Widening along I-85 is slated to begin soon

Widening from 321 to just north of Hwy. 273

Drivers traveling between Cleveland, Gaston, and Mecklenburg Counties along Interstate 85 (I-85) will soon benefit from a new $634.8 million road construction project.

The work involves widening I-85 from six to eight lanes, upgrading interchanges, and relocating/replacing roadway and railroad bridges, improving approximately 10 miles of I-85 located between U.S. Highway 321 (Exit 17) in Gaston County and the N.C. Highway 273 interchange (Exit 27) serving Mount Holly. The project is intended to improve traffic flow, enhance driving safety, and ease traffic congestion that traditionally plagues this main travel corridor between Kings Mountain and Charlotte.

The project also calls for adding pedestrian and bike overpasses to connect areas that are divided by the interstate.

This stretch of roadway is well known as a dangerous problem area where heavy traffic patterns merge from Gastonia, Cramerton, Lowell, McAdenville, Belmont, and Mount Holly. Approximately 131,000 vehicles travel this section of I-85 daily and are projected to increase by 40,000 or 50,000 more vehicles by 2045, according to the N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT).

The road expansion is funded under the N.C. Department of Transportation Improvement Program for a total of $634.8 million. This budget includes property acquisition, utility relocation, and construction costs, as well as intersection improvements for N.C. 7/29-74 which are estimated to be $10.4 million.

Costs to widen Interstate 85 in Gaston and Cleveland counties are

offset by $100 million in funding from the U.S. Infrastructure for Rebuilding America grant program. $1.5 billion for improvements and repairs nationwide were provided through the federal program.

Fiber optic cable to support rural broadband access will be installed, along with electric vehicle chargers, along I-85 through Gaston and Cleveland counties to the South Carolina line, N.C. Gov. Roy Cooper’s office announced recently in a news release about the $100 million grant.

The NCDOT started collecting data about the highway improvement project in 2016 and began creating construction concepts in 2017. Public meetings were first held in 2019 and a final public meeting is planned for late Summer or early Fall of 2022. Road construction currently is expected to start in early 2024 and is scheduled for completion in 2030.

Rachael Shoaf selected for Statewide Scholars Program

College nursing student

Rachael Shoaf has been chosen to participate in the Health Education Center (AHEC) Scholars Program.

“I am honored to be chosen for AHEC cohort 5!” she said. “I'm looking forward to building a network with students who have similar goals and getting some extra volunteer opportunities in the community.”

ars Program is not just for nursing students. With each cohort, the program creates a multidisciplinary team of health professionals from across North Carolina. With an emphasis on underrepresented minorities, disadvantaged or rural backgrounds and first-generation college students, the program aims to increase diversity in healthcare professions across the state. It also seeks to increase the number of healthcare professions represented throughout the different regions of North Carolina.

Shoaf, who is a first-generation college graduate, already has a bachelor’s degree in biology from UNCCharlotte. She decided to become a nurse because “I want to be a part of making people’s lives better.” She

considered several nursing programs before choosing CCC. “CCC's program fit my schedule and my budget. Plus, the instructors here are so kind and very, very helpful.”

The AHEC Scholars program includes 40 hours of instruction and 40 hours of clinical work each year. It is co-taught by faculty from across the state and has both statewide and regional components. The program is part of the national AHEC organization and is supported by partners across the state includ-

ing the state’s five medical schools and the North Carolina Community College System.

Shoaf will complete the Scholars program at the same time she graduates from the Associate Degree Nursing program at CCC, but she doesn’t plan to stop there. “My plans after school are to continue my education and become a family nurse practitioner. I'm not sure of which area, but I know I want to work with low-income families.”

Shoaf lives in Kings Mountain.

CCC’s new Advanced Technology Center building named for Speaker Tim Moore

Cleveland Community College cut the ribbon at one of their newest buildings on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2022 welcoming everyone present to the new Speaker Tim Moore Advanced Technology Center.

Speaker Moore was of course present, along with a host of state, local, and college officials, dignitaries and VIPs who came to get a glimpse at the outside and inside of CCC’s latest jewel in their campus’s crown.

The opening remarks were given by Dr. Jason Hurst, President of Cleveland Community College, who gave a brief history of the college as well as a cost amount of the building and its equipment – $17 million ($5 million of which is wrapped up in the equipment inside the classrooms). Paula Vess, spokesperson for CCC, said, “The cost of construction was $12 million; if you include the new equipment purchased it’s about $17 million.”

