tional Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas and select areas celebrate on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.

Frustration builds with KM city government over downtown issues By Loretta Cozart Kings Mountain’s downtown Streetscape kicked-off in April and has sparked heated conversations, both about the project and how the city’s politicians and administration are addressing the hardships this necessary infrastructure project is causing downtown business owners. Since July 14, a new Facebook page, “Is Mountain Street Open Yet,” has caused a flurry of online discussions, and the page owner promises to keep readers updated on the progress of reopening the street. In the last week, several posts challenge the city administration, city council and the mayor regarding policies that impact development throughout the community. On July 20, Bobby Maner, business owner and Kings Mountain resident, asked readers in a post to “Put yourself in the role of a developer, investor, etc., looking for new towns and cities to do projects and you start looking around for someplace new in the Charlotte area. And you see Kings Mountain... ideal location: close to Charlotte, good schools, major highways running through it, railroad, water resources.... (it) looks very promising and ripe for growth. And

making some money.” He continued, “But then you start to observe the small stuff and do research and you find patterns evidenced by recent and ongoing issues.” He points out issues with Streetscape, city management, downtown exterior appearance and paint committee, ownership of a decorative wall on W. Mountain Street, potholes and patches, Zoning/Planning/Codes/UDO, approval of more rent assisted apartments, among others. Maner continues his post and urges city council to “do what they were elected to do.... assert their chartered powers and do their job ...making policy. And hire a competent, experienced city manager to implement it and then hold them accountable. And if it takes making painful changes, so be it.” “We’re at a crossroads,” he wrote. “And the problems above are nothing new. It’s time that our city government gets its act together and put us in a position for meaningful growth without all the nonsensical drama.” David Stone, Kings Mountain resident, property owner, business owner, and chair of Historic Shelby Association, added to the online conversation. He owns a building on W. Mountain Street

Leslie Plonk, owner of Carolina Cotton Company, requested to paint the front of her building. That request was denied. See photos of Streetscape on page 3B. Photo by Loretta Cozart downtown. Last October, Stone came to city council requesting they consider a public / private partnership to revitalize downtown Kings Mountain. In a phone call with the Herald, Stone said he has yet to get a response from the city regarding his proposal. “I requested that

Gaston County’s seventh rabies case On Friday, July 22, at 11:42 a.m., Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement was notified of a positive rabies specimen that was sent to the North Carolina State Lab by Carolina Wildlife, an area wildlife rehabilitator. On Wednesday, July 20, at 7:30 a.m., a raccoon, appearing to be sick, was located by a resident in the 1000 block of Brookwood Drive, Stanley, NC. The resident captured the raccoon and transported it to Carolina Wildlife Conservation Center the same day. After examining the animal, Carolina Wildlife determined that the raccoon needed to be euthanized and tested for rabies. Carolina Wildlife sent a rabies specimen to the North Carolina State Lab on Thursday, July 21. The raccoon tested positive for rabies. Animal Care and Enforcement completed a neighborhood canvas in the 1000 block of Brookwood Drive, Stanley, 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. Furthermore, it is important to never handle or transport sick wildlife. The animal could have rabies. Gaston County residents should contact Gaston County Police Animal Care and Enforcement to capture and transport sick wildlife. This represents the seventh confirmed rabies case in Gaston County this year. No further information is currently available.

O n Sunday May 15, around 2 a.m., Lowell Police, Gaston County Police, and several other agencies responded to a shooting call at the ICONZ Bar on Westover Street in Lowell.

Several parked cars and surrounding buildings were damaged during the shooting. Approximately 50 spent bullet casings were recovered from the scene of the shooting.

Through the investigative process, the Lowell Police, Gaston County Police, and North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement were able to identify several individuals involved in the incident. As a result of the investigation, ICONZ Bar has been closed. On Thursday, July 21, Gaston County Police and Lowell Police officers served two search warrants as well as arrest warrants.

ment, Demetrius Damar Anderson, and Reginald Duncan “Dunk” Anderson of Lincolnton, were both charged and arrested in connection with the ICONZ shooting. The Lowell Police Department and Gaston County Police Department are currently looking for Lexus Monea Alexander of Gastonia in connection to the ICONZ shooting.

Governor encourages residents to stay prepared for COVID As key COVID-19 metrics increase in North Carolina and the U.S. due to the BA.5 variant, Gov. 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. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has labeled 41 of North Carolina’s counties as having high risk of COVID-19

illness and strain on the health care system. This variant is causing repeat infections, even in those who have recent past infections from other variants, and infections in people who are vaccinated.

