom!” In a majority of world languages, the word for “mother” begins with the letter “M” or a “ma,” “mo” or “me” sound. You’re never too old to be a mother! In 2003, a retired schoolteacher in India gave birth to her first child at the age of 65. Mother’s Day means a break from the kitchen! It’s the busiest day of the year for restaurants, with over 60 percent of families choosing can keep the craft theme going at dinner and get a laugh out of Mom by pouring her a craft beer when dinner is served. The Reader A 2017 survey from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that women read more than men. Women read an average of 19.8 minutes per day, which can make a Mother’s Day focused on Mom’s love of books an ideal and unique way to spend the day. Kids can write Mom their own books, and Dad can help put them together. Dads can visit rare bookstores and look for original copies of Mom’s favorite books that she might not find elsewhere. The Nature Lover Fishing and other outdoor activities might have a reputation as predominantly male hobbies, but studies show that’s not really the case. A 2016 report from the Outdoor Foundation found that 46 percent

to dine out and give mom a day off from cooking. Moms invented alphabet blocks, diapers and folding cribs! It’s no secret that moms are the “mother of all inventors,” but would it surprise you to know that all these great tools that make it a bit easier to be a mom were invented in the late 1800’s? Even then, moms knew what they needed to get the job done! A mother’s influence is far reaching – even into your children’s adult lives! Bet you didn't know that Mr. Rogers wore sweaters knitted by his real-life mother on his popular television show, ‘Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood’. There are many ways to celebrate Mother’s Day! Whether you receive handmade cards and gifts, flowers or simply spend time with your family, Mother’s Day is celebrated with enthusiasm. In fact, in the former country of Yugoslavia, the kids play a key role! On Mother’s Day, the tradition is to tie up their mothers and only set them free when they reward their children with a small treat! Happy Mother’s Day! of people who participated in outdoor activities were women. If Mom is a nature enthusiast, families can plan a Mother’s Day enjoying the great outdoors, even giving Mom a new fishing pole, hiking gear or other items that align with her favorite nature activity. The Relaxation Specialist Of course, some mothers may want to simply unwind with a relaxing morning at the spa on Mother’s Day. In fact, the 2018 U.S. Spa Industry Study found that the spa industry has enjoyed seven consecutive years of consistent growth, with more than 187 billion spa visits in 2017 alone. A relaxing morning at the spa can be the perfect way for moms to begin Mother’s Day before they enjoy a brunch of dinner out with their families. Mother’s Day celebrations can be as unique as the women being celebrated.
