On Monday, August 15, City of Kings Mountain held a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. to discuss a potential incentive loan program for businesses in downtown who are impacted by Streetscape. The room filled, all chairs taken, with only standing room available, showed support for local businessowners as they struggle to stay in business during the Streetscape project.This meeting is a continuation of one held on Thursday, August 11, where Economic Development Director Stuart Gilbert discussed the parameters of a loan program for downtown merchants impacted by this project. During his presentation, Gilbert commented that some merchants were looking for free money, to which many downtown merchants took offense. Public comment was not allowed at that time. Monday evening’s meeting called for public input and several merchants and property owners spoke. They were joined by citizens who also came to support them. Those who talked asked for redress, pleading that the city remedy their situation due to hardships placed upon them by Streetscape. Mountain Holiday owner Beth Allen’s presentation most succinctly shared the frustrations of many in the room when she addressed city council saying, “Thank you for upgrading our town to make it a place where people will want to visit. But I want to talk about right now. The way it is, there won’t be a future for Mountain Holiday,” her voice wavered. “I am proud to be a part of what we have established, and I hate to see it be under attack. Mountain Holiday is my dream. And, by God, you are crushing it down to where it’s absolutely nothing.

On Thursday, June 9, the Centers for Disease Control shared how Monkeypox spreads. The virus is a completely different virus than the viruses that cause COVID-19 or measles. It is not known to linger in the air and is not transmitted during short periods of sharedMonkeypoxairspace. spreads through direct contact with body fluids or sores on the body of someone who has monkeypox, or with direct contact with materials that have touched body fluids or sores, such as clothing or linens. It may also spread through respiratory secretions when people have close, face-to-face contact. In the current monkeypox outbreak, they know that those with disease generally describe close, sustained physical contact with other people who are infected with the virus. Prior studies of monkeypox outbreaks show that spread of monkeypox virus by respiratory secretions appears uncommon. Most cases of monkeypox report close contact with an infectious person. While we do not know with certainty what role direct physical contact has versus the role of respiratory secretions, in instances where people who have monkeypox have travelled on airplanes, no known cases of monkeypox occurred in people seated around them, even on long international flights. There are major differences between airborne transmission and transmission via respiratory secretions. Airborne transmission occurs when small virus particles become suspended in the air and can stay there for periods of time. These particles can spread on air currents, or sometimes even infect people who enter a room after the infected person has left. In contrast, monkeypox may be found in droplets like saliva or respiratory secretions that drop out of the air quickly. Long See MONKEYPOX, Page 11A

Gaston County’s eighth rabies case With vaccines, treatments, and other tools to combat COVID19 widely available, and with new legislation now providing the requested flexibility to North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and health care providers to continue to respond, the state is poised to continue comprehensive pandemic response without the need for the State of Emergency.

Many of the state’s public health measures combatting the pandemic had previously been lifted, but the State of Emergency continued to allow the distribution of vaccines and tests and regulatory flexibility to ensure staff capacity in the state’s healthcare system. Following legislative changes made in the budget signed by Gov. Cooper in July that allow NCDHHS to continue to respond to the pandemic, the State of Emergency can be lifted.“Thepandemic brought unprecedented challenges to our state and people now have the knowledge and the tools like vaccines, boosters and therapeutic treatments to keep them safe,” said Governor Cooper. “Executive orders issued under the State of Emergency protected public health and helped us save lives and livelihoods. North Carolina is emerging even stronger than before and my administration will continue to work to protect the health and safety of our people.”“COVID-19 is still with us, and North Carolinians now have multiple ways to manage the virus, so it doesn’t manage us,” said NCDHHS Secretary Kody H. Kinsley. “NCDHHS will remain focused on COVID-19 trends and data and ensuring we stay prepared.”

Run Your Race

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in Hebrewsheaven.1:5 were a rallying cry to every Christian. Keep running. Keep running your race for Christ. Are you young in the faith? Keep running for God. Are you a seasoned senior citizen? Keep running! Has your life taken unexpected turns due to your choices or the choices of others? Keep running. If you are reading this today, you are still in the race, don’t stop. Press on toward the mark. Paul declares in Philippians, “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14) The old spiritual’s simple words are some of the most poignant to me: Guide my feet while I run this race Guide my feet while I run this race Guide my feet while I run this race ‘cause I don’t want to run this race in vain Once again, Paul testifies in Acts, “if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God.” (Acts 20:24). Wherever this devotional finds you, run your race to obtain the prize. You may suffer loss, injury, and discouragement, but keep running. And remember, Jesus is with you cheering you on to the finish line. Your fellow runner, Jonathan me, is more fun, but my knees won’t allow it. Running takes practice, pacing, and perseverance. Almost every day, I pass walkers or runners on my commute to work, and rarely do I see them grinning from ear to ear. For most, the completion, not always the journey, brings the joy of a job well done. Perhaps this is why the apostle Paul likened the Christian life to a race. 2 Timothy recounts Paul’s words, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7). Paul encouraged Timothy, and encouraged us with these words toward the end of his life. Paul, often considered one of the greatest Gospel preachers ever, knew the end was near and reflected on his life and his ministry; he also wanted to instruct Timothy and us to run our race to the end. In Corinthians, Paul again uses the illustration of a runner to make his point, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things, and they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.” 1 CorinthiansEvery9:24-25.singleone of us is running a race on this earth. For some, the race is nearing completion. For others, the race has only begun. Even more, the race hasn’t gone as you thought it would. You have fallen, suffered injuries, and want to quit. Keep running. Look at Paul. His life was anything but ideal. What we know of him, this man started by persecuting Christians and encountered God somewhere in his earthly journey. Paul began to run a different race for God yet suffered persecution, including beatings, imprisonment, and attempted murder. Ultimately, Paul would give his life for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Did he sound disappointed? Never. Some of the last words written by him Dr.M.JonathanBundon Worship Pastor First Baptist Church

This has been a record year of blueberry production and Lawrence has seen yield of twice the number of quarts collected compared to last year.Since 1998, he has kept meticulous notes about the date, amount, and time of day he picks his blueberries. He keeps a second book recording the weather, temperatures, and humidity. No detail is left unrecorded. “I first planted blueberries in 1980, when the state started construction on the by-pass. Toby William’s dad had a place near Irvin Allen, where the bridge is. He had peach trees, apple trees, cherry trees, and enough blueberry bushes … they were as big as my house,” he recalled. “Toby’s wife Margaret wanted to transplant some blueberry bushes and did so behind her house on Countryside Drive. She called me up and said, ‘If you want any blueberry bushes, you ought to get out here because the bulldozer is parked here, and they are getting ready to go.’” Etters went right over and dug six blueberry bushes. But he didn’t know much about growing blueberries at the time. He worked at the Lab at Foote Mineral, so he researched how to best plant blueberries to get the best production.“Theinstructions said to find an old sawdust pile and gather the sawdust. The older the pile, the better. Then I dug a hole bigger than normal, put the plant in, placed the sawdust around it, and filled the hole with soil. The instructions said to ‘check your pH,’ so I put some dirt in distilled water and put in a pH probe. For blueberries, the soil needs to be acidic,” he explained. “I was off on the pH, so I went to the Farm Center and picked up some Aluminum Sulfate and worked that into the soil. A week later, I tested again. And Bingo, it was just right, around 5.7 or 5.8! I have never touched them since. I just watch them and water if it gets too dry.” This has been a unique year for Etters’ blueberries. “I believe the hot weather accelerated their growth. In the first week, I just picked a few berries, enough to put on my cereal. Within a week, I was picking quarts. When I climbed the ladder and started looking down, it looked like I was picking concord grapes.” He described, “The blueberries were in clusters of 18 to 20, and all but a few were ripe. That has never happened before. When I picked 89 quarts, I looked back at my records for the same date last year, and I had only picked 43 quarts. It wasLawrenceamazing.”normally offers his blueberries to friends. But with so many blueberries picked this year, he asked Keith Falls if he brought him some blueberries, would he sell them. And Keith agreed. At the time, blueberries were selling for $6 per quart, so they settled on a sales price of $4.50 and those berries were gone in no time. “I took him 28 quarts, and all of them sold.”Stella described Lawrence’s blueberries this way, “I’ve been getting my blueberries from him. I love them and my kids love them. They are the biggest and juiciest berries. The thought he puts into them, it is amazing. His is a remarkable story.”

