Governor signs On the Border: The Ultimate Eagles Executive Order Tribute to Perform at Patriots Park Thursday, Governor Roy Cooper signed an Executive Order to make it easier for GOV. COOPER North Carolinians to access treatment for COVID-19. The Executive Order authorizes and directs State Health Director, Dr. Betsey Tilson, to issue a statewide standing order to expand access to monoclonal antibody treatment, which if taken early can decrease the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death. The Order will be in effect through November 30, 2021. “Expanding access to monoclonal antibody therapy will help more patients across the state get this highly effective COVID-19 treatment,” said Governor Cooper. “In addition to getting more people vaccinated, we need to do all we can to save the lives of people who become infected.”

The Governor has previously directed, and affirmed the State Health Director’s authority to direct, the issuance of statewide standing orders to facilitate COVID19 vaccination and testing efforts, most recently in Executive Order No. 229. The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (“NCDHHS”) reports that while they have seen an increase in the number of providers who are administering monoclonal antibody treatment, there is still limited capacity to administer this medication among the state’s primary care providers and providers not associated with a health system. A statewide standing order for monoclonal antibody treatment will make it easier for people with COVID-19 symptoms, particularly those with less access to a regular health care provider, to get this potentially life-saving treatment. Under the order, treatment could be provided in a medical supervised community setting, such as part of COVID-19 testing sites. “We want to do everything possible to help people recover from COVID See ORDER, Page 8A

As Ms. Deal collected her belongs an argument ensued, and Mr. Curtis shot her once

NICHOLAS ERIC CURTIS in the head. Detectives believe that Mr. Curtis then called 911 to report a breaking & entering to justify the shooting.

Kings Mountain, North Carolina

Law enforcement held safe roads event Cleveland County Deputies along with North Carolina State Highway Patrol, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, South Carolina Highway Patrol, and Gaffney Police Department conducted its annual “Hands Across the Border” Safe Roads Event on September 1. “Hands Across the Border” is a collaboration between law enforcement officers whose states join geographically with South Carolina and includes Florida. This event brings together law enforcement officials in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia to conduct joint public safety checkpoints aimed at keeping drunk and drugged drivers off the roads in the participating states and is part of the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. Officers from each state meet at their respective state-lines and conduct traffic checkpoints together. This event builds working relationships between agencies as well as working to make the roads safer for the motoring public. This year the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office issued nine citations for 16 criminal charges, arrested four people including one with five outstanding warrants for arrest, and one for Driving while Impaired. The deputies recovered one illegal firearm as well as Methamphetamine, Ecstasy, and Marijuana.

Wednesday, September 8, 2021

TODAY’S QUOTE:

For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Pieces of Kings Mountain History Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of 9-11, when terrorists LORETTA few two COZART planes into the Twin Towers in New York City and carried out an attack on our country. While Americans were stunned by this senseless

act of terrorism, they were also empowered to make sure those responsible paid for those actions. Innocent Americans died during this attack: 2,750 in New York City, 184 at the Pentagon, and 40 in a a remote field in Pennsylvania. And more than 400 police officers and fire-fighters

gave their lives helping those in need. That day, Mychal Fallon Judge, an American Franciscan friar, and Catholic priest, who served as a chaplain to the New York City Fire Department, died while giving aid to victims and fire-fighters. These are the lives we should remember, the innocent victims.

What would those 3,374 people think of what is going on in America today? I doubt they would be happy with the state of our nation, no matter their political affiliation. We are the United States of America, not factions. We are neither north or south, nor east or west. We are one nation, and

we need to work to rebuild our country and heal the wounds of divisiveness. How can we do that? It is a tough question and one worth our attention because what we do now determines the future of our country, the future of our children, and the future of their children’s chil-

Looking Back This photocopy of a photograph in the Kings Mountain Historical Museum Collections shows the store front of Patterson’s Grocery Company, located at 133 West Mountain Street in Kings Mountain, NC. There are several men standing in front of the store, and it is believed one is the elected town constable. The photograph dates to 1880. Donor: Miss Leone Patterson

dren. It will be a tough job that we must face with strength and conviction. Defunding the police is a stupid notion. I say this because the police, and first responders for that matter, are our lifeline. When we are in dire need, they are the ones we call. They see the best and the worst of our society. Our fire and medic do the same. They work long hours and get little thanks. And somehow, they feel called to continue in this work, day after day, after day. In December, Police Officer Tyler Herndon gave the ultimate sacrifice while responding to a call in Mt. Holly. This year, Cpl. Frank Lee Whittington, Jr. was injured while responding to a call in Kings Mountain. The community rallied behind the families to support them. And the police and first responders felt that love and support. If you feel called to support our police, fire, and medics, attend the 9/11 Memorial Service at Kings Mountain Fire Department Station #1 at City Hall on Saturday, September 11, at 10 a.m. to let them know that you appreciate them and the work they do for the people of Kings Mountain. It is a small gesture and good start to the healing we as a country need.

