Carl Proper, an officer and K-9 handler with Kings Mountain Police Department, died on September 17 after a month-long battle with COVID-19. He was just 39-years old. He leaves behind a wife and three children. Proper came to KMPD in 2018 and was hired by Chief Jerry Tessneer. Current Chief Lisa Proctor remembers meeting Proper because she was a member of the hiring review board. “I was very impressed when I met Carl. He was very professional and very well spoken. He mentioned that his dream job was to become a K-9 handler for KMPD.” Prior to joining the department, Proper had been a part-time officer for several agencies, including Carolina’s Health Care’s Hospital Police and G4S Allied. He was also a past reserve officer for the town of Cramerton. Chief Proctor describes Officer Proper as outgoing and liked by everyone in

Roseberry, 49, is a resident of Grover who went on Facebook Live last month and threatened to detonate a bomb in a standoff that lasted about five hours and disrupted government and business in the nation’s capital. The next hearing in this case is scheduled for October 8.

COVID by the numbers By Loretta Cozart

As of Friday, September 25, Cleveland County reported 16,794 cases of Coronavirus and 280 deaths. Those numbers are up, compared to what was shared at the Cleveland County Public Health Department’s press conference on September 20. Community transmission remains high at 14.57 percent, down slightly down from 17.6 percent reported the week before. The CDC considers five percent a low transmission rate and the county’s num-

bers more than triple that threshold. The CDC’s website now advises, “Everyone in Cleveland County, North Carolina should wear a mask in public, indoor settings.” According to the Centers for Disease Control, 45.4 percent of Cleveland County residents have been vaccinated for COVID-19. In the last week, 701 people were diagnosed with the virus. Those numbers rival those seen last January. Nine people died from the virus within the prior week, which can be determined from the change in deaths

reported during Cleveland County Public Health Department’s press conference of 271. As of Friday, that number had risen to 280. Average daily hospitalizations have increased also, rising from 78 people being hospitalized daily to 86 as of Friday. In a weeks’ time 701 people were hospitalized. During the two weeks prior to the press conference, 1,399 people tested positive, equating to almost 100 cases per day being reported. So, the county’s numbers went up slightly. In the county, 38,140

people have been fully vaccinated out of almost 100,000 residents. Individuals with one dose number 46,602. And seventy-two percent of seniors 65 and over have been fully vaccinated. Cleveland County began scheduling appointments for the Pfizer booster vaccine on Monday, September 27 for individuals 65 and older and individuals 18 and older with underlying medical conditions that put them at increased risk by calling the COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Line at 980-484-6019.

Pfizer-BioNTech may seek approval of COVID-19 vaccine for kids 5 – 11 By Loretta Cozart Pfizer-BioNTech announced on September 20 that their coronavirus vaccine has shown to be safe and effective for children ages 5 to 11. "Over the past nine months, hundreds of millions of people ages 12 and older from around

the world have received our COVID-19 vaccine. We are eager to extend the protection afforded by the vaccine to this younger population," Albert Bourla, Pfizer's chairman and CEO, said in a release addressing the results of its recent trial with children under 12 years old.

The trial included 2,268 children and two-thirds of them received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine three weeks apart. The control group received a saltwater placebo. The trial used a smaller dose than that given to people aged 12 and older. “We are planning for emergency use authorization sub-

mission for the older age group (for ages 5-11) in September or October of this year, and the younger group to follow soon thereafter,” Alejandra Gurtman, MD, Pfizer’s vice president of vaccine clinical research and development, said during a virtual symposium in July.

Pfizer COVID-19 booster shots available for high-risk groups Cleveland County scheduling appointments To strengthen and extend protections against severe illness, North Carolinians at high risk for serious illness or exposure who have been fully vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for six months or more can now receive a COVID-19 booster shot. “Cleveland County was prepared to begin scheduling appointments for the Pfizer booster vaccine on Monday, September 27 for individuals 65 and older and individuals 18 and older with underlying medical conditions that put them at increased risk of severe illness. It must be at least six months after receiving their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine,” said DeShay D. Oliver, Cleveland County Deputy Health Director. “Patients can schedule an appointment by calling the COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Line at 980-484-6019.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today announced the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot is recommended for individuals who have been fully vaccinated for six months or more with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. People who are 65 years or older, 18 years or older with underlying medical conditions or work in a high-risk setting like healthcare workers, teachers, and childcare providers, or food workers are eligible in North Carolina. "Pfizer boosters are now authorized for certain groups