Dr. Hurst continued, “We are fortunate to have a delegation who serves us well.”

He also thanked everyone present who had a hand in bringing the building project to fruition, noting that, “…six years ago the (CCC) Board approved the building’s construction,” adding that the overall project, “…spans (the tenure of) three (college) presidents.”

Architects for the project were Holland & Hamrick, represented at

the event by Mr. Patrick McMurry, who Ms. Vess noted was “the principal designer on the project.”

Construction work, Vess noted, was done by Cherryville’s Beam Construction, under the guidance of President Susan Lewis and VP Justin Boheler.

Speaker Moore, for whom the building is named, took the podium, and mentioned Sen. Ted Alexander and Rep. Kelly Hastings for their work and support in seeing the building come to pass.

Bill Turpish, chairman of the CCC Board of Trustees, greeted everyone and said, “This day has been a long time in coming. This (ATC) building is more than just a new building on campus. It pro-

vides an opportunity to change students’ lives by being able to compete in the real world.”

Golden LEAF Foundation President and CEO, Scott Hamilton, said their group always looks at projects that receive their funding as investments.

In addition to those already mentioned, others present at the event and who also spoke briefly were Dr. Bill Carver, President of the N.C. Community College System Office; Mr. Kevin Gordon, Chairman of the Cleveland County Board of Commissioners; and Ms. Kristin Reese, Executive Director of the Cleveland County Economic Development Partner-

Ms. Vess said that classes have already started meeting in the building, so it is now fully open.

She also noted, “The programs housed in the Speaker Tim Moore Advanced Technology Center

are: Electrical Engineering, Automation Engineering, Industrial Systems, Facilities Maintenance, Machining, and Mechanical Drafting.”

Rep. Hastings commented that, “Innovative projects like this one and others in our area and across the state help our efforts to make it possible for people to achieve economic security,” adding, “I am

honored that the people trust me enough to allow me to be part of the team that supports these and other innovative and necessary projects.”

Atrium Health using technology to

Atrium Health Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute’s heart transplant team is using new technology to keep hearts viable while being transported to a waiting heart transplant recipient. The portable technology, called the TransMedics Organ Care System (OCS), expands the amount of time a donated heart can be suitable for transplant, helping make more donated hearts available for those who need them.

“Once a heart is removed from a deceased donor due to cardiac death, the portable system revives the heart and keeps it beating, infusing it with blood from the donor that is supplemented with nutrients and oxygen,” said Dr. Eric Skipper, a cardiothoracic heart transplant surgeon at Atrium Health Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute. “The system also allows us to carefully assess the heart’s functional quality and viability for transplant before we reach the operating room to perform the transplant.”

According to Skipper, OCS eliminates the time restraints that can require turning down a donated heart. Previously, the Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute transplant team could only accept donor hearts from within a 500-mile radius. That’s because there is a 4-hour cold storage limitation for the organ and the travel time between the deceased donor and a patient waiting for a transplant in Charlotte would exceed that. Now, with the use of the new technology, the

donor pool has expanded because the heart can be kept viable for up to eight hours and be received from up to 1,000 miles away. It also allows for the acceptance of higher-risk hearts, including those from older donors and donors who are initially put on life support before withdrawing care, referred to as donation after cardiac death donors.

The first patient to receive a donated heart preserved via the new technology at Atrium Health had their transplant completed recently and is currently recovering in the hospital.

“This was a patient who was potentially looking at a long wait for an organ transplant,” said Skipper. “But because of the ability to utilize this technology, they were able to receive a heart very quickly.”

Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute is the only transplant center in the greater Charlotte region currently using this technology and was identified as an ideal location because it is a high-quality and high-volume transplant center. The transplant team utilized Atrium Health's MedCenter Air to transport the team to and from the donor location.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of this device in April 2022 to preserve hearts for donation after cardiac death. The approval followed results from a multi-center clinical trial comparing the use of the technology to the traditional cold storage method of pre-

serving donated hearts during transport. The study found that using the OCS resulted in 90 patients (of the 180 randomized and transplanted patients) receiving organs that were previously unable to be used prior to this technology. Those recipients had a one-year survival rate of 93.3% compared to an 87.3% one-year survival rate among a control group where OCS was not used.