First through 12th grade. He served his country in Korea for 14-months and was discharged on December 9, 1963. And then he had his career at Foote Mineral working in theLawrencelab. takes immense joy in his blueberries, picking them early in the day, or late in the afternoon. As the berry picking season winds down, he has decided to leave the last remaining blueberries for the birds. “There comes a time with the bushes tell you they are done for the season,” he says.After producing a record 104.5 quarts of blueberries this year, both the bushes and Lawrence have experienced an amazing season of both growing and picking. And he has the data to prove it.

Lawrence looks back on when he first planted the blueberry bushes and only has one regret. “When I planted them, I had no idea how they would grow. I planted them on an incline in my yard and the plants have spread. One side of the bushes is on level ground, but the other is on the incline. If you plant blueberry bushes, plant them in a flat area with space to grow,” he suggests. That is good advice because you must climb to the canopy to get the best berries. If you see Lawrence out, be sure to say hello. He has lived in Kings Mountain his whole life. His parents moved into the house where he lives in October 1943, where they raised their eight children. “When we moved here, none of what you see now existed. The by-pass didn’t exist,” he shared. He attended Central School from

Local students speak out against youth marijuana use

• Be aware of your surroundings. Don’t let cellphones become a distraction by walking while texting or looking down at your cellphone.

The Cleveland County Public Health Board recognized winners of the When the Smoke Clears Youth Marijuana Prevention Video Contest at their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, August 9, 2022. The When the Smoke Clears Video Contest was a contest that closed in May of last school year in which Cleveland County students in 7th – 12th grade were encouraged to design and submit a 30 second video using the platform of their choice to raise awareness about the negative consequences of youth marijuana use. The submissions were judged by members of the Cleveland County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition (SAPC) using a scoring rubric and winners were selected from two grade categories: 7th – 9th and 10th – 12th. First place winners received $110 in gift cards and an Apple watch, second place winners received $110 in gift cards, and third place winners received $60 in gift cards.The winners of the contest are as follows: 6th – 9th Grade Category:1st place – Sadie Oliver, Shelby High School 2nd place – Janejah Coleman, Shelby High School3rdplace – Zac and Zoie Bolin, Cleveland Early College High School 10th – 12th Grade Category:1st place – Adrian Cook, Crest High School 2nd place – Maliyah Allen, Crest High School This contest was sponsored by SAPC in partnership with the Cleveland County Health Department and the Healthcare Foundation of Cleveland County. According to the 2021 Pride Survey sponsored by SAPC that is conducted in Cleveland County Schools every other year, 24% of 12th graders, 8% of 9th graders, and 0.7% of 6th graders reported using marijuana in the past year. “We commend these winners and all the students who participated in this contest for their courage and willingness to speak out against youth marijuana use,” said DeShay Oliver, Cleveland County Deputy Health Director. “Middle school and even high school are a vulnerable time for many young people when they are trying to figure out who they are and where they fit in. While there are more young people who don’t use marijuana than those that do, speaking out against marijuana use isn’t easy or always a popular choice amongst youth. We wanted to provide a platform for our young people to be a part of the solution to the challenges they face.” For more information on the Cleveland County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, youth substance use, or how to engage kids in the conversation, please visit

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in recent years there were an average of 128 fatalities in school transportation-related traffic crashes each year and more school-aged pedestrians have been killed during the hours of 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. than any other time of :Childrenday. are often eager to get off the school bus because they are excited to tell their parents about all of the fun, they had at school that day,” said Sheriff Norman. “It is crucial that parents re-enforce the school bus safety rules children learn at school.”Sheriff Norman also suggests that parents drive their child’s bus route with them to practice the proper safety precautions they can take to help ensure their child enjoys a safe ride to and from school. Sheriff Norman encourages all parents to discuss the following safety measures with their children: See SCHOOL, Page 10A

This first time away from home and their first experience with total independence. It’s an exciting time and a dangerous one. Concerned with this safety issue, Sheriff Alan Norman of Cleveland County urges college students to exercise caution when living on campus.Across the United States college campuses are increasing security measures by installing emergency call box systems designed to immediately contact a 911 operator. They are usually located in frequently traveled areas such as parking lots and main routes used to and from class. Another popular security measure involves campus escorts. This program recruits qualified volunteers to walk students to and from class after dark. Security cameras and bright lighting are also being used to heighten campus safety. “College campuses are extremely vulnerable to crime because of their openness,” said Sheriff Norman. “It’s difficult to keep buildings and dorm rooms locked because people are constantly coming and going. Another contributing factor is that students tend to develop a false sense of security because of the seemingly peaceful utesroomtionawayintruderorontionsafetyselvesprotectcollegesomeever,tojustrape,manyCampussurroundings.”crimescantakeforms–theft,dateanddrugstonameafew.It’simpossibleavoidalldangers.How-SheriffNormanhassuggestionsonhowstudentscanbetterandeducatethem-throughcampuseducation.•Neverpostinforma-astoyourwhereaboutsyourdormroomdoor,onsocialmedia.Ifanknowsthatyouare–it’sanopeninvita-forthemtobreakin.•Evenifleavingyourforonlyafewmin-–lockyourdoor.

• Hiring a full-time qualified City Marketing Manager•Creating a position within city hall to do nothing but support businesses in greater Kings Mountain. This person would attract businesses by providing support and assist small businesses on a full-time basis. This would be a proactive position to create a more business friendly atmosphere and repair the extensive image problem that exists at this time for the city. The phrase "train wreck" would be apt in describing the current relationship between city government and small businesses.

• Creating a loan/ grant program to specifically address the needs of Streetscape affected businesses modelled on the Federal Government Paycheck Protection Program. Businesses considering the downtown area but hesitant to invest would be reassured that Streetscape, while a temporary program (as COVID19 closures were temporary), will not destroy their new business investment. By offering this "incentive" to business owners, the city would be securing long-term small business investments, resulting in higher employment and a successful downtown.

