Josh Turner headlines the 7th Inning Stretch Festival The popular 7th Inning Stretch Festival is returning to Uptown Shelby on August 6, after a two-year absence caused by the COVID-19 virus. The festival is sponsored by The American Legion Department of North Carolina. The festival is held the Saturday before the games begin to

celebrate our community for all their hard work each year for ALWS. This year’s headliner concert will feature country music artist Josh Turner, a native of South Carolina, and a multi-platinum-selling star. For nearly two decades, he has been one of country music’s most recognizable

voices, selling more than 8.5 million units and amassing more than 2.5 billion global streams. His wife Jennifer plays keyboards and sings background vocals with the band. In December 2001 Turner made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry and received a standing ovation

for his original song “Long Black Train.” His album by the same name was certified gold within a year of its release; the song spent more than 40 weeks on the Billboard country charts. A secondary stage with local performers will feature Tangerine Trees, a Beatles See 7TH INNING, Page 2A

Cleveland County COVID level rises to medium Cleveland County’s COVID-19 level has risen to medium, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Between July 7 and July 14, 1,535 COVID tests were performed countywide and 24 people tested positive. As of Saturday, July 13,

in North Carolina 41 counties were ranked high for COVID-19; compared to the week before at 18. Forty-one counties tested at the medium level, and 18 counties tested low. Across the state, early warning indicators show an

increase from 15.8 million Coronavirus particles in the wastewater for the previous week, rising to 16.8 million particles last week. Increased levels like these can show early signs of community spread and illness. However, emergency

room visits across the state did not rise during the same timeframe, so it remains to be seen if this rise in particles will impact positive cases. With 97 percent of hospitals in NC reporting, a total See COVID, Page 2A

Old Pauline Store to be demolished By Loretta Cozart The Pauline Store, at 205 Walker Street, will soon be demolished. City of Kings Mountain Code Enforcement Director Clint Houser met with the owner

last November. At that time, the owner agreed to remove the building in 180 days; that deadline passed on June 11. Houser asked city council to approve demolition of the walls that remain of the structure, and they unanimously approved his request. In a subsequent interview with See PAULINE, Page 4A

■ OBITUARIES Gaston County confirms

sixth rabies case

Lillian Lovelace Harmon Rogers SHELBY, NC – Lillian Lovelace Harmon Rogers, 90, of Shelby, NC, passed away on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 at Atrium Health Cleveland in Shelby, NC. She was born in Cleveland County, NC, daughter of the late Oscar Freddie and Arcie Bell Lovelace and was preceded in death by her first husband of 48 years, William Brunson Harmon, and her second husband of 13 years, Robert Hamer Rogers Jr. Lillian was also preceded in death by her brother, Billy Basil Lovelace. She was a former member of Oak Grove Baptist Church for more than 70 years where she was very active. After her marriage to Mr. Rogers, Lillian joined Central United Methodist Church in Shelby, where she continued to be very active. She taught Sunday School at both Oak Grove and Central UMC for many years and loved being a part of the church community. Lillian worked in personnel in the textile industry most of her life. She enjoyed staying active and spending time with those she loved most, her family and friends. Her kindness, guidance, and love will be missed dearly by everyone who knew Lillian. She is survived by her daughter: Kimberley Harmon Franks and husband Terry G. Franks; grandchildren: Melissa Franks Haber and husband Michael, and William Lalon Franks and wife Rose; great-grandchildren: Thomas Franks and Ellison Haber and sister: Carolyn Lovelace Lail Funeral service was held on Friday, July 15, 2022 at 2:00 PM in the Ollie Harris Memorial Chapel with Reverends Ron Caulder and David Lee officiating Visitation was on Friday, July 15, 2022 from 1:00 PM to 1:50 PM prior to the service at Harris Funeral Home Internment was held in Oak Grove Baptist Church Cemetery. Guest register is available at: www.harrisfunerals.com. Harris Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kings Mountain, NC is in charge of arrangements.

COVID From Page 1A of 970 cases of COVID were reported last week. The Intensive Care hospital beds in use were 1,747. Fifty-one percent of Cleveland County residents are fully vaccinated against COVID, and 66.8 percent have received one dose. Governor Cooper ended North Carolina’s COVID state of emergency on Friday, July 15, as Coronavirus numbers across the state and nation continue to rise with the new omicrons BA.5 subvariant. The state of emergency also provided protections against COVID price gouging. Since COVID-19 began, there have been 2,909,068 positive cases in the state. Of those, 25,395 people have died from the virus.

Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement received a call regarding a positive rabies specimen from the North Carolina State Lab on Tuesday, July 12. On Sunday, July 10, at 9:04 pm, Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement responded to a call for service in the 500 block of Lewis Farm Road in Bessemer City, NC regarding a skunk found in the front yard at a residence. The skunk was foaming at the mouth and appeared to be seizing. Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement captured and processed the skunk. The skunk specimen was sent to the State Lab where it tested positive for rabies. Animal Care and Enforcement completed a neighborhood canvas in the 500 block of Lewis Farm Road, Bessemer City, NC to notify the community of the positive rabies result and to verify rabies vaccinations for family animals in the area. Gaston County Animal Care and Enforcement also notified

the Gaston County Department Health and Human Services. The Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement stresses the importance of having an up-to-date rabies vaccination for all your pets. By keeping your pet’s current on their rabies vaccines, you are protecting them from contracting the disease from wildlife and spreading the disease to your family and other animals and people in the community. This represents the sixth confirmed rabies case in Gaston County this year. No further information is currently available.