“We were always limited to accepting organs from donors who suffered immediate brain death,” said Dr, Joseph Mishkin, an advanced heart failure transplant cardiologist at Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute. “We now can accept organs from donors who have suffered an irreversible brain injury but do not meet formal brain death criteria. In these instances, the family has decided to withdraw care. The donor’s organs can now be a life-saving gift for others.”

Across the U.S., more than 3,300 people are on the waiting list for a heart transplant and 95 of those are waiting in North Carolina, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network.

“We face a nationwide shortage of donated organs. I expect this technology to transform the transplant industry, increasing the national donor supply and helping us transplant more patients in need,” said Mishkin.

Beware of TicTok money flipping scam

Money-flipping cons have long been popular on Instagram and Twitter. But as TikTok’s popularity grows, so do the con artists. Watch out for this TikTok scam, which promises to turn a few hundred dollars’ worth of cryptocurrency into thousands in no time at all. BBB is seeing many new reports in BBB Scam Tracker related to this money-flipping scam. Here’s what you need to know.

How the scam works You are scrolling through TikTok when you come across a video showing a pile of cash. The creator says they earned the stack of money in just a few days by investing in cryptocurrency. You may not know much about cryptocurrency, but this “investor” can help you get the same kind of return for a modest fee. Better yet, they have a 100% guarantee that they can triple your money in less than a week.

When you contact the supposed investor, likely through WhatsApp, Telegram, or another messaging app, they will be polite and professional. They will ask you to send money – usually, a few hundred dollars to start – through a digital wallet service like PayPal, Zelle or Venmo. They may even ask you to purchase the cryptocurrency yourself and send it to them. Then, they “invest” your money in the stock market, where it allegedly starts multiplying right away.

As always, the scam isn’t what it seems. When you try to get your money back, the scammer will claim you need to pay fees. At first, these

amounts may seem harmless. Since your few hundred dollars now turned into a few thousand, what’s the harm in spending a couple hundred in fees, right?

Scammers try to extend this con for as long as possible to get as much money as they can. They may ask for fees several times, always promising you will get much more back than what you are spending. If you question them, they may resort to scare tactics, telling you that if you don’t pay, you’ll miss out on the giant return

or that they can take legal action. Unfortunately, any money you send will end up in the scammer’s pockets. You won’t be getting a return on your investment, and you won’t be getting your initial deposit back either. How to avoid money flipping scams:

• Use good judgment. Get-rich-quick schemes and investments that are guaranteed to give you a huge return are nearly always scams. If an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

preserve donor hearts for lifesaving transplants


I can still see it in my minds eye. Over the pulpit of M’Lang Baptist Church were the words from John 4:24, “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” My parents were Southern Baptist missionaries in M’Lang, Cotobato province, Mindanao, Philippines where my father was president of Southern Baptist College. We often attended M’Lang Baptist on

Sunday evenings after worshiping in the morning at one of the smaller churches in the surrounding barrios or out under a tree where people were waiting for the bus to take them to market. We sang, passed out tracts and my father would preach with an interpreter while he was learning the local dialect. The people listened intently ... until the bus pulled up and then service was over whether Daddy had finished his sermon or not.

It was years later before I began to fully understand those words, but I always sensed that they were important. And it seemed they were addressed to me personally as a child of God. I had given my life to Christ when I was six at St. Matthew’s Baptist Church in Louisville, Ky where my father was in seminary before we headed overseas. Of course, as a child, I didn’t understand all the deep spiritual truths of God’s Word. Now, with some 50 years of experience as an ordained minister of the Gospel, I’m still learning. But as I understand the verse, the first use of the word Spirit is capitalized and refers to our invisible God’s nature; His attributes as revealed in Jesus whom the writer

of Hebrews tells us was and is and evermore shall be the “express image” of the Father. (Heb. 1:3) The second use of the word spirit is with a small “s” and refers to our human nature being reconciled with God through our faith in Christ and Christ alone. Then John adds, “and in truth” referring to the Scriptures and to Jesus Himself who in John 14:6 told His disciples that He is “the way, the truth and the life.” Again, we are reminded that we can only be reconciled to the Father through putting our faith in Jesus.