Expresses surprise Letter to the Editor Regarding the recent Special City Council Meeting held Thursday, August 11th. During the meeting, the city Economic Development Manager, Stuart Gilbert, insisted that there is no legal way that the city of Kings Mountain can provide grants to downtown business owners financially impacted by Streetscape. Mr. Gilbert called the idea of giving business owners grant equivalent to "handing out free money". The city has funds to provide grants - the funds collected from downtown property owners to fund a now defunct Main Street Program is one idea on the table. In the last budget presented by the Main Street Manager, there was nearly $120,000 in unspent funds collected from taxpayers.Asfor the idea of a grant program, the Federal Government provided small businesses nationwide with two rounds of Paycheck Protection Loans due to COVID 19. COVID19 was a severe small business interruption factor that may never be repeated. Those loans were simple to apply for, requiring appropriate documentation, but no "bank like" credit score checking or collateral. Those loans were also 100% forgivable with proper documentation. This was all done in complete compliance with the laws of the land. The government was able to put that program together, implement it, take applications and disburse monies in an incredibly short period of time, saving millions of small businesses nationwide from closing forever.From that example, you can see that precedent has been set by nonother than the United States Government to assist small businesses in times of distress. The same government provided each household in the country with two rounds of financial assistance. "Free Money" that I'm sure our elected officials accepted from theSmallgovernment.businesses in Kings Mountain have been suffering for 2 years with COVID19 issues. The City of Kings Mountain has added to the financial distress with a project that has overrun its promised timeline, been understaffed, mismanaged, and will require extensive repairs to correct mistakes. The downtown businesses have suffered greatly from the city's inattention. Of the restaurant & retail businesses listed on the local downtown walking map given to our customers, there are 8 businesses that have closed this year. At the meeting on the 15th, Assistant City Manager Nick Hendricks stated that a total of nearly 6 million dollars will be spent in Streetscape money for the downtown area. For whom? The two main views of Kings Mountain downtown, as seen by tourists, are Battleground and Railroad Ave. As of today, vacancies on those two streets downtown are 70%. Vacancy rates overall are embarrassing.Theelected officials and managers paid with our tax monies do not support a downtown area a block from their offices. One such manager could not name a business that has existed for over two years and is part of the streetscape plan.What would support from city hall look like you might Proactivelyask? visiting all of the shops, restaurants and establishments to make contact with shop owners and employees.

• If there are no sidewalks, drive cautiously. Be more alert to the possibility of children walking in the road.•Slow down and prepare to stop whenever you see yellow school bus lights flashing.

At the end of the meeting, Stella Putnam of Neisler Brothers, Inc. said, “I’m one if the lucky ones, I’m not trying to sell anything to anybody in my businesses. I do frequent all these businesses. Before Streetscape, I bet I walked to Beth Allen’s three or four times a week. Now it’s a pain for me to do. There is no question, you need to do something to help them financially. You owe it to these people to help them.” Councilman Jimmy West pointed out, “If we shut down Mountain Street, Mountain Holiday will close their doors. We need to look out for all our business owners and have compassion for them. If Mountain Street and Cherokee Street are closed simultaneously, I am not in favor of that. We have promised these people three different times that we would work with them, and then done absolutely nothing.”While no decision was made during this special meeting, citizens expressed support for downtown business owners to city council. A project that started in early April has exceeded its schedule of July 31, with no firm completion date for Phase 2A. In the meantime, these businesses remain open, ready to serve customers, and welcome your support.

•Never walk behind the bus.•If you are walking beside the bus, walk at least three giant steps away. •Use the handrail when entering and exiting the bus. Take extra precautions to make sure that clothing with drawstrings and book bags do not get caught in the handrail or door. •Never stop to pick something up that you have dropped when a bus is stopped. Tell the bus driver or wait until the bus has driven off to avoid not being seen by the driver.

I don’t want any free money. I am not asking for anything but for you to get on with it and get it over with, so I can go back to be the business I was before this Davidstarted.”Stonealso spoke, saying businesses don’t want free money. “We are asking you to invest to ensure businesspeople are in buildings when Streetscape is done. That’s what we want. Not free money, which was a bad representation by the Economic Development Director to say that people want a free handStoneout.”also shared that he saw a woman carrying a stroller to the door of UnCommon Artisans, across the space missing sidewalk, just to patronize that shop. He asked, “How do you think this (situation) impacts that business owner?”

Motorists •Remember that children are unpredictable in their actions. Take extreme caution when traveling in a school zone.

• Never pass a school bus when there are flashing red lights and the stop arm is extended. This is a sign that children are getting on or off the bus. Motorists must wait until the red lights stop flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and the bus is moving before they can start driving again.•Learn and obey the school bus laws in North Carolina.

Citizen Patrick Gilbert does not own a business downtown but spoke to city council in support of the shop owners saying, “I’ve made good friends in downtown and spend between $1,300 - $1,700 per month to support them. I do my part to help these people. I am doing my part, so you (the city) do your part.”

SCHOOL From Page 8A Student •Always arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.•While the bus is approaching make sure to stand at least three giant steps away from the curb, wait until the bus has come to a complete stop, the door opens, and the bus driver says that it’s OK to board.•Always walk on the sidewalk when preparing to cross the street near a bus. Make eye contact with the driver so that you are sure he or she sees you.

For the 2022 Fall Semester at Gardner-Webb, the student population includes 108 international students, the highest on record. According to the Office of International Student Services, they represent 45 countries on six continents. With a history of recruiting student-athletes from around the world, the University’s Division I athletics program is now home to 87 internationals. For student-athletes, the most popular majors are business administration and management, while divinity, ministry and missions appeal to non-student-athletes. Other popular degree programs for both undergraduate and graduate international students are exercise science and kinesiology, criminal justice, math, biology, divinity, missions, and mental health counseling. These students are choosing Gardner-Webb’s vibrant campus community from places like Ireland, Iceland and Italy, as well as Australia, Burma and China. The countries with the most students are France (10), Canada (9) and Brazil (7). “I don’t know if anyone who was part of the founding of our institution some 117 years ago could have imagined us growing into a university with this kind of global reach,” observed Gardner-Webb President William Downs. “Forty-five foreign countries represented in our college town…that is truly astounding! A strong 21st century university will connect local students with the world, and it will attract the rest of the world to its campus. We are achieving both goals right now and with impressive results, and GWU graduates heading into a global economy will be that much better prepared for success because of Gardner-Webb’sit.”

From Page 2A range (e.g., airborne) transmission of monkeypox has not been reported. CDC currently recommends that people infected with monkeypox wear a mask if they must be around others in their homes if close, face-toface contact is likely. In a healthcare setting, a patient with suspected or confirmed monkeypox infection should be placed in a single-person room; special air handling is not required. Any procedures likely to spread oral secretions (such as intubation and extubation) should be performed in an airborne infection isolation room.

Director of Diversity and Inclusion Lawrence Brinson noted that the presence of international students can create a wealth of authentic opportunities for cultural engagement and enrichment. “In today’s globalized economy, educational and social interaction with students from around the world can provide Gardner-Webb students with real world academic and career benefits,” Brinson affirmed. “Living and learning side-by-side with students from around the world helps all of us learn to avoid stereotyping and form more informed opinions. It gives us a better understanding of international issues and provides new opportunities for unique cross-cultural experiences.”Coordinator of International Student Services Tina Earls enjoys getting to know the students and helping them adapt to campus life. She also serves as Gardner-Webb's Principal Designated School Official (PDSO), responsible for managing government compliance of student Visas. “When an international student comes in, we strive to encourage them throughout their education levels and as they become alumni,” she shared. “They are appreciative of all we do, and they are happy here. Gardner-Webb is not new to the international market nor to the global competition of international recruitment and continues to provide quality academics and social experiences. Most non-athletes choose GWU by word-ofmouth recommendations from a church or missions field or former or current students.”