Catawba Two Kings East/West Rivals, Gardner-Webb and Casino seeing success Campbell Announce BBQ Bowl Game Special to the Herald Since the Catawba Two Kings Casino opened the doors of its pre-launch facility on July 1, guests have been enjoying a thrilling, new gaming destination 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The casino has been a dream of the Catawba Nation for a decade, and even though it’s not quite complete, there is still a lot to celebrate during the first weeks of the pre-launch facility’s opening. Throughout the first weeks of its opening, the Catawba Two Kings Casino has seen over 100,000 guests come through the front doors. With over 500 slot machines to choose from, guests can win big and have fun. There have been dozens of jackpots won since the casino’s opening, including several $10,000 cashouts and even one guest going home with a $75,000 jackpot! Popular games like Panda Magic and Golden Century seem to be crowd favorites for casino guests. The Community and Business Impact of the Casino. The Catawba Two Kings Casino has had a positive impact on the community. Kings Mountain officials have commented that since its opening, the casino has brought in more crowds and revenue for local businesses, including shops and restaurants. The casino is also participating as a sponsor for Kings Mountain city events and activities, helping draw in more attendees from other areas. Kings Mountain mayor Scott Neisler commented, “They have really shown they want to be a part of the community in a positive way.” It’s not just the area of Kings Mountain that is seeing positive trends since the opening of the casino. Trent Troxel, vice president of the Catawba Nation Gaming Authority and Catawba Nation citizen, explained “The opportunities are

endless for the next generation.” Mike Ulizio, president of the Catawba Nation Gaming Authority commented, “The casino will help increase resources available for the Catawba Nation to improve their quality of life.” In addition to adding an entertaining, profitable attraction to the area, the Catawba Two Kings Casino is responsible for providing jobs to 235 employees thus far. In April 2020, the Catawba Nation’s unemployment rate was 13.8 percent. However, this number is predicted to shrink as the growing Catawba Two Kings Casino creates jobs for Catawba citizens, as well as the Kings Mountain community. Ninety of the 235 employees are Kings Mountain residents, and 34 are Catawba Citizens. What to know before you go. If you’ve yet to visit the Catawba Two Kings Casino, but you’re ready to stop in - here’s a list of tips that can help prepare you to have the best experience possible. Get directions. The casino is located at 538 Kings Mountain Blvd. Kings Mountain, North Carolina, 28086 - less than 40 miles west of Charlotte. Use Exit 5 on I-85, turn right onto Dixon School Road, and continue onto Kings Mountain Blvd. The casino is not far from Exit 5. Sign up for the Lucky North Club. One of the best ways to enjoy the Catawba Two Kings Casino and all it has to offer is by signing up for the Lucky North Club before your visit. This rewards and loyalty program offers benefits to its card holders. Using the Lucky North Club Card is the easiest way to

enjoy the gaming experience. While you’re there. Don’t forget to take your ID with you! Guests are required to show ID for all large jackpot payouts. If you forgot to bring cash with you, ATMs are available. If you work up an appetite during your gameplay, there is a limited food and beverage menu available for guests. As of now, no alcohol is available for purchase. Plan to visit in the afternoon. According to Mike Ulizio, president of the Catawba Nation Gaming Authority, "The casino certainly sees larger crowds during the day but is attracting a good number of players during the night and early morning." If you’re looking to avoid the crowds due to social distancing or just to prevent waiting for a certain machine, consider visiting in the afternoon. Times for specific promotions vary, and guests should sign up for emails through the Lucky North Club to learn more about them. Stay safe while you play. The Catawba Two Kings Casino is practicing safety procedures and protocols to best protect guests and employees from COVID-19. All employees are required to wear a mask, and guests are encouraged to wear one as well. Disposable masks are available for guests when they enter the casino. “We have worked with Cintas to provide proper cleaning materials to sanitize the facility,” Mike Ulizio explains. The future is bright for Catawba Two Kings Casino. Even in just the first weeks of its opening, the Catawba Two Kings Casino is transforming the community around it for the better and is evolving into a major entertainment attraction. The city of Kings Mountain and the Catawba Nation have seen positive changes in their businesses, employment rates, and tourism.