Unfortunately, for many today, worship has been down graded to a spectator sport. Folks go to church to watch the preacher, the choir, the soloists, etc. per-

form. And all too often, the above mentioned folks are doing just that; performing for the congregation as their audience rather than offering their worship to our Audience of One - God. I’m like most folks. I like to be praised and appreciated and I really don’t object to clapping in church when it is appropriate. But often I have been led to worship by a song or the words of a sermon; experiencing the very Presence of God, only to have the time interrupted by folks expressing their gratitude to the performer rather than joining in the blessed moment. Again, I have nothing against expressing appreciation to a worship leader, but God is looking for folks who desire an in depth, personal relationship

with Him. We can acknowledge the one who delivers the message later, but worship calls for us to seek God and His righteousness above all else.

Then true worship leads to service. Check out Romans 12:1-2 and notice that Paul talks of our being a living sacrifice which is our reasonable service and being transformed by the renewing of our minds with the Word, the truth, that we might do the will of God. Perhaps we can agree that true worship is marked not by our critiquing the worship leaders, but by allowing the Holy Spirit to take the message offered and critiquing us. Just might put a difference spin on our “worship” services. SelahThink about it.

Boys and Girls Club makes big impact in KM

The Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland County began after-school care at North Elementary School in Kings Mountain last January as the school system struggled with the rising cost of their own after-school care program known as Kidz Around.

Following a needs assessment of the area and with an initial response of more than 80 children who intend to participate, they opened a new site at North Elementary School in January 2022.

Kings Mountain Unit Director Vinona Muhammad shared her method for success with the twenty-six students who currently participate at North School.

“We begin our day by washing hands and getting a snack. Afterward, students begin their ‘Power Hour,’ during which students complete their homework.” In addition, students practice reading and math skills, partake in STEM activities or learn computer skills. Oneon-one tutoring is provided if needed. North School teacher Sarah Sherrill works with the children on Math. The students further prepare for success in life through sports & fitness activities, character building, life skills, gardening, the arts, and more. Their teen program focuses on every student being on track to

graduate and exploring the option of education, a career, or being a member of the armed forces after graduation.

At North Elementary the program has been highly successful. Final report cards showed 100 percent earned “B or Better” average grades, and 100 percent of students who participated in Healthy Habits and SMART Moves programs passed post-tests.

Now in its second semester, the North Elementary Club has 26 students attending per day. Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland County has added a program site at Bethware Elementary which also has 26 students enrolled. That’s 52 students being served in the Kings Mountain zone!

The mission of Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland County to enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Club provides a safe place to learn and grow, build ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals, have life-enhancing and character development experiences, and develop a feeling of hope and opportunity. Their support the BGCA National Youth Outcome Initiative, which focuses on three life-changing goals for every child: academic success, good character and citizen-

ship, and a healthy lifestyle. Their want to give youth the resources and support they need to do well in school, to make healthy choices, and to become great citizens.

Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland County is a notfor-profit organization. Their annual budget is currently more than $650,000. Revenues consist of support from United Way, private foundations, federal and state grants, corporate and individual donations, and annual fundraisers. A small portion comes from membership dues we charge to participants, but this is not a large part of their funds.

Currently, they charge

$15 per week for children to participate and no child is ever turned away for an inability to pay even that amount. Scholarships are available for those with demonstrated needs. In comparison, it costs our Boys & Girls Club more than $1,200 per child to provide the level of services we offer.

If you would like to help, become a volunteer, make a financial donation, donate program supplies or healthy snacks, serve on an advisory board, or sponsor or participate in a fundraiser. For more information, email

H. Allen Langley, vice chair of the Cleveland Community College Board of Trustees, was recently appointed to serve a four-year term on the North Carolina Association of Community College Trustees Executive Board.

This will be Langley’s first term representing Region 1 on the Executive Board.

“The NCACCT Executive Board is comprised of the most engaged trustees who are strong champions for our 58 community colleges,” said NCACCT President/CEO Julie Woodson. “Allen was elected to serve because of his strong leadership at Cleveland Community College and his commitment to our community colleges statewide.”

In response to his appointment, Langley said, “I’m honored to serve. This is another opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people in North Carolina.”

KMHS volleyball sweeps Crest to take first in Big South

Kings Mountain High’s women’s volleyball team is all alone in first place after an impressive 3-0 victory over Cleveland County rival Crest Thursday in Boiling Springs. The win left the Lady Mountaineers as the only undefeated team in the Big South Conference with a 7-0 record.

