CAROLINA COAST BAND GARY LOWDER & SMOKIN’ HOT By Loretta Cozart Streetscape work on W. Mountain Street continues, as sidewalks are being poured and stamped. The project is running late, as this section was to be completed by the end of July. Nonetheless, merchants are pleased for the progress and hopes are high it will be finished quicker than expected.Merchant Iris Hubbard is holding a contest that ran through the end of July asking her patrons to guess when W. Mountain Street will reopen. Winner gets a free lunch for six. If multiple guests choose the same date, a drawing will be held between them. Other merchants have kept their chins up during this time, struggling with rents and loss of revenue. On Tuesday, August 11, city council discussed a low or no-interest loan for merchants who struggled during this period. Details will be shared as soon as they are known.

Forty-two years ago, downtown Kings Mountain was going through revitalization. In July 1980, city crews were repaving East Gold Street and constructing new sidewalks on BattlegroundEastAvenue.Gold Street was widened from Battleground Avenue to York Road. That same year, the city put turning lanes on Cherokee Street and Battleground Avenue, added planters in the sidewalks, and added lighting. That same year, Fred Kiser took a closer look at the old B&B Restaurant. The theme set by the Revitalization Committee was “Kings Mountain Comes Alive,” and promotions were planned around that theme.

of Psalms, I will often sing or preach passages to myself the same way they were written. For instance, in Psalm 43:5, the Psalmist asks two questions and then answers himself. Speak this aloud, “Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” Even the Psalmist needed encouragement and essentially reminded himself to hope in God. May we put our hope and trust in God so that we can offer this song of thanks to the Lord, “Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above Ye Heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.” Today, I hope this devotion resonates with you. I hope you will be encouraged when you recall what God has done for you. Whether in song, scripture, or beholding God’s handiwork in creation, we do have reason to praise. Finally, if we pass by each other in town this week, feel free to break out into song, “Oh, what a beautiful morning.” I will gladly sing along with you. I am ingnon-morn-forelongandoftenance,annoy-myMuchadmitperson;morningaIit.towife’sItalksingbe-thepeople are ready for communication. From time to time, I burst out singing, whether coming back from the gym or sipping coffee on the back porch rocking chair. One song, in particular, starts these predawn serenades, “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning,” from the musical Oklahoma. “There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow. There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow. The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye. And it looks like it’s climbing up to the sky.” I dare say most of you know this chorus. Everyone sing along, “Oh, what a beautiful mornin’, Oh, what a beautiful day.I’ve got a beautiful feelin’Everything’s goin’ myThankway.”you for indulging me. Even though I know the day will not be perfect, the tune and lyrics help put me in a positive frame of mind. Much more significant than this cheerful song, the Bible gives me reasons to celebrate and praise the Lord. Psalm 59:16 calls us to praise, “But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and refuge in the day of my distress.” The Psalms are incredibly important to me and to all believers because they meet us where we are in life. The Psalms do not sugarcoat life’s problems yet give us reason to praise God even amid trials and distress. Indeed, we reflect on how God has been our refuge time after time, which causes us to praise God all the Regardingmore. the book Dr.M.JonathanBundon Worship Pastor First Baptist Church Oh, What a Beautiful Morning