The season for fresh fruits and vegetables grown right in the backyard is upon us. Warm weather breathes life into fresh berries, tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, and many other delectable fruits and vegetables.Home gardens can be supplemented with delicious finds from the supermarket or farmer’s market, including melons, corn and more. The bounty of the garden can be made more abundant and fruitful with the addition of the right soil amendments. Compost is a key element of rich, nutritious soil. Scraps from items that have been grown in the garden can then be reused in the production of the compost that feeds that same garden. It’s a continuous circle of garden life. Getting started with compost is relatively easy. Homeowners should choose an outdoor space near the garden but far away from the home so that it won’t be disturbed by kids or animals. Some people opt for an open compost pile, while others choose closed bins to contain the possible smell and to camouflage the compost. A sunny spot will help the compost to develop faster, according to Good

Housekeeping.Thenextstep is to start gathering the scraps and materials that will go into the compost. Better Homes and Gardens suggests keeping a bucket or bin in the kitchen to accumulate kitchen scraps. Here are some kitchen-related items that can go into the compost material:

Chamber after hours at Triple BBB Vineyard on August 23

• Eggshells • Fruit peels • Vegetable peels and scraps•Coffee grounds • Shredded newspaper In addition to these materials, grass and plant clippings, dry leaves, bark chips, straw, and sawdust from untreated wood can go into the pile. Avoid diseased plants, anything with animal fats, dairy products, and pet feces. A low-maintenance pile has an equal amount of brown and green plant matter in the compost plus moisture to keep the bacteria growing and eating at the right rate. Aerating the compost occasionally, or turning the bin when possible, will allow the compost to blend and work together. Compost will take a few months to form completely, says the Planet Natural Research Center. The finished product will resemble a dark, crumbly soil that smells like fresh earth. Compost will not only add nutrients to garden soil, but also it can help insulate plants and may prevent some weed growth. It is a good idea to start a compost pile as a free source of nutrition for plants and a method to reduce food waste in an environmentally sound way.

Some communities provide fitness facilities, swimming pools, tennis courts and more, along with dozens of organized activities, classes and social events. Other communities are much simpler and more laid back with very limited amenities and structured activities. You’ll want to choose a community that has the types of people, facilities, activities and vibe that appeals to you. Will we like the surrounding area? Will the area around your prospective community serve your needs now and in the future? Ideally, this means having easy access to good doctors and hospitals, and a local airport if you plan to travel much. You’ll also want to research how far you’ll be from essential services like grocery stores, banks and pharmacies, as well as dining, shopping, and recreational attractions. Schedule a Visit Once you’ve narrowed your choices, call to make an appointment and visit them. Be sure to allow plenty of time at each community and, if possible, go back to your favorites more than once. Also be sure to ask questions while you are visiting, particularly about the community rules. Some developments will let you stay overnight in a model home for a few nights to get a feel of what it would be like to live there. While you are there, try the amenities and activities, and speak with as many residents as you can. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Once you find a few you like, here are some questions to ask yourself that can help you choose: What’s our budget? To help you choose the right active adult community you’ll first need to determine what you can afford. Consider the home’s purchase price, whether you’ll need a mortgage, how much the property taxes and insurance are, and how much the homeowners’ association or community fees are. These fees, which typically run a few hundred dollars per month, go toward lawn care and possibly snow removal, as well as community areas like a clubhouse or pool. However, some communities may require additional memberships or fees for golf, tennis, classes, or other activities.

By JIMEditorMILLER Dear Savvy Senior, What tips can you recommend for choosing a good active adult housing community? My husband and I, who recently retired, are planning to relocate to an area closer to our grandkids and are interested in buying a house in an age-restricted 55-plus housing community. Active Retirees Dear Active, If you’re contemplating moving into an age-restricted community, finding one that’s right for you takes some legwork. While active adult communities generally offer the opportunity for a lower-maintenance lifestyle around similar aged people, they vary enormously. Here’s what you should know. Today’s active adult communities come in all shapes, sizes and price ranges, ranging from small city-based apartment complexes, to single-family homes, to sprawling resort-style locations situated on a gated golf course. Most are owned by their occupants, but a growing number are rentals. Typically, at least one occupant of each property must be at least 55. It’s also important to understand that 55plus active adult communities are not the same as retirement or independent living communities, which are primarily designed for older seniors in their 70s and 80s. Active adult communities do not typically include meals or have a central dining area, but many of them do offer a range of recreational amenities and you locate and research active adult communities in the areas you’re interested in, the best resource is 55places. com. This is a comprehensive website that provides ratings, reviews and information on activities and amenities for thousands of communities across the country.

They didn’t have a coach. Their uniforms were hand me downs from Trinity College (now Duke University) and their shoes were Boy Scout shoes which a local cobbler attached rubber cleats to for 50 cents a pair. The year was 1922 and Kings Mountain High School was playing football for the firstMemberstime. of that first team – and most others through the 1940’s – are no longer with us but in previous stories in the Herald they told about how the sport KMHSbegan.was already playing baseball, which began in the teens, and basketball which began in 1921, but not many people in town considered fielding a football team until two students from Davidson College came to the Central School one day to talk to the high school boys about organizing a team. Eighteen young men decided they wanted to give it a try. They included Joe Lee Woodward, Herman Hayes, Hoyt Matthews, Tom Fulton, Jake Hord, Forrest Houser, Howard Pursley, Lloyd Ormand, Tom Saunders, Hoyle McDaniel, Charlie Saunders, Clemonsee Boone, J.M. McGinnis, Plato Goforth, Odell McGinnis, Fred Plonk, Royce Green and Lawrence Lovell. The exact records of the earlier KMHS teams aren’t really known since very few games were reported to news media, but some scores were found in papers over the years. Often a newspaper headline would just say, “the Kings Mountain boys played football Friday.” In a 1974 interview in the Kings Mountain Mirror-Herald, Joe Lee Woodward who also played on the first Mountaineer basketball team the year before, said the Mountaineer offense was a “box formation,” similar to what was later a single wing. The center simply hiked the ball to the back that was going to run with it. Passing was non-existent because footballs were basicallyGamesround.were played on the old baseball field located near what is now the American Legion, and later at City Stadium where the Mountaineers played until Gamble Stadium was built in 1967. The Mountaineers’ best record during the 1920s came in 1926 when they finished 6-0-4. The late Plato Goforth, a member of the team, remembered that they played in a state tournament and came within one game of the championship. He recalled that the Mountaineers and Shelby fought to a scoreless tie in the first game and KM won a draw to advance. The next week the Mountaineers and Asheville battled to a scoreless tie and Asheville won the draw and went on to defeat Charlotte for the state championship.Justweeks before his death earlier this year, Dr. George Plonk recalled playing football at KMHS in the mid-thirties.“Weused to play tackle football in the back yard with no equipment,” he noted. “I’d go to games and see the team come out with all that equipment on and I said ‘I can do that.’ I went out and they issued me a uniform. The first game I played Pete Hullender was our right end. He was 160 pounds and six feet tall. He got cleated above the eye. Blood was pouring down. The coach said ‘alright Plonk, get in there.’ I had never played in a real game but I could outrun everybody. They called me Race Horse Plonk. I really didn’t know what to do. Ray Barber was the other end and he was a lot bigger than I was. He said ‘take a step backward and go around end.’ They tackled me for a two yard loss,” but after he got the hang of it he gained a lot of “Jakeyards.Early was our best player, “Plonk said. “He played quarterback. When I first went out for baseball I thought ‘nobody will try out for catcher’ but I didn’t know Jake was the catcher. I was not very big and Jake was very strong. He signed with the Senators and I said ‘well, maybe I will get to catch my senior year.’ Jake and John Neill, who was a guard, were a lot bigger and a lot better thanTheme.”next year, Plonk recalled, the Mountaineers’ regular end dropped out of school and he became a starter.“About halfway through the season we were playing Gastonia and they were supposed to win big. We beat them. I was fast and they started calling me Race Horse. We kicked off to them and a guy got loose and was running for a touchdown and I tackled him on the 10 yard line.”C.S. Plonk (George’s father) never wanted him to play football because he needed him to work on the farm and the next season George was injured. “That really bothered Dad,” he said. “He always said ‘there’s nothing to that old ball game. Now you’re crippled up and can’t work.’ I thought ‘I’m going to play now if it kills me.’Plonk” said his most memorable game was when Jake Early scored on a sneak to beat Shelby 6-0. “Shelby had a bigger team and they were favored,” he noted. “Jake had a protruding sternum and if he got hit on it would knock him out. He’d just grab his belt and pull it up and down ‘til he got over it. His senior year he signed with the Washington Senators. Before that nobody had a chance to beat Jake out, so I went out for catcher and was the starting catcher my senior year.