Several ladies turned in spectacular performances in the 25-13, 25-22, 25-14

KM visits Forestview Thursday

Two Big South teams will drop out of a tie for first place this week and Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers hope Forestview will be one of them.

While Crest and South Point are also battling to keep a share of the conference lead, the Mountaineers will be on the road for the second straight week Thursday at 7:30 p.m. on the Jaguars’ field in Gastonia. The game has been rescheduled because of predictions for heavy rain Friday.

Thus far, the Mountaineers have taken down Hunter Huss 42-16 and North Gaston 56-0 while the Jaguars have a 20-0 victory over North Gaston and a 24-21 win last week over a good Gastonia Ashbrook eleven. In earlier non-conference games the Mountaineers defeated Shelby, Asheville and Burns while Forestview lost to Burns and East Lincoln but knocked off an always strong Morganton Freedom eleven to begin its three-game winning streak.

The Jaguars have a well-balanced offense led by 6-4 junior quarterback Jaxson Hill who has hit 46 of 86 passes for 405 yards.

Mountaineers rout North Gaston 56-0

His blockers opened a lane wide enough to drive a couple of 18-wheelers through, so Caleb Holland hauled the opening kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown to get the Kings Mountain Mountaineers rolling to a 56-0 victory over the North Gaston Wildcats Friday night in Dallas.

The Mountaineers went on to score six more times to carry a 49-0 lead into halftime. The reserves took over in the second half and tacked on the final TD.

“We got off to a good start,” noted Mountaineer head coach Greg Lloyd.

“We got our nerves out early. We dominated in all three phases of the game. We tackled well, we blocked well and we made plays. Everybody (49 players) got to play and they all did a good job.”

Kings Mountain’s defense, which would hold the Wildcats to minus 22 yards rushing and just 44 passing for the game, held them to minus seven on their first possession. With the Cats taking over at their own 20 after KM’s kickoff went into the end zone, AJ Richardson’s quarterback sack left the hosts facing a fourth and 13 at the NG 19 and their punt only went 22 yards to the 41. After a two yard loss, KM quarterback

Lamont Littlejohn threw a pass to Xzorion Lenair for 18 yards, then hit Ja’Qualyn Sanders for a 25-yard touchdown and Jaden Ellis’ PAT made it 14-0.

The KM defense held the ‘Cats to another three and out and Lenair returned a punt 15 yards to the North 44. A Littlejohn pass to Bryson Brown plus a fiveyard NG penalty put the

Mountaineers at the North 20. Littlejohn hit Sanders with a 12-yard pass and Teddy Jeffries’ run covered the final eight yards for a 21-0 lead.

Aided by a 15-yard penalty against the Mountaineers, the ‘Cats were able to get to the KM 33 yard line but a fourth and eight sack by Eli Lipscomb stopped them at the 42. The Wildcat

defense was able to stop the Mountaineers’ first unit on downs for the only time and forced a punt.

Taking over at the North 30 following a punt, it took KM just three carries by Kendrick – the final one for three yards – to go up 28-0.

A Micah Ward fumble recovery at the North 26 set up a 20-yard pass to Brown, followed by a three-

North had to punt from its own eight and KM took possession at the ‘Cats 41. KM went to a wildcat offense and two runs by Kendrick resulted in a first down at the 23, from which

point Zay Smith took it to the house for a 42-0 lead with 4:52 still left in the half.

“Zay got nicked up a little bit but I think he’ll be ready to go this week,” Lloyd noted.

Simpson, Richardson and Antonio Armstrong sacked the NG quarterback to force a punt which Lenair returned 45 yards for a TD at the 3:08 mark to send the Mountain-

eers into halftime with a 49-0 lead.

North Gaston had just as tough a job moving the ball on the KM backups as it did while the starters were on the field. Facing fourth and two on their own 20 after their longest run of the night - 11 yards by JJ Gordon - the Cats went for the first down but a pass fell incomplete. KM’s Micah Ward covered the distance in two carries and Max Thompson kicked the point-after to end the game.

defensive end Myles Jackson.

“They’re definitely playing their best football of the year so far,” noted Mountaineer head coach Greg Lloyd. “They beat a very good Ashbrook team last week and they’re on a roll with three wins in a row. They have a good running game and their quarterback can throw the ball.