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 for COVID-19 waves by: • Staying up-to-date on vaccines and boosters. • Having a supply of athome tests on hand. Stop the spread by testing more often and taking precau-

tions if you are positive. Find testing locations and ways to receive free, athome tests at: • Having a plan on how to seek treatment if you test See COVID, Page 7A

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. –Abraham Lincoln

Pieces of Kings Mountain History

Once again, Hayne Neisler has shared a story he LORETTA discovered COZART from the New York Times dated Jan.11, 1947 involving a Kings Mountain resident, dairyman Holland Dixon and George Weber, a Neisler Mills Sales Office Manager in New York City. Obviously, Dixon was a smart man, and Weber handled the matter with grace and humor. ‘’Kings Mountain-- If this was a short story it might well be titled ‘The

Captivating Calf’ or ‘How a Country Boy outwitted the City Slicker.’ In this instance Holland Dixon of Kings Mountain, who is manager of Archdale Dairy farm south of Kings Mountain, and his victim is George Weber, wellknown in Kings Mountain and manager of the Neisler Mills sales office in New York City. The story began at the Neisler deer hunt in Bladen County, North Carolina. On the morning after a previous night’s poker game, Mr. Weber accused Mr. Dixon of losing the big pot and reminded him that he had promised to send a regis-

tered Guernsey calf to Mr. Weber to pay off his bet. Now, Mr. Dixon was reasonably sure he’d made no promise along this line, but decided it was safer to send Mr. Weber the calf.” “Mr. Dixon sent the calf via railway express (prepaid), a fine heifer moved forward to the big metropolis. When the prize Southern package reached its destination, it caused as much excitement at Grand Central station as VE Day in 1945 at Times Square.” “In almost nothing flat, Mr. Weber was sorry he insisted on the gift, and

Looking Back

By Loretta Cozart In September 1952, Archdale Dairy announced it would cease retail and wholesale milk distribution locally. For twenty years, the dairy had served the dairy needs of the local community. The farm was owned by Neisler Mills. An article in the Herald announced the news, “Archdale Farms, Kings Mountain dairy, will erase the sale of milk after Monday’s deliveries, according to announcement this week. On Tuesday, Carolina Dairy, Inc., of Shelby, will assume the former wholesale and retail deliveries of Archdale Farms. On Thursday. September 18. Archdale will sell at auction the major portion of its purebred Guernsey herd. In the announcement this week, Archdale pointed out that it was disposing of its herd and therefore would discontinue the distribution of milk in Kings Mountain and Grover. Another reason given, for the discontinuance was the recent resignation H.P. Dixon, manager of the farm for the past 20 years, to enter business in Shelby. The farm is now under the management of the Ben Jenkins Management Service. Archdale pointed out that Carolina Dairy, of Shelby, will be in a position to supply present Archdale customers with the “same high-quality Guernsey” milk which the Kings Mountain dairy had produced. In making the announcement, Archdale Farms stated appreciation for the support of its patrons during the past two decades.

in a few more seconds he had placed a long-distance call to Mr. Dixon, asking permission to return the heifer.” ‘’’I am no Indian giver,’ Mr. Dixon replied, and Mr. Weber was stuck. But Mr. Weber tells a better story of his trials and tribulations in a dubious thank you letter to Mr. Dixon. ‘... my wife thought the backyard was too cold for the calf, so it was placed in the garage. Kids for miles around came to try to feed the calf. They tried to feed it grass, Gerber’s baby food, spinach and carrots and the calf only bawled

louder. I called a friend of mine who raises Guernsey’s. He said, with a grin, that nothing but Golden Guernsey milk would do. Counting the taxi fare to get the milk the calf enjoyed, it cost over two dollars a quart. But we did manage to feed it and the calf quit bawling.’” “’Finally, I worked out a deal with Corner Brook farms. They are going to raise it and I’m going to get half the milk. The calf will be called Dixie Archdale Weber. My hair has turned gray, my wife isn’t speaking to me, but the kids think it is wonderful.’’ At any rate,

Mr. Weber has learned his lesson. ‘I’m a game guy but I know when I am beat. My chief New Year’s resolution is to never, ever play poker again.’’’ There are two lessons to be learned from this story. First, Weber learned to be careful what he asks for, because he might get more than he bargained for in the process. Second, Dixon learned that Weber, the city slicker, had a good sense of humor and managed to negotiate a positive resolution. No surprise. Weber was a salesperson after all.

Airline travel woes, flying is frustrating Airline travelers have experienced frustration since the Glenn Mollette Guest Editorial 2021 holidays as covered by national news. Travel delays and even trip cancellations have been aggravating experiences for travelers. If you only have a weekend and your trip includes a flight on Friday and a return flight on Sunday you are chancing a lost weekend. Being delayed from Friday to Saturday is sure to sour your trip. My wife and I have flown a few times and it seems as if there is a new devil at every level. Last Spring, we hoped for a few days in Florida. We booked our flight from Indiana to change planes in Atlanta before going on to Florida. We checked our luggage and had minimum provisions in our backpacks. We arrived in Atlanta on a Saturday afternoon only to learn that our plane on to Florida was cancelled because of weather. We also heard from fellow disgruntled travelers and a TSA agent that the cancellation was really due to problems with air traffic controllers. We also heard that Delta was very short-staffed. After standing in line at a ticket counter for two hours I was told