GCP Animal Care partially pauses animal intake until August 1 Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement requests help from the community. The animal shelter has confirmed positive cases of Feline Panleukopenia in our cat population and Canine Parvovirus in the dog population. At this point, the spread of these viruses is isolated to certain areas of the shelter. However, these viruses are highly contagious. The suggested protocol to control the spread of these viruses inside the shelter, is for Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement to partially suspend animal intake at the shelter. During this period, our exposed cat and dog popu-

lations will be isolated and monitored closely for any clinical signs of the virus. The shelter remains open to the public for adoptions of our healthy animals. We anticipate that the shelter will resume animal intakes for both dogs and cats on August 1. Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement appreciates your assistance and understanding. We apologize for any inconveniences this puts on our community. We look forward to returning to normal operations. Please refer to our social media sites or contact us at the shelter (704-922-8677) for more information.

SCHOOL

To obtain a transfer for a child into Cleveland County Schools from a district outside of Cleveland County, parents must complete an Application for Change of Pupil Assignment Form available from the Central Administrative Office or any of the schools. Each year, the applicant must reapply. A check for $1414 must be submitted with the application. Out-of-district students attending Cleveland County Schools will be assessed an annual tuition of $1414. Parents must also obtain a formal release from the school system that the child is assigned. Although the superintendent may give temporary approval of the transfer request, final approval is granted by the Board of Education. The Board also will grant requests for transfer to other school systems if it feels a student's need can be better met elsewhere. Applications for transfers to other school systems also are available at the Central Administrative Office or from any of our schools.

From Page 1A immediately enrolled in and allowed to attend school, even if the child or his or her parents cannot produce such records. In addition, parents must show proof of residency (lease or real estate document, power bill, etc.).

CCSO updates scam alert Last week, Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office updated an earlier scam alert saying the scam involves someone contacting citizens, stating they have a warrant, and telling them to get a prepaid credit card or money card to handle the issue. When the victim provides the PIN, the money is taken from the card and is untraceable. Since that recent post, they received more information on this scam The callers are saying they are a deputy from the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office (using correct names of deputies), telling individuals to buy the money cards, and take them to the Sheriff’s Office (with

the correct address). This is making the victims believe the scam is legitimate. This is not legitimate; it is a scam. Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office does not solicit money over the phone and does not accept prepaid cards such as Green Dot. There is a warning in a big red box directly above the PIN on the back of the Green Dot MoneyPak packaging that states the following: “Beware of scams asking for payment with MoneyPak! MoneyPak cannot be used for payments like taxes, bills, loans, warrants or bail. Once MoneyPak is used funds cannot be refunded.”

CCS Board Member under fire over Facebook post By Loretta Cozart Cleveland County Schools Board of Education member Danny Blanton DANNY BLANTON

was under fire on WBTV July 13, over a post he made to his Facebook page. The image was shared from another person’s post and featured a wooden paddle with the phrase, “Make Kids Great Again,” along with the image of an Ameri-

can flag on it. In the story, Blanton defended his post saying it was about his own paddling in school and how he felt it helped him. In an interview with WBTV, he said, “That was my personal opinion. That was not

me saying ‘bring that thing back and we wear every kid out.’ No, absolutely no.” Cleveland County School District does not allow corporate punishment; however, the state of North Carolina has no regulations

against it if the school district allows it, and it can only be administered with staff supervision and the student’s parent(s) must be notified. As of July 13, the post had been removed.

Genesis 13:8-9 (NIV) states: “So Abram said to Lot, “Let’s not have any quarreling between you and me, or between your herders and mine, for we are close relatives. Is not the whole land before you?

Kings Mountain Historical Museum will hold a WWII Living History Day event on Saturday July 30, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Admission is free! The Kings Mountain Historical Museum invites

the public to come out and see a World War II timeline camp. Various living history displays, and reenactors will be present on the museum grounds to interact with the museum guests telling of the U.S. military involvement in

the European Theater of Operations. Focus will be on Airborne Operations (Parachute Infantry Regiment) during World War II. Presented by the 508th Headquarters-HQ Company, this is a living his-

tory event, with a focus on how a headquarters company operates (medical, demolition and communications). Author Steve R. Zaley will also be selling copies of his book They Are Only Gone If They Are Forgotten.