“Jake was a great catcher. He didn’t have to stand and drop back. He had such a strong arm he’d just shoot the ball to throw people out.” Plonk was offered a football scholarship by Lenoir Rhyne but knew that he wanted to go into medicine. “I thought I had the skills to make the team but I also knew I was going to have to study a lot,” he said. “I thought I’d be tied up with football, so I decided to go to Carolina and studyThepre-med.”Mountaineers’ best team in the 1930s came in 1938 when they went 6-3. Crowell Little, who was an All-Southern quarterback at UNC, was the coach but left after that school year to take a job at Davidson College.

Kings Mountain High’s football program in the 1950s and ‘60s was one of the best in North Carolina. What Shu Carlton began in the late 1940s continued the next decade except for a couple of years when Carlton was called back into the Marines because of the Korean War. He had coached the Mountaineers to a 4-4-2 mark in ’50 and former UNC All-American Art Weiner came to town and led the Mountaineers to a 4-4-1 record in ’51. When Carlton returned the next season he learned that the school had dropped the JV program he had begun in the late 1940s and he found himself rebuilding again. He did have a talented back in the previous year’s leading rusher Jimmy Kimmel but Kimmel went down to injury early in the season and the Mountaineers finished with a 1-8Theyrecord.were soon back on track as Carlton’s final four teams (1953-1956) turned out the best records in school history up to that point.In summer practice in ’53 Carlton dumped the old single-wing offense and put in a T-formation. The Mountaineers’ schedule had been trimmed to eight regular season games but those were enough for Carlton to see that the T was the right offense. The key to the new formation was the quarterback, and Carlton had a good one in Ollie Harris Jr. The Mountaineers finished 5-3 with Harris hitting 33 of 70 passes for 451 of the Mountaineers’ 1,856 yards total offense. Carlton often said ’53 was the “turning point” for Kings Mountain football.In’54 the offense was in high gear and finished 7-2-1 in the newly-organized Southwestern Conference as Western teams were broken into the Northwestern and Southwestern group and Piedmont teams became the North and South Piedmont conferences. The team was led offensively by one of the school’s all-time great quarterbacks, George Harris, who later quarterbacked the Duke Blue Devils and is planning on being at the Mountaineers’ 100year celebration of football. The late Mearl Valentine, who was a lifelong supporter of Kings Mountain sports, was the team’s top rusher and the other backfield stars were Earl Marlowe and Charlie Smith, the latter still on the sidelines every Friday night taking pictures of KM’s stars of today. Ken Cloninger, whose son Jeff is now a KM assistant coach, was a bruising lineman and he and teammate Dewitt Blanton played in the EastWest Optimist Bowl game in Asheville and along with Coach Carlton led the East team to Georgevictory.Harris was still around in ’55 and quarterbacked the Mountaineers to their first-ever SWC championship with a 9-0-1 record. A play Harris made to break a scoreless tie with Lincolnton is still remembered today by the senior generation. At the KM 40 yard line, Harris faked a handoff to running back Ken Baity up the middle, laid the ball on his hip and bootlegged around end for what should have been a touchdown. Harris had actually faked out everyone in the stadium including the referees, who blew the play dead after the Lincolnton defense tackled Baity. Every KM fan in the stadium was irate, especially Coach Carlton who would have wrung the refs’ necks had Lincolnton won the game. But KM rebounded from the call and blew out the Wolves 27-7. Harris would go on to run and pass for well over 1,000 yards and was intercepted justWithtwice.most of the stars gone off that ’55 team, Carlton and his crew won the conference as well as the Western Association in 1956. Only 10 lettermen were returning but they were good ones and some good younger players took up the slack. The Mountaineers finished 10-0-1 to give Carlton, who resigned at the end of the school year to take over as head coach at Gastonia Ashley (now Ashbrook), a 43-26-8 coaching mark in his eight years here. He would go on to compile a 158-68-17 careerTherecord.leader of the ’56 team was quarterback John McGinnis. Ken Baity was back as the team’s top running back and became the school’s first 1,000-yard rusher. He later played for the South Carolina Gamecocks.Baity, tackle David Marlowe, end Keith Layton and McGinnis made All-Conference. Baity was All-State and McGinnis played in the East-West game in Greensboro and helped lead the West to victory.Baity returned for his senior year in ’57 and helped the Mountaineers to a 7-3 overall record under new head coach John Gamble. Baity had another 1,000-yard rushing season to become the school’s all-time leading rusher. He was just the second KM player (to Harris) to be selected to the NC Shrine Bowl team. A controversial call in the Shelby game cost the Mountaineers the conference championship as the Lions claimed a 14-13 win at City Stadium. Baity apparently went 65 yards for a touchdown but officials ruled he stepped out of bounds as he went around end. KM fans couldn’t believe it then – and don’t believe it now – that a player with Baity’s talent would step out of bounds running all alone down the sideline. Fans were so outraged that they overturned the officials’ car after the game. The 1960 season went much the same way. In what would turn out to be the championship game, a controversial call helped Lincolnton defeat the Mountaineers 7-0. But players on that team will tell you today the score should have been 14-7 in favor of the Mountaineers and will also recall that game film showed Wally Harris and Punch Parker going into the end zone but the ball was marked short. Parker later scored on a 96-yard catch and run but it was also called back because officials said his forward motion had been stopped.TheMountaineers were winners in every year of Gamble’s tenure until his last one, 1961. He had been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig disease and had to coach from a wheelchair. Assistant Bill Bates took over head coaching duties the following year. Bates and assistants Bill Cashion, Bob Hussey and Don Parker got the Mountaineers back to their winning ways quickly. Their best two teams at KM – ’63 and ’64 – featured some of the best athletes in school history.Mike Huffstickler was the go-to back on the ’63 team that shared the conference championship with Shelby with a 9-0-1 record. Those two teams fought to a 7-7 tie at City Stadium and in those days only the first place team went to the WNCHSAA playoffs. Ties still went into the record book but the winner of the sudden death advanced. KM got the ball first and Hubert McGinnis kicked a field goal. Shelby got the ball and was facing fourth and goal from the 15 yard line and threw a touchdown pass.

The stars came out in the fifties and sixties

The Kings Mountain Touchdown Club is a nonprofit organization founded to promote KMHS athletics. We have provided uniforms, transportation, and equipment. Since 2015, we built a new fieldhouse, refurbished the weight room, and built a new concession stand and restroom facility. A $2.8 million project renovated the football field, track, tennis fieldhouse, and courts. We invite everyone to join the Touchdown Club to help pay off the debt. So that we can do even more!