Winner of Inaugural Rivalry Game Receives Hog Trophy and a Barbecue Feast

G a r d ner-Webb University and Campbell University announced today that the DOWNS two schools’ football programs will compete annually for the North Carolina East/ West BBQ Trophy, beginning this season. The Runnin’ Bulldogs and Fighting Camels renew their intra-conference rivalry on Saturday, Oct. 9, in Boiling Springs. Kickoff for the inaugural rivalry game is set for 6 p.m. in Ernest W. Spangler Stadium. The winner of the game each year will hoist and host the well-built, hefty trophy— topped with a decorative hog and adorned with a placard to engrave each year’s winning team and score. On hand to present the trophy will be North Carolina BBQ expert, Bob Garner. Garner has written three books on North Carolina’s favorite food and has appeared on Food Network, ABC’s “Good Morning America,” the Travel Channel’s “Road Trip,” and he produces specials for PBS North Carolina. Most importantly, the losing team will be tasked with supplying a barbecue feast from its region—eastern-style for the Camels, western or Lexington-style for the Bulldogs—to the winning side.

“A good, spirited crossstate rivalry in football can add tons of energy to the college game,” explained Gardner-Webb President Dr. William Downs. “I grew up in ACC country, so I know full well how fans look forward to Rivalry Week each year. I also love good BBQ, and North Carolina is home to some seriously heated competition between western-style and eastern-style. I’m grateful to Campbell’s President, Dr. Creed, for agreeing to combine two things we all love— sports and eating—into this annual pigskin battle. And just to get the rivalry off on the right foot, I apologize in advance to Camel Nation for GWU’s victory on October 9.” Gardner-Webb and Campbell first met on the football field as junior colleges on Nov. 16, 1929. The Fighting Camels took a 21-6 win that day in Buies Creek. The programs have played 12 times total, with Campbell holding a 5-4-3 edge in the series. The teams did not meet from 1950 until 2018, when Gardner-Webb came away with a 35-7 win in Buies Creek. Campbell won the most recent meeting in triple overtime, surviving for a 49-47 win in Boiling Springs. The two campuses are separated by 165.5 miles as the crow flies – and 218 miles by

car. “A healthy, good-natured athletics rivalry between schools like Campbell and Gardner-Webb is not only fun for our fans, it also treats the spirit of our institutions in good and positive ways,” said Campbell President Dr. J. Bradley Creed. “Campbell is grateful to compete with such a talented group of programs in the Big South Conference and our rivalry with Gardner-Webb on the gridiron is clearly going to reach a new level of intensity this fall. There’s much more on the line than just a victory on the football field; North Carolina BBQ is up for grabs! The stakes are high! I am grateful to President Downs at Gardner-Webb for his willingness to be a good sport and friend to me and the Campbell family. When the Camels come to Boiling Springs, fear the hump!” Both schools’ athletics programs compete as full members of the Big South Conference. Season tickets, season parking passes, along with single-game tickets and parking for Gardner-Webb football are available online at GWUSports.com or by calling (704) 406-4340 during regular business hours.

Let Them Grow Together Have you ever heard someone say, “be in the world and not of it’ and wonder what in the world they meant? Often, this misquoted JEFF WILSON Pastor verse from John First Church 15 leads beof the Nazarene lievers to stand in judgment of those whom they believe to be “of the world”. Paul writes in 1Corinthians 5:9-10, “I wrote to you in my

letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world.” As a Christ follower, we are not asked to “leave this world”. In fact, we are asked to be—to exist—in the world. What if God has placed you right where you are, “in this world” so you can have a positive impact on those who don’t yet know Jesus? Jesus shared in the parable of the weeds found in Matthew chapter 13, that a landowner sowed good seed (wheat) in his field. When ev-

eryone was sleeping, the landowner’s enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat. Naturally, when the wheat and weeds began to grow, the landowner’s workers noticed that they had more than wheat growing in their fields and believed the growth of the weeds put the wheat crop in jeopardy. When the workers went to the landowner to ask permission to uproot the weeds in order to save the wheat harvest, the landowner responded, “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time, I

will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.” (Matthew 13:28-29 NIV) One beautiful aspect of being a Christ follower is that we are asked to focus on growing and not on pulling weeds! And we are asked to grow alongside the weeds, in the very same soil. When you find yourself planted among the weeds—be thankful! God has called you to grow together until the harvest. Be a good influence. Period.