Roberts’ Store was a staple of life for many Community and mill grocery stores were places folks in Kings Mountain shopped prior to bigger chain stores came to town. Even so, many of these stores thrived until the 1980s. The following article, written by Lib Stewart, is reprinted from a June 21, 1979, Kings Mountain Herald. It was 1932 and the heart of the big depression that Gene Roberts joined his father in the operation of the family grocery business on North Piedmont Avenue. That was 47 years ago when Roberts, now 70, was 28. The familiar landmark will bow to changing times and the U.S. 74 Bypass of Kings Mountain. Roberts Grocery delivered the last load of groceries Friday. Mr. Roberts, whose youthly appearance and wit, belie his age, speaks philosophically about leaving the site, only a block from his residence.

“I’ve always believed in accepting things as they are,” he laughed, recalling the good times he had experienced in the white frame store and the “good people” with whom he had been in contact. The price of groceries does not compare, of course, with today’s prices but Roberts recalled how “times were hard” and it was just as difficult to have money in your pocket to buy pinto beans at five cents a pound, eggs at ten cents a dozen, fatback meat at five cents a pound, and gasoline at 17 cents a gallon. Many of his first customers were credit customers who paid for groceries by the week or month. Some of the early purchases included cordwood, which sold for the unbelievable price of $5 per cord, and chickens and turkeys, your choice of live birds or dressed.

we take the high road. because to us, it’s the only road.

the early purchases Included cordwood, which sold for the unbelievable price of $6 per cord, and chickens and turkeys, your choice of live birds or dressed. Ken Roberts, who started working in his father’s store at about the same age that Gene started work in the old Cora Mill store at 14, recalls taking live chickens and turkeys from penned-in “coops’ at the back of the store and dressing them while the customer waited. Ken claims to have started working at age eight or nine, answering the phone for his father and making deliveries on his bicycle. He hopes to repay the favor in mid-July. Gene Roberts will be reporting to work for his son in a brand-new convenience store now under construction across from the KM Depot Center. Bom on First Street in Kings Mountain, Roberts, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Ross Roberts and next to the oldest of four children, has lived only a short distance from his birthplace all his life. Roberts was away from Kings Mountain while attending Mars Hill College and worked in Charlotte for a food chain. The stretch of North Piedmont Avenue which passes his store was a dirt road until 1936 when it was resurfaced by work crews from the Works Progress Administration of the state. Roberts recalled how the workmen used pick and shovel to clean out the ditches and were paid 12.50 per week, not with cash, but with food coupons. They came across the street to his store or went to other stores in the neighborhood to

A FAMILY AFFAIR - Gene Roberts’ son, Kenneth, middle of photo, and his l6-yearold grandson, Craig, followed in his footsteps in the grocery business and like Mr. Roberts started to work at an early age. The senior Roberts reported to work for his son when Ken Roberts opened a new grocery store across from the Depot in 1979. (Photo provided) get their groceries. Roberts recalled that in the early days other grocers were Cora Mill Store, Lum Gantt’s, which is now Pauline Store on Waco Road, B.A. Smith’s where the In and Out Store is now on Cleveland Ave. (now Linwood Mart), and John and Doc Mauney’s store which was located across the street from Smith’s. For six days a week

Gene Roberts opened every morning at 6 a.m. and closed on Fridays and Saturdays as late as midnight, on many occasions. Kenneth recalled that when he went to work full-time 16-years ago many folks preferred to do their shopping on Saturday, which was the only day they came to town. Some customers took their families to the Saturday night movies and shopped for

groceries afterwards. Gene and Louise Hambright Roberts were married April 12,1936. They are parents of five children, Kenneth, of Kings Mountain, David of Gastonia, Diane Roberts (Mrs. Sammy) Houston of Thomasville, Linda (Mrs. Ed) Talion of Columbia, S.C., and Glenn Roberts of Kings Mountain.

seven grandchildren. The Robertses have long been active in Kings Mountain Baptist Church where Mr. Roberts is a deacon and teaches a Sunday School class. Over the years he has seen his business grow from a small beginning with very little stock into an expanded grocery store, both in size and in trade. If he had his life to live over, would he do anything different? Does he have any immediate plans for retirement? No, he enjoys the grocery business, whether its cutting meat, helping a customer, or sweeping the floor. And he likes people, swaps stories with them about the “good ole days,” and never meets & stranger. His sense of humor keeps him young. Mr. Roberts, who walks to and from work every day, expects to get in a little more walking when he moves several blocks down the street to the new location. It will be a brand-new experience because for the first time in 47 years Roberts will be working for someone else. In fact, a new generation of Robertses will be working in the new store. Sixteen- yearold Craig Roberts is following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps.