Southern Arts Society in Kings Mountain features local artist Jeffrey J. Bowers with a one-person show “Jeffrey J Bowers - the plein air collection”. All the paintings shown in this exhibit are painted “en plein air” or “in the open air” on location. Bowers considers himself an artist in the Modern Impressionist style. Working in acrylics, he paints landscapes, cityscapes, still life, pets, buildings, and vehicles in and around the Piedmont area of western North Carolina. There are 36 paintings in this exhibit, with the majority featuring landscapes and city scenes in Gastonia, where Bowers lives. The public is invited to meet Mr. Bowers at a public reception Saturday August 13th from 6-8 pm. The show is on view now through September 17, 2022. To keep his artistic skills sharp, Bowers paints outdoors, “in the open air” as often as possible. His dedication was rewarded recently when the 12th Annual PleinAir Salon Art Competition announced its monthly winners for their April Competition. The PleinAir Salon is a national online art competition hosted by PleinAir Magazine. Bowers was awarded the best Plein Air winner in the Acrylic Category for April with his painting titled, “Late Summer Afternoon”. This puts Bowers in the running, along with other monthly winners for the grand prize, to be announced in May 2023.Even when working on location, most of Bowers’ paintings are completed in less than two hours. Smaller canvases, and water based acrylic paint call for fast paced brushwork. Bowers uses his commercial art training to accurately draw the foundation of the painting, then using as few brushstrokes and details as possible, he quickly captures the feeling and atmosphere of the scene. An accomplished artist, Bowers takes great satisfaction in mixing colors on his palette to match what nature presents in front of him. And while painting in the “impressionist” style concentrates on light and color over detail, locations and objects are easily recognizable to the viewer. “Jeffrey J Bowers - the plein air collection” is on view in the galleries of Southern Arts Society through September 17, and online at www.SouthernArtsSociety.org. Artwork in the exhibit is available for sale. You can also see more of Bowers artwork on his website https://jeffreyjbowers.com/. Bowers is currently a member of the North Carolina Plein Air Painters and the Gaston County Art SouthernGuild.ArtsSociety (SASi) Gift Shop & Gallery is located at 301 N. enuesgroundandofintersectionAve.PiedmontatthePiedmontBattle-Av-inthe historic Southern Railway Depot. SASi offers a gift shop, ongoing art exhibitions and competitions, programs, and classes in a variety of media for artists of all levels. Currently on exhibit: “Jeffrey J Bowersthe plein air collection” on view August 2 through September 17, 2022. Public Reception Saturday August 13th, from 6-8 pm.