the next available flight was two nights later at 7 p.m. We were advised that our luggage was already on another plane to our destination. We had no choice but to find a hotel room. Thousands of other flights were delayed or had been cancelled that day. Hotel rooms were not easy to find. We finally found one. We were forced to get a taxi and stay two nights in Atlanta with minimal provisions. Needless to say, it was an extra unplanned expense. When we finally arrived in Florida, I knew we were good on transportation. I had paid in advance for a rental car. We got the car pretty fast. However, I wasn’t told that our upfront payment was forfeited because we didn’t pick up the car within a 24-hour time frame of the reservation date. I didn’t realize I was paying a second time until I reviewed my bank statement later. Since I had paid for the car up front, I did not think that Budget would care if we were delayed. I thought wrong. According to Budget you have to let them know within 24 hours if your plans change. I learned something new. Education is always expensive. I disputed the charge but my bank stood with Budget. All in all, my wife and I had a good time



“Creating Business For People” ®

in Ft. Myer’s Beach, Florida. Except, flying was miserable that time around. Delta Airlines made no offers to compensate us with any new or free tickets. They felt no obligation to cover any of the additional expenses we incurred in Atlanta. Budget Rent A Car made double money for an old Camry they rented me. The car was a take it or leave it. They said it was all they had available when I arrived. Are there any answers? Sure. Stay home. Or, try to find flights that are direct if possible. This seems harder and harder. Buy a small suitcase that fits the legal carry-on dimensions. Then you will have your bag with you. If you can handle your trip without a rental car, you might be happier. Sometimes this is impossible but not always. We recently traveled to Baltimore and stuck with taxis. We saved quite a bit because we didn’t pay for a rental car and we didn’t have to pay parking fees at the hotel. I don’t like to fly in storms. I do want the airlines to make my safety a priority. I would rather arrive late than never. Just be aware that in the age we currently live in flying can be frustrating.

LETTER TO EDITOR LETTER TO THE EDITOR The lack of concern that the City of Kings Mountain leaders has shown business owners experiencing difficulty while Streetscape construction happens on West Mountain Street has been astounding. I am prompted to write this as a response to the opinion of the mayor in the recent Kings Mountain Herald. I have owned and operated UnCommon Artisans for two years. The store was opened during the height of the pandemic – and from day one we have been able to pay our bills due to the support of the Kings Mountain community. We have become a part of this community. We’ve worked hard at UnCommon Artisans to promote the West Mountain Street business community and the entire downtown area. Our crowd-pleasing artisan outdoor market, the Illuminated Market, brought residents into an area of downtown they didn’t realize was here! We’ve included all the businesses in holiday flyers. UnCommon Artisans designed and printed in house a very popular downtown walking map that is available to all businesses free of charge to give to customers and clients. The local business ads on the back were printed at no charge to the businesses. We created a hugely successful program to help feed the local homeless; and welcome all four leggeds to our store for fresh water, treats, and a cool down (or warm up) while they walk with their owners. All this effort to promote the small town that has so kindly supported us! We will continue to do each of these projects listed because

it is our passion – although not one of the city leaders has acknowledged in any way our contributions to the downtown area. My issue is not with the Streetscape project. It is the appalling lack of concern that City Hall has shown when businesses began reaching out to city leaders about the lack of progress or communication. It is the obvious lack of city leaders having “skin in the game”; the financial losses our small, family-owned businesses have experienced during this time do not appear to be in any way affecting city leaders – they apparently don’t care when it doesn’t affect them personally. Unless leadership is called out on social media. And only then their reaction is to CYA – not actually listen to the businesses. To date, I have had three visits from three different city leaders in the 12 weeks my business has been affected by the project. Three. Each has given me a different version of the phrase “I’ll see what we can do”. None have actually gone back to city hall and done so. The focus of our leaders appears to be making this project happen regardless of the cost to the small businesses. Yes, they can point to it during reelection time “Look What I Did”! - without a peep about why so many buildings are empty on that pretty, pretty street. We on West Mountain Street knew Streetscape was coming. Many of the business owners such as myself put aside funds to lean on during this time. We’ve all experienced loss – and are now struggling to pay bills with a small percentage what we historically made in past slower months. There is well over $100,000