How to Protect Yourself and Law Enforcement from Fentanyl Exposure Submitted by Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office The abuse of drugs containing fentanyl is killing Americans in records numbers. Fentanyl is a factor in more than half (53%) of all overdose deaths. In the 12 months prior to the pandemic, there were 42,687 overdose deaths involving fentanyl in the United States. Because fentanyl abuse is on the rise, sheriffs and their deputies are increasingly likely to encounter the drug when responding to overdose calls or conducting traffic stops, arrest, and searches. This greatly increases the risk to law enforcement officers of deadly fentanyl exposure With this in mind, the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association is sharing the following information as a public service. Fentanyl is 25% more toxic than heroin and up to 300 times more potent than morphine. Five grams of fentanyl equals one teaspoon, which is enough to kill 2,500 people. In fact, consuming even as small an amount as 0.0001 grams of fentanyl carries a moderate risk of death, while consumption of just 0.0002 grams is certain death. However less likely to

have lethal consequences, the effects of airborne contact and ingesting fentanyl is way more likely to have more serious and lethal consequences to our youth. If you are exposed to fentanyl, move away from the source of exposure, contact 911, and notify first responders on the scene of a possible fentanyl exposure. Do not touch your eyes, mouth, nose, or any skin after touching any potentially contaminated surface. Wash your skin thoroughly with cool water, and soap if available. Do not use hand sanitizers as they may enhance absorption. Contact a poison control center for more guidance. The signs of fentanyl exposure are slow breathing, drowsiness or unresponsiveness, and constricted (or “pinpoint”) pupils Naloxone is an effective medication that rapidly reverses the effects of fentanyl; if unavailable, initiate CPR until first responders arrive Do not forget to always call 911 if you or someone is exposed or may be exposed to any lethal drug. With sheriffs and members of the general public working together, we can all do our part to minimize the risk of exposure to deadly fentanyl.

Senator Burr introduces clean reauthorization of FDA user fee programs O n July 14, Senator R i c h ard Burr (R-NC), Ranking Member of the SENATOR BURR Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP), introduced the Food and Drug Administration Simple Reauthorization Act, legislation that would reauthorize the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) prescription drug, generic drug, biosimilar, and medical device user fee agreements to ensure Americans continue to have access to innovative treatments and therapies. The introduction follows concerns over the Senate’s ability to pass the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Landmark Advancements (FDASLA) Act on time and after anti-innovation policies were attached to the bill in Committee, particularly as Democrats put forward a partisan reconciliation package that includes devastating drug pricing proposals. “For months, the Senate HELP Committee worked diligently to craft a user fee package that not only

addresses some of the most difficult issues facing the FDA, but also strengthens agency accountability for commitments made to innovators and patients,” said Senator Burr. “FDA must be forward-looking if we are going to be ready for the next generation of scientific advancements and biomedical technologies to effectively respond to the next public health threat or devastating disease. “Unfortunately, the user fee package reported out of Committee would, if enacted, undermine the very purpose of the user fee program. The policies added to this bill endanger the development of drugs for rare diseases, imperil intellectual property rights, threaten Americans’ access to breakthrough treatments and cures, and deter private sector innovation. In effect, this proposal would compromise the FDA’s overall ability to keep pace with advancements in the industry it regulates. And Democrats’ recently released drug pricing proposal would further reduce private sector investment, making it more difficult for Americans to access new, lifesaving medicines. “Instead, the legislation See BURR, Page 5B

NC Forest Service offering tree seedlings for sale RALEIGH – The North Carolina Forest Service is now accepting orders in its annual tree seedling sale. With an average annual production of 15 million seedlings, the Nursery and Tree Improvement Program produces enough native and genetically improved tree seedlings to plant around 30,000 acres of land each year. “Healthy trees and forests are as important as ever for North Carolina and a benefit to our environment,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “To have a Nursery and Tree Improvement Program producing quality understory plants and nearly 50 native tree species available to landowners across the state is North Carolina’s good fortune, and I encourage landowners to take advantage of it.” Conifers and hardwoods are sold in units as low as 10 and as high as 100. For those wishing to submit larger orders, the nursery

sells tree seedlings by the hundreds and thousands. Momi fir, Eastern red cedar and Virginia pine are available this year. Genetically improved stock is available in loblolly, longleaf, shortleaf and white pines as well as other species. These seedlings offer better volume growth, form, disease resistance, straightness, and other characteristics needed to produce quality forest

products. See the N.C. Forest Service catalog for a complete species listing. How can you order tree seedlings from the NCFS Nursery and Tree Improvement Program? Tree seedlings can be ordered from the online seedling store at www. buynctrees.com. Tree seedlings can also be ordered by phone at 1-888-NCTREES (1-888-

628-7337). Tree seedlings can be ordered using the order form found in our current catalog. Complete the form and mail to Seedling Coordinator, 762 Claridge Nursery Road, Goldsboro, NC 27530. A user-friendly catalog is available at the “Tree Seedlings & Nursery Program” link located at www. ncforestservice.gov. Catalogs will also be available at local NCFS offices beginning in July. Inside the catalog, landowners can find information about the types of tree species, quantities and cost to order. Each description includes information about ideal planting locations and whether a species is typically used to benefit wildlife, restore habitats or as marketable timber. Accepted methods of payment are check, money order, Mastercard and Visa. Distribution of tree seedlings will occur December through mid-April, depending on weather conditions. See TREE, Page 5B

TO THE EDITOR:

OPINION LETTER TO THE EDITOR Streetscape has been frustrating to many citizens but is on schedule to be finished MAYOR on time! SCOTT NEISLER When the project started, we made everyone aware that it was going to be ugly and not easy as we revealed the timetable. I know seeing a very small crew working looks like it will never get done, but at that point they only needed two people. Otherwise, if you had 10 people down there with only two needed it would cause more criticism. So, let's let the professionals do their job. Nothing for the past 50 years has been done to downtown and the streets and infrastructure haven’t been renovated for 100 years which caused some surprises! The city has committed over a million dollars in that first section to make

the old dark, seemingly unsafe area of Mountain Street welcoming to future shoppers. Historically, June and July are slow months for retail, so it would have been worse to do the construction during peak season. Still, I know businesses are hurting and I understand that, but with the improvements they will have a better chance to do increased business in the future. I believe you will see dramatic improvements very soon! Contractors will correct the lampposts; they will grind down the road, lay curb, and pour sidewalks. You will be very happy with the result. I also wish all of Streetscape would be finished but it’s only a first step, so there will be more ugliness and frustration. Hopefully when you see the first part done it will make it easier to imagine the beauty and function that will help downtown to grow for another 100 years! Mayor Scott Neisler City of Kings Mountain

My name is Jesse Hughes, and I am a rising Junior at Liberty University. After graduating from Kings Mountain High School in 2020, I went to Liberty to pursue a double major in Law and Policy: PreLaw and History, as well as a minor in Theology. While at Liberty, I have gotten heavily plugged into the political scene, becoming a member of on campus organizations such as Students for Life, Young Americans for Freedom, and College Republicans. These organizations have given me countless opportunities and blessings, including the opportunity to volunteer on Virginia Governor Glenn Younkin’s campaign, the chance to do weekly sidewalk counseling and ministry outside of a nearby abortion clinic, and the ability to meet figures such as Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Pro-Life advocate Abby Johnson. These experiences and opportunities have recently culminated in my election as the Chairman of the College Republicans of Liberty University. In addition to these other experiences, I have been blessed this summer to be a part of the Washington Fellowship Program, a Liberty University program designed to send students to Washington, D.C. to participate

in an internship in the city. Through the program, I have been given the opportunity to intern on Capitol Hill with the House Judiciary Committee Republican staff. The House Judiciary Committee is one of the most powerful and influential committees in the U.S. House of Representatives, dealing with issues such as constitutional amendments, immigration law, intellectual property, and the impeachment of public officials. The Judiciary Committee was most recently involved in the impeachment efforts against former president Donald J. Trump. Working on the Judiciary Committee has not only given me opportunities to work on projects dealing with issues under its jurisdiction, but I have also been able to work closely with the Republican members of the Committee, including Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida, and Representative Dan Bishop of the 9th Congressional District of North Carolina. Being in our nation’s capital has given the opportunity to be a witness of history, not only the history of the past through the monuments and museums, but of current events that have yet to be written in the history books. The most recent and impact-

Wednesday, July 20, 2022 ful of these events was the handing down of the decision in the case Dobbs v. Jackson, a landmark case that overturned the case Roe v. Wade and gave individual states the power and discretion over abortion law within their borders. I was beyond blessed with the opportunity to be right outside of the Supreme Court when this happened. On the morning of Friday, June 24th, 2022, I was outside of the Supreme Court, gathering with coworkers from my office, as well as friends and activists from multiple ProLife organizations, including Students for Life America, the Susan B. Anthony List, and others. On decision days, the Court will release decisions on previously heard cases one at a time every ten minutes, starting at 10:00 am. Those familiar with the Court’s proceedings will upload these cases to a website called SCOTUSBlog, which both myself and several others on the ground were using to keep up with what was being released. At approximately 10:10 am, someone shouted out “They just dropped Dobbs!” This caused a hush to fall over the crowd as everyone stopped to see if the leaked draft opinion from May of this year was in fact the Court’s final decision on the

case. After what seemed like an eternity, the silence turned into a roar of celebration from every single Pro-Life advocate, as what we had all been fighting for, many for their entire lives, had come into fruition. The atmosphere was filled with joy and celebration as the people around me burst into tears, hugs, and laughter. I stood silently for several moments taking in what was going on. I have lived 20 years of my life in a nation in which abortion on demand was the law of the land. Now it was finally over. The hopeful chants of “We are the Post-Roe generation” had turned into a reality. I immediately ran over to a group of friends who had graduated from Liberty and worked for the Pro-Life organizations I mentioned. None of us knew what to say, we all just joined in an embrace that, unbeknownst to me at the time, was captured and replayed multiple times on national news all across the nation. I do not have the words to describe what the moment felt like, but I do know it was one of the best moments of my life to be witness to one of the most monumental historical shifts in the history of our nation.

Jesse Hughes interns in Washington, DC

CNBC names NC as America’s top state for business in 2022

Jesse Hughes, a rising Junior at Liberty University, is interning for Jim Jordan with the Judiciary Committee in Washington, D.C. as part of the University’s Washington Fellowship Program, designed to send students to Washington, D.C. After graduating from Kings Mountain High School in 2020, he went to Liberty to pursue a double major in Law & Policy: Pre-Law and History, as well as a minor in Theology. Hughes’ parents are Jeff and Kim Hughes of the Dixon Community.