counties, Governor Roy Cooper announced today. The company will invest more than $33.9 million to expand its capacity in Kings Mountain and build a new facility in Fayetteville. “When companies already in North Carolina choose to expand here, it’s a great vote of confidence,” said Governor Cooper. “Our ability to support NVR’s growth demonstrates the reliability of our workforce, access to supply chains, and quality of life as attractive tools to meet the increasing demands of the homebuilding Secretarytives,”supportnershipsworkforceplaceswillmortgagecompanyproducts,InHeartlandRyanhomesNVRHeadquarteredindustry.”inVirginia,sellsandconstructsunderthebrandsofHomes,NVHomes,andHomesin15states.additiontohomebuildingtheFortune500alsooperatesadivision.“CompanieslikeNVRcontinuetothriveinwhereaworld-classandstrongpart-areavailabletotheirbusinessobjec-saidN.C.CommerceMachelleBaker
Sanders. “North Carolina not only has a strong manufacturing economy and the largest manufacturing workforce in the Southeast, but it also has a commitment to building a well-prepared workforce with its multi-tiered talent-focused strategic economic developmentTheplan.”North Carolina Department of Commerce led the state’s efforts to support the company’s expansion in North Carolina. Salaries for the new positions will vary, but altogether, the average annual salary for the positions is $46,510, which is above the average salaries in Cleveland and Cumberland counties. The project could create a potential annual payroll impact of more than $12.8 million per NVR’syear. expansion will be facilitated, in part, by a Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee earlier today. Over the course of the 12-year term of the grant, the project is estimated to grow the state’s economy by more than $516 million. Using a formula that takes into account the new tax revenues generated by the 261 new jobs, the JDIG agreement authorizes the potential reimbursement to the company of up to $1,635,000 spread over 12 years. Payments for all JDIGs only occur following performance verification by the departments of Commerce and Revenue that the company has met its incremental job creation and investment targets. JDIG projects result in positive net tax revenue to the state treasury, even after taking into consideration the grant’s reimbursement payments to a given company. “We are excited to welcome these additional jobs and increased investment to Cleveland County,” said N.C. Senator W. Ted Alexander. “With affordable corporate taxes and creative training systems, this announcement further validates that North Carolina is indeed the best place to do Partneringbusiness.”with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, North Carolina Department of Transportation, North Carolina Community College System, Cleveland County, Cumberland County, Cleveland County Economic Development Partnership, Fayetteville Cumberland Economic Development Corporation, City of Kings Mountain, and City of Fayetteville.
Streetscape Phase 2A completion projected for end of Aug., early Sept. GOV. COOPER
By Loretta Cozart In an email to downtown business and property owners on Monday, August 8, City of Kings Mountain shared why Streetscape is moving more slowly than planned.Assistant City Manager Nick Hendricks shared, “As you have seen, the sidewalks are being poured and the area is beginning to look like a streetscape. Though it has been challenging for all involved, when it is finished it will be something I know we all can be proud of.” He continued saying, “I also wanted to explain the reason that we are not moving just yet to the next section, and it is the end of the first week of August. Several things have delayed the timeline, however most all of these were either needed additions or discovered issues that required additional designHendrickswork.” outlined the reason for delays sharing, “The most recent work on N. Cherokee Street, involved my decision to bring AT&T and Spectrum in and remove several unsightly utility poles and a mass of overhead communication wiring.”“The city electric division has worked over the last couple of weeks installing new poles near the rear entrance to the Police Department and behind the old Wells Fargo building. This was done to reroute electric lines and communication lines from above the Bullock building and to install the electric services to the Police Department, Dellinger’s, Mountain Holiday, and Ervin Clinic underground from new utility pole locations.”“Once AT&T and Spectrum reroute their lines by next Friday, the two old poles that were in the sidewalk along N. Cherokee Street will be permanently removed. This work did require about a week’s delay, to install conduits and pull boxes in and under the street and sidewalks to serve the BullockRegardingbuilding.”thesidewalks on W. Mountain Street, Hendricks shared, “Last week when the sidewalk pours began it was realized that scheduling and receiving concrete was not a sure thing. Concrete has been scheduled and crews have had to wait for several hours on trucks that were expected earlier or cancelled altogether.”After calling around to multiple suppliers, not one is willing to offer any better service. Unfortunately, this is something we are going to have to try and live with and manage, which is causing the sidewalk work to go much slower than originally planned for. We are also hearing this from other contractors that are trying to schedule for concrete work on other jobs in the area,” he continued.“Theshortage is being attributed to the construction boom, coupled with labor and supply shortages. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do to mitigate this, and hope that things improve soon. Hopefully, we will be moving to the next section by the end of August, first of September. This brings me to the next item I want to update you on.”Hendricks then shared that the city has now decided to pave both sections of W. Mountain Street at one time. The city plans to patch asphalt the first section and place temporary markings so the street can be opened. The reasoning is that the newly finished section would be subject to dirt and dust from the next section. The city also plans to install the lighting and fill the planters with dirt and mulch.Inaddition, he shared that he received the plans from Ken Phlieger for the alleyway and he is pleased with the proposed design.

KMHS football 100th year anniversary dinner October 20
The opening of the 100th season of Kings Mountain High School football is right around the corner and fans have a chance to see what’s to come when the Mountaineers host the annual Cleveland County Jamboree Friday night at John Gamble Stadium.Allfour county teams will be facing good competition. Crest takes on Newton-Conover at 6 p.m., followed by Burns and Cox Mill at 7, Shelby and Reagan at 8 and the Mountaineers and Monroe at Kings9. Mountain’s game may be the best as the Mountaineers and Monroe have been involved in barn-burners every time they’ve met. In their last outing at Monroe the Mountaineers won but in their last meeting here in the 2020 “spring” season Monroe knocked them out of the playoffs to end their perfect 8-0 regular “Monroeseason.isgoing to be very good,” says Mountaineer coach Greg Lloyd. “They have a three-year starter at quarterback. He was their starter as a sophomore when they beat us in the first round of the playoffs in the COVID spring season. He is a dual threat.“They have a ton of speed,” he added. “They are a top tier team that’s going to be a very good team for us to play.“And the first three games (Shelby, Asheville and Burns) will be really good, too,” he added. “All of our county teams are going to be real good competition. We’re going to have to play at a very high level.” Lloyd said his main goal going into the jamboree is to see how much his team has improved during early practice.“We have a lot of players back,” he noted, “but we will be working on getting new guys in and seeing what they can do. We’re going to try to get all of our young guys some good competition.”

Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office held their first National Night Out event on August 2, in Uptown Shelby, from 6 p.m. -8:30 p.m. National Night Out is an event that provides a great opportunity to bring Law Enforcement Officers and the community together under positive circumstances. This year, 34 deputies participated in the event which represented seven different divisions of the Sheriff’s Office. CCSO shared 17 dozen doughnuts, coffee, and fellowship with the community, while giving away 50 insulated tumblers, 150 Logo cups & coasters, 300 key chains, and 50 Sheriff’s Office T-shirts to kids at the event. The atmosphere was festive, and a wonderful time was had by all. An estimated 400 people attended during the two-and-a-half-hour event, and the sheriff’s office looks forward to holding this event in the years to come. Sheriff Norman said “It goes to show that Cleveland County has a strong base of support for our law enforcement officers. We can always count on our citizens to support our efforts to help us locate missing persons or identify persons of interest in crimes, which makes the community a safer place to live. Last night was a national event but we, at the Sheriff’s Office engage our citizens throughout the year with other events around the county.”

By Deputy Health Director DeShay Oliver The Cleveland County Health Department is reporting the first case of monkeypox virus infection in a Cleveland County resident, confirmed by testing at the State Laboratory of Public Health. Monkeypox is a rare, but potentially serious, viral illness that typically involves flu-like symptoms, swelling of the lymph nodes and a rash that includes bumps that are initially filled with fluid before scabbing over. Illness could be confused with a sexually transmitted infection like syphilis or herpes, or with varicella zoster virus (chickenpox). Most infections last two to four weeks. The Cleveland County Health Department is working closely with NCDHHS and the patient to identify and notify individuals who may have been in contact with the patient while infectious. Monkeypox is typically spread by skin-to-skin contact. The person is currently isolating at home. No further information will be shared about this case to protect the patient’s privacy. Since May 2022, 3,308 monkeypox cases have been identified outside of endemic regions worldwide, with 6,617 cases identified in the United States and 72 cases in North Carolina. There have been no deaths related to this outbreak.“Thenumber of monkeypox cases has been growing in the U.S. and globally,” Cleveland County Deputy Health Director DeShay Oliver said. “Though this is the See MONKEYPOX, Page 8B

Dear Savvy Senior, A few months ago, I read a column you wrote on extremely cheap smartphone plans for budget-conscious seniors. Can you do a similar column for those of us who still use basic ﬂip phones? My old 3G ﬂip phone is about to become obsolete, so I’m looking for the cheapest possible replacement. I only need a simple cell phone (no data) for emergency calls when I’m away from home. Penny Pincher Dear Penny, For many seniors, like yourself, who only want a simple basic cell phone for emergency purposes and occasional calls, there are a number of super cheap plans available from small wireless providers you may have never heard of. Here are some of the best deals available right now.

Consumer Cellular (ConsumerCellular.com), which provides an unlimited talk plan or $15 per month. They also give 5 percent discounts to AARP members. And Lively (Lively. com), maker of the popular Jitterbug Flip2 senior-friendly ﬂip phone. Their cheapest monthly plan is 300 minutes of talk and text for YouSubsidized$15.Plansalsoneedto know that if you’re on a government program such as Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income or food stamps/SNAP. Or, if your annual household income is at or below 135 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines – $18,347 for one person, or $24,719 for two – you might also qualify for free or subsidized wireless plans from various carriers via the federal Lifeline program.

We are encouraging people who have a rash or skin lesion that looks like monkeypox to get tested.”Monkeypox is transmitted person to person through direct skin-to-skin contact, having contact with an infectious rash, through body fluids or through respiratory secretions. Such contact often occurs during prolonged faceto-face contact or during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, cuddling or sex.