The Kings Mountain Herald | in Main Street Program taxpayer monies somewhere at city hall. Since the Kings Mountain Main Street Program is no longer operating, I have suggested the Kings Mountain leadership form a grant program patterned on Uptown Shelby’s, using this money. Uptown Shelby had a streetscape project that has revitalized the downtown area. While their businesses were affected by construction, the grant program was utilized to help defray losses. It is a commonsense solution that if the mayor, city managers, and city council really cared to do, can be done. Already, businesses slated for future streetscape projects are planning for the future. Some very popular businesses are considering leaving downtown, knowing they can’t operate with the kind of losses we’ve experienced on West Mountain Street. With so many local towns being much more business friendly, I cannot blame them. York, Hickory, Forest City, Morganton, Shelby – as I reach out to businesses in those cities and observe the success of those small downtowns, I yearn for the kind of active, engaged leadership that each has provided to the small businesses and citizens. I spent an afternoon in one of those small downtowns recently, speaking with business owners and real estate professionals. It was a breath of fresh air! Each person took ownership of their small part in making the downtown area a better place to shop, dine and enjoy. Took time out of their busy afternoons to communicate excitement in being part of something bigger than each alone. From the owners to the clerks to city hall, it appeared that all of those folks were on the same team being led towards a common goal.

Why can’t Kings Mountain have that? Our mayor has written twice “let the professionals do their jobs”. I’ve yet to see the professionals. The professionals that taxpayers pay to do the job of leading and running a city. Leadership that engages the citizens and businesses, not just at city council meetings, but in everyday life. Inclusive leadership that has the education and background to be able to find new solutions to new problems. One of the business owners on West Mountain Street recently made the observation that if each of the people in leadership positions at our city hall – city council, mayor, and managers - came around and shook hands with us once a week, just checking in, it would go a long way towards building good relationships. A simple action, yes, symbolizing respect and acknowledgment. It doesn’t pay the bills but would be the beginning of true leadership. There needs to be a better plan moving forward for future streetscape projects. The next phase isolates another popular retail store completely from customer parking and walking. That store stands to lose two months of sales. After that, Battleground and Railroad stores and restaurants. A Main Street funded grant would be a partial solution to help these businesses weather the losses. Can our leaders make that happen? I would challenge them to do so. Come visit my store, I’ll buy you a cup of coffee and have a friendly chat about it. Can’t get here due to the dirt, mud, and uneven ground? Hmmm. I want each leader in Kings Mountain City Hall to ponder that for a good while. Cobb Lahti Owner UnCommon Artisans 124 West Mountain Street Kings Mountain, NC

N. Piedmont Avenue property lists for $1.6M By Loretta Cozart Property located at 605 N. Piedmont Avenue has listed for $1.6 million. The property is at the corner of N. Piedmont Avenue and Walker Street, extending to the exit ramp from Kings Mountain 74 Bypass going east. The property comprises 4.8 acres. This section of Piedmont Avenue and the property is just south of the bypass. The land is currently owned by Glenn Carroll and includes 6 lots and five homes. One of the homes was once owned by Dr. Padgett and another once owned by Ms. Gussie Huffstetler. Two lots, one at the corner of N. Piedmont and Walker Street, along with the home at 110 Walker Street, are zoned Auto-Urban Commercial and together comprise 1.97 acres. The remining four lots, of 2.64 acres, are zoned Semi-Urban Residential. All nearby properties are residential, except for First Wesleyan Church across the street.

Their lack of response is a clear indication that they intend to do nothing.” A good example of a challenge business owners face is the case of Leslie Plonk, owner of Carolina Cotton Company at 227 S Battleground Avenue. She requested permission to paint the front of her building and her request was denied. The façade is a stamped concrete. It is not original to the structure and was installed in the 1950s. It looks like brick, but it is not. For now, she cannot paint and continues to work with the city toward a viable solution. In the last five years, several buildings have been painted downtown: 133 West Mountain Street, 201 S. Battleground, 205 S. Battleground Avenue, 233 S. Battleground Avenue, and a mural on the side of and guitar. Scott Moon supplies drums and vocals, Jimmy Ennis adds bass and vocals and John White plays guitar. Tangerine Trees evolved from an original band called String Theory, whose members noted a great interest in the Beatles tunes they performed. After a few special Beatles shows each year, they morphed into Tangerine Trees and have enjoyed bookings at many festivals and concerts around the Carolinas. The group covers many of the Beatles’ well-known songs and some obscure ones. No wigs for this group; just attention to detail in reproducing masterpiece music.

Some owners received permission to paint their buildings, while and others chose to paint without permission. Adding to the confusion, the city allowed a mural to be painted on the side of the Joy Performance Theater in August 2021, while there was an ordinance in place preventing anyone from painting brick downtown. Business owners find instances like this only add to the confusion, especially when their projects are denied so quickly, and other projects are allowed to move forward. Why is one project approved, and another is not?