Serve with dipping sauces and sprinkle with fresh parsley, if desired.

Cap Off Game Day with an All-Star Combo Pregame festivities call for salty snacks and meaty morsels, but halftime eating and postgame celebrations are perfect for sweet treats. You can sweeten up your tailgate or homegate with a shareable option like Marbled Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies made with Domino Golden Sugar, which is made from pure cane sugar and dissolves and measures cup for cup just like white granulated sugar without compromising performance or taste.

Find more tailgating sweets at dominosugar.com.

Score Big with a Salsa-Based Dip

Mexican Pizza Dip

Whether your game day celebrations call for a full-blown parking lot party or homegating with your closest friends, the nibbles and noshes you serve set the stage. Building your menu with crowd-pleasing classics – including one triedand-true favorite that offers a fresh, veggieforward taste: chilled salsa – makes your guests cheer for more than just the home team. Healthy game day snacks are important to almost half (48%) of tailgaters and 18% said they’d consider leaving a party if salsa wasn’t served, according to the “Game Day Eats Report” survey from refrigerated salsa brand Fresh Cravings. With its low calorie count packed with high flavor, salsa supports health-conscious goals. Made with ingredients like fresh tomatoes, crisp vegetables, zesty peppers and more, the authentic taste of chilled salsa is a universal favorite among fans. With a belief that plant-based foods should contain wholesome ingredients and bold flavors worth celebrating, Fresh Cravings refrigerated salsas are available in the produce section, next to dressings and dips, in restaurant-style or chunky mild, medium and hot varieties. Chilled salsa is an affordable and vibrant-tasting alternative to jarred salsa, making it a key ingredient in this Mexican Pizza Dip from celebrity chef George Duran. It’s a simple crowd-pleaser you can make in less than an hour, leaving more time for pregame festivities. For more information and game day recipe ideas, visit freshcravings.com.

ORDER From Page 1 and keep them out of the hospital,” said NCDHHS Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. “Get tested right away if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Treatment for COVID must be given within 10 days of symptoms starting and before someone becomes sick enough to need the hospital." While vaccines provide the best protection from COVID-19, treatment options such as Monoclonal Antibodies are available if you have had symptoms of COVID-19 for 10 days or less or have been exposed to COVID-19. If taken early, they can reduce

the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death. Ask your doctor about Monoclonal Antibodies or call the Combat COVID Monoclonal Antibodies Call Center at 1-877-332-6585 (English) or 1-877-366-0310 (Spanish). Monoclonal antibodies are proteins made in a laboratory to fight infections, in this case, the virus that causes COVID-19, and are given to patients directly with an IV infusion or a shot. Some early evidence suggests this treatment can reduce the amount of the virus, or viral load, that causes COVID-19 in a person's body. Having a lower viral load may reduce the severity of symptoms and decrease the likelihood of hospitalization. The Order received concurrence from the Council of State.

Mountaineers are idle until September 17

AJ Richardson (15) powers the ball into the end zone for the Mountaineers in Friday’s win at Burns.

Mountaineers hand Burns first loss Kings Mountain and Burns showcased some good, young talent Friday night in their non-conference battle at Ron Greene Stadium in Fallston and when the dust settled the Mountaineers had handed the Bulldogs their first loss of the season, 19-14. After holding the Mountaineers to three-and-out to open the game, the Bulldogs marched right down the field to take a 7-0 lead on a 13-yard Ben Mauney to Kahari Surratt pass but the Mountaineers battled back to tie the game at 7-all at the half. Kings Mountain then built a 19-7 lead but had to hold off the Bulldogs in the final five minutes to take its second win in three outings heading into a break this week before beginning Big South Conference play on Friday, Sept. 17 at Hunter Huss. The Mountaineers, led by running backs Thomas Feemster and Robert Kendrick along with big defensive tackle AJ Richardson in short yardage situations, moved in for a tying TD on Kendrick’s five yard run and Jaden Ellis’s PAT with 58.6 seconds left in the half. The big plays of the drive came when the Mountaineers faced third and one at their own 45 yard line and See BURNS, Page 2B