of individuals to extend the protection of vaccines against severe illness," said NCDHHS Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. "If you are eligible, get your booster. If you aren’t vaccinated yet, don’t wait. The COVID-19 virus is more contagious than ever, and we are seeing it attack the unvaccinated and make them very sick at an alarming rate." Those eligible can find booster shots at their health care provider, pharmacies, and other locations where COVID-19 vaccines are available. There is no need for people to go back to the location where they received their original vaccines — most COVID-19 vaccination locations can provide Pfizer boosters. Visit MySpot. nc.gov and check “Pfizer-BioNTech (age 12+)” to search locations and ensure Pfizer is available. The CDC’s decision follows the Food and Drug Administration authorizing boosters for certain populations on Wednesday, Sept. 22. If you have questions about whether to get a Pfizer booster, NCDHHS encourages you to talk to a medical professional to get their opinion. North Carolina’s actions are based on recommendations from the CDC. Read the CDC’s full statement here. NCDHHS encourages everyone 5 and older to get vaccinated against COVID19 and to continue to practice the 3 Ws — wear a mask, wait six feet apart and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer to protect yourself and others.

In January this year, Proper’s dream of becoming a K-9 handler became a reality. “He hand-picked his partner, Bronco, and the two were inseparable.” Chief Proctor said. “I was honored to award him several Region C Citations.” “I’m going to miss Carl. He and I talked a lot. I keep an open-door policy and he would often come by to chat or to ask for prayer. He was a great officer and knew how to make people laugh,” Chief Proctor remembers. “I am very glad he achieved his dream of becoming a K9 handler.

The Blessing of Animals Service is held the first Sunday of October annually and is recognized worldwide. If you wish to participate in this event, bring your pet and join Association for the Welfare of Animals on the Court Square of Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby on October 3 at 6:30 pm. A minister will deliver the service and bestow a hands-on blessing, upon the pet owners’ request, for animals whose temperament allows. (For the

safety of all, your pet should be contained, or on a leash, and current on all vaccines.) Saint Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of animals, the environment, was an Italian Catholic friar and preacher. He founded the men’s Franciscan Order, the women’s Order of St. Clare, and the lay Third Order of Saint Francis. St. Francis is one of the most venerated religious figures in history. In 1223, Francis arranged for the first Christmas manger scene. In 1224, he received the stigmata, making him the first

person to bear the wounds of Christ’s Passion. He died in 1226 while singing Psalm 141. On July 16, 1228, he was pronounced a saint by Pope Gregory IX. He is one of the two patrons of Italy (with Catherine of Siena), and it is customary for Catholic and Anglican churches to hold ceremonies blessing animals on his feast day of 4 October, but the event may be celebrated at any time of the year.

Persistent Prayers P e r sistent is defined as continuing firmly in a course of action despite difficulty or opposition. JEFF WILSON I wonPastor der if the First Church problem of the Nazarene today with a lot of our prayer lives is that we are not persistent. Luke chapter 11 verses 9 and 10 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will

find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” The point Jesus is making with His disciples is that if they would only ask, be persistent in their asking, God would respond. According to Jesus, God’s response will be giving the disciples, and in turn us, more of His Holy Spirit. For many Christians today, difficult situations arise, and they skip right past the persistence of asking, seeking, and knocking for the Holy Spirit and get right into asking, seeking, and knocking for the answers they have already de-

termined to be the proper solution. I believe many of our problems would disappear if we would pray more persistently for the Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives. Romans tells us the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness and gives us a hope that we can boast about. In fact, if we would pray for more of the Holy Spirit, according to Romans, the Holy Spirit will then intercede for us in our continuing prayer lives. Asking, seeking, and knocking on Heaven’s door for more of the Holy Spirit, will ensure that we have more of the Holy Spirit to ask, seek, and knock for us in the future. That sounds like a win, win situation if I’ve

ever heard one. The Gospel of John says that the Holy Spirit will teach us. 1 Corinthians says that through the Holy Spirit our God given gifts are manifested for the common good. Galatians says that the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Again, sounds like the Holy Spirit is coming with all kinds of answers for us. Maybe you should join me in being more persistent in your prayer life. Just stubborn enough to keep knocking and asking God for more of the Holy Spirit.