We say to the Lord, The Gift of Grace (4th & Final Part of the “Freedom” series)

Why is it hard to relinquish that control? I believe it’s because we love to appear strong and invincible. Control makes us feel powerful. I don’t know anyone who wants to feel weak and vulnerable. I actually have a friend who is terrified to let anyone ever see her cry. The truth is we all have weaknesses: we experience pain, disappointment, fear, and anger. At times, we just don’t know what to do - and it can feel stressful and overwhelming! Fortunately, God knows that we have struggles and He offers something better than

the need for control. He provides GRACE! In 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NLT), Apostle Paul (who had many difficult trials) states: “Each time he (Jesus) said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.“ God is Trustworthy Our Heavenly Father promises to never abandon us and to always help us. I have found that there is more freedom in trusting him than trying to control what I can’t control. Jere-

Please observe any COVID-19 precautions you feel are necessary: distancing or masks. The following information regarding the Old Furnace was taken from history regarding the founding of Bessemer City, NC. “In the year 1754, King George II of England granted land to James Ormand. That land was lo-

Picture taken at the home of Giles Cass Ormand. Photo provided cated in what then was known as Tryon County, Carolina. Mr. Ormand established the Ormand Mining Company, and that company helped in the establishment of Bessemer City.”

“The Old Ormand Furnace is the oldest stack of its kind in America. This is where they processed some of the iron ore that was mined in this area. It has an elusive history, but one story is that it was built to

make cannon balls for use in the Revolutionary War.” “Tryon County was split in 1846, and part of it became Gaston County. In 1893 Bessemer City was chartered as a city in Gaston County. The Old

Ormand Furnace still exists but is used as a picnic ground and gathering place for the Ormand Family Reunion, one of the oldest family reunions in America, it has been held annually ever since 1897.”

Andrew Fann KM’s new men’s basketball coach

Coach Fann calling the plays from the sidelines at East Lincoln.

Andrew Fann, a former assistant at Mallard Creek and East Lincoln high schools, has been named head men’s basketball coach at Kings Mountain High School. He will officially begin his duties next week as this week is a dead period for NCHSAA basketball. A standout basketball player at South Caldwell High School, which produced major league pitcher Madison Bumgardner, he has been involved in high school coaching since his graduation from UNC Charlotte in 2015. He was at

4A Mallard Creek in Charlotte for three years and the last four years has been the head JV and assistant varsity coach at East Lincoln and both of those schools turned out exceptional seasons during his time. “We had some really good kids at both of those schools,” he said. “They had good basketball teams just like Kings Mountain does. We played a lot of Big South teams at both schools and I saw Kings Mountain play many times so I am familiar with what Kings Mountain East Lincoln assistant Andrew Fann is does.” Kings Mountain High’s new men’s basSee FANN, Page 2B ketball coach.

Official Mountaineer football practice begins Monday Kings Mountain High’s football teams will begin official preseason practice Monday. Veteran head coach Greg Lloyd said the Mountaineer coaching staff has been working with 90 JV and varsity hopefuls and they are looking for a good year. “We’re really looking forward to this season,” he noted. “Early practice is going very well. We have a big turnout and our numbers are back up. We’re getting really strong. The players are working hard in the weight room. We have a lot of starters back and we’re optimistic about the season.” Many of those returners are risings juniors and seniors that got plenty of playing time last year and helped lead the Mountaineers to a 10-3 season.

GREG LLOYD “We’re optimistic about this season,” Lloyd said. “We lost some very good players like Peyton Fisher, Tykel Smith, Seth Neal and D’Andre Hoyle but we have 17 back that started some. We have kickers Jaden Ellis

and Max Thompson back and they look very solid.” Quarterback Lamont Littlejohn Jr. is returning for his senior year. He and the other younger player gained a lot of valuable experience last year when they were part of one of Coach Lloyd’s youngest teams ever but finished second in the Big South Conference, going 10-3 overall and three rounds in the state tournament. “Lamont is doing a good job,” Lloyd noted. “We have the deepest running back corps we’ve had in years in Casey Holland, Thomas Feemster, Robert Kendrick, Micah Ward and others. We have good receivers back in Zavion Smith, Bryson Brown, Qua Sanders, Jake Lloyd and others.” The Mountaineers return three starters on the offen-

tral School. On August 10 the Mountaineers will travel to Polk County for a scrimmage and will then host the annual Cleveland County Jamboree. Kings Mountain will play Monroe in the final game at 9 p.m. The Mountaineers welcome three new coaches to the staff this season, including a former Mountaineer player and two former coaches. Wilder Clark, the player, is coming from Kings Mountain Middle School where he was an assistant for several seasons and the former coaches are Mark Latham and Rick Fortner. Latham will work with wide receivers and Fortner with quarterbacks. Kings Mountain opens its regular season on Friday, Aug. 19 at Shelby and will

sive line, including Isaiah Eskridge, Michel Lubas and Alex Jackson. The defense returns a lot of starters, also. “This is probably the most people coming back that we’ve had since I’ve been here,” Lloyd noted. “I really like this team. They are working really hard.” After several days of practice the Mountaineers will test the waters in some scrimmages and they will also have their annual Black and Gold game August 8 at Shu Carlton Stadium. The KMHS varsity and JVs as well as the Kings Mountain Optimist and KM Elite will be involved in the event. The high school teams will bus from KMHS to Central School and walk to the stadium just like the “great teams of old” did when KMHS was housed in Cen-