Kings Mountain’s Mountaineers have an open date Friday, but beginning Friday, Sept. 17 they hope to continue their improvement and make a strong run in the Big South Conference and perhaps the state playoffs. With most of the starters gone from last year’s undefeated Big South Conference team, the Mountaineers are in a rebuilding year but it is going very well as they have posted impressive victories over Asheville and Burns since dropping their season opener to Shelby. Coach Greg Lloyd said he could not be happier with the Mountaineers’ 19-14 win last week over county rival Burns. “It was a big win for us,” he said. “I was pleased with the way the kids played. We got off to a rugged start but after that we played well and had a bunch of players that contributed. It was sort of a bend but don’t break defense, but we got them stopped. “Our offense was balanced,” he added. “AJ Richardson did a good job. He had some nice carries from the fullback position” while also standing out on the defensive line. “Lamont Littlejohn had some big throws, especially in the second half,” Lloyd

noted. “Everybody contributed. I was real pleased to get out of these first three games with a 2-1 record. “Deandre Hoyle made a couple of big plays with that interception and the long touchdown reception. He made up for the pass he dropped earlier in the game. “Alex Jackson and Isaiah Eskridge had good games on the offensive line. The whole line did a good job. “Peyton Fisher had a very good game,” Lloyd noted. “He didn’t come off the field. He is in excellent shape. “I was real pleased with everybody. It was pretty exciting. It was a good game.” Lloyd doesn’t know if he will be able to scout Hunter Huss this week. They are scheduled for an open date but have played only one game to date. “If they play this week we’ll go scout them,” Lloyd noted, “and then get ready for the rest of the season.” Lloyd said when the Mountaineers travel to Huss they should be at full strength. “We should have (running back) Caleb Holland back and he will be a big help,” Lloyd noted. “We’ve been well pleased with how well the other backs have played since he got hurt.”

Kings Mountain Hall of Fame set for October 9 The Kings Mountain Sports Hall of Fame will have a two-year induction ceremony Saturday, Oct. 9 at Central United Methodist Church. The 2020 ceremony had to be postponed because of the corona virus, and it will be held with the 2021 ceremony. After that the Hall of Fame committee will begin planning the 2022 event which

hopefully will be held next May. The 2021 inductees include professional baseball player Will Wilson, former KMHS basketball star Trina Hamrick and the man who is probably the winningest coach in Kings Mountain sports history, Monty Deaton. Deaton currently serves as golf and girls basketball See HALL, Page 2B

Kendrick went eight yards around the left side of the Burns defense for the tying score. Burns drove the second half kickoff to the KM 25 before misfiring on two straight passes and losing the ball on downs.

the SBCC since July 2015. In addition to serving as vice chair, he currently serves as chair of the Personnel Committee, chair of the Legislative Affairs Committee, as well as chair of the Staff Person of the Year Committee.

Westmoreland brothers help establish River Hill Refuge Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina is expanding services into Cleveland County with the aid of two Shelby natives who seek to provide refuge for children in need while honoring their late father, Dr. Ted G. Westmoreland. Brothers Jay and Wes Westmoreland donated acreage within their family’s River Hill Angus Farm near Shelby for the future site of three foster care homes to be owned by Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH). Baptist Children’s Homes will hold a public celebration and groundbreaking ceremony on September 11 at the property. “We see the needs of

so many disadvantaged children—their current circumstances are troubling,” explains Wes Westmoreland. “Our efforts come from a desire to provide a solution.” BCH Trustee Jay Westmoreland adds, “We look forward to children finding hope and refuge on the beautiful ridge at the farm. They will be able to see for miles. And with God’s help, they will figuratively glimpse a future of hope and healing.” River Hill Refuge’s mission is to bring freedom from the past and hope for the future to children in need. In addition to the property donation, the

brothers made a lead gift to build the first of the three foster care homes in memory of their father. Ted Westmoreland was a long-time veterinarian in Shelby and supporter of Baptist Children’s Homes. He began the farm in 1969 and for the next two decades, Jay and Wes enjoyed countless hours working with their father raising championship Angus cattle at River Hill. Wes remembers, “Dad demonstrated that hard work, patience, and integrity often lead to success. These are traits we would like to share with the children.” But success was never an