Kings Mountain didn’t win a championship – they finished in a three-way tie for first one year – but the1970s and ‘80s produced a lot of outstanding players that went on to play college and a two that played in the NFL.The Mountaineers did open and close the seventies with good teams. Bill Bates’ final team in ’70 went 7-3 for his best record since the championship ’64 season. They had a good shot at winning their first eight games but were upset at East Rutherford 12-9. The Mountaineers, won all five of their home games but dropped late road contests to powerful South Point and Shelby teams. The Mountaineers’ leading rusher was David Bolin, who would later be head coach at Hunter Huss, and local dentist Geeper Howard was the quarterback. Linebacker John Grier was the leader of the defense. Bob Jones, who had turned out some outstanding teams at Lowell Holbrook and was head JV coach and varsity assistant for a year under Shu Carlton at Ashbrook after Holbrook and Ashley consolidated to form Ashbrook, took the KMHS head job in ’71. His first team broke even at 4-4-2 but it did tie Jones’ alma mater and KM’s biggest rival, Shelby. The game took three nights to complete, starting on a Friday and ending on Monday. A strong thunderstorm knocked out the lights at Gamble Stadium at halftime with the score tied at 8-all. Neither team scored in Monday’s second half. The above-mentioned David Bolin moved from running back to quarterback in ’72 and the Mountaineers improved to 6-4 and Grier was all-conference for the second straight season. The Mountaineers had a good shot at going 9-1 but had some late game losses, including 12-7 to RS Central in the game that was billed “the golden anniversary” of KM football. Center-linebacker Mark George was selected to play in the prestigious East-West All-Star game.Coach Jones put one of his best teams on the field in 1974 when the Mountaineers went 7-2-1. Chris Johnson, who went on to a fabulous career at Gardner-Webb, was very versatile and could play any position. The line featured good talent including center Dale Hartsoe, guard John Yarbro and tackles Carl Roseboro and Reggie Whitmire. David Lancaster, most noted as a power hitter for the Mountaineer baseball team, was an excellent kicker and drilled extra points and field goals right through the middle of the uprights.With a 7-1-1 record heading into their last game, the Mountaineers needed to beat Burns for their first the Mountaineers 26-7 giving second place and the playoff spot to Shelby. The Bulldogs upset the Mountaineers again the next season, marching 80 yards in the final three minutes to winThe13-7.1976 and ’77 teams also had tremendous talent. The Mountaineers went 8-2 in ’76 and had most of their starters returning but injuries to key personnel caused a 5-5 season the next year. Any good team has to have blocking, and those teams had an excellent crop in guys like Kelly Land, Tim Spicer, Chuck Gordon, Scott Ellis, Bruce Valentine and others to pave the way for runners like Kenny Bell and William Thompson. Back in those days, Chase had tremendous talent but sophomore David Ray Robinson ran behind the above mentioned line to lead the Mountaineers to an 8-7 victory. Another big win was over the mighty Crest Chargers 20-0 behind the running of Kenny Bell and a punt return by William Thompson. Thompson’s 90-yard kickoff return and Jimmy Hall’s two TD passes blanked North Gaston 20-0 to make KM the only undefeated team in the conference. Late-season losses to Shelby and South and the playoffs. But, in 1979 the Mountaineers fielded one of the best teams in the state under head coach Dan Brooks, who would later help the Clemson Tigers win the national championship. The star of the show was Kevin Mack, who without a doubt was the best running back in school history and later starred on a Clemson team that won the National championship and the NFL Cleveland Browns where he and Earnest Bynum formed the best 1-2 NFL rushing attack with over 1,000 yards each one season. Mack was named Rookie of the Year. KM lost its opening season game against Burns and Coach Dan Brooks put the team through the washer the next week of practice. Their only other loss was a very close 15-12 decision to the South Point Red Raiders who went on to win the state championship. South Point coaches said later that Kings Mountain was the best team theyKMplayed.won everything but the score as Mack and Avery Smith outgained the entire South Point team 295 yards to 143. The Mountaineers led 12-8 late in the game when the Red Raiders’ quarterback Jeff Williams threw a 51-yard alley-oop Perry Fewell. With Mack and Smith chewing up yardage the Mountaineers came right back downfield to the South Point 10 with a first and goal. South Point’s Todd Armstrong intercepted a pass in the end zone to save the game for the Big Red.Mack wasn’t a one-man show, though. In any other year, Smith probably would have received all the accolades Mack did. Both had a lot of teammates to thank for their success, especially offensive linemen like end Tim Leach, tackles Daryl Strong and Scott Crawford, guards Glenn Carroll and Mike Chambers and center DannyThingsWilliams.slacked off in the early ‘80s as the Mountaineers went 3-7 in ’80 and ’81. They rebounded in ’82 with a 6-4 mark in Brooks’ final year. KM kept most games close with their biggest defeat to 4-A power Ashbrook,Curt28-8.Pressley and transfer Tracy Johnson formed one of the best 1-2 running attacks in KMHS history. Pressley went on to play at Gardner-Webb and Johnson played at Clemson and in the NFL. After a 0-2 start, the Mountaineers got their act going with a 21-14 win at East Gaston as Johnson and had 233 yards in 38 carries. The Mountaineers fell to 1-3 the next week in a 9-2 loss to Crest which was in route to one of its five consecutive titles. After that the Mountaineers finished with five straight wins, defeating South Point 14-6, Chase 9-6, North Gaston 20-14, RS Central 28-8 and Shelby 8-0 on an overtime 11-yard pass from Chris Champion to Jay Schronce. A host of starters, including Pressley and Johnson, returned to lead the ’83 team as the first running duo in school history (at that time) to gain over 1,000 yards each. The Mountaineers got off to a great start, winning their first six games, but were stunned two weeks in a row by RS Central 7-0 and Shelby 2-0. The Mountaineers had great ’85 and ’86 seasons under Hicks, going to the state playoffs both years. The ’85 playoff berth came as a surprise because the Mountaineers thought they had been eliminated in a 21-19 loss to a strong South Point team. But a couple days later South Point had to forfeit because of an ineligible player and that sparked the Mountaineers to a state playoff season. It wouldn’t be easy, though, as KM had to come from behind late to edge a very strong East Rutherford team 20-14. A late touchdown pass from Roderick Boyce to Otis Brooks tied the game and Aubrey Hollifield caught a two-point conversion pass in traffic for a 22-20 lead.

After their three-round playoff run to end the 1980s the Kings Mountain Mountaineers went back to a .500 team for the first part of the 1990s as well as the first part of the 2000s. They wouldn’t make another playoff appearance until 1995 when they started a four-year run that included playing for the 3A state championship in ’98.Denny Hicks closed out his head coaching career after the 1994 season with the longest tenure (11 years) of any former coach. Current coach Greg Lloyd will begin his 17th season Friday night.During his five years in Kings Mountain, Ron Massey’s teams compiled a 47-15-4 overall record. He was blessed with incredible talent, especially on the ’96, ’97 and ’98 teams that included numerous players that went on to play college ball including big offensive tackle Kareem Marshall who was a starter on a University of Georgia team that won the Southeastern Conference championship and Shrine Bowl standout Mariko Feemster who played his freshman year at the University of North Carolina before being diagnosed with Massey’sALS.first team in ’95 didn’t win the conference but qualified for the playoffs with a 7-3 regular season record. The Mountaineers made a long firstround trip up the mountain on a very cold night and fell to a strong Enka eleven, 1714.The Mountaineers shared the conference title in ’96 with an overall 9-0-1 regular season record but again lost their first round playoff game to Canton Pisgah, 35-21 at Gamble Stadium. The tie was 28-28 with Crest at Gamble Stadium that saw the eventual 4A state championship Chargers come from behind late in the fourth quarter for a touchdown and two-point conversion.Oneof the Mountaineers’ all-time great memories came that season when they blew out the Shelby Lions 42-0 in a match-up for the Southwestern Conference championship. Shelby’s ace back Norris Hopper had been dismissed from the team earlier in the week and the Lions were simply no match for the Mountaineers.CoreyJones and Marcus Smith, just the second Mountaineer running duo to each gain over 1,000 yards in the same season, ran all over the Shelby defense. The defense, led by linebacker Boyd Mason, held the Lions to just 74 yards total offense. The Mountaineers keyed on Shelby’s #1 runner Marcus Tate and limited him to just 24 yards on 10 carries. Jones and Smith combined for 257 yards for the Mountaineers. The Mountaineers went 7-4 during the regular season of ’97 and appeared to have the championship in hand before being upset by East Rutherford in the eighth game. Burns defeated East on the final regular season night resulting in a conference