FANN From Page 1B



Aiming Outdoorsmen Toward Christ In my area there are a few small streams which feed into the rivers. When I say small, I mean only about ten to fifteen yards wide. Several times each spring our wildlife agency releases trout into these shallow streams to offer more opportunities to catch fish. There have been several times I have went on an early morning turkey hunt, then afterwards go home and grab my spinning reel and head back to one of these creeks for a couple of hours of trout fishing. It really is a fun way to spend a morning. I can remember the first time I took my son and introduced him to this new type of fishing. He was an older teenager and I could tell he was a little skeptical when I pulled up to the little creek that seemed too shallow to hold any fish of con-

sequence. I knew what he was thinking because I too had shared this sentiment. It really does look like if there were any fish in this creek you would quickly be able to see them. After convincing him the fish were there, we proceeded to wet a line. It didn’t take long for him to understand that what looked to be too small, too shallow, unproductive, void, and barren could actually hold great potential. What he needs to learn is that life is exactly the same way. I’m glad he decided to fish that day instead of allowing what he saw to determine what he did. Let me write that again so you will get it. I’m glad he didn’t allow what he saw to determine what he did. If he had, he would’ve missed a good time and a great harvest. See OUTDOOR, Page 3B

In addition, Fann said over the past four years he has seen Kings Mountain in summer league games “eight or nine times.” From what he’s learned so far, he said the Mountaineers will be very young but there are some good guys returning and some good ones coming up from the middle school, including one with good size. “They should put us in positon to be successful, and living in Mt. Holly I’ve seen a lot of their games against Gaston County Schools. “I’m very excited to be the new coach,” he added. “I’m planning on being in Kings Mountain this week to get some things finalized. Next week is a dead period but I want to meet the players soon. After the dead period we’ll get rolling. I know the Big South Conference is good and we’ll be playing some

very good non-conference teams. I’ve seen film and have scouted games when I’ve seen teams like Crest, South Point, Cramer and Huss. I hope to meet with Cocah (Grayson) Pierce this week and get some in-depth information on them. “I want Kings Mountain to know that I am blessed and honored to be their new head coach. I look forward to being involved with the community and to continue the success of the program and even elevate it. When people come to the gym I want them to be excited about the product.” Kings Mountain athletic director Matt Bridges is very pleased to have Fann on board. “He is going to be a great fit,” Bridges said. “He is very well respected in the basketball community. He is coming here from a great basketball program with a lot of knowledge and great character.”

Scenes from Streetscape By Loretta Cozart These photos were taken July 23 from the intersection of West Mountain Street and Cherokee Street. The city has committed to get the project done by July 30, this coming Saturday. A lot of work must be finished in five short days to meet the city’s deadline, curb and gutter, sidewalks, and repaving. Sources from the area of

construction report that approximately 20 workers are on site each day and work has progressed well in the last two weeks. During the June city council meeting, Assistant City Manager Nick Hendricks reported that Streetscape Phase 2A, Section I would be completed by the end of July. Mayor Neisler has reiterated that comment several times throughout the month of July.

tice.” “Our state-level work shows we can be dynamic and creative with our trade partners. Whilst we continue engaging with Washington D.C., we’re speaking to businesses and political leaders right across America – from North Carolina to California – to grow our already £200bn trade relationship,” Penny Mordaunt, Minister of State for International Trade said. “North Carolina is home to some of the US’ most exciting companies – from Honeywell to Labcorp – and was recently named America’s top state for business. Our twin-track approach to trade with the US is helping cut bureaucracy, reduce costs and increase exports and investment, and I look forward to seeing UK businesses reap the benefits. The UK is continuing to seek out ways to remove barriers to trade at a state-level as part of a wider US trade strategy. We plan to sign additional agreements with Oklahoma and South Carolina in the coming months, with even more in the pipeline. The UK has also delivered major trade breakthroughs at the federal level. This includes removing restrictions preventing high-quality Welsh lamb and Scottish beef from being sold in the US and resolving the Section 232 tariff dispute, resulting in the removal of 25% tariffs on British steel, a huge win for UK steelmakers.” “On behalf of our network of chapters and members across the UK and USA, BritishAmerican Business is pleased to see the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on trade and investment between the United Kingdom and the state of North Carolina,” Duncan Edwards CEO BritishAmerican Business said. “The UK and USA have an outstanding trade and investment relationship but there is always more that can be done to make it better. Agreements such as this are helpful in cre-