“They’re very tough on their home field,” he said noting that the Jaguars have beaten the Mountaineers several times in the past over there. “We’ll have to play extremely well.”

JV Mountaineers skin ‘Cats 48-16, host Forestview Jaguars Wednesday

A pass interception by Jayden Watkins to stop North Gaston’s game-opening possession at the KM 38 yard line got the Mountaineers going to a 48-16 victory over the Wildcats in Thursday’s junior varsity football game at Gamble Stadium.

The win kept the Mountaineers undefeated with a 4-0 record. They’ll be at home again Wednesday at 7 p.m. against the Forestview Jaguars.

After the INT, it took the Mountaineers just nine plays to score on a one-yard sneak by quarterback Vance Johnson. Josiah Hill had three carries for 36 yards, Tyler McIntyre two for 20 and Dom Davis two for 10 to set up Johnson’s sneak.

Kings Mountain went on to lead 28-0 at the half and 48-8 after three quarters. The final quarter was played with a running clock.

Josiah Hill scored from 15 yards out and Tyler McIntyre ran for a two-point conversion to put the Mountaineers up 14-0.

The Wildcats punted on the second play of the second period. McIntyre got off a 52yard run to the North six and Hill took it in the end zone on the next play. The PAT made it 21-0.

After forcing another punt, the Mountaineers drove 56 yards to score on a threeyard run by McIntyre. With 0:51 left in the half. Johnson’s PAT made it 28-0 at the break. A 17-yard run by Hill and an offside penalty on

North Gaston gave KM a first and goal at the 10, and an offsides penalty on the Wildcats set up McIntyre’s TD.

The Mountaineers recovered an onside kick at their own 48 to start the second half. Hill immediately swept right end for a 22-yard gain, followed by a North personal foul penalty which set the Mountaineers up at the North 27. Two plays later Hill circled right end for a 24 yard TD and Johnson’s PAT made it 35-0.

North Gaston finally got on the board on a nine-yard TD reception by Kameron Dial and a two-point conversion pass. Kings Mountain answered with a Vance Johnson kickoff return to the 45, followed by a Jayden Watkins 55-yard TD run for a 41-8 KM lead.

On North’s first play following the ensuing kickoff, KM recovered a fumble at the North 10 and Kamari Coleman took it in the end zone on the first play from scrimmage to make it 48-8.

With the clock running, North took advantage of a pass interference call on KM, followed by a pass reception of 17 yards by Carter Mason which was followed by a 15-yard late hit penalty on the Mountaineers. KM was flagged for interference again, resulting in a first down at the eight and North’s Isaiah Ewing caught a pass for the TD and another for the two-point conversion to account for the final score.

Pinnacle Classical Academy excels on state tests

For the second year in a row, Pinnacle Classical Academy’s proficiency rate on required state tests exceeded that of all 115 of the state’s K-12 local school districts, according to data released by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.

72.3% of Pinnacle Classical Academy students who took the end-of-grade and end-of-course tests in 202122 attained a score of gradelevel proficient -- a rate much higher than the state average

of 51.4%, and higher even than Chapel Hill-Carborro’s 70.4%.

Economically disadvantaged students at Pinnacle Classical Academy were much more likely to attain a proficient score than students across the state (61.8% vs. 35.1%), as were African-American and Hispanic students.

“Our students’ success on state tests is a tribute to the hard work of our teachers and the phenomenal support of our

parents,” said Dr. Shelly Bullard, the school’s headmaster.

“Our motto is ‘Dare To Soar,’ and these results show that students of different ages and backgrounds all soar at Pinnacle.”

Located in Shelby, Pinnacle Classical Academy is a free K-12 public charter school that is celebrating its tenth anniversary year. The 29 seniors in the class of 2022 were offered a combined $3,088,800 in four-year merit scholarships and awards.

Prevent growth of mold/mildew in colder months

Mold and mildew are not only unsightly, but unhealthy. These fungi grow readily in damp areas and are found in the air breathed both indoors and outside. If left un-

addressed, mold and mildew can threaten the health of a home’s inhabitants.

Mildew is a type of mold that remains relatively flush with the surface it grows on.

essential to address mold before it becomes problematic.

According to Polygon, a drying technology and temporary climate solutions company, the wet season in winter is when molds often grow and expand. Mold can break down the integrity and strength of the surfaces where it grows.