Kings Mountain High’s football fortunes have gone to a new level in the past 15 years, especially the last eight when the Mountaineers have averaged over 10 wins a Whatseasonwas a break-even season for Coach Greg Lloyd in his first year with the Mountaineers in 2007 ended with a 5-7 mark when both the Mountaineers and Hunter Huss each had an ineligible player on the field and the official result became a loss for both teams.But, Lloyd and his staff turned the tables in 2008 bringing the Mountaineers their first conference championship since Ron Massey’s 1998 team and putting them in the battle for the state 3A championship.The Mountaineers defeated the Huskies 32-18 in the season opener but then dropped three close games to South Point 21-14, Forestview 21-20 and Crest 7-2.Led by great blocking, incredible running and passing by quarterback Michael Roberts and a good running back in Joe Chambers the ’08 Mountaineers finished the regular season with six straight wins and then upset three favored playoff opponents before falling to Massey’s AL Brown team 30-14 in the Western Championship game at Gamble Stadium. “We had a lot of good senior players,” Coach Lloyd noted recently. “Roberts at quarterback, Thomas James on the line and Joe Chambers at running back were our leaders. We had a really experienced team. “Roberts was just a great player. He was a dual threat and was a winner. He carried the team. I have always been proud of that team.” The Mountaineers completed their regular season with consecutive wins over a good Parkwood team 16-0, East Gaston 14-0, Chase 49-14, Shelby 2110, East Rutherford 27-12, a very strong RS Central team 28-21 and Burns 4028.All of their opponents in the playoffs were ranked higher than the Mountaineers. They really opened the eyes of every football follower in the state when they man-handled the strong Hickory Tornadoes 24-7 in the first round but that game was scoreless until late in the third quarter. Hickory’s defense did a great job in toning down Chambers but they couldn’t do a thing with Roberts who rushed and scrambled for 135 yards. Ed Blackburn’s 29-yard field goal with just three minutes remaining in the third quarter broke the scoreless tie and the Mountaineers put it away in the two victories were possibly two of the most exciting in Mountaineer football history. They defeated a powerful Mooresville team 41-34 in three overtimes at Gamble Stadium. The very next week they faced Anson County in what may well be KM fans’ biggest nail-biter of all time. The game went back and forth all night long with the two teams combining for over 1,100 yards of offense.The Mountaineers had to come from 10 points down to force the OT against Mooresville. The Mountaineers clinched the win when defensive tackle Jiris Toney jarred the ball away from Mooresville’s star running back Jshaun Pinkston on a first and goal at the KM seven yard line. The ball popped right into the hands of KM safety Josh Haraskiewicz to end theThegame.Anson County game switched hands all night long, with KM scoring and Anson County answering every time. With just 22 seconds remaining, Anson scored to make it 56-55, KM, and the Bearcats decided to go for the win with a two-point conversion. KM sophomore defensive back Matt Young cut the legs out from under Anson’s halfback Patrick Polk at the one-foot line. Anson was forced to attempt an onside kick to get the ball back but KM’s JT Putnam pounced on it to clinch the victory. That must have been Roberts’ best game of his many great games in his four years as a varsity starter. He finished with at what that time was a school record 295 yards passing and 152 yards rushing. He was responsible for six of KM’s eight touchdowns, running for two and passing for four. Most of KM’s big plays were a result of Roberts scrambling to make something out of nothing, including two spectacular running passes of 30 and 37 yards to Jacoby Giles for touchdowns. Giles’ second TD catch, with just 37 seconds left, turned out to be the winning touchdown. The bad thing about that great victory was that both Roberts and Chambers were injured and that cost the Mountaineers in their season-ending loss to Kannapolis the next week. The Mountaineers tried to keep those injuries secret but it didn’t take Kannapolis Coach Ron Massey long to figure out that Roberts was not his usual self. So, after a close beginning the Wonders rolled to victory and into a state championshipLosingberth. so many stars off that talented team, the Mountaineers slacked off in 2009 to a 4-7 record but they were still competitive. Many of those losses – including a 20-14 double-overtime loss to Hickory, a 21-6 loss to South Point, 17-10 to Shelby, 20-17 in overtime to Huss and a 24-17 loss to Forestview could have gone either way.They rebounded big in 2010 with a 7-5 overall record that included a 20-17 win over Shelby, 16-13 win over a very good Hunter Huss team and a 50-28 win over Forestview. They lost close games to Kannapolis 35-32 and South Point 24-21 in OT. The 2011 team went 6-7 and again suffered several close defeats, including a 25-15 loss to Weddington that was broken open late, a 24-21 loss to Shelby, 37-29 to Crest and 21-12 to Forestview. The Mountaineers got a measure of revenge against the Jaguars, though, as they met the very next week in the first round of the state playoffs and the Mountaineers mauled them 43-13 before being eliminated the nest week by Crest.They missed the playoffs the next two seasons but in 2014 began a run that is still going today. They finished 8-5 and shared the conference lead much of the year but lost to Crest 35-7 late in the season. They made it back to the state playoffs but fell to West Henderson 41-27 in the opening round. Beginning in 2015, the Mountaineers have averaged double-digit wins every year except in the COVID season of spring ’21 when teams were limited to eight regular season games. The Mountaineers won the Big South and ran the table during the regular season with an 8-0 record but dropped their first playoff game to finish 8-1. The ’15 season included some very impressive wins as the Mountaineers kept their side of the scoreboard lit with numbers. They opened the season with five straight wins before falling to Shelby 34-20 and a couple weeks later to Crest 48-14. They won their last three regular season games and first three playoff games to finish 12-3. “We slacked off for a while but since ‘2014 we’ve put a good team on the field every year,” Lloyd noted. “Over the last eight years we’ve been in double digits except for that COVID year and we made it to the state semi-finals in ’15, ’18 and ’19. And, with a very young team we were in double digit wins in 1921.” Lloyd is, by far, the winningest coach in KM football history with a 120-71 mark that includes an 82-24 record over the past eight years.Lloyd said the 2017 team was one of his favorites, calling it “very special.” “We were fortunate to have a really good quarterback in Kaylon Wade, who could run and throw, and very fortunate to have a really good running back in Ricaylen Mack. We also had some very good pass receivers in Kobe Paysour and Quintin Davidson and some great defensive players like Day Day Wilson and Javari Rice Wilson. And, a lot of other really good players. Our only losses were in overtime to Shelby in the regular season and Jay M. Robinson in the playoffs. That was a very goodWithteam.many players back, the Mountaineers were very strong again in ’18. “We didn’t win the conference but we made it to the semi-finals of the state tournament,” he recalled. “We had a great win over the #1 seed, Northwest Cabarrus which was undefeated and also a great win against a very good Statesville team that was its conference champion.” He said the most exciting game during his tenure was the 2019 state semi-finals game at Charlotte Catholic when the Mountaineers fell in seven overtimes, tying a NCHSAA record for the longest overtime game ever. “We have made a lot of good memories over the last several years,” he said. “We’ve had excellent players and it has been a lot of fun. Beating Shelby 42-17 in 2019 was one of the great games along with the 2020 season when we beat them at Shelby when Tykel Smith fell on a fumble in the end zone. That was very exciting.“We’ve had a lot of exciting games for sure, and our fan support has really been special. Our fans have been behind us in every game since I’ve been here. They always have good words to say. We have excellent fans, cheerleaders and bands. Kings Mountain is a very special place.” Mountaineers have gone to a new level under Lloyd Kobe Paysour, now a wide receiver for the North Carolina Tar Heels, was the Mountaineers’ second All-American his sophomore year at KMHS.