“New Kings Mountain Story” video trilogy – again By Loretta Cozart

Constitution Week was September 17-23 By Robin Masters Meyer

Recently we celebrated an important document from our Nation’s history. A document that is as relevant today as it was at the founding of our Country. As a member of the Colonel Frederick Hambright Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution I am proud of one of our leaders who was instrumental in establishing September 17-23 as National Constitution Week. Before I go into that story, I want to point out something that has struck me as important in recent months concerning the beginning of that document. Have any of you had to memorize the preamble to the U.S. constitution? For most of my life I had it memorized thanks to a cartoon series that used to be very popular called School House Rock. They put it to a catchy tune, and I can still sing it to this day. The preamble to the U.S. Constitution begins with the following: “We the People of the United States of America…”. I’ll say that again, “WE THE PEOPLE.” It doesn’t say “We the Continental Congress” or “we the landowners” or “we the legislature” or “we the President”. It says WE THE PEOPLE. It is our document. It was established by the people for the people. If you listen carefully, this one paragraph says everything that is important for a nation to survive and thrive. It’s a powerful paragraph when you really think about the meaning behind the words: “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic

tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” So, what does the Preamble to the Constitution have to do with DAR. We are a PATRIOTIC Lineage Society, and the objectives of our Society are the same today as they were at our National founding 131 years ago – Historic Preservation, Education, and Patriotism. Each year September 17-23 is designated Constitution Week. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started in 1955 by the Daughters of the American Revolution. Our then President General Gertrude S. Carraway (who was from New Bern, North Carolina) was responsible for the annual designation of Constitution Week. You see, DAR made its own resolution for Constitution Week, which was adopted April 21, 1955. The National Society then petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into Public Law #915 on August 2, 1956, by Miss Carraway’s good friend, President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Today, Constitution Week is celebrated by setting up displays in schools and libraries, obtaining city proclamations, providing copies of the Constitution and Bells Across America. This is an event that is always scheduled for September 17 at 4:00 p.m. For one minute church and inn pan. Mix soup, water, beef gravy, pepper and dried onions together. Pour over steak.

When something good works well, do it again. That’s why the “New Kings Mountain Story” video trilogy is available again this year for you to watch during the 241st anniversary of the Battle of Kings Mountain. And this year you’ll find even more videos, audios, and stories about the American Revolution era in North Carolina. Find them at BecomingAmerica250.com. Enjoy viewing them all free online from wherever you are. “But remember,” says author and video producer Randell Jones, “the ‘New Kings Mountain Story’ video trilogy is available only for a few weeks, September 22 through October 17.” Still, that’s plenty of time to watch and learn this special story, he says. All the other offerings at BecomingAmerica250.com will be there continually as America approaches its 250th anniversary of independence. Find the “New Kings Mountain Story” video trilogy at BecomingAmerica250.com. Look for “History Highlights” and then scroll down to “1780.” You’ll also want to watch “The Revolution Around the Regulators” to see a 30-minute overview of the American Revolution as experienced in North Carolina. And, under “1771,” you can read and listen about the War of the Regulation, history unique to North Carolina, history which sets the stage for the Battle of Kings Mountain. The Kings Mountain Historical Museum, who sponsored the video trilogy for local viewers last year, is also offering a link to the videos this fall through BecomingAmerica250.com. The “New Kings Mountain Story” video trilogy tells you

the history that will help you better understand the role of backcountry militiamen in the Southern Campaign and their contribution to winning the American Revolution. “Together, these videos provide the backstory, the epilogue, and the real history surrounding the story at the core of the stage drama ‘Liberty Mountain,’” says Jones, “a theatrical experience we all hope will start again in summer 2022.” All the videos have music and dramatic narration, telling the story with maps, artwork, and images of reenactors captured at 12 years of reenactments around the Southeast. Each video is 35-40 minutes. “The story of the Battle of Kings Mountain is a big story,” Jones contends. “It is more than can be told at one time because it is more than just the battle.” The story of the muster, the march, the pursuit, and the battle are shared in the first video, “The American Spirit, 1780.” This is the story which prompted the creation of the 330-mile Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail in 1980, North Carolina’s premiere national historic trail.