Homeowners can employ the following strategies to prevent mold growth.

• Keep all surfaces clean, using proper cleaning products. Diluted bleach solutions are highly effective at killing microscopic fungi, viruses and bacteria.

• Reduce moisture and humidity by ensuring sufficient air circulation in rooms, particularly bathrooms and kitchens. An exhaust fan will help remove moisture quickly.

• Fabrics covered in mildew that can be laundered should be carefully removed and washed in chlorine bleach and hot water. An oxygen bleach product also can be effective.

• Invest in a dehumidifier

that can reduce moisture in the home in problem areas, such as damp basements or garages.

• Fix plumbing leaks as soon as possible.

• Remove damp leaves and snow from areas around the foundation of the home. Ensure that gutters and downspouts are clear of debris and can shuttle water away from the house effectively.

• Replace cracked or defective mortar in basements.

• Make sure all seals on windows and doors are not compromised and are in good working condition.

• Be sure an HVAC in-line humidifier is adjusted to the right setting and isn’t pumping too much moisture into the heated air; otherwise, the added humidity can contribute to mold.

• If there is a flood or water infiltrates a home in other ways, hire a professional service to help clean and dry the home effectively.

Mold and mildew are problematic, but with diligence they can be kept at bay.

Hints for fall-planted spring and early summer flowering bulbs

North Carolina Extension has the following suggestions in their Horticulture Information Leaflets regarding planting bulb in the fall. These plans set a good schedule for new gardeners and serve as a reminder for seasoned gardeners, as well.

Hints for Fall-Planted Spring and Early Summer Flowering Bulbs

I. Plan in the Spring

Photograph your spring garden to know where your bulbs need to be planted in the fall.

Major Bulbs (Tulips, Hyacinths, and Daffodils)

Flowering season: mid-February to mid-May, depending on local weather and climatic conditions, e.g. coastal plain, piedmont, mountains.

Height range: 6 inches-3 feet

Colors and shapes: A wide selection is available.

Specialty Bulbs (Allium, Crocus, Galanthus, Fritillaria, Scillas, etc.)

Flowering season: mid-February to early July, depending on local weather conditions.

Height range: 3 inches-4 feet Colors: A wide selection is available when all species are used.

II. Purchasing - Fall

The best purchasing criteria for bulbs is that they be firm. Buy early to get the best selections. The size and/or number of flower(s) is directly related to the size of the bulb.

Small nicks and loose skins

(tunic) do not affect development of the bulb. In fact, loose tunics aid in inspecting for diseases and this condition encourages rooting.

Keep cool (50-65°F) before planting. Be certain, however, to keep bulbs away from ripening fruit since they produce ethylene.

III. Planting Techniques - Fall

Where to plant?

Bulb Soils

Good drainage is essential for spring-flowering bulbs! If the soil is mostly clay, mix in an organic amendment such as peatmoss, compost, aged bark, etc., up to 50% in volume, or plant in raised beds. If the soil is mostly sand, add an organic

amendment to increase water and nutrient holding capacity.

Soil pH is critical! The pH of the planting area should be in the 6-7 range. If you need assistance in this area, contact your county extension office.

Spring flowering bulbs can be used in beds (annuals or perennials), borders, ground covers, rock gardens, and wooded areas. For perennialization, avoid planting them near heated basements. These bulbs do best in areas which do not receive direct sunlight during midday, especially during hot summer months.

Some bulb types can be interplanted in the same area based on time of flowering and plant heights, e.g., Crocus,

Muscari, and Allium.

When to plant?

Spring and early summer flowering bulbs must be planted in the fall to develop a root system and satisfy the cold requirement of the bulbs. Wait until soil temperatures are below 60°F (16°C) before planting. In North Carolina, this is usually late October to November.

Excavate the area to be planted. The depths given below are measured from the base of the bulbs to soil level.

Small sized (1 inch in height) bulbs - 5 inches deep

Large sized (2 or more inches in height) bulbs - 8 inches deep

These depths of planting

will help protect the bulbs against frost, animals, and physical damage due to hoeing, etc. Be certain to thoroughly loosen the soil under the bulbs.

Place bulbs in bed; space according to size. Large bulbs should be 3-6 inches

Place bulbs in bed; space according to size. Large bulbs should be 3-6 inches apart, small bulbs 1-2 inches. Interplant, if desired.