end unto itself. Jay stated, “Providing opportunity has always been important to our family. Our parents modeled generosity and we are delighted to be a part of providing opportunity for a bright future for children in Cleveland County.” There is a great and growing need for foster homes that can meet the needs of multiple children and siblings. “It has been a long-held dream to establish a location for children in this area of the state,” said Dr. Michael C. Blackwell, Baptist Children’s Homes President/CEO. “With the gracious support of the Westmoreland family, this dream is coming to fruition,

and children’s lives will be forever changed as a result.” Each home will have a set of BCH-recruited and licensed foster parents who care for as many as five children at one time. The foster parents will also have the ongoing support from BCH’s experienced Foster Care staff. The public is invited to the groundbreaking celebration to be held at the property on September 11, 2021. Barbecue lunch will be served at noon and the ceremony will begin at 12:45 p.m. Registration is required by Friday, August 27, 2021. Directions and details are available at www.

riverhillrefuge.org Despite the pandemic, River Hill Refuge is well on its way to reaching its $4.3 million capital campaign goal to build, furnish, and endow the foster homes. Anyone interested in helping with the expansion may contact Brenda Gray, BCH Executive Vice President of Development and Communications, at 336-689-4442 or bgray@bchfamily.org. BCH is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Thomasville that operates services to children and families in 30 communities throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Guatemala.

By JIM MILLER Editor

Could I Have COPD and Not Know It? Dear Savvy Senior, I have struggled with shortness of breath for several years now. I just thought I was getting old and fat, but a friend recently told me about COPD. So, my question is could I have COPD and not know it? Huffing and Puffing Dear Huffing, Yes. COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a progressive lung disease that affects an estimated 30 million Americans, but about half of them don’t know they have it. Many people mistake shortness of breath as a normal part of aging, or a result of being out of shape, but that’s not necessarily the case. COPD – a term used to describe a variety of lung diseases including emphysema and chronic bronchitis – develops slowly, so symptoms may not be obvious until damage has occurred. Symptoms can include an ongoing cough or a cough that produces a lot of mucus, lack of energy and/or shortness of breath especially during

physical activity, wheezing and chest tightness, blue lips or fingernails, or swelling in your feet, ankles or legs. Those most at risk are smokers or former smokers over age 40, and people who have had long-term exposure to other lung irritants like secondhand smoke, air pollution, chemical fumes and dust. There is also a rare genetic condition known as alpha-1-antitrypsin, or AAT deficiency that can increase the risks. If you’re experiencing any of the aforementioned symptoms, you need to get tested by your doctor. A simple breathing test called spirometry can tell if you have COPD, and if so, how severe it is. Early screening can also identify COPD before major loss of lung function occurs. If you do indeed have COPD, you need to know that while there’s no cure, there are things you can do to help manage symptoms and protect your lungs from further damage, including:

Quit smoking: If you smoke, the best thing you can do to prevent more damage to your lungs is to quit. To get help, the National Cancer Institute offers a number of smoking cessation resources at SmokeFree.gov or call 1-800-QUIT-NOW. Or ask your doctor about prescription antismoking drugs that can help reduce your nicotine craving. If you smoke marijuana for a medical condition, talk to your doctor about edible versions.

Avoid air pollutants: Stay away from things that could irritate your lungs like dust, allergens and strong fumes. Also, to help improve your air quality at home, remove dust-collecting clutter and keep carpets clean; run the exhaust fan when using smelly cleaning products, bug sprays or paint; ban smoking indoors; and keep windows closed when outdoor air pollution is high (see AirNow.gov for daily air-quality reports). Get vaccinated: The coronavirus and flu can cause serious problems for people who have COPD, so if you haven’t already done so, get vaccinat-

ed for COVID-19 and get a flu shot every fall to help avoid getting sick. Also ask your doctor about getting the pneumococcal immunizations for protection against pneumonia.

Take prescribed medications: Bronchodilators (taken with an inhaler) are commonly used for COPD. They help relax the airway muscles to make breathing easier. Depending on how severe your condition, you may need a short-acting version only for when symptoms occur, or a long-acting prescription for daily use. Inhaled steroids may also help reduce inflammation and mucus and prevent flare-ups. For more information, visit the COPD Foundation at COPDfoundation.org or call the COPD information line at 866-316-2673. 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.