70S AND 80S From Page 3B and took on arch rival Shelby the next week. The Lions had beaten them 10-0 during the regular season but this time they couldn’t budge the tough KM defense. The Mountaineers drove 59 yards on their first possession to take a 7-0 lead on a oneyard run by Sam Smith and the score stood the rest of allowed the Mountaineers to host their first playoff game ever at Gamble Stadium. An allday rain soaked the turf and both teams went to a running game. Visiting Brevard had its only good drive of the night but the KM defense held them to a field goal that stood. KM had potential scoring drives stopped at the 24 and 21 yardInlines.alast ditch effort in the fourth quarter, KM took over at its own 43. Tony Boyce hit Jerry Jordan with a pass to the Brevard 42, and then Edwin Sherer caught another for a first down at the 18. A face mask penalty against Brevard made it first and goal at the 11with 58 seconds left. Boyce went to the air again but a pass intended hit Sherer in the end zone wasTheintercepted.1986KM eleven gave the home folks and exciting season as well. The Mountaineers would share the conference championship with Shelby and East Rutherford and went deep in the playoffs again. Many of the ’85 stars were back, including Jerry Jordan who moved from running back to QB, Shrine Bowl linebacker and SWC Player of the Year Aubrey Hollifield, Rusty Bumgardner and others. KM recovered three Shelby fumbles in a 14-7 victory with two of them resulting in touchdowns. It was the first time since 1934 and ’35 that the Mountaineers beat Shelby two times in a row. The season ended in a threeway tie for first between KM, Shelby and East Rutherford. KM drew Brevard for round one of the playoffs and won 17-14 on a Bumgardner field goal and TD runs of four and three yards by Raynard Roberts. The next week Hicks’ former Swannanoa Owen team, led by future Florida State and NFL quarterback Brad Johnson eliminated the Mountaineers 12-0. Things slacked off the next two seasons but the ’89 team went three rounds in the playoffs after finishing third in the conference behind Crest and Shelby. They started the playoffs with one of their most exciting victories, 37-36 in five overtimes at #1 Smoky Mountain with Daniel Honeycutt kicking the winning 26-yard field goal. The fourth quarter ended 14-all and the first 10-yard OT resulted in the hosts kicking a field goal to go up 17-14 and Honeycutt answering it with a 26-yarder for another tie. In the second OT, KM’s VictorBell scored on a oneyard run and Honeycutt added the PAT but Smoky Mountain tied it again at 24.Neither team scored in the third overtime. In the fourth, McClain scored on a one-yard run and Honeycutt’s PAT missed, making it 30-24. Smoky Mountain answered, but their PAT failedSmokyalso. Mountain got the ball first in the fifth OT and scored but missed the PAT again to make it 3630. Things looked bad for the Mountaineers when three straight passes fell incomplete, but on fourth and 10 Ryan Hollifield hit Darius “NuNu” Ross for a TD and Honeycutt drilled the PAT right through the middle of the uprights for theThewin. Mountaineers returned to Cleveland County for their final two games, a 13-0 win over Burns and a 20-14 loss to Shelby.

1922-1949 From Page 1B During that time only 11 players were selected. Although won-lost records weren’t great during the ‘30s, the Mountaineers produced several great athletes in all three sports. The above-mentioned Jake Early, who was the quarterback of the 1934 and 1935 Mountaineers, went on to a 10-year major league baseball career with the Washington Senators and caught the entire major league all-star game in 1943.Other college players during the 1940s included Jim Gibson and George Allen, who were called the “Touchdown Twins.” Both went on to have good college careers at NC State. Jim Dickey, a lineman who played at Catawba College was drafted by the NFL New York Yankees in 1940. KM’s best team in the 1940s came in 1946 when the Mountaineers went 7-3 under new coach Clyde Canipe. Bill Cashion, who would later be the KM line coach in the 1960s and 1970s, was a bruising fullback and was All-State along with teammates Robert Neill, a tackle, and end Bill Dettmar. One thing that is always needed to build a strong football program is coaching stability and KM did not have that in its first three decades. From 1922 until 1947, the Mountaineers had at least ten coaches and in several of those seasons a coach was not listed on the teams’ rosters. At least six times, the coach stayed just one season.That began to change, though, in 1948 when a young coach right out of Lenoir Rhyne College named Everette L. “Shu” Carlton took charge of the program. A former football player at Duke and LR and a World War II Marine veteran, Carlton not only brought stability to the program but introduced the Mountaineers to the “School of Hard Knocks” and KMHS would soon become one of the best football programs in the state.When he walked into the Central School equipment room the first time, he found out of date equipment and when he walked onto the practice field the first day he found players who weren’t skilled and not all that interested in football.Butthat soon changed. With the help of a small group of diehard fans he organized the first Mountaineer Club and purchased new equipment and would later add grammar school football and a JV program. He had only 26 players on his roster but instilled in them a desire to win and work hard and let them know quickly that if they did not intend to practice and play hard they were not welcome to wear the KM black and gold. The ’48 team won only one game and tied three but Carlton laid the groundwork that would bring a winning 6-4 season in ’49. Other coaches in North Carolina were so impressed that they named him as one of the coaches for the NC Shrine Bowl team and he helped lead the Tar Heels to victory over the South Carolina all-stars.

FIFTIES From Page 2B point. Twenty-six starters returned and the Mountaineers ran the table in the regular season with a 10-0 record. Everyone in the WNCHSAA were predicting a KM-Thomasville fight for the championship but the Mountaineers were upset in the opening round by Hickory 6-0. Pat Murphy again was the top passer around, setting records at both KM and Appalachian State where he was an All-American. He had some good receivers in Jimmy Cloninger who would later play with him at Appalachian, Richard White, Richard Gold and others. Steve Baker was the leading rusher and also a good pass receiver who amassed over 1,200 yards in rushing and receiving in addition to returning kicks. Bill Cashion’s line was outstanding with center Hubert McGinnis, tackles Lyn Cheshire and Glenn Bolin and guards George Plonk and Steve Grigg leading the way. The defense was led by many of the same people up front along with people like Gold and Ronnie Rhea in theThesecondary.Mountaineers continued to be competitive over the next several years but it would be a while before they competed for another conference championship.

We’ll take it as a lesson learned. Everything else was positive. We let them hang around.”The Mountaineers drove 74 yards for a TD on their first possession with Caleb Holland carrying three times for 55 yards, Robert Kendrick with 13 yards in two totes, and Zay Smith 10 on one carry before big defensive lineman AJ Richardson burst through the Monroe defense for a two-yard TD and a 7-0 Monroelead.battled back to tie it 7-all on a 70-yard drive and drove to the KM 18 on its next possession. But a big 8-yard sack by Richardson forced the Red Hawks into a throwing situation and the Mountaineers’ Teddy Jeffries intercepted it. Two sacks by Richardson set KM’s second TD drive in motion from the Monroe 46. It took just four plays to get into the end zone as Lamont Littlejohn hit Jake Lloyd with a seven-yard pass to the 33, and then another to Bryson Brown for the touchdown. Jaden Ellis sent the PAT right through the middle of the uprights for a 14-7’s first turning point came with 3:44 remaining after a 22-yard catch and run by Zay Smith and a 10-yard reception by Ja’Qualyn Sanders gave the Mountaineers a first and goal at the five. With just 1:58 remaining, KM fumbled and Monroe’s Bryce Davis picked it up and ran to the KM nine. Another KM penalty See SEASON, Page 16B