CNBC named North Carolina as America’s Top State for Business in 2022. This morning, Governor Roy Cooper joined CNBC’s Scott Cohn at the Oceanic at the Crystal Pier in Wrightsville Beach for a live broadcast where the winner was revealed. “North Carolina is the best place in America to do business and the main reason is our people,” Governor Cooper said. “This is a great honor, and we’re going to continue to work with our state legislature, businesses, education leaders and employees to build the talented workforce and resilient infrastructure needed to support the high paying jobs of the next generation.” “North Carolina is proud of its economic success that continues to garner national recognition like being CNBC’s Best State for Business,” said North Carolina Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders. “Last year, we announced more than 24,000 new jobs and investments exceeding $10.1 billion from future-focused companies in fields like biotechnology, computers, and electric vehicles. There are many factors for our success, including our central East Coast location, premier quality of life and low cost of business, but our greatest asset is our diverse and highly skilled workforce that is supported by our top-rated education system. We will continue to focus on creative partnerships for talent development as we evolve to meet the demands of existing, new, and future

employers like Apple, Toyota, and FUJIFILM that call North Carolina home.” “To say North Carolina had a record year in 2021 would be an understatement,” said Gene McLaurin, chair of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina’s (EDPNC) Board of Directors. “Our economic development successes would not have been possible without collaboration between Governor Cooper, the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Department of Commerce, the EDPNC, and other public and private partnerships. Because of that collaboration, we have been able to create an award-winning business climate that the biggest companies in the world want to experience and use for their own successes, as well as for the successes of North Carolinians.” The CNBC study looks at 88 metrics in ten categories of competitiveness. North Carolina ranked highly in the Economy, Access to Capital and Technology and Innovation categories. North Carolina has placed in the top 5 three times since 2017. Since Governor Cooper took office in 2017, North Carolina has announced over 95,000 jobs including announcements from companies like Apple, Vinfast, Toyota, and Centene Corp. This historic recruitment success in both rural and urban parts of North Carolina continues to add value to the manufacturing and clean energy industries already thriving here.

Find other testing locations and ways to receive at home tests at covid19.ncdhhs.gov/ FindTests (Spanish). • Having a plan on how to seek treatment if you test positive. Find out now where treatment options are near you: covid19.ncdhhs.gov/ FindTreatment (Spanish). • Adding a layer of protection by wearing a mask in crowded indoor settings or if you are at high risk for serious COVID-19 complications. • Increasing the ventilation of indoor spaces by opening windows. NCDHHS has made access to at-home tests more convenient by establishing Community Access Points in all counties, where people can pick up free at-home tests. Current information on how and where to find tests, including CAPs, in North Carolina is available at covid19.ncdhhs.gov/FindTests. If you do test positive

for COVID-19, treatment is available, especially for high-risk people who are likely to get very sick. Antiviral pills like Paxlovid and Molnupiravir should be taken within five days of symptoms beginning. The monoclonal antibody bebtelovimab is less effective against this variant, and the supply is limited. These treatments must be prescribed by a medical professional. More information on treatment, including Test to Treat locations, is available on the NCDHHS website. “North Carolinians know how to batten down the hatches and get prepared when hurricanes approach. When COVID-19 case counts are rising, it’s especially important to protect yourself,” said NCDHHS Secretary Kody H. Kinsley. “We know what to do now. It’s time to make sure you are boosted, make sure you have tests on-hand at home and make sure you know where treatment options are near your home.” For more information on COVID-19 trends in the state, visit covid19.ncdhhs. gov/dashboard.

Gov. reminds citizens to prepare for COVID-19 waves More transmissible BA.5 variant leads cases As key COVID-19 metrics increase in North Carolina and the U.S. due to the BA.5 variant, Governor Roy Cooper is reminding North Carolinians to stay prepared by being up to date on vaccines and boosters, having a supply of tests and seeking treatment if they test positive. Consistent with trends seen in data from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, BA.5 is now the most common variant, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has labeled 41 of North Carolina’s counties as high COVID-19 Community levels. This variant is causing repeat infections, even in those who have recent past infections from other variants, and infections in people who are vaccinated. Vaccines remain highly effective in preventing severe outcomes including hospitalization and death from COVID-19. “While Covid variants continue to infect people, we have the tools to protect ourselves from the most serious effects of this virus,” Gov. Cooper said. “Get vaccinated and boosted, wear a mask indoors in crowds if you believe you need better protection and if you become infected, talk with a health professional quickly about effective treatments like Paxlovid. Cases are on the rise with this latest BA.5 variant so I encourage all North Carolinians to know their risk and take steps to protect themselves.” While COVID-19 metrics will continue to rise and fall, it remains important to prepare and protect yourself. Getting vaccinated and boosted — including a second booster if you are eligible — is still the most effective tool to reduce the risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19, as well as long COVID. Get prepared by: • Getting your booster (Spanish) if you haven’t yet and by getting your second booster if you’re eligible. • Having a supply of athome tests on hand. Stop the