ating ways for businesses from both markets to fully understand the opportunities available to them as they plan their expansion across the Atlantic.” “This agreement recognizes our longstanding relationship with the United Kingdom,” said North Carolina Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders. “It further underscores and aligns our shared commitment to advancing economic opportunities within the clean energy industry, including offshore wind.” North Carolina and the United Kingdom aim to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible, accelerate the development of clean energy industries, increase economic opportunities for citizens and residents, promote equity and environmental justice, and prioritize opportunities in government procurement processes. To reach these goals, North Carolina and the United Kingdom intend to share information and best practices, conduct missions with government officials, facilitate partnerships among private-sector companies, connect institutions of higher education, collaborate on events, and explore opportunities to increase investment in key sectors. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will be implemented through a working group with participants from North Carolina and the United Kingdom. North Carolina Secretary of Commerce Machelle Baker Sanders presented the MOU from the Governor to United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Secretary for International Trade in a signing ceremony in London. While in London, Secretary Sanders also has represented the State at the Farnborough International Airshow and various economic development meetings.

When you give it the eye test it seems what lies in front of you is too small and too shallow to hold anything of real value. It may even seem God has given you a Ranger Bass Boat, but only a stream to fish in. But what you must remember is that faith is more about seeing through the eye than it is in seeing with the eye. Faith doesn’t look at the small and insignificant stream, but it

ALWS welcomes T-28 Trojan Warbirds and Golden Knights to Keeter Stadium Pilots in three T-28 Trojan warbirds are scheduled to execute flyovers at Keeter Stadium during the first three days of the 2022 American Legion World Series. Warbirds are vintage military aircraft now operated by civilian organizations or individuals. The T-28s headed for Shelby are retired military trainers now owned by The Museum of Flight in Rome, Georgia. The first flyover is planned as part of the Parade of Champions on Aug. 11, opening day of the tournament. All eight of the regional teams vying for the national title will line up on Veterans Field between the third and fourth games of the day. The pilots will execute another flyover of the stadium during the Friday evening games. The warbirds will be on display to the public at the Shelby-Cleveland County Regional Airport Saturday morning from 10:00 to noon; the pilots will execute a final flyover at the stadium Saturday afternoon as part of USAA Military Appreciation Day. “It will be loud and lively,” says Robert Farrow, the ALWS volunteer who coordinated the warbirds appearance. Farrow, a U.S. Navy veteran and a retired air traffic controller, has produced and served as air boss for several air shows. “These aircraft travel across the county raising awareness of aviation and the important role it has played in shaping our nation’s history,”

Farrow says. “It’s a great way for us to remember and honor the sacrifice of veterans who have served in the past, as well as those currently serving on active duty.” The Museum of Flight, established in 2010, has displays and a collection of flight and military memorabilia in addition to the warbirds, which are flown in air shows around the southeastern United States. The T-28Alpha and T28Bravo served in Operation Farm Gate, code name for a mission in Vietnam. The T28Charlie is attributed as the first T-28 to land on an aircraft carrier, the USS Tarawa. Museum of Flight Director Christine Lewis told the ALWS committee: “Thank you for the opportunity to execute our mission, to increase the awareness of aviation through the flight of historic aircraft while supporting the local children’s hospital (in Georgia). I’ve heard it said, ‘Anyone who does anything to help a child is a hero’. What the ALWS does is just that.” Farrow also coordinated another military group to awe the fans before the championship game on Tuesday, Aug. 16. The U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights, will perform before the 7:oo PM game. The two Golden Knights demonstration teams travel the United States performing for public audiences at venues ranging from small civic events to nationally and internationally televised

events, such as NFL games, NASCAR races, and international air shows. Team members are from a variety of backgrounds in one of the 150 jobs in the U.S. Army. The parachutists perform to exacting standards but may tailor their performance for a specific venue. The Golden Knights have an unparalleled safety record in the professional parachuting arena. The Golden Knights also have competition teams who have won national and international competitions. They hold the current military world record in both male and female four-way freefall formation and the world record in canopy piloting speed. The Golden Knights tandem section provides tandem parachute jumps to approved local and national celebrities, media personnel, and VIPs. It was a Golden Knights team that jumped with the late President George H.W. Bush in 2007, 2012, and 2014. The Golden Knights are headquartered at Fort Bragg, N.C. “The Golden Knights are the premiere skydiving team in the world – the best of the best,” says Andrew Hopper, an Army veteran, Shelby City Councilman, and member of the ALWS committee. “As a former paratrooper, I am excited for the City of Shelby to have them perform here. I’m sure everyone, especially the American Legion officials here, will enjoy this. It’s going to be a fantastic day!”