dependent scholars in North Carolina. It explains how the South Carolina militiamen got to the battle along with Lincoln County (NC) militiamen. “It turns out,” declares Jones, “they marched as far as anybody else to get to a battle that was in their own backyard.” That story, told in “A Broader, Bolder Kings Mountain Story,” takes the Kings Mountain Story onto new landscapes and reveals new heroes. “The third video starts where most people stop paying attention to the story,” Jones says. “This is the story of what happened after the loyalist surrendered on October 7, 1780.” The title gives viewers a hint: “Tired, Cold, and Hungry—the ‘death march’ of prisoner after Kings Mountain.” The patriot militiamen marched away 800 prisoners, Jones says, and two weeks later, they descended upon the unsuspecting Moravians at Bethabara where the victors and prisoners ate this German-speaking community of Christians out of house and home for weeks. Watch the “New Kings Mountain Story” video trilogy during September and early October. It’s a story of courage and determination and cooper-

KM’s Thomas Feemster (24) runs behind the blocking of Alex Jackson in last week’s win over North Gaston.

Mountaineers rout Wildcats 56-0, Forestview here Hoyle ties pass interception record Friday to battle After having to punt on their first possession, Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers scored on eight of their next nine possessions and rolled to a 56-0 running clock victory over North Gaston Friday night at John Gamble Stadium. Meanwhile, the KM defense was turning the Wildcats every way but loose. They had only 30 yards total offense in each half with 20 of their second half yards coming on their last possession. “We played well, for sure,” noted Coach Greg Lloyd. “Everybody played really well but the competition ramps up this week, for sure” when the Mountaineers host

a solid Gastonia Forestview eleven. KM’s offensive assault began after a Peyton Fisher punt was downed at the North Gaston nine. The visiting Wildcats were held to three and out and had to punt. KM then began the rout when Zay Smith returned the kick 34 yards to the Wildcats’ 24 yard line. A holding penalty during that run caused the Mountaineers to start on the ‘Cats 35 yard line. After a 19-yard run by Thomas Feemster and a six yard pass reception by Fisher, Robert Kendrick took a handoff from quarterback Lamont Littlejohn and scored from 10 yards out. Jaden Ellis’ point after touchdown made it 7-0

and the rout was on. The two teams traded 15yard penalties and a sack by Seth Neal forced the Wildcats to punt from their own five yard line. The Mountaineers took just six plays to score with AJ Richardson going in from six yards out for a 14-0 lead. Two plays later, Deandre Hoyle recorded the first of his record-tying three interceptions on the night and returned it from the 50 to the North Gaston 23. Four plays later quarterback Jonah Patrick found Peyton Fisher wide open in the end zone for a 22-yard TD pass and a 21-0 lead. The Mountaineer defense held North to three and out

again and after a partially blocked punt took over at the Wildcats’ 32. A 13-yard reception by Hoyle and a nineyard rush by Smith set up AJ Richardson’s eight-yard TD run for a 28-0 lead. After the kickoff, Hoyle made his second interception on North’s first play, but North later picked off a Patrick pass. The Wildcats were able to pick up a first down and have five offensive touches, but the fifth resulted in Hoyle’s third interception at the 48 and return to the North 23. On second and six, Kendrick went 19 yards around left end to make it 35-0. (Former Mountaineers with three interceptions in a See WILDCATS, Page 3B

KM spikers blank Crest to take sole lead in BSC Kings Mountain’s JVs were also victorious, 25-10, 25-12. Sara Kate Bridges had 14 assists, two kills, four digs and four service points. Alexa Jones had eight kills, three digs and 12 service points. London Brown had four kills, a block, five digs and four service points and Addi Peeler had 14 service points, five digs and eight serve receptions. Kings Mountain, 10-1 overall, was scheduled to host a good Ardrey Kell team in a non-conference game Monday and Hunter Huss in a Big South game Tuesday. Then, the Lady Mountaineers will hit the road for BSC games at North Gaston on September 30 and Forestview October 5. Their next home game will be October 7 against South Point.

Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers will face their toughest test since their opening game with Shelby when Forestview’s Jaguars come to John Gamble Stadium Friday for a 7:30 p.m. Big South Conference game. Both teams go into the contest with unbeaten 2-0 records in the Big South. With Crest and South Point also unbeaten in the BSC at this point and Stuart Cramer and Gastonia Ashbrook definite threats to anyone, Friday’s contest could have playoff implications. Forestview has shown tremendous improvement since dropping its first two games to Burns 8-6 and East Lincoln 31-17. They edged perennial Western power Freedom 13-7 in their final non-conference bout before opening Big South play with a 43-30 win over North Gaston and shutting out a talented Ashbrook eleven last

week, 24-0. A very experienced team with 15 seniors and 13 juniors – many of whom have started since their freshman year - the Jaguars are strong on both offense and defense and, as usual, have a tremendous kicking game. Their defense has shown tremendous improvement each week and is averaging over two sacks per game. Their senior quarterback, Austin Parker, is 6-4 and completing a high percentage of his passes. Senior running back Camury Reid is a strong running and receiving threat with over 300 yards in both categories. Another top receiver is junior Nathan Aguilar who is averaging over 17 yards per catch. “Forestview is a very good team,” said Mountaineer coach Greg Lloyd. “I think you could put us, Crest, See FORESTVIEW, Page 4B

Kings Mountain High’s women’s volleyball team took over sole possession of first place in the Big South 3A Conference Thursday at Parker Gym with a 3-0 victory over Crest. The two teams went into the final game of the first round tied for the lead.

Jake Lloyd (4) is in the clear against the North Gaston defense in Friday’s game at Gamble Stadium. KM won 56-0.

WILDCATS From Page 1B game were Chris Johnson vs. North Gaston in 1975, Petie McNeil vs. Burns in 1989 and Tyrese Crawford vs. Burns in 2011). On the Mountaineers’ first possession of the third quarter, Jake Lloyd got off a 21 yard run to the North 12. Feemster’s seven-yard TD run was called back on a holding penalty, but he got off a 10-yard run to set up a two-yard TD run by Smith. That put the running clock rule into effect. On second and eight from their own 22, the Wildcats coughed up the ball at the 17. Feemster covered the distance in two runs – the latter for a yard – and Ellis’ PAT made it 49-0. Feemster then left the game with a team-leading 75 yards on 12 carries.

North was able to pick up a first down, but sophomore Bryson Brown intercepted a pass with 10:45 left in the game. Sophomore Micah Ward carried the ball four times for 33 of his 55 rushing yards. After Patrick kept it for a 10-yard gain, Ward carried it four more times for 22 yards to set up Patrick’s three-yard TD with 4:25 remaining. Max Thompson’s PAT accounted for the final 56th point. For the game the Mountaineers were perfect on extra points, with Ellis kicking six and Thompson two. North was finally able to pick up two first downs and get the ball to the KM 41 before the clock ran out.

KM’s Kaliyah Watson wins BSC golf match Kings Mountain High’s only player, freshman Kaliyah Watson, shot a 46 to take medalist honors in Monday’s Big South Conference golf match at Kings Mountain Country Club. Crest took team honors with a 147, followed by Stuart Cramer with 166

and Ashbrook with 202. Kings Mountain and other BSC schools did not have enough players to qualify for a team score. KM’s next match is Tuesday at Lincoln Country Club. North Gaston will be the host.

FORESTVIEW

“They lost a couple games early but they are improving each week,” Lloyd noted. “They have one of the strongest defenses and one of the best running games in the area. They have a lot of seniors and I’m sure they are hungry and ready to play their best game against us.” “This is going to be the toughest test we’ve had since the Shelby game,” Lloyd noted. “They have size and one of the strongest teams we’ve seen. This is going to be a big test, for sure.”

From Page 1B South Point and Forestview in a hat and all have a chance to win the conference. They have a lot of seniors. I’m sure they are hungry and rewady to play their best game against us.” This will be the 17th meeting between Lloyd and Forestview Coach Chris Medlin since the two left East Gaston in 2007 to take their current positions. They’ve faced each other not just in conference play, but also in state playoff games.