Mudpuppy and Hellbender sightings requested As opening day of hatchery supported Trout waters approached, wildlife biologists at the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission asked the public, particularly anglers, to report sightings of mudpuppies and hellbenders to the agency. Both species of aquatic salamanders are found in western North Carolina. These two giant salamanders often get confused with one another, but they have distinct differences. The mudpuppy has light brown, smooth skin that is typically speckled with spots, and red external feathery gills it retains through its whole life. It is smaller than the hellbender, averaging around 10 inches in length as an adult. It primarily lives in deep rivers, lakes, large ponds and reservoirs, but also thrives in unpolluted streams like the hellbender. The hellbender, also called a “water dog,” “snot otter,” or “Alleghany alligator,” is the largest aquatic salamander in

North America, averaging 16 to 17 inches long. It has a flat, broad head and flattened body, wrinkly skin on its sides and is brown – sometimes mottled with dark splotches. It is typically only found in fast moving, clean mountain streams. Both species are listed as species of special concern in North Carolina, and Wildlife Commission biologists want to know more about their distribution in the state and how their populations are faring. “We know less about mudpuppies than we do about hellbenders, but we’d like to know much more about both,” said Lori Williams, a wildlife diversity biologist with the Wildlife Commission. “Challenging logistics in lake systems have made it difficult for us to conduct mudpuppy population surveys, but those habitats may be hot spots. Mudpuppies are attracted to baited hooks in lakes and deep rivers, so anglers fishing from boats may catch

one. We need anyone who fishes deep river sites and impounded waters to let us know if they find one.” Hellbenders, on the other hand, have been the focus of a long-term inventory and monitoring study the agency has been conducting with partners since 2007. Their populations have decreased due to declining water quality and habitat degradation, and to a lesser degree, ill treatment from anglers who mistakenly think they decrease trout populations. The latter is not true; however, both hellbenders and mudpuppies may go after fish on a line or stringer when scavenging for an easy meal. Their main source of prey is crayfish, but they will also eat minnows, snails, tadpoles, worms, discarded bait or other injured or dead animals. Game fish, like trout and bass, will eat young or larval mudpuppies and hellbenders. Neither the mudpuppy nor the hellbender is poi-

sonous, venomous, toxic or harmful to humans, although they may try to bite as a defensive reaction if someone tries to pick them up. If sighted, they should be left alone and reported. Williams asks that their location be noted (physical location or GPS coordinates), a photo snapped if possible, and any other details shared with her at Lori.Williams@ncwildlife.org. People can also call the Wildlife Commission’s NC Wildlife Helpline, 866-318-2401, and provide details of the observation. It is illegal to take, possess, transport, or sell mudpuppies or hellbenders, or attempt to do so. The violation is a Class 1 misdemeanor, which can result in a fine and up to 120 days in jail. If anglers happen to catch one on by hook and line, they should carefully remove the hook if it is safe to do so without harming the animal or cut the line as close as possible to the hook and return the salamander back to the water.

Phishing emails may target shoppers with post-Prime Day offers Prime Day may be over, but scammers probably aren't calling it quits yet, according to a BBB Scam Alert. Con artists have been known to send phony emails and texts that look like messages from major retailers, instructing you to redeem the reward points accrued during your shopping days. Just hit delete on these phishing messages. How the scam works: You receive an unsolicited email or text message that appears to be from a major retailer. (BBB has seen scammers use the names of Amazon, Kohls and Costeo ... but any company can be spoofed.) The subject line reads something like, "You Have a New Reward to Claim!" You open the message, and it looks real. There's the company logo, colors, and a link to claim the reward points or gift from your recent holiday shopping. As curious as you may be, don't fall for it. Scammers hide malware in these email links or attachments. When you click, they can gain access

to your computer and steal your sensitive personal information. BBB has also seen these phishing scams pop up during the winter holidays and other major shopping events. Avoid falling for email phishing scams: • Never click on links or download attachments from unknown emails. Out-of-theblue emails are often an attempt to download malware to your computer and steal your personal information. • Don't take unsolicited emails at face value. Scammers often send out mass emails that contain little or no personal information. Be wary if the email doesn't mention you or include any personal information. • Hover on links to see their destination. Before clicking, place your mouse over links to discover their true destination. • Go to the source. Whenever possible, use the customer service information provided when you made your purchase, rather than searching online.

BURR From Page 1 I’ve introduced today preserves the user fee agreements as they’ve already been negotiated – without harmful additions. It keeps FDA’s critical operations running, protects existing scientific experts and ongoing hiring activities at the agency, and ensures the agency can continue to

review new medical products, while encouraging private sector investment in the next generation of developments. It’s essential that Congress support an agreement that holds the FDA accountable to its performance commitments and brings lifesaving, innovative products to Americans for years to come. As the authorizing deadline approaches, this clean reauthorization represents the clearest path forward.”