Health Alert about Parechovirus in babies The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a health advisory notifying health care providers that parechovirus is currently circulating in the U.S. Since May 2022, the organization has received reports from health care providers in “multiple states” of parechovirus infections in newborns and young babies. The CDC is encouraging clinicians to consider parechovirus in “infants presenting with fever, sepsis-like syndrome, or neurologic illness (seizures, meningitis) without another known cause

and to test for parechovirus in children with signs and symptoms” that may indicate an infection, according to the alert. This may sound unsettling, but it’s important to know that this is a “common virus” that typically spreads during the summer and fall, Ian C. Michelow, MD, division head of pediatric infectious diseases and immunology at Connecticut Children’s Specialty Group, tells SELF. “It’s become newsworthy because there have been a lot of cases recently and some severe outcomes in some of these babies.”

If you have a little one in your life, it is understandable to have questions, but experts stress that awareness is key. Here is what you need to know about parechovirus and why it is getting more attention than usual right now. Parechovirus is a common childhood illness that can cause a wide range of symptoms, ranging from none to severe illness, the CDC says. There are four types of parechoviruses; PeV-A3—the one that is currently circulating and causing concern—is the most linked with severe disease.

Symptoms of parechovirus in infants and children between the ages of six months and five years can include fever, a skin rash, nausea or digestive discomfort, and symptoms associated with an upper respiratory tract infection like a sore throat and fatigue. But the illness can become severe in children less than three months old. Complications can potentially include sepsis-like illness, which can present with a high fever, breathing irregularities, or confusion. Meningitis or meningoencephalitis is

also a possibility, especially in infants younger than one month, which can lead to neurological symptoms like headache, neck stiffness, or seizures. This virus is not limited to little ones, though. Anyone can contract parechovirus, Danelle Fisher MD, pediatrician and chair of pediatrics at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, tells SELF. “For adults, it can just present as the common cold,” she says. While premature and immunocompromised infants are considered high risk for

most illnesses, Dr. Fisher says the risk for serious complications of parechovirus really boils down to age. “The little babies—especially those who are newborn and in the first three months of life when they have a blank immune system—can have symptoms that are more severe,” she says. That does not mean your baby is guaranteed to get really sick if they happen to contract parechovirus, though. “I personally have diagnosed four babies in the last month who did very well,” Dr. Michelow says.


Should You Take Daily Aspirin for Your Heart? Dear Savvy Senior, I’ve been taking daily aspirin for almost 20 years now because I have a family history of heart disease. But I recently read that using aspirin is not recommended anymore. What can you tell me about this change in philosophy? Confused Aspirin User

Dear Confused, There’s no doubt that taking lowdose daily aspirin is beneficial to most people who’ve had a heart attack or stroke. But if you don’t have heart disease, should you take it as a preventative measure? The answer for most people is probably not, according to new guidelines from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), a widely respected independent panel that develops recommendations on preventive health care. Here’s what you should know. New Guidelines For years, aspirin has been a go-to pill Americans use to help ward off cardiovascular disease because of its blood thinning capability. But like most medicines, it can cause serious side effects. Aspirin irritates the

stomach lining and can cause bleeding in the stomach, intestines and brain which can be life-threatening. And the risk of bleeding increases with age.

About one-third of Americans age 40 and older, and more than 45 percent of people over age 70 – who don’t have cardiovascular disease – already take a daily aspirin to help prevent cardiovascular disease because it’s been recommended for decades by many different health experts. But in the past few years, new research has emerged showing that for many people without diagnosed heart disease, the risk of bleeding may outweigh the benefits of taking a daily aspirin. This research, along with the advent of other effective therapies in preventing heart attacks and strokes that don’t cause bleeding – better blood pressure drugs and statins for lowering cholesterol – has narrowed the role aspirin plays. Here’s a breakdown of the updated USPSTF guidelines of who should, and shouldn’t, take a daily aspirin, and for those who should, how to

take it safely.

Who Should Take It? There are two categories of people who can still benefit from using aspirin. People with established cardiovascular disease, especially those who have already had a heart attack or stroke. There’s strong evidence that taking a daily low-dose aspirin significantly reduces the risk of a second cardiovascular event. And adults ages 40 to 59 with a 10 percent or higher risk for a cardiovascular disease over the next decade. They may see a small benefit to daily aspirin, but it should be an individual decision and discussed with your doctor. Who Should Skip It? People who are 60 and older – without established cardiovascular disease – who do not currently take a daily aspirin to prevent heart disease should not start now. This is particularly true for people with a history of bleeding, say from ulcers or aneurysms, or those taking medications such as blood thinners, steroids or anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen or naproxen. If they already take a daily aspirin now, they should ask a

doctor about how to proceed, because there may be a serious risk to suddenly stopping. How to Use it Safely The best approach is to talk to your doctor about the potential risks and benefits of aspirin specifically for you. Because the risk of bleeding raises with dosage, if aspirin is recommended, take the lowest possible amount, which for most people is an 81 mg baby aspirin. And if you experience any stomach pain, talk to your doctor. You should also know that in 2016 the USPSTF suggested that daily aspirin use could also help lower the risk of colorectal cancer along with cardiovascular disease. But the group now says there’s not enough evidence to support that claim. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org.