Local Parks Projects awarded McIntyre gift funds by Parks and Recreation Authority The Parks and Recreation Authority has awarded three local park projects a total of $491,893 in grants from the bequest of Ms. Barbara McIntyre to the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF). All three selected projects are in Tier 1 Counties. Local park-project proposals from across the state were evaluated based on inclusion of child-focused facilities and activities, ADA accessibility, and environmental education. The Parks and Recreation Authority (Authority), a nine-member appointed board, awarded funds

to Hoke County and the towns of Grover and Roseboro. The Authority will discuss awarding an additional $132,575 from the bequest to be used for local park projects at their meeting on September 24. Town of Grover in Cleveland County was awarded $168,562 for improvements to Grover Town Park, including a new basketball court, playground equipment, and an accessible paved walking track. • Hoke County was awarded $269,587 for “Inclusive Hoke,” a playground that will be built

at the new James A. Leach Aquatic and Recreation Center. The equipment will allow individuals of all physical abilities to access a safe and welcoming play area with sensory play elements. • • Town of Roseboro in Sampson County was awarded $53,744 for the redevelopment of Roseboro Park with a new, accessible playground and amenities for an attractive, safe area for families to recreate. Ms. McIntyre gifted over $1 million dollars to the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund upon her passing in 2019. Of the total

Simple and Inexpensive Final Farewells Dear Savvy Senior, My husband and I are looking for the simplest and least expensive way to dispose of our bodies when we die. We hate the idea of wasting a lot of money on high-priced funerals and would like some advice on some simple and cheap send-offs. Simple Seniors

Dear Simple, With the average cost of a full-service funeral running around $11,000 today, many people are seeking simple ways to make their final farewell more affordable. Depending on how you want to go, here are several low-cost options to consider. Direct Cremation If you and your husband are interested in cremation, a direct cremation is the simplest and least expensive way to go. It includes picking up the body, completing and filing the necessary paperwork, the cremation itself and returning the cremated remains to the family. There’s no embalming, formal viewing or casket. A simple cardboard box called an “alternative container” is used to hold the body.

Depending on where you live and the funeral home you choose, the average cost for a direct cremation runs between $1,000 and $3,000. If you want additional services beyond what a direct cremation offers, ask the funeral home for an itemized price list that covers the other services cost, so you know exactly what you’re getting. All providers are required by law to provide this.

To locate nearby funeral homes, look in your local yellow pages, or Google “cremation” or “funeral” followed by your city and state. You can also get good information online at Parting. com, which lets you compare prices from funeral providers in your area based on what you want. Immediate or Direct Burial If you’re interested in being buried, an immediate/direct burial is the most basic and low-cost option. With an immediate burial, your body would be buried in a simple container shortly after death, skipping the embalming, viewing and use of the funeral facilities.

If your family wants a memorial service, they can have it at the graveside at your place of worship or at home without the body.

These services usually cost between $1,800 and $3,500, not counting cemetery charges, which can run you an additional $1,000 to $3,000. All funeral homes offer direct burial. Green Burial An eco-friendly green burial is another affordable way to go that costs anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 depending on the provider. With a green cemetery burial, the body is buried in a biodegradable coffin or just wrapped in a shroud, without embalming chemicals or a burial vault. The Green Burial Council (GreenBurialCouncil.org, 888-966-3330) has a state listing of cemetery operators who accommodate green burials, as well as funeral professionals who provide the services. Anatomical Donation If you’d like to eliminate your cremation/burial costs all together, as well

as help advance medical research, you and your husband should consider donating your bodies to science. This option won’t cost you a cent, however, some programs may charge a small fee to transport your body to their facility. After using your body for medical research projects, anatomy lessons and surgical practice, your remains will be cremated and your ashes will be buried or scattered in a local cemetery or returned to your family, usually within a year.

To locate accredited university medical school body donation programs in your state, see the University of Florida’s U.S. program directory at Anatbd. acb.med.ufl.edu/usprograms, or call the whole-body donation referral service during business hours at 800-7270700. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