therapy for Late-Stage Prostate Cancer

ANSWER KEY

Atrium Health's Levine Cancer Institute now offers a new, targeted radiopharmaceutical called Pluvicto to treat late-stage prostate cancer. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved Pluvicto for patients with prostate cancer who completed hormone therapy and chemotherapy, but whose cancer continues to progress. While not a cure for prostate cancer, this medication has been shown to improve the quality and length of life of many trial participants. "We’re talking about patients who, on average, had one to two years of life left," said Dr. Derek McHaffie, a radiation oncologist and the director of brachytherapy services at Atrium Health’s Levine Cancer Institute. 'With this treatment, we saw a delayed disease progression, which extended the average expected survival by about four months. It is an impressive result for a treatment that's been tested after other therapies have been exhausted. We think the majority of patients who are candidates for this treatment will benefit.” Pluvicto is administered intravenously and works by

binding to cancer cell receptors to slow tumor growth. The treatment involves a quick infusion every six weeks. If there is evidence of benefit to the patient, the treatment can continue for up tc six doses. Like all cancer treatments, this therapy carries the risk of side effects, including dry mouth, nausea, loss of appetite and low red blood cell counts. All patients are closely monitored through regular lab work. Treatment can be adjusted as needed. Several years ago, Levine Cancer Institute began offering another targeted radiopharmaceutical, called Lutathera, to treat neuroendocrine tumors. The results from this treatment are what encouraged the further testing and development of other radiopharmaceuticals. "Our experience with Lutathera was proof that this type of treatment could work, and it created a lot of promise for the future of radiopharmaceuticals," said McHaffie. Delivering and overseeing radiopharmaceuticals like Pluvicto and Lutathera requires a complex, team approach and dedicated infrastructure. This means that even though the medications

are FDA approved, they are not available at all cancer centers. "Delivering radiopharmaceutical therapies to patients requires the right facilities to ensure a safe, non-contaminated delivery," said McHaffie. "At Levine Cancer Institute, we have the physical foundation, along with the expertise and talent of our multidisciplinary team, to offer this drug today and into the future.” Currently, Pluvicto is administered to patients inside the radiation oncology suite at Levine Cancer Institute, but there will be a dedicated space located within the new radiation therapy facility set to open in 2023. Levine Cancer Institute offers many treatment options for patients with prostate cancer including active surveillance, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, radiation therapy and robotic prostatectomy. More information about these treatments, as well as clinical trials and survivorship programs designed to help patients stay well during and after treatment, is available at www.atriumhealth.org/levinecancerinstitute.

How to Find and Claim Your Family’s Forgotten Assets Dear Savvy Senior, A while back I read an article about some online tools that can help people search for lost or forgotten money left behind by their deceased relatives, but I’ve misplaced it. Can you help me with this? My mom, who passed away in January, was always bad about keeping up with her money, so I’m wondering if there was anything she left behind. Searching Son Dear Searching, Forgotten or lost money is actually very common in the United States. According to the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators, there are literally billions of dollars in unclaimed funds sitting in state treasuries and other agencies just waiting to be found. These unclaimed funds are from accounts that are inactive or whose owners, or their heirs, cannot be located. Unclaimed funds can include things like lost or forgotten saving or checking accounts, stocks, utility security deposits, tax refunds, life insurance policy proceeds, uncashed dividend checks, matured savings

bonds and much more. This typically happens because of a change of address (the owner moved), a name change (the owner got married or divorced), or the owner dies, and the estate was unaware of the money or the heirs could not be located. By law, companies and financial institutions that can’t find the owner or their next of kin within two to five years must turn the property over to the state where it’s held indefinitely. Where to Search About 10 percent of all Americans have some unclaimed money out there waiting to be found, so it’s very possible your mother had some too. To start your search, go to Unclaimed.org, which has links to all state programs that will let you do a state benefits search online for free. Or you can do a multi-state search in 39 states at MissingMoney.com. Be sure to check every state in which your mother lived, worked or did business. Also, make sure to check under your mom’s maiden name, and if she had a frequently misspelled

name, search those misspellings too. Using her first initial and her last name is also encouraged to make sure everything comes up. Every state can tell you immediately if your mom has some unclaimed money, as well as how to go about collecting it. Look Here Too In addition to state treasuries, here are some other resources that can help you look for unclaimed money that may have been overlooked. Forgotten retirement benefits: To search for lost or forgotten 401(k) funds your mom may have left behind with an old employer, use the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits at UnclaimedRetirementBenefits.com. Or to search for lost pension benefits, use the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation trusteed plan search tool at PBGC. gov/search-trusteed-plans. Lost life insurance: To track down a lost or forgotten life insurance policy, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, an insurance regu-

latory support organization, offers a free policy locator service at https:// eapps.naic.org/life-policy-locator. Unredeemed savings bonds: It’s very common for people to lose track of U.S. saving bonds because they are often given to children as gifts, then forgotten before the bonds reach maturity. To find out if your mom had any, the U.S. Department of the Treasury provides an online search tool at TreasuryHunt.gov for finding matured, uncashed savings bonds over 30 years old and no longer earning interest. Federal tax refunds: Each year thousands of refund checks totaling millions of dollars are returned to the IRS by the post office. To look for lost Federal tax refund checks go to IRS.gov/refunds or call 800-8291954. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org.