Cover bulbs with soil using only one-half of the soil removed. Water thoroughly! Finish covering bulbs with remaining soil.

Cover the bed with 2-3 inches of mulch.

If the fall is dry, water area as needed.

Bulb Fertilization

Fertilization improves bulb performance! Newly planted bulbs will have improved quality. In addition, fertilization encourages bulbs to perennialize; that is, flower for several years without replacing or dividing the bulbs.

There are 2 fertilizer systems available for spring-flowering bulbs! The first system utilizes a single fall application at planting. You can purchase a sulfur-coated, slowrelease complete fertilizer. This should be incorporated into the rooting area at planting, at a rate of 1 rounded tablespoon per square foot.

The second system uses bone meal incorporated in the rooting area at planting time with an application of 8-8-8

(1 level tablespoon) or 10-1010 (1 rounded teaspoon) in the fall, followed by a repeat application of the same fertilizer as soon as you see shoots breaking the ground in the spring.

IV. Spring If fertilization of 8-8-8 or 10-10-10 was used in the fall, repeat the treatment (see III H above).

After flower petals fade or fall off, remove flower organs with scissors or a hand pruner.

Allow foliage to die naturally!

When desired, overplant area with summer annuals.

V. Diseases

If one starts with healthy bulbs, bulb diseases are generally not a problem. However, if the soil becomes diseased, use Terraclor (PCNB) in the bed before planting the bulbs in the fall. The major foliar disease is Botrytis (Fire). This is readily controlled by many available fungicides. Check labels for recommendation.

VI. Insects

The insect that may become a problem is the aphid. It can be readily controlled by available insecticides. Check labels for recommendations.

VII. Splitting or Harvesting Bulbs

This is not generally advised. If bulbs were satisfactory, do not disturb! If unsatisfactory, remove the entire plant as soon as flowers are finished and replant next fall with new bulbs.

Dear Savvy Senior, I am interested in finding some type of travel escort service to help my elderly parents fly across the country. My son is getting married in the fall and would love for my parents to attend, but they’re both in their 80s with health issues, so they’ll need help getting there. Can you direct me to any travel services that can help us?

Looking for Assistance

Dear Looking, Traveling can be challenging under the best circumstances, but for seniors with medical problems, physical limitations or dementia it can be unmanageable. Fortunately, there are a bevy of companies today that provide traveling companion/ escort services to help older adults with the rigors of travel.

A good travel escort can provide your parents with transportation to and from the airport, manage their luggage, navigate and assist them through the airport, sit next to them on the flight, help them to their hotel and much more.

Some companion services even provide personal care like medication management, dressing, bathing and feeding.

And for those with specific medical needs, traveling nurse services are available too.

But be aware that these services aren’t cheap. You will pay for the travel companion’s tickets, the companion’s hotel room if necessary, meals, incidentals and fees for the service. The price to accompany a client on a plane trip within the United States – including the companion fees and travel costs for all parties – can range anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000 or more, depending on the flight transfers and length of the trip.

To locate a travel companion service in your area, search online for “senior travel companion” or “senior travel escort,” followed by your parent’s city or state.

Or use an experienced national service like Flying Companions (, Travel Helpers ( or FirstLight Home Care

(, which has a national network of franchises that provides in-home care for seniors and offers travel companion programs in about 80 percent of their 190 operating territories.

Or, for medical travel companions do a search for “traveling nurse escort” or “medical travel companion,” or checkout Travel Care and Logistics (, which provides registered nurses as escorts.

If, however, your parents don’t require a lot of assistance, or if you can’t afford a travel escort, consider asking a trusted family member or friend that has some air travel experience.

Vet the Service If you’re interested in hiring a travel companion service, there are a number of things you need to check into to ensure you get the right escort.

First, if you parents require personal or medical care while traveling, find out if the escort is trained to manage their

healthcare needs. What sort of medical certifications do they have? (Nursing credentials? C.P.R. training? etc.)

Also, find out how many trips the companion has taken with clients. Have they completed trips with travelers like your parents? How long has the travel service company been in business? What is the company’s safety record? And what sort of insurance does it carry, and what exactly is covered?

Also, get a quote breaking down exactly what you’ll be required to pay, in addition to the companion’s fees. And get a list of two or three clients/references who have used their service and call them.

Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the

Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
